|Those who take the Mark of the Beast will worship|
the Beast's image, and will perish forever!
LET ME EXPLAIN WHY: According to Scripture, the Temple of God is within believers, WHO ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD, and this temple of believers makes up the BODY OF CHRIST. Since this is TRUE according to John 2:19-21, 1 Corinthians 3:17, 1 Corinthians 12:27, and 2 Corinthians 6:15-16, then the man of sin or Antichrist sitting in the Temple of God and claiming that he is god in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 can be seen as a present reality, as well as an allegory pointing to the following analogy:
The Temple of God that the Antichrist will sit in (or on, like the Woman or Church who rides the Beast) can represent a group of supposed Christians who are heretics, but who claim to be born-again believers. True believers can easily identify these heretics because they deny that Yahshua came in the flesh, and they also deny that He will literally return in the flesh. In denying His coming, they also deny that Yahshua is the Son of God who came to wash away our sins with His perfect blood. Those who deny this are little antichrists according to 1 John 2:22 and 1 John 4:2-3. These antichrists also deny the reality of sin, and can therefore be seen as the apostate or Laodicean Church full heretics that believe they are blessed little gods themselves, and do not need a savior.
As deniers of sin, these antichrists will accept many things that are considered sinful by God, and the wicked will redefine these sins as good. As can already be seen in this wicked world today - especially in the once Christian Western nations that are now all apostate - sins related to sexual immorality such as having sex outside of marriage, homosexuality, cross-dressing, and abortion or the murder of the unborn or prematurely born by artificial means are all considered normal and acceptable forms of behavior that should be protected by law.
In fact, the time is coming when many once unheard of sins may not only be protected by law, but when the wicked governments of the West will find those that disagree with the legalization of sin, and who shun those who engage in these sins, as a danger to society. This could happen if a believer's failure to follow the public acceptance of sexual immorality is considered to be a hate crime against humanity, and that time is fast approaching now that Gay Marriage and Transgenderism are being pushed as "normal".
Because the heretics in the Church of Laodicea believe the Health and Wealth Gospel of Positive Thinking, Satan's lie that man can be as god without repentance or regeneration, and Satan's lie that sin does not exist, they will be deceived, and will believe that the Antichrist is the real Messiah, especially if he preaches that all people are little gods. This lie is taught in the New Age Movement, in New Thought Churches that pretend to be Christian, in Hinduism and other Eastern Religions, and via the Ecumenical Movement that seeks to push the idea that all religions can lead to salvation - even without acceptance of the blood sacrifice of Christ on the Cross for our sins. But the Bible says that Yahshua or Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and no one comes to the Father but through Him (See John 14:6).
The ecumenical lie that all faiths can lead to salvation is being pushed by the Anglican Church and the Church of England ruled over by Queen Elizabeth II, and the Vatican and Roman Catholic Church ruled over by the Pope. These two religious leaders have shared the task of forming the Harlot Woman or Apostate Church that rides on the back of the Antichrist's Beast Government system. Many call this Beast government the New World Order, and see it as connected to a secret satanic organization called the Illuminati. But I believe this Beast Government is directly connected to NATO, and the United Nations.
The deceived people in the Church today who think that they are gods are involved in the "Positive Thinking" Churches that teach we can manifest our own reality through the power of thought. This is a lie because it relegates God to the category of wish fulfillment rather than our Divine Judge who defines who we should be by His will, and not out own. We must be in subjection to God, listening to His indwelling Spirit, and reading His Word in the Bible to know what His will is for us.
Like the "Positive Thinkers", New Age Occult groups and "New Thought" False Churches also think they can manifest their own reality. For this reason, they will likely readily take the Mark of the Beast because they refuse to believe the TRUTH of the Gospel of Salvation through Christ, and they deny the truth that sinners must REPENT and follow the Laws of God in Christ or they will perish. So they will not have any trouble worshiping the Beast and his image. Furthermore, the Bible says in Revelation 14:9-11 that anyone who takes the Mark of the Beast will NOT be forgiven, and will suffer forever in the Lake of Fire. It also says in Revelation 16:2 and Revelation 16:10-11 that those with the Mark will not repent anyway, even if they could be forgiven. Therefore, EVERYONE who takes the Mark of the Beast and that falsely teaches others that they can take the Mark and still be saved will perish forever in the Lake of Fire!
Authors Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, who wrote the "Left Behind" book series that was extremely popular reading material among Evangelical Christians in the 1990's taught that Christians could take the Mark of the Beast under certain circumstances and still be saved. But this is a flagrant departure from what it says in Scripture. Other Bible teachers that have been caught saying similar things include Brannon Howse, Jimmy DeYoung and John MacArthur. These three are among those teaching that those taking the Mark can still be saved, even though this is a blatant LIE! SO THAT YOU WILL NOT BE DECEIVED, here is a link to a web site that exposes these false teachers:
I also found this video exposing some of these false teachers who are promulgating this lie right now in the Church:
You Can Be Saved Say Apostates!!!:
Also, here are links to several great articles you can read for further information about why it is not only wrong, but ETERNALLY FATAL to take the Mark of the Beast:
WARNING! YOU CANNOT TAKE THE "MARK OF THE BEAST"
FOR ANY REASON AND STILL GO TO HEAVEN! - Part 1 of 2
WARNING! YOU CANNOT TAKE THE "MARK OF THE BEAST"
FOR ANY REASON AND STILL GO TO HEAVEN! - Part 2 of 2
I personally believe that, though these devices may be used on those who accept the Mark of the Beast, the true Mark is the evil ideology surrounding the worship of the Beast that must be accepted before the physical representation of the Mark of the Beast is given. After all, throughout the Bible we are told that what we believe - and how these beliefs shape our behavior - is what really matters to God. So that's something to think about.
