The discussion is heating up, some Christians are getting scared that Mark of the Beast may be forced on them. Some school of thought believes that the 5G network is a means those behind the New World Order will achieve their aim of putting the mark on us.
There are questions coming from concerned persons as regards the Mark of the Beast and how believers can avoid it. While I may not have “true or false” answers, I know for sure that the believer in Christ Jesus operates by a different set of rules and certain things shouldn’t bother a strand of our hair. Jesus gave us enough hope and left us with
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”- John 16:33 NIV
It still applies now!
If Jesus really saved me, then he saved me. I’ve got no part to play in staying safe including “accepting or rejecting the mark of the beast”. I can’t have the mark of the beast because the mark of Jesus (seal of the Holy Spirit) is already on me. A tattoo or even a chip can’t give me that mark. Like Paul, I can boldly say
“From now on, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.”- Galatians 6:17 NIV
In the matter of salvation, only I and God were the eligible voters. God offered salvation, I accepted it and the case got closed! No Supreme Court is reviewing it, it was conclusive and finalized. The door that God shuts, no man can open it. I am exclusively sold out to God.
If the mark of Christ is not a tattoo or chip, then no chip or tattoo can take away that mark. In the sense that if a chip is forced into my forehead, brain or hands, I am still secured in Christ. Technology cannot undo the greatest miracle that God displayed on Earth. This is why I can never be wrong if I choose to keep preaching Jesus and him alone. What a comfort we find in the Epistles, let’s read
“And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.” – Ephesians 1:13-14 NIV
From the moment I believed, I was marked with a seal and therefore I am included in Christ Jesus! I can’t be excluded from him and I can’t have the mark of Christ and still have the mark of the beast. This truth brings peace of mind and comfort.
Give me 5G and I’ll still preach the gospel with it. My salvation isn’t dependent on accepting or rejecting it and it is not hinged on taking actions for a possible suppression of it. Where it is harmful to health, I should be concerned but it has no possibility to tamper with my salvation.
We signed up for it, we’ll adapt to the progress. Burning down 5G masts (for spiritual reasons) may be cheer display of ignorance because 4G masts can be upgraded without your notice. Where you there when 2G was upgraded to 3G? Where you there when it was upgraded to 4G?
It is so amazing that even if there is any conspiracy to alter my salvation using technology, those conspiring such are not only ignorant, they are also foolish because this covenant that I am into is a “forever something”. You may destroy the body but you can’t tamper with the soul. Nothing can separate me from God’s love! Not a vaccine, not a chip and not your own thoughts! Jesus is the one keeping the covenant and he is too faithful to fail.
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?”- Romans 8:35 NIV
I am not about getting saved, I am already saved and seated with Christ Jesus and nothing can unseat me, it is a permanent position. He is able to save to the utmost and it applies in every season I find myself. He can’t be my saviour today and then require me to save myself tomorrow. He saves completely as the Bible says.
“Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him because he always lives to intercede for them.”- Hebrews 7:25 NIV
The finished works of Jesus on the cross is enough for me and therefore regardless of the time and season, I can’t be wrong not bothering myself with knowing “if its end-time” for the sake of protecting my salvation because whichever time it is, I am safe. Jesus is my security.
However, knowing it is end-time should only motivate me to do more work for the kingdom, it calls for more ministry and not to get myself saved but to get others saved. If there should be anything I need to bother myself with, it has to be the preaching and teaching of Christ because the end has always been near.
You can be confident in Christ because “Christ in us” is the hope of every believer.
“…Christ in you, the hope of glory. He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end, I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.”- Colossians 1:27-29 NIV
This is the beauty of Christianity.
