In Homers Odyssey, it is written; "Bring hither fire, and hither sulphur bring To purge the palace."
Lucifer is the King of Earth and King of Hell. He was cast out of the Heavens by the archangel Michael. Before his Fall, the angel Lucifer was the fairest and noblest of created things. The cause of his fall was pride, who falls like lightning from heaven. He is now as foul as he was fair before. Lucifer's place is in the pits of Hell, in the center of the Earth. His domain is the Universe.
Lucifer's red garments derive their color from the blood. The meaning of the Latin word Lucifer, in Greek is phosphorus. Red is also the color for the chemical called “phosphorus” that is within our own blood. Phosphorus is a chemical that is white and becomes red when it is heated. It is the light bringer, and one may say the Lord of our blood that can bring us heaven or hell.
Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable, blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish souls? Doubt it not!
The red glow of our aura, burning eternally at the base of the spine, has given rise to the many stories of hellfire and damnation throughout the Age. The angel Lucifer who fell from the Lord because of his pride. Red is also the color of blood and the key to the liver. The word live spelled backwards is evil and the word lived spelled backwards is devil.(3) Hence, this would be the fall of Lucifer, and we too can easily fall from the pride of Lucifer if we do not control our temperaments or live right.
You will find the color red hidden everywhere in occult symbolism. It is often associated with the color of fire, blood, evil and immorality. Red is considered the color of the body or animal man. It irritates, excites and in some cases, causes animals such as humans to go mad. It is the red cape of the Matador that makes the mad bull charge, or the Roman Centurions who wore red on their uniforms in battle as they lived and died by the sword.
33rd Degree Freemason, Manly P Hall had written in, "Magic: A Treatise on Esoteric Ethics;"
Lucifer, on the other hand, is the spirit of excess, the flaming son of rashness and the ruler of sense-gratification, over which he wields dominion with a scepter of serpents. Lucifer is the light-bringer; he is transmuted by man into the fiery demon of war and hate. His power is used by man as the inspiration of lust and passion. He always is opposed to Satan, seeking to snatch the soul of man from the cold embrace of Saturn. He is the heat that incubates the soul, but man uses him as a flame to burn up reason.
This is the same process that occurs with the phosphorus within our bodies to give blood that red color, and which can becomes much darker over time when we simply become hot under the collar, get angry, passionate, fearful or overly passionate, to the point that if we are not careful, our red blood turns black under the cold embrace of Saturn (Satan).
When we are passionate, angry, and/or fearful during fits of hate, our astral auras become streaked with red flames that somewhat resemble lightning and thunderbolts. Red lights are often used by black magicians in rituals, and evil magicians use them to materialize sceptres.
Do you have the keys of wisdom to control the Red Blood of Lucifer within; or does the black magician?
Manly P. Hall explains the process of mastering the spirit of Lucifer within our blood, in "The Lost Keys of Freemasonry;"
The day has come when Fellow Craftsman must know and apply their knowledge. The lost key to their grade is the mastery of emotion , which places the energy of the universe at their disposal. Man can only expect to be entrusted with great power by proving his ability to use it constructively and selflessly. When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the mystery of his Craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands, and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply energy. He must follow in the footsteps of his forefather, Tubal-Cain, who with the mighty strength of the war god hammered his sword into a plowshare.
The brain may devise laws for the blood, but a hot temper leaps over a cold decree - Shakespeare
1. A Dictionary of Proper Names and Notable Matters in the Works of Dante
Dante, the Italian poet of the Middle Ages tells us the story of shining-eyed St Lucy in his allegorical description of sin in a Divine Comedy. While Dante is a asleep, he dreams that he is in Troy when an eagle with golden feathers swoops down snatching him up as far as the fire, where he begins to burn.
As he was still sleeping, a character described as a "shining-eyed St Lucy" picks him up from the Valley.
Upon Dante's awakening, Virgil explains that while he was asleep, Lucy had borne him from the Valley of the Princes to the steps of the Gate of Purgatory. The eagle tells Dante that God's justice is not man's and the damnation of those who never heard of Christ is just, the princes of the world though professed believers, may well be damned. Dante tells us Jupiter is where rulers eminent for justice are disposed in the shape of an eagle representing earth's noblest kings and potentates. The eagle then takes him as far as the fire.
The eagle since ancient times has been a symbol of the planet Jupiter.
The eagle with golden feathers swooping down to snatch up Dante, seems to be like the angels ascending down the ladder from heaven to earth in the story of Jacob's Ladder, and what Homer had described as Jupiter's chain. If the eagle is an angel or spirit representing the planet Jupiter, then this fire Dante sees or feels must come from or be in the realm of this giant gas planet, which then leads us to the shining-eyed St Lucy whom Dante may have regarded as a kind of patron saint (Inf. 2. 98). Dante also mentions Lucia in Inferno Canto II, as the messenger "of all cruelty the foe" sent to Beatrice from "The blessed Dame" (Divine Mercy), to rouse Beatrice to send Virgil to Dante's aid. Lucy in Relation to Dante is described by Virgil, as the one who has borne him from the Valley of the Princes to the steps of the Gate of Purgatory.
The key words above are fire, St Lucy and purgatory. Lucy is very similar to "Lucifer" which is just Latin for the Greek Φωσφόρος Phōsphoros, or Phosphorus, a name meaning “Light-Bringer.” Lucy's Latin name Lucia shares a root (luc-) with the Latin word for light, lux. Phosphorus is commonly found in inorganic phosphate rocks and phosphate is the body’s source of chemical energy. The phosphorus atom is of the nitrogen family, but having that characteristic of firing. The planet Venus is normally associated with the morning star, but there is another morning star, and that planet is Jupiter. This largest planet in our solar system also contains the chemical element known as Lucifer or Phosphorus.
Saint Lucy is commemorated in the ancient Roman Martyrology as one of the seven women, apart from the Blessed Virgin Mary, commemorated by name in the Canon of the Mass. By the 6th century, her story was so sufficiently widespread, that she appears in the Sacramentary of Pope Gregory I. St. Aldhelm (English, died in 709), and later the Venerable Bede (English, died in 735) attest that her popularity had already spread to England, where her festival was kept in England till the Protestant Reformation, as a holy day of the second rank, in which no work but tillage or the like was allowed.

For many ages our great ancestors had known about what we call today, "the philosophers stone." However it wasn't until 1699 when the "modern discovery" of the secret behind the philosopher's stone was first made.
It was in Hamburg, Germany, that a master alchemist named Hennig Brandt had figured a method where he had collected large amounts of urine which he then heated on his furnace to a boil until it was red hot. Once the urine had become red hot, it had started glowing like a bright light and would suddenly burst into fire when exposed to air. This strange fiery liquid substance he collected into jars and then placed it on his laboratory shelves where it sat glowing in the dark.
This is the manna spoken of by Saint John in Revelation 2:17 - He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it. And in Psalm 78:24 - he rained down manna for the people to eat, he gave them the grain of heaven.
Phosphorus is commonly found in inorganic phosphate rocks and phosphate is the body's source of chemical energy. The phosphorus atom is of the nitrogen family, but having that characteristic of firing.
Phosphorus is the philosopher's stone that is the central symbol of alchemy, symbolizing the light within our DNA and in nature. Without phosphorus, there would be no thought or wisdom. This is the atom that fires our blood to produce chemical energy, consciousness, creativity and life. It is the Fiat Lux of all nature.
As a phosphate, it is a component of DNA, RNA, ATP, and also the phospholipids that form all cell membranes. Humans obtain their energy through phosphorus that is extracted from foods within the body by converting it to the chemical energy that is then stored in the body. It makes up 1% of our total body weight and is present in every cell of the body; most of the phosphorus in the body is found (85%) in bones and teeth.
The English phrase "philosopher's stone" comes from the Latin word, "philosophorum." The word philosophorum is a combination of the Greek "philosopher" and a Hebrew word "horum." The meaning of philosopher comes from the word philosophy that is Greek meaning “the love of wisdom.” The word horum which I have found to be related to the Egyptian Horus, the Phoenician King of Tyre, and Hiram, who we also can connect to the Hiram Abiff of Freemasonry. Horus is known as a son of truth, god of light, and the light-bringer. Hiram is also related to the light and truth and Abiff is a Hebrew word meaning "father." Hence, Hiram Abiff means "father of truth or the light."
Isaiah 14:12 - How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!
Phosphorus is also known as Lucifer, the morning star and got its name because it glows in the dark like the planet Jupiter. It is the light bringer who in Hebrew is known as Heylel because phosphorus is the number one chemical substance in nature and life that brings light to the dark. Nothing in nature compares to it and this is why our ancestors had left us so many clues in ancient writings such as the bible to help illuminate how creation was formed and God said, "Let there be light," and there was light."
Revelation 22:16 - "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star."
The philosopher's stone which we know today as "phosphorus" is the Alpha and Omega of nature and essential for all life.
When Carl Sagan had famously said that “we're made of star stuff,” he wasn't joking because the facts are that the cosmos are hidden within all of us humans. We are the SO BELOW here on earth in which the cosmos and heavens are the AS ABOVE.
Albert Pike, 33rd Degree Freemason and Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite said; “Lucifer the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendours intolerable blinds feeble sensual, or selfish souls? Doubt it not! "
And one of Freemasonry's greatest philosophers that has ever lived, 33rd Degree Freemason and master Rosicrucian Manly P. Hall said this about Lucifer in his book, All Seeing Eye; "Lucifer represents the individual intellect and will which rebels against the domination of Nature and attempts to maintain itself contrary to natural impulse. Lucifer, in the form of Venus, is the morning star spoken of in Revelation, which is to be given to those who overcome the world." (more…)
