666 The Beast and The Antichrist.
There is a lot of fear and speculation surrounding the topic of 666. We all know that it is the Anti Christ. The beast has a mark of 666. What does that mean? To find out and go beyond the urban myth and popular belief. I did a lot of research! I dug a bit into numerology to see what those numbers symbolized in that context. Checked astro-theology Biblical references to it Hindu and Buddhist references as well as Kabbalistic views on the number 666 The Beast or Antichrist.
Guess what I found out?
That there is a lot of fear and speculation surrounding the topic of 666! LOL
Some say it is A man and point to a long list of candidates, others say it is all mankind while still others say all kinds of things from it’s the sun, to being God “Himself”! The last pointing again to the Sun as a symbol of God the giver of light and life.
But there did seem to be a running theme throughout the majority these speculations. That symbolically the number six represents in-completion or being less than whole.
Since throughout history no one seems to be able to come up with any definitive answer, I guess we have to just go with belief. Which I really personally have a distaste for in case you haven’t noticed. But I digress! Some things are just unknowable with any certainty. CRAP! Lol But to stay congruent we CAN believe based on as many facts and clues as we can find! That makes me feel better. 😉
Based on my studies of many different religions and mythology etc I’ll give you my opinion what 666, The Beast, and The Antichrist seem to point to.
To me; It appears that it points to a conglomeration of things as we have seen. But to be more specific; since the number six is mentioned three times 6+6+6=18
Most ancient numerologists will tell you that all numbers reduce to 1-9 so 18 becomes 9. Do a little bit of math with the number 9. I know we are talking about 666 but as we see it adds to 18 which reduces to 9 several was 1+8=9 or 18 divided by 2=9! 9×9=72 7+2=9! So no matter what happens with the number 9 we always end up back where we started! At 9!
Through a little research I have found that 9 represents man in a bound state of consciousness. In other words; trapped in his ego mind, or if you prefer trapped by Satan. Either way you slice it it is a mark of being a “Beast” or “Antichrist”. Everywhere you look in any scripture regardless of religion, mythology, or really any story we ever hear! We find one thing! Proof that we are trapped in an Antichrist state of being-ness that needs to be overcome! Jesus says Follow me. Buddha teaches The “Middle Way” and Non attachment to self as a means to overcome this “trap” we all experience.
We hear we must be “Born Again” and all religions have a path to overcome our beastly Antichrist like nature!
The Bible says in Matt 7:13-14 “Enter the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the path that leads to destruction But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only few find it.”
Buddha says “I teach the way to immortality” Which is EXACTLY what Jesus taught! Eternal life!
If we would just stop to look at the PRICIPLES of these teachings and get over the stories wrapped around them. I have personally found one theme! GO within yourself! Look t your Beastly Antichrist nature! Notice that it is there! How it causes you to suffer or cause suffering.
Even 12 Step programs teach this! To over come a problem you have to first be WILLING (God’s Will) to see it in yourself ONLY and take actions to repair or restore the CHRIST like nature that lies dormant within each of us little beasts that walk the earth! I’d like someone to volunteer to see how many times the Bible makes references to any form of “Holiness within” or “I in you and you in me” “Born again” or any thing that gives a clue about such topics. I’m guessing It would be an overwhelming task! Because the WHOLE BOOK makes references to this is some way! ALL religions POINT to the CHRIST! Only the names and stories have been changed to protect us from the truth! So we have a reason to point at each other as the beast. Instead of pointing at each other as The Christ or Buddha or what ever! The LABLE doesn’t matter! The LOVE does!!
The “Libby’s Libby’s Libby’s on the label label label” is Still Soup! Even if it says CAMPBELLS!
I’ve written a Poem I hope you will enjoy. But most of all I hope you can learn something from it! I have! Feel free to share it if you like as long as it is kept in tact in it’s entirety and credit given.
The Human Beast
“I’ve set about to find myself”, such a silly notion!
A drop of water looks about, trying to find the ocean!
Water water everywhere! But not a drop to drink!
Ideas and thoughts surround me, yet I don’t know how to think?!
Deep inside we try to hide, and say that we’re not there.
Then weep and cry and often die believing no one cares.
The human beast to say the least, is such a silly creature!
It looks about so full of doubt, it missed its finest feature!
So full of fear, which it holds so dear. it fails to find it’s gift!
The power inside it tries to hide would give it such a lift!
But instead it looks,
in poems and books
but never sees inside.
The fear that buries the love it carries beneath its foolish pride!

Bill Donahue Is a favorite of mine. Here is his take on it:
The video Below has Great research! But points a finger at the Vatican. (Blaming and disowning the beast and the Christ within) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgHoVZhTkI4&feature=youtube_gdata_player
A Rabbi’s point of view
A final special note.
The triple use of any Biblical number or idea, always points to something that should be paid special attention to. IE. The Trinity as being three times the concept of God.
