Does taking the mark condemn one forever?

  • Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven.  Matthew 12:31

According to Jesus' own words, only blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.  So, the question becomes, "What exactly is the sin of taking the mark and worshiping the image?"  The answer to that question will answer your question.

Rev. 14

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:

Yes, those who receive the mark and worship the image are the objects of the plagues.

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.

And yes, this is the fate of those who refuse to repent of the the mark and the image.

So let me ask you a question,what is the purpose of the millennium?

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.

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

All it takes is a basic understanding of grammar and a little bit of word studying to realize that it is talking about those who refuse to repent.

Or.

You can hold on to the "sealed fate" notion that directly contradicts what Jesus plainly stated about forgiveness.

It's up to you.

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.

Absolutely not true.  They will be deceived.

  • And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life.  Revelation 13:14

People will be deceived into thinking that the man of sin is God because of the signs he performs.  Scripture teaches the exact opposite of what you claim.  The question is whether or not they will come to their senses and repent.  The plagues will convict them of their sin of idolatry.  How many choose to repent is yet to be seen.
