Are You Being Marked by the Beast?

By John Thiel, mp3

Scripture reading: 1 John 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. 4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, [even] our faith. 5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

Many people believe that when the mark of the beast of Revelation 13 is applied, that is when we are going to be tested by the mark of the beast. But are you being marked by the beast now?

All of us who have been living ever since 1844 have been tested, and are being tested, by the mark of the beast, whether that mark has been enforced or not. We want to examine closely whether we are being marked by the beast or not. Read the rest of this entry

Our Commitment to the Three Angels’ Messages

By John Thiel, mp3

How close is it to the coming of Jesus? We have become vividly aware that we are indeed at the very last of the generation that is to see Jesus coming. All that Jesus foretold is culminating and I have a deep sense that during this year and the next, we will be meeting some very serious circumstances. We have been given the assistance of the angels but it is up to us whether we will actually be in tune with them. I would like to spend time with you this hour in considering our commitment to the three angels and their messages and that other angel of Revelation 18.

We are often fascinated in reference to angels, as our Scripture reading expressed – “Are they not ministering spirits?” Angels are actually ministering for us, especially those who are the heirs of salvation. They are “ministering spirits, sent forth to minister” to us. One aspect of their ministry is to communicate light from heaven to us. We see this in the words of the angel of Revelation 1:1 where the message was conveyed from Jesus via the angel to John the revelator and in Daniel 9:20-23 you have Gabriel speaking being sent from heaven to administer light to Daniel.

And He Spake As A Dragon

2 Peter 1:19 We have a more sure word of prophesy

When we study prophecies that apply to the future and that have a direct bearing on us, it says we do well to take heed and listen to it. There is a great deal of warning and instruction in Revelation and we would do well to take heed of it.

The Mongrel Beast of Revelation 13

Revelation 13:10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. Read the rest of this entry

The Mark of the Beast

By John Thiel

The sealing work differentiates contrasting marks.  There will two types of marks received in the last days.  One given by the beast and one given by God.

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. Revelation 13:1

This speaks of empires after the Roman empire.  These empires now have horns which means they are governing powers.  Not just conquering.  The fall of the Pagan Roman empire was in 538 AD.  The first pope had power.  The beast means the papacy.  But what happened in 1798?

3. The Mark of the Beast

By John Thiel, Third Angel’s Message, study 3, mp3

The third angel is identified for us in the statement of Early Writings:

I then saw the third angel. Said my accompanying angel, “Fearful is his work. Awful is his mission. He is the angel that is to select the wheat from the tares, and seal, or bind, the wheat for the heavenly garner. These things should engross the whole mind, the whole attention.” {EW 118.1} Read the rest of this entry
