The technique of the Mysteries was unfolded by the Sage Illuminator, the Master of the Secret House. The power to know his guardian spirit was revealed to the new initiate; the method of disentangling his material body from his divine vehicle was explained; and to consummate the magnum opus, there was revealed the Divine Name-the secret and unutterable designation of the Supreme Deity, by the very knowledge of which man and his God are made consciously one. With the giving of the Name, the new initiate became himself a pyramid, within the chambers of whose soul numberless other human beings might also receive spiritual enlightenment."

The entire passage above is filled with occult references. The possibility that human beings can become gods by taking a secret "initiation" is another form of the original Satanic lie, and author Phillip D. Collins gives an analysis of this aspect of occult dogma in his excellent short article Luciferianism: The Religion of Apotheosis.

Hall refers to another occult practice when he mentions the conferring of the "power to know his guardian spirit." This statement reveals Hall as a practicing magician because it refers to an occult procedure based on The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage. This legendary text was supposedly composed by a Hebrew Kabbalist in the fifteenth century and it related information provided by an Egyptian mage named Abramelin. The text is essentially a grimoire that explains the procedures necessary for a magician to conjure and communicate with his or her "Holy Guardian Angel" as a means to gain further spiritual insight and instruction. This procedure became an important part of the Golden Dawn system, and later Aleister Crowley endorsed it as a necessary component of the OTO. Contrary to the occult belief that "angels" can be a source of spiritual wisdom, both the Old and New Testaments categorically forbid communication with the spirit world and characterize such contact as avenues through which the fallen angels can deceitfully portray themselves as "angels of light."

Hall's references to the "Divine Name" show Hall's Kabbalistic inclinations because, as Part Six explained, the 72-letter Shem ha-Mephorash, known as the Divine Name of YHWH, is the primary basis for Kabbalists to contact the seventy or seventy-two Kosmokrator angels that rule over the nations of the world. Regarding the number "seventy" Hall writes that "wherever this round number is used by the Hebrews it really means seventy-two."[33] Hall's commentary on the Great Pyramid continues: "In the King's Chamber was enacted the drama of the "second death." Here the candidate, after being crucified upon the cross of the solstices and the equinoxes, was buried in the great coffer... While his body lay in the coffer, the soul of the neophyte soared as a human-headed hawk through the celestial realms, there to discover first hand the eternity of Life, Light, and Truth, as well as the illusion of Death, Darkness, and Sin. Thus in one sense the Great Pyramid may be likened to a gate through which the ancient priests permitted a few to pass toward the attainment of individual completion."

Again we find that occult doctrines are reinforced with promises of personal metaphysical experience. Both combine to promote the Luciferian lie that death and sin are illusions that inhibit spiritual growth. Hall continues: "Though the modern world may know a million secrets, the ancient world knew one-and that one was greater than the million; for the million secrets breed death, disaster, sorrow, selfishness, lust, and avarice, but the one secret confers life, light, and truth. The time will come when the secret wisdom shall again be the dominating religious and philosophical urge of the world. The day is at hand when the doom of dogma shall be sounded. The great theological Tower of Babel, with its confusion of tongues, was built of bricks of mud and the mortar of slime. Out of the cold ashes of lifeless creeds, however, shall rise phoenixlike the ancient Mysteries. No other institution has so completely satisfied the religious aspirations of humanity..."



The reference to the Tower of Babel is certainly interesting, considering the next statement that is perhaps the clearest ever written of occult expectations of the resurrection of the Antichrist: "The Dying God shall rise again! The secret room in the House of the Hidden Places shall be rediscovered. The Pyramid again shall stand as the ideal emblem of solidarity, inspiration, aspiration, resurrection, and regeneration. As the passing sands of time bury civilization upon civilization beneath their weight, the Pyramid shall remain as the visible covenant between Eternal Wisdom and the world. The time may yet come when the chants of the illumined shall be heard once more in its ancient passageways and the Master of the Hidden House shall await in the Silent Place for the coming of that man who, casting aside the fallacies of dogma and tenet, seeks simply Truth and will be satisfied with neither substitute nor counterfeit."

The "Dying God" who is expected to rise again will be the anti-Christ-the substitute and counterfeit of Jesus Christ. He will be the messenger of Hell, yet he will be greeted by the world as a savior and worshiped as a god.

The Stargate Conspiracy The occult teachings promoted by Manly P. Hall and the very similar messages channeled by Edgar Cayce appear in the twenty-first century as integral components of what can be loosely referred to as New Age Spirituality. Giza is now viewed as a global spiritual capital and Egyptian religion is seen as a pure form of religion that once had a unique connection with the divine.

In the 1990s, following Rudolf Gantenbrink's exploration of the "star shafts" in the Great Pyramid, and following the great success of West's Emmy-winning television program "The Mystery of the Sphinx" (1993), the world became even more fascinated and intrigued with ancient Egypt. Out of this climate two mainstream authors, Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval emerged as, arguably, the most important voices that seemed to act as a bridge between the "respectable" world of academia and the bizarre community of New Age devotees and "pyramidiots." In Hancock's Fingerprints of the Gods (1995) Egypt was looked to as a possible stepping stone to a more ancient and advanced global civilization (Atlantis?), while Bauval's The Orion Mystery (1994) postulated that Giza was built as a supernatural gateway to the afterlife and to the stars. Later Hancock and Bauval teamed up to write The Message of the Sphinx (1996), The Mars Mystery (1998) and recently Talisman (2004). The first two continued in their examination of ancient Egypt as the key to the many mysteries surrounding human origins, while Talisman promoted Gnosticism and Hermeticism as underground conduits of the "pure" Egyptian religion that preserved these mysteries during the Dark Ages when Christianity rudely dominated the West.

At the same time that Hancock and Bauval were achieving their success and notoriety a scientist and author named Richard C. Hoagland was making a parallel rise, thanks in large part to his numerous appearances on Art Bell's Coast-to-Coast AM. Hoagland's The Monuments of Mars (1987) brought an extra-terrestrial component to the mix, and espoused a belief that allegedly artificial structures on Mars spoke of a connection between the red planet and ancient Egypt. Hoagland believes that an extraterrestrial civilization was responsible both for the alleged monuments on Mars and for the birth of civilization on earth. He even goes so far as to postulate that perhaps this ET civilization was genetically responsible for the emergence of modern Homo sapiens sapiens. In other words, Hoagland believes that these entities from beyond our solar system are mankind's true creators.

In 1999 there appeared a much needed critical response to the direction in which the hysteria surrounding ancient Egypt was headed. It came in the form of a book entitled The Stargate Conspiracy, written by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince. Their book reveals many strange connection between some of the conclusions reached by Hancock, Bauval and Hoagland and the messages received by Edgar Cayce that have been posthumously promoted by his Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE).

For instance, Hancock and Bauval use archeo-astronomical methods to arrive at 10,500 BC as a date corresponding with the legendary Zep Tepi, or "First Time," when the gods established Egyptian civilization. After arriving at this date using purely scientific methods Hancock and Bauval then mention in passing the messages received by Edgar Cayce that give the same exact date, which gives the reader the impression of supernatural confirmation for Hancock and Bauval's research. As critics Picknett and Prince are able to scientifically debunk the 10,500 BC date and then they argue that Hancock and Bauval probably tried to wrap their calculations around this pre-determined date from the beginning. Picknett and Prince show that Hancock and Bauval are not always up front with their readers, and they explain that Graham Hancock is even accused by other researchers, for this and for many of his related ideas, of "wittingly or unwittingly, following a masonic agenda..." [34]

Edgar Cayce's influence, and that of the ARE, runs much deeper than this, however: "Mark Lehner ... is the most prominent American Egyptologist stationed in Egypt today. He is highly respected internationally. His 1997 book The Complete Pyramids was hailed as a masterly overview of an only too often thorny subject, and was promoted by many major museums, including the British Museum. It is less well known that in 1974 he wrote a book for ARE entitled The Egyptian Heritage, based on the Edgar Cayce Readings, which attempted to reconcile Cayce's pronouncements with the findings of modern Egyptology. According to Lehner in his early days, the Great Pyramid was built as a repository of knowledge, and a 'Temple of Initiation for the White Brotherhood'.

In 1973 Edgar Cayce's son Hugh Lynn Cayce, selected the promising young student Lehner to be ARE's 'insider' within the ranks of academic Egyptology, and it was ARE that paid for his training. They also funded his recent carbon-dating tests of material taken from the Great Pyramid (which seems to indicate that it is about 300 or 400 years older than was thought but not the 8,000 hoped for by ARE). Today he no longer advocates Cayceism, and appears not to espouse any 'alternative' views, now being very much a mainstream Egyptologist. ...

But Mark Lehner is not the only person on the Giza Plateau to have reason to be grateful to ARE. Amazingly, that arch-enemy of all pyramidiots, Dr. Zahi Hawass who since 1987 has been in the powerful position of Director of the Giza Plateau and who was recently promoted to Undersecretary of State for he Giza Monuments was also put through his training as an Egyptologist by ARE. Through fellow ARE members, Hugh Lynn Cayce arranged a scholarship for Hawass at the University of Pennsylvania between 1980 and 1987, where he gained his Ph.D. in Egyptology. Hawass has maintained his association with ARE ever since, and is a regular lecturer at their conferences at their Virginia Beach headquarters.

It is, to say the least, interesting that the two most prominent and influential representatives of Egyptological orthodoxy at Giza are linked to Edgar Cayce's organisation." [35]

Edgar Cayce died in January of 1945, and with his passing the "spirits" that spoke through him lost a very influential voice. The primary "conspiracy" described in The Stargate Conspiracy involves what appears to be the re-establishment of contact from these "spirits" with an influential circle of people that included industrialists, businessmen, scientists and high-level politicians. In this case, the "spirits" claimed to be the nine primary gods of the ancient Egyptian Ennead of Heliopolis, known simply as "The Nine." The figure at the center of the conspiracy was Dr. Andrija Puharich, a physicist and inventor who was closely connected with the CIA and with important scientific research institutes, and who was certainly a high-level member of the Masonic fraternity.

The method for communicating with The Nine was, as always, that of channeling. The first channel by which Puharich was contacted was an Indian mystic by the name of Dr. D.G. Vinod. This first occurred in 1952 in Glen Cove, Maine, on the property of an organization set up for psychical research known as the Round Table Foundation, directed by Dr. Puharich. Later on Puharich would use a handful of other channels to contact and receive direction from The Nine including, albeit briefly, the Israeli psychic Uri Geller. Below is a typical message of introduction from the Nine through their spokesman who claims to the god Atum, who casually refers to himself also as simply "Tom": "I am the beginning. I am the end. I am the emissary. But the original time I was on the Planet Earth was 34,000 of your years ago. I am the balance. And when I say "I" - I mean because I am an emissary for The Nine. It is not I , but it is the group. We are nine principles of the Universe, yet together we are one."

The conspiracy laid out by Picknett and Prince runs very deep and involves groups such as the ARE, SRI International, the Esalen Institute, the Christic Institute, the Institute of Noetic Sciences, the CIA, and even NASA and the UN, and is much too complicated to explore at length here. Let us just say that the predictions from The Nine are very apocalyptic in nature and involve themes such as extra-terrestrial contact, spiritual evolution, and a transition into the New Age. Picknett and Prince also write how they involve certain expected discoveries in Egypt: "Tom himself allegedly the god Atum is emphatic about the importance of the monuments of Giza, in particular the Great Pyramid, but he has refused repeatedly to be drawn on its purpose, saying only that this will be revealed when the landing has happened. However, when asked by Puharich if there were undiscovered chambers in the Great Pyramid, he replied, 'To a degree,' adding, 'The entrance is from the Sphinx'. [36]

Picknett and Prince also mention the independent investigations in 1999 of a one-time associate of Richard C. Hoagland that ties in perfectly with what we can expect if the premise of this study, The Giza Discovery, is correct: "One particularly lurid story was recently posted on the Internet by the independent American researcher Larry Dean Hunter who, as we have seen, investigated claims of tunneling in Davison's Chamber on behalf of Richard Hoagland... It claimed that a massive, 250-foot high chamber had been found inside the Great Pyramid. This they call the Hall of Osiris, which they claim leads to another chamber in which lies the body of the god Osiris himself." [37]

Conclusion According to the Bible there are only a few prophecies that must be fulfilled prior to the beginning of the Apocalypse, that period of judgment often referred to as the "Day of the Lord." One of these predictions involves the "revealing" of the Antichrist: "Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until ... the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God." (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4) This study has presented evidence that the ancient figure worshiped as Osiris was in fact the Biblical King Nimrod. According to the ancient Egyptians he was the very first human being to undergo the process of mummification, and now we know why. Ever since the death of Nimrod his soul has been kept in the Abyss (Hell), while his body has been preserved intact somewhere within, or under, the Giza Necropolis, perhaps within the Great Pyramid itself. One day in the future the Abyss will be opened, which will allow the soul of Nimrod to be returned to its body, and the Antichrist will be resurrected to play his part as the ruler of the final global empire prior to the return of Jesus Christ.

According to the passage above from the Apostle Paul the "Day of the Lord" will not come until the Antichrist is revealed. The book of Revelation is clear that the "Day of the Lord" will begin shortly after the sixth Seal is opened, while the Abyss is opened after the Day of the Lord and after the seven Seals are opened, as a result of the fifth Trumpet. What this means is that the Antichrist will be "revealed" prior to his resurrection. In other words, the Antichrist will be "revealed" while he is still dead and he will first be a harmless corpse that all of the world will be able to see.

But when can we expect the body of Osiris to be revealed? The Biblical evidence suggests that this is an event that is outside of human control. The location of the body of Osiris may already be known, but there are still other factors that prohibit the "revealing" of it to the world. In Part Two there were two Coffin Texts referred to, that date to the Middle Kingdom period of ancient Egypt, that suggest that the physical remains, or efflux, of the body of Osiris is supernaturally protected: "This is the sealed thing which is in darkness, with fire about it, which contains the efflux of Osiris, and it was put in Rostau. It has been hidden there since it fell from him, and it is what came down from him onto the desert sand; it means that what belongs to him (his body) was put in Rostau..." Coffin Texts Spell 1080 "This is the word which is in darkness. As for any spirit who knows it, he will live among the living. Fire is about it, which contains the efflux of Osiris. As for any man who shall know it, he will never perish there, since he knows what shall be in Rostau. Rostau is hidden since he fell there... Rostau is (another name) for Osiris..." (Coffin Texts Spell 1087) [38]

These references to a strange "fire" that protects the efflux of Osiris may in fact be something that the Apostle Paul mentioned regarding a "restrainer" that stands in the way of the "revealing" of the Antichrist: "Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed... And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way." (2 Thessalonians 2:3-7) A similar "restrainer" was put in charge of the entrance to the Garden of Eden after Adam and Eve were banished from it: "So the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life." (Genesis 3:23-24) The enigmatic "restrainer" that prevents the "revealing" of the Antichrist could very well be a guardian cherubim who protects the body of Osiris with fire, as mentioned in the Coffin Texts of ancient Egypt. When he is taken out of the way, at a time of the Lord's own choosing, then the body of Osiris will be revealed to the world. Some time after that the Day of the Lord will begin with the shaking of the earth and the Rapture of the saints, and afterwards only then will the Abyss be opened which will allow for the soul of the Antichrist to re-inhabit his body, and the Antichrist will be brought to life: "One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was astonished and followed the beast. Men worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, 'Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?'" (Revelation 13:3-4) "Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon. He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666." (Revelation 13:11-18) The appearance of the Antichrist will be used to separate humanity on the basis of their acceptance or rejection of the Creator of the universe. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Creator in human flesh, and all who put their faith in Him will be saved. The Antichrist is the son of Satan and all who allow themselves to be deceived by him will be destroyed. There will be no middle ground and everyone will have to make a choice between these two Messiahs-between the True and the False. The Apostle Paul makes the purpose of appearance of the Antichrist perfectly clear: "And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because from the beginning God chose you to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word." (2 Thessalonians 2:8-17) The New Age will dawn, but it will not come without God's judgment upon an unrepentant humanity. God is indeed the ultimate Destroyer, but his intention is that you will repent, accept the sacrifice of Jesus Christ as payment for your sins, and thereby be saved! On the other hand, Satan says that he wants to save you and empower you into godhood, but he lies, as he has lied from the very beginning. Satan does not want to save you, he wants to see you destroyed! That is Satan's intention, and it is the very opposite of the intention of the God who created you and loves you. God is merciful in that He gave us a way out, but the choice to take it remains ours. He cannot and will not make that choice for us, for a universe without choice is a mechanical universe without love. Freedom of choice is necessary. Freedom to love, or to reject love is also necessary. And Justice is necessary, because a universe without consequences is inevitably a universe without any meaningful choices. Please choose the God of Love and Truth and reject that wicked lying shadow of Hatred and Lies, no matter how much his message appeals to your pride and to your selfish aspirations. The true New Age awaits and it will be glorious beyond comprehension, just as Paul says in 1 Corinthians 2:9, quoting from the prophet Isaiah, "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him."
