There is no greater modern gateway to the apocalyptic “Beast,” or antichrist, than the entirety of the worldwide COVID 19 response. Nations were locked down. Food supplies were disrupted. Businesses, schools, and churches were forced to close. Healthy people were quarantined. Travel was confined. These restrictions came within months of the spread of the virus. And they were just the beginning. With reopening there remains a certain amount of freedoms being curtailed, suppressed. Today, the world is being asked to bow to a god called a vaccine, even though you have less than a percent chance of dying if you are infected with the virus. See how quick it can happen?
Speaking of the end time beast, Revelation 13:16-17 prophesies: “And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in the right hand or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” COVID 19 is not the end time beast. Nor is the vaccine. Notwithstanding, it is an example of how a worldwide event, such as an end time plague, can cause such fear that people will do most anything to buy, sell, or live. In essence, this COVID vaccine has taken over the world. If you don’t have it, your family, friends, and neighbors shame you; your governments limit you; your merchants restrict you.
In America, New York s the first state to implement a vaccine passport. The Biden Administration is working on “guidelines” for the nation, but White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki says, “A determination or development of vaccine passport or whatever you want to call it will be driven by the private sector.” In other words, Biden is going to give big corporations and media the authority to shut you down, just like they have green-lighted censoring your freedom of thought and speech. Europe is developing its COVID passport. And Israel, where the end time beast will set up shop, was among the first to require a “Green Pass.” Israel’s Ministry of Health will issue the passport to the vaccinated, giving them exclusive access to hotels, gyms, theaters, music venues and other places like restaurants and bars.
I repeat: The COVID vaccine is not the end time beast. But every person who loves the Lord should at least be aware of how quickly an antichrist figure, the beast, could deceive and control the world. COVID, if not a blueprint, is an example. People were in a panic about food, finances, and services. IF we are privileged to be the generation of Christ’s return, take care that you are not so fearful, deceived or shamed into taking the mark of the beast. As Revelation 20:4 discloses, “And I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, reigned with Christ a thousand years.” It is better to lose your life for Christ and gain eternity than to preserve your life but lose your salvation.
