    The Meaning of 666, The Reason for the Riddle

    Subtraction is not "counting", only Addition. When I count sheep, as they jump over the fence, one side is added to, the other subtracted from. Its all "counting sheep."

    In other words, subtracting 1 from 667 to calculate the number of the beast 666.

    The Meaning of 666, The Reason for the Riddle

    Yes. I won't lie and say I'm looking forward to it, because it will be a terrible time of persecution when most Christians are slain. Technology won't permit any success "hiding in the mountains". The drones will find us wherever we run and I'm too out of shape to run far anyway.

    The Meaning of 666, The Reason for the Riddle

    My argument was obscure in the OP, hopefully this makes it clear: The Genitive (“OF”) is the double entendre. 1) 666 is the number OF a man; 2) 666 is the number OF a name (Rev. 13:17); 3) 666 is the number OF the Beast. The solution: 1a) 666 is OF the man because he has 666 children (Ezr...

    The Meaning of 666, The Reason for the Riddle

    Its of little value now. But when a miracle working Assyrian Jewish Christian politician rises in both the church and in the End Time Grecian version of the Roman Empire, in a ten king confederation aligned with the Dragon leader of "extraterrestrials" claiming to be the designers of life on...

    The Meaning of 666, The Reason for the Riddle

    genitive — The genitive is the case that qualifies or restricts a noun by means of a specific characterization. The genitive normally marks a noun as the source or possessor of something, or refers to the kind of relationship that noun has to another noun. It is typically expressed in English by...

    The Meaning of 666, The Reason for the Riddle

    What gymnastics, its genitive, OF which means its NOT symbolic, NOT Gematria. My interpretation is elegant, parsimonous, strict adherence to the Greek. Elegance is evidence of truth, correctness.

    The Meaning of 666, The Reason for the Riddle

    No contradiction. You are reading into "number of his name" Gematria, but OF is genitive, not implying Gematria at all. The number is OF the name, just as its a number OF a man. Double Entendre. The number exists because Adonikam has 666 children; The equation 667-1 exists because Daddy Adonikam...

    Evidently you didn't read the post your responding to, Gematria is opposed in it.

    The Meaning of 666, The Reason for the Riddle

    "Spirit of antichrist" is the same thing Paul called the "mystery of lawlessness" in 2 Thess. 2. The antichrist spirit by word, prophecy and spurious apostolic letters had shaken the faith of the Thessalonians preaching Christ had came and left them behind (2 Tim. 2:18). This is confirmed in the...

    You must state your point, I cannot deduce it from the above.

    The Meaning of 666, The Reason for the Riddle

    Yes, its correct Revelation uses numbers symbolically, often. But not all the time. What Christ said about false prophets can by extension apply to teaching, for prophets teach: 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good...

    The Meaning of 666, The Reason for the Riddle

    Makes no sense at all, God is not a "triune being", He is One Infinite Ocean of Essence in whom subsists Three Divine Persons, equally. Man is One Person who consists of three different substances, body soul and spirit. You could say we are the reflex of God, a reverse of what He is, but your...

    The Meaning of 666, The Reason for the Riddle

    If Antichrist were a proper noun, your argument is valid. But its not, its a description and in context John applies it to "many antichrists" who left his church to found their own. A church of miracle working TARES. Therefore the name can be used of any wolf in sheep's clothing, but more aptly...
