Lesson 11: The Seal of God and the Mark of the Beast: Part 1 (Ephesians 2, Romans 8, Revelation 7, 13 & 14)

What have we learned so far? The world will be divided into two groups. One is faithful to our Creator God and the other rejects God and is faithful to human achievement. Those who reject God get worse and worse and their ability to think clearly is impaired. The identifying characteristics of those who choose God, according to Revelation 14:12, is that they have faith in Jesus and they are faithful to God's commandments. Revelation 14 accords perfectly with the idea that God's faithful people rely on Jesus for their salvation, and not on their own works. But at the same time they understand that relying in faith on Jesus means taking seriously His sacrifice and directions for our life. What other consequences arise from this great divide? Let's plunge into our study of the Bible and learn more!
