"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 number '666' is the number of man - for man was created on the 6th day. It carries the significance of six in its most intensified form. This is number of the "Beast" . The number '666' is also used in connection with Gold. (1 Kings 10:14).
Thirty six is a product of 6*6. If we add up all digits from 1 to 36, we have a total of 666.

Rome was ruling at the first coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The same Roman Government characteristics will be seen at the second coming of Jesus Christ. Of course, this time the great 'Cesar' the Roman emperor, will be the 'Antichrist' !
From the creation of Adam until the birth of Christ
Adam was created
.. 4000 B.C
Birth of Christ ..4 B.C
Intervening years ... .. 3996
......................3996= 666 * 6
There were six sets of 666 years from Adam to the birth of Christ and this also proves that our Lord Jesus was not born on A.D 1 but on B.C 4. God ordained Christ to appear 'in the fullness of time'.
