Clinton having the number of the Beast?
I received the following in my email. I do not agree with the sender's methods, for one thing, he uses his own numerical system for English letters, which does not exist in reality, and he manipulates numbers, as is the method of numerologists, to get the results he wanted. Contrast this with the method I used to get the number of the Beast wherein (1) I used the classical method to calculate the number, (2) I used both Biblical languages and their respective numerical values, and (3) I used the official spelling of the name of the President (William J. Clinton).
I asked him where he got his authority to use his method of numbers and he wrote back:
I also asked him,
He wrote back,
You be the judge.
From Joe King, JKFanClub@aolcom , I received the following on December 16, 1998:
Is this the year of Christ's Second Coming? 555 + 666 + 777 = 1998. Seven is the number of perfection, six the number of imperfection, while five would symbolize either the world or mankind. Obviously, in this imagery the three sevens would symbolize Jesus Christ's return, possibly in 1998. Or, it may indicate that the New Pentecost may begin in 1998, ultimately resulting in His return within our lifetimes. . . .
[Joe King first calculates Christ as 77 then moves on the number 666.]
A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, E=5, F=6, G=7, H=8, I=9, J=10, K=11, L=12, M=13, N=14,
O=15, P=16, Q=17, R=18, S=19, T=20, U=21, V=22, W=23, X=24, Y=25, Z=26
Who is the man, known as The Beast in Revelation, whose number totals 666?
The following also came to me through the power of the Holy Spirit regarding our current President:
By adding six sixes, the result is 666.
[My comment: Notice he does not use the number of his name, but the number of his title, his city, his country, and not his official name (William J. Clinton), but his casual name (Bill Clinton). And notice he uses his own numerical system. He also has calculated Jesus C. and Christ as 77 in English.]
Note: In an email message dated December 16, 1998, he gave me his permission to post this to the web. I do not know his name.
