    2.) There is nowhere in the text that says this number is to be used to find out the identity of the Antichrist. Most futurist scholars would probably agree that by the time the Mark of the Beast is instituted, it won’t be a huge secret who the Antichrist is, especially to the saints living at the time of the Mark of the Beast. Contextually, it is clear from this passage that the Antichrist has already reached the place where Satan has come down to earth and is possessing the Antichrist (verse 1). The False Prophet is present displaying signs and wonders, and the image of the beast is created to make sure people are worshipping the image of the Antichrist as a god.

    calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.” (Rev. 13:18) This is the Antichrist’ verse of fame; the one verse most have at least some bit of familiarity. Ironically, it is also one of the most mysterious and lesser understood verses in The Bible. Before I address what I think the text is saying, let me first assert what I think it is not saying.

    the woman clothed with the sun and the seven headed dragon. The woman depicted here wears a white robe with a subtle reveal of a child carried within her, Jesus.

    dictatorial, savage group. In the end all is put to rest with the arrival of society in the form of a Navy officer, but the deeper issues are never truly fixed, only postponed and forgotten. The turn to savagery we see is consistent with the theory of Hobbes, which I also support, that being that humans themselves are naturally vicious.
