I picked up the edition of this book, and was surprised to read the following statement in the preface: This obviously did not happen on that date. However, that does not mean that my research was incorrect. It means that another date has been selecte I picked up the edition of this book, and was surprised to read the following statement in the preface: It means that another date has been selected and that this date has truly been kept secret from honest researchers such as myself.
Let me impress upon you: Let me add that I still believe that this date is very near. He introduces us to the New Age world ruler "Lord Maitreya" who has been living high in the Himalaya Mountains since preparing to take over the world. In Epperson suggested that Maitreya's descent from the mountains was imminent.
One wonders how old the Himalayan boogey man is getting these days, and whether Epperson might realize his research has been falsified. View 2 comments. Jun 11, Brandon rated it liked it. I honestly was neutral in terms of liking this "book". It had no characteristics of a book. It had no plot, no story line, no action of any sort, no descriptive words, or much of anything other than listed facts. This book reads like a published shopping list. Was very plain and boring.
I regret taking the time to read this "book". If it were an actual book containing what is listed above, then maybe I would have rated it higher.
As it is, it is a three star "book". The facts listed were really I honestly was neutral in terms of liking this "book". The facts listed were really interesting, and they even made me do some background research to learn more about the facts listed throughout the book. What I did read, was very intriguing. Honestly, I learned from this published list. Even though it was not a very well structured book, the information was still a joy to read, and I will probably save this book and add it to my virtual bookshelf.
Overall, this book was a poorly laid out, yet amazing and very intriguing book. I do recommend that anybody interested in conspiracy theories reads it, but they should be older than 13 because children don't usually understand much about the history and politics behind America.

This was a pretty interesting read, possible because the author has such a strong personality - which, ironically, he tells us in a preface will not influence his analysis of the facts.
He actually states that he is just relaying evidence that he has found to us, and will not have a bias in the matter. I wish I had the book with me to quote. My favourite part of the book is his attack of the secularism of public schools. He blames Dewey for this, and attempts an attack of Dewey's character which doesn't seem relevant to me. Dewey said he denies the existence of eternal truths, like the ones religion spews. Epperson hates this, and in capital letters, calls Dewey insane for denying eternal truths - because, you know, eternal truths are eternal, so how can they not be true?
I think this is a fairly good overview of the topics central to modern conspiracy theories, and it was a fun read due to Epperson's hilarious interjections. Sep 21, Ashti rated it it was amazing.

Namun sangat membantu. Manusia perlu waspada akan gerakan Zaman baru yang terlihat manis pada pengajarannya, namun sangat beracun jika dicerna. Buku ini diperuntukan bagi mereka yang ingin melihat seperti apa dunia yang mereka pijak saat ini. Dunia ini, penuh konspirasi. Jan 01, Nathaniel Durgasingh rated it it was amazing. Very insightful material on how the future our current present looks. This book was written in but has been prophetic with a lot of its conclusions and thoughts.
I would recommend and suggest this book to anyone who is 'cynical' about the events that are currently taking place because they would now realize that they have been correct in there assumptions.
Mar 23, Kashif Nasir rated it liked it. This was my first book on this subject, although the Author say's that this is the first book written on the subject, the book itself consists of quotations from other books???
It's informative, that's all I can say. Aug 20, Skyler Fragoso rated it it was amazing. This book opens a whole new perspective of things especially for this category. A new world order is a conspiracy theory of Government taking full world control of all of the human population so it's always a interesting idea to have in mind.
It has been the unjust accusation of every enemy of the Institution in all times past, that its object and aim is the possession of power and control in the affairs of state.
It is in vain that history records no instance of this unlawful connection between Freemasonry and politics; it is in vain that the libeler is directed to the Ancient Constitutions of the Order, which expressly forbid such connections.
But the evidence that connects the Masonic Lodges to such activity continues to accumulate, Mr. Mackey's denials not- withstanding. There certainly seems to be a power in knowing some- thing that you can't tell your family, friends, children or busi- ness acquaintances. Adam Weishaupt said it best with this selection from his writings: These energies when released can have a potent effect. College fraternities and sororities teach the college student to accept secret initiation ceremonies and hidden knowledge at a young age.
The Masons, intended for adult males, have similar organizations for their young sons and daughters, and other secret organizations for their wives. All of these organizations tend to prepare their male members for further service in the master secret organization: However, the Masons are quick to point out that they conceal their truths from the general public. Hall wrote this: But, there is an "esoteric" definition that shall be discussed later] one to understand the meaning of the Symbols.
Symbolism fulfilled both the need to conceal sacred truths from the uninitiated and to offer a language for those qualified to understand it. Alice Bailey, one of the key writers supporting the New Age movement, wrote this: These Ancient Mysteries were Claudy, told anyone who read the Masonic literature that they had best understand the language, or they would miss the true meaning of the words. The reason that this is so is because the Masons have admitted that they have con- cealed the true meaning of some of their language.
However, it is possible to know the true meanings of at least some of the hidden language. And the reader can be certain that the discovered interpretations are correct because the Masons themselves have revealed the hidden meanings of some of their symbols in some of their own literature. The secret societies that have concealed their purposes in hidden meanings, concealed writings, and private initiation cermonies, are admittedly powerful.
I mean the secret societies They do not want constitutional government; Carl Claudy, a Masonic writer, told his readers that secrets are inside secrets which are inside other secrets. Nikolai Lenin, the Marxist Communist who communized the Russian nation in the years following the Russian Rev- olution of , wrote this: That something is so horrible, so terrible, that knowledge of that secret must be kept from those who would have the most to lose by knowledge of that secret.
In the case of the secret societies, it is a belief in Lucifer, also known as Satan, the devil. But those in a non-Communist nation targeted for a Communist government are not to learn that simple truth. They are to be told that the system is the culmination of man's upward search for a perfect society. And they must be deluded into believing that there is no cost in the change from their, current form of government to the Communist form.
But history has recorded the brutality of the Com- munists and the fact that millions of people have had to die as the Communists installed that form of government. The evidence to support that contention will be discussed later in this study.
Secrecy is certainly not a part of the Chrisian religion. It is possible to know that nothing that Jesus said has been hidden from the Christians. He told the high priest in John The Masons know that they must conceal their horrible secret from the people. That secret is simply the fact that certain of their members worship Lucifer.
And that they keep that secret from the overwhelming majority of their own members. And certainly the public is not to know this fact. And the evidence to support that conclusion is ample. But only to the one who cares enough to look for it. One of the first symbols that needs to be examined is the symbol of the serpent, also called a snake or dragon.
Hall states that the serpent was a symbol of "wisdom. Hall continued: Hall links the serpent with the Ancient Mysteries previously discussed. He continues with the com- ment that the serpent was worshipped by the priests of that religion: Hall cap- italized the two words, as one would do for a deity or for royalty] reigned over the earth. The serpent was their symbol They were the true Sons of Light, and from them have descended a long line of adepts and initiates duly tried and proven according to the law.
Hall capitalized the two words "Serpent Kings" when he wrote: Hall had reason to capitalize the words, because he had discovered that the serpent represented divinity. Notice also that Mr. Gregson, even though he chose not to capitalize the word "serpent," confirmed that Mr. Hall's use of the capital letter was correct when he stated that there was a connection between "Divine Wisdom" and the serpent.
Hall made the same connection in these comments: He identified that truth in this quote when he described a Brazen Serpent: The story is covered in Isaiah How art thou cut down to the ground For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will be like the most High.
There is a higher and a low- er intellect. Thus, symbolically, there is a serpent that crawls, and the higher intellect, that which allows man to know God - the heavenly serpent, the serpent in the , ii sky. He wrote this: It has been suggested that Baphomet is none other than the Ancient of Days, or Creator. More cannot be said here without improperly re- vealing what we [meaning we Masons] are bound to hele, conceal and never reveal. A Christian minister, Reverend Alexander Hislop, wrote a book that included some discussion on the subject of serpent worship.
It was an ancient practice. In the mythology of the primitive world, the serpent is uni- versally the symbol of the sun. This coin was also the subject of an article in the September, issue of The Good News magazine. It depicted a serpent entwined around a tree stump. To the left of the stump stood an empty cornucopia, and to the right a flourishing palm tree. The name means "the man-instructing snake, or the "snake that instructs man.
As the legend goes, Aesculapius was ultimately struck down by a thunderbolt thrown by an angry Zeus, king of the gods, and cast into the underworld. In the mythologies of many ancient civili- zations, the image of a fallen tree was used to symbolize the cutting off of a great god or hero, someone cut off in the midst of their power. The snake on the coin was shown twist- ing itself around the dead stump, exerting its power in an attempt to restore his fallen kingdom.
The cornucopia is an ancient symbol of plenty, but it was empty on the coin. This has been interpreted as meaning that the abundance had been cut off because the great "god" has been cut off, However, the implication is that the horn of plenty will return when the fallen "god" is restored to his "rightful" position. The palm tree shown on the coin is a well known symbol of victory.
So it appears that the coin was minted to depict the anticipated return of the fallen snake-god to the world. The Bible talks about a fallen serpent in the book of Rev- elation, chapter 12, verse 9.
However, in this case, the snake is connected to another symbol of the serpent: As has already been discussed, there is indeed evidence that this is the case. Another symbol that needs to be analyzed is the star.
One of the directions it could move would be towards the earth. If itwas moving towards the earth, it could be called a "falling star. Lucifer is a "fallen angel," according to Isaiah, an Old Testament prophet, who wrote this in Isaiah And other parts of the Bible report that he fell to the earth. So, it is conceivable that the symbol of the "falling" or "blazing" star could be a symbol of Lucifer.
A variety of authors have used their writings to discuss the star as a symbol. Professor Adam Weishaupt, the founder of the Illuminati, was one who explained what he considered the star to be a symbol of: Mackey wrote that the star: Hutchens, the Masonic writer who has authored the recent book on Masonry, further interpreted the symbol of the star: Albert Pike identified it with the worship of the past in this collection of quotes from his writings: Originally they looked beyond the orb to the invisible God Krishna is the Hindu Sun-God.
The Sun was His manifestation and visible image. Pike identified the sun as a symbol of a deity that should be worshipped. He chose to capitalize the first letter in the word, the "s," as one would in recognizing the name of a deity. Albert Mackey repeated Mr. Pike's contentions with com- ments like these about "sun worship: Eusebius says that the Phoenicians and the Egyptians were the first who ascribed divinity to the sun.
These believers, called adepts, certainly knew that the people would not accept their mystery religion, so they had to conceal it from them. So the task became one of cre- ating a religion around a belief that they knew the people would accept, because it would make some sense, at least as far as the adepts would explain it.
But their basic purpose was to create a popular religion as a cover for their secret worship. The secret religion would be built around a belief in the sun. The sun would be a perfect thing to build a religion around because of its basic nature. It is very visible, and has a very important role in man's life. It rises in the morning it appears to be born and then sets during the evening, it ap- pears to die and then appears to be "born again" the next morning.
It also appears to wander in the sky, setting further north or south each night. It then returns back to any given position twice a year.
So the sun appears to have a major birth or death twice each day and twice each year. It would be very easy for the adepts to explain to the peo- ple that only something bigger than mankind, a god, had the ability to die and come back to life. So, the adepts would teach the people that they had to pray to the god or it would choose not to return. They encouraged a worship of the sun so that it would return to mankind again, either once a day, or once every six months.
Albert Pike confirmed this view with this explanation of why early man worshipped the sun: In other words, the sun did not have to return each morning. Man certainly must have figured out just how important the sun was to his life and well-being and he cer- tainly must have determined that if the sun chose not to re- turn, all of mankind would perish.
So it was an easy jump from a belief that the necessary sun was an entity that chose to move across the daytime sky, to a belief that it would re- turn only if man prayed to it to return. But there is something even more interesting to be con- sidered that Pike didn't explain with that comment.
Obviously, to make the new religion work, the believers would have to be able to predict the movements of the sun. It wouldn't be too long before some of the common people would start noticing that the sun was neither an actual being nor a god to be worshipped, but something that moved according to precise laws. If the common people figured that out, they would not need the adepts who had computed the sun's peri- odic cycles.
So, to keep their power intact, they would teach the people that if they did not accommodate their wishes, they would make certain that the sun did not return.
They could even predict, as their measurements became more so- phisticated, the exact time and date when the moon would go between the sun and the earth, causing the sun to "disap- pear. They could then explain to the people that if they did not continue to pay them sort sort of tribute, they would not intercede in their behalf, and the sun would not reappear.
To keep the minds of the common people away from figur- ing out that the whole religion was a scam, the adepts would conduct beautiful and ornate ceremonies around the worship of the sun. And they would expect the people to pay them for the elaborate rituals. And to make their rituals valid, the adepts would always claim that the sun obeyed their prayers, thereby convincing the people of their need to keep the adepts around.
The people would continue to pay tribute to these adepts as long as they appeared to be successful. Now, if the adepts knew that the sun was a symbol of something that the people would not support, such as a belief that Lucifer, the devil, was the god that they worshipped, they would have to continue with their charade, so that the people would not decide to stop worshipping.
They would have to keep their beliefs from the people, and conceal their secret worship in hidden symbols. So sun worship as a religion prospered. Hutchens discussed that position in his book: They reflect upon the way the earth may again be gladdened by his presence. Pike connected the sun to Osiris, mentioned by Mr. Hutchens as worthy of being mourned: Osiris was represented by the Sun. Mackey went a little further and informed his readers that: Claudy, the author, himself a Mason, connected the sun worship with the ceremonies inside the Masonic Lodge: And notice that Mr.
Claudy capitalizes the word "East," apparently in reverence to the spot where they believe that this god resides. The Masons tell the world that they circumambulate de- fined as walking around the Temple floor during their initia- tion ceremonies. Claudy explains why this rite is per- formed: Thus thought of circumambulation is no longer a mere parade but a ceremony of significance, linking all who take part in it with the spiritual aspirations of a dim and distant past.
The significance of that omission will be dis- cussed later. Claudy reported that this style of walking was traceable to the ancient religions of the past.
So, this practice of the modern Masons is based upon the ancient religious practices of the Ancients. So the Masons are telling us that early man walked around in a circle because he was worshipping the sun. Then they tell us that they are doing it for the same reason. There are reasons that the north as a location to be vis- ited in their walk around the temple floor is not included in their initiation rites, and six of the great Masonic writers have told us why this is so. Captain William Morgan offered his readers this explana- tion with this comment from his book: Mackey confirmed that statement in his book: And Mr.
Pike confirmed the comments made by the other two Masons with this declaration: Hutchens became the fifth Masonic writer to confirm this detail: We hear in the West the eagles gather and the doom of tyran- ny is near.
In the South, truth struggles against error and oppression. In the North, fanaticism and intoler- ance wane. In the East, the people begin to know their rights and to be conscious of their dignity and that the sun's rays will soon smite the summits of the mountains. Hutchens informed his readers that the North was where "fanaticism and intolerance" resided. What he meant by this and what the symbol of the North represents will be explored in later paragraphs of this study. I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation in the sides of the north.
But, un- til then, the "North is a place of darkness. Hutchens tells his readers why that is so: He writes: A single powerful light, a great globe of glass, representing the sun, is in the South. In a physical sense the greater light comes from the sun and the transparencies provide lesser light symbolically, the sun or great light is the Truth and the lesser lights are man's symbolic representation of Truth.
He says that the rite: In making this pro- cession, great care was taken to move in imitation of the course of the sun. Mac- key directly states that the rite is connected to sun worship. The worship of the sun, moon and stars, 'the host of heaven.
One can understand what Mr. Mackey meant by that comment: So he was telling the truth, but concealing it in a sym- bolic language. Hutchens then volunteered the information that in the 12th of the 32 degrees the Rite of Circumambulation is preserved.
This practice, called circumambulation, is derived from the ancients and existed among the Romans, Semites, Hindus, and others. It is thought to have been a rite of purification. The sun was believed to travel around the earth; the initiates imitated the movement of the sun when they made circuits around the altar.
Hutchens tells his readers: Yellow is representative of the sun, hence light and knowledge. The 25th degree initiate is called a Knight of the Brazen Serpent, and the 28th degree initiate is called a Knight of the Sun. There is another symbol of the sun inside the Masonic Lodge. The Worshipful Master, the equivalent of the Presi- dent of the Lodge, sits in the east side of the temple.
We are told why that is: L76 Other individuals and organizations besides the Masonic Lodges are also involved, in varying degrees, with sun wor- ship, or with an acknowledgement that the sun plays a cen- tral role in their understanding of the nature of the world. We must draw forth from the Great Cen- tral Sun — that eternal Light with which we were anointed from the beginning. Very early in his life, he joined a secret organi- zation called the Thule Society. And forty years after the war, some historians are finally delving into its strange beliefs.
Hitler joined. It became the controlling party of the German government prior to and during the war. Hitler] saw in the Jewish people, with their black hair and swarthy complexion, the dark side of the human species, while the blond and blue-eyed Aryans constituted the light side of humanity.
The Bible talks about it as well. Ezekiel was an Old Testament prophet writing sometime during the period of to B. He tells about how he was taken by God to see a practice occurring near the Tem- ple. This is what he wrote in Ezekiel 8: That reference reads as follows: The Bible even went so far as to say, in both instances, that He considered the practice to be an "abomina- tion" or an "evil.
Because some Christian churches pray to the Sun god in their church services. And don't understand who they are praying to. Simply stated, the Sun god that they were praying to is Lucifer!
But before that study commences, the author has to take an unusual step and attempt to clarify his position on the subject.
I have endeavored to write this book as an historian, carefully basing my conclusions on my own research into the writings of the people involved. I have literally read hundreds of works on the subject of this book, and have attempted to record those comments as accurately as was possible. Although I am a Christian, I have tried not to let my reli- gious views color my thinking on the subject of this book. I believe that it is possible to show that this is a fact of history, not as a religious writer, but as an historian.
And that is what I have attempted to do in this book. I have, on occasion, quoted the Bible, and will do so in the remaining material whenever the context seems to war- rant it. At the very least, for the skeptic, the Bible is a magnificent record of the history of a particular group of people during particular periods of the past.
I have used the Bible as I have used any other book, as a book of history. But it has always been to make a counterpoint in a specific instance where the historical facts seem to indicate that the use of the Bible warranted it.
In this instance, it becomes important to start with a reading of a particular section of the Bible, and then show how others, not known for their belief in the God of the Bible, have also chosen to believe that section as well.
It is hoped that the reader can understand the signifi- cance of what I have just written. It will make the reading of the remaining material a little easier to understand. Other names for this creature are Sa- tan, and the devil. One of the first explanations of just who this being known as Lucifer is, is found in the Old Testament in a book written by the prophet Isaiah, who wrote around B. He wrote that Lucifer was created "full of wisdom," and was "perfect.
How art thou cut down to the ground which didst weaken the nations! I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
And in II Thessalonians 2: The creator God placed Adam, the first man and later Eve, the first woman in this garden, but told them that there were certain rules that they had to abide by. These are spelled out in Genesis 2: Later, Lucifer spoke through a serpent to Eve, but in reality, to both men and women: Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
And the woman said unto the ser- pent: We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the gar- den: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden [the tree of the knowledge of good and evil] God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, lest ye die.
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die. For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
He was cast down from heaven, because he desired to ascend directly into the seat of heavenly power, the throne of God. He is referred to as the "son of the morning. His desire is to sit on the north side of the mountain of God. Lucifer can deceive the world, because he has been transformed into an "angel of light. Lucifer can work "lying wonders. However, not all agree with a picture of Lucifer being evil.
Albert Pike wrote: Pike believes that Lucifer was not a force of evil, but could be a force for good. Pike's, it becomes important to quote a letter that he wrote on July 14, to the 23 Supreme Councils of the world. Judging from the con- tents of this letter, it appears that Mr. Pike was attempting to tell the leaders of the various Supreme Councils all over the world that they were to know that Lucifer was the secret god of the Masons. This letter clearly indicates that he believed the position that Lucifer was a god who had come to earth for the good of mankind.
Pike meant that the "crowd" was all of the non-Masons, or the public at largel We worship a God, but it is the God that one adores without super- stition. In other words, they were to deny that Lucifer was their god whenever an outsider was smart enough to break through all of the secrets and figure it out.
So the secret inside the Masonic Order is that Lucifer is their secret god. Any non-Mason today who attempts to explain to any of their Masonic friends or relatives that this is the secret inside the Lodge will be met with an instanteous denial.
Every Mason, whether they know the secret of the Lodge or not, will obviously deny the accusation. Pike continued: Pike seems to indicate that it is the 30th, 31st and 32nd degrees that are to be taught the "Luciferian doc- trine. But, here Pike seems to say that that lesson is to be taught at an earlier degree. He is considered to be a god! The priests, and the rabbis, have it all back- wards, and are all slandering his name.
As has been illustrated, the Bible states that Lucifer is nothing more than a fallen cherub. He is not a god. Yet Mr.
Pike clearly states that Lucifer is a god! And secondly, those who claim that he is the "wicked one" are "slandering" him. Those individuals have it all wrong!
Adonai, the rival of Bal and Osiris. Adonai is the "ri- val" of Lucifer, both in the Bible, and in the writings of Albert Pike. Pike writes that Lucifer and Adonay are rivals, and that the religious world has it all backwards: That authenticity of that letter by Albert Pike that was just quoted has been questioned by a variety of writers.
It has been reported that Mr. Pike made these comments in a "encyclical" hand carried to the a meeting of 23 Supreme Councils of the world on July 14, in Paris, France. This author is willing to concede that the only evidence for the contents of this "encyclical" consists of it being quoted in a book written by Frenchman named A.
A copy of that page that contains that quote, and the cover of the book has been supplied to this author by a concerned researcher who had someone locate the book in France for him and make copies of the pertinent pages. The author has read another book that contains the English translation of that "encyclical. She cites the book by Mr. She obviously believed that the letter was true and con- tained the actual thoughts of Mr.
Albert Pike. In other words, the only source for the letter is a French- man who quotes it in his book and not Mr. Albert Pike him- self. It must be assumed that Mr. Pike, if he were alive today and was asked whether the letter was his, would deny that he ever wrote such an "encyclical," whether or not he had written it.
But, the reader is admonished to remember that if he did indeed worship Lucifer, and wrote the "encyclical," he would certainly have to deny it. So that answer would tell the researcher nothing. It is the contention of this writer, and others who are at- tempting to decipher the secret symbols of the Masonic Or- der, that a small percentage of the Masons know that all of the symbols inside the Lodge refer to Lucifer.
And it must be remembered that these Masons must of necessity do all that they can to deny that fact. However, this writer is of the opinion that Mr. Pike did indeed worship Lucifer, and is not basing that conclusion on just this one letter. Notice that Mr. Pike has written else- where that he considered Lucifer to be the secret god of the Masonic Lodge. So, it is not essential to this writer's position that this "encyclical" be proven to be valid.
It is the author's contention that there is ample evidence from other sources, including from Masons other than Mr. Pike, that the secret god inside the Masonic lodges is Lucifer. That evidence is available to anyone who cares to locate it But there is another Mason who knows that Lucifer is the "good god" of a particular segment of the Masons.
Pike's fel- low 33rd degree Mason, Manly P. Hall, also felt that this "god" was a "god of good. The Solar Diety This "god" who came back to life is not the Jesus of the Bible, because Mr.
Hall refers to him as "The Solar Diety. Hall has further identified Lucifer as the god of some of his fellow Masons. Socialists recognize each other by the words In the name of the one to whom a great wrong has been done. He makes men ashamed of his bestial ignorance and obedience; he emancipates him, stamps upon his brow the seal of liberty and humanity, in urging him to disobey and eat of the fruit of knowledge.
Marrs discusses the thoughts of a leader in a mys- tical organization called the Stelle Group, named Eklal Kue- shana. He writes that this New Age leader says that: Pike, and others, pictures him as a force for good.
But the connection between Lucifer and the Ancient Mys- teries needs to be further amplified. The Mysteries had a purpose: Wilmshurst's statement: The gods are not brought down to earth; rather man is raised to the gods. He was a nineteenth century philosopher, and a hero of the Communists like Karl Marx. There is no salvation, save through the medium of man. He has been quoted us saying this after his new conversion: One of these days, I'll be so complete I won't be human; I'll be a god.
The Bible anticipated it, and Isaiah wrote about it back in B. This is what he wrote in Isaiah One who apparently has not believed those statements in the Bible is Shirley MacLaine, who has become a spokesman for the position that man can become a god.
Each man has complete control of his decision-making, according to Miss MacLaine. In fact, man's control has extended into areas few have ever claimed for mankind. These are the thoughts of Miss MacLaine: We choose our parents, and I think the parents choose the chil- dren they want to have before they ever come into an incarnation. She commented that he looked at her shelf of books on, amongst other subjects: Miss MacLaine has since gone on a nationwide tour pro- moting her new found religious views to the public.
News- week magazine reported in that she had made a great deal of money explaining her new thoughts to others: Obviously, Shirley's tours have proven to be both popular and lucrative. The Newsweek article on her seminar men- tioned a little of what she teaches in them. The following are a few of her comments: For the spiritually inclined, 'a window of light' will appear on those days [August 16 and 17, ] that MacLaine says will 'allow us to rise to a higher plane of cosmic understanding.
AIDS and cancer of the abdomen. According to the Newsweek article, she told her audience: But "Doctor" MacLaine is not as dumb as one might think. The Newsweek magazine article reported: Time magazine reported that her "five books on self-exploration and self -promotion have run to more than 8 million copies. And since that nature is in itself divine, all that springs from it is praiseworthy, and those acts usually regarded as sins are not to be condemned.
These are the two opposing positions. And the battle between them has begun. As was covered in the last chapter, it is simply the promise of personally becoming a god!
But there is another bait. It is unlimited knowledge of the entire universe! Hall added these comments about this belief system: The Humanist Religion this will be examined more care- fully in a later chapter that is currently becoming America's major religious view of mankind, also has a plank in its platform about the total dependence on man's reason.
Reason and intelligence are the most effective instruments that humankind possesses. Professor Weis- haupt wrote these two statements: Harold J. Reason challenges our minds, while faith might give comfort without achievement. Hall then added this confirming statement: The first of those commandments was: God is the Eternal, Omnipotent, Immutable Wis- dom.
In fact, Mr. Pike went so far as to deify man's mind. No one would be impudent enough to suggest that man not use his mind at all. What these New Agers, Masons, Humanists, and members of the Illuminati are saying is that they wish to use the mind exclusively. That means, for those who believe that there is no God, man can have "the knowledge of good and evil," and make up his own moral code as he goes along.
For those who believe in a God, He is to have no say in the future determination of what is right or wrong. Therefore man should have the right to decide for himself in all moral, religious, political and economic decisions, whether or not there is a God.
But the truth of life is that the existing God gave man moral laws to follow, primarily in the Old Testament. These are called "moral absolutes," and spell out just what is right and wrong. According to these individuals and organizations, man has the right to ignore these teachings, and to decide for himself what is right and wrong.
This new "morality" is not new. It is as old as man him- self. The Bible teaches that man decided to eat the "fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil," and that is what these organizations have done. Where these decisions of men's "reason" leads mankind will he discussed later in this material.
But it is possible to know what the God of the Bible thinks about these decisions. Proverbs 1: The Humanists, New Agers, Communists and the Masons say that wisdom springs solely from the mind of man, and that man's mind teaches that he can become a god himself, having the ability to decide for himself in all things.
And Proverbs 3: And mankind has had to pay for their impudence. And this is the progression that is taught by history. Albert Mackey wrote: Next you're in the light. This is the explanation he received: We would translate it 'of light.
The publishing company, how- ever was called at first the Lucifer Publishing Com- pany as authored by H. Lucifer as here used means 'bringer of light or the morning star' and has no connection whatsoever with Satan as conventional wisdom would have it.
Only one can correctly be what they both claim to be. But the Lucis Trust attempted to make an important dis- tinction between Lucifer and Satan, one that should be made again at this juncture. Lucifer was the name of the being that was in heaven with the God of the Bible, until he rebelled. He was punished and sent to earth, where it appears that his name was changed to Satan.
These New Agers, some of the Masons, and members of the Illuminati worship the being that was in heaven before he fell, not the being known as Satan. Pike says that this light-bringer is a god; in fact he capitalizes the "s" and the "b" in "Supreme Being. Those who are opposed to the Masons and what they stand for are told that they are "Sons of Darkness. Mackenzie capitalizes the word, then "Darkness" is also a god. At least this Mason recognizes that there are two gods in the universe: The evidence that other Masons are aware of this distinction will be offered later in this study.
The particular one used in the following reference was pub- lished in Here the writer was moved to comment: Its breadth of meaning has not been understood. These are the true Craftsmen who are followers of the light in every deed; they are pledged to oppose whatever is of darkness, ignorance and sin; they have entered upon that illumined way which leadeth to God and to heaven, and they may rightly be called 'Sons of Light.
In this respect Masonry but maintains the symbolism which has found general acceptance. God may be said to reveal himself in the light. He dwelleth in light inacces- sible — yet he reveals himself to give knowledge to the minds of men, while by the illumination of his presence and his truth he imparts to the human world a condition of true spiritual life In that condition of primeval chaos, there was an entire absence of light.
Then it was the Spirit of God manifested itself as the great quickening principle of a new order, commu- nicating light and life to the hitherto desolate and disordered creation. It conveys a far more recondite [defined as being beyond the grasp of the ordinary mind] meaning that it is believed to possess by the generality of readers.
Light will finally overcome Darkness. And the student can know for certain who that is, because one of the greatest "seekers of light" has told the world.
Pike identified the "light-bearer" on page of that book: Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light? Doubt it not! He has now admitted that the "Light-bearer" is Lucifer! The Masons ask for "Light" from the "Light-bearer" Lucifer! But Mr. Pike is not the only Mason who has admitted that in easily understandable language.
Another Masonic writer is Manly P. This is that com- ment, as found on page 48 of his book: The god of some of the Masons is Lucifer! There can be no doubt, because some of the best known Masonic writers have told the reader in their own words! Hall added this comment on page 55 of the same book: He stands before the glowing fire light [the sun?
Through him passes Hydra, the great snake [Lu- cifer?
His [Hydra's, the great snake's? So that quote from Mr. Hall's book confirms that the Mason is the intermediary between the sun-god and man. And through him passes the truth of the sun-god. Simply stated, once again, Lucifer is the god of some of the Masons! The Bible has made it clear that Lucifer entered the body of a snake when he approached Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
So, the Masons believe that "Light," the emanations from their god Lucifer, will finally overcome the truth given to man by God inside the Bible.
Still Masonry marches steadily onward toward that Light that shines in the great distance [the coming New World Order, still perceived as being many years in the future] the Light of that day when Evil [this "Evil" will be identified later in this study,] overcome and vanquished, shall fade away and disap- pear forever, and Life and Light be the one law of the universe, and its eternal harmony. Pike tells the careful reader that the "Light" that all Masons seek is the true knowledge of the real god.
And then he tells the world that Lucifer is the real god of the universe. The final secret of the Masons is no longer a secret! The student of the Masons can know that the great secret that the Adept Masons are keeping from the Initiate Masons is that the concealed God of the Masonic Lodge is Lucifer, the "light-bearer! The name of this individual has been recorded in the New Testament, and it was written down by the disci- ple John, in about 80 A. He was an eye witness to many of the events in the New Testament, and he was moved to write the following, in John 8: The battle lines are indeed drawn, and have been for many centuries.
All are working to insure a victory for their side in the war. It is obvious that the sun rises in the east, and sets in the west. The Masons know that it is in the direction known as the east where the physical sun rises each day.
Pike indicated that it is in the eastern part of their Lodge that their Worshipful Master, their equivalent of the President, sits. According to him, the Master sits in the east for a reason: Mackey also wrote about the relationship of the place of the Master's location, and the east: The Masons know this, so they place their Worshipful Master in that area, and then conceal the reasons why they have done so from their fellow Masons.
The significance of this fact will become clear in further chapters of this study. For instance, Albert Mackey wrote rule "Osirus was the sun Osirus was no exception. The Masons are aware of this penchant for temple building as a place for god worship. There is now a growing body of evidence to support that claim. But, it is important to set the stage for that conclusion first by examining that evidence. The author would like to make a few comments at this juncture.
It is not my purpose to convince the reader that these comments about the purpose of the pyramid are correct.
I am only attempting to convince you that these sun-worship- pers consider them to be true. And, because they do, they are making plans for our future. And those plans should concern each reader of this material because, as I am attempting to point out, the overall changes they are arranging are going to alter the very way all of us live our lives.
And, I for one, do not care for the plans being made. There are some who claim that the pyramid was con- structed about six thousand years ago, and not about three thousand years ago as most archaeologists believe. One who makes that claim is Richard W. Noone's book is not about pyra- mids as such, but about his claims that massive changes will occur on the earth on that date in the year due to a change in the alignment of five planets near to the earth.
This will not be the place to comment on his charges. However, he has done considerable research into the pyra- mids as part of his studies. He has pointed out that the word for "pyramid" in an- cient Egypt was "glorious light," once again connecting the pyramid with the sun and the sun-god Osiris.
Hall stated that he too believed that the pyra- mid was constructed for some purpose other than for the bur- ial of a pharaoh. The name, according to Mr.
Noone that there is only one prophecy" that should be examined, and it is this one: This line measured 6, inches. This meets with a passageway, going up into the pyra- mid, called, obviously, the Ascending Passage, at the end of which are several rooms. So, here the author is describing a line down the Grand Gallery, through the ground under the pyramid, where it meets with a line coming down the outside of the pyramid.
The line, from the point where these two lines meet, back up the inside line, and where it meets the rooms at the top of the passageway, measures 6, inches. The significance of this measurement will be explained in some of the following paragraphs.
The important thing to no- tice here is that this inch line is truly hidden: It is hidden under ground with no ap- parent existence.
It is truly a hidden prediction. Rose Edith Crowley [his wife] asked her husband to perform a magical ritual Also revealed to Crowley was that the religion of the New Age could not take its place until the old religion [presumably Christianity] was smashed. One of the proofs that the pyramid was not constructed as a burial chamber is the fact that both of the two large rooms inside the pyramid, the so-called "King's chamber" and the "Queen's chamber," have vent ducts leading from inside the rooms to the outside of the pyramid.
This had led many to believe that the ducts were meant to provide air for hu- man occupants. Some of these writers have expressed their opinions in the books that they have written. One of these is Wilfred Gregson, an architect and a 33rd degree Mason, who wrote this: You can't exist very long breathing stagnant air. So my principle is that this was a temple of initiation. Hall, a fellow Mason, agreed with Mr. Gregson, when he wrote this comment: Continuous ventilation would have inevitably re- sulted in not only the putrefaction of the mummy, but also the rapid destruction of all the funerary furniture indispenable to the deceased for his life to the beyond.
Noone connected the great pyramid in Egypt with the symbolism of the pyramid in Mexico, called the Pyramid at Chichen-Itza: This needs little explanation. The sun representing 'God' and the serpent 'His Divine Wisdom,' holds man's head so that he can neither see the serpent 'Divine Wisdom,' nor the Light of God from which it comes. Noone is saying that the serpent is attempting to keep man from understanding that the god was Lucifer, in the form of a sun burst.
But there is another mystery concealed inside the Great Pyramid that must be explored. The pyramid appears to have been built to memorialize the explosion of a great star 4, years ago. Noone says: The Great Pyramid's Grand Gallery is focused at this particular spot in the earth's southern sky. Noone discussed the research being done to locate the spot in the universe where the Grand Gallery is pointed. Hewish began to track a mysterious rhythmic series of pulses, clearly from a point in the earth's southern ,..
Noone pointed out that Dr. These three stars are located in the earth's southern sky and unknown to Michanowsky at the time were being tracked by Anthony Hewish. The remarkably accurate star catalogue now stated that the blazing star that had exploded within the triangle would again be seen by man in 6, years. Noone then asked the question: But according true calendar date should be written A. Valentine wrote: MAN'S " But what happens after the 6, years?
What is next? So, it appears that sometime in the near future, the New Agers are going to see the beginning of the millennium reign of Lord Maitreya. This position was confirmed by the Lucis Trust, also a New Age organization, when it wrote the following in a quar- terly newsletter for the third quarter, It marks the end of a volatile millennium which has seen enormous progress and change But more importantly, the year stands as a symbolic portal through which humanity can pass in- to a New Age And it is coming by the year And it is called The New Age.
Or The New World Order. Previous chapters have examined two of the major Masonic symbols, the star and the sun. Other Masonic symbols need to be ex- amined as well. One of these symbols is the obelisk. The word is defined by a dictionary as a tall, four-sided stone pillar tapering toward its pyramidal top. There are three of major importance in the world today: The first major obelisk is in St. Peter's square in Rome, Italy, and is placed in such a way that every Pope who ad- dresses any crowd in the square, must face the obelisk.
The Masons have told the readers of one of its publica- tions that this obelisk was quarried: It is a representation of the God Ra, or the sun. The third major obelisk is the Washington monument, which was constructed to honor George Washington, the first President of the United States. President Washington was an active and public member of the Masonic Lodge.
