“Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled.” Genesis 14:4
Today, the Vatican elected a new pope to sit on the golden throne of Catholicism. Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis I, and is the first Jesuit pope in the history of the Catholic church. He was elected today, March 13th, in the year 2013. His age is 76, add 7+6 and you get 13. St. Francis founded the Franciscan Order during the 13th century. I’m sure this is all just “coincidence”, but you get the idea…
One of the first mentions of the number 13 in the bible comes in Genesis 14 with the rebellion against King Chedorlaomer. So the number 13 is connected with rebellion. Lets look at some interesting “coincidences” around the number 13 in the bible:
Deuteronomy 13:13 “Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known.” The sons of Belial REBELLED in Deuteronomy 13:13. Coincidence?
Nimrod, who led the building of the tower and city of Babel was the thirteenth from Adam. Judas Iscariot (13 letters).
Mark 7:21-23 says that there are 13 evils in the human heart, “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.” source – Jesus Is Savior
The History of the Jesuits
The Society of Jesus was founded in 1534 by a Spaniard by the name of Ignatius Loyola. Loyola was born don Inigo Lopez de Racalde, in the castle of Loyola in the province of Guipuzcoa in 1491. He was known as a youth to be treacherous, brutal and vindictive. He was referred to as an unruly and conceited soldier. Loyola was wounded at the siege of Pampeluna in 1521. Crippled by a broken leg and plagued by a limp the rest of his life, he sought “spiritual” conquests.
The Jesuits were to be the Vatican’s “plainclothesmen.” They were founded to be a secret society, a society that was to slide in behind the scenes and capture the positions of leadership. The Jesuits knew that to capture the leaders of any particular country or organization is to conquer the entire body. source – Chick
The Jesuits and Hitler
Hitler himself stated, “I learned much from the Order of the Jesuits. Until now, there has never been anything more grandiose, on the earth, than the hierarchical organization of the Catholic church. I transferred much of this organization into my own party.”
Walter Schellenberg, former chief of Nazi counter-espionage made this statement: “The S.S. organization had been constituted by Himmler according to the principles of the Jesuit Order. Their regulations and the Spiritual Exercises prescribed by Ignatius of Loyola were the model Himmler tried to copy exactly. Himmler’s title as supreme chief of the S.S. was to be the equivalent of the Jesuits’ ‘General’ and the whole structure was a close imitation of the Catholic Church’s hierarchical order.”
“The public is practically unaware of the overwhelming responsibility carried by the Vatican and its Jesuits in the start of the two world wars — a situation which may be explained in part by the gigantic finances at the disposition of the Vatican and its Jesuits, giving them power in so many spheres, especially since the last conflict.” source – Chick
