Has anyone else noticed this similarity and wondered about it?
I noticed a similarity between (Deuteronomy 6:8 NASB) “You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead.” and 1 (Revelation 13:16 NASB) “And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead,” Has anyone else noticed this similarity and wondered about it?
I know that satan seems to be mocking God in His triune nature with the 2 unholy trinity of the false prophet, satan, and the anti-christ.
I know that satan is a created being and so are the members of the unholy trinity, as such they are subject to God. They can only go as far as He allows.
The similarity between the two verses seems it could be another instance of defamation against God. God gave the law to Moses and Israel for their good. It was later used by them as a means to an end. It became a works righteousness system. They thought by obeying in their deeds they would please God. There is a religion today that is a works righteousness faith and a totalitarian replacement government all rolled up into one, and their eschatology interestingly resembles ours. Except their Christ figure is our anti-christ.
If you guessed islam, you are correct. That is the faith I am talking about. If you are not muslim and you live in a muslim land you already have trouble doing business and buying food. I wonder what a future islam would look like if it were world wide and influenced by the cultures it conquered?
A world system and a religion combined, in complete tyrannical control. They already kill Christians and Jews for their god. What would a secularized and modernized islam look like? Just random thoughts from Bob.
