The Structure of Freemasonry

Freemasons

Many Freemasons will argue that their Craft is only a Gentleman’s Club of innocence to promote morality and virtue. However, their own documents prove otherwise.

Many wonder how we know more than the initiate taken through the course. My article Why I am Against Freemasonry explains this fully. Here is the doctrines and structure of the Freemason organization.

The main headquarters is stationed at Washington D.C. just north of the Capitol. It holds Masonic literature, and honors its leaders by statues and plaques. Its library holds many esoteric (occult) books on everything from New Age to philosophy, to Satanism and occult magick.

The Hierarchy

According to author Juri Lani, in Architects of Deception, he explains:

There are 33 degrees divided into seven categories. The fifth category, for example, contains the Knight degrees (19, 20, 23, 27, 28 and 29), which stem from the Order of Knights Templar.

The fourth category has two subsections. The first contains the Israelite degrees (4th and 8th degrees). The seventh category contains only the highest degrees (31-33).

Upon achieving the 18th degree, permission is required from the masonic elite in order to advance further.

THE FEW FREEMASONS WHO REACH THE 28TH DEGREE ARE SUDDENLY INFORMED THAT EVERYTHING THEY LEARNED PREVIOUSLY WAS FALSE. Only then will the truth be told. This is done intentionally to test how reliable these Freemasons are. They are not permitted to tell the public about their activities.

The 31st degree is called Grand Inspector Inquisitor. The 32nd degree is called Master of the Royal Secret. Only upon attaining the 32nd degree are the Freemasons told that “Freemasonry will eventually control the world” [Paul A. Fisher, “Behind the Lodge Door”, Rockford, Illinois 1994, p. 240]. Within the 32nd degree, members are given a “true picture” of Freemasonry.  The 33rd and last degree is Inspector General Honorary or Sovereign Grand Commander.

The three highest degrees are reserved for the leaders of the order. The lower degrees are only a facade for the ignorant. This is the reason why most ordinary brothers have no idea of how their role is abused. Many have difficulty in understanding that freemasonry is a state within the state and poses a serious threat to every society.

One man, who belonged to the 33rd degree but later left the organization’s pointless rituals behind him, stated: “Through the rites you are trained not to reflect over contradictions. You are trained to allow yourself to be fooled.”

Symbols and Rituals

Symbols and rituals play an important part to conceal the mysteries, to communicate in esoteric language, keep the inept from the truths of the Craft, and to guard its secrets.

The leader of the Knights Templar had based all this knowledge on powerfully charged magic symbols within the higher degrees. Masonic directions state: “Magic is like mathematics, it is precision without error and the absolute science of nature and its laws.”

Many will deny that symbols have any significance in Secret Societies of deliberation in public display in logos, signs, and whatever. Let us look from their own occult writings on the subject.

In Albert Pike’s Morals and Dogma, in the Freemason Library, it reads,

Accepted Scottish Rite; and the beginning of a course of instruction which will fully unveil to you the heart and inner mysteries of Masonry. Do not despair because you have often seemed on the point of attaining the inmost light, and have as often been disappointed. In all time, truth has been hidden under SYMBOLS.

We have preserved and multiplied such emblems as have a true and profound meaning… The ignorant in their own conceit, may assail our symbols with sarcasms; but they are nevertheless ingenious veils that cover the Truth.”

Alice Bailey (founder of Lucifer Publishing/Lucis Trust) in her book, Reappearance of the Christ says,

“These ancient mysteries were hidden in NUMBERS, in RITUAL, in WORDS, and in SYMBOLOGY. These veil the secret.

It is an esoteric language of communication. They use symbols to mark their influence and presence. This can be seen in public through building art, mysterious markings, in media reporting of numbers reported, in sequence of events, and in movies and television.

The Dark Oaths and Death Threats

The oaths in Freemasonry have been exposed in works such as a book called Illustrations of Freemasonry, by Captain William Morgan in the 19th century.

He reveals (at least by that time) the secret oaths within the Freemason initiation. In the first three initiate degrees (Blue Lodge), the initiate asks for Light, then for further light, then more light, and recites these as their oath:

Apprentice: “To all of which I do most solemnly and sincerely promise and swear, without the least equivocation, mental reservation, or self evasion of mind in me whatever; binding myself under no less penalty than to have my throat cut across, my tongue torn out by the roots, and my body buried in the rough sands of the sea at low water-mark, where the tide ebbs and flows twice in twenty-hours; so help me God, and keep me steadfast in the due performance of the same.”

Fellow Craft: “To all which I do most solemnly and sincerely promise and swear without the least hesitation, mental reservation, or self evasion of mind in me whatever; binding myself under no less penalty than to have my left breast torn open and my heart and vitals taken from thence and thrown over my left shoulder and carried into the valley of Jehosaphat, there to become a prey to the wild beasts of the field, and vulture of the air, if ever I should prove willfully guilty of violating any part of this my solemn oath or
obligation of a Fellow Craft Mason; so help me God, and keep me steadfast in the due performance of the same.”

Master: “Furthermore do I promise and swear that if any part of my solemn oath or obligation be omitted at this time, that I will hold myself amenable thereto whenever informed. To all which I do most sincerely promise and swear, with a fixed and steady purpose of mind in me to keep and perform the same, binding myself under no less penalty than to have my body severed in two in the midst, and divided to the north and south, my bowels burnt to ashes in the center, and the ashes scattered before the four winds of heaven, that there might not the least track or trace of remembrance remain among men. or Masons, of so vile and perjured a wretch as I should be, were I ever to prove willfully guilty of violating any part of this my solemn oath or obligation of a Master Mason. So help me God, and keep me steadfast in the duo, performance of the same.”

Albert Pike, Albert Mackey, and Manly P. Hall, which have been the leading contributors of the secrets of Masonry. And it is they who contend that Masonry is a religion and that every Lodge is a Temple of religion. It is also they were reveal the “LIGHT” in which the initiate seeks, while entered up the facade of his own god, will soon understand that their god is submitted to Lucifer as the Light.

 

The End of the Journey

Whether they know it or not, Masonic RELIGION is based upon knowledge (Enlightenment) of the Light, which is personified in the Light-Bearer, Lucifer.

Albert Pike, the 33rd degree Mason who is a main writer for modern Freemasonry, wrote in his work Morals and Dogma about Lucifer, first bringing up the Christian perception, then asking the question how Lucifer, a being of light, can be the darkness proposed by Christians. And then he equates him with Adonay saying Lucifer, like Adonay, is also God. It is taught in lower degrees, but only alluded to the fact.

Then in course of the 30th, 31st, 32nd, and 33rd degree, Pike admits the allegorical accounts of God attributed to Lucifer is revealed. He states, “We worship a God, but not one of (the) superstition” In other words, not God of the Bible, but someone else. Along the way the roles are reversed, and Lucifer becomes the God of Light and good, and Adonay the God of darkness and evil. In the 33rd degree it is revealed that the Great Architect of the Universe is Lucifer.

In the 33rd degree if one desires to remain in the Christian allegory (remember, the faith at this point is just a principle), his journey ends. Only Masons whose conduct proves they had defected from God (of the Bible), can be initiated into further degrees of Illumination (Illuminati). And if the proper bloodline may proceed in the Rosicrucian degrees to learn the Illuminated mysteries.

Any Mason denying that this is indoctrinated in them is only ignorant of their own Craft. Pike states that the Masonic RELIGION should be, by the Adepts of the High levels, maintained in the purity of the LUCIFERIAN DOCTRINE.

Warning to the Christian

Hey Christian Freemason, does this sound like it is of God?

“The day has come when Fellow Craftsmen 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. Incessant vigilance over thought, action, and desire is indispensable to those who wish to make progress in the unfolding of their own being, and the Fellow Craft’s degree is the degree of transmutation. The hand that slays must lift the fallen, while the lips given to cursing must be taught to pray. The heart that hates must learn the mystery of compassion, as the result of a deeper and more perfect understanding of man’s relation to his brother. The firm, kind hand of spirit must curb the flaming powers of emotion with an iron grip. In the realization and application of these principles lies the key of the Fellow Craft.”

This is out of your own books, “The Lost Keys of Freemasonry,” Manly P. Hall. His teachings are a guidebook to Masonic leaders, but you may not have known that is what you are being indoctrinated. REPENT Mason and turn from the wicked teachings.
