The Great Seal of the United States is used to authenticate certain documents issued by the United States federal government. The phrase is used both for the physical seal itself (which is kept by the United States Secretary of State), and more generally for the design impressed upon it. The Great Seal was first used publicly in 1782.
The obverse of the great seal is used as the national coat of arms of the United States. It is officially used on documents such as United States passports, military insignia, embassy placards, and various flags. As a coat of arms, the design has official colors; the physical Great Seal itself, as affixed to paper, is monochrome
If we want to know the occultic, hidden meaning of the seal, we should go to it’s official history, courtesy of Gaillard Hunt, Chief, Division of Manuscripts. He oversaw the publication of the 1909 book “History of the Seal of the United States”, which you can read online at http://books.google.com/books?id=jUZmAAAAMAAJ&dq=history%20of%20the%20seal%20of%20the%20united%20states&pg=PP1#v=onepage&q&f=false
The seal was originally proposed on July 4, 1776, the day of Independence. Members of Congress had assembled after dinner on that date, desiring to “…complete the evidences of the independence of the United States by formally adopting an official sign of sovereignty and a national coat of arms” (page 7)
In this post, I would like to call out points of interest in the manuscript and their esoteric, or “hidden” meaning.
The first version of the seal was mocked up in a report dated 10 Aug 1776, and is found among the Jefferson Papers in the Library of Congress (page 12):
The front of the seal showed “…Pharaoh sitting in an open chariot, a Crown on his head and a sword in his hand passing through the divided waters of the Red Sea in pursuit of the Israelites; Rays from a pillow of fire in the cloud…beaming on Moses…” (page 11)
The reverse of the Seal shows Lady Liberty and a soldier, but our interest is in the “all-seeing eye”, which they refer to as “eye of Providence” (page 13). The eye is a symbol of freemasonry, and is itself a symbol of the Sun, which in the beginning of time was symbolic of Nimrod. The book even alludes to this by stating that “…The eye was an adoption of a very ancient symbol of the overseeing God” (page 13)
It should be noted that the modern seal has two sides: The side facing the audience is the exoteric side…I.E, the side that is intended for the masses who do not know its true significance. It is simply a “symbol”, meant to deceive. The hidden side, called esoteric, is the side facing the speaker (usually the President), and shows the real symbol of power which he stands before, always under it’s gaze. In fact, the eye is the Eye of Horus, an Egyptian god, who, through my postings on Nimrod (http://biblepaedia.wordpress.com/nimrod/ ) you will learn is just one type of every false god which began at the Tower of Babel and Nimrod himself. As for the motto “E Pluribus Unum”, which is Latin for “Out of Many, One”, we find that “…Jefferson…wished to convey the idea from Aesop’s fables…”. It should be noted that Modern scholarship reveals fables and proverbs of “Aesopic” from existing in both ancient Sumer and Akkad, as early as the third millennium BC, or during ancient Babylonian times (Wikipaedia). As for the occultic “Lady Liberty” and her connection to Semiramis, the prostitute wife of Nimrod, please read my post “Nimrod Part 16: The Statue of Liberty, and the Freemasons“
