How to Become Saved by Immersion Water Baptism through the Belief in the Perfect Blood Atonement Provided By Elohim Through His Sinless Son, Yahusha/ Yahushua Messiah (Mashiach)

If you died today or “tomorrow,” will you then be in some sort of state of non-existence? Love, hate and the question of where all matter came from that exists have not been properly answered in the context of a belief in a non-created universe. If there is a Creator, then, assuming He is not schizophrenic and opposes Himself, there must be at least one opponent, since there is true evil in the world. Satan is the enemy of all souls, with Hell created for Satan and one third of the messengers of Elohim who followed him in rebellion against the Most High El [Yeshayahu (Isaiah)14:3-27.] Being perfect, Elohim required a perfect sacrifice in order for any flesh to be redeemed, as Scripture records in Romans 3:10-26:

As it has been written, “There is none righteous, no, not one! There is no one who is understanding, there is none who is seeking Elohim. They all have turned aside, they have together become worthless. There is none who does good, no, not one.” “Their throat is an open tomb, with their tongues they have deceived,” “The poison of adders is under their lips,” “Whose mouth is filled with cursing and bitterness.” “Their feet are swift to shed blood, ruin and wretchedness are in their ways, and the way of peace they have not known.” “There is no fear of Elohim before their eyes.”

19. And we know that whatever the Torah says, it says to those who are in the Torah, so that every mouth might be stopped and all the world come under the judgment before Elohim. Therefore by the works of the Torah no flesh shall be declared right before Him, for by the Torah is the knowledge of sin. But now, apart from the Torah, a righteousness of Elohim has been revealed, being witnessed by the Torah and the Prophets, and the righteousness of Elohim is through belief in Yahusha Anointed One [Editor’s Note: Hebrew — Yahusha] Messiah to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the esteem of Elohim, being declared right, without paying, by His favour through the redemption which is in Messiah Yahusha Anointed One, whom Elohim set forth as an atonement, through belief in His blood, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His tolerance Elohim had passed over the sins that had taken place before, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He is righteous and declares righteous the one who has belief in Yahusha Anointed One.

Yahusha Messiah was sinless, yet He, Himself, was baptized by John the baptizer, whom was immersing people in the Jordan River to “wash” away their sins as recorded in Scripture in Yohanan (John) 3:1-36 and Yohanan 1:1-37 below:

Yohanan (John in “Christian Bibles”) 3:1-36 And there was a man of the Pharisees, Nakdimon was his name, a ruler of the Yahudim. This one came to Yahusha Anointed One by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from Elohim, for no one is able to do these signs You do if Elohim is not with him.” Yahusha Anointed One answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born from above, he is unable to see the reign of Elohim.” Nakdimon said to Him, “How is a man able to be born when he is old? Is he able to enter into his mother’s womb a second time and be born?”

3. Yahusha Anointed Oneanswered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he is unable to enter into the reign of Elohim. That which has been born of the flesh is flesh and that which has been born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You have to be born from above.’ “The Spirit breathes where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who has been born of the Spirit.” Nakdimon answered and said to Him, “How is it possible for this to take place?”

10. Yahusha Anointed One answered and said to him, “Are you a teacher of Yisra’el and do not know this? Truly, truly, I say to you, We speak what We know and witness what We have seen and you do not receive Our witness. If you do not believe when I spoke to you about earthly matters, how are you going to believe when I speak to you about the heavenly matters? And no one has gone up into the heavens except He who came down from the heavens — the Son of Adam. And as Mosheh lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so the Son of Adam has to be lifted up, so that whoever is believing in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life.

16. “For Elohim so loved the world that He gave His only brought-forth Son, so that everyone who believes in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life. For Elohim did not send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not judged, but he who does not believe is judged already, because he has not believed in the Name of the only brought-forth Son of Elohim. And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world and men loved the darkness rather than the light, for their works were wicked. For everyone who is practicing evil matters hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But the one doing the truth comes to the light, so that his works are clearly seen, that they have been wrought in Elohim.”

22. After this, Yahusha Anointed One and His taught ones came into the land of Yahudah and He remained there with them and was immersing. And Yahanan was also immersing in Ayim near Salim, because there was plenty of water there. And they were coming and were being immersed, for Yohanan had not yet been put into prison. Then a dispute arose between some of Yohanan’s taught ones and the Yahudim about cleansing, and they came to Yohanan and said to him, “Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the Yarden, to who you have witnessed, see, He is immersing and all are coming to Him!”

27. Yohanan answered and said, “No man is able to receive any matter unless it is given to him from the heavens. You yourselves are witness for me that I said, ‘I am not the Messiah but I am sent ahead of Him.’ He that has the bride is the bridegroom, but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the voice of the bridegroom. so this joy of mine is complete. It is right for Him to increase, but me to decrease. He who comes from above is over all, he who is from the earth is of the earth and speaks of the earth. He who comes from the heavens is over all.

32. And what He has seen and heard, that He witnesses. He who receives His witness has set his seal that Elohim is true. For He whom Elohim has sent speaks the Words of Elohim, for Elohim does not give the Spirit by measure. The Father loves the Son and has given all into His hand. He who believes in the Son possesses everlasting life but he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of Elohim remains on Him.”

—————————————————————————————————————————————————

Yohanan 1:1-37 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with Elohim and the Word was Elohim. He was in the beginning with Elohim. All came to be through Him and without Him not even on came to be that came to be. In Him was life and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it. There was a man sent from Elohim, whose name was Yohanan. This one came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all might believe through Him. He was not that Light, but that he might bear witness of that Light. He was the true Light, which enlightens every man, coming into the world. He was in the world and the world came to be through Him and the world did not know Him. He came to His own and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become children of Elohim, to those believing in His Name, who were born, not of blood nor of the desire of flesh nor the desire of man, but of Elohim.

14. And the Word became flesh and pitched His tent among us and we saw His esteem, esteem as of an only brought-forth of a father, complete in favour and truth. Yohanan bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has become before me, because He was before me.'” And out of His completeness we all did receive and favour upon favour, for the Torah was given through Mosheh — the favour and the truth came through Yahusha Anointed One Messiah.

18. No one has ever seen Elohim. The only brought-forth Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He did declare. Now this was the witness of Yohanan when the Yahudim sent from Yerushalayim priests and Lewites to ask him, “Who are you?” And he confessed and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Messiah.” And they asked him, “What then, are you Eliyahu?” So he said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” And he answered, “No.”

23. He said, “I am a voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH,’ as the prophet Yeshayahu said.” And those sent were of the Pharisees, and they asked him, saying, “Why then do you immerse if you are not the Messiah, nor Eliyahu, nor the Prophet?”

26. Yohanan answered them, saying, “I immerse in water, but in your midst stands One coming after me, who has become before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loosen.” This took place in Beyth Anyah beyond the Yarden, where Yohanan was immersing.

29. The next day Yohanan saw Yahusha Anointed One coming toward him and said, “See, the Lamb of Elohim who takes away the sin of the world! This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who has become before me, for He was before me.’ And I did not know Him, but that He might be revealed to Yisra’el, therefore I came immersing in water.”

32. And Yohanan bore witness, saying, “I have seen the Spirit coming down from heaven like a dove and remain on Him. And I did not know Him, but He who sent me to immerse in water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit coming down and remaining on Him, this is He who immerses in the Set-Apart Spirit.’ And I have seen and have witnessed that this is the Son of Elohim.”

35. Again the following day, Yohanan was standing with two of his taught ones, and looking at Yahusha Anointed One walking, he said, “See the Lamb of Elohim!” And the two taught ones heard him speaking and they followed Yahusha Anointed One.

So, the question may arise? ‘Is baptism necessary for salvation?’ The answere is yes, according to Scripture. See here.

Another question may arise, such as, “Can I baptize myself?” Since Scripture says in Mattithyahu (Matthew) chapter 18 verse 19-20, “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning any matter that they ask, it shall be dome for them by My Father in the heavens. For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there I am in their midst,” then it seems to me that there only needs to be one other person present with you there, which is your baptizer. It doesn’t say that the other person has to be saved, though. So, you plausibly can have someone who is not a Believer, and who has not been saved, immerse someone else under water in the Name of Yahusha/Yahushua Messiah. Any water where the entire body (hair not necessary) can be immersed under water, like a large bath tub, swimming pool or any deep body of water like a river, lake or ocean, can be used.

The one who is baptizing shall put his hand upon the one he or she is baptizing and help them to completely immerse under water, saying, “I baptize you in the Name of Yahusha (or Yahushua) Messiah (or Savoir, Redeemer, Mashiach or Anointed One, but I do not recommend “Christ,” since this name is Greek and has as its main-root definition as another sovereign) and in the Name of the Father, YHWH (or YAHUAH or Elohim).

Mark of the Beast 666: Coming Soon to A Town Near You on Planet Earth! With Buying or Selling Forbidden Unless You Serve the Wicked One!

Revelation Chapter 6:1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals and I heard one of the four living creatures saying, like a sound of thunder, “Come and see.” And I looked and saw a white horse and he who sat on it holding a bow. And a crown was given to him and he went out overcoming and to overcome.

WARNING TO PLANET EARTH!!!: Yeshayahu Chapters 6-35 and all prophecies in the Word of YHWH concerning the soon-approaching reign of Yahusha on earth for 1,000 years are a time for the sifting of people throughout the entire world, getting ready a Bride that is WITHOUT SPOT OR BLEMISH. All false teachers, preachers, and others — including those who continue to violate the warning of Yahusha not to add  to the prophecy of the book of Revelation or they shall receive the plagues, or take away from it and have your name taken out of the Book of Life — will be punished. Yahusha is coming with FIRE to devour those who devour the earth and its people. The Lake of Fire is the second death and they rest neither day nor night of those who take the soon-coming Mark of the Beast, where you may neither buy nor sell unless you have it, where also the antimessiah and his false prophet, along with Hell, Death and Satan are also eventually thrown, too. Thanks for listening, 777denny

And when He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.” And another horse, fiery red, went out. And is was given to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth and that they should slay one another. And a great sword was given to him. And when He opened the third living creature say, “Come and see.” And I looked and saw a black horse and he who sat on it holding a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s wage and three quarts of barley for a day’s wage. And do not harm the oil and the wine.” And when He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” And I looked and saw a pale horse. And he who sat on it had the Name Death and the grave followed with him. And authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with hunger and with death and by the beasts of the earth. And when He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the beings of those having been slain for the Word of Elohim and for the witness which they held., and they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Master, set-apart and true, until You judge and avenge our blood, on those who dwell on the earth?” And there was given to each one a white robe and they were told that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brother, who would be killed as they were, was completed. And I looked when He opened the sixth seal and saw a great earthquake came to be. And the sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became as blood. And the stars of the heavens fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its unripe figs, being shaken by a strong wind. And heaven departed like a scroll being rolled up and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. And the sovereigns of the earth and the great ones and the rich ones and the slave and every free one, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him sitting on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb, because the great day of His wrath has come and who is able to stand?”

Chapter 7:1 And after this I saw four messengers standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. And I saw another messenger coming up from the rising of the sun, holding the seal of the living Elohim. And he cried with a loud voice to the four messengers to whom it was given to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, nor the sea nor the trees until we have sealed the servants of our Elohim upon their foreheads.” And I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred and forty-four thousand, sealed out of all the tribes of the children of Yisra’el: of the tribe of Yahudah twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Re’uben twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Menshsheh twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Shim’on twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Lewi twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Yissaskar twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Binyamin twelve thousand were sealed. After this I looked and saw a great crowd which no one was able to count, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes and palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice saying, “Amen! The blessing and the esteem and the wisdom and the thanksgiving and the respect and the power and the might, to our Elohim forever and ever. Amen.” And one of the elders responded, saying to me, “Who are these dressed in white robes and where did they come from?” And I said to him, “Master (sir), you know And he said to me, “These are those coming out of the great distress, having washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Because of this they are before the throne of Elohim and serve Him day and night in His Dwelling Place. And He who sits on the throne shall spread His Tent over them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more, neither shall the sun strike them, nor any heat, because the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne shall shepherd them and lead them to fountains of waters of life. And Elohim shall wipe away every tear from their eyes.”  Chapter 8:3 And another messenger came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer and much incense was given to him, that the should offer it with the prayers of the set-apart ones, went up before Elohim from the hand of the messenger. And the messenger took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it to the earth. And there were noises and thunders and lightnings and an earthquake. And the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. And the first messenger sounded and there came to be hail and fire mixed with blood and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up and all green grass was burned up. And the second messenger sounded and what looked like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the living creatures in the sea died and a third of the ships were destroyed. And the third messenger sounded and a great star fell from the heaven, burning like a torch and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the fountains of water, and the name of the star is called Wormwood. And a third of the waters became wormwood and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter. And the fourth messenger sounded and a third of the sun was struck and a third of the moon and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. And a third of the day did not shine and likewise the night. And I looked and I heard and eagle flying in mid-heaven, crying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to those dwelling upon the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three messengers who are about to sound!” Chapter 9:1 And the fifth messenger sounded and I saw a star from the heavens which had fallen to the earth. And the key to the pit of the deep was given to it. And he opened the pit of the deep and smoke went up out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. And the sun was darkened, also the air, because of the smoke of the pit. And out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth and authority was given to them as the scorpions of the earth possess authority. And it was said to them tha they shall not harm the grass of the earth, or any green matter, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of Elohim upon their foreheads. And it was given to them that they should not kill them, but to torture them for five months. And their torture was like the torture of a scorpion when it strikes a man. And in those days men shall seek death and shall not find it. And they shall long to die, but death shall flee from them. And the locusts looked like horses prepared for battle and on their heads were crowns like gold and their faces were like the faces of men. And they had hair like women’s hair and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots of many horses running into battle. And they have tails like scorpions and stings. And in their tails is their authority to harm men five months. And they have over them a sovereign, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the Name Apolluon. The first woe is past. See, two woes are still coming after this. And the sixth messenger sounded and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before Elohim, saying to the sixth messenger who had the  trumpet, “Release the four messengers, those having been bound at the great river Euphrates.” And the four messengers, those having been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind. And the number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million and I heard the number of them. And this is how I saw the horses in the vision and those who sat on them, having breastplates of fiery red and hyacinth blue and sulphur yellow. And the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions and out of their mouths came fire and smoke and sulphur. A third of mankind was killed by these plagues, by the fire and the smoke and the sulphur which came out of their mouths. For the authority of the horses is in their mouth and in their tails, for their tails are like serpents, having heads. And with them they do harm. And the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship the demons and idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which are neither able to see, nor hear, nor to walk. And they did not repent of their murders, nor of their drug sorceries, nor of their whoring, nor of their thefts. Chapter 11:1 And a reed like a measuring rod was given to me and the messenger stood, saying, “Rise and measure the Dwelling Place of Elohim and the altar and those worshipping in it. But cast out the court which is outside the Dwelling Place, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the gentiles and they shall trample the set-apart city under foot for forty-two months. And I shall give unto my two witnesses and they shall prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clad in sackcloth.” These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that are standing before the Elohim of the earth. And if anyone wishes to harm them, fire comes out from their mouth and consumes their enemies. And if anyone wishes to harm them, he has to be killed in that way. These possess authority to shut the heaven, so that not rain falls in the days of their prophecy. And they possess authority over waters to turn them to blood and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they wish. And then they have ended their witness, the beast coming up out of the pit of the deep shall fight against them and overcome them and kill the, and their dead bodies lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sedom and Mitsrayim, where also our Master was impaled, and some of the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations see their dead bodies for three and a half days and not allow their dead bodies to be placed into tombs, and those dwelling on the earth rejoice over them and exult. And they shall send gifts to each other, because these two prophets tortured those dwelling on the earth. And after the three and a half days a spirit of life from Elohim entered into them and they stood upon their feet and great fear fell on those who saw them. And they heard a lud voice from the heavens saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up into the heavens in a cloud and their enemies saw them. And in that hour there came to be a great earthquake and a tenth of the city fell. And in the earthquake seven thousand men were killed and the rest became afraid and gave esteem to the Elohim of the heavens. The second woe is past and see, the third woe is coming speedily. And the seventh messenger sounded and there came to be loud voices in the heaven, saying, “The reign of this world has become the reign of out Master and of His Messiah and He shall reign forever and ever!” And the twenty-four elders sitting before Elohim on their thrones fell on their faces and worshipped Elohim, saying, “We give You thanks, O YHWH El Shaddai, the One who is and who was and who is coming, because You have taken Your great power and reigned. And the nations were enraged and Your wrath has come, the time of the dead to be judged and to give the reward to Your servants the prophets and to the set-apart ones and to those who fear Your Name, small and great and to destroy those who destroy the earth.” And the Dwelling Place of Elohim was opened in the heaven and the ark of His covenant was seen in His Dwelling Place. And there came to be lightnings and voices and thunders and an earthquake and great hail. Chapter 12:1 And a great sign was seen in the heaven: a woman clad with the sun, with the moon under her feet and on her head a crown of twelve stars. And being pregnant, she cried out in labour and in pain to give birth. And another sign was seen in the heaven: and see, a great, fiery dragon having seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. And his tale draws a third of the stars of the heavens and throws them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she bore a male child, who was to shepherd all nations with a rod of iron. And her child was caught away to Elohim and to His throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by Elohim, to be nourished there one thousand two hundred and sixty days. And there came to be fighting in the heaven: Mika’el and his messengers fought against the dragon. And the dragon and his messengers fought, but were not strong enough, nor was a place found for them in the heavens any longer. And the great dragon was thrown out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who leads all the world astray. He was thrown to the earth and his messengers were thrown out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in the heaven, “Now have come the deliverance and the power and the reign of our Elohim and the authority of His Messiah, for the accuser of our brothers, who accused them before out Elohim day and night, has been thrown down. And they overcame him because of the Blood of the Lamb and because of the Word of their witness and they did not love their lives to the death. Because of this rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has little time.” And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. And the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, to fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. And out of his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river after the woman, to cause her to be swept away by the river. And the earth helped the woman and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. And the dragon was enraged with the woman and he went to fight with the remnant of her seed, those guarding the commands of Elohim and possessing the witness of OWYFZ Messiah.  Chapter 13:1 And I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns and on his horns ten crowns and on his heads names of blasphemy. And the beast I saw was like a leopard and his feet were like the feet of a bear and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority. And I saw one of his heads, as having been slain to death and his deadly wound was healed. And all the earth marvelled after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon who have authority to the beast. And they worshipped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to fight with him?” And he was given a mouth speaking great matters and blasphemies and he was given authority to do so forty[two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against Elohim, to blaspheme His Name and His Tenet and those dwelling in the heavens. And it was given to him to fight with the set-apart ones and to overcome them. And authority was given to him over every tribe and tongue and nation. And all those dwelling on the earth, who names have not been written in the Book of life of the slain Lamb, from the foundation fo the world shall worship him. If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who brings into captivity shall go into captivity, he who kills with the sword has to be killed with the sword. Here is the endurance of the belief of the set-apart ones. And I saw another feast coming up out of the earth and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he does great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from the heavens on the earth before men. And he leads astray those dwelling on the earth because of those signs which he was given to do before the beast, saying to those dwelling on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword, yet lived. And there was given to him to give spirit to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause to be killed as many as would not worship the image of the beast. And he causes all, both small and great and rich and poor and free and slave, to be given a mark upon their right hand or upon their foreheads, and that no one should be able to buy or sell except he that has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is the wisdom! He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beat, for it is the number of a man and his number is 666.
