Counting 666Posted: March 12, 2015
Read Revelation 13 and see that there are different things
“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. 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.” (Revelation 13:17-18)
(1) the mark of the beast
(2) the name of the beast
(3) the number of his name
(4) count the number of the beast
The fourth item requires the counting of persons in a list until the right man shows up. That number is 666. The other number of the name is the ordinal associated with his name.
He must be some sort of royalty or pope with a name/number combination like “John 23” or “Henry 8” etc.
Therefore his has (2) a name and (3) a number. But his total number to count him – that is 666. So you have to start at a certain point in time and then add up the numbers and names of all the people in a particular line of succession until you get to a total that reaches exactly 666.
That’s what we did starting with the mad King George III – whose madness caused him to lose America (1782-84) a loss like the madness that struck king Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 4:23).
All the British monarchs thereafter – using simple English gematria (a=1, b=2,… z=26) – add up to 582. The next king must equal 84 if the total count is to reach 666 exactly.
Only two names+numbers that add up to 84 are possible:
(A) William 5, or (B) Nicholas 3.
This does not necessarily mean that Prince William is this antichrist – anybody who reigns next gets to chose his regal name – and he (Charles, Harry) could choose to be called “William” and be known as William 5. His count would = 666 and the “number of his name” would be five (“V”).
The name ‘Nicholas 3’ is also possible to add up to 666, but that name is a long-shot … but if the monarchy of England rules over Russia – which is possible after World War 3 with the USA and UK will win against Russia/Iran – then the monarch with the regal name Nicholas would be called #3 because the last czar was Nicholas 2.
