  • What does the number 666 in Revelation mean ?

    Revelation 13:18

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.

    2 Chronicles 9:13

    Now the weight of gold which came to Solomon in one year was 666 talents of gold,

    Ezra 2:13

    the sons of Adonikam, 666;

    Revelation 13:16-18

    And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.

    Revelation 20:4

    Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

    If one reads the passages that include the number 666 they will see it is the number of a man, not the Devil.

    The antichrist is a man that Satan deceives into following him totally. Men have three parts to their being; the flesh, the soul, and the spirit. The flesh is our natural body of flesh. It always wants to preserve itself and fears death. This fear of death causes men to be selfish and sinful. We hang onto our life instead of giving up our lives to Jesus. Jesus said those who hang onto their life will lose it and those who give up their life will gain it. Of course we have to give up our life to Jesus, and no one else. The flesh is totally sinful ( selfish) and can not be saved. No flesh will ever enter heaven.

    The soul is our will, our intellect and our emotions. We are here to get our soul saved. No sin will enter heaven. So any lie that we believe, or any false doctrine, will have to be repented of and we will have to believe the truth instead, OR that lie will have to be cleansed out of our mind at the end of our life. Those who are saved, but believe many lies, will be like little children in heaven. Those that seek the truth their whole life ,and believe few lies, will be elders in heaven.

    Our spirits are dead until we are born again of the Spirit and His Holy Spirit enters into us. No one will enter heaven without being born of His Holy Spirit, or born again.

    So mans number is 666. His flesh does not have eternal life and so is incomplete or is a 6 instead of a 7. His soul believes lies, his will is not given to God, and he lets his emotions rule instead of The Holy Spirit. So his soul is also a 6 instead of a seven. As he follows The Holy Spirit, God will lead him into all truth and he will come closer and closer to a 7.

    Mans spirit is also incomplete and so is a 6 instead of a 7. When a man becomes born again and The Holy Spirit enters into his spirit, his spirit is then made complete and is a 7.

    So those who follow their own desires ,and so follow Satan, have the number 666. They are incomplete in every way and do not have eternal life.

    Those that repent of their sin, and confess their sin to Jesus, and then give their life to Him are born again by His Holy Spirit. Their number is 766. When they are sanctified totally by the Holy Spirit and He leads them into all truth their number becomes 776. When Jesus returns He will give those who are born again and new body and their number then will be 777. They will be complete in every way.
