Military Headquarters Steeped In Occult Symbolism
By: Guardian Angel
People involved in the occult want us to believe the pentagram symbol is completely innocent. But its deep occult roots are well-documented.
One of the most blatant examples of this is the Pentagon building in Washington, D.C. As it turns out, the Pentagon is admittedly a pentagram. And why that matters might surprise you.
This little trip down a deep rabbit hole begins with a job advertisement for a reporter for a military newspaper. The name of the newspaper is, of all things, “Pentagram.”
But why would a military newspaper choose that name?
Pentagram Editor James Goodwin gives this explanation:
“This is a question we get now and then, so it is fitting to provide an answer,” he writes the U.S. Army’s official home page. “According to a mission statement document, the name is derived from the Greek word “Pente,” meaning “five,” in reference to the Pentagon. The word ‘gram’ is from the ancient Greek suffix ‘gramma,’ meaning something written, drawn or otherwise noted.”
So the Pentagon is really a representation of a pentagram.
Goodwin closes by saying the paper has no intention of changing its name. The paper has been around since 1949, first operating under the name The Fort Myer Post.
The pentagram is a well-known symbol of New Age, Wicca and Satanism, although each of these adhere to different practices and beliefs. Additionally, the pentagram is favorite of secret societies and Freemasonry, author and conspiracy theorist Texe Marrs reports in his book, “Mystery Mark of the New Age.”
Marrs suspects the pentagram could be a mark of the anti-Christ system.
“The New Age has definite plans to include the pentagram star in its initiation ceremonies during which all of mankind is to be demonized and obey the image of the beast in receiving the mark of the beast on the forehead or right hand,” he writes.
Satanists invert the star so its point faces downward, symbolizing the luciferian Baphomet head with horns. In this position, the pentagram is also called the “goblin’s cross, devil’s sign, a wizard’s star, and the footprint of the devil,” Marrs writes. It also may be used for black magic intended to conjure demons or cause calamity.
Still, some people defend the use of the symbol.
“Well, while it is true that some so-called Satanists have adopted this symbol that does not make a five-pointed star ‘Satanic,’ ” writes by Bro. James W. Maertens, of the Harriett Lodge No. 277 in Minneapolis, Minn. “The pentagram is not a major symbol in Freemasonry, but where it does appear it is usually interpreted as a symbol of the five senses, which are given treatment in the Fellow-craft degree as one of the mystic meanings of the number five.”
Maertens goes on to write: “It is a symbol with its roots in alchemy and in the ancient mysteries.”
In other words, it relates witchcraft or the occult.
The Order of the Eastern Star, a women’s Masonic organization, uses the inverted pentagram (left) for its logo. Again, why? To the right is the satanic inverted pyramid.
When pentagrams are displayed upright, they often symbolize “esoteric” studies or “white magic.” Followers of white magic maintain the pentagram represents man or the elements of earth, air, fire, and water.
People have the free will to believe and practice what they choose, as long as they do not break any laws. But there is no such thing as “white magic” for Christians.
Followers of these systems often believe symbols have power and can help them “make things happen.” Some even believe they can control the weather and daily events.
Recruits into these systems are often deceived into believing they are simply empowering themselves if they used their “power” solely for “good.”
The following verses show that sorcery is an abomination before God:
2 Chronicles 33:6
“He made his sons pass through the fire in the valley of Ben-hinnom; and he practiced witchcraft, used divination, practiced sorcery and dealt with mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord, provoking Him to anger.”
“When you enter the land which the Lord your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the detestable things of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritualist, or one who calls up the dead.
In 2015, The Washington Times reported that some Christians felt the military was hostile to them because of their beliefs.
