Does Not The Likeness Fit?

The numerical value of the Pope's title on his golden crown at his public coronation, namely 'VICARIVS FILII DEI is that remarkable number 666.
Dr. Ian R. K. Paisley

Does not the likeness which Paul has produced fit exactly the Popes of Rome? 

The features are all vividly predicted, sharply cut, that there is no difficulty whatsoever in detecting the Antichrist whose image they represent. Paul did not paint at random. His is no vague sketch that could fit loosely on any system of error that would arise to deceive the world. Paul is drawing the picture of some grand, sharply-featured, long-lived, daringly wicked and fearfully blasphemous confederacy which under 'the mask of Christianity' will seek to destroy true Christianity from the face of the earth. AND HOW WELL ROME HAS SUCCEEDED AND IS SUCCEEDING. 

The Pope has erected his throne in the Christian temple; he has usurped all the titles and functions of Christ; he claims to mediate between God and man; he says he holds the keys of hell and death. He has commanded to abstain from meats; he has forbidden to marry, he has vested his priests in purple and scarlet and fine linen and decked them with gold and silver and precious stones. He has made war with the saints and drunk the blood of the martyrs. He has put his foot on the neck of Kings and pronounced himself as Infallible as God. He says he is the Vicar of Christ, the Substitute of Christ on earth. 

We confront this man and with God's Holy Word in our hands we indict him thus - 'Thou art the Antichrist.' 

'Let who will cringe and bow before thee; let who will patch anew thy vizor which begins to wax thread-bare and to permit the horrid features that lurk beneath it to shine through; let who will palliate thy crimes, and deny that ever thou didst persecute, and though simulating the meekness and innocence of the lamb, art a ravening wolf. Let who will befriend thee in the arrogant and blasphemous claims thou art still putting forth, we say of thee, Thou art he of whom Paul in old time, writing by the Holy Ghost, spoke. Hear what he called thee! He named thee, 'The Man of Sin,' and 'Son of Perdition.' 

Behold upon his tiara these Latin words carefully preserved down through the ages. 


God has told us. 

'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. 

Now certain Roman characters have numerical values. 

I=1; V=5; X=10; L=50; C=100; D=500. 

Now let us count the number of the man at the Vatican. God has told us to do it. 

V = 5 F = -- D = 500
I = 1 I = 1 E = --
C = 100 L = 50 I = 1
A = -- I = 1
R = -- I = 1
I = 1
V = 5
S = --

112 + 53 + 501 = 666

So the numerical value of the Pope's title on his golden crown at his public coronation, namely 'VICARIVS FILII DEI is that remarkable number 666. 

The pope is the antichrist. It is clearly demonstrated from SCRIPTURE, HISTORY, - AND FROM HIS OWN LIPS.
