Death Is A Rose

Islamic State (Isis) militants stepped up their attacks on the Syrian Kurdish city of Kobani on Friday in what some Kurdish activists described as a “possibly decisive moment in the battle”.

The Pentagon said the US-led coalition had conducted at least seven air sorties against Isis around Kobani in the five days to Wednesday, but there were no reports of any strikes on Thursday or Friday.

The hour is nigh. Behold the rider (ridder) on a pale horse who will overcome the world. He carries a black banner with a white rose on it. This Tarot card represents the plague that overcame Europe. Ebola came to America, and we were powerless to stop it.  Death approaches Kaboni. ISIS beheaded three Kurdish female fighters who wear rosy scarves as a symbol of their resistance. I adopted a rosy scarf as my banner when I beheld Neda dying before the whole world. Because I had died, I could look into her eyes and know, she was seeing the approach of God/Allah.

I am going to raise the Knights Templar and Teutonic Knights from the dead so that their spirits may come to Kobani to rescue the Warrior Maidens who are so awake, who have killed the butchers of women and children, and who beg for the world to come fight alongside them. I suspect there is politics here, because the Iraqis and Turks do not like the Kurds and fear arming them. I suspect America stopped bombing ISIS in hope the Kurds will lose and retreat into Turkey, who may send I ground forces. Don’t let politics destroy God/Allah’s Warriors!

Mt Stuttmeister ancestors were Teutonic Knights. This surname means ‘Horse Master’.  They ride to Rose Mountain. Win or lose this battle, they will not lose the war, for they have overcome the world. They bring death, they apply the Hand of God/Allah to His enemies. Their doors have been marked with the blood of the children they have slain. The Black Knight will take no prisoners. In the end, he will prevail!

I have watched my friends and family desert me, and I wonder, knowing how to see the future, and read prophecy.  Am I John, born yet again, to prepare ‘The Way’?

“Behold, an hour is coming, and has already come, for you to be scattered, each to his own home, and to leave Me alone; and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me. 33“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”

For every rose that is taken from this BRANCH, three will grow in its place. These roses will be as white as snow, and as bright as the Light of God/Allah who gazes upon his beloved champions, as they behold Him.

Jon the Nazarite

A Seer told me in 1987:

“You own your own creation – you died!”

What she meant, is, I beheld my conception by my parents, before I went to heaven and saw God.

My parents were playing cards in the sand, naked. I walked up to them as a child of three, looked down at the cards that were all face cards, and they were talking to me in foreign languages. They were my kindred, who were very distressed because they had been silenced in their lifetime. They were Evangelicals (father)and Huguenots (mother) They are buried next to one another in Berlin. Here lies the roses amongst the thorns. I part the veil,
and I behold the Lost Kingdom – and I give a command

“Arise from thy sleep, the true church of God!”

In this video we see the Stuttmeister tomb about 15 seconds into it. This name means ‘Master of the Horse’. Consider the pale horse and rider. Here the Templars and Teutonic Knights have come to rest.

Idris Nassan, Kobani’s deputy foreign affairs minister, said shelling on the city, near the Turkish border, had intensified since early morning.

“Isis stepped up attacks and shells Kobani from the east,” he said, adding that Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) were able to destroy a tank in a village 4km (2.5 miles) from the city, where a large black cloud of smoke visible was from the Turkish border.

“YPG fighters are still holding up the defence of Kobani for the moment”, Nassan told the Guardian. “And they will fight to the last drop of blood.”

The U.S. military said American warplanes conducted three air strikes against Islamic State militants in Syria near Kobani overnight and today, destroying an armed vehicle, an artillery piece and a tank.

U.S. and British warplanes also carried out five air strikes in neighbouring Iraq, knocking out two armed vehicles, a militant-occupied building and two fighting positions north-west of Mosul, the country’s second largest city, which fell to the Islamic State group in June.

One of the world’s most ancient Christian communities is about to vanish forever

Threatened by ISIS, Mosul’s Christians say goodbye.”

ISIS has been marking the doors of Christian sects with a N for “Nazarite”. I believe these are the Mandaeans who are Johanites, followers of John the Baptist, a Nazarite for Life. I was named after John and declared myself a Nazarite in 1988.

Whether you are religious are not, there is one fact that can not be disputed, being, the President of the United States of America came to the rescue of the Nazarites, and other religions sects, he getting us back into Iraq. How and why the most powerful and wealthiest nation on earth came to SAVE these unique people, will be examined in history books for a long time. I may be the world’s foremost authority on the Nazarites, and have made many prophetic posts on them. I have been called mad and deluded. I lost family and friends. I was punished, bid to stop my craziness. My grandson was taken from me. I gave the message God told me to give;

“Be not afraid. Spiritual Courage will be met with Spiritual Courage!”

If you have followed my blogs, you may have noticed I have moved a Knight across the genealogical domain and landscape I discovered when I asked; “What is in a name?”

Behold the ritter on a pale horse! Repent!

In Sintram and his Companions, Friedrich Baron de la Motte Fouque brings his hero Rolf “famous wolf” to encouter Death on the road. He also employs the famous family of Montfaucon, who begot the Ferrette, Rougemont, Habsburgs, several Knight Templars, and the Holy Shroud family.

Montfaucon lies fifty six miles from Rougemont. I am home!

I did not author this amazing story. I found it when I died. I was reborn in order to show you ‘The Rose of the World’……………..The Resurrected!

Consider Ezekiel and ‘The Valley of Dry Bones’.

In the high castle of Drontheim many knights sat assembled to hold council for the weal of the realm; and joyously they caroused together till midnight around the huge stone table in the vaulted hall. A rising storm drove the snow wildly against the rattling windows; all the oak doors groaned, the massive locks shook, the castle-clock slowly and heavily struck the hour of one. Then a boy, pale as death, with disordered hair and closed eyes, rushed into the hall, uttering a wild scream of terror. He stopped beside the richly carved seat of the mighty Biorn, clung to the glittering knight with both his hands, and shrieked in a piercing voice, “Knight and father! father and knight! Death and another are closely pursuing me!”

I just found the Abbey Bellevaux where the Lords of Rougemont, and the Bishops of Besançon are buried. The Rougemonts were Knights Templar and owners of the Shroud of Turin as were the Lords of La Roche. Pons La Roche was the founder of Bellevaux where very possibley my Rougemont ancestors are buried. Pons is close kindred of the De Bar and Habsburg family. Why would the Habsburg keep their connection to the Knights Templar and Shroud of Turin a secret? The Habsburgs were ‘defenders of the Catholic faith’.

I am going to make a pilgrimage to this Abbey Bellevaux and own the end of my book. I am looking for backers of my expedition. Who would like to go with?

The Lords of Rougemont and Ferrette also owned Florimont (mountain of flowers) castle where modern day (1785) Knights of Ferrette gathered, and a Raja M built a house dedicated to the troubadours. (1892) Are we looking at the first pseudo-history of the Templars?

Thibaud Rougemont was a co-fpunder of the Priory Marast.

Kurdish forces have in recent days evacuated several villages around the city, and more refugees crossed the border into Turkey.

According to local reports, Kurdish leaders in the border region have called on both sides to observe a ceasefire during the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, which starts on Saturday.

“Isis said that they would pray in Kobani on the first holiday of Eid”, said Özgür Amed, a Kurdish activist and journalist. “They have made such threats in the past. They will not be able to do that. The only prayer they will hold in Kobani is for their own funeral.”

According to local media, Isis took the strategically crucial Zorova Hill to the west of Kobani back from Kurdish YPG forces late on Thursday night. Sources in the Kurdish Democratic Union party, the political wing of the YPG, announced that fighters had retreated to the city to prepare for “guerrilla-style urban warfare”.

In Kobani itself, the mood appeared to be defiant. “Isis will never be able to take this city”, said Bahar, a resident speaking from the office of the defence minister, Ismet Hasan. “We are prepared to face them inside Kobani – if they enter, this city will become their grave.”

Bahar said the city was under heavy attack from all sides. “They fire missiles and rockets at the city, they use heavy weaponry to attack us here. But if they think they can take the city like this they are wrong; that’s a miscalculation.”

Bahar also said thousands of civilians were still in Kobani, contrary to some reports. “Many of these people don’t want to leave, but stay and defend their own land. Others came back from Turkey to fight.”

Many Kurds from Turkey have also joined the fight against Isis. According to the pro-Kurdish daily Özgür Gündem, at least 11 of 25 YPG fighters killed in the past 17 days had Turkish passports.

Nassan confirmed volunteers from Turkey had arrived in Kobani, but said many of them had little or no fighting experience. “Some have done their military service, but some have no experience at all,” said Nassan. “We need to train them first. The YPG does not take these volunteers to the frontlines, they help out with other means.”

Nassan also stressed there was no lack of fighters, but of weaponry and ammunition. “We need heavy weapons and more ammunition, we are running low, all we have is ammunition for light arms.”

Air strikes conducted by the US-led coalition have not slowed the Isis advance, and Nassan said strikes in Raqqa and Idlib had made matters worse. “Isis fighters from these provinces come to join the fight on Kobani; they run from there to come here. We need air strikes to help us.”

He urged the international community to step up both military and relief efforts to help Syrian Kurds. “We have no hospitals here anymore, and few medical supplies. We are running low on everything: food, water, milk for children.” Most of the supplies available were now coming via Turkey, he explained, often through Kurdish organisations. Injured people are being treated in Turkish hospitals.

Nassan warned that an Isis victory in Kobani would lead to atrocities: “Isis has been trying for a year to take Kobani and has always failed. They have suffered huge losses. If they manage to come here, they will rape and kill and slaughter.”

Isis’s advance to the Turkish border has piled pressure on Ankara to intervene. The prime minister, Ahmet Davutoğlu, said on Thursday that Turkey would do “whatever we can” to stop Kobani falling to Isis, as MPs voted for military action against the militants. The vote authorises cross-border raids and allows coalition forces to launch operations from Turkish territory.

However, Davutoğlu’s comments were in contrast to those of the Turkish defence minister, Ismet Yilmaz, who earlier said operations should not be expected immediately.

The Pentagon said the US-led coalition had conducted at least seven air sorties against Isis around Kobani in the five days to Wednesday, but there were no reports of any strikes on Thursday or Friday.

  1. The basic theme of the card is Death. However, Waite says in The Pictorial Key that it is “more fitly represented…by one of the apocalyptic visions than by the crude notion of the Reaping Skeleton.” He is possibly referring to Revelation 6:8, “another horse appeared, deadly pale, and its rider was called Plague.” The death theme explains the black color of armor and banner and the four figures: temporal and spiritual, male and female, old and young – death comes to everyone.

  2. Atop the cliff in the background we see a path, towers, and a sun that silhouettes a city, i.e., the mystical journey to the New Jerusalem. Notice the similarities to the imagery on the Temperance card. In Renaissance art, the “new earth” (i.e. following the apocalypse) is typically represented as a city, the New Jerusalem. This representation appears on 15th-16th century World cards.

    In The Pictorial Key, Waite says: “Behind it lies the whole world of ascent in the spirit…between two pillars on the …horizon there shines the sun of immortality.” The image of the rising sun may come from the Golden Dawn Consecration ceremony for the Vault.

    Regardie p 264f: “I have passed through the gates of Darkness unto Light. I have fought upon Earth for good. I have finished my work. I have entered into the invisible. I am the Sun in his rising…the Opener of the day…I am the Lord of Life, triumphant over Death…I am the preparer of the Pathway, the Rescuer unto the Light! Out of the Darkness, let the Light arise.” This is essentially a Rosicrucian image of the mystical journey and notice the roses on the bishop’s cloak, the woman’s hair and the banner.

  1. Into the cloth of Rosicrucianism, Waite weaves the Knights Templar, Alchemy, Kabballah, Levi, Papus, Masonry, and the Golden Dawn. The three founders of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn were members of the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia. The Higher or Inner Order of the Golden Dawn was known as Rosae Rubeae et Aureae Crucis. When the Golden Dawn broke up and Waite formed his own version of the society, he called it the Fellowship of the Rosy Cross.

    The rose is not a symbol commonly associated with the Templars; however, on the Gothic Cathedrals that they helped to design, there was a large rosette over the ogive archway. In the Adeptus Minor initiation of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the initiate is introduced to the “Vault of the Adept.” This is a reconstruction of the tomb in which the mythical Christian Rosenkreutz was buried for 120 years, and from which he arose. On the ceiling of the “Vault” was a stylized white rose (same sort of rose as seen on the Death card but with 22 petals). It would be the first thing seen when the lid was removed from the coffin and the resurrected mystic opened his eyes. So its presence on the Death card may symbolize a note of optimism – there is a rebirth following the Death represented here. Waite may be suggesting that this is not the Death that comes at the end of life, but the Mystical Death.

  1. Directly below the ‘Viking Ship’ there is a black object that looks like an upside-down letter F. It’s a stretch, but this could be the Enochian letter Drun. The Golden Dawn assigned the Death card to Hebrew Nun = English N = Enochian Drun. The Enochian alphabet can be found on page 652 of Regardie: The Golden Dawn.

  2. There appears to be a cave entrance in the background cliff – right above the ship. There also appears to be an arrow on that hillside, pointing to the cave. The arrow may be mistaken for a spur on the riders heel, except there is a gap between the arrow and the heel and it is not actually attached.
