    Image of the beast question?

    Remember how in the days of Moses, how Moses put his rod down and it became a snake? Then the Egyptians did the same thing: the devil has the power to alter matter, to make something appear as alive or living. Whatever the image will be made of, Satan can changed it - make it appear as if it is alive, and Satan can speak and make it seem as if the image is speaking. I promise you, when the devil is thrown into the lake of fire, images will not speak or move, nor will they shed tears or oil. All that demonic stuff will cease.

    Mark of the beast

    Notice what is written of the first angel: 6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, He is to preach to every nation, every kindred every tongue and people....What good would it do to preach to every people in a language they would not understand? I think when John wrote "tongue" it is to be understood that each would hear in their OWN tongue. Am I reading into that what is not intended? Perhaps so - perhaps not. God is a God of great mercy: it would be silly to think He would send an angel to give a message in a language not understood. I will not believe that. If the first angel preaches to every nation and every tongue - or every language: it would seem that the two angels following him would follow him to all the nations and tongues. Again, am I reading into this passage something not indicated? I don't think so. Again, I hope you are right. I just don't think you are.

    Do you equate Angels with demons? I don't.

    There is ONE SIN that Jesus blood did not cover: that is the sin of rejecting Jesus Christ and His blood that takes away our sins. I agree in part: the more one rejects, the harder it is to change. Ultimately many who die as sinners was always planning SOME DAY to come to Christ. For them that "some day" never came. Others are so hardened they have no desire or intent to ever turn to God. However, we are talking about a different season: the end of days of the Jewish age. Remember, that age was "an eye for an eye." Forgiveness was by faith in the animal sacrifices - as Paul stated, keeping their conscience clean. Many people like to quite church age verses to cover this time. I think this is error. For example, the one good verse saints who are living through the days of GT have to put their faith in is that they will be overcome. That is God's word to them for that season. The thing is, God looks at the heart. We cannot. If someone takes the mark believing in their heart that the Beast is really the God of creation - it boggles the mind that anyone could believe that. God will send angels warning people before the mark is enforced.

    I understand that the false miracles will cause people to think he really is God. But the verse you quoted seems to say they are deceived into making an image. It does not say they are deceived into taking the mark, or deceived about the message from the angel. So you are saying that they HEAR an Angel, in their own language, make this announcement - but they don't understand it? 9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: Anyway, I HOPE you are right here.

    Duh! "Our" is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

    Will they be deceived before or after God warns them not to take the mark?

    Some people think this is a sin like most other sin that can be repented of. Others think not. Is this a line that is crossed that cannot be retreated from? God sends angels to warn people - in their own language - every single person on the planet will get this warning: "take the mark and you will be doomed to the lake of fire." It seems to be this is the final line no one can cross. Everyone will know they they are choosing against the God of creation to take the mark. In other words, everyone will KNOW what they are doing and will do it deliberately. CAll it choosing sides: they are willfully and knowingly choosing the devil's side. Young's literal: And a third messenger did follow them, saying in a great voice, 'If any one the beast doth bow before, and his image, and doth receive a mark upon his forehead, or upon his hand, he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, that hath been mingled unmixed in the cup of His anger, and he shall be tormented in fire and brimstone before the holy messengers, and before the Lamb, This simply does not mention repentance. It says if one received the mark he also shall drink and be tormented in fire and brimstone. I have to disagree with you here. This is like God telling all the fence setters: "CHOOSE right now which side of this fence you want to be on: you cannot sit on the fence any longer - you must choose. If you choose ME, you may lose your head, but if you choose against me, you will be sent to the lake of fire."

    You were doing OK until you wrote this: This is the time of the sounding of the fifth trumpet, You are rearranging Revelation and your theory will be proven wrong. Period. Don't even think otherwise. You are ignoring John's timing and chronology. The 5th trumpet will come somewhere past the middle of the first 1260 days of the 70th week of Daniel - perhaps around the 30th month. The battle where Satan is cast down is at the midpoint of the week. Your timing then is off. You imagine you can rewrite Revelation to fit your theory. I have a novel idea: throw your theory into the trash and start over, forming your theory from Revelation AS WRITTEN. Satan and his fallen angels are released upon the earth for the final five months period WRONG again. Seals come first. After the 7th seal is opened the BOOK can be opened, which will reveal the 70th week of Daniel - starting with the 7 trumpets in the first half of the week. Then the second half will be days of great tribulation until those days are shortened by God pouring out the vials of His wrath. The week ends with the 7th vial. Then comes the destruction of "Mystery Babylon" and then Jesus will return. Of course the Millennial reign will not begin until after Jesus returns. Again you are trying to rewrite Revelation. Your theory will be proven wrong. Wrong again: the "Dragon" was and still is Satan. He was the dragon when Jesus was born. It is just another title for the dragon - in any time. I don't believe that theory about Satan coming to earth in Genesis 6. You are mistaken in your thinking. Yes, he will be cast down, and so to speak, lose his wings. But he will then possess the Beast and will be seen ONLY in what the Beast does.

    We were made in GOD's image.

    This verse does not seem to leave any room for repentance.

    You have asked a very interesting question: it seems it was God's plan from the beginning that man would rule the world for the first 6000 years and God would rule for the 7th thousand years. A few ancient Jewish sages - perhaps as far back as Moses' time, wrote about this. Another purpose will be to repopulate the earth. I suspect, from the 7 billion now on earth, the population may be down to a few million or even less after the 70th week has finished. God will use those that survive the week to repopulate. There is a very somewhere that says 7 women will cling to one man - for men will be very scarce. I believe most of the young men in the world's military forces will descend on Israel for the Battle of Armageddon - and be killed there.

    Rev. 14 9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

    Didn't Paul write that we could be entertaining angels without knowing they were angels? It is scripture that angels (at least some) can appear as humans. I cannot think of one scripture and anything in history to suggest that a demonic spirit can appear as a human.

    What difference does any of this make?
