MASONIC (ESOTERIC) SYMBOLISM FOUND TODAY HIDDEN IN RELIGIONS AND CULTS
SECOND ANGELS MESSAGE: Revelation 18:4 "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come OUT of her (ALL CHURCHES), my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."

“Flee from Babylon! Run for your lives! Do not be destroyed because of her sins. It is time for the LORD’s vengeance; he will repay her what she deserves.” (Jeremiah 51:6 (NIV 1984)
"Then I heard another voice from heaven say: 'Come out of her (her=ALL CHURCHES!), my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes." (Revelations 18:4-5 NIV 1984)

The intention of this website is not to offend anyone but only to present evidence and make others aware of the occult practices in religious denominations and cults.
We are surrounded by symbols, from corporate logos and currency to religious institutions. Unfortunately, very few of us are aware of what they represent. It is important to remember that a symbol represents something more than itself. A symbol by itself is meaningless, it is the intent behind it what really matters. Symbols reveal and symbols conceal. They reveal to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. Let's review the following information carefully and pay attention to the symbols one by one.
"The philosophic power of Freemasonry lies in its symbols, its priceless heritage form the Mystery schools of antiquity." (Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, p.578, 2003, original edition 1928).
“The symbols of the wise always become the idols of the ignorant multitude. What the Chiefs of the Order really believed and taught, is indicated to the Adepts by the hints contained in the high Degrees of Free-Masonry, and by the symbols which only the Adepts understand.” (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Charleston, A.M. 5632, p. 819)
According to Cutting Edge Ministries, the power of occult symbols does not dissipate, but increases, when the uninitiated remain ignorant of their esoteric meaning.
"Occultists the world over believe that, once a symbol is created, it acquires power of its own, and more power is generated when such symbol(s) are created without the profane [uninitiated] knowing about it. And, the greatest power of all is created in the symbol(s) if the uninitiated NEVER discover that the symbol exists...
"The occultist firmly believes that a symbol or a set of symbols possesses inherent power once they are created. Therefore, occultic doctrine teaches that these Satanic symbols would act as a powerful electric-type grid once they were set in place." (Masonic Symbols of Power in Their Seat of Power: Washington, D.C., Cutting Edge Ministries website)
The pyramid is composed of a total of 13 layers. If you have studied any of the works of art or monuments that were inspired by Masonic teachings, you will already know that the number thirteen is constantly represented in various ways. The bottom layers of the pyramid represent the lower degrees of Masonry while the top two, which are separated by the divider, represent the Illuminati – the “hidden degrees”, the capstone of the pyramid. The upper levels of the pyramid always refer to those hidden degrees. This is where the “Truth” is revealed and where the decisions are made. The bottom layers are simply a school of hermeticism and are a means to recruit “those who are worthy”. If you are a Mason or a member of a religious denomination that uses the pyramid as a symbol and you are not at the top of the hierarchy represented by the capstone of the pyramid, I am not referring to you (just had to make this point clear). It is interesting to note that the pyramid on the back of the American $1.00 dollar bill also contains 13 layers. Some examples of Seventh Day Adventists using the number 13 in their rituals, doctrines and organizational structure are:
The two pyramidal symbols are; the tetractys of Pythagoras on the left, and the Cube and the Star to the right.
The following are SDA symbols all making use of the pyramid or triangle.
Many of these symbols have double meaning. The next one, for example, has the pyramid and the phoenix or falcon rising from it:
This other symbol above has four faces showing only one eye, one pyramid pointing up and another one pointing down. The concept of the two pyramids, one pointing up and the other one down, is a very old one and it means "as above, so below".

Seventh day Adventists have also given up the health message? Check out proof here:
The Astana Pyramid and its Final Goal:
The Palace of Peace and Reconciliation is a Pyramid located in the city of Astana Kazakhstan. It was specially built to host the Congress of Leaders of the World and Traditional Religions. The structure allows accommodations for different religions: Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism and all the other faiths of the world. It is believe this Pyramid will host the IV Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions sometime between May and October of 2012.

Lets not forget:
"For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape." (1 Thessalonians 5:3 NKJV)
"Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory." (Matthew 24:30 NKJV)
See how similar is the message under the Pyramid on the cover of the SDA Ministry Magazine to the message of religious unification of the Astana Pyramid illustrated before.
In the following illustration, Jacob Boehme a sixteenth century cabalist represents "God" in the shape of a Pyramid sitting on his throne.
Jakob Böhme or "Jacob Boehme" (1575-1624), an Occultist, Theosophist and "Christian" mystic was able to attracted through his Gnostic illustrations many diciples to the Masonic lodges of his era.
The Adventist Tetragrammaton
According to the online Symbols Dictionary:
"This symbol, often referred to as the synthesis of alchemy or the Hermetic Seal, hearkens back to ancient Pythagorean philosophy, wherein the square, circle, the and the triangle are the emblems of the material body, the soul, and the spirit, the three elements believed to be necessary for alchemical transformation. Alchemically, these are Mercury, Salt, and Sulfur. In Atalanta Fugiens, the alchemical text illustrated below, it is written, 'Make of man and woman a circle; thence a square; thence a triangle; form a circle, and you will have the Philosopher’s Stone,' a hidden geometrical formula for creating an octave and a golden rectangle."

What is Alchemy?
"Alchemy is an influential philosophical tradition whose early practitioners’ claims to profound powers were known from antiquity. The defining objectives of alchemy are varied; these include the creation of the fabled philosopher's stone possessing powers including the capability of turning base metals into the noble metals gold or silver- as well as an elixir of life conferring youth and immortality." (See Wikipedia article on Alchemy)
Esoteric Meaning of Alchemy:
"In the eyes of a variety of esoteric and Hermetic practitioners, the heart of alchemy is spiritual. Transmutation of lead into gold is presented as an analogy for personal transmutation, purification, and perfection." (Antoine Faivre, Wouter J. Hanegraaff, Western esotericism and the science of religion. p.96, 1995)
Manly P. Hall says the enigma of the Alchemical Cryptogram "is a reminder that those studying works on Hermeticism, Rosicrucianism, alchemy, and Freemasonry should always be on the lookout for concealed meanings hidden either in parables and allegories or in cryptic arrangements of numbers, letters, and words." (Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, p. 563, 2003 original text published on 1928)
Grillot de Givry describes alchemy:
"There was one doctrine, alchemy, which claim to penetrate the mystery of life and of the formation of inanimate substances." (Witchcraft, Magic & Alchemy by Grillot de Givry, p. 347, 1971)
"One of the first precised notions gleaned from reading authors who have treated of alchemy is that this science is based on a secret reserved for only a few privileged adepts possessing the intellectual and moral qualities requisite for obtaining it." (Witchcraft, Magic & Alchemy by Grillot de Givry, p. 347, 1971)
Compare above the similarities between these two symbols. The Alchemical Cryptogram also involves the triangle or (Pyramid), the circle or (Disk) and the cross under the circle. For more research about these symbols, you can visit the following website and access the book (The Secret Teachings of All Ages) at:
For Rosicrucian and Qabbalistic symbols:
The Adventist Logo and the Magical Triangle of Solomon.
Lets take a look at the occultism involved in the Qabbalistic symbol called "Letter Shin" (Next symbol). In the book (The Secret Teachings off all Ages) Manly P. Hall says:
According to the online Symbols Dictionary:
"The triangle of art represents the protected space outside the magic circle, into which spirits are compelled to appear in Solomonic ritual magic. Typically, the central circle is inscribed with the sigil (seal) of the spirit to be invoked. The usual form is of a triangle, circumscribed with various words of power, containing an inner, blackened circle. The purpose of the triangle is to contain the manifested entity. In some cases, the triangle is created as a physical object; sometimes, the central circle is replaced with a black scrying mirror."

As we can see in the illustrations above, the Seventh Day Adventist church has been incorporating occult Qabbalistic masonic concepts into their logos or symbols. The SDA logo has concealed in it the pyramid, the disk and the three flames representing the "Trinity of the Sephiroth", which isthe false triad of the Qabbalists. (Look at the Qabbalist symbol שׁ or "Letter Shin" on the upper right)
The Tetragrammaton is usually represented as a triangular shape with a circle inside and some times like two pyramids joined together, one pointing up and and one pointing down. This shape is a Qabbalistic symbol used for magical rituals and spirits invocations. According to the Jewish mystic religion, the tetragrammaton refers to the name of "the God of Israel" YHWH, but there is one big problem; the God of Israel is not the God of Christianity. When the pharisees (Jewish leaders) confronted Jesus claiming that they were legitimate descendants of Abraham, they said; “The only Father we have is God himself.” (John 8:41) But Jesus replied to them:
The apostle Paul also warned us against following false Jewish teachings:
The Tetragrammaton according to the Jewish Encyclopedia:
The next group shows more examples of symbols using the Cabbalistic Tetragrammaton
Compare the Tetragrammaton Qabbalistic symbols above to the Image on the altar of the Forest Lake Seventh Day Adventist church (Picture below).
Observe above how masonic religions such as the SDA infiltrate secretly these Cabalists figures in their magazines, websites, college logos, etc. They play the figures around to entertain the eyes of the followers preventing them from identifying the patterns. It does not matter in what position they place the triangles, it always serves the purpose. They perform a very important mystical role for the institution that uses them. The purpose, the meaning and the effect is always secret but very real. Mysteriously, most of these institutions' followers or leaders in the lower levels are completely unaware of the presence of these hidden symbols and even if they see them, they will pay no attention to and ignore them.
The Hermetic Philosophy comes from Hermes Trismegistus. According to the Secret Doctrine, Hermes Trismegistus was known by the Ancient Egyptians as "The Great Great" and "Master of Masters".
Source: (The Kybalíon, A study of the Hermetic Philosophy of Ancient Egypt and Greece by Three Iniciates, The Yogi Publication Society, Masonic Temple Chicago iII, 1908) http://www.kybalion.org/kybalion.php
Hermes "the god of speech" is mentioned in the Bible:
The (SDA) pyramidal symbol can also be compared to the Goetia Circle of evocation, composed by a circle within a triangle and used by magicians to evocate the 72 spirits. This symbol also known as the Tetragrammaton or "Triangle of Salomon" (the Lesser key of Salomon), as is used by Qabbalists. In the ritual, the magician would stand within the circle and the spirit was believed to appear within the triangle. This triangular symbol was use by the occultist and Freemason Aliester Crowley during magical rituals and spiritual ceremonies. Alister Crowley was the leader of the Secret Society "Ordo Temply Orientis".
We may wonder why always triangular or pyramidal shapes? If you do a little bit of research on books of occultism like (The Secret Teachings of All Ages), you can see that these triangular shape symbols were commonly used in magical rituals for incantations and spells over groups of people and places to accomplish goals. Revelations 18:23 (NIV) tells us that "Babylon the Harlot" would use magical spells to somehow control the nations and lead them astray.
In the book of Galatians 3:1-3, Paul also talks about the believers being bewitched by someone to make them turn away to a different gospel than the one already preached. In the book of Isaiah 47:12 the prophet also talks about the fall of Babylon just as John in Revelations 18:23 and he describes how Babylon used spells and sorceries. Let's review the verses:
Unfortunately people refuse to believe the darkness involved in all this. They have totally underestimated the power of Satan. They have discarded Jesus' teachings through Paul and the rest of the apostles. Paul warned us against this type of spiritual captivity non only in Galatians 3:1-3 but also in Colossians 2:8 saying:
"See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ". Colossians 2:8 (NIV)
Henry Makow, author of the book "Illuminati, The Cult That Hijacked the World", says that all these masonic symbols are the basic components of a satanic conspiracy. A conspiracy that is attacking us with full evil force.
"This satanic conspiracy, succeeds only because people cannot believe something so colossal and monstrous actually exists." (Henry Makow, Lucifer is the Secret God of Secular Society - Occult Agents Control Humanity, internet, savethemales.ca, October 13, 2003)
On the following pictures, look how similar the Adventist Circle logo is to the masonic symbol in the center. It looks like a compass but it could also be a pyramid with an eye.
One of the most shocking SDA symbols so far is the following one. They call themselves "Light Bearers". This symbol shows the Adventist flame surrounding the disc and all of the hands reaching out to the flame, as if seeking the light, or maybe as if worshiping the false trinity of the Shephiroth as we mentioned earlier. The symbol also forms a pyramidal shape. Let's have a look at the following quote to see what esoteric teachers mean by the term "Light Bearers".
Albert Pike, a 33 degree Freemason says in his book "Morals and Dogma" regarding theLight Bearer:
"Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness!Lucifer, the son of the morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with it's splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual or selfish Souls? Doubt it not!" (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, page 321)
Down on the left you can see a pyramid on the cover of a Jehovah Witness book. On the right you can see the Watchtower's pyramid memorial, with the cross and crown emblem and capstone. It was placed there in memory of Charles T. Russell (Jehovah Witness founder). The masonic pyramid has a creepy looking "all seeing eye" on top of it's capstone.

The following picture is from the Church History Museum located in Salt Lake City. The Museum tells the story of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons). Look at the symbols including the pyramid with the eye in the center.
The "All-Seeing Eye"
ABOVE IS THE ALL SEEING EYE IN THE MORMONS SALT LAKE TEMPLE, UTAH
The symbolism of the eye, as with all symbols, is open to many interpretations. Possible origins range from the third eye of Hinduism and yoga to the Vesica Pisces. The earliest known use of this symbol is the egyptian 'Eye of Horus'. From a masonic point of view this can be interpreted as the enlightenment of 'seeing' things as they really are, in the context of the third eye, or as a symbol of the gods watching over us, as with the Eye of Horus. This symbol also called the "Eye of Providence", sometimes referred to in Masonic rituals as the "All-Seeing Eye" (of Deity) is found in the ritual of most jurisdictions, reminding a Mason that his words and deeds are being judged by the "Supreme Architect of the Universe".
In modern society the all-seeing eye is usually equated with authority and surveillance. This interpretation can be seen in the logos of organizations such as DARPA in the US (Defense Advanced Research Project Agency founders of the internet), and MI5 (British intelligence) to name just a couple. Both of these organizations could be considered the all-seeing eye of their respective governments. From a Biblical stand point, there is not one single verse in the Bible that refers to God as "the all-seeing eye". The eye is a masonic symbol used in occultism to refer to their deity. So why are Seventh-Day Adventists so in love with these occult symbols? The symbol of the "Eye"can be traced within the (SDA) organization as far back as 1874, when Ellen G White (SDA Prophet) and her husband James White conceived the "Way of Life" lithograph shown below:
The Way of Life Lithograph showing "All Seeing Eye"
Original lithograph is located at Loma Linda University, in the White Estate Photographs:

Ellen G. White mentioning her deity "the all-seeing eye":
Let's see the teachers of occultism say about the all-seeing eye:
“— (Let him never forget that the Master is near. Day and night let him feel the presence of the Supreme or Overshadowing One. The All-Seeing Eye is upon him. Day and night this great Orb measures his depths, seeing into his innermost soul of souls, judging his life, reading his thoughts, measuring his aspirations, and rewarding his sincerity. To this All-Seeing One he is accountable; to none other must he account. This Spirit passes with him out of the Lodge and measures the Mason in the world." (Manly P. Hall, The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, p. 62, edition 2006, original edition 1923). Manly P. Hall was a 33 degree Mason and a teacher of the occult.
"The Masonic Movement when it can be divorced from politics and social ends and from its present paralyzing condition of inertia, will meet the need of those who can, and should, wield power. It is the custodian of the law; it is the home of the Mysteries and the seat of initiation. It holds in its symbolism the ritual of Deity, and the way of salvation is pictorially preserved in its work. The methods of Deity are demonstrated in its Temples, and under the all-seeing Eye the work can go forward. It is a far more occult organization than can be realized, and is intended to be the training school for the coming advanced occultists".-- (Alice Bailey, The Externalization of the Hierarchy - Section IV - Stages in the Externalization).
Alice Bailey was teacher in the occult. She was the author of 24 books in themes that included occult teachings, "esoteric" psychology and healing, astrology and other phylosophical works.
"His power was symbolized by an Eye over a Sceptre. The Sun was termed by the Greeks the Eye of Jupiter, and the Eye of the World; and his is the All-Seeing Eye in our Lodges. The oracle of Claros styled him King of the Stars and of the Eternal Fire, that engenders the year and the seasons, dispenses rain and winds, and brings about daybreak and night.And Osiris was invoked as the God that resides in the Sun and is enveloped by his rays, the invisible and eternal force that modifies the sublunary world by means of the Sun".--(Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, p. 477)

Celebrities Practicing Occultism
The Ouroborus is traditionally depicted as a serpent or dragon in the process of swallowing its own tail, resulting in the formation of a circle. From a Gnostic and Hermetic perspective, the ouroboros was a symbol of pure light, which permeated throughout the universe and encapsulated within the soul. Some viewed the serpent as the physical manifestation of the ouroboros, wisest of all God's creatures, present in the Garden of Eden when Adam & Eve were banished for the act of free will; obtaining gnosis and knowing good and evil.
Pay close attention to the next French Masonic ilustration. It contains the ancient serpent or dragon swallowing its tail, the Pyramid and the All-Seeing Eye.
Observe above the logo of the United Nations Habitat for Humanity, the serpent or dragon eating its own tail, the triangle and the all-seeing eye inside.
Watch Seventh Day Adventist Video Showing Occult Serpent. Pay close attention to the "All-Seeing Eye" at the end.
"It is called the Closed Eye of the Unknown Darkness", "by allusion to the darkness of unmanifest Spirit" "before the creation of beings and of things. But in that which is called creation it is said that the Eye opened, and then the radiance of the Ineffable Spirit poured through the aeons and the spaces" "Plutarch says that the chief deity of Egyptwas represented under the symbol of an Eye, and such an emblem encompassed by solar flame recurs in the old theosophies."--(Arthur Edward Waite, A New Encyclopaedia of Freemasonry 1970, p. 21)
With this Masonic definition in mind, let's now analyze the official symbol of the SDA denomination.
Look what happens when we unfold the "solar flames" of the symbol, and then compare it to the Egyptian winged disc symbol on the far right. Observe carefully how the Egyptian winged disk symbol found on this ancient painting is also on top of a cross, just like the Adventist logo.
The picture above showing the Winged Disk is located inside of the Washington Monument (Obelisk). George Washington was a Freemason and the first President of the United States. the image is located above the elevator door.
Compare the following (SDA) logo in the center to the Masonic or Qabbalah symbols surrounding it. Take a close look at the (SDA) masonic symbol with the eye inside the flame showing at the center of the Ptolemy scheme of worlds and the rest of the universe going around in circles. The website is from Teziultlán Mexico and it says "La Verdad Presente" (The Present Truth). Website is located at: http://adventistas-de-teziutlan.blogspot.com/
Above is the West Side Presbyterian Church Banner, Ridgewood New Jersey (http://westside.org/596598_.ihtml)
The concept for this (SDA) logo comes from an ancient belief called "The Ptolemaic System of the Universe", also known as the "Qabbalistic Scheme of Worlds". The (SDA) concept could be also compared to the "Tree of the Sephiroth". In this ancient model the earth stands at the center of the universe (picture above on the left). In the book "The Secret Teachings of All Ages" Manly P. Hall says:
Another interesting symbol is Molech, sometimes represented by an owl. Molech (also known as Moloch, Molek, or Melech) was an ancient Near Eastern deity worshiped by several cultures. The Canaanites, Carthaginians, and Israelites were especially devoted to making human sacrifices, even burning newborns alive, depending upon the seriousness of the blessing desired. Molech was commonly worshiped in the mid-east in pre-New Testament times. Throughout history Molech has been depicted as a bull, as an owl and sometimes even resembling a dog. The most common usage by secret societies in modern times is the owl representing esoteric wisdom. Molech is mentioned in the Bible as one of the many common pagan gods worshiped by the Israelites. (1 Kings 11:7) and (Acts 7:43)
The following pictures show a stone image of Molech located at the Bohemian Grove near Monte Rio California. Every year a ceremony called "The Cremation of Care" takes place surrounded by many prominent figures from our country who celebrate this pagan ritual.
Compare the image of the owl to the next symbol used by Adventist Risk Management. Also, see the Seventh Day Adventist owl symbol for the Latin America website (www.ojoadventista.com).
The next symbol from "Adventist Family Ministries" not only has a pyramid and the "happy humans" symbol (humanism), but also shows the owl of wisdom (Molech) hidden in the shape of hands.
Observe carefully below the resemblance between what appears to be a "plant" on the left and the image of the pagan god Moloch (the owl) on the right located at the Bohemian Grove in California.

The ilustration above shows the altar of the Joy of Troy Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Lansingburgh, NY. Compare the altar on the platform (Center) to the Moloch images on the sides.
The following are some other examples of Moloch in banks, currency, the International Monetary Fund and Mazda Motor Corp.
The Sun god Winged Disk
The winged disk symbol is found throughout Egypt. It appears in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic inscriptions and on the royal seals and cartouches of Egyptian pharaohs. This ancient Egyptian religious symbol is found carved onto obelisks, capstones of pyramids, and is painted onto fading ancient wall murals. The winged sun disk symbol graces the stone lintels of the entrances to many temples and palaces in Egypt. Numerous Egyptian pharaohs employed this religious symbol of their sun god as a royal sign of their divinely ordained status. There are various versions of this symbol; the Babylonian-Persian version of the winged disk, the Sumerian Falcon and the Egyptian one. These symbols are very commonly used by secret societies like, Freemasons, Rosicrucian, and other Qabbalistic cults.
Observe the similarity between the illustration in the SDA sabbath school study guide symbol and the Sumerian Falcon, both with the circle and the cross in the center on top of the tail. The (SDA) symbol also forms a hidden eye. They placed the phrase "teacher's guide" in a circular shape on top of the bird making the center circle the pupil of the eye. Look at it for a little while and you will see it.
Compare the sabbath school pamphlet symbol and the Sumerian Bird above with the Egyptian winged disk symbol on the cover of the Jehovah Witness book showing below.
(As above, so below)
Observe all the cabalistic Gnosticism depicting pagan worship involved in this rare portrait. The Masonic Christ is performing the hermetic symbol "as above, so below" signal with his hands. Notice how the "Christ" is holding his right hand up while at the same time he points down with his left hand. According to the SDA Church, Ministry Magazine commissioned Mark Stutzman to paint this distinctive portrayal of Christ’s Second Advent. The painting is based upon the descriptions of Christ and His literal, personal return contained "in the Bible" and in Ellen G. White’s book, The Great Controversy.
To see the original magazine issue of August 1990 on PDF, click on the following link to Ministry Magazine Archives:

Samuele R. Bacchiocchi (1938-2008) was a Seventh-day Adventist author and theologian, best known for his work on the Sabbath in Christianity, particularly in the historical work From Sabbath to Sunday, based on his doctoral thesis from the Pontifical Gregorian University.
Bacchiocchi completed graduate studies and earned a M. A. and a B. D. degrees at Andrews University Theological Seminary in 1964. In 1969 He returned to his native city of Rome to study at the prestigious Pontifical Gregorian University, where he was the first non-Catholic to be admitted in over 450 years of its history. At the Gregoriana he spent the next five years working toward a Doctoratus in Church History. Dr. Bacchiocchi was awarded a gold medal by Pope Paul VI for attaining the academic distinction of summa cum laude for my class-work and dissertation From Sabbath to Sunday. After completing his doctorate in 1974, he was invited to teach at Andrews University, a Seventh-day Adventist institution located in Berrien Springs, Michigan where he served for 23 years as a Professor of Theology and Church History in Andrews University.
(Dr. Samuele R. Bacchicchi, From Sabbath to Sunday: A Historical Investigation of the Rise of Sunday Observance in Early Christianity, Pontifical Gregorian University Press, 1977)
A small minority of Adventists are suspicious of Bacchiocchi claiming he is a Jesuit spy for the Vatican because he studied at the Gregorian University. Alberto Rivera a fundamentalist Christian who claimed to be a former Jesuit priest. claimed approval of From Sabbath to Sunday was given as a ploy to win over Adventists, as for similar ploys with other churches. (See Wikipedia Free Encyclopedia, Article on Samuele Bacchicchi, Jesuit Conspiracy Theory)
The next two illustrations from the documentary Jesus the Lost 40 Days on (History Channel) shows some of the portraits of "Jesus" performing the Hermetic sign. Exactly the same sign that Dr. Bacchiochi performs in the previous picture.
The following illustrations are Catholic Portraits of Jesus, Mary and the Apostle Peter all performing the same Hermetic hand sign "As Above So Below".
The next illustrations shows Mary and the Apostle Peter doing the Hermetic hand symbol.

“Flee from Babylon! Run for your lives! Do not be destroyed because of her sins. It is time for the LORD’s vengeance; he will repay her what she deserves.” (Jeremiah 51:6 (NIV 1984)
"Then I heard another voice from heaven say: 'Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes." (Revelations 18:4-5 NIV 1984)
