we think freemasonry is in league with Satan

Freemasonry is incompatible with Christianity!
Freemasonry's syncretistic view of God
In Freemasonry the god of the secret societies is covertly substituted for the One True God. This false god is identified in the Masonic lodges as "the Great Architect."

John 14:11, 13 tells Christians to call upon God the Father in the name of Jesus Christ. Yet in Masonic lodges prayers are always directed to the generic 'Great Architect of the Universe'. Masons deliberately omit the holy name of Jesus Christ from their prayers.

Freemasonry teaches that due-paying Freemasonry & good works alone is one's guarantee for Heaven. Without any intervention needed by Jesus Christ. This is a Satanic Lie to me and to most Christians. Masons don't worship the Christian God Jesus! They worship a generic Grand Architect of the Universe.

Freemasonry's teachings on how a Mason makes himself fit for heaven are in profound conflict with the Christian faith.
Masons wrongly believe that their own good works - without the need for God's grace only gotten through faith in Jesus Christ - will allow them to enter into the 'celestial lodge above'.

The goal of Masonry has always been to change America from a Christian nation into a secular society.
 

 
Since Freemasonry has attempted so strenuously to claim that they are just a "good ole boy" fraternity that does good works and has a good time, most people will be shocked to learn the bitter truth behind that facade.  Freemasonry certainly isn't "free". It could cost you your soul.

Although they will deny it to you at first, most Masons find out in later degrees that the great lie of Masonry is exactly the same lie Satan is living. Masons think that through masonry one can chisel away layers of oneself, similar to how one creates a beautiful statue out of rough stone.  And they think the end result will be no need for God; because they think the perfect Mason is like God. Pages 50-51 of the Mason handbook makes this quite clear - but not to the initiate. Masons are lied to about everything in the 1st three degrees. Satan and Masonry have the exact same goals. The secret goal of Masonry is to subjugate the world for Masonry, and be like God. This subjugation via behind the scene secret means is openly announced within the motto of the 33 degree Scottish Rite, which is "Ordo Ab Chao", or Order From Chaos. Masonry looks like a fraternity, but that's just to snare you.

Masons repeatedly are directed to the "Mystery Religion" and the time man found God in nature.  Almost none of Masonry's teachings come from Christianity.  This 'mystery religion' Masons have joined originated from pagans in ancient Egypt, Chaldea, and in China. The Mystery Religion, Freemasonry and all 'ancient' secret societies have one thing in common. They string you along, just to finally tell you that there is no God; and you are a god, because you follow their teachings, which are:

Relax. Be greedy. Be selfish - if these help you get ahead. Win at any cost. Enjoy your expensive Freemason diamond ring and other symbols, pay your hefty dues on time, and follow the Masonic - path. And you too will be successful - because there is no Hell, and no higher authority other than Lucifer; who is misunderstood.

Once Masons progress to the higher degrees and they finally believe the 'Masonic lie"; and they will 'understand' that the Grand Architect of the Universe is not the God of the Old or New Testaments, but instead is the perfect dues paying Mason in good standing, who like the statue example above, they chipped away at, and finally shed needless 'layers' from both their old useless religion, and from loyalties outside of Masonry, which all along were what concealed them from their own personal true image, as the one and only real God.

Having finally understood that, it may be too late for you - if you think you are a Christian, and also are a Mason; unless you repent to Jesus, return to your family, and flee from 'Satan's Synagogue'. Your diamond rings and other pagan Masonry jewelry won't make the least impression on Jesus. Satan 'sold' this same lie (you are a God) to Eve in Eden, and he sold this same lie to the Masons and earlier 'ancient' pagans.

May Jesus have mercy on your soul. Jesus answered, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me".

 

 

An insidious byproduct of Freemasonry is to keep husbands and wives out of churches & away from their children and their homes...
 

Satan does not need to receive worship to achieve his goals.  All he has to do is to keep a man from following Jesus.  Satan knows that anyone who does not follow in the teachings of Jesus does not have God. (2 John 9)

 

Freemasonry's Levels
 

This is what the Freemason Manly P. Hall, who Masons highly regard as a modern day Masonic philosopher revealed about Masonry's deception:

"Freemasonry is a fraternity within a fraternity - an outer organization concealing an inner brotherhood of the elect.

...it is necessary to establish the existence of these two separate yet independent orders, the one visible and the other invisible. The visible society is a splendid camaraderie of 'free and accepted' men enjoined to devote themselves to ethical, educational, fraternal, patriotic, and humanitarian concerns. The invisible society is a secret and most august fraternity whose members are dedicated to the service of a mysterious arcanum arcanorum (secret or mystery). In each generation only a few are accepted into the inner sanctuary of the work.
Reference: Excellent Book 'brotherhood of darkness' by Dr Stanley Monteith - page 74

Freemasonry is a hidden fraternal order, and defined by them as a system of morality. The first three steps are the Blue Lodge. The first degree is called Entered Apprentice. The second degree is called Fellow Craft. The Third degree is called Master Mason. Most men only go to the third degree, but if one chooses, he may advance either through the York Rite or the Scottish Rite. The Scottish Rite has thirty-two degrees. In each degree, the Mason pledges himself to a different Egyptian deity. There is a thirty-third degree that is largely honorary, but the thirty-two degrees give you access to becoming a Shriner. As a Shriner you will place your hand on the pagan Muslim Qur'an (Koran) and pledge yourself to the pagan "god" Allah; who by the way lies that Jesus did not even die on a cross, and that God has no Son.  This pagan 'Allah' never once shows that it knows the real name of God (Jesus/Yeshua/Yahweh/I am).


 


The Lying and Deception begins with the "G"

Ex-33 degree Mason Jim Shaw says; "The Blue Lodge Mason is taught that the "G" in the basic Masonic symbol represents God.  Later on, he is told that it represents "deity".  Later still, he is told that it represents "geometry".

In reality, this letter represents the "generative principle," the Sun-god and, thus, the worshipped phallus, the male "generative principle..." In its position (along with the square and compass) on the east wall over the chair (throne) of the Worshipful Master, it is the representation of the Sun, thus of the Sun-god, Osiris.  Its earthly meaning, then, is of the sacred phallus; its cosmic meaning is of the Sun, worshipped since antiquity by pagans while facing the East.  Reference, book: The Deadly Deception", page 144

 
Freemasonry is one of many apostate religions dedicated to the destruction of traditional Judaism and Christianity.  Those who aspire to grow in their closeness to Jesus Christ, and to increase their discernment in these days, would do well to stay very clear of Freemasonry.  Are your loyalties with Jesus Christ or are they with the lodge? Both are diametrically opposed to one another as you will see below.

Masons have mixed idolatry, paganism, the occult, Gnosticism, Kabala, fertility cults, Satanism, spiritualism, demonology, and put it into a blender and come up with the Masonic religion.  It is not of God!  It is a false religion; the Harlot of Babylon.  Masons say they offer new candidates "the light".  The light they are actually giving is: Lucifer.  The Christian Bible says that Satan walks to and fro on this earth masquerading as an "angel of light",  that many might be deceived. 


As occultist Benjamin Creme states, "in Freemasonry is embedded the core or the secret heart of the occult mysteries, wrapped up on number, metaphor, and symbol"...

 

Unknown to most Masons, there is an occult side to Masonry.  It is at levels in Masonry that most Masons never get to.

In his book Masonry "Beyond the Light", William Schnoebelen (now a saved Christian) talks about his experiences as first a Satanist and then a Mason who passed through nearly all the Mason Degrees, including some that American Masons are unaware of; such as degrees in Masonry like the Egyptian rites of Masonry and the Paladin.

During his initiation into Palladium Masonry William sadly admits to standing with Masons, some who were also Satanists and chanting; "Glory and Love for Lucifer! Hatred! Hatred! Hatred! to God accursed! accursed! accursed!". He says that hashish provides some of their 'illumination', taking after the 1st 'Illuminati' 18th century Mason Adam Weishaupt. 

During the Palladium 'program' William tells how Masons promised to surrender themselves body and soul to Lucifer, usually for 7 years, and Lucifer promised to grant them all their worldly desires. 

Through drugs and occult William says that they practiced opening the 'Third Eye' which when opened completely flooded their brains with the 'pure' consciousness of Lucifer himself--which is Satan's counterfeit of the Christian's 'being born again'. He says one would then look at the world and people as Satan does.

William says that as this degree progressed, they had conversations with the dead and then went on to 'marrying' the dead when the demons ultimately possessed them entirely to a point that "there is no longer anyone home" in the host body. William says he experienced being linked mentally into a "vast spider web" of communication as part of an invisible army of slaves almost totally dependent on Satan.

The Secret of Masonry is this:

As a Mason you will be led and hoodwinked into believing there is useful knowledge to be learned in Masonry.  This is the 'hook', and in each level you will be disappointed with these so-called Secrets, which are all frivolous, made up, and insignificant.  This so-called 'knowledge' will also be monetarily costly, and very time consuming -- away from your family.  It is the lure of curiosity and nothing more that will be satisfied by Masonry.  

You will be made to 'swear' things and take 'solemn oaths'; and in doing so, to act against your conscience as both a Christian and an American.  These oaths and pledges will in time act upon your conscience in such the same way as a Christian who has knowingly taken the mark of the beast. 

At some point it will dawn on you that you have chosen the lodge, the occult and Satan over the Lord Jesus Christ.  When you notice there is a complete "black out" of even the mention of Jesus Christ in your lodge, you will feel trapped because of all the "solemn Masonic oaths" you had made, without knowing in advance of just what you were in for. Your "swearing" to keep Mason secrets is forbidden by the Word of God to "Swear not at all".  Yet diabolically, you may be asked to do this with your hand on a Bible and a compass & square.  Your oaths will be awful, and you will need to pledge to keep undefined secrets.  And you will pledge to maintain these frivolous secrets under the penalty of death.  This is an extrajudicial oath.  And as such, contrary to the laws of the land.  Yet you will be enticed to make them.

 


As a group they are officially known as the 'Free and Accepted Masons,' sometimes called the 'Ancient Free and Accepted Masons.' Most often they're referred to simply as 'Freemasons' or 'Masons.'  One main difference between Freemasonry and Christianity is that Christianity holds that Jesus is everything, while Masonry teaches that He is nothing - equal to pagan gods such as Allah and those taught by Buddha.  The Bible kept in Masonic Lodges is there just like a piece of furniture.  The Holy Name of Jesus is never to be read from it.

 

The I.N.R.I. ploy...

You may see the inscription I.N.R.I. in a Masonic lodge. To a Christian, it stands for that which was inscribed by Pilate above the Lord Jesus on His cross. It means "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews". But according to the book 'A Study in American Freemasonry', pages 38-39, by Preuss, to a Mason it means: 'Igne Natura Renovatur Integra' or Entire Nature is Renovated by Fire.

The ultimate object of secret societies, even back to the days of Hermes, who many know as the 'father of the occult' - has been to take a new recruit with a belief in a personal God - and to ultimately, over time, change that recruit's belief to believe that there is no God, and that the recruit is his own God. It's just like Satan thinking before his fall, that he (Lucifer) is like God. Usually it is preferable and easier if that new recruit has a belief in God. Masonry requires a belief in ANY God, even a cow or a monkey.

The 'secret society process' is that the recruit indoctrinates himself with the secret society's spiritual and mystical teachings, until at last this society's teachings actually become the all-consuming focus of his life. Masonry keeps this deprogramming process quiet from the public, and also quiet to the first several levels of Masonry. Hermes was one of the earliest intellectuals to believe that he was his own authority, and that it was that old belief in a personal God and all that went with it (sorrow for sin, sorrow for greed, sorrow for not loving his neighbor, etc.) that kept him back in life.

How can Christians remain tethered to this blasphemous religion of Masonry?  On page 84 Jim Shaw writes;  "Albert Mackey wrote (in the Masonic Ritualist), "Thus the trestle board (blueprint for life) of the Jew is the Old Testament, of the Mohammedan the Koran; the Veda Scriptures of Hinduism and the writings of Baha-ullah are just as good as the Word of the Christians' God, for the fact is that all religions are never as good as the pure teachings of Freemasonry."

Masonry teaches that Jesus is no greater than the other so-called 'exemplars' of history (such as Mohammed, Buddha, Aristotle, or Joseph Smith). Page 94

33-degree Jim Shaw walked away from Freemasonry one day, after participating in a a Masonic Maundy Thursday 'black communion' ceremony in his Scottish Rites Temple in Florida.  Participants of this ceremony are required to refer to Jesus as an "apostle of mankind who was neither inspired or divine". They then proceed to mock Jesus further by enacting a strange "black communion" ceremony. Pages 105-107

The "Black Communion" of Maundy Thursday:

During this ceremony, Masons blaspheme the Lord. They make an evil, black mockery of His pure and selfless death, and the Lord's will that we take communion "in remembrance of Him."

To elaborate on this, take a good look at Masonry's 'Maundy Thursday' ceremony.  We call it a 'Black Communion' where Masons chant words calling Jesus merely an "apostle of mankind" who was neither inspired nor divine!
In the Scottish Rite the Thursday before Easter, 'Maundy Thursday,' is an important day. On this day Masons always perform a special ceremony of 'Communion' in their local Scottish Rite Temple.

Dressed in long black, hooded robes during this Thursday ceremony, Masons chant:

"We meet this day to commemorate the death of our 'Most Wise and Perfect Master, not as inspired or divine, for this is not for us to decide, but as at least the greatest of the apostles of mankind."

 

33 degree Initiation Ceremony
Strange Black Mass/Black Communion
as told by ex 33 degree Mason Jim Shaw

During this ceremony, Masons continue by mocking Jesus' teachings at His Last Supper and the bread and wine (Body and Blood) - by saying:

"Take, eat, and give to the hungry."  "Take, drink, and give to the thirsty."

One of the Conductors then handed the 'candidate' a human skull, upside down, with wine in it. "May this wine I now drink become a deadly poison to me, as the Hemlock juice drunk by Socrates, should I ever knowingly or willfully violate the same" (the oath).

As I had done so many times before, I said, "We meet this day to commemorate the death of our 'Most Wise and Perfect Master,' not as inspired or divine, for this is not for us to decide, but as at least the greatest of the apostles of mankind."
 
As I spoke these words that I had spoken so many times before, I had a strange and powerful experience. It was as if I were standing apart, listening to myself as I spoke, and the words echoed deep within me, shouting their significance. They were the same words I had spoken so many times before, but had meaning for me now. They made me sick, literally ill, and I stopped.

The realization of what I had just said grew within me like the rising of a crescendo. I had just called Jesus an "apostle of mankind" who was neither inspired nor divine! There was a silent pause that seemed to last a very long time as I struggled with a sick smothering within.

Later, when he came down the wide steps of a large Scottish Rite Temple, 33 degree Mason Jim Shaw turned and looked at the words carved in stone above the entrance: "Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry", Jim remembered thinking: "It isn't ancient (goes back to 17th century), it isn't  Scottish (Scottish rite was begun in France), it isn't free (no females, blacks or poor), and it isn't right (no mention of Jesus allowed)!  This 33 degree Mason, never went back.

Jim found that the bowing to some 'Great Architect of the Universe' and calling all Religions equal is pure blasphemy. 

He thought of the great Masonic lie that all religions are equal, including Islam and Satanism.  If all these religions within Masonry are 'correct' or of equal 'validity', and each claims to be the valid and correct one.  It therefore becomes obvious that they cannot all be 'right' or of equal validity.  Satanists mock and blaspheme God on a daily basis; and Muslims deny Jesus ever even died on a cross.

Islam, for instance rejects that Jesus, the Son of God died a korben (sacrificial atonement) death for us; a pure lamb of God who willingly agreed to be slaughtered, so we who believe in Him can one day be with Him.  Islam gives its greatest regard to a man who did no miracles to prove divinity and in no way measured up to the sinless and loving Jesus.  Muhammad of Islam also made no real prophecies, had everyone killed who disagreed with him, and was fond of splitting up booty from military raids against innocent people.  Yet this Muhammad (aka: Mohammed) and his evil Religion (Islam) is the who the Masonic Shriners venerate. See more in: "Muhammad, Terrorist or Prophet?"

These are the Scriptures that Jim, could not reconcile with Masonry:
 

Jesus said: "I am the bread of life; he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst...him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out...and this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day." John 6:47-54

A Freemason's 33rd Degree Initiation

FOOTNOTES FROM JIM SHAW'S BOOK, Page 76
In a well-ordered lodge, Jesus is never mentioned except in vague, philosophical terms.  Prayers are never in His name, and when scriptures are quoted in the ritual, all references to Him are simply omitted.  For example, II Thessalonians 3:6 is used in the ritual, but not the way it is in your Bible; the words "in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ" are entirely omitted.  Likewise, the ritual includes 1 Peter 2:5, but with the words "by Jesus Christ" omitted.  Albert Mackey, after Albert Pike the highest Masonic authority, calls this changing of the scriptures "a slight but necessary modification" (Masonic Ritualist, page 272)

33 DEGREES. What's the significance?

The numbers 33 and 3 are both prominently featured in occult doctrine.  Ancient mythology teach that the "Sons of man" (Fallen Angels cast out of Heaven with Lucifer?) landed on earth on Mount Hermon. It was then in Phoenicia; now in Israel.  Its altitude makes it Israel's primary strategic early warning system.  This was the first location of extraterrestrial influence on man.  Using the old Paris Meridian, this lies exactly at 33.33 degrees north and 33.33 degrees east.  It is also 2012 miles from the equator and 2012 miles from the Paris Meridian. The Paris Meridian is the meridian to which many ancient structures are aligned.  The number of nautical miles in 33.33 degrees of the earth is 2012.9.  This corresponds to the year, month day that (December 21, 2012) the ancient Mayans believed their calendar would end.

Many believe that December 21, 2012 is the date that the 'sons of God' will return to earth and establish a new world order.  They will be led by a powerful 'unearthly' ruler.  Will this be the return of the Nephilim through dimensional gates or 'stargates'?  Will this be the awaited antichrist? Do Nephilim need space craft to enter this dimension? Was Roswell one such craft?

Masons believe that this 'new age' or 'new world order' will come out of chaos. Is 'Chaos' beginning now? Will it get more and more chaotic than it is in 2008?

Do Masons believe that this powerful unearthly ruler will give them a leadership role in this coming 'New World Order' because they have been such good followers?

Reference: Nephilim Stargates - the year 2012 and the return of the Watchers, by Thomas R. Horn

“Masonry makes no profession of Christianity…but looks forward to the time when the labor of our ancient brethren shall be symbolized by the erection of a spiritual temple…in which there shall be one altar and one worship; one common altar of Masonry on which the Veda, Shastra, Sade, Zend-Avesta, Koran and Holy Bible shall lie…and at whose shrine the Hindu, the Persian, the Assyrian, the Chaldean, the Egyptian, the Chinese, the Mohammedan, the Jew, and the Christian may kneel…” ('The Kentucky Monitor,' Fellowcraft Degree, p.95)

Masons pass unnoticed by the general public. But this wasn't always so.  In 1827, the United States witnessed the birth of a third political party. This had never happened before. The new party offered America its first alternative to the two dominant political groups. Like so many third parties to come, this one had a rather narrowly-focused platform. It was dedicated to countering the malevolent and subversive influence of the international cabal known to the world as Freemasonry. It was named the Anti-Masonic Party, and the Anti-Masons were well aware that theirs was an uphill battle.

In 1830, John Quincy Adams  was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives on the Anti-Mason Party ticket.
  In 1832, the Anti-Masonic Party managed to elect Millard Fillmore to Congress, but their candidate for President received only seven votes in the Electoral College.


Letters on Freemasonry by John Quincy Adams

Letters on Freemasonry, by our 6th President, John Quincy Adams, first published in 1833, is finally back in print. Until now, it was nearly impossible for the general public to obtain a copy of this fascinating book.

John Quincy Adams, a devout Christian, was probably America's most intelligent President.  He spoke and wrote 7 languages.  He mastered the Latin, Greek, French, Dutch, and Spanish languages.  He also studied law, and graduated from Harvard University in 1787 second in his class, with high honors.  Adams was a determined opponent of the secret society and fraternity of Freemasonry, the Masonic Lodge.

President Adams was convinced Freemasonry was Luciferian, noxious, detrimental and highly evil.  So convinced was Adams of the devilish and negative effects of Freemasonry in the affairs of men that the former President of the United States helped to found the Anti-Mason Political Party. In 1830, he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives on the Anti-Mason Party ticket. 

It was the tragic murder of Captain William Morgan by a group of Masons in the state of New York in the year 1826 that further heightened Adams’ sense of urgency to warn of the dangers of the Masonic Lodge. Morgan, an ex-Mason, had revealed some of the secrets of the Masons—oaths, handshakes and ritual trappings, etc. In retaliation, he was ritually murdered in a particularly gruesome manner, and his lifeless, mutilated body abandoned in a lake.

William Morgan statue
This is a statue honoring Captain William Morgan, erected in Batavia, New York by a Christian group opposed to secret societies. Engraved on the monument are these words: "Sacred to the memory of Wm. Morgan, a native of Virginia, a Capt. in the War of 1812, a respectable citizen of Batavia, and a martyr to the freedom of writing, printing and speaking the truth. He was abducted from near this spot in the year 1826, by Freemasons and murdered for revealing the secrets of their order."



The facts of Morgan’s murder were subsequently covered up by lawful authorities, reputed themselves to be Masons. When evidence ensued that the Masonic Society had assisted the culprits responsible for Morgan’s death to elude capture and escape punishment, the event caused a national scandal.

LYING & COVERING UP IS EXPECTED OF A FREEMASON:

The Handbook of Freemasonry (page 183) says to Master Masons:

"You must conceal all crimes of your brother Masons...and should you be summoned as a witness against a brother Mason be always sure to shield him... It may be perjury to do this, it is true, but you're keeping your obligations"

The Character, Claims, and Practical Workings of Freemasonry 

A man named Henry L. Valance allegedly confessed to his part in the murder in 1848 and his deathbed confession is recounted in chapter two of Reverend C. G. Finney's book The Character, Claims, and Practical Workings of Freemasonry.

Read Reverend Finney's exposure/book about Masonry at the above link.  Pay Particular attention Rev Finney's Chapter 10, entitled: "Perverse and Profane Use of The Holy Bible"
 

"Freemasonry is deceptive and fraudulent...Its promise is light—its performance is darkness."

-President John Quincy Adams


"Masonry ought forever to be abolished. It is wrong—essentially wrong—a seed of evil, which can never produce any good."

-President John Quincy Adams

Masonry's Use of the Bible in their little Satanic clubhouses:
 

Adams warned that the Lodge’s use of the Bible should, to a trained Christian, raise red flags.

“If the candidate has been educated to a sincere and heart-felt reverence for religion and the Bible, and if he exercises his reason, he knows that all the tales of Jachin and Boaz, of Solomon’s Temple, of Hiram Abiff and Jubela, Jubelo and Jubeluem, are impostures–poisons poured into the perennial fountain of truth–traditions exactly resembling those reprobated by Jesus Christ, as making the word of God on none effect.”

The Masonic Blaspheme continues:

In the Royal Arch degree of the York Rite, the  Companion Captain  of the Host is asked if he is a Royal Arch Mason and  he replies  "I am, that I am."

If you remember, Moses, in Exodus 3:13, asked God  what name he should give to the people of Israel when they asked  what the  name of this god is that he brings to them. God replied:  "I am  that I am."


"Also, in the Scottish Rite, one of the officer's title is Rabboni which is a name given to Jesus by Mary Magdalene found in John 20:16. The using of his name and combining it with other gods  or pagan  deities would seem to make any Christian  understand  that this is certainly blasphemous.

Masons numbers have been dwindling:

The Masons, by their own statistics, have gone in the 1980's from 4 million members in the world to under 2 million members in 1996 (according to the Dallas Morning News).  Lately, the Freemasons have been advertising on the radio and television for more members (lots of dues are important to them).  These ads always play up their links to other famous Masons in U.S. history like Benjamin Franklin and George Washington.  Just as the rank and file Mason is clueless about Masonry today, these early Americans, including presidents were also clueless about Masonry before joining it.  They too were hoodwinked by oaths and promises of "Secrets" that turned out to be more frivolous nonsense in each degree.  What Masons won't tell you is that in the later years of his life, George Washington showed indifference to Masonry. He even sought to distance himself from Masonry.  From Mount Vernon George Washington wrote in 1798:

"to correct an error you have run into, of my Presiding over the English lodges in this Country. The fact is, I preside over none, nor have I been in one more than once or twice, within the last thirty years."

Benjamin Franklin who the Masons admire so well was not even a Christian.  Franklin was a Deist.  A Deist generally believes in a God who created the universe and then abandoned it.  Dr. Priestley, an intimate friend of Franklin, wrote of him: 

"It is much to be lamented that a man of Franklin's general good character and great influence should have been an unbeliever in Christianity, and also have done as much as he did to make others unbelievers" (Priestley's Autobiography)

According to Noah Webster's 1828 dictionary, a deist is "one who believes in the existence of God, but denies revealed religion; one who professes no form of religion, but follows the light of nature and reason, as his only guides in doctrine and practice; a freethinker."

Deists do not believe in the virgin birth, divinity, or resurrection of Jesus, the miracles of the Bible, or even the divine inspiration of the Bible.

Thomas Paine, a Mason, who wrote the extraordinarily successful pamphlet called "Common Sense" during the American Revolution tells us what Masons really teach and believe when he wrote about it:

Paine, like Franklin, was a Deist.  He believed in one God, but rejected all religions, saying:  "My own mind is my own church."

He also maintained an interested in Freemasonry. His pamphlet, Origin Of Free-Masonry, proposed that Masonry's embodiment of the sun worship of ancient Druidism was a legitimate alternative to Christianity. He notes that Freemasonry's god, "...Osiris and Isis, theologically represented the Supreme Being and universal Nature..."

Paine wrote in his famous "The Age of Reason": "I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of.  My own mind is my church. "

Karl Marx, Lenin and Trotsky, were all Freemasons.  Essentially these three were all dysfunctional losers who were employed by the Illuminist bankers to hoodwink the masses. Lenin for example had been an unsuccessful lawyer who had only six cases in which he defended shoplifters. He lost them all. A short time later he gave up the law to become a highly paid revolutionary.

Lenin declared: "Peace means quite simply the domination of Communism over the entire world." His reign of terror caused nine million deaths but you never see him compared to Hitler. 1.7 million people were murdered in Russia during the 1918-1919 period, including 300,000 priests.

"A river of blood flowed through Russia". "According to official Soviet Reports, 1,695,904 people were executed from January 1921 to April 1922. Among these victims were bishops, professors, doctors, officers, policemen, lawyers, civil servants, writers...Their crime was 'anti social thinking' "

Christians step out of the light into a new false (Mason) Religion:
F
or those Christian Masons who doubt they have stepped out of Christianity, you need to read what the great mason occultist Albert Pike writes:  "Every Masonic Lodge is a Temple of Religion; and its teachings are instruction in religion." (Morals and Dogma, pg. 213) .  Regardless to claims to the contrary, Masons are clearly embedded in a false mystical religious system of salvation through works.  Any "God" will do in this Masonic religion, because the Lodge teaches the heresy that it isn't God who saves one's soul anyhow: it's one's own good works.

Freemasons insist Freemasonry is not a religion. However, it is strange that the room they meet in is referred to as a ‘temple’, the seat the Worshipful Master (the chairman for that year) sits on is referred to as an ‘altar’ and the ceremonies end with the phrase ‘so mote it be’ - the same words used in major satanic rituals. A blue lodge always has an altar. Altars are always associated with religious worship and sacrifice. This calls an important question to mind. What does "Worshipful Master" mean? Doesn't it mean what it says --that the so-called Worshipful Master of the Masons is to be worshipped? Shouldn't only Jesus be worshipped? But no, Masons say ALL religions are equal.  Christians, see the light!

The lie...
“…salvation by faith and the vicarious atonement were not taught as now interpreted, by Jesus, nor are these doctrines taught in the esoteric scriptures.  They are later and ignorant perversions of the original doctrines.” (J. D. Buck, “Mystic Masonry,” p.57)

"Acacian: a term signifying a Mason who by living in strict obedience to obligations and precepts of the fraternity is free from sin." (A. Mackey, "Lexicon of Freemasonry, page 16). Strict obedience includes not witnessing about Jesus or even mentioning His name in the Lodge.

 
The truth...
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.(John 3:16)

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life." (John 6:47)

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)


Freemasonry: The Trojan Horse In the Church
by Baptist Pastor Pierce Dodson
 

"Freemasonry is Satan's Trojan horse, and it is in the Church of our day; and all too often people won't listen to the warnings which are being sounded." 

Its true nature is not readily apparent as many fine people do belong to this organization, and of course it is involved in various charitable activities which also give it an appearance of being an upstanding organization. But there is a saying that you can't judge a book by its "cover" (how appropriate a word in this case), and Freemasonry must be understood not by its cover but by the philosophy, teachings, and spiritual forces which lie behind it. What I have to say is not meant as an attack on the men who belong to the lodge. I am not an anti-mason, but I am against Freemasonry, a philosophical system which is opposed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

At the Heart of Masonry is Lucifer:

High level Masons believe that Lucifer never fell to earth and that Lucifer is really God, and refer to Yahweh by the name of ‘Adonay.’ 

Masons say that it is Yahweh that is the god of evil, because he forces men to be subservient to his repressive dictates. Masonic books given to handpicked members of the 32nd and 33rd Degrees, say that Jesus was an impostor, and that Lucifer is the true God. The Masons have their own Luciferian based calendar. Where ours is based on the years before (B.C.) and after (A.D.) the birth of Christ, theirs counts its years with the suffix A.L. means Anno Lucis or ‘Year of Light (Lucifer).  Masons usually refer to God with the vague and general term “Deity.” The god of Masonry can be one of their own choosing, spoken generically as the “The Great Architect of the Universe.” Human nature is also worshipped by some Masons as “Deity,” as are Knowledge and Reason.

“In his private petitions a man may petition God or Jehovah, Allah or Buddha, Mohammed or Jesus; he may call upon the God of Israel or the First Great Cause. In the Masonic Lodge he hears petition to the Great Architect of the Universe, finding his own deity under that name. A hundred paths may wind upward around a mountain; at the top they meet”. (Carl H. Claudy, “Introduction to Freemasonry”, p.38).
Freemasonry has a plan of salvation which is based on imitation of their savior, Hiram Abiff...  New candidates are told that Masonry is based on Hiram Abiff who lost the "secret name of God" while he was building the great pyramid.  As punishment he was entombed alive in the pyramid.  Masons think that salvation refers to being brought from the material to the spiritual; i.e., when man returns to "his forgotten inherent spirituality." Masons believe that the degree of Master Mason is symbolical of old age, which allows a person to happily reflect on a well-spent life and to "die in the hope of a glorious immortality." Because they deny the reality of sin, Masons see no need of salvation in the Biblical sense. They see salvation as a step-by-step enlightenment, which comes through initiation into the Masonic degrees and their mysteries. 
 
The fundamental of Freemasonry is the idea that there are no knowable ideas, only mysteries which some people have been given the key to and others haven't. Masons think God likes some and doesn't like others - and that's all there is to it.  And we know who we are, and we know who you are.
Early on in Freemasonry it was always white protestants (their) god likes.  Later, to increase dues, it became, god (their god) likes everyone, with the exception of: women, children, blind, deaf, lame, poor, retarded, slaves or Negroes.  Of course the poor cannot become Masons, because they can't pay the dues.  Is it a coincidence that those whom Masonry rejects are among the same ones that Jesus was happy to minister to?

During the initiation for the Master Mason, the Master instructs the kneeling candidate with his hand on God's Holy Word to affirm, and the candidate does affirm that the lodge in which he is kneeling is erected to God and dedicated to the holy order of St. John. Remember this is said in and of every Master Masons' lodge. But is this true? No, indeed, it is mere mockery. The words are a mere profane form. Does not every Freemason know this?

This, and all the following oaths of Masonry, are administered and taken as additions to all the previous oaths which the candidate has taken. (See the oath)
 
All that is wicked and profane in the former oaths is indorsed and reaffirmed in this and in every succeeding oath. Thus Freemasons proceed to pile oath upon oath in a manner most shocking and revolting. And is this a Christian institution? Is this obedience to Him who has said "swear not at all?"

You will observe that in this oath the candidate also swears, that "a Master Mason's secrets, given to me in charge as such," * * "shall remain as secure and inviolate in my breast as in his own, murder and treason excepted, and they left to my own election." Now, this section of the oath is very broad, and may be understood to cover secrets of every description. But to put it beyond all doubt whether crimes are to be kept secret, murder and treason are excepted, showing that the oath has respect particularly to concealing the crimes of a Master Mason. He may commit Theft, Robbery, Arson, Adultery, Rape, or any crime whatever, Murder and Treason excepted, and however well the commission of these crimes may be known to a Master Mason, if a Master Mason has committed them, he is under oath to conceal them.

 
Even within Masonry the spirit of elitism, the principle of the superiority of the "chosen few," prevails.  Those Blue Lodge Masons who lack the money cannot pursue the higher degrees and the Shrine. And, even for those who can afford the higher degrees and the Shrine, there are offices and positions closed to some who haven't the wealth, nice home or social position required."   book "The Deadly Deception", page 148

Ex 33 Degree Mason Jim Shaw says that this promised "Light" is never found.  "The Candidate receiving the 32nd Degree is told he still has not reached the light".  Reference: his book "The Deadly Deception", page 156
 
This never ending search for more light only culminates with more dues being paid to the Lodge and nothing else; except the realization everything one is taught in the first 3 degrees is a lie. 
 
Masons - Masters of Denial:

Beware: Masons have mastered the "denial technique".  All those who write critically of Freemasonry are "anti's"; and all "anti's" are frauds, liars, zealots, or extremists and cannot be accepted. Their other main tactic is: "baffle them with bee's wax."  According to Masonic law and tradition, All non-Masons are, "profane persons".  This includes the Mason's wife, children and parents, unless they, too are Masons.

"The receptivity of the great masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, and their power of forgetting is enormous." --Adolph Hitler, "Mein Kampf"
 
The rank and file Mason hasn't got a clue that the goal of Masonry is the same as Satan's and Islam -- world domination.  Masons seek this through control of currency, control of major corporations including banking, media, entertainment, and communications.  They also work towards this through control of educators and textbooks, and most importantly the infiltration of religions. Major efforts at infiltration have also been focused upon the Catholic (Universal) Church.  
 
In 1884, Pope Leo XIII said there is a battle raging between "the kingdom of God" and the "kingdom of Satan," and that "partisans of evil...led on or assisted by...Freemasons" are "boldly rising up against God Himself."  The ultimate purpose of Freemasonry, Leo said, is "the utter overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced, and the substitution of a new state of things in accordance with their ideas, of which the foundations and Laws shall be drawn from mere naturalism."  Fundamental to Masonry and to naturalists Leo said, is that human nature and human reason "ought in all things to be mistress and and guide."  Sincere adherents to Masonry, he continued, "care little for duties to God, or pervert them by erroneous and vague opinions.  For they deny that anything has been taught by God; they allow no dogma of religion or truth which cannot be understood by human intelligence, nor any teacher who ought to be believed by reason of his authority."
 
Leo XIII also said; Masons "teach the great error of this age --that regard for religion should be held as an indifferent matter, and that all religions are alike."

The homosexual agenda, now supported by many Protestant denominations who are now in apostasy, is seen as a means of undermining the faith of Catholics. Freemasons support and promote this agenda. They also support the breakdown of religion through the use of media that is pro-immorality, pro-abortion, pro-homosexuality, pro-pornography, and pro-population control.  This latter is already seen as destroying Europe, North America, Japan and Israel through negative natural replacement birth rates.

Most new candidates to Masonry also have no idea that what they are told initially are lies.  At the heart of Masonry is a secret Luciferian doctrine which a Mason only comes to understand as he reaches the higher levels.  New candidates are falsely taught that the beginnings of Freemasonry are lost in the "mists of time". Beware: That is just a clever lie candidates easily accept, to be deceived.

Manly Palmer Hall, a great authority on Masonry, writes, "When the Mason ... has learned the mystery of his Craft, the seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands. ..." (Manly Palmer Hall, The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, p. 48). 

 

Albert Pike, that preeminent Masonic authority, says that Masons in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd degrees, known as the Blue Degrees, are intentionally misled by false interpretations.  Albert Pike's "Morals and Dogma" is handed out to 4th Degree Masons.

"is intentionally misled by false interpretations" of Masonic symbolism. "It is not intended that he shall understand them; but it is intended that he shall imagine he understands them"

The truth is reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry (those of the 32nd and 33rd degrees- Morals and Dogma, pages 818-819).  Although they have 33 degrees, only 32 can be earned. The reason is that those who are given the rank of 33rd will be selected from those who have already been 33rd degree masons. They want to be sure that they are choosing someone who will be "one of the boys".
 

“And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”
(Genesis  3: 4-5)

Albert Pike, the Boston-born one time Confederate Civil War General, and some say a leader of the Klu Klux Klan  -- intended the degrees leading up to the thirteenth degree to serve as a training school to gradually condition and prepare the candidate for the ultimate acceptance of Luciferian initiation. there are many sections of Pike's book Morals and Dogma which show that Pike was very interested in the occult the ‘Luciferian philosophy’.

In Masonry, every thing has a double meaning. Thus, the Mason candidate is practicing occultism throughout his degrees without knowing it. False interpretations are given to keep him from suspecting the institution to be anything less than noble and upright in purpose.

This deception, this false interpretation is called allegory. Allegory is defined as; something where the language is one thing and the meaning is another.

Masons practice the virtues of brotherly love, forgiveness, and charity--on the surface.  They do this as a ploy, to make their satanic religion appear acceptable and sugar coated --- to the community. 

Belief in
God (by whatever name he is known to them) is a condition of membership.  To receive the benefits of Freemasonry every candidate has to confess his belief in one, eternal and true God, creator and ruler of the universe, and in the immortality of the soul.  No candidate for Masonry, however, is to be asked for the particular opinion of his religious belief, so Lucifer as this prerequisite god is quite acceptable.  Its members are taught masonry's precepts by a series of ritual dramas, which follow ancient forms and use stonemasons' customs and tools as allegorical guides.  Freemasonry is deep into the occult, and it is also connected with the cult known as Rosicrucian. 

The Main Library of the Supreme Council 33° of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, S.J., U.S.A., the Mother Supreme Council of the World, Washington D.C., is dedicated to none other than Confederate General Albert Pike, the KKK's Chief of "Judiciary". This building is known to Masons as the "House of the Temple. Its entrance is adorned in Egyptian iconography.


 

Most Shriners are decent guys, who do bow to,
and make pledges to the pagan Islamic god Allah


Shriner Fez

Note the Islamic Religious Symbols
- Muslim sword &
crescent moon

 


The Shriner is given a red fez with an Islamic sword and crescent moon jewel on the front of it.

This sword emblem originates from 7th century Arabia when the Moslems, under the leadership of Muhammad (aka: Mohammed), slaughtered all Christians and Jews who would not bow down to the pagan moon god Allah. It is a symbol of subjugation.

The Shriners appear to have begun innocently enough; except for their link to and allegiance to the pagan moon god (note the crescent emblem) Allah. 

The Illustrious Grand High Priest swears in new members who put their hands on a copy of the Muslim Koran.  Can we imagine a Christian preacher swearing off the God of Israel by embracing the pagan Allah?  They do! The initiate swears a long oath that culminates in a typical Masonic vow of secrecy unto death., and it includes "and may Allah, the god of the Arab Moslem and Mohameddan support me. Amen."  Shriners obligate themselves by making unholy oaths such as allowing the piercing of their eyeballs with a three-edged blade, and the flaying of their feet if they should reveal their Shriner "secrets", which are all nonsense and inconsequential to begin with.  Shriners worship of the false god Allah, as the god of "our" fathers.  Shriners are known as the Ancient Order of Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (acronym: A.A.O.N.M.S.). The acronym can be rearranged in a cutsy way to spell: A. M.A.S.O.N. The organizational unit of the Shrine is the Temple or a Mosque. 
The only religious requirement for Shriners are that all Shriners must be Masons, and they must profess a belief in a supreme being (of their own choice).

An Actor, William Florence and a juggler and magician Dr. Walter M. Fleming began the Shriners in the early 1870's.  Doctor Fleming devised the rituals, intended as a parody of Islam. He died in 1913 and left his family penniless, having spent all of his money to gain Masonic medals and decrees.

The disgusting blood red Shriner (Mason) Fez and oath to the pagan Allah:

The Masonic Shriners wear a red hat known as a Fez named after a town in Morocco, where in 980 AD, 50,000 Christians, including women and children, were brutally murdered by the Muslims. As the streets ran red with the Christians’ blood from the massacre, the Muslims dipped their hats in that blood as a testimony to Allah. The red Fez symbolizes the slaughter of Christians in that town. The Masons still wear the red Fez adorned with the Islamic crescent symbol. Among the oaths of the Masonic Shriner organization is one that says, “...and may Allah the God of Arab, Muslim, and Mohammedan, the God of our fathers support me to the entire fulfillment of the same. Amen, Amen, Amen.”

The fez derives its name from the place where it first was manufactured commercially, the city of Fez, in Morocco.  Some say, the red color is to memorialize the color of blood, and the Muslim victories over Christians.  The City of  Fez formerly had a monopoly on the manufacture of the fez  headdress because it controlled the juice of the berry used to color the fezzes.  The color red may represent the blood of innocent victims, like Christians and Jews who Islam plans on subjugating. 

There are Christians, all over the world, who even today, suffer greatly and some have even given up their lives because they refuse to compromise their faith in Christ. And yet, professing Christians who are involved in the highest ranks of Freemasonry (Shriners) honor the persecution of Christians.  A Shriner honors Islam and its symbols.  At meetings, Shriners utter things like: "And, with the Koran (Qur'an) on the altar, we sealed our solemn oath in the name of Allah, the God of Arab, Moslem and Mohammedan, the God of our fathers."

A Shriner traditionally prays by facing toward Mecca, and he must make a blood oath of allegiance to the pagan Allah as his god - and the blood-thirsty Mohammed (who cringed at even the sight of a cross) as his prophet.  Remember Christians; Allah is that non-existent god of Islam who does not acknowledge Jesus as his Son, and he doesn't acknowledge the work Jesus did on the cross.  He even diabolically lies that Jesus never even died on a cross...

Who is this Allah that the Shriners are involved with?
 

The true God (Yahweh/Jehovah/I am/Jesus) is on record as being against the god Muslims call Allah (who is probably a fallen angel/god of fortresses). Only a demon would lie that God has no Son, and that Jesus never died on a cross outside the gates of Jerusalem. Islam's 'holy' book makes those demonic claims. If Jesus didn't die for us, we have no hope whatsoever.
 

FOOTNOTES FROM ex-33 degree Freemason, JIM SHAW'S BOOK, "The Deadly Deception: Freemasonry Exposed by One of Its Top Leaders" Page 76
Every Shriner, kneeling before the Koran takes this oath in the name of Allah, and acknowledges this pagan god of vengeance as his own ("the God of our fathers" they recite). And, in the ritual, he acknowledges Islam, the declared blood-enemy of Christianity, as the one true path. ("Whoso seeketh Islam earnestly seeks true direction" they recite).  How it must break the heart of the true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - to hear these words from the lips of His own children; particularly the leaders of His church. 

The Muslim Qur'an (Koran) is literally dripping in evil!

This demonically inspired document goes out of its way to lie about Jesus; thus negating the salvation Jesus made possible. Islam is uniquely at odds with Christianity in all its major dogmas.  As an example, the "god" of Islam created and inspired sin.  The Qur'an (Koran) says that this "god of vengeance", Allah both created and inspires sin, right there  in the Qur'an.  Whereas the real holy God who cannot sin, took our sins on Himself.  Islam says if you believe God came to earth as a man, as Jesus did, then you will go to Hell.  Doctrinally, wouldn't the one who created sin be an unholy sinner himself?

Islam is the religion of anger and hatred.  It is an anti-freedom system, which seeks to ultimately control the entire world.

Additionally, only a demon or fallen angel would insist its followers make never ending war on non-believers, as this impersonal "god" Allah does.  1 in every 55 verses in the Qur'an incites Muslims to make war on non-Muslims.  The Qur'an, is in fact a satanic blueprint for the art of deception, doubletalk, double-dealing and treachery. The word love is conspicuously missing from the Muslim Qur'an.

1290 & 1335 days of Daniel
(Daniel 12:11-12)

Proof the true God of the Bible and prophecy (Yahweh/Jehovah/I am/Jesus) considers Islam as an evil  pagan religion. He is disgusted with those monstrosity's on the Temple Mount.

 

The "abomination of desolation" already happened exactly on schedule (Daniel's 1290 day prophecy).  When the pagan Islamic Dome of the Rock and the al-Aksa Mosque were built on the temple mount, it made the temple mount "desolated" or contaminated.  This was built during the 685 to 705 AD period.

The formula for changing 1290 old testament 360 day years into our 365.24 day solar years is: 1290 x .9857. 

1335 - the "double check" number:

Amazingly enough the 2nd figure (1335) the prophet Daniel gave serves much like a double check (Checksum).  Subtract this figure from 1948 when Israel was reborn after 2500 years and you get another significant year for the Jews, Christians and all of western civilization. This figure plops exactly onto the year Muhammad of Islam, the False Prophet died and was lowered into a grave in Medina in the year 632 A.D. 

A little after midday of 8 June, 632, the 62 year old Muhammad died in the house of his wife A'isha who he married when she was 6 (or 7) years old.  Muslim historians back to the early 800's A.D. tell us that Muhammad consummated his marriage with A'isha when she was only 9  - when he was in his 50's. See the Muslim references for this: here

("Whoso seaketh Islam earnestly seeks true direction.")  How it must break the heart of God to hear these words (spoken about a pagan god) from the lips of His own children, particularly leaders of His church.  Reference, "The Deadly Deception", Page 76

The blood oath of secrecy represents the most contentious display of religion in the Shriners.

The Encyclopedia of Fraternities, by Albert Stevens, contains this description of the macabre punishment a Shriner agrees to if he ever transgress his obligations to the mystic Shrine: "In willful violation whereof may I incur the fearful penalty of having my eyeballs pierced to the centre with a three-edged blade, my feet flayed, and I be forced to walk the hot sands upon the sterile shores of the Red Sea until the flaming sun shall strike me with livid plague, and may Allah, the god of Arab, Moslem and Mohammedan, the god of our fathers, support me to the entire fulfillment of the same. Amen. Amen. Amen."

Shriners are a pagan Islamic branch of masonry who have reached higher "levels" in Freemasonry.  Islamic symbols, including of world conquest are everywhere in Shriner Temples.  As a Mason goes through the 32 degrees of the Scottish rite, he ends up giving worship to every Egyptian pagan god, the gods of Persia, gods of India, Greek gods, Babylonian gods, and others.

The Blue Lodge Masonic Degrees:

Men who join the Masonic orders undergo several initiations -- as many as thirty-three -- of which the third degree is the one most commonly attained. Candidates of this 3rd degree undergo a mock death and resurrection that simulates the death and resurrection of a legendary character, Hiram Abiff. From the very beginning new candidates are lied to as to what the symbols mean and who they are really serving (Lucifer). Like New Agers, Masons are working towards a one world government and a one world religion at the top.  Yet because of their desire to "belong", the new candidates haven't got a clue what is happening. 

When a freemason is first initiated into the Third Degree he is struck on the forehead in the dark.  Next, he falls back either into a coffin or onto a coffin shape design. Then his fellow masons lift him up When he opens his eyes he is confronted with a human skull and crossed bones. This initiation places this man both into the cult and under a curse, both literally and metaphorically; unbeknownst to him.

Masons think the day will come when all of the Ancient Mysteries will be revealed to all those dwelling on the earth. In the Masonic Legend of Hiram Abiff, that day will be marked by his resurrection to rule the world.  According to the Bible, Hiram Abiff will most certainly rule. He will come as Hiram Abiff to the Mason, Crishna to the Hindu, Imam Mahdi to the Muslim, or Sosiosch to the Zoroastrian.  But in the Word of God, he is called the Beast (Antichrist).

History of Masonry:

Freemason theology, like Knights Templar theology is not compatible with Christianity.  Although Masons will admit to a history only as far back as 1717, research indicates that the same Masonic rituals and beliefs were in use by the Knights Templers. The Lodge idea came from a fraternal beginning.  For a period of 700 years (900 A.D. to 1600 A.D.), England went through a period of cathedral building. Masons (men in construction trades who specialized in brick or stone) formed guilds or craft organizations for self protection. In current terminology we would call them "unions." At that time structures called "lodges" were used by workers as shelter. Later this became the basic unit of Freemasonry. It is for this reason that most symbols are founded on the tools and practices of the building profession.  Their rituals are mostly occult, with building trade rituals mixed in. These stonemasons were called "free masons" because they were not indentured servants which local guild masons were at the time.  Before the Enlightenment years masons were Christian. That all changed with the formation of the English lodge in London in 1717, however.  Two early documents Harleian MS. No 1942 and the Antiquity MS. documents of 1670 and 1682, respectively - included prayers invoking the Blessed Trinity.

Temple Church in London

The London Headquarters of the Knights Templars was Temple Church, which still stands.  It lies 'off street' between Fleet Street and the Thames River.  This building, which was consecrated in 1185 A.D. by the patriarch of Jerusalem saw most of the Knights Templars' new recruits pass through them.  Here secret rituals took place, that are not so unlike present day Masonry rituals.  Templar Recruits were first initiated as monks at Temple Church.  In addition to the church, the new compound originally contained residences, military training facilities, and recreational grounds for the military brethren and novices, who were not permitted to go into the city without the permission of the Master of the Temple.

The Knights
Templars were initially established to protect Christian pilgrims en route the Holy Land.  The Templars reached the zenith of their might in the 13th century, when they wielded great power both in the Holy Land and in Europe. But when the Holy Lands fell back into Muslim hands in 1291, the Templars lost their apparent reason for existence.  Many Templars gathered great wealth in the Holy Lands and actually became powerful lenders of money in Europe.  Various powers, including the pope, made plans to consolidate the Templarswith their rival order, the Knights Hospitallers. The Templars, perhaps overconfident of their prestige, did not maneuver very capably in this situation. On the morning of Friday the 13th, in April of the year 1307 AD, just before dawn, the King of France had all his constables descend at once on all Templar centers in France.  It is from this, we probably get the tradition of Friday the 13th being unlucky.  Good Friday was certainly not unlucky for Christians.  That day Christ took our sins upon Himself.  Most of the Templars were rounded up, tortured and executed.  Most also had their wealth stolen by the King of France. The Order of the Temple (Templars) was officially dissolved by papal bull in May of 1312.
 
The last Grand Wizard of the Knights Templars who Masons admire and have ritualistic ties to was the slain Jacques de Molay.  Masons probably deny their ties with the Knights Templars because the last Grand Wizard (Jacques de Molay) of the Knights Templars denied Christ in front of both Pope Clement and the King of France.  Yet, if de Molay did admit guilt, in fairness to him, it was probably under torture.  He is said to have recanted his admission, prior to being burned at the stake.  Being associated with the Templars, many who admitted the guilt of blaspheming the Lord, would make the Masons very unpopular, regardless of how many Christian sounding names their Masonic degrees contained.  The 27th Masonic Degree, however,  tells of the false condemnation of the Knights Templar, and the importance of the denial of the cross.
 
Knights Templars and Masons at the highest levels deny the cross, and that Jesus was the Son of God.  Although, Masonic rituals have often shown a cross with the letters "JN" (Jesus Nazareus) and "JBM" (Jacques Burgundus Molay) on it as equals (as if they were the First and Second Messiahs).  Both think much as Jehovah Witnesses do.  They believe in Jehovah (Yahweh), but deny Christ and His death on the cross for us as our way to salvation.
 
Have the pagan Mason's captured the Ark of the Covenant?
The earliest written copies of Masonic ritual state unequivocally that the ancient masons found the Ark of the Covenant hidden in a cave under the site of King Solomon's temple.  The Knights Templar's quartered in the Al Aqsa mosque on Temple Mount. There are many stories told that the Templar's spent the first 10 years or so of their existence digging under Temple Mount.
 
At the levels above the highest in masonry, reports indicate that masons toy with demon possession and spirit channeling.  Many Satanists are also drawn into freemasonry.
 
In his book Masonry "Beyond the Light", William Schnoebelen (now a saved Christian) talks about his experiences as first a Satanist and then a Mason who passed through nearly all the Mason Degrees, including some that American Masons are unaware of; such as degrees in Masonry like the Egyptian rites of Masonry and the Paladin. During his initiation into Palladium Masonry William sadly admits to standing with Masons, some who were also Satanists and chanting; "Glory and Love for Lucifer! Hatred! Hatred! Hatred! to God accursed! accursed! accursed!". He says that hashish provides some of their "illumination", taking after the 1st "Illuminati" 18th century Mason Adam Weishaupt.  An 'Illuminatus' is a Master Mason who has received all the “light” Masonry can bestow. He is beyond 33°. Such people are known as Masters or Masters of the Temple.
 
In their 32nd degree, Masons are told that the name for god is composed of 3 Hindu gods: Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva.  Siva (Shiva) is a synonym for Satan.  Satanist Anton LaVey shows Shiva as a synonym for Satan in his satanic bible.

IS MODERN DAY FREEMASONRY AN "ILLUMINATI" OFFSHOOT?

Historical records seem to the "Illuminati" emergence as a united society of some kind in Frankfurt, Germany when, in 1773, one Meyer Amschel Rothschild assembled 12 of his most influential Jewish friends whom he later referred to as the "elders of Zion" to convince them that if they got their resources together, they could rule the world. He told them he had found someone - Adam Weishaupt - who had incredible intellect and ingenuity to lead the organization.  Meyer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812) played a key role in advancing this monstrous conspiracy. He was a follower of the occult Cabbalism (or Lucifer worship) that is the basis of Illuminism and Freemasonry. (See Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.)

Funded by Rothschild and guided by a mysterious occultist named Kolmer, Weishaupt formed the "Order of Perfectibilists", which was later known as the Illuminati. Some claim that this founding date is the origin for the date of the Communist May Day observance. He adopted the name of "Brother Spartacus" within the order.  It was to direct a worldwide attack on all religion and government. It wanted a Universal Republic or a New World Order.

The actual character of the society was determined by its traditionalist enemies to be an elaborate network of spies and counter-spies, though with the high goal of ensuring virtue. Each isolated cell of initiates reported to a superior, whom they did not know, a party structure that was later effectively adopted by some later groups, including more recently by the early Ba'ath party in Syria and Iraq.

Weishaupt was initiated into Freemasonry Lodge "Theodor zum guten Rath", at Munich in Bavaria. He worked at first to divest Freemasonry of its pseudo-historical mumbo-jumbo and reform it.


A book by Father Adolf Faroni of the Society of Don Bosco cites historical records indicating that the inner circle of the Order "was structured around the pentagram", the symbol of the blazing star Sirius. It was initially made up of five men: Kolmer, Francis Dashwood who founded the Satanic Hellfire Club, Alphone Donatien DeSade from whom the word "sadism" was derived, Mayer Rothschild, and Weishaupt.

Then they began recruiting members initially referred to as "minerval" who could advance to the order of "illuminati minor". The latter would have to prove absolute devotion to the order to be able to advance to the top-most circle of initiates called "illuminati major", a position just below the Rex which, soon after the order was founded, was held by Weishaupt.

Said Wieshaupt: "The power of the Order must be turned to the advantage of its members. All must be assisted. They must be preferred to all persons otherwise of equal merit. Money, services, honor, goods, and blood must be expended for the fully proved Brethren." From Germany, Freemasonry under the leadership of the illuminati spread to other countries.

Weishaupt's radical rationalism, sweeping away nations and religions, private property and marriage, with the vocabulary used by the French Revolution, was not likely to appeal. Weishaupt's writings were intercepted in 1784.  They were interpreted by the Bavarian government as seditious.  His Society was banned by Bavaria's government in 1784, and Weishaupt lost his position at the University of Ingolstadt before fleeing Bavaria.

In the latter part of the 18th century, the freemasons had mapped out a plot for a revolution in France. A freemason concocted a story that while the people of France were suffering from poverty, Queen Marie Antoinette had purchased a diamond necklace costing about $1.5 million. The Duke of Orleans then bought up a huge quantity of bread and grain in France to create artificial famine. This was followed by the Siege of Bastille on July 14, 1789. In November 1793, priests all over France were massacred as the Feasts of Reason were celebrated in churches in Paris.

It came to a point that entire France was in chaos. The freemasons felt it was time to have a "man on a white horse" to reign again over the country and eventually spread his power over the rest of Europe towards the creation of a Universal Republic. Napoleon Bonaparte was thus initiated thrice into Masonic French lodges.

After the Napoleonic Wars, freemasons in France assumed Europe would be ready for peace, so they set up the Congress of Vienna in an attempt to create the first League of Nations. However, Czar Nicolas Romanov of Russia went against this. Freemasons determined to eliminate him, and they did, when the czar and his entire family were executed at the height of the Bolshevik revolution in their country in 1917. It will be interesting to note that the Bolsheviks or Russian revolutionaries called themselves Spartacusts, which was the illuminati pseudonym of Weishaupt.

A century after his death, occultist interest in Weishaupt and the Bavarian Illuminati picked up, through the writings of Aleister Crowley (1875-1947). Modern adepts trace the imagery of symbolism like the eye in the pyramid, and embrace the secrecy of the Illuminati traditions but ignore the specifics of Weishaupt's published essays and correspondence.

Crowley claimed in his 'Confessions...' that in 1904 he had been raised (taken the 3rd degree) in the Craft at the Anglo-Saxon Lodge No. 343 in Paris


Crowley in his later years

A study in contradictions, Crowley was a pioneering mountain climber, a pioneering homoerotic poet, a pioneering ritual magician, a heroin addict, a sleazy womanizer, a closet homosexual, a vocal feminist, a racist, a German collaborator, a British secret agent, a civil rights advocate, a talented amateur artist, a legitimately profound mystic and an infuriating charlatan.  Some claim that Crowley was a 33 Sovereign Grand Inspector General of the Scottish Rite and also held the 95 of the Rite of Memphis and the 90 of the Rite of Mizraim. Crowley had been given the title by the Media of "the wickedest man alive". It can be documented that Crowley partook of and taught drug induced rituals that included perverted sexual acts, homosexuality, bestiality, and the eating of bodily emissions and excrement. Crowley who advocated blood sacrifice earned his other title "The Father of Modern Satanism". 

Crowley also founded an anti-Christ religion called Thelema. Crowley, was a master Satanist of the 20th century. He advocated child sacrifice in one his published work Magick in Theory and Practice. He used children in perverted sexual rituals, and held several Masonic titles including the highest (33°) in the Ancient and Accepted Rite, and the second highest (96°) in the Ancient and Primitive Rite.

Occultists, Wiccans and Satanist are to be found at all levels of Masonry. But the Masonic levels of the Illuminati, the Ancient rites and the Supreme Council are especially likely to have them.


 

 

Masonic Apron
a symbol of defiance?

masonic apron

Almost in symbolic defiance to God, new Masons are given aprons and told it is the most precious symbol of Masonry.  Remember, in the Garden of Eden once they realized they were naked Adam and Eve sewed together an apron of fig leaves.  God was displeased with this and gave them coats made from skin.  In the 3rd degree many Masons get a silver serpent emblem for his apron.
The Blue Lodge - the neighborhood pagan temple

"The heart of Freemasonry is the Blue Lodge with its three degrees. The climactic degree (and the final one for most Masons) in the Blue Lodge is the Third, or Master Mason Degree. The heart of the Master Mason Degree, the thing that gives it both meaning and substance, is without any doubt the reenactment of the Legend of Hiram Abiff (which in realty is about Osiris the Egyptian Sun God). It is this central figure in the legend, this Hiram the 'Widow's Son,' the 'Tyrian Architect,' this 'First Grand Master' who is impersonated by every man who is initiated as a Master Mason. It is Hiram who is at the very heart of the foundation of all of Masonry…"

Once completing the three degrees of the Blue Lodge, a mason is then allowed to go into either the Scottish rite of Freemasonry which has 32 degrees or the York rite which has 13 degrees. These are advanced degrees, where you pay more dues, and expect to learn (and don't) the secrets of Freemasonry. As one progresses through the degree work of these rites, they tell you that you are on a quest to find the lost name of God.

Where Mason dues go:
The Temple of the Supreme Council of the 33rd  and Last Degree of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite stands on the east side of Northwest 16th Street, between “R” and “S” Streets in Washington, D.C. High above the entrance is an elaborate image of the Egyptian sun god, backed by radiating sun and flanked by six large golden serpents. The interior walls are also decorated with serpents. Buried inside one of its walls is the acclaimed Mason, Albert Pike, a Massachusetts Tory, went south to incite whites against the Union
during the Civil War.  Pike is also believed to have been high up in the Klu Klux Klan.


The Mason Initiation ritual
Everyone who joins the local lodge joins what is called the Blue Lodge, the meeting center, and has to go through an initiation ceremony. Every Mason, including those in our churches today, have gone through this initiation; it is the only way you can get into the lodge. The first thing that happens is that a blindfold is put on them, a noose (called a cable toll) is hung on their neck, their shirt is opened to bare their chest, and they are brought to the outer door of the lodge. There, a sharp point (of a compass or a dagger) is placed on their chest. Someone then asks, "Who comes?" to which candidate states "A poor, blind beggar looking to move from darkness to the light of Freemasonry."

The new candidate is then brought (pulled by the noose) into the Masonic lodge where they must bow at an altar. They are facing East and making the sign of the Tau cross, which has pagan significance.  Behind the altar stands a man they call the Worshipful Master of the Lodge (the leader of the lodge). Again the candidate makes his plea for Freemasonry. After answering a series of questions, the new candidate then takes a series of blood oaths and promises not to reveal the secrets of Freemasonry that he will learn -- upon having his throat cut from ear to ear.

These are some of the actual oaths a Mason must take: In the first degree of the Blue Lodge, "Binding myself under no less a penalty, than having my throat cut across, my tongue torn out from its roots and buried in the rough sands of the sea..." In the second degree, "Binding myself under no less a penalty, than that of having my left breast torn open, my heart plucked out and given as prey to the wild beasts of the field and the foul of the air..." In the third degree (Master Mason Degree), "Binding myself under no less a penalty, than that of having my body severed in twain, my bowels taken from thence and burned into ashes..."

For a Christian to go through this and to make such oaths, you need to ask: How can a follower of Jesus Christ, go to a Masonic Lodge, ask for membership, take such oaths, and say "I am lost in darkness" and I need the light of Freemasonry?

If you read First John chapter One, it says, If you claim that you are lost in darkness, the Light (of Jesus Christ) is not in you; and you are living a lie.  Christians are forbidden by Scripture to take some oaths.  Just taking these oaths, particularly blood oaths of mayhem and murder, is stepping into the "dark side".



Get used to bowing to pagan gods.
As a Mason goes through the 32 degrees of the Scottish rite, he ends up giving worship to every Egyptian pagan god, the gods of Persia, gods of India, Greek gods, Babylonian gods, and others. As you come to the 17th degree, the Masons claim that they will give you the password that will give him entrance at the judgment day to the Masonic deity, the great architect of the universe. It is very interesting that this secret password is "Abaddon".

 

in Revelation chapter 9; it says, "The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth.  The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss [the bottomless pit]...and smoke came out of the Abyss like that of a great furnace..."  (It goes on to describe those in the abyss, then continues)  They had a king over them, the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon..."  The 'angel' of the Abyss (Hell) is really the chief demon whose name is Abaddon.  Masons claim then, that the diety they worship is Abaddon!  Not God.  Not Jesus.  But the number one servant of Lucifer (Satan).

 

According to the Masonic legend, Hiram Abiff was the chief architect of the Temple built by King Solomon. Hiram was the only one on Earth who knew the secrets of a Master Mason, including the Grand Masonic Word, the name of God (the 'ineffable name'). Knowing the secrets of a Master Mason would enable the masons working on the Temple to become Master Masons and to earn higher wages. Hiram had promised to reveal the secrets of a Master Mason upon completion of the Temple.

One day Hiram went into the unfinished Holy of Holies to worship and to draw up plans for the workmen to follow the next day. As Hiram was leaving the Temple he was accosted by three fellow Masons (ruffians) in succession, who demanded that they be given the secrets before the Temple was completed. These three "ruffians" threatened and finally murdered Hiram Abiff. King Solomon sent a search team which found the body of Hiram, but was unable to raise him from the dead. Solomon himself raised and restored Hiram to life with the grip of a Master Mason. The first word which Hiram spoke was the replacement for the Grand Masonic Word, which is traditionally given to a Master Mason during his initiation.

"It is generally believed, in spite of the fact that the Masonic authorities and writers of doctrine agree that it is not only a myth, unsupported by facts, but acknowledge that it is but a retelling of Isis and Osiris…"

 

"Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God." Leviticus 19:31. Again, "A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death." Leviticus 20:27

Revelation 16:14 the prophet describes "spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth, and of the whole world."

Don't forget that the devil can work miracles (Revelation 16:14). He can do things that we never will understand. Now we can begin to understand why people have been so shaken up by the apparent appearance of dead friends via channeling, and spiritualism, etc. After 6,000 years of observing human behavior, Satan is able to counterfeit their forms and voices cleverly. At psychological moments he takes advantage of heartbroken, bereaved relatives to perpetuate his fraud.


Another Masonic Legend:
The oldest known Masonic text, the "Old Charges," which dates at least as far back as1400, sets out a legendary heritage that begins with the antediluvian patriarch Jabal, who discovered geometry ("the which Science is called Massonrie") and wrote down his findings on pillars of stone.  After Noah's Flood destroyed all human civilization, the Egyptian sage Hermes Trismegistus rediscovered this knowledge and passed it on in a lineage that includes Nimrod, Abraham, Euclid, and the 80,000 masons who were said to have worked on Solomon's Temple.
 
Masons "pander" to all religions 
depending on their location/makeup
 

Masonry is called by themselves "The Craft".  The "Craft" is precisely what it says it is. A Craft for building a moral structure centered upon those who seek to participate in its activities - or is it? Some will say that Masonry cannot and does not diminish the Lordship of Christ, or replace His Redeeming and Saving Power. But wait - Witches also call their religion "The Craft".

 


Christopher Haffner wrote Workman Unashamed, The Testimony of a Christian Freemason. Haffner correctly espoused Masonic teaching when he wrote:

"Now imagine me standing in lodge with my head bowed in prayer between Brother Mohammed Bokhary and Brother Arjun Melwani. To neither of them is the Great Architect of the Universe perceived as the Holy Trinity. To Brother Bokhary He has been revealed as Allah; to Brother Melwani He is probably perceived as Vishnu. Since I believe that there is only one God, I am confronted with three possibilities:

They are praying to the devil whilst I am praying to God;

They are praying to nothing, as their gods do not exist;

They are praying to the same God as I, yet their understanding of His nature is partly incomplete (as indeed is mine--1 Cor 13:12)

It is without hesitation that I accept the third possibility."

(Workman Unashamed, p39)

It is truly a shame that Haffner did not read and understand chapter 10 of 1st Corinthians. If he had, he would have understood that pagans worship demons, not God. Islam denies that Jesus Christ is the Unique Son of God, it denies that Jesus died on a cross, and Islam says that all who believe in the Blessed Trinity are "dung".  Since the God of the Bible has a Son and Allah, the God of Islam, does not have a Son.  Allah cannot be the God (Yahweh) of the Bible. Also, if Haffner had read and understood the book of 2nd John he would have understood that those who reject Jesus Christ and do not follow in His teachings do not have God.

The Apostle John wrote:

Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds (2 John 9-11)

 

The Masonic Religion - its roots:

Bible Probe feels that Freemasonry is a "religious organization"; and it does have its own Masonic Creed.  In fact, Freemasonry even sees itself as superseding and unifying all religions.

Freemasonry is said to have officially established itself in 1717. But traces of Speculative Masonry go back to the sixteenth century, possibly to the Knights Templars in the 1100-1200's, and in a lesser form to Ancient Egypt.  There is something wrong with the London-based "The United Grand Lodge of England" claim that English Freemasonry began in a London gentlemen's club in 1717.  Evidence in the Chapel at Rosslyn suggests that Masonry was active in England in the 1440's.  Sir Robert Moray was initiated into Freemasonry on English soil (Newcastle) in 1641, and Elias Ashmole was made a Mason in Warrington, England, in 1646. 

 
In America, Abram Moses was made a Mason at a lodge in Rhode Island in 1656.  Additionally, there are minutes of a Scottish Lodge meeting, back to 1598, and James the VI of Scotland (James I of England) was initiated a Mason at the lodge of Pert and Scoon.  It is a mystery as to just why Masons hide these prior to 1717 years from their history.  But, it is most likely because their history goes directly back to the Knights Templars in the 1100's - who are believed to be Non-Christian.  A Non-Christian Gentleman's Club in downtown London in the 1700's would have been very conspicuous and suspicious.

Possible Evidence that the Knights
Templars morphed into Masonry


Did Scotland's crown jewels finance early Masonry?

In Scotland, just a few miles south of Edinburgh and just outside Roslin Village is a small and quirky chapel known as Rosslyn. It is on the estate of the St. Clair or Sinclair family, and was built between 1441 and 1486. First appearances would suggest that this chapel in Rosslyn was the St Clair's Chapel, yet the St Clair's had their chapel in their house.  But, the period that this Chapel was constructed fits neatly into the time period in between the dissolution of the Templar order (1312) and the official beginnings of Freemasonry (1717). 

The Grand Lodge of England did not officially start until 1717; the Grand Lodge of Scotland followed in 1736, when who other than Sir William St. Clair the head of the Rosslyn St. Clair family became the first Scottish Grand Master.  Also adding fuel to something great actually hiding at Rosslyn was this.  In 1546, Mary of Guise (aka de Guise), the Queen Regent of Scotland and mother of Mary, Queen of Scots, wrote an enigmatic letter to Lord William St. Clair of Rosslyn, the grandson of the founder, in which she makes reference to "a great secret within Rosslyn".   Many historians believe that two passages from the official "Acts of the Lords of Council in Public Affairs" imply that the lost crown jewels and the Holy Rood of Scotland were entrusted to William St. Clair and were never recovered. These pre-date the letter Marie de Guise wrote to Lord William in 1546, so this crown wealth may well have been what she was speaking of.

One of the best-known sources about Rosslyn Chapel and the St. Clair family was written in 1700 by Father Richard Augustine Hay, Canon of St. Genevieve in Paris and Prior of St. Piermont. In it, Father Hay describes how the founder, Sir William St. Clair, personally inspected each and every carving in draft form before giving it to the masons to carve in stone. He mentions builders and stone masons coming from "other regions" and "foreign kingdoms", yet no one to this day can say for certain exactly where they came from, leading to further speculation, with France as a "good bet." 

Many wild speculations about the Chapel at Rosslyn have been made.  The Chapel at Rosslyn is believed by many to house everything from the Ark of the Covenant, the mummified head of Christ, the Holy Grail, a Black Madonna, lost scrolls from the Temple of Jerusalem, missing crown jewels of Scotland, the Holy Rood, the treasures of the Knights Templar, and much more, deep within its vaults.  Rosslyn does seem to possess many non-Christian motifs, but we at Bible Probe note that along with many pagan motifs, most motifs there are Christian, including angels and some of Jesus, like this:

"...We encountered repeated references to the Sinclair family - Scottish branch of the Norman Saint-Clair/Gisors family. Their domain at Rosslyn was only a few miles from the former Scottish headquarters of the Knights Templar, and the chapel at Rosslyn - built between 1446 and 1486 - has long been associated with both Freemasonry and the Rose-Croix. In a charter believed to date from 1601, moreover, the Sinclairs are recognized as 'hereditary Grand Masters of Scottish Masonry'. This is the earliest specific Masonic document on record."- Baigent and Leigh, The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail

"The figure that occurs most frequently," write Baigent and Leigh (Baigent & Leigh, p. 120) "is the 'Green Man' -- a human head with vines issuing from its mouth and sometimes its ears, then spreading wildly, in tangled proliferation, over the walls."  The many faces of the Rosslyn Green Men appear in many guises, from the joyful to the downright impish.  Is this "Green Man" connected with "Baphomet," the bearded head that the Templars' enemies accused them of worshiping?  Descriptions of the 'Baphomet' severed head vary greatly and come from Inquisitional records of the trial of the Templars, much of which was obtained under great torture, so they are obviously not the most reliable of sources.

Some suspect that ancient documents may have been deposited by the Knights Templar's under the Chapel at Rosslyn.

Christopher Knight and his co-author Robert Lomas suggest in their book The Hiram Key that Rosslyn was built as a replica of Herod's Temple, on which the Templars had conducted excavations during their time in the Holy Land. Rosslyn even has two pillars, "the apprentice's pillar" and "the Mason's pillar," which some suggest correspond to the two pillars, Jachin and Boaz, of the Jerusalem Temple -- and of the Masonic lodge.

Knight and Lomas also believe that the small crypt of the Rosslyn shrine was the lower middle chamber where the masons received their wages. Before the vaults were sealed off when the chapel was completed, twenty Templar knights were buried there in full armor.

"Seemed all on fire that chapel proud,
Where Roslin's chiefs uncoffined lie:
Each baron, for a sable shroud,
Sheathed in his iron panoply."
     - Sir Walter Scott, "The Lay of the Last Minstrel"

But one of the most intriguing pieces of evidence from Rosslyn is a carving shown below. Knight claims that it portrays the astonishing scene of a first-degree Masonic initiation -- conducted by a figure in Templar garb.

"It is known that the Templars fled to Scotland, too, after the dissolution of 1312, and it is known that some found refuge among the Saint-Clairs of Rosslyn in Midlothian. There is a Templar cemetery there." - Michael Bradley, Holy Grail Across the Atlantic

"No family in Europe beneath the rank of royalty boasts a higher antiquity, a nobler illustration, or a more romantic interest than that of St. Clair."- Sir John Bernard Burke, Vicissitudes of Families and Other Essays
 
Prince Henry Sinclair (aka: St. Clair) was the subject of historian Frederick J. Pohl's Atlantic Crossings Before Columbus, which was published in 1961. Not all historians agreed with Pohl, but he made a highly convincing case that this blond, sea-going Scot, born at Rosslyn Castle near Edinburgh in 1345, not only wandered about mainland Nova Scotia in 1398, but also lived among the Algonquin-speaking Micmac Indians (lived south and east of the Gulf of Saint Laurence) long enough to be remembered through the centuries as the man-god "Glooscap".  Some evidence suggests that Henry Sinclair along with members of the Scottish clan Gunn may have landed in North America (in 1398 A.D.) long before Columbus.  Although highly speculative and controversial, and many deny it, there may be evidence that Henry marched inland in Massachusetts, to the summit of a hill in Westford, Massachusetts, now called Prospect Hill.  There on Prospect Hill (on Depot St) is an old carved marker on the face of a stone ledge depicting a Scottish knight, with a 39 inch long sword and shield bearing the Gunn Clan insignia.  See more here


Masonic heresy of Universality

The Masonic heresy of Universality raises a more serious question: What "god" is this that allows acceptance of the followers of Baal and these other pagan deities as brethren? This is certainly not the God of the Bible. Another 180-degree reversal of what is taught in Scripture....

Don't think for a moment that when Masons refer to the Supreme Architect of the Universe or God, they are referring to Yahweh or His Son Jesus.


 

Masons have more in common with Muslims, Jews, Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses than with Christians:
 
Masons, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses all deny Christ as being part of the Trinity.  Yet they all think of Jesus Christ as a holy man.  Jews, of course deny Jesus completely - according to Paul due to a divine blindness.

At the core of Masonry is the belief that it is Masons, and (not the Pope) who is the successor to the High Priest of Yahweh.  They also believe that in 1118 A.D., nine Knights under the direction of Hugues de Payen lowered themselves through an excavated hole in the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and recovered buried treasure and a wealth of knowledge which only they (Knights Templars and now the Masons) possess. Masons believe that this knowledge they found on a buried pillar under Mount Moriah predates any knowledge the ancient Jews had.  They believe it predates the flood also.

Masons, like Knights Templars believe they received this apostolic succession through James (the Just), the brother of Jesus. This succession is said to be through a group of people known as the "Rex Deus" families who are prominent throughout Europe; and that it rests with the Grand Master of the Knights Templar (now highest Mason).   Rex Deus is a group of people who are said to have been established by King Solomon - to be the Kings of God.  This could very well be another good reason, that Masons in 1717 "distanced themselves from the Knights Templars.

The 4th Masonic Degree is concerned with the morning of the death of a unspecified person, symbolized by the letter "Z".  This "Z" probably refers to Zadok - whom the Masons are believed to have associated with James the Just who in 62 A.D. was cast off the Temple wall in Jerusalem and then clubbed to death.  The 27th Degree in Masonry is called the Grand Commander of the Temple.  This ritual tells of the false condemnation of the Templars, and the importance of the "denial of the cross".

Unknown to the lower levels in Masonry membership, Jacques de Molay, who denied Christ, is probably thought of by Masons as the last of the royal line of King David.  

In the 31st degree ritual, known as the Grand Inspector Inquisitor Commander" the letters "JM" (in memory of Jacques de Molay) are hung above the pedestal of the principal presiding officer, who is known as the Thrice Illustrious Commander.  The new candidate for this degree is then told the "Royal Secret of Jacques de Molay".  This is speculation, but Molay was nailed to a door by the Kings torturers (but not killed), and perhaps to these Masons, in this "Secret" they equate this with Christ's suffering on the cross.  Molay met his death not too much later when King Phillip had him slowly roasted to death.  As a sidebar here.  Partly because the Shroud of Turin showed up during this period, many Masons believe it is actually a depiction of Jacques de Molay after he was nailed to a door, and not Jesus.  Jacques de Molay was the last Grand Master of the Knights Templars.  Read more about the Shroud of Turin here.

After calling de Molay to a meeting in Paris, the French King Phillip IV (ironically called: "The Fair") had many Knights Templars seized in a surprise raid on a winter night in 1307 A.D.  However,  the night before the raid, many Knights escaped by sea (from the French harbor of La Rochelle) with eighteen galleys loaded with the legendary Templar Treasure.  de Molay initially eluded capture for 4 years, but he was finally captured by Phillip IV's men.  de Molay and many of these Knights were tortured and killed in Paris by a combined effort of the King of France and the Catholic Inquisition.  The Knights Templars vowed vengeance on the Catholic Church.  Based on the Templar History with the Roman Catholic Pope Clement who colluded with the King of France (Phillip IV)  to hunt down and torture the last Knights Templars - this is no surprise. History indicates that the King of Frances' motive was purely to rob the Knights Templars of their treasures, and that the Pope Clement conspired with the King in order to remain politically important.  Pope Clement handed over Knight Templars' positions to the Hospitallers of Saint John, who were functioning as a personal army for the pope.  Even though Jacques de Molay did deny Christ in front of the King and the pope, both the pope and the King appear to have "bad blood" on their hands over this matter. 

Following the departure of their "fleet" from  La Rochelle some think that many of these Knights Templars who did not land in Ireland and Scotland, may have begun sought vengeance by harassing papal and French ships as pirates.  They probably launched their attacks from Sicily and Portugal. 

Some of the Knights Templars who got away in France, hid under the protection of the guild of stoneworkers known as "maçons".  Remember, previously it was the Templars who had the money to build huge cathedrals and castles.  They would have had many contacts and business connections with these stone masons.

Some of these Knights who escaped in ships went to Scotland where they established the first Mason Lodges.  The Scottish king was then Robert the Bruce, who was at that time under excommunication by Rome and was also fighting to keep his country free from English rule.  It's believed that it is only because of the assistance of the Knights Templars cavalry, that Robert Bruce was able to defeat the English at Bannockburn on June 24, 1314 A.D.  They fought there under the command of Henry Sinclair.  Bruce later made Sinclair the prince of Rosslyn and the Orkney Islands.  Sinclair is known to have had maps indicating an unknown land in the western Atlantic. 

 
 
Freemasons do not only worship God the Father of the Hebrew Scriptures.  Rather, they worship all the gods of the Ancient Mysteries, and believe that God has simply taken many names, including: Marduk, Amon-Re, Osiris, Krishna, Demeter, Yahweh and Allah. Freemasons do not venerate the Jesus Christ of the Bible; rather, they believe Jesus was created by an inferior god, Ialdaboth, and that He was a human in appearance only. According to Freemasonry, the "Christ consciousness" fell on the human Jesus at the Jordan River Baptism, and left Jesus at the Cross, where He suffered and died in appearance only.
 
…Since every man’s conception of God must be proportioned to his mental cultivation, and intellectual powers, and moral excellence. God is, as man conceives him, the reflected image of man himself.” (Albert Pike, “Morals and Dogma,” 14th Degree, p.223)

“The only personal God freemasonry accepts is humanity in toto…Humanity therefore is the only personal God there is. ”        (J.D. Buck, “Mystic Masonry,” p.216)
 
As far as Bible Probe can see, the only redeeming qualities of Masonry is that it is a place where Christians can come in contact with Muslims, Jews, Wiccans, Satanists and Hindus - yet they can never speak to these people about Jesus--so they must standby politely, not evangelize and watch their friends dwell in the darkness without Jesus.  And Masons do practice and teach the virtues of brotherly love, forgiveness, and charity.  Yet, Masonry, like Islam, does not offer a 'system' of Redemption. It does not seek to enhance or provide a means by which the Mason is expected or encouraged to see his Masonic activities as being acts of worship. 

Masonry does not put Jesus Christ at the center!  Masonry claims to not be a religion, yet in the Masonic "Bible" there appears a Masonic Creed. Freemasonry has primacy, superseding other religions if there is a conflict regarding doctrine or practice.   

In many lodges the holy name of Jesus is not allowed to be spoken.  Praying to Jesus, or ending a prayer in the name of Jesus is an "offense" big enough to get a lodge closed.
 
The removal of the name of  Jesus and references to Him in Bible verses used in the ritual are “slight but necessary modifications.” (Albert Mackey, “Masonic Ritualist,” p.272)

“The literal meaning (of the Bible) is for the vulgar only.” (Albert Pike, “Digest of Morals and Dogma,” p.166)


 “If they speak not according to this Word, it is because there is no light in them. ” (Isaiah 8:20)

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God.” (II Timothy 3:16)
 
Paul warns that believers in Jesus Christ "....be not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion has light with darkness?" II Corinthians 6:14

The Bible in the Lodge
another Masonic lie

    The Bible, only one of the "Three Great Lights" of Masonry (along with the Square and Compass), is represented to the Blue Lodge as symbolizing truth.  In reality, the Bible may be replaced with the Koran (Qur'an), the Book of the Law, the Hindu scriptures or any other "holy book," depending on the preferences of the men in the Lodge.  In most American Lodges, the members are told that all the Masonic system and its rituals are "based on the Bible." Such, however, is not the case.  In Chase's "Digest of Masonic Law," pages 207-209, it is clearly written that "Masonry has nothing whatever to do with the Bible," and that "it is not founded upon the Bible, for if it were it would not be Masonry, it would be something else."

     Albert Pike, in writing on the subject of Masonry's source-book said, "Masonry is a search after light.  That search leads us directly back, as you see, to the Kabbalah." (Morals and Dogma, page 741). The Kabbalah, then seems to be the actual sourcebook of Masonry and the Bible (as it is spoken of in the ritual) a piece of the furniture" of the Lodge.

The great Mason Lie!
Christians better understand this

The Mason Doctrine

Jesus was just a man. He was one of the “exemplars,” one of the great men of the past, but not divine and certainly not the only means of redemption of lost mankind. He was on a level with other great men of the past like Aristotle, Plato, Pythagoras and Mohammed. His life and legend were no different from that of Krishna, the Hindu sun god. He is the “son of Joseph” not the Son of God.

“In his private petitions a man may petition God or Jehovah, Allah or Buddha, Mohammed or Jesus; he may call upon the God of Israel or the First Great Cause. In the Masonic Lodge he hears petition to the Great Architect of the Universe, finding his own deity under that name. A hundred paths may wind upward around a mountain; at the top they meet.” (Carl H. Claudy, “Introduction to Freemasonry”, p.38).

“Masonry makes no profession of Christianity…but looks forward to the time when the labor of our ancient brethren shall be symbolized by the erection of a spiritual temple…in which there shall be one altar and one worship; one common altar of Masonry on which the Veda, Shastra, Sade, Zend-Avesta, Koran and Holy Bible shall lie…and at whose shrine the Hindoo, the Persian, the Assyrian, the Chaldean, the Egyptian, the Chinese, the Mohammedan, the Jew, and the Christian may kneel…” (“The Kentucky Monitor,” Fellowcraft Degree, p.95)

The literal meaning (of the Bible) is for the vulgar only.” (Albert Pike, “Digest of Morals and Dogma,” p.166)

“…there is no rebellious demon of Evil, or Principle of Darkness coexistent and in eternal controversy with God, or the Principal of Light…” (Albert Pike, “Morals and Dogma,” 32nd  Degree, p.859)


Versus Christian Doctrine

Jesus Christ is divine, eternal and the second person of the Godhead.  When he was living on earth as a man, the only begotten Son of the Father, he was God incarnate, truly God and truly man. He was and is the only means of redemption of fallen mankind. Anyone who denies or rejects him or his preeminent position separates himself from God the Father.

See an example of this via this true Near Death Experience here

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God.” (II Timothy 3:16)

“The Words of the Lord are pure words, as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever. ” (Psalm 12:6-7)

“And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, being forty days tempted of the devil…” (Luke 4:1-2)

“And if Satan cast out Satan…how then shall his kingdom stand?”   (Matthew 12:26)

“…your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: ” (I Peter 5:8)

Also see satan cast out of heaven in:  Isaiah 14:12-15, Ezekiel 28:13-19, etc., etc.

 
Is Freemasonry Honest? Can you trust a Mason?
 
Freemasonry is not as "moral" as it first appears.  They are taught to lie, which certainly is not in keeping with the Christian Bible.  As Masons take the oath for the 3rd degree, they promise to conceal all crimes (except treason & murder) committed by a fellow Mason.  By the 13th degree Masons are made to understand that all crimes by fellow Masons are to be concealed, even treason & murder. 
 
Ex 33 degree Mason Jim Shaw says in his book, "The Deadly Deception" page 149:

"The Mason swears to keep the secrets of another Mason, protecting him even if it requires withholding evidence of a crime.  In some degrees treason and murder are excepted; in other, higher degrees, there are no exceptions to this promise to cover up the truth.  The obligations, if the Masonic teachings are believed, may require a Mason to give false testimony, perjure himself or (in the case of a judge) render a false verdict in order to protect another Mason.  Again, the Bible is quite clear in teaching that we must never lie or bear false witness, and states that liars will have their part in the Lake of Fire (Ex. 20:16; Prov. 19:5; Eph. 4:15; Rev. 21:8; et al).

This equates to telling a lie and calling it moral. The Bible records in Revelation 21, "…all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone forever." How can one ascribe to the Holy Scriptures and rationalize behavior opposite to its teaching?


 

Royal Arch degree is the 13th.

The Royal Arch Degrees, is where the candidate suffers a severe shock, for the candidate must swear to the following:

The candidate must swear to keep the secrets of a fellow Mason, murder and treason not exempted."   With his hand on the Bible, the candidate for the Royal Arch Degrees must swear the following:

"I will aid and assist a companion Royal Arch Mason when engaged in any difficulty, and espouse his cause so far as to extricate him from the same, if within my power, whether he be right or wrong."

He then goes on and swears:

"To keep in my heart all the secrets that shall be revealed to me. And in my failure if this my oath, I consent to have my body opened perpendicularly, and to be exposed for eight hours in the open air that the venomous flies may eat out my intestines...and I will always be ready to inflict the same punishment on those who shall disclose this degree or break this oath. So may God help and maintain me. Amen."

Did you know that a great Masonic lie is that there is no restriction to entrance, except "a good character who believes in a Supreme Being (certainly this means Satan also)". This means you can be a Satanist and a Mason at the same time, as many are. However, no women, children, blind, deaf, lame, retarded, slaves or Negroes are allowed to join. While they allow membership to those who have belief systems that recognize the existence of a god or god's ranging from the Christian universal creator to totem pole worshippers and agnostics, most lodges will not allow the name of any god to be mentioned at meetings.

Black (Negroes) and women are entirely excluded from the Masonic brotherhood.  There is a Black Masonic system, called the Prince Hall Lodge, but it is not associated in any way with "white" Freemasonry.  It is referred to as "clandestine" Masonry, and is considered by the rest of Masonry to be a spurious, illegitimate imitation.

Jim Shaw, an ex-33 degree Mason says: In a well ordered lodge, Jesus is never mentioned except in vague, philosophical terms.  Prayers are never prayed in His name, and when scriptures are quoted in the ritual, all references to Him are simply omitted.  For example, II Thessalonians 3:6 is used in the ritual, but not the way it is in your Bible; the words "in the name or our Lord Jesus Christ" are entirely omitted.  Likewise, the ritual includes 1 Peter 2:5, but with the words "by Jesus Christ" omitted.  Albert Mackey, after Albert Pike the highest Msonic authority, calls this changing of the scriptures "a slight but necessary modification" (Masonic Ritualist, page 272).  Reference, The Deadly Deception, Page 76

Masons require one to believe in God to be a member, but the candidate is never required to say what god he believes in -- "Masonry ... requires merely that you believe in some deity, give him what name you will ... any god will do, so he is your god" (Little Masonic Library, Macoy Publishing, 1977, 4:32). Masons commonly refer to their deity as the "Great Architect of the Universe" (G.A.O.T.U.) or the Supreme Being. God is further described as Grand Artificer, Grand Master of the Grand Lodge Above, Jehovah, Allah, Buddha, Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, or Great Geometer. (The "G" in the Masonic ring can refer to God; it can also refer to geometry.) Masons claim that the actual name for God has been lost (cf. Jn. 14:8,9; Phil. 2:9-11; 1 Jn. 5:20)

Freemasonry is not a Christian religion. Rather, the Masons espouse beliefs that are incompatible with the teachings of Christ and his apostles. The Masons ask their members to keep to themselves all beliefs concerning Jesus Christ, the Bible and the authority of the Church.

Masonry is all about occult and "Wizardry", which is expressively forbidden in the Judao-Christian Bible. Masonry can really not be called a Secret Cult, because it is open to almost the entire public to join. It can best be called a Cult with Secrets.

The rank and file never learn the "highest secrets". If they did--they may flee in a hurry when they realize "Lucifer, the Light-bearer!" is "directing the show".
This reference is on page 321, of one of Freemasonry's greatest books entitled "Morals and Dogma" by Albert Pike.

"Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable, blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish souls? Doubt it not!" [Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, p. 321, 19th Degree of Grand Pontiff


The oldest sources of Freemasonry refer to the fact that basic Freemasonry was openly established on the Christian heritage during the times of its birth in England.  But from the beginning of the 18th century onwards the basic Freemasonry was stripped of the direct Christian elements so that men practicing other religions, mainly Jews at that time, could also participate in Masonic work.  For instance, in Finland the degree system called the Ancient and Accepted Rite shows a Christian nature openly and the candidate is expected to believe in the Trinity. The first question put to him is whether he professes "the triune Christian Faith and is willing to give his obligation in the name of the Sacred and Undivided Trinity". In a Lodge consisting of Christians, Jews and Muslims - no such "Christian nature" or Christian preference is allowed. 

The great Victorian Age novelist, Rudyard Kipling (Jungle Book, The Man Who Would Be King), in passing through the 3 'degrees' to become a Master Mason in his home Lodge of Lahore, was 'Initiated' by a Hindu, 'Passed' by a Muslim and 'Raised' by a Christian....all of whom used the Bible each time, as the Volume of Sacred Law, because Kipling was a Christian. That Lodge would have needed the Bhagad Vita (for the Hindu), the Koran (for the Muslim) and the Bible for the Christian.

 

Famous American Masons

George Washington, Henry Knox, Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock and Paul Revere were all Masons. 

We do know from his his own writings, in the later years of his life, George Washington showed indifference to Masonry. He even sought to distance himself from Masonry.

Among the correspondence of George Washington, are letters from a gentleman by the name of George Washington Snyder, who sent to the President a copy of John Robison's Proofs of a Conspiracy Against All the Religions and Governments of Europe (New York: George Forman, 1798; reprint edition, Boston: Western Islands, 1967). This classic volume revealed the Illuminist plan, through the agency of Freemasonry, for the overthrow of established governments and religions. Mr. Snyder apparently questioned the propriety of the President's membership and position as Grand Master of the Alexandria Lodge No. 22 of Virginia.

George Washington wrote:

Mount Vernon, September 25, 1798.

"to correct an error you have run into, of my Presiding over the English lodges in this Country. The fact is, I preside over none, nor have I been in one more than once or twice, within the last thirty years."

 

Albert Pike

Some think the greatest Freemason who ever lived was Boston-born Albert Pike, an obscure ex-Confederate Civil War Brigadier General. 
 

Klu Klux Klan was led by mostly Masons...

Pike claimed he was a Harvard graduate, but no record of his attendance exists. ." in 1905 the Neale Publishing Company, New York and Washington, published Ku Klux Klan: Its Origin, Growth and Disbandment, written and edited by Walter L. Fleming.  Dr. Fleming stated in it that "General Albert Pike, who stood high in the Masonic order, was the chief judicial officer of the Klan."  On a page of illustrations of important founders of the KKK, Dr. Fleming places General Pike's portrait in the center, makes it larger than the six others on the page, and repeats this information as a caption: "General Albert Pike, chief judicial officer".  Susan Lawrence Davis's 1924 Authentic History, Ku Klux Klan, 1865-1877, repeats the pattern Fleming created in 1905, revealing Pike's KKK role but treating him and the Klan sympathetically.  Also, of note - in the KKK birth-state of Tennessee, Pike was the president of the Bar Association and publisher of the main racist newspaper at the time.  He expounded and wrote extensively about the Mythical and Mystical Lost Tribe of the Aryans as being the source of Freemasonry.

Many believe the Klu Klux Klan was founded In Pulaski, Tennessee, in 1866, by Confederate Generals and Scottish Rite Freemasons, Albert Pike and Nathan Bedford Forrest, along with other "Templars of Tennessee."  Strong evidence, including its shared hatred of Jews, Blacks, and Catholics suggests that the KKK was a Masonic front group.  Just about all of the Klan's early leaders were Freemasons.  Colonel William J. Simmons who re-established the Klan in Atlanta, Georgia in 1915 was an ardent admirer of the KKK during the 1866-1869 period under Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forest.  Colonel Simmons was a Mason, and a Knight Templar; 32 degree Mason C. Anderson Wright, was King Kleagle (salesman) of the New York Klan, and chief of staff of a Klan group known as Knights of the Air.  32nd degree Mason, Doctor Hiram Evans who succeeded Colonel Simmons as KKK Imperial Wizard, for many years was recognized as one of the most active men in Masonry.  Edward Young Clarke, a former publicity agent and fund raiser, who became Imperial Kleagle for the KKK, "realized the value of representing the Klan to be 'the fighting brother' of Masonry."  He issued orders that "none but men with Masonic affiliations" should be employed as Kleagles in the Klan's nationwide sales network.

No doubt his appointment to general in the Civil War was due to his Masonic position prior to that war.  Pike enjoyed a meteoric rise.  He was initiated in Western Star Lodge, Little Rock, in 1850; received the degree of Worshipful Master in the following July; was created a Knight Templar in 1853; served as Grand High Priest of the Grand Chapter of Arkansas in 1852-1854; received the degrees of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite from the 4th to the 32nd degree in 1858, and in January, 1859, was elected M.P. Sovereign Grand Commander of the Supreme Council of the Southern Jurisdiction of the United States.

During the Civil War, Pike a Massachusetts Tory, went south to incite whites against the Union.  Albert Pike saw action serving in the Civil War as a politically appointed Confederate general serving in the “Western Theater” of the war in Arkansas.  Along with General Ben McCullough, Pike trained 3 regiments consisting mainly of Native American Indians. He became infamous for his role in a small western-theater battle at Pea Ridge, Arkansas. He commanded a small force of Indians from various tribes who committed such heinous atrocities under his command during the battle that afterwards, Confederate President Jefferson Davis felt morally compelled to remove Pike from duty as a Brigadier General. A move that was very unusual and was due primarily to the outrage of desecrating the bodies of dead Union soldiers on the battlefield by Pike’s Indians as well as allegations of embezzlement of Confederate funds by Pike. Pike denied both claims vociferously but the charges haunted him for the rest of his life.  After the war, Pike was jailed for a while as a Confederate leader but soon released by President Andrew Johnson, no doubt due to his Masonic positions. Johnson would later become a Mason and would be instantly sailed to the 32nd rank of Freemasonry and receive numerous Masonic honors.

As a Mason, Pike was also founder of the Supreme Council 33rd Degree, Mother Council of the World the Illustrious Albert Pike 33rd degree, Sovereign Grand Commander of the Supreme Council 33rd Degree Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, Mother Council of the World. Albert Pike re-wrote the degrees of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry and instituted the diabolical Rite of the Palladium to dominate Freemasonry.  Pike served Freemasonry as the Grand Commander of North American Freemasonry from 1859 until his death in 1891.  Pike occupied simultaneously the positions of Grand Master of the Central Directory at Washington, D.C., Grand Commander of the Supreme Council at Charleston, S.C., and Sovereign Pontiff of Universal.

Pike also was one of the most physically and morally repulsive individuals in American history. Weighing well over three hundred pounds, his sexual proclivity was to sit naked astride a phallic throne in the woods, accompanied by a gang of prostitutes. To these orgies he would bring one or more wagonloads of food and liquor, most of which he would consume over a period of two days until he passed into a stupor.  In his adopted state of Arkansas, Pike was well known as a practitioner of Satanism. Portraits in his later years show him wearing a symbol of the Baphomet around his neck. Pike, however, did not believe the Baphomet was Satan. In Morals and Dogma he explains that this symbol was misunderstood by those who were not adepts"; that it was "invented ages before, to conceal what it was [too] dangerous to avow." 

Occult 101

According to this occult worldview/heresy, Jesus never really was the Son of God. Instead Jesus was a "master" who came to teach you how to save yourself. He was not the Son of God either they say, only a son in the sense that we are all sons of God.

Eliphas Levi was a defrocked Roman Catholic Priest who was originally named Alphonse Louis Constant. He took the pen name of Eliphas Levi because he hoped it would help him spread his Satanism. Eliphas Levi was an accomplished Demon possessed Satanist, who is responsible for the occult revival of the 1800 and 1900s, along with Pike, Mazzini and Blavatsky.

The Palladian Rite provides an intensified hands-on course in "fleshly glove" demon possession leading to walking/talking possession of human initiates by Lucifer-associated spirits, demons.  Pike was said to be a Satanist, who indulged in the occult, and he apparently possessed a bracelet which he used to summon Lucifer, with whom he had constant communication. He was the Grand Master of a Masonic Luciferian group known as the Order of the Palladium (or Sovereign Council of Wisdom), which had been founded in Paris in 1737.  Palladism had been brought to Greece from Egypt by Pythagoras in the fifth century, and it was this cult of Satan that was introduced to the inner circle of the Masonic lodges.

albert pike and Paladin degree of masonry

Albert Pike

In his book Masonry "Beyond the Light", William Schnoebelen (now a saved Christian) talks about his experiences as first a Satanist and then a Mason who passed through nearly all the Mason Degrees, including some that American Masons are unaware of; such as degrees in Masonry like the Egyptian rites of Masonry and the Paladin. During his initiation into Palladium Masonry William sadly admits to standing with Masons, some who were also Satanists and chanting; "Glory and Love for Lucifer! Hatred! Hatred! Hatred! to God accursed! accursed! accursed!". He says that hashish provides some of their "illumination", taking after the 1st "Illuminati" 18th century Mason Adam Weishaupt (White Brotherhood). 

During the Palladium "program" William tells how Masons promised to surrender themselves body and soul to Lucifer, usually for 7 years, and Lucifer promised to grant them all their worldly desires. 

An example is the following text from the Masonic Text Book for use in the Lodges of West Virginia shows how Masons still look up to Albert Pike.  Mason Lodges also give out Albert Pike awards.  Also, in the Atrium of the Supreme Council 33°, Washington DC, there is a bust of Pike on the landing of the Grand Staircase which leads up to the main temple room which all 33° Masons must file past. Pike is buried in a secret crypt under the stairway, beneath the bust; the only Freemason to be given this "honor".

"Brother Albert Pike, one of the most illustrious Masons in all the ages, and who was an acknowledged authority upon all Masonic questions, was a believer in ancient Landmarks. . ." (page 25)

In his most famous book, "Morals and Dogma". Albert Pike said that "... Masonry is identical with the Ancient Mysteries ..." (On Page 624, 28th Degree). As you read this Masonic book and others, you will be amazed at how many stories of the gods and goddesses from the many Ancient Religions are written in full detail, as instructions to Freemasons!

Masons who have reached a certain "degree" will tell you that they do not worship an object in Nature, such as the Sun.  Rather, they say they worship God through the Sun.  In short, the Mason worships God through the created object; not the object itself. New Agers have a lot in common with this Mason form of "2nd hand" worship.  On Page 624, 28th Degree Pike says; "... Masonry is identical with the Ancient Mysteries ..." .  On Page 329 Pike wrote "... we reproduce the speculations of the Philosophers, the Kabalists, the Mystagogues, and the Gnostics." In other words, whatever the Ancients believed, Freemasonry embraces too.

Also we read from Pike about "Sun and Moon ... Divine sexes"!! This is old fashioned witchcraft, dating back 5,000 years to the Egyptian Mysteries. This is the concept of Luciferianism, that the Divine Father mated with Mother Earth. It is Witchcraft.  Witches make no bones about calling their religion "The Craft"; it is no wonder the Masons also call their organization the "Craft", as well as their Second Degree, the Fellow-Craft.  The head of a Masonic Lodge is called; "Right Worshipful Grand Master".  Only God is to be worshiped....

Pike is the only Confederate leader to have a statue erected in his honor in the city of Washington, D.C. The statue shows his enormous size. No statue of Robert E. Lee or Stonewall Jackson or any other Confederate leader has ever been erected in the nation’s capital. So is it odd that a seedy Confederate general who committed war crimes should have the only statue in Washington ever erected to someone who served as a Confederate leader.  It is even harder to believe that the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s and 70’s didn’t try to remove the Pike statue on racial grounds.  U.S. Rep. James Richardson, the masonic Grand Commander, introduced House Resolution 178 on March 10, 1898, to permit his Scottish Rite to erect on Federal property a huge memorial statue honoring Albert Pike, a mass murderer who had worked for several decades to overthrow America's laws and government.


Giusseppe Mazzini

Pike is credited with converting the Masonic hierarchy in London, Berlin and Rome to his Luciferian doctrines.

Pike worked closely with Giusseppe Mazzini of Italy (1805-1872) also a satanist and a 33° Mason.  Mazzini became head of the Illuminati in 1834, and who founded the Mafia in 1860. Mazzini was a high-level planner for the Italian revolution in 1848. Together with Mazzini, Lord Henry Palmerston of England (1784-1865) (author of the Opium Wars  against China), and Otto von Bismarck of Germany (1815-1898)—all 33° Masons—Albert Pike used the Palladian Rite to bind all Masonic groups under one umbrella.  One reason speculated for this is a conspiracy to destroy the United States, a continuing British-sponsored treasonous Tory/British commitment since our War of Independence.

Pike & Mazzin's Masonic 'head' is Lucifer. And Pike an Mazzini were his human self-appointed assistants. Palladism is a Luciferian rite. Its religion is Manichæism. It teaches that the divinity is dual and that Lucifer is the equal of Adonay, And that Lucifer is the “god of light and goodness” who is struggling for humanity against Adonay the “god of darkness and evil.” The Manichæism religion had an answer for everything and despised Christianity, which was too full of mysteries.

Their Luciferian doctrine is only implied in the lower Masonic degrees, and only becomes a clear teaching in the highest degrees. The highest of the high levels was the Palladium.

Mazzini recruited Pike into the Illuminati in order to create an American branch of Illuminists that would operate inside American Freemasonry as a most secret society within a secret society.

Mazzini wrote a letter to Pike dated January 22, 1870, instructing him on how use Freemasonry as an instrument of Luciferian Illuminism:

“We must allow all the federations to continue just as they are, with their systems, their central authorities and their diverse modes of correspondence between high grades of the same rite, organized as they are at the present, but we must create a super rite, which will remain unknown, to which we will call those Masons of high degree whom we shall select. With regard to our brothers in Masonry, these men must be pledged to the strictest secrecy. Through this supreme rite, we will govern all Freemasonry which will become the one international center, the more powerful because its direction will be unknown.”

This explains Pike’s meteoric rise in Masonry. 

DON'T MISS THE INFORMATION AT THE VERY BOTTOM--To have hairs stand up on the back of your neck... See the very bottom for a letter explaining Masonry's and Satan's "Game Plan"... Written by Albert Pike to Giusseppe Mazzini on August 15, 1871.

 

New candidates aren't aware what happens later
Note: what "Religion" you are now in


On July 14, 1889, two years before his death, Pike issued the following statement to the 24 Supreme Masonic Councils of the world who were meeting in Paris
:

"To you, Sovereign Grand Instructors General, we say this, that you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st and 30th degrees: 'the Masonic Religion should be,  by all of us initiates of the high degrees,  maintained in the purity of the LUCIFERIAN Doctrine. If Lucifer were not god, would Adonay (Jesus)... calumniate (spread false and harmful statements about) him?...

Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay is also God. For the eternal law is that there is no light without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white without black, for the absolute can only exist as two Gods: darkness being necessary to light to serve as its foil as the pedestal is necessary to the statue, and the brake to the locomotive." (Albert Pike, A.C. De La Rive, La Femme et l'Enfant dans la Franc-Maqonnene Universelle, page 588.)

Albert Pike also said;
"Thus, the doctrine of Satanism is heresy; and the true and pure philosophic religion is the belief in Lucifer, the equal of Adonay; But Lucifer, god of light and god of good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of darkness and evil." 

Baphomet the god of Masons
 

The hideous occult idol known as Baphomet (above) is the most widely used of all Satanic symbols. The Satanic Bible instructs satan worshipers to place the Baphomet on the wall above the altar during Satanic rituals. Every time we see the symbol of the Baphomet we should be reminded of the connection between Freemasonry and Satanism.  Baphomet represents Masonic wisdom and is, in effect, their god, whether recognized as such or not.

The Baphomet picture we have used is the work of French Freemason Eliphas Levi. Eliphas Levi is considered one of the Master occultists of all time and was just as educated when writing about Freemasonry as he was Black Magic. Levi had a profound influence on what is probably the most widely read Masonic book of all time by Masonic author, Albert Pike.

Pike's master work Morals and Dogma is often called the 'Masonic Bible'. This honored American Freemason was the Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite when he took the Cabbalistic and Luciferian doctrine of Eliphas Levi and put it in his book.

In 1801, Issac Long, a Kabalist Jew, brought a statue of Baphomet (Satan) to Charleston, South Carolina, where he helped to establish the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite. Long apparently chose Charleston because it was geographically located on the 33rd parallel of latitude (incidentally, so is Baghdad), and this council is considered to be the Mother Supreme Council of all Masonic Lodges of the World.  Albert Pike succeeded Long as the supreme leader. Edith Miller in her Occult Theocracy claims that Isaac Long brought the Baphomet to Charleston with the skull of Jacques de Molay in 1801. [p. 194.]

The Mason Calendar

Masons have their own Lucerferian based calendar. Our western calendar counts its years based on the number of years before and after Christ' B.C., for before Christ and A.D.' Anno Domini, meaning, "in the year of our Lord," for the years after the birth of Christ. The Masonic calendar counts it years with the suffix A.L; meaning Anno Lucis (or Lucifer); "year of light", the Masonic year of creation. This can also be interpreted to mean "Year of Lucifer."

Masons do not count their years from the year of Christ's death because for a rather curious reason; they consider it a tragedy. In their initiation ceremony for the eighteenth degree, the Knight of the rose Crucis, also known as the Rose (The Red Cross) or "the Rosicrucians, Masons symbolically drape the Lodge room in black and sit on the floor in silence, resting their heads in their arms in mock grief around the alter above which are three crosses. They grieve not for the death of the Son of God, but according to the French Masonic historian Abbe Augusten de Barreul, they symbolically mourn because the day Jesus was crucified was the day Christianity was born, ever to be the antagonist of Masonry.

"What is more absurd and more impious than to attribute the name of Lucifer to the devil, that is, to personified evil. The intellectual Lucifer is the spirit of intelligence and love; it is the paraclete, it is the Holy Spirit, while the physical Lucifer is the great agent of universal magnetism." page 428

"Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the son of the morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with it's splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual or selfish Souls? Doubt it not!  page 321

These three sentences (of which two are actually exclamations), are taken from Pike's book "Morals and Dogma", a book of 861 pages with a 216 page index.

For about 60 years Pike's book "Morals and Dogma" was given to all who joined the Southern United States jurisdiction of the Scottish Rite, an appendant body of Freemasonry.

In the earliest printings, due to the cost of publishing books, there was an instruction inside that it was to be returned to the Supreme Council. Of course, there was no way to enforce that and as book publishing costs became less onerous, that request was dropped in later editions.
 

This quotation is taken from the XXVI Degree of the Scottish Rite, and is part of the Introduction to:

The Title of Prince Of Mercy of Scottish Trinitarianism.

". . . the Prince of Darkness . . . made Adam, whose soul was of the Divine Light, contributed by the Eons, and his body of matter, so that he belonged to both Empires, that of Light and that of Darkness. To prevent the light from escaping at once, the Demons forbade Adam to eat the fruit of "knowledge of good and evil," by which he would have known the Empire of Light and that of Darkness. He obeyed; an Angel of Light induced him to transgress, and gave him the means of victory. .

As strange as it may seem, the Light that Masons seek is Lucifer, the Light Bearer, although most Masons never discover that truth. Why would anyone want to follow the Prince of Darkness? Because he gives them freedom to do whatever they wish. Under Lucifer, men don't face the restraints contained in the Ten Commandments.


 

Masonic Secret Doctrine, Much like New Age Beliefs
Below from Mason training manuals
 

Details of the Secret Doctrine reveal the Masonic plan of salvation more completely. Mystic Masonry, by J.D. Buck, M.D., contains a chapter titled The Secret Doctrine. Buck writes:

 

"It is far more important that men should strive to become Christs than that they should believe that Jesus was Christ. If the Christ-state can be attained by but one human being during the whole evolution of the race, then the evolution of man is a farce and human perfection an impossibility. Jesus is no less Divine because all men may reach the same Divine perfection. (page 62)

According to the Secret Doctrine, faith in Jesus the Christ is not necessary for salvation. Notice that in the Secret Doctrine, the meaning of Christ has been redefined. Instead of referring to the Messiah when they use the term, they refer to a state or condition which man can attain. The Secret Doctrine teaches that Jesus was Christ, but he was not the only one to attain that state. Being Christ is vital to Masonic salvation.

 

What does the Bible say about this Mason heresy?

 

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me "(John 14:6)

"Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. {11} This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. {12} Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:1-12)

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through redemption that is in Christ Jesus."(Romans 3:23)

See these two true Near Death Experiences showing Jesus's light the same as the Fathers.  And how Jesus is our only mediator.. Valvita and Angie
 

Masonry - the Original "Pyramid Scheme"

Can "King Makers" make a one-world government/religion?

The ruler of a hierarchy of Masonic lodges is, in a very real sense, king for life, and powerful enough to base a dynasty on the control of such lodges. 

The whole Masonic pyramid is even profitable, because there is always substantial tribute from the lowest level, often called union dues. Masonic theory is no doubt the origin of pyramid letter schemes.

Masonic "kings" have never yet allowed an understanding of the purpose or pyramidal organization of unions and large social clubs to trickle into the public's general knowledge, and that fact alone keeps them safe.

Believe it or not, the king of a world-spanning Masonic empire has controlled all Masonic lodges for centuries, and steered all figurehead kings and governments with personal advisors trained from birth for the job.

Truth

In I John 4:1-3, Christians are enjoined to "believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world."

 

The Rosicrucian Connection
(another Satanic ploy away from Jesus and Salvation)

 

The Rosicrucian's is one of the planet's leading occult schools.  It is a secret cult steep in mysticism, "magick", tarot card reading, claimed astral journeys, and attempts to talk with the dead - all of which is strictly forbidden in the Bible. It is also linked today with the New Age Movement.  New Agers think in the terms of "mother earth" and the "spirit in the sky" - another great satanic "Christless" ploy.  Rosicrucian students continue to practice their chosen religion, or none at all.  The Rosicrucian Fellowship, had been an organization known as The Great White Brotherhood of Man, and out of this came the Rosicrucian's, and out of the Rosicrucian's came the Masonic Order.  

Rosicrucians by admission is a secret society. It flourished in a day when secret societies were in vogue, and a century after its origin, Rosicrucianism underwent a recrudescence in connection with Freemasonry, which not only deemed Rosicrucianism genuine, but even borrowed usages and customs from the writings of those who had satirized the fraternity.  The substance of the Rosicrucian claim, or mythos is that there is a "Hidden Church" which is a repository of great secrets learned in the East, and transmitted by various luminaries, sages and adepts down to our own time. 

The name 'Rosicrucian' is said to be derived from the Latin words: 'ros' and 'crucis', or rose cross.  But their symbolism of the cross has nothing to do with Jesus Christ. This "Invisible Order" was founded in Germany, several centuries earlier, by an individual known as Christian Rosenkrutz. It is said that in order to perpetuate an ancient tradition he had initiated a few brothers into the mysteries of the Rose Cross. The successors to these brothers brought to light the existence of the Order in 1614, with the publication of the first Rosicrucian manifesto Fama Fraternitatis. However, the actual foundation of the Order is believed to have taken place on the occasion of the opening of the allegorical crypt of Christian Rosenkrutz, ten years prior to the publication of Fama Fraternitatis. Fama Fraternitatis was first published in 1614 in German and in 1615 in Latin, though there are some manuscript copies in existence dating from about 1611. In 1620 Descartes wrote a mathematical treatise dedicated to the Rosicrucians entitled "Polybiicosmopolitani Thesaurus Mathematicus." All that survives today is the title. 

Rose-Croix, the Rosicrucians, a society founded by Christian Rosenkreutz, a German, who was born in 1378. But according to its own claims, “The Order of the Rose and Cross has existed from time immemorial, and its mystic rites were practiced and its wisdom taught in Egypt. Eleusis, Samothrace, Persia, Chaldea, India, and in far, more distant lands, and thus were handed down to posterity the Secret Wisdom of the Ancient Ages.” 

That its origin remains a mystery was emphasized by (Prime Minister) Disraeli, who said of the Society, in 1841, “Its hidden sources defy research.” 

After traveling in Spain, Damascus and Arabia, where he was initiated into Arabian magic, Rosenkreutz returned to Germany and set up his fraternity of the Invisibles. In a building they designated as Domus Sancti Spiritus they followed such varied studies as the secrets of nature, alchemy, astrology, magnetism (or hypnotism as it is better known as) communication with the dead, and medicine. 

Rosenkreutz is said to have died at the over-ripe age of 106, and when opened, his tomb which had been lost sight of for many years was found to contain signs and symbols of magic and occult manuscripts. 

The founder of Witches Against Religious Discrimination (WARD), Joyce Siegrist, is also the founder of the Rosarian Tradition. Joyce is a student of the Rosicrucian teachings, and The Rosarian Tradition bears their influence.  The New Age witches group known as the Aglaian Triad of Wicca says; "We believe the Rosicrucian Order has gotten occult training to more "regular" people than any other mystical order."

Satanist leader Anton LaVey declares "Satanic ritual is a blend of Gnostic, Cabalistic, Hermetic, and Masonic elements" and that Masonry contains "numerous manifestations of Satanism, namely the goat, the coffin, the death's-head."

 

Are Masons under the Curse of God?

In Galatians 1:6-9 Paul says;

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than ye have received, let him be accursed.

Would this mean that Masonic Worshipful Masters and other Masonic instructors are under the curse of God. Don't these preach the contrary doctrine that "salvation is by works"?

Ephesians 2:8-9
For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God: Not works, lest any man should boast.

WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?
"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou salt be saved..." Acts 16:31

Also of interest is the aprons Masons wear. Remember the fig leaf apron which Adam & Eve made to cover their nakedness? God got rid of these aprons because they were man's feeble attempt to make restitution for their sins. God then killed an animal and then made them coats of skins. What are Masons & Mormons really symbolizing by wearing these aprons? Don't Mormons and Masons realize Satanists like to wear aprons in their rights also?  
Satan leading even Christians to the "slaughter"
Masons actually have aprons of lambskin as if a mockery of the Lamb of God.  They are told to trust their apron; and Jesus is never allowed to be spoken of
 
Masonry is actually a satanic plan to draw people away from churches on Sunday by telling them lies about symbolism and giving them Degrees and uniforms and new buddies to make them feel special.  Most Masons are never told that their cherished symbols are actually cult fertility symbols.  They are out and out lied to.  The Third Degree Mason should be taken aback when he is taught that the first Freemason was Tubal Cain.  In the Bible, Tubal Cain is descended from the accursed line of Cain (Gen 4:17-22).  Tubal Cain's father was the first person to boast about murder.  

How about the Bible being Present?
Masons say we have a Bible at every Meeting:  However, nobody actually is allowed to read anything about Jesus Christ from the Bible out loud.  Try it and see what happens.  It is there to give this occultist gathering a sort of credibility in Christian circles and in the community.  It's just another satanic ploy to make an otherwise skeptical Christian want to come in. 
 
Freemasonry like Islam, is a religion without a Savior:
When quoting from the Bible, references to Christ are omitted, and prayer is never allowed to be offered (in a "well-ordered" lodge) in the name of Jesus Christ. Masons do not care whether a person privately petitions God or Jehovah, Allah or Buddha, Mohammed or Jesus, the God of Israel or the "Great First Cause," but in the Lodge, the only petition allowed is to the "Great Architect of the Universe."  Clearly then, Freemasonry does not believe that Jesus Christ is God, nor that salvation is available only through Him (see 1 John. 4:3).

Masonry: Doorways to Satanism and the Order of Seth:
Also of interest is the irony (purposeful?) of naming the Masonic youth league the DeMolay order for boys as if Jacques DeMolay (Jacques de Molay) was some sort of hero. 
 
Christians should be aware that DeMolay was burned at the stake for being a pedophile, homosexual, for practicing witchcraft, and for worshipping the false god Baphomet. 
 
History tells us that DeMolay even denied Jesus Christ in front of both the Catholic Pope and the King of France.  DeMolay was the last Grand Master of the Templers.  The Order of DeMolay is designed to draw youngsters into Masonry and the occult, just like its counterparts for girls (Rainbow Girls & Job's Daughters).  The Order of the Eastern Star is made up of women relatives of Masons.  Even though the youth groups such as the Rainbow Girls, Job's Daughters, and the DeMolays, seem like innocent organizations, we must remember that these associations are considered to be 'feeder groups'. The adolescents in these societies are being groomed for potential membership in Masonry and the Eastern Star when they reach adulthood. In fact, according to The New Age, a Masonic journal ... about 50% of  DeMolays join Masonry when they reach 21 years of age." ["Hidden Secrets of the Eastern Star", by Dr. Burns, p. 366

In 1976, the International Order of the Rainbow, suspended all Iowa chapters of the group because one local chapter endorsed membership of a 12 year old black girl.  According to press reports Michelle Palmer, whose father is white and whose mother is black, had been invited to join the Rainbow chapter in Indianola, Iowa, and was approved by the local assembly in October of that year.  However officials at the Rainbow international headquarters in McAlester, Oklahoma ruled that all 136 Rainbow assemblies in Iowa must disband by the end of the year because they did not follow "rules and regulations."  It was explained that the organization was taking disciplinary action on the basis of an "unwritten law", which excludes blacks from membership.

"One former DeMolay member goes so far as to call the DeMolays a 'kindergarten for Satanism', for he believes it was a major stepping stone for him into occultism and witchcraft."  (Burns, p. 368, quoting Bill Schnoebelen, "Masonry", p. 110)

 
In 3rd degree lectures Masons read:

...that All-Seeing Eye, whom the sun, moon and stars obey, and under whose watchful care even comets perform their stupendous revolutions, beholds the inmost recesses of the human heart, and will reward us according to our works.

Save your money (dues), here is the ultimate Masonic "secret"....

THE ULTIMATE MASONIC "SECRET" IS THE LUCIFERIAN DOCTRINE that LUCIFER IS GOD!
 
In the Masonic Lodge everything is symbolic of something else. The name "Lucifer" means "Light Bearer" or "Light Bringer".  Masons point out that the MORNING STAR is Lucifer.  When Masons speak of the "light of Masonry", they actually refer to Lucifer bringing forth the light. 
 
During the lecture for the 32nd degree, Masons are told that the triliteral name for god is composed of three Hindu gods: Brahma, Vishnu and Siva. Siva is a synonym for Satan! Lucifer is honored and revered by Masons as the TRUE GOD!

Masonic UN-Holy Trinity and the Serpent Emblem:
 
Masonry uses symbols of the Bible to hide the real Masonic meaning behind their Hermetic Rites. They just use the name Solomon for their Temples. The truth is, Solomon, the King of Israel, was not a Mason, nor did he ever have any connection with Freemasonry. The real reason Freemasonry uses the name Solomon is to hide the real names of the Sun gods from 3 different nations.  This name Solomon is not the Israelitish king. It is name in form, but different in its meaning.  It is a substitute, which is externally like the royal name.  This name is a composite.  SOL-OM-ON, the names of the Sun in Latin, Indian and Egyptian.." Quoted from the Masonic Report, McQuaig, p. 33
 
To hide the fact that their god is LUCIFER, those entering Masonry must enact strange rituals.  
Only after a Mason has completed the 13th degree -- and paid much money in dues for all the frivolous and nonsensical occult knowledge - do they learn the "secret" word, or the "Lost Word":

The Royal Arch Candidate is led to believe that the lost name for God is JAH-BUL-ON or JAO-BUL-ON

JAH represents the name for Yahweh or Jehovah. BUL represents Ba'al or Bel (the Devil). The name of the god of Jezebel and Ahab.  ON represents the name of the Egyptian Sun God Osiris. The god of Pharaoh... JAO is a pagan Chaldean name for God. "BUL" is a Syriac word which means "Baal".  Baal was a Canaanite fertility god associated with LICENTIOUS rites and MAGIC.  Baal is actually another name for the Devil.  This is also known as the Grand-Omnific Royal Arch Word.

Contrast these with Yahweh or Jehovah, Jesus or Yeshua, and the Holy Spirit.

Of note, the "SERPENT" to a Mason is the emblem of DIVINE WISDOM.   You see the SERPENT plastered all over Masonic lodges in decorations.  Masonic theology is quite clear, that the serpent, or Satan (Lucifer) should be worshipped.  In the 3rd degree the Mason is once again lies to, and is given a substitute word.  He is told to look "to that bright and Morning Star"... Abracadabra...

Freemasonry Lodge meetings are usually held in the upper chambers of their lodges. The worshippers of Baal (the Sun-god) erected their idols and altars on top of hills, among sacred groves, or on the roofs of houses.  And just as the Witches hold their meetings at night, so does the Freemason meet at night.

Following is the sort of "knowledge" would be Masons pay "big bucks" and make blood curdling oaths to receive.  It is sheer nonsense... To a Christian or Jew it's pure blasphemy also.

 

Manly Palmer Hall, a great authority on Masonry, writes, "When the Mason ... has learned the mystery of his Craft, the seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands. ..." (Manly Palmer Hall, The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, p. 48). 


 

Regarding the identity of God, in Scottish Rite Masonry, the 13th degree is that of the Royal Arch.  In it, the alleged true, previously hidden name of God is revealed as Jabulum.  "The Encyclopedia of Freemasonry," page 359, affirms this, under the entry for Jabulum, yet does not give the meaning.  But in the same book on page 102, in the definition of Bel, the meaning is given.  It says, "Bel is the contracted form of . . . Baal, and was worshipped by the Babylonians as their chief deity . . . It has, with Jah and Oh, been introduced into the Royal Arch system as a representative of the" name of God.  Jah represents the name Jehovah, Bel represents Baal, and Oh represents Osiris.

Genesis 1:26 (4000 B.C.): "And God said, Let us make man in our image."

 Proverbs 30:4 (written 700 B.C.): "...What is His name, and what is His son's name, if thou canst tell?"

 

John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Masonry's Grandest Error
(
Masonry cannot be the way to Jesus Christ)

Masonry insists that "we climb up into heaven".  In John 10:9 Jesus warned us:   "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. "

In the 17th Knight of the East and West degree, we see more Masonic blasphemy and disobedience:

The candidate is lanced slightly on his arm as if he is taking the part of the Lamb who was slain, even though Scripture tells us in Leviticus 21:5 not to make any cuttings in our flesh - as pacts with the devil were usually done that way. Attached to the Bible are seven seals as if mocking the seven seals of Revelation. The seven seals are opened in this ceremony.  Yet we know that ONLY Christ, the Lamb was found worthy to open the seals. The candidate mocks Christ shedding His blood for us, and tries to take Christ's place, by opening the 7 seals.

Another Diabolocal Reversal
The Masonic Temple itself

God took great amount of time spelling out exactly how His Temple (Solomon's Temple) should look.  In God's Temple, one entered from the east and gradually proceeded in holiness to ultimately the Holy of Holies on the West side of the Temple. God presides on the North side.

In a diabolical twist, Masonic Temples have their alter in the opposite side of the Temple. The Masons enter in the west vs from the east. This is diabolically significant as say the diabolical 3 AM "witching hour" as an inversion and mockery of the hour when Jesus is believed to have died on the cross (3 PM). It's a dead giveaway to even the most naive among us as to who their alter is really honoring. This reverse image is very prevalent in the occult. The occult teachings seem to always be the negative image of the positive of God’s Word. The Masonic Temple always has the entrance in the west and the altar in the east. In the Bible we are told the entrance of the Garden of Eden was in the east. Solomon’s Temple (and subsequent Jewish Temples) had their entrances in the east and the Holy of Holies in the west. To enter the Garden of Eden and go to the Tree of Life, one was traveling from east to west. To enter the Tabernacle or the Temple to approach God, the priest traveled from east to west. Freemasonry is 180 degrees reversed.

"The east" is the location within the Lodge Hall where the Worshipful Master sits upon his throne/chair of authority.  In the ancient mystery religions, from which Freemasonry springs, the Sun was worshipped, and the most sacred direction was east, where the sun arose each morning to renew life on earth. The position of the feet is no coincidence when facing the Worshipful Master "in the East."  Satan comes from the East also.  He resides in the East.  The position of the feet forms the "Tau Cross," a phallic symbol from antiquity associated with phallic worship and Sun worship. The Sun was viewed as a phallic symbol, rising each day  as the source of life (male), to impregnate the earth (female) with new life.  Such worship was always done facing East.  In the Masonic rituals, the command to "STAND ERECT" is not a coincidence.  It relates to this phallic worship.

See example here
 

MARK MASTER DEGREE

Freemasonry mocks the Lord Jesus Christ (who is the Chief Corner Stone in Scripture) and the infallible teaching of Holy Writ in this deceptive degree, when they maliciously try to corrupt the truth of God's Word.

In typical Rosicrucian manner, they deliberately spiritualize that which is intended to be literal and literalize that which is meant to be spiritual. Thus, the Chief Corner Stone mentioned in Scripture (which is a clear symbolic reference to Christ) is blasphemously reduced to a literal physical brick corner-stone which is profanely paraded round the Chapter room.

 The "Illuminati", Masons & Rosicrucian's

The Illuminati are the top echelon of a vast network of organizations which make up a Secret Brotherhood covering the globe. Within this network are found 6 major divisions: Banking & Money, Secret Societies, Political, Intelligence, Religions, and Education. The Secret Societies encompass the elite Prieuré de Sion, the Rosicrucians, the Orders of Freemasonry, Skull & Bones, the Grand Orient Lodge, the Grand Alpina Lodge, the Knights Templar, the Royal Order of the Garter. According to one Rosicrucian book Holy Blood, Holy Grail, although the Prieuré de Sion is the elite society that created the Knights Templar, the order from which the other societies originated, this august body has maintained a low profile from its inception and remains behind the scenes orchestrating critical events in Western history.

"The Prieuré de Sion is thought to exist today, and is believed by many to be still operative.  If so, it may be influential and playing a role in high-level international affairs as well as in the domestic affairs of certain European countries and the EU... The avowed and declared objective of the Prieuré de Sion is the restoration of the Merovingian dynasty and bloodline - not only to the throne of France, but to the thrones of other European nations as well."

According to Holy Blood, Holy Grail, the infamous Protocols of the Elders of Sion have been slanderously misrepresented and are, instead of an evil conspiracy, a humanitarian proposal authored by the elite Prieuré de Sion. In other words, the proposed new world order of the Prieuré will be a benevolent "Masonic kingdom" led by a new king of "the holy seed of David."


The Illuminati regarded the Catholic Church as their chief enemy and marked it for ruin. In 1818, their Italian lodge issued a set of Permanent Instructions that included: "We require a Pope for ourselves...to march more securely to the storming of the church...." The goal was "the complete annihilation of the Catholicism and even ultimately of Christianity. If Christianity were to revive, even upon the ruins of Rome, it would, a little late revive and live." (13-14)
 

Pope Leo XIII
Pope Leo XIII, pope from 1878-1903


On April 20, 1884, Pope Leo XIII published his magnificent Encyclical "Humanum Genus" on the evils of Freemasonry.  His well-founded dislike for Masons was his belief that they exclude Jesus Christ, and instead bow down to some unknown impersonal god (or fallen angel) -- their generic "grand architect of the universe" (GAOTU).  This Masonry peril was denounced for the first time by Pope Clement XII in 1738, and the Constitution promulgated by that Pope was renewed and confirmed by Benedict XIV; Pius VII followed in the footsteps of those Pontiffs, and Pope Leo XII including in his Apostolical Constitution 'Quo Graviora' (called them Macons) all the deeds and decrees of the preceding Popes on that subject, ratified and confirmed them for ever. Popes Pius VIII, Gregory XVI and on several occasions Pope Pius IX spoke in the same manner."

Leo XIII said; "Today evil doers all seem allied in a tremendous effort inspired by and with the help of a society powerfully organized and widely spread over the world, it is the Society of Freemasons. In fact those people no longer even try to dissimulate their intentions, but they actually challenge each other's audacity in order to assail God's August Majesty.

Pope Leo XIII defines the Masonic point of view on morality thus:

"The only thing which has found grace before the members of the Masonic sect and in which they request that youth should receive the proper teaching is what they call 'Civic Morality', independent morality, free morality, in other words a morality in which religious beliefs find no room. This morality is insufficient and its effects are its own condemnation.

"Furthermore there have been found in Freemasonry several sectarians who have maintained that all means are to be systematically used, in order, to saturate the multitudes with licentiousness and vices; because in their opinion peoples would naturally fall into their hands and become the instruments needed for the accomplishment of their most audacious evil projects. Such counter-morality is that of civil marriage, of divorce, of free love and of irreligious education for youth. "

"It aims at the complete destruction of the main foundations of justice and honesty. In this way Freemasons make themselves the auxiliaries of those who wish that, like an animal, man had no other rule of conduct than his own desires -- Such a scheme can only dishonor human kind and ignominiously cast him into perdition."
 

Ironically, when Leo XIII died in 1903, a Freemason, Cardinal Mariano Rampolla, was almost elected Pope. Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria vetoed his appointment in the last moment.

The Roman Catholic church was officially opposed to the group ever since 1738, when Pope Clement XII condemned Freemasonry and banned it from his faith. Catholics were forbidden from joining, under pain of excommunication. In 1825, Leo XII reiterated the ban and declared it to be permanent and everlasting. In 1884, Leo XIII called on each member of the clergy to get the word out and help defeat this insidious foe:

We pray and beseech you, venerable brethren, to join your efforts with Ours, and earnestly to strive for the extirpation of this foul plague, which is creeping through the veins of the body politic. [...] We wish it to be your rule first of all to tear away the mask from Freemasonry, and to let it be seen as it really is; and by sermons and pastoral letters to instruct the people as to the artifices used by societies of this kind in seducing men and enticing them into their ranks, and as to the depravity of their opinions and the wickedness of their acts.

As early as 1738, Pope Clement XII described Freemasonry as "Satan's synagogue" as reported by Rupert Cornwell in his book "God's Banker".

A more detailed early exposure of Freemasonry than in God's Banker can be found in Abbe Augusten de Barruel's book from the late 1700's called "Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism".  In this book, de Barruel, who lived in Revolutionary France charged that many years prior to the French Revolution, men who called themselves "philosophers" had conspired against the God of the Gospel, against Christianity, without distinction of worship.  The grand object of the "conspiracy," the Abbe asserted, was to overthrow every altar where Christ was adored.  These philosophers, the Abbe said, formed the sophisters of rebellion, who joined with Freemasons --a group characterized as having a "long history" of hatred for Christ and kings.  From this coalition he said, came the "Sophisters of Impiety and Anarchy," who conspired against every religion, every government, against civil society, and even against all property.."  This latter crowd became known as the Illuminati, from which sprang the Jacobins.  Reference: "Behind the Lodge Door", page 26

This opposition to Freemasonry persisted into the 20th century. Pope Pius XII hated them.

 

Charles Finney on Freemasonry

Did you know that noted Christian Evangelist Charles Finney was a Freemason and Lawyer before the Holy Spirit gloriously saved him? With his intimate knowledge of the rituals, degrees and oaths, Finney devastates all claims Freemasonry makes to being a Christian organization.
 


Can Masonry Offer a Christian more than Jesus?

 
Does Freemasonry go too far by declaring all religions equal? See Islam's root history here

Satan has an "End Plan"!
 
In addition to Satan's never ending plan to annihilate Israel, Satan does deceive people - and wishes to lead them away from the truth.  In the case of Masons and Muslims, Satan would prefer one believe that good character and good works will get them to heaven. He is also using Muslim hatred against Christians and Jews around the world right now to accomplish his wishes.  Satan often uses Christians against Christians (Protestants against Catholics and Catholics against Protestants).  Muslims hurling hatred from their mosques are slaves to the prince of darkness - as are occultist sects like Masons, Rosicrucian's and New Agers.  Muslims are also slaves to Satan, because they reject the salvation made possible by the Son of God.

In the 19th degree of Scottish Rite Freemasonry, the initiate is told that attachment to Masonry's "statutes and rules of the order" will make him "deserving of entering the celestial Jerusalem [heaven]." In the 28th degree, he is told that "the true Mason [is one] who raises himself by degrees till he reaches heaven" and that one of his duties is "To divest [him]self of original sin ..." Masons clearly teach a salvation by works, or character development, not a salvation by faith in Christ alone. Even in the 32nd Degree, a Mason never can nor will find the "light" he is looking for.

Will the "sons of God" (fallen Angels) return to earth on December 21, 2012 and establish a new world order, led by an unearthly powerful ruler?

Coat of arms for FREEMASONS....

Note figures have red fur  and cloven hooves along with wings. The overall picture would appear at first to represent angels but then what angels have you ever seen with cloven hooves and red fur. Also very important to note... most depictions of angels include arms and hands. These creatures do not possess arms or hands so we can only conclude that they are some form of lesser angel or more probably devils.

Jesus emphatically declared in John 3: 18-19 that the basis for deciding one's eternal destiny is whether they accept Jesus, the Light of the world. Good character and good works can exist in a person who is not saved.  Jesus said; "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." Freemasonry has "missed" or replaced entirely the most important part of the above statements.

"A Freemason Temple: Satan's Clubhouse". Or as Pope Clement XII described it as: "Satan's synagogue"
   

Catholics are NOT free to become Freemasons
Why?  Because of its Religion nature and masons worship false idols

Catholics are not free to become Masons. Catholic membership in the Freemasons has been condemned by eight popes. The 1917 Code of Canon Law applied the censure of excommunication to Catholics who became Freemasons. The most recent statement issued by the Vatican (Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, now Benedict XVI) dates back to November 26, 1983. The 1983 Code (Canon 1374) did not explicitly mention excommunication. In part it declared: "The Church's negative position on Masonic associations remains unaltered since their principles have always been regarded as irreconcilable with the Church's doctrine." That document adds: "Catholics enrolled in Masonic associations are involved in serious sin and may not approach holy Communion."

 

Masonry is a Religion!

Masonry has a distinctly religious character, a fact which may surprise many American Masons who have joined the Lodge for business, social or political reasons. They will be tempted to deny its religious character. They look upon Masonry as a purely fraternal organization and do not consider it a religion. Either they do not know the true constitution of their Lodge, or Masonic authorities are violating the principles of Masonry, for they definitely emphasize its religious character.

Freemasons insist Freemasonry is not a religion. However, it is strange that the room they meet in is referred to as a ‘temple’, the seat the Worshipful Master (the chairman for that year) sits on is referred to as an ‘altar’ and the ceremonies end with the phrase ‘so mote it be’ - the same words used in major satanic rituals. A blue lodge always has an altar. Altars are always associated with religious worship and sacrifice.

Masons don't want anyone to think Masonry is a religion because it may turn off "real Christians", Jews, and Muslims; and that means less dues. And less money for each degree masons have to pay for --for which they learn nothing but frivolous things about the occult and ancient pagan gods. The God of Masonry is Lucifer (the light giver). Most Masons who deny that Masonry is a religion confuse religion with the Christian religion. They know Masonry is not Christian since if it were their Jewish and Moslem brethren would object.

It may be fairly assumed that the Grand Lodge of the State of New York knew what it was talking about when arguing its case against a certain Robert Kopp in a trial before the Appellate division of the New York Supreme Court in 1903. Kopp had been expelled from the fraternity and had appealed the action of his brethren to the civil court. One of the strong points made by the Grand Lodge during the trial was as follows:

“The right to membership in the Masonic fraternity is very much like membership in the church. Each requires a candidate for admission to subscribe to certain articles of religious belief as an essential prerequisite for membership. Each requires a member to conduct himself thereafter in accordance with certain religious principles. Each requires its members to adhere to certain doctrines of belief and action...”

Henry Wilson Coil is the author of the encyclopedia that many lodges now accept as their authoritative source (Coil's Masonic Encyclopedia). Coil says that if Freemasonry is not a religion, nothing would have to be added to make it such, and that the religious service at the funeral of a Mason is evidence enough that Freemasonry is a religion. But the fact that Freemasonry is religion would not necessarily condemn it, except that the views of the Masonic religion are in open conflict with Biblical Christianity, so much so that, in our opinion, a knowledgeable and committed Mason could not possibly be a true Christian.


“The Masonic fraternity may, therefore, be quite properly regarded as a religious society, shall have sole and exclusive jurisdiction to determine matters of membership, should be deemed applicable to the Masonic fraternity.” Such a statement speaks for itself.

Remember, Masons think so highly about this (Albert Pike) extremely fat, occultist, Massachusetts Tory, and ex-Confederate General who was brought up on charges of mutilating Union soldier bodies --that they have his body buried in

a secret crypt under the stairway, beneath his bust - at their main "Temple" in Washington, D.C.  Pike is the only Freemason to be given this "honor".   Surprisingly enough - Pike who evidence suggests was also a KKK member, has somehow managed to get Masons to erect a statue to him in of all places - Washington, D.C.

A brief description of the “articles of religious belief which are an essential prerequisite to membership,” can be found in the writings of the Grand Master, Albert Pike, generally admitted to be the best authority on Masonic matters in America. “Masonry propagates no creed,” he wrote in The Inner Sanctuary:

“except its own most simple and most sublime one taught by Nature and Reason. There has never been a false religion in the world. The permanent one universal revelation is written in visible Nature and explained by Reason and is completed by the wise analogies of faith. There is one true religion, one dogma, one legitimate belief.

So according to Masons, even Religions such as Hinduism, Satanism, Islam and present day Rabbinic Judaism --which lead souls away from Jesus Christ as their Lord, Savior and only mediator --are NOT false religions...
 

Of interest about Masonry is this 1977 Prophecy by Our Lady of Bayside, New York:

Freemasonry is not of God


"My children, recognize the faces of evil now loosed in the world. I bring you a sad lesson in knowledge. In the past We have counseled through prophets, your Popes, to forbid all who have joined in My Son's Church, forbid them to become part of freemasonry and the Masons. And why? Because, My children, they are not of God, and if they are not of God, they are the Antichrist. And why are they the Antichrist? Because they worship false idols!"

- Our Lady, November 1, 1977

 

This fundamental Catholic reason can be briefly stated. The following summary passage from Leo XIII's <Humanum Genus> suffices.

. . . that which is their ultimate purpose forces itself into view—namely, the utter overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced, and the substitution of a new state of things in accordance with their ideas, of which the foundations and laws shall be drawn from mere "Naturalism."...

Now, the fundamental doctrine of the Naturalists, which they sufficiently make known by their very name, is that human nature and human reason ought in all things to be mistress and guide. Laying this down, they care little for duties to God, or pervert them by erroneous and vague opinions. For they deny that anything has been taught by God; they allow no dogma of religion or truth which cannot be understood by the human intelligence, nor any teacher who ought to be believed by reason of his authority. And since it is the special and exclusive duty of the Catholic Church fully to set forth in words truths divinely received, to teach, besides other divine helps to salvation, the authority of its office, and to defend the same with perfect purity, it is against the Church that the rage and attack of the enemies are principally directed.

 

 

Will Freemasonry unite with other "Societies with Secrets" to be the building block which will usher in the New World Order - which the Anti-Christ will gain control if? 

Has Masonry substituted Masonry for a real relationship with the living God of the universe through His Son!

Always hovering over Masonry are the:
JACOBINS / Illuminati

The rank and file of the lower degrees of Masonry to this day have no clue as to the purpose of the society or the intentions of the controlling elite.

About 1750, there arose a new generation of mystical knights. They were the arm of Freemasonry, which called themselves Jacobins.  The Jacobin cries of "Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity" led the first major accomplishment of illuminized Freemasonry, The French Revolution. The Jacobins named a rebellious ex-Jesuit, Adam Weishaupht, "Grand Patriot".  Weishaupht embraced the occult mysteries and organized The Order of the Illuminati in 1776. By 1778 he infiltrated Masonry as a fully-initiated Master Mason. He then inducted the influential European elite of Masonry into the Illuminati—600 men by 1783.  On the other side of the Atlantic, mystical Masons were under siege by the occult Illuminists. The Illuminists saw America as the 13th step in evolution, and America’s spiritual destiny as accomplishing world union in the spirit of liberty, equality, and fraternity.  By 1789 the mystical Masonry of the New World succumbed to the occult one-world vision of the Weishaupht Illuminati, the guardians of the Ancient Mysteries of Nimrod. It is worthy to remember that the Ancient Mystery Religions did not worship the God of the Bible. Nimrod was the servant of Lucifer, and the resulting religious system was Luciferic.

The unrest of the 1960s and the rise of the "Drug Culture" molded the beginnings of another public re-emergence of occultism. The New Age Movement of the 70s and 80s successfully mainstreamed many occult beliefs. This new renaissance of the occult has perfectly positioned Freemasonry to play a vital role in the 4400-year-old dream of Nimrod, a one-world, occult kingdom. Freemasonry currently serves as the conduit between the political organizations of the global elite (Club of Rome, Trilateral Commission, Bilderbergers, CFR, etc.) and the occult groups of the Theosophical network (Theosophical Society, Rosicrucians, Lucis Trust, World Goodwill, etc.).

 

“Alice Bailey, foundress of the Lucifer Trust, the Theosophical and Satanist organization which lies behind UNESCO, predicted in 1919, the appearance of ‘a Universal Church’ of which ‘the definitive outline will appear toward the end of the century’ and which shall keep ‘the outward appearance amid the mission to strike out at the many vehicles of colloquial ecclesiastical usage.’...:

There will not be any dissociation between the Universal Church, the Sacred Lodge of all true Masons and the inner circles of the esoteric societies... In this way, the goals and work of the United Nations shall be solidified and a new Church of God, led by all the religions and by all of the spiritual groups, shall put an end to the great heresy of separateness.’

Alice Bailey once said:

"The Masonic Movement is the custodian of the law,
the holder of the Mysteries, and the seat of initiation
… a far more occult organization than can be
realized … intended to be the training school for coming advanced occultists."

 

L’Eglise Eclipsée (The Church in Eclipse) by Les Amis de Christ-Roi (by The Friends of Christ the King), Editions Delacroix, 1997 Paris, from Chapter 1, titled: Toward the Marriage of the Cross and the Triangle, quoting Alice Bailey, Esteriorizzazione della gerarchia, Ediziones Nuova Era, Rome, 1985, p. 476.) [Externalization of the Hierarchy],, 1985, pp. 476, 478 and Il destino delle Nazioni, Ediziones Nuova Era, Rome, 1988, p. 155 (quoted by Professor Carlo Alberto Agnoli, op. cit.).

"Among the ancient nations, not only were statues of the gods and goddesses in human form made, other objects with a hidden or mystery meaning such as obelisks, were a part of heathen worship. There appears to be an active interest in obelisks on the part of the Masonic Order. A book published by the Freemasons titled Obelisks provides detailed information on the Babylonian origins of Masonry and many ancient obelisks around the world. Two of these were removed from Egypt a few years prior to the completion of the Washington Monument -- one was placed in London in 1878 and the other in New York in 1880. 

The National Park Service conducts the National Historic Landmarks Program which provides on the Internet a history of the Washington Monument. On t

he sidebar of the Home Page, the category "Masonic Stones" yields an interesting page detailing the involvement of the Masonic Order in raising funds for the monument, laying the cornerstone and performing official Masonic ceremonies for the laying of the cornerstone and final dedication of the monument.

"Interestingly enough, there is also an obelisk at the entrance of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome… It is not a mere copy of an Egyptian obelisk, it is the very same obelisk that stood in Egypt in ancient times!

"Diodorus spoke of an obelisk 130 feet high that was erected by queen Semiramis in Babylon. The Bible mentions an obelisk-type image approximately nine feet in breadth and ninety feet high: 'The people…fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up' in Babylon (Dan. 3:1-7). But it was in Egypt (an early stronghold of the mystery religion) that the use of the obelisk was best known.

Books of Freemasonry, Theosophy and other mystery religions state that it is not intended that the "uninitiated" or lower orders understand occult symbols, but it is important that they ignorantly venerate and even worship them. It is further believed by esotericists that the obelisks and other monoliths hold the sacred mysteries which were known to the ancient religions. Throughout the ages, these mysteries or secret doctrines have been entrusted only to the adepts -- the sages or "elect" -- nevertheless, they will be revealed to the world at the end of the age.

The Solemn horrible Oaths

Each succeeding degree in Masonry has a similar horrible oath and penalty connected with it with that Oath below. But Jesus commanded His followers to "not swear at all" (Matthew 5:34; James 5:12). In addition, Jesus would never sanction these required oaths, for He said: "I have said nothing in secret" (John 18:20).

Question all the omissions of/about Jesus Christ, and all the terrible un-Christian "swearings".  In Masonry, each entering Apprentice says;

"... most solemnly and sincerely promise and swear, that I will always hail, ever conceal, and never reveal, any of the arts, parts or points of the hidden mysteries of ancient Freemasonry. ... All this I most solemnly, sincerely promise and swear, with a firm and steadfast resolution to perform the same, without any mental reservation or secret evasion of mine whatever binding myself under no less a penalty than that of having my throat cut across, my tongue torn out by its roots, and buried in the rough sand of the sea at low water mark where the tide ebbs and flows twice in twenty-four hours, should I ever knowingly or willingly violate my solemn oath and obligation as an Entered Apprentice Mason. So help me, God."

From his initiation as an Entered Apprentice on up into the highest degrees of Freemasonry, the individual Mason is told that his sworn duty is to construct, through public service and adherence to the doctrines of the Lodge, a "spiritual temple" -- his own good works being the building material. This goal is allegedly based upon the following passage from the Bible: "...[Y]e also, as living stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God...." (1 Peter 2:5).  The remainder of the verse "by Jesus Christ." is invariably omitted.  

In the second, Fellowcraft degree, for example, the candidate binds himself to his oath "under no less penalty than to have my left breast torn open and my heart and vitals taken from thence and thrown over my left shoulder and carried into the valley of Jehosaphat."

The true Christian knows that it is only through the atoning work of the Savior in his behalf that his works of righteousness are acceptable to God the Father, for apart from faith in Jesus Christ and in the redemption of the cross, all religious endeavors are as worthless as "filthy rags" (Isaiah 64:6). It is disturbing, therefore, to find this very necessary clause of 1 Peter 2:5 ominously absent when the verse is quoted in Masonic proceedings. This, wrote Albert Mackey (Mackey, Albert. History of Freemasonry) is a "slight but necessary modification."  The Masonic Lodge likewise deletes the Name of Jesus Christ from 2 Thessalonians 3:6 and 3:12 when these verses are quoted in the Masonic ritual.

Because Masons have rejected the chief Cornerstone of the Christian faith (1 Peter 2:6-8).  Their so-called "spiritual temples" are therefore corrupt and unstable right down to the very foundations. The Mason’s endeavors to perfect himself, regardless of how sincere, are therefore in vain, and will ultimately subject him to the judgment of God and maybe the destruction of his soul.
 

In the initiation of an Entered Apprentice, the "Worshipful Master" (Mat. 23:10) asks: "In your present condition, what do you most desire?" The candidate responds: "Light." The "Master" later informs the candidate that he is "yet in darkness." Then for the Second Degree (Fellow Craft) the candidate is required to ask for "more light." According to God's word, Jesus Christ is the LIGHT (John 1:9; 8:12) and God's word is LIGHT (Psa. 119:105, 130). If you are saved, then it is an outright BLASPHEMY for you to agree that you are "yet in darkness" and to ask for "more light."


Knights Templar Initiation Ritual
 

The following is taken from pages 67-68 of the book, Masonry: Beyond The Light, by former Mason, William Schnoebelen: "The high point of the KT initiation is when the candidate is brought before a large, triangular table covered in black velvet illuminated by candles and containing eleven silver goblets and a human skull enthroned on the Bible. (Skulls figure prominently throughout this initiation.)"


"This is intended to be the Last Supper. It seems but a grim mockery, though. The visual effect is more satanic than Christian, especially to one accustomed to the Table of the Lord in churches. However, the ambiance is the least of the problems."
 

"The candidate is asked to partake of five libations, (toasts). The first three libations are given, respectively, to the memory of Masonic heroes King Solomon, Hiram, King of Tyre, and Hiram Abif. The fourth libation is to the memory of Simon of Cyrene, and the fifth is the most sinister of all."
 

"The candidate is never told to whom the fifth libation is drunk (it is "sealed"), and it is offered to him in a human skull!..."
 

After the toast in this ritual, the candidate is required to take an oath which makes him the sin-bearer of his own sins and the sins of the person from whom the skull was taken. Does this sound like something that a Christian man should do?!

Masons call all religions equal

The Religiosity of Freemasons

 

It is worthy to remember that although there are a lot of decent people in the Lodge, in a spiritual sense they are not aware of that they are doing, at least some of them, for it is the spirit of darkness that has control over them.


Testimony of Duane Washum - Past Worshipful Master

At first I did not notice that none of the prayers are in the name of Jesus Christ. "Great Architect of the Universe," "Almighty Father of the Universe," "Judge Supreme," "God," and "Lord," yes, but never in the name of "Jesus Christ." I then became aware that there is no mention of Jesus Christ in any of the prayers or in the ritual book. I resigned. Besides, to stay in Masonry would mean to deny Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior in my prayers.


Testimony of Jack Harris, Past Worshipful Master

I had not realized that those who were members of anti-Christian religions could become Masons. He advised me that as Grand Master he had the authority to disband my Lodge and remove its Charter as a Lodge, if I persisted in using the name of Jesus with members present who objected. I now had an irresistible force meeting an immovable object, namely the God of the Universe, Jesus Christ, and the god of Freemasonry, Satan. After reading and studying various Masonic authors, I realized that Freemasonry considers Jesus Christ as no greater than Moses, Elijah, Mohammed, or Buddha. I renounced all of the branches of Freemasonry that I was a member of, including the Blue Lodge, Royal Arch Chapter, Knights Templar, and the Shrine (A.A.O.N.M.S.). They all teach doctrines contrary to God’s word, and lead men to Hell, instead of to Heaven.

Testimony of a Former Rainbow Girl

At 18, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord. However, I lacked spiritual guidance and maturity. Rainbow had Bible-like sayings that sounded "church-y", so I perceived Christianity and the teachings of Rainbow to be the same. How wrong I was. If a person fully understands Christianity and fully understands Masonry, they will realize that the two are like oil and water – they just don’t mix. They are NOT the same and they are NOT compatible. The god of Masonry is NOT the God of the Bible.

 

DeMolay, Lodge and then Christ

A Mason who had second thoughts wrote:
My readings in Blackmer helped me realize the origins of Masonic rituals in Egyptian sun worship. Finally, the Grand-Omnific Royal Arch Word as an amalgamation of Jehovah with two other pagan gods (in JAH-BUL-ON) was nothing less than blasphemous. I could not dismiss this, because Blue Lodge and Royal Arch Masonry are the only two, true original forms of the Craft.  Therefore, it did not matter what other types of Christian window-dressings were placed into the York or Scottish Rites. It also does not matter how much they attempt to change the rituals to be more palatable to Christians, since the origins, to me, betray the focus. 


 

Martyn Attard was a Freemason for around six years and who renounced the fraternity for Catholicism.

“Freemasons are hoodwinked immediately with the very first oath they take as an Entered Apprentice - the first degree of Freemasonry. At that stage a person states he would rather kill himself than reveal the secrets of Freemasonry,” said Martyn Attard.

In the 1980s, a successful businessman in his late 20s, drowning in alcohol and leading a lifestyle based on sex, power and money, Mr Attard became a Freemason.  Once I was accepted in Freemasonry and in a Lodge that made ‘good men better’ I simply drank more! The bar at the Marsamxett Lodge was open every Saturday morning and beverage prices were very reasonable so I rarely missed the weekly informal gathering,” he remarked.

When I joined Freemasonry I was told I was living in darkness, and I could only see the light through Freemasonry. Having resigned from the organization now I know with certainty that it is Freemasons who are in darkness. Jesus Christ is the only light,” Mr Attard said.

Freemasons insist Freemasonry is not a religion. However, it is strange that the room they meet in is referred to as a ‘temple’, the seat the Worshipful Master (the chairman for that year) sits on is referred to as an ‘altar’ and the ceremonies end with the phrase ‘so mote it be’ - the same words used in major satanic rituals,” Mr Attard explained. “Even the Jehovah's Witness founder (Russel) was in fact a Freemason as well as a Knight Templar. All Knight Templars are Freemasons.”

Freemasonry ‘controls’ around six million members worldwide, the majority being in the USA. Freemasonry is the UK's largest secular, fraternal and charitable organization, and the United Grand Lodge of England has over 300,000 members working in nearly 8,000 Lodges throughout England and Wales and more than 30,000 members overseas.

It was a good friend who introduced him to the world of Freemasonry - he calls a secret society. Freemasons say the criteria for becoming a Freemason is a belief in a Superior Being referred to as G.A.O.T.U. (the Great Architect Of The Universe), strict morals and a willingness to help others.

“Freemasons claim they do not belong to a secret society, but a society with secrets. However, the most important secret is that very few members know the secret of what they are involved in,” Mr Attard said. “Freemasonry is a society within a larger society, the former gradually eating away the latter.”

The ultimate goal of Freemasonry is to take charge of the world and eventually become A One World Government - the recent terminology being used is globalization. The idea is also to replace all religions with the one true Masonic religion.


 
 

The Israel Connection

Masonic power growing in Israel

Eilat, Israel

Above Mason Memorial in Eilat, Israel
 

There is only one road leading from Eilat to the Egyptian border at Taba and the last circle before getting to the border you will find this Masonic Memorial in the middle of the road. As usual symbolism means everything in this organization. The two columns represents the two pillars of Solomon’s Temple.

It's obvious Satan's Clubhouse (Masonry) is having something to do with Israeli society being mostly secular, and not spiritual. One must first understand, that under their canopy of one "Great Architect of the Universe" theology, Masonry has been adept at making "strategic alliances" with Satanists, The Brotherhood, Spiritists, Wicca, Druids, Cabalists, Hindu and Islam. Shriners are Masonry's Islamic wing. It is from this alliance that their "Messiah" will appear. Masons treat all these groups and beliefs as all equal. Christianity which views all the above as pagans is simply one among many to a Mason.

Freemasonry has always planned to gain control of the Temple Mount, so they can rebuild Solomon's Temple. As soon as they rebuild this Temple, their Masonic Christ will appear on the earth, claiming to be the Jewish Messiah for whom Israel has long been awaiting. This "Christ" will be the Biblical Antichrist.  Christian writer Texe Marrs writes: On the heap of its ruins, the Masons intend to build a Jewish Masonic temple where they and their satanically energized messiah shall worship and pay homage to the Egyptian double-headed eagle deity, Mammon-Ra, the god of money and prosperity (Daniel 11:37-39).


It is obvious that the Masonic presence is not only very present but getting very bold throughout Israel. The Masonic Grand Lodge meets in Tel-Aviv, but there are Masonic Temples (about 70) in all important cities, from Nahariya in the north to Eilat, Israel's southern port on the Red Sea. See the numerous Masonic lodges in Israel: here

 
The Quest to Rebuild the Temple

- Two weeks after the 1967 Six-Day War which saw Jerusalem and the Temple Mount brought under Israeli control, there occurred the greatest freemasonic meeting in history in London, celebrating 250 years since the founding of UGLE  (United Grand Lodge of England), at which the Duke of Kent was installed as the new Grand Master.

- Shortly after, the QC Lodge dispatched a member, the Jewish physicist Dr. Asher Kaufman, to begin studies on the exact location of where the Temple originally stood.

- The Temple Mount Faithful was also established at this time by Stanley Goldfoot, which is presently led by Gershon Solomon.

- In December of 1995, a month after Rabin was assassinated, the Jerusalem Lodge (91) was established adjacent to the Temple Mount in the underground Grotto of King Solomon.  This lodge was founded by Giuliano Di Bernardo, and at the opening ceremony he declared,
"The rebuilding of the Temple is at the center of our studies."

Baphomet
Baphomet

Professor Giuliano Di Bernardo:

- First Grand Master of the Regular Grand Lodge of Italian freemasonry.
For the previous three years he had been Grand Master of the Grand Orient of Italy (GOI), from which body he had resigned shortly after the Grand Orient of Italy annual meeting at the end of March 1993..  Upon quitting the GOI, Di Bernardo accused his old lodge of Satanic rituals saying, "in the lodges of the GOI, obscene rites are practiced, deriving from the Templar tradition, in which the devil Baphomet is invoked, together with the Supreme Being." 

- Lord Northampton is an avid supporter of Di Bernardo and has charged him with the task of preparing the way for rebuilding the Temple. In June, 1996 Bernardo published his book in Italian: "Rebuilding the Temple",
which was to be published in English by the Quatuor Coronati Lodge.   In an interview he explains his goal, "A new utopia may be based on the cabala. I see a utopia based on Jewish mysticism, but Jewish mysticism as a place... a material place, Solomon's Temple... This is my intention. This is my will!"

Yet another Satanism, Occult & Masonry connection.  Look no further to Lord Northampton's comments on Aleister Crowley  - the most famous occultist and The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn - one of the most famous occult societies of the 20th Century.  Lord Northampton said; "I know the Golden Dawn extremely well, and I love Aleister Crowley's poems and Macgregor Mathers, and all those people and I know all the people in England who are still practicing it, and I have done the rituals. I have done all these things. Great fun. Tremendously exciting!"   Crowley wrote an account of his spiritual progress in magic and Satanism under the title "The Temple of Solomon the King."

Of particular interest regarding the British Quatuor Coronati Masonic Lodge and extreme interest in the Jerusalem Temple Mount is the fact that Sir Charles Warren was the first grand master of the Quatuor Coronati Lodge Lodge. He was also the president of the Palestine Exploration Fund, and two decades earlier had been the chief engineer for British excavations of the Temple Mount.

- Lord Northampton, who has been atop the Temple Mount conducting "Temple studies," candidly has admitted in interviews, that he is an adherent of British Israelism, which holds that the British oligarchy has mystical powers, because England was colonized by one of the lost tribes of Israel. "I think the tradition of the Kabbalah is very strong in England, because I think one of the lost tribes came to England. And I think you can spot them, quite clearly, in old English families. I am sure you can. I know they came to Ireland, then to the north of Wales, and then down into England. And then that became some of the oldest families we have."

- Di Bernardo has also spoken of how the director of the ADL of B'nai B'rith, Abe Foxman, is a collaborator in the plan to rebuild the Temple, and that he, Foxman and Lord Northampton met in Switzerland just prior to the launching of the Jerusalem Lodge, to discuss the project. Di Bernardo says that there are strong connections between B'nai B'rith and freemasonry.

July 15, 1968:  The President of the Moslem Court of Appeals turns down a request by an American Masonic Temple Order who asked permission to build a $100 Million "Solomon's" temple on the Temple Mount.

 

The Masonry Temple of All Religions...on the Temple Mount


Through its golden portals shall pass the New Zionist Messiah, King of Planet Earth. Before its evil altar he shall announce to all the world, via television, that their Universal Savior has finally come, a man knowledgeable of "the Holy Kabbalah, the exclusive heritage of the people of Israel" (Masonry's "Morals & Dogma", page 839).

Former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has publicly stated (see the Israeli publication Shishi, Spring 1994) that he was initiated into the Masonic Lodge while in the United States.

The Bnai B'rith Lodge of New York is affiliated with Israel's lodges and so is the hate-mongering ADL and ACLU, not to mention almost every top investment magnate on Wall Street in New York. Truly, the Holy Bible is proven true in its prophecy of great "merchants" who, in the last days, deceive the world through their commercial trade and their sorcery.

Reference for the above - Christian writer Texe Marrs: here


This fits in with Bible Codes found on Benjamin Netanyahu:

Masonic plan to reveal their Messiah on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

When we speak of Masonry, we need to speak of the occult, kabbalah (cabala), black magic, satanism, and spiritism. All forbidden by the Word of God. As we know, the dabbling in the occult, black magic and spiritism are all very good ways of inviting demons into ones life. Masonry takes all the world religions, ignores their teachings, and comes up with its own blend of enlightened man. This is what Masons mean by the "perfected man". He belongs to a fraternity which on the surface puts up the facade of benevolence, all the while directing and corralling its initiates to its true God - as Masonry Grand Master Albert Pike tells us: "Lucifer, the Light-bearer!"

John Dee, Wizard & original Agent 007


His fearsome appearance in a tall pointed hat and his penchant for crystal balls gave the world the archetype of the wizard after which dozens of story book wizards have been based, including Gandalf, Harry Potter, and even the Wizard of Oz. He founded the Rosicrucian order (the preeminent training School for the occult), the first of many magical secret societies, which promoted spiritual growth throughout the centuries.

John Dee (1527-1608) was an English mathematician, professor, and astronomer who gave it all up for the (at that time) more lucrative occupation of being an "angel channeler" and astrologer.

Dee eventually became Elizabeth's court astrologer, and soon after, her spy. As an agent of the crown, Dee conducted several mysterious missions for purposes mostly unknown to this day. He relished his espionage duties, creating elaborate, sophisticated ciphers. In his correspondence with the Queen during these episodes, he signed his communiqués "007," a moniker that would be used again, as any fan of the spy genre will recognize. The angelic channeler John Dee believed that specially constructed mirrors could draw magical power from the sun and transmit messages and objects to distant stars and other worlds. Dee attempted to receive visions from 'angels' using a globe of crystal.

Dee was born near London on the 13th of July 1527. He entered St. John's College at Cambridge at age 15. He achieved notoriety early on with a charge of sorcery, which stemmed from a mechanical flying beetle demonstrated in a stage play. After spending many years studying mathematics and cartography, he took an interest in natural magic, a pastime then accepted by the church. From his studies he developed a doctrine that one could obtain knowledge of God from the applied practice of magick- a controversial idea that was to get him into trouble on a number of occasions. Early in his "Magik" career, during the reign of Queen Mary Tudor (Bloody Mary), Dee was arrested and accused of attempting to kill her with sorcery. He was imprisoned in Hampton Court in 1553. Dee was imprisoned in England for the crime of ‘calculating’ –practicing the pagan craft of mathematics. He was accused of practicing black magic.

In 1564 one of his many books dealing with Occult matters, The Monas Heiroglyphica was published, the Monas Heiroglyphica is a symbol created by Dee, which he believed was the ultimate symbol of Occult knowledge. The following year he published Di Trigono.

Dee began his experiments in trying to contact discarnate entities in 1581, mainly fuelled by strange dreams, feelings and mysterious noises within his home. On 25 May 1582 he recorded that he had made his first contact with the spirit world, through the medium of his crystal ball. This had taken Dee years of work to achieve, through studying the occult, alchemy and crystallomancy. Spirit contact would prove to be a major driving force behind Dee for the rest of his life.

While Dee was away in Europe things were not boding well at home. In 1583 a large mob attacked Dee's home and library at Mortlake in Surrey destroying his collection of books, occult instruments and personal belongings. The attack was probably in response to rumors that Dee was a wizard.

DEE'S THEOLOGY (Isis & Osiris) IS EVERYWHERE IN MASONRY:

John Dee, Rosicrucian's and Freemason's all believe the same thing. And that's that benevolent "higher spiritual beings" are just waiting in one of many other dimensions to aid "Perfected Men" like Dee and Freemasons, men who have perfected themselves through proceeding up through the ranks of the secret societies. Freemason's are aware that God is opposed to this. The Bible calls these spiritual beings demons, with God forbidding such practices completely. This practice is called "necromancy", and is defined as "conjuration of the spirits of the dead for purposes of magically revealing the future or influencing the course of events" (Miriam Dictionary). In the following passages, God forbids this practice: Deuteronomy 18:11; 1 Samuel 28:7-19; Leviticus 19:31; and Leviticus 20:6.

"... one of Dee's biographers described him as 'Elizabethan England's great magus' ... Dee was a practitioner of 'Hermetic Gnosticism', a school of thought based on the ancient pre-Christian teachings of the Greek god Hermes. Hermes was in fact a mere copy of the much earlier Egyptian god of knowledge and language, Thoth. In this sense, all 'Hermetic Gnosticism' can be viewed as a worship of the teachings of Thoth. According to the Egyptian mythos, Thoth was one of the gods who came down to Earth, along with Isis and Osiris, to bring the fruits of knowledge, civilization and the sciences to the Egyptian people ... In 1581, using his knowledge of these ancient practices, he began a series of attempts to communicate with 'higher beings'. His channel in this capacity was one Sir Edward Kelly..."

The 007 was the insignia number that Elizabeth was to use for private communiques between her Court and Dee. Dee signed his letters with two circles (zeros) and a seven: “007". Dee was the man whom Ian Fleming modeled his 007 James Bond character.

TUBAL CAIN: Lamech was Cain’s fifth son. Lamech in turn had three sons: Jabal, Jubal, Tubalcain. Tubal Cain refers to blacksmiths from antiquity and the original Tubal Cain supposedly worked with bronze and iron in the far distant past.


[image]

If we simply rotate Dee’s 007 signature 90 degrees. It then looks like two balls and a club or a cane. The interesting thing about this is that there is a resemblance to the Masonic symbol "Two Ball Cane". “Two Ball Cane" is allegedly a pun for “Tubal Cain" which is the secret password of a third degree mason, a "master mason".

Listen to what occultist and Mason, Manly Palmer Hall, has to say:

"The day has come when Fellow Craftsman must know and apply their knowledge. The lost key to their grade is the mastery of emotion , which places the energy of the universe at their disposal. Man can only expect to be entrusted with great power by proving his ability to use it constructively and selflessly. When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the mastery of his craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply energy. He must follow in the footsteps of his forefather, Tubal-Cain, who with the mighty strength of the war god hammered his sword into a ploughshare." [Manly P. Hall, 33rd Degree, K.T., The Lost Keys of Freemasonry or The Secret of Hiram Abiff , Forward by Reynold E. Blight, 33rd Degree, K.T., Illustrations by J. Augustus Knapp, 32nd Degree, Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply Company, Inc., Richmond, Virginia, p. 48]

There is also a sexual connotation associated with Vulcan and Tubal Cain. Former Mason, Bill Schnoebelen, explains:

"For Masons who wish to conceal their membership from non-Masons, but still advertise it to their Lodge brothers, there is a special pin (or tie tack) they can wear. It looks like an upside down golf club with two balls near the top....Many people assume the person is a golfing enthusiast, but it is actually a visual Masonic pun.

"This is called the 'Two Ball Cane,' and is a pun on the secret password of a Master Mason, 'Tubalcain (sic).'...It is also an all-too-obvious pun on the 'god' of Masonry, the male reproductive organ. Nice, eh?...especially when many men wear these wretched things to church on Sunday!"

Dee named his system of ceremonial magic after the apocryphal Book of Enoch. Enoch is also the central figure around which a great deal of Masonic legend is centered, as he is said to have constructed the two pillars of Masonic lore to preserve the antediluvian high knowledge of Atlantis inside them.

…Tubal, one of his children by the other wife, exceeded all men in strength, and was very expert and famous in martial performances. He procured what tended to the pleasures of the body by that method; and first of all invented the art of making brass.

This image depicts John Dee, Queen Elizabeth's personal astrologer, passing a lantern symbolizing the esoteric tradition to Francis Bacon.

When he was 21, Bacon met the alchemist and original 007, John Dee. On August 11, 1582 there was an entry in Dee's journal that they met at Mortlake – the young Bacon came to the famous alchemist to learn about the ancient Hebrew esoteric numerical code known as the Gematria, one of the oldest cipher systems known, dating from 700 BCE. Esoteric themes are threaded through much of Bacon’s writing and we can only guess at Dee’s influence.

The original English "Top Secret"...

When Frances Drake sailed up the coast of California he had navigational instruments that were top secret. The French, the Spanish, must be kept away from this stuff and these were navigational instruments created by John Dee that allowed him to locate himself anywhere on the globe. In addition to his studies of the occult, and numerous trips abroad (which many think as a spy), Dee was employed teaching navigation to Naval Captains for 30 years.

The Quest to Rebuild the Temple

- Two weeks after the 1967 Six-Day War which saw Jerusalem and the Temple Mount brought under Israeli control, there occurred the greatest freemasonic meeting in history in London, celebrating 250 years since the founding of UGLE (United Grand Lodge of England), at which the Duke of Kent was installed as the new Grand Master.

- Shortly after, the QC Lodge dispatched a member, the Jewish physicist Dr. Asher Kaufman, to begin studies on the exact location of where the Temple originally stood.

- The Temple Mount Faithful was also established at this time by Stanley Goldfoot, which is presently led by Gershon Solomon.

- In December of 1995, a month after Rabin was assassinated, the Jerusalem Lodge (91) was established adjacent to the Temple Mount in the underground Grotto of King Solomon. This lodge was founded by Giuliano Di Bernardo, and at the opening ceremony he declared, "The rebuilding of the Temple is at the center of our studies."


For those that don't know, ex-Confederate General, and some say Klu Klux Klan member, Albert Pike is one of if the most famous freemasons of the Scottish rite known to man and authored this book "

Morals and Dogma

of Freemasonry" which is pretty much the Masonic Bible; even though most Mason's don't even look through this text. For if they did they'd not only find that 95% of them are being deliberately LIED to. Following teachings about Lucifer the "Light-Bearer" are Mason teachings in this book:

"Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable, blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish souls? Doubt it not!" [

Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, p. 321, 19th Degree of Grand Pontiff

Most new candidates to Masonry also have no idea that what they are told initially are lies. At the heart of Masonry is a secret Luciferian doctrine which a Mason only comes to understand as he reaches the higher levels.. New candidates are falsely taught that the beginnings of Freemasonry are lost in the "mists of time". Beware: That is just a clever lie candidates easily accept, to be deceived.

High level Masons believe that Lucifer never fell to earth and that Lucifer is really God, and refer to Yahweh by the name of ‘Adonay.’ Masons say that it is Yahweh that is the god of evil, because he forces men to be subservient to his repressive dictates. Masonic books given to handpicked members of the 32nd and 33rd Degrees, say that Jesus was an impostor, and that Lucifer is the true God.

Witnessing to Freemasons

An unsaved Mason has no reason to follow Jesus; and he would need to be approached like any lost soul: with much prayer and with the understanding of two factors:

1) the man is ignorant of the Bible, even though it is part of the "furniture" of the Lodge and is to be his "rule and guide."

2) that however happy he may appear to be in his Masonry; he nevertheless is in need because he is lost and lacks Jesus. He has substituted Masonry for a real relationship with the living God of the universe through His Son!

Most Christian Masons, on the other hand, have no idea of what they are involved in, but have joined because of family obligations, or business connections. Unfortunately, these men may also lack an appreciation of the holiness and majesty of the Lord Whom they profess to follow; and may not know a great deal about either the Lodge they serve or the Bible.(Hos.4:6)

Shriners - anti republic:

Shriners are officially known as the Ancient Arabic Order of Nobles of the Mystic Shrine.  They glorify the pagan Islamic religion.

We must also remember that the Shriners are no more and no less than very high degree Masonry--no matter how many funny cars they ride around in with their funny hats on; and no matter how they try to fit into the community with benevolent fund raisers, etc..

Shriners are the Islamic branch of Masonry linking this occultist, Satanist, God hating "institution" and conspiracy to another enslavement movement known as Islam. While generally known as a social organization, the Shriners branch in the U.S.A. act as a fund raising organization for worthy causes.  That is a ploy, however.  The Shriner goal is no less than political control of all governments with the ultimate idea of the formation of a one world currency and then a one world government endorsed by docile domesticated religious leaders. The memberships of their organizations supply the financial backing, either directly or indirectly, for political action. Their focus is primarily upon the election of members to political office at all levels of government. Shriners promote democracy in place of republicanism, the original legal form of government developed by the founding fathers of the U.S.A. The concept is for the government – controlled by freemasons – to dominate the population rather than having a government restricted as to its actions as intended by the American Constitution. Many powerful corporations are dominated by Freemasons and contribute to political causes that elect such men as William Clinton, an acknowledged supporter of sodomy and abortion, and John Kerry.

Bible Probe Comment:

Masonry is all about lying to new candidates about what Masonry (including Freemasonry) is all about.  Masons are even lied to about what their symbols and aprons are all about.  Masons are spoon fed via degrees what they should know.  All of it is a lie until they reach the higher degrees where Lucifer comes forth as their "shining star in the east", and where it even becomes clear that the "G" (is not a G, but is the Hebrew Yod) on the Masonic apron is a sexual/reproductive symbol and the square is the symbol for the lingam (God force in witchcraft), and "G" does not stand for God or geometry. Some of these folks still think the star in the east is referring to Bethlehem, when to the Wise men coming from the east this should be the "shining star in the west".  It's all about the occult and Satan Worship, but a Mason will point to the Bible in the Masonic Temple and say; see it's one of the 3 great lights of Masonry.  Ask this Mason, when the last time something was read from it about the Son of God.  Or, when the last time he heard the name of Jesus even mentioned in a Masonic Lodge.  

The English letter "G" in Masonic symbolism is inseparable from, and identical with, the Hebrew letter "YOD."  This "YOD" is the symbol on the Scottish Rite ring.  "YOD" represents deity in general (its cosmic meaning), and the worshipped phallus in particular (its earthly meaning).  The honored Mason Albert Pike wrote that the "G" displayed in English speaking lodges is merely a corruption of the "YOD" (with which it should be replaced), and that "the mysterious YOD of the Kabbalah" is the image of the Kabalistic Phallus.  The "Kabbalah" he refers to here is a medieval book of the occult, a highly mystical and magical interpretation of the Bible, and important sourcebook for sorcerers and magicians.  Reference, book: "The Deadly Deception", page 144, by ex 33 Degree Mason Jim Shaw

Don't Masons know the Holy of Holies temple rights faced West?  Yet Mason temple rights face east -- in Satan's direction - to the Sun god Ba'al?  Haven't Mason's heard that the north side of a Masonic Lodge is the side of ignorance and darkness?  Ding! Ding! In the Bible, the north side is where God presides.  And like some sick satanic joke a Masonic Lodge is facing exactly backwards from the real Temple of Solomon - sort of a Black Mass of direction.  Masons even allow their own children and wives to be sucked into Satan's Clubhouse via the Order of DeMolay, Job's Daughters, the Rainbows, the Order of the Eastern Star, Daughters of the Nile, The Tall Cedars of Lebanon, The Mystic Order of Veiled Prophets of The Enchanted Realm, The Knights of The Red Cross of Constantine, and The Blue Lodge -  where they feed them the contrary doctrine that salvation is by works; vs. the grace of the Lord Jesus. Satan has managed to deceive so many people into thinking they are getting real brotherly friendship under his guidance than they would get in a Christian Church.  Also, Masonry's teachings, rituals, customs and practices, and its secrecy have had an inspirational effect on other similar groups such as the Moose, Eagles, Elks, and the National Grange.

In an almost a dead "giveaway" to its satanic nature, a common Masonic ritual even promises; "when in that last day your poor trembling soul stands naked and alone before the great white throne".  Any Christian should know only the unsaved and "damned" will stand in front of the great white throne of God. 

When you stand in front of the great white throne in your mocking lambskin aprons with satanic sexual "G"enerative symbol printed on them and plead your "good works" instead of the blood of The Lamb, surely you'll generate a "hit" . So much time wasted that could have been better spent with family and Jesus. Read Genesis to see why God did not want Adam and Eve to wear aprons of fig leafs to cover their shame, and why God gave them coats from animal skins.

I Pray you plead the Blood of the Lamb and remove this scourge from yourself and your family, before it's too late.

MASONRY UNMASKED by John Salza

This book is an especially important read for any Catholics who may be contemplating making the mistake of becoming a Freemason. They should be looking into joining a fraternal organization such as the Knights of Columbus instead.

It was finally the problem of Masonry's teaching on the resurrection that convinced John Salza to leave Masonry forever.

Page 93:

(A) Freemasonry believes in a bodily resurrection to the celestial lodge above

(B) Freemasonry does not believe in the necessity of faith in Jesus Christ =

Freemasonry is incompatible with Christianity

 

Freemasonry teaches that due-paying Freemasonry alone is one's guarantee for Heaven. Without any intervention needed by Jesus Christ. This is a satanic lie to me and to most Christians.

John Salza reveals all the secrets and highlights the subtle dangers present in the Masonic philosophy that dilute the faith and commitment of any member regardless of what their professed faith.

Masonry teaches that the Grand Architect of the Universe GAOTU is to be worshiped, but that Jesus Christ is just a wise teacher, equal to Mohammed or Buddha. People of all faiths can worship at the Masonic Altar, so long as no one ever discusses their religious differences or witnesses to the truths of their faith. The implications for Christians here are obvious to any Biblically literate person. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and man, and "no one comes to the father except through" Him.  These are His words, and they are beyond debate... for Jesus Christ is God.  Since Masonry contradicts this most BASIC and ESSENTIAL element of the Gospel, Masonry is not compatible with Christianity.

Generational Curse in the Bible that
is linked with Freemasonry:

There is an awful lot of things most Christians need to learn about demons. They can be present in a home due to things like graven images, which can be Hindu items, Buddhist items, Muslim, voodoo, American Indian, Wiccan, occult, witchcraft, freemasonry, pornography, etc. Masonry items are occult. Freemasonry can also be a generational curse.

If the object is linked to Freemasonry, Eastern Star, Job's Daughters, Rainbow Girls of DeMolay, or the Shriners, Odd Fellows, Elks, Amaranth, and Daughters of the Nile - get it out of your house, and pray for the release of these members and their descendants. Members of Freemasonry, Eastern Star and the Shriners are often required to take oaths that actually curse themselves and their families.  These members also go through rituals which include pledging allegiance to various deities, which God abhors.  Demons can easily attach themselves to items, such as books, rings, aprons, regalia and memorabilia, that represent these societies.

What to do with Freemason rings, etc.  This may apply:

Deuteronomy 7:25
25 The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therein: for it is an abomination to the LORD thy God.

Deuteronomy 9:21
21 And I took your sin, the calf which ye had made, and burnt it with fire, and stamped it, and ground it very small, even until it was as small as dust: and I cast the dust thereof into the brook that descended out of the mount.

You might be saying to yourself, I saw the "Elks" in your list above. Belonging to these organizations can be compared to the captivity of the Jews in Babylon.  They all take secret oaths. And, any organization which speaks of any sort of divine benefit, including eternal life, due to our own good deeds is in error. It takes nothing more than reading Ephesians 2:8-9 to see that membership in any organization denying or devaluing the meritorious work of Christ involves confessing a different faith. Not a lodge exists that completely rejects good works as essential for salvation.

Items, including ceramic statues that have been used in pagan ceremonies can also carry evil with them.  Some clothes can also.  These can invite demons into your home. You invite them in along with these items. If you have any - get rid of them. They can also inhabit a property due to some bad things that happened in the past on the land or in the house. There are generational curses that the Bible warns us about. These can be passed down to you from your relatives. These can occur if someone in your family was a Freemason, cheated anyone out of their land, or bowed down to a graven image like a statue of Buddha, etc. Read more at the below link, including how to use "anointing oil" to help protect your home.

Christians need to know that it is only through the holy name of Jesus that we have the authority to expel demonic forces. Unless we have a personal relationship with Jesus (saved), we cannot use His name for this. Living with spiritual darkness here on earth is one thing. But living in utter and complete darkness with no hope of life for all eternity because you rejected the Son of God is a much bigger thing. Only the blood of Jesus (Yeshua) can save you from such an awful fate. Secure your own salvation now, by turning from your sin, believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus, and receive Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior.

Behind the Lodge Door: Church, State and Freemasonry In America

Behind the Lodge Door
by Paul A. Fisher
see at Amazon.com

Mr. Fisher shares startling, sensational, and well founded examples of many of America's leaders who were both freemasons and prominent members of the insidious Ku Klux Klan. When the author delves into the influence of secret societies on American history, the work is absolutely great and powerfully important.  Paul Fisher's important book is thoroughly researched, meticulously documented, and well written. Certainly, it is the clarion call of a Catholic against the dangers of freemasonry in American society. But that is no reason to condemn the book.

Freemasonry's Influence in Europe

Incompatible With Christian Religion, Says Historian

MADRID, Spain, JAN. 30, 2005 (Zenit.org).- To understand what is happening in Europe, the phenomenon of Masonry must be taken into account, says Protestant historian César Vidal.

The director of the program "La Linterna" of the Spanish bishops' COPE radio network, Vidal has just written a book, "Los Masones: La Historia de la Sociedad Secreta Más Poderosa" (The Freemasons: History of the Most Powerful Secret Society), published by Planeta.

Among other things, the book addresses the Masonic influence in the most important events of recent Spanish history, especially since the election last March of the Spanish Socialist Labor Party (PSOE).

Vidal says that "the secularist current promoted by the government headed by José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero shares more than enough Masonry's rank anti-clericalism."

The author explains that the Freemasons have an enormous role in the European Union and, by way of example, says that "the project of the European Constitution has been driven by a Freemason," Valéry Giscard D'Estaing, "who has excluded mention of the continent's Christian roots and, in addition, has insisted on the inclusion of an article that subjects the churches of the different nations but frees 'philosophical organizations' from that obligation."

Vidal has doctorates in history, philosophy and theology, and a law degree.

Q: Which outstanding personalities in Spain were and are Masons, a fact known by very few people?

Vidal: The list would be too long and some, only some, are mentioned in my book "The Freemasons." Suffice it to say by way of illustration that the Grand Master of the great Spanish east is Dr. Josep Corominas, PSOE deputy; that the special five-member commission that established Felipe González as the PSOE's secretary-general has three Masons among its members -- one of them the future president of the Senate -- and that Rodríguez Zapatero's grandfather was a Freemason.

Q: Can it be said that Masonry is behind the secularist current that is being witnessed in Spain?

Vidal: What can be said without danger of exaggeration is that the secularist current promoted by the government that José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero heads shares, more than enough, Masonry's rank anti-clericalism.

Q: What role does it have and might have in the European Union?

Vidal: Enormous if one takes into account that the project of the European Constitution has been promoted by a Freemason who has excluded mention of the continent's Christian roots and, in addition, has insisted on the inclusion of an article that subjects the Churches to the different nations but frees "philosophical organizations" from that obligation.

Q: In what way, over the last century, has Masonry been present in the history of Spain?

Vidal: Repeatedly and lamentably. A very important role must be attributed to Masonry in the pro-independence movements of Cuba and the Philippines, in anti-clerical and secularist campaigns, in the erosion of the parliamentary monarchy of the Restoration, going so far as to take recourse to terrorism, in the proclamation of the Second Republic and, very especially, in the redaction of a Republican Constitution which created a social break that led to the Civil War.

Q: Can you tell us about concrete events that prove its struggle against Catholicism?

Vidal: That is the history of Masonry since the 18th century, but suffice it to recall, by way of example, that Rodolfo Llopis, Freemason and Socialist, became secretary-general of the PSOE [and] promoted the anti-Christian educational legislation of the Second Republic; or scandals such as that of the Banca Ambrosiana which were linked directly to the Masons' action.

Q: What were Masonry's origins?

Vidal: The real origins of Masonry date back to the end of the 17th and early 18th centuries, when groups of individuals attracted by occult gnosis founded meeting places in which, supposedly, it was transmitted.

Of course, they talk about origins that refer to pagan religions, to gnosis, to a nonexistent personality of Solomon's time and also to the druids.

Q: What are its most characteristic features, objectives and present structure? Is it a religion?

Vidal: Though Freemasons deny it, the truth is that the Masonic cosmo-vision is not one proper to a philanthropic society as they often say, but that of a religion. That circumstance explains, precisely, the repeated condemnations of the Holy See and of the other Christian confessions, which consider membership in Masonry incompatible with Christianity.

Masonry might be described as a secret society, with an initiative structure, a Gnostic cosmo-vision, and an existential manifestation which makes it easy for its members to help one another when it comes to occupying important posts in society.

Q: What percentage of Freemasons are there at present?

Vidal: Without a doubt, very small. In France it is said that they are not more than 0.6% of the population. However, that has not prevented their controlling the Socialist International or their spreading in the Right itself, through personalities such as Giscard D'Estaing.

Q: In what vital points of our society -- especially in economic, political and intellectual circles and the media -- are Freemasons present?

Vidal: There are sectors that have always been of interest to Freemasons. Needless to say, politics where they control the Socialist International and have entered powerfully in parties of the Right. No less is their weight in the world of communications and, very especially, their interest in education, justice and the armed forces.

In France, for example, the "affaire des fiches" revealed to what extent Masonic officers were promoted and Catholics, on the contrary, blocked from promotion.

 

 


Masonry's and Satan's "Game Plan", written in 1871:

Albert Pike’s 1871 letter to Mazzini proposed three world wars needed to accomplish their purposes:

“The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the "agentur" (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions.”

“The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm.”

“The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction…will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”

As do most occultists, Albert Pike had a "spirit guide," who dispensed "Divine Wisdom" and enlightened him regarding how to achieve the New World Order. A spirit guide is a being who meets someone who has given themselves over to the practice of the occult; however, people who are practitioners of the New Age Religion do not view this as a bad thing. In fact, they would strongly argue that they are filled with happiness and joy by interacting with their spirit guides.

In 1917, at Fatima, the Blessed Virgin Mary predicted the end of the First World War, and the coming of the Second. After this Second World War, Communism was made strong enough to begin taking over weaker governments. In 1945, at the Potsdam Conference between Truman, Churchill, and Stalin, a large portion of Europe was simply handed over to Russia, and on the other side of the world, the aftermath of the war with Japan helped to sweep the tide of Communism into China.

Truth Revealed in the highest 33rd degree of Masonry:

"The highest degree of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, the Meritorious Degree, the Degree of the Illuminati, whose motto is "Ordo Ab Chao" or "Out of Chaos Comes Order".  This literally means if Masons break down the existing structure and cause the population to cry out for order, they will emerge as the rulers and will have the world that they seek.

Is it possible a global government controlled by illuminati and Masons can happen -- begun by bankrupting the United States and the U. S. Catholic Church, and using homosexuals as dupes?

 

Prayer to God, to rid yourself & your family, of the Curse of Freemasonry.


First.  Rid your home of anything to do with the occult, witchcraft and Masonry.  Burn thee items. Next, say these prayers to Jesus Christ, your only mediator with the Father.

[the stomach, gallbladder, womb, liver and any other organ of my body affected by Masonry], and I ask for release of compassion and understanding for me and my family.

Thirty-Second Degree

I renounce the oaths taken and the curses and iniquities involved in the Thirty-Second Degree of Masonry, the Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret. . . I renounce Masonry's false trinitarian deity AUM, and its parts: Brahma the creator, Vishnu the preserver and Shiva the destroyer.  I renounce the deity of AHURA-MAZDA, the claimed spirit or source of all light, and the worship with fire, which is an abomination to God, and also the drinking from a human skull in many rites.

Shriners


I renounce the oaths taken and the curses, iniquities and penalties involved in the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine.  I renounce the piercing of the eyeballs with a three-edged blade, the flaying of the feet, the madness and the worship of the false god Allah as the god of our fathers.  I renounce the hoodwink, the mock hanging, the mock beheading, the mock drinking of the blood of the victim, the mock dog urinating on the initiate, and the offering of urine as a commemoration.


Above prayers from the book, "Protecting Your Home from Spiritual Darkness", by Chuck D. Pierce and Rebecca Wagner Sytsema.  This book also contains prayers of cleansing for other Masonic Degrees.

BEWARE: of "The Secret Society" $139 book of "powers".

BibleProbe.com has been unable to find a Masonic connection to this. However, we are not ruling out that this may be a Masonic ploy to gain new members. The contents of this 1200 page book is very close to typical useless Masonic writings. And the ultimate goal of this book is to brain-wash Christians and others into making them atheists (for their own good). Once that is done, it is an easy 'step' into secret societies like Masonry - with the same ultimate goal.

THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS of this "The Secret Society"


It begins one day, when you receive in the mail a little booklet with about 5 expertly written personal stories that tell you - just like these people in the stories were picked because of their "special qualities", you have also been hand-selected to belong to "The Secret Society". The lure continues that they are in possession of the secrets of the ancients and the secrets of every powerful wealthy person. And additionally, by learning these secrets you will become wealthy beyond your dreams (as the 5 story tellers are of course). And your love life will rocket to the moon; and you will be able to easily break any and all bad habits/addictions. One story is about a gambler in Las Vegas who simply couldn't lose - because he says of the "secrets" contained in the Secret Society's book. There are promises that you will be asked to attend their ultra Secret meetings, because by sending $139 for their book, and having been hand selected as a 1 in a million individual - you are now one of the gang.

The hook says: Send the $139 by Friday and you will receive this 1200 page book and entry into "The Secret Society". But if you don't send your check by Friday, the offer to join their "The Secret Society" will pass you by and you will never be given that chance again.

About 2 weeks later a 1200 page atheist "book of poison" actually does arrive. It's a black cheaply made book entitled "The Nouveau Tech Package of Inside Secrets - Nouveau Tech Secret Society - The Nouveau Tech Discovery"

Within its pages you will find the "Secret of the Ancients" which I suspect is at the heart of all Secret Societies that ever existed - including Freemasonry. The so-called Secret of Secrets in this book is that you will never be wealthy, happy, have a good love life until you learn that it is Religion (Mysticism), and your belief in a deity such as a God that is keeping you back. It is this mysticism mind-set (belief in God) the book tells you over and over again, which is responsible for keeping you back/down. It comes right out and tells you that with no inhibitions such as in the belief in a God, or in sins - you will become a new advanced, enlightened and powerful individual. Can't you see the glee in Satan's eyes? He's thinking - and they even paid $139 to lose their souls, which Jesus paid an enormously higher price to gain.
