In order to raise public awareness about the increasing media saturation of satanic symbolism, presented here are some of the most commonly used satanic symbols being used, with a brief explanation of their origin and meaning.
1. the inverted 5 pointed star, or pentagram
The pentagram is the five pointed star with one point facing up. This symbol is used in paganism, witchcraft, freemasonry and gnosticism. It represents to pagans the 5 elements of the material universe, and also man, with four limbs and the head. So it is used in honour of and devotion or worship of nature and man. In satanism this symbol is inverted upside down to represent the rebellion or subversion of man and is known as a the “sigil of baphomet”. It also then has two points facing up, instead of one, and this is representative of the goat demon, baphomet, satan. For hundreds of years occultists have identified the symbol in this way and drawn images of the horned goat goat satan within the inverted pentagram, with the two horns, the ears within the horizontal shapes and the goatee beard within the downward pointing triangle.
2. the upside down cross
The cross of course represents Christ and his crucifixion. In satanism this is turned upside down in order to mock and dishonour Christ and his death. It is an act of disrespect and disdain for Christ, and an honouring of the opposing force to Christ, which is in rebellion to God, rather than submission.
3. the eye inside the pyramid
This image is found on the one dollar bill, but also in masonic lodges and originates from the false pagan horus in egypt. This has been labelled the “eye of providence” by those who attempt to identify it as representing God. However the Bible is very clear about not making any graven image to represent the Creator. In reality the eye is human, and represents man’s own divinity and ability to become god. In this sense the eye inside the pyramid also represents lucifer/satan/baphomet, as this was satan’s goal, to usurp the One Creator and become like God, and it was also his lie and temptation to Eve in the garden. This lie of man being god or evolving into godhood still continues in the new age, gnosticism, freemasonry and luciferianism. The pyramid represents mans journey and evolution upward until he becomes a god. This deceptive doctrine is also taught in mormonism and the seal on the symbol on the dollar bill is thought to also be the seal of the illuminati.
This is the n umber of the beast or satan from the book of revelation, so is used by satanists proudly as a sign of rebellion and identification. It is also weaved through logos in the world system to subliminally condition and infect peoples minds and spirit.
