Beware the conditioning to accept a mark. When the Mark of the Beast is finally here, and one day it will be, the world will take it like they take a vaccine- with hardly a whisper...or perhaps with great anticipation of the wonderful benefits it will promise- and only half deliver.
God has declared that whoever takes this long prophesied "mark" cannot ever, that is NEVER find peace with God, but only the wrath of God:

"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus." (Rev 14:9-12)
One of the most frightening passages in all of scripture is found in Revelation 20 and it describes the Great White Throne Judgment.  You do not want to be at this Judgment:

"And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
Notice that those who face this Judgement are judged by their works.  If you think your works are going to be seen as "okay" or "better than other people I know", you may want to rethink that one for a minute.  God will not judge you on a curve like your sixth grade teacher did.  He cannot or He would be an unjust God.  God is just and if you are a human being you have broken God's laws- we all have and multiple times, so lets be real about this shall we?   We have stolen, we have lied, we have used God's name in vain, we have committed adultery (even if only by lusting in our hearts which Christ, who looks examines the heart says it is as the sin of adultery)...we have done terrible things, and repetitiously to boot.  We are not holy as He is holy. God's word declares:

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God." (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)

As you see, we have a dilemma.  So, in my estimation, when you die, don't start telling God about how you helped little old ladies cross the street, did your best and loved your family. He knows all of your sins.  Even your secret sins that maybe no one else knows. 

Today's believer will face not the Great White Throne at our death, but rather the Judgement Seat of Christ, Hallelujah!
This Judgement, that occurs after the rapture is not a Judgement for salvation, that having already been accomplished and settled at the cross where Christ took the penalty for our sins, (1 John 2:2) leaving us with only having to accept (John 1:12) God's free gift of redemption while we had the chance on earth. 
This judgment rather is for rewards, or for a loss of rewards, based on our obedience in this life.

"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad." (2 Corinthians 5:10 

The Greek word translated as "bad" in this phrase, is based upon the Greek word Phaulos. According to Strong's dictionary (#5337), the primary definition of Phaulos is "easy, slight, ordinary, mean, worthless, of no account."  

Those things that I have done that are "bad" will at His Righteous Judgment, not last, but will burn: 

"Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. I Corinthians 3:12-15.

I find it deliciously ironic that as I confessed (in a quiet moment of self reflection, took the responsibility of my actions before God Almighty) my own utter humiliation and shame for things that I had done that I found my salvation in the Person and work of Jesus Christ. 
I could never have earned it. No one can.  But Jesus took all of the junk, all of my shame, that three letter word we don't hear much of today by our very soul knows it is true, SIN, and literally purchased my pardon by the shedding of His blood. 

I love this verse, "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." (2 Corinthians 5:21)

Let me recap: 
Don't be deceived into taking the Mark of the Beast.  
Don't attend the Great White Throne Judgment.
But rather...
Make reservations now for the Judgment Seat of Christ. 

How do we make sure we NEVER, EVER stand at the Great White Throne?
Glad you asked.  With a sincere and contrite heart, confess to Almighty God...
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."  (Romans 10:9)
Rest in assurance that believing in Christ, you are saved:

"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)
