The Third Temple of God

Its conferral week ( May 6 -13 ) again for the Grand York Rite of the Philippines, a bi-annual event for conferring Master Masons who are illuminated to further their study of the biblical lessons in Freemasonry. The lessons consist of the three bodies of the York Rite; the Capitular Degrees, the Council Degrees, and the Chivalric Orders of the Commandery.

Through the untiring  dedication of the Grand Secretary-Recorder Most Excellent Danilo C. Datu, KYGCH, of the Grand York Rite of the Philippines, thirty three  candidates have completed the Royal Chapter Degrees on May 6.

Present also during the conferral were Most Illustrious Evaristo Leviste, KYGCH, Representative of the General Grand Council International for Japan and Philippines, Most Illustrious Jerry Townsend of the General Grand Council International;  Incumbent Most Excellent Grand High Priest Manny Bravo, and other Grand York Rite Officers.

I was so thankful to be part of the conferral team as Master of the Second Veil, the representation drama of the  tribe of Ephraim, the bull, and by the banner color purple.


The Tabernacle

The Tabernacle  “residence” or “dwelling place”), according to the Hebrew Bible, was the portable earthly meeting place of God with the children of Israel from the time of the Exodus from Egypt through the conquering of the land of Canaan. Built of woven layers of curtains along with 48 standing boards clad with polished gold and held in place by 5 bars per side with the middle bar shooting through from end to end and other items made from the gold, silver, brass, furs, jewels, and other valuable materials taken out of Egypt at God’s orders, and according to specifications revealed by Yahweh (God) to Moses at Mount Sinai, it was transported  by the Israelites on their journey through the wilderness and their conquest of the Promised Land.

Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem superseded it as the dwelling-place of God some 300 years later.

Exodus 31 – The Call of Bezallel and Aholiab
Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: “See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, to design artistic works, to work in gold, in silver, in bronze, in cutting jewels for setting, in carving wood, and to work in all manner of workmanship.
And I, indeed I, have appointed with him Aholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and I have put wisdom in the hearts of all who are gifted artisans, that they may make all that I have commanded you:”

The First Temple, the Temple of King Solomon

 The task to build the first temple was given to Solomon, because  David, his father   has shed  much blood and waged so much wars for the house of Israel.
After the death of his father David, Solomon issued the orders for the building of the First Temple to commence:

You know that my father David could not build a house for the name of the Lord his God because of the wars which were fought against him on every side until the Lord put his foes under the soles of his feet. (1 Kings 5:3).

The building of the First Temple was a monumental task. Phoenician craftsmen were employed to build the Temple. Construction began in the fourth year of Solomon’s reign and took seven years:

Then King Solomon raised up a labor force out of all Israel – and the labor force was thirty thousand men . . . Solomon selected seventy thousand men to bear burdens, eighty thousand to quarry stone in the mountains, and three thousand six hundred to oversee them. (1 Kings 5:13; 2 Chronicles 2:2).

The stones were hewn from a quarry and brought to the Temple:

And the temple, when it was being built, was built with stone finished at the quarry, so that no hammer or chisel or any iron tool was heard in the temple while it was being built. (1 Kings 6:7)


Destruction of First Temple Foreseen

The prophet Jeremiah predicted the destruction of the Jerusalem and a seventy year captivity of the people. He also pronounced judgment on those who would destroy her, namely the Babylonians. It was only a matter of time until the times of the First Temple were to come to a sad and terrible end:

And the whole land [of Israel] shall be a desolation and an astonishment, and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years. Then it will come to pass, when seventy years are completed, that I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation, the land of the Chaldeans, for their iniquity,’ says the Lord; ‘and I will make it a perpetual desolation. (Jeremiah 25:12, 13).

In 587 BCE, the Holy Temple  in in Jerusalem was destroyed  by Nebuchadnezzar II.

King Nebuchadnezzar II  (634-562 BCE) was the greatest king of ancient Babylon, succeeding his father, Nabopolassar.  He married Amytis of Media (630-565 BCE) and so secured an alliance between the Medes and the Babylonians (Amytis being the daughter or granddaughter of Cyaxerxes, the king of the Medes) and, according to some sources, had the Hanging Gardens of Babylon built for her to remind her of her homeland in Persia.

Upon ascending to the throne, Nebuchadnezzar spoke to the gods, in his inaugural address, saying, “O merciful Marduk, may the house that I have built endure forever, may I be satiated with its splendor, attain old age therein, with abundant offspring, and receive therein tribute of the kings of all regions, from all mankind” and it would seem the gods heard his prayer in that, under his reign, Babylon became the most powerful city-state in the region and Nebuchadnezzar II himself the greatest warrior-king and ruler in the known world. He is portrayed in unflattering light in the Bible, most notably in the Book of Daniel and the Book of Jeremiah.


The Second Temple

as rebuilt by the first Grand Council Zerubbabel as King, Joshua as High Priest, and Prophet Haggai as Scribe.

Image result for the second temple

In the year 587 BCE the Temple of Solomon was razed and burned to the ground by Nebuchadnezzer—King of the Chaldeans—the faithless Zedekiah—the last of Judah’s kings—was made sightless and cast into a dungeon in Babylon. The Holy Vessels—the famous brazen pillars—and all the treasures of the King’s house-of his palaces and of his princes were carried away. Judah lay waste. The Temple of God was desolate.
The remnant of the people—except the very poor that escaped the sword—were made captives in a foreign land.
Forty-eight years after the destruction of the first Temple—in the first year of his reign—Cyrus-King of Persia issued an edict—granting permission to the captives to return to their own land and to rebuild the Temple of their God. He appointed Zerubbabel—a Prince of the House of Judah—Governor of the people. Under his guidance and direction the rebuilding of the Temple at Jerusalem was begun.
But owing to the poverty of the people—and the hindrance by their enemies-very little was accomplished until eighteen years later—when Darius the King issued an edict—that the Jews should no longer be hindered or impeded in the noble and glorious work of rebuilding the House of the Lord. Darius also caused the Sacred Treasurers to be sent back to Jerusalem—and by royal command directed that the expenses of rebuilding the Temple should be paid out of the King’s Treasury.
In the year 520 B.C. under the stirring appeals of the prophets—Haggai and Zechariah—Zerubbabel once more began rebuilding the House of the Lord. It was completed in the year 516 B.C.

The Burning of Second Temple by the Romans

On the 10th of August, in A.D. 70 — the 9th of Av — in Jewish Calender, the Temple was burned again. Titus, the Roman Emperor, took the city and put it to the torch, burning the Temple.

The destruction of the Temple caused the beginning of the scattering of the Jews throughout the world.  For the next 1900 years the Jews would have no authority in the land God gave to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Constantine and the “Christian” Roman Empire

In A.D. 324 Emperor Constantine and his mother Queen Helena were converted to Christianity. Aelia Capitolina was renamed Jerusalem and the title of “Holy City” was restored to her. It was now, however, considered the Holy City of Christianity, not the national capital of the Jews. The pagan temple Hadrian was destroyed and the church of Holy Zion was built on the Temple Mount. These conditions lasted under A.D. 362 when the Roman emperor Julian the Apostate permitted the Jews to return.

A Plan to Rebuild

There was one occasion after the destruction of the Second Temple when the Jews were able to formulate plans to rebuild their temple. The man behind this project was the Roman Emperor, Flavius Claudius Julianus, a nephew of Constantine – also known as Julian the Apostate because of his opposition to Christianity. Julian planned the project in the last year of his reign in A.D. 363. Julian rescinded all the anti-Jewish laws that his uncle Constantine had instituted. He issued an edict that the Temple be rebuilt in Jerusalem. This caused a great deal of excitement among the Jews. From far and wide, Jews came to Jerusalem to help in the rebuilding work. Julian supplied the necessary funds and appointed Alypius of Antioch, the Roman Governor of Great Britain, to carry out the project. Jews from all over gave from their wealth upon the projected work of rebuilding the Temple. The roads to Jerusalem were filled with multitudes of Jewish men and women who had hopes of seeing a Third Temple built.

Then sudden tragedy struck. The foundations of the Second Temple were barely uncovered when flames of fire burst forth from under the ground. The flames were accompanied by large explosions. The cause for the flames were probably the result of noxious gas in the subterranean passages catching fire. The workmen fled and the building was stopped, never again to be restarted. Many believed that the explosion and fire were a demonstration of the anger of God.

With their hopes dashed, the Jews were then driven into Exile and became wanderers in foreign lands. They were people without a homeland. For some eighteen centuries they would be dispersed and persecuted. Throughout time their thoughts were of the Temple which once stood in Jerusalem and prayers for its restoration.

 Cursed of God?

In the early years, the Christians looked upon the Temple Mount as a place that God had cursed. As Christianity gained foothold in the Roman world the Temple Mount was left to become a desolate rubble heap. In A.D. 534, over the site of Solomon’s elaborate palace, the Emperor Justinian built mighty substructures as foundations for the New Church of St. Mary. While other holy sites in Jerusalem were explored and identified, the Temple Mount was neglected.


The Building of the Third Temple
Spiritualizing the Temple of God.
Starting at the end of the quote from the Temple Illustrated Edition Bible, above, we read:

“… In all the rich symbolism of Ancient Craft Masonry two symbols, or symbolic themes, predominate. One is the search for light; the other is the labor of building. The source of light is the Holy Bible, and the grand representation of the builder’s art is King Solomon’s Temple …. It was natural that imaginative stone Masons, long before the development of anything like our modern fraternity, should have felt a kinship with the great builders of all ages. It was natural also that they should have acknowledge a peculiar attraction for the most famous and glorious of all building enterprises, King Solomon’s Temple and Citadel. Interest and attraction for the wonderful structure on Mt. Moriah have increased rather than diminished … until today the Temple of Solomon is the spiritual home of every Mason.” [Masonic Holy Bible, Temple Illustrated Edition, A.J. Holman Co., 1968, p. 11-14]

A short while later, these authors explain: “King Solomon’s Temple was the perfect architectural expression of the religious faith of a people.” [P. 25] “Perhaps Masonic interest also increased from a more or less incidental notice of the Temple to a final preoccupation with it as a symbol of spiritual man. [P. 29; Emphasis added]

Indeed, Masonic leadership has spiritualized the meaning of the Temple in the life of each and every Mason. Albert Mackey explains: “To the Master Mason, the Temple of Solomon is truly the symbol of human life … it becomes a fit symbol of human life occupied in the search after Divine Truth, which is nowhere to be found … Such is the symbolism of the first Temple, that of Solomon, as familiar to the class of Master Masons.” [“Encylopaedia of Freemasonry, Mackey, p. 774; Emphasis added]

However, while Solomon’s Temple is the symbol of mortal human life to the Master Mason, a higher class of Masons ascribe a different interpretation to yet another Temple. Listen to Mackey explain:

“But there is a second and higher class of the Fraternity, the Masons of the Royal Arch, by whom this temple symbolism is still further developed. This second class, leaving their early symbolism, and looking beyond this Temple of Solomon, find in Scriptural history another Temple, which years after the destruction of the first one, was erected upon its ruins; and they have selected the second Temple, the Temple of Zerubbabel, as their prominent symbol. And, as the first class of Masons find in their Temple the symbol of mortal life, limited and perishable, they, on the contrary, see in this second Temple, built upon the foundations of the first, a symbol of life eternal, where the lost truth shall be found, where new incense shall arise from a new altar, and whose perpetuity their great Master had promised when, in the very spirit of symbolism, he exclaimed, ‘Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up’.”

“And so to these two classes or Orders of Masons the symbolism of the Temple presents itself in a connected and continuous form. To the Master Mason, the Temple of Solomon is the symbol of this life; to the Royal Arch Mason, the Temple of Zerubbabel is the symbol of the future life. To the former, his Temple is the symbol of the search for truth; to the latter, his is the symbol of the discovery of truth; and thus the circle is completed and the system made perfect.” [Ibid., Pages 774-775; Emphasis added]

The Temple is so very important to the Mason that he took the final step to spiritualize its meaning. Master Masons look upon Solomon’s Temple as their symbol of human life, while Royal Arch Masons consider the inferior Temple of Zerubbabel as their symbol of eternal life! The two symbols, taken together, form a spiritual circle, thus “perfecting” the Masonic symbolic system!

 The Tribe of Dan and Freemasonry
 “Dan was the fifth son of Jacob and his mother was Bilhah the handmaid of Rachel.Rachel was very envious that her sister Leah had given Jacob four sons. Rachel told her husband to give her children or else she would die. Jacob was angry with Rachel, his favorite wife. Rachel gave her handmaid, Bilhah, to Jacob as his wife. Bilhah conceived, and bare Jacob a son. Rachel said, “God has judged me, and has also heard my voice, and has given me a son: therefore she called his name Dan.”(Genesis 30:1-6).
The Tribe of Dan
Although we do not take the myths of the “Ten Lost Tribes” of Israel seriously, it is interesting to examine the strange maneuvers of the Tribe of Dan. Their disappointing performance seems to have been anticipated, enigmatically, by Jacob on his deathbed as he prophesied over each of his sons:Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

Genesis 49:17

This identification with a serpent was changed by Ahiezer, the leader of the Tribe of Dan during the Exodus, to an eagle with a serpent in its mouth as their tribal ensign.

When the conquest of Canaan was completed and the tribes received their land allocations, the Tribe of Dan was given the land west of Benjamin, placing them between Jerusalem and the Philistines. (Even though Dan was one of the largest tribes, it received one of the smallest – and most troublesome – allocations.)

The primary hero of this tribe is, of course, Samson. Although the subject of several colorful episodes, he actually accomplishes little of practical value. His riddle involving bees resulted in an additional identity idiom for his tribe.

After Samson’s death, the tribe was unable to adequately deal with their Philistine adversaries and sought an alternative location, which was ultimately found in the North.

It is interesting that in the “Song of Deborah,” commemorating the victory over Sisera, Dan is chided for his distancing himself from the perils of the emerging nation:

Gilead abode beyond Jordan: and why did Dan remain in ships? Asher continued on the sea shore, and abode in his breaches.

Judges 5:17

Dan’s descendants apparently became skilled sailors and migrated north and westward to seek their own futures. It is remarkable that Moses had previously anticipated this in his prophetic summary:

And of Dan he said, Dan is a lion’s whelp: he shall leap from Bashan.

Deuteronomy 33:22

How could he “leap from Bashan” (the Golan Heights) if he had been officially allocated the area west of Jerusalem? This prophecy by Moses anticipated his relocating to the North!
The Bee Identity

When the tomb of one of the earliest Merovingian kings was unearthed, a treasure including 300 tiny gold bees was discovered. These bees are regarded as a symbol of the Tribe of Dan, linked with Samson’s riddle.11

When Napoleon was crowned, he insisted that his coronation cloak included the 300 bees embroidered into it, apparently evidencing his desiring an identity with the Merovingians and the Tribe of Dan. When he married Marie Louise Habsburg, he insisted that these same bees be embroidered into her wedding gown.

The Merovingian legends – and the Magdalene heresy – are taken seriously by many of the royal families in Europe and among some of the powerful activists behind the European Union today.

(It is also interesting that the Mormon Church accepts the Magdalene heresy and that the state symbol of Utah is the bee.)

The Eagle Identity

It is also worth noting that the ensign of Israel’s enemies always seems to be that of an eagle: Herod, the Romans, the Germans, the Czars, et al. (It is interesting that even Sparta and Troy may have links with the Tribe of Dan!)

It disturbs some to note that the symbol of the United States is also, of course, the eagle. The apparent Masonic symbolism on the Great Seal of the United States also disturbs many (look at your dollar bill and consult these images: 1,2,3,4):

The 32 feathers of the right wing are said to represent the 32 degrees of the Freemasonry. The 33 feathers on the left wing include the honorary 33rd degree of the Scottish Rite. The nine tail feathers are said to highlight the Council of Nine when the Illuminati merged with the Freemasons on May 1, 1776.

The ostensible occultic significance seems even more pronounced on the reverse side: the All Seeing Eye (the “Open Eye” of Egypt and the “Mind’s Eye” of the Gnostics) and the Latin phrases “Annuit Coeptis” (announcing the birth of) “Novus Ordo Seclorum” (New World Order).

The Age  of Aquarius  2160AD – 4230AD  shall be the period when the Ark of the Covenant would be restored in the form of computers, emf generators, atom smashers, wormhole transport facilities and ultimately smart device like signet that serves as individual data storage , biometrics , and radiates the Spirit of God handled by Humanos Luminus or Illuminated Human.
Present day craftsmen are programmers, scientists, physicists, alien like engineers who understand the dimensional  law of the universe and perfecting the reality of  the Godlike particle.
 The Prophecy of Prophet Haggai  ( Present Days before Year 2160 AD), the Building of the Third Temple
  From the  fourth chapter of Exodus:”And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe in the two former signs, thou shalt take of the water of the river and pour it upon the dry land; and the water shall become blood upon the dry land.”  This is an allegory of the scarlet (blood) color of the banner, the transformation of the old earth by wars, man made calamities, weather manipulations before the realization of the New Temple or the New Earth.
  1. All Nations Will be Shaken
  2. The Heavens and Earth Will be Shaken
  3. The Past and Present Building of the Temple
  4. The Instruction to Build the Temple

1. All Nations Will Be Shaken

“For this says the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, says the Lord of hosts. The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says the Lord of hosts. The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, says the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, says the Lord of hosts” (Hag.2:6-9 KJV).
It is clear from the scriptures that there has never been a time in history when God has shaken the heavens, the earth, and all the nations. But, this is what he says he will do just before Jesus returns as King of kings at the end of this age. See also Heb.12:26.
2. The Heavens and Earth Will Be Shaken
“Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth; And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother. In that day, says the Lord of hosts, will I take you, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, says the Lord, and will make you as a signet: for I have chosen you, says the Lord of hosts” (Hag. 2:21-23 KJV).
Clearly, this is an end of the age prophecy. Here, we see that God shakes the heavens and the earth, overthrowing the kingdoms (nations) of the world. “In that day,” is a reference to the end of the age (Isa.2:17-21; Zeph.1:7-10, 12-16; Joel 3:9-18; Zech.14:1-8,13,20). And as we will see, it is also very clear that God gives the prophetic end-time Zerubbabel great power and authority to represent him and proclaim his good news message to the world.
3. Past and Present Building of the Temple
“And now, I ask you to consider from this day and forward, from the time before a stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of the Lord” (Hag.2:15 Para.).
“Consider now from this day and forward, from the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lord’s temple was laid, consider it”(Hag.2:18 Para.).
Both of these references about laying the foundation and construction of the temple refer to a past and a future fulfillment.

Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
Yeah, they were all yellow.

I came along,
I wrote a song for you,
And all the things you do,
And it was called “Yellow”.

So then I took my turn,
Oh what a thing to have done,
And it was all yellow.

Your skin,
Oh yeah your skin and bones,
Turn into something beautiful,
Do you know,
You know I love you so,
You know I love you so.

Ang Mga Aral ni Haring Saturno

“Alam kong wala kang kasalanan. Huwag mo pagtakpan ang brod mo. Nakisama ka lamang. Nagpauto ka lang.” ang sigaw ni Senador sa  senate inquiry na napanood ko sa telebisyon.  Tungkol ito sa panunuhol sa dalawang Assistant Commisioners ng Immigration.

May halong awa at paninikip ng dibdib ang aking nararamdaman habang pinapanood ang ginagawang pagtatanong sa opisyal sapagkat matagal ko rin naman siyang kakilala at kasama sa paglalakbay patungong silangan para marating at makita ang liwanag. Isa siyang mabuting tao, mapagmahal sa pamilya, sa mga kaibigan, at maipagmamalaki ng samahan dahil sa angking talino at pinag-aralan. Mahigit na limang taon na rin ang nakaraan ng matanaw niya ang liwanag.

Dangan nga lamang at hindi ko siya nakikita nitong mga nagdaang mga buwan , marahil  abala sa trabaho sa bagong posisyon sa gobyerno , pero sa aking palagay  kung may pagkakataon ay bigla na lamang susulpot at makikipag kumustahan sa mga kapatid.

Pagkaraan ng ilang buwan ay nagulat na lamang kami dahil nasasangkot sa anila ay pangingikil o corruption.  “Bakit ganon ang nangyari? Bakit hindi nagtuloy-tuloy ang kanyang swerte? Bakit biglang nagbago ang nakalaang magandang hinaharap na buhay?  Anong kapalaran ang nakatadhana sa promising young man na bago pa lamang nagkakaroon ng magandang kinabukasan.  Napaka misteryoso ang mundo  na ito.  Hindi malaman ang tamang daan na tatahakin.

Planet Saturn Aspect

Bigla kong naisip na baka may epekto ang mga bituin at planeta sa taon ng kanyang kapanganakan  kaya mayroong pinagdadaanan ang buhay niya sa kasalukuyan – lalo na ang epekto ng paglalakbay ng planetang Saturn na apektado ang oras, araw, buwan at taon ng isang tao . Matindi ang galaw ni Haring Saturno o Kronos – mabigat ang mga disiplina na pinapagawa sa buhay para matutuhan ang mga aral nito lalo na kapag ito na nakatumbok o nakatapat sa posisyon ng  Araw.

Ayon sa Astrolohiya, hindi madali ang aspeto ng Saturn sa buhay ng tao. Siya ang nagtuturo ng seryosong pagtratrabaho, disiplina at responsibilidad.  Saturn ang nagkokontrol ng oras, ng mga limitasyon kung paano natin magagawa ng tama ang mga gawain. Tinuturuan nya ang tamang daan ng isang tao ayon sa kabutihan at ikakabuti ng kanyang kaluluwa. Parang isang ama, dinidisplina niya ang kanyang mga anak ng tamang kaisipan sa matuwid at tamang kautusan. Walang nakakaligtas sa mga turo ni Haring Saturno. Lahat tayo ay dadaan sa disiplina kapag dumating ang panahon na nakatapat ito sa araw ng kapanganakan na tumatagal ng 2 hanggang 3 taon.  Nagkaka iba nga lamang ang mga aral na ituturo sa mga nilalang sa mga panahon na ito.  Umiikot ang planetang ito sa loob ng 29-30 taon sa araw. Mararanasan ito ng bawat nilalang ng dalawa o tatlong beses kung mahaba ang buhay.

Transit Saturn Opposition natal Sun in Taurus

Tama ang hinala ko. Matapos kong malaman ang date of birth, nakonpirma ko na ipinganak sya sa buwan ng Taurus, first week of May. Ang aral na gustong ipaabot ni Saturn ay ngayon nararamdaman at natutupad. Sa panahon ng opposition, ayon sa mga Astrologers, makakaramdam ng depression ang isang nilalang sapagkat ito ang pinakamababang emosyon ng isang tao, pakiramdam na walang direksyon, ang paghihirap sa mga material na bagay, pakiramdam na napakabigat ang mabuhay, pakikipag-away, hiwalayan ng mag-asawa, pagiging laging may sakit  na kung minsan ay tuluyan ng humihiwalay para maging espirito. Sa mga pagkakataon  na ito,  ay maitatanong mo sa iyong sarili kung bakit nangyayari ito, lahat ng gawin ay mali at may mga balakid. Malalaman mo rin sa mga panahon na ito

Ang dapat gawin ay maging matatag lamang at umasa na may darating na magandang yugto ang buhay. Huwag kontrahin ang aral na ipinahihiwatig bagkus ay maging positibo ang pagsalarawan sa kinabukasan. Maging totoo at sundan lamang ng tapat ang nasa puso, sapagkat walang makakatulong kung di ang sarili lamang.  Tumawag sa Diyos at taimtim na hanapin ang tamang kasagutan sa problemang hinaharap.  At kapag nagawa ito ay siguradong hindi magkakamali o mapapahamak at darating ang nakalaang magandang bukas.

Sa aking analysis, malalagpasan niya ang crisis sa buhay na nangyayari  sa kasalukuyan.

My Personal Experience

Naranasan ko rin ang aral ni Haring Saturno. Taong 2001 noong ang planetang Saturn  ay nagkaroon ng epekto sa aking buhay. Ibang klaseng aral nga lamang, apektado ang 7th house of my birth chart o tungkol sa relationship ng marriage. Mabigat ang naging aral na marami ang nawala sa aking buhay – na katulad sa  Book of Job  ng Bibliya ay patuloy na pinagdadaanan.


(Isa sa mga bahay namin bago dumating ang mga pagsubok  ng tadhana)

Marami akong mga librong binasa at pinag-aralan para magkaroon ng kasagutan ang aking mga katanungan. Ginugol ko ang sarili sa pagbabasa ng mga libro ng positive mind books, astrology books, pumasok sa masonerya para maintindihan ang mga libro at sekreto nito, nagbasa din ng mga articles and write-ups ng mga like-mind writers, atbp..

Book of Job

Ang Aklat ni Job ay kasaysayan ng isang mabuting tao na dumanas ng katakut-takot na hirap. Namatay lahat ang kanyang anak, naubos ang kanyang kayamanan at nagkaroon pa siya ng nakakadiring sakit sa balat. Ipinaliwanag ng mga kaibigan ni Job ang kanyang paghihirap ayon sa kanilang kinagisnang paniniwala na ang laging ginagantimpalaan ng Diyos ay ang mabuti at pinaparusahan ang masama.

Dahil dito, lumilitaw na si Job ay nagkasala. Ngunit para kay Job, hindi siya dapat patawan ng gayong kabigat na parusa sapagkat buo ang paniniwala niya na siya ay matuwid. Hindi niya maunawaan kung bakit pahihintulutan ng Diyos na mangyari sa isang tulad niya ang gayong mga paghihirap. Kaya’t buong tapang niyang hinamon ang Diyos. Hindi nanghina ang pananampalataya ni Job. Gayunman, hangad niyang siya’y ituring na walang sala sa harap ng Diyos at mabawi ang kanyang karangalan bilang isang taong matuwid.

Hindi sinagot ng Diyos ang mga tanong ni Job, subalit tinugon niya ang pananampalataya nito sa pamamagitan ng isang matulaing paglalarawan ng kanyang kapangyarihan at karunungan.

Hinamon ng Diyos si Job ng kapamahalaan at kapangyarihan kung ihahambing sa Kanyang sarili. Tinanong ng Diyos ang mga sumusunod na serye ng mga katanungan upang ipakita ang kahinaan ni Job. Isa ito sa mga sagot,

Job 38:31-32

Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? Or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?

Sa ganoon, buong kababaang-loob na kinilala ni Job na ang Diyos ay marunong at dakila. Kaya’t pinagsisihan naman niya ang mabibigat na salitang nasabi niya.

Nakasaad sa bandang huli ay kung paano ibinalik si Job sa dati niyang kalagayan. Higit pa ang naging kayamanan niya kaysa dati. Pinagsabihan ng Diyos ang mga kaibigan ni Job sa kakulangan ng kanilang pagkaunawa sa pagdurusa ni Job. Tanging si Job lamang ang nakadama at nakaunawa na higit ang Diyos kaysa anumang uri ng paglalarawan sa kanya ng kinaugaliang relihiyon


Sa aking pag-iisa at sa aking pag-aaral ng mga impluwensya ng mga bituin at planeta, nakita ko kung bakit ako nabuhay sa mundo na ito,  ano ang ambisyon ko, saan ako pupunta, ano ang dapat gawin  para  matupad ang tamang daan sa hinahanap kong liwanag para maging ka isa ng Dios.

I Ching , the Book of Changes

12th December 2016  is the 64th year of my existence having born in year of the Chinese Water Dragon, month of black rat, the day of the black dragon, and the time of the black tiger. Dragon sign runs in the family. My mother was born 1928 under earth dragon sign while a grandson is a water dragon born in the year 2012.  Chinese tradition says,  to be born  a dragon ,  hold the beneficial power of heaven. Dragon is the only fictitious and deified animal that doesn’t exist in the world.  It is one of the four most revered animals of ancient China.

I refer to the old treatise of the ancient Chinese art of divination to predict the next move  or  at least have a glimpse of the next event in my life.  Many people are using this art as practical guide to decide important issues, to gain deeper insights and to widen their mental horizons about  life status and relationship.  This was the first Chinese metaphysical studies  I’ve learned thirty years ago together with the different branches of chinese astrology, Ming Shu, Zi Wei Dou Shu or the Purple Star Astrology  of the great bear constellation.

The I Ching uses a type of divination called cleromancy, which produces apparently random numbers. Four numbers, 6, 7, 8 & 9  are turned into a hexagram, which can then be looked up in the I Ching book, arranged in an order known as the King Wen sequence.

There are two methods to conduct the I Ching, the simple and easy method is the 3 coin method, while the yarrow stalk counting is a little bit complex  but have an accurate reading for beginner.


Table of Hexagram

The Coin Method

1. Hold the coins loosely in your hands, shake them briefly, and then toss them, all the while contemplating your query. The line you record is determined by assigning numerical values to heads and tails, then adding the total. Each heads is a 3, and each tails is a 2.  So, if you cast one heads and two tails (3+2+2), your starting line would be = 7

2. Collect the coins and toss another five times, recording the numerical values and the corresponding line each time, building your six-line hexagram from the bottom up.

The hexagram you’ve just created can be called your “present hexagram.” In order to produce a “future hexagram,” just change all the lines marked with an ‘x’ or an ‘o’ into their opposite. Any broken lines (Yin) marked with an ‘x’ flip into their opposite—a solid line (Yang)—and solid Yang lines marked with an ‘o’ turn into the broken Yin lines.

The Yarrow Stalk Method

1 – Take a single stalk from the bundle of 50 and lay it crossways in front of you. This symbolizes the Wu Chi – the unchanging ground of being.2 – Divide the remaining stalks into two piles. Set down the pile in your right hand.3 – Take one stalk from that right-hand pile and place it between the 4th and little fingers of your left hand (while still holding the left pile in your left hand)

4 – Count off the left pile by fours, setting the fours in a pile separate from the right-hand pile. When you have 4 or fewer left from the original left pile, tuck them between the 3rd and 4th fingers of your left hand.

5 – Now put the right-hand pile into your left hand and also count it off by fours until four or fewer sticks remain.

6 – If you counted correctly (ie. got fours not threes or fives each time you removed stalks) you now have a total either 5 or 9 sticks in your left hand. Think of 5 as a small number, equivalent to heads or yang in the coin method, and think of 9 as a large number, equivalent to tails or yin in the coin method.

7 – Lay these 5 or 9 stalks across the one you removed in step #1.

8 – Repeat steps 2 through 7 twice more. You will get either 4 or 8 stalks each time (not 5 or 9 as in the first time).Here 4 is small, yang or heads; 8 is big, yin or tails.

9 – Now look at the three piles that are lying across the single stalk. There are only four possibilities:

All are small (4 or 5 stalks) — This is a changing yang line — solid becomes broken
All are big (8 or 9 stalks) — This is a changing yin line — broken becomes solid
Two are small and one is big — This is an unchanging yin line — broken
Two are big and one is small — This is an unchanging yang line — solid

This is the first (bottom) of the six lines in your hexagram – remember it or write it down.

10 – Pick up all the stalks except the single one from step #1, then repeat steps 2 through 9 five more times.

Memento Mori

” Participate!”  ang sigaw ni Kumander habang ang lahat ay may hawak na kopa ng alak sa kanang kamay.  Kasunod niyon ay ang pag tungga nito at sabay sabay din na sumagot ng ‘participate’.

Napaka solemn ang ritwal ng Knights Templar na isinasalarawan ang communion and toasts during the initiation ceremony para maging knights na kailangang dumaan muna sa pagiging pilgrim, pilgrim warrior at pilgrim penitent . Ito ay ginagawa noong unang panahon sa Holy Land during the time of the Crusaders para pangalagaan ang mga Kristiyano na galing Europa na gustong  bumisita sa lugar na kinamatayan ni Hesukristo..

Matagal ko nang ginagawa sa conferral ng knights templar commandery – ang pagiging Warden. Mula sa Chamber of Reflection na kung saan ang simbolo ng ‘memento mori’ na nagsasalarawan na ang tao ay hindi maiiwasan ang kamatayan na  lahat tayo ay pupunta sa ganong kalagayan. Mula pa ito sa kapanahunan ng mga Romano para ipaalala na ang tao ay mula sa alikabok at sa alikabok din magbabalik.

Symbol of ‘ Memento Mori’ in the Chamber of Reflection

{ Memento mori means “remember that you must die” in the language of Latin. It serves to remind us of our own mortality, of our mistakes and failures, of the inevitable transformation of life into death..from wiki.}

Habang nakaluhod at taimtim na nanalangin ayon sa Gospel ni  St. Matthew , Chapter 5 Verse 13  – 17.

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.

15  “Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.

16 “In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them.

History of the Knights Templar

{“The Knights Templar were formed in the 12th century for the noble purpose of escorting Christians on their pilgrimages throughout the Holy Land during the Crusades. After inventing a system which is widely recognized as the forerunner of modern banking, the Templars grew exceedingly wealthy to the point that the powers that were, i.e., the crown and the tiara, sought to relieve them of their riches, and in 1307, a statement was issued by the debt-ridden King Philip IV of France declaring the Templars to be heretics. A great many of them were subsequently arrested, interrogated, tortured, and executed – their wealth then claimed by the greedy King Philip.” }..




{In the Knights Templar degree the initiate drinks 5 symbolic libations (or toasts) during his Templar Order initiation ceremony. The first 4 are taken out of a goblet; the libations being to the memory of (1) King Solomon “our ancient grand master” (2) Hiram King of Tyre; “our ancient grand master” (3) Hiram Abiff “the widows son, who lost his life in defence of his integrity”) (4) Simon of Cyrene, “the friend of our Saviour, who bore his cross, and fell a martyr to his faith.” (5) The fifth, and supreme, Knights Templar libation is made unto ‘the unknown’ and is performed in the vilest manner imaginable; an actual human skull-cap is placed in the hand of the candidate and he is caused to sup the content of such from this mystic cup. The candidate is told, “Pilgrim, the fifth libation is taken in a very solemn way. It is emblematical of the bitter cup of death, of which we must sooner or later, taste.”} ..from the web

Katatapos lang ng Knights Templar initiation ceremony, the 2nd  for this year,  last Saturday, Oct 8, 2016  sa SRT at tulad noong mga unang panahon na seremonya ay ginawa din nila ang nasimulan nang tradisyon – para sa pagpapala ng Diyos.

Congratulations mga Sir Knights!



As a Zelator Aspirant of the Second Grade, I was conducted at the center of the Temple and placed before the Ancient of Air which seated behind the Pillar in the cardinal point of the East ruled by the zodiac Libra and the Divinic Deity YHVH.

” Frater Zelator, what do you desire?”

” I desire for more  knowledge to study the constitution of the Universe and the structure of the world and seek to understand the relations that exist between the soul of men and his body, and investigate the sources and effects of the elemental forces”.

Then I was asked to kneel on both knees and invoke the blessing of God.

Afterwards, I was asked to make my vow and promise to study with zeal the mysteries of the art and sciences.

I also gave my solemn promise  to conceal the secret knowledge of this second grade   Theoricus.


Journey of the Soul

“The ancient Philosophers regarded the soul of man as having had its origin in Heaven. That was, Macrobius says, a settled opinion among them all; and they held it to be the only true wisdom, for the soul, while united with the body, to look ever toward its source, and strive to return to the place whence it came. Among the fixed stars it dwelt, until, seduced by the desire of animating a body, it descended to be imprisoned in matter.

Let us, in order to understand this old Thought, first follow the soul in its descent. The sphere or Heaven of the fixed stars was that Holy Region, and those Elysian Fields, that were the native domicile of souls, and the place to which they re-ascended, when they had recovered their primitive purity and simplicity. From that luminous region the soul set forth, when it journeyed toward the body; a destination which it did not reach until it had undergone three degradations, designated by the name of Deaths; and until it had passed through the several spheres and the elements.

All souls remained in possession of Heaven and of happiness, so long as they were wise enough to avoid the contagion of the body, and to keep themselves from any contact with matter. But those who, from that lofty abode, where they were lapped in eternal light, have looked longingly toward the body, and toward that which we here below call life, but which is to the soul a real death; and who have conceived for it a secret desire,–those souls, victims of their concupiscence, are attracted by degrees toward the inferior regions of the world, by the mere weight of thought and of that terrestrial desire.

The soul, perfectly incorporeal, does not at once invest itself with the gross envelope of the body, but little by little, by successive and insensible alterations, and in proportion as it removes further and further from the simple and perfect substance in which it dwelt at first. It first surrounds itself with a body composed of the substance of the stars; and afterward, as it descends through the several spheres, with ethereal matter more and more gross, thus by degrees descending to an earthly body; and its number of degradations or deaths being the same as that of the spheres which it traverses.

The Galaxy, Macrobius says, crosses the Zodiac in two opposite points, Cancer and Capricorn, the tropical points in the sun’s course, ordinarily called the Gates of the Sun.

Through these gates souls were supposed to descend to earth and re-ascend to Heaven. One, Macrobius says, in his dream of Scipio, was styled the Gate of Men; and the other, the Gate of the Gods. Cancer was the former, because souls descended by it to the earth; and Capricorn the latter, because by it they re-ascended to their seats of immortality, and became Gods. From the. Milky Way, according to Pythagoras, diverged the route to the dominions of Pluto. Until they left the Galaxy, they were not deemed to have commenced to descend toward the terrestrial bodies. From that they departed, and to that they returned. Until they reached the sign Cancer, they had not left it, and were still Gods. When they reached Leo, they commenced their apprenticeship for their future condition; and when they were at Aquarius, the sign opposite Leo, they were furthest removed from human life.

The soul, descending from the celestial limits, where the Zodiac and Galaxy unite, loses its spherical shape, the shape of all Divine Nature, and is lengthened into a cone, as a point is lengthened into a line; and then, an indivisible monad before, it divides itself and becomes a dead–that is, unity becomes division, disturbance, and conflict. Then it begins to experience the disorder which reigns in matter, to which it unites itself, becoming, as it were, intoxicated by draughts of grosser matter: of which inebriation the cup of Bakchos, between Cancer and Leo, is a symbol. It is for them the cup of forgetfulness. They assemble, says Plato, in the fields of oblivion, to drink there the water of the river Ameles, which causes men to forget everything.

This fiction is also found in Virgil. “If souls,” says Macrobius, “carried with them into the bodies they occupy all the knowledge which they had acquired of divine things, during their sojourn in the Heavens, men would not differ in opinion as to the Deity; but some of them forget more, and some less, of that which they had learned.”

Dragged down by the heaviness produced by this inebriating draught, the soul falls along the zodiac and the milky way to the lower spheres, and in its descent not only takes, in each sphere, a new envelope of the material composing the luminous bodies of the planets, but receives there the different faculties which it is to exercise while it inhabits the body.

In Saturn, it acquires the power of reasoning and intelligence, or what is termed the logical and contemplative faculty. From Jupiter it receives the power of action. Mars gives it valor, enterprise, and impetuosity. From the Sun it receives the senses and imagination, which produce sensation, perception, and thought. Venus inspires it with desires. Mercury gives it the faculty of expressing and enunciating what it thinks and feels. And, on entering the sphere of the Moon, it acquires the force of generation and growth. This lunary sphere, lowest and basest to divine bodies, is first and highest to terrestrial bodies. And the lunary body there assumed by the soul, while, as it were, the sediment of celestial matter, is also the first substance of animal matter.

The celestial bodies, Heaven, the Stars, and the other Divine elements, ever aspire to rise. The soul reaching the region which mortality inhabits, tends toward terrestrial bodies, and is deemed to die. Let no one, says Macrobius, be surprised that we so frequently speak of the death of this soul, which yet we call immortal. It is neither annulled nor destroyed by such death: but merely enfeebled for a time; and does not thereby forfeit its prerogative of immortality; for afterward, freed from the body, when it has been purified from the vice-stains contracted during that connection, it is re-established in all its privileges, and returns to the luminous abode of its immortality.

On its return, it restores to each sphere through which it ascends, the passions and earthly faculties received from them: to the Moon, the faculty of increase and diminution of the body; to Mercury, fraud, the architect of evils; to Venus, the seductive love of pleasure; to the Sun, the passion for greatness and empire; to Mars, audacity and temerity; to Jupiter, avarice; and to Saturn, falsehood and deceit: and at last, relieved of all, it enters naked and pure into the eighth sphere or highest Heaven.

All this agrees with the doctrine of Plato, that the soul cannot re-enter into Heaven, until the revolutions of the Universe shall have restored it to its primitive condition, and purified it from the effects of its contact with the four elements.” …From Morals and Dogma by Albert Pike.


Macrocosm and the Microcosm

Man is composed of Body, Soul and Spirit. The body is formed from the material world, the spirit from the Divine World of God, and Soul  from  Celestial World that dwells in the body.

To further explained the mystery, the ancient philosophers spoke of the Macrocosm consists of the created Universe, the Sun, Moon, Planets , Stars. while Microcosm was the soul of man influenced  by the heavenly bodies.


My Natal Chart

Astrologers compute the location of the stars and planets based on the time and day of birth in the form of a sphere indicating the constellations and position of the luminaries. The outer ring is composed of the 12 zodiac signs using the glyphs of Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. The inner wheel is the 12 zodiacal houses with planet symbols and  degrees; numbered 1 to 12 starting from the east or the left side generally called ascendant. The middle circle shows the relation of the planets with respect to each other. As regard to elements and modality, these are specifics necessary to analyze the alchemical elements of the body and soul- the macrocosm and microcosm.

There are corresponding meaning appertaining to the influences of the planets and fixed stars like star sirius, arcturus, etc which are quite long to detail the effects of its transit and progression.

By mere looking at the vitasphere,  and if someone understands the elements of nature, the location of these celestial bodies is a path to determine one’s character and the destiny related to it.

So mote it be.











                                                                       Rose and Cross Altar

On May 21, 2012. I was admitted to be elected membership in the society of Societas Rosicruciana In Civitatibus Foederatis ( SRICF), Pearl of the Orient College,  by the ceremony of the First Grade – Zelator, one of the four Grades of the First Order. This is the study  of the powers and properties of Numbers, and the philosophy of the Hebrew Kabalah, in which the relations between Numbers, Letters, Words and Things are defined. In this grade, we were introduced to the principles of Four Ancients – the elements, the Cross, the Pentagram, and the symbol LVX.


                                                                     Zelator Grade of the First Order

The ritual of the First Order ( First, Second, Third, Fourth Grades), and Second Order ( Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Grades) has strengthened my knowledge of the kabalistic ritual, the explanation of the Gematria, Numerology, the elemental process of nature ( earth, air, fire, water and spirit) mystery principles of Hermes Tresmigestus,  astrology ( the planetary influences ) , the enochian deities and archangelic divine names of the portal pillars  which all form part of my daily ceremonial magick ..invocation of the lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram.


Photo of the SRICF, Pearl of the Orient College members present during September 13, 2016 conferral of the First Order Ritual ( me -third from right , 3rd row)


With Right Worthy Frater Evaristo Leviste lX  and  Frater Pravin Sharma Vll during the conferral of the Second Order – 5th,6th and 7th Grade on Sept 13, 2016 ( earth sign Virgo).


The first order Grade Zelator is performed by the invocation of the power of the Elemental Earth situated on the North side of the temple and highlights the power of the Deity (AGLA on the north) and the Archangelic name in Hebrew Uriel , as well as the Enochian Divine name who governs the portal  pillar of the North. ( from the kabalistic cross ritual)


The zealot upon meditation should invoke the elemental forces governing the element of Earth like the earth itself, material world, possession, trees, soil, green, wealth, and also invokes those forces that are relevant to the sphere of Malkuth on the Tree of Life of the Kabbalah.

The Star of David's Four Elements Arithmetic

According to Kabbalah, the Universe is consisted of a combination of Four basic Elements: Fire, Air, Water and Earth.

The basic format for what follows is basically the same for the Theoricus, Practicus, and Philosophus grade rituals. For instance, in the Theoricus ritual we will do basically the same thing as the Zelator ritual, but instead invoke the elemental powers of Air instead of Earth. The Practicus ritual will involve the elemental powers of Water, and the Philosophus Ritual will involve the elemental powers of Fire. These are the elemental powers of the primary secrets of Nature.


The Portal Ritual is one in which we will be combining all of these various items from Zelator through Philosophus, but will be adding the fifth element of Spirit. It makes for a somewhat longer ritual, but the general idea in the Portal grade is to assemble, some would say re-assemble, the various elemental components of ourselves under the presidency of Spirit. Hence, the use of all of the previous components of the rituals from Zelator through Philosophus when performing the Portal ritual.


The Tree of Life


This is one of the basic kabalistic cross  rituals  invoking the name of the Deity as well as the four Enochian archangels guarding the 4 directions of the universe  –  a reference to understand the philosophy of the Hebrew Kabalah.

Astrology is the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural world.

There are 12 zodiac signs, and each sign has its own strengths and weaknesses, its own specific traits, desires and attitude towards life and people. By analyzing the projection of the position of planets, and the Sun and the Moon on the Ecliptic at the moment of birth. Astrology can give us a glimpse of a person’s basic characteristics, preferences, flaws and fears.

We made it simple for you to find out what your zodiac sign is, Its complete profile and it’s compatibility with other zodiac signs. By selecting your sign from the detailed zodiac sign dates list you will discover everything on the character of your Sun sign, it’s Horoscope, traits, profile, history, myth and love compatibility.

Each of the 12 horoscope signs belongs to one of the four elements – Air, Fire, Water and Earth. These elements represent an essential type of energy that acts in each of us. Astrology aims to help us focus these energies on the positive aspects and to gain a better understanding of our potential and our positive traits and deal with negative ones.

These four elements help describe the unique personality types associated with astrological signs. The four zodiac elements exhibit profound influence on basic character traits, emotions, behavior and thinking.

Societas Rosicruciana in Civitatibus Foederatis (SRICF) History

The Societas Rosicruciana in Civitatibus Foederatis is a Rosicrucian Society based in the United States. Its history begins with the formation of a Grand High Council on April 21, 1880. Its official consecration occurred on September 21, 1880, by three Colleges chartered by the Societas Rosicruciana In Scotia. High Grade senior Christian Freemasons in the United States in search of the Classical Rosicrucian Society for Masons in the United Kingdom became interested in organizing a similar body in the United States. They did so under Scotland’s authority (Societas Rosicruciana In Scotia) with the help of Most Worthy Charles Matier of the SRIS, as early as 1873. This effort died out two years later under the care of R.W. Frater George S. Blackie VIII and was then re-chartered by the SRIS later again in 1878. Dr. Jonathon J. French was a IX grade head of the Rosicrucian Society of the United States and opened the Matier Royal Provincial College with a charter from Lord Inverurie, Earl of Kintore and Supreme Magus of the SRIS. The college was named after Charles Fitzgerald Matier, the first Supreme Magus of SRIS who served in 1876. Harold Van Buren Voorhis insists that the Illinois College under Dr. French was never truly active, and it certainly was short-lived as Dr. French died an untimely death in 1879. Harold Voorhis also insisted that Frater Stodart Blackie’s early charter in New York had been nothing more than an unsubstantiated rumor. It has since been established as historical fact.[1]

In 1878, a group of senior U.S. Masons (Daniel Sutter, and Charles W. Parker) led by Charles E. Meyer (1839–1908) of Pennsylvania traveled to England and on July 25, 1878 were initiated into the grade of Zelator at Yorkshire College at Sheffield. They applied for a charter, but getting no response, turned to Scotland and received a charter from the college in Edinburgh in 1879. Scotland’s Society is actually the oldest as Walter Spencer is recorded as having been initiated into the SRIS by Anthony Oneil Haye in 1857, and there are documents in the SRIA archives that show that both Robert Wentworth Little and William J. Hughan were initiated in 1866 and 1867 by Anthony O’Neal Haye, Magus Max, Ros. Soc. Scot. With H.H.M. Bairnfathur signing as Secretary. The Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia was formed in England in 1866 by Robert Wentworth Little. The SRIA later felt the need to charter the current SRIS on October 24, 1873.[2]

A second charter was granted by the SRIS for a college in New York, and Fratres from Philadelphia and New York met in Philadelphia on April 21, 1880 and formed a High Council, then known as the SRRCA or the Societas Rosicrucianae Reipublica Confoedera America, was later changed to the Society of Rosicrucians in the USA by Most Worthy Frater Shryock in his capacity as Supreme Magus and then properly Latinized in 1934 by & at the suggestion of Dr. William Moseley Brown under the regime of Most Worthy Frater Hamilton. Brown composed the name (Societas Rosicruciana In Civitatibus Foederatis) himself and submitted it on January 17, 1934. The SRICF has operated continuously since its formation in the 19th Century, and is thriving today with an upsurge of young Masons being invited into its ranks with great enthusiasm and demonstrated scholarship.

Membership is by invitation only & predicated on regular mainstream Masonic affiliation as well as a profession of Christian faith. Membership was initially restricted to 36 members per College, but this was changed in 1908 by MW Thomas Shryock to 72 members per college. The See of the High Council is in Washington, D.C. The SRICF is in amity with the SRIS (Scotia) and the SRIA (Anglia) as well as the SRIC (Canada) and has helped the cause of Rosicruciana by empowering High Councils in their own sovereignty around the World. They are the SRIL in Lusitania (Portugal), SRIG in Gallia (France) and the SRIR (Romania).

The society issues an annual journal known as Ad Lucem composed of academic articles on things related to Rosicrucianism & esoteric streams of Christian Mysteries. There is also an annual report, The Rosicrucian Fama. Many of the Colleges have their own individual organs which are produced quarterly as well as annually. The governing body of the Society is known since 1911 (having dropped ‘Grand’ from its title) as The High Council which is composed of Fratres of the Third Order (IX and VIII), plus any College Celebrant not a member of the Third Order. The head of the Society is titled The Supreme Magus who was elected ad vitam up until circa 1991 when the constitution of the Society was changed to reflect that Supreme Magi are elected each triennium. Unlike the SRIA in England, a Chief Adept in the SRICF does not have regional powers, but rather is in charge of an individual College. Typically there is but one College per state, exceptions having been made for both New York and California due to their size and population.[3]
