TITLE: FREEMASONRY PROVEN TO WORSHIP LUCIFER , PART 2
"This symbol is probably the most easily recognizable Masonic symbol in the world, even more important than the Compass/Square/Rule. Most people assume that these two birds are Eagles, but such an assumption would be deadly wrong. These two birds are the Phoenix Bird of Ancient Egyptian Mythology. Listen to the explanation from Masonic author, Manly P. Hall, 33 Degree, K.T., in his book, The Phoenix: An Illustrated Review of Occultism and Philosophy . [Before we begin, I find it highly interesting that Hall would admit, by his use of this title, that Freemasonry is occultic].
"Among the ancients a fabulous bird called the Phoenix is described by early writers ... in size and shape it resembles the eagle, but with certain differences. The body of the Phoenix is one covered with glossy purple feathers, and the plumes in its tail are alternately blue and red. The head of the bird is light in color, and about its neck is a circlet of golden plumage. At the back of its back the Phoenix has a crest of feathers of brilliant color ... The Phoenix, it is said, lives for 500 years, and at its death its body opens and the new born Phoenix emerges. Because of this symbolism, the Phoenix is generally regarded as representing immortality and resurrection ... The Phoenix is one sign of the secret orders of the ancient world and of the initiate of those orders, for it was common to refer to one who had been accepted into the temples as a man twice-born, or reborn. Wisdom confers a new life, and those who become wise are born again." [p. p. 176-77]"
From Final Appeal on LGPedia:
Jonas: "We know Bree's Elder's connected to the coat of arms requesting for the marionette. (Cut to a shot of the coat of arms.) Centuries old, possibly from England... (Cut to a close up of the symbol and motto.) The symbol and the quote on it are the work of Crowley. (Cut to a close up of the crest.) And the crest - the things sitting at the top - are two back-to-back phoenixes, which... symbolizes some sort of resurrection."
But why a two-headed Eagle be adopted by Masonry, instead of only a one-headed Eagle? Masonic author, R. Swinburne Clymer, writing in The Mysteries of Osiris , 1951, explains. "When they [pagans] desired to express the renewal, or beginning, of the year, they represented it in the form of a door-keeper. It could easily be distinguished by the attributes of a key ... At times, they gave it two heads, back to back ... In time, this [back-to-back key symbol] became the double-headed Eagle of symbolic Masonry." [p. 42]
See also: "On the Mass of the Phoenix"
"What is the Mass of the Phoenix? The answer is not a simple as you might think. The Mass of the Phoenix makes its debut as Chapter 44 of Aleister Crowley’s Book of Lies with no real explanation. At least the “Official Instructions of the A.’.A.’.” gives a basic description of the Mass of the Phoenix:"
Phoenix (mythology) on Wikipedia:
"A phoenix is a mythical bird with beautiful gold and red plumage. At the end of its life-cycle the phoenix builds itself a nest of cinnamon twigs that it then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix arises."
"Although descriptions (and life-span) vary, the phoenix (Bennu bird) became popular in early Christian art, literature and Christian symbolism, as a symbol of Christ representing his resurrection, immortality, and life-after-death."
"Originally, the phoenix was identified by the Egyptians as a stork or heron-like bird called a benu, known from the Book of the Dead and other Egyptian texts as one of the sacred symbols of worship ."

In the meantime take a closer look at the FacilityJ symbol, it's the Phoenix!
Watch "Isis Project - A ReGenesis". (resurrection anybody?)
Read the Jiana blog on the Coalition site about Ra, Horus and Osiris.
Check out the Library of Alexandria pics in the Worldfiles videos.
It's all there and has been for quite sometime. I don't know how many people are aware of the details but obviously the Creators are. ;)
