Revelation 14 v 9 – 11 Rev: 16 v 1-2 KJV
And a third angel followed them , saying with a loud voice, if any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand. The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of indignation: and he shall be tormented with fire and brimestone in the presence of the Holy angles and in the presence of the lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day or night who worship the beast and his image and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth: and there fell a noisesome and grevious sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast and upon them which worshipped his image.
As you will note once more the Wrath of God is obvious upon the people who are rejecting God. God has no choice, after all He is the creator of this earth and everything in it: in my opinion He is extremly good and patient with us. If I was God I won’t tolerate this violation of my creation but He the creator sees beyond our Stupidity and LOVES us extremly, hence his tolerance. He knows we are spiritual and spirit don’t die that is why we are getting all these warnings.
Just as God has said in Revelation those of us who reject his love for us will be tormented day and night in His presence and I expect those of us who accept his love and become his children through Jesus Christ will be with Him and will see our tormented fellowmen in Hell as well. In my opinion we won’t be feeling sorry for them but glad and rejoicing that we are not there with them. I expect just as they are tormented continuosly; we are rejoicing continuously as well.
This brings to mind Jesus’ statement in the Gospel of Luke 16 v 19 regarding the richman looking up from Hell and saw the beggar Lazarus in Abraham’s bosom and asked him to send Lazarus to touch his tongue with cold water. Abraham told him there is a great gulf between them that no one could cross over on either side.
The mark of the beast is on people who see idolatry/money as their saviour, rather than Jesus Christ (God) whose blood was shed as a once for all sacrifice to save us from Hell. This is the love that God has for us and his mark will be on those who accept him. All people has a choice to accept him or reject him, however if they don’t hear the Gospel how could they make a choice?
In my opinion time is short and things are Serious and real Christians have to tell the Truth: God is real and not mocked: Christians have to forget about political correctness and stand firm on Jesus’ word.
People are hungry for the truth and if Christians are more concern for their own welfare and soften the Gospel in order to find favour among our fellowmen then our world is in real trouble: Jesus did say to find favour with our enemies but that means to love our enemies and loving our enemies means telling them the truth in order to save them from eternal destruction.
A real Christian is blessed with Joy, peace, love, contentment, longsuffering and so on while on earth, hence material things are secondary and this will be the same characteristics he/she will be going into eternity with. A christian treasures are already stored in eternity and won’t need material things there.
