Greater Light vs. lesser light

Besides the so-called signs of the Zodiac and astrology, how have pagan religions corrupted the intended symbolism of the cosmos in Scripture?

In addition to figures in the constellations being patterns for false gods (lions, calves, etc.) other heavenly bodies have been used to represent false gods and are counterfeits of God’s truth. 

In Scripture, the sun represents Jesus Christ (the greater light).

Genesis 1:16
And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

The moon (the lesser light) represents Satan (the name means ‘light bearer’) – the one who rules the darkness.  Night always typifies evil.

Ephesians 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

2 Corinthians 11:14
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Allah, the desert moon god, is represented by a crescent moon.  Muslims don’t realize their moon god represents Satan—‘the lesser light who rules the darkness.’

Satan is the prince of the power of the air and he’s the ruler of this earth and its world system.  Satan has a kingdom.

Galatians 1:4
Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

Ephesians 2:2
Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this [present evil] world, according to the prince of the power of the air [Satan], the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

Walid Shoebat is a well-known example of a Muslim who was converted to Christianity from Islam. When Walid read the Bible he realized that the god they were worshipping was Lucifer/Satan. He and others will tell you that many of the 99 names of Allah in the Koran are descriptions of Satan in Scripture, such as “The Great Deceiver.”

Why is their god called a great deceiver?  Because in Islam it’s permissible to lie to your enemy, the ‘infidel.’  That’s how the antichrist is going to deal with Israel.  He’ll say one thing to Israel, and another to his followers.

Hopefully this helps!
