Occult symbolism Intro
- Important note: The Craftiness of Ha-Satan
In 2 Corinthians 4:4, Sha’ul [Paul] referred to ha-satan as the “god of this world.” We also know from Genesis 3:1 that “the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which hwhy Elohim had made.” Just how shrewd or sly is he? Yochanan [John] wrote that as the dragon, “he deceiveth the whole world” (Revelation 12:9). Though he “is transformed into an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14), he dwells in the darkness. Yeshua said, that “he was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44). David Stern, translator of the Complete Jewish Bible, put it this way. “When he tells a lie, he is speaking in character; because he is a liar – indeed, the inventor of the lie!”
Realizing that ha-satan has inspired every system of false worship and service since the world began, and in particular, the Nimrod/Semiramis cult propagated by his mother after Nimrod’s death, we will now begin to understand just how subtle and deceptive he really has been.
But first, how does deception work? Deception often works through the use of symbols. Why is this? By focusing on the symbols people lose sight of the true meaning behind the symbols and, as a result, see no harm in their practices. Therefore, we should not be surprised that ha-satan’s deception and subtlety occurs primarily through the use of symbols. Symbols and symbolic items or emblems have always been important in religious worship of all kinds – the true as well as the false.
- Symbolism is the language of the Mysteries
Symbolism is the language of the Mysteries; in it is the language not only of mysticism and philosophy but of all Nature, for every law and power active in universal procedure is manifested to the limited sense perceptions of man through the medium of symbol. Every form existing in the diversified sphere of being is symbolic of the divine activity by which it is produced. By symbols men have ever sought to communicate to each other those thoughts which transcend the limitations of language.
Rejecting man-conceived dialects as inadequate and unworthy to perpetuate divine ideas, the Mysteries thus chose symbolism as a far more ingenious and ideal method of preserving their transcendental knowledge. In a single figure a symbol may both reveal and conceal, for to the wise the subject of the symbol is obvious, while to the ignorant the figure remains inscrutable. He who seeks to unveil the secret doctrine of antiquity must search for that doctrine not upon the open pages of books which might fall into the hands of the unworthy but in the place where it was originally concealed.
Far-sighted were the initiates of antiquity. They realized that nations come and go, that empires fall, and that the golden ages of art, science, and idealism are succeeded by the dark ages of superstition. With the needs of posterity foremost in mind, the sages of old went to inconceivable extremes to make certain that their knowledge should be preserved. They engraved it upon the face of mountains and concealed it with the measurements of colossal images, each of which was a geometric marvel.
Their knowledge of chemistry and mathematics they hid within mythologies which the ignorant would perpetuate, or in the spans and arches of their temples which time has not entirely obliterated. They wrote in characters that neither the vandalism of men nor the ruthlessness of the elements could completely efface. Today men gaze with awe and reverence upon the mighty Memnons (Pyramids) standing alone on the sands of Egypt, or upon the strange terraced pyramids of Palanque. Mute testimonies these are of the lost arts and sciences of antiquity; and concealed this wisdom must remain until this race has learned to read the universal language – SYMBOLISM. 
- Usage of Symbolism
However, it is clear some people want to associate those various symbols with their secret and subversive societies (the Black Magic). Those societies use occult symbolism:
- as a secret (or in plain sight) language of carefully hidden esoteric knowledge messages;
- to hide their social relations and agenda;
- to subversively influence the subconscious of less aware people.
Many people - (even in the higher positions) - within these societies may not be (fully) aware of the real esoteric meaning(s) of the symbolism, since that often requires in-depth knowledge of a lot of different topics: nature observations (astronomy, cataclysms, life cycles, human consciousness), early civilizations (mythology, shamanism, art, magic), technological/political/religious history, etc.
So discovering the usage of these symbols does demand further research into:
- The occurrence of these symbols (and their variations) throughout time and space.
- The meaning(s) of these symbols throughout time and space.
- The organizations that utilize/utilized these symbols, and their possible masonic history, relations and agenda.
