Who do You Worship?

June 19th, 2017     

God uses some pretty strong language to describe the mark of the beast.

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 [thoughts], or in his hand [deeds], 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:
– Revelation 14:9-10

We can immediately see that the mark of the beast has to do with worshiping. Christian or not, if you worship the beast, God’s wrath is on you.

A mark is also known as a sign, and interestingly enough, so are God’s Ten Commandments.

And thou shalt bind them [Ten Commandments] for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
– Deuteronomy 6:8

Note here that God’s Ten Commandments are also kept in the forehead (thoughts), and in the hand (deeds). The space between your eyes is where the frontal lobe is. All decisions are made there.

So already we can see that the mark is about who you worship, and has something to do with the Ten Commandments.

Let’s have a closer look at what it means to worship.

Worship: the feeling or expression of reverence and adoration for a deity.
Reverence: deep respect for someone or something.
Adoration: deep love and respect.

So in short it means “deep love and respect”.

But how do we love God?

If you love Me, keep My commandments.
– John 14:15 (NKJV)

Jesus said this, so obviously it’s important.

Note that this verse about worshiping points back to the Ten Commandments.

The book of Revelation also points to the Ten Commandments.

And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
– Revelation 12:17

And

Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
– Revelation 14:12

And

Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
– Revelation 22:14

Three times (!!) it mentions the Ten Commandments.

The book of Revelation was specifically written for the last days, so this is clearly very important.

God wants us to keep the Ten Commandments no matter what.

It’s a test.

Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.
– Revelation 3:10 (NKJV)

When it comes down to “Who do you worship?” there is of course only one other contender and that’s satan. He’s got his own counterfeit “commandments”, and he wants you to worship him.

When it comes to worshiping there is only one Commandment that comes to mind, and that’s the Sabbath Commandment.

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
– Exodus 20:8-11 (NKJV)

The Sabbath Day (blessed and hallowed) is a set day for worshiping and fellow shipping.

If satan wants people to worship him he would need to change the Sabbath Commandment, and replace it with something else. Satan’s day, his mark if you will, is better known as the ‘Holy’ Day (Sunday). This change was made in 321 AD.

Now you might say that it’s just a day!! Right?!?

But please understand that to God it’s not just a day. God is waiting for you on the Sabbath Day, and not on any other day. Remember that it was God’s own finger that wrote the Ten Commandments in stone. The Ark of the Covenant (in which the Ten Commandments were kept) is a central part of the earthly and heavenly tabernacle.

The earthly tabernacle is a shadow of the heavenly tabernacle.

Now this is the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a Minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the Lord erected, and not man.
– Hebrews 8:1-2 (NKJV)

But both have the Ten Commandments at the very heart of it.

Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.
– Revelation 11:19 (NKJV)

Breaking the Sabbath Commandment means you are guilty of breaking all of the Law.

For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.
– James 2:10 (NKJV)

The change from Sabbath to Sunday was prophesied.

And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
– Daniel 7:25

This also clearly points the finger at who the antichrist is.

Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change [from Sabbath to Sunday] was her act. And the act is the mark of her ecclesiastical power and authority in religious matters.
– Faith of Our Fathers, p. 14 C.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons

Shocked?!?

No need be. The Roman Catholic Church are the ones behind the Dark Ages (more than 50 million Christians killed), they worked together with Hitler during World War 2, and they’re behind the New World Order (which comes with its own Sunday law that will be enforced).

You can’t make this stuff up.

To sum it up:

The mark of the beast = knowingly keeping Sunday instead of Sabbath.

When I think about the test that God will put before us, I think of Daniel’s friends that chose the furnace over bowing down to false gods.

I pray that you choose the Sabbath over the Mark.
