666 Beast Empire
“Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.” (Rev. 13:11)
“Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.” (Rev. 13:18)
The Holy Bible is the
history book of the world
n Genesis tells us how the world began.
n Revelation tells us how the world will end.
n Immediately before the Return of Jesus Christ there is the Great Tribulation
(Mt. 24:21-22, 29-31).
n During that time the world is under the control of the 666 Beast Empire.
Nature of the Beast
n The beast is distinguished from man who is created in God’s image (Gen. 1:26-27; 2:7; Ecc. 3:21).
n The beast has no spirit therefore has no God consciousness.
n In Scripture it is figurative of the sensual, ferocious and brutal natures that belong to the wild and untamed animals (Ezek. 5:17; 14:15, 21).
n The word “beast” is used figuratively of brutal men (Ecc. 3:18; 2 Pet. 2:12; Jude 10).
n The apostle Paul wrote: “I have fought with beasts at Ephesus” (1 Cor. 15:32).
n A wild beast is the symbol of a selfish, tyrannical monarchy.
n The four beasts in Daniel 7:3, 17, 23 represent the four kingdoms (Ezek. 34:28; Jer. 12:9).
n In the book of Revelation the beasts obviously mean worldly powers,
n Their rising out of the sea and the earth indicate they owe their origin and power to the commotion of the people (Rev. 13:1; 15:2; 17:8)
Spirit of the Antichrist
n The beast is also called the Antichrist
n Here is the definition of the Antichrist (1 Jn. 4:1-3).
1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,
3 Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world
n “Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.” (1 Jn. 2:18)
Many Antichrists in the End Time
n Many Christian eschatologists are looking for one super-powerful individual to fit the role of the Antichrist.
n In truth the Holy Bible informs us there are many antichrists in the End Time.
n The Antichrists are those that deny the Lord Jesus Christ is God who manifested Himself in the flesh and they are strongly opposed to Christianity.
n Antichrists can exist anywhere and in any age.
The Founder of Islam is the
Archetype of an Antichrist
n The Qur'an teaches many things that contradicts what the Holy Bible teaches about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Here are some examples:
n Sura 19:20,34, Jesus praised his birth and then said, “I am the servant of Allah.” And Allah teaches, “It is not for God to take a son unto Him.” Here we have Jesus speaking denying everything he said in the Bible concerning Himself.
n In Sura 10:68-70 They say: “God hath begotten a son!” - Glory be to Him! He is self- sufficient! His are all things in the heavens and on earth! No warrant have ye for this! say ye about God what ye know not? Say: “Those who invent a lie against God will never prosper.” A little enjoyment in this world!- and then, to Us will be their return, then shall We make them taste the severest penalty for their blasphemies.” Mohammed denies Jesus is the Son of God.
n Sura 5, section 16, verse 119, reads: “And behold! God will say: “O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, “Worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of God”? He will say: “Glory to thee! Never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, thou wouldst indeed have known it. Thou knowest what is in my heart, though I have not known what is in thine. For thou knowest in full all that is hidden.” Mohammed denies Jesus is God.
n Any Muslim who believes Jesus Christ is God has committed the unforgivable sin, that will send him to hell. Sura 43:59 states “Jesus was no more than a mortal whom Allah favored and made an example to the Israelites. They are unbelievers who say God is Messiah, Mary’s son.” Mohammed is indeed a false prophet and an Antichrist in the very sense of the word. Today's teachers and followers of Mohammed are also the antichrists
Mohammed is ranked the Most Influential
Person in Human History - Michael Hart
n If Satan wants to choose a person to be the Antichrist in the End Time Mohammed would be his obvious choice.
n Michael Hart in "The 100, A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in the History," New York, 1978., p. 33 http://www.adherents.com/adh_influ.html
n "My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of world's most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in the history who was supremely successful on both the secular and religious level. It is probable that the relative influence of Islam has been larger than the combined influence of Jesus Christ and St. Paul on Christianity. It is this unparalleled combination of the secular and religious influence which I feel entitles Muhammad to be considered to be the most influential single figure in human history."
George Bernard Shaw called
Mohammed the Saviour of Humanity
n Here is what Sir George Bernard Shaw wrote about Mohammed.
"He must be called the Saviour of Humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it much needed peace and happiness." (The Genuine Islam, Singapore, Vol. 1, No. 8, 1936)
The 666 Beast Empire
n “Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.” (Rev. 13:18)
n Let me share with you what I think about “the number of the beast” which is “the number of a man.”
n God created man on the sixth day therefore the number of man is six (6).
n There are three main activities in the government that belong to man.
n They are politics, religion and economics.
n The number 666 indicates
1. the Beast’s politics,
2. the Beast’s religion and
3. the Beast’s economics
The Beast Politics
n The 666 Beast Empire wants to control the world politics.
n “Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.” (Rev. 13:1)
n The beast with seven heads represents 7 previous empires that have ruled in the Middle-East -- Mediterranean region. The ten horns will be 10 Islamic nations that join forces to conquer the world, which has been the goal of Islam from its beginning.
n When Mohammed came to power in 622 A.D. he conquered all of Saudi Arabia and made its king subject to his teachings. Mohammed's followers conquered all the 17 kingdoms of the former Kings that formed the Arab Muslim Abbasid Empire of 750 A.D. Many of these kingdoms in the Middle East are now powerful members of Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). for "The Beast Empire in the World" Web Site
n OPEC, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries includes Algeria, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Venezuela. For years there were only 10; currently there are 11 members. Of all the countries in OPEC only Venezuela does not have a dominant Muslim population.

Majority of Oil Reserves gives the
An important characteristic of contemporary Islam is that the oil boom gave Islamic nations political clout throughout the world because they controlled the majority of the oil reserves. “Oil wealth gave Muslims the power to raise or lower oil prices, to buy telephone systems from this company or helicopters from that country, to give aid or withhold it. . .[and] the west hardly reacted at all. This passivity heightened the perception among Muslims that a momentous shift in power had occurred, and they were exhilarated by it.”
The Beast Religion
n “Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.” (Rev. 13:11)
n Iran insists its uranium enrichment program is for peace but most likely it is for the development of nuclear weapons of mass destruction.
n In the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attack on America, Muslims clerics tried to promote Islam as a religion of peace. Even President George Bush, in order to prevent further bloodshed in America did that, but Evangelist Franklin Graham said: "The god of Islam is not the same God of the Christian or the Judeo-Christian faith. It is a different god, and I believe a very evil and a very wicked religion.“
n Osama bin Laden hates America because our nation is the only one that can stop him from achieving his evil ambition of world domination. Secondly, we are the staunch supporter of Israel that he seeks to destroy. Thirdly, we have vast interests in Saudi-Arabia. One of his doctrines is that no infidel (non-Muslims) can occupy any land belonging to a Muslim nation. Osama and the Al Queda terrorists are trying to muster the support of all Muslim nations to fight against America
n Today Islam is the fastest growing religion on earth, and approximately 18% of the world's population is Muslim. Today, Islam extends from Turkey and the western coast of Africa across southern Asia to the Philippines and Indonesia, and north from India. There has also been a substantial expansion in the twentieth century of Muslims in North and South America, where there are approximately 4 million followers spread throughout the region. However, Asia maintains the highest proportion of Muslims in the world.
The Beast Economics
n “And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one can buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Rev. 13:16-17)
n The 666 Beast Empire chose the World Trade Center as its primary target to demonstrate its evil power that anyone in the world who does not accept his mark, which is his political ideology, his perverted form of Islamic religion and his twisted system of economics, cannot “buy or sell.”
n In addition to the immediate devastating impact of the attacks, there has been a significant disruption of international, national, state and local economic systems, including, financial, transportation, trade, business and tourism activities.
n The terrorist attack on the United States affects world economics.
Inflation caused by Rising Oil Prices
n “When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come and see." So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine." (Rev. 6:5-6)
n Many bible scholars correctly interpret this to be a reference to rampant inflation on the earth. The “pair of scales” symbolizes food being weighed out like they do in the grocery stores and supermarkets. The price of wheat and barley will be very high. A quart of wheat would provide one meal for one person, but it would cost a denarius, a whole day’s wage which is not enough to support a family.
n During the biblical time oil was used for cooking and lighting the home (1 Kn. 17:123-16; Mt. 25:4-9). Wine was used for medicinal and healing purposes (Lk. 10:34; 1 Tim. 5:23). Oil and wine were essential items in every home. Today, oil is used not only for cooking and lighting, but also for heating our homes and provides fuel for transportation
n “Do not harm the oil and the wine” is the instruction that the apostle John heard. It means “do not tamper with” these two essential commodities for normal living conditions. The wicked and evil 666 Beast Organization controls and maintains the high price of petroleum oil in the world market thus causing inflation.
The Beast Empire in the World
OPEC, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries includes Algeria, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Venezuela. For years there were only 10; currently there are 11 members. Of all the countries in OPEC only Venezuela does not have a dominant Muslim population. According to OPEC’s website (emphasis added),
“Membership requires ability to export oil and sharing of the ideals of the Organization. Twice a year, or more frequently if required, the Oil and Energy Ministers of the OPEC Members meet to decide on the Organization's output level, and consider whether any action to adjust output is necessary in the light of recent and anticipated oil market developments.” [That defines their control and the risk to any nation cut off from oil supplies.] 
The Lord Jesus Christ overcomes
the 666 Beast Empire (Rev. 19:11-21)
11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.
13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.
15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, "Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,
18 that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great."
19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.
20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.
May God bless you
