Rosicrucianism - The Golden Dawn
Rosicrucianism is a philosophical secret society, said to have been founded in late medieval Germany by Christian Rosenkreuz. It holds a doctrine or theology built on esoteric truths of the ancient past which is concealed from the average man, provides insight into nature, the physical universe and the spiritual realm. Rosicrucianism is symbolized by the Rosy Cross.
Two Rosicrucian-inspired Masonic rites emerged towards the end of 18th century, the Rectified Scottish Rite, widespread in Central Europe where there was a strong presence of the "Golden and Rosy Cross", and the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, first practised in France, in which the 18th degree is called Knight of the Rose Croix. The Gold und Rosenkreuzer (Golden and Rosy Cross) was founded by the alchemist Samuel Richter.
The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn Began in 1850
When Kenneth MacKenzie was initiated by Hungarian Count Apponyi in Austria into a Rosicrucian lineage and was given a collection of 60 folios, called Cypher Manuscripts, containing the structural outline of a series of magical initiation rituals that eventually became the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. The Hermetic tradition arose out of the confluence of Egyptian and Greek cultures in Alcxandria in Ptolomaic Egypt.
The earliest roots of the Hermetic tradition are found in the astronomical, spiritual traditions of Sumeria, then in Chaldea and Egypt before reaching Europe with the Greek and Roman empires. In Greece, this early wisdom found its way into the Pythagoraen tradition and filtered into the Orphic, Delphic, and Elusenian mysteries. In Rome, it arrived from Egypt with the Hermetic and Gnostic traditions, then spread through the Mythraic and the Isiac mysteries, later giving rise to Neo-Platonism.
The Hermetic Tradition, Being Opposed by the Church, Became a Part of the Occult Underworld
Intermingling with other occult movements and practices. The infusion of Hermeticism into occultism has given it great influence in Western magical traditions. Hermeticism's spiritual practices were found very useful in magical work, especially in Theurgic (divine) practices as opposed to Goëtic (profane) practices, due to the religious context from which Hermeticism sprang forth.
Using the teachings and imagery of the Jewish Qabalah and Christian mysticism, Hermetic Theurgy was used effectively and in a context more easily understood by Europeans in the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Hermetic magic underwent a flowering in Western Europe, when the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was founded in 1888. The Rosicrucian tradition is a flowering of Hermeticism, a rose blossoming upon the cross of the Hermetic tradition.
The Rose May Also Be Seen to Symbolize the Soul and the Cross
The body of the four elements. In other words, the human soul crucified on the cross of the material plane. This rosy cross may be similar to the Egyptian use of the ankh. According to a legend of the 18th century Golden and Rosy Cross order in Germany, the Rosicrucian order was created when an Alexandrian Gnostic sage named Ormus and his six followers were converted by Mark, one of Jesus' disciples.
From this conversion, Rosicrucianism was supposedly born, fusing early Christianity with Egyptian mysteries. Rosicrucianism and Freemasonry, the latter borrowed its form from the first. He that gives himself out as a Rosicrucian, without knowing the general ritual of masonry, is unquestionably an impostor. Both organizations share unique characteristics including the basic Masonic legend and ressurection of Hiram Abiff.
The Legend of Hiram Abiff has a Partial Biblical Basis from First Kings, Chapter 7
And Second Chronicles, Chapter 2: there it is stated that King Hiram of the Phoenician City of Tyre sent a skilled architect, also called Hiram, to Israel to assist King Solomon in the building of his great Temple. The Masonic legend continues as follows: Hiram Abiff was "a widow's son" from Tyre, skilful in the working of all kinds of metals; he was employed to design and supervise the construction of King Solomon's Temple.
One day, while worshiping the Grand Architect of the Universe within the Temple "Holy of Holies," Hiram was attacked by three apprentice Masons named Jubela, Jubelo, and Jubelum, these three were known collectively as "the Juwes." The three men demanded that Hiram give them the "Master's word," i.e., the secret name of God. Hiram refused as this word could only be given to those who had become initiated as Master Masons.
The First Man, Named Jubela, then Struck Hiram Across the Throat with a 24 inch Gauge
The second man, named Jubelo, struck Hiram's breast, over the heart, with a square. The third man, named Jubelum, struck Hiram upon the forehead with a gavel. Hiram fell dead. His blood had been shed within the temple. After his death, Hiram's body was carried out of the East gate of the Temple and buried outside Jerusalem on Mount Moriah.
Early the following morning, King Solomon visited the temple construction site and found the workmen in confusion because no plans had been made for the day's work. Fearing that evil had befallen Hiram, King Solomon sent out twelve Fellowcraft Masons to look for Hiram, three Masons to each of the four cardinal directions. King Solomon himself accompanied the three Masons who journeyed towards the East. Having finally located the grave of Hiram, Solomon and his fellow Masons exhumed the body.
A Search Was Made for the Master's Word "The Name of God"
But all that was found was the letter "G". Finding the word lost, they cried out: "O Lord, my God, is there no help for the widow's son?" The Masons first took hold of Hiram's body with the "Boaz" grip of the first degree. This failed to achieve its purpose. They then re-positioned their hold upon Hiram's body using the "Jachin" grip of the second degree.
This also failed to accomplish its purpose. Solomon finally raised Hiram from the dead by using the third degree grip of the Master Mason and by uttering in Hiram's ear the phrase "Ma-Ha-Bone." Immediately after these words had been uttered, Hiram Abiff was resurrected from the dead. He stood up and departed from them saying that he was being ushered into a more glorious existence. This is the legend shared by Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism.
Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism are Deeply Embedded into the Secret Mysteries of the Occult
And both are New Age to the core and both are serving a common foundation. The foundation on which the whole New World Order structure rests and his name is Lucifer. Isaiah 14 12-16: How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning? and cut down to the ground, which didst cast lots upon the nations?
Yet thou saidest in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, and exalt my throne above beside the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation in the sides of the North. I will ascend above the height of the clouds, and I will be like the most high. But thou shalt be brought down to the grave, to the side of the pit. They that see thee, shall look upon thee and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, and that did shake the kingdoms?
