Tomorrow is 06-06-06, and with it comes a lot of talk of the Devil and so on. What is the significance of 666? In the Book of Revelations, the Apostle John describes a person that arises during the last days who is the epitome of evil. That person is called the "anti-christ". God revealed the name of the person to John, but forbade him to reveal the name. So John tells us in an indirect way, he gives us the number of the name of the person. Number of the name? That is, the number of the name as in "numerology"... The ancients believed that your name influenced your fate and to predict your fate, they assigned each letter of your name to a number A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4,..., J=10, K=20, L=30, ...., S=100, T=200, U=300, ... Z=700 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_of_the_Beast_(numerology) According to the Book of Revelation, during the final days, no one will be able to buy or sell without the "mark of the beast" which is thought by some to be the number 666. The Book of Revelation also states that those who take the "mark" of the beast on their head or on their hand will be condemned to Hell. Over the centuries, there has been a controversy as to what this all means. Some contend that the "final days" have happened. That is, that the Book of Revelation describes the persecution of the Church by the Romans and that the Beast is one of the Roman Emperors. Others contend that the final days are yet to be. Some believe that the mark of the beast is a chip implant, a bar code, perhaps a credit card? P.S. If you're concerned, I did the math, no, it can't be a major credit card... VISA =510, MasterCard = 534, Discover = 671, American Express = 1,169, and Diner's Club= 593 so don't burn those credit cards! P.P.S. And eBay users, you're in the clear, too, PayPal = 872.
