REVELATION CHAPTER 13


The Beast takes His throne...Ten Kingdom Empire...Another Beast  rises up from the earth...The Anti-Christ and False Prophet ...The Mark ,666, stamped upon His people.


There are two demonic beasts referred to in this chapter. The Beast Who rules the world, and the Antichristal Beast Who performs miracles and backs up the first Beast.(Rev.chapter 13 here)

The theme of the Antichristal Reign is declared from the 11th to the 19th chapters of Revelation. During this period of time John the revelator, touches upon the Battle of Armageddon, which takes place after the 31/2 year Reign of the Antichrist comes to a close.
 

Revelation 13:1
"And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.”

This is the same Beast as is spoken of in
Revelation 12:3”And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.”, only there are ten crowns on the ten horns instead of seven. This signifies that all ten powers have become crowned as kingdoms. Thus, the ten kingdom empire will back the Beast in His demonic move to organize the nations during the 31/2 year Reign.

This is one of the most terrifying chapters of the Book of Revelation to those who do not understand the symbolic setting which the language declares. A world condition which no one upon the face of the earth shall escape. Gradually this condition has been shaping up through the beast like nature of immorality in the human race, shunning the purity and deity of the Almighty God, until it will become a death penalty for all who confess Christ Jesus, as Lord. 

The Apostle John was upon the sands of the sea, beholding the vision of the last 31/2 years of the dispensation of the Age, which will come to a close when Jesus comes to raise the righteous dead.

The word "sea" in scripture represents people (i.e. sea of humanity), Revelation 17:1, Revelation 12:15, Isaiah 57:20-21, 17:12-13, Daniel 7:2-3 & 7: 17, Revelation 19:6, Jude 10-13. The sea of humanity in their surging restless condition, already is developing into a tension of nerves and frustrations. John was standing upon the sand of the sea watching a beast (a man) of demonic nature rise up out of the sea. A man of great political power.

Revelation 17:1 ”And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:”

Revelation 12:15
” And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.”  
 
Isaiah 57:20-21” But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.... There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.”

Isaiah 17:12-13  ” Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!... The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.”

Daniel 7:2-3  “ Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea. And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.”

Daniel 7:17  ”These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.”

Revelation 19:6
”And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.”

Jude 10-13 ”But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves....Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core....These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;....Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.”

The beast that John saw had seven heads. Seven is the number of completeness, and the seven heads signifies that this beast will have all the power of the six heads before him, plus the authority and power of the last and final Satanic investment. The six heads before him were Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome.
 

These six heads or kings were the six great nations who ruled the whole world in ungodliness and power of the past. At the time John saw this vision, Rome was the sixth head in power. Soon another political beast will win favor with the world, and shall receive the power of all the six heads of the past and will become the 7th head, and will be infested with all of the demonic power of the Dragon.

 The response to the Dragon's enduement of Satanic power in persecuting the Church will be honored by the Communistic world. This will bring him fame and will give him power with the nations, to rise out of the earth as the seventh head. Ten world powers will lean His way and protect His judgment.

When He is elected to rule the world, He will crown ten powers and place the crown of blasphemy upon His Own head. The ten horns are ten Last Day kings or powers who will join with Him and will exercise Their power at His command,......Daniel the 2nd chapter (Hereforeshadows these ten kings by the great image of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream.

The ten toes, part iron and part clay, gives us a picture of these ten powers who are one with the Beast. The kingdom shall be divided, but there will be in it the strength of iron. The feet being part iron and part clay, declares that everything will not run too smoothly among these kings, yet they will cling together in the cause of the Beast, But the STONE (JESUS) which was cut out of the mountain without hands shall break them to pieces and shall set up a Kingdom that shall never be destroyed. Daniel 2:44-45 This is the 1,000 year Kingdom of God on earth after the fleshly kingdom has been destroyed.
Daniel 2:44-45
“ And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.... Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.”

(See Scriptures for Danial chapter  2 and 7 )

Daniel chapter 7 shows us the same ten kings through Daniel's dream of the four beasts. The fourth beast who was diverse from the other, had ten horns upon his head, Daniel 7:20”And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. The 24th verse interprets the ten horns to be ten kings that shall arise with the little horn who shall lead them and make war with the saints…..

Daniel
7:24” And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. The 25th verse gives us the time of their reign to be 31/2 years. These kings are spoken of as the Ten Kingdom Empire, Daniel 7:25”And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”

This Empire has been forming since Russia first began to control some of the smaller nations with the communistic teachings, such as East Germany, Romania, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, Poland, and Afghanistan.

These, no doubt, will be a part of the Ten Kingdom Empire, who will join their power with the Beast, as they now are allies of Russia. There are also other nations which are mentioned in Ezekiel chapter 38, that will come from the North with Russia, (Gog) such as Persia, Ethiopia, Libya, etc. This is not the Last World War, for here Gog wars only against Israel. Nation against nation will follow when the bottomless pit is opened. These kings are selected by the Beast after He takes up His Reign as the Ruler and Head of the 3 1/2 year Reign.(See Ezekiel chapter 38 Here) 

The Beast rises up out of the people of the earth, the sea of humanity to exercise His satanic power with a beast-like nature, and to wipe all Christianity from the face of the earth. He is like a leopard, very cunning and sneaky, and He ferociously steals upon his prey. His feet were as the feet of a bear, strong and powerful. His mouth was as the mouth of a lion. The lion is the king of the beasts, when he roars, fear stills the hearts. Blasphemy is broadcast throughout the earth. The Dragon gave Him His power, and His seat and great authority.

Revelation 13:3 ” And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast."

One of his heads wounded unto death. One of his heads could only be the sixth head, for the other five are in the past, and represent only the Satanic power of the past..,We are now still under the Satanic power and dominion of the sixth head, Rome. The martyrdom of the early Apostolic ministry and of the past centuries came about through this demonic power. Protestantism in the 18th century has remained and the church became alive again. Rome dwindled down to just a few thousand inhabitants and the Satanic spirit was blanketed and all but died out. When the church began to come back in power in 1900 and 1906, the Roman spirit was revived and also became active. In the course of seventy years the "Rome" spirit has progressed to the beginning of a great revival of sin and corruption, which again will develop into a persecution and martyrdoms surpassing that of the past Early Church Age. We see this condition now gradually in progress. 

What the most of the Christian world has failed to understand is that the Church is not going to bow down to the Beastly Head, but She is going to go forth conquering, and to conquer. Not only in the winning of souls but also in delivering the Last Day plagues upon the world, being led by Jesus, the Captain of His Army.

Although Rome has dwindled away as a nation, the demonic spirit that once gave her power over all nations has never been completely conquered. It is still being manifested in the world today and will increase until it is conquered by Jesus and His Army. 

The head that is wounded by the sword unto death, and is healed is the sixth head, Rome. The sword that wounded the head is the SWORD, THE WORD OF GOD. The final blow will be struck just before the Beast, the 7th head is raised up to reign.
 

The prophecy of the Last Day Ministry cannot be denied if all prophecy is accepted and left in the time element of which it is placed in prophecy. The time element for the Last Day Ministry is before the 31/2 years of the Antichristal Reign.

Every ungodly knee will be made to bow and every tongue will be made to confess that the Lord is the God of the earth, Satan's defeat will come through the Church, The gates of hell shall not prevail against Her. The Manchild and the Woman are delivered, and then the seventh head is raised up as the Beast. God cast the Dragon out of the second heaven, and releases Him from His captivity. The world is turned over to Satan, that Old Dragon, and the influence of the sixth head becomes alive in the seventh head, the Beast, who will rule the earth for 31/2 years. Upon His head is the name of Blasphemy. The purpose of His mind is to blaspheme God, and to kill all Christians, and to seal His Own people with the number of His name, 666.

The activities of the Church will defeat the Devil's cause, and Rome will die in defeat to the objective for which she has endeavored. When the Dragon is cast out of heaven, God's hand is withdrawn from the Devil's captivity and He is healed of the deadly wound inflicted by the Church, and all of His strength and life is returned in the seventh head, the Beast.

This last defeat by the Church, is inflicted by the SWORD, (THE WORD OF GOD). This is the final death to the satanic objective to destroy the Manchild, and the Church, and it brings a noticeable reproach upon the Devil to all living in that day. But when the Devil, through the Beast, takes supreme control over the earth, and the Church withdraws from Her FINISHED MINISTRY, it brings a great confidence to His followers. The 6th head, Rome, becomes alive as the 7th head with a new king, the BEAST, as the head of the 7th kingdom.

In the Beast and head of the greatest demonic human being upon the face of the earth, as the Ruler of the world, is found the characteristics of the fullness of Satan which is given Him by the Dragon. His very soul life has changed to murder and hate. He is so saturated with the life of Satan that His whole spirit-nature is entwined in Satan's spirit. God has turned the Beast's soul over to be used by Satan. Satan can retain that soul from entering the place of the dead until Jesus comes. The soul is no longer claimed or protected by God.

All the power of the six heads represents the full power of Satan who shall infest Himself and dwell in one man who rises up out of the sea of humanity, Satan lives on an eternal plane, and has the power of Satanic life. He cannot be killed, He is not flesh and blood, but he is a spiritual Being having spiritual life drawing His existence from His father. (The God of Sin), even as we draw our Spiritual life from our Father, (The God of Righteousness). If the God of Sin could have been killed, then there would have been no need for God's plan of Salvation and God would have put an end to Him long ago.

The spiritual power of Satan during the period of the Great Tribulation, has not been fully realized by the Christian world. The fulness of His demonic power has been restricted since the creation of the world, until God's purpose and plan has been consummated. During the last 31/2 years He will be given full Reign. The Church will have been removed and the restricted hand of God lifted,
2 Thessalonians 2:1-7.Below.

Every ungodly soul has been released to Satan during His time of Reign. He will have power to endue the soul with His demonic spiritual nature, entwining them into His spiritual life,
and retaining them in the body of flesh until Jesus comes and destroys the flesh and reserves the soul to wait the Great White Throne Judgment, after the thousand years are past. Even God is capable of healing the body and refraining the soul from departing, and Satan will also have the same power by His evil spirit when all dominion and authority is turned over to Him for 31/2 years.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-7 “ Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,.... That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand..... Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;.... 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, showing himself that he is God.... Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?......And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.... For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.”

The only deaths during the Reign of the Beast are those who are martyred for their faith in the Lord. The Beast has power to retain His own. During the Reign of the Beast, all whose names are not written in the Lamb's Book of Life belong to Satan. Just as God brings those who will sell out wholly to Him into perfection of His Spirit, so Satan brings into perfection of His spirit those who whole heartedly sell out to Him. Satan has full control to retain the soul until the Tribulation is over. The soul of the Beast, (a human being) is fully sold out to Satan and entwined in His spirit. Therefore, although the body is slain, Satan can revive it again.
 

The 15th verse declares that the Antichrist has power to give life to the image of the Beast.'' And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.''.......

In Revelation 9:6,'' And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it;
and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them'' we are told that when the fifth angel sounds men will seek death because of the torment but death shall flee from them. Those that are under the demonic power of Satan are servants of Satan, and shall be controlled by Him.

The fourth beast of Daniel 7 , is the sixth head and represents the spiritual power of Satan, using the instruments of humanity. In the days of Christ, He used the emperor or Rome. Rome controlled almost all of the known world and manifested Satan's demonic power in persecuting the church and martyring the Christians. Rome eventually lost her power and dwindled down to about twenty thousand population, as a nation.

Although Rome, the sixth head has lost its power, it is still alive spiritually, and is now being revived in leaps and bounds and shall be restored to her full power. Martyrdom and great persecution shall prevail through the sixth head again before the antichristal Reign begins. The little horn of Daniel's dream will be the seventh head who shall have complete dominion and rulership over the WHOLE world for the last 42 months of the dispensation of the Age. Read. Daniel 7:6-25 (Here) 
The healing of the wound brings about a resurrection of the Beast, which is the counterfeit of the resurrection of Jesus. It was the Dragon that raised up the Beast, Who is the Father of His power, even as the Father God, raised Jesus from the dead by His power. Because of this resurrection of the Beast, it brings about universal worship. He becomes the god of the earth. "Who is like unto the beast, who received the deadly wound by the sword and did live, who is able to stand against him in war?"

Rev 13 Verses 4 and 14
.
Verse 4.”And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?”
Verse 14.”And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”

 Rev 13 Verse 5
“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.”

He was anointed by the dragon to speak great things and blaspheme, and power was given Him to continue 42 months. This is the same period of time that the Two Witnesses are to testify.
 

Rev 13 Verse 6
“And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.”
He opened His mouth in blasphemy against God, (the Father) and blasphemed His name, which was given unto the Church, through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, and His Tabernacle, (the Church which is in the wilderness) and Them that dwell in heaven. He was given the same length of time to present the False Christ, (the Counterfeit) and to bring destruction and damnation, as the True Christ was given to bring Salvation, just 3 1/2 years.

Rev 13 Verse 7 “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”
He makes war against the saints and overcomes them. The saints had to take the Mark of the Beast and be eternally lost or stand true to the Lord and die as martyrs. Those whose names were written in the Lamb's Book of Life, and who had the power of God in their lives and loved not their lives unto death, stood true.

Revelation 12:11 ” And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”

Rev 13 Verse 11"And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."....This Beast is the False Prophet Who deserted the Church and is the main cause of the great apostacy of the Church in the Last Days. His past record of desertion, and of persecuting the Church wins for Him great political power in the Communistic world, and He is favored as the False Prophet, and will deceive the world. Because of His desire to be great and have control, He is deceived by Satan and He will sell out to the Enemy and become the Antichrist in power.

He will work in unity with the first Beast. He is a great asset to Satan, and as a traitor to God. He becomes the Judas of the Last Day Apostles. He rises up like a lamb in real meekness and deception. In appearance He seems like a lamb. His scriptural knowledge has made it possible to counterfeit the Word of God and present Himself as the Antichrist, Not anti-God, or anti-Jesus, but anti-Christ. He presents Himself as an angel and the light of God. 

Christ is the name of the third Person in the Godhead. Christ is not the Son, but Christ is the anointing of the Son. Christ means "ANOINTING", and Jesus is often spoken of in scripture as Christ because of the ANOINTING. When Jesus left this world, He sent the promised Holy Spirit, Christ the anointing, to take His place in teaching the church and in bringing them into perfection.
 

This Beast is "COUNTERFEITING” the Holy Spirit, and is known as the False Prophet. The Beast with the seven heads and ten horns is counterfeiting the Son of God. This Beastly Power, died and rose again as the Beast; Satan working through this resurrection is counterfeiting the Resurrecting Power of God.

All the power of the Dragon was given to the Beast, even as all the power of God was given to the Son of God. The power which was given to Jesus was to put down Satan and show the power of God and lift God up. The Beast counterfeits Jesus by lifting up the Dragon as He manifests the power of the Dragon. Satan has impersonated God, and God's method of operation, from the very beginning of the Age, and in His last and final movements He is counterfeiting the Godhead, as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Dragon is illustrated as the invisible "father", the Beast is likened as Jesus the Son, and the False Prophet is likened as the Holy Spirit.
 

The False Prophet had two horns like a lamb. These two horns represent two powers which He will rule over. Notice that He spake as a Dragon, that is, with all authority, for He exercised all the power of the first beast before Him. However, He came as a lamb and approaches His objective with a milder attitude but with a voice of authority and sternness. His two powers were the power over commerce and religion,
Rev 13 verses 15 and 17.
15.”And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”
17.”And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” 
He has no control over Salvation, for the only Christians left on earth at this time, are those who were taken into the wilderness.

Revelation 12:6 and 14.
12:6 ”And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.”
12:14 “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.”

All other Christians, the Woman's seed, had already been martyred,
Revelation 12:11 and 17 . The religion is said to be the worship of the Beast, and commerce is shown to be the product of livelihood.
12:11”And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
12:17”And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”

Like the Holy Spirit, Who came into the world to lift up Jesus and to bring worship unto Him, so the False Prophet lifts up the Beast and makes an image of the Beast to be worshipped. Over 2500 years ago, during the reign of the third demonic power, Nebuchadnezzar, who is said to be the beast of his day, and is the first of the four beasts described and shown as the head of gold, there was also an image made to be worshipped, Daniel 2:38, and Daniel 7:4.

This image was in honor to the king the great head of gold, the beast and ruler of the world. While the king (Nebuchadnezzar) still lived and ruled with a hand of iron, all the people were made to bow down and worship the image or be cast into the fiery furnace…
 
Daniel 2:38 “ And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.
Daniel 7:4 “ The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man,and a man's heart was given to it.”

In these Last Days, once again, the seventh head, the Beast of the world power will be represented by the image of the Beast set up by the False Prophet. All must worship the image or die. 
                                                              
                                                      
                                                       THE NUMBER 666

Revelation 13:18
"Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."

For many years this prophecy has disturbed the Christian world...The prophecy is divided into three aspects.

1.  There is a need of wisdom to understand.
2.   It is the number of the Beast.
3.   It is the number of a man.

The first aspect is, that he who will, needs to be capable of understanding, and he needs to be capable of counting the number of the Beast, and he must have a thorough knowledge of the prophetic statements throughout the Word of God. The understanding of the mysteries of prophecy does not come through the intellect of the world, but rather it comes through the inspiration of the Spirit of God in which it was written. 

The second aspect is, that it is the number of the BEAST. Here again we must rely upon the Biblical information concerning prophecy of the coming Beast of Revelation 13:1” And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.” Who rises up out of the sea of humanity. We are not told what nation He will rise up from, and only when He appears shall we know. Let us stay in the confines of the prophecy, with no guesses.

 The third aspect is that the number 666 is the number of a man. This tells us that the Beast is a human being and that the number of the Beast and the number of man are the same.
 

Here is some of the wisdom that is needed to be able to understand....There are two outstanding 
numbers recorded in the Bible that symbolizes the nature and condition of life invested in the human body. Number SEVEN refers to the completeness of the righteous God of SEVEN SPIRITS, Who is Almighty in power and holiness. He created the world and all that there is within it, and on the SIXTH day He created man, and rested on SEVENTH day, completing a full week and completing a complete foundation for His plan of redemption. The number SEVEN, when followed through the Bible, not only declares His Personal completeness, but also His proposed plan of completeness.

The number SIX is the number of unredeemed man, created on the SIXTH day, and deceived and taken over by Satan, and hence-forth manifested the evil of sin. The Bible declares the fulness of man in God to be BODY, SOUL, and SPIRIT, of God. Yet when man was created, God made him only BODY and SOUL, without the Quickening Spirit.......Why did God create him in only Body and soul life?......Because man was created to sin, so that sin might abide in his body, thus when the Devil entered into the body, He controlled the BODY and SOUL. He then became Satan's man, the Body 6, the Soul 6, and the spirit of Satan 6. 

This number SIX clearly declared to be the number of the Beast,
Revelation 13:18 “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”….
 and man rightly inherited the number of the Beast at creation, and if not redeemed he will be marked in his forehead or on his right hand, with the numbers 666 by the Antichrist during His 3 1/2 year Reign. BUT ALL REDEMPTION TAKES PLACE BEFORE THE 3 1/2 YEAR ANTICHRISTAL REIGN.

The number 666 signifies the demonic nature of sin. The number is declared by God as the opposite of His Own number which is 777, His Own nature and characteristic. The motivation of God is that His new creature should take on His divine nature by injecting His Own Spirit Nature through the New Birth into the body of His Adamic man who was created perfect in SOUL LIFE ONLY.
 

The Adamic man was overcome by the spirit of sin entering into his body while he was in the Garden of Eden, even as Lucifer was overcome while He was in the GARDEN in heaven,
Ezekiel 28:13 ”Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.”

God permitted the spirit Of sin to enter into the body of Adam for it was a part of His plan to use sin to prove His New Creation, while promoting His plan of Salvation. Sin was needed for God to prove His New Creature because God needed to have His creature resist sin unto perfection. Thus, Adam was deceived and accepted the spirit of sin, which polluted his body, and took over his soul life that lived in his sinful body, and he then became body, soul, and the spirit of the Devil. The number 666, became the number of all unredeemed mankind. 

All prophecy has its place in the time element of the Last Day movement. It has been Very difficult for the Christian world to understand the time element, due to the various doctrinal faith in which they have followed in their early teaching.

 Every prophecy which is removed from its intended place of fulfillment because it clashes with one's teachings, only brings about greater confusion. Much prophecy is set aside because there is no place found for it in the time element. The theory that all will be fulfilled at once when Jesus comes is not scriptural. This leaves the Christian wide open for deception in the Last Days. All that is published concerning the number 666, or the Mark of the Beast, should be understood by what the Bible records and not by searching the world for every number that is being used as 666.

Throughout the world the method of using digits, numbers, letters, narrow and wide lines, etc., are being used as identification marks as a shorter and faster method of bookkeeping. This procedure is now in operation, and no doubt will increase in the cutting down of labor and expense. Many new devices shall appear in the next few years that will change our book keeping system. However, the NUMBER 666 AS THE MARK OF THE BEAST deals exclusively with the ungodly people on earth and not with the Christian world.

This may seem as a far out remark to you, but no Christian WILL RECEIVE THE MARK OF THE BEAST, nor will the mark be effective upon any man until the Beast has been given full power during the 31/2 year period. At this time the mark system will be fully revised in the world and the Antichrist will use it upon His Own. Only those that are deceived through His great ministry of miracles so that He might be lifted up as the God of power will receive the mark. In this day we have much scripture being used, steeped with man's imagination and assumption. We do well if we heed more closely to the scriptural quotations and the time element, and do less searching the world for signs to prove our theories. However, the number 666 is not a theory, but a fact and it will be stamped upon all who follow the Antichrist, and all professing Christians who have been deceived. 

The Old Testament scriptures foreshadow the worship of images, and when an attempt was made to force God's people to worship the image, it turned out to be a boomerang, Esther 7:10 “So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified” and Daniel 3 (Read Here). Never has Israel been forced to take a mark of any kind. Why do I say this?.........Because the same is true when Satan takes over the world.

 No Christian will be forced to take the mark 666. Those who will be martyred, will lay down their lives willingly. If you are one who follows your fore-farther's teachings, and will be honest with God and yourself, then you will let the Word of God say what it means, and mean what It says, even if it crosses what you have been taught and have accepted.

After the Beast takes over, ALL that are left on earth will worship Him and take the mark 666 or they will be killed............Who are they?..........Let the Bible answer Revelation 13:8 "All that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, WHOSE NAMES ARE NOT WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. “Please notice that all that worship him ARE NOT CHRISTIANS, but rather it is those whose names are not written in the Book of Life. Those that loved not their lives unto death,

Revelation 12:
11
and 17.
Rev 12:11” And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
Rev 12:17” And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” 

They are not forced to take the mark and They laid down their lives willingly. The Beast's only interest in this class of Christian is to destroy them. All others were deceived by the False Prophet and the False Christs, Matthew 24:11 and 24.
Matthew 24:11 “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.”

Matthew 24:24 “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
