"Is the Beast an as Assyrian?"


Readers-

The word "beast", in this famous verse -

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."

is Strong's 2342g Therion = beast , wild animal

it's greek value is

    247

checking all Bible words that have an in-text value of 247 we find that the first one listed is

Strong's 257h = Aram (Syria)

found in

Genesis 10:22
"The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and ARAM."

the word "Sixhundred, threescore and six" from the above verse is Strong's hebrew word

    5516h

checking all verses that have a total verse gematria of 5516 reveals two verses, the first of which is:

2 Kings 19:20
"Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, That which thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of ASSYRIA I have heard."

The concept that the AC is an Assyrian is not out of line with my thinking that the Rapture happens when Damascus, Syria is destroyed, and the AC is revealed.
