What Does The Number 13 Mean?

“I was deep in thought and prayer, and I was thinking about the coming tribulation and everything that is going on in the world.  I was thinking about what this year would bring, when all of a sudden I saw the year just as if it had been in lights.  <2013>  So I decided to do a search on what the number 13 means.  Boy I did not think it would be a long search or yield much information, but I found much info.  It’s one of those things, that make you go HMM!  Should we pay attention to this number or this year?  I don’t know.  But it does carry a lot of symbolism.  I’ll show you what I found and you can decide.

Biblically the number 13 is said to be a great blessing and promise.

The number 13 brings the test, the suffering, and the death.  It symbolizes death to the matter or to oneself and the birth to the spirit.

Colgate University also considers 13 to be a lucky number. They were founded in 1819 by 13 men with 13 dollars, 13 prayers and 13 articles.[13] (To this day, members of the Colgate community consider the number 13 a good omen.) In fact, the campus address is 13 Oak Drive in Hamilton, New York, and the male a cappella group is called the Colgate 13.

The number 13 in the Coperos religion (small culture in Brazil) is like a God number. All coperos must know that this number can save humankind.

This is just some of the meanings of the number 13.  I just find it interesting that we start into a new year with a president that shouldn’t have been.  We start this year with much unrest, much tribulation, much war, much death and destruction, many, many earthquakes, crazy weather, and many volcanos erupting.  So hang on, we might be in for a bumpy ride, but take heart, it will end with a blessing!  We know the end of the Story!  We Win!  Our King returns.   Is this the beginning of the Great Tribulation, probably.   Just thought you might find these things interesting too.  Who knows?  We do however know that this is the season spoken of by Jesus and the prophets.  We are living in a very exciting time, and we can rest in the hands of God, and know that we are safe.

  4. What so you have to say about this new 2017 presidency which became inaugurated on the number 13, that is 1 – 20 – 2017 which equals, when added up, the number 13.


    • Sb, I have written many times on gematria and numerology. While this post was to point out the significance of numbers like 13, this is how I feel, I won’t debate this. I am not an apologist. Thank you for your comment.
      As I see prominent Christian leaders using numerology to prove their prophecy it makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. To say Trump will be 70 when Israel is 70 and so on and so on. Mysticism is condemned by God. There are satanic groups that use numbers like the number 13, but it’s my opinion this is mysticism. (Different than the years given to Daniel and John) I totally understand those who follow and teach gematria, and a Hebrew Bible Code. But I firmly believe there is no hidden language in the Bible. There are no special numbers hidden from people seeking the word of God. I understand that the number 7 represents God and the number 6 represents man and satan. But…. When God spoke to His prophets he didn’t give secret codes, He was very specific. Even when He dealt with Pharoah he gave no dates. He didn’t tell Moses tell him in 7 days I’ll do this etc. Jesus said ” No one but the Father knows of the time of my return.” He didn’t say No one except those we have left numbers with. I am only cautioning against this, even I at one time studied this, but God led me away from hidden and to the plain truth of God. God gave us signs like the cycles of the moon and sun relating to seasons and times but warned against mysticism. “Mysticism is a mix of Buddhism, and other pagan and Eastern religions dating back to the Romans and even farther with the Persian God Mithra.”
