I have been studying some info I downloaded years ago this past weekend that finally makes TOTAL sense as to where the KNIGHTS TEMPLAR originated from besides FRANCE.
A Biblical scholar named Neville Stevens has written a book entitled Historically Who Were The Levites? which I have read several chapters of this past weekend.
In summary the LEVITES were the CHOSEN tribe by GOD to be the priests and teachers of Israel. It was the LEVITES who were in charge of KING SOLOMON’S TEMPLE.
Later in history the LEVITES became what we know as the CELTS who continued to worship GOD when the others in Europe were worshiping PAGAN gods. They ruled for hundreds of years what is today the U.K. and most of Europe until they were driven back to what is today SCOTLAND where my ancestors are from. BRAVEHEART was a CELTIC warrior.
Then the CELTS formed up an ELITE group of WARRIORS that originated in FRANCE where they also retreated to. Those WARRIORS became my descendants the KNIGHTS TEMPLAR!
The TEMPLARS took up the Holy Crusades to drive out GOD’S enemy – THE MOSLEMS. Neville shows that the MOSLEMS have been GOD’S enemy all the way back to the times of ABRAHAM!
Another enemy of GOD is the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH which the TEMPLARS finally came to realize that led to Friday the 13th and the Inquisition led by Pope Clement and the French king Philippe. They wanted the TEMPLAR’S vast wealth they thought was in Paris. Neville believes like I do that the TEMPLARS fled FRANCE. I think they went to what is today SWITZERLAND and Neville believes they went to SPAIN.
Neville believes that we are in the time just before the predicted reign of the ANTICHRIST as I do. He also believes that the REAL CHOSEN will go through the 3.5 years of the ANTICHRIST’S reign and I think that is a distinct possibility!
