THIRTEEN The Riddle of the Great Seal of the United States, and the All-Seeing Eye of the Illuminati’s Serpent of Wisdom
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world… -Revelation 12:9
The Great Serpent of the Garden of Eden and the Lord God are identical. —Helena Blavatsky The Secret Doctrine
What is the true meaning of the curious, arcane symbols found in the Great Seal of the United States? Who designed this fantastic two-sided device, and why is it so prominently featured as art and decor on our most common item of currency —the U.S. one dollar bill?
Answering the Riddle
The symbols on the Great Seal at first glance seem to be incompatible with the history, political organization, and religious heritage of our great nation. An Egyptian pyramid? What has that to do with America? Strange Latin inscriptions? A bizarre all-seeing eye radiated by the sun’s rays? Odd, indeed.
Truly weird, especially, is the fact that there are two sides to the Great Seal. The front side pictures a strong, war-ready eagle with a constellation of stars in a cloud above its head. The reverse, the mystical side, is the one with the pyramid, Latin inscriptions, all-seeing eye, etc. Why two sides? After all, a seal is like a rubber stamp. It is used to authenticate documents to prove authenticity and affirm veracity and genuineness. You don’t need a reverse side on a “rubber stamp!”
In fact, both sides of the Great Seal, each with various images, have been around since the days of the Continental Congress.
In 1776, just hours after the Declaration of Independence was formally adopted, a committee composed of Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams met to design the Great Seal. They invited an artist, Pierre Eugene Du Simitiere, to join them and a design was approved. But the Continental Congress failed to approve it. So, in 1782, Congress called on William Barton, an authority on symbols and heraldry, and Charles Thompson, Secretary of Congress, to help sort out the process. Finally, out came the current day, two-sided Great Seal.1
Enter Rothschild’s Man, Haym Salomon
That, of course, is the official version of events. But some claim that a mysterious man from Europe, but living in Philadelphia, named Haym Salomon, secretly assisted the committee of Franklin, Jefferson, and Adams. Haym Salomon, a Jewish banker, just happened to be the American representative for the Rothschilds of Europe.
Salomon, it is said, bribed a number of American politicians and was able to get about anything he and his mentors wanted done. In the case of the Great Seal, the Rothschilds wanted symbols to be pictured in the Great Seal of United States befitting the aims of the Illuminati.
Though Jewish and Zionist in ambition, the Rothschilds were not worshippers of the God of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. They were Sabbatian/Frankist (Satanic) in theology. They sought (and still today seek) a Jewish Utopia or Kingdom on planet Earth. This Kingdom would be the New Age successor to ancient Babylon and Egypt. It would be a powerhouse nation that would, through magic and intellect, conquer the world. America would be its proxy.
America would be its alter ego. America, then, must be fashioned into a cabalistic, Jewish state. All Hail the New Egypt, Empire of the Ages, child of the Sun God of the ancients! America, the New Jerusalem, must unite with Old Jerusalem, and the Zionist Illuminati must reign!
Rothschild agent Haym Salomon had millions of dollars of largesse to spread around in bribes. And so he did. A good portion of the money went to fund the Continental Congress and its operations. Some went into the Treasury for the Revolutionary War effort. Some went into politicians’ pockets.
Rothschild eventually got the images he had demanded on the Great Seal, though not without opposition. The design was bitterly opposed by the few who recognized the Masonic and Illuminist elements.
As for Haym Salomon, few history textbooks mention him. But he is privily called by Illuminati Jews “The Financier of the American Revolution.” Only recently, scattered bits of propaganda have begun to be floated about him. A few Jewish books speak of his “grand accomplishments,” offering a more cheery and less honest version of his life and his activities as banker for the American Revolution.
The ultimate goal of the Illuminati is to eventually bring Haym Salomon out of the closet, so to speak. Someday, his name will be in lights. He’ll be immortalized in print, in movies, and on TV as a great and noble hero, akin to a George Washington or Thomas Jefferson. Statues will be built to honor him. One already has, in Philadelphia. Mark my words and mark your calendar for the future and see if what I tell you isn’t so.
Now, let us examine the symbols on America’s Great Seal and see if we can make sense of their true, esoteric meaning and purposes. Let us wipe away the gloss and get down to the base surface to better understand. This is vital because of the future of the United States —and the destiny of all humanity —is wrapped up, and is revealed, in this collection of Illuminist symbols and marks.
The Ashlar Stones and The Pyramid
Masonry is a peculiar Egypto-Babylonia-Jewish institution, and so the pyramid itself hearkens back to the Dynasty of the pharaohs and to the Gods and Goddesses of ancient Egypt. The stones which make up the pyramid are also of esoteric significance. In the Masonic philosophy it is taught that unenlightened man is in a rude, natural state.
Having little or no “light” and without the spiritual illumination offered by the Mystery Religions he is likened to an imperfect or rough ashlar stone. But once enlightened and illuminated, he is crafted into a man of education, sophistication, discipline, and culture. He reaches upward toward spiritual perfection. He is then a perfect ashlar stone.
In many pagan religions this concept of the Rough vs. Perfect Ashlar was taught. In Freemasonry, it is heavily emphasized. The pyramid’s structure is fitted only with perfect ashlar stones, it is said, meticulously chosen by “The Builders” who watch for flaws and reject the rough, or imperfect ashlar.
Likewise, the higher level Masons discover that the pyramid reflects, or parallels, the New World Order (Novus Ordo Seclorum) they and their Illuminized superiors are building under the watchful eye of the Great Architect of the Universe, whose secret and sacred name, the Royal Arch Mason learns, is Jahbuhlun.
The Builders (the Perfect Ashlars), then, are the Illuminati and their minions. Their building project is the renovation and reconstruction (Perestroika or Tikkun Olam) of the whole earth. Of course, in order to build the New Deal of the Ages, they must first tear down the old. Civilization as we know it today must be razed and destroyed by dialectic chaos, so that the new order may be ushered in: Ordo Ab Chao
It is when this ambitious goal is achieved that, symbolically, the capstone will be set in place atop the pyramid. Then he who lies within the living stones shall come forth to rule. The Phoenix (Satan and his “son”) shall rise from the flames of destruction just as the legendary phoenix bird arose.
The Phoenix, however, is, in reality a cockatrice, a dragon-bird, a flying serpent. The word “pyramid,” incidentally, literally means “amidst the fire.” And now you know the true, occultic meaning of the word.
Peering Into the All-Seeing Eye
Simply put, Freemasons, under the direction of Haym Salomon, Ben Franklin, and others, designed the Great Seal with its all-seeing eye in the capstone amidst the radiant sun background. As followers of Egyptianism, it has long been assumed that the eye is that of Osiris, the Egyptian sun God, and/or of his son, Horus. This is true, but there is much more.
Osiris, of course, was worshipped as the Sun. Albert Pike, former Sovereign Grand Commander, wrote:
“The sun…is the All-Seeing Eye in our Lodges.”2
Pike goes on to say that,
“the Blazing Star (the pentagram deity) has been recognized as an emblem of Omniscience, or the All-Seeing Eye, which to the Ancients was the Sun.”3
The Illuminati and their subordinates, the Masons, honor the Deity of countless names. Yes, one of those names is Osiris, with his son Horus. But the Illuminati Deity is a concealed God who hides his true identity in a multitude of disguises and subterfuges. He is called “The Sun,” the “Central Sun,” “Hiram Abiff,” the one with the “Ineffable Name,” “Ein Soph,” the “Great Architect of the Universe,” “Abaddon,” “Mahabone,” and “Jahbuhlun.”
Ostensibly the Illuminati worship a pantheon, a multiplicity of Gods. But, not so. These are all fronts for the elite worship of Lucifer. He is their true God, the God of Light. As Albert Pike stated in Morals and Dogma, “Doubt it not.”
Their God is The Serpent
Now, the Bible, in Isaiah 14 and Revelation 12:9, identifies Lucifer as “the great dragon…that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world.” So, by whatever name you call him, the God of the Illuminati and Masonry is the Serpent. In fact, in A Bridge to Light, an official textbook of the Supreme Mother Council, 33°, the highest council of the Scottish Rite, Rex Hutchens, 33°, reveals that “the body of the Holy Spirit, the universal agent,” is none other than “the Serpent devouring his own tail.”4
That is, the Oroboros serpent.
Remember, in all their writings, the most revered of Masonic scholars — Manly P. Hall, Albert Mackey, Albert Pike, etc.—claim that the Masonic rituals and teachings come from the “mysteries” of ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks, Persians and others. Thus, we glean understanding when we read, in Earth’s Earliest Ages, this statement by G. Pember:
“There is little doubt that the culmination of the mysteries was the worship of Satan himself.”5
You’ll also recall our discussion elsewhere in this book that the Illuminist and Masonic theology is solidly based on the Jewish Cabala (Kaballah or Quaballah). Indeed, almost all occult and magical belief systems are founded on the principles and teachings of the Jewish Cabala. In her most famous book, The Secret Doctrine, Helena Blavatsky praised Satan as the teacher of humanity.6 He is to be thanked, Blavatsky says, for setting men on the path to divinity and liberty. It is, she emphasizes, the Cabala that “unveils the secret.” To what secret is she referring?
Listen, as Blavatsky flatly states the core doctrine of the mysteries, of occultism, of Illuminism:
The Great Serpent of the Garden of Eden and the Lord God are identical.7
The Devourer of Self
Barbara Walker, researcher of occultism and paganism, writes:
As Lord of Death, Osiris was sometimes identified with the Great Serpent of the underworld, and sometimes was painted in the same serpentine form, bent around so his toes touched his head.8
The serpent, or Satan, as we know from the scriptures, is God of the dead.
He is graphically pictured in the occult world as a serpent biting his own tail; how appropriate: A devourer of himself! And that is what actually happens when a person defies God and worships the Adversary. He or she is “biting his own tail” —tragically and pathetically devouring himself.
The oroboros, or serpent biting its own tail, is pictured on the cover of Codex Magica. This book unmasks the Illuminati worship of this detestable creature, a worship of which virtually every person on earth is dangerously and hopelessly unaware. Since the Illuminati, Masons, and fellow cabalists have amassed such tremendous political, financial, social, and technological powers, is it not a frightening thing to realize that these men are not only religious, their religion is Satanism, and their God is the Devil?
The destructive path, therefore, is the way of the Illuminati. As I have demonstrated, these wicked agents of the Serpent are psychopaths and present a clear and present threat and danger to our lives. But the gravest danger is that which confronts the souls of billions of unsaved, ignorant human beings. If they fall for the Lie of the Serpent, they will suffer total destruction and suffer loss for eternity.
In Occult Geometry, A.S. Raleigh examines the symbol of the circle. He writes:
One form of the circle is a serpent with a tail in its mouth…It is the return to Unity… The true circle symbolizes evolution, the Serpent Circle involution… the power brings Unity out of diversity… The Serpent Circle is, therefore, ever the symbol of the destructive.9
Later, in the photos and illustrations presented in this chapter, you will discover the startling artwork on a Jewish New Year’s postcard by Jewish artist Alain Roth back in 1915. The design shows the Oroboros Serpent (Satan) encircling and conquering the whole earth. Happy New Year?
As I have proven over and over by a preponderance of documentation, we cannot separate the murderous goals and activities of the Illuminati from their religious belief system. Their inspiration, their fanatical zealotry, comes from their teacher, Satan, who has given them a thorough set of instructions—an UnBible if you will, in the Jewish Cabala. In this UnBible , the Serpent plays the key role. He is praised as the “Serpent of Wisdom.” The destiny of the Illuminati and the whole world is said to be in his hands.

Reason (La Raison), an engraving by Darcis in the National Museum, Paris, France, was said to capture the spirit of the bloody, Illuminati-inspired French Revolution. What we see is symbolism of the unholy trinity of Lucifer-Father (Lion), Mother (Goddess), and Son (allseeing eye).

Sir Walter Raleigh, the impetuous adventurer and polished courtier, was also a man of considerable literary accomplishments. Much of the poetry he wrote has been lost, but several impressive prose works survive. The most ambitious and distinguished of these is The History of the World, written between 1607 and 1614, during his years of confinement in the Tower of London under a death sentence. Although Raleigh’s name did not appear on the elaborately engraved frontispiece to the first edition (above), there was no secret about the authorship. The book was immediately banned by King James I.
Raleigh set out to write a universal chronicle that would parallel the Old Testament chronology in its initial chapters but bring the story up to his own times, in which the history of England would be related to that of the rest of the world. He got only as far as the fall of Macedonia in 130 B.C.
James’s displeasure was caused by Raleigh’s portrayals of Assyrian Queen Semiramis, which was seen as a tribute to Elizabeth I, and of her effeminate successor, Ninus, which the king interpreted as an unflattering caricature of himself.
Sir Walter Raleigh’s distinguished book, The History of The World (written between 1607 and 1614) had this illustration as its frontispiece. The book was banned by England’s King James I because it revealed too much, ostensibly for its portrayals of Babylonian Queen Semiramis and her effeminate son, Ninus. More likely is that the artwork shown here revealed far too many occult secrets, including the androgynous (male/female) figure holding aloft the globe, the all-seeing eye, etc.
