Some of these secret society brotherhoods referred to God as the God of All Things, which was turned into the acronym GOAT. Hence, the symbolism of the goat faced demons Baphomet and Pan that have been commonly associated with the horned devil in Satanic rituals and occult seals used to evoke demonic powers. One of Albert Pike's influences was the French occultist, ceremonial magician and author Eliphas Levi who he quoted in his masonic handbook.
The Baphomet Deception was mainly carried out by the Luciferian Knights Templars in order to distort and twist the original Gnostic teachings from the Christos Essene Templars, the blue flame grail lines of the original 12 Essene Tribes. From the earliest Luciferian Templar sects, this signature was promoted over many generations to be adopted into Islam and to pervade the Satanic sects, in which it became the Church of Satan’s GOAT (god of all things) symbolism.
