666 An amazing video from a mathematician about where we are. A video is about the math of 666

[quote] the author of Revelations had been forced to flee his home by the Romans, and would have recently seen a wave of state-sanctioned violence and hostility against (what we would now call) Christians, also at the hands of the Romans. In charge of both these catastrophes was the Emperor Nero, who, despite being dead by the time Revelations was written, many people were convinced was about to come back at any time, like a kind of evil Ancient Elvis. Could the “Beast” be referring to Nero?

Well guess what: “Caesar Nero” translated into Hebrew is נרון קיסר – or, to spell it out letter-by-letter, nun-resh-vav-nun qof-samek-resh. Each of these letters has a value in Hebrew numerals:
Nun-resh-vav-nun qof-samek-resh becomes 50+200+6+50+100+60+200.
If we add up the values of the letters in “Caesar Nero,” then, we get … that’s right: 666.

“John would have wanted his readers to understand that,” Pagels explained. “That number, which is couched in a mysterious code, would be understood to his readers as the name of one of those emperors who destroyed his people.”

So not a real beast; not the antichrist; just a particularly anti-Christian Emperor who had really screwed over the writer of Revelations – and who apparently might come back at any moment, so you’d better not piss him off.

“No one wants to write a book under imperial persecutions saying, 'The root of all evil is Nero Caesar,'” added Watts in the Numberphile video. “You're not going to spell that out.”

@SpiritualMan The entire Bible is about Jesus saving us from death because of our sins, and he is coming in our generation any day.
@Carazaa This is the but the entire Bible is not this book of prophesy. Revelation is "this book of prophesy". Many are saying, and I agree with putting the most weight on the 66 books, but then studying others in light of the 66, and comparing. Some Apocryphal books could have errors not because the originals weren't inspired but spotty manuscript transmission over the millennial, not as well preserved as the 66 books which God saw fit to be the base level for our faith anyway. Not sure though. Enoch has hundreds of verses mirrored in both the Old and New Testaments. Including the one from Jude. Ya Jude paraphrased it but Jude said Enoch prophesied it, therefore that verse in Enoch is prophesy.

In the Book of Adam and Eve God tells them that in the future He will come down, take on human flesh , and shed His blood for their sin.

That is a parallel of the seed of the woman crushing the head of the serpent in Genesis.
@Carazaa By the way, Elohim means gods in Hebrew. Yahweh means GOD alone. Elohim can mean God, but also angels, fallen angels, demons, departed human spirits, and any other spiritual entity that I missed in that list. The context of how the word Elohim is used in the OT makes that clear. So there are many Elohim, but only one Yahweh, the most high, in the form of the Trinity.

Normally I would leave this alone because its you. But I am obliged to point out that the original texts point to "The Mark of the Beast" (Not the number) and that the original was 3 "6" shaped symbols arranged with thei tails all meeting in the centre and had no numerical meaning. Which kind of takes the steam out of this whole theory, even if you were inclined to believe. Now all this is using the same bible you use, just an older edition where the printers werent so lazy.😷
@Carazaa I do appreciate your approach on some things, but in other ways you do get wildly extreme in your positions, wild swings in ways that I feel the bible does not.

@SpiritualMan OK well you are entitled to your opinion, but God is very clear that he is coming back and has told us the signs of the last generation, as well as the timeline since Adam by name, 6000 years (6 days going into the day 7 of rest) and 2000 years (2 Godly days since He rose going into day 3)) Jesus said I will rise in 3 days. A thousand days are like a day to God and God is not slow to keep his promise ([b][big]2 Peter 3:3)[/big][/b]
@SpiritualMan I should reply to your 6000 year theory. I understand it, but I am not 100 percent sure it is how God is timing the End Times or that the End Times will look the way we have been taught.

This guy is nuttier than a fruitcake! 😖

@SpiritualMan It does indeed and a little bit of crazy too, it's not an easy job but that's why some of us loved doing it, most of us in fact wouldn't want to be anything else! 😊
spjennifer · 56-60, T
@Carazaa Thank you, but that wasn't my point, many of those in foreign Countries don't even know who Jesus was, nor that he existed so what of them? Just because they are ignorant of his existence doesn't mean they aren't deserving of redemption or that they are evil just because they aren't Christian or "Saved". It's not an exclusive club where only those who repent are saved is what I meant. I'm not trying to be offensive but I can't agree with that belief system if that's the case.

@spjennifer OK I get that, but God saved me as a child not really knowing anything about Jesus. I learned about Jesus after I was saved. God has explained this in the Bible how "the firmament declares his Glory." We are without excuse.

If I am expected to watch that video without going mad, I will need absinthe.
spjennifer · 56-60, T
@CorvusBlackthorne Or some serious hallucinogenics which is what that guy is on 🤪
Blackie · 51-55, M
@CorvusBlackthorne yea no kidding this guy goes on and on. He’s like digging his own rabbit holes. 666 is the number of man plain and simple. So I’d surmise that somewhere within the seed of Adam (man) the beast will succeed in corrupting that image. Hence the anti-Christ, fathered by the beast, born man/God. Perfect antithesis to Christ and a deception to us all.
Please do not follow numerology.

"Godly" means we are walking with the Holy Spirit, and born again, living for heaven, not for this world. Jesus said, "My own know my voice" We are Not deceived into false doctrines ever.

@SpiritualMan Jesus is probably coming between 2023-2028. One Godly Bible scholar believes he is coming 2036 and before that there is the great tribulation of very evil times which I think we might be in right now.
@Carazaa Probably...that is too close to date-setting......we don't know....godly? According to whose standards? There have been many apparent godly pastors recently that have gone away in handcuffs for touching children in secret. Not saying this scholar was doing such things, but apparent godly people can hide secret and deep sins. People can also be wrong in their interpretations on some issues and still love God.

Yeah well..... the joke is on him then.

The "devils number" according to the oldest gospels was actually 616. So save the time you're going to waste watching the video - he's already wasted a lot of his, the poor bastard.
@jshm2 I believe 616 is a variant manuscript, but Nero Caesar adds up to 666 in Hebrew, in Latin Nero Caesar adds up to 616. Vespasian Caesar and Titus Caesar also add up to 666, both were Roman generals involved in the siege of Jerusalem in 70 AD and later became emperors. Titus directly stormed the Temple and stabbed the curtain that had been torn in half ad the crucifixion and declared "I have killed God". Prophesy said "The Beast will make war on the Lamb who sits on the Throne".
