"For they are the spirits of DEVILS, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty." Revelation 16:14.

"the first camouflage he used to deceive Adam and Eve was the serpent.
The very thing Satan used to deceive Adam and Eve became eventually one of the most sacred symbols of Sun worship!
Instead of the serpent as being a symbol of Satan and deception, as the Bible instructs, the serpent became a symbol of the "Great Benefactor and Healer" of mankind. The serpent was worshipped as the "God of Healing" and "Life-Restorer."
"YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE," Genesis 3:3, was Lucifer's first lie to our first parents.
The serpent, the god of healing, was generally represented in the pagan arts entwined on a stick, staff or a stock of a tree.
Here we find the origin of the strange symbol that the American Medical Association (AMA) uses today.
This medical insignia was originally the symbol of the Egyptian god Hermes, who was Nimrod's father, Cush.
And it's here we find the origin of the word hermetic.
This ancient word found in classical literature actually derived from the ancient Egyptian god of medicine.
This name is actually Chaldean and the Greeks and Egyptians adopted this god from the Babylonians.
The very word hermetic means the hidden knowledge of magic, occult sciences, etc.
Not only was the serpent worshipped by the ignorant pagans as "The Great Benefactor" for mankind, the serpent ironically enough was worshipped also as "The Great Enlightener."
What did Satan say to Adam and Eve besides, "Ye shall not surely die?"

In The Two Babylons, by Hislop, p. 227, we read the following:
"Along with the sun, as the great fire-god, and, in due time, identified with him, was the serpent worshipped.
In the mythology of the primitive world, says Owen, 'the serpent is universally the symbol of the sun.
In Egypt, one of the commonest symbols of the sun, or sun god, is a disc with a serpent around it.
The original reason of that identification seems just to have been that, as the sun was the great enlightener of the physical world, so the serpent was held to have been the great enlightener of the spiritual, by giving mankind the 'Knowledge of Good and Evil.' '"
The ancient Mayans of the Yucatan in Mexico worshipped the serpent god under the name of Can.
Can means "serpent" in the Mayan language, as Can or A-Can was the ancient Sumerian and ancient Scottish word for serpent.
Here we find the origin of our word canny, shrewd or serpent-like.
The Babylonians worshipped Can the serpent and Vul, the god of fire.
The Romans simply combined the two words into 'Vulcan," the Roman god of fire from when also comes our word "volcano".
This seems to be how the Mayans and Mexicans named their gods.
They too combined two words to describe their serpent god. "Kulkul" means "beautiful bird," and "Can," serpent.
Hence, "Kulkulcan," which means "Bird Serpent" in the Mayan language.
This is the exact same meaning for Quetzalcoatl, the Mexican pagan messiah in central Mexico.
Interestingly enough, the cosmic symbol for Quetzalcoatl was a feathered serpent!

The origin of the word "Vatican" also derived from two words.
The Latin word "vatic" or "vatis" means "prophet or soothsayer".
The combined word, "Vatican," appears to mean "divination by the serpent"!
The symbol for Astrology is often shown in pagan arts as a serpent in a circular position with his tail in his mouth. This represented eternal life.
There is the strong evidence from Scripture that the serpent originally had wings and flew, instead of having legs as evolution might imply.
The Scriptures reveal it was a curse for the serpent to travel on his belly as he does now.
"And the Lord God said unto the serpent, because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field: upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life." Genesis 3:14
Hence, that feathered serpent that has been displayed in pagan arts and worshipped as the god of healing, is none other but "that Old Serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world." Revelation 12:9.

The goat, from antiquity, symbolized the Devil.
The goat, known for its agility, stubborn character and having its own way, is what Astrologers say people are who are born under the sign of Capricorn, the He-Goat.
Witches in the Middle Ages were widely reputed to worship the Devil in the form of a goat...
In southern Europe the site where the witches met was called a synagogue; in Germany it was called a blocksberg...
At the rendezvous Satan appeared as a black animal, often a goat, or as a man with cloven feet.
Ancient Witchcraft has been revived and modernized among the young people today.
And, it is the religion of some of those who control the wealth of the world!
There are millions of both male and female witches here in the United States alone.
Witchcraft is the biggest rival religion of Christianity in England and America.
These modern witches exalt the horn gods and the pagan goddesses such as the Egyptian pagan trinity Osiris, Isis, Horus, which originated in the worship of Nimrod (the Sun), his wife Semiramis (the moon), and Tammuz (the Morning Star).
Pan or Bacchus is another god the witches exalt and worship.
How was this ancient pagan god displayed in pagan art?
He had a man's head with horns and cloven feet!

Most of these modern day witches claim to be good witches as in The Wizard of Oz...
The main feature of Wicca is, however, nature worship.
Just as the ancient Baal worshippers in Babylonia believed it was the cosmic Star gods that were responsible for pouring out the rain from Heaven and caused fertility among the plants and mankind...
The word Baal, so often seen throughout the Old Testament, was used to describe a god.
The word means "Lord" or "Master" and in the Bible it was the name for the Sun-god.
Now, kings of pagan nations often were considered the incarnation of the Sun-god, and to identify with the Sun-god the kings would adopt the name of his god as Jezebel's father did in 1.Kings 16:31.
His name was "Ethbaal" which means "with Baal" or "Baal's man".
...On nights of the full moon and other festivals, the High Priest of witchcraft performs a ritual known as "Drawing Down the Moon."
This is taught to new members to explain how the High Priestess becomes the incarnation of the Moongoddess.
... After their spells are cast, the witches settle down to a ceremony that is similar to the holy communion held for the Egyptian god Osiris.
However, instead of a round disk wafer that was an Egyptian symbol of the sun, some modern day witches make cakes in the shape of a five pointed star called the Pentagram.
This to the occultist is one of the most powerful weapons in magic.
The Pentagram symbolism is based on that of the number five which according to Astrology, stands for the living world of nature, such as Air, Fire, Water, Earth, and the Spirit of their god and pagan goddess who used the elements, according to witchcraft, to create the Universe.
The number five in Astrology also represents the four directions and the center, for the five senses (smell, taste, sight, touch and hearing).
Witchcraft, like all forms of Spiritualism, teaches man is a microcosm (miniature universe); man is the ruler of nature, and as the miniature image, the potential master of all things.
So, the Pentagram (five pointed star) with one of its points projecting upwards is imagined in Witchcraft as a man's body with arms and legs extended, and is a symbol of the dominance of the divine spirit.
It is used as a magical weapon for invoking good influences and keeps the evil spirits at bay, say those who practice white magic.
... Instead of the satanic evil looking people of the Middle Ages, the witches of today have been, for the past century, portrayed as good people, who fight against the evil forces of this world, such as "Wonder Woman," with her sign of white magic (the Pentagram) displayed on her forehead.
But to distinguish the bad witches from the good witches, say the occultists, a reversed Pentagram with two points upward is a symbol of Black Magic, and of those who do worship the Devil.
The two points of the star pointed upwards suggests the horns of the Devil symbolized as a goat attacking the Heavens with his horns.
This five pointed star which has two points upward was, and is today, worn as an amulet by open Devil worshippers, and by many modern day magicians and wizards.
Originally this evil sign was worn to show Satan that they had chosen him as their leader.
Freemasons, and the ladies who call themselves "The Order of the Eastern Star" display this evil sign in their lodges.

In some covens the cakes they use in their communion are made into the shape of a crescent, which is the symbol of the Moon-goddess.
These cakes are made of salt, honey, wine, meal, oil and, in some covens, blood.
They are eaten in honour of the Egyptian god Horus or whatever god the coven exalts.
In ancient witchcraft the cakes were round with a cross drawn on them that represented the first letter of the name of the ancient dead and risen pagan messiah "Tammuz," who was the incarnation of the Sun-god and the son of the Moon-goddess (the Queen of Heaven).
Even the Israelites, when they turned from the worship of our Creator made these same cakes that honoured the pagan queen of Heaven and her god-child Tammuz.
In Jeremiah 7:18 our Lord condemned this ancient ritual in the worship of these cosmic gods:
"The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger."
Today, the Roman Catholic Church dedicates these same cakes to the Virgin Mary whom they ironically call the Queen of Heaven. These cakes are called by Roman Catholic "Hot Cross Buns".
The name of this pagan goddess the Israelites worshipped and dedicated these cakes to is found in Judges 2:13.
Her name to the Israelites was Ashtaroth. To the early Romans her name was Venus, the goddess of love.

Witchcraft is just another word for Spiritualism, but the modern word used to cover-up the evil name of Witchcraft so it may be taught in Colleges is "Parapsychology."
Now, to understand this other abomination found in both ancient and modern Witchcraft, the reader must understand that it was the Sun-god and Moon-goddess who created the whole Universe, according to these witches.
To honour this pagan belief, a ritual called "The Great Rite" is strictly observed among these socalled "good" witches.
Since the High Priest in a coven is believed to be the incarnation of Pan, the Sun-god, and the High Priestess is the incarnation of the Queen of Heaven, the Moon-goddess, these two mimic the myth in the creation of the Universe by the Sun-god and the Moon-goddess when they perform "The Great Rite" ritual, which is engaging in sacred prostitution.
This is justified by the witches on the grounds of fertility, because after all, they say, Wicca is a fertility cult.

This abominable practice of sacred prostitution found today in modern witchcraft is nothing new.
All ancient heathen worship of the Sun-gods had within its philosophies Phallicism.
What is Phallicism? It is the veneration and worship of male and female sex organs.
The union of male and female organs is symbolized in witchcraft as a point within a circle, and also as two triangles uniting to make a "Hexagram" better known today as the "Star of David."
The truth is, King David of Israel never carried this emblem that is now the symbol of Israel.
This emblem was adopted from witchcraft by some Jewish priests who had explored deep into the Babylonian religion during their captivity in Babylon.
From here sprang witchcraft in another garb called the Cabala.
The Mexican Indian, centuries before seeing a white man, had the Hexagram as the symbol of their phallic worship of the cosmic gods.
Often the Hexagram is displayed as a symbol of the 7 planets that serpentine their way through the Zodiac.
The Sun in the center is displayed in a circle with a point in its center.

Usually before these modern day witches partake of the cake and wine to honour Horus or Pan, as we examined in part one of this chapter, a ceremony for any new initiates into their coven is performed...initiates are whipped...
The five-fold kiss is bestowed by the High Priest or Priestess on the feet, knees, genitals, breasts and lips of a new member.

The believer who has chosen the God of the Bible is promised protection from those who practice Voodooism and spell casting. Numbers 23:23: "Surely there is no ENCHANTMENT (Witchery) against Jacob, neither is there any DIVINATION against Israel."

The ancient pagans believed that when they died their souls flew up to the Heavens and took possession of one of the stars.
The chief gods of the Zodiac, which were but emanations of the Sun-god, all HAD A SACRED NUMBER.
However, to help us understand why this mysterious number 666 was given to John the Apostle in Revelation 13:18, warning us not to be identified with it, it is necessary now to examine some ancient pagan numerology.

Ancient Astrology teaches that one of the sacred numbers of the Chief god of the Zodiac (the sun) was the number one.
The Sun symbol was a Heavenly Bull and a serpent.
Since Babylon was the birth place of Astrology and the rest of Idolatry, we will see how this Babylonian system of gods and goddesses spread throughout the ancient world and has penetrated into modern culture today.
Originally, the letters of the various alphabets had, and still have to some extent, a numerical significance.
The English language has lost track of this, for there are no numbers that identify with each letter of our alphabet.
But, the first letter of the alphabet in many languages still carries with it a reference to the Sun-god (one) whose main symbol was either a serpent or a bull.
Take, for instance, the first letter in the Hebrew and Chaldee alphabet. It was a symbol of a bull.
The Greek word aleph (alpha) is the name of the first letter in their alphabet, and it means bull or ox.
It is interesting to note that the ever-revered bullgod of the Orient (the elephant) has the same root (eleph) in his name, and almost every Hindu temple has its phallic idol to commemorate the lifegiving qualities of their god (one).
So to honour the Sun, the god (one), the Heavenly Bull-god, the first day of the week (Sunday) and the first of everything was dedicated to the bull-god as sacred.
The first day of the month, the first day of the year, the first born son and the first fruits of the harvest and of the flocks, were kept sacred and dedicated to him.
Indeed, most Christians cast away the original day of the rest described in Genesis 2:1-3 (before Jews were ever heard of) for the observance of Sunday, the first day of the week!

The number 2 in ancient Astrology is considered a female number and a symbol for the Mother goddess who, according to pagan belief, is the second member of the godhead.
However, pagan philosophy teaches that the number 2 was thought upon as an evil number.
In ancient paganism, women were considered as evil and the cause of death.
Some scholars claim that our very word, evil, is eve-il.
The name of the second letter of the Hebrew Chaldean alphabet is Beth, a feminine proper name which means house.
The moon, which is the symbol of the Mother goddess, is ever considered as the monthly house of the Sun in Astrology.

The number 3 is a sacred number identified with the pagan godhead of Baal, Ishtar and Tammuz.
Sometimes the number 3 represented a triple aspect of the Sun-god as the ruler of Heaven.
While the sun appeared in the sky it was symbolized as a Heavenly Bull.
The Serpent was the symbol of the sun in the spiritual realm of things."
However, when the sun sinks into the Western ocean at the end of the day and spends the night in the realm of darkness and the dead, he then becomes the fish god, Lord of the Underworld.
The Fish-god to the Babylonians, Assyrians, and Philistines was Dagon.
This name Dagon, like Kulkulcan of the Mayans, is derived by combining two words.
Dag means Fish, and On means Sun. Hence, the part man and part fish gods worshipped in the Old World.
To the Romans he was Neptune who was ever displayed in ancient Roman arts as part man, part fish, with a pitchfork in his hand.
It was during a festival to celebrate the capture of Samson and to give thanks to Dagon for delivering Samson into the Philistines' hands that Samson pulled down the house in which the Philistines were celebrating, on himself and three thousand Philistines. Judges 16:23-31.

The High Priest of Dagon wore a robe and a mitre that resembled a fish.
This mitre the pagan priests wore is the origin of the mitre the Popes and Cardinals wear today.
This mitre that resembles a fish head was worn centuries before the birth of Christ by pagan High Priests of Dagon.

In India, their trinity is based on the 3 phases of the Sun-god.
When the sun rises in the East, he is Brahama, when he gains his meridian, he is Siva, and when he sets in the West, he becomes Vishnu.
This explains why the gods of the orient sometimes were displayed with three heads and three pairs of arms on one body. Many pagans believed in the three aspects of the Sun-god, who has 3 phases in which he travels across the sky.
Hence, the number 3 in Astrology represents the trinity in Witchcraft.

The number 4 is the sacred number in Astrology for the Sun as Ruler of the four quarters of the Universe, or the four divisions of the Zodiac, the four seasons, and the four directions.
The name of Tammuz, where the cross originally came from.
It was originally the initial T in Tammuz, which was known as the sacred Tau.
The cross was a symbol of the sun worshippers centuries before Jesus was born.
The number 4 itself is little more than a cross. Take away the angular bar and we have a cross.
No Catholic will pray a prayer or worship God until he makes the four directions across his head and body to resemble it.
That which is now called the Christian cross was originally the mystic Tau that the Chaldeans used to sacrifice a first born child to the Sun-god.
And, it was this very thing that was used to crucify Jesus on.
No greater insult could Satan give to Christ than to sacrifice Him on his own symbol of heathen worship.

We have already explored some of the reasoning behind the number 5 in Astrology such as the 5 pointed star (Pentagram), but it is the number 6 that should capture our close attention.

The hidden meaning and symbols represented by the number 6 are so involved that an entire book could be written about this number and its origin.
Here again, we explore the worship of the serpent, because the number SIX has ever been connected with the serpent.
Man and the serpent, along with the other land animals, were created on the sixth day (Genesis 1:24-31).
The words used to say SIX, sex in Latin, seis in Spanish, seks in Norwegian, shest in Portuguese, sechs in German and sas in Chaldean-Hebrew, as in most languages, start with the letter S.
The letter S derived, believe it or not, from a pictograph of a cobra, erected in its striking position.
The hissing sound of the letter S represented the voice of the serpent.
We can note that snake, serpent and Satan begin with the serpent letter S.
On the heads of cobras there are usually distinct markings in the shape of letters.
They are V, U and 0. Hence, the ancients invented names for different serpents with these letters, such as the U in Uraeus.
That was the Egyptian name for their sacred Asp, which ever appears on the forehead, or crown, of the Pharoah, who claimed to be the vicar, or the earthly incarnation, of his god.
The O occurs in the Greek Ophis, the name of the serpent whom the Gnostics worshipped. During their celebration of their Lord's Supper, they let a snake, whom they called Ophis, crawl over their bread. They became known in history as the Ophites.
