Cashless Transactions - Mark of the Beast

One World Government; Gene ‘therapy’ for global health. ‘As in the Days of Noah, ALL FLESH had become genetically CORRUPTED OR DEFILED.’ Since 2018, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has made a series of investments that aim to discover gene-based cures that can be delivered safely and accessibly in a “single shot.” ‘Ruh-Roh.’ “Affordable, single-dose gene therapies.” ‘All Trails led to You-Know-Who.’

Matthew 24:33

Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door.

Mark 13:29

Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that it is near, right at the door.

Luke 21:31

Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.

… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)

And he told them a parable: ‘Look at the fig tree, and all the trees. As soon as they come out in leaf, you see for yourselves and know that the summer is already near. So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God is near. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all has taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man (Lk. 21:29-35, ESV).

Vaccination Mark of the Beast System:

(Five (5); Digital ID, Vaccination Passport, Biometric Scanning, ‘Mark’ or ‘code/number’ of Approval or Authorization, 5G Technology/Network.)

The ‘coming’ mark will most likely involve a ‘subdermal’ application of the next wave of vaccinations, that will include a form of ‘digital data memory’ indicating date and time of vaccination. This ‘mark’ of vaccination will involve a sub-dermal outline or image representing a ‘branding’ that can be scanned and revealed by ultra-violet light at a retail checkout point scanner. Just as many people have a physical vaccination ‘mark’ on their arm from getting shots in the 1960s, the coming vaccination mark will be subtle and reside ‘inside’ the human body affecting and indicating a genomic change in the recipient. This is an abomination viewed by God and causes the recipient to lose ‘Imager Status Before God’ and results in eternal damnation. The vaccination ‘mark’ has to be easily accessible by scanners and retail checkout points, hence the recipient will have the option of receiving the vaccination ‘patch’ either on their hand or forehead for ‘scannability.’ The patch or medium itself ‘dissolves’ on the exterior of the skin, as the vaccination and information is administered or delivered under the skin. Some technology is currently under development that will possibly allow for the recipient’s health status and response to the vaccine to be ‘scanned’ and ‘verified’ or ‘validated’ at retail or social checkpoints. The purpose of which is to identify whether or not the vaccine has actually worked (and is working) on the recipient’s body / immune system / genetics / RNA / DNA, in addition to informing authorities as to date, time, dosage and manufacturer of said ‘medicine.’

False Prophet

Revelation 13:16-17 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: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Revelation 19:20 

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Revelation 14:11

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.

Revelation 20:4

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had NOT worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

5G + Biometric Facial / Hand Scanning + Digital / Cashless Transactions + Mark of Approval / Authorization = Tomorrow’s Economy (2020-2027). Why 2020? Because these ‘things’ have already occurred (past tense) elsewhere (China, India, Asia and a few countries in Europe) in the world in 2020, even though they have not yet occurred in the ‘United’ States.

Biometric scanning used for migrant/border control, secure identity verification and approval, government benefits, domestic and international travel security, economic inclusion of everyone, buying/selling transactions and fund transfers, instantaneous speed of transaction and convenience, VAT/taxation collection, mobility, social credit score and ranking, population movement and tracking, monitoring political and religious ‘extremism’ (terrorists). ‘Mark, number or name’ for verification and approval.

‘Any foreign material(s) should NOT be injected into the human body that causes any kind of change in genetic makeup or structure of a human being. This could be five (5) genetic ‘manipulation’, ‘enhancement’, ‘cutting’, ‘modification’, or ‘alteration.’

Revelation 16:2

And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image. [Symptom or result from having ‘received’ the mark, a result from having changed or damaged a person’s RNA, DNA, Immune System or Genetics?].

Both American vaccines use messenger RNA (mRNA) to combat the virus. That is an advanced genetic therapy that uses the virus’ own genetic material against it. Kendrick, however, warns that the technology isreally new and untested, meaning no one really knows how it could affect human health, since it literally hijacks the cellular reproduction mechanism. “We really do not know what these things might end up doing after a prolonged period of time.”

“The plague year of 2020 will be remembered as the time when these traditional vaccines were supplanted by something fundamentally new: genetic vaccines, which deliver a gene or piece of genetic code into human cells. The genetic instructions then cause the cells to produce, on their own, safe components of the target virus in order to stimulate the patient’s immune system.”

‘The MARK’ may not be here just yet, but it will be shortly … in terms of either months or a year or two. Verification that a ‘genetic manipulation’ has been administered and will be evident, either on the hand or forehead by biometric scanning to enable travel, buying and selling. Do you still ‘want to take’ the jab even if it is not yet administered on your hand or forehead in some other manner? If you are curious, please read my other analyses on ‘why’ getting ‘the mark’ is such a bad (understatement) thing in the eyes of God. It is one thing to understand that people in the extremely near future should NOT GET THE MARK. It is another thing to UNDERSTAND WHY THEY SHOULD NOT GET A MARK. This is not a ‘conspiracy theory,’ but the Word of God. I have provided the requisite verses from the Bible, regarding God’s comments about ‘the mark’ of the coming world beast system.

NO ‘MICROCHIP’ NEEDED. Implantable Quantum Dot Microneedle Vaccine Delivery System: A Quick Overview.

MIT researchers have now developed a novel way to record a patient’s vaccination history: storing the data in a pattern of dye, invisible to the naked eye, that is delivered under the skin at the same time as the vaccine. This technology could enable the rapid and anonymous detection of patient vaccination history. The researchers showed that their new dye, which consists of nanocrystals called quantum dots, can remain for at least five (5) years under the skin, where it emits near-infrared light that can be detected by a specially equipped smartphone. To create an “on-patient,” decentralized medical record, the researchers developed a new type of copper-based quantum dots, which emit light in the near-infrared spectrum. The dots are only about 4 nanometers in diameter, but they are encapsulated in biocompatible microparticles that form spheres about 20 microns in diameter. This encapsulation allows the dye to remain in place, under the skin, after being injected. The researchers designed their dye to be delivered by a microneedle ‘patch’ rather than a traditional syringe and needle. Such patches are now being developed to deliver vaccines for measles, rubella, and other diseases, and the researchers showed that their dye could be easily incorporated into these patches. The microneedles used in this study are made from a mixture of dissolvable sugar and a polymer called PVA, as well as the quantum-dot dye and the vaccine. When the patch is applied to the skin, the microneedles, which are 1.5 millimeters long, partially dissolve, releasing their payload within about two minutes.

By selectively loading microparticles into microneedles, the patches deliver a pattern in the skin that is invisible to the naked eye but can be scanned with a smartphone that has the infrared filter removed. The patch can be customized to imprint different patterns that correspond to the type of vaccine delivered. “It’s possible that this ‘invisible’ approach could create new possibilities for data storage, biosensing, and vaccine applications that could improve how medical care is provided, particularly in the developing world,” Langer says.

The quantum-dot patterns could be detected by smartphone cameras after up to five (5) years of simulated sun exposure. The researchers are also working on expanding the amount of data that can be encoded in a single pattern, allowing them to include information such as the date of vaccine administration and the lot number of the vaccine batch. “Storage, access, and control of medical records is an important topic with many possible approaches.” “This study presents a novel approach where the medical record is stored and controlled by the patient within the patient’s skin in a minimally invasive and elegant way.” The research was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Koch Institute Support (core) Grant from the National Cancer Institute.

God will NOT let Christ’s Bride be Deceived by the Dragon, or his ‘MARK.’

True Church / Bride of Christ Spared from God’s Wrath:

 Romans 5:8-10. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Romans 8:35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Jeremiah 30:7. Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

The ‘mark’ comes shortly, during the tribulation, but the Bride is ‘not here.’ The ‘current’ vaccine(s) are NOT the mark, yet. But they are a ‘precursor’ of the beast system process, getting people accustomed to getting ‘tagged’, ‘marked’ or ‘branded.’

3 Reasons Christians Should Stop Worrying about the Mark of the Beast. Two Watchman Confirm a Matter.

Clarence L. Haynes Jr. 2021 3 Feb

There seems to be a lot of worry, grave concern, and fascination over the mark of the beast, especially among Christians. This fascination over the mark has only grown with the Covid crisis and the introduction of vaccines. Many people are trying to tie the mark of the beast to the vaccines, fearful that if they take the vaccine they are taking the mark. Some are even worried they may be tricked into taking the mark without knowing it.

Today I want to put your mind at ease because none of this is true. In fact, if you are a true follower of Christ, I want to tell you to stop worrying right now. I will even take it a step further and tell you that you are concerned about something that you really don’t need to be the least bit concerned about. You can literally put any fear you have about the mark of the beast completely to rest.

I am going to give you three important reasons why you can do this and do it confidently.  Regardless of what you have heard or were taught before, we are going to let the truth of God’s word speak for itself. You do not need to be a Bible scholar, nor do you need to be an expert in Bible prophecy to comprehend this topic in Scripture. A simple reading and understanding of the Bible is all that is required to put your mind at ease, so let’s do just that.

Reason 1 – Those Who Take the Mark Are Worshippers of the Beast

Look at these verses in Revelation 13:

“One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, ‘Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?’ (Revelation 13:3-4).

As you read this, I don’t want you to get too bogged down in trying to figure out or interpret the symbolisms or the meaning of these prophetic words. That is a conversation for another day. To keep this as simple as possible, the dragon represents Satan and this beast represents the Antichrist. However, that is not where I want you to focus your attention. I want you to pay close attention to the reaction of the world to the beast and the dragon. There are three things clearly mentioned.

They were filled with wonder concerning the beast.

This wonder led them to follow the beast.

Following the beast led to them to worship the dragon and the beast.

Why are these three things so critical? These things matter because this is a precursor and an indicator of the people who will ultimately take the mark of the beast. Those who will take this mark are those who have chosen to follow and worship the dragon and the beast. Another way of looking at it is they have pledged their allegiance to the beast. It is this pledge of allegiance that will ultimately lead them to take this mark.

The taking of the mark is an outward reflection of a decision these people have made in their hearts. Taking the mark follows a very natural progression because they have already decided to follow the beast. I want to make this abundantly clear: You cannot be tricked or duped into taking the mark of the beast, you must make a conscious decision to do it. In other words, there are no “gotchas” when it comes to the mark of the beast. No one can pull the wool over your eyes. In order to take this mark your heart and your will must be fully engaged in the process.

Reason 2 – Those Who Worship the Beast Are Not in the Lamb’s Book of Life

“All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world” (Revelation 13:8).

May I ask you, is your name written in the Lamb’s book of life? You might be wondering how you can know for sure. Well here is the answer:

“Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12).

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

If you have met the very simple criteria laid out here in Scripture, your name is written in the Lamb’s book of life. If Jesus truly is your Savior, then your name is written in that book. If you truly belong to Christ, there is no way you would ever pledge your allegiance or your worship to anyone else. Aside from that, and probably more importantly, is that if you belong to Christ, he will keep you.

“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand” (John 10:27-29).

“To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen” (Jude 1:24-25).

I implore you today to stop worrying about some mark and start putting your focus on the one who has promised to keep you and present you faultless in his presence. This is where your attention should be. When the truth of Scripture takes hold of your heart, any fear or concern about a mark should go away. Jesus has got you and he will not let you go.

Reason 3 – You Are Probably Not Going to Be Here Anyway

When you study Bible prophecy, the period of time when this issue of the mark of the beast arises is called The Great Tribulation. Many Bible scholars believe that this period will take place after an event called the rapture of the church. If you are not familiar, this is when Christ comes and all who belong to him, whose names are in the Lamb’s book of life, are caught up to be with him thus ushering in this period of time known as The Great Tribulation. Look at these verses:

“For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).

Let’s apply some simple reasoning here.

Let’s assume the rapture happens before the tribulation (I believe it does).

We know the mark of the beast is only going to be relevant to those who are in the tribulation (The Bible is clear about this). 

If both of these things are true, then you are not going to be here during this period of time. To make it plain and clear, you have nothing to worry about. The only time in history the mark of the beast becomes relevant is during this tribulation period. Since this period happens after the rapture of the church, it means right now we are not in that period.

By the way, let’s say I am wrong and the rapture happens some time during the tribulation as some believe. Then you can still lean back on the promise of John and Jude that we mentioned earlier. Regardless of what happens, if you are in Christ, you are safe. So stop worrying about the mark of the beast.

Final Thought – Always Fall Back on Truth

Jesus said in John 8:32, you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. Many times, the fears, anxieties, and worries we have come because we are not aware of the truth. This applies to the mark of the beast or anything else that can cause you great concern.

Whenever you are faced with something that seems scary or worrisome in nature, please fall back on the truth of God’s word. Let your comfort and your source of information be God’s word and nothing else. If you will do this then even in times where people are running around with great anxiety, you will not be one of them. You will know the truth and that will set you free.

Revelation 13:2-4

And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

Revelation 13:7 

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world

Dr. Mike McCune leads the HIV Frontiers Program at the foundation and is a professor emeritus of medicine at UC San Francisco.

Since 2018, the foundation has made a series of investments that aim to discover gene-based cures for sickle cell disease (SCD) and HIV that can be delivered safely and accessibly in a “single shot.” This week, the foundation announced that it is providing funding for the pharmaceutical company Novartis to develop affordable, single-dose gene therapies for people most affected by these diseases in sub-Saharan Africa and other regions.

We spoke with Dr. Mike McCune, head of the foundation’s HIV Frontiers Program, to understand how these therapies will both push the scientific envelope and help ensure future access to treatment to those in need around the world.

First and foremost, there’s a huge unmet need. SCD is a major cause of death and disability in some of the world’s most under-resourced communities, from sub-Saharan Africa and India to Black communities in the United States. About 80 percent of the world’s SCD burden is in sub-Saharan Africa, where roughly 1,000 children are born with it every day, more than half of whom will likely die before age 5. While treatments are available, they’re still expensive and resource-intensive, and their effectiveness is far from ideal. Even in the U.S., life expectancy for people with SCD is just 43 years.

Second, SCD is a disease with a relatively simple and well-characterized cause: a single, inherited genetic mutation. Tremendous advances have already been made in reversing the disease, by genetically modifying blood-forming stem cells ex vivo. Ex vivo treatments require a patient’s cells to be removed from their body, altered in a lab, and then reinfused. This successful ongoing work allows us to focus on pushing the boundaries of in vivo delivery approaches.

Third, we expect that scientific and practical advances made in tackling in vivo gene therapies for SCD will be transferable to similar efforts against HIV, a disease for which the precise pathways for sustained, antiretroviral-free viral remission (or “cure”) have yet to be defined.

Why gene therapy? What’s most exciting about this work?

Gene therapy has the potential to end the global threats of SCD and HIV, but only if we can make it far more accessible than today’s gene-based treatments. Though these treatments are already helping people with cancer and rare genetic conditions, they’re expensive and require intensive hospital-based care. Even wealthy countries struggle to provide access to them.

We’re aiming for something very different: affordable gene-based cures that can be delivered in vivo—directly into the body—in a single treatment, ideally as a “shot in the arm” (see https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30982768/). It’s truly ambitious science by any standard. What’s most exciting, though, is that we’re harnessing that ambition to create practical and affordable treatments for the people who need them most.

What led the foundation to fund this project with Novartis? How will it help facilitate global access to successful products?

Gene therapy is new territory for global health. To have the best chance of success, we really need to draw on the best research labs and networks. Novartis has some of the deepest expertise in gene therapy anywhere.

With foundation (Bill and Melinda Gates) support, Novartis will establish a dedicated research team to carry out this work in labs at the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research (NIBR) and provide them with knowledge, resources, and senior leadership involvement from across the company. To have such a focused, well-backed team confronting a global health problem is a rarity in the industry.

In the initial three years, NIBR will focus on discovering new gene therapy candidates and will help the foundation assess candidates identified through our work with other grantees. With our grant funding, they’ll also plan for and conduct animal studies as well as other translational preclinical work. Depending on the pace of discovery, we may extend the collaboration beyond three years and start planning for clinical trials.

Like all of the foundation’s work, the collaboration is governed by our global access policies. The grant agreement includes specific provisions to ensure access to any resulting products, as assessed at each step in the discovery and development process. And, broadly speaking, advancing access in low- and middle-income countries is at the heart of our combined efforts.

How does the work with Novartis tie in to a larger foundation strategy?

The HIV Frontiers Program team has been supporting a continuum of research and planning that is needed to ultimately deliver safe, effective, and affordable gene-based cures for SCD and HIV. These efforts include basic research, technical innovation, preclinical and clinical development, and planning for global access to future cures.

To reach our aspirational goal of “single shot” cures, we recognize the need to invest in organizations that bring in complementary strengths and experience. For example, in October 2019, the foundation and the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced a new collaboration focusing on critical research toward development of in vivo gene therapies for SCD and HIV to resource-limited parts of the world. At the same time, we have been supporting technical innovation and preclinical validation of new in vivo delivery technologies through grants to academic labs, not-for-profits such as Caring Cross, and biotechnology companies such as Guide Therapeutics, bluebird bio, GreenLight Biosciences, Intellia Therapeutics, CRISPR Therapeutics, Immunocore, and BioNTech. The Novartis grant represents another important addition to this body of work, enabling us to support a highly experienced multinational company as they select and validate the most promising candidate cures and move them into clinical studies. These activities will serve to bolster our collaborative efforts with the NIH, which has its own programs fostering groundbreaking research on SCD and HIV cures.

Additionally, we’re engaging with health experts, advocates, and country leaders to make sure that research is driven by local needs and with the full participation of communities. This is occurring in partnership with the NIH, which is supporting the development and enhancement of research infrastructure in countries in sub-Saharan Africa with a high prevalence of both HIV and SCD. Leadership for these efforts is being provided by African scientists and physicians in these countries. Importantly, we have worked over the past several years to establish a public-private partnership (the HIV Cure Africa Acceleration Partnership) to engage a multidisciplinary group comprised of professionals in the natural and social sciences, payers, regulators, community leaders, and people living with SCD and HIV to build models and programs that are practical and acceptable from the stakeholder perspective, thus improving the likelihood of success.

How does the work with Novartis tie in to a larger foundation strategy?

Much can be accomplished by scaling up existing interventions. Many, if not most, childhood SCD deaths, for example, could be prevented by improving screening and access to early interventions that are already standard in the U.S. After decades of slow progress, we’re finally seeing real movement on this front. In fact, Novartis is a key partner with Ghana and other countries working to improve SCD diagnosis and increase access to existing standards of care.

The foundation’s strategy reflects the unique strengths of private philanthropy (Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation): to enable organizations to take risks and give scientists the freedom to experiment without worrying about generating a profit. Even with full access to today’s best care, new and more cost-effective cures will ultimately be needed. Since the necessary investments are risky and it will be many years before these new treatments are available, we need to start the work now.

What fuels your optimism that those cures can be found?

We’ve already seen some exciting, though early, proof-of-concept studies demonstrating the promise of ex vivo gene therapies for SCD. Meanwhile, delivery technologies for in vivo treatments are advancing rapidly. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently approved the first-ever in vivo gene therapies for patients with certain genetic disorders—interventions that use an adeno-associated virus to deliver the treatment directly to the body’s cells. Other technologies are also being studied in animals, including the use of other viruses and lipid nanoparticles as candidate delivery mechanisms. (Virus nanoneedle patches?)

Given the potential of this science, we want to keep researchers focused on the greatest unmet needs, including cures for SCD and HIV in resource-limited parts of the world where they are most prevalent. As COVID-19 has reminded us all, diseases are truly global issues, cutting across borders, income, and geographies. By encouraging industry, government, and other players to align now where the need is greatest, we can help ensure that the resulting innovations benefit all of humanity, not just a select few.

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. (Be Watching).

John 13:19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.

John 14:29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

Luke 21:31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

Mark 13:29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.

Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

‘Increasing Like Labor Pains.’ ‘Fearful Sights.’ ‘Perilous Times.’ ‘Men’s hearts failing with fear.’ Great Convergence of Signs.’ REDEMPTION IMMINENT.

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).

True Church / Bride of Christ Spared from God’s Wrath:

 Romans 5:8-10. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”

Romans 12:19. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Romans 8:35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Jeremiah 30:7. Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it. Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
