    A literal reading of Rev 13:18 from the original Greek Bible Hub interlinear says:

    Here the wisdom is: the one having understanding, let him count the number of the beast. Indeed a man’s it is and the number of it six hundred sixty six.

    There is a certain well-known world leader who will be of a notable age (in months) tomorrow. Just count the months from his birth until February 4, 2017.

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. [Psalm 23:4]

    I guess it’s against the rules here to name that well-known leader… :yes:

    Leaving today or tomorrow or even at halftime on Sunday would be WONDERFUL!

    (Maybe that’s what was meant by the clue “…half a time.” )

    Maranatha!

    I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end He will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; I myself will see Him with my own eyes -- I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me! Job19:25-27

    Here is my take on that…

    777 is a representation of the Trinity. The number 7 also represents divine perfection. In contrast, 666 represents the evil Trinity, also mentioned in Revelation 16 as Satan, the AC, and the FP. The number 6 represents man.

    I don’t know exactly how the 666 will manifest, but it represents man attempting to usurp and become greater than God. This is evidenced by the Mark being introduced in the second half of the Week, after the Abomination of Desolation which is:

    II Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

    Daniel 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

    Taking the Mark is representative of man attempting to usurp God. It’s the ultimate antichrist pledge of allegiance, not just a pledge of allegiance to the Antichrist. Is it the number of a “specific” man? Likely not. It’s a number which represents man’s intentions of becoming greater than God – just like the AC at the midpoint of the Week. Likely the Mark doesn’t represent a specific man, but a process that man underwent to become “greater than God”. It won’t work, and all those who receive the Mark will be the first ones judged via the Bowls in the second half of the Week.

    I think the attempts to use gematria to figure out a specific person are a lot like using the Torah codes to figure anything out… unnecessary, wrong most of the time, and largely used to substantiate what the user wants to find moreso than what is actually correct. Hope that’s not harsh. Just my opinion.

    Romans1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

    There is a certain well-known world leader who will be of a notable age (in months) tomorrow. Just count the months from his birth until February 4, 2017.

    The big problem with using such a connection as this is the end date. Feb 4 2027 represents a date that tens of thousands of individuals are 666 days old. Why would anyone pick just one of those individuals to attach importance to this date. It is all highly subjective and completely speculative. In my opinion, nonsense.

    Remember, even if we knew who the AC is, what good would it do? Why would anyone want to draw the worlds attention to themselves by exposing who he is? Would it thwart God’s plan?



    Gods plan and purpose for my life is never at risk. Phil 1:6

    a process that man underwent to become “greater than God”… I have an Idea how man thinks he can be greater, and that will play out during the Trib… I don’t care who that really ugly rascal is, I just want all of you and my family out of here asap.. It’s not going to be a fun picnic on plant earth, for Israel or anyone else for the matter…

    He’s Kind a like Nimrod, who I think was a Giant Huh…!

    Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD. “‘ ~
    Genesis 10:8-9

    Just glad I wasn’t born during that time frame, just reading about that makes my skin crawl…
