Mark, or Name of the beast, or the Number of his Name

When I embarked on this portion of my 2010 study, I struggled with even how to start. I’ve been studying Scriptures since I was eleven. No other part of Scripture has seemingly been more elusive than Revelation 13 especially verse 18. When I learned the truth, I really had to struggle with what I’ve been taught all my life; to go against far more learned and respected men than myself.

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

However, I have a more pressing desire to know the truth and nothing but. The Lord put within my heart discernment. I’ve grown up spiritually with the King James Bible and I’ve been very content with using it however; I began finding wonderful gems within the Hebrew Scriptures’s original language of Hebrew. The more I learn from Scriptures the more awesome and clearly divine it becomes. The devil has been trying since the first scrolls to mock the written Word by creating varying versions and minor adjustments, but the Almighty has allowed for those wishing to know the truth to do so. I’ve written a lot of things in this study, but the fundamental issue is: you must do your own homework. Just as parents cannot live the lives of their children, I cannot walk in your journey to the truth. I can only pray that I can be a tool to help you get there. I am not implying that I have presented everything accurately and without error – by now you should have found several typos. I am only presenting what I feel I have been taught by the Lord to the satisfaction of my intellectual desire and yearning of spirit.  Truth has no agenda.

Since I accepted the Lord Jesus into my heart, I knew I was in the last days. Even Hollywood is a believer with all their end-time and end-of-the-world movies and TV shows. There is a doom-and-gloom over the Earth especially with what is going on over the entire planet; major earthquakes, wars, rumors of war, countries against countries, ethnic groups against ethnic groups, crime, famine, floods, plagues: one need only to scan the headlines. 2011 alone has seen a rise to all those things just mentioned, but not with just its “happening” but that everything is breaking all-time records and not just by a little. The recent tornados in the south surpassed the previous record by twice as many tornados in a single day. No month in recorded history has had as many tornados as April 2011.

But Jesus says in Matthew 24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

I’ve been taught just like everyone else a lie, not intentionally by the speakers or writers, but conceived by the devil over 400 years ago or more to hide the truth. I speak about the kingdom of the antichrist. 400 years ago the Roman Catholic Church was very powerful. They had the Spanish Inquisition and made and destroyed kings. They were indeed the most feared entity on the planet, and remained so for a very long time. So 400 years ago, stating that the kingdom of the antichrist was the Roman Catholic Church was only offensive to Catholics. However, today, they do not behead non-believers. They still hold, to some degree, that Jesus is God and that as a man He died on the cross for us, and rose from the dead and ascended to heaven. Although a mix of old pagan beliefs and New Testament teaching, they don’t diminish Jesus to mere mortal as Islam does today. In fact, if they knew Scripture well enough, no one, including me who used to be Catholic, would have been deceived by this lie.

I John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.”

Catholics will still admit that Jesus is the Son of God and that He is God. So by the definition laid out in Scripture, they cannot be the kingdom of the antichrist.

Matthew 12:30 He that is not with me is against me; …”

Luke 9:49-50 And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us. And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.

This should be a warning to all the Christian denominations that their division is not what the Lord intended for His bride. It is from all the misinterpretations of Scripture by unprepared preachers, scholars, and evangelists, and mostly the lazy believers that falsely allow others to live their spiritual lives, to be deceived resulting in division. I am most certainly not an ecumenicalist (doctrine of the ecumenical movement that promotes cooperation and better understanding among different religious denominations) but I believe if we stop judging one another, live by the Word of God, and be obedient to the Holy Spirit, the outcome can only be unity. The one thing I really despise are labels.

Psalms 133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

Hearing this from Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist who accepted Jesus as his Savior, I started doing my homework. Since I didn’t have any problems with Islam being the kingdom of the antichrist, I had a hard time fitting in the “mark of the beast” and the illusive “666”. But let’s start at the beginning.

Isaiah 14:12-14How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Lucifer, son of the morning = הֵילֵל בֶּן-שָׁחַר (literal meaning – Morning star son of black [as in just before the dawn]) – pronounced helel ben shahar

Lucifer in Hebrew is pronounced heylel.

Heylel means:

“Morning star” in Hebrew הֵילֵל

“Light Bearer” in Latin

“Crescent Moon” in Arabic هلال (copy and paste this into Google images and you’ll get a crescent moon)

Cresent MoonIf you type into Google translate, hilal bin shahar (هلال بن شر ) you’ll get Crescent Moon son of Evil!

The crescent moon is the symbol and the image of Islam.

Arabic uses metathesis (vowel substitution and same consonant shuffling) to generate variations of the same theme. For example, the same is done when transliterating Hebrew word for “Festival of Lights” Hanukah, or Hanukkah, or Chanukah. In Arabic, a great example is Mohamed, Muhammad, Muhammed, and Mahomet. Metathesis first starts in pronunciation. For example in English, the proper pronunciation is “TO”, but most Americans say “TA”. “LATER” but most say “LADER”. UK English still spells it CENTRE but is pronounced CENTER which is the American spelling.

  • Hilal means Crescent Moon
  • Halil means Crescent
  • Halal means [appearance of] New Moon
  • Ahillah means Crescents
  • Khalil means Friend (Kh being a hard H) (the moon being a “friend” of those at night
  • Allah is the moon-god and is the great Hilal in the sky. Ibrahim was a “friend” of Allah the moon-god, and Ibrahim pilgrimage was to Haran, the City of the Moon. (A rip off story of Abraham.)
  • Hilal – hard “h” sound – means “dwellings” and another word for the Kaaba (black cube building in Mecca) and the crescent-shaped wall on northwest side of the Kaaba is called Hatim.
  • Ihlal is the name of a ceremony around the Kaaba
  • Hilah means Ruse and is the means which one can circumvent the sharia’a law.
  • Halal meat that has been processed correctly by killing while invoking the name of Allah and killed with a crescent-shaped knife – Halal means the food is permissible to eat and is stamped with a crescent symbol. During the hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca), the sacrifice is to be made facing the crescent-shaped Hatim wall (see the layout on the next page.)201

Starting to sense a pattern?


Kaaba

Kaaba (الكعبة) in Arabic means “cube”. It is a black stone building in Mecca that is shaped like a cube and that is the most sacred Muslim pilgrim shrine; believed to have been given by Gabriel to Abraham; Muslims turn in its direction when praying.202

Kaaba in Mecca

Kaaba, Mecca, Saudi Arabia203
 Kaaba Explained Labeled elements are as follows:

  1. The Black Stone;
  2. Door of the Kaaba;
  3. Gutter to remove rainwater;
  4. Base of the Kaaba;
  5. Al-Hatim;
  6. Al-Multazam (the wall between the door of the Kaaba and black stone);
  7. The Station of Ibrahim;
  8. Angle of the Black Stone;
  9. Angle of Yemen;
  10. Angle of Syria;
  11. Angle of Iraq;
  12. Kiswa (veil covering the Kaaba);
  13. Band of marble marking the beginning and end of rounds;
  14. The Station of Gabriel. 204

As the Lord had a temple, the devil has a temple and is black as written in Isaiah 14:12 in Hebrew. Housed in this building is a meteor rock, and you guessed it, it’s black.

Black Stone

The Black Stone – accordingly black because of the sins of man – it used to be white, it is said, when it fell from heaven. Yes, they worship a meteorite!

The seven trips around the Kaaba (pilgrimage – hajj) are said to represent the journeys of Ibrahim and Mohammed being guided by the seven phases of the moon!


Allah – The ancient Moon god

The word Allah is the name of the Islamic god. The world will try to persuade you to believe that this god is the same as Jehovah of the Hebrew Scriptures. This is a boldface lie. The devil has always wanted to be called God.

Until the 4th century AD, Allah was spelled Hallah or Alaha both meaning “the god”. In Arabic the word Al Ilah “the god” became “Allah”. Without the vowels, Allah (llh) is the metathesis of hilal (hll) meaning crescent.

Allah is supposed to have 99 names. Two stand out to me:

المميت The Destroyer, The Bringer of Death 3:156
خططوا The Great Deceiver (schemer) 3:54

“Conclusion

In conclusion we can see that this objection (of context) is irrelevant because the statement in the verses is definitive (not dependent on context) and from the Quran itself we see that Allah has no problem deceiving:

  • ‘Enemies of Islam’
  • Muslims
  • Innocent people – who lived in the 600 years that it took Allah to send the Qur’an”205

Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world

Revelation 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.”

God brings life, not destruction or death. All the names of Allah are all stolen from Scriptures. Though stolen, the devil cannot stop what’s coming. Remember Daniel’s statue’s destruction? Read the rest of the story:

Daniel 2:34-35 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.”

“The stone became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth” – the Stone is the Messiah and His people fill the earth. A “mountain” is specific people. Watch.

Revelation 17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”

Revelation 17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

As you can see, the waters are the people of the earth. The mountains are specific kingdoms or in this case the seven kingdoms wherein the ten kings come from. As indicated before, these are all the kingdoms that ruled over Israel in her history. When the Messiah comes and rules the earth His kingdom will “fill the earth”. Again, since every war fought by the Messiah when He comes is against an Islamic nation, the beast is Islam – and the history of it bears this out in the seven kingdoms which have always been the enemy of Israel. Again, this beast rises up out of the “sand of the sea”.

Revelation 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.”

John was taken to the wilderness where the antichrist arises out of the beast (Islam) and causes all those that would not worship Islam to make war and overcome them. Blasphemy is written on all the heads. The second beast (the antichrist) speaks blasphemous things. The antichrist unifies Islam and causes anyone who refuses to worship Islam to die by the sword.

In Islam everything is done “in the name of Allah”. This phrase is called the Bismillah (which is the pronunciation of the phrase in Arabic) and looks like this: ( بسم الله ). Every chapter of the Quran starts with Bismillah except one.

Here is a flowery way to write it.

Bismillah

Bismillah

  • B “in”
  • Ism “Name”
  • Allah “God”

The full phrase of the Bismillah is Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim

“In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate”.

It looks like this:

full phrase of the Bismillah

Muslims often say this phrase when embarking on any significant endeavor and the phrase is considered by some to be a major pillar of Islam. This phrase is expressed in a lot of flowery calligraphy. Here are some examples so you can recognize them for yourself.

   
   
   
   

The Mark

So now we come to the meat of the matter. I’ve gone to this much detail because it’s important to understand what’s coming and if you don’t know where to look, how can you see it coming? I’m going to say something I never thought in my life I’d say this, but with the overwhelming evidence, it must be pointed out. As I stated the single most cryptic verse has been Revelation 13 specifically verse 18. Here’s the King James Version of that verse:

Revelation 13:18 “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Right off this verse invokes the need to first have wisdom and with it understating also. We quickly skim right past this part and jump into the last part. I’ve looked up every version of this verse and in many languages, but they all same the same thing as above, with the exception of two versions: The Living Translation, and the James Moffatt New Testament. Still I’m wasn’t satisfied with what was written. I’m not a bible scholar, nor do I know Greek, yet something isn’t right. Most of my adult life, I’ve hear theory upon theory and the number is, and without fail, I never had peace about the meaning. Knowing now what I do about Islam, and my firm belief it is the end-time antichrist religion, this number must fit in some way. Walid Shoebat stated what he believed it meant and showed the West what the oldest copy of the New Testament had in place of “six hundred threescore and six”.

The image206 to the left is the Codex Vaticanus of Revelation 13:18. Note the red box: that is the “translated” 666. This is the ONLY place in scripture an untranslated set of letters exists in Scripture. Therefore, until today, the only reasonable translation would be to use Gematria, substituting letters for numerical values: A=1, B=2, C=3 etc. But what if this is an erroneous translation. John was told to “bare record” of what he saw. What if he did just that, yet, since the entire book of Revelation is written in Greek, when copies were made, they were not seeing the three Greek letters highlighted, but actually and unknown language at that time: Arabic? I’m going to break this down so you can see for yourself.

This is the original

Arabic reads right to left. This is said to be

بسم Bism 

A stretch I agree, in computer font.

The second “letter” is rotated 90° counter-clockwise and mirrored. This is said to be

الله Allah

Reconnected the “letters” and you get

بسم الله

Bismillah

With Arabic script there is a real resemblance. The left part of the image below is the full Bismillah quote, I’ve separated the part “In the name of Allah” (center image) for comparison.

I challenge you to go to Google images and type in “Allah” and you’ll find images of every conceivable example, from your finger to fish, with the word Allah superimposed. Once you do that, you’ll understand that what I’ve presented isn’t nearly as implausible as you first thought. Jesus even warned about one coming in his own name. Please don’t just glance over these verses, but truly read them:

John 5:43 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

Matthew 24:4-5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

In these next verses make much more sense when you realize that the sand of the sea are desert people, and that the beast rising up out of this sea is Islam which since the birth of Israel, seven kingdoms have ruled over Israel with ten kings with the name of blasphemy on their “foreheads” – Bismillah!

Revelation 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.”

Revelation 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.”

Revelation 17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.”

With most the stolen 99 names of God Almighty for the false god Allah, you cannot but see the blasphemy Islam speaks even now.

Isaiah 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”

While researching another meaning to Revelation 13:18, the more I began to see how hidden the truth became because of how it’s translated. The word in Greek ἀριθμός (arithmos) is really only translated as “number”, “digit” or as a reckoning. However, if you look up the etymology of the word “multitude” you will find the Greek word arithmos for a great number [of people]. So using multitude instead of number you get the following understanding:

“Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding reckon [calculate, total, estimate, compute] the multitude of the beast [Islam] for it is the multitude of a man [antichrist, Mahdi – Islamic Messiah] and is “In the name of Allah (Bismillah) and the two swords”

I have given this image to many Arabic speakers and the only ones that notice right off that this is Bismillah were from Iraq!

Revelation 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Don’t think I haven’t thought about Revelation 22’s warning, but I’m not changing the Greek, but adjust the English. Anyone who knows a second language knows that there are different ways of expressing a meaning. Though the Hebrew version of this verse translates into English the same, the word for wisdom is צְפוּנָה, according to the dictionary, can be hidden, concealed, encrypted. In the verse below, the words “layeth up” in Hebrew is the word wisdom צְפוּנָה and is used twice (צְפוּנָה צְפוּנָה). When there is a double usage of a word it’s meant for emphasis; like Holy of Holies, and Song of Songs. So in the verse below the meaning is implied that the Lord hides the hidden wisdom for the righteous.

Proverbs 2:7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.”

Colossians 2:2b-3 “…the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

So “here is wisdom” is calling the reader to seek out the hidden message. Let him have understanding though. Hold on to this explanation as we continue with what the Muslims believe.

The third letter presented to John was the Greek letter Chi (χ).

Notice a pattern in the images below:

  When the Quran is displayed open, it rests in a wooded display called a Rehal. This is always the shape of the device, an X. Still not convinced? Notice the X in the images below. They are symbols of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Below are the images of Jihad (Holy War). They even cross their arms to produce an X. Notice the image of the kids; their foreheads and what’s in their right hand.

How, pray tell, can anyone after examining the facts, believe Islam is a peaceful religion. Just look how they indoctrinate their children before they can even read or write.

The creed of Islam is the Shahadah. If you wish to convert to Islam you will need to simply repeat the phrase below to an imam – Muslim cleric.

“There is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is His messenger” –

“La ilaha illa Allah, Mohammed rasul Allah”

It looks like this in computer font so you can cut-and-paste it into a translation program like Google:

لا  إله  إلا  الله , محمد  رسول  الله

The left image below is the image of the Shahadah, the Islamic creed. It’s also the writing on the flags in the children’s hand above. Notices how the letters are written, in such a way as to produce X’s. The image on the right is flag of the Somali Islamic Court.

This phrase is in the flowery calligraphy below is on the flag of Saudi Arabia.

Notice the writing on their foreheads, the Shahadah.  

Granted any protest can get ugly on all sides, but did you read the signs? Freedom to them isn’t “democracy” but the right to live under Sharia’a law! Now read these verses:

Revelation 7:3Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

Revelation 20:4 “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”

Their signs say death to those that mess with Islam or the “prophet”, who is Mohammed, and that Islam will rule the world. Also notice that the 144,000 are sealed by God. Did you know that Islam teaches that only the true Muslims will be sealed in their foreheads by their messiah – the Mahdi? 207 Non-Muslims will have black faces while true Muslims will have a face that glitters. Muslims also wait for Jesus to return (he’s been in suspended animation until the Mahdi comes) with the Mahdi and he will correct the Christians that they worship Judas who was crucified, not him. Furthermore, did you know the Islam says that this unedited verse in Revelation speaks of their Mahdi?

Revelation 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.”

If you search the Scriptures for the word images, you’ll find that it’s not always a physical mark, but symbol of something to believe in. In this case the image is also a name. What better example of this than in the bismillah? I highly recommend that you read “God’s War on Terror” by Walid Shoebat and Joel Richardson from which a lot of this is explained in much more detail.

Lastly, if you don’t believe we can repeat history, notice the Nazi salute of Hezbollah below.
