The definition for image is to have a replica, a copy or a seal. It is no different in this situation.
What three identifying marks does the Seal of the U.S. Government possess? A) Name - Donald Trump B) Title - President and C) Territory over which he resides – the United States of America.
This entity has sought to copy the image or sign of God; however, it has created a false image, for its followers.
What is God’s image? The answer is found in Exodus 20:8-11; God’s seal reads thus: A) Name – Lord God; B) Title – Creator and C) Territory over which He resides – Heaven and earth, the sea and all that dwells therein. God’s image is the 7th-day Sabbath.
It was predicted in Daniel 7:25 – “He shall speak pompous words against the Most High... And shall intend to change times and law.” The beast has intended to change the day of worship, from the 7th day, Saturday to Sunday, the first day of the week; also, instead of worshipping from sunset to sunset, which is how God reckoned time - to midnight to midnight. The beast’s image is Sunday worship.
Next week, we will look at its origin and elaborate this, a little bit more.
