The Number “666” Bonds the Person to the Beast

Revelation 13:18

Let him that hath understanding calculate 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 phrase, “Let him that hath understanding calculate the number of the beast…” is letting us know that the beast is not spiritual in nature nor is it of the human spirit. It is artificial and worldly. That is exactly how Satan operates, he sets out to destroy the Spirit of God and the human spirit. We live in a technological age that controls every aspect of the lives of people around the world. Space technology was seen by Ezekiel when in a vision he saw the space shuttle, the space station, and the space satellites, click here to read what Ezekiel says about space technology and satellites. Technology has become intertwined with people, and we can safely say that the number of the beast is the number of the man.

The beast and the person are one-in-the-same because the image of the beast is within people and has been given life to speak through us. The same as the image of Christ being within Believers and we become one with Him. Satan copies everything that God does. The word, “man,” in the phrase “the number of the man” refers to “mankind,” or humanity because, “All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world” Revelation 13:18. Worship means to worship the image of the beast which is within a person. The number of the beast/man is what bonds the person and the beast, which is “666.” That represents blasphemy towards God (6), discarding the need for Jesus Christ (6), and trampling on the Holy Spirit (6). We break the bond with the beast when we believe God, acknowledge our need for Jesus Christ, and embrace the Holy Spirit.

The Bible consistently gives human traits to the beast and bonds the two together. The descriptions given in the scriptures below includes the head, eyes, mouth, hand, breathe, and life.

  • Has Breathe and a Mouth to Speak: Breathe is what gives us the ability to speak by the air in the lungs, along with a voice box, and a tongue. The image of the beast is given breath with a mouth to speak. “The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak.” Revelation 13:15 Again, Satan tries to imitate everything that Jesus Christ and God does by giving the breath of life. Speaking of Jesus Christ, “And with that He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” John 20:22 And God breathed life into Adam, “Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” Genesis 2:7
  • Eyes and Mouth Like a Human Being: This horn had eyes like the eyes of a human being and a mouth that spoke boastfully.” Daniel 7:8
  • Human and False God are Twins: This is found in Acts 28:11-13 where it mentions the ship sailing towards the world capital having the sign of the twins, one a human and one a god. The name of the human is Castor, and the name of the god is Pollux. The human part would be the flesh-and-blood person while the god part would be the beast. As twins, they share a common bond, like the image of the beast with the person.
  • Beast and the Person the Same: The person is not only meshed with the beast but also shares the beast’s “666” character. The “666” is what holds the bond together. The bond between the person and the beast is brought out in Revelation 17:3-6. The beast is scarlet, and the person sitting on the beast is dressed in scarlet. It would be near impossible to distinguish one from the other, or where one left off and the other began. Also, it uses wealth and has a cup filled with abominations which is the “666” of the beast being revealed through a person. The purple represents treating people like royalty, or like a god, if they welcome the beast into their physiology, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. “There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries.”
  • Technology Blends the Person with the Mark of the Beast: The beast is filled with blasphemy against God, discards Jesus Christ, and tramples on the Holy Spirit. That is exactly what is seen in every city around the world as people are living by the mark and the image of the beast. The “666” bonds the beast to the person. “This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.” Revelation 13:18 By using the term “calculate,” we are aware that the bond of the beast and person is not spiritual but is artificial/technological, like a puppet or human robot.
  • Our Body is the Temple of God Where It Sets. “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16 and speaking of the beast “It opposes and exalts itself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that it sits in the temple of God, showing itself that it is God.”

“….to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan’s so-called deep secrets,“
‘I will not impose any other burden on you, except to hold on to what you have until I come.’”
“I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.”
Revelation 2:24-25, 3:11
