Was it a biblical warning or just imaginations running wild?

ABC News shows Kerry in a sea of sixes during Iowa campaign stop

During his presidential campaign in Iowa today, Democrat John Kerry was surrounded by a sea of handheld signs displaying the number six on them.

That caught the attention of WND reader Michael of Kaufman, Texas, who happened to record this evening broadcast of ABC’s “World News Tonight.”

“You can imagine my surprise, when they broadcast a video of John Kerry finishing a speech in Iowa to the acclaim of hundreds of people waving signs with the number six on them,” he said. “The imagery of 666 appearing everywhere was too much to be ignored. I had to rewind my TIVO and shoot these photos of the TV screen.”

According to the book of Revelation in the Bible, the number “666” is associated with an end-time beast power.

“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.” (Revelation 13:18.)

The signs actually are part of a final-week campaign countdown, and read: “6 More Days To A Fresh Start.”

Kerry, himself, was photographed with six fingers in the air, reminding supporters that time is short until Election Day, which is next Tuesday.
