Masonry and the English Throne

Queen Elizabeth II is Britain’s longest-reigning monarch. Elizabeth, now aged 93, is also the kingdom’s oldest ever monarch.

She is the 40th monarch in a royal line that traces its origin back to Norman King William the Bastard who claimed the throne with victory over Anglo-Saxon Harold II at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

Since becoming Queen, Elizabeth II has seen 13 prime ministers, starting with Winston Churchill, 14 U.S. Presidents, from Harry Truman to Donald Trump, and every of Nigeria’s Head-of-State since Independence in 1960.

Officially, the Queen is a member of the Church of England. Under British law, as reigning monarch, she is the Supreme Governor of the Church of England. All members of the British royal family are officially affiliated with the Anglican Church.

Yet, not one of them has been known to testify to the atoning power of the blood of Jesus Christ. Instead, they have been known to be Pantheists, Gnostics and Masons.

Queen Elizabeth’s father, Prince Philip, was a Mason. Her father, King George VI was a Master Mason. The same for King Edward VII.

The Queen and her son, Prince Charles, also belong to the highest ranks of Masons in the world through the Order of the Garter. The Queen was installed as a “lady” of the Order of the Garter on April 23, 1948 (her birthday) while still a princess.

When she became queen, she became the sovereign of the Order. On July 26, 1958, Prince Charles became a knight of the Order.

The Most Noble Order of the Garter is the most prestigious “chivalric” order in the British Isles. It’s said to be an order of “Christian Knighthood” (which is an oxymoron) established by King Edward III and his son, Edward the “Black Prince” in 1348, few years after the fall of the powerful Knights Templar. [1]

The Order remains one of the most elite societies in Europe and it appears to be at pinnacle of English-speaking Freemasonry, if not all Masonry 

The legend behind the Order’s founding has it that King Edward III was dancing with the young countess of Salisbury (Joan of Kent) in the presence of his court in Calais, France in 1347. Suddenly, the lady dropped her garter in the middle of the dance. The incident shocked the court and all the dancing ceased.

Edward gallantly knelt down, picked up her garter and tied it around his own knee. Then he uttered the famous words: “Honi soit qui mal y pense”, which means, “Shame be to him who thinks evil of it”. In honour of the occasion, the King founded the Order with 26 knights (13 x 2) and his words became its motto. [2]

Of course, seeing ladies’ undergarments couldn’t have been shocking in 14th century England, but the garter was (and still is) the symbol of a witch high priestess. [3]

In the Craft, when a high priestess becomes a “witch queen”, i.e. when her coven of witches splits off a daughter coven with its own priestess, she acquires a silver, crescent moon-shaped buckle on her garter. With a subsequent coven created, a new buckle is added. [4]

Ostensibly, Edward was dancing with a witch queen and dropping her garter which identified her with the pagan religion of witchcraft in a nominally Christian court could have warranted her arrest. Hence, Edward gave the lady and her religion his blessing. He may have meant, “Shame be to him who thinks evil of witchcraft.” 

Edward’s choice of two groups of 13 knights is the key to this odd puzzle. In witchcraft traditions, 13 is the size of a coven and the number of moon feasts (esbats) in a given year. 

As the head of the Order of the Garter, the Queen of England and her son, Prince Charles are edged with two rows of 168 miniature gold buckles, (exactly like the horseshoe shaped buckles on a witch queen’s garter) plus one which is worn on his or her leg. This equals 169 (13 x 13!)

This essentially shows through occult symbolism that the British sovereign (in this case, Queen Elizabeth) is a Witch Queen or King. [5]

Another angle to this occult numerology is the fact that Charles is the thirteenth Prince of Wales to be invested into the order. There we have it again: the number 13.

It has been pointed out that the royal wedding between Prince Charles and Princess Diana was held at a period known as Lammastide in Paganism. Lammastide (from late July to early August) is traditionally believed to be a time for witch weddings.

This is hardly coincidental. It’s also possible that Diana herself may have been a pawn in the diabolical royal chess game.

Many multi-generational occultists raise their children with no knowledge of their dark heritage, and then covertly arrange marriages with other families possessing carefully guarded bloodlines. 

Dr. Gregory Reid, a retired private investigator on occult crimes (and a Satanic ritual abuse survivor) aptly notes this:

Generational occultists, like the ones some refer to as ‘illuminati’ or ‘luciferians’ (which I think is a more accurate term) go back over some centuries and make sure the ‘line’ of occult power that has been worked up over the years passes into the next generation. ‘Old money’ is kind of what you would expect – families that go back generations and get their power and prestige and position and political placement from wealth that was gotten long ago and continues to amass – for example, the Rockefellers, Kennedys, the Getty’s. Not saying they were involved in the occult, and not saying they weren’t, but the most powerful occult families are wealthy and very, very old. [6]

Princess Diana’s death has trappings of a ritual murder. The place where her accident occurred must have been especially chosen. It took place in a tunnel called Pont d’Alma meaning “bridge of the soul.” The place on which the Pont d’Alma is built is an ancient, pagan sacrificial site – sacred to the moon goddess (Diana).

Right above the Alma tunnel is a replica of the torch from the Statue of Liberty in the U.S. (a Masonic image of Isis sculpted by Bartholdi, a French Freemason). The torch it carries actually symbolizes the “light” of Lucifer.

It was also reported that the Mercedes carrying Diana smashed into not just any pillar within the Alma tunnel, but the 13th pillar! Thirteen is very significant, both in Masonry and witchcraft as I mentioned.

In the course of supposedly trying to save Diana’s life after the torturously slow ride to the hospital (it took all of forty minutes to travel 3.8 miles), to work on and massage her heart, her chest was cut open from collarbone to navel. [7]

This is the penalty of breaking the laws of second degree in Masonry, to have your chest ripped open and your heart taken out. A part of the oath of passing by the fellow craft says:

I further solemnly pledge myself to act as a true and faithful Craftsman answer Signs, obey summonses and main­tain the principles inculcated in the former degree. These several Points I solemnly swear to observe, without evasion, equivo­cation, or mental reservation of any kind, under no less a penalty, on the violation of any of them, than that of having my left breast laid open, my heart torn there from and given to the ravenous birds of the air or devouring. beasts of the field as prey. [8]

The occult currents flowing in the royal family can be seen in the commitment of Prince Charles, and his son, Prince Harry, to New Age philosophy. In his speech to youths during this year’s WE day, Harry reiterated core New Age beliefs:

Every forest, every river, every ocean, every coastline, every insect, every wild animal. Every blade of grass, every ray of sun and every rain drop is crucial to our survival. It is all connected, we are all inter-connected.”

He capped his speech with the words: “Change your thoughts and change the world.” This is the same nostrum hawked by every New Ager. Masonry, Witchcraft and New Age paganism may be distinct, but they are all plugged to the transformer of the lord of darkness.

This is not written to evoke an Illuminati hysteria, it’s intended to call our attention to the influence of Masonry on nations with historic Christian ties, and the necessity for prayers for world leaders to truly know Jesus Christ and be saved.

The Watchtower Mind Tricks

In a bid to uphold their false doctrine about the afterlife, the Watchtower Society resorts to various tactics to validate its position.

1. Deliberate mistranslation

In their New World Translation, they swallowed a camel in a bid to sustain their annihilation belief.

Matthew 27:50. “Again Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and yielded up his breath (NWT).

Luke 23:46. “And Jesus called with a loud voice and said: Father, into your hands I entrust my spirit (NWT).

These are parallel passages describing the same event: the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. In Matthew’s account, ‘the Society’ had no difficulty substituting the word “breath” for the Greek “spirit” (pneuma), whereas based on the context and grammar, there’s no justification for such a replacement.

Jesus yielded up His spirit, not His “breath.” JWs forced the word “breath” into the Matthew text in order to cement their doctrine; it’s a Jedi mind to condition the Witness’ mind.

When they arrived at the passage in Luke, the JW translators too realized that their messy cat would be easily let out of the bag if they rendered it: “Father, into your hands I entrust my breath,” so they used the correct rendering “spirit” instead.

But the very fact that Christ dismissed His spirit proves the survival of the human spirit beyond the grave, or as Solomon so wisely put it: “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it” (Eccl. 12:7).

Let me give another example.

Philippians 1:21–23. “For in my case to live is Christ, and to die, gain. Now if it be to live on in the flesh, this is a fruitage of my work—and yet which thing to select I do not know. I am under pressure from these two things; but what I do desire is the releasing and the being with Christ, for this, to be sure, is far better” (NWT).

Notice how the word “departing” was replaced with “releasing.” In their appendix to the New World Translation of the Christian Greek Scriptures (pp. 780-781), they wrote:

“In no way is the apostle here saying that immediately at his death he would be changed into spirit and would be with Christ forever … It is to this return of Christ and the apostle’s releasing to be always with the Lord that Paul refers at Philippians 1:23 … It must refer to the events at the time of Christ’s return and second presence…”

First of all, no reputable lexical work defines the Greek word analousai as “releasing.” The passage grates against their cherished belief, so they twist the text to conform to it.

Second, what apostle Paul is saying in Philippians 1 centers on his possible death and subsequent presence with the Lord (2 Cor. 5:8), and also his concern toward the believers in Philippi. The coming of Christ is not the subject of discussion at all.

Paul never believed he would “sleep” in the grave till the resurrection because he clearly states he could either be with Christ after death or continue in the body to minister to the people. He described death as “gain.” There would be no gain in dying if men became non-existent after death. God is not the God of the dead or the non-existent (Mark 12:27).

Now, by denying that apostle Paul “would be changed into spirit and would be with Christ forever,” the Watchtower is also indirectly implying that he is not part of the 144,000 “anointed class.”

Why God would bypass Paul the apostle who “laboured more strenuously than all the rest” for the Gospel (1 Cor. 15:10) and was “poured out as a drink offering” as a martyr (Phil. 2:17), and consign him to the “great crowd” is a fatal contradiction that Jehovah’s Witnesses will have to explain.

2. Misquoting sources

In Reasoning from the Scriptures (pp. 169-170), a quote is offered from Encyclopedia Britannica (vol XXV, 236) to disprove the soul’s immortality. The part appearing in bold was intentionally omitted:

“In the NT, the Greek word psyche is often translated as “soul” but again should not be readily understood to have the meaning the word had for the Greek philosophers. It usually means “life” or “vitality,” or at times “the self.” While most Christians believe in a life after death, the Bible does not provide a clear description of how a person survives after death. Christian theologians have had to resort to the discourse of philosophers for an adequate means of describing survival of the individual after death, and philosophers have traditionally utilised the concept of the soul as the vehicle of immortality.”

3. Poisoning the well

They always link the Christian doctrine of the afterlife with paganism by misquoting their sources or utilizing the biased works of other annihilationists.

They also project a very negative image of pastors or Christian Bible teachers as ‘servants of Satan.’ This is a preemptive tactic deployed to seal the minds of JWs to whatever their opponents say.

The Bible’s teaching about the condition of the dead leaves many of Christendom’s clergymen in an awkward position. The very book on which they claim to base their teachings, the Bible conflicts with their doctrines. Yet, consciously or unconsciously, they feel impelled to reach into the Bible to seize on something to prove their point, thereby blinding themselves and others to the truth” (Is this Life All There Is? 1974, 98, 99).

They continue:

The ‘burning anger of Jehovah’ is against all who have misled their fellowmen by lying about God and his purposes. And he does not hold guiltless those who support such men by attending their religious services or being members of their organizations. The time left before the execution of divine judgement is short…you need to act quickly…to break all ties with the world empire of false religion.” (Ibid p. 187)

The scare-mongering and the appeal to isolation in these quotes are obvious. The amusing thing is that, on the one hand, JWs are told to quickly cut all ties with all churches, yet the JW who wrote this claims to know what church clergymen might say or do “consciously or unconsciously.” How did he know them?

Such a screeching rhetoric is aimed at preventing JWs from reading any reputable Christian work exposing the lies of the Watchtower Society. A renowned cult expert provides some interesting insights:

“First and foremost, the belief systems of the cults are characterized by closed-mindedness. They are not interested in a rational cognitive evaluation of facts. The organizational structure interprets the facts to the cultist, generally invoking the Bible and/or its respective founder as the ultimate source of its pronouncements … Secondly, cultic beliefs are characterized by genuine antagonism on a personal level since the cultist almost always identifies his dislike of the Christian message with the messenger who holds such opposing beliefs” (Walter Martin and Hank Hanegraaff, The Kingdom of the Cults, revised edition Bethany House, 1997, p. 33).

4. Comma shifting

Luke 23:43 “And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.”

Here, Jesus was promising the pernitent thief that he would be with Him in paradise that very day. This is another proof of the immortality of the inner man and an eternal destination. This would torpedo the JW annihilation doctrine, so they shifted the comma to after the word “today” in their New World Translation (NWT) bible to read as:

“Truly I tell you today, You will be with me in Paradise”

To defend this spurious translation, they argue that:

“Westcott and Hort text put a comma in the Greek text before the word today… in the original Greek, no comma is found” (Kingdom Interlinear Translation, 1969, 408).

The fact is, the punctuation in English is determined by the context of the passage. The NWT has no scholarly support for this mis-punctuation. This is why all Bible versions (with the exception of the NWT) renders the comma after “you” and not “today.”

Greek scholars are in agreement. Dr Randolph Yaeger in his work, The Renaissance New Testament translates Luke 23:43 as:

“Therefore He said to him, truly I am telling you, Today you shall be with me in paradise.”

Greek scholar, Kenneth Wuest renders it:

“And He said to him, Assuredly I to you am saying, Today you will be with me in paradise” (The New Testament- An Expanded Translation, Grand Rapids, MI, 1961, 203).

As stated elsewhere, these are the tactics employed when a religious organization is bereft of truth.

Dr. Ron Rhodes explains why the JWs had to tamper with this Bible text:

“It is helpful to observe how the phrase, ‘Truly, I say unto you’ is used elsewhere in Scripture. The phrase – which translates the Greek word amen soi lego – occurs 74 times in the Gospels and is always used as an introductory expression …

“In 73 out of 74 times the phrase occurs in the Gospels, the New World Translation places a break – such as a comma – immediately after the phrase, ‘Truly I tell you’. Luke 23:43 is the only occurrence of the phrase in which the New World Translation does not place a break after it. Why? … this would go against Watchtower theology” (Reasoning from The Scriptures with the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Harvest House, 1993, 328).
