The Greek spells out each word: ἑξακόσιοι (six hundred) ἑξήκοντα (sixty) ἕξ (six). At the time the NT was written, place holders were unknown. It was simply not possible to write ἕξ ἕξ ἕξ (or to use the single letters for six which would be three stigmas) and it be understood as six hundred sixty-six. To write out 666 using the letter equivalents would ...

I would definitely check out this video. This youtube video is done on a channel that focuses on Math and Numbers, so 666 will be discussed Mathematically. However, the video mostly covers the historical side of the number 666. It goes into the Bible, how languages could have interpreted the number etc. It is very interesting. But if you don't want to watch ...

I'm glad to hear you'll take non-Catholic responses. People tend to think of the lake of fire when they think of hell (or hades). Thing is, the Bible states "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death." (Rev 20:14 KJV) A few verses before that it says, "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and ...

I will take a different approach to the whole idea of hell than the catholic and many protestant directions choose to take and point out these things: Giving the devil his own place to live and torture people to enternity, because he rebelled against God makes little sense. That would be a gift to a creature who left, and started a war to dethrone God. ...

Approaching it from this angle: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. So hell is not part of the original creation. We also know that [Now] war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they were defeated and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. It is ...

Revelations20:4 " And I saw thrones and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them" This was talking about the bride of Christ those that were raptured pre tribulation. They had already been judged ...

You're going to find mixed opinions about what this means, but the most common thing you will find is that this is referring to Christ being destined to die for us since before the creation. We must remember that God is not confined to our perception of time - He is limitless, almighty, all knowing. He knows all things that have been, are, and are to come. ...

We don't know why God will remove the vast sea in the new Earth. We can only speculate why the sea is removed. The sea represents chaos and evil. But the wicked are like the tossing sea, which cannot rest, whose waves cast up mire and mud. (Isaiah 57:20, NIV) The sea represents death. They will bring you down to the pit, and you will die a ...
