Food for Flame

June 30, 2022

Share this article:

  …“If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or upon his hand, he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; Rev. 14:9b

God is very emphatic regarding not taking the Mark of the Beast during the 7-year post-Rapture Tribulation. In no uncertain terms He clearly states that if you take the Mark you will receive His undiluted wrath on earth and go to hell…forever.

“And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” Rev. 14:11

…there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matt. 13:42a

Well, “forever” is a long time to gnash your teeth. But with all the Believers having been whisked away in our Rapturous Great Escape, only a few people will be left behind who understand the ramifications of taking the Mark in the Tribulation.

And the immediate pressure to take this Mark will be immense. Those left behind after the Rapture will be told that to survive they’ll have no choice but to join the system that controls everything, including food.

and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Rev. 13:17

The tribulation begins with mass starvation with billions dying—one fourth the earth (Rev. 6:8). A starving person doesn't think rationally and will do most anything to get food.

But the Mark of the Beast not only covers being able to purchase food, it covers purchasing anything!

Such complete control will compel most to accept the Mark to get into the system in order to have food, shelter and energy.

But taking that Mark will be a short-term solution because if you do, you'll eventually die and split the gates of hell wide open.

Why does God make such a big deal about taking this mark in the first place? Why is a tattoo so damning?

First, it must be noted that you have to take Satan's mark AND worship him. If someone tackles you and forces the mark on you, but you refuse to worship the Beast/Satan, you’re not automatically condemned to hell.

But if you take the mark willingly, and look to the Beast/Satan instead of the Lord Jesus Christ for your substance, you'll burn in an unquenchable fire—forever.

… he [Satan] deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; Rev. 19:20a

people who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his image. Rev. 16:2

And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Matt. 13:50

So it’s quite clear that God will not tolerate someone who takes this mark and worships Satan.

Worshiping another God violates the first of the 10 Commandments.

“You shall have no other gods before Me.” Ex. 20:3

That alone is enough to sink your ship, but in addition God intends to mark us with His name one day in the future.

‘He who overcomes [through the blood of Christ], I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name. Rev. 3:12

God will also give you a new name—a name that only He and you know. It will be written on a white stone. That's pretty cool.

‘...To him who overcomes [through the blood of Christ] I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it.’ Rev. 2:17b

Since Satan knows all this (he reads the Bible) and since he wants to be God, he’ll try to force people in the Tribulation to take his mark.

Unfortunately, those who take Satan up on his offer will be trading short-term food for long-term flame.

These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power 2Th. 1:9

And those who die refusing the Mark, refusing to serve Satan and trusting the Lord for salvation, will live in glory forever.

“They will hunger no longer, nor thirst anymore; nor will the sun beat down on them, nor any heat;” Rev. 7:16

“…and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” Rev. 21:4

So in the post-Rapture 7-Year Tribulation, it’s far better to die trusting the Lord who will take you to glory forever than to live a little longer and burn in horrible flames forever.

And these shall go away into everlasting punishment:but the righteous into life eternal. Matt. 25:46

I don’t know about you, but I’m sure grateful we’ll miss all that!

...choose today whom you will serve: Josh. 24:15b

Therefore comfort one another with these words [about the Rapture taking us before the wrath]. 1Th. 4:18

watch this one first!


The Financial Sabotage of the USA

60-minute video (start at 3-minutes, watch at 1.5 speed)

The months or years before the Rapture is an amazing time to be alive. Believers need to be smart and be aware so we make good decisions.

This video is an honest OPINION of what's happening and I believe the contents are worth discussing. Most of what is presented is not in the mainstream media.

This video covers so much that not everything they say could be true. Things like mass arrests of the bad guys is far-fetched at best. But again, this video will make you think.

One thing to especially pay attention to are their comments regarding gold and silver. Did you know gold is selling in Russia for $2800 an ounce. Here in the U.S. it's selling for $1800. How is that possible?

In all probability the U.S. gold and silver paper market is being manipulated. No one in their right mind believes that all this inflation is affecting everything on the planet EXCEPT gold and silver. Hello.

So it's probable that the price of gold is artificially being held down both to keep the dollar afloat and to also allow for the Globalists/Satanists to purchase gold and silver at a steep discount...expecting that the dollar will eventually collapse.

They can't hold the price of gold and silver down forever, and when it goes, no telling how high it will go. But in actuality, gold and silver won't go up, instead the dollar will go down.

You can easily see this with the inflation currently decimating our dollar. They are telling us inflation is running at 8% or 9%, which is what it was in the late 1970s.

But as we've pointed out in the past(1), if you use the same market factors used in the 1970s, inflation is actually around 16%, and continuing to rise.

So let’s assume it settles at 20% and doesn’t get any worse, as many people are suggesting. That would mean if you have $100 in the bank, next year your hundred dollars is only worth $80.

The next year at 20% inflation, your $80 is only worth $64. And the year after that it will only be worth $52. So in three years, your hundred dollars dropped 50% in value.

And again, that's assuming inflation is not going to get any worse.

The Bible suggests it's wise to divide your assets into seven or eight areas (Ecc. 11:2), so one thing you might consider as you live in these last days is having a portion of your investments in hard assets like gold and silver.

There's an interesting verse in James regarding gold and silver in last days:

Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries which are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments have become moth-eaten. Your gold and your silver have rusted; and their rust will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh like fire. It is in the last days that you have stored up your treasure! James 5:1

So we see that in the last days the rich people are invested in gold and silver.

Granted gold and silver will be worthless in the Tribulation, but until then it apparently is going to be worth more than our paper currency that is backed only by governmental good faith.

Do you have faith that our government will make good decisions? I'm suspect they're not looking out for my best interests!

Again, this is to spur thinking and analysis for Believers. This is not intended to be monetary advice of any kind. Our advice is to think hard about what's actually happening to this country. All we know for sure is that our government and media are lying 24/7.

Where there is no guidance the people fall, but in abundance of counselors there is victory. Prov. 11:14   

The more opinions you get regarding investing the more knowledge you'll gain.

As my friend Tom Cloud once said, there is never a bad investment. There is only a bad time to buy and/or a bad time to sell. And another trusted friend, Rick Gately, says gold is God's money.

And because we're living in the last days, Believers have to balance what we believe to be Biblical truth with the harsh realities of current inflation and even Christian persecution.

We must assume the Rapture could be 12 or more years away, which it could.(2) I personally THINK the Rapture could be sooner, but as a guy with a family I have to financially plan like it's far away.

So watch that video above understanding that it's one of many inputs to consider.
