    Yup, man SHOULD be 7, like god is 7... But we kinda did a "my bad..." so we are one mark short of perfection.... so the 6 gets the emphasize placed on it 666... YOUR A FAILURE, YOUR A FAILURE, YOUR A FAILURE..... You know how you say the same thing more than once... to try and hit the point home and smack that nail BAM on the head...

    Pretty good insight 17th, although I think with God it would be..YOU CAN BE BETTER, YOU CAN BE BETTER, YOU CAN BE BETTER!

    Yeah, it's my way of putting it, which can be quite poor... I am sure it would be a more encouraging reminder as you say... ONE MORE ONE MORE ONE MORE :D lol...

    I know this may sound unrelative, but has anyone seen the movie "23"? Almost anything adds up, subtracts to, divides to, or multiplies to the number 23.

    In many ways, this is another 666 puzzle.

    I thought it was pretty funny when 06-06-2006 came around and some thought the world was going to end. Last time I checked after that day the world was turning. :)

    I wonder what will happen this year on 07-07-2007?

    II Thessalonians 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. well then someone explain to me who paul is talking about then? it seems to me that he is talking about a man here. i understand the whole spirit of the antichrist thing, but come on, now, he is talking about a man here. and also what about the false prophet in revelation? or don't tell me, he is a group of people, too, right? a false prophet is a false prophet, no?

    There is always a cunning adversary that will sit back and quote scripture. Please don't get too specific.

    And as for you, O Daniel, make secret the words and seal up the book, until the time of [the] end. Many will rove about, and the [true] knowledge will become abundant."Daniel 12;4 we are now in the time of the end and true knowledge is very abundant. and rather than being the adversary quoting scripture, it could just be some one who is being fed by the faithful ones , matthew 24;45-47 who inturn are being given insight and understanding from Jesus ............... and its very good

    manmade governments reflect the fallen human condition, the mark of sin and imperfection. in a VERY big way ......666......
    (Daniel 2:44) "And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to any other people. IT WILL CRUSH AND PUT AN END TO ALL THESE KINGDOMS, and it itself will stand to times indefinite; DANIEL 2;44......... There we have it , man was not created to rule himself independant of God , and Jehovah has it all in hand .Jesus is now a reigning king and he will soon go into action. i know what side i am on.
    (Philippians 2:10) so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bend of those in heaven and those on earth and those under the ground,
    (Psalm 110:5) Jehovah himself at your right hand Will certainly break kings to pieces on the day of his anger..............
    (Isaiah 60:12) For any nation and any kingdom that will not serve you will perish; and the nations themselves will without fail come to devastation.

    If errors arise among Christians, we should set them right; and good men will be careful to suppress errors which rise from mistaking their words and actions. We have a cunning adversary, who watches to do mischief, and will promote errors, even by the words of Scripture. Whatever uncertainty we are in, or whatever mistakes may arise about the time of Christ’s coming, that coming itself is certain. This has been the faith and hope of all Christians, in all ages of the church; it was the faith and hope of the Old Testament saints. All believers shall be gathered together to Christ, to be with him, and to be happy in his presence for ever. We should firmly believe the second coming of Christ; but there was danger lest the Thessalonians, being mistaken as to the time, should question the truth or certainty of the thing itself. False doctrines are like the winds that toss the water to and fro; and they unsettle the minds of men, which are as unstable as water. It is enough for us to know that our Lord will come, and will gather all his saints unto him. A reason why they should not expect the coming of Christ, as at hand, is given. There would be a general falling away first, such as would occasion the rise of antichrist, that man of sin. There have been great disputes who or what is intended by this man of sin and son of perdition. The man of sin not only practices wickedness, but also promotes and commands sin and wickedness in others; and is the son of perdition, because he is devoted to certain destruction, and is the instrument to destroy many others, both in soul and body. As God was in the temple of old, and worshipped there, and is in and with his church now; so the antichrist here mentioned, is a usurper of God’s authority in the Christian church, who claims Divine honors. -- Matthew Henry 2Thessalonians 2:1-4

    Beasts are consistently used in the Bible as symbols of political governments. and the image of the wild beast has the same ways as the
    seven-headed wild beast
    The Bible says that "to earthling man his way does not belong. It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step." (Jeremiah 10:23) Furthermore, God warns: "Do not put your trust in nobles, nor in the son of earthling man, to whom no salvation belongs."—Psalm 146:3.

    666 is a mans number
    Understanding the meaning of 666, is much more than just solving an intriguing puzzle. Happily, Jehovah God, the very personification of love and the Source of spiritual light, has not kept his servants in the dark on this important matter...............so these following verses is very meaningful.
    (Psalm 62:9) Indeed the sons of earthling man are an exhalation, The sons of mankind are a lie. When laid upon the scales they are all together lighter than an exhalation.


    (Psalm 118:9) It is better to take refuge in Jehovah Than to trust in nobles.
    HOWEVER hard men try to bring peace and security through institutions such as the United Nations, they will never succeed. Why? Because mankind today is not at peace with God, and lasting security can be based only on man’s being at peace with his Creator. (Psalm 46:1-9; 127:1; Isaiah 11:9; 57:21)

    In agreance with 17th's sarcastic question: Yes, I think Paul is talking about Satan. Satan will stand atop the temple in Jerusalem and proclaim himself as the Christ. Of course those who know the truth will easily be able to tell that he is in fact the anti-christ.

    The real Christ will then come down after more hell reigning on the Earth and say, "Shut yo mouth up, foo!" And then back-hand Satan. (Okay, I may have paraphrased there...a lot...but I still thought it was funny.):D

    It wasn't in a sarcastic way... It was in an "obvious" way...

    Quite right 17th. Remember Jesus' trial of temptation in the desert? He showed Satan who's boss.
