Why Do Both Popes And Nazi Soldiers Make The Two Finger Salute?

This was the exact oath, with the two finger salute, required of not only the Nazi military and associated groups like the Hitler youth, it was required of all citizens as well

Adolf Hitler’s control over the German people was more religious and spiritual than it was political, just like every Pope that has ever held the office.

“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Revelation 13:15 (KJV)

Berlin, Germany 1934: Shortly after Adolf Hitler consolidated his control over Germany, he then stepped in to exert his control over the hearts and the minds of the German people. Like all evil dictators, allegiance was given to Hitler first and foremost, with loyalty to the German nation a distant second place. This was the exact oath, with the two finger salute, required of not only the Nazi military and associated groups like the Hitler youth, but it was required of all German citizens as well:

“I swear by God this sacred oath that to the Leader of the German empire and people, Adolf Hitler, supreme commander of the armed forces, I shall render unconditional obedience and that as a brave soldier I shall at all times be prepared to give my life for this oath.” – The Fuehrer Oath. August 2nd, 1934

We are told that it is a sign that means “peace”, or it is a “V for Victory”, but nothing could be further from the truth. The two finger salute, used by both Nazi soldiers in allegiance to Hitler and by Popes on their followers, is an occult symbol of war and conquest.

According to Codex Magic, the sign can be a sign of Satan, of malediction or the horned pagan god, Pan. It can also represent Vulcan, the ancient god of fire and destruction. The sign can also be taken to represent a chevron, the symbol of “Wrath and Destruction”. American hippies adapted the V for victory in war sign to mean peace. The hand gesture quickly became the hand sign for peace. It is anything else but that.


Paintings like these do indeed show a Christ, but it’s not the Lord’s Christ. It is Antichrist.

All through the history of Catholic art over the past 1,500 years, countless paintings of Christ have been made with the Christ represented making the two finger salute. This gesture, in which his first two fingers and his thumb are extended and his third and fourth finger are closed, is among the most frequently occurring of Christ’s hand gestures in Catholic art. It emerged as a sign of benediction (or blessing) in early Catholic and Byzantine art, and its use continued through the Medieval period, and into the Renaissance. But as the Catholic persecutions of Christians increased, during times like the Spanish Inquisition, this symbol was proven to be a sign of conquest, dominance and eventually the death of all those who would oppose Roman spiritual rule. When you see a Pope, Cardinal or priest using this sign today, it is a sign that the Vatican and the Catholic system will not rest until you are under it’s control. For this same reason, all popes kiss the ground whenever they land in a foreign country, they are claiming it for Rome.

The two finger salute is a sign that is satanic in origin, and wherever and whenever it is used it is always a “bad sign”. The connection between both the Nazis and the Vatican using this sign gets especially more evil when you consider how the Vatican not only signed a pact with Hitler, they also helped thousands of Nazis to escape through Switzerland after WWII.

Adolf Hitler was not a Christian, he was not even a Catholic though that was his upbringing. Hitler, in his sick mind, was a god and demanded worship as a god, and the German people took an oath and gave him worship. All popes claim to sit in the seat of Jesus Christ, and to be infallible when speaking on spiritual matters from their “throne”. Not only that, they are called “Holy Father”, a title in the Bible given to God alone.(John 17:11 KJV). The two finger salute both groups make is an outward symbol of the spiritual rule they exercise upon their followers.

It is the sign of a curse. And for those of you left behind to face the time of Jacob’s trouble, you will see the Antichrist using this sign as well.
