16 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 : R13:16
This is not to bring animosity, nervousness or to get people riled up since man loves darkness rather than light he is his own worst enemy. After this life make no mistake about it comes judgment and if you're not covered by the blood of Christ and you're not truly saved the chances of you having eternal life is futile but rather such people they be dammed to hell because they had not a love of thy truth that they might have been saved. We have to be extremely careful because God's way is not the way of the world . The way of the world is the way of the evil one who is the father of lies and the god of this world. 666 Did you know not only is the world deceived but it worships the evil one and many things are being worshiped in many different ways through idolatry and all sorts of things and it takes wisdom/God gives the ability to understand these things. Proverbs 2:6-9
Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the life and the truth and the real way but it is not the way most people perceive. Most people perceive a human carnal understanding and they are on the wrong path to destruction but they see things with human understanding and don't have the capacity most of them to understand because God has not opened their eyes but the god of this world has closed it/manipulated them to the glory of the true gospel. Galatians 8:1-9 2 Corinthians 4:4
Every day brings a new day and the sun goes up and goes down and around the world we have many new births including animals not just human beings but we also have many funerals. We have people being murdered by crime and we have people being assaulted by wickedness and we have hospitals that are in dire straight /not enough funding including the police and then we have people that have great blessings where they're flourishing. Hospitals full because of sick people too and people being displaced because of war. We have young people that are in schools, universities/college with rich parents whom are well-off parents that can afford to pay for them then we have poor people that have to work hard to make ends meet. We have people unable to buy their children milk and we have child abuse and transgenderism in all sorts of evils on the planet right now. Abortions and suicides too. We have celebrities lost in a sea of sins being worshiped by the world and that uphold all the abominable sins against a holy God and if you follow these people God warns you might lose your soul. James 4:4
Christ is the life but you need to learn what that life truly is because it's absent of any type of "pride" or "idolatry" which the world is embedded in and glued to like there's no tomorrow. We also have something called doctrines of devils than anybody thinking that this doesn't matter is probably going to lose their soul and spend eternity in hell and that is not something that you take lightly.
So I remember getting into the Arts and being a young guy and having some sort of talent at playing various instruments. I remember going to guitar class in the early days where I took a few lessons but I already knew how to play pretty well and the teacher would leave the class to go to the washroom for example and I would excite the class and when he came back nobody listened to him anymore they were all excited. Then I did play live and play with different people and I thought I knew it all but I knew nothing compared to some of these people who had stage presence and live experience and later on when I collaborated with some people playing and touring I had some talent and they saw it in me but I made mistakes like an idiot and made a fool out of myself. Luckily there was a couple of people that stuck up for me and I learned my lesson. We can't think we know it all and we can't know if we don't lean on God's understanding. If you don't know God and you're not a born again believer your carnal understanding is futile. JOHN 3:3 I remember one of the best drummers in the world and he was what you call a classical drummer. There are such guitar players too and there are piano players with this kind of skill. When he became famous in the band he came from he explained what he did was move everything one step to the right and fame came. Great inventions came/are coming such as in that advare above by great minds and now we have something called AI. It's a dangerous thing along with a very incredible thing because it can give you tools to learn but it also can be very dangerous just like anything in life. You know Christ said / instructed the devil to get behind him because he savers not the things that are of God but of men. Jesus had no vanity, no beauty that he should be desired but was actually despised yet he was perfect and the father was well pleased in/with him. God tells us man is without excuse and he loves darkness. But the driving home factor is that men really don't understand and God tells us none understand and all have gone astray. Now I'm not referring to saved people or true believers specifically but it could affect even in some ways saved people. Do we love the things Christ loves? Do we abide in him or do we simply do things for self satisfaction and in/for self desires? Do we truly know him or are we hypocrites ? Are we storing up treasures for heaven or are we storing up corrupt paraphernalia embedded in evils for hell that will secure our arrival and place holder in a place called hell.
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, There is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; There is none that doeth good, no, not one.
In my after thoughts and after notes the Bible says let God be true and every man a liar and what is written in the holy scriptures is true it's not fiction. So with that this is something that occurred in the past. Just to let you know it's impossible to serve two masters and it means exactly what it means. We wrestle not against flesh and blood. Remember that.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. Genesis 6:4 KJV
