Skip to comments.The Meaning of Six hundred and Sixty Six (666)

666 has meaning behind it. John the Revelator was Hebrew. He would have known that each Hebrew letter of the alphabet (which is a number too) has a meaning and/or symbol to it. In the scripture it was written as six hundred and sixty six. Not 666. I find the meaning of this is to be "in the end times, a head will emerge, Satan (snake), and will hook people into sin(disbelief in my book). Allow me to show you how it works by viewing this:
I believe that the letters used to write six hundred and sixty six would be the letter Tav because it equals 400, the letter Resh because it equals 200 and these two added together would equal six hundred. The letter Samech would be used to represent 60, the letter Vav would be used to represent the number 6. So, John would have used the letters Tav, Resh, Samech, and Vav (Vav can be written vav or waw depending on some people translate Hebrew) to represent six hundred and sixty six. Tav has a meaning of "end of existence". Resh has a meaning of "emerging head". Samech has a meaning of Satan or snake. And Vav has a meaning of hook and sin. In any case, you can find through these letters and symbols how John would have used Tav, Resh, Samech, and Vav to represent Satan and his prophetic future.
Well, there you have it!
666 is symbolic and real. Symbolic as in the number of man, born on the 6th day. It is the evil or human-evil reflection of the trinity: Satan, Anti-Christ and false prophet. It is incomplete and unholy.
666 is real in that the number of the Anti-Christ will be a multiplication of the Hebrew letters of the name of the Anti-Christ.
I thought it was for Nero?
It means you got two hits in three at bats.
666 represents a triple failure to be 777 (God).
I’ve heard that the number 888 is representative of God, specifically Christ.
All sorts of variations. John was writing in Greek, ancient Greek and over time words changed meaning. People try to plug in names or use 666 from other Biblical languages to find out who this person is supposed to be. IMHO
Shouldn't that be Waa, Waa, Waa? The sound of the democrats on November 5?
Are you sure it would have been written in Greek. John was Hebrew. Why do you say Greek (just asking not questioning)?
So satan will come as WAW-WAW-WAW?
I think for Nero to be 666 it would have to be written Neros.
The number was written in Greek letters and so inspired, not Hebrew or Aramaic. The letters are chi, xi and stigma (χξϛ).
ἑξακόσιοι ἑξήκοντα ἕξ
I wonder about the Greek, because in the begging of Revelation Christ said, I am Alpha and Omega. In Hebrew it would have been Alef and Tav which has the meaning of OX and Cross. To me, He said I am the sacrificial Ox at the Cross the beginning and the end. Hebrew brings more meaning to me, but I may be wrong. That is why I started this thread.
I think they sound like that no matter what day it is.
