The Mysteries and Their Emissaries
The Martyrdom of Hypatia (From The Old Big Book)
ONCE AGAIN WE TELL YOU THE STORY OF ANOTHER MARTYR OF OUR RACE, because of the teachings of the Martyrs. And from the old Big Book we read: Did that Divine Knowledge which constituted the Supreme possession of the ancient Priesthood, now called pagan, survive the destruction of these Martyrs, and their Temples? Is it yet accessible to mankind or does it lie buried beneath the rubbish of the Ages, entombed within the very sanctuaries that were once illuminated by its splendour??
In Egypt writes Origen, the philosophers have a sublime and secret knowledge respecting the nature of God. What did Julian imply when he spoke of the secret initiations into the sacred mysteries of the 7 Rayed God who lifted souls to Salvation through his own nature? Who were these blessed theurgists who understood these profound thoughts of which Julian wrote? If this inner Doctrine was concealed from the Masses, for whom a more simple code had been devised, is it not highly possible that even the exponents of every aspect of modern civilization, philosophic, ethical, religious and scientific are ignorant of the true meaning of the very theories and tenets of which their beliefs are founded? Do the Arts and Sciences that THE RACE has inherited from older nations conceal beneath their fair exterior a mystery so great that only the illuminated intellect grasps its import? Such is undoubtedly the case.
We ask you, is this not what we have been learning all along? The ancient knowledge of Adam’s race has been handed down and called Mysteries.
This knowledge was not for the masses of the World Order which could not understand and would only try to destroy. This knowledge was not even passed on to those of the Adamic race as a whole, only to those who did seek. Only a knowledge of Symbolism and what is in their hearts and minds would lead them further. Here in the old Big Book we are told that Albert Pike gathered ample evidence of the excellence of the doctrines of the ancient Israel mysteries. He then quoted from the writings of Clements of Alexandria, Egypt, and of Plato, Proclus, Cicero and others who held the teaching of the Ancient Mystery schools in high esteem. The Albert Pike became so enamoured with Freemasonry and tried to help tie those ancient symbols and their knowledge to this more modern organization.
