1. Although having the number of the Beast does not in itself mean he
is the Beast-man, the Beast will have the number six hurdred sixty-six (666) when he
comes, and will be a great liar. ["When he lies,
he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies."
(John 8:44)] No leader has had a name that equals six hundred sixty-six (666) in both
languages of the Bible, Hebrew and Greek. This may be "impossible," but Clinton
is that person. Will he become the anti-christ or false-prophet?
"C" = "k" sound. In English, the
sound of "c" is the sound of "k"
before all consonants. (Webster's New World Dictionary)
"J" & "Y": The letter "J"
in most proper names starting with "J" in English Bibles is transliterated from
the Hebrew "Y". The English letter "J" in such names
as "Jesus" or "Jehovah" or "Jerusalem" are transliterated to
a Hebrew, "y" or vice versa;
No Vowels: Hebrew
had no written vowel letters, and thus no numerical value for them.
stigma: This old
Greek letter had the sound of an English "w." (see the 1966
Unabridged Edition of the Random House Dictionary, 1966, under the letter
"W" and under "digamma." See also A.T. Robertson in his A
Grammar of the Greek New Testament, p. 209) This Greek letter was dropped
and is no longer used except in charts that represent the numerical values of
Closed Vowel: "A diphthong is a
combination of two vowels in a single syllable. The second letter of a diphthong is always
a close[d] vowel. The first letter is always an open vowel except in the case of yi [ypsilon,
iota]." (New Testament Greek for Beginners, MacMillan-1945, by J.
Gresham Machen) "The Greeks resisted the idea of one vowel
following another ... When the verb starts with a vowel, instead of adding
another vowel [to change its "tense"], that vowel becomes
long." (Edward W. Goodrich, Hebrew and Greek)
Iota sometimes has the force of the
consonants j (y). (A Grammar of the Greek New Testament In light of
Historical Research, by A.T. Robertson, p.198.) English
names beginning with "J" such as "Jesus" or "Jesse" or
"Judah" are transliterated into an "I", the Greek letter iota.
