And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations; That these made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, and Shemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar. All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which is the salt sea. Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled.
Like the number 11, the number 13 is an ominous number in scripture. It is always related to rebellion. Genesis 14 gives the law of first reference use of this number in verse four, "and in the thirteenth year they rebelled." Twelve is the number of God's righteous justice on earth as brought about by the covenant of grace in Christ. 13 has added a demonic tone to what was perfected in Christ. This sort of rebellion is also associated with defeat as well. "And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan. And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus" (Genesis 14:14-15). Victory always, ALWAYS, goes to those in a covenant relationship with God who are not in rebellion.
All rebellion stems from the father of rebellion, Satan. It was he who convinced 1/3 of the angels to rebel against God, and it was such an ill-fated move! He was then informed in the Garden of Eden that his "kingdom" would suffer a crushing defeat as his head was crushed by the heel of God's redeemer through the seed of a woman--JESUS CHRIST, the virgin born Savior of creation! Just as the father of the faithful, Abraham, crushed the rebellion of the kings, Jesus has crushed the head of Satan's kingdom.
Have you ever taken a timed test? There is nothing worse than seeing that clock ever advance and you know that you will not finish. Satan's days are like this always. He knows that the Blood of Jesus Christ has dealt the death kneel to his work. He knows that his time is growing ever shorter. He knows that he has an appointment with a bottomless pit for 1000 years. He knows that the day is rushing towards him when he bows before all assembled humanity as is found in Isaiah 14. He knows that he is going to be cast alive forever in the lake of fire. So what is he doing today? Why is their so much evil? It is the wriggling and squiggling of his dying serpentine body. He knows his best attempts will end in failure before the GOD who suffers no defeat! "Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time" (Revelation 12:12).
On 11-11-11 a group of men called the 13 Mayan Elders will venture across the United States to Los Angeles to evoke curses on the US carrying 13 crystal skulls to use in their demonic rites. Their journey began today, October 27th! The Mayan Elders, The 13 Crystal Skulls, & the Importance of Their Upcoming Ceremonial Pilgrimage Across the USA | Wake Up World
Why 11-11-11. It may be because they are trying to curse the godly roots of America. On 11-11-1620 the Mayflower Compact was signed giving the nation of America to God. Are these demonic elders trying to curse America on the day of its dedication to God. Why Los Angeles? Are they mocking the site of the great outpouring of the Holy Spirit that took place there in 1906 at Asuza Street. This venture might even seem to prevail temporarily even as Lot was carried off my the 4 kings. However, there is another event with crystal that these demonically inspired men will need to fear.
Carry all the skulls you want. It is reminiscent of the power of darkness being triumphed over already--Jesus Christ crushed the skull of Satan at Calvary. "And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it" (Colossians 2:15). You will someday stand at a crystal sea before whose eyes no sin escapes. There will be no place to hide. Every dark deed, every sin, every foolish idea, all rebellion will be exposed. You will see the fallen angel, Lucifer, bow at the feet of Jesus Christ seated on a Great White Throne as he proclaims Christ "LORD" to the glory of God the Father. You can escape the judgement--repent and believe in Jesus Christ today. There is no other way of escape from this fateful judgment before the Crystal Sea. The demons you are evoking already know their fate--an eternal lake of fire. You have time so turn to God through Christ. Your rebellion will fail just as the 4 kings failed in their rebellion in the 13th year.
All those who are Christians--rise up like Abraham did and battle this demonic foolishness in prayer. The victory was won at Calvary! Our LORD is Soon2Come and rid all like godlessness from this Earth!
