Will Christians Get the Mark?
A question that I've heard rather frequently the past few weeks has to do with Christians and the Mark of the Beast. "Will Christians get this Mark? Could Christians take the Mark on accident or out of ignorance and still be saved?"
First, listen to the video below to see what a disastrously wrong answer sounds like:
Blatantly unbiblical teaching.
The book of Revelation makes it clear that the Mark people will need to take in order to buy and sell will be associated with worship of this Beast, the AntiChrist. People who take this Mark will forfeit the free gift of eternal life in Heaven.
The Mark of the Beast is first mentioned in Revelation 13:16-17 where the Bible reads, "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: 17 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."
Earlier in chapter 13 there are several mentions of the Beast and that the unsaved world will worship him such as in verse 4. So we see that worship of the Beast precedes the giving of the Mark. This Mark is mentioned a few more times in Revelation and in almost every case we see worship along side it. Here's a couple examples:
Revelation 14:11 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.
Revelation 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.
So will sincere Christians who genuinely worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ suddenly turn and worship the Beast and his image? No. True Christians will follow God alone.
This should also answer a common question about the current COVID vaccine. Is "the jab" the Mark of the Beast? No, but I do believe it is a stepping stone towards that. The global population is being conditioned to accept such draconian measures so when the Mark does come, it will be easily accepted by the gullible and deceived masses.
