What Will Happen if We Take the Mark of the Beast?

What will happen if we take the markThe Season of the Mark of the Beast

It is the season of the mark of the beast. It has been on the lips of many people, especially here in Jamaica. That is because at this time, the proposed national identity card (NIDS) is suspected by some to be the mark.

Some say it is a prelude to the mark. Some say it is nonsense. Take a look as we breakdown the card biblically to see how it matches up against prophecy.

Whatever the card is though, mark or not, it makes the mark of the beast a current topic. If it is merely a prelude, then we also have an indication that we will see the prophesied mark during this generation.

A Biblical Look at the Mark of the beast - Is NIDS the Mark

 

Those Who Couldn’t Care Less

I have found in my conversations that there are mostly those who couldn’t care less about the mark. Some are saying, “what can we do if it is the mark?”

There is a sense of resignation to the fate of taking the mark by those who are (understandably) tied to the world system. This resignation is partly due to ignorance as to what it means to take it. The point is, maybe if we really knew what it meant, we would think twice, hence the need for this post.

Warning Against Taking The Mark

It is therefore an opportune time to see what the Bible says will happen if we take the mark of the beast. So we start with the stern warning from the book of Revelation:

Rev 14:9-11 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of Yahuah, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

The preceding verses tell of torment because of the wrath of Yahuah. However, it is verse 11 where we will start.

See what it means to take the mark in ones right hand or forehead.

 

He Will Take Away His Presence

Rev 14:11
And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

The first thing he will do is take away his presence. This will leave those with the mark tormented. Furthermore, those with the Holy Spirit who let their flesh lead them into taking the mark will also have it taken away. That is what David meant here:

Psa 51:11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

The loss of his presence is what will make those who take the mark tormented and not have any rest day and night. Without his presence there will be no peace.

For more clarity, take a look at: Is There A Difference Between the Presence of YHWH And Having His Holy Spirit?

Every Imagination of Man Will Be Evil

As a result, mankind will become more and more evil. Why? Now with dead spirits (without the Spirit of YHWH), man will only seek to satisfy the flesh.

The Mark of the Beast is upon us 728x180

Greed, covetousness, pride, lust, anger, strife, jealousy, vengeance, murder and every other negative emotions and actions will abound. Mankind will just be led by the works of the flesh (Gal 5:19-21). This is what the Messiah predicted here:

Mat 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

What happened in the days of Noe?

Gen 6:5 And ELOHIYM saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

There Will Be A Famine Of The Word

Tied in hand-in-hand with the taking away of his presence is a famine of the word. This will be in fulfillment of the Amos 8 prophecy:

Amo 8:11-12 Behold, the days come, saith Yahuah ELOHIM, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of Yahuah:

And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of Yahuah, and shall not find it.

This will happen because of the removal of the presence of the Father.

Don’t forget, the Bible is a spiritual book, not a text book. It requires the Spirit of the Father to fathom it. Without the Spirit, men will not be able to understand it, just as is the case with an unbeliever trying to understand it today.

A famine!

Men will be moving from person to person asking them to explain even simple spiritual things they previously understood. Because so many will take the mark, there will hardly be anyone around to expound.

A famine of the word.

Man Will Suffer From Disease(s)

Yahuah is consistent. He doesn’t change. As long as we know his Torah (law), we can understand his judgments. As part of the curse of the law (for our disobedience), he stated that:

Deu 28:27 Yahuah will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed.

Guess what? He also promised that to those who take the mark:

Rev 16:1-2 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of Elohim upon the earth.

And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

So all those who take the mark will break out into a harmful and vicious sore that is incurable. That is some serious suffering!

Those Who Take The Mark Will Be Killed

If the noisome and grievous sores were not enough, when the Messiah returns he will kill those who take the mark! Imagine that…the humble Lamb who did not rebel against evil, will be coming back to destroy the evil.

That is why the Bible says when he comes all the tribes of the earth will mourn. They will know they are not right with YHWH and not ready to see the Messiah:

Mat 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Now let us see what will happen when the Messiah returns.

Rev 19:17 — Rev 19:21
And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great Elohim;

That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great (See Rev 13:16).

And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse (Yahusha), and against his army.

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

And the remnant (the kings of the earth, their armies and all men who took the mark) were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

There it is: the destruction of all who take the mark of the beast. Wow. So we see, it is not a good look. As we say here in Jamaica, “a no nutten good” (it is nothing good).

 

The Lake of Fire

If a natural death is not enough, then there is the lake of fire. A lake of fire and brimstone is reserved for the devil and his angels (Rev 20:10, Rev 19:20). Sad to say, the Bible makes special mention of those who take the mark will also be going there.

Rev 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

 

Bleak Outlook For Those Who Take The Mark

So we wee a very bleak outlook for those who take the mark. I am weary just writing this chronicling what will happen. It just gets from bad to worst. There is no ease, no reprieve, no hope…nothing but destruction and damnation.

But still, almost all will take it; and here is why.

 

Cares of Life

Without the mark, we cannot buy and sell (do business). That means everything about life that we cared about will come to the forefront. “What can we do, we can’t do anything without it.”

How will we earn, how will our children go to school, how will we travel?

But what does the Bible advise us?

Luke 21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

Col 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

We have to set our minds on doing the will of the Father and having faith that he will shelter us through the storm (which only lasts a short time).

 

Business Concerns

Also, we might be considering to take the mark because we want to do business. We know we cannot live a normal life without the capacity to buy or sell (do business as usual).

One business man pointed to a nearby bank and said to me, “You see that bank, if I don’t take the mark I can’t go in there to buy that Kia (vehicle on display for sale in front of the bank).”

That says it all. A willingness to forgo our soul for the things of this world. However, what advice does the Bible give us?

Flee Babylon

Flee Babylon! His people are advised to flee Babylon. Why? He has not forsaken his people. He will take care of them in the wilderness.

We cannot see his protection and provision, but through faith, we must believe him. We must forsake Babylon.

Jer 51:5-6 For Israel hath not been forsaken, nor Judah of his Elohim, of Yahuah of hosts; though their land was filled with sin against the Holy One of Israel.

Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of YAHUAH’S vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence.

 

Short Time of Trouble/Great Tribulation

So Babylon (the current system) will be destroyed. What’s more, it will only be a short time of trouble (3 1/2 years).

Dan 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

Dan 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half (3 1/2 years); and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

So if we choose to take the mark to live comfortably, it will only be for a few years. Unfortunately, it will turn into torment.

There will be no peace day nor night, eventually a grievous, noisome sore and then death. And it gets even worse, we will also die the second death in the lake of fire.

Is it worth it? Is it not better to suffer for righteousness’ sake for a short while. Think about it.

Mat 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
