“And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
NOTE: Some Pastors are saying you can be saved even if you take the mark of the beast, but that is clearly wrong, according to scripture. If you do take the mark of the beast, then you will lose any chance of eternal salvation and you will spend the rest of eternity in torment (Revelation 13:17; Revelation 14:11).
Why go through all this as an unbeliever?
After the rapture of the church (1 Thess 4:13-18), there will be a 7 year period of time (The time of Jacob’s Trouble, Daniel’s 70th week, the 7 year tribulation) that the Holy Bible describes as the worst ever on earth. Dear brethren: we are so very near the end of the Age of Grace: TIME IS SHORT!!
Being left behind does not mean you cannot still be saved: YOU CAN, if you are still alive and do NOT take the mark of the beast. However, you will probably die for your faith.
That is why it’s vitally important that you do not put off being born again in Jesus Christ — not even for one more minute.
Jesus died for your sins so that you can have everlasting life and be completely reconciled with our Creator. This is because in the Holy Bible, it is written that the wages of sin is death, and we are sinners, no matter how good we think we are. We have the sin nature within us due to original sin by Adam and Eve. Since then, we have been completely unreconciled to God because He is Pure and Holy and Sinless.
The blood of Jesus Christ atoned for our sins and through His death on the cross, Jesus paid the penalty for our sins. He took on our sin and He imputed His righteousness onto us, so that we are — in the sight of God — righteous. However, it is not our own righteousness, but the imputed righteousness of Jesus that God sees! No-one goes to the Father, but through Jesus!!
Jesus is our redeemer and righteous cover!
Before Jesus Christ became the sacrifice for our sins, spotless, innocent animals were sacrificed to take the penalty (death) for our sin, but it was wholly insufficient and that is why there were so many sacrifices. The one-time only sacrifice by Holy, Pure, and Sinless Jesus Christ, the only Begotten Son of God and Son of Man (the second Adam) is completely sufficient to atone for the sins of the entire world — all past, present, and future sins! He is our Passover Lamb. But in order to be covered by the blood of the Lamb — Jesus Christ — you must
A, B, & C:
1. Acknowledge that you are a sinner and in need of a Savior. Pray to the Father, in the precious name of Jesus Christ for forgiveness of your sins. Repent of your sins.
2. Believe in your heart that Jesus died for your sins so that you may have everlasting life and be completely reconciled with the Father. Release your life to the Will of God.
3. Confess with your mouth that Jesus is your Savior and share the Gospel or Good News of Jesus with lost souls that you come into contact with. All people who are unbelievers are lost souls and on the road to eternal damnation. The great commission given to us by Jesus is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
God Bless Each And Every One Of You!
