APOLLYON RISING 2012
The Lost Symbol Found And The Final Mystery Of The Great Seal Revealed
A Terrifying And Prophetic Cipher, Hidden From The World By The U.S. Government For Over 200 Years Is Here
Though Roosevelt would set in motion the push to place the Great Seal on the US One Dollar Bill, it was Wallace who brought the seal’s significance to Roosevelt, believing the symbolism of the emblems carried inference to Roosevelt’s ‘New Deal,’ and, more important, a Masonic prophecy toward a New World Order. Wallace describes the meeting he had with Roosevelt:
Roosevelt… was first struck with the representation of the all-seeing eye—a Masonic representation of the Great Architect of the Universe. Next, he was impressed with the idea that the foundation for the new order of the ages had been laid in 1776 but that it would be completed only under the eye of the Great Architect. Roosevelt, like myself, was a 32nd Degree Mason. He suggested that the Seal be put on the dollar bill… and took the matter up with the Secretary of the Treasury [also a Freemason]... He brought it up in a Cabinet meeting and asked James Farley [Postmaster General and a Roman Catholic] if he thought the Catholics would have any objection to the “All Seeing Eye” which he as a Mason looked on as a Masonic symbol of Deity. Farley said “no, there would be no objection.” It is natural to assume Wallace and Roosevelt also pondered the Eagle on the Great Seal with its 32 feathers on the right wing and 33 on the left representing the 32nd and 33rd Degrees of Freemasonry, because in addition to being 32nd Degree Masons, Roosevelt was the 32nd President and Wallace the 33rd Vice President, an especially interesting numerological ‘coincidence’ given that Roosevelt was succeeded by Harry Truman, the 33rd President of the United States and a 33rd Degree Freemason.
As a mystic and Mason, Wallace undoubtedly believed these numbers were not coincidence and furthermore, what is now known, is that Wallace viewed the unfinished pyramid with the all-seeing eye hovering above it on the Great Seal as a prophecy about the dawn of a New World with America at its head. Whenever the United States assumed its position as the new Capital of the World, Wallace believed, the Grand Architect would return and metaphorically the all-seeing eye would be fitted atop the Great Seal Pyramid as the finished ‘apex stone.’ Wallace may even have imagined himself as the mysterious global leader who would fulfill this oracular scheme. In Henry Wallace the Man and the Myth, Dwight MacDonald pointed out: “Just as Wallace thinks of America as the nation destined by God to lead the world, so Wallace thinks of himself as a Messiah, an instrument through whom God will guide America onward and upward.”  Wallace himself seemed to allude to this belief in 1934 when he wrote:
It will take a more definite recognition of the Grand Architect of the Universe before the apex stone [capstone of the pyramid] is finally fitted into place and this nation in the full strength of its power is in position to assume leadership among the nations in inaugurating ‘the New Order of the Ages’. Finding or making “a more definite recognition” of this messianic figure appears to have secretly obsessed Roosevelt and Wallace while also playing a roll in the decision to include the Great Seal on the US Dollar. Both men were fascinated with the concept of a new breed of people—new Atlantians for the New Atlantis similar to Hitler’s contemporaneous exploration for the Aryan supermen—led by an earthly Messiah. Incredibly, if this supernatural leader was to be a magical reincarnation or resurrection of deity, the body or DNA of this savior may have been kept in or represented by a coffin (echoing the coffin symbol on Masonic aprons) cryptically mentioned in correspondence between Wallace and Nicholas Roerich. On March 12, 1933, Wallace wrote Roerich:
Dear Guru, I have been thinking of you holding the casket—the sacred most precious casket. And I have thought of the New Country going forward to meet the seven stars under the sign of the three stars. Investigative mythologist William Henry says this letter from Wallace made it clear that Roosevelt, Nicholas Roerich and Henry Wallace “were in search of this Divine Child… [and that] they awaited… in the ‘New Country’ [America as the New Atlantis].” 
Filmmaker Christian J. Pinto’s "Eye Of The Phoenix: Secrets Of The Dollar Bill," discloses intriguing information about Wallace’s relationship with Roerich and the “sacred most precious casket.” When I asked Mr. Pinto what he thought was meant by the phrase “going forward to meet the seven stars under the sign of the three stars,” and what this had to do with the casket, he emailed me to say:
Tom. The “seven stars” would most likely be at least a partial reference to their Christ figure (Maitreya) as the one world leader, since in Revelation 1:16, it is Christ who holds “seven stars” in his right hand. Remember that Roerich was searching for signs of “the Christ” and the theme of a “universal Messiah” consumed their ideas.Because of the above facts, Pinto believes the occultist’s idea is that the “New Country” as the New World Order shall “meet the seven stars” (be ruled by new governors of the world, whether these are demonic spirits or human beings, perhaps both) under “the sign of the three stars,” a reference to Sirius, says Pinto, which is the light behind the all-seeing eye above the pyramid, symbolizing the power of Lucifer/Satan.
It is further worth considering the writings of Manly P. Hall on these things, since the Roerichs knew Hall personally, and Helena wanted her sons discipled by him. On the symbolism of the number 7, he writes: “By the Pythagoreans the heptad –7—was called ‘worthy of veneration.’ It was held to be the number of religion, because man is controlled by seven celestial spirits … It was called the number of life …. Keywords of the heptad are fortune … control, government, judgment … that which leads all things to their end.”(Hall, Secret Teachings of All Ages, p. 72)
In his writings, Hall claimed that the Apocalypse of St. John the Divine (Book of Revelation) was a symbol for the entire pantheon of the pagan mysteries. He describes the Christ figure thus: “In the opening chapter of the Apocalypse, St. John describes the Alpha and Omega … this Sublime One thus epitomizes … the entire sweep of humanity’s evolutionary growth – past, present, and future.” He continues, saying: “The seven stars carried by this immense Being in his right hand are the Governors of the world …” (Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, pp 185-186)
It is also possible the “sign of three stars” is a reference to Regulus, Arcturus and Spica, which Julie Duin earlier in this series described as forming a straight line from the Capital to the White House during the astrological time related to the dedication of the US Capital building. This would imply the “seven stars under the sign of the three stars” was a fantastic speculation by Wallace, Roerich and company about the coming reign of a messianic figure from the seat of Washington, DC. As we shall show later, there is a fascinating third possibility—that the “seven stars under the sign of the three stars” is a reference to the star systems Pleides and Orion and has everything to do with the Great Seal’s hidden prophecy concerning a new messiah and where he will come from.
Whatever the case for Wallace, central to the fulfillment of this scheme was the ‘sacred casket’ that he mentioned in his letter to Roerich, considered in esoteric circles to be the same as the casket or ‘coffin’ of Osiris, a device partly based on the myth of Osiris as the dying and resurrecting god. According to Peter Goodgame in his intriguing book-length article ‘The Giza Discovery’ , the tomb of Osiris may actually have been discovered in Giza in recent years containing ‘DNA’ related to the ‘deity.’ Though this is discussed in following chapters, I raise the issue here because Wallace (and perhaps Roosevelt) viewed the All-Seeing Eye above the unfinished pyramid as pointing to the return (or reincarnation) of this savior, whose coming would cap the Pyramid and launch the New World Order. The All-Seeing Eye on the Great Seal is fashioned after the “Eye of Horus,” the offspring of Osiris (or sometime Osiris himself), as both men surely understood. But did Roosevelt and Wallace also comprehend the terrifying prophecy that until the publishing of the upcoming book Apollyon Rising 2012 has been hidden from public view, cleverly concealed within the Great Seal of the United States for more than 200 years, which points to the earthly return of this god? I suspect they may have, as the legend of Hiram Abiff—the original Masonic Grand Master and architect of Solomon’s Temple—is but a retelling of the mythos of Isis and Osiris and of the resurrection motif, as every Mason knows.
If political and religious leaders in the United States have since at least the 1930s anticipated the arrival of this Supreme Being, we stand on a disturbing precipice. This entity was known to the Egyptians as Osiris and to the Greeks as Apollo—the same deity by different names according to numerous scholars, including Plutarch, the ancient Roman historian.
Rudolf Steiner in his Egyptian Myths and Mysteries further acknowledged: “The Greeks… recognized that Osiris was the same as the god whom they called Apollo.”  Convincing evidence also exists that even further back in time the historical figure upon whom these myths were based was the legendary King Enmerkar of Uruk, known in the Bible as Nimrod. Peter Goodgame makes reference to this in The Giza Discovery:
“And just who is this Greek god Apollyon who makes his strange appearance in the book of Revelation? Charles Penglase is an Australian professor who specializes in ancient Greek and Near Eastern religion and mythology. In his book, Greek Myths and Mesopotamia: Parallels and Influence in the Homeric Hymns and Hesiod, Penglase carefully and methodically demonstrates that the Greek myths and legends of Apollo were simply Greek retellings of the Babylonian myths involving the rise to power of the god Marduk, which were themselves based on earlier legends of the Sumerian hunter/hero known as Ninurta. Furthermore, according to David Rohl, the original name for Ninurta was in fact Nimurda, whose historical identity can be traced back to King Enmerkar of Uruk, the very same figure who is known in the Bible as Nimrod.” The Greek Historian Herodotus also connected Apollo with Horus, the god whose all-seeing eye stands atop the unfinished pyramid on the Great Seal. This is telling given that the Great Seal’s mottoes and symbolism relate to both Osiris and Apollo specifically, yet as one. Osiris is the dominant theme of the Egyptian symbols, his resurrection and return, while the mottoes of the seal point directly to Apollo, and the Eagle, a pagan emblem of Jupiter, to Apollo’s father. Both gods were known to various ancient societies by other names as well. When this is understood, new light is cast on the Great Seal’s semiosis beginning with the phrase, E Pluribus Unum, Latin for “out of many, one.”
