1 After these things I looked, and there was a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet said: “Come up here so that I can show you what must happen after these things.” 2 Immediately I was in the Spirit, and a throne was standing in heaven with someone seated on it! 3 And the one seated on it was like jasper and carnelian in appearance, and a rainbow looking like it was made of emerald encircled the throne. Revelation 4:1 – 3
There is a certain perspective we need to have when thinking about the end-times. If we lose this perspective, we easily become lost in the wrong details and quickly become overwhelmed.
“However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.” Matthew 24:36
When discussing the end of days, there is still so much we don’t know. That being the case, we need to nail down what we do know. So, here’s what we know…
16 And it makes everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, 17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark: the beast’s name or the number of its name. Revelation 13:16 – 17
After all the press its gotten, who in their right mind would take the mark of the beast? The answer is pretty plain for anyone who cares to look…
This calls for wisdom: Let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, because it is the number of a person. Its number is 666. Revelation 13:18
If you, or someone you know, is concerned about possibly taking the mark of the beast, please read on…
Look! He comes with the clouds of heaven.
And everyone will see him—
even those who pierced him.
And all the nations of the world
will mourn for him.
Yes! Amen! Revelation 1:7
