CROSS MY HEART AND HOPE TO DIE"
~ THE MYSTERIOUS "X" FACTOR
An X is an ancient symbol for change
or transformation.. .long associated in medieval and renaissance art with the
coming of the Messiah who shall make all things new. ~ Jim Tresner, 33° Scottish Rite Journal
The Illuminist/Masonic meaning of the X is simply this: It is the sign of
Osiris, the great (Egyptian) sun God. ~ Texe Marrs, Dark Majesty
The sign, or letter X, has a long history of use in
the Ancient Mystery Religions, in apostate Judaism, in Freemasonry, and in the
occult. The Illuminati elite use it to this day to symbolize key phenomena and
mark significant events.
The mysterious letter X seems to take on a wide and varied life of its
own, with or without the secret aid of the elite sponsorship. Mark Euston, of the Christian
Intelligence Resource Network, in a letter to the author, detailed some of the
many examples of the use of the letter X. For example, the well-known science
fiction TV show, The X Files.
Pornographic movies are rated X and the more
sensational movies in the raw flesh category are touted as XXX, or triple X.
Euston noted that we have the Microsoft Corporation creation of X-box, the
movie X-Men, off-brand products are called "Brand X," and of course,
there is the U.S. terrorist prison camp, Camp X-Ray at Guantanamo, Cuba.
Today's youth have been called Generation X, and a lot of folks are concerned
about a planet, or star, reported to be speeding toward us called Planet X that
has occult significance.
Euston asks about all the usages of X,
"Are these just strange
coincidences, some type of mind control trigger, or a subliminal conditioning
of some kind?"
Another friend, Kathy Creek, wrote and asked if I had noticed the many new
drugs being released by pharmaceutical firms with either a V, Z, or an X in
their name? She mentioned an ad she had seen for Clarinex, an allergy drug that
had a little sun sign used to dot the letter "i" in Clarinex.
John Myers, another astute
friend interested in such topics, sent me a lengthy letter and included an
excerpt from author Edward Waite's reference book, A New Encyclopedia of
Freemasonry. Myers wryly observed that, "generally, things that are bad
are X-rated." He mentioned, too, the interesting use of the letter X in
the Rx of drug stores; the use of the four-letter, abbreviated word Xmas to
replace Christmas, and the fact that, in Black's Law Dictionary, it says
that the sign or mark of X is sometimes made as a substitute for a man's
signature on legal documents.
And the continued use of the mysterious X abounds. Children at play can be
heard to say, "Cross my heart and hope to die." In the Greek
alphabet, the letter Chi is denoted with the symbol X, and given the numerical
designation of 600. The numerologists say that triple X, then, would yield the
Black Muslim leaders obviously see X as a substitute name of great spiritual
significance. Two well-known Black Muslim leaders have been named Malcolm X and
Louis X, names they chose for themselves. The latter, who was born Louis Eugene
Wolcott in 1933 in New York City, changed his name to Louis X after his
conversion to Islam by Black Muslim leader Elijah Muhammed. Today, he is known
as Louis Farrakhan. It is well-known that Farrakhan is a 33° Prince Hall Mason.
X as Symbol for the Sun God
According to Dr. C.J. Koster,
head of the Institute for Scripture Research in South Africa, X was the
emblem of the Chaldean (Babylonian) sky God. Koster says that X was an
ancient symbol of the sun deity and that the letter carried with it sexual
connotations. In the old Semitic languages, X represented the cross.1
Freemasonry early-on latched onto this letter exactly because of its paranormal
significance as a sign of Lucifer, the solar (sun) God. The Masonic
Lodge also uses X because of its sexual meanings and its Babylonian origins.
Writing in the Scottish Rite Journal, the official journal of the Mother
Supreme Council, 33°, Jim Tresner
discussed the use of X in the ritual ceremony for the 17°, Knight of the East
Tresner, a 33rd degree Mason, emphasized that the
17th degree ritual is "one of the most powerful and profound degrees of
"Here," said Tresner, "we encounter raw spiritual energy"
and "we begin to glimpse the spiritual power which is available" to
the person who is able to access it.4
X as Symbol of Transformation
Tresner goes on to suggest that the X, representing the Roman
numeral 10, also symbolizes the 10 yuds, or manifestations, of the Jewish
Cabala's Tree of Life (the Sephiroth). He notes that the candidate for this
degree wears two cordons, one black in color, the other white, which symbolizes
the duality of Masonic doctrine.
"The fact that they cross each
other," Tresner explains, "suggests the unions of opposites or
equilibrium (Ordo Ab Chao)."5
"In crossing," says Tresner, "they form an X shape." X, he
observes, "is an ancient symbol for transformation."6
"This degree," Tresner concludes, "provides a spiritual jolt or
jump-start in preparation for the transformation, refinement, and redefinition
Tresner chooses his words very carefully...and very
deliberately. I believe he is telling the Masonic candidates that this degree,
in which the mark of X is prominent, is to prepare them to wage war against Christians,
and to exalt their Man-King as the events prophesied in Bible prophecy roll
forward. Naturally, Tresner
would probably deny this meaning, so I leave it to you, dear reader, to
Page 158 from Richardson's Monitor of
Freemasonry, detailing the ritual ceremony of the Knights of the East and
West. In this ritual, the sacred word Abaddon
is expressed. Abaddon is a synonym for the name of the Devil who leads
millions of demons out of the pit of hell to torment earth in the last days.
However, the Masonic author of the authoritative Richardson's Monitor of
Freemasonry, no doubt lets the cat out of the bag, so to speak, by detailing
how, during this ritual ceremony for the Degree of Knight of the East and West,
the Sacred Word is given to the assembled members of the Lodge. That sacred
word is a shocker: It is Abaddon.
Yes, Abaddon is the Sacred Word for the Masonic Knights of East and
West. And the Bible reveals exactly who Abaddon is in Revelation 9:11:
And they had a king over them, which
is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon,
but in the Creek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
In Richardson's Monitor of Freemasonry it is
revealed that, following the announcement of the sacred word, Abaddon, the
Lodge drama for this fateful degree provides a demonstration "intended to
represent the end of the world."8
How very appropriate. How very telling!
X Symbol in the Masonic Lodge
One thing is for sure: The Masonic Order uses the X
not only for the revelatory 17th degree of Knights of East and West, but for
others as well. In the Royal Arch's Super-Excellent Master's Degree, the First
Sign given is the crossing of the hands over the breast/chest. This sign refers
to the penalty assessed if any secrets learned are ever divulged.
Then, in the ritual ceremony for the Select Master Degree, the Second Sign is
made by crossing the hands and arms just below the neck and dropping them
downward quickly. Again, this is a reminder of the disclosure penalty, which is
to have the body butchered and quartered.
In the ritual for the Intimate Secretary Degree, an X pattern is employed.
Richardson's Monitor of Freemasonry reveals what happens in the Lodge:
The brethren now fall, each on his
right knee, and they cross their hands and hold them up so that the thumb of
the right hand touches the left temple, and the left thumb the right temple...9
The X as Tumbling Cross and Sex
In ancient India, the X symbol was equated with the vajra (jewel-phallus).
Probably, this is yet another reason why the Masonic Lodge adopted this symbol
for many of their ritual activities. Masonry is, in fact, a deviant sex cult.
In her interesting encyclopedia called The Woman's Dictionary of Symbols and
Sacred Objects, Barbara Walker
calls the symbol the "Cross Saltire" which means literally
"tumbling cross" or a cross performing a somersault. In this sense,
it is decidedly anti-Christ in nature.
The Church of Scientology, New Age in its beliefs,
has as its logo a traditional cross (vertical) integrated with an X, or Cross
X as Sign of Death
Finally, as if to signify the somber, ghastly meaning of the letter X in
Freemasonry ritual, pomp and circumstance, it should be noted that upon his
death, when the departed Mason's body is given a Masonic funeral by the assembled
brethren, with his immediate family in attendance, the X again comes into play.
The Monitor of the Work, Lectures, and Ceremonies of Ancient Craft Masonry for
the Grand Lodge of the State of New York in part describes the ritual and scene
prescribed for funerals as follows:
The funeral honors are given by
extending the hands toward the grave with the palms up, the brethren repeating
'To the grave we consign the mortal
remains of our deceased brother.' The arms are then crossed over the breast,
the left above the right, the fingers touching the shoulders...10
You'll find among the photos and illustrations in
this section one of horror novelist Stephen
King seeming to emulate exactly this funeral procedure of crossing the
arms (X), the fingers touching the opposite shoulder. Is King, the master of
death literature, in fact taking on the image of death, the grim reaper? Does
King believe that this publicly displayed ritual act by him confers on the
famous novelist the "raw spiritual energy" mentioned by Masonic
authority Jim Tresner, 33°?
X ~ The Egyptian Connection
From what source do the Masons draw for this funeral symbolism of
the X? In my book, Dark Majesty, I explain the Egyptian connection:
In ancient Egypt, the mark of
"X" and the symbol of cross-bones in the symbol of an X was very
prominent in religious contexts. You can find the X on the walls of a number of
ancient Egyptians temples and pyramids... It is the sign of Osiris, the great
The ancient pharaohs, when they were
buried, had the legs crossed in the form of "X" as a sign of devotion
Today, as in ancient Egypt, Osiris the sun God
is worshipped; now the homage and veneration comes from the Masons and their
fellow Illuminists. These men mistakenly believe they are illumined
(enlightened) by their solar deity, the Great Architect, Jahbuhlun, or Lucifer.
They have even arranged for Osiris' watchful eye, the all-seeing eye, to be
pictured on each and every U.S.A. one dollar bill. It is the eye in the
capstone surrounded by the rays of the sun announcing to the whole world the
coming of a New Age, a New World Order (Novus Ordo Seclorum).

President, General Pervez Musharraf, tells a number of tales. Against a black,
circle background we find the familiar crescent moon and star of Islam
(actually, pagan origin, being representative of Diana, the witchcraft
"star" and "moon" Goddess) as well as the two crossed
swords (in the pagan era, a sign of Mars, God of war). It is doubtful
Musharraf has any idea of the actual meaning of these symbols.

The "X" Team? In Time magazine (July 14,
2003, p. 79), it was reported that Marvel Comics intended to publish a comic
book that featured a resurrected Princess Diana with superpowers. The title of
the first edition was to be "Di Another Day."
The plot was to have Princess Di and a number of
mutants resurrected from the dead partners gallivant around the world
performing feats for the good side fighting evil.
Princess Di and her mutant friends would all bear a
logo on their chest of a (circle) sun sign with a bold red "X"
superimposed on it.

Larry Summers, Secretary of the Treasury in the
second term of the Bill Clinton Administration, signals to his associates in
the Illuminati elite the strength of their Order. We see first his crossed

upon which he stands, the science of polar opposites, the Hegelian dialectic,

Allen Ginsberg, in an enigmatic example of the X.
With this photo-published in the obituary column of Newsweek (December 22,
1997)! ~ there was no caption, only Ginsberg's laudatory obit. The magazine
touted Ginsberg's "genius" and praised him for his "hymn of
alienation" during his earlier years ~ a valueless poem titled
"Howl." In fact beat poet Allen Ginsberg was a warped, child molester
advocate who boosted NAMBLA, the North American Man Boy Love Association.
He was a reprobate pedophile, but a hero of
Satanists, sadists, and assorted culture freaks, not to mention the Illuminati
elite. In the years before his death, they rewarded him with a $1 million
payment by Stanford University. In return, the University, a prime center of
Illuminist instruction, got Ginsberg's "papers," which reportedly
included "300,000 utility bills, newspaper clippings, paper napkins,
concert tickets, and anything else the gay poet chose to save."
Symbols galore adorn feminist Gloria Steinem's
apartment decor in New York. She's wearing a black outfit with belt with a

Its advocates claim the X design of the old
confederate flag (the "stars and bars") is adapted from the ancient
and historic Saint Andrew's cross. This is far from certain. The Confederacy
was secretly supported by Jesuits, Masons, and Jews (Rothschild interests) all
of whom were aware of its true, occultic origins. Moreover, the degree of the
Scottish Rite of Freemasonry emphasizes the X- shaped cross of Saint Andrew.

The legend of the contest between Hor-ra and Set, or Set-nu-bi, the same as Bar

"The day of the battle between Horus and Set." The later myth
