Just recently the University of Bradford released lectures in freemasonry and published it on their website. Dr Robert Lomas of the University of School of Management has dumped his archives on his research of Freemasonry and the information he’s got from the Masonic writer Walter Leslie Wilmshurst and published it on the internet.
The release of this information of Scottish Rite freemasons from the Hermetic vaults of masonry is astonishing to say the least since it reveals their knowledge and understanding of the Galactic Alignment that occurs this time around era-2012.
Galactic Alignment is the conjunction of the summer and winter solstice Sun with the Galactic Equator that happens around 2012 (in the 2012 era from 1980-2016). It is the origin of the 26000 year precession cycle and the beginning of a New Age.
This freemason revelation came to my attention through the publication of an article on Wayne Herschel’s website.
Herschel has interpreted the freemason’s disclosure as a confirmation of his ‘mystery’ star theory but we’ll provide an alternative interpretation in this article.
Earlier we have re-interpreted Herschel’s Stonehenge-Pleiades connection and showed how the Pleiades are a pointer to the summer solstice Sun on the Milky Way (summer solstice Galactic Alignment) that is encoded at Stonehenge.
We cannot expect that the Scottish Rite freemasons will give away their secret knowledge that they have preserved for centuries without further ado; the revelation of the information that they have given on the Bradford’s University’s website may be as close as we can ever get about learning their esoteric mysteries, yet they have left the door ajar enough for us to swing it open and reveal what’s inside.
We must keep in mind that the nature of the information that is provided by the Scottish Rite freemasons is of an exoteric nature. The hidden esoteric or occult meaningof their information is only revealed to the initiates of the Order. While a Masonic symbol may have a clear obvious exoteric appearance it may distract us from the multiple intended esoteric meanings. In other words an exoteric symbol may have one or more esoteric meanings.
All we have is the mysterious ‘Tracing Board’ and the clues that were given by the Scottish Rite freemasons on their website.
Here’s a summary of the important clues that were given:
“The blazing star, or glory in the centre, refers us to the Sun, which enlightens the earth, and by its benign influence dispenses blessings to mankind in general”.
“In all regular, well-formed, constituted Lodges, there is a point within a circle round which a Mason cannot err; this circle is bounded between North and South by two grand parallel lines, the one representing Moses, the other King Solomon; on the upper part of this circle rests the Volume of the Sacred Law, supporting Jacob's ladder, the top of which reaches to the heavens; and were we as conversant with that holy book, and as adherent to the doctrines therein contained, as both those parallels were, it would lead us to Him who will not deceive us, neither will He suffer deception.”
“The three great Pillars supporting Mason's Lodges are emblematical of the Divine attributes; they further represent Solomon, King of Israel, Hiram, King of Tyre, and Hiram Abif. Solomon, King of Israel for his Wisdom in building, completing, and dedicating the Temple at Jerusalem to God's service; Hiram, King of Tyre, for his Strength in supporting him with men and material and Hiram Abif, for his curious a masterly workmanship in beautifying and adorning the same. But as we have no noble orders in Architecture known by the names of Wisdom Strength, and Beauty, we refer them to the three most celebrated, the Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian.”
Moses caused a tent or Tabernacle to be erected in the wilderness, which by God's especial command was situated due East and West, for Moses did everything according to a pattern shown him by the Lord on Mount Sinai. This Tent or Tabernacle proved afterwards to be the ground-plan, in respect to situation, of that most magnificent Temple built at Jerusalem by that wise and mighty Prince, King Solomon, whose regal splendour and unparalleled lustre far transcend our ideas.
Let’s carefully analyse these clues.
Solstice and equinox Sun
The first thing that attracts our attention are the cardinal directions that are noted in the tessellated border of the board. According to the Scottish Rite freemasons, the mosaic on the border represents the planets of our Solar System.
There’s no doubt that the blazing star at the centre of the ‘Tracing Board’ is our Sun. The point within the circle depicted on the table at the foot of the ladder is the ancient representation of the Sun as well as the Egyptian hieroglyph for Ra, the Egyptian Sun god.
The Blazing Star corresponds with the equinox Sun that rises in the East and sets in the West. The top of the board is the East and the bottom is the West. The equinox Sun lies on the line connecting the cardinal directions East and West.
The Scottish Rite freemasons gave us the clue that ‘The grand parallel lines thatbound the Sun between the North and the South’ are in fact the tropic of Cancer (North) and tropic of Capricorn (South). The tropics determine the extremes of Sun’s path at the summer and winter solstices.
The grand paralell lines
Given these clues, there is therefore little doubt that the Suns on the left and right represent the solstice Suns!
The Sun on the left is the summer solstice Sun that rises in the North East and sets in the North West during the summer solstice. This Sun appears in the North East region of the ‘Tracing Board’.
The Sun on the right is the winter solstice Sun that rises in the South East and sets in the South West during the winter solstice. This Sun appears in the South East region of the ‘Tracing Board’.
The central Sun the blazing star has yet another very important significance; it represents the Sun on the Galactic Equator as we will demonstrate later.
The three Suns depicted in the ‘Tracing Board’ from right to left seem to suggest the movement of the Sun through the Galactic Equator at the equinox. This is the basic concept of the precession of the equinoxes.
The name ‘Tracing Board’ therefore may suggest the tracing of the Sun along the precession cycle since it presents the idea of the conjunction of the Sun with the Galactic Equator on solstices and equinoxes.
The latter isthe concept of Galactic Alignment or Great Celestial Conjunctions as we have called them in our paper ‘Crucifying the Earth on the Galactic Cross’ (Smelyakov, Wicherink 2006). There are four of these conjunctions of the Sun with the Galactic Equator in a Platonic Year (one full precession cycle) that make up the four World Ages of the ancients.
The ecliptic crosses the Milky Way at two places; one place is near the Dark Rift in between the constellations Scorpio and Sagittarius while the other is in between Taurus and Gemini near the Pleiades.
In our present time the Sun aligns with the Dark Rift near the Galactic Centre at the winter solstice. Also during the summer solstice the Sun aligns with the crossing of the ecliptic and the Milky Way in between Taurus and Gemini.The sun now resides near the Pleiades and the Galactic Anti-Centre.
If we take a careful look at the ‘Tracing Board’ we notice that the Sun on the left is depicted in a black dark region. This dark region represents the Dark Rift of the Milky Way. If we look at the Sun on the right we notice that there are seven stars depicted near the Sun. The seven stars denote the stars of the Pleiades
There is one thing however that doesn’t quit seem to fit. The summer solstice Sun ( Sun on the left) is near in the Dark Rift, while the winter solstice Sun is near the Pleiades.
This is the reverse situation of the current Galactic Alignment that is occurring during era 2012!
Although the ‘Tracing Board’ conveys the idea of Galactic Alignment it is actually referring to the Galactic Alignment that occurred half a precession cycle ago (around 13.000 years ago). This is the time that many researchers have associated with the time of Egyptian Zep Tepi (first time), the Deluge and the destruction of Atlantis.
Bible and Astrology
In order to further understand the secrets of the ‘Tracing Board’ we must understand that the Bible contains texts that are an allegory of the esoteric astrological meaning that it conceals. We can only fully decode the ‘Tracing Board’ if we accept the possibility that the biblical references given by the Scottish Rite freemasons are in fact astronomical hints. It is beyond the scope of this article to prove the assertion that the Bible encodes astrological information.
Also this this website gives information on the astrological –biblical links that we will be using in this article.
So let’s look at all of the clues the freemason’s left on their website and in the ‘Tracing Board’ and review them in their astrological context.
Jacob’s ladder appears in the ‘Tracing Board’ and is reaching into the Heavens. Jacob was the grandson of Abraham and Sarah, the son of Isaac and Rebecca. Jacob's 12 sons were the ancestors of the 12 tribes of Israel. The 12 tribes of Israel is a reference to the twelve houses of the Zodiac, just like the 12 apostles of Jesus are. That’s why Leonardo Da Vinci portrayed the apostles in 4 groups of three in his painting of the Last Supper separating the zodiac into four seasons.
Leonardo Da Vinci, Last Supper with four groups of apostles
Notice by the way that there is no chalice on the table!
Jacob dreamt of the Milky Way as a ladder with angels ascending and descending it. The ascending angles of course are the up and down moving stars in the sky.
And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it! (Gen 28:12)
Milky Way erect during summer
During summertime the Milky Way stands erect on the horizon and forms a ‘Stairway to Heaven’ or Jacob’s ladder. The idea of representing the Milky Way as a stairway or ladder leading to Heaven was a very common theme in ancient times. This idea was expressed as a rope, a tree (World Tree) or a ladder leading into the skies. The Maya called the Milky Way the Wakah Chan during summer sunrise ‘the raised up sky’ and it was represented as the World Tree.
On the website the Scottish Rite freemasons speak about the ‘The Volume of the Sacred Law’ appearing on the table with the circle and dot (Sun) supporting Jacob’s ladder. The Volume of the Sacred Law is a reference to the religious book, the Holy Bible containing the Masonic square and compasses.
This statement I believe states that the Sun (circle and dot) is supporting the Milky Way (Jacob’s ladder) and that this knowledge is contained in ‘The Volume of the Sacred Law’, the Bible which rests between the Sun (circle and dot) and the Milky Way (Jacob’s ladder). In other words they are speaking of the importance of the Sun on the Milky Way (Galactic Alignment), information that is contained in the bible...
The Scottish Rite freemasons write ‘there is a point within a circle round which a Mason cannot err; this circle is bounded between North and South by two grand parallel lines, the one representing Moses, the other King Solomon’. As we have explained above this is a reference to the solstice sun. So according to the freemasons, Moses must be equalled to the solstice sun!
This reveals yet another clue.
In the book Exodus a “pillar of cloud” is mentioned that guided Moses out of the desert during the daytime and a “pillar of fire” that accompanied him by night.
21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night;
22 the pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night did not depart from before the people. (Ex. 13:21-22)
This pillar of cloud and pillar of fire is nothing less than the Milky Way:
Pillar of fire representation of the Milky Way at night
Notice that the three pillars in the ‘Tracing Board’’ are surrounded by clouds! The horizontal architraves disappear into the clouds. Notice that there are three pillars and three clouds, but they are not normal clouds since they are all vertical clouds, pillars of clouds which is very unusual! The fact that the three pillars are also veiled by the three vertical clouds stresses the fact that the pillars and the clouds are linked. These are significant clues that the pillars represent the daytime ‘pillar of cloud’ representation of the Milky Way.
The pillars themselves appear in three styles ‘Doric’, ‘Ionic’ and ‘Corinthian’ representing Wisdom Strength and Beauty that are the attributes of the pillars that support a Scottish Rite freemason’s Lodge. According to the website they also represent Solomon King of Israel, Hiram, King of Tyre and Hiram Abif.
The astronomical significance of Moses (representing the Sun) is revealed while he ascends mount Sinai on his way to receive the Ten Commandments from God. The cloud in the following Bible texts refers to the Milky Way. Now follow this:
The cloud is coming.
9 And the LORD said to Moses. “Lo, I am coming to you in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with you, and may also believe you for ever.”
The cloud is on the mountain (at the junction) waiting for Moses the sun to arrive.
16 On the morning of the third day there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast, so that all the people who were in the camp trembled.
Moses the sun is ascending.
15 Then Moses went up on the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain.
When Moses enters the tent (covering or covenant), the sun is crossing the Milky Way.
9 When Moses entered the tent, the pillar of cloud would descend and stand at the door of the tent, and the LORD would speak with Moses.
Notice that the pillar of cloud stands at the door of the tent an indication of the erected Milky Way as it appears in the summer night sky.
One might argue that the association of the pillar of cloud with the Milky Way are wild speculations, but me must remember there is another clue given by the Scottish Rite freemasons mentioning the fact that Moses his tent or Tabernacle was erected due East and West according to a pattern shown by the Lord on Mount Sinai. This pattern corresponds with the ground plan of Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem! We are surely dealing with an astronomical event here, since all temples in ancient times where aligned to the rising and setting equinox Sun due East and West.
Another interesting fact is that Moses was on the Mount and in the clouds for 40 days and 40 nights.
And Moses entering into the midst of the cloud, went up into the mountain: And he was there forty days and forty nights.
And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.
Professor Sergey Smelyakov has calculated that the era of the Great Celestial Conjunction lasts exactly 39 years! This is the time that the Sun resides on the Milky Way during a Great Celestial Conjunction at solstices or equinoxes.
So the biblical account for the duration (whereas years are represented as days) of the Galactic Alignment era comes very close to the calculations made by professor Sergey Smelyakov. John Major Jenkins mentions era-2012 (1980-2016) as a period of 36 years. This period was calculated by the astronomer Jean Meeus, however Smelyakov has proven that his calculations are more accurate than the calculations made by Jean Meeus.
Finally in Revelation, the book that deals with the End of Time prophecies, we find another reference to the crossing of the Sun with the ‘pillars of fire’. The rainbow in the text symbolizes the ecliptic (arc of the sun).
1 Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow over his head, and his face was like the sun, and his legs like pillars of fire. (Rev. 10:1)
King Solomon is very important to the Scottish Rite freemasons. The knowledge they gained and the secrets they keep originate from Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem.
King Solomon completed the temple in Jerusalem that became the abode of the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark of the Covenant contained the Ten Commandments that Moses took down from mount Sinai.
If Moses meeting with God at mount Sinai represents a Galactic Alignment (the sun’s conjunction with the Milky Way), then the Ark of the Covenant must be the container that stores this sacred knowledge.
When the Knights Templars on their crusades to Jerusalem found the remains of the destroyed temple of Jerusalem (Solomon’s temple), they discovered the ‘Holy Grail’. The ‘Holy Grail’ is most likely not an artefact, the chalice of the Last Supper but very likely ‘a secret’ that reveals the true origins of Christianity and its foundation on pagan traditions astrology and its ancient Egyptian-Sumerian-Babylonian roots. Leonardo Da Vinci as a freemason understood this and that’s why he’s left the chalice out of his painting of the Last Supper.
If you look at the ‘Tracing Board’ you see a hand emerging from underneath the blazing Sun on the Milky Way. The hand is reaching out to the chalice, it’s the Masonic symbol of the ‘Holy Grail’. Since the ‘Tracing Board’ reveals information on Galactic Alignment it’s my assumption that this information was part of the knowledge that the Templars acquired on their travels to the Holy Land. This knowledge has become part of the Holy Grail that was passed on to the Scottish Rite freemasons.
Beneath the chalice (Holy Grail symbol) we find an anchor, a key and a cross. The key symbolizes the ‘key’ to the secret knowledge, the Holy Grail that the Church has been trying to hide. The links of the Catholic Church’s to its pagan roots were destroyed during the first council in Nicea in 325 AD and Christians were taught that astrology is evil and devil worshipping. We now understand why.
The cross represents the celestial cross that is formed by the crossing of the ecliptic and the Milky Way. This is the origin of the cross symbol that is far more ancient than Christianity itself who adopted this symbol to represent the resurrection of Christ as we have explained in our article ‘Crucifying the Earth on the Galactic Cross’. The cross represents a Great Celestial Conjunction or Galactic Alignment when the Earth Cross aligns with the Galactic Cross.
Earth Cross and Galactic Cross merge during a Great Celestial Conjunction
The symbol worn by the Knights Templars is a red cross.
The anchor in the ‘Tracing Board’ symbolizes the anchor point and origin of the precession cycle, the current Great Celestial Conjunction (Galactic Alignment 2012).
The mysteries of the Templars and why they amassed so much wealth after their return from the Holy Land may be nothing less than the extortion of the Church since they now had compelling evidence of the ancient pagan roots of Christianity that could be traced back to ancient Egypt, Sumer and Babylon.
Research has revealed that Christ was NOT THE FIRST Saviour to have been born from a virgin mother and die on the cross. For example the Egyptian Sun god Horus was born from the virgin mother Isis-Meri (Mary) on December 25th, 4 days after the Sun of God (Horus) had died on the winter solstice day on the zodiac cross. He was resurrected and reborn four days later when the Sun of God started to rise again in the winter skies. The similarities between the Sun of God and the life of the Son of God Jesus Christ are remarkable. The list of prophets who were born of a virgin mother counts at least 13 members and they all lived before the time of Christ
The Templars probable extortion of the Church and King Philip IV’s personal dept to the Templars became the turning point when the king persuaded Pope Clement V to intervene and take action to stop the Templars. On Friday the 13 October 1307 king Philip IV had members of the Order arrested, tortured and burned at the stake.
Since many of the Templars were informed on forehand of the betrayal by the French king, they fled to the port of La Rochelle from where their ships set sail to Scotland. On board were most likely their treasures and the Ark of the Covenant. The Templars got protection from Robert the Bruce after the battle of Bannockburn, which took place on St. John the Baptist's day. The Templars worshiped and accepted John the Baptist as their Saviour and not Christ since they had turned their back on the Church.
Their treasures including the Ark of the Covenant were most likely buried in Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland near Edinburgh. Rosslyn Chapel was built according to the floor plan of Solomon’s temple and the Tabernacle of Moses and is believed to be a replica of Solomon’s temple itself.
The rebuilding of Solomon’s temple in Jerusalem is linked to the prophecies of the ‘New Jerusalem, city of Revelation’, the biblical End Times, the second coming of Christ, the end of the Maya fourth Sun, the end of the Hopi fourth world, the Apocalypse (meaning Revelation), the End of the Great Cycle (Platonic Year) and the current Great Celestial Conjunction or Galactic Alignment2012.
These I believe all these eschatological prophecies are ALL THE SAME EVENTS.
1 And I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth: for the first Heaven and the first Earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of Heaven, prepared as a Bride adorned for her Husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of Heaven saying, Behold, the Tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are True and Faithful.
6 And He said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the Water of Life freely.
The Royal Exalted Religious and Military Order of Masonic Knights Templar of England and Wales
Scottish Rite of Freemasonry
The arrival of the Templars in Scotland was the start of Scottish freemasonry and the formation for the Lodges of the Scottish Rite as well as the Lodges of the Masonic Knights Templars of England and Wales.
Is it therefore a surprise that the revelations of these Scottish Rite freemasons are published on a website of a British University?
Certainly not! What is surprising is that they came out with this information now we’re heading towards 2012!
The initiates and keepers of the deepest secrets of the End of Time Prophecies, such as the Maya and the Hopi, and now the Scottish Rite freemasons as well, all step forward in this special time to announce their message to the world. It seems the time of the Apocalypse or the time of Revelation has come.
