I strongly recommend some preparatory reading if you really want to follow along and better understand this article: At a minimum, the Intro, Ch. 1, Ch.2, and Ch. 11 from my online "book", Wolves in Sheep's Clothing.
Below: Toby Mac-- a "rapper" formerly with DC Talk (now on his own), well-known in the Contemporary Christian Music world.
Notice the obvious Lion's Paw occult symbol pose with his right hand. Notice the (Masonic) black and white checkered shirt. Notice how one of his eyes is obscured in the shadows, thus creating the All-Seeing Eye presentation.
Masonic halls throughout the world manifest this black-and-white tiling. The British royal family, among the world's leading occultists, celebrated the recent wedding of Prince William at Westminster Abbey, a structure literally overloaded with satanic symbolism...including the black and white tiling (see below):
Not to mention...the satanic priest who presided over the wedding ceremony. Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Cantebury, is also a confirmed and practicing Druid. Orthodox Bible students would routinely equate Druidism to Satanism. Notice how his hands are conspicuously pointed downwards...a blatant indication of luciferian allegiance. This is known in the occult world as "praying to the Devil".
And notice below, the yoni-shaped hats worn by various guests at the wedding (except for the third photo). The hat designers have bent over backwards to incorporate occult symbols in these hat designs. The football-shaped yoni symbol is the female counterpart to phallic symbolism seen throughout elite satanic circles:
(Special thanks to the GalatiansFour blog for these insights into the royal wedding!)
Getting back to Toby Mac--look at some of his CD covers. The "one eye" presentations go on and on. I have used a couple of red highlighting circles:
In the context of these other occult indicators, I would dare surmise this one (below) looks very much like a pyramid (elongated though it may be)...and another "all-seeing eye" at the top of the pyramid. Conceptually similar, for example, to the pyramid/all-seeing-eye presentation on the US One Dollar bill.
Here is another photo, apparently taken during the same session as the one at the top. Notice he seems to be, again, carefully keeping his hand in this same position-- the Lion's Paw position. And once again, his one eye is obscured in the shadows...creating yet another 'one eye' presentation. Creepy stuff!
In this photo (apparently a wider angle of the photo at the top), notice the overall posture..as though he is saluting, almost in a soldier-like fashion. A 'soldier' in which army though?
Notice the grouping of "buildings" at the bottom of this cover. This is a pretty obvious "flipping the bird" phallic presentation. An indication of the kind of hatred a "wolf in sheep's clothing" secretly carries against his Christian fans? This kind of 'naughty' optical illusion has been done many times before. Not very original stuff. See the movie poster example further below.
Hollywood movie poster--"Visioneers":
Here is a DC Talk album cover with a very obvious "all-seeing eye" satanic symbol.
Notice also those emanating rays. You will see those all over the occult world. This may have originated with Aleister Crowley who depicted these rays in his symbolism designs. This depiction (below) appeared in Crowley's satanic book "The Book of Law" (1904). The "rays" supposedly represent the 'enlightenment' which emanates from Lucifer:
Below: Another example of occult "rays"--Meria Heller, a popular Internet psychic. Orthodox Bible students would, of course, prefer the term "witchcraft practitioner".
Another example: Crowley's satanic rays, right smack on the logo of a US government agency--the ultra-creepy Information Awareness Office--
More indication from Michael W. Smith? Can you spot the apparent evidence below? It took me a while but...there it is, right in the center of the photo: The Kabbalah bracelets on his wrist:
This is a poster advertising a recent mini-tour involving Michael Smith, Toby Mac, Third Day, and Max Lucado. Here again, we see these emanating rays.
I have begun to run across some indications of occultism in connection with Max Lucado. Some of his book cover designs deftly incorporate triangles and truncated pyramids (see below).
But it could very well be that he has no awareness of his book cover designs nor of the potential indications of occult allegiance with the people in the concert poster photo. He certainly has fallen hook-line-and-sinker for this new-fangled Contemplative Prayer nonsense (thinly veiled Eastern-style occultism), which is coming from the Emergent Church crowd. That does not bode well.
I have been baffled and saddened at the way in which so many Evangelical luminaries have somehow been sucked into this stuff--Chuck Swindoll, Bill Hybels, Phillip Yancey...on and on.
More occult indicators from Toby Mac: The photo below seems to depict some disturbingly ingenious stuff. Let me say this carefully: In the context of all these other occult symbols...this looks like a modifed "square and compass" Masonic symbol presentation.
Satanists and Masons (many times, these two are one and the same category) have created a huge variety of modified "square and compass" presentations. I provide examples all throughout my "Wolves" blog/book. We've already seen how Toby Mac has previously flashed Masonic indicators. This appears to be yet another.
If you look carefully at his very odd and conspicuous pose, his right arm appears to represent the "square"...and his left arm is positioned as a "compass". The classic Masonic square has a 90 degree angle, and the compass has a V shape, exactly as Toby Mac seems to be presenting it:
Below: A suspected "Square and Compass" presentation from Kenneth Copeland. You can read in the latter part of my Ch.13 regarding potential evidence of Copeland's occult allegiances.
Below: Again, IN CONTEXT...this appears to be an occult symbol presentation...by use of deliberately structured triangular facial hair. Recall Michael Smith's 'hair issues' in Ch.1 of "Wolves"!
And if all of that isn't enough, Toby Mac actually has a song about (in support of?) the Illuminati, entitled "Ill-M-I". What in the world?!--
Ill-M-I, Ill-M-I, Ill-M-I, Ill-M-I and you
Illuminati comin' thru
Ill-M-I, Ill-M-I, Ill-M-I, Ill-M-I and you
Illuminati comin' thru

As far as Third Day...they do have a very blatant occult symbol for their official logo (see below--red highlighted rectangle)...but until recently I had hoped they were merely like a number of other Christian bands who may only be inadvertently using occult symbolism because they think it "looks cool". Upon closer inspection though, I am no longer so optimistic about these guys.
Their logo (see above) combines a Sufi-style winged presentation with a moon god symbol (the intersecting crescents) at the center.
Here is a Third Day CD cover with just the moon symbolism, minus the Sufi wings:
These intersecting crescents can apparently also double as a "yoni" presentation. Occultists love double, triple, quadruple (etc.) meanings for their symbols. Recall the yoni-shaped hats worn by royal 'elites', earlier in this article.
And the aforementioned Sufi occultism comes out of the Muslim world. In the same way Kabbalism is a satanic counterpart to Judaism, Sufi occultism is the explicitly satanic alternative to Islam. Below: Typical Sufi wing symbolism--
On this Third Day cover art there is a depiction of the "infinity" occult symbol.
Yes, it has a legitmate role as a mathematics symbol. But this is also (and primarily) a well-established satanic indicator. Below, you see an example of the ancient occultic Alchemy symbol for brimstone. It incorporates both the Double Cross of Lorraine, as well as the Infinity symbol. Both are occult symbols in their own right.
Below--yet another occultic depiction of the infinity symbol--on a Tarot card referred to as "The Magician". And below that, the 2007 Christmas CD from Michael W. Smith which, as you see, incorporates the infinity symbol twice.
More "Third Day" occult symbolism:
There are any number of occult symbols on this CD cover. For now, I'll point out two of them. Firstly, you see in the lower red-highlighted circle...the symbol for "chaos"...with the eight outward-pointed arrows. This occult indicator is so obvious that Third Day fans were raising questions about it on the band's discussion board:
"Hi, I'm very concerned about the following. On their latest album, Third Day uses a occult symbol which stands for chaos (the circle with eight arrows coming from it). If you google for images on "symbol chaos", you will see the image they used. For those of you who read Dutch look the symbol up on www.verhoevenmarc.be/_symbolen.doc.
I do not understand why a 'Christian' band would use such a symbol. Especially since our God is a God of order and not of chaos. Third Day if one you guys reads this, please explain why you use the symbol." LINK
The other (oval-shaped) red-highlighting: I strongly suspect (given the context) this is the Masonic "A". Understanding this particular aspect may require 10-15 minutes of reading (if you haven't done so already) through my "Tim LaHaye" section of Ch.14. Go to that chapter and scroll down just a bit, until you see the "Tim LaHaye" heading. A little bit of the way through the LaHaye section, I get into this specific matter of the Masonic "A".
