It's no fairytale - one day, you can be free from all the hurt, hunger, aloneness, crime, and chaos infecting the world today. Answer: A The Scriptures promise that Jesus will return to this earth in the same manner that He left at His ascension--in a visible, literal, bodily, personal manner. Answer: A Every man, woman, and child living in the world when Jesus returns will see Him at His second coming. Answer: A Jesus is coming back to this earth to reward His people as He promised and to take them to the beautiful home He has prepared for them. Answer: A The righteous dead will be raised from their graves, given perfect, immortal bodies like that of Christ, and caught up into the clouds to meet the Lord. A A Does the Bible give specific information regarding the nearness of Christ's second coming? Answer: A a€?Satan has invented many false teachings about the second coming and is deceiving millions into believing that Christ has already come or that He will come in some non-biblical manner. Answer: A There is great danger in becoming so busy with the cares of this life or so entranced by the pleasures of sin that the coming of the Lord may slip up on us as the Flood did on the world in Noah's day, and we will be surprised, unprepared, and lost.
It is true that a terrible tribulation will cover the earth just before Jesus returns to deliver His people. 9.A A Does the Bible give specific information regarding the nearness of Christ's second coming? Answer: A Satan has invented many false teachings about the second coming and is deceiving millions into believing that Christ has already come or that He will come in some non-biblical manner. NO treatise which deals with symbolism would be complete without a section devoted to the consideration of cryptograms.
The arcana of the ancient Mysteries were never revealed to the profane except through the media of symbols. The temples of the ancient Mysteries evolved their own sacred languages, known only to their initiates and never spoken save in the sanctuary. Secret alphabets were not entirely satisfactory, however, for although they rendered unintelligible the true nature of the writings, their very presence disclosed the fact of concealed information--which the priests also sought to conceal. During the Middle Ages scores of writers--members of secret political or religious organizations--published books containing ciphers. Many churchmen, it is interesting to note, used cryptograms, fearing excommunication or a worse fate should their scientific researches be suspected.
One year after the publication of the first Great "Shakespearian" Folio, a remarkable volume on cryptogram, and ciphers was published.
A careful inspection of the first four "Shakespeare" folios discloses the use throughout the volumes of several styles of type differing in minute but distinguishable details.
The biliteral cipher was not confined to the writings of Bacon and "Shakespeare," however, but appears in many books published during Lord Bacon's lifetime and for nearly a century after his b death. The Baconian biliteral cipher is difficult to use today, owing to the present exact standardization of type and the fact that so few books are now hand set.
At this point the inquirer might reasonably expect the letters to make intelligible words; but he will very likely be disappointed, for, as in the case above, the letters thus extracted are themselves a cryptogram, doubly involved to discourage those who might have a casual acquaintance with the biliteral system. After the document to be deciphered has been reduced to its "a" and "b" equivalents, it is then broken up into five-letter groups and the message read with the aid of the above table.
This Plate is reproduced from Bacon's De Augmentis Scientiarum, and shows the two alphabets as designed by him for the purpose of his cipher. Of course, by moving the inner disc of the wheel cipher, many different combinations in addition to the one given above can be made of the letters, but this is the only one which will produce sense, and the cryptogrammatist must keep on experimenting until he discovers a logical and intelligible message.
There are several other forms of the literal cipher in which letters are substituted for each other by a prearranged sequence. By substituting the letters of the lower alphabet for their equivalents in the upper one, a meaningless conglomeration results, the hidden message being decoded by reversing the process.
The acroamatic cipher is the most subtle of all, for the parable or allegory is susceptible of several interpretations. Beginning with the word VISITA and reading clockwise, the seven initial letters of the seven words inscribed in the outer circle read: VITRIOL. The first circle portrays the divine antecedents of justice, the second the universal scope of justice, and the third the results of human application of justice. In the third or inner circle is man, a tenfold creature, consisting of nine parts--three of spirit, three of intellect, and three of soul--enclosed within one constitution.
The most simple numerical cipher is that in which the letters of the alphabet are exchanged for numbers in ordinary sequence.
Authors sometimes based their cryptograms upon the numerical value of their own names; for example, Sir Francis Bacon repeatedly used the cryptic number 33--the numerical equivalent of his name.
There are also numerical ciphers from which the cryptic message may be extracted by counting every tenth word, every twentieth word, or every fiftieth word. To render more difficult the decoding of arbitrary ciphers, however, the characters are seldom broken up into words, and, further, the table of recurrence is partly nullified by assigning two or more different characters to each letter, thereby making it impossible to estimate accurately the frequency of recurrence.
In addition to the foregoing classifications there are a number of miscellaneous systems of secret writing, some employing mechanical devices, others colors. Curious alphabets were invented by the early and mediæval philosophers to conceal their doctrines and tenets from the profane.
No better way can be found of introducing to the "Royal Art" a seeker after the mysteries of symbolical philosophy than to place at his disposal an actual example of alchemical writing. In addition to the 26 leaves here reproduced there are ten bottles or retorts, each half filled with varicolored substances.
The third bottle is entirely black save for a golden tree trunk having six lopped-off branches and terminating in five branches which end in knobs and protrude from the neck of the bottle.
The eighth bottle is divided horizontally by a golden band, from which rises a golden stem ending in five leaves protruding from the neck of the bottle.
In his dedication the author and illustrator of the manuscript declares that he has set forth all the operations of the Great Work. To protect themselves from the persecution of despotic theology the mediæval alchemists couched their philosophy in Christian terminology, although the great secrets of the Art were derived largely from Egyptian or Arabian adepts. The publication of this manuscript places at the student's disposal the most profound secrets of the Hermetic Art. Under the sun, moon, and Mercury are the words Three and One, an inference that the three are one. In the upper left it is written that without the light of the Moon the Sun does not heat the earth and that into the Moon the Sun emits its fruits.
And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? The staggering threefold (Luke 9:26) brightness of His coming will stretch from horizon to horizon, and the atmosphere will be charged with brilliant glory like lightning.
As the cloud nears the earth, Jesus will send His angels, and they will quickly gather together all of the righteous people in preparation for the trip back to heaven (Matthew 24:31).
He will restore to His people all of the joys and glories of Eden that Adam and Eve lost by sinning.
Then the righteous living will also be given bodies like Christ and will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air. This earthquake will be of such a devastating nature that it will leave the world in a state of total destruction. Through the Holy Spirit and my conscience, Jesus knocks and asks to come into my heart so that He can change my life. The use of ciphers has long been recognized as indispensable in military and diplomatic circles, but the modern world has overlooked the important rôle played by cryptography in literature and philosophy. Symbolism fulfilled the dual office of concealing the sacred truths from the uninitiated and revealing them to those qualified to understand the symbols.
The illumined priests considered it sacrilege to discuss the sacred truths of the higher worlds or the divine verities of eternal Nature in the same tongue as that used by the vulgar for wrangling and dissension. Through patience or persecution, the keys to these alphabets were eventually acquired and the contents of the documents revealed to the unworthy. Secret writing became a fad; every European court had its own diplomatic cipher, and the intelligentsia vied with one another in devising curious and complicated cryptograms. Only recently an intricate cipher of Roger Bacon's has been unraveled, revealing the fact that this early scientist was well versed in the cellular theory. Accompanying this chapter are facsimiles of Lord Bacon's biliteral alphabet as it appeared in the 1640 English translation of De Augmentis Scientiarum. All the combinations used in the Baconian biliteral cipher consist of groups containing five letters each.
Compare each letter with the two types of letters in the biliteral alphabet table reproduced from Lord Bacon's De Augmentis Scientiarum.
The smaller, or inner, alphabet moves around so that any one of its letters may be brought opposite any me of he letters on the larger, or outer, alphabet. There is also a form of the literal cipher in which the actual cryptogram is written in the body of the document, but unimportant words are inserted between important ones according to a prearranged order. A notable example of this practice is found on the title page of Montaigue's Essays, third edition, where an initial B is formed by two arches and an F by a broken arch.
The capital letters of the seven words in the outer circle read clockwise, form the word SVLPHVR. This is a very simple alchemical enigma, but is a reminder that those studying works on Hermeticism, Rosicrucianism, alchemy, and Freemasonry should always be on the lookout for concealed meanings hidden either in Parables and allegories or in cryptic arrangements of numbers, letters, and words. Hence, the first circle deals with divine principles, the second circle with mundane affairs, and the third circle with man. The upper and light section is called the Supreme Region and is the abode of the gods, the good spirits, and the heroes. Therefore, the greater the number of arbitrary characters used to represent any single letter of the alphabet, the more difficult it is to decipher an arbitrary cryptogram. A few make use of sundry miscellaneous objects to represent words and even complete thoughts. Some of these alphabets are still used to a limited extent in the higher degrees of Freemasonry. The text of this manuscript is as enigmatic as are its diagrams; but to him who will meditate upon the profound significance of both, the deeper issues of mysticism in due time will be made clear.
The first, and larger, part of the illustrations deals with the Hermetic philosophy, explaining its teachings and doctrines.
Ever upon the Grade of Black (the return into Chaos from which new creations are possible) follows the Grade of the Neophytes, the New Birth, which is often repeated with impressive lucidity. The contents of the vessel are transparent, and it is written that "the black clouds are past and the great whiteness has been completed." The ninth bottle (from the neck of which rises a golden white rose) is also partly filled with a transparent liquid.
He prays to the Holy Spirit that he may be included in the number of those who have pursued this most noble of the sciences and that he may be set always in the path of righteousness.
The Mohammedans were masters of the Hermetic secrets and even the great Paracelsus secured from them the major part of his knowledge.
At first the task of decipherment may seem hopeless and the superficially-minded will be tempted to scoff at the possibility of real knowledge being perpetuated in such unconventional fashion. In the upper panel it is declared that the sun-bird battles with the earth-serpent, who, tearing out his own entrails, gives them to the bird. In the center stands the Paschal Virgin, in her hair the prime virtue which is described as an herb flourishing in wells. The verse at the top reads:," This Stone is so noble and worthy that Nature has hidden it in her recesses. In the upper right the true herb of the philosophers is described, and it is declared that whoever believes in and it shall be [spiritually] rich.
The verse at the top of the page reads: "Not only must this material be fixed, but it must be allowed to enter into everything so that this material may be well completed and have infinite virtue. At the left holding a book stands Aristotle, who is described as the most learned of all the Greeks. The writing at the upper left is, in substance, the Lord's Prayer, with the addition of the words Jesus and Mary at the end.
The words at the top read: "I, the bird [the adept], speak into thine ears from the Sun, Moon and Azoth.
Above the figure of the Queen are three lines stating, in substance, that in the beginning of the book it was written of her that from her maternal breasts she nourished the Sun, and that he who was capable of converting her into Primal matter possessed rare skill. This page, which concludes that part of the Hermetic manuscript bearing the symbols of the Secret Work, contains a number of emblems not directly correlated. We cannot know the exact day and hour of Christ's return (Matthew 24:36), but we can be confident that we are the people who will live to see Jesus return. If the art of deciphering cryptograms could be made popular, it would result in the discovery of much hitherto unsuspected wisdom possessed by both ancient and mediæval philosophers. The literature of the fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries is permeated with ciphers, few of which have ever been decoded.

The most famous of all literal cryptograms is the famous biliteral cipher described by Sir Francis Bacon in his De Augmentis Scientiarum. These ciphers may have been added to the original plays, which are much longer in the folios than in the original quartos, full scenes having been added in some instances. The cipher may run through an entire book and be placed therein at the time of printing without the knowledge of the original author, for it does not necessitate the changing of either words or punctuation. A comparison of the "d" in "wisdom" with the "d" in "and" discloses a large loop at the top of the first, while the second shows practically no loop at all. In some, cases the inner alphabet is written backwards, but in the present example, both alphabets read the same way. The biliteral system did not in every instance make use of two alphabets in which the differences were as perceptible as in the example here given, but the two alphabets were always used; sometimes variations are so minute that it requires a powerful magnifying glass to distinguish the difference between the "a" and "b" types of letters. The literal cipher also includes what are called acrostic signatures--that is, words written down the column by the use of the first letter of each line and also more complicated acrostics in which the important letters are scattered through entire paragraphs or chapters.
Any picture or drawing with other than its obvious meaning may be considered a pictorial cryptogram. Pictorial cryptograms are sometimes accompanied by the key necessary for their decipherment. The religious and philosophical writings of all nations abound with acroamatic cryptograms, that is, parables and allegories. They are satisfied with the moral interpretation of the parable and forget that each parable and allegory is capable of seven interpretations, of which the seventh--the highest--is complete and all-inclusive, whereas the other six (and lesser) interpretations are fragmentary, revealing but part of the mystery. On the at the top of the picture sits Themis, the presiding spirit of law, and at her feet three other queens--Juno, Minerva, and Venus--their robes ornamented with geometric figures. The third circle is further divided into three parts called ages: the Golden Age of spiritual truth in the upper right section, the Iron Age of spiritual darkness in the lower right section and the Bronze Age--a composite of the two occupying the entire left half of the inner circle and itself divided into three parts. Many cryptograms have been produced in which numbers in various sequences are substituted for letters, words, or even complete thoughts.
Imperfect pagination, though generally attributed to carelessness, often conceals important secrets.
The first important word may be found by counting 100, the second by counting 90, the third by counting 80, and so on until the count of 10 is reached. John Wilkins, afterwards Bishop of Chester, in 1641 circulated an anonymous essay entitled Mercury, or the Secret and Swift Messenger.
The system of exchanging letters of the alphabet for hieroglyphic figures is too easily decoded to be popular. The secret alphabets of the ancients are comparatively easy to decode, the only requisites being a table of frequency, a knowledge of the language in which the cryptogram was originally written, a moderate amount of patience, and a little ingenuity. But as these more elaborate devices were seldom employed by the ancients or by the mediæval philosophers and alchemists, they have no direct bearing upon religion and philosophy. Probably the most famous is the angelic writing, termed in the above plate "The Writing called Malachim." Its figures are supposedly derived from the constellations. Interspersed among these are portraits of great teachers and satirical representations of bunglers and their mistaken views. Exclusive of his own researches, the main sources of his information are said to be the writings of St.
In their manifestoes the Rosicrucians also disclose the Arabian source of their secret doctrine. The scoffer will not realize that one of the purposes of the document is to awaken ridicule and thus preserve more effectually its arcana from the profane. Thomas Aquinas concerning the composition of the Philosopher's Stone, which is described as of the purest transparency; in it all the forms of the elements and their contrarieties were visible. No satisfactory translation can be found for the words under the outstretched arm of the man holding the upper part of the tree. The text about the fountain declares that Saturn collects the white Mercury, which is called the Water of Earth; and the Earth collects the red Mercury, which is called the Water of Heaven. At the left stands Morienus, the philosopher, pointing towards the salamander who "lives and grows in fire." Morienus, who was born in the twelfth century, became the disciple of the great Arabian alchemist Adfar, from whom he learned the Hermetic arts. The work is perfected with little labor." The panel to the left describes the nature of primordial matter and the drink of the Philosophers. And these are just a few of many, many positive signs that show we are in the closing days of earth's history. Spiritism has invaded the churches, as well, with the false teaching of the immortality of the soul. For example, Jesus stated specifically that He will not appear in the desert or come to the seance chambers (verse 26). As a free gift, He bestows upon me His own righteous character so I can stand unafraid before a holy God when my life is changed by Jesus.
They surround the holy city to capture it (Revelation 20:9), and fire comes down from God out of heaven and devours them. It would prove that many apparently verbose and rambling authors were wordy for the sake of concealing words.
With reverence the wise pierce the veil and with clearer vision contemplate the reality; but the ignorant, unable to distinguish between the false and the true, behold a universe of symbols.
Secret alphabets also were invented, and whenever the secrets of the wise were committed to writing, characters meaningless to the uninformed were employed. The result was the appearance of cryptic systems of writing designed to conceal the presence of both the message and the cryptogram.
Many of the magnificent scientific and philosophic intellects of this period dared not publish their findings, because of the religious intolerance of their day. In spite of the rapid progress made by science in the last two hundred and fifty years, it still remains ignorant concerning many of the original discoveries made by mediæval investigators.
It is possible that this cipher was inserted for political purposes into many documents and volumes published during the seventeenth century.
Consider carefully the differences between these four and note that each alphabet has the power of either the letter a or the letter b, and that when reading a word its letters are divisible into one of two groups: those which correspond to the letter a and those which correspond to the letter b. Contrast the "i" in "wisdom" with the "i" in "understanding." In the former, the lines are curved and in the latter angular.
There are probably a score of different systems used in the "Shakespeare" folio alone, some so intricate that they may forever baffle all attempts at their decipherment. The two accompanying alchemical cryptograms illustrate another form of the literal cipher involving the first letter of each word. Instances of pictorial cipher are frequently found in Egyptian symbolism and early religious art.
A figure may point toward the starting point of the cipher or carry in its hand some implement disclosing the system of measurement used. The acroamatic is unique in that the document containing it may be translated or reprinted without affecting the cryptogram.
The creation myths of the world are acroamatic cryptograms, and the deities of the various pantheons are only cryptic characters which, if properly understood, become the constituents of a divine alphabet.
The capitals of the six words in the inner circle, when properly arranged, also read ESTSOL. The axis of law connects the throne, of divine justice above with the throne of human judgment at the bottom of the picture. Between these two extremes is the larger section in which are blended the powers and impulses of both the superior and the inferior regions. The lowest division of the Bronze Age depicts ignorant man controlled by force, the central the partly awakened man controlled by jurisprudence, and the upper the spiritually illuminated man controlled by love. The reading of numerical ciphers usually depends upon the possession of specially arranged tables of correspondences. This cipher can be made more difficult by reversing the alphabet so that Z becomes 1, Y 2, X 3, and so on. The mispaginations found in the 1623 folio of "Shakespeare" and the consistent recurrence of similar errors in various volumes printed about the same period have occasioned considerable thought among scholars and cryptogrammatists. In this little volume, which was largely derived from the more voluminous treatises of Trithemius and Selenus, the author sets forth a method whereby musicians can converse with each other by substituting musical notes for the letters of the alphabet. Albert: Pike describes an arbitrary cipher based upon the various parts of the Knights Templars' cross, each angle representing a letter. Its most familiar form is the Morse code for use in telegraphic and wireless communication. The mystics of the Middle Ages, borrowing the terminology of the various arts and sciences, evolved a system of cryptography which concealed the secrets of the human soul under terms generally applied to chemistry, biology, astronomy, botany, and physiology. Advanced students of occult philosophy will come upon many valuable documents in which these figures are used.
The systematically arranged part shows with wonderful clearness the color development of the alchemical processes from blue-gold over black to white and rose.
This unopened and unpublished manuscript belongs to the order of the most important Precepts and Documents of the Rosicrucians, and Freemasons. The lower half of the vessel is filled with the blood-red Elixir and from the neck rises a red rose with many petals and of extreme beauty. Hence it should be borne in mind that the relating of the alchemical teachings to Biblical symbolism was a gesture of expediency. A few sheets (such as those here reproduced) represent the life work of one who has consecrated himself to the task of tearing aside the veil of the World Virgin.
It is Mercury boiled down and thickened, cooked in neutral earth with sulphurous heat and is called the Prime Material of the metals. Above the bird is written: "This is the sun in the form of a bird," and above the dragon "This is the dragon devouring the bird. The statement at the upper left is to the effect that there are four spirits with two faces, which are called the elements. The lower panel reads thus: "After the Stone has been well refined it will appear to penetrate thoroughly. The text to the left of the frog reads: "Through Him who created the Heavens and the Earth I am the Philosopher's Stone, and in my body I carry something the wise seek.
A great philosopher has shown that the stone is a certain white sun, to see which needs a telescope.
Jesus is coming soon, but there is a lot of popular misconceptions regarding just how He's coming.
Even religious leaders are denying the plain Bible teachings of Creation, the Flood, the divinity of Christ, the second coming of Christ, and many other vital Bible truths.
Only a small percentage of the citizens of our large cities attend church services regularly, but they jam pleasure resorts by the thousands. There is no reason to be deceived if we learn what God's book teaches about Christ's second coming. Those who deny, ignore, or make light of Christ's second advent (as a literal, soon-coming event) are specifically fulfilling Bible prophecy--and doing the devil a very great service. It may well be said of Nature--the Great Mother--that she is ever tracing strange characters upon the surface of things, but only to her eldest and wisest sons as a reward for their faith and devotion does she reveal the cryptic alphabet which is the key to the import of these tracings. Having thus devised a method of transmitting their secrets to posterity, the illuminati encouraged the circulation of certain documents specially prepared through incorporating into them ciphers containing the deepest secrets of mysticism and philosophy.
In order to preserve the fruitage of their intellectual labors for mankind, these pioneers of progress concealed their discoveries in ciphers, trusting that future generations, more kindly than their own, would discover and appreciate their learning. The only record of these important findings is that contained in the cryptograms of the volumes which they published.
The biliteral cipher requires the use of two styles of type, one an ordinary face and the other specially cut.
It is well known that ciphers were used for the same reason as early as the Council of Nicæa. In order to employ the biliteral cipher, a document must contain five times as many letters as there are in the cipher message to be concealed, for it requires five letters to conceal one.
Every cryptogram based upon the arrangement or combination of the letters of the alphabet is called a literal cipher.
There are also frequent instances in which the cryptographer purposely distorted or improperly clothed some figure in his drawing by placing the hat on backwards, the sword on the wrong side, or the shield on the wrong arm, or by employing some similar artifice. Parables and allegories have been used since remote antiquity to present moral truths in an attractive and understandable manner.
The initiated few comprehend the true nature of this alphabet, but the uninitiated many worship the letters of it as gods. Upon the latter throne is seated a queen with a scepter in her hand, before whom stands the winged goddess Nemesis--the angel of judgment.
Both the second and third circles revolve upon the axis of law, but the divine source, of law--Heavenly Justice--is concealed by clouds. The numerical cryptograms of the Old Testament are so complicated that only a few scholars versed in rabbinical lore have ever sought to unravel their mysteries.

By inserting a non-significant, or uncounted, number after each of the significant numbers the cipher is still more effectively concealed, thus: 23-16-5-9-18. In Baconian cryptograms, all page numbers ending in 89 seem to have a special significance. Two persons understanding the code could converse with each other by merely playing certain notes upon a piano or other instrument. The many curious alphabets that have been devised are rendered worthless, however, by the table of recurrence.
This form of cipher may be complicated somewhat by embodying dots and dashes into a document in which periods and colons are dots, while commas and semicolons are dashes. Ciphers of this nature can only be decoded by individuals versed in the deep philosophic principles upon which these mediæval mystics based their theories of life.
In their search of the Scriptures for the arcana of Israel, the Qabbalists substantiated in great measure the alchemical interpretations of the Bible, for the soul of alchemy is one with that of Qabbalism. Years of research and experimentation, days of incessant labor, nights of prayer and meditation, and at last comes the realization of accomplishment! In caverns yet dark, and forbidding mountains, if a Stone be found which a thousand years ago Nature made out of her fruits, it will bring him that has it out of trouble. Thomas Aquinas is a short paragraph praising the excellence of the Philosophic Stone, declaring that from the one substance can be derived three and from the three, two. It declares that by putting fire beneath the feet of the symbolic figure it is possible to extract therefrom the sun and the moon which the human body is shown elevating to a position of dignity above its head. At the upper right it is written that fire lives on air, air on water, water on earth, and thus the Stone lives Peacefully on all the pure elements.
To dissolve it in water requires the Sun and Moon, and here one must open 200 telescopes, putting body and soul in one mass.
For in Mercury there is something the wise seek, not invoked except by white or red ferment." The first part of this quotation is based upon the Emerald Tablet of Hermes (which see). So take a few minutes to understand what the Bible really says about the second coming so you won't be left behind! False christs will appear and do miracles on the earth (Matthew 24:23-27), but Jesus will remain in the clouds above the earth at His second coming. It is said that 80percent of the world's total knowledge has been brought forth in the last decade and that 90percent of all the scientists who have ever lived are alive today. Psychiatry and the traditions of pseudo-intellectuals have replaced the Bible in many religious circles.
If those interested in Freemasonic research would give serious consideration to this subject, they might find in books and manuscripts of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries the information necessary to bridge the gap in Masonic history that now exists between the Mysteries of the ancient world and the Craft Masonry of the last three centuries. Some--such as the famous angelic writing--are still retained in the higher degrees of Masonry. Thus mediæval philosophers disseminated their theories throughout Europe without evoking suspicion, since volumes containing these cryptograms could be subjected to the closest scrutiny without revealing the presence of the hidden message. The differences between the two fonts are in many case so minute that it requires a powerful magnifying glass to detect them. The biliteral cipher somewhat resembles a telegraph code in which letters are changed into dots and dashes; according to the biliteral system, however, the dots and dashes are represented respectively by a's and b's.
The "o" in "more" differs only from the "o" in "wisdom" in that it a tiny line continues from the top over towards the "r." The "a" in "than" is thinner and more angular than the "a" in "are," while the "r" in "riches" differs from that in "desired" in that the final upright stroke terminates in a ball instead of a sharp point. In addition to the simple pictorial cipher, there is a more technical form in which words or letters are concealed by the number of stones in a wall, by the spread of birds' wings in flight, by ripples on the surface of water, or by the length and order of lines used in shading. The much-discussed fifth finger on the Pope's hand in Raphael's Sistine Madonna and the sixth toe on Joseph's foot in the same artist's Marriage of the Virgin are cunningly concealed cryptograms.
The acroamatic cryptogram is a pictorial cipher drawn in words and its symbolism must be so interpreted. All of the symbols and figures ornamenting the plate are devoted to a detailed amplification of the principles here outlined.
Musical cryptograms can be involved to an inconceivable point; by certain systems it is possible to take an already existing musical theme and conceal in it a cryptogram without actually changing the composition in any way. According to Edgar Allan Poe, a great cryptogrammatist, the most common letter of the English language is E, the other letters in their order of frequency are as follows: A, O, I, D, H, N, R, S, T, V, Y, C, F, Q L, M, W, B, K, P, Q, X, Z. There are also codes used by the business world which can be solved only by the use of a private code book.
Much information relating to the invisible nature of man is concealed under what seem to be chemical experiments or scientific speculations. Both schools have a common end, being who concerned with the mystery of human regeneration, despite apparent discrepancies in their symbolism.
This is the real story told by the grotesque figures drawn so painstakingly upon the faded, worm-eaten pages.
It also declares that Nature wisely provided a mixture of elements so that earth can communicate its dryness to fire, fire its heat to air, air its moisture to water, and water its coldness to earth.
Close it well with a little fire, and await the wonders of Nature." The large red oval filling the lower half of the leaf is evidently the egg or vessel of the Sages. Then compound them by philosophical means and calcine them as many times with the water which the body had as to turn it white by its kindness.
I shall net die but, living, tell of the works of this, my master." Bernard of Treviso in his alchemical speculation emphasized the necessity of meditation upon the philosophical writings of the great adepts rather than chemical experimentation. In ordinary man, the spirit is figuratively absorbed by the body; but in the true philosopher, the spirit is so greatly increased in power that it absorbs into itself and is nourished by man's corporeal body.
The verse under the Queen continues the alchemical processes, describing the method in which the exudations from the substance should be preserved.
Secular educators teach our youth to scoff at the Bible record of these great truths and substitute evolution and other man-made, false teachings for the plain, simple facts of God's Holy Word. Pleasure-mad Americans waste billions of hours in front of the TV set in direct fulfillment of 2 Timothy 3:4. The wisest statesmen of our time are concerned for the survival of civilization because crime sweeps forward seemingly beyond control. People who know what the Bible says about the second coming will not be led astray by Satan.
Originally, the cipher messages were concealed only in the italicized words, sentences, or paragraphs, because the italic letters, being more ornate than the Roman letters, offered greater opportunity for concealing the slight but necessary variations. The word biliteral is derived from the fact that all letters of the alphabet may be reduced to either a or b. These minor differences disclose the presence of the two alphabets employed in writing the sentence.
Such cryptograms are not obvious, and must be decoded with the aid of an arbitrary measuring scale, the length of the lines determining the letter or word concealed. Page 289 is correctly numbered and has no unusual features, but page 89 of the Histories is missing. The pennants upon the notes may conceal the cipher, or the actual sounds of the notes may be exchanged for syllables of similar sound. Other authorities declare the table of frequency to be: E, T, A, O, N, I, R, S, H, D, L, C, W, U, M, F, Y, G, P, B, V, K, X, Q, J, Z. Because they furnish an economical and efficient method of transmitting confidential information, the use of such codes is far more prevalent than the average person has any suspicion. Every student of symbolism and philosophy, therefore, should be reasonably well acquainted with the underlying principles of cryptography; in addition to serving him well in his researches, this art furnishes a fascinating method of developing the acuteness of the mental faculties.
Those who have glimpsed the greater realities of being realize that the fundamental verities of life find at best only imperfect expression through physical symbols. About the tree on the left with its attendant eyes are the words: "Turn away your eyes to [from?] the fire. The tree is a symbol of the growth of the sacred metals, for the alchemists affirmed that the metals are like plants and grow in the rocks, spreading their branches (veins) through the interstices. The three powers of the Philosopher's Stone are symbolized by the heads of the cherubs in the circle in the upper left corner. This figure is the world, which must be headless, since its spiritual and rational part is not material and consequently, is invisible. It does not take place at a man's death, nor is it figurative--to be manifested by better world conditions. A recent poll discovered that only two percent of American student ministers believe in the literal second coming of Christ.
Sometimes the letters vary a trifle in size; at other times in thickness or in their ornamental flourishes. The shape and proportion of a building, the height of a tower, the number of bars in a window, the folds of a man's garments--even the proportions or attitude of the human body--were used to conceal definite figures or characters which could be exchanged for letters or words by a person acquainted with the code. By merely counting the number of times each character appears in the message, the law of recurrence discloses the English letter for which the arbitrary character stands.
Discrimination and observation are indispensable to the seeker after knowledge, and no study is equal to cryptography as a means of stimulating these powers.
Only those who have passed through the travail of spiritual birth can adequately comprehend and properly reverence the pathetic efforts to portray for others that knowledge necessarily locked within the heart of the one who knows.
Under his feet appears a quotation from this celebrated alchemist, beginning with the question, "What is the Philosopher's Stone?" After declaring it to be a reddish, fixed mercury, Lully swears to the Almighty that he has told the truth and that it is not permissible to say more. When earth is whitened with water and made of uniform color and appearance, it is called birth and the King is born out of fire." The text at lower right was deliberately mutilated to conceal a too evident secret. Out of the stars come the rains." The lower left panel continues the alchemical process, ending with admonition to renounce the misery of worldly existence.
His part is to work the mighty miracle within me that changes my life and prepares me for His second coming.
Later, Lord Bacon is believed to have had two Roman alphabets specially prepared in which the differences were so trivial that it is almost impossible for experts to distinguish them. In order to demonstrate the working of this cipher, the message concealed within the words "Wisdom and understanding are more to be desired than riches" will now be deciphered. According to the simple numerical cipher, the sum 138 is equal to the words Note carefully.
Further help is also rendered by the fact that if the cryptogram be split up into words there are only three single letters which may form words: A, I, O. Above is a prayer to the Virgin Mary which opens thus: "Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord be with thee. Directly under the King's head is a vase of flowers, in which rises the golden plant of the Philosophers. The second coming will be a literal, worldwide, visible, personal appearance of Christ in the clouds to bring this world to an end and to reward or punish all men and women.
Divorce rates are climbing wildly, with nearly one marriage in two ending in the divorce court.
Perfect, holy, happy beings, restored once again to the perfect image of God, will at last be at home in a sinless, spotless world as God originally planned.
Therefore in a book using this method, line 138, page 138, or paragraph 138 may contain the concealed message. An examination of them might reveal musical cryptograms, for it is quite certain that Lord Bacon was well acquainted with the manner of their construction. Thus any single character set off from the rest of the text must be one of these three letters. At the bottom of the page is additional alchemical equipment, this also being termed a Hermetic Seal. The current immoral generation--with its obsession with sex and filth, with its increasing church membership but decreasing true spirituality--is plain and positive fulfillment of God's Word. Fulfillment: This prophecy points primarily to the long period of tribulation that took place during the Dark Ages and was instigated by the apostate church.
In addition to this simple numerical cipher there are scores of others so complicated that no one without the key can hope to solve them. For a real shock, see how many of the last-day sins listed in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 you can find depicted in any issue of your Sunday newspaper.
That's why Luke 17:37 speaks of the bodies of the wicked and mentions the eagles (or vultures) gathered around them. Nothing short of the coming of the Lord will stem the tide of evil that is now engulfing the world. Candles were lighted in many houses; the birds were silent and disappeared, and the fowls retired to roost.
