THE THREE BEARS
The Hermetic axiom "as above, so below" is the supreme principle governing the belief system and practices of the occult. Since man is a microcosm of the macrocosmos, whatever occurs in the heavens is regarded as the blueprint of the gods for man's activity on earth. Occultists strive to conform their pagan rituals, leading personages, sacred sites, occult objects and calendar of events to the heavenly blueprint as interpreted by their adepts and masters. These deluded souls believe that scrupulous attention to the Hermetic axiom, "as above, so below," will bring about the global transformation which Satan has promised them.
“This phrase comes from the beginning of 'The Emerald Tablet' and embraces the entire system of traditional and modern magick which was inscribed upon the tablet in cryptic wording by Hermes Trismegistus... The significance of this phrase is that it is believed to hold the key to all mysteries. All systems of magick are claimed to function by this formula. 'That which is above is the same as that which is below - macrocosmos is the same as microcosmos. The Universe is the same as God, God is the same as man, man is the same as the cell, the cell is the same as the atom, the atom is the same as … and so on, ad infinitum.'
“This message theorises that man is the counterpart of God on Earth; as God is man's counterpart in heaven. Therefore, it is a statement of an ancient belief that man's actions on Earth parallel the actions of God in heaven. This pivots on the belief that 'all things have their birth from this one thing by adaptation'...
“The purpose of all rituals in ceremonial magick is to unite the microcosm with the macrocosm to join God, or Gods when invoked, with human consciousness when such a supreme union is achieved the subject and object becomes one. This is because the magickian feels that he is consciously in touch with all elements of the Universe, therefore, he or she can control them. It may be said, the magickian feels connected with the Universe. This feeling intensifies the more the magickian successfully practices his or her skills. Whenever he experiences a failure, he or she knows that the ritual was not performed correctly.” (976)
Astrology is the Hermetic science of religiously modeling phenomena on the earth below to a pattern that exists in the heavens above. This accounts for the mythology of ancient pagan belief systems which depict an epic narrative of the ancient gods of Atlantis—the antediluvian civilization which God judged in Genesis 7—whose home was believed by pagan cultures to be in the stars. The pictures found today in the zodiac were not developed by the Greeks, but were in place perhaps as early as 4000 B.C. predating even the civilizations of Sumeria. False teachers such as D. James Kennedy, E.W. Bullinger, and Joseph Seiss have suggested that there is a Biblical message in the stars, viz., that the zodiac is a pictorial story of God's plan of salvation on earth. Yet Kennedy et al blow their cover when they identify the key to understanding the celestial zodiac as found in ancient depictions of the Great Sphinx of Egypt.
But he shall not...cause the people to return to Egypt...forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way. Deut. 17:16
Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD! Isaiah 31:1
The most important of the stellar constellations is Ursa Major, the Great Bear. From time immemorial it seems that star worshippers revered the bear as a god, probably applying the Hermetic axiom in their religious life. As previously mentioned, the Magdalenian Era was noted for its cave paintings, particularly in North Spain and the Southwest of France. The bear god was worshipped in this area of France which later became the Languedoc, the legendary abode of Mary Magdalene.
“Archeaologists have found carvings and cave paintings of Bears at Drachenloch Caves, in Switzerland. Neanderthal man revered the Bear back as far as 70,000 years ago. In the Lascaux caves, in France, we find bear art back to 17,000 B.C. A sixth-century altar dedicated to the bear god, Aedeche, is found in the French town of St. Pé d'Ardet—the Vallée de l'Ourse—not far from Lourdes. Many ancient cultures wore Bear skins with the head still attached to try to become Bear. Joseph Campbell claims that Bear Cults and Clans are older than shamanism.” (978)
To the present day, the area of Southwest France which borders Spain and Andorra has preserved its prehistoric caves, medieval castles and cities, and even displays the bear as its emblem.
"...River Ariège which is in the heart of the Pyrénées close to the border with Spain and Andorra and it has breathtaking scenery, prehistoric caves, medieval castles. The emblem of the region is the bear." (981)
King Arthur of the Celtic legend—who in real life was Clovis I, the first Frankish monarch—was the earthly representation of the Great Bear constellation. Since Arthur means bear, this legend appears to have derived from the ancient worship of the bear:
“The Celts had two goddesses that took the form of the Bear: Andarta ('powerful bear') and Artio. In other cultures there are the bear god Artaois, Ardeche, or Arthe. Their names are both from 'Art' which means 'Bear, stone, or God.' There are also many place names called Artos or Arth. Images of the god Artio have been found in Berne (Bear City), Switzerland, which has its 'den of bears' which was used by the Bear cultists. King Arthur (a form of Artios or Artiaus, a great god of antiquity) is associated with Bear in that his name comes from the constellation of the Great Bear, which was also known as 'Arthur's Wain/Arthur's Plow.' Midwinter is the time of Alban Arthuan/The Light of Arthur and the Winter's Soltice. The Winter's Soltice is the longest night of the year, and people called upon the constellation of the Great Bear to light their way in the darkness. Soltices and Equinoxs were performed at Stonehenge. The Bear is also thought to be ruled by the planet Mars. Ancient traditions help us discover our ancestral roots.” 979
Cecil Rhodes derived his concept of the Round Table from the Celtic legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. In particular, Rhodes was inspired by Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem Morte d'Arthur which is a poetic account of King Arthur's death, a portion of which is reprinted below.
I perish by this people which I made, - Tho' Merlin sware that I
should come again To rule once more - but let what will be, be, I
am so deeply smitten thro' the helm That without help I cannot last till
Then loudly cried the bold Sir Bedivere, "Ah! my Lord Arthur,
whither shall I go? Where shall I hide my forehead and my eyes?
For now I see the true old times are dead, When every morning
brought a noble chance, And every chance brought out a noble knight.
Such times have been not since the light that led The holy Elders
with the gift of myrrh. But now the whole Round Table is dissolved
Which was an image of the mighty world..."
And slowly answer'd Arthur from the barge: "The old order changeth,
yielding place to new, And God fulfils Himself in many ways...
But now farewell. I am going a long way . . . Where I will heal me of
my grievous wound."
According to legend, Arthur was borne to the heavens on a celestial barge, alternately called Arthur's Chariot and Arthur's Wain (Wagon). King Arthur is the 'once and future king': “Tho' Merlin sware that I should come again, To rule once more...”
"In his great 15th century epic Morte D'Arthur, Thomas Malory tells a different legend of Arthur's epitaph. Arthur's life in Morte D'Arthur ends at Glastonbury; his burial is witnessed by Sir Bedevere and a hermit 'that sometime was bishop of Canterbury'. 'Yet some men say in many parts of England that King Arthur is not dead, but had by the will of Our Lord Jesu into another place; and men say that he shall come again, and he shall win the Holy Cross. Yet I will not say that it shall be so; but rather I would say, here in this world he changed his life. But many men say that there is written upon the tomb this: HIC IACET ARTHURUS, REX QUONDAM REXQUE FUTURUS - 'Here lies Arthur, the once and future king'." - 831
More recently, in 1958, a book titled Once and Future King was written by T.H. White to revive Arthurian lore in anticipation that the ancient king would one day return. Arthur's barque sailed to the location of the Great Bear constellation, whence he shall return in the person of the Antichrist.
“'King Arthur, the renowned hero of the Mabinogion, typified the Great Bear; as his name—Arth, bear, and Uthyr, wonderful—implies in the Welsh language; and the constellation, visibly describing a circle in the North Polar regions of the sky, may possibly have been the true origin of the Son of Pendragon's famous Round Table, the earliest institution of a military order of knighthood.' Whatever may be the fact in this speculation, we know that the early English placed King Arthur's home here and that the people of Great Britain long called it Arthur's Chariot or Wain...” (William Henry Smyth, Speculum Hartwellianum) - 927:425
Arthur's son, Modred, was the Guardian of the Grail, the offspring of Arthur's 'sacred marriage' rite with his half-sister, Morgaine. Arthur, whose name means bear, is believed to be sleeping as the bears who hibernate during winter.
“The legend of Arthur sleeping in an underground cave, waiting for his day of awakening, is like the life of a Bear that hibernates in the winter in a sort of suspended animation, as its bodily temperature falls to conserve calories.” 979
It was recently reported that a super-volcano is expected to erupt in Yellowstone National Park, a location which is known for its population of bears. Ironically, in one news report the super-volcano is likened to a hibernating bear.
“...the Yellowstone Super-Volcano was 20,000 years past due. Let us review that story: “NEWS BRIEF: 'Super Volcanoes: Satellites Eye Deadly Hot Spots', Space.com, 07 August 2001 “... no one can say if or when it might become dangerously active. If a volcano is like a hibernating bear, however, then it may well be volcanic springtime in Yellowstone. Super explosions, about 1,000 times more material erupted than Mt. St. Helens in 1980, happen about every 600,000 years at Yellowstone,' Wicks says. 'And it's been about 620,000 years since the last super explosive eruption there.”
We have documented in our report, Heeding Bible Prophecy, that the U.S. military is capable of awakening volcanoes with electromagnetic weaponry. Volcanoes are believed to be portals to the lost continents of Lemuria and Atlantis. Coleridge portrayed the god Typhon as a volcano erupting from Hell. Can it be that the planned awaking of the super-volcano in Yellowstone National Park will announce the coming of Arthur, the “Once and Future King,” returning to the earth in the person of the Antichrist?
Thomas Friend, once a Led Zeppelin devotee but now a born-again Christian, later refutes the pagan concept of a female Holy Spirit.
“The logical conclusion then, is that these occultists are in error when applying a feminine singular to the Hebrew Godhead. They also say that the 'Mother' in their Qabalistic trinity is the Holy Spirit in the Bible. They use the Holy Spirit as presented in scripture to represent the other (this is the dove that the Hermit is standing on at the top of the mountain on the inner cover of Led Zeppelin's fourth album). Conversely, this is what the Lord Jesus Christ had to say about the Holy Spirit to his disciples, just before he was crucified: 'I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.'” (John 16:12-13) The Lord Jesus Christ presents him as masculine. (982:214)
In his expose of Led Zeppelin, Friend wrote about the direct appeals of this rock band to recruit bondslaves for Satan. One song, stated Friend, “...Dazed and Confused contains a two-part command from Robert Plant to the listener to sell his or her soul to the Devil.” In 1999, Robert Plant, presumably of the Plantard bloodline, started a rock band called the "Priory of Brion" which was named after the Priory of Zion:
"The Priory of Brion grew out of a reunion between Robert Plant and his old friend Kevyn Gammond from the Band of Joy... According to Robert in an interview, the band's name was an amalgam of the Priory of Zion (a mysterious and ancient French secret society) and The Life of Brian (the Monty Python film). The band members were at first introduced under names which were obviously not their real ones... Kevyn Gammond (aka 'Carlyle Egypt')... Paul Timothy (aka 'Owain Glyndwr')...Paul Wetton (aka 'Eric Bloodaxe' and 'Brian')...Andy Edwards (aka 'Aleister Crowley' and several other stage names)..."
Plant also wrote the lyrics to "Stairway to Heaven"—a blend of Celtic/Druid rock music and mythology—which is considered the most popular rock song of all time.Plant's lyrics are loaded with Celtic, Druidic, and Black Sabbath symbolism, Arthurian lore, specific allusions to Tolkein's Lord of the Rings, and detailed instructions on how to make a pact with the Devil. More than one analysis of Led Zeppelin's music has speculated that Stairway to Heaven is really the Stairway to Tolkein's Middle Earth.
Ulalume is full of esoteric meaning which only an occultist would comprehend. However, Poe's obsession with the 'ghoul-haunted woodland of Weir' is explicable and relevant to any inquiry as to the identity of the two Beasts of Revelation 13. 'Weir' is the German spelling of the ancient French family of 'Vere' of the Merovingian bloodline. Arthurian lore contains many veiled allusions to this Satanic bloodline, for example, Sir BeDEVERE, Arthur's loyal knight, and GuineVERE, his queen.
It is from the Vere bloodline that the Antichrist which will eventually come. For this reason, an ancient body called the Dragon Court has been in existence to preserve and protect the Vere/Weir bloodline.
"The Dragon Court exists as an organization solely for the bloodline descendants of the ancient Vere family—the senior bloodline successors as a Scythian-Merovin, Elven House of Princess Maelasanu—and for those whose bloodlines are extracted from this descent and its ancient Dragon Court." (342:8)
The surname VERE has many variations which are determined by locality, amongst which are found the following forms: Vere, de Vere, Ver, de Ver, Veer, Vear(e), Veir, Veyre, Vare, Veary, Very, Vary, Vire, Revere, Sver(e), Svar, Shpere, Spear(e), Spere, Svear, Fere, Fear, Fairy; Ware, Wayer, Waer, Weyir, Weyr, Weir(e), Weier, Wear(e), Weary, Wehre, Werre, Weer, Werr, and Wyre.
