Praying to a Golden Idol by Charles Foster, 1897. Foster Bible Pictures, Public Domain

In my previous three posts, 666: Calculating the Number of the Beast Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3, we learned that when king Solomon abandoned God he became a biblical type of the Antichrist. Continuing with the story of Solomon, we see the symbolism of the number 666 revealed in his life. At the beginning of his reign, God blessed Solomon with supernatural wisdom and everything he would need to rule Israel. However, later in his life Solomon turned from the Lord God and began to serve the god of this world. Through Solomon the backslidden king of Israel, the Bible unfolds the mystery of the enigmatic symbolism of 666, the number of the Beast.

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.

Solomon became unbelievably wealthy through heavy taxation, exploitation of natural resources, the liberal use of free labor, conscripted servants, and others subject to his authority (1 Kings 4:21; 5:13-18; 9:20-21; 10:21-23 ).

Gold and other precious resources poured into Solomon’s coffers, and all of this in spite of the Law, which stated that the king was not to multiply horses, gold or silver, or wives. Solomon abandoned God for the world system, accumulating wealth and power in direct defiance of the Covenant Law and this led to his downfall (Deuteronomy:16-17).

Furthermore, he sought to secure political alliances with nearby pagan monarchs by marrying their royal daughters. (Deut. 17: 18-20). Once Solomon sought to please his foreign wives more than God, he abandoned the God of Israel, and the ungodly rites of pagan idolatry filled the ensuing spiritual vacuum. His carnal example caused the people of Israel to backslide from the temple worship of Yahweh and they fell into licentious idol worship, including ritual child sacrifice. That situation lasted centuries, and had devastating long-term consequences for the nation of Israel (1 Kings 11:1-10).

As the story of Solomon demonstrates, the Bible associates the number 666 with the wealth and power of the world system. The apostle John warns us not to love the antichrist world system. Indeed, according to John if we love the world, and all the things it offers, then the love of the Father is not in us (1 John 2:15). If you look at the verse in context, I believe it proves that loving the things of the world system will lead you away from God and into the open arms of Antichrist (1 John 2:18).

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time (1 John 2:15-18).

Those who fully embrace the antichrist world system will, in the end, reject the God of heaven and naturally accept the doctrines of Antichrist, which naturally leads one into various forms of idol worship. How many of us have read stories in the news about famous people who claim they have made a “deal with the devil,” in order to gain wealth, fame, and power? I would not take these stories lightly because the Bible provides an example of this very thing—when Satan offered Jesus the kingdoms of the world.

Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve (Matthew 4: 8-10).

Of course, Jesus rejected the offer but many famous men and women in New York and Hollywood enthusiastically embrace Satan’s proposition. He provides them many opportunities (and piles of money) to create endless hours of anti-Christian entertainment, which influences the masses to follow them down the Broadway, the Yellow Brick Road to hell (Matthew 7:13).

In the past few years, WikiLeaks revealed that several high level political figures attend ritual ceremonies (a form of witchcraft) called “spirit cooking” dinners (if you can call it that), evidently to enhance their career though occult means. Politicians, lobbyists, and other interested parties gain power and wealth as long as they submit to witchcraft ceremonies and promote antichristian policies and destructive satanic laws for the United States and the nations of the world. Religious leaders love worldly accolades too; they are especially adept as they preach and teach the doctrines of devils, in turn leading billions of unsuspecting souls down the Broadway of destruction.

Could that be why Jesus said, “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul (Matthew 16:26)?

In the future kingdom of the Beast, we see 666 linked with gold and the economic prosperity of the satanic world system. Without the Mark of the Beast, a person cannot buy or sell, or hold a job.

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 closely linked with great wealth and economic control for everyone, the great and the small—meaning, the rich and powerful, the poor, the average blue-collar worker, and the busy executive. In order to work, or buy goods and services a person must yield their soul to the image and mark of the Beast. Just as Solomon abandoned God, so a person in Babylon the Great will eventually forsake God for the gold of the Beast (see Daniel chapter 4)—the mark of his name (666), and the image, which is an occult initiation. As I demonstrate in my book, Alien Antichrist, the image of the Beast is an occult initiation that leads to Beast worship. The image imprints the mind with a living image of the Beast (possibly as a luminescent being of light, a “spirit guide”), and the mark identifies a person as the property of both the Beast and the empire of Babylon the Great.

As in Solomon’s kingdom, ritual human sacrifice will be commonplace in Babylon the Great. Solomon’s idols were Ashtoreth, Milcom, Chemosh, demon gods that demanded worshippers to commit depraved immoral acts such as ceremonial immorality and ritual human sacrifice.

Likewise, in Babylon the Great, a kingdom which requires the souls of men and the blood of the prophets and saints of Jesus (Rev. 18:13, 24), the Antichrist Beast will make war against the saints and will overcome or conquer them (Rev. 13:7; Daniel 7:21). 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.” The Bible is explicit as it describes this dark time, when the cult of the Beast will rule the world and test the saints of God (Rev.13:10, 15). The apostle Peter must have had this in mind when he said, “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you (1 Peter 4:12). The antichrist world system hates the Lord Jesus Christ and His saints (John 15:18).

The religious aspects of Babylon the Great will so permeate world culture that the spiritual powers of the Beast and the False Prophet will turn against the people of God causing them to become a sacrifice to Satan and the Beast system. This hatred of Jesus and His saints runs so deep that the blood of the saints will become a special type of spiritual communion among the Beast worshippers in Babylon the Great:

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 evil time the saints of God will overcome the Beast “by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony;” and because they love the Lord Jesus Christ more than the antichrist world system they will “love not their lives unto death” (Rev. 12:11). Because of their deep commitment to the Word of God and the Lamb, their testimony for Christ will shine for eternity like a sparkling diamond.

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (Rev. 20: 4).

Friends, do not allow the pre-Tribulation rapture to deceive you. Christians will be here to see the advent of the Antichrist Beast, and the last world empire, Babylon the Great. Read 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3, and you will see that before the gathering of the Church to Christ (the rapture), a great apostasy will appear leading to the revelation of the Man of Sin, the Antichrist Beast.

I will have more to say about 666, the number of the Beast in my next post.

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:


“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.
