The Wickedness of the Swastika

The swastika was not widely utilized by followers of the Abrahamic religions. Where it does exist, it is not portrayed as an explicitly religious symbol.

– Swastika, Wikipedia

The two swastikas, also commonly referred to as broken, or crooked, crosses are in a moral sense, the epitome of wickedness and evil. Some might claim that the swastikas are symbolic of nature itself, given the fact that water drains one way in the North and the opposite way in the South, or that tornadoes and hurricanes resemble them in their destructive activity. This is all true, but in the moral dimension, in the acts and practices of mankind, the swastikas are best seen as representing the forces which are actively opposed to the Judeo-Christian tradition and the Bible. This can best be visualized in the following manner:

This simple chart is a form of Judeo-Christian truth containing multiple layers of facts and traditions which combine to form a comprehensive truth that will inevitably be understood by everyone. For starters, here are few basic factual cornerstones which provide ample proof concerning the standard truth shown

 

– In nature, the Sun (man’s Left hand) rises in the East travels across the sky and sets in the West to be replaced by the Moon (man’s Right hand).
– The Left hand of Man is symbolized by the Sun because Judeo-Christian practices and traditions are the future, and they have been founded upon the civilized use of the left hand to clean the butt after defecation. This proves mankind more than capable of progressing, advancing, and perhaps even evolving well beyond their animal roots.
– The backwards (counterclockwise) nature of mankind’s Right hand is perfectly symbolized by the swastika twisted to the left, a sign of pure evil. God’s original plan for man to never kill or eat any animal has yet to be fulfilled and was a direct commandment of God even before the Garden of Eden (Genesis 1:27-31).
– The Northern Hemisphere has always been considered up, not down, to be above and not below, superior, not inferior. Just as nearly everyone is Right-handed, tellingly symbolized by the Swastika twisted to Left, literally all water located North of the equator usually always drains down to the Left. The opposite is true in the Southern Hemisphere.
– Mankind’s RIght hand (the Moon) eats and drinks the dead material of plants and animals, while his Left hand (the Sun) assists in leaving behind feces, that which will someday become soil where more life can take root, grow, and prosper. This is much like how death traditionally symbolized by the moon (man’s Right hand) feeds on life, especially through aging and disease, just as the sun (man’s Left hand) provides life and continually gives away its heat and light without ever stopping.
– Mankind’s Right hand was created by God to do good, but throughout history he has done evil instead.
– The brutality and insanity exhibited by the Nazis, whose flag featured a swastika twisted to the Left, clearly shows that extremist, fanatical politics (perfectly represented by the two sick and twisted swastikas) are inherent enemies of the Judeo-Christian tradition.

Tragically, the pride and arrogance of some anti-Christian thinkers continues, most especially those who deliberately reject obvious, age-old Judeo-Christian truths as being incompatible with their neo-Pagan outlook. At the same time, their blatantly crooked patterns of thought also appear more than willing to accept evil, perversion, hypocrisy, corruption, nepotism, and crime as the normal state of reality both in this world and the next. The simple, basic symbolic view of reality as shown above stands in clear opposition to their modern, relativistic viewpoint, just as the Bible clearly describes their crooked thinking, which has not changed for thousands of years.

Better is the poor man walking in his simplicity, than the rich in crooked ways. (Proverbs 28:6)

He who loves transgression loves strife. He who raises his door seeks destruction. He who has a crooked mind finds no good, and he who is perverted in his language falls into evil. (Proverbs 17:19-21)

Her feet go down to death, her steps lead straight to the grave. She gives no thought to the way of life, her paths are crooked, but she knows it not. (Proverbs 5:5-7)

Discretion will guard you. Understanding will watch over you, to deliver you from the way of evil, from the man who speaks perverse things, from those who leave the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of darkness; who delight in doing evil and rejoice in the perversity of evil, whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.  (Proverbs 2:11-15)

Both swastikas turn away from the central cross to clearly indicate their deliberate turning away from obedience and practices of the Judeo-Christian laws of God. Thus, the overall understanding that the Judeo-Christian age-old dislike and animosity towards both symbols provides a clear foundation for the simple moderate truth of the Bible and the natural wisdom of the Cross to prevail. There is a also a solution to the problem of man’s crooked ways and paths which is clearly described throughout the Bible. The instructions to mankind are quite explicit and that is to never turn aside to the left hand or to the right hand, thus resulting in the crooked swastika. Here are the pertinent BIblical passages:

Do not turn to the right hand nor to the left, Remove your foot from evil. (Proverbs 4:27)

And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, and walked in all the way of David his father, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left. (2 Kings 22:2)

You will be careful to do therefore as the LORD your God has commanded you, you shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.  (Deuteronomy 5:32)

According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach thee and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do. Thou shalt not decline from the sentence which they shall show thee to the right hand nor to the left. (Deuteronomy 17:11)

(So) that his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment to the right hand or to the left, to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he and his children, in the midst of Israel.  (Deuteronomy 17:20)

Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them. (Deuteronomy 28:14)

Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you, do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.  (Joshua 1:7)

Be very strong; be careful to obey all that is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, without turning aside to the right hand or to the left. (Joshua 23:6)

As shown in the chart above, the Christian Cross, symbolizing the entire Biblical tradition, stands in direct opposition to the two swastikas and their multiple layers of wickedness and disobedience. For the Judeo-Christian believer, God’s Left and Right Hands are utilized for mercy to soften justice, for fairness to balance exceptionalism, and for understanding to oppose efficiency. while obedience to His commandments helps to save people from the consequences of their own crooked ways and paths. In sum, both the swastikas represent a deliberate turning away from the truth of the Cross, and the truth about God the Father. The LORD God of the Bible desires that no-one lose their way forward by turning aside to the left or the right, both of which are step backwards and away from the goodness and light of the Judeo-Christian tradition.

The Two Hands of God, Part I. The Dangers of the Right Hand Path

The Right Hand

Part I. The Dangers of the Right Hand Path

Most everyone desires to be righteous, to be good, shunning evil in order to carefully avoid being the sinister one, the bad guy. Even so, the eternal Right Hand of God and His inherent goodness does not necessarily mean that the Right Hand of mankind, indeed of any man, is in anyway equal or similar to that which mere mortals have yet to fully understand. This is clearly indicated in Scriptures even though there are numerous passages which also allude the mighty power and saving grace of the LORD God’s Right Hand.

Indeed, the question that all believers should be asking themselves is who stands at the Right Hand of man. Many would be quick to assume that it is the LORD who remains at the Right Hand of all God-fearing Jews and Christian. The Bible itself states this quite bluntly in the following manner:

The LORD is at Your right hand. He will shatter kings in the day of His wrath. (Psalm 110:5) 

For He stands at the right hand of the needy to save him from those who judge his soul. (Psalm 109:31)

The LORD is your keeper. The LORD is your shade on your right hand. (Psalm 121:5)

This ancient Hebrew teaching permeates both Jewish and Christian belief systems, where those of faith have the confidence that the invisible, yet sanctifying, presence of God always stands beside them at their own right hand, protecting them from the Devil. Certain other passages in the Bible tell a different story however. Two extremely relevant verses in Scriptures reads as follows:

Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him. (Zechariah 3:1) 

Appoint a wicked man over him and let an accuser stand at his right hand. (Psalm 109:6)

With that in mind, even the most devout and sinless believer should start realizing that placing too much trust in the Right hand, or the Right Hand path of blind faith, may be a little more dangerous than they might have thought previously.

And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead (Revelation 13:16) 

This is not to say that evil is good, or excusable, or even understandable, it is more a matter of steering those who follow the Judeo-Christian tradition in the correct direction. Rabbi Joshua ben Joseph (Jesus Christ) made this a central part of His teaching in that He was constantly reminded His disciples and followers that, in the end, only God can be the Judge of one’s fellow man (or woman). As the Gospels state:

If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell. (Matthew 5:30)

Indeed, as other parts of the Bible describe it, especially the Old Testament, the only truly ‘correct’ direction that believers should trust in is neither to the Left Hand or to the Right, but straight forward and dead ahead. Here are two fairly common sense instructions from the LORD God Himself:

Decline not to the right hand, nor to the left: turn away thy foot from evil. For the LORD knoweth the ways that are on the right hand: but those are perverse which are on the left hand. But he will make thy courses straight, he will bring forward thy ways in peace. (Proverbs 4:27) 

According to His law; and thou shalt follow their sentence: neither shalt thou decline to the right hand nor to the left hand. (Deuteronomy 17:11)

It wasn’t so long ago that those who were Left-Handed were considered by many superstitious people to be evil in some mysterious way. Indeed, the word sinister comes directly from the Latin word for the Left Hand. Readers should never forget, however, that throughout the past few thousand years of history, it has been the Right Hand, and almost never the Left Hand, that has been responsible for nearly all the rapes, murders, and other evil acts of cruelty and injustice that have occurred  far too many times since Cain first killed Abel with his own Right Hand.

May the LORD God bless you in the name of the Judeo-Christian tradition.

And the Lord summoned me, and said to me: ‘Enoch, sit down on my left with Gabriel.’ And I bowed down to the Lord, and the Lord spoke.  (II Enoch 24:1-2)
