    You didn't answer the questions - #1 Where does it say the Church will not be here to face the Anti-Christ and His Mark?
    #2 Who are God's Elect?

    Scriptures ONLY - no blah, blah blah of the religious carnal mind

    Peace in Father , Son and Holy Spirit

    I don't know why you keep coming to this thread and posting things which are completely off topic.

    (1 Cor. 11.26 - on the Lord's Supper - isn't talking about Israel.)

    Absolutely not off topic - “’Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD." Leviticus 19:28

    The commandment God gave in Leviticus 19:28 is a warning for the coming Mark of the Beast - Thus whoever rejects the commandment and gets Tattooed with the Mark will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire.

    The context of the Leviticus 19 verse seems to be pagan necromancy. I don't see the church - which started at Pentecost and will be complete at the Rapture - going through the Great Tribulation in Matthew 24.

    Moses was with the Church in the Wilderness -
    This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.
    This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:

    You have been taught religion my dear brother in Christ.

    There have always been the a Chosen Elect of God since He created Adam and Eve - Have you never read about Melchizedeck?
    The word Church is the same as Congregation used in the Old Testament - Congregation = Church

    Have you never read where the Lord Jesus Christ said "It is written" and again where He said "I did not come to destroy but to fulfill"?

    I am not on the same page when it comes to what the church is; it began at Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came to indwell.

    (Why not start another thread about what you want to talk about?)

    God said - Do not take the Tattoo(the Mark) Revelations
    The Rapture does not occur before the resurrection. The Resurrection occurs at the Lord's Second Coming which will not occur until the man of sin is revealed - 2 Thessalonians 2

    So you are going to tell people 'It's ok take the Tattoo (the Mark) because we (the Church) won't be here (pre-trib rapture lie) so it really can't be the Mark that God has warned us of.
    I hear a Pastor on the radio saying Matthew 24 does not apply to us (the Church) !!!
    Denying Christ's words and warnings will only result in death - does not matter who says what - only thing that matters is what the Lord Jesus Christ told us - "See I (Jesus) have told you all things..."

    Get on the same page of Jesus my brother - His Word and not man's.

    Jesus told us to watch and pray always that we would be accounted worthy to escape all those things that would take place during the tribulation period. That tells me that there is a way of escape. I do believe in a pre-tribulation rapture, but only for those who are closely following Jesus. The lukewarm will not go.

    As for tattoos, I do not believe that Christians should get them. I do believe the scripture in Leviticus that tells us not to print marks on our body is all I need to know it is wrong. I also believe that this is a form of defiling our Temple, which is the Temple of the Holy Ghost if we are saved. I personally believe that all of this obsession with tattoos is demon inspired, and I have noticed that few get a single tattoo and stop with that. They become obsessed with getting more and more. They spend a great deal of money on tattoos, and if unchecked, they seek to cover every inch of their body with one tattoo after another. It is often not even about something meaningful, but just something they will call "body art," which is more like graffiti to me. That is my personal opinion. You can take it or leave it, but just observe how much money is wasted on tattoos and how it becomes an obsession. It is obvious to me that this is not of God.

    Much Love to You and thanks for your reply filled with wisdom- I have to go now but will talk with you again late Satuday or Sunday - Have to work Saturday.
    Stay strong in the FAITH and in HIS HOLY SPIRIT and above all things - Do not take the Mark, which is here now and soon to be imposed upon the world.

    Read 1 Thessalonians and 2 Thessalonians and 1 John 2:18

    Agreed @Cachalot
    Several times over the last year plus, I've asked kindly for you to stop tagging me in these tatt/piercing type posts @farouk . You KNOW where I stand and it gets kind of tiring to repeat it over and over. Bottom line for me/ If you want to wear scripture verses, how about a T-shirt? Is it a sin to have one? I do not think so. Okay, byeeeeeeeeeeeee! :D

    @post Well, if you did have it done, it would be the sort of conversation-starter that is practised very widely. FYI: FHII said:

    I was thinking about what you said, and you well may be right. I do not think just any tattoo is the mark of the beast, but I do not believe that we should get tattoos. I have seen some very attractive women that completely ruined their appearance because they had tattoos all over their arms and legs. They look awful, and I have never understood the reason anyone wants them, unless it is to fit in with the crowd, since everyone around them is getting tattoos. To me, the scripture in Leviticus is very clear when it says not to print marks on your body.

    Back to the mark of the beast, we know that with this mark, you will not be able to buy or sell without it, so it could be a tattoo with some kind of barcode, or it could be a microchip. I know they are using something like this in India already. Do you have information about a timeline for when they are planning to roll this out in America? You are absolutely right in warning everyone not to get the mark. We know what Revelations says about those who choose to take it. There is no repentance for them. They are doomed. I have no intention of getting it. I hope that nobody else here will take it.

    Ignore it...

    15 But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.
    17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
    20 For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.
    21 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing (tattoos) whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak. (Rom 14:15, 17, 20, 21)

    God knows All things and He tells us, His Children, how to avoid death.
    Do not tremble or fear. Have I not told you and declared it long ago? You are My witnesses! Is there any God but Me? There is no other Rock; I know not one.”… Isaiah 44:7

    This is why God commanded Israel - Do not cut or mark yourselves.
    God said this because He knew how it connected to satan and the Mark of the Beast when the Anti-Christ is revealed.

    Do a search on bitchute.com for Luciferase - Luciferase is the Mark of the Beast - It will be a Medical ID tattoo with Nano Technology and other DNA/Gene altering chemicals that will change people from what God originally created them to be. This is why God says to anyone who takes the Mark = No Forgiveness, No one can ask Jesus to be forgiven from taking the Mark, God will never receive them, even if they were once Christians.
    The mRNA Vaxx shots are preparing everyone for the Mark

    As in the days of Noah so shall the coming of the Son of Man be....

    Just a FYI, if you read my posts on this subject I DO NOT condem or judge anyone for getting Tattoo. With that said there is a CLEAR warning from God in Leviticus 19:28 which is God's Foresight and brings us to Revelations 13:16
    These two scriptures are connected as a warning to God's Children.
    The final Tattoo of Satan's kingdom here on earth is the Mark of the Beast.
    There is No Forgiveness for this disregard of God's Final Warning and Commandment.

    That is interesting, because you make another good point. Tattoos will be a huge turn off to a lot of people if you are trying to witness to them. Even if the tattoo is something like a religious symbol like a cross or a fish, there are many who know about the scripture in Leviticus and will look at it in light of the scripture that says obedience is better than sacrifice. I know that the other side of this argument is that some believe it will help them witness to bikers and gang members and things like that, but what are you winning them to? I do know a lot of people have tattoos, and never knew about the scripture in Leviticus and have no conscience about it, and I know I will never convince them it is a sin. God will forgive someone who asks him for forgiveness, but I do not think He is pleased with us changing our natural image. We were created in God's image, so when we mark up our bodies, we are altering that. I am just giving my opinion. I would never consider getting a tattoo.

    No I did not read your posts on this Forum. Quoting the Levitical laws is smoke and are societal regulations for Israel and not the Church. We are not Israel.The mark of Rev 13 is mixed in with worshipping an image and taking a name/number. Nothing to do with voluntary tattoos. Try again.

    My opinion is that God is not so much concerned with what we hang on the outside of this tent as He is the inside. To each man's conscience on this one.

    2 Corinthians 5:1 (NASB) For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
