The “mark of the beast” and 666 are not the same. Hello friends Some seem to think so, but the “mark of the beast” and 666 are not the same. Rev 13:16-17 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. KJV As you can see in verse 17 above it states, “…the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” The mark will be something that is distinguishable of the person. It may be anything from the persons evil thoughts, (forehead), and works, (right hand), to an actual physical mark such as an implanted microchip, or both, (most people with the first attributes will probably take the physical mark if offered). Rev 13:18 18 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. KJV “it is the number of a man;” The number of man is “6”. Man was created on the sixth day of creation in Gods image. But he was not created in Gods perfection or completeness of spirit. Seven is the number of completeness. Rev 13:1-2 1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. KJV Rev 13:11 11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. KJV “count the number of the beast” The dragon. The beast from the earth. The beast from the sea. “count the number of the beast”, and “his number is Six hundred threescore and six” The dragon, the beast of the earth, and the beast of the sea, these persons will be noted by their extreme evil, sinful ways. Three beast = three 6’s = 666, (the unholy trinity). Man as a 6 is born in sin. The three 6’s, (666) indicate extremely sinful and evil, a trinity to worship other than the Holy Trinity of God. Some people may even see the three of them as being a sign that they represent the Trinity.
