What do these religious symbols mean? They all have pagan origins going back in time. They have attributed other meaning to those of a certain faith, but the Bible says that we are not to have any graven images in our worship of Him. We are to worship Him in spirit and in truth.

A star (or stars) and crescent featuring in some combination form the basis of symbols widely found across the ancient world, with examples attested from the Eastern Mediterranean, Persia and Central Asia. The symbol emerged into popular use during the 19th century as a modernistic national symbol for the Ottoman Empire during the Westernizing Tanzimat reforms. The Ottoman flag of 1844 with a white "ay-yıldız" (Turkish for "star-crescent") on a red background continues to be in use as the flag of the Republic of Turkey with minor modifications. Other states formerly part of the Ottoman Empire also used the symbol, including Tunisia (1831), Libya (1951–1969 and after 2011) and Algeria (1958). The same symbol was used in other national flags introduced during the 20th century, including the flags of Azerbaijan (1918), Pakistan (1947), Malaysia (1948), and Mauritania (1959). In Unicode, a "star and crescent" symbol is encoded at U+262A: The star and crescent appear, used in combination, in and around ancient Israel. It has been associated with the Moabites (14th or early 13th – 6th century BC), as the symbol or symbols appear on what are thought to be Moabite name seals. Crescents appearing together with a star or stars are a common feature of Sumerian iconography, the crescent usually being associated with the moon god Sin (Nanna to the Sumerians) and the star (often identified as Venus) with Ishtar (Inanna to the Sumerians). However, in this context, there is a third element often seen, that being the sun disk of Shamash. Academic discussion of a star or stars together with crescents in Sumerian representations does not always clearly indicate if they appear in isolation (the "star and crescent" as such) or as part of a triad of symbols, "the three celestial emblems, the sun disk of Shamash (Utu to the Sumerians), the crescent of Sin (Nanna), and the star of Ishtar (Inanna to the Sumerians)" or "the crescent of Sin (the moon god), the star of Ishtar and the ray of Shamash". Nevertheless, later use of the star and crescent by the Parthians, and other Iranian dynasties is often traced to earlier use in Mesopotamia. As one scholar observed, "[t]he Parthian king Mithradates I conquered Mesopotamia around 147 BC, and Susa in about 140 BC A later Parthian king, Orodes II (58-38 BC), issued coins at Susa and elsewhere which display a star and crescent on the obverse. The succeeding ruler, Phraates IV (38-3/2 BC), minted coins showing either a star alone or a star with crescent moon. In representing the star and crescent on their coins the Parthians thus adopted traditional symbols used in Mesopotamia and Elam more than two millennia before their own arrival in those parts." Along these lines, some scholars maintain that later use of the symbol arose from Babylonian mythology in which the juxtaposition of Sin (moon god, father of time) and Shamash (supreme ruling sun god, judge of heaven and earth) was a metaphor for the cosmic powers given to the Babylonian king to rule. The star and crescent was also the emblem of Mithradates VI Eupator. "His royal emblem, an eight rayed star and the crescent moon, represented the dynasty's patron gods, Zeus Stratios, or Ahuramazda, and Men Pharmacou, a Persian form of the native moon goddess." Other scholars have suggested that the star and crescent are more directly related to the cult of the god Mithra. Ustinova associates the star and crescent motif attested in a number of finds in the Bosporan Kingdom (which date from the 5th century BC to the 1st century AD) with the cult of Mithras, and indicates the star and the crescent together constituted the emblem of Pontus and its kings, asserting that it was introduced to the Bosporus by Mithradates and his successors, where it is attested on coins, locally produced jewelry and other objects. She suggests that this emblem indicates "the possibility of an earlier association of the Pontic dynasty with the cult of mounted Mithra. Mithra in fact must have been one of the most venerated gods of the Pontic Kingdom, since its rulers bore the theomorphic name of Mithradates […] although direct evidence for this cult is rather meager." McGing also notes the association of the star and crescent with Mithradates VI, discussing its appearance on his coins, and its survival in the coins of the Bosporan Kingdom where "[t]he star and crescent appear on Pontic royal coins from the time of Mithradates III and seem to have had oriental significance as a dynastic badge of the Mithridatic family, or the arms of the country of Pontus."

EXACTLY 1,335 days after the start of my revelation timeline (April 11th, 2012), we have the Cresant Moon and Star of Islam manifesting in the sky. This all happens the day before the Pope (false prophet) announces the Extraordinary year of jubilee for mercy and compassion. Not sure how this all ties together, but it's interesting that The Islamic States wants a worldwide Caliphate. This symbol of the Muslim world was founded by Osman of the Ottaman Empire who kept this symbol as he had a dream of the crescent moon spanning from one end of the world to the other!

This video explains the verses in the Bible that talk about the demonic crescent moon and star symbol of Satan. Satan has always used this symbol in other false gods to receive worship, even before Islam. He is the creator of this evil symbol. This video also talks about the verses in the Bible regarding Mecca, and how it is Satanic and that the Muslims bowing down to the Kaaba Stone are actually bowing down directly to Satan himself. The Kaaba Stone of Mecca is most likely the Abomination of Desolation as described in Daniel 9:27 and 12:11.

This episode uncovers some of the secrets of our moon. Where did it come from? What’s its true purpose? There are a lot of anomalies about the moon which stand out as peculiar to say the least. When we compare it in size to other planets and their moons, ours is much larger. In fact, our moon is bigger than pluto itself! When scientists were first trying to figure out how it came to be, they first said that a large planet sized rock crashed into the earth, then stayed within earth’s magnetic pull. When that model didn’t quite fit, they speculated that perhaps it hit twice, then became our moon. Needless to say, we’re still not sure, for even this model doesn’t fit perfectly...

This video was made possible by Rev Michelle Hopkins Mann - http://revmichellehopkinsmann.myfreesites.net/ Muslims are following a false prophet who is Literally a child Molester, a prophet pretender, a womanizer, an adulterer, a thief and a killer. This is who All Muslims put their Eternal faith & trust in. Islam is a religion in which Allah requires Muslims to send their sons to DIE for him. Christianity is a Faith in which God sent his Son Jesus Christ to Die for you. Allah is the god of Muhammad and Cannot be the God of the Bible. Allah is the lord of the worlds - Sura 1:1 2nd Corinthians 4:4 - In whom the god of this world (satan) hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. God is not a Name, it is a Title. Muhammad ended up in the same place as everyone else who rejects Jesus Christ. Believing in Jesus Christ means Trusting in the finished work on the cross that he sacrificed for us when he paid for our sins on the cross at Calvary. Allah is the god of Muhammad and Cannot be the God of the Bible - Here is the Proof - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I36wqDBdArk Do Christians and Muslims Worship the Same God? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjNlQ... There are only two methods of salvation in all the religions of the world: grace and works. Christianity is a religion of salvation by grace alone: "For by grace through faith you have been saved, not of works" (Eph. 2:8-9). All other systems rely totally or in part on the works of the believer to merit salvation. In Islam, forgiveness is based on a combination of Allah's grace and the Muslim's works. On the Day of Judgment, if a Muslim's good works outweigh his bad ones and if Allah so wills it, he may be forgiven of all his sins and then enter into paradise. Therefore, Islam is a religion of salvation by works because it combines man's works with Allah's grace (the god of Muhammad and the Quran) The Quran teaches forgiveness based upon Allah's grace and man's works. Can any Muslim be assured of his salvation before his God? No. Numerous Muslims say they do not know if they will make it to heaven because they do not know if their good deeds outweigh their bad ones. Unlike Christianity where we have assurance of salvation (John 6:47; 1 John 5:13), there is no assurance in Islam because it rests in part on the obedience and good works of Muslims. Unlike Christianity where salvation is an unearned, free gift from God (Rom. 4:3; Eph. 2:8-9), the Muslim can at best only hope he has performed enough good works to outweigh his bad ones, and that Allah so wills to forgive him. In Christianity, we appeal to the work of Christ on the cross (1 Pet. 2:24) completely and totally and in nothing in ourselves as a basis for forgiveness because no good thing dwells within us (Rom. 7:18), that is, apart from Christ. We sincerely believe in Christ, but we never claim that forgiveness is in any way merited or gained because of our sincerity or our works. Rather, our forgiveness is based on faith and trust in God in what He has done for us in Christ. Salvation in Christianity is God-centered. In Islam, forgiveness of sins is man-centered in that it is dependent upon man's sincerity and man's works in combination with Allah's forgiveness. In Islam, faith in God is not enough. In Islam, the Muslim's works will be weighed on the Day of Judgment, and it will then be decided who is saved and who is not--based upon whether the person was a Muslim, whether or not they were sincere in repentance, and whether or not they performed enough good works to outweigh the bad ones. Is the Islamic system of salvation really enough to save Muslims? They will say that it is. But, as a Christian, We cannot see how anyone in Islam can have security and honest expectation of obtaining Paradise. How can anyone who must be completely sincere in repentance and be required to perform more good works than bad ever hope to make it to heaven? The problem with being saved by God's grace and human works is that human works are never sufficient to please God. God is infinite and holy. How can we finite sinners ever hope to please God by our deeds? Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh - Jesus says “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am", (John 13:13). ‘Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father [God]” (John 14:9). “I and the Father [God] are one” (John 10:30). Jesus is far more than God’s mere messenger. Jesus Christ is God’s one and only Son (John 3:16-18). Further, He is the Second Person of the Trinity, God incarnate—God Himself (John 1:1,14; 5:18). Jesus claimed to be both “the Lord” and “God”’ No one can deny that Muslims reject the biblical Jesus. Yet it was Jesus Himself who warned all men, “If you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins” (John 8:24).
