First, let me give you some background history on goats. Goats are destructive, and will destroy any and everything in their pathway. Goats do not do well with others. Christ called us to be one body. Like sheep, they stick together.
Shepherds protect the flock from outside hurt & harm. Whereas, Goatherds protect everything around on the outside from the goat.
Are you familiar with the saying, I’m The Goat? Do you know where it derived from? Do you know why those you look up to, listen too and worship through music utilize this saying? Do we ever stop to ask why? Why has the entertainment industry adopted the Baphomet sign? Why does famous basketball players, football players, Queen/King of Hip Hop etc, proclaim to be goats? As they say, The Greatest of All Time. Why did Obama pose for News Weekly proclaiming to be the goat? God of All Time?
I’m glad you asked! Satan is linked with goats in scripture. One in particular, Matthew 25:31-46.
The Satanic statue or idol has a goat’s head.
The idol contains a pentagram on its forehead and is part-animal, part-human as well as part-female, part-male, a conglomeration of opposites. All goes in the world of sin.
Modern Baphomet symbolizes sexual and phallic (an erect penis), it also includes symbols with white & dark moons. Worship of the universe and not worshiping the “One” who created the universe.
This symbolism aligns with paganism and one of the main figures of worship in the occult. In which “the” secret clandestine society uses quite often.
Occult: supernatural, mystical, or magical beliefs, practices, or phenomena. Examples would be Voodoo, Ouija boards, magic spells, tarot card readings, psychics, yoga, praying and recharging crystals. The list goes on and new age spiritualism is very dark.
Everything we know today has a spiritual connotation. The battle of Good vs Evil. In the Jewish community, there is an important holiday: Yom Kippur, reflected as the day of Atonement. Meaning the day God took on all the sins of the world to be slain on the cross because sin = death. Christ died so you wouldn’t have to spend eternity in hell.
Furthermore, During this particular holiday, there are two goats to be utilized per (Leviticus 16). The azazel goat, would have all the sins symbolically placed on it when the high priest laid hands on it. Once the sins “were placed” they would drive the goat out into the desert, thus driving out Israel’s sins into the desert. The azazel goat, represented Satan, or evil. Now it clicks as to why Jesus found Satan out in the desert (Matthew 4:1-11).
Deserts represent cursed places, absent of God’s blessing. This explains why in (Matthew 4:1-11), Jesus found Satan in the desert. God’s blessing often comes through the form of rain.
Some examples are:
” Leviticus 26:4 – Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.
Deuteronomy 11:11 – But the land, whither ye go to possess it, [is] a land of hills and valleys, [and] drinketh water of the rain of heaven:
2 Chronicles 2:26-27
When the heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; [yet] if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou dost afflict them; Then hear thou from heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, when thou hast taught them the good way, wherein they should walk; and send rain upon thy land, which thou hast given unto thy people for an inheritance.
Based on scripture reference in Matthew 25:31-46. Are you sheep or a goat? In Gods word, God says, my sheep hear my voice. The God of all Gods never references goats of anything royal or importance to him. Why do you denounce the position God has given to you to such filth? Such evil? What you are inherently saying when you reference yourself as a goat, you are proclaiming to be the devils child. Are you a child of Baal? Or do you want to learn how to be a child of God?
