The upside down cross
Here is a satanic symbol frequently found in the fashion world, music and sports industry, governments, company logos as well as churches and places of worship. It's important to recognize this symbol to avoid any unconscious use or influence.
The cross is a symbol that represents the death of Christ for the remission of our sins. In Catholicism, the inverted cross represents the humility the apostle Peter exhibited at his death.
The Roman emperor, Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, was the fifth and last Roman emperor of the Julio-Claudian dynasty. He is known for a number of executions, including those of his mother and brother-in-law. He was one of the first Christians' persecutor, whom he hated and executed. According to historical accounts, when the apostle Peter was close to denying Jesus Christ, persecution struck the Roman church and St. Peter was arrested by Roman troops. At his execution, he insisted to be crucified with his head facing down as a sign of humility and respect for Christ. He deemed himself unworthy to die in the same exalted manner as YESHUA, and a regular crucifixion was too great for him. Following his death, many Christians were also being crucified in this same posture. Thus, the inverted cross has a double meaning: it is both a sign of humility in reference to Saint Peter and a sign of Christian genocide.
Thus, the inverted cross has a double meaning: it is both a sign of humility in reference to Saint Peter and a sign of Christian genocide. Nonetheless, it would seem illogical to connect such an emblem of Christianity to those who oppose it. One would then ask whether the cabbalists, occultists and Satanists who constantly wear it are also doing so as a sign of humility before Jesus Christ? Clearly, this is not the case.
It's very evident that the kingdom of darkness frantically opposes the church of Jesus Christ and tries to undermine, discourage, deceive, infiltrate, oppress, forbid or destroy it in every possible way. Inverted symbols are typical of the anti values pursued by Kabbalists. They do everything backwards and in opposition to Christian values. For instance, people who are often sacrificed to Satan on the Black Sabbath are crucified with their heads facing down or upside down, in accordance with this tradition.
Isaiah 5:20 "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who turn darkness to light and light to darkness, who replace bitter with sweet and sweet with bitter."
For cabbalists, occultists and satanists, the upside down cross symbolizes the rejection of YESHUA; it's mockery, disrespect and contempt for the saving cross. It's their way of asserting they are their own center of inner balance and truth; that they have made the choice to rebel against YAHWEH; and that they deny and reject the salvation of their souls.
Nero's cross or peace sign
The Jewish custom at the time of Christ was to break the legs of those crucified on the Sabbath, in order to suffocate them and facilitate a speedier death. Yet, no one dared to break YESHUA's legs.
John 19:31-33 "Then the Jews, because it was the day of preparation, so that the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. So the soldiers came, and broke the legs of the first man and of the other who was crucified with Him; but coming to Jesus, when they saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs"
The Nero cross or peace sign is also called the broken cross, crow's foot, witch's foot, sign of the broken Jew, or the symbol of the Antichrist. Similar to the upside down cross, it's a cross within a circle with broken arms. The two diagonal segments are meant to represent the breaking of the cross which signifies the "gesture of despair" or the "death of man". It represents the antithesis of Christianity or a way to protest against Christianity.
Over the past 2000 years, this symbol has been used to denote hatred of Christians. Nero, who despised Christians, crucified the Apostle Peter on a cross upside down because Peter felt he was not worthy of being crucified in the same exalted manner as Christ. This event became a popular pagan insignia of the time. Later on, this symbol became known as the "neronic cross".
Around the year 711 AD, the Saracens began carving the upside down cross into their shields and armor to symbolize the breaking of the Christian cross.
In the Middle Ages, the symbol was used in sorcery by Druids and occultists of all kinds when initiating a new member into their order. They would draw a circle and give the initiate a cross. the latter would then raise the cross, turn it upside down, and break the horizontal pieces downward to form the "crow’s foot". Through this gesture, he renounced Christianity in all three dimensions of time (past, present and future).
It was originally used as a symbol of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. It consists of the semaphore flag representation of the letters N and D for Nuclear Disarmament as shown in the image below.
The peace sign has historical pagan, occult and anti-Christian implications and meanings; it's also associated with the Nazis and Soviet communism.
The rune of life/death
To this day, the inverted broken cross (identical to the socialist "peace" sign) is known in Germany as a "death rune" or "life rune".
The Lebensrune or runic insignia of the Schutzstaffel was based on the Algiz rune and used by the Lebensborn, the SS organization responsible for the Lebensborn program that supported the families of SS members. It first appeared in the 1920s and was widely used within Nazi Germany, for example on the flags, uniforms and other official prescriptions of the Schutzstaffel, as symbols of various aspects of Germanic ideology and mysticism. The Lebensrune is known as the "rune of life" and its insignia is ᛉ for "life".
When inverted, it becomes The Todesrune or "rune of death" and its insignia is ᛦ for "death". Germanic tribes attributed strange and mystical properties to The Todesrune, the symbol was used in black magic for pagan incantations and condemnations.
During World War II Hitler's National Socialists ordered that these two runes appear in the obituaries of the dreaded Nazi officers of Hitler's 3rd Panzer Division SS troops, on German death certificates, and also be part of the official inscription prescribed in cemeteries and on tombstones to mark dates of birth and death, replacing the asterisk and cross symbols traditionally used in this context in Germany.
Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan, used the peace sign as a backdrop for his altar.
The cross is very fashionable among occultists and Satanists who wear it proudly. Remembering that symbolism is a language of image and an image is worth a thousand words, this cross is another sign that mocks the cross of Jesus Christ and portrays the defeat of Christianity. To wear or display this symbol is to announce knowingly or unconsciously that you have rejected Christ.
The Ankh or the key to ancient Egypt
In ancient Egypt, the mysterious cross of the Ankh is a combination of masculine and feminine principles. The Yang (the vertical bar is the male energy); the Yin (the horizontal line is the passive female energy). Yin and Yang or more precisely the union of Osiris (man) and Isis (woman) represents the union of Heaven and Earth, the union of life and death. In other words, the cross of the Ankh is a symbol of human existence whose crossroads are the nucleus, the essence of the human spirit, the point of origin, the beginning, the genesis.
The cross of the Ankh was an essential element of the gods and the pharaohs, the Egyptians engraved it on their amulets in order to prolong their life on earth. They also buried it with their dead to ensure a continuation of life in another realm because they were convinced that the key that opened the doors of heaven looked exactly like this cross. In Babylon, the Ankh was a symbol of heaven and immortality.
In esoteric traditions, this cross acted as a key to divine secret knowledge, hidden wisdom, power and supremacy. Those who are initiated into the world of mysticism must pass various tests while holding the ankh above their heads in order to dispel negative energies. Occultists believe that the cross of the Ankh enables the elevation of the human to the superhuman.
