Many seem afraid of the end times, of the mark of the beast, and the new world order. Is it happening now? Are you marked? Is the vaccine or chip implant the mark? There is still much confusion among Christians, and that shouldn’t be—the devil is the god of fear and confusion. For those who love the Lord Jesus, there is no need to fear. 1) The Lord is in control, working his purposes out. 2) He’s got your back. I am no theologian or Revelation expert, but that book gives us great reassurance in these last days, if we read it carefully.

What is the Great Tribulation?

Revelation 7:14 tells us. “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” Who are they? The ‘great multitude that no one can count from every nation, tribe, people, and language’ in Revelation 7:9. These have already survived the Great Tribulation, which must refer to all the problems earlier in Revelation 6—wars, famines, plagues, and earthquakes— but NOT YET the terrible events in later chapters. (Why does the Lord allow it? To bring the millions-beyond-counting into the Kingdom. It works!) Therefore, the terrible events after this are NOT the Great Tribulation. They happen only after the opening of the seventh seal in Revelation 8:1, and they are far worse than the Great Tribulation in Revelation chapters 6 and 7. Why is this important? Because of the mark.

The Mark of the Beast

The marking with the number of the beast, 666, mentioned in Revelation 13:18, happens in the middle of this second period, AFTER the seventh seal. It doesn’t happen now, and it doesn’t even happen during the Great Tribulation. We also know this is AFTER the rapture, because in Revelation 14:6 we read that an angel has the eternal gospel to proclaim. Why? The story of Cornelius in Acts 10 tells us angels don’t have the authority to proclaim the gospel. That’s our responsibility. While the church is on earth, angels cannot preach the gospel. But God so loves the world that even after we’re raptured, he commands the angel to preach, in the hope of saving the last few. Therefore, the rapture must happen before this—either before or after the Great Tribulation. So the beast cannot mark people now—not until after the rapture. So chill out, if Jesus is your Lord, you won’t be around!

God’s got your back

During the Great Tribulation of Revelation 6 & 7, God puts his own seal on 144,000, before the action (see Revelation 7:3-4), so that they would not be harmed at that time. Notice these are from all the tribes of Israel, so God is making special provision for these few. The angels in charge of the destruction could not harm them, once they had God’s seal. But it gets better! If you are baptised in the Holy Spirit, you are already marked. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession—to the praise of his glory (Ephesians 1:13-14). I’ll say it again: the angels in charge of destruction cannot harm those with God’s seal. So we don’t need to fear the beast’s number, 666. It is NOT the vaccine or any electronic tag or insert. It will NOT happen until after the Great Tribulation (which hasn’t happened yet—we’d know if it had!) Furthermore, if you are filled with the Spirit, you are already marked, and your inheritance is guaranteed. If you are not yet a Christian, may I implore you to humble yourself before the Lord, ask the Father to forgive your sins, and call on the name of Jesus, before it’s too late. Plead with him to fill you with his Spirit. God is faithful, and he will do it. If you want to study further, I recommend my book, The Seven Seals of the Holy Spirit.
