ANTICHRIST IN VIRGO
"A number of times the Scripture refers to Jesus as 'The Branch.' Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH' (Zechariah 6:12). That is one of the names in the Old Testament for the coming of the Messiah. Also, concerning the Branch, we read in Zechariah 3:8, For, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH.' Also 'In that day shall the branch of the Lord be beautiful and glorious.' (Isaiah 4:2a). He is the servant, He is a man, He is God; He is the God-man, Jesus, who has come... A confirmatory of this is that the brightest star in Virgo is called Spica, which has the ancient meaning of 'The Branch'—a picture of the coming of Christ." (D. James Kennedy) - 872:20-21
THE MEROVINGIAN DYNASTY
Although the constellations in the heavens do not form configurations that are definitively human, animal or vegetable, promoters of the false 'Gospel in the Stars' are of the same opinion as astrologers that Virgo holds a Branch, and that this Branch represents 'the Christ' who will come to redeem the world. E. W. Bullinger actually stated: "The day has here come to fulfill the prophecies concerning Him who is 'the Branch,' 'the Branch of Jehovah,' 'the man whose name is the Branch.'" (939) Knowing that Virgo is the Great Mother Goddess of pagan religions, the Scriptures Kennedy and Bullinger have cited will undoubtedly be used to validate a false Christ who will be promoted as 'The Branch' and whose name will actually mean "branch".
And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD: - Zech. 6:12
Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous BRANCH, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. - Jer. 23:5,6
In that day shall the BRANCH of the LORD be beautiful and glorious... - Is. 4:2
Isaiah 14 also mentions a branch. In the King James Version, this chapter describes the fall of Lucifer who will one day incarnate the Antichrist in his attempt to destroy the world:
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners? All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house. But thou art cast out of thy grave like an ABOMINABLE BRANCH, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet. - Is. 14:12-19
The Rev'd. Bullinger, Kennedy and fellow 'Biblical' astrologers inform us that "Spica, which has the ancient meaning of 'The Branch'," is "a picture of the coming of Christ." Now in the ancient zodiacs, Spica, the 'branch,' was portrayed as a serpent. Note that in the sculpture of Hathor (right), the goddess is holding the ears of grain and a serpent! This 'serpent' (Spica) is the 'branch' or 'coming son' of the Egyptians. Hathor stands upon a lion (Leo) and, as the woman who rides the beast (Rev.17), is representative of the Mother Goddess--Virgo, Eve, and Isis: "Eve or Hawwah is explained by Robert Graves as possibly being the Hebrew version of Heba, Hebat, Khebat, or Khilba. She is depicted as riding a lion in a sculpture. She was worshipped in Jerusalem. Her Greek name was Heba, Heracles' goddess-wife. "Eve is similar to Demeter or Ceres as the grain goddess, or the goddess of the garden. This is Spica, an ear of corn. On Denerah Virgo is Isis. Spica in Hebrew astrology is named Tsemech or 'branch'. This name is symbolic of a coming son or branch. Al Mureddin another star in Virgo is 'the branch that cometh' and is associated with a grape gatherer (Noah) who would redeem man from the curse of the earth by giving us wine." (1067)
Hathor as Qadesh the Syrian fertility goddess with phallic Min. Note the Hathor crown and headdress. She stands on a lion, holding a serpent and ears of grain (Graves 1946, Pritchard 1954) - 1060
From the 5th to the 8th centuries, the Merovingian dynasty of kings ruled Europe and, from the Middle Ages until the present day, most of Europe's monarchs have been of Merovingian lineage. In 679 A.D., the Roman Catholic Church collaborated with the Carolingian dynasty to assassinate the Merovingian King, Dagobert II. Dagobert's nephew, Childeric III, was deposed in 751 by Pepin III, the first of the Carolingian dynasty. The removal of the Merovingian kings culminated with the coronation of Charlemagne, who became the Holy Roman Emperor in 800. Ironically, Charlemagne and the Carolingians married Merovingian wives in order to guarantee the continuation of their dynasty. This would account for the perpetuity of the Merovingian bloodline in the royalty of Europe.
“In the [8th] century the Merovingian Dynasty of France was overthrown by the mayors of the Merovingian Palaces, the Carolingians (741). But Carolingians were also a major part of the Jesus–Magdalene heresy, as we shall soon see. They took Merovingian wives to assure that the heretical 'divine' bloodline was preserved twofold. The Carolingian empire became the unholy Holy Roman Empire under Charlemagne who became the first Emperor, a huge coup.” - 550
"In fact, to consolidate his claim to the throne of the Franks, Charlemagne had himself married a Merovingian princess." - 936
After the death of Dagobert II, the Merovingian bloodline continued in the personage of Sigisbert IV, who fled to the south of France, to the village of Rennes le Chateau in Razes. Sigisbert assumed the name of "the Plant-Ard", which means "sapling" or "branch" and the title of the Count of Razes. "Plant-Ard" evolved into the surname Plantard:
"...Dagobert II climbed on the throne but he was assassinated in 679 as well as his son Sigebert IV according to the official history...
"The Merovingian dynasty continued formally with Thierry IV and Childéric III who was removed in 751 and this was the end of the dynasty. According to the parchment found by Saunière, and this could be true according to some historians, Sigebert IV escaped and arrived in the Razes on the 17 of January 681 where he took refuge with his grand father. Dagobert II had as a second wife Gisèle, the daughter of Béra II the count of Razès. The Merovingian line included, after Sigebert IV (676-758) also known as the 'Plant-Ard' - from whom Mr Plantard took his name!-: Sigebert V (695-768), Bera III (715-771), Guillemon, Bera IV (755-836), Bera V (794-860), Hildéric I and finally Sigebert VI known as 'Ursus'. From this lineage came the Blanchefort family who gave three centuries later a Templar Grand Master, Bertrand de Blanchefort... According to the parchment found by Saunière the lineage did not stop with Sigebert VI but continued up to this date although nobody claimed the French throne."- 856
"According to the latest documents the Merovingian dynasty is now alive in the Plantard family (we must remember that Saint Dagobert II' son, Sigebert IV was also known as "Plant Ard or Rejeton Ardent")." The phrase means Burning Kid!
Another prophecy pertaining to the Messiah is Isaiah 53:2: For he shall grow up before him as a tender PLANT, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
To further authenticate their pseudo-divine lineage, the Merovingian genealogies have Sigisbert IV, the 'Plant-Ard' or Branch, married to "Magdala", who is blasphemously identified as a descendant of Mary Magdalene and Jesus Christ.
"...the marriage of Dagobert II and Giselle of Razes combined the two bloodlines, that of the Holy Family and that of a pagan divine beast, the Quinotaur. The connection between the Merovingians and the Holy Family seems to have been hind-shadowed by this union of the bloodlines, when indeed they would seem from contemporary sources to be a kind of Pendragon lineage, such as Vortigern and Arthur in Britain. In Sigisbert IV, it appears the bloodlines of the divine king and the world teacher combined.
"Given the events of his childhood, it is natural that Sigsbert, the new Count of Rhedae, kept a low profile. The only solid evidence of his existence is a charter for a monastery signed in 718 by 'Sigebert, Comte de Rhedae, and his wife Magdala'." - 873 (Book 1, Chap. 9)
Sigisbert and Magdala were most assuredly not descendants of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene; rather their Pendragon lineage refers to descent from Uther Pendragon, the father of King Arthur and Head Dragon of the Druidic Dragon Court:
"The Pendragon, or 'Head Dragon of the Island'...was the King-of-Kings and 'Guardian of the Celtic Isle'. The title was not dynastic; Pendragons were appointed from Celtic royal stock by a Druidic council of elders...
"The concept of the dragon in Celtic mythology emerged directly from the holy crocodile (the Messeh) of the ancient Egyptians. The Pharaohs were anointed with crocodile fat, and thereby attained the fortitude of the Messeh (Thus Messiah—Anointed One). The image of the intrepid Messeh evolved to become the Dragon, which in turn became emblematic of mighty kingship." - 29:183
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan... Rev. 12:9
Jesus said unto them...Ye are of your father the devil... John 8:42,44
The Merovingian dynasty was deposed in 800 A.D., but perpetuated itself in a direct line from Dagobert II through his son Sigisbert IV. From this bloodline came Godfroi de Bouillon, who captured Jerusalem in 1099 and formed the Knights Templars, as well as the Prieuré de Sion. Recall that the Society of Ormus which originated in Alexandria, Egypt had relocated to Calabria, Italy and that, in 1070 AD, twenty-nine years before the first Crusade, the Calabrian monks removed to Ardennes Forrest in France, part of the domains of Godfroi de Bouillon who was the Duke of Lorraine.
"The First Crusade (A.D. 1098) could then conceivably have been an attempt to restore an heir of the Davidic bloodline to the throne of Jerusalem in the person of Godfroi of Bouillon (also known as Godfroi of Lorraine), who was, according to legend, of Merovingian lineage... This secret cabal called the Priory of Sion, was reputed to have been formed by Godfroi of Lorraine to protect the interests of the bloodline." - 936:63
The Templar Revelation lists among the Merovingian Rex Deus families who strategized the First Crusade the "Counts of Champagne, Lords of Gisors, Lords of Payen, Counts of Fontaine, Counts of Anjou, de Bouillon, St. Clairs of Roslin, Brienne, Joinville, Chaumont, St Clair de Gisor, St Clair de Neg and the Hapsburgs..." Godfroi de Bouillon who became the King of Jerusalem and first Grand Master of the Knights Templar was a descendant of King Dagobert through Hugues de Plantard. From these families descended the Saint-Clair (Sinclair) and Plantard bloodlines, as well as the Hapsburg dynasty which is allied with Plantard through the House of Lorraine.
"...Although it was deposed in the eighth century, the Merovingian bloodline did not become extinct... By dint of dynastic alliances and intermarriages, this line came to include Godfroi de Bouillon, who captured Jerusalem in 1099, and various other noble and royal families, past and present—Blanchefort, Gisors, Saint-Clair—Sinclair in England...Plantard, and Habsburg-Lorraine...
"...in the tenth century a certain Hugues de Plantard...a literal descendant of both Dagobert and Guillem de Gellon—became the father of Eustache, the first count of Boulogne. Eustache's grandson was Godfroi de Bouillon, duke of Lorraine and conqueror of Jerusalem. And from Godfroi there issued a dynasty and a 'royal tradition' that, by virtue of being founded on 'the rock of Sion,' was equal to those presiding over France, England, and Germany. If the Merovingians were indeed descended from Jesus, then Godfroi—scion of the Merovingian blood royal—had, in his conquest of Jerusalem, regained his rightful heritage...
"There are at least a dozen families in Britain and Europe today—with numerous collateral branches—who are of Merovingian lineage. These include the houses of Hapsburg-Lorraine (present titular dukes of Lorraine and kings of Jerusalem), PLANTARD, Luxembourg, Montpezat, Montesquiou, and various others. According to the 'Prieuré documents,' the SINCLAIR family in Britain is also allied to the bloodline, as are various branches of the Stuarts..." - 31:107, 396, 409-10
The first Angevin dynasty was known from the 12th century as the Plantagenet dynasty through the House of Anjou which produced King Henry II and subsequent kings:
"In Breton, ard means art or craft and plantan can mean to implant, such that a possible sense to Plantard is an `implant(er) of skill or divine magic'...
"Geoffrey Plante Genest, count of Anjou and Maine was the father of king Henry II of England and, amongst others, Hamelyn (Plantagenet), Warren earl of Surrey (London). The first evidence for the Pl(a/e)nte name in England is found in 1219, just after the times of Henry II's son, the lecherous king John.
"In 1200, king John married Isabella of Angouleme in Aquitaine who subsequently married Hugh de Lusignan, the most prominent baron of Aquitaine. In 1247, John (Plantagenet) (de Warenne) married Alice Lusignan (de Brien) and English resentments of favouritism towards the `foreign' Lusignans led on to the Baron's revolt in England, leading to the capture of king Henry III at Lewes (1264), though the king was freed by John (Plantagenet) (de Warenne) at Evesham (1265)." - 950
"The Plantagenets were themselves a junior branch of the House of Anjou, whose senior branch was the House of Vere [whose] ancestry was jointly Pictish and Merovingian descending from the ancient Grail House of Scythia." - 248:8
"According to the 'Prieuré documents' the lords of Anjou-Plantagenet family were thus allied to the Merovingian bloodline. And the name of Plantagenet may even have been intended to echo 'Plant-ard' or Plantard.'" - 31:302
According to Fritz Springmeier's Top Thirteen Illuminati Bloodlines, "The original start of the Prieuré de Sion appears to have been the idea of a number of powerful bloodlines, and included various descendants of the Merovingians, including the House of Lorraine, the House of Guise, the Medicis, Sforzas, the Estes, the Gonzagas, and the St. Clairs (Sinclairs). The Medicis are tied to the Black Nobility.
"From the beginning the Prieuré de Sion has been committed to Hermetic Magic... René d' Anjou, a descendant of the Merovingians persuaded Cosimo de Medici to establish in c. 1444 a non-church library at San Marco where Plato, Pythagorean works, and books on Hermetic Magic were translated. Up until this time, the Catholic church had control of all the libraries. It was from Cosimo de Medici's library that the spark of Greek and Egyptian teachings set off what developed into the Renaissance, which was a revival of humanism and the occult. It appears that during the Middle Ages, witchcraft and the mystery religions had seriously dissolved to the point that these modes of thought had to be relearned from the ancient writings. Interestingly, the Middle Ages when witchcraft and paganism were dissolving have been branded the 'Dark Ages' by the establishment, and inaccurately painted as a time when learning went out." - 77:79
The Merovingian families which ruled France, England, and Germany included the Hapsburg-Lorraine dynasty which, in the twentieth century, played a major role in the formation of the European Union.
"Prominent in the Wars of Religion was the noble French family of de Guise... [T]hey disputed the legitimacy of the Valois succession, and claimed their own right to the throne by virtue of descent from the Emperor Charlemagne through the House of Lorraine." - 29:307
"The Imperial and Royal Dragon Court is the ancient Household Court and Order of the senior Angevin descendants of the Imperial and Royal House of Vere of Caledonia, Anjou and Lorraine, and the physical embodiment of the sovereign Princedom of Drakenberg, which is recognized under European Law as a sovereign ethnic racial group; the principal nation states of the Draconian peoples:... "Furthermore, the royal and ambassadorial nature of the title of the Prince of Drakenberg (Princeps Draconis) is recognised under the 'Official Observations' of the Department of Internal Affairs of the Government of its state of origin within the European Union." - 357
PIERRE PLANTARD DE SAINT-CLAIR
The Messianic Legacy states that Pierre Plantard de Saint-Claire joined the Prieuré de Sion on July 10, 1943 and, from 1963 to 1981, shared the position of Grand Master with Gaylord Freeman, also of an Illuminati bloodline. (232:319;235-6) According to Holy Blood, Holy Grail, Plantard de Saint-Claire was Grand Master of the Prieuré de Sion from 1981 to 1984.
"A veritable secret society of 121 dignitaries, the Prieuré de Sion, founded by Godfroi de Bouillon in Jerusalem in 1099, has numbered among its Grand Masters Leonardo da Vinci, Victor Hugo, and Jean Cocteau. This Order convened its Convent at Blois on 17 January 1981... As a result of this recent Convent at Blois, Pierre Plantard de Saint-Claire was elected grand master of the Order... This choice of grand master marks a decisive step in the evolution of the Order's conception and spirit in relation to the world; for the 121 dignitaries of the Prieuré de Sion are all éminences grises of high finance and of international political or philosophical societies; and Pierre Plantard is the direct descendant, through Dagobert II, of the Merovingian kings. His descent has been proved legally by the parchments of Queen Blanche of Castile, discovered by the Abbe Sauniére in the church at Rennes-le-Château (Aude) in 1891. These documents were sold by the priest's niece in 1965 to Captain Roland Stanmore and Sir Thomas Frazer, and were deposited in a safe-deposit box of Lloyds Bank Europe Limited of London." (31:214-15)
It seems that, following World War II, the Prieuré de Sion, and particularly Pierre Plantard, were intimately involved with the rise of Charles De Gaulle to the presidency of France.(232:318) The Messianic Legacy states: "Under the German occupation and the Vichy regime, secret societies, including freemasonry, had been strictly banned and membership of any such organisation was subject to severe penalties." The Vichy government would be supplanted courtesy of the Prieuré de Sion:
"It is hard for people to grasp that the Illuminati controlled Russia, Great Britain, Germany, and France during World War II, but they did. Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin were all Masons. DeGaulle of France was closely linked with several esoteric groups, and the Prieuré de Sion and Grand Orient Masons helped him to power in the 50s... the people of the world weren't ready for a world government, and most not even a united Europe. W.W. II was carried out to adjust people's thinking toward wanting European unity." (77:168)
Front organizations were formed to agitate for change, and the Prieuré de Sion assisted in the military coup that overthrew the Vichy government, clearing the way for DeGaulle.
"Modelled on the Committees of Public Safety during the French Revolution...the Committees [of Public Safety] began to agitate for a strong guiding hand in France which would be sympathetic to their cause. Only one person was deemed capable of providing such a hand—Charles de Gaulle. Thus the Committees of Algeria began to press insistently for De Gaulle to assume power in France, if necessary by means of a military coup. They received support from a number of high-ranking military men, including Marshal Alphonse Juin, who is alleged to have been an important member of the Prieuré de Sion. They also received support from a coalescing pro-Gaullist movement in France...whose leaders included Michel Debre--who became De Gaulle's Minister of Justice and, shortly after, between 1959 and 1962, Prime Minister of France. Another important pro-Gaullist figure was Geoges Bidault... Between 1945 and 1954, Bidault had worked closely with Robert Schuman...in drawing up plans for the EEC..." (232:330)
After De Gaulle was installed as President, however, he granted Algeria independence from France, which weakened France as an imperial power. [Editor's note: I don't know why the author uses "however" as weakening the colonial power is just what the elite sought to do.]Therefore, DeGaulle appointed Pierre Plantard secretary of a national 'Movement' for the defense of liberty to succeed the Committees. As "minister of propaganda," Plantard proceeded to dismantle and thereby defuse the Committees of Public Safety which might turn against DeGaulle. The announcement was published by Plantard's first wife, Anne Lea Hisler:
"When we first met M. Plantard in 1979, he told us that Charles de Gaulle had personally requested him to direct the French Committees of Public Safety and, when their task of installing the General in power had been completed, to preside over their dissolution. In a mimeographed pamphlet deposited with the Bibliothèque Nationale in 1964, Anne Lea Hisler—M. Plantard's first wife—states:
"Under the authority of Marshal Alphonse Juin, the seat of the Secretariat-General of the Committees of Public Safety in metropolitan France was at Aulnay-sous-Bois [Paris suburb]. This Committee was directed by Michel Debré, Pierre Plantard known as Way, and André Malraux...a member of the Prieure de Sion." (232:333,256)
Anne Lea Hisler, Plantard's wife, worked with her husband on the magazine of the Prieuré de Sion, CIRCUIT, an acronym for "Chivalry of Catholic Rules and Institutions of the Independent and Traditionalist Union."
"...the Prieuré de Sion was using its magazine for something other than its own internal business. The 1959 series of Circuit [contained] articles by Anne Lea Hisler and others, including Pierre Plantard, sometimes writing under his own name, sometimes under the pseudonym of 'Chyren'." (232:339-40)
The name "Hisler" is an adaptation of "Hitler." The Decatur Daily reported, "Fifty-seven years after his death, Hitler's name still has shock value, which may explain why so many people named Hitler - both in the United States and abroad - had their names legally changed during World War II. (I know a man named Hisler whose family name was spelled with a 't' instead of an 's' 60 years ago.) (1055)
The prophecies of Nostradamus included "...a number of detailed prophecies concerning Hitler (whom he calls Hisler), naming him as the 'second antiChrist'." Was Anne Lea Hisler really Anne Lea Hitler??? Is it possible that the wife of Pierre Plantard de Saint-Clair was related to the infamous Adolf Hitler???
The Templar Revelation confirms other reports of that Pierre Plantard de Saint-Claire at least had Nazi sympathies:
"Born in 1920, he first came to public notice in the Occupied France of 1942 as the editor of a journal called Vaincre pour une Jeune cehvalerie (Conquest for a Young Knighthood)—which was markedly uncritical of the Nazi oppressors, and which was actually published with their approval. This was officially the organ of the Order Alpha Galates, a quasi-Masonic and chivalric society, based in Paris, of which Plantard became the Grand Master at the age of just twenty-two...Vaincre is now  the title of the Priory's internal bulletin, which Pierre de Saint-Clair edits with his son Thomas." (242:43)
If Anne Lea Hisler was a relation of Adolf Hitler, Pierre Plantard de Saint-Clair would be related by marriage to the House of Rothschild (See: Mystery Babylon: The Zionists) and his children would be Rothschilds. The surname "Rothschild," in fact, stands for "Ruth's Child," signifying the House of Rothschild's presumption to the Messianic lineage of David and entitlement to redeem the land of Israel. (See: Heeding Bible Prophecy: New Israel)
Editor's note: It is my understanding that the name Rothschild is German for Red Shield. Ruth's child is the first time I have ever seen this translation of Rothschild.
Two observations are in order:
- Although Mayer Amschel Rothschild purchased the land of Israel (1836), Hitler may be credited with creating the demand for and populating the State of Israel a century later.
- Without Hitler, there could be no present Israel.
- It is doubtful the House of Rothschild would shell out their vast fortune to place on the throne of the coming world kingdom someone other than one of their own.
THOMAS PLANTARD DE SAINT-CLAIR
The Grand Master of the Prieuré de Sion since 1989 has been Thomas Plantard de Saint-Clair. According to Holy Blood, Holy Grail, Thomas is the son of the former Grand Master, the late Pierre Plantard de Saint-Clair. The following announcement of Thomas' election as Grand Master was published in the internal bulletin of the Prieuré de Sion in 1989, and only recently posted on the Internet.
Vaincre No. 3, September 1989, page 1
THOMAS PLANTARD de Saint-Clair
By virtue of article XVI "the various duties and titles of Grandmaster of the Priory of Sion shall be transmissible to their successor according to the same prerogatives."
By act dated 6 JULY 1989, Pierre PLANTARD de SAINT-CLAIR, the present Grandmaster, informed the 121 Masters that, in view of the favourable response of 107 votes in favour, 5 abstentions and 9 votes against accepting the proposed succession of title and prerogative, ratification had been made on 6 AUGUST 1989 in PARIS, at 10 o'clock solar time, and that THOMAS PLANTARD de Saint-Clair had been proclaimed Grandmaster. Information has been sent to all members of the ORDER. - 836:1
Merovingian sources collectively point to the Plantards and Saint-Clairs as the bloodlines that will produce the Grail King, the divine ruler, at once god and king, who will bring mankind into a utopian age of peace and prosperity. One piece of evidence for this choice is found in a recent best-seller, The Da Vinci Code: "Only two direct lines of Merovingians remain. Their family names are Plantard and Saint-Clair. Both families live in hiding, probably protected by the Priory." - 935:260
According to Marjorie Reeves' Joachim of Fiore and the Prophetic Future, a second Charlemagne will arise whose surname begins with 'P'.
"It was a Burgundian World Emperor that [Johann] Lichtenberger expected to arise as a Second Charlemagne. His hint as to who this will be is quite plain: 'And it is said in the book of the kings of the Franks that from the stock of King Charles of France [Charlemagne] will arise in the last days an Emperor, 'nomine P.', who will be the monarch of all Europe and reform Church and clergy. After him there shall be no ruler.'" - 823:110-111
E. W. Bullinger wrote in The Witness of the Stars, after which recent pseudo-Christian books have been patterned: "The day has here come to fulfill the prophecies concerning Him who is 'the Branch,' 'the Branch of Jehovah,' 'the man whose name is the Branch.'"- 939
The Prieuré de Sion was formed and has been directed by individuals related to the Saint-Clair bloodline. In Great Britain, the surname of this so-called sacred lineage is Sinclair. According to at least two Masonic sources, the Saint-Clairs are Grand Masters of Freemasonry by right of birth and they have historically controlled the Prieuré de Sion.
"Through marriage the family of Marie Levis St. Clair was connected to the de Gisors, the family from which the first and third grand masters of the Prieuré de Sion came. Without question, Prieuré de Sion was created and run by individuals related to the St. Clairs. The third grand master was in charge in the year that the Templars were ordered arrested and the treasure fleet set sail for Scotland to escape the agents of the French king. Did one St. Clair (from France) correspond with another Sinclair (from Scotland) for this express purpose? Most likely the answer is yes." (Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar) - 281:178
"Their domain [the Sinclair family—Scottish branch of the Norman Saint-Clair Gisors family] at Rosslyn was only a few miles from the former Scottish headquarters of the Knights Templar, and the chapel at Rosslyn—built between 1446 and 1486—has long been associated with both Freemasonry and the Rose-Croix. In a charter believed to date from 1601, moreover, the Sinclairs are recognized as 'hereditary' grand masters of Scottish Masonry.' This is the earliest specifically Masonic document on record. According to Masonic sources, however, the hereditary grand mastership was conferred on the Sinclairs by James II, who ruled between 1437 and 1460—the age of René d'Anjou." (Holy Blood, Holy Grail) - 31:183
In addition to conditioning the masses to believe their New Age propaganda, another objective of best-selling New Age books such as Holy Blood, Holy Grail is to covertly communicate secret information from the Prieuré de Sion to a specific audience—the global network of secret societies and New Age cults, all of which eagerly await the end of the Age of Pisces and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius. At that point in time, the much despised Church Age will come to a close and Lucifer, in the person of the Antichrist, will reign over a Golden Age, having destroyed the Harlot Church which no longer serves his purposes.In Holy Blood, Holy Grail, there is a childhood photo of Thomas Plantard de Saint-Clair seated on the lap of Pierre Plantard de Saint-Clair.
This peculiar photograph of Thomas Plantard, seated on the lap of Pierre, is conveying an esoteric message to the occultist. Please take note of the pose, Thomas sitting on the lap of Pierre. Below are some photographs of famous Black Virgins, also called Black Madonnas. Note the striking similarity of the poses of Pierre Plantard de Saint-Clair with Thomas and the Black Virgins with their sons who were child gods. Notice also the masculine appearance of the 'Madonnas' and the placement of their sons between their legs:
"Our ancient, battered, much-loved, little-understood Black Virgins are a still-living archetypal image that lies at the heart of our civilization and has a message for us.... The light of nature tells us that life is a pilgrimage, a journey to the stars along the Milky Way, her hero-path, a voyage across the great water in which she is the ship, rudder, and guiding star.
Notre Dame de Meymac
"Beyond general style, the genre of the statue is certainly that of an 'enthroned virgin', typical of the earliest icons of Mary. On behalf of Madonna and Child representations, Stephen Benko notes: It is well known that the iconography of Isis and [her son] Horus was basically adopted by Christians when they started to portray Mary and Jesus as Mother and Child.' Benko adds that Isis was sometimes 'pictured as black'... the Montserrat figures [and] over 1,000 of the world's better known Madonnas are black... "...Montserrat is located in Spain, not in France where St. Bernard of Clairvaux (the nephew of one of the original nine Knight Templars) and others produced well-known commentaries on the Canticles. Perhaps the image was created black to represent some esoteric religious symbolism. Ean Begg notes that the Shrine of Montserrat is among the best candidates for former sanctuaries for the Holy Grail. Further, in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries esoteric Christian sects proliferated, though not primarily in Spain." - 925
"Whoever the enigmatic Black Virgin may be, she holds a powerful attraction for her
millions of devotees around the world. Her sacred sites stand on highly charged earth
"From ancient times to present, people have undertaken pilgrimages to her shrines as
a way to explore her mysteries and to enable her to do her miraculous work of healing,
transformation, and inspiration. France has more than 300 Black Virgin sites, with over
150 Black Virgins still in existence."
Will Thomas Plantard de Saint-Clair be revealed as the reincarnation of Horus, i.e. Nimrod, who will at last
unite the world under Lucifer? Recall that the myth of Horus is a distortion of the Genesis account of God's
judgment on the Tower of Babel. Not happy with this arrangement, New Agers anticipate the return of Horus
as the reincarnation of Nimrod who will at last unite mankind in a victorious rebellion against God. (Gen. 10 and 11)
"Like the goddess Isis, who found and restored all of the lost pieces of her husband, Osiris, many are restoring the
unity of all life, bringing together the separate parts of humanity—different races, religions and cultures." - 42:62
ISIS — GODDESS OF THE THRONE
"The Black Virgin, [Pierre Plantard] insists, is Isis and her name is Notre-Dame de Lumière." - 272:14
"I AM Nature... The universal Mother, Mistress of all the elements, primordial child of time, sovereign of all things spiritual, Queen of the dead, Queen also of the immortals, the single manifestation of all gods and goddesses that are. The primeval Phrygians call me Pessinuntica, or Cybele, Mother of the gods; the Althenians, sprung from their own soil, call me Cecropian Artemis; for the islanders of Cypress I AM Paphian Aphrodite; for the archers of Crete I AM Dictynna, for the trilingual Sicilians, Stygian Persephone, and for the Elusinians, their Ancient Mother of the Corn, Demeter.
Isis is an onomatopoeic Asianic word, Ish-ish, meaning 'she who weeps'. Ezekiel 8 can be understood as a reference to Israel's participation in the Babylonian worship of Tammuz, the reborn Nimrod who, like Nimrod and Osiris, suffered an untimely death. Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD'S house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. - Ezek. 8:14
"Unfortunately, the youthful Tammuz (also known as Adonis, meaning 'lord,' in classical mythology) met an untimely death at the tusk of a wild boar. Here legend overtakes history altogether. Some accounts say that after three days Tammuz miraculously resurrected himself; others say that the grief-stricken Ishtar journeyed far into the netherworld to find him. After many days she succeeded, but during her absence the passion of love ceased to operate and all of life on earth languished in mourning. By all accounts, when the lamenting was over, Tammuz was firmly ensconced as the new god of the sun, and his renown eventually exceeded even Nimrod's.
"Every year following Tammuz' tragic death and presumed ascension to the sun, the forty days preceding Ishtar's festival were set aside for fasting and self-affliction to commemorate his suffering and death. (It was this practice, 'weeping for Tammuz,' that God called an abomination in Ezekiel 8:13, 14.) At the end of this period of mourning the people would waken early on the first day of the week and travel to the highest hills near their homes. There they would present their offerings of wine, meat, and incense and prostrate themselves before the rising sun, exclaiming 'Our lord is risen!' Then would commence the festivities of Ishtar, queen of heaven and goddess of fertility. In preparation for this high celebration, the people would make small cakes, inscribing them with a cross (a pagan fertility symbol), for baking in the sun and eating as part of their ritual. The day would conclude in orgiastic revelry of a most debasing sort, and often included human sacrifices." (1002)
Isis is the Greek form of more ancient Egyptian names; originally, Isis was known as Aset, or Eset which, in Egyptian, means 'Throne or Seat'. Black Virgins are traditionally seated on thrones in a manner similar to icons of the Egyptian Isis. Isis is typically represented as a woman wearing on her head the hieroglyphic symbol of her [Egyptian] name, which represents a throne or seat. Her original headdress was an empty throne chair belonging to her murdered husband, Osiris.
"Among the Egyptians, Isis is often represented with a headdress consisting of the empty throne chair of her murdered husband, and this peculiar structure was accepted during certain dynasties as her hieroglyphic." - Manly P. Hall, Masonic, Hermetic, Quabbalistic & Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy
Isis represents the dynastic seat of authority whose offspring are destined by their birthright to rule as kings. ISIS is THE THRONE.
Throne of Isis
Definition: The headdress of the Egyptian goddess Isis. Isis is the Greek derivative of the Egyptian name Aset, (or Auset), meaning throne or seat of authority. Isis was the embodiment of authority, and divine right to rule was by her authority. Osiris reborn is often depicted as an infant on the lap of Isis, where she is the literal personification of a throne. - 918
"As a later identity of Isis with Horus, she shows how papal and kingly thrones all hark back to the lap of Isis upon which sits enthroned the child-god. Each gave birth to savior gods who would die and be reborn in annual cycles (a parallel to the Demeter/Kore myth), and our modern festivals of Christmas and Easter re-celebrate this primeval human rite. Depicted as black virgin, this Madonna incorporates aspects of Kali. Medieval cathedrals (called in France 'Notre Dame'—literally, 'Our Lady') are venerations of the ancient Great Goddess' majesty." - 928
"Isis was the embodiment of authority, and divine right to rule was by her authority... papal and kingly thrones all hark back to the lap of Isis." The divine right of kings would explain the longevity of the cult of Isis and her esteem among royalty who believe themselves to be descendants of a divinity. Lewis Spence wrote in Ancient Egyptian Myths and Legends, the cult of Isis has survived from the dynastic period of Egypt through the Classical period and Holy Roman Empire and is, today, principally carried on in Paris, the location of the Prieuré de Sion.
"Isis, or Ast, must be regarded as one of the earliest and most important conceptions of female godhead in ancient Egypt. In the dynastic period she was regarded as the feminine counterpart of Osiris, and we may take it that before the dawn of Egyptian history she occupied a similar position... No other deity has probably been worshipped for such an extent of time, for her cult did not perish with that of most other Egyptian gods, but flourished later in Greece and Rome, and is seriously carried on in Paris to-day." (995)
Peter Dawkins wrote in The Great Vision that, in Cabalistic mysticism, the Throne (Isis) also represents the Temple in which the union of the Virgin Soul (the initiate) to the Spirit (Lucifer) takes place. This union, which is achieved only by the highest adepts and masters, produces the Christ Child who is the 'living embodiment of Light', which Dawkins states is the meaning of Horus. In other words, Horus is the incarnation of the 'Spirit' Lucifer.
"The Enthroned Lady or Heavenly Queen is the ancient title of Isis, the virgin mother of Horus, as also of Mary, the virgin mother of Jesus. The hieroglyphic symbol of Isis used by the Ancient Egyptians was that of a throne—Isis being the actual throne or seat upon which the child Horus sits as King of Light (the Sun King). The same symbol is employed in Christian iconography, and Mary is portrayed as the 'throne' or 'seat', with the Christ Child seated in her lap, his head aligned with her heart. It is a carefully constructed and important symbol, revealing many mysteries.
"In the Hebraic cabbala, the Throne is described as the Merkabah or Throne of Glory—the perfect dwelling place of the Lord. It is the supreme and pure Tabernacle or Temple in which the Messianic Presence of the Lord God may dwell and be manifest. That is to say, it is the perfect form of divine manifestation, the virgin Soul, Bride to the Spirit. The sublime union of the receptive, responsive Bride with the active, creative Spirit produces (i.e. gives birth to) the Messiah as the Christ Child, the living embodiment of Light (which is what the word Jesus or Horus means). In biblical terms it means that the 'living soul', Adam, becomes a 'life-giving Spirit', Christ: the former being a receptacle of life, the latter being a creator of life, in the same symbolic sense that a moon may become a sun, or a light-receiving vessel may transform itself into a light-producing star. Out of the cosmic form of Nature are born the shining Sons of Light. (902:70)
In preparation for the occult New Age of the Spirit, the high level initiates who have infiltrated the Laodicean Church will attempt to palm off Lucifer as the Holy Spirit, in accordance with the Manichean tradition that the Holy Spirit is the transformed Lucifer. Eventually, the Virgin-Bride (Isis) is 'married' to the Christ Child (Horus), who is the incarnation of her husband/brother, Osiris, aka Lucifer, the Spirit with whom she united:
"The Temple, synonymous with the Throne, was also used as a hieroglyph for Isis, the Virgin Mother or Soul. When the Temple is so filled with the Presence of God that it is set on fire with divine love and light (which a perfect Temple will be), then it becomes, or is, a pyre of flame—a 'Pyramid'. And in becoming a pyre of light, it moves, it becomes active. The Throne becomes a Chariot. The motionless Temple becomes a living Flame.
"Just as a flame enables light to be manifested as a blazing orb or sun of radiant light, so the perfect Soul enables the Spirit to become fully manifest as the Christ Child. Just as the central orb of light sits enthroned in the midst of the flame, shining its radiance or glory all around, so the Christ Child sits as a King of Glory upon His Throne: Horus sits upon Isis; Jesus sits upon Mary; the Christ Consciousness sits upon man's soul. Then, just as the flame becomes identified with the light, swallowed up by its glory, so the Mother becomes identified with her Child, 'assumed' and 'married', as it were to her Son... In Christian symbology, Jesus seated upon the lap of his Mother, or Jesus enthroned in the centre of the Vesica Piscis (the 'flame-vessel of the Fish'), mean the same. It is the revelation of the Supreme Mystery or Gnosis; the revelation of Christ, the Son or Light of God; the revelation of the Divine Idea or Divine Consciousness, which is Truth.
"The Christ Child is the Sun-King, and his Throne or Mother is the Kingdom of Heaven, the Empire of Peace and Plenty that is bathed in the golden glory of Christ Consciousness. It is, or can be, both individual and universal, Jerusalem (meaning 'the Great Peace') is another name for the Kingdom. Old Jerusalem is the Mother—the psyche; New Jerusalem is the Mother with Child—the 'heavenly' or beautiful Soul that has attained Christ Consciousness." (902:70)
According to a Masonic source, The Hiram Key, there was a prophecy given by a Teacher of Righteousness to the Gnostic Essene Community of Qumran, which was associated with the Society of Ormus, that two messianic figures of the end time would have the following titles:
"...The man who would lead them at the 'End of the Age', the Davidic Messiah, had such titles as 'Mighty Man', 'Man of Glory', 'Prince of Light'... God, however, will save his people by the hands of two messianic figures who arise at the end of time; one from 'Branch of David', and the other 'The Interpreter of the Law'." - 162:201
The symbology of the light and the glory applies to Thomas Plantard de Saint-Clair on several levels. Firstly, Saint-Clair is French for holy light:
"The name Saint-Clair is derived from the Latin Sanctus Clarus, meaning 'Holy Light'." - 29:297
The word 'clairvoyant' is derived from Latin words meaning to see the light, not merely in the sense of a realization, but in the mystical sense of actually seeing living entities (light beings) in the spiritual realm.
Main Entry: clair·voy·ant Etymology: French, from clair clear (from Latin clarus) + voyant, present participle of voir to see, from Latin vidEre
"Clairvoyance. The faculty of seeing with the inner eye or spiritual sight... Real clairvoyance means the faculty of seeing through the densest matter (the latter disappearing at the will and before the spiritual eye of the Seer), and irrespective of time (past, present, and future) or distance." - 316:85
The surname Saint-Clair esoterically denotes a bloodline of high level initiates who have experienced union with Lucifer. The designation of young Thomas as the Horus-King means that he is the living embodiment of the Light, i.e., Lucifer. In the mystery religion of ancient Egypt, Horus was the offspring of Isis and Osiris who were fraternal twins before they became husband and wife. This arrangement, of course, was incest—a practice not uncommon among the ancient gods and goddesses. Set and Nephthys were brother and sister as were King Arthur and Morgaine, who are regarded by the Merovingians as divine descendants of Jesus Christ, and the offspring of the latter unholy union, Modred, was believed to be the 'Celtic Christ'. Laurence Gardner rationalizes that King Arthur's sexual union with his sister was not really incestuous, but rather a rebirth of the ancient archetypal androgynous Godhead:
"Writers have sometimes deemed Arthur's sexual relationship with his half-sister Morgaine to be incestuous—but this is not the way it was regarded in Celtic Britain. At that time, the anciently perceived dual nature of God prevailed, as did the equally ancient principle of the 'sacred sister-bride—so revered in the holy ritual of Mesopotamia. In this regard, the Prayer of the Celts began, 'Our Father-Mother in the heavens'. In conjunction with this, specifically defined rites were performed to denote the mortal incarnation of the 'dual male-female entity'. As the earthly manifestation of the goddess Cerridwin,...Morgaine represented the female aspect of the duality. Arthur was her true male counterpart in the established royal tradition of the Pharaohs. On the festival of Beltane (the spring equinox), Arthur was apprehended as a god in human form and obliged to participate in a ritual of sacred intercourse between the twin aspects of the incarnate Father-Mother. In view of Arthur and Morgaine's supposed divinity during this rite, any male offspring from the union would be deemed the 'Celtic Christ', and would be duly anointed as such. By virtue of this, although Arthur was destined to become the prominent subject of romantic history, it was his son Modred who held the highest spiritual position: he was designated Christ of Britain; the ordained Archpriest of the Sacred Kindred, and an anointed Fisher King.... Contrary to all myth and legend, it was the dying Archpriest Modred (not Arthur) who was carried from the field by his mother Morgaine's Holy Sisters." - 29:205-6
The occult traditions glorify incest for other reasons that defy logic, but then occultists typically glorify the irrational or subjective over logical and objective ways of thinking. Cathy Burns explains in her book, Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated, another reason for the exaltation of incest.
"Occultist and psychologist Carl Jung, adds: 'Alchemy...exalted the most heinous transgression of the law, namely incest, into a symbol of the union of opposites, hoping in this way to bring back the golden age." - 39:177
In other words, when mankind reaches the nadir of its depravity, the divine spark within each man will generate an opposing impulse toward transformation and the Golden Age will begin—this Utopia of peace and prosperity into which the Grail King will lead mankind. Based on this esoteric concept, which is discussed further in Libra, the Antichrist must exemplify the reprobate condition to which mankind must stoop in order for the transformation to begin. Utter madness! says the rational man. However, sensible persons may be assured that behind the irrational belief system of the occult is the archenemy of mankind, Lucifer, scheming to provoke God's wrath on the human race.
The 'Great Work' is the union of the soul with the Divine by means of sexual alchemy. This union, we are told, is not to be confused with sexuality as we understand it today. Then what is it, pray tell? A rather eerie New Age website, World Soul Media, carries an online book titled Heavenly Partners: The Mystical Marriage Revealed, which gives explicit details of the author's "daring and beautiful accounts of the mystical marriage ceremony and the resultant alchemical fusion of the author with the Theosophical Masters, by which the author begins The Great Work - the transformational process of becoming an Ascended Master while still on the physical plane." (1056:Intro) Chapter 6 titled, "Sexual Alchemy: Tantra Yoga" features a side view of the Divine Androgyne of Nantes while explaining its significance as a Heavenly Partner fused with a human being:
Today there are New Age books which instruct readers on how to have sexual intercourse with spirits. The following promotional for Sexual Alchemy: Magical Intercourse with Demons by Donald Tyson makes Jesus' words in Matt. 24:37 a present reality:
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. - Matt. 24:37
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. - Gen. 6:1"Chances are that you've heard of Tantra and Taoist sexual practices. Now, as a result of studying the inner mysteries of alchemy, Donald Tyson presents a Western system of sacred sexuality in Sexual Alchemy. Here you will learn how to have erotic relationships with loving spirits. That means the methods presented here can function as a Western alternative to Eastern sexual practices. They also can be used by a solitary person and need not depend upon the participation of a partner.
"The first part of this book presents a history of sex with spirits. It also goes into the secrets of Eastern internal alchemy and how the books of Western alchemy often made secretive references to sexual magick. You will also learn how to create a physical representation of the spirit you are going to use as a partner. "The second part of the book includes the practices and techniques which the author found to be effective from other sources or developed himself. This includes techniques of diet, exercise, breathwork, banishings, purifications, and finally, an invocation ritual to summon the spirit who is going to be your lover! "Then you will learn the previously hidden secrets of having sex with a spirit lover. You''ll learn how to prepare and recognize the signs that this is an actual occurrence and not simply a fantasy. And then, when you have accomplished your ritualized mating, you will learn how to collect and use the resulting, highly charged fluids for magical purposes. "Everything we are, everything we have, is a gift from the Divine. Doesn't it make sense that we use all of our abilities to honor the source from which they came? That means we can even make use of our sensual natures to honor the Gods. If you want to follow a system based on Western traditions, this book can be your guide." (1056)
The Underground Streams website speaks of an extraterrestrial Current that would one day mate with human beings:
"[Aleister] Crowley was aware of the possibility of opening the spatial gateways and of admitting an extraterrestrial Current in the human life-wave... In the new aeon, a race will be propagated of magically generated beings able to probe extraterrestrial dimensions. And the next stage in the advancement of evolution on the planet 'will be achieved by a willed congress [sexual intercourse] with extraterrestrial entities of which, in a sense, Aiwaz (Aleister Crowley's Guardian Angel) is the immediate messenger to humanity.'" (379)
A "willed congress" with extraterrestrials is called a sacred marriage or alchemical wedding, which unites a human being with Lucifer under the guise of returning the soul to its former androgynous state: "According to Gnostic teachings:
"...the soul is a female (the Greek word for soul, psyche, is feminine). Originally she is a virgin, androgynous in form, living in the presence of the heavenly Father. When she falls into a body, however, she is defiled; after abandoning her Father's house and her virginity, she falls into sexuality and prostitution, and is abused by the wanton adulterers of this carnal world. Desolate and repentant, she prays to her Father for restoration, and he hears her prayer. She is returned to her former condition, and restored to androgynous union with her brother. This union is achieved through spiritual marriage; the bridegroom comes down to the bridal chamber, and the soul and her bridegroom 'become a single life', inseparable from each other. Thus the ascent of the soul to the Father is accomplished, and the soul is again at home in heaven." William C. Robinson, Jr., in The Nag Hammadi Library (1057)

"In the book entitled The Guilt of the Templars, we are told that 'the Knights Templar's confessions show them to have been basically homosexual warrior order... Other chargers were that the Knights templar participated in black magic and pederasty (anal intercourse, usually with a boy). They practiced 'phallicism or sex-worship and Satanism and venerated 'The Baphomet,' the idol of the Luciferians. The crime of sodomy was a rite of Templar initiation." - 625:104
"...in ancient Egypt, Set was worshipped with obscene, homosexual rituals. We are told that the rituals performed for Set and Sirius were so horrible and debased 'that later rulers of Egypt defaced their temples and obelisks and tried to drive them from the land.' In mythology, we find that Set himself was involved in incest for he married his sister, Nephthys." - 625:80
