unto her out of every nation under heaven.
  43 And the day shall come when the nations of the earth shall
tremble because of her, and shall fear because of her terrible ones. The Lord hath spoken it. Amen.

SECTION 65

Revelation given through Joseph Smith the prophet, at Hiram, Ohio, October 1831. HC 1:218. The Prophet designates this revelation as a prayer

1-2, Keys of the kingdom of God are committed to man on earth, and the gospel cause shall triumph; 3-6, The millennial kingdom of heaven shall come and join the kingdom of God on earth.

HEARKEN, and lo, a voice as of one sent down from on high, who is mighty and powerful, whose going forth is unto the ends of the earth, yea, whose voice is unto men--Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
  2 The keys of the kingdom of God are committed unto man on the earth, and from thence shall the gospel roll forth unto the ends of the earth, as the stone which is cut out of the mountain without hands shall roll forth, until is has filled the whole earth.
  3 Yea, a voice crying--Prepare

ye the way of the Lord, prepare ye the supper of the Lamb, make ready for the Bridegroom.
  4 Pray unto the Lord, call upon his holy name, make known his wonderful works among the people.
  5 Call upon the Lord, that this kingdom may go forth upon the earth, that the inhabitants thereof may receive it, and be prepared for the days to come, in the which the Son of Man shall come down in heaven, clothed in the brightness of his glory, to meet the kingdom of God which is set up on the earth.
  6 Wherefore, may the kingdom of God go forth, that the kingdom of heaven may come, that thou, O God, mayest be glorified in heaven so on earth, that thine enemies may be subdued; for thine is the honor, power and glory, forever and ever. Amen.

bullet  Observations and Comments

Notice that the last verse on the page is "6" followed by the heading for section "66."  Hence 6,66.
Compare this phrase from section 65:5 "the Son of Man shall come down in heaven" with definition 2015 of the New Testament Lexicon (Zodhiates) "An appearing, appearance; spoken of the first advent of the Lord Jesus; used only by Paul for the second and future appearance of the Lord."   Zodhiates lists one antonym for this word: "Ant.: apousia (666), absence."
Section 66 comes at the center of the D&C if you count section 1, the "Preface," as the beginning, and section 133, the "Appendix," as the end.  Section 66 was given a week prior to section 1.  Section 133 came two days after that.  See Alphabetics word-number study: 66 and the Word.
Section 65, which takes up the bulk of the page, is a direct exposition of Daniel's vision of the stone cut out of the mountain without hands.  This prophecy is not to be separated from Daniel's prophecy of the beast (same beast spoken of by John in Revelations 13) which treads down all the earth and makes war with the saints, prevailing against them, prior to the saints overcoming and the kingdom being given to them with Christ as their head.  In other words, the sequence is that before the saints are triumphant in seeing the fulfillment of D&C 65, the beast first makes war with them and prevails for a time (one year), times (two years) and the dividing of time (half a year), or forty two months according to John.  This is because they have not built their foundation on Jesus Christ as they ought to have done.  Hence the beast, 666, prevails first.
Ironically, it is probably this section of the D&C, more than any other, that is the cause of so much blindness on the part of the Mormons, as they gloat in thinking that the church established by Joseph Smith will roll forward triumphant without a hitch until it fills the whole earth.  Hence they are off their guard against the enemies of God and his work, and end up being deceived and overcome for this time before being delivered.
I can't think of a more perfectly paradoxical page to fall on 666 than this one.   It fits perfectly the discoveries I have made elsewhere about the Saints actually playing into the work of Satan and being a part of his work because they fail to be vigilant as the scriptures admonish them to be.  Yet out of that body will emerge a remnant who will awake and put on strength and redeem Zion.

Schopenhauer
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.
