    Default Surviving the End Time without the Mark of the Beast

    Watching this video suggest ways believers can survive the end time persecution, listing ways to overcome the requirement of the the Mark of the Beast to buy and sell:



    Struck me as odd. Why try to survive? What not joyfully be beheaded refusing the mark?

    As a Walking Dead episode said it, to paraphrase:

    "If you must eat a crap sandwich, its best not to nibble."


    Who thinks we must do all we can to survive the Great Tribulation, and who agrees with me, why not accept our lot in faith. Fighting it with the wrong methods will not produce the desired result:

    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.
    (Rev. 13:10 KJV)

    I would just broadly say that we should strive to spread the gospel as much as possible. I don't think we'll be here for the tribulation, but hypothetically I think trying to survive is low on the list of priorities.

    I hope and pray you are right about us not being here, and I'm wrong. But can't see how that is possible. The Thessalonians were terrified they were left behind, that the rapture/resurrection had already passed. Paul cites the appearance of the Antichrist, the fact he hasn't appeared as proof the rapture/resurrection wasn't past already:

    Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some. (2 Tim. 2:18 KJV)


    1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
    2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
    3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (2 Thess. 2:1-3 KJV)
    Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools (Rom. 1:22 KJV)

    There won't be a rapture. Y'all are stuck here with the rest of us.
