The All-Seeing Eye

(Gen 3:5) "For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil."

In ancient and mythological tales (e.g., the epic of Gilgamesh), becoming like the gods was viewed in terms of becoming immortal. However, in biblical accounts it is understood in terms of wisdom.  (IVP Bible Background Commentary: Genesis-Deuteronomy)

John Daniel, in Scarlet and the Beast writes:

The Serpent promised Adam and Eve that their eyes would "be opened" (Genesis 3:5) if they ate of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The key word in this passage is eyes, which in Hebrew can be translated "knowledge." Opened can be translated "broadened." What the Serpent promised Adam and Eve was that their knowledge would be broadened if they ate of the forbidden fruit. But the most foreboding aspect of this Scripture emerges from the fact that the Hebrew word for "eyes" is not plural, but singular. What the Serpent actually told Adam and Eve was that their "eye" would be broadened by knowledge. The "eye" that Scripture wants us to consider is not the physical organ of sight, but the eye of the mind or soul. This singular "eye" is called the "third eye" of clairvoyance in the Hindu religion, the eye of Osiris in Egypt, and the All-Seeing Eye in Freemasonry. (John Daniel, Scarlet and the Beast, Vol. III, pp. 6-7, (c)1995)

"The earliest known history of the All-Seeing Eye dates back to ancient Babylon. It was worshiped as the Solar Eye -- a picture of the sun god. It was also represented as the eye of Jove or Jupiter. It has been called the eye of Phoebus or Apollo. It was also referred to as the eye of Baal, and as the eye of providence." (Church, J.R. Guardians of the Grail, (c)1989, pp. 148-149)

The Eye is most distinct in Egypt however where the right eye is called the Eye of Re, which symbolizes the sun. The left eye is referred to as the Eye of Thoth, symbolizing the moon. Both eyes together depict the Two Eyes of Horus the Elder.

In his pagan book Historical Deception, Moustafa Gadalla describes their sun god:

Re personifies the primeval, cosmic, creative force. He is the solar principle responsible for all creation.

The physical eye is to man what the sun is to Re. The eye is the part of the body able to perceive the light, and is therefore a symbol for the spiritual ability. This is equated to the Gospels, "those with eyes to see." (p. 45)

Interestingly, Gadalla also equates Re with the "Light" seen in many near-death experiences, as seen in this description of one:

"As I reached the source of the Light, I could see in. I cannot begin to describe in human terms the feelings I had over what I saw. It was a giant infinite world of calm, and love, and energy, and beauty. It was as though human life was unimportant compared to this. And yet it urged the importance of life at the same time it solicited death as a means to a different and better life. It was all being, all beauty, all meaning for all existence. It was all the energy of the Universe forever in one place." (p. 46)

According to Gadalla there are about 75 different forms of Re. Osiris would be one such form. He is referred to as the "holy spirit" of Re and therefore carries the same attributes of the sun god. "Osiris carried the living seed of eternity (Horus) within him. As such, Osiris represents the mortal man carrying within himself the capacity and power of spiritual salvation." (Gadalla, p. 53)

Osiris came to earth for the benefit of mankind with the title of "manifester of good and truth." Having died and then was resurrected, he is said now to be the judge of the dead. According to Gadalla, "the dead person in death is Osiris." (p. 53)   J.R. Church explains that the idea of Osiris is equivalent to the Christian's idea of hell. (p. 150)

The names Re, Osiris, Isis, and Horus are all related and sometimes it gets a little confusing since you may see the symbolic "eye" referred to as the "eye of Horus" or the "eye of Osiris" or the "eye of Re." A condensed version of the legend will show however that they are related and basically refer to the same pagan deity, the sun god:

The Sun-god Osiris and his consort, Isis, together with Re-Atum, the "Father of the Gods," were regarded by the ancient Egyptians as the supreme rulers of a Golden Age of plenty called Zep Tepi or the "First Time." Their kingdom ended abruptly when Osiris was murdered by his evil brother, Seth or Typhon. The childless Isis searched for the dismembered body of Osiris, which she then reassembled and resuscitated long enough to conceive a son named Horus. Horus was believed to be the reincarnation of Osiris, and the new husband of Isis, whose destiny it was to repossess the Kingdom of Osiris from the control of Seth. (Cosmic Christmas by Barb Aho,

"The Egyptians used the eye as a funerary amulet for protection against evil and rebirth in the underworld, and decorated mummies, coffins, and tombs with it. The Book of the Dead instructs that funerary eye amulets be made out of lapis lazuli or a stone called mak. Some were gold-plated.

"Worn as jewelry fashioned of gold, silver, lapis, wood, porcelain, or carnelian, the eye served to ensure safety, protect health, and give the wearer wisdom and prosperity. It was called [Horus] the 'all-seeing Eye.' Other attributes associated with it are terror and wrath. According to some myths, the eye took on a personality of its own, swooping down out of the sky to right wrongs..."

From our file "Forehead and Hand"

Quoting from Mystery Mark of the New Age, by Texe Marrs:

"The Hindu gurus so prominent in the New Age first brought into America and the West the belief that each person has a hidden, third eye located in the middle of the forehead just above the central point where the eyebrows meet. The Greek myth of the one-eyed Cyclops creature was an ancient variation of this teaching, but the real foundation of the third eye doctrine is in the Egyptian Mystery Religion of the Goddess.

"The Egyptian priesthood taught first that Maat, the Goddess of truth and judgment, possessed a third eye. Later the central text of the Egyptian Mystery Religion was revised and a male god, Horus, son of the Goddess, was given the all-seeing eye. It is the mysterious all-seeing eye of Horus that is pictured inside the capstone of the pyramid found on the US dollar bill.

"In today's New Age and Hindu philosophies, the body is made up of certain energy points or chakras. Two important chakras are the one in the forehead and the other in the palm of the right hand...[these] body chakra points are considered initiation sites, with the individual receiving additional psychic and other godlike powers as each energy point on his body is 'opened up' to allow the flow of energy from the universal force field.

"New Age teachers call the forehead chakra the third eye, or the Ajna Center. This energy point on the forehead is thought to be the 'passport to higher consciousness,' or godhood, for a person. The Ajna Center is also said to be the site of the 'sacred fire.' Today's Hindu monks, swamis, gurus, and spiritual seekers literally mark themselves over the forehead with a bit of red, yellow, or white powder or paste on this center as a sign."

The Pyramid

The Illuminati, founded by Weishaupt in 1776, adopted as their Seal "a 13-layered unfinished pyramid with the capstone missing. Hovering above is a sun-rayed triangle, as if waiting to be lowered to complete the structure. In mystery religions the triangle symbolizes power, such as a throne or kingdom, and is sometimes pictured as a horn. The triangle is also a symbol of the dwelling place of the pagan higher power, representing a mountain top in hilly country, a pyramid in Egypt, or a ziggurat in Mesopotamia. The ancients called the ziggurat Hill of Heaven, or Mountain of God." (Daniel, Vol. I,  p. 163)

In the Bible, these pagan sites of worship were referred to as "high places":

(Lev 26:30) "And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you."

(Eph 6:12) "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

Weishaupt also placed in the center of this hovering triangle a man's eye. The eye represents the Illuminati's own spying system. The eye also represents the Priory of Sion, who also adopted the symbol from the Egyptians (the All-Seeing Eye of Horus), with the triangle representing the power of the Merovingian thrones. The unfinished pyramid with 13 steps represents the work assigned to the Knights Templar. According to the author of Scarlet and the Beast, the symbolism suggests that "the Templars have been given the task of building a world government under the watchful eye of the Priory of Sion. When Sion, protector of the Merovingian thrones, lowers the sun-rayed Merovingian capstone in place, the world government will be complete." (Daniel, p. 164)

From Texe Marrs' website:

"Egypt plans to crown the Great Pyramid," said the headline in the Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper (November 22, 1998). "It has long been missing its stone top. A millennium ceremony will highlight the installation." The newspaper article, datelined Cairo, Egypt, and written by Vijay Joshi of the Associated Press, went on to explain: "For ages the Great Pyramid has been without its apex, the pointy stone top that completes its triangular shape. Now Egypt plans to make the pharaoric structure whole again by affixing a gold-encased capstone--if only for one night--to celebrate the advent of the third millennium on December 31, 1999, says the pyramid's custodian, Zahi Hawass."

I can verify the above news article mentioned. I cannot verify all of what Mr. Marrs says further:

...the creme of the Illuminati, the men of the Inner Circle, will be conducting a black mass inside the King's chamber. The grotesque ceremony, these men believe, will culminate in a visit by their glowing Masonic god of light and magic, Lucifer himself, at exactly the stroke of midnight, December 31, 1999. To insure the comfort of the congregating VIPs, custodian Hawass has installed a new ventilation system for the cramped room and a new lighting system for the once dark passageways that lead to it. To accomplish this renovation work, Hawass temporarily closed the pyramid's interior beginning in 1998 for almost a year and only opened it again this February. (Texe Marrs,

Zahi Hawass is the Great Pyramid's Director of Egyptian Antiquities at Giza. Yes, a new ventilation system was installed, but according to Hawass it is to prevent salt build-up and thus subsequent damage to the walls of the Pyramid. Nevertheless, the placing of the capstone on the Pyramid on the night of December 31, 1999 is rather interesting in light of the symbolism mentioned above.

Television Networks Association with the All-Seeing Eye

"...the logos for each of the three television networks are Masonic symbols. For example, NBC displays the peacock with its tail feathers full of All-Seeing Eyes. In Hinduism... 'when the god Indra transforms himself into an animal, he becomes a peacock. In India the peacock was believed to have a thousand eyes in its feathers... In Java, the peacock was associated with the Devil. In Mosul in northern Iraq, there is a sect of Yezidis who hold that the Devil is not evil, and call him the Peacock Angel.'

"NBC could not have chosen a better symbol to represent its anti-Christian world-view than the All-Seeing Eye peacock. ABC is more subtle by symbolizing itself in the sun-disk, which is just another form of the All-Seeing Eye. CBS is more blatant. Its logo is the Masonic All-Seeing Eye, and it daily features on its evening newscast a segment titled 'Eye on America,' using its logo for the word 'eye.' Recently CBS has included a subliminal triangle rotating around the eye. The triangle and eye come on the screen at program breaks just before commercials, with the following voice-over, 'This...[pause] CBS.' The triangle rotates quickly, then shatters into a rainbow of sun rays. It looks identical to the sun-rayed Illuminati capstone and eye hovering over the unfinished pyramid, featured on the back of our $1 bill."   (Daniel, Vol. I, pp. 278-9)

Eyes Like the Eyes of a Man

Earlier we noted that in the mystery religions the triangle represents power such as a throne or kingdom and is sometimes pictured as a horn. This brings to mind the following verse from the book of Daniel:

(Dan 7:8) "I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things."

Looking at Strong's definitions for the word "horn" we see that it can also mean the peak of a mountain or a ray of light, and figuratively it means power.

7162. qeren, (Chald.), keh'-ren; corresp. to H7161; a horn (lit. or for sound):--horn, cornet.

7161. qeren, keh'-ren; from H7160; a horn (as projecting); by impl. a flask, cornet; by resembl. an elephant's tooth (i.e. ivory), a corner (of the altar), a peak (of a mountain), a ray (of light); fig. power:-- X hill, horn.

Noting these definitions, the symbolism in the Great Seal of the United States depicting the All-Seeing Eye inside a pyramid surrounded by a sunburst of light is certainly interesting.
