Let us be reminded daily of these words spoken by our Lord, Savior and King Jesus Christ saying: “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon” (Luke 16:13).
When the day comes, and it is soon coming, we must remember these words, should we be alive, when we are asked to take the “..mark of the beast..” (Revelation 13:1-18). Let us recall when the devil tried to offer the kingdoms of this world to Jesus, and he rebuked him, as it is written:
“Then saith Jesus unto him, ‘Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.’” (Matthew 4:10).
