Many of you will probably have heard or read about the most recent, blatant worship to Satan in Detroit, Michigan through the ceremonial unveiling of the statue of the high demon Baphomet. This is the same demon who was originally worshiped in the city of Mendes in ancient Egypt. But that is not the main point of this post. As part of the ceremony, those who bought a $25 ticket to attend were instructed to sign a document on which was written the following:
I agree that by signing this document under any name, given or adopted, actual or pseudonymous, I am hereby avowing my soul to Satan (aka Abbadon, aka Lucifer, aka Beelzebub, aka The Antichrist) . . . I do so knowing that He (aka The Fallen One, aka The Father of Lies) or any of His representatives may choose to collect my eternal soul at any time, with or without notice. I understand that my signature or mark representing any name, real or made up, upon these papers constitutes a lasting and eternal contract, and that there will be no further negotiations on the matter of my eternal soul.
Compare that with what Saint Nilus had to say about the mark of the beast:
On the seal (the mark) will be written the following: ‘I am yours.’ ‘Yes, you are mine.’ ‘I go willingly, not by force.’ ‘And I accept you in accordance with your will, and not by force.’
Some of you may disagree; some of you may mock and scorn at all of the above. But the fact remains that those who did not reject the screed on the said document and signed it, even if they did not think anything would or could happen, now or at any time in the future, in both essence and fact legalistically signed over their souls to Satan for $25. And Satan will ‘happily’ take them, albeit at his own convenience, because he is a first-class legalist; that is his specialty. The above is a beginning, manifest example of the mark of the beast (Rv 13 & 14), which is no more, no less, than consecration to Satan; knowing or otherwise.
Only one thing and one thing alone supercedes the mark of the beast and that is the Seal of God the Father (Rv 3:10-12), which is granted to a soul, to a human being, through consecration to Him. Reserved specifically for the time when the mark would become openly manifest and celebrated in the world – and that is in our present time, which we have brought about by our own free will choice – the Seal of the Heavenly Father, the lineage of which dates back to the Seal of Yahweh originally conferred upon Aaron, has the power to protect souls and annul the mark of the beast.
There is no other option, no other way, in the days to come. An epic battle will soon ensue between the declared children of light and the declared children of darkness – a spiritual and physical battle, the proportions of which have never been seen before – and it will go down in the annals of history. The time will come and is already here when you will belong either to God the Almighty Father or to Satan. The middle way, the way of the lukewarm (Rv 3:15-16), has been taken away by Christ Himself, so that the sifting of humankind can take place and those who are for God become everlasting witnesses for the glory of His mighty Name.
