666 - The Number of the Beast!
The Ignorant Fishermen.com ^ | 10/25/ 2011 | DJP, I.F.

Posted on 10/29/2011 4:42:32 PM PDT by kindred

As a young unsaved man I was very much into the heavy metal scene, not just participating in the lifestyle and culture, but also in the playing of this music. A song that we use to play and listen to was a song by Iron Maiden called, “The Number of the Beast”. The intro of this song begins with a man with a very ire voice quoting Revelation 12:12, 13:18.

"Woe to You Oh Earth and Sea for the Devil sends the beast with wrath because he knows the time is short.Let him who have understanding reckon the number of the beast for it is a human number,its number is six hundred and sixty six"

Today millions of heavy metal fans across the world know this intro of this song as they know their very own names. They can quote this passage verbatim as unsaved religious folks can quote the Lord’s Prayer. I truly wonder how many - lost and saved today - fully comprehend the full magnitude, weight and depth of this exponential super abounding time called the Great Tribulation; in which there will be the exponential demonic oppression and tyranny of the "Devil" and his anti Christ (i.e., the Beast) (Rev. 9, 12:7-17). The very ones who can quote these same Scriptures fused into this Iron Maiden song (Rev.12:12, 13:18) will most likely be alive when this very Satanic institution goes into full affect (Matt. 24:15). What this song has done is to take the sting out of Almighty God's horrific warning and has neutered these Bible verses by twisted them to subtly promote the acceptance of the demonic agenda of 666, which will reign over the world very shortly (Rev. 12:12; 13:18).

"The very ones who can quote these same Scriptures fused in this Iron Maiden song will most likely, be alive when this very Satanic intuition goes into effect". .The words despotic, authoritarian, tyrannical, autocratic etc. with all of their deepest and fullest descriptions, fall so exceedingly short when seeking to describe the Satanic tyranny and oppression during these last 3 ½ years called “The Great Tribulation” (Matt. 24:21-22). So horrific a time this will be that the Lord Jesus stated that, “if the days were not cut short NO ONE (flesh) WOULD EVER SURVIVE” (Matt. 24:22)! This "time period" is experientially far more horrific then all the world wars and global pestilence ever put together. To add to man’s global woes during this time, the inhabitants of the world will have a supernatural oppressor and tyrant whose power, strength and genius exponentially surpasses the limited confines of mankind.

This fallen evil genus (Lucifer - aka. Satan) and his rebellious host of untold millions of fallen angels will be - because of their expulsion from any access to the third heaven - confined and concentrated to this little o’l planet called earth (Rev.12:7-17). Planet earth will become their new temporal prison cell (Rev. 18:2) till Christ’s glorious return to earth in which these demonic hordes will be placed back in the abyss until they are assigned into the Lake of Fire FOREVER(Matt 25:41, Rev. 19:11-21). It has been this very time and hour that has been the most haunting and dreadful thought in the minds of the fallen angelic hosts, for they now know indeed that their time is very short (Matt. 8:29, 25: 41 Mark 1:24, 5:7, Luke 4:34, James 2:19).

In this last century - with all of the new mediums available to mankind - no other medium has been more powerful a tool in the hand of Satan (i.e., Lucifer) than the godless music industry. By it he has single handedly changed the course of history and the landscape of the world's global social order (Luke 4:5-6, 2 Cor. 4:3-4, Eph. 2:1-2, 6:12).

My friend, put away all such forms of evil and by faith place your trust in Almighty God's Son, the Lord Jesus Christ and receive Him in to your heart as your personal Savior (John 1:12, 3:16-17, Acts 4:12, Rom. 6:23, 10:4, Gal 1:4) That my friend, is what this whole little life is about! Satan's godless system is but for a moment when compared to the vast expanse of ETERNITY future (Matt. 25:41, Rev. 20:11-15).

My friend, place your trust in the Savior today and instead of drinking and singing from Satan's musical kool - aid selections. You will truly know what true happiness is and what comes from a heart that has been forgiven. You will be singing "Amazing Grace" all the live long day. May it be even so for you!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

49And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.

50And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.

51And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,

52And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.

53And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.

54And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?

55But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.

56For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

57And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

58And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

59And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

60Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

61And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.

62And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

"The lead singer of Iron Maiden is a born again Christian who was rescuing Christians from Lebanon a few years back."

Apparently Megadeth too . . .

In 2004, Mustaine said he would vote for President Bush because John Kerry would "ruin our country." -- In 2011, he called President Obama "the most divisive president we've ever had. I've never, in my 50 years of being alive, listened to an American president try and turn one class of people against another class of people."

No W in hebrew, sorry. Sixth letter is Vav which is v sound, can be used as O or U if there is a little dot above or beside it. Note that Hebrew reads right to left, starts with Aleph.

The lead singer of Iron Maiden is a born again Christian who was rescuing Christians from Lebanon a few years back.

He was also nearly a world class fencer, who probably could have made the British Olympic squad, had he been willing to put Iron Maiden on hold. He also holds a commercial pilot license, and actually pilots the Iron Maiden tour plane (in the left seat!) Their chartered plane is "Flight 666 on 'Ed Force One.'" It's weird to see him do it, because when he does, he wears his pilot uniform.

No it is the vav or V sound, nothing close to a W in hebrew, like no G sound. But they got other sounds we don’t have to make up for it.

But no W, that 666 thing just does not work in hebrew.

. I truly wonder how many - lost and saved today - fully comprehend the full magnitude, weight and depth of this exponential super abounding time called the Great Tribulation

Clearly the author of this article doesn't comprehend the passage at all and knows nothing of the Great Tribulation that took place in Judea around 70AD.

The author assumes many things that are in direct conflict with the text. For example, taking the passage that the author butchered by chopping off the last phrase of the sentence "but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened.". There is a very good reason why the writer chopped off that phrase - because it refutes the wild claims of the writer. Who is the "elect" and why would the "elect" be on Earth during the Futurist's imaginative "Great Tribulation"? Aren't the "elect" enjoying a seven year party and rave in Heaven?

Then there are other clues to the fact that the author replaced the elect physical and spiritual children of Abraham with "the whole world" in the context to who was being warned. Our LORD said "take heed that no one deceives you" where the most natural context would be the people who He was talking to, not a generation of reprobates who already "rejected Christ" and are passed over and "left behind" from an alleged "rapture" thousands of years later.

Then there is the phrase "those who are in Judea flee to the mountains". Why is it that the Futurists who replace "Israel" with "the whole world" always delete this passage? Because it puts the scope of the warning to the people actually living in Judea who could escape the tribulation by "fleeing to the [nearby] mountains"

"Pray that you flight may not be in the winter..." Doesn't the author know that while one hemisphere enjoys a summer, the other is in the midst of a winter? Would Jesus, the Creator of Heaven and Earth forget this detail, or is it possible the scope of the warning was to those living in Judea?

"...or on the Sabbath" How is it that the Replacementarian Futurist misses this phrase? What religion actually observes the Law on the Sabbath regarding travel? Back in the first century, the people to who Jesus was speaking to, on the Sabbath not only kept indoors, but the gates of all the cities and towns were kept shut and barred. This statement would only make sense to the people of Judea up until 70AD, not to six billion plus people wandering around the Earth in the twenty-first century.

"Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house." How relevant is that warning to anyone today? But it was a helpful survival tip to those in Judea during the first century.

So the context is clearly of Judea in the first century. Flavius Josephus, Jewish Historian records in War of the Jews, book 5 chapter 10 the horror of women and children who perished by the famine, taking food from the mouths of their own children. In Book 6 chapter 3, we read of Mary, daughter of Eliezar who killed, boiled and half eaten her own suckling child until discovered. How do you think those historical facts correspond to the warning "And woe to unto them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days." (v19).

Never mind the lunacy of suggesting that a future generation of people who have rejected Christ are now going to escape the Tribulation by hiding in the hills of Judea - these warnings were given to the disciples and those of faith who were still in Jerusalem at the time the Roman armies encircled the city and began the siege.

The evidence is overwhelming that the author is either clueless or is deliberately reckless and deceiving concerning the Scriptures and through the vehicle of lies perversely thinks that people can be scared into the Kingdom.

I'm assuming that the author has given up on the Gospel and is now using terrorism to "win souls for Christ". I guess if you don't know the Gospel then you can't really use it to further the kingdom. Go with what you know - self-absorbtion and fear.

i have seen things similar to this and that is why i thought it was so...

The Waw has a "w" sound (called the vav in modern Hebrew with a "v" sound) and is a picture of a peg or nail which is used to secure or add things together. This letter is used to mean "and" in the sense of adding. When this letter is prefixed to the word erets the word we'erets is formed meaning "and a land."

Yes. When Heinlein was writing it, he made one of his annual calls soliciting blood donations at the WorldCon. I wasn't at home to take the call, so he chatted for a while with my younger son, then in high school. He mentioned some things about "a forthcoming story," which I recognized when I read it. I thought it was very gentelemanly of Heinlein to take the time to chat with a high school student, even though he had a lot of calls to make.
