Honoring The Knights Templar – Friday, October 13th, 1307 – Friday October13, 2017

On Friday, October 13th, 1307, King Philip IV of France, in league with Pope Clement V ordered all Templars to be rounded up and thrown in prison. The Knights were accused of numerous crimes including heresy and treason. For two hundred years the Knights Templar had been the most dominant force in Christendom.

In 2007 the Vatican issued a proclamation declaring the Templars innocent of their alleged crimes. This after finding “misplaced” documents of their trials. How different our world would be if this act had not been perpetrated against the Templars, the defenders of Christ. It is worthy of us to to honor them each October. May they rise again.

Come, my brethren! Take courage and stand beneath our banner! The darkness closes in, and we are the only true defenders of the Light! March to victory and arise triumphant!

The enemy is at the gate, they lay siege to our walls, yet no one answers the call to arms!! Where are the Knights, why are they not suited up for the great battle? Are they asleep? Who will slay this beast if not the Templars? The angels are sounding the trumpets, are the sounds of them muffled? This enemy is familiar, we have fought them before, in histories past, come brethren, take up your cross, and fight for God, and the Saints, the beast has reared his ugly head once again!!

Philip IV borrowed enormous sums of money to finance a war with England. A poor king and an even worse military commander, Philip was easily defeated. He saw a way of eliminating his huge debt. On that fateful day of Friday, October 13, 1307 he ordered all Templars arrested and their property seized. The Grandmaster of the order, Jacques DeMolay was thrown in prison along with several other high-ranking members of the order.

Their ‘trial’ was a farce. The Templars were charged with heresy, worshiping false idols and other crimes against the church. Many of them were tortured until they ‘confessed’ to their crimes. Refusing to capitulate, Jacques DeMolay would not confess and Philip ordered him burned at the stak

    A bit more to it. The pope of France, there were two popes then, wanted the Templars’ money, because the pope was wicked and spent on wine and women, just as his pal the king did. The Templars refused. That led to the scheme to arrest them.
    The pope came up with the scheme where he publicly announced that he, was God’s emissary on earth and could do anything and not be punished. To prove his power and authority from God, he was going to put to death, fifty righteous men. They were Templars. They fifty were tortured and put to death. The pope and king died within one year.
    The teaching in Freemasonry, is that on any Friday the 13th, and especially in October, a 13th on Friday, you genuflect or put a knee to the ground, and make the sign of the Cross, not to bless yourself, but in memory of the Fifty Righteous Men. Some, will simply take a seat and make the sign of the Cross. It will bring outstanding luck and fortune all the day long. A teaching in Freemasonry is that, he who controls the 13, the 13th letter of the alphabet, “M”, money, has power to rule. It is why churches even today are always after freemason money, and you will hear many proclaim, “you know what I could do with their money that they raise?”, it continues that freemasonry is attacked. Knights Templar are in the York Rite.

    I believe the enemy is at the gate…we Christians are constantly getting burned at the proverbial stake and plenty of wolves in sheep clothes, I might add. The good Lord knows who his soldiers are. We are too remain steadfast in our convictions and let no man tell us otherwise. Just my opinion, of course. Great post.
