OCCULT SYMBOLS IN GRAIL RIPLINGER’S
SPIDER WEB PENTAGRAM
AS ABOVE, SO BELOW
THE ROSE CROSS
SPIDER WEB PENTAGRAM
A spider web in the shape of a pentagram is found on page 8 of In Awe of Thy Word:
“Man inscribed in a pentagram,
from Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa
Libri tres de occulta philosophia.”
“The Emblem of the Rose Cross is one of these divine symbols. The Western Mystery School (that of the Rosicrucian
’s) has as its Emblem the red roses (symbolic of the purification of the desire nature) on the cross (materiality), the golden five-pointed star (showing that the Christ is born within the disciple and radiates from the five points which represent the head and four limbs), and the blue background (symbolic of the Father)...
“The seven roses which garnish the Emblem and the five-pointed radiating star behind, are symbolical of the twelve Great Creative Hierarchies which have assisted the evolving human Spirit through the previous conditions, as mineral, plant, and animal, when it was devoid of consciousness and unable to care for itself in the slightest degree. Of these twelve hosts of Great Beings, three classes worked upon and with man of their own free will and without any obligation whatever. These are symbolized by the three points in the star upon the Emblem which point upward. Two more of the Great Hierarchies are upon the point of withdrawal, and they are pictured in the two points of the star which radiates downward from the center.” (“The Rosicrucian Emblem”)

Chapter Six: The Hidden Stone ‡ 181
“The pentagram has been a sacred symbol for ages, and was the central geometric figure of the Pythagorean mysteries. Its angles embody the Phi ratio and was the central geometric figure of the Pythagorean mysteries. Its angles embody the Phi ratio and golden mean geometry, and as such this figure appears a great deal in nature, including the human body, which is why the Priory of Sion Grand Master Leonardo da Vinci used it as symbol of the divine proportion in man. The planet Venus, called ‘the Morning Star
’and associated with Lucifer, actually forms a perfect pentagram from the perspective of the Earth as it cycles through its orbit, the only planet in our solar system to display such properties. Given its association with the Luciferian ‘Morming Star ’, and with the hidden mathematical mysteries of nature, we can understand how this symbol has become linked in the modern mind with Satanism.
“But recall that the pentagram can be traced back to ancient Sumeria, where it was called the ‘Ar
’, ‘the Plough Sign ’, and was linked back to the ‘Aryan ’race spawned by Cain and Satan. Furthermore, recall that the word ‘Ar ’also has the secondary meaning of ‘to shackle or imprison ’, which the word ‘Arca ’in Latin came to mean as well. Then recall the legends of Satan being imprisoned underground by a pentagram, and the legend of Cain and his descendants were later jailed within an underground realm called ‘the Arka. ’The word ‘ark ’or ‘arca ’also means ‘tomb. ’This prefix is further linked to words regarding secrecy, and digging or hiding things underground... And Henry Lincoln has found that the tomb in the painting The Shepherds of Arcadia is set within an implied geometrical pentagram. Is the pentacle of mountains at Rennes-le-Chateau the one that imprisoned these figures, and entombed them, occulting their hidden wisdom, written on the stone from Heaven?...
182 ‡ Merovingian Mythos
“Recall that in The Legends of the Jews, Louis Ginzberg described how Cain and his descendants purportedly wound up inside the ‘Arka’, writing that ‘The earth opened her mouth and swallowed up the four generations spring from Cain -- Enoch, Irad, Mehujael, and Mathushael.’ Five generations. Five kings of the Cainites. Five mountains in the pentagram at Rennes-le-Chateau. Are these things all coincidences?
“I submit that the five mountains of Rennes-le-Chateau contain the royal tombs of Cain and the four generations of kings that succeeded him. The tomb of Enoch also contains the tablet of Enoch, which was written on the stone from Heaven - the Holy Grail. It was believed that this stone somehow contained the living essence of Cain’s ‘Grail cup’, the ‘Vessel of God’ (the true God, Satan). Because of the legend that Satan and the Cainites were imprisoned in the center of the Earth by the other ‘God’, Jehovah, the ‘Arka’ became remembered as a prison as well.
“The stone was believed to contain the wisdom of Enoch, and this is the source of the stories about the tombs of Hermes and Christian Rosenkreutz, both of which purportedly contained the treasure. The stone was associated this the alchemical ‘Philosopher’s Stone’, and thus the symbol of the ‘Black Sun’, the ‘inner sun’, or the ‘rose’ came about - said to light the inner world of Agartha, the tomb of Osiris...”
In her “KJV
’s ABCs”, Gail Riplinger illustrated the letter “E” with All-Seeing Eyes which she did not identify but rather legitimizes this occult symbol with her linguistic mind games.
The next page features a modified version of the All-Seeing Eye which illustrates the “open” “East” side of the letter “e.” This All-Seeing Eye looks toward the East for its tradition of ancient wisdom:
It is rather humorous that an All-Seeing Eye is secretively positioned at the bottom of the title page of Chapter 14, “Enemy Secrets: Lexicons & Private Interpretations”:
“All-Seeing Eyes” are found on many other pages of In Awe of Thy Word, such as the following

Chapter Five: Descendants of the Devil ‡ 132
“The symbol of the All-Seeing Eye was...adopted by Freemasons, who incorporated many Egyptian mysteries into their rituals. It was Freemasons who designed designed the Great Seal of the United States, in which the All-Seeing Eye replaces the capstone of the Egyptian Great Pyramid. This is supposed to symbolize the ideal political world order envisioned by Freemasons--one of autocratic global hegemony, a return to the world empire of the golden age of the gods.”

In chapter 25, “RED All-Seeing Eye” symbols are used as bullets for eleven (11) of the KJV Translators. This symbol seems very strange considering the occult meaning of the All-Seeing Eye. What esoteric message is Gail conveying with 11 Red All-Seeing Eyes next to 11 KJV Translators? (11 + 11 = 22) 11 and 22 are master occult numbers. Red is the color of the Dragon bloodline.

“When the Imperial and Royal Dragon Court was reconstituted by King Sigismund in 1408 as the Societas Draconis, it was based upon an ancient bloodline tradition which Sigismund assumed that he had inherited from his presumed Egyptian and Scythian ancestors through the Pictish, Dragon Princess Maelasanu of Northumbria and the Ancient and Original Angevin Royal House of Vere of Anjou, the Imperial Dukes of Angiers. This line had descended through the Tuatha de Danaan (the Dragon Kings of Anu) on the one hand, and the Egyptian Dragon Dynasty of Sobek on the other. The latter strain included the bloodline of the Davidic House of Judah who married into the descent of the Merovingian Kings of the Franks...
“In 1408 (when Britain was in her Plantagenet era), the Dragon Court was formally reconstituted as a sovereign body at a time of wars and general political turmoil... The founding document...stated that members of the Court might wear the insignia of a dragon incurved into a circle, with a red cross—the very emblem of the original Rosicrucis which had identified the Grail succession from before 3000 B.C.” (Genesis of the Grail Kings)
“AS ABOVE, SO BELOW”
On page1126, the paragraph preceding the All-Seeing Eye discussed above is illustrated by a symbol for “As Above, So Below.” Gail even uses the Hebrew word for the New Age term “dawn” which, (she claims) Young’s Concordance says transliterates as the “eye lids of the day”. However, this turn of phrase was found in a work by Sir Francis Bacon, The Spanish Armada, which was his account of the destruction of the Spanish fleet by a tempest which was alleged to have been conjured by John Dee. The phrase originally appeared in the provocatively anti-Semitic play, The Jew of Malta, by Christopher Marlowe whose works Baconian fans attribute to.....Sir Francis Bacon.
Secure they slept, nor woke till Morning fair
With rosy fingers op’d the eyelids of the Day.
Farewell, my joy, and by my fingers take
A kiss from him that sends it from his soul.
[Exit Abigall above]
Now, Phoebus, ope the eyelids of the day,
And for the raven wake the morning lark,
That I may hover with her in the air,
Singing o’er these, as she does o’er her young
Hermoso placer de los dineros. [beautiful pleasure of money]
The circle intersected by a horizontal line is often used to illustrate the occult concept of “as above so below,” which means that Man is one with the Universe, the Macrocosm, of which he is a Microcosm or mini-universe. An illustration of this concept which resembles Gail Riplinger’s image is found on a rock music album cover which features an All-Seeing-Eye intersected horizontally:
“In mysticism, [as above,, so below] means that the soul and God are one and the same. In magic, the principle is altogether more complicated. Man is the ‘microcosm,’ whose symbol is a five-pointed star (or pentacle); the universe is the macrocosm, and its symbol is the six-pointed star (or two triangles interlaced–the symbol of Solomon). The occultists of the Middle Ages and the Reformation saw man and the universe connected by thousands of invisible bonds...the notion of an ‘intelligent universe’ in which cosmic rays may carry coded information that can influence the genes... This, then, was the conception that underlay all the magic of the ‘hermetic century,’ 1500 to 1600. Man is an organ in the body of the universe.” (Colin Wilson, The Occult: A History, p. 232)
“The whole universe is the great world, the macrocosm; its parts are small universes in themselves, microcosms. Such a microcosm is man, who is in himself an image of the universe and a perfect being. But the great universe is likewise a man, and as it is ‘god
’, God has a human form.” (Matthew Fox, Coming of the Cosmic Christ, p.213)
The Hermetic axiom “As Above, So Below” – Man’s oneness with the Universe – is also expressed in the New Age belief in “even balance,” which means that the energies of the Macrocosm can be tapped to balance the Microcosm. This occult concept is subtly illustrated in Chapter 10 of In Awe of Thy Word:
“Healing occurs at the balance point of the Macrocosm meeting the Microcosm, it is the floor of understanding where we are when the Holy Spirit meets us in healing, the perfect balance point, the meeting of where the inner meets the outer meets the universal, the perfect place of uniting balance; this is why its the best place to be for healing, start here and heal the within and the outer; this is why there is no separation, the temple floor is planet earth, the grid of light forming is the healing grid developed from our thoughts our vibrations of interaction with the holy spirit and our balanced pivot point. The temple is the perfect dome of above combining the perfect inverted dome below (a bowl), forming a circle of healing around which is in fact a sphere (a three dimensional circle); it is a perfect balanced energy field of equal yin and yang, masculine and feminine, above and below, earth and cosmic, inner outer, physical spiritual, combined oneness with the holy spirit, (what a team). We create this bubble of light, The Temple with our altered state of good intent, natural healing capability available to all; we do this by transferring our lower ego state to our higher ego less state by invoking the greater good the divine good the divine plan (not our own personal will, but ego less), in all our healing. This is healing self less healing.” (Fountain Int.)
This strange configuration in the “Even Balance” chapter of Gail’s book might be a scale, but it more closely resembles the “celestial fish” represented by the Holy Grail. According to DragonKey Press, “It seems that ‘the divine race of the celestial fish’ would have to be the race descended from Satan, Cain, and the Atlanteans, who associated themselves with fish and, just as the passage states, the Sun as well.” Ancient Egyptians and the Constellations states that this fish stands for the Fisher-King, who will be God in the Age of Aquarius!
“The Water Bearer is the herald of the New Age of Aquarius. It is he who figuratively sheds the first drops of water of the New Age from his urn. However the Water Bearer is not of human form as is generally supposed. The Water Bearer is, quite logically, a fish.
“God in the Galactic Season of Eagle/Scorpio was a human headed leonine male with an Osiris beard, in the form of a Sphinx Super Giant in the heavens. He was Hu, the Celestial Sphinx. God in the Galactic Season of Leo was a Lion. God in the galactic Season of Taurus was a Bull, or Nermer/Osiris/Orion affecting the image of the Bull. God in the Age of Aquarius will be a Super Giant Fish; the Fisher King.”
This configuration also brought to mind the pagan tradition of balancing an egg three weeks before the Spring equinox.
“Author’s photo of an egg successfully balanced on end... three weeks before the vernal equinox!” (About.com)
“Many of the symbols of Ostara...are also common to Easter. Eggs have been a symbol of renewed life and fertility since the time of the ancient Egyptians and Persians. In fact, in both cultures people dyed eggs and at them in honor of the returning spring...
“A Wiccan celebration of Ostara, a Lesser Sabbat, includes boiled and decorated eggs. Some Wiccans even do egg hunts and eat chocolate bunnies. If you can celebrate at the exact moment of the vernal equinox, you can even balance a raw egg on one end because of the change in the Earth's tilt. In ritual, witches might bless seeds for future planting. This is also a good time of year for sweeping out negative energies.” (The Complete Idiot's Guide to Wicca and Witchcraft)
THE ROSE CROSS
Why the DECORATIVE Cross ???
In Awe of Thy Word, p. 1106
The Rose Cross Symbol
“The Golden Dawn Rosy Cross symbol. This glyph was worn by on the breast by Golden Dawn members during ceremonies. The design is based on Rosicrucian legend, Kabbalah, and on the colour symbolism taught by S. L. MacGregor Mathers. The twenty-two petals of the Rose, each coloured differently, correspond to the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet - ‘three mothers, seven doubles and twelve simple
’- and the twenty-two Paths of the Tree of Life. From these petals a geometrical figure representing any named spiritual force can be obtained; the name is first transliterated into Hebrew letters and then a figure is drawn which would connect up all the letters of that name if it were drawn upon the Rose. In the middle of the petals of the Rose is a Calvary Cross, symbolic of death and spiritual rebirth. The Rose itself lies upon the four-armed Cross of Nature, symbolic of the physical elements which the adept has to transmute into pure gold in the athanor of his heart. The pentagrams show the symbols of four physical elements plus the fifth or quintessence; the hexagram below the rose shows the moon and five planets, centred on the sun.” (Francis King, 1975, Magic - the Western Tradition, Art and Imagination series, ed. Jill Purce, Thames and Hudson, London)
Whatever happened to the old rugged Cross ???
