Realization of Prophetic Visions
By Philip Mark Ames
Name-Number of Beast
Revelation 17:3 states that
the beast is full of names of blasphemy. Any of these would be a name of the
wild beast. For example, one of the democratic beast's names would be "The
People's Republic of China."
Another might be "France";
The name of each country is blasphemous because it stands for a governmental
system which demands the worshipful allegiance of its citizens. The locality of
each computer bank will also have a name, and a specific number corresponding
to that name. These also would be names and numbers of the wild beast.
The full significance of the
wild beast's number, as seen by John, remains to be seen. But, since John
stated that it is a number which would be counted, added up, calculated, or
computed, it is quite possible that 600-60-6 is the largest of many
location-identifying numbers. It may be that each of the six inhabited
continental areas of the world will be divided into as many as sixty regions.
Each region could have up to six hundred local computer centers. In that case,
the highest number for a name of the wild beast would be 600-60-6. The lowest
might be 001- 01-1. The last digit would indicate the continental area of the
account holder (Europe, North America, etc.).
The middle two digits would locate the region of that continental area (Maine, Texas, Nevada, etc.). The first
three digits would identify the local office where the accounts are kept. Thus
the full name of one of democracy's computer centers might be San
Angelo, Texas, North
America. The number of that particular name of the wild beast
might be 357-24-1. The number of the wild beast's name in Cairo,
might be 009-02-5. Of course, I don't expect that either of these examples will
be the real name- number combinations as devised by technocracy. I give them
only to show the possible name number relationships which may be established
world wide for efficiently carrying out the will of the people.
By means of the computerized
name-number system, the world economy will be stabilized. Technocracy will seem
to have succeeded in assuring political peace and economic security for the
people who believe in the democratic way. But democracy has a built-in peril to
individual liberty: when the will of the majority is enforced, the freedom of
the minority is curtailed.
Woe to the faithful
worshipper of the One True God, when the will of the people prevails. The
dragon's warfare against the individual Spirit begotten children of God will
have proved devastating; by then, any not yielding to the pressures and
temptations will be put to death by the agents of democracy and its image.
Satan's successor will rule supreme, aided by its powerful ten horns and by its
technocratic false prophet. But John's vision reveals the existence of one more
enemy of God's people. An evil woman rules the beast.
