Satanic Temple's Holiday Display at Illinois State Rotunda

On Monday, December 20th, 2021, the Illinois State rotunda unveiled its winter holiday display which included the Satanic Temple's depiction of the pagan deity, Baphomet, as a baby in a manger wrapped in linen to commemorate the holiday of Sol Invictus.

Sol Invictus (Unconquered Sun) was a Syrian sun god adopted as the official pagan god of the Roman Empire. But what does this have to do with Bible Prophecy?

Satan's desire is always to mimic God.

In the middle of the 7-year Tribulation, Satan will mimic God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

  • In Revelation 13:1, Satan appears as the dragon mimicking God the Father.

  • In Revelation 13:1-10, the Antichrist is the beast from the sea, who mimics Jesus, God the Son.

  • In Revelation 13:11-17, the False Prophet is the beast from the earth, who mimics God the Holy Spirit.

Daniel 9:26 tells us the future Antichrist will be of Roman descent.

So, isn't it interesting that the Satanic Temple is celebrating the birth of an "Antichrist," Baphomet, a Roman deity?

Could it be that Satan is trying to get people used to the idea of the Antichrist in place of Jesus?

Many will look at this holiday display and be deceived. They won't see how this fits Bible Prophecy like a glove.

Let's pray for those around us and share the true message of salvation through Jesus alone as well as Satan’s desire to deceive by disguising himself as an angel of light. (2 Corinthians 11:14)
