Chapter 77: The Rosicrucians
The pentagram unaccountably is found in most cultures worldwide. I believe the pentagram is as an elemental symbol emanating from the 6,000- year Genesis 6 Conspiracy, along with the snake and dragon. According to Greer, the Pythagorean (Snake) Brotherhood used the pentagram as a secret sign of recognition. By the Middle Ages, the pentagram found a place in magic as a symbol of power and appeared in the English poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Greer further notes the pentagram was identified as the most important symbol in magic and the emblem of Satanism by the French occultist Eliphas Levi (1810–1875). Wicca and twentieth- century Satanism adopted the pentagram from occult sources influenced by Levi, whereby Christians thereafter generally defined the pentagram as the primary symbol of devil worship. 51
Hence, Rosicrucianism is a cunning system of mysticism founded upon the Kabbalah. Esoteric scholars link speculative Masonry (and thus, Rosicrucianism) to the Kabbalah, the “opaque mystical Jewish discipline” of biblical interpretation. 52 Mackey additionally writes that Rosicrucians were all Theosophists holding true to doctrines of angels and demons, elements, the influence of heavenly bodies on man (astrology), magical numbers (numerology), suffunigations, and other sorceries. 53 Remember, Robert Lomas states that the Rosicrucians were the first scientists and the last of the sorcerers. He further notes the Rosicrucians proudly claim to speak to demons and fallen angels: 54 spirit guides and Avatars. The Rosicrucian Order is regarded to be an “inner world group” of great Adepts holding knowledge, power, and wisdom that essentially make them demigods compared to mundane humans. These are Adepts who answer directly to the College of Invisibles, the obscure source of the knowledge and force behind the Rosicrucian movement 55 and the invisible world government.
Rosicrucians regard Qayin (Cain) of Genesis to be the artificer of metals of the highest order, and they hold his posterity in the same high regard. Tubal- Cain is the holder of Plutonic theory, the knowledge (from the underworld and its god Pluto/Hades in Greek mythology) of the actions of internal heat, and therefore, a most prominent alchemist. 56 In the same manner, the Goat of Mendes (Azazel) is directly associated with alchemy, according to Gardner, 57 as is the pentagram. According to Gardner, the emblem of Rosicrucians, the Rosi Crucis, is more accurately described as a dragon incurved to circle a red cross, 58 known also as the Mark of Cain. Rosicrucianism is directly connected to Cain, the seven corrupted sciences, Nephilim, and fallen angels of the antediluvian epoch.
