11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” 12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
The patience and perseverance of the saints’ payoff; they escape fire and brimstone and don’t suffer from the wrath of God. They love Jesus, and they worship Him; it is God they put trust and hope in. So real Christians didn’t worship the beast or accept his mark so that they could buy or sell. The Lord God of creation has a mark of obedience, and ever since the beginning, He stated many times, if you love Me, keep His Commandments.
Exodus 20:5 You shall not worship them nor serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, inflicting the punishment of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, six but showing favor to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
The Antichrist’s name is nowhere in the book of Revelation; still, his spirit is. Don’t worship God or obey His Word, the Antichrist teaches. If anyone takes the mark of the beast, and you will be cared for. Many believe that beast’s mark is a microchip, barcode tattoos, and now many fear the COVID-19 vaccine has 666. Many believe that judgment is only for those at the end of earth’s history, but scripture says that isn’t so.
The Bible says that if you love Him, keep the commandments; if you don’t, you worship other gods. The apostle John writes about the Antichrist; he tells the church what the Antichrist teaches and believes. The antichrist message is the commandments of God were done away from it. God’s word doesn’t support this, but many Christians believe this, and Churches teach it. This teaching is false, and it makes the Antichrist a liar and anyone else who follows.
1 John 2:3 By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4 The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; 5 but whoever follows His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him:
2 John 6 And this is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, that you are to walk in it. 7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the Antichrist.
If the commandments of God were done away, as some may believe, then why are many blessed with everlasting life for keeping them? Why do some believe such? Does it make that individual or that church’s relationship with God seem a lot easier if they forget that the Lord has words, He wants His children to live? If you are looking for the Antichrist, ask about the ten commandments and their beliefs in them. Do what I do, ask if you believe the commandments of God are still good, and will God reward you for keeping them, then ask me a simple yes or no. If they yes, give your brother or sister a hug; if they say no, say I love but will pray God will show you the truth from a lie so that you don’t receive God’s wrath. God bless you all, the Lord Jesus loves you, and so do I, Samuel J Head.
1 John 4:17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 19 We love Him because He first loved us. 20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? 21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.
