Daniel 9:27, 11:31: "And he (the Antichrist) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (7 years): and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading (by way of the Internet) of abominations he shall make it (the Temple) desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. ... And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination (the image of the Beast) that maketh desolate."
Matthew 24:15: "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) then let them which be in Judaea flee ..."
Revelation 13:13-18: "And he (the False Prophet) doeth great wonders ..., and deceiveth them that dwell on the earth ..., saying to them ... that they should make an image to the Beast (the Antichrist) .... And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 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 (6 6 6)."
THE INCREASES OF KNOWLEDGE:
The Prophet Daniel wrote that at "... the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." (Dan. 12:4) This prophecy began to be fulfilled about 100 years ago with the harnessing of electricity and the advent of the internal combustion engine. Since then man has split the atom, gone to the moon, invented the jet engine, the radio, TV, computer, and the Internet, etc., etc. The greatest increases in knowledge have been in the fields of computer and transportation technology. Internet and computer technology is now advancing at breakneck speed.
Only a few decades ago it was considered science fiction to think that computers could be used to control people. However, today the technology has arrived. Now computers are capable of maintaining instantly available information on people's personal identity, medical, financial and other records. The ability to access this personal information through biochip  implanted under one's skin by way of the Internet via satellite hook ups is no longer science fiction. 
THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION:
The Word of God prophesies that at the mid point of the Seven Year Tribulation the False Prophet will deceive the people of the world into making an "image of the Beast" and set it up in the rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem. This image will be a super computer with the ability to control buying and selling and the ability to track and kill those who refuse to worship it.
One day people will be required "to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark." The perfect way of controlling people is through their bank account.
The computerized "image of the Beast" will relay the Antichrist's image to computer terminals all over the world.
The "abomination of desolation" is "the image of the Beast" which will be placed in the Temple, plus "the son of perdition" himself, when he sets as God in the Temple. The Bible says, "... the son of perdition who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." (2 Thess 2:3-4)
BABYLONIAN NUMBERING APPLIED TO ENGLISH:
Many years ago J. R. Church  came up with a formula based on the ancient Babylonian numbering system which when applied to our English alphabet produces some interesting results. The letters of ancient alphabets were often also used as numbers. The ancient Babylonian alphabet was used as a numbering system based on increments of 6 rather than 10 or 12 which we use today. If we apply this Babylonian system to our English alphabet we get some interesting results. Here is our English alphabet assigned with numbers in increments of 6 :
If we add the values of the letters of some Biblically applicable words we come up with some interesting results. Observe what we came up with when we apply this system of numbering to these words:
PEOPLE SIN = 666 (Romans 3:23)
MARK OF BEAST = 666 (Revelation 13:16, 14:9, 11, 15:2, 16:2, 19:20, 20:4)
COMPUTER = 666 (Rev 13:14-18)
TERMINALS = 666
MONETARY = 666 ("And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." -- Rev 13:17)
CALCULATION = 666 ("...count [calculate] the number of the beast..." -- Rev 13:18)
S S NUMBER = 666
LUCIFER HELL = 666 (Isaiah 14:12-15)
LUCIFER HADES = 666
DEVIL SHEOL = 666
THE BEAST IDENTIFIED:
I believe fallen angels have manipulated the genetic material of people and animals in the past to create monstrosities (Gen 6:2, 4; Jude 6-7). These monstrosities have been imprisoned in the bottomless pit along with their fathers (2 Pet 2:4) and will be released during the first half of the Tribulation (Rev 9:1-11). In Old Testament times Satan wanted the body of Moses, I believe for the same purpose of genetic manipulation (Jude 9). Satan was not allowed to have the body of Moses, but will be allowed to use genetic material from Judas Iscariot's body to produce the new "son of perdition" (John 17:12; 2 Thess 2:3; Rev 17:8, 11), the Antichrist Beast of the Tribulation. The Antichrist will be Satan's devil gene man. The Lord Jesus said concerning Judas Iscariot, "... Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?" (John 6:70). It was Christ who named him "the son of perdition" (John 17:12), and God shows us through Paul that "the son of perdition" (2 Thss 2:3) is the Beast of Revelation (17:8, 11).
DEVIL GENE MAN = 666
SON OF SIN = 666
Note the sum of the devil gene man's name with "death" subtracted from it:
JUDAS ISCARIOT = 894
DEATH = 228
894 - 228 = 666
"We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts." (2 Pet 1:19)
The prophetic Word of God has been fulfilled to the letter throughout the centuries, and this and other prophecies are being fulfilled at an accelerated rate in our day. This mass of prophetic evidence proves the validity of all the Scriptures.
In addition to this God has placed a numeric code within the English Scriptures as a verification that computer and Internet technology will be used in the fulfillment of prophecies concerning "the abomination of desolation" and "the mark of the Beast."
With all the evidences as to the surety of the Word of God available to us, we will certainly do well to heed the Scriptures concerning our salvation until the day star arise in our hearts.
"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God." (Rom 10:17) "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Eph 2:8-9)
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Rom 6:23)
"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." (Rev 21:8)
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him." (Rom 5:8-9)
"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:12) "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time." (1 Tim 2:5-6)
"Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted Word, which is able to save your souls." (James 1:21)
