In a News article entitled “Pope Francis rejects donation from Argentinian president with 666 in sum” we are informed that Pope Francis rejected a charitable donation from president Mauricio Macri – at least partly – because the sum included the figure 666.
This rejection by Pope Francis in not receiving the donation from Argentinian president because the sum included the figure 666 is a show and hypocrisy to make the world believe that he has a dislike with the number 666 and to make the world believe that he wants nothing to do with that number.
Now why would Pope Francis react like this? Maybe the truth is that he is trying to disassociate himself with the true historic understanding of the prophecy in Revelation 13:18
“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.” (Revelation 13:18).
The true historic position and understanding of this biblical text is that this beast or religious and political world power in this verse refers to the papacy as the antichrist power. The word of God tells us: here is wisdom, here is true understanding – whoever is a smart student of the prophecy let him count the number of the beast, the papacy.
Yes friends the papacy has a number and God tells us in His word and that number of Six hundred threescore and six comes from the Latin title Vicarius Filii Dei (Vicar of Christ) given as the official title to the popes in history from the Roman Catholic Church herself.
The Roman Catholic Church herself testifies to this title of the Popes’ – Vicarius Filii Dei.
In Prompta Bibliotheca Canonica (library of canon law 1746) we get an article entitled “Papa.” In that article the highly respected Catholic canonist Lucio Ferraris (1687-1763) gives the title Vicarius Filii Dei to the pope. (Modern Bologan Italy privately printed 1746 Vol 6 art 2 par. 20 Papa).
In 1689, French Jesuits Phillippe Labbe (1607-1667) and Gabriel Cossart collaborated on the historical work Sacrosancta Concilia ad Regiam Editionem Exacta 16 vols, in which they used Vicarius Filii Dei as the official Pope’s title. This official title comes out to the numerical value of 666.
It is very clear and evident that this number refers to the papacy alone whose chief claim is to be the Vicar (representative) of Christ. That is the official role of the pope to be the Vicar of Christ, the Son of God here on earth. In Latin, the official language of the Papacy, this title is translated as “Vicarius Filii Dei” and the numerical value from the Roman numeral system calculates to 666.

It is now time to wake up and realize the dangerous times we are living in and how the Prophecy of Revelation 13 will soon be fulfilled. Let us now take the stand for truth and proclaim it. May God help us.
