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


As the centuries passed by, the god and goddess worshipping cities of the Sumerians faded away. The flourishing fields of agriculture that once provided the underpinnings of the great Sumerian economy were depleted of fertility through over-irrigation, and residues of salt build-up appeared to chaff the surface of the land. The city-states of Sumeria; Kish, Ur, Lagash, and Umma, damaged by a millennium of ruthless infighting among the Sumerians, finally succumbed to militant external forces. The barbarian armies of the Elamites (Persians) invaded and destroyed the city of Ur, and Amorites from the west overran the northern province of Sumer and subsequently established the hitherto little-known town of Babylon as their capital. By B.C.1840, Hammurabi, the sixth king of Babylon, conquered the remaining cities of Sumeria and forged northern Mesopotamia and Sumeria into a single nation. Yet the ultimate demise of the Sumerian people did not vanquish their ideas. Sumerian art, language, literature, and especially religion, had been forever absorbed into the cultures and social academics of the nations surrounding Mesopotamia, including the Hittite nation, the Babylonians, and the ancient Assyrians. Ultimately a principal benefactor of Sumeria’s ideas, and a people who would make their own contributions to the ancient mythologies, was an old and flourishing population of agrarians known as the Egyptians.

By the year B.C. 1350, Egyptian dominance had spread from Syria and Palestine into the farthest corners of the Fertile Crescent. From northern Mesopotamia to the Baltic Sea, the pharaohs of Egypt had established themselves as the social and economic leaders of the civilized world, ruling an area more than 2,000 miles in length. The military superiority of the Egyptian army demonstrated the ability to subdue the threat of resistance, maintaining a hegemony that extended from the Nubians to the Hyksos. Even so, in the final analysis, it was the influence of the gods of Egypt—with their magic, myths, and rituals—that provided the Egyptians a lasting place in history and led succeeding generations into an immense, enlightening description of the ancient mythologies, including a wealth of information regarding the dynamics and supernatural possibilities of paganism.

Prehistoric Egyptians believed in the same fundamental idea that most evolutionists subscribe to today—the premise that the oceans both preceded and in some way contributed to the creation of the living cosmos. From the Fifth Dynasty Pyramid Texts, the Heliopolitan theory of creation stated that Atum (the sun god Ra) independently created himself from a singular expression of self will—an act visualized by the Egyptians as a divine egg that appeared upon the primordial waters of the all-filling ocean called Nun, out of which Atum (meaning He who created himself), emerged. According to myth, a second act of creation developed around a divine masturbation when Atum, the great “He-She,” orally copulated himself and afterward regurgitated his children—Shu and Tefnut—who assumed the positions of god and goddess of air and moisture. Later, when Shu and Tefnut became lost in the universal ocean of Nun, Atum exhibited his paternal care by sending out his Eye, which had the curious habit of detaching itself from Atum and of thinking independent thoughts, to look for them. The Eye of Atum succeeded in finding the child gods and eventually returned to discover that Atum had grown impatient during the wait and had created a second eye. In order to placate the hostility that soon developed between the two divine eyes, Atum affixed the first eye upon his forehead where it was to oversee and rule the forthcoming world of creation. Thus the Eye of Atum became the jealous, destructive aspect of the sun god Ra.

To avoid getting lost again in the all-filling waters of Nun, Shu and Tefnut procreated Geb (the earth), and Nut (the sky), and thus provided the more stable elements of earth, nature, and the seasons. Later, Geb was conceptualized as cohabiting with Nut and producing four children of his own: Seth, Osiris, Isis, and Nephthys. Of these, Osiris and Isis grew into such powerful cult deities that Osiris, with the help of his sister-wife Isis, nearly overthrew Ra as the most powerful of the gods—an action that so enraged his brother Seth that the hateful and jealous sibling killed him. Seth’s murderous act was followed by the jackal-headed god, Anubis, assisting Isis with the embalming of her slain husband-brother Osiris, an act through which Anubis secured his position as “the god of embalming.” Then, while still in mourning, Isis summoned the wisdom of Thoth, which she combined with her own proficient magical skills, and produced a resurrected Osiris, who, in turn, impregnated her with Horus, the god of daylight. Horus promptly avenged his father’s death by killing the evil brother Seth.

Another version of the myth claims that Horus was born to Isis only after she impregnated herself with semen that she had taken from the corpse of Osiris (activity that sounds suspiciously like advanced science, artificial insemination or cloning). The god Seth was angry and sought to destroy Horus, and Ufologists may note with interest how Isis seeks help from Thoth, who comes in a flying craft—the Boat of the Celestial Disc—as recorded in the Metternich Stela:
Then Isis sent forth a cry to heaven and addressed her appeal to the Boat of Millions of Years. And the Celestial Disc stood still, and moved not from the place where it was. And Thoth came down, and he was provided with magical powers, and possessed the great power… And he said: ‘O Isis, thou goddess, thou glorious one… I have come this day in the Boat of the Celestial Disc from the place where it was yesterday… I have come from the skies to save the child for his mother.
Yet another story claims that Seth persuaded his brother Osiris to climb into a box, which he quickly shut and threw into the Nile. Osiris drowned and his body floated down the Nile river where it snagged on the limbs of a tamarisk tree. In Byblos, Isis recovered the body from the river bank and took it into her care. In her absence, Seth stole the body again and chopped it into fourteen pieces, which he threw into the Nile. Isis searched the river bank until she recovered every piece, except for the genitals, which had been swallowed by a fish (Plutarch says a crocodile). Isis simply replaced the missing organ with a facsimile and was somehow able to reconstruct Osiris and impregnate herself with the ithyphallic corpse.

From this time forward Osiris was considered the chief god of the deceased and the judge of the netherworld—the dark and dreary underworld region of the dead. In human form Osiris was perceived as a mummy and, paradoxically, while he was loved as the guarantor of life after death, he was feared as the demonic presence that decayed the bodies of the dead. Such necromantic worship of Osiris grew to become an important part of several Mediterranean religions, with his most famous cult center being at Abydos in Upper Egypt where an annual festival reenacted his death and resurrection. In Abydos, Osiris was called the god of the setting sun—the mysterious “force” that ruled the region of the dead just beneath the western horizon. He was venerated in this way primarily because death, and specifically the fear of one’s estate after death, grew to constitute so much of Egyptian concern.

In the funerary texts known as the Book of the Dead, the most elaborate magical steps were developed around the Osiris myth to assist the Egyptians with their journey into the afterlife. It was believed that every person had a Ka—a spiritual and invisible duplicate—and that the Ka accompanied them throughout eternity. Since the Ka provided each person with a resurrected body in the kingdom of the dead, yet could not exist without the maintenance of the earthly body, every effort was made to preserve the human corpse. The body was therefore mummified according to the elaborate magic rituals passed down from Isis, who, according to legend, singularly perfected the rituals of mummification through her work on Osiris. Wooden replicas of the body were also placed in the tomb as a kind of substitute in case the mummy was accidently destroyed, and additional protection for the corpse was provided through the construction of ingenious burial tombs specifically designed to hide and preserve the human body for all of eternity. Finally, curses were placed throughout the tomb as a warning to intruders.

At death the Egyptian Ka departed the human body and, accompanied by the hymns and prayers of the living, used the formulas memorized from the funerary texts to outsmart the horrible demons seeking to impede the Ka’s progress into the kingdom (or hall) of Osiris. Arriving at the judgment hall, the heart of the Ka was “weighed in the balance” by Osiris and his 42 demons. If they found the deceased lacking in virtue, he was condemned to an eternity of hunger and thirst. If the Ka was determined to have belonged to an outright “sinner”, it was cut to pieces and fed to Ammit—the miserable little goddess and “eater of souls.” But if the deceased was judged to have lived a virtuous life, the Ka was granted admittance to the heavenly fields of Yaru, where foods were abundant and pleasures unending. The only toil in this heaven was to serve in the grain fields of Osiris, and even this could be obviated by placing substitutionary statues, called shawabty, into the tomb.

There is some evidence that the 42 demons or “judges” of Osiris were in some way related to the prehistoric Watchers—the mysterious angelic beings who first appeared in the early cultures of the Middle East (discussed later). The early Egyptian scribes viewed the leaders from among these fallen Watchers as the underworld demons of Osiris whose “terrible knives” exacted judgment upon the Ka of the wicked. The Egyptians were desperately afraid of the netherworld Watchers, and a significant amount of time was spent determining how to placate the judgment of Osiris and his 42 demons. The worship of Isis—the sister-wife of Osiris—thus became integral. As pointed out earlier, Isis was one of the most important goddesses of ancient mythology and was venerated by the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, as the “goddess of a thousand names” and as the undisputed queen of magical skills. An example of her form of magic is found in the Theban Recension of the Book of the Dead and depicts Isis providing a spell for controlling the 42 demons of Osiris. The formula consisted of an amulet made of carnelian that had been soaked in the water of ankhami flowers. It was supposed to be placed around the neck of the dead person in combination with the spoken words of magic. If performed properly, it would empower the Ka of the individual to enter into the region of the dead under the protection of Isis, where the Ka would thereafter move about wheresoever it wanted without fear of the 42 demons of Osiris. The only Egyptian who did not benefit from this particular spell was the Pharaoh, and for a very good reason. Although Pharaoh was considered to be the “son of the sun god” (Ra) and the incarnation of the falcon god Horus during his lifetime, at death he became the Osiris—the divine judge of the netherworld. On earth, Pharaoh’s son and predecessor would take his place as the newly anointed manifestation of Horus, and thus each new generation of the pharaohs provided the gods with a divine spokesman for the present world and for the afterlife.

The observant reader may wonder, “was there something more to the Pharaoh’s deification than meets the eye?” The cult center of Amun-Ra at Thebes may hold the answer, as it was the site of the largest religious structure ever built—the temple of Amun-Ra at Karnak—and the location of many extraordinary magical rituals. The great Temple with its 100 miles of walls and gardens (the primary object of fascination and worship by the nemesis of Moses—the Pharaoh of the Exodus, Ramses II) was the place where each pharaoh reconciled his divinity in the company of Amun-Ra during the festival of Opet. The festival was held at the Temple of Luxor and included a procession of gods carried on barges up the Nile river from Karnak to the Temple. The royal family accompanied the gods on boats while the Egyptian laity walked along the shore, calling aloud and making requests of the gods. Once at Luxor, the Pharaoh and his entourage entered the holy of holies where the king joined his ka (the mysterious science or ritual is unknown) and transmogrified into a living deity, the son of Amun-Ra. Outside, large groups of dancers and musicians waited anxiously. When the king emerged ‘transformed,’ the crowd erupted in gaiety. From that day forward the Pharaoh was considered to be—just as the god ciphered in the Great Seal of the United States will be—the son and spiritual incarnation of the Supreme Deity. The All-Seeing Eye of Horus/Apollo/Osiris above the unfinished pyramid on the Great Seal represents this spirit… and prophesies his coming during the Novus Ordo Seclorum.

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


“In the E at Delphoi, although the sun represents God… Plutarch here associates this supreme god with the Apollon of religion, while in the essay on Isis religion, he is associated with Osiris. Both Apollo(n) and Osiris are sun gods [who]… turns out to be (not to our surprise) the Delphic Apollo (A-pollon).”—Frederick E. Brank, Relighting the souls: studies in Plutarch, in Greek literature, religion, and philosophy, and in the New Testament background.

“The Solar Eye [on the Great Seal of the United States] was called the eye of… Apollo… the sacred and mysterious Eye of the Most High of the gods…. Thus it is held in the highest estimation by all Royal Arch Masons.”—Charles A. L. Totten, Our Inheritance In The Great Seal Of Manasseh, The United States Of America.

“This is he . . . who shall again set up the Golden Age amid the fields where Saturn once reigned.”—Virgil, Aeneid 6.790
Scholars such as Michael Heiser, Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible and Semitic Languages provide details on the study of the Divine Council—the pantheon of divine beings or angels who currently administer the affairs of heaven and earth. Experts in this field of biblical studies typically agree that, beginning at the Tower of Babel, the world and its inhabitants were disinherited by the sovereign God of Israel and placed under the authority of lesser divine beings that became corrupt and disloyal to God in their administration of those nations (Psalm 82). According to the theory, these beings quickly became worshipped on earth as gods following Babel, and because these angels, unlike their human admirers, would continue on earth until the end of time, each ‘spirit’ behind the pagan attributions was known at miscellaneous times in history and to various cultures by different names. This certainly agrees with the biblical definition of idolatry as the worship of fallen angels, and means the characterization of such spirits as “Jupiter,” “Justice,” “Osiris,” and “Isis,” can be correctly understood to be titles ascribed to distinct and individual supernaturalism. The spirit behind Apollo was thus a real personality; Osiris actually lived, and still does. Yet Osiris could have been the same entity known elsewhere as Apollo or Dionysus. Numerous Greek historians, including Plutarch, Herodotus, and Diodorus Siculus, observed Osiris of the Egyptians and Dionysus of the Greeks as the same god, while others found Apollo and Dionysus to be one and the same. Since the designers of the Great Seal of the United States incorporated the appropriate Egyptian symbols and Roman-Greek mottoes into the seal’s scheme to cipher a prophecy about the return of this god—Apollo-Osiris (aka, Nimrod)—it seems reasonable that the occultists also perceived the two gods as representing a singular unseen agency. As a result, readers will benefit from understanding the mythos behind these deities. In the mythological records, trace-nuances, which communicate specific traits having to do with the nature of the entity, can be found. This is helpful in understanding the nature of the ‘god’ that is prophesied to return.


It was the year B.C. 3500, and the alluvial desert of the Middle East was alive with spiritual and physical activity. In a valley forged between the twin rivers of the Tigris and the Euphrates, magnificent walled cities awoke to the chatter of busy streets and marketplaces. In what the Greeks would later call “Mesopotamia” (between the rivers), the world’s first great trade center and civilization had developed. The opulent Sumerian cities of Ur—the home of Abram—Uruk, and Lagash, formed the economic machines of the ancient Middle East, while industries from as far away as Jericho near the Mediterranean Sea, and Catal Huyuk in Asia Minor, competed for the trade opportunities they provided. Laborers from the biblical city of Jericho exported salt into Sumer, and miners from Catal Huyuk prepared obsidian, used in making mirrors, for shipment into the ancient metropolis. But while the prehistoric people of the East looked to the Sumerians for their supply of daily bread, the Sumerians themselves gazed heavenward to the early rising of Utu (Shamash), the all-providing sun god, as he prepared once again to ride across the sky in his chariot. In B.C. 3500, Utu was not alone among the gods. By now the Sumerian pantheon provided the earliest known description of organized mythology consisting of a complex system of more than 3,000 deities covering nearly every detail of nature and human enterprise. There were gods of sunshine and of rain. There were vegetation gods, fertility gods, river gods, animal gods, and gods of the afterlife. There were great gods—Enlil (prince of the air), Anu (ruler of the heavens), Enki, (the god of water), and so on. Under these existed a second level of deities, including Nannar the moon god, Utu the sun god, and Inanna, the “Queen of Heaven.”

A significant question, which has puzzled scholars and historians for more than a millenium is where did the Sumerian deities come from? Since the religion of Sumeria was the first known organized mythology and would greatly influence the foundational beliefs of Assyria, Egypt, Greece, Rome, and others, where does one find the beginning of their many gods? Were the Sumerian deities the product of human imagination, or the distortion of some earlier prehistoric revelation? Were they the “mythologizing” of certain ancient heros, or, as some New Age followers suggest, the result of an extra-terrestrial “alien” visitation whose appearance gave birth to the legends and mythological gods? More important, did the gods of Sumeria reflect the emergence of an unknown power operating through pagan dynamics, or were the gods purely the creation of primitive imaginations?

These questions are both fascinating and difficult since the gods and goddesses of ancient Sumeria/Mesopotamia continue to be shrouded in a history of unknown origins. It was as though from “out of nowhere” the Sumerians sprang onto the scene thousands of years ago, bringing with them the first written language and a corpus of progressive knowledge—from complicated religious concepts, to an advanced understanding of astrology, chemistry, and mathematics. The questionable origin of the Sumerian culture has caused more than a few orthodox theorists to conclude that these gods, and the subsequent mythologies that grew out of them (Assyrian, Egyptian, etc.), were the diabolical scheme of a regressive and evil supernatural presence. If this is true, does the ancient power continue to work within our world? Do primordial and living entities, once worshipped as “gods,” coexist with modern man?

The biblical view of the origin of the pagan gods begins with what in my second book I coined The Original Revelation. This means there was a perfect revelation from God to man at the time of creation. The first man Adam was at one with God and perceived divine knowledge from the mind of God. The human was “in tune” with the mental processes of God, and understood, therefore, what God knew about science, astronomy, cosmogony, geology, eschatology, and so on. After the fall, Adam was “detached” from the mind of God, but retained an imperfect memory of the divine revelation, including knowledge of God’s plan of redemption from the time of the fall through the end of time and everything in between, including Noah’s Flood, the coming of Messiah, and the final World Empire. Two things began to occur in the decades after the Fall: 1) information from the original revelation became distant and distorted as it was dispersed among the nations and passed from generation to generation; and 2) the realm of Satan seized upon this opportunity to receive worship, and to turn people away from Yahweh, by distorting and counterfeiting the original revelation with pagan ideas and “gods”. This point of view seems reasonable when one considers that the earliest historical and archeological records from civilizations around the world consistently point back to and repeat portions of the original story.

In their startling book, The Discovery of Genesis, the Rev. C.H. Kang and Dr. Ethel R. Nelson confirm that prehistoric Chinese ideographic pictures (used in very ancient Chinese writing) report the story of Genesis, including the creation of the Man and Woman, the garden, the temptation and Fall, Noah’s flood, and the tower of Babel. In his book, The Real Meaning Of The Zodiac, the late Dr. James Kennedy claimed that the ancient signs of the Zodiac also indicate a singular and original revelation—a kind of Gospel in the stars—and that the message of the stars, though demonized and converted into astrology after the fall of man, originally recorded the Gospel of God. He wrote:
There exists in the writings of virtually all civilized nations a description of the major stars in the heavens—something which might be called their “Constellations of the Zodiac” or the “Signs of the Zodiac,” of which there are twelve. If you go back in time to Rome, or beyond that to Greece, or before that to Egypt, Persia, Assyria, or Babylonia—regardless of how far back you go, there is a remarkable phenomenon: Nearly all nations had the same twelve signs, representing the same twelve things, placed in the same order....The book of Job, which is thought by many to be the oldest book of the Bible, goes back to approximately 2150 B.C., which is 650 years before Moses came upon the scene to write the Pentateuch; over1,100 years before Homer wrote the Odyssey and the Illiad; and 1,500 years before Thales, the first of the philosophers, was born. In chapter 38, God finally breaks in and speaks to Job and to his false comforters. As He is questioning Job, showing him and his companions their ignorance, God says to them: “Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? Or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?” (Job 38:31,32). We see here reference to the constellations of Orion and Pleiades, and the star Arcturus. Also in the book of Job there is reference to Cetus, the Sea Monster, and to Draco, the Great Dragon. I would call your attention to Job 38:32a: “Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season?” Mazzaroth is a Hebrew word which means “The Constellations of the Zodiac.” In what may be the oldest book in all of human history, we find that the constellations of the zodiac were already clearly known and understood... Having made it clear that the Bible expressly, explicitly, and repeatedly condemns what is now known as astrology, the fact remains that there was a God-given Gospel in the stars which lays beyond and behind that which has now been corrupted. [1]
In his book, Kennedy condemned the practice of astrology, while asserting his view that the constellations of the Zodiac were likely given by God to the first man as “record-keepers” of the original revelation of God.

If the primary assumption of this view is correct—that an original revelation was corrupted after the fall of man and subsequently degenerated into mythologies of the pagan gods—one should be able to find numerous examples of such corruption from as far back as the beginning of history and within various civilizations around the world. Since the myths behind the gods would thus be “borrowed” ideas, the corrupted texts would be similar to the original truth, and, in that sense, evidence of a singular and original revelation. If the distortions of the original revelation were in fact energized by evil supernaturalism, the goal of the alterations would be to draw people away from the worship of Yahweh. In certain ancient legends—such as the Enuma elish, the Adapa Epic, and the Epic of Gilgamesh—we discover early traces of the kaleidoscope of the original revelation plagiarized for the purpose of constructing the mythologies of the pagan gods.


Evidence suggests that the earliest legends of mythology were preceded by a belief in “the God” (Yahweh or YHWH to the Hebrews) as the creator of all things and the “ruler of heaven.” Later, Satan was described as “the god of this world” (2 Cor. 4:4), and the prince of the “air” (Eph. 2:2). A fascinating struggle between the “ruler of the heavens” versus the “power of the air” occured in early Sumerian mythology after Enki, the god of wisdom and water, created the human race out of clay. It appears that Anu, who was at first the most powerful of the Sumerian gods and the “ruler of the heavens,” was superseded in power and popularity by Enlil, the “god of the air.” To the Christian mind this is perceived as nothing less than Satan, the god of the air, continuing his pretence to the throne of God, and his usurpation of Yahweh—”the Lord of the heavens.” It also indicates a corruption of the original revelation and perhaps an effort on the part of Satan to trick the Sumerians into perceiving him as the “supreme” god (above the God of heaven) and therefore worthy of adoration. Correspondingly, in the Enuma elish (a Babylonian epic), Marduk, the great god of the city of Babylon, was exalted above the benevolent gods and extolled as the creator of the world. Marduk was symbolized as a dragon (as is Satan in Revelation 12:9) called the Muscrussu, and his legend appears to contain several distortions of the important elements of the biblical account of creation. The Adapa Epic tells of another Babylonian legend also roughly equivalent to the Genesis account of creation. In it, Adapa, like Adam, underwent a test on food consumption, failed the test, and forfeited his opportunity for immortality. As a result of the failure, suffering and death were passed along to humanity. Finally, the Epic of Gilgamesh is a Sumerian poem, which, like the Adapa Epic, is deeply rooted in ancient Assyrian and Babylonian mythology. In 1872 George Smith discovered the Gilgamesh tablets while doing research on the Assyrian library of Ashurbanipal at the British Museum. Because of the strong similarity to the biblical account of Noah and the great flood, Bible scholars have viewed the Gilgamesh epic with interest since its discovery. As the legend goes, Gilgamesh, the king of the city of Uruk, was told about the flood from his immortal friend, Utnapishtim (the Sumerian equivalent of Noah). Utnapishtim described for Gilgamesh how the great god Enlil decided to destroy all of mankind because of its “noisy” sins. A plague was sent but failed to persuade mankind of better behavior, and, consequently, the gods determined a complete extermination of the human race. Enki, the lord of the waters, was not happy with the other gods for this decision and warned Utnapishtim of the coming deluge, instructing him to tear down his house and build a great boat. Utnapishtim obeyed Enki, built a great vessel, and sealed it with pitch and bitumen. The family of Utnapishtim loaded onto the boat together with various beasts and fowl. When the rains came, the doors were closed and the vessel rose up above the waters. Like Noah, Utnapishtim sent out a dove, and later a swallow, to search for dry land. They both returned. Later, a raven was released and it never came back. After several more days the boat came to rest on the top of a mountain where Utnapishtim built an altar and offered a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the gods. As the gods smelt the sweet offering, all but Enlil repented for sending the flood.

In my first book, Spiritual Warfare—The Invisible Invasion, I described another interesting example of the original revelation of God as distorted or plagiarized by Satan in order to draw men away from the worship of Yahweh. Concerning Asclepius, the Greek god of healing, I wrote:
At the base of Pergamum’s hill stood the shrine of Asclepius, equipped with its own library, theater, sleeping chambers used in healing rituals, and long underground tunnels joining various other shrines to which pagans journeyed to receive the healing powers of Apollo’s favorite son. The Christian Church considered these mystical powers as demonic, for the worship of Asclepius focused on the image of a serpent, sometimes called Glycon, an enormous serpent-figure some historians see as the origin for the modern symbol of healing—a serpent winding about a pole. Asclepius carried the lofty title, the hero god of healing.
In Numbers 21, Moses designed the brazen serpent on a pole that was used of God as an oracle of healing. 743 years later, in 2 Kings 18:4, we find that Israel had began to worship the brazen serpent with offerings and incense. From here the image was adopted into Greek mythology where it became the symbol of Asclepius, the Greek god of healing.

Asclepius was reported to have cured untold numbers from every conceivable disease—even raising a man from the dead. This caused Apollo through his Oracle at Delphi to declare, “Oh Asclepius!, thou who art born a great joy to all mortals, whom lovely Coronis bare to me, the child of love, at rocky Epidaurus.” Such a healer was he reported to be, that Pluto, god of Hades, complained to Zeus that hardly anyone was dying anymore, and so Zeus destroyed Asclepius with a thunderbolt. Afterward, Apollo pleaded with Zeus to restore his son and this intercession so moved Zeus that he not only brought Asclepius back to life, but immortalized him as the god of medicine. First at Thessaly, and finally throughout the Greek and Roman world, Asclepius was worshiped as the saviour god of healing. [2]
Besides the entwined serpent symbolism, plagiarism of the Original Revelation is found in Greek mythology where Asclepius has the power to heal the sick and to bring the dead back to life by drawing blood out from the side of the goddess of justice, the same deity who “returns” old Satan’s reign during the Novus Ordo Seclorum। Asclepius was symbolized by a serpent winding about a pole, and was called the great “Physician.” The obvious intention of the serpent on a pole in Numbers 21 was to focus mankind on the coming Messiah, the true Great Physician, Jesus Christ, who would hang upon a pole to deliver His followers from sickness and from death by the blood that ran out from His side.

PART FOURTEEN—Read It Before It Is Banned By The US Government

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

While the public has been made to believe E Pluribus Unum refers to United States citizenship being made up of various ethnicity, what becomes clear when this phrase is interpreted within the mystical context of the Great Seal symbolism is that it could easily refer to one god represented by many names—a god known by various ancient cultures as having walked the earth ‘many’ times under ‘many’ names, yet was ‘one,’ or—E Pluribus Unum. This concept gains persuasion when harmonized with the other two mottoes—Annuit coeptis and Novus ordo seclorum—also taken from ancient texts related to the god Apollo. The motto annuit coeptis is from Virgil’s Aeneid, where Ascanius, the son of Aeneas from conquered Troy prays to Apollo’s father, Jupiter [Zeus]. Charles Thompson, designer of the Great Seal’s final version, condensed line 625 of book IX of Virgil’s Aeneid, which reads, Juppiter omnipotes, audacibus annue coeptis (All-powerful Jupiter favors [the] daring undertakings), to annuit coeptis (He approves [our] undertakings). Was Thompson instructed to do this to conceal the true identity of the ‘He’ of the Great Seal—the mythical father-god Jupiter, who gives Apollo life?

The third and most indisputable authentication that the Great Seal’s symbols and mottoes are in fact a hidden prophesy concerning the return of Apollo is Novus ordo seclorum (a New Order of the Ages), adapted by Charles Thomson in 1782 when designing the Great Seal. According to the official record, Thomson—a friend of the Masons and great supporter of Benjamin Franklin’s American Philosophical Society—created the phrase from inspiration he found in a prophetic line in Virgil’s Eclogue IV: Magnus ab integro seclorum nascitur ordo [Virgil’s Eclogue IV (line 5)], the interpretation of the original Latin being, “and the majestic roll of circling centuries begins anew.” Ironically, Christians since the middle ages have been led to believe this phrase from the Cumaean Sibyl (a pagan prophetess of Apollo, identified in the Bible as a demonic deceiver, as detailed later) was prophesying the birth of Jesus Christ and that it was this arrival of the Savior that gave rise to “the majestic roll of circling centuries begins anew” or New Order of the Ages. Virgil himself was put forth as a prophet in this regard, and that is why Dante Alighieri selected him as his guide through the underworld in The Divine Comedy. What is more astonishing is that the Cumaean Sibyl is even prominently featured alongside Old Testament prophets in Michelangelo’s paintings in the Sistine Chapel.

Yet upon reading Virgil’s text, it is abundantly clear whom the prophetess of Apollo was talking about. The divine son, which comes of the Sibyl’s prophecy, is to be spawned of “a new breed of men sent down from heaven” (what Roosevelt, Wallace and Roerich were looking for) when he receives “the life of gods, and see Heroes with gods commingling.” According to the prophecy, this is Apollo, son of Jupiter (Zeus), who returns to earth through mystical “life” given to him from the gods when the deity Saturn (Saturn is the Roman version of the biblical Satan) returns to reign over the earth in a new golden pagan age.

From the beginning of the prophecy we read:
“Now the last age by Cumae’s Sibyl sung Has come and gone, and the majestic roll Of circling centuries begins anew: Justice returns, returns old Saturn’s reign, With a new breed of men sent down from heaven. Only do thou, at the boy’s birth in whom The iron shall cease, the golden race arise, Befriend him, chaste Lucina; ‘tis thine own Apollo reigns. … “He shall receive the life of gods, and see Heroes with gods commingling, and himself Be seen of them, and with his father’s worth Reign o’er a world… “Assume thy greatness, for the time draws nigh, Dear child of gods, great progeny of Jove [Jupiter/Zeus]! See how it totters—the world’s orbed might, Earth, and wide ocean, and the vault profound, All, see, enraptured of the coming time!” [11]
According to Virgil and the Cumaean Sibyl whose prophecy formed the Novus Ordo Seclorum of the Great Seal of the United States, the New World Order begins during a time of chaos when the earth and oceans are tottering, a time like today. This is when the “son” of promise arrives on earth—Apollo incarnate—a pagan savior born of “a new breed of men sent down from heaven” when “heroes” and “gods” are blended together. This sounds eerily similar to what the Watchers did during the creation of Nephilim and to what scientists are doing this century through genetic engineering of human-animal chimeras.

To understand why such a fanciful prophecy about Apollo, son of Jupiter, returning to earth should be important to you, in ancient literature, “Jupiter” was the Roman replacement of Yahweh as the greatest of the gods—a ‘counter-Yahweh.’ His son Apollo is a replacement of Jesus, a ‘counter-Jesus.’ This Apollo comes to rule the final New World Order when “Justice returns, returns old Saturn’s [Satan’s] reign.” The ancient goddess ‘Justice,’ who returns Satan’s reign (Saturnia regna, the pagan golden age), was known to the Egyptians as Ma’at and to the Greeks as Themis, while to the Romans she was Lustitia. Statues and reliefs of her adorn thousands of government buildings and courts around the world, especially in Washington, DC, as familiar Lady Justice, blindfolded and holding scales and a sword. She represents the enforcement of secular law and is, according to the Sibyl’s conjure, the authority that will require global compliance to the zenith of Satan’s authority concurrent with the coming of Apollo. What’s more, the Bible’s accuracy concerning this subject is alarming, including the idea that ‘pagan Justice’ will require surrender to a Satanic system in a final World Order under the rule of Jupiter’s son.

In the New Testament, the identity of the god Apollo, repeat-coded in the Great Seal of the United States as the Masonic ‘Messiah’ that returns to rule the earth, is the same spirit—verified by the same name—that will inhabit the political leader of the end-times New World Order. According to a key prophecy in the book of Second Thessalonians, the Antichrist will be the progeny or incarnation of the ancient spirit, Apollo. Second Thessalonians 2:3 warns: “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [Apoleia; Apollyon, Apollo].” Numerous scholarly and classical works identify “Apollyon” as the god “Apollo”—the Greek deity “of death and pestilence,” and Websters Dictionary points out that “Apollyon” was a common variant of “Apollo” until recent history. An example of this is found in the Classical play by the ancient Greek playwright Aeschylus, The Agamemnon of Aeschylus, where Cassandra repeats more than once, “Apollo, thou destroyer, O Apollo, Lord of fair streets, Apollyon to me.” Accordingly, the name Apollo turns up in ancient literature with the verb apollymi or apollyo, “destroy” and scholars including W.R.F. Browning believe Apostle Paul may have identified the god Apollo as the ‘spirit of Antichrist’ operating behind the persecuting Roman emperor, Domitian, who wanted to be recognized as ‘Apollo incarnate’ in his day.

Revelation 17:8 also ties the coming of Antichrist with Apollo, revealing that the ‘Beast’ shall ascend from the bottomless pit and enter him. “The Beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the Bottomless Pit, and go into perdition [Apolia, Apollo]: and they that dwell on the Earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the Beast that was, and is not, and yet is” (Revelation 17:8).

Abaddon is another name for Apollo (Rev. 9:11), identified historically as the king of demonic “locusts” (Revelation 9:1-11). This means among other things that Apollo is the end-times angel or “King of the Abyss” that opens the bottomless pit, out of which an army of transgenic locusts erupts upon earth.
“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon” (Rev. 9: 1-11).
In view of these texts, we recall how Zeus—the Greek identity for the father of Apollo—was acknowledged as ‘Satan’ in Rev. 2:12-13. The fallen angel ‘Apollo’ who unlocks the bottomless pit and unleashes the thunderous hoards of Great Tribulation locusts is therefore none other than the son of Satan and the spirit that will inhabit Antichrist. This means The First Part of the Final Mystery of the Great Seal of the United States is a prophecy, hidden in plain site by the US Government for more than 200 years, foretelling the return of a terrifying demonic god who seizes control of earth in the New Order of the Ages. This supernatural entity was known and feared in ancient times by different names; Apollo, Osiris, and even further back as Nimrod, who Masons consider to be the father of their institution. The Second Part of the Final Mystery of the Great Seal of the United States will unveil when Apollo is scheduled to arrive according to the seal’s cipher.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but if the reader doubts the authority of the scriptures cited above concerning the coming of Apollo as Antichrist or the dedication of the Occult Hierarchy to bring the prophecy on the Great Seal about, it is my opinion that the ‘illuminated ones’ have you right where they want you. In contrast, by understanding the considerable implications of these prophecies, you can better discern why Freemason David Ovason, whose work earned praise from Fred Kleinknecht, Sovereign Grand Commander of the 33rd Degree Supreme Council of Freemasons in Washington, DC, said the dedication of the US Capital Building cornerstone had to be done at the appropriate astrological time, when “Jupiter was rising in Scorpio.” [12]

Jupiter is rising, and Scorpio, which symbolizes wrath, is ruled by Pluto, god of the underworld. Jupiter (Satan) is rising in wrath . . . or, as Revelation 12:12 puts it, Satan is coming in “great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” All of which begs the question. Why have multiple references to ‘Novus Ordo Seclorum’ by Congress members, US Presidents, International Bankers, CFR Members and other illuminatus been exponentially increasing around the world over the last decade, and why did Barack Obama feel compelled to herald the inauguration of his administration by constructing a replica of the Great Altar of Zeus, the father of Apollo? Is it because an occult elite knows something about the imminent fulfillment of the Illuminati-Masonic prophecy involving a False Yahweh (Zeus/Jupiter) and his False Christ (Apollo) coming with the full-force of Pagan Justice, when Satan’s (Saturn’s) reign over the world reaches its apex in the New World Order?

PART THIRTEEN—Read It Before It Is Banned By The US Government

Editor's note: All notations will be cited when this series of articles have concluded. The information is based on research contained in Tom Horn's upcoming new book:

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.” [3]
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.” [4] 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’. [5]
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. [6]
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].” [7]

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.

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)
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 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’ [8], 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.” [9] 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.” [10]
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.”
