“In the last days…” These words seemed so far away from us just a few months ago. Today, we are watching a demonstration of how the Mark of the Beast will be implemented. We once wondered how people would accept the “mark” of the beast. Yet today the path is clear: It will be “for our own good and for the good of others.”
Mass consciousness simply means that the greater majority of people believe in a particular thought. The result of this “thought” is more than just a coercive nudge by the majority. It is a demand to submit to the “thought.” When the majority rules or makes demands, the republic ceases to exist. Perhaps the last great barrier between the antichrist and religious freedom has been crossed. As Christianity becomes more diluted, the pathway to a One World Church is clear.
The times have rapidly changed thus fulfilling the Word. Dan 2:21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: This shift in times is melding the world, which will in turn usher in the antichrist, 2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 2 Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
Think of it! Born Again believers will fall away! People will backslide and walk away from truth. They will abandon what was first delivered to the saints! Then the antichrist will rise and rule the world. He will demand obedience: Revelation 13:17 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.
Instead of reaching for the lost and serving in the church, there are groups of people entangled with emotional pursuits and career ambitions. There is a host of trivial conversations taking place which lead us away from our purpose of teaching the Gospel! It’s akin to a group of people standing on the deck of the sinking Titanic complaining about the food. We are at the end. It’s time to put away menial endeavors and become focused on prayer, praise, worship, giving, and Bible study. The Kingdom is all that matters!
