Numerics in the Bible (continued)
The number six has always represented man. The first occurrence is found in Genesis 7:6 where Noah is 600 years old. “And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.”
On the sixth day, Adam was created.
When Pharaoh chased the people, he used 600 chosen chariots. 600 men is used often although the reason seems unclear to me.
There were six days of creation. Men are to work six days and rest on the seventh.
There are six names each on two stones. Exodus 28:10, “Six of their names on one stone, and the other six names of the rest on the other stone, according to their birth.”
In II Samuel 21:20 we see that the giants have six fingers and six toes and are pictured as super-men. “And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant.”
A type of anti-Christ has his throne with six steps and six lions on one side and six on the other. Thus we often read about 666. The number 666 represents fallen man at his best. The true God-Man would be 777.
Solomon’s gold for one year was 666 talents!
In Revelation 13:18 we read that the Anti-Christ has a number of 666.
We are living in the sixth dispensation or man’s last chance before Christ returns to set up His kingdom.
