The Eye of Enlightenment –
What’s your view of the founding of the United States of America? Were the founding fathers Christians who set out to establish a truly Christian nation? Or were our founders men of the enlightenment who saw Judeo-Christian principles as valuable but only in the context of a non-personal God?
In his latest extravaganza Thomas Horn and a cast of respected contributors dive Deep into the subject of America, its complex beginnings, its sobering present, and its dream of a utopian future. This book is jam packed with information which runs the gambit from strong Biblical truth, to insightful history, and in some cases what I believe to be well meaning but unsupported speculation.
What I liked:
• Mr. Horns exploration of the claim that America was founded as a Christian nation
• Mr. Horn’s insightful examination of our founder’s appreciation for Judeo-Christian principles juxtaposed with the reality of their view of god.
• Mr. Horn’s exploration of America’s national symbols
• Carl Gallup’s chapter exploring the subject of Nationalism vs. Globalism
• Derrick Gilbert’s chapter on Dominionism
• Allie Andersons chapter on If My People…
What I didn’t like or at least though needed a more thorough explanation:
• After reading several of Mr. Horn’s books this book follows the challenging pattern of presenting so much information that it is hard to determine when the reasonable facts ends and well-meaning speculation begins.
• There is repetition to the book which doesn’t really help clarify the overall theme of the book.
In the spirit respectful criticism I have a friendly bone to pick with Mr. Horn’s negative view of the number 13 which I believe creates a blind spot in his work. His perspective shadows a spiritual dimension which was reflected in early years of our nation’s founding. Let me give you an example from p. 245 of the book:
•“But according to esotericists like Hall, the extraordinary truth about he number thirteen so affixed ot the Great Seal was a marker for those who understood it as a Masonic “power number,” sacred to the moon and representative of the head of Isis, as well as the number of Osiris’ remaining body parts Isis recovered along the Nile River (fourteen total; the male reproductive organ was never found, equaling thirteen). This is, of course, not even taking into consideration what numerology Biblical scholars might reveal.”
After prejudicing the discussion of the number 13 with what one of the “Saboteurs” believes, Mr. Horn goes onto give several more negative examples of the number 13 as found in the Bible. Such as 13 famines and that Satan’s name in both Hebrew and Greek is a multiple of 13. Mr. Horn finish his assassination of the number 13 by quoting the great Biblical scholar and numerologist E. W. Bullinger from his book Number in Scripture. This famous quote explains how the first usage of the number 13 in the Bible is related to the year a group of kings rebelled.
But here is where Mr. Horn prejudices the information so that it supports his theory concerning the number 13. Mr. Bullinger’s explanation of the number 13 doesn’t end with it as a number of only rebellion. The following passage comes from page 228 in Number in Scripture just a few pages after the quote Mr. Horn uses in his book:
“The Connection of the Number Thirteen with Substitution and Atonement
The Saviour, though without sin, was “made sin,” or a sin offering, for His people. He was “wounded for our transgressions,” and bruised for their iniquities. He was, in fact, “NUMBERED WITH THE TRANSGRESSORS” (Isa. liii. 12).
Therefore this number is not only the all-pervading factor of SIN, but also of sin’s atonement. It is not only the number which brands the sinner as a rebel against God, but it is the number borne by the sinner’s Substitute.
His very names in the Old Testament, before the work of Atonement was entered on or accomplished, are all multiples of 13, just as His names, afterwards in the New Testament and when the work of Atonement was carried out, are all multiples of 8. See the names on p. 204.
The Old Testament names are:-
Jehovah = 26(13×2)
Adonai = 65 (13×5)
Ha-Elohim = 91 (13×7)”
As you can see Mr. Horn only presented one side of the number 13. The very names of God including – YHWH – as found over 6500 times in the Bible is a multiple of the number 13. But this symbolism of atonement for sin is even more apparent in the New Testament. We need to look no further than the first chapter of the first book of the New Testament.
Here the apostle Matthew gives the opening salvo in his case for Yeshua (Jesus) as the Jewish Messiah. Matthew provides his readers with a lineage of the Messiah which exceptional in the Biblical record. This lineage is grouped generationally into three groups of 14 generations but with an amazing twist. You see while Matthew presented Yeshua’s generations as 14+14+14 if you actually count out the names Matthew cleverly arranges it so Yeshua is actually the 13th generation. This makes the lineage of Yeshua not 42 names (14+14+14) but rather 41 names (14+14+13) (41 also being the 13th prime).
Think about it this way. Mathew presented Yeshua as the 13th generation, the atonement sacrifice for sin. But by His death and resurrection, he became the 14th the risen Savior and future ruling king. Keep in mind also that in Matthew’s list king David is the 14 generation in the first generational grouping. Thus we have the fulfillment of this famous prophecy the angel gave to Mary:
“And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: (Luke 1:30-32)”
But the symbolism of Yeshua as the 13th and 14 generation has an even more important relationship to Mr. Horn’s thesis cornering the Great Seal of the United States. I quote from page 263 of Saboteurs:
“In the New Testament, the identity of the god Apollo, repeat-coded in the Great Seal of the United States as the Masonic “messiah” who returns to rule the earth, is the same spirit – verified by the same name – that will inhabit the political leader of the end-times New World Order.”
To get the full picture here you must remember the one symbol that Yeshua most often used to refer to himself. He described Himself as the “stone” refused by the builders which then miraculously becomes the “head of the corner”. Yeshua’s quote comes from Psalms 118:22. Taking in its most literal sense the only geometric shape which totally satisfies the criteria of “head, top or summit” of the corner is a capstone of a pyramid.
Psalm 118:21-23 – I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation. The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. This is the YHWH’S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.
Indeed this is the very symbolic description that the apostle Paul mentions in Ephsians 2:21 when he describes Yeshua as the “chief corner stone” under which the entire building is “fitly framed together” as a “holy temple in the Lord”.
Ephesians 2:20-22 – And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Now consider Great Seal once again with this Biblical foundation. If Mr. Horn’s interpretation of the Great Seal is correct then there is reasonable Biblical evidence to suggest that in fact there is an “Anti-Christ” symbolism encoded in the Seal. We have a pyramid of 13 levels and the Capstone (the 14th level) representing the Masonic eye of enlightenment, their god Osirus whose body was cut in to 13/14 parts.
Further supporting Mr. Horns view of the Great Seal is the map of Washington D.C. created by French Freemason Pierre L’Enfant under the direction of George Washington. If you draw a line through US Capitol, the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial and you use this line as the base of a triangle. Then using New Hampshire Ave as the left side of that triangle and a similar line beginning at the US Capitol and continuing through Logan circle and across to Dupont circle you have a pyramid without a capstone centered on 16th Street and the White House. This pyramid according to L’Enfant’s original design is 13 city blocks from its base on the National Mall. The capstone, the 14th level, is enclosed by Logan and Dupont circles and its point where the sides meet at U and 16th street above them.
Now the only thing missing for this symbolism to be complete is the all seeing eye of Masonry. Take a close at the map just north of R street and east of 16th street. What you will see at that location is a building 130 feet high designed based upon the ancient Mausoleum at Halicarnassus. The roof of this building is 13 levels, which from ground looks like an unfinished pyramid. When viewed from a higher elevation you’ll find it is capped with 14th level glass capstone.
This building is called the House of the Temple and is home to the The Supreme Council, 33 degree Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. Not too subtle are they.
So before you discount all of Mr. Horn’s thoughts on Freemasonry and the founding of our new nation, consider the implications of L’Enfant’s map of Washington DC which was commissioned in 1791 just 9 years after the Great Seal. It’s a map which shows a 13 level pyramid, only its capstone is not graced with the “All-Seeing Eye of Providence” but rather the headquarters of Scottish Rite Freemasonry.
The truth truly is stranger than fiction, no?
In summary, Saboteurs is shocking expose, heavy on conspiracy theory which could have been better grounded in a panoramic Biblical world view. There is a great deal of important information is this book but I’d encourage each reader to run down the facts for themselves. Filter out the unprovable conspiracies and hold fast to the those things which you can prove beyond a reasonable doubt.
