"Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of man and the number is 666."
Precession of the Equinox
The earth's pole oscillates back and forth over a period of 26000 years per oscillation. Like a wobbly rotating toy top, the direction of the rotation axis executes a slow precession with a period of 26,000 years. The sun rises through each constellation of the Zodiac over this 26,000 year period.
Over the past two thousand years or so the sun has been rising at the Spring Equinox in the constellation Pisces. However, the sun will soon be soon be rising in Aquarius. The Greek word for fish is ichthus which was an anacronym built from the Greek words Iesous Christos Theos Huios Soter, "Jesus Crhist Son of God Savior." The sign of Aquarius is the water-bearer which is represented in the Gospels as the man who furnished Jesus and the 12 with the Upper Room.
The earth's north pole now points at the star Polaris, the North Star. However, this was not always true. As the pole wobbles it points in a different direction over the 26000 year period. If the earth's north pole was a pencil, it would draw a circle around a constellation in the sky called "Draco" during the 26000 years. This is the dragon constellation also known to the ancient Jews as "Leviathan.
