Here is wisdom.
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.
A Georgia man was recently fired for not wearing a sticker saying 666. It represented the number of days his factory had operated without an accident. The man had no trouble wearing 665 the day before or 667 the day after, but he refused to wear 666. He was dismissed, but his case is pending in the courts.
I'll let you decide if he has a valid case, but the day is coming during the Great Tribulation when those who refuse to wear the "Mark of the Beast" will be objects of intense discrimination and persecution. The exact nature of this mark is a mystery, but it will be some kind of universal identification code. Six is the number of humanity, even as seven is the number of God. God is 777 -- a Trinity of perfection. Humanity is 666, and it represents the inability of man to measure up to the perfections of God. But don't get too worried about 666. We have a perfect Savior, a perfect salvation, and a perfect future in heaven.
Whatever may come, we will stand strong for Him and bear His testimony to the world in which we live.
