ON THE MASONIC PROBLEM

So Masonry jealously conceals its secrets, and intentionally leads conceited interpreters astray. (Morals and Dogma Pages 104-105)

George Washington 32nd Degree Mason

Do you have Masons in your church? Lower ranking Masons may not yet be aware of what they are in but the Master Mason is there to sit on the Board and make trouble. My Grandfather, was both a 33rd Degree Mason in the Scottish Rite and a Lifetime Deacon at First Baptist Church. After he died and my Grandmother was moved to a nursing home, I was told that My Uncle had thrown all his books out at the curb. I found his Masonic texts, including Morals and Dogma and the three volumes of the H.L. Mackey’s Revised Encyclopedia of Freemasonry. They were worn and heavily underlined. I knew nothing at the time and the books had an insert that asked that they be returned to the Masonic Lodge and I did so. Now, I have access to the books online and I have Morals and Dogma in PDF format, but I wish I had the originals. The following are excerpts from Albert Pike’s Morals and Dogma and Mackey’s Revised Encyclopedia of Freemasonry. The holiest books in Free Masonry.

I would prefer that people not argue with me about the Masonic Religion. I have placed, in this article, multiple quotes from books considered sacred by Masons. If you wish to defend your lodge, please do so by explaining what you think Albert Pike and Albert Mackey meant in the books quoted.

Albert Pike

Masonry, like all the religions, all Mysteries, Hermetiscism, and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of it’s symbols to mislead those who deserve to be mislead; to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light, from them, and to draw them away from it. Truth is not for those who are unworthy or unable to receive it, or would pervert it. So God Himself incapacitates many men, by color-blindness, to distinguish colors, and leads the masses away from the highest Truth, giving them the power to attain only so much of it as it is profitable to them to know. Every age has had a religion suited to its capacity.

The Teachers, even of Christianity, are, in general, the most ignorant of the true meaning of that which they teach. There is no book of which so little is known as the Bible. To most who read it, it is as incomprehensible as the Sohar*.

So Masonry jealously conceals its secrets, and intentionally leads conceited interpreters astray. (Morals and Dogma Pages 104-105)

* Sohar is “the completest embodiments of Occultism.” page 321

All truly dogmatic religions have issued from the Kabalah and return to it: everything scientific and grand in the religious dreams of all the Illuminati… is borrowed from the Kabalah; all the Masonic associations owe to it their Secrets and their Symbols. (Morals and Dogma, pg 744, Albert Pike)

Masonry, around whose alters the Christian, the Hebrew, the Moslem, the Brahmin, the followers of Confucious and Zoroaster, can assemble as brethren and unite in prayer to the one God who is above all the Baalim, (Morals and Dogma, pg 226)

The first Masonic Legislator whose memory is preserved to us by history, was Buddah (pg 277)

Every Masonic Lodge is a Temple of religion; and its teachings are instructions in religion (pg 213)

We have therefore, in the 24th degree (Masonic Ritual), recited the principal incidents in the legend of Osiris and Isis … Everything good in Nature comes from Osiris… Osiris was the image of generative power. This was expressed by his symbolic statues … Osiris and Isis were the Sun and Moon … and is the All-Seeing Eye in our Lodges … Osiris was invoked as the God that resides in the Sun (pgs. 474-477)

“The Supreme being of the Egyptians was Amun, a secret and concealed God, the Unknown Father of the Gnostics, the Source of Divine Life, and of all force, the Plenitude of all, comprehending all things in Himself, the original Light. He creates nothing, but everything eminates from Him: and all other Gods are but his manifestations. From Him, by the utterance of a Word, eminated Neith, the Divine Mother of all things, the Primitive THOUGHT, the FORCE, that puts everything in movement, the SPIRIT everywhere extended, the Diety of Light and Mother of the Sun. …..Of the Supreme beings, Osiris was the image, Source of all Good in the Moral and Physical World, and a constant foe of Typhone, the Genius of Evil, the Satan of Gnosticism, brute matter, deemed to be always at fued with the spirit that flowed from the Diety; and over whom Har-Oeri, the Redeemer, Son of Isis and Osiris, is finally to prevail.” (pg 281)

It (Freemasonry) reverences all the great reformers. It sees Moses, the Lawgiver of the Jews, in Confucius and Zorastor, in Jesus of Nazareth, and in the Arabian Iconoclast, Great teachers of Morality, and Eminent reformers, if no more… (pg 525)

On page 102, Albert Pike defines Satan as “the negation of God … For the initiates, this is not a Person, but a Force, created for good, but which may serve for evil … They represent this Force … the Light-bearer or Phosphor, of which the poets have made the false Lucifer of the legend.”

Albert Pike says that the Bible lied when it identified Lucifer as Satan, and that Satan is NOT a person, but a Force, by which the Bibles testimony of Lucifer as Satan was a false legend! Thus he lays the foundation for the exaltation of Lucifer, as god!

“LUCIFER, the Light-Bearer! Strange and mysterious name given to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the light … doubt it not!” (Morals and Dogma pg 321)

Albert Mackey

“The MASONIC RELIGION should be, by all of us of the high degree, maintained in the purity of the LUCIFERIAN doctrine If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay (sic) 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…

Thus, the doctrine of Satanism is a heresy; and the true and pure philosophical 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.” (de Larive, A.C., La Femme et l’enfant dans la Franc, Maconnerei Universelle, Paris, 1889, p. 588)

On the contrary, we contend, without any sort of hesitation, that Freemasonry is, in every sense of the word except one, and that its least philosophical, an eminently religious institution–that it is indebted solely to the religious element it contains for its origin as well as its continued existence.. . . The tendency of all Freemasonry is toward religion. If it makes any progress, its progress is toward that holy end. Look at its ancient landmarks, its sublime ceremonies, its profound symbols and allegories–all inculcating religious doctrine, commanding religious observance, and teaching religious truth, and who can deny that it is eminently a religious Institution. . . . We open and close our Lodges with prayer; we invoke the presence of the Most

High upon all our labors; we demand of our neophytes a profession of trusting belief in the existence and the superintending care of God; and we teach them to bow with humility and reverence at His awful name., while His holy Law is widely opened upon our altars” (Mackey: 847). (See Religion of Freemasonry) ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FREEMASONRY AND ITS KINDRED SCIENCES by ALBERT C. MACKEY M. D.

“From all this we can see that the altar in Freemasonry is not merely a convenient article of furniture, intended like a table, to hold a Bible. It is a sacred utensil of religion, intended, like the altars of the ancient temples, for religious uses, and thus identifying Freemasonry, by its necessary existence in our lodges, as a religious institution. Its presence should also lead the contemplative Freemason to view the ceremonies in which it is employed with solemn reverence, as being part of a really religious worship” (Mackey: 56). See Altar ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FREEMASONRY AND ITS KINDRED SCIENCES by ALBERT C. MACKEY M. D.

“Be assured, that God is equally present with the pious Hindoo in the temple, the Jew in the synagogue, the Mohammedan in the mosque, and the Christian in the church” (Mackey: 409-410)

THE HERESY OF THE APOSTATE CHURCH

Have you heard that the End Times Believers overcome the Devil by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of their testimony”? Did you know that that is not true? Did you know that that is a demonic half-truth, propagated by a Devil who loves half-truths and mixture?

One of the sickest things that has overcome, overwhelmed, and made useless the Church in the United States is the practice of preaching a censored and sterilized Gospel. Happy Sermons, limited to happy verses…

Much of Scripture is written in triplets and Revelation 12:11 is no exception. You can listen to a hundred sermons on that verse and in ninety eight of them, you will hear only two thirds of the verse.

  1. The Blood of the Lamb
  2. The Word of their testimony

But there are three things that bring them the victory, not two!

Revelation 12:11 They conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they did not love their lives in the face of death.

  1. The Blood of the Lamb
  2. The word of their testimony
  3. They did not love their own lives in the face of death.

If you leave out number three, you turn the Word of God into a lie.

Number three is unpleasant and unhappy to preachers who have not yet embraced the eternal. Death, to most preachers today, seems to be the end. To find a preacher who has a real and vibrant faith that goes beyond the grave is rare indeed, and so number three is never read or talked about.

Preachers Love John 3:16 and 17,

16 “For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.”

But no modern preacher in his right mind would ever teach on verse 18-22,

18 Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the One and Only Son of God.

19 “This, then, is the judgment: The light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than the light because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone who practices wicked things hates the light and avoids it, so that his deeds may not be exposed. 21 But anyone who lives by the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be shown to be accomplished by God.”

How many times have you heard 2 Chronicles 7:14 quoted and preached on?

14 (If) My people who are called by My name humble themselves, pray and seek My face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.

Can you remember hearing 2 Chronicles 7:19-22 quoted or used as the subject of a sermon?

19 However, if you turn away and abandon My statutes and My commands that I have set before you and if you go and serve other gods and worship them, 20 then I will uproot Israel from the soil that I gave them, and this temple that I have sanctified for My name I will banish from My presence; I will make it an object of scorn and ridicule among all the peoples. 21 As for this temple, which was exalted, everyone who passes by will be appalled and will say: Why did the Lord do this to this land and this temple? 22 Then they will say: Because they abandoned the Lord God of their ancestors who brought them out of the land of Egypt. They clung to other gods and worshiped and served them. Because of this, He brought all this ruin on them.

These are just two examples but it is a systematic heresy. This is based on Church Growth books and seminars, and it has led to an apostate church and the point where the vast majority of American Christians have a warped and twisted understanding of God, Jesus Christ and the Gospel.

We love sermons on how the angels led Peter and James out of prison… past the locked gates… but no one talks about John the Baptist losing his head with Jesus just down the street. No one talks about Stephen being stoned, no one talks about James and Paul losing their heads or the years Paul spent in prison, cold and hungry.

We love the verse, Philippians 4:13, and we twist it to make it say things it never did…

13 I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me.

How many times have you heard that verse preached in context?

10 I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that once again you renewed your care for me. You were, in fact, concerned about me but lacked the opportunity to show it. 11 I don’t say this out of need, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. 12 I know both how to have a little, and I know how to have a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being content—whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need. 13 I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me. 14 Still, you did well by sharing with me in my hardship.

I can learn to be content in all circumstances? I can learn to be content with little? Wow… that isn’t what I want to do through Christ! Paul was content in all circumstances? What kind of circumstances was Paul content in?

  • many more imprisonments,
  • far worse beatings,
  • near death many times.
  • Five times I received 39 lashes from Jews.
  • Three times I was beaten with rods by the Romans.
  • Once I was stoned by my enemies.
  • Three times I was shipwrecked.
  • I have spent a night and a day in the open sea.
  • On frequent journeys, I faced
  • dangers from rivers,
  • dangers from robbers,
  • dangers from my own people,
  • dangers from the Gentiles,
  • dangers in the city,
  • dangers in the open country,
  • dangers on the sea,
  • and dangers among false brothers;
  • labor and hardship,
  • many sleepless nights, hunger and thirst,
  • often without food, cold, and lacking clothing.

(2 Corinthians 11)

Are these the things I can do through Christ who strengthens me? Why didn’t the Preacher ever tell me?

If you only know the happy verses, what are you going to do when they come for you, Christian? What are you going to do?

David…
