Here are some pivotal insights into the true meaning and purpose of the numeric symbol 666. Understanding the truth about this pivotal symbolic key clarifies many ages-old mysteries.
Pay close attention, profundity knocks at the door (again), listen for the key. Be Aware! Scoffing causes blindness...
Ancient wisdom symbology was designed to encapsulate, encode, and convey very specific and ultimately verifiable information to future generations. As you will see in these series of articles and in my FREE E-Book -, (alternate download site) the symbolism evidenced throughout these ancient texts is an ancient philosophical technology, contrary to the assertions of many religious leaders. One aspect of this symbology is numeric symbolism. On the other hand, mysticism and numerology are mumbo-jumbo based partially on misunderstood ancient symbology and purposeful efforts to obscure what little is known.
666 is a numeric symbol that purposely marks the Vatican/Papacy throughout history, not any single individual. The number 666 is put forth in verse 13:18 in the Book of Revelation and of course, 6+6+6 equals 18, directly matching the verse number and helping to disprove any 616 assertions. Likewise, the Vaticinia Nostradamus purposely reinforces this by the symbolism within Plate 18.
Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Men, women, and beasts symbolize organizations, groups of people, and key aspects of their character in all symbolically sealed Hebrew prophecies. Revelation never mentions the so-called antichrist. 666 is the most famous of all triangular numbers, being the sum of the whole numbers from 1 through 36.
This is further illustrated by the symbolism of the Vaticinia Nostradamus Plate 13. Notice the purposeful association between plates 13 and 18? Both contain strategic counts and arrangements of stars to help prove the truth about many age-old lies. The six stars represent both the last age or the six previous 360-year cycles on the Hebrew calendar (11th through 16th). The 17th cycle (aka seventh angel/star) started in 2001/5761. Notice the three triangles formed within the "vat10" image?
Triangular numbers were very important to Greek Pythagoreans. Accordingly, the Hebrew wisdom group, also known as the Yahad, Essene, Nazarenes, and other titles, purposely used them as pivotal symbolism pointing to Greco-Romans (i.e., Gog from the land of Magog), those who invaded, subjugated, and Hellenized ancient Judea and Palestine. The information on triangular numbers further disproves long-term efforts to hide the truth about this symbol and what it truly means.
For example, John 21:11, which speaks of Peter, the supposed first Pope, has the number 21 in its chapter and verse number. 21 is also a triangular number that is the sum of all whole numbers from 1-6. Consequently, it forms a triangle with three 6-point sides, hence a triangular representation of 666. Most of you have seen 666 arranged around an equilateral triangle. Now you can understand what it means and where it originated.
Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land (earth) full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty and three (153); and for all there were so many, yet the net was not broken.
Additionally, 153 is a triangular number that is the sum of the whole numbers 1 through 17. Also the verse number is 11 and the sum of all whole numbers from 1 through 11 equals 66 and 17-11 equals 6. Why are 11 and 17 important in this verse talking about Peter and redundantly symbolizing 666 and triangular numbers? The Second Temple period of ancient Israel was during the 11th 360-year cycle on the Hebrew calendar and the 21st century is the beginning of the 17th cycle, which began in Hebrew year 5761, which was Christian year 2001. Thereby, John 21:11 purposely links Peter, the Papacy, 666, and the 11th through 17th cycles on the Hebrew calendar. Notice also that the prophecies of St. Malachy say that the Papacy will end shortly, which will be during the 21st century and 17th cycle. Here is Wisdom!!

There is a foolproof way to verify the truth and expose centuries-old religious deceptions. It also proves why it is complete folly to trust anything the Vatican and religious leaders tell us about ancient history or much else. It is the common thread connecting why the ancient Hebrews, Yahad/Essene, Jews, Gnostics, Cathars, Templars, Dead Sea Scrolls, DaVinci Code, and others have been targets of Rome's ire and evil machinations. The Vatican and its secret society cohorts don't want you to understand that the ancient Hebrew symbology in all of these texts purposely encodes and exposes the truth about them. Furthermore, the structure of ancient wisdom symbology verifiably encodes the rules to decode messages built with it. This is what they most fear you will discover.
If the Bible, Quran, and other canons represented the literal truth or even accurate history, there would be no need for faith in the assertions of deceptive and duplicitous religious leaders. It is undeniable the New Testament is awash with ancient Hebrew symbolism and allegory. The same is evidenced in the Old Testament, Dead Sea Scrolls, Gnostic texts, biblical apocrypha, Quran, DaVinci Code, and other related sources. All ancient religious, mystical, and wisdom texts have been shrouded in mystery for millennia for one primary reason: The ability to understand their widely evidenced symbology was lost in antiquity. How do we finally solve these ages-old mysteries? To recast an often-used political adage: It's [the] symbology, stupid!
It is beyond amazing that the Vatican and religious leaders still insist that the Gospels are the literal truth. Every miracle purported for Jesus has multiple direct symbolic parallels in the Old Testament, Apocalypse, Dead Sea Scrolls, Egyptian-Nubian, and other symbolic narratives and traditions. Recasting the symbolism of earlier Hebrew texts as literal events in the New Testament is one of the central deceptions associated with Christianity. All three so-called faiths of Abraham are guilty of the same errors and deception. This is part of the secret knowledge held by the ancient Gnostics, Templars, Cathars, and others, which is presented with dramatic effect in the DaVinci Code. None of these narratives or stories were ever intended as the literal truth. This fact is the key to unraveling many ages-old mysteries and exposing the truth about the Vatican's long-term deceptions.
Moreover, the following Washington Post article (The Book of Bart) describes how many changes and embellishments were made to New Testament texts over the centuries, unequivocally demonstrating they are not original, infallible, or truthful. When you combine proof that the New Testament Gospels are not wholly literal with proof that these texts were heavily reworked in the early years of Christianity, you are left with only one possible conclusion. The Vatican has long lied to everyone about the central tenets and history of Christianity. This revelation also proves they are not the Creator's representatives but Her long-time opponents. The recent hoopla over the Gospel of Judas and DaVinci Code demonstrates they are still desperately trying to deceive the world and obfuscate their true nature and activities.
It's no wonder the Vatican fears the truth more than anything else. As further proof of these assertions, seek to understand the symbolic significance of my name (Seven Star Hand) and you will have proof beyond disproof that Jews, Christians, and Muslims have long been duped by the great deceivers I warned humanity about over the millennia. What then is the purpose of "faith" but to keep good people from seeking to understand the truth?
Now comes justice, hot on its heels...
Here is Wisdom!!
