“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 13:18.
The number is not 666. That number came through the power of the mind. Through knowledge, a number even a child can deduce if he knows that a “score” is equal to twenty. The true number came through the power of the heart. Through understanding that came by way of revelation in 1960. The number 666, assigned to the scripture over millennia, may point to physical things, as the number six pertains to the physical. But the true number has seven digits, the number seven pertaining to the spiritual—the physical event associated with this seven-digit number revealing the spiritual event that has taken place within the heart of man, giving power to the beast without.
“Six hundred threescore and six.” Six hundred (600) threescore (60) and (0) six (6): 6006006. Left to right, or right to left, it is the same number: six million, six thousand, and six, the number of Jews put to death in the Holocaust through the power of the first beast. Every soul accounted for, never to be forgotten!
