“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace…” 1 Corinth 14:33
Satan tries to copy God because he wants to BE God himself.
Jesus IS resurrected (Matt 28:6)
The beast is described as “it was, and is not, and is to come.” (Rev 17:8)
Who does that remind you of? Alive, dead and alive again?
Jesus DOES miracles (Mark 1:21-28)
Antichrist (Satan) seems to do miracles (2 Thess 2:9): “The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders.”
But only because he’s granted (limited) powers “in the site of the beast.” In Rev 13:13-14: “He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast.”
When we are saved, we are sealed by God.
“In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.” Ephesians 1:13-14
Even in last days, when God’s wrath is poured out, those “sealed” by God will escape.
“And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.” Rev 9:4
It’s not surprising, then, that Satan might choose this way of mimicking God at the end; by “sealing” unbelievers with his own mark.
Although some believe an implantable chip may be the route of the Antichrist, the mark of the beast (666) worn as a BADGE OF SERVITUDE, makes a lot of sense.
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 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. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Rev 13:16-18
