The Sign of God
The Counterfeit Mark of the Beast
The Spiritual Aspects
By Jim Searcy
Everything should be PROVED by the more sure word of the KJV Holy Bible. At least, everything should be confirmed in the mouth of two or more witnesses, if it in any way relates to the eternal destiny of our souls. This message may offend many. However, it is time where we must walk soberly and circumspectly, overcoming ignorance and denial, especially in regard to some aspects of the Mark of the Beast. The times of this ignorance God winked at; but NOW commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. Acts 17:30-31. It is a matter of duty to give this truth whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear. Then it may be PROVED by the more sure word, received, rejected, or tuned out. However, if it is not tested, the continued ignorance will be WILLFUL ignorance regarding certain aspects of the Mark of the Beast.
The Holy Spirit should be saying many of the same things to you as He says to me. Another good confirming witness on this subject would be an elder by the name of David Loughran. There are perhaps a score of articles on the GJiGT which touch upon the subject of the Antichrist system, and the Mark of the Beast.
In the book of Revelation, in chapters 13 and 14, we find prophecies concerning the Antichrist, the end-time dictator who will for a very short time rule the whole world. This Satanic world dictator is called the Beast, the Man of Sin, the Man Lawlessness, the Son of Perdition, the Little Horn, and The Antichrist. For those who for whatever reason do not know the Identity of The Antichrist here are the links that will quickly give you that information:
Those three links with the associated links should convince most who really do believe the scriptures.
The Lord revealed to me the identity of the man in 1993 and it was a full two years before I found any other brethren who also knew. When the Antichrist finally takes center stage as the world dictator, he will order every soul on earth to receive his mark. It is his identifying sign or signature. It will be received to be put IN the forehead, or IN the right hand, of everyone who is going to be allowed to buy or sell. No one will be able to buy and sell without receiving the Mark of the Beast. There will be economic sanctions on a scale the world has never known. The absolute and total economic sanction to prevent buying or selling will be applied to EVERYONE who refuses to receive the Mark of the Beast. Obviously, very few will be able to endure this total economic sanction to eliminate the possibility that they could buy or sell. It is a test that God will allow, and that very FEW will pass.
In that same prophecy God warns EVERYONE that anyone who RECEIVES the Mark of the Beast will get the fullness of the WRATH of God poured out on them FOREVER, in the eternal lake of fire created for the devil and his demon angels.
Rev 14:7-12 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. 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 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: 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. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
Yes, it is a terrifying prophecy. However, NO ONE can avoid it. The terrifying prophecy certainly can NOT be avoided by embracing the strong delusion of pre-trib lala land. Like it or not, this is a prophecy which you MUST NOW UNDERSTAND, for the time is at hand. You must NOW understand this prophecy if you want to have much hope of avoiding the wrath of Almighty God, which we all deserve, and will get, if we RECEIVE the Mark of the Beast. Denial and believing a lie, and strong delusion, is NOT a way to escape.
Some have said the Mark of the Beast is a coded tattoo, not seen but only readable by high-tech equipment. Others have said it is a cashless society using a National or Global ID card, like a credit or debit card is used today. Personally, after forty years of study of the whole 666 technology from its beginning, it would seem most likely to be the implantable biochip, like digital angel, or verichip. There are many possibilities on the physical aspect of the actual hardware of the Mark of the Beast. You can get a good summary of the hardware of the 666 Mark of the Beast quickly on the GJiGT Reality Check. Here is that direct link - http://www.dccsa.com/greatjoy/reality.html
However, for now we want to look at some spiritual aspects of the Mark of the Beast which NOW, I feel compelled to give to those on the GJiGT list, even if everyone on the list is offended and separates themselves in their offence, rejection, and denial.
In actual fact, the Bible does not explicitly say what the Mark of the Beast is. However, we most certainly are given very important information and clues about the Mark of the Beast. Still, the Mark itself, according to the Scriptures, is not explicit in terms of its hardware configuration. Nevertheless, especially NOW, the prophecy concerning the Mark of the Beast deserves careful consideration. Why? Because the effect of EVERY vision and prophecy is NOW at hand. The revelation and implementation of the Mark of the Beast has such AWESOME and eternal results of destiny that only fools will continue to ignore it. Regardless of the possible offense, the man of God is compelled to CRY ALOUD the warning which every man and woman in this world MUST NOW have opportunity to seriously consider. The effects of the Mark of the Beast deal with a degree of punishment more severe than anyone can possibly imagine or explicitly describe.
In this look at the Mark of the Beast we will only take a quick logical assessment of the Scriptures alone; and then adopt the only conclusion the facts allow. To venture beyond this into fantasy, as seen in many films and books on the subject, is self-deluding and dangerous.
Rev13:16-17 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.
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 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:
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.
Rev.16:2: 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.
Yes, this is an awesome true and very real threat, which is NOW coming upon us. It is perhaps the most terrifying threat in all Scripture. It is in our time that the seals have come off of the book of Daniel. Therefore, it is in our time that the Mark of the Beast has come to have unparalleled importance to every soul now living on this planet. How could anyone choose to ignore this? Simply because of the choice of fear, denial, and deceptions, rather than faith, reality, and truth, to set us free and overcome the fear.
How could God allow us to not be told more explicitly about this Mark of the Beast? It seems that we are not told in plain language what the Mark of the Beast is. Why did God not tell us what the Mark of Beast is? To that I would say, regarding the following spiritual aspects of the Mark of the Beast, He most certainly did tell us. How can people continue to choose to deny what the more sure word of God says on the subject, choosing denial, and willingly ignorance of something so vital to the eternal destiny of oneís soul? The answer is the strong delusions and departures from sound doctrine which so obviously mark these last days of the great falling away from THE Faith.
You may want to stop reading this now. Because I am duty bound to put forward some things, which when such truth is known, with willful intent not to act upon such truth, will have serious consequences. Truly what will follow falls into the category of which the Apostle Peter did speak in 2 Pet 2:21 - For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
The Sign of God & Mark of the Beast message should have prayerful consideration. The Sign of God & Mark of the Beast message in an audio file has been made available to hear on the GJiGT-Radio. This is something which should have careful study for confirmation in the more sure word of the KJV Holy Bible. The audio file of the entire audio message regarding this important spiritual aspect of the Mark of the Beast is still available on the GJiGT-Radio. http://www.dccsa.com/greatjoy/GJiGT-Radio.htm

The Lord has given us information concerning the Mark of the Beast, if we will have ears to hear. Regarding the spiritual aspects, the scriptures we have been given, should certainly lead us to right understanding of this important and fearful prophecy. The prophecy of the Mark of the Beast is most certainly NOT going to be avoided or properly dealt with by the escapism of the non scriptural pre-trib rapture doctrines of the strong delusions that are part and parcel of dispensational theology.
In regard to the spiritual aspect, the Mark of the Beast COUNTERFEITS the Sign between God and His people. Yet, sadly it is really too simple for the majority to believe. However, there is no good reason for any believer to be in darkness regarding the spiritual counterfeit of the Sign or seal of God with His people. It can quite easily be confirmed, as all important spiritual things should be, by the more sure word of God in the KJV Holy Bible.
The Mark is described in Rev 14:11 as The Mark of his name. Yet, we are not told exactly what Beast's name is, other than the exact number of his name being 666. His name adds up to 666 by the gematria in the bible languages and even in English when the gematria is applied. In any onamastics book, books dealing with the meaning and derivation of names, one will find that name Charles means Man. However, that is more related to the physical aspects than the spiritual aspects. For that aspect of the Name of the Man, and the number of his name, you may see that in fullness at this link:
From Rev 14:11 it is obvious that the Mark of the Beast, in some way, is related to his name. And that, all by itself, is sufficient as we look at the simple spiritual aspects of the Beastís counterfeit mark. Much more important is Rev 13:16 where we are told that that the mark of the beast is to be placed IN the forehead or right hand of those who RECEIVE the Mark of the Beast.
There is something about all bible prophecy in the more sure word of the KJV Holy Bible that we are supposed to KNOW first. 2 Peter 1:20-21 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
The perfection of KJV Holy Bible prophecy is a gift from God. Holy men of old were inspired by the Holy Spirit. They were moved by the Holy Ghost, who is the one watching over and superintending Bible prophecy in that God promised preserved and purified seven times by the Holy Ghost, King Jesus Version, KJV Holy Bible. The understanding of Bible prophecy is also a gift of God by the Holy Spirit. We must be given the understanding just as the prophets of old were given the prophecy. Without the Holy Spirit it is simply is not possible to correctly understand, or even really believe the prophecies of the Holy Bible. If we have difficulty in understanding a bible prophecy it is NOT an indication of a need for an alternate rendering. Here is the way we get understanding - Prov 1:23 - Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
Direct revelation, which few of us receive, or revelation from the Holy Bible, comes only if the Holy Spirit opens our minds to understand. In this time now, we must look to the KJV Holy Bible to interpret itself. None of us compare with the prophets of old who had direct revelation. Still there are many false prophets who would like to deceive us to believe that they have greater and deeper revelation than what is contained in the KJV Holy Bible. There are even false prophets who want us to remove words and verses. Some are so presumptuous as to even suggest that we should remove whole books of the KJV Holy Bible. A few in these last days of strong delusion would even suggest removing all the books of the Apostle Paul. In these last days of great apostasy there is even a growing number of apostates who would suggest removing the whole New Testament. There should not be any doubt regarding someone being a false prophet if they would want you to remove or doubt any of what is contained in that God promised perfect Holy Bible.
For understanding of the Mark of the Beast, at least in regard to broad simple spiritual aspects, we should compare Scripture with Scripture. Doing this we find that God also places His Name, His Seal in the foreheads of those who follow Him.
Ezek 9:4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.
Rev 7:2-4 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
Rev.14:1: And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.
Who would not see the similarity in how the name and seal of God is related to the counterfeit Mark of the Beast? There will be just two groups of people on earth. A very large group with the counterfeit Mark of the Beast and a faithful remnant FEW who will have the TRUE mark and seal of God upon them. In those verses in Rev 7 & 14 we see this faithful remnant FEW who receive Godís name or seal in their foreheads. We also see the VAST MAJORITY in Revelation 13:16 both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to RECEIVE the mark of the beast in their right hand, or in their foreheads.
Yes, the Mark of the Beast and the Seal of God are both seals in the foreheads of the people who receive them. I hope you see that the Beast, just like Satan, the great counterfeiter, always tries to do as with the Mark of the Beast, a counterfeit thing of what God does. The Beast is trying to counterfeit God, by putting his mark, his name, his image, or his number, in people's foreheads. Satan is not creative, but Satan is wisest of counterfeiters. He is wise enough to know the perfection of everything God does, and that the best Satan can do is counterfeit the things of God. The Holy Spirit is never threatened by the test of the spirits but commands us to test the spirits. If you are not using the KJV Holy Bible you have been robbed of the simplest and most powerful test of the spirits.
1 John 4:1-3 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ IS come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ IS come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. See if your bible says IS come Ė meaning the I AM, that Jesus Christ is the eternal Creator and Redeemer, whose goings forth have been from of old from everlasting. OR DOES IT SAY HAS COME just like every other human has come in the flesh? Beware of spiritual counterfeits which are substitutes of the true and real. The Mark of the Beast is a counterfeit of Godís name, seal, sign or signature. Therefore anything the KJV Holy Bible has to say about the Sign or Seal of God can give great insight into this important mystery of the Mark of the Beast.
A good dictionary will show the words sign, seal, signature, mark, and name are all synonyms, meaning generally the same thing. The seal of God is very much the same as His sign, or His name, or His seal, or His signature. Even our signature is made when we sign our name on the dotted line. We give our seal to something when we sign on the dotted line. So what is THE SIGN of God, which would also be the seal of God, or the signature of God? Godís seal upon His people is obviously not some sort of visible mark upon our bodies. Part of the reason body piercing and tattoos are so popular in this antichrist world today, is because in Lev 19:28, God expressly forbids doing this. Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD. Obviously then, the seal of God would not be some sort of literal marking of our foreheads.
So then, what is THE Sign, or the seal of God, the sign between God and His people? I encourage you to pray now to be able to receive the truth by the Spirit of Truth quickening the word of truth. I also recommend you be sitting down, because this is going to be quite a great shock to some people to hear from the Word of God what THE Sign between God and His people really is. If it is a sign or a seal it will of NECESSITY be manifested in an observable way even though it is NOT anything like a tattoo or some writing upon the forehead. THE SIGN of God is OBSERVABLE. Yes, LOVE is such a sign, and THE Sign is observable as love is observable. Tongues speaking is observable but that certainly is NOT THE SIGN or the seal of God although there are many who have been deceived to think that is it. Doing miracles is observable, casting out devils is observable, but none of those observable manifestations is THE SIGN or the seal between God and His people.
Such signs as love, tongues, miracles, the casting out of devils are NOT the SIGN between God and His people. In fact many pagan and demonic religion cultures have such signs. THE SIGN of God observable on His people is different from all of those because the SIGN or SEAL of God is unique and peculiar to the people of the God of Israel, the I AM, the one writing the Ten Commandments in stone for Moses, Yeshua, The Lord Jesus Christ . Here is THE SIGN or the seal of God from the more sure Word of God:
Exodus 31:13: Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily My sabbathS ye shall keep: for it is a SIGN between Me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I AM the LORD that doth sanctify you.
Ezekiel 20:12: Moreover also I gave them My sabbathS, to be a SIGN between me and them, that they might know that I AM the LORD that sanctify them.
Ezekiel 20:20: And hallow My sabbathS; and they shall be a SIGN between Me and you, that ye may know that I AM the LORD your God.
Are you shocked? There it is Ė THUS SAITH THE LORD Ė God said EXPLICITLY that THE SIGN between Him and His people is His peopleís observance of His SabbathS.
The SabbathS in Godís Royal Law, written by the finger of Jesus in stone for Moses, are His signature, the only identifying SIGN He places on His people, to show to all heaven and earth that they are His people, and that He has set them apart, that He sanctifies them.
Isaiah also proclaims this truth in Isa 8:16 - Bind up the testimony, SEAL the law among my disciples. God seals His people with obedience. It is just what Jesus said, If you love me keep MY commandments, not the popeís, and not the antichristís. Keeping Godís commandments is NOT legalism, it is OBEDIENCE. Keeping the traditions of men that make the word of God of none effect is LEGALISM.
Hebrews 8:10: For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put MY LAWS into their MIND, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
Deut. 6:8: And thou shalt bind them for a SIGN upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
Exodus 13:9: And it (the Feast of Unleavened Bread) shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD's law may be in thy mouth.
Deu 11:18 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a SIGN upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets BETWEEN YOUR EYES.
Deu 28:46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.
Exo 31:17 It is a SIGN between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.
Ezek 20:12 Moreover also I gave them My SabbathS, to be a SIGN between Me and them, that they might know that I AM the LORD that SANCTIFY them.
It is mind boggling how so many who claim to be BELIEVERS stumble over this. Godís SEAL is His Law, and His SIGN or signature that His people belong to Him is the SabbathS in His law. I do hope you can receive this, for it is far more important than most have ever imagined. Under the New Covenant of God with His people. these things are NOT done away, but rather they are supposed to be written by the Holy Spirit in our hearts and minds. Godís Sabbath days establish His SIGN, His Signature of ownership of His people. His SIGN or His signature represents Him, and like Him, is NOT CHANGEABLE. Godís SabbathS are not subject to change and can NOT be done away or replaced with something else no matter how many Christian terms one may apply. Godís SabbathS are IMMUTABLE and not even the pope or the antichrist can change them.
Notice the word is SabbathS, Yes, it is that way on purpose to draw your attention to the Lordís weekly Sabbath on the Seventh day commonly called Saturday every week. AND the Sabbaths that are part of the Feasts of the Lord. You can find them all listed in just one chapter in Leviticus 23. There are 3 in the Spring associated with Passover or Unleavened bread, then the Feast of Shavout or Pentecost in the Summer, and The Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles in the Fall. These Sabbath days are the made holy memorials of the work of The Lord Jesus Christ and His great work of Redemption, wherein God was in Christ Jesus reconciling the world unto Himself. The Seven Feasts of the Lord celebrate the Plan of Salvation, they celebrate THE Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Sabbath every seventh day of the week is the weekly memorial of the Creation Work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Biblical SabbathS represent Godís SIGN, seal and signature of ownership between God and His people and should be written in the minds and hearts of His people. Jesus said by this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love toward one another, AND if you LOVE ME KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS. This should help you understand that the SabbathS of the Lord should be accepted, remembered, and OBSERVED for all time by Godís people who have found His grace by repentance and FAITH IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, Yeshua THE Messiah.

God is going to SEAL His people with the SIGN of OBEDIENCE, and holiness. Why are these Sabbath days so important NOW? They are important because they are what people of THE FAITH will DO as the expression of faith in the character, the new covenant, and the sanctifying power of God in Messiah. According to the word of God there is NO other SIGN, no other Seal, no other mark of identification between God and His people. SHOCKING? Yes, but the pope has stepped into the place of God and the protestants for some strange reason never protested. God may have winked in this ignorance in the past, but NOW commandeth ALL men EVERYWHERE to repent. I do pray you can begin to understand how awesome and vital is the spiritual significance of the Lordís SabbathS in His law. Jesus wrote His Royal Law of Love, Life, and Liberty, with His finger in stone no matter what pope or any other poohbah says otherwise, it remains IMMUTABLE or unchangable. Yeshua said IF you love Me KEEP My commandments.
The explicit expression of the New Covenant or New Testament is found in Hebrews 10:16 - This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them.
Yes, the Eternal's unchanging signature is the seventh day Sabbath commonly called Saturday, and the seven annual Sabbaths in the Lordís calendar of His feasts. When saints replace or change these SabbathS of the Lord from their worship they can not help but lose the ONLY identifying sign that distinguishes the people of the Lord from the rest of humanity. One is always amazed with the profound simple truth of this reality the more that one will study and consider what this truth of the Word of God implies. The Mark of the Beast is part of Satanís counterfeit of what the Lordís SabbathS imply.
The Beast of Revelation 13 or the Little Horn of Daniel 7 are one and the same. The antichrist comes from behind the curtain to take center stage control of the world in the final 42 months BEFORE the resurrection, the rapture, and the return of the Lord on the Last Day at the Last Trump. The antichrist blasphemes God and persecutes the people of God. The maximum length of the antichrist reign of terror is three and a half years before the antichrist and his false prophet pope are cast into the lake of fire at the glorious return of the Lord.
Often we find the Apostle Paul describing the Antichrist as the man of LAWLESSNESS, the Man of Sin, the Son of Perdition, and the leader of the grand finale of the mystery of iniquity. What is sin? What is iniquity? Sin is the transgression of the Law. Sin is breaking one or more of God's commandments. Sin is an expression of Satan's character. The advanced stage of the demonic working of Satan in anyone is self-deluding enmity and rejection of the Law of God. Sin is the transgression of the law, the Royal Law of God.
The Antichrist hates Godís law and this explains the otherwise insane proclamations that the god of Islam is the same as God of the Bible, or that telling the truths about the homosexual lifestyle is a hate crime punishable with hard time. It explains such insanity as UN Peace Keeping FORCES? Or why people must surrender their freedoms to keep them? The very term Man of Sin implies a Satanic hatred of Godís Royal Law of Love, Life, and Liberty. The Antichrist absolutely hates Godís Law and Godís Word. That is why when you find the worldís greatest promoter of Islam you will find the Antichrist and his false prophet pope. Tolerating Satanís largest religion of bondage to the moon god is antichrist. The people of God according to Jesus Christ are - are suto To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. The main job of the Antichrist is to lead others into breaking the Royal Law of God. He is THE Man of Sin.
Dan 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. Do you see that the Antichrist will CHANGE TIMES and LAWS? One of the key expressions of the Beastís hatred is seen in how the Antichrist changes the commandment of God dealing with the holy convocations or the Lordís appointed times. Yes, commandment number 4, the one that starts with REMEMBER, giving the Authority, Juristdiction, and Seal of God, is the only one dealing with TIMES.
The only laws in the Word of God which deal with the element of TIME the Sabbath laws of the Lord of Sabbath. These laws are directy linked with the Feasts of the Lord in Godís calendar.
The Antichrist, the Man of Sin, the the Beast will think to somehow change the SabbathS of the Lord, and replace them with his counterfeit SabbathS! That is exactly what the false prophet of the antichrist has not only thought to do but for the most part has done. However, there will be more to this changing of times and certainly grave penalties applied for not observing the antichrist times. The fales prophet pope of the Antichrist has, for the most part, already done away with the Lordís Sabbaths and made popular celebrations, that with or without Christian terms being applied, remain historically pagan, occult, and antichrist. The pope changed TIMES given in the word and Law of God. Many did not notice but in the year 2000 calendars began being printed with Monday rather than Sunday being the first day of the week. It is now difficult to find a calendar in Europe where Sunday is on the extreme left for the first day of the week and Saturday is on the extreme right for the seventh day of the week Sabbath. The Antichrist has replaced the SIGN of God with His people with one of the evident marks of the Beast.
The Lordís true weekly Sabbath of Saturday, and the seven annual Feasts of the Lord on Godís calendar, is THE SIGN of God between Him and His people. There is NO biblically based argument that can say otherwise. The historically pagan festivals which is the Antichrist counterfeit of the SabbathS of the Lord is a part of most peopleís life and is SIN by definition, which most will turn into iniquity by their unwillingness to receive and acknowledge the truth of this particular part of the Mark of the Beast replacing the SIGN between the Lord and His people. The truth is that Christmas and Easter a historically pagan feasts with or without Christian terms. Anyone can read about the Christmas tree in the bible in Jeremiah chapter 10.
The popular holidays with or without Christian terms applied to them are certainly not sanctified or pleasing to the Lord. There is absolutely NO foundation to justify these historically pagan and occult celebrations in the entire Word of God. The pagans and demon religions celebrated them many centuries before the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. It was three or four centuries after the death, burial, resurrection, and ascension of The Messiah before these pagan celebrations were put on Christian calendars. Regardless of the good will and Christian terms applied, these celebrations effectively are the same old festivals of the heathen and pagans which God hates. They remain festivals of fertility, sexual license and demon worship, and are Satanís antichrist counterfeit of the Lordís Feasts.
It is good to see there is a rapidly growing faithful remnant that has exposed and turned away from this subversion of THE SIGN between the Lord and His people. The GJiGT is aware of small remnant groups in 105 countries where people are becoming increasingly aware that the festivals of Churchdumb are pagan festivals in disguise. It really is common knowledge that these festivals are inherently pagan, that they existed long before the Christian era. But what is NOT generally known is that they represent the Man of Sinís or Antichrist effort to CHANGE TIMES and by definition lead into sin and iniquity by changing the Lordís SabbathS, and are a clear part of the Mark of the Beast.
NOW the time has arrived when it has become obvious that there can be no room in the church for bunny rabbits, Easter eggs, mistletoe and Christmas trees. These heathen symbols and the festival observances within the body of Christ must be discontinued by all true believers who wish to please The LORD. Why? Because once they are recognized for what they are, continued use of them means a WILLFUL rejection of the command of God, and a WILLFUL rejection of THE SIGN between God and His people, and a WILLFUL REJECTION of the SEAL of God in their forehead.
The choice is yours. But the duty of delivering the truth has been done. If this is new to you, check it out in the more sure Word of the KJV Holy Bible. You have an obligation to prove, receive, or reject the truth. However, to do nothing regarding the truth is WILLING IGNORANCE. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent. All will very soon be forced to make the choice between the SIGN and Seal of God and the Mark of the Beast. There is more information on the hardware and other physical aspects of the Mark of the Beast in the REALITY CHECK section of the GJiGT. The Antichrist was the very first to receive the biochip implant and his two sons number were number two and three to receive the implant biochip Mark of the Beast.
How you receive this message about the The LORDís SabbathS and its relation to the Mark of the Beast is a strong indication of what you will do when no one will be able to buy and sell without the 666 Mark of the Beast. Sooner or later all will be forced to choose. I say choose ye this day whom ye will serve. Yes, everyone will have to make the choice because the Rapture is not until IMMEDIATELY AFTER the great tribulation of the antichrist war on the saints. So the time will come when you MUST choose between The LORDís Sign and Seal and the Beast's mark. Who will you ultimately choose to serve? Only you know. I simply say the sooner you make the choice the better it will be because blessings follow obedience and curses follow disobedience. We are not talking legalism here we are talking OBEDIENCE with in many respects is the same as GENUINE FAITH. However it remains a question that only you can answer.
Before being given this truth perhaps you never gave much serious depth of study or serious consideration about The Lordís SabbathS and how it does relate to the Mark of the Beast. There certainly was a time in my life where I was in ignorance regarding it. God had great mercy and did allow for my ignorance and rationalizations before coming to receive and acknowledging the truth. However there is NO time or grace of which I am aware for WILLFUL IGNORANCE. NOW you know. You can not ever again plead simple ignorance if you make the wrong choice one could only plead willful ignorance or that one believed the local liar for hire rather than going to the more sure Word of God and proving the truth. There is not one verse of scripture that can justify Sunday SabbathS or the pagan festivals which have been allowed to come into the churches. The Roman Catholics love to boast about how this fact proves the power of the pope over the truth of the Word of God. However, from now on you can not say you did not know.
This is not the full counsel of the more sure Word of God on the Mark of the Beast. There are other aspects of the Mark of the Beast and the whole unholy trinity of Satan, the Antichrist and his false prophet pope disclosed in as much detail as most anyone would require on scores of GJiGT articles permanently on the web site. You should carefully and prayerfully the conditions and consequences of the choice all will sooner or later be forced to make. Sooner is better on this one for certain, because the time is short. The spirit of Antichrist has already deceived MILLIONS with false doctrines, false security, strong delusions, and deceptions. It is safe to say the majority of those who would claim to be Christians today think Godís Law, His EVERLASTING Covenant, is obsolete. All should beware of that subtle deception and strong delusion of the Man of Sin, the man of LAWLESSNESS.
The GJiGT identified the person of the Antichrist in 1993. When the Antichrist steps out of his very clever obscure disguise as some sort of a brainless powerless no count perception to be global dictator, people will be compelled to receive his mark. If you refuse it, you will not be allowed to buy and sell anywhere on earth. If you RECEIVE the Mark of the Beast, of which the National ID is only a VERY small step removed, you will drink of the wine of the wrath of God. This is why it is NOW so important that you really understand the connection of the Mark of the Beast with the SEAL of God and THE SIGN between God and His people.
Of course the big question everyone probably has is - Will the Lord protect His people when they can no longer buy and sell? For those who have the sign and seal of God the answer is YES, most definitely. God is very well able to miraculously protect His people when they are expelled from all human communities as NOT AUTHENTICALLY human people of the book. Yes, the Lord does have a plan to take care of His people. No wilderness on earth is more wilderness than the Sinai desert. God has already demonstrated that He could take care of His people in the wilderness of Sinai. In that most extreme desert God fed His people for 40 years. It is part of the fear which came upon all nations that Israel came out of that wilderness after having stayed in such impossible wilderness for forty years.
ABSOLUTELY God can care for His people for less than four years, which may turn out to be only 45 days. FIRST GET THIS SETTLED the guillotines of the Antichrist will NOT hurt you because Jesus said, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? John 11:26
Yes, the Lord does have a plan to protect and provide His people. I am privileged to know that you NOW KNOW How the Lord will identify His people. Yes, for certain some will be die as martyrs for the Lord Jesus Christ, some will be imprisoned. But the whole body of Messiah will certainly not be wiped out any more than it will be raptured until AFTER THE TRIBULATION because God Said So. There are so many scriptures which say God will protect His people. Will you make the right choice TODAY to have the SIGN by which the Lord recognizes His people? Will you make the choice TODAY necessary to have the Seal of God in your forehead.
Put your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and Do What He said. If you love Me KEEP My Commandments.
