"That religion they call Christianity; the devil they honour they call God...

it is their God and their religion that I hate and will destroy."

—Aleister Crowley, The World's Tragedy



On the grounds of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City there stands a large sculpture of Michael the Archangel slaying the Dragon.  As the photos above and below reveal, at the base of the sculpture, under the Dragon which is being slain by the Archangel, there are two other strange figures, one of the Sun-god and the other, a Crab. Your average sightseer would not recognize the Zodiacal sign of Cancer, which is the Crab, or appreciate its occult meaning. However, the esoteric message of this dramatic scene is one which the occult underground understands very well. It is that of a long-awaited moment of revenge. This epic event will take place when a counterfeit Archangel Michael destroys a scapegoat Dragon—the Roman Catholic Church and Pope—in the sign of Cancer. The Sun-god and Crab positioned underneath the Archangel mean, in astrological terms, the Sun in Cancer, i.e. that the sun will be moving through the sign of Cancer when this watershed event occurs.




Merovingians attach great importance to the Dead Sea Scrolls which prophesy that Michael the Archangel as "The Heavenly Prince Melchizedek.", will preside over the final judgment of Satan, in fulfillment of Revelation 12:7: And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels.

"The heavenly deliverer is Melchizedek. Identical with the Archangel Michael, he is head of the 'Sons of Heaven,' or 'God's of Justice' and is referred to as Elohim and 'el'... Here Melchizedek is portrayed as presiding over the final judgment and condemnation of his demonic counterpart Belial/ Satan, the Prince of Darkness... The great act of deliverance is expected to occur on the Day of Atonement at the end of the tenth Jubilee cycle." (121:300)

Identification of Michael the Archangel with Melchizedek and Elohim resembles the false belief of the Jehovah's Witnesses that that Jesus did not always exist, but was a created being originally named Michael the Archangel. This heretical teaching qualifies the above prophecy as a counterfeit fulfillment of Revelation 12. Although Scripture identifies the dragon in Rev. 12:9 as Satan, the Merovingians have cast the Roman Church as the great Dragon:

"It is of importance to note that the X sign, which became so hated by the Roman Church, was identified with the archangel Michael (Melchizedek) onwards from Old Testament times. The heritage of St Michael was the dynasty of high Zadok priests — a heritage that prevailed in the continuing Messianic line... Fragments of the Prince Melchizedek Document found among the Dead Sea Scrolls indicate that Melchizedek and Michael were one and the same. It is this representation which features in the Revelation when the Archangel Michael (the descending Zadokite power of the Messiah) fights with the Roman Dragon of oppression…" (29:299,177)

"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world..." Rev. 12:9

The motive for portraying the Roman Church as the Dragon is vengeance for the overthrow of the Merovingian dynasty during the Middle Ages and subsequent persecutions of the Knights Templar and related heretical sects. The Donation of Constantine was created expressly to overthrow the Merovingian dynasty and to elevate the authority of the Roman Catholic Pope over secular kings. The arrest of the Knights Templar is described by Michael Howard in Occult Conspiracy:

"Phillip IV passed the [incriminating evidence] on to Pope Clement V and the king and the pontiff conspired to lure the Grand Master of the Order, Jacques de Molay, into a trap on French soil... In reality the wily king was plotting the downfall of the Templars and the death of de Molay. The knights were staying at the Templar citadel in Paris and on 13 October 1307 the king executed his plan. Troops surrounded the building and everyone inside was placed under arrest. Within forty-eight hours warrants had been issued ordering the detaining of every Templar in France, even though this was technically illegal as the Order was answerable only to the Pope and not to civil laws. On 22 November however, the Pope issued a bull to all the Christian rulers in Western Europe ordering them to arrest any member of the Order residing in their countries. The fate of the Templars was sealed." - (25:35,36)

Realm of the Ring Lords by Sir Laurence Gardner described the Albigensian Crusade conducted by the Vatican to eradicate the Cathar heresy in the South of France.

"In the Cathar language of old Provence, a female elf was an albi (elbe or ylbi), and Albi was the name given to the main Cathar centre in Languedoc. This was in deference to the matrilinear heritage of the Grail dynasty, for the Cathars were supporters of the original Albi-gens - the Elven Bloodline which had descended through the Dragon Queens of yore, such as Lilith, Miriam, Bathsheba and Mary Magdalene. It was for this reason that, when Simon de Montfort and the armies of Pope Innocent III descended upon the region in 1209, it was called the Albigensian Crusade. Through some 35 years, tens of thousands of innocent people were slaughtered in this brutal campaign - all because the inhabitants of the region were champions of the original concept of Grail kingship, as against the pseudo-style of monarchy which had been implemented by the papal machine..." (248:1)

The French Cathar name Albi-gens means Elven bloodline, according to Prince Nicholas de Vere, Sovereign Grand Master of the Imperial and Royal Dragon Court & Order.

"The real 'gentry' or to give them another familiar epithet - the Lords and Ladies - blood alone, the members of a genetic strain, the Dragon and Grail families - the Fairy Blood. One could not and cannot 'become' a member of the gentry any more than one can 'become', by initiation or otherwise, a 'witch', a 'vampire', a 'magus', a 'dragon', a 'fairy' or an 'elf'. All these are names which described the 'gentry' and the latter - elf - is a word which originates from albi meaning a white or 'shining one'. From albi derives the French Cathar name Albigensian (Albi + Gens) meaning - 'of the elven blood' - et quid erat demonstrandum." (353:4)


See: All in the Dragon Family

Fundamentalist and Evangelical leaders often refer to the Albigensians as the true Christians of the Middle Ages who preserved the Word of God while under severe persecution by the Catholic Church. For example, David Cloud, who denounces the Roman Catholic Church and the Pope as the Antichrist, glorifies the Albigensian cult in his book, Rome and the Bible:

"The persecutions which were poured out upon these Bible-believing people beginning in the 7th century caused them to be scattered throughout Europe, everywhere carrying with them the New Testament faith. The Lutheran historian Mosheim, writing in the 17th century, says:...They were later known by many names, including Paterini, Cathari, Bulgarians, Patarins, Gazarians, Turlupins, Runcarians, and Albigenses... The term 'Albigenses' probably derived from a Council which was held in the year 1176 at the town of Lombers near Albi, 'for the purpose of examining certain reputed heretics'." (789:34)


See: The Albigenses and Cathari

Any encyclopedia or objective history will document that the Albigensians were a sect of the Cathar movement which was heretical in the extreme. The following entry from Collier's Encyclopedia is representative of other sources:

“The Albigenses followed Manichean dualism in its attempt to solve the problem of evil. They asserted the co-existence of two ultimate principles, a good deity (the God of the New Testament) who created Spirit and Light and a bad deity (the God of the Old Testament) who created Matter and Darkness. Accordingly they condemned marriage and the procreation of children as demoniac.  Yet concubinage was tolerated…and desertion of husband or wife was…praiseworthy. Like the Arians, the Albigenses claimed that Christ was merely a created being, who never really took on a human body, and never actually died on the cross… His redemption gave us only the example of a noble life and a moral lesson of his virtue.  It did not achieve an objective remission of sin.  Believing in metapsychosis, or transmigration of souls, they forbade the use of flesh meat and milk or other animal produce. Rejecting the authority of the Church and State, they appealed to the Scriptures, mostly the New Testament because the Old Law was regarded as mainly a demoniac creation. The taking of oaths, war, and capital punishment were forbidden.

“The Albigenses distinguished between the 'perfect' and mere believers. The former, a small minority, were held to the observances of the ancient Cathari: the consolamentum or spirit baptism through the imposition of hands, which gave the right to preach the new religion, the appareillamentum, or public confession of sins and endura or starvation to death in order to be freed from the flesh…

“While exact figures are not available, it is certain that more than one thousand cities and towns in France were influenced by Albigensianism at the close of the 12th century… Always the Cathari were denounced, not only for doctrinal heresy, but as a menace to the family, state and human society.

“…Their only requirement was faith; for the rest they were allowed to do as they pleased.” (990)

There are other connections between the Albigensian Cathars and the Grail cult, which also flourished in the south of France. This association is mentioned in Bloodline of the Holy Grail:

"Elusive though it is, there does seem to be some link between the Cathars and the whole cult of the Grail as it evolved during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. A number of writers have argued that the Grail romances - those of Chretien de Troyes and Wolfram von Eschenbach, for example - are an interpolation of Cathar thought...Something had been smuggled out of Montsegur just after the truce expired. According to tradition the four men who escaped from the doomed citadel carried with them the Cathar treasure, but the monetary treasure had been smuggled out three months earlier. Could the Cathar 'treasure', like the 'treasure' Sauniere discovered, have consisted primarily of a secret? Could that secret have been related in some unimaginable way to something that became known as the Holy Grail?" (29:51-2,61-2)

Can it also be that modern Cathars are behind the movement to portray the Albigensians as Christian and the Catholic Church as the Dragon / Antichrist / False Prophet? Following the Albigensian Crusade from 1209-1229 and the demise of the Cathars at Montségur in 1244, the Merovingians determined to overthrow the Catholic Church.  In 1305, the Roman curia and pope were forcibly removed to the Merovingian territory of South France, whence a Merovingian pope and papal court managed the Catholic Church for nearly 70 years. Appropriately called “the Babylonian Captivity of the Church,” it was during this period that “papal supremacy” was declared, indulgences were first sold and anti-clericalism was launched—not from Rome but by the Merovingian pope and papal curia in the Merovingian stronghold of South France.


To accomplish the final overthrow of the Roman Church, a crusade has been launched within Christianity to misrepresent the next pope as the Antichrist or False Prophet. The Catholic Church will be tried, in all probability at the World Court in Geneva, Switzerland (home of John Calvin), for crimes against the heretical sects during the Inquisition.


The Pope and Catholic Church will be overthrown by a counterfeit Michael the Archangel under the sign of Cancer which is most likely to occur around the mid-point of the Tribulation Period. Rome will be burned and the Pope will be beheaded as the Dragon—or the Antichrist or False Prophet, depending on the audience targeted for this Merovingian propaganda. This event will be a counterfeit fulfillment of Daniel 12:1 and Rev. 12:7 and the actual fulfillment of Revelation 17 and 18—the destruction of Mystery Babylon the Great. A Merovingian Pope will then become the patriarch of a new Esoteric Church.


In essence, the confrontation between the counterfeit Archangel Michael and the Roman Church represents the culmination of the long war between the Gnostic heresy and Christian doctrine. From the holocaust of true Christianity (Luke 18:8) will rise the mythical Phoenix, a revival of paganism masquerading as Christianity.


Having destroyed the Roman Church, the bogus Dragon, pseudo Archangel Michael will have the audacity to fight against Jesus Christ upon His return, claiming that Jesus is Satan. (Psalm 2) 


When the counterfeit Michael the Archangel slays the counterfeit Dragon, i.e., destroys the Roman Church, every vestige of Christian doctrine will be removed from planet Earth. Thus cleansing the earth—by elimination of all historic creeds and remnants of traditional Christianity as restraining of the Gnostic program of global transformation—will make possible the release of mankind from his bondage to matter and escape to the spiritual realms. At least the Gnostics believe this will happen. 

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. II Thess. 2:12

Who will be the counterfeit Michael the Archangel???


Holy Blood, Holy Grail provides a listing of of Merovingian noble families, from which will come the heir-apparent of the purported royal bloodline of Jesus who is worthy to sit on the throne of the kingdoms of this world. Listed alongside the Plantard and Sinclair (Saint-Claire) bloodlines are "various branches of the Stuarts":

"We cannot point to one man and assert that he is Jesus' lineal descendant. There are at least a dozen families in Britain and Europe today -- with numerous collateral branches - who are of Merovingian lineage. These include the houses of Hapsburg-Lorraine (present titular dukes of Lorraine and kings of Jerusalem), Plantard, Luxembourg, Montpezat, Montesquiou, and various others. According to the 'Prieuré documents,' the Sinclair family in Britain is also allied to the bloodline, as are various branches of the Stuarts..." (31:145-46)

According to Kitty Kelly's book, The Royals (p.262), the late Princess Diana was a member of the Stuart bloodline, fifth removed from Charles II, which claims a greater nobility than the reigning House of Windsor, which is not mentioned in the Merovingian royalty. The contribution of the Stuart family to Freemasonry is commended in Holy Blood, Holy Grail:

"During their stay in France the Stuarts had been deeply involved in the dissemination of Freemasonry. Indeed, they are generally regarded as the source of the particular form of Freemasonry known as Scottish Rite. Scottish Rite Freemasonry introduced higher degrees than those offered by other Masonic systems at the time. It promised initiation into greater and more profound mysteries -- mysteries supposedly preserved and handed down in Scotland. It established more direct connections between Freemasonry and the various activities -- alchemy, Cabalism, and Hermetic thought, for instance -- that were regarded as Rosicrucian…" 31:145-46

In Bloodline of the Holy Grail, Sir Laurence Gardner attempts to prove that the House of Stuart still retains the legitimate right to the throne of England, possessing a living descendant of Bonnie Prince Charlie, whom the Jacobites tried to restore to the British Throne in 1727.  The Jacobite Heritage, however, maintained that Gardner's genealogies are undocumented and cannot be supported by historical evidence.

The foreword to Bloodline of the Holy Grail was authored by Prince Michael Stewart of Albany, who is the Head of the Royal House of Stewart, which surname Sir Laurence maintains is "Stuart," albeit with a different spelling. The Official Home Page of the Royal House of Stewart provides extensive information about the aspiring Prince, who also holds the position of Head of the European Council of Princes. The Jacobite Heritage refutes Prince Michael's claim to fame:

"'Prince Michael' claims to be 'President of the European Council of Princes (Le Conseil Europeen des Princes) - Un Organe Consultatif Constitutionel'. He says that this organisation was founded in 1946 (as the International Council of Government) with Archduke Otto of Austria as its President until 1992 (when 'Prince Michael' succeeded). He also says that the heads of all the major European royal houses belong with the exception of the House of Windsor. [The existence of this body before 1990 cannot be verified. Archduke Otto of Austria has never been president of any such body, nor has the head of any major European royal house ever been a member. The only people who might be members are people who claim legitimate descent from long extinct houses such as Hohenstaufen (ie. charlatans). "Prince Michael" claims to have connections with many European royal houses; he is, however, never seen at any of their celebrations marking baptisms, marriages, birthdays, or funerals.]

Prince Michael is, however, discredited as merely another pretender to the British throne:

"The Royal House of Stuart became extinct in the male line with the death of Henry (IX) Stuart, Duke of York, Cardinal of the Holy Roman Church and Bishop of Frascati, in 1807. He had succeeded his elder brother, Charles (III) Stuart, sometimes known as 'Bonnie Prince Charlie,' in 1788, on the latter's death without legitimate issue (he left one illegitimate daughter, Clementina, who also died without issue). Both were the sons of James (III), Prince of Wales, only son of James II, King of England, Scotland, France and Ireland, (illegally) deposed as King of England and Scotland on 10 Dec 1688, and as King of Ireland six months later, who died in exile in 1701."  (Fantasy Royalty)

In his recent release, The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotland, Prince Michael claims to be the "legal Pretender to the throne of England" (92:302), i.e., he would receive it by default of Prince Charles. This explains the myriad of books and articles predicting that Prince Charles and Prince William will be the Antichrist.

Prince Michael makes the point that England does not have a constitution and therefore its monarchy is little more than a despotic feudal system. (92:255-56) He emphasizes, however, that Scotland has a constitution, in fact, it is the same Masonic model used by the Founding Fathers of the United States! However, George Washington, who knew the importance of a monarchy with a hereditary bloodline, is said to have offered the American crown to Charles III Stuart.

Although The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotland does not document its claims concerning the founding of the American system of government, the implication is clear that the ideal form of world government would be a constitutional monarchy under a restored Stuart monarchy. Led by whom?

Holy Blood, Holy Grail and Bloodline of the Holy Grail are publications of the Prieuré of Sion, the founders of the Knights Templar who were the predecessors of the Rosicrucians and Freemasons. Masonic books are now glutting the market in order to bring forth the Merovingian vision of the 'new world order' governed by a "wise and benign spiritual figure, a priest-king" of the pedigree of Jesus Christ.  The authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail are, however, prudent to assure the future serfs of their modern feudal system that the lineal descendant of Jesus -

"…would not be any more divine, any more intrinsically miraculous, than the rest of us. This attitude would undoubtedly be shared by a great many people today. We suspect it is shared by the Prieuré de Sion as well."

On 14 January 1998 the World Council of Churches reported the formation of the European "Church and Society Commission." The stated purpose of this commission was to help European churches "monitor and react to developments in institutions such as the European Union and the Council of Europe, and to deal with ethical questions facing European society."

Ethical questions will encompass: "...peace, justice and the integrity of creation, reconciliation and relations between churches and governments... democratisation, human rights and minorities, European security, and the environment...(and) the specific responsibility of the churches in member states of the European Union for EU policies." (ENI News Service, 14 January 1998)

The January meeting took place in Strasbourg, the French city which houses the headquarters of the Council of Europe, the European Court of Human Rights, and the European Parliament. It is significant that opening this session was Jacques Stewart, who described the meeting as "historic" and "long awaited."

The Merovingian Stewart family is prominent in the movement to implement global government and religion.  On the web site of Bloodline Of The Holy Grail is found Sir Laurence Gardner's defense of the Stewart claim to the Thrones of Scotland and England, Sir Laurence himself being no less than "Prior of the Celtic Church's Sacred Kindred of St Columba, Chevalier Labhran de Saint Germain and Presidential Attache to the European Council of Princes."  The following is a partial listing of Stewarts who hold influential and powerful positions in the global network moving the world toward political and religious unity.

Prince Michael Stewart of Albany
Head of the European Council of Princes

"In June 1992, HRH Prince Michael James Alexander Stewart, 7th Count of Albany (Scotland) was elected President of the European Council of Princes -- a constitutional advisory body within the European Union. In this regard, he succeeded the Imperial and Royal House of Habsburg Austria, who had retained the office from 1946. The new appointment held significant political implications for Scotland because, in unanimously electing Michael of Albany, some 32 sovereign houses openly proclaimed the continuing de jure Scots monarchy to an international audience – a royal dynasty which, according to British academic historians, had long been extinct." (231)

Jacques Stewart
President, European Ecumenical Commission on Church and Society

The EECCS has offices in Strasbourg and in Brussels, where the main EU headquarters are located. Jacques Stewart, who is also former president of the Protestant Federation of France, opened the first meeting of the Church and Society Commission of the Conference of European Churches (CEC) which took place on 9 and 10 January in Strasbourg. Strasbourg is the French city which houses the headquarters of the Council of Europe, the European Court of Human Rights, and in which the European Parliament holds regular plenary sessions. (ENI News Service, 14 January 1998)

Gary Stewart
Former Imperator, Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis

AMORC is the world's largest Rosicrucian organization. Presently, Gary Stewart is Imperator of the Confraternity of the Rose Cross, Grand Sovereign Master of the British Martinist Order and Knight Commander of the Order of the Militia Crucifera Evangelica. The OMCE…has a strong Templarist influence. Imperator Stewart's authority to lead the world's Rosicrucians can be traced back through Ralph M. Lewis and Spencer Lewis in the American revival of the R+C tradition.

Leland Stewart
Founder, Unity & Diversity Council

Constance Cumbey's "Special Report on Pat Robertson" states: "Leland Stewart displayed large charts of what he called 'The Unity & Diversity Framework.' He explained the coming new world government -- a one world government comprised of bio-regions and some left over nation state boundary regions. He spoke of a forthcoming New World Religion...He praised Pope John Paul II for his meeting with the Dalai Lama and African Animist leaders...Leland Stewart's organization, Unity & Diversity Council, sponsored Benjamin Creme in 1982 in their annual meeting and urged the members of their affiliate organizations to hear him."

Robert Muller was one of the signatories of the first Declaration of World Thanksgiving, which was affirmed by 11 other distinguished international religious leaders, including the Pope and Dalai Lama.

Be sure to note the New Age redefinition of Thanksgiving, as stated by the pastor of St. John the Divine (on which grounds is the sculpture of Michael slaying the Dragon):

"In 1988, at… (the) Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, the pastor, Rev. James Parks Morton, conducted a Thanksgiving day service in which 4,000 children and adults joined with American Indians, tribal leaders, medicine men, witches, nature a 'circle dance' of religious friendship and unity. Morton said the purpose of the dance was to 'redefine' Thanksgiving. Part of the impetus for the ceremony was to create 'a heightened consciousness of the necessity of different religions working together to save our planet." (Texe Marrs, Ravaged By The New Age, p. 74)

Glen Stewart
Authored and maintains the Scottish Stewart Clan Internet Home Page, which at one time had links to numerous Evangelical ministries/ denominations. 


A Revival leader associated with the United Kingdom/Toronto Blessing wrote a testimony which portrays Jesus as a voyeur. This blasphemous testimony was posted on the web page of Teresa Seputis, now titled GodSpeak International, but removed within days of posting our expose. A portion of this testimony is reprinted in the Revival Connection. Teresa also ministered in 1994 with John and Carol Arnott of Toronto Blessing fame in San Francisco (GodSpeak International, John Arnott at SF (July 17, 1994), and in 1996 and 1997 with Randy Clark and the St. Louis Vineyard Christian Fellowship which sponsored Catch The Fire conferences in Moscow. (GodSpeak International, Glimpses of Moscow Catch the Fire I & II)

Of interest to us was the fact that Teresa Seputis' testimony was also posted in an e-mail conference on the Scottish Stewart Clan Internet Home which focuses on the Toronto Revival that has been exported around the world. Within hours after our expose was posted on November 6, 1997, the Scottish Stewart Clan Internet Home blocked access to their discussion groups for all except those having a secret password. Apparently the Stewart Clan does not want the Rosicrucian UK-Toronto Revival connection to be known.

Among the 67 CyberChurch discussion groups which were active on the Scottish Stewart Clan Internet Home we found a broad spectrum of ministries that profess to be Christian: Pentecostals, Revival, Promise-Keeping Men, Vineyard Churches, Church of God, Assembly of God, Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, Seventh Day Adventist, Episcopal, Catholic, Mennonite, Nazarine, Prolife, Prayer Network, ChristNet-UK, ChristNet-Scotland, CellChurch, Worship and Unity.

The Scottish Stewart Clan Internet Home is very pagan with emphasis on the genealogies of various Scottish clans. New Age books such as Bloodline of the Holy Grail also emphasize genealogies, especially the Merovingian families, including the Stewarts. On the Stewart Clan Internet Home is posted the Crest of the Phoenix, which is the occult symbol of resurrection. The Stewart web site also features a "Christian" version of Dungeons and Dragons titled "Dragon Raid."

Of special interest on this Merovingian website is a page about the Stone of Destiny, which has recently been moved from England to Scotland. According to the Stewart Clan interpretation of Bible prophecy, this Stone (formerly Jacob's Pillar) upon which kings of Scotland and England were traditionally crowned, will be used in the coronation of Christ as the King of Israel:

"This Stone is believed to be the original Pillar that Jacob dedicated to God after his all-night wrestling vigil with an angel. From all references, this stone represents the House of David that went into oblivion after the wicked king Zedekiah was dethroned by our Father and later blinded then killed along with his sons. Jacob's Pillar (The Stone of Destiny) was believed to have been subsequently carried by Jeremiah - along with Zedekiah's two daughters - to Ireland. Later, it went to Scotland, then England. Most scholars, along with this writer, see these three moves associated with Ezekiel 21:27: 'I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him.'

"…It will not be used ever again in the crowning of an earthly king because it has been announced that it will go on permanent display in Edinburg, Scotland. Therefore, this move obviously ended the Stone's role in the crowning of kings, ending with King George VI in 1936 ... the last king crowned over the Stone. That being the case, Messiah, according to Ezekiel, will be the next King over the House of David . . . so, the third 'overturn' is yet in effect. In light of these facts, as stated last month, this move (after some 700 years) would seem to be significant as to just how close the Lord's return could be. In other words, from Zedekiah forward, Israel, as a nation, would have no king until Messiah comes (Gen. 49:10) ...and true to prophecy, that has been the case. This means that the scattered and divided kingdom of Israel must be restored and Christ installed as her King...'the most holy' Dan. 9:24"

Although there is disagreement as to which stone is the true Stone of Destiny, and whether it was Jacob's pillar or pillow, the preceding fable is nearly identical to the account presented by Laurence Gardner in Bloodline of the Holy Grail:

"Not only were the Grail Knights and Templars appointed Guardians of the Stewart Sangreal [Holy Grail] in Scotland, they also became protectors of the Stone of Destiny (the Stone of Scone). This most sacred of Scots treasures had been brought to Scotland from Ireland by Fergus Mor mac Erc, the first King of Dalriada, in the 5th century, having originally been carried to Ireland from Judah in about 586 BC. The venerated holy relic was said to be the Stone of the Covenant, known as 'Jacob's Pillow' (Gen. 28:18-22), on which Jacob laid his head and saw the ladder reaching up to Heaven at Beth-el. In a dream God promised Jacob that his seed would generate the line of kingship to follow - the line which in due course became the Davidic succession.

"When the Jews were persecuted by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, Mattaniah, the son of King Josiah (and a direct descendant of David), was installed in Judah. Known as King Zedekiah, he acceded to the throne of Jerusalem in 598 BC. Twelve years later Jerusalem fell to Nebuchadnezzar, whereupon Zedekiah was taken to Babylon and blinded (Jer. 39:6-7, 52:10-11). His sons were murdered, but his daughter Tamar was removed to Ireland (via Egypt and Spain) by the prophet Jeremiah. He also brought the anointed Stone of the Covenant, which became known as Lia Fail (Stone of Destiny). In Latin it was the Saxum Fatale.

"Princess Tamar (Teamhair) gave her name to Tara, the seat of the High Kings of Ireland, and she married Ard Ri (High King) Eochaid, ancestor of Ugaine Mar (Ugaine the Great). Subsequently, over a millenium, Eochaid's successors were crowned in the presence of the sacred Stone. The Irish heritage then progressed to Scotland, where the relic of Judah became synonymous with the Kings of Dalriada. King Kenneth (MacAlpin (844-859) later moved the Stone to Scone Abbey when he united the Scots and the Picts. By the time of William the Lion (d. 1214), the Stone of Destiny bore witness to nearly a hundred coronations in sovereign descent from King Zedekiah.

"On declaring himself Overlord of Scotland in 1296, Edward I of England stole what he thought was the Stone of Destiny. What he actually got was a piece of sandstone from a monastery doorway, which has since rested beneath the Coronation Throne at Westminster Abbey. This piece of rubble is 26 inches long by 11 inches deep (c. 66x 28 cm) and weighs about 335 lbs (c. 152 kg). Royal seals of the early Scots kings depict a much larger installation rock, but this rock was not the sacred Stone of Destiny -- no more than is the medieval masonry prize of King Edward. The real Stone of Destiny is said to be smaller, more naturally rounded, and is of inscribed black basalt, not of hand-cut sandstone. It was hidden by the Cistercian Abbot of Scone in 1296, and it has remained hidden ever since. The Columbian tradition tells us that, on secreting the Stone, the Abbot prophesied that one day 'The Michael' would return to his inheritance." (29:299)

The preceding fabrications of the origin of the Stone of Destiny are Merovingian lore which propagates a variety of narratives intended to prove that the Biblical promises given to Israel will be fulfilled in Britain, America, and other Anglo-Saxon countries. According to this mythology, Jesus married Mary Magdalene and fathered children. After the crucifixion, Joseph of Arimethea took Mary and the children of Jesus to Europe. Of course, Scripture supports neither of these fictions.

Among the Grail romances, the most famous is Parzival, composed by Wolfram von Eschenbach. In this mystical poem, the Grail is identified as a Philosopher's Stone upon which appear inscribed the names of the heirs of the throne of Jesus, typified by the phoenix, which will rise again and restore the inheritance of the Merovingian bloodline:

"You say you yearn for the Grail. You foolish man, I am grieved to hear that. For no man can ever win the Grail unless he is known in heaven and called by name to the Grail. This I must tell you about the Grail, for I know it to be so and have seen it for myself…By the power of that Stone the phoenix burns to ashes, but the ashes give him life again. Thus does the phoenix moult and change its plumage, which afterward is bright and shining and as lovely as before…

"Such power does the Stone give a man that flesh and bones are at once made young again. The Stone is also called the Grail. This very day there comes to it a message wherein lies its greatest power. Today is Good Friday, and they await there a Dove, winging down from heaven. It brings a small white wafer, and leaves it upon the Stone…

"Hear now how those who are called to the Grail are made known. On the Stone, round the edge, appear letters inscribed, giving the name and the lineage of each one, maid or boy, who is to make the blessed journey. No one needs to rub out the inscription, for once he has read the name, it fades before his eyes." (31:297, 63:91-2)

To the establish the Scottish Stewart claims of nobility, the Stone of Scone page presents another aberrant interpretation of Scripture. Ezekiel 37:19-22 is wrested from its proper Hebrew context and given a subtle British-Israel rendering. Note in the following excerpt that the Houses of Judah and Israel are identified as "people" rather than "Jews" exclusively. Thus, the Merovingian Messiah will unite the world, rather than the Jews, having first vanquished another false Christ, i.e. the Pope of the Harlot Church.

"Verse 19: "Say unto them (Israel), Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph (House of Joseph), which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah (House of Judah), and make them one stick (one nation), and they shall be one in *mine hand*." These sticks are literal wooden sticks which were used to represent the divided Kingdom of Israel which had become the House of Judah and the House of Israel. (See 1 Kings 11) The two sticks mentioned in Ezekiel are not books or scrolls -- they are people -- as the Scriptures will document. The sticks simply represent people. Note verses 16 & 17: 'Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.'

"The word 'stick' is literal; that is, it means a stick of wood -- not a book or scroll. (See Strong's No. H6086) Therefore, in writing the name of Judah on one stick and the name of Joseph on the other, is simply showing the separation or division of God's People, Israel, and that by a miracle, He will rejoin them into one people. Our Father says that when asked about the meaning of this joining, tell them as follows: Verse 20: 'Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick (the House or people) of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim (whose leader was Ephraim -- at that time), and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah (join them with the House or people of Judah -- the remnant), and make them one stick (one people), and they shall be one (a single nation, as in the beginning) in mine hand.' Verse 22 con-firms that these two sticks represent people who have been scattered to the four winds -- but will be reunited when Christ returns; read carefully:

"'And I will make them *one nation* (one stick, one people) in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king (Christ) shall be king to them *all* (Shiloh; Whose right the Stone of Destiny represents): and they shall be no more two nations (two sticks), neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:' Can Christ be a King over anything except people? These two sticks being joined are specifically used to remind the descendants of Israel, even today, that they will yet be reunited into one nation -- a single people -- in the original land given to Abraham!."
