"Now the last age by Cumae’s Sibyl sung Has come and gone, and the majestic roll Of circling centuries begins anew: Justice returns, returns old Saturn’s reign, With a new breed of men sent down from heaven. Only do thou, at the boy’s birth in whom The iron shall cease, the golden race arise, Befriend him, chaste Lucina; ‘tis thine own Apollo reigns." Virgil’s Eclogue IV, line 5
With Tom Horn's revealing of the 36-cubed Magic Square’s numerology—111, 555, and 666, which binds the Bible in the base of the Washington Obelisk, the great time-line spoken by the Cumaean prophetess can be seen in relation to it. The great numeric secret of the mystery school concerned these numbers. For example: Since the magic square of the sun has 36 numbers arranged in 36 squares the number 72 is produced. 72 is quintessentially Pythagorian
. Pythagoras has been called the father of "symbolic Freemasonry". It is said that he would offer an apple to initiates of his school. Those considered worthy of further teaching would halve the apple at its equator revealing the organic pentagram within.
The 5 points of the pentagram, each 72 degrees apart produced a formula for the time-cycle spoken by the priestess of Apollo, known as the precession of the equinox.
5 times 72 equals 360. Further more, 360 times 72 equals 25,920... the exact number of years in one cycle of the precession.The duration of the precession was known by all of antiquity's illuminated elite. It was an important component of their religious infrastructure. In fact, the precession marked the destruction and re-birth of world civilizations, the most important of which was the first, before the flood of Noah. It was said that that the knowledge of civilization itself had been bestowed to man by gods that descended from heaven. The understanding of the precession was said to have come from the gods themselves.
For the Egyptians, the "Zep Tepi" (the first time) recounted this genesis of humanity from primitive wanderers to communities organized under the patronage of the gods. The heavenly markers of this event included the milky way and the two points in which the line that the planets traced across the sky (the ecliptic) cut across it. The ecliptic crosses the milky way at opposite sides, between Gemini and Taurus and between Sagittarius and Aquarius. This later crossing place is the most important. It is where the milky way galaxy's center lies. This center resembles a "serpent eating it's tail", an Ouroboros. In Hebrew cosmology, this symbol is "Leviathan" literally (Levi - tan, a connected serpent).
Sagittarius, the centaur, draws an arrow in his bow directly at the dividing point of Leviathan. The Greek word for arrow is obolus, meaning "pointed, arrow or pertaining to the shooting of arrows". This is the root origin for the word "Obelisk" translated by the Latins into sagitta.
Greek myth explains that the centaur Cheiron, the tutor of Hercules, had been taught archery by Apollo himself and the arrow (obelus) in Sagittarius' bow was a gift from Apollo.
From here the Washington Monument obelisk takes on advanced meaning. Not only is it the regenerative organ of Apollo, but it is also the time-marking arrow that points to the end of the Aions. It combines the prophecy of Apollo's priestess of when "the majestic roll Of circling centuries begins anew" with the identity of the god that will arise when that cycle ends. The sun's count of days is the natural clockwork for measuring time. It is the deity of the sun, Apollo whose return is timed by its rising and setting.
On December 21st, 2012, the sun will rise in the center of the milkyway where Leviathan bites its tail. The arrow of Apollo marks this time both in heaven and on earth at Washington DC.
Apollo as the 'sun god' has his magic square, the numbers 1 through 36 arranged in 6 rows of 6. Each row added together equals 111. All rows added together equal 666. Since this magic square is incorporated into the Washington monument "obelisk", the symbolism clearly indicates the intended incarnation of the sun god Apollo.
There is more time-based information in these numbers however. The precession occurs due to the slow rotation of the earth's celestial axis. This axis is 23.3 (mean average) from perpendicular to the earth's orbit around the sun.
If one takes the length of precession 25,920 divided by 23.3 the result is 1,111.
The magic square number (36 x 72)= 2,592 divided by 23.3 is 111... or the total of the numbers in each row of the square.
The name Apollyon in Greek equals 1461. This is the number of the sides of a square times the number of days in a solar year, 365.25 x 4.
The difference between the biblical year count (360 days) and the solar year count (365.25 days) in one cycle of precession 25,920 is 378 years.
378 x 2 = 756 (the length of one side of the Great Pyramid)
378 x 3 = 1135 (360 x 3.15 'PI rounded')
378 x 4 = 1512 ( the gematria of 'revelation' in Greek) The square root of 1512 is the exact latitude of the Washington Monument, 38.88 degrees north.
378 x 8 = 3024 (the perimeter of the Great Pyramid)
Apollo, like other Greek deities, had a number of epithets applied to him, chief among them Phoebus ("shining one"), which was very commonly used by both the Greeks and Romans in Apollo's role as the god of light and the sun. Apollo's most common attributes were the bow and arrow. As a god of archery, Apollo was known as Aphetoros ("god of the bow") A??-?????? Aeballon ("ever-shooting" and Argurotoxos ("with the silver bow"). The Romans referred to Apollo as Articenens ("carrying the bow") as well.
[size=150]The connection between obelisks, money and Apollo:[/size]
- Quote :
- The great Dionysiak myth 375-379 Robert Brown - 1877
Meteorites, fallen from heaven, were worshiped in antiquity as arrows from the sun god. As these were often composed of iron nickel they were fashioned into arrow points.
The first coinage was also of this type; All the ancient money consisted either of pieces of iron or bronze, which, from their arrow form, were called obeliskoi; whence we have still a quantity of small money called oboloi, six of which make a drachme or handful, that being as much as the hand can contain.'1 To the same effect writes the learned Isidoros, Bishop of Hispalis (Seville), A.D. 600-636 :—' The obol was made formerly like an arrow, whence also it received the name Obel (Arrow) from the Greeks.'2 Obolos and Obelos are only Ionik and Attik differences in pronunciation,8 and belos is a glance, an arrow, or their effect. Obeliskos, the diminutive, is any small pointed instrument. The obelisk, also known as obeliscie we elongated blocks of stone consecrated to the divinity of the Sun, Osiris, or Apollo.The blocks had this form given to them in resemblance to the rays of that luminary. These obols or obelisks ... represent the spears, rays, arrows, or golden-locks of the beaming sun; for, as Macrobius observes, ' Under the name of arrows the darting of the rays is shewn.'1 By the Nile, Euphrates and in Syria, monetary transactions were anciently conducted by weighing the metals employed. Barter appears to have sufficed for the earlier Phoenicians, chiefly engaged in traffic with barbarous peoples, and it was reserved for the Lydians to originate a regular coinage.2 Later the solar disk was substituted for the solar rays. The familiar circular form of coin was more transportable and was the last and highest development of the art.
Understanding that the first denomination of exchange was the obelisk, the origin of another extremely recognized name in the bible surfaces.
In Greek the name devil (diabolos) is spelled
[/size] meaning "opposing the cause of God, to act the part of the devil or to side with him" Strong's G1228. This is derived from diaball?, to throw or shoot over or across, to send over (from dia "through" and ballow "to hurl or throw")Strong's G1225
The Greek word for the monetary unit diobolus is spelled;
Diabolos and Diobolos are virtually the same etymological framework, connected to Apollo's arrows.
The Greeks believed that the Milky way was a passageway for souls to enter Hades.The gate for entering the next life was at the dividing point indicated by Cherion's obolus, pointed at the mouth of the connected serpent. In order to gain entry, the deceased had to provide two obolus that had been provided at their burial, placed over each eye.

This explains a great part of the mystery surrounding the mark of the beast and the number of his name. It is intimately connected with Apollyon and the creation of money itself. It also shows the time-based nature of the obelisk pointing out the dividing point of the connected serpent, where the dead pass into eternal life or eternal damnation. "Oh! what power the diobolus has the whole world through!""For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows". 1Ti 6:10
A couple more points I've discovered:
Revelation 9:11 provides the name of the angel of the abyss that releases a plague of locusts on the earth "Apollyon".
As a plague god Apollo was known as Parnopius ("locust"). The word locust appears in 9 chapters of the bible 11 times.
As Apollyon equals 1461 in Greek it is more than significant that the greatest symbol ever erected in his honor "the Washington monument" stands 555 feet high. It marks the ultimate point in the future when Apollo will rise to his most 'diabolical' height.
555 + 1461 = 2016
...and 1461 was the year of the end of the Holy Roman Empire.
The number 555 has particular meaning in the bible. It is found to equal:
"Discerning"... "The Rulers"... "The kingdoms of nations [Is 13.4]"
