Revelation 13:16-17 CSB
And it makes everyone-small and great, rich and poor, free and slave-to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead,  so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark: the beast’s name or the number of its name.
The second beast (Spiritual and called the False Prophet) forces all people no matter standing, to choose either to resist or worship the first beast (political) and show the Mark as proof, thus being able to live within the secular world (all that do not will live as outcast of the secular).
The revelations here are scarily similar to present day actions, for example how satan uses the new ‘social media justice’ to attack Christian’s (especially those once praised by the left and now standing for Christ).
Dear Heavenly Father, Creator of all time and things, we see your revelations coming true at an accelerated rate so please help us to stand strong for You while temporily here on earth.
