The Freemasonry Society seems on the outside to be a respectable "Men's Club" and a very charitable Organization. However, if we were to closely inspect their teachings, with an open mind and a prayerful attitude, we would soon find that this Group is nothing like it appears to be to the public eye! Its true goals and objectives are far from being innocent!
Masonry is in reality, a Religion, and is the worship of Lucifer or of Satan himself! We can know this simply by examining their use of symbols. But of course, the Leaders of this seemingly benevolent Organization find it prudent to carefully hide the fact that they are satanic. Let us begin by reading what the great Masonic Leader Albert Pike had to say about Masonry in his famous book, Morals and Dogma:
"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!" Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, p. 321, 19th Degree of Grand Pontiff.
Albert Pike gives solid evidence of Freemason's worship of Satan on the cover of Morals and Dogma. Below the seal of "God", Pike writes a Latin phrase, which proves to be a typical satanic phrase. One look at this phrase would alert any Satanist that the contents of this book are Satanic! What is this phrase? "DEUS MEUMQUE JUS" The literal meaning is "God and My Right"
A former Satanist, Doc Marquis says this statement is a very characteristic one within Satanism. It has two meanings. First, this phrase means that the Freemason can depend upon their God, Lucifer, to determine their Right and Justice. Secondly, since the God of Freemasonry is Lucifer, Masons are saying that they are "using occult methods", through Lucifer, to achieve their Rights and Justice.
Marquis says that this phrase is very powerful and very dangerous within Satanism. If a Satanist sees this phrase in Latin on Pike's book, he knows the material within is Satanism!
"The day has come when Fellow Craftsman (Freemason) must know and apply their knowledge. The lost key to their grade is the mastery of emotion, which places the energy of the universe at their disposal. Man can only expect to be entrusted with great power by proving his ability to use it constructively and selflessly. When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the mystery of his CRAFT. The seething energies of LUCIFER are in his hands, and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply energy. He must follow in the footsteps of his forefather, Tubal-Cain, who with the mighty strength of the war god hammered his sword into a plowshare." Manly P. Hall, 33rd Degree Mason, K.T., The Lost Keys of Freemasonry or The Secret of Hiram Abiff
For additional confirmation that the Masons really do worship the Devil, we need look no further than their use of symbols. We will investigate just a few of them now.
The Freemasons adore the figure of the Baphomet, a half man and half goat creature, which in reality represents the "God of forces" or the Devil. Albert Pike, revered Mason said this about the Baphomet:
"The Gnostics held that it [universal agent] composed the igneous [pertaining to fire] body of the Holy Spirit, and it was adored in the secret rites of the Sabbat or the Temple under the hieroglyphic figure of Baphomet or the hermaphroditic goat of Mendes ." Pike, op. cit., p. 734, teaching of the 28th Degree
The dualistic nature of life and the male female aspects of creation are believed to be contained within the drawing of Occultist Eliphas Levi's Baphomet (above). Levi was one of the foremost Satanists and Freemasons. The image of the Baphomet combines both male and female androgynous qualities; one arm masculine, one feminine; the breasts of a woman with a phallic object on its lap. The illustration also shows one arm points toward a white crescent moon the other towards a dark crescent moon, representing the duality of good and evil. Here is what Eliphas Levi said about the Baphomet in his book, Haute Magie:
"The goat on the frontispiece carries the sign of the pentagram on the forehead, with one point at the top, a symbol of light, his two hands forming the sign of hermetism, the one pointing up to the white moon of Chesed, the other pointing down to the black one of Geburah. This sign expresses the perfect harmony of mercy with justice. His one arm is female, the other male like the ones of the androgyn of Khunrath, the attributes of which we had to unite with those of our goat because he is one and the same symbol. The flame of intelligence shining between his horns is the magic light of the universal balance, the image of the soul elevated above matter, as the flame, whilst being tied to matter, shines above it. The ugly beast's head expresses the horror of the sinner, whose materially acting, solely responsible part has to bear the punishment exclusively; because the soul is insensitive according to its nature and can only suffer when it materializes. The rod standing instead of genitals symbolizes eternal life; the body covered with scales the water, the semi- circle above it the atmosphere, the feathers following above the volatile. Humanity is represented by the two breasts and the androgyn arms of this sphinx of the occult sciences."
The Baphomet contains several representations of the Occult pantheistic God of Forces (Pan), or the positive and negative aspects of Nature. Basically, this teaching revolves around the idea that good and evil are the same or to be blended together. (Please read my articles in this Web Site about the New Age Movement, for additional insight)... and just who is Pan? Why, he is none other than the Devil himself!
If you look closely, you will see Baphomet making the sign of the Devil's Trinity with his right hand, representing the forces of darkness and light joining together into one. "Baphomet is also known as the Sabbatic goat, in whose form Satan is to be worshipped at the Witches' Sabbath". Frank Gaynor, Dictionary of Mysticism pg. 24
THE PENTEGRAM AND THE PHOENIX
The Goat of Mendes or Baphomet which Freemasons make use of in their symbols is seen here, with the Pentagram on it's head. As you can clearly see, the Tarot Card with the goat and Pentagram is called The Devil. The Pentagram is a frequently utilized symbol in both the Masonry and Satanism, and it has evil significance. The women's Division of the Masonry called The Eastern Star also makes prominent use of the Pentagram.symbol
Once again, let's go to Occultic Writer and 33rd Degree Freemason, Manly Hall, for an explanation of this symbol. In his book, The Phoenix: An Illustrated Review of Occultism and Philosophy pg. 176,177 we read the following:
"Among the ancients a fabulous bird called the Phoenix is described by early writers ... in size and shape it resembles the eagle, but with certain differences. The body of the Phoenix is one covered with glossy purple feathers, and the plumes in its tail are alternately blue and red. The head of the bird is light in color, and about its neck is a circlet of golden plumage. At the back of its back the Phoenix has a crest of feathers of brilliant color ... The Phoenix, it is said, lives for 500 years, and at its death its body opens and the new born Phoenix emerges. Because of this symbolism, the Phoenix is generally regarded as representing immortality and resurrection ... The Phoenix is one sign of the secret orders of the ancient world and of the initiate of those orders, for it was common to refer to one who had been accepted into the temples as a man twice-born, or reborn. Wisdom confers a new life, and those who become wise are born again."
To "become wise" means to gain the new Occultic Light, and to thus be "born again" into the New Age Luciferic Worldview.
Thus we see now that these two birds are not eagles, as they seem to be, but rather the Phoenix Bird of Ancient Egyptian Mythology. When Manly Hall talks about being born again, it isn't in the usual Christian sense at all. Let's read what the emergence of the Phoenix Bird really means, in relation to the idea of being "born again", but rather a rising again from one's own ashes (note the Phoenix bird with the smoldering fire under it).
In Barbara Walker's book, "Now is the Dawning" she tells us that the Egyptians believed that the Phoenix represented a god who "rose to heaven, in the form of a star, like Lucifer, after his fire- immolation of death and rebirth."
New Agers with the Sunrise also portray this same idea. That is why the NEW AGE is also referred to as THE NEW DAWN Let me tell you a little Occult history. The Bible talks about Nimrod who had to do with the building of the Tower of Babel in Babylon which of course is the birthplace of Occultism. His evil followers believed that when Nimrod died, he was immortal and went to live up in the Sun.
And so whenever the Sun would rise in the morning, the Babylonians believed it to be Nimrod "rising again" he supposedly went down at night to fight off the evil creatures in the ocean when the Sun set but he came up again every morning, victorious! This of course symbolizes Lucifer "dying" when he got thrown out of heaven and then "rising again" when he will once again rule the World! And this New Age period is supposed to be a time when Occultism and Lucifer's followers will reign supreme upon the face of the Earth! Thus, the Occult Phoenix bird is shown with a smoldering fire underneath and it "rises from its ashes" in triumph.
The rising of the phoenix bird also symbolizes the New Age idea that the "Divine Cosmic Plan" that the highly evolved Great Masters have for our Earth Civilization is going to come into effect soon. Earth will "rise from its ashes" and begin anew, its inhabitants having the new Cosmic Consciousness. It is like a "rebirth" of the Ancient Occult Mystery Religions in our World.
The following quotation is from an Occult site, regarding the Phoenix bird:
"Ovid tells the story of the Phoenix follows: "Most beings spring from other individuals; but there is a certain kind which reproduces itself. The Assyrians call it the Phoenix. It does not live on fruit or flowers, but on frankincense and odoriferous gums. When it has lived five hundred years, it builds itself a nest in the branches of an oak, or on the top of a palm tree. In this it collects cinnamon, and spikenard, and myrrh, and of these 'materials builds a pile on which it deposits itself, and dying, breathes out its last breath amidst odours. From the body of the parent bird, a young Phoenix issues forth, destined to live as long a life as its predecessor. When this has grown up and gained sufficient strength, it lifts its nest from the tree (its own cradle and its parent's sepulchre), and carries it to the city of Heliopolis in Egypt, and deposits it in the temple of the Sun."
Obviously, we can see that the Phoenix bird has to do with Ancient Egyptian Sun Worship! Freemasonry is in reality built upon the Ancient Mystery Religions of Egypt and Babylon!
