This syllabus is being provided as a supplement to the class on the Book of Revelation being taught by J.M. Beatty. It is designed to inform the reader of the covert plot by the elite of world politics to usher in a one world government utilizing the United Nations as the central hub. The current political situation of today could have used the book of Revelation as its script; there is no doubt the political elite have a "PLAN" to create a world government suitable for the Antichrist to rule the world. They also have plans to usher in a universal religion patterned after the New Age movement, and to phase out individual worship. Please read and ponder these facts as we study Revelation together. Before we begin let me define the font structure of this syllabus. The type style called Arial, the type you are currently readly will reflect my personal comments, while the type style called "Times New Roman" will communicate direct quotes from my research material. All research is footnoted, and references are at the back of the syllabus.

To associate the New Age movement, the political environment of the world, and the United Nations with the ancient mysteries of Babylon is historically accurate. Lets conduct a brief historical survey to expose the heinous roots of these three players in the big picture of world politics.

The first point I wish to address is the fact that Babylonian paganism understood that God is God, but they refused to honor Him as God. In order to accomplish this feat they denied the existence of a personal, eternal Creator. The Apostle Paul, in his epistle to the Romans (1:18-32) also realized that paganism is a religious system that is extremely self centered, because they have lose the ability to be thankful. The mystery religions of ancient Babylon taught that man could evolve into Godhood, an intimate relationship with a personal God was not necessary. In simple terms, paganism is consumed with self awareness in its arrogant pursuits of Godhood.

The second point about paganism that Paul presented in his epistle to the Romans is its demonic drive to change the image of God, the Creator into the images of His creation. Paganism would rather worship the creatures of creation in IDOL form, then the all powerful Creator. To worship the creation not the Creator is call Pantheism; this pagan belief states that the whole universe is God, every rock, tree, mountain, stream and sea. The Pantheist believes that there is no personal God, but every atom in the universe comprises a universal master mind called God, therefore when a Pantheist worships simple crystals they are venerating the universal master mind. Pantheism also expresses itself in the form of Animism, which believes that natural objects (i.e. tree, rock, stream) have a soul that is part of the universal master mind. The Christian church believes these doctrines died centuries ago in the ashes of ancient Rome, but this is not the case. The New Age Movement has resurrected the ancient pagan mysteries of Babylon, the worship of the creature not the Creator may by as close to us as our next door neighbors.

The third point that associates the thoughts of Paul with the book of Revelation is the fact that fornication is a by-product of unrestrained paganism. An angel in the Fourteenth chapter of Revelation rebuked the mystical city of Babylon for their corporate fornication, then we must assume that the corruption of paganism will contaminate the entire world. The declaration is clear, Babylon is fallen: why does the book of Revelation prophesy that the end time religious, political and social environment of the world would be named Babylon? In order to answer this question we will conduct a brief survey of the historical Babylon.

BABYLON, A HISTORICAL SURVEY

The biblical account ascribes the founding of Babylon to the descendants of Cush, the followers of Nimrod, prior to 4000 BC. (Gen 10:8-10). Nimrod ordered and officiated the construction of the Tower of Babel, which was a Ziggurat, a temple usually dedicated to local deities. Archeology have identified 24 different Ziggurats in the Babylonian empire. The city did not reach the height of its glory until the reign of Nebuchadnezzar (605-562 BC.) According to the Bible the founder of Babylon was Nimrod, who was known to the Babylonians as Merodach. Nimrod built the city together with Erech and Niffer. Merodach became the head of the Babylonian Pantheon, partly because his city was the capital of the empire, the center of worship and the place of the great tower of Babel. 1

According to the Greek historian, Herodotus, the city was square in plan, and measured 120 furlongs each way. Each side was about 14 miles long, and the area of the city was approximately 196 miles. Around the city was a deep and broad moat full of water. The wall was 87 feet thick and 311 feet high. The city was built on both sides of the Euphrates. The average house in the city was 3 or 4 stories high. 2

BABYLON, A RELIGIOUS SURVEY

The religion of Babylon was based on the belief in a Pantheon of Gods and Goddesses, but there lay deep in their conscience the belief in Animism. They thought every object, animated or inanimate had a ZI or life. The early Sumerians also possessed a strong belief in Ghosts. The LIL or ghost was a night demon, it could only be controlled or cast out by magic and mystical incantations. In fact this belief in night monsters motivated Isaiah the Prophet to use this doctrine as a symbol in his writing ( Isa 34:14). The Babylonian lethargy emphasized the works of peace, but the true heart of the nation was that of war. The central focus of the Babylonian religion was the sun and the moon, this belief in the arterial plan was the root of astrology and the belief in the Zodiac. The moon was always more important to the Babylonians because of its use in the calendar. At one point the Babylonians worshipped 25 local deities, who were associated with different cities as their patron deity. Eventually two pagan deities arose as central figures, they were Ishtar and Mardock. The Babylonian religion first introduced the goat's head as a object of worship, this fact was confirmed by the bronze goat head excavated at Tello. It is interesting to note that the goat's head is a sacred symbol to Satanism and the Occult. 3

 ISHTAR

Ishtar was the Babylonian goddess of fertility, love and war, in her temple at Uruk temple prostitution was the accepted form of worship: by engaging in illicit sexual behavior with the prostitutes the paganist was in union with the mystical mother goddess. Ishtar represented the evening and morning stars. The chief seat of Ishtar worship was the city of Erech, where prostitution was practiced in her name, and she was served by immoral rights of both men and women. The worship of Ishtar migrated to the land of Canaan where she was known as Ashtoreth, she was the female counterpart of Baal. Ashtoreth came to be regarded as the consort of Baal, and took the place of the solar moon goddess of Babylon. Ashtaroth was worshipped under the name of Atar-Gatis, who was a worshipped as a woman with the tail of a fish. Elsewhere the dove was the sacred symbol of Ashtaroth. It is important we understand that the immoral religious worship of Ishtar of Babylon migrated to Canaan (Deut 23:18).

Ashtoreth was also known by the names of Anath (sister and spouse of Baal), Astarte, and Asherah. According to Babylonian myth, Nimrod married his mother, who was named Semiramis. Since the Babylonian people deified Nimrod, then it would be logical for Semiramis to be made a goddess and to be worshipped as mother goddess of ancient Babylonia. Semiramis became known as Ishtar, and as was previously stated, she was the goddess of sex and war. Sex mainly in its sensuous aspect as lust, and war in its evil aspect of violence and murder.

Anath was given the epithet of "Virgin" and "the Holy One" (qudshu) in her role as the SACRED PROSTITUTE. The goddess was called Qudshu, "the Holiness," the sacred prostitute of both sexes. The male prostitutes consecrated to the cult of the Qudshu were called qadesh, usually translated Sodomites (Deut 23:18). The feminine qedeshah is also found (Deut 23:18 Hos 4:14). The worship of the sacred prostitute spread to Egypt were the idol was called Antart, and later in Syria this goddess was referred to as Anat-Ashtart. The worship of this goddess spread to Greece were she was called Artemis, and eventually her worship spread to Rome where she was known as Diana. The sacred prostitute was also known as Rhea/ Cybele to the Babylonians, but she was also known as Venus to the Romans. It is the worship of the mother goddess, the sacred prostitute that identifies the political route of paganism. In simple terms, Babylonia was the paganistic root of all idolatrous religion. 4

MARDOCK

The pagan god Mardock is also known by the names of Merodack and Marduk; he was the city of god of Babylon where his temple was called E-sagila (lofty house) and his tower that was called E-teme-nanki (house of the foundation of heaven and earth) are located. According to Babylonian myths Mardock was married to Sarpanitu (Semiramis). After Hammurabi made Babylon the chief city of Babylonia its god rapidly increased in importance until he absorbed the attributes of the earlier gods and displaced them in the great myths. His proper name in later periods was displaced by the appellative Belu "lord", so that finally he was spoken of as Bel. 5

The worship of Bel migrated to Canaan where his name was changed to Baal. Baal stood as the supreme god while Ashtoreth (Ishtar) stood at his side. The name Baal is a common Canaanite word for "Master or Lord" . The inhabitants of Canaan were addicted to Baal worship which was conducted in temples and outdoor fields usually on hilltops called "high places". The cult included animal sacrifice, ritualistic meals, licentious dances, and even the hideous practice of human sacrifice that usually involved their children being cast into fire in a fashion similar to Molech. High places had chambers for sacred prostitution by male prostitutes (kedishim) and sacred harlots (kedeshoth) (1Kings 14:23-24; 2Kings 23:7) 6

NIMROD AND SEMIRAMIS

Up to this point I have presented the basic outlines of the two supreme deities worshipped by the Babylonians; now let me correlate this information with one central character referred to in the Bible as the engineer of the Tower of Babel. According to the Bible the founder of Babylon was Nimrod, who was known to the Babylonians as Merodach. In the brief survey presented on the god Mardock, this god was also known as Merodach. Now that this fact is known then we should realize that the Babylonians elevated Nimrod to the status of a local god. He was worshipped by his countrymen because of his great strength and stature, and because he built the Tower of Babel in defiance of the God of Noah: only a god could defy another god. Now we have explained how the Babylonian god Mardock came into existence, but why did the Babylonians worship the goddess Ishtar?

According to archeology the Chaldean Mysteries can be traced back to the days of Queen Semiramis, who lived only a few centuries after the flood, and who is known to have impressed upon the people of Babylon the image of her own depraved and polluted mind. The beautiful but abandoned queen was not only herself a paragon of unbridled lust and licentiousness, but in the Mysteries which she had a chief hand in forming, she was worshipped as Rhea, the great Mother of the gods. The Babylonians in their popular religion, supremely worshipped a Goddess Mother and a Son who was represented in pictures and images as an infant or child in his mother's arms. From Babylon this worship of the Mother and Child spread to the ends of the earth. In Egypt, the Mother and Child were worshipped under the names of Isis and Osiris. In India, even to this day, as Isi and Iswara; in Asia, as Cybele and Deoius; in Pagan Rome as Fortuna and Jupiter-puer; in Greece, as Ceres, the Great Mother, with the babe at her breast, or as Irene, the goddess of peace, with the boy Plutus in her arms; and even in Tibet, in China, and Japan, the Jesuit missionaries were astonished to find the counterpart of Madonna and her child. 7

Baal or Belus was the name of the great male divinity of Babylon, so the female divinity was called Beltis. This name has been found in Nineveh applied to the "Mother of the gods". Belus and Beltis are the titles of the great Babylonian god and goddess. The Greek Belus was associated with Baal, his female counterpart would be called Baalti, which is translated "My Lady", in Latin "Mea Domina" and in Italian the title came to be called "Madonna". Is it possible that the worship of Mary, the Mother of God, the Queen of heaven, in the Catholic church is in fact the worship of Beltis or Baalti, which in fact is Ishtar of the Babylonians? 8

Archeological records indicates that the Babylonian mother so widely worshipped was Semiramis: she derived derived all her glory and fame from her son. In Scripture her son is named Tammuz (Eze 8:14). Tammuz, who is worshipped in his mother's arms, is in fact the husband and son of Semiramis. Another name for Tammuz was Ninus, who was the biblical Nimrod. This confusion of relationship is also recorded in Egyptian antiquity: Isis - the Babylonian Ishtar - is identified as the mother and the wife of Osiris - the Babylonian Merdock or Bel. This confusion is also recorded in the Indian mysteries; the god Iswara is represented as the babe as the breast of his own wife Isi, or Parvati. 9a

The religion of Babylon was primarily the worship of the Mother Goddess. In this religion 6 was considered the number which symbolized sexual ecstasy in which participants achieved union with the divine universe and with the Mother Goddess. 666 was the magical number of the Goddess Ishtar, also called "..Triple Aphrodite..", because in her personage was the unholy trinity of the Mother-Father-Son. 10

(Thought to Consider) Solomon, a wise and great king, failed God in his old age by taking young brides from different nations. These women lured Solomon into Idolatry: it is logical to assume that these women worshipped the Mother Goddess. As a part of this pagan worship, Solomon required the priests of the Temple to pay him 666 talents of gold per year (1Kings 10:14)

According to Alice Bailey "The symbology of VIRGO concerns the goal of the evolutionary process, which is to shield, nurture, and finally reveal the hidden spiritual reality." According to New Age astrology, Virgo is represented by a triangle, and Virgo is the sixth sign, therefore Virgo is connected with 666. 11

In Greece, Tammuz's title was known as Bacchus "The Lamented one". The Greek god Bacchus was the deity of revelry and drunkenness. Those who worshipped Bacchus, in order to purify their souls from the corruption of sin, would participate in drunken orgies. It is important we remember this fact because John understood that mystical Babylon would be the great city that would make all nations drink the wine of her fornication. The god worshipped as the child in the arms of the great Mother of Greece is known as Dionysus, Bacchus, or Iacchus: the ancient historian Herodotus identified Bacchus with the Egyptian god Osiris. The mystery ceremonies associated with Bacchus and Osiris are the same, the sexual, drunken orgies and the illicit rites that celebrate the wanderings of Ceres and Isis are nearly identical, their only difference is the name. 9b

According to the historian Josephus, Nimrod was the one who excited the people to rebel against God. He persuaded them not to recognize God as the source of their happiness, but their good fortune should be attributed to their own strength and courage. He also gradually changed their government in to tyranny; seeing no other way of turning men from the fear of God, but to bring them into a constant dependence upon his power. In order to gain the affections of the people Nimrod taught them to yield to their sexual lust and engage in all forms of fornication as a form of pagan worship. This action cause him to be highly esteemed, because the people could be free from the moral code of God. 12

The Bible is completely silent concerning the death of Nimrod. In order for us to understand how he died, and how his immoral religion developed form we must look to the ancient Babylonian and Egyptian myths. According to the record of antiquity Nimrod died a violent death. The Greek philosopher Plato regarded Tammuz and Adonis as being Osiris (Nimrod) in Egyptian myths. The Persian Paschal Chronicles confirm the fact that Nimrod was deified after his death by the name of Orion and placed among the stars. According to Maimonides, the Babylonian historian, Thammuz went into Egypt and preached his doctrine that all nations should worship the seven stars and the twelve signs of the Zodiac. The "evil king" who was identified as Sem was so offended by this blatant blasphemy that he had Thammuz drawn and quartered into twelve pieces. Sem sent the twelve pieces to different capitals as a warning against Nimrod's doctrine. The evidence extracted from the Egyptian record strongly implies that Sem was in fact Shem, a son of Noah, who lived 502 years after the flood. This type of execution inflicted on one so mighty as Nimrod caused his disciples to hide his doctrine in secret mysteries. In these Mysteries, under the seal of secrecy, the idolatry of Nimrod was revealed to the initiates. 13

The death of Nimrod dramatically effected the political position of Semiramis, who stood in political prominence because of the position of her son and husband. How could she live in the pomp and pride she once knew now that Nimrod was dead? In life, her husband had been honored as a hero; in death she would have him worshipped as a god. Now that her son was considered a god she must be worshipped also as the mother of god. The worship of Ishtar is born, the sacred prostitute, the great mother goddess would be magnified through secret sexual ceremonies. 14

According to Archeological evidence the first occupants of the Tigris/Euphrates river region were the Sumerians. It would be logical to assume that Nimrod was associated with these people. The conquest of the Sumerians by the Semites and the Aryans about 1500 BC. resulted in Nimrod's secret idolatrous religion being carried like an infectious disease to the entire Fertile Crescent region. In the middle of the second millennium BC, the invading Aryan tribes fought their way across the Indus and Ganges plains of India resulting in the religion of ancient Babylon being planted in this region also. The Aryans brought to India their language and traditions, these two elements profoundly influenced their older religions. The Aryan language developed within India into what we call Sanskrit - a parallel of Greek, Latin and other Indo European languages. The infusion of Babylonian religious thinking caused the Indian people to absorb Babylonian doctrine. India proved to be a fertile ground for the hidden mysteries of ancient Babylon; for thousands of years Nimrod's idolatrous religion grew, and, with minor variations, it is known today as Hinduism. India has westernized their form of Hinduism and it is being offered to the world as the New Age Movement. The New Age doctrine that teaches that humanity has no need for one true God, but all men can be their own god is the contemptuous belief that destroyed Nimrod. 15

Fornication was the authorized form of worship in the fertility cults of the Babylonian mysteries. It was commonly believed that the fertility of the earth was the direct result of Baal (Mardock) and his consort Baalath (Ishtar) engaging in sexual intercourse. Through sexual ceremonies an agricultural society could swing into the rhythms of agriculture and reinforce the fertile rhythms of nature through their sympathetic and imitative magic. 16

John the Revelator realized that the mystical great city of Babylon will fall from its pristine pedestal, because it will make all nations drink the wine of her fornication. History records that the great city state of Babylon was tainted and corrupt with unbridled lust and fornication, shrouded in the religious deception of union with the rhythmic cycles of nature. Revelation 14:8 is the first scriptural reference that identifies the great city of the Antichrist with ancient Babylon. God does not use symbols in a foolish manner: clearly the political arena of the beast will be an unique expression of the Babylonian spirit. The founder of Babylon stood in defiance to God, blasphemed His name and person, and diligently sought to set his subjects free from the God's moral restraints. The Antichrist will be a final manifestation of the defiant spirit of Nimrod; fornication and unbridled lust will be some of the tools used by the son of perdition to corrupt and destroy the basic institutions of marriage and family. Nimrod presented himself as a god man, the Antichrist will do the same; Nimrod demanded worship, the Beast will demand worship also. The worship of the great Mother goddess will be ushered in by westernized Hinduism in the form of the New Age religion. Truly Babylon will rise again, but her unbridled lust and fornication will decay her political foundation as it did in the past, and she will fall. The nations of the earth will become drunk on the wine of Babylon's immoral sin: the revelry and drunkenness of Bacchus will be the gross darkness that shrouds the earth.

Another point to consider is the historical fact that the OCCULT emanates from pantheism. For example, the practice of witchcraft invokes the occultic forces of nature, this black art seeks to manipulate the laws of nature. Contrary to popular belief, most witches do not believe in Satan; nor do they see themselves as practicing satanic rituals. Most witches and sorcerers believe that witchcraft consists merely in manipulating the forces of nature, or the god-force. No matter how we slice it, pantheism is the counterfeit religion authored by Satan. Although direct Satan worship (Satanism) has drawn some followers, most people will not participate in it because of its blatantly evil overtones. Pantheism is more subtle, it appeals to the masses because it offers spiritual searchings for God, but it doesn't demand moral accountability. 17

The Babylonian secret mysteries spread to other geographical regions through war and conquest; for example, the Aryian conquest of the Sumerians in 1500 BC caused the secret mysteries to spread to the Indus Valley in India. With minor modifications the secret mysteries of Babylon still flourish in India, they are known as Hinduism. The conquests of Egypt by the Hyksos (1720-1550 BC), the conquest of the Mesopotamian kingdoms by the Hittites (1400-1200 BC), the conquests of the Egyptians (1570-1150 BC), the conquests of Philip and Alexander of Macedonia (350 BC) - the Greeks, and the early Roman conquests (44 BC) all caused these same secret mysteries to be rooted around the globe. 18

KABBALISM

The Kabbalah is an ORAL OCCULT TRADITION that appears to have its root in the Babylonian captivity of the nation of Israel; but it took more of a formal record at the beginning of the Christian era. Since the Kabbalah is an oral tradition it is historically difficult to pin-point the exact source and creation of this esoteric doctrine, but it is taught by the kabbalists that the Patriarch Abraham was its source. This cannot be true since much of their doctrine is Babylonian and Egyptian in nature. History seems to indicate that the oral tradition began to take written form between the 3rd and 6th century AD. Since the doctrines taught by the Kabbalists have a typical Babylonian flavor it would be logical to assume that the first Babylonian captivity would be the source. The oral traditions were compiled by Moses de Leon in 1290 AD in to the Kabbalah as we know it today.

Kabbalism was merely a unique version of the ancient mysteries specifically designed to deceive God's chosen people. Unlike the other mysteries, its teachings dealt specifically with Israel, offering counter-explanations to the revelations of the prophets, complete with a cleverly disguised occult interpretation of the history of Israel. Moses, for example, rather than being the righteous prophet of God who lead the people out of Egypt, was made out to be an occult figure whose purpose was to initiate the Israelites into the enlightened and more advanced teachings of Egypt. 19

The kabbalists developed distinctive doctrines of creation and redemption. Their doctrine of creation was built on a theory of emanations and asserted that the world derived from the transcendent and unknowable God (En Soph) through a series of increasingly material manifestations (sephirot). The manifestations were repeated, in some versions of Kabbalah, in four interlocking series or "worlds": emanation (atzilut). creation (beriah), formation (yetzirah), and action or making (assiyah). By the sin of Adam and the later sins of humankind, the immanent aspect of God, or the Shekhinah (divine presence), was exiled in the final sephirah, malkhut (kingdom). The sexual imagery of the Kabbalah treats Shekhinah (the word is feminine in gender) as the female aspect of divinity; it symbolically expresses the idea of the restoration of harmony (tikkun) as the reunion of the male and female aspects of the divine, that is, as the reunion of divine transcendence and immanence. 20

Simply stated, the Kabbalah compromised the truth faith of the Old Testament with the ancient mysteries of Babylon and Egypt. The final product was a perverted esoteric doctrine that would be revealed only to the initiated into its secret society.

GNOSTICISM

The occultic traditions of the Kabbalah inspired a young Greek Christian by the name of Simon Magus, who unquestionably adulterated Christianity with these pantheistic, occult traditions. Four basic philosophies formulated the doctrinal foundation of Gnosticism, they are PLATONISM, ZOROASTRIANISM of Persia (Mithraism), the Mysteries of BABYLON, and BUDDHISM of India (the Buddhism influence is in question, but the three other religions are not). 21

The Gnostics accepted the Greek idea of a radical dualism between God (spirit) and the world (matter). According to their world view, the created order was evil, inferior, and opposed to the good. God may have created the first order, but each successive order was the work of anti-gods, archons, or a demiurge (a subordinate deity). The Gnostics believed that the earth is surrounded by a number of cosmic spheres (usually seven) which separate man from God. These spheres are ruled by archons (spiritual principalities and powers) who guard their spheres by barring the souls who are seeking to ascend from the realm of darkness and captivity which is below to the realm of light which is above. The Gnostics also taught that man is composed of body, soul, and spirit. Since the body and the soul are part of man's earthly existence, they are evil. Enclosed in the soul, however, is the spirit, the only divine substance of man. This "spirit" is asleep and ignorant; it needs to be awakened and liberated by knowledge. According to the Gnostics, the aim of salvation is for the spirit to be awakened by knowledge so the inner man can be released from his earthly dungeon and return to the realm of light where the soul becomes reunited with God. As the soul ascends, however, it needs to penetrate the cosmic spheres which separate it from its heavenly destiny. This, too, is accomplished by knowledge. One must understand certain formulas which are revealed only to the initiated. Ethical behavior among the Gnostics varied considerably. Some sought to separate themselves from all evil matter in order to avoid contamination. Paul may be opposing such a view in <1 Timothy 4:1-5>. For other Gnostics, ethical life took the form of libertinism. For them knowledge meant freedom to participate in all sorts of indulgences. Many reasoned that since they had received divine knowledge and were truly informed as to their divine nature, it didn't matter how they lived. Such an attitude is a misunderstanding of the gospel. Paul, on a number of occasions, reminded his readers that they were saved from sin to holiness. They were not to have an attitude of indifference toward the law. They had died to sin in their baptism into Christ <Rom. 6:1-11> and so were to walk "in newness of life." John reminded the Christians that once they had been saved they were not to continue living in sin <1 John 3:4-10>. These Gnostic teachings also had a disruptive effect on fellowship in the church. Those who were "enlightened" thought of themselves as being superior to those who did not have such knowledge. Divisions arose between the spiritual and the fleshly. This attitude of superiority is severely condemned in the New Testament. Christians are "one body" <1 Corinthians 12> who should love one another <1 Corinthians 13; 1 John>. Spiritual gifts are for the Christian community rather than individual use; they should promote humility rather than pride (1 Corinthians 12--14; Eph. 4:11-16). 22

Gnosticism flourished through the centuries through various offshoots such as the Manicheans of the third century, the Euchites of the fourth century, the Paulicians of the seventh century, and the Bogomils of the ninth century. It must be reiterated that Gnosticism is a Christianized form of the secret ancient mysteries; the doctrines of this religious philosophy can be traced back to the occultic mysteries of ancient Babylon through the Kabbalah, through the Persian religions, and through Platonism which was influenced by Babylonian myth. The influence of Gnosticism can not be understated; nearly all the secret societies of today can be traced back to this pantheistic system. In certain Gnostic systems Sophia (Greek for Wisdom), the Great Mother was the primary figure of their doctrine. She was regarded as the goddess of Heaven and the mother of the stars. The Gnostic doctrine of Sophia, the Great Mother confirms the association with the ancient mysteries, she was also worshipped by the names of Aphrodite, Astarte, Cybele, Ishtar, and Isis. 23

We think that the ancient gnostic doctrines of the great mother goddess Sophia died in the ashes and rubble of fallen Rome. This is not the case, the doctrines of Sophia have inspired considerable controversy in the Methodist and Presbyterian denominations. One of the founding pastors of this growing movement is the Rev. Delores Williams. She made this statement concerning the basic doctrines of the Christian faith, "I don't think we need a theory of atonement at all, I don't think we need folks hanging on crosses and blood dripping and weird stuff." How did this doctrine arise again today? What is its source? When you read about the roots of the New Age movement these questions will be answered. 90

KNIGHTS TEMPLARS

The death of Constantine caused serious political injury to the Boshipric of Rome. The Eastern Orthodox Church of Constantinople grew in power and influence, because the Roman empire split between east and west. In order to bolster the western political position, the Roman Biship made a pact with Clovis, the grandson of Merovee, king of the Franks. Pope Gregory, the Great conferred on Clovis the name of the "New Constantine," and gave him authority to regulate the western Christian empire. The term "The Holy Roman Empire" was not offically used until 962. The tombs of the Merovingian family clearly indicate that they were strongly influenced by the Gnostic heresy. The Merovingian bloodline became the royal line of ascent to the thrones of Europe during the Dark Ages. 24

The Crusades played an important part in the promotion of the Merovingian bloodline. Many of the Crusaders were French who went to Palestine to liberated the Holy Land from the Moslems. By 1061 AD., the Catholic Crusades had conquered the city of Jerusalem and established Godfroi de Bouillon (of the Merovingian bloodline) on the throne of Jerusalem. Claiming to be of the lineage of David, Godfroi de Bouillon organized a secret society called the Order de Sion - today it is called Priory de Sion. In the years that followed, Godfroi de Bouillon and his secret group laid plains for a front organization to carry out their goals. In 1118, the Knights Templar was organized with Baudouin, the brother of Godfroi de Bouillon, its first Grand Master. They adopted the Merovingian birthmark as their emblem - a red cross. 25

The mission of the Knights Templar was to protect the pilgrims coming to worship in Jerusalem. This pseudo-religious order established offices in all the Christian countries to recruit men for the armies, and to protect the funds for the pilgrims. The pilgrims gave donations to the Templars in exchange for protection and escort to Jerusalem - these organizations existed with tax exempt status. The original nine Knights pledged themselves to be subject only to the pope, they would not recognize no other political or ecclesiastical authority. Upon their arrival in Jerusalem they were provided living quarters in the palace of King Baudouin on the Temple site, and the became known as the "poor knights of the Temple".

Though there is no concrete historical proof, it is believed that they spent the next nine years digging - digging up the buried treasure of the ancient Jewish Temple. In 1953 a copper scroll was found in a cave near the Dead Sea which told of a fabulous Temple treasure - estimated at more than 138 tons of gold and silver which had been buried by the Jewish priesthood in 64 locations before the Romans destroyed the Temple in 70 AD. 24 of those hordes were buried under the Temple mount. It is believed that the Knights Templar plundered the treasure of the Temple and took it back to Europe. After nine years in Jerusalem, the Templars returned to Europe wealthy beyond belief. 26

The Knights Templars were probable corrupt from the beginning. But whether the order started our degenerate or became this way later, it is certain that the Templars had, during their exploits in the Middle East, become strongly influenced by both the Gnostics and the Assassins (a ruthless Arabic military order). It is a fact that several of the founders of the Knights Templars were initiates in the sect of the Assassins. The Templars, while adopting the religious beliefs of the Gnostics, received many of their organizational and political traits from the Assassins. The Templars represented the first wide scale attempt to organize and mobilize the forces of occultism for the purpose of gaining control of the world. 27

Edith Starr Miller, author of Occult Theocrasy, also confirms the historical fact that the Knights Templars embraced Gnosticism and joined the secret sect of the Assassins. Miller also stated that some members of the order practiced Phallicism (worship of the generative powers of nature as represented by the phallus - the male sex organ) and Satanism. The group also was known to venerate "The Baphomet," the idol of the Luciferians. Historical records also indicate that the crime of Sodomy was a rite of Templar initiation. (p. 144)

In 1128 the Order was provided special protection from the Pope. Membership in the Templars was reserved initially to Nobles, it was a military, religious order. After the Pope sanctioned the order its ranks were opened to other men who could further the aims of the order. The greed for power and wealth soon caused the order to break ties with the Roman Pope. The Crusades were extremely profitable for the order, they instituted an international banking system across Europe. The resources of the Templar's banks caused them to gain considerable political power, because they became the financiers of kings and governments; in simple terms, they controlled the purse strings of medieval Europe. The secret agenda of this Order became their official government policy, the power of their gold allowed them to dictate law. The power of their wealth caused the Templars to become an arrogant organization, they refused to recognize any political authority. The Templars also invented an invoice system that would allow them to transfer gold from one bank or city to another by writing a note on a piece of paper: today we call this invoice system check writing.

The Knights Templar wore white uniforms, each having a large red cross on the mantle. Legends were told of their exploits. The professed themselves to be the guardians of the Holy Grail, the fictious cup from which Jesus drank at the last supper, and of the Grail family, the bloodline of the Magdalene. In 1188 there was a split between the Ordre de Sion and the Knights Templar. Only the year before the Knights lost a battle over Jerusalem and their Grand Master was accused of treason. 28

In 1303, King Philip IV of France, sorely in need of money, engineered a strategy to confiscate the treasure of the Templars. He engineered the kidnapping and death of Pope Boniface VIII; history implies that Philip murdered Pope Benedict XI, his successor, by poison. In 1305 King Philip managed to secure the election of a French candidate to the Vatican papal throne, the Archbishop of Bordeaux. The new pope took the papal name of Clement V, he, for all intent, was a political puppet of Philip. History records the fact that Clement never went to Rome, instead he established his residency at Avignon in South France. Two reasons motivated this decision, first, he was reluctant to leave his native land, and second, King Philip would not allow him to leave. The only notable thing Clement did in church history was to approve Philip's plan to destroy the Templars

On October 13, 1307, all the Templars in France were arrested - including their Grand Master, Jacques de Molay. The king also tried to locate the treasure of the Templars, but the treasure could not be found. In March, 1314 AD., Jacques de Molay, the Grand Master of the Knights Templar, and Geoffrey de Charney (owner of the shroud, today call the Shroud of Turin) were burned at the stake. From that point on, the Knights seemed to vanish from the stage of history. King Philip ordered the Templar's castle seized. The king's men surprised the knights, broke into their castle at Paris, arrested them, and searched the place in hopes of finding their magnificent treasure. They did not find the treasure, but they did find a large silver bust in the shape of a woman's head. It was hinged on top, and inside were two head bones wrapped in a cloth of white linen, with another red cloth around it. The bones were those of a rather small woman. According to Templar legend it was believed the skeletal remains belonged to Mary Magdalene, and they worshipped them. The Templar worship of Mary Magdalene is linked with the Egyptian goddess of fertility, Isis, whose Babylonian name was Ishtar. 29

The French Templars found a refuge in Scotland, where the group maintained itself as a coherent body for at least the next 400 years, They eventually developed into an organization called the Scottish Rite. By 1789 the legends surrounding the ancient Knights Templar pictured them as illumined alchemists, magi, and sages; they were known for their occultic practices. Today we know this organization as the Scottish Rite, Free Masons. 30

The Templars like all other secret societies had two doctrines; one reserved for the masters, and the other presented to the public. Do not be deceived by the apparent benevolence of secret societies, nearly all have this dual doctrinal deception. Unless the initiate is allowed into the inner circle the real objects and mission of the society will not be known.

PRIORY OF SION

For nearly eighty nine years (1099 - 1188) the Order of the Knights Templar was a front organization for a more secretive group known as the Priory of Sion, whose real purpose was to capture the wealth of the world, establishing their own world government, and introduce a Merovingian king to sit upon a throne in Jerusalem. They are said to be the true possessors of the Temple treasury and the behind-the-scenes controllers of the world's currencies. 31

In 1979 Mr. Pierre Plantard de Saint-Clair, the present Secretary General of the Priory of Sion, was interviewed in Paris, France by reporters from the BBC. When asked the question, "Does the Priory of Sion possess the treasures of the ancient Jewish Temple?", he said "Yes." He added, "They will be returned to Jerusalem when the time is right." Pierre Plantard is himself a descendant of the Merovingian bloodline. 32

In 1903 the Russian Czar was presented with a highly controversial document called the "Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion." The publisher of the manuscript, a Russian Orthodox priest named Sergei Nilus, claimed that it was the work of a Jewish conspiracy to take over the governments of the world. The Czar declared the documents to be an outrageous fabrication and ordered all copies destroyed. However, some copies survived and in the following years it was used by a great many anti-Semitics as convincing proof of an international Jewish conspiracy. In 1919 it was distributed to troops of the White Russian army. Over the next two years some 60,000 Jews were massacred. They were blamed for the 1917 Russian revolution.

Adolf Hitler even used the "Protocols" to fuel his own fanatical prejudices which led to the murder of six million Jews. In the "Protocols" the so-called Learned Elders of Zion speak of a Masonic kingdom and of a king of the blood of Zion who will preside over the world kingdom. It asserts that the future king will be of the dynastic roots of King David. The "Protocols" also say that the king of the Jews will be the real pope and the patriarch of an international church. It concludes in a most cryptic fashion, "Certain members of the seed of David will prepare the kings and their heirs...Only the king and the three who stood sponsor for him will know what is coming. It has been suggested that the "Protocols" are the work of the ancient Priory of Sion. 33

These writings sound like the secret plans of several secret political societies (i.e. Priory of Sion, Knights Templar, Rosicrucians, the Illuminati, the Council on Foreign Relations, the New Age movement). It is interesting to note that the "Protocols" can be traced back to the Priory of Sion.

1. There was a secret order behind the Knights Templar, which created the Templars as its military and administrative arm. This order functioned under the name of the Prieure de Sion (Priory of Sion)

2. Though the Knights Templar were thought to be destroyed and dissolved between 1307 and 1314, the Priory of Sion has continued to function through the centuries. It has orchestrated certain critical events in Western history.

3. The Priory of Sion exists today and is still operative. It plays an influential role in high-level international affairs as well as in the domestic affairs of certain European countries.

4. The avowed objective of the Priory of Sion is the restoration of the Merovingian dynasty and bloodline to the thrones of certain European nations. The restoration of the rule of the Merovingians is considered justifiable, both legally and morally. 34

The Order of Sion was founded in 1099 by Godfroi de Bouillon just after his conquest of Jerusalem. Its official headquarters was the Abbey of Notre Dame du Mount de Sion. Godfroi was offered the title "King of Jerusalem", but declined, asking to be known only as the "Defender of the Holy Sepulcher." Godfroi was of Merovingian blood, directly descended from Dagobert II. He was a king without a kingdom, until he became ruler of the most coveted kingdom in the world - Jerusalem and the Holy Land. 35

In 1118 the Knights Templar were organized by Hugues de Payen, perhaps as the order of Sion's military and administrative arm. In 1188 a formal separation occurred between the institutions, commonly referred to as the "cutting of the elm." At that time, the Order of Sion modified its name to the Prieure (Priory) of Sion. As a subtitle, the name "Ormus" was adopted. According to esoteric teaching, Ormus was the name of an Egyptian sage and mystic, a Gnostic "adept" of Alexandria.....In AD. 46, he and six of his followers were supposedly converted to a form of Christianity....From this conversion a new sect or order is said to have been born, which fused the tenets of early Christianity with the teachings of other, even older mystery schools. Ormus and his new initiates took as their identifying symbol, a red, or rose colored cross. As already discussed, the red cross on a white tunic had already been adopted as the symbol of the Knights Templar. From this, a second subtitle adopted by the Priory of Sion in 1188 came to be known as the Rose-Croix, or Rosicrucians. 36

One of the first Grand Masters of the Priory of Sion, Guillaume de Gisors (1266-1307), was said to have organized the body into an Hermetic Freemasonry. Hermetic thought, esoteric traditions and involvement in secret societies apparently began to control the Grand Masters of the organization from that time forward. The meaning of Hermetic indicates an involvement in the mystical, magical or occult sciences. The word evolved from the Greek god, Hermes, who was called Mercury by the Romans. He was considered to be the god of sciences, eloquence and cunning, and also the guide of departed souls to Hades. The Priory of Sion were the "king makers" from Godfroi's reign forward, and provided the connection between his family and the lineage of royalty though Rudolf I of Habsburd to the present, which includes the current House of Habsburg. The Habsburg dynasty, which ruled the Holy Roman Empire since the 13th century, is the direct lineage of the Merovingian bloodline. 37

ROSICRUCIANS

History is vague concerning the surviving Templars, but it is believed that they merged with little known secret societies in order to remain out of the public eye. In the early 1600's, nearly 300 years after the abolishment of the Templars, the decision was made to resurface in society. The question that haunted the hidden leadership was this; would the general public respond in a favorable fashion to their occultic mysteries? In order to answer this question the surviving Templars published their esoteric history in a document called "Fama Fraternitatis." The document was an allegory centered around a mystical character called Christian Rosenkreuz. According to the allegory, Rosenkreuz traveled to Syria and Egypt to study the occult. After he was trained in the esoteric occultic mysteries, Rosenkreuz returned to Europe to teach the masses his new found doctrines. The allegory continues; Rosenkreuz is rejected, therefore he returned home to Germany where he hope to establish a society built on the secret mysteries of Egypt. According to Mackey's Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, the allegory was accepted as truth, and the invisible society of Rosenkreuz was sought for by many who desired his teachings. Eventually the Templars responded to the searching for the mysteries of Rosenkreuz, and the secret society of the Rosicrucians was born.

Rosicrucianism is also called the Ancient Mystical Order of the Rosy Cross. The color of the cross was associated with the cross shaped birthmark on the chest of the 5th century king of the Franks, by the name of Merovee. It is important to remember that the Knights Templar also used the symbol of a Rose Cross. 38

As in other Mystery Cults, the Rosicrucians also have orders. "Members who attain and complete the psychic instruction of the ninth degree may enter the Illuminati, which is a higher organization of the order wherein the worthy members continued to carry on specialized work and studies under the direction of the imperator of their jurisdiction and the personal cosmic masters. Members cannot ask for admission to the Illuminati, but must wait until they have been found ready and are invited in this additional work." 39

Rosicrucianism became the rebirth of Templar occultic doctrines and practices. The Templars now could go public with their antichristian objectives and goals, but the Templars did not just use the Rosicrucians to accomplish their goals, they also blended with the stone cutters guild, and infected them with their esoteric rights and ceremonies.

FREEMASONRY

It wasn't long before the Templars realized that the Rosicrucians did not have the public exposure to establish their concept of a New World Order. The Templars needed to enlist the support of a larger group of people. In order to accomplish this part of their plan they merged with the stone masons guild of Europe. This action legitimized their occultic strategy with the outer appearance of a benevolent organization endeavoring to do good works.

We should not forget that the stone masons union was initially comprised of stone masons, therefore they were referred to as the Operative Masons. The transition from the operative masons to the Speculative Masons took several decades. This slow absorption of the masons guild began around 1640, and it culminated with the organization of the first Grand Lodge in 1717 in London. The Templars now had control of the masons guild, it was free to allow the good works of the guild to be its public image, while the inner circle, the Adepts were trained in the occultic vision and purpose of the Templars.

There are two Masonic systems in existence today, they are called "The York Rite" and "The Scottish Rite". The York Rite was organized in the late 18th century and is called "Capitular," the association between the masons and the Knights Templar is most clearly evident in this organization; in fact the final step of initiation is called "Chivalric," to the members it is called "Knights Templar" (three orders). The Scottish Rite system is divided into 33 degrees of initiation; this society was organized in 1801. The Scottish Rite is also infiltrated by the esoteric doctrines of the Templars, they have an order called "The Holy Royal Arch Knight Templar Priests"; also the Scottish Rite has another order referred to as "The Masonic Rosicrucian Society". 40

ILLUMINATI

The Illuminati was organized on May 1, 1776, by Adam Weishaupt, a former Jesuit, lawyer, and professor at Ingolstadt University in Bavaria. The aim of his secret organization was to replace Christianity with a religion of "reason" (another word for humanism). Their ultimate goal was to replace all national governments with a single world government. According to some historical evidence, the Illuminati helped forment the French revolution. The conspirators engineered the fall of the monarchy and the rise of Napoleon. The Illuminati also influenced the American revolution and had hopes to use the Colonies as a springboard for world conquest. It is reported in American history that Benjamin Franklin was a Rosicrucian. Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and George Washington were Masons. George Washington warned the Masonic Lodge in America of the dangers of the Illuminati, while Thomas Jefferson and John Adams later disagreed over the use of the Masonic Lodge by the Illuminati. John Adams, who is reported to have been the founder of the Masonic Lodges in New England, accused Jefferson of using the lodges for subversive Illuminati purposes. 41

The Masonic historian, Albert G. Mackey, describes the Illuminati as a secret society established within the Mason organization. Mackey stated that Weishaupt "...is celebrated in the history of Masonry as the founder of the Order of the Illuminati of Bavaria....His ambition was, I think, a virtuous one; that failed was his, and perhaps the world's misfortune." Mackey's estimation of Weishaupt is also confirmed by H.L. Haywood, another esteemed Mason historian, who included a biographical sketch of Weishaupt in his book entitled Famous Masons and Masonic Presidents.

The Encyclopedia Britannica defines the Illuminati as such, "...a short lived movement ... founded on May Day (May 1) 1776, by Adam Weishaupt ... a former Jesuit. The members of this secret society called themselves Perfectibilists. Their founder's aim was to replace Christianity by a religion of reason, as later did the revolutionaries of France ... From 1778 onwards, they began to make contact with various Masonic loges, where, under the impulse of A. [Baron Von] Knigge, one of their chief converts, they often managed to gain a commanding position. 42

In 1771, a merchant named Kolmer returned from Egypt to Europe. He was seeking converts to a so-called "Secret Doctrine," based on Manichaeanism (religious doctrine preached by the Persian sage Manes in the 3rd century AD. Manes proclaimed himself to be the last and greatest prophet of God in a succession that included Buddha, Zoroaster, and Jesus) - which he had learned in the East. On his way to France, he stopped in Malta, where he nearly brought about an insurrection among the people, and was driven from the island by the Knights of Malta. The following year, he met Adam Weishaupt on a tour in Germany. Over the next 5 years, he initiated Weishaupt into the mysteries of his Secret Doctrine. The concepts taught to Weishaupt represented the same Secret Doctrine held by the Rosicrucianism, Hitler's Nazi movement, the Mormon Church, the Masonic Lodge, and the modern day New Age Movement. Weishaupt adopted an insignia to identify with the name, beginning, beliefs, and goals of the Illuminati. It was the emblem of the All-Seeing-Eye, which was drawn in ancient times as a circle with a dot in the middle. The emblem of the Illuminati (an all seeing eye) has been traced back to the mystery schools of secret wisdom in ancient Egypt during the 18th Dynasty: to the reign of Pharaoh Amenhotp IV (1350 BC.). It was probably brought into Egypt by the children of Ham after the tower of Babel debacle. The Hamites were among those who designed the tower as a pyramid-like structure and migrated into Egypt after the confusion of tongues. They built the pyramid of Gizeh, another Tower of Babel. 43

The political ideology of a new world order and a one world government can be traced back to the organization of the ILLUMINATI on May 1, 1776 - this is the reason why May day was a major holiday for the communists. The founder the Order of the Illuminati was Professor Adam Weishaupt. The goal of this secret society was to establish a new world order based on the overthrow of Civil government, the church, private property, and the elevation to world leadership of a group of hand-picked "ADEPTS" or "ILLUMINATED ONES". Weishaupt chose as his vehicle for infiltration and takeover the established continental Order of Freemasons. The Illuminati surfaced again in the 1800's through secret revolutionary societies. These societies commissioned the writings of their militant manifesto to CARL MARX and FREIDRICH ENGELS by their congress held in London in November of 1847. 44

The Illuminati Have Seven Basic Tenets

According to the writings of William Still, the Illuminati infiltrated the Mason organization and established a secret society within a secret society. In 1798, Professor John Robison, a highly respected British historian and longtime Mason, wrote in his Proofs of Conspiracy: "I have found that the covert secrecy of a Mason lodge has been employed in every country for venting and propagating sentiments in religion and politics, that could not have been circulated in pubic without exposing the author to grave danger. I have observed these doctrines gradually diffusing and mixing with all the different systems of Free Masonry till, at last, an association has been formed for the express purpose of rooting out all of the religious establishments, and overturning all the existing governments of Europe."

Members of the Illuminati at the highest levels of the order were atheists and Satanists. To the public they professed a desire to make mankind "one good and happy family." They made every effort to conceal their true purposes by use of the name of Freemasonry. According to Albert Pike, who wrote Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry (first published in 1871, republished in 1966), stated that his writings were intended for use by the thirty-third Degree Masonic Councils. Pike was probably the most prominent expositor of the creed and doctrines of the Masons. Lets read several quotes from this publication. 45

"Every Masonic temple is a temple of religion." ( Morals/Dogma p.213)

"The first Masonic legislator ... was Buddha (ibid. p. 277)

"Masonry, around whose altars the Christian, the Hebrew, the Muslim, the Brahmin, the followers of Confucius and Zoroaster, can assemble as brethren and unite in prayer to the one God who is above all the BAALIM (p. 226)

"Everything good in nature come from Osiris" [the Egyptian sun God; the all seeing eye is a Masonic representation of Osiris - one dollar bill] ( ibid. p. 476)

"Masonry ... conceals its mysteries from all except Adepts and Sages, and uses false symbols to mislead those who deserve to be misled" (ibid. p. 104-105)

"Everything scientific and grand in the religious dreams of the Illuminati ... is borrowed from the Kabbalah; all Masonic associations owe to it their secrets and their symbols (ibid. p. 744)

It is self-evident that Masonic beliefs and rituals flow from the occult. Beliefs from Egyptian mysticism, Chinese Buddhism, and the ancient mysteries of the Hebrew Kabbalah have been resuscitated to infuse their doctrines. What a splendid training ground for a new world New Age citizen!

"When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the Mystery of his Craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands." - Manly Hall, (Lost Keys of Freemasonry, p. 48)

"To you, Sovereign Grand Inspectors General, we say this, that you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st, and 30th degree - The Masonic Religion should be, by all of us initiates to the high degrees, maintained i the purity of the Luciferian Doctrine.... Yes Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay is also God...Lucifer, God of Light and God of good is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of Darkness and Evil" - Albert Pike, Sovereign Pontiff of Universal Freemasonry, Instructions to the twenty-three Supreme Councils of the World, July 14, 1889

Again let me reiterate, the Illuminati was a secret society hidden within the frame work of the Freemasonry organization. Its aims and goals for a totalitarian new world order are well documented; the movement was short-lived, it officially disbanded in the late 1700's. To officially disband does not mean the structure ceases to exist. Weishaupt succeeded in recruiting the Rothschild banking cartel to his organization. Now the Illuminati had financial backing to accomplish their goals. With the conversion of Rothschild, the wealthy families of the world were now in the hands of the Illuminati; even though the group disbanded, its secret agenda was propagated by international banking.

The Religious Branch

istorically the Mason organization has traditionally been exclusive for men, but in 1893 the "Free Thinkers" of the French lodge put tradition aside and allowed women to join their organization. The women's movement became known as "The Great X Symbolic Lodge of France," or "The Lodge of Human Rights". This acceptance of women into the Masonry organization became known as "Co-Masonry" or "Adoptive Masonry"; its headquarters are located in Paris France.

THEOSOPHICAL SOCIETY

Approximately twenty years earlier, a woman by the name of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891) founded the Theosophical Society of New York. On the surface there appears to be no connection between Blavatsky and the Masonry, but the connection does exist. According to Cardinal Caro y Rodriguez, author of the book, The Mystery of Freemasonry Unveiled, Blavatsky was also a member of the Masonic order when she organized the Theosophical Society in Europe.

"Madame Blavatsky, the promoter or founder of Theosophy in Europe, was also a member of the Masonic Lodges; her successor, Anne Besant, President of the Theosophical Society in 1911 was Vice President and great Teacher of the Supreme Council of the International Order of Co-Masonry. ...and among us, in our city, the brother masons are the ones that contribute mostly to spread the Theosophical Society." 46

The International Order of Co-Masonry and the infant Theosophical Society merged; clearly Blavatsky was dramatically influenced by the secret occultic doctrines of the Illuminati hidden in the highest orders of Freemasonry. It would be easy to assume that the Theosophical Society became the oracle of the Mason's secret agenda. Should society reject Theosophical occultic doctrine the Masons could easily disassociate themselves from Blavatsky. The inner circle of the Theosophical Society was known as "The Esoteric Section," eventually it became known as the "Eastern School of Theosophy," or E.S.. In the Mason organization the women's order is known as "Eastern Star," a direct reference to the influence of Blavatsky. According to Madame Blavatsky, she learned her esoteric occultic wisdom from India and Tibet, where she is reported to have spent several years. She claimed to have experienced astral projection (soul travel), and the ability to communicate with the spirit world while in these countries. She also claimed to written Isis Unveiled and her three-volume thesis entitled The Secret Doctrine. Blavatsky testified that the "Masters of Wisdom," Tibetan holy men communicated with her telepathically in England from the Himalayas. It is important to remember that her thesis called The Secret Doctrine dramatically influenced Adolf Hitler to seek world conquest and to orchestrate "The Final Solution". 47

Blavatsky taught an esoteric wisdom proclaiming the brotherhood of mankind, and the unity of all religions, except the monotheistic religions - Christianity, Islam, Judaism - which could not be reconciled with individual "enlightenment." The mission of the Theosophical Society was clearly stated in one of its founding statements.

"To oppose ... every form of dogmatic theology, especially the Christian, which the Chiefs of the Society regard as particularly pernicious ... to counteract, as fast as possible, the effects of missionaries to delude the so-called "Heathen" and "Pagans" as to the real origin and dogmas of Christianity and the practical effects of the latter upon public and private character in so-called Christian countries. 48

Blavatsky clearly adhered to the esoteric Luciferian doctrines; let her own words reveal her hidden agenda. Remember, the Theosophical Society was founded by her, and its established on her perception of God and nature.

"Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, is the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it is he ... who opened the eyes of the automaton (Adam) created by Jehovah, as alleged ... An adversary to Jehovah ... he still remains in Esoteric Truth the ever loving messenger ... who conferred on us spiritual instead of physical immortality." 49

Blavatsky died in 1891, Anne Besant, a militant feminist and a member of the Fabian Socialist Society of England - A close friend of George Bernard Shaw, H.G. Wells, and other leading Fabians - assumed leadership of the worldwide theosophical movement. Besant was an aggressive revolutionary and a prolific writer of occultic literature. Anarchy was the battle cry of Besant, pull down the old social order; she would enthusiastically participate or lead revolutionary street riots.

The third leader of the Theosophical Society to emerge was Alice Bailey who governed the Society along with her husband, Foster Bailey. During the early years of Bailey's administration, she organized a publishing company that would issue a periodical entitled Lucifer, the company was also name Lucifer Publishing. The company was brash and unashamed of its clearly demonic bias. Considerable pressure arose in the Christian community toward the periodical and the company, in 1922 Bailey changed the name to Lucis Publishing - the Greek form of Lucifer. This publishing company became the umbrella organization for occult organization. These include the Arcane School, World Goodwill, Triangles, Lucis Publishing, Lucis Productions, Lucis Trust Libraries, and the New Group of World Servers. Each of these organizations play a vital role in the propagation of New Age doctrine. In simple terms, the Theosophical Society is the New Age movement. Also Alice Bailey was the first occultist who coined the term "The New Age Movement," Blavatsky and Bailey are revered in the movement as the mothers of the faith. 50

THE NEW AGE MOVEMENT

Let the writings of the New Age movement confirm their true intentions; prayerfully ponder these quotes and consider for a moment the sinister plan of the leaders of this movement.

According to Djwhal Khul, the Tibetan Master and spirit guide to Alice Bailey, New Age leader and author, "Death is not a disaster to be feared; the work of the Destroyer is not really cruel or undesirable...Therefore there is much destruction permitted by the Custodians of the Plan (celestial council of ascended masters) and much evil turned into good." ...... Djwhal Khul also states that due to racial inferiority - their spiritual deficiencies - one third of all humanity must die by the year 2000. 51

Dr. Christopher Hyatt predicts that the New Age will come to pass only after bloodletting and pain on a mass scale. --- "The Guards of the Ancient era (Christian Fundamentalism) ... the one dying right now ... are not willing to give up their authority so easily. I foresee on a mass scale, that the New Age is not going to come into being as so many people believe and wish to believe. I see it as requiring a heck of a lot of blood, disruption, chaos, and pain for a mass change to occur". Dr. Hyatt also predicted that the Christian forces will be overcome. 52

John Randolph Price was told by his spirit guide that up to TWO and ONE HALF BILLION might perish in the coming chaos. 53

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi warns "the unfit and ignorant won't survive." 54

In the New Age view, the cleansing and healing of Mother Earth involves the removal of all those who have a NEGATIVE CONSCIOUSNESS. Unity of religion - even Satanism and witchcraft - is positive, but to insist that Jesus is the only way to salvation is not only undesirable, it is dangerously negative. Christians are at a lower and inferior level of consciousness. They are an inferior spiritual race ........ Spiritually inferior people, such as Christians, are said to send out negative thoughts unto the ethers of space which damage the earth's sensitive ecological system. 55

Djwhal Khul maintains that physical death isn't final, not if you believe in reincarnation and rebirth. The millions that die during this pseudo-cleansing cycle will be held back in another world or dimension where, after they are chastened and reeducated, they will be reincarnated and thus continue to work out their karma and their own evolutionary destiny. Meanwhile, here on earth the World Teacher, the New Age Christ (Antichrist), his hierarchy, and the New Age masses will go about the business of setting up the Kingdom. 56

"These are the people (servers in the New Age) who are beginning to form a New Social Order in the world ... They are occupied with the task of inaugurating the NEW WORLD ORDER, by forming throughout the world - in every nation, city and town - a grouping of people who ... stand upon the essential divinity of Man." Djwhal Khul, 57

New Age "prophets" F. Homer Curtiss and Harriette Curtiss, founders of the Order of Christian Mystics contend that mankind is "standing before the mighty portals, waiting for the curtain of time to rise on the New Age wherein wonders...will seem commonplace. All that's necessary for man to begin to manifest such wonders, they emphasized, is for an "elimination" of certain "unhealthy (i.e. Christian) elements." 58

The New Age teaches that the removal and physical destruction of all Christians will be a HOLY ACT. This is carefully and elaborately explained in the New Age bible called The Keys of Enoch; first published in 1978. This book describes the wrath that will befall those who, in the last days, refuse to embrace the New Age religion and its gods. It speaks of a "great cleansing" to take place as the earth is advanced to the New Age, - the age of Aquarius - an era is which our planet will enjoy a" higher orbital frequency." 59

The death and passing from the scene of the unbelievers in the New Age will open the earth up for higher "spiritual frequency." This higher frequency will, in turn, allow a "New Communion" to occur as the higher angelic beings (demons) join and merge with the holier race of humans, who have become gods. All this is supposedly to transpire around the year 2005, following a series of wars between the forces of good (New Age) and evil (Christians). 60

"It will occur after the wars between the Sons of Light (New Age) versus the Sons of Darkness (Christians) that a "New Age" will occur for all mankind surviving the great changes among all the vicissitudes of this planet." 61

In the Keys of Enoch, the Antichrist is to be the collective spirit of all those who stick to the contaminated man-made doctrines of Christianity and who teach against the "Living Word" given by the New Age leaders. The "Living Word" is said to consist of new "mystery texts" to be revealed later, as well as the Dead Sea Scrolls, These new mystery texts, or "Sacred Scriptures", shall be brought to man by interplanetary messengers who will reveal them only to the New Age "Sons of Light." 62

An interesting method of Bible interpretation has arisen out of the study of the dead sea scrolls. It is call the PAESHA format; it is a method of applying hidden interpretations to words and phrases that have common meanings. This method was introduced by the Essenes at Quram, and it was used to find hidden interpretations secreted in the sacred text of the Bible. The precise definitions of key words and phrases could only be known by the initiated into the hidden mysteries of this Jewish sect. According to a few dead sea scholars the precise definitions of hidden words were found in the scrolls. There is a strange doctrine surfacing from the theologians of the dead sea scrolls that teaches that Jesus was not born of a literal virgin, but Mary was a essenean virgin, a member of this Jewish sect. These people also teach that the miracles of Jesus are childish fables that the Paesha method of interpretation refutes. Also Jesus did not die on Calvary, instead He drugged Himself with wine and gall (hemlock) into a state of unconsciousness. Jesus did not experience a literal resurrection, instead He needed three days in the tomb to recover from the effects of the hemlock. All spiritual grandeur and glory is placated by this foolish method of Bible interpretation.

This method of Bible interpretation will be used by the Antichrist to refute the traditional doctrines of the Bible, and to deceive the nations concerning the divinity of Jesus Christ. Jesus will be presented to the world as a great world leader, an ascended master, one of the celestial hierarchy, but He is not God. According to the deceptions of this doctrine, Jesus secretly escaped the Roman guard with the aid of two of His disciples, and migrated to Rome where He died at the age of fifty four. The Bible interpretations presented by this New Age leader will be very intellectual and scientifically plausible, it will have the demonic power to deceive the nations with strong delusion. Jesus warned that even the very elect could be deceived by this line of thinking (Matt 24:24).

Why should I be concerned about Alice Bailey, Lucis Trust, and her other splinter groups? We all should be concerned because these groups have ferreted themselves into the United Nations, and have acquired consider political power and influence. For example, the Arcane schools are highly political training centers specially designed to train the elite of the United Nations and world governments in New Age thinking: currently there are four schools in New York, London, Geneva, and Buenos Aires. The World Goodwill organization has gained political recognition at the United Nations, they have been recognized as a "Non-governmental Organization," and this group is represented at regular briefing sessions at the United Nations in New York. The World Goodwill organization is also considered part of the Group of World Servers. This group merged with another occultic based group in 1961 entitled World Union. This organization is instrumental in development of the World Constitution and Parliament Society. Each of these groups play a vital role in furthering the objectives and goals of the New Age movement.

The United Nations has become a bee-hive of New Age mystical organizations. Most recently, Donald Keys, President of Planetary Citizens (another branch of Lucis Trust and the Theosophical Society), was commissioned by the U.N. to fade individual worship out and replace it with one religion for everyone. Donald Keys strongly believes in the need for a one world religion, and he envisions the U.N. as the supplier of this need; this belief is confirmed by the following statement made by him. 63

"The United Nations is the chosen instrument of God. Because of this fact, the world must come to treasure the soul of the U.N. For it is a soul that is all-loving, all-nourishing and all fulfilling."

What is meant by the statement that the United Nations is planning to fade out individual worship? It is important to remember the close association between Lucis Trust and the Theosophical Society with the United Nations and Donald Keys. Madame Blavatsky, the founder of the Theosophical Society, taught an esoteric wisdom proclaiming the brotherhood of mankind, and the unity of all religions, except the monotheistic religions - Christianity, Islam, Judaism - which could not be reconciled with individual "enlightenment." Donald Keys and the United Nations are simply reiterating the original purpose and mission of the Theosophical Society. Donald Keys has also made the following horrid statement.

"In the major cities of the world, temples have already been built in which to worship the U.N. god. Without any news coverage, similar temples are being constructed throughout the U.S." 64

The United Nations and the New Age movement have all the potential to fulfill the prophetic mandate to be the Great Whore. In the opinion of this writer the spirit of the Great Whore is nested in the dark hallways of the U.N., she is enthusiastically building for herself a worldwide throne.

The angel in Revelation chapter Seventeen presents John with an apparent riddle. "...there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition." Who are the seven kings? What is implied by the statement that five have fallen, one is, and one is yet to come? This all seems so confusing. I believe the riddle is not as confusing as it might seem. The books of Isaiah, Daniel, and Revelation are filled with prophetic fingerprints that will help us solve the riddle. So far in our studies we have associated the Antichrist Spirit with seven major political empires. The Antichrist Spirit will always express itself with the same four characteristics: lets ponder them for a moment. (Daniel Chapter Seven - Revelation Chapter Thirteen)

Lets refresh our memories. The Antichrist Spirit first expressed itself in the early Babylonian empire; from Babylon the Antichrist Spirit expressed itself in Egypt, Persia, Assyria, Greece, Rome, and eventually in the new world order established by the Antichrist. When John wrote the book of Revelation, he was currently imprisoned by Rome on the island of Patmos; therefore five antichristian kings had fallen by time of John's imprisonment; one existed at the time of John's writings - Rome, and the seventh expression would come at the end of the age. Now the riddle should not be so confusing; five antichristian governments have fallen, one antichristian government co-existed with the first century church, and one is yet to come, at the end of the age.

I wish to present the following hypothesis, the seventh expression of the Antichrist Spirit will not be the Antichrist we expect to arise at the close of this age. The seventh anti-christian government to arise on this earth was Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party: let me explain.

Hitler, as a young youth, joined a secret German society known as Thule Gesellschaft (Society). According to the writings of Adolf Hitler, and other historical records, the Thule Society worshipped Lucifer, and they were involved in Black magic and the occult. The same historical records also confirm the fact that the Thule Society evolved from a sinister Order of the Templars established in Germany and Austria toward the end of the 19th century. One of the sacred symbols of this group was the Swastika, an ancient pagan symbol associated with the worship of the sun god, that is still considered a part of Hinduism and Buddhism today. As Hitler became a leading figure in the society, He renamed the group to the Nazi Party; to this day the Nazi party still claims descent from the Knights Templar. 65

It is believed that there were two ways to learn the hidden mysteries of the Thule Society, and the ancient secret doctrines of the Knights Templar. The "proper route," is to learn "without black magic", through the process of Yoga and Transcendental Meditation. It is a slow process of initiation, and it requires a devoted personal quest for the hidden mysteries. The other way is to learn by the use of "black arts" or "black magic", through the use of mind expanding drugs, which short-circuits the arduous process of attaining the level of spirituality needed to cope with the reality of the spirit world. Hitler and the other members of his satanic group chose the easy method of drugs to attain higher levels of consciousness. History records the fact that during the years Hitler lived in a flop house in Austria, he used the mind expanding drug called Mescaline, a derivative found in Peyote, to explore the occultic world. The use of this drug develops a higher consciousness that permits one to communicate with the spirit world. 66

One day Hitler went to the Treasure House in Vienna Austria to study the Spear of Longinus - believed to be the spear used to pierce the side of Christ while on the cross; it is also believe that whoever possesses the spear will control the world. Hour after hour he gazed upon the relic, as if in a Transcendental Meditation. According to his own testimony he went into a trace. "The air became stifling so that I could barely breathe. The noisy scene of the Treasure House seemed to melt away before my eyes. I stood alone and trembling before the hovering form of the Superman - a Spirit sublime and fearful, a countenance intrepid and cruel. In holy awe, I offered my soul as a vessel of his will". 67

The Thule Society believed and quoted as gospel the writings of Helena Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society. The one book that especially inspired Adolf Hitler was "The Secret Doctrine," written by Blavatsky. In fact Hitler used the occultic doctrine taught in that book to justify his extermination of the Jews, his "Final Solution". Lets consider one passage from this book.

"It (Satan) is that Angel who was proud enough to be himself God; brave enough to buy his independence at the price of eternal suffering and torture; beautiful enough to have adored himself in full divine light; strong enough to still reign in darkness amidst agony, and to have made himself a throne out of this inextinguishable pyre...the prince of anarchy, served by a hierarchy of pure spirits." 68

Adolf Hitler believed in an esoteric, secret doctrine which promoted the idea that there were seven races of humanity: who all had their origins on the ancient continent of Atlantis. These races were known as the Rmoahals, Tlavatli, Toltecs, Turanians, Akkadians, Mongols, and Aryans. We normally classify the three branches of humanity as Caucasoid, Negroid, and Mongoloid. 69

The so-called Secret Doctrine first appeared among the Buddhists of ancient Tibet. It was not taught in an intellectual manner, nor was it passed down as a teaching from generation to generation. It remained a Secret Doctrine, revealed only to a special group of people who practice astrology and Transcendental Mediation. Only when the centers of the astral body of a novice had been brought to fruition and his etheric organism fully expanded could the Secret Doctrine be revealed to him. 70

The concept for the Lost Continent of Atlantis originally came from this Secret Doctrine, taught in ancient Tibet. It was expanded upon, however, by Plato, the Greek philosopher who lived some 400 years before the birth of Christ. According to Plato, Atlantis was a large island continent in the Atlantic Ocean. Plato wrote that a great empire existed on Atlantis. Its armies planned to subdue the Mediterranean countries, and were supposedly successful in parts of Europe and Africa. Athens resisted their attack and defeated them. Later, great earthquakes and floods shook Atlantis and submerged it. During a single day and night of rain, the island sank into the sea. According to the Secret Doctrine, the people of Atlantis were not crude primitive creatures, because of the atmosphere that surrounded the continent they couldn't see beyond a few feet. The people of Atlantis supposedly developed the ability to see with their third eye - the eye of clairvoyant perception. Their mind power was greatly enhanced. The concept of the Secret Doctrine that man possesses a third eye is also as old as the Tower of Babel. This third eye is referred to by some as the "mind's eye." It is also called the "all-seeing eye." 71

To prepare for such a moment of revelation, the novice learned step-by-step to read the cosmic script (also called astrology) through the art of Yoga or meditation. According to the Secret Doctrine, when the third eye had been opened to full vision of the Akashic Record, the initiate became a living witness of the whole evolution of the world and humanity.

One of the central themes of the Secret Doctrine is the Pantheistic adherence to the dogma of the "All Seeing Eye"; in fact the opening of the occultic third eye is a central theme in all mystery cults. The New Age movement of today strongly teaches the "All Seeing Eye" doctrine. The Secret Doctrine that inspired Hitler is still actively pursued by the New Age movement. The writings of Helena Blavatsky, Anne Besant, Alice Bailey, and other authors of the Theosophical Society and Lucis Trust formed the doctrinal foundation of the New Age movement today.

So why did I present this brief occultic history of Adolf Hitler? I did it to confirm the fact that Hitler was a human expression of the Antichrist Spirit. John understood that the final Beast would be another expression of the same spirit that drove Hitler into world conquest. A youthful Hitler was trained in the esoteric occultic doctrines of the Knights Templar; and he was educated in the Secret Doctrine by the writings of the Theosophical Society. The New Age movement today is nothing more than a socially sophisticated expression of the same demonic antichristian spirit that controlled Adolf Hitler. The final Beast will use the writings of Blavatsky to justify his actions in the same way that Hitler used them: simply stated, the Beast will the eighth expression of the Antichrist Spirit, but he will be a repeat of the seventh - Adolf Hitler.

Hitler estimated that there were approximately 11 million Jews in the world, and he planned to exterminate them all; in fact his plan was to destroy all but the Aryan race. According to his writings, when the Final Solution was complete the Aryian race would be free from hindrance to develop their mental powers. The Aryans would be taught to yield to the guidance of super-men, the spirit beings of the spiritual hierarchy, who would live in their bodies and minds guiding them in the development of their magical powers. The Final Solution of Hitler is frightfully similar to the doctrines of the New Age movement. Please reread the quotes provided by the New Age writers, it will shock the reader how similar these quotes are.

The Political Branch

uring the previous discussion on the Illuminati the connections between this secret organization and the Freemasons were presented. In 1771, a merchant named Kolmer returned to Europe from Egypt, determined to win converts to his esoteric mystery called "The Secret Doctrine". Simply stated the doctrine of Kolmer was based on the teachings of the Persian sage Manes, who lived in the 3rd century AD. Manes proclaimed himself to be the last and greatest prophet of God in a succession that included Buddha, Zoroaster, and Jesus. During his tour of Europe he stopped in Germany where he met Adam Weishaupt. For the next five years Kolmer trained Weishaupt in his form of the ancient mysteries of Babylon. Weishaupt adopted an ancient symbol to identify his secret society with the secret doctrines taught by his organization. The symbol was the "All Seeing Eye," which was drawn in ancient times as a circle with a dot in the middle. 72

The diabolical scheme of the Illuminati was exposed by the Bavarian government in the mid 1780's. Officials stormed the headquarters of the Illuminati confiscating the order's secret documents. The revelation that came from these documents were so heinous and outrageous some of the leaders of Europe refused to believe them, but time has proven the secret plot of the Illuminati to be real, and in today's computerized society even possible. George Washington, in two separate letters written in 1798, warned the American public of the sinister threat of the Illuminati. 73

We are tempted to forget the Illuminati, they have been exposed, and the order was disbanded, or was it? All though the Illuminati officially ceased to exist, its efforts were continued through the Grand Orient Lodge of France. Even though the organization was disbanded the ideas of the Illuminati continued in other secret organizations; it is suspected that the finances to continue the covert operations of the Illuminati came from the Rothschild family, who is believed to have joined the Illuminati in 1782 in Frankfurt. Simply stated the Illuminati went underground, they solidified their position in the highest ranks of the Masons, and they surfaced occasionally through secret political societies. 74

In 1847, a branch of the Illuminati called "The League of Just Men", commissioned one of their members to record their manifesto: the name of this man was Karl Marx. Karl Marx, along with Freidrich Engels wrote and published the Communist Manifesto. During the latter 1800's Marx and Engels infiltrated several different labor movements and polluted them with their manifesto. Very quickly the manifesto spread to Russia through the help of the existing Russian Masonic lodges. Lenin and Trotsky, who were financed by the Rockefellers and the Rothschild, brought about the communist revolution. In fact, Winston Churchill warned the world of the Illuminati influence in the communist revolution of Russian, in the Sunday Illustrated Herald, on Feb. 8, 1920: please read.

"From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt, to those of Karl Marx, to those of Trotsky...this worldwide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society to the basis of arrested development and envious malevolence, and impossible equality has been steadily growing. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the nineteenth century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become the undisputed masters of that enormous empire."

In fact, history records that the early Russian revolutionaries called themselves "Spartacusts," (Spartacus was the secret code name of Weishaupt used in the Illuminati) before they were known as Bolsheviks and Communists 75

Other revolutionary socialists groups were formed during these turbulent years. In 1835 a group of English socialists formed the Fabian Socialist Society, this organization heralded the same basic doctrines of other Illuminati branch societies. The helped form the Labor Representation Committee which became the Labor party in 1906. Some of the leading Fabianists were Sidney and Beatrice Webb, George Bernard Shaw, and H.G. Wells. A lesser known Fabianist was Anne Besant, the second world leader of the Theosophical Society. She took the helm of this occultic society in 1891 upon the death of Helena Blavatsky, the founder of the Theosophical Society and the first high priestess of the New Age movement. Now we have a tie with the New Age movement and the political societies of Europe.

Another revolutionary society that was a branch of Illuminized Freemasonry was the Jacobin Society, organized in 1789. Napoleon Bonaparte was its most famous member; this organization incited the French revolution. The Society also received help from other prominent Masons by the names of Voltaire, Robespierre, Danton, and Marat. The sinister root of the Jacobin Society was clearly established when Comte de Mirabeau and Maximilien Robespierre, the early leaders of the Society named Weishaupt as its "Grand Patriot". Is it possible the sinister plot of the Illuminati inspired a young man named Napoleon Bonaparte to seek world conquest and establish a French empire? 76

 BRITISH ROUND TABLE

In 1884, two men by the names of John Ruskin and his pupil, Cecil Rhodes (the African nation of Rhodesia was named after him), along with several other influential men by the names of Lord Esher, Lord Milner, Lord Balfour, Lord Rothschild, and Lord Gray formed a secret society call the British Round Table. The objective of this society was to extend the empire of England and eventually federalize its political system. In fact the historian, Carroll Quigley stated that the British Round Table considered making Washington D.C. the capital of their world-wide empire. In 1902, Lord Milner became the leader of the society: from 1909 to 1913, Milner organized several semi-secret groups known as Round Table groups. In 1919 the British Round Table founded the Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House). At the same conclave that formed the Royal Institute the American branch was formed called the Council on Foreign Relations. The organizer of the CFR was Colonel House, a senior aid to President Woodrow Wilson. 77

COUNCIL OF FOREIGN RELATIONS

The mission of this organization is to establish a NEW WORLD ORDER in the form of a one world government. The Council of Foreign Relations has 2900 members; 500 members are considered the political elite of the nation, 500 members occupy centers of influence, and the rest are influential in Academia, Media, Business and Finance, the Military and Government. According to Rear Admiral Chester Ward, former Judge Advocate General of the Navy from 1956 to 1960, and a member of CFR for fifteen years.

"This purpose of submergence of the U.S. sovereignty and national independence into al all powerful one world government is one of the objectives revealed to ninety five percent of its 1551 members (in 1975). There are two other ulterior purposes that CFR influence is being used to promote, but it is improbable that they are known to more than seventy five members, or that these purposes have even been identified in writing."

The Council on Foreign Relations has manipulated American politics from behind the scenes for nearly seventy years. Nearly every national security and foreign policy advisor of this nation were members of CFR; in fact George Bush was a CFR director between 1977 to 1979. The membership roles of the CFR also indicate that nearly every President, every Secretary of State and War/Defense (with the noted exception of James Byrnes of South Carolina) have been members of CFR since 1940. The Central intelligence Agency is also under the control of CFR, starting with Allen Dulles, who was a founding member of CFR. George Bush was also the head of the CIA under the Nixon administration, and his CFR connections has been established.

President Richard Nixon was also a member of CFR from 1961 to 1965. While he was president, he appointed several key CFR personnel to key cabinet positions. Included in his appointments was Henry Kissinger, who was appointed as a National Security Advisor and later as Sec. of State. Dr. Kissinger is a CFR member, and a protégé of Nelson Rockefeller. President Nixon also appointed Charles Yates to be a United Nations Ambassador, and he appointed George Bush to be chairman of the Republican party, Ambassador to the United Nations, Ambassador to China, and Director of the CIA; these two men were also CFR members. 78

History clearly records the fact that this organization is responsible for the creation of the United Nations, and they are instrumental in formulating the charter of the U.N. according to their plan for world government. In 1945, when the U.N. formulation conference was convened 47 members of CFR were in the U.S. delegation. Among the notable members were Alger Hiss (known communist spy), Adlai Stevenson, and Nelson Rockerfeller. Simply stated, these 47 men were successful in organizing the United Nations according to the secret world agenda of the CFR.

This would be the second attempt by the Council on Foreign Relations to establish a skeletal structure of a one world government. The first attempt was the League of Nations on Nov. 15, 1920 in Geneva, Switzerland, but the Christian churches in America overwhelmingly rejected the idea of a new world order. The people of America pressured Congress to reject the charter; therefore they voted not to enter the League. The Christian church frustrated the plans of the CFR, but it would not happen again. After World War II, the charter for the United Nations was drafted by the CFR, and in order to encourage American support the U.N. would be located in New York City on land donated by John D. Rockefeller Jr, who is the chief supporter of the CFR in the United States.

The Council on Foreign Relations over the years has mothered several other political action committees. World government is a massive undertaking, in order for the CFR to accomplish its task it needed to delegate areas of responsibility to spin-off organizations. The three main spin-off group are the Bilderbergers, the Club of Rome, and the Trilateral Commission; each of these groups were assigned specific tasks that would help usher in a new world order.

BILDERBERGERS

The Bilderbergers is an organization that was established in 1954 with approximately 100 of the political-elite from the NATO nations. The name of the group was extracted from the Bilderberg Hotel in Oosterbeek, Holland were there first meeting was held. The objective of this group was to reorganize Europe into one region. The funding for this organization came from several sources, but especially from the Rockefeller and Ford foundations. In fact, the key members of the American delegation to the Bilderbergers were David and Nelson Rockefeller; Henry Kissinger; Cyrus Vance; Zbigniew Brzezinski; Robert McNamara; and President Gerald Ford. Nearly every one of the American delegation are intimately connected to the CFR. The Aspen Institute was also created by the CFR and the Bilderbergers, and it was funded by the Rockefeller and Ford foundations. The primary goal of this institute is to train prospective world government administrators. 79

CLUB OF ROME

The Club of Rome is another organization that is intimately connected to the CFR. It began in April of 1968 at the invitation of Aurelio Peccei, a power Italian industrialist. The Club of Rome is said to consist of approximately 100 prominent world political figures, mostly from the CFR or its sister organization, the Royal Council on Foreign Relations (Chatham House); including several members from the Rockefeller family. The primary objective of the Club of Rome is to regionalize and unify the entire world. The Bilderbergers were commissioned to unify Europe, but the Club of Rome is commissioned to unify the world. 80

The Club of Rome is also known to have a strong New Age slant. Its founder, Aurelio Peccei, is a student of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, whose occultic writings have deeply impacted the New Age movement. In the book "Mankind at the Turning Point" written by Mihajlo Mesarovic and Eduard Pestel, a publication of the Club of Rome, Pecci made the following statement.

"Philosophers have, from ancient times, stressed the unity of existence and the interconnections of all elements of nature, man and thought. However, their teachings has seldom been reflected in political or social behavior" 81

The organizing the world into political regions is one of the primary goals of the United Nations. According to U.N. charter, chapter 8, article 52, subsections 2 & 3, and article 53, subsection 1 (Regional Arrangements); the countries of the world would be organized into economic regions, then eventually they would be merged into political regions. National sovereignty as we know it would no longer exist; the United States would become a megastate, our nation of open skies, blue mountains, flowing plains, and white sandy beaches would be lost in the quagmire of political ideologies. Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, who is also a member of the Bilderbergers, made the following statement. 84

"Here comes our greatest difficulty. For the governments of the free nations are elected by the people, and if they do something the people don't like they are thrown out. It is difficult to reeducate the people who have been brought up on nationalism to the idea of relinquishing part of their sovereignty to a supranational body...This is the tragedy." 85

No doubt the political-elite of the world fear the power of free elections, therefore the new world order will attempt to restrict the power of free elections and democracy. The Club of Rome released one of its initial reports on Sept. 17, 1973, entitled "Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System," written by Mihajlo Mesarovic and Eduard Pestel.

The Thesis divided the world into TEN ECONOMIC/POLITICAL REGIONS, but the original document written by Mesarovic and Pestel entitled these regions KINGDOMS. The intent of the Club of Rome is to create ten kingdoms, and to install ten kings. In 1974 Mesarovic and Pestel edited the document that was released to Club members, and published it under the name of Mankind at the Turning Point. In the book that was released to the public the word kingdom was changed to region, therefore the ten kingdoms would become ten regions. 86

TRILATERAL COMMISSION

The Trilateral Commission was created by David Rockefeller in 1973. The primary purpose of this organization is to establish financial interdependence among the super powers. Its goal is to regionalize the world according to economic zones. It also has the objective of establishing a one world currency and to usher in a cashless society. Zbigniew Brzezinski drafted the charter for the Trilateral Commission, the man was also a member of the Bilderbergers, he was the first chairman of the commission, and he later became Jimmy Carter's National Security Advisor. The three economic super powers are represented on the commission, they are the United States, Western Europe, and Japan. I believe the hidden agenda of the Trilateral Commission is to create Federal Reserve Banks in each of these areas, and to merge them into one super bank. 82

The Christian community is very concerned about the Super-Computer built by the Common Market in Luxembourg called "The Beast". According to published specifications on the system it has the ability to assign to every person on the face of the earth a bank account number. But little is published about the American counterpart built into a mountain side near the small town of Culpeper, Virginia. This computer system was built by the Federal Reserve; every bank transaction in American is channeled through the computer at Culpeper. The computer in Luxembourg and this computer are hooked up together, and they can communicate with each other. It would not surprise this writer that Japan would have its own super-computer interfacing with the United States and Europe. The vision of the Trilateral Commission is nearly fulfilled. 83

WORLD CONSTITUTION AND PARLIAMENT ASSOCIATION

One organization that was greatly influenced by the writings of the Club of Rome is the World Constitution and Parliament Association, established in 1959 in Lakewood, Colorado, by Philip Isely. Isely is also an active member in WCPA, he has been its Secretary General since 1966. The association has assembled a Provisional Parliament, and they have written a world constitution that is designed to replace the U.N. charter. The concept of ten economic regions identical to the regions described by the Club of Rome is included in the constitution. 87

The organization that has center stage prominence is the World Union. In 1961 the World Union merged with World Goodwill, a creation of Lucis Trust. Please remember that Lucis (Lucifer) Trust is the publishing arm of the Theosophical Society. It is important to known who some of the past and present members of Lucis Trust are, the membership roster includes: Robert McNamara, Donald Regan, Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, Paul Volcker, and George Shultz. Compare these names with the roster of the Council on Foreign Relations and we would see the political marriage of the occult and money. The World Union, the World Goodwill, the CFR, the Club of Rome, and many others, are all interconnected with Planetary Citizens, whose founder, Donald Keys, has been appointed the task to usher in a universal religion, and to faze out individual worship. These organizations form the religious and political backbone of the World Constitution and Parliament Association. 88

The World Council of Churches has strongly endorsed the objectives of the WCPA, in fact it would startle the average Christian to discover the number of Christian pastors, even Assembly of God ministers who are recorded on the membership roster of the WCPA. The World Council of Churches is not concerned about unity of the Christian faith, their only goal is to merge their member Christian churches into the one world religion of the United Nations. 89

I cannot stress this point strongly enough, a world constitution has been written, and a ratification process is underway. Momentum for the constitution is growing in the United Nations, and the average citizen is ignorant of its existence. Very little media coverage has been given to the world parliament, because the power of the faithful Christian voice could seriously damage its ratification through the power of the vote. The CFR will not have another League of Nations fiasco, the media will keep the masses ignorant, and divert their attention to insignificant matters. The preponderance of evidence clearly exposes the truth that the United Nations, under the orchestration of the CFR, COR, and the WCPA are planning to restructure planet earth into a TEN NATION CONFEDERACY governed by a one world government.

For years I heard prophecy preachers warning of the revival of the old Roman empire in Europe, the ten toes of Nebuchadnezzar. Our attention has constantly been focused on the Common Market, the European Currency Unit, and the United States of Europe. We analyze all countries associated with the Common Market; there must be ten, but now there is twelve, then two must withdraw in order for the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation to be fulfilled. We are foolish to think the Antichrist will only govern a ten nation confederacy in Europe. Our attentions must shift from Europe to encircle the globe; the ten nation confederacy will encompass the entire planet with Europe being one portion of the plan. The Antichrist will be given the power to rule over all kindreds, tongues, and nations; this prophetic phrase includes much more than Europe.

To review these progression of events and attribute the obvious diabolical scheme to any one man or group is absurd. A spiritual power must be the binding tie, only Satan could foster such a plan, and keep the coals of chaos smoldering below the surface. How else can we explain the carnage of human history? The Antichrist spirit is real, it has expressed itself on seven different occasions, with the eighth and final expression being a derivative of the seventh. What other explanation could there be, every major world empire - from Babylon to Adolf Hitler - practiced an esoteric form of the ancient mysteries of Babylon. Each of these empires manifested the four qualities necessary to qualify as an Antichrist expression. Rome as an empire died over a thousand years ago; it would be easy to think that the esoteric mysteries died with them, but they did not. From the Kabbalah, to Gnosticism, to the Knights Templar, to the Rosicrucians, the heinous Satanic plot for world conquest - the call for a new world order - has survived. The merger of the Rosicrucians with the stone masons guild of Europe in the late 1600's gave Satan's sinister plan roots of political power once again. The same ancient mysteries inspired Adam Weishaupt, and the Illuminati was born in 1776. He merged his sinister order into the highest levels of Freemasonry, this would be logical since both organizations were fostered by the same form of Egyptian Pantheism. I am convinced that 90% of the membership of Freemasonry does not recognize its sinister root, nor do they realize the goal of this organization to establish a new world order. As usual only a small, specially selected number of this organization understand its true purpose and root.

At this point in human history Satan's diabolical plan split into two branches. The first branch would preserve the devilish, occultic nature of Satan's ancient mysteries. Helena Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society, carried the cancer of pantheism out of the highest orders of Freemasonry into the public eye of the twentieth century. The vision for a one world religion did not die with Blavatsky, her disciples by the name of Anne Besant and Alice Bailey solidified Satan's sinister plan, and the New Age movement was born. Splinter groups of Lucis Trust pushed forward the secret plan into all arenas of present day society: some of the names of these groups are, World Goodwill, World Servers, World Union, and Planetary Citizens.

The second branch that would sprout from the root of the Illuminati and Freemasonry would be the political arm of Satan's quest for world control. The seed of world conquest, and a new order of the ages, was sown in the ground of secret revolutionary societies and the money families of Europe. The British Round Table was born, and the children of this political union would be the Royal Institute of International Affairs and the Council on Foreign Relations. The money of the Rothschild and Rockefeller families would carry on the vision of the Knights Templar, the Rosicrucians, and the Illuminati; their influence would provide the political muscle to become the king-makers of world politics.

The day has arrived; the two branches of Satan's devilish plan are merging together in the United Nations. The new world order strongly heralded by President George Bush, a world order where the United Nations would be the central hub of world politics and power. There is no doubt, the United Nations is also attempting to phase out individual worship, and to replace it with their form of religion, a religion comprised of all pantheistic beliefs. The United Nations paints a self-portrait of benevolence, compassion, and humanity, but its true spiritual

root and objective is a one world government, and the practice of a one world religion. The goals and objectives of the United Nations are the same evil plans fostered by Satan throughout human history: lets keep our eyes on New York City.
