Interesting thoughts from “anomymous” about 666

I did not write what you are about to read.  It was written in 2007 and I found it HERE

I am not sharing to say it is accurate, (though my gut says it probably is) only sharing it because it is interesting to me and I thought it might also be interesting to my readers.  Would love any insight any of you would like to add in comments below!

666 is not a number!

by Anonymous – 5/09/07 1:56 AM People are so easily led astray when the key ingredient (ie., wisdom see: Rev 13:18) is lacking.

In the first place; “666”, or more correctly “600 60 6”, or more precisely in Greek “Chi Xi Stigma”, is not a number. And if you find this hard to believe, then let me explain.

Rev 13:18 starts with the phrase, “Hode este sophia”, or “here is wisdom”. It is the colloquial way of saying, “Here is a riddle”. And if there ever was a riddle in the history of humanity, this is it. It is the mother of all riddles.

But what is a riddle? Quite simply, “a riddle is a phrase that can be read in more than one way”. Grammatically (or logically) it is called an, “amphiboly”.

Here is Rev 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.”

If we dismiss the fact that this is a riddle and simply apply the most rudimentary grammar to the phrase, then we will conclude that we are talking about a number, and that we must count the number. And that answer will then reveal “The Beast”.

Obviously we have. Endlessly, in fact. And, (also) it has not so far revealed who or what “The Beast” is. And that is because the concept of numbers is only one half of the riddle. It is the half that humanity has been trying to re-explain (like a hamster on a wheel) for nearly two millennia, chasing our tails! And that is because, the phrase also means something else!

And therein lays the riddle.

But, if it is not counting a number, then what is it? Well let’s start by dissecting those to operative terms, “count” and “number” that cause the current interpretation of the phrase, and provide the only opportunity for the amphiboly to exist in the riddle in the first place.

Count, in the original Greek is the word “psephizo”. It means literally, “To cast a pebble into an urn, as to vote. Or simply, ‘to determine or decide'”. When not talking of numbers, the most common use of the word is “to decide”.

Number, in the original Greek is the word “arithmos”. Arithmos means, “a number”, “any number”, “some number”, “some” or “a multitude”. When referring to people, the word is more correctly translated as “multitude”.

Here is Rev. 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.”

Here is the answer:

“Here is a riddle. Let him that hath understanding determine the multitude of the beast; for it is a multitude of men, and [this] multitude is chi xi stigma.”

But what is “chi xi stigma” ?

In Greek, it means the numbers 600, 60 and 6.

But John was told in Rev 1:19 [to], “Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;”

So John wrote what he saw. What John saw was not “666”. What he saw was, “Chi Xi Stigma”.

There is a copy of that fragment of text in the Codex Vaticanus that dates from 340AD. And shows what the “Chi Xi Stigma” looks like in original handwritten Greek.

It can be located on the web in various places as, cxs.gif. Go look at it.

That phrase, (Chi Xi Stigma) is a multi-lingual palindrome. A palindrome is a word that read the same backwards and forwards. The Bible has a few of them that have had significance in prophecy throughout the ages. But to my knowledge, this is the only multi-lingual palindrome in existence.

The two languages are Greek and Arabic. Which is fascinating because the word that Chi Xi Stigma spells in Arabic didn’t even exist when John wrote Revelation! And I believe it is a very explicit example of the true and prophetic nature of the revelation itself.

So, what does Chi Xi Stigma spell in Arabic? It spells the word “Bismallah”. And Bismallah means, “In the Name of Allah”.

“Here is a riddle. Let him that hath understanding determine the multitude of the beast: for it is a multitude of a men; and his multitude [is] in the name of Allah.”

And what is the significance?

Islam is the only distinctly anti-Christian religion to have ever existed on this planet.

Islam is the beast.


The remarks above remind me of this video which I have shared previously:

Allah is 666- Walid Shoebat

Perhaps “Anonymous”, in this case, IS Walid Shoebat!?!?

    • Well, lonecar, that was an interesting video on WordPress, and article about the chip on Blogspot. God has a mind so much higher than ours, that He was capable of orchestrating events, which would be written about, and serve as examples or typology. I believe the loaves and fishes account was a real event, but I also concur that the principles laid out on the video are probably valid. The second half of the video, on the creation, I am not sure if I ascertained the point or the message. I believe in a literal 24 hour day of creation, but that a day and a thousand years are “all the same” to God in that He exists outside of the confines of time. As for the chip, the conclusions you state are insightful, and probably accurate, and yet I still believe there will be a real mark and it will be “in” the hand or forehead. I agree also that the King James Bible “translation” is superior to others, and that others, in each new “incarnation” grow more and more corrupted with each new “edition”. Slow, over time, subtle. Satan has had plenty of time to work with, but now knows it’s growing short. Thank you for sharing the video!

  3. Huge intake of breath at the end there. While I believe the antichrist will be in the form of a man and not an ideology (he is thrown into hell after all, along with the false prophet), evidence of Islam playing a huge role is increasing. Some prophecy folk think the wars of Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38/9 will “get rid of” Islam but I disagree. Converts are popping up all over the world. It is indeed possible that the al Mahdi will be the antichrist. I reblogged a post today that reported the Sanhedrin are considering the possibility of messiah being al Mahdi.
    Interesting stuff indeed!
