Seal of God and Mark of the Beast

There are two kinds of people: there are the children of God (sons of God) who do the will of God and receive the seal of the Holy Spirit and others who are Satan’s own, those who ignore the will of God and seek their own good and their own enjoyment in life. On the basis of this division I studied the seal of God and the Mark of the Beast. There is also a third group: those who have not heard of God and Christ or who are children and too young to understand.

Matthew and Luke write Jesus have said, “He who is not with me is against me; and he who does not gather with me scatters (Mat 12:30 and Luke 11:23). If a man hears and understands the gospel, he must make a choice; either he believes and begins to change his life to the will of God or then he does not believe. It may take some time to make a decision, but sometimes it has to be done. Some may think “it was interesting, but I do not …”. Then, in fact, he will choose his destiny according to Matthew 15:13: But He answered and said, every plant which my heavenly Father has not planted shall be rooted up. – Such a man does not receive the seal of God, but rather the mark of the beast. Those who take the mark of the beast and believe in his lies will receive their judgment because as 2 The 2:12 says, Then all who have not believed the truth but have taken pleasure in unrighteousness will be condemned.
