666: CALCULATING THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST PART 5 by Jeff Wingo

In my previous four posts, 666: Calculating the Number of the Beast Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4, we learned that when king Solomon abandoned God he became a biblical type of the Antichrist. Continuing with the story of Solomon, in Part 5 we see the symbolism of the number 666 and the link to his Throne, and the Throne of the Antichrist Beast.

At the beginning of his reign, God blessed Solomon with supernatural wisdom and everything he would need to rule Israel. However, later in his life Solomon turned from the Lord God and began to serve the god of this world. Through Solomon the backslidden king of Israel, the Bible unfolds the mystery of the enigmatic symbolism of 666, the number of the Beast.


The Symbolism of 666 and the Golden Throne of Solomon

“Moreover the king made a great throne of ivory, and overlaid it with pure gold. And there were six steps to the throne, with a footstool of gold, which were fastened to the throne, and stays on each side of the sitting place, and two lions standing by the stays: And twelve lions stood there on the one side and on the other upon the six steps. There was not the like made in any kingdom” (2 Chronicles 9: 17-19).

Here we see Solomon’s royal throne full of symbology directly related to the number of the Beast, 666. Of course, we see items of wealth such as ivory, and gold, used to construct the throne. Those things are rich with symbolism as well, but at this time, I would like to focus on the six steps, and the twelve lions on each step mounted on both sides of the throne. For it is here that we find the symbolism directly related to the Antichrist Beast. Six steps to ascend the throne, and each step is flanked on either end with the statue of a lion, twelve lions in all—6 steps, and 6 lions on the right side and 6 on the left side for a total of twelve lions. The numbers are clear that 666 relates to the throne of a king who abandoned the God of heaven for the god of this world.

The steps ascending the throne are symbolic of the climb of man as he ascends the golden steps to the heights (or heavens) to obtain godhood. That was the goal of the builders of the Tower of Babel, to reach the heights, the heavens, which is the dwelling place of the “gods.” Every secret society on Earth teaches this doctrine in one way or another. It is the doctrine of Transformation, i.e., apotheosis, the secret gnosis or knowledge of transformation to become like God (spiritual alchemy –turning the base metal of man into a god).

The Serpent, Lucifer, the Bringer of Light, brought that very same doctrine to Adam and Eve (Genesis 3), and since that time to the present, men and women have tried to grasp for the forbidden fruit of godhood through the occult arts, meditation, secret societies, alchemy, and contemporary incarnations of ancient occult associations as found in the New Age Movement. The fallen Cherub, Lucifer tried the same thing—he wanted to be “like God,” but instead, in the process of self-deception he fell from the heights of heaven to the depths Hell.

“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High” (Isaiah 14:12-14).

Likewise, the Antichrist, the Beast from the Abyss, also seeks to raise himself upward to the heights of heaven and become like God:

2 Thessalonians 2: 3b-4: …and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

As we saw earlier, contained in the description of the throne of Solomon is the triple 6 of Antichrist, and the number 666 points directly to the future Third Temple in Jerusalem. Furthermore, the Throne Symbolism of Solomon and the number 666 also points to the human heart, for in the New Testament the temple of God is the human body.

 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? (1 Cor. 3: 16). 

I have often wondered if the apostle Paul had the Throne Symbolism of Solomon in mind when he penned 2nd Thessalonians 2:4. For there we find that Paul prophesied of a future time when the Man of Sin (the Antichrist) will usurp the place of God, as he (like Solomon) ascends the golden steps upward into a rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem.

No more blasphemy can someone make than to claim the place of Almighty God (think of the pope of Roman Catholicism). Both Jesus and Daniel prophesied that an Abomination of Desolation would occur in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount (Matt.24:15; Daniel 9:27; 12:11). This happens as the Man of Sin enters the Most Holy Place and sets himself up as God of the Earth—“…so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” (2 Thess. 2:4).

Once the Antichrist Beast sets himself up as God, he institutes the Image and Mark of the Beast. This is dangerous territory. Because, if a person accepts the Image and Mark of the Beast that person also commits the ultimate blasphemy by defiling the human body, which is also described biblically as the Temple of God: “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you” (1 Corinthians 3:16)?”

The warning is dreadful because the Image and Mark of the Beast defiles the spirit, soul, and body, of the one who accepts it: “If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are” (1 Cor.3:17). The consequences of participating in the deep idolatry of Beast worship are final, and eternal:

“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” (Revelation 14:9-11).

The Bible reveals that one day a new Solomon will arise, take his seat on the Throne of God, and rule the world through a global empire called Babylon the Great. As we have seen, the Throne Symbolism of King Solomon is a prophecy of a future king who will turn his back on God (like Solomon), and take his seat in the Most Holy Place in a Temple in Jerusalem. In addition, the Antichrist Beast will also take his seat in the human body through the Image and Mark of the Beast.

I have one more post in this series. Until then, thanks for visiting.

If you would like to learn more about 666, the number of the Beast, and UFOs and aliens, and how all of this will lead to a great delusion of the last days during the coming Tribulation, then I recommend to you my book, Alien Antichrist, The Terrifying Truth about UFOs and Aliens, Antichrist, and the End of Days.
The Antichrist Beast, and the Beast system of Babylon the Great will use UFOs and aliens to deceive the world. Daniel foretold the coming of an alien god in the last days. Get the book, increase your knowledge of Bible prophecy, and learn about the coming deception.

You may get the book at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and at other fine bookstores as a print on demand title. The Kindle version of Alien Antichrist is available through Amazon.
