" For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds." Saint Paul (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)
Who is The Great Architect of the Universe?
Its term the great architect of the universe, is not a mere Masonic name for the living and True God of Christianity, but it denotes an entity that can not be identified with Jehovah. It is not a synonym for Jehovah, as it is generally believed to be. It denotes another entity just as Baal, Molech, Brahma, etc., denote entitles distinct from Jehovah. Many Masonic writers ridicule the Christian doctrine that the Bible is a supernatural revelation from God. They say it is a book written for the vulgar, by the ancient priests and that they concealed under its exoteric language, the secret doctrine, which is the true Freemasonry. [This is pure Judaism, and is the foundation of the Talmud and the teachings of the Jewish Kabbalah].
Revelation 13:12 states: "And I . . . saw a beast rise up out of the sea . . . and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority."
An unseen power is using human beings to give rise to world government. Revelation 12:9 identifies the dragon as; "that old serpent, called the devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world . . . "
But there was already on the world scene, a secret religious-political entity in control of the various governments of the earth; and is revealed in Revelation 13:27:
"And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the Dragon gave him [the beast] his power, and his seat, and great authority . . . And they worshiped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him [the beast] to make war with the saints and to over come them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations, and all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world."
The Scriptures attest that Jesus was the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. He came to save and redeem Israel. For Christ, Himself stated:
" . . .I am not sent BUT unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel." And He sent His disciples only to Israel, not to the rest of the world as the Judeo-Christian ministers of today say: "But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
Now, let's look into history and see what system is rising on the world scene that is empowered by Satan the devil, who is also called Lucifer.
An organization that is little discussed if ever, that is so secretive that even wives do not know the blood curdling oaths that must be taken to enter, is called Freemasonry. What do you honestly know about this secret society? Do you know any of its beliefs by documentation from their faithful? Is it a religious organization? a business organization? A social fraternity?
Out of Germany was hatched a Diabolical Plot that has deceived millions of people and which, even now, threatens to destroy Western Civilization.
These "thinkers, Elders of Zion" could clearly see that corruption and depravity had decimated the strength of Christ's church, through the Catholic Church and other so-called Christian cults, which had promulgated many of the ideas now proven to be totally fallacious. They saw that the church, commonly believed to be the body of Christ, held its adherents in subjection by means of fear and superstitious ritual.
They falsely assumed that the myths and superstitions of the Dark Ages were based on the Bible. Whey they proved that these superstitions were false, they assumed, without any real proof, that they had proven the Bible to be false. The teachings of Judaism, and through it the Catholic Church were based on the Satan-inspired Babylonian Mystery Religion, not on the Bible.
Under an unending barrage of such "enlightened" scholarship of the so-called higher critics, the "intelligentsia" of Europe were prepared by the second half of the eighteenth century for the advent of Illuminism, the Secret society called the Illuminati.
What does that name mean to you? Most people answer that question with a blank stare, a total lack of comprehension. Regardless of how various people may respond to that question, there is one fact of which we may be assured: The Order of the Illuminati was founded on May 1st, 1776, by Adam Weishaupt, a Jewish Professor of Canon Law at the University of Ingolstadt, Bavaria. Weishaupt (born a Jew and 'converted' to Roman Catholicism) was a former Jesuit priest [the Jewish military arm of the Catholic Church] who broke with that Order to form his own organization. There is evidence now extant that proves that the Catholic forces have joined the Illuminists (at the highest level) in an unholy alliance to achieve, [with Judaism], the mutual goal of total world conquest.
The Illuminists: About the middle of the eighteenth century, the irreligious and disruptive tendency which has always characterized Freemasonry received a new impetus from the secret societies of the German Illuminists and the French Martinists which were merged in Freemasonry.
In France, especially, where the ground was prepared by the Gallican and Jansenistic movements of the preceding generation, Freemasonry spread very rapidly, and gained immense influence. It served to strengthen the spirit of impiety and unbelief already prevailing among the upper classes, and to enhance the demoralization which affected all classes.
Above all, Masonic principles and teaching introduced the spirit of revolt against both ecclesiastical and civil authority. The Masonic lodges became the meeting-places in which every type of impiety, immorality, and revolt found a safe refuge, and where all the anti-religious and anti-social elements of French society met on common ground. This spirit of revolt soon bore fruit all over Europe and America in the anti-religious persecutions, the expulsion of the Society of Jesus from various countries, the complicated intrigues which culminated in the suppression of the same Society (forced on Christianity through Masonic influence), and later on in the French Revolution (1789).
The principles and ideals which led to the formation of these societies, whose tendencies were profoundly irreligious and anarchical, had come into Northern Germany from England and France early in the century, and had spread south into the Christian portions of the country. In 1776 Adam Weishaupt, a professor of the University of Ingolstadt, became the leading spirit of the movement.
Weishaupt's plan (which is still the method followed in the Masonic lodges) was to enlist disciples into a secret organization, and to fashion them little by little to his ideals by means of a series of successive initiations into the inner circles and secrets of the organization.
In the early stages of the training, that is in the outer circles of the system, some kind of religion and even Christianity was ostentatiously professed; but as the member became more and more inoculated with the new principles and ideas he was gradually admitted into the real inner secrets, which included the denial of God and the abolition of all civil authority. The members had to bind themselves by dreadful oaths to devote themselves to the purposes of the organization, and to preserve inviolable secrecy.
The Order exacted from its members a total consecration of themselves, of all their faculties and powers, to the work of the society. They had to place at its service their liberty, their honor, their property, and to forswear their allegiance to their country and their Church. They had, at the same time, to bind themselves to inviolable secrecy, and to complete and blind obedience to the superiors of the society whom they did not know, and to whom was committed the right of life and death over all the members, as well as the right to oblige the latter to the most unjust and immoral acts.
Sources of Information Concerning Freemasonry
The author then proceeds to describe in detail the main sources from which the student may obtain a pretty full and accurate knowledge of the character, aims and general methods of Freemasonry, which is the parent and the model of all the modern secret societies. That these sources are abundant and authentic need not cause surprise. It is almost impossible that it should be otherwise seeing that Freemasonry alone, not to speak of the numberless allied associations, counts its adherents in the millions, and that its activities have already gone on for nearly two centuries.
These sources are in the first place the Masonic constitutions, and the authentic collections of statutes, also the Masonic manuals, the books of ceremonial, the catechisms, the official descriptions of the oaths and obligations belonging to the different rites; the yearly calendars, etc. Next come the published Transactions of Masonic gatherings, as well as the numberless Masonic reviews and official organs from all parts of the world, in which the principles and aims of the Order are oftentimes openly avowed. Then we have the authoritative works of Masonic writers dealing with the different aspects of Freemasonry, describing the nature of the Masonic cult and analyzing the spirit and ideals of the Masonic Order.
Again, much may be learned from the attitude adopted by the Masonic body in different countries on such questions as Marriage, Education, the relations of Church and State, etc., as well as from the policy and activities of leading personages closely connected with the Order.
Now and then, too, valuable information has been communicated by important members who were at one time zealous supporters of Freemasonry, and had been admitted to some of its inner secrets; but afterwards repented and left its ranks. Finally, in some instances secret Masonic documents of the highest importance have fallen accidentally into the hand of Christians or have been seized and published by the civil authorities.
It is important that we clarify the real meaning of the name of Weishaupt's Secret Society, the Illuminati. This is very significant. The name implies that those individuals who are members of the Illuminati are the only members of the human race who are truly enlightened.
Weishaupt and his followers considered themselves to be the cream of the intelligentsia, the only people with the mental capacity, the knowledge, the insight and understanding necessary to govern the world and bring it peace. Their avowed purpose and goal was the establishment of a "Novus Ordo Seclorum," a New World Order, or One World Government.
The name Illuminati derives from the word Lucifer, which means "Bearer of Light" or a being of extraordinary brilliance. "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of Light."
Illuminism is clearly Satanism in one of its latter-day manifestations. Their goals are virtually identical. In fact, Satan was the first Illuminist.
Public attention was first drawn to the existence of the Illuminati and their diabolical plan for world conquest as the result of a bizarre accident in 1785. History records that a courier for the Illuminati, named Lanze, was racing on horseback from Frankfurt to Paris carrying documents relating to Illuminati activities in general, and specific instructions for the planned French Revolution in particular.
The documents originated with the Jewish members of the Illuminati in Germany and were addressed to the Grand Master of the Grand Orient Masons in Paris. As the courier galloped through Ratisbon (Regensberg), he was struck by lightning and killed. All of the papers he was carrying fell into the hands of the local police, who turned them over to the Bavarian Government. The authorities ordered the police to raid the headquarters of the Illuminati and this resulted in additional documents being captured. Thes e documents revealed that the conspirators had world-wide aims.
All of the carefully documented evidence was brought to the attention of the government of Britain, Germany, Austria, France, Poland and Russia. For one reason or another, possibly inside Illuminati influence [or perhaps for the same reason that men today turn a deaf ear to those who would expose the goals of the conspirators, saying with contempt: "I cannot see any such conspiracy", they chose to turn a deaf ear to the warnings contained in these dreadful documents.] Four years later the French Revolution exploded in all its fury.
Sir Walter Scott, in the second volume of his "The Life of Napoleon," points out that the events leading up to the French Revolution were created by the Jewish Money Barons, the Illuminati, whose agents then led the mob in creating the famous Reign of Terror.
The First Break
The first real "break" as far as inside information on the Illuminati is concerned, came when these "great intellectuals" invited Professor John Robinson to join their ranks. Robinson didn't fall for the lie that the goals of the Illuminati were pure and honorable. He kept his thoughts to himself however, and played along with the conspirators. Subsequently he was entrusted with top secret Illuminati documents and was able to scrutinize the inner workings of the secret society at close range.
As a result, Professor Robison wrote a startling book entitled "Proofs of A Conspiracy" which was published in 1797. All of what is currently known about the early Illuminati comes from Robison's book and another written by the Abbe Barruel in 1798 entitled "Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism."
Both books, although the authors were unknown to each other, give us a clear-cut picture of the organization. The books quote extensively from The Original Writings of the Order and Sect of the Illuminati, an official report of the Bavarian government issued in 1786 following a lengthy investigation.
The following facts emerge
Adam Weishaupt was born on the 6th of February, 1748, of Jewish parents. His early training by both Jewish teachers and the Jesuits inspired him with an intense dislike, even hatred for Christianity and the Jesuit order.
When he broke with the Jesuits he immersed himself in the subversive and anti-Christian teachings of the French philosophers and other writers who appealed to his innate sense of superiority. And for five years he was devoted to meditation, during which time he devised a plan to overthrow civilization and establish what he termed a "Novus Ordo Seclorum" A New World Order which he initiated with Rothschild financial backing.
The initiates who made up the outer rings were told that the great purpose of the Illuminati was, "to make of the human race, without any distinction of nation, condition, or profession, one good and happy family."
All initiates were required to take an oath to bind themselves, "to perpetual silence and unshakable loyalty and submission to the Order, in the persons of my superiors; here making a faithful and complete surrender of my private judgement, my own will, and every narrow-minded employment of my own power and influence. I pledge myself to account the good of the Order as my own and am ready to serve it with my fortune, my honor, and my blood . . . The friends and enemies of the Order shall be my friends and enemies; and with respect to both I will conduct myself as directed by the Order . . . (and) devote myself to its increase and promotion, and therein to employ all my ability . . . without secret reservation."
By way of warning as to the consequences of betraying the Order, the initiate took part in a ceremony during which he was warned that, "If you are only a traitor and perjurer, learn that all our brothers are called upon to arm themselves against you. Do not hope to escape or to find a place of safety. Wherever you are, shame, remorse, and the rage of our brothers will pursue you and torment you to the innermost recesses of your entrails."
By the time the member had reached the "inner circle" his oath of absolute secrecy and unquestioning obedience had become deadly serious. Only at this stage was he allowed to finally see the ultimate aims of the Order:
Abolition of all ordered government;
Abolition of private property;
Abolition of inheritance;
Abolition of patriotism;
Abolition of all religion;
Abolition of the family
(i.e., marriage, morality and the proper education of children)
The creation of a World Government.
The aim of Robison's work was to trace the development of the Secret Societies up to the French Revolution. He denounces Voltaire, d'Alembert and Frederick II of Prussia in his book, "Proofs of a Conspiracy", as the chiefs of a great anti-Christian conspiracy (identified with Freemasonry) which brought about the suppression of the Society of Jesus, the production of the "Encyclopédie," and the spread of the anti-Christian movement in France.
Weishaupt's Illuminism was merged into Freemasonry following its suppression in Bavaria. From the union of the two sprang the Masonic sect of the Jacobins, whose activities reached their climax in the anti-Christian excesses of the French Revolution. Efforts have also been made, to discredit Barruel's work. Modern research, however, and events in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries have served to establish his main conclusions.
Documents of the Illuminati
The following passages, quoted by Barruel and Robinson from "The Original Writings of the Illuminati," convey some idea of the character of the sect, its aims and ideals, since impressed upon Freemasonry:
"To reinstate man in his primitive right of equality and liberty we must begin by destroying ALL RELIGION (Christianity most of all) and civil society, and finish by the destruction of all property (property rights) . . . A time shall come when man shall acknowledge no other law but the great book of nature. This revolution shall be the work of secret societies. It is necessary to establish a universal régime and empire over the whole world . . .
Under the new empire all other governments must be able to pursue their usual progress, and to exercise every power except that of hindering the Order from attaining its end. Despotism has robbed men of their liberty. How can the weak obtain protection? . . . Nothing can bring this about but hidden societies . . . Princes and nations shall vanish from the earth. The human race will then become one family . . . and reason will be the code of law to all mankind. Seek out those who are distinguished for their power, riches or learning. Spare no pains, spare nothing in the acquisition of such Adepts. If heaven refuses its aid, conjure hell . . .
These (men of wealth and rank) are a good type of people. They augment our number and fill our coffers . . . Make these gentry swallow the bait; but beware of communicating to them our secrets. For that species of adept must always be persuaded that the degree they are in is the highest. We must acquire the direction of education and of Church government, the professorial chairs and the pulpit . . . We must profess the warmest concern for humanity, and make the people indifferent to all other relations (such as those of family and country) . . .
We must endeavor by every means to gain over the reviewers and journalists; as well as the booksellers, who in time will see that it is in their interest to side with us . . . If a writer publishes anything that attracts notice, but does not accord with our plans, we must endeavor to win him over or decry him. Only those who are certainly proper subjects shall be picked out from among the inferior classes for the higher mysteries . . . No religionist must on any account be admitted into these . . . Every person shall be made a spy on another and on all round. You can't imagine what respect and curiosity my priest degree has raised . . . A famous Protestant divine who is now of the Order is persuaded that the religion contained in it is the true sense of Christianity. O Man, Man! To what may'st thou not be persuaded!"
Such extracts could be multiplied. The plans and ideas revealed in them are substantially identical with the aims and methods of the inner circles of Freemasonry during the nineteenth century and down to our own day.
Documents of the Carbonari
The following extracts are taken from the correspondence of the Italian "Alta Vendita or Haute Vente," commonly supposed to have been the governing center of European Freemasonry at the time. The documents were seized by the Pontifical Government in 1846. They were communicated by Pope Gregory XVI to Cretineau-Joly (March, 1846), who published them in his work "L'Eglise en face de la Revolution" with the approval of Pius IX:
"Our ultimate end is that of Voltaire and of the French Revolution, the final destruction of Christianity, and even of the Christian idea. The work which we have undertaken is not the work of a day, nor of a month, nor of a year. It may last many years, a century, perhaps; in our ranks the soldiers die; but the fight goes on . . . Crush the enemy whoever he may be; crush the powerful by means of lies and calumny . . . if a prelate comes to Rome from the provinces to exercise some public function, learn immediately his character, his antecedents, above all, his defects. If he is already a declared enemy, an Albani, a Pallotta . . . envelop him in all the snares you can lay under his feet; create for him one of those reputations which will frighten little children and old women . . . paint him cruel and sanguinary; recount regarding him some trait of cruelty which can easily be engraved in the minds of the people . . . As France and England, so Italy will never be wanting in facile pens which know how to employ themselves in these lies so useful to the good cause . . .
Let the clergy march under your banner in the belief always that they are marching under the banner of the Apostolic Keys . . . Lay your nets in the depths of the sacristies, seminaries, and convents . . . The dream of the secret societies will be realized for the most simple of reasons because it is based on the passions of man . . . Let us prepare our arms in the silence of the lodges, erect our batteries; flatter all passions, the most evil as well as the most generous; and everything leads us to believe that our plans will succeed one day even beyond our best calculations . . .
The 'Alta Vendita' desires, that under one pretense or another as many princes and wealthy people as possible should be introduced into the Masonic lodges . . . It will afterwards see what it can do to utilize them in the cause of progress . . . They serve as birdlime for the imbeciles, the ambitious, the bourgeoisie, and the needy. They will serve our ends while intending to labor only for their own. They form a magnificent sign-board, and there are always fools enough to be found, ready to take part in a conspiracy of which some prince or other seems to be a ringleader . . . It is upon the lodges that we count to augment our ranks. They form without knowing it our preparatory novitiate . . .
Let us be especially on our guard against exaggeration of zeal. A good hatred, thoroughly cold, calculated and profound is of more worth than all artificial fires, and all the declamations of the platform. At Paris they cannot comprehend this; but at London I have met men who seized better upon our plan . . . Presently we shall have a printing press in Malta placed at our disposal. We shall then be able under the British flag, with impunity and certainty, to scatter from one end of Italy to the other books, pamphlets, etc., which the Alta Vendita shall judge proper to put in circulation . . .
It is not in the blood of an isolated man, or even of a traitor, that it is necessary to exercise our power: it is upon the masses. Let us not individualize crime . . . It is necessary to generalize it . . . Let us not then make more martyrs; but let us spread vice broadcast among the multitude . . . let them breathe it through their five senses; let them drink it in, and become saturated with it . . . Make men's hearts corrupt and vicious, and you will no longer have Christians. Draw away the priests from the altars, and from the practice of virtue. Strive to fill their minds and occupy their time with other matters . . . it is the corruption of the masses we have undertaken, the corruption of the people through the clergy, and of the clergy by us, the corruption which ought one day to enable us to lay Christianity in the tomb . . . One of our friends, laughing at our projects, recently said to us: 'In order to destroy Christianity it is necessary to commence by suppressing woman.' The words are true in a sense; but since we cannot suppress woman, let us corrupt her with the Church, corruptio optimi pessima. The best poniard with which to strike the church is corruption."
We could multiply such quotations directing how youths are to be entrapped, women corrupted and utilized for corruption, how the ecclesiastical are to be deceived, how (Jewish) Calvinism is to be utilized, etc.
Aggressive Anti-Christian Character of Freemasonry
The following extract from a speech delivered September 20, 1902, by Senator Delpech, President of the French Grand Orient, conveys an idea of the general spirit and character of that body:
"The triumph of the Galilean (Christ) has lasted many centuries but now he dies in his turn. The mysterious voice announcing (to Julian the Apostate) the death of Pan today proclaims the death of the impostor God, who promised an era of justice and peace to those who believe in him. The illusion has lasted for a long time. The mendacious God is now disappearing in his turn. He passes away to join the dust of ages with the other divinities of India, Egypt, Greece and Rome, who saw so many deceived creatures prostrate before their altars. Brother Masons, we rejoice to state that we are not without our share in this overthrow of the false prophets. The Romish Church, founded on the Galilean (Christ) myth, began to decay rapidly from the very day on which the Masonic Association was established."
The following is an extract from the speech delivered at the Masonic Congress of Geneva, 1902, by the Deputy Grand Master of the Swiss Lodge, Alpina. This lodge is among those recognized by and closely allied with the Grand Lodges of Great Britain and Ireland:
"We have one irreconcilable enemy (Christianity). Its army is black as the darkness of night, and as numerous as the microbes whose swarming multitudes poison the air around us; it is powerful, closely organized, well disciplined, and a model of blind obedience. This army (Christians) fights to do evil. Freemasonry battles to do good."
Items of Masonic Policy and Methods
Extracts, such as the following, culled from Michael's collection entitled "La Dictature de la Franc-Maçonnerie sur La France," illustrate some of the standard methods of Masonic activity:
"Freemasonry ought to be felt everywhere; but nowhere definitely revealed."
"We ought to be most zealous to make our ideas permeate the masses of the people . . . We rejoice in the fact that they are germinating and bearing fruit."
"Sporting clubs, boy Scout companies, convivial organizations, choral societies, all the types of association that attract youth . . . these are a fruitful soil on which to exercise Masonic propaganda with the greatest profit."
"The Congress of the Grand Lodge of France declares by the almost unanimous vote of the lodges that:
It is in favor of a single type of school, with free education . . . It wishes to impose upon all, even those of lesser capacity, the obligation of attending continuation schools . . . It favors the monopoly of education (by the State) and the immovability of the teachers."
"An admirable aspiration towards an ideal of altruism and pacificism is carrying the brethren of most of our lodges to set their hopes on the complete and absolute realization of that organism for the liberation of modern society. 'The League of Nations.'"
"It is a part of the duty of universal Freemasonry to give its whole support to the League of Nations so that the latter should no longer need to be subject to the interested influences of the governments."
Religion of Freemasonry:
Such extracts as the following, taken from authoritative exponents of British Freemasonry, illustrate the type of religion which it propagates:
"To hearten them (the Initiates) to the task, the Initiatory colleges have held up a prototype in the person of some great soul who has already trodden the same path and emerged triumphantly therefrom . . . In Egypt the prototype was Osiris . . . In Greece the prototype was Bacchus . . . In Masonry the prototype is Hiram Abiff . . . In the Christian and chief of all systems . . . the greatest of all exemplars died at the hands of a mob."
Again, the same author writes:
"It is well for a man to be born in a church but terrible for him to die in one; for in religion there must be growth. A young man is to be censured who fails to attend the Church of his nation; the elderly man is equally to be censured if he does attend, he ought to have outgrown what that Church offers and to have attained a higher order of religious life . . . Each human life is as a bulb providentially planted in some pot, in some religion, in some church. If it fulfills the law of its nature . . . it will outgrow that pot."
"The Freemason," an English Masonic review (August 21, 1926), had the following: "Freemasonry is able to stand by and behold the march of all religions as they pass in review . . . All, however, are seen moving along the line of natural evolution towards one and the same ethical and spiritual goal."
The following is taken from the address of congratulation sent by the Grand Lodge of Italy to the Prince of Wales, afterward King Edward VII, on the occasion of his installation as Grand Master of the English Freemasons. Similar addresses were sent by the French Grand Orient and other Continental jurisdictions. The Italian Freemasons were then (about 1874) perhaps the most prominent and aggressive section in Europe: "May it please your Royal Highness to permit the Grand Master of the Grand Orient of Italy to unite . . . Italian Masonry therefore rejoices at this new lustre shed upon our world-wide Institution, and sincerely prays that between the two Masonic communities may be drawn ever more closely those fraternal ties which, despite the want of that official recognition, which we venture to hope will soon be effected, have always bound us to our English brethren . . . "
A short time afterwards (July 19, 1875) the following appeared in the London "Times: "The announcement was made on Saturday at the consecration of a new lodge, named after the Prince of Wales at the Alexandra Palace, that his Royal Highness the Grand Master of the English Freemasons had given official recognition to the Grand Orient of Italy . . . "
Albert Pike, who was perhaps the highest and most widely-recognized authority on Anglo-American Freemasonry, wrote: "When the (Masonic) Journal in London . . . declared that English Freemasonry had no opinions political or religious, and that it did not in the least degree sympathize with the loose opinions and extravagant utterances of part of the Continental Freemasonry, it was very justly and very conclusively checkmated by the Romish organs with the reply 'it is idle for you to protest. You are Freemasons, and you recognize them as Freemasons. You give them countenance, encouragement and support, and you are jointly responsible with them, and cannot shirk that responsibility.'"
Freemasonry and High Finance
Our next quotations shall be from an article which appeared over the signature "Papus" in the April number, 1914, of the French Occultist review "Mysteria." It furnishes a further illustration of the aims and methods of the Masonic conspiracy:
"Side by side with the national politics of each State, there exist certain obscure organizations of international politics. At the present moment the problems before these international councils are the setting-up of Alsace-Loraine into two Swiss Cantons, the liberation of Poland . . . the disappearance of Austria, the constitution of a United States of Europe after the final abolition of military feudalism. The men that take part in these councils are not the professional politicians, or the brilliantly-dressed ambassadors, but certain unpretentious, unknown men, high financiers, who are superior to the vain ephemeral politicians who imagine that they govern the world. A network of well-organized telegraphic agencies with English directors, a strong international center of economic intelligence with German consuls, a group of French bank-directors and of Belgian, Swiss, and Japanese intelligence agents form a living, active instrument for social purposes of an efficiency quite different from a parliament or a court peopled by courtesans. A strike occurring at the nick of time to stop the construction of an ironclad; the sudden rise into importance of a commercial port; a commercial treaty negotiated at the favorable moment, etc., these are the unforeseen manifestations of those social activities whose springs are hidden, and which surprise only the uninitiated . . . These men (the secret societies organized in small groups) . . . carry on their activities in accordance with an ancient system of social organization, coming down from the ancient sanctuaries of Egypt, and reverently preserved in certain centers of Hermeticism."
Here we have the explicit testimony of one who was himself in close touch with the inner circle of esoteric Freemasonry, and may be presumed to possess accurate knowledge of its activities, as to the identity of the powers controlling international finance with the members of the inner Masonic circle. The testimony of "Papus" is confirmed by a whole mass of collateral evidence.
Documents of Disputed Authenticity
Besides the Masonic documents of undisputed authenticity from which we have so far quoted, there is another important class of documents whose genuineness has not been conclusively established. It is clear that these documents cannot be advanced as evidence of anything which is not proved from other sources.
Some, however, have a significance and importance which forbid their being passed over in silence. The most remarkable of these is the one known as the "Protocols of the Sages of Sion," (Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion) which was first published in Russia in 1901, and translated since the European war into most of the languages of the world, including Japanese and Chinese.
These and kindred documents purport to be reports or records of conferences delivered before secret and select bodies of Masonic Jews of the very inner circles of Freemasonry; and to contain the main outlines of the policy and plans of action, elaborated long before by the Masonic Jewish leaders.
The feature which gives these documents their peculiar interest, and which no amount of adverse criticism or argument against their genuineness can dispel, is the startling accuracy with which recent developments of the anti-Christian and Masonic movement are described almost in detail. The documents were certainly published more than a 100 years ago. Yet they clearly foreshadow events and social developments that have transpired over the last century.
The obvious explanation would seem to be that the documents, whatever their origin, are based upon an accurate knowledge of the Masonic Jewish conspiracy; and that the revelations they purport to contain of the aims and methods of the Masonic Jewish leaders are substantially true. Any arguments to the contrary are not convincing.
This is especially so in the case of the "Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion," the most important of the documents in question, the futility of attemped "refutations" published to date, plus determined perseverance (and the expenditure of billions of dollars) by the capitalistic Jewish-controlled Press and great financial interests in their attempts to boycott or suppress the book, have gone far to convince many as to its authenticity.
It is not our intention to discuss these documents at any length, nor do we quote them as independent evidence of Masonic Jewish aims and methods. However we will briefly summarise the background of the book.
Protocols of the Sages of Sion
(Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion)
The "Protocols" purport to be the rough notes of a series of twenty-seven conferences, delivered or intended for delivery in secret conclave before a select body of Jewish Masonic leaders who were present at the First Zionist Congress at Basle in Switzerland in the year 1897, under the presidency of Dr. Theodore Hertzel. The papers are supposed to have been surreptitiously copied after the congress by secret agents of the Czarist Government who found some way of penetrating the confidential archives of a French Masonic Lodge of the Misraïm rite.
Two well-known Russian publicists, Sergius Nilus, a pious member of the Russian Orthodox Church, and G. Butmi, an able nationalist writer and controversialist, independently obtained possession of copies, and both published Russian versions of the document (1901-1902). Several other editions appeared in Russia during the following fifteen years. It was not, however, until the Russian Revolution of 1917 that the book attracted widespread attention. Since then, editions have appeared in almost every civilized country of the world, and a whole literature has grown up around it.
The book purports to contain only extracts hurriedly gathered from a fuller collection belonging to the same general class as the secret documents of the Illuminati, those of the Alta Vendita, and several other extracts that we possess from the authentic writings or the leaders of the inmost circles of Freemasonry. The extracts, if genuine, would be specially valuable as embodying a statement of the present immediate objective of the Masonic Jewish leaders, and an up-to-date description of their plan of action, which in its main outlines is in harmony with what is already known from other authentic sources. But, whether genuine or not, the book is of extraordinary interest and is manifestly the product of a master mind. It presents an analysis of modern social evils such as can be found nowhere else ( Read more).
The Illuminati And Freemasonry
To put an end to the numerous disputes raging among Masonic bodies, various congresses were held. In 1778, a congress was convened at Lyons; it lasted a month, but was without result. In 1785, another was held at Paris, but the time was wasted in idle disputes with Cagliostro. The most important was that which assembled at Wilhelmsbad in 1782, under the presidency of the Duke of Brunswick, who was anxious to end the discord reigning among German Freemasons. It was attended by Masons from Europe, America, and Asia.
On July 16th, 1782, at the Congress of Wilhelmsbad, an alliance between Illuminism and Freemasonry was finally sealed. This pact joined together all the leading secret societies of the day and united "not less than 3 million members all over the world." The actual effect of this merger on the subsequent history of the world has never been appreciated by historians. Most of which have belonged to one or the other of the secret societies and have sworn not to expose its secrets.
"What passed at this terrible Congress will never be known to the outside world, for even those men who had been drawn unwittingly into the movement, and now heard for the first time the real designs of the leaders, were under oath to reveal nothing. One honest Freemason, the Comte de Virieu, when questioned on the 'tragic secrets' he had brought back with him, replied: 'I will not confide them to you. I can only tell you that all this is very much more serious than you think. The conspiracy which has been woven is so well thought out that it will be, so to speak, impossible for the Monarchy and the Church to escape from it.' From that time on, says his biographer, M. Costa de Beauregard, 'the Comte de Virieu could only speak of Freemasonry with horror.'"
Discussions at Wilhelmsbad
The statements contained in Dr. Stark's book, "The Coping Stone," concerning the influence of the Jesuits in the Masonic body, formed one of the chief topics discussed. Some of the chiefs of the Strict Observance produced considerable confusion by being unable to give information concerning the secrets of the high degrees, which they had professed to know; or to render an account of large sums they had received on behalf of the Order.
The main point was to settle whether Masonry was to be considered as a continuation of the Order of the Templars, and whether the secrets of the sect were to be sought for in the modern Templar degrees. After thirty sittings, the answer was in the negative; the chiefs of the Strict Observance were defeated, and the Duke of Brunswick suspended the Order for three years, from which blow it never recovered. The Swedes professed to possess all the secrets; the Duke of Brunswick hastened to Upsala to learn them, but found that the Swedes knew no more than the Germans; whence new dissensions arose between the Masons of the two nations.
The result of the convention of Wilhelmsbad was the retention of the three symbolical degrees, with the addition of a new degree, that of the "Knights of Beneficence," which was based on the principles enunciated in St. Martin's book, "Des Erreurs et de la Vérité, and the Tableau Naturel." The foundation of the new Order was attributed to the influence of the Jesuits (read that Jews), because the three initial letters of Chevaliers Bienfaisants, C.H.B., are equal to 3, 8, 2 = 13, signifying the letter N, meaning Nostri. Another result was a league between Masonry and the Illuminati, and it is still a matter of speculation whether these latter were not behind the Jews, brought about by the exertions of Spartacus or Weishaupt, who had long ago discerned the influence he could obtain by the co-operation of the Masons, whom he, of course, employed as his unconscious tools.
But Jewish influence, at that time, was too powerful to be overcome; they sided with, and thus strengthened the influence of the duke; hence the opposition of Germany to the principles of the French Revolution, which broke out soon after, an opposition which was like discharging a rocket against a thunderbolt, but which was carried to its height by the manifesto of the Duke of Brunswick, so loudly praised by courtly historians, and which the German princes made such good use as to induce the German confederacy to surround France with a fiery line of deluded patriotism. Freemasonry had been made the tool of prince and priest-craft, though occasionally it turned the tables on the prince, an instance of which is recorded in the next paragraph.
The sudden retreat of the King of Prussia, having invaded France in 1792, has never been satisfactorily explained. Dr. E.E. Eckert, in his "Magazine of Evidence for the Condemnation of the Masonic Order," writes as follows, quoting from a private letter from M.V.....z, of Paris, to Baron von S......z, at Vienna, which he qualifies as "thoroughly reliable": "The King of Prussia had crossed our frontiers; he was, I believe, at Verdun or Thionville. One evening a confidential gave him the Masonic sign, and took him into a subterranean vault, where he left him alone. By the light of the lamps illuminating the room, the king saw his ancestor, Frederick the Great, approaching him. There could be no mistake as to his voice, dress, gait, features. The spirit reproached the king for his alliance with Austria against France, and commanded him immediately to withdraw therefrom. You know that the king acted accordingly, to the great disgust of his allies, to whom he did not communicate the reasons for his withdrawal. Some years afterwards our celebrated actor Fleury, who acquired such representation by his performance at the Théâtre Francais in 'The Two Pages,' in which piece he represented Frederick the Great to perfection, confessed that he acted the ghost when Frederick William III, was mystified by an appearance, which had been planned by General Dumouriez." Dumouriez was a Freemason.
People became intensely interested in the activities of the Illuminati as a result of information leaking out regarding their diabolical plans.
In 1785, four more leading members of the Illuminati left the Society and testified before a Court of Inquiry called by the Elector of Bavaria.
Their startling evidence removed all doubt regarding the Satanic nature of Illuminism. On the 11th of October, 1785, the Bavarian authorities raided Zwack's house and discovered a mountainous array of Illuminati documents which showed quite clearly that they planned to bring about a, "universal revolution that should deal the death-blow to society . . . This revolution will be the work of the Secret Societies, and that is one of our great mysteries."
Illuminism Came To America Before The Colonies Were United
The Order of the Illuminati started when the American Revolution was already under way, and therefore played no significant part in it. It was brought to America by the Jewish immigrants, and colonists who had been sent to Europe and were introduced to it while there. Therefore, before the Colonies were united, the Constitution adopted, and our Republic established, fifteen lodges of the Order of the Illuminati were formed in the thirteen Colonies. The Columbian Lodge of the Order of the Illuminati was established in New York City in 1785. Members included Governor DeWitt Clinton, and later Clinton Roosevelt, Charles Dana and Horace Greeley.
Warnings were issued about the activities of the Illuminati in America. On July 19th, 1798, David Pappen, President of Harvard University issued a strong warning to the graduating class and lectured them on the influence Illuminsm was having on the American scene. President Timothy Dwight of Yale University issued a similar warning.
George Washington, in 1798, sent a letter to a G.W. Snyder in which he stated: "It is not my intention to doubt that the doctrine of the Illuminati and the principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more satisfied of this fact than I am. The idea I meant to convey was that I did not believe the Lodges of Freemasons in this country had, as societies, endeavored to propagate the diabolical tenets . . . "
One year later, Professor John Robinson published his famous "Proofs of A conspiracy" in which he warned the world of Illuminati infiltration of Masonic Lodges.
Street Layout of Washington D.C.
A curious piece of the Masonic conspiracy puzzle in the founding of America is the actual street layout for our Capital City, Washington, D.C. Remember, 53 of the original signers of the Declaration of Independence were Masons. The city was laid out in the form of Key Masonic Symbols, the Square, the Compass, the Rule, and the Pentagram.
Take any good street map of downtown Washington, D.C. and find the Capitol Building. Facing the Capitol from the Mall and using the Capitol as the head or top of the Compass, the left leg is formed by Pennsylvania Avenue and the right leg by Maryland Avenue. The Square is found in the usual Masonic position with the intersection of Canal Street and Louisiana Avenue. The left leg of the Compass stands on the White House and the right leg stands on the Jefferson Memorial, the circle drive and short streets behind the Capitol form the head and ears of what Satanists call the Goat of Mendes or Goat's Head.
On top of the White House is an inverted five-pointed star, or Pentagram. The point is facing South in true occult fashion. It sits within the intersections of Connecticut and Vermont Avenues north to Dupont and Logan Circles, with Rhode Island and Massachusetts going to Washington Circle to the West and Mt. Vernon Square on the East. The center of the Pentagram is 16th Street where, 13 blocks due north of the very center of the White House, the Masonic House of the Temple sits at the top of his occult iceberg.
The Washington Monument stands in perfect line to the intersecting point of the form of the Masonic Square, stretching from the House of the Temple to the Capitol Building. Within the hypotenuse of that right triangle sit many of the headquarters buildings for the most powerful departments of government, such as the Justice Department, the U.S. Senate, and the Internal Revenue Service.
It would be great to know that our Capitol is bathed in continual prayer, and to believe that its buildings and monuments have been dedicated in prayer, but do you realize that every key federal building, from the White House to the Capitol Building, Has had a cornerstone laid in a Masonic Ritual and is the depositary of Masonic Paraphernalia? If we were talking about the one true God, it would be wonderful; this is not the case. The cornerstones of all these buildings have been laid in Masonic ritual, dedicated to the demonic god of Masonry, Jao-Bul-On.
That is the secret name of the Masonic god, the "Lost Word" in the rite of the Royal Arch degree. "Jao" is the Greek name for the god of the Jewish Gnostics, laldabaoth or lao. "Bul" is a rendering of the name Ba'al and "On" is the Babylonian name of Osiris.
What we see represented in this name of the Masonic deity is a three-headed pagan deity that is blasphemous to a Christian. The ritual and full explanation is found in Duncan's Masonic Ritual and Monitor.
In 1796, John Adams, who had been instrumental in organizing Masonic Lodges in New England, decided to oppose Thomas Jefferson in his bid for the presidency. He made a major issue of the fact that Jefferson, who had been minister to France, 1785-1789, and was frankly sympathetic to the Illuminist-fomented Reign of Terror, was using Masonic lodges for subversive purposes.
John Quincy Adams wrote three letters to Colonel William L. Stone giving details of the charges. The information contained in these letters is credited with winning John Adams (his father) the presidency.
The existence of these letters was first brought to the public's attention by Commander William Guy Carr in his book, "Pawns in the Game". And until recently they were in the Rittenburg Square Library in Philadelphia. They have since vanished mysteriously.
To trace their activities further, it becomes essential that we look for prominent individuals and groups who adhere to the Satanic tenets of Illuminism. It is "by their fruits" that we will know them. They will all be working toward the attainment of the goal of the Illuminati, the destruction of national sovereignty and the establishment of a One World Government, a "Novus Ordo Seclorum."
In 1829, American Illuminists sponsored a series of lectures in New York by English Illuminist, Frances "Fanny" Wright. She advocated the entire Weishauptian program of her auxiliary of the Order of the Illuminati including Communism made more palatable by the label of "equal opportunity and equal rights," atheism, emancipation of women, and free love. Those present were informed that the Illuminati intended to unite the Nihilist and Atheist groups with all other subversive organizations into an international organization to be known as Communism.
This new destructive force was to be used by the Illuminati to foment future wars and revolutions. Clinton Roosevelt (a direct ancestor of Theodore and Franklin D. Roosevelt), Charles Dana and Horace Greeley were appointed a committee to raise funds for this new undertaking. Has America been flooded with these phrases: Equal rights and equal opportunity, free love and emancipation of women, since the 1960's?
The Feminist Movement
Most Americans believe the feminist movement was begun in order to bring about the equality of disenfranchised women. Don't believe that for a single moment. Although working women have benefitted from the movement, in some ways, and all who possess a sense of fairness support those benefits, that's not the prime reason the movement exists. The prime reason is to divide and conquer.
As bizarre as it may seem, the motive behind feminism is to drive a wedge between men and women thereby creating social conflict. It's the Marxist scheme of class warfare. There is no doubt the movement is led by the lesbian faction, who are the world's most fervent men haters.
With study, much of the material and scripts written for entertainers, especially the so-called female stand-up comics, degrades and denigrates men; and most of their sewer-grade comedy is sexual in nature.
All too many advertisements on TV subtly downgrade men, in the eyes of their wives, and children. (And God made man in His image for His glory whereas woman is made in the image of man to be his glory)! But the overwhelming majority of women have not caught on to the sinister implications of the feminist movement, even though many don't like it and the purpose of this movement is undetected by the masses.
Revolution Around The World
Giuseppe Mazzini was an Illuminati and held the rank of 33 degree Mason. He is also the founder of the MAFIA, which is named after him. M.A.F.I.A. = Mazzini Autorizza Furti, Incendi, Avvelenamenti. (Mazzini Authorizes Thefts, Arson, Poisoning). -Andrew Varna, World Underworld, Page 58 Museum Press London, 1957
In 1834, Giuseppe Mazzini, the Italian revolutionary leader, was appointed by the Illuminati as director of their revolutionary program around the world. He held this position until he died in 1872. At about this same time an obscure intellectual by the name of Moses Mordecai Marx Levy, alias Karl Marx [born of Jewish parents], joined one of the branch organizations of the Illuminati conspiracy known as the League of the Just.
In 1847, he was hired, by the Rothschilds and the Fabians, to write what became known as the Communist Manifesto. It was, basically taken from the works of the Kabbala and the Talmud, and was/is a policy statement of the Jews' overall plan for the future.
The next important personality to emerge on the American scene as a leader in the Satanic conspiracy was Albert Pike. He was selected by Mazzini to head their operations in the United States. Albert Pike was an evil genius of the first magnitude. He was a man of many talents who invariably used his abilities to destructive ends. He was highly literate, and able to read and write in 16 ancient languages.
He was an avowed worshiper of Satan by name, practicing necromancy and all forms of sorcery. As the top Illuminsts, Pike and Mazzini worked in unison. Pike took control of the theosophical side of their operations, while Mazzini was in charge of the political.
When the Grand Orient lodges of Masonry became suspect as a result of Mazzini's revolutionary activities in Europe, Mazzini presented a Master Plan to Pike who was by then the head of the ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. Mazzini's plan was simple.
Being a practical man, he understood that it was inadvisable to favor one rite to the exclusion of all the others. In a letter to Pike, dated January 22, 1870, he wrote: "We must allow all of 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 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."
Historian Dominico Margiotta tells us that, "It was agreed that the existence of this rite would be kept strictly secret and that no mention of it would ever be made in the assemblies of the Lodges and Inner Shrines of other rites, even when by accident the meeting might happen to be composed exclusively of brothers having the perfect initiation, for the secret of the new institution was only to be divulged with the greatest caution to a chosen few belonging to the ordinary high grades."
Pike originated this ultra-secret organization under the name of The New and Reformed Palladian Rite. He established three supreme councils: one in Charleston, S.C. another in Rome, Italy, and the third in Berlin, Germany.
Historian Dr. Bataille wrote: "this super rite, which is Masonic Luciferian spiritism, must not be confused with the machinery of high Masonry, Palladism is the Cult of Satan in the inner shrines of a rite superimposed on all the rites. It is a cult, a religion."
The Supreme Pontiff Of Freemasonry
One of Albert Pike's most famous works is the 861-page Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, published in 1871. The "Supreme Pontiff" of Universal Freemasonry leaves no doubt as to what he has in mind.
"Force, unregulated or irregulated, is not only wasted in the void like that of gunpowder burned in the open air, and steam unconfined by science; but striking in the dark, and its blows meeting only the air, they recoil and bruise itself. It is destruction and ruin . . . not growth and progress . . . The blind Force of the people is a Force that must be economized, and also managed . . . it must be regulated by intellect. To attack the citadels built up on all sides against the human race by superstitions, despotisms, and prejudices, the force must have a brain and a law. Then its deeds of daring produce permanent results, and there is real progress. Then there are sublime conquests . . . When all Forces are combined, and guided by the Intellect (Illuminati) and regulated by the Rule of Right, and Justice, and of combined and systematic movement and effort, the great revolution prepared for by the ages will begin to march . . . It is because Force is ill-regulated that revolutions prove failures."
When reading these statements by Pike, it is clear he had access to the plan for world revolution and eventual domination as described in the Protocols of Zion. For we find these same thoughts expressed this way in the Protocols: "It must be noted that men with bad instincts are more in number than the good, and therefore the best results in governing them are attained by violence and terrorization, and not by academic discussions. Every man aims at power, everyone would like to become a dictator if only he could, and rare indeed are the men who would not be willing to sacrifice the welfare of all for the sake of securing their own welfare . . . In the beginnings of the structure of society they were subjected to brutal and blind force; afterwards, to Law, which is the same force, only disguised. I draw the conclusion that by the law of nature right lies in force . . . Political freedom is an idea but not a fact. This idea one must know how to apply whenever it appears necessary with this bait of an idea to attract the masses of the people to one's party for the purpose of crushing another who is in authority. This task is rendered easier if the opponent has himself been infected with the idea of freedom, so-called liberalism, and, for the sake of an idea, is willing to yield some of his power. It is precisely here that the triumph of our theory appears; the slackened reins of government are immediately, by the law of life, caught up and gathered together by a new hand, because the blind might of the nation cannot for one single day exist without guidance, and the new authority merely fits into the place of the old already weakened by liberalism . . . If every state has two foes and if in regard to the external foe it is allowed and not considered immoral to use every manner and art of conflict, as for example to keep the enemy in ignorance of plans of attack and defense . . . "
"By want and the envy and hatred which it engenders we shall move the mobs and with their hands we shall wipe out all those who hinder us on our way. When the hour strikes for our Sovereign Lord of all the World to be crowned it is these same hands which will sweep away everything that might be a hindrance thereto . . . This hatred will be still further magnified by the effects of an economic crisis, which will stop dealings on the exchanges and bring industry to a standstill. We shall create by all the secret subterranean methods open to us and with the aid of gold, which is all in our hands, a universal economic crisis whereby we shall throw upon the streets whole mobs of workers simultaneously in all the countries . . . These mobs will rush delightedly to shed the blood of those whom, in the simplicity of their ignorance, they have envied from their cradles, and whose property they will then be able to loot."
The theological dogma of Albert Pike is laid out in the 'Instructions' issued by him on July 14, 1889 to the 23 Supreme Councils of the world:
"That which we must say to the crowd is: 'We worship a god, but it is the god one adores without superstition.' 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 (the Christian God) whose deeds prove his cruelty, perfidy, and hatred of man, barbarism and repulsion for science, would Adonay and his priests calumniate 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 stat ue, and the brake to the locomotive . . . The doctrine of Satanism is a 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.'"
Illuminist propaganda would have us believe that all those who oppose Christianity are atheists. This is a deliberate lie circulated to hide the secret plans of those who are directing the Luciferian conspiracy.
They remain behind the scenes, their identity and true purpose hidden even from the vast majority of those they deceive into doing their will.
They know that the final success of their diabolical plans to usurp the powers of world government depends upon their ability to keep the truth hidden from the people until it's too late to stop its execution.
As we shall see, the Illuminati has been working on a definite step-by-step plan for the systematic destruction of civilization and the establishment of their despotic rule.
In a remarkable letter dated August 15, 1871, which until recently was on display in the British Museum Library in London, Pike gave Mazzini details of the Luciferian plan for world conquest.
In graphic detail he outlined plans for three world wars. He stated that in the third of these wars, "we shall unleash the Nihilists and 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 (direction), anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the pure light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view, a manifestation which will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."
The Bible confirms this Satanic rise to world power in Revelation 13:1-2: " . . . I saw a beast (government) rise up out of the sea (of humanity, . . . and the dragon (Satan) gave him his Power and his Seat and Great Authority."
Who Is The God of Masonry?
Remember, when the Bavarian government raided Zwack's home the Illuminati plans they confiscated said: " . . . this revolution will be the work of the Secret Societies, and that is one of our great mysteries."
If the Illuminati-Freemasonry-Judaism mysteries are working for world government and wish to keep it a secret, they must conceal and hide the truth of their actions.
Albert Pike wrote: "Nothing excites men's curiosity so much as a 'Mystery', concealing things which they desire to know, and nothing so much increases curiosity as obstacles that interpose to prevent them from indulging in the gratification of their desires. Of this the Legislators and Hierophants took advantage, to attract the people to their sanctuaries, and to induce them to seek to obtain lessons from which they would perhaps have turned away with indifference, if they had been pressed upon them."
Arthur Waite, another Masonic writer, tells us that Masonry, "is on the surface a 'system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols."
Ralph Anderson, a 32nd degree Mason, further expounds the hidden symbolism of Masonry: "Masonry may be defined as a system of symbols, a collection of allegories, and a pictorial form which veils and hides a truth so general and universal that man cannot live without it. An allegory is a story which is susceptible of two meanings, an outer one which captivates the fancy and engrosses the attention, and an inner one which conveys to the initiate some basic cosmic and human truth by which a man must live. A symbol is an outer and visible form which hides or veils an inner spiritual reality. The Masonic Temple work abounds with such symbols, and through them is revealed to the intelligent Mason the story of his own progress and also the evolutionary history of the race of men."
Again quoting Waite: " . . . the newly received Brother has come into a world of emblems or symbolism and whatsoever takes place therein has a meaning behind it, being one which is not always indicated on the surface."
In fact, Masonry Intentionally Misleads those Masons who have recently joined. Pike claims: "The symbols and ceremonies of Masonry have more than one meaning. They rather conceal than disclose the Truth." If you have been disappointed in the first three degrees, as you have received them . . . remember that . . . symbols were used, not to reveal but to conceal . . . So Masonry jealously conceals its secrets, and intentionally leads conceited interpreters astray."
Pike stated on page 819: "The Blue Degrees (the first three degrees of Masonry) are but the outer court or portion of the Temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the initiate, but he is intentionally misled by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them; but it is intended that he shall imagine he understands them. Their true explication is reserved for the Adepts (those who have advanced to the highest degrees in Masonry) . . . It is well enough for the mass of those called Masons to imagine that all is contained in the Blue Degrees; and whose attempts to undeceive them will labor in vain . . . "
Finally, Pike adds: "Masonry, Like All The Religions, all the Mysteries, Hermeticism and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled; to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light, from them, and to draw them away from it."
Masons emphasize that to participate in the Masonic rituals one must believe in a "Supreme Being." "Freemasonry is available to any man of good character who believes in a Supreme Being and is closed only to avowed atheists and agnostics," claims Ralph Anderson.
Since the Bible cautions us that, "Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God and Him only shalt thou serve," and the Masons worship a Supreme Being, is this Supreme Being the same God as the Christians worship or is he a different god? As you read on you will find out who this "Supreme Being" really is, but this "Supreme Being" is not the only god Masons worship!
Although many Masons may be unaware of the Polytheism in Masonry, Many gods and goddesses are worshiped through the Symbolism and Rituals of Masonry. One poem, written by a Mason, J.S.M. Ward, sums up some of the Mythology that is prevalent in masonry:
Bacchus died and rose again,
On the Golden Syrian Plain;
Osiris rose from out his grave;
And thereby mankind did save;
Adonis likewise shed his blood,
By the yellow Syrian flood,
Zoroaster brought to birth,
Mithra from his cave of earth,
And we today in Christian lands,
We with them can all join hands.
Bachus, Osiris, Adonia, and Mithra are some of the many 'GODS' worshiped by Occultists and through different Masonic ceremonies. It matters not to the Mason that God proclaims: "Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God and Him only shalt thou serve."
Osiris is the Egyptian god of the dead as well as a sun-god. In Thrace and Greece he is known as Dionysus, the god of pleasures, partying and wine. Festivals held in his honor often resulted in human sacrifices and orgiastic rites.
In Rome he is called Liber or Bacchus. The Lydians call him Bassareus, and in Persia, where his followers practice astrology, he is identified as Mithras. He is Zagreus to the Cretans and "became an underworld divinity who welcomed the souls of the dead to Hades and helped with their purification," according to Paul Hamlyn who informs us that since Zagreus was killed and resurrected (in mythology) he "became the symbol of everlasting life."
The Phrygians know Osiris as Sabazius and honor him as a solar deity who was represented by horns and whose emblem was a Serpent!
In other places he went by other names such as Deouis, The Boy Jupiter, The Centaur, Orion, The Boy Plutus, Iswara, The Winged One, Nimrod, Adoni, Hermes, Prometheus, Poseidon, Butes, Dardanus, Himeros, Imbros, Iasius, Zeus, Iacchus, Hu, Thor, Bel, Serapis, Ormuzd, Appolo, Thammuz, Atus, Hercules, and believe it or not, Baal! Most of these gods were solar deities or sun-gods. The Worship Of The Sun, disguised as gods and symbols, plays a very important role in Masonry!
It is to this god, Osiris (under the name of Hiram Abiff), that the Masons pay honor in the third degree. The Drama for this degree (Master Mason) involves a death and resurrection ceremony.
The Master Mason-to-be is said to be working on Solomon's Temple. He is in possession of the name of God (the "Lost Word" of Masonry) and he has promised to reveal this to the other workers when the Temple is finished.
Since the wages are higher for those who possess this name, the other workers become jealous and insist that he reveal the name to them before the Temple is finished. When he refuses to do so, three angry ruffians kill and hastily bury him.
Eventually his grave is discovered and, on the third attempt, he is raised to life again. The first word he spoke is the substitute for the "Lost Word" and it is this word that is said to be passed down to Master Masons today.
Any one familiar with Egyptian mythology should see the correlation between the myth of Hiram Abiff and of the Egyptian god, Osiris. Pierson contends: "We readily recognize in Himram Abiff the Osiris of the Egyptians . . . " "In Egypt the dead man was identified with Osiris, and addressed as Osiris." Waite acknowledges: "There is no question that the myth of Osiris covers the whole story of mystical life and is presented in the Funerary Ritual (the death and resurrection ceremony of the third degree) as the soul's own story. There is no more eloquent valediction to the departing soul than that which says: Thou hast gone living to Osiris. The promise is life in Osiris. The great doctrine, the great revelation of all the true Mysteries is that Osiris lives . . . We also as Masons look forward to union of the departed with Osiris . . . "
The Late Rev. Alexander Hislop related: "It is admitted that the secret system of Freemasonry was originally founded on the Mysteries of the Egyptian Isis, the goddess-mother, or wife of Osiris. But what could have led to the union of a Masonic body with these Mysteries, had they not had particular reference to architecture, and had the god who was worshiped in them not been celebrated for his success in perfecting the arts of fortification and building? Now, if such were the case, considering the relation in which, as we have already seen, Egypt stood to Babylon, who would naturally be looked up to there as the great patron of the Masonic art?"
These Masonic authors realize that the ceremonies are only based on Myths or Fables. Collier's Encyclopedia states: "Masonry fosters an elaborate Mythology . . . "
But since they have turned from the truth, there is only the false left. W.L. Wilmshurst, a Mason, points out: "It matters nothing whether the prototype be one whose historical actuality and identity can be demonstrated, or whether he can be regarded only as Legendary or Mythical . . . In Egypt the prototype was Osiris, who was slain by his malignant brother Typhon, but whose mangled limbs were collected in a coffer from which he emerged reintegrated and divinized. In Greece the prototype was Bacchus, who was torn to pieces by the Titans. Baldur in Scandinavia and Mithra in Graeco-Roman Europe were similar prototypes. In Masonry the prototype is Hiram Abiff..."
Many Masons believe that they are acting out the death and resurrection ritual of Christ. Even if this were the case, which it is not, this ritual would be blasphemous for a Christian, but these Masons are actually acting out the Myth of Osiris and Isis, two Pagan deities of Egypt. Isis was considered to be "supreme in Magical power . . . " and "she was the goddess of . . . Magic." Osiris committed incest by marrying his sister, Isis, so those portraying him are not very righteous characters are they? Also, several symbols in the Lodge that Masons should readily recognize are the sun, the point within a circle, the Tau Cross, and the All-Seeing Eye, all symbols representing Osiris!
Not only do Masons rely on Fables, but they also take the place of Christ. In the 19th degree of the Scottish Rite, called "Grand Pontiff," Masons attend a pageant in which part of the book of Revelation is enacted. Waite recounts this drama: "Amidst darkness and isolation thereafter the officers of the chapter proclaim the dominion of the beast, the opening of the seven vials of revelation and the fall of Babylon . . . The Candidate is brought into light and is shewn the four-square city coming down out of Heaven . . . while He who sits upon the throne, through He is called the Lord God Almighty and Redeemer, is not the Christ of St. John . . . The Candidate is anointed with oil, is made and proclaimed a priest forever according to the Order of Melchizedek . . . The New Jerusalem is interpreted as Ancient Masonry."
Although Delmar Darrah, a 33rd degree Mason, assures us that "there never has been any conflict between the church and Freemasonry." We can see several points of conflict between the pageantry of the degree of Grand Pontiff and the Bible.
First, we notice that the person who sits on the throne is called "The Lord God Almighty and Redeemer," but he "Is Not the Christ of St. John." If he is not the Christ of the Bible, then who is he? Read on and you will discover who the god of Masonry really is!
Second, we see that the Mason is anointed with oil and proclaimed "a priest forever according to the Order of Melchizedek." But Hebrews 5:5 and 9 clearly state that "Christ glorified not Himself to be made an high priest" but was "called of God an high priest after the order of Melchizedek." But Masons glorify themselves and take on themselves the honor of the priesthood that was given to Christ alone.
Third, notice that Masons interpret the "New Jerusalem" as "Ancient Masonry!"
The 25th degree of the Scottish Rite is called "Knight of the Brazen Serpent." Again Waite describes this degree and reveals to us that the twelve signs of the Zodiac are illustrated and a Tau Cross, encompassed by a serpent is in the east. The Master retires to call upon God and then . . . "returns bearing a Symbol of Salvation, being a Brazen Serpent entwined about the Tau Cross . . . It is given thereafter to the Candidate, as a symbol of faith, repentance and mercy."
Again we can see conflict between the degrees of Masonry and the Bible. The Bible warns against astrology, yet the Lodge is set up in such a way as to correspond with the twelve signs of the Zodiac, which is astrology. We also notice that the symbol of salvation is the "Brazen Serpent!" Once again Christ is set aside for another symbol of salvation. The Bible specifies that the Serpent represents Satan, but Masonry uses the Serpent as a Symbol of Salvation!
In conjunction with the Serpent, let's look at the Masonic apron. Wilmshurst writes: "Brethren, I charge you to regard your apron as one of the most precious and speaking symbols our Order has to give you."
This statement is quite intriguing. When Adam and Eve sinned, they sewed together an apron of fig leaves. We find however, God was not pleased with the aprons, and He made the coats of skin to clothe them; but Waite indicates "in Craft Masonry and its connection the apron is the only proper and possible clothing."
In the first degree of Masonry the candidate is given an unadorned white apron which indicates purity of soul. In the second degree blue Rosettes are added to the apron to indicate that progress has been made in regeneration. In the third degree Wilmshurst explains that: " . . . still further progress is emblematic by the increased blue adornments of the Apron, as also by its silver tassels and the Silver Serpent is the emblem of divine wisdom knitting the soul's new-made vesture together."
The newly initiated Mason is instructed that his white apron is the "MOST PRECIOUS" symbol of Masonry and that it represents purity. We must remember, however, that this apron is a Symbol. What then, is the real meaning behind this object? To find out we must return to Mythology.
Pike notes that the god Jupiter Ammon's picture was painted with the sign of the Ram or Lamb. He mentions that Jupiter Ammon is "the same as Osiris, Adoni, Adonis, Atys, and the other sun-gods..."
Hutchinson also notes that Jupiter Ammon is "painted with horns." And that he is the "same as Baal or Moloch . . . (and) Adonis, whom some ancient authors call Osiris."
His ceremonies "consisted in clothing the Initiate with the skin of a white lamb. And in this we see the origin of the apron of white sheep-skin used in Masonry." So, the apron was used in connection with the ceremonies of Osiris and this apron is the "only proper" clothing, according to Waite.
In the third degree a Serpent is added to the apron as an emblem of divine wisdom! The Entered Apprentice Handbook points out that:
" . . . the Serpent is regarded as 'The Shining One' the Holy wisdom itself. Thus we see that the Serpent on our apron denotes that we are encircled by the Holy Wisdom . . . The snake is peculiarly associated with (the Hindu god) Shiva, the Destroyer, whose close symbolic association with the third (Masonic) degree is obvious . . . He is depicted making the (sign) of a Master Mason."
Another god, Shiva, is now introduced into the Pantheon of Masonry. Shiva has numerous wives and, ". . . wanders naked about the countryside on his white bull Nandi, overindulging in drugs, and encouraging starvation and self mutilation. The innermost sanctuaries of Shiva temples always feature a lingam, the stylized erect phallus which symbolizes his rampant sexuality."
The Serpent is quite prevalent and important in Masonry. When Jim Shaw, a former Mason Masonry, went to the Temple to receive his 33rd degree, he reported: ". . . the thing that is most noticeable is the way the walls are decorated with Serpents. There are all kinds, some very long and large. Many of the Scottish Rite degrees include the representation of Serpents and I recognized them among those decorating the walls."
Albert Pike devotes page after page of his book to the prevalence and worship of Serpents. He discloses that, "The Phoenicians called the serpent Agathodemon (the GOOD spirit) . . ." "In reality, the hawk-headed Serpent, genius of light, or good genius, was the symbol of the sun." The horned SERPENT was the hieroglyphic for a God."
Two other names for Osiris are Bel and Hu. Pike relates to us that, "The Greeks call Bel 'Beliar,' and Hesychius interprets that word to mean a Dragon or great Serpent." and "The British God Hu was called 'The Dragon was cast out, that old Serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world . . ."
Other connections to Satan can be found. Pike, writing about the pagan god Thor, reveals that "Thor was the sun, the Egyptian Osiris and Kneph, the Phoenician Bel or Baal." Bel (or Baal) was believed to be the "lord of the air" as well as sun-god. Remember also that the god Baal is a synonym for the devil. Baal "had the body of a spider and three heads, those of a man, a toad and a cat." This god, under the name of Thor, is called "the Prince of the Power of the Air."
Baal worship is condemned by the Bible, and in Ephesians we find that Satan is called the "prince of the power of the air." Not only does Satan have the same title as is given to the god Thor, but we should notice that the word "Thor" means "thunder" Thor "was the god of lightning and thunder in Norse mythology."
This is a significant statement, for Satanists use the lighting bolt as a symbol of Satan. Satanic rock groups also use the symbol, called a "Satanic 'S'" which resembles a lightning bolt and is probably taken from the reference in Luke 10:18 where Jesus says: "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven." One of these Satanic rock groups called KISS (Knights in Satan's Service) has a song on entitled "God of Thunder." This song claims:
I was raised by the demons,
A modern day man of steel,
Trained to reign as the one,
I gather darkness to please me,
God of Thunder and Rock and Roll,
I command you to kneel,
The sound you're under,
Before the god of thunder,
Will slowly rob you of your virgin soul.
The god of rock and roll,
I'm the Lord of the Wasteland
This god is obviously Satan. Is it any wonder that the Bible further informs us that this "prince of the power of the air" is "the spirit that now worketh in the Children of Disobedience . . . ?" Since the gods of Masonry (Thor, Baal, Shiva, Pan, Osiris, etc.) actually represent Satan in different camouflages, and since the Serpent is widespread in Masonry, and the Bible clearly states that the Serpent is Satan, we see that the Masons are in actuality worshiping Satan (Lucifer).
Of course, Masonic writers themselves plainly confess to us who they worship! Who is it? None other than Satan (Lucifer)! Hutchinson gives the following comment about the fall of man: "But alas, he (Adam) fell! By disobedience he forfeited all his glory and felicity; and, wonderful to recount in the midst of this exalted state, Satan prevailed." The footnote on this sentence gives this explanation: "Thus originated the introduction of a serpent among the symbols of Freemasonry . . . Serpent-worship derives its origin from the same source."
Another footnote elsewhere in this book is a quote from 'Key to the New Testament', which states in part: "The corruptions flowing from the Egyptian philosophy, when adapted to Christianity, were these: they held that the god of the "Jews" was the Demiurgus . . . the serpent who deceived Eve ought to be honored for endeavoring to rescue men from their slavery to the Demiugus."
Pike brags: "Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the spirit of darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! [Here Pike is denying Christ as the Light of the world and giving that designation to Lucifer, the Devil] Is it he who bears the light . . . ? Doubt it not!"
Masonic testimony is clear that the serpent or Satan (Lucifer) should be worshiped. In fact, the "Lost Word" of Masonry has to do with Satan.
Masons have been in search of a so-called "Lost Word" which is supposed to be the real name of God, but has been lost. In the third degree the Mason is given a substitute word and told to look "to that bright and Morning Star . . . "
Waite suggests that the Word revealed in the third degree "was of similar value to our old friend Abracadabra." He mentions elsewhere that: " . . . since the sphere of Ritual is also a sphere of sorcery, on proceeding to initiation he is given the symbol Abracadabra . . . and is told it is the true word."
Most people know that the word "abracadabra" has to do with magic, but did you know that this word comes from Abraxas? Abraxas is a demon! Masons are actually taught that this demon is the True Word.
However, this word is only a substitute. Then, in the 13th degree (Royal Arch) he is given the name of the "Lost Word" of Masonry. Let's see, first of all, who is the "Bright and Morning Star" and then let's look at the "Lost Word" and who is represented thereby.
Revelation 22:16 explains: "I, Jesus . . . am the root and offspring of David, and the Bright and Morning Star." Now, do the Masons worship Jesus as the "bright and Morning Star?" There are several reasons why this answer is "No!" One reason is that everything in the lodge is symbolical of something else, so if the "Bright and Morning Star" is Christ in reality, it is only a symbol to the Mason. In addition, Wilmshurst admits that "Hebrew Biblical names represent not persons, but personifications of spiritual principles . . . "
There is a greater reason, however, that we know that the "bright and morning star" is not Christ, and that is from Masonic testimony. Waite, describing one picture in his book, analyzes it as: "There is a globe in her right hand on which is balanced a Genius, holding a torch, and said to typify the Morning Star or Lucifer . . . From a Masonic point of view, the symbol in its plenary sense is the coming forth of conquering Light."
Masonic testimony points out that the morning star is "Lucifer" and that this symbol represents the "coming forth of conquering light." So, when Masons speak of the light of Masonry, they are actually referring to Lucifer bringing forth the light. Lucifer, as you may already know, means "Light Bearer" or "Light Bringer." The Bible also informs us that Satan (Lucifer) comes disguised as "an angel of Light."
As mentioned earlier, another name for Osiris is Mithras. According to The World Book Encyclopedia, Mithras "was an angel of light who fought on the side of the god Ahura-Mazda . . . The Zoroastrian scriptures called Mithras 'the Heavenly Light.'"
He was also identified with the Sun. The mention of Ahura-Mazda is interesting for it is this god that the lecture of the 32nd degree of Masonry describes. In this lecture Ahura-Mazda is called the "spirit of light."
The Masons are then instructed to: "Look to the East, my brothers . . . and behold the seven-pointed star, the great symbol of this degree, with the seven colors of the rainbow. The seven colors and seven points represent the seven potencies of Ahura. Observe now the great Delta of Pythagoras consisting of 36 lights arranged in eight rows to form an equilateral triangle. The light of the apex of the Delta represents Ahura-Mazda, Source of All Light."
The lecture continues and the Masons are told that the "trilateral name for god is composed of " three Hindu gods: Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva. Siva (or Shiva), is a synonym for Satan! In fact, Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan, lists Shiva, Lucifer and Pan (among others) in his Satanic Bible as Synonyms For Satan!
Lucifer, then, is the god honored and revered by masons as the true god! J. Edward Decker, Jr., a former Mason, gives us a quote from Albert Pike, a 33rd degree Mason.
On July 14, 1889, Pike gave instructions to the 23 Supreme Councils of the World:
"That which we must say to the crowd is, We worship a God, but it is the god that one adores without superstition. To you Sovereign Grand Inspectors General (the name of the 33rd degree, the highest degree known to the world in Scottish Rite Masonry), 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 . . . Yes, Lucifer is god . . . the pure philosophical religion is the belief in Lucifer . . . Lucifer, god of light and god of good . . . "
With this admission, is it any wonder that Pike is called the "Pontiff of Luciferian Freemasonry?" In addition, he is adored by Masonic authors such as Waite, who brags: "I believe . . . his name will be . . . of precious memory in all American Masonry." In fact, Morals and dogma, a book written by Pike, is the handbook for Masons. When Jim Shaw earned his 32nd degree, he, as well as the others present, were given, " . . . a copy of Albert Pike's book . . . We were told that it was THE source book for Freemasonry and its meaning. We were also told that it must never leave our possession, and that arrangements must be made so that upon our deaths it would be returned to the Scottish Rite."
Also, C. Fred Kleinknecht, a 33rd degree Mason said he: " . . . told all Masons that last January that one particular book was to be their daily guide for living, their 'Bible.'" That book, said Kleinknecht, is Albert Pike's Morals and Dogma. The majority of Masons in the first few degrees are not aware of the god of masonry, yet Hutchinson boasts that "the first state of a Mason is representative of the first stage of worship of the true god."
He insinuates that those outside of the Masonic ranks are not worshiping the True God! The Masons have been taught that this true god is called the "Grand Architect of the Universe" and that anyone who believes in "a" Supreme Being may join Masonry.
They have been advised that there is no conflict between Christianity and Masonry. To hide the fact of who their god is, the candidate entering Masonry must enact strange rituals, and is asked who he believes in and must answer "In God" and only after the candidate has completed the 13th degree is he told the name of the "Lost Word." Why must this word be kept secret for so long? The answer is that if the word and its meaning were revealed to the candidate in the beginning, he most likely would have never joined!
What is the "Lost Word?" Waite indicated that the "Lost Word" has to do with Wisdom, and that "Wisdom in this case is a synonym of the Word . . ."
Before I give you the "Lost Word" let me remind you that Wilmshurst claims that "the Serpent is the emblem of divine wisdom," and the Lost Word is a synonym for Wisdom, so this Word has to do with the Serpent! Well, the secret Word is "Jao-Bul-On."
You may wonder, "What does that mean?" "Jao" is the Chaldean name for God. "Bul" is a Syriac word which means "Baal," who was a Canaanite fertility god associated with licentious rites and magic.
Baal is actually another name for the Devil! "On" is the Egyptian word signifying "Osiris," the god of the underworld. So, here again, we can see Satan is deified and honored by the Masons.
We are told further (in the ritual of the 13th degree) that this "triune essence of the Deity," represents "His creative preservative, and de-creative powers." This sentence gives a very vivid description of the Hindu gods.
In the pagan religion of Hinduism, we also see a "trinity" of three gods, Brahma, the creator, Vishnu, the preserver, and Shiva, the destroyer. Waite explains: "Siva (or Shiva) is the Babylonian Bel, identical with the sun-god I A O . . . " The World Book Encyclopedia states that Bel is "another name for the god Baal," and Baal is another name for Satan, so Satan is being worshiped through the Masonic ritual, for Shiva, the god with "de-creative powers," is just another name for Satan! One more name for Satan is Pan. "He was half man and half goat . . . " and he is "usually shown with goat feet, curly hair, short horns, and a beard." An occult catalog from International Imports mentions: "In Greek mythology Pan was the god of nature . . . He is also equated with Satan and life's baser aspects." Once again we can see that Masonry honors Satan, for Hutchinson confesses: "The knowledge of the god of nature forms the first estate of our profession . . . " He also points out that the god of nature was adored under the names of Osiris and Isis (the wife/sister of Osiris).
'Via Crucis' or 'Via Lucis'?
Yes, Lucifer (Satan) is the god of Masonry and the so-called "God of Light." Wilmshurst tries to convince us that: "Christian and Masonic doctrine are identical in intention though different in method. The one says 'Via Crucis;' the other 'Via Lucis;' yet the two ways are but one way."
"Via Crucis" means "by way of the Cross" and "Via Lucis" means "by way of light." These two ways cannot be identical.
One way follows the way of the Cross of Christ, which leads to reconciliation; the other follows the way of the light of Lucifer, which leads to death.
Isn't it plain to see which path the Masons are following?Source
