WHY DO YOU HAVE A FISH SYMBOL ON THE BACK OF YOUR CAR?

In this series, ON THE MYSTERIES, so far, we have explored four world civilizations,

Page 1.

which have existed on Earth, three of which have already been destroyed by flood and fire. Most recently, we have examined the Fourth World Civilization and the Gods who helped mankind after the great Deluge and some of the demons who have hindered our progress.

In the book, "They Cast No Shadows" we have a collection of essays on the Illuminati, revisionist history and suppressed technologies, by Brian Desborough (2002; Writers Club Press/ iUniverse.com)

"Throughout recorded history, the Illuminati has successfully withheld from humankind major aspects of history and science in order to subjugate the masses," writes Brian Desborough in his extraordinary book "They Cast No Shadows."

"Historical, religious and political truths have been withheld from the general public in order to perpetuate armed conflict," he continues. "Similarly if the presently suppressed technology were to be made commercially available, disease, famine and environmental pollution virtually would become eradicated."

The book’s title comes from the creepy black magic mantra recited at Illuminati human sacrificial rituals. "What is ours we take tonight; As ring of fire burning bright; We stand behind the burning light; And cast no shadows in the night."

In this issue, we will be looking at two types of Magic - a White and a Black Magic - which are being used by powerful individuals in an incredible battle today.

(If you think Jesus’ cursing the fig tree is not related to Magic, think again.)

In order to understand how we have gotten to where we are in world affair, we must begin by picking up some of the strands, which we have been weaving into this tapestry, in order to complete the picture. We begin with:

THE MYSTICAL NAME OF JOHN AND THE MEANING OF THE FISH

It seems more than likely the origins of the name of John are to be found in Mesopotamia. According to a web page belonging to Dr. Michael Magee's Mystery of Jesus Pages we learn the following:

"In Greek, John's name is Ioannes, the Greek transliteration of the Hebrew name Johanan.

Curiously Ioannes resembles the Greek for the pagan god Ea, [Enki] the God of the House of Water -- sweet refreshing water, not briny sea water -- which is Oannes. More curiously, Oannes pronounced in Aramaic would come out close to Enosh!

"Now Oannes was a savior god of the Babylonians -- the god who saved mankind from the flood by warning the Babylonian Noah about it, allowing him to build an ark.

Either the early Christians have given the Baptist an appropriate name of the gods with whom educated Greeks were familiar, or the Jews had already made these associations.

"Johanan is always given as meaning the ‘Grace of God’ but it is a name which appears only in scriptural books written after the return from Babylonian exile, notably Chronicles. It seems that the name Johanan actually was brought back from exile with the returning

Page 2.

priests. Johanan therefore is Oannes in Hebrew and the meaning Grace of God was devised for it later.

Thus John the Baptist was given the name Johanan precisely because his duty was that of the god, Oannes.

He had to save mankind by warning of the coming judgement to allow the righteous to repent and survive into God's Kingdom."

As to the mystical nature of the name John, Mr. Bryant, informs us, 'The ancient and true name of the dove was, as I have shewn, Ionah, and Ionas. It was a very sacred emblem, and seems to have been at one time almost universally received.

For, not only the MITZRAIM, and the rest of the line of HAM, esteemed it in this light: but it was admitted as an hieroglyphic among the Hebrews: and the mystic dove was regarded as a symbol from the days of Noah, by all those who were of the Church of God.

"The prophet who was sent upon an embassy to the Ninevites, is styled IONAS: a title probably bestowed upon him as a messenger of the Deity.

The great Patriarch who preached righteousness to the Antediluvians, is, by Berosus and Abydenus, styled OAN and OANNES, which is the same as Jonah. The author of the Apocalypse is denominated in the like manner: whom the Greeks style Iwannhv, Joannes.

And when the great forerunner of our Savior was to be named, his father industriously called him Iwannhv for the same reason. (The name was imposed antecedent to his birth.)

The circumstances, with which the imposition of this name was attended, are remarkable; and the whole process, as described by the Evangelist, well worth our notice.
Luke 1:59, etc.

~~ "And it came to pass that on the eighth day, etc.'"

"Jonas, the amphibious, was swallowed, and returned again in three days from the fish. He was the same person as Hercules, or as Heri-Clo, the Savior, swallowed at the same time and place with Jonas, who prophesied the destruction of Nineveh about the year 600 B.C.

This was the time of the famous central eclipse of Thales, or conjunction of the Sun and Moon, the time when the Oriental Messiah, Cyrus, was born, he having the solar title, and who having established the Persian Monarchy at Babylon, restored the Jews and abolished idolatry.

He is still worshipped, under the name of Jonas, on Mount Libanus, by the Curds or Culdees formerly named.

He has the same appellation, according to Mr. Bryant, as the half-man, half-fish, or amphibious being called OANNES, who appeared for the instruction of mankind, etc., according to Sanchuniathon, under the name of DAGON, which was the name of the fish which harbored Jonas, or saved him, and the meaning of which is ‘Savior.

"This Oannes, or Ioannes we find again after about 600 years, born of an aged woman, called Anna, the name of the mother of the Italian Janus, miraculously foretold by the prophet Zacharias, to whom his birth was announced by an angel.

He was the forerunner of Jesus Christ, and called, as above-mentioned by the celebrated Julian, Xrhjov Iwannhv. He was by profession a Saviour of Men by means of baptism or immersion, like Jonas in the water.

Jonas was immersed three days in the ocean for the salvation of the Ninevites, as Jesus afterward was buried three days for the salva-

Page 3.

tion of the Jews and of mankind. After this we find another person called IOANNES, a fisherman, beloved by Jesus, of whom Jesus declared from the Cross that he should not die till his return. And after this, another Ioannes, who had revelations from God."
- Pp, 291-293, Vol. II, ANAL. ANC. MYTH. Bryant

As we continue with this chapter, we will need to remember what Jesus said about John the Baptist, "Verily I say unto you, Among those that have been born of women, there has not risen a greater [prophet] than John the Baptist . . ."

According to this statement, Jesus placed John on a higher plane than Moses.!! In my book ‘Forbidden Truths Revealed’, I discussed the followers of John the Baptist, the foremost of which was Simon the Magician and showed that they were famous for their feats of magic.

The Clementines were written to show the difference between the magic used by the followers of John and the followers of Jesus Christ.

Peter, in his journey to Rome went from town to town undoing the Magic of Simon Magus. He eventually caught up to Simon, as he was flying above the people in Rome and caused him to fall to earth, breaking both legs, by praying to the Father of the Lord Jesus.
(See my book FORBIDDEN TRUTHS REVEALED.

We’ll come back to this line of thought in a moment.

ENKI, GOD OF PURE WATERS

Through out the centuries since the Great Deluge, the ‘Wise Men of Enki’ have practiced a ritual called ‘baptism’ and other rituals, which are not so well known. His main symbol was a mythical creature half man and half fish, called Dagon.

In some Babylonian legends it was this fish who spoke to Noah and advised him to make an ‘ark’. I do not personally believe that Enki was part fish and part man any more than I believe Yahweh was a donkey. This was just a symbol. Enki ruled the Age of Pisces as he also does the Age of Aquarius.

Now this ‘fish’ also shows up in the Hebrew scriptures in strange ways. It was this ‘fish’ which swallowed Jonah, preserved him from drowning and deposited him three days later on a beach near Ninevah, in order to preach to them repentance, lest Yahweh destroy them.

We now understand from studying the Gospels that there is an allegory within them: the use of words that we don't understand today. We now know that bap

Page 4.

tismal priests were called "fishers"; we know that those who aided them by hauling the baptismal candidates into the boats in large nets were called "fishermen"; and we know that the baptismal candidates themselves were called "fishes".

The apostles James and John were both ordained "fishers". The brothers Peter and Andrew were lay "fishermen", and Jesus promised them priesthood within the new ministry, saying "I will make you to become fishers of men".

The name Moses means ‘drawn out’ and his wife’s name, Ziphorah, means ‘shining crest of the wave’.!!! We have now to discover how Christian baptism & magic differed for John the Baptist’s.

THE ESSENES, SABAEANS, MANDAEANS AND YEZIDIS

The Essenes - The Encyclopaedia Britannica, 14th Edition (1930 printing), relates the following:

"The Essenes, while clinging to what they held to be original Mosaism, yet conceived and practiced their ancestral faith in ways which showed distinct traces of syncretism, or the operation of influences foreign to Judaism proper.

They thus occupied an ambiguous position on the borders of Judaism. Similarly Christian Essenism was syncretist in spirit, as we see from its best-known representatives, the Elchasaites, of whom we first hear about 220, when a certain Alcibiades of Apamea in Syria (some 60m. South of Antioch) brought to Rome the ‘Book of Helxai’ the manifesto of their distinctive message
(Hippol., Philos. ix. 13)

and again some 20 years later, when Origen refers to one of their leaders as having lately arrived at Caesarea
(Euseb. vi. 38).

"The Periodoi or Circuits must not be thought of as strictly Elchasaite, since it knew no baptism distinct from the ordinary Christian one. It seems rather to represent a later and modified Essene Christianity, already half Catholic, such as would suit a date after 250, in keeping with Eusebius' evidence.

Confirmation of such a date is afforded by the silence of the Syrian Didascalia, itself perhaps dating from about 250, as to any visit of Simon Magus of Caesarea, in contrast to the reference in its later form, the Apostolical Constitutions (c. 350-400), which is plainly colored (vi. 9) by the Clementine story.

On the other hand, the Didascalia seems to have been evoked partly by Judaizing propaganda in north Syria."

Hastings' Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics, by Brandt. G. E. von Grunebaum, in Classical Islam, tells us that "The prophet Elxai who preached in East Jordan at the time of Trajan proclaimed Christ as a being born many times in different people, who frequently speaks to humanity, not as himself, but through prophets."

The Elkesaites came together about 100 A.D. The founder of the sect is named Elkesai. He began preaching in the third year of Trajan. This suggests his birth to be 70 A.D. From the description given in Hastings' he appears to have been schooled in the doctrines of the haemerobaptist sect of Essenes.

Page 5.

"Since Elkesai came from the Trans-Jordan region, this is probably the case. After 68 A.D. the Essene central authority was disbanded, and the subsects split up and moved on to various locations.

The haemerobaptists would have stayed near the Jordan, since they held to living water as being the only efficacious medium for baptisms.

"The name of Elkesai but only the name crops out once more in an ethnographic note in the Kitab al-Fihrist by Ibn Abi Ja'qub al Nadim (ed. Flugel, Leipzig, 1871-72, p. 340).

The note refers to a religious community whose adherents inhabited the wide-spreading swampy region traversed by the Euphrates in its lower course, and were locally known to the Arabs as al-Mughtasila, i.e., 'those who wash themselves.'

We are informed that 'these people are numerous in the marsh-lands, and they are, in fact, the Sabaeans of the marshes.' They must accordingly be regarded as identical with the Sabians (also meaning 'baptists') mentioned in three passages of the Qur'an (ii. 59, v. 73, xxii., 17) as a people who, together with Jews and Christians, are to have liberty in the exercise of their religion.

"Among the Jews the sect of the Essenes accepted the teaching of Elkesai. From the time of the Jewish war this group of zealous baptists had settled in the district to the east of the Jordan, where they had the opportunity to follow their practice of ritual bathing in streams and wells.

Elkesai's teaching was in many points akin to their own. Burnt-offerings had already been discarded by their fathers, even while the altars of the ‘true’ God were still burning at Jerusalem.

It is likely enough, too, that a belief in astral deities would prevail in a community which worshipped the sun at his rising. Whether the Essenes abandoned that worship in compliance with Elkesai's general injunction against turning to the East in prayer, we do not know...

Nevertheless, they must have in some degree maintained their distinctive character and their separate existence as a community, else Epiphanius could not have spoken of the remnant of their adherents in his day as a definite group among the Elkesaites."

THE REAL REASON FOR CHRISTIAN BAPTISM

Encyclopaedia Britannica tells us: Aphraates was a significant Syrian Christian, head of a convent near Mosul, dedicated to St. Matthew.

He wrote a series of discourses on the faith, from c. 337 - 345 C.E. He was known as hakkima pharsaya, 'the Persian sage,' was born to 'heathen' parents, and was probably a convert himself.

In Birks, we find the connection to our story:

"Aphraates appears to divide Christians into the 'sons of the Covenant,' and the Penitents. The Penitent is the general adherent, who has not as yet volunteered for the sacramental life; the son (or daughter) of the covenant is the baptized Christian, who is admitted to partake of the Eucharist.

Those who volunteer for Baptism are to be warned 'He whose heart is set to the state of matrimony, let him marry before baptism, lest he fall in the spiritual contest and be killed... He that hath not offered himself and hath not yet put on his armour, if he turn back he is not blamed.' In other words, the average

Page 6.

Christian of this community looked forward to becoming a full church member only at a somewhat advanced age, and as a prelude to retiring morally and physically from the life of this world.

In Apraates, baptism is not the common seal of every Christian's faith, but a privilege reserved for celibates, or at least those who intended to live a celibate life for the future.

The Sabaeans

Another group of ‘Wise Men of Enki’, who have existed for time immemorable, are the Sabians. The word ‘sabian’ comes from the Arabic ‘sabi‘una’ which means to ‘baptize’.

Others insist the word means ‘wise men’. Actually both may be right, for there certainly has been a secret group of men, known as ‘the wise men of Enki’, who call themselves Sabaeans.

Remember, the Greeks killed AEschylus for revealing the Sabian Mysteries in one of his dramas entitled ‘Promothus".

The Sabaeans, came from Saba, in the Yemen, and the Red Sea Coastline of the Arabian Peninsula and eventually settled in Babylon. (These Sabaeans are not to be confused with the Sabaeas of Axum.)

From the Sabaens of Saba, came the Nabateans, the Jafnids, the Ghassanids and the Wise Men of Damkar (Dhamar, the location of a very important and famous Islamic University). Damkar was (and still is) a real place on the map. As the Magi, they were famous for their feats of Magic. They arrived in Babylon sometime between the 9th to 8th Centuries B.C.

The Yezidis

And, if my reader will recall, in an earlier chapter, we also took a look at the Yezedis. The Yezidis were actually part of Israel but were carried away as captives to lands north of Babylon. Upon being initiated into the Order of the Peacock Angel,"a holy

thread, of intertwined black and red wool, is put around the neck.

They believed that the great Archangel Azazil (Melek Tawus), was created on Sunday (1st day) and that the Most High "made Melek Tawus ruler over all." In the book of Jude, we note that Michael, the Arch-angel of God, is seen rendering to Satan the respect due to one superior in rank.

This powerful ‘Angel’ is Ruler of principalities, powers, and world-rulers of darkness, with whom, as Paul tells us, we have to wage a fearful warfare. - Eph. 6:12

Gurdjieff's Beelzebub, like the Yezidis Melek Tawus is a being fallen from nearness to God, who redeems himself and is restored to grace. Each has fallen because in self-will, following the dictates of his reason, he acted in disobedience to what was higher.

For the Yezidis, the "Devil" is everywhere, a "practitioner," in the sense of the third of the types of school about which Gurdjieff told Ouspensky, fit for the business of the world.

In his nearness and familiarity, he is an archetype of the returning prodigal, a model for the rest of us who have "fallen," who are much closer to "devils" than "angels."

The "Devil" is also what none of us wish to look at in ourselves, but must nevertheless see, for that "looking" actualizes the possibility of redemption. Perhaps this is what Jesus was referring to, when he said, "If you do not bring out what is within you, what is within you will kill you"

Page 7.

The author(s) of the Necro. regard the planetary deities as important entities worthy of worship. This might seem contradictory, but it is evident that there are similarities too close to be simply dismissed. For certain the editors of the Necronomicon have labored to tie the book with the Yezidis. (In the 20th century, A.D., H. P.

Lovecraft wrote an alleged history of the Necronomicon, stating that it was written by Abdul Alhazred, the mad poet of Sa'na, in Yemen.)

The planets play an important part in the rituals in the Necro. "Of the names of the planets ESTERA (Ishtar, Venus), also called RUHA D'QUDSHA, 'holy spirit'), ENBA (Nebo, Mercury), SIN (Moon), KEWAN (Saturn), BIL (Jupiter), and NIRIG (Nergal, Mars) reveal their Babylonian origin; IL or ILIL, the Sun, is also known as KADUSH and ADUNAY

(the Adonai of the Old Testament); as lord of the planetary spirits his place is in the midst of them; they are the source of all temptation and evil amongst men.

The houses of the planets, as well as the earth and A SECOND WORLD IMMEDIATELY TO THE NORTH OF IT, REST UPON ANVILS laid by Hibil on the belly of UR.

The great prophet of the Yezidis was the Sheik-Adi. His temple in Lalish, still has the image of a Serpent at it’s exit, (another symbol of the healing Enki). He came from Baalbec, to reform his people and their religion about the time of the first European Crusade to liberate Jerusalem from the Muslims.

Every year, at the site of Sheik-Adi’s tomb, the people sing music so pathetic and so sweet as is never heard in the East. The song they sing, is the "Makam Azerat Esau," or the Song of the Lord Jesus.

(The secret song which Jesus taught his followers, in Arabic!!) The voices of men and women were blended in harmony with the soft notes of many flutes.

At measured intervals the song was broken by the loud clash of cymbals and tambourines; and those who were without the precincts of the tomb then joined in the melody. And yes, the Yezidis still practice baptism.

The Mandaeans

Prior to the arrival of Sabaeans in Babylon, another group of interesting people (now known as the Mandaeans) had left Egypt to escape the rampages of the mighty Nile River. They settled along the Euphrates River, not far from Babylon so that they could practice their ritual Baptism. The word ‘manda’ means ‘knowledge’ but is sometimes used as a name for Saturn.

Page 8.

they also believe that the Christians have perverted the teachings of John the Baptist.!!

THE DESIRE TO FORESEE THE FUTURE -

IS ALSO THE DESIRE TO CONTROL THE FUTURE

There is a legitimate gift called Second Sight, which many of the Prophets possessed by genetic inheritance. Others obtained it through studious labor in schools for prophets.

Second Sight

The saludadors of Seville were seers who had a widespread reputation of being able to prophecy, perform cures, and see at a distance.

John Dee communicating with beings in other dimensions; these were spirits or angelic entities who taught him a comprehensive system of magical and spiritual arts.

This is a deep-rooted tradition, and just as the fairies are able to influence or appear in the human world, so may human beings step into, or have been carried off into, the fairy realm, which is subterranean.

Elisha is known to have had this gift and to discovered it to his servant in 2 Kings 6:17 when he blinded the Syrians.

Peter, also in Acts 5:9, foresaw the death of Sapphira, by perceiving, as it were, her winding sheet about her before-hand, And how about the Apostle Paul, ( 2 Corinthians 12:4) who got such a vision and sight as could not be told.

Elisha, also, in his chamber, saw Gehazi his servant at a great distance taking a reward from Naaman, (2 Kings 5:26). Therefore, were the [Biblical] prophets often called Seers, or men of second and more exalted sight than others.

The techniques used by Nostradamus are clearly defined in his own words, and far from being a Hermetic or Kabalistic system, as we might expect from a Jewish (converted to Christian) doctor, were of a Christian nature.

Robert Kirk, a Scotsman, who wrote the book, "THE SECRET COMMONWEALTH" in 1691, is said, to this day, to be trapped in the Otherworld; in the Aberfoyle region of Scotland (he is reckoned not to have died, but to have been translated into fairyland).

It should be emphasized that the Celtic fairyland is not a realm of cozy little elves and sprites, but as Kirk describes it, an entire world with powerful beings living in it according to their own natural laws.

We also know from early Irish tradition that the sidh or fairy people were the old gods and goddesses, and on a more primal level were the Ancestors of the people of the Land.

A curious tale is related of attempts to bring about Kirk's return, and the historical Kirk, who evidently "knew more than was good for his health", and was killed ?? by them, is associated with a fairy hill which may still be visited.

His book, was not only a remnant of Celtic paganism, but an account of an active initiatory tradition, related in some ways to shamanism, though this word is so, frequently misapplied today that it might be better not to use it in the context of Gaelic/Celtic traditions. Kirk did not, however, consider genetic inheritance to be the sole means by which Second Sight is acquired,

Page 9.

for he describes initiatory techniques connected to it, one of which seems to be for acquiring the Sight permanently (pages 32-33) and another for a temporary experience of it (page 33). He also makes some comments upon the nature of light, and a higher order or octave of light connected to seership (pages 34-35).

There are women, yet alive who tell [that] they were taken away, when in child-bed to nurse fairy [spelt ffayrie] children, a lingering voracious image of theirs being left in their place, like their reflection in a mirror, which, as if it were some insatiable spirit in an assumed body, made first semblance to devour the meat, that it cunningly carried by, then left the carcass as it expired, and departed thence, by a natural and common death.

When the child is weaned, the nurse either dies, or is conveyed back, or gets to choose to stay there.

But if any Superterranean [that is, human] be so subtle as to practice sleights [tricks] for procuring a privacy [that is, knowledge of) any of their [fairy] Mysteries, such as making use of their ointments, which as Gyge's ring, makes them invisible or nimble, or casts them into a trance, or alters their shape, or makes things appear at a vast distance, and so forth, they smite them [the human concerned] without pain as [if] with a puff of wind.

And thus [the fairies] bereave them of both their natural and acquired sights in the twinkling of an eye, [for] both those sights, where once they [are] come, are in the same organ and inseparable. Or they [may] strike them dumb.

There are other methods which have been used by various races to accomplish foreknowledge but which Moses forbade to the people of Israel. Moses had commanded his people, "When you enter the land which the LORD your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the detestable things of those nations.

There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead.

For whoever does these things is detestable to the LORD; and because of these detestable things the LORD your God will drive them out before you."
- Deuteronomy 18:9-14

In the New Testament, witchcraft, which is the unlawful relationship between men and the kingdom of Darkness, is still treated as one of the works of the flesh.
-Gal. 5:20

THE URIM, THUMMIM & TERAPHIM

However, Moses did not leave his people bereft of a means to ascertain God’s will in certain matters. He gave the High Priest of the nation a breastplate containing Urim and Thummim to give simple answers, such as ‘yes’ or ‘no’.

The Hebrew of these terms means ‘lights’ (urim) and ‘truths’ (thummim). It may be that the urim was transparent and permitted light to pass through it, striking the thummim (which was believed to have been black). - Deut. 33:8, 9 Ex. 28:30

The Use of Teraphim

There was another method for determining the future, used by Old Testament personages, which involved the use of ‘teraphim’. This word has intentionally been mistrans-

Page 10.

lated in the King James Bible to prevent people from learning about this diabolical method of learning the future. The word is translated as ‘images’ but they were not ‘images’ in any kind of sense, we would think of.

A teraphim was created by placing a living person in a vat of honey for a specified period of days and then cutting off his head. A piece of parchment with a verse of scripture was then placed under it’s tongue.

When questions were put to it, it would answer verbally. ‘Teraphim’ were used by the King of Babylon (Ezek. 21:21), Rachel, Jacob’s wife (Gen. 31:19, 33, 34), and Michal, king David’s wife (I Sam. 19:13).
See also II Ki. 23:24.

THE TEMPLARS AND BAPHOMET

After John the Baptist was killed, his disciples buried his body but we do not know what Salome’s mother Herodotus, did with the head. That was always a mystery. It seems reasonable that she wanted the head of John the Baptist, to master his visionary powers . . .

The classic prototype of such an egregore is Baphomet, the alleged egregore of the Templars, who was (as the Roman Emperor of the Gods) likewise worshipped in the form of a bust.

In the secret statutes of the Templars, Baphomet was besought with the introduction to the Qu'ran and dismissed with the 24th chapter of the Book of Sirach." - P. R. Koenig, Baphomet plays a certain role, the right spelling is 'Baffometus' and means 'the man with a beard', originating from the Italian 'bafil’- ‘beard'.

In the French language ‘Baphomet’ is a compound of the words 'baphe' (baptism) and 'metis' (wisdom).

I have seen references in Masonic literature which purports that shortly after the Crusaders captured Jerusalem, their leaders had a private meeting with the representatives of a Middle Eastern fraternity, known a Brethren of the Valley (Lebanon).

According to Arthur E. Waite, who was a famous researcher, " . . . a perpetuation legend reflected from that of the SWEDISH RITE.

It begins on the authority of Baron Tschoudy -- but without citing him -- by an account of his mythical ‘KNIGHTS OF THE MORNING AND OF PALESTINE’; but as so-called philosophical principles are substituted for Christian theosophical doctrine, the thesis is

(1) that the supposititious 'anchorites' were descended from the builders of the First Temple,

(2) that they had been wanderers ever since the dispersion of the Jewish tribes,

(3) that the hope which they 'nourished' was one of rebuilding the 'ancient edifice,' obviously as a new Temple of Israel, for the better advancement of which they made, when the time came, a common cause with the Crusaders, 'abjuring the outward observance of their creed, yet cherishing it in their hearts.'

"Some three years before we have tidings of Knights Templar in English-speaking countries, Baron Tschoudy published a curious collection called L'ETOILE FLAMBOYANTE, in which he describes a secret Order of Chivalry subsisting from immemorial time under the denomination of KNIGHTS OF THE MORNING.

[Waite note: They were otherwise KNIGHTS OF PALESTINE, the oldest of military Orders, ancestors and authors of Masonry; but it is to be understood that their true designation is veiled under the published titles, even as the SONS OF THE VALLEY were known under other names in the

Page 11.

secret circles. During early Christian centuries the Knights dwelt in the deserts. Their intention was to rebuild the Temple at Jerusalem -- on which see ante, pp. 145-7.] - Arthur E. Waite

It is possible that the head idol was intended to represent the severed head of John the Baptist, based on allegations that he was revered by the Order. The Templars took part in the sack of Constantinople during the Fourth Crusade in 1203-4.

Robert de Clari described the opulence and numerous relics taken from the sacred chapel of the Boucoleon Palace, amongst them supposedly the head of John the Baptist.

An ‘egregore’ is a magical entity that is artificially created by the focused thoughts and desires of a medium (analogous in many ways to Tibetan tulpas.) Supposedly a medium or statue could then serve as a tenant for the egregore, nourished by the sexual life-powers of the members.

Dr. Hugh Schonfield in The Essene Odyssey "had discovered a system of cryptography - he called it the 'Atbash Cipher' - which had been used to conceal certain names in

Essene/Zadokite/Nazarene texts. This system of coding figured, for example, in a number of the scrolls found at Qumran. Schonfield "showed that by applying the Hebrew Atbash code to the name Baphomet, the name Sophia [ShVPIA], female wisdom, is revealed. " - Baigent, Leigh & Lincoln, The Messianic Legacy

Interestingly, it has been suggested that the Knights Templars were "infected" with the Johannite or Mandaean heresy that denounced Jesus as a "false prophet" and in his place recognized John the Baptist as the true Messiah. Their sacred books are in an Aramaic dialect, which has close affinities with that of the Talmud of Babylon.

Meanwhile, two early Grand Masters of the Priory of Sion are said to have had Johannite tendencies: Leonardo da Vinci and Sir Isaac Newton. Notwithstanding that, the famous founder of the Knights Templars, Hughes de Payens, has been accused by the Vatican of being a Johannite.

After the Order of the Knights Templar had been suppressed by the king of France, new initiates were required to take up as directed the Crown of Philippe le Bel, cast it beneath his feet and exclaim: 'Down with tyranny'; he next takes the Papal Tiara and tramples on it in like manner, saying: 'Down with imposture and superstition'.

THE DEEDS OF THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR / ILLUMINATI

Leaving aside this brief foray into esoteric history, it is as well to note that Prince Bernhard, in addition to his Bilderberg role and as head of the Dutch Johannite Order, was also an honorary member of Himmler's SS and worked in NW7, the global intelligence arm of I.G.

Farben which acted in the interests of the Nazi cause. The activities of NW7 in Latin America before, during and after World War II are deeply interwoven in this story.

In the early 1800's, the Illuminati decided to infiltrate the Vatican from within, beginning with the infiltration of rogue priests within seminaries, graduating to control of seminaries, then moving to control of the College of Cardinals, and then finally, to control the Papacy itself.

From the beginning, they calculated they might need all of 200 years to accomplish this goal. However, they knew they must control the Papacy with Black Magick, for their Christ -- the Biblical Antichrist -- could not arise unless the occult world was united under the Black banner.

Now, let us take up the unofficial story of the official secret Black Magick ceremony to commemorate this Black Magick victory.

It was held on June 29, 1963. I find it highly instructive that the specific day chosen for this black coronation was the 29th of the month, a day that adds up to '11', the number of Antichrist in both the Bible [Daniel 7:7-8] and in Satanic doctrine.

After the public ceremony on June 21, the Black Magick ceremony occurred on June 28; however, it was to be a Parallel Ceremony, a ceremony which was to be held in two distinct geographical locations at the identical time.

Malachi Martin explains in, "Windswept House". Listen:

"Such unobtrusive elements as the Pentagram and the black candles and the appropriate draperies could be part of the Ceremonial in Rome. But other Ruberics -- the Bowl of Bones and the Ritual Din, for example, the sacrificial animals and the victim -- would be too much.

There would have to be a Parallel Enthronement. A Cocelebrating could be accomplished with the same effect by the Brethren in an Authorized Targeting Chapel. Provided all the participants in both locations 'targeted' every element of the Event on the Roman Chapel, then the Event in its fullness would be accomplished specifically in the target area.

It would all be a matter of unanimity of hearts, identity of intention and perfect synchronization of words and actions between the Targeting Chapel and the Target Chapel. The living wills and the thinking minds of the Participants concentrated on the specific Aim of the Prince would transcend all distance."
- [P. 8]

In other words, the required sacrificial animal, and the human victim, that could not be ceremonially murdered in the secret ceremony in the Roman Chapel within the walls of the Vatican could be carried out at the parallel ceremony in the off-site "Authorized Targeting Chapel".

Martin says this chapel was located in South Carolina, USA! [Ibid.]

Through this Black Magick ceremony, the first truly Black Magick Pope in history -- Pope Paul VI -- was officially and powerfully enthroned. The Parallel Ceremony was absolutely essential, for the true merger of Satanic forces worldwide could not have otherwise occurred.

But, occur they did. The massive Satanic forces of Black and White Magic ceased their battling for supremacy, joining forces at the "Latter Time" in order to finally move the world into the Kingdom of Antichrist, the New World Order.

From that moment, final decisions were made by the top leadership of the Masters of the Illuminati, not the Vatican. The top leadership shifted to the British Monarchy, to the House of Windsor [Read An

THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY

John F. Kennedy was a Knight of Columbus, "Rebel" to the Pope, in attempting to destroy the Jesuit General's CIA and end "Spelly's War" in Vietnam, and therefore was a "notorious tyrant" whose assassination was lawful, according to the Jesuit Francisco Suarez in his Defensio Catholicae Fidei.
- "Vatican Assassins", p. 39

"President Kennedy was planning to use the powers of his office of the presidency to fully inform the American people of the Illuminati plan to enslave us, and only weeks later, he was assassinated.

However, his assassination was carried out according to the favorite number of the Illuminati, the eleven:

Kennedy was murdered during the 11th month [November] on the 22nd day [11 x 2] at the 33rd parallel [11 x 3]

Kennedy was murdered in the Masonic Dealey Plaza, the site of an old Masonic Lodge during the time of the Texas revolution designed to free Texas from Mexican control.

Dealey Plaza also has an obelisk commemorating the site as being "the first fraternal Lodge in Texas".
