Why Refuse the Mark?
Many people will take the mark of the beast. Some will do so willingly to show their allegiance to the beast, while others will take the mark out of a feeling of necessity; after all, it will be impossible to buy or sell without the mark. Many will say, “I have to take the mark, or else I will die.” The Lord Jesus Christ tells us that there we must deny ourselves if we are to follow him. He also tells us that there are some who will think that they are saving their lives, but they will lose their lives.
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For whatis a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matthew 16:24--26)
In the not-too-distant future, no one will be able to buy food, shelter, clothing, or any other necessity without receiving the mark of the beast 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. (Revelation 13:16--18)
There are however, many places in God’s Word that warn us that there are terrible consequences for taking the mark. These include facing God’s wrath for all eternity.
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 the 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 whosever receiveth the mark of his name. (Revelation 19:9--11)
Those who reject God’s mercy that has come to us in Jesus Christ will face the wrath of God. Those who reject Jesus Christ during the reign of the Beast will be deceived and receive the mark of the beast. If a person receives the mark of the beast, they will face the full “wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture.” The phrase “without mixture” means undiluted or full strength.
Before the final judgment, the wrath of God will be poured out upon all who receive the mark of the Beast while they are still here upon the Earth.
And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. And the first went, and poured his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image. (Revelation 16:1--2)
I don’t know the medical cause of the “noisome and grievous sore” that will come upon all those who receive the mark of the beast, but I wonder if the sores could be the result of the almost constant exposure to radio frequency energy once the cashless/RFID system is put in place? Scanners will be almost everywhere, businesses, hospitals, airports, homes, all government buildings, and who knows where else? Every time a person is near a scanner, radio frequency radiation will penetrate their body, and if they have an implanted chip, a small amount of that energy will be reflected back through their flesh to be picked up by the scanner. The energy that is reflected by an RFID chip contains not only the primary frequency that it received from the scanner, but also harmonics, or multiples, of that frequency. What effect will the energy that is reflected by the implanted chip have upon the human body?
Could this almost constant exposure to radio frequency radiation cause cancer or some other kind of sore that will be the “noisome and grievous” sore mentioned in Revelation Chapter 16?
