"Let he who is wise calculate the number of the beast?"
Notice how these numbers
were added by the Jews who developed this concept called Gematria.
Gematria is a Kabbalistic method of interpreting the Hebrew scriptures by computing the numerical value of words, based on those of their constituent letters..
Here we see
that we keep adding until we end with one digit only, 8, in this case.
So a case can be made that the real number of the beast is:
6+6+6 = 18 = 1+8 = 9!
The name of God, YHVH, in the Hebrew alphabet is Yod, He, Vau, He.
Yod = 10, He = 5, Vau = 6, He = 5,
So: 10 + 5 + 6 + 5 = 26.
And, 2 + 6 = 8
Hence, the number of God is eight.

Rev. 13:9 If any man have an ear, let him hear: "WORLD
WAR II IS COMING".
Rev. 13:10 He that leadeth into captivity, (GERMANY),
shall go into captivity, (THE ALLIED OCCUPATION): he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith
of the saints, (BELIEVE, FOR IT HAS COME TO PASS!).
Rev. 13:11 And I beheld another beast, coming up out of the
earth; and he, (HITLER), had two horns (Germany and
Italy) like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon, (his words
those of Nietzsche and the technological wizardry of the Superego Will).
Rev. 13:12 And he, (HITLER), exerciseth all the power of the first beast, (INDUSTRIALIZED GERMANY), before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast,
(A REVIVED ROMAN EMPIRE or Western Europe), whose deadly wound
(of CHRISTIAN CONVERSION OVER ALL ROME, IN 380AD) was healed
(AND THE DARK AGES THOUSAND YEAR REIGN OF CHRIST HAD ENDED, WITH THE RENAISSANCE).
Rev. 13:13 And he, (IN HIS TECHNOLOGY), doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire (incendiary bombs) come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men (throughout WWII),
Rev. 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the
means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast, (industrialized economic empire); saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image
to the beast, (The Fatherland), which had the wound
(by a sword from the mouth of Christ), and did now live again.
Rev. 13:15 And he, (IN HIS SCIENCE/TECHNOLOGY),
had power to give life unto the image of the beast, (THE SWASTIKA), that the image of the beast should both speak, ("SIEG HEIL," over radio and propaganda movies) and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
Rev. 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich
and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark (OF THE SWASTIKA IN A SALUTE OF "SIEG HEIL") in their right hand, or in (THE ENSIGNIA OF THE CAPS OF) their foreheads:
Rev. 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that
had the mark (OF THE SWASTIKA), or the name of the beast,
(the empire of the German Fatherland), or the number of his name,
(666. However, the oldest manuscripts say 616 = 6 +1 + 6 = 13 = 1 + 3 = 4).
(In Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany, civilians and soldiers saluted by holding their right arms out at an angle, palms
Rev. 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding
count the number, (the world population), of the beast: for
it is the number of a man, (Modern Homo sapiens); and his
number is Six hundred threescore and six (6.66 billion in population??).**

By April 1945, Hitler had become a broken man.
His head, hands, and feet trembled, and he was tortured by stomach
cramps. Eva Braun, Hitler's mistress since the 1930's, joined him at his headquarters in a bomb shelter under the Reich Chancellery
in Berlin. She and Hitler were married there on April 29. The next day, they killed themselves. Aides burned their bodies.
Seven days later, Germany surrendered.
Pius XI (1857-1939) was elected pope of the Roman Catholic Church in 1922. In 1929, he negotiated the Lateran Treaty that
ended a long conflict between the papacy and the Kingdom of Italy called the "Roman question." The treaty gave the pope sovereignty
over Vatican City. Pius was increasingly confronted by the rise of totalitarian governments in Europe. In 1931, he issued
an encyclical (letter to the entire church) condemning Italian Fascism. He negotiated a concordat (agreement) with Nazi Germany
in 1933, but he condemned both Nazism and Communism in separate encyclicals in 1937.
It is interesting that many of the oldest writing of scripture uses the number 616 here, instead of 666. That date, 616,
was the date when Mohammed first uttered the Koran before other people. It is believed Mohammed did not write. Hence, 616
would be the oldest record of the words of that text.
It was also interesting that in 666 AD the Koran may have been first set down in writing in just that range of time.
So, here we have an 11th horn which rises up among the other 10 kings, but is noted as different in kind.
And that horn of Islam does become an Empire. One that holds the land of Israel in its possession until 1917. Then, exactly
at Armageddon, a World War I battle defeats the Muslim caliphate, kills 7000 soldiers, and causes the empire to fall apart
during the next seven years, 1917-1922.
That victory leads to the return of the Jews in 1948 AD, when Hitler, joined by the Arabs of Palestinia in 1933, again
attack the Jews in the diaspora. Both these numbers, 616 and 666, seem coincidentally correct to the history.
"In 1972, in a mosque in the city of Sana'a, Yemen, manuscripts were discovered that were later proved to be the
most ancient Quranic text known to exist at the time. The Sana'a manuscripts contain palimpsests, a manuscript page from which
the text has been washed off to make the parchment reusable again—a practice which was common in ancient times due
to scarcity of writing material. However, the faint washed-off underlying text (scriptio inferior) is still barely visible
and believed to be "pre-Uthmanic" Quranic content, while the text written on top (scriptio superior) is believed
to belong to Uthmanic time. Studies using radiocarbon dating indicate that the parchments are dated to the period before
671 AD with a 99 percent probability."
