I've seen a ridiculous number of people posting lately about how the Mark of the Beast is supposedly a mark that applies to those who don't observe
Sabbath on the first day of the week, the 7th day of the week, or whatever else.
This is completely incorrect. I feel that the real conspiracy is the idea that such a thing is true - the root truth is that Satan is attempting to
change people's views on ATS, as he knows many of us are open to interesting and thought provoking conspiracies and the ideas associated with them.
These people are acting as false prophets to distort and mislead people who are either weak in their faith or unsaved. I feel these people have also
been mislead, and this thread is my attempt at helping everyone find the real truth.
I can't force what you believe and it's true you must come to your own conclusions, but the Bible is the final word until Jesus returns.
If you think that the Mark of the Beast is a Sunday or whatever other day Sabbath, you can't claim to be a Christian, as doing so contradicts the New
Testament. If you contradict the New Testament, you invalidate your own faith in Jesus and everything else within the New Testament, as it introduces
us to all we know about the Lord, and it also contains the following passages.
When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, HAVING
CANCELED THE WRITTEN CODE, WITH ITS REGULATIONS, THAT WAS AGAINST US AND THAT STOOD OPPOSED TO US; HE TOOK IT AWAY, NAILING IT TO THE CROSS. And
having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.THEREFORE DO NOT LET ANYONE
JUDGE YOU BY what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or A SABBATH DAY. THESE ARE A SHADOW OF THE
THINGS THAT WERE TO COME; THE REALITY, HOWEVER, IS FOUND IN CHRIST.
ACCEPT HIM WHOSE FAITH IS WEAK, WITHOUT PASSING JUDGMENT ON DISPUTABLE MATTERS. One man's faith allows him to eat everything, but another man,
WHOSE FAITH IS WEAK, EATS ONLY VEGETABLES. The man who eats everything must not look down on him who does not, and the man who does not eat
everything must not condemn the man who does, for God has accepted him. 4Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To his own master he stands or
falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.
One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind.
HE WHO REGARDS ONE DAY AS SPECIAL, DOES SO TO THE LORD. He who eats meat, eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he who abstains,
does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God. For none of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies to himself alone. If we live, we live to the
Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.
If you claim to be a Christian and really think the Mark of the Beast is a Sabbath on the "wrong" day, you should read your bible and find that the
day on which you actually observe the Sabbath, and the frequency at which you do so, DOES NOT MATTER so long as your faith in the Lord exists, and you
acknowledge the new covenant and law under Jesus and His sacrifice. If not, you're nothing but a Pharisee and tool of Satan, attempting to pervert the
view of the faith to those who are weak or devoid of it. HE BECAME THE LAW.
