THE MARK OF GOD AND THE MARK OF THE BEAST.
In a meeting a farmer asked me, “What about the mark of the beast?”
Immediately the Spirit of God spoke and declared “I TOO HAVE A MARK!”
The seal of God is the mark of ownership through manifest sonship and His authority.
Psalm 2:7 I will declare the decree: the LORD has said to me, You are my Son; this day have I begotten you.
8 Ask of me, and I shall give you the heathen for your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.
9 You shall break them with a rod of iron; you shall dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
The Father gives the bride authority over the harvest.
The Father showed me a powerful prophetic vision of the mark of the beast vs the mark of God.
He is now marking the sons within the fires of purification to become His seal of ownership and authority within the earth during the time of the tribulation by which the mark of God shall be placed on the foreheads of the heirs of salvation.
Are we not ordained to do mighty exploits during the reign of the anti Christ regime?
Daniel 11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: #but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be helped with a little help: but many shall join to them with flatteries.
35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.
He is literally burning himself into us until we are made 1 with God, as He weaves us together with the DNA of scripture according to Hebrews 4:12 and the sons will operate through His pure discernment as everything shall be exposed and laid bare before them.
We are becoming the habitation and dwelling of the Word, the Spirit and the Father. We are His living temple being cleansed by the Spirit of burning.
For the word of God is living, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear witness in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit: and these three are one.
8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
Out of the furnace and fires of this deep foundational cleansing we shall be sent into the harvest on massive scale and He is going to set the world on fire through us as His torchbearers.
We see all of this already declared in the prophets.
Isaiah 4: 2 In that day shall the branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and splendid for them that have escaped of Israel.
3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remains in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even everyone that is recorded among the living in Jerusalem:
4 When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from its midst by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.
5 And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a covering.
6 And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and from rain.
1 Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD comes, for it is near at hand;
2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great and strong people; there has not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, through the years of many generations.
3 A fire devours before them; and behind them a flame burns: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devours the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
6 Before their face the people shall be in great pain: all faces are drained of color.
7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march each one on his way, and they shall not break their ranks:
8 Neither shall one jostle another; they shall walk each one in his path: and when they lunge between the swords, they shall not be wounded.
9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.
10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
11 And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executes his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can endure it?
12 Therefore also now, says the LORD, turn you even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
13 And tear your hearts, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and relents from sending calamity.
14 Who knows if he will return and have pity, and leave a blessing behind him; even a grain offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?
15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that nurse: #let the bridegroom go forth from his chamber, and the bride out of her chamber. (THE SPIRIT AND THE BRIDE SAYS, COME)
17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare your people, O LORD, and give not your heritage to reproach, that the nations should rule over them: why should they say among the people, Where is their God?
18 Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.
19 Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you grain, and wine, and oil, and you shall be satisfied with them: and I will no more make you a reproach among the nations:
20 But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the eastern sea, and his back toward the western sea, and his stench shall come up, and his foul smell shall come up, because he has done great things. (This is the army of the anti- Christ – Ezekiel 39:2)
21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.
22 Be not afraid, you beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring up, for the tree bears her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.
23 Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he has given you the former rain faithfully, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
24 And the threshing floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.
25 And I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, and the consuming locust, and the cutting locust, my great army which I sent among you.
26 And you shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, who has dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
27 And you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30 And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 #The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD comes.
The sign in the sun, moon and stars declares the end of tribulation and the coming of the Lord Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give its light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD has said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.
The same harvest during the reign of the anti-Christ and time of great shaking is revealed and proclaimed in Revelation 13 and 14.
Father also gave me Ezekiel 6-9 which speaks of the time and pattern of judgment.
Ezekiel 9:4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, #and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that are done in its midst.
This vision the Holy Spirit confirmed through the ministry of J Leland Earls.
“This is the day of My sealing says the Lord. For even now have I sealed you for this day. Listen closely to that which I say to you, for this is that which I would have you know.
Those whom I have sealed, says the Lord, are to become My seal of authority to the people. To be sealed is to come into a realm of authority that is not known by the average Christian, yes, not even by those sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.
For those I seal shall be used of me to speak my words with power and authority, even as the words that fell from the lips of the Son of God, for Him had the Father sealed. (John 6:27). I say to you, you shall be used to speak forth my words with the stamp of my authority, and that word shall be confirmed by my power, says the Lord.
Would you be used of me in this day, says God?
Then seek me with all your heart and soul and being. Give yourself unreservedly to me, for those I use in this end time shall without fail give themselves to me and to me only, that they may gain that realm of service and glory to their God where nothing matters but the consuming desire to be one with their God on the altar of sacrifice, that they may be a sweet smelling savor to Him in this day.
There must be no compromise and no delay for those who would hear His voice and be sealed for an end-time ministry to their God. For even now this sealing progresses and soon its first phase will be consummated; then shall fury break forth on the earth. But those whom I have sealed shall speak forth my word with authority and power, and I will confirm that word, says the Lord.
We now come to the second factor that is involved in this sealing; an absolute protection by their God. Those who are sealed cannot in any way be destroyed or harmed by the enemy, for I will put a wall of fire about them, and that which comes against them shall be consumed, says the Lord. For is it not written that nothing shall harm those that are sealed? (Ezek. 9:6).
Yes, truly, I will protect them and keep them from all the power of the enemy. Only that which has been decreed beforehand shall be done to them, and only that portion which they have willingly agreed to shall be theirs. For I am not a God that does lie or that does not keep that which I promise; For what I promise, that will I do.
For those who have agreed, there shall come a time of decision as to what path they shall take, and they can determine whether to give themselves in life or in death. If they choose the latter way, then they shall be placed in my hand to do with as I will; and even as the Son of God who went before and set the pattern, so shall they be required to lay down their lives for my sake. But this shall not be a matter of compulsion, but of a voluntary sacrifice, even that sacrifice of my saints which has been ordained for this hour.
For even as the Son of God laid down His life, so must they lay down their lives for their brethren. This is that which is spoken of in Revelation 6:11, where it says that those who have gone on are waiting for their brethren who shall be killed for the sake of the gospel. Therefore I say to you, some of those who are sealed and are under the absolute protection of their God shall lay down their lives, even as Isaac (in type) laid down his life and was received from the dead. For they are the ‘sons of promise’ in a special way, who shall inherit a more excellent name even as the Son of God inherited a more excellent name than His brethren (Heb. 1:4). They shall also receive a more excellent position in the kingdom of God because they have laid down their lives.
Not all who are sealed shall lay down their lives. For there are those who shall be taken without the experience of death, even the firstfruits who shall be taken out (Rev. 14:1-5). They shall also inherit a more excellent name because they have been willing to be prepared ahead of time and have lived a life of holiness and separation unto me, and have not contaminated themselves with the harlot systems of this world. Even so have they kept themselves pure to me.
So shall they be taken without having to lay down their lives in death, for yes, truly they were willing to lay down their lives in life and make with me a covenant of sacrifice (Psalm 50:5), even a living sacrifice to me. Therefore they shall be taken and receive a name above all others, says the Lord.
Those who have failed to make this kind of a living sacrifice, if they desire the greater glory of the martyr’s crown, shall be required in this last day to make that greater sacrifice of laying down their physical lives for the sake of the gospel, even as the martyrs of old. For they have not been willing to make the kind of living sacrifice necessary for me to keep them from all the defilements of this world, that I might take them to myself before that great day of tribulation comes. Those I take shall be to me in the heavens a helpmeet in the time of trouble and I will use them mightily for my glory says the Lord.
Others shall be sealed during the time of great tribulation, even as some are being sealed now. For first come the firstfruits who shall be sealed and taken to me before the tribulation. I say to you, that many of these have been sealed already and even now are anticipating my call to them.
Secondly, there are those being sealed now who shall wear the martyr’s crown. If they are willing, they shall lay down their lives for the sake of the gospel in the tribulation impending. Others are now being sealed who will not aspire to the glory of the martyr’s crown, but shall indeed be used mightily by me in the days ahead, says the Lord. These, along with that great company which shall be sealed during the tribulation, shall be received to me in my kingdom at the close of the tribulation.
But I say to you, those who are being sealed before the tribulation, and who are willing now to give themselves wholly to me; these, I say, shall have a greater crown of glory than those who are sealed during the tribulation. For they have been willing to be prepared ahead of time, even before the hour of trial impels all men to make their choice (Rev. 3:10). So now is the time, my son, to lay down yourself on my altar as a living sacrifice, that though you art not among those (the firstfruits) to be taken ahead of time, you shall receive a crown of glory that shall shine as the stars in their brilliance.
Concerning those who shall be sealed during the time of tribulation, they too shall have a choice placed before them. Those who aspire to the glory of the martyr’s crown shall have an opportunity to lay down their lives for the gospel’s sake. I say, this is a voluntary choice. For my seal of protection shall be upon them. But they shall choose whether to give themselves in life or in death, and thus in giving themselves, so shall be their lot and glory in the coming kingdom.
Now I say to you, except for the firstfruits which are taken out, those who have laid down their lives in death shall be received into glory first, even as the two witnesses. mentioned in Revelation 11:12. They shall be the first to meet with their Lord and receive the crown of glory awaiting them. Then shall a great host of living ones follow them shortly and be translated without seeing death (I Cor. 15:51-54, I Thess. 4:16-17); and so shall they ever be with the Lord to fill their place in the kingdom according to that which they have chosen, says the Lord.
Now we come to the third factor in the sealing. It is even a sealing of the Lord’s provision for the hour of trial. For the Lord will provide that which is needed, whether physical or spiritual. The sealing provides for the abundant resources of your God to accomplish that which He has commissioned the sealed ones to do. Even now you shall look to the Lord to provide all your needs and you shall not fear says the Lord. Did I not feed my people in the wilderness, and am I not the same God today?
And did I not feed my servant Elijah by the ravens when there was drought in all the land? Even so shall I provide for you out of the abundance of my resources says God who is your Keeper. Therefore trust me and know for [ ] sure that I will keep you and provide for you in that day.
Now we shall consider the final factor in the sealing. It is even that which I have spoken to you before. It is the very presence and fellowship of your God to walk and talk with you as I did with Adam in the beginning. For those I seal shall know my voice and I will commune with them and talk with them, and they shall know that it is I, the Lord, that does speak to them.
And if they shall obey my voice and hear that which I speak to them, so shall I continue to speak to them and bring them understanding. Even so shall I control their minds and thoughts as they yield themselves to me in perfect obedience, says the Lord.”
