WHAT IS THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST (666)?
What is the number of the beast, and most importantly, what does it really mean?
Ask almost anyone who has even a little knowledge of the Bible and they will tell you that it is 666. But is that it? Let’s find out.
Let’s backtrack to Revelation 13:16-17, where we are warned about the dangers of the mark of the beast.
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.
In verse 18 however, we are made to understand the importance of the number of the beast.
Rev 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.
So that is where we get the 666 (Six hundred threescore and six). However, those with wisdom will realize that that is too plain and basic. That requires no wisdom whatsoever, as it is laid out plainly.
If that was all there was to it, why would he start the sentence with “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast?”
It doesn’t require wisdom and understanding to figure out 666 does it? In fact, it is right there before us.
So wisdom says to me that that cannot be it.
On the contrary, the fact that it says “here is wisdom” means we have to “go under the hood of the car.” We have to really dissect what we have so wisdom reveals it to us.
Now before we begin, let me make this extremely clear. I am not saying that I do not believe in a Messiah. However, what I am saying was that there was one true Messiah who is chronicled in the Bible, a Hebrew called Yahusha HaMashiach.
All other Messiahs after him are false ones. Indeed, Yahusha had prophesied of another Messiah coming in his own name whom the world would receive (Jesus Christ) and reject him (Yahusha).
Joh 5:43 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
So my Messiah is the one YAHUsha that came in his Father’s (YAHUAH’S) name. Please get this clear before you continue.
HERE IS WISDOM
So let figure out the meaning of the number of the beast. Let us see what is the number of the beast.
Importantly, let us start with the Greek meanings of the words in the verse as it relates to the number of the beast. The “G” numbers in the verses below are the numbers from Strong’s Concordance, which gives the detailed meanings of the words.
Rev 13:18 HereG5602 isG2076 wisdom.G4678 Let him that hathG2192 understandingG3563 countG5585 theG3588 numberG706 of theG3588 beast:G2342 forG1063 it isG2076 the numberG706 of a man;G444 andG2532 hisG848 numberG706 is Six hundred threescore and six.G5516
The two words on which we will be focused are:
1. Man (G444)
2. Six hundred threescore and six (G5516)
The meaning of the word “man” as used is
From G435 and ὤψ ōps (the countenance; from G3700); manfaced, that is, a human being: – certain, man.
Total KJV occurrences: 560
Man refers to a human being. Now this might sound silly and simple, but remember: man means a human being.
SIX HUNDRED THREE SCORE AND SIX
The meaning of six hundred threescore and six is as follows:
chi xi stigma
khee xee stig’-ma
The 22nd, 14th and an obsolete letter (G4742 as a cross) of the Greek alphabet (intermediate between the 5th and 6th), used as numbers; denoting respectively 600, 60 and 6; 666 as a numeral: – six hundred threescore and six.
Total KJV occurrences: 1
It is the Greek letters chi, xi, and stigma. Now stigma is obsolete and also refers to a cross! So we have the number 666 being of a human being and a cross. Is our understanding beginning to kick in as yet?
BREAKING DOWN THE THREE LETTERS OF 666
So let us break down the 3 letters of the 666, in case you have not yet figured it out. Look at the image below; it says it all:
The number of the beast refers to a man (Christ) on a cross. This is Jesus Christ on a cross, who is revered (worshiped) by the entire religion of those who call themselves Christians! This is the image of the beast and if any man worship the image of the beast, the Bible says they are damned.
THE TRUE MESSIAH DIED ON A TREE
Now every truth is important. When I tell people the Messiah did not die on a cross, he died on a tree, it is not strange to hear it does not matter. But it does!
Acts 10:39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:
Galatians 3:13 Messiah hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
In reality, there is a huge difference between a tree and a cross. Sorry Christians, but the cross is the symbol of the beast. A tree or stauros (upright stake) is not. See how important truth is?
THE SIGN OF THE CROSS AND CHRISTIANITY
So we know that the cross is synonymous with Christianity. Indeed, the founding monarch of the religion, Emperor Constantine, claimed to have seen the sign of the cross. When he saw it, it is said he heard a voice which said “conquer in this name.” This is proudly heralded by Christians, as is the case below:
He said that about noon, when the day was already beginning to decline, he saw with his own eyes the sign of a cross of light in the heavens, above the sun, and bearing the inscription, “By this symbol you will conquer.” He was struck with amazement by the sight, and his whole army witnessed the miracle. Source.
And boy, did he conquer and kick off centuries of blood and injustice in the name of Christianity, backed by the cross and the image of a man, Jesus Christ. This continues deceptively up to this day.
Sign of the cross, a gesture of ancient Christian origin by which people bless themselves, others, or objects. St. Cyprian explained the ritual in the 3rd century by reference to Christ’s redemptive death on the cross.The sign of the cross is used throughout Christian liturgies, in moments of need or danger, at the beginning and end of prayer, and on numerous other occasions.

ALMOST 2000 YEARS PROPHECY
Another error we make is thinking that all prophecy in the book of Revelation will be fulfilled now, or recently, or at least in our lifetime. Many prophecies have already been fulfilled, but because we do not study history, we do not know.
Indeed, the time has already passed since we were not allowed to buy and sell without the mark or worshiping the image or having the number of the beast (the cross).
Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark – “If any,” observes Bishop Newton, “dissent from the stated and authorized forms (of Christianity); they are condemned and excommunicated as heretics; and in consequence of that they are no longer suffered to buy or sell; they are interdicted from traffic and commerce, and all the benefits of civil society.
Roger Hoveden relates of William the Conqueror,
that he was so dutiful to the pope that he would not permit any one in his power to buy or sell any thing whom he found disobedient to the apostolic see (The Pope).
The canon of the council of Lateran, under Pope Alexander III.,
made against the Waldenses and Albigenses, enjoins, upon pain of anathema, that no man presume to entertain or cherish them in his house or land, or exercise traffic with them (that do not follow Papal authority).
The synod of Tours, in France, under the same pope, orders,
“under the like intermination, that no man should presume to receive or assist them, no, not so much as hold any communion with them, in selling or buying; that, being deprived of the comfort of humanity they may be compelled to repent of the error of their way.”
So we see that has already been fulfilled. However, there is nothing new under the sun (Ecc 1:9-10) and everything happening now has already happened in history, so it is now set to repeat itself, possibly in another form.
So the number of the beast refers to a man on a cross, Jesus Christ, the symbol of not only the Catholic Church, but of the entire religion of Christianity.
CHRISTIANITY THE BEAST
So the Catholic Church is the beast and number of the beast 666 (chi xi stigma) points to the image of the beast, which is a man (Jesus Christ) on a cross.
However, the beast is not limited to the Catholic church. The Catholics are merely the mother church as this verse tells us:
Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
The Catholic Church, decked in scarlet and purple (Rev 17:4) is the mother of the protestant harlots.
This false religion is (by its own definition) a merger of all pagan religions into one world religion called the Universal Catholic Church which is the foundation of the Christian Religion.
This Beast is not limited to Catholicism but to all Trinity, Jesus, Sunday, Easter, Christmas, Lawless Protestant churches as well. Every religious establishment that believes in these pagan rituals are simply “protesting” Catholics known as Protestants and guilty as charged for worshipping the false messiah.
The “god” of Christianity is an “image” created based on the life of the Messiah merged with myths of pagan demi-gods and defined by the rituals of Babylon. This false image worshipped as God incarnate was named after 3 pagan demi-gods Hesus, Horus, and Krishna by the High Priest of the Sungod (Potifus Maximus) known as the Roman Emperor Constantine.
Over time it became known as Jesus (Hesus) H. (Horus) Christ (Krishna). This “image” is known by the mark X, the monogram I.H.S. (Isis, Horus, Seb), and the pictogram HES.

This is a hard pill to swallow and many will reject it, but we are not here to be loved by all. We are here to reveal the truth. Love us or hate us, we will continue to reveal the truth of scripture…not the lies of religion.Please Share!
