Symbols. What they Mean.

Russian Coat of ArmsWe see this in many places all the time. Keep this in mind as we continue. See more of what it means here at Wikipedia.

I have been doing some serious studying on symbolism and the meaning they have. I was actually surprised at how these simple little pictures we see on Churches, Banks, Government buildings, Libraries, Colleges, Video games, Internet sites, and other various places we see on a daily basis, reflect a story from not only times past but, well into our future.

These simple images and carvings all tell a story of what was and is in most cases of plans from ancient times. Reflecting back on history, and Religious motives. These symbols still have a lot of meaning today, yet most of the time in our busy and rush hour time consumed lives. We really never get to sit back and realize how much these symbols surround us and have major influences in out lives.

I want to take some time on this blog and add to as I can different meanings of these symbols and how important they are to know about, even in today's society. I know that some churches may get mad on some of these posts. So I would like to warn them now. If you really do not want to see truth about some Churches and Religions. You may not like to see what will be posted on this site.

Crecent Moon
Star and Crescent Symbol
Represents Islam. It features prominently on the flags of many countries in the Islamic world, notably Turkey and Pakistan. You will see this many times also as I go along here. Some more information can be found here at
I will also be posting some Biblical facts of this symbol as well.

I have studied long and hard to understand the meaning of these. So for someone to come along and tell me it's not true would just be ignorance a failure on that persons side to acknowledge what many have studied and found throughout History.

Now this is the main freemasonic symbol:
Freemason symbol
Again this will be seen many times through these posts.
I will not say that all the information on this is right or not. There seems to be many meanings that go along with this one. The picture comes from this site here.

This is not a posting on who is better or right. Simply a fact of what these symbols mean. Why? because people want to know the truth. I in no way stray from what the Bible teaches and I still love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God Himself was very clear in His 10 commandments not to make ANY graven or carved images to worship. As a matter of fact let us read that before I get started.

Exodus Chapter 20
1 And God spoke all these words, saying:
2 I am the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
3 Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor any manner of likeness, of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;
4 thou shalt not bow down unto them, nor serve them; for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me;
5 and showing mercy unto the thousandth generation of them that love Me and keep My commandments.
