SANTA CLAUS : The Great Pretender Pt 7

Cary G Dean.

Now we shall examine Santa in the light of the Word of God.

Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. 2 Corinthians 2:11


You ever noticed how easy it is to transform "Satan" from "Santa"? Just move the "n" to the end. And presto! "Satan" appears. . . Hmmm….

An internet Google search on "Satan Claus" [not Santa Claus – but SATAN Claus] found over 1,700 hits! Obviously, there are many that tie the two together.

The rearranging of letters (called anagrams) to hide secret names or words has long been practiced in the occult. The Jewish Encyclopedia writes of the Jewish occult book called the Cabala:

The golden age for anagrams began with the Cabala.

The Platonists had strange notions as to the influence of anagrammatic virtues, particularly of anagrams evolved from names of persons.

It is not surprising, therefore, that the cabalists, like all the Neoplatonists, pretended to discover occult qualities in proper names and in their anagrams.

One of the most well known anagram in the occult world is the name of Sanat Kumara.

Sanat is better known as Satan.

Constance Cumbey, writes in her best-selling, new-age expose, The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, "they [New Agers] freely call Sanat Kumara (Satan) 'God'.

And their doctrinal reference books by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky and Alice Ann Bailey freely cross-reference Sanat Kumara with Venus.

In occult writings, Lucifer and Venus are one and the same."

(Constance Cumbey, The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, p. 138)

Texe Marrs writes of 'Sanat' in Dark Secrets of the New Age:

The New Age offers a being called Sanat Kumara.

'Sanat' is obviously a thinly veiled reference to Satan;

Nevertheless, New Age teachers evidently believe that the new spelling will alleviate the concerns of those not yet ready to confess Satan as their Lord and Messiah.

(Texe Marrs, Dark Secrets of the New Age, pp. 79-80)

Interesting. . . Where does that put Lord S-A-N-T-A?

H.P. Blavatsky, the Satanist and new age teacher writes in The Secret Doctrine:

Many a mysterious sacred name. . . conveys to the profane ear no more than some ordinary, and often vulgar [common] word, because it is concealed anagrammatically or otherwise.

(H.P. Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine, Vol II, p. 78)

Like S-A-N-T-A?

Blavatsky also writes, the name is not important - but the letters.

"The name isn't important. It is the letters."

(H.P. Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine, Vol II, p. 350)

Blavatasky's anagrams were used to disguise who her true god was.

Blavatasky openly taught Satan is mankind's true redeemer, creator and Saviour.

And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the 'Lord of Phosphorus' and Lucifer, or 'Light Bearer', is in us; it is our Mind - our tempter and Redeemer, our intelligent liberator and Saviour. . .

(HP Blavatasky, The Secret Doctrine p. 513)

Satan, the Serpent of Genesis is the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind.

For it is he . . . who opened the eyes of the automaton (Adam) created by Jehovah. . . he still remains in Esoteric Truth the ever loving messenger

(H.P. Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine, Vol 3, p. 243)

Gail Riplinger writes in her excellent book, New Age Versions on the use of anagrams in the occult world:

Lucifer's True Identity as Satan is Revealed as the Anagram, a Transposition of Letters, To Obscure It.

"Blinds," as esoterics call them, include scrambling the letters of a name to hide the true meaning of a word from the uninitiated.

(Gail Riplinger, New Age Versions, p. 52)

It is interesting Mrs. Riplinger also raises a red flag about the anagram Santa:

Gods of the New Age include Sanatan and Sanatsiyata, . . . New Agers say each name is 'concealed anagrammatically' 'and are aliases,' and are 'an anagram used for Occult purposes.

Is Santa, the great usurper of Christ's attention at Christmas, an anagram? "Ole Nick" is listed among the fallen angels or devils in the Dictionary of Fallen Angels.

Scholars concur that Christ was born in the fall on the 4th day of the feast of tabernacles.

December 25 is actually "the feast in honor of the birth of the son of the Babylonian queen of heaven, later called Saturnaha by the heathen Romans.

(Gail Riplinger, New Age Versions, p. 52)

It is also worth noting, Santa is Spanish for holy.

Santa is also from the Latin word sanctus which means also saintly, holy.

Our English words "saint, sanctify, et al" comes from santa.

Sounds like Satan's "I will be like the most High" plan is in action.

Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy.
Psalm 99:3

God’s name is called "holy" over 40 times in the King James Bible.

"Holy Claus". . .?

The name Santa Claus is also derived from the Dutch Sinter Klaas, which also was a form of Saint Nicholas.

What about Claus?

Is "Claus" another anagram for "Lucas"?

It's no secret Lucas and Lucis are new-age "code words" for Lucifer. The Alice Bailey founded new age, occult publishing company was originally named Lucifer Publishing Company but in 1924 the name was cleverly changed to Lucis Trust.

By the way, the Lucifer worshipping Lucis Trust is a major player in the works of the United Nations, formerly located in the United Nations building but now located on prime-time 1200 Wall Street.

Claus sounds a lot like "claws."

Maybe Santa Claus means "Satan's Claws"? Like a lion's "claws"?

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
1 Peter 5:8

Jolly Old St. Nick

While Santa and Claus may be disguising their real meaning - there is no disguising St. Nick.

He is a well-known character.

Old Nick:

A well-known British name of the Devil.

It seems probable that this name is derived from the Dutch Nikken, the devil...

(Encyclopedia of Occultism and Parapsychology, p.650)

Nick, the devil.

(Walter W. Sleay, Concise Dictionary of English Etymology, p. 304)


Besides the name Satan, he is also called Beelzebub, Lucifer . . . and in popular or rustic speech by many familiar terms as Old Nick . . .

(Oxford English Dictionary Vol III D-E)

Actor Adam Sandler and New Line Studios are obviously aware Nick is an alias for Satan.

Their movie Little Nicky is about the son of Satan named Little Nicky.

A teaser for the film says, "If your mother was an angel and your father was the devil you'd be messed up too."

In the popular Cloud Ten Pictures "Apocalypse" film series Revelation, Tribulation, & Judgment, the Antichrist just so happens to be played by none other than the actor "Nick" Mancuso. Hmmm…

The Cloud Ten Pictures are based on Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkin's popular Left Behind Apocalypse book series.

Oh, the name of the Antichrist in the Left Behind series? Nicolae "Nick" Carpathia, of course.

In fact, one of the books is titled, Nicolae, The Rise of the Antichrist.

It is also interesting, the book American Slang defines the slang word nick:

To rob or steal.

(Robert L. Chapman, American Slang, p. 297)

This is how the Lord Jesus characterizes the devil in John 10:

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way [say a chimney?], the same is a thief and a robber.

I am the door:

By me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:

I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

John 10:1,9,10

Father Christmas

The Christmas Poem reads:

Hurry up please Christmas Day,
When Father Christmas on his sleigh,
Comes to pay a visit.
Into every house he creeps
While each of us soundly sleeps
While he pays a visit.

The famous anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss writes in his popular analysis of "Father Christmas":

Father Christmas is dressed in scarlet: he is a king.

His white beard, his furs and his boots, the sleigh in which he travels evoke winter.

He is called "Father" and he is an old man, thus he incarnates the benevolent form of the authority of the ancients.

In other words, Father Christmas is God incarnate.

Levi-Strauss goes on to write that children believe in him, paying homage to him with letters and prayers.

The Devil's stated goal in Isaiah 14:13-14, is to be like God the Father.

And what better "I will be like the most High. . - name to fame" than "Father of Christ-mass".

And call no man your father upon the earth:

For one is your Father, which is in heaven.

Matthew 23:9

What about Kriss Kringle?

And there is the seemingly innocent, friendly, jingle-jangle name of Kriss Kringle.

By far, the name Kriss Kringle is the most blasphemous.

With Kriss, Satan slowly removes the mask.

There is no doubt about the intentions of "Kriss Kringle".

Believe it or not. . . Kriss Kringle is German for "little Christ Child".

Kriss Kringle A US name for Santa Claus derived from the German Christkind (little Christ child).

(Brewer's Dictionary of Twentieth-Century Phrase and Fable, p. 334)

Santa Claus or Kriss Kringle is the counterfeit "Christ Child"!

Is it possible that these subtle allusions to Satan and counterfeit attacks at the Lord Jesus Christ are just merely coincidences?

Keep reading. . . The evidence has just begun.

His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow. . . (Rev. 1:14)

His head and his hairs [his beard] were white like wool, as white as SNOW. . .

A perfect description of . . . Guess Who?

Who's got a beard that's long and white
Santa's got a beard that's long and white

Must be Santa Must be Santa
Must be Santa, Santa Clause

It is also . . . The Lord Jesus Christ in Revelation 1.

And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

His head and his hairs [BEARD] were white like wool, as white as snow;. . . Revelation 1:13-15

The poem The Night Before Christmas describes Old St. Nick as:

"He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

His eyes - how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;"

Daniel 7:9 describes the Lord Jesus, as the "Ancient of days" with white hair, "like the pure wool."

I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool:
Daniel 7:9

Remember Claude Levi-Strauss's popular essay of "Father Christmas":

Father Christmas is dressed in scarlet: he is a king. His white beard, his furs and his boots, the sleigh in which he travels evoke winter. He is called 'Father' and he is an old man, thus he incarnates the benevolent form of the authority of the ancients.

He is a Father. . . dressed in scarlet. . . He is a king. . . white beard. . . incarnate. . . authority of the ancients.

Who is Levi-Strauss really describing?
Who is this that cometh. . . red in thine apparel (Isaiah 63:2)

Who wears boots and a suit of red
Santa wears boots and a suit of red

Cap on head, suit that's red
Special night, beard that's white

Must be Santa Must be Santa
Must be Santa, Santa Clause

And must be. . . (Are you surprised?)

The Lord Jesus Christ?

Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.

Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat?
Isaiah 63:1-2

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. Revelation 19:11

Do you get the strangest feeling that someone is trying to "be like someone else"? (see Isaiah 14:14).
