BAAL the Religion of SATANISM
By Loren Davis
There are only 2 religions: serving Jehovah God or Satan
The rivalry on earth between them started with Adam and Eve.
*SATAN IS CALLED THE GOD OF THIS WORLD 2 Corinthians 4:4,
Any religion or philosophy that does not believe in the God of the Bible and Jesus Christ is Baal.
Baal religion began with Nimrod. Nimrod means, ‘he rebelled’ or literally, ‘he returned to Baal’ or Satan.
The people of Babylon built the Tower of Babel, which was a tower to their god Baal. Ge. 11:2
NIMROD WAS SAID TO BE THE SUN GOD
*Genesis 10:8-12 NIMROD’s kingdom was BABEL
After Nimrod died, HIS BODY was cut up and BURNED, and his ashes were sent throughout the land.(Judges 19:29). This is when cremation started. After Nimrod’s death, his wife Semaramis bore a son she named TAMMUZ. She told the people that Tammuz was “Nimrod reborn” or REINCARNATED. Semaramis claimed that her son was supernaturally conceived and that he was the promised seed, the “savior”. She, through Satan, must have heard of the coming Messiah to be born of a woman .
As the Babylonian religion developed, not only was the child Tammuz worshipped, but also his mother Semmaramis. Nimrod was greatly mourned among the people, and his wife told the people that he was now THE SUN GOD. They now began to teach that FIRE was HIS REPRESENTATION on earth. The people started symbolically BURNING CANDLES as a part of their worship to Nimrod. Burning candles now became a religious ritual in Baal worship.
Baal was also symbolized BY TREES, PILLARS, ANIMALS, FISH, (The Fish god was Dagon)), and SUN IMAGES. The Babylonian religion was formed around the traditions set up by Nimrod, his wife Semaramis, and her child Tammuz. Since Tammuz was proclaimed “the reincarnation of Nimrod”, Tammuz was also recognized as the SUN GOD. TAMMUZ WAS KNOWN in Baal AS THE “SON” OF GOD.
The word Baalzebub comes from its root word BAAL.
*II Kings 1:2 talks of BAALZEBUB, the god of Ekron.” Notice the spelling, BAAL-zebub.
IN THE NEW TESTAMENT
*Matthew 12:24 “But when the Pharisees heard it, they said of Jesus, That He casts out devils by BEELZEBUB THE PRINCE OF THE DEVILS.” Beelzebub is another name for Satan. So Baal worship is disguised Satan Worship.
During the time of the Great Tribulation, the Bible says that SATAN WILL DEMAND TO BE WORSHIPPED OPENLY AND EXCLUSIVELY. Revelation 13:4
THE SPREADING OF BAAL WORSHIP
*Genesis 11: 1-9 tells us that God scattered the people because of their desire to return to idolatry and to build the tower of Babel which was to Baal. GOD confused the language and DISPERSED THE People of Babylon. Wherever they went they spread THE BAAL RELIGION. As people were scattered throughout the earth they took with them their worship of “mother and child” and the idols and symbols of Baal. The BABYLON religion of BAAL WAS THE SOURCE OF ALL PRIMITIVE RELIGIONS OF THE WORLD.
The name Baal was connected to cities where Canaanite gods were worshiped like Baal-Peor. Baal Worship in Canaan centered around Baal as both THE SUN GOD and THE STORM GOD.
HERE IS HOW TO IDENTIFY BAAL WORSHIP IN RELIGION AND SOCIETY TODAY
Although the word Baal is hardly ever heard today, this ancient religion is very much alive and thriving throughout the world . It can be identified today by its ancient symbols which have been integrated into religious and secular architecture, monuments, images, pictures, music, mores, culture, and doctrines. The names may have changed, but the symbols, beliefs, and mores are very identifiable. They are exactly the same as they have always been. They have never changed!
DIFFERENT BAAL DENOMINATIONS
The Baal religion is as diverse as Christianity with all of its denominations. In The Northern Kingdom of Israel under the leadership of Ahab and Jezebel, BAAL became THE STATE GOD.
*1 Kings 16:31 speaking of Ahab says, “that he took to WIFE JEZEBEL and went and SERVED BAAL, and worshipped him.”
SCRIPTURES PROFILING THE RELIGION OF BAAL
*2 Kings 23:5 is the primary scripture to identify Baal Worship. “And he put down the IDOLATROUS PRIESTS, whom the kings of Judah had ordained to BURN INCENSE TO THE SUN, THE MOON, AND THE PLANETS, (astrology), and to all THE HOST OF HEAVEN” (the departed dead or ANCESTOR WORSHIP). Burning incense, worship of the sun, moon, astrology, and ancestor worship are all earmarks of the Baal religion.
*Romans 1:25 “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and WORSHIPPED AND SERVED THE CREATURE MORE THAN THE CREATOR”.

*2 Corinthians 4:4 “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not.” Abortion is a form of human sacrifice. Satan is the god of this world.
The beliefs and doctrines of Baal are totally opposite and hostile to The Ten Commandments.

36. BAAL BELIEVED IN THE 100% SOVEREIGNTY OF THE GODS
They believed that one’s life was destined by fate, the stars, and the gods alone. Baal followers believed their lives were controlled by the zodiac, the stars; therefore, they had no personal responsibility for their actions.
The practice of Transubstantiation is one of the oldest practices of ancient religions. It is known as “Eating the god”. Transubstantiation was practiced by many tribes in many nations. This concept came from CANNIBALISTIC societies. In Canaan, to become a priest of Baal, one had to eat “human flesh”. CANNIBAL came from the root word Cahna-Baal. Human sacrifice was THE COMMUNION OF BAAL. The word “host” came from the original meaning of “sacrifice” or “victim”. As a part of the Baal COMMUNION, the priests of Baal would hold up A SUN DISC WAFER on a pole and offer it to Baal.
39. TATTOOING AND BODY PIERCING

Baal required that men cut and torture themselves as a form of atonement and worship. Tattoos and body piercing are indicators of Baal.

We first hear about cremation when Nimrod’s body was cremated, and his ashes spread throughout the Babylonian empire.
42. ANTI- SEMITIC (JEW) AND ANTI-ISRAEL

46. BAAL FOLLOWERS OPERATE WITH A HUMANISTIC FAITH
At the Tower of Babel: *Genesis 11:6 “And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now NOTHING WILL BE RESTRAINED FROM THEM, WHICH THEY HAVE IMAGINED TO DO.”
They did not do things by Faith in God, but by the power of THEIR HUMAN SPIRIT; the power of POSITIVE THINKING; FAITH IN THEMSELVES, of what they could do.
47. BAAL USES AND PERVERTS THE BIBLE
*Matthew 4:5-6 “Then THE DEVIL taketh setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: FOR IT IS WRITTEN,” Perverts the scriptures.
48. SECURITY CONSCIOUS
*Luke 12:18-19 “THOU HAST MUCH GOODS LAID UP FOR MANY YEARS; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.”
*Daniel 5:1-4 “…praised the gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood.”

50. BELIEF IN A TRANSITIONAL PLACE AFTER DEATH
*1 Corinthians 15:29 “Else what shall they do which are BAPTIZED FOR THE DEAD. This also is linked with burning candles for the dead which began at Babylon with Nimrod.
*Isaiah 8:19-20 CONDEMNS PRAYING TO THE DEAD. “And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God: FOR THE LIVING TO THE DEAD?”
51. In Baal religions WOMEN SUFFERED A HARD LIFE AND WERE NOT HONORED. They were bought and sold like cattle.
52. DOMES were put on their temples. They are half-arches representing the visible heavens. A dome, astrologically portrays itself as an image of the spiritual world above a city.
54. SIRIUS, is a FIVE POINTED STAR. Sirius was considered the embodiment of ISIS, the Egyptian goddess, their Queen of Heaven. Sirius was granted god or goddess status among the Egyptian and Babylonians. SIRIUS WAS ASTRONOMICALLY THE FOUNDATION EGYPT’S ENTIRE RELIGIOUS SYSTEM.
It is a high symbol of spirituality. It is used in astrology and the horoscope. It used by the Masons, and is on many national flags.
The FIVE POINTED STAR is also known in Wicca witchcraft as the PENTAGRAM
*43 “Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and THE STAR of your god Remphan, FIGURES which ye made to worship them:” *Acts 7:39, 42, 43 “To whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust him from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt,”
55. In Baal societies they use SYMBOLS OF CORN AND WHEAT in their worship
56. In Baal they WORSHIPPED THE VIRGIN the goddess Ashteroth.
Astrologers see the constellation Virgo, as The Beautiful Virgin. This identified with Isis, Fatima and the Virgin Mary.
58. HOLIDAYS. The word holidays came from the pagans’ holy days when they venerated the sun gods, etc. That explains why even on religious holidays they are days of excessive drinking and fornication.
59. WORLD DOMINATION
*Revelation 13:14-15 “And DECEIVED THEM THAT DWELL ON THE EARTH.”…and will cause ALL to worship him.
When SATAN TEMPTED JESUS, he said “If you will fall down and worship me, I will give you all the riches and power over the kingdoms of the earth.” Jesus said, “Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Get thee behind me Satan.”
What will you say to Satan’s temptation for money and power? Don’t be deceived by Satan, the god of this world. Ye shall serve the Lord and Him alone shall you serve.
