Five Disciples and the First Miracle

#887: Hello again folks! Sometimes you can read the Bible and yet, after reading a certain passage very many times, you can still learn something new - just like I did just the other day. It was amazing for this writer to discover (maybe even rediscover!) in the first chapter of the John's gospel how the disciples of Jesus began their journey of discovery.

I simply didn't realize that the day after John the Baptist had testified of the LORD Jesus Christ, that one of the "two of his disciples" (John 1:35) "who heard him speak (and) followed him" (John 1:37) was Andrew who went to find his brother Simon (Peter) before Philip and Nathaniel were to join them. I believe that the other disciple of John the Baptist was John himself (John 19:35; John 21:24) so there may well have been a quintet of disciples with Jesus to witness His first miracle (John 2:11) during a certain wedding in Cana on "the third day" afterward (John 2:1). Perhaps this is why Jesus later declared: "Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother." (Matthew 12:49-50)

Why is this important? Because every disciple of Jesus starts somewhere to write their story and runs their race (Hebrews 12:1) thereafter when He calls them and/or they call on the name of the LORD. I'm reminded of Jesus' words in Matthew 22:14: "For many are called, but few are chosen". If nothing else, we should take time every day to thank God for Jesus and the Salvation that He is working in us.

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." ~ Jeremiah 29:11

Real Bereans (Acts 17:11) are truly needed, watchmen must WARN, evangelists must COMPEL, do not be DECEIVED and WATCH that PERIPHERY!

He Causes All

"He causes ALL, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is six hundred six score and six (666)." ~ Revelation 13:16-18

#886: The Book of Revelation is intriguing to many. The ultimate in prophetic writings, inspired by the Holy Spirit and dictated to the Apostle John by the LORD Jesus Christ Himself, being a mixture of chronological events separated by parentheses and told in somewhat familiar imagery to those acquainted with the Book of Daniel and the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21). Most adherents to the pretribulation rapture theory think it largely included in the Bible for the Jewish people or what they term the tribulation saints. However, in truth, it - like the rest of the Word of God - is meant for ALL generations of Christians included the last one before the second parousia of the LORD Jesus Christ. The reader is warned that believers will be massively persecuted during the last seven years of the present age with many being beheaded for their faith and loyalty to their Lord, especially during the time of the fifth seal (Revelation 6:9-11).

With that in mind, when we read verse 16 of Revelation chapter thirteen (13) that the notorious, soon-to-be-revealed Antichrist will cause ALL (not some) to take the dreaded mark of the beast except, of course, those who love their Lord. There is a very good reason why the Book of Revelation is part of the canon of scripture and why there is a warning in chapter 22 (verses  18-19) to anyone who seeks to either add to or remove any part of it. The Book of Revelation is presented to guide and assist believers through that time of testing because they will be there for most of it! So when John writes "He causes all" he means what he says and says what he means. The Greek word for causes is ποιέω (poieō; Strongs #4160) which essentially means 'make' in this context with the idea of force or urging. The Greek word for all is πᾶς (pas; Strongs #3956) which can mean 'each', 'every', 'any', 'all' or 'everyone' in this context. This fully supports the remainder of verse 16 which states that "both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave" are included in this end time edict with no exceptions. The choice will be stark for the whole world but not for true believers, who will be present right up until the true timing of the rapture, at some point after the sixth seal.

Whatever the mark of the beast turns out to be (likely to be a wide ranging extension of the so-called health passport  combining all financial transactions with worship of the Antichrist), please make yourself ready for the tough times ahead and strengthen your walk with your Lord and your Heavenly Father because those days will soon become these days. 

This is a time for watchmen to warn, for many to pray and for all to investigate for themselves (be Bereans). Time is short ... do not waste it whilst your freedoms are being gradually eroded.

The Mark of the Beast Has Arrived

 #885: Hello again folks! Many (but not enough) Christians, if not many non-believers, will be familiar with what the Book of Revelation says about the Mark of the Beast ...

"He [the second beast who comes up out of the earth with two horns like a lamb who speaks like a dragon] causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666." (Rev. 13:16-18)

"Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his handhe himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name." (Rev. 14:9-11)

You might ask why I've entitled this article: "The Mark of the Beast Has Arrived". This is no throwaway statement or prediction. As the threat of Bill Gates' sinister if not deadly new DNA/RNA altering vaccine nears and increases, details of the delivery method(s) continue to be unveiled. Modena (who have never before developed products intended for human usage) are reported to be developing a 'solution' that delivers the so-called vaccine in a microneedle patch that will be embedded in the skin and also leave an invisible marker only detectable by ultra-violet light. Whilst public objections to the vaccine need to be increasing in volume, there are a few further points that need to be amplified.

The Greek word for the English word "mark" found in the above scriptures is χάραγμα or charagma. According to Strong's Concordance (#5480) it means a stamp or an impress. Think about it! The Modena methodology for vaccine delivery is a microneedle patch or stamp or impress that will permanently mark the skin. But it will do much more than physically affect your body. The vaccine will also modify the RNA strands within your DNA meaning that anyone who receives it will become a genetically modified human. The patent for this evil potion is even numbered 60606. Have you woken up yet? 

The patch appears to be the preferred option for several governments. If that's not enough to get your attention then consider this: Despite the lockdown(s), mass house arrests and removal of your basic human rights right now, even the worst governments and most threatening laws will pale in comparison to when the Antichrist arises and fools most of the world (by false peace and his many lies) into giving him absolute control before he turns nasty and demands absolute worship and the taking up of the dreaded mark. My point is that the Modena vaccine may well be a key component of the impending Orwellian health passport which will allow or prevent folks from many events and activities depending on whether you have it, have been tested or have refused it.

It is therefore not much of an stretch to imagine a world dictator banning any financial transactions (buying and selling) if you are not only non-vaccinated but also invoking the death sentence if you refuse to submit to or worship him. The vaccines and the 5G digital framework being installed while you are cowering in your mask and in your home is the foundation if not the prototype and/or beginning of the Mark of the Beast. There are many implications of this truth to those who believe the pre-tribulation rapture myth for it is a distinct possibility that we are already in the Beginning or Sorrows element  of the Tribulation period, particularly when you consider the United Nations Agenda 2030 and several other postulated significant dates.

This is a time for watchmen to warn, for many to pray and for all to investigate for themselves (be Bereans). Time is short ... do not waste it whilst your freedoms are being gradually eroded.

Recommended: Escape From The Demonic To Christ And Freedom (Bob Mitchell)

#884: Hello again folks! Regular (and casual) readers of my writings will know that you will regularly be alerted to any new book offerings from my good friend Bob Mitchell. Earlier this year, he published "Escape From The Demonic To Christ And Freedom" (ISBN-13: 979-8666803820), which is a kind of remix of his excellent autobiographical testimony "Journey Into The Light" and well worth perusing. 

I read (and often reson ated with) this 94 page paperback in just a few hours (as I couldn't put it down as soon as I started reading the first few paragraphs). It's uplifting, interesting and ultimately triumphant as Bob recalls his spiritual journey and the many blessings that he has received from the LORD Jesus Christ through the years. And the good news is that you can order the book from amazon.co.uk for just £4.80 via this link thus: 


We also recommend that you also consider these other Bob Mitchell books too:
