Summary: We are in the end-time, prophesied in the Word of God.The wisdom here is all about the number of the beast which people do refer to number 666, according to the word of God. This number captures attention anywhere seen or mentioned.
If you are following us for the first time, I'm telling you to sit tight and listen to the word from God.It's a moment you will never ever forget in your life.

The subject is "HERE IS WISDOM"
The Book of Revelation chapter 13 verses 11 to 18
Revelation 13 verses 11 to 18
“ And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like unto a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the authority of the first beast in his sight. And he maketh the earth and them that dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose death-stroke was healed. And he doeth great signs, that he should even make fire to come down out of heaven upon the earth in the sight of men. And he deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by reason of the signs which it was given him to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast who hath the stroke of the sword and lived. And it was given unto him to give breath to it, even to the image to the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as should not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, that there be given them a mark on their right hand, or upon their forehead; and that no man should be able to buy or to sell, save he that hath the mark, even the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man: and his number is Six hundred and sixty and six”
In one of our previous editions- I think, when we preached on the Mark of the Beast, we explained vital issues about the book of Revelation and its author. So, we are not going back to those issues again. You may get the message about the mark of the world government.
Now, we are looking at the topic, " Here is Wisdom" Our emphasis should be on verse no 18.
“Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man: and his number is Six hundred and sixty and six”
The word of God is talking about wisdom. And you know, there is a difference between knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge is an information or acquired skill while wisdom is knowledge of the information applied. So, there is a great wisdom for you, to capture now.The wisdom here is all about the number of the beast which people do refer to number 666, according to the word of God. This number captures attention anywhere seen or mentioned. Even my little kid at home knows this number. It is too popular. A man was issued a new plate number for his vehicle and the number reads 666, the man refused to take it. We have many cases like that. Which means, many people are aware of this number and always avoiding it like a plaque. While some are aware of it, others are ignorant of it. Anyway, no one should be blamed because many things surrounding it are concealed now and to be revealed later.
But let me say here, in as much as the teaching of the end time is concerned, we have the name of the beast, the mark of the beast and then the number. Some people are focusing on one only- probably the number, which seems popular. But may the Holy Spirit give us direction tonight to capture this wisdom. We have many things to look into now. God please help us!
