GROOMSDAY PREPPERS TRUTH


Amos 8:11 "The Famine of the End Times is for Hearing of the Word of God."


Proverbs 27:12 “A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished”.


Are you a Wise person or a Simpleton? Do you believe all the talk of an Economic Recovery? Do you believe that all the Bailouts and Stimulus are going to fix anything? Are you going to let the Nightly News tell you that every little thing is going to be all right? That may be a good Bob Marley song, but it’s a Fairy Tale. No matter how much money they print, the Emperor Has No Clothes. Many are aware that things are going to get worse, but how are they preparing? Where are we supposed to HIDE ourselves? In a Doomsday Bunker?


Psalms 91 “He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”
Psalms 32:7 “You are my hiding place; you shall preserve me from trouble; you shall surround me about with songs of deliverance. “
Psalms 119 “Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.”
Psalms 27:5 “For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.”
Isaiah 32:2 “Each will be like a refuge from the wind And a shelter from the storm, Like streams of water in a dry country, Like the shade of a huge rock in a parched land.”


A lot of people are leaving God out of their plans. Anyone who has seen Doomsday Preppers will notice that some are putting a tremendous amount of time, thought and effort into how they are going to survive. A lot of that time would be better spent getting to know the only one who really can preserve their life. ANY plan that leaves God out is futile.


Luke 17:33 “Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall preserve it.”
John 9:4 “We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us. The night is coming, and then no one can work.”


Now before some of you Christians laugh too hard at these people, you might want to examine your own beliefs. Do you believe God still Judges nations? “Oh, that’s just Old Testament, he doesn’t do that anymore. The OT no longer applies, we are under grace. We’re a Christian Nation, so God won’t Judge us.” Oh really? 2nd Corinthians 5:10. “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad”.
Jeremiah 7:4 Do not trust in deceptive words and say, “This is the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD!”


In other words don’t say God Bless America, or We are a Christian Nation, I’m Proud to be an American (Pride comes before the Fall), They hate us for our Liberty, We’re fighting for Freedom, In God We Trust, Patriotism, ect. How often have you heard a stadium full of people chanting ‘USA, USA, USA’? Sounds a lot like that verse doesn’t it? The people of Jerusalem thought they were safe because they had the ‘Temple of the Lord’, they thought God was on THEIR side. They didn’t listen to Jeremiahs warnings. He was a fear-monger, a gloom and doomer. They threw him in a well to get him to Shut Up. There is nothing new under the sun, people still don’t want to hear. Some people may treat you the same way when you warn them that the Judgment of God is Coming!


Some believe that if we would only turn back to God and the constitution, we could still save this country. States are talking about seceding. These people have good motives, but they are not getting to the root of the problem. Everybody needs to read Deuteronomy 28 to understand that we are under a curse because we have Forsaken God. Most of those curses are here, and the rest will soon follow. We deserve Obama. God already told us, why should we be surprised?


Duet 28:36 “The LORD will drive you and the king you set over you to a nation unknown to you or your fathers.” God sends Judgment for a reason – to cause Repentance.
Isaiah 26:9 “for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.”
Does anybody see a Ninevah-level repentance going on? Maybe for a week after 9-11, church attendance picked up for a while, but nothing has changed. I see a lot of people talking about gun rights, but not repentance.


Ezekial 14:14 “…..even if these three men–Noah, Daniel and Job–were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign LORD.”


NOBODY can save this country now. We’ve already missed all of the Harbinger Warnings. If Noah, Daniel and Job themselves walked the streets of America daily calling for repentance, they could not save it. We can only save ourselves.


Jeremiah 7:16 “Therefore pray not you for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear you.” We can pray for our families, friends, and loved ones. That they would repent and get ready for what’s coming. We can pray for the church. But praying for America as a whole is a futile effort. God will not even hear that prayer at this point.


Jeremiah 4:22 “For My people are fools; they do not know Me. They are sottish children, without understanding. They are skilled in doing what is evil, but they do not know how to do what is good.”
Jeremiah continues on and describes how God destroyed the world that was. ‘These things were written as our example.
If God did not spare the world that was, if he did not spare Jerusalem (twice), if he Judged Israel numerous times, what makes people think he is going to spare America? God uses some pretty strong language here. Sottish basically means stupid, so he’s calling you a stupid fool if you think he won’t Judge us. I would highly recommend a book by brother Jonathan Hansen called ‘The Science of Judgement‘…We need to understand the laws (the rules of design)for prophecy and judgment. Once we understand these God-given laws, then we can ignore denominational approval and just accept the facts based on the science of judgment and prophecy.


In this, we become seekers of truth for only truth makes up the law of judgment.
Ezekial 9: 4, “ And the LORD said unto the angel, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.”
Are you sighing and crying for the abominations being done in America? And not just the abortions, gay marriage, shootings, TV, movies, drugs, perversion, illuminati music, sex slave trade, ect. But the fake wars (Dirty Wars Documentary) being fought in the name of a ‘Christian’ America and a ‘Jewish’ Israel (more on the Israel debate later). Supposedly bringing ‘Democracy’ to the world? Do you weep for the innocent victims of war?


I hope you are, because that mark on your forehead just might help save you in the days ahead. The angels will protect you when it’s our turn. These war crimes we’re committing are going to be recompensed back on us.


Duet 28:25 “The LORD will cause you to be defeated before your enemies. You will come at them from one direction but flee from them in seven, and you will become a thing of horror to all the kingdoms on earth.”
Micah 2:3 Therefore, the LORD says: “I am planning disaster against this people, from which you cannot save yourselves. You will no longer walk proudly, for it will be a time of calamity.”
Rev 18:14 “Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues;”


Some people are actually leaving the country. I think it has more to do with leaving Spiritually. Come out of the Apostate Religion, Politics, pop CULTure, Idolatry, ect. We can be protected here like the three Hebrew children in the fiery furnace.
However, God isn’t going to dispatch an angel to protect you if you’re bowing before American Idolatry. If you’re not doing his will, if you’re not ‘studying to show yourself approved‘, and ‘watching your life and doctrine closely‘.
Would you rather rely on a gun for your protection, or an Angelic Bodyguard? The rioting crowd sought to throw Jesus off a cliff, but nobody could touch him. Whole battalions of soldiers tried to arrest Elijah and he called fire down on them.


An Angel slew thousands of Israels enemies in one night. Do you want protection like that in times of trouble? To be hidden in Him? God put a ‘hedge of protection’ around Job, and he can put one around us.
Another mistake some Christians are making is depending TOO MUCH on Him. ‘God will provide if things get bad’. IF? IF THINGS GET BAD? That is sort of like backwards faith. They don’t believe God is actually going to Judge this wicked nation. They’re ignoring the warnings from his Word and his present day Watchmen. What do you do when you hear a Tornado siren? Stand on your front lawn and ask God to protect you? Do you drive through red lights claiming God’s grace? Drive on Thin Ice ignoring all signs?
Any sane person would call you a fool. Is God any different? Did Jesus throw himself off the cliff? Then don’t Tempt God by ignoring his warnings. Do you plan on eating stones by turning them to bread when the famine hits? We have the examples of Noah, Joseph, the 5 wise Virgins. You need to do what you can to prepare and then rely on God for what you cannot. Don’t rely on someone else like the foolish Virgins.


Most will be struggling to take care themselves. Would you show up at a Pot-Luck (Oneg) empty handed thinking God will provide all food? Plan a long road trip without bringing any money, gas, clothes? And call that faith?
Duet 28:33 “A people that you do not know (Communist China?) will eat what your land and labor produce, and you will have nothing but cruel oppression all your days.”
Soon the dollar will be worthless, and food prices will skyrocket; then your chance to prepare is over. Then you will be at the mercy of a Tyrannical NWO Communist Government. If you are planning on any help from them, you better do a little historical research on Communism.
Yes, food is being used as a weapon.

The famine has already started!! Half of what you find in the grocery stores is inedible!
Leviticus 26:26 When I break your staff of bread, ten women will bake your bread in one oven, and they will bring back your bread [b]in rationed amounts, so that you will eat and not be satisfied.” America is the most overfed and yet undernourished country on the face of the planet. It is by design, a curse allowed to come upon us.
Micah 6:13 Therefore, I have begun to destroy you, to ruin you because of your sins. You will eat but not be satisfied; your stomach will still be empty. You will store up but save nothing, because what you save I will give to the sword.”
The same thing Stalin did is being done here. Giant Agri-Business is taking over everything. Many people have seen Food Inc on Public TV. Our supply of actual edible good food is very limited and shrinking. Another film people NEED TO SEE is Farmageddon. And Sustainable Table Movie.


Famine is coming!! It is already here. The 2012 record Drought should be a huge WAKE UP call. How bad will it get?
Duet 28:55….and he will not give to one of them any of the flesh of his children that he is eating. It will be all he has left because of the suffering your enemy will inflict on you during the siege of all your cities.” That’s pretty bad. It actually happened during the siege of Jerusalem. How big of a Gambler are you? How long do you want to wait before you start preparing?
Don’t think you have a lot of time left to build your Ark of Safety, to store some food. Don’t just THINK about it. Delivery time for a lot of places is at minimum 6-7 weeks. By now probably longer. One more terrorist attack, the Strait of Hormuz closing, another bank crisis and there will be PANIC buying and Food Riots! It happened as recently as Christmas 2012 in Argentina. And Spring 2014 in Venezuela. Don’t think it can’t happen here.
2 Kings 6:25“ And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass’s head was sold for fourscore `pieces’ of silver, and the fourth part of a kab of dove’s dung for five `pieces’ of silver.”
I’ve never tried a Donkey’s head, and I’ve for sure never tried Pigeon dung. But apparently you had to pay good money to get it! Some people better get themselves some good ol’ common Horse Sense, or they’ll be eating Donkey Brains. Most Americans wouldn’t even have a piece of silver to buy a Donkey’s Head. Most still trust in a valueless piece of paper, 401Ks, and Retirement Plans.


They used paper money as fire kindling during Germany’s Hyperinflation. You better take that soon-to-be Worthless piece of Paper and Trade it for something that actually has value while you still can! At this point, I would not recommend Gold & Silver. It’s too late for that. Storable Food & Survival Supplies would be your best investment. And of course Investing in the Kingdom by sowing into Ministries that are doing the word of God as Revelation 12:14 says; The only group of people the dragon is angry at is; THOSE WHO KEEP ALL 10 OF GOD’S COMMANDMENTS AND HAVE THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST!


People ABSOLUTELY need to understand how the Petro-Dollar system works. Oil can ONLY be traded using dollars. THIS IS COMING TO AN END!! This is the ONLY reason the dollar is the Worlds Reserve Currency. The ONLY reason our Economy has not Already Collapsed.
This is ONE of the real reasons for the Wars in Iraq 1&2, Libya, Syria, Iran and now Ukraine. All of these countries abandoned the Petro-Dollar system and paid the consequences. Well, countries like China and Russia have had enough! America will no longer get away with throwing their weight around! We have awakened the Bear and the Dragon!


Anybody following the Syrian and Ukraine Civil War will see that lines between Russia, China, Syria, Iran VS America, Israel & NATO are being drawn.
There is much, much more to this war than meets the eye. This is the beginning of Ezekial 38 and the Gog Magog war. This is the end of America and the Dollar. This is the end of life as we have known it. Perilous Times are ahead. Nathan Leal keeps warning that Lamentations is coming to America. The next Great Depression, only with Terrorist Attacks, Biological Warfare, and Mass Civil Unrest on top of it. Are you going to rely on the Government to take care of you? Look what happened at the New Orleans Super Dome, the most recent FEMA camps for Hurricane Sandy, the Japanese Americans during WWII, the American Indians.


They may promise to feed you at the FEMA camps, but you can check in anytime you want, will you ever leave? And yes, there will be FORCED Vaccinations there.


The decisions you make in the next days, weeks, months, are going to determine where you end up. With other Christians in a Network of support and resources, or Camp FEMA, or Dead. We pray you make wise decisions. Decisions based upon the bible, prophecy, and advice from other informed Christians (don’t just listen to me). But most definitely don’t make them based upon Mainstream News, False Prosperity Ministries, and Government Press Conferences.


And finally for some Good News:

The Mark of the Beast 

is Not 666


IT IS WRITTEN:  Here is wisdom, let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man: and his number is six hundred threescore and six. Revelation 13:18


This is a biblical exegesis on the mark of the beast and the number of the beast, 666, which is the number of a man.


God wants you to know what it is, in detail, according to his word, so you will not receive it and worship its image. It is written: “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”


You will have  one, or, the other. Choose Life.  \o/

 

There are only two groups of people on the earth.

1. Those that have the seal of God.

2. Those that have the Mark of the beast and worship its image.   


Remember , the dragon, (the devil) is only angry with one group of people! The Word of God calls them the elect, or the saints. 

It is written: “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” Revelation 12:17

 

There is no neutral ground. Remember what Moses said in Exodus 32:26,   “Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD’s side? let him come unto me.” And remember what Elijah said at Mount Carmel. 1st Kings 18:21, “and Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him.”

 

Joshua 24:15, “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the LORD, to serve other gods; For the LORD our God, he it is that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed:

 

Jesus said; No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon

(Matthew 6:24). Hence, the reason for, “no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Do you now understand?

 

We all have free will to choose.

 

It’s all about WORSHIP. Who, do, you, worship?


Romans 6:16  gives us the answer, through obedience. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

 

Obey the Roman Catholic Sun-worship-Day, of rest and worship "or" obey God and rest and worship on His Holy 7th Day of Rest, Saturday. (Genesis 2:2-3), (Exodus 20: 10), (Deuteronomy 5:14).

 

It is written: “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.”Acts 5:29


The Forth Commandment of our Father God: (And God spake all these words, saying;) “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.”

Bible Prophecy predicts that the beast power causes “all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave” and that whoever receives this fatal mark will be doomed forever!

 

Revelation 14:9-11 says their destiny will be “fire,” “brimstone” and “the wrath of God.” If you search the entire Bible, you will never find a more solemn warning than what is written in this passage, and thus it is evidently something very significant and extremely important to God. Despite this, there are countless Christians that have concluded there are no clear answers on what the mark of the beast can be. There is no doubt that God is very serious about this subject but the primary motive behind His passionate warning is His genuine love for all of mankind.

Since the mark of the beast is such an extremely important issue to God, why would He make it incomprehensible? Jesus said in Revelation 1:3 that the reader who hears and understands the words of the prophecies contained in this book are blessed. God has always intended for us to comprehend the book of Revelation and the mark of the beast is no exception. The truth can be understood and is already known by millions, but the deceived majority has no idea because they are fighting with all their heart, might and soul to avoid something that has always been exceedingly important to God.

The mark of the beast comes indirectly from Satan and not the Lord and thus the Bible is really warning us about a final assault from an ancient foe against our souls. The mark of the beast is the Devils greatest delusion and it occurs just before Jesus Christ returns. When prophecy minded Christians contemplate the mark of the beast, they commonly assume it will be some sort of hi-tech computerized microchip that will be surgically inserted into human skin by big government. Others are convinced the mark will take the form of a national ID card without which no one can buy or sell. Apocalyptic movies portray masses of people with the number 666 tattooed on their foreheads. Endless speculation exists with the keyword being speculation.

Most really don’t know what the mark of the beast is at all. For instance, the majority believe that 666 is the mark of the beast yet how many have missed that Revelation 13:17 says that the number and the mark are two separate symbols and so it is not possible for the mark of the beast to be 666.

Revelation 19:20 states, “He deceived them that had received the mark of the beast.” The Devil is no fool and the mark of the beast is by far his greatest end time delusion and why those who get the mark of the beast are deceived. Since the mark of the beast dupes the entire world, it must be something the majority is already deceived on and not very obvious. Just think for a moment. How many people do you know that would allow big government to implant something inside their heads? And how deceptive would that be anyway?

 

What is the Mark of the Beast?


The purpose of this biblical exegesis is to pinpoint exactly what the “mark of the beast” is and who enforces it so you can avoid it! Those alive on earth when the mark of the beast is enforced must resist it at all costs as it is a life or death choice with the destiny of our souls at stake. So we will be avoiding hazy speculation and sticking with plain facts found in the King James Holy Bible. Sola Scriptura.


Open your Bible and let’s see what GOD says!


You will be surprised how much ignorance there is on what the Word actually does say about the mark of the beast. The information contained here may be shocking to some but nevertheless, the details come directly from history and the Holy Bible, the Word of God.

 

We just read how Revelation 19:20 says, “He deceived them that had received the mark of the beast” so we know that 666 and the mark of the beast has to involve some sort of subtle deception or be something we are already deceived on. If the mark was some form of technology that the entire world already seems to think is the obvious answer, then how could almost the entire world be mislead? Jesus warned us that Satan’s deceptions are so deceptive they can “deceive, if possible, even the elect.” Matthew 24:24.


Microchip Technology - Biochip, Verichip or Barcode etc?


How deceptive would it be for someone to command everyone to accept a computerized microchip in their forehead or hands? The Bible does not specifically say it will be a microchip such as a “miniature biochip or verichip” or that it will even involve any form of technology. These modern words, “biochip,” “verichip,” “bar code,” “computer” and “technology” do not appear in Revelation. People just assume that it will happen this way but it is nothing but pure and total speculation. How many people do you know that would accept the government implanting microchip technology inside their heads?

Most also seem to overlook the mark of God that also goes on our forehead? What factors define those who get the seal or mark of God in their forehead versus those who get the mark of the beast? And what is God’s mark? Is it going to be a tattoo, barcode or microchip? I think most would agree that the seal of God is symbolic and is not literal and therefore stands to reason that the same symbology also applies to the mark of the beast since they are in competition to each other. You cannot get both as you either receive the mark of God or the mark of the Beast. See Revelation 7:3 and Revelation 9:4.


2 Peter 1:20 says, “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.”


Bearing in mind that the Bible has no reasonable reference to microchips or other technology, so this can only be considered as “private interpretation” and is neither allowed nor necessary. This would also be considered as adding to the book of Revelation, which also carries an extremely severe warning.

  

Revelation 22:18-19 “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.


Why do some think the Mark of the Beast is Technology?


The speculation that 666 or the mark of the beast is technology originated from error as those responsible did not even notice that 666 and the MARK are two separate symbols. Even today most still assume that 666 is the mark of the beast because they do not carefully read what the Bible does say.

  So when barcodes first appeared, some bright spark figured that those enforcing the mark were going to hide 666 in a barcode and so paranoia ensued. Of course this was based on incorrect knowledge of the Word anyway as 666 is NOT the mark! The technology theory has just snowballed from there and has continued to gain momentum over time. Further speculation comes from the following verse but where does this verse state in any way that it will be microchips or technology? As you can see, it does not.


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 13:17

         

 

Technology cannot be the Mark of the Beast


It was assumed that if one cannot buy or sell then it must be controlled by some form of technology, and while Satan could use this to play a deceptive part, it is not 666 or the mark of the beast.


Look at the above passage very closely. Note it says that you cannot buy or sell unless you have the MARK or the NAME or the NUMBER of his name. If the MARK was a computer chip and you did not have the MARK but you had the NAME or the NUMBER, you would still be able to buy and sell and yet you would not have the MARK. So what good would it be if the mark of the beast was technology? None whatsoever!

So we find that technology being the mark of the beast is not possible and also does not fit the context of any of the passages on the mark or the entire Bible. So that ends another unbiblical assumption just by careful exegesis on what the Bible does say. When it comes to the Bible, we should strive to be like the Berean Christians who read the Word of God daily to see if what they were told is true and follow the Bible alone, (Sola Scriptura). (Acts 17:11)

Note that the mark of the beast must be something that is a free will decision as one would not receive the full wrath of God for something that was forced upon you. Why would God pour out His most fiercest wrath upon you based on an implanted microchip anyway, which could be forced? Some claim because the mark of the beast is the mark of the devil but even if this were so, the free will issue remains the same. When we cover the origins of 666 later, you will be left with no doubts about it not being technology.

 

Is the Mark of the Beast from Satan?


A lot of the speculation comes from the actual phrase, “The Mark of the Beast.” What does one typically think of when they hear this phrase? The first thought of the majority is that it is something satanic and horrible and extremely sinister. Remember that God also has a mark, which is more commonly called the Seal of God but can also be called the Mark of God. (Revelation 7:3; 9:4 and Ezekiel 9:4, Deuteronomy 6:8 and 11:18-19, Exodus 13:9, Revelation 14:1-22:4), What do you think of when you hear the phrase “The Seal of God” or “The Mark of God?” Most instantly think that it must be symbolic as God does not use technology and of course this phrase does not sound sinister or horrific at all. Why not? If we can cast some light on what the phrase “the Mark of the Beast” actually means, you will find that your whole conception of the mark of the beast will change dramatically.


Is 666 the Devils Number?


Many believe that 666 is the devil’s number because when they envisage the phrase the “mark of the beast” they typically associate this phrase with Satan. The first thoughts that typically come to mind are something beastly and horrible like many envisage Satan’s appearance, but he was actually created a beautiful angel. The fact is the Bible consistently uses the term “Beast” to describe a kingdom just as many nations today have an animal or beast that represents their country.

   For example; Australia has the Kangaroo and America, the Bald Eagle. Daniel 7:4 says that “the first beast was like a lion” and all theologians agree that this beast represents Babylon. This lion found on the Ishtar gate from the ancient ruins of Babylon is one of many and is not by coincidence. God had reason for all the beasts He chose. Daniel chapter 7 describes not just one but four beasts coming out of the sea and the fourth is indeed very horrible in appearance but what does the angelic interpreter say these four beasts represent? I imagine the answer is probably fairly obvious by now.

Daniel 7:17 “These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.

And Daniel 7:23 speaking of Pagan Rome, “Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.

The following two verses reveal what God used to symbolically represent Satan and as you can see it is not the Beast but a dragon or serpent.

Revelation 12:9 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Revelation 20:2 “And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

Now note the following verse that identifies the beast and Satan as two separate entities and puts to rest the fallacy that the beast is Satan.

Revelation 20:10 “And THE DEVIL that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where THE BEAST and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

 

Who is the Beast that enforces the Mark?


So who is this beast (kingdom) that enforces the mark? The following are not just our thoughts or the thoughts of some particular denomination but truth that was discovered by many brilliant people several centuries ago. The identity of the beast was first discovered in 1517 by Martin Luther who was a Roman Catholic Priest.


He found that the beast is none other than the very Church he belonged to. Thus, what we are dealing with is not the mark of the devil but the mark of the beast, which more specifically is the mark of the Roman Catholic Church. What do you think of now when you hear the phrase, “The Mark of the Catholic Church?” Does it still sound sinister and horrific? Do you still think of technology? Would you agree that it now takes on a whole new meaning?

 

Many Famous People knew from reading their hidden Bible that the papacy is,  The Beast,  in Revelation Chapter 12. 

No one else fits so clearly described!


All these brilliant people knew that the Roman Catholic Papal Church is the little horn of Daniel 7, which is synonymous with the first beast of Revelation 13 that enforces 666 and the mark of the beast, and some of them died by the hand of the Roman Catholic Church. See also who is the antichrist. “John Wycliffe, William Tyndale (translated the Bible - Tyndale Bible), Martin Luther, John Calvin, Thomas Cranmer; in the seventeenth century, Bunyan, the translators of the KING JAMES BIBLE and the men who published the Westminster and Baptist confessions of Faith; Sir Isaac Newton, John Wesley, Whitfield, Jonathan Edwards; and more recently Spurgeon, Bishop J.C. Ryle and Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones; these men among countless others, all saw the office of the Papacy as the antichrist.” — All Roads Lead to Rome, by Michael de Semlyen. Dorchestor House Publications, p. 205. 1991.


More than fifty Popes have shown themselves to be atheists. The history of Popes records drunkenness, homosexuality, rape, murder, torture, adultery, incest, selling religious offices and much more. Many Popes have been labelled the most EVIL men in history. Here are some brief examples. Popes from 366-1045 AD, 1088-1492 AD and 1503-1958 AD. Here is the response given by the Catholic Church in regards to the reign of terror and bloodshed that evil Popes have done over the centuries. How could any man believe that we honour Christ with evil or obeying Satan or Satanic people?


So does the Catholic Church specialize in technology or enforcing computer chips? Not likely! And again, why would this make God so angry that He would pour out His full wrath upon you. This is our most merciful and forgiving God that sent His only Son to die for our sins. Clearly, there is more to this and why Jesus says those who receive the mark are DECEIVED. 


The Catholic Church have enforced many things by death over the centuries but it was never technology, it was ALWAYS their DOCTRINE, that was enforced by the death of millions. This is what the book of Revelation also reveals. 


Note the Roman Catholic Church's following quotes are some of their false Doctrines. 


The belief in the Bible as the sole source of faith is unhistorical, illogical, fatal to the virtue of faith, and destructive of unity.” — The Catholic Encyclopedia, Volume XIII, “Protestantism, Section III A - Sola Scriptura (“Bible Alone), Nihil Obstat, February 1, 1912 by Remy Lafort, D.D., Censor, Imprimatur. John Cardinal Farley, Archbishop of New York.

We confess that the Pope has power of changing Scripture and of adding to it, and taking from it, according to his will.” — Roman Catholic Confessions for Protestants Oath, Article XI, (Confessio Romano-Catholica in Hungaria Evangelicis publice praescripta te proposita, editi a Streitwolf), as recorded in Congressional Record of the U.S.A., House Bill 1523, Contested election case of Eugene C. Bonniwell, against Thos. S. Butler, Feb. 15, 1913. 


Read 1st Timothy 4:1-3


The Saviour Himself is the door of the sheepfold: ‘I am the door of the sheep.’ Into this fold of Jesus Christ, no man may enter unless he be led by the Sovereign Pontiff; and only if they be united to him can men be saved, for the Roman Pontiff is the Vicar of Christ and His personal representative on earth.” — Pope John XXIII in his homily to the Bishops and faithful assisting at his coronation on November 4, 1958.

Indeed, there is but one universal Church of the faithful outside of which no one at all is saved.” — Pope Innocent III, Fourth Lateran Council, 1215; Denz. 151.

He is a heretic who does not believe what the Roman Hierarchy teaches.” — The American Textbook of Popery, p 164 (quoting from the “Directory for the Inquisitors”).
