It didn’t surprise me to see the 616 vs. 666 thread moved. Yet to keep in touch with the threads intent and purposes it requires some more of the story. That it implicates the US government primarily and the UN organization as two of the beasts spoken of in Rev. prophecy is true. Washington DC being the seat of the worlds most powerful nation on earth and directed from the White House at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is a remarkable coincidence. What I also find interesting is that nation has also given power and authority over to the UN to police the world for demonocracy. What you may know as democracy, the majority rules, and we know where that has now gotten us. Or some shadow government behind all that may be the reality. What is a reality is that there seems to be a concerted effort to keep the 616 manuscripts hidden, destroyed, slandered, and off the information highways.

A man of wisdom will know.
The name adds up to 666
Try 216 than find a name that is 216 and also 1296 in hebrew.
1296-completion of a cycle.
216 letters to the name of God yet also tied into 666. Why is this?
You really have to ponder this on a deeper level.
The man of wisdom who knows this is himself and why would the Antichrist be a man of wisdom?
This alternative formulation for the Number of the Beast as 616 is very ancient and is attested to by St Irenaeus of Lyon who, writing (in Greek) in the middle of the second century AD, attributed it to scribal error:
Such, then, being the state of the case, and this number being found in all the most approved and ancient copies, 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),
â€”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 decads they will have it that there is but one. Others then received this reading without examination; some in their simplicity, and upon their own responsibility, making use of this number expressing one decad; while some, in their inexperience, have ventured to seek out a name which should contain the erroneous and spurious number.
