As time permits, we will answer questions presented to us.
QUESTION: Is the Covid vaccine the Mark of the Beast?
The following comment and question came from a visitor in a Middle Eastern country. Some people are afraid to get the Covid vaccine because fearful it is the Mark of the Beast. Is it the Mark of the Beast?
The short answer is No it is NOT the Mark of the Beast.
What is known as the Mark of the Beast is spoken of in the thirteen chapter of the Book of Revelations. When it comes no one can buy or sell without having the Mark of the Beast in their hand or on their forehead attesting to their commitment to worship the Beast. Therefore, the Mark of the Beast is a religious issue enforced by governing powers and the Covid vaccine is simple a none religious issue. However, it may well be a conditioning factor to prepare the masses to submit to draconian conditions.
This will occur during what many bible scholars will be a seven year period of time when Satan will have complete control of the earth. Some people believe that Christians will be here and have to deal with this time and other do not believe that but believe the church shall have been raptured out in advance, which what I believe; however, saints are mentioned being here and waring with the beast which may be the 144,000 mentioned in the fourteenth chapter of Revelation.
Several scriptures are relevant to understand the schools of thought regarding this subject. First, Christ said, "But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." Matt. 24:37
"And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them, and behold I will destroy them with the earth." Gen. 6:13
Christ also said, "And knew not until the flood came and took them all away, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." Matt. 24:39
Christ having mentioned twice that this coming would be liken to the days of Noah and the flood and the saving of Noah and his family from the destruction of the flood is very strong evidence that the Christians will be spared the tribulation period detailed beginning with the fourth chapter of Revelation. Several events shall occur before the rising of the beasts resulting in billions of deaths and will climax when Christ shall slay the wicked when he comes as "KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS." Rev. 19L16
"And I saw an angle standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fouls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, . . . and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great." Rev. 19:17-18
These events appear to end the existence of man on the earth just as the flood ended man on the earth, except Noah and his family in the Ark and the saved shall be safe in heaven when these awful events occur.
Footnote: Russian President Putin reportedly remarked that war between the U.S. and China would end the human race. Christ addressed this issue: "And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened." Matt. 24-22
QUESTION: Is President Biden Mentally competent?
Many are asking this question. While I am not a doctor but have much experience being involved with elderly people, I see many signs that Biden has serious health issues. President Biden also has serious spiritual issues which are far more important. He made a remark some days ago about his appreciation of the Pope being an understanding or forgiving man. Apparently President Biden believes that he can do anything and the Pope will forgive him. This has been a false doctrine that has been promoted for hundreds of years and has without a doubt cause many millions of people to end up in hell.
Christ gave His disciples great powers, heal the sick, cast out demons, preach the gospel, etc., but one power that He had that He did not give to His disciples was the power to forgive sins--with the exception of forgiving those that sinned against them which we must do, Matt. 6:15.
America's problems are far more serious than just an incompetent President. He is being protected by people drunk on power that will do ANYTHING to protect and promote their agenda of being for almost everything that God condemns. And the people that tries to get the truth out are demonized beyond measure. This is not new. It has happened before. When Jeremiah preached to the Israelites, lying was a way of life, Jer. 5:1 A farmer has posted a sign on I-94 in Wisconsin saying: "Lying is Destroying America."
The writings of Jeremiah could be written in any newspaper as today's news in America. He wrote that "My people have committed two evils; they have forsaken the fountain of water, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns that can hold no water." Jer. 2:13. This what is happening in America today. The politicians and false teachers promote the theory that they can do or say anything with God's blessings. Yes, God is a forgiving God, but forgiveness is predicated upon repentance and repentance is to stop the wrong doings. When Christ forgave the woman taken in adultery, He told her to go and "sin no more," John 8:11--He did NOT tell her to go her way and continue her sinful life style. When the unjust steward was about about to outed, he sought to correct his wrongs, Luke 16:1-7 When David set the stage to get a man killed so he could get his wife the wrong had slipped over David head until his servants enlightened him of his evil deed and then David went out and REPENTED of his sin. 11 Sam. 11; 12:1-7 The Romans asked Paul, if they should sin because they were under grace and not under the law. No, Paul said, "God forbid." Rom. 6:15
"The wages of sin is death," Rom. 6:23
If the lying politicians believe they are going to escape the judgment of God by forgiveness at the words spoken by any religious leader, they are sadly mistaken and Satan is waiting for them at the gates of hell.
