Revelation, John Chapter 13, 15-18
Text: And he was permitted also to impart the breath of life into the beast's image so that the statue of the beast could actually talk, and to cause to be put to death those who would not bow down and worship the image of the beast. (Dan. 3:5.) Also he compels all (alike), both small and great, both the rich and the poor, both free and slave to be marked with an inscription (stamped) on their right hands or on their foreheads. So that no one will have power to buy or sell unless he bears the stamp (mark, inscription), that is, the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is (room for) discernment - a call for the wisdom (of interpretation); let anyone who has intelligence (penetration and insight enough) calculate the number of the beast, for it is a human number - the number of a certain man; his number is six hundred and sixty six.

“In My name go ahead and write, I know what you are lacking; your prolonged eyes do not suffice for reaching far-distant things in order to see them; in case of semi-distant objects you only see the one-sided bark; but of the very near ones you do not see anything, as they are too close and therefore offer less interest. These verses of the Revelation are however within easy reach, yet you cannot grasp them: Indeed, the simpler a thing, the more stupid you behave; next time ask for that which seems easiest to understand. Verily, then you certainly will become more humble than by these super-easily understandable four verses, - therefore hearken:
In the beginning this chapter speaks of three beasts: Firstly the principal dragon, secondly the beast that arises from the sea with seven ten-horned heads, and thirdly a lamblike animal with two horns on its head.
You already know who the principal dragon is after I have told you so often and especially in the "Twelve Hours" of My arch-enemy:
