Man, God manifest in flesh, Preparation
The number 6 is known to be associated with mans, sin and the number of the beast. But its less known for the meaning it holds with God manifesting himself into flesh and for the meaning it holds with preparation. Although God manifesting himself in flesh and preparation both relate to man. God became a man (the God man) and preparation is for man since God is omniscience and needs no preparation. Keep in mind that Satan tries to mimic everything God does with a counterfeit. God manifesting himself in flesh has meaning with the number 6 and Satan manifesting himself in a human body (the antichrist) has meaning with 666. This post will only cover the number 6 but I will make a separate post on 666 to show their relation.
Number of man
“mankind” mentioned exactly 6 times in KJV
“man” mentioned 6 times in Genesis 6
6th commandment deals with an act you commit against man.“Thou shalt not kill.”-Exodus 20:13
The first murderer was Cain and his descendants only went as far as the 6th generation.
6 days of creation
Genesis 1:26-man created on 6th day and has dominion over the beasts. In Revelation you have the beast who has dominion over man. Satans plan is always opposite of Gods.
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
Revelation 13:15-16-beast over man
15 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.
16 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:
Genesis 6:6-God repented that he made man
6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
God told Adam and Eve the day they eat of the tree that they would die. They didn’t die physically the day they ate of the fruit but they died spiritually. Adam and Eve died spiritually and their sin created a separation from God. God has to give live to our spirit for us to make it to heaven. Man is made up of 3 parts body, soul, spirit. So Adam and Eve dying spiritually made them and their seed 2/3rds of a man. Mathematically mans number is 6 until God gives life to your spirit to make you whole again. 2/3=.66666667
Notice there’s a 7 in the decimal point after 7 six’s. I believe this is because though man is born with a fallen spirit(6) we still have the chance at eternal life with the spirit of God(7) 7 is the number of the Spirit and Gods holy/perfect number.
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Mans understanding of time
24 hours in a day (6×4) divided by 12hr (6×2) of day and 12hrs of night
12 (6×2) months in a year
60 (6×10)seconds in a minute …60 minutes in an hour

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
