When I think about politics and fame, I think, "How much is a man willing to sell his soul?" The Wisest man in the Scriptures, even consider by the Nations - King Solomon - Was willing to sell his soul for as little as 666 Gold Talents and a little flattery:
2 Chronicles 9:12-14 (KJV)
"And king Solomon gave to the queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked, beside that which she had brought unto the king. So she turned, and went away to her own land, she and her servants. Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred and threescore and six talents of gold; Beside that which chapmen and merchants brought. And all the kings of Arabia and governors of the country brought gold and silver to Solomon."
Even in Revelation it echos, the number is 666 is the number of a man:
Revelation 13:18 "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."
People are so foolish to believe that 666 is the "devil", but 666 is really, the symbolic amount you're willing to bank your life on, just as the Son of Perdition to come.
Your life is only at use by the Grace of YHWH. But are you willing to dump it into vanities of the world for a few gold coins, coke and a smile.
Some say, "There is power in my position!" There is no true power in this world, a few lower their value of themselves, but once they realize that they have power to wield by the Glory and Blessing of YHWH. You shrink into deceit looking to kill the flesh in your heart and by your hands. Those who hear, HEAR!
There are many to say, "that will never happen to me", but such a fine line between 665 to 666, do you even really know when you crossed the line?
Understand, I am NOT says, Salvation is based on a number, GOD FORBID!
What I am asking... Is your Heart, Mind, Soul and Strengthen worth loving the flattery of 666, over our Creator?
Even King Solomon repented and died. And what he left to teach was this:
Ecclesiastes 1:1-3 (KJV)
"The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem. Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity."
This maybe written for ALL or ONE, but I hope it sinks into your heart, as it did mine. If I leave nothing but the hint of the Gospel, may this understanding continued to be echoed: The LAW is DEATH (Moses), ALL is VANITY (Solomon), BUT LOVE is EVERLASTING (Yeshua)!
YHWH Bless! Amen!
