THE END-TIME MARK OF THE ANTICHRIST (VII)

Israel goes back to Temple worship when the Antichrist finally shows up

(…continued from part 6…)

(VII)    Another truth is that this evil personage cannot pin anyone down and give this number to an unwilling soul. Those who cannot endure, plucking from the ratiocinatio of volitionalism, will ask to receive the mark. Jesus would still have His remnant, who did not believe the Word of salvation –before the rapture– in the turbulent world. They will pay for their salvation with their own blood, for stubborn pluck of the refusal to take the accursed number. God is always in control. He orchestrates all events to suit His will. If the Antichrist should overstep his boundaries, (by a deceitful chip injection, or forcibly against one’s will, should put the mark on any remnant) he will be shocked that God may lessen his days from three and a half years to a couple of months or even days. Jehovah is the ultimate Judge! Amen!

Fake Christ has no sheep: “The abomination of desolation.”

                Why is 666 his number? Rev. Chris Okotie explained it thus: “Adam, the first man, was created on day number six –Exodus 31:17. Jesus Christ, the second Man is 6+6 i.e. 66 or 12 –12 disciples; 12 tribes of Israel. The third man, the fake ‘Christ’ is 6+6+6 or 666.” His name —the third man—, as the Bible couches, goes with his number (Revelation 13:18). Period! What a revelation!  

         Christians are God’s property

            Get born again. Become Jesus’ bona fide property. This automatically exempts you from the impending tribulation. What Jesus Christ promises is eternal life (John 3:16). What does the Bible say, concerning Christians? It is in 1Peter 2:9-10, But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 10) Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.”  

With the rapture, Christians are exempted from taking the number 666.

                ‘Chosen’ of verse 9 is eklektos (ek-lek-tos’), meaning: ‘select; by implication favorite.’ ‘Generation’ is ethnos (eth’-nos) ‘a race (as of the same habit), that is, a tribe; specifically a foreign (non-Jewish) one (usually by implication pagan).’ What is ‘peculiar’? Peripoiēsis (per-ee-poy’-ay-sis) and it means: ‘a preserving, a preservation; possession, one’s own property; an obtaining, acquisition.’ Peripoiēsis gives a picture of a circle with a dot within. God is the circle while the Christian is the dot. God will not open the circle for any evil incursion. When He does, it is because the quiddity of His ‘peculiarity’ can handle it. Amen!

Christians shall not come into condemnation

                The tribulation is God’s anger on Israel. As for the Christians, the promise is: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life (Joh 5:24). Paul’s scriptural corroboration is, There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit” (Romans 8:1). Let me cap it with: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2Corinthians 5:17). Amen!

                Let us use scriptural facticity to do justice. Can the Antichrist really give the number and mark of his name to true born-again Christians? The Bible has all the answers to these seemingly knotty questions. Let us start from the beginning of scriptural couch.

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman” [Genesis 3:15]

                Genesis 3:15, And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” Borrowing from the teaching of my Pastor, Rev. Chris Okotie, this clearly teaches that the physical contact of aggression between the Antichrist and the Church does not receive Divine authorization. It is between Jesus and the Devil. Where was the prophesy fulfilled? On the gory cross of Calvary, of course. The Antichrist has no Divine authority to touch the Christians: we are the mystical body of Christ, the Second Member of the Godhead. The enmity is between the woman and the evil spirit behind the incursive serpent. Satan is the evil spirit while the woman is the Church.

                There is absolutely nothing this Antichrist can do outside the allotment of empyrean authorization. He and his Lucifer, the father of lies, know that they dare not operate outside Divine rules.

Eschatological vials of Jehovah’s wrath

                Folks, this is why you just must be born again (John 3:7) before your earthly time is up! Pray the prayer of all prayers: the one that gets you born again. Are you ready? It must come from the core of your heart, and believing every word. Here we go; say:

Dear heavenly Father, I come to you now, in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe in my heart that Jesus died for my sins. I believe that You raised Him from the dead (for my justification). I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord, and I receive Him as my Lord and Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!

    • The immutability of the LORD God is found in 1Samuel 15:29, “The Preeminent One of Israel does not go back on his word or change his mind, for he is not a human being who changes his mind.”

      This immutability mirrors:
      a) His divine purpose in Psalm 33:11 “The LORD’s decisions stand forever; his plans abide throughout the ages.”
      b) His faithfulness in Psalm 119:89-91
      c) His mercy in Malachi 3:6 “Since, I, the LORD, do not go back on my promises, you, sons of Jacob, have not perished.”
      This brings me to His divine protocol, the Bible. In the Book of Daniel 9:24-27, it is clear that the Temple worship is meant; this is the last verse: “He will confirm a covenant with many for one week. But in the middle of that week he will bring sacrifices and offerings to a halt. On the wing of abominations will come one who destroys, until the decreed end is poured out on the one who destroys” [Daniel 9:27]. Some Bible commentaries teach that the active entity of this verse is the Christ. Will Christ be the abominable actor of His Matthew 24:15? The persecutor of the abominable act is none other than the Antichrist.

      Yes, God will, no doubt, make sure of the building of the Jerusalem Temple to complement the eschatological vaticination. Amen.
