PROPHETIC DISPENSATIONS

    PROGRAM OF GOD

CHURCH AGE (beginning)

"For in as many days as this world was made, in so many thousand years shall it be concluded. And for this reason the Scripture says: 'Thus the heaven and the earth were finished, and all their adornment. And God brought to a conclusion upon the sixth day the works that He had made; and God rested upon the seventh day from all His works.'  This is an account of the things formerly created, as also it is a prophecy of what is to come. For the day of the Lord is as a thousand years; and in six days created things were completed: it is evident, therefore, that they will come to an end at the sixth thousand year...

"Those nations however, who did not of themselves raise up their eyes unto heaven, nor returned thanks to their Maker, nor wished to behold the light of truth, but who were like blind mice concealed in the depths of ignorance, the word justly reckons 'as waste water from a sink, and as the turning-weight of a balance--in fact, as nothing;') so far useful and serviceable to the just, as stubble conduces towards the growth of the wheat, and its straw, by means of combustion, serves for working gold. And therefore, when in the end the Church shall be suddenly caught up from this, it is said, 'There shall be tribulation such as has not been since the beginning, neither shall be.' For this is the last contest of the righteous, in which, when they overcome they are crowned with incorruption...

"But when this Antichrist shall have devastated all things in this world, he will reign for three years and six months, and sit in the temple at Jerusalem; and then the Lord will come from heaven in the clouds, in the glory of the Father, sending this man and those who follow him into the lake of fire; but bringing in for the righteous the times of the kingdom, that is, the rest, the hallowed seventh day; and restoring to Abraham the promised inheritance, in which kingdom the Lord declared, that 'many coming from the east and from the west should sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.'" (Irenaeus) - 341

THE MILLENNIUM (beginning)

And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years... - Rev.20:1,2

Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. - Rev. 20:6

And He shall send Jesus Christ...whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things... - Acts 3:20-21

Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. - Dan. 7:22

    PROGRAM OF SATAN

 

         PRE-FLOOD ERA

"Wm. Robertson Smith...sums up about the Greeks and Egyptians when he writes: 'in their legends of the Golden Age it was told how in the earliest and happiest days of the race, when man was at peace with the gods and with nature, and the hard struggle of daily toil had not begun, animal food was unknown, and all man's wants were supplied by the spontaneous produce of the bounteous earth." - 376:132

"In alchemy the sun is associated with glittering gold ('the earth's sun, the king of metals')..." - 100:330

        OLD TESTAMENT PERIOD

"The ancient world civilisation of Atlantis gradually degenerated and perished in a series of cataclysms that destroyed large portions of their inhabited landmasses; but, throughout this period of disintegration of a once glorious civilisation, and afterwards, when the new races of humanity grew up in other portions of the globe, the sages held the dream and gradually prepared themselves and those who would listen to them for the restoral of a universal Golden Age of peace and concord.

"One of the earlier civilisations to arise from the ashes of Atlantis, although not on such a large scale, and which seriously attempted to create a Golden Age for itself, was that of Ancient Egypt. Guided by great sages and an enormous body of proven traditional knowledge concerning the laws of nature and divinity, pharaonic Egypt achieved a special level of civilisation and illumination that is a shining example to us today. From the Egyptian sages the Greek poets and philosophers learnt the best of their wisdom..." - 889:15

 

"What the Greeks called the Kronia, celebrating the fortunate era of Kronos, the Latins termed the Saturnalia, a symbolic renewal of the reign of...Saturn. Kronos is the Greek name of the same planet...

"The Latin poet Ovid knew the tradition [of Saturn, king of Italy] well: 'The first millennium was the age of gold...' But then, states Ovid, 'old Saturn fell to Death's dark country.' There is not a race on earth that forgot this cataclysmic event -- the death of Saturn, Universal Monarch; or the fall of Adam, the Heaven Man. And peoples the world over, for thousands of years, awaited the full return of Time's wheel, when Saturn's kingdom would appear again to rescue the world from a decadent age of Iron (the present age, marking the lowest of the descending ages after the Golden Age). The powerful memory of Saturn's Age gave rise to a prophesied return, as announced in the famous lines of Virgil: 'Now is come the last age of the Cumean prophecy: the great cycle of periods is born anew. Now returns the Maid, returns the reign of Saturn: Now from high heaven descends a new generation. And O holy goddess of childbirth Lucina, thou be gracious at the boy's birth in whom the Iron race shall begin to cease and the Golden to arise all over the world...'

"That Saturn governed the Golden Age is a supreme tenet of the ancient mysteries. This is why the most sacred day of the week, commemorating the primordial era, was dedicated to Saturn. The Hebrew Sabbath, the seventh day of the week, was the day of Saturn, as was the seventh day of the Babylonian and Phoenician weeks. For the Romans, the special day was Saturnai Dies, 'Saturn's Day'. This was the Anglo-Saxon 'Day of Seater' [Saturn], which...became our Saturday." - 93:30-32

"...a certain Chaldean astrological teaching according to which each of the planets reigned for the space of a thousand years, so that the antique world found itself under the domination of Zeus, who had just supplanted the first of the planets, Kronos...

"...In the last of the books of The Pistis-Sophia, and also in one of our Coptic Hermetic writings - No. 25...the heavenly bodies were distributed along seven aiones - one may say, seven cycles - in such as way that each of these had to reign, in its turn, for one millennium. This theory was sufficiently widely diffused to appear in a number of Greek and Latin authors; to be found also in Bardesanes and still more, among the Mandeans. And it is this system which explains [in]...the Hypostatus of the Archons and the treatise No. 40 - the theme of the replacement of Ialdabaoth-Kronos by Sabaoth-Zeus." - 230:260-1,271

 

        CHURCH AGE

"...Florentine Platonists saw a Golden Age dawning, a revival of pagan thought mainly wed to Christian values..." - 308:81

"[Peter] Dawkins asserts that the Golden Age, ruled over by Pan and Arcadia, is synonymous with Rosicrucian enlightenment, also thought to be 'Age of Aquarius.'" - 335

    "In 1776, four men were given the job to design a seal that expressed the meaning and destiny of the new nation: Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and Pierre Eugene DuSimitiere. The Great Seal is thus a record of the visionary origins of America.
    "On the reverse side is mandala containing a broken pyramid with a radiant eye enclosed in a triangle. The triangle points back to the evolutionary trinity of Joachim's philosophy of history. They pyramid points back to the Egyptian dawn of civilization. It is, however, an unfinished pyramid, as the work of civilization is unfinished. America's mission is to finish the pyramid, suggests [Robert] Hieronimos (in America's Secret Destiny). - 308:130

"...the three main channels through which the preparation for the new age is going on might be regarded as the Church, the Masonic Fraternity and the educational field..." (Alice Bailey) - 1

"The political aspirations of Freemasonry...can be traced back to the myth of the Golden Age and predynastic Egypt during the reign of Osiris and Isis and, before the flood, to the Babylonian and Hebrew myths of creation " - 25:16

"[Queen of Sweden] Christina's [Acadian] Academy supported as its symbol the 7-reeded pipe of Pan (God of the Golden Age). Members called themselves 'shepherds' and aimed to bring about a golden age and return to a simpler way of life." - 335

"A duty to maintain the unity of Druidic activity and an obligation...to...further the cultivation of the noblest and best in man and thus work for the restoration of the Golden Age." - 377

"In this future Golden Age idea, or the making of the 'kingdom of heaven on earth' (as it is sometimes called), one can see an incipient idea of the New Age Movement which arose in the twentieth century through the theosophist Alice B. Bailey... In fact, the entire concept of a future Golden Age or 'brotherhood of peace on earth' is a peculiarly Gnostic and occultic doctrine, rooting the eschatological fulfillment of history within the bounds of present earth history, before the cosmos has been renewed, transformed and purified into the New Heavens and the New Earth (Rev. 21:1-5). Cerenthus, one of the most infamous of the ancient Gnostics, actually devised an entire eschatological system which had Christ returning to earth and reigning with His people in Israel for a thousand years. Setting-up the kingdom of God on earth is actually a key Neo-Gnostic concept, which  has its wellspring in the Rosicrucian influences of the seventeenth century." (Alan Morrison, The Serpent & The Cross) - 503:82

"Although Satan still has enormous power amongst the nations of the world, the exercise of that power has been forced to operate within the confines of this Gospel Age. This is because something has been restraining the ability of Satan to 'deceive the nations' (Rev. 20:3) in the manner in which his unbridled lusts would have it--a matter which is hardly surprising in view of the fact that 'all authority in heaven and on earth' has been given to Jesus in the wake of the Cross (Mt. 28:18) after which Satan was cast out from his usurped rulership of the world (Jn. 12:31)...

"This condition will prevail until the approach of the close of the age, at which time Satan and his fellow demons will, in the providence of God, be released for a little while' from their restraint (Rev. 20:3,7-10), so as to galvanise the final manifestation of Antichrist (2Th.2:3-12; I Jn2:18). This evil horde will capitalise on the well-prepared, universal, religious movement (Rev.13:11ff.) and global political confederacy (Rev.13:1-8); 17:12-18), so that the previously-restrained 'mystery of lawlessness' can come to its fullness and ripeness for judgment (Rev.18;20:7-10). In other words, once the testimony of the Church has been completed and the full number of the elect has been saved, the 'rulers of the darkness of this age', under their leader Satan, will be unleashed from their restraint and permitted to achieve their ambition." (Ibid.) - 503:51-2

 

See: Diakrisis: Discernment or Deception?

"The vernal (spring) equinox, the point where the Sun passes from the south to north of the celestial equator moves very slowly from one of the 12 sections of the Zodiac to another. During the church age that point has been in the area of Pices. That point is now between Pices and Aquarius, giving rise to the New Age teaching that we are entering the Age of Aquarius... This New Age teaching is just a resurgence of the ancient Babylonian mysteries which will come to an end when Christ returns (See Babylon in the Future.) If there is any real meaning to the gradually changing position of the vernal equinox, it would be that the Age of the Church will give way to the even more glorious age of The Holy Spirit, The Millennium and New Beginnings." (Prophecy Central, Gospel in the Stars promo) - 850

        TRIBULATION / FIRST 3.5 YEARS

"It will be through the Grail in England that the energies of transformation and ascension will be channeled, which eventually will bring the Earth into the Seventh Golden Age." - 45:37

" . . the general reformation of the world announced in the Rosicrucian manifestos ... will bring the world back to the state in which Adam found it, which was also Saturn's golden age ... This return to the golden age of Adam and Saturn, is said to be assisted by the high society of the Rosicrucians." - 46:57

" ... Christianity...has set before us the final unity of human society...the membership of nations. The ideal is not of our own making; it is, as Mazzini said, beyond us and supreme over us." - 139:283-4, V.1 (B.F. Westcott, "The Glory of a Nation")

"Our whole culture is unquestioningly understood to be Judeo-Christian, but what would it mean if we are right and it should be, in fact, Egypto-Christian instead?" - 242:364

"Ushered in by monastics, the Age of the Spirit would bring the conversion of the Jews and Gentiles, union of the Greek and Roman churches, overthrow of Antichrist, and inauguration of the Sabbath of God." - 234:539

        GREAT TRIBULATION / GOLDEN AGE

The Gospel In The Stars

"This fascinating theory is that God used the clustering of stars that we call constellations as object lessons about His future plans for salvation and other prophetic subjects. This material is taken primarily from The Gospel In The Stars by Joseph A. Seiss - originally published in 1882. It also draws from E.W. Bullinger's The Witness of the Stars and a tape by Chuck Missler called 'The Mazzaroth'...

"Aquarius, the Waterman, is a man with a large vase of water which he is pouring out from the sky. This would be an apt portrayal the giving of the Holy Spirit whose influence Jesus likened to streams of living water (John 7:37-39)...

"If there is any real meaning to the gradually changing position of the vernal equinox, it would be that the Age of the Church will give way to the even more glorious age of The Holy Spirit, The Millennium and New Beginnings...

"This theory is endorsed today by such well known Bible teachers as Chuck Missler (Audio tape: 'The Mazzaroth') and Dr. James Kennedy of the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church (Message televised Jan. 7, 1996). It is also accepted by Dr. Henry M Morris in his book, The Long War Against God (pp. 265-269). Dr. Morris, president of the Institute for Creation Research.

"Note: This theory of a 'Gospel In The Stars,' is accepted by many prophecy scholars, but rejected by others." - 684

 

  "This [October] 1986 gathering [Vatican Interfaith Conference], consisting of leaders of the world's major religions and initiated by the pope himself, would represent a visible transition from traditional 'ecumenism' to the new 'interfaithism'...

    "Barbara Marx Hubbard viewed December 31, 1986, as a 'Planetary Pentecost', where the participants would have the powers of Christ to heal, resurrect the dead, and even transform their physical bodies as Christ transformed his." - 233:208,115

"All Eastern and Western traditions relate [Aquarius] to the symbolic flood which stands for the end of a formal universe..." - 48:15

"...hard but realistic facts, in Malthus' estimation, placed insurmountable difficulties in the way of the perfectibility of society. No possible reform could remove the pressure of natural laws, obstacles which prevent the 'existence of a society, all the members of which, should live in ease, happiness, and comparative leisure; and feel no anxiety about providing the means of subsistence for themselves and families'." - 56:246

        THE MILLENNIUM

And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations... - Rev. 20:7,8

PERSONAL APPLICATION

...because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. - Rev. 12:12

And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years... - Rev.20:1,2

PROPHETIC DISPENSATIONS

    PROGRAM OF GOD

CHURCH AGE

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. Rom. 8:19

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. - Rev. 3:7-10

And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.   And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. - Matt. 25:6-10

GREAT TRIBULATION (beginning)

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. - Rev. 20:4

GREAT TRIBULATION (end)

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints... 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. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. - Rev. 19:7-8,11-14

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. Col. 3:1-4

    PROGRAM OF SATAN

OLD TESTAMENT

And David commanded to gather together the strangers that were in the land of Israel; and he set masons to hew wrought stones to build the house of God. - I Chron. 22:2

        CHURCH AGE

"It remains for the student to follow every line of enquiry to the point of concentration for all threads are gathered and systematically manipulated for the eventual destruction of Christian civilization. It may lead to the B'nai B'rith, the Universal Israelite Alliance, India or Tibet, but in any case, a thorough and complete study of Rosicrucianism embracing a minute one of Rosicruciana in Anglia and the its various branches will be a great step...uncovering much of the political and moral chaos of present day history of humanity." - 143:510

"Our Philosophy also is not a new invention, but as Adam after the fall hath received it, and as Moses and Solomon used it." (Fama Fraternatis or a Discovery of the Fraternity of the Most Noble Order of the Rosy Cross) - 46:239

"The Arabs afterward gave the name of 'Solomon's seal' to the six-pointed star-like figure (see Magen, Dawid) engraved on the bottom of their drinking-cups. It is related in the 'Arabian Nights' (ch. xx.) that Sindbad, in his seventh voyage, presented Harun al-Rashid cup on which the 'table of Solomon' was represented; and Lane thinks that this was the figure of 'Solomon's seal'.... In Western legends, however, it is the pentacle, or 'druid's foot,' that represents the seal. This figure, called by Bishop Kennet the 'pentangle' of Solomon, was supposed to have the power of driving away demons. Mephistopheles says to Faust that he is prevented from entering the house by the druid's foot ('Drudenfuss'), or pentagram, which guards the threshold ('Faust'...)..." (Jewish Encyclopedia) - 259 ("Solomon, Seal of")

"The religion in which Druids functioned was proscribed and exterminated in the Roman provinces of Gaul and Britain during the 1st century A.D." - 378:719

"Very definitely may the assurance be given here that, prior to the coming of the Christ, adjustments will be made so that at the head of all great organizations will be found either a Master, or an initiate who has taken the third initiation. At the head of certain of the great occult groups, of the Freemasons of the world, and of the various great divisions of the church, and resident in many of the great nations will be found initiates or Masters." (Alice Bailey) - 164:61-2

        See: Character Education for Race Betterment: The Bohemian Grove*

"[Julius] Sperber was a Christian Initiate with a vision sufficiently clear to comprehend that if the about to be born Confederation, the Fraternitas, was to be a success and fulfill its mission, all Initiates of every school would need to work in harmony, one with the other." - 386:vii,viii,xxii

"...says Comenius...it is desirable that the 'agents of general happiness and welfare' should be many. They must be guided by some order 'so that each of them may know what he has to do, and for whom and when and with what assistance, and may set about his business in a manner which will make for the public benefit.' There should be a College, or a sacred society, devoted to the common welfare of mankind, and held together by some laws and rules.'" -  46:179

"...Karl Kellner...initiated the plan now happily complete of bringing all occult bodies again under one governance." - 143:573

"There are a great many secret societies in operation, [Charles] Nodier declares. But there is one, he adds, that takes precedence over all others, that in fact presides over all others. According to Nodier this 'supreme' secret society is called the Philadelphes. At the same time, however, he speaks of 'the oath which forbids me to make them known under their social name.' Nevertheless there is a hint of [the Prieuré de] Sion..." - 31:152

"The foundation of the Priory can be traced back allegedly to the gnostic adept Ormus who lived in the first century C.E.... He formed a secret society which united esoteric Christianity with the teachings of the pagan mystery schools. Ormus adopted as his symbol a cross surmounted by a rose to signify the synthesis of the new and old religions. ...Ormus, the legendary first century founder of the secret society which became the Priory of Sion lived in Alexandria." - 25:31, 142

"Ormus...[was] the name allegedly adopted by the Prieuré de Sion between 1188 and 1307.

"One is intended to see in Ormus the origins of the so-called Rose-Croix, or Rosicrucians. And in 1188 the Prieuré de Sion is said to have adopted a second subtitle in addition to Ormus. It is said to have called itself L'Ordre de la Rose-Croix Veritas..." - 31:185,123

"From the beginning the Prieuré de Sion has been committed to Hermetic magic (a type of black magic that originated with the ancient Egyptians and is portrayed in the Egyptian Book of Dead)." - 77:79

"Alexandrian Gnostics...were the spiritual heirs of the Essenes after Hadrian had suppressed the Order in 132 A.D." - 406:150

"According to Baron de Westerode, the founder of the Rosicrucians was one Ormesius, who had been converted by St. Mark, at Alexandria, in A.D. 46. He purified the Egyptian Rites, and reconciled them with Christianity, carrying his disciples with him, and founded the Society of ORMUS, or of the Light, each member wearing a red cross. To this society the Essenes and Therapeutae joined themselves, and conserved the Masonic Secrets." - 636 (Part 3)

"Therapeutae. (Gr.) or Therapeutes. A school of Esotericists, which was an inner group within Alexandrian Judaism... They were 'healers' in the sense that some 'Christian' and 'Mental' Scientists, members of the [Theosophical Society], are healers, while they are at the same time good Theosophists and students of the esoteric sciences. Philo Judeaus calls them 'servants of god'...'an esoteric circle of illuminati, of 'wise men'... They were contemplative Hellenistic Jews.'" (H.P. Blavatsky) - 316:329

“The Essenes, according to archaeologist Bargil Pixner, had a major 'camp' or 'quarter' on Mt. Sion (Pixner 1976:245-275). Moreover, Richard Mackowski held that the material evidence on Mt. Sion shows that it 'was not only the mahaneh of the Essenes during the time of Jesus, but also the birthplace of this extremely orthodox Jewish sect in Jerusalem' (Mackowski 1980:63 cf. 145).” - 1100

“One noteworthy fact that is known about the Essenians is that Gomorrah and Sodom were among the places where they had established colonies … [T]oo little attention has been paid to the fact that Qumran, according to an identification formerly suggested by F. de Saulcy, was Gomorrah. Moreover, according to the evidence of Synesius of Cyrene, Dion Chrysostome (who lived between A.D. 42 and 125) ‘has also, somewhere, praised the Essenians, who constitute quite a blessed city established near the Dead Sea in the middle region of Palestine close to Sodom’." - 230:299 

"The 'Prieuré documents' imply that...an abbey existed by 1100 and housed an order of the...name [Ordre de Sion] which may have been formed earlier... ...[A]t Orval, not far from Stenay, where Dagobert II had been assassinated some five hundred years earlier...an abbey was established to house the monks... By 1108 they had mysteriously disappeared... Orval, by 1131, had become one of the fiefs owned by Saint Bernard.

"Before their departure from Orval, however, the Calabrian monks may have left a crucial mark on Western history. According to Gerard de Sede, at least, they included the man subsequently known as Peter the Hermit. If this is so, it would be extremely significant, for Peter the Hermit is often believed to have been Godfroi de Bouillon's personal tutor... In 1095, along with Pope Urban II, Peter made himself known throughout Christendom by charismatically preaching the need for a crusade--a holy war that would reclaim Christ's sepulchre and the Holy Land from the Muslim infidel. Today, Peter the Hermit is regarded as one of the chief instigators of the 'Crusades.'

"...mysterious Abbey of Orval...[is] where our research suggested the Prieuré de Sion may have had its inception." - 31:113,170

"There was a secret order behind the Knights Templars, which created the Templars as its military and administrative arm. This order, which has functioned under a variety of names, is most frequently known as the Prieuré de Sion. ...Although the Knights Templar were destroyed and dissolved between 1307 and 1314, the Prieuré de Sion remained unscathed." - 31:106-7

"The French press, in a brief article on M. Plantard's election as Grand Master in 1981 had stated that 'the 121 high dignitaries of the Prieuré de Sion are all eminences grises of high finance and international political or philosophical organisations.' Something very similar could clearly be said about the Knights of Malta. By virtue of their intrinsic natures, both Orders could be expected to function in much the same sphere, the twilight underworld where politics, finance, religion and the work of various intelligence organizations converge." - 232:362

"During this crusading era, various knightly Orders merged, including the Ordre de Sion (Order of Sion) [aka Prieuré de Sion]  founded by Godefroi de Bouillon in 1099...

"From 1188, the Order of Sion had been restructured, and evolved to pursue a more specific course of loyalty to the Merovingian lineage of France.  The Templars, on the other hand, were especially concerned with supporting the emergent Stewart succession. In practice, the two operated in close association because they were essentially concerned with the same root bloodline." - 29:256,323

    "The moving speech given by Diana's brother, Charles, Earl Spencer, held back nothing in reminding the royal 'firm' that William and Harry were only half Mountbatten-Windsor, and that the Spencer family saw it as their duty to uphold and perpetuate the socially motivated upbringing begun by the princes' mother...  She will be remembered just as she had wished - as the people's own 'Queen of Hearts', and her romantic island repose will, no doubt, add to the mystique. Indeed, the nation has, in Diana, a truly compassionate 'Lady of the Lake' - a devoted and humanitarian Grail Queen.

    "Prince William will indeed succeed to the Crown of St Edward, but not simply because of he is his father's heir; he will succeed in the hearts and minds of the populace because he is his mother's son. Young Prince Harry, with his Spencer characteristics, will doubtless add to the popularity of a house which, in time to come, might well feel justified in dropping the Germanic Mountbatten-Windsor name for that of Spencer, thereby honoring the English people in memory of Diana Frances. It must be remembered that their father, Prince Charles, holds his present heirship in his own mother's line, not in the line of his father. Just as the people of Scotland look forward to a brighter future in the 21st century, so too are the people of England and Wales due for a new light to shine, and the House of Hanover-Saxe-Coburg-Windsor's light is fading fast." (Prince Michael Stewart) - 92:329

 

“Last year [1999] 140 000 people (limited to 2 500 visitors a day in July and August) called to pay tribute to Diana who is buried on an island in the middle of a lake on the [Spencer] estate. 'There is an old temple near the lake and this has become a focal point for people to leave their flowers and tributes,' said [Charles, Earl] Spencer.” - 730

 

“Lake Nemi is an ancient lake that is located east of Rome in the Alban Hills where the temple of Diana once stood, surrounded by her sacred grove.... A stream flowed into Lake Nemi from a sacred grotto nearby the temple. This stream was associated with the water nymph named Egeria. Both Egeria and Diana are early forms in the Lady of the Lake mythos.” - 731

 

"To the Priory of Sion (the secret, occult organization dedicated to preserving the Merovingian Bloodline), the Bear was an animal of the Goddess Diana...' ...the Merovingian kings, from their founder Merovee to Clovis...were 'pagan kings of the cult of Diana'." - 571

"The AntiChrist and a Cup of Tea uniquely offers HARD-EVIDENCE concerning the identity of the antichrist of Bible prophecy, who appears to be PRINCE CHARLES OF WALES.  Prince Charles, unlike all previous candidates, fulfills the following scriptural criteria: His name calculates to 666 in both English and Hebrew; the symbols in his heraldic achievement or coat of arms are identical to those of the 'first beast' of Revelation 13; he claims descent from David, Jesus, and Mohammed, but is most likely from the tribe of Dan and Odin (Satan); he literally serves the red dragon (Satan), which was central to his 1969 investiture as the Prince of Wales; he wants to be the King of Europe; he heads the United World Colleges; he steers the environmental ethics and business agendas of over 100 of the world's largest multinational corporations; he is credited for the success of the Rio Earth Summit and thus the Kyoto Protocol, and he has spearheaded the push for enforceable environmentalism worldwide; he initiated the Global Security Programme and its lecture series, for which Mikhail Gorbachev has become a spokesperson; he has partnered with the United Nations and the World Bank; he appears to be responsible for the initiation of the current Mideast 'peace process', and has been directly involved since Yitzhak Rabin's funeral; he has taken a traceable bio-chip implant; and his media exposure has exceeded that of every other man in history.  The book also details the British Monarchy's centuries-long conspiracy for a 'New World Order' using the Order of the Garter, which is the core leadership of the Priory of Sion, the Knights Templar, the Rosicrucians, English and French Freemasonry, and the Illuminati, as well as the overarching 'Committee of 300.'  This work is must reading for all who are interested in the modern fulfillment of Bible prophecy." - 728

"Even Britain's late Sir Iain Moncrieffe, her Majesty's Albany Herald of Arms, made a point in 1982 of stating with regard to Charles, the prevailing Prince of Wales, that 'Today, perhaps the most famous of HRH Romanian relations is Prince Vlad Dracula the Impaler, an ancestral uncle who took the surname of Dracula because his father Prince Vlad Dracul was proud to be a Knight of the Dragon.'" (Laurence Gardner) - 722:79

"Not all members of the Prieuré de Sion, [Jean Luc Chaumeil] said, were Jewish. This implication of this apparent non sequitor is obvious -- that some members of the order, if not indeed many, are Jewish." - 31:223

"The Prieuré de Sion - the Elders of Sion also relates to the Rothschilds who are reported to serve on a Jewish council of Elders of Sion... For instance, Armstrong, the Rothschild Trust, p. 196, 'That is the present objective of Jeroboam Rothschild and his secret Elders of Zion.'" - 77:152,163

“The British Round Table group served at the [Paris Peace] conference as advisers to Prime Minister David Lloyd George. [The real behind- the-scene experts at the Paris conference included M. (Georges) Mandel (real name Jeroboam Rothschild) (France), Phillip Sassoon (1888-1939) (England) and Bernard Baruch (U.S.).]" – 539

"Russell Barnes...wrote: 'Some years ago I was in contact with the author Sinclair Traill... He wore a sturdy gold ring...[with] an unusual motif which at first glance appeared to be a 'column'. He said the ring and its motif were associated historically with his Sinclair [St. Clair] forbearers, a name preserved by use as his Christian name." - 96:84

"According to the three Jewish authors of Dope Inc. the B'nai B'rith was a spinoff of the Order of Zion (Sion) and was organized as a covert 'intelligence front' for the House of Rothschild." - 77:153

"Through marriage the family of Marie Levis St. Claire was connected to the de Gisors, the family from which the first and third grand masters of the Prieuré de Sion came. Without question, Prieuré de Sion was created and run by individuals related to the St. Claires. The third grand master was in charge in the year that the Templars were ordered arrested and the treasure fleet set sail for Scotland to escape the agents of the French king. Did one St. Claire (from France) correspond with another Sinclair (from Scotland) for this express purpose?  Most likely the answer is yes." - 281:178

"Their domain [the Sinclair family--Scottish branch of the Norman Saint-Clair Gisors family] at Rosslyn was only a few miles from the former Scottish headquarters of the Knights Templar, and the chapel at Rosslyn--built between 1446 and 1486--has long been associated with both Freemasonry and the Rose-Croix. In a charter believed to date from 1601, moreover, the Sinclairs are recognized as 'hereditary' grand masters of Scottish Masonry.' This is the earliest specifically Masonic document on record. According to Masonic sources, however, the hereditary grand mastership was conferred on the Sinclairs by James II, who ruled between 1437 and 1460--the age of René d'Anjou." - 31:183

 

"In the Dossiers secrets the following individuals are listed as successive grand masters of the Prieuré de Sion--or, to use the official term, Nautonnier, an old French word that means 'navigator'...

"The name Saint-Clair is derived from the Latin Sanctus Clarus, meaning 'Holy Light'." - 29:297

"Clairvoyance. The faulty of seeing with the inner eye or spiritual sight... Real clairvoyance means the faculty of seeing through the densest matter (the latter disappearing at the will and before the spiritual eye of the Seer), and irrespective of time (past, present and future) or distance." - 316:85

TRIBULATION / FIRST 3.5 YEARS

And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;  I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. - Rev. 3:14-19

"Just as the people of Scotland look forward to a brighter future in the 21st century, so too are the people of England and Wales due for a new light to shine, and the House of Hanover-Saxe-Coburg-Windsor's light is fading fast." (Prince Michael Stewart) - 92:329

        GREAT TRIBULATION / GOLDEN AGE

"And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations. Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared unto me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt:" - Exod. 3:13-16

"Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all." - Dan. 11:37
 

"And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days;...and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it." - Dan. 8:37

"...Dr. Carl Jung believed, that these UFO sightings are a product of our unconscious veiling of an ancient human experience. Enough said. This 'bringing to earth' of the Sangraal by UFO's is the modern day equivalent of the Nephilim, the Outer Ones, or the Elohim earthing 'knowledge' and siring a new race of 'kingly' beings for this world. Kingly i.e., the Merovingians." - 571

 

See: The Second Coming of Christ 19.A

...and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. - II Thes. 2:3,4

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. - Is. 14:12-14

PROJECTION

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a BEAR, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. - Rev. 13:1-5

THOMAS PLANTARD DE SAINT-CLAIR

The Grand Master of the Priory of Sion from 1963 until 1984 and possibly 1988, was Pierre Plantard de Saint-Claire.  The (grand?)son of Pierre Plantard de Saint-Claire, Thomas, became the Grand Master in 1989 and is therefore considered the most likely candidate in the Merovingian lineage to ascend the throne of Jerusalem as world ruler. The prominence of the Sinclair family is evident in the Labyrinth of the Grail, a synopsis of which shows the Sinclair's historic and esoteric leadership of the Merovingian bloodline.  There is a high probability that the Antichrist will come from this bloodline. Alisdair Sinclair and William Cooper may have been eliminated as hereditary competitor of Thomas Plantard de Saint-Clair.

"From 1918 to 1963, Jean Cocteau was Grand Master [of the Prieuré de Sion]... Following the unification of various powers into a secret NWO government in 1954, the [Prieuré de Sion] had a major policy dispute. In 1963 with Cocteau's death, Gaylord Freeman, helped by Antonio Merzagora and Pierre Plantard de Saint-Claire, governed the P.d.S. In 1981 Pierre Plantard took over as Grand Master." - 77:81

"Like Robert Boyle, Charles Radclyffe and Charles de Lorraine, Maximilian [de Lorraine] appears to reflect a certain pattern in the list of Sion's alleged grand masters -- a pattern that in fact extends back to the Middle Ages.  Like Boyle, Radclyffe and his own uncle, Maximilian was a youngest son.  The list of alleged grand masters includes a number of younger or youngest sons -- many of whom appear in lieu of more famous elder brothers.

"Like Radclyffe and Charles de Lorraine, Maximilian kept a relatively low profile, working quietly behind the scenes and acting--assuming Sion's grand master acts at all--through intermediaries and mouthpieces." - 31:433-34

   "'Call it rather the wedding dowry of the sometimes holy and sometimes unholy alliance of Church and State that has for almost 2000 years been the backbone of European history. Behind the scenes, despite the rise of apparently independent nations, despite the so called freedoms ushered in by the French Revolution, the unity of the Holy Roman Empire has remained a significant centre of power.'
    "'Church and State. That seems to account for two groups'... 'Of course, only a select few on each side have been trusted with the secret, and not all of them have known the whole of it. On the Church side, as well as Saint Ambrose, one can mention Pope Clement IX, Saint Vincent de Paul, Saint John Bosco, Father Louis Fouquet, Saint Bernard and several others whose names are already in the literature.
    "'On the civil side we have such figures as the Merovingian kings, young Thomas Plantard de Saint-Clair, once he gets a bit older, Victor Hugo and the various Éminences grises detailed in the famous papers of the Priory of Sion.
    "These two groups have survived together in one way or another since the Beginning and, despite the occasional assassination, conspiracy or even war that one of them has found it necessary to get involved in from time to time down the centuries, in order to keep things in the family, as it were, and also to prevent treasures needed for purposes of ritual magic and alchemy being diverted to ephemeral, temporising and merely pragmatic ends, it is, I think, pretty safe to claim that, on the whole, the alliance has worked remarkably well." - 413

For he shall grow up before him as a tender PLANT, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. Is. 53:2

"And I will raise up for them a PLANT of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more." Ezekiel 34:29 

And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD: - Zech. 6:12

Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous BRANCH, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. - Jer. 23:5,6

In that day shall the BRANCH of the LORD be beautiful and glorious... - Is. 4:2

But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable BRANCH... - Is. 14:19

"The Christmas tree now so common among us, was equally common in Pagan Rome and Pagan Egypt. In Egypt that tree was the palm tree; in Rome it was the fir; the palm-tree denoting the Pagan Messiah, as Baal-Tamar, the fir referring to him as Baal-Berith. The mother of Adonis, the Sun-God and great mediatorial divinity, was mystically said to have been changed into a tree, and when in that state to have brought forth her divine son. If the mother was a tree, the son must have been recognised as the 'Man the branch.' And this entirely accounts for the putting of the Yule Log into the fire on Christmas-eve, and the appearance of the Christmas-tree the next morning. As Zero-Ashta, 'The seed of the woman,' which name also signified Ignigena, or 'born of the fire,' he has to enter into the fire on 'Mother-night,' that he may be born the next day out of it, as the 'Branch of God,' or the Tree that brings all divine gifts to men." - 156:97

 

"Pergamenian coins illustrate the importance which the community attached to this cult [of Asklepios]. Caracalla is shown on one coin, saluting a serpent twined around a bending sapling." - 621:636-37

"Through the tender mercy of our God, With which the Dayspring from on high has visited us; To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace." - Luke 1:78-79 (NKJV)

"Dayspring is a reference to the coming of Messiah (see Num. 24:17; Mal. 4:2). This Greek word was also used to translate the Hebrew word for 'branch' or 'sprout,' a concept with messianic overtones. (See Is. 11:1-10; Jer. 23:5; 33:15; Zech. 3:8; and 6:12). To give light...to guide our feet: as the Dayspring or the 'Rising Sun,' the Messiah will provide the light of truth and forgiveness to those blinded by the darkness of their sins." (NKJV ff.) - 1121:1689

"And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:" - Zech. 6:12 (KJV)

"...The man who would lead [the Qumranians] at the 'End of the Age', the Davidic Messiah, had such titles as 'Mighty Man', 'Man of Glory', 'Prince of Light'... God, however, will save his people by the hands of two messianic figures who arise at the end of time; one from 'Branch of David', and the other 'The Interpreter of the Law'." - 162:201

The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?... Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. - Psalm 24:8-10

"Only two direct lines of Merovingians remain. Their family names are Plantard and Saint-Clair. Both families live in hiding, probably protected by the Priory." (The Da Vinci Code) - 935:260

"At the end of this century the Order of the Knights Templar will re-emerge to change the whole existing social order. This will take place in the period immediately following the coming world catastrophies, which will commence in 1982 and continue in three terrible waves of destruction up to the year 2001 on an apocalyptic scale. During the struggle to rebuild the civilized world, the anti-Christ and the great dictator will attempt to seize world power. Their adversaries will be the reborn Templars and souls they shall choose to join them in rebuilding a new world order in which the freedom of the individual spirit will find its true place. Throughout this period, that mighty spirit behind the figure of Parzival will be their heroic and beloved leader." - 126:143-144

"...Dagobert II climbed on the throne but he was assassinated in 679 as well as his son Sigebert IV according to the official history...

"The Merovingian dynasty continued formally with Thierry IV and Childéric III who was removed in 751 and this was the end of the dynasty. According to the parchment found by Saunière, and this could be true according to some historians, Sigebert IV escaped and arrived in the Razes on the 17 of January 681 where he took refuge with his grand father.  Dagobert II had as a second wife Gisèle, the daughter of Béra II the count of Razès. The Merovingian line included, after Sigebert IV (676-758) also known as the 'Plant-Ard' - from whom Mr Plantard took his name!-: Sigebert V (695-768), Bera III (715-771), Guillemon, Bera IV (755-836), Bera V (794-860), Hildéric I and finally Sigebert VI known as 'Ursus'. From this lineage came the Blanchefort family who gave three centuries later a Templar Grand Master, Bertrand de Blanchefort... According to the parchment found by Saunière the lineage did not stop with Sigebert VI but continued up to this date although nobody claimed the French throne." - 856

"...Janus was really the oak-god Dianus who was incarnate in the King of Rome..." - 406:69

 

"Janus is one of the most important Roman gods. His two faces illustrate not only his role as deity of beginnings, looking to past and future, but his essential duality as the original bisexual chaos and the form which emerged from it. Diana/Jana and Saturn are especially associated with him. He may have been Gallicized into Jean (John), one of the companions to the Black Virgin." - 272:7

"And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying,This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you... And it came to pass the selfsame day, that the LORD did bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies... And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand. But the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baalzephon. And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the LORD... 26 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea." (Exodus 12:1-2-14:8-10, 26-27)

"In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD's passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread. In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD seven days: in the seventh day is an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest: And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it. And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf an he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto the LORD.3 And the meat offering thereof shall be two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto the LORD for a sweet savor: and the drink offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of an hin." (Lev. 23:5-14)

"From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day." (Matt. 16:21)
 

"Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end." (John 13:1)
 

"But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming." (I Cor. 15:20-23).

"Despite the carefully listed genealogies of his time, the heritage of Meroveus was strangely obscured in the monastic annals. Although the rightful son of Clodion, he was nonetheless said by the historian Priscus to have been sired by an arcane sea creature, the Bistea Neptunis...

"The Sicambrian Franks, from whose female line the Merovingians emerged were associated with Grecian Arcadia before migrating to the Rhineland. As we have seen, they called themselves the Newmage -- 'People of the New Covenant', just as the Essenes of Qumran had once been known. It was the Arcadian legacy that was responsible for the mysterious sea beast -- the Bistea Neptunis -- as symbolically defined in the Merovingian ancestry. The relevant sea-lord was King Pallas, a god of old Arcadia... The immortal sea-lord was said to be 'ever-incarnate in a dynasty of ancient kings' whose symbol was a fish - as was the traditional symbol of Jesus." - 29:166,175

 

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? - Rev. 13:1-4

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. - Gen. 6:1-4
 

"The Nephilim were banished to the center of the earth for disobeying God by mating with the daughters of men and teaching them the 'forbidden' arts. In this publication the Nephilim have been identified as the Fathers of the Merovingians...

"...the Merovingian race was sired by a water beast known as the Quinotaur. This Quinotaur took the form of a sea-bull. Crowley's personal seal was of a sea goat. Grant, writing of Crowley's Seal of the Beast, says: 'The beast is the sea-goat or amphibious monster identical with Cthulhu, the Quinotaure or Bull of the Deep.' [Kenneth] Grant writes as a footnote; 'The waters under the earth; home of the 'ancestors' or subconscious atavisms of the race.' Is this a reference to the race of the Grail?.

"Grant, writing of the cross of the four corners says; 'The intersection of this surface (horizontal and vertical) represent, therefore, the gateway to another dimension, the waters beneath the earth that mirror in their uncertain depths the heights of space above the earth wherein glow the stars, the unborn or un-fleshed souls of future states of consciousness, or simply life beyond earth. The mortal world spreads east and west and the land of le invisibles lies above and below it in the vertical dimensions of height and depths, north and south, Horus and Set.' This ties in with the Book of Enoch and the Hosts above and the fallen, banished Nephilim below. This also reminds us of the twins or brother gods in Sumeria called Enki and Enlil. Enki, the infernal of the two, represents Set and Enlil represents Horus (although in this context Enlil would also be Osiris.) In ancient mythologies names and stories can be switched and one god can also be an attribute of another. It's best to keep this in mind when studying this type of material. Set kills Osiris as Enki kills Enlil. As it has been shown in another article of this publication, Enki is associated with Cain, and Cain was a very bad boy. Enki was an infernal god that has been identified, in this publication, as siring the Merovingian race.

"...Enki has been associated with Set (in Tracy Twyman's article The Merovingian Mythos: Its Symbolic Significance, and it's Roots in the Ancient Kingdom of Atlantis) who is also Satan...

"...Writing of the Great Old Ones or Elder Gods from Lovecraftian lore, Grant says, 'The letter M, the key vibration of the plane of the Elder Gods, is represented mythologically as the sea-goat, Makaru or as the crocodile, the beast of the waters.' Couldn't Makaru be a form of Merovee who spawned the Merovingians, and was sired himself from a sea-bull?  Tracy Twyman has already written of the connections between Lovecraft's Necronomicon Mythos and the Merovingians in her article Dead But Dreaming: The Great Old Ones of Lovecraftian Legend Reinterpreted as Sumerian/Atlantean Kings..." - 571

 

"...Anyone having read The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail would know that the Templars were Knights pledged to defend the Merovingian/Grail Bloodline... The Merovingian blood is the blood of kings, the kings or gods from ancient Sumeria and beyond." - 571

"The [Roman] Church had a hand in the assassination of Dagobert II, and Childeric III was deposed by Pepin III, the first of the Carolingian dynasty. The removal of the Merovingians was culminated with the coronation of Charles the Great, Carolus Magnus, or Charlemagne, who in 800 became the Holy Roman Emperor, thus betraying the pact made with the Merovingian bloodline, ending their dynasty. But the bloodline continued in the personage of Sigisbert IV (son of Dagobert II), who fled southward, taking on the surname 'Plant-Ard' (eventually 'Plantard'), and the title of the Count of Razes." - 414

"January 17th AD 681 was the date Sigisbert IV was reputed to have arrived at Rennes-le-Chateau. He is the mysterious link in the Merovingian line who, as son of Dagobert II, would have been his heir. As his life was in danger he was apparently concealed and from him came a line of kings who have never ruled." - 412

"...Although it has been believed that Sigisbert IV was murdered along with his father, it is stated in the Prieuré documents that he was in fact taken to safety by his sister, south to the land of his mother, the Visigoth princess. He is said to have later adopted the title Duke of Razes and Count of Rhedae, Rhedae being the old name for Renne-le-Chateau. It appears that he also adopted the surname or nickname: Plant-Ard, which later became Plantard, his descendants going under this name." - 258:31-32

 

"According to the 'Prieuré documents' the lords of Anjou-Plantagenet family were thus allied to the Merovingian bloodline. And the name of Plantagenet may even have been intended to echo 'Plant-ard' or Plantard.'" - 31:302

 

"A veritable secret society of 121 dignitaries, the Prieuré de Sion, founded by Godfroi de Bouillon in Jerusalem in 1099, has numbered among its Grand Masters Leonardo da Vinci, Victor Hugo and Jean Cocteau. This Order convened its Convent at Blois on 17 January 1981... As a result of this recent Convent at Blois, Pierre Plantard de Saint-Claire was elected grand master of the Order... This choice of grand master marks a decisive step in the evolution of the Order's conception and spirit in relation to the world; for the 121 dignitaries of the Prieuré de Sion are all éminences grises of high finance and of international political or philosophical societies; and Pierre Plantard is the direct descendant, through Dagobert II, of the Merovingian kings. His descent has been proved legally by the parchments of Queen Blanche of Castile, discovered by the Abbe Sauniére in the church at Rennes-le-Château (Aude) in 1891. These documents were sold by the priest's niece in 1965 to Captain Roland Stanmore and Sir Thomas Frazer, and were deposited in a safe-deposit box of Lloyds Bank Europe Limited of London." - 31:214-15

 

"Only two direct lines of Merovingians remain. Their family names are Plantard and Saint-Clair. Both families live in hiding, probably protected by the Priory." (The Da Vinci Code) - 935:260

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a BEAR, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. - Rev. 13:1-2

 

In his book Outer Gateways Kenneth Grant writes:

 In The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail, the authors reproduce the family crest of Clan Plantard, the contemporary representative of which was, until recently, the Grand Master of the Prieuré de Sion, an Order which, according to [Henry] Lincoln, dominated the Order of the Knights Templar and various other highly influential institutions which, at certain periods of history, included the Vatican. The crest which supplies the key to the [Typhonian/ Draconian] Current represented by the Merovingian bloodline and the Order of Sion, comprises the symbols of the Typhonian line of descent: the two bears, eleven bees, and the fleur de lys. The motto incorporated in the crest reads 'et in Arcadia ego.' Arcadia=127, which is the number of the Egyptian Goddess Heqt who was typified by the 'lower part of the back, or haunch.'  

 The two bears denote the Mother (Typhon) and her son (Set) [Satan]. The image of the bee pictorializes the buzzing or humming vibration peculiar to the Outer Ones, or their vehicles. Eleven is the number of Those who are Without, or beyond, the Tree of Life, thus identifying the Outer Ones.' The Outer Ones are also the Qliphoth or the Ancient Ones of Lovecraftian lore. That the Typhonian Tradition and the Merovingian Tradition share the same important symbols seems to be much more then a mere coincidence. - 571

"Arcadia was one of the primary mystery names given to the state of the world in a Golden Age, and the whole Arcadian imagery and allegory is that of a Utopia or Paradise on earth that might be achieved. The world is on the threshold of that achievement now, according to the way the evolutionary cycles of divine law work. Jesus Christ and the Buddha prepared us for it in an outstanding way; Francis Bacon...and the Rosicrucian Brotherhood have inaugurated it. All have used Arcadian imagery, the meaning of which pierces deep, right to the heart of all mysteries." - 889:15

"Arcadia...is frequently denoted by a fountain or a tombstone, both of which are associated with an underground stream. This stream is usually equated with the river Alpheus--the central river in the actual geographical Arcadia in Greece, which flows underground and is said to surface again at the Fountain of Arethusa in Sicily. From the remotest antiquity to Coleridge's 'Kubla Khan' the river Alpheus has been deemed sacred. Its very name derives from the same root as the Greek word alpha, meaning 'first' or 'source.'...

"...the underground stream...might connote an unacknowledged and thus 'subterranean' bloodline...

"...the Plantard family--lineal descendants of Dagobert II and the Merovingian dynasty. In 1548, the 'Prieuré documents' state, Jean des Plantard had married Marie de Saint-Clair--thus forging another link between his family and that of the Saint-Clair/Gisors...

"...the specific phrase in Poussin's painting---'Et in Arcadia Ego'...appeared in an earlier painting by Poussin, in which the tomb is surmounted by a skull and does not constitute an edifice of its own, but is embedded in the side of a cliff. In the foreground of this painting a bearded water deity reposes in an attitude of brooding moroseness---the river god Alpheus, lord of the underground stream..." - 31:139-140;177,180-2

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree:
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
   Down to a sunless sea...

 

So twice five miles of fertile ground
With walls and towers were girdled round:
And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,
Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;
And here were forests ancient as the hills,
Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.

But oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted
Down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover!
A savage place! as holy and enchanted
As e'er beneath a waning moon was haunted
By woman wailing for her demon-lover!

And from this chasm, with ceaseless turmoil seething,
As if this earth in fast thick pants were breathing,
A mighty fountain momently was forced:
Amid whose swift half-intermitted burst
Huge fragments vaulted like rebounding hail,
Or chaffy grain beneath the thresher's flail:
And 'mid these dancing rocks at once and ever
It flung up momently the sacred river... - 781

    "In ancient Egyptian texts...The Tree of Life grew out of the Sacred Mound, it's branches reaching out and supporting the star and planet studded sky, while it's roots reached down into the watery abyss of the Netherworld. The trunk of the Tree of Life represented the World Pillar or Axis Munde (literally 'Axis of the Mound') around which the heavens appeared to revolve. The World Pillar was the centre of the universe.
    "The Ancient Egyptian symbol for 'plant' meaning 'Tree of Life' was three sacred lotus lilies. They have tree stems curving to the left as though blown into Life by the breath of Hu, the Celestial Sphinx. On top of each stem is the Lotus flower which was used in Ancient Egypt to represent Life and Resurrection. It is from this hieroglyph that the 'fleur de lis' which is frequently found in Ancient Egyptian Art traces its origin. The fleur de lis' represents the Tree of Life. The glyph which denotes the sacred knowledge associated with Hu is also formed by the three stems of the three sacred lotus lilies...

    "In Ancient Egypt the Netherworld was called the 'Netterworld' meaning the 'World of the gods'. The gods had their home among the stars." - 903:6 

"In the Typhonian Tradition the Bear is the constellation of Ursa Major. The stars must be aligned in a specific way in order for Set [Satan] to be properly invoked. To the Priory of Sion (the secret, occult organization dedicated to preserving the Merovingian Bloodline), the Bear was an animal of the Goddess Diana. According to Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince, the authors of The Templar Revelation, ' ...the Merovingian kings, from their founder Merovee to Clovis (who converted to Christianity in 496) were 'pagan kings of the cult of Diana'.'  Picknet and Prince got this information from the Dossiers Secrets of the Priory of Sion. The bees, which are a recurring symbol of the Merovingians are, in the Typhonian Tradition, represented frequently as the humming or buzzing sound that occurs before the appearance of the Great Old Ones or 'beings' proper to this tradition. Grant writes 'The bee, beetle, or crab, is therefore the link between the earliest manifestation of the Typhonion current and its final phases.' Also; '217 is the key number of [Crowley's] Book of the Law. 217 is also the number of DBVRH, meaning 'a bee' which is the specific symbol of Sekhet, whose name means 'a bee.' Sekhet is another aspect of the god Set. There are eleven bees because eleven is the number of Magick and of the sephirah on the Tree of Life, called Daath, which is the 'Gateway' to the backside of the Tree and to the Gods... As for the fleur de lys, in the Typhonian Tradition it represents the 'kingly man' that Crowley extols and the inheritor of the Grail Bloodline. In The Vision and the Voice, Crowley is 'conversing' with his Holy Guardian Angel Aiwas, who says: 'For I am not appointed to guard thee, but we are of the blood royal, the guardians of the Treasure-house of Wisdom.' The 'blood royal,' the Sangraal of the Holy Grail." - 571

"...the daimon Typhon...was equated with the Egyptian god Set." -  867 

 

"Typhon is...Plutarch asserts, the distinct 'Evil Principle' or the Satan of the Jews." - 316 

 

"TYPHOEUS was a monstrous immortal giant who was defeated and imprisoned beneath Mount Aitna by Zeus. This volcano-daimon hurled red-hot rocks at the sky and from his mouth boiled forth great storms of fire... Aitna (Mt Etna), where the rock is alight and kettles of fire boil up the hot flare of Typhaon’s bed." –Dionysiaca 13.319 - 867 

"Associated in esoteric knowledge with th[e] role of high kingship is the symbol of the North Pole Star - the 'crown of the world - and the circumpolar constellations. Of these, the Lesser and the Greater Bear are the most important: the former providing the present North Pole Star. The 'Bear' is a veil to the real name, which means 'Dove', or 'Sheepfold', or 'Chariot'. As the Chariot, it is Arthur's vehicle of manifestation, as also the fiery chariot on which Elijah ascended to heaven. Hence Arthur is known as  'the Bear'. As the Sheepfold, it is the heavenly place of peace and enlightenment that Jesus spoke of, to which the 'sheep' (i.e. initiates) of mankind are led, and from which the 'shepherds' (i.e. the adepts and masters) come from. As the Dove, it is known as the vehicle of the Holy Spirit, by means of which that Spirit descends to the earth and governs its kingdom. It is signified by the royal crown of a High King (i.e. a crown with arches) - a halo of light which descends upon a truly worthy and anointed (i.e. illuminated) soul, bestowing full knowledge of Truth. The Great Bear is known as the mother of the Little Bear, which is her son. The Rampant Bear and Ragged Staff emblem...depicts just this - the Bear constellation tied to the Pole of the earth's axis, and dancing around it." - 889:80

    "[Rosicrucian] emblems depict Jehovah as an eagle with protective wings outstretched: cryptically alluding to St. John (whose symbol is an eagle), whose name is derived from the same sacred vowels - I.O.A. - as JIHOVAH.

    "I.O.A., as in Iona, also means 'Dove' - the Holy Ghost that brings divine Light into the world of material manifestation. Furthermore, as the symbol of the Dove is derived from the Hebraic word Dôveh, meaning rest, strength, security, plenteousness, peace' (which is the description of I.O.A.), and as this word is directly associated with Dohver, a 'sheepfold', and with Dôhv, a 'bear', I.O.A. is represented by all these symbols - eagle, dove, sheepfold, bear. Ursa Major and Ursa Minor are the celestial signs, or symbols, of I.O.A.; thus the eagle in the emblems, or Jehovah in the motto, can be translated as the Great or Little Bear, referring again to Arcadia and the Arcadians, to the Ancient British race..." - 889:122

    "The sign of Taurus is taken as representing the initiating impulse that starts the process of illumination. Taurus the Bull is the great Bestower of Light, who fertilises the minds of mankind with seeds of light...

    "It should be noticed...that the so-called 'Unification of the Two Lands' in Ancient Egypt, which marked the start of the first cycle of pharoanic dynasties, began with the commencement of the astronomical Age of Taurus, c. 3,240 BC... The symbol of the bull was of particular importance for Egypt throughout its history...

    "...At the time that the pharaonic civilisation of Ancient Egypt was supposed to have begun, c. 3.240 BC, the Spring Equinoctial sun arose in the middle of the zodiacal sign of Taurus, and the May Day festival sun was on the cusp of the signs of Cancer and Gemini...

    "The first and main cycle of the Egyptian pharaonic civilisation...spanned...more than just the Taurean Age. These astronomical ages were recognised by the Egyptians, and their civilisation adapted accordingly, but the cycle of their civilisation was not governed primarily by such ages. There was something even more significant in the heavens which governed that particular cycle of the Egyptian civilisation - the association of two great constellations that have special significance to each other, one near the north pole and the other in the zodiac. These two constellations, which determined the whole length and course of the first cycle of Egyptian pharaonic civilisation, were Ursa Major, the Great Bear, and Leo, the Lion. ...Leo is also a symbol of the heart, and Ursa Major was considered by the Egyptians to be the magical 'thigh' (or right foreleg) of Taurus, the latter symbolising the illumined mind and referred to as the 'Eye' of Horus. With this 'thigh of the Eye of Horus' Ptah (the Creator god signifying the Voice of God) 'opened' the mouths of divine entities and the souls of the dead." - 889:27

 

And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. - Rev. 13:2

"The Sicambrians, ancestors of the Franks, were known as the 'people of the Bear' for their worship of the bear-goddess Arduina. The word 'Arcadia' comes from Arkas, patron god of that area of Greece, the son of the nymph Callisto, sister of the huntress Artemis. Callisto's constellation is also known to many as Ursa Major, the Great Bear.

"The name 'Arthur' comes from the Celtic arth, related to 'Ursus' -- namely, 'bear.' In legend, the Merovingians were said to be descended from the Trojans, and Homer reports that Troy was founded by a colony of Arcadians.

"The 'Prieure documents' claim that the Arcadians were descended from Benjamites driven out of Palestine by their fellow Israelites for idolatry. 'Arcadia' was also known as the source of the River Alphaeus, the 'underground stream' which figures so prominently in Coleridge's poetry and in esoteric literature.

"The Merovingians were 'sacred kings' who reigned but did not rule, leaving the secular governing function to chancellors known as the Mayors of the Palace. It was one of these Mayors, Pepin the Fat, who founded the dynasty that came to supplant them -- the Carolingians.

"One of the great Merovingian kings, Clovis, struck a deal with the newly nascent Roman church. He would subdue their enemies, the Arian Visigoths and the pagan Lombards, in return for baptism into the faith and recognition of his right to rule a new Roman empire as 'Novus Constantinus.'

"Yet one of his descendants, Dagobert II, was murdered by a lance pierced through his eye (or poison poured in the ear -- accounts vary) at the orders of Pepin. The church endorsed the assassination, flatly betrayed its pact with Clovis, and in turn recognized the family of usurpers as legitimate, culminating with the crowning of Charlemagne as Holy Roman Emperor. It was thought that the Merovingian lineage was extinguished; in any case it was excised from the history books.

"But there is some evidence that Dagobert's son, Siegebert IV, survived and that a Merovingian principality continued to be ruled in Septimania by Guillem de Gellone, a descendant -- and ancestor -- of Godfroi de Bouillon.

"If the Prieure documents are to be believed, the Merovingian lineage persists to this day, largely due to efforts to preserve it through intermarriage.

"The significance of such alliances is the key." - 491

"...the marriage of Dagobert II and Giselle of Razes combined the two bloodlines, that of the Holy Family and that of a pagan divine beast, the Quinotaur. The connection between the Merovingians and the Holy Family seems to have been hind-shadowed by this union of the bloodlines, when indeed they would seem from contemporary sources to be a kind of Pendragon lineage, such as Vortigern and Arthur in Britain. In Sigisbert IV, it appears the bloodlines of the divine king and the world teacher combined.

"Given the events of his childhood, it is natural that Sigsbert, the new Count of Rhedae, kept a low profile. The only solid evidence of his existence is a charter for a monastery signed in 718 by 'Sigebert, Comte de Rhedae, and his wife Magdala'." - 873 (Book 1, Chap. 9)

See: Goddess Worship: 21.H

"...Dagobert II climbed on the throne but he was assassinated in 679 as well as his son Sigebert IV according to the official history...

"The Merovingian dynasty continued formally with Thierry IV and Childéric III who was removed in 751 and this was the end of the dynasty. According to the parchment found by Saunière, and this could be true according to some historians, Sigebert IV escaped and arrived in the Razes on the 17 of January 681 where he took refuge with his grand father.  Dagobert II had as a second wife Gisèle, the daughter of Béra II the count of Razès. The Merovingian line included, after Sigebert IV (676-758) also known as the 'Plant-Ard' - from whom Mr Plantard took his name!-: Sigebert V (695-768), Bera III (715-771), Guillemon, Bera IV (755-836), Bera V (794-860), Hildéric I and finally Sigebert VI known as 'Ursus'. From this lineage came the Blanchefort family who gave three centuries later a Templar Grand Master, Bertrand de Blanchefort... According to the parchment found by Saunière the lineage did not stop with Sigebert VI but continued up to this date although nobody claimed the French throne." - 856

And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations; That these made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, and Shemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar...
    And there went out the king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar;) and they joined battle with them in the vale of Siddim;...

And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to the mountain. And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and went their way. And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.
    And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram. And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan. And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus. And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people...
    And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself. And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth, That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich: - Genesis 14

"The 'Prieuré documents' imply that...an abbey existed by 1100 and housed an order of the...name [Ordre de Sion] which may have been formed earlier...

"It is known that in 1070, twenty-nine years before the First Crusade, a specific band of monks from Calabria in southern Italy arrived in the vicinity of the Ardennes Forrest, part of Godfroi de Bouillon's domains. According to Gérard de Sède this band of monks was led by an individual called Ursus--a name the 'Prieuré documents' consistently associate with the Merovingian bloodline... [A]t Orval, not far from Stenay, where Dagobert II had been assassinated some five hundred years earlier...an abbey was established to house the monks... By 1108 they had mysteriously disappeared... Orval, by 1131, had become one of the fiefs owned by Saint Bernard.

"Before their departure from Orval, however, the Calabrian monks may have left a crucial mark on Western history. According to Gérard de Sède, at least, they included the man subsequently known as Peter the Hermit. If this is so, it would be extremely significant, for Peter the Hermit is often believed to have been Godfroi de Bouillon's personal tutor... In 1095, along with Pope Urban II, Peter made himself known throughout Christendom by charismatically preaching the need for a crusade--a holy war that would reclaim Christ's sepulchre and the Holy Land from the Muslim infidel. Today, Peter the Hermit is regarded as one of the chief instigators of the 'Crusades.'

"...mysterious Abbey of Orval...[is] where our research suggested the Prieuré de Sion may have had its inception." - 31:113,170

And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. - Rev. 13:11

“Arcadia was presided over by shepherds, and Pan was the great God of Arcadia… arcadia comes from the word Arcas – the son of Zeus & Callisto. Callisto is the Great Bear & Arcas is the Little Bear in astronomical terms, and in Greek Mythology.  These stars circumnavigate the North Pole Star – which esoterically is the symbol of high Kingship... the Bear is a ‘veil’ to a real name, which means shepherd. It is where the sheep (i.e. initiates) and shepherds (adepts & Masters) come from...” - 573

Callisto - "Most beautiful; a title of Artemis as totemic She-Bear and mother of Arcas, the Little Bear." (Greek Myth) / kallistos - 663

“…Phonice is to be identified with Callisto, who was raped by Zeus, changed into a wild animal by Artemis, and finally into the constellation of the Greater Bear by Zeus; Artemis, seeing the honor bestowed on Phonice/Callisto by Zeus, hastened to ‘double’ that honor by placing a second image of Phonice/Callisto (Ursa Minor) among the stars.” - 570:204

"The first four signs [of the Zodiac] would prefigure the person, work and triumph of the illustrious Redeemer.

    “Virgo, the Virgin, is the first sign. She has an ear of wheat in one hand and a branch in the other. The wheat is actually seed, and symbolizes the 'seed of the woman.' The branch is a familiar Old Testament name for the Messiah. The same woman is seen in the first Decan of this sign, Coma, holding a baby, the Branch, or the Desire of Nations. The next Decan in this group is Centaurus, a half-horse, half-man. This could represent the child who is born, having two natures: being both God and man. The last Constellation in this Sign is Bootes, or Arcturus, who is the Great Shepherd and Harvester. Together these images seem to portray, as in the Bible, the virgin birth of a child who has two natures, and the role of that child when he is grown as The Great Shepherd, leading His flock...

"The last four signs make the most sense if they stand for the final consummation of all things. This section would then foretell the coming judgments on the earth and the glorious outcome of Christ's reign.

 

    Taurus, the Bull, is an angry, rushing animal, which would be a meaningful symbol of God delivering His wrath during the Tribulation. The Decans are Orion, Eridanus, and Auriga. Orion is the warrior-prince with a sword on his side and his foot on the hare or serpent. Eridanus, the torturous River, is the River of Judgment belonging to Orion. Auriga, the Shepherd, is a picture of a powerful shepherd-king who tenderly holds a she-goat and two little goats in his left arm. This could be a picture of The Lord's comfort of the persecuted believers of this coming period of judgment.

    Gemini, The Twins, are two human figures seated together in loving closeness. This could portray the Marriage of the Lamb. (See Marriage Supper of the Lamb.) The Decans are Lepus, Canis Major, and Canis Minor. Lepus is the mad hare, the enemy under Orion's feet. Canis Major, Sirius, the Great Dog could prefigure the Prince coming in His glory. Then Canis Minor, Procyon, The Second Dog, would be his princely following.

    Cancer the Crab is the figure of a crab, in the act of taking and holding on with its pincers. This could be a picture of the victorious King of Kings when He returns, and the Decans, Ursa Minor, the Lesser Bear, Ursa Major the Greater Bear, and Argo, could picture His privileged followers. Ursa Minor could also mean the lesser sheepfold, and stand for the first-born who will be rulers, and Ursa Major could be the greater sheepfold, the ones born later. Argo, the Ship, brings the weary travelers home from their toils and travels.

    Leo, the Lion might easily picture Christ in His final victory over the Devil. All three of the Decans point to the destruction of the enemy, pictured as a serpent. Hydra, the fleeing Serpent, is about to be pounced upon by the lion. Crater, the Bowl of Wrath, is placed on the serpent. And Corvus, the Raven, the bird of doom, is also on the serpent, devouring his carcass." (Prophecy Central, Gospel in the Stars promo) - 850

 

N.B. Recall that “the Bear is a ‘veil’ to a real name, which means shepherd. It is where the sheep (i.e. initiates) and shepherds (adepts & Masters) come from...” Also, do not miss the striking similarities between the false 'gospel in the stars' and the astrological signs which governed Ancient Egypt during the Pharaonic Age (above).

 “This theory [The Gospel in the Stars] is endorsed today by such well known Bible teachers as Chuck Missler (Audio tape: 'The Mazzaroth') and Dr. James Kennedy of the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church (Message televised Jan. 7, 1996). It is also accepted by Dr. Henry M Morris in his book, The Long War Against God (pp. 265-269). Dr. Morris, president of the Institute for Creation Research.

    “Note: This theory of a 'Gospel In The Stars,' is accepted by many prophecy scholars, but rejected by others.” (Prophecy Central, Gospel in the Stars promo) - 850

 

"Startling discoveries related by eminent theologian Dr. D. James Kennedy prove that God created the Zodiac! God intended the stars to foretell the future of the world. Discover what Dr. Kennedy calls biblical astrology or the Gospel in the stars. Reading this book: The Real Meaning of the Zodiac, just might give you insight into your future." - 872 (back cover)

    "The eleventh sign [of the Zodiac]: Cancer, The Crab, represents 'The Completion of the Redeemer's Work in Regard to His own.' This is a picture of the Church possessed and held fast by Christ... One of the most obvious things about a crab is the two claws by which it grasps something and holds it firmly. So here we have a picture of the Church, which is being held as a possession of Christ...

    "The meaning is made even clearer as we consider the three decans [minor signs of the Zodiac]. On a planisphere Ursa Minor is found near the center of the ecliptic and is called today The Little Bear. However, this is not the ancient meaning of the constellations Ursa Minor and Ursa Major. In fact, never did a bear have such a tail as that! Actually, there is no bear in the planisphere or zodiacs of the Chaldeans, Persians, Egyptians, or the Indians. Rather, what we have here is a sheepfold, which is believed to be the original meaning of Ursa Minor.

    "The figure of a sheepfold probably comes from the fact that one of the brightest stars in Ursa Major is the star Dubheh, which means a 'Herd of Animals' and is very similar to the word Dob or the Hebrew Dowb, which means 'The Bear.' This could be the reason the sign changed over time. But it is really referring to a little fold and a great fold. God's Church is the little flock--the gathering together of his people...

    "The second decan [in the sign of Cancer] is Ursa Major, probably the best known of all of the constellations in the sky. We don't know it as the Great Bear, as the Greeks called it, but we call it The Big Dipper... Like Ursa Minor, Ursa Major is neither a dipper or a bear. Rather it is the greater sheepfold, as pictured in the most ancient planispheres or zodiacs of the various nations...

    "Other stars in Ursa Major are El Alcola, 'The Sheepfold'; Cab'd al Asad, 'Multitude of the Assembled'; El Kaprah, 'The Protected,' or in Hebrew 'The Redeemed' or 'Ransomed.' A more familiar star, Callisto, again means 'The Sheepfold.'...

    "The third and final decan of Cancer is Argo... Argo means 'The Ship'... Here, of course, is a picture of the famous and celebrated ship of the Argonauts of Greek mythology...which apparently has some sort of historical basis... Jason and a great band of heroes went out on a journey in the ship Argo in search of the Golden Fleece. It is a picture of Christ Jesus, the Captain of the well-fought fight, the Captain of the Argonauts' ship... To provide that lost innocence and righteousness, Christ has to go to the city of Colchis, and there in a garden He was hung upon a tree guarded by a serpent. Jason (Christ) alone was able to destroy the serpent and recover that righteousness, this Golden Fleece, which now had been transformed as having come from the sheep that was killed. It is a picture of Christ, the Lamb of God, who gave His life to provide a covering for man's lost righteousness." - 872:109-115

"The adventures of Jason and the Argonauts and their search for the Golden Fleece is one of many legends concerning a heroic quest for a golden apple. The Greek word for sheep - 'melon'-  can also mean apple. 'The Golden Fleece' can be translated as  'The Golden Apple.'  The adventures of Jason in Colchis are almost identical with that of Hercules in the Hesperides and also with that of Siegfried. All three fight a serpent dragon. The prize a golden treasure." - 894

'The  connection of the apple tree with immortality is both ancient and widespread'. --Robert Graves, The White Goddess'

"Mr. Lewis Spence, The Minor Traditions of British Mythology, tells us that the common apple tree reached Greece from the North. It was adopted by the Greek sun-god as especially sacred to him, and from the Celtic word 'Abal' an apple, the god derived his name Apollo. Avalon, Avallach and Avalloch are Celtic variations of the same word... [Rhys, Arthurian Legend]" - 894
