The people who do not have the mark of the Beast will suffer temporarily, but the people who get the mark of the Beast will also suffer – suffer eternally in the lake of fire (Revelation 13:15-17; 14:9-11). The number of the Beast is 666. The only sure way of escape is to be genuinely saved and live for Christ and endure till the end.
God is a good God. We hear so much about Him being a good God, and I believe He is a good God. That’s right. He is a good God. But if He’s a good God, He’s got to be a just God. He can’t give us a commandment to do something another, and we disobey it and expect to escape the Judgment. He’s also a God of wrath, a God of judgment. That’s what makes Him a good God, because He keeps His Word. He watches over It.
In any trial, in any bitter situation, you are not alone, you are not helpless, you are not a victim. You have a tree, a cross, shown to you by the Sovereign God of Calvary. Whatever the trial or temptation, it is not more than you can bear. It is bearable. It can be handled. You can know as Joseph knew, "You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive" (Genesis 50:20).
