World Population & 666
Biblical prophecies of the book of Revelation
warn of the "mark of the beast" which is the
"number of a man."
Many interpret this to mean that every man in the
world will be assigned a number (such as a social
security number) so that "Big Brother" (the
"beast") can keep track of him, and hence control
man's life. In the age of personal computers and
the internet, this seems very plausible, but if
one studies the prophecies in the language it was
written in (Hebrew), one will arrive at a much
better theory as to what this 666 really is.
First, let us digress toward a little background
on the subject.
In the ancient numerology of the day the text was
written, the number 3 stood for divinity. The
number 6 stood for man (who was viewed as
inherently evil...without God, of course), and
the number 9 stood for God and all that's holy.
Therefore, the number 999 represents the trinity and divinity
in God. The number 666 (also note that this is
999 "upside-down") represents a divinity in
mankind and all the natural evils it embodies.
In the Hebrew language, a limited amount of
symbols are used to represent numbers. Depending
on context and symbol placement, the very exact
same set of symbols may represent more than one
unique number. This is what lead to a controversy
within theological circles regarding a
misinterpretation of the "mark" as the number
616. In actuality, the number in the Hebrew
manuscripts could be interpreted to be the
numbers 66, 666 and their products with various
powers of 10 (660, 6600, 6660, 66600, etc.)!
In these recent times, man has earned himself a
more evil place in the world. Mankind itself
could very well be called a beast. As we say,
it's our nature, or "the nature of the beast."
What not if the prophecies foretell of man being
individually numbered, but instead numbered as a
whole entity...an entity of evil and corruption.
Those who are "a part of the world" will be those
receptive to the beast, hence, receiving its
"mark." Those not marked will not be a part of
the evil system of man, but instead of the holy
God's system. Because of this, those not
receiving the beast will be shunned by it, and
not allowed to partake in its operations...thus,
not allowed to buy or sell etc. (as the
One way to "mark" (or measure) mankind is to
count him. Not necessarily assigning an identity
number to each person, but counting the number of
all those individuals. Therefore, the number
represented in the Book of Revelation could be
the WORLD'S POPULATION!
Since this scriptural number or "mark" of the
"beast" could be the world population, one of the
numbers it could represent is 6,660,000,000! That
is, when the world population reaches 6.66
billion people, this may "mark" the beginning of
the end. This may be an indicator of how near the
Rapture is, as well as indicating the rise of a
New World Order and/or a representative and ruler
of the "beast"...a world dictator!
What a coincidence! In 1999 the WTO (World Trade
Organization) met with extreme opposition.
Protestors were beaten by the "beast" government
as they rallied against a possible loss of the
free market as the world moves toward a global
cooperative enterprise. At the same time the
world population was approaching 6.66 billion as
we neared Y2K (the year 2000, which was believed by
many fundamentalists to be the date of the return
of Christ and/or the Rapture).
