The great deception
Wisdom! Stand up and be counted
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.
First of all this use of wisdom in this Greek word is sophia, this form of wisdom is used to solve a problem with reason or deduction, investigative skills, by solving a mystery or riddle, something that is not obvious and out front. Philosophy comes from this form of sophia that is used.
Count means to sum up by adding, in math or reason, used as a voting system by adding a colored stone in a urn that symbolizes a sum a a collected choice.
In joining wisdom with understanding, literally using the mind, thinking with intellect to conclude something.
In understanding how this part of the verse should be understood and read, is “with wisdom, here comes a riddle or mystery to be solved”. Not a mathematical equation.
After this post there will be no more mystery.
It is important to know when there is a solving of mathematical problems or a Philosophical riddle, there is a difference. This verse makes it very clear that there is no math involved to clear up the sum of all things. It is a mystery of a deeper meaning. A decision needs to be made. Let numbers be numbers and let wisdom be wisdom. However one can have a metaphorical meaning to the other.
Now we need to understand what this “number” represents. Is this a complex math or a complex meaning. Nothing complex about it if we understand what this number actually resembles.
What does this number represent?
In the Greek this word is arithmos, we need to understand if this number represents people it translates to a multitude. When used in this manner changes the whole perspective of what this passage is being referenced to.
This passage could only be translated one of two ways, if a numbering system is used then its refering to a number. If describing a number of people then multitude is used then there is no number calculation needed, but a multitude, (in the context of this passage keep in mind what the flood represented?)
So if the “mark 666” is actually a number then it’s simple addition, if it is not then it’s simple wisdom.
This passage should read, “Here is a riddle, (problem or mystery) to be understood, determine (decide to be counted(what color of pebble will be used that represents your choice) the multitude of the beast: for it is a multitude of a man”.
Or will it just the number value?
We talked about there being only two marks in the previous study and what a mark represents.
So now we understand that the number of this mark is not going to be a number but something else, and we will find this out shortly.
Since we know that the Beast is Islam in previous studies, the son of perdition is Muhammad and the multitude are his followers then we need to conclude that the multitude is Islam.
But is it a number?
First of all, we had to understand that this mark was a seal, or a sign.
Will a follower of Islam take on such a mark under the skin or tattooed on the surface of the skin. Well, I don’t think so. In knowing Islam they will never make a image of Muhammad and we have seen in France how Islamist reacts to this. They will not be tattooed by tradition. So is this tracking system be allowed under the Islamic flag? Not!
So we have to conclude it’s something that rests on the arm or the forehead and not made into a permanent mark on the skin. I covered this previously in part one.
Now lets look at what is shown in the Vaticanus codex from 350AD of this passage in question, keeping in mind that this comes from a careful copy of a copy of the original that were handed down copies of the one written by Johns penmanship.
This familularity was discovered by Walid Shoebat, who was a PLO Terrorist now a Christian evangelist. His web site is by his last name .com.
Let’s take a good look at what this 666 looks like in the greek Codex?
I would like to point out, you wont find this in a Greek interlinier, its been doctored to clarify the assumed number. Chi xi Stigma is 666.
The lower case Greek letters for Chi Xi Sigma are as follows:
Below: the condensed Islamic creed, shown to the right, literally means (reading right to left): “In the Name of Allah,” followed by the symbol of crossed swords. Please remember those marks mentioned earlier. One of characters was in the form of an “X” which in this case is the crossed swords. Keeping in mind where this mark was to rest on the body. This is in the Hebrew is one of the Tav progressions, a mark?
Then observe what the Greek text for 666 (shown to the right) looks like the Islamic creed except that the word, “Allah,” is presented vertically, with the crossed swords to the left of it.
Now in looking at the above image shows like a puzzle that needs to be rearranged to fit the word for Allah, when the repositioning is done.
Ask your self? Is it possible that the Apostle John, while receiving his divine revelation, did not see Greek letters, but instead was supernaturally shown Arabic words and an Islamic symbol, which he then faithfully recorded? Remember that this was presented as a problem to be solved as riddle.
On the Zola Levitt program, Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist now Christian evangelist, said that when he saw the Greek symbol that is translated in the Bible as 666, he immediately read it as the Arabic character “Bismillah” (some spell Bismilla) which means “in the name of Allah.” (Though it looks more like the character for “Allah”).
This is a short YouTube video of Walid Shoebat explaining his finding.
Coincidence? I don’t think so! There are some that tries to refute this argument. However they have no reasonable explanation to their claim other than the same old what we have been hearing for decades.
In the beginning, after questioning the last days narrative, with some research, this is what I was able to came up with. These are not necessarily new findings. I can not take any credit nor do I need any.
Using this blog as a platform of what the Holy Spirt lead me in understanding and what I was questioning. I felt I needed to share and document what I was finding.
I may add more to this post at a later time or do edits on spelling, grammar or sentence structures. If I have any new findings I will post them in a different post.
Much of my study comes from notes I’ve been compiling from different sources, points and outlines.
