666 - The Mark of the Beast
Do you see the Mark of the Beast on his forehead?
What do these two scriptures have in common?
Both are descriptions during End Times. They both contain the number of Marked lost, 666 or two-thirds of mankind. That is 666 parts out of a 1,000, or 66.6%
But isn’t the number 666 singular, “a man”? No, it is the number of plural “man” or “mankind”. The original Greek "anthropos" is usually translated “men” in the Revelation. Also the Mark as the "name" of the Beast, may be rendered "authority" or "cause".
This leaves one-third of mankind as the Christians and a remnant of Jews. 33.4% is another harbinger of End Times and the return of Jesus. For Jesus said the Great Commission would be completed and then the End would come.
The internet and cell phones have extended the Gospel to almost everyone on earth. Worldwide Christians have leveled off at one-third. The Lord's people have reached the third who will be put in the fire. Acquire the Fire. The End is near.
Did you recognize the Mark of the Beast on the forehead of Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri? The zabiba, زبيبة, or prayer bump. It is a sign of piety among Muslims from pressing their foreheads against the ground while praying five times daily.
Often the right hand is placed over the mouth and nose to prevent inhaling dust, sometimes leading to a mark on the back of the right hand. There may only be a temporary dust Mark on the forehead or right hand of many Muslims, but God can see it.
Why a Mark only on the right hand, and not the left? The right hand is for eating and the left for the toilet. Under Sharia Law the right hand of thieves is cut off so they man not eat with the righteous. An example from the hadith:
So bump your heads in prayer and raise a welt. Let us see you are part of the coming 666.
The Beast is already with us. Don’t listen to the Nicolaitans, who Jesus hates (Revelation 2:6, 2:15).
 Some early manuscripts have the number 616. Perhaps there will be some "undecided" in End Times. They had best decide before the Great White Throne Judgment.
