* In March '95, the radio station Arutz Sheva announced that it had seen a
cable sent by the Israeli Embassy in Rome to the Foreign Ministry in
Jerusalem outlining the handover of the Old City of Jerusalem to the
Vatican. Two days later Haaretz published the cable on its front page.


The Rosicrucian


During the Middle Ages, the Roman Catholic Church was a political power
which was allied with the monarchies of Europe. In 1099 A.D., Pope Urben II
called Western Christendom to take up arms to liberate the Holy Land from
the Moslems. Later, in 1215, the Inquisition formally began during the reign
of Pope Innocent III, who issued the following statement: "That they shall
be seized for trial and penalties, who engage in the translation of the
sacred volumes, or who hold secret conventicles, or who assume the office of
preaching without the authority of their superiors; against whom process
shall be commenced, without any permission of appeal." Thomas M'Crie
records, "In the eleventh century, capital punishment, even in its most
dreadful form, that of burning alive, was extended to all who obstinately
adhered to opinions differing from the received faith." Henry Charles Lea
wrote: "The papal Inquisition . . . constituted a chain of tribunals
throughout Continental Europe perpetually manned by those who had no other
work to attend to…by constant interchange of documents and mutual
co-operation they covered Christendom with a network rendering escape almost
hopeless." (1)

Today, the Vatican maintains its own State Department and an influential
albeit non-voting presence in the United Nations. Reports such as the
following confirm current Vatican negotiations to regain control of the Holy
Land. Although it must now work through diplomatic channels, the second
Vatican conquest of the Holy Land will be heralded as another spiritual
mandate to reestablish the Holy Roman Empire.

The Vatican's Jerusalem Agenda by Israeli journalist, Barry Chamish, inquire
s: 'Did Shimon Peres make a deal with the Vatican? Consider the evidence:

* On Sept. 10, '93, just three days before the signing of the Declaration of
Principles in Washington, the Italian news magazine La Stampa reported that
part of the peace deal was an unwritten understanding that the Vatican would
receive political authority over the Old City of Jerusalem by the end of the
millenium. The newspaper reported that Shimon Peres had promised the pope to
hand over the holy sites of Jerusalem the previous May and that Arafat had
accepted the agreement.

* In March '94, the Israeli newsmagazine Shishi published an interview with
Mark Halter, a French intellectual and close friend of Shimon Peres. He said
he delivered a letter from Peres to the Pope the previous May, within which
Peres offered the Vatican hegemony over the Old City of Jerusalem. The
article detailed Peres's offer which essentially turned Jerusalem into an
international city overseen by the Holy See.

* In March '95, the radio station Arutz Sheva announced that it had seen a
cable sent by the Israeli Embassy in Rome to the Foreign Ministry in
Jerusalem outlining the handover of the Old City of Jerusalem to the
Vatican. Two days later Haaretz published the cable on its front page.

The Foreign Ministry explained that the cable was genuine but someone had
whited out the word "not." ie We will not transfer authority to the Vatican.
Incredibly, numerous Bnei Brak rabbis who had cancelled Passover meetings
with Peres over the issue of the cable accepted the explanation and
reinvited him to their homes.

The Foreign Ministry's Legal Affairs Spokesperson, Esther Samilag, publicly
complained about "various capitulations" to the Vatican. She was immediately
transferred to a post at the Israeli Embassy in Katmandu, Nepal.

MK Avraham Shapira announced in the Knesset that he had information that all
Vatican property in Jerusalem was to become tax exempt and that large tracts
of real estate on Mount Zion were given to the pope in perpetuity.

Jerusalem's late Deputy Mayor Shmuel Meir announced that he had received
"information that properties promised to the Vatican would be granted
extra-territorial status."

Beilin was forced to answer the accusations. He admitted, "Included in the
Vatican Agreement is the issue of papal properties in Israel that will be
resolved by a committee of experts that has already been formed." If so,
this committee has not since released any proof of its existence.

With all this in mind, how do we interpret the Vatican's current position on

The following report, circulated by MSANews may shed some light on that:

Vatican City, Jun 14, 1997 (VIS) - Archbishop Renato Martino, apostolic
nuncio and Holy See permanent observer to the United Nations, spoke June 9
on the status of Jerusalem at the New York headquarters of the Path to Peace
Foundation. The archbishop addressed members of this foundation as well as
U.S. members of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. He
began by briefly summarizing the "well-known and long-standing position of
the Holy See with regard to Jerusalem. He stated that Jerusalem "for us, of
course, along with the rest of the Holy Land, is that special link between
heaven and earth, that place where God walked and ultimately died among men.
And of course we recognize that others revere Jerusalem as the city of David
and the prophets and the city known to Mohammed .... It is a spiritual
treasure for all of humanity, and it is a city of two peoples, Arabs and
Jews, and of the three monotheistic religions, Christianity, Judaism and

Archbishop Martino added that "in recent years it has been increasingly
difficult to break through the political and media-imposed stranglehold on
the question of Jerusalem." he recounted Jerusalem's recent history,
recalling in particular the UN's General Assembly Resolution 181 of 1947
calling for Jerusalem to be considered a 'corpus separatum' under the
Trusteeship Council of the United Nations," a resolution which Israel
accepted. He pointed out that, in addressing the gridlock which has resulted
from the 1967 Israeli occupation of East Jerusalem, "the Holy See has
therefore advocated the granting to Jerusalem of an 'internationally
guaranteed special statute. That is the phrase used by Pope John Paul II in
his 1984 Apostolic Letter 'Redemption is Anno'."

This statute "asks that regardless of how the problem of sovereignty is
resolved and who is called to exercise it, there should be a supra-national
and international entity endowed with means adequate to insure the
preservation of the special characteristics of the City, its Holy Places,
the freedom to visit them, its religious and ethnic communities, a guarantee
of their essential liberties, and its city plan'."

The apostolic nuncio recalled the establishment of diplomatic relations
between the Holy See and Israel in 1993, when both signed the 'Fundamental
Agreement." He noted Article 4 of this agreement where "both the Holy See
and Israel affirm their continuing commitment to the 'Status quo' in the
Christian Holy Places."

He also spoke of the problems sparked by Israel's recent authorization of "a
project for the construction of settlements in occupied territory in East
Jerusalem" for which "there was wide-spread international condemnation."
This issue, he reminded those present, was brought before the UN Security
Council on March 7 and March 21 of this year, but without resolution
"because the sole country on the Security Council which opposed the
Resolution was the United States."

An Emergency Session of the General Assembly, "organized only nine other
times in the history of the United Nations" was held on April 24-25. The
Holy See delegation was contacted and asked for suggestions for a
Resolution, Archbishop Martino said. And he recounted the meetings, rough
drafts of proposals and negotiations which followed.

The approved texts of the eventual Resolution, he underlined, contained
"those points championed by the Holy See .... The General Assembly has here
called for 'internationally guaranteed provisions' - the equivalent of the
'internationally guaranteed special status' called for by Pope John Paul II.
This is particularly noteworthy because in this case, the Arab delegations
all voted for this Resolution and therefore for this provision."

"The Holy Places within Jerusalem," concluded Archbishop Martino, "are not
merely museum relics to be opened and closed by the dominant political
authority, no matter who that might be at any given moment. They are living
shrines precious to the hearts and faith of believers." DELSS/STATUS

Could that supra-national entity which will oversee the international city
of Jerusalem be the Vatican just as Peres promised? And how do we react to
Jerusalem Mayor Ehud Olmert's recent announcement that he will begin
negotiations with the Vatican, but "only over holy sites?" (2)


Concurrent with the Vatican's negotiations for authority over the Old City
of Jerusalem, others who would also establish a claim to the throne of David
have a covetous eye on the Holy Land. The Illuminati are the top echelon of
a vast network of organizations which make up a Secret Brotherhood covering
the globe. Within this network are found 6 major divisions: Banking & Money,
Secret Societies, Political, Intelligence, Religions, and Education. The
Secret Societies encompass the elite Prieuré de Sion, the Rosicrucians, the
Orders of Freemasonry, Skull & Bones, the Grand Orient Lodge, the Grand
Alpina Lodge, the Knights Templar, the Royal Order of the Garter. According
to one Rosicrucian book Holy Blood, Holy Grail, although the Prieuré de Sion
is the elite society that created the Knights Templar, the order from which
the other societies originated, this august body has maintained a low
profile from its inception and remains behind the scenes orchestrating
critical events in Western history.

"The Prieuré de Sion exists today and is still operative. It is influential
and plays a role in high-level international affairs as well as in the
domestic affairs of certain European countries... The avowed and declared
objective of the Prieuré de Sion is the restoration of the Merovingian
dynasty and bloodline - not only to the throne of France, but to the thrones
of other European nations as well." (3)

According to Holy Blood, Holy Grail, the infamous Protocols of the Elders of
Sion have been slanderously misrepresented and are, instead of an evil
conspiracy, a humanitarian proposal authored by the elite Prieuré de Sion.
In other words, the proposed new world order of the Prieuré will be a
benevolent "Masonic kingdom" led by a new king of "the holy seed of David."

In 1128, the Prieuré de Sion, under the auspices of the Roman Catholic
Church, created the Order of the Knights Templar to protect pilgrims to the
Holy Land after the first Crusade. The Prieuré also claim to be the
Guardians of the Holy Grail -- the sacred icon of the Merovingian bloodline.
The Holy Grail or Sangreal blasphemously represents the royal blood of Jesus
as having been preserved in this lineage, which is therefore heir to the
throne in the Temple at Jerusalem. According to another popular Grail book,
Bloodline of the Holy Grail by Laurence Gardiner, the Merovingian dynasty
derives its name from the 5th century King Merovee of France, a descendant
of the mystical Fisher-Kings, who was reportedly sired by:

". . . the mysterious sea beast -- the Bistea Neptunis -- as symbolically
defined in the Merovingian ancestry. The relevant sea-lord was King Pallas,
a god of old Arcadia…The immortal sea-lord was said to be 'ever-incarnate in
a dynasty of ancient kings' whose symbol was a fish - as was the traditional
symbol of Jesus. (4)

It seems that the Roman authorities did not recognize the Messianic claim of
the Merovingian lords but viewed the cult with a morbid suspicion of
ulterior motives: "During the latter years of the declining Empire, the
greatest of all threats to the Roman Church arose from a Desposynic royal
strain in Gaul. They were the Merovingian dynasty…" (5)

There is a pronounced anti-Catholic bias in all Merovingian literature which
presages the outcome of this campaign for the seat of authority in
Jerusalem. Revelation 17 does indicate that, during a brief interlude, there
will be a global merger of Church and State to establish a world government.
During this unholy alliance, the Harlot Church will ride the beast "drunken
with the blood of the saints and with the martyrs of Jesus." However, after
she "hath glorified herself, and lived wantonly," then suddenly -- "…the ten
horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and
shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her
with fire."

Authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail give a further clue as to why the Prieuré
de Sion would ally with the Vatican and later break faith. In 1314, Pope
Clement V and King Philippe IV of France martyred the last Grand Master of
the Knights Templar -- Jacques de Molay.

"As the smoke from the slow fire choked the life from his body, Jacques de
Molay is said to have issued an imprecation from the flames. According to
tradition he called his persecutors -- Pope Clement and King Philippe -- to
join him and account for themselves before the court of God within the year.
Within a month Pope Clement was dead…

"By the end of the year Philippe was dead as well. There is, of course, no
need to look for supernatural explanations. The Templars possessed great
expertise in the use of poisons and there were certainly enough people
about…to exact the appropriate vengeance. Nevertheless, the apparent
fulfillment of the grand master's curse lent credence to belief in the
orders occult powers. Nor did the curse end there…" (6)

Authors Biagent, Leigh and Lincoln propose that the French Revolution was
perpetrated by the successors of the Knights Templar -- the French
Freemasons -- to exact vengeance for the death of their Grand Master. The
insinuation is plain that the final and "appropriate vengeance" toward the
Vatican will be forthcoming when the Merovingian dynasty asserts its
authority over its world kingdom. They propose that, in place of the Vatican
papacy, a royal heir of Merovingian descent, "The King of the Jews will be
the real Pope" and "patriarch of an international church." The Prieuré de
Sion's objectives include:

"…a theocratic United States of Europe - a trans- or pan-European
confederation assembled into a modern empire and ruled by a dynasty
descended from Jesus. This dynasty would not only occupy a throne of
political or secular power, but quite conceivably the throne of Saint Peter
as well. Under that supreme authority there might then be an interlocking
network of kingdoms or principalities, connected by dynastic alliances and
intermarriage -- a kind of twentieth century feudal system, but without the
abuses usually associated with that term. And the actual process of
governing would presumably reside with the Prieuré de Sion -- which might
take the form of, say, a European Parliament endowed with executive and/or
legislative privileges...

"In a very real sense the time is right for the Prieuré to show its hand.
The political systems and ideologies that in the early years of our century
seemed to promise so much have virtually all displayed a degree of
bankruptcy. Communism, socialism, fascism, capitalism, Western-style
democracy have all, in one way or another, betrayed their promise, jaundiced
their adherents, and failed to fulfill the dreams they engendered… There is
a longing for a renewed sense of the sacred that amounts, in effect, to a
full-scale religious revival -- exemplified by the proliferation of sects
and cults, for example, and the swelling tide of fundamentalism in the
United States. There is also a desire for a true 'leader' -- not a führer,
but a species of wise and benign spiritual figure, a 'priest-king' in whom
mankind can safely repose its trust… There are many devout Christians who do
not hesitate to interpret the Apocalypse as nuclear holocaust. How might the
advent of Jesus' lineal descendant be interpreted? To a receptive audience,
it might be a kind of Second Coming." (7)


Who will be the heir-apparent of the purported royal bloodline of Jesus
deemed worthy to sit on the throne of the kingdoms of this world? Holy
Blood, Holy Grail provides the names of several noble families of
Merovingian heritage, which include the following:

"We cannot point to one man and assert that he is Jesus' lineal descendant.
There are at least a dozen families in Britain and Europe today -- with
numerous collateral branches - who are of Merovingian lineage. These include
the houses of Hapsburg-Lorraine (present titular dukes of Lorraine and kings
of Jerusalem), Plantard, Luxembourg, Montpezat, Montesquiou, and various
others. According to the 'Prieuré documents,' the Sinclair family in Britain
is also allied to the bloodline, as are various branches of the Stuarts..."

It is noteworthy that the late Princess Diana was a member of the Stuart
bloodline, fifth removed from Charles II (9) and the Stuarts claim a greater
nobility than the reigning House of Windsor, a bloodline that is not
mentioned in the Merovingian list of worthies. Moreover, the contribution of
the Stuart family is duly acclaimed, along with the glories of Freemasonry:

"During their stay in France the Stuarts had been deeply involved in the
dissemination of Freemasonry. Indeed, they are generally regarded as the
source of the particular form of Freemasonry known as Scottish Rite.
Scottish Rite Freemasonry introduced higher degrees than those offered by
other Masonic systems at the time. It promised initiation into greater and
more profound mysteries -- mysteries supposedly preserved and handed down in
Scotland. It established more direct connections between Freemasonry and the
various activities -- alchemy, Cabalism, and Hermetic thought, for
instance -- that were regarded as Rosicrucian…" (10)

In Bloodline of the Holy Grail, Sir Laurence Gardiner attempts to prove that
the House of Stuart still retains the legitimate right to the throne of
England, possessing a living descendant of Bonnie Prince Charlie, whom the
Jacobites sought to restore to the British Throne in 1727. However, The
Jacobite Heritage maintains that Gardiner's genealogies are undocumented and
cannot be supported by historical evidence.

It happens that the foreword to Bloodline of the Holy Grail is written by a
Prince Michael Stewart of Albany, who is the Head of the Royal House of
Stewart, which surname Sir Laurence maintains is "Stuart," albeit with a
different spelling. The Official Home Page of the Royal House of Stewart
provides extensive information about the aspiring Prince, who also holds the
position of Head of the European Council of Princes. The Jacobite Heritage
refutes Prince Michael's claim to fame:

"Prince Michael" claims to be "President of the European Council of Princes
(Le Conseil Europeen des Princes) - Un Organe Consultatif Constitutionel".
He says that this organisation was founded in 1946 (as the International
Council of Government) with Archduke Otto of Austria as its President until
1992 (when "Prince Michael" succeeded). He also says that the heads of all
the major European royal houses belong with the exception of the House of
Windsor. [The existence of this body before 1990 cannot be verified.
Archduke Otto of Austria has never been president of any such body, nor has
the head of any major European royal house ever been a member. The only
people who might be members are people who claim legitimate descent from
long extinct houses such as Hohenstaufen (ie. charlatans). "Prince Michael"
claims to have connections with many European royal houses; he is, however,
never seen at any of their celebrations marking baptisms, marriages,
birthdays, or funerals.]

Prince Michael is thoroughly debunked as merely another pretender to the
British throne on the Fantasy Royalty web site:

"The Royal House of Stuart became extinct in the male line with the death of
Henry (IX) Stuart, Duke of York, Cardinal of the Holy Roman Church and
Bishop of Frascati, in 1807. He had succeeded his elder brother, Charles
(III) Stuart, sometimes known as 'Bonnie Prince Charlie,' in 1788, on the
latter's death without legitimate issue (he left one illegitimate daughter,
Clementina, who also died without issue). Both were the sons of James (III),
Prince of Wales, only son of James II, King of England, Scotland, France and
Ireland, (illegally) deposed as King of England and Scotland on 10 Dec 1688,
and as King of Ireland six months later, who died in exile in 1701."

Compounding the royal intrigue was the "coincidental" release (one week
after Diana's death) of an expose of the Royal Family which holds present
title to the British throne, the House of Windsor. The Royals by Kitty
Kelley brazenly asserts that Queen Elizabeth II was conceived by artificial
insemination and that the Queen Mum is illegitimate. A Washington Post
review of this popular book stated:

"Among the more startling claims is that both Queen Elizabeth and her
sister, Princess Margaret, were conceived via 'manual fertilization' after
their sickly father, George VI, failed to impregnate their mother, now the
Queen Mum, in the more usual fashion. … Though the sisters were born in 1926
and 1930, respectively, decades before artificial insemination became a
widely used medical procedure, several prominent U.S. medical specialists
contacted by The Post say the story's not implausible. 'It might have been
quite possible,' says J. Benjamin Younger MD, executive director of the
American Society for Reproductive Medicine. 'But is it true?'" (11)

Although this sensational revelation is most likely not true, such may be
the requisite propaganda which will dethrone the already disgraced House of
Windsor. Dare we call it conspiracy? We know that Diana was required to give
up her crown when she divorced Charles. In his recent release, The Forgotten
Monarchy of Scotland, Prince Michael claims to be the "legal Pretender to
the throne of England" (12), by which we infer is meant that he would
receive it by default of Prince Charles. Should Prince Charles not accede to
the throne (and there have been rumors that he would decline because of so
many scandals), then Princes William and Henry may lose the right of
succession, Diana having also relinquished her crown.

Prince Michael makes the point that England does not have a constitution and
therefore the monarchy is little more than a despotic feudal system. (13) He
emphasizes, however, that Scotland has a constitution, in fact the very
Freemasonic model used by the Founding Fathers of the United States!
However, George Washington knew the importance of a monarchy with a
hereditary bloodline and even offered the American crown to Charles III

Although The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotland does not document these claims
concerning the founding of the American system of government, the
implication is clear that the ideal form of world government would be a
constitutional monarchy under a restored Stuart monarchy. Led by whom?
Probably not the dispossessed sons of Charles should he abdicate the British
throne. And given the sudden promotion in Christian media of Prince Charles
as the Antichrist, this eventuality seems a formidable prospect.

Another development in the unfolding drama is a recent report that Israel is
pursuing membership in the British Commonwealth.

"Israel is actively considering joining the British Commonwealth, following
an 'unofficial approach' to its ambassador in London from the
secretary-general of the 53-member organization.

"The approach was made earlier this month in a meeting between Ambassador
Moshe Raviv and the Commonwealth’s secretary-general, Chief Emeka Anyaoku.
The move is being seen as especially significant at a time when Israeli ties
with the European Union and other international bodies have been strained
over the stalled Middle East peace process. A spokesman for the Commonwealth
confirmed that a meeting had taken place between Chief Anyaoku and Mr Raviv,
but declined to provide further details.

"The approach came in the wake of a visit to London earlier this month by
Yasser Arafat, during which the Palestinian Authority chief asked
Commonwealth officials whether a future Palestinian state could have
associate membership of the organization. (14)

What human agency may be orchestrating the rise and fall of the kingdoms of
this world and leading them to fulfill Zechariah's prophesy that Israel will
become a burdensome stone for all people? (12:3) Holy Blood, Holy Grail and
Bloodline of the Holy Grail are obviously publications of the Prieuré of
Sion, the founders of the Knights Templar which preceded the Rosicrucians
and Freemasons. Volumes of Rosicrucian/Freemasonic books are now glutting
the market to the end of bringing forth the Rosicrucian dream of the new
world order governed by a "wise and benign spiritual figure, a priest-king"
of the pedigree of Jesus Christ. The authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail are,
however, prudent to assure the future serfs of their thoroughly modern
feudal system that the lineal descendant of Jesus -

"…would not be any more divine, any more intrinsically miraculous, than the
rest of us. This attitude would undoubtedly be shared by a great many people
today. We suspect it is shared by the Prieuré de Sion as well."

By inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the Apostle Paul foretold that a usurper
of the Temple throne would precede the "coming of our Lord Jesus Christ," at
which time many would believe a lie, even their own divinity:

"Let no man deceive you by any means for that day shall not come, except
there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of
perdition; who opposeth and exhalteth himself above all that is called God,
or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God,
shewing himself that he is God…

"And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with
the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his
coming: even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan, with all power
and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness
in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that
they might be saved.

"And for this cause God shall send them a strong delusion, that they should
believe a lie: that they might be damned who believed not the truth, but had
pleasure in unrighteousness." II Th 2:2-12


On 14 January 1998 the World Council of Churches reported the formation of
the European "Church and Society Commission." The stated purpose of this
commission was to help European churches "monitor and react to developments
in institutions such as the European Union and the Council of Europe, and to
deal with ethical questions facing European society."

Ethical questions will encompass: ". . . peace, justice and the integrity of
creation, reconciliation and relations between churches and governments . .
. democratisation, human rights and minorities, European security, and the
environment . . . (and) the specific responsibility of the churches in
member states of the European Union for EU policies." (15)

The January meeting took place in Strasbourg, the French city which houses
the headquarters of the Council of Europe, the European Court of Human
Rights, and the European Parliament. It is significant that opening this
session was Jacques Stewart, who described the meeting as "historic" and
"long awaited."

The Stewart family are ubiquitous in the movement toward a global government
and religion and, as we have seen, appear to be the Illuminati bloodline
spearheading the Merovingian conquest of the Throne of Jerusalem. According
to authors Biagent, et al, the Prieuré will soon to make its long awaited
debut as the legitimate head of a one world theocracy, placing on the Throne
of Jerusalem the physical heir of Jesus Christ. Notably, in 1992, Prince
Michael Stewart of Albany was elected head of the European Council of
Princes. Prince Michael is also acclaimed to be the 7th legitimate
descendant from the exiled Charles Edward Stuart.

On the web site of Bloodline Of The Holy Grail is found Sir Laurence
Gardiner's defense of the Stewart claim to the Thrones of Scotland and
England, Sir Laurence himself being no less than "Prior of the Celtic
Church's Sacred Kindred of St Columba, Chevalier Labhran de Saint Germain
and Presidential Attache to the European Council of Princes." Researcher of
Illuminati bloodlines, Fritz Springmeier believes the Stewarts to be the
13th Illuminati family from which the Antichrist will come. (16) The
following is a partial listing of Stewarts who hold influential and powerful
positions in the global network moving the world toward political and
religious unity.

Prince Michael Stewart of Albany

Head of the European Council of Princes

"In June 1992, HRH Prince Michael James Alexander Stewart, 7th Count of
Albany (Scotland) was elected President of the European Council of
Princes -- a constitutional advisory body within the European Union. In this
regard, he succeeded the Imperial and Royal House of Habsburg Austria, who
had retained the office from 1946. The new appointment held significant
political implications for Scotland because, in unanimously electing Michael
of Albany, some 32 sovereign houses openly proclaimed the continuing de jure
Scots monarchy to an international audience – a royal dynasty which,
according to British academic historians, had long been extinct." (17)

Jacques Stewart

President of the European Ecumenical
Commission on Church and Society

The EECCS has offices in Strasbourg and in Brussels, where the main EU
headquarters are located. Jacques Stewart, who is also former president of
the Protestant Federation of France, opened the first meeting of the Church
and Society Commission of the Conference of European Churches (CEC) which
took place on 9 and 10 January in Strasbourg. Strasbourg is the French city
which houses the headquarters of the Council of Europe, the European Court
of Human Rights, and in which the European Parliament holds regular plenary
sessions. (18)

Gary Stewart

Former Imperator of the Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis

AMORC is the world's largest Rosicrucian organization. Presently, Gary
Stewart is Imperator of the Confraternity of the Rose Cross, Grand Sovereign
Master of the British Martinist Order and Knight Commander of the Order of
the Militia Crucifera Evangelica. The OMCE…has a strong Templarist
influence. Imperator Stewart's authority to lead the world's Rosicrucians
can be traced back through Ralph M. Lewis and Spencer Lewis in the American
revival of the R+C tradition. (19)

Leland Stewart

Founder of Unity & Diversity Council

Constance Cumbey's "Special Report on Pat Robertson" states:

"Leland Stewart displayed large charts of what he called 'The Unity &
Diversity Framework.' He explained the coming new world government -- a one
world government comprised of bio-regions and some left over nation state
boundary regions. He spoke of a forthcoming New World Religion...He praised
Pope John Paul II for his meeting with the Dalai Lama and African Animist
leaders...Leland Stewart's organization, Unity & Diversity Council,
sponsored Benjamin Creme in 1982 in their annual meeting and urged the
members of their affiliate organizations to hear him."

the first Declaration of World Thanksgiving, which was affirmed by 11 other
distinguished international religious leaders, including the Pope and Dalai

Please note the New Age redefinition of Thanksgiving:

"In 1988, at… (the) Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, the
pastor, Rev. James Parks Morton, conducted a Thanksgiving day service in
which 4,000 children and adults joined with American Indians, tribal
leaders, medicine men, witches, nature worshippers...in a 'circle dance' of
religious friendship and unity. Morton said the purpose of the dance was to
'redefine' Thanksgiving. Part of the impetus for the ceremony was to create
'a heightened consciousness of the necessity of different religions working
together to save our planet." (22)

A Revival leader associated with the United Kingdom/Toronto Blessing wrote a
testimony which portrays Jesus as a voyeur. The blasphemous testimony of
Teresa Seputis was posted on her web page, now titled GodSpeak
International, but removed within days of posting our expose. A portion of
this testimony is reprinted in the Revival Connection. Teresa also
ministered in 1994 with John and Carol Arnott in San Francisco (28) and in
1996 and 1997 with Randy Clark and the St. Louis Vineyard Christian
Fellowship which sponsored Catch The Fire conferences in Moscow. (29)

Of interest to us was the fact that Teresa Seputis' testimony was also
posted in an e-mail conference on the Scottish Stewart Clan Internet Home
which focuses on the Toronto Revival that has been exported around the
world. Within hours after the Watch Unto Prayer expose was posted on
November 6, 1997, the Scottish Stewart Clan Internet Home blocked access to
their discussion groups for all except those having a secret password.
Plainly the Stewart Clan does not want the Rosicrucian UK/Toronto Revival
connection to be known.

Among the 67 CyberChurch discussion groups which are active on the Scottish
Stewart Clan Internet Home may be found a broad spectrum of ministries that
profess to be Christian: Pentecostals, Revival, Promise-Keeping Men,
Vineyard Churches, Church of God, Assembly of God, Baptist, Methodist,
Lutheran, Seventh Day Adventist, Episcopal, Catholic, Mennonite, Nazarine,
Prolife, Prayer Network, ChristNet-UK, ChristNet-Scotland, CellChurch,
Worship and Unity.

The Scottish Stewart Clan Internet Home is very esoteric for a Christian web
site, with emphasis on the genealogies of various Scottish clans. New Age
books such as Bloodline of the Holy Grail also emphasize genealogies,
especially the Merovingian families, which include the Stewarts. On the
Stewart Clan Internet Home is found the Crest of the Phoenix, which is the
occult symbol of resurrection. The Stewart web site also features a
"Christian" version of Dungeons and Dragons titled "Dragon Raid."

Of special interest is a page about the Stone of Destiny, which has recently
been moved from England to Scotland. According to the Stewart Clan
interpretation of Bible prophecy, this Stone (formerly Jacob's Pillar) upon
which kings of Scotland and England were traditionally crowned, will be used
in the coronation of Christ as the King of Israel:

"This Stone is believed to be the original Pillar that Jacob dedicated to
God after his all-night wrestling vigil with an angel. From all references,
this stone represents the House of David that went into oblivion after the
wicked king Zedekiah was dethroned by our Father and later blinded then
killed along with his sons. Jacob's Pillar (The Stone of Destiny) was
believed to have been subsequently carried by Jeremiah - along with
Zedekiah's two daughters - to Ireland. Later, it went to Scotland, then
England. Most scholars, along with this writer, see these three moves
associated with Ezekiel 21:27: 'I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and
it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it

"…It will not be used ever again in the crowning of an earthly king because
it has been announced that it will go on permanent display in Edinburg,
Scotland. Therefore, this move obviously ended the Stone's role in the
crowning of kings, ending with King George VI in 1936 ... the last king
crowned over the Stone. That being the case, Messiah, according to Ezekiel,
will be the next King over the House of David . . . so, the third 'overturn'
is yet in effect. In light of these facts, as stated last month, this move
(after some 700 years) would seem to be significant as to just how close the
Lord's return could be. In other words, from Zedekiah forward, Israel, as a
nation, would have no king until Messiah comes (Gen. 49:10) ...and true to
prophecy, that has been the case. This means that the scattered and divided
kingdom of Israel must be restored and Christ installed as her King...'the
most holy' Dan. 9:24" (30)

Although there is disagreement as to which stone is the true Stone of
Destiny, and whether it was Jacob's pillar or pillow, the preceding fable is
nearly identical to the account presented in Bloodline of the Holy Grail by
Laurence Gardiner:

"Not only were the Grail Knights and Templars appointed Guardians of the
Stewart Sangreal [Holy Grail] in Scotland, they also became protectors of
the Stone of Destiny (the Stone of Scone). This most sacred of Scots
treasures had been brought to Scotland from Ireland by Fergus Mor mac Erc,
the first King of Dalriada, in the 5th century, having originally been
carried to Ireland from Judah in about 586 BC. The venerated holy relic was
said to be the Stone of the Covenant, known as 'Jacob's Pillow' (Gen.
28:18-22), on which Jacob laid his head and saw the ladder reaching up to
Heaven at Beth-el. In a dream God promised Jacob that his seed would
generate the line of kingship to follow - the line which in due course
became the Davidic succession.

"When the Jews were persecuted by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, Mattaniah, the
son of King Josiah (and a direct descendant of David), was installed in
Judah. Known as King Zedekiah, he acceded to the throne of Jerusalem in 598
BC. Twelve years later Jerusalem fell to Nebuchadnezzar, whereupon Zedekiah
was taken to Babylon and blinded (Jer. 39:6-7, 52:10-11). His sons were
murdered, but his daughter Tamar was removed to Ireland (via Egypt and
Spain) by the prophet Jeremiah. He also brought the anointed Stone of the
Covenant, which became known as Lia Fail (Stone of Destiny). In Latin it was
the Saxum Fatale.

"Princess Tamar (Teamhair) gave her name to Tara, the seat of the High Kings
of Ireland, and she married Ard Ri (High King) Eochaid, ancestor of Ugaine
Mar (Ugaine the Great). Subsequently, over a millenium, Eochaid's successors
were crowned in the presence of the sacred Stone. The Irish heritage then
progressed to Scotland, where the relic of Judah became synonymous with the
Kings of Dalriada. King Kenneth (MacAlpin (844-859) later moved the Stone to
Scone Abbey when he united the Scots and the Picts. By the time of William
the Lion (d. 1214), the Stone of Destiny bore witness to nearly a hundred
coronations in sovereign descent from King Zedekiah.

"On declaring himself Overlord of Scotland in 1296, Edward I of England
stole what he thought was the Stone of Destiny. What he actually got was a
piece of sandstone from a monastery doorway, which has since rested beneath
the Coronation Throne at Westminster Abbey. This piece of rubble is 26
inches long by 11 inches deep (c. 66x 28 cm) and weighs about 335 lbs (c.
152 kg). Royal seals of the early Scots kings depict a much larger
installation rock, but this rock was not the sacred Stone of Destiny -- no
more than is the medieval masonry prize of King Edward. The real Stone of
Destiny is said to be smaller, more naturally rounded, and is of inscribed
black basalt, not of hand-cut sandstone. It was hidden by the Cistercian
Abbot of Scone in 1296, and it has remained hidden ever since. The Columbian
tradition tells us that, on secreting the Stone, the Abbot prophesied that
one day 'The Michael' would return to his inheritance." (31)

The preceding fabrications of the origin of the Stone of Destiny present the
false doctrine of British-Israelism, which propagates a variety of
fictitious narratives intended to prove that the promises given to Israel in
Scripture will be fulfilled in Britain, America, and other Anglo-Saxon
countries. One version identifies the Anglo-Saxon race with the ten lost
tribes of Israel which supposedly migrated to the British Isles following
the Assyrian Captivity. According to other accounts which are presented in
Holy Blood, Holy Grail and Bloodline of the Holy Grail, Jesus married Mary
Magdalene and fathered children. After the crucifixion, Joseph of Arimethea
took Mary and the children of Jesus to Europe. Needless to say, Scripture
supports neither of these nor any other versions of the British-Israel

Among the Grail romances, the most famous is Parzival, composed by Wolfram
von Eschenbach. In this mystical poem, the Grail is identified as a
Philosopher's Stone upon which appear inscribed the names of the heirs of
the throne of Jesus, typified by the phoenix, which will rise again and
restore the inheritance of the Merovingian bloodline:

"You say you yearn for the Grail. You foolish man, I am grieved to hear
that. For no man can ever win the Grail unless he is known in heaven and
called by name to the Grail. This I must tell you about the Grail, for I
know it to be so and have seen it for myself…By the power of that Stone the
phoenix burns to ashes, but the ashes give him life again. Thus does the
phoenix moult and change its plumage, which afterward is bright and shining
and as lovely as before…

"Such power does the Stone give a man that flesh and bones are at once made
young again. The Stone is also called the Grail. This very day there comes
to it a message wherein lies its greatest power. Today is Good Friday, and
they await there a Dove, winging down from heaven. It brings a small white
wafer, and leaves it upon the Stone…

"Hear now how those who are called to the Grail are made known. On the
Stone, round the edge, appear letters inscribed, giving the name and the
lineage of each one, maid or boy, who is to make the blessed journey. No one
needs to rub out the inscription, for once he has read the name, it fades
before his eyes." (32)

To the end of establishing the Scottish Stewart claim, the Stone of Scone
page presents another aberrant interpretation of Scripture with which the
credentials of the false messiah will seek validation. Ezekiel 37:19-22 is
wrested from its proper Hebrew context and given a subtle British-Israel
rendering. Note in the following excerpt that the Houses of Judah and Israel
are identified as "people" rather than "Jews" exclusively. Thus, the
Merovingian Messiah will unite the world, rather than the Jews, having first
vanquished another false Christ, perchance the Pontiff of the Harlot Church.

"Verse 19: "Say unto them (Israel), Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will
take the stick of Joseph (House of Joseph), which is in the hand of Ephraim,
and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with
the stick of Judah (House of Judah), and make them one stick (one nation),
and they shall be one in *mine hand*." These sticks are literal wooden
sticks which were used to represent the divided Kingdom of Israel which had
become the House of Judah and the House of Israel. (See 1 Kings 11) The two
sticks mentioned in Ezekiel are not books or scrolls -- they are people --
as the Scriptures will document. The sticks simply represent people. Note
verses 16 & 17: 'Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write
upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take
another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for
all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another into
one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.'

"The word 'stick' is literal; that is, it means a stick of wood -- not a
book or scroll. (See Strong's No. H6086) Therefore, in writing the name of
Judah on one stick and the name of Joseph on the other, is simply showing
the separation or division of God's People, Israel, and that by a miracle,
He will rejoin them into one people. Our Father says that when asked about
the meaning of this joining, tell them as follows: Verse 20: 'Thus saith the
Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick (the House or people) of Joseph,
which is in the hand of Ephraim (whose leader was Ephraim -- at that time),
and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with
the stick of Judah (join them with the House or people of Judah -- the
remnant), and make them one stick (one people), and they shall be one (a
single nation, as in the beginning) in mine hand.' Verse 22 con-firms that
these two sticks represent people who have been scattered to the four
winds -- but will be reunited when Christ returns; read carefully:

"'And I will make them *one nation* (one stick, one people) in the land upon
the mountains of Israel; and one king (Christ) shall be king to them *all*
(Shiloh; Whose right the Stone of Destiny represents): and they shall be no
more two nations (two sticks), neither shall they be divided into two
kingdoms any more at all:' Can Christ be a King over anything except people?
These two sticks being joined are specifically used to remind the
descendants of Israel, even today, that they will yet be reunited into one
nation -- a single people -- in the original land given to Abraham!." (33)
