"His Head Wound, Sisera and the Woman"


Readers -

Regarding the AC -

Revelation 13:18
"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. (666).

This "666" number is three letters, making up Strong's word #5516g

Earlier in Revelation 13:3 we read:

"And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast."

checking the bookend on Strong's 5516 greek (666) we find that Strong's 5516 hebrew word =

Sisera
Sisera = "battle array" 1) the conquering general under king Jabin of Hazor and slain by Jael (wife of Heber)

We know that the Bible account of the death of Sisera is one of the most dramatic in the OT. It is found in Judges 4.

In Judges 4:09, Deborah (Judge of Israel) tells the future to Barak
"And she said, I will surely go with thee: notwithstanding the journey that thou takest shall not be for thine honour; for the LORD shall sell Sisera into the hand of a woman. And Deborah arose, and went with Barak to Kedesh."

The host of King Jabin, under Sisera's command, is completely defeated and he alone escapes to the tent of Heber the Kenite meeting his wife, Jael, who offers to hide him in the tent. She gets him something to drink, he falls asleep exhausted, and she covers him with a rug.

The Jael does this in Judges 4:21
"Then Jael, Heber's wife, took a nail of the tent, and took an hammer in her hand, and went softly unto him, and smote the nail into his temples, and fastened it into the ground: for he was fast asleep and weary. So he died."

Revelation 13:18 states that the 666 number (Strong's 5516g)  is the number of a man (the beast out of the sea), who has a mortal head wound.

this is too accurate a match, not verse to verse, but chapter to chapter using the 5516 number as a 'bridge'.

I conjecture then the following:

The "beast" (AC) is delivered his mortal head wound at the hand of a woman ...

while he's asleep.
