Eye of Horus, Eye of Ra or Eye of Providence



This is a satanic symbol that is frequently found in the fashion world, the music and sports industry, governments, company logos and churches and places of worship. It is important to understand its meaning to avoid any unconscious use or influence. 


This eye represents Ra, the sun god. In esoterism, it's associated with the opening of the third eye to attain spiritual enlightenment.  


The human eye is most likely one of the most significant symbolic sensory organs and has been used as a symbol since the dawn of civilization. It can be found throughout all ages and cultures. The eyes represent clairvoyance, omniscience or a gateway to the soul. The eyes are also associated with intelligence, enlightenment, alertness, moral awareness and truth.


The Bible teaches that the eye is the lamp of the body. 

  • Matthew 6:22-23 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!"


The sign of covering one's eye that was created by Hollywood celebrities indicates exactly the opposite. Many young believers imitate this hand gesture without really understanding its spiritual implications. When you cover one eye, you are effectively blocking half of your vision. By covering one eye, celebrities are expressing that they have symbolically "sacrificed" a vital part of their being. And, since the eyes are the "windows to the soul," this hand gesture symbolizes the partial or total loss of the soul. Spiritually it means becoming half blind to the truth, or deception.

The Lord warns us that the vain shepherd has his right eye completely darkened to the truth.

  • Zechariah 11:17 "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 Bible also teaches that our reflection in mirrors is a dark way of looking at ourselves, because we do not see that immaterial part that lives within our bodies and which is the real us.

  • 1 Corinthians 13:12 "Now we see but a dim reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known."

***Note that many celebrities do not dare to look at mirrors, do not keep them in their homes or prefer to use extra luminous vanity mirrors. This is not because these people have a low self-esteem but rather it is related to the fact that they have opened their pineal gland (or third eye) and they have gained access to a dimension that is forbidden. Through mirrors they can see the dark shadows of their souls, as well as the demons to whom they have given free access into their lives.


It's undeniable that YAHWEH delights in beauty, hence nature is incomparably beautiful. It is also true that people are greatly affected by their appearance in mirrors and they constantly want to enhance their external image. This is normal because every time we try to add some form of beauty to our lives we imitate our Creator. However, the Lord warns us that he who gives no consideration to reading the Scriptures but is primarily concerned with his outward appearance, is spiritually blind to the truth. When a person hears the Word of God, recognizes that he needs to change some aspect of his life but still chooses to reject that truth; that individual is like one who looks in a mirror, sees his true image, but turns away without caring for what he has seen.

  • James 1:23-24 “For anyone who hears the word but does not carry it out is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror, and after observing himself goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like."

  • 1 Timothy 4:8 "For physical exercise is of limited value, but godliness is valuable in every way, holding promise for the present life and for the one to come."


In the Gospel of St. Thomas, which is a collection of 114 prophetic utterances of YESHUA, only a few of which were included in the biblical canon, He warns us in verse 84 by saying: ""When you see the likeness of yourselves, you are delighted. But when you see the images of yourselves which came into being before you — they neither die nor are visible — how much you will suffer!"


There are also Bible verses that give us similar warnings:

  • Isaiah 3:24 "Instead of fragrance there will be a stench; instead of a belt, a rope; instead of styled hair, baldness; instead of fine clothing, sackcloth; instead of beauty, shame."

  • Psalms 49:14 "And their beauty shall be consumed in the grave, far from their dwelling."


When you gaze at your reflection in the mirror, no matter what you see, remember that YAHWEH sees the "real you" beyond the mirror. In His eyes it is the kind heart of a wise and humble man that is a real spark of beauty in the heavens. 

  • 1 Peter 3:4 “but from the inner disposition of your heart, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in God’s sight."
