Recently in the UK lawmakers are moving towards delisting companies that fail to take action on the climate crisis from being able to trade stocks. In other words if you refuse to go along with the policies you will not be able to buy or sell. Similarly we are told in the Bible “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.” (Revelation 13:17)
The current climate crisis itself is not the mark of the beast, however, it does relate to the mark of the Beast as we will unfold in this article. With “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth:” (Luke 21:27), in other words as they look to the signs around them, they see that action must be taken. And they cry to their leaders to stand up and do something.
Contrary to published opinions of men, the mark of the beast is not a microchip, nor homosexuality. A careful study of the Bible allowing the Bible to interpret itself will reveal who the Beast is and what the mark is. In fact we can expound who the Beast is and what its mark is in only a few short paragraphs. The Bible tells us that a Beast is a Kingdom. Notice:
”The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth.” (Daniel 7:23)
So, this tells us that the Beast is not a mega computer in Europe, nor is it the TV, nor is it one man styling himself “the Beast” such Aleister Crowley, or Nero. But it is a Kingdom. And we are told further in Revelation 13 that “the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” (Revelation 13:2)
This amalgamated Beast of Revelation 13 with the dreaded MARK is given power from another Beast or Kingdom represented by the dragon. In Revelation 12 we read the following:
Revelation 12:1-4 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
More symbols which the Bible can interpret. The child obviously symbolizes Jesus Christ. He is was the promised seed of the woman. (Gen 3:15, Gal 3:16) And the dragon is a symbol of Satan. (Rev 12:9). “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed.” (Rev 12:17)
The Dragon was WROTH. And went to make war with the Seed. We are told that “ thy seed, which is Christ. ” (Gal 3:16) And he tried to destroy the seed “as soon as it was born.” (Rev 12:4)
Matthew 2:16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding WROTH, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem.
The dragon was WROTH, and tried to destroy the seed(Christ/Messiah) through Herod, who was working on behalf of The Pagan Empire of Rome. Rome is symbolized as having 10 horns in Bible Prophecy, a symbol of the divided empire. The 7 crowns symbolize the fall of the republic. 10 horns and 10 crowns are listed on the beast in Revelation 13 that receives its power from the dragon.
And just who is the beast in Revelation 13 that received its power seat and authority from the Pagan Roman Empire. It was the Papacy. They tell us themselves.
“It is, therefore, by a particular decree of Divine Providence that, at the fall of the Roman Empire and its partition into separate kingdoms, the Roman Pontiff, whom Christ made the head and center of his entire Church, acquired civil power.” − Pius IX, Apostolic Letter Cum Catholica Ecclesia, March 26, 1860.
In 533 A.D. Roman Emperor Justinian declared in a letter to the Archbishop of Rome “We have exerted Ourselves to unite all the priests of the East and subject them to the See of Your Holiness”, and that “because you are the head of all the Holy Churches, for We shall exert Ourselves in every way (as has already been stated), to increase the honor and authority of your See.” (Justinian Code 533 AD)
This document of the Justinian Code dealing mainly with the doctrine of the Trinity branded anyone who did not submit to the official beliefs of the Church heretics and outlaws and by the year 538 AD, the Arian Ostrogoths, the third of three tribes that were uprooted by the Catholic Church were hunted and destroyed, and the Church became the ruling power over the entire world ruling until 1798, 1260 years until the Napoleon of France removed the Papacy from its position of power over the States.
And so after eliminating 3 nations, they had crowned themselves King over the entire Roman Empire. Thus the 10 crowns.
This is the Beast that is said to have “power to continue forty and two months.” (Revelation 13:5) Months used to be 30 days. (See Gen 7:11, 24, 8:4) And in prophecy they still are. So 42 months times 30 equals 1260 days. And when looking at prophetic time, or time prophecies we are told in Ezekiel and Numbers that we are “given a day for a year.” (Num 14:34, Eze 4:6) So therefore the prophecy in Revelation 13 of the Beast is a prophecy concerning the Papacy ruling for 1260 years from 538 at the uprooting of the Ostrogoths, to 1798 when its power was taken by France.
There is one Kingdom that can fit all the characteristics of this beast in Revelation 13. And we are told that the world would again worship and adore the Papacy. But not only that, we are told that the world would also accept the mark of this beast.
“Distinctive of the Roman Catholic Church, Sunday Mass observance became A MARK of a practicing Catholic.” (Dictionary of the Liturgy, Rev. Jovian P. Lang, OFM., Catholic Book Publishing Co., 1989)
“Sunday IS OUR MARK OF AUTHORITY…THE CHURCH IS ABOVE THE BIBLE, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact.” — Catholic Record of London, Ontario, September 1, 1923.
“Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change (Saturday Sabbath to Sunday) was HER ACT…And the ACT IS A MARK OF HER ecclesiastical authority in religious things.” — H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons.
“The attendance at [Sunday] Mass is THE MARK of a practical Catholic. … the worship of God and demands the attendance at Sunday Mass of every Catholic worthy of the name.”(The Faith of Millions, by the Reverend John A. O’Brien, PH.D., Copyright 1938, published by Our Sunday Visitor, Huntington Indiana, pages 397-398, 401, 403.)
“The Pope recalls that “the theme (of the congress), ‘We cannot live without the Lord’s day’,… “It is my heartfelt wish that this Eucharistic Congress may cause the desire for sanctity to grow within the faithful of the entire diocese, an indispensable condition for an apostolic commitment capable of making A MARK upon SOCIETY.” (Vatican Information Service (VIS) press release, Sept 2, 1999, quoting a letter by Pope John Paul II)
And there is no doubt they want society as a whole to take this MARK. And most of Christianity already has, but what is the next step? To force it by law upon the masses.
Rev 13:16-17 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their 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.
They certainly do want ALL of SOCIETY to accept their MARK, and for those who refuse to go along, they will be branded as heretics and outlaws. As climate disasters increase, the push for Sunday laws is increasing.
This is not something that is coming, this is something that is here now. Croation President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović said that she would be asking her counsel to adopt legislation forcing businesses to close on Sunday. This of course coming at the same time that there are many other countries making the same type of legislation such as Poland, Italy and France.
Sunday the Mark and the Climate Agenda
It is on its way in the United States as well, veiled under legislation such as the New Green Deal, which is also called the SUNRISE Movement. Sunday worship, sunrise worship. Its all connected under a veil. There is even a website called Greensabbath.org that talks about how Sunday Keeping will help meet the United Nation targets of cutting carbon emissions. They tell us:
“hitting the climate change targets agreed in Paris is estimated to cost $16.5trn. But, there’s hardly any costs to keeping Green Sabbath days to cut carbon emissions!!! It’s a solution that will have a profound impact on climate change for little to no capital investment! Once A Week can result in over 15% annual emission reduction per country. Participation by only top carbon dioxide emitting countries will have the largest impact in climate change!” (Greensabbath.org)
Of course the obvious countries being targetted would include the United States, and there is no doubt what is coming when Greta Thunberg recently came to America, millions watched. She has met with Pope Francis and also has supported Pope Francis’ document on Laudato Si, an environmental encyclical that promotes Sunday Rest.
But furthermore, of course they are striking on Fridays from school, and the movement has reached a level of over 4 million people for the worldwide climate strike earlier this year. But we read of how the unions are getting on board in this article from the guardian.
”Trade unions representing HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of people around the world have come out in support of what is expected to be the biggest climate mobilisation the world has ever seen.” https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/sep/19/trade-unions-around-the-world-support-global-climate-strike
So we are going from a movement of 4 million to HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS. And not only that but the movements being made are becoming extremely aggressive. Including now the prevention of businesses from being able to buy or sell on the stock market, it is a matter of time before God’s people are prevented from buying or selling because of their refusal to uphold their Green Sabbaths and join the climate movement.
