In Philippians 2:5, the Bible tells us, "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus." How do we have the mind of Christ Jesus? Learning to have the mind of Christ will help you avoid the end-time deception of the mark of the beast. Many people will take the mark of the beast because they haven’t learned in daily experience to trust in the Lord with all their hearts. They will lean upon their own understanding and deceive themselves into going along with Satan’s plan, even believing that their disobedience to God is righteousness. How could they be so deceived? Could it happen to us? Many of us have entered into careers, marriages, lifestyles based on lies we’ve fashioned for ourselves through leaning on our own understanding. It is possible for us to so deceive ourselves that we may even look in the Bible for verses that validate our sinful course. In the end, we deceive not only ourselves, but others also. Christopher Hudson examines principles that will help us to trust God with all our hearts and avoid the traps of Satan.
