Mark or Not

Mark or Not

The Mark or not


Many people have been contemplating whether the Covid- Vaccine is the mark of the beast or not. It definitely is not the mark of the beast, but as Christians we need to recognize some things that is happening around this topic in the world. This can be the start of that process, but for us to say that it’s the mark, we have to assume many things.

We find division among people, which is not the will of God. People ask me how to deal with those who are taking the vaccine, and I simply say that we need to respect each other’s choices. We need to have a open heart towards those who do the opposite of what we believe regarding the vaccine, and be able to help them if their choice didn’t go as they thought it would.

Those who took the vaccine, I believe nothing is too hard for my God.

But I want us to look at a few things, like – What inspires people to take the vaccine?

Is it fear? Is it intimidation?


Isaiah 45: 5

For I am the Lord God, and there is no other God beside me…


If we do things out of fear, it’s bowing before fear instead of bowing before God. If this happened, we must confess the sin and repent.


We have the Word of God on which we build, knowing our Life is found on it and in it.

This world has nothing solid; this world continuously changes their minds on what they believe is right and wrong.


2 Corinthians 4: 4

Satan, who is the god of this worldhas blinded the minds of those who don't believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. 


The devil is using this season the world is in to try and gain control through manipulating and sowing fear.

We as believers must not allow ourselves to be blinded by his schemes.

We should also understand that unbelievers won’t easily see the ungodly ways in this whole season.

We must stand with the truth and expose the lies.


1 Corinthians 6: 19

You surely know that your body is a temple where the Holy Spirit lives.


The devil wants to demolish our bodies/His temple. He wants sickness and poisons to come in, and we must be aware of this.
