I remember times when my mother would only have cow’s milk and cornbread for her meals. She claimed she liked it. I guess she did, but I wonder if she did it to leave the more flavorful foods to the rest of the family.

I wonder how far a parent would go to provide food for his/her child. Would he/she take the mark in order to buy and sell?

I wonder how parents will handle providing food for their children if they neglect making timely decisions regarding salvation for their families before the arrival of the anti-christ with his orders that no one can buy or sell without taking his mark.

I wonder how many think it is not important to be concerned about it because they believe the children will no longer be around. They believe as adults they can fend for themselves by running to the hills.

I wonder whether children also have to take the mark if they are on earth during the tribulation. If so at what age?

I wonder if we are all in denial of how excruciating the tribulation will be. Then, lo and behold, the tribulation is here, the anti-christ is ruling and the kids are still around!

In the past persecution of Christians, the children had to suffer. Why do we think it will be different in the future?

And beyond the tribulation, there is hell for those who do accept Jesus as Lord.

What is hell? I’m only sure it is represented at least by the worst imaginable suffering because Jesus described it as ever lasting fire. Luke 16:19-31 plus other scriptures.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    I used to think hell was the absence of God’s presence; outer darkness, weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth, etc.. But recently an article in either CT or Lifeway suggested it would be the PRESENCE of God that would make hell so miserable for those who refuse to believe in Him.
    In any case, I do not plan to find out experientially, and pray for all those Father puts in my path, including fellow-bloggers, that they will not have to either.
    ❤️&🙏, c.a.

      In the parable Jesus gives of the Rich Man and Lazarus, the rich man in hell talks to Abraham.

        Actually, he may not be in hell yet, just as Lazarus may not be in Heaven yet, but rather both are in divisions of Sheol, the place of the dead awaiting a resurrection, one to Life Eternal, the other to hell.
        We’ll probably not get all the answers here, but “We’ll Understand It Better By and By.” 😉

    Well, the bible says mens hearts will fail them during the tribulation period, I believe that to be true. I also believe it will be horrendous and unfortunately I ache for all.
