FINAL WARNING PASTORS: Time is Short!

This is a critical warning to all pastors and bible teachers. There is not much time left before the end of all things, and the judgement of all peoples; so you must understand the importance of this message. There is a small minority of pastors preaching the whole counsel of God; and to you, God bless you! To the rest of today’s preachers and teachers: listen closely.

Too many times, God’s Word has been cherry-picked so as not to offend the masses. Too many times weak, modern translations of the bible have been used to diminish the power of the Holy scriptures. Too many times you, as preachers and teachers, have chosen to omit scripture by ignoring the 25% of the bible that is prophecy.

It’s not so much of what I hear at church that bothers me; it’s what I don’t hear. There is no urgency. There is no warning. There is no call to repent and be watchful. There is no teaching of bible prophecy whatsoever.


Our churches are full of weaklings and fools because of you. The people that are supposed to be salt and light to the world are neither. God’s people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. With no solid biblical instruction, they have no foundation and no strength. The bible says that the fear of God is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom. Today’s church is full of fools because the people no longer fear God, and neither do the pastors.


That being said: the mark of the beast is nearer than most can imagine. RFID microchips are nothing new, but they are gradually being normalized into our society through the chipping of pets and now whole groups of people. An American company just voluntarily chipped half of their employees in the name of convenience and security. Today’s generation sees no danger and embraces the merging of mankind with technology; but where’s the church on all of this? Where is your teaching and warning on the subject? The day that microchipping becomes mandatory is fast approaching. While we can’t say for certain what the exact mark is, we should be teaching and warning on the subject. The consequences for taking the mark are eternal, and I fear that many people are going to suffer greatly in the near future.


16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 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 13: 16-17 (KJV)


9 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,

10 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:

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 14: 9-11 (KJV)


I would rather not be so direct and abrupt, but time is short. I care less if I offend, and more that I save. The time for playing church is over, and the time for repentance is now. Jesus is coming quickly. See that you are not counted among the lukewarm church!

MARANATHA!

Watchman73


14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Revelation 3: 14-19 (KJV)

    It’s time to awake from sleep and realize over have the NT and much of the OT have been altered by Rome before Luther ever laid hands on it. It’s time to observe the first commandment of Jesus – that we live by every word of God – and all that entails. The gracious instructions of God is what matters most – as prophecy – good or bad – is based on observing them.

    1. Rich

      Jesus is not His name. (His name is Yashua…He is Hebrew not Greek) Rome change his real name into a Greek idol. And changed His Fathers name over 6800 times in the Bible. His name is YHWH not (the lord) that is a title not His name. Time is short. Repent and get right with YHWH His father.
      Shalom

        after consulting the websites of the messianic congregations in the area, here is what i find:

        they all refer to God as: Yahuah
        they refer to Jesus as:
        Yeshua
        Yahushua
        YahuShuah

      2. Trick

        The Word was with God(Father) The word was God. No one ever saw God(Father) except the Son(Yahushua). The Word became human as Yahushua and came to reveal the Father because they did not know Him. Yahushua was the YHWH in the OT or else the bible is incorrect because it states no man has seen God(Father)

      3. His name is Jesus. He is not bound by a language. Just call upon the name of Jesus in a public place and see the reaction. Every one knows Jesus. This Hebrew roots must stop!

  2. Dave

    The mark of the beast is not a literal seeable mark. As the Bible needs to be interpreted consistently – not ‘cherry-picked’ to fit ones own interpretation – all marks in the Bible are spiritual, seen only in the spiritual world. As Christians we are marked with a sign by God, but it cannot be seen by man in the physical world. Likewise, the MofB is a spiritually seen marked not visible in the physical world.

    Perhaps you should not be so condemning on your podium, as it appears to me and others, you are wrong as well – we ‘all’ need to seek truth from an honest perspective of humility.

      1. phkluzn

        What part of the verse about “IN” your right hand or “IN” your forehead, Did you not understand, Is the English language your second language or what?

      2. Dave

        It also specifically states they will “drink of the wine” does that mean they will literally drink wine? Is the name of this wine “Wrath of God”? Does this cup have the word’ indignation’ written on it?

        It seems you want verse 16 to be literal but unless you can soundly answer the 3 questions above, I am sure you would agree verse 17 is figurative. Can’t have it both ways or scripture can simply mean whatever you want it to mean.

        Time to forget all those false doctrines you been taught and just read the Bible, research other uses of what is in question – like here, how many times in the book of Revelation alone does it mention marks? and then what about the old testament? and of all those, none are even remotely the same as taking this one literally?

        Perhaps you should try again, that is a little more studying Frank.

      3. Paul Atreides

        Hey Frank
        What do you do with your right hand? Virtually everything.
        How is that hand controlled Frank? With your brain. Now turn your brain on and think.
        Since your brain controls your hands & your right hand does Most of your work, then the mark must be a spiritual mark: it is your mind that your hand is controlled by. Therefore the mark, is a mark in our brain; controlling the decisions you are making. You must protect your mind from Satans way of thinking. You MUST not empty your mind like as in yoga but fill your mind with Christ. An empty vessel will get filled maybe with evil, but a vesel already filled with Yashua is filled!!! It can hold NO more!!! You are safe and protected! It’s that simple! Love Jesus with ALL your heart! That is the ONLY way to NOT receive the mark of the beast!
        Yashua blesses ALL! Amen!

    1. Dave, there are four ways to interpret Revelation, there is the literal and the spiritual, the allegorically, and another one.
      The Mark of the Beast can be an RFID chip or even SUNday mandatory worship. All those who keep God’s Laws including the Sabbath will be killed during 2018. Or all those who take the RFID chip can sell and buy but all those not chipped will be killed. Or it can be a combination of the two.

    2. Mike

      If it is not literal, what do you proposed Jesus meant when he told John “right hand” or “forehead”? Just so as not to be cherry picking …

    3. Well Dave, I wish I had a podium, I have a few things to say. My dad always says that when you throw a rock into a pack of dogs, the one that yelps is the one you hit. I figured there would be those saying exactly what you’re saying. You can believe whatever you want in order to rationalize your taking of a microchip. You will take the mark. Know that you were warned. As far as being condescending, I’m glad you picked up on it. I hope all can feel my disgust and frustration. I’ve sat through so much drivel and powerless teaching over the last 9 years since being born again that I’m about to explode. Wake up to the truth, time is running out! The lukewarm church wants to spiritualize all of scripture to their liking, but it will be to their peril!

      1. Perhaps. That’s up to you. We can disagree. I’ve been quite humble when pleading with people these last 9 years but I’m fed up with leaders not doing their jobs. People simply don’t know the truth about this satanic world we live in or how to be saved from the clutches of satan. People aren’t ready for what’s coming.

      2. Dave

        In your reply to to my reply – Not sure why you said that’s up to me, comment makes no sense…but moving on…I agree with your assessment of ignorance to the supernatural …and I appreciate you frustration – but we cannot save the whole world all by our selves or even collectively – God let us know that. Jesus said only a few and Peter compared the few to the 8 saved from the flood.

        What’s most important is behaving in a way that glorifies God and that is in speech and in daily behavior…when a reader responds to me by saying “Is the English language your second language or what?” Therein lies the evidence of what you’re talking about. You think God is glorified in that persons responding as such? …or throwing rocks at dogs analogies?

    4. The Greek for “mark” in Revelation 14:9 is “charagma” (Strong’s #5480), and means “a stamp, an imprinted mark; of the mark stamped on the forehead or the right hand as the badge of the followers of the Antichrist; the mark branded upon horses; thing carved, sculpture, graven work.” Can’t imagine this is invisible.

    5. cc jj

      Dave, Instead of writing things that start with “perhaps you should”, maybe you should just move along find some other blog you agree with, and have a little respect for this author. He is not condemning – he is Right. Being right is not a lack of humility.

      The churches AREN’T preaching on this – I’ve been to many. The people AREN’T talking about it – they are wrapped up in church activities. No one wants their bubble popped. We’re too busy having Football Sunday of a ladies’ fellowship where we exchange scarves or cookie recipes.

      1. Amen! Thank you for that! You’re comment about church activities made me laugh. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone on long diatribes to anyone who’ll listen about the exact same thing. I’ve actually had people try to tell me how great their church is based on “fun” activities. I don’t think they’ll be having a lot of fun in the not so distant future. Judgement begins in the house of the Lord! The wheat and tares will be separated. MARANATHA!

      2. Rich

        Yashua (Jesus) said: If you LOVE me keep my Commandments…..Is the Church doing this or are they keeping only 9 of the 10…..The sabbath has been abused since Constantine married the Church with Paganism and through out anything Hebrew. Keep the Sabbath! And you will then keep the 10 and not 9.
        Shalom
        Rich

      3. We don’t all agree and some people do react in anger unfortunately. It all starts with one comment, and that comment was yours. You can tactfully bring up your point of view without insulting the author of an article. Too often this is what Christians waste time doing. Endless discussions over differing points of view, sprinkled with insults and condescension. I don’t waste my time reading or commenting on sites I don’t agree with. It’s not worth my time to go to some liberal theology site where they tout preterisn and allegorize the entire book of Revelation. We simply won’t ever agree and nobody wins.

    6. Dave, through all the years & many who study Rev in the Bible believe that The Mark Of The Beast will indeed be as God has written it, In The Forehead or Right hand The Name or Number of the Beast 666 .

    7. art simpson

      Sorry Dave, the mark is physical, and is in place before the first day of Daniel’s 7oth week. It is an economic metric, incorporating personal data, recombinant DNA capabilities and dependence upon the fourth kingdom of Satan. The feet and toes of angel antichrist, iron, and man false prophet, clay who imposes the mark, shall seek to destroy all who refuse the mark and overcome them. To be pure and holy fulfills the Father’s desire for more sons and daughters like Jesus Christ.

    8. Shirley

      Dave, you are totally wrong. The MofB is most assuredly literal and can be seen. Carefully read what the Word says about it…….to ”receive a mark in the hand or the forehead”. How will one even know if they do or do not have the MofB if it cannot be seen? Plainly said, the MofB will contain all of your personal information and bank acct. #; how else would one be approved to buy or sell, or denied doing so, otherwise? I can tell you exactly what it is: it is the size of a grain of rice and will be injected by needle into one of these two areas of the body. Period.
      Now, as to ”churches’ they are social clubs serving up a heap of sweet sounding nothings, to tickle the ears, and keep a person lost. They are permitted to exist for the sake of the anti
      christ. You will learn nothing about the bible there. Study to show yourselves approved. In doing so you will quickly find how far off track you really are. The majority of pastors are hirelings and have not fed the sheep. They have not served God, but satan. Is it any wonder why the Word tells us ”Gods judgement will begin at the (so-called) house of God”?? Its because they have misrepresented God, left out the true message of salvation, too cowardly to mention the sin word, the repentance word and told their ”flocks’ they have a lifetime obligation to serve God only, and
      that ‘you must be born again, or you will not see the Kingdom of God”. See? Your pastors never even told you what ‘born again’ even means, did they? Nope.
      Don’t just assume your pastor knows the bible; most do not. So to cut to the chase, you gotta go open it up to the Instruction to us for today, given to us by the preaching of the Apostles, which is from Romans to Revelation, and you better do it fast. Real quick, just look at what Paul told the Church at Corinth (2 Cor. 6:11-18). Or the Ephesians in 5:11. Wake up! Your pastors don’t preach this stuff. Quit sipping milk like a baby ! Chew on some real meat…………….or you won’t like your eternity.

    9. Dave,,,I don’t agree with you. If the “mark” in Rev. 13 is spiritual how will they know who don’t have the “mark”. It says those who don’t have the mark can’t buy or sell and will be killed. They can’t “kill” a spirit ! The Motb is literal,, connected to the global brain. You can think as you want but some day soon you will see…….

  3. M&D

    Well said watchman 73 ; direct and to the point! Today’s church services are primarily self-help seminars sprinkled with a ton of self-esteem and entertainment; a perfect fit for this generation and just in time as well, and you’re right, most pastors are CHOOSING to ignore the full gospel for the sake of numbers and money. Perfect for the one world religion which we see forming today. May the Lord bless you for all your hard work

  4. Yes this goes right in Lock Step what the Holy Spirit has been showing and telling me. But most of all I am told and shown that there is a Great Urgency that time is almost up and we need to double even triple our efforts to bring our family and friends to the saving grace of Jesus. I have been shown glimpses of the Tribulation and it will literally be HELL on earth. I don’t have the room to describe it all here. PLEASE tell your loved ones how very important this is as time is almost up. Have you noticed just how many Rapture dreams there are on YOUTUBE, something is up, yes the Rapture is at hand. I myself have had a very vivid Rapture dream, it’s on my web site also. You can see my prophetic dreams and visions at: http://www.iplantosurvive.info Just scroll down they are near the bottom of the page.

    1. Tony Lamb, Oh! Yes! I see, I see & moan & groan seeing those in my own Family can’t see the hand writing on the wall, the time is growing near, Repentance & Accepting Jesus The most important Prep you can make!

      Have your Soul, your Heart, Mind & soul given to Jesus, “For what does it gain if you have all the World has to give, but lose your Soul”.

      Some Snatched from the Fire, by stern boldly spoken words, Will you be spending Eternity in Hell or Heaven, Jesus or Satan God gives Us our own free will !

      It will be Your Free Will that will take you to heaven or Hell, the time is nearing ,darkness will cover the Earth when no man can work,

      Accept Jesus while He is near, & God said, “Pray you be worthy to escape what’s coming on the Earth “, All Hell is about to be poured out on the Earth,

      No one knows but God when the Last call will come to any of you, The Last call to accept Jesus . God say’s when a new Soul comes to Jesus all the Angel’s in Heaven Sing, Will they be singing for you this day? I pray so in Jesus Name for He love you !

    I see the RFID chip being pushed to no end. I agree it’s bad, and very intrusive (which I will never take), but try another viewpoint:
    I was always under the notion from church/sunday school that we all were getting bar coded, and lining up for guillotines. If you look at Revelation from an Islamic standpoint, it makes much more sense.
    4 horsemen of the apocalypse – white, red, black, green (green is from the original greek)
    4 colors of islam – white, red, black, green
    Green horseman says 25% of the planet will rise up to kill others.
    25% of the world today is Islamic
    Revelation says Christians get their heads lopped off
    Islam teaches to lop heads off the infidels
    666 in the original written Greek looks like allah is god in today’s arabic
    ISIS is wearing allah is god on their arms and foreheads as armbands.
    Revelation states not to eat food offered to other gods
    Islam still does Halal (offering their sacrifice to their god)
    Too many coincidences if you ask me!
    Also, look at Isaiah 5:20, when it says woe to those who call evil good, and good evil. Aside from the obvious we all know, it also could be referencing Islam. The narrative today that is being pushed, is that Christianity is bad, and Islam is good…..good is becoming bad, and bad is becoming good.

    1. old bat

      i agree sheep, that islam will be involved here. the pale horse is a green one. and of course that the mark is a real mark/insert thing. i dont believe in pretrib rapture tho. pray for pre and plan for post is my motto, and i dont see it happening before mid trib, because there is verse that indicates that we will see the beast on the throne, which happens mid trib timeframe. or something similar. i can’t remember the verse off the top of my head. menopause memory and all.

  6. ALL the prophecy’s that have come true in the Bible have come true literally so why not the mark of the beast. After all how else could just an observer look and tell if you have the ‘mark’ or not. Bar Code, RFID, genetic implant & upgrade what ever it is it’s coming and soon.
    My money is the RFID chip AND a genetic upgrade to your DNA and at first it will only cost you $99.00 and it will have a TON of benefits. Longer life, smarter, heal faster, it will even cure some diseases, and many other things all the young people will run to the NEW technology after all it’s how you become a “Super Hero” literally. But once they take the Mark their fate is sealed.

      the singularity. parents pressured to get it for their kids because failing to do so will put them at a very big disadvantage.

  7. Henry

    As I get older, I find that I’m more concerned with salvation than just how everything is going to go down, since there are sooo many interpretations of eschatological events. Yes, we need to be aware of things to avoid…the mark. But, we also need to be aware of what “sin” is to especially avoid this:
    4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
    (1 Jn 3:4)
    How many pastors teach this? Zip! I find further confirmation of this throughout the NT…but since the subject is “the mark” in Revelation, let’s look at a verse from that book. Do you think you are a “saint”?
    12 Here is the patience of the SAINTS: here are THEY that KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD (Torah), and the FAITH OF JESUS. (Rev 14:12)
    Thus we have the words of Yeshua, Himself:
    21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
    22 Many (BELIEVERS) will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
    23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (ANOMIA – LAWLESSNESS).
    Yes indeed, time is short!
    Shalom

    1. I agree. That is really the basis of my frustration. It’s the fact that prophecy actually leads one to Holy living. We need to be convicted of our sin and moved to repentance to bring us to true salvation. Unfortunately so many only think they’re saved. Thank you fir commenting. God bless and MARANATHA!

      1. Shirley

        watchman, how true, how true. Even Billy Graham said, when asked if he was saved, he answered ”well, I hope so”.
        Yes, it takes being convicted of sin, and it will prick one’s heart, which moves them to repentance, which takes one to salvation. That is scripture. Preaching some ‘love gospel’ to the unsaved only hinders the holy spirit from convicting them. That is the danger of injecting words of ”love’ into any salvation message. This running around lying to the unsaved ‘that Jesus loves them” is way out of line. This is not about satisfying the love starved; its about their S O U L.
        Jesus said ‘I love them that love Me”. And he said ”if you love Me, then keep my commands”.
        So obedience to the Lord is what warrants His love. He said ”why do you call Me Lord, when you do not DO WHAT I say”.
        (I know we’re all getting kinda of harsh here, but time is of the essence now)

  8. steve

    So if weak modern translations of the bible are in large part responsible for the lack of truth opposed to what, that most churches you claim are the problem use the King James nonetheless??? You might want to give that idea you clearly alluded to some more diligence.

    1. Easy now, let’s not speak to one another in a way we wouldn’t dare if we were toe to toe. Most modern churches actually avoid the KJV. Even then, not saying you can’t be saved reading any other translation, just that there are some major changes and items minimized or omitted completely. There are many reasons why people like soft gospel and avoiding scripture. In fact, some of the comments today validate and confirm how late the hour is. People are offended by what I say. So be it. He’s coming soon!

      1. Henry

        I use the KJV…not because it’s the easiest to understand, but because it’s linked to the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance and along with the Hebrew-Greek Interlinear Bible, this allows me to study God’s Word more closely. All languages are living things…they change. So, our understanding of Scripture is skewed by our lack of proximity to the original language of the time. We believe that original language to be Hebrew / Aramaic and not Greek. Therefore, our studies require that we look through the Greek to a Hebrew / Aramaic substrate. This unscrambles many seemingly contradictory passages. Example: Rom 2:13 vs Rom 3:28; law = Torah, works / deeds of the law = Oral Law / Mishnah / Talmud. This “dichotomy of expression” is found over and over in the NT. There is a distinction to be made between the two that escapes most readers of the NT. Thus, Paul is NOT coming against Law / Torah, but rather, against Oral Law / Mishnah / Talmud / traditions of the fathers / Jewish Law / etc.

        Shalom

      2. Shirley

        Jesus was the Rock of Offense. And Paul said ”haveI now become your enemy because I tell you the Truth”? So we do not concern ourselves with those that get offended by the Truth. It just is what it is, we didn’t write it, but we tell it like it is. We do not have the authority to change it just because people are offended by it. Gal. 1 ‘for if we become people pleasers, we cannot be a servant of God’. (its a no-brainer)

  9. Jeffrey Rodriguez

    We are at the end of the age and I am praying that God will do something super naturally to bring more of the lost back into His sheepfold. I get tired of Christians saying not to judge. We are called to Judge as long as we are not being hypocrites when we give people Truth!

    1. Henry

      Yes, we are to judge righteous judgement according to the Word of God.

      Eschatology is NOT my strong suite (and I could certainly be wrong here), but it seems to me that an event WILL occur that will wake many up. It is possible, in my understanding, that we are rapidly approaching the end of the seventh kingdom (the American empire) and the beginning of the eighth that will only last seven years. Thus, the American empire will fall…and this might be a sign to many. I’m not happy with this understanding just as the prophets of Israel did not take pleasure in the judgments that were to fall on her. But God is working His Will to the good of those that believe in Him and believe Him….this is Faith.

      Shalom

    2. Shirley

      Jeffrey, oh you can say that again! I too have grown weary of the ”oh you’re not supposed
      to judge” nonsense. God tells us ”judge ALL things, using righteous judgement”……which
      means to judge according to the bible. If the bible says don’t steal, then we say one is
      wrong to steal. And so we do that with ALL things. Too many try to use the ”judge not
      or else you will be judged”. But the error in that is in not reading the entire passage.
      Which says ”go make sure you don’t have any splinters in your own eye”, take them
      out first, if you have any, then you are fit to Judge.
      In fact Gods Word says something like ”whats wrong with you? Are you too stupid to judge?”
      (I don’t have time right now to go look it up, but thats what it does amount to, lol)

    3. Shirley

      Jeffrey, God doesn’t need to do anything supernatural to get people’s attention. All they have to do is look all around and they can SEE the world is about to explode is so many ways. Today, there is not one single thing right about anything in this world. If that isn’t enough to cause a person to wonder where they are going, then nothing is going to get their attention. The ”good stuff” doesn’t happen for a person until AFTER they face their sin state, fess up to it, face reality here.
      DAVE: When people start whining around about the behavior of Christians, then that speaks volumes. You are trying to promote ”political correctness” and you gotta stop listening to the ways of the world. I can tell them what they can do with that crap! Jesus was NOT politically correct and even his Behavior would not be approved by people like you. He told his people to go get his enemies, bring them to him and slay them in front of Him ! He called people all sorts of names, like dogs, whoremongers, whores, etc.etc. The real Jesus of the Real Bible was NOT some Mr. Nice Guy ! In fact, He is about to show his really bad side, pouring out his Wrath of Judgement upon a very wicked depraved world. The Truth is NOT pretty, real Christians are NOT sweety pies catering to the whims of cry babies. Time to grow up, the world is about to light up like the 4th of July x 1000. Mens hearts will be failing them for what they see coming upon the earth. It will be like no day has ever been seen before.

  10. Eckbach

    If you were as watchful as you think you are you would not use “Maranatha” as you use it.
    “maranatha” is used one time in scripture. It is a Chaldean (Aramaic) word and it does not mean what most Christians (including James Strong) think it means.
    If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha. 1 Cor 16:22
    “Anathema Maranatha” is a tautology.
    “Mara” means “bitter,” “rebellion” It comes from the also Hebrew letter M (mah-water) and R (rosh-head) or headwaters. Headwaters are frequently stagnant and considered “bitter.”
    “Call me not Naomi, call me Mara, for the Almighty hath dealt bitterly (marar) with me.” Ruth 1:20 https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H4755&t=KJV&ss=1
    Look at the context of 1 Cor 16:22. It is the only thing that makes sense. When you use the word “Maranatha” you are saying “a bitter rebel to be destroyed.”

    Natha is part of A-nathema.

    1. Oh thank you so much for kindly schooling me on that. I’m curious: how watchful do you think that I think I am? Seriously, why are you hanging around here? Do you just show up on sites to give folks an intellectual kick in the crotch? You’ve told me nothing I haven’t already read before. It’s understood that MARANATHA was a watch word that early Christians used to say our Lord is coming, and that is simply all I mean. Good try though. I know you’re trying to be as insulting and demeaning as possible but I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR FOOLISHNESS! I’m not exactly sure what part of my article bothered you, but apparently you’d like to assassinate my character instead of commenting about the content. The end is near and Jesus is coming back as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah! All of this nonsense will someday be over, praise God!

  11. Thanks Watchman73
    What you point out is sad, but not every believer, leader or pastor is led by His Spirit. I believe God is tired of those who know all about the book but have no fruit born of His Spirit.
    The Holy Spirit is the most important asset the Bride has in this earth. He is the revelation of scripture and the empowerment of the life in Christ. If He were welcomed to lead our fellowship, things would be different.

    1. Thank you and amen! You can tell which preachers are led by the Holy Spirit. The gospel they preach is so simple and direct. It cuts to the heart of men and brings sorrowful repentance. I hear people talk about the Holy Spirit all the time, but more rarely do I see His presence amongst them. So many have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof. You’re so right, if the Holy Spirit was welcomed, things would be different. There would be great power and love and discernment amongst us. There would also be deliverance from sin. God bless you!

        Watchman, when pastors buy their sermons which are written by writers who are unsaved but are good scholars perhaps, then the sermon is already set in place, kicking the Holy Spirit out of the mix. So He is not welcomed nor present. Or pastors prepare ahead of time and write their own sermons, or at least have notes and bookmarks, same outcome.
        Real sermons are meant to be unprepared and let God speak thru the pastor according to what needs to be said to those particular people in attendance at the time. That doesn’t happen anymore. But we know why.
        I’m not a pastor, nor do I give sermons, but I sure know what its like to have God speak the Words He wants said. Its the most awesome experience one can have. Especially when you get confirmation from the one who was to hear it, right afterwards and you learned how perfectly the words fit the situation at hand.
        Watchman, you’re doing a superb job, keep up the good work.

  12. the mark is not physical. Was Gods mark referenced in Deutoronomy 6:1-8 and Exodus 13:7-9 physical? Plus, does it make sense to you that the issue of salvation would come down to whether you accepted some mark that had to do with whether you can buy or sell things? Really? That’s the issue of salvation in the last days? Of course that’s ridiculous. Its about those who worrhip God with Gods commandments (Rev 14:12, Rev 12:17) vs those who worship with man made teachings.

    One should understand who the beast of Revelation 13 is first. The beast in Revelation 13 is the same as the little horn of Daniel 7, which is also related to Daniel 2. So do you understand who fulfilled these prophecies already? Only then can you realize what the mark of the “beast” is.

  13. Timothy

    The Mark of the Beast will be something that is far more subtle than being chipped. It’s our “thoughts”(In the forehead) and our “deeds”(in the hand) that will determine our fate. Scripture tells us that only God knows our thoughts and deeds, therefore he will know who has received the mark. The Vatican is pushing for an “International Day of Rest” on Sunday, the first day of the week, not the Biblical Sabbath(sunset Friday-sunset Saturday). And the false prophet pope francis, is declaring that all world religions worship the same God. Blasphemy!! Most people will accept these “ideas” and receive the “mark” in their foreheads. Others won’t like these ideas, but will be afraid to say so and “go along” with it anyway, and receive the “mark” in their hand. All businesses will have to close on Sunday, and no man will be able to buy or sell. The few who refuse to accept this “one world religion” and defend God’s, truth will be seen as intolerant, and hateful, and will be persecuted and put to death. And all who have the beast’s(papacy) mark will think this is glorifying their false “god”.
    By Grace Alone, through Faith Alone, in Christ Alone, will we receive God’s Seal, the Holy Spirit!

    1. I’m sorry my friend, but a future Sunday Law that SDA’s constantly preach, is not going to happen. This issue was already fulfilled with the Blue Laws. The prophecy is already over. Ellen G White is not the last prophet nor the 2nd coming Christ who has already come in these last days. All must go to the Spirit and the Bride to receive the water of life (salvation) in these last days as prophesied in Revelation 22:17. By the way, can the church give water of life (salvation)? No they cannot, then ask yourself who the bride in the context of Revelation must be.

  14. Lorelei Vision

    All of this arguing over interpretation – that is what the Devil wants! He wants us divided and at each other’s throats, soul-deep in our own pride, unwilling to see the Truth of God’s word. How clever, and how terrible that most of us will fall into our own prideful trap, striving to be right, striving to seem clever and brilliant, striving to know so we can laud our elevated intelligence over others. How shameful, our prideful, how arrogant and oh-so-in-godlike!
    The author is correct, our nation is swirling down the tubes and our Pastors and Preachers (most of them) say nothing. They do not warn the people of the real tragedies that are coming, that will soon be upon us. They do not talk about the sinful lifestyle that America is immersed itself in. They do not ask people to repent. All they do is help people embrace their vomit, they watch them swim in it and throw up their arms in glee. And what do the rest of us do, those of us who are “awake”? We sit here and argue. Brilliant!!!
    We are in the last days, and we need to warn others so that they may know Jesus Christ before it is too late. It is He who knows all, not us. It is He who will give us refuge when the time comes upon us, not those that are arguing about how much they think they know of God’s word. Seek Him today, seek His Face, stay close to Him in these times, seek to be His humble servant – putting pride and ego aside.
    God Bless and thank you for the well-written article.

    1. Amen! Thank you for taking time to comment. You’re 100% right. We waste precious time and energy in the comments section trying to be right. We see through a glass darkly so we shouldn’t be so dogmatic on certain issues. I’m sick of people in leadership not doing there all to save and to warn the people, and that’s where I get absolutely certain about my position. God bless you and all of our other brothers and sisters that are out there struggling to survive snd not be choked out by the tares. MARANATHA!

    2. If people who call themselves Christians are teaching false doctrine, then that pleases the devil. They need to be exposed, lest more people be deceived and looking for something that is not coming. The issue with the mark of the beast can be used to satan’s advantage by stirring up many false teachers to teach something that leads one astray from the real issue at hand.

      And that is what is happening in this case. The issue of salvation, is whether we keep God’s commands (follow God), or keep man made pagan customs that all the churches keep today (follow satan). This is why those with the mark of the beast cannot be saved.

      Does is makes sense that some economic issue and some enforcement of micro chips will determine everyone’s salvation? Of course its non-sense, it one gives it some thought. Many false teachers in these last days as Jesus prophesied. And I will call them out every day.

      1. The intercession of the Holy Spirit is calling for unity in these last days. It is the reiteration of the prayer of Jesus before he suffered and died on our behalf, that we be one in Him as He was one with the Father.
        I live off of His intercession in repentance.
        With after and behind Him. He causes me to ponder, consider and heed His living word spoken to lead us into being one in Him as He is one with the Father and the Son. It is beautiful and glorious to His name to surrender and follow as a child. How might we find agreement to live off of His intercession in repentance and be unified together in the Son for His glory?
