Who knew? The Mark of the Beast Really is 666.

The number 666 is infamous, made so by the phrase in the final chapters of the Christian Bible: 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.

In our next couple posts, we’ll explain what this has to do with the geula (final redemption) and Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag’s last words, and separately, what is has to do with the Tree-of-life.

Meanwhile, today we’ll supply some of that yearned for wisdom: what the number 666 has to do with both the beast and the man, as given to us by the Tanakh (Old Testament), several hundred years “Revelations” was written.

The answer lies in the Hebrew and its gematria, even the English translation of Ecclesiastes 3:21, “Who knows the spirit of man whether it goes upward, and the spirit of the beast whether it goes downward to the earth?” is evocative of the much later written verse in the Christian Revelations.

TIKKUN 46 of the Tikkune Zohar brings up Ecclesiastes 3:21 in its discussion of בְּרֵאשִׁית , “In the beginning”, the first word of the Torah.  It forms two words , בָּרָא   שִׁית, meaning “created six(6)”.
The Zohar tells us that this refers to the six (6) bundled sefirot (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin (chesed gevurah, tiferet, netzach, hod and yesod), which form the central column.  It is represented by the letter Vav of the Tetragrammaton YHVH name. It is the connector between Binah (the upper world), which is the provider of the light, to Malchut (our dimension).

“From Binah came out the six days that are the element of time that create the process. Working and following the process during the six days lead us to the seventh day when we have rest and ability to connect to the Light of Binah.”

Then the Zohar, brings up the following verse from Ecclesiastes, where we also find the famous 28 Times (A time to live, a times to die, etc)

Ecclesiastes 3:21
“מִי יוֹדֵעַ, רוּחַ בְּנֵי הָאָדָם–הָעֹלָה הִיא, לְמָעְלָה; וְרוּחַ, הַבְּהֵמָה–הַיֹּרֶדֶת הִיא, לְמַטָּה לָאָרֶץ”
“Who knows the spirit of man whether it goes upward, and the spirit of the beast whether it goes downward to the earth?”

So let’s understand what this verse has to do with 6 and more importantly for this conversation, 666.  The prefix Hey (H) in Hebrew is the article meaning “the” and in this case it was inserted somewhat superfluously 6 times in the verse. When we discount it, we find that the words in the verse that pertain to the beast part of the spirit that goes down (הַבְּהֵמָה–הַיֹּרֶדֶת) has the gematria (numerical value) of 666, and moreover, for those familiar with the apocalyptic predictions of Revelations and the 42 month period, it’s important to note that the 666 value 2 word (10-letter) phrase for beast begins on the 32nd and ends on the 42nd letter of this verse.

It’s significant that the tree-of-life is structured with 32 Paths of Wisdom, that link together the 10 sefirot, for as Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed memory points out, these total 42 and are associated with the 42Letter Name of G-d.

At this point we can easily say that the number and its association with the 666 had it’s origins with the writings in Ecclesiastes, but that would simply be doing a disservice to those very profound writings.

The verse clearly and symmetrically  juxtaposes the spirit of a mad with that of a beast, moving in opposite directions, one up, one down. But that’s on the surface. Underneath, we find that once again without the superfluous prefix (H), the words for Man (בְּנֵי הָאָדָם) also have the gematria value (less the kolel of 1) of 666. Literally the words state “son of the Man (Adam).

Is the verse saying we have the beast within us and that negativity will sink to the earth, while the pure spirit will rise up?

Who knows? The gematria with the kolel of the verse’s first 3 words (מִי יוֹדֵעַ, רוּחַ) is 358, that of Moshiach, the Messiah. And even more surprisingly, the gematria of the last 3 words (הִיא, לְמַטָּה לָאָרֶץ) with the kolel (3) for the 3 words is 424, the same as that of Moshiach Ben David.

Once again, the concept if time slips into the writings of Ecclesiastes, as we begin Man’s journey with Moshiach, a primordial figure and energy (consciousness) that existed before the counting of time, which began with Adam. Then our journey through physicality ends with Moshiach Ben David, after the negativity (represented by the beast) is separated out and drawn into the earth.

But When?

This verse provides several hints to the answers. It can be found in The Divine Calendarits’ 5th word, the name/word Adam (EDM), which the sages tell us is an acronym for Adam-David-Moshiach and if we make the midpoint in David’s life (2889 HC) the halfway point to Moshiach Ben David, then the date would be 5778, just Rav Ashlag suggested based on the kabbalistic calculation using the principle of 2/3 (.666). See The Divine Calendar for a fuller explanation. The halfway point coincides with the middle 6 words of this special verse whose final letters equal exactly 424, once again the numerical value of Moshaich Ben David.

The next hint is found in the total gematria of the verse, 2084 when we subtract 53 for the number of letters and 14 for the number of words in the verse as the Arizal was apt to do, and get 2017, as in the year 2017 ce, or 5777-5778 HC.

And finally, we spoke of how the first 3 words of the 14 words and the last 3 words and also the middle 6 words all add up to either Moshiach or Moshaich Ben David, but that leaves two words unaccounted for Bnei H’Adam (בְּנֵי הָאָדָם) and together they add up to in simple gematria, 107, which is curious as we know that the sum of all the integers through 107 is 5778.

And then there is the gematria sofit of the final letters in the 14 words of the verse, which the sages tell us point to the future and in this case they add up to 2028 or 10 years more than 2018 ce. Does this indicate a 10 year process for the 10 sefirot beginning in 2018. Who knows?

As for the beast…

The words used for the beast (הַבְּהֵמָה–הַיֹּרֶדֶת) can be permuted to form H’BrYT DM, meaning the covenant of blood or H’BrYT DMH, meaning the covenant of her blood, which is also the angel of the death level.

Ecclesiastes 3:21
“מִי יוֹדֵעַ, רוּחַ בְּנֵי הָאָדָם–הָעֹלָה הִיא, לְמָעְלָה; וְרוּחַ, הַבְּהֵמָה–הַיֹּרֶדֶת הִיא, לְמַטָּה לָאָרֶץ”
“Who knows the spirit of man whether it goes upward, and the spirit of the beast whether it goes downward to the earth?”

Indeed, who knows? With the promise of Moshiach and the Tree-of-life reality upon us, we should make sure we are doing everything we can to separate ourselves from the beast within us, the klippot (negative husks) and selfish desires that weigh us down and anchor us to this earth.

As stated earlier, we’ll soon explain what this has to do with the geula (final redemption) and Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag’s last words, and separately, what is has to do with the Tree-of-life.

Armed with wisdom, may G-d bless us all with the strength to overcome our own nature.

  1. May G-d bless us all with the strength to overcome our own nature. Amen my brothers and sisters. Amen. Thank you Ezra for your benevolent work. May your extraordinary insight not only be an inspiration to all but of divine influence, as infallible as the Holy Scriptures. Amen

  2. What a strange coincidence:
    ecclesiastes 3:21 => 321
    5778 = 18 x 321
    Thus 321 means “upward”?
    And the spirit of the beast, going downward, is then possibly 123?
    47 x 123 = 5781 or 2021 AD.
    Could it be, that there are 3 years of overcrossing beast down and spirit up?

  3. Here’s another way to look at the number 666:

    The Fahrenheit scale sets the freezing point of water at 32 degrees (where does 32 also appear?) and the boiling point at 212 degrees. What is the difference of those two numbers? (212 – 32 = 180). 180 is also the number of degrees in a triangle. Two triangle make up the star of David, one representing alchemical fire and the other water.

    The average human body temperature in Fahrenheit is 98.6 degrees. What happens when the Fahrenheit scale is transposed 32 degrees so that freezing point equals zero?

    212 transposed 32 degrees 180

    98.6 66.6

    32 0

    So, the average human body temperature is 66.6 degrees.

  4. Sorry Jasen please explain how did you get from
    212 transposed 32 degrees 180 to
    66.6 ?
    Lots of light

  5. The Bible says that we all have a nature that is sinful. That nature was received by Adam when he chose to obey Satan in the garden. So we all do have the beast within us. The only way we can separate ourselves from the beast is by receiving the spirit of God into our bodies by faith alone in God alone. The indwelling Spirit restrains the Beast and allows us to live a life of righteousness. A life that is in the world but not of the world.
    For Daniel’s 70th week ( Daniel 9:20-27 & 12) to occur before the return of the Messiah, the Restrainer, the indwelling Spirit must be removed. This allows the Anti-Christ to take full control of his kingdom during the the Great Tribulation. This period sets the stage for the messiah’s Christ’s triumphant return to judge the unbelievers and set up His kingdom on earth where he will reign for 1000 years.
    The Torah code that you brilliantly reveal in your books and e-mails shows us that the year for the Messiah to come is 2018. I believe the current the restrainers must be removed from the earth seven years earlier in 2011 (or, at the latest the middle of 2014). Things are really getting exciting and each day brings us closer to the Lord’s eternal victory and the establishment of His Kingdom.

  6. The value of the name Shechem ben Chamor = 666
    The value of the name Moshe Dodo ben Barzilai = 666

    Shechem lusted after materialism; he sought the blessing that rested upon the head of Israel, and he took the “mark” of the circumcision upon his flesh, arguing to the Gentiles, “Their livestock, their possessions, and all their animals – will they not be ours?”. No one could buy or sell with Israel without receiving his mark. Everyone that received his mark died – they were murdered by Shimeon and Levi, enforcers of the covenant. Sound familiar?

    In truth though, Shechem is the donkey that brings Moshiach. It is for the man whose number is 666 to reveal all the wealth of the Torah; this task is not for another, nor will it be possible for the Moshiach to come without such a man. He will rule all nations with an irod rod and shatter the hand of the Holy People; he will tread upon the Torah and break it to bits; and he will awaken those that lie in dust. 600,000 souls will awaken to eternal life.

  7. Good day Brothers in Light,
    In the manner of closing and opening; going clockwise is closing [going right] and counter clockwise is opening [left]. The number 9 corresponds to life of man, for O is the spirit and the vertical line that supports it is man himself [the number one]. When this number 9 moves clockwise it therefore closes the spirit of man to light thus when the O has reached the lower position to become the number 6 then man has completely close himself to light but opened to darkness hence now he lives in the governance of evil. The numbers of 666 is revealed in the lobes of the brain when man’s knowledge has reach the extremes of the EGO. Love and blessings to all.

  8. אֵין אָדָם אֲשֶׁר לֹא יֶחֱטָא “No man who does not sin” (2 Chronicles 6:36) = 666.

    יוֹם יְהוָה, הוּא-חֹשֶׁךְ וְלֹא-אוֹר “The day of YHWH is darkness and not light” (Amos 5:18) = 666.

  9. apocalypse of John is the 66th. book of christian bible and the chapter is 13,18:

    1+3+1+8 = 13 it is the last chapter and so it must be fulfill — that the last christ have to fullfil the book and a new one must be introduced, isn`it?

  10. also the first prime numbers ab to 17:

    2^2 + ……..7^2……11^2……17^2 = 666

    if you write down the numbers 1 to 36 and sum it up then the result is 666 and in the diagonales if you sum it up you get 111 and 111 on both sides of the square

    1 2 3 4 5 6
    7 8 9 10 11 12
    13 14 15 16 17 18
    19 20 21 22 23 24
    25 26 27 28 29 30
    31 32 33 34 35 36

  11. I am not sure if you understand: there is no lucifer comming, no “antichrist”, it is only the endchrist, the last , to fulfil the time, because it is the end of the book in capitel 66.

    We need a new one.

    “i am the first and the last” “alpha and omega”, “aleph and tav”

  12. i am not sure, but i have heard that 111 is also a holy number?

    666 is not evil! it is a code in prime numbers, which are really natural in the law of mathematics and natural rules. The prime numbers up to 19 are very interesting, like a code. Prime numbers are groups around 6 very often
