The weight of the gold that Solomon received yearly was 666 talents
1 Kings 10:14 (NIV)




Introduction

The first two appearances of the number 666 within Scripture are 1 Kings 10:14 and 2 Chronicles 9:13. Here the number is linked with King Solomon and gold, the lust for which has always brought out man’s beastly nature. Solomon was famous for his wisdom as well as his riches, but, as encoded numbers attest, neither money nor wordly wisdom are enough to save us.



Solomon’s Gold

1 Kings 10 and 2 Chronicles 9 are two versions of the same story, an account of the visit of the Queen of Sheba to Solomon and some details of his riches, including his annual tribute in gold.

In both cases the verse in which the number 666 appears is the one giving his annual tribute, which is 666 talents. They that identical in wording and are shown below.

1 Kings 10:14 (NIV)
14. The weight of the gold that Solomon received yearly was 666 talents,

1 Kings 10:14 (o) .....= 658


2 Chronicles 9:13 (NIV)
13. The weight of the gold that Solomon received yearly was 666 talents,


2 Chronicles 9:13 (o) = 658


These sum to a number that is the standard value of these momentous words:


658 + 658 ...........................................= 1316
Jesus Christ + Second Coming (s) = 1316


The number 658 is encoded elsewhere, within the context of the Crucifixion being the event that superceded the Day of Atonement for Christians. As I show, 9/11 represented both the Crucifixion and the Day of Atonement.

Let’s now look at the gematria of the first passage in the NIV Bible to use 666.

1 Kings 10:14-15
14The weight of the gold that Solomon received yearly was 666 talents, 15not including the revenues from merchants and traders and from all the Arabian kings and the governors of the land.

Note that 666 is the 11th word. The first 18 (6 + 6 + 6) words of these verses proclaim the Second Advent.

1 Kings 10:14-15
14The weight of the gold that Solomon received yearly was 666 talents, 15not including the revenues from merchants and traders and from all the Arabian kings and the governors of the land.

1st 18 words 1 Kings 10:14-15 (o) = 1095
The Second Advent (s) .................= 1095


Here, the Second Coming is linked with eighteen, an alternative way of expressing three sixes.



The Queen of Sheba’s Gifts

In each chapter the number 666 is preceeded a few verses beforehand by another number, 120, which is the weight of gold given to Solomon by the Queen of Sheba.

1 Kings 10:10 and 10:14 (NIV)
10. And she gave the king 120 talents of gold, large quantities of spices, and precious stones. Never again were so many spices brought in as those the queen of Sheba gave to King Solomon.

14. The weight of the gold that Solomon received yearly was 666 talents,


120 + 666 .....= 786
The devil (c) = 786


Here is the version in 2 Chronicles.

2 Chronicles 9:9 and 9:13 (NIV)
9. Then she gave the king 120 talents of gold, large quantities of spices, and precious stones. There had never been such spices as those the queen of Sheba gave to King Solomon.

13. The weight of the gold that Solomon received yearly was 666 talents,


120 + 666 ....= 786
The devil (c) = 786


So we are being told here that Solomon’s obvious lust for gold was diabolical! However, another event is also being linked to the diabolical.



Combining the Verses

In both passages, the chapter and verse indicators imply numbers which sum to a multiple of 11. First of all we have 1 Kings 10:10 and 1 Kings 10:14, which give 1010 and 1014.

1010 + 1014 = 2024 = 11 x 184

Next we have 2 Chronicles 9:9 and 2 Chronicles 9:13, which imply 99 and 913. These are both multiples of 11 in their own right, and also sum to a multiple of 11.

99 + 913 = 1012 = 11 x 92


The number 1012 is half of the first sum, 2024 (as well as being a numerical anagram of 121, the ordinal value of ‘Second Coming’), and is the standard value of the event watermarked with the number 11.

September + Eleven (s) = 1012


Summing all the chapter and verse numbers we of course obtain another multple of 11.

2024 + 1012 = 3036 = 11 x 276


According to Bullinger, 276 is the number most associated with Satan, and here it is also being associated with 9/11, along with the key number 11.



Solomon’s Wisdom

King Solomon was famous for his wisdom, the entire book of Proverbs being attributed to him (in the Hebrew Bible this book is called The Wisdom of Solomon). Another book attributed to Solomon was Ecclesiastes, the seventh chapter of which contains his writings on the subject of wisdom. We saw above one connection between Solomon and 666 through his annual revenues. We also know that wisdom is specifically associated with the number 666 in Revelation 13:18. Counting, now, from the beginning of the Bible we find that the Bible’s 666th chapter is Ecclesiastes 7!

Analysing the first verse of that chapter, we find that the first six words have an ordinal value of six cubed.

Ecclesiastes 7:1 (NIV)
1. A good name is better than fine perfume, and the day of death better than the day of birth.

1st 6 words Eccl. 7:1 (o) = 216 = 6 x 6 x 6.


The entire, world-weary verse has an o.v. of 729, which is nine cubed, nine being the number of endings, finality, judgment, fruits and suffering. Perhaps Solomon felt the judgment of God upon him when he wrote those words.



Summary

These encodings bring together several ideas, most of which are found in the previous page: money, wisdom, the devil, 9/11 and the Second Coming.

The love of money, the Bible tells us, “...is a root of all kinds of evil.” (1 Tim. 6:10). Given that the World Trade Centre was a global financial and trading centre, we could reasonably infer, therefore, that the economic system we call global capitalism, of which the twin towers were such potent symbols, does not meet with the approval of a Higher Power and the towers were destroyed as an indication of this Divine disapproval - another facet of this multisymbolic event.

Wisdom is certainly useful in life. In fact the mandate in Revelation 13:18 to “...count the number of the beast, ...” comes with a caution that this task will require wisdom. But Solomon’s wisdom did not prevent him from turning away from God, a rejection that eventually led to the splitting of his kingdom into two parts in the reign of his son, Rehoboam.

Both money and wisdom are good to have, but loving them too much will eventually entice us away from God. For our salvation we need the humility to turn not from God but to Him, for “...remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth,...” ( Deut. 8:18) and “The foolishness of God is greater than man’s wisdom, ...” (1 Cor. 1:25).
