Revelation 13:16-18 says: “He causes all, small and great, rich and poor, free and slaves, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, which no one can buy or sell except he who has the mark or the name of the beast. . , or the number of his name. Here is the wisdom. Let him who has intelligence calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: his number is 666.
It is very important in this season for us to understand the Book of Revelation. Many pastors and individuals are afraid to read this book, but it is relevant. Signs, seasons and symbols are essential in the Book of Revelation. The mark of the beast isn’t just a simple matter of a chip placed in your forehead. It is a system that companies and merchants impose.
They will join with political leaders and impose laws and decrees that are Antichrist, that is, against Christ and the Word of God. Once you refuse, they will try to deprive you of food and funding (subsidies, food stamps, etc.), and they will impose sanctions on organizations or nations that don’t agree.
The Antichrist will pass through the economic system, and the beast represents an embodiment of political and social evils.
The number six symbolizes the carnal image of the flesh. It represents the carnal nature and number of man. This means that a world leader will arise who will be empowered by Satan.
Daniel 11:37 says:
“He will not consider the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor will he consider any god; for he will rise above them all.”
The right hand represents allegiance, power, honor. To whom will we have allegiance at the end of time? Who will we honor? Each person will have to decide. Many are already doing it for money and power.
According to Daniel 11:37, the Antichrist will have no desire for God, women or the Church. Money and power are the only things he will worship. The Antichrist will change definitions and make new decrees. He will glorify sin and call it otherwise.
Revelation 13:7 lets us know that believers all over the world will be persecuted and beheaded and forced to accept unclean lifestyles and false religions.
Revelation 13:4-5 reminds us that men will worship the Antichrist for power. He will be a powerful speaker, but he will ridicule and blaspheme Jesus and the Bible. There is a difference between “Antichrist” and “Antichrist”. “Anti-Christ” is used to refer to systems and/or people against Jesus Christ and who are precursors to the main person of Antichrist. The Antichrist is the one who will prove to be and bring the solution to all the problems of the world – claiming equality for all.
Whenever you see the word “Beast” in the Bible, it symbolizes animal characteristics in behavior. The Antichrist will have the help of Satan and will have demons and fallen angels to carry out his orders! Many rulers will sell their souls for power and money in order to get rich.
You are going to see many organizations coming out of nowhere supporting spiritual fornication and adultery. They must do this to establish their dominance in the market.
The Book of Revelation speaks of Babylon; and Babylon is a Godless system. Babylon comes from the spirit of Nimrod. Study Revelation 18 and you will see his rebellion against God.
Revelation 8:3-4 says: “For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the abundance of her luxury.” And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you be partakers of her sins, and receive of her plagues.”
Any believer or individual who calls himself a Christian, who supports or is part of the Babylonian system in any way, God is calling out; otherwise, they will receive the same judgment as those who enter the Babylonian system.
Every believer must look within and seriously ask the question, “To whom do I pledge allegiance?”
Recognize that believers can get caught up in the Babylonian system if they rebel against the Lord. There’s no way in the world anyone can serve two masters.
Let it be known that Jesus does not return as Savior, but He returns as Judge.
I John 2:18 reminds us: “Little children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many Antichrists have come, whereby we know it is the last hour.”
