Today, as I was leaving the bank, I was stopped by a man that asked me some questions about the rapture (I had never met the man before so he did not know I was a pastor). He told me that after the rapture, he doesn’t want to have to stop “buying and selling”, thus, he would take the “mark of the beast”.
Revelation 13:17 states, “17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” He told me he was so concerned about not being able to buy and sell that he would be willing to take the mark of the beast to be able to do so. This man told me he was a Christian, but he had doubts. Maybe some of us find ourselves in the same situation — we want to believe, but we have doubts.
I told the man that I do not worry about not being able to buy and sell because I don’t plan on being here to deal with it. I think that we all need to live our lives in such a way that we won’t be here to endure what will follow the rapture. We need to focus on how we are living today so that we won’t have to worry about how we would live in the end.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
