777 is the numerical value of σταυρός, "the cross-piece carried by criminals en route to crucifixion, to be connected to the xulon". The cross
we bear; the cross that must be borne. It is a grave condition, being borne into sin: it is a matter of atomic/Adamic creatures in bondage to the
The cross itself is a 2-dimensional representation of a cube (carbon; 666).
It is also 666 as χξς: χ "cross/wound"; ξ xulon/pole,beam; ς "stigma/serpent".
777 also symbolizes the nitrogen atom. Its associated element is fire.
Out of this comes the icon of the burning cross.
Welcome the proverbial test of fire:
"Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree (xulon)". (Gal 3:13)
ἐπικατάρατος πᾶς ὁ κρεμάμενος ἐπὶ ξύλου·
"The axe is already laid at the root of the trees; therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. “As for
me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize
you with the Holy Spirit and fire.“His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat
into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” (Mat 3:10-12)
John the Baptist is our first birth into the world; Jesus Christ is our rebirth from it.
“I have come to set fire to the earth, and I only wish it were already burning.” (Luke 12:49)
"He who overcomes will not be hurt by the second death." (Rev 2:11)
The Anglo-Saxon Futharc character, "Nyd", pronounced, "Need" (and meaning "need") is the sign of the cross: ᚾ
It means "perseverance through hardship", "victory over the world of lack".
As in spiritual alchemy, through purification (fire) we sublimate our carnal selves and return to Spirit.
We sacrifice this world for the next.
Jesus ('a) said: "The love of this world and the next cannot come together in the heart of a believer, like water and fire in a single vessel." (Bihar
al-anwar, xiv, 327)
One of the evils of this world is that the next world is not attained except by abandoning this one. So pass through this world without making it your
home, and know that the root of all wrong is the love of this world. (Bihar al-anwar, xiv, 327)
This is the mystery of the cross.
