Secret Societies

“Beneath the broad tides of human history there flow the stealthy undercurrents of the secret societies, which frequently determine in the depth the changes that take place upon the surface.” — Author Arthur Edward Waite

From the earliest times of recorded history, we find that secret societies are a natural and integral part of human civilization. What we mean by a “secret society” is one whose meetings are not open to the general public, and whose
written documents are kept confidential to some extent. Secret societies are often organized hierarchically, with ultimate decision-making power vested in a single individual. Outside of a secretive core group, a secret society may have a much larger hierarchical structure which operates very openly and which produces abundant documentation of its broader operations. Our hypothesis is that these secret societies can operate as a mechanism for filtering and selecting psychopathic individuals to carry out the conspiratorial goals of a society and its leadership.

Many modern governments have an intelligence service which operates as a “secret society” whose covert operations are hidden from the public, and which produces a great torrent of highly classified (and unclassified) documentation. Examples would include the American CIA, the Israeli Mossad, the KGB of the former Soviet Union, the British MI-6, and so forth. Similarly, nearly all corporations are organized as secret societies, with operative decision-making vested in a hierarchical management group (CEO, vice-presidents, corporate secretaries , etc.) and boards of directors, who design business strategies in confidential meetings whose results are zealously guarded as trade secrets. (However, since the 1929 fiasco the SEC and public investors have required some disclosure of financial results. These disclosure requirements have now been effectively voided for the most part, as shown by the Enron affair.) Read More...

Possibly the most prototypical examples of secret societies are known as the “mystery religions” or “occult societies” These are religions which attempt (with varying degrees of success) to make secrets out of their central doctrines as well as their procedures and meetings. Examples include the Illuminati (and derivative organizations such as the Skull and Bones, Thule Society, Rosicrucians and so forth), the medieval Knights Templar, the Roman Catholic Jesuits, and Opus Dei, the Assassins, and some other sects of Ismaili (Aga Khan) Muslims, the Essenes and other Hebrew mystery cults, and ancient Roman Mithraism.

The names of the deities of any particular occult society may vary from time to time and place to place, the underlying motifs and archetypes are generally similar, and closely related to the pantheistic astral and tribal paganism of ancient Mesopotamia. This is the worship of Mithra (the Sun), Sin (the Moon) and Lucifer. Venus, along with Ahura Mazda or Yahweh (the Great Architect of the Universe?) and Moloch and Baal, the tribal consorts of the astral gods. Modern apologists for Freemasons and other occult secret societies argue that these ancient pagan gods are correctly interpreted today as benevolent and altruistic symbols. However, in ancient history these same gods were portrayed as jealous and angry gods, actually psychopathic gods, who would lie and kill without remorse in the pursuit of ultimate and eternal power, and who demanded the aroma of human sacrifice. In their choice to preserve and venerate the memory of the psychopathic gods of ancient Mesopotamia, are modern psychopathic elites also revealing something about themselves?

The most important of all of these ancient groups is the Brotherhood of the Snake, or Dragon, and was simply known as the Mysteries. The snake and dragon are symbols that represent wisdom. The father of wisdom is Lucifer, also called the Light Bearer. The focus of worship for the Mysteries was Osiris, the name of a bright star that the ancients believed had been cast down onto the earth. The literal meaning of Lucifer is “bringer of light” or “the morning star.” After Osiris was gone from the sky, the ancients saw the Sun as the representation of Osiris (“…it is claimed that, after Lucifer fell from Heaven, he brought with him the power of thinking as a gift for mankind.” Fred Gittings, Symbolism in Occult Art)

In the cases of ancient Babylon, Sumeria and Egypt, these civilizations were dominated and ruled by families and men who had not only taken secret Luciferian oaths, but also through these oaths they obtained arcane knowledge, mathematics, science, technology and various other teachings that originated from Lucifer. Additionally, they were educated in manners and techniques in manipulating masses of people, in the human psyche, and taught how to predict and redirect the reactions and choices of the people.

Lucifer teaches and divulges divine sciences to men willing to bind themselves to him. Instead of the human race being provided these things by Almighty God in the manner and time of His choosing, Lucifer empowers these men to consider themselves superior to other humans and to set themselves up as pillars of wisdom and intellect. Some truths have been stolen from those whom the Lord has revealed certain truths, by aspiring men who Satan has tempted to use for their own advance and glorification. Ceremonies of the occult are a mockery of the sacred ordinances and covenants of the Lord and those who serve him. God creates, Satan imitates!

Those who are initiated into these groups by blood oaths, and who obtain such secret teachings, refer to themselves as adepts, or experts. They consider themselves capable and worthy enough to be entrusted with and utilize this knowledge and power. They see themselves as highly elite beings, far beyond their lowly human peers. They refer to themselves as illuminated or illumined, the natural leaders and shepherds of the masses. (As a side note, this is a deeply esoteric word. The reader ought to realize that any usage of it in modern times is never accidental nor arbitrary. It always carries arcane significance.) They also refer to themselves as the “Guardians of the Secrets of the Ages.” 

All those who were not initiates were considered lesser forms of life than they themselves, no better than beasts of burden who are easily manipulated with a bit of money, or lying, or flattery, or semblance of power  (such as public office or academic recognition), or stoking of pride. All suchpersons were (and still are) referred to as “profane.” These people are suckered, duped, fooled, and otherwise coaxed into wittingly or unwittingly carrying out the will and agenda of the initiates.

The adage “knowledge is power” is incredibly true, and such adepts understood that to disseminate any secret knowledge and teachings to the profane would be akin to surrendering their power and influence over them. Due to their highly sensitive nature, these teachings were rarely, if ever, written down, despite these civilizations possessing systems of writing. Formal and elaborate ceremonies (and, in some cases, rigorous tests) were established to initiate and teach individuals they considered worthy enough to join their ranks. A highly involved system of training and tutoring was established to progress members to higher levels (or degrees) of “illumination,” and also to pass on profoundly hidden knowledge they referred to as “mysteries”. These secret occult teachings and works, and the educational system in which they were passed on have generally been referred to throughout history as the “Mystery Schools.”

Throughout history, within every single nation and culture, there has been the establishment of at least one mystery school. In every known instance, even down to today, these mystery schools have been branches of other schools. In their own admissions, and revealed in their writings of their practices, philosophies, doctrine, worship, and ceremonies – all of them are traceable back to ancient Egypt and beyond, to Babylon and before the Great Flood. These schools are, in fact, deeply religious in structure and organization,with strict established roles, hierarchies and duties of members. They are nothing short of branches of an unseen religion – literally the Church of  Lucifer.

To the Illuminati Lucifer, or Satan (they are the same thing)—is good.  Philosophically, religiously, whatever—it doesn’t matter.  Lucifer is good to them.  Lucifer is symbolically the savior because of the forbidden knowledge, self-awareness, and intellectual reasoning he (figuratively, metaphorically, or literally) gives humans with the ability to think rationally and this elevates them to a God among all other animals on earth.

The religion of secret societies, the Luciferian doctrine, lies at the core of all these secret mystery schools – and since the times of ancient Egypt and Babylon, it has been referred to (even amongst themselves) as “Mystery Babylon.” As recorded by John, the Beloved:

“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

“So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

“And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.”

One can’t help but wonder if the comma between Mystery and Babylon was erroneously added by translators or transcribers. “The inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk.” We are all drunk – all of us. We are in a perpetual stupor under the influence of Mystery Babylon and its master, “Satan, which deceiveth the whole world” (Rev. 12:9)

It is important to gain a full comprehension behind the concepts of the terms esoteric and exoteric. They are defined as follows by multiple established and authoritative sources:

  • Exoteric – 1) suitable for or communicated to the general public. 2) not belonging, limited, or pertaining to the inner or select circle, as of disciples or intimates. 3) popular; simple; commonplace. 4) pertaining to the outside; exterior; external. Origin: Late Latin exōtericus. Refers to knowledge that is outside of and independent from anyone’s experience; can be ascertained by anyone. Relates to “external reality” as opposed to one’s own thoughts or feelings. Knowledge that is public as opposed to secret or cabalistic. It is not required that exoteric knowledge come easily or automatically, but it should be reproducible and able to be referenced. Antonym: esoteric.
  • Esoteric – 1) understood by or meant for only the select few who have special knowledge or interest; recondite: poetry full of esoteric allusions. 2) belonging to the select few 3) private; secret; confidential 4) (of a philosophical doctrine or the like) intended to be revealed only to the initiates of a group (example: the esoteric doctrines of Pythagoras.) Origin: Greek esōterikós. Synonyms: abstruse, arcane, cryptic, enigmatic. That which is preserved or understood by a small group or those specially initiated.

In order for the mystery schools to keep secret knowledge hidden from the uninitiated, yet perceivable and fully understandable to the initiated and adepts, everything has both an esoteric and exoteric interpretation.

The general public, the “profane,” are fed the exoteric, the myths, the sometimes bizarre or disjointed stories of gods and heroes, and are given various simplistic (sometimes even insulting to one’s intelligence) explanations to the symbols and symbolism used. However, the initiates and the adepts are provided the esoteric explanations to these same symbols and myths – they are given to know exactly what the gods and heroes represent in those strange old stories. Such characters and beings often don’t actually represent any kind of person, deity or being at all – they often represent concepts, techniques or even institutions.

Therefore, symbolism becomes a major factor in the worship, religion, beliefs and communication of the adepts of mystery schools. Whatever the general public makes of these exoteric things, whatever conclusion they wish to come to about what the symbols mean, the adepts and initiates of the mystery schools don’t care. The use of arcane or strange symbolism is  merely a system with which they simultaneously cover up their actual beliefs, secret knowledge, and object of worship from the knowledge of the profane, while providing the ability to communicate the esoteric meanings with other adepts.

Symbolism is used by the Lord to provide a deeper, more visceral meaning to His teachings – such as in parables, in allegories, in visions and dreams, and in comparisons. However in Mystery Babylon, symbolism is used to create layers of deception over the actual esoteric meanings, while also being used as a manner of communicating with other initiates. The “profane” are merely given erroneous and superficial explanations to these things in order to placate or deflect them.

While the mystery schools date their traditions, rites, and worship back to the practices of ancient Babylon, and while they embrace the legends surrounding the antediluvian era and the mythic city of Atlantis, there tends to be an overwhelming emphasis on everything stemming from ancient Egypt.

Mr. Hall wrote the following in his book Freemasonry and the Ancient Egyptians, a segment of which is included in the supporting material (emphasis added):

“We are assured in the authorized version of Holy Writ [Ed. note: authorized – are there unauthorized versions not available to the public?] that the magicians of Egypt changed their staves or rods into serpents in the presence of Pharaoh. The modern scientist does not live who can duplicate that phenomenon…

“In Egypt we are dealing unquestionably with true manifestations of occult power. The learned author of Art Magic presents what may be accepted as a reasonable accurate estimation of the priest-magicians of the old Egyptian Mysteries.

“’They were highly educated, scientific men. They understood the nature of the lodestone [naturally magnetic stones], the virtues of mineral and animal magnetism, which, together with the force of psychological impression, constituted a large portion of their theurgic practices. [Note: “theurgic” is defined as “the divine or supernatural agency in human affairs” and “beneficent magic as taught and performed by Egyptian Neoplatonists and others”]

“They perfectly understood the art of reading the innermost secrets of the soul, of impressing the susceptible imagination by enchantment and fascination, of sending their own spirits forth from their body which many modern metaphysical teachers claim that they can do, as clairvoyance, under the action of powerful will – in fact, they were masters of the art now known as mesmerism,  clairvoyance, electro-biology, etc. They also realized the virtues of magnets, gums, herbs, drugs and fumigations, and employed music to admirable effect….

“The highly gifted Egyptologist Lenormant acknowledges Egyptian magic as an essential part of their  religious philosophy. James Bonwick, F.R.G.S., thus summarizes the powers possessed by Egyptian adepts:

“’Egyptian mystics could levitate, walk the air, handle fire, live under water, sustain great pressure, harmlessly suffer mutilation, read the past, foretell the future, make themselves invisible and cure disease.’”

The fabled Egyptian gods (Zeus, Poseiden, Hades, Aphrodite, etc.) are exoteric for the uninitiated masses, not esoteric. The secret societies gods are Osiris, Isis, and Horus. In  Manly P. Hall’s book Freemasonry of
the Ancient Egyptians, he states:

“The fable of Isis and Osiris, as it has descended to us in the account given by Plutarch has not been greatly amplified by any modern research. The Egyptian fragments which have been translated in recent years offer no complete account of the birth, life, death and resurrection of Osiris, nor has any new key been found to unlock this great drama which may well be termed “The Passion Play of Egypt. ” It is not our intention to perpetuate Plutarch’s account merely for its outward appearance but rather, from the same motive that inspired Synesius, Platonic philosopher and Christian bishop, to compile his account of the same fabulous history. Synesius in his treatise On Providence thus introduces the Osirian myth:

“This fable is Egyptian. The Egyptians transcend in wisdom. Perhaps therefore this also being a fable, obscurely signifies something more than a fable, because it is Egyptian. If, however, it is not a fable, but a sacred discourse, it will deserve in a still greater degree to be told, and committed to writing.”

“In presenting a summary of Plutarch’s account [I am omitting] nothing which could in anyway be regarded as relevant. [I am taking] the liberty,  however, of somewhat expanding the fable by  incorporating therein some small fragments derived from other Greek writers and occasionally a few words bearing upon the account from fragments from Egyptian religious literature. The story then is in substance as follows:

“The goddess Nut, whom Plutarch identifies with Rhea [one of the titans in Greek mythology], was the daughter of Shu and Tefnut. She is the wife of Seb and the mother of Ra. If we are to trust Plutarch, she afterwards becomes the wife of Ra, or the sun. Nut is unfaithful to Ra who, discovering that she is with child by Seb, pronounces a curse upon her that she should not be delivered of her progeny in any month or year. 

“Thoth (Hermes or Mercury), who is also in love with Nut, comes to her assistance with a stratagem. He plays at tables with the moon-goddess (Selene) and wins from her the seventieth part of each of her illuminations, and joining these parts together he forms of them five days which he adds to the calendar; previous to that time the Egyptian year consisted of three hundred and sixty days [Ed. note: the number of degrees in a circle].

“These five days, being not part of any month or year, Ra was outwitted. Upon these days Nut brought forth her five children at different times and different places. Upon the first of these days she brought  forth Osiris and the place of his birth, according to Diodorus was Mount Nissa, in Arabia the Happy. (Mount Nissa is now Mount Sinai.)

“At the moment of the birth of Osiris a voice sounded throughout the world saying, “The Lord of all the  earth is born.” On the second day Nut gave birth to Aroueris, the elder Horus; on the third day, Typhon or Set; on the fourth day, Isis; and on the fifth and last day, Nephthys. The Egyptians, therefore, regard the five days which they termed the Epact or super-added, as the birthdays of the gods, especially venerating the fourth of them, upon which the benevolent goddess Isis came into being.

“Plutarch further on announces that the five children of Nut were not all of the same father, thus contradicting his earlier statement. He says that Osiris and the elder Horus were the children of Ra, that Isis was the daughter of Thoth, and only Typhon and Nephthys were actually the offspring of Seb. There is another and even more recondite legend regarding the elder Horus which denies him the fathership of Ra, declaring him to be the offspring of Osiris and Isis while they were still in the womb of Nut. These accounts we shall consider later.

“Osiris was given to Pamyles to be educated, and having come to the years of majority, became the king of Egypt. In this high capacity Osiris applied himself to the civilizing of his nation, turning the Egyptians from their previously indigent and barbarous course of life to a happy and community existence. He taught them agriculture, compiled for them a body of laws for the regulation of conduct, instructed them in the reverencing in worship of the gods, thus establishing Egypt in all the essentials of truth. Having brought his own nation to prosperity andenlightenment, Osiris traveled over the rest of the world, converting peoples to his discipline, not by force but through persuasion of reason.  Osiris was accompanied on this journey by a procession of nymphs and other superphysical beings who filled the air with music and song.

“In the meantime Typhon, brother or half-brother of Osiris, had ambition to usurp the throne, but the vigilant Isis, sister-wife of Osiris, was too watchful. Typhon, however, having persuaded seventy-two other persons to join him in his conspiracy, with the aid of a certain queen in Ethiopia named Aso, perfected a plot against Osiris. He fashioned a chest exactly to the measure of the body of Osiris which chest he caused to be brought into the banquet hall where the princes of Egypt were feasting their king’s return.

“Typhon, simulating jest, promised this elaborately ornamented box to the one whose body, upon trial, most nearly fitted it. Each of the princes in turn lay down in the box, but each was too short or too tall, until last of all Osiris himself lay down in it. Immediately the seventy-two conspirators rushed to the box, clamped the cover up on it, fastened it with nails and poured melted lead over all the cracks and crevices. After this they carried the chest to the bank of the Nile and cast it into the river where it joins the sea….

“As soon as Isis received word of this crime she cut off one of the locks of her hair and put on the mourning apparel of widowhood, for which reason the spot, where she did this, was afterwards called Coptos or the city of mourning. After donning the widow’s weeds, Isis set forth in search of her husband’s body and wandered about all Egypt, asking all with whom she came in contact. Finally some children, who had been play, told her that they’ve seen the accomplices of Typhon carrying the chest to the Nile; for that reason Egyptians regard the words of children as oracular and pay great attention to them.

“While Isis was searching for her husband’s body she learned that Nephthys, her sister, had by magic insinuated herself into the presence of Osiris before his death and in the guise of Isis had conceived a son from him. Isis sought out the child which Nephthys had deserted for fear of Typhon’s anger, and adopting it, attached it to her person as a constant guard and attendant. This was Anubis, the dog-headed god who appears in the Book of the Dead.

“Isis learned that the chest had been carried by the sea to the coast of  Byblos [Ed. note: Byblos is also the name for book or Bible], where it had lodged in the branches of a bush of tamarisk which had grown up miraculously about the sacred receptacle and concealed it within its trunk. The king of Byblos, amazed at the miracle, caused the tree to be cut down and from the trunk, containing the box, he made a pillar to support the roof of his palace.

“By magic Isis discovered this and, traveling immediately to Byblos, attached herself to the suite of the queen as a nurse to her children. At night, when all the palace was asleep, Isis transformed herself into a swallow and fluttered around the column, bemoaning her fate in strange, sad notes.
“In due time Isis revealed her divine nature and asked that the pillar be cut down; taking therefrom the chest, she departed with it into a desert place where she performed certain magical rites by which the body of Osiris was temporarily animated and by this animation she received from Osiris a son who was called the younger Horus, the child who was conceived of the dead.

“There is some confusion in the account at this point. Plutarch says that Isis left the body of Osiris temporarily to visit her son Horus, just mentioned, but the context of the fable would rather call for her departure to a secluded place where the child could be born without the knowledge of Typhon who certainly would have destroyed him. Isis hid the chest in a remote and unfrequented place but Typhon, hunting one night by the light of the moon, chanced upon it. Knowing its contents and realizing Isis to be proficient in magic, he resolved to thwart her purposes, and tearing the body into fourteen parts, he scattered them over Egypt.

“From the inscriptions on the Metternich Stele [Ed. note: a “stele” is a metal, stone or wooden slab, generally taller than it is wide, erected for funerals or commemorative purposes. A tombstone would be considered a stele.2] it seems that Set [Typhon] must have imprisoned Isis and her son Horus. The goddess is made to say, “I am Isis, and I came forth from the house wherein my brother Set has placed me.”

“Thoth, the “Prince of Law,” again came to her assistance, and aided Isis to escape from the house ([or was it really a] prison?) [Ed. note: or, could it have been the House of Set/Typhon?]. Thoth, also, at this time, prophesied that Horus would sit upon the throne of his father and rule the double empire of Egypt. Upon the advice of Thoth, Isis hides the child in a papyrus swamp, thus saving him from the wrath of Set.

“Isis, returning, having left her son at Butos, and fashioning a magical boat out of papyrus, traversed the whole of the empire. As she met with the scattered parts of her husband, she buried each one separately, first, however, encasing it in a magical mummy composed of wax, incense, and grain seed.

“She finally recovered all of the parts of Osiris except the phallus [i.e. – the penis] which had been thrown into the river and devoured by three fishes. [Ed. note: keep the three fishes in mind.] This organ Isis reproduced in gold and having performed all of the ceremonies necessary to insure the life of Osiris in the underworld, she returned to her son Horus and by the theurgic arts, of [which] she was mistress, saved him from death from the stings of scorpions.

“Horus, having grown to man’s estate, and having received from his mother the tradition of his  father’s murder, longed to avenge the evil deed. Osiris appeared to his son in a vision, instructing him in the means by which he could overcome the hosts of Typhon. We are led to infer that Horus gathered about him an army which, meeting the hosts of Typhon, battled with them for many days, achieving victory.

“Typhon was taken prisoner and turned over to the custody of Isis. Isis, being his sister, could not [bring herself to] put him to death but set him at liberty which so incensed Horus that he laid hands upon his mother and removed from her head the insignia of royalty; thereupon Thoth gave her a new helmet made in the shape of an ox’s head. 

“Typhon next accused Horus of illegitimacy, but Thoth proves his royal descent. Typhon again goes into battle against Horus, in fact, two battles are mentioned in both of which Typhon is worsted, and Horus regains the kingdom of his father and is regarded, to at least a certain degree, as the actual incarnation of Osiris.

“After its resurrection in the underworld, the shade of Osiris visits Isis and in consequence thereof she gives birth to another son, as it were, by a Holy Ghost, for she knew no living man. This child is called Harpocrates and Plutarch says of him that he “came into the world before his time, and lame in his lower limbs. ”

“Harpocrates is usually depicted as a [youthful] nude figure, his head adorned with a single curling lock of hair on the right side, this being with the Egyptians a symbol of youth or adolescence. He is sometimes depicted with an elaborate plumed headdress or wearing the double crown of the northern and southern empires. His finger is placed to his lips which Plutarch interprets as a gesture symbolic of his childish and helpless state. The Greeks and Romans, however, considered this gesture to be a symbol for silence and from this has arisen the custom of placing the finger to the lips as a motion for quietness and secrecy. [Ed. note: this ancient gesture is used by just about everyone in every culture in the world today – putting one’s index finger over one’s lips to signal someone to be quiet.] Statues of the god Harpocrates were placed at the entrances to temples and sacred retreats where the dramas of the Mysteries were performed as a sign that silence and secrecy should be observed in the holy places and that all Initiates were bound by vows of discretion.

“Harpocrates is sometimes shown standing, and another times he is depicted seated on a blossom of a lotus [Ed. note: similar to how the Buddha is typically portrayed.] Although he is usually figured with childish immaturity of body, the imperfection of his lower limbs, as described by Plutarch, is not apparent in any of the Egyptian drawings. It, therefore, seems that the statements concerning this  deformity should be more carefully examined. Samuel Squire, whose translation of Plutarch’s Isis and Osiris, made in 1744, is still the most often quoted by Egyptologists, states definitely, “lame in his lower limbs. ” G.R.S. Mead translated the same  essay much later and gives a slightly different rendering of Plutarch’s words. Mr. Mead says: “weak in his limbs from below upwards. ” This difference in wording, though slight, may have an unexpected significance….”

Hall goes on to explain that Osiris represents the otherworldly-delivered doctrine of the mystery schools, or, as it is referred to in Judeo-Christian literature, Mystery Babylon. Isis represents the priesthood of Mystery Babylon: “the temporal orderof the priesthood, the accumulative body of Initiates.”  Hall even provides an unmistakable Christian comparison: as the “bride”of Christ represents Christ’s Church as a whole (i.e. those who have been baptized and taken upon themselves the name of Christ, covenanting to  serve Him), Isis represents the collective body of Mystery Babylon’s initiates (i.e. those who have undertaken the rites and oaths and vows of secrecy, covenanting to serve, obey and be perfectly loyal to his superior officer, without exception). The mystery schools refer to her as “the great Mother, the consort of heaven”.

Typhon is Jesus Christ. Nephthys represents the Kingdom of God on the earth. “Typhon lured Osiris in to the ark of destruction.” Christ cast down Lucifer. “[Typhon] undoes all good things and inevitably presages ruin.” All the  machinations and lies of Lucifer and his followers inevitably come to naught; their conspiring works exposed and decimated. “He is the power of the physical universe which is constantly seeking to destroy the spiritual values locked within its substances.” The Light of Christ, the conscience imbued within the soul of every human born on this earth, constantly seeks to persuade mankind to forgo pride for empathy; guides to overcome the temptations of evil spirits, to which all flesh is prone.

At a later point, Mr. Hall introduces a critical concept while elaborating on the writings of Synesius concerning the ceremony of Osiris’ election  (emphasis added):

“… Osiris receives from his father an elaborate dissertation in the Platonic temper concerning the relative power of good and evil in which he is fully warned against the machinations of Typhon. Possibly the most important sentence in Synesius’s treatise occurs during this dissertation. The father of Osiris is made to say to his son: “You also have been initiated in those Mysteries in which there are two pair of eyes, and it is requisite that the pair which are beneath should be closed when the pair that are above them perceive, and when the pair above are closed, those which are beneath should be opened.””

The “two pairs of eyes” represents incorporating two completely different personas or mindsets – one is for the public, for the outside world,  for the “profane” to witness; the other is strictly private, for the  esoteric realm, the world of mystery school initiates.

“The pair which are beneath should be closed when the pair that are above them perceive” refers to the initiate psychologically shutting out anything and everything which harkens back to the esoteric realm while in the “profane” public world. The profane must never glimpse nor suspect that there is anything beyond the public persona one presents to them. The initiate must convince all others, even close friends and relatives, that this public persona is everything there is to know about him.

The mythology of Osiris, Isis and Horus is the core doctrine at the heart of all the mystery schools. It is the essence of their symbology, fraternal theology and worship. Everything is traced back to the arcane and occult of Egypt. Their modern beliefs, rites and worship all relate to this. Egyptian and Greek symbolic and mythological themes occur repeatedly in the modern mystery schools, and are incorporated in their priestcrafts and rites.

Realize that all of this is the inverse of true Christianity, the fullness of the Gospel. In the core doctrine of the mystery schools, everything “good,”especially the human intellect, is either embodied in or emanates from Lucifer. Everything they describe as “good” is sin by Christian standards, and all of mankind’s blessings are credited to Lucifer. That which the mystery schools describe as “evil” (and all that which is truly evil) is credited to Jesus Christ – as well as anything that glorifies Him. See Isaiah 5:20 –  “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

For those of us who have a testimony of Christ – and who understand correct, plain and precious, uncorrupted doctrine – it is possible to increasingly discern that that which lies beneath the multiple layers of exoteric symbology is nothing more than an inversion of Christ’s Gospel. It is a rewrite of celestial events, pitting Lucifer as a betrayed, unjustly imprisoned deity – seeking merely to raise all of mankind from the lowliness of ignorant peasantry to the pinnacle that the dormant intellect of man can achieve – against a malevolent, suppressive Jehovah, who permits the existence of squalor, ignorance, stupidity, anarchy and every form of unadulterated evil – who is (supposedly) willing to indefinitely condemn all but the few who submit their will and intellect to Him.

This is what lies at the very heart of all non-truly-Christian theologies. All other religions on earth – including all fraternities and secular creeds – have perpetuated, disseminated or branched off from the ancient mystery schools.

There is a definite line of demarcation of that which is visible/accessible to the general public (non-initiates, or “the profane” as they refer to us). All knowledge, symbolic meanings, as well as buildings and structures accessible to the “profane” are above this line. All such is considered exoteric – the exoteric realm. All that resides below the exoteric realm, below the line of demarcation, is the esoteric realm – that which much be kept secret and the “profane” barred from entering, from experiencing, even from knowing about. Recall the following concept covered in the previous chapter:

“You also have been initiated in those Mysteries in which there are two pair of eyes, and it is requisite that the pair which are beneath should be closed when the pair that are above them perceive, and when the pair above are closed, those which are beneath should be opened.”

The “pair of eyes that are above” refers to the public persona of the initiate. This is what is presented to the outside/exoteric world, while “the pair of eyes beneath” – the esoteric persona of the initiate – is shut off. Once in private, or upon setting foot in an esoteric environment, the “eyes above” can be shut (i.e. the public persona dismissed) and the “eyes beneath” can open (i.e. the true nature/personality of the initiate can come forth).

The layer of hierarchy directly below the line of demarcation consists of the secret societies / combinations that covertly lead, manipulate, infiltrate, and/or direct the accompanying exoteric organizations. Those who initiate into these groups take unmistakable blood oaths that bind their service and loyalty to them, as well as absolute secrecy on penalty of death. Some initiations require shedding innocent blood (i.e. taking the life of an innocent human being, often a child), and often requires consumption of the blood and/or flesh of the victim as part of their binding oath. The majority of these initiates have little to no information regarding the managing layer directly succeeding them, as signified in the diagram’s “Buffer of Awareness.” All such initiates are only instructed or informed on a need-to-know basis by their leaders. Such leaders are usually the only ones connected to the successive layer of hierarchy, or who know anything about it.

The final division of hierarchy is the separation between the physical realm on this earth (i.e. all that we are able to process and know of through our five senses), and the realm of spirits where Lucifer and his minions reside. He provides revelation, guidance and direction to those who make up the hierarchic levels at the pinnacle of his kingdom.

Demons (the third that followed Satan and were cast down to Earth where they have no body of flesh and bone, but can enter portals into human bodies that have succumbed to evil – see Satanism) need the strong energy created in blood rituals in order to materialize. But once the ritual ends, they must go. More stable contact can only be achieved through portals. Permanent portals are the main objective of Satanists (they like to be called children of Lucifér, with stress in the last syllable). According to Mastral, there are 90 of them, and 72 have been opened by the turn of the century. Nine more had been opened by 2006 and the last the last nine were apparently in 2013. The exact conditions for the openings of these portals are known only to few witches of the highest rank. We can expect that they require huge amounts of human sacrifice and psychic energy. A great honor given to a Satanists is to be able to pass through one of these portals and meet demonic powers in their “home turf”. In this process, there is a temporal shift, with minutes on Earth meaning hours in the other plane (much like what happens in “alien” abductions). Satan’s hope is that with the opening of the last portals, powerful demons from lower dimensions will be able to come to earth and eventually, interact with humankind. They will not present themselves as demons, but as benevolent aliens and evolved spirits of light.

In Revelations 9:1-2, John witnesses Satan turn the key to unleash the very powers of hell on an unsuspecting world. Satan’s intent is to destroy the earth, and so too those that serve him. Previously, God has overmastered the plagues through his destroying angels, but Satan is permitted to direct operations from this point bringing the misery that fuels hell to the surface of the earth. The Greek for the KJV phrase “the key to the bottomless pit” literally translates to “the key to the shaft of the abyss,” the shaft, or portal, that leads to hell.

Corruption of Christianity

A significant portion of rumors concerning secret societies within the Catholic Church center upon the Jesuits, who are purported to function as an elite enforcement and espionage of group.

“The Society of Jesus is a Christian male religious order that follows the teachings of the Catholic Church. The members are called Jesuits and are also known colloquially as “God’s Marines” and as “The Company”, these being references to founder Ignatius of Loyola’s military background and members’ willingness to accept orders anywhere in the world and live in extreme conditions…. “The Jesuits today form the largest single religious order of priests and brothers in the Catholic Church….

“Opus Dei has been described as the most controversial force within the Catholic Church. According to several journalists who researched Opus Dei separately, most of the criticisms against Opus Dei are mere myths created by its opponents, and Opus Dei is considered a sign of contradiction. Several popes and other Catholic leaders have endorsed what they see as its innovative teaching on the sanctifying value of work, and its fidelity to Catholic beliefs. In 2002, Pope John Paul II canonized Escrivá [the founder of Opus Dei], and called him “the saint of ordinary life.”

“Controversies about Opus Dei have centered on criticisms of its alleged secretiveness, its recruiting methods, the alleged strict rules governing members, the practice by celibate members of mortification of the flesh, its alleged elitism and misogyny, the alleged right-leaning politics of most of its members, and the alleged participation by some in authoritarian or extreme right-wing governments, especially the Francoist Government of Spain until 1978. Within the Catholic Church, Opus Dei is also criticized for allegedly seeking independence and more influence….

“Much public attention has focused on Opus Dei’s practice of mortification — the voluntary offering up of discomfort or pain to God, this includes fasting, or in some circumstances self inflicted pain such as self flagellation. Mortification has a long history in many world religions, including the Catholic Church…. Additionally, Opus Dei celibate members practice “corporal mortifications” such as sleeping without a pillow or sleeping on the floor, fasting or remaining silent for certain hours during the day…. Critics state that self-mortification is a “startling,” “extreme,” and “questionable” practice — one that borders on masochism.””

Amazingly, there are no fewer than 132 official Catholic religious orders  or societies in existence; of which the Jesuits and Opus Dei seemingly onlyscratch the surface.3 Compelling testimony from witnesses and victims claiming Jesuit involvement in horrendous crimes against humanity is covered in Part 5 of this book. Additionally, there is a document being circulated around the Internet which purports to be a valid transcript of a Jesuit oath, for those initiated into the Knights of Columbus. The source of this oath transcript is from the U.S. Congressional Record dated February 15th, 1913 on pages 3215 and 3216. However, it was entered into the record as part of a complaint by a candidate for public office, who insisted that it is a fabrication and hoax which was being widely circulated near the time of election by his opponent. This was done in an attempt to derail his campaign and generate fear in the populace because he is a Catholic. Therefore, despite this “oath” being in the Congressional Record, it’s veracity is wholly unverifiable. The likeliness of it being unreliable and erroneous is very high.

There is one historical figure who was connected to the Jesuits, whose evil works are tremendously relevant today: Adam Weishaupt, who founded the Order of the Bavarian Illuminati on May 1st, 1776. All in all, though, the external Roman Catholic Church (that the members and the rest of the world witness each and every day) functions not unlike a decoy, an attention diversion. It is a terrifically garish veneer among the divisions of Mystery Babylon. There are plenty of credible books and resources one can locate with extensive historical accounts of the pagan roots and atrocities committed by the Catholic Church and its clergy over the centuries (not to mention the pedophilia scandals that began surfacing in the 1980’s, later to explode in number from 2001 on, resulting in numerous lawsuits, all settled out of court5).

Infiltration and Corruption of the Early Christian Church

The primary forces which brought about the apostasy of the ancient Church and the rise of the Roman Catholic Church were the infiltration and overriding influence of initiates of a variety of mystery school groups, primarily the Mystics, the Gnostics, and the Greek Philosophers. The leaders of the ancient Church strenuously tried to keep heresies that were being introduced by such wolves-in-sheep’s-clothing from corrupting sound doctrine and being adapted by the general membership. As one reads Paul’s epistles in the New Testament, addressed to the various church bodies and leaders, one can get a sense of his exasperation in keeping such false doctrines from creeping in and taking hold.

However, by the fourth century, the situation was pretty much hopeless. The apostles were dead (with the exception of John the Beloved) and none were ordained in their place. The other leaders were disagreeing amongst themselves, and eventually local bishops were recognized as authoritative, to speak for and act in behalf of the remaining organization. Many of the gifts of the Spirit had been removed from the earth. It was in this condition that the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD commenced:

“The First Council of Nicaea was a council of Christian bishops convened in Nicaea in Bithynia (present-day İznik in Turkey) by the Roman Emperor Constantine I in AD 325. This first ecumenical council was the first effort to attain consensus in the church through an assembly representing all of Christendom.

“Its main accomplishments were settlement of the Christological issue of the nature of Jesus and his relationship to God the Father, the construction of the first part of the Creed of Nicaea, settling the calculation of the date of Easter, and promulgation of early canon law.

“The First Council of Nicaea is the first ecumenical council of the catholic Church. Most significantly, it resulted in the first, extra-biblical, uniform Christian doctrine, called the Creed of Nicaea. With the creation of the creed, a precedent was established for subsequent local and regional councils of Bishops (Synods) to create statements of belief and canons of doctrinal orthodoxy— the intent being to define unity of beliefs for the whole of Christendom.

“The council did not create the doctrine of the deity of Christ (as is sometimes claimed) but it did settle, to some degree, the debate within the Early Christian communities regarding the divinity of Christ. This idea of the divinity of Christ, along with the idea of Christ as a messenger from God (The Father), had long existed in various parts of the Roman empire. The divinity of Christ had also been widely endorsed by the Christian community in the otherwise pagan city of Rome.”

St. Augustine and the End of the Ancient Church of Christ

One of the greatest resources available that gives a thorough and concise historical synopsis of the erosion of the ancient Church which Christ and the original apostles founded is contained in the works of Hugh Nibley – specifically his book The World and the Prophets and his collection of radio lectures given in the early 1950’s, titled Time Vindicates the Prophets. In one particular chapter of The World and the Prophets, Nibley focuses on St. Augustine and his significant role in creating a formal dogma that melds together the teachings of Christ with the pagan beliefs and exoteric spiritual arguments of the Greek schools. The following are segments of this chapter (emphasis added):

“Catholic and Protestant authorities vie in proclaiming their incalculable debt to St. Augustine, the man “who laid the foundation of Western culture” (Seeberg), “who stands between the ancient world and the Middle Ages as the first great constructive thinker of the Western Church, and the father of medieval Catholicism” (Raby), “dominating like a pyramid antiquity and succeeding ages—among theologians he is undeniably the first, and such has been his influence that none of the Fathers, Scholastics or Reformers has surpassed it” (Schaff), “the greatest doctor of the Church” (Lot), “the true creator of Western theology” (Grabmann), “in whom, in a very real sense… medieval thought begins and ends” (Coulton). “His philosophic-historical work remains one of the most imposing creations of all time; it posits a capacity and originality of mind which none other possessed either in his own day or for a thousand years after,” wrote Eduard Norden.

“Far be it from us to pass judgment on such a man or his works: we shall consider not how St. Augustine acquitted himself in his great task, but only what that task was. From what we have already quoted, it would seem that St. Augustine’s great significance lies in the final fixing of a new orientation for the Church. “It was to him more than to any other single man,” says McGiffert, “that the spirit of classical antiquity gave way to the spirit of the Middle Ages.”

“”The Christian theology and philosophy of the Middle Ages,” according to Grabmann, perhaps the foremost authority on that subject, “is in form and content almost exclusively Augustinian until late in the 13th century,” and even then “the world-historical achievement of St. Thomas was the synthesis of Augustine and Aristotle.”

“For the medievalist Coulton, Augustine is “the man who closes ancient thought and begins medieval thought.”

“”It is he,” writes Ferdinand Lot, “who set the Church irresistibly on the course which she has followed to the modern era.”

“”Upon Augustine, Petrarch and the great masters of the Renascence [sic] formed themselves,” says Harnack, “and without him [Martin] Luther is not to be understood.

“Augustine, the founder of Roman Catholicism, is at the same time the only Father of the Church from whom Luther received any effective teaching, or whom the humanists honoured as a hero.”

“Many have called St. Augustine the first man of the modern world; the historian Troeltsch calls him the last man of the ancient. Apparently Augustine is to be respected before all things as that rarest of all humans, a founder and creator. Grabmann says he was “the true creator of the theology of the West, just as Origen8 was the founder of the speculative theology of the Orient.”

“Troeltsch also describes Augustine as continuing the work that Clement of Alexandria and Origen had undertaken two centuries before.

“The names of Origen and Augustine are often linked together, and with good reason. For each devoted his life to the same project, namely, the working out of a Christian theology which he personally could accept. We have already talked about Origen’s allegiance to the schools [of philosophy] and how it conditioned and inspired his whole effort to develop a theology that would be intellectually respectable. St. Augustine was, if anything, even more a child of the schools than Origen, who was a far more austere and independent character. For twenty years Augustine absolutely refused to accept the Christianity learned at his mother’s knee, however powerful his sentimental attachments to it, because, as he explains at great length in the Confessions, it simply could not stand up to the arguments of the schoolmen. He tells us how in his youth, after reading Cicero, he would laugh at the prophets, and how from the very first the pagan schools had taught him to abhor any suggestion that God might have a body—it was instruction like that, he says, that convinced him that the Christians could not possibly be right.

“And this is the significant point: Augustine never changed the ideas and attitudes he acquired in the schools. He did not turn away from them back to Christianity; rather he built them firmly and finally into the structure of Christianity before he would accept it. He never came around to accepting on the one hand the naive beliefs with which he charged the Christians, nor on the other hand did he ever swerve in his allegiance to the Platonists. According to Professor Grabmann, the whole explanation of Augustine’s “tremendous influence on the scholasticism and mysticism of the Middle Ages” lay in the single fact of his being “the greatest Christian Neoplatonist,” whose life’s work was “the christianizing of Neoplatonism.”
“Augustine has described as few others could the tension and agony of a  twenty-year deadlock, “a struggle within his breast,” Grabmann calls it, between the teachings of the schools and the teachings of the Christians.

In the end something had to give way—and it was the church. It was Augustine, in Lot’s words, who “set the Church irresistibly on the course” which she was to follow for the future: it was not the Church that drew Augustine into her orbit. Or rather let us say this is the classic problem of three bodies, in which the orbit of each alters and is altered by each and both of the others. Augustine, as our experts have declared, brought forth a new Christian theology when he solved the problem of which should prevail, the prophets or the philosophers, by deferring to both—uniting them into a new and wonderful synthesis which has been the object of endless scholarly panegyrics [i.e. formal or elaborate praise]. “Augustine,” wrote Reinhold Seeberg, “laid the foundation of Western culture when he fused Antique civilization and Christianity together once for all in a single mighty mold.”

“Reitzenstein declares that Augustine’s life-work was “the program of a reconciliation of Antique civilization and Christianity, whose synthesis still determines our culture.”

“This fusion of the classical and Christian heritages was the culmination of a long process. “All the Christian writers from Justin to Gregory of Nazianzus and from Minucius Felix to Jerome used the classics to explain, to enrich, and to defend Christianity,” wrote Father Combès in his valuable
study of Augustine’s education, and this fusion of classic and Christian “attained its perfection in the work of St. Augustine.”

“Note that the trend begins with Justin and Minucius Felix, Christian converts who had been thoroughly indoctrinated by the schools before ever joining the Church, and who remained fiercely and unshakably loyal to the schools to the end of their lives, regarding themselves as the real or esoteric Christians and pooh-poohing the others as an uneducated and uncritical rabble. [Ed. note: Could there be any doubt today that worldly-regarded men such as these, who infiltrated the ancient Christian church and perverted the Gospel with the exoteric teachings of the Greek mystery schools, were precisely the kinds of wolves in sheep’s clothing that the Church leaders of the time were struggling against?] We have noted already how these men thought their fine heathen educations would be a great boon to the Church. This is the group to which Augustine belongs; Father Eggersdorfer has shown how he remained up to the end of his life completely a child of the schools.

“Augustine himself calls the adoption of pagan education “spoiling the Egyptians,” and in his famous de doctrina Christiana, written at the end of his life, he presents his program for sending the Church to school with the rhetoricians and philosophers. In making his perfect fusion of Christian and classic knowledge to produce a doctrinal system which he and his intellectual friends could accept, Augustine, to quote Combès, “uses the ancient theodicy, metaphysics, morality, and politics…. He often seems to reproach himself for doing this, to be sure; but the protests of his heart are silenced before the implacable dictates of his intellect. It is his desire to endow the Church with a doctrine so solidly constructed that she will never again have anything to fear from her enemies.”

“That is a remarkably revealing statement which deserves some examination. From the first quotation of Combès we learned that the idea of reconciling Christian with pagan ideas was one that had been current among the intellectuals of the Church for a long time—it was anything but the blinding flash of inspiration that some would make it out to be: it was in fact a creeping sickness in the Church. The idea of  a supersynthesis had become an obsession in the schools, where work on encyclopedic summas of all knowledge had long since brought all original research to a complete halt. In his pre-Christian days Augustine had displayed a passion for this kind of activity, and it never left him. Next we learn from Combès that Augustine was not at all happy about what he was doing to the Church: “He often seems to reproach himself for this.” Why should he reproach himself unless he knew there was something
fundamentally wrong about his program? Monsignor Duchesne opens the third volume of his Early History of the Christian Church with the remark: “In uniting itself closely to the State, the Church under Theodosius was not making a good match: it was wedding a sick man, soon to become a dying one.”

“We might paraphrase the sentence to read: “In uniting itself closely to the learning of the state schools, the Church under Augustine was not making a good match: it was wedding a sick man, soon to become a dying one.” The two “weddings” are actually phases of the same movement, for Theodosius’ work of consolidation and Augustine’s were going on at exactly the same time. Classical learning was a very sick man in Augustine’s day, and he knew it. Many authorities have remarked how the saint constantly denounces the arts of the schools while constantly practicing them.

“This fatal inconsistency has been immortalized in the story of St. Jerome, St. Augustine’s great contemporary (they died but ten years apart), who in a dream was chastised by an angel with the awful accusation, “You are not a Christian, but a Ciceronian!” And after he awoke, Jerome went right on being a good Ciceronian, as did Augustine to the end of his days. In a recent study Marrou has shown Augustine’s own education to be that of a decadent age, and has pointed out that the only change St. Augustine made in introducing pagan education into the church officially was to make the courses even more simple, superficial, and streamlined than they had been, thus contributing to “that lowering of the general level of civilization which already, all around Augustine, announces the coming age of the barbarians.”

“Well might Augustine reproach himself for what he was doing; but he had no choice: “The protests of his heart are silenced before the implacable dictates of his intellect.” What are the implacable dictates that thus override desire? Combès continues, “to endow the Church with a doctrine so solidly constructed that she will never again have anything to fear from her enemies.” Never again? To be sure: in the past the philosophers could pick Christian doctrine to pieces—they could show you in black and white that God could never have a son, or that, since he was “the totally other,” nothing could possibly be in his image, etc. As Peter remarks in the Clementine Recognitions, Simon Magus could always give him a bad time
and usually win the argument—but that didn’t worry him
. The ancient saints were not impressed by the pompous schoolmen, because they had their testimonies. It was because revelation had ceased that
Augustine was driven to come to an understanding with the philosophers, who were now
feared and respected as possessing the only available key to knowledge. Whence this new attitude, yielding to “the implacable dictates of the intellect”?

“The world of St. Augustine’s day was willing enough to become Christian, since the emperor’s approval and compulsion had made such a course both safe and popular. But the new Christian world community was not willing to fulfill the conditions necessary to receiving revelation—not by a long shot. We can best describe the situation by another quotation from Monsignor Duchesne: “Long distances separated them [the Christians of St. Augustine’s time] from the spiritual enthusiasm of the early Church…. Now everyone was Christian, or nearly everyone; and this implied that the profession involved but little sacrifice…. The mass of the community was Christian in the only way in which the mass could be, superficially and in name; the water of baptism had touched it, but the spirit of the Gospel had not penetrated its heart. Upon their entry into the Church, the faithful invariably renounced the pomps of Satan; but neither the theatres nor the games were deserted: it was a subject on which preachers uttered their most eloquent protests, and all to no purpose [Augustine himself has much to say on this theme]…. Was it really the Church which was  overcoming the world? Was it not rather the world which was overcoming the Church?”

“Whoever was winning, in Augustine’s day the people of the church no longer had testimonies: from now on they insisted that the gospel be proved to them by intellectual arguments and clever demonstrations. Augustine himself says he wanted to be as sure of its truth as he was sure that four and three make seven; like Origen, he wanted to put the doctrine of the Church on an intellectual basis, which was the nearest thing to certainty that he could ever get. He was, says Arnold Lunn, the wellknown English Catholic, “the first of the Fathers to realise fully the necessity for a rational foundation of the faith.”

“And Professor Grabmann reminds us that in his theological explorations, Augustine “had almost no predecessors, and for the most part was the very first man to experience the intellectual difficulties of these questions.” “For four hundred years, during which the philosophers constantly made fun of them, the Christians had failed to realize that their faith should be founded on reason and speak the language of philosophy! Whence this astounding oversight? Why must Augustine be the first to see the light? Obviously, as we have often pointed out on other evidence, the early Christians had a revealed faith and were not interested in things reasoned out by man.

“Augustine wanted to endow the church with a solidly constructed doctrine, says Father Combès. Hadn’t Christ and the Apostles already done that? It was certainly not their intention to work out a system that would please the schoolmen. Just before he was put to death, the Lord told his disciples not to be afraid, because he had overcome the world. That was as far as the ancient saints would go: they made no attempt to win popularity with those who would not accept the gospel as it stood. The Apostles were instructed when the people would not accept their teachings, simply to depart and go to others—not to change those teachings under any circumstances into something the world would accept. But that is precisely what St. Augustine did. He, and not the Lord or the Apostles, is, in Grabmann’s words, “the true creator of the theology of the West.”

“What a comedown from the days of revelation! Let us summarize what Father Combès has told us: (1) Augustine found the Church without a solid doctrinal foundation; (2) he took it upon himself to steady the ark—but who gave him the necessary knowledge or authority to do it? Where did he go for his information? Combès tells us that (3) he went to the pagan schools—he took their theodicy, metaphysics, moral teachings, and politics and worked them into his system. Is that the proper source for Christian doctrine? (4) That question worried Augustine too, but (5) he had to go ahead with his project because the times required it urgently. And what was the world clamoring for? A theology that would appeal on rational grounds alone to a Christian world which was, as Duchesne puts it,  Christian in name only, and which had forgotten the meaning of a testimony.

“The wedding of the sickly philosophy of the fourth century to Christian doctrine could take place only after Christianity had been once for all definitely divorced from the gift of prophecy and revelation. St. Augustine fully deserves his title of the man who changed the whole course of world history and of church history. He found himself in an intolerable situation, and he made the best of it. It is the situation, not the man, that teaches us what hard necessity and fateful decisions faced the Church once the gifts of revelation and prophecy were withdrawn.”

As can be witnessed after the transition which St. Augustine finalized, the practices, rites, and manner of worship of the Catholic church changed in ways that astonishingly parallel characteristics of other religions whose roots
lie in the ancient mystery schools. Celibate monks in drab-colored robes, with shaved heads and prayer beads, chanting set prayers and incantations – all startlingly harkens to nearidentical aspects of the practices of Chinese Buddhism. In fact when Catholicism first made its way into the Orient, representatives were extremely startled to witness these similarities and wrote letters back home expressing their dismay.

While the trinity of Father, Son and Holy Ghost is still present, the introduction of Mariolotry (i.e. the veneration of Mary) produced an exoteric symbol of deity or deific concept – thus creating a Catholicized version of the Ra/Osiris – Isis – Horus relationship. The twelve apostles and various other Biblical identities became deified, and constitute a Catholic equivalent of a pantheon of immortals, not unlike the qualities and attributes of those of ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome – to which mere mortals can directly offer prayers (instead addressing the Father in the name of Jesus Christ), usually for specific needs or purposes.

The term saint went from referring to a mortal follower of Christ (the equivalent of the definition of a Christian today) to a pinnacle title of impeccable status – sainthood – applied only to those who lived a life honorable and exemplary enough, having met a specific criteria, and who are now deceased. All but a handful of the billions of mortals that have graced this planet could ever hope or dream of achieving such loftiness. Is it not unlike the elite dream of achieving immortality and surmounting the Grecian Mount Olympus?

While the term purgatory is nowhere to be found in the Bible, its postulated likeness is uncannily reminiscent of the Grecian concept of Hades. The more one looks, the more it becomes apparent that Roman Catholicism is not much more than an exoteric shell of religiosity – in the same vein as those exoteric shells of ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome – which hides an esoteric core of initiates and secret doctrines deep within. Except, in this case, the shell utilizes Christ, His mother, His apostles, His atonement, His good works, as well as twisting His sacred words to mask the Luciferian doctrines deeply concealed within.

Secret societies, and the mystery schools at their cores, truly exist and are found in every single culture throughout earth’s history. In our modern age their initiates have infiltrated and all but dominate every government on earth. Their initiates and sycophants are among the richest and/or most influential members of every segment of society heavily influence and/or control every major corporation in the world, either through the board of directors or directly in executive positions. The most powerful of such secret societies’ prominent families and established groups not only control the largest banks, but also have control over the world’s money supply. Initiates of secret societies do not disclose that they are initiates to anyone but other initiates in a private setting.

At their core, the dogma and agenda of these secret societies are Luciferian and practically identical. The most powerful and nefarious of these secret societies not only make blood oaths to uphold each other (requiring the death of initiated exposers and whistleblowers), but some initiations actually involve the murder/sacrifice of an innocent human being as a demonstration of abject loyalty to the order. 

In an age of increasing hostility towards organized religion, and increased scapegoating in fallacious claims that many of societies ills originate from religious institutions, what better way to disguise the morals, ethics, codes, philosophies and doctrines of the mystery schools than to present them as existing wholly outside the framework of religion – that they are universally applied spiritual truths – that they are a fundamental part of mankind’s metaphysical nature? In other words: secularize them.

This is precisely what has been done. Over the past century, mystery school theologies and tenets have been gradually infused into Western popular culture through secular channels. They now permeate the mindset of the general public as accepted “non-offensive truths.” Three particular movements established to accomplish this include: Theosophy, Secular Humanism, and New Age Spiritualism. These have been created, funded and promoted within popular secular culture with the purpose of disguising what is Luciferian doctrine at its root. In every instance, the religiosity of the tenets have been made acceptable either through generalized, mystical, pretentiously-sophisticated grandiose terminology, or through whitewashing the spiritual aspects of Luciferian values by claiming to use scientific methods of searching for the virtues that best suit the human race. The former method makes such dogma easier to swallow and embrace for spiritually-minded people; the latter method is geared to appeal to academics, intellectuals and atheists. With either route, the end results are already plotted to arrive at the destination of mystery school Luciferianism.

Which secret society rules the world? Global elite, bankers, politicians, or religion? Well, the world is ruled by powerful and dangerous secret societies. Here’re the top 10 most mysterious secret societies that actually hold the key to everything in today’s world:

#1. Skull And Bones

Founded in 1832 by Yale University students, Skull and Bones is surrounded by conspiracy theories; the most popular being that the CIA founders were members of this secret society and that they still control it. The society has been criticized for everything  weird sexual acts, the Kennedy assassination, espionage and drug smuggling.

#2: The Bilderberg Group

The Bilderberg was started in 1954 in the Netherlands “to create an aristocracy of purpose,” mainly in the United States and Europe. Its members include some of the most powerful and highly influential people in the world from the IMF’s top officials to presidents and EU leaders. The most famous conspiracy theories say the group is run by the Nazis, it is trying to impose a one world government, and it runs the US Republican party.

#3: The Freemasonry

The all-male group, formed in 1717 in London, has six million powerful members across the world. It is alleged that George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Winston Churchill, Mozart, and Harry Houdini were Freemasons. They are infamous for secret passwords, secret handshakes, designing the Pyramids, and plotting the French Revolution.

#4: The Knights Templar

In 1119, nine knights founded the Knights Templar: a Catholic military order created to protect pilgrims traveling through the Holy Land, as well as guard the most sacred Christian treasures. Its non-combatant members developed the earliest forms of banking throughout Christendom, and built fortifications across Europe and the Holy Land. Though it was disbanded in 1312, it is said that the Freemasons are keeping the flame alive for the Knights Templar.

#5: The Hashashin

The Hashashins, or the Assassins, one of the most fearsome of all the secret societies in the world, are known for assassinating their religious and political enemies, regardless of the number of security personnel guarding their targets. It is said that the group of legendary contract killers, formed in the late 11th century, were vanquished by the end of the 13th century but left its dangerous legacy in today’s Syria and Iran.

#6: The Cadaver Society

A secret society of students at Washington and Lee University. It is rumored that underground passageways which its members use to remain undetected  span the campus. It is speculated that the Cadaver Society serves as a branch of the Illuminati, a group that has control over powerful systems like banks and governments.

#7: Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn

Founded in the late 19th century, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was dedicated to the study of the occult, the paranormal, and metaphysics and everything considered magical. The order, also known as the “Golden Dawn”, has been one of the single biggest influences on 20th century western occultism such as Wicca.

#8: Ordo Templis Orientis

An international fraternal and religious society, Ordo Templis Orientis is modeled after the Freemasonry structure and centered on a degree of occultism. Many Ancient Egyptian Gods and the Devil are invoked during the rituals, which are sometimes performed naked, and use virgin priestesses, children, and priests.

#9: Rosicrucians

Founded by a group of German Protestants in the early 15th century, the philosophical secret society was perceived as very dangerous at the time, as they reportedly used occult practices to bring about a global transformation. It is claimed they are the guiding force behind every significant revolution in modern history.

#10: The Illuminati

Perhaps the most popular cult of modern society, the Illuminati was formed to end superstition, obscurantism, religious influence over public life, and abuses of state power. It is alleged that they conspire to establish a New World Order and gain political power by using the media to brainwash the masses.

In 2012, Wired documented the journey to crack a mysterious coded text dated from the 18th century.

In the mid 18th century, the esoteric organization appeared to be made up of ophthalmologists who were performing ground-breaking work in the field of eyesight.

Canadian Journalist, Serge Monast, Exposes Project Blue Beam – a Scientific Plan to Usher in a One World Religion and the New World Order

Because the tape from which we transcribed was not of high quality, and along with the very heavy French accent, we were unable to make out some of the words. We ...
