Ten ‘10’ Denotes God’s divine ‘COMPLETENESS’ as to things on EARTH. In Revelation 10, he is opening up the ancient scrolls and ‘little book’ of prophecy that Daniel was told to ‘SEAL UP’ and not write of what was spoken. He was prophetically being told additional things that would transpire or occur ‘in the end of days’ and during the 7 year ‘tribulation.
Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the ‘time of the end’: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the ‘time of the end’.
‘Time of the End’:
Revelation ‘10’ And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
2 And he had in his hand a ‘little book open’: (NWN; Daniels ‘little book’ is now being opened by God’s Great Angel of Prophecy) and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven ‘7’ thunders uttered their voices.
(NWN; I ‘discern’ that these are seven ‘7’ other great prophecy angels who are ‘confirming’ that NOW IS THE TIME to OPEN DANIEL’S ‘END TIME’ Book of Future Prophecy.’)
4 And when the seven ‘7’ thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven ‘7’ thunders uttered, and write them not.
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
(NWN; The Great Prophecy Angel is proclaiming the ‘LAST DAYS or END TIMES’ have come, in no uncertain terms, and that NOW IS THE TIME to reveal prophecy related TO the Last Days or End Times and Tribulation.)
7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh ‘7’ angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
(NWN; Seven ‘7’ denotes God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for this ‘7th’ prophecy angel to commence and complete prophecy related to the Last Days and End Times. Think of the Great Prophecy Angel as a ‘General’ and the ‘7th’ prophecy angel as a Major or Colonel or someone of rank who has been given authority to physically ‘begin something or start something.’)
8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open (NWN; notice that the ‘little book’ is OPEN) in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
(NWN; the prophecy angel(s) are HANDING the little book to physically alive men on the earth. In essence, they are handing or ‘transferring’ the ‘little book of prophecy’ to physical men ALIVE on the EARTH during the ‘End Times’ or ‘Last Days.’ God conveys prophecy to Angels who in turn are ‘messengers’ of God’s prophecy to mortal men alive. Angels, throughout the past 6,000 years have been ‘messengers’ for God to mankind.)
9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
(NWN; this is a ‘discernment’ on my part. ‘Take it and eat it’ is a spiritual ‘consumption’ of understanding the End Times and God’s related prophecies to go along with ‘signs of the times.’ It takes ‘7’ knowledge, wisdom, obedience, humility, persistence, prayer and the Holy Spirit’ to work prophecy in man’kind. This is a great and wonderful thing, just like a ‘7’ course meal. However, once the prophecies are apparent ‘consumed and understood’ they will be prone to make one sick to the stomach because of what they foretell. Just like eating a ’7’ course meal will likely make you feel like you could explode. God’s UNFILTERD WRATH poured on evil man’kind who refuse Him, and refuse His Son Jesus Christ and His eternal offer of salvation. Seeing prophecy happen and unfold is a wonderful and miraculous thing. Understanding the implications of seeing prophecy unfold, leaves one’s stomach bitter and sour because of the ‘gastrointestinal storm’ that is coming. Pass-the-antacid-pills, please.)
10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
(NWN; the prophecy angel was prophesying what would happen to anyone who attempted to reveal what was in the ‘little book.’ This verse ‘confirms’ that what was prophesied, did in fact occur and was experienced by those given the task of being Watchmen. This also ‘suggests’ that some men are ‘willingly’ allowing themselves to be Watchmen because they consciously love prophecy (God’s Word) and are completely open and receptive to it.)
11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
(NWN; since this is verse ‘11’ it suggests a WARNING(S). The purpose of prophecy is to inform, proclaim and WARN. It suggests that the Watchmen who proclaim the Word of God, will have their ‘7’ words, letters, videos, blogs, sermons, articles and books proclaim God’s WILL to those during the End Times / Last Days and Tribulation period. God has ALWAYS used Holy Angels and physical men (Moses, Elijah, Daniel, Enoch, and others) to speak on behalf of God. He will do this also through the Tribulation via; 1. Prophecy revealed to mankind via his ‘little book’ to Watchmen, 2. The ‘two witnesses’, ‘lampstands’ or candles who proclaims God’s light to the world for the first 3.5 years of the tribulation, 3. The various Angel warnings given to men to NOT TAKE THE MARK of the BEAST and lastly, 4. The 144,000 Jewish Evangelists who have the ‘seal of God’ in their foreheads (and NOT the mark of the Beast) who proclaim Jesus Christ’s offer of Salvation ONE LAST TIME, before the 7 year tribulation ends.)
Acts 2:17-21 And it shall come to pass ‘in the last days’, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
Joel 2:28-29 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids ‘in those days’
Gene Therapy: Did We Open Pandora’s Box? As biotechnology advances, companies seek to make breakthrough treatments with sometimes fatal results. God’s ‘Great Warning’ and the ‘Mark of the Beast’ Riddle.
BY HEALTH 1+1 AND DR. YUHONG DONG TIMEMAY 1, 2022
Jesse Gelsinger, 18, had a rare metabolic disorder called ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency syndrome, or OTCD, in which ammonia builds up to lethal levels in the blood. He managed the condition with a low-protein diet and a regimen of nearly 50 pills a day.
In 1999, Gelsinger volunteered to participate in a gene therapy trial with the hope of helping others with the same disease. However, a few days later, he became the first person to die as a result of a gene therapy experiment.
The potential OTCD treatment was to inject a genetically modified and weakened adenovirus vector into the patient’s liver, and to introduce the normal ornithine aminome thyltransferase gene (OTC gene) into the patient’s liver chromosomal DNA, to restore the liver’s ability to metabolize ammonia.
Gelsinger received this modified virus.
However, he had an intense inflammatory response and developed a dangerous blood-clotting disorder, followed by kidney, liver, and lung failure. Four days after receiving the shot, Gelsinger was declared brain dead.
Gelsinger’s family sued the University of Pennsylvania, which had developed the program.
The tragedy shocked the drug development community, and immediately cooled the research boom in gene therapy. The entire gene therapy industry began to crumble: investors withdrew their funds, startups went bankrupt, the heads of R&D projects were stripped of their titles, and gene therapy centers were shut down.
Gelsinger’s story is well known in the field of gene therapy. The tragedy brought gene therapy development to a near standstill for the next 18 years. Mainly because Gelsinger’s accidental death made many developers believe there were many unknown and uncontrollable serious risk factors in gene therapy, as if shooting in the darkness where the target cannot be seen.
More Deaths Caused by Gene Therapy
Some 18 years after Gelsinger’s death, a gene therapy for an eye illness was approved by the FDA. In 2017, Spark Therapeutics’ Luxturna, a treatment for a rare genetic retinal disease, was approved for people who have a mutated RPE65 gene. Luxturna uses a modified virus to deliver a healthy copy of the gene directly to a patient’s retinal cells through eye surgery. It only required local injection and had little effect on the body. That’s one of the reasons it could succeed on the market. This treatment re-spark interest in the field of gene therapy.
In 2019, the FDA approved Novartis’ Zolgensma (onasemnogene abeparvovec-xioi), a gene replacement therapy indicated for the treatment of spinal muscular atrophy in pediatric patients. Later that year, the company got in trouble for not informing the FDA and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) about toxic effects of the intravenous formulation of the drug observed in laboratory animals until seven months later. The company lost an accelerated assessment of the drug by the EMA over the data manipulation issue.
In 2019, in an animal trial of a gene therapy developed by Solid for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy, three monkeys and three piglets all suffered severe toxicity and eventually died. The company was later placed under a clinical research hold in 2019 after one of its human participants suffered an adverse reaction, though that hold was lifted in 2020.
In 2020, Astellas Pharma acknowledged that a fourth boy died in the troubled Phase I/II trial through which its Astellas Gene Therapies (formerly Audentes Therapeutics) has been evaluating its adeno-associated virus gene therapy candidate AT132 in patients with the muscular disease X-linked Myotubular Myopathy. The company had lowered the dose of the treatment after the first three deaths led to an FDA clinical hold on the trial.
What Is a Gene?
Genes (DNA) are the most delicate and complex structures in the human body. They exist in the nucleus of the human body’s cells to ensure the normal functioning of the structure and function of the human body; in addition, genes also determine characteristics such as height, gender, appearance, hair color, skin color, blood type, sex, etc.
Scientists have now found that humans have at least 20,000 to 23,000 genes. If the DNA in the 50 trillion cells of the human body is stretched and connected together, its length is equivalent to 16 times the distance from the earth to the sun. How can such a small nucleus fit such a length? The DNA twists further on top of the double helix, becoming supercoiled, like an old-fashioned telephone wire when twisted.
The outside of DNA is coated with proteins to form chromosomes. There are 23 pairs of chromosomes in each somatic cell of a normal person, and a chromosome contains hundreds to thousands of genes, that is, each chromosome is a highly coiled and compressed shape of genes.
The discovery of DNA is one of the most important and well-known scientific stories of the 20th century. In 1953, American biochemist James Dewey Watson and British physicist Francis Crick published in the journal Nature that they discovered the DNA of two strands of nucleotides, paired as a double helix form, encoding the genetic information of all living things.
Since then, genetic testing technology has flourished, ushering in a new era in biomedicine. For example, the somewhat-controversial PCR nucleic acid test we used in the COVID-19 epidemic is a genetic test.
Unfortunately, the gene therapies that have followed have traveled a bumpy road marked by adverse reactions and even death.
Gene Therapy: A Pandora’s Box
The concept of gene therapy is very attractive: The target gene is introduced into the human body to correct an incorrect gene and cure a disease. However, the structure of genes isn’t as simple as that of proteins. Genes are a very central and important substance in the nucleus. Gene therapies target the problem gene that needs to be corrected but can damage other genes when it is off the target.
The consequence of serious off-targets, several cases of death, is a warning.
The human genetic sequence is very important. It’s perhaps the most critical aspect of human physiology. It can’t be changed casually. Genes control all individual organisms and all important physiological processes such as protein synthesis, cell division, reproduction, and so on. Genes can reproduce themselves precisely and faithfully, ensuring the stability of a life’s characteristics.
Modern medicine is still far from able to anticipate the full spectrum of biochemical consequences from pharmaceutical treatments. Acetaminophen was around for more than 100 years before we discovered that pregnant mothers who took the drug were more likely to have children with behavioral issues. That inability to foresee side effects is potentially magnified when it comes to genetic alterations.
The 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry has been awarded to two scientists for their contributions to the discovery of a gene-editing method called CRISPR-Cas9. This is a technique that allows precise modification of nucleotide fragments and has been described as “God’s scalpel.”
However, this “God’s scalpel” can’t be used casually.
Chinese scientist He Jiankui tried to use gene-editing technology to open “Pandora’s Box,” causing an uproar in the scientific community around the world. He Jiankui rashly edited a baby’s genes in the name of helping the offspring of AIDS patients. His unethical and immoral acts got him imprisoned and cost him his career.
As biotechnology advances, there is an ever-greater need to rational rather than blindly advancing in the name of profits and technological superiority, even if it’s done under the guise of medical treatment. While we all want a better life, we need to be more cautious when it comes to the development of certain technologies that touch the microscopic level of matter in the human body. We have no idea what could happen as these genetic changes are inherited or how they will interact or interfere with other biological processes. Who knows what we will discover 100 years from now.

With the perilous time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation, comes a very dire warning for those who want to be saved. Night Watchman, ‘I have been YELLING for about two years now, NOT TO GET THE COMING ‘INFRARED Micro-Needle Vaccination SMART Patch’ MARK. The Real Concern is ‘WHY’ YOU SHOULD NOT GET THE VACCINATION MARK. The ‘Short Answer’ is that there is a Robust ‘Genetic-Altering Component’ to the Coming Vaccinations. Which will Defile, Corrupt or Make ‘Unclean’ Human Genetics. This Angers God so Much, that the People Who ‘WILLINGLY’ Get This Abomination ARE DAMNED For ETERNITY. Yes, this is TRUE.
The Great Warning:
… “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimestone in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascendath up for ever and ever; and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosover receiveth the mark of his name.” (Rev. 14:9-11).
Why is God so Intense and Emphatic in Issuing the Three (3) Verse – The Great Warning?
Five-fold Sins Resulting in Men’s Eternal Damnation:
- Worship the beast. (6X). (Rev. 13:4, 13:8, 13:12, 14:9, 14:11)
- Worship the beast’s image. (6X). (Rev. 13:14, 13:15, 14:9, 14:11, 16:2, 19:20)
- Take the beast’s mark. (6X). (Rev. 13:16, 13:17, 14:9, 14:11, 16:2, 19:20)
- Take the beast’s number. (2X). (Rev. 13:17, 13:18)
- Take the beast’s name. (2X). (Rev. 13:17, 14:11)
There are a total of eighteen (18) verses that indicate the eternal sins of damnation that result from worshipping the beast, worshipping his image and taking his mark of identification. Three (3) denotes God’s emphasis and intensity x six (6) denotes the evil number of man = 18, or 6+6+6 = 18, or 666 … “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six Hundred and threescore and six (666).” (Rev. 13:18). (Emphasis added). Worshipping the beast, his image and taking his mark are the eternal sins that men commit during the Tribulation.
There are a total of ten (10) combined references of evil men taking the beast’s mark, number or name. These three descriptions are synonymouswith being identified with (or belonging) to the beast and his system. Ten (10) denotes God’s allness or physical completeness regarding things on earth. These ten references indicate man’s complete earthly evilness and damnation resulting from taking either the mark, number of name of the beast and his kingdom. These men are so deceived and evil, that they not only allow themselves to worship the beast and his fake image, but they allow themselves to be physically branded or marked in order to be identified with the beast. Evil men obtain this mark, number or name so they can also participate in the global economy in terms of buying and selling. They have to be identified as having this mark, number or name, physically evident on either their right hand or forehead, in order to be allowed to execute a purchasing or selling transaction. Once evil men worship the beast, his image and take his mark (or number, name, they are damned.
There are three verses regarding a very specific, powerful and clear angelic warning given to men on earth, to NOT worship the beast, or his image, or take his mark (name, number). Three (3) denotes God’s emphasis and intensity.
… “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb. 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.” (Rev. 14:9, 14:10, 14:11) (Emphasis added). Twice (2) the message is directed at men. The angel repeats himself indicating that the message is for men and what behavior is judged eternally sinful (for ever and ever). Men who worship the beast, his image and take his mark will;
- Experience God’s wrath.
- God’s wrath will not be diluted, or held back, but given in full strength.
- They will be thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone for torment.
- There torment will be forever and ever (eternity).
- Their torment will be witnessed by holy angels.
- Their torment will take place in the presence of the Lamb.
- They will have no rest day or night, forever and ever (eternity).
There are seven (7) specific results that stem from men worshipping the beast, his image and taking his mark (name or number). Seven (7) denotes God’s divinely determined completeness as to his purpose or plan. Eternal punishment in the lake of fire and brimstone, day and night is the strongest wrath that God gives evil men (and Satan, beast/antichrist and false prophet). There is a specific mention that this torment takes place in the presence of the Lamb. These men, while in their torment, will see or consciously be aware of the existence or presence of Jesus Christ. This will provide added pain, anguish and misery since they will be painfully made aware of the choice of their decisions (to worship the beast, his image and take his mark). They were warned not to do what they did. The Bible gives plenty of examples of the glory that is given to those who did NOT take worship the beast, his image or take his mark. Yet, despite the angelic warning … despite the 3 ½ year testimony of two witness and prophets … despite the witnessing of Tribulation Saints … despite the flying angel who proclaimed the gospel of Jesus Christ … evil men still chose to worship the beast, his image and to take his mark, name or number. They choose to ignore the messages, the warnings, and the testimonies. And now, they are in the lake of fire and brimstone, and will have to pay the price for their evil decision(s), for eternity. They see Jesus Christ, and have become painfully aware of what they could have had through Jesus Christ and instead, they chose the false, empty promises of Satan by worshipping the beast, his image and taking his mark, name or number. Their extreme bitterness and woeful regret will emotionally torment them for eternity, in addition to the physical pain, suffering and torment that they will experience in the lake of fire for eternity. Through their decision to follow Satan, God gave them exactly what they wanted. They did not want anything to do with Jesus Christ, who paid for their sins with his own blood. As such, God gave them over to Satan, since it was their decision and what they desired while they were physically alive on earth. These evil men did everything humanly possible to ignore warnings, to blaspheme god, to ignore the gospel of Jesus Christ, and instead accepted and believed in lies, worshipped Satan, the beast and his image. Evil men even went so far as to physically defile their bodies (flesh) by taking the branding (mark, number or name) of the beast. All of these actions and behaviors enabled evil men to give themselves totally and wholeheartedly over to Satan through his system of the beast/antichrist and the false prophet.
There are two visions describing what John the Apostle saw, regarding men who were overcomers (them that had gotten victory) by NOT worshipping the beast, his image or taking his mark, number or name).
… “And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgements are made manifest.” (Rev. 15:2, 15:3, 15:4). (Emphasis added).
… “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgement 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.” (Rev. 20:4). (Emphasis added).
Men who do NOT worship the beast, his image and take his mark are described as;
- They are in heaven (stand on a sea of glass).
- They have harps of God.
- They sing praises and worship Jesus Christ for their salvation.
- They acknowledge that God’s judgements came to pass.
- They are given thrones upon which they sit upon.
- They are given judgement.
- They live and reign with Christ for a thousand years.
There are seven (7) specific results that stem from men NOT worshipping the beast, his image and taking his mark (name or number). Seven (7) denotes God’s divinely determined completeness as to his purpose or plan. These blessings or glories are the complete opposite of what awaits those men who DID worship the beast, his image and took his mark, name, number.
- The righteous are in heaven for eternity versus evil men who are in the lake of fire and brimstone for eternity.
- The righteous are joyful and play harps versus evil men who are bitter, resentful, angry, tormented, cry and wail in anguish.
- The righteous sing the praise of and worship Jesus Christ versus evil men who once praised and worshipped Satan (through the beast, his image and in taking his mark).
- Righteous men acknowledge that what God said would come to pass, in fact did come to pass (made manifest) versus evil men who ignored and rejected warnings, the gospel and testimonies of the truth.
- The righteous are given thrones in heaven versus evil men who are drowning in torment in the lake of fire.
- The righteous are given judgement versus evil men who are judged.
- The righteous live and reign with Christ verses evil men who die and fall with Satan.
The avoidance of doing these five (5) eternal sins is one of the most important themes, in the entire book of Revelation. Men must avoid doing these things, literally at all costs. Even to the point of being beheaded or martyred. Men’s eternal destinies depend on it. Worshipping the beast, his image and taking his mark, name or number result in eternal damnation. There is no way of sugar coating or downplaying this reality.
By taking the beast’s mark, name or number, men in essence have signed their name on the dotted line in blood, in regards to giving their utmost allegiance to Satan, through the beast/antichrist/man of sin. They have completely, unequivocably given themselves over to evil via their mind, heart, body and soul. They have even allowed their flesh to be modified to reflect their satanic status. There is nothing worse that a man can do than WILLINGLY give himself over to Satan. God gives men freewill and a choice. At this point, Jesus Christ can’t provide salvation to lost men. They have made their choice. They chose Satan over Christ. They chose to ignore Christ’s offer of salvation. Christ does NOT force himself on anyone who does not want him, or his offer of free forgiveness of sins through Him, and the shedding of his blood and resurrection. God created man in his image. Men are described as imagers of God. Once man worships the beast, his image and takes his name, number or mark; the body, soul, mind and heart are completely defiled and no longer reflect God’s reflected glory in man. Instead, the evilness of Satan is reflected in the evil men who ignore the angel’s dire warning. There is a major difference between receiving a mark (branding) by the beast/antichrist versus receiving a seal of ownership by God in the forehead. God reserves the forehead on a man for his seal of ownership. A true seal of God’s ownership is spiritual and placed in the forehead of those redeemed by Christ. Conversely, once the beast/antichrist has put a mark/branding on the outside/surface of the forehead, that person is given over to Satan and becomes his property (for future slaughter). This duality between satanic markings and holy sealings in foreheads is very real and denotes a person’s status to angels, to Satan and to God/Christ. Once evil men do the exact things that they are warned not to do, they have forfeited Christ’s offer of salvation, for eternity. The mark of the beast and the seal of God denote a man’s status for eternity from the Tribulation.
Conversely, the Tribulation Saints are those strong and redeemed people in Christ who heed the angel’s warnings and don’t take the mark of the beast, or worship him or his image. Many passages throughout the book of Revelation indicate the glorious future, in eternity, of these redeemed men of Christ who did NOT cave into the beast’s system. They accepted the gospel, they accepted Christ for who he is, they acceptance the forgiveness of their sins through Christ’s shedding of blood and resurrection. They did NOT worship the beast. They did NOT worship the beast’s image. They did NOT take his mark. They did NOT take his number. They did NOT take his name. They did NOT allow their flesh to be defiled. They did NOT believe the lies and deceit spoken of by the beast and his false prophet or religious leader. However, their redemption came with a great personal price of martyrdom in the form of beheading when they refused to withdraw their belief in Christ at the hands of the beast’s persecution. Pray that you will be strong enough to withstand the beast’s persecution.
God isn’t joking or kidding around when He issues a warning. Men are warned not to cross a line, for their own good. Do they listen? Do they obay? Do they take the warning seriously? These warnings are so serious because they have eternal consequences.
For those ‘left behind’ we pray that you will be comforted in knowing that something great and glorious has happened to your spouse, children, family members and friends. We pray that you will not be deceived and believe the lies that are being fanned around the world through the media. We pray that you will understand and accept the truth of what happened, and what is going to happen. We pray that you will recognize the beast and false religious leader for who they are, the most vile, evil, lying and deceitful men who have ever walked this earth. They are here for your destruction. Plain and Simple. Literally, don’t believe anything they say. Lastly, and most importantly, we pray that you will accept the offer of salvation from Jesus Christ (the Lamb), through his forgiveness of your sins and shedding of blood, and resurrection. The offer and your response to it is the most important decision you will make in life, and has eternal consequences. For either glory or eternal damnation. Which will you choose? Do not make the mistake of downplaying, discounting, ignorning, postponing or discrediting Christ’s offer.
… “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:15).
…”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.” (John 3:16).
… “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” (John 3:17)
We pray that you will make the right and correct choice and accept Christ’s offer of salvation, and that you will be strengthened to understand and withstand all the evil, lies and deceit that the beast and his system throws at you. I cannot overstate that you must withstand the beast and his rampant evil at all costs.
The Mark of the Beast Riddle
A couple of years ago, I had a total knee replacement (ouch, is an understatement). Shortly before my Father-in-Law passed away, he had a special hearing implant. I have seen military vets with varying degrees of implants and prosthetic devices. Do you know of anyone of with a pacemaker and any other type of technological/medical implant? In 2017, most of us following eschatological developments were acutely made aware of the company in Wisconsin that started offering its employees, ‘implantable micro-chips’ in their hand so they could buy a bag of stale chips in the cafeteria vending machines and to open doors! What a personal price to pay by these employees so they don’t have to reach in their pocket to grab 75 cents or buck to buy a bag of chips, and all that (pun intended). What could be cooler than using an iphone or other smartphone to pay for chips, than by using an implanted micro-chip (not the kind that can be eaten)? For the mobile technology addicted crowd, an implanted micro-chip is the next wave of coolness. I wonder how long they will have to wait in line for version 2.5 of this new mobile device miracle. What do all these have in common? They are all technological implants of one kind or another. Yeah, so what? They can all wear out, break down, be replaced, be removed, be improved, be modified, something better always comes along, etc. Again, they are all man made devices and not inherently evil.
Let me ask you a question. Does my knee implant make me any less human or an imager of God (or Christian, saved by Christ’s Grace)? Does an older person’s pacemaker make him/her any less valuable in the eyes of God? A military vet that has lost a limb and had it replaced with a prosthetic device, does he/she lose their chance at salvation because of a man-made device becoming part of their body? Of course not, the Bible doesn’t mention anything about being saved or a person losing their chance of salvation due to some type of device or technology becoming part of that person. A man-made device does NOT change or corrupt my unique genetic being as an imager of God! Even with implants, we are still human (an imperfect as a result of mankind’s fall). Why wouldn’t an implanted micro-chip, RFID chip or some other unknown or future electronic device (implanted or otherwise) no be considered a ‘Mark’. Wouldn’t an electronic device be needed to conduct a buy/sell transaction?
Genetic Corruption of the Imagers of God:
What sinful activity really angered God at the beginning of the Bible? Genesis (6:1-5) goes into detail about fallen angels (sons of God as opposed to sons of Man), who left their first estate in heaven to mate with human women (daughters of men that were seen as ‘fair’). This unholy mating of angelic beings with human beings created a hybrid race of Nephilim (giants, mighty men, men of renown). The Nephilim were such an abomination, that God cast the fallen angels (watchers) who spawned these beings, into the bottomless pit/abyss with chains. “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day” (Jude 6). God also instructed the Israelites to kill the various clans of these giant hybrid angels/humans. Does Goliath the Philistine (and his two brothers) come to mind? How about… “And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight” (Numbers 13:33). “For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man” (Deuteronomy 3:11). “All the kingdom of Og in Bashan, which reigned in Ashtaroth and in Edrei, who remained of the remnant of the giants: for these did Moses smite, and cast them out.” (Joshua 13:12). Yes, there were human, genetically bastardized hybrids who in most cases were at least over ten (10) feet tall. Accept it. Get over it. Move on.
Outside of the eschatological community, bringing up the concept of the Nephilim is either mocked, completely ignored, brushed off as non-biblical or as fairy tales, discredited, incorrectly interpreted or altogether avoided because of the unsettling connotations and repercussions that result from the evidence of giants having existed in antiquity. Among the evolutionists, evidence of giants totally confounds their anti-creation theory of evolution. Some people are either scared of or are uncomfortable with the evidence of hybrid humans or giants having lived. If you are still not convinced of the biblical proof of Nephilim, I strongly suggest that you research the fantastic work done by Mr. Rob Skiba (a Christian researcher) and review the cornucopia of physical evidence he painstakingly provides. I am only bringing this topic up as a case in point about the extremely dangerous outcomes of genetic manipulation of the human genome. God hates it (understatement) … (genetic manipulation and species hybridization) and destroyed it via the Flood and later through the Israelites. God takes extreme offence with any corruption, meddling or manipulation of his created beings aside from what He designed and created them to be in the first place. He specifically created man and woman in His image (Genesis 1:26-27, 5:1-2). God also created what is believed to be nine (9) distinct classifications of angelic beings or heavenly host. He creates specifically, purposely and according to His will and plans. Speaking about the destruction of the giant hybrid angelic/human Nephilim, does the Flood come to mind?
Prior to the Flood, Genesis (6:8-13) goes into detail about how … The whole earth was being corrupted and all flesh was being corrupted upon the earth. God saw the earth as being so filled with violence (not only among men, but extreme violence caused by the Nephilim) that he decided to destroy everything (all flesh). There is some evidence that also suggests that animal hybrids were also created by either the fallen angels or by men who were taught how to do this. However, “Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord, was a just man and perfect in his generations” (Genesis 6: 8-9). I believe perfect means being uncorrupted genetically when taking into account the generational context of this verse and the conditions of flesh on the earth at this time. In the days of Noah, apparently all flesh became genetically corrupted including men and animals. Although there are several reasons why God saved Noah and his family (including no genetic corruption), you have to understand why God also wanted to save a portion of the animals that were not genetically corrupted and still pure as God had originally intended and created them to be. Humans and animals on the ark were meant to re-populate the earth, after the flood, with uncorrupted, pure genetics. God wiped the slate clean and started over with genetically pure human and animal specimens that were not tainted through angelic hybridization or genetic manipulation.
Where does Satan come into play in all of this? One of the main lies and deceptions (of many) that he has used throughout the Bible and history was to tempt mankind by offering a false, counterfeit immortality. After the Devil tempted Adam and Eve in the garden with eating the fruit from the tree of knowledge (good/evil), God did not want Adam and Eve to eat fruit from the tree of life … and live forever (immortal, in a fallen state), (Genesis 3:22). Only Christ can provide true, genuine, righteous immortality based upon our spiritual rebirth and the glorious transformation of our fleshly bodies (1 Corinthians 15:49-55). Over time, as God revealed the genetic lines that the Messiah (Jesus Christ) was to come from, the Devil made it a priority to attack the genetic lines of those people in an attempt to thwart God’s plan by genetically corrupting the messianic family tree by various means. This obviously failed. The point is that genetic intercession and manipulation is a major strategy used by Satan to deceive mankind with a counterfeit immortality and attempt to derail God’s plans (past, present and future). The Devil’s main strategy has always been to corrupt and counterfeit anything God has created or declared being very good (Genesis 1:31). Since the beginning of the Bible, Satan has made it one of his top priorities to corrupt mankind (in the flesh and spirit) so that we are no longer the imagers of God.
…”And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.” Corruption of flesh, extreme violence, extreme sin, extreme abominations, extreme evil. “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). “And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.” (Revelation 16 8-9). These two verses directly, and several other verses indirectly, suggest that men may have somehow attained the ability to withstand extreme elements and afflictions, up to and including the ability to not die. However, they will still experience extreme and unbearable affliction, pain and torment. This would provide further evidence of some type of genetic manipulation or enhancement was in play. A counterfeit immortality? Some prophecy teachers/students have suggested that the scorching heat will be seven times (7X) hotter than today’s hottest temperatures on earth. From a scientific standpoint, this extreme heat could be representative of massive solar flares reaching the earth. It is an extreme and sad irony, that people during the Tribulation will perhaps stand in line to get the Mark of the Beast, thinking of the lie of immortality, and then once having this counterfeit, satanic ability, wishing that they could die. Be careful of what you want, you might get it! If God wouldn’t tolerate genetic manipulation and hybridization during the times of Noah, why would he allow it during the Tribulation? God is the same then, now and always. He doesn’t change, nor does his Word change. Now, in this day and age, mankind has the ability (if unrestrained by any authority or ethical conscience) to make the same mistake, as in the days of Noah, to genetically manipulate the human genome. However, it doesn’t take much stretch of the imagination to think that the restraints that currently exist to prevent or ‘restrain’ human genetic manipulation, could easily and quickly fall by the wayside during the Tribulation.
What does all this techno-geno-babble have to do with the Mark of the Beast (as opposed to the number of the Beast)? My belief (based upon what the Bible says) is that the Beast will use a form of deception and lies that requires/entices people to receive a form of genetic enhancement, or manipulation. This could be used as a proxy for men to become resistant to the pestilences that occur during the Tribulation period. This could also be used as a lie that suggests science can make men immortal by not having to die by the diseases and genetic ailments that have plagued mankind since mankind’s fall. This of course does nothing to address the spiritual death of mankind. People during the Tribulation will not be concerned with their spiritual health or status, let alone of repenting, giving Gold glory, and accepting Christ. Which deceived person would not want to have a counterfeit immortality? (which is that age old deception again!). What could a mark look like on the hand or forehead? This could be in the form of a biometric marker or fleshly signature that is caused by genetic manipulation or process. It could also just be as simple as a satanic graphic tattoo, stamp, logo or branding. This could also be a number that is obviously descriptive in nature. 365/24/7 means something to most people (this describes something that occurs 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week). Go online and check out how CERN uses the interplay of 666 in their logo. Revelation (13:16-17) clearly states that this will be a “mark, the name, or the number of his name” (of the beast). The mark destroys a human’s status as an imager of God and bastardizes the element of God that was initially created in that person. Which is why I believe there is a genetic component to the mark. As such, deceived members of the antichrist’s system can be identified in three different physically visible manners (mark, name, number).How could a person make a worldwide purchase by only having a symbol, biometric mark, name or number on their hand or forehead? Won’t they need a credit card, smartphone, micro-chip or physical device of some kind (implantable or otherwise) to conduct an economic transaction? No. No. No.
Today, biometric scanning is used throughout the world by major governments to monitor their civilians and is growing exponentially. Scanning captures detailed facial features, iris patterns, fingerprint patterns, and even voice pattern recognition and DNA. Instead of scanning a credit or debit card, or even a micro-chip, all the Beast’s system has to do is scan a person’s face or hand (that has the visible signature or mark). The system electronically acknowledges the mark (in the same manner as when a scanner reads someone’s iris to determine their identity), which then activates the decision (go, no-go) algorithms, which in turn authorize electronic transfer of cashless funds. It is all done electronically, behind the scenes in milliseconds. The electronic system then knows (via stored information in the world’s databases) that the person with the Beast’s mark, number, name is part of the new world system and is then allowed to buy and sell. No need to have cash, a credit card, or even a micro-chip device implant. It is well known that countries and the credit card companies are pushing hard today to do away with cash. All international banking and fund transfers are electronic. The only parties using cash, are individual citizens, making private purchases. Bitcoin, Crypto-Currencies are also some recent attempts at developing cashless electronic currency. Russia, India, Europe and the U.S. are all pursuing electronic scanning technology and data management systems with aims at various goals, including, but not limited to, economic monitoring. It doesn’t take much to see how these systems can easily coalesce together into one network during the Tribulation. This new world economic system is nothing more than financial databases, transaction systems and protocols being tied together, founded on a common data scheme which pulls in data from biometric scanners all over the world. This was unthinkable even five years ago.
Why does God specifically declare that anyone who takes the Mark of the Beast will be lost forever and is beyond salvation, even with the gospel of Christ being communicated throughout the entire earth by the two witnesses (Revelation 11:3-13), three witnessing angels (Revelation 14:6-11), 144,000 Jewish evangelists (Revelation 7:4) and Christians’ testimonies/witnessing by refusing to take the mark, prior to their martyrdom (Revelation 20:4). The mark is physical as opposed to a spiritual engraving and means that these people have figuratively crawled into bed with Satan, and there they will stay to receive God’s wrath and to eventually be thrown into the lake of fire with Satan, the Antichrist and the False Prophet (Revelation 13:9-11, 19:20, 20:10). The mark, number, name represents a betrayal of God and a compromise with evil. Conversely, the Bible says the forehead of every believer in Christ is reserved for the “name of my God”. Christ promises, I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem … And I will write on him My new name.” (Revelation 2:12). “And I looked, and lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.” (Revelation 14:1). So, there you have it. The wicked choose to have the Mark of the Beast branded (like cattle) ON their foreheads or right hand (near fingers, finer tips and fingerprints). Conversely, all those saved by Christ (and the Jewish 144,000 redeemed/sealed by God) have the name of God written IN their foreheads.
Taking into account everything that I have stated, including recent, cutting edge technological advancements, this letter will only make sense to folks “who have eyes to see and ears to hear” living during the past several years. I don’t think people living prior to the smartphone or computer era (let alone to the very recent genetic era) would have any comprehension or belief of the things stated here in. During the Tribulation, many lies will be told to deceive men about the benefits of taking the mark and being part of the new world system. Some people will interpret these benefits (erroneously) as being cool and having no risk whatsoever. The analogy of ‘sheeple’ will rise to a new level. Another sad irony is that these people will most likely line up to receive the mark as if it were the next great smartphone release. I believe there is strong Biblical connections between verses in Genesis and Revelation that tie together the genetic manipulation scenario that could produce the Mark of the Beast. In my analysis, biometric scanning, worldwide database technology and genetic modification will do away with the need to have any physical device on a person’s physical being (implanted or not) in order to conduct economic transactions. The Beast will need a 100% failsafe system to correctly identify who is in the satanic kingdom/system and who is not. A physical device (implanted or not) is NOT a 100% failsafe mechanism for detecting someone’s allegiance to the Antichrist or to enable them to participate in the new world economic system. Physical things with personal identification information in them are easily stolen. This is why the credit card companies (and governments) want to do away with any physical form of commerce and to go completely to an electronic system. The only way to salvation during the Tribulation period is for a person to believe in Christ AND refusal to take the Mark of the Beast, to the point of martyrdom (beheading)… “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.” (Revelation 20:4). As of today, we still do not know exactly what the mark, number or name of the Beast will be or look like. We can only consider what God reveals to us in His time and what we see on the near horizon. I surmise that the mark will be revealed, once the church has been raptured, the Beast comes on the scene, the Tribulation period has begun and the new world order system coalesces into place.
ONE LAST THOUGHT:
Given the fact that we know biometric scanning and verfication involves scanning a person’s iris (eye) and perhaps their fingerprints, is it any coincidence that the mark of the beast will be placed on the forehead or the hand? This mark would be a mere inch or two away from the eye or finger. How easy would it be for the biometric scanner to not only scan the iris, fingerprint and then to also scan the mark of the beast? As previously stated, biometric scanning validates or verifies that a person is who they say they are. Scanning the mark of the beast authenticates and authorizes that person’s transaction to be completed. I don’t believe it will be a coincidence for the mark of the beast to be placed either on the hand or forehead. It is conveniently right there … on the forehand or hand … along with fingers and eyes. Consider it, for those of use with eyes to see and minds to discern and understand. For most of the world, during the tribulation, the mark of the beast will just be one more governmental burdern or intrusion to have to accept in the name of convenience, security of personal information, health, identification and commerce. To use an old credit card advertsing slogan, “Don’t leave home without it.” For those during the tribulation, they won’t have to worry about “leaving home without it,” because it will have become permanently and eternally part of their being. To the point of damnation. Believe it. Don’t do it. Don’t do it. Don’t do it (accept the mark, name or number of the beast).

Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
