“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly,

that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith,

giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

Speaking lies in hypocrisy;

having their conscience seared with a hot iron;”

1st Timothy 4:1, 2

SATAN’S BRANDING IRON

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Branded.jpgThis above passage from 1st Timothy 4:1, 2 reveals the true nature of the Antichrist Beast’s Mark of 666: “…having their conscience seared with a hot iron;” 1st Timothy 4:2

.

Yes, it has always been the goal and purpose of Satan to indelibly stamp his character upon the hearts and minds of this world’s inhabitants. In a very real sense, the Beast’s mark has always been etched into the forehead (the heart & Mind), as well as the hand (the actions) of every human who has come into the world.

THE BEAST’S MARK

.

Listen to the prophecy concerning the Mark of the Beast…“And he (the 2nd Beast, False Prophet) causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:”  Revelation 13:16

.

Here is the purpose of Lucifer, now called the Devil and Satan: to brand each and every human with his sign of ownership: his character.

.

Just like the cattle of a ranch owner who brands his own cattle with his special mark, so does Satan brand his people with his own mark.

IT’S A TOTALITARIAN WORLD!

.

But listen again to Revelation, Chapter 13…“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 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: 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. ” Revelation 13:15-17

.

Here in this above passage is revealed a world-wide scenario of totalitarianism, “…AS MANY AS would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And HE CAUSES ALL…that NO MAN might buy or sell, save he that had the mark…” Revelation 13:15-17

ANTICHRIST FORCES ON THE MARCH!

.

So when will this totalitarian world-system happen? Or are we now beginning to see such a https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_sign_in_Federal_Plaza_Chicago.jpgtotalitarian world beginning to be formed?

.

Oh yes, it seems that right this very minute, the world is going through a metamorphosis in which the entire world is becoming a place which no longer tolerates Christianity!

.

Laws are being enacted, and even private entities are closing their doors to any group or person whom they do not like.

“THE GOD OF THIS WORLD”

2nd Corinthians 4:4

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG.

But do not imagine that this great paradigm shift is merely the efforts of humans. No! Truth-be-told, this is nothing less than the fulfillment of Revelation 13, now being orchestrated by that wily “serpent of old”, Lucifer, Satan, the Devil! 

.

And now we are seeing this hate-filled “god of this world” beginning to operate with leopard-like speed, as he morphs this world into a giant spider-web.

GOOD NEWS!

.

Well, there is still Good News to be received, in spite of this seemingly horrendous and hopeless situation! Yes, there is deliverance for all those who desire to “escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” Luke http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg21:34

.

Listen to the entire quote from this passage in Luke’s Gospel… “And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 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.” Luke 21:34-36

.

Here is the remedy! To keep ourselves from allowing Satan to wrap us up with all sorts of earthly entanglements, so that we cannot spend the proper time praying, studying, and contemplating God’s Word.

“GREAT AND PRECIOUS PROMISES!”

2nd Peter 1:4

.

No, we must now instead begin to hide His great and precious promises in our hearts, while at the same time, shutting off as much of the world-loving influences which Satan has been polluting our hearts and minds with!

.

And we have many promises for all true worshipers of God, such as this…“Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ…For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure…” Philippians 1:6 & 2:13

.

With such promises as this, how can God’s people possibly fail!?

ARK SEEN IN HEAVEN

.Ark of the Covenant Constellation

.

“And the temple of God was opened in Heaven, and there was seen in His temple the ark of His testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.” Rev. 11:19

.

The above verse from Revelation, speaks of God’s Temple in Heaven being opened. But this great constellation the Sagittarius Constellation is actually being the constellation of the Ark of the Covenant. So these two events (the Ark in Heaven seen, and this Ark in the night-sky revealed) go hand in hand simultaneously. The Ark Constellation, as sketched in to this Wikipedia star-chart, is a representation of the heavenly Ark, as God begins to open up the spiritual concepts of that true Ark to our minds.
