16 And he requires everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, 17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark: the beast’s name or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom: The one who has understanding must calculate the number of the beast, because it is the number of a man. His number is 666. -Revelation 13:16-18
The mark of the beast is connected to a currency that will be new for the world. For that to happen, there must be a worldwide economic collapse. Satan always used money to get people to worship him. He tried that with Jesus in the Book of Matthew 4:8-9 where he offered Jesus riches for worship. Jesus replied “Then Jesus told him, “Go away, Satan! For it is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve only Him.” -Matthew 4:10
Undoubtedly, he will do it again, but this time it will be for the whole world and it will come with a clause. The clause will be that if you do not worship the Antichrist through his system that he will set in place, like worshiping his image and receiving his mark on your body, you will be put to death. Read Revelation 13:7-10.
If you don’t get the mark of the beast, you won’t eat. Are you willing to starve than to take it? Is food much more important than going to heaven. In Revelation 14:9-12, it states that if you do receive his mark, you will forfeit your chance to go to heaven permanently.
A worldwide reset is coming. Are you ready?
27 And he will confirm a covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come the one who makes desolate, until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, gushes forth on the one who makes desolate.
The word “he” in the passage refers to The Antichrist. The “confirm a covenant” means to strengthen a treaty that already exists. The “one week” refers to seven years. “The wing of abominations” was prophesied in Daniel 9:27 & Matthew 24:15, which is still to be fulfilled in the future as seen in Revelation 13:14-15 which will be the image of the Antichrist standing on the corner of the Third Temple.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-4
1 Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, regarding the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, 2 that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit, or a message, or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 3 No one is to deceive you in any way! For it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.
The phrase “brothers and sisters” refers to the Christians residing in Thessalonica. “The coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” is in reference to the rapture of the believers. When it says, “gathering together to Him” it refers to meeting Jesus in the clouds. The phrase “disturbed either by a spirit” is talking about a demonic spirit.
The word “deceive” means to be tricked. The word “apostasy” means when a professing Christian abandons his faith in Jesus Christ, revealing he wasn’t saved in the first place. The title “man of lawlessness” refers to the Antichrist. The Antichrist will be “revealed” when he presents himself on the world stage. The phrase “the temple” is alluding to a future and functioning Third Temple. The phrase “displaying himself as being God” shows the true intent of the false Messiah. The Antichrist will claim to be God in the flesh.
