Sign of the Cross

By The Holy Spirit's Disciple, Raymond Laginess

The sign of the cross is a Roman symbol of the devil. The Papal system made the image of the cross into a grand charm, a pagan tool used by Babylonian people for magic purposes. The signing of the cross is not a Christian symbol or emblem. It was used by demon priests, and was the mystic Tau of the Chaldeans and Egyptians. There is no spiritual connection to the Catholic cross, and if you sign yourself you are calling the demons of hell to yourself and will become possessed of devils.

Christ died on a wooden tree, not a metal or cut piece of wood as they say. If you wear a cross symbol or carry it in your car or on the end of your pagan beads, you get a free visit from a demon who enters your soul and body and he will control you. When you sign yourself - right hand to forehead...to heart...then left shoulder...cross to right shoulder, you are cursing yourself and asking for demon protection.

 History of the sign of the cross

That mystic Tau was marked in baptism on the foreheads of those initiated in the Mysteries, and was used in every variety of ways as a most sacred symbol. To identify Tammuz with the sun it was joined sometimes to the circle of the sun, sometimes it was inserted in the circle. Whether the Maltese cross, which the Romish bishops append to their names as a symbol of their episcopal dignity, is the letter T, may be doubtful; but there seems no reason to doubt that that Maltese cross is an express symbol of the sun; for Layard found it as a sacred symbol in Nineveh in such a connection as led him to identify it with the sun. The mystic Tau, as the symbol of the great divinity, was called “the sign of life;” it was used as an amulet over the heart; it was marked on the official garments of the priests, as on today's official garments of the priests of Rome; it was borne by kings in their hand, as a token of their dignity or divinely-conferred authority. The Vestal virgins of Pagan Rome wore it suspended from their necklaces, as the nuns do now and the worldly people also wear this pagan symbol around their neck and hang the cross from their ears. The Egyptians did the same, and many of the barbarous nations with whom they had intercourse, as the Egyptian monuments bear witness. There is hardly a Pagan tribe where the cross has not been found. The cross was worshipped by the Pagan Celts long before the incarnation and death of Christ. In was worshipped in Mexico for ages before the Roman Catholic missionaries set foot there, large stone crosses being erected, probably to the “god of rain”.

The cross thus widely worshipped, or regarded as a sacred emblem, was the unequivocal symbol of Bacchus, the Babylonian Messiah, for he was represented with a head-band covered with crosses. This symbol of the Babylonian god is reverenced at this day in all the wide wastes of Tartary, where Buddhism prevails, and the way in which it is represented among them forms a striking commentary on the language applied by Rome to the Cross. “The cross,” says Colonel Wilford, in the Asiatic Researches, “though not an object of worship among the Baud’has or Buddhists, is a favourite emblem and device among them. It is exactly the cross of the Manicheans, with leaves and flowers springing from it. This cross, putting forth leaves and flowers (and fruit also, as I am told), is called the divine tree, the tree of the gods, the tree of life and knowledge, and productive of whatever is good and desirable, and is placed in the terrestrial paradise.” Compare this with the language of Rome applied to the cross, and it will be seen how exact is the coincidence. In the Office of the Cross, it is called the “Tree of life,” and the worshippers are taught thus to address it: “Hail, O Cross, triumphal wood, true salvation of the world, among trees there is none like thee in leaf, flower, and bud.....O Cross, our only hope, increase righteousness to the godly and pardon the offences of the guilty.” Can any one, reading the gospel narrative of the crucifixion, possibly believe that that narrative of itself could ever germinate into such extravagance of “leaf, flower, and bud,” as thus appears in this Roman Office? But when it is considered that the Buddhist, like the Babylonian cross, was the recognised emblem of Tammuz, who was known as the mistletoe branch, or “All-heal,” then it is easy to see how the sacred Initial should be represented as covered with leaves, and how Rome, in adopting it, should call it the “Medicine which preserves the healthful, heals the sick, and does what mere human power alone could never do.”

 The deceitfullness of Satan

It’s truly amazing just how strong paganism is and how it is growing in religions of today and in the carnal world under all different names. It is all works...and orientated deep in heresy. Man through Satan always wants the worldly, fleshly things, objects, icons, etc., to see the Lord, thus making themselves to look good or righteous in their own eyes, and even in the eyes of others. Like faith, it is a substance you cannot see. When Satan makes it a substance of feeling, or something to be seen (by sight), it is evil and not of the Lord. You can’t see faith, it has no substanceof feeling or sight...it’s inward, not fleshly outside. Making signs, blessing yourself or wearing metals, chains, charms, crosses, etc., is not holy...it fact, it calls the demons to oneself.

 Death by lack of faith

People, you die for lack of true faith....you want fleshly things, objects like jewelry made into crosses, hanging from a chain around your neck or gold earrings in the shape of crosses hanging from your ears, and the display of christ hanging on the cross on your walls. You want signs, miracles, etc., and none of these are faith. You need nothing, but to believe in Jesus Christ by faith...He did it all for us and it’s free...it’s yours to accept...it is a gift of the Lord. Righteousness is inside, not on the outside.
