SIGN POSTS OF THE TIMES
Do we acknowledge the sign posts of the times, the storms of destruction and the pathway of despair? Do we run and turn a blind eye, from the sign posts that all speak the same message?
We hear of the world’s prominent leader and father figure, Pope Benedict XVI making a formal announcement on his resignation on February 28th, 2013 and news of a billboard with the number 666 erected in Toronto, Canada and the sect leader believing he is the incarnation of Christ. We also hear about the RFID (Radio Freqency Identification Device) chip having passed the US bill and due to be implanted into every newborn child in March, 2013. Can we truly avoid the signs of the times?
St Catharines, Ontario – Doris Rosado observes her teenage daughters, Ninette and Kiara Mongrut, get the numbers “666” tattooed on their wrists, beaming with excitement. According to the the group’s messianic leader, Mr de Jesus, the number 666 symbolises his power and final authority on earth as Jesus Christ incarnated in the flesh.

The antichrist will speak of the Lord Jesus Christ being merely a person who came on the earth and performed miracles, and does not acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, the Father, the son of God, or the Holy Spirit, returning for his people, in the clouds as a thief in the night. He will deceive many with his false doctrine.
This sect leader predicts that “transformation” will award him and his followers with supernatural powers, such as the ability to fly, walk through walls and walk on water, announced the bishops daughter.
This confirms scripture as in Revelations, that the antichrist will come deceiving the world with miracles claiming he is the Christ. The false prophet of the end times is described in Revelation 13:11-15. He is also referred to as the “second beast” (Revelation 16:13, 19:20, 20:10). Together with the Antichrist and Satan, who empowers both of them, the false prophet is the third party in this unholy trinity.
Daniel 8 reveals a male goat will come from the west, across the surface of the whole earth, without touching the ground; and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes. Then he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing beside the river, and ran at him with furious power. It then goes on to say, in Daniel 8: 20, “The ram which you saw, having the two horns are the kings of Media and Persia. And the male goat is the kingdom of Greece. The large horn that is between its horns is the first king. “As for the broken horn and the four that stood up in its place, four kingdoms shall arise out of that nation, but not with its power.”
“And in the latter time of their kingdom, When the transgressions have reached their fullness, A king shall arise, Having fierce features, Who understands sinister schemes. His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power, He shall destroy fearfully, And shall prosper and thrive; He shall destroy the mighty and also the holy people.
Through his cunning, He shall cause deceit to prosper under his hand; And he shall magnify himself in his heart, He shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; But he shall be broken without human hand.”
For this family, and other members of this occult movement, these tattoos are a way of demonstrating their faith as true believers of Jose de Luis de Jesus — who they fervently believe is the second coming of Jesus Christ — before a day of reckoning they believe will wipe out most of humanity.
The group has branches in five Canadian cities 666 Mark of the Beast and SSS stands for ‘Satans Secret Service.” Whether the “mark of the beast” as stated in Revelations 14 be an RFID implant or a tattoo with the numbers 666, it is still what the bible reveals, the name and number of the beast. Revelations 14 and both Daniel 8 both describe the same warning. That is; Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” In other words, she has made all nations drink of her adulterous and sinful ways.
Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives the mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
Can we truly say to ourselves, that satan, hell and eternal damnation don’t exist? If Jesus Christ and heaven were declared true, than what do we have to lose in our search for peace? Time is running out and life is taking us on a journey to an unknown destiny, should we take a moment and review ourselves and make a choice that will bring eternal happiness, blessing and triumph in our lives? Or should we hand ourselves over to the dogs and be spewed out like vomit? My friends the choice is yours, but I certainly know which decision I will make for myself and my loved ones. Finally we remember this, “Narrow is the way that leads to eternal life, but wide is the path that leads to destruction.”
What mark will you leave behind and what example will you be, to those around you? What sign post will guide you to your final destiny? By Tania Blomfield
