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. (Revelation 13:16,17)
We are in the last days. The signs that the Bible proclaimed would abound are all around us. The man of sin, the antichrist, is waiting in the wings to take his place as head of the last beast government. The whole earth awaits him and because they have rejected the Gospel of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, they are making their vessels ready to receive the mark of the beast. What is one more tatoo, affixed to your hand or forehead? If only they had believed the Word of God they would understand that the mark of the beast, once taken, there is no repentance. Not only that but they will be tomented day and night (Revelation 14:9,10)
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12)
In tattoo business, profits are hardly skin deep
No exact figures are available that outline the size of the tattoo industry in the U.S., but several years ago Inc. estimated there were about 15,000 tattoo parlors in America, making somewhere north of $2.3 billion annually. And a Pew Research Center study says more than a third of Americans ages 18 to 25 have a tattoo, as well as 40 percent of folks in the 26 to 40 range. In contrast, the study found only about 10 percent of people age 41 to 64 are tattooed.
There is still time to repent. Turn to Jesus Christ and receive Him as Saviour and Lord. Read your Bible. Ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins. Now tell someone what Jesus has done for you.
