While the Bible talks about events in the past, such as Jesus’ life, teachings, death, resurrection and his evangelical message, his passing on to heaven also gave his disciples the spotlight so that they could also focus on the things to come in the near future.
Yes, both the Old and the New Testament speak of prophecies that will come to pass in our times, and one of them is the mark of the beast that has been clearly described in the Book of Revelation. It is a time when people who live on Earth will have to take a mark that will be issued by a world leader who will control the entire world under his power.
While there is an antichrist conspiracy or two afoot these days, there is very little evidence to suggest that it has become mandatory for people to take if they want to live. If you refuse to worship the antichrist, this will result in physical death.
But is the “mark” present in our times?
The truth is that while the technology for this mark to be issued out is available or present, it doesn’t seem as if the ‘beast’ (the antichrist as described in the Bible) is in power to initiate such a move. Alternatively, you cannot receive this mark by accident as it is only by your willingness to accept that you will live or die.
While there are many preachers that preach otherwise, receiving the mark of the antichrist is not one that is forgiven so you must be very sure that you do not take it.
If you wish to understand more about this mark, the Bible can be a wonderful guide as to help you see how the events leading to this mark will happen.
