The general idea of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 666, is exactly the prophetic expression of Revelation 13:18 that shows the image of the wild beast would have the “authority” by mean the prophet to decide who could “buy and sell”
This number 666 mentioned in the prophecy of Revelation 13:16-18, is an extremely precise landmark in the chronology of events, in order to know the moment when the destruction of Babylon the
Great begins and the period mentioned by Jesus Christ in Matthew 24:29. This number 666 allows us to know when Jehovah God put in the heart of the image of the wild beast, the idea of starting to destroy Babylon the Great (This process is explained after):
“It puts under compulsion all people—the small and the great, the rich and the poor, the free and the slaves—that these should be marked on their right hand or on their forehead,
and that nobody can buy or sell except a person having the mark, the name of the wild beast or the number of its name. This is where it calls for wisdom: Let the one who has insight calculate the number of the wild beast, for it is a man’s number, and
its number is 666” (Revelation 13:16-18).
Before knowing the important idea of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 666, it is interesting to know that this Resolution
666 has been elaborated within a series of 12 United Nations Security Council Resolutions that would result in the “fall of Babylon the Great” and the beginning of the destruction of it: “Babylon” that is Iraq (United Nations
Security Council Resolutions 660, 661, 662, 664, 665, 666, 667, 669, 670, 674, 677, 678). The general idea of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 666, is exactly the prophetic expression of Revelation 13:18 that shows the image of the wild beast
would have the “authority” by mean the prophet to decide who could “buy and sell”...
The United Nations Security Council Resolution 666 (extract): “United
Nations Security Council Resolution 666, adopted on September 13, 1990, after recalling resolutions 661 (1990) and 664 (1990) which discussed the humanitarian situation in Iraq and Kuwait and the detention of nationals from foreign countries, the Council decided
to ask the Security Council Committee to determine if humanitarian needs have arisen and to keep the situation under review. At the same time, it expected Iraq to comply with its obligations under international law, including the Fourth Geneva Convention,
relating to the safety and detainment of third-state nationals in Iraq and occupied Kuwait” (Wikipedia United Nations Security Council Resolution 666).
If we compare the terms
of this resolution 666 (including the resolution 661), with Revelation 13: 16-18, the similarity is striking because the prophecy evokes an "embargo" against those who do not have the "mark" of the wild beast or does not respect the human sovereignty in its
nationalist and patriotic dimension.
It is the UN Resolution 678 (November 29, 1990), which will authorize the military coalition of 33 countries, to destroy by massive bombardments,
Iraq, the place of origin of Babylon the Great, the city which was the cradle false worship, by the first Gulf War (Desert Storm (January 17, 1991 - February 28, 1991)). It was the beginning, as an epicenter, of the destruction of Babylon the Great, until
God considered this prophecy to be fully fulfilled, just before the Great Tribulation (Revelation 17, 18 and 19: 1-3). This massive destruction is the confirmation that the wild beast is not a "political" entity, but rather a military entity that causes havoc,
like a "wild" beast that hurts and kills (Revelation 17:15-18). This similarity is a prophetic landmark that allows us to understand that this first of the Golf War against Iraq, the ancient cradle of Babylon the Great, is the starting point for the general
destruction of Satan's sovereignty on earth. Babylon the Great is the global symbol of this earthly sovereignty.
The interesting point is this: while Satan the devil created the "image
of the beast" with the purpose to fight against the integrity of the Holy Ones (Revelation 20:4), Jehovah God used this same "image of the beast", through his number 666, to fight against Babylon the Great. In the context of Revelation chapter 13, these sanctions,
against those who do not have the mark of the wild beast, were to apply to the "holy ones", the true worshipers (See Revelation 13:7,8). But by combining Revelation 13 with chapter 17: 16-18, God made Satan and his system fall into the hole that they themselves
had dug. God put in the heart of the image of the wild beast to destroy the capital of false worship, by initiating at the same time a process of general self-destruction of the whole of human sovereignty on earth: "With the pure you show yourself pure, But
with the crooked you show yourself shrewd" (Psalms 18:26).
"The Dream of Saddam Hussein"
To better demonstrate the very close correlation between the prophecy of Revelation on the Number 666 and the destruction of Babylon the Great, in light of the intentions of the former dictator Saddam Hussein, former president (deceased) of Iraq (Babylon),
just before this war. Before 1991, the "Dream of Saddam Hussein" was to create a new Caliphate of Baghdad that he tried to symbolize by the reconstruction of Babylon (Iraq) and would federate all the Muslim Nations of the Middle East. DAESH, tried and continue,
currently, to do so: “In the Iraqi propaganda, the references to the Babylonian empire, which stretched almost all the way to the Middle East, merge with those, much more numerous, relating to an another empire, that of the Abbasids prevailing in the
early days of Islam, on an Arab world expanding. Recreate the power of the Caliphate of Baghdad is part of the dream of Saddam Hussein” (Translated in English from French language “Le Monde International 17/04/2003”).
However, the beginning of the fulfillment of this prophecy in Iraq, would have and currently has repercussions, throughout the Middle East and the whole world, by the various religious attacks. This article clearly
shows that since the first Gulf War, there has been an accentuation of a world war under the aspect of a crusade orchestrated by the western militarized "Christian" nations, but also of the Judaic militarized Zionists, against Muslim fighters who have declared
a "Jihad" or holy war against the (Western) infidels, whose main objective is to multiply the Caliphates according to their conquests. However, it was the Islamic (Shiite), Iranian revolution in 1979, at the time of the Cold War, which really sparked off the
various Jihad (Sunni and Shiite) that are currently continuing. Their first objective was, to fight against the communism, particularly in Afghanistan. After 1991, after the fall of the Soviet Union, the jihads turned against the Westerners (who had armed
them in Afghanistan), by territorial wars (In the Caucasus (Chechnya), the former Yugoslavia and DAESH (Syria / Iraq)), and sponsored and disseminated attacks all over the world (mainly by means of Internet social networks (sponsored by several networks of
Al Qaeda around the world (with different names))).
DAESH, (ISIL (Islamic State in IRAQ and the Levant)) (an Islamic paramilitary group (Sunni), which fights the Western military powers
in the Middle East), has taken over this political and religious objective of the establishment of a Caliphate with the establishment of the Sharia with a Jihad by territorial conquest: "Recreating the power of the Caliphate (Sunni)" by destroying all the
borders in the Middle East, created by the Western nations, particularly by the British and French in order to unify the Arab Muslim world into a single united nation, as a Caliphate. Other paramilitary religious movements have followed suit with this Islamic
group (See the Diplomatic World "The main Sunni Islamist armed groups", Article by Cécile Marin, February 2015). The "Arab Spring" (January 2011), which is in fact an Arab "revolution" in all the states around the Mediterranean, was successfully recovered
for a time by the "Muslim brothers" in Egypt. However, this government experience was cut short because of an armed coup. If Western media propaganda proclaims a territorial victory over DAESH (in Syria and Iraq), the conflict continues in other geographical
locations, and through inspired or sponsored attacks on social networks.
In the context of this international politico-religious conflict, the end of the prophecy of Daniel chapter 11
and the beginning of chapter 12, indicates that it is in the Middle East that we must take a special attention of the biblical prophecies fulfillment which announce the end of this system of things by a great tribulation. We must take a special attention on
present-day Israel, present-day Jerusalem, Syria / Lebanon (in the north) and Iraq / Iran, in the east (Daniel 11:44-45 at 12:1).
These three major religious branches, "militarized Christian
Zionist", "Judaic Zionist" and Muslim jihadists, who wage war and destroy each other, are "messianic". These three worldwide religions think they have the assent of King Jesus Christ who will soon judge the humankind during the great tribulation (Matthew 25:
31-46). However, here is what is written in the Revelation: "These will battle with the Lamb, but because he is Lord of lords and King of kings, the Lamb will conquer them. Also, those with him who are called and chosen and faithful will do so" (Revelation
17:14). The fact that they attack the unarmed and peaceful "holy ones", is an act of war against the lamb. This attack against the holy ones is to be put into perspective with the prophecy of Gog the Magog's attack against the people that God is currently
constituting and who will come out of the great tribulation (Ezekiel 38: 1-16; Malachi 3: 16-18 (God is constituting his people); Revelation 7: 9-17 The great crowd that will survive the great tribulation).
We are currently, still in the context of the fulfillment, prophetically mentioned in the Revelation, of the worldwide destruction of Babylon the Great, to be compared with the period mentioned in Matthew 24:29. When exactly did it
start? The most logical is the date of March 6, 1991, during his State of the Union Speech, presented by President Georges Bush (Father), in the form of a celebration of this victory over Iraq, the biblical symbol of the cradle of rival worship, Babylon. He
inaugurated what he called the "New World Order", which he believed to be peace and security.
March 6, 1991 represents exactly the middle of the 77th year of the reign of King Jesus
Christ started on October 4/5 (15 Tishri) 1914 (Revelation 12:10). The fact that God let the nations show their wrath against the heavenly enthronement of His Son Jesus Christ for 77 years, shows that He is fully slow to anger and abundant in mercy: "Jehovah
was passing before him and declaring: “Jehovah, Jehovah, a God merciful and compassionate, slow to anger and abundant in loyal love and truth" (Exodus 34: 6, comparing with the number of times said by Jesus Christ to forgive our neighbor: "77 times"
; Matthew 18: 22; Psalms 2) (PEACE AND SECURITY).
