QUOTE MASONIC BIBLE - George Washington the founder of this country was the first Grand Master of this commonwealth, comprising the thirteen original States of the Land of Liberty founded on the principles of masonic structure. Of the twenty nine Generals in Washington's army, twenty four were Master Masons, of the thirty seven Brigadiers, thirty were Master Masons, proving that this Land of Liberty was founded by Master Masons. Now as then, Masonry's challenge as been the Holy Bible, it's teachings from the center to the circumference symbols of the everlasting. The Washington monument is built of stone contributed by all nations of the earth to honor the founders of this Republic. "Quote Masonic Bible: "From Arlington it looks like a giant stake which God has driven saying: Here stakes a claim for the home of Liberty. The Obelisk being that of Egypt represents the power behind the founders of our Country.
This Power structure is built upon a legend of unrighteous decrees....
Isaiah 10:1 - Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed; to turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless.
Quote: Masonic Bible
The Trinity of fundamental principles of Freemasonry, Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity, are the basic principles embedded in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. They are the most fundamental and enduring principles of the foundation and growth of America's democratic form of Government. It is not therefore, strange to find that freemasonry is the formation and propagation of these concepts of Fraternity, which formed the vanguard of the Revolutionary movement which resulted in the establishment of the Great Republic.
The reality of the Constitution of the United States lies upon the Athenian Constitution on which our Constitution is based. According to the Seal of History dated 1897, there are mysteries connected with the birth of this Republic. They link themselves to those which surround the very discovery of the continent upon which it stands, and they vanish even further back into the traditions of the people who have been supplanted here. The same haze of Mystery those legends of the old world which preserved at least the memory of the Lost City of Atlantis. Rumor has ever made mention of America as the land of Republic ideas--a Country set apart at the very birth of nations, as the Land of Freedom. Long before Columbus put is foot upon it's scared soil, it had been spied out by our Northern ancestors; perhaps the very ship of Dan, "the Pioneer of Israel," had gazed their keels upon its golden sands. The fame of it was taken back toward the Eastern world and to be reserved for a Kingdom to arise in the latter days.
And at last the time had come, the morning dawned, the heir arrived, and in due time the Golden age was born anew. The New World Order had begun its age to create the institution of Fraternity, to be the rulers of destiny.

Athenian Constitution: ...[They were tried] by a court empanelled from among the noble families, and sworn upon the sacrifices. The part of accuser was taken by Myron. They were found guilty of the sacrilege, and their bodies were cast out of their graves and their race banished for evermore. In view of this expiation, Epimenides the Cretan performed a purification of the city. After this event there was contention for a long time between the upper classes and the populace. Not only was the constitution at this time oligarchical in every respect, but the poorer classes, men, women, and children, were the serfs of the rich. They were known as Pelatae and also as Hectemori, because they cultivated the lands of the rich at the rent thus indicated. The whole country was in the hands of a few persons, and if the tenants failed to pay their rent they were liable to be haled into slavery, and their children with them.
All loans secured upon the debtor's person, a custom which prevailed until the time of Solon, who was the first to appear as the champion of the people. But the hardest and bitterest part of the constitution in the eyes of the masses was their state of serfdom. Not but what they were also discontented with every other feature of their lot; for, to speak generally, they had no part nor share in anything. .
The Thesmothetae were many years afterward when these offices had already become annual, with the object that they might publicly record all legal decisions, and act as guardians of them with a view to determining the issues between litigants. Accordingly their office. Now the ancient constitution, as it existed before the time of Draco, was organized as follows. The magistrates were elected according to qualifications of birth and wealth. At first they governed for life, but subsequently for terms of ten years. The first magistrates, both in date and in importance, were the King, the Polemarch, and the Archon. The earliest of these offices was that of the King, which existed from ancestral antiquity. To this was added, secondly, the office of Polemarch, on account of some of the kings proving feeble in war; for it was on this account that Ion was invited to accept the post on an occasion of pressing need. The last of the three offices was that of the Archon, which most authorities state to have come into existence in the time of Medon. Others assign it to the time of Acastus, and adduce as proof the fact that the nine Archons swear to execute their oaths 'as in the days of Acastus,' which seems to suggest that it was in his time that the descendants of Codrus retired from the kingship in return for the prerogatives conferred upon the Archon. Whichever way it may be, the difference in date is small; but that it was the last of these magistracies to be created is shown by the fact that the Archon has no part in the ancestral sacrifices, as the King and the Polemarch have, but exclusively in those of later origin. So it is only at a comparatively late date that the office of Archon has become of great importance, through the dignity conferred by these later additions of those which have been mentioned, was never of more than annual duration. Such, then, is the relative chronological precedence of these offices. At that time the nine Archons did not all live together. The King occupied the building now known as the Boculium, near the Prytaneum, as may be seen from the fact that even to the present day the marriage of the King's wife to Dionysus takes place there. The Archon lived in the Prytaneum, the Pole march in the Epilyceum. The latter building was formerly called the Polemarcheum, but after Epilycus, during his term of office as Polemarch, had rebuilt it and fitted it up, it was called the Epilyceum.
The Thesmothetae occupied the Thesmotheteum. In the time of Solon, however, they all came together into the Thesmotheteum. They had power to decide cases finally on their own authority, not, as now, merely to hold a preliminary hearing. Such then was the arrangement of the magistracies. The Council of Areopagus had as its constitutionally assigned duty the protection of the laws; but in point of fact it administered the greater and most important part of the government of the state, and inflicted personal punishments and fines summarily upon all who misbehaved themselves. This was the natural consequence of the facts that the Archons were elected under qualifications of birth and wealth, and that the Areopagus was composed of those who had served as Archons; for which latter reason the membership of the Areopagus is the only office which has continued to be a life-magistracy to the present day.

Athenian Democracy: What's in a word? We may live in a very different and much more complex world, but without the ancient Greeks we wouldn't even have the words to talk about many of the things we care most about. Take politics for example: apart from the word itself (from polis, meaning city-state or community) many of the other basic political terms in our everyday vocabulary are borrowed from the ancient Greeks: monarchy, aristocracy, tyranny, oligarchy and - of course - democracy. The ancient Greek word demokratia was ambiguous. It meant literally 'people-power'. But who were the people to whom the power belonged? Was it all the people - the 'masses'? Or only some of the people - the duly qualified citizens? The Greek word demos could mean either. There's a theory that the word demokratia was coined by democracy's enemies, members of the rich and aristocratic elite who did not like being outvoted by the common herd, their social and economic inferiors. If this theory is right, democracy must originally have meant something like 'mob rule' or 'dictatorship of the proletariate.
The Greek Poitical system: By the time of Aristotle (fourth century BC) there were hundreds of Greek democracies. Greece in those times was not a single political entity but rather a collection of some 1,500 separate poleis or 'cities' scattered round the Mediterranean and Black Sea shores 'like frogs around a pond', as Plato once charmingly put it. Those cities that were not democracies were either oligarchies - where power was in the hands of the few richest citizens - or monarchies, called 'tyrannies' in cases where the sole ruler had usurped power by force rather than inheritance. Of the democracies, the oldest, the most stable, the most long-lived, but also the most radical, was Athens.

Salon the Law maker: Solon's task was dangerous and difficult because of the greediness of one side and the arrogance of the other. To placate both sides, Solon said: "Fairness breeds no strife." To the poor, "fairness" meant equal wealth; and to the rich, "fairness" meant keeping what they owned. Both rich and poor, therefore, believed for a while that Solon was on their side. But soon the poor people became disgusted that Solon would not use his power to seize the property of the rich. Solon's friends advised him that he would be a fool if he did not take advantage of the opportunity that fate had presented. Now that he had this power, they said, he should make himself a tyrant. Solon, who was a wise man, replied that tyranny is indeed a very pleasant peak, but there is no way down from it.
Unlike Lycurgus, Solon could not change the state from top to bottom, so he worked only on what it was possible to improve without a total revolution. He only attempted what he thought he could persuade the Athenians to accept, with a little compulsion. Wherever possible, Solon made use of euphemisms, such as calling taxes "contributions." With a judicious mixture of sweet with sour, justice with force, he managed to achieve some success. When afterwards Solon was asked whether he had made the best laws he could for the Athenians, he answered: "The best they were able to receive." Solon made it a law that a son was not bound to relieve his father's old age unless the father had set him up in some craft. He also made it a law that every man had to report each year how he made his living, and anyone found to be unemployed was punished. The laws promulgated by Solon were written on boards. Every one of the leading citizens publicly swore to observe them.
Solon's first reform was forbidding mortgages on bodies. Even with the consent of the debtor, the creditor could no longer legally enslave him and his family. Those who had already become slaves were liberated, and those who had been sold to foreigners returned to Athens as free men. Solon also ordered that all outstanding debts were forgiven, so all mortgages on land disappeared. But here Solon was disappointed by his friends. Shortly before he published his law releasing all mortgages, he told some of his most trusted friends. They immediately went out and borrowed money to buy land, giving the purchased land as security for repayment of the loan. When the law was published, they had their land free and clear. For this, Solon was suspected, but when it came to be known that he himself had lost fifteen talents by his own law, he managed to escape serious damage to his reputation. Neither the rich nor the poor got all they wanted from Solon's reforms. There was no complete redistribution of wealth as the poor had demanded, and the rich were angry about the loss of the money they were owed. Both the rich and the poor now hated Solon for not obeying their desires. Even those who had been friendly to him before now looked at him with grim faces, as an enemy. But with time and success came forgiveness. When the Athenians saw the good result of the release of debts, they appointed Solon general reformer of their law.
Solon made it a law that anyone who refused to take sides in a revolution would lose all civil rights. By this law he made sure that the good would resist the bad and not hide hoping to save themselves, or wait until they could see which side will win. When Solon was asked once which city he thought was well-governed, he said: "That city where those who have not been injured take up the cause of one who has, and prosecute the case as earnestly as if the wrong had been done to themselves." Accordingly, he allowed anyone to take up the cause of a poor man who had been injured. Solon was willing to allow the rich men to continue to be the officers, but he wanted to allow the poor citizens to participate in the government. He therefore classed the citizens according to income. The lowest class, the thetes, were ineligible for election to any office. However, the thetes were allowed to come into the assembly, and as jurors they decided cases submitted to their vote. Since Solon's laws were deliberately obscure and ambiguous, the courts had significant powers of interpretation. What had seemed an insignificant concession to the poor turned out to be a significant privilege. Solon created a supreme court, whose members were former archons [annual presidents] of Athens. Seeing that after the release of debts the people were beginning to be unruly and arrogant, Solon also created a council of four hundred -- one hundred from each of the four tribes in Athens. This was an additional legislative body, whose powers were limited to debating matters before they were submitted to the people for a vote. Nothing could be voted on until it had been vetted by the four hundred. With the supreme court and the council of four hundred as anchors, the turbulence of the people was restrained within safe limits. Solon made it a crime to defame the dead. As for the living, attacks on character were prohibited in the council-chambers of the city and at certain festivals. Solon knew that spite is part of human nature, but he established certain places where it was illegal to indulge this weakness. To suppress it completely would have been impossible. If the aim is to punish a few, moderately, as an example -- rather than many, severely, to no purpose -- the lawmaker must confine his law to the limits of human nature, and not try to legislate perfection.
Under Athenian law at that time, if a loan went into default, the creditor could seize the debtor and his family and sell them as slaves to get money to pay off the debt. The cruelty and arrogance of the rich caused the poor to form into gangs to save themselves and rescue those who had been made slaves through usury. The best men of the city saw Solon as someone who was partial to neither the rich nor the poor, and they asked him to lead. The rich Athens at this time had three factions: the people of the consented because Solon was wealthy, and the poor consented because he was honest. Solon's task was dangerous and difficult because of the greediness of one side and the arrogance of the other. To placate both sides, Solon said: "Fairness breeds no strife." To the poor, "fairness" meant equal wealth; and to the rich, "fairness" meant keeping what they owned. Both rich and poor, therefore, believed for a while that Solon was on their side. But soon the poor people became disgusted that Solon would not use his power to seize the property of the rich. Solon's friends advised him that he would be a fool if he did not take advantage of the opportunity that fate had presented. Now that he had this power, they said, he should make himself a tyrant. Solon, who was a wise man, replied that tyranny is indeed a very pleasant peak, but there is no way down from it.
Anacharsis, who was one of these wise men, came to visit Solon in Athens. When Anacharsis saw Athenian democracy at work, he remarked that it was strange that in Athens wise men spoke and fools decided. Solon admired this man's ready wit and he entertained Anacharsis as his guest for a long time. Solon showed Anacharsis some laws that he was drafting for the Athenians. Anacharsis laughed at Solon for imagining that the dishonesty and greed of the Athenians could be restrained by written laws. Such laws, said Anacharsis, are like spider webs: they catch the weak and poor, but the rich can rip right through them. hills, who favored democracy; the people of the plains, who favored oligarchy; and the people of the shore, who favored a mixed sort of government and prevented either of the other two factions from prevailing. The political turmoil had come to the point where it appeared that the only way any government at all could be established would be for some tyrant to take all power into his own hands.
The resentment of the poor against the arrogance of the rich empowers a dictator to reform the society. Supported by the parasites and criminals, the tyrant's gang of hired soldiers gradually kills off anyone who might threaten his control, and he disregards justice. No one's life and property are secure from the tyrant's power. No one dares to be the least bit original or ambitious because an army of professional informants directs the tyrant's paranoia against anyone who stands out from the crowd. With enthusiasm and innovation chilled by fear, the society becomes technologically retarded, morally timid, and artistically numb. The classical era furnishes many examples of the tyrant paradigm, such as Dionysius of Syracuse. See: Democracy and the New York Post.
Solon repealed the laws of Dracon, which punished even small offenses with death, so it was said that the laws of Dracon [codified 621 B.C.] were written in blood instead of ink. When someone asked Dracon why he had made his laws so severe, he answered: "We need the death penalty to prevent small crimes, and for bigger ones I can't think of any greater punishment." Solon reserved the death penalty for murder and manslaughter. From Dracon we get the modern adjective "draconian," which is used to describe laws where the penalties are extreme in relation to the harm of the crime. The same Draconian approach is taken today with regard to current political fads in crime, and the same flimsy justification is offered.
Solon left Athens and took a ship to Egypt [590 B.C.], thinking he could find a way to end the laws of Dracon, knowing that Egypt held the scared law of Draco. The priests of Egypt told Solon the ancient story of the lost continent of Atlantis. Solon translated the story of Atlantis into Greek verse, thinking that it would be a very good thing for the Greeks to know. Solon consulted the ancient records kept by the Egyptians and made a start on the story of Atlantis. Plato (427-347 B.C.), who was a relative of Solon, inherited the task, and his dialogue the Timaeus and a fragment entitled Critias tell part of this story. Nine thousand years (according to Plato) before Solon's visit to Egypt, a great civilization on an island in the Atlantic Ocean disappeared on a day of great rain and earthquakes. Plato did not finish the story, and what Solon wrote had disappeared. See: The connection to Greece and Egypt
As we look at the secret of American Freemasonry we need to look into the history of where the name Egypt comes from. See: Belus and Aegyptus: Aegyptus: Egypt and the Western culture: America in the age of enlightment. American Freemasonay has a process that continues from the the Greek Parmenides which was a way of truth, which extends into the pythagoras system.
Parmendies Pythagoras Socrates Plato
The legacy of Pythagoras, Socrates and Plato was claimed by the wisdom tradition of the Hellenized Jews of Alexandria, on the ground that their teachings derived from those of Moses. Through Philo of Alexandria this tradition passed into the Medieval culture, with the idea that groups of things of the same number are related or in sympathy. This idea evidently influenced Hegel in his concept of internal relations.
The ancient Pythagorean pentagram was drawn with two points up and represented the doctrine of Pentemychos means "five recesses" or "five chambers," also known as the pentagonas — the five-angle, and was the title of a work written by Pythagoras' teacher and friend Pherecydes of Syros. All this extends to the worship of Orphism. Which corresponds with Dionysus/Osiris and the mystic rites, the aspirant was made to represent, symbolically and in a dramatic form, the events connected with the slaying of the god from whom the Mysteries derived their name. After a variety of preparatory ceremonies, intended to call forth all his courage and fortitude, the aphanism or mystical death of Dionysus was figured out in the ceremonies, and the shrieks and lamentations of the initiates, with the confinement or burial of the candidate on the pastos, couch, or coffin, constituted the first part of the ceremony of initiation. Then began the search of Rhea for the remains of Dionysus, which was continued amid scenes of the greatest confusion and tumult, until, at last, the search having been successful, the mourning was turned into joy, light succeeded to darkness, and the candidate was invested with the knowledge of the secret doctrine of the Mysteries—the belief in the existence of one God, and a future state of rewards and punishments. See: Holy Bible vs. Mason Bible
Dionysus/Osiris/Cain - The Eleusinian Mysteries - The rites, cultist worships, and beliefs were kept secret, as initiation was believed to unite the worshipper with the gods and included promises of divine power and rewards. This worship was known be be held has the Highest by the Greeks and Egyptians. See also: Who is the god pan
These types of worship were written on stone, and marked upon the Pillars of Enoch/Hermes/Thoth.
When Hercules had to perform twelve labors, one of them was to fetch the Cattle of Geryon in Spain and bring it to Eurystheus. On his way to the island of Erytheia he had to cross the mountain that was once Atlas. Instead of climbing the great mountain, he cut corners and put his mind to work. He decided to use his great strength to smash through the colossal mountain that used to be a colossal giant. Hercules split it in half using his indestructible mace or club (as constructed in the zodiac). By doing so, he connected the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean sea and formed the strait of Gibraltar. One part of the split mountain is Gibraltar and the other is either Monte Hacho or Jebel Musa . These two mountains taken together have since then been known as the pillars of Hercules. Gibraltar has historically been an important base for the British Armed Forces and is the site of a Royal Navy base.
See: The pillars of Masonary. The Lost city of Atlantis, has it beginning with Cain and the City of Enoch, Cain's son. The Beginning of the Ancient mystery's and the pillars of Enoch; the City that they called the Astrologers heaven, or the city of the sun. Same as On of Egypt. Land of the gaints (Remphan). Such were the mysteries that were practiced by the rebellious builders. The pillars/columns in Freemasonry have the ancient beginning with Dionysus/Osiris/Cain, and the teachings of Hermes/Thoth, the son of Cain who was Enoch; who had understanding in science to create secret arts of initiation, Cain who had understanding is masonry would construct the first city ever built. For Cain builded a city and named it after his son Enoch. See Genesis 5:17. It is said that Enoch, Cain’s son was learned in the Science of the stars, and understood them using geomancy by geomorphology to project and form certain structures for worship; for the stars told the journey and battles of the host of heaven, (zodiac) and the innate connection between the male and female. This city would be built according to the astrologers heavens, where the celestial bodies revolve in accordance with the sun and the moon, and the creatures of the sea and beast of the earth. Enoch/Hermes was also the god of magic, writing, medicine, and mathematics. The mysteries of this science was made known to Adam and Eve after The serpent beguiled Eve, and she ate of the fruit of the tree, and Eve gave unto Adam and he did eat of the fruit of the tree of Knowledge of good and evil. These mysteries would be handed down through Cain unto his son Enoch, and unto Enoch son Lamech who eventually would slay Cain his Grandfather. So the great rebellion would be established for Sa-tawn Kingdom on earth. See Genesis 4:23,24.
For God saw the wickedness of Man was great in the Earth in those days and that every imagination of thought of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man who I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and creeping thing, and the fowls of the air for it repenteth me that I have made them, for the earth was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. And the Lord told Noah, the end of all flesh is come before me, for the earth is filled with violence through them, and behold I will destroy them with the earth. See Genesis 6:5-13. God gave Noah instruction to build an Ark, the knowledge of geometry. This knowledge was instructed unto Noah, by God; even all the measurements, and Noah did as the Lord commanded him. It seems that at the time Noah and his sons are building this ark, that the hearts of men were being troubled maybe even mocking Noah for building this boat; for it seemed strange unto them, probley because never did rain fall from the heavens, but there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the earth. In those days God did not cause it to rain upon the earth. See Genesis 2:5,6. As Noah and his sons continues to built this massive Ark; some would say that Noah was nuts, but others knew something was up, and decided to preserve the forbidden Knowledge while the ark was in building.
Masonry claims that Enoch, Cain son had written this science upon two pillars. To understand the word pillar we must take a look at the word Chiun, which denotes the house of vanity, a place of worship and initiation; Baal-peor - same as Aven which is the city on On of Egypt. This Chiun meaning: to erect an idol and describe thereon a writing known as euphemism, to stand perpendicular, exactly upright side by side, representing two great Pillars that would be united as one under the god to whom they were erected. As stated in Genesis the serpent beguiled eve and told her, that God knows that in the day you eat their of, that your eyes shall be opened, and you would becomes gods knowing good and evil. Genesis 3:5. Cain would Eventually become a god and the Pillars that would be erected unto him would become the Arch or portal that would lead into the teachings of the great master Baal (Sa-tawn), who illuminated the first Architect, CAIN who was marked by the Almighty God for his rebellion against his brother. But as noted above wickedness was upon the whole face of the earth and all flesh and corrupted themselves under the perverseness of these teachings, and God was moved to destroy it from the earth, but THE ALMIGHTY found one righteous that had not turned from the truth, but worshiped the God who created the host of heaven, the righteous NOAH.
Noah and his sons were all learned in the Art of Masonry. The next cities to be built according to Genesis 10:10; would be Ham’s son Cush who bore Nimrod who constructed the Kingdom of Babel, and Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. And they said go let us build a city and a great tower (representing pyramidal), that would reach unto heaven. The Holy Bible states that they said that they wanted to make a name for themselves, lest they would be scattered upon the face on the earth. And God came down to look at the city and the tower. This they begin to do, and God said behold the people are one, and they all have one language, and nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. And God came down and confused their language and scattered them abroad upon the face of the earth and they left off to build the city. Then we see Shem’s son Asshur leaving out of that land to builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah, and Resen: THE SAME IS A GREAT CITY. Then Mizraim sons Ludim, and Anamimm, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim, and Pathrusim, and Casluhim out of who came PHILISTIM,(Phoenicia - Tyre -Palestine), and CAPHTORIM (Capthor - Rahab - Egypt). See Ancient Map on page Egypt in the news.
The Freemasons state that Enoch Cain son, had written the science’s of the Zodiac upon 2 pillars; which were found by Ham who was the Father of Mizraim; who found the lost ancient city AYIN (Atlantis) same as ON of (Egypt), Heliopolis the city of Enoch built by Cain before the flood. Obelisks were one of Egypt's most ancient symbolic structures that evolved out of an irregular shaped upright sacred stone. These predecessors of the fully developed obelisks originated in the sun cult at Heliopolis during Egypt's earliest period. We see definite refinement in their shape in the sun temples of the 5th dynasty, though in those monuments they were more squat, as well as the very center of attention. However, the fully developed obelisks were most common during Egypt's new kingdom, when they were often erected in pairs. Often, these were placed in front of the pylons but at times they were also placed on the central axis of the complex. However, they usually lay outside of the main temple structure.
Cleopatra's Needle, Central Park, New York and Cleopatra's Needle, London
Nearly every empire worthy of the name—from ancient Rome to the United States—has sought an Egyptian obelisk to place in the center of a ceremonial space. Obelisks—giant standing stones, invented in Ancient Egypt as sacred objects—serve no practical purpose. For much of their history their inscriptions, in Egyptian hieroglyphics, were completely inscrutable. Yet over the centuries dozens of obelisks have made the voyage from Egypt to Rome, Constantinople, and Florence; to Paris, London, and New York. New obelisks and even obelisk-shaped buildings rose as well—the Washington Monument being a noted example. Obelisks, everyone seems to sense, connote some very special sort of power.
In each culture obelisks have taken on new meanings and associations. To the Egyptians, the obelisk was the symbol of a pharaoh’s right to rule and connection to the divine. In ancient Rome, obelisks were the embodiment of Rome's coming of age as an empire. To nineteenth-century New Yorkers, the obelisk in Central Park stood for their country’s rejection of the trappings of empire just as it was itself beginning to acquire imperial power. And to a twentieth-century reader of Freud, the obelisk had anatomical and psychological connotations.
These so called pillars were symbols of Osiris and Isis, which were situated infront of a (peak) of a ancient mountain (pyramid) showing it’s power through the sun god in the regeneration of life and death, from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Also Known as the Djed pillars.
A branch off of the tree of knowledge of good and evil would become Cain's rod, which was handed down unto his son Enoch. Let take a look at the walking stick/branch that Cain was given when he was cast out from the presence of the Lord. Genesis 4:13-16...
Caduceus Star of Remphan/wand
The Caduceus becomes the Medical symbol - The Hippocratic Oath of Physicians:
I swear by Apollo Physician and Asclepius and Hygieia and Panaceia and all the gods and goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will fulfil according to my ability and judgment this oath and this covenant: To hold him who has taught me this art as equal to my parents and to live my life in partnership with him, and if he is in need of money to give him a share of mine, and to regard his offspring as equal to my brothers in male lineage and to teach them this art - if they desire to learn it - without fee and covenant; to give a share of precepts and oral instruction and all the other learning to my sons and to the sons of him who has instructed me and to pupils who have signed the covenant and have taken an oath according to the medical law, but no one else. I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice. I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody who asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give to a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art. I will not use the knife, not even on sufferers from stone, but will withdraw in favor of such men as are engaged in this work. Whatever houses I may visit, I will come for the benefit of the sick, remaining free of all intentional injustice, of all mischief and in particular of sexual relations with both female and male persons, be they free or slaves. What I may see or hear in the course of the treatment or even outside of the treatment in regard to the life of men, which on no account one must spread abroad, I will keep to myself, holding such things shameful to be spoken about. If I fulfil this oath and do not violate it, may it be granted to me to enjoy life and art, being honored with fame among all men for all time to come; if I transgress it and swear falsely, may the opposite of all this be my lot.

The rod/caduceus of Enoch/Hermes/Thoth, would also represent the power of the sun god by which magic was devised. This rod that had entwined serpents and wings held the power of host of heaven, to make one believe that the man ruling was the god or Ra- incarnated in man thus becoming a god on earth. Suggesting that the branch (rod) held the power that was written on the pillars which connected the innate of male and female as partaking in the forbidden fruit that was guarded by the serpent who had convinced the woman to unite with the man to become triune with this wisdom of a secret knowledge that would make them gods. These pillars represented in the architectural language symbolized an extremely clear and restrictive prohibition, as the entrance to a sacred and secret place. A temple of worship to the sun god who’s pillars were representations of the erected edifice unto Chinun as the god of writing and science and mathematics. The founder of the mysteries of the zodiac, and there significance unto man, and the worship of the host of heaven. The pillars were very important to the worship of the sun god, and were and are still found in front of the most scared temples or buildings, in many Nations. These Pillars would signify the Royal emblem of strength and establishment. Strength, (MALE) representing military might, and establishment (FEMALE) representing a code of laws. The pillars were represented by male and female, the sign of fertility meaning one chosen of the Sun god to insure ones birthright to rule, being the Law.
Lets now begin to connect these mysteries that were handed down through the ages, only to bring a new era of understanding, and the meaning of fraternity, which would lead to the doctrine of freemasonry.
The Phoenicians of Tyre extended the worship of Baal/Moloch in the particular Tyrian manifestation Baal Melqart, ('the baal (king) of the city') to Phoenician colonies around the mediteranean, the greatest of which was Carthage in North Africa only to reunited under a new Master Hiram King of Tyre, and the building commencement of the house Solomon was in building for 13 years. This would once again be the establishment of the Dionysiac fraternity at the city of Tyre, and the initiation of “Hiram the builder” into its mysteries. Let us now pursue the chain of historical events which finally united this purest branch of the spurious freemasonry of the pagan nations with the primitive freemasonry of the Jews at Jerusalem.
The most famous of these pillars would be the pillars that Solomon King of Israel had built being named, Jachin and Boaz . These pillars will connect the mysteries and erect the edifice that conjugates the term Royal Arch. Let take a look at the (three) Master Mason’s; meaning (TWO ARCHITECTS, AND THE MASTER BUILDER) that would bring to light the hidden meaning of the Royal Arch chapter in the Degrees of Freemasonry. 1st. Solomon King Israel, who took to wife the daughter of Pharaoh ,and Solomon brought her into the city of David until he had made an end of building his own house, and the house of the Lord and the wall of Jerusalem round about. (I Kings 3:1). 2nd, King Hiram of Tyre who was a lover of David, Solomon’s father, and King Hiram and Solomon they two made a league together. (1 Kings 5:1-12). 3 rd, Hiram, who was a widow’s son of the tribe of Naphtali, and his Father was a man of Trye, a worker in brass: and he was filled with wisdom, and understanding , and cunning to work all works of brass.
It was Hiram King of Tyre who laid the foundations for the great Tyrian sea empire that knew no equal in ancient history." The ‘Golden Age' of Phoenicia/Tyre began during his reign, but it wasn't all his doing. Tyre was aided by the waning power of Egypt, by the defeat of the Philistines in 975 by David, and by the unification of Israel. Israel was a state friendly to Tyre (Hiram's diplomatic skills may have had to do with this), and one which had few ships, a large market of customers for Tyre's trade, and access to land trade routes with Mesopotamia. The worship of Tyre's special deity, Melkarth, and Phoenician Hercules, became the most wide-spread religion in the ancient world. His shrines dotted the Mediterranean and were planted by colonists even beyond the Straits of Gibraltar. The mountains on either side of Gibraltar were named the Pillars of Melkarth, or, as the Greeks called them, the pillars of Hercules; for the legends of Melkarth, his labors, and his wanderings, were ascribed by the Greeks to Hercules, their own similar deity.
In the absence of any complete Phoenician history, the first ruler of Tyre of whom we have definite knowledge is that Hiram, or Huram, of whom the Bible tells as a contemporary of David and Solomon. From other sources we learn that Hiram came to the throne about 980 B.C. as a youth of nineteen, and ruled for nearly forty years.
See Ezekiel chapter 27 & 28
We should not think of him merely as the ally of the Hebrew kings, sending them cedars from Lebanon for the construction of their temple and palaces. It seems clear that the Hebrews looked up to Hiram and his Phoenicians with admiration as a more cultured race. Hiram dispatched to Jerusalem a numerous body of Phoenician artists and overseers, who directed almost every step of Solomon's buildings. Hence, both the art and architecture of the Hebrews were chiefly Tyrian.
Such were the mysteries that were practiced by the architect, the Freemasons, so to speak of Asia Minor. At Tyre, the richest and most important city of that region, a city memorable for the splendor and magnificence of the buildings with which it was decorated, there were colonies or lodges of these mystic architects; and this fact I request that you will bear in mind, as it forms an important link in the chain that connects the Dionysiacs with the Freemasons. But to make every link in this chain of connection complete, it is necessary that the mystic artists of Tyre should be proved to be at least contemporaneous with the building of King Solomon's temple; and the evidence of that fact I shall now attempt to produce
To this man—this widow's son, Hiram (as Scripture history, as well as Masonic tradition informs us)—was entrusted by King Solomon an important position among the workmen who held the secrets of the sacred edifice, which was constructed on Mount Moriah. His knowledge and experience as an artificer, and his eminent skill in every kind of “curious and cunning workmanship,” readily placed him at the head of both the Jewish and Tyrian craftsmen, as the chief builder and principal conductor of the works; and it is to him, by means of the large authority which this position gave him, that we attribute the union of two people, so antagonistically in race, so dissimilar in manners, and so opposed in religion, as the Jews and Tyrians, in one common brotherhood, which resulted in the organization of the institution a Fraternity thus established the rites of Ititations. This Hiram, as a Tyrian and an artificer, must have been connected with the Dionysiac CRAFT; nor could he have been a very humble or inconspicuous member, if we may judge of his rank in the society, from the amount of talent which he is said to have possessed, and from the elevated position that he held in the affections, and at the court, of the king of Tyre. He must, therefore, have been well acquainted with all the ceremonial usages of the Dionysiac artificers, and must have enjoyed a long experience of the advantages of the government and discipline which they practiced in the erection of the many sacred edifices in which they were engaged. A portion of these ceremonial usages and of this discipline he would naturally be inclined to introduce among the workmen at Jerusalem. He therefore united them in a society, similar in many respects to that of the Dionysiac artificers. He inculcated lessons of his love for David, and made a league with Solomon, he established a ceremony of initiation, to test experimentally the fortitude and worth of the candidate; adopted modes of recognition; and impressed the obligations of duty and principles of morality by means of symbols and allegories, which represents ICONOLOGY.
When Solomon, king of Israel, was about to build, in accordance with the purposes of his father, David, “a house unto the name of the Lord his God,” and Solomon's own house, he made his intention known to Hiram, king of Tyre, and they two made a league together; and because he was well aware of the architectural skill of the Tyrian Dionysiacs, he besought that monarch's assistance to enable him to carry his pious design into execution. Scripture informs us that Hiram complied with the request of Solomon, and sent him the necessary workmen to assist him in the glorious undertaking. Among others, he sent an architect, who is briefly described, in the First Book of Kings, as “a widow's son, of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father a man of Tyre, a worker in brass, a man filled with wisdom and understanding and cunning to work all works in brass;” and more fully, in the second book of Chronicles, as “a cunning man, endued with understanding of Hiram my father's, the son of a woman of the daughters of Dan, and his father, a man of Tyre, skilful to work in gold, and in silver, in brass, in iron, in stone, and in timber, in purple, in blue, and in fine linen and in crimson, also to grave any manner of graving, and to find out any device which shall be put to him.”
As we take a look at Solomon house that was in building for 13 years. The Connection is with the porch that Solomon built. Now this Porch represents a portal that united the connecting pillars. This would be the edifice in freemasonry or keystone that represented the Arch that would lead into another part of the house that was a sacred place.
According to the Act of Congress dated 1835 by John Fellows, and in the southern district of New York, the Arch supported by the two pillars is a representation of the simicircle made by the apparent course of the sun in the upper himisphere fron Aries to Libra inclusive.
Solomon said that this porch represented the daughter of Pharaoh who he also made a house for. And for this cause he would send and fetch Hiram a widows son of the tribe of Naphtali. This edifice, (the porch) would be the Royal Arch of Solomon that would be a entry into another court of Pharaoh's daughter which was connected to Solomon house.
I Kings 7: 15, also see that the Pillars were set up in the porch of the temple. I Kings 7:21 This would become the Royal Arch in Freemasonry known as Succoth Benoth, which represented the booths of the daughters brothels meaning: IDOLATROUS ROOMS OF IMPURE PURPOSES. A entwined lair, a covert den, pavillion, tabernacle. A secret place for only the Kings and master builders. For the master builders were given the status of a prince.
But King Solomon loved many strange women together with the daughter of Pharaoh. See: I Kings chapter 11. Solomon heart is turned to other gods. The Mysteries are revived under Solomon and the perversness of Egypt is made known, and Hiram the Master builder is not murdered and the keystone is not missing; that is just an allegory that the speculative freemason had to tie in to hide the real master mason they worship, that being Cain, for it was he that was slain. See: Genesis 5:23,24.

For Draconian Law had it's beginning in Egypt; it is said that the Clandestine of Freemasonry kept the Ancient charge as the rule of Law of Draco under Cain. The Dragon Court today can be identified at the time of Rahab's power under Ptah a local god of memphis, he was considered the god of craftsmen, See: The god Ptah
Signs and token's of the Ancient Charge of the Ancient Mason: The Law
Masons and non-Masons alike have explained the need for secret grips and signals by stating that medieval stonemasons were itinerant workers, traveling from castles job to cathedral sites as work was available. Because they had no permanent base like other guilds, they would need secret signs by which to identify each other to maintain their "closed shop" monopoly status. With no fixed home, they would meet in lodges to discuss their affairs. That theory would have us believe that constructing an abbey, a castle, or a cathedral was not unlike throwing up prefabricated tract housing with temporary workers. To build a castle, in fact, might take five to twenty years, and the great Gothic cathedrals were under construction for generations, with some taking as much as a century to complete. The theory would also require that the structure was being built outside the jurisdiction of the authority of the guild charter, which would require permission for legal travel. Evidence of membership in that guild would not have to have been kept a secret, nor would the evidence of such membership have been limited to verbal communication.
Freemasons have a few ancient documents they call the "Old Charges of Masonry," the oldest of which appears to date from the fourteenth century. They set forth rules of conduct and responsibility that have been assumed to relate to the conduct of the medieval stonemasons' guild. One of these charges is that no member is to reveal any secret of any brother that might cost him his life and property. The only such secret, one that would cost a man his life and property, would have been that he was guilty of treason or heresy, or, as is often the case when there is a state religion, both. Another charge is that no visiting brother is to go into the town without a local brother to "witness" for him. If a stonemason had legitimate employment with the local lord or bishop, he would have had no need for anyone to witness for him (evidence knowledge of him). On the other hand, if he had no proof of employment, had no travel pass and no means to explain his business in the town, he could and would have been apprehended and thrown into jail straightaway and held there until the matter was settled. A known local witness could provide a believable cover story and verification of a real or assumed identity. Most important, the resident brother could steer the visitor away from the very people and places that might cause the questions to come up.
Still another old charge was that the visiting brother be given "employment" for two weeks, then given some money and put on the road to the next lodge. We should not be asked to believe that medieval guilds of master craftsmen made a practice of hiring men they didn't need and bestowing money on itinerant stonemasons passing through. That kind of treatment is much more likely to be extended to a man on the run, who would be given lodging for up to two weeks, not "employment." This brotherhood was a secret organization that somehow included men being, or aiding and abetting, heretics and traitors. It was vital that they stick together.
The medieval guilds were very religious, and any guild counting on the Roman Catholic church as its major customer would have been especially and overtly devout. Freemasonry, however, admits any believer in a monotheistic God. The ritual makes no mention of Jesus Christ, or of his Mother, while many guilds were in the forefront of the growing special veneration of Mary. How could such a transition have taken place? It didn't.
The oldest known Masonic text, the "old charges," which dates at least as far back as 1400, sets out a legendary heritage that begins with the antediluvian patriarch Cain, then to Jabal, ("the which science is called masonries") and wrote down his findings on pillars of stone. After Noah's flood destroyed all human civilization, the Egyptian sage Ham rediscovered this knowledge and passed it on in a lineage that includes Nimrod. The builder of Babel....
The medieval guild, a combination of trade union and regulated monopoly, had the responsibility of inducting trainees and preserving trade secrets; this was the origin of the famous Masonic passwords and secret handgrips. And because medieval civilization was steeped in religion, spiritual and ethical instruction was included in the apprentices' training, giving rise to the lessons imparted in the Masonic degrees. The secrets were also built into the structure or building to give honor of worship to their diety.

In the early modern period, the guild system began to break down; as it did, the associations of practicing stoneworkers -- what is known as "operative Masonry" -- began to evolve into the "speculative Masonry" of today's lodges. Here the old symbolism of plumb and square, compass and gauge, for moral and ethical virtues was retained, but now purely symbolically. Eventually the "operative" side was lost altogether and Masons were drawn chiefly from them nobility and bourgeoisie.

The Holy Roman Empire was formally founded in the year 800 by Charlemagne, King of the Franks and Lombards, who revived the Imperial August Title of Roman Emperor in the West. According to Carolingian theory, the Roman Empire had merely been suspended, not ended, by the abdication of the last Roman Emperor Romulus Augustus in 476. On Christmas Day, In the year 800 AD Pope Leo III, Crowned Charlemagne Roman Emperor, in St.Peters, Rome, probably perceived more as a personal Imperial Title than as a reference to a particular Territorial Rule.
The Holy Roman Empire was once famously dismissed by Voltaire as neither Holy, Roman, nor an Empire, despite covering most of central Europe for over a thousand years, its history was intricately interwoven with that of Europe as a whole. The ghosts of the old Empire still haunt the Twenty-First century Europe in the guise of many institutions and ideals as well as political divisions and factional struggles.
From the death of Arnulf (899), the last Carolingian to hold the Imperial Title, until Emperor Otto’s Coronation in Rome by Pope John XII, various rulers bore the Imperial Title but exercised no authority; among them were Louis III, King of Provence, and Berengar I, King of Italy. From the time of Otto's reign the Imperial office was based on the German Kingship. The German King, elected by the German Princes, automatically sought Imperial Coronation by the Pope, the Churchmen who crowned the Emperors, and thus actually sustained the Empire, considered it to be the Church's Secular arm, sharing responsibility for the welfare and spread of the Christian faith and duty-bound to protect the Papacy. This view of the relationship between Church and state, which dated from the reign of Roman Emperor Constantine I, was generally accepted by both Emperors and Popes. In practice, however, this partnership seldom worked smoothly, as one of the partners inevitably tried to dominate the other. Frequent fluctuations in the actual power and vitality of each individual as well as changes in the prevailing political and theological theories gave a fluid, dynamic quality to the empire's history. After 1045 a King who was not yet Crowned Emperor was known as King of the Romans, a Title that asserted his right to the Imperial Throne and implied that he was Emperor-designate. Not every German King became Emperor, however, because the Popes, especially when elections to the Kingships were disputed, often claimed that the selection of the Emperor was their prerogative. Despite the fact that the German Kingship and the Imperial office were technically elective, they tended to become hereditary. At times the electors, the German Princes who approved the succession to the German Kingship, exercised real authority in choosing the King, although Papal confirmation was still necessary for accession to the Imperial Throne.
Freemasonry is a reformulation of the knowledge possessed by that mysterious medieval order known as the Knights Templar’s.
The Templar’s reached the zenith of their might in the thirteenth century, when they wielded great power not only in the Holy Land but in Europe. But when Palestine fell back into Muslim hands in 1291, the Templar’s lost their apparent reason for existence, and various powers, including the pope, made plans to consolidate them with their rival order, the Knights Hospitallers. The Templar’s, perhaps over confident of their prestige, did not maneuver very capably in this situation. Many were rounded up, tortured, and executed.
Not all the Templar’s fell into their enemies' hands. Many of the knights were never caught, and a large Templar fleet consisting of eighteen ships at the French harbor of La Rochelle vanished before they could be seized.
Many churches, buildings and castles of magnificence begin to rise up!!!!!
After this many Templar’s seem to have taken refuge in Scotland, whose king, Robert the Bruce, was at that time under excommunication by Rome and was also fighting to keep his country free from English rule. The Scottish cause was not faring well; the English had set up strongholds throughout much of Scotland, and it seemed only a matter of time before the nation fell under England's sway.
But in 1314 the tide turned decisively. At the celebrated Battle of Bannockburn, Robert the Bruce routed English forces two and a half times the size of his own, guaranteeing Scotland's independence for the next 300 years. Oddly enough, even here the battle seemed to be going against the Scots when at the last moment a mysterious force came to their aid. Accounts of this event are garbled; the best-known version says the camp followers of the Scottish army entered the fray, blowing horns and waving homemade flags. Mistaking them for real reinforcements, the English panicked and fled.
The Knights' involvement in banking grew over time into a new basis for, as Templar’s became increasingly involved in banking activities. One indication of their powerful political connections is that the Templar’s' involvement in did not lead to more controversy within the Order and the church at large. The charge was typically sidestepped, by a stipulation that the Templar’s retained the rights to the production of mortgaged property.
The Templar’s' political connections and awareness of the essentially urban and commercial nature of the Outremer communities naturally led the Order to a position of significant power, both in Europe and Holy Land. Their success attracted the concern of many other orders and eventually that of the nobility and monarchs of Europe as well, who were at this time seeking to monopolize control of money and banking after a long chaotic period in civil society, especially the Church and its lay orders, had dominated financial activities. The Templar’s' holdings were extensive both in Europe and the Middle East, including for a time the entire island Cyprus.
On October 13, 1307, what may have been all the Knights Templar in France were simultaneously arrested by agents of King Philip the Fair (Philippe le Bel), to later be tortured into admitting heresy in the Order. (Some believe this act to be the origin of superstition regarding (Friday the 13th.) One view is that Philip, who seized the treasury and broke up the monastic banking system, simply sought to control it for himself. Due to his costly war with England at that time, it would seem to be intent of access to finances for his costly war. These events, and the Templar’s' original banking of assets for suddenly mobile depositors, were two of many shifts towards a system military fiat to back money, removing this power from Church orders. Seeing the fate of the Templar’s, the Hospitallers of St John of Jerusalem and of Rhodes and of Malta were also convinced to give up banking at this time.
Many kings and nobles supported the Knights at that time, and only dissolved the order in their fiefs when so commanded Robert the Bruce, King of the Scots, had already been excommunicated for other reasons, and was therefore not disposed to pay heed to Papal commands. As a result many of the order fled to Scotland and to Portugal, where the order's name was changed to "Order of Christ" and was believed to have contributed to the first naval discoveries of the Portuguese.
The Scottish Templar’s aided King of Scots Robert the Bruce in his war against England, and helped to declare Scotland independent. The Scottish Templar’s still exist today, and are the last connection to the original Knights Templar. Former head of world Templar’s Baron Leuprecht willed the Order of Scotland to be autonomous and superior in rank to all worldwide Templar’s.
This order then was lead by HSE Frank Sherry, and today by Chef Mondial Grand Prior General James M McGrath.
Crusader Godfrey of Boulogne (1060-July 1100), DeBouillon, Duke of Lower Lorraine, later King of Jerusalem. De Bouillon, Son of Eustace, Count Boulogne and Saint Ida of Provence. Godfrey had Crusader brothers, Baldwin (Baldwin I of Jerusalem) and Eustace III. Godfrey is tall with yellow beard and hair. He raises Crusading money by blackmailing Jews. One source says, Godfrey is buried beside his brother Baldwin. Godfrey, a pious man, was not a greatly successful Duke of Lower Lorraine, which title he had by appointment from Henry IV. Before he went Crusading, Godfrey was convinced he would do well in the Holy Land, so he "burned his bridges at home", and sold his castle of Bouillon. Godfrey's crusaders were from Flanders and Lorraine. He was chosen Protector of the Holy Sepulcher, and he was chosen/elected by Crusaders as King of Jerusalem in 1099, an honor he declined.

Crusader Baldwin of Boulogne (1100-1118), De Bouillon, Count Edessa, Baldwin I, first King of Jerusalem (crowned 9 November, 1100, ruling to 1118); son of Saint Ida of Provence. He had three wives, being Miss Unknown Melitene of Armenia; Adelaide or Adelasia De Savona/Salona (as from a website) Countess of Sicily), and Godvere of Tosny. (He has three wives in an Outremer table by Runciman, Vol. 2, table, being Godvere of Tosni; daughter of Thatoul (Armenia?); Adelaide, Countess of Sicily. He is a cousin of Baldwin II de Bourg, who succeeds him. He is crowned first King of Jerusalem on 9 November, 1100. He also became a co-ruler of Armenia, these two brothers would claim decent from Charlemagne. In 1338 at the diets of Rhense and Frankfurt the German Princes proclaimed the electors’ right to choose the Emperor without papal intervention. The Golden Bull of 1356 issued by Emperor Charles IV reaffirmed this and regulated the election procedure. Emperors continued to be crowned by the Pope until after the coronation (1530) of the Emperor Charles V. Thereafter, following the precedent (1508) of Emperor Maximilian I, they were Crowned at Frankfurt. Several early Emperors were also Crowned King of Italy with the Iron Crown of the Lombards. After 1438 the Imperial office was held, with one exception, by the House of Hapsburg. The Empire was justified by the claim that, just as the Pope was the Vicar of God on earth in spiritual matters, so the Emperor was God’s temporal Vicar; hence he claimed to be the supreme Temporal Ruler of Christendom. Actually, the power of the Emperor never equaled his pretensions. Although the Emperors were accorded diplomatic precedence over other Sovereigns Rulers, their Suzerainty early ceased over France, Italy, Denmark, Poland, and Hungary; and their control over England, Sweden, and Spain was never more than nominal.
The authority of the Emperors in Italy and Germany was sometimes nonexistent, sometimes real. The territorial limits of the Empire varied, but it generally included Germany, Austria, Bohemia and Moravia, parts of Northern Italy, present-day Belgium, and, until 1648, the Netherlands and Switzerland. Some countries (e.g., Hungary) were ruled by the Emperor or Imperial Prince but were outside the Empire, while others (e.g., Flanders, Pomerania, Schleswig, and Holstein) were part of the Empire but were Ruled by foreign Princes who held their lands in fief from the Emperor and took part in the Imperial diet. When Otto I became Emperor, he renewed the traditions of the Carolingian Empire that had been eroding for decades before Arnulf’s death. Otto’s Empire comprised the German Duchies, Lorraine (or Lotharingia), Italy, and Burgundy, which had its own nominal King. Burgundy was formally annexed in 1033. The Imperial position, however, was precarious from the start. A conflict over the relationship between the Papacy and the Imperial Throne resulted in the investiture controversy during the reign of Henry IV (1084–1105), who appointed Bishops to three Sees already under the direction of Papal appointees. He was also suspected of tolerating simony and other practices that the Pope was trying to curb. In 1076, Henry IV withdrew his obedience to Pope Gregory VII and was excommunicated. Subsequent struggles between the Popes Alexander III, Gregory IX, and Innocent IV and the Emperors Frederick I and Frederick II concerned papal Sovereignty in Italy. The Papacy was victorious, and the Emperors ceased to interfere seriously with Papal affairs except during the Great Schism of the 15th century, and in the Italian Wars of the 16th century. Also untenable was the dual position of the Emperors as Rulers of Germany and of Italy; geography as well as cultural and political conditions separated the two Countries. The defense of the Empire against foreign attack was made more difficult by the repeated attempts of the Emperors to maintain their authority in Italy against the opposition of the city-states the Papacy, and the petty Princes. Frederick I failed to suppress the Lombard League, which had Papal support. Frederick II, after inheriting Naples and Sicily, was primarily interested in Italian affairs; his conflict with the Papacy produced the Feud between Guelph’s and Ghibellines throughout Italy and ruined the Imperial Authority there. The death (1254) of Conrad IV, the last ruling Hohenstaufen, was followed by an interregnum of 19 years. Opposing claimants to the Imperial Crown were unable to exercise authority during this period, and the power of the Emperor declined considerably. The Election (1273) of the Emperor Rudolf I as the first Hapsburg German King restored some order, but after his death rival claimants renewed the strife. The effect of continued warfare and weak monarchs increased the power of the German Princes, particularly the dukes of the great Duchies of Bavaria, Saxony, Swabia, Franconia, Thuringia, and Upper and Lower Lorraine. The Golden Bull of 1356 conceded the Princes’ dominance over the monarchy. The Emperors maintained some authority against the nobles with the support of the towns and of the great Ecclesiastical Princes (e.g., the archbishop-electors of Cologne, Mainz, and Trier), who were Imperial appointees. As the German towns grew in wealth and power, they entered leagues for defense against the Nobles. Since they acted as a counterbalance to the Nobility, they were generally favored by the Emperors, who made them free Imperial cities with a voice in the diet.

The mysteries of this Great power to rule had been lost until the time came when they were to be revieved once more. The Dragon Court was reformed once again in 1408 AD: by Emperor Sigismund von Luxembourg King of Hungry who became Emperor of Roman Empire. But there is at the fore front of this those that would say that the King of Hungry was not in the Royal bloodline, but drew up a pact with twenty three royals and Nobles who swore to observe the true and pure Fraternity with in Societas Draconis, known as the Order of the DRAGON, thus bringing him into power to become the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. But some admit that the true blood line was with Godfroi de Vere de Bouillon, and the house of Vere. Crusader of the Knight Templar. See: Ordo Draconis
We might ask how the Templar’s turned into the Freemasons. To have a sense of this, we must look at a small and quirky chapel a few miles south of Edinburgh, known as Rosslyn. It is on the estate of the St. Clair or Sinclair family, and was built between 1441 and 1486. Though ostensibly the private chapel of an aristocratic family, it has never served as such; the St. Clair’s' chapel is in their house.
Moreover Rosslyn seems to possess an enormous number of non-Christian motifs. "The figure that occurs most frequently," write Baigent and Leigh "is the 'Green Man' -- a human head with vines issuing from its mouth and sometimes its ears, then spreading wildly, in tangled proliferation, over the walls." Is this "Green Man" connected with "Baphomet," and Osiris the bearded head that the Templar’s' enemies accused them of worshiping? Templar’s had conducted excavations during their time in the Holy Land. Rosslyn even has two pillars, "the apprentice's pillar" and "the Mason's pillar," which, according to Knight and Lomas, correspond to the two pillars, Jachin and Boaz, of the Jerusalem Temple -- and of the Masonic lodge. See link: Architecture and the Rossyln Chapel
But one of the most intriguing pieces of evidence from Rosslyn is a carving reproduced on page 26 of this issue. Knight claims that it portrays the astonishing scene of a first-degree Masonic initiation -- conducted by a figure in Templar garb. Many modern Freemasons believe that their organization is descended from the semi-literate working-class ritual practices of the medieval guilds of stonemasons. It is an origin theory that is riddled with problems, yet it did seem to explain the well-documented references to the early operative lodges of Scotland. The true reason is more the reverse: it was speculative masons (Templar’s) who adopted operative masons (stoneworkers) and introduced them to lower-level secrets concerning Solomon's Temple.

Answer: Because it is said the Brotherhood of Freemasons have risen from them...
The War of the Roses was a civil war in England that lasted from 1455-1487. These thirty years of warfare were even more destructive to England than the Hundred Years War had been in the previous century. (Most of the fighting in the Hundred Years War took place in France, which meant most of the military damage affected the French peasantry rather than the English. In the War of the Roses, most of the fighting occurred in England, and thus the loss of life and property was much greater for English citizens.) It was a struggle between the families descended through Edward III and the families descended from Henry IV to claim the throne. The last Angevin ruler, King Richard II died without an heir. He had been overthrown and murdered by Henry IV (Henry Bolingbroke, who was of the House of Lancaster through his father John of Gaunt). Henry IV's descendants and their supporters were the Lancastrian faction. The other branch, descended from Edward IV, were associated with families in the North of England, particularly the House of York and Richard of York. They are called the Yorkist faction.
The exact image of warring flowers was a late invention, and the general idea of each rose being a factional symbol originates in Shakespeare’s day. In Renaissance literature, writers linked the House of York with a white rose and the House of Lancaster with a red rose. For instance, in Henry VI, Part One, Act II, scene iv, lines 25-135, Shakespeare depicts the minor lords as choosing their factions symbolically by plucking either white or red roses from a garden. The play dates back to 1592 or so. For instance, in lines 124-128, we read the following: Warwick: And here I prophesy: this brawl today Grown to this faction in the Temple garden, Shall send, between the Red Rose and the White. A thousand souls to death and deadly night.
Henry VII ends the war of the roses, and he established the Court of the Star Chamber to increase royal involvement in civil and criminal cases; and as an alternative to a revenue tax disbursement from Parliament, he imposed forced loans and grants on the nobility. See link: The star chamber
Upon Instituting the Star Chamber, by which means he was able to restrict the power of the nobles, greatly increasing the power of the crown. He accumulated a vast fortune.
Henry's mistrust of the nobility derived from his experiences in the Wars of the Roses - a majority remained dangerously neutral until the very end. His skill at by-passing Parliament (and thus, the will of the nobility) played a crucial role in his success at renovating government.
The power of the Emperors, however, had come to depend largely on the size and wealth of the Emperors’ hereditary domains. Thus, the Luxemburg Emperors (Henry VII, Emperor Charles IV, Wenceslaus, and Sigismund) and the Hapsburg Emperors concerned themselves with their own lands to the detriment of the unity of the Empire. During the reign of the Emperor Maximilian I (1493–1519) the conflict between the dynastic policy of the Hapsburg Emperors and the interests of the German empire (then known as the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation) became pronounced.
James became the first Stuart king of England in 1603 under the terms of the Treaty of Berwick which he had signed with Elizabeth I in 1586. The Treaty pledged allegiance between the two countries and promised mutual help against invasion, thus protecting England from France. And so James acquiesced to his mother's execution and remained neutral when the Spanish Armada threatened English shores. As Scottish king he consented to an act of parliament establishing Presbyterianism in Scotland and with support he subdued the Roman Catholic earls.
The move to England came with the death of Elizabeth. On arrival he realized that he was considered an alien and his strong opinions about the divine right of kings earned him a reputation for narrow-mindedness and intellectual bullying. His tract Basilicon Doron (meaning 'the kingly gift') was intended as an instruction manual to his eldest son, Prince Henry, should the father die - after all, frequent attempts were made on James' life - but the text was leaked and used as an example of James' dogma.
Yet despite his critics, James is considered a highly successful king. He made it clear that he intended to radically change the Elizabethan church, heralding his cause with the slogan, 'No bishop, no king!' Although this prompted Catholic reaction, such as the failed Gunpowder plot, James was able to make a lasting impression on church history, commissioning a version of the Bible that was to become the standard text for more than 250 years - the King James Bible. His run-ins with Parliament, which led for example to the Addled Parliament in 1614, did not lead to serious rebellion. And in foreign policy he was an arbitrator: he made peace with Spain and aspired to achieve even greater stability throughout Europe, but his efforts were thwarted by Protestant opinion in Britain and Spanish resistance. Further abroad, he reigned over the beginning of Empire and authorized the Evangelistic Grant Charter to settle the Colony of Virginia.
The Witchcraft Act established by King James: If any person or persons shall use, practice or exerise any invocation or conjuration of any evil or wicked spirit or shall consult, convenant with, entertain, employ, feed or reward any evil or wicked spirit to or any intent or purpose; or take any dead man or child out of his or her graves, or the skin, bone or any part of any dead person, to be employed or used in any manner of witchcrafts....they shall suffer the pains of death.

By the early seventeenth century, Masonry begins to enter the public scene, and we encounter records of lodge meeting in several Scottish towns. "The Rosicrucian enlightenment," or, alternatively, these esoteric dimensions simply became better-known. By 1638 a Scottish poet named Henry Adamson could write: For what we do presage is not in grosse, For we be brethren of the Rosie Crosse; We have the Mason word, and second sight; Things for to come we can foretell aright; the connection of the Masons with the Rosicrucian’s (the mysterious order of the ancients.

The pillars of the rosicrucian order - The present Rosicrucian Order is the spiritual beneficiary of the old Mystery Schools that flourished in Egypt, Babylon, Greece, and Rome long ago.
The exposition of the mysteries, and the religious dogmas and customs of the ancients are now confirmed. Written in 1835, by John Fellows, 1759-1844 and states as entered according to the act of Congress HS491.F3: The Original object of the secret rites of freemasonry has been a subject of inquiry for upwards of six hundred years, and the enigma seems not to have been satisfactorily solved. Let it now be known the truth of the matter; The initiated, as well as those without the pale of the order are equally ignorant of their derivation and import. “What mote it be” as said by King Henry VI, of England. His answer: Demen die es Verstehen, or to those who can understand…”In compliancy with this declaration and the Institution of the mysteries it is conceived in the following terms..”Let our citizens then be, first of all firmly persuaded of the government and dominion of the gods, that they are the Lords of the land and masters of the world in whom we are in allegiance with, and that all things are disposed by their powers, directions, and providences, and that the whole of race of mankind is in the highest manner indeted to them; that they are intimately acquainted with every one’s state and condition; that they know what he does, what he thinks, with what disposition of mind, and with what degree of piety he performs the acts of office of religion; and that accordingly, they make a distinction between the good and evil. And then follow the laws themselves, the first of which is conceived in these words: “Let those men who approach the gods, be in power, and that god himself will be is avenger on transgressors. Let the gods, and those who were reckoned in the number of celestials, be worshipped, and those likewise, whom merits have rasied to heaven: Such as Hercules, Bacchus/Dionysus/Osiris, Aesculapius, Castor, Pollux, and Romulas. And let Chapels and building be erected in honor of those qualities, by who aid motrals arrive thither. This conforms the next step, the legislator took, was to support and affirm the general doctrine of a providence, which he had delivered in the laws, by every circumstantial and popular method of inculcating the future state of rewards and punishments. This is the instituation of the mysteries, the most scared part of pagan religion. We therefore artfully framed to strike deeply and forcibly into the minds and imagination of the people….Thus in is the craft perfected!!!!
In the Thirty Years War (1618–48) the Emperor, Allied with Spain, opposed the Protestant Princes, who were allied chiefly with Sweden and France. The struggle ended with the virtual dissolution of the Empire in the Peace of Westphalia (1648), which recognized the Sovereignty of all the States of the Empire; the only limitation was that the Princes could not make alliances directed against the Empire or the Emperor. 1625-1649 Charles I ruled without parliment. Court of Star chamber & Ecclesiastical commission, and Charles I was murdered by Oliver cromwell, and Oliver Cromwell calls himself dimgod.
The old traditional story of how the "Brethren in White" of "The Ancient and Mystical Order Rosae Crucis" (The Rosicrucians) with their Grand Master Kelpius made a special pilgrimage from Europe to America in 1693, to set up a mystic community and secret headquarters in the city of Philadelphia (to which they gave that name), and to symbolically conduct a pyramid ceremony, laying the foundation stones of the Great Pyramid of Rosicrucian morals and ideals in North America,
The Rosicrucians (THE Illuminati) or (Amorica) OR AMORC, THE ANCIENT AND MYSTICAL ORDER set up in Philadelphia.

The Imperial Title became largely honorific, the outward forms of the empire were retained; the emperors, with their hereditary lands, remained powerful monarchs. While the peace generally legalized the situation that had existed in the Empire since the Reformation, it also advanced the growth of particularism and absolutism in the German States. The Emperors suffered further loss of prestige in their wars against Louis XIV . In spite pf the firm anti French attitude taken up by the Cabal in 1668, Charles II and Louis XIV, (The Sun King) signed a sector treaty. The death (1740) of Charles VI ended the male Hapsburg line, precipitating further conflict While the elector of Bavaria was chosen (1742) Emperor as Charles VII, Maria Theresa, daughter of Charles VI, defended her Hapsburg inheritance against the claims of Bavaria, Prussia, and Saxony. By the peace of Hubertus burg (1763), Francis I, husband of Maria Theresa, was recognized as Emperor; however, Prussia, under King Frederick II, had emerged as the leading German power.

One of the most important Freemasons secrets is the story of Atlantis and its effect on this secret society. Sir Francis Bacon, author of the “New Atlantis” (1627), was one of the biggest advocators of the Freemason destiny to establish a new Atleantean empire in America (the “new” Atlantis). The Freemasons believe that although Atlantis was destroyed (sunk into the sea by the wrath of Zeus), a Great Plan was left behind. This Great Plan includes the Freemasons secrets for the building of a One World Government. See Link: Francis Bacon
1763 The American Revolution. Freemasonry took on its modern role in Great Britain at the beginning of the eighteenth century. The first Grand Lodge was formed in London in 1717. By mid-century, English Masonry was strong enough to provide inspiration and example to a worldwide movement. Although Masonry first appeared in the North American colonies in the 1730s, it grew slowly until mid-century, when membership suddenly picked up. By the eve of the Revolution there were dozens of lodges up and down the continent. Many of the revolutionary leaders, including Washington, Franklin, Samuel Adams, Otis, Richard Henry Lee, Madison, and Hamilton, were members of the fraternity. The Revolution disrupted the organization but revitalized the movement; in the following decades Masonry exploded in numbers, fed by hosts of new recruits from deeper levels of the society. There were twenty-one lodges in Massachusetts by 1779; in the next twenty years fifty new ones were created, reaching out to embrace even small isolated communities on the frontiers of the state. Everywhere the same expansion took place. Masonry transformed the social landscape of the early Republic.
In 1717, a United Grand Lodge was formed in London, using Dr. John Anderson's Constitution 1723 to standardize the rituals and practices of Freemasonry. It was from this constitution that the Masonic tales of Hiram Abiff, King Solomon's Master Builder, along with the pyramid style organizational model would date. Some Masons, however, calling themselves "Ancients" refused to acknowledge the regency of the Grand Lodge. The division between Ancient and Modern Freemasonry existed in colonial Boston, with many of the Modern adherents being Loyalists. Where Freemasonry's influence is certain to be seen is in the moral education and belief in brotherhood and liberty.
"On 8 December 1730, Benjamin Franklin printed in his newspaper, The Pennsylvania Gazette, the first documented notice about Freemasonry in North America. Franklin's article, which consisted of a general account of Freemasonry, was prefaced by the statement that 'there are several Lodges of FREE MASONS erected in this Province'... Franklin himself became a Freemason in February 1731, and Provincial Grand Master of Pennsylvania in 1734. That same year, he ushered into print the first Freemasonic book to be published in America, and edition of Anderson's Constitutions...the Bible for English Freemasonry. It enunciates what were to become some of the now familiar and basic tenets of the Grand Lodge... (In) The first article... Anderson writes, 'tis now thought more expedient only to oblige (Masons) to that Religion to which all men agree. See: Holy Bible Vs. Mason Bible
"'One of the most influential figures in the American Revolution was the writer, philosopher and scientist Benjamin Franklin. He was a Quaker but had become a Freemason when he joined the Lodge of St. John in Philadelphia, which was the first recognized Masonic lodge in America. At the time he was inducted Franklin was working as a journalist and he wrote several pro-Masonic articles which were published in The Pennsylvania Gazette. In 1732 he helped draft the by laws of his lodge and in 1734 he printed the Constitutions which was the first Masonic book ever issued in America. He eventually rose to Grand Master of the St. John's lodge and in 1749 was elected Grand Master of the Province. While in France in the 1770s, as a diplomat for the American colonies, Franklin was made Grand Master of the Nine Sisters Lodge in Paris. Members of the Lodge included Danton, who was to play a crucial role in the French Revolution, the Marquis de Lafayette and Paul Jones, both of whom fought in the American War of Independence. While in Paris Franklin used his Masonic contacts to raise funds to buy arms for the American rebels.'"
King George III (known as the king who lost America), was born in 1738. King George III's father, the Prince of Wales died when he was young. When George III was 22, in 1760, his grandfather, George II, died. On September 8th, 1761 he married Princess Charlotte Sophia from Mecklenburg-Strelitz, in Germany and on September 22nd, 1761, George III became the King of England.
Historians will usually note that the French and Indian War was actually a small portion of what is known as the Seven Years War. This is not entirely correct. While the Seven Years War, and the French and Indian War were related, in fact the French and Indian War being the beginning of the Seven Years War, the conflict in America was more closely tied to the unsettled feelings left over from King George's War (1744-1748). After the treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle finished that earlier war, the hatred between the French and the English in the Americas never quite waned. It must be understood, that in 1755 France held most of America. King George III sat upon the throne of England from 1760-1820. It was on his watch that the American colonies were lost. King George III, after the French and Indian War, had large debts to pay, and thought he could extract the necessary money from the colonies. King George was incensed when the insolent American colonists objected to the taxes being levied, particularly the Stamp Act. When the Stamp Act was repealed, King George flew into a rage. King George thought the colonists should be dealt with harshly for their disobedience and insolence. Using his profound influence, he pushed through the Townshend Acts, in 1766, taxing many commodity items including tea resulting in the infamous Boston Tea Party. King George was eventually humbled as the American colonies successfully became the United States Of America. Other colonies began to rebel after America's success and King George remained embroiled in one conflict or another for many years.
On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence declaring the colonies free and independent states.
"Franklin, was also a Rosicrucian Grand Master, who was at the heart of the Illuminati operations to take over America and replace the visible control of the British Empire with the invisible control of the secret brotherhood, the most effective and ongoing form of mastering the underclass. It is said the Illuminati, via the Freemasons, controlled and manipulated both sides in the American War of Independence and were also deeply connected with the French Revolution (1789). "Franklin was Agent 72 of the British intelligence agency created by Dr. John Dee and Francis Bacon during the rein of Elizabeth I. During their time in London, Franklin and the Professor were brought into contact with those in positions of power who shared their Masonic and occult interests. One of these was Sir Francis Dashwood, the English Chancellor of the Exchequer who was also the founder of a secret society called the Friars of St. Francis of Wycombe, more popularly known in the parlors of London as the Hell Fire Club. "Franklin and LeMarchand spent a summer at Dashwood's estate in West Wycombe, north of London, where they took part in rituals in the specially-created caves dug on Dashwood's orders. "Dashwood and Franklin, both postmasters, together were able to control and disseminate intelligence better than the military. Postmaster at this point in history meant spymaster as the postmasters controlled the movement of information." "On September 1, 1752, a new lodge of Masons held its first meeting in Fredericksburg and soon attracted members. Under Daniel Campbell as Master, a class of five was initiated on November 4. George Washington, one of this group, paid his initiation fee of £23s, as an Entered Apprentice. "The journey had shown that the President was as popular in the Southern States as he was in Federalist New England. On the tour he received at least twenty-three addresses. Particularly noticeable were the addresses from Lodges of Free Masons. This probably had no other significance other than it disclosed the strength of the Masons in the South and their pride in Washington as a brother. His answers, in turn, were in good Masonic terms, with no casualness in his references to his membership in the Order.
In 1791, Washington chose Washington , D.C. in 1791 and commissioned Pierre Charles L'Enfant, a French engineer, to create a plan for the physical layout of the city, with the Capitol as the center of the city. "He took the road for the relatively brief ride to the Federal City. It was September 18, 1794, the date for laying the cornerstone of the Capitol. The President found the splendor of music and drums, of flying colors, of many Masons in their symbolic regalia, of happy spectators generally. It was a memorable affair for the Masonic Order, magnified by Washington's participation as a member." "On 4 February 1789, Washington was elected first president of the United States and John Adams his vice-president. The inauguration was on 30 April. The oath was administered by Robert Livingston, Grand Master of New York's Grand Lodge...The marshal of the day was another Freemason, General Jacob Morton. Yet another Freemason, General Morgan Lewis, was Washington's escort... Washington himself at the time was Master of Alexandria Lodge No. 22, Virginia... On 14 December, Alexander Hamilton submitted proposals for establishing a National Bank. Jefferson opposed them but Washington signed them through. On the American dollar bill was printed the 'Great Seal' of the United States. It is unmistakably Freemasonic - an all seeing eye in a triangle above a thirteen-stepped, four-sided pyramid, beneath which a scroll proclaims the advent of a 'new secular order,' one of Freemasonry's long-standing dreams. See link: Lodge History
"On 18 September 1793, the cornerstone of the Capitol was officially laid. Grand Lodge of Maryland presided over the ceremony and Washington was asked to serve as Master... Subsequently, the Capitol and the White House were each to become focal points of an elaborate geometry governing the layout of the nation's capital city. This geometry, originally devised by an architect named Pierre L’Enfant, was subsequently modified by Washington and Jefferson so as to produce specifically octagonal patterns incorporation the particular cross used as a device by Masonic Templar’s.
Joseph II, successor of Francis I, adhered to the principles of the Enlightenment; he attempted to rationalize the administration of the Imperial Government but failed in the face of resistance by the particularistic princes, especially Frederick II of Prussia. number of states was greatly reduced, and the remaining State during the French Revolutionary Wars the Empire was completely reorganized by the treaty of Lunéville (1801) and by action of the diet in 1803. The s were aggrandized at the expense of the petty Princedoms and Ecclesiastical Estates.
The Empire, has formally remained in a dormant State of illegal suspension since the sixth of August, 1806 until the First of September 1999, when Karl von Deutschland, formally issued a Statutory Promulgated Proclamation in the form of Legal Deed of Patent Claim by the Instrument of Universal Public Proclamation open with certain Dimensions, an Act for which He formally Perpetuated the full resumption of the Old Empire, its Imperial Patrimony, Sovereign Rights, Prerogatives, Pretensions and Institutions etc., and thus formally Claimed, Pertained and Perpetuated the Formal Act of Instauration of the Imperial Sovereign Title, Electoral Office, Imperial Throne and Crown, for Himself, His Heirs and Descendants of His Body in Universal Perpetuity.
In 1804, Holy Roman Emperor Francis II took the Imperial Title Francis I, Emperor of Austria, and after the establishment (1806) of the Confederation of the Rhine under Napoleon I, Francis renounced His Imperial Title as Holy Roman Emperor. After the fall of Napoleon no attempt was made to restore the Empire, the Illegal suspension of the Empire by the Emperor Francis II, on the sixth of August, 1806, following the Emperors Abdication and formal Renunciation of the Imperial Title and Crown, for Himself, His Heirs and Descendants, laid the Holy Roman Empire of The German Nation and The Imperial Title , Crown and Throne dormant. For the two years between 1804 and 1806 Francis used the title and style by the grace of God elected Roman Emperor, always August, hereditary Emperor of Austria and he was called the Emperor of both Germany and Austria.

The Imperial Order and Association of the Nobility of The Holy Roman Empire of The German Nation, which has been preserved, they claim for many centuries for the formal defense of Christianity, which originates from the First Noble Knights: meaning the knights Templar’s of the Holy Roman Empire of The German Nation, who claim they fought for the victory of the Christian Faith . It is now formally composed of the old and new families of the Holy Roman Empire and is, therefore a closed Imperial Order. The Holy Roman Empire hands down its own traditions through the surviving families, and it has never suffered a conquest by any foreign power. "In hoc signe vinces" meaning: in the sign of the cross you conquer! But the Word of God states that we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. Roman 8:37...
The Templar's Crusades would be the start of a campaign which would bring wealth and power and prosperity. It is said according to Freemasonry that the Knights Templar’s found the treasure’s of Solomon and the priceless scrolls of Alexandria, Egypt; which brought to light the building of King Solomon Temple and the house that Solomon was building for 13 years, with the ancient writings of the Ancient Egyptian Priest secrets. This would be among their new found wealth, the writings of lost city of Ancient Atlantis, City of ON, and it's LAW. The Templar found not only the wealth of Kingdoms that Solomon had aquried, but also the written mysteries of Greece and Egypt, and the architectural plans of Solomon King of Israel and his agreement made with King Hiram of Tyre. Some say they found the cup of Christ, and the Ark of the covenant, which contained the tablets of the law, Aaron rod that budded, and the golden pot of manna. The Knights Templar's would become the first world bank.
Atlantis remains a controversial topic and is at forefront of freemasonry. Even extra-sensory perception has been offered as evidence. The Story of Atlantis and the Lost Continent has it's place among Fraternity, and hold this doctrine believing that Greece and Egypt knew the secrets to wealth, power, dominion and intelligence. Egypt and Greece = Egyptus or Aegyptus... Let Look at what incorporates both; the Temple of Hephaestus is a classic example of the Doric order in architecture. - A statue of George Washington in is Athenian Garb - The 33 degree temple in Washington, with the Egyptian sphinx at the entry. Also the Lincoln Memorial is designed after this type.
What is the origin of the word masonary? Answer: The midevil Latin "Maconner", to build or "Maconetins" A BUILDER. See: Holy Bible Vs. Mason Bible
The United States of America would have it's design, being handed down the mysteries through 12 general accepted orgins; Patriarchal Religion, Ancient Mysteries, Temple of Solomon, to the Crusaders, to the Knights Templar, to the Roman Colleges of Artificers, To the Operative Masons of the middle ages, to the Rosicrucians, to Oliver Cromwell for political reasons, to the Pretender for the restoration of the house of Stuart, to the British throne, to Sir Christopher Wren, to Dr. Desaguliers, and others in 1717.
Rahab/Egypt Washington D.C.
The plan of Washington D.C., drawn up in 1791 by Charles L Enfant and Andrew Ellicott, on the instructions of George Washington, set the theme for the building on the new city. The marker was layed with Masonic honors. By contrast, the astrological conditions pertaining to the ritual of the cornerstone were rarely made public. This was nothing to do with Masonic secrecy, it was merely continuation of an ancient tradition. On the who, only specialists such as astrologers were interested in the validity of foundation charts. They might be consulted and hired to draw up a chart for a propitious moment, but their deliberations were usually too arcane to attract public notice. although a survey of the foundation charts used in the early phase of the building of Washington D.C. reveals the important role in early Masonic rites, the rationale of astrology was rarely discussed openly, even in Masonic documents. Knowledge of the stars--in so far as they were understood in Masonic circles, and were reserved as secrets best left to those with specialist knowledge of such things. Washington had a hand in the design. The residence Act or 1790 gave him the power to establish the Capitol and one of the first things he did was to appoint three commissioners to oversee it's creation. He directed Pierre Charles L' Enfant, a Frenchmen who had served in the revolutionary War, to lay out the plan for the city.

Whilst ordinary masons of the lowest 3 degrees of craft freemasonry are forbidden to discuss politics in their lodges, at its highest levels freemasonry has strong political overtones. Note the Masonic symbol of the pyramid mounted by the all seeing eye, the symbol of the structure of world freemasonry, to be found on the rear of the U.S. one dollar bill. Around it the Latin inscription - “Annuit Coeptis Novus Ordo Seclorum” - announcing the birth of the new ordinance of the ages or, to use contemporary terminology “new world order”, a phrase much associated with domination by a global elite and rather popular with George Bush Sr. Bush is one of a number of U.S. presidents thought to have reached the highest levels of Masonic initiation, others include Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson, Gerald Ford and Bill Clinton. This Masonic structure is well illustrated in Britain today where we have an elected parliament which conducts its affairs in public. At the head of it is the government including the Cabinet, whose deliberations are not generally made public. Above that but less visible, are publicized summits such as the G8 the IMF etc. whose deliberations are strictly secret. Calling the shots are banks, big business and corporate think tanks. Then there are the publicity shy private forums such as Bilderberg, the Tri-Lateral Commission and the European Round Table of Industrialists and finally the top levels of the secret society network which are almost completely hidden. As if to emphasize this, we have a monarchy in which the rituals and pageantry of the Coronation and the state opening of parliament are essentially Masonic in nature. Hiding, as it were, in full view, the true nature of the powers that try to rule over us. See link: The world of Famous Freemasonry

7th Head of the Beast
And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
