|In Biblical times, a mark was usually given to something that signified ownership,
the way many cattle are branded.
John the Apostle was not shown the number 666, but three, Greek symbols which he copied down to the best of his understanding. In other words, what John saw was not the numeral numbers 666, but three Greek picture symbols which he wrote in
Greek that resembled a symbol "engraving, mark or brand," equal to the sum of 'six hundred three score six.'
No leader has had a name that equals 'six hundred three score six' (666)
in both languages of the Bible, Hebrew and Greek. (John 8:44).
THE WORKMANSHIP OF THY TIMBRELS AND OF THY PIPES WAS
PREPARED IN THE DAY THAT THOU WAST CREATED.
Here is wisdom!
THE POWER OF A PICTURE!
People always think in thoughts of pictures, not in thoughts of words.
if you think of food to eat, you may think of three delicious juicy steaks on the grill.
You will not see the number three or the word STEAK, (as thoughts) instead,
"you will see a picture of three juicy steaks on the grill."
Here is the test.....
Take a book, (any book) then.... inside the book place a picture
(for example the picture of a hamburger).
Open and close the book quickly, what registers in your mind?
The picture of a hamburger, "not the page full of text" (on the opposit page).
"Children, I want you to think and draw me a picture of how you will see the world
50 years from today," The Knowing Film -
Remember...people always think in thoughts of pictures,
not of thoughts in words.
In other words, what John saw was not the numeral numbers 666, but rather, three great bold picture symbols which he wrote in
Greek as chi, xi, sigma," that resembled Greek picture symbols, a deep "engraving, mark or brand, " equal to the sum of, six hundred three score six = (666)
