Is 666 the Mark of the Beast?

• No, 666 is the number of the man at the head of the beast not his mark.

"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." Rev. 13:18


In Revelation 13:17 the Bible tells us that the "beast's" number that we are to look for is the "number of his name." Verse 18 clarifies further and says that we are to "count the number" , the "number of a man" which was mentioned in the previous verse.

"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." Rev. 13:16-17

The number 666 is important because it helps us identify the beast and its leader who has a "mark", a sign of authority that we dare not receive.

"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." Rev. 13:16-17

Who does the number 666 apply too?
Many people have speculated on who this number applies to, they have thought it applied to Caligula, Nero, Domitian, Mohammed, Napoleon, Hitler, Ronald Reagan, and John Paul II. It is pretty astounding to see how many names can have their letters counted in various ways that add up to 666.

This number, 666, however is an identifying point of the first beast of revelation 13. The scriptures say that there is a man at the head of this beast, whose number is 666. All the other points that describe this beast also must fit.

We need to let the Bible interpret itself.

Only the Bible will help you correctly identify the Antichrist Beast whose leader has the number is 666 so that you can avoid the Mark of the Beast.
