    Solving the riddle of 666!

    One is easily thrown off track, if while reading Revelation 13:18, he/she begins by believing that this following scripture is talking about every Man alive ever since the creation of Adam; for such is not the case at all; but is talking about only one single individual. Note the words of John, and by paying close attention, you will see what I'm driving at: "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." 666! Now, the question arises, what Man is John making reference to here? This Man in question, is obviously a marked Man according to Revelation 13:17!

    Examine the wording of the Good News Bible, which is worded: "This calls for Wisdom. Whoever is intelligent can figure out the meaning of the number of the Beast, because the number stands for the name of someone. Its number is 666!"

    Armed with that information, I went into my Greek dictionary and looked for the definition of 6, and of course, learned it was a cardinal number. One of the definitions for cardinal, was a, "deep Red color," as in the robe of a Cardinal, or red bird, bearing such a name. Red of course, is, as you know, is the color of Blood. As in, as you'll see, Blood-Guilt in this case. It can also mean, "How Many," as in 1,2,3 and so on... With that in mind, consider the killing of Abel by Cain the first of the killing of the righteous ones, by the seed of satan; who, according to Jehovah's word's Blood was crying out to him from the ground for vengeance, 'like a voice crying out for revenge,' the account tells us. {Genesis 4:8-10} The account tells us that Cain was placed under a curse, because the ground had soaked up his Brother's Blood. {Genesis 4:11,12} Cain was concerned that anyone finding him would kill him; and Jehovah had told him: "If anyone kills you, seven lives will be taken in revenge." So Jehovah put a mark on Cain as a warning to anyone, not to kill him. At this point, we apply the first Six, which was the mark Cain bore. indicative of Blood-Guilt!

    Lamech who was also one of the seed of the Woman, as was Abel, hence a righteous one, as was Abel, showed how the Blood-Guilt would intensify if anyone killed him who had himself killed a Man in self defence, who had struck him. Notice the words of Lamech now: "I have killed a young Man because he struck me. Then showing how the Blood-Guilt would intensify, he said: "If Seven lives are taken for killing Cain, Seventy Seven will be taken if anyone kills me." So, ever increasing Blood-Guilt, as killings would continue.

    With those words, Lamech has shown us, that, there would be a second period of time, in which the second Six would have application, producing even heavier Blood-Guilt, because of the killing of Jehovah's Prophet's and Holy Ones. We know the Israelite Nation as a whole, had reverted over to the seed of satan the devil, and for almost six thousand years persecuted and murdered, Jehovah's Prophet's sent to them to warn them all of their wicked ways, but they refused to listen to those, Prophet's, and killed them for delivering Jehovah's warning messages. This persecution carried over to the first Century, as they murdered even the Son of God, stoned Steven to death; put James to death by the Sword, and overall, brutally persecuted all the first Century followers of the Christ, amassing heavy Blood_against themselves. Much Blood now was crying out from the ground for vengeance. The Apostle John, in his Revelation allduded, to this killing of the Prophet's and Holy Ones, in his following words, as follows: "I heard the Angel in charge of the waters, say, "The judgments you have made are just O Holy One, you who are, and who were!They poured out the Blood of God's People and of the Prophet's, and so you have given them Blood to drink. They are getting what they deserve." {Revelation 16:5,6} John continues, and while he does, he shows us by pointing to where the third and final six would come into play, in these words: "Then the Lamb broke open the fifth seal, and I saw underneath the Alter the souls of those who had been killed because they had proclaimed God's word and had been faithful in their witnessing. They shouted in a loud voice, Almighty Lord, holy and true! How long will it be until you judge the people on earth and punish them for killing us? Each of them was given a white rob, and they were told to rest a little while longer, until the complete number of other servants and believers were killed as they had been killed." {Revelation 6:9-11} At this point, John is directing our attention to the time period the sign of the coming of the Christ was in progress; at which time, the other servants and believers would be killed, as those underneath the Alter had been killed. This is the last and final Six, where massive Bloodguilt would be incurred by these murdering seed of satan the devil. Note now the words of Jesus: "Then you will be arrested and handed over to be punished and be put to death. Everyone will hate you because of me." {Matthew 24:9} This of course is when the Christ intervenes to save the lives of the chosen ones, at the height of the great tribulation. {Matthew 24:21,22} Just prior to Armageddon.

    John next shows us in pictorial language, just who it is that is responsible for this massive Blood-Guilt, for Red, as we know, is the color of Blood. Note his next description of a Red Beast: "The Spirit took control of me, and the Angel carried me to a desert. There I saw a Woman sitting on a Red Beast that had names insulting to God written all over it; the Beast had seven Heads and Ten Horns. The Woman was dressed in purple and Scarlet, and covered with Gold ornaments, precious stones, and pearls. In her hand she held a Gold cup full of obscene and filthy things, the result of her [spiritual] immorality. On her forehead was written a name, that has a secret meaning: "Great Babylon, the Mother of all {Spiritual} prostitutes and perverts in the World. And I saw that the Woman was drunk with the Blood of God's people and the Blood of those who had been killed because they had been loyal to Jesus." {Revelation 17:3-6}

    These Seven Heads, are satan's ruling dynasties of Kings significant to Bible Prophecy, in their continuing forms all down through this World's History. Notice this Beast is colored Red, or scarlet, in this scenario; indicative of Blood-Guilt. Notice too, this Woman is arrayed in scarlet color, picturing, very bright red. even more BloodGuilt; My dictionary defines, scarlet, as "Sin, or Sinful, Whorish." and notice John calls this Woman, the Mother of all Prostitutes, or pervert's in the World.'

    The Ten horns, are tied in with Daniel's Vision of a fourth and last World Power with Ten Horns in association with it. {Daniel 7:7,8} This of course would be, the British American World Powers of today. Who themselves have incurred heavy Blood-Guilt in killing 100 Million in two World Wars in our Century alone. Not to mention the Atom-Bombing of two Japanese Cities, that took the lives of 100's of thousands more; and the Blood-Guilt mounts as killings continue in the conflicts going on today at this time, around this World.

    Does the Bible aid us in any way, in showing exactly what entity this Woman might be representative of? Notice Jehovah's words to the Israelite Nation, while he was their husbandly owner: "O how I am filled up with rage against you,' is the utterance of the sovereign lord, Jehovah by your doing all these things, the Work of a Woman, a domineering prostitute." {Ezekiel 16: 30} {Read entire Chapter} So, the entire Israelite Nation in a covenant relationship with Jehovah, was a religious Organinization, as is Babylon the Great, the Mother of the harlot's. Much worse than the Israelite Nation, being the Mother of all harlot's.

    Jesus too, had laid a scathing denunciation on those early Jews, that clearly revealed, the wicked course they were all on now, when he stated the following to them: "If the Son sets you free, then you will be really free. I know you are Abraham's descendants. Yet you are trying to kill me, because you will not accept my teaching. I talk about what my Father has shown me, but you do what your Father has told you." They answered him, 'Our father is Abraham." If you really were Abraham's children," Jesus replied, 'you would do the same things that he did. All I have ever done is to tell you the truth I heard from God, yet you are trying to kill me. Abraham did nothing like this! You are doing what your Father did." "God himself is the only Father we have," they answered, "and we are his true children." Jesus said to them, "If God really was your Father, you would love me, because I came from God and now I am here. I did not come of my own authority, but he sent me. Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to listen to my message. You are the Children of your father, the devil, and you want to follow your father's desires. From the very beginning, he was a murderer and has never been on the side of truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he is only doing what is natural to him, because he is a liar and the father of all lies. But I tell the truth, and that is why you do not believe me? He who comes from God listens to God's words. You, however, are not from God, and that is why you will not listen." {John 8: 36-47}

    From that, it is clear, those Jew's had reverted over to the seed of satan the devil, and they manifested the foretold enmity between the seed of satan, and the seed of the Woman, by killing all of the Prophet's Jehovah sent to warn them away from their satanic murderous wickedness. Accruing great Bloodguilt against themselves, by the murder of Jehovah's Prophet's.{Genesis 3:15} {2 Chronicles 36:15,16} {1 Kings 19:10}

    Matthew, too, reported on this condemnation, to the heavy Blood-Guilt, they brought upon themselves, and would yet bring even heavier Blood-Guilt by the murder, and crucifiction of the very Son of God; not too mention the stoning of the Apostle Steven, and the killing of James by the sword, as well the brutal persecution of the Christian Congregation, in the first Century. Notice, now, the words of Jesus to those early Jews, identifying them as the seed of satan the devil, by these following words: "You Snakes, and Children of Snakes! How do you expect to escape from being condemned to Hell? {Ge-hen'na} And so I tell you that I will send you Prophet's and wise Men and teachers, you will kill some of them, crucify others, and whip others in the Synagogues and chase them from Town to Town. As a result, the punishment for the murder of all innocent people will fall on you, from the murder of innocent Abel to the the murder of Zechariah son of Barechiah, whom you murdered between the Temple and the Alter. I tell you indeed: the punishment for all these murders will fall on the people of this day." {Matthew 23:33-36}

    At this point, the mark 666 would not necessarily have to be a literal visible mark for all to see, as it was not, because it would be widely known, the Jews had killed the true Messiah, as it would be in the case of Cain who killed Abel. That also, at that time, would be widely known, and they would have known to kill Cain, would require the killing of seven others, in revenge. So Cain would have been given a very wide berth, and he would have been avoided like the plague. There were, at that time, witnesses that would have known about Cain's evil deed, and, no doubt, Cain's actions would have become public knowledge. Without displaying the mark, in visible fashion 666; although that would have been the mark of Cain. In similar fashion, the murder of the Christ was witnessed to by his Apostles and all of his first Century followers; so that Peter could say the following: "The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our ancestors, has given divine glory to his servant Jesus. But you handed him over to the authorities, and you rejected him in Pilate's presence, even after Pilate had decided to set him free. He was Holy and Good, but you rejected him, and instead you asked Pilate to do you the favor of turning loose a murderer. You killed the one who leads to life, but God raised him from death- and we are witnesses to this." {Acts 3:13-15}

    So, very heavy Blood-Guilt was laid at the feet of the Jewish Nation, for their murderous actions all down throughout the Centuries right up until the Christ arrived on the scene, when they murdered him, stoned Steven to death, killed James by the Sword, and brutally persecuted all of the followers of the Christ, heaping upon themselves massive Blood-Guilt for killing even the very Son Of God. Our Lord, Jesus Christ! {Matthew 27: 45-50} {Acts 7:51-60;8:1-3} {Acts 12:1-5} We see by the killing of James, the rulers too, were Blood-Guilty, of all the killing that went on then.

    If there is one thing that is not needed, that would show this mark 666 is this satanic induced hatred that is displayed by the seed of satan the devil's seed, for the seed of the Woman. That hatred alone shows they all bear the mark of Cain, 666, that mark shows the massive Blood-Guilt they have incurred, because of that foretold enmity, in the garden of Eden, when Jehovah passed sentence on satan the devil.

    One other thing, that will identify those with this mark, during the time the sign of the coming of the Christ is in progress, is the foretold hatred and murder of the followers of the Christ in these following words of Jesus: "Then People will deliver you up to tribulation and will kill you, and you will be objects of hatred by all the Nations on account of my name." {Matthew 24:9} So, from that we learn, all the Nations are marked as Blood-Guilty during this time period, because of thier murderous hatred displayed by the seed of satan the devil, for the true seed of the Woman. This hatred initiated by satan the devil who wages War with the remaining ones of the seed of the Woman, as John foretold at {Revelation 12:17}

    So, even then, those early Jews, would not show the visible mark 666, but as I said, it was public knowledge, and widely known at that time, because of those Witnesses; as it is today, because of what the Bible record reveals about the matter. Not even today, would anyone bear the visible number 666 for all to see in literal fashion. But is evidenced by the actions displayed by the seed of satan the devil, showing this great foretold hatred, towards the seed of the Woman, as foretold in Genesis 3:15.

    We will remember that Jesus, told those first Century Jews that they were held liable for all of the righteous Blood spilled on earth, and we will remember he was talking about, all those like them, that made up, "Babylon the great, the Mother of all harlot's." Although Jesus never specifically mentioned them by name, the Apostle John speaking about this World-Wide false Religious organization, that exists today, he termed, "Babylon the great, the Mother of the harlots and disgusting things of the earth," adding that, "The Woman you saw is the great City that rules over the Kings of the earth; then he tells us, "Babylon was punished because the Blood of the Prophet's and of God's People was found in the City; yes, the Blood of all those who have been killed on earth." {Revelation 17:18;18:24} Next John tells us, "And I saw the Woman was drunk with the Blood of God's people and the Blood of those who were killed because they had been loyal to Jesus." {Revelation 17:6}

    We see, in John's description, of this Woman sitting on a Red Beast, the Beast itself, being as it is Red in color, is itself Blood Guilty, while this Woman in question is scarlet in color, showing the she is even more reprehensible, more sinful, even more Blood-Guilty than this Red Beast. This Woman has been maneauvering this Red Beast to carry out her will in destroying God's people, exactly as those first Century Jews influenced the ruling authorities, in their own day, to carry out the crucifiction of the Christ, even killing those that were loyal to the Christ. {Revelation 17:3-6} Then John tells us that a voice out of heaven issues the command, to, "Come out of her my people Come out from her! You must not take part in her sins; you must not share in her punishment! For her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God remembers her wicked ways. Treat her exactly as she has treated you; pay her back double for all she has done. Fill her cup with a drink twice as strong, as the drink she prepared for you. Give her as much suffering and grief as the glory and luxery she gave herself. for she keeps telling herself: 'Here I sit a queen! I am no widow, I will never know grief!' Because of this, in one day she will be struck with plagues - disease, grief, and famine. and she will be burned with fire, because Jehovah God who judges her is mighty."

    Some will argue, that the mark of the Beast, was a literal mark, I would say to that, if it was, it had to be 666, and I'll show you why I say that. Notice Revelation 13:18 which tells us this: "This calls for 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 three-score and six." Now, the question arises, what Man is in question here, that bears this number 666? The only man I know in the Bible, who was a marked Man, was Cain, who murdered righteous Abel. Jehovah had said to Cain: ..."Therefore who-so-ever slayeth Cain, vengeance will be taken on him seven-fold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest anyone finding him should kill him." So, being as he was a marked Man, that mark had to be 666 that signified the fact that he was Blood-Guilty for killing righteous Abel.

    It's obvious, Cain could only have been killed once, and only seven would be required in vengeance, is that not, correct?

    The name of this Scarlet-Colored Wild Beast, in this instance is Cain, because they have followed in the murderous path of Cain, is that also not correct? {Jude 11}

    The number of its name would be the quantity of blood that was spilled by this Scarlet-Colored Wild-Beast, ridden by this Woman also scarlet in color. The color Scarlet picturing massive Blood-Guilt.

    It was a Man's number, because Cain was the first to kill a righteous one. In this case Abel.

    In that there are three sixes, would mark an increase in Blood-Guilt until it reached massive maximum proportions. In the last days.

    So, that mark on Cain that was to serve as a warning, was a warning to all Mankind! You kill someone, seven others would be required to exact vengeance. Not only to those of Cain's own day. Whose murder of Abel would have been widely known. They would have known, that to kill Cain 7 others would be required, to exact vengeance. for his killing. Hence the reason for the increase in Blood-guilt amounting to 666. Which is massive Blood-Guilt, in quantity. With three sixes factored all together, being as they are an expoential number; no one could know exactly how many had beed killed, throughout this World's history. But however many, their voices, like Abel's will be crying out from the ground for vengeance. {Genesis 4:10}

    Neither this Scarlet-Colored Wild Beast, nor any of its supporters today bear a literal Phsyical mark; nor does the Woman attired in Scarlet, nor any of her adherants: But their Blood-Guilt that they are held guilty of certainly marks them for all to see, as would have been the case with Cain. The pages of this Worlds' History are literally drenched in Blood, for all to read today. Not too mention what the Bible record reveals, about Blood-Guilt.

    It was as Jehovah had said to Noah after the flood; "Anyone shedding Man's Blood, by Man will his own blood be shed." {Genesis 9:6} So there was a definite mark alright, but not a literal mark , as Jehovah through the pen of Jeremiah, makes that very clear, in these following words: "Also in your skirts there have been found the Blood-Marks of the souls of the innocent poor ones. Not in the act of breaking in have I found them, but they are upon all these." {Jeremaiah 2:34}

    Under the old Law, was a thief to be killed in the act of breaking in, gets struck and dies, there was no blood-guilt; that is, if it was dark, but if 'the Sun had shone forth upon him,' and he was killed, there was blood-guilt exacted for his death.' [Exodus 22:2} They would become Blood-Guilty for even that kind of killing.

    Jehovah made it very clear, by telling them: "In your skirts, there have been found the Blood marks of the innocent poor ones; they were wanton deliberate murderers. With heavy Blood-Guilt upon them. It wasn't just done in the act of breaking in, in the dark. it was wilfull deliberate murder, on their parts.

    In saying,'In your skirt's,' Jehovah was making reference to the entire Israelite Nation who had reverted over to the seed of satan the devil, as was Cain. The first human to murder a righteous one, and become, for that murder, Blood-Guilty. Such as Abel was, a righteous one, the seed of the Woman. {Genesis 3:15} Notice, now, what Jesus had said to those early Jews: "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the killer of the Prophet's and stoner of those sent forth to her, -- how often I wanted to gather your Children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks together under her wings!" But you people did not want it.' ... {Matthew 23:37-39} Then, he continues: "Serpent's, offspiring of Vipers, how are you to flee from the judgment of Ge-hen'na? For this reason here I am sending forth to you Prophets and Wise Men and public instructors. Some of them you will kill and impale, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from City to City, that there may come upon you all the Righteous Blood spilled on earth, from the Blood of righteous Abel to the Blood of Zechariah son of Barachiah, whom you murdered between the sanctury and the alter." {Matthew 23:33-36}

    We know from Peters words at 1 Peter 4:17, Judgment came on the house of God in 70 AD, when the Roman General Titus attacked Jerusalem tearing up Ten Miles of surrounding forest land, and building a wall of pointed stakes all around the City of Jerusalem; killing 1 Million Jews and leading the remainder off captive. When he was through with his attack there was, 'not a stone left upon a stone,' of the Jewish Temple exactly as Jesus had foretold; it was fulfilled to the letter. {Luke 19:41-44} It was as Jesus foretold: "All these things will come upon this generation." {Matthew 23:36} So vengeance was taken by Jehovah on those early Jews in 70AD to atone for all of the Blood-guilt, for the killing of all of his righteous ones. All the righteous Blood spilled on earth came upon them in that fateful year. Recorded secular History attests to that, as a fact. We need no literal number inscribed on anyone, to know all about the record of Blood-Guilt established by the Jewish Nation; all down through tbis World's recorded History. That secular record does not stand alone, for it is also indelibly inscribed on every page of the Bible. All one needs do, is read, and heed.

    One notices in John's account of this seven headed Scarlet Colored, Blood-Guilty Wild Beast, this Woman also attired in Scarlet, is, 'drunk with the Blood of the Holy Ones and the Blood of the Witnesses of Jesus; John mentions these ones again at Revelation 6:9-11 in these following words: ... "I saw underneath the Alter the souls of those slaughtered because of the word of God and because of the witness work they used to have, and they cried with a loud voice, saying: "Until when Sovereign Lord holy and true, are you refraining from judging and avenging our Blood upon those who dwell on the earth?" And a White robe was given to each of them; and they were told to rest a little while longer, until the number was filled also of their fellow slaves and their Brother's who were about to be killed as they also had been." {Revelation 6:9-11} So, their very silence alone on this matter, has brought massive Blood-Guilt against them. never mind their involvement, in the two massive slaughters of our own Century in the form of World-War one and two, and all of the ensuing wars that followed. Right down to this very moment in time.

    Jesus foretold, that this final killing, of these 'fellow slaves,' and 'their Brothers,' would be taking place somewhere near the height, or zenith of the great tribulation, at which point, 'those days would be cut short, to save the lives of the remaining chosen ones.' When the Christ finally intervenes, and draws a halt to this murdering, World-Wide, Blood-lusting, Blood-Guilty Political Regime's, and it's whorish Religious Woman seated on its back. Who is none other, in our own day, than the entire realm of Religious Blood-Guilty Christendom. {Matthew 24:9,21,22} Who both bear the mark 666! But this is not a literal mark, it is a fact of this World's Blood-Guilty History. Every Politician on this earth; their supporters, any and every follower of this World's Religions bear the mark, 666! Because of the heavy Blood-Guilt that they have incurred; more notebly, for the Wars of our Century alone, where 100 Million voices are crying out from the ground for vengeance.

    That vengeance will come, when Jehovah, 'makes an extermination, indeed a terrible one, of all the inhabitants of the earth.' As foretold by Zephania the Prophet. {1:14-18}

    The pages of this World's history, are marked with the number of the bloodguilt of Cain, 666! Is it not also true, that every year, they dawn the Red Poppy? Does not that Red Poppy signify their Blood-Guilt; the mark of Cain? Does not all of this solve the riddle of 666? Does not religious Christendom profess to be the one true religion, entrusted with delivering the message of the Bible? Have they not failed to deliver the message of the Bible? To take seriously, Jehovah's own words to them, as follows: "When I say to someone wicked, O wicked one you will positively die!" but you do not speak out to warn the wicked one from his way, he himself as a wicked one will die in his own error but his blood I shall ask back at your own hand." {Ezekiel 33:7-9}

    Their Blood-Guilt is heavy, and Jehovah requires vengeance be taken for it at Armageddon, now,very near!

  • wobble

    Problem is Wanna. the earliest reliable manuscript has 616, not 666, so kinda makes your post above redundant.

  • cameo-d

    : "O how I am filled up with rage against you,' is the utterance of the sovereign lord, Jehovah by your doing all these things, the Work of a Woman, a domineering prostitute."

    Doesn't WatchTower blatently call themselves "gods womanly organization"? Seems they have flaunted their iniquities in the face of their converts.

  • PSacramento

    Wooble is correct and add to that, John was addressing his letter to the people of HIS time and it is pretty much agreeded on by the majority fo scholars that the beast referred to Nero and the myth of his return that was propogated by the imperical cult(s).
