Different Strokes For Different Folks
This story is similar to the story about those who are given the mark without their approval, only
this story will address those who use some PRELIMINARY form of the mark. For example, the
National ID card has been talked about for quite some time now. This is a clear step toward the
system of antichrist. While this is NOT the mark of the beast, it is another clear baby step in that
direction. Some will say years later (after some early form of the system is widely embraced – e.g.,
credit cards), “It’s too late for you because you’ve already been using the system – an early form of
the mark – for years.” Actually, some have already been saying just this for years (e.g., 2006) given
present-day manifestations of the one-world monetary system.
Our response: DON’T BELIEVE THIS OPINION. Instead, be biblically skeptical, even about what
Bible Answer Men suggest. The worship of the beast in Revelation 13 is included in the reception
of the “mark.” Using a preliminary form of the monetary system is NOT receiving the mark! But, the
day will come when the other prophetic details – those clearly marking the general time or setting
of the system of antichrist – will be clear to those who know the Word. It’s at that time when the
“mark” of the satanic system cannot, indeed must not, be taken. All that to say: Keep reading the
Word for insight second to none on all matters under the sun, including touching upon cultural
matters bearing great consequences for each member of humanity.
The Wilson family had been using the National ID card for years but it had come to the place where
they had a decision to make. Here’s the scoop.
Don was fine with taking the next step in this migration to a one-world-alliance-beyond-war by
showing allegiance to the established leaders who were now asking the members of planet
earth to take one more step in order to instate the global federation. Don turned to his daughter,
Rachel, and said, “As we’ve discussed before, all they’re asking is that we transfer this card to
our person – this high-tech tattoo – either on our right hands or foreheads. What’s the problem
with that? After all, it’s an invisible* mark and, [in a tone of clear sarcasm] surely won’t have any
adverse effect on your beautiful appearance.”
Rachel, with tears in her eyes, whispered in response, “Dad, I can’t.” “What do you mean, you can’t?”
Don barked back. “I can’t take this next step because the Bible clearly tells us we can’t. If you’re sin-
cerely what you say you are – a Christian – then, dad, you can’t take this mark either.”
“OUT OF MY HOUSE, NOW! We’ve talked about this long enough! Actually, it’s too late for all of
us – you included – because we’ve all be using this mark for years. This on-our-person mark is
simply the next evolutionary step toward a united planet where we no longer have to worry about
war, terrorism, identity theft, etc. Why can’t you see this Rachel!?”
Without a verbal counter, Rachel and her older brother, Thomas, prepared to leave. Misty, Don’s
wife and step-mother to Rachel and Tom, was crying as they packed a few belongings before head-
ing out the door. “We love you mom,” Rachel told Misty. “I love you too, and I do see why you’re
both firm in your decision to reject this mark.” “Then why aren’t you coming too?” Tom asked softly.
“I … I just can’t. I’m committed to your father” was Misty’s reply. “You …” Don interrupted Rachel
before she could finish, pointed outside, and said, “I’m not going to tell you again!” The anger on
his face prompted immediate response.
With that, Tom and Rachel left, giving up a comfortable home with many amenities, only to find the
rest of their lives, as brief as they were, suffering great hardship and pain. But it didn’t linger on
Shortly thereafter Jesus Christ returned and escorted them to a glorious new home, only to find a
thousand years later that they were moving one last time – into the New Jerusalem where their Lord
Jesus had made a place for them. Tony and April (Tom’s and Rachel’s younger brother and sister)
and Misty and Don, on the other hand, found their day of accounting to be horrific beyond description.
After answering the LORD’s question concerning why they had taken the mark and noting their names
were not in the Lamb’s Book of Life, He then went on to point to their eternal home outside … the Lake
* The mark of the beast may or may not be invisible, we do not have those specific details. What we
do know are the facts revealed in God’s Word, the Bible and that they provide sufficient insight to
guide those who care about certain end time events which affect one’s eternal state. So go ahead,
take a risk, make a wise move and begin reading this Book which unveils the final chapter of
humanity before the thousand-year reign of Jesus Christ.
The eternal state of the disobedient members of the Wilson family cannot be adequately described.
Jesus Christ brought an early introductory description when He revealed, through an angel, “If anyone
worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself
shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His
indignation. 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 ascends forever and ever; and they have
no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his
name. Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God
and the faith of Jesus.” (Rev. 14:9-12; NKJV)
Please understand, those who yield and take the soon-coming mark of the beast will not stand in
the judgment. God’s Word clearly warns: Those who take the mark will be thrown into the Lake of
Fire where they will spend eternity in separation from God. (Revelation 13 & 14) It’s NOT WORTH
the compromise, even though the penalty from the world for refusing to take the mark will be heavy.
But it’s so temporary if we maintain God’s True perspective – especially in light of eternity being
what it actually is: A very long, never-ending time!
The mark of the beast is being preceded by early manifestations of the mark. These early stages
are not the “mark.” Do not heed the false teachings of those who say, “It’s too late for you because
you’ve been wearing the mark and have been in the system for years.” The “mark” is the act of
receiving a literal mark on the right hand or forehead and takes place in the context of other clear
indicators. Those who will bring this charge (e.g., the accusation that one bears the mark by using
early manifestations of the mark – like the National ID card) are deceivers bearing eternally conse-
quential instruction. The mark of the beast is not implemented until other events of Revelation 13
also begin taking place. It’s at this time when we must not take the next step and receive the mark.
It’s a good time to reread, carefully, the details of the Book of Revelation. Once again, what a day in
which to be living for Jesus Christ! Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus.
