Please read the Bible more with your own eyes. And I hope that God gives you more wisdom because you are seeking it.
As well, if you think that you should be listening to mainstream pastors, you really forget the kind of world in which you live. Know you not that
the spiritual leaders of today are no better than the Pharisees and the Saduccees and the Essenes of that day - and yet they are even worse.
Here are verses (and you should read 1 Thessalonians again; it only takes 10 minutes, I just did it so that I could be more refreshed so that I could
explain more to you) that you are missing from your message:
5:1 But of the times and seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so
cometh as a thief in the night. 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with
child; and they shall not escape. 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-4
(transcribed from my KJV Bible on my phone)
Also remember how it is said that in the end, the world will be like in the days of Noah? People will be giving into marriage, partying, blaspheming
God, and doing whatever they please.
If 500 million people disappeared off of the planet, no one would get married the next day! No one would be partying (except for some incredibly
insane people). If 500 million people disappeared off of the planet, half of your science-minded atheists would have strokes and heart-attacks, like,
immediately - and so would everyone else. That kind of event is SO much more devastating that you are giving it credit for. You're claiming people
would just be showing up to work the next day. If 500 million people disappeared off of the face of the planet, people would be way too insecure to
go to work. People call in when a few snow flakes float down from the sky. You are not thinking clearly.
500 million people are not going to disappear off of the planet...at least, not per the scenario which you are presenting.
Everything that is happening now is the wars and the rumors of wars; the natural disasters (although not as harshly as they will happen yet) and all
the craziness is still yet to continue. But be warned - that man of lawlessness will not be revealed until there is already "world peace". 500
million people disappearing does not "world peace" make (all childish jokes aside).
So the EVENT that you seek is well before the unveiling of the man of lawlessness and well before the Final Trump.
Also, you completely misunderstand the mark. The mark is NOT the RFID chip - in fact, it is not a physical mark at all. Allow me to give you proof
from the Word of God.
13:16 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: 13:17 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. 13:18
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is
Six hundred threescore and six.
I added the emphases, with good reason.
The bonded (imprisoned, enslaved) would not have the power to fight off anyone who wished to insert an RFID chip into them... so you're basically
saying that God does not give the imprisoned or enslaved a chance to reject the mark because they would not be physically able to reject it. As well,
pay attention to the fact that the mark is taken in the right hand OR in their foreheads. Now tell me; other than the fact that some people may be
missing right hands, why wouldn't they just put it in their left hand then? Also, if someone has no hands, then do you think they would just go
after the forehead? That is ridiculous. There are plenty of areas on the body that are more logical for the placement of the RFID. Pay attention
carefully - RIGHT hand - or forehead. The right hand is a symbol of dexterity (which is from the latin "Dexter" meaning "right") or physical
labor. The forehead is the symbol of mindfulness - wherever the forehead is, there also are the eyes. The focus of someone's mindfulness, or
remembrance, is being described here. Now you know that man, though he has tried very hard, and though some tactics work to a certain extent, man can
never truly rule the mind of another man except that the man is willing.
Also recognize that the NAME OF THE BEAST is just as damning as the mark. So anyone who also has the name of the beast will be a problem. And also,
the number itself is damning. So there is the mark, the name, and the number. The RFID does not cover all three, r2d246.
And also recognize that the number 666 is the number of a MAN.
Keep seeking. You will be rewarded.
Grace of the Lord
