THE MARK OF THE BEAST

by

SIDNEY WATSON

Author of "In the Twinkling of An Eye"; "Scarlet and Purple"

New York Fleming H. Revell Company London and Edinburgh Copyright, 1918, by Bible Institute of Los Angeles Copyright, 1933, by Fleming H. Revell Company

PUBLISHER'S NOTE.

After the Lord's Second Coming, what will happen to those left behind? What will the Tribulation period be like? What will happen during the reign of the Antichrist? What is meant by "The Mark of the Beast"? What will be the fate of those who refuse to bear this mark?

All of these questions and many others connected with the mark of the beast, are answered in this realistic, startling, awe inspiring story.

Although entirely fictional, the author has based his narrative on just what the Bible teaches concerning the Great Tribulation that awful period of distress and woe that is coming upon this earth during the time when the Anti christ will rule with unhindered sway. It is a story you will never forget a story that has been used of God in the salvation of souls, and in awakening careless Christians to the need of a closer walk with Jesus in their daily lives. This volume deserves a wide reading. It should be in every Sunday School Library and in every home.

PREFACE.

The great acceptance with which the Author's previous volume "In the Twinkling of an Eye" was received, when published in Oct. 1910, together with the many records of blessing resulting from the perusal, leads him to hope that the present volume may prove equally useful.

The subjects treated in this volume are possibly less known, (even among some who hold the truth of the Lord's Near Return in joyful Hope) than the subjects handled "In the Twinkling of an Eye," but they certainly should have as much interest as the earlier truths, and should lead (those hitherto unacquainted with them) to a careful, prayerful searching of "The Word."

The Author would here mark his indebtedness to Dr. Joseph A. Seiss, and Dr. Campbell Morgan, for the inceptive thoughts re Judas Iscariot, and The Antichrist. Dr. Campbell Morgan's very remarkable sermon on "Christ and Judas" under date December 18, 1908 while being profoundly interesting and illuminating, it has proved to the Author to be the only sound theory of explanation of that perplexing personality Judas Iscariot he has ever met.

While cleaving close to Scripture, at the same time it has settled the life long perplexity of the writer of this book, as to the difficulties surrounding "The Traitor."

The fictional form has again been adopted in this volume, for the same reasons that obtained in the writing of "In the Twinkling of an Eye." The use of the fictional style for the presentment of sacred subjects is ever a moot point with some people. Yet, every parable, allegory, etc., (not excepting Bunyan's Master piece) is fictional form. So that the moot point really becomes one of degree and not of principle if Bunyan, Milton, and Dante, be allowed to be right. Certain it is that many thousands have read, and have been awakened, quickened, even converted, by reading "In the Twinkling of an Eye," "Long Odds," "He's coming To morrow," (Mrs...
