People's Bible Notes for Revelation 13:18


Re 13:18 THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast. Re 13:17 speaks of "the name of the beast". It has, then, a name. It also speaks of the number of its name. Its name, then, is some number. We wish to discover its name, and if we can count the number, we will find its name. "The number of the beast", that is, the "number of its name" (Re 13:17) is the number of a man, and that number is "six hundred and sixty-six".

Discussion for Revelation 13

  • Word
    Vs. 1 and almost all the water and seas you read about in Revelation you should go to Revelation 17 vs 15 because the waters are the people. In verse one here we have a sea of people that the beast rises up from. It's good to know Revelation 17 because it explains a lot of symbolism of what is being read.

    Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? For after all these things do the Gentiles seek: for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

    The only thing that Rome will have to do with the 2 and a half months Satan will be here acting a role of the True Christ is what the rest of the world will be doing. DECEIVED. Satan comes to deceive the whole world and looks like the Lamb of God with powers given to him to fulfill his role as false messiah. The dragon is coming for half of 5 months and when he gets here buy food and pay rent fast

    The most important thing you have to do is understand the book of Daniel first. It is the key for revelations. Same beasts from a different vantage point in time. If you understand the 70 wks, it started in 457 BC. So did the 2300 days(years) which ended in 1844 when scroll of Dan. was unlocked- at appointed time like 70 wks, which was 490 yrs(7x70). All the lies is Babylon. Still about Rome folks
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    Beast out of the sea is from populated area(nations,peoples,kindreds and tongues) and has crowns. Killed saints. Dark ages Rome/Europe. The earth beast rises( about same time 1 st falls) out if an unpopulated area, has no crowns and then also rules world. It will adopt a system of 1st one, image- Senate, tyrannical oppression and commandment trampling self righteousness. Any guesses? God help us.
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    Everything in its proper time frame indeed. I don't the the antichrist is going to baptise with the Holy Spirit Tongues do any of you? God will send Elijah to baptise His chosen elect Zion and be brought into our Blessed Lords sheepfold as His Holy Word has spoken, Glory Amen. Calling Elijah the dragon comes straight out of the Vatican itself. Their not going to stop my Abba Dad
