In the desert they gave in to their craving;
in the wasteland they put God to the test.
So he gave them what they asked for,
but sent a leanness into their souls. .
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.
Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
Let me help you with your research all masculine gods or names associated to are of the same deity.

OP, your sigil there combines a number of independent symbols:
Inward spiral - destructive force which breaks down.
Outward spiral - creative force which builds up.
A cross signifying the cardinal directions, and planes of reality.
The Moon to represent the Divine Feminine: Water and Earth; wisdom and security.
The Sun to represent the Divine Masculine: Fire and Air; will and inspiration.
The Pentagram is obviously the four elements in tune with spirit.
The Triangle, in Occult circles, is a tool of summoning, a way to hold prisoner invoked forces.
The Ram's head is also, most likely, part of the sigil's effect. Meant to draw the viewer's attention, and help them focus on the symbolism and it's meaning. A balance really, is what I get. Whomever designed this glyph sees "Diablo" not as evil, sinful, or an aggressor; but as a magician, one who has balanced and conquered the ethereal forces of the Occultist and the Mystic. By chance, this glyph wasn't found among the pages of the Joy of Satan Ministries, was it? It reminds me a lot of what I've seen on their forums.

Belphegor (or Beelphegor) is a mythical demon that assists people in making discoveries that may enable power, riches, and/or fame. Belphegor has variously been depicted as a beautiful naked woman and as a bearded male demon with an open mouth, horns, and sharply pointed nails. Some Kabbalistic texts name him "the Disputer". He primarily created friction among men and spread evil through granting of wealth. According to some scholars of the 16th century, April is the month when Belphegor's powers are at their peak.
