Revelation 13 contains a warning that has mesmerized the world since the 19th century. It warns the world, not just believers but also disbelievers about buying and selling and using the mark of the beast. For instance, you may have been caused to have 100 casino coins in a bucket handed to you. You are told, use them to put into the slot machines. You will be rich and happy. But he won’t do it. So to the steadfast person who is determined not sin against the Lord, does holding a bucket full of casino chips make him a gambler? No. He becomes a warrior for the Lord. He resists sinning in a sinful world. The gambler will be the one who uses the chips in the slot machine. He becomes a player. He uses the mark (mark in German is a currency) to exchange for a fortune. He has become a gambler. And to the man or the woman who uses the mark of the beast to buy or sell, he or she has become part of the system of the beast.
One Of The Most Important Advice
16 Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave,[e] to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, 17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.
For believers, buying and selling with the mark of the beast will cause an irreversible change to the kingdom citizenship. This is very serious. And so, as a pastor, it is my job to sound the shofar pre-emptively. There is no use to sound the shofar for warning to one who has already fallen down in worship to the beast, or his image. He has taken the exit off the Way to heaven. He or she shall surely be evicted. For in multiple places, the visions of John warns, in the following chapter (14), that transgression begins with worship. It all goes back to the First Commandment. Worship the Lord only. No man may serve two masters, the Word of God sternly instructs the multitude. The multitude is consisted of seekers, disciples and disbelievers.
“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and Mammon.
It is all God or nothing. You cannot worship God and worship a better life, or a longer life, or to “be yourself”, or break the Laws of God or be a heathen side by side. Jesus has already put down a disclaimer at the onset of following Him. Bear your cross daily. Not His cross, YOUR cross. Capische?
Technology in the end times allows for changing one’s gender from a male or a female to a freak gender. Genetic engineering offers gene therapy to cancer patients to beat cancer. I have a friend who family loved one was diagnosed in 2016 with a terminal condition. The family flew the member to a gene therapy facility in Scottsdale Arizona. That place is called the Ironwood Cancer Research Center. They change the cancer patient DNA so that the cancer will not attack the h+ non-human tissues. The only way that the human may exempt from human diseases is to transform into an h+. It is the transhuman.
In their literature, Ironwood states,
What are the advantages of Ironwood Women’s Centers for Breast & Gynecologic Surgery?
Diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant disease
Hereditary genetic testing including BRCA1/2, Lynch syndrome, and many other cancer predisposition syndromes
High-risk management and surveillance
Aspiration of cysts and abscesses
Breast wound management
Upon arrival, the member decided against receiving their treatment, and thus averting the danger of losing the right to redemption by Christ. The member was shortly hospitalized in the ICU with just a few days to live, at least according to man, and that was the opinion of the medical team. All the family gathered around the member for saying goodbys. At least the member may die with dignity.
A student of mine had been praying for the salvation of this individual and time was of the essence. There were not many days left of life. The member was in the ICU and they tried several pain drugs to help the patient, causing hallucinations and nausea. It was very unpleasant. I went to support my student and entered the ICU with a prayer walk. The patient had visited my school in the past and we were pleased to re-connect. We spoke Scripture in the ward. It was amazing that the Almighty permitted us a favor to be walking and speaking in the ICU. It was very unusual. I felt that because of the patient’s honoring her birthright that there would not be an DNA editing allowed, God will be merciful.
Then a favor was granted.
The patient received Christ as Savior. It was very peaceful when it happened and there were a lot of tears. In fact, the patient did not die and went on to live serving the Lord.
Buy Or Sell
It would have been a different outcome had the patient traded the death warrant for a prolonged life by selling the human birthright and had the DNA changed. Jesus says, I come to give them Life. Life is eternal. For a few years’ extension and a lot of money, many people in the last days will trade by buying health and prolonged life and selling their God given human DNA in order to serve the beast. That is a tragic end to the quest for many people. satan knows his time is short and he has technology and Genetic Engineering for part of his armory. He said to Eve, “you shall not surely die, God is wrong. Trust me.”
Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You[a plural for you] shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” 2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, 3 but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’” 4 But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
And so we come to this juncture in 2019 where everyone who yearns for more time with family, more health, more smarts, more of something close to their hearts may face a temptation. “Will you sell ?”
“If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he also will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.
Don’t use it to buy or sell your rights as a human for you will forfeit the human right to receive redemption from God in Christ.
Newborn DNA Banking. This fact may make some expecting parents to consider the merits of birthing the child outside of America.
The DNA of virtually every newborn in the United States is collected and tested soon after birth. To collect the DNA sample, medical personnel prick the newborn’s heel and place a few drops of blood on a card. The DNA goes to the bank for records.
From the ALCU site:
There are some good reasons for this testing, but it also raises serious privacy concerns that parents should know about.
States require hospitals to screen newborns for certain genetic and other disorders. Many states view the testing as so important they do not require medical personnel to get parents’ express permission before carrying it out. To collect the DNA sample, medical personnel prick the newborn’s heel and place a few drops of blood on a card. There is one question that new parents rarely ask: What happens to the blood spots after the testing is done? This is where newborn screening becomes problematic.
Millennials at age 20 and below born as a US citizen had no choice but deposit their biometric essential data, their DNA at birth to the central bank. But that does not mean that he or she is part of the beast. However, if these millennials will activate that DNA to buy or sell their rights to receiving Christ as a human, that is when they become disqualified for eternal life in Christ. Jesus will not stop loving them. In fact, He knew it before it will happen. Consider this Scripture, it is written,
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me:
Who said that to Hosea? Red letters you got it. Hosea 4 1
Hear the Word of יהוה the Lord, ye children of Israel: for the Lord hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.
