Extra! Extra! Read All About It!
"And the 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 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:...” Revelation 14:9-10
These scriptures describe the dreaded "Mark of the Beast", which so many people view as different things. I am not here to debate what other persons understand the Mark of the Beast to be. Rather, I am here to continue expounding on the statements that I've made and the scriptures as outlined.
We explained to you what the "Seal of God" was, in the April 19th post. We explained that a seal must bear three things: One's name, one's title and the territory over which one resides. This clarifies one's right to stamp a document with authority.
The Seal of God is just the opposite of the Mark of the Beast, and it is placed in the foreheads of the saints. Revelation 7:2-3
You see, the word seal or mark, according to scripture, are used interchangeably according to Ezekiel 20:12 & 20.
Consequently, with our establishing the fact that the Seal of God is His Created Saturday Sabbath, it automatically places the Mark of the Beast as the creation of the Sunday Sabbath, in opposition to God. It is the opposition to God that makes their mark so terrible.
Additionally, we have shown that the Catholic Church was the one responsible for establishing this custom at the Council of Laodicea in AD 363. Among the most important topics for discussion at the Council was – “Outlawing the keeping of the sabbath (Saturday) and encouraging rest on the Sunday” - (canon 29). http://bit.ly/2pLDNeo
We shall continue this discussion next time; until then…
