So far in the series we have looked at the biblical links to the number of the Beast, 666. As we have learned, there are some very interesting correlations between the number and it meaning. Lets look at another aspect of this number.

When John wrote the verse he intended that we would use wisdom and examine the biblical text for clues that reveal the meaning behind the number. In this way we will be able to count the number of the Beast, and discover what John meant when he said “its the number of a man.”

Revelation 13:18:  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

In earlier parts of this series we learned that one of the men John wanted us to examine was king Solomon and his link to the number 666, as well as the evil apostasy he led the nation of Israel into near the end of his rule. Solomon abandoned the God of Heaven for the occult gnosis or hidden knowledge of the god of this world, Lucifer, the Light-Bearer. The Apostle Paul warned us about the abilities of Lucifer/Satan to alter his appearance so that his doctrines look very appealing to humanity.

2 Corinthians 11:14:  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Lucifer before the Lord, by Mihály Zichy, 1902

As most of you know, Lucifer and his fallen ones still come to humans as an angel of light, bearing gnosis or knowledge that appeals to “the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life” (1 John 2:16).  He still wants us to pluck fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, but in the end the fruit he offers is actually bitter poison. It destroys our relationship with God, with other people, and can lead to a very bitter end for many, not just in this world, but in eternity as well.

Before the ancient Israelites entered the Promised Land Moses sent 12 spies to examine the land and its inhabitants. God had promised a land flowing with milk and honey, which is a way of saying that the land would be a land of blessing, bounty, and plenty. All of their needs would be met once they entered the land, conquered its inhabitants, and began a new life under the authority of God.

After the 12 spies returned from their exploration, 10 of the men brought an evil report which discouraged the majority of the children of Israel from entering the land. They said they saw the Nephilim giants and refused to believe that God would help them conquer the giants and take the land.

As many of you know, because of this heart of unbelief God banished the unbelieving generation to the wilderness for a period of 40 years, or,  until they were all dead. In the end their children entered the land and conquered the Nephilim giants under the leadership of Joshua.

One of the 12 spies was a man by the name of Sethur, and his father’s name was Michael. It is here in the book of Numbers that we see another clue revealing 666, the number of the Beast. And remember, it is the number of a man, so here is another man with a connection to the number.

Numbers 13:13: Of the tribe of Asher, Sethur the son of Michael.

According to Dr. Adam Clark the Hebrew name Sethur equals 666:

              ס 60 + ת 400 + ו 6 + ר 200 = 666

This is the one place in the Bible where it seems the gematria works out to 666. As strange as it seems, once we examine the meaning of the names it will become abundantly clear why the Holy Spirit placed this signpost in the ancient book of Numbers.

The following is adapted from my book, Alien Antichrist, The Terrifying Truth about UFOs and Aliens, Antichrist, and the End of Days, and as such this research is copyright 2014, Jeffrey A. Wingo.

The Hebrew name Cĕthuwr Sethur means “hidden, to hide, conceal, mysterious.” The name also means, “destroying.”  {1} The father of Sethur is a man named Michael, which means, “who (is) like God.” {2}

Taking all of this into consideration, and placing the clues side by side, the name Sethur and his father Michael mean: “the hidden one, the destroyer, who is like God.” {3}

Apollyon/Abaddon, the Beast from the abyss also means Destroyer. He is the hidden one, because he is currently in the prison of Tartarus, deep in the Earth. His name means Destroyer, and he desires to be like God. {4}

Another clue is found at Ezra 2:13: “The children of Adonikam, six hundred sixty and six.”

This verse is from a listing of families who are returning to Jerusalem from Babylon after the 70 year captivity. It seems so strange to have information about the number 666 at this point in Scripture, but there is a very good reason it is placed here.

The first clue is the city of captivity, Babylon. And Babylon the Great will be the city of captivity during the Great Tribulation (see Revelation chapter 18). Also, a rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem will one day be the focal point of the entire world when the Antichrist Beast enters the sacred precincts of the Temple, proclaims that he is God, and demands that the Jewish nation of Israel and the world worship him as such.

The name Adonikam means “a lord rising up,” or a lord risen. {5}  According to Dr. John Gill, “the number of Adonikam’s posterity is 666, Ezr. 2:13; whose name signifies “a lord rising up”, or “risen”; and suits very well with antichrist, who is risen up, and assumes a lordly domination over the kings of the earth.” {6}

When put all the clues together we find they point directly at Apollyon/Abaddon, the Beast from the abyss.

A Babylonian Lord Rising up, the Hidden One, the Destroyer, Who is like (or desires to be like) God.

“It is very clear that all of this points to Apollyon the Beast from the abyss! At present he is hidden away in Tartarus. His name means destroyer, and he desires to be like God. In his former days he was the king of Babylon, and when he is released from the abyss he will once again assume that title and position as the king of an Empire called Babylon the Great.” From Alien Antichrist by Jeffrey A. Wingo, pgs. 240-241.

This is what John meant when he said to count the number of the Beast. These clues, hidden deep in the pages of the Bible, your Bible, reveal the meaning behind the number 666 and point to the identity of the Antichrist Beast. This is what John meant when he said:

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

 

It should be abundantly clear that all of the information in this series of articles reveals the identity of the Antichrist as the Beast from the abyss. I realize this may not satisfy every person out there, but the information I have given you is BIBLICAL, that is the main thing. There is too much information out there based on speculation and opinion, but my point is that we need to get back to the Word of God, the Bible.

Also please note that my information comes from the authorized King James Bible, so if you are using a modern translation you may find that some of this information will not be revealed by a few of the more  modern translations, especially paraphrased creations like one as loose as the Message Bible. I am not King James Only, and I am certainly not legalistic about Bible versions, but if you do some checking you may find that the old venerable King James Bible was put together by godly, scholarly, men who translated the Bible using very strict protocols, and they didn’t play linguistic gymnastics like some of the other versions seem to do at times–just my opinion, yours may differ on this subject!

    I agree 100% with your conclusion. I’ve been looking at this a lot lately and realized that the whole gematria method wasn’t working. Then an incredible thought hit me (minor sarcasm)…..”what EXACTLY does the Bible say on the subject?”. It never said “use gematria to calculate the number”. Not to mention a case could be made that gematria was primarily practiced in the occult so why would God instruct us to use that! So, the answer must lie somewhere in the Bible and, well it does.

    I think the bottom line here is when the Beast takes power, the Church will know who that person is who is taken over. He might even be here working right this very minute. 😉

    • Thanks for your comment Jason. You are exactly right, Gematria wasn’t working and it really never will to solve the enigma. The Apostle John intended that we would search the Bible for the answer, and when you look at it from that perspective an answer does emerge! Yes we look at history, and yes we need to consider our present circumstances, but ultimately the answers are found in the Bible; we just need to take the time, pray, and search diligently.
      Again, thanks for your comment, and your interest!
