The book of Revelation is known as the revelation about the end of the universe. At the end times, the antichrist, dragon, beast, and prostitute will appear; and 666, one of the popular items relating to the end times, too.
He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, 17 so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. 18 This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666.
A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, 10 he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name. 12 This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus.
666 is generally known as the number of the devil. Omen, the old movie concerning the evil spirit, displays a shot in which the number 666 is engraved on the head of a newborn baby. The film maker thought that 666 was some sign that belonged to the devil.
The Bible says that whoever receives this mark will have no rest day and night and will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb, and the smoke of their torment will go up forever and ever. Nobody who believes in Jesus and reads the Bible will ever hope for this mark.
Nevertheless, the problem is that we do not know what this mark of 666 is. If we have no idea about what this mark designates; there is no way to reject it at all. Therefore, we first have to know what the mark of 666 is before we make a firm decision to reject it. A lot of scholars have made a ceaseless, but vain, effort to discover its meaning.
Based on their strenuous work, some say that 666 is Emperor Nero on the basis that his name Neron Kaisar is analyzed to derive that number according to the Gematria system. Others suggest that 666 is Adolph Hitler, or the computer chip may be 666 because it robs us of our heart.
One recent attractive assertion is that the ‘barcode’ attached to the products signifies 666. That is, at the end times, the antichrist will appear and assume the reign of government, and he will force people to bear the barcode on the foreheads or right hands, sounding like imaginary science fiction.
Those who agreed to this explanation desperately handed out flyers to passersby and placed advertisements in the newspapers as if they discovered something great. The ‘barcode hypothesis’ has been substantially spread because of the connection with the word of ‘no man might buy or sell.’
But, now the barcode hypothesis is now somehow submerged; instead Verichip is emerging as 666.
I say 666 is none of these above. After this discussion, you have to decide what the truth is concerning the true identity of 666.
First of all, 666 is not clearly defined in Scripture. Fortunately, however, Scripture records the symptoms that are manifested by those who bore the mark of 666.
So I will expose what the mark really is by describing its symptoms. This is like the case of a doctor who finds out the cause of the patient’s illness through studying his symptoms. For example, if the patient had seroperitoneum, the white of his eyes becomes yellowish, or his skin looks yellow when he scratches it, the doctor diagnoses that the patient has a liver disease. And that is right.
If a person bears the mark, he will show following three main features:
first, he can buy or sell,
second, the smoke of his torment goes up forever and ever, and
finally, it is the number of the beast, the number of a man.
I will explain one by one.
World of Buy or Sell
[Revelation 13: 16-17]
He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, 17 so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.
Without this mark of 666, nobody can buy or sell, and reversely speaking, anybody bearing this mark will buy or sell. We initially guess when we read the above passage, imagining it this way:
At the end time, the antichrist will surface. He will place 666 before us, and will say, “Hey, you! Come here. Are you Christian? You have the option to receive 666 in your right hand or forehead, or to reject it. However, if you reject it, it is okay but you can never buy or sell. Without this mark, you cannot be considered for medical care. You cannot buy any food and will finally starve to death!”
We, as pious believers, have already decided in our minds and are ready to answer boldly when such a thing happens: “I will never receive the mark of 666 even if I starve to death.” And we will say in our minds, “I love you, Lord! I really do.” We have got ourselves all psyched up for it after a long period of hard thinking.
Sorry about that, brothers and sisters! We do not need to do so because such a thing will not happen.
The word of Scripture, including Genesis to Revelation, and all the books between the two, relates to our salvation. And the salvation signifies the change of us who are of ‘this world’ into those who are of the ‘kingdom of God, which is our entering the kingdom of God. Therefore, 666 is also connected to our true salvation and entering the kingdom.
To start with the conclusion, 666 indicates a mark that is symbolic of those who are of the world; that is, those who are not saved and so remain sinful since birth. If someone bears the mark, it means that he belongs to this world, so he buys or sells.
What does “buy or sell” mean? In this instance, to buy or sell signifies the characteristics of our natural life before being born again. This sinful life in this world operates on the principle of bargaining. You will recall that Job’s righteousness was challenged by Satan’s question, “Does Job fear God for nothing?” It is revealed Job did righteous works to get a reward, which means Job was in the world of bargaining at that time.
In this world, before we act, we will first calculate what we can get in return. We live and maintain a relationship with others according to the idea that “I will do this for you, so you do something good for me in return.” As we know, all our methods of having a relationship with our neighbors are grounded on this bargaining concept. In the workplace, with friends, and between man and wife, we build our relationship on bargaining.
What will it be like if we who are living in this principle believe in Jesus? Of course, we will consider Jesus as our counterpart with whom we bargain. So if we do our best to join church activities, regularly attend the service, and give a tithe to believe in Jesus, we think that Jesus will, in return, give us heaven and bless us to make good money in this world. We diligently believe in Jesus and we think Jesus is obligated to bless us for our works (Ro 4:4). This is the perfect form of bargaining.
The Parable of the Lost Son in Luke 15 also reveals the bargaining mindset of the 666 bearer. The older son worked hard at home but he grumbled when the father killed the fattened calf for his brother who had returned. He said as below.
But he answered his father, Look! All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. 30But when this son of yours who has squandered your property with prostitutes comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!
The older son worked hard in observance of the father’s order. And in return for his hard work, he wanted to receive a young goat, minimum. This is his obvious bargaining with his father, which should not define the relationship between father and the son, who are connected with the same life. In fact, anything that is of life is not bargaining.
To think about ourselves, we believe in Jesus in the paradigm of bargaining in this world. We belong to a buy-or-sell world by birth, so we are already wearing the mark of 666, as we are. Not recognizing this, we brace ourselves by saying, “I will never receive the mark of 666 even if I am dying.” If we fail to notice it shortly, we will keep on saying the vain repetition of “I will never receive 666,” and we will finally die due to the mark. This is the second call of Jesus to wake you up.
On the other hand, they who did not receive 666 cannot buy or sell, which has a positive meaning. They represent those who are born again and so have new true life, which is different from the previous sinful life. They do not live in expectation of any benefits in return, but live as their life leads.
Unconditional love will flow out of their hearts naturally. They are the free men who have believed in Jesus in the correct way and are saved from the bargaining world into the kingdom of God. They are those who have Jesus and His Father’s name on their foreheads instead of the mark of 666 (Rev 14:1, 4-5).
In summary, we live according to the bargaining mind; it means that we already wear 666. Consequently, we have to hope to remove the 666 we have worn, rather than making an effort not to receive it. That will be the proper order.
Nevertheless, we are never able to get out of such trap by ourselves, because it is our life itself. Therefore, we need to meet Jesus who will fulfill this work for us by destroying our old self on the cross and giving us a resurrected life.
No Rest Day Nor Night
A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, 10 he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name.
Other features of those who have the mark of 666 include “the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever and they have no rest day and night.” This does not mean that they will have no rest because at the Day of Judgment God will banish them to the slavery farm to work day and night.
We are already living this life, such as having pains, having a hard job, and having no rest because each of us left Eden as Adam and entered the world of iniquity. So, in sorrow and woe we will eat all the days of our lives, and by the sweat of our face we will eat bread according to the curse sentenced to Adam. And finally, we will die in the emptiness and futility of life.
If we are unsure whether we bear 666, then won’t the aforesaid life be the life of those who have the mark of 666? Yes it is. We are born sinners, the wearers of the 666 by birth already. We have it on our right hand, which signifies all our actions, and on our forehead, which signifies all our thinking in life. The mark of 666 is the mark of sin which all those who are not yet born again have.
For the believers’ case, feeling such hardship in life somehow, we come to church. And we attend Sunday services, join church activities, pray, fast, give offerings, study the Bible, try to love and show meekness and humbleness to others.
On top of that, we have to watch out all the time so that we may not receive the mark of 666. All these works never seem easy. And the blessing and rest still looks far away. Even so, we cannot give up because we might go to hell if we not do so. In this way, to believe in Jesus is a really heavy burden, having no rest day and night.
Why must it be so hard even though we believe in Jesus? Because up to this stage our mark of sin, the 666, is not removed from us yet. Why? Because we have believed misguidedly. Jesus invites such believers again, the second call.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
Maybe we can think, “Jesus must be calling others who are lazy in faith. We are with Jesus and on His side already. Why would He call us?” Or we consider, “Yes, we still are weary and burdened while believing in Jesus. So Jesus is giving us consolation saying that He is with us always and will give us a reward and rest after the death.”
We are mistaken in this respect. If we ponder deep we cannot deny that we were following the order of Jesus by ourselves without Him, as we have never been yoked together with Him and not burdened with Him.
Therefore, Jesus is calling again those of us who are burdened. Those who can hear will follow Jesus, taking the yoke together with Him. Only this time they will know the meaning of ‘yoked together with Jesus.’ During this process, Jesus will at last destroy the evil in us on the cross. This is our death in Christ, and then, true peace and rest will be given to us.
Then I heard a voice from heaven say, Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, says the Spirit, they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.
In the text, the ‘dead who die in the Lord’ does not refer to those who believed and physically died, but those whose old self died in the Lord. ‘In the Lord’ shall mean ‘by following Jesus to the cross.’ They will be born again into the new world of rest.
The Scripture says that they have entered rest because of their works. ‘Their deeds’ does not indicate the law-based deeds, but represent ‘obedience to Jesus’ while following Him to the cross. In other words, if we obey Jesus who leads us to the crucifixion of our old self, then, immediately upon resurrection, we enter rest.
Only Jesus can do this for us. So, if we have not yet seen Jesus, our rest is far off yet. Every believer thinks he hears Jesus and obeys. But that Jesus we know is only knowledge about Him, so we need to meet an apostle, whoever he may be, who has the spirit of Christ in him. He will direct us to rest, and our marks of 666 will then be taken off.
The Number of A Man
This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666.
666 is the number of a man. The man in Scripture has two meanings. First, it represents the man who is born again in the image of God compared to the beast or fish, and second, it is the man who is fallen compared to God. The man in the current verse signifies the fallen man.
When Peter heard Jesus saying that He would go to suffer crucifixion, Peter rebuked Jesus not to do so. At this, Jesus rebuked Peter in Matthew 16:23 by saying, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.”
As we can see ‘Man’ is compared to ‘God,’ and in the context ‘man’ means ‘Satan.’ Therefore, 666 is both the number of a man and the number of Satan, and it is found in all mankind who have left God by birth. So 666 is a ‘born sinful’ mark of all humankind.
I heard a testimony of a believer. He said that he earnestly prayed to the Lord and asked what 666 would be, and the Lord moved him to read the book of John 6:66. It reads, “From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.” Yes, it is true that the mark of 666 is worn by those who left Jesus and God. The answer of the Lord he received is quite enlightening.
We left God in Eden, who is Truth, and are born into this world without Truth in us. So we live in falsehood, hypocrisy and emptiness arising from a life of non-truth. Even though we try to believe in Jesus to receive Truth we are misguided in initial faith due to the deceitfulness of sin in us. As a consequence, we have to let the smoke of our torment go up forever and ever.
We are the bearers of the mark of 666 since birth. We cannot remove this mark whatever we do (Jer 13:23). That which is of birth will only be corrected by re-birth. Jesus will remove this mark from us by making us born again.
Let us pray hard for God to send Jesus to take off our 666 mark.

I hope you, your family, and friends stay safe by taking the proper precuations as we enter in to confusing and troubling times as we watch a worldwide pandemic unfold with this Coronavirus.
Could there be something more deeper going on with all of this? Could we be seeing the signs of the times unfolding? Could this be a door of opportunity for people to open their hearts to what God has to say?
Jesus says to His disciples concerning the last days, “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:7-8).
We have been seeing a record setting amount of Earthquakes world-wide in various places, incuding places that normally do not receive Earthquakes. Now with this Coronavirus, could this be one of the pestilences that will fall upon us in the last days as spoken by Jesus? Where will it leave our economy? Did you know the Bible teaches there will be a cashless society in the last days? Will this be a major stepping stone in bringing that about?
You may have seen on NBC news just months ago concerning the implantable RFID microchip that is gaining ground in Sweden where people are getting this microchip implanted in their hand.
Would you allow a microchip to be placed inside your body that has the ability to track where you go and what you do? How about if you knew it matched perfectly with Bible prophecy where God warns us not to take it during the future reign of the Antichrist, otherwise we will receive the fullness of His wrath (Revelation 14:9-11)?
This may be the most imporant message you will read in these times…please do not ignore this! This messsage reveals what the Mark of the Beast is, and the meaning behind counting a number people have been pondering for centuries, 666. This is truly a message from God!
In the Revelation of Jesus Christ given to the apostle John, we read:
“He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or 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 it is the number of a man: His number is 666” (Revelation 13:16-18).
Revelation 13:16-18 is speaking of the end times, and this could only be speaking of a cashless money society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Why? Because we could still buy or sell without receiving the mark among one another if physical money was still currency. It logically deduces itself to this reason.
This mark could not be spiritual, because the word references two different physical locations stating one “OR” the other.
This is where it really starts to come together. It is shocking how accurate the Bible is concerning this RFID microchip. These are notes from a man named Carl Sanders who worked with a team of engineers to help develop this RFID microchip in the 1960’s.
“Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about this one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the worldâ€”a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle (a quick, convenient method that would be gradually accepted by society).
Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible (Brother Sanders was not a Christian at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.
Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand (the two places Revelation says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable places for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, crime record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this chip.
Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped design, is the â€œmarkâ€ spoken about in Revelation 13:16â€“18. The original Greek word for â€œmarkâ€ is â€œcharagma,â€ which means a â€œscratch or etching.â€ It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is â€œchi xi stigma,â€ with the last part, â€œstigma,â€ also meaning â€œto stick or prick.â€ Carl believes this is referring to a hypodermic needle when they poke into the skin to inject the microchip.”
Mr. Sanders asked a Boston Medical Center doctor what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor responded that if the microchip broke inside a human body, the lithium would cause a severe and painful wound filled with pus. This is what the book of Revelation says:
“And the first(Angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image” (Revelation 16:2).
The Bible tells us we cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast, or the number of its name. This number is identified as 666. The Bible tells us to calculate the number 666. How do we calculate 666?
This is where it gets really interesting. Calculating the number 666 has been long debated throughout the centuries, but has now been revealed in these last days by God. What I will show you confirms itself with the Bible the true meaning to calculate 666.
Throughout the Bible, God uses the number 3 as confirmation of things. Here are a few examples:
“For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” (1 John 5:7 NKJV).
“and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).
“…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).
Now what is interesting is the the mark of the beast is described in detail in three separate verses (Revelation 13:16,17,18), and each verse lists three different examples of the given topic. The last three being the number 6 being used three times in a row. This is a key point to unlocking how to calculate the number 666.
What does it mean to count? It means to add up. So how could we add up 666? Remember my previous point about God confirming in threes. So logically, what would be the best way to count the number 666? To count it equally in threes based off the number. We cannot count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also bring us back to the start. We cannot count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60, because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666. The only logical option is 6+6+6=18. What is interesting is that the verse that reveals for us to count the number itself is verse 18, being the third verse out of three verses that describe the mark of the beast. What is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3×6=18, or 6+6+6=18.
Another interesting point is the only two other combinations (making a total of three possible combinations) for placing a “+” symbol in between the 6’s are 66+6=72, and 6+66=72. Add both 72’s together and you get 144. Why the number 144 is interesting is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the Bible where the 144,000 are being described in detail:
“Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Fatherâ€™s name written on their foreheads…” (Revelation 14:1).
Now if you add up all three numbers by counting 666 by moving the “+” symbol around in all three possible combinations, it would be 72+72+18=162. What is interesting about the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name of Jesus in Greek gematria adds up to 888. The New Testament was orignally written in Greek. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb who is Jesus.
Now what is interesting about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply this same formula, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits:
“Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads” (Revelation 4:2-4).
Now if you take 8+8+8=24, and 8+88=96, and 88+8=96, you get 24+96+96=216. Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666. Remember that this was the same exact formula to get the number 162 out of counting 666 that brought about the number 888 when dividing 144,000 by 162. It is perpetual.
With using the same formula of counting by adding the “+” symbol in between the numbers, why do all these numbers relate in such a way?
The book of Revelation contains the use of the number 7 in various forms. For instance 7 seals, 7 trumpets, and 7 bowls. What is interesting about the number 37 (three sevens) is if if you divide any number that contains the same single digit three times in a row, such as 111 to 999, it comes out to the value of if you were to add all three numbers up. For example 888 divided by 37 equals 24. So 8+8+8=24. Or 666 divided by 37 equals 18. So 6+6+6=18. Could this be another way of God’s word confirming itself that the mystery behind calculating the number 666 indeed is 18?
Another interesting point to note is that if you add up all the numbers from 1 to 36, it totals 666. The number 36, as in three sixes? Could this be a hint that we should add up three sixes instead of perceiving the number as six-hundred sixty six?
So what could this mean? Well we know in this world we are identified by numbers in various forms. From our birth certificate to social security, as well as our drivers license, being identified based on a system of ruler ship. So it is possible that this RFID microchip will contain a new identification that has a total of 18 characters.
“here the wisdom is, the one having the mind let him calculate the number of the wild beast, number for “of human” it is, and the number of it 666″ (Revelation 13:1, Greek Translation).
The Greek word “anthrÅpos” being used in verse 18 where it says “of human” is the Greek strongs concordance G444. The first two definitions of the word are “a human being, whether male or female”, and, “generically, to include all human individuals”. Could the number of the beast apply to all mankind?
In the Greek (the New Testament was originally written in the Greek language), and other translations, you will notice the beast is described as an “it”, instead of “him”. The reason I’m making this point is because when a translation says “His number is 666”, this would imply a singular person, the Antichrist. But by saying “the number of it 666”, implies that it is of the beast system as a whole.
We can know the number of the beast cannot be to identify products (like a new barcode) to buy or sell because scripture says we cannot buy or sell without the number of the beast. What am I getting at? There will be instances where you could buy something someone made themselves and it wouldn’t have a store branded identification on it. But for this number to be in our chips, that is where it must be to conclude ultimately that we cannot buy or sell without having the number of the beast. As previously mentioned in Revelation 13:18, the number of the beast (6+6+6=18) is a “human number”, definition “generically, to include all human individuals”.
Could this be the name of the beast, the number of its name? The one-world beast system that is identified by 18 characters? This would fit scripture that speaks of a mark that we must have to buy or sell in our right hand or forehead, and that it also contains the number of the beast, during a future cashless money society.
Go to: http://voice-truth.com to see all the proof!
The Bible warns us in the end times that a false prophet will rise up doing miracles to deceive many to receive this mark:
“Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image” (Revelation 19:20).
No matter the cost, DO NOT TAKE IT!
“Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).
We are living in very prophetic times with major Biblical prophecies being fulfilled. When Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as capital of Israel in December of 2017, this was a big step to bring about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.
The Bible tells us that the Antichrist will seat himself in this temple:
“…and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).
In the Islamic religion, they have man called the Mahdi, known as their messiah who they are waiting to appear. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist. I myself have had strange dreams about him. He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith, but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.
So what’s in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface…
Jesus says, “And He said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).
In Hebrew, the word Barack means “lightning”, and the use of Bama (Strongs Hebrew word 1116) is used to refer to the “heights” of heaven.
The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obamaâ€™s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.
Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.
Regardless, whoever seats himself in that Third Temple in Jerusalem declaring himself to be God IS THE ANTICHRIST. DO NOT BE DECEIVED.
Why do we need Jesus?
“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
Our good works cannot save us. If we step before a judge, being guilty of a crime, the judge will not judge us by the good that we have done, but rather the crimes we have committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this type of justice, how much more a perfect, righteous, and Holy God?
God has brought down His moral law’s through the 10 commandments given to Moses at Mt. Siani. These laws were not given so we may be justified, but so that we may see the need for a savior. They are the mirror of God’s character of what He has put in each and every one of us, with our conscious bearing witness that we know that it is wrong to steal, lie, dishonor our parents, and so forth.
We can try and follow the moral laws of the 10 commandments, but we will never catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. That same word of the law given to Moses became flesh over 2000 years ago in the body of Jesus Christ. He came to be our justification by fulfilling the law, living a sinless perfect life that only God could fulfill.
The gap between us and the law can never be reconciled by our own merit, but the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we are to grab on, through faith in Him, He will pull us up being the one to justify us. As in the court of law, if someone steps in and pays your fine, even though you are guilty, the judge can do what is legal and just and let you go free. This is what Jesus did almost 2000 years ago on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled in the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood, with His last words being, “…It is finished!…” (John 19:30).
Now why did Jesus have to die for us?
Because God is Holy and just, the wrath that we deserve could not go unnoticed. Through the perfect righteousness and justice of God’s character, it must be dealt with, it must be quenched and satisfied.
For God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). This is why in Isaiah chapter 53, where it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it pleased God to crush His only begotten Son.
This is because the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. If that wrath was poured out on us, we would all die and go to hell. God created a way of escape by pouring it out on His Son who’s soul could not be left in Hades, but was raised and seated at the right hand of God in power.
So now when we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), God no longer see’s the person who deserves His wrath, but rather the glorious image of His perfect Son dwelling in us, justifying us as if we received the wrath we deserve, making a way of escape from the curse of death.
Now what we must do is repent and trust in the savior, confessing and forsaking our sins. This is not just a head knowledge of believing in Jesus, but rather receiving His words, taking them to heart. Where we no longer live to practice sin, but rather turn from our sins and practice righteousness:
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).
By doing so we may become transformed into the image of God through faith in His Son Christ Jesus Who is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who ask of Him:
“Most assuredly, I (Jesus) say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ (John 3:5-7).
“But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His” (Romans 8:9).
What are you waiting for? Our Father in heaven only wants the best for us, restoring everything this world has stolen from us. This is what it means to be “holy”. To be made whole.
He is waiting to hear from you. That God given tongue to speak language, through faith, pray to Him, ask Him to forgive you by confessing your sins and be willing to forsake them; that you accept the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the cross, and that you want His Holy Spirit living inside you transforming you into a child of God.
Jesus says, “but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him (the Holy Spirit) will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”
Did you know that Jesus spoke more about hell than anyone else, even more than He spoke about heaven?! For this very reason He came to die for us, to rescue us from this place that we deserve.
He describes hell as a real place where,
“Their worm does not die
And the fire is not quenched” (Mark 9:44).
“There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth…” (Luke 13:28).
Jesus tells us who to fear,
“And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).
“Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.’
Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’
And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.'” (Revelation 21:1-8).
Out of all the world religions, how can we be sure the Bible got it right? The scientific data has established and continues to support that the universe once had a beginning in which space, time and matter were created. Many know this as the big bang.
“The non-biblical religions tell us that god or god’s create within space and time that eternally exist. The Bible stands alone and says that time and space don’t exist until God creates the universe.” – Astronomer (Phd) Hugh Ross
The Bible not only got it right that space, time and matter all came into existence at the beginning of the universe, it also states in 7 different places that the universe is expanding thousands of years before scientists discovered these things.
Did you know that the real Noah’s Ark was discovered in the location where the Bible told us it would be, as well as having the correct dimensions? As well as proof for the destruction of Sodom Gomorrah and the Exodus account of the Red Sea crossing?
The Bible is the most translated and read book in the history of the world, full of predictive prophecies, matching what we find in the book of nature. Wouldn’t you expect God’s word to be so?

I would refuse to have RFID chip embedded in my body, not because of the Bible but because I do not want it.
The original post is saying that 666 in the Bible does not refer to things or figures in this world, such as bar code or RFID chip, etc. Basically, the Bible tell us things within us, and 666 is ‘sin’ which is the ‘separation from God.’
So as long as we have this ‘sin mark’ of 666, we are under the wrath of God.
We have to meet Jesus to remove this ‘sin mark.’ When it is done to us on our own cross, we are saved, because our anti-Christ died on that cross.
As said, 666, which is sin mark, is not something that is in this world. And we cannot fight 666 without knowing this truth.
[John 18:36 niv]
Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place.”
I found this article very interesting…please read!
Do you remember the blockbuster hit film The Matrix that was released in 1999? You may not know this, but it has deep spiritual implications concerning the times we are living in and Bible prophecy.
It tells a story of how these “agents” are trying to turn us into machines. We are closer then ever before for this to become a reality when they cause us to receive an implantable microchip in our body during a time when physical money will be no more.
You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?
“He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…
You also may have heard of the legendary number “666” that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I haven’t seen before, and I don’t think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!
…Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666″ (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).
To see all the details showing why the Bible foretold of all these things, check out this article!
GOD is sending out His end time warning:
“Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, â€œIf anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).
Seek Jesus while He may be found…God bless!
