SIGN, MARK and SEAL OF GOD

In this document, the sign, mark and seal of God are all one and the same thing, which is doing the work of God and keeping his commandments---all of them, and keep these first and foremost in your forehead, your mind or your brain. Do not confuse this with the mark of the beast which would be everything opposing God, or doing your own thing. - See - Fountain of Living Waters vs. Cisterns; Mark of the Beast--666

All text taken from the King James Bible

In the scriptures of Ezekiel below, we find that he is in a vision, (see chapter 8), and there is a man clothed in linen, (Jesus - see Rev.2:13-16; 19:11-16) with a writer's inkhorn by his side, and the Lord God called to this man, Ezek.9:2-3, and told him to do -

Ezek.9:4-6 - And the LORD said unto him, (Jesus), Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads (or, mark a mark) of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. (5) And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: (6) Slay utterly (Heb., to destruction) old [and] young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom [is] the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which [were] before the house. (7) And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city. - See - The Four Sore Judgments

set a mark upon the forehead - Ezek.9:4

Ex.12:7 - And they shall take of the blood, and strike [it] on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat.

In the above scripture the mark is in their foreheads per sae, in that they are following God's instructions

Rev.9:4 - And it was commanded them (the locust) that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their forehead. See - The Grass, The Branch(es) and The Vine; Parable of the Fruit - Tree of Life

Rev.22:4 - And they shall see his face; and his (the Lord's) name [shall be] in their foreheads.

In this next scripture, Rev.20:4, notice in the beginning it speaks of the thrones and judgment was given to them, then we find a colon (:) and it switches topics, now it is speaking about those who were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the word of God, because they had not worshipped the beast, (Satan), neither "his" image (or that which he stood for), neither had they received "his" (the beast/Satan's) mark in their forehead (their mind), or in their hands. Then there is a semi-colon (;) and the topic switches back to the first part of the verse as to the one's sitting on the throne who will live and reign a thousand years. It is not Satan that is sitting on the throne judging and ruling for a thousand years. If you are not following God's ways then you are working for Satan. - See - Mark of the Beast -- 666

Rev.20:4 - And I (John) saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and [I saw] the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received [his] mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. See - My Lord Shall come--When?

REMEMBER - "[his] mark," is referring to Satan here.

begin at my sanctuary - Ezek.9:6

Jer.25:29 - For, lo, I (the Lord), begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for I (the Lord) will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the LORD of hosts. - See - Dan.9:18-19; Rev.3:12; Ezek.38:21; Ps.105:16 - also see - The Four Sore Judgments

I Peter 4:17-19 - For the time [is come] that judgment must begin at the house of God: and [if it] first [begin] at us, what shall the end [be] of them that obey not the gospel of God? (18) And if the righteous scarecely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? (19) Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls [to him] in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

Is.10:12 & 5 - Wherefore it shall come to pass, [that] when the Lord hath performed his whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I (the Lord) will punish (or, visit upon) the fruit of the stout heart (Heb. of the greatness of the heart), of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his high looks. (5) O Assyria, (or, Asshur), the rod of mine anger, and (or, through) the staff in their hand is mine indignation. - See Is.14:12-27

So if God's (or, the Lord's) judgment begins at his house or sanctuary and he punishes them who do not follow God's law's and teach others to follow them -- what will it be like for the ungodly and the sinner? You need to start and follow the commandments of God -- no they have not been done away with, as I have shown you in several other documents. Bring the ten commandments back into our schools, it is time we started speaking up -- those who voice against this are of Satan or the antichrist. Our countries - Great Britain (and what were once her colonies, the original 13 colonies of USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, South Africa, Hong Kong, as well as many other countries and islands), these countries have all now separated from Great Britain, and - are all merrily going down the road blindly to hell (Satan's prison or captivity) and we do not even realize it. The only way to stop this is to repent - turn yourself back to God's ways and laws, otherwise the Lord will visit you in a way you do not want to be visited. - See - I Peter 4:17; Jer.25:29, etc., as well as The Four Sore Judgments

So what is the difference between the sign, mark and seal of God from the mark of the beast? Quite simple--the people who have the sign, mark or seal of God do and keep his commandments, and do the work of God. - See - "Charity" in, Tithing and Charity

I will give you several verses to show you the sign, mark and seal of God, that they are indeed the keeping of God's commandments. I will also give you some scripture to identify the mark of the beast.

And God has sealed Jesus--the Son of man.

John 6:27 - Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed. See - Famine / Hunger; Meat of God or Bread of Life

Deut. 6 is talking about keeping of God's commandments and statues.

Deut.6:8 - And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

Rev.14:12 - Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. See - Patience of the Saints in - Parable of the Kingdom and Sower Scriptural Definitions

Ecc.12:13 - Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. See - The Great Commandment(s); The Ten Commandments

Ex.13:9 - And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD'S law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought they out of Eygpt. (or out of bondage)

Num.15:39 - And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring: (do God's work and keep his commandments, and do not do your own thing! - (See Iniquity and Vanity and Fountain of Living Waters vs. Cisterns)

Ps.106:39 - Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with ther own inventions. (That is, went after ther own way and opposing God's ways.) See - Fountain of Living Waters vs. Cisterns

Rev.7:3 - Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

Rev.14:1- And I (John) looked, and , lo, a Lamb (Jesus) stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.

So it goes without saying, those who have the mark of the beast--are the people who do not do, or, keep the commandments of God, and are the one's who voice the strongest to do away with the commandments, or that the commandments are no longer in effect. But of course, we know the commandments have not been done away with. - See - Comforter, The Holy Ghost/Spirit, The Spirit of Truth--The Wisdom of God

Because it says in -

Rev.12:17 - And the dragon (devil, Satan) was wroth (angry) with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

"the woman" #1135 - N.T. - probably from the base of 1096 - AV - woman, wife
#1096 - a prolongation and middle voice form of the verb - AV - be preferred
In order to understand this, you will need to read Temples of God--Churches
And keep in mind, the seed is the word of God.

and went to make war with the remnant of her seed- Rev.12:17

See Gen.3:15 at the beginning of this document.

the testimony of Jesus Christ - Rev.12:17

Rev.1:2 & 9 - Who (refers to John) bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. (9) I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. - See My Lord Shall Come--When?

In Rev.9:4, the locust (see vs.8) are commanded not to hurt those men who have the seal of God in their forehead.

the seal of God in their forehead - Rev.9:4

Ex.12:23 - For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptions; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite [you]. - See - The Four Sore Judgments

In the above scripture Ex.12:23 - it is the story of Moses who has asked the Pharaoh to let his (Mose's/the Lord's) people go, and because the Pharaoh would not let the people go, the Lord told Moses what his people needed to do before the Lord would come upon every household and take the firstborn in the land. Please read the story for yourself, Exodus, chapter 12.

Now let me continue with - the seal of God in their forehead

Again -

Also see - The Grass, The Branches and The Vine; Parable of the Fruit--Tree of Life

the servants of our God - Rev.7:3

See Ezek.9:4; Eph.4:30, also -

II Tim.2:19-26 - Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, (or steady, immovable), having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. (20) But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. (21) If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, [and] prepared unto every good work. (22) Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. (23) But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. (24) And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all [men], (People), apt to teach, patient, (25) In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; (26) And [that] they may recover (or, awake, arouse) themselves out of the snare {or, clutches} of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will. - See - Temples of God--Churches; Iniquity and Vanity. The words within these { } brackets are mine.
