 Six: the Number of Man, the Number of ‘the Man of Sin’

 

“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; 

and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”  Revelation 13: 18, Authorized Version.

 

The following is quoted from: An Exhaustive E.G. White Commentary on Revelation, Vol. II Footnotes of Rev. 13: 18. Review & Herald Publishing Association:

     “Here is wisdom. – Compare the phrase, ‘here is the mind which hath wisdom” (ch. 17: 9(. The wisdom here commended is doubtless that to which Paul refers in Eph. 1: 17. Only by divine enlightenment [not human wisdom] will men understand the mysteries of the Word of God (see on 1 Cor. 2:13). “ Read more

It would be interesting to see what their individual reactions would be, and how much, if any, it would influence their thinking for the present and the long-term in their powerful positions within their respective spheres of influence in forming policies and making decisions on the fly as presidents of two  nations that are currently on the spotlight of the daily news cycle: Read more

 Biblical Numerology: NUMBER FIVE Part VI

 ‘For what can war but endless war still breed?’

JOHN MILTON, Sonnets: To Lord Fairfax

 

THE NEW TESTAMENT SAYS:

      “Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war.  Yet you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. James 4: 1-4, N.K.J.V. Read 1 John 2: 15-17 also!

What a time to be alive today being a part and participants in what the ancient prophets were mere vicarious participants and spectators of in visions of earth’s frenzied activities in the last days! Read more

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

Shallow men believe in luck, believe in circumstances.

Strong men believe in cause and effect.

RALPH WALDO EMERSON, Conduct of Life

_______

Most, if not all Catholics as well as other mainstream Christians will abstain from eating meat, but not fish, today, Good Friday of the Lenten Season.  If you still eat fish at this time of earth’s polluted history, check on the internet “Top 12 Contaminated Fish You Shouldn’t Be Eating.”www.manukafeed.com./contaminated-fish/?utm_source=yahoo8utm-campaign=yahoo-fish-us&utm-medium=cpc&utm_content=fishl. (Note: there are cookies on this site)

The Bible clearly distinguishes unclean and clean animals for eating purposes, including fish; the clean have fins and scales. All other sea and fresh water creatures are unclean, that is, according to the Creator’s love and wisdom, not man’s reasoning. See Leviticus 11: 1-47, etc. This divine classification was not only given to and for the Israelites but in the time of Noah!  See Gen. 6: 6: 17-22; 7: 1-24. Read more

     “Christ had retired to a secluded place with His disciples, but this rare season of peaceful quietude was soon broken. The disciples thought they had retired where they would not be disturbed; but as soon as the multitude missed the divine Teacher, they inquired, ‘Where is He?’ . . . .The Passover was at hand, and, from far and near, bands of pilgrims on their way to Jerusalem gathered to see Jesus. Additions were made to their number, until there were assembled five thousand men besides women and children . .   Read more
