The Mark, Do Not Accept It! (Part 2)
No, Not Our Youth Too!!
I was watching the news the other morning when I heard that there was a nightclub who was talking about inserting a chip under the skin of the regular attendees so that they would not have to endure identity theft.
I thought, “Oh my God, now Satan is targeting our youth”. Fear will be the root of the antichrist’s tactics. He is going to start off subtle, as he is doing now with this “identity theft” thing. Everyone, including us Christians, wants to protect our identity and it is rightfully so. But, we must be careful and not fall tempted to the adversary. He is cunning and deceptive and he will use any tactic that he can on the most intelligent person.
For example, a couple of years ago, there was a couple who moved into our area. They appeared to have it all together, fancy cars and a lot of money. People in the church was curious about how this couple was so blessed and there came the opening for the enemy. This couple claimed that they were in some type of investment club and that they could invest so much money and have it turn over into more money. They would go from church to church, swindling all that they could woo in. Now you have to understand, the area where I live has been desolate for many years and it is just now beginning to grow rapidly in population, mainly because the homes are cheaper than in the inner city. Therefore, when someone (A wolf) comes in appearing to be of God and for helping the Body invest and prosper, some who were probably praying for a breakthrough for years, fell for it. But I praise God that I have a pastor who is not gullible at all and he warned the congregation, but unfortunately not all listened, including some ministers.
I said all of this to say, we must beware of deceptions, because they are out there and the bible says that in these days there will be deception in the church. We cannot be tricked by everything that looks good for fear that it will protect us. Sure we want our identity kept secure, but there are other ways of doing that rather than having a chip which is the mark of the beast placed under our skin.
Wake up and beware, watch and pray!

We need more care and we need to beware. Devils decetion is common as the air in the gathering of the saints, Beware!
