Discussion for Revelation 13

    Dear Ben; I found something very interesting, that you also may enjoy studying. In the original Greek Text 666 is three different letters, one of which is now obsolete, but were written to indicate the number six hundred sixty six. I looked up the archaic meanings of each of those letters, and of their meanings, and found them to point rather to Over All Bounds, as of casting away all restraint.

    The Vav is the 6th letter of the Hebrew alphabet. It represents Man and the number 6 . In is pronounces Waw and it is where our letter W originates. The beast is the Worldwide web from which it shall breath life into its own image, which will be able to speak, and command people to worship it. No one will be able to buy or sell without taking its mark or the number of its name. WWW 666

    Donald W. Revelation is a fascinating book given to us for our learning. It had difficult parts, but what is intended for our learning today isn't impossible to know with study. Most of the book ready came to pass as is stated in first chapters things at hand and will short come to pass. I suggest Introduction
