It is those who believe in Messiah Yahshua and keep His commandments that will be persecuted (Revelation 12:17; 14:12). It is those who keep the commandments and belief in Yahshua who will over come the mark of the beast (Revelation 20:4) for they will have been marked with the mark of YHWH.
Does “NOT” keeping the commandments have anything to do with the MARK?
In my studies on this, every one is convinced that this mark is a RFID chip or a Tattoo, which very well could be a way of enforcing the mark, since we carry many items on our person already that have some sort of chip in them already. However how could this be? so blatant in your face? This Mark is not going to be something that they are familiar with. Correct me if I am wrong. Most Christians indeed break the 4th commandment every time they step into a Sunday Church,(enforcement of Sunday worship on all) because they believe the commandments/law were done away with at the Crucifixion. They have even taken it on their own to revise the commandments by eliminating the 2nd or 4th and breaking up one to make 10 so no one would ever know the difference.
THE NAME SABBATH
In the word “Sabbath” is found “Seal of the Father’
Two words: SAB and BATH
Root of Sab = Ab = Father
SAB = Learned Master
SAHIB = Revered Sir
Root of ATH = OTH = SIGN
Prefix “B” indicated DWELLING PLACE (as in Bethlehem – dwelling or house or bread.)
SABBATH = THE DWELLING PLACE OF THE SIGN OR THE SEAL OF THE FATHER
“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: 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
Why is this mark so important, and what are the actual features of a mark? Have you ever signed a document to validate or confirm that it is authentic? Have you ever given your “seal of approval” on something? Have you ever “marked” an item of yours as proof of ownership? In government, this is a fact of life. As we know, signing a document actually authenticates that document. An official seal or signature always has three distinct features:
(1) The name of the official
(2) The title
(3) The territory
So when the President of the United States signs a bill into law, he will sign it,
1.Name “Bill Clinton” eg.
3.Territory “of the United States of America”
EVERY document must be signed or sealed in this manner for it to be an official legal document.
There is a government in heaven,(Isaiah 9:6) and God’s legal document is His Law, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS! Look in the midst of the Commandments and you’ll find the Seal of God! “For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, ….” Exodus 20:11
(1) HIS NAME = THE LORD (“I am the Lord: that is my name”Isaiah 42:8)
(2) HIS TITLE = CREATOR (Notice, “the LORD made” in above verse)
(3) HIS TERRITORY = HEAVEN AND EARTH (Notice, “Heaven and earth” in above verse)
Seeing how God has already SEALED the true Sabbath as His Sign, or “mark”. The devil’s only recourse is to “counterfeit” his own Sabbath as a sign, or mark of dominion as a god! It’s really very easy to spot.
In Exodus 31:13 we see the Lord God telling us that, “Verily my Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations.”
This verse allows us to realize why the devil’s been working so hard at hiding the truth about the Sabbath. It’s God’s sign! It’s God’s seal of approval! It’s God’s mark of ownership! Please correct me if I am wrong about this, or YHVH will put me back in the fire 😆
Re: Pre-Trib~ what is being preached; does it not seem obvious that they are using this as a tool to keep Christians complacent in some ways as they will then say
“It doesn’t matter He is coming to get us before all Hell breaks loose”
I’m a scripturalist (new word), 😉 because I belong to no religion, no denomination. I believe in YHVH, the one True God and Our Holy King.
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
This is why people do not keep the commandments. These verses have been twisted to suit the distorted twisted minds of those who insist on believing the lie that the wolves in sheep’s clothing teach in the pulpit.
The first 4 commandments teach us how to love God, and the last 6 teach us how to love one another.~quoted from another post.
The above verses are templates/Headers for the 10 commandments written first on stone and then in our hearts. Yet People still transgress.
The above scenario that I have brought forth could be something worth thinking about as in the English version of Sabbath, however the Hebrew translation and meanings of Shabbat are totally different. I still believe that we need to keep the commandments. Every single one of them.
