Default The Cloud upon the Sanctuary


The following work is the key to understanding the Illuminati. As it is written in Scripture, 'Satan himself is wont to transform himself into and angel of light. Therefore, it is no great wonder that his ministers do the same.'

Now Jesus Christ is the Light of the world. And it is Jesus Christ who can enlighten every man with the true light, as John Apostle writes in his gospel. Yet, Satan's minister's ever exchange truth for a lie. They exchange light for darkness. They call darkness light and light darkness.

Therefore, the reader may understand how the Luciferian Illuminati came to be. It is the purest form of diabolical mimicry. It is to such a point as Christ Jesus described: Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheeps clothing, yet within they are ravening wolfs. These may even claim to be Christians and to follow Christ. You judge by fruits. And the fruit of a teacher or prophet is his teaching and prophecy. And any one who does not abide in the doctrine of the Christ is without God, nor does he speak with the Spirit of God.

Aleister Crowley changed the words and meanings of Eckartshausen's work for the Thelemic apostasy. Crowley changed himself into the Light of the World in place of Jesus Christ. Be that as it may, Eckartshausen has written a fairly helpful work here descripting the one true Church of Christ. It's nature is not that of a secret society, although it is the most secret in the world. This is not because it would be kept secret, but because it is tightly gripped by the ungodly. Still, the gospel of Christ cannot be hidden.

The only proper and true 'Illuminati' (Sons of the Light) are elect Christians by their own freewill, baptized, and sealed with the Holy Spirit of Promise. I commend you to Eckartshausen's works. I advise that you ignore wholly any commentary on the work. Most of the commentary given on the Cloud upon the Sanctuary is given by Antichrist Gnostics of the Rosicrusian, Theosophist, Thelemic, or Illuminati orders. They are in fact the 'clouds' (a veil of fog) upon the Sanctuary of Christ.

After reading the contents of Letter II, the student should read the NT epistles of I Corinthians, Ephesians, and Colosians. Hebrews 12 is paramount to understanding Eckartshausen's thesis as well. I hope that this is helpful in your enlightenment in Jesus Christ, crucified under Pontius Pilute, risen from the dead on the third day, and seated at the right hand of God the Father to this day.

[For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. While they are saying, 'Peace and safety!' then destruction will come upon them suddenly like birth pangs upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day should overtake you like a thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of the night nor of the darkness; so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober. For those who sleep do their sleeping at night, and those who get drunk get drunk at night. But since we are of the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope of salvation. For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with Him." (1 Thessalonians 5:1-11).]

The Cloud Upon the Sanctuary
By Karl von Eckartshausen
----------------------------

Letter II

IT IS NECESSARY, my dear brothers in the Lord, to give you a clear idea of the interior Church; of that illuminated Community of God which is scattered throughout the world, but which is governed by one truth and united in one spirit.

This enlightened community has existed since the first day of the world's creation, and its duration will be to the last day of time.

This community possesses a School, in which all who thirst for knowledge are instructed by the Spirit of Wisdom itself; and all the mysteries of God and of nature are preserved in this School for the children of light. . . . Perfect knowledge of God, of nature, and of humanity are the objects of instruction in this school. It is from her that all truths penetrate into the world, she is the School of Prophets, and of all who search for wisdom, and it is in this community alone that truth and the explanation of all mystery is to be found. It is the most hidden of communities yet possesses members from many circles; of such is this School. From all time there has been an exterior school based on the interior one, of which it is but the outer expression. From all time, therefore, there has been a hidden assembly, a society of the Elect, of those who sought for and had capacity for light, and this interior society was called the interior Sanctuary or Church. All that the external Church possesses in symbol, ceremony or rite is the letter expressive outwardly of the spirit of truth residing in the interior Sanctuary.

Hence this Sanctuary composed of scattered members, but tied by the bonds of perfect unity and love, has been occupied from the earliest ages in building the grand Temple through the regeneration of humanity, by which the reign of God will be manifest. This society is in the communion of those who have most capacity for light, i.e. the Elect. The Elect are united in truth, and their Chief is the Light of the World himself, Jesus Christ, the One Anointed in light, the single mediator for the human race, the Way, the Truth, and the Life—Primitive light, wisdom, and the only medium by which man can return to God.

The interior Church was formed immediately after the fall of man, and received from God at first-hand the revelation of the means by which fallen humanity could be again raised to its rights and delivered from its misery. It received the primitive charge of all revelation and mystery; it received the key of true science, both divine and natural.

But when men multiplied, the frailty of man and his weakness necessitated an exterior society which veiled the interior one, and concealed the spirit and the truth in the letter. Because many people were not capable of comprehending great interior truth, and the danger would have been too great in confiding the most Holy to incapable people. Therefore, interior truths were wrapped in external and perceptible ceremonies, so that men, by the perception of the outer, which is the symbol of the interior, might by degrees be enabled safely to approach the interior spiritual truths.

But the inner truth has always been confided to him who in his day had the most capacity for illumination, and he became the sole guardina of the original Trust, as High Priest of the Sanctuary.

When it became necessary that interior truths should be enfolded in exterior ceremony and symbol, on account of the real weakness of men who were not capable of bearing the Light of Light, then exterior worship began. It was, however, always the type or symbol of the interior, that is to say, the symbol of the true homage offered to God in spirit and in truth.

The difference between spiritual and animal man, and between rational and sensual man, made the exterior and interior imperative. Interior truth passed into the external wrapped in symbol and ceremony, so that sensuous man could observe, and be gradually thereby led to interior truth. Hence external worship was symbolically typical of interior truths, and of the true relationship between man and God before and after the Fall, and of his most perfect reconciliation. All the symbols of external worship are based upon the three fundamental relations—the Fall, the Reconciliation, and the Complete Atonement.

The care of the external service was the occupation of priests, and every father of a family was in the ancient times charged with this duty. First fruits and the first born among animals were offered to God, symbolizing that all that preserves and nourishes us comes from Him; also that animal man must be killed to make room for rational and spiritual man.

The external worship of God would never have been separated from interior service but for the weakness of man which tends too easily to forget the spirit in the letter, but the spirit of God is vigilant to note in every nation those who are able to receive light, and they are employed as agents to spread the light according to man's capacity, and to revivify the dead letter.

Through these divine instruments the interior truths of the Sanctuary were taken into every nation, and modified symbolically according to their customs, capacity for instruction, climate, and receptiveness. So that the external types of every religion, worship, ceremonies and Sacred Books in general have more or less clearly, as their object of instruction, the interior truths of the Sanctuary by which man, but only in the latter days, will be conducted to the universal knowledge of the one Absolute Truth.

The more the external worship of a people has remained united with the spirit of esoteric truth, the purer its religion; but the wider the difference between the symbolic letter and the invisible truth, the more imperfect has become the religion; even so far among some nations as to degenerate into polytheism. Then the external form entirely parted from its inner truth, when ceremonial observances without soul or life remained alone.

When the germs of the most imporant truths had been carried everywhere by God's agents, He chose a certain people to raise up a vital symbol destined by Him to manifest forth the means by which He intended to govern the human rase in its present condition, and by which it would be raised into complete purification and perfection.

God Himself communicated to this people all its exterior religious legislation, He gave all the symbols and enacted all the ceremonies, and they contained the impress, as it were, of the great esoteric truth of the Sanctuary.

God consecrated this external Church in Abraham, gave commandments through Moses, and it received its highest perfection in the double message of Jesus Christ, existing personally in poverty and suffering, and by the communication of His Spirit in the glory of the Resurrection.

Now, as God Himself laid the foundation of the external Church, the whole of the symbols of external worship formed the science of the Temple and of the Priests in those days, because the mysteries of the most sacred truths became external through revalation alone. The scientific acquaintance of this holy symbolism was the science to unite fallen man once more with God, hence religion received its name from being the science of rebinding man with God. to bring man back to his origin.

One sees plainly by this pure idea of religion in general that unity in religion is within the inner Sanctuary, and that the multiplicity of external religions can never alter the true unity which is at the base of every exterior.

The wisdom of the ancient temple alliance was preserved by priests and by prophets.

To the priests was confided the external,—the letter of the symbol, hieroglpyhics. The prophets had the charge of the inner truth, and their occupation was to continually recall the priest to the spirit in the letter, when inclined to lose it. The science of the priests was that of the knowledge of external symbols.

That of the prophets was experimental possession of the truth of the symbols. In the interior the spirit lived. There was, therefore, in the ancient alliance a school of prophets and of priests, the one occupying itself with the spirit in the emblem, the other with the emblem itself. The priests had the external possession of the Ark, of the shewbread, of the candlesticks, of the manna, of Aaron's rod, and the prophets were in possession of the inner spiritual truth which was represented exteriorly by the symbols just mentioned.

The external Chruch of the ancient alliance was visible, the interior Church was always invisible, must be invisible, and yet must govern all, because force and power are alone confided to her.

When the divine external worship abandoned the interior worship, it fell, and God proved by a remarkable chain of circumstances that the letter could not exist without the spirit, that it is only there to lead to the spirit, and it is useless and even rejected by God if it fails in its object.

As the spirit of nature extends to the most sterile depths to vivify and preserve and cause growth in everything susceptible to its influence, likewise the spirit of light spreads itself interiorly among nations to animate everywhere the dead letter by the living spirit.

This is why we find a Job among idolators, a Melchizedek among strange nations, a Joseph with the Egyptian priests, a Moses in the country of Midian, as living proofs the interior community of those who are capable receiving light was united by one spirit and one truth in all times and in all nations.

To these agents of light from the one inner community was united the Chief of all agents, Jesus Christ Himself, in the midst of time as a royal prince after the order of Melchizedek.

The divine agents of the ancient alliance hitherto represented only specialised perfections of God; therefore a powerful movement was required which should show all at once—all in one. A universal type appeared, which gave the real touch of perfect unity to the picture, which opened a fresh door, and destroyed the numnber of the slavery of humanity.

The law of love began when the image emanating from wisdom itself showed to man all the greatness of his being, vivifed him anew, assured him of his immortality, and raised his intellectual status to that of being the true temple for the spirit.

This Chief Agent of all, this Saviour of the World and universal Regenerator, claimed man's whole attention to the primitive truth, whereby he can preserve his existence and recover his former dignity. Through the conditions of His own abasement He laid the base of the redemption of man, and He promised to accomplish it completely one day through His Spirit. He showed also truly in part among His apostles all that should come to pass in future to all the Elect.

He linked the chain of the community of light among the Elect, to whom He sent the spirit of truth, and confided to them the true primitive instruction in all divine and natural things, as a sign that He would never forsake His community.

When the letter and symbolic worship of the external Church of the ancient alliance had been realised by the Incarnation of the Saviour, and verified in His person, new symbols became requisite for external use, which showed us through the letter the future accomplishment of universal redemption.

The rites and symbols of the external Christian Church were formed after the pattern of these unchangeable and fundamental truths, announcing things of a strength and of an importance impossible to describe, and revealed only to those who knew the innermost Sanctuary.

This Sanctuary remains changeless, though external religion receives in the course of time and circumstance varied modification, entailing separation from the interior spirit which can alone preserve the letter. The profane idea of wishing to "secularize" all that is Christian, and to Christianize all that is political, changed the exterior edifice, and covered with the shadow of death all that was interior light and life. Hence divisions and heresies, and the spirit of Sophistry ready to expound the letter when it had already lost the essence of truth.

Current incredulity increased corruption to its utmost point, attacking the edifice of Christianity in its fundamental parts, and the sacred interior was mingled with the exterior, already enfeebled by the ignorance of weak man.

Then was born Deism; this brought forth materialism, which looked on the union of man with superior forces as imaginary; then finally came forth, partly from the head and partly from the heart, the last degree of man's degradation—Atheism.

In the midst of all this, truth reposes inviolable in the inner Sanctuary.

Faithful to the spirit of truth, which promised never to abandon its community, the members of the interior Church lived in silence, but in real activity, and united the science of the temple of the ancient alliance with the spirit of the great saviour of man—the spirit of the interior alliance, waiting humbly the great moment when the Lord will call them, and will assemble his community in order to give every dead letter external force and life.

This interior community of light is the reunion of all those capable of receiving light as Elect, and it is known as the Communion of Saints. The primitive receptacle for all strength and truth, confided to it from all time—it alone, says St. Paul, is in the possession of the science of the Saints.

By it the agents of God were formed in every age, passing from the interior to the exterior, and communicating spirit and life to the dead letter as already said.

This illuminated community has been throughout time the true school of God's spirit, and considered as a school, it has its Chair, its Doctor, it possesses a rule for students, it has forms and objects for study, and, in short, a method by which they study.

It has, also, its degrees for successive development to higher altitudes.

The first and lowest degree consists in the moral good, by which the single will, subordinated to God, is led to God by the pure motive of willing with and to Jesus Christ, which it does through faith. The means by which the spirit of this school acts are called inspirations.

The second degree consists in the rational intellectuality, by which the understanding of the man of virtue, who is united to God, is crowned with wisdom and the light of knowledge, and the means which the spirit uses to produce this is called interior illumination.

The third and highest degree is the entire opening of our inner sensorium, by which the inner man perceives objectively and really, metaphysical verities. This is the highest degree when faith passes into open vision, and the means the spirit uses for this are real visions.

These are the three degrees of the school for true interior wisdom—that of the Illuminated Society. The same spirit which ripens men for this community also distributes its degrees by the co-action of the ripened subject.

This school of wisdom has been forever most secretly hidden from the world, because it is invisible and submissive solely to divine government.

It has never been exposed to the accidents of time and to the weakness of man. Because only the most capable were chosen for it, and the spirits who selected made no error.

Through this school were developed the germs of all the sublime sciences, which were first received by external schools, then clothed in other forms, and hence degenerating.

This society of sages communicated, according to time and circumstances, unto the exterior societies their symbolic hieroglyphs, in order to attract men to the great truths of their interior.

But all exterior societies subsist through this interior one giving them its spirit. As soon as external societies wish to be independent of the interior one, and to transform a temple of wisdom into a political edifice, the interior society retires and leaves only the letter without the spirit. It is thus that secret external societies of wisdom were nothing but hieroglyphic screens, the truth remaining inviolable in the sanctuary so that she might never be profaned.

In this interior society man finds wisdom and with her—All—not the wisdom of this world which is but scientific knowledge, which revolves around the outside but never touches the centre (in which is contained all strength), but true wisdom and men obeying her.

All disputes, all controversies, all the things belonging to the false cares of this world, fruitless discussions, useless germs of opinions which spread the seeds of disunion, all error, schisms, and systems are banished. Neither calumny nor scandal are known. Every man is honoured. Satire, that spirit which loves to make its neighbour smart, is unknown. Love alone reigns.

Want and feebleness are protected, and rejoicings are made at the elevation and greatness which man acquires.

We must not, however, imagine this society resembles any secret society, meeting at certain times, choosing its leaders and members, united by speical objects. All societies, be what they may, can but come after this interior illuminated circle. This society knows none of the formalities which belong to the outer rings, the work of man. In this kingdom of power all outward forms cease.

God himself is the Power always present. The best man of his times, the chief himself, does not always know all the members, but the moment when it is the Will of God that he should accomplish any object, he finds them in the world with certainty to work for that purpose.

This community has no outside barriers. He who may be chosen by God is as the first, he presents himself among the others without presumption, and he is received by the others without jealousy.

If it be necessary that real members should meet together, they find and recognise each other with perfect certainty.

No disguise can be used, neither hypocrisy nor dissimulation could hide the characteristic qualities of this society, they are too genuine. All illusion is gone, and things appear in their true form.

No one member can choose another, unanimous choice is required. All men are called, the called may be chosen, if they become ripe for entrance.

Any one can look for the entrance, and any man who is within can teach another to seek for it; but only he who is fit can arrive inside.

Unprepared men occasion disorder in a community, and disorder is not compatible with the Sanctuary. This thrusts out all who are not homogeneous.

Worldly intelligence seeks this Sanctuary in vain, fruitless also will be the efforts of malice to penetrate these great mysteries; all is undecipherable to him who is not ripe, he can see nothing, read nothing in the interior.

He who is ripe is joined to the chain, perhaps often where he thought least likely, and at a point of which he knew nothing himself.

Seeking to become ripe, should be effort of him who seeks wisdom.

But there are methods by which ripeness is attained, for in this holy communion is the primitive storehouse of the most ancient and original science of the human race, with the primitive mysteries also of all science. It is the unique and really illuminated community which is absolutely in possession of the key to all mystery, which knows the centre and source of all nature and creation. It is a society which unites superior strength to its own, and counts its members from more than one world. It is the society whose members form a theocratic republic, which one day will be the Regent Mother of the whole World.

Ripe and ready for juicing! Hahah...

So far, it seems that no one can see past this. It is but ANOTHER veil.

The "insular rings" style of organization is not the paradigm given for the body of Christ. There is no secret inner circle in the Kingdom of God, after the manner of occult organizations.
There is, however, the requirement to keep secrets or certain information confidential, but that does not constitute an inner sanctum in the church.
Jesus said that not everyone was ready for the inner teachings; he did not give the deeper revelations to those who were not prepared for them - this is a matter of spiritual maturity and individual relationship with God (i.e. Rema).

It is true that there are no physically manifested insuler rings within the body of Christ. Yet notice carefully that Eckartshausen also states that the Ancient Alliance, or Church of the Living God must not be thought of as a normal secret society, meeting at certain times, and having hierarchies.

No. This is not his point. The Church of God is governed solely by Christ himself. It is Christ who makes the choices. Each in the body of Christ has a certain work appointed to him based upon the talents given. This is not a physical appointment based on any governing body in this world.

The members of the elect are subject only to divine providence. There is the earthly manifest church on this earth. Yet Christ was clear that this was the the mixed multitude. It has both tares and wheat. This is not the church Eckartshausen speaks of. He speaks of the inner assembly of the elect of Christ. And there really is such a thing.

The baptized, believing Christian has been raised up to heavenly places with Christ. He is seated within the veil, in the Holy of Holies. Not the physical temple which was only the outward representation. We have an altar that those who serve temples have no right to partake of.

This is the church of the first born enrolled in heavenly places, just as Hebrews 12 states.

Eckartshausen's 'High Priest' should not be seen as a physcial office of a physically manifested secret society such as those who falsely call themselves 'Illuminati'. This deals solely with the idea of function and endowments given by the Holy Spirit of the Living God. It is a spiritual idea. For in the Spirit, Christ has made us a kingdom of Priests to God, as Revelation states.

Eckartshausen's words are true. Yet, even as he states, those outside the veil simply will not understand what he is talking about.

The student must totally separate himself from the idea of a manifested secret society such as a manifested church building, Freemasonry, Illuminati, etc... The inner church of Christ does not function outwardly in this way.

Many are called, few are chosen. But faith really can move mountains. This is the true Mount Zion in heaven, not on earth. This is the Kingdom of God. It is not from this earth, nor does it obey the ways and means of societies on this earth.

Those in physical churches may or may not belong to the Church of the First Born in heaven. And it is in vain that any one should attempt diabolical mimicry of this body of the spirit. For the church of God is known solely by the Holy Spirit who has sealed the elect unto the day of salvation.

The following work is Aleister Crowley's attempt at mimicry. Crowley places himself (V.V.V.V.V.) as the light of the world in place of Jesus Christ. Carefully compare this work to Letter II of the Cloud upon the Sanctuary.

However, the student should be aware that this is more than simply a hoax of Crowley. What Crowley is doing here is actually fulfilling the prophecy of II Thess. 2:1-12. He is acting as 'antikemenos' (the Substitute, Pseudo-Messiah). Crowley office and function as Antichrist was real. The world has a difficult time understanding these planes because it has no real understanding of the Church of God's Elect. It has no real understanding of Christianity, therefore it has no real understanding of Satanism. It cannot possibly. Because without understanding the power of one, one cannot understand the power of the other.

That is why I, Frater Nothing, was sent to accomplish this task of destroying the Son of Perdition with the Spirit of the Mouth of Christ. It happened as Eckartshausen's work described it. I was chosen at a time and place where I thought least likely.

Yet, when one is doing the will of God upon earth, it matters not where one starts. Circumstance is irrelevant. Wealth, status, power are contemned as meaningless. It is the Omnipotent God who works. Therefore, it's fulfillment is assured. It is assured even in the unlikeliest of circumstances. There are no 'odds' in this work. Blind Fate is rendered null and void. For this works only by the Will and Power of the Holy Spirit of the Living God.

Moreover, when Frater N. claims to belong to that A.'.A.'. of God, that is the Ancient Alliance the church of Jesus Christ, he makes no jest. And that is why Frater N. was chosen for this work. It is not because Frater N. was a perfect Christian, not because of his own wisdom, not because of his strength or power, but only because the Holy Spirit accomplished his will.

AN ACCOUNT OF A.·. A.·.

IT is necessary, my dear brothers, to give you a clear idea of the interior Order; of that illuminated community which is scattered throughout the world, but which is governed by one truth and united in one spirit.

This community possesses a School, in which all who thirst for knowledge are instructed by the Spirit of Wisdom itself; and all the mysteries of nature are preserved in this school for the children of light. Perfect knowledge of nature and of humanity is taught in this school. It is from her that all truths penetrate into the world; she is the school of all who search for wisdom, and it is in this community alone that truth and the explantation of all mystery are to be found. It is the most hidden of communities, yet it contains members from many circles; nor is there any Centre of Thought whose activity is not due to the presence of one of ourselves. From all time there has been an exterior school based on the interior one, of which it is but the outer expression. From all time, therefore, there has been a hidden assembly, a society of the Elect, of those who sought for and had capacity for light, and this interior society was the Axle of the R.O.T.A. All that any external order possesses in symbol, ceremony, or rite is the letter expressive outwardly of that spirit of truth which dwelleth in the interior Sanctuary. Nor is the contradiction of the exterior any bar to the harmony of the interior.

Hence this Sanctuary, composed of members widely scattered indeed but united by the bonds of perfect love, has been occupied from the earliest ages in building the grand Temple (through the evolution of humanity) by which the reign of L.V.X. will be manifest. This society is in the communion of those who have most capacity for light; they are united in truth, and their Chief is the Light of the World himself, V.V.V.V.V., the One Anointed in Light, the single teacher for the human race, the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

The interior Order was formed immediately after the first perception of man's wider heritage had dawned upon the first of the adepts; it received from the Masters at first-hand the revelation of the means by which humanity could be raised to its rights and delivered from its misery. It received the primitive charge of all revelation and mystery; it received the key of true science, both divine and natural.

But as men multiplied, the frailty of man necessitated an exterior society which veiled the interior one, and concealed the spirit and the truth in the letter, because many people were not capable of comprehending great interior truth. Therefore, interior truths were wrapped in external and perceptible ceremonies, so that men, by the perception of the outer which is the symbol of the interior, might by degrees be enabled safely to approach the interior spiritual truths.

But the inner truth has always been confided to him who in his day had the most capacity for illumination, and he became the sole guardian of the original Trust, as High Priest of the Sanctuary.

When it became necessary that interior truths should be enfolded in exterior ceremony and symbol, on account of the real weakness of men who were not capable of hearing the Light of Light, then exterior worship began. It was, however, always the type or symbol of the interior, that is to say, the symbol of the true and Secret Sacrament.

The external worship would never have been separated from interior revel but for the weakness of man, which tends too easily to forget the spirit in the letter; but the Masters are vigilant to note in every nation those who are able to receive light, and such persons are employed as agents to spread the light according to man's capacity and to revivify the dead letter.

Through these instruments the interior truths of the Sanctuary were taken into every nation, and modified symbolically according to their customs, capacity for instruction, climate, and receptiveness. So that the external types of every religion, worship, ceremonies and Sacred Books in general have more or less clearly, as their object of instruction, the interior truths of the Sanctuary, by which man will be conducted to the universal knowledge of the one Absolute Truth.

The more the external worship of a people has remained united with the spirit of esoteric truth, the purer its religion; but the wider the difference between the symbolic letter and the invisible truth, the more imperfect has become the religion. Finally, it may be, the external form has entirely parted from its inner truth, so that ceremonial observances without soul or life have remained alone.

In the midst of all this, truth reposes inviolable in the inner Sanctuary.

Faithful to the spirit of truth, the members of the interior Order live in silence, but in real activity.

Yet, besides their secret holy work, they have from time to time decided upon political strategic action.

Thus, when the earth was night utterly corrupt by reason of the Great Sorcery, the Brethren sent Mohammed to bring freedom to mankind by the sword.

This being but partially a success, they raised up one Luther to teach freedom of thought. Yet this freedom soon turned into a heavier bondage than before.

Then the Brethren delivered unto man the knowledge of nature, and the keys thereof; yet this also was prevented by the Great Sorcery.

Now then finally in nameless ways, as one of our Brethren hath it now in mind to declare, have they raised up One to deliver unto men the keys of Spiritual Knowledge, and by His work shall He be judged.

This interior community of light is the reunion of all those capable of receiving light, and it is known as the Communion of Saints, the primitive receptacle for all strength and truth, confided to it from all time.

By it the agents of L.V.X. were formed in every age, passing from the interior to the exterior, and communicating spiritand life to the dead letter, as already said.

This illuminated community is the true school of L.V.X.; it has its Chair, its Doctors; it possesses a rule for students; it has forms and objects for study.

It has also its degrees for successive develo˙ment to greater altitudes.

This school of wisdom has been for ever most secretly hidden from the world, because it is invisible and submissive solely to illuminated government.

It has never been exposed to the accidents of time and to the weakness of man, because only the most capable were chosen for it, and those who selected made no error.

Through this school were developed the germs of all the sublime sciences, which were first received by external schools, then clothed in other forms, and hence degenerated.

According to time and circumstances, the society of sages communicated unto the exterior societies their symbolic hieroglyphs, in order to attract man to the great truths of their Sanctuary.

But all exterior societies subsist only by virtue of this interior one. As soon as external societies wish to transform a temple of wisdom into a political edifice, the interior society retires and leaves only the letter without the spirit. It is thus that secret external societies of wisdom were nothing but hieroglyphic screens, the truth remaining inviolable in the Sanctuary so that she might never be profaned.

In this interior society man finds wisdom and with her All--- not the wisdom of this world, which is but scientific knowledge, which revolves round the outside but never touches the centre (in which is contained all strength), but true wisdom, understanding and knowledge, reflections of the supreme illumination.

All disputes, all controversies, all the things belonging to the false cares of this world, fruitless discussions, useless germs of opinions which spread the seeds of disunion, all error, schisms, and systems are banished. Neither calumny nor scandal is known. Every man is honoured. Love alone reigns.

We must not, however, imagine that this society resembles any secret society, meeting at certain times, choosing leaders and members, united by special objects. All societies, be what they may, can but come after this interior illuminated circle. This society knows none of the formalities which belong to the outer rings, the work of man. In this kingdom of power all outward forms cease.

L.V.X. is the Power always present. The greatest man of his times, the chief himself, does not always know all the members, but the moment when it is necessary that he should accomplish any object he finds them in the world with certainty ready to his hand.

This community has no outside barriers. He who may be chosen is as the first; he presents himself among the others without presumption, and he is received by the others without jealousy.

If it be necessary that real members should meet together, they find and recognize each other with perfect certainty.

No disguise can be used, neither hypocrisy nor dissimulation could hide the characteristic qualities which distinguish the members of this society. All illusion is gone, and things appear in their true form.

No one member can choose another; unanimous choice is required. Though not all men are called, many of called are chosen, and that as soon as they become fit for entrance.

Any man can look for the entrance, and any man who is within can teach another to seek for it; but only he who is fit can arrive within.

Unprepared men occasion disorder in a community, and disorder is not compatible with the Sanctuary. Thus it is impossible to profane the Sanctuary, since admission is not formal but real.

Worldly intelligence seeks this Sanctuary in vain; fruitless also will be the efforts of malice to penetrate these great mysteries; all is indecipherable to him who is not ripe; he can see nothing, read nothing in the interior.

He who is fit is joined to the chain, perhaps often where he though least likely, and at a point of which he knew nothing himself.

To become fit should be the sole effort of him who seeks wisdom.

But there are methods by which fitness is attained, for in this holy communion is the primitive storehouse of the most ancient and original science of the human race, with the primitive mysteries also of all science. It is the unique and really illuminated community which is absolutely in possession of the key to all mystery, which knows the centre and source of all nature. It is a society which unites superior strength to its own, and counts its members from more than one world. It is the society whose members form the republic of Genius, the Regent Mother of the whole World.

Read Rudolph Steiner for an understanding of the ST Earth age.

It might be helpful for the student to understand some of Steiner's thinking on the epochs or aeons of this world. Albeit, this must be done with one or three grains of salt.

Steiner's Theosophical writings are almost wholly in line with the occult tendencies of the 19th century. It is very Germanic in nature. Very gnostic. Still it is in line with the Neo-Platonist bent of this era.

For all that Steiner, Boehme, Blavatsky wrote, their works were simply bricks in a wall called Mysterium Iniquitatis.

As much as I rail against the eschatological doctrine of Dispensational Premillenialism, I must add that the high Protestant view of Reconstructionism (Postmillenialism) is as bad or worse.

The Theosophists mix a concoction of Manachean Gnosticism, Neo-Platonism, Hinduism, Luciferianism, and wrested, errant Biblical hermeneutics of eschatology to create an alchemical spiritual soup called Mysterium Iniquitatis. This was the forerunner to what Crowley finished.

The idea of Reconstructionism is that the world is slowly becomeing the Kingdom of God on earth. This was the thesis in Boehme's Aurora (or the Redness of the Morning).

The truth of the matter is that Steiner's 'Seal and Trumpet Age' is sheer goblty-gook. Sounds really wonderful, and it is in line with the eschatological bent of the times.

This was the great heresy of the Protestant movement. It was a logical progression based on a false premise; namely, if 1) the Pope was the Antichrist, and 2) the Protestants had restored and reformed primitive Christianity, then the church must be in a new era. One false concept led to another, and thus was born eschatological Reconstructionism.

The Bible neither teaches Premillenialism, nor does it teach an idea of Reconstructionism. These are doctrines born out of unstable and unlearned souls. Claiming to be wise, they have become fools.

The Bible teaches a progressive 'de-evolution' (real entropy, not evolution) of mankind before the Parousia of Christ. And there is no Reconstruction, Golden Dawn, or Reign of Christ on this earth. This earth is to be destroyed in real and actual fire that shall destroy the entirety of the elemental creation. Then there shall be real and actual New Heavens and a New Earth. This World is to be literally consigned to the flame.

The Mystery of Iniquity reached its zennith with Aleister Crowley. The Man of Sin has had his time. There is no Seal and Trumpet age to come as Steiner explains it. All has been accomplished. The only event left to occure is the Last Trump of the final judgement of the Great White Throne in Revelation chapter 20.

You can mark it down as a fact.

One more thing: Eckartsheusen himself was most probably a Reconstructionist. Hence his termenology: "Regent Mother of the whole world."

Be careful of Eckartsheusen. I gave this as a brief introduction to the church. Eckartsheusen has some good thoughts. Yet, it is my conviction, that even Eckartsheusen did not understand what he was talking about. Even worse, Eckartsheusen was most probably a Neo-Platonist at heart.

I have an aquantance who knows Frater N.

We are confederate with Frater N. in his cause to liberate the Dachians along with all mankind.

We must fight against the Scholomance in Transylvania. You might think of it as Hannabal vs. Scipio, except not.
