Before the tribulation, before the mark of the beast, I believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will come for his bride, to rapture her, and take her away to heaven for 7 years, to return with her after the tribulation, to rule on earth.
If the 8th beast is a world government, then it stands to reason that the 7th beast will also be a world government.

A response of correction to the idea that Social Security numbers are the "666" mark--or number--of the beast; and a defense of the biblical interpretation of "marks" being figurative, not literal, in the Bible.
Numbering systems have always been a part of governmental control, and are not evil in themselves, but practical.

Eschatology is the study of things related to the "end times." Christians and scientists agree that the world will not last forever.
The number of the Beast, according to at least one scholarly source, refers to the Roman Emperor Nero, but others think of it as a literal number, to be found in computers or credit cards everywhere.
Christians with a lot of interest in the end times are prepared to reject this number, expecting the government or big business to require that it be tattooed on their foreheads or hands.

Dispensational eschatology is deceiving millions with its pre-tribulation rapture teaching.
Eschatology is nothing more than the doctrine of last things.
Traditionally, the primary concern of eschatology has been the destiny of the individual; but in biblical eschatology the destiny of the individual can be correctly understood only in connection with the destiny of history.

For example, scholars who believe the Book of Revelation refers to real people and events argue that the number represents the value of Nero or Neron Caesar (Nrwn Qsr*) in Hebrew letters, which also have numerical values (note that Hebrew is written from right to left):

 miscoranda - The Oxyrhynchus Misreportings
There are two levels to the misreporting malefaction here: i) the fragment discovered was published way back in 1999; and ii) the number 616 has actually been known as an alternative for the number of the beast since its origination, and never forgotten.
Even if yet another fragment has been found with the same alternate number, which I find no evidence of, the omission of facts is still contemptible.
Jon Hanna argues that the bad reporting is “to allow those who hold no significance to 666 to laugh at the expense of those who do” but under-reporting or lying doesn't seem like the best way to go about that, and moreover this isn't an isolated incident.
