How strong is your faith? Does it give up after days of praying with no answer or months? Or, is your prayer unwavering until it gets an answer?
16 And the second beast required all people small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark—the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 Here is a call for wisdom: Let the one who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and that number is 666. -Revelation 13:16-18 BSB
The number 666, or the Antichrist’s name that will constitute the Mark of the Beast, will be intertwined with a worldwide financial system. Without having that identification on the right hand or forehead, no one can establish any type of business or get a job to make money. That system will be connected to the devil, and one has to submit to that system and live a godless life or end up dying for Jesus, which is far better than to receive the 666, and after death, be cast into hell.
9 And a third angel followed them, calling out in a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and its image, and receives its mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he too will drink the wine of God’s anger, poured undiluted into the cup of His wrath. And he will be tormented in fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment rises forever and ever. Day and night there is no rest for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.” -Revelation 14:9-11 BSB
Australia, China, Sweden, and other countries alike are a picture of what’s coming to all nations when the Antichrist is revealed (2 Thessalonians 2:5-8). I believe the stage for the world to receive the Mark of the Beast is being set, and it will contain an electronic vaccine passport with the 666 embedded with it to put in the body since many nations are already mandating the shot for all their citizens.
How’s your faith? Are you feeding it through God’s Word, or are you too busy with the things of this world? My friend, you don’t have too much time left. Jesus is coming very soon, and if He asks you what you did for Him, what will you tell Him?

1 Now the angel of the LORD went up from Gilgal to Bochim and said, “I brought you up out of Egypt and led you into the land that I had promised to your fathers, and I said, ‘I will never break My covenant with you, 2 and you are not to make a covenant with the people of this land, but you shall tear down their altars.’ Yet you have not obeyed My voice. What is this you have done? -Judges 2:1-2 BSB
Why didn’t the LORD want His people to mix with the surrounding nations? Because they worshiped false gods and they will serve as a bad influence on them, which would make them fall into their trap and end up worshiping their gods, abandoning the LORD.
When you bind yourself with someone who does not have the Lord like in marriage, business, or friendship, you have put yourself in a dangerous situation. If you cannot influence them and bring them to Christ, the opposite will occur.
There are four types of landmines that the wrong person can introduce in the friendship and have the potential of causing your faith to get destroyed if you are not careful. See below.
- You can step on a landmine of misery (Numbers 33:55 “But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land before you, those you allow to remain will become barbs in your eyes and thorns in your sides; they will harass you in the land where you settle.”)
- You can step on a landmine of apostasy (1 Kings 11:2 “These women were from the nations about which the LORD had told the Israelites, “You must not intermarry with them, for surely they will turn your hearts after their gods.” Yet Solomon clung to these women in love.”)
- You can step on a landmine that will cause God’s wrath to fall upon you (2 Chronicles 19:2 “Jehu son of Hanani the seer went out to confront him and said to King Jehoshaphat, “Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD? Because of this, the wrath of the LORD is upon you.”)
- You can step on a landmine that will cause you to compromise your moral excellence (1 Corinthians 15:33 “Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good character.”)
Make sure that those you choose to connect emotionally on a deeper level belong to the Lord. And not that they only confess Jesus as Lord, but that they believe in sound doctrine and walk according to the truth of God’s Word.
