danger11I disagree with John MacArthur’s view on people being able to repent and be saved after taking the mark of the beast in the tribulation.

The Bible talks about the seal of God Ezekiel 9; Rev. 7:3, 9:4. It teaches that the seal of God is irremovable. You will also see the example of Exodus 12 with the Mark of the blood on the door posts. Those people were protected. Those people who did not have it were not protected.

I guess it’s worth the word study on the idea of the seal since we all are sealed unto the day of redemption by the Holy Spirit who know Christ as Savior. (Eph. 4:30).

The whole point of this is that “God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2 Thess. 2:12)

That mark of the beast is a terrible and awful thing. it is a sign of judgment from God. It is not just mainly a satanic thing. It is a sentence upon the people that are described in the book of Revelation are those who refuse to “receive love for the truth” and thus taking the Mark of the Beast in their rebellion. They are also described as being coerced as it says in Revelation 13:16 that he forces them to take it as a sign and pledge of their worship of the beast.

Anyone who does not take it is killed. It is better to be killed then take the Mark of the Beast. It also will be part of the testimony of the tribulation believers, “…And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.” (Rev. 20:4).

You will notice the wording given in the book of Revelation concerning the people who take it, “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” (Rev 13:8).

They are under a spirit of irreversible delusion, “With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.” (Rev 19:20).

The kicker is found in Revelation 14:9-12. “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.”

WE CONCLUDE that anyone who takes the Mark of this satanic animal, the BEAST is damned irreversibly.
