|What If Someone Receives 666 - The Mark of the Beast?|

They will "drink of the wine of the wrath of God" and "be tormented with fire and brimstone" FOR EVER AND EVER!
Revelation 14:9-11 reads:
To think for one second, the rapid increase in technology preparing the way for 666 is just coincident is impossible. There is too much evidence. There is just too many coincidents.
There is an unseen "hand" zooming the world toward a global "digital world" of electronic-commerce, electronic-identification!
16 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:2,000 years ago, the Bible foretold of these events, and they're being fulfilled to the smallest detail before your very eyes!
The Bible prophesies of an event before the Mark of the Beast called the Rapture. When the Lord Jesus Christ will call out or "rapture" all the truly saved people.
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:One day, one night, very soon, millions around the globe will suddenly disappear. Loved ones, friends, children, spouses, neighbors will suddenly vanish. Chaos and fear will plague the streets.
IT WILL HAPPEN!
AND IT WILL HAPPEN SOON!
To realize how near we are to the rapture, 666 - the Mark of the Beast is not even initiated UNTIL THE MIDDLE OF THE TRIBULATION.
AND YET WE'RE NEARLY THERE!
Are you ready for the rapture?
The hour is very late! Friend, you do not want to miss the Rapture! The time of the tribulation will be beyond anything imaginable! Think of the horror when EVIL WILL COMPLETELY TAKEOVER! The whole world will be controlled by SATAN HIMSELF!
Billy Graham, in his book, Storm Warning, makes this warning:
"There is something ominous in the air, and I am intrigued by both THE HORROR AND HOPE of what lies just ahead." (Storm Warning, Billy Graham, p.66)You might be thinking. . . well, when the rapture happens, I'll KNOW the Bible was telling the truth and then I'll get saved.
That's not what the Bible says. . .
I've had people say, "How will the anti-Christ explain away the sudden disappearance of several million people?. The Bible says in 2 Thessalonians 2, "God shall send them STRONG DELUSION, that they should believe a LIE." Not just "delusion" but "STRONG delusion".
9 Even him [anti-Christ], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,Did you see what you just read in 2 Thessalonians? ". . .because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. . ." Friend, that's YOU If you've never received Jesus Christ.
Please don't miss the rapture! Revelation 9:6 describes the horror:
"And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them." Revelation 9:6
It's simple to be saved
In fact, it's so simple, it's hard to believe! It's so simple people are deceived in thinking it can't be that simple. BUT IT IS! The apostle Paul warns, in 2 Corinthians 11:3 of Satan deceiving you by the simplicity in Jesus Christ.
"But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the SIMPLICITY THAT IS IN CHRIST." 2 Corinthians 11:3
You know what? You can be saved right now. You can be saved right where you are! This very minute!
Realize you are a sinner.
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" Romans 3:10Realize you will face JUDGEMENT because of your sins.
"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this THE JUDGEMENT:" Hebrews 9:27Realize you CAN NOT save yourself.
"But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; ..." Isaiah 64:6Realize that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for your sins.
"Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, ..." 1 Peter 2:24Simply receive Jesus Christ by faith as your personal Savior
"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" John 1:12
Salvation is trusting and receiving Jesus Christ as your Savior. It's trusting in the fact that Jesus Christ died on the cross of Calvary to pay for your sins! It's realizing there is absolutely nothing whatsoever you can do to save yourself and completely trusting in Jesus Christ to save you! It's not any church that saves. It's not baptism, not good works, not sacraments, not repenting, not praying through, not enduring to the end, not living a good life — IT'S NOT ANYTHING YOU CAN DO!
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that NOT OF YOURSELVES: it is the gift of God:
Now isn't that plain? NOT OF YOURSELVES. . . NOT OF WORKS. . .
Pray this prayer, and mean it with all your heart.
Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and unless you save me I am lost forever. I thank you for dying for me at Calvary and paying for my sins. I come to you now, Lord, just as You said in Your Word, the best way I know how, and ask you to save me. I now receive you as my Savior. In Jesus Christ Name, Amen.
If you just prayed that prayer — according to the Word of God — YOU ARE SAVED! HALLELUJAH!
You say, but I don't feel any different. Guess what? Your salvation does not depend on your feeling. It ALL depends on doing what God SAID!
God said if you receive and trust in Jesus Christ you are saved. Notice it does NOT say you "might" or "could" be saved — but "shall be saved". YOU ARE SAVED!
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord SHALL BE SAVED. Romans 10:13
Didn't you just believe on the Lord Jesus Christ? Look at what John 3:36 says! It says you HATH EVERLASTING LIFE! Not "maybe" or "hope so" — BUT HATH — YOU ARE SAVED!
He that believeth on the Son HATH EVERLASTING LIFE: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. John 3:36Friend, if you prayed the prayer and received Jesus Christ — YOU ARE SAVED! You did what God said — AND GOD CANNOT LIE!
In hope of eternal life, which God, THAT CANNOT LIE, promised before the world began; Titus 1:2
What to do next?
1. Start reading the Bible. Read the gospel of John. Then read the New Testament. Then start in Genesis and read the whole Bible. And when you finish the whole Bible – start over again. Read your Bible everyday. Three chapters a day (about 10 minutes) will read it through in a year.
