MORNINGTIME 3583 

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 (Believers) that keep the Commandments of God, and the Faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them. Revelation 14:9-13. These verses start with a warning to not take the Mark, and end with a warning to not take the Mark, and sandwiched in between are the serious consequences of taking the Mark. This is serious Stuff. Nowhere do we read that talking the Mark is a "forgivable" offense. It's like a line drawn in the sand by the Lord, "Don't cross this line or you're a dead man". These verses admonish Christians to "hang tough", don't take the Mark, Pay the Price of losing your physical life, only to gain Life Eternal, and keep on keepin' on. I don't say this lightly, there will be a Price to Pay just to be a Christian. AND ALL WHO LOVE CHRIST WILL GLADLY PAY IT, AND NEVER LOOK BACK. In these coming days, Christ WILL be your Everything, or He'll be nothing. The separation of "For" and "Against" Christ will become wider and clearer for ALL to see. The days of worrying about "offending" someone when sharing Christ are fast falling away. Study to shew thyself Approved of the Lord in these worsening days of man's disapproved of those who belong to Christ. Obey Christ, and, Be Blessed.
