“…for it is the number of a man; the number is six hundred, six score and six.” Revalation 13:18.
A lot of considerations and opinions have been voiced over time, regarding the likely interpretation of the portion of the verse quoted above.
Here is my considered interpretation as I look through the lens of the events unfolded on June 6 of 2003, 2013 and 2015 collectively (read my first post). What I see is an on-going, systemic attempt to attack the very heart of the specific spiritual principle that reconciles men to God: that, as marriage between a man and a woman is ordained to bear fruit (offsprings), so also is it ordained that men, bonded to Christ in marriage as His bride, His church, bear spiritual fruit: newer and newer born-again men and women moving mountains throughout the earth.
The mark of the beast in Revelation 13:18, is the very identity of a man’s ability to bear fruit; the same ability by which the beast attempts to rob man of his ascention towards God in denying man alignment with the aforementioned principle.
Homesexuality, which in effect empirically negates procreation, wholesale and sytemically endorsed, will render this spiritual principle quite inoperable.
The number “6” I believe, indicates a man’s (or woman’s) spiritual position, and as it was with Adam created on the 6th day, a man cannot by his own power attain and share the 7th Position of Rest, where God alone reigns.
And so, a man (“6”) shall leave his father’s house and cling unto his wife (“6”) and they shall become one flesh (“6”). That last “6” (“one flesh”) can be made genetically manifest in any offspring that is born.
The number of a progenital man: 666, then becomes the (target) mark (or attack point) of the beast.
Discussions should follow, responsibly I hope. For, what does this all portend for our homosexual, transgender, bisexual and otherwise identity-crisised brothers and sisters, who appear to be at the forefront of this epic spiritual attack on humanity.
