One of the reasons I became christian, was a woman in California named Anita Fuentes. I have long since spoken out against her as a false prophet, but I am reminded of the fact she did indeed “Open My Eyes”.
I was talking to another christian whom started their walk in Christ from a very different angle. The United Church of Christ. This person today rejects every thing about this superficial universalist dribble, for many of similar reasons I rejected Anita Fuentes….
We learned better and We grew up.
We started with these people because at the time we needed them. We really didnt know anything, we thought we did and was willing to learn more. As we learned to read the bible for ourselves, as we saw certain inconsistencies, as we learned, we also learned better.
I guarantee that this will happen to all of you. If it doesn’t happen, then you are not growing at all.
So what I think I’m saying is, even bad doctrine can be a stepping stone – but it’s only just that, a stepping stone.
With that in mind…
I was looking over my blog, and some things I wrote about years ago. I realized there’s some things I use to believe that, I don’t really disagree with anymore I just have a more advanced understanding of it now… So perhaps I should delete it right?
Well, I won’t. The reason is, just because I’ve learned better doesn’t mean someone else hasn’t. My own blog and my own word is not scripture – it’s evangelism… It’s me talking to the internet. I myself am no exception to this rule. Someone can always just be using me as a stepping stone, and one day grow up themselves.
The only thing that matters is, salvation is in Christ alone through faith alone. This fact is evident in scripture alone. If anyone says something different, they are just blatantly lieing to you. I have on my blog never said anything different, and I never will on that point.
There is a curious something strange buzzing around the internet lately, that is an assertion Paul the apostle was a false prophet. As minuet as this movement is, it has gained some traction in recent years, therefore worth while to address.
The entire premise of the argument comes from when Jesus said:
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Matthew 5:18
Yet we see Paul later writing:
The Righteous Shall Live by Faith For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.” – Galations 3:10
The argument is Paul directly contradicts Christ, and as Christians we are to uphold the law… The law in question being the Old Testament laws in the Torah; Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. However this is why context matters. Again we see Christ talking about the law just before he is put up on the the cross:
Luke 24:44 Then he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.”
The operative word here is ‘fulfilled’. The law, the prophets, and the Psalms all predict Christ and his life. Christ fulfilled his purpose when he resurrected…. In the text we see Jesus speaking in present tense, nothing changes until after the prophecy about him is done.. Which means the people of Judea that he is speaking to were under the law until Christ died, after that happened the new law was established where as we may come to God by grace. Paul is writing after the fact, and all he is doing is clarifying what Jesus himself said so it is in no uncertain terms.
“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination – Leviticus 18: 22”
Being one of the most controversial laws in modern times – One might ask can gay people be Christian given what the law says. The answer is of course they can, because the law is fulfilled. Besides the fact it’s not even about gay people anyway. Look at this verse for the way it’s worded, “a man as with a woman” – the law itself is talking about closing a potential loop hole in adultery… say you are married to woman, does it mean it’s ok to cheat on your wife with a man? Leviticus 18, the whole chapter, is detailing specifically all the ways that define adultery, this verse just being one way of about 30 others. While I’m sure many would disagree with my assertion, bear in mind I actually read the KJV for its context and use of grammar, and ignore pastors and theologians. Again context matters, even if the law is fulfilled anyway.
The reason I bring this law up is to illustrate my next point in no uncertain terms to the correct audience.
Many Enemies of Paul
I was reading a book written in 1536 called “Commentary on the Book of Galatians” – by protestant reformer Martin Luther. He said something in the preface that was very interesting, which seems to be as true now as it was in the 1500s. That is, The book of Galatians is one of the most important books in the Bible next only to the story of Christ- as those who are enemies of Jesus will almost certainly argue against this text more then any other book in the Bible. I have tested this point and it is true that you can quote any book in the Bible to a legalist or say an “interfaith” type and they will receive it gladly – but if you quote or even mention Galatians for any reason, suddenly they will tear your head off. (Particularly Galations 3:10-14). I challenge you to test it for yourself if you think Martin or I am kidding.
The reason is, the entire book is about why the law is fulfilled, and Paul explains why the law never mattered anyway – but salvation always came from faith and service to the one true God. Often he pointed to Abraham as an example of one who found favor from God well before Moses was even born to write down the laws – yet we know for a fact Abraham was a righteous man whom made his way to God’s kingdom, never himself following any particular law rather faith alone. Further, Paul asserted Jesus being the only true God’s terms for grace, it is only through him do we find salvation, under the new testament. What this means is Christianity is a religion based on the faith/assumption the only true God sent Jesus so we may go to heaven. We are not a religion based on works or trying to be perfect people- or follow a specific code of conduct. It is rather that works come from the spirit which Christ puts into us when we are saved – which is a very important difference, many find hard to understand. Simply put, you can not legislate love, it comes from the spirit, if one is truly of the spirit.
A great deal of this idea Paul was a false prophet comes to us from a surprising source – Muslims. Yet it’s plain to see legalistic Christians are all to glad to share in the spread of the idea…. Until they find out it’s Muslims who are behind its origin and primary support… What it amounts to is something we expect in our modern times, that is spiritual warfare. The church is constantly hit by propaganda from all directions, even from within itself.
It is worth noting the difference between Christians and Muslims. For starters, Jesus is a minor prophet to them – in fact he means virtually nothing at all. They will only mention him when talking to Christians, but in practice or within their own private circles he’s entirely none existent. However, they also do not preach salvation is through Mohammad either. The core of their doctrine is salvation comes by works of the law of the Moses. Where the Christian says ‘Faith is enough’ the Muslim says ‘Faith is useless by itself to satisfy the law’. So we can see why legalist and Muslims have a lot in common already. Equally, Islam does not recognize Paul at all. The contention they present that Paul is a false prophet, is the assumption Islam is the correct religion and Christians have been deceived away from the law. Now I could go into the Gnostic movement as to what’s wrong with the Muslim religion from its origin and why it differs from christianity, however for our purposes here – it is too much. The summary of it all amounting to, you are either Christian saved by Christ through the faith that he is our redeemer ordained by the only true God, or you are not. If you are not then you are not Christian, period. It is that simple, least anyone preach to you another gospel. This is the fundamental reason why Islam and Christianity are incompatible, and why Paul has always been a controversial figure even among Christian circles.
I keep hearing the media tell me trump is a christian, or for the matter a GOP candidate needs to win over “Evangelical Christians”.
Now I have come to peace with the fact the media is loaded up atheists who often don’t know what their talking about with Christianity. I should think they would at least know “Baptist” make up the majority of the American church, but they don’t so I suppose to them – “Evangelical” means Republican Christians… They aren’t, but whatever. My favorite part is when they cite scripture, and frankly when they do they look ridiculous. When they say “Trump is supported by ‘real’ christians”- again it’s just as rediculous. I’m really not sure which is worse, Donald Trump himself or the journalist saying he’s a strong christian candidate .
And then there’s Donald Trump… he’s as much a christian as Nebuchadnezzar was Jewish, and I mean that in every sense of the word. Trumps ego is only rivaled to that of Nimrod, whom;
“Puts his throne next to the most high god”
When asked by Frank Luntz:
“Have you ever asked God for forgiveness”
The most basic, most simplistic question anyone could ask a christian… and his response is;
“That’s a hard question”
Followed by a long tangent to dodge the question. Followed by being asked the question again to which he responds;
“I don’t believe I need to ask God for forgiveness, I try to just be myself and be a good person and then I move on”
If anyone should be a christian this is an absurd answer. No, your not supposed to be a perfect person, it’s impossible and it’s the whole reason we have Jesus. No one goes to the father but by Christ and asking for forgiveness of sins. I’ve written about this before if there’s any confusion to the reader when I say it’s like a contract with God. Donald Trump should understand contracts perfectly, but anyway, I’ll just post a link to that article. Click Here if Interested
And here would be the video link to this exchange, click here
Next were told by Trump he only goes to church on Christmas and Easter… which ok, I could understand since he is a public figure. He doesn’t want a bombardment of people swarming him on Sundays… I get it. He continues to tell us he meets with religious leaders in private and his faith is very personal… Ok sure I could understand this… Except his great christian leader Norman Vincent was a heretic, like Joel Osteen, were talking about the prosperity gospel scam. Anyone can go to heaven if they buy there way there… Which need I say more?
If I do, your not a christian and I’m sorry I wasted your time.
Then let’s get back to Nebuchadnezzar… When ever I watch a trump speech (and I’ve watched plenty of them) 30 minutes of it starts with him talking about himself. Then there’s maybe 5 mins or less where he brings up his wall policy. Finally there’s another 30 minute tangent about how great he is along with insults of other GOP candidates…. if this were just one or 2 speeches I could excuse it, but this is the entire political campaign he presents! For a total of one year Trump has talked about virtually nothing BUT himself. He is Infact the only person I ever heard of who is so full of himself, he literally can go on a year long tangent about himself. If elected president, we will sit here for 4 years of a never ending Trump rally. Now ask yourself 2 questions:
1. Can you honestly see yourself dealing with that?
2. Do you honestly think he is a humble servant of the lord?
In the bible people like Nimrod, Nebuchadnezzar, Pharaoh, Julius Cesar were the bad guys actually. Historically and biblically they had one thing in common. They were beyond narcissists they were Megalomaniacs. Do you honestly want to vote for the guy who would say;
“I will put my throne with the most high god”.
Better yet, how much can any christian really be convinced he “Cares about America”?
Let me clarify this a better way so there’s no confusion:
From the Oxford dictionary
a person who is obsessed with their own power.
a person who suffers delusions of their own power or importance. Characteristically successful or well established people that are obsessed with themselves and unrelenting ambition for more power then what they already have.
Trump cares about Trump plain and simple. He’s a spoiled, selfish, narcissistic jerk who would sell any of his supporters for a cufflink to match his suit… We the people are expendable and a dime a dozen at least according to the latest poll.
Oh sure, god could use trump, but honestly why should he bother? I’ve sat down with enough of trump supporters to listen to their strange views on Christianity.
1. Interfaith beliefs. Among Trumps fans they often group Christians together with Buddhists and Atheists even Muslims. They seem to think Jesus and the Dali Lama are basically the same thing. If I have to explain to you why they are not we have a problem…
2. God can’t fight the illuminati so we might as well go along with it. When a group of people told me this I wanted to slap them – I really did. I dont know where to begin. Needless to say the many trump supporters who actually believe this are telling me, they will be the people who would hand the world over to the Antichrist in the book of Revelation…. when the Antichrist is in the process of taking over the world the bible tells us this is what the masses say:
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” – Revelation 13:4
Now I’m not saying Trump is the Antichrist, because he isn’t… I’m just saying if your saying this, the bible mentions a good many people like yourself willingly giving yourself over to the Antichrist. Clearly you can’t even pass a sample of the Antichrist if this is what your saying.
As a christian who ends up in heaven in that book, your supposed to be the opposition… not the apathetic “go along with the program”.
Besides any of this, even if your 40 years old, Please review Veggie Tales first episode “Where’s God When I’m Scared”. There’s a song called “God is bigger then the boogie man” I think you could learn alot from it, and it may be more to your level of understanding.
3. Wrathful Theology. As explained to me by a number of trump supporters Black people can not go to heaven. Ok, ummm with the risk of sounding liberal, that’s just racist. Oh but it goes on…
Then I’m told more or less we go to heaven by our works by some redneck who puts Archie Bunker to shame in bigotry. “Fags this, Niggers that, Mexicans blah blah blah are not good enough for god and they break his commandment in such and such ways.”
Your so freaking perfect aren’t you?
If this is in line with your theology
Please review John 3:16… better yet please review the Book of Galatians. Your the type who makes Jesus look like a jerk and wonders why there’s so many people who don’t like him or Christians…. what’s worse, you don’t even know what your talking about when you tell me “God is Wrathful”.
4. We don’t need a pastor we need a president. Yes I would agree with you except Trump isn’t a president either… he’s a slimy crony capitalist according to his own admission. He’s not even conservative by his own admission… your telling me were going to fix Washington with a guy that bought off every politician… yet in all the years of him doing so we haven’t found a single good thing to say about our politicians?
That’s just about the most ridiculous thing I ever heard in my life. Your want to fix crony capitalism with one of the biggest crony capitalist out there.
Your must have lost your mind if you honestly believe any of this nonsense in this little circus Trump is pulling.
No its not just the media that doesn’t like him, it’s everyone with common sense who doesn’t like him… besides that haven’t you noticed how much the media loves him now? Especially after they found out he was all for Obama’s bank bail outs…. so yeah Trump isn’t a pastor, but he’s Niether a president, he’s a jerk and he’s playing you like a fool.
5. Jesus will save America from Obama with Trump. How does anyone even figure this? Obama isn’t even running besides Hillary Clintons poll numbers are so low she’s beat by the GOPs second place candidate Ted Cruz… On top of that no one is even watching the Democrat debates, so what that should tell you is no matter who The republican candidate is this is clearly a red election cycle… guaranteed. There isn’t any competition. You have a large array of candidates to choose from and the one your going with is Donald Trump?
1 Samuel chapter 8 talks about how the Israelites did not want judges speaking for god as their ruler, they wanted a King so they can be like the other nations. The Prophet Samuel told god what the people said and gods response:
“And the Lord said to Samuel, “Obey the voice of the people in all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected me from being king over them. According to all the deeds that they have done, from the day I brought them up out of Egypt even to this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are also doing to you. Now then, obey their voice; only you shall solemnly warn them and show them the ways of the king who shall reign over them.” 1 Samuel 8: 7-9
As the bible continues Samuel does what god tells him and he goes on to the people warning them:
These will be the ways of the king who will reign over you: he will take your sons and appoint them to his chariots and to be his horsemen and to run before his chariots. And he will appoint for himself commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and some to plow his ground and to reap his harvest, and to make his implements of war and the equipment of his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers” 1 Samuel 8: 11-13
Now Samuels warning goes on and on about how the king will take their property, and establish what sounds like a dictatorship and forced labor camps. The people however are completely unconcerned by his warning. They are people who reject god and are convinced having a king is better then the democracy they already have. And so God gives them exactly what they wanted. King Saul the first king of Israel and a very nasty person and a tyrant. After Saul was king David, and sure he was considered a good king, but as the rest of the bible goes on we see the kings become more and more corrupt and the people become even more distant from God so much so they become Bale worshippers.
The point I’m making is more often then not God judges a nation based on the wishes of the people. You already know America has turned its back on God. Here I’m told you are given the choice on how to fix this country and you choose the man that’s the least godly and most authoritarian of any guaranteed candidate… all this while telling me “He’s America’s Salvation”. Don’t even… He is an example of God handing people over to their own unrighteousness and their own desires. So please, do not confuse Trump as “Salvation” because he is indeed “Judgement”. He is giving exactly what “We the people” want, don’t blame him later when Trump destroys the country.
Needless to say, I’m taking notes and making a list. Anyone who comes out saying they support Donald Trump has lost all credibility as a christian to me. Any pastor who praises Trump I will not consider a credible pastor as he obviously leads his flock astray. I will not be accepting not one moment of theological study or ounce of bible discussion with anyone who is a Trump supporter. I’m sorry, you simply have the weakest foundation in Christ and Donald Trump is the mark that simply identifies you. It’s not just your religious views it’s also your poor taste in politics and ability to think for yourself. There is no descrenment among trump supporters, even when it’s staring them in the face. This whole thing with Trump is a crazy train to a circus, and your telling me your jumping on board. Such which is dangerous and is exactly what is doing more damage to the country then anything Obama has done.
Don’t you dare make excuses for Trumps Christianity, there is no excuse. Even demons and Devils acknowledge god, even Nebuchadnezzar acknowledged god… If all you can tell me is he acknowledges God, that is so weak. Christians it’s time to be awake and your sleeping don’t be like this.
So I’ve just reached my 666 th view here on the blog. What better reason to discuss the Mark of The Beast!!! Silly reason I know, but its just as good an excuse as any reason so here we go.
What is the mark of the beast? Revelation gives us 5 distinct clues: Revelation 13:16-18
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 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. 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.
Everyone will be required to have it. it will be forced on us.
It has something to do with money.
It goes on the right hand or forehead. (perhaps its optional where you put it)
It will be some kind of mark or label to it.
666 will have something to do with the man issuing it out.
There is a little bit more the bible tells us later about this mark.
(Rev. 14: 9) God will declare judgement on all who take the mark
(Rev 16: 2) An angel will pour out a bowl and all who received the mark get festering sores.
In all this there is the constant reference to ‘Those who receive the mark, AND worshiped the image of the beast’. By Revelation 20: 4 Those who didnt have the mark went to heaven, those who did went to hell.
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
Heres the scary thing, all this actually sounds very possible- I know many are convinced we are coming to this time. Something that is such a blessing about this prophecy is the way it’s worded to us. God makes certain things in revelation somewhat vague as if to say he wants this to ‘Run its Course’ without anyone being able to interfere ahead of time. At the same time, he gives us a very clear set of criteria to look for, when the time comes so we as believers can avoid his wrath and judgement.
There isn’t much ‘symbolism’ with the mark of the beast at all, while 666 might seem important, it really isn’t. How obvious should it be to you the day its announced “You have to take this thing in your hand or forehead to buy or sell anything. If you don’t you will be killed” my guess here is the first 4 things should spell this out to you perfectly, that thing they want you to take IS the mark of the beast. Since when has humanity ever required such a curious mark under such harsh terms? How dumb do you have to be not to connect the dots when this obvious event will occur?
If we look at the way the verse mentions 666
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.
To me this sounds like an optional thing about it to look for- as the man wont be very well known (or apparent) to most people. That says alot in itself actually, it tells me the Beast of the Sea will be operating behind closed doors- he may not even be in the public spotlight- indeed this is constant with how Satan and his agents have always worked. Lets pick the Beast of the Sea apart. Revelation 13:1-10
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 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. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
Now we see the beast of the Earth: Revelation 13: 11-13
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
Wow what a mouthful right, but again we see some very distinct clues that qualifies someone to be a Beast of the Sea:
He will be very blasphemous
Satan will give him power (the dragon is satan)
There will be a wound on his head, very badly but now its healed
People will worship Satan and praise his creation of the beast. (Whats funny is the way they worship the beast. they ask; “Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” as if they are worshiping him out of fear).
he will reign 42 months and blaspheme God the whole time.
There is a tabernacle (there has only been 2 tabernacles, suggesting a third one is coming or perhaps another kind of reference to the Bible or Gods house)
He will kill Christians possibly Jews, yet here the bible tells us don’t worry God will deal with him.
Beast of the Earth
The beast of the Earth will come and also have the great power of Satan,
This beast will tell everyone to worship the Beast of the Sea. (it sounds a bit like tag team and reenforcing the first beast).
There will be some kind of Image, like fire from the sky. It will Speak, it will have life (probably animated) and everyone has to worship him.
Both Beasts will control the world
See what I am saying earlier about working behind the scenes. The beast of the sea is somewhere in the background, while the other beast is doing all the work. There is always the blue collar guy isn’t there . Also there is a specific time frame laid out 42 months is 3.5 years. in the Jewish calender (which this could be based on) has 11 months to a year, bringing it not far off to 3.8 years. We also know there are plans in Israel laid out already to build the third temple. There are places like The Temple Institute who boast to already have the construction materials, cloths and props, and blueprints set aside- all they need is the Israeli government approval to tear down the Dome of the Rock and rebuild. That day may very well come lets say if Israel wasn’t in a 2 state solution. (That should be your first and obvious red flag, when Israel no longer tolerates Muslims, OR when Muslims tell the Jews the site belongs to them, not Allah- Either case will come as a very big deal and very well known world headlines).
Yet I find myself questioning the possibility if it is a reference to earlier temples, aka The Bible- specifically the old testament. Or perhaps a metaphor for the church, since the tabernacle was the house of God- now we have Churches. Both theories could be supported by the beast obvious animosity towards Christians, we could even speculate the Vatican is the new testament version of the tabernacle. Puzzling, but I know my God doesn’t like convoluted metaphors, or double speak- Truley i’m sold on something more literal, at best were talking about past temples in the Bible not the Vatican. Preferably, I want to see a third temple in place for conviction.
Of all the silly people to accuse as the antichrist the current Idea is Obama. The president or Prime Minister I admit is a good start but keep in mind;
First Obama has reigned for more then 3.5-3.8 years (Yes people are that stupid to let this happen). Second, Obama hasn’t had any debilitating head injuries. Third, He can be pretty blasphemous, but if he were killing Christians it would be noticeable. Fourth, you could say he is A antichrist but he isnt THE antichrist- which is why I say we need to get into the habit of calling this what the bible calls it “Beast of the Sea”. The Bibles definition of ‘Anti-Christ’ is broad and general, basically anyone who denies Jesus is a antichrist (1 John 2:22). And it says many will come and has always come(1 John 2:18). The only book in the bible that even mentions the word ‘Antichrist’ is in John. None of the sequence of events here match Obama’s presidency, or Clinton, or Kennedy, or the Prime minister of England. It seems they are just bad leaders, who need gods gift of wisdom. And a nation to think before they vote [Coughs] or atleast pray their leaders will come to christ in huge public displays [coughs again]. (Though I wasn’t alive then I kinda like Kennedy :-p).
What I am saying is we need more credibility in who we pin the title of this on. It isn’t good enough to pick any random bad leader, there is a specific set of criteria laid out, and at least give the man a chance to be born first. Who ever that might be. Conspiracy theory based on lies only makes you and the bible look like an idiot.
666 is Bismillah
So here is an interesting theory I came across, many dont know it originated from Walid Shoebat. The mark of the beast is Bismillah which means Praise Allah. There are some obvious holes with this that is worth pointing out. Number 1 he did not actually use the oldest Greek Bible in the world (as he originally claimed). The oldest Greek Bible in the world (for those who follow my blog know) Is Codex Sinaiticus. It comes to us from the 4th century and is available online via photograph- unedited or censored, never touched by evil Catholics wanting to cover up secrets in the bible. Praise be to God!! (I have to say it because of so much conspiracy theorists need to know, the bible doesn’t rely on the Vatican keeping all the records)
Getting back to the point. Shoebat tells us “Six hundred threescore and six” spells in Greek the same thing as the Arab word for Bismillah. As Illustrated below.
This is true, all we have to do is rotate the middle letter and we seem to have a match. Here is the problem, When we turn to Codex Sinaiticus. Revelation 13: 18 where the verse in question is referenced we see “εϲτιν εξακοϲιαι εξηκο” This translated to English means “Six Hundred three score Six” what you see in the image to the left comes 200 years later from the unknown texts Shoebat provides (he never tells us the manuscript he used). The Greeks began writing things with a different dialect by then- Simply so “Six hundred three score six” becomes “Six hundred Sixty Six”. At the same time this doesn’t seem to come from any ancient clergy texts or copies of the bible. If John wrote down what he saw in the vision- and interpreted into Greek, which is what he understood (And what shoebat tells us), Since were all using original sources, Why does the oldest Bible record it as εϲτιν εξακοϲιαι εξηκο? Not to mention the dialect change on a random unknown document that is 200 years younger?
What all this means I’m not entirely sold all of this is centered around Islam. Which coincidentally Shoebats ministry seems to focus on nothing else. (yes we can talk about biased opinions also false teachers). Truly the mark of the beast has nothing to do with Bismillah. Also what does this have to do with money and transactions? The Greek and Arabic looking alike, is a good thought, but language is fickle- And its known the Ottomans took Byzantine empire (Greece) around this time, so its easy to see where the dialect could have been borrowed. Finally, I will also give this credit on Muslims forcing us to wear head and arm bands or be beheaded in worship to Allah. This sounds like something a terrorist group will do, but it just has too shaky of a foundation.
Everyone will be required to have it. it will be forced on us.
It has something to do with money.
It goes on the right hand or forehead. (perhaps its optional where you put it)
It will be some kind of mark or label to it.
666 will have something to do with the man issuing it out.
I copied our criteria earlier here, because truth be told this holds the best scrutiny that I’ve heard of. Lets say the Illuminati take over the world. They want a full scale technocratic society and EVERYONE has to have a microchip in their hand. The chip is used for money, you can pay by swiping your hand at the store register credit card machine, Or say pay by shaking hands. Maybe you had your hands blown off, Maybe your hands are paralyzed, maybe you don’t want it in your hand (Asian cultures make deals by Bowing, India has a thing for marks on their forehead for all kinds of reasons). What ever reason that chip doesn’t go in the hand you can put it in your forehead. Ok this meets the criteria 1-4, the problem with #5 is dominantly its believed by this theory Bar codes have 666 in them. Since RFID tech relies on bar codes to work, well its basic logic where they get this. However, this is not a number of a man its a number of a thing. A good deal many things and people at this point- the bible is describing the man as Singular. Fortunately this is pretty expendable to the model. It’s plain to see by prophecy, only when the time comes we will know who the Beast of the Sea is, and what 666 has to do with him.
RFID chips by all means still match the criteria perfectly. What a scary thought Vets offer it now to our pets. I for one will not subject my Cat or Dog to Gods wrath by getting them chipped. I don’t know if they go to heaven but im not willing to gamble their souls. It’s easy enough to keep the door closed so the cats don’t get loose, and keep the fence gate shut so the dogs can poop and not go to far from the back door. The thing is it starts with experiments on animals, next Senior Citizens (already in the works), then dare I say YOU.
So what I get from this digression is when ever it is announced I am required to take something in my hand that lets me make payments the answer is NO!! I wont do it for my cats and dogs, I definitely wont do it for myself. As a christian when the time comes I will shout it out in the streets “DO NOT TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST ITS_______”!!! I am sure I will soon be met with my head getting cut off. AND I will gladly make it easy for them to do it. Without Christ in this world, its a miserable place to live. Plus the unrighteous will make it a point to turn the whole thing into barbaric hell hole. Frankly, I’m not interested in seeing Gods wrath on a first hand account. My faith in Jesus can not be so easily shaken I cant simply stick with good old fashioned cash or trade goods. The real thing you need to decide is, are you willing to do the same?
