Someone asked for the Hebrew meaning of the number 8. Here it is: New Beginnings, Super Abound.
---Dorothy on 12/8/09


Mel....The No.8 is used for a New Beginning
---Mike356 on 11/19/08


Anti-Christ has been working in the church for quiet some time. Many now are using the power that God gave them to do evil...Cursing, witchcraft, you name it. Many also have turned to Wicca after receiving knowledge from the bible. All these people robbed the bible that do so much evil today..Including Satan wanna Be's...

matt.24 verse 24 lets read and be thankful.
---faye on 10/24/08


The number of the beast is the number of a man. 2 Peter 2:12 and Jude 1:10 define a man who is like unto a brute beast. This is a man who turns the grace of God into lasciviousness and denies the Lord Jesus Christ. In other words, a man without God. A man without God has no other source but his natural affections. To be carnally minded (of or pertaining to the five natural senses) IS death. Death is the opposing force of life, who is Christ. Man can be pro-God but anti-Christ through unbelief.
---Linda_G. on 10/22/08




That is why we must "know this, that the old man is dead", reckon ourselves dead unto sin (by faith in His death) and alive unto God (by faith in His life), and then yield our members as instruments of righteousness. The unregenerate man cannot conceive this and the carnally minded man has yet to perceive it through the spirit. We (not I, but we) have the mind of Christ. It has been given to us through Christ. The mind of Christ is the mind of peace and humility. We have been given all things that pertain unto life and godliness. If it pertains to life, it has been given. We receive by faith.

ginger: "I am not quite sure so I am asking for some input on this to see what everyone thinks. If this is true, we need to prepare for what is coming next."

This is not some sort of guessing game. What does the Holy Spirit say about this? And, for the weaker Chrisitans, what does the Bible say about this. You can't be guessing when your eternal life is at stake.

The no.6 is the no. of man.One short of God's perfection which is represented by the no.7.

I don't know what to say except...all of you guys are right.
And thank you for this knowledge because I was completely ignorant of a lot of this.
On this note, has anyone thought about the fact that this is happening right now? How some preacher are telling people this. I think it is the prosperity message.

"Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666." Revelation 13:17,18

Come on, folks. The interpreation of this verse numbers the sands on the beach and maybe a handful of people have done so. There is certainly no harmony among today's Christians about the interpretations. But let's reason this out.

"...is A number of A MAN:" not man in general as in mankind, but one man. The next sentence tells you it's one man by using the pronoun "his." It's right there in black and white. Even a child can read this and nothing more like you folks are trying to impress using numerology and all other types of interpretations and calculations.
---Steveng on 10/20/08




Christianity is decidedly the "minority" when compared to the combined total of all other beliefs, unbeliefs, religions, etc., around the world. This fact refers to the statement of the "many" and the "few" as recorded in the Bible (Matt.7:13-14).
This is only one of a number of references to confirm what 666 means, and that is the "majority" (.666%)of mankind, as opposed to the "minority" referred to in (Zec.13:8-9).
To answer the question, YES, the number
"666" has relevence to Christianity.
---Al on 10/20/08


Yes.In Greek, the mark of the Antichrist is, chi + xi + digamma= cxf.
The Antichrist is, Nebuchadnezzar.
And the unholy trinity is number 666.
In Greek, the mark of God is, omega + pi + eta= wph.
The Christ is, Iesous.
And the holy trinity is number 888.
---Eloy on 10/20/08


Rev:-13:11-18 identifies with a false Man God who has the Mark666
---Mic on 10/20/08


Lacy hit it right on.

666 means Man replacing all aspects of god. The father the son and holy ghost.
This is the teaching of the new age church. You have the power to save yourself. Same sin as Adam and Eve. Same sin as Satan himself. Wanting to be God. The attempt at elevating yourself to God's level.
---chad on 10/19/08


Can anyone tell me what the number 8 means in Hebrew please. Thanks
---Mel on 1/9/08


Man was made on the 6th day. Therefore, 6 is the number of man. Why are there three sixes? 3 represents the trinity (father, son, and the holy spirit). When you use 3 sixes, you are replacing the trinity with man. The first six puts man in the FATHER'S position. The second six puts man in the SON'S position and the third six puts man in the HOLY SPIRIT'S position. This represents man taking the place of god. 666 is given to the beast because he is the ultamite being of man in it's sinful nature.

One of the oldest interpretations is that the two are unrelated. Nero was believed by many to be the Anti-Christ. He's now dead but "the spirit of anti-christ" will reign until Christ returns. The mark of the beast was believed to be materialism, (abandonment of the spirit for the flesh)embodied in Solomon who used his God-given intellect for financial gain (before his repentance) by charging the nations 666 talents for the right to "buy and sell" (trade) with the Kingdom of Israel.
---Greyrider on 11/6/07


But the Anti-christs number wont be in Greek, so 888 has no meaning. I was always under the impression that it was the hebrew letter-number code
---Jeremy on 11/4/07


I know i read somewhere that it was actually a mistranslation and has no meaning whatsoever

The number 666 is relevant to Christianity because all mortal men received this mark in the beginning creation on day 6, when the count for evening, morning, and day was 666 for the body, soul, and spirit of mankind created in the image of morning and likeness of God. This is written in the book, "The RC666 Bible Code". It answers the challenge in Revelation to calculate the number of the beast.
---Frank_Willis on 9/4/07


6 is the number of man, so 666 is a man fully devoted to selfish desires. the mark is already on many.

Revelation 13:18 says "...for it is the number of a man: His number is 666". 666 is the number of the Antichrist who is soon to appear on the scene.
---Helen_5378 on 10/20/06


It stands for the AntiChrist. N(nu)=50 + E(eta)=8 + B(beta)=2 + U(upsilon)=400 + C(kappa)=20 + H(eta)=8 + A(alpha)=1 + D(delta)=4 + N(nu)=50 + E(eta)=8 + Z(zeta)=7 + Z(zeta)=7 + A(alpha)=1 + R(rho)=100 = 666. Thus NEBUCHADNEZZAR= 666. (ref: Daniel 3; Matthew 24:15-22; Revelation 13 and Revelation 13:16-18). In contrast, JESUS in Greek, IESOUS= 8 8 8. Eight stands for eternity. And three together for the trinity. (ref: Acts 11:26; Genesis 4:11-15; 2 Chronicles 7:14; John 3:3; Ezekiel 9:4-6).

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
---Billy on 8/23/06


Alan of UK, Thats right. If God isn't working in us to overcome the beast within, we all could be antichrist. It all depends on whose sitting in our temple, on the throne of our heart.
---Billy on 8/23/06


Its amazing how many definitions of 666 there are. I could add a dozen more myself, but for what purpose? To confuse you more? God forbid. The best suggestion is to read the Bible from beginning to end, not a verse here and a verse there, for its the resume of God. The more you read, the more you build a solid relationship with God. Once your relationship congeals, he will reveal things to you not mentioned in the Bible for Satan know the Bible.
---Steveng on 8/23/06


Billy ... You appear to believe, as I do that 666 is not a mystic number, six hundred & sixty six, which leads to all these attempts to speel-count different names.
Just a symbol of a man who is wholly centred on man, with no inkling of God.
Makes a lot of sense.

greetings ,the 666 is the last three digits of a registry number.
---earl on 8/23/06


All numbers in the Bible have a symbolic meaning. 1=unity, 2=witness, 3=Spiritual completion, 4=The whole, 5=Grace through faith, 6=The number of man.
So if "six" is the number of man, and six being "three" times to make 666.
So 666 would be man in his completeness, and this is what antichrist is. He will be the fullness of sinfull man..

The numerical value 666 is used four times in scripture: 1st Kings 10:4, 2nd Chron 9:13, Ezra 2:13 and Rev 13:18.

The Revelation 13:18 reference appears 666 in most Greek manuscripts and 616 in others. Both are a numerical code [Not to be confused with Bible Code] reference to the Roman Emperor Nero.

This might be stupid, but I have always thought that it would somehow be a man(since man's # is 6) in body, mind, and soul(or spirit). I didn't really know how this could happen until I learned about cloning. Maybe it will be the first cloned human.

Has anyone else noticed that the word says their gold and silver shall not save them on that day? And noticed that 666 is the weight of silver given to Solomon? There may people trying to buy and sell the word of God on tv and in supercenters where the works of their hands and the thoughts of their mind are profitless and make an image unto yhe beast. Our precious Jesus cast out those who bought and sold doves.(the Spirit) Freely ye have received, freely give.

God created man on the sixth day. #6 is considered symbolic of man. Then God created woman for man, then God gave the woman child birth. Which completed "mankind". So 666 symbolizes men, women, and children or all of "MANKIND". Hey, not as far out as some of these other answers.

Alan, yes they did. i have not recorded the Hebrew numeration, but if i recall correctly when i researched this, that i remember it was starkedly similar to the Greeks numeration. The Hebrew alphabet= aleph, beth, gimel, daleth, he, waw, zayin, heth, teth, yodh, kaph, lamedh, mem, nun, samekh, ayin, pe, sadhe, qoph, resh, sin, shin, taw.

Revelation 13:16-18
All who do not worship the image of the beast receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. The number of the beast is 666, which is the number of man. No man can buy or sell unless he has the mark of the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
I think the church (Christ's bride) will be taken out before these events.
---Ulrika on 12/30/05


Eloy ... I find this difficult. You say the numbers are equivalents of the letters in the Greek alphabet. But surely it was not until about 2000 years ago that the Israelites came into contact with the Greeeks ... they would have had an earlier alphabet ... did that have number equivalents? I don't think the OT history of Nebucabanezzar was written in Greek?
---alan8869_of_UK on 12/30/05


Alan, before Noah's day in the first millenual of man, our ancestors started the alphabet in order to record for future generations. Each letter was a word which meant something and had a defined number. The Greek with Numeration is as follows: alpha=1, beta=2, gamma=3, delta=4, epsilon=5, digamma=6, zeta=7, eta=8, theta=9, iota=10, kappa=20, lambda=30, mu=40, nu=50, xi=60, omicron=70, pi=80, rho=100, sigma=200, tau=300, upsilon=400, phi=500, chi=600, psi=700, omega=800. BTW Jesus in Greek is IESOUS=888.

The number, 666, has always represented evil. It is also considered "mans number". What or who it refers has never been determined - although a lot of guess work has none into trying to solve it's meaning. It mentioned in Revelation 13:18

NEBUCHADNEZZAR= 666:

In John's time, counting the number of one's name was common practice, since letters were used for numbers. Count, for instance, the number of the pope's official title (Vicarius Filii Dei) using the letters assigned as values in Roman numerals, rembering that U=V=5.

My GUESS (& that's all this is): In Biblical numerology the number three stands for the trinity of the Godhead; six is the number of man. 666 COULD BE man trying to make himself God. There are many areas this can be seen to exist today. Some evolutionists have all the answers and have eliminated the need for God. Some churches have pronounced rules of conduct that are un, or anti, Biblical.

Revelation is John's final book. He speaks of world political systems in the "end of days" that pounce on organized religion of all types. This "beast" carries the number 666. Six is symbolic of imperfection. Seven is "perfect. Therefore, Six, raised 3 times yields 666, a direct quote from Revelation. Hollywood movies have used this reference many times to denote "unholiness" or Satanic intent.
