Real Meaning of 666 in the Bible
(God’s Timeline of 37’s + Antichrist Revealed)
The ‘number of the beast’ is a riddle from God that wasn’t going to be solved until God was
ready because it required info about Daniel 11, which was ‘sealed until the time of the end’.
The riddle reveals certain information about the antichrist from Daniel 11:36, which is helpful
because the abomination and rapture, from Daniel 11:31, obviously come first, chronologically.
I think it’s more important to watch the signs (or verses) in Daniel 11, but I feel obligated to
share my findings because God was gracious enough to reveal the information.
“This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the
number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666.”

The Mathematical Anomaly of the #37 (read if you like math)
As I pointed out, 3-like-6’s divided by the sum of their digits equals “37”, man’s number.
It didn’t take long (couple days) to realize that all the 3-like-digit numbers, when divided
by their sum, also equaled “37”. Yet, that didn’t dampen my spirit at all. It just means that
God could have used any 3-like-digits to make His riddle equal 37 but He chose 666 because it
obviously had a second meaning, which tied to ancient Babylon’s number system of 6 and 60.
It also points to the antichrist, during end times, because the 6th president of Iran will be
60 in the 37th anniversary of Iran. In other words, the 666 is used to find man’s number (and
the timeline of 37’s) and then they tie together for another meaning, pointing to the antichrist.
Let’s get philosophical
Another way to look at this is to think about the ‘3-like-digits’ as representative of the Father,
Son, & Holy Spirit. In fact, 3-like-digits (in one number) are very representative of the Trinity.
Man’s number (37) can only come by 'separating' and 'dividing', which is what Satan tries to do
to Christians. Yet, Christians can defeat Satan by bonding into One.
Let’s get mathematical
I think I’ve shown that God can make a good riddle (with multiple layers) but He’s also the
Ultimate Mathematician so let’s go deeper into “man’s number” and expose what “37” really is.
[ominous laugh for effect: Ha ha haaa.]
Anyway, an e-mailer noticed the consistency with the ‘3-like-digit numbers’, all equaling 37,
as noted above, but he went the extra mile and checked other ‘like-digit’ numbers, and found that
they also stayed consistent (when the rule was applied) but they equaled different amounts.
For example: 2-like-digits / sum-of-digits = 5.5
4-like-digits / sum of digits = 277.75
5-like-digits / sum-of-digits = 2222.2
Anyway, the e-mailer pointed out that another whole number does not appear until:
9-like-digits / sum-of digits = 12,345,679. (No remainder)
That sparked my interest (8 digits, in order, without the 8) so I had to investigate farther.
I found that the 8 was not significant but there was definitely a ‘pattern within a pattern’.
A ‘pattern within a pattern’ that results in “what?”
My curiosity got the best of me so I did the next in the series, which I figured was 27-like-digits
(factor of 3 higher) and sure enough; it came out to a whole number. (meaning no remainder)
I had to use paper and a calculator to make the long division shorter, which still took 4 steps,
but a definite pattern emerged. (I used 1’s but I’m sure the rule is consistent for all digits.)
Answer: 27-like-digits / sum-of-digits = 411 522 633 744 855 967 078 189 3. (25 digits)
At first glance, it looks like it goes out of rhythm but it really doesn't. It’s an ascending series
of 3-digits but when the 9’s ascend to 10, the 1 gets carried to the previous digit, and becomes 0.
For example: after 855 should have been 966, 10-77, 11-88, and 12-99, but the 10’s got absorbed
in the previous digit. Think about it. The last series of 1-digit, which would have been 299 got
rounded up and shortened to 3, so it would have the required 25-digits, with no remainder.
That’s when I saw the ‘pattern within the pattern’ but I had to go higher, to ‘see what I could see’.
In keeping with the first pattern, I figured the next number to come out as an even whole number
was ‘81-like-digits’ (a factor of 3 higher), which was a big number.
If my hypothesis was correct, it would be an ascending series of 9-digits (factor of 3 higher),
with the 10’s carrying to the previous, like the other answer, with no remainder. This time,
it took two pieces of paper (10 steps) but I had to finish, once I started. The result not only
proved my hypothesis but added an interesting observation, at the beginning and end.
Answer: 81-like-digits / sum-of-digits = 137174211 248285322 359396433 470507544
581618655 692729766 803840877 914951989 0260631 (79-digits, no-remainder)
I actually checked my answer, using the ascending pattern and carrying the 10’s, and it came out
the same, with the last digit in the last series being 099, which got rounded up and shortened to 1.
That’s when I saw a third pattern because there’s always ‘9 series’, with the last series shortened.
The first series will always end with 1’s, ascending to 9’s in the last, but the last set of 9’s gets
rounded up and shortened to make the proper number of digits, with no remainder.
I even started the next number, which would be 243-digits, but I didn’t finish because
the answer would be 240-digits long! However, I did take it out 35-digits with a calculator, to
see the pattern, and then I completed 81-digits, using the ascending rule and carrying the 10’s.
Part answer: 243-like-digits / sum-of-digits = 457247370827617741197988111
568358481938728852309099222 679469593049839963420210333 … (1st 81-digits)
As expected, it’s an ascending series of 27-digits, with 1’s at the end of the first series,
which would result in 999 at the end of the 9th series, which would get rounded up and shortened,
so the answer would have just 240-digits, with no remainder.
So what’s my point?
Since the pattern holds when going “up”, something interesting happens when going back “down”.
In other words, the 81-like-digits (34) resulted in an ascending series of 9-digits (32) [until the
9th series gets shortened of course]. Going on down, the 27-like-digits (33) resulted in an ascending
series of 3-digits (31). Notice how the exponent, in the result, is always ‘2 less’ than the number.
Thus, 9-like-digits (32) resulted in an ascending series of 1-digit (30). Do you see where I’m going?
Big philosophical finish …
By the same rule, when 3-like-digits (31) results in 37, the answer is actually an ascending series
of “1/3-digit” (3-1) [negative exponents go to the denominator], which is really “no digit” at all.
So how can a whole number have just 1/3 or no digits? It’s a mathematical anomaly. And when
you think about it, man’s number having “no digits” is like man bringing “nothing into the world
and taking nothing out”. On the other hand, if I consider “37” as “one-third of a digit”, and multiply
by 3 to make “1-digit” again, then it equals 111. So how can 3-like-1’s be just-1-digit? Like I said
in the beginning, it’s like the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, 3-like-Individuals that are One-in-Spirit.
Plus, God took “37-years” and made a “timeline” (above), with important anniversaries, and
placed ‘one clue’ in Revelation 13 (the 666), so all this could be proven at the appointed time.
Now, that’s an Awesome God, and that’s my point.

I would never have discovered
God’s “Timeline of 37’s” if
I hadn’t already discovered
the real meaning of Daniel 11,
which highlights the Shiites as
the “final empire”, starting in
verse 21, and leading to the
‘abomination’, in verse 31.
Honestly, it’s the only
interpretation of Daniel 11
that makes any sense and
it’s proving itself by continuing
to happen in the Middle East.
Current events (Dan 11:29-30)
Daniel 11: 37-38
Of course, the number 666
also relates to ancient Babylon
because they had a unique
number system, based on 6
and 60, like we use 10 and 100.
Solution to God’s riddle of 666
Simply put, the number 666 is divided by the sum of its digits (18) to reveal man’s number,
which is “37”. That’s why the riddle says to “calculate” the number of the beast or man’s
number, but then gives a number as 666. A person is supposed to use the number 666 to
“calculate” man’s number. Thus, 666 / (6+6+6) = “37”. After God led me to this answer,
a whole “timeline of 37’s” was revealed to prove the point, which is explained below. Note:
The ‘timeline of years’ doesn’t depend on any human calendar because it has its own logical
starting point and proceeds by counting ‘years’, or revolutions of the earth around the sun.
God’s timeline of 37’s
The main thing that proves “37” is the solution to God’s riddle in Revelation 13 are
the events that happened in Islam and the Church, in units of ‘37-years’. [Chart below]
537 BC – God’s “Book of Truth” was revealed to Daniel
Daniel 11, God’s “Book of Truth”, was given to Daniel in the 3rd year of King Cyrus’ reign
of Babylon (where Daniel was living), which was 537 BC. [Note: 1st year - 539 BC, 538, 537]
Note: I previously started the timeline at 610 AD because it was the start of Islam but
this recent discovery makes even better sense because it shows that God started controlling
certain events on multiples of 37-years as soon as He gave the “Book of Truth” to Daniel.
Plus, it makes better sense because God said to “calculate the number of the beast” in
Revelation 13, which was written way before Muhammad was ever born. Therefore, God
already had the number ‘37’ in mind when Muhammad received his vision.
167 BC – Antiochus IV Epiphanes desecrated the 2nd Jewish Temple
Seleucid King Antiochus IV Epiphanes was different from previous Seleucid or Ptolemaic rulers
(four winds - Dan. 11:4) because he forbade the Jewish religious practices, which led to a revolt.
In 167 BC, after squashing the revolt, he ordered that an altar to Zeus be set up in the
2nd Jewish Temple, and that pigs be sacrificed on the altars to punish the Jews. Subsequently,
Judah Maccabee led another revolt that defeated the Seleucids and afterwards, the Jews
cleansed the Temple. Antiochus IV Epiphanes died, in Syria, before he could enact revenge
and his successor made a compromise to restore religious freedoms to the Jews.
It’s interesting that the reviled acts came exactly 777-years before the vision to Muhammad.
It’s like God was bringing one era to a finish, in 610 AD, while another era was just starting.
Note: Some people have attributed the altar to Zeus to being the ‘abomination that causes
desolation’ but it couldn’t have been because Jesus refers to the abomination in the future.
Nevertheless, it was indeed a significant event, due to where it lands on God’s timeline.
Note: I must give proper credit to a loyal reader of the website, Mark S., for pointing out
that 167 BC was indeed on the timeline. It was brought to his attention because a rare coin
from King Antiochus’s rule was recently discovered in Jerusalem. The discovery of the coin
was odd because excavations had ended in that area, almost 30 years ago, but it was found in
a garden near the Tower of David, next to a wall, during routine conservation work. Seeing
that year on the timeline led me to the above 537 BC. God does work in mysterious ways.
610 - Muhammad’s vision and the ‘Final Empire’ in Daniel 11
610 AD is an important year the timeline because it was the start of Islam. That was the
year that Muhammad supposedly received his vision from Allah and began preaching in Mecca.
Note: It’s not the start of the Islamic calendar because Muhammad was ridiculed for about
12 years, until he gathered his family and a few followers and moved to Medina, where they
spread their new religion by force. That particular move is the start of the Islamic calendar.
Of course, they returned later to conquer Mecca and the rest is history. Muhammad and his
1st four caliphs, called the Rashidun Caliphate, was the original ‘king of the south’ in Daniel 11:5.
Notice: From Muhammad’s vision in 610 AD to the start of Daniel’s final empire in
Dan 11:21, which started in 1979, is exactly ‘37 units of 37-years’. In other words,
610 AD + (37x37) years = 1979. Perfection for the number of the beast!
Seriously, the ‘start of Islam’ is connected to the ‘start of the final empire’ or Islamic
Revolution in Daniel 11:21, by a ‘perfect square’ of the solution to God’s riddle in Rev 13.
Can there be any doubt? Plus, Muhammad’s vision was 666 yrs from Osman’s vision. (below)
869 - The birth of the 12th and final Imam
869 AD was the birth of the 12th and final Imam, Muhammad al-Mahdi, who disappeared
at age 5 (called the occultation) but whom the Shiites believe will return to bring justice
and righteousness to the world (before Jesus returns). Note: The Sunni have a similar
belief about a Mahdi, but believe it could be anyone, not the divine return of this individual.
In any event, the 12th Imam is an important figure in Twelver Islam because that’s how
Twelvers got their name. Plus, it’s the type of Shia Islam practiced in Iran and Iraq.
His birth is on God’s timeline of 37’s because: 610 AD + (7x37) years = 869 AD.
1276 - Osman’s vision (connected by 666 years)
1276 was when Osman received his vision of a vast empire that stretched to three
continents, mentioned in Daniel 11:14. His descendants formed the Ottoman Empire
and several generations later, the vision was fulfilled because they controlled parts of
Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, for over 400 years (outlined in Daniel 11: 15-19).
What’s even more significant is that both major visions in Islam, Muhammad’s and
Osman’s, were separated by 666 years: 610 AD + 666 years = 1276.
1054 & 1720 - The ‘Church’s’ connection
1054 was the mutual excommunications, which took place between the Western Church
(Rome) and the Eastern Church (Constantinople), which started the “great schism.”
The ‘schism’ is on God’s timeline of 37’s because: 610 AD + (12x37) years = 1054.
It effectively divided Church #3 from Church #4 in the Seven Churches of Revelation 2 & 3.
1720 has a connection because that’s when Peter-the-Great eliminated the Patriarch of
Russia and replaced him with a secular assembly, called the Holy Synod (actually in Jan 1721).
(It seems that Peter-the-Great wasn’t very religious.) That was the largest eastern church at
the time because Constantinople had been taken over by Islam (changed to Istanbul). Note: The
Patriarch of Russia was restored in 1917, after the Russian revolution. Yet, it’s interesting that
two major events concerning the east and west churches happened almost exactly 666 yr apart.
2016 has a connection because the leaders of the Western Church (Pope in Rome) and Eastern
Church (Patriarch of Russia) met for the first time since 1054, in Cuba, on February 12, 2016.
Note: They met just one day after Iran’s 37th anniversary started. It was the first event that
I noticed being in a multiple of 37-years and it caused me to start finding all the other events.
1979 - Major events in the North, South, and Israel
1979 was an important year with the Shiites of Iran, who are the ‘North’ in Daniel 11,
starting with verse 21 (Islamic Revolution), and extending to the end of the chapter. It literally
brought the resurgence of Shia influence and power in the Middle East, which was almost gone.
1979 also brought changes in Saudi Arabia, which is the ‘South’ in Daniel 11:25.
The Grand Mosque in Mecca was seized by a group of 400-500 insurgents, who claimed
that they were being led by the Mahdi (Sunni). They claimed that the Saudi government
was corrupt and must be disbanded, which didn’t sit well with the House of Saud. The
insurgents were eventually routed and killed, including the supposed Mahdi. Yet, in the
aftermath of the seizure, the House of Saud enacted much stricter enforcements of Sharia Law
and Wahhabism, which is the jihadi or terrorist form of Islam, which they spread worldwide.
1979 also brought the first peace treaty between Arabs and Jews, when Egyptian president,
Anwar Sadat, signed a peace agreement with Israeli president, Menachem Begin.
As I said, 1979 is an important year on the timeline: 610 AD + (37x37) years = 1979.

Who is the Antichrist?
The antichrist page gives more details of Daniel 7, Revelation 13, Revelation 17, twelvers,
and current events. Briefly, the 666 points to Ahmadinejad because he was the 6th president
of Iran (the final empire in Daniel 11, starting with verse 21) and he will turn 60 years old,
within the 37th anniversary of Iran. In more specific terms, the 37th anniversary of Iran
started February 11, 2016, and Ahmadinejad will be 60 years old on October 28, 2016.
Other than his age and personality, the most compelling argument for Ahmadinejad is that
he has the chance to fulfill a riddle in Revelation 17 about the eight kings. Basically, if he is
elected president of Iran in May 2017, then he will be the 8th president but he will “belong to the
seven”, as the riddle says. Plus, it will mean that Rouhani loses, so the 7th president will serve
only one term, which accounts for the 7th king remaining “a little while”, as the riddle says.
For more details on twelvers, Daniel, Revelation, and Ahmadinejad, see the antichrist page.
Other notable connections between 1979 and 2016 - or the #37
July 17, 2016, was the 77th birthday of the current Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Khamenei, who
was also the 3rd president, making another 3 & 7 coincidence in the 37th anniversary of Iran.
Plus, the 1st Leader of Iran, Khomeini, was born in Sept-1902, and the 2nd Leader, Khamenei,
was born in July-1939, so they were born almost exactly 37 years apart.
Of course, the 6th president, Ahmadinejad, turns 60, in the 37th anniversary of Iran, Oct 28.
Margaret Thatcher became the 1st ‘female’ prime minister of the UK on May 4, 1979.
Theresa May became the 2nd ‘female’ prime minister on July 13, 2016, almost exactly
37 years apart. She was elected after an unexpected “Brexit” vote, for the UK to leave the EU,
which prompted David Cameron to resign. Plus, Theresa May will turn 60 on Oct 1, 2016.
Muhammad Ali was one of the most famous American converts to Islam, in the world.
He was born in 1942 (on God’s timeline of 37’s), visited Israel and prayed at the Al Aqsa mosque
in 1979 (on God’s timeline of 37’s), and died in 2016 (on God’s timeline of 37’s). His funeral
was heralded as an ‘inter-faith’ service, which I find disrespectful to Jesus.
The 37th President of the United States, Richard Nixon, was the only president to resign.
The 37th Congress of the United States began its session on March 4, 1861,
just 5 weeks before the American Civil War, which began on April 12, 1861.
The NASA spacecraft, Juno, arrived at Jupiter on July 5, 2016, to began a planned 37 orbits.
I find it interesting because Jupiter is often associated with Marduk, the patron god of Babylon.
Plus, the space probes, Voyager I & II, passed Jupiter in 1979 (37 years ago). Of course,
those weren’t the first space probes to take photos of Jupiter (Pioneer 10), and Juno wasn’t
the first spacecraft to orbit Jupiter (Galileo), but it’s not a very common occurrence.
The UN Resolution 446 was passed on 3-22-1979, declaring that the building of settlements in
the West Bank was illegal. It was passed because the US abstained. On 12-23-2016, the US
abstained again, enabling the UN to pass another resolution demanding that the settlements stop.
*The only two resolutions concerning settlements to ever pass the UN were 37 years apart.
Snow in the Sahara
On 12-19-2016, there was measurable snow in the Sahara Desert for the first time
since 2-18-1979, about 37 years apart, and both on God’s timeline of 37’s.
There are 37 Great Nats (spirits) who are worshiped in Burmese Buddhism.
The last person who claimed to be the hidden Mahdi, Zahra Kadim, died while attacking
Shiites, along with American and British forces, on Jan 29, 2007, when he was 37 years old.
Note: A person can find many other, more trivial examples but those are the main ones I see
and I’m trying to keep things short.

Related events 666 years apart (as noted at the bottom)
(*I wasn’t just haphazardly marking things that were 666 years apart.)
1. Muhammad’s vision (610) and Osman’s vision (1276) are both notable visions in Islam.
2. The great schism (1054) and Peter the Great (1720) both involved the Christian Churches.
3. The black plague (1350) was a severe distress on mankind and the abomination and rapture
will bring an even greater distress on earth, as it starts God’s wrath in Rev 8 through 19.
Note: It’s appropriate that 1350 was the middle of a 7-year period, rather than just one year,
because the abomination will also be a ‘middle’ in a 7-year period. (Daniel 9:27)
Other religious events ‘not shown’ on the timeline of 37’s
1572 – The St. Bartholomew Day massacre was a wave of Catholic mob violence against
the Huguenots (French Calvinist Protestants), which killed an estimated 5000 – 30,000 people.
For backgroung, the Huguenots had been gaining strength for about a decade when many were
gathered in Paris for a wedding between King Charles IX’s sister and a protestant. King Charles
ordered the killing of a group of Huguenot leaders but the slaughter spread all across France.
It was a turning point in the French Wars of Religion, which ultimately killed about 3 million,
because many of the Huguenot leaders were killed in the massacre.
1646 – The first Native American converted to Christianity.
1942 was the middle of WWII, which lasted from 1939 to 1945. The persecution of the Jews,
during the war, was one of the main things that allowed them to achieve their own nation again.
[There are probably many other religious events on the timeline but those seem fairly significant.]
