What does 777 mean?


Been trying to research "777" and can't find anything other than a cult book written by Allester somebody. Does anyone know the real history or where i can find it? Have googled myself to death... no good. Think it would be a cool tat, but i would feel better knowing the history first. Thanks.

I'm pretty sure it's just a pop-cultural answer to the "666" business, but I'd also be interested in finding out the exact history, if it's known.

Hi Roscoe.

I think you're on the money.

In Revelation 7 is a heavenly number and 6 is a human number. 666 (ie 3 lots of 6) simply means very human.

So yes in response to 666 being used as an afront to Christianity, 777 has been postulated as an answer.

I think 777 is pretty cool but at best it only has an indirect basis in scripture.

it's also used as a variation the swatika by far right groups, the 3 7s joined at the bottom as a swastika variation.

but in a christian context is usually meant to be the number of god.

I think we're getting to the bottom of this 777 business: Here's one of many mysterious posters that appeared on Chicago lamp-posts a while back, a message from an enigmatic person calling themselves 77x7

Re: What does 777 mean?


since nobody knows for sure either... I want to take a poll. Since everyone here at least has the knowledge of our Saviour, WOULD YOU SEE A TATTOO OF 777 POSITIVE AND "RELIGION" BASED? If so, give ideas of what style of letters etc... you think would look good. By the way, the sevens will have to be vertical not horizontal because of where i'd put them. Thanks everyone

Re: What does 777 mean?


i disagree with the sign or poster or whatever from the 777 guy. there are no unforgiveable crimes are there? and i dont think God would ever say someone was better of never being born...

From what i have been told i think there is just 1 unforgivable sin. Something to do with the holy spirit?

Re: What does 777 mean?


it would all depend on whats being tattooed with "777", like another symbol or something. I know now what it means to you. and God knows what it would mean toyou. but for other people it might seem like your trying to tell everyone that your God. blasphemy in some way.

and yeah. that poster guy is taking things a little far saying God feels they should never have been born. ultimately God knows what were doing. and for some reason he makes certain people do certain things, that just doesnt make sense to some people. If God didnt allow people to make choices that hurts themselves or other, then wed be living in a prison. without these choices, whether you are true with God or not, you would feel like you were imprisoned. and we cant really categorize all rappers to this one stereotype. what about KJ52. you wont hear about him shooting people.
