666/616 - And Chip Implants?
This is one of the more intriguing things found in book of Revelation written by the Apostle John. If you Google search this topic, all kinds of sites will pop up with a million different ideas of what it might mean.
Notice the title of this article is 666/616. The reasons for this is some older manuscripts actually contain the number 616 rather than the 666. This doesn't make it necessarily more accurate, but it is indeed possible.
The number 616 can be found in the Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus (5th Century) in Paris, a Latin version of Tyconius, and an Armenian manuscript.
Papyrus 115 uses just 3 letters to contain a value adding up to 616. This is the oldest known fragment of Revelation. If Gematria is implied and this is the oldest rendering, were early writers into the Occult as some view the process of Gematria? If the bible is considered infallible then it would appear this isn't an occult practice, but something readers of that time were familiar with.
Revelation 13:17 And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name.
Revelation 13:17 (BGT) καὶ ἵνα μή τις δύνηται ἀγοράσαι ἢ πωλῆσαι εἰ μὴ ὁ ἔχων τὸ χάραγμα τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ θηρίου ἢ τὸν ἀριθμὸν τοῦ ὀνόματος αὐτοῦ.
Revelation 13:18 Wisdom is needed to understand this. Let the one who has understanding solve the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 666. – NLT
Here is the Textus Receptus rendering of this verse using 3 letters indicating a Gematria value of "Six Hundred Sixty Six" not 6-6-6.
Revelation 13:18 Ὧδε ἡ σοφία ἐστίν. ὁ ἔχων νοῦν ψηφισάτω τὸν ἀριθμὸν τοῦ θηρίου, ἀριθμὸς γὰρ ἀνθρώπου ἐστίν, καὶ ὁ ἀριθμὸς αὐτοῦ χξς
The last letter was the Digamma ς which was used for the number "6". The Digamma is no longer part of the Greek language, thus it's not found on my Greek Gematria Calculator for the value of 6. This letter is now part of Sigma with a Gematria value of 200.
Below is an example of the Greek number six hundred sixy and six written out. I would also like to make clear after arguing with a person that this is not 6-6-6. This is Six Hundred Sixty and Six. The writers make this very clear they are not indicating three seperate sixes. If they were, they wouldn't spell out the full number nor use Gematria with three seperate letters to achieve this total.
Revelation 13:18 (BGT) Ὧδε ἡ σοφία ἐστίν. ὁ ἔχων νοῦν ψηφισάτω τὸν ἀριθμὸν τοῦ θηρίου, ἀριθμὸς γὰρ ἀνθρώπου ἐστίν, καὶ ὁ ἀριθμὸς αὐτοῦ ἑξακόσιοι ἑξήκοντα ἕξ.
εξακοσιοι = Six Hundered or εξακοσια = Six Hundered (Different Spellings from different ancient manuscripts)
εξηκοντα = Sixty
εξ = Six
In case anyone is interested in the gematria values of these words here they are using both spelling cases from above:
εξακοσιοι εξηκοντα εξ = 1025 (5x5x41)
εξακοσια εξηκοντα εξ = 946 (2x11x43)
(Mat 24:15-16 NAS) "Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains;
(Dan 12:11-12 NAS) "And from the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. 12 "How blessed is he who keeps waiting and attains to the 1,335 days!
This is my understanding of The Abomination. There is no Temple (Physical Temple in Jerusalem) where there will be sacrifices and a literal Abomination will be put there. Let's read a few scriptures.
(Joh 2:19 NAS) "Jesus answered and said to them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."
(1Co 6:19-20 NAS) "Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.
You are the Temple, therefore the Abomination of Desolation is the Mark of the Beast on your forehead or right hand as it states in Revelation.
(Rev 13:16 NAS) 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,
There won't be a literal Statue or whatever people are anticipating in a proposed third temple built during the time of the Anti-Christ.
What does it mean by Daily/Regular Sacrifice?
(Mat 10:38-40 NAS) "And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. 39 "He who has found his life shall lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake shall find it. 40 "He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.
My theory is when Aliens (Serpent/Watchers/Satans) arrive on Earth people will fall away from religions as well as Christianity and Jesus, thus persons whom once believed and followed his teachings will no longer be carrying that cross so to speak or sacrifice within their lives.
People will begin to follow what the "Aliens" are saying and teaching because they actually believe these beings are some kind of advanced civilization that can help people and the Earth. I'm here to let the cat out of the bag they are not extraterrestrial beings. They are what the bible has always called "Serpent" and "Satans".
Anybody who hasn't read this will probably fall victim to this. They will tear religion apart with their deception. They have been mixing with mankind genetically as well and you can read that in my Nephelim (LINK) article.
(Dan 12:12 NAS) How blessed is he who keeps waiting and attains to the 1,335 days!
This means those that don't take this Mark of the Beast (The Abomination) will be blessed by holding out 45 days later to 1,335 Days. What awaits those whom wait?
A theory is from a person named "Ron Wyatt" LINK. He claims to have found the Ark of the Covenant on 1-6-1982. He has since died.
Revealing the Ark could take place at the 1,335 Day. Thus you are blessed holding out 45 days until this happens by refusing to take the Mark of the Beast getting a boost knowing you were correct to have believed in God all along. Here is his final interview discussing the Mark of the Beast. (LINK)
Here are a couple of interesting finds using Greek Gematria that total to 666
meaning "the act of giving up" total Gematria = 666
meaning "Riches, Means, Wealth" total Gematria = 666
It's interesting that those that take the mark of the beast do in fact surrender and give up and we know how hard it is for a rich person to make it to heaven don't we. Matthew 19:24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Job 18:3 Wherefore are we counted as beasts, and reputed vile in your sight?
"counted as beasts"
1 Chronicles 23:24 These were the sons of Levi by their fathers' houses -- the heads of the fathers' houses as they were counted individually by the number of their names, who did the work for the service of the house of the LORD, from the age of twenty years and above.
"counted individually by the number of their names"
Daniel 4:16 Let his heart be changed from man's, and let a beast's heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him.
"a beast's heart be given unto him"
Jeremiah 31:27 " Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, that I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man and the seed of beast.
"and the seed of beast"
Nero was the Roman Emperor who persecuted the Christians. Some say he was the person whom John was referring to in Revelation. I don't recall anything in the history books about him enforcing a mark of the beast.
The actual Greek rending of this name doesn’t even come close to 666. If we use Hebrew then it depends on how we spell out his name. This is the correct way to spell Caesar Neron as written in Greek.
Καισαρι Νερωνι (Greek Gematria)
Here is the Hebrew spelling of the name:
There are Final Letters such as Nun, Mem, Tzadik, Peh, and Caph. Some choose to use the Sofit values of those letters and others don't. Early Hebrew didn't have final letters as this is more modern Hebrew dating back to about the 2nd century CE.
Revelation was written in Greek therfore it would seem strange to use a Hebrew calculation to come up with the value of 666/616 for his name.
One missed detail with the Nero scenario is the timing of his rule with the authorship of Revelation by John.
Nero ruled Rome from 54-68 A.D. Revelation's estimated authorship is upwards of 20 or more years beyond his rule. Now if Revelation is thought to be prophetic it wouldn't make sense claiming Nero as the Antichrist since he had already died many years before. Therefore don’t push aside the idea we have another one coming whom will have a much greater influence then a Roman Emperor who lived 2,000 years ago.
Rev 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive [his] mark in his forehead, or in his hand, -KJV
Another case in point:
The word for "in" as used in that verse "in his hand a sharp sickle" is using another Greek word εν Strong's # 01722 - Meaning in, by, with etc. - Again this of course is not implying within his hand.
This still wouldn't make you an enemy of God. You would have to take some oath and by taking that oath you thereby acknowledge this Beast over God himself. If this Chip implant required you to sign or swear that by taking it you hereby say there is no God other then the one who gave you this device then yes that would work as a "Beast Mark", however you see a chip isn't needed to do that.
This therefore makes the chip theory harder to pursue as this is not in someone but upon them. (Symbolism)
I haven't browsed all the translations of those verses, but the ESV and NJB use "On" rather than "in" as they have translated this properly.
Here is a similar sample from the book of Ezekiel
Ezekiel 9:3 And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer's inkhorn by his side;
Ezekiel 9:4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. -KJV
Once again in the LXX here the Greek word for "upon" is επι
For the Hebrew verse Ezekiel 9:4 the words are:
Meaning a Mark upon the Forehead
The Hebrew word for upon is על
WWW. = 666?
This is another amusing thing I've seen on the internet. The Hebrew Vav ו has a numeric value of 6 in Hebrew Gematria. It produces the Wha sound, however to correctly write out 666 in Hebrew it would look like "תרסו =400+200+60+6 = 666".
Using three seperate sixes is incorrect when they are trying to say "WWW" = "6-6-6". That actually totals to 18 not six hundred sixty six.
