The Green Man seems to be a connecting factor between ancient Egypt, Al Kadir, paganism, various eastern religious temples, Catholicism, and Freemasonry.
Osiris is one of the oldest gods for whom records have been found. His name is mentioned on the Palmero Stone (around 2500 B.C.)
Osiris was usually depicted as having green skin.
He is both brother and husband of Isis, and father of posthumous son, Horus.
His name means "Throne of the Eye".
He holds a shepherd's crook to symbolize his authority over the people (sheeple). The flail is considered a symbol of power; it is used both for agricultural purposes as well as a weapon.
Al-Khidr is also known as "the Green One". He is thought to be a mythic hero and spokeman for the Divine One. He was the "deputy of God" and his representative on earth. Al-Khidr became immortal when he drank from the well of life. He revealed esoteric doctrines to men of exceptional sanctity.
Al-Khidr is mentioned in the Quran as being the Divine Guide of Moses, accompanying him for a time. In Islamic writings he is often mentioned as the "Green Angel Guide".
Al-Khidr was the head of the ancient school of the Prophets, el-Khadoras, on Mt. Carmel.
"The Greeks call al-Khadir, Hormux (Hermes) the adept and Initiator into the Temple Mysteries of the Great Pyramid.
It is from Isaiah 19:19 that this Temple Pyramid is referred to as the "altar of the Lord".
"19:In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the LORD at its border. 20:It will be a sign and witness to the LORD Almighty in the land of Egypt."
In ancient literature, I have found various spellings for this name to include al-Khidor and al-Khador.
Al-Kdhir is also known as Melchizedek. It is said that Melchizedek gave to Moses the instructions for building arc of the covenant. According to information on ancient technologies which have long been withheld from the public, the cherubim figures on the arc of the covenant were shaped from lumps of carbon, then goldplated to hold an electrical charge. The "Baghdad batteries" were contained within the chest.
Green man carvings are also found in ancient eastern temples, in the Apo Kayan area of Borneo, the chapels of Dhankar Gompa in the Himalayas, in the temples of Kathmandu, and in the Jain temples of Ranakpur, and in Roman buildings.
So how does Osiris and al-Kdhir end up in figures on many Catholic churches?
This is one of many Green Man images around the chancel arch. Many Green Man images spew foliage from the mouth. This may be symbolic of panthestic speech, where nature is worshipped above humanity. This particular image, as well as emitting foliage from his mouth, also has a serpent/dragon (symbol of eternity) which encircles his head.
Art historians have noted that Rosslyn Chapel has the greatest number of Green Man images of any medieval chapel in Europe. "The profusion of carved symbolism is extraordinary throughout the chapel, ranging from biblical allegory to pagan symbolism. One of the best known images is of the Green Man, of which there are at least 103 representations inside the chapel alone, with an additional number on the exterior and roof as well."
The Rosslyn Chapel was built by the St. Clair family specifically as a Christian edifice. By 1446, the green men within the chapel were no longer considered pagan, but had been adopted as a Christian symbol. For more info on the Rosslyn Chapel see: www.rosslyntemplars.org.uk/the_green_man.htm
It is my opinion that for these stories to survive as a warning into our age, the truth had to be disguised and hidden within symbolism and allegory. The Green Man, or Green Angel Guide, was most likely the leader of the Watcher Angel rebellion. These fallen angels set themselves up to be worshipped as gods. These aliens brought technology to this planet. They taught simple science as tricks of illusion, sorcery, to the prophets. Having been enlightened by these beings of higher intelligence, many of these prophets became wizards through these teachings. They used their knowledge to deceive and control the masses.
We are coming full circle. There is an especially important message in that these gargoyle-like faces have foliage coming out of their mouths. Green speech. We have a lot of this today. Is civilization about to be deceived and tricked again?
