The Mark Of The Beast

Lily Among Thorns Song Of Solomon 2:2 In the Last Days 2nd Peter 3:3,

Memories, Chapter 1, Page 7

I was always led back to the safe harbor of my First Love, and what a most dangerous love Jesus had turned out to be, because if I hadn’t been through my own trails and tribulations, I would never had believed five years later. My life was wonderfully routine. Dressed in my usual fair for the office, a classic tailored dress or a matching tasteful pantsuit, I was disappointed my best friend Judy had to take a rain check for lunch today. She had the sweetest freckled face, with red hair to exemplify her own fresh and airy disposition.

I still made the most of my time by spending it with the Word and made it a point to sit apart in a semi-crowded cafeteria. I forged on ahead to read what was considered the most controversial material of our day and time as it is written in the Book of Revelation 13: 11-18. And I beheld another beast coming out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by the sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 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.

Author’s Commentary

Grace be to you the reader, and welcome to the peradventure, a Biblical tale of a damsel living through the perilous journey of the “Last Days”, prior to the Second Coming of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The character Lily, a young woman in her mid-twenties, is not without experiencing the hardship of being falsely accused and at the mercy of a immoral government. Compounded by the heartache of a lost love. Lily truly is now ever thankful she is in a happy place at the present, finding herself head over heels in love and engaged to be married to a wonderful man, and for the first time in a long time. Lily can optimistically look to the future and anticipate good things are ahead. 

Yet Lily at this same time is living in a world where Bible Prophecy is currently coming alive, and unavoidably so. A Global Beast System is on the rise, and right along with it is a fundamentalist hatred toward the Bible Believing Christian. Our heroine as a Believer in the Bible “As It Is Written”. Lily hopes for the best, but at the same time in doing so. Lily has no delusions of the impending dangers on the road up ahead!
