Key Of Knowledge
Dr. Lee Warren Plim Report

Introduction

In all societies throughout history, knowledge has existed that was only available to a special few. Primarily, the priests initiated in the mysteries possessed the "key of knowledge." With this knowledge, the priesthood, along with the king, who answered to no one other than God, was able to exert great power within the kingdom. This is the way that most ancient cultures were structured, such as Babylon and Egypt to name a few. Priests and kings thought that the masses would profane this protected knowledge and it was too sacred to be given to them. The elite was the only ones in the culture in possession of this knowledge. The masses were generally taught traditions and half-truths and were never informed that there was a higher type of intelligence.

Manley P. Hall writes of the initiated that were taught the esoteric or spiritual principles while the masses received the literal or exoteric meanings. He states:"… the great truths of nature and the abstract principles of natural law, the vital forces of the universe were personified, becoming the gods and goddess of the ancient mythologies. While the ignorant multitudes brought their offerings to the altars …(deities representing the procreative energies), the wise recognized these marbled statues were only symbolic concretion of great abstract truth (Secret Teachings of the Ages)." In short, this shows that whomever has the "key of knowledge" has total control of power and a total monopoly of the masses. They have the power to shape and influence the minds of the public or brainwash them into believing anything they want.

Why was the Messiah angry with the priests?

The Messiah told the priests of Israel, who were the lawyers and teachers of Israel, that they had taken away the "key of knowledge" from the people. He said the following. "Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things (Luke 11:52-53):"

Many Christians fail to understand the "key of knowledge" that the Messiah is referring to in this scripture and they do not realize that keeping knowledge hidden from the masses is not unique to Israel.

Who else hid knowledge from the masses?

Many Christians may be shocked to discover that the Roman Catholic Church is based on the ancient Babylonian mysteries. The symbolism of the Pope of Rome’s title and the two keys on his insignia, which reveal that he is the head of the mysteries, will be discussed later.

Today in all parts of the world there are many secret societies, such as the Freemasons, Rosicrucians, Knights Templar, etc., that also claim to have the key to knowledge to many things. These groups have shaped the world’s political and economic scene more than history reveals.

The reader should understand that the "key of knowledge" was always in the hands of a few initiated priests, which eventually became corrupt and used the information for selfish means. This priestly group’s purpose for acquiring knowledge differs from other religious teachers such as Buddha. Nesta Webster in the book Secret Societies states the following about how these two groups differ. "For whilst religious leaders such as Buddha and Mohammed sought for divine knowledge in order that they might impart it to the world, the Initiates believed that sacred mysteries should not be revealed to the profane but should remain exclusively in their own keeping."

What is the intent of this article?

Our primary focus is to examine how the key of knowledge, also called secret knowledge, has been structured in various cultures from Babylon to the present. This article will also show that there was only a select group of men that had access to this secret knowledge. Only those initiated into the mysteries with the king or the high priest were the heads and the keepers of these mysteries.

In addition, this article will show that Elohim structured the Aaronite priesthood of Israel as a secret society where the priests were given access to certain knowledge that was not available to the masses. This division of information was mainly due to the fact that the priests would serve as the only mediators between the people and Yahweh at this time (1 Tim. 2:5).

Finally, this article will show that Yahshua the Messiah came into the earth-plane to remove this priesthood and establish a new priesthood after the order of Melchizedek, where everyone that believes would receive direct access to Elohim without a priest (Heb. 7th Chp.; 1 Tim. 2:5). In short, Yahshua the Messiah made the "key of knowledge" available to the masses.

Another point that this article will explore is the role that secret societies, such as the Masons, Rosicrucians, etc., have in possessing this "key of knowledge" since each claim to have the keys to the mysteries.

Why are keys an important symbol in the mysteries?

Now the word "key" plays an important part in the ancient mystery of knowledge. In our modern era many fail to understand the symbolism of the word "key" and its importance because modern day Christians do not teach the interpretation of the ancient symbolism of various cultures, such as Egypt, Greece, and Babylon, any more. Only the secret societies, such as the Freemasons, teach these things.

Now the usage of the word "key of keys" is associated with knowledge and can be traced back to Egypt. Manly P. Hall writes in his book about the Egyptian Goddess Isis and the keys of knowledge. He writes: "… the keys of the secret doctrines of the ancient philosophers, are symbolized by the virgin Isis. Veiled from the head to foot she reveals her wisdom only to the tried and the initiated few who have earned the right to enter her sacred presence, tear from the veiled figure of nature its shroud of obscurity, and stand face to face with the Divine Reality (p. XLV1). "

Is the Pope a priest of the mysteries?

Now the head of the Roman Catholic Church, the Pope of Rome, has keys on his insignia and keys that he wears on a belt around his waist. Manley Hall’s book Secret Teaching Of All Ages states the following about the Pope’s keys which are figurative of the keys to the gates of heaven. He writes: "The gold and silver keys of "God’s Vicar on Earth," the Pope, symbolizes this secret doctrine which, when properly understood, unlocks the treasure chest of the Christian and Jewish Kabbalah." In essence, the Pope of Rome is saying that he has the Keys to all secret mysteries of Elohim.

Rev. Alexander Hislop confirms Manly Hall in his book The Two Babylons. "Saturn the hidden God, —the god of the Mysteries, whom the Pope represents whose secrets were revealed only to the initiated, —was identical with Janus, …to the uninitiated and the initiated alike, as the grand Mediator, the opener and the shutter, who had the key of the invisible world (p. 271)."

Did priests have the Keys to knowledge?

Now the priests always held the "key of knowledge" in their hands. This began with the kingdom Babylon that served as a model of all great civilizations to follow. It consisted of mainly religious knowledge, which comprised a whole host of magic, idolatry, and scientific knowledge of the era. In short, all knowledge was in the hands of the priesthood.

The priests created the money in the temple, told the farmers when to plant their crops, and were the healing doctors and scientists in all fields. Rev. Alexander Hislop in his book The Two Babylons spells out the great knowledge and power the priests possessed and who they gave it to under this system. He said:"…all knowledge, sacred and profane came to be monopolized by the priesthood, who dealt it out to the initiated in "Mysteries" exactly as they saw fit, according as the interests of the grand system of spiritual despotism… (p. 7);"

Rev. Hislop goes on to say that the priests had total power and the worship of the gods was impossible without them. "… they had the true tradition by which the writs and symbols of the public religion could be interpreted; and without blind and implicit submission to them [priests] what was necessary for salvation could not be known (p.7) ."

Was the Key of Knowledge revealed in Egypt?

Another example of the priesthood having the key of knowledge is when King Amenhotep IV of Egypt revealed to the people that there was only one God. This disclosure put him at odds with the priesthood.

Nesta H. Webster states in her book that the idea of one God or monotheism existed in the Egyptian priesthood before the days of Moses. Adolf Erman in his book Life In Egypt asserts that "even in early times the educated class believed all the deities of the Egyptian religion to be identical" and that "the priests did not shut their eyes to this doctrine, but strove to group the idea of the one God, divided into different persons by poesy and myth.... The priesthood, however, had not the courage to take the final step, to do away with those distinctions which they declared to be immaterial, and to adore the one God under the one name." It was left to Amenhotep IV, later known as Ikhnaton, to proclaim this doctrine openly to the people.

Amenhotep IV wrote the following verse. "They shown me the simplicity and beauty of the young king’s faith in the sole God. He had gained the belief that he created not only all the lower creatures but also all races of men, both Egyptians and foreigners. Moreover the king saw in his goodness …no men had ever before caught vision of the Great Father of all."

Amenhotep IV was later proclaimed a heretic "for he violated the code of the priestly hierarchy by revealing this secret doctrine to the profane" the people.

What was Israel’s Key of Knowledge?

Using this same model, Elohim setup Israel’s Levite priesthood unto righteousness, for these priests were to teach the people the truth. Now the "key of knowledge" consisted of revelations that Elohim provided to the Aaronite priests, which included knowledge of the interpretation of the Torah and the officiating of the priests in the tabernacle and the temple.

Elohim also gave the prophets and other priests personal revelations, such as dreams and visions (Num. 12:6; 1 Sam. 3:1-8). Yahweh did not teach nor reveal these images to the people. For example, when the Magi came from the East to Jerusalem, they told the teachers of Israel and King Herod that they had seen the King of the Jews’ Star in the east and they had come to worship him (Mt. 2:1-2). King Herod and the priests did not inform the people of the magi’s testimonies. It was kept among the priests and the king’s people.

Now many times in the past the prophets were given revelations and information, which was rarely passed unto the masses. Thus, the priests were able to exert a tremendous amount of control over the masses and under this system the people had no hope of gaining first hand knowledge of Elohim.

How did Israel’s priests function in the tabernacle and temple?

Under the law of Moses the Aaronite priesthood was given the responsibility of offering up sacrifices for Israel and officiating in the tabernacle and the temple (Num. 18:1-4). This meant that the priests offered up sacrifices on the brazen altar for Israel’s sins and the high priest appeared before the Ark of the Covenant (which typified the throne of Yahweh-Elohim) in the Most Holy Place on the Day of Atonement (Lv. 17th chp.).

Only the priest had access to the various inner courts of the tabernacle and temple. The people went no farther than the altar of sacrifice to bring their sacrifices, offerings, and gifts to the priests. There were courts for the men and women of Israel and Gentiles (See diagram p. 38). This meant that the people didn’t see any of the vessels of the tabernacle or temple, such as the golden altar of incense, Ark of the Covenant and seven branched candlestick.

By the fact that the priests officiated in the temple, they had the benefit of receiving visions from Elohim from time to time (Lk 1:9-12). Most of the priests under the law were also the prophets. So the people had to rely on the priests for their knowledge of Elohim.

What did Israel’s Priests emphasize?

The priests placed inordinate emphasis on rituals, ceremonies, feast days and their traditions instead of emphasizing the principles of the Torah or the Law of Moses to the people (Mt. 23:1-5). For example, the priests stressed tithing more than spiritual matters.

Now the Messiah said: "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone (Mt. 23:23)." The Messiah goes on to tell the elders of Israel that they violated the laws of Elohim by their traditions.

When the apostles performed certain miracles after the outpouring of the spirit, these healings were kept from the people. One example is when the Apostles Peter and John healed a lame man at Gate Beautiful (Acts 3:1-7).

At their council the elders of Israel said the following. "…What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it. But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name. And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Yahshua (Jesus, Acts 4:15-17)." Here the priest’s council forbade the apostles to preach the truth and refused to acknowledge the power of Elohim’s miracle in the name of Yahshua.

Was there a confrontation between the religious leaders of Israel and the Messiah?

Yahshua the Messiah’s purpose was to reveal to Israel that his appearance was in accordance to the prophetic visions recorded in the Law and Prophets or the Old Testament. In short, this meant that the Messiah was fulfilling these prophecies (Mt. 5:17-18; Lk. 24:27,44-46).

Now these revelations put him in direct confrontation with the religious leaders of Israel, the Scribes and Pharisees. He performed miracles and revealed things to the masses concerning the scriptures that the leaders thought only the priests should know.

This is why he said to them: "Woe unto you, Lawyers for ye have taken, away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. . . . Woe unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in."

The book Secret Societies and Subversive Movements by Nesta Webster points out why the Messiah said this to the religious teachers. What did Christ mean by the key of knowledge? Israel’s leaders were guilty of "…concealing from the people the traditional explanation of the sacred books by means of which they (Israel) would have been able to recognize the Messiah in the person of Jesus Christ." Many of the people however did recognize Him; indeed, the multitude acclaimed Him, spreading their garments before Him and crying, "Hosanna to the Son of David I Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord (p. 18)."

The religious leaders’ jealousy influenced the people to force Pilate to crucify the Messiah (Jn. 27:22). His death aided His cause for it enabled the Holy Spirit to be poured out on Israel as was prophesied (Jn. 14:18, 18).

How did the Messiah affect the Key of Knowledge?

By the Messiah fulfilling and removing the Old Covenant or the Law of Moses, the Aaronite priesthood was removed (Heb. 7:11-15) and there was no more sacrifices or a priestly mediator between Israel and Elohim. The people had direct access to their creator within, which is the key of knowledge.

Now the "key of knowledge" is the Holy Spirit or the Messiah within each of us under the New Covenant. The Messiah told His disciples that He would not leave them comfortless (Jn. 14:17-18) (1 Tim. 2:5), but at that Day (Pentecost) the Holy Spirit, which is the teacher, would teach them all things. (Jn. 14:26).

This same spirit has continued to teach down to this present day. Paul said the greatest mystery revealed to mankind is the Messiah within. He states: "Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom Elohim (God) would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Messiah (Christ) in you, the hope of glory (Col. 1:26-27):"

By the Messiah abolishing the old Aaronite priesthood and the old form of temple worship, this enabled the people to worship Elohim in spirit and truth (Jn. 4:21-24). Under the new Melchizedek priesthood, everyone that was and will be resurrected became/becomes a king and a priest (Rev. 1:5). This means that they have direct access to Elohim first hand without the need of a priest. Because the temple is the body of Elohim, the Holy Spirit now is appearing within the minds of men and not in temples made with men’s hands (Acts 17:24).

Conclusion

All cultures, especially the advanced cultures of Egypt, Babylon, Greece and Persia, have always kept the key of knowledge from the masses for esoteric reasons. The priesthood only revealed it to the new initiates. Now the King and the priesthood controlled this whole process and usually headed up these Mystery schools. Basically they had a monopoly on all knowledge, both the divine and scientific. William Still’s book The New World Order: The Ancient plan of Secret Societies confirms the purpose of secret groups. "Wherever they sprang up, secrecy was maintained in these groups for two reasons. First was to prevent condemnation and persecution in the event the rites they practiced were made public. A second purpose for the secret societies was to create a mechanism for the perpetuation, from generation to generation, of policies, principles or systems of learning confined to a limited group of selected and initiated persons (p. 45)."

By withholding the key of knowledge from the masses, the people’s psychological and spiritual growth was stunted, which maintained the exclusivity of the priesthood. As the physical body needs oxygen, water, and food to live, likewise the mind needs information to grow and develop both psychologically and spiritually. By information being withheld from the masses, it results in them being malnourished, as the physical body would be when food is withheld from it. Under this model the nation, as a whole wasn’t able to develop.

The key of knowledge was supposed to elevate the people’s understanding, but instead it was withheld from them and used in the most corrupt fashion to totally control the people.

It was for this reason that Yahshua the Messiah abolished the Aaronite priesthood, who taught the Law of Moses and kept the temple and tabernacle. For as long as the people were dependent upon the priests, they could not achieve their full potential.

Thus, the Messiah transferred the key of knowledge from the Aaronite priesthood to the people by pouring out the Holy Spirit, which revealed the key of knowledge. It provided direct access to the spirit within man’s temple and made those that have this key of knowledge priests and kings through a revealed revelation after the order of Melchizedek (Rev. 1:5). The key of knowledge is within a man’s soul throughout the ages of eternity, as the Messiah told His disciples.

Although the Egyptian priesthood, who had the key of knowledge, knew that their temples typifies man’s physical body which is a temple (1 Cor. 6:19-20), the revealed understanding was not given until the Holy Spirit made itself manifest in the consciousness of man.

A final quote from Manly P. Hall about the Mystery of the Tabernacle "…He who understands the Mystery of the Tabernacle needs no other religion, for he will be one with the seers of the ages. As he goes about his daily life, every man - unknown to himself- is a priest of the Tabernacle; for as a priests were appointed by Jehovah to keep His House in order, so each individual is, in a like manner, appointed to keep his world in order. Nature is the tabernacle, man is the priest, and the one God of all nations and all peoples dwells in every soul behind the embroidered veil of the Holy of Holiest (p. CXXXIII)."
