Mark of the Beast; Number of a Man

Introduction

In the first two parts of our series (Part 1, Part 2) on The Two Beasts of Revelation 13 we discovered that the first beast was a kingdom with a powerful entity behind it; Apollo, the sun god (Abaddon in Hebrew).  This further dispelled the belief that the beast out of the sea is the Antichrist and strengthened the case that the beast out of the earth is the False Prophet and also the Antichrist himself; he causes all to worship the kingdom and the god of forces as the spiritual archon ruling that kingdom. 

In the final part of our series, we have something vitally important to share and we pray that our readers do not just shrug it off because it is entirely different from anything we (all of us) have been taught in the past.  What we will show you doesn’t fit our long-standing paradigms of how the end of days will play out.  We have studied this extensively and prayed consistently for God to show us His answer to our questions.  What we found shocked us.  The main topic of study is the mark of the beast and the man who will cause all to worship it; this will most likely be the first time you have heard this interpretation.  We pray at the very least, that you will remember what we have found, when the time comes…

Over Exposure; 666

The number 666 and the mark of the beast are larger than life characters out of Bible prophecy.  The number as well as the mark of the beast are so mainstream that it has been referenced often in music, movies and even on “the devils highway – Route 666”.  Before changing its route name to 491 in 2003, Route 666 had a huge problem; road sign theft.  People, for one reason or another thought it a worthy sign to steal and hang who knows where.  You can even find these road signs on sale on the Internet today.

Thinking of the prevalence of the number 666 specifically, we started to wonder if we had been getting the interpretation of this passage wrong.  The prevailing question we had was, how could this be the number we are going to see the Antichrist employ if everyone, including unbelievers, already know that it is associated with Satan and his man, the Antichrist?  Think about this for a second as we did.  If you ask any adult person (and even many teenagers) who are not believers in Christ what 666 is, wouldn’t most have some sort of answer related to the Bible and or Satan himself?  We could venture to guess that nearly 10 out of 10 people would have some idea that 666 is related to the mark of the beast. The number 666 suffers from severe over exposure! This is what led to a deeper look at the passage…

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.

Revelation 13:16-18

In verse 16 we see the Antichrist forces all people under his authority to take a mark in their right hand or their forehead.  We are told this mark consists of one of two things; the name of the beast or the number of his name.  It is verse 18 that we will repeat here, that we need to pay very close attention to…

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. 


This verse starts off with something that should cause all of us to pause; “here is wisdom….”  Everyone has assumed that the number we were looking for was 666 and it was going to be related to the name of the Antichrist because most people believe the beast out of the sea is he.  As we have pointed out in the first two parts of our series, Daniel 7 and Revelation 13 show us that the beast out of the sea is a kingdom with a powerful principality behind it; Abaddon, or Apollo the sun god!  Thus, we must look at this verse closer to see exactly what it is saying.

1. We are to count the number of the beast
2. It is the number of a man
3. The man’s number is 666 (six hundred threescore and six)


Since the beast is not a man, we must find who that man is.  With the clue of “here is wisdom”, we must realize where wisdom comes from; God.  Proverbs 2:6 says “For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding”.  The Bible is literally the Word of God and when we read his Word, it’s straight from His mouth!  While all of us have spent centuries calculating every evil rulers name to see if it comes to 666, the answer was so much closer than we thought…

Because this is a new line of thought, we need to slow this down (as if we are watching a film frame by frame) and show you one more time…

….for it is the number of a man;  and his number is six hundred and threescore six.

Bible prophecy is defined by the Bible, period.  Upon retrospection when looking at this verse, this clearly means the answer is in the Bible!  What man’s number in the Bible is 666? 

The Number of Adam

On the sixth day of Creation, God created man and called him Adam.  Adam was created in the image of God.  God is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; the trinity of the Godhead or 777 (seven is the number of perfection and completion in the Bible).  Man was created in God’s image as a trinity on that sixth day as body, soul and spirit; 666 to God’s 777.  People have often attributed this 666 to a Satanic trinity, but is that correct?  God is the author of all life and he is the Creator of numbers; numbers do not belong to Satan!  Because numbers belong to God, the clue of 666 points us straight back to God’s creation of Adam!

How can we be sure of this?  The verse (again) tells us that it is the number of “a man”.  The Greek word here is anthropos.  Anthropos means man, human, mankind and is a word-for-word swap with the Hebrew word adam.  When we use the Greek Old Testament (the Septuagint) and go back to the creation account in Genesis we find the use of “anthropos” in every instance of the name Adam or reference to Adam as “man”.  With this knowledge in hand, we can write this verse to be understood better…

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of Adam; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Adam’s number is 666 because he was created on the sixth (6th) day as body, soul and spirit.  He was the only man to have an intact spirit since everyone born to him and Eve, were born with body and soul and yet a spirit that was dead in transgressions; this is precisely why Christ had to come in the first place and why we must be “born again”!  He brings life to our dead spirit when we turn to him in faith and repentance! Thus, Adam was the only true 666 in human history!

This begs the question, what is the number of the beast if it isn’t literally 666?  The verse tells us to calculate the number of this man and we have found he is Adam.  We must calculate the gemtatria value of Adam’s name!

Adam in Hebrew is spelled (Hebrew reads from right to left):  אָדָם

The calculation for the name אָדָם is 45.

אָ (Aleph) = 1

דָ (Dalet) = 4

ם (Mem) = 40


Added together, Aleph, Dalet and Mem equal 45.  This is the number of the beast for he is not a man, but Adam was the original man; the 666! 

The first question we might ask is, why would Satan have the Antichrist use the number 45?  The answer(s) is simple;

1. Deception. Satan knows most will not study prophecy diligently and will believe the number 666 is what we are to look for in the future when buying or selling. Remember even a vast number of unbelievers know the number 666!

2. Satan is always trying to unseat God and he does this by counterfeit.  As stated earlier, God created all numbers.  The numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 are the foundation of every number in the infinite combination of numbers.  Those numbers, when added together, 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 = 45.  This will not go unnoticed in the Antichrist’s dealings with the nation of Israel.  The religious Jews will see this as a sign of his Messiahship since each of those numbers were created by God, and for God’s glory.  But… Satan wants to steal it for himself; this is where we discovered something equally as interesting…

Having laid out the case in the second part of our series that the beast out of the sea is none other than the god of forces (Abaddon in Hebrew; Apollo(yon) in Greek), we now can look at the Greek numerical value of the number 45.  The number 45 in Greek is represented by these two letters; με and though we don’t use this as dogmatic evidence, it is quite interesting none the less. The first letter is Mu (with a value of 40) and the second letter is Epsilon (with a value of 5) or m and e; ME!!  The number 45 = ME in Greek.  And because the beast out of the sea is the Prince of Greece and has been given his power by the dragon/Satan (Rev. 13:2), it makes complete sense that Satan’s ME would be the opposition to God’s I AM!!  Is it not always all about Satan (in his mind)? Could the Greek letters μ and ε actually be the “mark of the beast”? That is something to ponder for later. Again, we aren’t dogmatic on this position….yet.

A Shocking Find; The Evidence is Piling Up

At the beginning of this article we said, “What we found shocked us”.  We fully believe that God has shown us who the Antichrist is and many who read this are not going to like it, while others will be in full agreement and yet others will be on the fence.  Before we move on we must remember who our allegiance is to – Christ.  Nothing aside from him matters.  If we put our faith in earthly things such as governments and political parties, then our vision will be compromised, and we will walk around in darkness.  We know if you are a true Born-Again believer in Christ, you will come around, but at what cost?  We pray everyone’s eyes are wide open now…

The staggering amount of circumstantial evidence piling up against President Donald Trump is enough to make the quasi-discerning Christian wonder about this man.  From his penthouse on the 66th floor of Trump Tower, New York we can see that he has decorated it in Greek imagery and architecture.  Apollo the sun god (the god of forces he worships) adorns the ceiling as well as the center of a painting above the fire place (see here). Some may argue that his penthouse is not decorated with the Greeks in mind, but in the style of Louis the XIV. Even if that were the case, we must inform the reader that France’s monarch was known as “The Sun King”!

There was also a triangular grove of trees planted on this very same Trump Tower; each side had six trees or 666 (see here). Trump designed this tower himself!

Donald Trump was born in 1946. When multiplied, 1 x 9 x 4 x 6 = 216. What is significant about the number 216? It is the number 6 cubed or 6 x 6 x 6 = 216. Even the fictional Left Behind Series got something right and used this number in association with their Antichrist character Nicolae Carpathia.

In 2001 he opened Trump World Tower as a high-rise condominium.  The address… 845 United Nations Plaza.  Is it a coincidence that this address has an 8 (the number of Christ/Messiah) and 45 (his presidential number)?

Also, his name is “Trump” which is a word used in the Bible for trumpet.  The Antichrist is known as the “little horn” in Daniel 7 and 8; a trumpet is a little horn. When taking all the evidence into consideration, this is no coincidence.

His name Donald means “ruler of the world”, the exact thing the Antichrist is going to try to do!!!  This gives much new meaning to his nickname The Donald i.e. THE RULER OF THE WORLD! Jesus said this to the Jews who were expecting a political savior in John 5:43, “I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.”  Trump’s name precedes him throughout the world with his brand in everything from construction, real-estate development, entertainment, hospitality, retail, online shopping and investments.

President Trump’s mother’s name was Mary (Jesus’ mother’s name) and his father’s middle name was Christ (no explanation needed) which is taken from his maternal grandmother Elizabeth Christ

Trump is working on the Deal of the Century peace plan to help end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, something he has stated he has wanted to do as far back as 1983 (see here).  The Antichrist will force a covenant with the many (Daniel 9:27) and most who study Bible prophecy believe it is a peace plan between Israel and her enemies.  He is a “friend” of Israel, something that the Antichrist will appear to be before the midpoint of the 70th Week.  In an earthquake of a move, Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal Capital and moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem – just as Israel had celebrated its 70th year back in the land (which is a prophetic number in its own right). Additionally, on the day we published this article, Trump tweeted that the U.S. would officially acknowledge the *Golan Heights as belonging to Israel….on the Jewish holiday of Purim!

As the world’s most powerful country, these were huge prophetic events.  Leading up to and after the Jerusalem move, streets in and around Jerusalem have been named after Trump and a commemorative coin was even minted with the profile of his face on it along with King Cyrus of Persia.  Trump fits the description of the little horn as seen in Daniel 7 as well…

While I was contemplating the horns, behold, another horn, a little one, came up among them, and three of the first horns were pulled out by the roots before it; and behold, this horn possessed eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth uttering GREAT BOASTS

Daniel 7:8

Then I kept looking because of the sound of the BOASTFUL WORDS which the horn was speaking; I kept looking until the beast was slain, and its body was destroyed and given to the burning fire.

Daniel 7:11

…and the meaning of the ten horns that [were] on its head and the other horn which came up, and before which three of them fell, namely, that horn which had eyes and a mouth uttering GREAT BOASTS and which was larger in appearance than its associates.

Daniel 7:20

We believe Daniel saw these very boasts in his vision in Daniel 7; see the two videos below:

You can also read about Trump’s two hours of boasting at the March 2019, Conservative Political Action Conference (here). The title of the article alone is telling of this man: Trump, at CPAC, gives 2-hour speech in praise of himself!! He never runs out of breath when telling us all how great he is!

[UPDATE] Since the article was first published President Trump tweeted the following comments from Conservative author and radio personality Wayne Allyn Root, touting the greatness of Trump. Trump did not deny any of it, but accepted the praise! The blasphemous tweet was published by Trump on August 21, 2019…

Trump Tweet Accepting Praise of Himself August 21, 2019

On the exact same day as the tweet above, President Donald Trump upped the ante and declared in a news conference about the trade war with China that “I am the chosen one”, see link here. At the 48 second mark of the video, Trump turns away from the camera and looks towards the heavens and proclaims loudly “I am the chosen one!” and then looks back at the media. If Trump is just talking about trade, then why the need to look skyward and say that phrase on the very same day a man says Trump is the “second coming of God” as well as “….like he’s the King of Israel”?

With all this information, the question we have now is, are you starting to see it? The little horn is rising in front of our eyes and the shocking truth is seen in the number of the beast; 45.

Shortly after we discovered that 45 was the number of a man (Adam), this advertisement came across our computer screens on separate occasions.  We have both witnessed it and took screenshots of it.  Notice the 45 right in the middle of the picture?  We have encountered it on Trump/Pence 2020 re-election material from the official Donald J. Trump Facebook page as well.  This is highly unusual in that no President has ever used his number (Trump is the 45th President in U.S. history) in the way Trump is doing.  Why the need for the 45?  We believe this is the precursor to what we will see in the late first half, to midpoint of the 70th Week.

Also note Trump’s slogan, Make America Great Again (MAGA).  As we have stated in the first two parts of this series, the Antichrist will seek worship of the beast empire and the beast behind it.  MAGA is all over the place in Trump Country and that made us wonder, what is the gematria value of MAGA?  If you didn’t guess it yet, it is 45!  Mem (40) Aleph (1) Gimel (3) Aleph (1).  The 45th President wants to MAGA; Make America Great Again!  This is the singular biggest calling card of the Antichrist!  As the highest ranking military official (Commander in Chief) of the most powerful military in the world, one who honors a god of forces, Donald Trump will be unstoppable. This chant of MAGA fits right in line with our presentations in part one and part two of this series… that the beast out of the earth, the Antichrist (False Prophet/Little Horn) will cause all to worship the first beast out of the sea …

…. The United States of America ….

It is important that we be discerning and wise as God’s children.  So many times in Scripture we are instructed, “do not be deceived”.  We fully believe that Trump is trying to appear to be doing all the good and moral things… but it is merely a smokescreen for a deeper play.  Satan’s job is to deceive many.  He doesn’t need to deceive the pagans and unbelievers.  He needs and desires to deceive those who profess Christ.  To this end, Trump is playing a long con game.  He has successfully convinced many Christians that they have been “persecuted” long enough by the changing tide of morality in our nation and it’s time to MAGA!  Please do not be fooled by this!  He is using government to try to bring order out of chaos and he’s convinced many that only he (as a savior figure) can do this.  He alone boasts that we can get back to a moral country again and regain our rights and put the “sinners” in their place.  The problem with this is the same problem the Israelites faced when they demanded a king… they were elevating a man (in their case King Saul) as the savior they needed.  And yet God says, “I have provided a savior whose name is Jesus Christ.  He alone can save.” 

This was the problem Jesus faced in his first advent. The religious, “moral right” of the day wanted an earthly kingdom of “righteousness” set up; a political savior. What they got was God in the flesh who wanted to save men’s souls; to give him new life and a new spirit! It was the sinners, those who were drunkards, adulterers, liars and tax collectors who flocked to Jesus and were saved; those not professing faith in their own righteousness. It was the religious, moral right that had Jesus put to death; they hated him. They didn’t need to be saved…

The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

Luke 18:11-12

Today’s “sinners” are the evildoers of the political left and their following, those pushing for a New World Order through the nefarious “Deep State”. We know this because the moral right let’s us know this every day on social media and they have found their hero in President Donald Trump. Trump beats the drum for them as they cheer his continual “winning”. The Donald is beating the Deep State and is delaying the NWO, they say. The irony is that these “sinners” hate Trump, just as the religious, moral right hated the perfect Son of God. Trump can’t be the Antichrist, so many hate him!? Well, so many on the right hated Jesus in his first advent and he IS the Savior!

Many Christians who are deep into MAGA expect the little horn will rise from the political left, but how would that deceive “even the very elect” as our Lord warned in Matthew 24? A socialist dictator is what they are expecting, but it is not what we have gotten. We have received a “champion” who vows that the United States will never be a socialist nation, one who will drain the swamp of corruption! The sinners rage, and the crowd goes wild…

Final Thoughts

Restoring the United States to a god-fearing nation will never come through the Donald or through exalting a right-wing government (and we are by no means liberals!).  We have fallen into the trap of believing we can bring heaven to earth through government.  And Trump is exploiting that.  Please wake up before it is too late and see the deception for what it is.  The only true way for revival of men’s hearts is through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit and the Gospel of Jesus Christ; something sinners on the left (and right) so desperately need!

    I’ve wondered this . It is a matter for great prayer that we would have eyes to see correctly and wisdom to speak if necessary! I am feeling a bit isolated. But trusting the Lord our messiah Jesus to guide by His Spirit and word.

    Great article and nice touch on the 45 angle…though back in July of 2014.. the Holy Spirit revealed to me it is Barack Obama…. I never asked for this information Holy Spirit just dropped on me.. everything that the Holy Spirit has told me would happen in my life has come to pass… so I’m “ALL IN” as they say in Tex’ Hold’em… Holy Spirit also taught me that Jesus Christ number is 17 not 8.. Jesus Christ resurrected on the 17 of Abib/Nisan… if you look at YAHWEH in Hebrew it looks like a 717.. God n the Son… you are correct on the 777… on 11/5/08 the day after Obama win the election the pick 3 in the Illinois State lottery was 666 n the pick 4 was 7779 (or 9777) either way it’s God saying here is the AC but I’m right on him..,9 is judgement/wrath… Obama’s zip code in Chicago was 60606…his limo was the BEAST… his Secret Service code name was RENEGADE which means TRAITOR… his chant YES WE CAN backwards is THANK YOU SATAN.. at the Denver Democratic Convention at the Broncos football field as he accepted the nomination with Thunder the white bronco above him tell all the Muslim world I’m the Son Rising out of the West or their messiah/Al-Mahdi… great article though God bless

      Ramiro,
      Thank you for reading the article, we appreciate it very much!

      Time will tell on whether or not you really heard from the Holy Spirit or we did. What we can do is look at the Scriptures to define what we already have in front of us.

      Your second claim that the Holy Spirit taught you that the number of Jesus is 17 would need a lot of back up from many, many sources within the Church. The number 8 is his number and in gematria, Iesous = 888, and we doubt that is going to change.

      As far as Yaweh (יהוה) equaling 717, this is incorrect as well though we know that isn’t what you meant….this is for clarification for other readers.

      yod hey vav hey
      10 + 5 + 6 + 5 = 26

      You are REALLY stretching by saying the letters look like 717.

      יהוה
      717…..

      This is not a proof for it really doesn’t look like 717 unless you take parts of the letters out. Bible prophecy is not defined by looking at letters and declaring they mean what we want them to mean, but if you want to use it as evidence, we’ll let you have it!

      Now as far as all the 666 info you put…..lottery numbers, zip codes…..you have failed to do the one important thing; relate the number to his name (of which we challenge isn’t the name of the Antichrist, but the name of Adam). If you use the old paradigm that 666 refers to the name of the Antichrist, Obama is COMPLETELY out of consideration. Nor does he fit in with what we presented…the number of “a man” which is adam…..45.

      All Presidents ride in “the beast” limousine, even our current President, Donald Trump. If you read the first two parts of the series we even go into who the beast out of the sea is (and it isn’t a man per Daniel 7 and Revelation 13).

      Here are the first and second parts of the series:

      Part 1
      Part II

      Renegade = Traitor. How does this relate to the Antichrist?

      We’ve heard the “Yes We Can” backwards many times in the past but it isn’t proof of anything other than it sounds like “Thank you Satan” if you really want it to. <------ not a Biblical proof in and of itselfObama is pretty much history. He isn't the Commander in Chief of the world's most powerful military (The highest rank in U.S. military). He isn't the boastful little horn that we see in Trump every day on social media. He hasn't made statements that he doesn't need to repent because he tries to do good i.e. he isn't a sinner.....like Trump has done publicly. He does not appear to be a friend of Israel as the Antichrist will appear to be until he turns on her at the midpoint of the 70th Week; Obama was staunchly against Israel even during the 2008 election. These are things we see with Trump right now in real-time!Thanks again for reading and commenting!

    Thank you so much. I totally believe you. I want to add this: all the sons of Lamech in Genesis 4 have the same meaning as the sons of Trump.
    Jabal, yuval- both means great leaders. Eric en Donald -meaning leaders. Baron means fighter and Tubal Cain makes stuff for fighting.
    Ivanka means precious like Adah. Silla means dark ( comes from the Hebrew word salal) Melania means dark to. Like Lamech says: if anyone beats me I will beat him 77 times. Genesis 4:23. What said Trump in an interview: if anyone slams me in my face I punch him 7 times as hard in the face.
    He was augurated when he was 70 years,7 month and 7 days. Lamech was on earth short before the flood. Bad sign born on a blood moon. inaugurated on a blood moon. Blood moon is bad sign

    Time will tell…We do need to be aware and in prayer and in the word…so the mark received in the hand or forehead is 45? I had read somewhere a long time ago that if you calculate the number, that is take it to it lowest number you come up with 9. 6+6=12+6=18..1+8=9 The social security number 3 digits + 2 digits + 4 digits….3+2=5+4=9 We write it with the hand and most have it memorized…head. Can’t buy sell or trade without it….
    45…..4+5=9….just a thought….Great article

      “so the mark received in the hand or forehead is 45?”.

      If Trump turns out to be the little horn aka Antichrist, then the clue of 45 that we have uncovered is true. Will we see a literal use of the number 45 being put on people’s hands and foreheads; that’s debatable. We are taking a wait and see approach while still looking back over God’s Word.

      And yes, it is true that the break down of the number to the lowest form will bring you to 9.

      6 + 6 + 6 = 18 1 + 8 = 9
      6 x 6 x 6 = 216 2 + 1 + 6 = 9

      And as you noted, 4 + 5 = 9

      The number of days in the 70th Week is 2520 days or 2 + 5 + 2 + 0 = 9

      And 9 is the number of finality in the Bible…..with the most famous moment being when Jesus uttered “It is finished” at the 9th hour of the day on the Cross!

      Thank you for the comment (and reading!).
