And the power to deny it. Along with the abilities to survive without it! But God is greater then anything that would try to deceive or hurt us!
His says, His children will not beg for bread. I believe He will provide for whatever the need that will befall us in the future. And fear needs not to overcome or enter our hearts!

God is and will keep us! I know with all my heart He is with us (me) and will never forsake His children, even with all this! I so trust Him and have a peace about the whole thing that is coming!

Rest in Him!!!

They live for it, they work for it, and unless you have it, you will not eat, period. I am sure you know what it is....
So are you saying that you wouldn't have a problem with having an implant inbedded in you?...

I would bet that 99.9% of the Christians today would take if it meant they were going to starve. Or watch their children starve. There is more important work to be done than worrying about tomorrow.

Would I take it? Who knows. I use money but don't idolize it. God's will is my command.

I just watched one of the seven deadliest sins on History Channel. The one on greed was quite interesting. Seems not everyone always succumbed to capitalism and it's greed, as this is a relatively new concept. But they have us now, don't they. Where can you go, that doesn't have the stench of greed and capitalism attached to it. The "almighty" dollar will fall, as do ALL of them. Then we shall see who is faithful to endure to the end, and who isn't.

I am reminded of the movie,,the kingdom of heaven. The Priest at the end of the movie said,,,"let's convert to Islam, and then repent later."

How many will say this same thing in the later times,,,but maybe not Islam,,maybe something else that goes with the flow.

...Sitting here......thinking about this...I guess the real test of faith would be in a form such as this...huh? What you say is profound, to me anyway...A government ordering you to take an implant...hesitantly you do it, because you want to eat...so then you trust that the Lord will understand what you have done and why...OR...A government ordering you to take an implant...you refuse it, because you trust that the Lord will provide all that you need, and you are not afraid to die of starvation, because you know the worst that could happen is that you will die and go to be with the Lord anyway......hummmmmmm....? I wonder.........?

It's what I believe from reading the bible. The mark of the beast will be an end times "mark" required by the antichrist to buy or sell and will be given only to those who worship the antichrist.
This is a mark that identifies someone as being faithful to the antichrist's kingdom.

This mark will be more than buying and selling, it will be a mark of solidarity-an ideology behind this mark-an ideology in which religion has no place. People will know full well what it means to accept the mark.
