See Any Similarities?

Mar 17, 2014 by



I’ve often stated that the early writings of the Watchtower were rife with occult overtones and philosophies.

I happened to see the cover of the Metaphysical Bible Dictionary and the similarity was so striking that I felt compelled to post this up against the standard cover of the Studies In The Scriptures by Charles Taze Russell, the founder of the Jehovah’s Witnesses.

As you can see, the Egyptian symbol of the sun god Ra are emblazoned on the covers of each.

This is also the symbol of the modern day Rosicrucian order.

If you want to see more of the occult connection between the writings and teachings of the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society and other “mystery schools” and “esoteric orders” then check out this link to an article I wrote several years ago.

Jehovah’s Witnesses, Russell, and the Occult Connection

It will amaze and horrify you when you read what is now public information on the interesting history of Charles Taze Russell and the mysterious symbols, odd beliefs and teachings of the founder of the modern day Jehovah’s Witnesses!

    I just read your article on Russel’s involvement with pyramidology, Charles Piazzi Smyth and Sir Issac Newton.

    I just watched a program explaining Architect Jean-Pierre Houdin’s theory on how the great pyramid was built and the spiraling passageways and grand gallery’s main purpose was construction. The Egyptians dragged the heavy blocks on wooden sleds and built it from the inside. Incredibly genius, if you have the chance look it up!

    I see that the Jehovah’s Witness scrapped the idea of pyramidology after Russell’s death but it’s absolutely fascinating the way that all this branches out. If you go back to Rosicrucianism and it’s philosophies taken from the Hermetic orders you immediately get to the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and by extension Mr Occult Himself, Aleister Crowley, who also like Russell stated that the world was changing and entering a new chapter. Aleister Crowley believed that a messenger of Horus spoke to him telling him that this change into people living with their true will would happen and in your article about Charles Taze Russell used a symbol for Ra in his book saying the last days were coming and even (wrongly) predicting the dates with pyramidology. Horus is the god of the sky traditionally but later on is merged with Ra the sun god into one being who rules the earth, sky, and the underworld as well.

    Knowing that Jehovah’s Witness comes from the same roots as Crowley’s left hand path Thelema religion definitely puts things in perspective. Even in denying pyramidology where can you draw the line on what is really truth and what isn’t when anything could have been tainted with those kinds of ideals? Clearly he got the pyramid thing wrong so what else did he get wrong?

    Also they say Russell was the founder of the Jehovah’s Witnesses but branching off from the original Bible Students group there are three “schisms” according to wikipedia at least, I don’t pretend to be an expert on this, but Jehovah’s Witnesses are the newest of the group of three others, Laymen’s Home Missionary Movement, Associated Bible Students, and Free Bible Students. All only about 100 years old. That’s really young for a religion. And between the bible playing telephone by mouth and with translation to translation and different interpretations I don’t see how they could have gotten it more right 100 years ago than the Romans in the year 300. Only 300 years after Christ and not almost 2000. If there is so much to disagree on that it split into four separate entities that doesn’t seem like very good odds that it’s The Truth.

    Very interesting. Lots of conflicting information, too. It’s so easy to see what you want to see and make others see the same.

  2. A most interesting and highly intuitive observation Amanda. Sounds like you’ve done your homework. If you haven’t done so, read my story. You’ll find some interesting things there that might make you chuckle a little given your direct reference to the Golden Dawn.
