I realized this past week that there are Christians who are convinced that the mark of the beast is here right now.
I am writing this article to assure you that although the technology for microchipping is here – that dreaded mark of the beast is certainly not!
I received an email from a reader of my articles. This sister was almost frantic; thinking that she could somehow receive a microchip and this would put her at risk to be programmed to follow the Beast!
Let’s look at some Scripture regarding this:
“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand” (John 10:27-29). (Emphasis added).
The Lord wants His people to know how secure they are in Him. “NO ONE is able to snatch them out of my Father’s hand”
“So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:4).
The child of God must see that taking the mark of the beast is an act of “worship.” They will worship not just the beast, but the dragon who gives the beast his power (Satan).
“And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Revelation 13:5-8). (Emphasis added).
Now first we see that it was granted the beast to make war with the saints and to “overcome” them. The beast will surely hunt down Tribulation saints and will kill them. But remember this Scripture:
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).
Notice in Revelation 13 that “All” who dwell on the earth will worship the beast whose names have “NOT” been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
The sister who wrote to me was absolutely certain that getting a microchip implanted; even unknowingly, would put that Christian at risk of worshiping Antichrist.
I gave her a scenario to help her to see that she was being tormented by the evil one in her fears:
I said to her:
“Let’s say that I had to go into the hospital for more surgery on my spine. And let’s say that while under anesthesia, a microchip was implanted inside of me. Would that put me at risk of losing eternal life and no longer belonging to Jesus?”
The woman answered quickly and said “Absolutely!”
The more I tried to comfort this woman that the mark of the beast (first of all) is NOT here yet; and secondly that I am a child of God – blood bought and born again and I belong to the Lord – the more she would say that a microchip secretly placed inside of me would put me at risk of being programmed to follow Antichrist!
Brethren, I finally had to stop writing to her. Each time she responded, her emails became more and more vitriolic. She would type in all caps: “YOU ARE WRONG!” There was no convincing her. I turned to the Lord in prayer that He would help this woman to see the truth.
From thebereancall.org (an excerpt)
“Well, I don’t think you need to be concerned about taking the mark of the beast right now, because the beast isn’t here. And when that mark is taken, it will signify a submission to him, worship of him, and it will be in conjunction with an image of the beast (that is the Antichrist) that he will put in the temple that he will allow to be rebuilt. In fact, he will cause it to be rebuilt, and the Jews will think he’s on their side. But in fact, he’s rebuilding it—having it rebuilt for his own promotion as “God.” – source (emphasis added)
Now I am not sure how many brothers and sisters in Christ believe as does this woman. The more I thought about that, the more I realized that I should write an article on this to help others if they have the same fears.
Remember this: Those who take the mark of the beast, take it willingly and worshipfully. Will the Tribulation saints not be able to buy or sell? Yes – that is true. Will the Tribulation saints be slaughtered by Antichrist? Sadly, yes they will.
They will be beheaded.
But after their deaths, they will see the King of Kings and Lord of Lords in heaven!
They will belong to Him for eternity.

Thank you of the reassurance.:)
I pray your words of comfort will take root and give the sister peace! We have been chosen for such a time as this! That means we are going to witness the set up in every area of life which will allow the AC to take over when we disappear! In the meantime we hide His word on our hearts. How special is 11 Tim…Our Father has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind! Yes we groan, we sigh in disbelief at technology, rage, unbelief, evil all around, but instead of fearing, we should be rejoicing and looking up, because they are all pointing to the soon return of our Jesus!! Every day we need to put on our armour, and sometimes, when I hear things, I say to myself, and Holy Spirit, ” OK, today, I am covering my helmet with tinfoil!!! 🙂 He knows what I mean!!! I pray sister can shake off that spirit of fear, and rejoice in HIs Shalom!!! Hallelujah, we put on the garment of praise!!! Everything in His word is coming to pass, and the word is becoming more alive!!! God Bless you in your ministry!!
so clear by the violence of abortions by the millions being murdered from conception start of life till birth done by satan. proving how violate and evil our world has become so many have silently sat by accepting these murders of babies making them as quitly as the hands and mothers that killed these babies. i can see God’s very angry and tears. STAND UP FIGHT FOR OUR BABIES DO NOT ACCEPT WHAT IS MURDER AS A RIGHT THING TO DO
Geri i so agree with your wonderful comment, fear is the lack of faith in jesus christ., i fear this woman had a lack of faith in jesus and his words. when we see we can not help someone we have to walk away from it all, for it can affect our own faith. satan is real, but i have to believe God will take his loved ones out of this horrible tribulation, those left some will become believers. and face their heads cut off for believing WE MUST ALL HOLD ON TO OUR FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST WHO SHED HIS BLOOD FOR OUR SINS. GOD BLESS ALL
Hey Geri … Interesting article.
But, what I wanted to comment on is this. You state that “Christians” during the tribulation will be “beheaded”. And I believe this. I spent 2 years in Saudi Arabia, from 1986-88, in which we would travel into town (Taif) on Friday’s to see if there were to be any punishment’s. We would hear from our Saudi’s of upcoming “beheadings”… and also lost of “hands and feet”. If one was a “foreigner” they would always move you to the front of the gathering, so you would get the whole event, “up close and personal”. Never witnessed a “beheading” but did see a “hand leave the arm tho.
I started driving trucks over-the-road in Jan 1989; I’d say maybe a decade or a little then that, I was driving down the road, and a bunch of us drivers were chatting on the CB (citizens Band Radio) … of which we were Not on channel 19, but a different one. After awhile a driver pulling a “flat-bed” trailer, made the statement, “you guys aren’t going to believe what I am hauling”. After a few minutes of some guesses, he told us he was hauling “guillotines”, and was heading to North Dakota, to drop them off at “military bases”. Before I started writing this reply to your articles, I did a search on the web, and I found an article on “Snopes” … and to NO real surprise, they “deny” that the military has bought any guillotines, and the article mentions year 2018; but Geri this is around the year 2000. and the load was “tarped”. NOT by the driver, but at the shipper. Not sure where he picked up his load, but all he said for destination was North Dakota.
Not really sure why the big cover-up, as back then, a lot of driver’s heard of guillotines crossing this country, and ALL going to military bases.
