The 666 Man

pope-francis-600  maitreya4  obama

A few weeks ago we did a post entitled, “666 and the Two-Horned Beast”.  In it we explored the two prophetic entities. But this week we’d like to focus in  more on who this 666 man may be. Obviously we are not prophets, and as such we can only give our opinions based on understanding Scripture, SOP and the Elijah message. Also knowing the events taking place in the world right now kind of sheds light on certain aspects of prophecy.

The Lord, as He often does, starts a seed of thought on a subject, and we “sup” and it leads to thoughts and ideas that germinate into a post. I would like to present some thoughts on this prophetic man, and narrow down our understanding to bring into focus a clearer view of real possibilities based on the Inspired writings.

As our three pictures show, there appears to be basically three leading candidates that could soon remove all doubt that one of them represents the prophesied “666” man.  They are 1) Pope Francis 2) The Maitreya  3) The president of the United states — Barrack H. Obama

Brief descriptions 

1)  Pope Francis–   Almost everyone around the planet knows about the Pope. To summarize , he is the first Jesuit Pope ever to hold the position of the head of the Roman Catholic Church. Well liked and admired for his apparent “humility”. This Pope has been a “one man PR machine”! His popularity in the world ranks right there with  the greatly popular and deceased Pope John Paul II.

A recent NBC article stated–

“Pope Francis is more popular than ever in the U.S., with 95 percent of Catholics who go to church every week — and even two-thirds of those with no religion — giving him high marks. The Pew Research Center says that two years after Francis was named the leader of the world’s 1 billion Roman Catholics, his popularity has eclipsed any numbers his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, ever posted and puts him on par with Pope John Paul II in the 1980s and 1990s.”(NBC online, March 6, 2015)

2)  The Maitreya–   He is less well-known. He is sort of the mysterious  religious man, who is thought by many of assorted faiths, to be the future “Christ” who is now living on this planet. Some think that a man named Benjamin Creme,  a Masonic leader and a sort of John the Baptist type to the followers of Maitreya, has authentically proclaimed that he is now publicly speaking around the world. There is a view that a  man named –Raj Patel, an Indian ancestry  appearing man, who is world renown for his “food for everyone” message,  is the Maitreya.

According to the followers, and some are well-known men and women, being world movers and shakers as well, this man will soon usher in a world peace movement. CNN even had commercials about him https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfGEp2TErrw
There have been claims he has appeared unannounced in certain parts of the world, preparing people for his soon world-wide appearance. In one case,  some claimed he has disappeared in their view. For more information you can go to YouTube and see a diverse selection of reports on him.

3) Barrack H. Obama —   Love him or hate him, this president has been quite a polarizing figure. There is no doubt he has taken steps to “fundamentally  change America”, as he promised before being elected. For the good? That is debatable, depending on your liberal or conservative stance. One thing we know, he is also strangely mysterious just as the Maitreya is.  No one seems to knows his true background, his college record, etc. All this info has been “locked up”.

So there are some brief descriptions of our candidates. I’m sure there are other candidates, but in the grand scheme of things, these appear to be the three leading ones.

But thank God we have a road map! And that is–Scripture, Spirit of prophecy, and the Elijah message. These writings hold the keys for us, that should provide a clear view which one of our candidates is the clear leading candidate for the 666 title.

To begin with let’s review what Rev.13:1-18 says in context. As we do this,  we see that verses 1 to 10 describe the “Leopard” like beast (LLB). Then we notice that verses 11 to 18 describes the “Two-Horned Beast” (THB). Chapter 13 is broken down into two descriptions of two beasts. Because the second part of Chap. 13 involves the 666 man, let’s review it again.

Verses 11-18

“Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 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. 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.

Here we clearly see that the 666 man is connected with the second beast, the THB. In further support of this, we know that Scripture always connects the LLB with the wound as seen in Rev. 13:3, 13:12, 13:14.  Therefore, the verse 13:18 saying only “the beast” indicates it’s not the LLB, but rather the THB in the context of verses 11-18.

SOP also puts the 666 man with the THB.

“..the last oppressive power has not ‘come to his end’; and Michael has not stood up. This last power that treads down the saints is brought to view in Rev. 13:11-18. His number is 666..” (Word to the Little Flock, p.8-9)

“I saw that the number (666) of the Image Beast (the two-horned beast) was made up; and that it was the beast (leopard-like) that changed the Sabbath, and the image Beast had followed on after, and kept the Pope’s and not God’s Sabbath.” (Ibid, p.12)

Now that we see that the 666 man is connected with the THB , what then is the Two Horned Beast? We as SDA know well that it can only represent the United States of America. Without going into much detail, suffice to say that the great nation that was “coming up out of the earth” can only mean the USA.

“But the beast with lamblike horns was seen “coming up out of the earth.” Instead of overthrowing other powers to establish itself, the nation thus represented must arise in territory previously unoccupied and grow up gradually and peacefully. It could not, then, arise among the crowded and struggling nationalities of the Old World—that turbulent sea of “peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” It must be sought in the Western Continent.

What nation of the New World was in 1798 rising into power, giving promise of strength and greatness, and attracting the attention of the world? The application of the symbol admits of no question. One nation, and only one, meets the specifications of this prophecy; it points unmistakably to the United States of America.” (The Great Controversy, p.440)

So this means that the 666 candidate cannot be the Pope. He is not connected to the USA but rather to the LLB.  The Pope does and will have an important role to play in final events but it appears he will be more of a cheerleader for the Sunday law and not as ruling king or authorial dictator.

Right now we see him as a world spokesman, highly regarded for his views, yet apparently,  he divinely knows that he must be active now for his time will be short.

Marco Politi, a Vatican expert, said in a recent article–

“This Pope (Francis) seems to be in a hurry to get as much done as he can, as if he’s got a deadline..He keeps talking about how his time is short.” (The Daily Beast, March 29, 2015)

So that leaves us with the two remaining candidates. By the same logical reasons, we must, therefore, eliminate the Maitreya. He is not connected with the USA as well. However it may be noted that he certainly may qualify for the “false Prophet” or the “false Christ”.

So we can now say with clarity that the 666 likely candidate can logically be– Barrack Hussein Obama!

Right now we see the announcing of many candidates for the US presidency. TV coverage is widespread and almost daily news reports come out on what they are promising for the USA and the world. However, Scripture predicts the awful final world war over Israel, as we have posted before. So what  is likely to transpire?

Barrack Obama, may stay on past the two term deadline! If the war breaks out and the USA gets involved,  an emergency declaration will be called and then, we as present truth believers know, the 144,000 come on the scene. The world dramatically changes, the great controversy begins! Christ’s servants against Satan’s servants. And who will be at head of the USA? The 666 man, the man representing the THB.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 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.” (Rev. 13:16-17).

 

In explaining more on the THB and the 666 man, the Elijah messages states–

“Having only two horns, not ten, the beast therefore  depicts a local, not a universal, government.  Nevertheless, he will influence all Christendom  to “make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live”; that is, he will engineer a world-wide governmental setup, re-enthroning the principles of the church-state rule of Ecclesiastical Rome. 

Being the restorer of these principles, he, along with the prophet, will become the world’s chief dictator, and shape not only the political and the religious policies of the governments, but also the world’s commerce.  He shall decree “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.” Rev. 13:17.

 

   This beast represents a man who stands at the head of a nation, and whose influence goes far and wide among the kings of the earth. He is further identified by a number — the mystical  number “six hundred threescore and six.” Rev. 13:18.

   The prevailing belief that the number “666” is the numerical identification of some other power, is the spawn of the Prince of Darkness, and is calculated to conceal if possible the identification of this two-horn power.  Inspiration puts the number on the two-horn beast, and there we must leave it.  When the number is finally made up, the servants of God will be able to  convince all the “wise” as to just whom the beast symbolizes. 

We now see, though, that no one who studies the Word of God, need be deceived when this power does appear on the stage of  action.  Yet notwithstanding God’s warning against giving allegiance to the beast, the world fails to give heed, with the result that even after his number is made up, “he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their  foreheads.” Rev. 13 :16.

 

   The passage, “If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,” denotes that all who, after hearing the truth, continue to pay homage, either religiously or secularly,  to the image, “shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation.” Rev. 14:9, 10. (Tract 12, p.26-28)

The beast we are told is a man (Rev. 13:18).  The demand to worship, obey the beast’s command, therefore, is a demand to worship (obey) man in place of God.  Both marks are for no other purpose but to define who is who — who is for God and who is for the beast.  Those who obey God’s Judgment message rather than the beast’s decree, receive God’s mark.  And those who obey the beast’s decree rather than God’s message receive the beast’s mark.  These two different marks, you see, separate the worshipers of God from the worshipers of men.(Jezreel Letter, no.2, p.11-12)

 In Summary

We are soon, very soon, to experience dramatic changes in the world as we know it. Based on the signs given by the Lord, both Scripture being fulfilled and direct outward signs (ie. 4 Blood moons, dead animals around the world, etc.) the great last world war will break out shortly. Israel is paranoid of Iran, and may make a first strike which will draw Russia in, which will snowball the USA and other countries in  as well.

Our current president is strangely gifted at speaking and as such his influence may soon be catapulted around the globe, when the world war comes painfully to a close. Desolation and world-wide shock will set in because the great and vast protestant world has falsely taught that God will “protect Israel” and her enemies will be defeated. But they have been confused (rightly so as part of Babylon), they have mistakenly taught that the current people over in Israel, the current Jews  (not the Israel that God speaks of in the Scriptures concerning the last days), are to receive the covenant  promises of the Lord.

The land will be basically wiped out and desolate, there will appear a great need to “understand it all” , and as such religion will take the world’s center stage. During or at the close of this war, the SDA church judgment happens and the 144,000 are revealed (See Tract 14, p.22). Shortly after this they take up  their journey to the promised land (Israel). The land becomes miraculously beautiful again and much rejoicing occurs in the land (see Isaiah  2:1-4 and 11:1-10)

This fulfills Scripture –

“And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Zion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.” (Rev. 14:1-3)

God’s ” full spirit”  is then poured out among them and healings and miracles of all kinds are witnessed by the world. They begin to bring the honest of heart out of Babylon.

Satan then begins his counter plans and attacks. The 666 man, being without God, is directly influenced by Satan and has powers that work together with the false prophet. The Pope is instrumental in advising the need for a Sunday Law, and because of the great works done by the 144,000, Satan convinces the masses of unbelievers, through the 666 man, the false prophet, and the Pope, to solidify a united religious law. Satan is granted power to do, through the false prophet, counterfeit miracles “in the sight of the beast.”

The world will soon be at a crossroads–God’s way (seal) and obeying His Commandments, or Satan’s way (mark) and obeying mankind through his puppets, specifically his 666 man, the false prophet and the Pope. Time will tell all the exact details.

“Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD.Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.”(Joel 3:9-13)

 “Behold, a day is coming for the Lord, when the spoil taken from you will be divided in your midst. For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses plundered and the women raped. Half of the city shall go out into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations as when he fights on a day of battle. On that day his feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives that lies before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide valley, so that one half of the Mount shall move northward, and the other half southward.” (Zech. 14:1-4)

    Brother Rob:

    I have long looked on hour writings with refreshing delight and share them with my closest friends. I want to highlight a paragraph for removal:

    “Barrack Obama, will stay on past the two term deadline! If the war breaks out and the USA gets involved, an emergency declaration will be called and then, we as present truth believers know, the 144,000 come on the scene. The world dramatically changes, the great controversy begins! Christ’s servants against Satan’s servants. And who will be at head of the USA? The 666 man, the man representing the THB.”

    It does not take Obama’s presidency to make America wear the number 666, so force-fitting him to stay in office beyond his legal term plays into the hands of the evangelical conspiracy hunters (republicans vs democrats) and discredits the teachings of the holy message we bear. I would encourage you to steer clear of the speculations, because they will not be seen as merely speculative after the fact, and will serve to bring reproach on the good work you do. Please consider this advice and scrub your article of any move towards the sensational. We have sufficient concrete information in the Rod to keep all our readers amused and amazed and we don’t need to “invent” a false reality.

    PS: Why not join our Bible conference call this Sabbath, if your time permits?

    Hello brother Garrick. Thanks for taking time out of your very busy schedule to review our articles. I believe you saw the article just prior to when we made a small revision. I see the quote you have is “Barrack Obama , will stay on past the two term deadline!” As I do occasionally , I proof-read the post to see where I may have missed anything and I caught that on that particular quote (It was done before you posted your comment here).

    It now reads– “Barrack Obama, may stay on past the two term deadline!” (will replaced by may) I posted in the very beginning that these projections are solely private opinions based on the events falling together as I see them.

    Sorry you feel it is seen as too sensational for you but I stand by what was written. We do appreciate any and all suggestions you bring however.We shall soon see what transpires. I will try and make your meeting. God bless.

    Wonderful article brother, we need to bring these truths to the front specially since the pope is schedule to come in september.

  4. godsloveandlaw Says:

    Yes bro, closing events are to happen rapid fire, let us be ready. will be interesting what the pope will say. Some think he will press the idea of climate problems and the need for a “day of rest” to ease the pollution around the world. This scheme plays right into the world’s hands.
