    Lateinos – 666

    The Bible teaches the following:

    18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of
    the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666 (Revelation

    The first writing that have been found that suggests that a Roman is 666
    was by Irenaeus, who claimed to have listened to Polycarp when he
    (Irenaeus) was a young man. Irenaeus wrote:

    Then also Lateinos (LATEINOS) has the number six hundred and sixty-six; and
    it is a very probable [solution], this being the name of the last kingdom
    [of the four seen by Daniel] (Irenaeus. Adversus haereses, Book V, Chapter
    30, Verse 3. Excerpted from Ante-Nicene Fathers, Volume 1. Edited by
    Alexander Roberts & James Donaldson. American Edition, 1885. Online Edition
    Copyright © 2004 by K. Knight).

    The late LCG evangelist John Ogwyn wrote this about its meaning and origins:

    Scarcely any prophetic subject has elicited more conjecture and speculation
    than the “mark of the Beast.” In addition to a “mark,” Revelation 13 also
    mentions an “image” of the Beast as well as the mysterious “number of his

    Since the Roman Empire is the Beast described by John in Revelation 13 and
    Revelation 17, the “mark” is a brand or mark of the Roman Empire. The
    “image” of the Beast must be something modeled or patterned after the Roman

    Before going further, notice that Revelation 13 mentions a second “beast”
    with an earthly, not heavenly, origin (v. 11). It outwardly masquerades as
    Christian, seeking to be identified with Christ, the Lamb of God (cf. John
    1:29) but receives its power from the devil, that old dragon (Revelation
    12:9). In prophecy, horns are used to represent rulership or authority, and
    this creature is pictured with two horns. Revelation 13:12 reveals that
    this second beast insists that all give their allegiance and loyalty to the
    Holy Roman Empire, the beast whose deadly wound was healed (v. 12). This
    second beast is described as performing great miracles, which will deceive
    humanity (vv. 13–14). In Matthew 24:24, Christ prophesied of “false
    Christs” who will deceive all but the very elect…

    The earliest proposed solution to the meaning of 666 is a tradition
    attributed to Polycarp, the disciple of the same Apostle John who wrote
    Revelation. This tradition is preserved in the second century writings of
    Irenaeus. The number 666 is “…contained in the Greek letters of Lateinos
    (L=30; A=1; T=300; E,=5; I=10; N=50; O=70; S=200)” (Commentary on the Whole
    Bible, Jamieson, Fausset and Brown). Lateinos is a Greek term referring to
    the Romans. Interestingly, the Greek expression meaning “the Latin kingdom”
    (h Latine Basileia) also has a numeric value of 666. Greek writers commonly
    referred to the Roman Empire in this way. The book of Revelation was
    originally written in Greek, as it was written to Greek-speaking churches
    in ancient Asia Minor…

    The founder of ancient Rome was Romulus, from whose name Rome and Roman are
    derived. The Latin name Romvlvs is written in Hebrew as Romiith. In the
    Hebrew language this also adds up to 666 (resh=200, vau=6, mem=40, yod=10,
    yod=10, tau=400). Thus, in both Greek and Hebrew, the two languages of the
    Bible, the number 666 is stamped upon the kingdom that derived from Rome
    (Ogwyn J. The Beast of Revelation: Myth, Metaphor or Soon-Coming Reality?).

    Hence, LCG teaches that 666 represents a civil Roman leader/kingdom
    (scripturally referred to as “the beast”) who will maintain a religious
    alliance and that is that 666 represents those that follow forms of false
    Christianity–but also symbolizes the beast–the final leader of the Holy
    Roman Empire who will be ultimately influenced by a changed one in the
    Vatican (by way of a demon-influenced individual who the Bible calls the
    false prophet, Revelation 16:13, and who is probably an “antipope” in the
    sense that even Roman Catholics would consider a demon-influenced pontiff
    an antipope).

    Specifically 666 is the number of the first beast in Revelation 13 as
    distinguished from the Antichrist, who is the second, the two-horned beast,
    in the same chapter. And as Revelation 13 shows, the two-horned beast works
    with, and promotes, the seven-headed (and ten-horned) first beast in that

    Please understand that the leader of the ten-horned Beast of Revelation
    13:1-10 (see Europa, the Beast, and the Book of Revelation) and the one
    called 666 in Revelation 13:10 is also the one who is the final King of the
    North. (More information on who he may be can be found in the detailed
    article Might German Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg become the King of
    the North?)

    Perhaps I should add emphasize that the two-horned beast (also known as the
    false prophet or the final Antichrist) is mainly a religious, not a
    military leader. This differs from the ten-horned beast who the Bible
    confirms is mainly a military and political leader (even though he
    practices a false religion), hence the first beast is not the papacy (as
    Ellen White’s writings tend to state).

    My experience with the Greek and Eastern Orthodox is that they have a
    variety of opinions and are not as uniform as many outsiders think that
    they are. And while I do not believe that the currently proposed i.d. cards
    are 666, it appears that those in Europe are being prepared (through the
    new European Union that formed on December 1, 2009) to accept the Beast
    leader, and hence 666, in due time.

    But ultimately, Jesus will come to establish His kingdom and 666 will be no

    The pope only shook hands with John Kerry. Because he knows that he is a
    good man than the rest of the republican traitors and bibi’s war mongering
    conservative sympathizers.

  12. Mike Murphy says:

    Sad truth is many believe he is Holy and infallible. He is an anti-messiah.
    To attain a personal relationship with Jesus through the application of
    Catholic dogma is an impossibility. They place themselves in the place of
    the Messiah. It’s obvious the masses are not reading the WORD, because if
    they were this would not be.

  13. Matthew Winke says:

    Is the Vatican and pope the most hypocritical thing to ever exist? Richest
    entity in the world yet they do nothing with the money to help the greater
    good. Instead, they horde it and dictate to everyone else how to act. Begs
    the question – without all that money, do they hold any moral authority at
    all? The power of the Pope comes from Jesus Christ, not from his limited
    intellect. Calling Illegal immigrants ‘pilgrims’? Come on, does he even
    know whats going on?

  15. MegaDoug4 says:

    “his holiness”? How do ya figure? I thought Jesus said “all have fallen
    short of the glory of God”, “there are none righteous, not even one” “Why
    do you call me good? There is only one who is good”.

  16. Matthew PolioNine says:

    He’s wasting his time. Most of the country is Christian, and the Catholics
    I know don’t give two shits about him. The only ones who care are hippies
    and low life atheists.

  17. Gary Richards says:

    This man walks the walk. He love the poor, despise wealth, he washes the
    feet of prisoners, eats lunch with the homeless, take a bus to work
    everyday, lives in a one room apartment. Again, this man walks the walk.
    Forget about Religon, this man is doing exactly what Christ commanded us to
    do. I am not talking about the Catholic Church, my comments are about this
