Revelation 14:11-13 KJV “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.  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.”
There’s some tough times ahead brothers and sisters. Yes, things on earth will get worse than they already are. And here is where the patient endurance of God’s saints comes in. God’s true servants will keep their faith in The Lord and keep God’s commandments til the end. But it will become harder and harder to do so. There are great woes coming, the likes that mankind has never seen. And many deceptions that could sway even the brightest saint if not for God’s protection through Jesus:
Matthew 24:24 KJV “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
Jude 1:24-25 KJV “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,  To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.”
Soon people will be scrambling to receive the mark of the beast, but we will say, “NO!” That’s what we will do. Those who say, “Yes,” to the beast, and worship his image, and take the mark of his name never belonged to Christ in the first place. Their names are not written in The Lambs Book Of Life:
Revelation 13:8 KJV “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
1 John 2:19 NET “They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us, because if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us. But they went out from us to demonstrate that all of them do not belong to us.”
Matthew 24:10 NIV “At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other,”
This defection or apostasy is going on right now. But it will certainly be in effect when people can not buy (food and goods) or sell (conduct business); when they are economically screwed unless they worship the beast, and his image, and receive the mark of his name.
Revelation 13:16 “He also caused everyone (small and great, rich and poor, free and slave) to obtain a mark on their right hand or on their forehead. 13:17 Thus no one was allowed to buy or sell things unless he bore the mark of the beast – that is, his name or his number. 13:18 This calls for wisdom: Let the one who has insight calculate the beast’s number, for it is man’s number, and his number is 666.”
So you see the vast majority; “EVERYONE,” the scripture says, including many who claim to be Christians will openly turn their backs on God and worship the beast because they want to be able to buy and sell things. They want to live. But as Jesus says:
Luke 17:33 KJV “Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.”
Revelation 14:11 KJV “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.”
Those who worship the beast and receive his mark will suffer ETERNAL TORMENT in the lake of fire. They have no rest day or night. They can’t even take a nap so as to forget their pain momentarily. Those who refuse to worship the beast and choose to worship God alone, even if it means the loss of everything including their lives, have ETERNAL LIFE!
Revelation 14:9-10 KJV “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”
Matthew 19:29 KJV “And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit EVERLASTING LIFE!”
The choices are clear. And every individual’s stance will be made even more clear as these last days wind down to this satanic mark of the beast. Repentance is impossible for those who take the mark. They are ETERNALLY DAMNED! This is so serious!!!! What will we do? Let us pray that we all will be able to survive all these things.
Luke 21:36 KJV “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”
