This prophecy yields truth about our future. With its elements properly identified, and aligned with history and unfolding events, brings us ever closer to seeing the last day events. By knowing this prophecy, we will know what is transpiring, and what our response should be.
Page 138 Chapter 11
As I began this research, I noted the extreme accuracy in the way prophecy is written, and how accurate it is when it is fulfilled. I experienced a sense of "present truth" and an unfolding of new light, and it became my duty to make it known.
Hundreds of people daily are seeing this message, and are aware that it is true.
With this small collection of witnesses, it becomes apparent that what they have seen, has moved them to respond in each their own words that are unanimous in realizing the gravity of this message. That which came upon the horizon of time, had been developing for nearly 1900 years, and while in plain sight for the past 27 years, no one could see it until it was pointed out to them by one individual, who, known to have danced to a different drummer, saw what had developed, and began to tell the world.
While all the modern technology we have today, has not contributed much to this research, it has afforded the
opportunity to rapidly communicate what I have found, to a world-wide audience, that is becoming larger by several hundreds of people every day. But even while it is gaining rapid acceptance by a few, the majority of the world still reveal that they would rather continue to believe in the things that they feel comfortable with, and no matter how much you show them that what they believe in is in error, they persist in keeping their beliefs.
I am certain that each one of these eighteen witnesses, having seen this research for what it is, that they could replicate it from the Scriptures and history, if they had never heard of this again. As with any scientific theory, this one, can be readily replicated and is verifiable by anyone. Arguments have been made against this research, but not one has yet prevailed to show where it is in error. Truth is truth, and it is not an opinion of what one or another has said. To give a different interpretation does not prove the error of another, you must enter that arena of that interpretive paradigm, and demonstrate its internal errors (if there are any). Since there have been no internal errors in the interpretation in this book, none have ever attempted to show any error.
It is with a deep sense of trepidation that I had experienced many years ago that what I had found was not something that added just one more interpretation of the number 666, but that this was THE interpretation that the prophecy intended it to have. Realizing that it WAS real, and I could not find anything that could show it to be in error, I knew that what I held, locked in my mind, was exactly what the world needed to know. There was no one other than myself that knew, at that initial point in time in early 1997, what lay just on the horizon. How soon it was to transpire, I did not know. But upon every step forward, I saw more and more of the elements
Everything You Need To Know About the Number 666
of prophecy come together. Some of them I had known about for thirty years. Little did I know then that I would be playing
such an integral and vital role in participating in their fulfillment. With the daunting task of disseminating that which I knew, I continued in search of the best means of making this information known to as many as possible, by the least costly methods. This aspect, however formidable under the circumstances I was in, was dwarfed by yet a more formidable task of making such a construct of words so as to convey the severe gravity of the message that has emanated out of the results of this research, that would transcend the barrier of lies woven by Satan, that already possess the minds of most believers. Truly the world churches of this time are Laodicean. That which they already believe, in regard to this subject prevents them from receiving the truth.
Throughout these years of my involvement, I have ever wondered; "Why me God?" I must accept by faith that God knows whom He has chosen. Every journey begins with the first step, and at this time, those first steps are becoming farther and farther distant into the past. I have employed whatever skills I had gained, and continue to learn new skills, all of which are aimed at bringing this new light to the world.
There have ever been the "people of God" and as the Bible states; Come out of her My people (Revelation 18:4) indicates that the people of God are both in and out of Babylon. No church; Catholic, Seventh-day Adventist, Methodist, Mormon, Baptist, Anglican, Presbyterian, etc., hold the monopoly on having the "people of God," for God Himself says that He has some of His people, even in Babylon, destined to receive His wrath, and that the wheat and tares will grow together until the harvest. God knows who they are; and he that thinks that he stands needs to take heed, lest he fall.
Do not let this prophecy lead you into a false sense of security, for this marks only one identifying landmark on the path of an unfolding Revelation; there are yet many more things to discover after passing this point. Just as it is shown that there
are over 26 specific elements of the prophecy that align with history; this cluster of 26 elements form only one part of a much greater picture, there remains more parts before us that are revealed only when we arrive there. The passing of time never stops. The end is almost here. The roadmap upon which you will use to travel from this point onward, must then depend upon the revelation from God and His Word. We are now most certainly, nearer than when we
first believed. I remain determined to lead yet many others to the understanding that this interpretation of the number 666 has its proper place among the foundational truths that have built the remnant church.
At such time in the very near future, and perhaps as you read this, may already be upon us, when those who have heard these things and know them to be the truth for this time, will advance forward and join in a worldwide loud cry that announces the imminent coming judgments from God upon a wicked world. It behooves everyone who claims to believe in God, to pursue a serious course of self-examination to assure their good standing with God, that they may receive a "good writ" in the day of judgment. In my parting words to my readers; beware of the wiles and deceptions of the devil. For every truth, the devil has a lie designed to bring in corruption, and mingles his error into it. The path of error often lays right next to the truth. Test everything by the written Word of God. May God bless you on your journey into His new eternal kingdom.

I am very interested in your research and I think it is fascinating stuff! I have heard a lot about the end times and how the Catholic Church fits in with it. However, after reading the information on your page in detail, I now am convinced beyond any shadow of doubt that it is true. I am a born again Christian and the Lord graciously saved me. I would like to say thank you for portraying this info for people to have their eyes enlightened!
I must say, that is a good interpretation. I am just one that is waiting to see what happens next. When you see the abomination that makes desolate standing in the holy place
know that the end is near. I never really thought of the Catholic Church or pope as being that involved in the end times. I heard it proposed while in a Bible study back in 1987. Although the way that you counted the popes was not taken into consideration at that time. I am intrigued by this.
I am a Christian since five years ago. I have read about this Revelation and have shared it with other church members. It is very interesting to know this with its details and

Everything You Need To Know About the Number 666
I am a Catholic and I found your site today and couldn't stop reading.amazing.
I think your study on the beast of Revelation 13 & 17 is super-packed with harmonious truth. Even before I read your study, I was convicted by my own studying that those seven heads had to be papal heads and not descriptive of seven unrelated world empires. Actually, the Bible only notes FOUR from Daniel's day. I applaud your willingness to stand outside of the box of tradition.
Page 144 April 14, 2005
Interesting theory. I can tell a lot of thought went into it. Rastafarians and certain sects in Ethiopia think the Pope is Satan as well. I'm Catholic, but this stuff doesn't bother me all that much. I don't claim to be knowledgeable enough to quote Scripture and verse, but doesn't the Bible say that in regards to the end of time, no man shall know? I tell you what, with the passing of the Pope and the naming of a successor coming shortly, if the name chain is broken, I'll start taking your theory seriously. For many years, I have had a feeling deep inside that I may possibly live long enough to see the beginning of the end. I am 52 and hope so. Thank you for putting up this website. It is definitely food for thought.
April 19, 2005
I have had your website bookmarked for years, and read it often. I found the logic of your arguments to be well grounded and thought out. Could you please respond or update your website as to whether the logic of your arguments is flawed or if a Pope was counted who perhaps should not have been included or was in fact an antipope, and thus adding 16 to the count comes up to 666. Another possibility is Benedict XVI will be an antipope and the next Pope will add 1 to the count and be 666. I would appreciate your input and insight as I am sure millions of other readers would.
Page 145 May 9, 2005
Thank you for your e-mail regarding your recent update. I appreciate you keeping everybody up to date on things. So John Paul II was the last legitimate pope ever and Benedict XVI is an antipope filling in until Satan arrives on the scene to occupy the throne of the world. I'm assuming that the reason we now have an antipope is that God's people are not ready, as per usual, and we were given more time, as per usual. Benedict will probably feel very "honoured" to hand things over to Satan, how creepy. I find it interesting that the pure woman is
supported solely by God, and God's true church goes directly to Him with no earthly mediator and has one eternal and unchanging Head who is Christ. The false church has numerous heads who take their direction from the dragon directing from behind the scenes, and God is nowhere in the picture. The 7 heads cannot be literal mountains because, as we speak head to head or face to face with someone, so the dragon speaks to the heads (control centres) of the beast to give it direction, and we do not speak to physical mountains. People who think the Roman Catholic Church is even semi-Christian have only to look to Revelation 13 & 17 to see which "god" is really guiding this organization: it is the Devil and the Devil only, it's his masterpiece. Everything it has comes from the "dragon."
I have not found any explanation of Revelation 17 that makes sense except for your interpretation. It is the only explanation that pinpoints exactly which man the number 666 refers to. So while the rest of the world will think that this beautiful being seated in the Vatican is Christ, we will know that it is actually the Antichrist, thanks to the count (and pray that we
will not be overwhelmed by it all). I find it hard to believe that your research is 9 years old and I had heard absolutely nothing at all about it until I stumbled upon it while searching on the Internet (or I should say that the Lord made sure I found it).
The book of Revelation has taken on a new meaning for me as I read and study it and other parts of the Bible. Yes, the end of all things is definitely upon us. This is getting more and more fascinating.

This is the reason why I started to realise some 7 or 8 years ago that the Beast "is not" when The Catholic Church lost their grip in 1798. The Harlot could not sit on the seven heads, when she earlier sat on the Beast, unless the Beast was unable to support the Harlot. No political system since 1798 has guaranteed the existence of the Catholic Church. Only the popes themselves have had the strategic cunningness after 1798 to uphold the Church. I also saw and understood that John was taken in vision from Patmos to a time where the Beast "is not." I tried to convince the pastors in Norway about this.
I am very grateful to you for your clarification. I believe you have been personally blessed with an insight into the Scripture. The clarification and distinction between the Dragon and the Beast is very helpful, and makes very good sense. It is very important and I can see how it was a step in your understanding of Revelation 17 and its association with the number 666. It is a
Everything You Need To Know About the Number 666
pure blessing. I have tried to share it with many. March 2004
I found your article "count the popes in history" and chapter 1, 2, etc. quite remarkable. And I found it very easy to read and I must say that you have quite a gift. I have been studying the Bible Prophecies in depth for over eight years and your article is one of the best and thought provoking I have read for quite some time. I thank you for your fine presentation of this issue and will continue to investigate your views. It should be very exciting if you are correct, as Jesus will be coming soon and we shall be home before we know it!
I've been studying this subject for a few years too. The FACT is this Papal explanation makes the most sense I've seen in a long time.
I just read your website on the papacy and the Antichrist. Everything I have always believed staring me in the face!! What a great website! I was wondering what your view is now that the current pope is on his death bed. Any ideas if the next one will be "the One" or if it will be an antipope? Thank you for a great site!
My brother, I write to strengthen you at this time as you may be facing unwarranted attacks from many who may not understand your research. I have been closely following your exposition of Revelation 17 and 13 and note with interest the findings from your study. Signs abound that Benedict XVI may be an antipope: 1. Why are the 115 cardinals who supposedly elected him not that supportive and upbeat about his appointment? 2. Why do they seem surprised at his appointment? Remember it was Benedict X's unpopularity that brought him down. Could it be that this was a mystic appointment and not by election? Read pope John Paul II's advice to cardinals in view of the conclave on strict instructions on election of the next pope. Many rubbished William Miller's interpretation on the second coming of Christ without carefully following the light he had received.
I believe in the imminent coming of Christ and I am impressed by your study. Never get discouraged, but rather hold fast and pray more. The day will come as a thief to those who
are not solidly grounded on Scripture, or established on Christ nor rooted in the Word. May the Lord continue to lead you and may His light shine on your study desk as you continue to
Everything You Need To Know About the Number 666
search these vital truths.
Where do we go from there if he finishes his time in office with out being deposed? Call it a close call? I am asking because I want all to come to Christ and I really believe the Catholic Church is leading good intentioned people away from Him. I am not saying that there aren't a few Catholics out there who "get it" and are truly saved but most are sheep being led to the slaughter.
I have studied your research work for some time and I find that it is the best explanation to this last days scenario. I am not about to conclude that your work is no longer valid. I would hope you will continue to investigate the possibility that Ratzinger has in some way deceived the world.
I found your site about 8 months ago, and after all of my studies I came to the conclusion that John Paul II would die this year before March was over (a few days short). I also find it interesting that your findings match perfectly with St. Malachy's. If the 112th Pope of his prophecy was added for
true prophetic reasons, then the next Pope, I would conclude, would have the new name making the count 666. This Pope would be known as Peter the Roman, and during his reign Rome would be destroyed. I am sure you are familiar with St. Malachy. Anyways, I just wanted to say thanks for all your research and for responding so quickly.
For the past week or so I have been reading and studying with keen interest and fascination the information (on the 666 count), etc, being totally captivated by it. A wave came over me as I read your information, and I must say that I felt in my heart that this was the correct interpretation of the heads of the beast. If not, it certainly is a gigantic leap in the right direction. Thank you for posting this information. It certainly is something to ponder and pray about.
After a bit of a disappointment yesterday, I am reviving. I have been thinking about and with you these last few hours. I wanted to thank you for your outstanding study in Revelation. The work still stands. It has certainly brought our attention to this point in time. I think that is very appropriate and necessary. We may yet see an even more beautiful application of the meaning of the number 666 as the mystery is further revealed and finally finished. May God continue to bless you and yours.
I continue to view your site from time to time. Having read your material thoroughly I recognized the possibility there could be a temporary "hiccup in the prophetic flow." I imagine this has drawn
http://www.666beast.net/ (95 of 105) [10/28/2007 14:09:04]
the scorn of many. From your recently updated prologue. I see this is true. Know that I respect you for standing up and saying what you believe (I'll bet I'm not alone). Your interpretations of the Scriptures are certainly inspired and they may still prove to be correct. Your work has merit and it should be studied.
Hey, thanks for your note. That's certainly a new take on the pope-prophecy stuff, but it has a certain elegance to it, I think. I'll have to spend some more time looking around your site. Thanks for the recommendation.
Like you, I have been watching the emerging leader of the papacy with growing interest. Interest because Ratzinger decided on a name already chosen, namely Benedict XVI. I feel so compelled by the simplicity and perfect alignment of Revelation prophecy with the papacy's history that the only answer is that Joseph Ratzinger must be an antipope. I'm curious as to what your thoughts on the matter are. What an interesting turn of events. Thanks. I love the updates.
This event might turn out to be very interesting; Seeing that Ratzinger has been elevated so high among the cardinals while he was still a cardinal, that when he is taken down, it will be while he is still alive. I suppose the bigger they are, the harder that they fall. I think that his hardline stance on the Catholic beliefs, is a smokescreen for something deceptive. up his sleeve.
I am really excited about the chiastic structures and the truth that points one way and then the other to pinpoint deeper truths below the surface script. God Bless you. I want to get ready to leave this old world and I long for Jesus to come and take us home.
Church up to now on this subject has been the standard "Vicarius Filii Dei," which quite frankly had never settled the matter for me, being too general to pinpoint the actual person (and unprovable as to it being an actual papal title). Thank you for posting this information. It certainly is something to ponder and pray about.
I just wanted to say that I support your research and I will continue to watch and see what happens. I really think you
are on to something and this makes sense. I trust God with all of this. God Bless!
I recently ran into your site somehow, and WOW! Quite an interesting study you've done! My compliments! Last night when the news reported that some chap had obtained the domain
http://www.666beast.net/ (96 of 105) [10/28/2007 14:09:04]
name of Benedict XVI, I had to laugh, thinking that he must have read your material. I agree with your idea in the update about this being a short rule with a possible antipope event.
I think you see how the future will play out because no other explanation I have come across other than yours matches Scripture exactly. Your theory is correct, it's just a matter of understanding how Benedict XVI will be determined to be an antipope.
Thanks for writing back! All I can say is "WOW" to everything I just learned today. I've never even heard of your teachings before, and yet it made complete and total sense from the moment I started reading it. I'm in 'awe' at the fact that we're living to see the "end of days" unfold right in front of us! I'm going to stay-tuned to see what happens with Benedict XVI, as I believe he will be deposed in the very near future.
Your interpretations make so much more sense than traditional interpretations, especially the view that the numbers of the pope's name make up the number of the beast. It is nearly 3 AM, and I am still reading! Why have I never heard this interpretation before? Very exciting! We really are in the last days! Thank you.
Your hard work is evident and everything is backed up by either Scripture or other previously published works. Elder Donovan Oswald, the father-in-law to Dwight
Nelson, corresponded with us for years. Before he died he gave me the text Rev. 17:10-12, and told me to keep a watch on those verses and it would become clear. He did not know the meaning, but he knew that someone would be given the light to interpret. I firmly believe that you have been given that light. Your study is grammatically correct which gives it more acceptability with the brethren and others. You give historical accounts and credits. This is the first thing that scholars will look at when critiquing your study. I am almost through the little booklet!
I cannot put it down and read and reread each passage for a clear understanding. You have meticulously researched each passage and seemingly have come to a most correct understanding. I feel in my heart that what you have written is God's unvarnished truth!!
This book is not a book of hate. It is a book that exposes the errors that are taught by many faiths. The people of God of all faiths today are of the church of Laodicea. All people have been blinded by their own Denominational false teachings. They all share this one common belief: They all believe that their church has the best interpretation on all teachings and that they are not wrong.
All faiths are in a Laodicean condition, and are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked. The Bible is true that states; Romans 3:4 "Let God be true, but every man a liar."
The predicted end time events are about to break upon an unsuspecting world. Yet all of the signs point to something huge is pending. The earth itself reels to and fro like a drunkard as all can attest to after the great Tsunami of December 26, 2004. The foundation of the earth is breaking up, as well as the foundations of many faiths that are built upon the doctrines of men. Yet there will remain upon the earth when He comes, a people whom He calls His own.
Jeremiah 31:35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name: 36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.
The foundation of God's Word, is as fixed as His own creation, and His doctrines are built upon the very foundations of the Earth, Sun, Moon and the Stars. So long as these of God's Creation remain, so also will the seventh day Sabbath that He made for us.
The year 2005 has its place in the prophetic chart of events; The death of pope John Paul II, marks the end of the "short space" of Revelation 17:10. The next element of prophecy to be fulfilled is the coming of the "eighth," that "yet is" beast
that rises from the bottomless pit, and he will begin to wage his war against the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11:3-7. When this happens, the remaining elements of all eschatological prophecy that is yet future, will begin to be fulfilled rapidly. The last effort of the work of the Everlasting Gospel will be made. Join now in the Mystery of the Gospel, that every one present in the world is invited to join the people of God, and be separated from the world that is soon to end in destruction.
Let the final Message from God to a dying world now be proclaimed; "Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name." Rev. 14:7-10
THE TESTIMONY OF HISTORY, AND THE TESTIMONY OF THE PROPHECY
History provides the testimony of fulfilled prophecy. The beast of Revelation 13 has seven heads and ten horns, and up to Revelation 13:10, it speaks of the beast during its 1,260 years of its dominion. In verse 10, as the beast receives its head wound, it leaves off at 1798. Then introduces another beast and details these events from their inception to the end, and it ends with the number 666. The link left us in the Bible is "Wisdom." To
follow this chiastic link draws us to the verse: Revelation 17:9. At that verse, "Wisdom" points to the seven heads of the beast. The papacy is the beast, and its heads are papal.
The tenth verse in Revelation 13, leaves us off at 1798, and that is where we also see marking the wounding of one of the heads. Pius VI is one of the heads of the papal beast.
Revelation 17:9 then goes on to say that the heads are mountains. History shows that there were 12 popes named Pius, and 6 of them had been popes after 1798. This wounded head (Pius VI, 1798) would also be healed (Pius XI, 1929). Pius shows what one of the heads looks like and was one that was wounded, and healed, and what a mountain appears like, and where numbers are found.
Every pope shows us a number. Reflecting back to Revelation 13:18, there are numbers that are counted, that produces the sum of 666. The count of all seven of the mountains, and the final "eighth" produces the sum total of 666.
"Although Catholic tradition, regards St. Peter as the first Bishop of Rome and therefore as the first pope, there is no evidence that Peter was involved in the initial establishment of the Christian community in Rome, or that he served as Rome's first bishop. Not until the pontificate of St. Pius I in the middle of the second century (140-155) did the Roman church have one bishop as pastoral leader," Richard McBrien, Lives of the Popes, p. 25.
History shows that the seven papal mountains bear out these numbers in the cumulative count of the papal beast's seven heads. The first number in the following list is the number of their pontificate, followed by the name of the pope, and then the years that he served and the last number is the cumulative total carried forward to the present time. Antipopes are inserted into the list at the time they were in office.
