The Number 666 according to Muslims
According to the Bible, 666 is an evil number, and represents the beast, or the anti-Christ. But to Muslims, this is a holy number.Which interpretation do you choose?
Rev 13:18Here 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.
The beast and the fierce ruler:
I have seen people get excited over this, and do numerology studies on the Bible and every public personality, trying to determine who the beast is.Daniel made it clear that the beast was actually a kingdom, headed by a fierce ruler:
Dan 7:23Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
***note: some people think this is the USA, but the USA is not “devouring the entire earth.”Look at what group is spreading around the world, causing destruction in every country, and it will not be the USA.The USA is a democracy, not a kingdom. Daniel and Revelation make it clear that is of ancient Grecian origin (Daniel 7, Rev 13).
Daniel 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance , and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
Daniel 8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
Daniel 8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart , and by peace shall destroy many:
Notice that the ruler claims to be a man of peace, but his peace is destructive.
So, the number of the beast (antichrist kingdom) is the number of a man (666), also called the little horn:
Daniel 8:9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land(Israel).
The number 666 in the Bible
Recall that the New Testament is written in Greek, so when we examine the number 666, we cannot use Hebrew, or English alphabets and numbers.We have to look at the Greek.
What does the Greek look like?This is 666 in Greek:
I do not see this very clearly, but apparently if one looks atχξςwhich is Greek for 666, and turns it sideways, one sees what is translated as “Bismillah,” or “in the name of Allah.”Look below at the script in gold, not the round object.Focus on the UUU part.Muslims will recognize this right away, because it is also Arabic.
Additionally, crossed swords ( X ) are a symbol for Islam. So in 666 we may find both “Islam” and “in the name of Allah”.
Islam and the number 666
It is interesting to know that many Muslims believe the number “666” to be a holy number. They also believe that the number 19 is holy as well. In knowing this I am not surprised that the number of terrorist that destroyed the World Trade Center was 19. They are called by many in Islam “the magnificent 19”. The number “666” is believed to represent the Quran and the Prophet Mohammed.
The number “666” could very easily be identified by our Lord as the number of a man, since it is a man made doctrine and a man made book, referring to its author Mohammed. Those in Islam that believe in the number “666” and its purity believe that Satan used Christians to pervert the Bible.
They believe that the book of Revelation was inspired by Satan and that he used the number “666” as a bad number in order to prevent Christian people from accepting the Quran and the teachings of Mohammed because of fear.
From the Bible view, it is easy to see the Muslims wearing this number between their eyes, on their foreheads to proclaim their faith in Allah. The mark could also be symbolic, instead of literal, to represent the mind of Islam.
So, “666” is here.
If 666 is a physical mark, to be worn on the believer in Islam, then anyone who refuses to take the number (accept Islam) will be considered not to be a true believer in Allah and Mohamed. As they conquer other people they will enforce this mark to guarantee support from those that they allow to live.
From their own websites
Accordingto 1st Muslim website:
http://www.66619.org/666.htm quoted on this Christian website
“The number 666 is highly publicized all over the world and it is associated with evil and danger.
However, it is not what it seems. It was a Satanic trick.The trick was to prevent the people approaching the 666.
Satan knew that the 666 is the book of GOD and the people should be kept away from it.According to his plan, he placed a bad image to the number 666.Indeed, it is a glorious Quran, in a preserved master tablet.”
“It is the intent of this newsletter, God willing, to present the readers with easily verifiable and yet utterly irrefutable physical evidences that the Quran, the Final Testament, is indeed the highly publicized “666” that the corrupted Pauline church is afraid of. Satan’s scheme reflected in his book of “The Revelation,” placed in the Bible, to give “the number” a bad connotation shall backfire.
The 19-based mathematical miracle of the Quran shall prove to the whole world that the book, “666,” is without a doubt “a revelation from the Lord of the universe.”
The authorized translation of the Quran shall find its place in every household.
The sincere souls shall receive the message; they shall embrace God’s religion, “Submission,” in throngs.
The corrupted religionists shall be deprived of their illicit earnings. When money, “their god,” is taken away from these human devils, they perish.
The Quran, “666,” was sent down through Prophet Muhammad (G.V. 92) and its mathematical miracle was revealed through Rashad Khalifa (G.V. 505,725).
From a 2nd muslim website… http://www.66619.org/thequran.htm
The Message of GOD, The Book of GOD, The Quran, 666 and its Proof, 19.
The letter w is in Arabic Vav and its Gv is 6. Therefore, www becomes 666.
www , World Wide Web is a gift from GOD to humanity that they can talk, watch, read, share, listen anything.
The letter w is in Arabic Vav and its Gv is 6. Therefore, www becomes 666.
www , World Wide Web is a gift from GOD to humanity that they can talk, watch, read, share, listen anything.
666 , The Quran is a gift from GOD to humanity that it guides to the right path which leads to Heaven.
The proofs shall be the evidences that this Quran is the 666 that Satan, his religions, his temples especially the Church are afraid of.
The Quran is the 666 and GOD preserves the 666 with the number 19.
6 is the first perfect number in mathematics. It is the only number that the sum of its factors andalso the product of its factors equal to the number itself.
1 + 2 + 3 = 6
1 x 2 x 3 = 6
We read in the Quran that GOD created the Heavens and the Earth and all in between in 6 days.
Sura 111 has 100 letters and the Gv of letter Qaf is 100.
Sura 111 has 6 verses ; 111 x 6 = 666 , The Quran
Sura 6 verse 111 is 666 th verse in the Qaf table.
The number 666 is written mathematically as : 6 x 100 , 6 x 10 , 6 x 1
Adding the factors gives the result of the number 111 (100+10+1).
We say “ALLAHUAKBAR” 111 times in daily contact prayers.
Adding all the factors gives the result of 18 (6+6+6) and 111 (100+10+1).
Sura 18 has 111 verses and 18 x 111 = 1998 (666×3)..The Year that The Message “This Quran” delivered.
The creation of biological life on this earth is based on Carbon. Carbon has 6 electrons.
Carbon is the 6th element in the Periodic table.
Additional note from an Islamiat student I talked to:
There are 666 verses, or ayats, in the Quran.
What do you think?
Either the number 666 is the number of the beast [evil], as the Bible describes,
it is the holy number of the Quran.
You cannot believe the 666 is both good and evil.You have to make a choice as to what you believe.
Is the Bible correct, or is the Quran correct, on this? Your eternal destiny depends on the choice you make.
*** Some muslims have disputed this 666 as belonging to Islam, while others admit it. So consider this a theory, not an established fact.
HAMAS in prophecy
When questioned about his return, and the end times, or the “last days,” Jesus gave a very interesting, prophetic utterance to those who were sharp enough to get it. He stated that the sign of the times would be like the days of Noah. He was immediately referring them to Genesis 6: 1-13, describing the condition of mankind before the flood.
These are the key points in these 13 verses.
1. Mixing of the seed of the serpent with the seed of man, which has come to a critical number, so that the seed of the serpent needs to be destroyed. ( see post- The seed of the Serpent). Click here for more
This would mean there would be a large number or a multitude of people whose physical seed had been contaminated with the seed of the serpent.
Gen 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
Gen 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of menthat they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Gen 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
Gen 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown.
2. Violence and corruption covered the earth- we call this terrorism and false witness/slander now
Gen 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man [was] great in the earth, and [that] every imagination of the thoughts of his heart [was] only evil continually.
Gen 6:11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
Gen 6:12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
Gen 6:13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violencethrough them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
Here, I intentionally left in the link to the original Bible verse. Once you get to the original verse, if you will click on the “C” for concordance, you will get the original Hebrew. Look at the original Hebrew for “violence.” The Hebrew word (CHAMAS) is pronounced HAMAS. Hamas means violence and false witness.
so these verses could be also written:
Gen 6:11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with HAMAS.
Gen 6:13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with HAMASthrough them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
Jesus was actually revealing the name of the terrorist group that would be in operation in Israel, which would prompt God to destroy them for their corruption. Remember, Jesus was speaking in Hebrew, not English, to his followers. Jesus knew He was revealing the name of the group who would oppose Israel, and bring in the time of Jacob’s trouble.
HAMAS is a terrorist group that spreads false witnessagainst the Jews in Israel, as well as the Christians around the world. It uses the media well to promote negative propaganda to accomplish its goals.
Wickedness – the Hebrew word is rah, evil, hurtful, vicious
Corrupt – the Hebrew word is shachat, which literally means to slaughter or destroy, ruin, spoil, rotted. Here it says the flesh is ruined. It seems to be referring to a condition (due to corrupt seed?) in the physical body.
3. Noah was NOT contaminated either physically or spiritually – in body or in character/behavior, as others were.
Gen 6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
Gen 6:9 These [are] the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man [and] perfect in his generations, [and] Noah walked with God.
Here Noah is described as both just and perfect.
just = tsadeck – lawful, righteous
perfect in his generations = tamiym – wholesome, sound, healthy, complete, innocent
the “just” is describing his behavior, the “perfect” is describing his physical condition.
The others of his day were contaminated with the seed of the serpent, and manifested violence and wickedness.Noah was not contaminated in his seed, and was just and pure.
So there is some connection between biology and behavior here.
4. Conclusion: those that were identified as HAMAS were those that were progeny of the seed of the serpent.
This means those who call themselves Palestinians, today, are being led by the seed of the serpent, HAMAS.
Since it is almost time for the Jewish Messiah to show up in Israel, it only makes sense that the seed of the adversary, Satan, shows up too, to oppose the Messiah’s arrival.
5. Comparing the past with the future
In 37 BC, about 30 years before the birth of Jesus, Herod came to power. At that time, Herod represented, at least symbolically, the seed of the serpent, since He commanded that all boy babies be killed in order to kill the Messiah child. He ruled for 34 years.
***Approximately 5BC, he ordered the slaughtering (shachat) of the innocents. Jesus would have been about 19 months old by then, born in about 7 BC. So about 30 years prior to the arrival (birth) of the Messiah, Herod came into power.
Hamas was founded in 1987, and came into full power in 2006, when it defeated the Fatah party of Arafat. So HAMAS has been in power about 21 years now. This is just interesting speculation, but if HAMAS parallels the pattern set by Herod, this would “predict” that the Messiah’s arrival would be in about 9 years from now. That would be 2017-18.
6. Other data that agrees with this HAMAS prophecy:
The solar cycle will peak in about 2011-2012, which could start the tribulation. which is about 7 years before the 2017-2018 date. (see post on this) Click here for more
4 blood moons are predicted to occur in 2014-2015, which might be the sign before the great and terrible day of the Lord the last 3.5 years of the tribulation. This also coincides with an end in 2017-2018. (see post on this.)Click here for more
Interesting thought. What do you think?
The Zechariah curse
In Zechariah 5, there is a curse prophesied that covers the earth. Most would say that this predicts a nuclear war, because of the damage described. But what is the Hebrew word for curse? Is the word chosen just a coincidence?
Zec 5:1 Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying scroll. (Hebrew word megillah- so cylinder shaped, or something that looks like rolled up paper)
*** this would be a different post, but many have seen this flying object match the measurements of a nuclear scud missile. It contains also, from other passages, a nuclear cap, with radioactivity inside.
Zec 5:2 And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying scroll; the length thereof [is] twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits
Zec 5:3 Then said he unto me, This [is] the curse that goes forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that steals shall be cut off [as] on this side according to it; and every one that swears shall be cut off [as] on that side according to it.
The Hebrew text looks like this for verse 3:
וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלַי זֹאת הָֽאָלָה הַיֹּוצֵאת עַל־פְּנֵי כָל־הָאָרֶץ כִּי כָל־הַגֹּנֵב מִזֶּה כָּמֹוהָ נִקָּה וְכָל־הַנִּשְׁבָּע מִזֶּה כָּמֹוהָ נִקָּֽה׃
the curse h423 הלא(this word program reverses the letters, so read from left to right) =’ alah = interesting choice of words.
There are 4 words (nouns) for the word “curse.”
Examples (this word program reverses the letters, so read from left to right):
הלל ק …………. kel·ä·lä …………….. Gen 27:12
ררא ‘ ………… arar …………………………..Num 5:18
הלא ‘ ……….. alah ……………………………Num 5:21
הראמ …… mĕerah ………………………..Prov 3:33
So, one word for curse, is ” ‘alah,” which is used in the Zechariah prophecy.
Different words for curse are used in different passages.“Alah” is also used other places in scripture as well.
In Zechariah, is this an intentional use of the Hebrew word “alah” to associate the flying scroll with Allah, god of Islam?
Also, there is a visual resemblance to the curls from a rolled out scroll, and the curls from the Arabic that spell Allah. Curls and round letters are characteristic of Arabic script. This is just an exercise in imagination here.
curls in the paper from being rolled out:
Allah in Arabic looks like curls, as if paper released after rolled up:
The comparison between the curled lettering and the curls from a scroll is interesting, but the main issue is the Hebrew word “alah,” which means “curse.”
While this is just speculative, it is strange, when we see Muslim countries like Iran making threats to destroy Israel, and others with their nuclear missiles. Of course, Iran is not the only one making threats.
Since no detail, to me, is a meaningless coincidence in scripture, it is my own personal opinion that the curse of Allah is over the earth at this time, in fulfillment of the Zechariah prophecy.
While there are many Muslims who want peace, and do not want to die in a war, there are many others who do want war, in the name of Allah.
While it is true that a holy, fair, and loving God sends a curse to punish very wicked people for their sins, a “curse” is characteristically NOT used against innocent people.
Only God knows the heart, and who is truly wicked. It is NOT up to man to make this decision, and act on it. The only one entitled to punish mankind is God, not man. Man is in disobedience, ie. NOT submission, to God when he decides he is the “judge,” and tries to do God’s job for Him.
I encourage everyone, especially Muslims, to reflect upon this truth, since a use of Allah’s name, and instructions, is involved.
While a curse may be over the earth (Allah, threat of nuclear war, or both, or something else) due to sins in the world, not everyone is worthy of destruction.
Those that love, obey, and trust in God can find shelter in God’s promises of protection and deliverance.
To obey God requires some effort, to find out what His laws and commandments are. Loving God, and then disobeying Him, makes no sense.
Take time to know God’s will. Read the Bible. Learn the 10 commandments. Read the gospels, etc. Trust in Jesus and his salvation.
-Update 5-3-09 Here is something that really looks like the scroll described in Zechariah. And apologies to Muslims, if this is the correct interpretation.
These are flying rods up in space, thought to be UFOs, seen by astronauts. What are they doing up there, and are thy dangerous? they look like swarming bacteria, swimming sperm/serpents, all over the space image.
Are they missiles, or living creatures? Very weird.
