Before we get into the main body of this theorem we firstly need to understand what the apocalypse is and what the apocalypse isn’t, and to do that we need to understand a few things.
When the word apocalypse is mentioned in The Book of Revelations, the first thing to know is that when John wrote his Book of Revelations he was on the Greek island of Patmos when he was banished there by Roman Emperor Titus Flavius Domitianus, so he was probably getting his version of the apocalypse from the Greek word apocalupsis which literally means “revealing, disclosure, to take off the cover.”
Not surprisingly then sometimes the Book of Revelations is called “The Apocalypse of John” with the word Revelation meaning the act of revealing or disclosing; something revealed, especially a dramatic disclosure of something not previously known or realized, or in theologian terms a manifestation of divine will or truth, what it is not is The End of Days (at least in The Book of Revelations).
With that out of the way let us begin on the main article in question the alleged apocalypse in The Book of Revelations. In the last chapter I mentioned that another number for the beast was 616, but where did John get this number from? If we look at a passage from Revelations written by his own hand, we can figure out that quandary without too much trouble.
Sixth Bowl: Euphrates Dried Up
12 Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
15 “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”16 And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon**(Original manuscript reads Megiddo.)
The 11th prophet of The Twelve Minor Prophets (mentioned in the last chapter) Zechariah also mentions a place similar in name and spelling to Megiddo also:
Zechariah 12:11 - In that day there shall be a great mourning in Jerusalem, like the mourning at Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo.
The name Hadad Rimmon comes from a combination of the northwest Semitic storm and rain god, Hadad who was often being simply referred to as Baal, one of the seven princes of Hell, and Rimmon thought to be a corruption of Migdon (Megiddo).
The numbers 12 and 16 (taken from The Book of Revelations) also form up very nicely together to make a message of unbelievable clarity.
The Hanged Man, also known as the traitor’s card, in union with The Tower a card of significance and related perhaps to tarot card number 3, The Empress or Mary Magdalene. Magdala from which Mary Magdalene’s surname derives from comes from the Hebrew word meaning Tower, so given that perhaps we have a message meaning The Traitor Mary Magdalene Armageddon the Beast?
Traitor from Hanged Man card, Mary Magdalene from Tower Card, Armageddon from Revelation 16:12-16 and the beast from sixth bowl line 16.
616 the alternative number of the beast, which correlates by a deficit of 101 (5 in binary) to 515 which was the Pope being the devil, therefore we can conclude that the Pope will try and create the Armageddon, which could be a war between the Catholics and the Jews for the land which the Jews currently inhabit.
I said earlier on in this chapter I would try and explain the significance of the bowl mentioned in Revelations 16:12-16, the seven bowls form part of the alliance between, 7 churches, 7 seals and 7 trumpets. To fully understand the meaning of the bowls we have to try and interpret the others also.
1. Ephesus (Revelation 2:1-7) - the church that had forsaken its first love.2. Smyrna (Revelation 2:8-11) - the church that would suffer persecution.3. Pergamum (Revelation 2:12-17) - the church that needed to repent.4. Thyatira (Revelation 2:18-29) - the church that had a false prophetess.5. Sardis (Revelation 3:1-6) - the church that had fallen asleep.6. Philadelphia (Revelation 3:7-13) - the church that had endured patiently.7. Laodicea (Revelation 3:14-22) - the church with the lukewarm faith.

1.LAND - A third of the earth (Artabanus III of Parthia was a rival for the crown of the Parthian Empire), a third of the trees and all the green grass were burned.
2.SEA - A third of the sea became like the blood of a dead man. A third of the fish perished and a third of the ships sank.
3.RIVERS AND SPRINGS - A third of the rivers of water were made bitter and many people died.
4.SUN - The sun, moon and the stars were then darkened by a third.
5.ABYSS (FIRST WOE)
The Bottomless Pit (Abyss [Persia]) was then opened and an evil host led by Abaddon† the King of the Abyss (King of Persia - Artabanus IV) came forth. They proceeded to torture all mankind for five months - all except those who had received Yahweh's Seal at the time of the sealing. These believers were supernaturally protected from Abaddon's power.
6. GREAT RIVER EUPHRATES (SECOND WOE)
Four mighty angels (Turkey, Iraq, Iran and Syria – Parthia the Battle of Nisibis) were then loosed from the Great River Euphrates. Aided by a force of 200,000,000 (Emperor Macrinus paid Artabanus IV 200,000,000 sesterces to make peace) they killed ONE THIRD OF MANKIND (warfare between Rome and Persia). At this time the holy city (Jerusalem) is trampled underfoot for a period of 42 months (3 years 6 months). Yahweh's Two Witnesses (Jesus and John the Baptist – First recorded date of Jesus’ birth date being December 25 was 221 A.D) also preach to the world during this 42 month period. At the end of this woe the Beast (Rome gave up all their ambitions in the region, restored the booty, and paid a heavy contribution to the Parthians) who ascends from out of the Abyss (Persia) will kill the Two; but after 3 days they are resurrected and carried to heaven in great glory.7.AIR
This is a time for God's anger, his judgment of the nations and the rewarding of his saints. At this Trumpet the kingdoms of this world will pass to their rightful ruler, the Messiah of Israel.

The first thing to remember is that the sixth bowl is at line 16 in Revelations 16 which gives 616, however the sixth bowl is already mentioned so perhaps the 616 refers to 6th church, 1st Seal, 6th trumpet.
6th Church: Philadelphia (Revelation 3:7-13) - the church that had endured patiently1st Seal: Religious Conquest, White horse.6th Trumpet: Four mighty angels (Turkey, Iraq, Iran and Syria – Parthia the Battle of Nisibis) were then loosed from the Great River Euphrates. Aided by a force of 200,000,000 (Emperor Macrinus paid Artabanus IV 200,000,000 sesterces to make peace) they killed ONE THIRD OF MANKIND (warfare between Rome and Persia). At this time the holy city (Jerusalem) is trampled underfoot for a period of 42 months (3 years 6 months). Yahweh's Two Witnesses (Jesus and John the Baptist – First recorded date of Jesus’ birth date being December 25 was 221 A.D) also preach to the world during this 42 month period. At the end of this woe the Beast (Rome gave up all their ambitions in the region, restored the booty, and paid a heavy contribution to the Parthians) who ascends from out of the Abyss (Persia) will kill the Two; but after 3 days they are resurrected and carried to heaven in great glory.6th Bowl: Euphrates dried up.
Let’s begin by firstly look at Philadelphia (now called Alasehir – The city of God) one of The Churches of The Book of Revelations. Several Churches have been called The Church of Philadelphia throughout history; however this particular one has been proven definitively as the one mentioned by John in the Book of Revelations.
In Revelations 3:9 the Philadelphian Christians were suffering persecution at the hands of the local Jews, whom the Revelation calls "the synagogue of Satan” (aka THE DEVIL or THE VATICAN) which was written about in the letter of Revelations 3:7-13 which might well be the definition of the 6th trumpet. The Euphrates drying up speaks for itself, which as I currently write this happened to do just that in 2009 because of the water policies of Turkey and Syria.
While I was researching this it suddenly dawned on me something I’d overlooked with reference to the number 666 and that was the 66th word in Revelations 6, so I decided to do something about it and in doing so came up with a revelation of my own, the 66th word in that particular chapter was the word seal. Now I knew who my original thought for number of the beast was, perhaps this was purely coincidental or perhaps it was done with more purpose than I first thought. For a brief moment I was lost as to what the seal could be, as I’d already researched the 7 seals and nothing seemed out of the ordinary, that was until I remembered that it was The Devil (The Pope) who sent the beasts out and that sent me to look at papal bulls as each one was firmly closed with a metal seal. Whether or not this is true I couldn’t decide (considering that the word bull is very similar to Baal) but whatever the case it made very interesting reading.
