THE DRAGON, THE BEAST AND THE FALSE PROPHET - 666 THE MARK OF THE BEAST
The beast in the Book of Revelation chapter 13 may refer to two characters, the first beast, The Antichrist, comes "out of the sea’" (the sea is symbolically the restless masses of the nations), the second beast, the false prophet, comes "out of the earth’" ("Land" with the definite article is Israel/the church). Here we have the unholy "trinity" - the dragon (Satan), the Antichrist (world ruler) and the false prophet (harbinger). The Bible informs us about an end time scenario in which a mark will seal those people who take it as being eternally damned. Revelation gives us a riddle about the number of the beast which also translates itself into a mark:
Also it (another beast-the false prophet) causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead,so that no one can buy or sell who does not have the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.This calls for wisdom: let anyone with understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a person. Its number is six hundred sixty-six, the number of a person. (Revelation 13/16-18; see also 14/11; 16/2; 19/20; 20/4)
The Star of David, known in Hebrew as Magen David which means the Shield of David is the symbol of Israel. It is considered to be both a Jewish and a Christian symbol, but there is no evidence that King David ever used this symbol - it is not found anywhere in the Bible or in Jewish literature. The six pointed star/hexagram is one of the most ancient and universal symbols - it was the symbol of Molech and Ashtoreth. It is a prominent symbol in Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, modern Judaism and many other religions and occult belief systems.
The hexagram can be traced back to King Solomon as the Seal of Solomon. King Solomon was given promises by God that the kingdom would be established through him, though it was conditional: I will establish his kingdom forever if he continues resolute in keeping my commandments and my ordinances, as he is today. (1 Chronicles 28:5-7; see also 2 Chronicles 7/17-18) Solomon seemingly loved the Lord at the beginning of his reign, but he did not continue to be resolute in his loyalty to God . He violated all the specific commands of God on an unprecedented scale. Solomon’s apostasy seems to have begun when he married Pharaoh’s daughter, a thing the Israelites were forbidden to do due to the danger of idolatry (Exodus 34/16) At the end of his life Solomon ‘loved many foreign women’ and he was a major type of the Antichrist:
King Solomon loved many foreign women along with the daughter of Pharaoh: Moabite, Ammonite, Edomite, Sidonian, and Hittite women,from the nations concerning which the Lord had said to the Israelites, "You shall not enter into marriage with them, neither shall they with you; for they will surely incline your heart to follow their gods"; Solomon clung to these in love.Among his wives were seven hundred princesses and three hundred concubines; and his wives turned away his heart.For when Solomon was old, his wives turned away his heart after other gods; and his heart was not true to the Lord his God, as was the heart of his father David.For Solomon followed Astarte the goddess of the Sidonians, and Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.So Solomon did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and did not completely follow the Lord, as his father David had done.Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the abomination of Moab, and for Molech the abomination of the Ammonites, on the mountain east of Jerusalem.He did the same for all his foreign wives, who offered incense and sacrificed to their gods.Then the Lord was angry with Solomon, because his heart had turned away from the Lord, the God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice,and had commanded him concerning this matter, that he should not follow other gods; but he did not observe what the Lord commanded. (1 Kings 11)
Solomon was no average backslider. The worship of the foreign gods Astarte, Milcom, Chemosh (Ba’al) and Molech (Set, Saturn) involved heterosexual and homosexual sexual orgies, human sacrifice and cannibalism. The result was that the Lord was angry with Solomon to the extent that He said: I will surely tear the kingdom from you and give it to your servant. (1 Kings 11/11)
The number 666 is associated with Solomon in 1 Kings 10:14 and 2 Chronicles 9:13 which state that the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred sixty-six talents of gold - the number of the beast in Revelation 13/18.
The Israelites clearly had a ‘star god’ which was one of the reasons God removed them to Babylon:
No; you took along the tent of Moloch, and the star of your god Rephan, the images that you made to worship; so I will remove you beyond Babylon.' (Acts 7/43)
You shall take up Sakkuth your king, and Kaiwan your star-god, your images, which you made for yourselves….. (Ezra 5/26)
Satan’s title as ‘Day Star, son of Dawn’ in the NRSV indicates that the star is an important title for Satan.
How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, son of Dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, you who laid the nations low! (Isaiah 14/12 [New Revised Standard Version])
There is quite a bit of controversy about the Hebrew word הֵילֵ֣ל (Strong’s number 1966). הֵילֵ֣ל was translated as Lucifer by Jerome in the Latin Vulgate in 405AD which subsequently it found its way into the King James Version. הֵילֵ֣ל haliel comes from the primitive root word halal which has various meanings, one of which is shine. The Bible definitely symbolises angels as ‘stars’ in various places (Job 38/7; Rev 1/20, 12/4). Lucifer means light-bearer from the Latin lucem ferre – this was the name given to the planet Venus in its appearance as the morning star. It is unsurprising that Satan’s symbol should be a star since Lucifer is considered to have been an archangel ‘star’ of the highest order prior to his fall.
Saturn's North Pole - Myserious Six Sided Polygon
THE CULT OF SATURN
Rephan (also spelled Remphan and Rophan) is another name for Molech or Baal; it is also a name for Chiun, the planet Saturn (Amos 5/26). There are a lot of sixes associated with Saturn; in Latin it is Saturnus, the Roman God of the Harvest where we get the sixth day - Saturday – Satur(n)-day. Rome was once known as Saturnalia which is interesting since it is widely speculated that this is where the false prophet/second beast of Revelation will arise. Saturn is the sixth planet in our solar system with the unexplained six sided polygon at its north pole. In Chaldee it is STUR: S = 060 T = 400 U = 006 R = 200: = 666. Nimrod, the first Antichrist was deified as Saturn. Kronos (another name for Nimrod) is another name for Saturn. Molech was the Canaanite version of the Egyptian God Set (Satan), the homosexual god of destruction who was worshiped as the god Saturn by the Roman military. Ster, Star, Stur are all short for Saturn or the Egyptian gods Set, Ra or Re. In the Kabbalah Saturn is the horned god (goat). The terms Satur and Saturn are actually camouflaged references to Satan.
WITCHCRAFT AND THE OCCULT
The hexagram is used in witchcraft/Satanism to summon spirits. It is a symbol of man as God as one triangle points upwards and the other points down. As Above So Below is the last statement used in conjunction with the hexagram in Wiccan invocations to facilitate the change of events from the upper world to the lower world.
In the Satanic it combines the male (upward pointing triangle) and the female (downward pointing triangle). They are the symbols for fire and water.
Occultists call the six-pointed star ‘the talisman of Saturn’ and also ‘the Seal of Solomon’.
Former witch and occultist David J Meyer (now a Christian) says “When the male triangle penetrates the female triangle it produces the six-pointed crest of Solomon or hexagram, the most wicked symbol in witchcraft.” (ltmstudios.org)
The hexagram is the most vile Satanic symbol imaginable, it is the root word for ‘hex’ i.e. a magic spell, usually with malevolent intent such as a curse. It is seen by occultists as the most powerful ritual symbol used in witchcraft and Satanism.
Madam Blavatsky, who was a self-proclaimed Luciferian and the ‘mother’ of the New Age Movement, incorporated the hexagram in the emblem of the Theosophical Society.
"The hexagram is widely associated with the occult, and is considered the most powerful of Satan's symbols, containing ‘666’. Occultists also call it the trud and use it in necromantic ceremonies to summon evil spirits." ("The Secrets of the Freemasons" page 45, Bradley)
Hitler who was deeply involved in theosophy and was an occult adept could not have been ignorant about this symbol. The word holocaust means ‘burnt offering’. Hitler literally put the curse symbol of the hexagram on the Jews who became a burnt offering to Lucifer.
Aleister Crowley (reportedly the most evil man in the world who called himself ‘The Beast’) adapted the hexagram to create the unicursal hexagram, the main symbol of the Thelema mystical cosmology. He used this symbol in his ‘Ritual of the Beast’.
David Koresh (Branch Davidians) wore a hexagram ring as the ‘messiah’ of his group – the hexagram was the symbol for his cult religion.
There are many more examples of the use of the hexagram in the occult, the list is endless.
THE ROTHSCHILD’S, THE ZIONISTS AND THE FREEMASONS
The hexagram was appropriated by Baron Edmond de Rothschild as a symbol of Judaism in the 17th century. The Rothschild dynasty began in 1743 with Amschel Bauer, an Ashkenazi Jew born in Germany who changed his name to Rothschild (Red Shield) and used the hexagram red shield as his insignia. This same red shield represents the cartel of global baking elites which is dominated by the House of Rothschild.
The Rothschild’s own 80% of Israel and are the major power behind Zionism and the Freemasons together with the other twelve so called ‘Illuminati’ families, all of which are generational Luciferians. These thirteen bloodlines are: Astor, Bundy, Collins, Dupont, Freeman, Kennedy, Li, Onassis, Rockefeller, Rothschild, Reynolds, Krupp, Russell and the Merovingian bloodline. These thirteen bloodlines literally form a Luciferian coven that dominates economic and political affairs in the western world.
The Seal of Solomon is the symbol of Solomon’s apostasy and this is why it and many symbols of the apostate Solomon can be found at Luciferian Masonic Temples the world over. The goal of both Zionism and Freemasonry is to rebuild Solomon’s temple. The third Temple when it is rebuilt will become a temple to Lucifer/Satan in the ultimate attempt to achieve everything that Satan really wants – that is, to be God.

The Synagogue of Satan
According to Jesus Christ, the identity of a true Jew does not depend upon genealogy:
I know the slander on the part of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. (Revelation 2/9)
I will make those of the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews and are not, but are lying—I will make them come and bow down before your feet, and they will learn that I have loved you. (Revelation 3/9)
The Pharisees said that they were descendants of Abraham, a fact which Jesus acknowledged. However Jesus dramatically changed the definition of what was understood as being Jewish and ostracized those generational ‘Jews’ who rejected his word: …..there is no place in you for my word (John 8/37b). ….. you cannot accept my word (John 8/43). Jesus Christ is the Logos (the word) therefore to reject his word is to reject Him. The critical deciding factor for every person whether Jew or Gentile is how they respond to Jesus Christ the Logos.
“If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples” (John 8/31); “Very truly, I tell you, whoever keeps my word will never see death." John 8/51); “Whoever keeps my word will never taste death.” (John 8/2b)
As far as Jesus Christ was concerned the Pharisees were children of the devil:
You are from your father the devil, and you choose to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8/44)
The apostle Paul reiterates Jesus’ teaching:
For not all Israelites truly belong to Israel (Romans 9/6b).
Rather, a person is a Jew who is one inwardly, and real circumcision is a matter of the heart—it is spiritual and not literal. Such a person receives praise not from others but from God. (Romans 2/29)
The very thing that Jesus condemned the Pharisees for was their traditions:
You abandon the commandment of God and hold to human tradition." Then he said to them, "You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God in order to keep your tradition!For Moses said, "Honour your father and your mother'; and, "Whoever speaks evil of father or mother must surely die.'But you say that if anyone tells father or mother, "Whatever support you might have had from me is Corban' (that is, an offering to God)—then you no longer permit doing anything for a father or mother,thus making void the word of God through your tradition that you have handed on. And you do many things like this."Then he called the crowd again and said to them, "Listen to me, all of you, and understand:there is nothing outside a person that by going in can defile, but the things that come out are what defile."When he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about the parable.He said to them, "Then do you also fail to understand? Do you not see that whatever goes into a person from outside cannot defile. (Mark 7/8-18) The Pharisees believed in the rabbinic liberal interpretations as well as the Torah and they controlled the decision making of the Sanhedrin. The Sanhedrin were of course responsible for the false trials that resulted in the crucifixion of Jesus Christ (John 18/12-14; 19/23; Matthew 26/57-68).
Today we have a number of Jewish people who, rather than following the Torah or the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Old Testament), prefer to follow the Talmud, a written record of an oral tradition compiled in 200CE. These Talmudic Jews are representative of Zionism. The hexagram has powerful Kabbalistic occult meaning, and in the 19th century the Zionist movement adopted the symbol.The stated goal of the Zionist movement is the return of Jews to Eretz Yisrael, or Zion (Jerusalem and the land of Israel). Zionism is not a synonym for all the Jewish people however. A little known fact is that not all Jews support the Zionist movement and similarly not all Zionists are Jews (see: jewsagainstzionism.com). The Zionist movement is a broad ranging political movement including many non-Jews as well as Talmudic Jews. It is this mix of very powerful people who are shaping the future of Israel, and in fact the whole world.
The Temple Institute was founded in 1987 by Zionist Jews; its stated aim is that it is dedicated to building the third Temple on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem. Many utensils and implements including lamps, sacred vessels and garments have been made in anticipation of their future use in the third Temple. The Sanhedrin, a council of seventy one sages, was re-established in October 2005. Is it a coincidence that the most deadly enemies of Jesus Christ, The Sanhedrin, who follow the traditions of the Satanic Babylonian Talmud have re-emerged in our time?
Geometry of the Hexagram
The hexagram comprises of two equilateral triangles (pyramids) one inverted over the other. There are various ways you can get 666 from the hexagram which has a six within a six within a six (i.e. 6 points, 6 triangles, 6 sides of the inner hexagon).
Satan’s aim is the amalgamation of all the world religions. We can see the momentum gathering now with the growing Interfaith Movement involving the Vatican and also the New Age Movement. Whilst nothing can be said with absolute certainty, it would not be surprising if Satan chose the universally accepted symbol of the hexagram as his mark. Logically there is no religion or philosophy that would object to it.
The Bible says that the mark of the beast will be an indelible mark in or on the right hand or forehead. Many people will willingly take the mark because they will be convinced that the ‘beast’ is the Messiah. He will fulfil all the expectations of the 12th Mahdi, Maitreya, Buddha, Krishna etc. To those Jews who have rejected Jesus Christ he will appear to be their Messiah. This will be due to the ‘great signs’ that the false prophet will perform and also the false peace that the Antichrist will bring (Revelation 13/6; 20/4). Later there will be pressure to take the mark as people will not be able to ‘buy or sell’ without it, and finally those who refuse to take the mark will be beheaded (Revelation 20/4). The mark of the beast could easily be a tattoo and/or an RFID chip. The Greek Χάραγμα - charagma (Strong’s number 5840) means a stamp impress, from the word charasso - to sharpen or engrave. To take a tattoo is to take a curse mark on your body. The mark of the beast will be the greatest curse mark that anyone could possibly take. The pagan practice of marking or tattooing the body is forbidden by the Lord (Leviticus 19/28).
It performs great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of all;and by the signs that it is allowed to perform on behalf of the beast, it deceives the inhabitants of earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that had been wounded by the sword and yet lived;and it was allowed to give breathto the image of the beast so that the image of the beast could even speak and cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead,so that no one can buy or sell who does not have the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.This calls for wisdom: let anyone with understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a person. Its number is six hundred sixty-six. (Revelation 13/13-18)
There are two elements involved in sealing the fate of damned individuals. The first is to worship the beast and its image, and the second is to receive the mark of the beast. This may indicate a progressive element in being deceived to such an extent as to actually worship the beast and then to take his mark.
Then another angel, a third, followed them, crying with a loud voice, "Those who worship the beast and its image, and receive a mark on their foreheads or on their hands,they will also drink the wine of God's wrath, poured unmixed into the cup of his anger, and they will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image and for anyone who receives the mark of its name." (Revelation 14/9-11)
The mark of the beast is an abomination to the Lord and once received it cannot be reversed. The deception will be on ‘religious’ grounds with lying signs and wonders and great deception.
Like a roaring lion your adversary the devil prowls around, looking for someone to devour. (1 Peter 5/8)
Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. (Isaiah 45/22)
The coming of the lawless one is apparent in the working of Satan, who uses all power, signs, lying wonders,and every kind of wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion, leading them to believe what is false,so that all who have not believed the truth but took pleasure in unrighteousness will be condemned. (2 Thessalonians 2/9-12)
Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God,and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near;repent, and believe in the good news." (Mark 1/14-15)
