It’s that number again

It happened again…

…at my favorite coffee place (which is in downtown Jackson). 

I am at Coffee Choices most days and every once in a while (like today) I have lunch there.  And on more than one occasion, when I have gone to Coffee Choices, the total that appears on the cash register is $6.66…"scary".  The owners, when they see that, always give me a wry laugh and immediately take one cent off my total.

[Mental note:  A turkey wrap and travel mug of coffee is "evil" :)]

O.K…maybe nothing bad has ever happened by me receiving "that number" time and again, but at least I save myself one cent every now and then.  So that means after another few hundred more cases of being "cursed" with the mark of the beast I will have saved up enough money for a free coffee.  What a deal 🙂

  1. Ah don’t worry about it. We’ve had that in our phone number for 30 years with no problems, ditto for the whole telephone exchange.

    There are more important things to worry about: Is the talking snake in the OT lesson for Sunday really Satan? The text never says so, but traditionally we have assumed this is Satan. Have you ever seen a talking snake? Who told the lie, the snake or God? (i.e. “You will die.”) If the Romans passage about original sin is true, then how come animals die even though they apparently don’t sin?

    Guess who just got home from Bible Study? Lutherans live “in the question.” Hooray!

  2. There are many key elements that direct a person to what and who the beast and its mark is. One element is an image is made that people bow down to and worship and another is it has a name. Bio-chips, social security numbers, government brandings, and other concoctions do not fit. If you take the number 666 and write it in the Hebrew numbering system using letters you come up with vstr, or vav samech tav resh. Vav is a prefix while the root str means secret or hidden. If you then look up the symbols of the letters they are nail, prop, cross, and head, and mean nail, prop, mark or sign, and head or leader. If you put these together it is the crucifix, the image of the beast. If you then take the name of the image, jesus, and add it up it comes to 616. The True Messiah warned that if another came in his own name he would be accepted, and he said many will come saying they are him. He gave us the tools to figure out who this deceiver would be and said that he would sit in the temple of God making himself out to be God and that the whole world would be deceived.
