666 Sanctified: The Beast Was Fake News
The number 666 has been sanctified and this should bring sighs of relief to all those who were wary at the number of the beast fearing it symbolised satanic forces. It has transpired that the number of the beast was pointing at the numbers of animals, which were sacrificed in sacred ceremonial offerings in the Old Testament. In turn, the numbers of those sacrificial animals harboured a great secret because they proved to be the indices of a secret calendar matrix, which mapped out biblical history culminating with the predicted Messiah. 666 was the compass to point the way to this hidden knowledge. Set among the vials of wrath, multiple headed monsters, four fierce horsemen and venomous damnations, the reference to 666 in the Book of Revelation read as follows: “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.” ( Revelations. Ch. 13:18)

Here Is Wisdom
Looking at things rationally, the phrase ‘ here is wisdom’ prompted of King Solomon who was renowned for his wisdom. The second phrase state: “let him who has understanding”. There was a similar phrase relating to Solomon in the first Book of Kings where it is stated that: “God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceedingly much.” The two phrases were comparable but one needs to ask: was Solomon the intended target? To find the answer, the number 666 was entered into a biblical search engine and lo and behold it stopped with King Solomon where it stated: “Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred threescore and six talents of gold.” (First Kings 10:14) The number 666 indicated that Solomon was the target and the gold talents gave the notion of a treasure trail. The search engine next stopped in the second Book of Chronicles where it repeated about the weight of gold that came to Solomon as ‘six hundred and threescore and six talents of gold’. Thus, a firm link to Solomon had been established. It did not take long to find out why 666 was the number of a man because the search engine stopped in the Book of Ezra where it listed the number of men who returned from exile in Babylon.
