Let’s jump right into this topic. Here’s something to consider when looking at the Book of Revelation in the New Testament Bible … the last book:

“In this case wisdom is needed: Let the person who has understanding calculate the total number of the beast, because it is a human total number, and the sum of the number is 666.”

~Revelation 13:18 – International Standard Version

Now, know this: all Living organisms Must contain Carbon to exist on Earth as Physical Life. In other words, carbon forms the backbone of biology for all life on this Earth. These are the building blocks of Life. According to your DNA, you are either a Carbon being, or you a Carbon-based being. Either way you are carbon, and carbon is 666.

6 electrons

6 Protons (atomic number)

6 Neutrons

Also keep in mind, 666 equates to the number of the sun. 6 am. sunrise. 6 hours later noon, 6 hours later at 6 pm its sunset. A complete cycle.

The ancient Babylonians using the sexagesimal (base-60) number system from which comes 60 minutes in an hour, 60 seconds in a minute, 360 (60×6) degrees in a circle, and 60 degrees in each angle of an equilateral triangle, etc. 360 divided by 10 = 36 and 6 x 6 = 36. Babylon worshiped gods that were associated with the sun, moon, planets, and stars involved with the study and practice of astrology.

Babylonians were the principle developers of astrology as we know it today, and the pagan priests wore amulets called “Sigilla Solis” or “Sun Seal” which symbolized 36 constellations. In this system of worship, they had 36 supreme gods plus the god associated with the sun, which they believed to be the father of all the other gods and so, as such, was supreme over ALL. They believed that numbers had power over the gods they worshiped, so they assigned numbers to their gods so that they could have power over them.

They did this by counting their gods and assigning a consecutive number to each of the 36 lesser supreme gods, and then added up these numbers (from 1 to 36) and assigned the sum total to the sun god. If you have not guessed by now, the sum of the numbers from 1 to 36 totals 666. The calculation is below:

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 + 12 + 13 + 14 + 15 + 16 + 17 + 18 + 19 + 20 + 21 + 22 + 23 + 24 + 25 + 26 + 27 + 28 + 29 + 30 + 31 + 32 + 33 + 34 + 35 + 36 = 666

In numerology (gematria), the number of the physical world is six, the number of the spiritual world is eight. 600 is the number of “cosmos”, while 800 is the number of the “lord of the cosmos.” Similarly, the sacred number of Jesus, 888, symbolizing the Spiritual Sun, is contrasted with the number 666, symbolizing that of the physical sun.

In another view, the author of the Book of Revelation was using numbers to send his early Christian readers a coded message. Turns out, what we see in the The Book of Revelation where the writer refers to 666 in an apocalyptic vision isn’t entirely what we think of today. Put simply, 666 in this case, is being used as a code. A sort of riddle. This text was originally written in ancient Greek, where numbers are written as letters, as they are in Hebrew – the other main language of the original Biblical texts.

In this scenario, a held belief is that if you translate the Hebrew spelling of 666, you actually spell out “Neron Kesar” – the Hebrew spelling of Nero Caesar. So, now we know a much deeper significance of this powerful number, and how it can be applied in many different ways.

In the Textus Receptus manuscripts of the New Testament, the Book of Revelation (13:17–18) cryptically asserts 666 to be “man’s number” or “the number of a man” (depending on how the text is translated) associated with the Beast, an antagonistic creature.

“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

~Revelation 13:18 – KJV

There is much more to the number 666 – and the veiled message – than just a satan, anti-Christ, or devil. In fact, we are told directly in Revelation, it is the “number of man.”

Just a thought …
