A Terrifying And Prophetic Cipher, Hidden From The World By The U.S. Government For Over 200 Years Is Here
I ended the last entry making the point that acknowledgment to pagan gods through the use of images and symbols by Masons is interesting given their avowed consecration of the Bible, a book that clearly forbids this type activity as devotion to demons. Yet metaphysicians that do not rely solely on the Bible for authority nonetheless often agree that powerful non-human energies including evil ones can emanate from symbols and, once released, take on a mind of their own. Writing about the Masonic involvement in the French Revolution, Gary Lachman makes an extraordinary and important observation about immaterial destructive forces—which had unseen plans of their own—released as a result of occult politics:
Cazotte himself was aware of the dangerous energies unleashed by the Revolution…. Although Gazotte didn’t use the term, he would no doubt have agreed that, whatever started it, the Revolution soon took on a life of its own, coming under the power of an egregore, Greek for “watcher,” a kind of immaterial entity that is created by and presides over a human activity or collective. According to the anonymous author of the fascinating Meditations on the Tarot, there are no “good” egregores, only “negative” ones…. True or not, egregores can nevertheless be ‘engendered by the collective will and imagination of nations.’ As Joscelyn Godwin points out, ‘an egregore is augmented by human belief, ritual and especially by sacrifice. If it is sufficiently nourished by such energies, the egregore can take on a life of its own and appear to be an independent, personal divinity, with a limited power on behalf of its devotees and an unlimited appetite for their future devotion.’ If, as some esotericists believe, human conflicts are the result of spiritual forces for spiritual ends, and these forces are not all “good,” then collective catastrophes like the French Revolution take on a different significance. 
In addition to egregores or demons by any other name being drawn—like flies to a lightbulb—to men, and energized through symbols, statues and rituals, Ovason says the dedication of the US Capital Building cornerstone in particular had to be done at a certain astrological time related to the Zodiacal constellation Virgo (Isis), while Jupiter was rising in Scorpio, because “the cornerstone ceremonial was designed not only to gain the approval of the spiritual beings, but also to ensure that these were content that the building was being brought into the world at the right time.”  Ovason later adds more directly, “…whoever arranged for Virgo to be so consistently operative during foundation and cornerstone ceremonies, must have been alert to the fact that they were inviting some archetype, or spritual being, to direct the destiny of the city” (itallics in the original, pg 361). Finally Ovason hints who the “spiritual being” governing the Capital of the United States is: “… a medieval esotericist…. Would have said that Washington, D.C., was governed by the intelligency Hamaliel, the spiritual entity which ruled Virgo, and which worked hand in hand with Mercury” (pg 373). Hamaliel is an evil adversary of the cherubim of God, serving under Lilith, whom earlier we wrote about concerning her devotees, which gather annually to honor her at the Bohemian Grove.
Every Aug. 10, an astrological event reoccurs in the sky above Washington, tying the city to the pagan Virgo—known in ancient Egypt as the goddess Isis. “At dusk, as golden light turns brick facades a dusty rose, the shimmering sun floats a few degrees just to the left of Pennsylvania Avenue, gradually inching to the right until it sets directly over the famous street,” writes Julie Duin. “If the horizon remains cloudless, three stars are visible in a straight line from the Capitol to the White House to the skies in the west. Known as Regulus, Arcturus and Spica, the stars form a right-angled triangle framing the constellation of Virgo.”  Such mysticism incorporated into the design of Washington, DC, by Freemasons for summoning the timing, presence and approval of these “invisible agents” was a formula perfected in pagan Rome. John Fellows explains why:
“…they consulted the gods, to know if the enterprise would be acceptable to them, and if they approved of the day chosen to begin the work… they invoked, besides the gods of the country, the gods to whose protection the new city was recommended, which was done secretly, because it was necessary that the tutelary gods should be unknown to the vulgar.” 
It may come as little surprise then that when George W. Bush in a speech the day before his second inaugural said the United States had “a calling from beyond the stars” (a disturbing statement taken directly from the satanic Necronomicon fiction concerning alien creator gods) that the Capital Building had been intentionally set in the head of a Masonic Owl Figure, which in turn stands atop the White House, located on the chin of the Pentagramic Goat of Mendes. The upside-down pentagram or “baphomet,” clearly visible in the D.C. street layout, represents the goat’s head and is considered the most powerful symbol in Satanism, while the owl figure is a well-known representative of the Masonic, Illuminati, Bohemian owl of wisdom incarnation of Athene, Minerva, Lilith and Hecate.
Occultists around the world understand the power of these D.C. symbols and rituals, and realize they are not only for conveying psychological concepts, but actually to coerce the mysterious and potent supernaturalism invited to take residence there. This belief is deeply preserved in all of the Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Kabalistic symbolism that is a part of Masonic history, and according to famous Freemason, Foster Bailey, these symbols intentionally hide “a secret… which veils mysterious forces. These energies when released can have a potent effect.”  Scottish Philosopher Thomas Carlyle once famously added: “By symbols, accordingly, is man guided and commanded, made happy, made wretched.” Masons as a result are under oath never to reveal the true meaning of their symbols, and when somehow they are compelled to offer explanation, they falsify the statement, even to lower degree Masons as explained by Sovereign Grand Commander Albert Pike in the Masonic handbook Morals and Dogma: “Masonry, like all the Religions, all the Mysteries, Hermetic, and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled; to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light, from them, and to draw them away from it.” 
Substantial reasons exist for why the designer’s of Washington’s Government Center would have wanted to obscure the meaning behind the occultic layout of America’s capital. If the public in general had been prematurely convinced of the end-game prophesied in the D.C. symbolism, it would have been beyond the acceptance of prior generations who likely would have demanded change in leaders and facilities. But as time has moved forward and increasingly it has become necessary for public understanding of America’s heritage and intended purpose, little by little—either by providence, promotion, or even resistance—a clearer picture has emerged of what Manly P. Hall called “The Secret Destiny of America.”
According to the symbolism in Washington, D.C., the secret destiny of America includes future national and global subservience to the god of Freemasonry, a deity most Americans would not imagine when reciting the pledge of allegiance to “one nation under God.” In fact, the idea by some that the United States was established as a monotheistic ‘Christian nation’ by those who designed Washington, D.C., and that the ‘God’ referred to on American currency is a Judeo-Christian one, is a puzzling conclusion when reflected against the deistic beliefs of so many of the founding fathers (as perpetually viewed in the “Supreme Architect” deism of Freemasons and in the “Supreme Judge of the world” and “Divine Providence” notations in the Declaration of Independence) and the countless pagan icons that dominate the symbols, statues, buildings and seals carefully drafted under official government auspices. The Great Seal of the United States, which 33rd Degree Mason Manly P. Hall rightly called “the signature” of that exalted body of Masons who designed America for a “peculiar and particular purpose” bears rich symbolism forecasting anything but Christianity. In fact, when Christians in the 1800s argued that a hypothetical annihilation of the US would lead to “antiquaries of succeeding centuries” concluding that America had been a heathen nation based on symbolism of the Great Seal, Congress was pushed to create something reflecting the Christian faith of so many of its citizens. US President and Freemason Theodore Roosevelt strongly opposed this idea while other Masons were not as frustrated with the plan. Given the ambivalence of the term ‘God’ and the axiom that, interpreted within the context of the Great Seal symbolism this would certainly not infer a traditional Christian God, the slogan ‘In God We Trust’ (whoever you believe that is) was accommodated by Masons and other illuminatus and so approved as the official US motto.
To illustrate the point that one would not determine the ‘God’ in America’s official motto refers to the Father of Jesus Christ or a Biblical Trinity, imagine yourself as a space traveler who visits earth in a fictional post-apocalyptic world. Digging through the rubble of the once thriving planet, you come across a copy of a US One Dollar Bill with the two-sided Great Seal of the United States joined in the middle by the phrase “IN GOD WE TRUST.” Upon consideration, you ask yourself, “what GOD did this refer to?” With no preconceptions you allow the symbolism on the seal to speak for itself, from which you quickly determine that this had been a great culture who worshipped Egyptian and Greek deities, especially a particular solar one whose all-seeing eye glared from atop an unfinished Egyptian pyramid. Upon further investigation into the specific beliefs of the strange group whose members had influenced the Great Seal, you discover from their highest masters, including one “Illustrious” Albert Pike, that the Sun God they venerated so highly had been known to them at various times in history by the names Apollo, Osiris and Nimrod.
Then, you decode something even more important—a hidden divination in the Great Seal that prophesied a time when this “god” would return to Earth in a physical body. His coming, according to the information you gleaned from the draftsmen of the Great Seal, would herald a New World Order. In retrospect, you wonder: Was this prophesied advent on this Great Seal the fomenter of destruction that annihilated what at once was so beautiful a world?
