Since the day I published Freemasonry: A Critical Look on Facebook, my page has been spammed by several Illuminati recruiters (more like scammers) appealing to people to join the Illuminati brotherhood with promises of great wealth and power.
I’ve also received several feedback from guys asking how they can join Masonry. Apparently, many of them at a first glance, thought the article was pro-Masonry. They didn’t bother reading it entirely before asking me how to join.
The following exchange is an example. The young guy (I’d call him Shaka), from South Africa, persistently messaged me to tell him how he could become a part of the Order of DeMolay. His words appear in blue.
To join Masonry I must be at least 21 of age?
I need to ask, why are you so obsessed with Masonry? Are you a Christian?
Yes I’m a Christian I was raised that way. But since I’m old now I’d love to join Masonry.
Why do you wish to join Masonry? Have you been saved by repentance and faith in Jesus Christ? Are you filled with the Holy Spirit? Do you study the Word of God or you’re experiencing a crisis in your Christian walk?
I ask these questions because there are many people who were raised Christian but have never had a personal relationship with God. They only follow the forms and liturgy of a denomination but have never experienced the life transforming power of the Holy Spirit.
There’s no way you would have a sound relationship with God, an understanding of Christian doctrine and live in the practical reality of the Faith and want to join Masonry.
I’d love to join masonry for empowerment, to uplift my life, and to live a better life. Also I’d love to learn about all the rituals and spells they perform for their goals/aim. We aIl love God, but sometimes I feel like, I need to do better than what I know.
What manner of “empowerment” do you seek in Masonry that you can’t find in Christ Jesus?
What “upliftment” do you desire other than the one that God the Father has given us, raising us up to sit in heavenly places above all principalities and powers? (Eph. 2:6).
What “better life” do you seek outside the forgiveness and eternal life offered by Jesus? (Jn. 5:24)
Why would any child of God be fascinated by occult spells and rituals which God has clearly denounced in His Word? (Deut. 18:19-12; Gal. 5:19-21). That was why I asked you those questions to probe where you stand and your answers were revealing.
You can’t know God as a Christian, and follow the way of Christ and want to learn “the ways of the heathen.” It’s like professing faith in the Lamb while pledging allegiance to the dragon.
If you have the Spirit of God living in you, your life will show forth the fruit of that relationship and you won’t be wondering what you need to be doing, because we don’t need any rite, any spell, any cult or esoteric teachings to reveal to us what we are to do in pleasing God.
Through the blood of Christ, we have peace with God (Romans 5:1) and there’s no religion or philosophy in this world that offers such peace. Jesus is the only way, truth and life.
Again, do you know the real identity of the god worshipped in Masonry? I will provide some quotes for you. Albert Mackey, one of the “modern” fathers of Masonry said:
“Be assured … that God is equally present with the pious Hindu in the temple, the Jew in the synagogue, the Mohammedan in the mosque, and the Christian in the church.” (Mackey, Albert, Mackey’s Revised Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, pp. 409-410).
This is a theological framework that accommodates all kinds of gods and lords in a syncretic adoration. Henry W. Coil, the most highly regarded Masonic scholar states:
“The Masonic test is a Supreme Being and any qualification added is an innovation… Monotheism has been espoused as the sole religious dogma of Freemasonry by some authors …This obviously violates Masonic principles, for it requires belief in a specific kind of supreme deity.” (Coil, Henry Wilson, Coil’s Masonic Encyclopedia, pp. 516-517).
In other words, believing in the one true God is a violation of Masonic principles. A Jewish or Christian Mason cannot tell a satanist that he couldn’t be a Mason because his supreme being, the devil, is not the real God. That violates “Masonic principles.” But what does the Bible say? See Exodus 20:1-2; Isaiah 46:9, Isaiah 45:5; Jeremiah 1:16; 1Cor. 8:5.
The same Coli wrote:
“Men have to decide whether they want a god like the ancient Hebrew Jahweh, a partisan, tribal god, with whom they can talk and argue and from whom they can hide, if necessary, or a boundless, eternal, universal undenominational and international, divine spirit, so vastly removed from the speck called man that he cannot be known. So soon as man begins to laud his god and endow him with the most perfect human attributes such as justice, mercy, beneficence, etc., the divine essence is depreciated and despoiled.” (pp. 516-517).
In plain terms, the actual “God” of Masonry is one that is unknown, one that embraces all deities, but rejects the God of the Bible as partisan and provincial. This is also the impersonal, universal god force of Gnostics and New Agers.
Under the Royal Arch degree (York Rite), a secret mystical word which is said to be the secret name of the god of Freemasonry is revealed to initiates as JAH-BUL-ON.
The High Priest of the Royal Arch says that this is “the divine Logos”, or “Word” referred to in John 1:1-5. This odd name is so “sacred” that it can only be revealed to the Mason in the presence of three Royal Arch Masons while kneeling under a “Royal Arch” formed by their intertwined hands!
But here’s a break down:
JAH (the first syllable) represents the name Yahweh or Jehovah, the name of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This name appears in the use of the word, Hallelujah, which means “Praise Jah!”
BUL (the second syllable) represents the name Ba’al or Bel. This is the name of the fertility god worshipped with licencious rites and human sacrifice all through the ancient Near East. Baal was the god of Jezebel and Ahab, perhaps the most wicked couple ever to sit on the throne of Israel (I Kings 16:29-33).
ON (the third syllable) represents the name of the Egyptian sun god, Osiris. It is the name of his sacred city, Heliopolis, (city of the sun in Greek) in Egypt (Genesis 41:45, 50).
Here we have a chimeric deity. A deliberately conjured blasphemous trinity. Why a Christian would want to worship a false god because of power, ambition or wisdom beats me unless, he has rejected God to bow to the desires of the god of the world.
Again, In the degree of the Knights of East and West in the Scottish Rite, there is also a “Sacred Word” in the 17° as well. This name is Abaddon (Blanchard, J., Scottish Rite Masonry Illustrated, The Complete Ritual, Ezra Cook Publications, Chicago, 1974, pp. 453-457)
A quick trip to the New Testament will reveal that, according to God’s Word, there is nothing sacred about the name Abaddon. In Revelation 9:11, we are told:
“They [demonic creatures from the abyss] had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek is Apollyon.”
This demon is invoked in satanic rites for destruction, occult warfare and death. Masonry is demon worship. It’s a destructive group. Finally, here is what Albert Pike said:
“Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual or selfish Souls? Doubt it not! for traditions are full of Divine Revelations and Inspirations: and Inspiration is not of one Age nor one Creed” (Morals and Dogma, p. 321).
If this is what you want to get yourself into after following Jesus, then I must plead with you, flee for your own eternal safety back to the loving arms of the Lord Jesus.
I used to love Jezebel or Lilith…
Let’s see. Jezebel was a tyrant who corrupted her husband, as well as the nation, by promoting pagan worship. Such a wicked idolatrous queen has no appeal to a Christian.
Lilith is also a female demon worshipped in Witchcraft and regarded as the “patroness” of infant destruction, female domination and sexual liberation. Why you would hold these up as figures of endearment reinforces my suspicions about your background.
I believe in man power and free will, I hate being controlled. I believe im my own king!
What do you mean by “man power”? The two female figures you mentioned earlier are icons of female domination and control, so maybe if you can answer the series of questions I asked at the onset, I can figure out whether you’ve ever served King Jesus or you have always followed “king self.”
And no I dont want to be a satanist, I know many and all of them are poor.
That’s interesting, given that Masonry itself is Luciferian. It’s quite revealing too, that the only reason you reject classical Satanism is because many satanists are poor.
Only Masonry are rich, and in control.
Name them. And I will tell you how these Masons are (or were) not in control. Seems you have been fed with the Illuminati “world control” propaganda.
I love jesus Christ but why ain’t we like Abraham?
Because Christians are followers of Christ. We become partakers of the blessings of Abraham through Christ (Gal. 3:14). The physical outworking of these blessings will depend on God’s will for our lives.
Besides, Abraham was tested to yield up the most important thing God promised him: Isaac. What have you yielded up for God?
Is it a good thing for a Christian to be poor and suffer so that we can get to heaven?
Poverty and suffering are not conditions of getting to heaven and I wonder where you got such misinformation from.
I believe God is God of wonders, but sometimes I get tired. I hate being poor and useless.
It depends on which God you have in mind. The God of the Bible is indeed a God of wonders, but He’s also sovereign. He cannot be “forced” or manipulated to do wonders to satiate man’s endless wants. Those who appear to control and compel a god to do their bidding are using demons.
Jesus said: “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matt. 6:33).
That’s the way God has arranged it. First, you become a part of His kingdom, then you seek His righteousness, then you are qualified to receive His packages. He doesn’t organize royal banquets for monsters. They first have to be transformed.
The war between God and satan doesnt involve us! But look who are suffering? It’s us!
The cosmos is not a chess game between God and Satan. That is the error of dualism. God created all things, including Lucifer/Satan, and all powers belong to God. Satan was defeated 2,000 years ago by Jesus Christ at Calvary.
Although Jesus didn’t promise us a free ride, we are victorious in Him. “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (Jn. 16:33).
And the 10 commandments are hard to follow.
Well, try Satan’s commandments then! The Christian ethic is actually more than the 10 commandments. “This command I am giving you today is not too difficult for you, and it is not beyond your reach.” (Deut. 30:11).
That was what God told the children of Israel, yet we as Christians having the Holy Spirit are in a better position.
Gold and silver is of god. But do we have one? No! Is it a good thing for men to be poor? Earth was given to us, and we are the sons of god just like jesus. Where is our treasure then? In heaven? I dont think so.
This topic of material wealth and the believer demands a separate topic. It’s not something that can be capsulated in sound bytes and short replies. Please read this
I love and believe in Jesus, i wish he can give me what he promised to give me.
There’s a difference between what you think God owes you and what God has really promised to you. The statements you have made previously border on the former. But note this: God doesn’t revolve around us, we revolve around Him.
When I started this blog in 2014, I had nothing. I was poor, unemployed, unhappy and in despair that my post graduate program might not come out good. I remember once telling God to give me a solid reason to live, perhaps I would find the strength to live by it.
But I look back today and I’m grateful that even when I had no friend, no earthly helper, no money and no hope, God changed my story. And He did these while I was standing for Him.
I didn’t demand God blessed me before I served Him in any capacity. The Bible itself furnishes us with many examples of godly men who stood even in the face of death, persecution, apostasy and hardship. Seek first His kingdom, not rituals, not spells, not cult groups.
If i knew the rituals of wealth i would have performed them by now. Ohh and i know about the other gods.
But here you are seeking Masonic rituals for “empowerment” and “uplifting.” If Jesus had bowed and worshipped Satan in exchange for the goods things of this world, where will we be today?
If they are really fake. Then where do they get the power from?
And why didn’t jesus send them straight to hell?
Because there is an appointed time for their punishment. God doesn’t send people straight to hell immediately they sin because of His justice, mercy and love.
Some people who are currently in Satan’s service will come to know Christ before it’s too late while some will leave the Christian fold and align themselves with Satan. It’s not over until it’s over.
The DeMolay. What do they really do, and what are the out come/ benefit of being with them?
In answer to your question, I will quote a portion of a book by William Schnoebelen, an ex-32° degree Mason. It’s titled, Masonry Beyond the Light. This is taken from chapter 10, “Kindergartens for Satanism”:
“There is one youth order which stands out above the others in terms of its audacious embrace of evil. That is the DeMolay order for boys. Though all the youth orders share the dangers mentioned above, DeMolays are especially dangerous because they serve as the incubator for future Masons.
Although I never was in the DeMolays, I have a dear friend and colleague in the ministry who was, but is now saved by Jesus. From his personal experience as a member, he has referred to the DeMolays as a “kindergarten for Satanism.”
He believes it was a major stepping stone for him into occultism and witchcraft. It is an especially grisly jest to name the Masonic order for young men after Jacques DeMolay, the last Grand Master of the Templars.
The DeMolay ritual makes a great hero of its namesake. He is held up as a paragon of manly loyalty and virtue. What the order’s ritual does not tell its young charges is that DeMolay was burned at the stake for being a homosexual, a pedophile (lover of young boys), and for practicing witchcraft and worshiping a false god named Baphomet! (See chapter 15 for more on the Templars’ history.)
Naming a boys’ order after DeMolay is like naming a shelter for battered woman after Jack the Ripper, or a home for unwed mothers after serial killer Ted Bundy!
Though the Templars’ history is controversial, DeMolay died cursing those who put him to death—hardly a model of young Christian manhood! Why, with all the great men in western history (including Jesus!), would the Masons pick such a corrupt, controversial and obscene man to be a role model for their young men?
Why not Stephen, the first martyr? Why not Joshua? The answer is because DeMolay is one of the central “idols” of the Freemasonic pantheon, probably second in stature only to Hiram Abiff. The DeMolay ritual prepares the young Mason-to-be for a life of involvement in societies dedicated to the worship of Baphomet!”
You are indeed the person of truth, I understand you. Were you part of the masonic or any of this?…
No, I wasn’t part of Masonry, but I began researching about it several years ago. I read books authored by researchers and also by those who were formerly members.
Besides, there’s a variant of Masonry called “Ogboni” here in Nigeria which gave me a traditional perspective of the pagan roots of Freemasonry.
