The Meaning of the Very Significant Number Thirteen

The number thirteen has several meanings. These are evident and compare both in biblical usage and as appearing in a variety of other domains. E. W. Bullinger noted his observation (Numbers in Scripture - “EIGHT AND THIRTEEN TOGETHER”) that, “As to the significance of thirteen, all are aware that it has come down to us as a number of ill-omen. Many superstitions cluster around it, and various explanations are current concerning them.” How many find Friday the 13th to be somewhat disturbing? In how many tall buildings is the 13th floor known as the 14th? In how many seating arrangements is the 13th row labeled as the 14th? This study suggests several reasons why and unravels some of the mystery of this special number.

Bullinger rightly observes how the number is associated with rebellion in the Bible. Consider the first overt appearance of the number in the biblical text, where it's connected with the number 12 and the meaning of rebellion.

Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled.

Genesis 14:4

While that observation is valid and useful, there's so much more meaning to this number!

The number 13 has frequently been documented on The Open Scroll Blog as making reference to the spirit of antichrist or the person of the Antichrist as the “rebel-lord-beast,” in a collection of fit descriptives. The number 13 has most recently been documented in connection with the number 12 as signifying the mastery of time and space-time. This lends support to a key identification I was led to make many years ago regarding the biblical foreshadowing of the actual day of the month when the antichrist will be revealed. The number 13 is strongly connected with the goddess of many names, who manifests today as a Marian apparition and who is doing a very significant work in preparing the world to welcome the Antichrist. The United States of America is strongly identified with the number 13, and the basis for this is founded on more than the simple count of colonies at the time of this defiant and rebellious nation's institution. We have been paying attention and documenting how the Antichrist is frequently associated with the office of the president in very significant Occult ways in multimedia presentations, and this connection exists alongside that of the numberings of 13 that identify them both. Mind-controlled slaves that are programmed by the illumined elite have been and continue to be a major part of the work that is advancing the coming of the Antichrist Beast and system. These slaves are known to have a matrix of principle A-coded alters designed in the form of a 13x13x13 cube, and this feature very evidently exists according to demonic design.

The items I've just noted and will be expanding on are impacting all of our lives whether we accept it or not. Understanding the meanings of the number 13 helps us interpret this age as the Lord Y'shua opens these things to those of us who desire to worship in spirit and in truth and be made free indeed, and be found worthy of Him at His coming.

If you've paid attention to what I've written so far, you have noted my linking of the number 13 to the Antichrist, who represents the embodiment of the spirit of antichrist and lawlessness. Antichrist is a counterpart to Christ and, as a counterfeit of something mimics the genuine, I note that the true Christ is associated with the number 13. He gathered to Himself 12 disciples, also called Apostles. Together with them, he was the focal or central and ruling 13th. This design is known to be the basis for the typical witches' coven, whose High Priest or Priestess is the 13th member.

That the number 13 is linked to the concept of the ruling member is evident in gematria, a summing of the values of the Hebrew and Greek letters that form the words and phrases of the biblical text. The Bible is clearly an esoteric book, as it declares of itself. A lord is one who is superior in authority, and a popular spelling of the word for, Lord, in the Hebrew sums to 65 (13x5). A popular spelling in the Greek for, Lord, sums to 650 (13x5x10). The expression, "Lord Jesus," is the amplified square of 13! (132x10) The value of "Jehovah God" is 117 (13x9), of Jehovah: 26 (13x2), and God: 91 (13x7). A popular Greek spelling of "Jesus Christ" has the value of 2366 (132x14). This simple and very limited little survey of titles and identifying references illustrates how the number 13 can have the signification of high authority, even deity.

Is everything marked with a 13 bad? Obviously not. This highlights the need to be mindful of the context.

Satan and those who follow him as enemies of God and of His people are often marked in gematria with the number 13.

But it is when we come to GEMATRIA that the most wonderful results are seen. These results may be stated thus, briefly: That the names of the LORD's people are multiples of eight, while the names of those who apostatized, or rebelled, or who were in any sense His enemies, are multiples of thirteen. This statement, if it be proved, is one of the greatest evidences of verbal inspiration which the world has yet seen. ” (Number in Scripture - E. W. Bullinger)

Bullinger proceeds at length to document his claim with one dramatic example after another. Many of the words and phrases concerning the lawless one or antichrist beast are marked with the number 13. In 2 Thessalonians 2:3, for example, where the subject is the revealing of the lawless one, the gematria of the phrase (in the Greek) the 'apostasia' is 13 x 46; of "the man of lawlessness"; 13 x 151; of "the man doomed to destruction"; 13 x 139.

In the books of John and Revelation, it is in the 13th chapter where the beast appears.

More to be added as this is a work in-progress.

Summarize and reference When Will the Lawless One be Revealed? (Bride Sign - 2 of 2) Numbers appear in the Bible overtly, like in Genesis 14:4 above, and covertly in gematria and in the counts of things.

It has been observed that there are 13 famines recorded in the Bible. Famine will attend the reign of the lawless one.

The Greek word, anathema, means, curse. It has the gematria of 13 x 42, or 13 x 21 x 2.

Another phenomena involving verses occurs in all four Gospel accounts; in the record of Judas' betrayal of Jesus. After reading these particular accounts I became curious about how many verses there were in each - so I counted them. In three of them, the description takes up exactly thirteen verses! (Matthew 26:45-57, Mark 14:41-53, John 18:2-14) Take a look for yourself and check my math. In the remaining account; Luke 22:47-54, you can note that only eight are used. Why only eight? As noted by Bullinger, the numbers eight and thirteen are very often found together, and, when they are, they contrast the Lord's people with Satan's. This feature is evident in reading through the accounts. Since the number eight represents a new beginning, it's no coincidence that this is indeed a unique element of Luke's account, brought dramatically to our attention as Jesus says in verse 53, "But this is your hour--when darkness reigns." A new hour begins as the new prince of darkness is coronated!

By the way, John 13:18-30, the passage that pictures Judas being revealed as the betrayer exhibits the same 8 | 13 phenomena. And, yes, these thirteen verses are found in the thirteenth chapter!

connect ion: antichrist associated with the office of the president. The meanings of the numbers 12 and 13 are closely related. They have to do with time and the mastery of time, as in space time domains. exposes another layer of meaning in the revealing of the lawless one involves the thirteenth day of the first month, a month which may also be seen as a thirteenth month, as documented in, When Will the Lawless One be Revealed?.

"MC is like 3M and M3 but is simply one level more obfuscated, and as 13 cubed it continues to reference the Illuminati programming standard 13x13x13 grid structure of principle A-coded alters." a potent symbol of Illuminati programming. The M that rotates to form a 3 has the value of 13 by English gematria. The standard Illuminati structure for a slave has 13x13x13 principle A-coded alters, which is 133. “the 3M and M3 is a power symbol! With M as a 13 and 3 as the resurrection number, it is a bold declaration of beast resurrection. Revelation 13:1. ” In Judaism, 13 signifies the age at which a boy matures and becomes a Bar Mitzvah, In a tarot card deck, XIII is the card of Death, usually picturing the Pale horse with its rider. A repressed lunar cult: In ancient cultures, the number 13 represented femininity, because it corresponded to the number of lunar (menstrual) cycles in a year (13 x 28 = 364 days). The theory is that, as the solar calendar triumphed over the lunar, the number thirteen became anathema.[7][12] There are 13 notes, by inclusive counting, in a full chromatic musical octave. Knights Templar: On Friday 13 October 1307, King Philip IV of France ordered the arrest of the Knights Templar,[7] and most of the knights were tortured and killed. Taylor Swift wears the number written on her hand

Given that the name Mary (and Miriam) means "their rebellion," it is fitting that the "Queen of Heaven" who speaks in that name has identified itself with the rebellion number by manifesting primarily on the thirteenth day of a month. These things are no mere coincidence. The Lord appointed them and they speak to the wise!

The apparitions of the Virgin of Fátima in 1917 were claimed to occur on the 13th day of six consecutive months.[4] Since 52 + 122 = 132, (5, 12, 13) forms a Pythagorean triple. She tends to favor the 13th day of the month for her dramatic appearances. Her planet is Venus, which is naturally identified with the numbers 13 and 5 and 8 because of the celestial motions. Her constellation is Virgo, which is the 1st of 12 in the circle of the Zodiac and therefore also the 13th.

Concerning Haman in the book of Esther, the gematria of "Haman the Agagite" is 13 x 9; of his sons; 13 x 788, and of the whole family; 13 x 836. Let me now relate to you what E. W. Bullinger wrote about the record of Haman: "having diligently cast the horoscope (as pur, means: see Isaiah 47:13), Haman found the most favourable time for carrying out his designs as 'the Jews' enemy.' Esther 3:7 tells us that for 12 months the horoscope was consulted 'in the first of the month,... from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month.' then (v. 12) on the thirteenth day of the first month (i.e., the thirteenth month from the time they commenced) the favourable day was found. Then (3:13) the letters were prepared, and upon 'one day, even upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month' (at the end of the second year), the Jews were all to be put to death. On that day came the deliverance (3:12, etc.). Thus we have three thirteens connected with this gigantic effort of the great enemy to destroy the Lord's people, and with them, of course, the Promised Seed."

These few examples I'm presenting represent a mere introduction to the underlying structure. This is some of the evidence that teaches us why the first month and 13th day have been appointed for the revelation of the evil man.

As for the numbering of the first month, you may have noticed that it can be considered the thirteenth in a repeating cycle of twelve. From this perspective, the thirteenth day of the first month is doubly marked with thirteen.

Now, concerning Jesus Barabbas, we should note that the gematria of the verse Matthew 27:16 is 13 x 211.

At that time they were holding a notorious prisoner, called Barabbas.

Matthew 27:16

Matthew 27:20 : Gematria value: 13 x 779 (10,127)

But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowds to ask for Barabbas and to put Jesus to death.

Matthew 27:20

Mark 15:6 : Gematria value: 13 x 70 (910)

Now at the feast he used to release for them any one prisoner whom they requested.

Mark 15:6

Luke 23:18 : Gematria value: 13 x 719 (9,347)

But they cried out all together, saying, "Away with this man, and release for us Barabbas!"

Luke 23:18

Several 13's can be noted in the phrases found in John 18:40.

So they cried out again, saying, "Not this Man, but Barabbas." Now Barabbas was a robber.

John 18:40

Concerning Judas Iscariot the following features may be noted.

John 13:26 : Gematria value: 13 x 1495 (19,435)

Jesus then answered, "That is the one for whom I shall dip the morsel and give it to him." So when He had dipped the morsel, He took and gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.

John 13:26

Matthew 26:48 : Gematria value: 13 x 759 (9,867)

Now he who was betraying Him gave them a sign, saying, "Whomever I kiss, He is the one; seize Him."

Matthew 26:48

Another number marking the antichrist beast is 42. The name "Nimrod" is valued 42 x 7. Maria = 42 = 6*6+6 M = 13 A = 1 R = 18 I = 9 A = 1

Another very interesting feature was reported in the Aug 2003 issue of the magazine Prophecy in the News. On page 17, it was pointed out that two of the books attributed to the Apostle John contain a matching pattern that relates to the lawless one. The Gospel of John and the book of Revelation both have four chapters that present views of this wicked one - the very same four chapters. Such a feature is the mark of divine intent! These four chapters have significant numberings, being numbered 6, 12, 13 and 18. Note that the chapter numbered 13 is among them. Remove this thirteenth item from the series and you have the 6th,12th and 18th remaining. These are each multiples of six that can be expressed as 1 x 6, 2 x 6 and 3 x 6. At the close of the magazine article, an fascinating set of observations is made. Quoting from the article, "In John 13, Judas leaves the upper room to betray Jesus. In Revelation 13, the beast and false prophet are introduced. Finally, in verse 18 (6+6+6) of Revelation 13, we are told to count the number of the beast - 666!" The thirteenth chapter of both books pictures the revealing of the lawless one!

And so, we see the number thirteen as the prominent number bound tightly to the theme of the revelation of the lawless one, in gematria, verse location and count, and in the calendar date. If there is one day of the year on which to expect this sign above any other, I'll place my bets on Abib 13. If some man is raised up on that day, will you doubt his identity?

Thirteen as the USA

The national Babylon that is the USA has identified herself with the number 13 very prominently. The number 13 is used 13 times in The Great Seal of the United States. On the back of a common dollar bill you can find the following:

  1. 13 original colonies
  2. 13 signers of the Declaration of Independence
  3. 13 stripes on our flag
  4. 13 steps on the Pyramid
  5. 13 letters in "Annuit Coeptus"
  6. 13 letters in "E Pluribus Unum"
  7. 13 stars above the Eagle
  8. 13 clouds around the stars
  9. 13 plumes of feathers on each span of the Eagle's wing
  10. 13 bars on the shield
  11. 13 leaves on the olive branch
  12. 13 olives on the branch
  13. 13 arrows in the Eagle's talon

Our Lady of Fátima Appeared for 6 consecutive months on the 13th day

6 and 13

************* * also in Our Lady of 13 * **************

The number 6 is the number for man. Six is the primary number associated with the lawless one because of the popular reference in Revelation 13:18. One evidence of this is the conspicuous omission of the 6 letters in the section in which he is the subject in the acrostic paired Psalms 9 and 10.

The number thirteen is linked strongly to the number six. Mathematically, thirteen is the sixth in the series of prime numbers. (being 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13...) It is at the close of the thirteenth chapter of Revelation in the presentation of the lawless one as the beast that we learn the number of his name is six hundred threescore and six. (Revelation 13:18) The thirteenth verse of the Bible consists of six Hebrew words.

And the evening and the morning were the third day.

Genesis 1:13

It will be "on the third day" through resurrection that the issue of man's (six) rebellion (thirteen) will be dealt with.

Until it is dealt with, we must be on guard and practice discernment. Now that you have seen some indication of the spiritual significance of the combination of six and thirteen, consider the account Ray Doiron gave of a particular marian visitation in that first year of its appearing. This is his chilling account of the 6/13 visitation.

Belleville Apparitions Book - Messages From Our Heavenly Mother To Her Children - Messages Given through Ray Doiron - June 13 1993 (written on July 19, 1993)

From Ray:

On this day at the Grotto it was totally different again. This date today is July 19, and up until now I haven't written anything about this apparition. I went through a lot of pain and suffering. I know what is taking place in Medjugorje is meant to be. It is a warning from Heaven what can happen when there is hatred and sin. The devil loves this! What is taking place in Medjugorje and surrounding area is love for God, Jesus and the Blessed Mother and on the other end of Yugoslavia is hatred and sin and how the evil one works in society. He undermines people's thoughts to distrust, disbelief, and hatred which causes sin. This small country, no bigger than the state of Illinois, is totally destroying itself within its own country. They are not at war with any other country. If they were, it would make more sense. The war is between the good and the bad, God and the devil. This is a warning and a sign to other countries what hatred can do. There will be nothing left when this war is all over. There may be only one person out of 100 left standing, and to what? It is written in the Bible that whole nations will fall to damnation and destruction and Our Lady warns us time and time again, over the centuries, if we do not change our lives and turn to God and Jesus out of love and total conversion and prayer, there will be great disasters all over the world. The great chastisement has already started and the only way we as people can ease or try to stop it is through prayer and total conversion of ourselves and that means everyone, not just a few! I know what Our Lady meant when She said, "Some will suffer greatly. Hell is the total absence of God and love. We say, what is so great in that? Think about being in a very dark place where this is nothing. No one! No one to talk to, share thoughts, and to show love. Without God there is nothing left."

We think that the fire of hell is a flame. Well, in some ways it is. The flame of fire as we know it will burn the body's flesh and kill it, but not the soul or the spirit. The flames of hell burn at the soul, and it cannot kill the soul, but is a burning far beyond we as mortal can imagine, and this burning will last for all eternity. I wish I could put this into better words and describe it better, but something stops me from saying more.

Each time I try to talk about what took place on June 13 or write about the suffering and the pain I experienced, something stops me. I get to a point and my thoughts stop.

I don't know what this sounds like to someone else reading this. Maybe it doesn't make any sense to them. I don't know if I could believe it either if someone told me this, but I know in my heart that all of this took place.

I had four friends with me on this date. I remember praying the rosary with my friends, but I also remember the suffering and pain I was in. I called out several times, "Father, Father!" and my friends heard me. All I can say about this is Jesus was having me experience the pain of sin (my sins). Just think about the sins of one person and the pain it causes, and then think about the sins of the world since the beginning of time, and that is what Jesus suffered for us and is still suffering. (What pain!)

So, why was it the 6/13 visitation in particular that was so disturbing and its account so impassioned with antichrist disinformation? Because that's the pattern! Plain and simple.

The gematria of Ephesians 6:12 is 13 x 1247.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Ephesians 6:12

The verse that follows the one above is the thirteenth verse of the sixth chapter. It refers to the time the lawless one will be revealed and manifested in the earth!

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

Ephesians 6:13

I submit to you that the referenced day of evil begins when the lawless one is revealed. It is time, brothers and sisters, to put on the full armor of God!

In the book of Matthew, it is also the thirteenth verse of the sixth chapter that refers to this time.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

Matthew 6:13

And, who is that evil one from whom we should be delivered? From Satan, yes, and most certainly from that evil one into whom Satan will enter!


The following is a loosely related item of interest from what I think was the 11/17/?? edition of the regular feature, The Wolf Files, by Buck Wolf on

The master of horror, stephen King, has been dreading this Nov. 13 for at least 14 years. Now it’s upon us, hold on for a triple dose of bad luck.

For the third time this year, triskaidekaphobes — those who fear the number 13 — will have to deal with a dreaded Friday the 13th. That hasn’t happened since 1987, and it won’t happen again until 2009. The good news is that three is the most you can have in a year.

Back in 1984, when King published his 13th book, his daughter turned 13, and he celebrated his 13th wedding anniversary, U.S. News and World Report asked him if the repetition of this dreaded number gave him trepidations.

No, King said. “The year I’m really dreading is 1998. In that triple-whammy year I’ll be 49.

Can you add 4 and 9?” he said. “That’s the year I may really spend in a bomb shelter.”

The first two dreaded Fridays, in February and March, passed quietly. Now we face a third. But King’s spokesman say he’s taking it in stride.

“I can tell you for sure, he isn’t in a bomb shelter,” says New York book agent Arthur Greene. “He’s up in Maine, hard at work.”

But if King’s fear of numbers proves anything, it’s a lapse in arithmetic. King apparently erred in his 1984 interview. He actually turned 49 two years ago on Sept. 21.

“I can’t explain that one,” Greene says.

Traditionally, Friday the 13th is thought to be unlucky because it combines the number in attendance at the Last Supper, when Christ was betrayed, with the day of his crucifixion.

Contemporary triskaidekaphobes need not go back in time. They point to the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission of 1970, which launched at 13:13 from pad number 39 — three times 13 — and was later aborted on April 13.

Of course, we’re told not to fear. But just try to sit in the 13th row of an airplane or visit the 13th floor of a hospital. If it’s all balderdash, how come nobody seems willing to tempt fate?

P.S. Hopeless triskaidekaphobes should steer clear of New York’s Colgate University. At graduation, the chapel bells chimes 13 times in honor of the 13 men with $13 who founded the school in 1817. Colgate’s 13th president, Neil Graboy, assumed duties on the school’s 169th anniversary. And if your math is no better than Stephen king’s, 13 is the square root of 169.

It has been recorded that the antichrist Adolph Hitler was a triskaidekaphobe.
