Blinded by the Darkness
The Lord is/has been lifting the blinding in part to the Pre-Tribulation Rapture teaching so the Body of Christ can begin to discern God’s true purpose and plan for the Latter Days and the Great Consummation. Those who believe in a quick escape from God’s intended plans for the second half of Christ’s Covenant will find no escape in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture’s false doctrine. The only real escape for Christians will be to embrace Christ and His truth as found in God’s Word and “This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse,” trusting the Lord during the soon coming Great Consummation. Believers need to prepare for the Tribulation Period, for it is coming!
There are Christians who mistakenly believe in the Great Tribulation doctrine believing they will not go through the Tribulation Period which they believe is the Great Tribulation; the truth however, is that the biblical concept for the Great Tribulation does not nor ever has existed; leastwise, not as presented in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture doctrine. There is however a Tribulation Period which is an element of the Great Consummation teaching and part of Christ’s second half of the Covenant (The Days of Vengeance of our God. Isaiah 61:1-2).
It is for this reason these Believers neither avoid nor fear receiving the Mark of the Beast, which was imminent but now exists; leastwise, technologically.
Many such Christians mistakenly believe the Mark of the Beast will not be instituted while they yet live and are here on earth. Big mistake!
I realize “The Mark” could seem like commonplace tech for today or even an impossible to perceive mythical threat to others and therefore it might cause some believers to embraced the technology without truly fearing The Mark’s danger. Unfortunately, because of these misconceptions too many Christians may follow this unfortunate lead and therefore receive The Mark believing the actual Mark cannot be issued until Christians have been whisked away to meet the Lord during the Rapture.
In the deceptive security of this false doctrine too many Christians believe they are safe from the Mark and all its consequences. Their error will tragically be compounded as they encourage family and friends to receive the new technology and the tech’s social changes. Yet another big mistake.
Families and friends will in turn convince yet other family members and friends and so the tragedy continues on, ad nauseam.
The result, too many Christians will likely and foolishly take the Mark of the Beast believing their friends, or their sister, or mother, or father, or brother in Christ is safe to take The Mark as well. How many will be damned for one Believer’s lack of knowledge? Such is the purpose for the book, “This Side of the Whirlwind.”
Potentially millions of Christians could receive the Mark of the Beast simply because they believed one fundamental yet heinous lie.
Sincerely mistaken believers will still suffer the full measure of God’s wrath for receiving the infamous Mark of the Beast.
It does not matter that these former Believers were taught a false doctrine because God’s Word is immutable, unchanging and set. WE are required to know God’s Word (2 Timothy 2:15; Hosea 4:6).
The damage will be done, for the message was written (Revelation 14:9-11) very clearly thousands of year ago and everyone today should know better; after all, think of the books, plays, movies and God’s Word. Remember, today, everyone has the Word available with few exceptions. We merely had to study for ourselves and most have not.
Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge …”
2 Timothy 2:15, “Study to show yourself approved …”
Well, what’s your thoughts?
What do you believe?
Does God telling the world “NO” mean anything?
It does to me!~
As for me and my house… We will serve the Lord!
We will overcome the Beast, the Mark and this world by the word of our testimonies and the blood of the Lamb. We will love the Lord more than we love our own lives.
By God’s grace, Lord, make it so!
