The Peace Sign And Satanism
The signal “actually began as a symbol of Satanic benediction during the rituals.” This sign has been used by Yasser Arafat, Richard Nixon, Winston Churchill, and Stewart Meacham, Co-Chairman of Reds’ New Mobilisation Committee.” Churchill said that the sign stood for victory but remember that Churchill was one of the insider “elite” and a Mason. He most likely knew the evil significance of this symbol but tried to give it a facelift.
The “v sign” has a colourful history. “V” is the Roman sign for the number five and Adam Weishaupt used it in the Illuminati to symbolise the “Law of Fives,” but there’s more. In the Cabala:
“the meaning for the Hebrew letter for V (Van) is ‘Nail.’ Now, ‘The Nail’ is one of the secret titles of Satan within the Brotherhood of Satanism. Satan is letting us know that this is one of his favourite signs. Why else does he like the PENTA-gram (Penta = five!) and the FIVE-fold salute used in Masonry and Witchcraft?”
“The Leftists, radicals, and Satanists who have popularised that sign…know its ancient significance very well. In fact, that ‘V’ sign is now used extensively by such Communist organisations as the Young Socialist Alliance, Vets for Peace in Vietnam, and the Students for a Democratic Society.”
Although not a hand sign, the peace symbol itself needs to be examined.
“Known as the ‘peace sign’ throughout the 1960’s and into the present day, this symbol is the Teutonic rune of death. 1950’s peace advocate Gerald Holtom may have been commissioned by communist sympathiser Bertrand Russell to design a symbol to unite leftist peace marchers in 1958. It is clear that either Holtom or Russell deemed the Teutonic (Neronic) cross as the appropriate symbol for their cause.
“Throughout the last 2,000 years this symbol has designated hatred of Christians. Nero, who despised Christians, crucified the Apostle Peter on a cross head downward. This hideous event resembled the Teutonic cross and became a popular pagan insignia of the day. Thereafter, this sign became known as the ‘Neronic cross.’
“The symbol’s origin in history proves it to be the visual mystic character for ‘Aum’ (the split ‘Y’). This is the sacred word to the Hindu. Chanting ‘Aum’ is supposed to help awaken ‘the serpent power of Brahma’ at the base of the human spine. Occultist Albert Pike also identifies this symbol as mystical in his book on Freemasonry Morals and Dogma.
The peace symbol (also called the “broken cross,” “crow’s foot,” “witch’s foot,” “Nero Cross,” “sign of the ‘broken Jew,'” and the “symbol of the ‘anti-Christ”’) is actually a cross with the arms broken. It also signifies the “gesture of despair,” and the “death of man.”
“The Germanic tribes who used it attributed strange and mystical properties to the sign. Such a ‘rune’ is said to have been used by ‘black magicians’ in pagan incantations and condemnations….To this very day the inverted broken cross–identical to the socialists’ ‘peace’ symbol–is known in Germany as a ‘todersrune,’ or death rune. Not only was it ordered by Hitler’s National Socialists that it must appear on German death notices, but it was part of the official inscription prescribed for the gravestones of Nazi officers of the dread SS. The symbol suited Nazi emphasis on pagan mysticism.”
With the arms of the cross raised in an upright position, it is “a Pythagorean emblem of the course of life, in the form of a rising path with fork roads to Good and Evil.” It also signifies fertility, but with the arms pointing downward, it denotes evil and death.
“In fact, the inverted ‘Man-rune’–the figure encircled in the common sign which the Communists tell us means ‘peace’–has for centuries been a favourite sign of Satanists.”
Anton LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan, used the peace symbol as the backdrop for his altar.
One former witch makes the following comment about the peace symbol:
“It is an ancient and powerful symbol of Antichrist. During the dark ages it was used in Druid Witchcraft and by Satanists of all sorts during the initiation of a new member to their order. They would draw the magic circle and give the initiate a cross. The initiate would then lift the cross and turn it upside down. He would then renounce Christianity in all three dimensions (sic) of time (past, present and future) and break the horizontal pieces downward forming the design of the ‘Raven’s Foot.’ This ugly symbol is nothing short of blasphemy against the Holy Ghost. For one to wear or display this symbol is to announce either knowingly or unknowingly that you have rejected Christ. Remember, symbolism is a picture language, and a picture is worth a thousand words.”
“This is an absolutely incredible honour,” Brooke Ligertwood, who accepted the award with Ben Fielding on stage inside Madison Square Garden, New York, ahead of the main ceremony on Sunday, said.
They received the award in the best contemporary Christian music performance/song category for What A Beautiful Name.
The award is given to artists and songwriters of new contemporary Christian pop, Christian rap/hip-hop or Christian rock singles or tracks.
“No matter how far or close you feel to God or no matter how great the distance his love is greater, his name is more powerful, more wonderful, more beautiful than any other,” Fielding said.
The win came after fellow Australians Sia Furler, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and Sydney trio Mansionair missed out on awards earlier in the ceremony.
Sydney trio Mansionair was nominated in the best dance recording category for their collaborative effort Line Of Sight with Seattle electronic duo Odesza, but they were beaten for the Grammy by LCD Soundsystem for Tonite.
Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars got off to a winning start ahead of the evening’s televised main event.
Lamar has seven nominations and started off the afternoon by winning in the Best Music Video category for Humble beating Jay-Z’s The Story Of O.J.
Pop singer Bruno Mars, who was nominated in six categories, won a trophy for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical for 24k-Magic.
The late Carrie Fisher was also a winner, posthumously awarded the Grammy Award in the Best Spoken Word Album category for The Princess Diarist.
Jay-Z, who already has 21 Grammys in his trophy cabinet, compared to Lamar’s seven, is the 2018 Grammy’s top nominee with eight nods.
The question I keep asking is, why is Hillsong accepting awards from the World, instead of rejecting them, and turning their back on these accolades?
Definition of Accolade
1a : a mark of acknowledgment : award
- received the highest accolade of his profession
b : an expression of praise
- a movie that has drawn accolades from both fans and critics
Christians should be well spoken of, and should “have a good report of them which are without.” I Tim. 3:7. Of one of Paul’s associates we read: “Demetrius hath good report of all men.” 3 John 12. This should be said of every follower of Christ.
Then why is the warning given, “Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you”?
The woe pronounced applies to those whose aim is to maintain the reputation which they may have rightly merited.
After gaining the reputation of being outstanding in his profession, a man’s danger exists in endeavoring to maintain it.
Our chief aim in life should be to “show forth the virtues [margin] of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” It is possible to so fully reveal Him that men in beholding us will see no man save Jesus only. We must exercise great care not to unduly exalt or praise those whom God is using to do a good and great work, remembering then the obvious frailties of human nature, and the tendencies of the human heart toward self-exaltation.
Paul shunned such reputation to remain faithful to God.
“Am I now seeking the approval of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ” — Gal 1:10
