Mark of the Beast teaching controversy- Part 2

The destructive effects of Calvinism/OSAS and dispensational premillennialism (pretribulation rapture theory) are being revealed. It's all part of Satan's strategy to deceive Christians and non-Christians into taking the Mark of the Beast. Now some prominent mainstream theologians are teaching that people can receive forgiveness and salvation even after receiving the Mark of the Beast. Do such theologians have some major reading comprehension problems?

Revelation 14:9-12 (NLT):
"Then a third angel followed them, shouting, “Anyone who worships the beast and his statue or who accepts his mark on the forehead or on the hand 10 must drink the wine of God’s anger. It has been poured full strength into God’s cup of wrath. And they will be tormented with fire and burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and the Lamb. 11 The smoke of their torment will rise forever and ever, and they will have no relief day or night, for they have worshiped the beast and his statue and have accepted the mark of his name.”

12 This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently, obeying his commands and maintaining their faith in Jesus."

Revelation 7:13-14 (NLT):
"Then one of the twenty-four elders asked me, “Who are these who are clothed in white? Where did they come from?”

14 And I said to him, “Sir, you are the one who knows.”

Then he said to me, “These are the ones who died in the great tribulation. They have washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb and made them white."

Revelation 20:4-6 (NLT):
"Then I saw thrones, and the people sitting on them had been given the authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony about Jesus and for proclaiming the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his statue, nor accepted his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They all came to life again, and they reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

5 This is the first resurrection. (The rest of the dead did not come back to life until the thousand years had ended.) 6 Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. For them the second death holds no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him a thousand years."

*****The bottom line is- don't ever worship the Beast nor take the mark of the Beast, no matter who tries to excuse it and give you a false hope. It will cost you your salvation and result in eternal torment if you do. It is the ultimate test of faithfulness to God in the midst of persecution. Starvation and death will have to be suffered (consequences of not worshiping the Beast and taking his mark) in order to pass this test. If you fail that test, it's game over.
The reward of eternal life is greater than the sufferings like starvation and death in the midst of persecution in this world.

All sociopaths will get what they deserve in the future

Recently, I've been seeing a celebrity having a hard time in his own life. He's clearly a sociopath and people have hated him for a long time. I didn't agree with his sociopathic behavior and tactics, but I always thought perhaps some good might still be in him. Nevertheless, things are falling apart in his own life despite the success he's had in the past. Now people are trolling him and enjoying seeing his fall from glory. I hope he learns his lesson, repents, and becomes a better person so that God will lift him up in due time. However, if he chooses to continue to indulge in his sociopathic behavior, he invites his own destruction. This is how Satan blinds people today (he blinds them through their success to make them think that as long as they have success, it's ok to be evil) . He is the ultimate sociopath. With human sociopaths, change is still possible, even though it's a difficult and rare thing for them to change. However, with Satan, he will never …

Pastor Anish Kavalam's ban on pants and ties for men

I found this video funny [refer to Pastor Anish Kavalam's criticism of those who wear pants and ties]. I like the Mr. Bean reactions along with the circus music in the background. Made it funnier. I've heard some sermons of Pastor Anish Kavalam calling out people (both men and women) regarding immodest clothing and carnal minded behavior in church meetings- which were good messages. However, his ban against pants and ties are going to the extreme of the conservative end of the spectrum. Also, in this clip, some of the pastors sitting behind him are also wearing pants. Thus, his criticism seems hypocritical in that manner also. This war between extremist conservatives and extremist liberals along with the elitism promoted by both groups is what is destroying Malayalee churches. Malayalees have been terrorists (through psychological abuse/bullying) in their churches for a long time. It's part of their church politics and elitism. Now it has spread to the internet where psych…

Brethren vs Pentecostal debate (Snehasamvadham)

Couple of months back, various Malayalee Brethren and Pentecostal Bible teachers came together to have a debate regarding various topics. Refer to the following links:

(1). Pentacost-Brethren Snehasamvadham- Dallas 2016

(2).Post-debate thoughts by Pr. Shibu Peediakal and Br. Ashish Jacob

(3).Pr. Shibu Peediakal refuting Brethren Assembly Preachers again

One of the topics that Pastor Shibu has addressed in various clips on his Youtube channel is regarding speaking in tongues (which of course, the Brethren teach that this gift has ceased with the early Church). Personally, I don't believe that the gift of tongues has ceased. Will all believers speak in tongues to demonstrate they have been baptized by the Holy Ghost? It's a very controversial question and subject. From studying Scripture, I personally haven't been convinced that speaking in tongues is a mandatory requirement for all believers. Each has a different gift that the Holy Ghost gives them in order to minister to o…
