The Holy Bible predicts the future before it happens, telling of a time when a beast will rule the earth. The world will worship this beast while those faithful to the Lord will not. The bible gives some clues that point to a specific man used by Satan to deceive the world.
One of those clues is the number 666. That is the number of the beast. (Revelation 13:18)
The book of Ezra associates this number with Adonikam. (Ezrah 2:13)
Adonikam means “lord of rising”. When you think of rising, what does that mean to you? The rising sun?
First mention of “rising” in New Testament:
And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
Obama’s presidential campaign logo: rising sun.
Title of Barack Obama’s biography in 2017 after his presidency: Rising Star. Will he continue to rise even though his presidency is over? He could become the leader of the entire world for 42 months, the time the Lord Jesus will allow the beast to rule.
Nehemiah 7:18 seems to contradict Ezrah 2:13, saying Adonikam had 667 children. One of Adonikam’s children appears to exist in the record of Nehemiah, but is missing from the record of Ezrah. One of the children of Adonikam exists and yet does not exist. The book of Revelation says the same of the beast.
The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
Of the 667 children of Adonikam, if one is not, you would remove one from that total and be left with 666, which is the number of the beast.
In Nehemiah 4:21, rising in Hebrew sounds like the god of Islam: “alah”. So the lord of rising could be the lord of “alah”.
Jesus is the Lord and the Son of God.
The beast would be his enemy: the lord of this world and the son of perdition. Perhaps he is the son of Allah, which is one of the many names for Satan.
The first mention of “rising” in the Old Testament refers to the rising of a disease, a stroke, a plague spot, a sore, a tumor, or a mark.
When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab, or bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like the plague of leprosy; then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests:
And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh: and when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in sight be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy: and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.
And the beast wants to infect all mankind with a mark: the mark of the beast. Flee from sin, stay faithful to Jesus, and the Lord shall save you.
