Conclusion Freemasonry:Choose this day whom you will serve

Posted on 6 December, 2013 at 13:30 Comments comments (2)
“... Choose this day whom you will serve ... But as for me, and my house, we  will serve the LORD.” (Joshua 24:15) 

Matthew 6:24 says, “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” 

Power, Prestige, and Social Affiliation in Freemasonry is temporary, and eternal damnation is forever. Oath and curses spoken in secret will manifest in you and your family bloodline because of an ungodly covenant. 

Oliver Street the author of “Symbolism of the Three Degrees” stated, “The Bible is not displayed on our alters and never has been for the reason that Masons are not required to believe its teachings. We know that there is a very large element of the Craft the world over who do not believe the teachings of the New Testament… Hence, unless we are perpetrating a grim mockery, we do not employ the Bible as a profession that we as a society accept all its teachings and doctrines.”  

Revelation 22:18-19says, “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book. If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.   

Satan deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden. He tried to entice Jesus in the wilderness in the same way he entice people today. He still miss quotes the scriptures, says you will be as God, and offers you the world for your soul. Satan has not changed his methods of deception or entrapment.  

“Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory; and he said to Him, “All these things will I give you, if you fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Begone, Satan! For it is written, “You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only!” (Matthew 4:8-10).                                                                                                                     Look at what constitutes a cult and ask yourself if Freemasonry fits into that category. 

What are some of the teachings that cults hold in common? 
  1.They Deify Man                                                                                 Teaching that man may become God, or is a part of God. (Romans 3:23, Col. 1:27) 
  2.THEY HUMANIZE GOD                                                                          Some groups deny that God is eternal. Some believe in many Gods, or that all is God (Pantheism). Certain groups teach that God’s nature or state of being must be understood and reasonable to be true.  In other words, if finite man cannot understand something about God then it is not true. This technique subtly elevates man’s mental ability to that of God. (Deut. 33:26-27, John 1:1-17) 
  3.THEY MINIMIZE OR ELIMINATE SIN                                               
The biblical concept of sin is not taught, or is completely eliminated by some groups. Meanings that are biblical are changed to their own personal interpretations that are not related to the context or original intent of the author. ( John 1:29, Rom. 3:20-27, Rom. 6:1, 15, Rom. 7:7) 
  4.THEY MINIMIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF THE BIBLE                  
Some do not believe the bible is the word of God alone. Others use the bible with their own unique interpretation, which could be considered heresy. (1Tim. 4:6, 5:17, 1Peter 1:25, 3:1) 
  5. THEY HAVE A DIFFERENT WAY OF SALVATION                    
Many organized heresies teach a “Grace plus works” salvation.  Many teach that man possesses at least some ability to earn eternal life by their own works. That grace is perfected through their works. Salvation by grace through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ through His death and resurrection is denied. The cross is not sufficient. (Acts 4:12) 
  6.THEY  HAVE A DIFFERENT JESUS                                         
Virtually all cults deny the deity of Jesus Christ. They teach that Jesus is not the true God manifest in human form, but something less, such as a created being, an angel, a prophet, an ascended master or just "a god" (Secondary).  They change the clear teaching of the bible of him being the unique (Only Begotten) Son of God. (Acts 4:12, Eph. 5:23, 1 Tim. 4:10) 

What now?                                                                                                After reading what constitute a cult can you agree that Freemasonry falls into that category? If you are a Christian involved in Freemasonry or was in the past are you willing to come out of this organization and walk in God’s mercy and truth? He wants to set you and your bloodline free from the oaths (curses), obligations, and fears associated with this organization. He wants to bring healing; emotionally, mentally, and physically to you and your family bloodline. If you or your ancestors were involved in Freemasonry and you desire to be set free from the consequence of the oaths pronounced by you and your bloodline here is a prayer to help you.  Even if you only went to the first degree, keep in mind that a covenant was made. A covenant is a binding oath that you or your ancestor made that cannot be broken without consequences. Lets’ renounce the oaths, revoke the curses and repent for involvement in idolatry and pagan worship that your ancestors or you may have been involved in. 

Prayer of forgiveness and renouncement                                          
“Heavenly Father, Creator of heaven and earth, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ your Son. I come as a sinner seeking forgiveness and cleansing from all sins committed against you, and others made in your image. I honor my earthly father and mother and all of my ancestors of flesh and blood, and of the spirit by adoption, but I utterly turn away from and renounce all their sins. I forgive all my ancestors for the effects of their sins on my children and me. I confess and renounce all of my own sins. I renounce and rebuke Satan and every spiritual power of his affecting my family and me. I renounce and forsake all involvement in Freemasonry or any other lodge or craft by my ancestors and myself. I renounce witchcraft, the principal spirit behind Freemasonry, and I renounce Baphomet, the Spirit of Antichrist, and the curse of the Luciferian doctrine. I renounce the idolatry, blasphemy, secrecy, and deception of Masonry at every level. I specifically renounce the insecurity, the love of position and power, the love of money, avarice, or greed, and the pride that would have led my ancestors into Masonry. I renounce all the fears that held me in Masonry, especially the fears of death, fears of men, and fears of trusting in the name of Jesus Christ. I renounce every position held in the lodge by my ancestors or I, including  “Tyler”, “Master”, “Worshipful Master” or any other. I renounce the calling of any man “Master.” For Jesus Christ is my only master and Lord, and He forbids anyone else having that title. I renounce the entrapping of others into Masonry, and observing the helplessness of others during the rituals.

Do not fear, or be afraid: have I not told you from of old and declared it? You are my witnesses: Is there any god besides me? There is no other rock; I know not one. I am the Lord, and there is no other: besides me there is no god.” (Isaiah 44:6, 8, &45:5)

Part 5: The Royal Secret of Free Masonry— Exposed

Posted on 21 November, 2013 at 15:01 Comments comments (6)
Daniel Beresniak a Free Mason stated in his book, Symbols Of Free Masonry, “The Masonic lodge is a place where people can come together in a spirit of fraternal joy. The rules, rites and symbols allow every person to become themselves: to discover that they are all makers of meaning: to recognize themselves and others as sources of light adding to the general light, while accepting that no one of these single flames can shed light everywhere” (Daniel Beresniak Symbols Of Free Masonry).”   

Free Masonry is not a fraternity, or a social club filled with joy as Mr. Beresniak would have you believe, there is an agenda. Although Free Masonry requires a belief in a supreme God, it allows Wiccans, Muslims, Luciferians, and Christian to join and keep their bible and God, but they must worship an unknown God (GAOTU).   

Masonry has the appearance of being religious with priests, altars, having communion, bible (Mason bible), and a savior (Hiram Abiff). However, Free Masonry is not a religious organization with different doctrinal beliefs and traditions. If Free Masonry is not a social, fraternal, or religious organization then what is Free Masonry? Hopefully by the next couple of paragraphs you will know.   Masonry claims to be in search for light. In the 32 Degree they know who the light is. The Luciferians already worship him as a being of light. The Satanists, call him their master. The Great Architect Of The Universe is not the God of Old and New Testament. The Great Architect Of The Universe in Free Masonry is revealed as Lucifer whose name in Latin means —"Light Bearer”.   

Isaiah 14 "How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning...For you have said in your heart: 'I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.'"  

Lucifer (alias Ahura-Mazda) is called Son of the morning, but Jesus Christ is called the 'Bright and Morning Star' (Revelation 22:16) King James Version. In some revised Bibles Lucifer is given the same name, as Jesus, Morning Star. This gives the wrong impression that Jesus and Lucifer is the same person, which is so far from the truth. They are NOT the same person or brothers. God created Lucifer as an angel, although Lucifer wanted to be as God. Jesus Christ is the Son of God.   We have got to be careful about revised bibles because many of the words are changed to simplify the meaning, but they change the content of the message, and confuse many.                                                                                                                           

In the 14th degree the seeker of the Royal Secret was baptized and hailed a Soldier of the Truth of Ahura-Mazda, one of Lucifer's many name. In the 32nd degree the desire is to become Priest and King. The Royal Secret is that the 32nd degree Freemason has been baptized and consecrated to the service of Lucifer, whether he knows it or not. In the 32nd degree ritual the seeker of the Royal Secret receives the following pronouncement as he gets this Luciferian baptism of the 32nd degree: 

As kinsmen of our Aryan ancestors were sanctified with the Zaothra, ( Zoroastrian religion is the same as the Luciferian polytheistic religion of Mazdaism, with its chief god being Lucifer going by his alias Ahura-Mazda), or consecrated water, and there-by devoted to the service of Ahura (Lucifer). 

After this Luciferian baptism and consecration, the 32nd degree seeker of the Royal Secret is questioned as follows: If you are ready to bind yourself to the strict, punctual, unremitting performance at all points, in every place, and at all times your duties as Perfect Elu, Prince of Jeru, Knight of Rose Croix, Knight of the Sun, St. Andrew and Kodosh and Master of the Royal Secret, as these have been declared you, go and stand at the west side of the Altar of Obligation facing the east. 

The seeker of the Royal Secret in the 32nd degree thus position takes his 4th vow of allegiance to this Luciferian religion. He then is voted OK by the other Masters of the Royal Secret, and is led to: Kneel at the altar, laying thy left hand upon the book of constitutions and the symbol of Deity.

(Lights go down and voices are heard saying) One is three, three is one, Agni, Ushas, Mitra. One is three, three is one, Ahura, Mazda, Cepenta, Mainyu, Vohu-mano. MITRA — The fire, the dawn, the morning star. (Lucifer, not Yeshua or Jesus, is the god of freemasonry)                                                                                                                      

AGNI — who was borrowed from the Hindu worship of Lucifer or Mithra before the Persians named him Mitra. AGNI, INDRA, and VISHNU: Fire, Light, and Heat, the first trinity and their manifestation in the skies. As kinsmen of our Aryan ancestors sacrificed in Indra and Ahura, sacrifice thou with an offering of incense to the God in whom thou doest put thy trust. The Irano-Aryans sacrificed before dawn to Mitra, the morning star. As the kinsmen of our Aryan ancestors sacrificed to Serpenta Mainyu, the divine wisdom, sacrifice thou with an offering of incense to the God in whom thou doest put thy trust. 

Yes, the 32nd degree seekers of the Royal Secret of freemasonry offer incense to the Serpent god, Serpenta Manyu. Serpenta Mainyu is another of Lucifer's many names. The seeker of the Royal Secret of freemasonry in the 32nd degree ritual is told: It will be explained to thee when thou shalt become entitled to the explanation. The voices thou hast heard, give thee the key of interpretation. 
He then receives the emblems of his 32nd degree, the dark cordon and the Teutonic Cross of gold the jewel of the order.   

Albert Pike a mason writer of the 19th century, stated"If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay (The God of the Christians) 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 for light to serve as its foil as the pedestal is necessary to the statue, and the brake to the locomotive."    

Who was Albert Pike? He was a genius, able to read and write in 16 different languages. A 33rd degree Mason, he was one of the founding fathers, and head of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, being the Grand Commander of North American Freemasonry from 1859-1891. In 1871, he wrote the 861 pages Masonic handbook known as the Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Rite of Freemasonry.   

This book is one of the major sourcebooks of Masonic doctrine and Accepted Scottish Rite of Masonry. Morals and Dogma book by Albert Pike, is considered to be the "Mason's guide for daily living… In it Masonry is a search after Light..."   

Albert Pike explained in Morals & Dogma how the true nature of Freemasonry is kept a secret from Masons of lower degrees: "The Blue Degrees are but the outer court or portico 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, the Princes of Masonry... It is well enough for the mass of those called Masons, to imagine that all is contained in the Blue Degrees; and whoso attempts to undeceive them will labor in vain."   

This is one reason Freemasonry seems so complex and mysterious, because it is suppose to mislead and deceive the initiate, until they are fully committed into this occult. This should not be a surprise since Lucifer (Satan) himself is known as the Father of lies, and a deceiver.    

“Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory; and he said to Him, “All these things will I give you, if you fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Begone, Satan! For it is written, “You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only!” (Matthew 4:8-10).  

“The battle we are still in is the enemy’s efforts to get us to serve or worship him and not the Lord. The devil is not asking anyone to love him, only to work for him”    

In Walter Martin book, The New Cults, he defines a cult as “A group religious in nature which surrounds a leader or a group, which either denies or misinterprets essential biblical doctrines.”   

There are two ways a cult operates in falsehood, theologically and sociologically. Some are theologically dangerous others are sociologically dangerous.  Not all cults are harmful to someone’s physical well being, but they are harmful spiritually if they mislead someone in their relationship to God through another gospel. They will all have control or manipulation over people in some fashion. They will hold the person to this particular group often with fear convincing them that there is nowhere else to go, no one else has the truth like they do (www.letusreason.org/Cults1.htm)…To be continued.

Part 4 Free Masonry: Born Again

Posted on 28 October, 2013 at 12:57 Comments comments (3)
What is Free Masonry? A beautiful system of morality illustrated by symbols. Our world, our life is full of symbols. We just don’t know their meaning, and therefore we tend to ignore them. However, in spite of our ignorance, they still exist, making our life and our world worth living. Free Masonry is based on symbols. All the ceremonies from the 1st. Degree to the 3rd Degree are full of hidden and not so hidden symbols.   

Let us take for example, the ceremony of the 1st. Degree, the initiation all must take. The candidate enters the lodge blindfolded, dressed, or rather undressed, with a cable tow with a running noose around his neck. Holding him by the arm and the cable tow the junior warden guides him around the lodge.   

Upon reaching the altar the candidate must take a solemn obligation(oath & curses). He is then asked what his predominant wish is. He answers, “Light”. The chaplain recites the first verses from Genesis and the blindfold is removed enabling him to see the “Light”. I do not know why a social, and not a religious organization would need a chaplain, altar or quote scriptures, but it is used in Free Masonry.   

Symbolically the candidate enters the lodge, from the outer world and he is blind having a physical connection with the lodge or the “New World,” through the cable tow. The moment he takes upon himself the solemn obligation, there is no need for the physical connection, a stronger one, a moral connection, replaces it. The candidate is reborn in the new world of Masonry. The physical link, the cable tow, like an umbilical cord, is replaced by a moral obligation towards the Lodge. The physical link is replaced by love from the Lodge towards him.   

In the beginning of birth just like a newborn is connected to the mother by an umbilical cord, and when he sees the light, the cord is severed and replaced by love. This is how you are reborn in the new world, full of mysteries and symbols of Free Masonry. (The Cable Tow by Brother Bogdan Marin, taken from the Waterloo Masons Grand River Lodge#151)       

This ritual is the beginning of many symbolic, but meaningful spiritual beliefs in Free Masonry. However, where did they get the belief that you must be reborn? A baby is born every minute, but reborn is not a phase used liberally among people, unless you are a Christian or in a cult. The answer could be the influence of Mr. Hall’s limited understanding of the biblical scriptures. The word reborn, and light is used together in the bible to explain to Nicodemus and us, how one must enter into the Kingdom of God.   

Nicodemus was an educated and religious person. He was a Pharisee and a ruler of the Jews. Nicodemus followed the law and traditions he was taught. By the world’s standards Nicodemus was a good person. Nicodemus came to Jesus secretively to ask him questions about the Kingdom of God (John 3:1-2).  Nicodemus may have assumed because he was a good person he would go to heaven. However, Jesus said, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.” (John 3:3 KJV.)   

John 3:19-21 says, “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest that they are wrought in God.” In other words no man can be born again except by the Spirit of God. Jesus made it clear in John 3:6, “That which is born of the flesh is flesh (natural birth); and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit (spiritual rebirth or reborn). “   

The primary requirements for becoming a Mason is that a man must believe in the existence of a supreme being. Freemasonry requires a Mason to believe that there is but one God. This belief is commonly known as monotheism. Those who believe in the existence of a supreme being include Moslems (Islam), Hindus, Buddhists, and Wiccans (warlocks is male term for witches). All are eligible for membership in the Masonic Lodge, as they meet the Masonic requirement that they believe in the existence of a supreme being. Masons are admonished in ritual to hope for eternal life. The Hindu, Moslem, or Mormon Mason is encouraged to hope that he will go to heaven by their works, even though he does not have faith in the Biblical Christ.  (See John 14:6)   

In the 10th Degree (Elu of the Twelve) the candidate swears on the Holy Bible while taking his oath. Yet Masons do not allow the name of Jesus Christ to be spoken in their rituals, prayers, and scripture quotations. In  1973 March issue of the Maryland Master Mason Magazine, it states the following regulation concerning prayer in the Lodge: “All prayers in Mason lodges should be directed to the one deity to whom all Masons refer as the Grand Architect of the Universe…” When quoting scriptures any reference to the name of Jesus Christ, is omitted by Masons.   

Masonry claims to be a search for light. As a Mason who is seeking light, consider these words of Jesus: “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” (John 8:12) 

Jesus stated that He was the only way to God the Father. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)  

The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, by Manly Palmer Hall, explains Masonic teaching in a nutshell: 

The true Mason is not creed-bound. He realizes with the divine illumination of his lodge that as a Mason his religion must be universal: Christ, Buddha or Mohammed, the name means little, for he recognizes only the light and not the bearer. He worships at every shrine, bows before every altar, whether in temple, mosque, or cathedral, realizing with his truer understanding the oneness of all spiritual truth.   

The Masonic teaching that there have been many world saviors is also documented in the numerous editions of the monitor used by the Grand Lodge of Kentucky, The Kentucky Monitor. The passage discussing various religions and their saviors ends by mentioning the main character from the Master Mason ritual, Hiram Abiff: 

All believed in a future life, to be attained by purification and trials; in a state or successive states of reward and punishment; and in a Mediator or Redeemer, by whom the Evil Principle was to be overcome and the Supreme Deity reconciled to His creatures. The belief was general that He was to be born of a virgin and suffer a painful death. The Hindus called him Krishna; the Chinese, Kioun-tse; the Persians, Sosiosch; the Chaldeans, Dhouvanai; the Egyptians, Horus; Plato, Love; the Scandinavians, Balder; the Christians, Jesus; Masons, Hiram.           (pages XIV-XV) 

In the 13th Degree (Royal Arch of Solomon) you are bound not only from divulging information about Free Masonry, and worshipping a unknown God, but you are bound to the order of Free Masonry, “I am bound to the order forever, at the perils of my own life”, says the candidate. Now the candidate has transition from being cursed if they should reveal any information, to curse if they should leave Free Masonry. The combination of the oaths spoken and the feeling of entrapment could leave a toll on the physical and emotional state of the person, not to mention the spiritual aspect.   

A dear friend of mines, Anna, once confided in me that her father and mother had been involved in Masonry. Anna was child at the time of their involvement. However, she did remember that at certain times of the year, she was dressed in a white robe, along with other children for a particular ceremony. She knew her father was deeply involved in Masonry and her mother was also involved with the Eastern Star, the female branch. Although we didn’t make the connection then, I knew from Anna that her father committed suicide when she was still a child. Anna’s mother and brother committed suicide when she was a young lady. Anna has struggled with suicidal tendency most of her adult life, even as a Christian.   

This is a generational curse that has passed from one generation to another. There seems to be a higher level of suicides and depression among the families of those whose ancestors had been involved in the higher degrees of Free Masonry of family members I have ministered to. I wonder what the statistic for suicide would reveal about others whose ancestors were deeply involved in Masonry.   

If you are a Christian who is involved or has been involved in Free Masonry, I pray your eyes would be opened to the truth. Leaving the organization, and not paying your dues is just the beginning to your freedom and deliverance. One must repent of their involvement in this organization and revoke the curses you spoke over yourself and family.   

This is one of the reasons for writing articles on Free Masonry. To understand that there are consequences for curses pronounced over the candidate, and their family bloodline for breaking covenant, what Free Masons believe, and how one can be set free from Free Masonry oaths and curses…To be continued

Part 3: Master Mason (Acquiring godhood)

Posted on 8 October, 2013 at 14:23 Comments comments (2)
In the 3 Degree a candidate become a Master Mason. In this degree there is a ceremony that is very important from the Masonic perspective. Free Masons say they are not a religious organization, however they often quote, and twist the Holy Scriptures in their ceremonies, along with the use of other pagan beliefs.  

The basis for the ceremony of the 3 Degree is a representation of the history of the death of the Masonic Master Hiram Abiff. The Masonic believe that Hiram Abiff is the one mentioned as the King of Tyre and the architect hired by Solomon to help build the temple (1 Kings 5). In 1Kings 5:18 does say, “And Solomon’s builders and Hiram’s builders did hew them, and the stonesquares: so they prepared timber and stones to build the house.” The house is the temple of the Lord (1Kings 5:5). However King Hiram sent an architect to help build the temple of the Lord according to the scriptures, “And now I have sent a cunning man, endued with understanding, of Huram my father’s. The son of the daughters of Dan, and his father was a man of Tyre, skillful to work in gold, and in silver, in brass, in iron, in stone…. (1Chronicles 2:13-14)”   

According to the Masonic version, and not the scriptures, Hiram was brutally tortured by three vile workers because he refused to reveal the secret name of God. He was struck on the head with a wooden mallet, which is also called a Masonry hammer, leading to his death.   

During the ceremony into the 3 Degree an oath is taken once again, which is with every degree. “…Of having my body cut in two, my bowels torn out and burned to ashes, the ashes scattered to the four winds of the earth so there will be no more remembrance of such a vile wretch.”   

“Every Mason knows that a broken vow brings with it a terrible penalty…When a Mason swears that he will devote his life to (Masonry)… and then defiles his living temple…he is breaking a vow which imposes not hours but ages of misery.” [1] Manly Hall
 
During the ceremony the candidate is symbolically struck on the forehead and is laid on the floor of the lodge. This act simulates the death of Hiram.
 
The story of Hiram continues with his remains mysteriously disappears. When his body is finally found after several days, various attempts are made to resuscitate him. First the apprentice tries raising him by one hand, but he slips and is unsuccessful. Then a companion tries, but the same results happen. Finally, a more expert worker tries, supporting the body strongly using his right hand. Hiram comes to life, after touching him in the five key points of companionship.
 
The Masonic Rite says, while simulating a resurrection of the new member, “Hand with hand, I greet you as a brother; feet with feet I will sustain you in your praiseworthy commitments; knee to knee, the pose of my daily supplications, I will remember your desires; chest to chest when you trust me with a secret, I will keep it as if it were my own and hand upon back, I will protect your honor in your absence and in your presence.”  The candidate is now considered a Master Mason.
 
Manly Hall (1901-1990) was a 33 Degree Mason (Scottish Rite), which is the highest degree in Masonry. He was one of the Fathers of Masonry whose beliefs and books greatly influenced Free Masonry.  In his earlier years he was a pastor of The People Church. Later his curiosity got the better of him. Manly was involved in Greek and Egyptian mythology, mysticism, and sorcery which has greatly influences Free Masonry’s beliefs and rituals. Manly Hall was murdered and his death was unsolved. He was eighty-nine years old at the time of his death.
 
He stated, “The Master Mason embodies the power of the human mind…His spiritual light is greater because he has evolved a higher vehicle for its expression… For him the Heavens have opened and the Great Light has bathed him in its radiance… The voice speaks from the Heavens, its power thrilling the Master until his own being seems filled with its divinity, saying, “This is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased…” The master Mason is in Truth a sun, a great reflector of light… He, in truth has become the spokesman of the Most High… Through him passes Hydra, the great snake and from it’s mouth there pours to man the light of God.” [1]
 
Let’s stop here for a moment and contemplate on what was just quoted by Manly Hall. The bible states, “And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased (Mathew 3:16-17). “ King James Version
 
Mr. Hall describes the 3 Degree Mason as equal to Jesus Christ the Son of God.  Some other quotes by Mr. Hall are, “Man is a god in the making who eventually receives…godhood.” And, “The birth of the Christ within which can be achieved by Masonic effort.”[2]
 
According to Free Masonry, they are not a religious organization, then why the scriptures or references to the Godhead? Most Christians can draw a correct assumption about Free Masonry based solely on Mr. Hall’s statements. But, for those who need more evidence lets continue. The Godhead consist of God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son of God, and last but not least the Holy Spirit. These three make up the Godhead or Trinity. Man, whether a Mason or a Christian— does not.
 
The born again experience cannot occur through Masonic achievement, penitence, religion or any other futile attempts by man, but only by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit after receiving Jesus Christ as your Savior.
 
Hall also says “Through him (Master Mason of 3 Degree) passes Hydra, the great snake and from it’s mouth there pours to man the light of God.”  In Greek mythology, the Hydra was a giant water snake with many heads, one of the heads being immortal. Heracles in Greek mythology destroyed this monster as one of his twelve feats. So now we have Christianity and Mythology combined in this complex, secretive and yet popular organization.
 
Manly Hall as a 33 Degree Mason knew exactly who and what Masons worship because by this level it is revealed to them whom the Great Architect of the Universe is that they are worshipping.
 
A friend, I’ll call Betty, informed me that her husband Bill joined Free Masons years ago, and achieve 1.Degree. After taking his vows and oath curses he seemed hesitant about joining. Shortly afterwards he was asked to clean a certain room and warned not to divulge what was behind the closed door, ever. He reluctantly went into the room as ordered. A short time later Bill ran out of that room frightened. He continued running right out of the building, and never looked back. To this day he refuses to tell anyone including Betty what he saw.
 
However, throughout the years Bill was troubled and had a wandering, vagabond spirit. He would leave home for months, even years before returning home to his waiting wife. Although Bill fled Free Masonry he couldn’t flee the curses of breaking covenant. He and his family are still suffering from the consequences of self -imposed curses spoken years ago in an organization Bill knew little about…To be continued

Freemasonry Club or Cult? Part 2

Posted on 27 September, 2013 at 15:13 Comments comments (1)
Hail, Conceal, and never Reveal   

The following is the oath taken in the 1. degree Entered Apprentice. This is the oath everyone takes to join the Free Masonry. Pay close attention to the curses pronounced over them as they take this oath.  

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

If this doesn’t put fear into the person then perhaps the ritual aspect of being blindfolded, a rope (noose) placed around their neck, and a spear or sword across their chest will. The purpose of the ritual along with the verbal curses is to have a lasting mental and emotional impact on the individual. In each level or degree there are curses spoken by the new member, and usually some form of ritual.   

In the 2 Degree Fellow Craft the oath is “…having my left breast torn open, my heart and vitals taken from thence and thrown over my left shoulder and carried to the valley of Jehosaphat.” The result of these curses can bring premature death due to the heart and lungs, as well as chest and circulatory problems.   

Remember this member may be your father, grandfather, or great grandfather. They may be looking at the benefits of joining this organization but they are not looking at the consequences of curses spoken over them and their family, as you will see.                                                                                              

The scriptures says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” Proverbs 18:21 R.A. Vukovich in her book “Redeemed from the curse” states, “The main channel that blessings, and curses are transmitted is by words. Those words can be spoken, written, or merely dwelt upon.” 

“Proverb 23:7 says, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…” This verse is usually mentioned in reference that you are a product of your thinking; you become what you think. However, you can also become what you speak or what is spoken over you. 

These men who enter into Free Masonry are entering into a pact. This pact is not with God as some would believe, neither is it with man. This pact is with spiritual entities that do not play according to your rules. In order to become a member you must sign a covenant with your blood. The member has now entered into a blood covenant. 

A blood covenant means that two covenant individuals share such a close relationship with each other that all they possess in this life is available to each other upon demand. A blood covenant is not just between you and the other party but includes your family bloodline. Another words, this means those ancestors who made a blood covenant and swore curses over themselves also included you, and your children from generation to generations in that oath.  If a covenant is broken, the punishment is severe. An example of this is in Deut. 28:15-68. God explains what will happen to you if you break covenant. That is why there are blessings for keeping covenant and curses for breaking covenant. 

This first rite curses affects the eyesight, and emotions, fear of darkness, confusion and fear of light and noises. The fear of death and fear of being stabbed and heart attacks caused by the sword or spear held over the chest.   

Other curses related to this degree include allergies, asthma, glandular problems, speechlessness, and having no voice, death, and division in the family. Infirmities includes; physical weakness (especially in older people), knees and hips of women and infirmities of the uterus.   

I am not speaking about one or two symptoms, which can be contributed to numerous things. I am speaking of a combination of these symptoms operating in your life or family members. Do you or anyone in your family have several of these symptoms, and can trace your ancestral bloodline to Free Masonry?  

I know a Christian lady who does home care. One of her clients is an elderly lady who is tormented daily with a fear of the dark and of “Them” coming to take her away. The caregiver would pray for this woman constantly, but couldn’t understand why she was in such fear and spiritual torment. One day we spoke with her about Free Masonry, she informed me that her client was very high up in the Eastern Star (Women’s branch of Free Masonry}. Now the caregiver understood that certain curses spoken over her client were now tormenting her mind and soul. It is not that this poor soul divulged any information about the organization, but the higher the degree the more that is required of you.   

Remember, covenant occurs in the initiation of the first degree. So even it you or your ancestors got out after just the first degree, you are still under the blood covenant…To be continued       

Freemasonry: Club or Cult?

Posted on 16 September, 2013 at 19:08 Comments comments (0)
Deuteronomy 6:4-5, “Hear, O Israel; the Lord is our God, the Lord alone. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” (RSV)   
I have used numerous books and websites, along with information obtained from the Jonathan House Ministry, out of Rochester, Mn. I will let you decide whether Freemasonry is a club or cult. My desire is that you will understand what Freemasonry believes, and how this has a detrimental affect on families whose family members and ancestors have been involved in this organization.    

One of the books I have researched from is titled, “ The Dark Secrets of GAOTU” by Dr. Ana Mendez-Ferrell. The letters in the title come from Freemasonry. They believe that GAOTU is the True god. It stands for “The Great Architect of the Universe.” In my studies I have also come across “GTGAOTU” which stands for, “Glory to the Great Architect of the Universe.”   As a Christian we wouldn’t think much of this, since we believe that Almighty God is the creator of the universe. However, “GAOTU” The Great Architect is not the same God, but has its origin in Egyptian paganism. We will take a closer look into this later.   

Freemasonry is the most wide spread secret society in the world. It’s a fraternal organization that arose from obscure origins in the late 16th to early 17th century.   There are fifty-one Grand Lodges in the United States, one for each state and Washington D.C. Each Grand Lodge is the governing authority for Freemasonry in a given jurisdiction and all Blue Lodges in the jurisdiction report to The Grand Lodge.   

This shows how rapidly this organization has grown and spread in our country and is still growing. However, most men who join are not aware of what their beliefs our and the consequence of divulging or leaving the organization, nor the word curses pronounced upon themselves and their families.   

The first degree is called Enter Apprentice. The second degree is called Fellow Craft and the third is called Master Mason. Most men only go to the third degree, but if they choose, they may advance either through the York Rite or the Scottish Rite. The Scottish Rite has thirty additional degrees. In each degree the mason pledges himself to a different Egyptian deity.   

Exodus 20:1-5 states, “ Then God spoke all these words: I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery, you shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make of yourself an idol whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath or that is in the water under the earth.” (RSV)   

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

Many people question why as Christians, are we so against Freemasonry? Don’t they and the Shiriners, who I will get to later, do all kinds of good work? I believe that you will have a better understanding if I go over what some of their past and present leaders have stated, and why they do the good works they do.   

“It is a lamentable fat that the great mass of our membership are…densely ignorant of everything connected with masonry.” Rollin C. Blackmer   

“It is important to strip from all religions their orthodox tenets, legends, allegories and dogmas.” Henry Clausen   

“The prevailing Masonic opinion is that the Bible is only a symbol of divine will, law, or revelation and not that its contents are divine law, inspired or revealed.” Henry Coil   

“ When our rituals and monitors tell us the Bible is one of the great lights of Masonry and that, as such, it is the rule and guide to our faith, it can only be speaking symbolically as it certainly is when speaking of the other two great lights, the square and the compass.” Silas H. Shepherd   

You can begin to see from the quotes of these Masonic leaders what their view of the bible is and what Freemasonry is not. Unfortunately, what new members all have in common is that they join without knowing the true aim of Freemasonry and are totally blinded to the spiritual powers that rule over it. Whether we admit it or not, there are spiritual forces at work. Though we may not take them into account, or even deny their existence, it doesn’t prevent them from having an influence over our lives. In many cases these forces drag their naïve victims into the depths of depression, to insanity and even unto death. To be continued…
