This is a question we all have to ask ourselves during these days. In the old church everyone would of said “Amen.” It was easy to get an “Amen” out of everyone on this subject. Mainly, because they were not enduring persecution as we are right now. Mainly, because they were not living during the days of the Mark of the Beast as we are right now. For a believer the ultimate punish is to take the Mark of the Beast:
“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: Rev 14:9
The Bible says that you will be sentenced to hell for taking the Mark and you also will be tortured here on earth for taking the Mark. It’s the ultimate sin of sins, I pray that the lord gives us all strength to stand boldly against this Mark, but most importantly I pray that he also assures us that even if we have to die in order to not take it, that our Lord God almighty has the power to raise us from the dead and he will.
“the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
