There is a global agenda to remove Jehovah God from the minds and hearts of the people. This is a fact and we can already see this taking place throughout the country. Satan will use his old tactics to accomplish his task because he knows it will work if we submit to it. The biggest lie I have heard and one that is becoming more and more common in this generation is “You are your own God” in a nut shell and it is amazing to me in how many different ways he can disguise it. The popular trend in music and fashion attire is to be who you want to be. That phrase alone is dangerous if you consider that everything else in media plays into this mentality. From social media to the school system teaching kids that they can choose how they want to live and no-one should judge them for it. It is almost as though Satan sat with his demonic council and thought of every angle of attack and has injected this same lie with a different mask. We will see this same lie in the Peace Symbol in this article. The enemy’s plan is to take everything God can offer us and to replace it with earthly promises that will always return void.
The Peace Symbol
To start this off, I just want to clarify that to the public eye, this symbol represents world peace. Scripture says that true and everlasting peace only comes from our lord so no matter how hard the world tries to offer its version of peace, it will never compare.
“Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace;”
” Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you”
We can see already that there just isn’t any real peace outside of Christ. So any definition of peace that the world may offer you, is an illusion. Satan knows that there will never be peace on earth without God and without a counterfeit peace, he runs the risk of people trusting in God. So he will created an illusion that you can have this peace without God through earthly systems like government laws and social movements. Humans are always in search for peace and will go to far extent to find it but if we really understood that we can not produce peace on our own and that Jesus is our source of peace, we would seek him for direction.
In an article I found on the CND under the section “What does it mean?” speaking on the peace symbol, it gives a quote from the designer, Gerald Holtom.
“I was in despair. Deep despair. I drew myself: the representative of an individual in despair, with hands palm outstretched outwards and downwards in the manner of Goya’s peasant before the firing squad. I formalised the drawing into a line and put a circle round it.”

Gerald said that he designed this logo based on a person in despair. A man without hope with his arms outstretched outwards and downwards. The peace symbol is nothing more than a symbol of hopelessness and this is the ultimate message the enemy is trying to engrave into your minds. He is out to destroy your life and make you believe that we are hopeless without a savior and that you have to find your own way for salvation. When this symbol is worn, whether or not you know what it stands for, we are displaying to the world that we are in despair and defeated. There were badges with the symbol painted on them made from clay and fired that were found intact after a burning inferno that took place in the late 50’s. The colors used to paint the symbol were white and black. The article itself states that there was a conscious symbolism behind the color choice.
“Five hundred cardboard lollipops on sticks were produced. Half were black on white and half white on green. Just as the church’s liturgical colours change over Easter, so the colours were to change, ‘from Winter to Spring, from Death to Life”…
And about the badges it says they used..
“…white clay with the symbol painted black. Again there was a conscious symbolism.”
With the lollipop they started with a white base that represents life and painted the symbol black which represents death but was meant to mean “from death to life”. And also with the badges, they used a white base and painted the symbol black that represents “from life to death”. Based on the actual meaning of the symbol we know that the lollipop’s representation is in accurate. This symbol is a symbol of death and despair and not peace and life. But we can see how the public meaning began to get distorted so soon.
Later Eric Austen, the producer of the badges, is quoted saying,
“the gesture of despair had long been associated with the death of Man and the circle with the unborn child.
There is no good in the symbol thus far, even after looking into the history from the mouth of the creators themselves. However history show that this symbol has existed centuries before Gerald ever popularized it. With media and technology, many people are only aware of the symbol of today but it the peace symbol isn’t a new design. Today, the meaning of the symbol has slightly change but still holds the same values.
What The Satanist Think
Anthon Lavey, the founder of the modern Satanist group gives this statement when talking about the peace symbol:
“It is an ancient and powerful symbol of Antichrist. During the dark ages it was used in Druid Witchcraft and by Satanists of all sorts during the initiation of a new member to their order. They would draw the magic circle and give the initiate a cross. The initiate would then lift the cross and turn it upside down. He would then renounce Christianity in all three dimensions (sic) of time (past, present and future) and break the horizontal pieces downward forming the design of the ‘Raven’s Foot.’ This ugly symbol is nothing short of blasphemy against the Holy Ghost. For one to wear or display this symbol is to announce either knowingly or unknowingly that you have rejected Christ. Remember, symbolism is a picture language, and a picture is worth a thousand words.”
The act of this ritual holds the same meaning that the Gerald originally stated when he mention that the symbol was a man in despair with no hope. We can assume that either Gerald was associated to the Satanist or was being pushed to the same conclusion by the spirit of the symbol. We know that during the creating of the symbol, Gerald was in a state of despair and hopelessness. What these satantic rituals are representing is that the rejection of the death of Jesus Christ is to become void and thus there is no real hope for mankind.
The Word of God says:
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:18
Lets keep this truth in our hearts and if do no power can ever take it from us. The enemy is out to kill, steal and destroy but Christ came so we could have a hope and life. I recommend removing this symbol from your life and cling to the cross. If this broken, upside down cross shows the renouncing of Jesus Christ, what would wearing the upright cross mean in the eyes of the enemy?
