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
    If anyone thinks the ones chosen before the foundations of this earth age can stand against the antichrist for 3 and a half years when the rest of the world loves and will kill for him because sugar daddy is paying all their bills they are crazy because God shorten it to 5 months and that's for the elects sake not the world because they are happy worshipping their rock but we wait for our ROCK.

    The 5 mos isn't literal and is long past. Rev. is done chronologically and you have to understand what a chiasm is, the literary writing style of the day to get when the time periods change. All these prophecies use a day for a literal year just like in Daniel ,which is needed to unlock Revelations AND fills in all the blanks. Futurism came from the beast- Rome herself to take eyes off her- really

    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.
  • Word
    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
  • 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
