Number symbolism is one of the most mysterious aspects of Judeo-Christian spirituality. For the writers of the Bible, number held a mystical property which added extra depth to the symbolism behind the words and metaphors of Scripture, and echoed unseen properties which exist on the spiritual plane. Esoteric Judaism developed a system based on the fact that each letter of the Hebrew alphabet has a numerical equivalent. For Jewish mystical adepts, numerically equated words were purposefully linked by the Divine intellect at the moment of creation, and were waiting to be discovered and explained by those with sufficient knowledge. Passages of Scripture were fastidiously studied by Jewish mystics searching for further illumination on sacred texts through the process of gematria - a practice that is used to find and compare the numerical equivalences of words, and which would later be incorporated into the central teachings of the Kabbalah. This same method of gematria was used in the Book of the Apocalypse - the “number of the Beast” was also the “number of a man”, because every person’s name could be broken down into a numerical equivalent. Modern scholarship has shown that the Hebrew rendering of the name Nero Caesar had the numerical equivalent of 666 - thus the original “Beast” of Revelation was none other than the Roman Emperor. The Hebrew number six was represented by the sixth letter of the Hebrew alphabet - the letter waw. This letter is transliterated into English as the letter w. Therefore the letters www have the Hebrew numerical equivalent of six-six-six. Is this a strange coincidence? Or is there something more sinister at work? What connects this prophecy to the warnings of various Catholic saints and visionairies, such as those of the Third Secret of Fatima and the Secrets of La Salette? Unveiling the Apocalypse explores the aspects of prophecy in Catholic tradition which centre around the Book of Revelation. In doing so it uncovers a remarkable convergence on the prophecy of the mark of the Beast, and how the destruction wrought by a future “mega-tsunami” threatens to shift the balance of world power - a disaster which will ultimately bring about the battle of Armageddon.
