www in Hebrew is--a startling visual for today...

Guess how you write www in Hebrew. 666. No kidding. I once took a class in Hebrew, for fun, and noticed this extremely interesting little detail.

Here's why: Like Roman numerals, Hebrew letters are also numbers. And unlike in English, Hebrew is read from left to right.

So, take a look at the chart and notice there is no w. If you wanted to write www.whatever etc. in Hebrew, theoretically, you would use the v.

Scroll way down to the numbers. You'll see that if you wrote vvv, you wrote the equivalent of--666.

Now, this article points out that that is not the same as six hundred and sixty and six. In Roman numerals, you wouldn't use III to write one hundred eleven.

All I know is, it's a very startling visual in these times when Jerusalem is a "burdensome stone" always in the news along with Persia, Babylon, Gog and Magog. (Iran, Iraq, and Russia.)

We live in interesting times. Knowledge increasing, people traveling, markets shuddering, sabers rattling. What all this means depends on your school of thought, and my friends are free to subscribe to their own.

And if I were ruler of the world, I would communicate with the world via the internet, wouldn't you? On the 666.

(Of course, the internet itself is neither good nor evil. It is used for much good and much evil.)

While we're not to obsess, but stay busy, still, there is the promise of a crown for those who long for His appearing.

Again, my friends are free to enjoy their own schools of thought. But I think it's too much a coincidence to be a coincidence.

What do you think?

While you're thinking, get ready!

God bless~

Margo--We already have biometric scanning of the eye to gain admittance into a classified area or whatever. My husband said (in response to your blog) that if the Internet came under some type of regulation, it's possible that in order to use the Internet (in other words, in order to conduct commerce), a camera on the computer would scan your forehead or your hand before you would be allowed access. 666, baby! Oh, dear Lord. Thanks for a thought-provoking post!!!

Interesting. I always thought it would be at the cash register. Or non-cash register! I never thought of it in terms of doing commerce online. Thanks for *your* thought-provoking comment!
