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.

666, CALCULATING THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST PART 1 by Jeff Wingo

Hello, Everyone! I am back after a brief break from writing on the blog. I decided to rewrite some of my older articles, because we have new visitors to the site, and they are looking for Bible teaching about the Antichrist, the Beast, the number 666, and the Image and Mark of the Beast. Here is a reworking of an article from 2015. I have updated the writing, and clarified several points to make it easier to understand. I hope you enjoy the article, and if something is not clear or you have questions, just email me at: jeffreyawingo@gmail.com. It may take a day or two, but I will get back with you.                            

Thanks,

666, CALCULATING THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST PART 1 by Jeff Wingo

Do you know how to calculate the number of the Beast? The Bible has much to say on the subject, and as we study the Word of God, we will see that the Bible eliminates the confusion and useless speculation, which has haunted all attempts to solve this enigma.

When the Apostle John wrote the Revelation, he expected his readers to understand how to calculate the number correctly. After all, he begins the verse with these words: “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast…”.

Simply put, John is saying the verse holds the key to the mystery. Or, as John says, “Here is wisdom…”. So, let us open our Bibles and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us to the solution. The answer is not that difficult, and as you will learn, we find the solution to this mystery in the history, the Law, and the prophets. Since the Bible is God’s book, where else would we look?

Calculating the Number

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.

With wisdom and understanding from the Word as our guide, let us begin to count the number of the Beast.

The word count is a mathematical term. It does mean to “to count with pebbles, to compute, calculate, reckon.” However, many people throughout the centuries stop there and then they eventually turn to various forms of gematria to try to match a name with the number 666.

This can work with certain names, for example, many in the early church and others in later history applied gematria to the Roman emperor Nero, and came up with the number 666. His name does work out to the number 666, but this brings up a great question—do we use Hebrew gematria or Greek? On the other hand, should we use Latin?

Usually, Nero’s name is calculated with Hebrew using his name and title “Nero Caesar.” This does work out to 666, so, is Nero the Antichrist? No, he is not, although he is a type of antichrist, certainly because of his evil brutality against Christians, Jews, and others. However, Nero is not the Antichrist, John wrote about in the book of Revelation. The reason Nero is not the biblical Antichrist is because there are many other factors we must consider.

Those who speculate like this and leave it there (or go to seed on it), often do not realize they are missing some vital biblical information needed to make a logical case proving the identity of the Antichrist Beast. Without this information, we will be incorrect every time. That is why many people have been wrong and made fools of themselves with fruitless speculation and worthless predictions, further discrediting Bible prophecy in the eyes of the church and the world.

World Leaders Accused of being the Antichrist

During the 1980’s more than a few Christians claimed that American President Ronald Reagan was the Antichrist because his name, Ronald Wilson Reagan, which happens to contain six letters in each name. Obviously, Reagan was not the Antichrist, and this kind of subjective speculation is not based on biblical revelation.

Going on, others speculated that Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev was the Antichrist because of a distinctive birthmark on his head, how ridiculous is that? That kind of speculation finds its basis in subjective reasoning without the parameters of biblical truth; perhaps it came to someone in a dream after a night of bad pizza and cheap beer!

Others named as the Antichrist include, Henry Kissinger, the Pope (does not matter, just pick one), Adolph Hitler, Napoleon, Pol Pot, Mussolini (although some Christians thought he was the False Prophet), Joseph Stalin, Chairman Mao; and the following, especially among American Christians: Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and now even Donald Trump! At one time or another, Christians have accused men like these and others of being the biblical Antichrist.

Let us stop the madness right here!

The Apostle John did not intend that we should go through various numerical gymnastics to solve the riddle!

What John intended was that we would use wisdom, “Here is wisdom.” Then he says, “Let him that hath understanding count the number of the Beast.”

The word count is the Greek word psēphizō (Strong’s G5585), and it means to count with pebbles, to compute, calculate, or reckon. In ancient courts of justice, the jury would use pebbles to vote on the defendant, whether guilty or innocent. To cast a black pebble was a vote of guilt and a white pebble would indicate innocence.

Going further, the word “reckon,” as found in the definition of psēphizō means to calculate something, to number, to settle accounts, but it also means “To reason with one’s self and conclude from arguments,” in other words, to come to a conclusion or summation of the matter (Webster, 1828 Dictionary).

Now in order to vote on a court case a jury must consider the facts of the case. Once the defense and prosecution present all of the facts, and “rest” their case, the members of the jury must then consider those facts, and based on that information cast a vote of guilt or innocence.

Therefore, in ancient courts of justice, after the jury has heard all the facts, they would vote using black or white pebbles. The black pebble condemned the accused and the white pebble was a vote for innocence. That is what the Greek word psēphizō means, and that is exactly what I believe John meant when he wrote, “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast…”

Strictly speaking then, we are to reckon or add up the sum of the facts as presented in the Bible. In that way we correctly count the number of the Beast. John did not intend that Christians would accuse someone of being the Antichrist because their name happens to add up to 666. That is not the way to solve the mystery and correctly identify the real Antichrist. However, using wisdom and truth as found in the Bible, and considering all of the facts of the case, The Antichrist vs. God and the People of Earth, takes time, just like the time it takes to present all of the pertinent facts in a court of law.

The Number 666

“…for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

Think about this: the number 666 is the number of a man. That being the case then perhaps we should search the Scriptures and discover all of the facts about the man. That research in turn will provide us with the identity of the man and demonstrate his relation to the infamous number 666; and that information will allow us to calculate the number, correctly identifying the Antichrist Beast.

Here are some men (and one planet/god) in the Bible associated with the number 666, the number of the Beast:

• King Solomon
• King Nebuchadnezzar
• Nephilim giants such as Goliath and several others
• Sethur
• Adonikam
• The planet Saturn–yes, I know it sounds incredible, but the Scriptures testify that many ancient Israelites worshiped the planet Saturn, or more specifically, the ancient demon god represented by that name (even during the Exodus from Egypt. See Acts 7:43 and Amos 5:25-27—where Saturn is called Chiun. The worship of the star god is one of the reasons why God exiled them into Babylon. Compare, Deuteronomy 32:17).

Search the Bible for yourself; see if you can make the connection between the number 666, these men, and one cosmic deity, Saturn. It startles many Christian to learn that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, actually had competition for worship in the Old Testament.

In fact, many of the ancient Israelites worshipped Saturn during the period spent in the wilderness with Moses, and Moses was well aware of their secret affinity for devils (see Deuteronomy 32:15-18). Then, once they settled in the land of Israel, many of the priests continued to lead the people in the worship of Saturn. King Solomon was a leader and innovator in the worship of devils, which, in the long run, served to destroy the nation beyond remedy. I know that is shocking, but as you will discover, the Bible associates this same entity with the Beast of Revelation and the number 6, the number of a man.

Once you see the connection to the number 666, it will lead to one incredible conclusion: The Bible does indeed reveal the identity of the Antichrist Beast!

No more guessing, no more questions, you will know for sure that the Bible holds the key to his identity. After that, all foolish speculation will finally end!

My next post will delve further into the mysteries of the number 666. May God bless you!

THE BEAST RISES: POPULAR MEDIA PROMOTES THE BEAST by Jeff Wingo

Damien Posters for the A&E Series. Photo by  Kate Stanhope, HollywoodReporter.com

A&E Networks has a new show in the works: called, Damien, it picks up the life of Damien Thorne 25 years after the events that occurred in the 1976 supernatural thriller, The Omen, which starred Gregory Peck, Lee Remick, and others.

According to the story line, Damien Thorne was born to the wife of American diplomat Robert Thorne (Gregory Peck). It is revealed throughout the movie that the boy Damien has evil supernatural powers, and is destined to grow up to become the final Antichrist as revealed in the book of Revelation. The new series produced by A&E picks up the story 25 years later.

Well, this past weekend, the Comic-Con convention was held in San Diego. Evidently, every year a group of Christians hold a protest outside the convention hall for this particular event, handing out pamphlets and waving signs that proclaim the gospel message, “Faith in Jesus Saves,” etc. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this year, to promote the new A&E series, the Network hired its own “protestors” to disrupt the Christians by waving signs advertising their new occult series, Damien.

As you can see from the above photo, the sign held by the A&E “protestor” says, “From Flame Damien Will Rise.” In the second photo to the right the sign loudly proclaims, “The Beast Rises.” The sign features the snout of a vicious dog pointing skyward as a metaphor of the rising Beast. The accompanying sign features the infamous number of the Beast, 666.

While it is certainly true that the new A&E series Damien is a work of fiction based on the biblical idea of Antichrist, isn’t it very interesting that the attitude of the world is to celebrate with excitement the arrival of the Beast, even if it is a fictional tale portrayed as a series on TV.

I find it even more intriguing that the sign makers, no doubt following the instructions of the series writers and promoters, portray the Beast as rising from the flames of hell. How interesting that they seem to be following the biblical narrative: as a Beast rising from the abyss.

Revelation 9:1-3, 11 :  And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.  And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.  And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power….And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

As you can see, clearly the text reveals that the Beast (also popularly called the Antichrist), rises from the bottomless pit, or abyss. The final end-time dictator of the world, the Antichrist Beast, is not a human being; he is not a human political or religious leader, or a Muslim from the Middle East.

Odilon Redon Apocalypse of St. John, 1899.

Odilon Redon Apocalypse of St. John, 1899.

The biblical text reveals that he is a supernatural being who rises from the abyss once the key is provided to a “star,” which is a powerful angel (I believe this is Satan), who unlocks the abyss, removes the lid, and releases not only the Beast, but an army of locust-like creatures who will torment the world for five months.

As if to strengthen his argument, the writer of Revelation, the Apostle John, repeats the information several more times. The coming Antichrist Beast of the book of Revelation arises from the abyss.

Revelation 11:7:  And when they (the two witnesses) shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

Revelation 17:8:  The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

Indeed, the end-time ruler of planet Earth will be a Beast that rises from the flames of a hellish abyss. He is there even now, suffering, and awaiting his release from the dark prison of Tartarus, the lowest place in the abyss; in fact, Tartarus is often described as a well, the well of the abyss; a place even lower than the abyss itself.

The fans of Damien are celebrating the release of this new series on A&E Television, and interestingly, when the real Beast is released from the abyss, the world will celebrate its new leader.

Revelation 13:4: And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

I wonder if anyone ever stops to realize, or even consider the fact, there is a biblical reality behind this fictional series? The writers don’t seem to mind as they mock the biblical gospel, and revealed biblical truth, regarding the real Antichrist Beast—-the end-time ruler who will, in the near future, rise from the abyss. God has revealed all of this in His Word, and as the Bible reveals, God is not mocked (Galatians 6: 7).

I have said, and others have as well, that the people of the world are being mentally and emotionally conditioned to respond in a positive way when the Antichrist Beast does rise from the abyss. It appears that the conditioning process is working just fine; and it also appears to be working overtime.

Thanks for visiting.

You don’t have to be deceived by the conditioning process of the world system. Jesus died, was buried, and three days later conquered the grave, giving eternal life to all who call upon His name. Come to faith in Christ, believe the gospel, and be saved from the power of sin, and the deceitful world system (See 1 Cor.15:1-4; and Romans 10:9-10,13).

UFOs and aliens will play a major part in the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. If you would like to learn more about that then I recommend my book Alien Antichrist, The Terrifying Truth about UFOs and Aliens, Antichrist, and the End of Days.

The book is an in-depth look at the relationship between UFO and alien phenomena and the Antichrist Beast mentioned by the Biblical prophets such as Joel, Daniel, and the Apostles John and Paul. All of them spoke about the end of days and an invasion of our planet by the Fallen Ones. Joel called them a “great army, ” and Daniel said the Beast would lead the world to worship an “alien god.”

Paul said the strong delusion of the last days will be linked with a strange sight in the heavens that is meant to be observed–and he linked this strange sight in the heavens with the Man of Sin, the Antichrist. John revealed that the Fallen Angels will be cast to the Earth, and this will be linked with fire from the heavens–with that said, did you know that angels are called ministers of fire? Are UFOs chariots of God? Or, are the UFO Chariots we see a type of angel? What are the wheels within the wheel that Ezekiel saw, and are they actually UFOs? I address all of this in the book!

Get the book and be informed, then when the aliens suddenly appear in the heavens and invade Earth you will know the truth of what is going on and won’t fall for the Great Deception. The Lord said that His people perish for lack of knowledge: be armed, be informed!

You can get the book at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. And if you have Kindle Unlimited and Kindle Prime you can download a copy free through that program!

666: THE WORSHIP OF SATURN AND HIS RELATIONSHIP TO THE BEAST OF REVELATION by Jeff Wingo

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.  Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the LORD, whose name is The God of hosts” (Amos 5:25-27).

Please note: This is my final article on the series, 666: Calculating the Number of the Beast. If my articles have increased your understanding of this puzzling topic let me know!

****************************************************************************************

If you read the earlier articles in this series, 666: Calculating the Number of the Beast (parts 1-5), then you know that King Solomon in his later years abandoned the God of heaven for a bloodthirsty demon god called Molech or Moloch.

Molech went by many names in the ancient world, and I have already discussed that aspect in another article, but essentially all of the names attached to this deity point to one god: Kronus in the Greek, and Saturn by those in Rome.

The River Styx by Félix Resurrección Hidalgo (19th century).

The River Styx by Félix Resurrección Hidalgo (19th century).

Wherever the god Saturn was worshiped the blood of his victims flowed as deep as the river Styx. The River Styx as you may recall, was the barrier between the world of the living and that of the dead. In the mythology of the Greeks, the river was venerated even by the gods, who at times would swear oaths binding their word to the power of the river. It was also believed that bodies dipped into the river would receive the gift of immortality.

Such was the power of Styx that Thetis, mother of Achilles, dipped the child in the river, thus ensuring his immortality. Her one failing in this respect however, was that when she dipped him in the river she held onto his heel. Thus, the only vulnerable spot on the demigod Achilles was his heel, a fact that Paris, under the guidance of Apollo, later took advantage of during the Trojan war. This of course gave rise to the phrase “Achilles heel,” referring to a weakness or mortal vulnerability that could be exploited by one’s enemies.

It is not hard to see that the Greek myth of Achilles still carries a small fragmented memory of a biblical prophecy. Genesis 3:15, states that the serpent would bruise the heel of the seed of the woman. The Serpent must have thought that the “heel” of Christ referred to a vulnerability that could be exploited in the Son of God.

The Crucifixion of Jehohanan. His heel has been pierced with a Roman nail.

The Crucifixion of Jehohanan. His heel has been pierced with a Roman nail.

Thus, when Christ was on the cross, Satan must have personally ensured that the heel also received a nail, pinning the Son of God to the cross, and exploiting (what he thought) was his only vulnerable spot.

To the left is the heel of a man named Yehohanan who suffered a painful death by crucifixion in the 1st century. As you can see the nail penetrated the heel. This was the standard method used by the Romans; and this became better known once the ossuary of Yehohanan was discovered in 1968. It proves that when Jesus was crucified the nail penetrated both heels at once; in fact, the feet were parallel and the nail penetrated both heels which were fastened to the vertical beam of the cross. {2}

I believe the ancient Adversary of the Seed of the Woman was so deceived himself, that he believed his own myth–that Christ could have been defeated if only his heel were bruised.

But in reality, by bruising the Seed of the Woman, Satan actually brought about his own defeat, because it was through the cross the Jesus brought victory to humanity. What really happened was the defeat of the Serpent because through the cross Jesus bruised the head of the Serpent, just as the prophecy predicted. The New Testament teaches us about the victory of Jesus when He suffered the torments of Calvary:

Colossians 2:14-15: Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;  And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

In the wisdom of God the cross bruised the serpents head and brought victory to those who would come to believe the gospel: Jesus died for our sins–He blotted out the law which was against us, and nailed our sin to the cross so that when we come to faith in Christ we bear our sin no more! On the third day Jesus arose victorious over His enemies! That is victory my friends, true victory for you and me!

An Evil Attempt to Prevent the Arrival of the Seed of the Woman

After the fall of Adam and Eve, God gave a prophecy about the coming “seed of the woman,” or Messiah, who would redeem humankind from the power of sin and death.

Genesis 3:15:  And I will put enmity between thee (the serpent) and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Satan, as the father of the seed of the serpent, wanted to ensure that “the seed of the woman” would not reach maturity. So, in response to the prophecy, soon after the fall of mankind, Satan instituted a priesthood and a cult among the ancient tribes. Later the practices of this evil cult were adopted by the Ammonites, Canaanites, Phoenicians, Carthaginians (under the name Baal-hamon), and many others to destroy small children.

As powerful as Satan is, even he is not omniscient, or all-knowing, and so he set up a method of systematic slaughter as an insane attempt to kill the seed of the woman. His strategy was to empower the priesthood of the fire god Molech or Cronus/Saturn, which led to a holocaust of destruction; and we even see this carried forth into the modern world by the rite (a so-called right) of abortion.

Friends, I realize this is hard stuff, most Christians don’t like to talk about this aspect of Bible prophecy either, but nonetheless, as you will see, there is a connection here with the number of the Beast, 666.

The god Saturn or Cronus/Kronos is the same entity as the god Molech, often referred to as the Hidden god. In fact, this may surprise many of you, but when Moses went up on the mount at Sinai to receive the 10 Commandments, the people resorted to the worship of Cronus/Saturn. The Golden Calf the children of Israel danced around was actually a representation of the Egyptian god of the dead, Osiris, also known as Apis the Bull; as such he was also known as the Hidden One. Indeed, Apis was only another name for the god Saturn, the Hidden One of antiquity. {1}

In the language of the Chaldeans the name Saturn is spelled STUR and numerically the letters of the name add up to the number of the Beast.

S = 60, T = 400, U = 6, R = 200, totaling 666, the number of the Beast.

According to Steven, the first martyr of the Christian church, many of the ancient Israelites secretly worshiped Saturn as they wandered in the wilderness for 40 years.

Acts 7:40-43: Saying unto Aaron, Make us gods to go before us: for as for this Moses, which brought us out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.  And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.  Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness? 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.

Remphan and Moloch are the god Saturn, a celestial deity represented by a star. As incredible as it sounds the planet Saturn, the celestial representation of Moloch is the 6th planet in our solar system. And, even more impossible to believe, Saturn also has a 6-pointed star as a permanent feature at its northern pole. It is known as the Saturn  Hexagon,  a strange wind pattern that has even been seen by amateur astronomers from Earth.  This unique wind pattern on Saturn could only be seen in our time. Is this somehow a marker, a sign in the wilderness of space that the god Saturn is going to return?

So who is Saturn? Saturn, Cronus, and Moloch are all  a veiled reference to none other than Satan, the god of this world. Saturn was known as a devourer of children, and Satan is the devourer of all who reject Jesus Christ.

There are many veiled references to Saturn in the Bible, and in ancient history. Saturn is often represented by a star, as referenced in the Bible verses provided above. According to Velikovsky,”the Babylonians called Saturn ‘the Star of Tammuz.’” {4} Sun worship, and the worship of Tammuz, is mentioned in your Bible by the prophet Ezekiel (8:14). These were all part of the evil abominations he witnessed in the Temple in Jerusalem–a place reserved for the worship of the true God of heaven, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Folks, this goes deep, and I go in-depth with this in my book Alien Antichrist, in chapter 11 called The Image of the Beast, so I am not going to go any more in-depth with this here. But suffice it to say that even the ancient Babylonians referred to Saturn as the star of Tammuz. {4}

PLEASE NOTE: At this point many people go into an anti-Semitic rant against the Jewish flag and the Jewish people; all because they use a six-pointed star on their national flag. But since I am not a hater of Israel or the Jewish people, I don’t think it is necessary to demonize Israel or Jews. Suffice it to say that God will take care of Israel as He has always done; He will also deal with the nation in His own time and way, just as He will deal with all nations before the present age is over. We are all equally guilty before a Holy God. And before we get on our high and mighty horse, the United States is far from perfect and our government for the past 50 years has become a lot less than our Founders envisioned.

I am not really worried about Israel so much as I am about the United States of America–a nation given so much; so much freedom, and so much prosperity, but a nation now (at least it seems) almost wholly given over to a multitude of sins and self-deceptions.

Now to get back to our examination of Saturn, many secret societies use a star symbol, and many use the 6-pointed star as a symbol of their deity. There are all kinds of kooky websites out there that go to seed on stuff like this, but let me point out one major item you may research if you are interested. Historically, the hexagram, a 6-pointed star, has often stood as a symbol of Saturn or Satan. And, I must warn you, if you do look closer at this, and if you dig too deep into history, you may not like what you find.

I will finish this article with one more sign pointing to the Star of Tammuz, or Saturn as a symbol of Satan and the number of the Beast, 666. Here is a painting by Rubens of Saturn devouring his own child, as revealed by the ancient myths. The point I want to make is that Rubens as an artist understood Saturn, and the symbology associated with Saturn and Satan.

Don’t look at the depiction of the pagan god as he is devouring his child. Look at the top of the painting, for there you will see 3 stars, and each star has 6 points. Those 3 stars with 6 points each total 666, the number of the Beast. Rubens knew art, but he also understood the symbology of Saturn, as the image of the Beast.

The Apostle John revealed in the book of Revelation, that the worship of Saturn (Satan) will be intricately linked with the worship of the Antichrist Beast  at the end of days.

Revelation 9:1:  And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.

Close up of Rubens painting showing 3 six pointed stars, totaling the number of the Beast, 666.

I am of the opinion that the star that opens the pit, or abyss, is none other than Satan, pictured here as a star. Could it be that at the end of days a great sight will appear in the skies? Is it possible that this star will hit the Earth, and be revealed as the star of Saturn, an Angel of Light? Could it be that this Angel of Light is none other than Heyel ben Shachar, Lucifer the Light-Bearer, the Shining One, posing as the Morning Star?

Isaiah 14:12:  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!

And could it be that the Light-Bearer will pretend to be “the Light,” Jesus, coming back a second time? The Apostle Paul warned us to be careful of the “angel of light.” Because his true nature is that of a roaring lion; and he prowls about, seeking those he may to DEVOUR (1 Peter 5:8); just like the ancient god Saturn.

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

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

The Conquest of the Amorites; watercolor circa 1896–1902 by James Tissot.

The Conquest of the Amorites; watercolor circa 1896–1902 by James Tissot.

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

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.

Moses and the Messengers from Canaan, by Giovanni Lanfranco, 1621-1624.

Moses and the Messengers from Canaan, by Giovanni Lanfranco, 1621-1624.

 

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.

John the Apostle on Patmos by Jacopo Vignali, 17th century

John the Apostle on Patmos by Jacopo Vignali, 17th century

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!

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

David and Goliath. by Antonio Zanchi, 1631-1722

David and Goliath. by Antonio Zanchi, 1631-1722

In the Garden of Eden after the tragic fall of our first parents Adam and Eve, God spoke a word to them, and to the serpent,  regarding the Great War of the Ages that would soon begin to unfold between the seed of the serpent, and the seed of the woman.

Genesis 3:15: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

This is the point at which God placed a natural enmity between the two seeds, that of the serpent, and that of the woman. The word enmity means “a feeling or condition of hostility; hatred; ill will; animosity; antagonism.” {1} And that is exactly what we have between the human race and the fallen spiritual powers. Specifically, the war is between Satan the fallen cherub, and Jesus, the Son of God.

When Jesus took upon Himself the nature of a human man he, as theanthropos, the God-Man, forever genetically linked Himself with the human race.

  • Hebrews 2:9:  But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
  • Hebrews 2:14:  Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil.
  • Hebrews 2:16:  For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.
The Annunciation by Fra Angelico, created 1430-1432.

The Annunciation by Fra Angelico, created 1430-1432.

I believe the Fallen One knew that the Eternal Son of God would one day be born of the seed of the woman, which specifically refers to the virgin birth through Mary (see Matt.1:18-25; Lk.1:26-38). That is one of the reasons that particular doctrine is so hated by so many people, and also hated by the Fallen Ones as well: because it assures their defeat by the seed of the woman, Jesus Christ, just as predicted at Genesis 3:15.

So, with the fall of humanity, the Serpent had an inroad, and he took full advantage of the weaknesses and sinful proclivities of the human race. In the midst of human sin, a group of Fallen Angels abandoned their natural domain, and began a mission to thoroughly corrupt the genetic structure of humanity; thus assuring (or so they thought), that with the corruption of the human genome it would be impossible to produce the seed of the woman.

According to Genesis 6 these Fallen Angels abandoned their spiritual body (Greek, oikētērion; Strong’s G3613). We find proof of this from the Apostle Jude:

  • Jude 1:6:  And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

The word habitation is the Greek word oikētērion which refers to their body. The word is only used in one other place in the NT, at 2 Cor. 5:2, where Paul states that Christian believers desire to trade their earthly body (oikētērion) for an eternal spiritual body (oikētērion). The English word here is house, which is the Greek oikētērion.

“For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven.”

While I do not understand all of the specifics here, Jude seems to be saying that these fallen beings somehow shed the inter-dimensional spiritual components of their body, or, that their inter-dimensional body was somehow transformed (possibly a reverse process?) into a body that is earthly, and that the new body, through this process, because it has its own DNA, is also DNA compatible with humans. {2}

The offspring produced by the Fallen Ones are called Nephilim, a human/angel hybrid. This was a grave sin in the eyes of God and as a result the flood was sent to cleanse the Earth. The fallen angels who instigated this kind of rebellion against the Creator were cast into the dark prison of the abyss, or Tartarus.

2 Peter 2:4: For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment…

These fallen angels were placed in a dark prison called Tartarus. They are being reserved for the Great Tribulation as instruments of judgment. When released they will go forth as locusts covering the Earth with an invasion unlike anything ever seen since the creation of the universe. They are intricately associated with the revelation of the Antichrist Beast who arises from his tomb of darkness into the light of an astonished world (see Revelation chapter 9).

The number 666 links these fallen angelic locusts with the Antichrist Beast, and with their progeny the Nephilim of an earlier time in Earth history.

Everyone is familiar with the story of David and Goliath, but did you know that Goliath had four brothers and they were Nephilim, or the descendants of the Nephilim? According to Unger’s Bible Dictionary Goliath and his brothers (2 Sam.21:19) were probably descendants of the old Rephaim, who were the remnants of the giants or Nephilim. {3}

1 Samuel 17: 4:  And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.  And he had an helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass.  And he had greaves of brass upon his legs, and a target of brass between his shoulders.  And the staff of his spear was like a weaver’s beam; and his spear’s head weighed six hundred shekels of iron: and one bearing a shield went before him.

Here in this description of Goliath and the war equipment he carried; the number of implements reveals the infamous number of the Antichrist Beast, 666.

  1. Height, 6 cubits                                    Goliath was dressed for war. His
  2. Helmet of brass                                     height and equipment equal the
  3. Coat of mail                                           number of the Beast with 3– 6’s.
  4. Greaves of brass                                    666, the number of the Beast
  5. Target of brass                                       because Goliath was a beast.
  6. Spear head–6 hundred shekels of iron
Goliath laughs at David, 1915, by Ilya Repin

Goliath laughs at David, 1915, by Ilya Repin

Goliath was 6 cubits tall, he carried a spear’s head which weighed  6 hundred shekels of iron, and he carried 6 different types of armor including the spearhead. This links Goliath with the rebellion of the Nephilim and war against God–for he was dressed in the number of the ultimate spirit of antichrist, the Beast of the book of Revelation.

It further ties Goliath as a sign of the Beast of Revelation and the number 666 because he is a descendant of another incursion of Fallen Ones at the time of the Tower of Babel, or soon thereafter, because Abraham encountered the Rephaim in his war with the kings (Gen.14:5).

Another Clue of the Antichrist Beast 

2 Samuel 21:20: And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant.

Here the Rephaim giant has 6 fingers on each hand and 6 toes on each foot.  So here we have 666 plus an extra 6 (see if you can figure out where the other 2–6’s are and let me know!). This proves the tie-in with the Nephilim progeny of the Fallen Ones, and the number associated with the Beast–because the Beast himself, Apollyon/Abbadon is the King of the abyss, and the number of his name is associated with 666.

All of these clues point to the Beast from the Abyss. As John revealed the name of the Beast 3 times, so these clues provide a link to the number.

In my next post for this series (which will be the last), 666: Calculating The Number of the Beast, we will look at one last set of clues from the Old Testament demonstrating that the number 666 is linked with the Beast from the Abyss just like the Apostle John said he was in Revelation 13.

Until then, thanks for visiting.

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

Vanity of vanities, all is vanity. Old and meditative king Solomon by Isaac Asknaziy.

Vanity of vanities, all is vanity. Old and meditative king Solomon by Isaac Asknaziy.

As we studied in the last article, later in life King Solomon became a type of the Antichrist Beast. He is one of the signs in the Bible that point to the identity of the Antichrist. Once we study all of the relevant information then we will have enough facts to “cast a vote” to decide the case before us, Antichrist vs. God, and the People of Earth.

Lucifer, by Alessandro Vellutello (1534), for Dante's Inferno, canto 34

Lucifer, by Alessandro Vellutello (1534), for Dante’s Inferno, canto 34

As the Bible reveals, Solomon departed from Yahweh, the God of heaven, and began to follow the occult gnosis or hidden knowledge of the god of this world. Paul called Satan the theos or god of this world (2 Cor.4:4); the English world is the Greek word aiōn or age–which refers to the current period of time until the redemption of all things and Christ returns.

Jesus called Satan the prince or archon of this world (John 12:31). The Greek archon refers to his present position as the chief ruler of the evil world system or kosmos, during the present aion or age.

The kosmos in turn refers to the ungodly world system we are surrounded by; concerning the lost mass of humanity it refers to “the ungodly multitude; the whole mass of men alienated from God, and therefore hostile to the cause of Christ.”  (Thayer-Strong’s G2889 – kosmos); concerning the things of this world it refers to ” the whole circle of earthly goods, endowments riches, advantages, pleasures, etc., which although hollow and frail and fleeting, stir desire, seduce from God and are obstacles to the cause of Christ” (Thayer, Ibid). Considering all of this John rightly states that “the whole world lieth in wickedness” (1 John 5:19). What that means is that the whole world “lies in the power of the evil one, i.e., is held in subjection by the devil” (Thayer).

Both Solomon and the Antichrist Beast are followers of the same corrupted leader, the Archon or Chief Ruler of the kosmos or world system. Satan corrupted both kings; he used Solomon to work evil on Earth among Israel and the surrounding nations; thus extending a corrupting influence to many other lands; and in the future Satan will use the Antichrist Beast to corrupt and destroy the great majority of mankind during the Tribulation.

A Comparison of King Solomon And the Antichrist, Apollyon, the Beast from the Abyss: Revelation 9:11

   King Solomon, associated with the number 666

Antichrist Beast: Apollyon the Destroyer, associated with the number 666

Abandoned God to follow the ruling Archon

Abandoned God to follow the ruling Archon

Sought occult knowledge from alien gods (fallen angels, demons)

Sought occult knowledge from alien god (Satan)

Sacrificed human children for occult power

Will sacrifice humans (Christians, Jews, and resistors) for occult power

Blasphemed God of heaven through his actions

Will blaspheme God of heaven through his words and deeds

Destroyed his nation through idol worship, immorality, and child sacrifice

Will destroy the world through devil worship; the cult of the Dragon and the Beast, which includes human sacrifice

What did Solomon get in exchange for this? All in all it spoiled and corrupted the nation of Israel. This later resulted in the division of the nation; Judah in the South, and Israel in the north. Is it without doubt that Solomon was mightily deceived, but was he deceived by these demon gods because they visually appeared to him as God has done earlier in his life? Is it possible that Moloch appeared as a visual manifestation in much the same way that alien beings appear to people today?

Concerning idol worship Paul wrote:

“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 Cor.10:19-21).

Because Solomon was directly involved with the worship of fallen beings he may have had a visitation. After all, these are the same beings who now appear to people as aliens.

Think about this: the aliens that many people are longing to meet have been here in the past–they are the ancient gods of blood and sacrifice, Moloch, and all of the other incarnations. Now they pretend to be aliens!

666-mark-of-the-beast_jpg_w560h420The Bible reveals the true identity of the Antichrist; its been hidden in plain sight in YOUR copy of the Bible. Significantly, John the Revelator exposed the identity of the Antichrist within the text of the book of Revelation three times so that Christians in the future will not be deceived. I believe John intended that we would use the number 666; and that we would search the biblical text for the meaning of the number, further exposing the identity of the Beast. All of the information in these articles will help you to know how to apply the number 666 to the biblical text of both Testaments; these biblical types found in the text will reveal the meaning behind the number.

Who is the Antichrist? John revealed his identity three times:

  • Rev. 11:7:  And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
  • Rev.17:8: The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

Revelation 9:11 places a name on the Beast:

And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

It is significant that the name of the Beast is Destroyer. Just as Jesus came to save his people from their sin (Matt.1:21), so the beast will destroy his people through sin, as the man of sin (2 Thess. 2:3); he is the son of perdition, which means destruction.

Another King, Nebuchadnezzar, set up an image on the plain of Dura:

People_Forced_to_Worship_Idol_by_King_Nebuchadnezzar_001

“Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits (60), and the breadth thereof six cubits (6): he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon…That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer (6 instruments), and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up”  (Daniel 3:1, 5).

Here in Daniel chapter 3 is another revelation of the number of the Beast, 666. The image is 60 cubits high, and six cubits wide. The dimensions of the image provide us with 2-6’s. Count the number of musical instruments in verse five and it reveals the third 6, for the signpost of Antichrist, 666.

Why is the number 666 tied in with this verse? As I explained in an earlier article called, Creation of the Image of the Beast, the number 666 points to the Antichrist Beast and the image that will be created in the mind of the beast followers during the Tribulation. This image will cause the beast followers to worship the Beast through the mental image. This is just another confirmation that Apollyon is the Beast who will arise from the abyss to assume his position as the end-time Antichrist.

In my next post I will continue exploring the biblical connection to Apollyon the Beast from the abyss, and the number of his name 666, with his ancient progeny, the Nephilim.

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

Solomon At His Throne, painting by Andreas Brugger, 1777

Solomon At His Throne, painting by Andreas Brugger, 1777

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 looked at what the Apostle John really meant when we wrote, “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast…”

What we discovered is that the word count is the Greek word psēphizō (Strong’s G5585), means much more than just counting, computing, or adding the sum of a name to see if the name value equals 666.  It also means to vote, as in a court of law, by casting a pebble into an urn, to decide a case by voting.

Now, as I explained, the Greek word psēphizō is related to another word, psēphos, (Strong’s G5586  ) which refers to “a small worn smooth stone, a pebble” used to cast a vote in court to decide whether the 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 conclusion regarding a case 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.

So, our task is to search the Bible, study the facts it provides, and in this way solve the enigma of the number of the Beast, 666.

KING SOLOMON: A TYPE OF THE ANTICHRIST BEAST

The Dream of Solomon, Luca Giordano, 1693

The Dream of Solomon, Luca Giordano, 1693

Without doubt, Solomon is one of the most enigmatic figures in the Bible. He begins his reign with the blessings of God, and it seems as if God showers Solomon with an over abundance of wealth and wisdom. Yet Solomon gradually drifted away from the wisdom and blessing of the God of heaven, for the hidden gnosis or knowledge of the god of this world.

 

Solomon's descent into idolatry, Willem de Poorter, Rijksmuseum

Solomon’s descent into idolatry, Willem de Poorter, Rijksmuseum

“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).

 

It should be noted that every one of these demon gods required human sacrifice. Ashtoreth was a cultic fertility goddess which resulted in the moral debauchery of the people through both male and female temple prostitution. This literally destroyed the foundation of the family and the nation, not only because of its immorality, but because it also included child sacrifice.

It should be equally noted at this point that these were not imaginary gods; by that I mean, these gods were empowered by the Fallen Ones–there was 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 UFO accounts). There was a reality to these beings, a reality so intoxicating that it caused the kings of Israel and the people to surrender their will (individually and collectively), as well as their little children, to the image of the beast.

All of the gods listed here 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. Molech or Moloch is also associated by the Romans with the god Saturn, an ancient cosmic deity worshipped by the Israelites during the 40 years spent in the wilderness with Moses, and later in the Temple proper by Solomon, Manasseh, and many of the other kings of Israel.

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.

Saturn was seen as the devourer of his own children, and so others offered their own children to the image of this god, the image of the Beast. Symbolically we also see the devourer of children in Revelation 12:4: there the Dragon waits for the birth of Jesus so that he may devour him as soon as he is born.

Historically, the Greek chronicler Diodorus Siculus provided this description of Cronus, the Carthaginian fire god:

The offering of a child to the god Molech

The offering of a child to the god Molech

“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.”

It is incredible that human beings could be this deceived that they would offer their children in this manner. We tend to think of ourselves as more sophisticated than ancient people; but today our culture (and cultures around the world) also continue this practice offering up little children to the image of the beast–the image of self and pleasure, through the ritual act of abortion.

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, the Mercy Seat on the Ark of the Covenant was made of pure gold, and the Wise Men brought the Christ child gold. Gold is also a symbol of idolatry, for instance the golden calf worshipped at the foot of Sinai. Historically, gold is likewise a symbol for immortality; in keeping with the ancient mystery religions, the old Alchemists vainly tried to turn base metals like lead into gold.

The alchemical goal is actually an attempt 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 secret societies and the ancient Mystery religions also promised transformation or godhood to the highest adepts through the application of gnosis, or the knowledge of the gods. Solomon is an example in the Bible of a man who forsakes Yahweh, the God of heaven, for the secret gnosis of the Fallen Ones. In all reality it is a vain attempt: Solomon later filled with regret cried out, “Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity”  (Ecclesiastes 1:2).

The Bible exposes our minds to the enigmatic symbolism of the Antichrist Beast through Solomon, the backslidden king of Israel:

2 Chronicles 9:13:  Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred and threescore and six talents of gold.

Of course this gold came to Solomon because of his economic and military policies: Through heavy taxation upon the people, and through the ships and other traders employed by the king. A verse from Revelation 13 comes to mind. It exposes the economic policy of the New World Order once the Beast seizes the reins of power:

Rev. 13:16-17:  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

The number 666 is associated with economic and religious power. Babylon the Great will be a wealthy empire for a short period of time. In order to buy or sell though, a person will have to submit to the will of the Beast by means of the image, which is an occult initiation that imprints the mind with a living image of the Beast, and the mark which tags a person as the property of both the Beast and the empire of Babylon the Great.

Human sacrifice will become common place in Babylon the Great. The Beast will make war against the saints (Dan. 7:21), and in Rev. 13:7, the Beast continues his war against the saints, and in doing so he will overcome or conquer them ( Strong’s G3528 – nikaō). Daniel 8:24 says the Beast will corrupt and destroy the “mighty and the holy people.”

According to Revelation 11: 7 “the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them (Christians, the saints), and shall overcome (kill) them.” Rev.13:10 tells us that during this time the saints will be tried and this experience will test “the patience and the faith of the saints.”  Rev.13:15 reveals that the cultic worship of the Beast will also test the saints of God because those who refuse to worship the Beast will be killed.

The religious aspects of Babylon the Great will so permeate world culture that the spiritual powers of the Beast, and the False Prophet, will be turned against the people of God causing them to become a sacrifice to Satan and the Beast system–so much so that the shedding of the blood of the saints will become a special type of spiritual communion among the followers of the Beast:

Rev.17:6: And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

During this time the saints of God will only be able to overcome the Beast “by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony;” in other words, through death by sacrifice, and they will yield to this mainly because they will not have a choice, and so it will be said that “they loved not their lives unto the death” (Rev.12: 11), and their testimony for Christ will shine for eternity like a sparkling diamond (Rev. 20: 4).

Friends, the coming Tribulation is much more than some Christians have made it out to be. I realize that Bible prophecy is fascinating, but lets not have any illusions: it will be a very difficult time.

The Golden Throne of Solomon

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

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

“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, ivory and gold, used to construct the throne. There is symbolism here as well but at this time I want to focus on the 6 six steps, and the 6 lions on each step mounted on both sides of the throne, giving a total of 12 lions. For it is here that we find the symbolism directly related to the Antichrist Beast and his number, 666.  In a fascinating manner the triple 6 is also related to another throne, one that in the future may be found in Jerusalem.

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.

The throne of Solomon with its three 6’s points directly to this throne, the Throne of God as found in the Temple in Jerusalem. The throne symbolism also points to the human heart, because in the New Testament the temple of God is the human body, the heart of course being the center of the mind and emotions, especially the will.

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

God does give a very dire warning to those who would toy with the Beast and receive his image into the heart: “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).

We are made in the image of God. Of course the image is more than just the human body, nevertheless, the Holy Spirit does inform us that our physical body is a container for His presence, and if the temple is defiled by the mark or image of the Beast, the consequences are very severe (Rev.14:9-11.)

The symbolism of Solomon points directly at the Beast of Revelation whose name and number are revealed as 666. Solomon turned into the Beast. The rabbit hole goes deep here, because as I revealed in my book, Alien Antichrist, my hypothesis is that the Beast of Revelation was a king during the days of Noah. He ruled the antediluvian world as the King of Babylon, and spiritually Babylon has always opposed the Kingdom of God and the people of God. Could that be why Babylon occurs 286 times in 282 verses of the King James Bible? Babylon is always evil, and Gods people always have to deal with its evil and idolatry. In fact, Isaiah links Babylon and its evil king with the symbol of Gold:

Isaiah 14:14:  That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!

Historically, Babylon captured Jerusalem, the city of God, and made eunuchs of Gods royal people (Is. 39:7).  Throughout history Babylon is linked with idols and false gods, and symbolically Babylon has always labored to capture the city of God and turn God’s people into spiritual eunuchs. The king of Babylon is still doing this even today through the surrender of biblical doctrine and truth by millions of Christians all across the world. Many churches have capitulated to the spirit of antichrist and have become spiritual eunuchs in the eyes of God.

One day a new Solomon will arise and take his seat on the Throne of God and rule the world through a global empire called Babylon the Great. Don’t try to become popular in the eyes of Babylon by compromising the great truths of the Word of God. Don’t yield to the spirit of Antichrist and become a spiritual eunuch for the Beast.

In my next post I will continue exploring the connection of the number of the Beast, 666, and other symbols found deep in the pages of your Bible.

Until then, thanks for visiting.

I realize that articles like this are heavy and hard to bear for some people. But we must understand that Bible prophecy is a spiritual reality, and we must also face the fact that God has a purpose for allowing hard, difficult things like those found in this article.

Jesus Christ is our only hope. We cannot escape spiritual realities, we do live in a fallen world. Find hope in Christ and hold steadfast to His unchanging grace. Jesus died, was buried, and conquered the grave, rising from the dead to save us from our sin. That is the heart of the gospel. Come to Christ, believe in Him, eternity is forever!

Thanks again.

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

Revelation 13:18 Revealing the Number of the Beast

Revelation 13:18
Revealing the Number of the Beast

Do you know how to calculate the number of the Beast? If we follow what the Bible has to say it will eliminate much of the confusion and useless speculation which has haunted all attempts to solve this enigma.

When the Apostle John wrote the Revelation he expected his readers to be able to calculate the number correctly. After all, he begins the verse with these words: “Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding count the number of the beast…”. In other words, John is saying the verse itself holds the key to understand the mystery–“Here is Sophia, which is the Greek word for wisdom. It specifically refers to understanding  that is “broad and full of intelligence; used of the knowledge of very diverse matters.” Thayer says that it is “the intelligence evinced in discovering the meaning of some mysterious number or vision.” The word sophia comes from a root sophos which refers to someone wise,  a skilled craftsman, a worker, a learned man, who forms the best plans and uses the best means to execute the plans.

So get ready, get your pencils sharpened, and allow the Bible and the Holy Spirit to guide us to the solution. The answer is not that difficult, and as you will learn, all of the answers are found in the history, the Law, and the prophets. Since the Bible is God’s book, where else would we look?

Calculating the Number

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.

With wisdom and understanding through the Scriptures let us begin to count the number of the Beast.

The word count is a mathematical term. It does mean to “to count with pebbles, to compute, calculate, reckon.” But many people throughout the centuries stop there; and what they do is use gematria to try to match a name with the number 666.

Nero-Caesar-666-e1404339527796This can work with certain names, for instance, many in the early church and others in later history applied this to Nero, the Roman Emperor from 54 to 68 A.D.. But do we use Hebrew gematria or Greek?

neronkaisar

In our example the name of Nero Caesar, or Greek Neron Kaisr (Kaiser)  equals the sum, 666. But is Nero the Antichrist? The truth is, he is a type of Antichrist because of his evil brutality against Christians, Jews, and others. But was he the Antichrist, the Beast John wrote about in Revelation? The answer is no, he was not the Antichrist. I have come to understand this because we are missing vital information needed to make a logical case proving the identity of the Antichrist Beast; and without that information we will be incorrect every time. That is why many people have been wrong and made fools of themselves and in the process, have discredited Bible prophecy in the eyes of the church and the world.

World Leaders Accused of being the Antichrist into Contemporary Times

Ronald Reagan Does this man look like the Antichrist??? Of course not!

Does this man look like the Antichrist??? Of course not!

Did you know that in the 1980’s a few Christians (actually quite a lot more than just a few) were running around passing the word from church to church that Ronald Wilson Reagan was the Antichrist? Count the letters of his name and I bet you will end up with three 6’s.

Mikhail Gorbachev Look at his forehead, does that birthmark look like a dragon??? Of course not!

Mikhail Gorbachev
Look at his forehead, does that birthmark look like a dragon??? Of course not!

Or, that the leader of the now defunct Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, was the antichrist because he had a birthmark on his forehead that some kooky Christians said resembled a dragon (of all things).

Henry Kissinger, the Pope (doesn’t matter, just pick one), Adolph Hitler, Napoleon, Pol Pot, Mussolini (although some Christians thought he was the False Prophet), Joseph Stalin, Chairman Mao; and the following, especially among American Christians, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, and (not surprised here) Barack Obama. All of these men have been accused (sadly) by Christians of being the Antichrist!

So with all this calculating going on I went online and found an English gematria calculator, and I couldn’t resist: Jeffrey Wingo = Ah, sorry, its 858, thank God my fears have been relieved, I am not the Antichrist!

The Apostle John did not intend that we should go through all of these numerical gymnastics.

What John intended was that we would use wisdom, “Here is wisdom.” Then he says, “Let him that hath understanding count the number of the Beast.”

The word count is the Greek word psēphizō (Strong’s G5585),  and it means to count with pebbles, to compute, calculate, reckon. It also means to explain by computing, in other words, to compute or put together the facts of a court case, to decide by voting.

Now in order to vote on a court case a jury must consider the facts of the case. Once the defense and prosecution have presented all of the facts the members of the jury must then consider those facts, and based on that information cast a vote of guilt or innocence.

So, in the ancient courts of justice, after the jury has heard all the facts, the accused were then condemned by either a black pebble or acquitted by a white pebble. That is what the Greek word  psēphizō means, and that is exactly what I believe John meant when he wrote, “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast…”

He didn’t mean to run off half-cocked and accuse political and religious leaders of being the Antichrist just because their name or title added up to 666. That is not using wisdom, but considering all of the facts of the case, Antichrist vs. God and the People of Earth, takes time, just like the time it takes to present all of the pertinent facts in a court of law.

 The Number 666

“for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

Think about this: the number 666 is the number of a man. That being the case then perhaps we should find out all of the facts about that man. That research in turn will provide us with the identity of the man and demonstrate how he is related to the infamous number 666; and that information will allow us to properly calculate the number, correctly identifying the Antichrist Beast.

Here are some men (and one planet/god) in the Bible associated with the number 666, the number of the Beast:

  • King Solomon
  • King Nebuchadnezzar
  • Nephilim giants such as Goliath and others
  • Sethur
  • Adonikam
  • The planet Saturn–yes many of the ancient Israelites worshiped the planet Saturn.

Search the Bible for yourself and see if you make the connection between the number 666 and these men, and one cosmic deity, Saturn. Many Christians who read the Bible are actually startled to learn that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, actually had competition for worship in the Old Testament. In fact, many of the ancient Israelites worshipped Saturn during the period of time spent in the wilderness with Moses. Then, when they were settled in the land they went all out worshipping this entity; when in fact this entity is associated with the Beast of Revelation and the number 6, the number of man.

Once you see the connection to the number 666 it will lead to one incredible conclusion: The Bible does indeed reveal the true identity of the Antichrist Beast! No more guessing, no more questions, you will know for sure that the Bible holds the key to his identity. Then all of that foolish speculation will finally end!

All of that I will address in my next post, until then, may God bless you!

Thanks for visiting.
