Saturn is the planet of darkness and chaos. This is the reason why in current mythology and the occult, Saturn is the designated planet for the allegorical evil god of chaos, darkness and wealth, and that which we know of today as Satan, or the Devil. A god, who in Ancient Egypt was called by the name Set or Seth, and in Greece he went by Cronus. They are always adversaries to the gods who represent the planet Jupiter- who represents love, light, truth, and all that is good. Gods of Jupiter with famous mythological names. Names such as the brother of Set, who was Osiris, and the brother of Cronus, who was Zeus.
When it was decided that a pharaoh would rule the people via darkness and chaos, he would take on the title of the AS ABOVE planet Saturn. They would do this by simply changing their birth names accordingly to a deviation of the Egyptian name Set (Seti, Seth, or Sethos). In doing so, they would then be the SO BELOW man-made representative of this darkness and chaos in which they governed the people. If the Pharaoh was to rule the people through truth, light and love, they would take on the titles of solar deities such as Ra or Amon (Amen).
During the later years of Egypt, at the time of the New Kingdom and Late Period, Set (Seth) was seriously condemned, and any royal ancestor who had connected his name with that deity was also equally condemned. These facts are very important in understanding how these ruling and religious battles had truly played out over the course of our magical history.
What I have found interesting, is that some of these pharaohs named Set or Seti had actually battled with their own family members.For example, Amenmesse (also Amenmesses or Amenmose)- who was the 5th ruler of the Nineteenth Dynasty in Ancient Egypt had usurped the throne from his Satanic half brother, Seti-Merneptah,who may be king Seti II. The cartouches of Seti II’s tomb in Upper Egypt were deliberately erased and then repainted, suggesting that Seti’s rule in Upper Egypt was temporarily interrupted by agents of his half-brother. The name Amenmesse is derived from the Ancient Egyptian god Amon (Amun). Amon is the god of truth and light, and the name Set is for the god darkness and chaos.(Wikipedia)
These same battles on earth were also carried on through the magic of ancient mythology; with stories such as in Egypt of Osiris who is killed by his brother Set (Satan). Also in Greece, where Zeus (Jupiter) had battled his adversary brother Cronus (Saturn), or in the Abrahamic religions, when Cain slays his brother Able, and then Cain is protected by god. In all these stories, order, truth and light is deceived, killed and put to death by the darkness.
There were many pharaohs who we would call today, the followers of Satan. One of these pharaohs I had written about in my article, What is the White House named after? His name was Pharoah Seth-Perisben of the 2nd dynasty. He was the first king of Egypt who placed the image of the god Seth (Satan) in front of his name, in place of the usual Horus falcon. The name Perisben is derived from per-a’a, meaning great house, and ben meaning son or Son of Satan. It was King Peribsen who placed Seth (Satan) atop the palace façade of the “White House of Treasury.”
In the 13th dynasty, there was pharaoh Seth Merybre. During the Nineteenth dynasty of Egypt there were two pharaohs named after Set. One was the first ruler, who was the son of Ramesses I, Seti I, and the fifth ruler, Seti II (or Sethos II), who reigned from c. 1200 BC to 1194 BC. Then in the 20th dynasty with king Setnakhte (1189 BC–1186 BC) of the Twentieth Dynasty of the New Kingdom, who was said to be the father of Ramesses III.
“The land of Egypt was overthrown from without, and every man was thrown out of his right; they had no “chief mouth” for many years formerly until other times. The land of Egypt was in the hands of chiefs and of rulers of towns; one slew his neighbour, great and small. Other times having come after it, with empty years, Irsu (‘a self-made man’), a certain Syrian (Kharu) was with them as chief (wr). He set plundering their (i.e.: the people’s) possessions. They made gods like men, and no offerings were presented in the temples.
“But when the gods inclined themselves to peace, to set the land in its rights according to its accustomed manner, they established their son, who came forth from their limbs, to be ruler, LPH, of every land, upon their great throne, Userkhaure-setepenre-meryamun, LPH, the son of Re, Setnakht-merire-meryamun, LPH. He was Khepri-Set, when he is enraged; he set in order the entire land which had been rebellious; he slew the rebels who were in the land of Egypt; he cleansed the great throne of Egypt; he was ruler of the Two Lands, on the throne of Atum. He gave ready faces to those who had been turned away. Every man knew his brother who had been walled in. He established the temples in possession of divine offerings, to offer to the gods according to their customary stipulations.”(Wikipedia)
This following sentence is very interesting; “He was Khepri-Set, when he is enraged; he set in order the entire land which had been rebellious; he slew the rebels who were in the land of Egypt.” The reason I point this out to you, is because it says, “he was Khepri-Set, when he is enraged.” The word Khepri (Khopri, Khepera) is an Egyptian verb meaning “to become,” “develop” or “come into being”. The name Set, I have already established represents darkness and chaos. Hence, he became Set, or Satan’s Pharaoh to establish order out of chaos, or what Masons would call ORDO AB CHAO (Latin for Order from Chaos).
Was this a necessary evil to exceed the evils of others by causing disorder through chaos with the end goal of order? Sounds like a plan made for heaven, that is played out in a place we call hell. I don’t know about you, but it’s been getting rather hot down in this place lately.
Researchers at The Open University (OU) and The University of Manchester have found conclusive proof that Ancient Egyptians used meteorites to make symbolic accessories.
The evidence comes from strings of iron beads which were excavated in 1911 at the Gerzeh cemetery, a burial site approximately 70km south of Cairo. Dating from 3350 to 3600BC, thousands of years before Egypt’s Iron Age, the bead analysed was originally assumed to be from a meteorite owing to its composition of nickel-rich iron. But this hypothesis was challenged in the 1980s when academics proposed that much of the early worldwide examples of iron use originally thought to be of meteorite-origin were actually early smelting attempts.

Here is an important stone image of an ancient Egyptian ritual showing two dog faced baboons (Papio hamadryas), the scarab beetle, the morning star representing the planet Jupiter, the left and right eyes of Ra, and the suns rays. It is dated from 332–30 bc, now in the Metropolitan Museum.
The baboon- emblems of the lunar divinity in Egypt, occupied a prominent place in the long series of sacred animals, and was consecrated to the god Thoth. As Thoth’s sacred animal, the dog faced baboons were often shown directing scribes in their task. In Greece, Hermes would be the same as Thoth.
The hamadryas baboon was a sacred animal to the ancient Egyptians. In ancient Egypt, the baboon, and dog were sacred animals closely associated with the god of wisdom, Thoth who is also the deity associated with science, systems of writing, arts, and even magic. Thoth (/ˈθoʊθ/ or /ˈtoʊt/; from Greek Θώθ thṓth, from Egyptian ḏḥwty, perhaps pronounced */tʃʼiħautiː/) was considered one of the more important deities of the Egyptian pantheon. In art, he was often depicted as a man with the head of an ibis or a baboon, animals sacred to him. (Wikipedia)
In an ancient hymn to the god Amon-Ra, it is said that “the gods gather as dogs round his feet.” The Greek word for dog is ΚΥΩΝ / κύων, Κύνες or kuon (Kyon). In Greek mythology, Kuon Khryseos was a golden dog sent by Rhea to guard the infant god Zeus and his nurse the she-goat Amaltheia. The words “dog-head” (Greek: κῠνοκέφᾰλοι and Latin cynocephalus) also identified a sacred Egyptian baboon with the face of a dog.
33rd Degree Freemasonic Author, Manly P. Hall says this about the symbol of the dog in his infamous book, The Secret Teachings of all Ages – “The dog, because of its faithfulness, denotes the relationship which should exist between disciple and master or between the initiate and his God. The shepherd dog was a type of the priestcraft.”
The scarabeus is a symbol of the Lord God Almighty in his perfected humanity; and the ancient Hindoos and Egyptians so understood it. The Scarab (Scarabeus) Beetle reproduces itself without sexual contact with another beetle. They are the ultimate virgins of nature.
Many P. Hall in the book “Secret Teachings of All Ages” gives us the occult explanation of Egyptian Scarab Beetle;
Initiates of the Egyptian Mysteries were sometimes called scarabs; again, lions and panthers. The scarab was the emissary of the sun, symbolizing light, truth, and regeneration. Stone scarabs, called heart scarabs, about three inches long, were placed in the heart cavity of the dead when that organ was removed to be embalmed separately as part of the process of mummifying. Some maintain that the stone beetles were merely wrapped in the winding cloths at the time of preparing the body for eternal preservation.
The following passage concerning this appears in the great Egyptian book of initiation, The Book of the Dead: “And behold, thou shalt make a scarab of green stone, which shalt be placed in the breast of a man, and it shall perform for him, ‘the opening of the mouth.’” The funeral rites of many nations bear a striking resemblance to the initiatory ceremonies of their Mysteries.
In Ancient Egyptian mythology, the god named Osiris is the SO BELOW (earth) representative of the AS ABOVE king of all the planets, Jupiter. The great Greek historian Herodotus confirms this fact, Osiris and Jupiter are one in the same. Osiris is not a real person, but a man-made title for the planet Jupiter who the Ancients had worshiped.
The god Osiris on earth through mythology represents the planet Jupiter in the heavens. Osiris is he who is permanently benign and youthful, the creator god, the lord of love, the lord of silence, god of the afterlife, the underworld and the dead. In Greek Mythology, they had assigned Jupiter to their god Zeus who they had also called the “Morning Star and Light Bringer.” Allegorical names that all represent the same planet.
Osiris is the mythological husband of the goddess Isis who represents the Moon, planet Venus, and the star Sirius. These names do not represent real people or Pharaohs, but were titles that were assigned to real people and Pharaohs. The style in which they governed the people through religion and commerce was indicative of their assigned titles, such as with Pharaoh Akhenaten of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt.
Akhenaten was forever made famous for abandoning ancient traditional Egyptian polytheism and abandonment of all other gods, especially the Gnostic religion of Amon (Amun or Amen). Jupiter equated with the Egyptian deity Amon. Akhenaten had introduced the religion centered on the Aten and thus causing much internal conflict amongst the elite of Egypt. The religion of Aten was based on sun and solar worship, symbolically represented by the disk of the sun. Later the worship of Aten was eradicated by Horemheb, who reinstituted the priesthood of Amon Ra and the Gnostic religion based on Amon.
Osiris is also the father of the god of truth and light, Horus. In Egyptian mythology, we find Osiris as the Creator, his son Horus the Preserver, and his brother Typhon the Destroyer. The name Typhon is assigned to Osiris’s brother whose name is Set (Set, Seth, Shaitan, or Molech), which is where we get the modern word for who Westerners call “Satan or the Devil.” Set is the SO BELOW of the planet on the AS ABOVE called Saturn. Hence, the gods Set, Satan, the Devil and Saturn are all one and the same. Just like Osiris of the Egyptians, Zeus of the Greeks, Yahweh of the Israelites, and Jove to the Romans are all just different allegorical names from different ancient cultures, which all represent the very same one planet we know of today as Jupiter.
Since most ancient times in mythology, these two planets have always fought with one another. It is in Ancient Egyptian mythology where we find Set kills his brother Osiris. Hence, darkness and chaos (Set who is Saturn) kills the light and order (Osiris who is Jupiter). These same planetary and earthly battles were carried on by the Greeks, with Jupiter being assigned to Zeus who battles his brother Cronus, and also banished his own son Prometheus to an island to have his liver fed on by eagles for teaching mortals the secret arts and teachings.
the victim being Bali, his murderer Sougriva; and the recital is so nearly identical with that archived in the sculptures and paintings of Uxmal and Chichen-Itza, and recorded in the second part of the Troano MS., that it is more than probable it was imported from Yucatan direct, perhaps by the colonists who, as Valmiki (the author of the “Ramayana”) tells us, settled in the Indio-Chinese peninsula (the Deccan) in remote ages, and who naturally would bring with them the language, customs, traditions, civilization, and folk-lore of their native land.
This same mythology was then interlaced into the Abrahamic religions, with Cain and Able who are both sons of Noah- who also represents the planet Jupiter. Cain slays his brother Able, just like in Egypt when Set had killed his brother Osiris.
In Freemasonry the story of Jupiter and Osiris is changed. We find Jupiter is represented by the Master Teacher, Hiram Abiff who is then killed by three ruffians who happened to be his students. 33rd Degree Freemason, Manly P. Hall confirms this fact that the story of Hiram Abiff is an adaptation of the mythology of Osiris;
“Preston, Gould, Mackey, Oliver, and Pike—in fact, nearly every great historian of Freemasonry-have all admitted the possibility of the modern society being connected, indirectly at least, with the ancient Mysteries, and their descriptions of the modern society are prefaced by excerpts from ancient writings descriptive of primitive ceremonials. These eminent Masonic scholars have all recognized in the legend of Hiram Abiff an adaptation of the Osiris myth; nor do they deny that the major part of the symbolism of the craft is derived from the pagan institutions of antiquity when the gods were venerated in secret places with strange figures and appropriate rituals.” (Manly P. Hall, “Rosicrucian and Masonic Origins”)
This is where it stands as of now in 2013. The god or this world is Satan (Set, Cain, Cronus, Saturn or The Masonic Three Ruffians), who we now know represents darkness and chaos, or what Masons would call CHAO (Latin for chaos). A power that has been in control of the earth’s energies for many centuries now.
Will Osiris ever return, or will we forever be under the Lordship of his brother Set, AKA Satan?
Something tells me that someday we may see Osiris again and these deals do not last forever……………………………
Matthew 13:30 – Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.'”
Yes, even the Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs partied like it was 1999 BC. They are called the cocaine mummies….
“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.” – Buddha
Satan (Set, Seth, Shaitan, Molech or Saturn) is the Lord of Hell and the very god who rules over money and wealth. The name Satan comes to us from Ancient Egypt from a deity named Set, (/sɛt/ or Seth, Sēth, Σήθ /sɛθ/; also spelled Setesh, Sutekh, Setekh, Suty or Sut).
Set represents the power of evil and is the Lord of Hell, who we simply call today Shaitan or Satan. He is the adversary, the accuser who is a god of the desert, storms, and foreigners, and in later myths, the god of darkness and chaos. (more…)
Before there was a White House in Washington D.C., there was another White House, but this particular house was situated in the far East. Also, this White House was not founded by Anglo-Saxon Freemasons such as George Washington either, but by their predecessors, the Ancient Egyptian Priesthood and the “sons of the sun,” the Pharaohs.
In Ancient Egypt their treasury was called the “White House (per-hedj) in Upper Egypt and the Red house (per-desher) in Lower Egypt.” The earliest recorded use of this name was attested from about 3000 BC, early in the reign of King Den. The Ancient Egyptian Treasury had operated just like the U.S. Treasury does today. The Egyptians would collect taxes on all lands and other property of the crown, that were then recorded in the tax-registers of the White House. However back then they didn’t accept fiat cash to pay taxes, but instead only accepted precious metals such as gold, silver, and food such as grain, cattle and also linen for clothing. (more…)
(By Eliphas Levi & Moe) – The Gnostics made it through the igneous body of the Holy Spirit; and it was him who was adored in the rites of the sabbath or of the temple, under the hieroglyphic figure of Baphomet or the Androgynous Goat of Mendes.
TEM OHP AB (Temple omnium hominum pads abba) is Latin for “father of the temple, universal peace of men. ” TEM OHP AB spelled backwards is where we get the word Baphomet. The image we see today of Baphomet is nothing more than a symbol representing initiation into the secret mysteries used by initiates of the Great Work.
The philosophical stone, the universal medicine, the transmutation of metals, the quadrature of the circle, and the secret of perpetual motion are then neither mystifications of science nor dreams of foolishness; they are the terms which express all the different uses of the same operation, which is defined in a way more generally by calling it simply the great work.
The term Great Work (magnum opus), is the process of self initiation into the secret mysteries and self-mastery. True Gnosticism through mastering thyself. Taking control of our minds and bodies for the full and entire conquest of our faculties and our future. The Great Work of transforming ourselves, our minds, our bodies and our worlds into whatever we dream to overturn and change the face of the world.
This force was known to the ancients: it consists of a universal agent, the supreme law of which is equilibrium, and through its direction one immediately holds the great arcanum to transcendental magic. The Law of Three Forces,’ or the Three Pure Ones. The number 3 is the power of all creation which uses the law of three forces to create; and as the great mathematician Pythagoras had said, “all is numbers.”
A force that can be used for good or to create light, which can be called white magic; or used for bad or darkness, which would be black magic. ORDO or CHAO. Light or Darkness. Truth or Lies.
These same patterns are reproduced in all levels of the cosmos, that which is also found in man; this is why he is also called the microcosm for the word κόσμος kósmos, which means “order” as well as “world” or “ordered world.” Living an ordered life that is reconciling the active and receptive in perfect equilibrium with natural law that is governed by the Trinity or Law of Three Forces, so that we live a righteous life of truth, peace and love.
By directing this agent, it is possible to modify the very order of the seasons, to produce at night the phenomena of day, to travel in one extremity of the earth to the other, to see, like Apollonius, what is happening on the other side of the world, to heal or hurt from a distance, to give, in a word, universal success and reverberation.
This agent which barely manifests itself under the uncertain methods of Mesmer‘s disciples, is precisely that which the adepts of the middle ages called first matter of the great work.
