Who Is This Beast Mentioned In Revelation 13:18? - 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."

Can someone please elaborate on that?

PLEASE READ THE WHOLE TEXT PROPERLY. THIS IS NOT A JOKE!

Revelation 13:1-18; "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.

2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
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.
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?
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.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
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.
8 And 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.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
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.

12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
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.
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.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
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.
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."

Vinaka Jerex.I absolutely loved those verses above(Mathew 13:10-17).I hope you will also have a deep understanding of what it means.
History is a very important part of the Bible.It occupies one third of the Bible.The prophet Isaiah knew of its importance that he declared in chapter 41:22 "..let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them,and know the latter end of them,or declare us things to come."He knew in order to look into the future we have to consider the past. Winston Churchill the hero of the free world during WWII once declared,"The farthest you look back into the past, the farthest you can peer into the future."
The book of Revelation is the best book to look to if you want to know the chronological order of things to come.
Forty two months as in verse 5 of Revelation chapter 13 is equal to 3.5 years.It also means 1260 days.However since a day is the same as a year to God it also means 1260 years.And since Revelation is in chronological order, here in this case it is still in the middle ages.We have to search out a 1260 years life of the beast or Roman empire.As shown here the 1260 years started some times after the beast sustained the deadly wound.
It is a well documented hitory that the empire was routed in AD 476 and revived by Justinian in AD 554.There were successive dynasties of the empire right up to Napoleon Bonaparte.His empire was dissolved in 1814.Count the years between AD 554 and 1814,yes it's exactly 1260 years.
There is however another 3.5 years when the Antichrist will rule with the ten toes of Daniel's dream.It will be ten nations or groups of nation.This 3.5 years starts when the seven angels appears with the 7 vials. Notice in Revelation 16:12 the sixth vial was poured and the Euphrates was dried up. This was when Russia, China and other nations from the East marched to the Middle East for Armageddon.
The Bible is the Word of God and we shouldn't try to weazel our way around important truths in order to make unfounded human reasonings.We should stick to biblical interpretation no mater what.It is people wanting others to believe their own interpretation which resulted in many sects and denominations.
Now it is just common sense that the last resurrection of the beast and the Antichrist will run together before being destroyed together.It is very unsafe for your soul to keep preaching that the beast and the antichrist is the one.We must keep in mind now that it is God's time now for His Gospel to reach the end of the earth.It would be very foolish to suppress it.
The following verse differentiate the two namely the beast and false prophet.
Revelation 16:13 " And I saw THREE unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the DRAGON,and out of the mouth of the BEAST,and out of the mouth of the FALSE PROPHET."
Thank you.

vinaka Ulaya...

For your information, I totally stand by the comments I post and I DO NOT believe that what I post here is, as you assume, (quote), "very unsafe for your soul to keep preaching...."

I will, for now, refer you back to what you posted above, for your own contemplation....

"The Bible is the Word of God and we shouldn't try to weazel our way around important truths in order to make unfounded human reasonings.We should stick to biblical interpretation no mater what.It is people wanting others to believe their own interpretation which resulted in many sects and denominations."

vinaka.

Vinaka Jerex.
The choice is all yours. Believe it or not.
I am not trying to create a new denomination but I am spreading the true Gospel before the end comes.I seek no benefits here for I crave only to be accounted worthy to be in God's kingdom.
Vinaka.
Is the Antichrist about to appear?
A harsh critic of Vladimir Putin early this year proclaimed,"why is there too many leaders lining up to be the new Chamberlain? Where are the Churchills?"
He was saying this after the German Chancellor and French President struck a deal with Putin of Russia.
The deal was denounced as a loss to the free world. The NEW leaders of today's free world never really make a statement but instead submitted to all of Putin's demand.
They agreed and signed that Ukraine shouldn't be supplied any more weapons and Russia to stop the attacks against Ukraine.Once they returned,Putin broke the treaty and continued the attacks.
Chamberlain was the British PM at the start of WWII.He gave away and signed a large chunk of Chezckoslavia in order for Germany to stop their advance. The European people especialy British were hysterical with joy.But Churchill was the only voice crying that they have to make a stand while Chamberlain was waving a piece of paper and saying peace,peace in our time.A few months later German continued their offensive and Britain was at war with Germany.
Now Europe especialy the German people wanted a strong man.One who can stand up to Russia. America and Britain are now both weak and people are now looking to Germany as the leader of the EU to produce the next strong man to stop the advancing Russians. Merkel the now chancellor is too weak and is likened to Chamberlain.Ukraine is just on their doorstep and they are already feeling uneasy.European wanted a man who can declare war on Putin.
They want a new Charlemagne.Charlemagne was a Roman emperor who waded through blood in order to convert people to his Catholic faith.The EU is formulated in the spirit of the Roman empire and Charlemagne even though people doesn't realise it.
The urgency of time could see this man appointed to take the helm without being elected.His name is Karl zu Gutenberg. When he was the German Defense minister, he overtook Angela Merkel as the most popular parlimentarian.And he has already criticised Western leaders for not declaring war on Russia.
The Bible foretold of a Russian and Eastern Nations confederacy marching against the EU.
Is he the Antichrist? In all his policy and his ways it looks like he is the one .

Vinaka Ulaya,

 

From the posts you share, correct me if I misread you, are you saying we are already into the 2nd 3 & 1/2 years of the Great Tribulation period the Book of Revelations is talking about?

 

Ref: your post (quote)..

vinaka

What kingdom or nation lasted from 554AD tell 1814?  I just look up those years and found no kingdom.  What do you think of 570AD to 1830AD for the spiritual dark period?

Yes Keith, because they are successive dynasties of the Roman empire or revivals.It starts from the fourth horn who was Justinian on the wounded beast's head to Napoleon who was the eighth horn,before the beast went into the abyss.
The empire came out of perdition when Garibaldi revived the empire in 1870.This horn ceased when Italy,Austria and Hitler's machine was defeated in World War II.

What is the name of the Revivals, what was revived in 554AD anyways?

The Roman empire was restored after Justinian plucked the first three horns namely the Ostrogoths,Vandals and Herullis barbaric tribes.They are foreigners ruling in Roman territories.
Vinaka Jerex and thank you Ann for the interest.
Tribulation is not an imaginary thing or far off war to happen.
Daniel 11:40 tells of the King of the South who is now Iran,making an attack against the King of the North or the EU and that the EU will destroy Iran,Egypt, Libya and her allies in a very short war before turning to Israel.
Now in Psalm 83 the Assyria or Germany is mentioned as confederate with ten nations from the volatile Middle East marching against Israel and conspiring against God's church.But Iran, Egypt and Libya are all missing from this Psalm.This cannot be since Iran have always declared that they will wipe Israel off the map.Psalm 83 if you don't know is talking about the tribulation.
So if you want to know the time of the tribulation, just watch for the EU destroying Iran and her allies.Because the EU will turn her attention to Israel next.
That is when the tribulation of God's people are about to start.A time Jesus declared in Matthew 24:16 "Then let them be in Judea flee into the mountains."

Vinaka Ulaya.

You did not answer my question. I also do not regard the Tribulation period as "an imaginary thing or a far off war to happen" as you alluded to.

I will refer you again to your earlier posting ....

It is a well documented hitory that the empire was routed in AD 476 and revived by Justinian in AD 554.There were successive dynasties of the empire right up to Napoleon Bonaparte.His empire was dissolved in 1814.Count the years between AD 554 and 1814,yes it's exactly 1260 years.

Notice in Revelation 16:12 the sixth vial was poured and the Euphrates was dried up. This was when Russia, China and other nations from the East marched to the Middle East for Armageddon.


From the above, I "read" that the first 3&1/2 years ended in 1814 and the 2nd 3&1/2 years had already started as per the last sentence from the quote above.

Is that what you are saying?

vinaka. 

 

Hahaha..Jerex now you are starting to act like a little kid.Anybody can pick that Russia and China haven't declared war on Europe and Armageddon have not happened yet.
I mean you should have understood that it shouldn't be in past tense and there was an error.
But then biblical prophecy is history written in advance.I'd rather have you contribute in a constructive way then trying to be an English teacher.
But then thanx Jerex for pointing that out.
