So it gets so bad either you take the mark, get signed by the Beast as under his ownership, or you die. Life and death are in his hands. Fear will be so great most of the world will bow, let him sign them as belonging to him. Souls signed by the devil are irrecoverable as it says in Rev 13. So what is the use, he is so bad, so powerful, so unstoppable. What can stand against him?
Just one thing, and it is just as powerful today as it will be then: the signature of God.
The ONLY Protection from Satan is The Signature of God
When you call upon Christ in repentant faith, God saves you. Salvation is the greatest work of God in the universe. I like to call the work of salvation the signature of God. When God writes Himself–across our lives.
Listen to this summary of what happens to each of us who come by faith to God through Christ.
1. REGENERATION: When God Changes my Heart. Ezekiel 36:26-27 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. Only God can do this!
2. CONVERSION: When God Changes my Life. Matthew 18:3 and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Only God can do this!
3. REPENTANCE: When God Changes my Mind. Matthew 3:8 Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, Only God can do this!
4. ADOPTION: When God Changes my Family. Romans 8:14-17 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. Only God can do this!
5. SANCTIFICATION: When God Changes my Behavior. Hebrews 10:14-16 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified. But the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before, “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,” Only God can do this!
6. JUSTIFICATION: When God Changes my State. Romans 5:1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, Only God can do this!
7. GLORIFICATION: When God Changes my Place. John 17:24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. Only God can do this!
Note these truths in your Bible, believe them in your heart, live them out each day, then share them as you act on the reality of God’s Signature across your life!
Are you an autographed copy of Christ?
Has the Spirit of God signed, sealed, and delivered you from sin, and death and hell?
If not you can be today, cry out to God and say: God be merciful to me the sinner.
That is why we study the antichrist, to see that greater is He that is with us: than the Evil One who is coming to deceive the whole world.
