“Now there are many passages in the Bible which prove on their face, exoterically, that this belief was at one time universal; and the most convincing of the two chapters, Ezekiel 28 and Isaiah 14.
Christian theologians are welcome to interpret both as referring to the Great War before Creation, the Epos of Satan’s rebellion, etc., if they so choose, but the absurdity of the idea is too apparent.
Ezekiel addresses his lamentations and reproofs to the King of Tyre; Isaiah – to King Ahaz, who indulged in the worship of idols, as did the rest of the nation, with exception of a few Initiates (the Prophets so called), who tried to arrest it on its way to exotericism, or idolatry, which is the same thing.
Let the student judge.
The origin of the “prince of Tyrus” [in Ezekiel 28:2-8] is to be traced to, and sought in the “divine Dynasties” of the iniquitous Atlanteans, the Great Sorcerers.
Bear in mind, that almost every ancient King and priest was an initiate; that from toward the close of the Fourth Race there had been a feud between the Initiates of the Right and those of the Left Path.
If one bears all this in mind and compares the various accounts, then one will find out that the whole of chapters 28 and 31 of Ezekiel relate neither to Babylon, Assyria, nor yet Egypt, since none of these have been so destroyed, but simply fell into the ruins on the surface, not beneath the earth – but indeed to Atlantis and most of its nations.
And he will see that the “garden of Eden” of the Initiates was no myth, but a locality now submerged.
Light will dawn upon him, and he will appreciate such sentences as these are their true esoteric value: “Thou hast been in Eden;…thou was upon the holy mountain of God” [Ezekiel 28:13-14] – for every nation had and many still have holy mountains: some, Himalayan Peaks, others, Parnassus, and Sinai.
They were all places of initiations and the abodes of the chiefs of the communities of ancient and even modern adepts.”
