beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the images of the beast should be killed.
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.
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Revelation 13: 11-18
The day will come when it will be demanded of us to take on the mark of the beast, by conforming to the world’s system. All of our responsibilities will be taken care of if we bow down and take this offer of worship to control our lives. However, with this acceptance of the devil, the free will that God gave us will be removed along with his guidance for our lives. Houses will be divided and the wheat will be separated from the chaff in this moment of decision.
