Mark 13:13 "You will be hated by all because of My name" ... Patterns in Biblical numbers...

The Bible's 13:13 verses reveal #13 is about men following their own ways and not comprehending God's ways...

I've been writing about the meaning of numbers in the Bible for more than 10 years and I still struggle when I set out to explain that even the numbering of chapter and verses has divine perfection. It is an incredibly impossible statement to believe --- that is, until the preponderance of evidence finally convinces you it cannot be coincidence. Here's another set of compelling evidences that demonstrate the Bible's numbers have a consistent theme and pattern to them and the text they are associated with.

As I've noted in prior posts, themes found in the text of any verse has relationship to its numbering.  The best examples of numbers and their related themes are found in what I refer to as the Bible's hyperverses where a verse's chapter and verse numbers are the same. What I observe seems to demonstrate that when the same number is repeated in relationship to a verse's numbering or numbers in the text, then the theme of that number comes out more strongly in the text. Thus, verses with the same chapter and verse number are great examples to use to determine the God given symbolism of numbers.

In the following examples, I show how the theme running through the Bible's 13:13 verses relate to symbolism/themes of; confusion, misunderstanding, foolishness or different types of turning from God and living in the ways of men. Below are 20 of the Bible's 30 verses with both a chapter and verse number of 13 -- Observe how they so consistently reveal this theme. I've left out 10 of these 13:13 verses to help focus on the most obvious examples, but if you examine even those 10 carefully, the same theme will emerge. This theme is also revealed to various degrees in other parts of scripture related to 13. Look at chapter number 13s as well as verses with thirteen in the text for more support of this theme. One of my most favorite places to confirm my comprehension of number symbolism is to look at the nnth thousanth verses of the Bible (31 in total) and the 13,000th Bible verse is no disappointment -- Job 6:21 says "Indeed, you have now become such, You see a terror and are afraid". The same theme of confusion, foolishness, wickedness surfaces in this 13,000th verse.

Observe for yourself...

Observe the underlined text in the following 13:13 verse examples and take your time to ponder if this consistency of theme is a curious example of coincidence, or if it might be evidence right before your eyes that God Almighty alone could be the only explanation for this numbering perfection...
Gen 13:13 the men of Sodom were wicked exceedingly and sinners against the LORD.

Exo 13:13 every first offspring of a donkey you shall redeem..but if you do not redeem it, then you shall break its neck

Deu 13:13 ..worthless men seduced the inhabitants of their city, saying, 'Let us go and serve other gods…

Heb 13:13 So, let us go out to Him...bearing His reproach.
Rev 13:13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men.

 Look at other verses in the Bible with like chapter and verse for more confirmation...  A favorite example of mine is the Bible's 14:14 verses that speak to Jesus, the King and Redeemer...

1Kin 14:14 "Moreover, the LORD will raise up for Himself a king over Israel who will cut off the house of Jeroboam this day and from now on.

Rev 14:14 Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud {was} one like a son of man, having a golden crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand.

Isa 14:14 'I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.'

Exo 14:14 "The LORD will fight for you while you keep silent."

John 14:14 "If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do {it.}

Num 14:14 and they will tell {it} to the inhabitants of this land. They have heard that You, O LORD, are in the midst of this people, for You, O LORD, are seen eye to eye, while Your cloud stands over them; and You go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and in a pillar of fire by night.
 (27 14:14 verses exist in the KJV and like structured Bibles -- NIV, NASB, ESV...) Gen, Exo, Lev, Num, Deu, Josh, Judg, 1Sam, 2Sam, 1Kin, 2Kin, 1Chr, 2Chr, Job, Prov, Isa, Jer, Eze, Zech, Matt, Mrk, Luke, John, Act, Rom, 1Cor, Rev

Is it possible God even numbered his Word...consider what he has told us...
