As we noted yesterday, while the world worships the beast, the followers of Jesus Christ do not, and the Lord blesses them for their refusal, but those who worship the beast shall suffer horribly for it,
“Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, ‘If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name’” (Revelation 14:9–11).
The ultimate punishment awaits those who worship anything other than the Lord God.
