(Article) The Nature of The Beast by G. M. Kelly

"And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 

"And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion:  and the dragon gave him power, and his seat, and great authority."  
                         -Revelation, 13.1 and 2, King James. 

"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."  
                         -Ibid. 13.18 

Thus and further is the Beast described in the Apocalypse or Revelation of John the Divine.  Since then the nature of the Beast 666 has been ill-perceived, His image perverted by the politics of the early Christian Church, and today there seems to be few who truly comprehend the nature of the Beast, also called the Antichrist.  Hollywood has also promoted the misconceptions obscuring the true nature of the Beast with such films as the OMEN trilogy - a very enjoyable and well produced fantasy, but far from an accurate interpretation of this last book of the Judeo-Christian Bible.
