3 Things You Should Know About "the Mark Of The Beast" (666).

That's more than the number of demons.

According to the last book of the Bible, 666 is the number or name of the beast with seven heads and ten horns that came out of the sea (Revelation 13:1, 17-18). This has confused and frightened Christians and is not mentioned in most circles. However, if you take the time to learn more about what the Bible says, the mark of the beast can be put into perspective.


This is the name

The number 666 is actually the name of the coming Antichrist. God-given names are important, and this is seen elsewhere in the Bible. For example, God gave the name Abraham which means "Father of many (many)". This makes sense because God promised to make Abraham “the father of many nations” (Genesis 17:5). In the same way, God calls the beast 666 as a symbol of its defining qualities.


Contrary to what you may have heard, the number 666 is mentioned in the Bible. Revelation 13:8 says: “He that understands understands the number of the beast; for this is the number of humans. The number is 666." The English word "rekon" comes from the Greek word for "count" or "solve." To some scholars, the Bible seems to say that numbers are a mystery.


Naming a name is called "Gematria," which is the Greek practice of adding letters to someone's name. Every letter in Greek has a numerical equivalent. Add the letters and you will get the name number. There is a similar practice in Hebrew. If you look at the original text, we see that in this section the letters 666 are actually written in Hebrew, which gives more meaning to numbers meaning words and words meaning numbers than ancient Greek.


When we translate the number 666 from the Hebrew alphabet, it is written by Nero Caesar - Nero Caesar's Hebrew spelling. Given the hatred of the Roman Empire at the time, and especially its leader Nero Caesar, who was considered extremely evil, it is not surprising that some believed that the Antichrist had come.


The number "6" has meaning in the Bible

Numbers in the Bible are often used as symbols. For example, the number 3 is often correlated with the Holy Trinity, and the number 7 is considered a perfect number representing completeness. The number “6” in the Bible is often associated with humans. Even the number 7 can mean something that is incomplete or inadequate in God's eyes and can be associated with God's enemies (1 Chronicles 20:6; Daniel 3:1). Since He represents man, it can be seen that God considers the human "human" to be an evil being. He knows that they cannot bring lasting peace and security – things only the kingdom of God can achieve.


So 666 is a number that always falls short of three times perfection: 777. The Bible sometimes emphasizes a question by pointing it out three times. The number also refers to the "Evil Trinity," the Beast Demon and the False Prophet.


The mark of the beast

The Bible identifies the number as the mark of the beast, and people can receive the mark by following it “with awe” to worship (Revelation 13:3, 4; 16:2). They did this by worshiping their homeland or other false prophets. This beast is a symbol of the world's political system that governs "every tribe and people, language and people" (Revelation 13:7).


Regarding His commandment to the Israelites, God said: "Tie it to your hands in remembrance, and it will be like a ribbon on your forehead" (Deuteronomy 11:18). This does not mean that the Israelites had to completely mark their hands and foreheads, but God's word would guide all their actions and thoughts. In the same way, instead of literally being like a 666 tattoo, the mark of the beast symbolically identifies those who let the political system run their lives. Those who have the mark of the beast are placed before God (Revelation 14:9, 10; 19, 19-21).


The angel number 666 is confusing to most Christians, but nothing to worry about. The more you learn about the book of Revelation, the Antichrist, and the Mark of the Beast, the more confident you will become about the second coming of Jesus. Keep learning what God has written about us and don't be afraid to ask Him questions.
