The majority of Christians in ignorance are not keeping this special Commandment and so God has been robbed of the worship He desires on the day that He blessed and sanctified at creation because of what Satan did through this Papal apostate Church. This is why it is coming down to a very climactic and final showdown on this issue of whom we are going to obey and give our allegiance to. In the end, God is going to seal those with His mark that keep His Ten Commandment law while those who do not obey God and follow the mark of the Catholic Church and give their allegiance to them, will get their mark. That is, the mark of the Catholic Church, or should we say the mark of the beast. Do you think God cares if we obey the commandments of man rather than His Commandments? You’d better believe He does.
Mark 7:6-9 says, “Jesus answered them, “How right Isaiah was when he prophesied about you! You are hypocrites, just as he wrote: ’These people, says God, honor me with their words, but their heart is really far away from me. It is no use for them to worship me, because they teach human rules as though they were my laws!’ “You put aside God’s command and obey human teachings.” And Jesus continued, “You have a clever way of rejecting God’s law in order to uphold your own teaching.”
Keep in mind all the following points and information when you read the passage below on the mark of the beast. God calls the Catholic Church Babylon and we have now seen why. 666 is the number of a man from the Catholic Church and 666 comes from pagan god sun worship and the worship of God was changed to the day of the sun by the Catholic Church. So what is God trying to tell us about 666? What became of sun worship? SUN-day - Dies solis (Latin) which means “day of the sun.” Satan desired to be worshipped as God with his own day of worship and knows God detests sun worship because it is idolatry. But the next page on the history also reveals that Sunday was a day of Satan worship. Satan gave power to the Papal Church and instituted the day of the sun, being SUN-day as that is also his day. The Church ended up worshipping on the day of the SUN god instead of worshipping the SON of God on His day. Satan got the worship he desired and God missed out. See Isaiah 14:12-14. The mark of the beast is about worship and Satan through paganism and the Catholic Church robbed God of the worship He desired for MOST of Church history. If you are starting to see the bigger picture, than you should understand why this is coming down to a final and climactic event over the mark of the Catholic Church and whom we are going to worship.
The fourth Commandment defines that it is God we worship and Greek Lexicons say that the phrase in verse 7 that says, “that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters” is a reference to the fourth Commandment. The Catholic Church changed this Commandment that defines who we worship and we are told not to worship the Catholic Church. How would we do that? What Commandment defines worship? Verse 12 says that those who do not get the mark are those who endure tribulation but still keep the Commandments of God. There is no mistake or speculation in that the mark of the beast is about the Ten Commandments since those who do not get the mark endure tribulation but still keep them through faith in Jesus. Did the beast change the Ten Commandments? So those who do not get the mark worship God only and keep His Commandments. So once again, which Commandment defines worship and which Commandment defines who we should not worship? The Roman Catholic Church changed them both! Now without any speculation, read what this passage below really says in regards to the mark of the beast. See also the Roman Catholic Ten Commandments.
Revelation 14:7-12 “Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. [Fourth Commandment reference] 8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon [Papacy] is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. 9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast [Papacy] and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead [mind], or in his hand [actions], 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. 12 Here is the patience [endurance - means to stand fast through tribulation] of the saints: here are they that keep the Commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” Parentheses are added.
Remember that Satan counterfeits most things of God. The mark of the beast is Satan’s counterfeit to the mark of God. Since the mark of the beast is in opposition to the seal of God being His mark, compare the following five points and see if they are in fact a counterfeit and in opposition.
3a. True day of worship comes from the worship of the Son of God. (pro-law)
3b. False day of worship comes from the worship of the Sun god. (anti-law)
4a. God’s Seal is found in His law and His disciples are sealed with His law.
4b. The beast say that their mark was their authority to change the law of God and have the whole Protestant world follow her. See Catholic Quotes.
Points 4 and 5 alone are very clear the mark is about the law of God. And for confirmation: Those who do not get the mark of the beast endure tribulation and keep the Commandments of God. (Revelation 14:12) So simple and clear!
It is because so many have been deceived on the fourth Commandment truth that the majority are going to be deceived on the mark as Jesus said. See quote. If everyone discovered the truth on the fourth Commandment then most would easily see this truth. It is because most fight with all their heart, might and soul to avoid this one special Commandment that they do not. Remember that this is the Mark of the Catholic Church. What have they enforced over the centuries by the death of millions? It was always their religious viewpoint and millions died for keeping this Commandment. Are they going to do it again? They already are in some areas of the world where they can get away with it! Perhaps those rejecting this truth would like to explain why Revelation 14:12 says that those who endure tribulation (those who do not get the mark) keep the Commandments of God through faith in Christ.
Does scripture show God cares about technology that one would receive His most fierce wrath for? What about breaking one of the Ten Commandments that defines He is our God and one Satan had an apostate Church change through paganism so that he could symbolically receive worship in place of God? Would this sin make God angry? Would you receive God’s fiercest wrath if you knowingly chose to follow the commandments of a persecuting power that received its position from Satan, when it is in TOTAL rebellion against God and His LAW? Would this really anger God? This is totally Biblical and not speculation and something that will be a free will decision. This is what the Bible reveals from Genesis to Revelation that God cannot accept and why God frequently punished Israel. The mark of the Roman Catholic Church according to them was that they were able to change the law of God and have almost the WHOLE Protestant world follow them. So does one obey God or man, or should I say God or Satan? What SIGN are you going to follow? The SIGN of God or the SIGN that shows you are giving your allegiance to the beast?
So why is the entire world going to be deceived on the mark of the beast? The answer is simple. Because Satan has deceived the entire world into fighting to avoid one of God’s Commandments that defines we are His children!
**Essential additional reading** We strongly recommend reading the following page on the history of sun and Sunday worship. This page contains highly informative and related material. This eye-opening information also reveals that sun worship started with the worship of Satan.
