**Operation Spanner – The Satanic Ritual Extravaganza**
__ Background:__ There were two distinct separate parts to Operation Spanner;

1) 1983 to 1986 covert raids on advertisers and responders to a gay magazine involving over 640 raids, of which no defendants or charges were forthcoming, but resulting in over 60 alleged suicides. This part of the operation was not publicised. From the information available. it may also be presumed that the alleged suicides were mostly, if not all, “potential defendants”.

2) 1987 to 1989 The Spannermen case involving 16+ raids. This was carried out with full media coverage upon charging, including false claims and lies, and centred around visitors to a Bryn Alyn child abuse whistleblower's address.

Both of these sections had different and possibly multiple agendas and purposes, but all were carried out as attacks on gay men, gay practices and gay lifestyles, on behalf of the Church of England.

Operation Spanner involved, in addition to the 16 Spannermen charged, between £4.5million and £6.5million in costs by the time the court appearances were under way. The controversy over the prosecutions and convictions had additionally served another purpose in the operation altogether.

**Understanding the ritual codes used throughout the operation**.The Illuminati, which is a ritualistic organization that has been around since the Christian crusades has a very special way of looking at numbers and using them for witchcraft. The members of the Illuminati believe also that a chance of success is more likely if the same number is multiplied several times so they will schedule a special event on a date that has a run of three numbers.

**The basic coding of the whole operation is signified by the number 3 sequence.**
__3 signifies royalty__. It symbolizes the magic shape of the triangle, and is believed to be exceptionally powerful when multiplied by itself.

**Operation codes 3, 33, 333, 3333.** **In sections as sequences in order of 3 – 6 (the first part) - 9 (the second part) - 12 (the whole/ 3x4= 12 parts)**
**3** **signifies the both the start and end of the operation** as 3333=12=1+2=3 (start date 1983=21=3) and repeats itself in all aspects of the operation. Also represents start date 21=777 Aleister Crowley wrote a book called 777 that is significant to the Illuminati.

**33 **__signifies both separate parts of the operation, each of around three years duration. It also signifies as 3+3=6 as the code for the first part (the cull / ritual pathway), and also as end date of the first part (1986=24=6). As 3x3=9 signifies the code for the second part, and the police operation end date required (1989=27=9).__

**333** as 3+3+3=9 as the code for the second part (Spannermen Case), and the number incarcerated. As 3x3x3=27 signifies both the end date (1989) and second part as 2+7=9, and as 27=999 signifies hidden evil (the cover story fabrication / unmentioned deaths).

**3333** represents 3 as itself as 3+3+3+3=12 parts of operation completed, as 1+2=3 as ending of the operation. As 3x3x3x3=81 represents total number of men sentenced - 15 Spannermen and 66 sentenced from first part. As 8+1=9 also signifies sentencing completion with 9 incarcerations.

**Operation Codes 6, 66, 666, 6666**
**6** represents the number of years duration of the police operation and also the code for the first part (the cull / ritual path) and end date of the first part (1986=24=6).

**66 **signifies the ritual pathway (the cull) and the number of potential defendant victims.

https://gematria.codes/category/66-occult-symbolism/
**666 (estimated)** would indicate the total number of raids undertaken for both parts. The number of the beast/satan.

**6666** represents the end date of the first part as 1986=24=6+6+6+6, and as 2+4=6 represents both the first part and the end date of code 6.

**Operation Codes 9, 99, 999, 9999**
**9 **Signifies the code for the second part of the operation (the Spannermen operation). Also signifies spiritual power and initiation. It also represents an inverted 6 and indicates hidden 6 year duration, and hidden code 6 operation.

**99** Signifies as 9+9=18=6+6+6 the number of the beast, whilst as 18=8+1=9, the number of incarcerations, whilst as 9x9=81, the total number of defendants sentenced.

**999** Indicates inverted 666, and thus hidden evil (the cover story fabrication / unmentioned deaths).

**9999** Indicates divine completion with unfinished business (sentencing and incarcerations), As 9+9+9+9=36= both 18+18=666+666, as satisfactory completion of both parts, and 3+6=9 shows both the code for this part, and the number of incarcerations to follow, and the end date of both the second part and the whole police operation as 9/1989=36 =9999.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

**The precise number of those who met a sudden early death has not been disclosed, but is said to be over 100. (This is as one possibility 111) - see:**

https://gematria.codes/category/66-occult-symbolism/ )

scroll down to "Solis Seal = 666"

If that is the case, then it would be contained within the 3 sequences as 9+6=15 men charged; 15x3 basic code= 45 additional victims ( not deemed to be potential defendants) + 66 defendants met early death = 111 within operation code 6 (x6)

= 666 - However the exact total number is not known as yet

__THE NUMBER THREE__
To cite more than a few of the very large number of references in Masonry to the number Three could serve no useful purpose, as it is far better that the student investigate the matter for himself. But, for a few of the more obvious examples, it will be noted that there are three occurrences of each of the following: degrees in Craft Masonry; Great Lights; Lesser Lights; Fellowcraft's Working Tools; Movable Jewels; Immovable Jewels; Supporting Pillars, and lighted Cardinal Points. Also there are all the various incidents of Three that follow directly from the fact that there are three degrees, as three positions of the Square and Compasses, and so forth.

Three, among practically all the ancient peoples, was considered the most significant of all the numbers and was, in many of the ancient religions, the number of certain of the attributes of many of the gods. For example, Jove's thunder bolt was three-forked, and Cerebus, the dog of Hades, had three heads. The Druids' ceremonies contained many references to it. And in the rites of Mithras and in those of Hindustan are many important references to it.

Three, as the sum of the Monad and the Duad, is, symbolically, the result of the addition of the Male Principle, symbolized by the Monad, and the Female Principle, symbolized by the Duad, and, thus, plainly becomes the symbol of the Creative Power. It is also the symbol of the three-fold nature of Deity--He who comprises the Generative Power, the Productive Capacity, and the Result, and who is the Creator, the Preserver, and the Destroyer.

__THE NUMBER SIX__
Six is the number of the angles of the Six-Pointed Star formed by the two interlaced Equilateral Triangles and, so, calls attention to that ancient talisman, the Seal of Solomon or Shield of David.

__THE NUMBER SEVEN__
As stated by Mackey, "the symbolic Seven is to be found in a hundred ways over the whole Masonic system." This statement is so true and the discovery of those many references is so interesting and profitable to the student that no attempt is made here to gather them together. But no student who neglects to make an effort to discover them can get out of Masonry all that it has to offer him.

Seven is referred to in practically all of the ancient religions. There were seven altars before the god Mithras. In the Persian Mysteries there were seven caverns. The Goths had seven Deities and in the Gothic Mysteries the candidate met with seven obstructions. References in the Scriptures to Seven are almost innumerable. To cite but a very few:--

Noah had seven days notice of the commencement of the Deluge. The clean beasts were taken into the ark by sevens. The ark came to rest on Mt. Ararat in the seventh month. The intervals between the dispatching of the doves from the ark were seven days each. Solomon was seven years building the Temple. And the Temple was dedicated in the seventh month, the feast lasting seven days.

The few examples given above of the occurrences of references to the number Seven indicate the peculiar veneration in which that number has been held from the most ancient times. Its different symbolical meanings are nearly as numerous as the different systems of religious philosophy in which it occurs. But, to the Mason, following the teachings of "our ancient friend and brother, the great Pythagoras," it may well be the symbol of Perfection, this significance being plainly derivable from the fact that Seven is the sum of the numbers Three and Four, the numbers of the two perfect figures--the Triangle and the Square.

In concluding it is emphasized that the above statements of the significances of the various numbers are but a very small proportion of the many that might be made. There are many symbolic meanings assigned to each of the numbers and, by investigation, each student can find, among that large number of interpretations, at least one meaning for each number that will appeal to him and which will imbue Masonry with new life and new interest and will help to convert what has, perhaps, become (through no fault of Masonry) a "dry as dust" series of actions and words into a living system of instruction in morals, philosophy, ancient history, and symbolism.

**THE NUMBER NINE**
If the number three was celebrated among the ancient sages, that of three times three had no less celebrity; because, according to them, each of the three elements which constitute our bodies is ternary: the water containing earth and fire; the earth containing igneous and aqueous particles; and the fire being tempered by globules of water and terrestrial corpuscles which serve to feed it. No one of the three elements being entirely separated from the others, all material beings composed of these three elements, whereof each is triple, may be designated by the figurative number of three times three, which has become the symbol of all formations of bodies. Hence the name of ninth envelop given to matter. Every material extension, every circular line, has for its representative sign the number nine among the Pythagoreans, who had observed the property which this number possesses of reproducing itself incessantly and entire in every multiplication; thus offering to the mind a very striking emblem of matter, which is incessantly composed before our eyes, after having undergone a thousand decompositions.

The number nine was consecrated to the Spheres and the Muses. It is the sign of every circumference; because a circle or 360 degrees is equal to nine, that is to say, 3+6+0=9. Nevertheless, the ancients regarded this number with a sort of terror; they considered it a bad presage; as the symbol of versatility, of change, and the emblem of the frailty of human affairs. Wherefore they avoided all numbers where nine appears, and chiefly 81, the produce of nine multiplied by itself, and the addition whereof, 8+1, again presents the number nine. As the figure of the number six was the symbol of the terrestrial globe, animated by a Divine Spirit, the figure of the number nine symbolized the earth, under the influence of the Evil Principle; and thence the terror it inspired. Nevertheless, according to the Cabalists, the character nine symbolizes the generative egg, or the image of a little globular being, from whose lower side seems to flow its spirit of life. The Ennead, signifying an aggregate of nine thongs or persons, is the first square of unequal numbers. Every one is aware of the singular properties of the number nine, which, multiplied by itself or any other number whatever, gives a result whose final sum is always nine, or always divisible by nine. Nine multiplied by each of the ordinary numbers, produces an arithmetical progression, each member whereof, composed of two figures, and presents a remarkable fact; for example:

1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 5 . 6 . 7 . 8 . 9 . 10

9 . 18 . 27 . 36 . 45 . 54 . 63 . 72 . 81 . 90

The first line of figures gives the regular series, from 1 to 10. The second reproduces this line doubly; first ascending from the first figure of 18, and then returning from the second figure of 81. In Freemasonry, nine derives its value from its being the product of three multiplied into itself, and consequently in Masonic language the number nine is always denoted by the expression three times three. For a similar reason, 27, which is 3 times 9, and 81, which is 9 times 9, are esteemed as sacred numbers in the advanced Degrees.

__THE NUMBER TWELVE__
Twelve being composed of the mystical numbers 7+5 or of 3X4, the triad multiplied by the quaternion, was a number of considerable value in ancient systems. Thus there were twelve signs of the zodiac, twelve months in the year, twelve Tribes of Israel, twelve stones in the pectoral, and twelve oxen supporting the molten sea in the Temple. There were twelve apostles in the new law, and the New Jerusalem has twelve gates, twelve foundations, is twelve thousand furlongs square, and the number of the sealed is twelve times twelve thousand. Even the Pagans respected this number, for there were in their mythology twelve superior and twelve inferior gods.

__THE NUMBER FIFTEEN__
A sacred number symbolic of the name of God, because the letters of the holy name YOD HE, Jah, are equal, in the Hebrew mode of numeration by the letters of the alphabet, to fifteen; YOD is equal to ten, and HE is equal to five. Hence, from veneration for this sacred name, the Hebrews do not, in ordinary computations, when they wish to express the number fifteen, make use of these two letters, but of two others, which are equivalent to nine and six.

__THE NUMBER TWENTY-ONE__

A number of mystical import, partly because it is the product of 3 and 7, the most sacred of the odd numbers, but especially because it is the sum of the numerical value of the letters of the Divine Name, Eheyeil, thus:

5+ 10+ 5+ 1 = 21.

It is little valued in Freemasonry, but is deemed of great importance in the Cabala and in Alchemy; in the latter, because it refers to the twenty-one days of distillation necessary for the conversion of the grosser metals into silver.

__THE NUMBER EIGHTY-ONE__
A sacred number in the advanced Degrees, because it is the square of nine, which is again the square of three. The Pythagoreans, however, who considered the nine as a fatal number, and especially dreaded eighty-one, because it was produced by the multiplication of nine by itself.
