The church settled the meaning of the book of Revelation centuries ago. Sadly, this has been lost to the modern church.
This sermon series is an appeal to the church to recover that meaning.
Rev. 13:18 says understanding (or wisdom) is required to 'count' the meaning of the number of the beast, 666. This is clearly not the human wisdom of this world, which God calls foolishness. I Cor. 3:19: “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.” This is the problem with many of the claims you've heard about the meaning of 666 and the identity of Antichrist. What the Lord requires is not human wisdom, falsely called, but the wisdom that comes from reading and meditating upon the revelation of God through His written Word, the Bible, and living your life in obedience to it.
This sermon presents the interpretation of 666 that was held by the majority of Protestant theologians from the Reformation until the 1800s when mysticism on the one hand and liberalism on the other began to invade the church. This historic interpretation of the number of the beast has also been held by some proto-reformers (before the Protestant Reformation) and even by some of the church fathers going back to the second century -- and possibly even before!
