Demonology is the systematic study of demons or beliefs about demons. It is the branch of theology relating to superhuman beings who are not gods. It deals both with benevolent beings that have no circle of worshipers or so limited a circle as to be below the rank of gods, and with malevolent beings of all kinds. The original sense of “demon”, from the time of Homer onward, was a benevolent being, but in English the name now holds connotations of malevolence. (In order to keep the distinction, when referring to the word in its original Greek meaning English uses the spelling “Daemon” or “Daimon”.)

Demons, when regarded as spirits, may belong to either of the classes of spirits recognized by primitive animism; that is to say, they may be human, or non-human, separable souls, or discarnate spirits which have never inhabited a body. A sharp distinction is often drawn between these two classes, notably by the Melanesians, several African groups, and others; the Arab jinn, for example, are not reducible to modified human souls; at the same time these classes are frequently conceived as producing identical results, e.g. diseases.

The word demonology is from Greek δαίμooνdaimōn, “divinity, divine power, god”; and -λογία-logia.

According to some societies, all the affairs of life are supposed to be under the control of spirits, each ruling a certain “element” or even object, and themselves in subjection to a greater spirit. For example, the Inuit are said to believe in spirits of the sea, earth and sky, the winds, the clouds and everything in nature. Every cove of the seashore, every point, every island and prominent rock has its guardian spirit. All are potentially of the malignant type, to be propitiated by an appeal to knowledge of the supernatural. Traditional Korean belief posits that countless demons inhabit the natural world; they fill household objects and are present in all locations. By the thousands they accompany travelers, seeking them out from their places in the elements.

In ancient Babylon, demonology had an influence on even the most mundane elements of life, from petty annoyances to the emotions of love and hatred. The numerous demonic spirits were given charge over various parts of the human body, one for the head, one for the neck, and so on.

Greek philosophers such as Porphyry, who claimed influence from Platonism, and the fathers of the Christian Church, held that the world was pervaded with spirits, the latter of whom advanced the belief that demons received the worship directed at pagan gods. Many religions and cultures believe, or once believed, that what is now known as sleep paralysis, was a form of physical contact with demons.

Christian demonology is the study of demons from a Christian point of view. It is primarily based on the Bible (Old Testament and New Testament), the exegesis of these scriptures, the scriptures to early Christian philosophers and hermitstradition, and legends incorporated from other beliefs.

A number of authors throughout Christian history have written about demons for a variety of purposes. Theologians like Thomas Aquinas wrote concerning the behaviors Christians should be aware of, while witch hunters like Heinrich Kramer wrote about how to find and what to do with people they believed were involved with demons.

Some texts are written with instructions on how to summon demons in the name of God and often were claimed to have been written by individuals respected within the Church, such as the Lesser Key of Solomon or The Grimoire of Pope Honorius (although these the earliest manuscripts were from well after these individuals had died). These latter texts were usually more detailed, giving names, ranks, and descriptions of demons individually and categorically. Most Christians commonly reject these texts as either diabolical or fictitious.

In modern times, some demonological texts have been written by Christians, usually in a similar vein of Thomas Aquinas, explaining their effects in the world and how faith may lessen or eliminate damage by them. A few Christian authors, such as Jack Chick and John Todd, write with intentions similar to Kramer, proclaiming that demons and their human agents are active in the world. These claims can stray from mainstream ideology, and may include such beliefs as that Christian rock is a means through which demons influence people.

Not all Christians believe that demons exist in the literal sense. There is the view that the language of exorcism in the New Testament is an example of what was once employed to describe the healings of what would be classified in modern days as epilepsy, mental illness etc.



The word is derived from Late Latin succuba “paramour”; from succub(āre) “to lie under” (sub- “under” + cubāre “to lie in bed”), used to describe the supernatural being as well. The word is first attested from 1387.

succubus is a female demon or supernatural entity in folklore (traced back to medieval legend) that appears in dreams and takes the form of a woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual activity. The male counterpart is the incubus. Religious traditions hold that repeated sexual activity with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health or even death.

In modern representations, a succubus may or may not appear in dreams and is often depicted as a highly attractive seductress or enchantress; whereas, in the past, succubi were generally depicted as frightening and demonic.

An incubus is a demon in male form who, according to mythological and legendary traditions, lies upon sleepers, especially women, in order to engage in sexual activity with them. Its female counterpart is the succubus. Superstitious folk have for many centuries told salacious tales of incubi and succubi, and Genesis 6 is a passage used to support the credibility of such stories.

These terms remain current among heavy metal bands and occult groups today. Some traditions hold that repeated sexual activity with an incubus or succubus may result in the deterioration of health, or even death. Yet, “the existence of incubi and succubi cannot be claimed as part of sound Christian tradition”.


The List of Demon Names

Below are the names of the 72 sexual demons listed in the Ars Goetia – a subsection from the Lesser Key of Solomon. Along with the names are descriptions and some basic elements that help those who wish to summon them (again: not a good idea).  DO NOT SAY A DEMON’S NAME REPEATEDLY OUT LOUD.  IT POWERS UP OFF OF ITS’ NAME BEING CALLED AND WILL COME YOUR WAY!!!

Peterson – The Lesser Key of Solomon

King Paimon

Paimon as depicted in Collin de Plancy‘s Dictionnaire Infernal, 1863 edition.

Paimon (also Paimonia, Paymon) is one of the Kings of Hell, more obedient to Lucifer than other kings are, and has two hundred legions of demons under his rule. He has a great voice and roars as soon as he comes, speaking in this manner for a while, until the conjurer compels him and then he answers clearly the questions he is asked. When the conjurer invokes this demon he must look towards the northwest, for there is where he has his house, and when Paimon appears he must be allowed to ask what he wishes and be answered, in order to obtain the same from him.

Paimon teaches all arts, philosophies and sciences, and secret things; he can reveal all mysteries of the Earth, wind and water, what the mind is, and where it is, and everything the conjurer wants to know, gives good familiars, dignities and confirms them, binds men to the conjurer’s will.

If Paimon is cited alone, some offering or sacrifice must be done, and he will accept it; then two kings called Beball (Bebal or Labal) and Abalam (Abalim) will go to him together with other spirits, often twenty-five legions; but these other spirits do not always come unless the conjurer call upon them.

Paimon is depicted as a man with an effeminate face, wearing a precious crown, and riding a dromedary. Before him often goes a host demons with the shape of men, playing trumpetscymbals, and any other sort of musical instruments.

The etymology of his name is uncertain.

According to Pseudomonarchia Daemonum HamNoah‘s son, was the first in invoking him after the flood, and wrote a book on Mathematics with his help.

When appearing he looks very fierce to frighten the conjurer or to see if he is courageous. The conjurer must be brave, and holding a hazel wand in his hand must draw a triangle by striking towards the South, East, and upwards, and command Beleth into it by means of some conjurations.

If he does not obey, the conjurer must rehearse all threats the conjurations said. Then, Beleth will obey and do all that he is commanded, but the conjurer must be respectful and pay homage unto Beleth due to his rank, and hold a silver ring in the middle finger of the left hand against his face, as it is the use of hellish kings and princes before Amaymon.

Beleth gives all the love of men and women he is commanded until the conjurer is satisfied.

Marquis Naberius

The demon Naberius (also Naberus, Nebiros and Cerberus, Cerbere) was first mentioned by Johann Weyer in 1583.[13] He is supposedly the most valiant Marquis of Hell, and has nineteen legions of demons under his command.

Naberius appears as a three-headed dog or a raven. He has a raucous voice but presents himself as eloquent and amiable. He teaches the art of gracious living. He is depicted as a crow or a black crane.

Concerning his name, it is unclear if there is an association with the Greek Cerberus. It is said that in 1583, Johann Weyer considers both of them to be the same demon. He claimed:

“Naberius [Naberus], alias Cerberus, is a valiant marquesse, shewing himselfe in the forme of a crowe, when he speaketh with a hoarse voice: he maketh a man amiable and cunning in all arts, and speciallie in rhetorike, he procureth the losse of prelacies and dignities: nineteene legions heare (and obeie) him.”

Marquis/Count Ronové

Ronové as depicted in theDictionnaire Infernal.

Duke Berith

He tells things of the past, present and future with true answers; he can also turn all metals into gold, give dignities to men and confirm them. He speaks with a clear and subtle voice, and as recounted in Aleister Crowley‘sIllustrated Goetia, he is a liar when not answering questions.

To speak with him the conjurer must wear a silver ring and put it before his face in the same form as it is needed in Beleth‘s case and demons do before Amaymon.

He is depicted as a soldier wearing red clothes, a golden crown, and riding a red horse.

Books on the subject tell that he is called according to whom invokes him, being called Berith by the Jews (see below).

According to some demonologists from the 16th century, his power is stronger in June, meanwhile to Sebastien Michaelis he suggests murder and blasphemy and his adversary is St. Barnabas.

His name was surely taken from Baal Berith (god), a form of Baal worshiped in Berith (Beirut), Phoenicia.

In Alchemy Berith was the element with which all metals could be transmuted into gold.

‘Berith’ is the Hebrew word for covenant, it was originated from the Akkadian (Babylonian) word ‘Biritu’ which means to ‘fetter’ or ‘to bond’.

Duke Astaroth

Astaroth (also Ashtaroth, Astarot and Asteroth) is referred to in The Lesser Key of Solomon as a very powerful demon. In art, in theDictionnaire InfernalAstaroth is depicted as a nude man with feathered wings, wearing a crown, holding a serpent in one hand, and riding a beast with dragon-like wings and a serpent-like tail. According to Sebastien Michaelis he is a demon of the First Hierarchy, who seduces by means of laziness, vanity, and rationalized philosophies.

To others, he teachesmathematical sciences and handicrafts, can make men invisible and lead them to hidden treasures, and answers every question formulated to him.

King Asmodeus

Asmodai (also Ashmodai, Asmodeus, Asmody, Asmoday) appears as the king ‘Asmoday’ in the Ars Goetia, where he is said to have a seal in gold and is listed as number thirty-two according to respective rank.[15]

Prince/President Gäap

Gaap (also Goap, Tap) is a mighty Prince and Great President of Hell, commanding sixty-six legions of demons. He is, according to The Lesser Key of Solomon, the king and prince of the southern region of Hell and Earth, and according to the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum (False Monarchy of the Demons) the king of the western region and as mighty as Beleth, but for both he is the guide of the four kings (the others being ZiminiarCorson and Amaymon, although some translations of The Lesser Key of Solomonconsider BelialBelethAsmodai and Gaap, not giving detail on the cardinal point they rule). He is said to be better conjured to appear when the Sun is in a southern zodiacalsign.

He is depicted as a hart or winged hart, and also as an angel.

‘Furfur’ or ‘furfures’ in Latin means “bran”. However it seems more likely that the name is a corruption of ‘Furcifer’ the Latin word for scoundrel. Slightly less likely considering the context, but still possible, is that the name originated from ‘fur’, Latin for “thief”.

Marquis Marchosias


Marchosias (also Marchocias) is a powerful Great Marquis of Hell, commanding thirty legions of demons. He is a strong and excellent fighter and very reliable to the conjurer, giving true answers to all questions.

He is depicted as a phoenix, which sings sweet notes with the voice of a child, but the conjurer must warn his companions (for he has not to be alone) not to hear them and ask him to put in human shape, which the demon supposedly does after a certain amount of time.

Johann Weyer’s Pseudomonarchia Daemonum describes this spirit as follows:

“Phoenix is a great marquesse, appearing like the bird Phoenix, having a child’s voice: but before he standeth still before the conjuror, he singeth manie sweet notes. Then the exorcist with his companions must beware he give no eare to the melodie, but must by and by bid him put on humane shape; then will he speake marvellouslie of all woonderfull sciences. He is an excellent poet, and obedient, he hopeth to returne to the seventh throne after a thousand two hundredth yeares, and governeth twentie legions.”

Focalor is mentioned in The Lesser Key of Solomon as the forty-first of the 72 goetic demons. According to the grimoire: Focalor appears in the form of a man with a griffin‘s wings, kills men, drowns them, and overthrows warships; but if commanded by the conjurer he will not harm any man or thing. Focalor has power over wind and sea, and had hoped to return to heaven after one thousand years, but he was deceived in his hope.

One of the three archdemons, Lucifuge Rofocale, has his second name as an anagram of Focalor, implying an intellectual relationship.[clarification needed]

Duke Vepar

Not to be confused with Zepar.

Vepar (also Separ, Vephar) is a strong Great Duke of Hell, and rules twenty-nine legions of demons. He governs the waters and guides armoured ships laden with ammunition and weapons; he can also make, if requested, the sea rough and stormy, and to appear full of ships. Vepar can make men die in three days by putrefying sores and wounds, causing worms to breed in them, but if requested by the conjurer he can heal them immediately.

Vepar is depicted as a mermaid.

Marquis Shax

Shax (also spelled Chax, Shan, Shass, Shaz, and Scox) is a Great Marquis of Hell, and has power over 30 legions of demons on evil horses. He takes away the sight, hearing and understanding of any person under the conjurer’s request, and steals money out of kings’ houses, carrying it back to the people. He also steals horses and everything the conjurer asks. Shax can also discover hidden things if they are not kept by evil spirits, and sometimes gives good familiars, but sometimes those familiars deceive the conjurer. He should not be bothered too often.

Shax is thought to be faithful and obedient, but is a great liar and will deceive the conjurer unless obliged to enter a magic triangle drawn on the floor. He will then speak marvellously and tell the truth. He knows when lies are told and uses these to teach lessons.

He is depicted as a stork that speaks with a hoarse but subtle voice; his voice changes into a beautiful one once he entered the magic triangle.

King/Count Viné

This demon is portrayed as a lion holding a snake in his hand and riding a black horse.

The etymology of his name seems to be the Latin word ‘vinea’, vine, that is also the name given to an ancient war machine made of wood and covered with leather and branches, used to overthrow walls.

Count Bifrons

Bifrons (also Bifrovs, Bifröus, Bifronze) is a demon, Earl of Hell, with six legions of demons under his command.

Not to be confused with Foras.

Image of Furcas from Collin de Plancy‘s Dictionnaire Infernal

Furcas (also Forcas) is a Knight of Hell, and rules 20 legions of demons.[16] He teaches PhilosophyAstronomyRhetoricLogicChiromancy andPyromancy.

Furcas is a knight and commeth foorth in the similitude of a cruell man, with a long beard and a hoarie head, he sitteth on a pale horsse, carrieng in his hand a sharpe weapon, he perfectlie teacheth practike philosophie, rhetorike, logike, astronomie, chiromancie, pyromancie, and their parts: there obeie him twentie legions.

— Johann Weyer (1583)

The etymology of his name may be derived from the Latin word furca, meaning fork, or from Greco-Roman also meaning a sepulchre (tomb).

King Balam

Balam (also Balaam, Balan) is a great and powerful king of Hell who commands over forty legions of demons. He gives perfect answers on things past, present, and to come, and can also make men invisible and witty.

His name seems to have been taken from Balaam, the Biblical magician.

Duke Allocer

Allocer (also Alocer, Alloces) is a demon whose title is Great Duke of Hell, and who has thirty-six legions of demons under his command. He induces people to immorality and teaches arts and all mysteries of the sky.

Allocer is often depicted riding a horse with dragonlegs.

President Camio

Camio in bird form as depicted in Collin de Plancy‘s Dictionnaire Infernal, 1863 edition.

Camio (also Caim, Caym) appears in Ars Goetia, the first part of Lesser Key of Solomon as a Great President of Hell, ruling over thirty legions of demons. Much detail is offered: he is a good disputer, gives men the understanding of the voices of birds, bullocks, dogs, and other creatures, and of the noise of the waters too, and gives true answers concerning things to come.

He is depicted in 19th and 20th century occultist illustrations as appearing in the form of the black bird called a thrush, but soon he changes his shape into a man that has a sharp sword in his hand. When answering questions he seems to stand on burning ashes orcoals.

The title ‘President‘ of Hell would suggest a parallel with the presiding officer of a college or convocation, which are the only pre-modern uses of the term.

Camio’s name seems to be taken from the biblical first murderer, Cain.

Duke/Count Murmur

The Seal of Murmur according to theArs Goetia.

Murmur (also Murmus, Murmuur, Murmux) is a Great Duke and Earl of Hell, and has thirty legions of demons under his command. He teaches Philosophy, and can oblige the souls of the deceased to appear before the conjurer to answer every desired question.

Murmur is depicted as a soldier riding a Vulture or a Griffin, and wearing a ducal crown. Two of his ministers go before him making the sound of trumpets. ‘Murmur’ in Latin means noise, whisper, murmur, and the sound of the trumpet.

An early woodcut image of Orobas.

Orobas is a powerful Great Prince of Hell, having twenty legions of demons under his control.

He supposedly gives true answers of things past, present and to come, divinity, and the creation of the world; he also confers dignities and prelacies, and the favour of friends and foes. Orobas is faithful to the conjurer, does not permit that any spirit tempts him, and never deceives anyone.

He is depicted as a horse that changes into a man under the conjurer’s request.

The name could come from Latin ‘orobias’, a type of incense.

Orobas is the Lesser Key of Solomon #78; there, he is described as an “oracle” rather than a demon.

Duke Gremory

Gremory (aka Gamory, Gemory, or Gomory) is a strong Duke of Hell that governs twenty-six legions of demons. He tells all things past, present and future, about hidden treasures, and procures the love of women, young and old, but especially maidens.

He is depicted as appearing in the form of a beautiful woman with the crown of a duchess tied around her waist, and riding a camel.

President Ose

Ose (also Osé, Oze, Oso, Voso) is a Great President of Hell, ruling three legions of demons. He makes men wise in all liberal sciences and gives true answers concerning divine and secret things; he also brings insanity to any person the conjurer wishes, making him/her believe that he/she is the creature or thing the magician desired, or makes that person think he is a king and wearing a crown, or a Pope.

Ose is depicted as a leopard that after a while changes into a man.

His name seems to derive from Latin ‘os’, mouth, language, or ‘osor’, that who abhors.

President Amy

Amy (also Avnas) is the 58th spirit, a President of Hell,[20] and according to Johann Weyer’s Pseudomonarchia daemonum:[21]

He is said to appear as a small poor boy with angel wings riding on a two-headed dragon.

Marquis Andras


Andras is a Great Marquis of Hell, having under his command thirty legions of demons. He sows discord among people.

According to the Goetia, Andras was a Grand Marquis of Hell, appearing with a winged angel‘s body and the head of an owl or raven, riding upon a strong black wolf and wielding a sharp and bright sword. He was also responsible for sowing discord, and commanded 30 infernal legions. He is the 63rd of the 72 spirits of Solomon.

Andras was considered to be a highly dangerous demon, who could kill the conjuring magician and his assistants if precautions were not taken. A misstep outside the magical protective circle could mean instant death for the conjurer(s), and Andras was always trying to lure them out.

The Dutch demonologist Johannes Wier, in his Pseudomonarchia Daemonum, says of Andras:

“Andras is a great marquesse, and seemes in an angels shape with a head like a blacke night raven, riding upon a blacke and a verie strong woolfe, flourishing with a sharpe sword in his hand, he can kill the maister, the servant, and all assistants, he is author of discords, and ruleth thirtie legions.”

Another demonologist, Collin de Plancy, also mentions Andras in his writings:

“Grand Marquis of Hell. He appears to have the body of an angel and the head of a wood owl, and to be riding a black wolf and carrying in his hand a pointed saber. He teaches those whom he favors to kill their enemies, masters and servants. He stirs up trouble and dissension. He commands thirty legions.”

Duke Flauros

Flauros (also Flavros, Hauras, Haures, Havres) is a strong Great Duke of Hell, having thirty-six (twenty according to Pseudomonarchia Daemonum) legions of demons under his rule.

He gives true answers of all things past, present and future, but he must be first commanded to enter a magic triangle for if not he will lie, deceive the conjurer, and beguile him in other business. But if he enters the triangle he will answer truly, and gladly speak about divinity, the creation of the world, himself, and other fallen angels. He can also destroy all the conjurer’s enemies by burning them up. If the magician requests it, he will not suffer temptations from any spirit or in any form.

Commonly people represent him as a humanoid leopard with big claws. Flauros is depicted as a terrible and strong leopard that under request of the conjurer changes into a man with fiery eyes and an awful expression.

Flauros can also supposedly be called upon when a mortal wishes to take vengeance on other demons. This is likely included in his capability to destroy the conjurer’s enemies.

Marquis Andrealphus

Andrealphus (also Androalphus) appears as the 54th demon in Johann Weyer’s tome on demonology Pseudomonarchia Daemonum and is described as a great Marquis with the appearance of a Peacock who raises great noises and teaches cunning in astronomy, and when in human form also teaches geometry in a perfect manner. He is also described as ruling over thirty legions and as having the ability to turn any man into a bird.

Andrealphus also appears as the 65th demon in the Goetia where he is described with similar traits, but also including the ability to make men subtle in all things pertaining toMensuration, among other things.

Marquis Kimaris

Kimaris (also known by the alternate names Cimeies, Cimejes and Cimeries) is most widely known as the 66th demon of the first part of the Lemegeton (popularly known as theArs Goetia). He is described as a godly warrior riding a black horse, and possesses the abilities of locating lost or hidden treasures, teaching trivium (grammarlogic andrhetoric) and making a man into a warrior of his own likeness. He holds the rank of marquis, and is served by 20 legions. He also rules over all the spirits of Africa. Much the same description is found in the earlier text of Johann Weyer’s catalog of demons, Pseudomonarchia Daemonum (published 1563). Earlier still is the Munich Handbook of Necromancy: Clm 849 (published by Richard Kieckhefer, as Forbidden Rites: a necromancer’s manual of the 15th century 1998) which lists an entity named Tuvries with much the same characteristics, except that he has 30 legions of servitors, and can cause a person to cross seas and rivers quickly. Most likely, Tuvries is a mistranscription of Cymries.

Kimaris, as Cimeries, is also found on Anton LaVey‘s list of infernal names, although it is not known why LaVey chose Kimaris as one of the comparatively few Goetic daimons included. Aleister Crowley, in 777, gives Kimaris the Hebrew spelling KYMAVR and attributes him to the four of disks and the third decan of Capricorn by night. KYMAVR may allude to “Khem-our” (black light), a form of Horus mentioned in H. P. Blavatsky‘s Secret Doctrine. In Sepher Sephiroth, he is listed as KYTzAVR, with a gematria of 327, although KYMAVR=277. Since Tzaddi=90, which is also Mem spelled in full, the gematric substitution may be deliberate or a blind.

In Harleian Ms. 6482, titled “The Rosie Crucian Secrets” (printed by the Aquarian Press, 1985), Dr. Rudd lists Cimeries as the 26th spirit made use of by King Solomon. He also attributes an angel Cimeriel to one of Dee’s Enochian Ensigns of Creation, the tablet of 24 mansions (see McLean, Treatise on Angel Magic). The earliest mention of Chamariel is in Rossi’s Gnostic tractate (see Meyer and Smith, Ancient Christian Magic). It is probable that the earliest mention of Kimaris is also Coptic, found in the London oriental mss 6796 where the name “Akathama Chamaris” appears (Meyer and Smith). In this text, the entity in question does not appear to be evil; rather, he is addressed as a godlike helping spirit.

Baskin’s Dictionary of Satanism speculates that Cimeries is derived from Cimmerians, a warlike people mentioned in the works of several classical authors as dwelling totally in darkness.

It is also possible that Cimeries is derived from Chimaira, the three-headed, fire-breathing lion-goat-serpent who eventually became one of the guardians of the underworld. There is a precedent, considering that the harmless Phoenix is also demonized in the Goetia.

King Amdusias


Amdusias (also Amduscias, Amdukias or Ambduscias) has 29 legions of demons and spirits under his command and has the rank ofGreat King. He is depicted as a human with claws instead of hands and feet, the head of a unicorn, and a trumpet to symbolize his powerful voice.

Amdusias is associated with thunder and it has been said that his voice is heard during storms. In other sources, he is accompanied by the sound of trumpets when he comes and will give concerts if commanded, but while all his types of musical instruments can be heard they cannot be seen. He is regarded as being the demon in charge of the cacophonous music that is played in Hell. He can make trees bend at will.

He is mentioned as a King in Johann Weyer’s Pseudomonarchia Daemonum (1583).

King Belial

Belial is listed as the sixty-eighth spirit of The Lesser Key of Solomon. He is a King of Hell with 80 legions of demons, and 50 legions of spirits, under his command. He was created as the first, after Lucifer. He has the power to distribute senatorships and gives excellent familiars. He must be presented with offerings, sacrifices and gifts, or else he will not give true answers to demands.

Marquis Decarabia

Decarabia (also called Carabia) is a demon and, according to The Lesser Key of Solomon, a Great Marquis of Hell, or a King and Earl according to the original Latin version of the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum (these were somehow left out of the English translation by Reginald Scot). He has thirty legions of demons under his command. Decarabia knows the virtues of all herbs and precious stones, and can change into all birds and sing and fly like them before the conjurer.

He is depicted as appearing as a pentagram star, changing into a man under the conjurer’s request.

Prince Seere

Seir (also known as Seire, Seere, or Sear) is a Prince of Hell with 26 legions of demons under his command. He can go to any place on earth in a matter of seconds to accomplish the will of the conjurer, bring abundance, help in finding hidden treasures or in robbery, and is not a demon of evil but good nature, being mostly indifferent to evilness.

He is depicted as a man riding a winged horse, and is said to be beautiful.

Duke Dantalion

Dantalion’s seal from the Lesser Key of Solomon

Dantalion (or Dantalian) is a powerful Great Duke of Hell, with thirty-six legions of demons under his command; he is the 71st of 72 spirits of Solomon. He teaches all arts and sciences, and also declares the secret counsel of anyone, given that he knows the thoughts of all people and can change them at his will. He can also cause love and show the similitude of any person, show the same by means of a vision, and let them be in any part of the world they will.

He is depicted as a man with many appearances, which means the faces of all men and women. There are also many depictions in which he is said to hold a book in one of his hands:

“The Seventy-first Spirit is Dantalion. He is a Duke Great and Mighty, appearing in the Form of a Man with many Countenances, all Men’s and Women’s Faces; and he hath a Book in his right hand. His Office is to teach all Arts and Sciences unto any; and to declare the Secret Counsel of any one; for he knoweth the Thoughts of all Men and Women, and can change them at his Will. He can cause Love, and show the Similitude of any person, and show the same by a Vision, let them be in what part of the World they Will. He governeth 36 Legions of Spirits; and this is his Seal, which wear thou, etc.” – The Lesser Key of Solomon

Count Andromalius

Andromalius is a mighty Great Earl of Hell, having thirty-six legions of demons at his service. He can bring back both a thief and the stolen goods, punishes all thieves and other wicked people, and discovers hidden treasures, all evilness, and all dishonest dealing.

Andromalius is depicted as a man holding a big serpent in his hand.

“The Seventy-second Spirit in Order is named Andromalius. He is an Earl, Great and Mighty, appearing in the Form of a Man holding a Great Serpent in his Hand. His Office is to bring back both a Thief, and the Goods which be stolen; and to discover all Wickedness, and Underhand Dealing; and to punish all Thieves and other Wicked People and also to discover Treasures that be Hid. He ruleth over 36 Legions of Spirits. His Seal is this, the which wear thou as aforesaid, etc.” –

Here’s a short list of keywords for the numbers in biblical times:

  1. Source before manifestation.
    1. God, the one immutable divine unity.
    2. Duality—human, not divine.
    3. Attributes of 1+2 = 3—union of divine
    and human qualities.
    4. The idea of solidity—steadfastness.
    5. Humanity with its five developed senses.
    6. Equilibrium, fitness, peace.
    7. Humanity’s septenary nature, cyclic fullness.
    8. Accumulation, strength, power, augmentation.
    9. Consolidation, conservation, humanness. (The true mission of the 9 is to serve as a minister of God on earth.)
    10. God and humanity, father-mother-deity, completion.
  2. Strong Individual Principles – End of a cycle. Creative – Self Expression – Artistic – Rhythm – Communication – Expansion and Growth – Inner Peace.
  3. Overcoming Inharmonies For Other People – Going Through The Wilderness – Overcoming – cooperation – harmony – responsibility – firm foundation – practical – organized – disciple – hard worker – planner. This energy is constantly striving to overcome inharmony for self and others. The talents have ensured an orderly lifestyle, and the quiet receptive nature can deal wisely with others. The higher guidance is always available for protection and direction. The goal and purpose of this energy is to bring the Spiritual energies into the material plane to overcome the inharmonies and bring balance. It is developing Cosmic Consciousness that will help tune-in to the real meaning of life. Many are going through the wilderness until they learn the singleness of purpose and the true plan for man on earth – selfless devotion to the uplifting of humanity and its environment.

666 – Spiritual-Material ConflictIn numerology, you count this number as 6+6+6 = 18 (1+8) = 9 – so 666= 18/9 – 18 is 9 vibrating at this level – REMEMBER 9 is the number of HUMANNESS / HUMANITY – 18 gives 9, humanness, a vibration of Spiritual-Material Conflict. 18 symbolizes materialism striving to destroy the spiritual side of nature. It often associates the person or entity represented (humanity here) by bitter quarrels within the family circle (humanity/the world) – with wars, social upheaval, and revolution. In some cases it indicates making money or achieving position through divisive tactics through war or conflict. It warns of treachery and deception from both “friends” and enemies; also danger from the elements such as fire, flood, earthquakes, tempests and explosions, electrical shock or lightening. The only way to dilute its effect on life is by spiritual means, by unfailing and repeatedly meeting deception and hatred from others with generosity, love, forgiveness, by “turning the other cheek” and returning good for evil, kindness for cruelty, honesty for dishonesty, honor for dishonour.

JESUS = 1+5+3+6+3 = 18/9 – He overcame the 18 influence and vibrated to the highest level of 9 to show us the way – How to serve as ministers to God on Earth!

Below you will find a very detailed explanation of the meaning of numbers in the bible for the old and new testaments:



THE BIBLE is a veritable mine of number symbology. Both the Old and New Testaments reveal, by use of numbers, depth, meaning, and hidden concepts, which commonly escape the casual reader. The Zohar, a collection of mystical kabalistic writings, states that, “The Universe was created by three forms of expression – Numbers, Letters and Words.”  The letters in all alphabets represent definite powers. To study the vibratory value of numbers and letters is to study the divine creative energies in various degrees of manifestation.  Every name in the Bible describes a deeper meaning regarding the person or place to which it applies. Similarly certain words are made to have hidden significance.

Bible Symbology – The Old Testament

To read through the Old Testament, the Torah, Cabalah, and other sacred Hebraic writings, is to become well aware of how the Hebrews used the science of names and numbers in their number-letter code. By this code they wished to obscure their meanings from the uninitiated, and at the same time to reveal their inner teachings to the initiate.

Each letter of the Hebrew alphabet has several meanings – for example the letter Aleph (A) means “life-breath, power, source;” while the letter Beth ((B) means “house, shelter” – and so on with every letter. The symbology allowed hidden teachings to be evident to those who knew how to read the deeper message contained in the names of all persons and places described. Scholars could also penetrate the mask of allegory and receive or give divine guidance through numbers and letters.

For example, the story of Cain slaying Abel is about fraternal rivalry. But symbolically, the name Cain means body and materialistic human desires, while Abel stands for the soul and idealistic human nature. These characters were so named to warn that materialism would kill spiritual ideas; hence Cain was said to have killed Abel (Genesis 4:8).

Many biblical characters that reached periods of spiritual growth and development in their lives were given new names by divine direction. Thus Abram became Abraham (Genesis 17:5) and Sara became Sarah (Genesis 17:15). In both cases, the Hebrew Heh (H), a letter meaning “light” and having a vibration of 9, was added to the name to denote the attainment of spiritual light.

New Testament writers also made name changes to point out an individual’s spiritual progress. For example, Saul became Paul after his conversion to Christianity (Acts 9:1-22 and 13:9). This symbolized the removal of the Hebrew Shin (5) and its replacement with the Hebrew Peh (P). Shin means “tooth or fang of a serpent. “Peh means, “mouth.” After this change, Saul became Paul, the spokesman for Christ (Acts 13:9). As Proverbs 22:1 states, “a good name is rather to be chosen than great riches.”

A further use of numbers in biblical language involves recounting the number of years a person lived, beget and died. These numbers did not refer to the person’s age in years, but rather to progress in spiritual attainment. The meaning of the name of the begotten indicated the development of a characteristic. Cycles also were indicated by the generations of descent. For example, from Adam to Noah there were nine generations, and from Noah to Abraham there were also nine generations. That made Noah the ninth from Adam, and Abraham the ninth from Noah.

Adam had three sons – Cain (body), Abel (soul) and Seth (replacement for Abel to carry the spiritual light). In a parallel situation, Old Noah also had three sons—Shem (spirit), Ham (physical nature) and Testament Japhet (mental nature). These names represented the growth of humanity in consciousness after eighteen cycles of change.

Abram meant “father,” while Abraham implied the added faith in God, which he had come to realize. At ninety-nine years of age, Abraham begat Isaac, whose name meant, “joy in divine sonship.” Isaac begat Jacob, whose name meant “illumination through un-folding soul.” Jacob’s twelve sons (Genesis 35:22-27) refer to the twelve types of consciousness represented by the twelve character types in the signs of the zodiac.

To study the whole Bible in this light is to have a lifetime of fascinating discovery. It can be said that Hebrew, more than any other language offers us a great opportunity to study the profound power and significance of names.

Here is a short list of keywords for the numbers in biblical times:

0. Source before manifestation.
1. God, the one immutable divine unity.
2. Duality—human, not divine.
3. Attributes of 1+2 = 3—union of divine and human qualities.
4. The idea of solidity—steadfastness.
5. Humanity with its five developed senses.
6. Equilibrium, fitness, peace.
7. Humanity’s septenary nature, cyclic fullness.
8. Accumulation, strength, power, augmentation.
9. Consolidation, conservation, humanness. (The true mission of the 9 is to serve as a minister of God on earth.)
10. God and humanity, father-mother-deity, completion.

Modern numerology has grown partly from these concepts. The numbers and letters reflect meanings from the past coupled with many added spiritual interpretations. Meanings of our names today have deep significance and can be delineated letter by letter and number by number as we attain cycles of expression year by year in our own lives.

0 – (Zero) – GENESIS, which means, “First cause,” relates to the primordial source. The first few verses of Genesis pertain only to the one God, as divine creator, who brings the world into existence out of the void, or from the unmanifest.

1 – (One) – “LET THERE BE LIGHT” (Genesis 1:3). The first spiritual emanation was light. If our soul continues to follow the light, we will get back to our source. 1 stands for a beginning, a new start and unity.

2 – (Two) – “ . . .AND GOD DIVIDED the light from the darkness” (Genesis Symbology 1:4). In 2 there is duality, day and night, heaven and earth, man and woman and all pairs of opposites. Thus the development of choice began between good and evil, true and false and positive and negative. Pythagoras says, “2 is the imperfect condition into which ‘being’ falls, when it becomes detached from the monad, God.” Manly Hall in The Mystical Christ, states, “When the eyes of the both are opened, the sight of the soul is obscured.”

3 – (Three)– THE FIRST TRINITY—Adam and Eve and child. Thus 3 means Manifestation and expansion. Other trinities survive in our world-body, soul, and spirit, and the three divisions of Mind-conscious, subconscious and super-conscious.

4 – (Four)– MANY BIBLICAL REFERENCES are taken from the cycles of the natural world. The symbology of the four seasons and four winds is embodied in Ezekiel’s vision of the four living creatures—the face of a man, the face of a lion, the face of an ox and the face of an eagle (Ezekiel 1:5-14). These four relate to the four fixed signs of the zodiac.

The four elements appear symbolically as the birds of the air, the fish of the sea, and the fire of the Lord and the products of the earth. Genesis 2:10-14 tells of the “river out of Eden which parted into four heads.” The rivers were named Pison, Gihon, Hiddekel and Euphrates. Metaphysically these names mean spirit (fire), breath (air), body (earth) and blood (water). These symbolize spirit, mind, body and soul, which are the four principles that vitalize the material body during the earth life.

5 – (Five) – METAPHYSICALLY a “river” represents vital force. Human beings are the container of this force, as a “garden” symbolizes the body. The river of Genesis 2:10-14, described under number 4, represents the flow of humanity itself throughout the earth, which divides and divides until it covers all the earth. The 5 is the number of humanity with our five developed senses. The five senses are introduced in the early chapters of Genesis to indicate that the senses are essential in human creation; and therefore 5 is the number of humanity. Five plays an important part in the story of David and Goliath, “…and David chose five smooth stones out of the brook” and “David took a stone and smote the Philistine (Goliath) in the forehead. The stone sunk into the forehead and he fell to the ground, (I Samuel 17:40). The five stones represent the spiritualization of David’s senses. David believed in the indwelling God of love and had learned to depend upon the spiritual power within himself. According to a mystical legend, when David touched the five stones they became Old as one stone, thus combining the total powers of his senses. The name Testament Goliath means material power; thus the story is meant to demonstrate the power of the spiritual over the material.

6 –(Six) – THE PREPARATIONS for the emergence of humanity had all been made during the five days of creation, so on the sixth day, God made human beings. “In the image of God created He him, male and female created He them,” (Genesis 1:27). So 6 is associated with generation, motherhood, fatherhood, domesticity and service. Home, family and children are the concerns of 6; human relationships and love abound.

Moses, the first lawgiver, patterned the Ten Commandments after the Lord’s example of creating the universe in six days. “Six days shalt thou labor and do all thy work” (Exodus 20:9). Therefore 6 is related to labor and service, as shown by the sixth sign of the zodiac, Virgo.

Through love, the sixth sense is to be developed as people demonstrate their godliness. The Book of Ruth is keyed to the number 6 and to love. In Ruth 3:15, Boaz gives Ruth six measures of barley, symbolic of love and protection.

7 – (Seven) – IS THE PRINCIPLE NUMBER in the Bible; it is used in-numerable times (some say over three hundred sixty) throughout both the Old and New Testaments. “But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God… For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth…, and rested the seventh day; wherefore the Lord blessed the seventh day and hallowed it” (Exodus 20:10-11). One of the most profound examples of the use of the symbolic number 7 is related to the fall of Jericho in the Book of Joshua, 6:1-20:

And the Lord said unto Joshua, “And ye shall compass the city… and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days. “…And the priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams’ horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets…. When they make a long blast with the ram’s horn and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout, and the wall of the city shall fall down flat.”

It becomes evident that the fall of Jericho was not by warfare but rather was by the principle of the 7. Victory was achieved by means of the positive vibration of sound, which had been built up to a tremendous power.

8 – (Eight)– THE MYSTERY of the 8 is that of eternal and continuous spiral motion, which is constant throughout the universe. The life force currents sweep through the body in the form of a figure 8 Symbology following the cerebro-spinal and the sympathetic nervous systems, like radiation’s of light. This is why in deep meditation one sees a real light within. The symbol, the horizontal 8, means “as above, so below. ”It is a symbol of power. In Genesis 17:10 the rite and covenant of circumcision was to be performed on the eighth day of a man-child’s life. This was considered one of the most important covenants between God and humanity.

9 – (Nine) – IS THE ULTIMATE, containing the forces of all the other numbers. It stands for a complete cycle of growth. The nine generations from Adam to Noah and from Noah to Abraham indicate stages of growth and development. Noah was the ninth from Adam, and Abraham was the ninth from Noah. When Abram received his covenant from God and his new name, Abraham, he was “ninety and nine years old” (Genesis 17:1-5). Symbolically, his age reduces to a 9, to indicate that this was a period of time in which a spiritual cycle had been completed. The addition of the Hebrew Heh (H) to Abram’s name carries a 9 vibration as well.

New Testament – Numerology Symbology

In the first four books of the New Testament, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, the writers express their Christian teachings mostly by allegory and parable. These are meant to be interpreted in various ways; some apply to the cosmic world as a whole, some to our solar system, some to the entire human race and some to individuals. Since a person is called the microcosm within the macrocosm, an individual represents, in miniature, all that is, was and will be.

As in the Old Testament, symbology is used also to point out significant hidden meanings in names and numbers. The art and science of numerology is one of the most obvious methods employed, although a deep understanding of the basic meanings of numbers is necessary for a complete unraveling of inner meanings. The New Testament describes the path of faith. Faith is the conscious acceptance of wisdom and love. When faith is strong the mind is at peace and the body is free of tension. Faith is a mystical conviction that God is presently a power within the individual. The instinct to believe is as strong as the instinct to survive, impelling one to search for a philosophy to sustain one’s hopes and desires on the journey through life. It is said that primitive people were mystics by instinct and that modern people are mystics by intuition. In Christian teachings Christ is the revelation of the love and forgiveness of God. The Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:17) is the code of mystic Christianity, and it is in the faithful heart that the Sermon is understood.

The twelve disciples of Jesus represent an extension of the twelve new tribes of Israel. The seventy-two other disciples correspond to the six Testament elders chosen from each of the original twelve tribes.

The Pythagorean dodecahedron (a twelve-sided symmetrical figure, which can be compared to the twelve lines of the Divine Triangle) represents the universe as related to humanity. This indicates that the individual has within himself the potential of the twelve powers as they relate to the inherent attributes within the twelve signs of the zodiac. The search for knowledge is motivated by the desire to understand the self in relation to God.

The New Testament writers symbolically applied all the basic numbers to express their ideas, but made more references to specific numbers relating to the seven-fold human body, to the divine potential of the human mind and soul and to spiritual destiny. Many years elapsed between the writing of the Old and New Testaments, which allowed time for much expansion of human consciousness. As a result, many more meanings for the numbers had accrued. The use of symbolism had grown and was liberally employed as a means of revelation.

1 – (One) – Is THE ZERO made more manifest; it is the self, independence and unity. “In the beginning was the Word… and the Word was God” (John 1:1). 1 is the basis or cause of a beginning; it is a start, a creative idea for expression.

2 – (Two) – ENCOMPASSES ALL PAIRS of opposites —male and female, spirit and matter, heaven and hell. “No man can serve two masters… ye cannot serve God and Mammon,” (Matthew 6:24). There is always a choice to be made between the pairs of opposites; thus we are warned that in duality there is danger. “A house divided against itself shall not stand,” (Matthew 12:25). But, “If two agree, it shall be done,” (Matthew 18:19).

3 – (Three) – SYMBOLIZES THE TRINITY, triad and trine—the three dimensions. In a larger sense, the 3 stands for multiplication and growth. Three of the disciples went with Jesus into the garden of Gethsemane. They were Peter, James and John; these three stand for light, life and love. “And Jesus went apart and prayed three times…, each time He returned to find them asleep.” The inner meaning is that Jesus felt that light, life and love were forsaking Him, as He said in His prayer, “Father let this cup pass from me, nevertheless, Thy will be done” (Matthew 26:37-45; Mark 14:32-41). Jesus asked Peter three times, “Lovest thou me?” (John 21:15-17). The three inquiries refer to love on the three planes of consciousness — the conscious mind, the subconscious mind and the super conscious mind. “If two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them,” (Matthew 18:20). This also refers to the three parts of the mind, and avers that if all agree, the Christ power will prevail.

The story of Jesus is a story of 3’s. He rose after three days and he was denied thrice by Peter. The fact that Jesus was crucified between two thieves is symbolic of the divided system of belief, which has stolen many of the true teachings. Christ sat down with the twelve, a higher vibration of 3. Judas bargained for thirty pieces of silver, again a vibration of 3.

4 – (Four) – STANDS FOR LAW and order, measurement, the physical and material realms, reason, logic, the square and the cross. Whenever a number is made up of straight lines, it symbolizes the divine principle; therefore the 4 and the 7 are called sacred numbers. The symbols are the square and the cross. The cross is always a sacred symbol wherever found.

Traditionally, the equal-armed cross, represented man. With the coming of Christ, the horizontal line of the cross was raised from the umbilical center to the heart center. It is not necessarily a Christian symbol; other spiritual leaders have died on the cross such as Krishna of India, Thamus of Syria, Hesus of the Druids, Mithra of Persia and Quexalcotl of Mexico.

“And He was there in the wilderness forty days tempted by Satan; and was with the wild beasts, and the angels ministered unto him,” (Mark 1:13). 40 is used in a Scripture to indicate a completed cycle of retreat from things of the world in preparation for something better to follow.

On the morning of the fourth day after he died, Lazarus (meaning lack of spiritual understanding) lay in the tomb, bound hand and foot, with grave clothes wound around him. The fourth dawning day is when spiritual understanding shall release us from the grave of materialism and bring awakening to the one light.

“At the fourth watch, just as gray dawn was breaking, they beheld one walking on the water,” (Matthew 14:25). This refers metaphorically to the dawning of Aquarian Age, the age of community.

5 – (Five) – STANDS FOR MEDIATION, understanding and judgment. The ancients represented the world by the number 5, the explanation being that in 5 are represented the four elements earth, water, fire and air, plus the fifth essence, ether or spirit. Five became the number of humanity with the five developed senses. It is the great senses, after which the sixth sense intuition develops.

The five wounds of Christ symbolize the suffering endured while in the flesh, which leads us to turn to God. In the parable of the five wise and the five foolish virgins (Matthew 25:3), “They that were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them. But the wise took oil in Testament their vessels with their lamps.” The oil relates to the anointed, or those who had light. Human beings can choose the light or reject it by their actions. Interestingly, the word oil is a 9-powered word, which means a completed cycle of attainment.

6 – (Six) – IS THE NUMBER OF BALANCE, harmony, cooperation, marriage, connubiality and beauty. “And there were set there six water pots of stone” (John 2:6) for the wedding feast. A wedding represents love (as does the number 6) at its most blissful state in earthly consciousness. The 6 expresses universal love, for out of the sorrows of personal love, the soul awakens to the higher life, which leads to illumination or adeptship. Jesus’ first miracle changed six pots of water to wine.

7 – (Seven) – Is THE NUMBER OF REST, cessation but not ceasing, safety, and the full measure of the triad and the quaternary. One of the greatest heritages from the Christian Scriptures is the seven-fold path of the Lord’s Prayer. The seven statements express the triad and the quaternary (Matthew 6:9-13):

1. Our Father which art in heaven,
2. Hallowed be Thy Name.
3. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
4. Give us this day our daily bread, and
5. Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.
6. Lead us not into temptation,
7. But deliver us from evil.

The final statement (“For Thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory, forever”) was added much later to symbolize return to the heavenly state.

8 – (Eight) – STANDS FOR INVOLUTION AND EVOLUTION, for cycles of ebb and flow, infinity, rhythm, advancement, strength and confidence.

The 8 is not a primary number in the New Testament. Rather, we find the 8 figures heavily in the eight-fold path of the Buddha and in occult literature.

9 – (Nine) – REFERS TO COMPLETION, attainment, fulfillment, regeneration and revelation. Many words in the Bible are used for their symbolic meanings and teachings mystically concealed. Bread and wine are usually linked together. Bread is a 3-powered word; wine is a 6-powered word; together they form a symbol of the 9-power of regeneration. Thus the serving of bread and wine means that one is to partake of a regenerative process when taking communion.

In the Book of Revelation there are two numbers whose meanings have caused much discussion. These two numbers, the 666 and the 144,000 both vibrate to a 9. The 144,000 who were sealed as members of the Tribes of Israel refer to developed or saved humanity. The seal refers to the protective “sign in their foreheads,” (Revelations 9:4). The 666, described as the “number of the beast” (Revelations 13:18), refers to humanity functioning at the materialistic un-regenerated level. Thus these two numbers mystically refer to the evolution of humanity, either as ‘lost” (666) or “saved” (144,000). Humanity, symbolically called the “Hand of God,” demonstrates the same principle. Hand is a 9-powered word and refers to humanity as one of God’s helpers in bringing forth His Kingdom.

The nine statements of blessing in the Sermon on the Mount, which show a completed cycle, represent the essence of the New Testament teaching that the greatest of all power is love. Love is a 9-powered word. “He that loveth not, knoweth not God, for God is love,” (I John 4:8). “God is love, and he that dwelleth in love, dwelleth in God, and God in him,” (I John 4:16). In the ninth hour – the hour of prayer – Christ on the cross said, “It is finished,” (John 19:30).

The numbers 12 and 13 hold a special place in both the Old and New Testaments.

12 – (Twelve) – THERE WERE Twelve Tribes of Israel who were the sons of Jacob. When Jacob gave his blessing to his twelve sons, he was referring not only to twelve individuals, but also to the development of twelve attributes to be awakened in the human soul. These paralleled the twelve characteristics of the twelve signs of the zodiac (Genesis 49:1-28). The work of these twelve sons dominated most of the Old Testament. Each tribe expressed the qualities of one sign of the zodiac and responded to a certain number. No tribe was wholly good or bad. These twelve signs and their corresponding numbers are operative in the lives of every individual, for each person indeed is a miniature universe.

Jesus chose to have twelve apostles. These also relate in character to the twelve signs of the zodiac to make a complete gathering of types of people in the inner circle of followers of Jesus. Thus the vibrational force under the number 12 belongs to the developed soul who has accumulated unusual inner strength through many and varied experiences.

13 – (Thirteen) – IS A NUMBER of special significance. Note that there were twelve apostles, but Jesus, the Christ, made a thirteenth member at the Last Supper. 12 is the number of solar New months in the year, but 13 is the number of lunar months. While the Testament solar vibrations are positive-creative in type, the lunar vibrations are negative-receptive in type. Each, as a reflection of God, is equally important.

13 means either death through degeneration, or life and attainment through regeneration. There are no halfway measures in 13; it requires all or nothing. If 13 is your number, face it and win! “Choose ye this day whom ye will serve,” (Joshua 24:15). In Deuteronomy 30:16, Moses said, “See, I have set before thee this day life and good — or death and evil — therefore choose life, and both thou and thy seed shall live.

Incarnation in the flesh represents the soul’s burial in matter, where it loses the power it originally had in the ethereal realm where it was created to be a companion to God. Eating of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil leads to spiritual, not physical, death. When the soul turns from God to self it figuratively dies. We wander about on earth in the flesh, as prodigal sons and daughters, victims of spiritual amnesia. The prodigal, even as you and I went from the father’s home of his own free will; the father did not send him.

Both the Old and the New Testaments contain numerous instances of the use of numerological symbols in the form of parable and allegory. Because every number and letter has a dual meaning, hidden messages are discernible to readers who understand the number-letter codes employed in biblical times.

In addition, there are three levels of meaning or knowledge, which the reader can acquire. The first level comes through the conscious mind and applies to the material or physical world. The second level is absorbed through the subconscious mind and is acquired by means of parables and symbols. The third level deals with revelations on the super-conscious plane of thought and affirms that we must rediscover whom we are from within.

The Bible is the story of humanity and its generations (growth and attainment), of its degeneration (the prodigal who left his father’s house forgetful of his divinity) and of its regeneration through the possible path of return to the consciousness within which proclaims, “Thy Will be done.”

Stop Sneaking Around & Go Straight Ahead


No matter what profession one may choose, there is generally a list of requirements that MUST be recognized and adhered to if one is to become successful in the field of study they have undertaken.  Employers perform background checks in order to match what people place on their resume´ to the job requirements. 

I must tell you, that you cannot do God’s work any old kind of way.  God will make sure that you have the right credentials to represent him before the world.  God will close doors that you are not qualified to enter into because you tried to get into the room through a window, down through the chimney, or maybe even up through the floor by punching a hole in the center of it.  God will not allow you to come into the kingdom but one way and that one way is at the door.  You cannot sneak up on God and try to know someone to get you in.  You cannot just waltz into a ministry for God thinking you are qualified and God has not called you into that ministry. 

Just because something looks good in someone else’s life does not mean that it is your calling or your destiny from God.  God does not call the qualified; He qualifies the ones he called.  When God qualifies you, it will show in your walk, your talk, your attitude towards others, and most of all when you minister to God’s people.  You cannot come to God any old kind of way wanting to do God’s work.  You must come to God at the door.  Any other way would be uncivilized and considered thievery.
