Boy, the past few days have given us plenty of stunning images and photos ripe with prophetic symbolism. Well, to my discerning eye anyway.
What's the first thing that comes to mind when you look at this photo?
For me, I recalled the following:
Revelation 13:16-18 -- "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 666."
Revelation 14:9-10 -- "If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God's fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath."
Revelation 20:4 -- "Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years."
Look, I know this isn't the actual, prophesied Mark of the Beast per se so please don't think that's what this entry is about or trying to claim.
I've just been tuned in lately and very sensitive to the unusual events and images that have prompted me to think about such things. Whenever that happens I want to write about it here for all of you.
I'll leave you with this thought: How surreal (seems I've been using that word a lot these days!) is it that earlier today I reported on the One World Economy and its potential monetary unit as presented to the world courtesy of Russia's leader, and now we have a new image later in the day that strikes a chord with the Mark of the Beast system, which is intricately linked to the One Word Economy and resulting One World Currency?
That, my friends, is what "watching" is all about. Please continue to join me in this noble pursuit because now more than ever we must warn the world about what is standing on our doorstep.
What We're Praying/Talking About
Our faith in action, or our small contribution in trying to apply what we're taught in Hebrews 5-6 and James 2:17-26 for the benefit of our dear brothers and sisters within the Body of Christ...
