Today is 6-6-06!

Today's date is often written as "6-6-06." Brings to mind the antichrist, since Revelation 13:18 says: "Here is wisdom: The one who has understanding must calculate the number of the beast, because it is the number of a man. His number is 666."
In the town of Hell, Michigan, they're having a 666 party.
I talked to a church member who had a baby yesterday, and we laughed because she was glad her baby was not born on 6-6-06. Some people actually fear that the antichrist will be born today. Is that the meaning of 666?
I think the meaning of 666 is quite simple. In the Bible, the number 7 represents perfection, and the number 6 represents evil, because it falls short of perfection. The number 3 is a number for God (because of the Trinity). Thus 7 written three times is: 777, a symbol for God, and 666 is a symbol for total evil that opposes God and/or makes itself out to be God, thus the antichrist.
So I'm not worried about whether the antichrist is born today. In fact, tonight I had the privilege of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with a young couple in their home, and they both prayed and asked Jesus Christ into their hearts. So I have no idea when the antichrist will be born, but I do know two people who were "born again" on 6-6-06!
