'Sell everything!' Dire warning from Royal Bank of Scotland as fears mount that markets are set for new crash and oil could plunge to $10 a barrel.
JE-sus is so good to us! HE is making the gas prices go VERY low during these last few weeks to help us to get our supplies for the Great Tribulation. With gas being so cheap, NOW is the time to buy other supplies! As soon as the first huge event happens, gasoline prices will go through the ceiling and we will not be able to find any supplies! Sell everything that you can sell and buy what you need! Even Jesus said to sell and buy! But the dagger was not to use against people. Only for fish, rope, and the appearance of defense.

First, it's important to understand that numbers as we see them today, 0123456789, did NOT exist 2,000 years ago when John wrote the Book of Revelation. The numbers we use today are called "Hindu Arabic Numbers". They were first invented by the Hindu's in India. Then they were adopted by the Muslim Arabs, and then the Catholic Church and Europe. All of this is well documented history. Each time that they moved to another group of people, and over time, the numbers changed in appearance. In John's lifetime, the Hindu numbers were used only in India (and perhaps China) and looked MUCH different than they do today. During John's lifetime, in Israel and the Roman Empire, they would write numbers four possible ways.
1. Write them out with complete words. ALL of the numbers in the Scriptures were originally written with complete words, such as when John wrote"hexakosioi" for six hundred in Rev.14:20. He wrote "hexekonta" for sixty in Rev.11:3 and 12:6. He wrote "hex" for six in Rev.4.
Yet in Rev.13:18 for "666" he did NOT write complete words.
2. They used Roman Numerals. The Roman Numerals for 666 would be DCLXVI. This is NOT what John wrote in Rev.13:18.
3. They would use "Hebrew Numerals" which were ancient Assyrian Aramaic letters and each letter represented a number, similar to the Roman system, but using a different language. This is NOT what John wrote in the Scriptures.
4. Greek numerals. Similar to the Hebrew Numerals except using the Greek letters. This is what most people claim that John wrote. However, that's impossible and this is why:
In his lifetime, the Hindu numbers, used only in India at that time, for 666 would look something similar to three fours (see Source on the website, link above, Look at first century AD picture). If he saw the modern Hindu Arabic "666" OR the ancient Hindu numbers "444", he would not recognize it as numbers. He would not know what he was seeing or how to translate it into his Greek, Aramaic or Roman. If he had seen "666", the only way that he could write it would be to just copy it down the way that he saw it, thus he would have written the modern number "666". Yet he did NOT do that. He did not write "666" with Hindu-Arabic numbers, the way they look today, NOR how they were written in India in his lifetime.
John was having a vision of the end times, OUR time. Why would John write 666 with three ancient Greek letters?, when in these end times, the time he was seeing in the vision, we are using a modern European form of the Hindu-Arabic numbers.
