Babylonian Mysteries Pt 5

Other Pagan Symbols

The Triangle, Hexagram and Pyramid

1) The Triangle was a primary form of the pyramid and a sacred symbol. In Egyptian stellar mythology, Shu (a god) first lifted up the heaven from the earth in the form of a triangle and at each point was situated one of the gods, Sut, Shu and Horus, the unholy trinity. The triangle with its point facing downward represented Horus, the sun god, while the triangle pointing upward was Sut, or Set, the destroyer god. Later in history, the Egyptians changed the names of the three gods to Osiris, the father god, Isis, the mother goddess, and Horus, their son. (Ra was the sun god). The “female triangle of life” is the universal sign of the mother goddess. The triangle is also used by other cultures with other gods names e.g. Baal, Remphan.

2) The pyramid is a symbol used in Egypt, Central America and the United States. It symbolizes society. The bottom represents the poor. As it goes higher and gets smaller, it represents in succession, the middle and upper classes. The capstone represents the elite Brotherhood whose job it is to control and keep an eye on the masses underneath. It is supposed to have power to channel energy as well as provide a connection to the spirit world to the one inside it.

3) All ancient heathen worship of the sun gods had as a part of its philosophies, phallicism. Phallicism is the veneration and worship of the male and female sexual organs. The union of male and female is symbolized in several symbols in witchcraft. The first is the hexagram which is two triangles uniting.

4) The hexagram is an ancient magical sign of immense evil. The Mexican Indian centuries before seeing a white man, had the hexagram as the symbol of their phallic worship of the cosmic gods.

5) King David never had the Star of David (hexagram) as his emblem. It was first adopted from witchcraft by some Jewish priests who had explored the Babylonian religion during their captivity in Babylon. The product of this union of Judaism and witchcraft is called Kaballah. It became the national symbol of Israel in the last century or so as Zionism came into existence.

The Circle

1) The disk and in particular the circle were well-known symbols of the sun god. The circle being a figure which returns into itself and having neither beginning nor end, has been adopted in the symbolism of all countries and times as a symbol sometimes of the universe and sometimes of eternity. The circle is used in combination with many other symbols and used as the basic form of many other symbols in paganism and witchcraft. E.g. the sun, the yin/yang, the dot in the circle, the halos around the god’s heads, etc. In the mythology of the primitive world, the serpent is universally represented by the symbol of the sun. (This would seem to reinforce the idea that Satan is the angel of the sun, as he is also the serpent). It was also represented by the circle or disk. The Ouroboros is a circular serpent biting its own tail. This can be found in Masonic symbols and other pagan group symbols. The circle with a dot in it is a phallic symbol of the sun god. This symbol is also found in the Masonic symbols. The yin/yang is a symbol representing male/female as well as light/darkness. The curve separating the two is an “S”. In t’ai chi the yin-yang symbolizes “the One”. Drawing the circle is the first step a witch takes before casting a spell. A coven stands in a circle. The Romans threw Christians to the lions at the circus. Pagan temples are often circular.

The All-Seeing Eye

1) The origin of this symbol comes from the Egyptian mother goddess religion. Hathor, the sun-eye goddess came out of the dark with her piercing eye. She was the Mistress of the Vulva (sexual worship), the goddess of drunkenness, partying, dance, music, sexuality, and fertility. She was the Cow Goddess (mistress of the Bull God) and as the sun’s eye, uncovered the rebellious and punished them. This is the same Cow Goddess made and worshiped by the Israelites in the desert. The sun god with his all-seeing eye later became know as Horus. It is this eye that appears on the separated capstone of the pyramid on our dollar bill. (The separation means that the ultimate leader for the Novus Ordo Seclorum or in English, New Order of the Ages, otherwise known to us as the New World Order (sound familiar?) has yet to come and establish the one world government. Possibly it is starting to become clear why we had to start this end time study in Genesis. This is all going to play a very large part in understanding what is going on.

2) More significance to the eye is found in the Hindu and New Age religions where it represents the invisible third eye, the Agni, or Ajna Center behind the center of the forehead, the chakra. This point is the communication point between man and the ascended masters, Lucifer, or whatever name they put to it. It is an initiation point of transformation into the “evolved” man giving them an all-seeing, all-knowing eye into the universal intelligence.

The Wheel or Swastika

1) The swastika, a sign of Lucifer or the sun deity, originated in ancient Babylon and is found in all ancient pagan cultures. It is found in Hinduism, the Aztecs, North American Indians, and Druids as well as Hitler’s use of it. It can be a spinning sun, a spinning wheel, a broken and twisted cross as well as the well-known swastika design. The Nazi swastika is the “left path” or black magic design. (points clockwise) The “right path” is the white magic design. (points counter-clockwise).

The Ankh

1) The Egyptian ankh is a symbol of eternal life or immortality. It is a circle atop a cross.

The Pentagram

1) The five pointed star has several representations. The five points can stand for: air, water, fire, earth, and the spirit of the pagan god and goddess who created the universe. It can also stand for the five senses, or the dominance of the divine spirit in man with the head, two arms and legs as points. A white star represents the male and a black star the female. A star with one point up means white magic, a star with two points or horns up represents black magic or open devil worship. Some occultists do not believe there is a Satan, hence the distinction between white and black magic.

Other symbols

1) The goat/bull/horns (two points up) represents Satan.

2) The dragon/serpent represents Satan.

3) The peace sign - in many covens before a witch can be initiated into the arts of witchcraft, an initiate, if not born into a family of witches, must take a ceramic cross and turn it upside down, then break the cross-bar downwards to show a rejection of Christ.

Old Age/New Age symbols

The following are not only old age occult symbols, but are experiencing a new life under the New Age religion.

1) The lotus - symbolizes the female vulva of the mother goddess.

2) The diamond - symbolizes the male organ of the ancient father god of paganism. When a New Ager speaks of the “diamond entering the lotus” during religious initiation ceremonies, he is referring to sexual intercourse as a holy (unholy) ritual.

3) The crystal - is used to focus energy to contact spirit guides, etc.

4) Mythological creatures - the unicorn, the Pegasus, the centaur, the mermaid.

5) The rainbow - This sign given by God as a symbol of his covenant with man has been corrupted for use in the present day. i.e. The Rainbow Coalition, the Rainbow Curriculum. Its meaning is :Luciferians are building a rainbow bridge between man and the over-soul (Lucifer).

Use of these symbols in our present government:

The Trilateral Commission uses the logo of an interlocking system of three arrows designed to suggest the number 6, creating a symbol of 666. The sixes are situated in a sort of triangular shaped circle with the arrow pointing to the center.

The Council on Foreign Relations has as its logo a naked rider on a white horse. He defiantly gestures the occultic symbol of el Diablo (the horned devil). He is in a black circle.

The symbol 666 is used in stylized forms in so many things that to list them all would take a great deal of time and space. If one goes to Youtube and does some research on 666, one can see exactly how many things use this symbol.

Use of the 666 in Christianity

Lastly, the New Kings James Version of the Bible has as its logo interlocking loops in a design that looks like three abstract sixes in a triangular configuration. We need to really be careful about the versions of the Bible we are using, as we have to consider who is doing the translating and or publishing. This is definitely another Bible study topic. * I have since done this Bible study and it can be found at this link

While this is quite a list of things, it is by no means a complete list. Entire books are dedicated to listing the symbolism and secrets of the occult, much of which has found its way into Christianity.

I know this has probably offended a number of people who embrace their church's traditions, as it did me when I saw how many of my own church's traditions and symbols were occultic. What you have to decide is, does it matter to you whether you are worshiping God in a compromised Christianity with pagan practices or not? If not, then I am not your conscience and what you do is between you and God. If, on the other hand you see, as I did, how far from God's ways we have strayed, and you are disturbed by these pagan practices, I urge you to pray to God to find out what He would like you to do about it. It took me a number of years to walk away from my traditions, and some of the beliefs I held, and to embrace the Bible alone as my guide to learn who God is and how to worship Him. It is not an easy thing to do, you will struggle enormously, and it will be quite painful, not only in the sense of abandoning your upbringing and religious training, but you may incur the displeasure and antagonism of your family and friends. Matthew 10:35-38 " For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me." The reward on the other hand is tremendous. I can say that from experience. The incredible joy and peace that comes from knowing you are closer to God and pleasing Him is something that one cannot describe. I still have a long way to go, but the journey is an ever more joyful experience.

I stand with Joshua. You will have to decide where you will stand. Joshua 24:14-15 "Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD. And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."
