Are you afraid that the devils are after you and that something bad will happen in your life? Don’t panic, because not everything is so scary and negative!
The opinion and conspiracy theories that the number 666 is associated with devils, secret organizations, the Illuminati, occultism and the like have been widely accepted in society.
That’s why we feel anxious when we see three sixes in a row as clock times on license plates, billboards, invoices, etc., because the number of the devil can’t bring anything good, right?
However, the mysterious number 666 has many interpretations and meanings, just like the angel numbers 555, 444 and the like.
Since 666 is associated with devils, we will first dive into history to get a bigger picture and context for this interpretation.
In the Bible, the number 666 is mentioned in the Revelation of John in the New Testament:
“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding compute the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is six hundred three and six.”
In this context, the beast is associated with the Antichrist, the antagonist of Jesus Christ and Christianity.
There are various conspiracy theories about who the Antichrist could be, such as those of Napoleon Bonaparte, Hitler and Osama bin Laden.
Some prophecies believe that antichrists will appear in the form of people, organizations, government movements and the like.
What is interesting about this Bible quote is precisely this interpretation of 666 in connection with the “beast.”
Here, researchers rely on gematria, i.e., assigning a numerical value to each letter.
What does that mean?
It means that numbers are written instead of letters.
For example, a numerical value is added to the letters of the Greek alphabet, so alpha becomes 1, beta becomes two and so on.
Then all these numerical values can be multiplied, and we get a sum of digits that can be interpreted in different ways, and in this case, the number 666 is part of the number puzzle that needs to be deciphered.
Although it seems easy to assign a letter to a number and work out roughly what word it might contain, it is a little more complicated as there are many solutions.
So, who is 666, and what name is behind it?
Researchers and historians agree that it would be much easier to find out who is behind 666 if they knew the exact period in which the Revelation of John was written.
One of the interpretations suggests that it was an emperor at the time:
“A beast came up out of the sea with ten horns and seven heads. And the dragon had given him his authority, his throne and all his power.” (Rev 13.1)
When we connect the throne and power, it is clear that it is referring to a ruler, and in this case, it could refer to the Roman emperors, as they were not very friendly to Christianity then.
‘… the dragon had given him his power’ in this case is associated with Satan himself – so it is a ruler who was the Antichrist.
It has long been thought that this ruler could be Emperor Nero, as he persecuted Christians. However, it is believed that he was already dead when the Book of Revelation was written, but some theories claim that he did not die but would return as Nero Redivivus.
In addition to the emperor Nero, ‘animals’ included the emperors Hadrian and Domitian. Recently, researchers using computers have discovered that it may be Emperor Trajan, who was in power in 98–117 AD.
As further concrete evidence that the Revelation of John dates from Trajan’s time, they cite an example in which the city of Pergamum is also called the “seat of Satan” in the text.
According to biblical origins, it is clear why 666 is also called the devil’s number and is associated with evil. Still, the meaning of 666 does not only have to be interpreted through the Bible.
The number 666 is also one of the angelic numbers and has a different meaning in numerology. Just as we interpret the angelic numbers 333, 777 and 999, we can also regard 666 as an angelic number.
When certain situations happen to us in life, when we are at a crossroads or are overwhelmed by these problems, we look for answers, explanations and clues to guide us on how to proceed.
Then we turn to the horoscope, for example, and ask ourselves what our star sign tells us. Will we soon meet a new love, make a new friendship, get ahead professionally and the like?
We constantly look for signs that tell us whether we are on the right path.
And that’s when it happens.
Maybe we don’t understand their message at first and don’t attach any meaning to them, but when they are repeated several times, we stop and ask ourselves, Is this the sign I’m looking for?
Are these numbers a message I need to follow?
And what do they mean anyway?
If you look into the number 666, don’t think you are doing something wrong or on the wrong path just because this number is usually associated with something negative.
Quite the opposite!
The number 666 has positive vibrations, and your guardian angels tell you they are there to support you but that the time has come for you to sort out your thoughts.
With the number 666, the angels tell you that you need to harmonize your spiritual wealth with your material wealth.
What does that mean?
In this day and age of chaos, stress and hectic life, we are all chasing after material wealth.
Most of us want to live in a lovely apartment or house, drive a good car, have enough money to buy something nice and travel without thinking about how much we will spend.
So we dedicate ourselves to education, the job, and working on ourselves to achieve as much and quickly as possible, and we have no time for ourselves.
It’s okay up to a point until it doesn’t throw us into worry, addiction and anxiety. When that happens, we need to put on the brakes, stop and look at our lives as a whole.
We must ask ourselves what gives our lives meaning, and where are these true values that fulfill us and make us happy?
It is precisely in those moments when your fears, nervousness and worries about material things begin to dominate your life that your guardian angels appear and tell you:
Hey you, look here! Stop! Pay attention to what is worthwhile and change your focus!
Excessive concern for material things and wealth leads you away from what fulfills you and makes you happy, even if you may not know it.
The number 666 tells you you need to nourish your soul and heart.
You need to be open to love, friendship, humanity, charity, family, inner values, charity and spirituality that will make your soul blossom again and bring harmony into your life.
You should make a boundary and distinction between the material and the spiritual and enrich yourself not by earning money but by enriching your inner values.
You can do this by focusing more on your family and family values. Spend the days with the special people in your life and find time for each of them, whether going for a walk, helping with the move, going on outings together, whatever.
Dedicate yourself to love.
Maybe there is a person in your life who enriches you more than all the money and values in the world; you just haven’t recognized them yet because your focus is on other things.
Open your heart to love.
If you are in a relationship or marriage, give your partner your time and attention, tell them you love them, and do something good for them.
You can also try volunteering. You will feel as good as if you are helping others who need it the most.
Sign up for a charity race, join a charity organization, volunteer at a nursing home or soup kitchen, and donate money to those who most need it.
In these moments, you will feel fulfilled and find the inner happiness and peace you never imagined because you know you are doing something good.
Life will give you that back, and you will be much happier.
The 666 meaning also generally indicates that your thoughts have drifted apart, and you must sort them out.
Negative thoughts you create in your head negatively influence your life and all its areas, from love to work to friendship.
Worry drags us down and blinds us to all the beautiful moments in life that pass us by, and your angels know this, which is why they are telling you to relax with the number 666.
Don’t worry so much or rack your brains with negative thoughts because your angels are there. They listen to you and follow your wishes.
When you free yourself from the shackles of fear and worry, you will feel as if you have gained wings and as if you have been holding your breath for a long time, so only now can you breathe a sigh of relief.
Our guardian angels want us to live a happy and balanced life, and the meaning of the number 666 tells you that perhaps some parts of your life are out of balance and it’s time to bring them back into alignment.
Maybe you’re stuck in a toxic relationship or a toxic workplace. And all of this makes you anxious and worried.
If you know this is the case, you need to make a change and don’t worry; your angels are there for you and will bring you something better.
Dedicate yourself to yourself and your spirituality and dedicate yourself to charity to recognize true values and the meaning of life.
Free yourself from negative thoughts and fears and turn to positivism and optimism, and soon, you will realize how much harmony and peace there is in your mind and body and even in your life.
The number 6 can also appear in the form of 66 or 6666 and convey other messages from the angels! Let’s see what the number 666 means in Chinese culture!

Further proof that 666 is not the scariest number of all time comes to us from China.
In contrast to Western culture, where this number is immediately associated with the devil, 666 stands for luck and profit in China.
The pronunciation of the number 6 in Chinese sounds like “liu,” which is equivalent to the words “flow” (liú) or “smoothly, smoothly, calmly” (liū).
We can, therefore, assume that the number 6 means that everything will run smoothly, and the triple number 6 means that we have no reason to worry because good luck and good things await us.
The number 666 is also used in youth language when expressing admiration for someone or something.
See, it’s not so bad, is it??
Bottom line: despite being considered the most notorious number to see, 666 can be interpreted in various ways and radiates good vibes and positive messages. However, this can be a little difficult to understand at first.
The historical Christian interpretation of the number 666 through its association with the devil has become very well-established in our culture, making it hard for us to believe that there can be anything good hidden behind it.
However, if we turn to the positive side of the number 666, we see that our angels are there and want to show us with this number that we need to bring our lives back into balance because only we have the power to change our lives.
The guardian angels are telling us to devote ourselves more to inner values and spirituality and enrich our hearts and souls, not just our wallets.
It’s certainly something we need to think about, even without seeing the number 666, but luckily, our angels are there to remind us when we stray a little from the right path.
