We can count "words of Christ" or "deeds of Christ",

Christ is like an Image(uncountable)!
Like Water, Christ has no Plural forms!




Rejoice and Sing for as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west,
so will be the coming of the Son of Man.


Who then is the faithful and wise servant,
whom the Master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their FOOD at the proper time?
It will be good for that servant whose Master finds him doing so when He returns!!!!!
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood,
but against the Rulers,
against the Authorities,
against the cosmic powers over this present darkness,
against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. שׂש س
Therefore take up the whole armor(A-Z) of God,
that you may be able to withstand in the evil day,

They control thru letters aka (idols of mens law ѯ) but when exposed to the Light of Christ they are revealed!
Some are noble paths and some are racist evil paths.
They make up Gods Law using χξϛ and use it as a weapon to keep their jobs.
If men keep playing god in the middle east leading themselves and others to Hell, the real One might just show up!

But woe to you, Scribes and Pharisees, Imams, Pastors, Rabis, Isis, you Hypocrites!
For you shut the Kingdom of Heaven in people's faces.
For you neither enter yourselves nor allow those who would enter to go in.
By this it is evident who are the children of God,
and who are the children of the devil:
whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, usA
nor is the one who does not love his fellow man. Isis
Take no part in the unfruitful works of their darkness,

Muslims should pray for Christians and
Christians should pray for Muslims!
That is what the Lord Commands!

It is the Image of Christ written in our Hearts as "Grace"; that thru are we Saved.
Jesus died on the cross for all people on the earth to stop Racism and end Letter Worship as Idols that we make in our Image!
Quit Worshipping Letters ن as Idols & focus on Christ Jesus the Alpha & Omega!

Quote:
The Greek language formed the basis of some of the mathematical words we use today. The word geometry comes from a Greek word for "earth measuring." Another modern word that comes from Greek is arithmetic, which comes from arithmos. The Greeks had fun with numbers, and arithmos, which means number, denoted discovering secrets and figuring out puzzles about numbers. The Greek sense of curiosity about numbers probably helped them unravel many problems that earlier mathematicians could not figure out. The Greeks loved to argue, debate, and figure out how to prove everything they observed.

Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

“This, then, is how you should pray:

“ ‘Our Father in heaven,

how Holy be your name,

your Kingdom come,

your Will be done,

on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts,

as we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from the evil one.

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 

But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins!


Quote:
P47 is from the third century and is the oldest manuscript
of the Book of Revelation. It contains parts of chapters 9-17.
We will consider its readings for numbers in Rev 13:18 and
neighboring verses in the next section.

Because, as listed above, the majority of the manuscripts
(mostly late Byzantine miniscule manuscripts) include the
representation of the number six hundred sixty-six by the three
letters (chi)(xi)(stigma), the text presented in another modern
(but non-standard) edition called not surprisingly THE GREEK NEW
TESTAMENT ACCORDING TO THE MAJORITY TEXT, does so also.[20] Note
that there is a major disagreement in presuppositions about the
value of various manuscripts and manuscript groups between the
editors of this edition and those of the standard editions.[21]

The so-called Textus Receptus which acted as the standard
from the 16th century (the actual term first being used in the
17th) until well into the 19th century when modern critical
editions started to displace it, was an evolution of early
printed editions of the Greek NT. Its printed text also used the
(chi)(xi)(stigma) notation. The main textual basis of this
edition was only a handful of fairly late manuscripts, a subset
of the majority text.

VI. Papyrus P47 in Detail on the Numbers of Rev 13:18

As mentioned above, P47 is the oldest extant manuscript
which contains part of the Book of Revelation. However, its
method of representing the number six hundred sixty-six (using
Greek alphabetic numerals) is not the one selected by the
"standard" critical text (which spells out the number words).
The textual apparatus of NA26 shows other variations of P47 from
the usual text, even in other places in Rev 13:18.

Although the use of a modern printed critical edition of the
Greek New Testament is within the ability of anyone who can read
the Koine Greek, the potential of looking at actual copies
(reproductions) of individual manuscripts is slight. Even many
theological libraries would not have the printed (published)
editions which would contain photographs of the desired
manuscript.

In this case we are lucky because Kurt and Barbara Aland in
their widely available textbook (pun-intended) THE TEXT OF THE
NEW TESTAMENT (in both the first and second English editions of
1987 and 1989) include a Plate 23 on page 90 which shows
Rev 13:16-14:4 of P47. (Note that the caption of this plate is
incorrect in that it attributes P47 to the the second century
whereas in other places in the book they give the usual third
century date).

As mentioned in the description of the Greek alphabetic
number system above, the usual way to signal that letters are
being used as numerals is by a horizontal line above the
letter-numbers. (A horizontal line can also mean something
else.)

On the ninth line down from the top of this fragment (all
line counts will exclude what might be counted as the first line
which seems to include only one character at the very top of the
plate) we can see the first horizontal line overscore. This is
indeed over the three letters (chi)(xi)(stigma) which represents
the six hundred sixty-six of Rev 13:18.

Quote:
The earliest of these Greek New Testament manuscripts are the papyri. They are given that name because they are written on papyrus, an ancient type of writing material made from the fibrous pith of the papyrus plant, which in ancient times grew plentifully along the river Nile. Eighty-one of these papyri have now been discovered, many of them mere fragments. (4)

The most important of these papyrus manuscripts are the Chester Beatty Papyri and the Bodmer Papyri. The Chester Beatty Papyri were published in 1933-37. They include Papyrus 45 ( Gospels and Acts, c. 225 A.D. ), Papyrus 46 (Pauline Epistles, c. 225 A.D.), and Papyrus 47 (Revelation, c. 275 A.D. ).




So we turn our attention from p47 to Chester Beatty!

Quote:
The Chester Beatty Papyri

"The Chester Beatty Papyri is the name of a group of biblical manuscripts acquired mainly in 1930 by A. Chester Beatty, an American collector. The had been discovered at Aphroditopolis, N. of Memphis in Egypt, probably originating from the library of a Christian church.

The manuscripts are substantial portions of papyrus codices: (1) seven from the OT, including large parts of Genesis, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Esther, and Ecclesiastes; (2) three from the NT, containing the Gospels with Acts, the Pauline Epistles, and Revelation; (3) one with part of the pseudepigraphical Book of Enoch and a second century homily of the passion.

The number of surviving leaves in these codices varies greatly, the most remarkable being P46 (Pauline Epistles and Hebrews) with 86 nearly complete leaves out of a total of 104. After Beatty acquired the original 10, the University of Michigan acquired another 30, and Beatty another 46, all from the same codex. This collection of papyri, dated to the second and third centuries A.D., provides important textual evidence for OT and especially NT prior to the great vellum codices of the fourth century and later."

Photographic facimilies have been created for each page and are available for study. All of the verses which we have from them have been edited by Frederic Kenyon. The have also been made available in the critical text of Erwin Nestle's translation of the New Testament (title: Novum Testamentum Graece).

Most modern versions/translations of the New Testament in English are based upon this text, so the Chester Beatty Material is imbedded within the translation wherever extant material was available to impact or contribute to the text.

This entire work is based on a compilation mostly of the Chester Beatty material, but also includes the other ancient Greek documents of the New Testament.

I would recommend that you buy Nestle's Greek Text of the New Testament, start learning Greek, and you will be reaching your stated objective, since the Chester Beatty material is there.

Took the orignal greek letters for the gifs below but can't find a way to create them with a Nomina sacra

χξϛ͵= 666               χϛ͵ = 606                          χιϛ͵ = 616     χξ͵ = 660
from greek number converter

Nomina sacra
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nomina_sacra
means "sacred names" in Latin and refers to the Christian scribal practice of abbreviating several frequently occurring divine names or titles, especially in Greek manuscripts of Holy Scripture. A nomen sacrum consists of two or more letters from the original word spanned by an overline. In the system of nomina sacra that came to prevail, abbreviation is by contraction, meaning that the first and last letter (at least) of each word are used.
Using the normal list of numerical values, the total value of the letters in
Jesus σταυρος is 1,270
But if the first two letters are combined as the obsolete letter stau, or stigma,
then the numerical value of ϛ+α+υ+ρ+ο+ς = 6+1+400+100+70+200 = 777
Then is created a stupid religion because of numerology where men decides the number of the Beast & can create a new Language to hide the Beast's Image and Name.
Numerology is any belief in the divine, mystical relationship between a number and one or more coinciding events. It is often associated with the paranormal...nope its just gk(arithmos) its not sacred but a number!

examples of Nomina sacra:

If we apply the Greek/Hebrew Lang as the letters in the 666/616 formula we get
This applies to any Religion on the planet if the Goverment can change the ABC's anti-sigma?
Also could apply to Hitler or any Leader voted into office? UnGodly men blindly following their new Messiah?
Beats me, 666 reminds us of evil because we have been taught that Image of it. Maybe thats the point? Another idol?

In the NT they used Ø Theos Greek for God
Øשׂשس Quit Worshipping Letters as Idols & focus on Christ Jesus the Alpha & Omega!


Also the top line above the 666 is to represent a number in Greek but it doesn't fully cover the last letter. Odd

The last letter could be a six or a 60 or probaly better the word Stigma, which matches the verses before it in Revelation Chapter 13 verse 16-17.
16. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17. And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

If ya change the sigma then what?

Let's ask the Boss!

The teachings of Jesus Christ



That was a wake up call, I needed to hear that, reading everything gets old after a while!



Matthew 24
Take heed that no man deceive you.
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars:
see that ye be not troubled:
for all these things must come to pass,
but the end is not yet.

For nation shall rise against nation,
and kingdom against kingdom:
and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
all of these are the beginning of sorrows.

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted,
and shall kill you:
and ye shall be hated of all nations
for my name's sake.

And then shall many be offended,
and shall betray one another,
and shall hate one another.

And many false prophets shall rise,
and shall deceive many.

And because iniquity shall abound,
the love of many shall wax cold.

But he that shall endure unto the end,
the same shall be saved.

And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Immediately after the tribulation of those days
 shall the sun be darkened,
and the moon shall not give her light,
and the stars shall fall from heaven,
and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:
and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn,
and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet,
and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds,
from one end of heaven to the other.

"The Greek New Testament is the New Testament; all else is translation". A. T. Robertson


A few sites I ran across doing research. As with everything take these with a grain of salt. I haven't fully investigated these places but they offer some insight nonetheless.

Quote:
Revelation 13:12 "And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed."

Now we see the people worshipping the first beast. Is there evidence of people worshipping a city? Yes. The faithful turn toward Mecca at prayer time. They bow down on their faces in worship.

There have been many throughout history that have given allegiance to a particular city like Rome, Babylon, Sparta, Jerusalem, Memphis, Thebes, Thessalonica, Ephesus, and on and on the list could go. Allegiance is akin to worship. It is not a great step to take to worship the political system of antichrist.

http://www.bibleword.org/revelation12.htm

Quote:
Again, during the second half of the Tribulation--the forty-two months when the composite first beast of Revelation 13 is allowed to exercise authority received from the dragon (Rev 13:5)--all of humanity will have received the Holy Spirit. All will be spiritual Israelites. There will only be one faith: Christianity. And the saints will be divided between those who have accepted the mark of the beast (Chi xi stigma, or the tattoo of the Cross) and worship the beast, and those who refuse the tattoo and refuse to worship the beast. Those who refuse to worship the image of the beast will, likely, be slain (v. 15), especially if they are not inside the walls of spiritual Jerusalem, which has theological rather than geographical coordinates.

The prophecy pundits find in Islam the endtime boogie-man, but Islam today accepts Christ as a prophet. It will not be a far step for Muslims to accept the man of perdition as a genuine prophet, and for the entire faith to convert to Arian Christianity.

Islam presently has a recognizable flaw: there is no criteria by which a person can be certain of going to heaven other than dying in Jihad. A person can never be certain that he or she is good enough to go to heaven. As a result, the culture doesn’t admit blame. It can’t and still have any chance of being with Allah. So the Islamic belief paradigm needs the means of suspending the death penalty for sin for long enough that a person can mend his or her ways. The paradigm needs grace. And the man of perdition will, with charisma, explain to Islamic clerics why they must accept Arian Christianity to stop their young people from blowing themselves up--only the man of perdition can stop Islamic terrorism. And while wearing out Sabbath-keeping saints, this man of perdition will permanently put an end to terrorism. Remember, the whole world follows the beast, and worships the dragon and the beast and even the image of the beast. The world won’t worship the beast, or anyone else without cause. Hitler seemed like a German savior because he put an unemployed nation to work. The man of perdition will seem like a Christian savior for he will finally win the Crusades by bringing Christ to the 10-40 window.

What is P47?
Quote:
Two papyri finds that are of importance, as far as we are concerned, are the Chester Beatty Papyri and the Bodmer Papyri. The former, three manuscripts designated as P45 , P46 and P47, were named after the American millionaire, Alfred Chester Beatty who bought the fragments in 1931 in an Egyptian black market. P46, dated to the around 200 CE, contains the letters of Paul (but is missing some parts and is lacking completely in the pastorals, II Thessalonians and Philemon ). P45 and and P47, are both dated to the third century CE. The former consists of the gospels and Acts (beginning from Matthew 20:24 and ending at Acts 17:17 but with a lot of gaps) while the latter are fragments from the book of Revelation (Rev 9:10-17:2 with some gaps).


What is the Peshitta?
Quote:
The standard Bible of the Syrian Church is the Peshitta. The Peshitta, of which there are 350 extant manuscripts, contains 22 books of the New Testament but lacks II & III John, II Peter, Jude and Revelation-which the Syrian Church does not accept as canonical. Like the Vulgate, the Peshitta betrays the work of many hands (attempted corrections and revisions) and is of limited significance textually. Other Syriac versions include the Harklensis/Philoxeniana (Syrh), which may have some textual significance, and the Palestinian Syriac.



Manuscript Evidence for Disputed Verses
Quote:
Revelation 13:18

The RSV, LB and NASV have a marginal note to the effect that some manuscripts read 616, instead of 666.

Burgon (14) p 135-7, (32) p 110, 148, states that the authorities for the alternative reading consist only of uncial C, cursive 11 and one father, Tichonius (4th cent.). All other copies of Revelation and all versions support the reading "666," which is also confirmed by Irenaeus (170 AD), Origen and Hippolytus (each 3rd cent.), Eusebius (4th cent.), Victorinus (5th cent), Primasius (6th cent.) and Andreas (7th cent.) and Arethas (l0th cent.).

Papyri from Oxyrhynchus
Quote:
Among the more interesting readings found in these papyri, two are especially noteworthy. Ì106 (III century) reads oJ ejklektov" at John 1:34, in agreement with Ì5vid a* itb, e, ff2* syrs,c. Although the UBSGNT4 committee rejects this reading in favor of oJ uiJov" (giving the latter a B rating), that decision will surely have to be revisited in light of now clear Greek testimony from the third century1 for oJ ejklektov". As Head notes (11), “This early support in Greek, Latin and Syriac indicates a geographical diversity behind this reading.” Ì115 (III/IV century) is now apparently our earliest witness to the AC text of the Apocalypse. This MS includes twenty-six fragments of Revelation, covering portions of chapters 2 through 15. Not only is it an early witness to the AC text (the most important textual strand for the Apocalypse), but it also is the earliest witness to the reading “616” at Rev 13:18.

Other Links worth mentioning

The material offers important new evidence on a range of text-critical issues and three passages are discussed (Mt. 23:38; Jn. 1:34; Rev. 13:18).

hmm John knew hebrew also, let's do some research there also?


hebrew shin ~ sin

Quote:
The letter shin appears engraved on both sides of the head- tefilin. On the right side, the shin possesses three heads, while on the left side it possesses four heads. In Kabbalah we are taught that the three-headed shin is the shin of this world while the four- headed shin is the shin of the World to Come.

Quote:
The Letter Shin is easily distinguished by its three heads. The spacing of the Shin is something that takes practice for a Sofer to write correctly. The leftmost leg should have the head of a Zayin. (According to the Arizal,the left leg has the head of a Vov.) The head should have 3 Tagin on it, like a regular Zayin. The heads should not touch one another at all. Also, there should be no more than 3 heads in total, or the letter would be rendered invalid. The bottom should come to a point, and not be rounded or flat.

The Letter Shin is equal to 300. The Letter Tof is equal to 400. Basically, you would put the letters together to equal the number you are seeking e.g. - 22 would be CHOF-BEIS. However, if you wanted to write out the number fully, like when we write seventy one in English instead of 71, you would need to know the Hebrew words for seventy and one and put them next to one another. Finally, keep in mind that in Hebrew they also use the numbers 1234567890, and so even though they are not Hebrew characters, they are universally known and used by the name Arabic characters.

Quote:
In at-bash , the Name Havayah transforms to mem, tzadik, pei, tzadik, which equals 300, the letter shin . 300 also equals the highest "full spelling" of God's Name Elokim. This equality implies that "Havayah [supernatural revelation] is [absolutely one with] Elokim [natural order]." On the head--Tefilin are inscribed two shins, one with three heads and one with four heads. The three headed shin, the shin of this world, represents the "full spelling" of Elokim, while the four headed shin, the shin of the world to come, represents the at-bash transformation of Havayah.

Quote:
Remember, John was told to write what he saw. And I believe he did just that. I believe he wrote exactly what he "saw". I believe it is as simple and direct as that. I believe the scritpure (like most of the Bible) is literal. It just takes the right understanding to "see" it yourself.

He said they would wear the 666 on thier foreheads and right arms. But what did John see? Did he see "666" as we do today? No. We use Arabic numerals. In the Greek text it is represented by Greek words. Specifically: Chi Xi Stigma, or "Six-hundred, three-score and six".

So what John saw was something that looked like "Chi Xi Stigma", being worn on the foreheads and right arms of the multitude of the beast. It was also on the coinage, and everthing was done with "the mark of the beast" or "666". But what does "666" mean? Is it something we can look at today and say, "There it is!". It it something we can see? And the answer is, "yes you can".

The Greek letters Chi Xi Stigma also spell a phrase in another language. And that language is Arabic. The word it spells is Bismillah, which means (literally) "In the name of Allah".

It's a mulit-lingual pallendrome. It reads left-to-right (Greek) "Chi Xi Stigma" and right-to-left (Arabic) "Bismillah".

The Greek symbol for stigma (with the period because it's at the end of the verse. See: Codex Vaticanus) is exactly the same as the letter(s) that make the BSM sound in Bismillah. It looks like a bit like a capital G with a period in the middle. It's acutally the co-junction of two letters in Arabic, the B-sound and the SM-sound.

Next is Allah. Alla is spelled like the letter E laying on it's back with an extra small leg. The Greek text in the Codex V., has the extra (fourth) leg because it is hand written. If you tilt the letter about 90-degrees to the left (thus laying the E on it's back), it spells Allah in Arabic.

The Chi or "X" symbol, is commonly seen with the phrase Bismillah and represents the swords of Allah.

Now, go back and re-read that verse inserting bismillah in place of Chi Xi Stigma. It reads:

"Here is a riddle! Let him with understanding decide the multitude of the beast, for it is a multitude of people and is the same as (those), in the name of Allah"

Where do you see this today?

It is what is written on the green banners and green arm-bands that Muslims wear at the protests, rally, parades, dancing in the streets like on 9/11, etc.. It is also what the Martyrs for Islam wear on their heads and right arms when then blow themselves-up yelling "Alla Akbar", or "God is great".

It is on the new Muslim coinage. And everthing in Islam is done, "In the Name of Allah".

Islam is the beast!
"et is dead; a member of AboveTopSecret.com"; 666-where does it come from? http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread80914/pg1


Just because a group of people wish to play the beast doesnt make them the true beast, they could just be a copy of the Image χξϛ?


God Bless and Rejoice; for hour soon will come when all the (A-Z Beast ϛ) of the Earth shall be Judged!


But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,
lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ,
who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
