Everyone knows what the Statue of Liberty is, but how many know it’s true history and symbolism? A little investigation will reveal who was REALLY behind the Statue of Liberty, and it’s relationship to idol worship and Nimrod.
The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World on it’s occultic shaped base (http://www.cr.nps.gov/history/online_books/hh/11/hh11a.htm)
According to the United States Government’s website for the statue (http://www.cr.nps.gov/history/online_books/hh/11/hh11toc.htm), the statue was a “gift” from the people of France to the people of the United States. However, research will show it was a Freemason idea, executed by FreeMasons, and dedicated with heavy Masonic rituals.
From the US website: (http://www.cr.nps.gov/history/online_books/hh/11/hh11toc.htm):
“AT A DINNER at the home of Edouard de Laboulaye, near Versailles, France, in the summer of 1865, was born the idea of presenting to the United States a monument…”
From “Masonicworld.com”, a site devoted to Freemasonry, in an article entitled “Masonry and the Statue of Liberty“:
“In the summer of 1865, a group of Frenchmen were gathered together one evening at the home of the well-known author, Edouard Rene de Laboulaye, in the village of Glavingny, a suburb of Paris. Among those present were Oscar and Edmond de Lafayette, grandsons of the Marquis d’ Lafayette, Masonic brother of George Washington; Henri Martin, the noted historian and French Mason; and a young artist from Colmar in French (later German) Alsace by the name of Frederic Auguste Bartholdi”
Note that there were prominent FreeMason’s at this first meeting, not of public, but of private origin’s, on the idea of a statue.
Next, the official U.S. site states that the sculptor Bartholdi travelled to the U.S. but does not mention how he was inspired to make the Statue in the form of a woman godess…
From the Masonic World article:
“Armed with letters of introduction and full of high hopes, Bartholdi sailed for America, although it is said that he did not have even a rough drawing of the proposed monument. Two weeks later, while standing on the deck of the ship Pereire steaming up Lower New York Bay, he caught a vision of a magnificent goddess holding aloft a torch in one hand and welcoming all visitors to the land of freedom and opportunity.
Continuing on, we learn from the official U.S. site that a “Franco-American Union” was established in France to raise money for the statue. However, from the Masonic World article:
“Under the leadership of Henri Martin (a prominent freemason), and inspired perhaps by the fact that so many of the sponsors of the Franco-American Union were members of the Masonic Fraternity, a campaign netting one million francs was completed by 1880.”
Note also, that the Mason’s were given a private viewing of the completed Statue before it’s trip to the United States n the summer of 1884:
“Around this time, Bartholdi, who was a member of Lodge Alsace Lorraine in Paris, which was composed of intellectuals, writers and government representatives, invited his brothers to view his masterpiece prior to its leaving their native land for America. It is also reported that in November of that year, he delivered a lecture and gave the Lodge a report on the history and various methods used in the creation of the statue. In 1887, after the statue was dedicated at its final resting place, Bartholdi told his Lodge brothers of the ardent welcome he had received in New York and of the wide enthusiasm created by his work.”
In the United States, plans were made for the Mason’s to perform a ritual in the laying of the cornerstone of the pedestal, on which the Statue would stand:
From the U.S. Official Site:
“The cornerstone of the pedestal was laid by William A. Brodie, Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of New York State, with impressive Masonic ceremony on August 5, 1884.”
“in America plans were being made for the laying of the cornerstone of the pedestal. Chairman William M. Evarts of the American Committee contacted the Grand
Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the State of New York, and requested a Masonic ceremony “appropriate to the occasion.”
It had been a tradition in America to have the cornerstone of major public and private buildings and monuments consecrated with full Masonic rites, ever since President George Washington (Himself a freemason), on September 18, 1793, had personally laid the cornerstone of the United States Capital, with the assistance of the Grand Lodge of Maryland. Similarly, the cornerstone of the Washington Monument was laid in a Masonic ceremony…delegating the laying of the cornerstone to the Masonic Fraternity was a fitting tribute…”
“By traditional ceremony, the cornerstone was then tested and being found, square, level and plumb, the Deputy Grand Master completed the work by applying the mortar and by having the stone lowered firmly into place. The Grand Master then struck three blows with the gavel and declared the stone duly laid. The elements of consecration, corn, wine and oil, were next presented by R. .W. . Brothers Lawrence, Vrooman and Ten Eyck.”
On the dedication of the completed Statue of Liberty (From Masonry and the Statue of Liberty):
“Dedication Day, October 28, 1886, was declared a holiday in New York City. Charles P. Stone, Grand Marshal, led the 20,000 paraders, including many Masonic Lodges, from 57th Street past President Crover Cleveland’s reviewing stand at Madison Square Park. [Masonic] Brother Henry C. Potter, Episcopal Bishop of
New York, gave the Invocation”
“The main speaker was Chauncey M. Depew, United States Senator, railroad president, one of the most famous orators in American history, and an active member of Kane Lodge 454, having been raised in 1885.”
Finally, in it’s appearance and styling, we can see the symbol of Semeramis, Nimrod’s consort and later deified godess, who became the Jezebel and Ishtar, Ashteroth, Venus, Diana, and all other godesses of the ancient world. For more information on this, see the post “Nimrod Part 14: Nimrod, Semisari, and the Catholic Church as the Babylonian Mystery Religion“, and “Nimrod Part 13: Semiramis and the Catholic Church”
A commemorative coin from the Catholic Church, showing a “Statue of Liberty” emblem of the church, with the saying “The Whole World is her Seat” – note the same solar (sun) rays emanating from her head as the statue of Liberty.
That the statue was of Freemason origin, design, and construction can be no doubt. That she is a solar (sun) “godess” can be no doubt. That she is the symbolized deification of Semiramis/Jezebel spirit spoken of in the Book of Revelations can be no doubt.
A symbol of liberty and freedom, is in actuallity, a symbol of Freemason’s core belief, which you should want to find out more about…
