13 For The Devil

Negative superstitions have swirled around the number 13 for centuries, maybe even longer. No one can say for sure when this notion started, nor can we pinpoint exactly where it became linked with the day Friday the 13th, but there are a few speculations. Some believe this superstition came into play due to the fact that in 1307, the Knights of Templar were executed on a Friday the 13th. But if we really go back ,it becomes more biblical.

The story of the last super for instance, the dinner table consisted of 13 guests- Jesus and his 12 disciples. One of the disciples of course being Judas! This Last Super is said to have taken place on Maundy Thursday, and Judas betrayed Jesus on the following day- which was Good Friday. We can speculate that this is how the number 13 became associated with the day Friday, coming together to create bad luck.. For those of you who know the bible, you would have also noted that ,Judas was the 13th guest at the dinner table.

Because of the seating arrangement of 13 at the table during the biblical Last Super, over the years, arose a Christian superstition, which states, that it is a bad omen, even is inviting death to the household, to have 13 guests at a table.

Going deeper back into biblical myth; Friday is the day that Eve supposedly, had Adam take a bite from the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge. Also, Cain is said to have murdered his brother Abel on a Friday the 13th.

With everything stated herein, it appears that Friday the 13th certainly is a very unlucky, “evil” day -For Christians! Lol! Satanists have much to honor about this day.

13 is also a number with significance to witchcraft and hence also Satanic witchcraft. Every 2 and a half years we have 13 regular full moons in the calendar year. The 13th moon is known as the Blue Moon. 13 is also the traditional number of a complete witches’ coven, before it could branch off to sub-covens, in turn, making it’s high priestess or high priest, gain the title of Witch Queen or Witch King.

More detail upon this, how number 13 is one of the Devil’s numbers and more, to be found in my upcoming book about Satanic Witchcraft. To be released this fall 2021.

  1. Kindra,

    Awesome—as always…such a spooky number it is to even the most conservative Xian’s that their Free Masons would at one point as engineers refuse to build a building in modern times 20th century — that aspired to have a 13th floor. Eliminated from many buildings—yet the Xian god challenges his followers to not be superstitious or to seek the advice of a See-er…and yet they do that too.
