Number of the Beast
"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." - Rev. 13:18
We are told in Revelation that number of the beast is 666, which is translated from the Greek χ (chi), ξ (xi), ς (sigma),
χ (= 600) + ξ (= 60) + ς (= 6). We're told it's a number of a man, it must be counted, and it takes insight. Gematria is a coding system that assigns numeric value to words, names and phrases. Assigning increments of 9, the bIblical number of finality, to every letter.. A=9, B=18, C=27, etc, we can count the number of the beast. Using this calculation of counting the letters, Lucifer equals 666. Other words and phrases which equal this number.. occult, Jewish, masonic, god of evil, and cross. And there's one more name, the which the false messiah will use when he arrives... Jesus.
"I have come in my Father's name [YAH-shua], and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name [Jesus}, him ye will receive." - John 5:43
