If you are not ready for Rapture, know what's coming
It is not only the mark you should be concerned about, the mark is the final seal1 Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads; on each of its horns there was a crown, and on each of its heads there was a name that was insulting to God. 2 The beast looked like a leopard, with feet like a bear's feet and a mouth like a lion's mouth. The dragon gave the beast his own power, his throne, and his vast authority. 3 One of the heads of the beast seemed to have been fatally wounded, but the wound had healed. The whole earth was amazed and followed the beast. 4 Everyone worshipped the dragon because he had given his authority to the beast. They worshipped the beast also, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who can fight against it?” 5 The beast was allowed to make proud claims which were insulting to God, and it was permitted to have authority for forty-two months. 6 It began to curse God, his name, the place where he lives, and all those who live in heaven. 7 It was allowed to fight against God's people and to defeat them, and it was given authority over every tribe, nation, language, and race. 8 All people living on earth will worship it, except those whose names were written before the creation of the world in the book of the living which belongs to the Lamb that was killed. 9 “Listen, then, if you have ears! 10 Whoever is meant to be captured will surely be captured; whoever is meant to be killed by the sword will surely be killed by the sword. This calls for endurance and faith on the part of God's people.” 11 Then I saw another beast, which came up out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb's horns, and it spoke like a dragon. 12 It used the vast authority of the first beast in its presence. It forced the earth and all who live on it to worship the first beast, whose wound had healed. 13 This second beast performed great miracles; it made fire come down out of heaven to earth in the sight of everyone. 14 And it deceived all the people living on earth by means of the miracles which it was allowed to perform in the presence of the first beast. The beast told them to build an image in honour of the beast that had been wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 The second beast was allowed to breathe life into the image of the first beast, so that the image could talk and put to death all those who would not worship it. 16 The beast forced all the people, small and great, rich and poor, slave and free, to have a mark placed on their right hands or on their foreheads. 17 No one could buy or sell without having this mark, that is, the beast's name or the number that stands for the name. 18 This calls for wisdom. Whoever is intelligent can work out the meaning of the number of the beast, because the number stands for a human name. Its number is 666.
It is not only the mark you should be worried about, there is more than the mark before the mark, the mark is the final seal of the 666 there is more than the mark. It is a system that comes together because it is about not worshipping the beast or its image and not receiving its mark either on their forehead or their hands. Most Christians are just looking for the mark that's it, nothing else yet the mark will come last. Revelation 20:4 Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those wwho had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand yeears. Refusing the mark of the beast or getting your head chopped off is not a guarantee to enter Heaven, you must accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and repent from your sins before you die or before you are killed in the Great Tribulation.
God said to Abraham go to the land that l will show you. God did not give any part of the land to Abraham but he promised that he will give it to his descendants. You have to learn to trust God and wait for his promises. Genesis 15:8 But Abram asked, “Sovereign Lord, how can l know that it will be mine?” The Lord asked him to bring a sacrifice. Abraham didn't live in Canaan, he was living outside it waiting for the land he was promised to get after four hundred years, he was even told that his descendants will live as slaves for four hundred years before they get that land. Abraham knew by then he will be dead but he trusted God and knew he will fulfill his promises and he told his children about the promises of the Lord. We must tell our families and relatives about the Lord's promises to those who follow him. If we to Church or Gathering it is not our Pastor, Evangelist or our Priest's responsibility to do that because most of them will not do it. Why? Because most of them deny the Holy Spirit so he will not tell them that Rapture is due or anytime now we will be in the Great Tribulation. Most of them do not read or like the book of Revelation so they won't even go there. The information is there in black and white in Revelation and we must read it and be ready for the coming of Jesus.
These days Christians do not know what the Lord Jesus promised and what they have to go through to get those promises. They think that because of grace everything is easy. If you are not ready for Rapture you have to know the Bible to make it to the Millennial Kingdom and you have to know the prize given to those who endure to the end. “Revelation 2:10 Don't be afraid of anything you are about to suffer. Listen! The Devil will put you to the test by having some of you thrown into prison, and your troubles will last ten days. Be faithful to me, even if it means death, and l will give you life as your prize of victory.” Once you find yourself in the Great Tribulation focus on His promises and be faithful even if it means death.
