666: CALCULATING THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST, PART THREE by Jeff Wingo

 

In my previous two posts, 666: Calculating the Number of the Beast Part 1 and Part 2, we learned the correct way to calculate the number of the Beast. We also learned that king Solomon is a biblical type of the Antichrist. Continuing with Solomon, we see that at the beginning of his reign God blessed him with supernatural wisdom. However, later in his life Solomon turned from the Lord God and began to serve the god of this world.

“For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father. For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father. Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon. And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods” (1 Kings 11:4-8).

I should add at this point that these were not imaginary gods. The people may have set up a stone or bronze image of a god or a goddess, but the ancient gods of Babylon and Canaan were empowered by the Fallen Ones.

What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils (1 Corinthians 10:19-21.

Yea, they (backslidden Israel) sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood (Psalm 106:37-38).

There is a real spiritual power behind these entities, possibly accompanied by a visible, tangible, manifestation before the people and the temple priests (the same type of visual manifestation found in many modern alien and UFO accounts). It was a reality so intoxicating that it caused the kings of Israel and the people of the nation to surrender their will (individually and collectively), as well as their little children, to the image of the beast. Why else would Solomon, the wisest man on Earth at that time abandon the God of heaven and surrender the future of Israel and the children of his nation to the power of the priests and idols like those that he did?

All of the gods listed at 1 Kings 11:4-8 are essentially the same being: Milcom, Molech, Chemosh, Molech, Baal-hamon, were also known in North Africa and Greece as the sun-god Kronos/Cronus. The Romans also associated Molech or Moloch with the god Saturn, an ancient cosmic deity worshipped by the Israelites during the 40 years spent in the wilderness with Moses. Later, Solomon, Manasseh, and many of the other kings of Israel worshiped the god Saturn in the Temple proper as well.

Amos 5:25-26: Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel? But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.

Acts 7:43: Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.

The ancient worshippers of Saturn knew him as a bloody god, one who, according to the myths, devoured his own children; and so in like manner, the worshippers of Saturn offered their own children to the image of the god, truly an image of the Beast. We see this symbolically in the Bible, as Satan the Great Red Dragon is also a devourer of children. In Revelation 12:1-5, the Dragon waits for the birth of Jesus so that he may devour him as soon as he is born.

And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

To be clear, the Romans considered that Saturn was the same god as the Greek Cronus. Historically, the Greek chronicler Diodorus Siculus provided this description of Cronus, the Carthaginian fire god:

“There was in their city a bronze image of Cronus extending its hands, palms up and sloping toward the ground, so that each of the children when placed thereon rolled down and fell into a sort of gaping pit filled with fire.”

I find it incredible that human beings could be so deceived (and depraved) that they would offer their own children to a burning idol in this manner. We tend to think of ourselves as more sophisticated than ancient people; but today our culture (and those around the world) also continue this very same practice as they freely offer up little children to the image of the beast.

The ritual act of abortion is a continuation of the bloody sacrifice to the god of self and pleasure. The Elites of our world have created a convenient altar for their bloody sacrifices to continue, sacrifices to the ancient sun-god, Saturn/Satan. It is true that Satan transforms himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14), an ancient image of the sun—Saturn/ Cronus or Helios Apollo, or, as the book of Revelation reveals, Apollyon, the king of the infernal Abyss (Revelation 9:11).

The Symbol of Gold: Immortality, Power, and Idolatry

Gold is a symbol of wealth, power, and status. It is also not a bad thing in the Bible: Abraham was rich in gold and silver (Genesis 13:2), the Mercy Seat on the Ark of the Covenant was made of pure gold (Exodus 25:17; 37:6), and the Wise Men brought the Christ child gold (Matthew 2:11).

Yet, gold is also a symbol of idolatry, for instance the golden calf worshipped at the foot of Sinai (Exodus 32:1-6). Historically, gold is likewise a symbol for immortality; in keeping with many of the ancient mystery religions, the Alchemists of old vainly tried to turn base metals like lead into gold.

The alchemical goal is actually an attempt through occult ritual to turn humanity into the gold of the gods; it is an upward reach for the stars, to achieve an apotheosis without the need of the God of heaven. Many of the ancient Mystery religions (and today secret societies) promised transformation or godhood to the highest adepts through the application of occult gnosis, or the hidden knowledge of the gods.

Solomon is an example in the Bible of a man who forsakes the God of heaven, for the secret gnosis of the Fallen Ones. In all reality, for humanity, like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, reaching to be “like” the gods is a vain attempt, indeed, a lie. Solomon realized this too late; later, filled with regret he cried out, “Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity” (Ecclesiastes 1:2).

Solomon sacrificed his relationship with the God of heaven, and the future of Israel, for sensual pleasures and the occult gnosis of Satan, the god of this age (2 Corinthians 4:4). Ultimately, that is what Satan promises—the gnosis of the gods, and personal transformation, to be as gods, “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil (Genesis 3:5). Over the untold centuries, many people have found out, just as Solomon did, that Satan’s promises come at a great cost, and finally, are empty lies.

In Part Four of 666: CALCULATING THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST, we will continue to explore the links to Solomon and the future Antichrist Beast of the book of Revelation.

666, CALCULATING THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST PART 2 by Jeff Wingo

The Visit of the Queen of Sheba to King Solomon; Edward Poynter, 1890

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 part one, 666: CALCULATING THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST, we stepped back from all the hype and speculation concerning the number of the Beast. The heart of the issue for us today, in the 21st century, is how do we figure out the true meaning of the number 666? How should we “count” the number as the apostle John instructed us, so that we can fully understand the implications of the number and the identity of the Beast?

I believe when the apostle John wrote the book of Revelation his desire was to impart wisdom and understanding to the Church, not cause us to engage in useless speculation regarding an unsolvable mystery. After all, the last verse of chapter 13 begins with these words—“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast…” From all of this, it is obvious that the “wisdom” to which John was referring is biblical wisdom. Let us be like the prophet Daniel who sought the Lord for wisdom and understanding.

Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days (Daniel 10:14).

Seeking the Wisdom of the Lord

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding (Proverbs 4:7).

In this study, it is my hope (with the leading of the Holy Spirit), to come to a biblical understanding regarding this issue so that we can correctly “count” the number. There are probably other ways to go about this, so, what I present here is just a small piece of the puzzle. I do not pretend to have all the answers nobody has all the answers. Like you, I “see through a glass darkly” (1 Corinth. 13:12). Nevertheless, it is my belief that the Bible has all the answers we need for this or any other issue in life. As we move forward, God will lead us to a greater understanding as we study and pray. In addition, I am fully convinced that when the Antichrist Beast does appear he will not catch us off guard—the Lord will provide discernment and wisdom to every member of His true Church.

What we discovered in part 1 is that the Greek word psēphizō (Strong’s G5585), translated in our English Bible as “count,” means much more than just counting or calculating the sum total of a group of numbers. We cannot just arbitrarily pick the name of a famous personality and see if their name adds up to 666 using Hebrew or Greek gematria. That is the problem; we have to go one more step. Going on, we see that the word psēphizō also means to give one’s vote by casting a pebble into an urn; to decide by voting.

Now, as I explained, the Greek word psēphizō originates from a root word, psēphos, (Strong’s G5586), which refers to “a small worn smooth stone, a pebble” used to cast a vote in a court of law. For instance, the members of the jury used the stones to cast a vote to decide whether a defendant was guilty or innocent; “in the ancient courts of justice the accused were condemned by black pebbles and acquitted by white.”

However, in order to come to a proper understanding regarding the legal case before them the members of a jury must listen to all of the facts. Only in this way, can one come to a logical conclusion and properly vote to acquit or condemn the defendant. Applying this to 666, the number of the Beast, means that before we calculate the number of a name, and vote on a candidate for the Antichrist, we must consider all the facts in the case. Once we consider all of the facts (as found in many biblical examples), then we can vote, and apply the number 666 to the correct person, who is the Antichrist, the Beast of the book of Revelation.

Therefore, our task is to search the Bible and study the facts it provides regarding the Antichrist. The clues are there; God did not present us with an unsolvable mystery and then cast us adrift on the waves of subjective speculation. To be honest, everything we need to know about the Antichrist Beast and the infamous 666 is in the Bible. Our task is to take the time, search the Scriptures, and discover the facts. Only by searching out the matter will we have the correct information to solve the enigma of the number of the Beast, 666.

KING SOLOMON: A TYPE OF THE ANTICHRIST BEAST

Without doubt, Solomon is one of the most enigmatic figures in the Bible. He began his reign with the blessings of God, and it seems as if God showered Solomon with an overabundance of wealth and wisdom. Yet Solomon gradually drifted away from the wisdom and blessing of the God of heaven. In turn, he sought out the forbidden gnosis or occult knowledge of the god of this world. Tragically, Solomon descended into blatant idolatry and evil, that is the biblical record.

“For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father. For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father. Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon. And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods” (1 Kings 11:4-8).

Let us take note that every one of the demon gods named in 1 Kings 11:4-8 required human sacrifice. Ashtoreth was a cultic fertility goddess, whose religious ceremonies corrupted every culture that it touched. Ashtoreth (same as the Babylonian Ishtar), was an ancient Canaanite fertility (and war) goddess, androgynous in nature, who was worshipped through sacred prostitution. This caused considerable harm to the people God as they descended into an abyss of wickedness and moral debauchery through male and female temple prostitution. The worship of Ashtoreth literally destroyed the foundations of the family and the nation because of two things, namely, appalling immorality and child sacrifice.

This should all sound very familiar to you in 21st century America because we have the same wicked behavior going on, and all of it has the “sacred” sanction of the United States government and the Supreme Court.

To be continued in part 3….


As we progress through this study you will see parallels to todays culture and society. It is true that, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” (George Santayana).  This is especially true in American politics, as we see daily on the national news.

Political correctness is a destructive force, and our nation is under a satanic delusion right now. I am afraid that many people in the United States have succumbed to a strong delusion. Or, it is more than likely at this point that God has handed millions of Americans over to the power of their chosen sin. Paul warned about the terror of the Lord, and three times in Romans chapter 1 (verses, 24, 26, 28), Paul states that God hands people over, He gives them up to their sin by withdrawing His restraint of grace and mercy. You may read Romans 1 here. 

Keep praying and keep reading the Bible.
