Something that has been drawing my attention lately is the templar order.
Being they were supposedly ordained into action by the Catholic Church and also supposedly the first to discover America after locating New
Foundland..... yet were disbanded (apparently)... could it be they actually ended up in America to establish the foundations of what is being talked
about......and ensure Rome expanded?
I'm going off at a tangent so please don't let this take away from the actual thread direction.
The Templar Knights were originally dubbed the Poor Knights of Christ, by the Prince Abbot of the Abbey that sits atop the recessed hill of the tiny
Roman principality of Seborga.
In exchange for all their worldly possessions, they earned this distinction, and the 7 European Knights who stopped there to pray on their War to the
Crusades were joined then by one of the Abbey’s monks after the agreement and dubbing occurred.
Later their battlefield exploits would win them great fame and prestige and the attention of the Pope who redubbed them the Templar Knights after
awarding them the privilege of being able to set up their encampment in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount.
They were granted extraordinary, powers, and privileges, and autonomy by the Pope. They could travel through any land immune from it’s laws and
it’s rulers, and in fact were allowed to make life and death judgment over anyone who offended or betrayed them, in any land they travelled through
Amongst other things, they set up the first International Banking system, to help poor pilgrims on their way to the Holy Land who were often robbed by
bandits along the journey, the developed a system, where you could deposit your money and valuables with a local Templar office, where a Templar clerk
would issue you a note, for like kind minus a commission, redeemable from the Templar Knights in Jerusalem.
In addition they also offered to manage European Noble’s estates for them, while they were off fighting in the Crusades, for a fee they would tend
to the land and the peasants and conduct their business for them, if the noble died in battle then their estate would go to the Templar Order.
At it’s height the Templar Organization had over a quarter of a million members spread throughout Europe, with only one out of seven actually being
knights and men at arms. All the rest were Clerks and Scribes, and they were in fact the first International Corporation, and the first International
While some contend the charges of heresy leveled at their Grand Masters were trumped up by the King of France who wanted to renege on a large loan the
Templar Order had made to him, others contend that the Templar Knights who thoroughly excavated Solomon’s Temple they were camped on top of, had
found rituals and rites, of the true Hebrew Religion and were practicing mysticism and witch craft with them.
Most Freemasons agree that the surviving Knights Templar sought refuge in Scotland and founded the Scottish Rite Freemasonry movement, that some
contend the highest level of knowledge that can be obtained through that organization are those rituals and rites the Templar Knights discovered
through their expedition.
In fact in Colonial America and right on up to today there was and is a struggle between Masons and Rosicrucian practitioners of Esoteric Knowledge
who were coordinated originally in America by Sir Francis Bacon, promoting his New Atlantis concepts, and true Christians who want a Christian
society, with a large number of us simply caught in the middle as the synergy of those two competing sides vying for power, manifests itself into the
reality on the ground we know today.
A reality some would say Rome and London has always controlled in one way or another, by financing and aiding both sides, looking for an outcome in
between the two competing notions.
One thing important to note, that has powerful and wealthy as the Templar Organization is, that it’s members took vows of poverty and often chastity
too, and that the great wealth they generated did in fact go to Rome.
The real Golden Rule is he who has the Gold gets to make the Rules, and Rome and the Vatican is the richest entity on earth, when it comes to that
