You may hear pastors teach about your identity in Christ…it’s a pretty common and important sermon topic. Understanding who you are, who God made you to be is quite critical to your walk with the Lord. But there’s one obvious angle that is usually glossed over if mentioned at all, but it is the one angle that if you miss it, your eternity may end up at risk.
We are the generation that has more than one “unpardonable sin.” Once the Mark of the Beast is fully rolled out, anyone who participates in that system will wind up in hell. Revelation 14:9-13 gives the details. But how does this relate to your identity in Christ?
You are unique in all of creation, even among all of humanity, in many ways. Your fingerprints are unique, your irises are unique, your facial structure is unique, the way you walk is unique, the very pathways your blood is routed through your body are unique. All of these are PART of your God created identity. Genesis 1:26-27 says you have been made in His image, and part of that is physical.
When you are born, your physical uniqueness is the only image of God you carry because of original sin. Once you receive Christ as your savior, your spirit is imprinted with God’s image first – Jesus’ blood making you identified to the Father as one of His own, and then the Holy Spirit partners with you to transform your mind so your thoughts will be in line with God’s as well. This is God’s plan to restore your full identity and help you to become all that you were created to be.
The enemy is still after you though, and more than ever in this generation, because he knows there is a new way to steal your identity and cause you to forfeit your salvation. His beast system has been carefully crafted, tested, piloted and is being rolled out one country at a time. It has been designed for people to give their physical uniqueness up to be used by governments to control and restrict their access to money, health care, food, and travel. Revelation 13:15-18
For those who don’t have the Holy Spirit, who don’t understand their identity in the Lord, giving up their physical uniqueness for the promise of convenience and security will be a no brainer. They’ll probably line up and be anxious to be first. But even many with the Holy Spirit will be tempted and fooled. Revelation 14:12, Matthew 24:24
As you learn about the work of the Holy Spirit, as you discipline your thoughts and partner with Him for the renewing and transforming of your mind, don’t forget to guard your first image – your physical image. There are some things you can’t control and can be “taken” from you without your consent, like your facial id points, your gait. But the day will come when you will be asked to give up your hand scan or iris scan. Many people are being asked for these things already.
It took many years for Christians to be aware of RFID technology, chips and the like. Even today, if believers are willing to even admit that we may be here when the Beast system is enforced, they think they will be faced with RFID chip injections. You’ve probably seen the various viral stories and videos about chips, but chips are a red herring. Merely a rung on the ladder that ends with biometrics.
The Beast system is not about an implant or a tattoo, nor is it about an armband or patch as some others are saying. It is about using your God given identity against you…both here, and in the hereafter. The enemy can’t separate you from the Holy Spirit, but he can undermine your trust in God, trick you with the age old lie that you won’t surely die so that you will hand over your biometrics willingly. And your children’s.
Think about it. It’s the same lie, with the same result. Adam and Eve in the garden already had the complete image of God, the physical AND the spiritual and mental. By conning them into sinning, the enemy stripped them of their connection to God, not knowing God’s thoughts, and their spiritual destinies were thrown into risk with the introduction of death. But they were left with their physical marks…all the physical ways that God wrote His name on them. None of those things were taken as a result of the Fall. Genesis 3:14-19
How ironic that although God provided Jesus to restore our spirits and the Holy Spirit to restore our minds…in the end, the enemy will use our physical image to rob us of our eternity anyway. BE AWARE OF HIS SCHEMES and DON’T FALL FOR THE DECEPTION even though it may very well mean that you don’t get access to health care, your paycheck, groceries, gas. Protect your identity – not only from cyber thieves but from the government. Trust God, that He will cut those days short so you CAN endure. Matthew 24:22
Also, get plugged in with a LOCAL body of believers for fellowship, encouragement and tangible support. You are going to need it. Hebrews 10:25
The Beast System will weave its way to our country…but it does not have to cost us our eternity.
