666 Meaning in the Bible

Angel number 666 is spiritually significant because the number 6 is repeated 3 times.

In the Bible the number 6 is often connected with imperfection but can have a deeper spiritual meaning as well. If you are seeing this number often, it tells me that you are currently going through a strange time in your life.

Seeing 666 may appear in response to your thoughts or prayers, so pay close attention each time you see this number.

Although some people believe seeing 666 is a bad sign, your guardian angel may just be using this number to get your attention and send you an important message.

Meaning of Angel Number 6:

Angel number 6 is a symbol of mankind's imperfection and sin in the bible. On the sixth day of creation God made man in his own image (Genesis 1:26). Then, in Genesis 6:6, God repents for creating man because they are only filled with evil and corrupt thoughts. The number 6 will always be a reminder that Christ died to forgive our sins.

The number 6 is very symbolic of our unique relationship with God. While God made man in His image, mankind will never be perfect.

So, why is 666 a bad number?

The number 666 is often associated with the Book of Revelation which mentions that it is the “number of a man” and the mark of the beast. Researchers have come to the conclusion that this man was the Roman Emperor Nero.

However, today many people believe 666 is the number of the devil or satan.

Revelation 13:15-18 KJV

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 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: 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. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Now you might be wondering, what does it mean when you see 666?

From my research, I believe there are 3 possible messages your guardian angel is sending you when you see the number 666.

Here’s what your guardian angel might be trying to tell you:

You Are About to Have a Spiritual Experience

When you see angel number 666 this is a message from your guardian angel that you will soon go through a spiritual transformation.

Something recently happened in your life that has put you back on a spiritual path. You are open to the idea of letting God guide you in the right direction.

Seeing angel number 666 was a wake up call. What you’ve been trying to accomplish on your own has not been working as you had hoped. Now, it’s time to ask for help from above.

During this time of transition, you may start to see angel numbers more frequently and be more in tune with God’s presence in your life.

You will soon find out that the true meaning of 666 is actually a positive sign. From now on, it will be a reminder that even though you have made mistakes in the past, God will always be there to forgive your sins if you put your trust in Him.

Your Financial Mistakes Will Be Forgiven

According to scripture, God sends angels to deliver messages in response to your thoughts and prayers (Luke 1:19).

In Matthew 6:12 Jesus teaches us to pray for God to “forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.” This simple prayer is a reminder that if we want God to forgive our debts or sins, we must be willing to forgive the people in our lives that have caused us pain.

Angel number 666 may appear if you have been thinking about the past and wondering if you are on the right path. You have had to pass on many opportunities over the last few years because you refused to take advantage of others. Now, you wonder what your life might have been like if you had made different choices.

When you see angel number 666, God is sending a message that your debts will be forgiven if you forgive the debts of others first.

Be Content With What You Have

Scripture says we cannot serve two masters. You cannot serve God and money (Matthew 6:24).

Seeing 666 could be a message from your guardian angel about your desires for wealth. This message usually appears if you have been thinking about how your life might change if you lived in a different place or drove a different car.

You know deep in your heart that money won’t buy happiness, but it still might be nice to have a little extra at the end of the month. You work hard, but no matter how hard you try it seems impossible to get ahead.

Lately you’ve been thinking about a certain person in your life that does not work as hard as you do, yet receives more of God’s blessings. Angel number 666 is a message from God that He sees your hard work and will always be by your side.

When you see the “devils number” avoid any temptation to take shortcuts to get ahead financially. Your reward will be waiting for you in heaven.

Hebrews 13:5 says “Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’”

Angel number 666 is a simple reminder to be content with what you have.
