"Let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach up to heaven; and let us make us a name lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the earth." Genesis 11:4.


     The original freemasons were stone masons who formed a guild to serve as a form of "trade union". An increase in building cathedrals in Europe by the church in the Middle Ages created a large market for those who were skilled stone workers. The history of the Masons is generally divided into two periods. During the first of these periods, they were known as "Operative Masons, who were actually builders of buildings and Temples. The second part of Masonic history involved what is called "Speculative Masonry", during which time the Masons started to allow into their membership those who were willing to assist in building a "Spiritual Temple" or building here on earth... a Temple of Universal Harmony.

      The Freemasons were an organization of builders who were bound together by their secret knowledge of the relationship between the earthly and divine sciences of architecture. In other words, the science of how an earthly structure was built would supposedly provide wisdom on how to build a "Spiritual Temple" within one's own soul and for all of mankind collectively.


      These types of Secret Societies have always been in existence, and they have been the bridges from ancient Babylon to modern day occultism, the occultism that masonry practices and teaches. The teachings of these Secret Societies are the same that the New Age Spiritualism Movement embraces. You will discover, after reading about Masonry that Babylonian Witchcraft is it's "Mother"... "The Mother of harlots and abominations of the Earth." Revelation 17:5

     During their captivity in Babylon, there were certain Jewish priests who had explored deeply into the Religion of the ancient Babylonians, which was Witchcraft. These Jews had developed the "Secret Mysteries" of the Babylonian Mystery Religion into a sophisticated form of occultism which they called the Cabala, and Cabalistic teachings are a part of modern Freemasonry today.

     Tradition has it that the Mason's word is "as old Babel", when they could not understand one another, and they conversed by sign language. The Masons are proud of their ancient roots:

"As regards to Masonry, Babel of course represented a Masonic enterprise and early expositors reaped full benefit from the facts. They remembered that the people, who were of 'one language and one speech' journeyed from the East to the West, like those who have been tried and proved as Master Masons. When they reached an abiding place in the land Shinar, it is affirmed that they dwelt therein as Noachide, being the first characteristic name of Masons. It was here that they built their high tower of confusion. Out of evil comes good, however, and the confusion of tongues gave rise to 'the ancient practice of Masons conversing without the use of speech.'" -Arthur Edward Waite, A New Encyclopedia of Freemasonry and of Cognate Instituted Mysteries: Their Rites, Literature and History, Volume I, Page 61, 62

     In "The Masonic Quiz Book", the question is asked, "Who was Nimrod", the answer is, "He was the son of Cush. In the old Constitutions referred to as one of the Founders of Freemasonry, and in the Scriptures as the architect of many cities." - William Adrian Brown, Facts, Fables and Fantasies of Freemasonry, Page 169

     In the Masonic York Rite Manuscript we find: "at the making of the Tower of Babel there was Masonry first much esteemed of, and Nimrod was a Mason himself and loved well Masons."- John T Lawrence, The Perfect Ashlar, Page 295. Another Masonic author named John Yarker says: "it is well known that the Tower of Babel was one of the most ancient traditions of Masonry..." John Yarker, The Arcane Schools, pg. 267

The Freemasons: a Poem
If history be not
ancient fable
Freemasons came from
the Tower of Babel.
1783, London

     Satan kept this Secret Society that started in Babylon going throughout the Ages. In 1717, the first Masonic Lodge was established in London, England. Since that time, Lodges have spread all over the World. Masonic Lodges first appeared in America in Philadelphia (1730) and Boston (1733).


     Nimrod told the people to build a tower, whose top would reach unto the heavens" "Let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach up to heaven; and let us make us a name lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the earth." Genesis 11:4. Here they decided to build a city, and in it a tower of such stupendous height as should render it the great wonder of the world. These enterprises were designed to prevent the people from scattering aborad into colonies.

     The Babylonians had wanted to keep their community united in one body, and to found a great monarcy that would one day embrace the whole earth. Thus their city would become the metropolis of a universal empire;and its glory would command the adoration and homage of the world. It was God who had destroyed the antedeluvian world by a flood; and their hearts, like that of Cain, rose up in rebellion against Him. One purpose of building the tower was to provide for themselves safety in case of yet another flood.

     The Freemasons who pride themselves on having their roots in the tower of Babel have the same ideas and plans of the one whom they reverence... Nimrod! They too have a great desire to build a World Empire, uniting their forces of evil together against the God of Heaven! These Secret Societies have one goal and that is to create a World Revolution, and a New World Order in which occult teachings will one day prevail, with Lucifer at it's head!

     This is the usual impression of Masonry that is set before the World: "The Freemasonry seeks to do charitable work among communities, and to be of service to people. They seek the brotherhood of man. The builder's tools are a symbol of building up one's character and of making good men better." This "line" that is fed to the public, however, is fraudulent, which you will learn as we study together into the truth about Freemasonry.

     Masonry will be one of the chief vehicles that Satan will work through to achieve his evil plan for these last days, just before Jesus comes. It is not safe to have any part with this Secret Order. Those who stand under the blood stained banner of Christ cannot be united with the Freemasons, or with any Secret Organization. A power from beneath is working to bring about the last great scenes in the drama, - Satan coming as Christ, and working with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in those who are binding themselves together in Secret Societies. Those who are yielding themselves to the passion for confederation are working out the plans for the enemy.
