When There’s No Other Option

Ecclesiastes 1:9-11 (NKJV)

“That which has been is what will be,
That which is done is what will be done,
And there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there anything of which it may be said,
“See, this is new”?
It has already been in ancient times before us.
There is no remembrance of former things,
Nor will there be any remembrance of things that are to come
By those who will come after.”

The Book of Revelation is at the forefront with regard to the end times, but we must remember that when John was on the isle of Patmos for the testimony of Christ, there were 7 churches in Asia Minor, what is now Turkey.

After the Lord sent the warning to Ephesus, Pergamos, Laodicia, Sardis, and Thyatira, and gave praise to Smyrna and Philadelphia, the theater switches to heaven and then we see the opening of the 7 seals/4 apocalypse horsemen, the 7 bowls, the three woes, and the 7 trumpets.

In chapter 7, we see the 144K, 12K from each tribe with the Lord’s seal on their forehead. Then we see a perplexing story of a woman giving birth to the Child and then escaping from the Dragon (satan) for a season. Then the story of the origin of satan and his angels, and then the Beast for the end times.

Then we see the Beast and the False Prophet emerge and impose tremendous restrictions on the world. But first, the Beast would be healed after being mortally wounded. This Beast would cause fire to fall from heaven to show his power, and people would be thoroughly convinced that he is God.

He imposes on all. Rich or poor. Bond or free. Small and great to receive the mark in his right hand, or forehead, and that no one could buy or sell unless they worship this Beast and received the mark, or the number, or his name on their right hand or forehead.

But when you go back into chapter 7, you will see that a number that no one could number would refuse to receive the mark and were beheaded for the testimony of Christ. An angel that blew one of the 7 trumpets was sent to preach the everlasting gospel and would also preach that if anyone receives the mark of the Beast, or the number, or his name would taste of the wrath of God.

Essentially, they were defaulted as eternal enemies of God that will NEVER be redeemed.

These people observed that there was no other option.

You’re forced to get the mark, or starve.

Hence, it leads to today.

A war between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated is the precursor war between the marked and the unmarked.

Stay tuned.

The Minister's Crucible is designed to inform the Body of Christ about the inner workings of the ministry. The word Crucible from Latin, is "crux" where we get the word "cross" from. It also means a "metal container" where metals and other substances are melted or are subjected to higher temperatures, put to the temperature test. The Lord Jesus said "If any man desires to follow after Me, let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me." Let's take up our cross and follow Him.
