Zion vs the Beast IV: The Atlantean Leviathan

 Previously: Daniel's Little Horn

Have you ever had a dream within a dream, only to wake up to the realization that you’re still dreaming? Hearing a distance voice softly echoing, growing louder and louder until it’s screaming in your ear the words: wake up! The abyss we’re about to descend into is a rabbit hole within a rabbit hole, a circle within a concentric circle, a journey into the upside down. 

If you've read Part II and Part III of this series, you'll know that we have identified Scarlet/Mystery Babylon as English Freemasonry and the Beast as its creation: French Freemasonry. We don't know all the details of what this last-days Beast will look like, but scripture and history have given us many clues to look for as the time draws nearer for this leviathan to "rise up of the sea" as Saint John saw in vision. In this post, we will nail down the philosophical legend that matches perfectly with John's description of this allegorical Beast. But first, a background on how Freemasonry, and its mother, Mystery Babylon, have viewed this promised-land of America is necessary to give you the deep philosophical context behind their "secret plans" for this great land. 

The Secret Destiny of America

Manly P. Hall, one of the most famous 33rd Degree Freemasons that has ever lived, has written much on the esoteric teachings of the mystery schools. In my opinion, he is the Carroll Quigley of Freemasonry, an ideologue who truly believed that what the highest levels of Freemasonry espouse will bring about a "better" world. His writings are laden with the mystic myths and esoteric legends of myriads of ancient cultures and peoples.  And I must say, this man, who passed away in 1990, has contributed copiously to the exposure of the "mysteries" and the "secret doctrine" of what these insiders believe, the very "secret plans" of the ancient Gadiantons. Ironically, without his unwitting scholarship, we would not know as much about Lucifer's plan to enslave the world prior to Christ's return. Hall has written volumes of literature, but the books I will focus on in this post, are The Secret Destiny of America, published in 1944, and America's Assignment With Destiny, published in 1951. 

Drawing on the work of Spyros Cateras, who wrote a book called Christopher Columbus Was A Greek in 1937, Hall asserts that Christopher Columbus was not the humble Spaniard we've all been led to believe. His real name was Prince Nikolaos Ypsilantis, and he hailed from the Greek island of Chios. He sailed not from Italy or Spain, but from the Greek port of Mahon. He was heavily influenced by Plato and his writings about the lost empire of Atlantis, and in addition to looking for a better trade route to the Orient, he could've been inspired by other Greek mariners who "navigated the Atlantic ocean in ancient times." Cateras, author of the book mentioned above, believes that the Greeks discovered the Americas centuries before the Spaniards, and reveals that "the language of the ancient Mayas of the American continent contains many words of pure Greek belonging to the Homeric period." Hall surmises that Columbus already knew about the Americas through hidden Greek history, and hints that he was either a mystery school initiate or closely working with an agent (a mysterious man who counseled Columbus on his first voyage) who was. 

Hall heaps praise upon Columbus, as if he were some shining light, born out of the Renaissance, contributing to the "mental emancipation of man from the tyranny of ignorance, superstition, and fear" (notice those three words are how the mystery schools label the church, the state, and the mob, I wrote about that here). But Columbus was not the benign, good-intentioned explorer we were all taught about in school. The man was a downright tyrant, who allowed his men to plunder, murder, and rape the native inhabitants of the West Indies where they landed. Like other ambitious men, he was plagued by greed and the desire for power and authority. Adrian Larsen, on his blog To The Remnant, has written a fascinating article on this very subject. He destroys the paradigm that many LDS people have of Columbus; that he was the Gentile that Nephi saw the Spirit wrought upon to cross the many waters, a paradigm I used to believe in myself. The article is the first in a series of posts called Destruction, and is titled, A Man Among the Gentiles

It has been since the discovery of the Americas that both the Rosicrucians and the Templars began to be interested in the Americas for the new location of their Atlantean utopia. According to the different cultural legends of Atlantis, it was situated somewhere in the Atlantic ocean, west of the straights of Gibraltar, which the Greeks called the Pillars of Hercules. The pillars were the gateway, so to speak, to what was considered a better world; perfect in philosophy, science, morality, equality, and governance. In the Grecian dialogue known as the Critias, Plato tells the tale of the lost Atlantean continent, along with the details of its governmental structure and geopolitics. Plato's account is the most detailed we have, but the myths and legends of various cultures, both primitive and civilized, also tell a ubiquitous story of a great civilization destroyed by a flood. Some of these cultures tell stories of serpent-gods who, emerging out of the sea, dwelled with their ancestors for a time teaching and instructing "them in agriculture, architecture, medicine, science, language, religion, and statesmanship" (Secret Destiny, p. 63). One such culture was the ancient Mayan civilization, and the god who appeared to them was Quetzalcoatl. 

As Hall tells it, Quetzalcoatl was "a mysterious old man who came out of the sea riding on a raft of serpents." To him, the "Mayas owed their cultural superiority." He was said to have come from the east, an allusion to sun-worship, and "carried with him the symbol of the cross," an allusion to zodiacal astrology. His name has two meanings, the first, Quetzal means "the bird of Paradise," and coatl, means "serpent," and as Hall explains: "the Serpent veiled in plumes of the paradise-bird" (See, Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, p. 559). Quetzalcoatl is said to have dwelled with the Mayan people for some time as their "benevolent priest-king," and when he departed, he "called to his raft of serpents, and then floated away to the east, with the promise to return at a distant day to rule over his nation." 

Hall asserts that the Mayas were an advanced culture, "the highest civilization to be developed in the Americas," who formed, "the first great democratic State on a continent curiously set aside for the perfection of the dream of democracy." Hall's "dream of democracy" is ensconced in the Atlantean utopia of old, what he considers the perfect pattern of government. It is this utopia that Freemasonry wants to resurrect, philosophically raising it "out of the sea." It is this system of government that is the Satanic imitation of Zion, ruled by ten "benevolent" priest-kings, who will have total control over their subjects and geopolitical regions. According to Hall, the Mayas practiced a similar system of government, by electing priest-kings, which priesthood was "powerful," but "benevolent, given to learning, and a patron of the arts and sciences." Are you beginning to see the pattern of exalting men to the status of "benevolent" gods? This humanistic pattern is part and parcel of the Satanic imitation of men becoming gods through the intellect. I'll get into the government of Atlantis later as we match it up with the description of John's Beast. For now, let's return to Quetzalcoatl. 

There are many interesting parallels with the legend of Quetzalcoatl and Jesus. According to Hall, the "Feathered Snake" was "a kind of Messiah, who suffered, died, and arose again." Other legends of Quetzalcoatl depict him as a white-bearded god, who came anciently to the American continent as a resurrected instructing them in heavenly things. Some have made the connection that the myth of Quetzalcoatl came from the American Native's diluted accounts of Jesus visiting the Nephites, as told in the Book of Mormon. After all, it was prophesied that the Lamanites would dwindle in unbelief until the Gentiles were to take the Gospel to them. Hall also makes another point, which sounds an awful lot like the Book of Mormon teaching that prosperity is based upon the laws of Jesus Christ. Remember, the Nephites, and us, the Gentiles, are told in the Book of Mormon text that our prosperity and rights of obtaining the promised-land are directly related to our correct worship of the God of this land, Jesus Christ. Hall writes:
It is believed that the Mayas hold the world record for continued peace. They flourished as a great powerful nation for five hundred years without war with other tribes or internal strife. The high civilization attained by the Mayas was due primarily to the laws given them by Quetzalcoatl. So long as they obeyed these laws they continued to prosper. (Secret Destiny, p. 64, emphasis added)

It is not unreasonable to assume that this teaching could have made it's way to South and Central America centuries after Jesus visited the Nephites in Bountiful, which I believe was located somewhere in the Mid-western or Eastern United States (I'm a heartland model guy). Consider for instance, that Quetzalcoatl, according to ancient lore, was born of a virgin and was known as the "Divine Incarnation," and "Lord of the Winds." Hall, quoting Mendieta in his Ecclesiastical History, reveals that Quetzalcoatl was described:

...as a white man with a strong formation of body, broad forehead, large eyes, and a flowing beard. He wore a mitre on his head, and was dressed in a long white robe reaching to his feet, and covered with the design of red crosses. In his hand he held a sickle. His habits were ascetic; he never married, and was most chaste and pure in his life, and is said to have endured penance in a neighboring mountain, not for its effect upon himself, but as an example to others... He condemned sacrifices, except of fruit or flowers, and was known as the god of peace; for when addressed on the subject of war, he is reported to have stopped his ears with his fingers. (America's Assignment, p. 12)

Sounds like Mendieta is describing a distorted version of Jesus, except for the red crosses, a definite allusion to the Rosicruscians. Even more interesting, is Hall's quotation of Lord Kingsborough, who describes Quetzalcoatl as the "morning star":

The Messiah is shadowed in the Old Testament under many types; such as those of a lion, a lamb, a roe, the morning star, (or the planet Venus, otherwise called Lucifer), the sun, light, a rock, a stone, the vine, wine, bread, water life, the way, and he is there recognized as in the triple character of a king, priest, and prophet. It is very extraordinary that Quetzalcoatl, whom the Mexicans believed equally to have been a king, a prophet, and a pontiff, should also been named by them, Ceyacatl, or the morning star. (Ibid, pp. 19-20, emphasis added)

Morning stars are described by Job as those who sang together and shouted for joy when the foundations of the earth were laid. This appellation could be attributed to both Christ and Lucifer, as well as many others of God's children who have come to this earth. Lord Kingsborough's parenthetical assertion that the morning star is synonymous with the planet Venus, which is also known as Lucifer, is most interesting in light of Isaiah's indictment of Lucifer as a "son of the morning," who desires to exalt himself "above the stars of God." Could it be that the legend of Quetzalcoatl is just another chapter of the age-old plans of Lucifer to insert himself into the position of Messiah, a title he coveted before he fell from heaven? 

Regardless, the legend of Quetzalcoatl could very well have come from Christ's visit to the Nephites, originally at least, and subsequently corrupted into the serpent-bird myth that we have today. This fits Satan's pattern of taking a truth and changing it into a half-lie that benefits him. The serpent is, after all, a symbol that he wears proudly, an emblem of his pseudo-wisdom in tempting Adam and Eve to partake of the forbidden fruit while telling them that they would "be as the gods, knowing good from evil." Ironically, their fall brought about the very circumstances that allow us the opportunity to progress in eternity. It is only here in mortality, burdened by our individual circumstances and struggles, that we can offer up the sacrifice of all worldly things. Joseph taught in the Lectures on Faith that a religion that doesn't require the sacrifice of all things cannot save us, and is not a true religion. The mystery schools however, believe the opposite, that knowledge is what saves, and that "enlightened" el-ites (a word that means a group of gods) should rule over the ignorant, i.e., the profane. This teaching, all you will see, is subtly embedded into their Atlantean utopia. 

Hall goes on to applaud the socialistic system the Mayas lived under, although he admits that because of a lack of complete historical records, we aren't aware as to the exact details of the "legal codes" taught them by Quetzalcoatl. Nevertheless, he asserts that the Mayan records contain the following details:

The Mayan nation was a collective commonwealth living under an advanced form of socialized order. They possessed all goods in common, and shared equally in the benefits of their production. They possessed no money or monetary symbol of any kind; and it has been suggested that this lack of currency was in part responsible for their five hundred years of peace... Each gave a part of his goods to maintain the State, and this contribution was employed to build public buildings, parks, schools, and places of public sport. There seems to have been no poverty, and little if any crime. No buildings have been found which suggest prisons or other places of confinement. (Secret Destiny, p. 64, emphasis added)

Notice the two phrases I bolded and italicized above. The first sounds like a description of the Nephites in Bountiful who achieved Zion for a short time, who, had all things common among them.  However, they did not have the second one, a State. In the last-days Zion, there will not be a State; there will not be an abstraction ruling over the people. Christ alone will rule, as the King of kings. The way that you can know that Hall's utopia is Satanic is that it omits Christ (who king Benjamin said was the only Head under which freedom was possible), and it adds a State, the very Beast that John's vision is warning us about. Don't look at Hall's history of the Mayas as literal history, he cites no sources for his assumptions, but rather look at it as conjecture for his philosophical ideal of "perfect" government. Remember, Satan's plan was to rule us, God's plan was for us to rule ourselves. In 4 Nephi, the short description of the "heavenly gift" included the fact that the Nephites "dealt justly with one another." Keep in mind, the text does not say that the government dealt justly for them, this was a purely individual endeavor that allowed them to live in collective harmony. 

Hall's Secret Destiny for America stems from the Satanic imitation of a promised-land based upon worshipping the true God of this land, Jesus Christ. Satan has inserted himself into the picture as an imposter-god, clothed in feathers and snake skin. Hall explains in The Secret Teachings of All Ages, that "The Red 'Children of the Sun,'" were the ancient mystery adepts of the Americas. The title of Freemason comes from the Egyptian word, Phre-Massen, which means children of the sun. I wrote about that here. According to Hall, these "red" children of the sun, students of the mystery schools of ancient America, practiced the initiatory rites set forth in the Popol Vuh, a sacred Mayan text. Hall believes that this priestly class "once ruled both Americas," which is reminiscent of the Egyptian priestly class looked upon as a divine race. Remember the stated goal of Mystery Babylon is to control, usurp, and subjugate both church and state. Here Hall is glorifying in this philosophy as if it is some kind of spiritual sacrament. He further explains where the name America came from, and I'm guessing most of you have never heard this before:

These Children of the Sun adore the Plumed Serpent, who is the messenger of the Sun. He was the God Quetzalcoatl in Mexico, Gucumatz in Quiche; and in Peru he was called Amaru. From the latter name comes our word America. Amaruca is, literally translated, "Land of the Plumed Serpent." The priests of this God of Peace, from their chief centre in the Cordilleras, once ruled both Americas. All the Red men who have remained true to the ancient religion are still under their sway. One of their strong centres was in Guatemala, and of their Order was the author of the book called Popol Vuh. In the Quiche tongue Gucumatz is the exact equivalent of Quetzalcoatl in the Nahuatl language; queztal, the bird of Paradise; coatl, serpent -- "the serpent veiled in plumes of the paradise-bird!" (Secret Teachings, p. 559, emphasis added)

Next time you're singing the patriotic song, America the Beautiful, as yourself if your singing is a tribute to this beautiful land, or to the serpent it was named after, a serpent that represents Lucifer himself. As I always say, nothing is ever as it seems. Hall's point about these priests ruling from the Cordilleras is interesting to say the least. Cordilleras is a borrowed Spanish word for mountain range, and remember that it was the Gadiantons who also had their headquarters in the mountains. As you recall, Lachoneus, the righteous Nephite governor, gathered his people together with provisions to defend themselves against a contingent of robbers, who descended upon them from the mountains:

And it came to pass that in the latter end of the eighteenth year, those armies of the robbers had prepared for battle, and began to come down, and to sally forth from the hills, and out of the mountains, and the wilderness, and their strong holds, and their secret places... (3 Nephi 2:7, RE)

The Gadianton/mountain connection gets more interesting when you consider that Isaiah equates mountains and hills with nations. Is ruling from a high/secret place in the mountains symbolic of these priestly classes having control over the nations? Recall from my last post that John saw Scarlet sitting on seven mountains, or nations, controlled by secret societies stemming back to the Round Table groups. Consider in our modern lexicon the term Deep State, used by many conservatives, libertarians, and conspiracy researchers today. The word deep, in this context, implies that you have to penetrate into many layers of political and social strata to find out who is actually ruling you. Mountains have many layers of strata, rock, and earth, and are nearly impossible for man to penetrate with his puny implements for digging and drilling. The deep interior of a massive mountain will never see the light of day unless God moves or destroys it through earthquakes or other natural disasters. Is God trying to tell us something by using mountain imagery to describe the secret works of Gadiantons, who are seeking deep to hide their councils from the Lord? Does this also correlate with the Deep State today, which is ruled by similar Gadiantons subscribing to the age-old secret plans the Devil revealed to Cain? Is it also a coincidence that the Deep State has been constructing huge underground military bases miles below the earth? These are interesting connections to ponder, and I believe that there is nothing that God included in the Book of Mormon text that should not be applied to us today. 

Getting back to Manly P. Hall, he next turns his attention to the North American Indians of the Great Lakes region. It was these Indians, under the leadership of Hiawatha, the chief of the Iroquois, that made a pact of peace between five warring tribes: the Seneca, Cayuga. Onondaga, Oneida, and Mohawk. This was called "The League of the Five Nations," and according to Hall, was the inspiration behind Woodrow Wilson's pipe dream of the failed League of Nations created after World War I. Hall explains that another Indian leader, Great Rabbit, a mythological legend to the Algonquins, was instrumental in upping the number of nations in the league to seven, an interesting correlation with Scarlet's seven mountains. Hall uses the pretext of the Native American's League for a typology of America's destiny to become a world commonwealth. He explains that in addition to being a defensive body, the League of seven nations was "also useful in settling inter-tribal disputes." As I will explain later, this is the same pattern of government that existed in ancient Atlantis, in its league of ten kings. Hall claims that Nostradamus prophesied of this very form of government existing in the future on world scale, with America at the helm:

It is in the larger picture of the world's future that Nostradamus indicates the coming of the great league, or assembly of world powers. This league is to be the only human hope of peace, the only solution to a competition between nations. The formation of this league begins the new life of the human race, will allow the human being at last to emerge into the estate for which he was fashioned.

Barbarism ends with the beginning of world civilization. To be civilized, according to Cicero, is to reach that state of personal and collective behavior in which men can live together harmoniously and constructively, united for the betterment of all. By this definition, we have never been civilized. We have existed in a state of cultured savagery. 

The promise of Nostradamus is especially meaningful in these difficult years; for he assures us that the commonwealth of nations is to become a reality. (Secret Destiny, p. 51) 

Think of the double-speak Hall is using here. He subtly equates the term barbarism with individualism. To him, only a world commonwealth of nations can bring about civilization. Ironically, it is governments that engage in barbarism, after all, they are the perpetrators of war, plunder, and slavery. For the most part, it is individuals who seek peace and civilization, while the State, i.e., the Beast, is the organization guilty of foisting "cultured savagery" upon its subjects. Uniting all the nations of the world under such a commonwealth, will only make the Beast bigger, stronger, and more hungry for power. Hall's Beast, the future one-world government called the New World Order, will be organized out of the raw philosophical materials that comprised the Atlantean empire, and whether that ancient empire  existed or not doesn't matter, because they (the Luciferian globalists) are working tirelessly to bring this utopia about. 

Speaking of utopia, in America's Secret Destiny Hall touches on a few famous authors who wrote about ideal societies such as Thomas More, Tommaso Campenella, Trajano Boccalini, and Johann Valentin Andreae, but settles on one man he calls "the master of all fable." This man is the infamous Sir Francis Bacon, the Rosicrucian initiate who, according to Hall, was the main editor of the first King James Bible, which, "bears more Mason's marks than the Cathedral of Strasbourg." Bacon wrote a utopia that is painfully dry and abstract to the profane reader (I know because I read it in preparation for this post, it was the longest 38 pages I've ever read), but to the adept, it is saturated with esoteric mysticism. Mysticism cloaked in the profundities of the rites of an ancient empire, one that Bacon (and his secret society) worked tirelessly to resurrect during his lifetime. 

The New Atlantis and The Great Plan

Bacon's utopia, The New Atlantis, was published posthumously in 1627, by Bacon's chaplain and closest confidant, William Rawley, who writes this in the introduction:
This fable My Lord devised, to the end that he might exhibit therein, a model or description of a college, instituted for the interpreting of nature, and the producing of great and marvelous works, for the benefit of man; under the name Solomon's house, or the college of the six days work. (Secret Destiny, p. 57-58)

According to Hall, the college of the six days work, is: 

...a thinly veiled reference to the perfection of nature through art. The six days are the days of creation by which the natural world was brought into existence, according to the account given in Genesis. As God created the Universe in six symbolic days, so man by art - that is, philosophy - must create the condition of his own perfection by means of six philosophical steps. (Ibid, p. 58) 

In other words, the six days college is an allusion to the mystery schools, who represent the illumined classes, those who will perfect man in "six philosophical steps." Recall that John tells us that six is the number of a man, and has deep philosophical meaning, in addition to being one-third of the number that makes up the Beast. Notice the Luciferian concept in Hall's description that man "must create the condition of his own perfection," i.e., through intellect. Here we have the model for the blatant anti-Christian doctrine of the ancient "secret schools," as Hall calls them. 

Bacon's novel begins with a group of mariners sailing from Peru to China who are catapulted off course due to tumultuous winds. Facing certain death and starvation, they pray to God for deliverance, who leads them to "the fair harbor of a great city in an unknown land." There, in the hands of the hospitable natives, they are nursed back to health and accepted as guests into the beautiful city with all its splendor and achievements in the arts and sciences. According the Hall, the ship they sailed in on represents science, "sailing forth from the limits and boundaries of the old world into the unknown sea of Universal learning." The name of the strange new land was Bensalem, meaning, the Son of Peace, an imitation of the New Jerusalem. The city traded with the entire world in rich merchandise, including "gold, silver, jewels, silks, spices," and other commodities. Hall asserts that this merchandise represents the "Light of Truth," and that the nation, called Atlantis, was "declared to the same as America." 

Those who comprised the government were benevolent priest-kings, who made up the college of Solomon's house, and included among them were "ambassadors, agents, and representatives among all the nations of the world..." After the sailors are fed and brought back to health, one of them is allowed to visit with one of the Fathers of Solomon's house, and the remainder of the insipid novel is a lecture describing the civilization's advancements in arts, science, technology, medicine, and philosophy (which is a replacement for religion).  

The Father reveals that "the end of our foundation is the knowledge of causes, and secret motions of things; and the enlarging of the bounds of human empire, to the effecting of all things possible." In other words, the search for enlightenment. The Father relates to the man the vast array of "laboratories, observatories, mines and hospitals, and the various engines and inventions by which the elements could be controlled and the secrets of Nature discovered." They had gardens for studying plants, parks for studying animals, medicines for every illness, and they conducted experiments on the senses of man, to discover what stimuli contributed to human enjoyment (music, flavors, sounds, etc.) as well as what deceived them ("the methods by which men could be deceived"; sounds suspiciously like Huxley's Brave New World). Interestingly, the experiments on plants and animals led them to create new hybrid species, eerily reminiscent of the myths and legends of chimeras created before the flood, as well as our modern day GMO experiments on crops. 

According to Hall, every part of the novel is steeped in esoteric meaning, and to him it was a travesty that Bacon was not able to publish the second part, which would have described the actual laws of the commonwealth, based upon Plato's description of Atlantis. Although, Hall is sure that it was written before Bacon's death and kept hidden by the mystery schools, and still exists somewhere today. Hall asserts that Bacon's dream was to bring the six-days college, i.e., Freemasonry, to "America, an area set aside by Nature for the perfection of philosophy and the sciences." If you dig deep into the philosophical idealism of the novel, you will find a subtle resonance with communism and socialism. In the utopia there is no crime, no poverty, and "all men were employed according to their tastes and ability [to each according to his need, from each according to his ability], and each contributed in his own way to the sum of useful knowledge." But as George Orwell once wrote in his classic novel, Animal Farm, "some animals are more equal than others," and some men in the New Atlantis are more qualified to rule than most others. 

Bacon was obsessed with the idea that America was destined to be the New Atlantis, and formed a secret society to that end, clandestinely known as the Order of the Quest. After the Spanish Conquistadores had decimated the Americas with their plundering, pillaging, killing, and torturing under the aegis of a "holy inquisition," the French, Dutch and English began colonization programs on the Eastern seaboard. Hall describes Bacon's role as thus:

Bacon quickly realized that here in the new world was the proper environment for the accomplishment of his great dream, the establishment of the philosophic empire. It must be remembered that Bacon did not play a lone hand; he was the head of a secret society including in its membership the most brilliant intellectuals of his day. All these men were bound together by a common oath to labor in the cause of a world democracy. Bacon's society of the unknown philosophers including men of high rank and broad influence. Together with Bacon, they devised a colonization scheme. (Secret Destiny, p. 68)

Hall reveals that through these "secret channels," word was spread that the "Western Hemisphere was the promised land of the future." He actually used the term promised land. And even more blatantly blasphemous, they referred to this scheme as the Great Plan, which began as early as Jamestown:

After the Jamestown settlement gained some semblance of order and permanence, descendents [sic] of those men who formed the original Baconian Society left England and settled in the colony. It was through them that the Great Plan began to operate in America. There were most fortuitous marriages between the families of the original custodians of the philosophical legacy. From the minglings of the bloods of the Bacons, the Wottons, the Donnes, the Herberts, and the Mores, the Virginia colony derived many of its prominent citizens. Lord Bacon guided the project and probably outlined the programs to be followed after his death. (America's Assignment, p. 73, emphasis added)

Promised land? Great Plan of the eternal God? Sound familiar? I think we have a copy-cat on our hands here. Freemasonry, according to Reverend M.F. Carey, was introduced the the colonies as early as 1606. It is well-documented in the book, The Temple and the Lodge, that there were Freemasons on both sides of the Revolutionary War, especially in military orders that existed since the French and Indian War of the 1750s. Many of the famous generals and commanders, Howe, Clinton, and Cornwallis included, were reluctant to engage in the aggressive warfare that was commonplace in other parts of the world under British dominance or assault. The Colonialists were, after all, English brothers, and those in secret societies on opposites sides of the war were forced to engage in fratricide. The authors of the book highlight this phenomenon as a major contributing factor to the Colonial victory. The British had superior firepower, more funding, and more field experience than the fledging Colonial armies, there was definitely more at play here than pure military tactics, strategy and maneuvers. Baigent and Leigh (authors of the Temple and the Lodge) write:

In fact, Britain did not lose the war in North America for military reasons at all. The war was lost because of other, entirely different factors. It was a deeply unpopular war, much as the war fought in Vietnam by the United States two centuries later was to be. It was unpopular with the British public, with most of the British government, with virtually all the British personnel directly involved - soldiers, officers, and commanders. Clinton and Cornwallis fought under duress, and with extreme reluctance. Howe was even more adamant, repeatedly expressing his anger, his unhappiness and his frustration about the command with which he had been saddled. His brother, Admiral Howe, felt the same way. The colonists, he declared, were the "most oppressed and distressed people on earth." (The Temple and the Lodge, p. 325)

In addition to the Masonic infiltration of the military, most of the founding generation involved in the Declaration of Independence and subsequent Constitutional Convention were also Masons. Hall explains that Benjamin Franklin was so highly respected in lodges throughout England, France, and the Colonies, that although, "he did not make laws... his words became law." Franklin rubbed shoulders with Voltaire and Lafayette, both members of the French Lodge of Nine Sisters, and in America he began the Philosophical Society of Philadelphia, and had become the Provincial Grand Master of Pennsylvania in 1734. George Washington was also a Freemason, declaring in 1791, that "I shall always be glad to advance the interests of this Society and be considered by them a deserving brother" (although he later lost interest in the group, and his involvement has been greatly exaggerated). Other founding Masons were Robert Morris, Paul Revere, Peyton Randolph (first presider over the Continental Congress), General Joseph Warren (who fell at Bunker Hill), General Nathaniel Green, Major General Henry Knox, and Thomas Jefferson. Hall writes that:

Of the fifty-six signers of the Declaration of Independence, nearly fifty were Masons. Only one is known with certainty not have been a member of the Order... All but two of Washington's Brigadier Generals were Masons, as was Ethan Allen of Green Mountain-boy fame. Of the fifty-five members of the Constitutional Convention, all but five were Masons. (America's Assignment, pp. 96-97)

Now, I am not trying to say that just because most of these men were Masons they were evil or knew about Bacon's Great Plan for America. Most of the rank and file Freemasons have no idea what is transpiring at the top of the fraternal pyramid. Despite the influence of secret societies, Nephi asserts that many of the Gentiles fighting for independence were humble and merely seeking for religious freedom. Nephi saw that God was with them, and helped them prevail over their Mother Gentiles. Like I said before, God has such infinite foreknowledge that He knows the intentions of good and bad men, and can use both to further His purposes. The promised land here in America is in an all-out tug-of-war between God's intention to create Zion, and Satan's intention to create the Beast system. One thing about wheat and tares is that they grow together on the same field, and in America that field is the philosophical soil that contains the embryos for both liberty and tyranny, and in a day coming very soon, both will develop into their respective fetuses. 

The Old Atlantis: Plato's "Philosophic Democracy" 

William T. Still, in his 1990 book, New World Order, further elucidates on the Great Plan, which according to Manly P. Hall, originated in the Atlantean Mystery Schools:
Where did this ancient order originate? Hall claimed that it originated in the legendary Atlantis. He claimed that the Atlanteans devised a plan - a "Great Plan" - which would guide world events for millennia to come, and that it included a mysterious blueprint for what would later become America. Hall said that ancient Egyptian secret societies inherited this Great Plan and were well aware of the existence of the land mass in the Western Hemisphere which we now call America, long before it was "discovered" by Columbus. (New World Order, p. 36) 

Hall wrote in The Secret Destiny of America that the Mystery Schools have always maintained a plan for the establishment of a "world democracy" based upon the Atlantean empire. He asserted that this "bold resolution was... that this western continent [America] should become the site of the philosophic empire." In America's Assignment With Destiny, Hall explains that the Great Plan was being brought to fruition by the "initiated" few, who were gently guiding the ignorant many:

The Great Plan reached the Western Hemisphere through a series of incidents. Many early explores and colonizers are known to have been associated with Secret Societies. There is no historical way of determining the secret spiritual convictions of so-called conquistadors, adventurers, and founders of plantations. It is a well-established fact that arts, sciences, philosophies, and political convictions accompany less valuable merchandise along trade routes and caravan trails. Some of the colonizers were probably unaware of the parts they were playing, and the settlements which they founded remained for generations without the strength of security to advance ideological programs. The work, then as always, was in the hands and keeping of a few initiated leaders. They were responsible for the results, and they built slowly and wisely, thinking not of their own days or of their own reputation, but of the future in which the Great Plan would be fulfilled. (p. 58-59, emphasis added)

So what is the big deal about ancient Atlantis? Why do the Mystery Schools want to resurrect this old "philosophical empire"?  The answer is because it incorporates every philosophy that these deleterious secret societies believe in. Namely, socialism, humanism, Luciferianism, communalism (communism), priestcraft, magic arts, sorcery, witchcraft, and the divine right of kings, kings who have ascended through illumination to become gods. The Great Plan, dear readers, is Satan's plan incarnate on the earth, the plan he presented that resulted in his expulsion from heaven. And just like the legend of ancient Atlantis, the New Atlantis will face a similar demise. As I explain the idiosyncrasies of the ancient commonwealth in what follows, remember that the prophet Daniel saw that the Kingdom that God will set up, i.e., Zion, would destroy all other kingdoms, and will be the only thing left standing. Take comfort in the fact that God will not allow the New World Order to exist for very long, but as Saint John's sobering testimony reveals, exist it will. 

Hall draws upon the writings of Plato that come from the dialogue called the Critias, which is said to have been derived from an earlier account from a Greek philosopher named Solon, the so-called father of Greek democracy. Hall adds his own undocumented conjecture that Solon was trained in the Mystery Schools of ancient Egypt, in the temple of Isis, where it has been rumored that Plato and Socrates also received their training. Hall may have been privy to an oral tradition that has not been written down, which is why his rendition of the Platonic account of Atlantis is laden with added philosophic commentary. As a 33rd degree Mason, Hall knows what he is talking about, and like I have said before, it does not matter if Atlantis existed or not, what matters is what the Mystery Schools believe about it. That is what is going to affect you and me. 

The following is a summary of what Hall writes in chapter 5 of The Secret Destiny of America, entitled, "The Ancient League of Nations":

Plato used the Atlantean legend to propagate his own ideas about what Hall described as "the proper form of human government." Atlantis was ruled by ten "benevolent" priest-kings who were given their authority and respective territories from their father Poseidon, the Greek god of the seas. They ruled over seven islands and three great continents. Originally, the legend began as the ten kings being five sets of twins birthed by a mortal woman, Poseidon's lover named Cleito. The first born of these semi-divine sons was named Atlas. The capital city of the seven islands and three continents was Atlantis, and in the center of it stood a temple of Poseidon. The laws of Atlantis were inscribed in a column standing close to a golden shrine of the sea god, and the ten kings took an oath to uphold these laws.

The kings were not to take up arms against each other, and were to consult each other in all matters concerning the "public good." No king had the power to execute one of his subjects without the consent of a majority of the other kings, and each was held accountable by the league for how he conducted the affairs of his own kingdom. Plato described this commonwealth as the "the government of the Golden Age," and Hall equates its laws with "the laws of heaven," and describes it as thus:

By the three great continents of Atlantis are to be understood, Europe, Asia, and Africa; and by the seven islands, all the lesser peoples of the earth. The league of the ten kings is the cooperative commonwealth of mankind, the natural and proper form of human government. The Atlantis, therefore, is the archetype or the pattern of right government, which existed in ancient days but was destroyed by the selfishness and ignorance of men...

The king was the father of his people, impersonal and unselfish, dedicated to the public good, a servant of both the gods and his fellow men. The king was descended of a divine race; that is, he belonged to the Order of the Illumined; for those who come to a state of wisdom then belong to the family of the heroes - perfected human beings... One who achieved this state was by virtue of his own action a superior man, and this superiority was the only aristocracy recognized by Natural Law. (Secret Destiny, p. 26) 

In a nutshell here is what Hall is saying: "right government" consists of being ruled by kings who descend from a divine race (bloodlines of the Illuminati?), who belong to the family of the heroes (Nephilim?), who are "perfected human beings," and are superior to the rest of society and recognized by "Nature" (the god Lucifer?) as our aristocratical rulers. These "perfected human beings" have achieved their state, not through the atonement of Christ (the prototype of the saved man), but through the intellect, or illumination. His reference to the "family of heroes" is interesting, as this word is derived from the Greek god Hercules and is synonymous with the Hebrew word Nephilim. In addition to meaning giants, it also means demi-god, or a semi-divine race of men. John Daniel, in Scarlet and the Beast, quotes Dr. Alfred Rehwinkel from his book, The Flood, published in 1952, who offers the following insight on the enigmatic concept of the Nephilim, or the men of great renown:

The Hebrew word [nephilim] means more that what we understand by the term "giant." It means those that fall upon others, brigands, thugs, tyrants. These nephilim were famous in that world. They had made a great name for themselves through their acts of violence, lawlessness, and corruption. There were known by all, and their statues were probably found in the antediluvian shrines of honor. 

There are nephilim, or giants, in the world today. They are the men who rule this world. They hold their councils in secret. The dispose of countries and millions of human beings as so many figures on a chessboard. They confiscate property that does not belong to them and condemn millions of innocent people to a horrible death of misery and starvation. They blot out whole cities of men, women, and children, with hell-born missiles of death, but they are applauded as great men and renowned, and their portraits and statues are given a place of honor in the halls of fame in our world today. (Scarlet, p. 549)

It will be these types of men who will rule in the New Atlantis, the same age-old pattern of men exercising control and dominion over others. As you may recall, in the Book of Mormon we learn about a particular leader of the Gadianton robbers named Giddianhi, who in an epistle to Lachoneus reveals his true self as an initiate of the Mystery Schools. Giddianhi comes right out and says he is the leader of the secret society of Gadianton, and implores Lachoneus and the Nephites to yield themselves up to him, which if they do they would become partners of all their substance (an allusion to communism). He also admonishes Lachoneus to become acquainted with their "secret works," which he knows "to be good." Giddianhi, like Manly P. Hall, actually believes that Luciferianism is good, and a true religion. He is an idealogue, who sincerely believes that his fraternal society of illumined brothers has a right to rule and govern the Nephites. He actually believes this, just as Hall believes that "perfect government" consists of rule by an elite and divine aristocracy (See 3 Nephi 2:2, RE)

Ancient Atlantis was the model for Plato's "philosophic democracy," which was devoid of competition, i.e., capitalism, had no poverty and very little crime, and was driven by the engine of cooperation. Hall explains that in this utopia "men followed the occupations which they preferred and lived a communal existence, together sharing the fruits of their labors." Hall asserts that this government of ten kings, "is a pattern of world government to insure the prosperity of all peoples and activate the preservation of peace." However, the true design of the "Great Plan" consists, just as Bill Cooper has opined, of a "one-world socialistic totalitarian state," which will crush human freedom and enslave the world to the Beast system. 

The scriptures reveal truth in an exercise of the ultimate reductio ad absurdum, which is a Latin phrase for taking an argument to its logical conclusion. For instance, whom Hall refers to as a "divine race of benevolent priest-kings," the Book of Mormon refers to as Gadianton robbers who plunder and murder for gain. What Plato calls a "philosophic democracy," Saint John calls a Beast. What Hall implies is the "proper form of human government," John says will kill anyone that doesn't worship its image. Whom Hall speaks of as the "guardians of the public good," John describes as merchants, sorcerers, deceivers, blasphemers, and fornicators, who are drunken with the blood of the saints. And ultimately, what Hall describes as the secret schools of the illumined, John and Nephi call out as Mystery Babylon, the Mother of Harlots, the whore of all the earth. Are you seeing the pattern? The conspirators fluff up their esoteric philosophy as some grandiose plan that will lead humanity down a path of enlightenment and societal euphoria, but God is telling you through His prophets that they are just robbers and murderers, vying for power and authority over the flesh, who worship a false god who is jealous of the real One. 

Hall ends his description of Atlantis with the tale of its destruction. The people began to be greedy, feasting their "covetous eyes upon the goods of others" (I thought they had all things in common?). The rulers were then infested by this same greed, and began to perpetuate a scheme to take over the entire world. The ten kings "decided to use their common power to subdue all the earth," resulting in "tyranny and oppression, and despotism and the exploitation of peoples." Zeus, seeing their intrigue, became so enraged that he called a counsel of the gods to determine what to do with the Atlanteans, and the rest is deluge history. Ironically, Hall opines that the "destruction of Atlantis can be interpreted politically as the breaking up of the ideal pattern of government." What Hall doesn't grasp, but Saint John does, is that granting that much control into the hands of only ten rulers will always inevitably result in the abuse of power, that almost all men have a disposition for. Fortunately, Nephi has told us what will happen to the New Atlantis, he says that the Great and Abominable Church will war among themselves, as the incessant and all-pervasive lust for power will lead the wicked to their own demise. 

With all that being said, we are now ready to get into the metaphors of John's Beast, and as you will see, they line up perfectly with Atlantean myth. 

John's Ten-Headed Leviathan

In Revelations 13:1 of the KJV, and 4:6 of the RE, John introduces us to the Beast:
And I saw another sign, in the likeness of the kingdoms of the earth, a beast, rise up out of the sea, and stood upon the sand of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of Blasphemy. (Revelations 4:6, RE)

The beast, who represents earthly kingdoms, or governments, will "rise up out of the sea."  What does John mean by this? Remember that Nephi said that the Mother of Harlots will sit upon many waters and have dominion over all the people of earth? In conjunction with Nephi, John explains, that the angel told him that the sea was imagery for masses of people (See Revelation 6:13, RE). This Beast will rise up from the midst of billions of people, meaning that it will be born of revolution. John also makes a hint to ancient Atlantis in this first line, because the Mystery Schools believe that the ancient empire will philosophically rise up out of the sea. In 1932, Edgar Cayce, the famous psychic from Kentucky, believed that Atlantis would literally rise up out of the sea, somewhere west of the Straits of Gibraltar, but Hall understood this to be a metaphor. In his book, The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, he surmises that Masonry is a derivative of the Atlantean Mystery School:

Masonry is a university, teaching the liberal arts and sciences of the soul to all who will attend to its words. It is a shadow of the great Atlantean Mystery School, which stood with all its splendor in the ancient City of the Golden Gates, where now the turbulent Atlantic rolls in unbroken sweep.

After quoting this passage in his book, Mr. Daniel makes the following commentary:

Hall suggests the antediluvian civilization was democratic, that Freemasonry planned over three centuries ago to recreate a universal democratic society that will philosophically "rise up out of the sea," and like Atlantis, join with ten kings to lead mankind in the pursuit of universal happiness. He says that the Christian Church has delayed the search for the "New Atlantis." And he alludes to the ancient Roman empire as the last attempt at resurrection of the Atlantean project and states another attempt would be made. (Scarlet, p. 561)

Because ancient Atlantis was supposedly a democracy, the New Atlantis will likewise be a democracy, but remember democracy is mob-rule, and not based upon principles or laws as is a Constitutional Christian Republic that Mosiah set up among the Nephites. A democratic form of government is easy for elites to manipulate, as is obvious in our current American democracy (that was supposed to be a Republic). The key point is that this new Atlantean government will be sold as a democracy, because we have been conditioned to believe that democracy is synonymous with self-government, but nothing is further from the truth. 

John then sees the Beast stand "upon the sand of the sea," which in my opinion (and I have nothing to back this up), is symbolic of the Beast bringing the law of the sea, or Maritime Admiralty Law, onto the land, replacing Constitutional Law, i.e., the law of the land. Of course, this has already been done in America, but I believe it will be done again when the Beast empire rises to power. 

Next is John's famous line that the Beast will have "seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns, ten crowns," which is a direct allusion to Atlantis. William T. Still explains the connection in his book, New World Order:

According to this account [the Critias], at its peak, some 10,000 years before the Greek civilization, Atlantis was ruled in complete harmony by a cooperative commonwealth of ten kings, known as the Atlantic League. Seven of these kings ruled over the seven islands that actually made up what was called the "continent of Atlantis." The other three kings of he Atlantean kingdom ruled over the other three known continents Europe, Asia, and Africa. (New World Order, p. 43)

The seven heads are the seven islands, and the ten horns with their ten crowns are the ten regions or districts and ten kings of Atlantis. Still then makes the following commentary, and keep in mind he is writing in 1990:

According to noted biblical scholar Charles Ryrie, the ten horns of the beast are the ten kings mentioned in Daniel 7:24, who will rule over ten nations. Ryrie interprets the Bible as saying that one of these kings will be different, more brutal than the others, and he shall destroy three of the other kings. The Bible says that this most brutal king, referred to as the Antichrist, will "defy the Most High God, and wear down the saints with persecution, and try to change all laws, morals, and customs. God's people will be helpless in his hands for three and a half years. (Ibid, p. 44)

The term "Antichrist" is found in the Bible but bereft of the upper case A. John uses the term in 1 John 2:18 (1 John 1:9, RE), but he seems to be speaking about a philosophy and a group more than just one single person. In my opinion, the king of Assyria described by Isaiah fits most with Daniel's description of the brutal king, who will break away from the "philosophic democracy" and exact his own will upon the world. Ironically, God will use him to destroy Mystery Babylon and the remnants of the Beast empire will war amongst themselves. Hall's utopia will implode from the inside, leaving only chaos in its wake. 

In my last post, I covered the other pertinent prophecies of John in regard to the first beast, I just wanted to show here that John's first few sentences line up perfectly with the supposed government of the fabled Atlantis. As far as the second beast goes, the one John describes in this verse, I have no commentary. This beast is the man that many Christians refer to as the Antichrist, but John never uses that term in the book of Revelations. He maintains that the beast and a false prophet will work together to deceive those who will take the mark of the beast, and both will remain in the lake of fire and brimstone until the end of the millennium. Jesus told his apostles in the book of Matthew (11:6, RE) that there would arise both false christs and false prophets, who would deceive the very elect by showing great signs and wonders. It definitely sounds like there will be more than "one" antichrist. 

In a post I did a while back called Offending the Little Ones, I quoted sections of D. Christian Markham's second volume of Two Churches Only, where he transcribed an interview from a person calling herself by the pseudonym Svali. She was interviewed by investigative journalist Greg Szymanski in March of 2000 in which she revealed unspeakable and disturbing things she was forced to go through and witness as a child growing up in an Illuminati bloodline. Just after witnessing the brutal sacrifice of a young child, she was forced to get on her knees and swear allegiance to "he who is to come," which sounds an awful lot like John's second beast. This is how she describes what these people believe:

They are not Satanic... they are Luciferian, which is different. The ultimate goal of their spiritual philosophy and their sense of discipline is that they believe that should you complete all of your training, you become a god. That is their actual end goal. They believe in achievement of Godhood - of Illuminist philosophy - through what they call enlightenment, or Illumination, which is how they got their name. 

They are international. In Europe there are twelve fathers who sit, who represent the different nations of Europe. They are very expectantly awaiting He Who Is To Come, and during that ceremony in the Vatican, on my knees I had to swear my allegiance to serve He Who Is To Come... (There Are Save Two Churches Only, Volume II, p. 231).

Let This Sink In For A Moment

Before I close this post there is something I want to drive home, deep into the recesses of your minds, where I hope it will stay. Everything that Satan, his Fallen Angels, the Mystery Schools, the Luciferians, the global elite, the theosophical philosophers like Manly P. Hall, and ancient and modern Gadiatons have been working for, IS THIS MOMENT IN HISTORY. The goal of world government has been on the docket for millennia... every thing the Deep State is involved in - its wars, its false flag events, its vaccine mandate programs, its social welfare programs, its draconian legislation, its spying and data selling, its transgender and transhumanist agendas, its environmental programs, its "free" trade agreements, its currency manipulation, its critical race theory, its "sustainable" 2030 agenda -  is all geared toward one-world government. Yes there are different groups vying for power, but the agenda is the same. It doesn't matter who wins out in the end, because as Nephi has told us, they will destroy each other. But before that happens, we are going to live through pure hell, many of us may not make it out alive. Some of us may have to choose between accepting the mark of the beast and death itself. Some of us may be the martyrs of Jesus that John saw in his vision, and some of us may be those who dwell safely in Zion awaiting the Lord's return. It really doesn't matter which fate befalls you, as long as your faith is rooted in Christ. He, who has treaded the wine-press alone, will also alone overcome the Beast and his ten kings

What you need to understand right now is that this conspiracy is real... Gadiantons are real. Luciferians are real. The Mystery Schools are real. The Church of the Devil is real. These aren't just idle words on the background of a blogger program... this isn't some thriller movie that keeps you on the edge of the couch at night but you completely forget about in the morning. It's real, and nothing, or no one, is going stop these sycophants from accomplishing their goals, except Christ Himself. They have coopted every major religion, almost every government of every nation, almost every Hollywood producer, almost every large corporation, almost every University, most of mainstream academia, the medical industry, the Big Tech industry, every government bureaucracy, and almost every politician. They are very close to controlling all of the world, and those who you think are your shepherds are assisting them. For those of you who still think that the LDS Church is being led by prophets of God, please watch these videos produced by Rebekah Griffin. The corporate Church is fulfilling the prophecy of Moroni, by literally building up the very secret combination that is vying to destroy the freedom of all nations. 

Here is part one, which got pulled down from YouTube:

And here is part two, just released:


As you study the prophecies of the ancient prophets that we have gone over in these last few posts, let the words of Moroni ring in your ears. Of all the voices of the Book of Mormon, it is his that speaks directly to us about this pernicious secret combination that will exist in our day. As we slumber and are drunken with the worldly pursuits of Babylon, it is his faint voice, whispering to us from the dust, imploring us to "awake" and arise, penetrating deep into the subconscious realm of dreaming within dreams. And as we begin to wake up, regaining line upon line of consciousness, awaking from one layer of dreams to another, his voice gets louder and louder, until it's screaming in our ears, and then our eyes begin to open, and the colossal leviathan appears before us, and we wonder how we didn't see it there before, hidden in plain sight. 

Here are Moroni's sobering words. I know you've heard them before, but read them again, and this time, let him wake you up to the fact that the LDS Church, one of those organizations that is building it up, is doing so to overthrow your God-given freedom:
Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you, that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation because of this secret combination which shall be among you; or woe be unto it because of the blood of them who have been slain. for they cry from the dust for vengeance upon it, and also upon those who build it up. 

For it cometh to pass that whoso buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries. And it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people, for it is built up by the Devil, who is the father of all lies, even that same liar who beguiled our first parents, yea, even that same liar who hath caused man to commit murder from the beginning, who hath hardened the hearts of men that they have murdered the prophets, and stone them, and cast them out from the beginning. 

Wherefore, I, Moroni, am commanded to write these things, that evil may be done away and that the time may come that Satan may have no power upon the hearts of the children of men, but that they may be persuaded to do good continually, and that they may come to the fountain of all righteousness and be saved. (Ether 3:18-19, RE, emphasis added)

I want to clear something up that you may be confused about. In the books I've been studying many of the authors indict the United States as the apocalyptic Beast. I can't speak to this, however, I believe that the Beast will be heavily influenced by the United States, and it will definitely be a major player in its development. But the claim that the U.S. is the current Beast is, in my opinion, premature at best. However, I believe that the ideological soil for the Beast's development will be cultivated in this land, which is part of the Great Plan of the Mystery Schools.

With that said, stay tuned for part V... I'll be leaving the concept of the Beast and moving onto Zion...

Zion vs the Beast III: Daniel's Little Horn


If you read Part II of this series, you'll have barely scratched the surface of the history of the war between English and French Freemasonry, but just that cursory knowledge is enough for Mr. Daniel's insights on the prophecies of John and Daniel to begin to make sense. By way of disclaimer, I must stress again that these scriptural interpretations are a combination of Mr. Daniel's and my own. And as always, I could be wrong, however, I feel impressed to share these things because I believe that studying history and philosophy can prepare us to understand prophecy as it begins to unfold. 

As I stated in Part II, both Nephi and Jesus have offered clues that have been recorded in the Book of Mormon text that will help us prepare for the last-days tribulation. Jesus said that Isaiah spoke of things that hath been and shall be, hinting that we should study history in order to anticipate future prophecy. And Nephi told us that the words of Isaiah will be of great worth to us in our day, "for in that day shall they understand them." Nephi uses the words of Isaiah as his testimony of the things he saw and was forbidden to write, because Isaiah saw the same things. He just recorded it in coded language that is hard to decipher, but I believe that it is supposed to be that way. It should take arduous effort and careful study, even "ponderous and solemn thoughts," to attempt to comprehend the things of God. If it were too easy, we would take it for granted, and it would become a source of pride for us. Jesus admonished us, through the Nephites, to "search the prophets, for many there be that testify of these things." Here is another clue: God revealed certain aspects of the future to each of the prophets, each containing certain pieces of the puzzle. Consequently, uncovering each puzzle piece requires familiarity with not only Jewish culture and history, but a history of all nations and peoples. The following admonition (actually a commandment) to the Saints in Joseph's day surely still applies to us:
Teach diligently and my grace shall attend you, that you may be instructed more perfectly in theory, in principle, in doctrine, in the law of the gospel, in all things that pertain unto the kingdom of God, that are expedient for you to understand, of things both in Heaven, and in the earth, and under the earth; things which have been, things which are, and things which must shortly come to pass, things which are at home, things which are abroad, the wars and perplexities of the nations, and a knowledge also of countries and kingdoms; that you may be prepared in all things when I shall send you again to magnify the calling whereunto I have called you and the mission with which I have commissioned you. (T&C 86:14, emphasis added)

Here again the Lord has given us clues to understanding prophecy: things which have been and must shortly come to pass, combined with, a knowledge of countries and kingdoms. Mr. Daniel, in his thoroughly researched book, Scarlet and the Beast, has precisely followed this admonition, even though he has probably never read the Doctrine and Covenants and believes Mormonism is just another branch of Freemasonry. He has taken a comprehensive history of Freemasonry and applied it to how its influence and revolutions have shaped nations, kingdoms, and countries into our modern global milieu. This revisionist view of history, when read in conjunction with Isaiah, Nephi, and other prophets of the Old Testament, makes perfect sense when applied to the metaphors describing John and Daniel's Beast. A beast, after all, is an animal, driven by pure instinct, with little ability to think or reason. A beast must be bridled to reign in its animalistic urges, otherwise it will wreak havoc upon all who are attempting to domesticate it.  

John tells us that the beast he saw was in the likeness of the kingdoms of the earth, a clue that equates the beast with unchecked, unbridled, undiluted, raw...  State power. What he saw was the natural passions of men who dream of using the abstractive State as a means to crush, control, enslave, kill, plunder, and make themselves gods among men. If one strips away the veneer of pietistic pomp, lavish regalia, feigned altruism, pretended philanthropy, and pseudo statesmanship of such men, one is left with nothing but their true selves and desires; an image of a hideous beast. A monster which no amount of power and authority can satiate, an emperor stripped of his clothes, basking in the naked hubris of his own self-delusions and vain ambitions. Such men God will not have to destroy, for they will destroy themselves, just as Nephi has predicted. They will be drunken with their own blood, being so consumed with power that they will kill anyone for just a chance to obtain a small amount of it. Their lust for authority is their addiction, and ironically, it will become their end, just as it was for the Jaredites and the Nephites. 

With that imagery in your mind, let's dive into what the prophets have said. Every word has meaning. Every stone unturned is hiding a clue. This will not be light reading. Open your mind, and ask for the Spirit to judge the truth of what I write. If I’m wrong I welcome correction. Let's begin.

Heads, Horns, Carpenters, and Waters

 The prophet Zechariah had the following vision:

Then lifted I up my eyes, and saw, and behold, four horns. And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem. And the Lord showed me four carpenters. Then said I, What do these come to do? And he spoke, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head, but these have come to frighten them, to cast out the horns of the gentiles, which lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it. (Zechariah 1:4, RE) 
According to Mr. Daniel, the "horns" may be referring to governmental or kingly power, especially of the Gentile nations. This imagery dates back to Nimrod, who was often depicted with bull horns, and some archaeologists believe that he actually wore a physical crown of them. Later, the Babylonian god Molech was depicted as the minotaur, or half man, half bull. In the book of Genesis, Nimrod is described as being a "mighty one in the earth," and he built a city and a tower in the land of Shinar, or Babylonia. Mr. Daniel elucidates that the city represented his political power, and the tower his religious power. He had control of both church and state, which, as you recall, is the stated goal of Mystery Babylon, the mother of harlots. In fact, Nimrod was the first (after the flood) to establish the Babylonian System, in which kings were considered divine and had total control over their subjects. Mr. Daniel explains that Zechariah's horns represent the kingdoms of Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome, as the scatterers of the Jews, and that the carpenters represent revolutions against those horns. In Hebrew the word carpenter is synonymous with mason, and Freemasons use the compass and the square as their symbols, both are tools used in carpentry. Although the horns represent ancient kingdoms, the carpenters may represent modern revolutions. As Mr. Daniel points out, Freemasonry has backed the English (1688), American (1776), French (1789), and Russian (1917) revolutions. Other translations of the Bible substitute the word "fray" for frighten in Zechariah 1:4 quoted above. Fray in Hebrew means, "to shudder with terror," which is interesting, because the French Revolution was called the Reign of Terror, and the Bolshevik Revolution was called the Red Terror. Each one of the revolutions listed above have contributed to emancipating the Jews, as Mr. Daniel explains:
We can trace the stages of this movement: France gave full emancipation to the Jews in 1791. Russia gave birth to the Zionist movement in the latter half of the 19th century. England gave Palestine to Zionists following World War I. And America guarantees Israel's survival today. (Scarlet and the Beast, p. 526) 

King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon was the first of the "horns" to subdue Judah, and Daniel was the captured Israelite prophet who found favor with this king. Nebuchadnezzar is another representation of the Babylonian System, as you recall he made an image out of gold and forced everyone to worship it, the only resisters being Daniel and his three friends. This is a typology of the future Beast system that John wrote about, and I think it no coincidence that Daniel's vision occurs shortly after the account of the fiery furnace. God is showing us the typology and the prophecy of what is to come, John and Daniel being two witnesses of the same thing. This typology is that at some future time the Beast will force all to worship his image or be killed, just as king Nebuchadnezzar did. 

While Zechariah saw four horns, Daniel saw four beasts coming out of the sea. Remember, this is imagery for kingdoms rising up over masses of people, represented by water. The vision is as follows:

And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. The first as like a lion and had eagle's wings. I beheld until the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it. And behold, another beast, a second like a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it, between the teeth of it. And they said thus unto it: Arise, devour much flesh. After this, I beheld and saw another, like a Leopard which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl. The beast had also four heads, and dominion was given to it. 

These beasts represents different empires, possibly the same empires seen by Zechariah: Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome. However, it is the next part of the vision that I want to focus on:

After this, I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible and exceedingly strong, and it had great iron teeth. It devoured, and broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it, and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots. And behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things. (Daniel 7:1, RE)

This fourth beast is similar to the beast that John describes, who will "rise up out of the sea," who was like a leopard, but had the feet of a bear, and the mouth of a lion. Notice that the leopard, bear, and lion, earthly empires described by Daniel, will be part of the last days beast as described by John, who was hinting at a one-world government. Notice also that both beasts had ten horns (more on that later). So who is the fourth beast described by Daniel? Some speculate it is Rome, which was the most powerful military empire that existed before the heydays of Britain and the United States. His imagery of great iron teeth, breaking in pieces, stamping the residue, and being diverse from all other beasts, fits perfectly with the Roman Empire. But who is Daniel's "little horn"? This is where it gets interesting. 

John describes the horns as having "ten crowns," signifying kingdoms. However, a "little horn" fits more with a rising kingdom, or a nation that has not yet become a kingdom. This little horn's beginning had something to do with plucking the roots of three other horns. This will fit perfectly with a particular nation you are all familiar with, but I won't give it away quite yet. Later in Daniel's vision the Lord offered the interpretation of the vision:

These great beasts, which are four, are four kings who shall arise out of the earth; but the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever. 

Daniel's attention then turns to the fourth beast:

Then I desired to know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceedingly dreadful, whose teeth were of iron and his nails of brass; which devoured, broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet; and of the ten horns that were his head, and of the other which came up and before whom three fell, even of that horn that had eyes and a mouth that spoke very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. 

What other nation could this fourth beast be but ancient Rome? Who was "diverse" from all others because it was a world empire. Truly, Rome "devoured, broke in pieces," and "stamped the residue" of many nations and peoples. Daniel then sees what this beast does both anciently and in the future:

I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them until the Ancient of Days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the Most High, and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. 

Ancient Rome prevailed against the saints, torturing, executing, enslaving, and scattering them, and then coopted them with the rising of Constantine and Catholicism. But, the Ancient of Days (Adam/Michael) has not come yet (he will return before the second coming of Christ), so Daniel is seeing the future when this same beast will persecute the saints once again. Not only will the beast prevail against the saints, he "shall devour the whole earth":

Thus he [the Lord] said: The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon the earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise. And another shall rise after them, and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.  

This beast, the fourth, who is ancient Rome, will rise again in the latter-days, and shall again be diverse from the rest, and shall be at the head of ten kings, and shall subdue three kings. Recall from Daniel 7:1 that the "little horn" is made up of three other horns, which means this new beast will be the maturation of the little horn, and cannot be ancient Rome. That kingdom is long gone, buried deep within the annals of history, with only dust remaining. So who is this new beast? Daniel gets a few more clues from the Lord:

And he [the beast] shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws. And they shall be given unto his hand until a time, and times, and the dividing of time. But the judgement shall sit and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. And the kingdom, and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom; and all dominions shall serve and obey him. Hitherto is the end of the matter. (Daniel 7:6-8, RE) 

This beast will "wear out the saints of the Most High," for "a time, and times, and the dividing of time," which could be referring to the seven years tribulation period. He will "think to change times and laws," which could be referring to some kind of reset, something folks have been talking a lot about recently. We still don't have enough information to name this beast, but there are more clues in the second chapter of Daniel, when he interprets king Nebuchadnezzar's dream. For those of us who grew up in the corporate Church this vision has been drilled into our minds as "proof" that the LDS Church is the kingdom of God, "cut out of the mountain, without hands," that will one day fill the whole earth. However, when the entire chapter (and the entire book of Daniel for that matter) is read in context, such an narrow interpretation of Daniel's vision becomes laughable. The kingdom of God is not a church, or some tax-exempt corporation (it cannot be a legal fiction), it is God's political kingdom that will be left standing after the Beast and the Whore destroy each other. It is the kingdom that Christ alone deserves to reign in as King of kings and Lord of lords. In the context of Daniel's vision, this will begin as the latter-day Zion, which will eventually fill all of North and South America, and from old Jerusalem will fill the other half of the earth. All who are allowed to dwell in this kingdom will be made free, and all partakers of the heavenly gift

Here is the dream that Nebuchadnezzar had. Try to forget everything you've been taught about it, try to cast those narrow traditions of the LDS Church out of your mind, as if you are reading it for the first time:

You, O king, saw and beheld a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before you, and the form thereof was terrible. This image's head was of find gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thigh of brass, his legs of iron, his feet, part of iron and part of clay. You saw until a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay and broke them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors, and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them. And the stone that smote the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.

Before we get into Daniel's interpretation, there are a few things to consider. The king beheld an image, meaning something that is an abstraction, something that is not real. Yet the image appeared to be made of gold, silver, brass, iron and clay. It appeared to be made of substance, but was, in point of fact, merely an empty reflection. In the first post I wrote on this blog, Gadianton's and the State, I made the argument that the State is nothing but an image. It is not real, it is an abstraction. The State is the image that those who control the government hide behind, as if it were some self-thinking, autonomous being, some collective beast that has a mind of its own. Yet, when taken to its logical conclusion, it is only a mask. A mask worn by those Gadianton's who use it for their own ends, namely, to murder and to plunder. But a stone, now that's real. It has substance. Yet, it is not made of anything shiny like gold, silver, or brass. It appears to be worthless, yet hidden beneath that pedestrian appearance is something tangible, something weighty, something that can easily crush an image by merely existing. 

But who is looking for an ordinary stone? Who will notice it when gold is glittering all around them? States appear to have powerful armies and navies, they appear to have stringent laws that curtail and control, they appear to have vast regions of land under their purview, they appear to be your overlords and task masters. But it's all just an image, none of it is real. God, who is in the stone, the plain and simple rock, wherein there is no beauty or desirability, is the overlooked King. The earth belongs to Him, and that stone that looks like billions of other stones, will rise up and morph into a mountain, a tangible edifice that one will be obliged to notice on account of its sheer size. This dream, my friends, is a metaphor for Zion, it will eventually become a mountain that will fill the whole earth, destroying other kingdoms only by the fact that it exists. Now that you have this imagery fresh in your mind, let's read Daniel's interpretation:

This is the dream, and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. You, O king, are a king of kings, for the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, strength, and glory. And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven has he given into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all. You are this head of gold. And after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to you, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron, forasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things, and as iron that breaks all these shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas you saw the feet and toes, part of the potters' clay and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided, but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly broken. And whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men, but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. 

The four kingdoms described by both Daniel and Zachariah, according to Biblical scholars that Mr. Daniel defers to, are Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome. Mr. Daniel subscribes to the idea that the dividing of the fourth kingdom refers to the separation of Rome into the Eastern and Western empires under Constantine, and that the "feet and toes" refers to its subsequent breaking apart. After Rome fell the seat of Mystery Babylon, or Satan's church, moved, eventually ending up in London. It was there in London Town, the only part of London that William the Conqueror couldn't conquer, that the maritime merchants imported their Lex Mercantoria system from ancient Rome, the infamous law of the sea, or Maritime Admiralty Law. I wrote about that in this post and that post. Daniel's imagery of iron and clay could signify the breaking up of the Roman Empire as Mr. Daniel opines, or it could have a deeper, more general meaning. Remember, prophecy is a mixture of the past and future, and as you will see in the next verse, part of this prophecy is about things that have not yet happened. 

Iron could be a metaphor for prostituted government, i.e., the unbridled power (brute force) of the State controlled by Gadiantons, and clay could be a metaphor for us, the subjects of the State. Scripture refers to our bodies as tabernacles of clay, which are moldable, formed by our Creator. Iron, however, is not so moldable, and requires intense heat to liquify, upwards of 2200 degrees Fahrenheit. I think that what Daniel is telling us is that iron and clay cannot mix without revolution, because revolution has always been associated with fire and heat. In Rock Waterman's latest blog post, he plugged the book Fire in the Minds of Men, which uses this same imagery in regard to historic revolutions. Daniel's interpretation of the king's dream could have multiple meanings: the breaking up of Rome, the moving of the headquarters of Mystery Babylon, the revolutions that French Freemasonry has orchestrated against English Freemasonry, and the incompatibility of enslaved humanity to coexist with totalitarian government; such a scenario eventually ends up in revolution.

Daniel could be hinting at one more concept: irony. The word irony is derived from the word iron, which, in addition to its application to a hard metal, also means "powerful, holy, vigorous, and strong." Perhaps what Daniel is saying is that it is ironic that the State is compared to iron, because the State is merely an image, it does not exist in the real world. The tangible iron that emanates from the State are leaders, armies, weapons, munitions, tanks, aircraft, buildings, etc., implements that we can see and feel the "iron" weight of. But the abstractive elements the State is associated with, such as power, grandiosity, and “higher” morality, are illusions. States can only hold onto these abstractive concepts if the people, i.e., the clay, believe they are inherent in the State by virtue of its existence. But once those beliefs are changed, i.e., revolution, the State is relegated to the idea it began as, and the cycle repeats. 

Here is the rest of Daniel's interpretation: 

And in the days of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed. And the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold, the great God has made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter. And the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure. (Daniel 2:6-7, RE) 

At this point Daniel's focus has gone to the future Zion, "the stone cut out of the mountain without hands," meaning that it will be God's work, not the work of men. Yet he says that Zion will come "in the days of these kings." How is that possible if the kingdoms he his talking about are of ancient date? This would have to mean that those ancient empires will return in some form or another in our day, but to get the rest of this story, we have to turn to Saint John. However, before we do so, there are a few more details to explore on the headquarters of Mystery Babylon, or English Freemasonry. 

Ground Zero and the Seven Kings

Ground zero for Mystery Babylon, according to Mr. Daniel, is "10 Duke Street, St. James's, London, England SWI - the 33rd degree Supreme Council Headquarters of English Freemasonry." He makes a pretty good case for this, and remember, he is writing in 1995:
As we have seen, English Freemasonry, the mother of all Freemasonry, claims her roots in ancient Babylon. With over 9,000 temple-lodges scattered throughout most nations of the world, (and with over 7,000 in Great Britain alone, including 1,700 in London) English Freemasonry is the largest harlot religion on earth today. Moreover, this modern Whore of Babylon has given birth to hundreds of modern secret societies, cults, think tanks, and a variety of political orders. (Scarlet, p. 534)

Drawing from Edith Miller’s book, Occult Theocrasy (1933), he lists many of the "political orders, think tanks, cults, and modern secret societies." I will list some of the most famous ones:

  • From England: Rosicrucians, Round Table Groups, Fabian Society, Rock and Roll music (beginning with the Beatles), Theosophical Society. 
  • From Germany: Illuminati, Thule Society.
  • From France: Scottish Rite, French Grand Lodge, Grand Orients, Jacobins, Communism, Socialism, League of Nations, EEC (European Economic Community), the United States of Europe.
  • From Italy: Mafia.
  • From Russia: Nihilists and Anarchists.
  • From America: Scottish Rite, York Rite, Shriners, Christian Science, Ku Klux Klan Lucis Mist, Church of Scientology, National Council of Churches, Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the United Nations, and the New Age Movement. (Ibid, p. 534)
In addition to London, I've suspected for some time that New York, specifically Wall Street, is a second home-base of Mystery Babylon. London and New York are, after all, the financial centers of the world. A while back I wrote a post analyzing D. Todd Christopherson's talk on Sustainable Societies, a term that comes from the UN's Agenda for Sustainable Development. The article, entitled, Is Zion a "Sustainable Society"?, is a rabbit hole that explores the occult origins of the United Nations (to which the LDS Church is now contributing copious financial donations), the headquarters of which are located in New York City. In fact, the former address for the Lucifer Publishing Company (changed to Lucis Trust or Lucis Mist), created by theosophists Alice Bailey and Helena Blavatsky, is 666 United Nations Plaza, New York City. It doesn't get any more blatant than that. Later, I'll get into the mystery school's concept of the "secret destiny of America," which is to them, "the land of the plumed serpent." Remember, God creates and Satan imitates, copy-catting even the concept of "promised-lands." In my opinion, New York City is just as much "ground zero" as London; this was made profoundly evident when, on 911, they deliberately brought down the Twin Towers, the esoteric representation of the Pillars of Hercules, signaling that the financial system of the world was about to change... an important step in preparing the world for the Beast system. 

In John's vision of Scarlet, he sees her riding on a political beast that has seven heads and ten horns. The angel showing the vision gives John this important key to understanding it:
And here is the mind which has wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits. (Revelation 6:12, RE)

Other Biblical prophets, specifically Isaiah, have used mountains and hills as representations of nations. Hills being smaller nation-states, and mountains being large empires, kingdoms, republics or democracies. Nephi saw Scarlet having "dominion over all the earth, among all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people." But John saw her sitting on only seven nations, which means that these seven nations must have preeminence over the rest of the earth. And since prophecy can be a mixture of past and future, the seven nations could represent historic and future world powers. Mr. Daniel defers to William Goetz, in his book, Apocalypse Next, who identifies the following six ancient empires that had major influence over Israel: Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome. 

Continuing with John's vision, he tells us that there are seven kings over the seven mountains, and the the seventh has not yet come:

And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition. (Revelation 6:12, RE)

The first five kings, ancient Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, and Greece are all fallen empires that now only speak to us from the dust. Number six, the one that "is," is old Rome, the empire that existed when John wrote Revelation. The seventh king, who only continues a "short space," is a nation that rises and falls quickly, and the eighth, is the one that was, and is not, being both number six and eight. If ancient Rome is number six, who is number eight? It would have to be a nation that is patterned after old Rome, a mini-Rome if you will. Could this mini-Rome, or "revived Rome," as Mr. Daniel calls it, be the same nation as Daniel's "little horn" that we read about earlier - the nation that is made up of the roots of three other horns? Before we reveal this 8th beast, who is part of the Beast of the apocalypse, there is a little more history to get into, history of some secret societies that emanated from England around the turn of the 20th century. 

But before we get into that history, can we identify the seventh king, the one who only continues a "short space"? Mr. Daniel speculates that this king could be Hitler and the mountain could be Nazi Germany. Hitler's Germany shares characteristics with the preceding five kingdoms in that they were civilizations based on pagan sun-worship and the occult. The swastika, as Mr. Daniel points out, "is an eastern occult symbol of the sun." Just like those ancient empires, who were controlled by the early Mystery religions, i.e., the ancient Mother of Harlots, Hitler's Germany was bolstered and financed by English Freemasonry, the modern Mother of Harlots. Hitler was overzealous to implement world government based on the Babylonian system, and as a result he fell in rapid succession. 

Seven Wills for Seven Mountains

The seven mountains that Scarlet sits on have been carefully subjugated by her clandestine secret societies. The group that is primarily responsible for Scarlet's modern mountains is none other than the Round Table Group, founded by Alfred Milner in 1909. The Round Table Group was the brainchild of Cecil Rhodes, the famous anglophile that wanted to put English Freemasonry (and the British Empire) back on the world map. Disgruntled with the loss of the American colonies a century before, and the subsequent weakening of the British Empire, Rhodes wanted to form a secret society with:
...but one object - the furtherance of the British Empire and the bringing of the whole uncivilized world under British rule, for the recovery of the United States, [and] for... making the Anglo-Saxon race but one Empire. (Quoted in Scarlet, p. 439)

Rhodes made his fortune early in his life, which was only 49 years long (1853-1902), in the business of diamond mining in South Africa. By the time he began college at Oxford he was already wealthy, and through loans from Lord Nathan Rothschild, Mayer's son, Rhodes bought up other diamond mines and quickly monopolized the trade in the purchase of DeBeer's mining company. Rhodes vast wealth was allocated in seven wills, which allowed his predecessors, including Alfred (Lord) Milnor and H.G. Wells, to create the Round Table groups and Rhodes Scholarship program. These groups were dedicated to the goals of English Freemasonry, and to the furtherance of the British Empire, which was spreading in South Africa and India. Because of Rhodes' wealth and preeminence in South Africa, he became the Prime Minister of Cape Colony, and was both revered and hated by the people there. The former country known as Rhodesia, was named after him, and to this day there are mixed feelings about his legacy. The 2006 movie Blood Diamond is based on the story of the DeBeers monopoly. 

The book that was recommended earlier, that was also plugged on Rock Waterman's latest blog post, Fire in the Minds of Men: Origins of Revolutionary Faith, was written by a Rhodes Scholar, James H. Billington. More than just a history of revolution, it is an attempt to expose French Freemasonry as the perpetrators of revolutions against English Freemasonry. Here are Billington's own words in describing this phenomenon:

So great, indeed, was the general impact of Freemasonry in the revolutionary era that some understanding of the Masonic milieu seems an essential starting point for any serious Inquiry into the occult roots of the revolutionary tradition. (Quoted in Ibid, p. 441)

Another highly influential Rhodes Scholar was Dr. Carroll Quigley, author of Tragedy and Hope and, The Anglo-American Establishment. It was this scholar that Bill Clinton, also a Rhodes Scholar, gave homage to in a speech at the Democratic convention in 1992. Quigley was a professor of history at Georgetown University for 35 years, and was taken in by the Anglo-American establishment and allowed to study its secret records. The books he authored exposing the conspiracy was not an exposition at all, but rather a recommendation of the group and its goals. He traces the history all the way back to the Round Table groups, which formed other think-tank offshoots such as the Royal Institute of International Affairs (London 1919), the Council on Foreign Relations (New York 1921), and the Institute of Pacific Relations (organized in 1925 by 12 countries encompassing the Pacific Rim). 

The people in these think-tanks weren't necessarily privy to the goals of the insiders at the top. G. Edward Griffin describes these groups as "circles within concentric circles" of conspiracy. Those who get accepted into the outer circles are usually idealists who buy into socialism, communism, Fabianism, or any other form of collectivism or Statism, and ignorantly do the bidding of the top echelon, who use these ideals to further their plan of aristocratic world government. Griffin gave a lecture in 2008 that he called The Quigley Formula, and I highly recommend watching it, as he brings the entire thing together concisely and succinctly: 


Saint John saw the last-days Beast as a tripartite animal, rising out of the sea, and empowered by the Devil himself:

And I saw another sign, in the likeness of the kingdoms of the earth, a beast, rise up out of the sea, and stood upon the sand of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his head the name of Blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion. And the Devil gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority... (Revelation 4:6, RE)

This animal imagery could be describing three regions of the world. John, living in the part of the world that he did, would've been familiar with leopards, bears, and lions. However, he said that the beast was like unto a leopard, which could signify other large predatory cats. One such cat with similar characteristics to leopards is the jaguar, which John would've never seen because they inhabit North and South America. To me, this means that the main body of the last-days Beast will be primarily American, while the bear could represent Asia, specifically Russia, and the lion Europe, specifically England. Perhaps George Orwell was more prophetic than he realized when he divided the world into three regional powers: Eastasia, Eurasia, and Oceania. John tells us that the Devil (meaning the church of the Devil) gave the Beast his power, seat, i.e., government, and authority. Mystery Babylon, or English Freemasonry, will give this Beast total authority over the world, but, as John describes later, the Beast will turn on the Whore and devour her:

And he [the angel] says unto me, The water which you saw, where the whore sits, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which you saw upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire; for God has put it into their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree and give their kingdom unto the beast until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth. (Revelation 6:13, RE)

Recall in Revelation 6:12 that the seven heads are seven mountains (nations), and the ten horns are ten kings, who:

 ...have received no kingdom as yet, but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. 

These ten kings will be subordinate to the Beast, and it makes sense to me that the world will be divided up into ten regions, created by the seven mountains. These regions, split between the tripartite Beast, will have a beehive mentality, they will have one mind with the Beast (this is very interesting language in light of the fact that Christ also wants those in Zion to have "one heart and one mind"; is this another Satanic substitute for Zion?). Going back to the animal imagery for just a moment, it is my opinion that the jaguar represents power and control, the bear represents appendages, such as foot soldiers (Asian or Russian), and the lion represents propaganda, as in the lying words of English Freemasonry (scheming from behind the scenes in secret societies) used to form this monstrous Beast. The seven mountains that will be the foundation of the ten kings, or ten regions, will come from seven nations that will the most influential prior to the rising of the beast. 

Mr. Daniel equates these seven mountains with the seven nations that made up the Trilateral Commission, formed in 1973 by David Rockefeller and other globalists. This political entity was another product of the Round Table groups, and divided the world in three cooperating regions: Japan, Western Europe, and North America. The original G7 (group of nations) that made up the Trilateral Commission were the United States, Canada, England, Japan, France, Italy, and Germany. Mr. Daniel makes a side by side comparison with the six historic nations and one modern nation described in Revelation 6:12 (remember the five fallen kings, one that falls and is revived, and one that continues a short space) as Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome, and Nazi Germany (see Scarlet, p. 553). Since 1973, the number of nations that are members of the Trilateral Commission has grown considerably, but the original seven nations remain the foundation of the organization. This is just one possibility of John's seven mountains, which could be both a past and a future prophecy. 

Personally, I think that this is a very interesting connection that Mr. Daniel has made, but I must stress again, that you must make up your own mind about the book of Revelation, the truth of which can only be revealed to you by the Spirit. The clues that Nephi, John, Daniel, Isaiah, and other prophets have left along our path, are just that, incomplete clues, and we will not see the big picture until these things actually begin to unfold. The purpose of this post is to share with you readers some fascinating insights I've stumbled onto that may give you a foundational point to start looking, if you are so inclined to study these things out. Please don't believe anything that I write without verifying it, and for heaven's sake do your own research before you come to any conclusions. With that said, let's move onto the next clue that Daniel leaves us as we search for the identity of the last-days Beast. 

He Shall Not Regard Any God

In chapter 11 and 12 of the KJV of Daniel (chapter 10 of the Restoration Edition), Daniel describes a future war between four kings, and the battle will eventually come down to two: the king of the North and the king of the South. The king of the North will prevail, and I think this king is one of the kings who will dominate the last-days Beast, which could also be the king of Assyria described by Isaiah. You will have to read the entire chapter/chapters to get the full context, but here is how Daniel describes this king, and it is loaded with clues:
And the king shall do according to his will, and he shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper until the indignation be accomplished; for that which is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god, for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honor the God of forces, and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honor with gold, and silver, and precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strongholds with a strange god whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory. And he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain. (Daniel 10:15, RE)

The first clue is that this king shares the same characteristics as the king of Assyria described by Isaiah. Most notably, his arrogance. He will think that it is because of his strength and his wisdom that he will be able to "remove the borders of the people," i.e., take over the whole world. Here is how Isaiah describes him:

For he saith, By the strength of my hand and by my wisdom have I done these things, for am I prudent. And I have removed the borders of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man. And my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the people, and as one gathereth eggs that are left have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or peeped. Shall the ax boast itself against him the heweth therewith? Shall the saw magnify itself him that shaketh it? As if the rod should shake itself them that lift it up, or as if the staff should lift up itself as if it were no wood... (2 Nephi 9:7, RE)

Can you see the hubris of this man? Is it not unreasonable that this could be Daniel's king as well? Who will "exalt" and "magnify" himself, speaking blasphemous things against the true God, while not regarding any gods but the God of forces? Mr. Daniel reveals that "the Hebrew word for forces literally means ‘fortified place, fortress, or strength’" (Scarlet, p. 548). This king worships his own forces, meaning his own armies, weapons, and military strongpoints. These are the things he trusts in. The next clue is that he will not regard the "God of his fathers." What is Daniel talking about? The "god" of his fathers is none other than Lucifer, the god of English Freemasonry. Remember, it is the Mother of Harlots that will give this man his power, these are his "fathers." But once he gets a taste of that power he will not regard the source of it, falsely believing that it came from himself... the ultimate twist of irony for Mystery Babylon. The next clue is that he shall "not regard any god," meaning that he will be an atheist, believing that man is the highest source of knowledge, power, and authority. As to Daniel's comments about gold, silver (riches) and strongholds, Mr. Daniel makes this interesting observation:

Daniel is revealing that the god of the end-time Beast will be an awesome "defense" force that the world "respects" - a defense force that is "built up" with "riches." We know that today's [1995] military armament is promoted as "defense," and that, ironically, military budgets are called "defense budgets." Revelation 13:4 confirms the awesome defense capability of the Beast: "Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?" (Scarlet, p. 548)

The Beast's god will be military might, false gods of stone and steel, which he will use to terrorize and tyrannize the world. Mr. Daniel explains that the Beast, rejecting the: 

Mystery Babylonian religion of English Freemasonry...,  will instead follow the atheistic-humanist tradition of French Freemasonry. The allegiance of the Beast to French Freemasonry is confirmed in scripture. You recall that French Freemasonry declared in 1877 that there is no God. It proclaimed its secular humanism in the motto, "To the Glory of Humanity." Likewise, the Beast regards no god. And like French Freemasonry, which made a god of humanity, the Beast then "exult[s] himself, and magnif[ies] himself above every god..." (Ibid, p. 548)

Is a picture of this last-days scenario beginning to form in your mind? Let's recap a few important pieces of the puzzle: 

  • Nephi told us that the groups who are members of the Great and Abominable Church will war amongst themselves.
  • Isaiah told us that a king of Assyria will, in the last-days, break many people in pieces and remove the borders of the people. 
  • Jesus told us that we should study the history of countries and kingdoms, and offered the clue that Isaiah spoke of things that have been and shall be. He also commanded us to search the words of Isaiah, which are great, and that many other prophets testified of the same things. 
  • Zachariah saw four horns that will scatter Judah, and four carpenters that will fight revolutions against them. The word carpenter and mason are interchangeable, meaning he saw French Freemasonry's revolutions fought against English Freemasonry. These revolutions have, ironically, helped to emancipate the Jews from the horns. 
  • Daniel describes a Beast with seven heads and ten horns, with a little horn that will rise up and make war with the Saints until Michael, the Ancient of Day, returns. He also describes this "fourth" Beast as one who was mighty anciently, and who will be mighty in the future, and who be will godless. He compares the Beast to iron, and his subjects (us), as clay. Rome was the ancient Beast, and "revived Rome" will be the future Beast. 
  • John also describes a Beast with seven heads and ten horns, who will be part leopard, part lion, and part bear (which is the same description as Daniel's first three beasts). John's Beast will control ten kings who will be waiting to receive their kingdoms under his hand, and all of these will hate the whore, make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh. They will destroy her city and her merchants in one hour. John's Beast will make war with the Lamb and the Saints, he shall prevail against the Saints for a short time, until the Lamb destroys him. 
  • Nephi reveals that those who dig a pit for the people of the Lord will fall in themselves. 
  • Daniel affirms that Zion will break apart all earthly kingdoms, by its mere existence, and will stand forever and ever. 
Are you keeping all this straight? It's a bit overwhelming. In writing this post I've had to read the material I'm studying over and over, and I hope I'm presenting it in a way that is copacetic and easy to follow. Like I said before, none of the scriptural clues are chronological or coherent, each one requires a trip down a rabbit hole and endless hours of study. But now that we have come this far, it's time to reveal the nation that Daniel calls the "little horn," or the revived Roman Empire. 


One of these Nations is Just like the Other

Surprise, the little horn is none other than the United States of America, as you recall, Daniel said it was made of the roots of three other horns. These horns are Spain, France, and England. Remember, it was Spain, France, and England who were vying over the territory surrounding the Colonies. Spain controlled Florida and most of the West, France controlled the Mid-West, and England controlled the Colonies. After the Colonies won their independence, Jefferson bought the Mid-West (The Louisiana Purchase) from Napoleon for an outrageously cheap price. It was a deal he couldn't pass up, and he did it without Congressional approval. Spain eventually lost control of Texas and the West to Mexico seeking its independence, and Florida was annexed by the U.S. in 1822. President Polk would later fight an imperialistic war against Mexico, annexing the entire West, and Texas, after fighting it's own war of independence, would voluntarily join the Union in 1845. 

Ben Franklin, a high-ranking Mason of the Scottish Rite, was secretly working with French Freemasonry as a spy against the English. He made frequent trips to England and France during the years preceding the American Revolution, gathering intel to use against the English. The cartoonish history we have of this man is laughable, his loyalties were to French Freemasonry, not to any country. Remember, it was the French fleet that came at the last minute to help us win the Revolution, and this was not some altruistic mission to help the Colonies, it was because French Freemasonry had a special interest in America. It was Franklin, who, with two other Masons, was commissioned by the Continental Congress to design the Great Seal of America, the same one that showed up on the back of the dollar bill in 1935. As I pointed out in Part II, the Great Seal is loaded with esoteric symbolism of French and English Freemasonry. If you want to learn about the fascinating details of Franklin's intrigue against the English, watch the video below. The first half is about the identity of the Beast (spoiler alert), and the second half is about Franklin:


At this point I have to make have a comment on scripture. God told Joseph Smith that He raised up wise men for the purpose of establishing the Constitution of the United States. What He never said, and what is not in scripture, is that these "wise men" were good men. Solomon was wise, but not good, he was an idolator, steeped in the occult, and a womanizer. Ben Franklin was an idolator, steeped in the occult, and a womanizer. God can use the works of wicked men to fulfill His purposes. In fact, if you read this post I wrote a while back, you will see who I believe were the true Founding Fathers of this nation: everyday ordinary Christians trying to escape Europe, the same Gentiles that Nephi saw in vision. As much as I'm sorry to say it, most of the Founder's involved in the creation of the Constitution were Freemasons and not Christians, including one of my favorites, Thomas Jefferson. 

Daniel's "little horn," or rising nation, has a lot in common with ancient Rome, so much so, that it can be considered an appendage of that civilization. The Untied States, then, is John's Beast that was, and is not, but yet is. Here are the similarities between the U.S. and Rome as pointed out in Mr. Daniel's book:

  • Both were democratic republics.
  • Both incorporated separation of powers into governmental law. 
  • Both republics were based upon specific laws.
  • Both protected the rights of their citizens.
  • Both stressed that all citizens were equal (except the slaves).
  • Both had a sordid history of slavery.
  • Both operated under a capitalistic system. 
  • Both authorized abortions.
  • Both loved R-rated entertainment. 
  • Both created welfare states funded by taxes.
  • Both had a thriving business in lawsuits.
  • Both were the melting-pots of the world. 
  • Both promoted sports as a favorite national pastime. 
  • Both displayed its national emblem as a single-headed Eagle with wings spread. (Scarlet, p. 554)
There is one final test that Mr. Daniel points out that will help us identify the last-days Beast. In past posts I've gone over the symbolism used by secret societies that reveal their true identity and philosophies. Numerology and symbolism is the one thing that cannot lie. Lucifer is bound by some unwritten law to reveal his plans to the world, and this he does through hiding symbols and numbers in plain sight, guaranteeing him that only those who are looking for them will discover the truth. John the Revelator tells us the number of the Beast in a triad form: "six hundred threescore and six." Well that number just so happens to be a Roman numeral, and I'll let Mr. Daniel explain the rest:
The clue for identifying the Beast nation is found in a series of numbers that are listed as a triad of two numbers each (600 + 60 + 6), which adds up to 666. Strong's Concordance informs us that 666 is a Roman numeral.

Roman numerals, therefore, give the clue of how to identify the mark of the Beast. When the New Testament was written, Rome used a combination of six alphabet letters to make up all its numbers. The letters are: D C L X V I. (The letter "M" representing 1000 is a more recent invention. Originally it was CIC, with the right-hand C turned backwards. By connecting the two "C's" to the "I" in the middle, it gradually evolved into "M"). The six Roman numerals and their numerical vales are:

 D - 500

 C - 100

 L - 50 

 X - 10

 V - 5

 I - 1 

When we group each of the letters above in order of two's we discover the exact fulfillment of Revelation 13:8. DC equals 600; LX equals 60; and VI equals 6 - "Six hundred threescore and six." 

Applying this Scriptural wisdom we discover that the kingdom of the beast will be a revival of the old Roman empire. Whatever nation this kingdom is, the ultimate test for identification comes from understanding his mark, or symbol, which is 666 in Roman numerals. Scripture says it will be tied to the medium of exchange. (Scarlet, pp. 557-58) 

And as you can see on the back of this American one-dollar bill, there are Roman numerals and words all over it:

The Roman numerals at the bottom of the pyramid are MDCCLXXVI, and add up to 1776. The phrase Annuit Coeptis means, "he/she favors our undertakings," which I believe is a deference to Hermes, the androgynous god. And the famous phrase Novus Ordo Seclorum, of course means, "new order of the ages," or New World Order. 

As I've said before, Satan imitates and corrupts everything that God does, including the concept of promised-lands. Freemasonry has envisioned a secret destiny for America that goes all the way back to the lost empire of Atlantis. Their goals for a one-world government are based upon Atlantean myth and legend. English Freemasonry envisions their Atlantean empire as a theocracy, and French Freemasonry envisions theirs as an atheistic democracy, but as we shall see in the next post, both versions would be a totalitarian nightmare. You see dear readers, Satan has an imitation for everything, including God's Zion. The Atlantean utopia as prescribed by Freemasonry sounds great... in one breath they proclaim that everyone will be "free" to engage in higher learning, and there will be no crime and no poverty, while in the next breath asserting that those who rule will have absolute power over their subjects, and that all will live in communalism, which is communism. In this Atlantean nightmare, there will be no freedom, it will be Satan's plan incarnate on the earth, that Old Serpent, who attempted to dethrone God Himself and destroy the precious gift of agency bestowed upon us all. 


In the next post, as we conclude the description of the Beast empire, we will dive deep into this Atlantean utopia, and the secret destiny of America as envisioned by Freemasonry. You may be surprised to learn that the promised-land that Lehi and Nephi were led to has also been on the radar of Luciferians since the time of Columbus. America is both God and Satan's home-base of operations for the latter-days, and as the wheat and the tares grow together, the wheat will gravitate towards individual liberty while the tares embrace socialistic collectivism. The tricky thing is that Satan's democratic utopia will be presented in the dressings of liberty and freedom, but on the inside it will be nothing but "beastly" totalitarianism. Stay tuned for Part IV...

Postscript: Videos and Books for Further Study

Bill Cooper continues his series on Scarlet and the Beast, these will help you prepare for the next post. Sometimes he rants and that can be annoying, but there is good information presented here, most of it coming from John Daniel's book:
