Rev 13:18. 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.
What does the number 666 mean from the Bible, and the Bible only?
I have read and studied many interpretations of this text, for example 666 means it is the pope’s tiara that sits on his head. The numerical letters in Latin “Vicarius Filii Dei” on the pope´s tiara add up to 666. The Latin words interpreted mean the vicar of the son of God. I have also seen Ellen G. Whites name from my own church denomination to be interpreted to mean 666. But all these explanations do not come from the Bible and Bible only interpretation. They are only speculation or eisegesis.
We really do not need the number, because when we study Rev 13:1-10 we know already that the beast from the sea is the Roman Catholic Church system or organization. When we study Rev 13:1-18 we can also see the subject of the chapter is worship. Who shall we worship? Which church denomination shall we worship God through in the New World Order? Here is a summary of the chapter involving worship:
Rev 13:3. All the world marveled and followed the beast.
Rev 13:4. The dragon gave authority to the beast and they worshiped the beast.
Rev 13:5. He was given authority for 42 months (1260 prophetical days=1260 years=538-1798 A.D. during the Middle Ages).
Rev 13:6. The beast blasphemed God, his name and his tabernacle in heaven.
Rev 13:7. The beast made war with the saints.
Rev 13:8. All who would dwell on the earth will worship the beast whose names have not been written in the book of life.
Rev 13:12. The second beast (protestant USA) causes those who dwell on the earth to worship the first beast (Roman Catholic Church system).
Rev 13:14. The first beast deceives those who dwell on the earth – – – telling them to make an image to the beast (the sea beast).
Rev 13:15. And cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
Rev 13:16. He causes, both small and great – – – to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads.
Rev 13:17. No one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or name of the beast or the number of his name.
OK! So what does the number 666 mean from the Bible?
When using the method “let the Bible itself interpret the Bible,” we find the only other text in the whole of the Bible that states the numerical figures 666, is in the Old Testament: 1 Kings 10:14. The weight of gold that came to Solomon yearly, was six hundred and sixty-six talents of gold.
How much is one talent of gold worth?
The Hebrew talent in conformity with the Canaanite talent consisted of only 3,000 shekels. Its weight was 34.2 kilograms or 75.39 lbs[iv].
How many kilograms or lbs. of gold did Solomon receive each year?
666 x 34.2 kilograms =22,777 kilograms
666 x 75.39 lbs. = 50,209 lbs, or 22,415 tons of gold.
Gold price average is $1,225 an oz.
50,209 lbs. x 16 oz. = 803,344 oz.
803,344 x $1,225 = $984,096,400 tax free each year.
In 1 kings 11:42 it says that Solomon reigned for 40 years.
40 years x 22,415 tons of gold = 896,600 tons of gold. This is what King Solomon received in his lifetime.
My point with these calculations is, king Solomon was the most richest religious man in the then known world at his time.
When transferring this data over to this present age of 2016, we can ask ourselves, which religious institution is the most wealthiest or richest in the world? The answer is the Roman Catholic Church system. They have a yearly income of $14,000,000,000 tax-free.
The Roman Catholic Church system has 60,350 tons of gold in their vaults around the world. No one knows exactly how much gold the Roman Catholic Church system has stored in its Vatican vaults and other vaults around the world over the many years since it has existed. However, Avro Manhattan who is an expert on the knowledge of the Roman Catholic Church, says that this church is the wealthiest, richest and most powerful institution in the world.
The Roman Catholic Church plundered gold from Europe through the Nazis during the II World War. This is a claim made by Alberto Rivera an ex-Jesuit priest from the Roman Catholic church:
The Roman Catholic Church system has investments in the world’s largest banks and concerns like companies on Wall Street. They have relations with the Mafia and drug barons all over the world[v]. It is not the Federal Reserve Bank who controls the interest rates around the world, but it is the Roman Catholic Church system who controls the Federal Reserve bank, because they have the most gold invested in that bank and the greatest “say so” in what should be done with the global economy.
Having said all this, what is my point? What relationship is the Roman Catholic Church system to King Solomon? My point is this, that there is a large striking parallel between the two.
1 Kgs 10:14. The weight of gold that came to Solomon yearly was 666 talents of gold. (King Solomon was the most wealthiest religious king in the then known world of his time. 1 Kgs 10:23).
1 Kgs 8:54. And so it was, when Solomon had finished praying all this prayer and supplication to the Lord, that he arose from before the altar of the Lord, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven. (King Solomon was deeply religious and had a personal faith in God).
1 Kgs 9:1-9. The Lord appeared to Solomon. Solomon was a prophet like his father King David. Solomon wrote “The Book of Proverbs” and “The Book of Ecclesiastes.”
1 Kgs 11:1-10. King Solomon had seven hundred foreign wives that turned his heart from God and he ended up worshipping other gods. Solomon stopped worshipping the creator God and keeping his commandments for many years of his reign.
Like King Solomon, the Roman Catholic Church began with a strong belief and faith in God and his commandments. Paul writes in Rom 1:7. To all who are in Rome, beloved of God called to be saints. The church in Rome began with true Christian and sincere believers in Christ. However, over the years this church has accepted many other gods and beliefs in false doctrines, which are not Biblical.
These are some of the doctrines the Roman Catholic church have incorporated into their beliefs.
- The papacy have changed God´s ten commandments from the original.
- The papacy have changed the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday.
- The papacy worship statues and saints.
- The papacy installed the sale of indulgences.
- The papacy believe in purgatory.
- The papacy believe in the doctrine of Hell.
- The papacy installed the practice of priests and prelates can only forgive sins.
- The pope receives homage and worship which is due to God alone.
All these doctrines go against the teachings of the Bible and Bible only.
The pope’s position states that he is vice regent on earth and the only mediator between God and man. On top of all this, the papacy has killed over 50 million men, women and children members of their church during the Middle Ages.
Why? Because they refused to believe in the papacy and they protested against the pope and became protestant believers. They believed in the Bible and Bible only for their faith.
Rev 13:18. The number of the beast is the number of a man. (That “man” is from the Bible and is King Solomon. So there is a parallel between the life of King Solomon and the history of the Roman Catholic Church which we cannot ignore).
The number 666 means in prophecy that this institution is the most wealthiest and richest in the world. The Roman Catholic papal system with all its wealth, will TRY TO control all the worlds financial and banking systems, with the aim of establishing the Holy Roman Empire throughout the world. This will be the New World Order with the pope at the head of it. This is what the numbers 666 mean in Rev 13:18.
The question arises, how can a Protestant nation like the USA unite with the papacy or the Roman Catholic Church system in the future?
Amschel Rothschild’s famous quote states: “Give me control of a nation’s money supply, and I care not who makes its laws.” www.trade2win.com
The Federal Bank is situated in the USA? Every time the Federal Reserve Bank ups the interest rates, the banks of the world follow suit and the world’s population will head for an economic recession. When the Federal Reserve Bank decreases interest rates, then the banks of the world follow suit and the world’s population are headed for good times with more prospects for jobs and a better economy.
This process of increasing and decreasing interest rates, only increases the Federal Reserve and the world banks income. They buy stocks and shares when interest rates are at their lowest and sell them when they are at their highest. This process occurs on a 5-10 year cycle and takes advantage of the poor living in the world. This is capitalism at its best, which most countries use worldwide.
Who is one of the chief investors in the Federal Reserve Bank? The papacy, at the Vatican, representing the Roman Catholic Church system. In addition to this, at the present time of writing July 2016, the USA is in serious debt up to a figure of around 19 trillion American dollars. And no president can control this debt. A few have tried like the Kennedy brothers: John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy. They tried to stop loans from the Federal Reserve Bank to the US nation. How? By changing the dollar standard from paper money to silver. John F. Kennedy wrote a decree on the 4 June, 1963, No. 11110 to stop all loans from the Federal Reserve Bank in the USA. As a result John F. Kennedy was assassinated or murdered on the 22 Nov, 1963.
Who assassinated John F. Kennedy and why?
If one has access to www.youtube.com, write down the assassination of John F. Kennedy and see the news film clip of the shooting. One can see with your own eyes, without a doubt, that the head of the protection police or bodyguards is waiving to the other body guards to stay back, where as they should have been surrounding the presidents car. This is definitely a sign that the head of the bodyguards and group of bodyguards knew what was going to happen. After a few seconds went by, John F. Kennedy was shot in the head.
This is no conspiracy theory friends. This is a news clip which was shown on every television throughout the world. This was planned murder by the Jesuits in the Roman Catholic Church system. And John F. Kennedy was a member of the Roman Catholic Church at that. It seems that no one can stand in the way of the Jesuits in the Roman Catholic Church system, who want complete control of the US Federal Reserve Bank, US dollar standard and influence over the world´s financial system. So the Bible is right in the prophecy of Rev 13:18 that the Roman Catholic Church system is the most wealthiest religious organization in the world. And no one can change that, only God.
When John F. Kennedy´s brother Robert Kennedy was elected president, he tried to do the same and change the dollar standard into silver. He was also assassinated and murdered.
Who did Abraham Lincoln say, was responsible for the American civil war?
It is true what president Abraham Lincoln said before he was assassinated. This quotation is taken from the book “Fifty Years in the Church of Rome” by Charles Chinquy and is cited in http://mygospelworkers.org/mgwministry/i-see-a-very-dark-cloud-on-our-horizon-an
This quotation is referring to the American civil war between north and south over slave trading.
“The common people see and hear the big, noisy wheels of the Southern Confederacy´s cars; they call Jeff Davies, Lee, Toombs, Beauregard, Semmes, etc., and they honestly think that they are the motive power, the first cause of troubles. But this is a mistake. The true motive power is secreted behind the thick walls of the Vatican, the colleges and schools of the Jesuits, the converts of the nuns, and the confessional boxes of Rome. There is a fact which is too much ignored by the American people, and which I am acquainted only since I became president, it is that the best, the leading families of the South have received their education in great part, if not whole, from the Jesuits and the nuns. Hence, those degrading principles of slavery, pride, cruelty, which are as second nature among so many of those people. – – -.
You do not ignore that the first settlers of Louisiana, Florida, New Mexico, Texas, South California and Missouri were Roman Catholics and that their first teacher were Jesuits. – – -. Unfortunately, the Jesuits and the nuns have in great part remained the teachers of those people since. They have continued in a silent, but most efficacious way, to spread their hatred against our institutions, our laws, our schools, our rights and our liberties in such a way that this terrible conflict became unavoidable between the North and the South. As I told you before, it is popery that we owe this terrible civil war.”
“I do not pretend to be a prophet. But though not a prophet, I see a very dark cloud on our horizon. And that dark cloud is coming from Rome. It is filled with tears of blood. It will rise and increase until its flanks will be torn by a flash of lightening, followed by a fearful peal of thunder. Then a cyclone such as the world has never seen, will pass over this country, spreading ruin and desolation from north to south. After it is over, there will long days of peace and prosperity: for popery, with its Jesuits and merciless Inquisition, will have been for ever swept away from our country.”
When will popery and the Jesuits finally be eliminated? This will occur at Christ´s Second Coming according to the book of Daniel.
According to Abraham Lincoln, the Jesuits were not a fictitious group operating within the bounds of the Vatican trying to overtake the world in some conspiracy theory. They were and are an active political force trying to undermine the USA and the world.
