Don’t take the Mark of the beast if you do it will be eternal damnation. This will be coming soon so be prepared. There is false teaching we won’t be here for the mark of the beast this is a pre-trib error that many Christians believe today
When you see the temple being built in Jerusalem and sacrifices starting up again this will be close to the tribulation time and at the midway point of the tribulation the sacrifices will stop and the antichrist will be revealed.
And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
The middle of this Tribulation Period is known as the “Great Tribulation Period” or the “Great Tribulation”.
The antichrist will be wounded and in honor of him surviving they will make a image and it will speak and tell everyone to worship it or they will be killed and to take a mark on their right hand or foreheads in order to buy and sell unless they take the mark.
The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.
and if you take the mark it will be eternal damnation.
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.
Anti-Christ cannot come unless the apostasy comes first. There are many anti-Christs working to bring in his appearance. Some of these Anti-Christs have big names and are well recognized in Christian circles. Nevertheless, they are serving to bring Anti-Christ on the scene. After removal of the Restrainer (Holy Spirit) and the revealing of the man of sin. There will be no opportunity for the salvation of a particular group those who have outside or inside the church after hearing the truth of God’s Word. Willingly refused to love the truth and chosen wickedness will forever be doomed to believe “a lie”
2 Thessalonians 2:11-12
For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.
Jesus will be returning soon for the day of the Lord (Wrath) and all who do not repent and turn to the Lord will be destroyed.
Wail, for the day of the Lord is near! It will come as destruction from the Almighty. 7 Therefore all hands will fall limp, And every man’s heart will melt. 8 They will be terrified, Pains and anguish will take hold of them; They will writhe like a woman in labor, They will look at one another in astonishment, Their faces aflame. 9 Behold, the day of the Lord is coming, Cruel, with fury and burning anger, To make the land a desolation; And He will exterminate its sinners from it. 10 For the stars of heaven and their constellations Will not flash forth their light; The sun will be dark when it rises And the moon will not shed its light. 11 Thus I will punish the world for its evil And the wicked for their iniquity; I will also put an end to the arrogance of the proud And abase the haughtiness of the ruthless. 12 I will make mortal man scarcer than pure gold And mankind than the gold of Ophir. 13 Therefore I will make the heavens tremble, And the earth will be shaken from its place At the fury of the Lord of hosts In the day of His burning anger.
