An excerpt from: The False Prophet Azazel by John of the Gentiles Appendix A

The Rose Cross of Azazel According to an esoteric reading of the Tarot, a Red Rose represents Venus (Azazels human wife), while a Red Cross represents the angel Azazel. The combined Rose-Cross in one respect represents the sexual union of Azazel and his human wife. The word Rosicrucian is German for Rose Cross, a term synonymous with Red Cross. In addition to this, the word rose is an anagram for Eros, the name of the Greek god of Love, who was the first-born son of the angel Azazel and of his human wife. The 18th Degree in Freemasonry is commonly known as the Rose-Croix (Rose Cross), a fact showing the relation to and establishing a link between these two seemingly diverse organizations. In fact, the ascension of Freemasonry (not to be confused with the more archaic Masonry) as we know it today correspondingly relates to the decline of the Rosicrucian order in Europe, most markedly in Germany, the birthplace of Rosicrucianism (Dr Sigismund Bacstrom, an important Rosicrucian scholar of the alchemical sciences, wrote in Bacstroms Rosicrucian Society (circa late 18th to early 19th Centuries A.D.) of the August most ancient and most learned (Rosicrucian) Society, the Investigators of Divine, Spiritual and Natural Truth (which Society, more than two centuries and a half ago (during the 15th Century), did separate themselves from the Freemasons). These movements being interrelated and dynamic by their their very natures, Freemasonry later re-absorbed many Rosicrucians back within its ranks (See pp.55-56 Proofs of a Conspiracy: Chapter I by John Robinson, 1798 A.D.). There are many Rosicrucian Societies yet in existence today, most notably AMORC. In addition, and of a most interesting note, the Order of Maat Supreme Grand Lodge owns a web site called Links Central of Maat (M.A.A.T. = Master of the Temple A.A. [A.A. = Aleister Crowleys Argenteum Astrum/Silver Star]. See p. 241 Nightside of Eden by Kenneth Grant, 1977 A.D.), by their own profession a web ring for Rosicrucians, which employs a rose-cross ankh symbol (a rosetau). This is derived from the name of the Egyptian god Seker, who represented the angel Azazel, who was called He of the rosetau, which is to say, he of the rose (red) cross. In Scene 2 of the 3rd Tableau of the Initiation of Plato, it is revealed that Azazels symbol, the red cross, was traced upon the banner of Egypt, on what amounted to being the national flag of Egypt. And according to Flying Roll No. 10 (in Roman numerals, 10 = X, named in honor of Azazel) of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, X (a cross variant) is the occult sign of Osiris risen (Osiris represented Azazels cherub Behemoth. It is for this reason A. E. Waite, a member of the Golden Dawn, lists the Wheel of Fortune, representative of Azazels cherub, as the 10th (Roman numeral X) Major Arcana of the Tarot. There exist those who hold the crossed-arm symbolism represents Osiris slain). It must also be noted The Church of Scientology employs a similar logo, called the Cross Saltire**. Compare the Cross Saltire to Aleister Crowleys O.T.O. Rose Cross Lamen (a lamen is a magical charm-like pendent worn around the neck by the leader of a witchs coven). This signifies Azazels (represented by the X) future appearance as the false Christ (represented by the cross). When the symbol for Azazel (x) is superimposed upon the cross (+), it forms what is known as an eight-point compass rose. For this reason a classical wooden ships wheel, which resembles an eight point compass rose, is at times used as a symbol of Azazel (as are wheels of similar composition). A ships anchor (often found wound round

with a chain) is also used as a symbol for the union of Azazel and his human wife, as it represents the union of the tau cross, representative of Azazel, with the crescent moon, the crescent moon being a symbol of Azazels human wife). (**Authors Note: The Process Church of the Final Judgment founded by two ex-Scientologists employed a decidedly related symbol depicting a serpent upon a cross (in the place of Christ crucified), what one might venture to identify as being a Chritianized-version of the palladium. They even had rings made with this cross depicted in red on a white background [within the disk] the sigil of Azazel [See below]):

In Egyptian hieroglyphics the god Ptah (a god who represented Azazel) is always associated with an x within a circle, also known as the quartered circle (for this reason an ox has become an esoteric symbol of Azazel (Oxford University derives its name from it). A male ox is called a bull, a common angel symbol (by extension, Azazels human wife may be symbolized as a cow. The Egyptian cow goddess represents Azazels human wife). Compare the x within a circle symbol of Ptah to the Cross of Wodan, also a cross within a circle. The Germanic god Wodan is yet another god who represented the angel Azazel/Behemoth. In some circles the cross within a circle motif is known as the Mark of Cain (this is due to the fact that in the Phoenician alphabet the letter T is rendered as an X and is pronounced tau, meaning mark). Cain of course was the son of Azazel by Eve. The quartered circle was the badge (talisman/magic charm) of the Grand Master of the Knights Templars. No doubt it was worn in part to protect the user in battle as God was said in Genesis 4:15 to have placed such a mark upon Cain to keep him from being slain). The so-called Freemasonic Scottish Rite 18th Degree Rose Croix quartered circle (also a symbol of the Gnostics/Gnosticism) is a variant of the cross within a circle motif. The NATO military alliance also employees a variant of the quartered circle logo which is representive of the god of war Azazel. As we learn from the Wicca witch priestess Doreen Valiente in Witchcraft for Tomorrow pp.67-68, the cross within the circle motif, the sign of Azazel, was one of the designs of the magic circles of the witches; the construction of such a magic circle was standard practice when witchs invoked their Horned God, who was Azazel! In fact, the device known as the witches mark which was employed by the witches (often signed during witches initiation ceremonies) is an X-shaped cross (Ibid p.179), the sign of Azazel. The red cross (in appearance a red X), was emblazoned upon Azazels cherub Behemoth: Lamia is the snake among the Ophidian; Lama is the hand: lamh, hand (for this reason a hand may also be used to represent Azazel; two examples are the god Sabazios, who represents Azazel, and whose symbol is a hand and also the witchs Hand of Glory which likewise represented Azazel), is a divine name in the Scythian tongue. It also means the number 10, and the Roman numeral X, which is a crosswhich, according to Eastern allegory, is placedupon the Rebellious Spirits (read: a red X was emblazoned upon the cherub of the angels) in their abyss or prison (within the earth). - The Rosicrucians: Their Rites and Mysteries (SRIA member Hargrave
Jennings, 1870 A.D.). The SRIA is an English Rosicrucian Society. SRIA members, it must be remembered, gave birth to the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, oweing its mysteries in part to this book by Jennings). The Knights Templar

god Baphomet also represented Azazel. As we learn from The Rosicrucians: Their Rites and Mysteries (Hargrave Jennings) p.215, the Coptic root met encountered in the word Bapho-met means ten. The Roman numeral signifying 10, rendered as an X, a cross variation, is the sign of Azazel (Ba [ab/father]-pho [oph/serpent] met [X]). In her book Witchcraft for Tomorrow p.117 the Wicca witch-priestess Doreen Valiente reveals: Ogham was a sacred Druid alphabet and would certainly have contained magic secrets I would say one of the biggest secrets it reveals is the mystery surrounding the identity of the mysterious Theosophical Society deva known as Master KH with whom many high-ranking members of this society claimed to be in contact. In the sacred Ogham alphabet of the magic practicing Druids, KH was rendered as an X. Master KH, which is the Druid way to say, Master X, was the Hidden Master Azazel himself! This is also the idea behind the word Ur-Khaos, the god of the underworld: KH (X) + A (horned ox head sign of the horned god) + O (the disk, a cherub) + S (the serpent), the serpent horned god of the X-marked disk of the Chaldean city of Ur (Ur-Khaos was later translated as Orcus, the Gaelic Druidic god of the underworld/abyss). According to the Ritual Magic of the Golden Dawn (p.208, King 1987), the rising of Adonai, of Mithra the Lord of Wide Pastures was by the ancient mysteries symbolized under the form of a rose (also known as the Rose of Dawn). In a like way, the gods Adonai and Mithra represented Azazel/Behemoth (Adonai hascome to mean, through the Rosicrucian tradition, the Holy Guardian Angel (with whom, it must be noted, magicians sought to communicate). Eight Lectures on Yoga by Aleister Crowley, 1939 A.D.). Azazel will in the future arise within his cherub being loosed from his earthly imprisonment. In respect to the angel Azazel, the rose cross also symbolizes the future rising of Azazel/Behemoth, Azazel being accepted as the coming Messiah. So the rose is also used as a symbol of Azazel. The red cross as a symbol of Azazels cherub Behemoth also hearkens back to the Egyptian mysteries of Osiris. The god Osiris represented Azazels cherub Behemoth, and by extension, Azazel. In the Egyptian Hymn to Osiris, the disk of Osiris (Osiris = Behemoth) is identified as the rosetau, the rose (red) cross (Divine oblation to Osiris (Behemoth) KhentAmenti, lord of Abydosthe diskthe rostau - Hymn to Osiris). Cherubim are disk-shaped. It must also be noted the tau cross (rendered in Greek as a T) is the 19th letter of the Greek alphabet. Azazels prophesied release takes place on the 19th day of July 2016 A.D. In Freemasony, the symbol for Azazel, a tau cross, is represented by the T-square. The Rosicrucians, whose name means rose cross in German, names their secret organization after the rostau/disk/Osiris/Behemoth. The Germanic name Christian Rosenkreuz, which in English translates as Christian Rose Cross, represents no other persona than the rebellious angel Azazel himself. The name is a play on words which may be interpreted as the christ of the red cross, representing Azazel, whose sign is the red cross, in reference to his future appearance as the false-christ/false prophet/messiah (See Revelations 16:13; according to the Rosicrucian Hargrave Jennings in The Rosicrucians: Their Rites and Mysteries, p.142, the color red is male and represents the Salvator, a Latin word meaning Savior). Theosophist Freethinker Ida C. Craddock provides another piece of our puzzle: Why did these mystics call themselves Rosicrucian? Some writers have attempted to derive the name from two words meaning "dew" and "cross": but the usual interpretation is "followers of the Rosy Cross" (read: followers of Azazel) a cross with a rose (used analogously of Azazel) being used as the society's symbol. Heavenly Bridegrooms. (It must also be mentioned when one adds the disk (O) [Azazels cherub is

disk-shaped], to the word Sirius, it becomes Osirius, and when one drops the u it becomes Osiris. The heliacal rising of the star Sirius in 2016 A.D. takes place on the 19th day of July, the day Azazel in his disk-shaped red-cross emblazoned cherub is to emerge from his earthen imprisonment, claiming to be Christ. In this same way, the Babylonian god Ea, alternatively spelled Ia (another such god which represented Azazel/Behemoth), becomes the name of the Gnostic god Iao with the inclusion of the disk [O]). The words Sirius and Osiris are related to the Semetic word Siru: Scholars ordinarily refer to the serpent god (who is Azazel) by the name Siru, being the Semitic word for serpent - p.120, Tammuz and Ishtar (S. Langdon, Shillito Reader of Assyriology, Oxford, 1914 A.D. It would also seem the name Isis is also derived from the word Osiris). As an additional added bonus note, in the ancient Babylonian system of Gematria, where letters are used to represent numbers, the number 10 is represented by the letters IA (which Roman numeral is represented by an X). Ia of course is an alternative spelling of the name of the god Ea. Compare the modern spelling of our number ten to the name of the Egyptian sun disk Aten (in Roman, A-X) (AX = IAO = OX). No doubt there exists a connection here. In the pictographic alphabet of the Egyptians, a horned ox head (representative of the horned-god Azazel) was the equivalent of the Roman letter A (and hence was also derived the anarchist symbol for Azazel, an A within a circle/disk [O]). All of these are designations for Azazels cherub Behemoth and by extension, Azazel. Additionally, Ax/Abrasax were synonymous terms: You are Ax, you are Abrasax (Ab [father] + Ra [the disk] + S [the serpent] + A [horned oxhead/horned god] + X [ten] (A-ten)), the angel who sits upon the tree of Paradise... (A-X is the Archaic Latin alphabetic version of the classical Greek Alpha-Omega, the title of the resurrected Christ (See Revelations 22:13). Both are the first and last letters of their respective alphabets. Perhaps it signifies a Creator/Destroyer, an angel and the cherub [the word destroyer in The Bible is used synonymously with that of the word cherub] to which he was assigned). As such an ax is often used as a symbol for Abrasax/Azazel (compare ax to the Greek word aix which means goat (note the addition of the phallic pillar, I). The Hebrew word for a male goat is also used to denote a demon. The demons are the rebellious fallen angels. For this reason Satyrs/demons, representative of fallen angels, are symbolically represented as being goat-like in appearance, such as the god Pan, the king of satyrs, who represented Azazel). The letter O was derived from the Semitic `Ayin (eye), and hence, the eye (disk) of Horus, also known as Azazels cherub Behemoth. Constantines IX monogram (also employed by the Merovingians) often encircled with the disk in its various forms is likewise esoterically connected with the false christ Azazel. Constantine never actually abandoned his pagan beliefs, he simply applied a Christian veneer. A phallis also is a symbol used to represent Azazel, often represented as an I, it being representative of Osiris phallis which according to one version of the Osiris legend was the single dismembered member of Osiris dissected corpse retrieved by the goddess Isis. One may conclude this to be the origin of the artificial stone phalli and priapic statues employed in Egyptian magic rituals, it representing Osiris amputated phallis. I believe such priapic idols were actually used to perform hiero gamos magic rituals involving the ritual rending of a virgins hymen. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn also esoterically derives its name from Azazel. Hermes was another Egyptian name for Azazel, he of a thousand names. The Golden Dawn is analogous of the solar disk, the sun, which like Azazels cherub Behemoth, is disk-shaped and rises at dawn, which is the expected time of Azazels future release (the holy one (read: the angel Azazel in his cherub) appeared; as a golden dawn did he appear - Aleister Crowleys
LIBER ARCANORUM ATU TAHUTI QUAS VIDIT ASAR IN AMENNTI SUB FIGUR CCXXXI LIBER CARCERORUM QLIPHOTH CUM SUIS GENIIS. ADDUNTUR SIGILLA ET NOMINA EORUM) (in the Egyptian

Book of the Dead Plate XXI B.D. Chap. XV it was said the Egyptian god Ra, who represented the angel Azazel, risest at dawn in allusion to the time of Azazels release). Israeli Regardie, a Rosicrucian who later joined the Stella Matutina, a successor organization of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (Regardie served as personal secretary to Aleister Crowley), writes in his book entitled The Golden Dawn: The Rose-Cross is a glyphof the higher Genius (read: angel) to whose knowledge and conversation the student is eternally aspiring (in reference to Aleister Crowleys attainment of the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel). The Genius of which Regardie speaks with whom such individuals sought to converse is a so-called guardian angel, the angel Azazel. His glyph/symbol is the rose cross/red cross. Indeed, Azazel is known as Sirius, the Hidden God of the Illuminati (the Illuminati/angels are also known as the Grand Masters of the Templars), so named as his return is associated with the Dog Star Sirius. This fact is important enough to repeat. Azazel is known as the Hidden God Sirius: In his book Magickal Revival Grant writes that Phoenix was (Aleister) Crowleys most secret name. It represented the ancient Constellation in which Sothis (Seth) or Sirius was the highest star. He writes that Crowley associated the very heart of his teachings and Magick with a certain star, namely the Sun behind the Sun, the Hidden God Sirius. The secret of the Illuminati, or the Enlightened Ones is the blazing star Sirius, Grant writes. The Sirius Mysteries (Notable quote: To the Egyptians, the Sun behind the Sun was known as Osiris (a god who represents Behemoth/Azazel) and also as Amun-RA, the Hidden Sun. - The Book of the Master by Marshall Adams. Indeed, the Egyptian Hymn to Osiris-Soka is a summons/call addressing the angel Azazel in greeting: Hail, thou hidden God, Osiris (Behemoth/Azazel; Sirius is a cognate of Osiris) in the underworld!) (The Great Hymn of Aten, Aten being representative of Azazels cherub Behemoth, is called therein the hiddengodin the underworld). Crowley was merely carrying on a long established magic tradition, most noteably of the magic practiced by high-degree Freemasons (often gleened from ongoing archaeological discoveries): The Ancient Astronomers (astronomers were as a rule astrologers/sorcerers) saw all the great Symbols of Masonry in the Stars. Sirius glitters in our (Freemasonic) lodges as the Blazing Star (which is a symbol of Azazel. Blazing is synonymous with shining*). - Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Rite of Scottish Freemasonry by Albert Pike. Indeed, as we learn from C. W. Leadbeater (prominent member of the Theosophical Society) in Glimpses of Masonic History the Blazing Star Sirius (representative of Azazel), the so-called glyph of the higher genius with whom all practitioners of magic sought to contact, was symbolized by the Rose which ever blossoms at the heart of the Cross, the very symbol of the Rosicrucians themselves. Compare to the Dogon tribe in Africa which also portrays the helical rising of Sirius as a cross with a flower-like sun at its center. (The fallen angel Azazel is associated with the
star Sirius. The Five-Pointed Star, the pentagram/pentagon, is the icon of Sirius, and as such, the icon of Azazel, as well as the esoteric importance of the five-pointed Blazing Star of the Masons. The symbol of the star Sirius as a symbol of Azazel hearkens back to Biblical days: Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch [their King Azazel], and the star [called a Chiun] of your god Remphan [Azazel], figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon. - Acts 7:43; and again: But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch [their King Azazel] and Chiun your images, the star of your god [Remphan/Azazel], which ye made to yourselves. - Amos 5:26) (* According to Sufi expert Idries Shah the true rulers of the world are the Enlightened Ones (Illuminati) [read: the fallen angels] and the Sufi have discovered their secret in the Quran in the following verse: Allah [who is Azazel] is the Light of the Heavens and the Earth. His Light is resembled by a lamp within a niche. The lamp within a crystal, like a shining (blazing) star. He claims the allusion to a shining star is a reference to Sirius (See The Sirius Mysteries). The angels are known as the Shining Ones and a star is often used as the symbol for an angel, hence Shining Star/Blazing Star) (A Not-so-notable Quote: Such surely is the destiny that awaits our beloved Order in the future; such the splendour that will transfigure the Craft [Freemasonry] in the years that are to come, until within its temple walls once more is raised - not only in symbol but in actual fact (upon Azazels release from his earthen imprisonment) - the ladder which stretches between earth and heaven, between men and the Grand Lodge above, to lead them from the darkness of

the world to the fullness of light in God (he speaks not, to be sure, of the God of Christians and Jews, but of the god of the Craft, who is Azazel), to the Rose which ever blossoms at the heart of the Cross, to the Blazing Star whose shining brings peace and strength and blessing to all the worlds. - Glimpses of Masonic History by C. W. Leadbeater)

According to a footnote to The Dionysian Artificers: Thamuz (a variant spelling of Tammuz) signifies the name of a month, and likewise the name of an idol or divinity, which even in the opinion of St. Jerome is the same as (the god) Adonis (both are gods who represent the angel Azazel). Plutarch says that the Egyptians called Osiris Ammuz, and from thence was corruptly derived the name of Jupiter Ammon (Ammon, a varient spelling of Amoun, means the Hidden One. See p.29 Witchcraft for Tomorrow by Doreen Valiente, 1978 A.D.). Robertson (Thesaurus Linguae Sanctae) says that the word Ammuz (read Ammoum) used by Herodotus and Plutarch, were corruptions from the Hebrew Thamuz (Hebrew { Hebrew TMWZ}). I would rather say that the word was originally Egyptian, and made Hebrew by the addition of the formative { Hebrew T}) And so was an Egyptian name for Azazel, namely Ammuz, transformed into Tammuz by the addition of the symbol for Azazel, namely, the tau cross (rendered in Greek as a T; in the Phoenician alphabet, the Greek T takes the form of another enigmatic symbol of Azazels cherub Behemoth, the quartered circle/x within a circle, pronounced tet and meaning wheel, a Biblical name for a cherub). It must be noted The Dionysian Articifers (circa. 1820 A.D.) is an essay written by an eminent Brazilian Freemason. The Greek Dionysiacs as they were also called was an association of architects and engineers, followers of the god Dionysius (also known as Bacchus) and builders of temples, theatres and stadia, an early society of Freemasons. In Freemasonry the tau cross, the symbol of Azazel, is represented by the T-square. (Notable quote: The TAU (the sign of Azazel) is the central figure of the Theosophical
Seal (employed by the Theosophical Society) and the heart of its message. - The Theosophical Seal (Arthur M. Coon, 1958 A.D.)) (The Thames River in England is named after Thamuz/Azazel: The Thames through Oxford is often given the name the River Isis, although historically, and especially in Victorian times, gazetteers and cartographers insisted that the entire river was correctly named the River Isis from its source until Dorchester-on-Thames. Only at this point, where the river meets the River Thame and becomes the Thame-isis (subsequently abbreviated to Thames) should it be so-called; Ordnance Survey maps still label the Thames as River Thames or Isis until Dorchester. Wikipedia: River Thames. Isis, it must be remembered, is an Egyptian name for Azazels human wife)) (The Hammer of the god Thor, who represented Azazel, in form resembles and represents a tau cross (T), the sign of Azazel)

The Rose Window (the rosette window) on the faade of the Rosslyn Chapel (aka the Collegiate Chapel of St Matthew) located at the village of Roslin, Midlothian, Scotland, employs such rose cross symbolism in its architechural design. This is a symbol of the future release of the angel Azazel. Other architetural features of Rosslyn Chapel include over 110 Green Man carvings. The Green Man represents the angel Azazel (the Egyptian god Osiris, a god who represented Azazel/Behemoth, was depicted with green skin). Ancient Sumerian depictions of Azazel show him wearing rosette bracelets (which would account for the rose being used as a symbol of Azazel). It must be noted the Rosslyn Chapel was erected by 15th Century Masons acting under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Church. Ceremonial magician A.E. Waite and one-time Chief of the Druid Order in England Godfrey Higgins believed that the secret to forming the Philosophers Stone with the aid of dew was the secret concealed in the Rosicrucian name. One interpretation of the Rose Cross is that the rose represents the dew in an alchemical process, as Rosi Crucis translates as dew cup. The following scripture esoterically refer to regeneration as it refers to the Resurrection. Note the use of the rose motif to symbolize regeneration (Franz Hartmann has stated the greatest of all magical feats is the spiritual regeneration of man. See the Preface to Third Edition of Magic,

White and Black). Flowers are often used as symbols to represent the human body: your body is the garden of flowers. - The Songs of Kabir Listen to me, you holy sons, and bud like a rose which grows by a watercourse; exhale fragrance like a frankincense tree, and blossom like a lily. Give forth an odor and sing a song, bless the Lord (God) for all His works. - The Wisdom of Sirach 39:13-14 How glorious he wasLike roses in the days of first fruits, like lilies by a spring of water, like a sprig of frankincense, on summer days, like fire and incense in the censer - The Wisdom of
Sirach 50:8,9

I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. - Song of Songs 2:1 (KJV) The rose and the cross of the Rosicrucians also symbolize regeneration. To Rosicrucians, the rosy cross can represent the formula for the Universal Medicine, the panacea for all forms of disease. In addition to the Rosicrucians, the Rose/Cross motif is shared by the Masons (as evidenced by The Scottish Rite 18th degree Knight of the Rose Cross). To the Masons the rose/cross was in one respect the symbol of regeneration: The rose is the ancient emblem of spring. Upon the cross it signifiesman regenerated (Ancient Masonry C.C. Zain 1994 p. 249). It must be noted a five-petaled rose is used to represent a pentagram, while a six-petaled rose represented a hexagram. The cross is an esoteric symbol for a transverse electromagnetic wave; a hexagram represents a standing wave (See The Knowledge of Wisdom by John of the Gentiles. The Rose/Cross motif is also a symbol of (as evidenced by the Rosy Cross lamen of) the magic group known as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. These organizations are all associated and the use of shared motifs, vis a vis, evidence these organizations shared beliefs, as well as their shared associations. Members of one such order are often members of similar orders. These organizations are cell-like and dynamic, and like the hydra of old, they have many heads working towards the same final goal, so the loss of one does not result in the destruction of all, while others will spring up in its stead. The beast lives on to fight another day. The ancient Roman practice of adorning with roses the door of a room in which confidential matters were discussed gave birth to the phrase sub rosa, which translates as under the rose, meaning, to keep a secret (Notable quote: brought from ancient Egypt, is the Cross upon the Rose Cross, symbol of life, Rose, symbol of matter and symbol of secrecy as well. The Brotherhood of Religions by Annie Besant Adyar Pamphlets No.24). These were secret meetings of secret societies discussing secret matters. The Romans called the rose the Flower of Venus. The goddess Venus represented the angel Azazels human wife. King Arthur and his Round Table used Rosicrucian motifs, or, rather, vice versa. The rose/cross symbol was said to be drawn upon the Round Table used by Arthur and his Knights (the Tree of Life is also a common symbol amongst Medieval knightly themes). Arthurs/Azazels Round Table represented Azazels cherub Behemoth. The red cross was also associated with the Holy Grail which in the Arthurian legends was the Christianized symbolic version of the long sought after cherub of Azazel (Behemoth). A rose is also the central motif for the links of the chain upon which the Great George is suspended amongst the jewels of the

Order of the Garter. The symbol of the Knights of the Garter is a red cross on a white shield. Both were/are Masonic organizations. One symbol of the Knights Templar was the red cross on a white background, also by design symbolic of Azazels cherub (the rose/cross combination was also the badge (talisman/magic charm) of the Knights Templar group). The tradition continues today with the Red Cross organization. It must be mentioned many of the gods which represented Azazel were gods associated with healing. The Sumerians worshipped Azazel as Ninazu (nin means lord), the god of healing and of the underworld. The Romans knew him as Aesculapius, the god of medicine, and he was known to be as well the Greek and Phoenician god of healing. The red cross which represents the god-angel of healing Azazel is for this reason used as a symbol of the medical organization known as the International Federation of the Red Cross, most commonly known as the Red Cross. (Notable quote: Many of the magical charms and spells were for the healing of the sick or for the prevention of disease... Many charms and spells surviving to the present day contain the names of pre-Christian gods (all representing the angel Azazel). These spells are usually connected with cures for diseases in human beings and animals - p.75 The God of the Witches (Margaret Alice Murray, D.Lit., Fellow of University College, London, 1933 A.D.)) Aesculapius was the Roman god of medicine as well as the Greek and Phoenician god of healing. He was often depicted wielding what is known as the Staff of Aesculapius. Various medical organizations adopted the Staff of Aesculapius as its medical insignia, the staff itself consisting of an axial rod with a single winged serpent entwined about it. The U.S. Army Medical Corp has the Staff of Aesculapius as its insignia. The winged staff/serpent symbolism was also employed in the symbol of the Caduceus of Hermes. Enkis emblem (Enki who also represented Azazel) was two entwined serpents and was the symbol of his cult center at Eridu, same as that of the medical profession. This symbolism is also reminiscent of the Sumerian underworld god of healing, Ningishzida (Nin- means divinity/lord), whos symbol was two snakes entwined around a central axial rod (the Rod of Ningishzida is the symbol of the great guild of physicians in England) (It must be noted one of the many Egyptian titles for Azazel was the two-headed serpent (See the Egyptian Book of the Dead Plate XXXI)). The satyrs themselves carried a similar instrument known as a thyrsus, also known as the rod of Dionysus, a stick wound round with ivy and tipped with a pine cone. The Sidonian god of healing, Eshmun, was also depicted holding a serpent entwined staff in his right hand. All of these healing gods represented the angel Azazel who holds the title of Chief Physician. In fact, Azazel was what was known as a rapha, a surgeon, a member of the medical profession (compare rapha to the cognate pharma, thre root of the words pharmacy and pharmaceutical). The Book of Enoch lists medical practices (including abortion; an abortion is considered to be a sacrifice to the god Molech [who is Azazel]. See p.23 Blood on the Altar) as being amongst the secrets which were revealed to mankind by Azazel and his group of fallen angels. Many early doctors were students of the occult, as many folk cures can be found amongst the folklore of many diverse civilizations. Magic practicing cunning folk often employed herbal medications. Many drugs today are herbal based.
The fact that the cross (X) is linked with Azazel, who is oft confused by some as being the devil Satan himself, is the reason the horned devil, who in reality represents the horned god Azazel, is associated with crossroads. In fact many Egyptian mummies are laid to rest with arms crossed in the sign of Osiris Risen, the crossed arm symbol of Azazel being depicted on numerous Egyptian statues and reliefs (most notably depictions of the god Osiris/Azazel himself) (a man sitting cross-legged may also be thusly interpreted. For example: The Indian figures of the Horned God (who is Azazel), found at Mohenjo-Daro, are of the earliest Bronze-ageThe most remarkable is that of a man with bulls horns on his head, sitting cross-leggedThis representation was regarded in

historic times as a form of Shiva (who represents Azazel) and is called Pasupati, Lord of animals (a shepherd of sorts. Azazel is often depicted as a shepherd god). p.11 The God of the Witches (Margaret Alice Murray, D.Lit., Fellow of University College, London, 1933 A.D.)). As we learn from British witch/author Nigel Jackson in Chapter VI Masks of Misrule pp.93 & 99, the Horned One, the Horned God of the Witches (Azazel), was represented by a skull resting on crossed thighbones. Two crossed swords in the form of an X is a symbol of the Roman god of war Mars who likewise represented the angel Azazel, as is the skull and crossbones insignia said to have been originally flown on Knights Templars ships, though being more famously flown on English privateer pirate ships of British persuasion (these being known collectively as Jolly Roger flags). Interestingly enough, this symbol for Azazel, namely the skull and crossbone, is a design used in the logo of Yale Universitys Skull and Bones secret society, of which ex-Republican-presidents George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush were prominent members (the Skull and Bones secret society mimics the experience of the angels who are entrapped within the earth when they bury new initiates in a coffin and later unearth them). The eminent British knight/astronomer/astrologer/sorcerer Sir Isaac Newton esoterically pledges his allegiance to the fallen angel Azazel through his employment of a crossedbones (X) motif sans skull in his personal coat-of-arms. The swastika is also a variant form of the sign representing the angel Azazel. The swastika employed by German Nazis, Neo-Nazi Aryan groups and the Theosophical Society itself is but the Indian/Hindu form of the sign representing Azazel (X). It must be noted the swastika, the Hindu sigil of Azazel, is the letter G in the Ancient Northern European/Anglo-Saxon Runic script known as Futhorc/Futhark (the Armanen Futharkh of Guido Von List, also known as the Norse rune gifu, which is rendered as a simple X,). This is the esoteric reason for the inclusion of the G within the Freemasonic Square and Compass standard. The swastika, it must also be noted, is called the Hammer of Creation, and in Teutonic legends, the swastika is known as Thors Hammer, as Arthur M. Coon is nice enough to point out in explanation of the significance of the swastikas inclusion in the seal of the most reverent Theosophical Society (See The Theosophical Seal (Arthur M. Coon, 1958 A.D.), Thor of course representing the fallen angel Azazel. The hammer then is likewise a symbol of the blacksmithing god Azazel, who taught mankind the art of metalworking. He has placed his mark upon it)

The Roman emperor Constantine the Great (c. 285-337 A.D.), who made Christianity the official religion of Rome, of In this sign, conquer fame, conquered under the sign of Azazel (as did the ancients Egyptians, the Conquistadores, England and later Hitler also similarly conquer under the sign of Azazel) when he emblazoned the red cross on white background insignia on the shields of his conquering legions (See also the Labarum [Chi-Rho symbol] of Constantine which incorporates the sign of Osiris risen, namely, the X within its construction. The significance of the P in the Chi-Rho [X-P] symbol is P is the 16th letter of the alphabet signifying Azazels release/Osiris Risen in 2016 A.D. The Chi-Rho symbol was also employed by the Merovingians. The Greek Chi (X) symbol is often used to abbreviate the word christ, as when X-mas is employed as an abbreviation of Christmas, thereby literally taking Christ out of Christmas. Somehow wishing someone a Merry Osiris Risen on December 25th just doesnt pack the same punch). The Knights Templars (c. 12th - 13th Centuries) likewise employed a red cross on white field motif, as did their Crusading contemporaries the Knights Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem who ran a hospital there in Jerusalem in what is now modern day Israel (Noteable quote: From the descendants of the Magi, the Sufis, the mystics amongst the Mahometans derived their knowledge of astrology, medicine, and of esoteric doctrines. In 1118 the order of the Temple (the Knights Templars) was founded, nominally for the protection of pilgrims, but really for the restoration of the primitive mysteries. The Masters of Wisdom by E. Adams, 1890 A.D.) (the Teutonic Knights also employed the Red Cross of Azazel as its sigil). Today the Hospitallers are headquartered in Rome, as is the Vatican, and the Grand Master of the Knights Hospitallers group is considered the worlds highest-ranking Catholic lay person. The modern contemporary of the Knights Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem is the medical organization known as the International Organization of the Red Cross which likewise employs a red cross on white background insignia, this being the sign of Azazel. The British Red Cross Society works closely with a group called the St. John Ambulance Association, named after the leader of the

Knights Hospitallers, St. John of Jerusalem. The red cross, also known as St. Georges Cross, is the English national emblem, with the British national flag incorporating a red cross on a white background motif within its design, as well as the esoteric X sign of Azazel (however, the Flag of England is simply a red cross on white background!): The Union Jack (the flag of the United Kingdom) is a combination of the military ensigns of St. George's Cross for England, St. Andrew's Cross for Scotland, and St. Patrick's Cross for Ireland. p. 36 Manners, Customs, and Observances: Their Origin and Significance by Leopold Wagner (1894 A.D.). All of these sigils are representative of Azazel (as are the saints with whom these crosses are associated). Consider also the Maypole, one of the central motifs of May Day celebrations in England: In olden times nearly every village had its May-pole, around which, decorated with wreaths of flowers, ribbons, and flags, our merry ancestors danced from morning till night. The earliest representation of an English May-pole is that published in the Variorum ShakespeareThe pole is planted in a mound of earth (planted in the earth, representing Azazels encapsulation within the earth), and has affixed to it St. Georges red-cross banner (also known as the Colours of Saint George, the red cross being the sign of Azazel) - Folk-lore of Shakespeare Chapter XI (T.F. Thiselton Dyer, 1883 A.D.). All of these motifs represent and honor the angel Azazel whose sign was the redcross on white background. (Of an interesting added note, the American Eagle such as that depicted on the back of the dollar bill (a decidedly Masonic emblem) is often pictured with its wings unfurled and its legs outstretched forming an esoteric X the sign of Azazel (its left claw, signifying the sinister lefthand path of black magic, clutches divining arrows!). The eagle is the bird of Jove/Jupiter, who is Azazel, and Azazel (the Genesis serpent), it must be remembered, habitually dressed in bird costumes and was often symbolized by a bird. Indeed: In Elamitic religious art the eagle is brought into connexion with the serpent - Tammuz and Ishtar by S. Langdon, Shillito Reader of Assyriology, Oxford, 1914 A.D.)
The Knights of Pythias is a fraternal organization and secret-society founded at Washington, D.C., on 19 February 1864. Wikipedia: The Knights of Pythias. Famous Pythian Knights include former U.S. Presidents Warren G. Harding (Oddfellow), William McKinley (Oddfellow) and Franklin D. Roosevelt (Oddfellow), ex- U.S. Vice-Presidents Hubert Horatio Humphrey and Nelson A. Rockefeller, as well as U.S. Senators William Jennings Bryan (Oddfellow), Robert Byrd (Oddfellow) and Charles Chuck Schumer, including U.S. Supreme Court Justices Hugo Black (Oddfellow), Benjamin Cardozo, as well as Bob Jones, Sr., prominent Evangelist leader and founder of Bob Jones University. The Knights of Pythias logo employs a crossed axe (double axe in the form of an X) logo which includes arms and armor (it was Azazel who introduced the armorial arts to humans), as well as a lion (another sign of Azazel). All of these emblems are esoteric symbols of the false prophet Azazel. The Knights of Pythias (read: the Knights of Azazel, Pythias being a cognate of Python/Typhon) are still in existence today. Charles Schumer is the senior United States Senator from New York State, born in Brooklyn, N.Y. to a Jewish immigrant family. (Interesting Note: Horus (Azazel) was also called Horus-Behutet, or the Great Blacksmith, and was symbolized by the axe or the hammer. The Origin and Evolution of Freemasonry (Albert Churchward, 1920 A.D.). It was Azazel, it must be noted, who taught manking the blacksmiths art. In Egyptian hieroglyphs a neter (a god) was symbolized by an axe. Another symbol of Azazel is the Watchtower, as it is from such an exalted edifice the Greek god Bacchus (who represented Azazel) was said to watch over the grape vines from which he made his wine. See also the Greek Magical Papyrus [PDM xiv.554-62] which states: the Temple of Osiris (Behemoth/Azazel), my Watch-Tower. As we learn from the early church father Athenagoras: Osiris is named Dionysos by the Greeks. And Bacchus is but another name for Dionysos. I will do for you according to the Voice of Isis, the Magician, the Lady of Magic, who Bewitches everything, who is Never Bewitched in her Name of Isis, the Magician. Azazel is also associated with the Tower of Babel beneath which he lays entrapped (See Hidden Truths: A History of the World from Beginning to End by John of the Gentiles). Azazel (Horus) is also represented as a point within a circle.

The death of St. George, the patron saint of England, is depicted on St. Georges Collegiate Church in Tbingen (erected no doubt by Freemasons). Note the eight-point compass rose (x superimposed upon +), a symbol of Azazel. The rose is also a symbol of Azazel, hence the association of the rose with that of the eight-points of the compass. It is likely St. George represented Azazel. Many pagan gods were made into saints to ease their worshipers conversion to Christianity (the following selection is exemplary of this notion: The Roman Church
adopted the Angels and Archangels of the Celestial Allegory as its Saints, including Saint Bacchus (Bacchus represented the angel Azazel) and Saint Satan in place of Guardian Spirits that were once human beings (read: angels incarnate). - Gnostic and Historic Christianity (Gerald Massey)). Note Azazels sign (x) in the form of an equilateral cross in the decorative

motif to the north of St. George. Also, the word george means farmer. Cain, the son of Azazel by Eve the wife of Adam was said to be a farmer (See Genesis 4:2). Trades at the time were typically passed down from father to son.
Concedes C.F. Oldham (Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society in London), in a book devoted to the history of serpent worship as universally encountered in nearly every ancient religion, entitled The Sun and the Serpent: The legend of St. George and the Dragon, although it assumed its present shape in Christian times, was probably founded upon an older story. The story concerns, of course, the fallen angel Azazel. Indeed, one astrological symbol of the stately planet named in honor of the HornedGod Saturn who represented Azazel was such a mounted horseman with lance (See Astrology, p.61, Louis MacNeice, 1964 A.D.); no doubt this symbol was also a symbol of Azazel. As we learn from Wikipedia: The Most Noble Order of the Garter is the highest order of chivalry, or knighthood, existing in England, founded in 1348. The Order is dedicated to the image and arms of St. George (who represented Azazel) as England's patron saint. Gerald B. Gardner explains the establishment of the Order of the Garter was in this way: It is said that King Edward III saved one witch from certain torture at that famous incident to which the origin of the Order of the Garter was ascribed. He was dancing with the Countess of Salisbury (she was a high priestess in a witches coven) when she dropped the ritual Garter (the garter is a badge of rank among witches) which proclaimed her high rank in the cult. With Bishops about this was dangerous, so the King, knowing what it was (it being the witches symbol denoting ones rank as high-priestess in a witches coven), picked it up and put it on his own leg, saying: 'Honi soit qui mal y pense' ("shame upon him who thinks evil upon it")The King's quickness saved the situation (as the Bishops would have tortured her and burnt her at the stake, the penalty for being a witch) and placed him almost in the position of their incarnate god in the eyes of his more pagan subjects. This was followed by the foundation of an Order of twelve Knights for the King and twelve for the Prince of Wales, i.e. twenty-six members in all, or two (witches) covens (See Witchcraft Today, 1954 A.D.). Gardner therein poses the following question: In this connection, can anyone tell me exactly what is the meaning of the double SS on the collar of the Garter? SRIA member Hargrave Jennings provides the answer in The Rosicrucians: Their Rites and Mysteries (p. 119): the British golden collar of S.S. (worn on the collar of a Knight of the Order of the Garter) which is worn as a relic of the oldest day (in perpetuation of a mythos long ago buried (a nod to the fact that Azazel is currently interred within the earth)and forgotten in the dust of ages) by some of our (British) officials, courtly and otherwisebelongs to no known order of knighthood, but only to the very highest order of knighthood, the Magian, or to Magic. It is the sign of Azazel, the god of magic, the horned-god of the witches, the original Mage himself. (One such example of an Order of the Garter ceremonial magician is the Wizard Earl Henry Percy (1564

1632 A.D.). Percy prospered under Elizabeth I but was relegated to the Tower of London by the pious James I) The following red-cross on white background is the symbol of the Order of the Garter:

Azazel has left his mark the world over!
