Let’s study Revelation 13:18 : for it is the number of a man.
In the original Greek, it was written “arithmos gar anthropou estin”. This translates to: “for it is the number of mankind” or “for it is a human number”. We can see that “the number” belongs to or is associated with more than just one person. Now let’s look at “and his number is Six hundred threescore and six”. In this case, we only need to see 666 as it was written in the original Greek. What’s interesting is the similarities between the Greek number 666 and symbols of Islam.
Above are photos of Greek symbols translated in the Bible as 666. The gold symbol (bottom and right) is Arabic for “Allah” when turned and mirrored. Additionally, crossed swords are a symbol for Islam. So in 666 we may find symbols for both “Islam” and “Allah”.
Notice the symbol used in the Manuscript Vaticanus. Think of someone writing directions to a city. They might use symbols in between words such as stop signs or yield signs knowing the reader would recognize the symbol. It seems John did this when using the symbol for Allah.
The word beast also needs to be studied very carefully. Beast comes from the Greek word therion and literally means wild animal, beast, wild beasts, or snake. Immediately, Genesis 16:11-12 comes to mind. The Angel of the Lord said to Hagar, “You are with child and shall bear a son, and shall call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard your affliction. And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” When placing the sword of Islam in front of Allah’s name…………….it reads 666 in Greek. It is a very real possibility that Islam is the beast in Revelation 13:18. It was through Ishmael that Muhammed was born. It was Muhammed who wrote the Koran and thus birthed the religion of Islam. The Angel of the Lord said that Ishmael would be a ”wild man” engaged in an ongoing battle. There is no doubt that Islam is an Anti-christ religion that intends, through violence, to conquer the world. This beast, after receiving even more power from Satan during the Great Tribulation, will bring about destruction and death like this world has not yet seen.
Islam is certainly the spirit of Anti-Christ. I think it reasonable that the symbol for Allah would be the acclaimed 666.
