The WHITE HORSE:
-Revelations 6:2 says “And behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow. A crown was given to him, and he came forth conquering, and to conquer.”
The Phrase VBIQVE:
-A Latin word found on many ancient Roman coins meaning “everywhere.”
-Its English form is UBIQUE – the root word in English for “ubiquitous” which means present, or seeming to be present, everywhere at the same time, omnipresent.
-(Left) The sign of admiration of the sixth degree of the Masonic lodge.
-(Right) Napoleon Bonaparte is also depicted with the same gesture.
It is also very similar to the “Seig Heil” gesture of the Nazis (above). The term means hail victory. Could victory be closely related to conquering as stated in revelations?
The stories of the Knights Templar or the Poor Knights of Christ of Solomon’s Temple have become trite and misconstrued in movies like National Treasure and The Da Vinci Code. Just because these names and ideas are taken out of context, used in fictional stories, and twisted to fit a certain story does not mean that they are not real in some fashion or that many are not mixed with a cloud of fictional association to dilute their true meaning.
The Poor Knights of Christ were called such because, in order to become a member, you pledged yourself and all of your wealth to the group. Other names for these same men are the Knights of Solomon’s Temple, who were referred to as such because they took up residence on the location of Solomon’s Temple.
The original Knights were commissioned to protect pilgrims on their journey to the Holy Land.
