Ancient Secrets and The New World Order
Most of the ancient knowledge became lost when Emperor Constantine officially approved Christianity as the state's religion. Christian bishops elated with their new found power,
wasted little time in establishing their control. The council of Nicean established the only "true faith". The majority of churches, led by church of Rome, rejected all other viewpoints as heresy.
Possession of books denounced as heretical was made a criminal offense. Copies of such books were burned and destroyed. Any knowledge contrary to the Catholic view was destroyed. The Great Library of Alexandria's vast knowledge was destroyed two seperate occasions. One an act of war, the other by the early Church
promoting their beliefs and destroying all others. These practices, I believe plunged Europe into the dark ages. Church Heresy written by
the early church provides a little insight into the ancient knowledge destroyed in order to conform the masses to their beliefs.
GNOSTICS - (Info Please Gnostics)
In Upper Egypt, near the town of Nag Hammadi someone hid copies of religious writtings banned by Catholics. They remained hidden for almost 1,600 years, till they were discovered in 1945. These lost works of early Apostlic writting, used by many of the early churches, were a favorite of the Gnostics. Gnosis is the Greek word for knowledge through experience. Their origin is unknown. The early church in denouncing their view described them as decendants of those who practiced the ancient mysteries. Accepting Jesus as the master Teacher, their school of thought began to spread. Unlike the Catholics, the Gnostics didn't dictate their religion on the masses, but would only admit those truly seeking spirital enlightenment. They used many of the early Christian writting declared heresy by the Catholics. Their philosophy seemed similar to Eastern mysticism. They believed the search for God should begin with knowing oneself. Self knowledge is knowledge of God. They believed Jesus to be a guide who opens access to spiritual understanding. As with Jesus' teaching, they deemphasised the ancient Hebrew Bible and its stories of the war God Yahwah, and worshipped a God of unbridled love. With heavy perscution from the Catholic Church, their sect seemed to vanish by the end of the 5th century.
Oddly enough, the appearance of the monastaries arose at this time, mirroring the communal lifestyle, and the inner search of oneself and God, practiced by the Gnostics.
Gospel of Thomas contains the sayings of Jesus, many found in the New Testament. Many of the sayings such as the following differed from the views of the Catholic Church. Jesus said, "If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you." The Gospel of Thomas, was only one of the fifty-two texts discovered at Nag Hammadi.
Gospel of Philip describes Jesus acts different from those in the New Testament.
Secret book of John, offered to reveal the mysteries which Jesus taught to his disciple John.
On the Origin of the World tells a different version about the story of the Garden of Eden.
The Thunder, Perfect Mind, is a poem from a feminine divine power. Gospel to the Egyptians reveals the sacred book of the Great Invisible Spirit. For a complete list of these books visit the Nag Hammadi Library.
The Essenes - (Info Please Essenes) , another mystic Jewish cult established before the birth of Christ is credited with writting the Dead Sea Scrolls discovered in 1940's. The Nag Hammadi Scrolls and the Dead Sea Scrolls are two seperate writtings and should be viewed as such.
FREEMASONRY, synounamous with Secret Societies, has it's origin clouded in mystery, as to it's nature. Their are those who claim this fraternity began during the building of the Temple of Solomon. Below are just a few secret organizations rumored to have ties with Freemasonry. Knights Templar helped establish the formations of the Grand Lodges, which in turn may have had roots from Gnostic Influences. The Rosicrucian, Illuminati, and Golden Dawn are rumored to be or have been the "inner circles" of Freemasonry.
Knights Templar The Order was founded by two knights, Hugh de Payen and André de Montbard along with seven companions. With the help of St Bernard of Clairvaux founder of the Cistercian monks, they pettioned King Baudoin I of Jerusalem to form an order of warrior monks for the protection of pilgrims visiting the Holy Land. The king granted the new order of knights the right to wear the Cross of Lorraine as their insignia. St Bernard nominated Hugh de Payen as the first grand master.
In their infancy, they did not patrol the roads of the Holy Land to protect the pilgrims, but spent ten years excavating tunnels under their quarters on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. What were the Templars seeking, and how did they know where to dig? The Copper Scroll, one of the Dead Sea Scrolls discovered at Quamran in 1952, may contain the answer. It is a list of burial sites used to hide the treasure of the Temple of Jerusalem, It also tells of a second scroll (unfound) containing the location of the Temple's hidden secrets. Many of these sites have been re-excavated since the Copper Scroll's discovery and turned up evidence of Templar excavation made in the 12th century, but no treasure.
After completing the excavations, Bernard of Clairvaux persuade the pope that the new military order should be given papal backing. The Templars were granted their rule in 1128. The new order was given legal immunity from bishops, Kings or emperors, answering only to the pope.After completing excavations in Jerusalem, the Grand Master Hugh de Payen and Andre de Montbard, went to Scotland and stayed at Roslin with the St Clairs at Rosslyn Chapel The lord of Roslin made a grant of land to the new order which became their headquarters in Scotland. This was followed by many similar grants and a rapid increase of members. They built castles and established important bases throughout the Holy Land. Templars soon earned reputation for bravery in battle and never willingly surrendered to the enemy.
The Knights Templar owned estates all over Europe. The Templars became a naval power with bases in the Mediterranean and the Atlantic coast, from where, it is rumored, they conducted trade with the Americas'. Within a hundred years they had developed into a national power and were far richer than any kingdom in Europe.
The Templars became the international bankers of Europe. They financed the building of cathedrals, palaces, and government building. With the King of France heavily in debt to the Templars, their demise began. Using the Inquisition, on Friday the thirteenth of October 1307, Jaques de Molay Grand Master of the Templars, and thousands of other Templars were arrested in France. The Templar's were tortured for several years, perhaps to find the Templar's treasure which vanished without a trace, along with most of the Templar fleet. On the 14th March 1314. Grand Master, Jaques de Molay was publicly burnt at the stake.
One charge against the Templars was idolatry, the worship of an idol called Baphomet. Legend tells that Baphomet was the severed head of St. John the Baptist who was revered by the Knights Templar. The Atbash cipher, an Essenic code, was applied to the name Baphomet. The cipher produced the word Sophia. Could the Templar cult of the Black Madonna have worshiped Sophia the Mother of Wisdom, associated with the goddess Isis and her child Horus? St Bernard of Clairvaux was the key individual in the adoption of the Virgin Mary's glorification by the Church. Was he really trying to revive the "Order of Isis" cult, under the guise of the Virgin Mary. The Christian Madonna and Child sculptures soon adorned many Cisterian Monastaries through out Europe.
German knights of the Templars either joined the Hospitallers or the Teutonic Knights. In Portugal the Templars simply changed their name to the Knights of Christ. In Spain ex-Templars were encouraged to join similar military Orders which owed their allegiance to the Spain, and not the pope. In France and England some joined the Knights Hospitallers, but most disappeared, possibly forming their own country Switzerland!
Templars and Freemasonry
Meritorious Order of the Rosy Cross
About the year 1610 a document entitled the "Fama Franternitatis of the Meritorious Order of the Rosy Cross" mysteriously appeared in Germany, and quickly found its way through out Europe. This important document revealed a secret Order that taught the Hermetic and Christian Mysteries, concerning the Holy Qabalah, power of healing, and other mystical rituals. The founder, purportedly was Christian Rosenkreutz. A second document, "Confessio Fraternitatis" (1615), described the Rosicrucian Order in more detail. A third document, "The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz," is an alchemical tale. Rosicrucian seemed to find a home in Freemasonry in the 1700s according to Info Please Rosicrucian
The leader was a man named Adam Weishaupt. Taught by Jesuit Monks, he became the professor of canon law at the University of Ingolstadt. His interests included astrology, medicine, and Egyptian occultism. He studied the Eleusinian mysteries the secret cult of the Pythagoreans and the teachings of the Essenes. He intended to create an organization like the Masons but much more secretive. Admitting only men of wealth, power, or those possessing superior abilities.
On May 1, 1776, Weishaupt founded the Ancient Illuminated Seers of Bavaria, Order of the Illuminati. The name perhaps derived from Lucifer, the 'Bearer of Light. Its goal was to obtain power and wealth, to undermine religion and government, and to abolish personal possesions. Weishaupt came up with the idea of merging the Illuminati and the Masons. A combined Order of the Illuminati organization and Freemasonry was said to have taken place in the year 1782.
Duke Karl Theodore Dalberg, the Elector Palatinate of Bavaria, after receiving information from former Illuminati members that the intent of the Illuminati was to rule the world by overthrowing all civil government, issued a proclamation that all Lodges be shut down. Weishaupt fled to Gotha were it is believed he burrowed his organization further from the public scrutiny. Their involvement in France may have lead to the French Revolution of 1789.
Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn - Info Please Hermetic Golden Dawn
Dr. Wynn Westcott and Dr. William Woodman (both high-ranking Masons) introduced Mathers to the "Societas Rosicruciana in Angelia." The SRIA was and is a Rosicrucian Society in London, open only to Master Masons, (not to be confuse with the current S.R.I.A. in America). Upon admission into the S.R.I.A. Mathers took the motto, "S Rioghail Mo Dhream (SRMD) (Royal is my Race). While this is the motto of his heritage, the Highlander MacGregor Clan, the Royal Race was associated with enlightened ones, those believed to have kept the Mysteries alive throughout all antiquity.In 1887, it was Westcott, Mathers and Woodman who would comprise the newly formed Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. These three were also the governing trust of the S.R.I.A. with Westcott as Supreme Magus. Women were allowed into the Order on an equal basis with men.
Although rumors have circulated for centuries about their involvement in the American and French revolutions, along with their impressive VIP Members list, they claim no political agenda. Contrary to popular belief they are not a christian organization and claim no ties with any religious group. They do require a belief in one God to become a member. Rumors have surfaced, particulary from ex-members. regarding possible ties to Satanism, Lucifer, and Druid practises. Ephesians 5 tells of these rumors, but to be fair FAQ refutes these claims. Although I couldn't help but notice the defence put up for Lucifer. The name of their secret social club The Ancient Egyptian Order of SCIOTS does nothing to help dispell this image.
The announced agenda of Freemasory seems to pose no threat to society, but does the inner circle of Illuminati still exsist? Consider the dollar bill created in 1935. Illuminati symbols, the Great Pyramid with the capstone replaced by The All-Seeing Eye can be found on the back of the dollar bill. There the Latin phrase Annuit Coeptis translates as favor our undertaking, and Novus Ordo Seclorum (Illuminati motto) translated as New Secular Order. The date 1776, found at the base of the pyramid in Roman numerals, may not refer to July 4th, independence day, but May 1st, when the Illuminati was founded. Alledged famous names linked to the Illuminati include the Roosevelts, Rothchilds, Fords, Rockefeller, and Carnegie. Names that are also linked to the next group which does, in my opinion, have the clout to manipulate our society.
BILDENBURG Group is no doubt planning and implementing a world wide agenda to control the direction of the earth's future.

Secret Sociaties have the allure of ancient mysteries and cosmic knowledge, but the keepers of lost secrets have locked away this knowledge to protect the masses from themselves. The name given to this collection speaks for itself. The Vatican Secret Archives.
