The Vision of John on Patmos by Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld 1860.

So far, in this series we have looked at the various biblical links to the number of the Beast, 666, and in doing so we have discovered along the way that the Bible alone holds the key to the hidden meaning behind the number of the Beast. Thus, as we have discovered, biblical revelation sets us free from the useless speculation surrounding the number of the Beast; the Lord has not given us vital information that we need for the last days and then left us to the mercy of the tide!

Thankfully, in the last days before His return, the Lord Jesus is revealing the biblical meaning of this mystery to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church (Mark 4:9, 23; 7:16; Revelation 2:7, 11, 17; 2:29; 3:13,22; 13:9).

As we have learned, there are some very interesting correlations between the number 666 and its meaning. When John wrote the verse, he intended that we would use wisdom as we examine the biblical text for clues that reveal the meaning behind the infamous number. In this way, we will count (biblically) the number of the Beast to discover what John meant when he said the number of the Beast is, “the number of a man.”

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 (Revelation 13:18). 

In earlier segments of this series (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5), we discovered the biblical link to King Solomon and the number of the Beast, as well as the link between 666 and the evil apostasy Solomon brought upon the nation of Israel near the end of his rule.

The Bible clearly testifies that 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 appear to be biblical doctrine.

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

As most of you know, Lucifer and his fallen angels still come to humans as angels of light. They hide evil behind “the light” and bring secret gnosis or forbidden knowledge that appeals to “the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life” (1 John 2:16).

The Serpent and his servants entice humans to pluck the fruit of Antichrist from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. In the end, the fruit he offers is actually bitter poison. It destroys our relationship with God, with other people, and always leads 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 twelve spies to examine the land and its inhabitants (Numbers chap.13, 14). God promised Israel a land flowing with milk and honey, which is a way of saying that the land is overflowing with blessing, bounty, and plenty. As discovered by the twelve spies however, thousands of giants occupied the land; the remnants of post-flood (second) incursion of the wicked offspring of the fallen Sons of God and the daughters of men (Genesis 6: 1-4).

After the twelve spies returned from exploring the land, ten of the men brought an evil report that discouraged the majority of the children of Israel from entering the land. The ten unbelieving spies refused to believe that God would help them conquer the giants and take the land.

As many of you know, because of unbelief God banished this faithless generation to wander in the wilderness for forty years, until every faithless Israelite died. What a tragic judgment, a testimony we should heed lest we fail the grace of God and end up faithless (1 Corinthians 10:5; Hebrews 3: 8-12). In the end, their children entered the land and conquered the Nephilim giants under the leadership of Joshua.

One of the twelve 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. Remember, it is the number of a man, so here is another man with a connection to the number 666.

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

According to Dr. Adam Clark, the Hebrew name Sethur equals 666: This is the one place in the Bible, where the gematria works out to number. As strange as it seems, once we examine the meaning of the name, it will become abundantly clear why the Holy Spirit placed this signpost in the ancient book of Numbers.

Please Note: The following is adapted from my book, Alien Antichrist, The Terrifying Truth about UFOs and Aliens, Antichrist, and the End of Days, so 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} Furthermore, 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 suggest “the hidden one, the destroyer, who is like God.” {3}

Apollyon/Abaddon, the Beast from the abyss also means Destroyer (Rev. 9:11). He is the hidden one, because he is currently in the prison of Tartarus, deep in the Earth (Revelation 11:7; 17:8; 2 Peter 2:4; Jude 1:6—pgs. 129-132, Alien Antichrist). 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 (about another man) 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 here.

The first clue is the city of captivity, Babylon. According to the Bible, Babylon the Great is the city of captivity during the Great Tribulation (see Revelation chapter 18). In addition, 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 worship from the people of Israel and the entire world.

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 we place all the clues side by side, 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.

I believe this is what John meant when he said to count the number of the Beast. All of these clues, hidden deep in the pages of the Bible, your Bible, reveal the meaning behind the number 666 and point directly 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 (Revelation 13:18).

By now, 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 (Revelation 9:11). I realize this may not satisfy every person out there, but the information I have given you is BIBLICAL, that is what is most important. There is too much information out there based on speculation and opinion, therefore, my point is that we need to get back to the Word of God, the Bible.

Also, please note that all of my information comes from the authorized King James Bible, so if you are using a modern translation you may discover that some of this information you will not find in some new translations. 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. They did not play linguistic gymnastics as some scholars have done with most of the modern versions–just my opinion, yours may differ on this subject!
