The Mark - Summary

The Mark

Tom Wise


10. Summary.

Who are you? Are you devoted to God, or to your desires? Do you accept the Torah, or do you ignore, even disparage, it? Your Mark is your choice.

There should be no ideology taught that the Torah, the Law of God, has been altered, defused, or destroyed in any way. To do so would be against God and against Christ. Such teachings are antichrist and cause the Mark of the Beast to be applied, even if unknowingly. Whoever teaches against any commandment of God is antichrist and of the Beast. Christ never taught against Torah, or else He would be antichrist! If you accept Jesus, then you accept this.

Who would do such a thing? Who would teach lawlessness? Who would promise and promote Heaven without personal responsibility? Who would sing of the glorification of the spirit without earthly adherence to commandments? Is it Jesus? No!

Who is Jesus? He was the Son of God, that which proceeded from the mouth of God, which is His Word. He is Torah. No one can accept Jesus and also reject Torah. It is an empty acceptance. Recognize the true Christ.

Jesus said (Matthew 7:22-23):

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Recognizing Christ is not the same as acknowledging that He lived in any specific manner, or even that He died for some particular purpose. Instead, accepting Christ is to do as He did: (a) promote God’s Law and His righteousness, (b) give up traditions which obstruct us from living according to God’s commandments, (c) refrain from evil, (d) fight against the wickedness of the Beast, (e) live with joy and hope rather than in anxiety and fear. These things can be achieved now for our recognition later.

It is not up to Christ to keep you free from the Mark of the Beast. You must focus upon God and do it for yourself, exactly as Jesus did, and just as He described Himself (John 3:14). If you rely on false security, at the time of upheaval the Beast will easily claim victory over your soul.

For now, the Mark of the Beast is symbolic. Those who have taken the symbolic mark can be identified by the fruit of their diseased tree. They are savage in the name of God, killing for glory or praise. They are those who seek to destroy the name of God, or the freedom of religion. Their wicked state of mind may even be expressed openly, if they fear no spiritual reprisal. They are already loyal to the Beast. As the final time draws near, more and more souls will take the Mark of the Beast and behave in this way. As we tumble into the future, the Torah will become more despised, Christ will be called irrelevant, and the Mark of God will become a death sentence for all who take it.
