“…and his number is 666.” Revelation 13:18.
Yesterday evening, as I read an article written by The Huffington Post senior editor Ryan Buxton, it slowly occured to me that I knew what, quite plausibly, was the true interpretation of the age-old puzzle: “666” – the mark of the beast.
The article spoke of US supreme court justice Anthony Kennedy and his role in this month’s landmark ruling, up-holding same-sex marriage in all US states. The pointed fact that the same Anthony Kennedy had been pivotal in the June 2003 federal ruling supporting private, homosexual intercourse (sodomy) between consenting adults, as well as the June 2013 ruling against the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), led to the suggestion that June 26 – the date all three rulings were read in their respective years of 2003, 2013 and 2015 – should be named justice Anthony Kennedy day, so the article said.
And it came to me, as I read those lines: The Bible. Christianity. Replete with binding statutes between God and man. Statutes such as the sanctity of marriage that became epitomised by the Salvation bond seen between Christ and His Church. And Satan – with his cohorts, ever spoiling for pervertion; for deception within the hearts and minds of men.
6th month, 26th day, 2003: private Sodomy between consenting males approved throughtout the US.
6th month, 26th day, 2013: Defense of Marriage act struck-down throughout the US.
6th month, 26th day, 2015: same-sex marriage sweepingly approved throughout the US.
The mark of the Beast: quite plausibly seen here as decoded.
It is with a sense of responsibility and expectation of open-mindedness and decency from contributing readers, that I will begin unfolding my beliefs, sequel to this profound unraveling – and some will be aggitated at positions and opinions I will hold, so I imagine.
