Pentagram


It is possible that the pentagram was discovered by very early astronomical research, in the Tigris-Euphrates area, some 6000 years ago, Archaeologists have found fragments of pottery with the symbol, dating back to 4000 years ago, but it was Pythagoras who really brought the five pointed star to the prominent position it holds today.

If an apple is cut in half across its "equator" then the pattern of the seeds is revealed, a perfect five pointed star of pentagram. The repercussions of this hidden magical symbol are far reaching. Five, comprised of the feminine number 2 and the masculine number 3, is the number of harmony  of the union of opposites (for example in sexual congress), and of marriage. It is also the number of humankind because of the five points of extremity of the human body.

When Eve gave Adam the Apple of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden, therefore, it was not just a piece of fruit she was offering him, but a potent symbol of wisdom. Eating the fruit that contains the pentagram resulted in a profound awakening for Adam and Eve. They became not only aware of their owns sexual natures, but they realized that they could make their own choices.

Not only is the pentagram a symbol of power, but it is imbued with actual power and is used in spell casting and the revelation of secrets. The pentagram is either pentagonal or star-shaped. Earliest representations of it appear
scratched on the walls of caves, and it is understandable that ancient man would have a natural and automatic reverence for the stars; this is relevant today as it was then.

The ubiquity of this sign cant be stressed enough. It has associated not with pagan practice but also with Christian mysticism, Druidry, magic, sacred geometry, alchemy, the Kabbalah; it appears in the Tarot where it can represent the suit of coins, and it is an important symbol in Freemasonry, where it is called the "Blazing Star."
One instance of its use was as a secret symbol whereby followers of Pythagaros could recognize one another since, as Adam had discovered, it was the key to higher knowledge. Pythagaros held that 5 was the number of Man, because of both the division of the soul and of the body into five parts each. Further, the five points of the pentagram represented the elements; earth,air,fire,water and psyche, or ether in the eastern tradition.

The follower's would describe the sign of the pentagram upon themselves in exactly the same way as do pagan people, who used it as a sign of protection, in much the same way that Christians is the Latin Cross.

If you want to try it, here's how. The sign starts at the left breast, and then goes tot he forehead, then to the right breast, then the left shoulder followed by the right shoulder, and back again to the left breast. Pythagoreans would accompany this with a greeting of "good health" because another hidden meaning within the pentagram is that the initials of the five elements which each of the points represented were anagrams for the name of the Goddess of healing, Hygiea.

In the Kabbalah, the pentagram represents the upper five Sephiroth on the tree of life, whose qualities are justice, mercy, wisdom, understanding and transcendent splendor.

Fremasonry draws upon much of the Pythagorean symbolism of the pentagram, although it is also seen as a reminder that Christ was spirit descended into matter, and as such represents the Star of Bethlehem.

The inverted pentagram has been accorded a more sinister interpretation then was ever intended; up until relatively recently it didn't seem to matter which way the star landed, after all this symbol is like the circle in that it has no beginning and no end. However, the symbol of Baphomet makes use of the upside down pentagram.

The pentagram is the sign of Venus, both the planet known as the Morning Star and the Goddess. Over the course of four years and one day, the planet describes the shape of a pentagram in the sky. Uniquely, Venus is the only planet whose movements trace a graphically recognizable symbol, a secret sign written in the sky.

Adam and Eve were cursed by eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and all mankind through them... How dare you continue the work of satan - by trying to indoctrinate people into the satanic kingdom - through teaching them to draw this accursed symbol on themselves. If you have drawn a pentegram on yourself then ask Jesus to wash it away by His blood. satan is nothing before Jesus Christ and only Jesus can give us true wisdom and life and free us from the curse of the first Adam. I pray that Jesus will open your eyes and free you from the curse and bondage of satan. Without Jesus Christ who is the God of gods you have nothing.

keep away from pentegrams, hexegrams, satanic hand signs (horned-beast and ok signs) - all these (knowingly or unknowingly) give glory to devils and encourage them to harm your life - devils exist only to destroy you and everyone around you - stay clear and let Jesus (the Father and the Holy Spirit) be your protector - there is no other
