And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove (expose) them.
Ephesians 5:11 KJV
Please excuse the picture to the left.
“I thought this was a blog run by Christians, what is the logo of the After School Satan Club doing there?!” you may be wondering. “Are they promoting the clubs?” God forbid! My purpose in posting the picture is not to bring undue attention to Satan, the Satanic Temple, or to this club, but to expose some of the Satanic symbolism in the logo so that many are not deceived, being ignorant of Satan’s devices (2 Cor. 2:11). Many of the clubs’ spokesmen, an offshoot of The Satanic Temple, claim they don’t actually worship Satan, but that he is merely a symbol of rebellion against “arbitrary” authority, not an actual being.
I believe the symbolism in this picture says otherwise. I pray this article be used for good and not evil.
First, look at the figure’s left hand. The sign it is making is known as the Sign of the Benediction. It can be seen in early “Christian” (read: Roman Catholic) art from the Byzantine and Medieval periods, but the gesture itself precedes those eras. In pagan circles, the gesture is known as the mano pantea and was used as a charm against the “evil eye.” It invoked the protection of the “parental spirits” Isis and Osiris. Could this indicate the removal of the children from the protection of their parents and placing them under the “protection” of the demonic entities Isis and Osiris? If that is even a remote possibility, then it is the duty of parents and adults to protect the children.
In art, either Christ or the saint depicted performs the sign with their right hand, but the figure in the above cartoon logo is making it with his left. This means he is not actually pronouncing a blessing (benediction) but a curse. Moreover, the left hand has always been associated with Satanic worship and the dark side of the occult, which has often been referred to the “left hand path.” The right hand path is representative of Satanism masquerading as Christianity, but the left hand path signifies open Satanism – black magic as opposed to white magic. The left hand path is also symbolized by the inverted (upside-down) pentagram, as seen in the bottom left corner (our left) of the image.
While its left hand is pointing upward, its right hand is pointing downward, an allusion to the occultic mantra, “as above so below.” This is a key phrase in the occult, and all systems of magic are said to be based on this incantation. The formula reads, in part: “That which is above is the same as that which is below…The universe is the same as God, God is the same as man…” Man is thought of as a reflection of God in heaven, and God as a reflection of man on earth. As we become more self-aware, more in tune with our higher consciousness, it teaches that we awaken to the realization that we are gods/God. This is the same lie the Serpent told Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
“And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” (Gen. 3:4-5)
The Serpent was proven to be a liar. When Adam and Eve ate the fruit, they did die; they immediately died spiritually, as a result of their separation from God. Eventually, they died physically without ever becoming gods. This is why Jesus said Satan was a murderer from the beginning (John 8:44).
Next, notice the spiral in its right eye. The spiral represents development, change over time, or the slow revelation of things hidden. New Age websites explain how we change and develop as we age. In light of this, I find it interesting that they include a spiral in the logo of a program directed towards children. This could indicate the secrets of Satanism are progressively revealed to the children as they grow older. The Satanic Temple claims they will not actively proselytize children to Satanism in these clubs. That may or may not be true, but if the child is interested in learning more about Satanism, I believe the facilitators are both able and willing to lead them into the “depths of Satan” (Rev. 2:24). These clubs were founded to counter the Good News Clubs (GNCs) (which should automatically tell the reader whose side they are actually on) because the Satanic Temple claims GNCs “indoctrinate” (read: evangelize) children. I believe this spiral indicates they will brainwash these children, albeit deceptively. The After School Satan clubs serve and will serve the purpose of desensitizing children, subtly indoctrinating them into Satanism.
The fact that the spiral is in the right eye is also significant. It is a sign of the Antichrist. Zechariah 11:17 says, “Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! The sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.” The figure’s right eye is “darkened”, meaning the eye is not functional and cannot see, just like Zechariah’s prophecy of the Antichrist. In many of the pictures where an individual (many times a celebrity) is covering one of their eyes, it most often will be their right eye, showing their allegiance to the Antichrist and his system.
There’s so much more symbolism to expose. Like the Baphomet – their depiction of the devil; the duality represented by the black and white picture; the esoteric symbolism behind the graduation cap; their use of the candy cane to seduce children, while actually giving them a curse, and so on. But I think I have presented enough information to show that The Satanic Temple is not to be trusted and to caution public school systems against allowing these After School Satan clubs into their schools.
Lastly, why should we believe them when they say they don’t worship the devil? Why else would an organization like this call itself by the name of an entity it claims to not even worship? Doesn’t Jesus unmask Satan revealing him to be a liar by nature, a master deceiver, and the father of lies (John 8:44)? Can we therefore really expect his followers to tell the truth? Obviously not.
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
2 Corinthians 11:14-15 KJV
Other Satanists like Aleister Crowley and Anton LaVey taught Satanists should hide what they actually teach and practice. I believe these symbols, however, reveal their true agenda in plain sight. It may be easy to see these icons and dismiss the corresponding facts as coincidence. However, I believe that all these emblems present together indicate something more maleficent: they really do worship the devil. And if I’m wrong and these atheists don’t actually worship the devil, then they are sadly being used by him to accomplish his purposes. However, Jesus was revealed to defeat Satan and his works. We know He has won through the Cross of Calvary and His resurrection. Anyone who trusts in Him will be delivered from the power of Satan. “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8).
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints. Ephesians 6:10-18
