The Call of Christ

Posted: March 28, 2014 in Reflections

The ministry of the man Christ Jesus was the single most important ministry ever fulfilled. The earthly ministry of Jesus was highlighted by miraculous instances of supernatural healing and deliverance, in addition to all of the events that led to His atoning death. These events were extremely important. However, one of the most critical aspects of Jesus’ ministry was calling and investing in average men, twelve common men who would later be used to ensure the propagation of the Gospel.

I certainly understand why the number 666 may be bothering you. Your concern is even more understandable given the fact that so many people have tried to create connections between the mark of the beast and the social security system in the United States.
