At least one popular preacher has been saying that you can take the Mark of the Beast and still be saved…
Before you laugh or throw up your hands in disgust, you need
to look at his argument and his reasoning. His thesis is basically this:
It is not the “Unpardonable Sin” spoken of elsewhere in Scripture.
Jesus forgives “all sin.”
There are two separate things in the Scriptures:
Receive the Mark
Worship the Beast
The Scripture indicates that you would need to do both; Receive the Mark AND Worship the Beast before you became lost forever without remission.
If you received the Mark but did not worship the Beast, you could recant and be saved.
Is that possible? Yes.
Is that pushing it? Yes.
What are the problems inherent in that argument?
He could be wrong.
You should never “test God” like that.
The chips that will be used as a “Mark” are already capable of making changes in the DNA of an individual. If your DNA is changed, you become a mixed race person on the level of the Nephilim. You are no longer human and like the Nephilim, you cannot be saved…
The chips today are not a good idea but neither are they the Mark of the Beast. The chip that equals the Mark will be expressly tied to the Antichrist and his kingdom. You will not take it accidentally. It will require an Oath… a pledge of loyalty to the Beast and his system. People cannot buy or sell without that chip. People will desperately want that chip but without the oath… without swearing allegiance to the man and his kingdom, you will not be able to get the chip… No Oath = No chip.
An Oath of Allegiance to the Antichrist is what the Scripture means by worship. You don’t have to feel anything. You don’t have to mean it in your heart. To give that oath is to worship the Beast.
I do not believe that it will be possible to receive the
chip without worshiping the Beast. If that is true, and I am certain that it is,
You will have done both or you will have done neither…
I cannot tell you what to do but if anyone tells me that I
have to swear allegiance to anything or anyone in order to get anything, I am
not going to do it…
