SATANIC CRUCIFIX: THE NUMBER OF THE MARK, 666
By Norbert H. Kox
"Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." (Revelation 13: 18).
Greek and Hebrew do not have separate numbering systems. Each letter of the Alphabet has a numerical value, so that numbers are written with letters. "Six hundred threescore and six," is written in the New Testament Greek with the letters, Chi, Xi, and Stigma.
The Greek Chi-Xi-Stigma is Six Hundred, Sixty and Six. It is also an acrostic abbreviation for the crucifix. Acrostic means that each of the number/letters is the initial letter of a word or phrase. The three Greek letters of the acrostic, in Revelation 13: 18, need to be deciphered. Each letter is an initial in the cryptic abbreviation. The number 666, besides being the number of the Beast, is also an acronym describing an idol (abomination) or image of the Beast. Scripture says this image would be given a spirit (Revelation 13: 15).
Value Initial Sound Represents Translation
600 = Chi = khee = Christos = Christ
60 = Xi = ksee = xulon = cross
+6 = Stigma = st = Stigma = pierced, nailed through the hands
666 = Christ-cross-pierced (image of Christ on cross = crucifix)
Strong's Concordance #5516 "Chi Xi Stigma [khee xee stig-ma]; 22nd, 14th and obsolete letter (4742 as a cross) of the Greek alphabet (intermediate between the 5th and 6th letters) used as numbers; denoting respectively 600, 60 and 6; 666 as a numeral: -Six hundred three score and six."
[Interestingly, the 22nd, 14th and 6th letters of the Hebrew Alphabet (Tau, Nun, Waw) spell tanu, "his dragon"].
The Greek acrostic here is represented by the letters CHI, XI, STIGMA, which are 666. Each letter represents a word.
Chi is the first letter of Christos (Christ). X (Chi) is an abbreviation for Christ, viz. X-mas is Christmas.
Xi, is the abbreviation letter for Xulon, a timber or tree (Strong's #3586). Thayer's New Testament Lexicon defines xulon as, "that which is made of wood, as a beam from which anyone is suspended, a gibbet, a cross" (p.432, #3586). Peter used the word xulon when speaking of the cross (Acts 10:39, Acts 5:30, Gal. 3:13, 1Peter 2:24).
Stigma (Strong's #4742) "from a prime stizo (to 'stick', or prick); a mark incised or punched (for recognition or ownership) i.e. (figurative) a scar of service; a mark," i. e. "pierced." According to
Donnegan's Greek Lexicon, stigma is "a hole, or mark, made with a pointed instrument. a mark of recognition or of disgrace. a mark of infamy. a mark made on the hands of persons who had enlisted as soldiers" (p. 1150). Under the entry of #5516 (Chi Xi Stigma), Strong's informs us that #4742 (stigma) is also a cross. Therefore, the word, and letter, stigma have a definite reference to being nailed to a cross, or the marks/nail-holes from being nailed to a cross.
The plural of stigma is stigmata. The so-called Catholic saints who had manifested the stigmata, bleeding wounds of Christ, like Saint Francis, Padre Pio and Teresa Neuman, were probably possessed by a deceiving spirit. They had wounds in the palms of their hands (and the other wounds). Modern archeological and scientific evidence has proven that crucified persons had the nails driven through the heel of the hands, or through the wrists, but not the palms of the hands. So the manifestation of bleeding wounds in the palms cannot be a sign from God, because it is inaccurate. It is a lie. Satan is the father of lies, according to the Bible. Individuals manifesting the stigma or stigmata have literally materialized the CHI XI STIGMA, the mark and number of the Beast, 666.
Each letter in the 666 cipher represents a word. CHI = Christ; XI = Cross; STIGMA = Holes in hands/nailed to a cross. The deciphered acronym (CHI XI STIGMA) defines an image of, "Christ pierced and nailed on a cross," i.e. A Catholic crucifix. An image of idolatry.
The number 666, is the number of the Beast and also the acronym describing an idol (abomination) or image of the Beast. Scripture says this image would be given a spirit (Revelation 13: 15). Many Catholic "saints" have witnessed this spirit, and have seen the image on the cross come to life and have heard it speak to them. There is much documentation referencing the many physical manifestations of crucifixes bleeding genuine blood, and crying real tears.
Many millions of Catholics kneel before crucifixes each day. I was once one of them.
Yahweh's Ten Commandments strictly forbid us from bowing before an image (Exodus 20: 4-5).
CHI XI STIGMA, the 666 mark/symbol is a crucifix/idol.
The English gematria of CROSS is 666
The icon/image of the Beast, is the false image of Christ seen on the erroneous crucifixes perpetrated by the Catholic Church, and reinforced by the Warner Sallman "Head of Christ" icon. The crucifix/cross was a Pagan symbol, an image of sun-worship, as well as an instrument of torture and execution. The Catholic Eucharistic Host (sun-disk wafer) is marked with a cross. It is believed to be the "real presence" of "Jesus" (Jesus is the false name). Thus, it has been given a spirit (cf. Revelation 13: 15). When it is placed in the tabernacle on the Catholic altar, it is "the abomination of desolation, standing in the holy place."
Nine is the number of Divine manifestation and judgment. A proven method of gematrical calculation in the English Language assigns the number nine to the letter A, and each following letter is a multiple of nine. A = 9, B = 18, C = 27, etc. The word "cross" calculates to 666, the number of the Beast.
The apostate church adapted the cross as a mark of "Christianity." The CROSS/Crucifix is the mark/symbol that identifies pseudo-Christianity.
C = 27
Six is the number of rebellious mankind, and the triple six represents the great rebellion and allegiance to the Beast.
To kneel before a crucifix in reverence is to give honor to the Beast/Antichrist. To pray before it is to worship the Antichrist. For a person to wear a crucifix, or even a plain cross, is to don the symbol of the Antichrist. Of course, most people do not know this. That is precisely why it is called a deception.
