IN the year 1901 I wrote, in the assumed name
of A. Cowan, a book called The X-Rays in Freemasonry
(Effingham Wilson). In that book I
ventured to suggest that the foreign Jews, who
are the prime movers of Anti-Catholic-Freemasonry,
would, in the long run, reinhabit Jerusalem and rebuild
the Temple, and that Antichrist, from the tribe of
Dan, would appear amongst them at the end of the
world. This idea, taken in the main from the Antichrist
legend then current, was so ridiculed by certain
reviewers in the Press, that I was forced to examine
my ground for this statement, and so I turned to the
critical study of the Antichrist legend in which I was
a firm believer at that time. __________
I found that “Antichrist” was based chiefly upon the Apocalypse of St. John, and that there were so many and various and contradiftory interpretations of the Apocalyptic-Antichrist that the story certainly lacked that unity which is considered one of the chief indications of truth. It so happened, moreover, that in the last half of the nineteenth century, the exegesis of the Apocalypse had advanced by long strides, and that the new light thrown upon it had shown that the Book gave no support at all to the theory of Antichrist coming at the end of the world.
Here in these pages is a deep rendition of how history has painted the coming Antichrist along with insite from the spirits that be.
This book was written in 1917 and its predictions have been astonishly accurate. What is next?
