The 666 Odyssey. What or who is the Beast (666)? What is its nature? What are its intentions? What or Who can vanquish it?
The purpose of this article is to attempt to define the Beast (666) of the End Times described in the Book of Revelation, its nature, its intentions, and who or what will vanquish it and finally release Mankind from its clawhold.
The format used will be a two part presentation, first a Parable designed to impart quick understanding on those who best understand ideas by this method, then a more explicit rendition of the same events using historical, scientific, and biblical information, and references to well-known recent and present day events.
A Parable: The 666 Odyssey
During all of Eternity past, there existed only God. His Love of Self kept His Substance and Spirit together . . . but He was lonely . . . and except for Himself, He lacked anyone to love, to care for, to love Him, to worship Him, and to mutually please and satisfy each other . . . So much Love was in Him, that He wished to share it . . .
Knowing that the chances or odds of creating a Universe, and creatures in His image were very high against its happening, the odds being something in the order of billions of trillions against its possibly happening, He nevertheless created such a Universe, and trillions and trillions of galaxies and stars, with the Hope (Faith) that He would succeed at least just once among those . . . He succeeded . . .
And thus began all of future Eternity . . .
About 12-15 billion years ago, He created our Universe, and about 4-5 billion years ago He created our Solar System out of a Supernova explosion in this vicinity of the Universe created by Him. He created a simple, lonely planet capable of sustaining life, and the kinds of creatures He yearned to share His existence with . . . He created life as cells, organisms, animals, plants, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, primates, apes, ape-men, and about 200,000 years ago, Man . . . He waited patiently throughout all of this . . . for His Delight and Glory were now assured.
He knew, understood, and comprehended that this Creation could only happen once . . . and it did . . .
The required conditions were so specific . . . the right physical composition of the Sun, the right physical composition of the Earth, and the perfect and critical distance between them, that these unique conditions could not be duplicated in the other trillion of trillions of trillions of galaxies, stars, and planets . . . It was to be a precious and unique Creation, never to be able to be repeated. As only He was in existence, only He could accomplish it . . . nothing else existed, and nothing else could accomplish it . . .
The physical conditions which both created and maintained the little planet, Earth, had to continue to work to sustain Man and all the other life He created. The Universe had to be physically maintained, to also sustain the little planet, and what was happening in that Universe would impact on the little planet. However, He put in the Man Consciousness and Intelligence for him to know, to study, to investigate, to discover, to learn, and to be aware of these unavoidable housekeeping conditions which sometimes would threaten Man's existence. The Consciousness and Intelligence were also for Him to be able to be recognized as their Creator, and for instant communication back and forth with Him . . . He so loved his created . . . Loved them as much as He loved Himself . . .
He had already pre-determined that His beloved creatures, Mankind, would be akin to Him, in His own image He created them . . . "Lambs with Intelligence" but lambs nevertheless, mammalian beings capable of feeling as much love for Him as He felt for them.
By all of the preceding events of His creation already described, He placed them on an Earth which was originally in its totality a Garden of Eden, and gave them dominion over it . . . to tend and keep it, to love and cherish it, and to derive their sustenance and delight from it . . .
In endowing them with a Mammalian Emotional Brain, he made it possible for them to never feel afraid, never feel fear, and to love Him and each other as He loved them . . . and He rested from all the exertion and burden on His Spirit which the Creation had caused. He trusted that Mankind was perfect, as perfect as He could possibly ever have created them . . . He trusted His Creation and His Created . . . and so He rested . . .
Then about 100,000 years ago something jarred His rest . . .
The Earth underwent the last of a long series of Glacial Periods and His created Mankind, for the first time, felt and experienced intense and paralyzing Fear. To be sure, most of His "Lambs with Intelligence" were not afraid, and intelligently followed the beckoning warmth of the Tropical sun, a sign that He had set for them to follow. A few of his lambs stayed in the path of the advancing glaciers, out of a paralyzing fear, and out of a bravado and a rebellious nature.
These lambs, now surrounded by a destitute, barren, and rapidly freezing environment had to take quick refuge in the nearest dark caves. They had, as did all of His lambs, a Reptilian part in their Emotional Brains which was necessary to maintain their physiological functions, and to endow them with Will Power and Independence of Being. This emotional part of their brains was the seat of the emotion of Fear, it was the only emotion which this emotional brain part was capable of feeling. It also was the seat of the drives for Territoriality, Ritual, Display, Aggression (Violence), and Deceit, these six (6) emotional centers exclusively, and no other drives or emotions.
Life, securing it, and just bare survival was difficult in the caves . . . gone was the Garden of Eden . . . and the security and love which only He could provide . . .
At first these lambs huddled in the caves, not believing that the conditions outside were going to last . . . but they did . . . for a long time (for 100,000 years) . . .
During those 100,000 years, slowly . . . their hearts grew cold, and hardened . . .
The equally harsh environments outside and inside the caves molded them genetically, and molded the circuitry of their brains, to strengthen the Reptilian part of their Emotional Brains . . . they slowly, with each passing generation, became . . . "Talking Snakes" . . .
As naturally happens with cave dwellers, they adapted genetically to the lightless conditions inside the caves. They acquired a fair skin, and some in the northernmost parts of the little planet acquired blond hair and blue eyes. Their now strengthened Reptilian Emotional Brain rendered them territorial within the cave environment, and they employed rituals and paintings to remember their Edenic past . . . the pastures . . . the hunt . . . the security, love, and care they had once known and enjoyed from their God . . .
But they had to develop displays of force, aggression, violence, and deceit, in the fierce competition for what only a few could have in the cave environment . . . These also, became genetic traits in them . . .
In some caves, they developed promiscuity as an adaptation to the scarcity of mates. In other caves, they developed homosexuality as an adaptation to a lack of opposite-gender mates. Violent rapes developed where the desired objects of their sexual passion did not submit willingly . . . violence and death became common fare . . .
And there was always the soul-numbing Fear, fear of anything, everything, and everyone around them . . .
Then, about 40,000 years ago, the Glaciers receded, and the Ice Ages ended. Slowly the lambs which had become "Talking Snakes" came out of the caves, and slowly, the Garden was restored again . . .
Slowly, most of the lambs which had become "Talking Snakes" in the caves were healed genetically in the restored Garden, and gave rise to a beautiful and Great White Race of "Lambs with Intelligence" worthy of His Pride, His Approval, His Love, and His Blessings . . . but unable to rein in completely their acquired reptilian traits . . . they required His forgiveness, and needed His direct guidance . . .
Some of the lambs which had become "Talking Snakes" in the caves did not heal at all, and actually acquired a darker soul, a more sinister and satanic nature . . . these became the entities of the Beast (666) . . .
God had long ago, from before He created the Universe, expected that something as what happened would indeed happen, and had a plan to correct it, to return His lambs to their original state. He also knew they required and needed forgiveness for their occasional lapses into reptilian ways while they healed genetically, and that they all yearned for eternal life in the restored Garden . . . He knew . . . He cared . . . He listened . . . He loved them . . . as much as He loved Himself . . . He would grant their every wish . . .
He would send them His only-begotten Son for just these purposes . . .
But the unredeemable "Talking Snakes," the satanic entities of the Beast (666), betrayed and destroyed His Son before He could finish His work . . .
God controlled His anger, at the behest of His Son on the cross . . . but did not forget . . . just waited . . . and watched . . .
He watched as the hearts of the entities of the Beast (666) hardened even more, and as in their satanic ways they drew a stifling clawhold on the souls of His lambs. They acquired the ability to run the economy of the Garden, and used it to control everything in the lives of His lambs. He watched them indiscriminately finance every activity which threatened to permanently destroy the Garden. He watched as His lambs in their pain and confusion lived under the power of the Beast (666). He watched the Beast (666) foment and start wars, establish organized crime, finance the production of Cocaine and other drugs . . . and develop plans in their hearts to totally dominate His lambs and His Garden . . . and to deceive and destroy in the hearts, minds, and souls of His lambs the love they had for Him and for His Son . . . and set up over them a False God (Find: "World Authority" in Beyond the Holocaust: Survival or Extinction? A Survival Manual for Humanity, by Peter A. Zuckerman).
His lambs are confused, bewildered, and helpless to stop any of this . . .
His heart is pained . . . for this is His Creation . . . this is His Garden . . . these are His lambs . . . for He is their God . . . and there cannot be any other . . .
The damage done by the Beast (666) is already threatening to become irreversible . . . unless He acts. He had already sent . . . His Son . . . as the Son of God . . . to redeem his Garden, to return it to His lambs, to redeem all His lambs from sin, to guide them into regaining the eternal life He originally granted them, and to establish His Kingdom once and for all . . .
He watched . . . He knew . . . He cared . . . He listened . . . He loves them . . . as much as He loves Himself . . . He will grant their every wish . . . He will send them His only-begotten Son as the Son of Man once again for just these purposes . . .
This parable cannot be finished at present. But the end of it is near . . . very near . . .
"For the vision is yet for an appointed time,
but at the end it shall speak, and not lie:
though it tarry, wait for it;
because it will surely come, it will not tarry." (Hab 2:3)
God will pour out His Wrath from the Cup of His Indignation, overflowing with His Anger without admixture with Pity or Mercy (Rev 14:10) . . .
What or who is the Beast (666)? What is its nature? What are its intentions? What or Who can vanquish it?
On second thought, I don't think there is any need to give a more explicit rendition of the same events covered by the parable just presented, . . . don't you agree?

"Reward her even as she rewarded you,
and double unto her double according to her works:
in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double." (Rev 18:6)
