What does 666 mean to you? This morning I awoke with this thought on my mind. 666 = the beast in a dream of destruction, The Ego.
So how is 666 presented in the Bible:
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 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.” [Revelation 13:16-18 King James Version (KJV)] And later in Revelation 12:9 “So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him……Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever”
WOW!!! SCARRY. Then I asked Google, the library in the cloud, to see what it said:
“The number 6 is significant in the Bible because it is the number of Man, the number of imperfection. It is a human number. It implies man’s existence sans God, sans Christ. … Thus, number 6 in the Bible is related to man and his imperfections or shortcomings.” and
“The beast is said to have “a human number” in that the represented governments are of a human origin rather than spirit entities. The number 666 is said to identify “gross shortcoming and failure in the eyes of Jehovah”, in contrast to the number 7, which is seen as symbolizing perfection.”
Man, Man, Man or Ego, Ego,Ego the replacement of the Holy Trinity with the Ego. WOW! Ego: Edging God Out.
And yet, my studies remind me :
“The Lifting of the veil
Forget not that you came this far TOGETHER. And it was surely NOT the ego that led you here. No obstacle to peace can BE surmounted through ITS help. IT does not open up its secrets, and
bid you look at them, and go BEYOND them. IT would not have you see its weakness and learn it has NO power to KEEP you from the truth. The Guide Who brought you here REMAINS with you,
and when you raise your eyes, you WILL be ready to look on terror with no fear at all. But first, lift up your eyes and look upon each other in innocence, born of COMPLETE forgiveness of each other’s illusions, and through the eyes of faith, which see them not.” (ACIM T 19 L 1.)
MERRY CHRISTMAS – Christ is re-borne (Remembered) through FORGIVNESS.
God Bless Ciao
