The most venerated occult numbers are: 3, 6, 9, 11, 13
The number, “13” is considered divine by the occultist for a couple of reasons:
1. The Bible assigns ’13’ the meaning of “rebellion against constituted authority”, plus
The depravity that caused Satan to rebel against God.
the number ’13’ represents the state of divine perfection, self-achieved perfection, and Illumi-nation (6+7 = 13).
ቊጽሪ 3 ቀዳማይ ቅዱስ ቊጽሪ እያ፣ ቀዳማይ ፍጹም ቊጽሪ፣ ቊጽሪ 3 ምልክት እረሜን (ዘይኣማኒ ወይ ሃይማኖት ዘይብሉ) 3 ስላሴ እዩ። Three (3) is the first sacred number, the first perfect number (Westcott, p. 41). Three represents the Pagan Trinity
‘You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.’ (John 8:44).
The serpent identified
Was the serpent then Satan? Although the Bible tells us that ‘Satan himself is transformed into an angel of Light’, or ‘masquerades as an angel of light’ (2 Corinthians 11:14), there are difficulties in assuming that something like this happened in the Garden of Eden. Theologian Henry C. Thiessen comments:
‘… the serpent is neither a figurative description of Satan, nor is it Satan in the form of a serpent. The real serpent was the agent in Satan’s hand. This is evident from the description of the reptile in Genesis 3:1 and the curse pronounced upon it in 3:14 [… upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy Life ].’3
Where did Satan come from?
God has chosen not to tell us very much about the origin and apostasy of Satan. From the Bible we learn that he is the chief of the fallen angels (called demons or devils), and is the great adversary of God and man (Job 1:6–12; 2:1–6; 1 Peter 5:8).
He fell through pride (1 Timothy 3:6), and we deduce that this event must have been after the sixth day of creation, when God ‘saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good ’ (Genesis 1:31), and before the Fall of man, recorded in Genesis 3.
