And On 9/11, A Reminder Of The Occult Connection












(Excerpted and expanded from the original series on APOLLYON RISING 2012 by Dr. Thomas R. Horn)

In the previous entry, the Akedah, the account of the binding of Isaac on Moriah, proved enlightening when viewed within the distorted importance the story holds for the occultists and their plans. A second important lesson from the Moriah narrative related to phenomena before and after 9/11 involves how nation-influencing angels—both good and evil—can be “loosed” or “bound” above countries based on decisions made by and allowed of national leaders. In the Moriah example, Abraham’s obedience not only resulted in an angel staying the sacrifice of Isaac, but according to the Genesis Rabba from Judaism’s classical period (a collection of rabbinical homilies on the book of Genesis), Abraham’s submission directly affected the angelic “princes of the heathens” as well.

From Genesis Rabbah 56:5, we read:

Here God immediately rewards Israel when Abraham binds Isaac to the altar by binding the princes of the heathens—the angels who served as guardians to the heathen nations—thus making them subservient to Israel. But this fettering only lasts while Israel upholds its part of the covenant with God. When Israel fails to do so, God unfetters the princes, and the heathen nations take their revenge on Israel.[i][i]

In view of recent history, and given scriptural support for the idea that supernatural forces can be set in motion or “loosed and bound” above nations in response to government conduct, speeches, symbols, rituals, and gestures, we note with special interest not only the “angel in the whirlwind” that Bush invoked for America’s favor, but also the “evil” angel that rules the very territory Bush joined the United States in conflict with—Ahriman, the most powerful of all dark angels. In the tenth chapter of Daniel, Ahriman is indirectly referred to as the “prince” over Iraq/Babylon, where the prophet had been fasting and praying for twenty-one days, hoping the God of Israel would see his fast and grant him revelation of Israel’s future. On the twenty-first day of his fast, the angel Gabriel appeared and informed Daniel, “From the first day thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words” (Daniel 10:12). If an angel had been dispatched from heaven from the first day, why did it take twenty-one days before he arrived? Gabriel provided the answer by explaining that a supernatural Persian “prince” had opposed him for twenty-one days. Not until Michael, the archangel, came to assist in this conflict was Gabriel free to continue his journey (Daniel 10:13).

In Persian theology, the spirit that opposed Gabriel is identified as Ahriman—enemy of Ahura Mazda. According to Zoroastrianism, he was the powerful and self-existing evil spirit from whom war and all other evils had their origin, and he was the chief of the cacodaemons, or fallen angels, expelled from heaven for their sins. The Bible identifies him specifically as “the prince of the kingdom of Persia” (Iraq/Iran), the same area that George W. Bush, like his father before him, viewed as integral to the launching of a New World Order. In this regard, the Bushes fulfilled prophecy, as the beginning of Babylon was the Tower of Babel, where at the macro level Satan’s strategy to formulate a one-world system was initiated. Thereafter, Babylon is viewed as equivalent to a satanic world system at enmity with God and the final “kingdom-spirit” against which God will do battle (Revelation 14:8; 17:5). The Bushes are learned men and members of more than one esoteric order, implying that they may have known exactly what they were doing, and why.

Given widespread doctrine among various religious orders concerning this cause-and-effect relationship between “binding and loosing” of geopolitical supernaturalism, a question arises: During the American invasion of Iraq, was the Bush administration or a multinational power elite operating behind U.S. political machinations trying to “bind” something in or above Babylon through “loosing” the angel in the whirlwind? In other words, was an intentional effort made to magically limit interference from Ahriman by summoning the power of Metatron and Shekinah? Mystical language used by officials during this time frame did seem to be summoning appropriate forces connected to these entities, including the “angel in the whirlwind,” the “mother of all bombs” (MOAB), and even the title by which the U.S. battle plan was launched—“Shekinah,” pronounced “Shock-n-Awe.” The specifically chosen words, gesticulations, and emblems so employed by key members of the U.S. administration following 9/11 were in fact stunning in their parallel to the deeper destiny for which occultists believe America was designed, and which illuminated fraternities know is graphically depicted in the history, mottoes, layout, and architecture of the nation’s capital. When the esoteric statements employed by the Bush era involving a New World Order rising from the ashes of chaos is reflected against the “prophetic” design of Washington DC, even the hardiest skeptic is drawn to consider that an occult hand had been at work beginning well over two hundred years ago and up through this century in the “symbols and emblems” associated with the U.S. cities, buildings, monuments, numbers, and official seals that played a role before, on, and after 9/11. As David Flynn, author of the best-selling book, Temple at the Center of Time, e-mailed me to say:

The combined occultic numbers, places, people and timing involved in the “terrorist attack” is so consistent with the goals of the Mystery organizations concerning “the secret destiny of America,” that it goes beyond the agency of mere humans alone.

Researcher David Bay, director of Cutting Edge Ministries ( agreed, interpreting the events surrounding 9/11 as a catalyst for the last stage in the Masonic Baconian New Atlantis. Bay pointed out that even the street design in Government Center in Washington DC:

…has been cunningly laid out in such a manner that certain Luciferic symbols are depicted by the streets, cul-de-sacs and rotaries…[which demonstrate] that the American continent was to [rise from the ashes of chaos] as the new “Atlantis,” and its destiny was to assume the global leadership of the drive to the New World Order. From the beginning, the United States of America was chosen to lead the world into this kingdom of Antichrist, and Washington DC was to be its capital.[ii][ii]

Ordo Ab Chao: Through the Twin Towers Toward Atlantis

The antediluvian Atlantis, which Bacon utilized as metaphor and which remains so important to the occultists, was mentioned by Plato in his dialogues Timaeus and Critias as lying beyond the Pillars of Hercules (the Straits of Gibraltar). In a drawing on the title page of his Instauratio Magna (“Great Instauration”), Bacon depicted the Pillars of Hercules (using classic Greek pillars) with a ship sailing through them to conceptualize movement past the limitations of existing scholarship into the area of unlimited scientific and anomalous knowledge, represented in his Rosicrucian utopia, The New Atlantis. Bacon, like other medieval thinkers, including Descartes and John Dee, was interested in occult and mystical sciences, practicing alchemy and exhibiting an enduring interest in the philosophy and rituals of secret societies, especially as it involved ciphers, symbols, and cryptic communication. Bacon employed geometry, mathematics, and poetic language as tools for concealing “in plain sight” archetypes that only metaphysicians would be able to decipher in order to find what he had enticingly hidden. History connects these works of Bacon to the founding American Freemasons and Rosicrucians, some of whom believed he was an Ascended Master of Wisdom (Mahatmas), or reincarnated, “spiritually enlightened being” of the theosophical concept who had come to bestow hidden knowledge. Notably, Bacon’s use of pillars and specifically the Pillars of Hercules advanced the popularity of figurative portals beyond which await the treasure of lost knowledge, paranormal power, and a novus ordo seclorum. Metaphors related to such pillar mysticism also led to the combination of not two, but three pairs of pillars known today as the “Three Great Pillars of Freemasonry.” The ritualistic importance of these three sets of pillars is commented on by David Stevenson in the Cambridge University book, The Origins of Freemasonry:

Assuming the pillars were (as in later masonic practice) regarded as flanking the entrance to the lodge, then the mason would be seen when he passed between them as simultaneously entering a holy place (the Temple); acquiring lost knowledge or secrets (as they were also the [Enochian] pillars of knowledge); and venturing from the known to the unknown in search of new worlds (as they were also the Pillars of Hercules).… [This] would have been immensely satisfying in an age that believed that the more complex a symbol was the more powerful and valuable it became.[iii][iii]

Symbolically, the Twin Towers in New York (as pillars) echoed the Masonic archetype where the Pillars of Hercules, Enoch, and Solomon likewise represented passageways beyond which one could travel to reclaim what Masons believe was lost in Atlantis, a time known to the Greeks as the “Golden Age of Osiris” and to the Egyptians as “Zep Tepi.” Accordingly, if before 9/11 leaders of truly dark powers determined that the ascendancy for the New Atlantis had arrived, occult magical tradition suggests they might have triggered an “event” surrounding a mega-ritual-offering (the people who died on 9/11?) powerful enough to compel the supernatural forces over the nation to move their invisible empire beyond the symbolic pillars in New York—which represented American industrial and financial institutions—by igniting global changes accompanied with appropriate symbolism within the context of ultra-national alchemical transformation. This not only would have been to facilitate a universal call for “order out of chaos,” but also to: 1) embed subtle images in the minds of uninitiated citizens for the purpose of creating contagious memes in support of a “war on terror” and tolerance of diminishing Domestic freedoms; and 2) communicate to initiates around the world that the oracular date for the culmination of their New Atlantis had arrived. If what happened on 9/11 was thus meant to signal these objectives, it would necessarily be accompanied by appropriate and redundant symbolism communicating to the members of the Order that, to reach the New Atlantis, movement beyond the Pillars (in this case, the Twin Towers in New York and what they represented) was occurring.

Regardless of how fantastic it seems, a thorough examination of the events happening on and following 9/11 affirm what linguistic specialists and semioticians I consulted called “persuasive evidence of an open conspiracy,” or, as one flatly stated, “an undeniable occult signature linked to 9/11.” Some pointed out how the number eleven—a number known as the “eleventh hour,” or last opportunity to stop an emergency—turns up repeatedly as a “marker” tied to 9/11. The phone number called during the emergency (9-1-1) likewise matches the date on which the Twin Towers were attacked. But in occult numerology, the number eleven means much more than this. It is the first Master Number and represents a dark vision. When doubled to twenty-two (22), the vision is combined with action. When tripled to thirty-three (33)—the signal of the highest and most important action in Freemasonry—it means vision and action have combined to produce accomplishment in the world.

Is it therefore mere coincidence that exactly eleven years to the date following George H. W. Bush’s “New World Order” speech (and eleven years before 2012), on September 11, 2001, Flight 11 crashed into the Twin Towers, whose appearance side by side not only formed a Masonic-like, pillared gateway, but also architecturally depicted the number eleven? Also consider that Flight 11 hit the Twin Towers first, and Flight 11 had eleven crew members; New York was the eleventh state added to the Union; the words, “New York City” have eleven letters; Afghanistan, the first nation the U.S. attacked following 9/11, has eleven letters; the name George W. Bush has eleven letters; the words, “The Pentagon,” which was also attacked on 9/11, have eleven letters; and Flight 77—an additional twin Master Number—hit the Pentagon, which is located on the seventy-seventh (77th) meridian, and the foundation stone for the Pentagon was laid in 1941 on September 11 in a Masonic ceremony.

While numerous additional references to the number eleven exist in connection with the events of 9/11, other important dates, equally marked by the number eleven, also changed the course of history. For instance, the end of World War I in 1918 occurred on the eleventh day of the eleventh month at exactly the eleventhhour, when the armistice agreement with Germany came into effect. Another example is the assassination of John F. Kennedy in the Masonic Dealey Plaza on the eleventh month, the twenty-second day, and on the thirty-third parallel (note the occult numerological equation again—11-22-33—for “vision, action, accomplishment”). More importantly, the Bible connects the number eleven with the coming of Antichrist in the book of Daniel. When referring to the beast with ten horns (Roman Empire), the prophet, as he was considering these horns, said, “there came up among them another little horn” (Daniel 7:8). According to scholars, this eleventh horn is the Antichrist, who will derive power from a revived Roman Empire and New World Order, which some believe was earnestly set in motion on 9/11. Lastly, in Jewish mysticism and esoteric numerology, the number eleven is considered “the essence of all that is sinful, harmful, and imperfect.”[iv][iv]
