This one is a bit more tricky to pinpoint than most Secret Societies and I suppose that in itself is a good thing for the Society involved.There has been a lot of Disinformation and falsehoods spread about the Rosicrucian’s as in where they began and by whom. This in part is down to the many offshoots that have sprung from the name Rosicrucians. But for all intense purposes, this branch first came to light in the early 17th Century in a series of Manifestos that were released to the common man in the search for more initiatives. The manifestoes were allegorical in nature that suited the veil of mysticism that went hand in hand with the Rosicrucians. Between 1614 and 1620, about 400 manuscripts and books were published which discussed the Rosicrucian documents. The manifestos directly state:-
“We speak unto you by parables, but would willingly bring you to the right, simple, easy, and ingenuous exposition, understanding, declaration, and knowledge of all secrets.”
The Brotherhood of the rosy cross started out by a man named Christian Rosenkreuz we will go into his story first as this seems to be the main version of how they came about. Who being dissatisfied with monastic life the youth had travelled to the east in search of wisdom finding himself. Welcomed as one long expected by the sages in Arabia he translated their masterpiece on the mathematical and magical universe into Latin he observed how the savants shared their knowledge without jealousy hypocrisy or egoism.
Christian When he returned picked himself Twelve men of status in the community men who were doctors, mathematicians and alchemists. They formed themselves into a brotherhood known as the Rosicrucian Order or Order of the Rose Cross. The teachings of this Order were given only to a select few.
This is said to of happened in the year 1407 or there about’s and as well as the story of he chose 12 men this is from the Rosicrucian.s own writings. Other accounts say he is said to have selected no more than eight men each a doctor and a sworn bachelor eight or twelve it was a small following I think the use of twelve is to try and emulate something of Christ although saying that Christian was the Thirteenth and they made an oath.
- To heal the sick without payment
- To maintain a secret fellowship
- To find a replacement for himself before he died.
Under Christians direction a Temple, called Sanctus Spiritus was built in English this is “The House of the Holy Spirit”, There they would learn there Occult ways mixed with Christianity to appeal to the public like your Freemasons and the supreme being. Christian was laid to rest and the Brotherhood seemed to of went silent. For three Generations later when Science Philosophy and Religion had become more common and were slowly being changed this was the time for the Rosicrucian’s to make their selfs known to widen the membership and to preach and teach what they wanted to be known.
Remember this was the time just before “The Enlightenment” a time when throughout Britain, France and the rest of Europe a whole new era had dawned great thinkers questioned the Status quo and embraced the notion that things could be changed. The outcome was changes in Science Philosophy and Religion the Enlightenment produced Discoveries, Laws, Inventions, Scientific discoveries. Wars like The American and French Revolutions were directly inspired by Enlightenment and this was all Influenced behind the scenes by the Rosicrucian Enlightenment, The Illuminati was Birthed in 1776 and the Rothschilds had more than a starting role throughout this time.
The start of the 17th Century was the time for the Brother Hood of the rosy cross to step out as they believed it was the time when others would benefit from their knowledge. There was a reason of why Christians Death was kept in a shroud of secrecy as he was to be placed in a hidden Heptagonal chamber built by himself and his body was surrounded by a wealth or storehouse as some have said of knowledge. Written on his Sarcophagus was the phrase originally in latin
in translation, “Jesus is everything to me, by no means empty, the freedom of the gospel, the untouched glory of god,
This chamber was located in the Interior of the earth as well as having a Christian inscription among others it had the Alchemical motto V.I.T.R.I.O.L
Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapidem
Translated “Visit the interior of the Earth; by rectification, thou shalt find the hidden stone.”.
And from then studied deeper with the knowledge from the mass of Information found in this hidden tomb and from that they hold to a doctrine or theology “built on esoteric truths of the ancient past”, which, “concealed from the average man, provide insight into nature, the physical universe and the spiritual realm.” Rosicrucianism is symbolised by the Rosy Cross or Rose Cross and has continued the Mystery School religion. For the best part of 200 Years, they went about their ways. As the story goes Christians body was found round about 1604 after some alterations were being made to the Temple they found him with a book with the Letter T on his body well preserved for 120 years. With all the Paraphernalia and instruments found it was time to fashion the Order Nothing was printed until the year 1614 when a small pamphlet written in the German language was circulated trying to draw those of similar thoughts as the Major Component was Alchemy and Francis bacon and friends were in full swing.
The time Before The Time before Rosenkreuz.
Like every society is birth is always one for the history books another for the participants and sometimes one that only a chosen few know about. For example look at the Freemasons they say about 1717 and the first Grand lodge was the start but the Eastern star was up and about Many believe to have a french Origin from 1703. Freemasonry was just a rebranded knights templar Rosslyn chapel the interior attests to this. Also the Name freemason came about in 1390 when four representatives of the “mystery” or trade where elected to the Common council in London and this was the time the first use of the name Freemasons was used in English it was struck out and from then the word Mason only was used. There is also scrolls like the Kirkwall scroll that talks of the transition from Templer to freemason.
The Illuminati was said to of been birthed in 1776 by Jesuit-trained Adam Weishaupt and then they went into a freemason lodge but the fact is The Illuminati was Birthed in a masonic Lodge Adam was initiated as a Freemason in 1774 in either Hanover or Munich not 1777 Adam Weishaupt into the bargain was a crypto-Jew like Ignatius Loyola of The Jesuits. The Rosicrucians have a time before the time as well.
Booklets on The Brotherhood of the rosy cross tells us that the Order traces its origins to the Ancient Mystery schools and this came out of secret schools that were put in place by the grandfather of Thutmose the 111. Who in turn organised the present physical form followed by the present secret Brotherhood and outlined many of its rules and regulations This was also known as The Great White Brotherhood. back in Egypt about 1500, bc Although he was into the religious mindset of his day he devoted himself behind temple walls to the study and investigation of ‘The Mysteries” i.e Naturel phenomena.
His Descendent Amenhotep iv in the year 1355B.C was the leader of the Mystery schools you may know him has king Tuts Dad Akhenaten and he was known as The Heretic Pharoah who was the Worlds first devotion to a doctrine of monotheism. Whether this can be corroborated or not the Brotherhood of the Rosy Cross have laid claim to that is where their teachings Originate from one of their booklets reads.
“From Egypt,” continues our prospectus “The Secret Teachings of their Brotherhood spread into Greece and thence into Rome. During the Middle ages, they were concealed under a variant of Different names.
What is true is that these mystery schools of the Ancient Cities of Greece and Rome incorporated many traditions and mythologies from the surrounding Areas such as Persia and Egypt. And the brotherhood attest to the above statement although the 1600s started to see a shift in religious freedom the Rosicrucians would have had to conceal their pagan practices and do their rites and rituals in secret as those with religious fervour would be hot on any bodies trail who was Practising paganism.
Historical time After.
Right we see that the Rosicrucian Fraternity has and still do lay claim to being the successors of a long line of Mystic ancestry that stems from the Semitic Brotherhood of light or the great white brotherhood. They also claim to have found the errors in the religious teaching of the day and sought after the Esoteric truths of Christianity. Which is another way of saying the mystery schools of the past are Gnostic in origin and they build on the Gnostic teachings of Christianity. Teachings that Christ is not the son of God but one of many ascended masters and this they say he gave them the Light of the Logos to the Earth.
The issue with the Christian RosenKreutz story that acording to the manifestoes surfaced around the end of the 14th Century is this. In the 13th Century, there are traces of an organised group of men who outwardly professed Christianity who modelled their group on the Oriental societies. They blended an early form of what was to become theosophy, Kabbalism, Alchemy, Astrology and Mysticism, to be honest, I have found except for the gnostic teachings that Alchemy was no doubt the cornerstone of Rosicrucianism.
We have it Documented in a Rosicrucian Pamphlet named the “Who and What” says the the Order is mentioned as far back as 1115 A.D in a book of collections of Brother ‘Omins Morian’. It says that the establishment of a society named the Magical Union was formed in that year of 1115 A.D and it gives condition for entering the society of “Wise Men” the last and youngest possessors of the secrets of the ancients: the initiates wore a triangle as symbolising power, Wisdom and love they also had secret sciences only fully understood by the members of high esteem in the brotherhood they were known as Mage or Wise master’s and they operated in things that seemed supernatural.
Down the line, we have groups like the golden dawn who drew heavily from the Rosicrusions as did the Freemasons Remeber the story we are told is never the true story. The official story of the Rosicrucian is the Christian RosenKreutz Version but we know that is only part of the story and no doubt is an allegory for a deeper meaning. Whether a real Christian lived or not Like the Freemasons birthed in 1717 but we have read in this Article that they were formed years earlier and came out the Templar knights and no doubt the Rosicrucian’s did also but back to the narrative.
Anyway back to the start of the 13th Century traces of an organised group are to be found in the Rosery of Arnold de Villanova round about the year 1230.A.D and the Kabbalistic term of the “Sons of the Order” are used. There is mention in the Theoria of Raymond Lulli Circa 1322 of a “Societas Physicorum” and also of “Rex Physicorum” in the 14th Century a count von Falkenstein is known as “Most illustrious and serene prince and father of Philosophes”. Hence it would seem that besides the Moorish schools which existed in Spain there were similar associations with Christians. It is not difficult to account for the transmission of such Brotherhoods from ancient times. Since Cabalists and Gnostics studied the secret arts and it is probable the persecutions they were subject too were prompted by alarm other than the heretical Doctrines they taught.
There is mention of the Romance of the Rose that is an initiation system in the Allegory of Gay Science in Which the term love is used theosophically. The next few years seen works written by Magician Eliphas Levi and poets like William de Lorris.
Other Societies would abandon all to go into the Mystic side of things. At the time a Dominican by the name of John Tauler established a Fraternity the members used hand signals to identify each other a practice that the freemasons would do. Then in 1357 Nicholas Flamel came on the scene he purchased an ancient book bound in brass that had by the looks of it been written on leaves. He travelled for help to decipher the text that had been subscribed by Abraham the Jew and after a time of troubles and many Experiments he was said to of made gold he said “by his own account” he helped in erecting many buildings like Churches, Chapels Hospitals and the book was said to have in the hands of a German Gentleman in the year 1378 and this was when the “Fraternitas Rose Crucis” and this was when the Brotherhood was attributed to Christian RosenKruetz.
From its Mystery schools in Egypt years later Greek philosophers such as Thales and Pythagoras, the Roman philosopher Plotinus, and others, journeyed to Egypt and were initiated into the mystery schools. Coming home they formed small groups and slowly introduced their teachings and carried on albeit not in the Rosicrucian Society The name of the Order, as it is now known, the order came in many a guise and name. However, the Rosicrucian Order always perpetuated its heritage of ancient symbolism and principles.
so whether its one of the three that Birthed the Group or all three stories are true there you have a brief outline of how the Brotherhood of the rose cross came about.
Gnosticism and teaching.
The Rosicrucian’s are ones for believing in a principle deity with a yin and yang sort of attitude while it is dark to the one, it is light to the other and the other way around. The Gnostic Hierarchy consists of an arch-priest or patriarch, twelve masters and seventy-two leaders or Bishops (all biblical overtones). The Gnostics called matter, or the body ‘Evil’ and ‘Darkness’ and seem uncertain in its operations at times as in whether it’s active or passive. It is believed that these sectaries that they where the origination of intelligent beings.
These were the Aeons producing the various phases in creation and in time arose a mighty being the Demiurge who went about using existing matter to create what we now call earth. At the same time, he is unaware of the Archons above him the demiurge “the half-maker” There is an authentic half, a true deific component within creation, but it is not recognised by the half-maker that Sophia is existing above the shaping of the material world and in turn gave birth to the demiurge.
Like Buddhism, Gnosticism begins with the fundamental recognition that earthly life is filled with suffering. In order to nourish themselves, all forms of life consume each other,
The Alexandrian Gnostics who gave us the Alexandrian text the Vatican used inclined to the opinion that matter was inert or passive Not having or manifesting active properties. While the Syrian Gnostics held it was Active. as well as Rome having the Alexandrian influence Augustine fell under the Gnostic influence and retained this belief all through his twenties.
The Gnostics believed that Jesus Christ teachings were not fully understood by his disciples and believed that the paraclete would lead them into all truth the Paraclete being the holy spirit the Gnostics believed that Salvation was gained by Knowledge not a Gift, They believed Christ was just a man and he sinned like any man until Matthew 3 v 13-17 his baptism in a sense I see how they came to that but still its not scriptural as scripture tells us
God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corithians 5 v 21
Gnostics believed that in order to acquire salvation one must possess a certain knowledge, or gnosis, which must be delivered to a person by a messenger of light. However, to receive this knowledge, one must be trying to reach beyond the evil, dark, material, physical earth and body toward that of the good, light, immaterial, and spiritual worlds. The indwelling spark must be awakened from its terrestrial slumber by the saving knowledge that comes “from without.” Jesus is one of the most fundamental “awakeners” of this knowledge.
this is from the website Rosicrution.com
Question: Do the Rosicrucians teach that the Christ was a divine Messenger — the Savior of the world?
Answer: Yes, Christ Jesus was the greatest being that has ever functioned in a physical body on our Earth. However, the Rosicrucian Teachings explain that Jesus was a man and that at the Baptism, he surrendered his lower vehicles to the Christ Spirit to use in His ministry on the material plane. At the Crucifixion, the Christ was released from the bodies of Jesus and entered into the Earth. This great Archangel is still the indwelling Spirit of the Earth, is still the Savior of mankind. After a careful study of the teachings as given out by the Rosicrucian Fellowship, the Christ becomes a living factor in the lives of students, who not only recognise the divinity of Christ but who make every effort to follow in His footsteps.
A quick Rebuttal of this statement I see they equate Christ as an Archangel when Scripture in Hebrews 1 and 2 talk about how he is made a little lower but at the same time talk of him being.
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Hebrews 1 v 3
And in Philippians, it says that
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: Philippians 2 v 6
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily Colossians 2 v 9
Question: Do the Rosicrucians believe in Rebirth and the law of consequence?
Answer: In the 17th chapter of Matthew verses 11, 12, 13, Jesus gave his disciples a very wonderful demonstration of the philosophy of rebirth. After his transfiguration, he plainly said that Elias had come already and the disciples understood he had reference to John the Baptist. The 8th chapter of Job and the latter portion of the 19th chapter tells us of rebirth.
The Rosicrucians teach that all the causes set into action in one life cannot ripen in one existence and that all things must reach a stage of fruition, that “Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap.” This is one of the biblical teachings, that man must reap his own harvests from the seeds he has sown, be they good or evil; therefore each individual passes through a number of earth lives during which he builds character. It is at this stage of his living that he either enjoys the fruits of his past building or is suffering from the results of his evil deeds.
ok lets look at the only scripture they use to justify Karma and that we have to be reincarnated to reach fruition
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise, shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist. Matthew 17 v 11-13
I can go with a basic answer or one with a bit more depth and of course knowing myself if you ask me how to drive ill tell you how to build the Car then how to drive. The Transmigration of souls and Karma are common all around the world and in the east especially Buddism it had quite an impact on some societies like India and their caste system as they can’t change the family they are born into so reincarnation carried if a good life a chance of maybe a higher caste in the next life Buddhism is really an ideology and we saw from reading that round about the 14th century secret societies were introducing concepts from the middle east and incorporating them into Christianity.
But concerning the above scripture first of all Christ says that Elijah has to come talking of Malachi 4 v 5 .
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD Malachi 4 v 5
But John the Baptist was not Elijah as in the actual Elijah as when asked if he was he replied
And this is the record of John when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?
And he confessed and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.
And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No. John 1 v 19-21
He was Elijah in spirit sent to prepare the way for the Lord
But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.
And thou shalt have joy and gladness and many shall rejoice at his birth.
For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb.
And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.
And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. Luke 1 v 13-17
So we see hear John the baptist gives a clear no when asked and we see from The Angel in the Lord clearing up that he is sent to prepare the way for the Lord in the spirit of Elijah and John preached and Baptised the people to make them ceremonially clean as they did before anything to Do With the Lord like when they prepared for him in Exodus 19 v 10
And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes, Exodus 19 v 10
John In Matthew 3 baptised the people unto repentance with water as the one who would Jesus Christ) come would baptise with Fire others use that John the Baptist had the same clothes Matthew 3 v 4 as Elijah 2 Kings one eight people are really scraping the barrow with this one im pretty sure men who were Prophets would of dressed for the weather we have got to remember up until recently things were the same generation from Generation not like in the 90s we wore boot cut denims then its skinny Jeans( A fashion more feminine).
Hebrews 11 talk of the old testament figures dressed “they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;”
also “he wore a rough garment, either made of camels’ hair, as that of John Baptist, or of a skin, dressed with the hair on. Sir J. Chardin informs us, in a Ms note on this place, cited by Mr Harmer, that the eastern dervishes and Fakeers are clothed just as Elijah was, with a hairy garment, girded with a leathern girdle.”
I’ve read and Agree that the Modern Rosicrucians are similar to that of Scientology instead of L.Ron Hubbard’s sci-fi we have New age beliefs today it’s as easy as sending them a couple of hundred pounds and your are a member and you receive an introductory Lesson that covers their Mystical belief System.
They have degrees like other Societies and this would have come from the stages that the Order went through we read above that they used hand signs and some say the Freemasons borrowed Ideas from the Rosicrutiuons but the degrees were already in use as the Templars picked up a system of 4 from the Hassasins. Scientology too has levels The Rose cross have various levels and in your first 5
Scientology too has Degrees The Rose cross have various levels and in your first 5 year’s you will cover the three Neophyte degrees from the First Atruim through Third Atrium, and then the “temple” section from First Temple Degree through Ninth Temple Degree. By this time your teaching will include topics such as:
- Mental Alchemy
- Telepathy, Telekinesis, Vibroturgy, and Radiesthesia
- Cosmic Protection, Mystical Regeneration
- Attunement with the Cosmic Consciousness
They also offer Magical assistance to those in need that they make available for successful Petitioners by their Council of Solace you can find this at their website Rosicrcion.org/council of Solace and they describe how this works
The Council does this by putting certain spiritual energies into motion and directing them in accordance with mystical law and natural principles. Metaphysical aid is thus directed to individuals …with health, domestic, economic, or other problems, and aid is also directed to those who are attuned with the Council. The aid of the Council of Solace operates on the cosmic plane. Its activity is solely metaphysical and in no way interferes with any professional or health-care assistance being received on the physical plane.
And this Magic that they use is rooted is Alchemy the art of transmutation on the Rosicrucian website it says it came into prominence with the Alexandrian Greeks. It was then introduced to the Arabs, who then transmitted this art and forerunner of chemistry to Europe. Modern Rosicrutionism in my studies is New age Alchemy with Christian mysticism again there is roots to the Knights Templar who in contact with the Arab civilisation at the time of the Crusades, brought much of this wisdom to the West and they learnt it from the Ashashins who were heavy influenced by Islamic Mysticism a sect known as the Sufis.
As well as the Chemical side to Alchemy there was just as big a side into magic and some noteworthy names are Cagliostro, Nicholas Flamel, and Robert Fludd.But we have already Heard about Flammel who gave Alchemy a new lease. Western alchemy flourished in Greco-Roman Egypt, the Islamic world during the Middle Ages, and then in Europe from the 13th to the 18th centuries. Indian alchemists and Chinese alchemists made contributions to Eastern varieties of the art. there are two main components of Alchemy when the Chemical side is spoken of.
A Mythical substance that can transform one base to another the most common is Lead to Gold and its sought after by all who practice Alchemy and all stems from a Gnostic mindset of Egyptian and Jewish Mysticism and if you are aware of that you will get Neoplatonists.
Stone of the Wise, Diamond of Perfection, Universal Medicine, and the Elixir, could be the universal solvent (alkahest) to get to its quintessence, aurum potable (drinkable gold) is other names and. It has parallels, to the holy grail, a masonic keystone and the Yesodic foundation stone of the Kabbalah, the garden of Eden’s forbidden fruit A man of the Name of Albertus Magnus is said to of passed it to Thomas Aquinas and said to of had The Philosophers stone in Powder. Theory of exactly what it was and how it was made differed from practitioner to practitioner
‘the purest gold’ as in, gold so ripe that it’s seeds create more gold. If one simply purified god enough, the result would be the stone.Michael Sendivogius
Paracelsus describes a tincture, that when gold was added to it multiplied the gold. Depending on the quality, maybe 10 times, maybe 10 000 times. To him, the ‘alkahest’ is the matter of which the four elements are made of.
Elixer of Life
The elixir of life, also known as the elixir of immortality and sometimes equated with the philosopher’s stone, is a mythical potion that supposedly grants the drinker eternal life and/or eternal youth In truth, they’re basically the same thing.This is one of the two main things sought after by alchemists (the other being the philosopher’s stone. Also known as liquid gold, universal medicine
It is the Middle Ages Magic was on the rise and with it brought an attack on authority and most of all Church. As a result the Church had singled out Occultists as they believed they could have direct access to god. They removed all the Church had taught, its hierarchy the use of Priests, the building of worship, this would sound good if it was that Christ was the Head and our priest and we can worship him at all times anywhere exchanging faith for religion but it wasn’t what it was is that Gnosticism had made a come back and what the occultist were teaching is that all you had to do to find god was look for the divine spark within echoes of
And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live For ever: Genesis 3 v 22
A date that will go down with 9/11 and 7/7 the number of the skull and bones, what this Verse shows is the Epitome of all the secret societies and Demons and fallen Angels are gunning for is for man to become gods through Knowledge.
And by the 14th Century, the occult movement had made moves with the Crusades in full swing the knights and others returning from war or Pilgrimage. Brought with them Eastern Esoteric Mysticism objects and scriptures would be found in Monastery homes etc and this rediscovery set the wheels in motion for the renaissance period a rebirth, Renewal, Rediscovery that affected culture, Art, Even exploration the way we thought right down to the architecture all planned. Do not be misled this was perspiration for the Enlightenment just like Hollywood is using sci-fi for conditioning for Aliens its all connected all from the New age that was put in place at this time by Fallen Angels John Dee was the main Influence but we will start will Alchemy.
Paracelsus was born in 1493 in Germany he trained in traditional Medicine and the flavour of the age Alchemy he then was forced out the inner circles of his schooling as he challenged the status quo. He threw himself into Astrology and was a sponge for any and all knowledge this extract tells a bit more about him.
As for his Education, he himself boasts that he li∣ved in most Universities of Europe; surely rather as a traveller than a student, and a vagrant then a traveller. Yea some will not allow him so much, and one who hath exactly measured the length of his life, though crowding his pretended travels very close, finds not room enough for them. But ‘tis too ridicu∣lous what a Scholar of his relates, that he lived ten years in Arabia to get learning, and conversed in Greece with the Athenian Philosophers. Whereas in that age Arabia the Happy was accursed with Bar∣barisme, and Athens grown a stranger to herself; both which places being then subjected to the Turks, the very ruins of all learning were ruined there. Thus we see how he better knew to act his part, then to lay his Scene, and had not Chronologie enough to tell the clock of time, when and where to place his lies to make them like truth.
As for his religion, it would as well pose himself as others to tell what it was. He boasted that shortly he would order Luther and the Pope, as well as he had done Galen and Hippocrates. He was never seen to pray and seldom came to Church. He was not one∣ly skilled in natural Magick (the utmost bounds whereof border on the suburbs of hell) but is charged to converse constantly with familiars. Guilty he was of all vices but wantonness; and I find an honest man his Compurgator, that he was not given to women; perchance he drank himself into wanton∣nesse and past it, quenching the fire of his lust by pi∣ling fuel too hard and fast upon it.
Boasting that he could make a man immortal, he himself died at forty-seven years in the City of Saltz∣burg. His Scholars say he was poisoned through the envy (that dark shadow ever waiting on a shining merit) and malice of his adversaries. However, his body should have been so fenced with antidotes, that the battery of no poison might make a breach there∣in; except we impute it more to his neglect then want of skill, and that rather his own security then his ene∣mies malice brought him to his grave. But it may be he was willing to die, counting a twelve months time enough to stay in one place, and forty-seven years long enough to live in one world. We may more ad∣mire that so beastly a drunkard lived so long, then that so skilful a man died so soon. In a word, He boasted of more than he could do, did more cures seemingly then really, more cures really then lawfully; of more parts than learning, of more fame then parts; a better Physician then a man, and a better Chirurgeon then Physician. Page 57 and 59 Chap.3 The Life of Paracelsus the holy state by Thomas Fuller.
What Paracelsus did was on his travels that spanned 10 years he gathered knowledge from far and wide mostly but not all of an occult nature, from Witches, Mid-wives, Barbers, Innkeepers and Village healers among others and gathered all the Information of things that worked. This was his masterpiece the culmination of his work as said he would stick with things that worked and rejected all that didn’t. He was known to of burned books and never read much at all and he rejected outworn theories. Pushing the boundaries that were accepted of the day.
He had a natural affinity with the Hermetic Neoplatonic and Pythagorean philosophies central to the renaissance. He also rejected the Magik theories of Agrippa and flamel in his Archidoxes of Magic.
It’s clear he often writes in alchemical languages and terms, but when he mentions ‘transmutation’ it is turning a weak soul into a healthy one. Or turning ingredients into medicine. Taking the Neoplatonic stance ousia the essence, substance being, following monism as to the gnostic Dualism two equal forces, good, evil, matter. An example of this is in Albert Pikes Morals and dogma when he talks of Lucifer being good and Adoni bad building on the yin and yang and the Gnostic demiurge we spoke of earlier.
Paracelsus was a Physician and botanist who studied Astrology, Neoplatonic, Alchemy, Hermeticism and above all else was heavily influenced by the Kabbala that brings me to the next part that he was also mixing with the Demonic and the fallen.
He spoke of the view of demons being fallen angels and they were not of this world. He insisted that some so-called demons are not Supernatural in any sense but merely Natural being mixtures of Human-Animal and Spirit. He says this in the book The Devils Doctor a fitting name for him as all aspects of the Demonic are of the Enemy. And his view that they are not all bad and just want union with man. And yes that they do and that’s because they don’t have bodies of their own he is right in saying some are animals and human and Spirit, as well as Nephilim, half human and half angelic they were also the Monsters of old remember the sons of God sinned against all flesh.
And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. Genesis 6 v 12
Extra-Biblical text’s cover this as well like Jubilees Jasher and Greek Mythology that up until not long ago was taught as true history and so it should as in the days of Noah the coming of the son of man will be. Matthew 24 v 37 for more on Hybrids Day’s Of Noah-Hybrids in the Bible.
Being an occultist he would have been sympathetic to the Demon cause especially with the greek influence of Good and Bad demons and that daimonion the greek word for demon, evil spirit, also means replete with knowledge and that is exactly what this man was all about. Like Soloman where did his knowledge lead him.
Paracelsus used to engrave the names of Angels on talismans to treat various diseases and for protection and he was also the creator of the angelic alphabet also known as The Alphabet of the Magi. It is believed that the creation of this alphabet was influenced by other magickal alphabets at the time with a touch of the Hebrew alphabet. Also influenced by Various Magickal alphabets from the older grimoires of the time. In turn from an old alphabet called the witch’s language that was used for cloaking, talisman inscriptions, magickal writing and spells. Paracelsus was sympathetic to witches and thought there magick was real, Not by their demonic pact but by congenitally acquired personality traits and the sheer force of their imaginations. You have to remember the times here, people were being tried for witchcraft and the editor of the Hermetic texts was trying to appeal to judges to put witches into the care of experts in medicine and theology. Built from my personal experience Demon worship and Witchcraft both are demonic as I was a practitioner of both until I cried out to my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ God in the Flesh.
You might be thinking why I have spent so much time on Paracelsus rather on the likes of Flamel. One reason is people think that he was not a Rosicrucian but he was in fact, more Rosicrucian than most. To this day Scholars cannot agree whether the founder of the Order, Christian Rosenkruetz was a real or fictional person was it just a story a Symbolic tale to draw on examples of the Ancient world.
The Monks name means ‘Christian of the rosy cross’ If Christian Rosenkruetz is a Parable of sorts of a monk who travelled the world acquiring knowledge. It can be seen as illustrative steps that an Alchemist walks and by definition that is what an alchemist does journeys along the path in the hope to create gold from base metal “the search for the philosophers stone and the Elixer of life” and in a spiritual way searching for the spark within to reach purity.
I find the true historical Paracelsus and his background of travelling all around Europe the Holy Land Arabia and Egypt learning from all. He returned with Medical Theories Magical Theories I think the coincidences are there to be seen.
PARACELSUS, in the eighth chapter of his “Treatise on Metals,” gave utterance to the following prognostication:–Quod utilius Deus patefieri sinet, quod autem majoris momenti est, vulgo adhuc latet usque ad Eliæ Artistæ adventum, quando is venerit. “God will permit a discovery of the highest importance to be made, it must be hidden till the advent of the artist Elias.” In the first chapter of the same work, he says:–Hoc item verum est nihil est absconditum quod non sit retegendum; ideo, post me veniet cujus magnale nundum vivit qui multa revelabit. “And it is true, there is nothing concealed which shall not be discovered; for which cause a marvellous being shall come after me, who as yet lives not, and who shall reveal many things.” These passages have been claimed as referring to the founder of the Rosicrucian order, THE PROPHECY OF PARACELSUS, AND THE UNIVERSAL REFORMATION OF THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD.
The renaissance gave rise to a new generation of occultists they sought to combine both science and religion with Magick. It’s only in this modern age that Magick has been thought of as a circus attraction, This was a dangerous move in a society ruled by Christianity.
John Dee was born in 1527 in Tower ward London, at the age of 15 his father sent him to Cambridge. Dee would throw caution to the wind and risk all to study the esoteric teaching of his day. He was the embodiment of the ideal enlightened being who had the spiritual understanding of his role and mission in life. It is no understatement to say he was gifted with superior intelligence.
John Dee followed in the footsteps of Paracelsus using experimentation to become a gifted Scientist and inventor-mathematician, cryptographer and pioneer in the field of navigation he also studied Optics, Astronomy, Nautical engineering, Scripture Law and Medicine.
But Every coin has two sides and John Dee was no Different he attended the University of Louvain in the Netherlands and he immersed himself in the Occult and deeply everything occult he could get his hands on Sorcery, Necromancy, Astrology this was not uncommon for those of high intelligence.
At 24 he was soon being noticed as one of the most learned men in Europe he was packing halls lecturing on Euclid;’s Elements. He held the position of her personal astrologer to Queen Elizebeth he was trying to make a distinction between Magic and science and the world around him. He became much more to the Queen. He was involved in political intrigue he was a trusted Ally to Queen Elizebeth. At the same time working hard all through Europe to help lower the power of the Church and to substitute it with protestant power in its stead. While under Dee’s guidance Queen Elizabeth officially legitimised Alchemy for dee’s hunt for the Philosophers stone to heal illness and make gold and that finding this stone would bring with it a mystical agent that would produce a higher level of consciousness in the Alchemist.
When bloody Mary died in November 1558 and Elizabeth took the throne she asked Dee to choose her Coronation date he selected 15th January 1559. Later that year the Inventor of the Telescope Leonard Digges died and passed wardenship to John Dee over his son Thomas. Over the next few years, John Dee travelled and met with Various people while in Hungary he met the Proto family of Love who were cultists.
He was recommended a three volume book Steganographia by Johannes Trithemius wrote in 1499 and to be blacklisted in 1609 and banned by 1900. This book was a book like no other it was high Magick and showed how to contact spirits over a great distance. A book of cryptology and steganography. John dee would be drawn to the Cryptology as he was a known spy for queen Elizebeth. He had a part in the birth of the British secret service and James bonds 007 originated with Dee that is how he signed his letters to the Queen.
This book was an Occultists Dream and was used as the Cipher manuscript for groups like the Golden Dawn and of course the beast himself Crowley. Also worth a mention is that Johannes Trithemius was mentor to both Agrippa and Paracelsus.
Soon after John Dee wrote the Monas Hieroglyphica a book on symbolic language. Although published in 1564 at age 37, he considered it valuable throughout his life. The Monas is a highly esoteric work. In it he claims himself in possession of the most secret mysteries. He wrote it in twelve days while apparently in a peak (mystical) state:
“[I am] the pen merely of [God] Whose Spirit, quickly writing these things through me, I wish and I hope to be.” He claims it will revolutionise astronomy, alchemy, mathematics, linguistics, mechanics, music, optics, magic, and adept ship.
He dedicates the book to Maximillian the 2nd who then became king of Hungary, Bohemia and the Holy Roman Empire. A year later John Dee returned from his travels he had amassed by this time close to 3,000 scrolls and 1,000 books surpassing oxford and Cambridge didn’t have a 1,000 between them.
Dee loved Divination he believed he could apply scientific methods to communicate with supernatural Beings this obsession of contacting the fallen Angels would take its toll and have disastrous consequences the Art of manipulating objects like Bones, Tea leafs, Tarot cards came back with the crusades from the Muslim East of the 14th Century and became the popular method for Fortune telling Dee Himself was found of the method of Skrying.
This Method is an Ancient technique using Glasses, Mirrors, Rivers, in other words, anything that had a reflection This was used to see not just into the Material but Spiritual also. I used a form of Skrying when worshipping Demons when young I never realised what it was it was to get me into a trance-like state. I also used Tarot cards and also a form of Automatic writing when writing poems, songs and spells it just flowed and I mean flowed I never read a book till I was saved nor did I have much of an Education. all this was Divination Even with the tarots I used my own interpretation and it was right all the time for past, present and future.
So a few years after reading Stegangraphia he began communicating with the Fallen he reported strange noises around his home and was plagued by dreams. The Angels were returning his calls we can say.
John hooked up with a Medium by the name of Barnabas Saul who claimed to see angels in a crystal ball. But Dee’s was not seeing any results and was neither convinced with Sauls work.
In 1582 Edward Kelly came on the scene Edward an odd man of 27 who had raw talent for seeing into the shadow World. He had in the past been convicted of Forgery and dabble in Necromancy among other things of an Occult nature much to the liking of Dee.
Edward Kelly would gaze into amethyst Crystals he would say what he saw with Dee recording the sessions on scrolls. Dee and Kelley held hundreds of séances mainly in England and Poland. In 1583 Kelley allegedly made contact with the Angel Uriel who prophesized the attempt of invasion of England by Spain and also the death of Mary Queen of Scots. These prophecy came to pass in 1587 and 1588.
During one of their sessions, Uriel claimed Enochian was the language spoken in the Garden of Eden and this language was found in the book of Enoch. This method would become known as Channelling Edward Kelly and Dee had brought throw a method that seemed new as it was not based on any known tradition.
They appeared to be speaking a new language and this Enochian language appears to have a coherent Vocabulary and syntax and didn’t seem the sort of thing that a young kelly who wasn’t known for his wisdom he had started at University but it didn’t last. He wasn’t particularly educated this wasn’t something that just was made up this was something that couldn’t be faked.
This was also the Birth of the New World Order as we know it the Fallen were coming through with their set up for the end times Dee was interested in asking the likes of Raphael for the whereabouts of buried treasure. As well as the new world order the Angels wanted something in return you see John Dee and Edward Kelly thought they were in control. However, they were getting used as in return for their knowledge and finance that they gained from their sessions the fallen angel’s price was blood. As a consequence Dee through a rite gave them want they wanted Blood is the life force right after john Dees death we had
- In continental Europe, a conflict between Protestants and Catholics in the 1600s known as the Thirty Years War took 10 million lives
- 40,000 Witches by the Inquisition
- Cromwell’s campaign over 1.5 million Catholics 1642–1651
An angel calling herself Madimi contacted Dee and Kelley with instructions that the two should swap wives. This disturbed Dee who felt that “devils” were impersonating angels and he was reluctant to listen Madimi it seems was rather persuasive and on May 22 the swap occurred. The event put a great strain on the relationship between Dee and Kelley and they parted ways.
They travelled around Europe to tell of there Discoveries and Methods of mediumship round about this time there was another crackdown on Heretics by the inquisition. As you can Imagine touring talking about conversations with Demons and Angels ensured him to come home to a Mob that destroyed his Library and instruments and all Paraphanalia that was irreplaceable.
A man who began as someone close to the queen had fallen out of favour, A man who was known as one of the greatest minds of his time. Went to his grave in 1608 penniless branded a sorcerer and will be remembered for his work with magic and Fallen angels above all else that furthered his Rosicrucian brother’s cause. Others built on his work like Crowley, Parsons, la Vay, in the field of consciousness art ceremonial magic to divination. The existence of the Hieroglyph links Dee to the Rosicrucians, but in what way remains obscure. The Hieroglyph appears on a page of the Rosicrucian Manifesto The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz beside the text of the invitation to the Royal Wedding given to Rosenkreutz who narrates the work. But John Dee was and is one of the founding fathers of the Rosicrucian movement of the renaissance.
And now we arrive at the man History has tried hard to keep his name from the Rosicrucians and Freemasons. Francis Bacon was Born on 22 January 1561 at york house near Strand in London he was educated at home due to poor health that would hang over him all his life. He received tuition from John Walsall, a graduate of Oxford with a strong leaning toward Puritanism and from then he went on to Trinity College then the University of Poitiers. When at Cambridge he met Queen Elisabeth who was impressed by his precocious intellect and was accustomed to calling him “The young lord keeper”
His studies brought him to the belief that the methods and results of science as then practised were erroneous. His reverence for Aristotle conflicted with his rejection of Aristotelian Philosophy which seemed to him barren, disputatious and wrong in its objectives.
Francis like all Alchemists went on his travels Visiting Blois, Poitiers, tours, Italy and Spain he studied language, statecraft, and civil law while performing routine diplomatic tasks.
Just before Bacon left for his travels he started to gather with a group of men at Gray’s Inn to discuss politics and philosophy and these men would have been similar in the sense that they were affiliated with the Rosicrucians and other societies. Historian Dame Frances Yates does not make the claim that Bacon was a Rosicrucian but presents evidence that he was nevertheless involved in some of the more closed intellectual movements of his day. She argues that Bacon’s movement for the advancement of learning was closely connected with the German Rosicrucian movement, while Bacon’s The New Atlantis portrays a land ruled by Rosicrucians. He apparently saw his own movement for the advancement of learning to be in conformity with Rosicrucian ideals.
In 1618 the right time of the outpouring of The Rosicrucian Manifestos Bacon Leased York house his old boyhood home. Over the next four years, Bacon would host banquets at York House that were attended by the leading men of the time, including poets, scholars, authors, scientists, lawyers, diplomats, and foreign dignitaries. Within the banquet hall, Francis gathered the greatest leaders in literature, art, law, education, and social reform. On 22 January 1621 in honour of Sir Francis Bacon’s sixtieth birthday, a select group of men assembled in the large banquet hall in York House without fanfare for what has been described as a Masonic banquet. This banquet was to pay tribute to Sir Francis Bacon. Only those of the Rosicrosse (Rosicrucians) and the Masons who were already aware of Bacon’s leadership role were invited.
From Bacons own writing we can get a feel for his Philosophies Bacon is famous in the history of science not because he made any new discoveries or new inventions he put all his emphasis on developing a general method or approach for arriving at scientific truths.
…above all, if a man could succeed, not in striking out some particular invention, however useful, but in kindling a light in nature a light which should in its very rising touch and illuminate all the border regions that confine upon the circle of our present knowledge; and so, spreading further and further should presently disclose and bring into sight all that is most hidden and secret in the world that man (I thought) would be the benefactor indeed of the human race the propagator of man’s empire over the universe, the champion of liberty, the conqueror and subduer of necessities.
Proemium, Of the Interpretation of Nature, 1603.
Still I candidly confess that the natural history which I now have, whether collected from books or from my own investigations, is neither sufficiently copious nor verified with sufficient accuracy to serve the purposes of legitimate interpretation. Accordingly, if there be anyone more apt and better prepared for mechanical pursuits, and sagacious in hunting out works by the mere dealing with experiment, let him by all means use his industry to gather from my history and tables many things by the way, and apply them to the production of works, which may serve as interest until the principal be forthcoming. But for myself, aiming as I do at greater things, I condemn all unseasonable and premature tarrying over such things as these, being (as I often say) like Atalanta’s balls. For I do not run off like a child after golden apples, but stake all on the victory of art over nature in the race. Nor do I make haste to mow down the moss or the corn in blade, but wait for the harvest in its due season.
Novum Organum, I, Aphorism 117.
[The reference to Atalanta’s balls is to a Greek myth. The beautiful Atalanta was warned by an oracle not to marry, so, being a fast runner she used to challenge suitors to a race and as she caught up with the suitor she stabbed him in the back. Eventually, a suitor called Hippomenes hit on the idea of throwing golden balls (or sometimes golden apples) down in her path. Fascinated by their beauty she stopped to pick them up and Hippomenes won the race and her hand in marriage.]
The sixth part of my work for which the rest are but the preparation will reveal the philosophy which is the product of that legitimate, chaste, and severe mode of enquiry which I have taught and prepared. But to perfect this last part is a thing both above my strength and beyond my expectation. What I have been able to do is to give it, as I hope, a not contemptible start. The destiny of the human race will supply the issue, and that issue will perhaps be such as men in the present state of their fortunes and their understandings cannot easily grasp or measure. For what is at stake is not merely a mental satisfaction but the very reality of men’s wellbeing, and all his power of action.
Plan of the Great Instauration, Novum Organum (1620).
Francis bacon was very private about the matters of his Alchemy, Alchemists were certainly secretive about their techniques and procedures, and often about their results vehemently maintained their trade secrets, in other words, but they were not usually secretive about the fact that they were alchemists. Contemporaries knew perfectly well who was an alchemist or claimed to be one, and who was not.
The thing is that Bacon although he developed an alchemical philosophy, and must, like Newton, have spent considerable amounts of time performing alchemical experiments. There is little you will find about his involvement in Alchemy but to be known as a great mind and a scientist in the circles he mixed in and for all the reason we have read so far he was one of the main players of his time this is why I chose to cover these three as if you read elsewhere on the Rosicrucian’s like Albertus Magnus, Roger Bacon, Paracelsus, Cagliostro, Nicholas Flamel, and Robert Fludd. all who are renowned alchemists who were also Rosicrucians or were closely associated with the Order and most had Freemason links as well.
But with Bacon, his links were never remarked upon by his contemporaries, for example, and not mentioned in early biographies nor for that matter in any of the more recent biographies of Bacon. So, here we have someone who was not only secretive about his alchemical procedures and results, but who was also secretive about the very fact that he was an alchemist but as said above his Contemporaries knew perfectly well who was and who wasn’t and remember Alchemy and the Rosicrucian went hand in hand.
With John Dee’s work with the Fallen bringing in a New word Order that was just a New Atlantis, this seen its birth with Bacon as America was that new Atlantis the founding fathers some argue freemasons others Christians I say yes and Rosicrucians.
I could talk on Bacon all day long there is just one other point I would like to make there is theory that Francis bacon is no other than William Shakespear and this brings me to Bacons and James the 6th or the 1st of U.K . Of course, this remained secret simply to avoid possible scandal if it was known that one of James’s chief ministers was dabbling in alchemy. And that the King James Bible was commissioned by a Freemason.
What you must know is Francis Bacon was A knights templar and Major occultist he was appointed Solicitor- General and Cheif Advisor to the British crown on June the 25th 1607. He conceived the idea of reactivating various secret societies and in 1580 at the young age of 19 found the secret Rosicross library society and the Lodge of the free and Accepted Speculative Masons no doubt birthed from his meeting at the Grays inn as he took up his residence in law at Gray’s Inn in 1579.
He is supposed to of Introduced the 33-degree system in Masonry, From the Original Templer nine Degrees, They in turn built on the Muslim sect Hashashins of Sufi Mystical influence that if I remember had four Degrees.
After the 54 translators well 47 others say 46 finished the translation of the Bible King James gave the Translation to Francis Bacon to Edit and this disturbed me greatly. As I fly the flag for the king James not an onlyist but I put this above all others. Bacon had this book for a full year, a full year enough time to litter the Bible with secret information that was not in the Original Text
Bacon was an ardent Student not only of the Bible but early manuscripts as well. It will come out at some point that he had a part in the structure of the Bible apart from the clearly Masonic drawing that made it into scripture. But he did infuse hidden symbols and wordplay one such is that there is a theory that Bacon and Shakespear are one in the same
|“Breeches” Bible||Authorised Version|
|(14) God is our hope and strength and helpe in troubles ready to be found.||(l2) God is our refuge and strength, a very present held in trouble.|
|(21) Therefore will not we feare though the earth be moved and though the mountains fall into the mids of the sea.||(22) Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.|
|(12) Through the waters thereof rage and be troubled, and the mountaines shake (at the surges of the same).||(12) Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake–(with the swelling thereof).|
|(7) (He maketh waves to cease onto the ends of the world: he breaketh the bow and cutteth the)–speareand burneth the chariot with fire.||(10) (He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth, he breaketh the bow and cutteth the)–speare in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.|

Psalm 46 can be accepted as evidence that Bacon marked it to show his involvement. The 46th word from the beginning is ‘shake’ and the 46th word from the end is ‘spear’. In previous translations of the Bible these words had been placed differently in relation to the beginning and ending of the Psalm, and ‘shake’ had earlier been written ‘shoke’. It is evident there was more than coincidence involved, and if this was not just coincidence it means that Bacon went to the trouble of arranging the text to identify his involvement with the rewriting of the KJAV. The ‘46’ connected to this establishes the certainty of the absence of coincidence. The ‘46’ seems to be a reference to the number of translators still alive when the KJAV was completed, and also to the fact that that Bacon’s ‘mask’ William Shakspere of Stratford on Avon was 46 years old at that time. No doubt, this detail was added to rule out the possibility that the anomaly was just coincidence.
Francis Bacon Did not “write the KJV”. Research indicates that the official KJV scholarship committee completed their work in 1610 and handed the manuscript to King James. The King then promptly gave that manuscript to Sir Francis Bacon, who possessed it for about one year, until 1611, when he handed the manuscript back to the King, who promptly sent it to his official printer. Bacon used this to plan how to coordinate the text with all these symbols — page after page after page!
Like the freemason Handshakes that are littered throughout the first section in the genealogies and the purpose of the Handshakes are
“The secret hand signs of the Illuminati are thought to work magic, to evoke supernatural beings, and of course, to communicate messages … The handshake, or grip, is a sign of unity,oneness of purpose and allegiance or devotion to a joint cause. It is considered a bond or seal of acknowledgement between Illuminist brethren. The Masonic authorities speak of a ‘mystic tie’ or spiritual union. Certainly, demon powers do congregate together and enjoy one another’s foul company.” (Texe Marrs, Codex Magica, p. 145)
Symbols are of great significance and in the Occult world when a symbol is created it starts to have power from the demonic realm. They are believed to be transfer points of great Supernatural energy. And it doesn’t matter how the symbol is applied Painting, Paper, floor or wall they are embodied and start to ooze with tremendous demonic power.
I’ll give an example when I was a youngster I used to play with a Pentagram round my mother’s neck when I was about 7-9 or thinking about it younger. I remember seeing it in her Jewellery box and having a connection with it. Forward 5 years the symbol was used for my Name I put it everywhere I spray painted it on the wall of a secondary school I attended and I had it on my Window facing the School. This was in the early 90s when people thought this was just a harmless star of David (Although that symbol is probably the most powerful) Back then it was Taboo to be involved into the Occult. Not realising the power of symbols like Disney for example 1000’s of Kids over years would have seen that symbol day in day out and Demons used this opportunity to open doors for many who gazed on this symbol burrowing into their subconscious..
The Rosicrucians who created these symbols really and truly believed that they were creating “centers of occult power” That would generate demonic power 24/7. What Bacon had done was he took the Bible filled it with occult symbols. That everytime someone gazed at them it would have an effect in the other world that had an effect in this. As the Symbols generated this Demonic power that was to open up Doors and push the agenda of the Rosicrucian’s Mystic Christianity.
Once again I don’t believe Francis Bacon re-wrote the whole Bible as a conservative 80% of the King James used the Tyndale alone some say as high as 90% and the Geneva and of course other Manuscripts . There is some speculation with the Rosicrucian Robert Fludd (1574-1637) Dee’s disciple along with Bacon were among the conclave of Scholars who created the king James Translation meaning they were part of the 47. But that hasn’t much backing that I’ve found.
The King James at first was rejected by the religious leaders of the day. Both Pilgrim and Puritan leaders immediately rejected the KJV, based upon the Satanic symbolism they instantly recognised. All Clergy in the U.K and America rebelled, refusing to take out their beloved Geneva Bibles and put in the new King James Bibles, filled with all these Satanic symbols. It wasn’t till 1650 The King James went back to the printing press when all the symbols were removed All coding was likewise removed now the King James was good to go as they say. You hear people saying it has been changed with 100,000s of words.
From 1611 until now, the King James Bible has undergone a grand total of 421-word changes, amounting to only five one-hundredths of a percent of the text. so we have the the Bible we all know and Love and after 100 years it took its place as the main text for more reading on the Bible What Is The Bible…?
The Holy Spirit prevented these Rosicrucians from tinkering with the text, He prevented Bacon and King James from triumphantly popularising a Rosicrucian Bible, and He preserved His integrity in the minds and hearts of true believers of that time. So If you hear people saying that the King James was rejected and we should also you have the truth and ammo to fight your corner.
Francis Bacon was no doubt one of the major faces of his time and made a lot of contributions to society but as we have seen he had an undercurrent of an occultic nature and a big one at that. He alone is instrumental in the Modern day Freemason structure in part responsible for the New Atlantis “The good ol U.S of A” and all along his Rosicrucian involvement (and Alchemy) a bit more hard to pin down. Bacon had gone into debt round about 1623 while secretly funding the publishing of materials for the Freemasons, Rosicrucians, “Spear-Shakers”, “Knights of the Helmet”. And from 1626 its said after he apparently faked his own Death he travelled through France, Germany, Poland Hungary and other areas while advancing the secret network of Freemasons and Rosicrucians that he was associated with. It is alleged that he continued to write under pseudonyms, as he had done before 1626. He is said to of continued to write under the pseudonym “Comte De Gabalis” and evidence in the German Archives say that he stayed with the family of Johannes Valentinus Andreae in Germany Basil Montagu the Biographer of Bacon states that
Of his funeral no account can be found, nor is there any trace of the site of the house where he died.
Some say that After he faked his own death on Easter Sunday, April 9, 1626 – doing so in Easter Sunday as a mark of symbolism. He then travelled extensively outside England, eventually attaining his physical Ascension to another plane on May 1, 1684, in a castle inTransylvaniaowned by the Rakocki family. Their belief is that Bacon took on the name”Saint Germain” on that date, May 1, 1684, and became a Fully fledged Ascended master the ultimate prize for an Alchemist.
ROSICRUCIANS AND FREEMASONS.
From 1614 a small Pamphlet named the “Fama Fraternitatis” was given wide circulation and written by Johann Valentine Andrea. Although we know this group was up in running this branch was to be birthed from the Knowledge of the hidden group some say there was no written address to contact them because the Birth of the “Rosicrucians” was from the many people who claimed to of been in contact with the Fraternity.
Many groups rose up claiming to be the originals but the Rosicrucian movement was breed in Germany although for purposes of export. The groups that turned up in England was a conception almost totally severed from its authentic political religious context. In spite of this it still rose high and had many an offshoot and became part of the 17th Century philosophical literary and spiritual life of the time.
If you were into science in the early 17th Century you knew about the Rosicrucian’s or thought you did…There is no other society that owes more to the Rosicrucian’s than the Freemasons.
