Number of the beast and UFO aliens part of the end times.
The Antichrist will be Jewish based on Bible prophecy correctly understood.
1. In Daniel 11:36,37 we are told, "And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers." This passage, it is evident, refers to and describes none other than the coming Antichrist. But what we wish to call special attention to is the last sentence quoted—"The God of his fathers." What are we to understand by this expression? Why, surely, that he is a Jew, an Israelite, and that his fathers after the flesh were Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—for such is the invariable meaning of "the fathers" throughout the Old Testament Scriptures.
2. The very name "Antichrist" argues strongly his Jewish nationality. This title "Antichrist" has a double significance. It means that he will be one who shall be "opposed" to Christ, one who will be His enemy. But it also purports that he will be a counterfeit Christ, an imitation Christ, a pro-Christ, a pseudo Christ. He will pose as the real Messiah of Israel. In such case he must be a Jew.
3. This mock Christ will be "received" by Israel. The Jews will be deceived by Him. They will believe that he is indeed their long-expected Messiah. They will accept him as such. Proofs of this will be furnished in a later chapter. But if this pseudo Christ succeeds in palming himself off on the Jews as their true Messiah he must be a Jew, for it is unthinkable that they would be deceived by any Gentile.
THE MORTAL HEAD WOUND OF THE BEAST
First of all it is important to understand that the Greek word for beast used by John in the new testament is the word for beast which means "not human". However in the Greek you have multiple usages for the word beast depending on which version of the Greek word for beast you decide to use. Some of those other Greek words for beast that John could have used but did not is the Greek word for beast which means: "beast of burden", such as an Oxen, or cattle. John could have also have selected the Greek word for beast which means: "ruthless man". However John decided rather to use the Greek word for beast which means "not human". Because of this usage many Bible teachers have wrongly taught that the beast is only a system of governance of the beast, but is not a literal person or being. When erred prophecy teachers or Christians consider the mortal head wound and assume that the mortal head wound is only symbolic rather than an actual person that dies and then comes back to life, then the correct interpretation of the prophetic text falls apart. When you misunderstand the mortal head John was wishing to convey in scripture as being symbolic only rather than literal as John meant it, then you have real problems understanding the prophecy correctly.
The beast is a real person or being, the scriptures clearly connect the beast to a future man and his number 666. So how do you reconcile what seems like a contradictory statement for the Greek meanings of the word beast and the one John the Revelator chose. There are only a couple ways, 1.) The beast could be a fallen angel in human form, but spiritually is not human. 2.) The beast is an extraterrestrial that does not look human but comes to earth claiming to come in order to help prevent man from destroying himself through war. If this is the case then the world might also see the UFO or UFO's he arrives in. However though the world will marvel at this non human being if this ends up being the manifestation nevertheless he will be a fallen angel regardless of his appearance. The false prophet also called Antichrist is the man the scripture is referring to in Revelation 13:16-18 in relation to the calculation of 666. The bottom line is this the false prophet will be Jewish man and his name will calculate to 666. Let me state that again, the false prophet and the Antichrist are the same person. After the beast rises from the dead from his mortal head wound then the false prophet also called the Antichrist will have the authority of the beast in the beast's presence. In either case calculate the name of any world leader that attempts to make a peace agreement in the middle east and the name of any world leader that rises politically.
If the extraterrestrial UFO situation ends up being the application of "not human" from the Greek text, then the beast may be able to control and involve UFO's to accomplish his goals. The scripture states that the whole world will marvel at the beast. (be greatly astounded) A UFO extraterrestrial connection would surely contribute to that astonishment. The beast will also have the ability to subdue all nations on earth at some point in time. In fact this ability of the beast to subdue all nations is so great that according to scripture the world declares, "who is like the beast and who can make war with him." UFO's in this case could be used by the beast for the subduing of the nations even using UFO's as weapons. So be ready for the possibility of UFO's being involved in Satan's final deception and never and I mean never under any conditions take the future buying and selling mark of the beast.
For those that have difficulty researching the Greek because of poor on-line resources, especially those who may disagree with me concerning the "not Human" definitions, let me give you something much easier to research that makes it perfectly clear that the beast in Revelation 13 is not a system of governance, or merely a symbol but rather a real person or being. You will find it in Rev 19:20.
Revelation 19:20 Then the Beast was apprehended, and with him the False Prophet who had performed the signs before him, by which he had deceived those who received the mark of the Beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.
Here’s are two points: Notice the word “apprehended” here. This is the same word used when they “apprehended” Jesus in the garden. “Piazo,” To squeeze, that is, seize (gently by the hand [press], or officially [arrest], or in hunting [capture]): - apprehend, catch, lay hand on, take. See that. This word means “to arrest”, and “to apprehend.” How can you arrest a country? How can you arrest a “symbol”? How can you arrest a “entire system of world governance. So the interpretation of the beast being a symbol only is impossible. The beast is a real person or being. If the beast is not a person or being then how do you cast him alive into the lake of fire? So whether UFO's end up being involved in Satan's final deception or not, the scriptures does support the possibility of it occurring so be on guard for it and do not be deceived.
666 vs 616
The recent debates on 616 is just the rehashing of an old debate that was settled thousands of years ago. The rehashing is based on an old fragment found recently that has the 616 rendering rather than 666. There are hundreds of complete copies that have the 666 rendering and less than a half dozen that have the 616 rendering. This 616 debate was already settled in the early church thousands of years ago. The current 616 debate is nothing more than a distraction of error by erred scholars. Irenaeus discusses this copy error of 616 in the 1st century and stated it is a copy error, along with his statement that 666 is the correct number. Irenaeus states: "Such, then, being the state of the case, and this number being found in all the most approved and ancient copies of the Apocalypse, and those men who saw John face to face bearing their testimony to it; while reason also leads us to conclude that the number of the name of the beast, if reckoned according to the Greek mode of calculation by the value of the letters contained in it, will amount to six hundred and sixty and six; that is, the number of tens shall be equal to that of the hundreds, and the number of hundreds equal to that of the units for that number which expresses the digit six being adhered to throughout, indicates the recapitulations of that apostasy, taken in its full extent, which occurred at the beginning, during the intermediate periods, and which shall take place at the end, ” I do not know how it is that some have erred following the ordinary mode of speech, and have vitiated the middle number in the name, deducting the amount of fifty from it, so that instead of six decades they will have it that there is but one. I am inclined to think that this occurred through the fault of the copyists, as is wont to happen, since numbers also are expressed by letters; so that the Greek letter which expresses the number sixty was easily expanded into the letter Iota of the Greeks."
In this rather obscurely expressed passage, Irenaeus was proposing even in the second century - a century before this oldest surviving copy that old, Greek copies of Revelation contained an error of copying in which the Greek letter xi with gematraic value 60 was wrongly copied into the Greek letter iota with number value 10.
The Great 666 calculation error. The NERO calculation of 666 - Nero was not the Antichrist
Nero (Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus); Birth and death: 15 December 37 – 9 June 68) Reigned: was Roman Emperor from 54 to 68
Titus Caeser Flavius Domitianus) Birth and Death: 24 October 51 - 18 September 96) Reigned:– was Roman Emperor 14 September 81 - 18 September 96
It is well documented that Nero had John banished to the Island of Patmos, it is also well documented that Nero had been dead almost 20 years before John wrote the book of Revelation. Titus Caeser was in power when John wrote the book of Revelation. The book of Revelation obviously is a prophetic book, so it is impossible for a dead Nero to have been the Antichrist. Nero had been dead for almost for 20 years before John wrote the book of Revelation. Not to mention Nero never enforced the mark of the beast in his lifetime as required by Revelation 13. This is a mandatory point of prophecy and scripture to prove the Antichrist, something Nero never did. Nero was not the Antichrist
