And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
There is and always has been a lot of talk about the end of time. People have various ideas, but when I want a trusted, time proven source I always look to the Bible. Some 2000 years ago the Apostle John wrote that a time would come in the future that a person would not be able to purchase or sell anything without having the proper credentials; he refers to it as a mark. It is important to realize that this prophecy doesn't apply just to one certain geographical area, but the entire world.
As I write this devotion people are protesting all across the world in revolt to the restrictions placed on them, in particular to buy and sell. In places all across the world millions of people are required to take a vaccine to leave their home, report to work, or buy food at the grocery store. The important thing to note is this is the first time in history that a mandate like this has effected the world.
Is this the end of time? Is it possible that John wrote about the very thing we are witnessing? I have already decided, my mind is made up, you decide for yourself. If you will take the time to read the Bible I think you would agree it's like watching the daily news. Regardless of the world events, I encourage you to be ready, for in an hour as you think not the Son Of Man cometh.
