Freemasonry and Shriners
"Every Masonic Lodge is a Temple of religion; and its teachings are instructions in religion" Morals and Dogma pg 213 by Albert Pike, GRAND COMMANDER, SUPREME COUCIL, 33° ANCIENT AND ACCEPTED SCOTTISH RITE OF FREEMASONRY, SOUTHERN JURISDICTION USA 1859 - 1891
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......Freemasonry may rightfully claim to be called a religious institution......Freemasonry, then, is indeed a religious institution; and on this ground mainly, if not alone, should the religious Freemason defend it. (See Religion of Freemasonry) ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FREEMASONRY AND ITS KINDRED SCIENCES by ALBERT C. MACKEY M. D.
Freemasonry is a religious institution, and hence its regulations inculcate the use of prayer ( (Encylclopedia of Freemasnory See "Prayer") ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FREEMASONRY AND ITS KINDRED SCIENCES by ALBERT C. MACKEY M. D.
...who can deny that it (Freemasonry) 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, Albert G., Clegg, Robert I., and Haywood, H.L. Mackey’s Revised Encyclopedia of Freemasonry. Revised Edition. Three Volumes. 847 (Chicago: The Masonic History Company, 1946
As you study this page, you may want to first read the explination of Luciferianism. Those whom influenced the creation of the Lodge noted in the above comments were deeply rooted in this religion!
Let me give you several quotations on the Luciferianism Doctrine and you determine if this sounds like the teachings of Freemasonry
"Although sometimes mistakenly associated with Satanism due to the Christian interpretation of the fallen angel, Luciferianism is a wholly different belief system and does not revere the devil figure or most characteristics typically affixed to Satan. Rather, Lucifer in this context is seen as one of many morning stars, a symbol of enlightenment, independence and human progression,
For Luciferians, enlightenment is the ultimate goal. The basic Luciferian principles highlight truth and freedom of will, worshipping the inner self and one's ultimate potential.
Lucifer is a representation of ultimate knowledge and exploration: humanity's savior and a champion for continuing personal growth."
No matter how you put it, this doctrine simply is NOT the Gospel message nor is it Christian!
Who is your "Worshipful Master?" And who is your "Worshipful Grand Master”?
In each Lodge, every initiate bows his knee to another Mason whom he addresses as "Worshipful Master" as he swears his death oath of secrecy. In their ritual in which Hiram Abiff is glorified (shown later on this page to be Lucifer), they identify him as their "Worshipful Grand Master".
“Worshipful” is defined in the Webster's Dictionary as “worthy of being worshiped”
“Grand” in definition includes “to swell up, pride, most important”
"Master" is defined as "one who rules others, has control, authority"
These men act in direct disobedience to Jesus who said:
"No one can serve two Masters; for he Will hate the one and love the other.. (Matt. 6:24)
"Neither be ye called Masters; for ONE is your Master, even Christ.” (Matt. 23:10)
THE ONLY MASTER IS JESUS CHRIST AND NO ONE ELSE IS TO BE WORSHIPPED! (Rev. 19:10)
They have also exalted some men in the Lodge (Shriners) as the "Imperial Grand Potentate", a designation which belongs to Jesus Christ alone.
Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and ONLY Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; (1 Tim. 6:15)
The Masonic Lodge is the Father of many occultic religions which have spun from the rituals of the Lodge such as "The Order of the Golden Dawn", the "Rosicrucians", "Ordo Templi Orientis", the "Order of the Trapeziod", the "Illuminati", and the Mormon Church (or "Latter day Saints"). You can learn more about these occults in the review of Albert Pikes “Morals and Dogmas” and the Occults of Freemasonry!
In Matt. 5:33-37 & James 5:12 Jesus says NOT to make Oaths.
Matt 5:33-37 “Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.” (from the devil)
James 5:12 But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.
Yet the Master Mason makes a solemn oath on the Bible to "Acknowledge and obey all due signs and summons sent to me from a Master Masons' Lodge... all this I most solemnly and sincerely swear... So help me God" with the penalty of death by mutilation!
In Making the above oath, the Mason has sworn the Master Mason's Lodge as his LORD AND MASTER! He has SWORN to OBEY EVERY order the Lodge gives him! You CANNOT serve TWO MASTERS! A TRUE Christian has committed his life to OBEY Jesus!
Jesus said this oath comes from Satan (evil) in Matthew 5:37 "...for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil" and brings the one who swears the oath "into condemnation" in James 5:12!
The Mason has SINNED by making this oath, forsaking the words of Jesus Christ, and puts himself in danger of breaking up to 4 of the 10 Commandments! The Mason, unknowingly has placed himself and his family under a devils CURSE that only Repentance can break. Your words hold a lot of value, and every single word you speak, will one day stand before the judgment seat of God!
Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

Above picture is from the Duncan's Masonic Ritual and Monitor! Here the Candidate is blindfolded, has a rope around his neck, half naked, kneeling before an "alter" and the Worshipful Master, with his hands on the Bible, he then proclaims a curse upon himself before God! This ritual is Satanic! He enters the Lodge Blinded and remains spiritually blinded as long as he remains in the Lodge!
" they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch." Matthew 15:14
When a freemason is being initiated into the third degree he is struck on the forhead in the dark, knocked back either into a coffin or onto a coffin shape. His fellow masons lift him up and when he opens his eyes he is confronted with the skull and bones of 'a mason who broke his vow of secrecy'.
(Duncan's Masonic Ritual can be purchased at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble or Books-A-Million.) You can also read the rituals of Freemasonry by Captain William Morgan, who spent 33 years in the Lodge and was finally kidnapped and murdered by his "Masonic fraternal brothers" on Sept. 11th 1826, receiving the due penalty of his sworn blood oath to the group for exposing their secrets. I will cover more on Capt. Morgan later!
The Wikipedia encyclopedia writes: "In Italy, from the 1970s to the 2000s, the P2 lodge has been investigated in the wake of a financial scandal that nearly bankrupted the Vatican Bank in the late 1970s, as well as on suspicion of involvement in numerous murders, including the head of Banco Ambrosiano, Roberto Calvi, who was found hanging under Blackfriars Bridge in London, England, with five kilos of stone in his pockets. The trial of some of Calvi's alleged killers will begin in the autumn of 2005....in Nice, France, the head prosecutor accused some judges and other judicial personnel of deliberately stalling or refusing to elucidate cases involving Masons, and in Britain, the Labour Party government is currently planning to pass a law requiring all public officials who are members of any fraternal organisation to make their affiliation public." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freemasonry)
You CANNOT keep a secret without telling a lie! If a Mason should tell the truth, he has broken his oath, and if he should keep the terms of his oath, he is subject to death! The Mason, when confronted with direct questions about the Lodge, must say nothing, or lie to protect the secrets of his idol and in doing so, places his soul in danger of hell! More often than not, their pride gets in the way, and they will respond and lie. One Mason whom I confronted, helped me to correctly pronounce their Blasphemous replacement name of God, "Jahbulon" , and then, 15 minutes later he denied that he ever heard of the word. (This man eventually left the Lodge having been under conviction by the Holy Spirit and desiring a deeper walk with Jesus)
I was told of a Mason initiate in Louisiana, who had his fingers chopped off, accidentally, during a Masonic initiation. They asked him to write everything he knew about the Lodge (which is forbidden by the Lodge). The initiation ritual at his lodge, used a sword, in which they would slam on the table to frighten the initiate, so that he would never think about writing their secrets again. The man swinging the sword got TOO close and cut off his fingers. Each Lodge uses their own method of creating this "fear" during the ritual. The Fox News link above, reports of one that used a gun! Of course, this would be an appropriate way of killing a man, and making it look like an accident, especially if the investigating officer is also one of the Lodge members! Regardless, their initiation ritual can create, fear, injury or even death! Since fear comes from the devil, it is clear this ritual originates from Satan.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (2 Tim. 1:7)
The initiate can break up to 4 Commandments of God simply by taking the oath to become a Mason.
"...binding myself under no less penalty than that of having my throat cut across, my tongue torn out by its roots, and my body buried in the rough sands of the seas... So help me God..”
1. “Thou shalt not Kill” This includes your own body. Suicide is murder. Thus breaking the 6th Commandment.
2 "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord in Vain" If you say the oath is not taken seriously, you have used God's name in vain, even kissing the Bible. Thus you have broken the 3rd Commandment.
3. Breaking the 2nd Commandment, the Square and Compass are reverenced as "Idols" on the alter.
4 Breaking the 1st Commandment, "Thou shalt have no other God's before Me." The God of Freemasonry is NOT THE GOD OF THE BIBLE.
Every Mason who swears this blood oath has placed his family under a curse! For an illustration of this curse by Chick tracts, click here!
MANY LEADING MINISTRIES CONDEMN MASONIC INVOLVEMENT
Many leading ministries condemn Freemasonry as being in conflict with fundamental Christian Doctrine!
THE 33° DEGREE OATH
The following is an excerpt from the testimony of Jim Shaw as he took the 33° degree oath!
One of the Conductors then handed the "candidate" a human skull, upside down, with wine in it. "May this wine I now drink become a deadly poison to me, as the Hemlock juice drunk by Socrates, should I ever knowingly or willfully violate the same" (the oath).
He then drank the wine. A skeleton (one of the brothers dressed like one - he looked very convincing) then stepped out of the shadows and threw his arms around the "candidate." Then he (and we) continued the sealing of the obligation by saying, "And may these cold arms forever encircle me should I ever knowingly or willfully violate the same."
You can read the rest of Jim Shaw's testimony as he received the 33° degree, but under great conviction by the Holy Spirit, he quickly resigned from the lodge shortly thereafter.
WHAT IS GOD'S NAME?
The Royal Arch candidate is given the "Lost name of God" which they claim is "JAH-BUL-ON." Then the High Priest of the Royal Arch says this is "the divine Logos, or “Word” referred to in John 1:1-5.” If you are a Christian, you know John 1:1-5 "The Word" is Jesus Christ, the Author of Life, NOT the Blasphemous name JAH-BUL-ON. (Nor the Destroyer, "Abaddon" of the Scottish Rite).
JAH- representing the name JAHOVAH
BUL- representing the name BAAL or BEL, an Old Testament Demon god. (1 Kings 16:29-33)
ON- represents the name of the Egyptian Demon Sun god. (Gen. 41:45, 50)
Henry Wilson Coil in Coil's Masonic Encyclopedia (95:516) and the Masonic Ritual and Monitor (58:226) admit that “Bul” or "Bel” refers to the Assyrian or Canaanite deity BAAL and that "ON" refers to the Egyptian deity OSIRIS.
In the Scottish Rite (17°) they declare God's name to be “Abaddon". Abaddon is a Hebrew word (Strongs Concordance #11) that means "destroyer" which is the "demon of the bottomless pit" and is referred to in Rev. 9:11.
And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.  And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
I certainly wouldn't want this demon to be MY God!
Click here " JAH-BUL-ON " for visual copy of "Duncan's Ritual and Monitor" page 250 which clearly shows BUL and ON to be the demon gods of other nations.
SHRINERS OATH in the name of another god!
The full name of the Shriners is the "Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine".
Shriners are well known for their "Shriner Circus" where they claim to raise money for their burn hospitals. In June, 1986, a daily newspaper in Florida, the Orlando Sentinel reported that less than 2% of the circus money raised actually went to the hospitals and that, by 1982, the Shriners had become the richest charity in America, amassing $1.2 billion in *assets. Of the $17.5 million raised in 1984, $17.3 million went into their own pockets while only $182,051 went to support the hospitals! The Shriner hospitals are a "front" appealing to compassionate hearts in order to accumulate great wealth for the Shriners themselves! (Full Article)
* As of 9-30-04, Forbes reports that the Shriners had assets of $8.62 billion. Of the $948 mil. raised, the Shriners retained $412 mil with only a slight more than half, $505 mil. going to charitable services! Top Shriner, Ralph Semb, was paid $406,659 in salaries.
* As of 12-31-06, Forbes magazine reports the Shriners have amassed a $9.54 billion empire retaining $636 million of the money raised that same year. Top Shriner, James Full, collected a healthy $1,207,369 in salaries.
Reader, be informed, the Shriners are getting filthy rich under the guise of "Charity!"
In their initiation ritual, the Shriner makes a blood oath of secrecy by appealing to the Pagan God of the feared terrorist Muslim religion! Every Shriner who has confessed an oath to "Allah" which is the great Shahada, or “confession,” which faithful Muslims around the world declare daily, has denied the Lord Jesus Christ by committing idolatry! Please read this study on the idol called Allah.
This Shriner symbol shown above, was borrowed from the "symbol of Islam", the worship of the moon god, (Allah) represented by the crescent moon. In pre-islamic times, Allah was the chief God with lesser goddesses (Al-lat, Al-uzza and Manat) which may be represented by the star. The symbol originates from the Ottoman Empire!
National Flags of the Muslim nations of Algeria, Pakistan and Tunisia
In the crescent moon of the Shriners symbol, you will also notice the face of the Sphinx, (a lions body with a face of a man) which literally means "the strangler" (Webster's Dictionary). In Greek mythology, the sphinx at Thebes strangles all those who pass by that are unable to guess its riddle. The scimitar or sword used through the centuries to behead the Christians who would not deny Jesus and confess "Allah" as God (and confess Muhammad as God's prophet), hangs over the crescent moon!
Encarta, Wikipedia (1), Britannica (2) and Questia Encyclopidia (3) all identify the red hat, called a "Fez" (or tarboosh) as "a Muslim symbol". Ron Carlson, in his book Fast Facts About Freemasonry (1), writes that Fez, Morocco is where the Muslims, in the 8th century, murdered every person who refused to bow their knee to Allah and Muhammad. They dipped their hats in the blood and proudly wore them as symbols of victory. While some Masons argue the validity to this bit of trivia, the fact remains that the Fez is the symbol of Islam! Why, would a Christian man, proudly wear a symbol of Islam? I will continue with the fact that, in Northern Africa, and in Fez, Morocco, history does show that the Muslims slaughtered many Jews who would not succumb to their religion. Ref. Jewish Virtual Library, Wikipedia.
The first Shriner temple organized in Sept., 1872, was named "Mecca", the "holy" city of the Muslim religion and birthplace of Muhammad. Mecca is the very center of the Islam faith. Every day, Muslims around the world, face towards Mecca, and bow down to pray to their idol.
Each Temple or Shrine, has a "Potentate" and a "High Priest and Prophet". I must ask, "High priest and prophet of WHICH god"? Each Shrine is named after a Muslim or Egyptian city or place of worship! Is the name of Jesus Christ ever invoked upon in prayer within the Shrine? NO! Yet they invoke the name of "Allah" in their initiation rites! Furthermore, they disobey the scripture that declares that Jesus is the ONLY Potentate as they belittle Christ by replacing him with a Muslim worshipping Shriner who takes this glory upon himself!
1 Tim. 6:15 Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;
If you are in the Shrine and claim to be a Christian, you have unknowingly (or maybe knowingly) forsaken the living God into a confession of serving the idol God of the Muslims, and proudly wear the symbols of the worlds most feared terrorists and most horrible, current day enemies of the Christian faith!
A former mason and shriner wrote me an e-mail saying "Every Birthday I received a "Happy Birthday" card (from the Shriners) stating, "May ALLAH bless you!"
It is interesting to me, how a man feels that he must commit to, and Serve another God, in order to do good works, help children and build burn centers! As Albert Pike wants to promote, and has declared, that Lucifer (the god of Islam, and the god of the Masonic Lodge) is the "God of light and God of Good", and Adoney, the God the Christian faith, is the "God of Darkness, and Evil"!
IS LUCIFER THE GOD OF THE MASONIC LODGE?
The Anti-Masonic Political Party
Let me introduce you to Albert Pike!
Albert Pike (GRAND COMMANDER, SUPREME COUCIL 33° ANCIENT AND ACCEPTED SCOTTISH RITE OF FREEMASONRY, SOUTHERN JURISDICTION USA 1859 - 1891), the highest ranking Mason in his day, in "Morals and Dogma” Pg. 321, identifies Lucifer as "the Light-bearer."
(To view the entire book by President John Quincy Adams on Masonry Click Archives)
The short lived Anti-Masonic political party was birthed in 1828 with the purpose of eradicating the Lodge and the Lodge was almost brought to extinction in the U.S.
A Luciferian named Albert Pike, almost single-handedly, re-birthed the Lodge again in the U.S., and is the father of the current day Masonic Lodge! Pike also helped to start the Ku Klux Klan, an anti-negro group. As we all know, negroes cannot join the Masonic Lodge, and therefore started their own Lodge called "Prince Hall" Masonry! Masonry is "racism" in the worst form and continues to be racist today!
1 John 2:9
He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
1 John 3:15
Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
1 John 4:20
If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
The Freemason, a Masonic periodical in England, noted the reading of the following letter in its January 19, 1935, issue. Pike is quoted as giving this instruction to a council of very high level Freemasons in Paris France on July 14, 1889. (Leo Taxil)
"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)
God's word says in Isaiah 5:20 "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil, who put darkness for light, and light for darkness.”
Masonic scholar, Manly P Hall writes:
“When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of the 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 this energy. ("The Lost Keys to Freemasonry", p.48)
In Matt. 23:25-29, Jesus addresses the condition of the hearts of these men. Verse 28 says "you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness."
The initiate, from the first degree, is being indoctrinated unknowingly, in a search for "the light", which is finally revealed to be Lucifer as they prepare to swear the oath in the 33° ! The following is a quote from an e-mail debate I had with a 32° Mason. This man, who claimed to be a Christian, is now ready to make his 33° sworn oath to Lucifer as God, thinking that it is another name for Jesus:
Did you know that the ancient Christians also called Jesus lucifer? Bet you didn't. :-) I'll give you a hint. Consult the Latin translation of 2 Peter 1:19. You will see there that Peter speaks of lucifer arising in our hearts.
D. C. P., 32°, K.T.
Until the initiate has been indoctrinated to accept Lucifer "the light-bearer" as God, the initiate cannot go forward from the 32° to the 33°. At this point, they are convinced that Lucifer is NOT Satan! As you will note in Morals and Dogma, Albert Pike makes a strong argument that Satan, is man's "invention to explain evil" and should not be equated with Lucifer! He argues that Lucifer IS the one "who bears the light" and that Lucifer was the "light-bearer" to the non-Jewish nations before Christ! (Morals and Dogma pg 321)
“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)
This is the light of which the Masonic initiate is led to in his quest for "light" through the progressive rituals of the Lodge from one degree to the next, although he is not aware of the end of his quest in his early degrees as the secret society cannot reveal these secrets or true meaning of the symbols, until the initiate reaches the next or highest degrees.
Albert Pike writes: "The Blue Degrees are but the outer court or portico of the Temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the initiate, but he is intentionally mislead by false interpretations. It is NOT INTENDED that he shall understand them, but it is intended that he shall IMAGINE he understands them. (Pike, p 819)
VIDEO - SHRINER CLAIMS LUCIFER IS "PURE, VIRTUOUS, WHOLESOME AND INNOCENT"
On this 2 minute interview with a Shriner at the Southeastern Shriner's Convention in Chattanooga, TN the summer of 2007, this Shriner not only confesses that He is Lucifer, but he also adds that Lucifer is "Pure, Virtuous, Wholesome and Innocent!" Although they still confess that Jesus is the son of God, and claim to be "born again," these men declare that Lucifer is "good!"
IN response to this video, I received the following message from a Mason. He also claims to be a Christian!
Warning! The words he uses are very offensive! Click here
WHO IS THE LIGHT?
A candidate is blindfolded, a rope is put around his neck and led to the door of the lodge he knocks. A voice responds: "Who comes here?" The guide responds: Mr. (initiates name), who has long been in darkness, and now seeks to be brought to light..
Albert Pike claimed:
"...the true and pure philosophical religion is the BELIEF IN LUCIFER, THE EQUAL OF ADONAY but Lucifer, God of Light and God of GOOD..."
If the candidate is a Christian, he has just insulted Jesus who said in John 8:12 “I AM THE LIGHT of the world He who follows ME shall NOT walk in DARKNESS, but have the LIGHT OF LIFE"
** The end result of the Masonic Lodge, is that, the Lodge member has been deceived into believing that his good works will give him a grand entrance into the Kingdom of God. But look at the price he has paid to partake in these good works, he has bound himself under a devils blood oath of secrecy and obedience to the Lodge, exalted one another as Worshipful Masters, put his faith and trust in the Lodge, confessed the names of other gods, and never once gave glory to Jesus Christ for his good works, ALL in disobedience to Gods Word! In the end, Satan has won, by causing the Lodge member to disobey God's word again and again, yet thinking that the "end justifies the means", they have disobeyed and denied the living God in order to trust their Good works to save them!
Thus, Lucifer becomes the “God of Good and light” and Adonay (the Lord Jesus Christ) becomes the "God of Evil and darkness”! The "Light" they have found, which is salvation by "good works", is the darkness of deception!
The truth IS, that all of your good works which Satan has convinced you can save you, are but filthy rags to God! Without complete surrender to Jesus Christ as your Lord, and obedience to His word by forsaking the Lodge and its deception, you will all perish!
But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; ...
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
And being made perfect, he (Jesus) became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
The initiate continues to be deceived as he progresses in the Lodge and begins to partake in rituals that glorify a man named Hiram Abiff, a biblically disguised name for Lucifer!
The following letter on the page, Masonic Inner Fraternity is my conversation with a 32° Mason who knew he was serving Lucifer and he tells me he has been appointed by the Lodge to destroy Christian church's from within!
HIRAM ABIFF who is he?
Hiram Abiff is the Masonic "Christ Figure"! He is the "hero" idolized by every Mason as you will learn in the Hiram legend I will discuss next! In the scriptures, He is the King of Tyre (2 Chron 2:3,11) and in Ezekiel 28:12-19 we find that the King of Tyre is revealed as Lucifer himself.
Hiram Abiff, a Biblically disguised name for Lucifer, in the "Duncan's Ritual and Monitor", is glorified as the "greatest man in the world" (page 88) and on page 114 he is defined as "your Worshipful Grand Master". In pages 112-115, the Master Mason, or Third Degree candidate, places a curse upon himself by an oath as guilty for the death of Hiram.
Every Christian, by authority of the Lord Jesus Christ, is the destructive end of Lucifer! The light of Jesus Christ and truth, will destroy the darkness of Lucifer, his secrecy and lies!
Every Christian, who goes through this Master Mason ritual, is ritualistically REPENTING for destroying, or having anything to do with the destruction of Lucifer, and spiritually place themselves in agreement with Lucifer! You cannot serve TWO masters!
(Rom 16:20 KJV) And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly.
(Ezek 28:7-9 KJV)
Behold, therefore I will bring strangers (Christians) upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords (the Word of God) against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.
They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas.
Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.
The Mason, who now becomes possessed by this "Spirit of Hiram" through this ritual and oath which I will quote below, but not knowing it, begin to quench the power and presence of the Holy Spirit in their church's. Pastors (whom have not sold their soul to the Lodge) can feel the oppression when a Mason sits in the pew as he preaches, and he feels the hindrance of their spirit as though they are challenged by that spirit to proclaim the truth of the gospel, or even to rebuke the sins of the Masonic Lodge. There is a FEAR to confront Masons, by a demon spirit that has now taken them captive. Ask any Pastor who loves the Lord Jesus and has tried to confront the sins of the Masons in his church. You might try to confront a Mason, and you will learn exactly what I am speaking about!
I trust and believe that is why the presence and power of the Holy Spirit is forbidden in denominations that freely accept Masons into their congregations, and allow them into their pulpits as Elders, Deacons and Pastors! The Masonic devil infiltrating the church's, although they appear to be Christian outwardly, are actually working with the powers of darkness to drive the power and presence of the Holy Spirit out of God's church's, turning these church's into dead sepultures! These lifeless church's claim to know God, but they freely excuse sin and deny God's power to deliver one from sin. They refuse to believe in the power of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, that these gifts can operate in the church today, and they buy the excuse that the powers of these gifts passed away with the apostles. This anti-christ spirit drives the spirit of Christ out throwing the church into darkness!
They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
2 Tim. 3:4-5
In the Last days.....Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Every Christian who Takes the following oath puts himself under a curse when he proclaims:
"Oh! that my throat had been cut across, my tongue torn out by its roots, and buried in the rough sands of the sea ... ere I had been accessory to the death of so good a man as our Grand Mastor, Hiram Abiff." (Duncan's Ritual and Monitor page 112).
Then the Mason excersises a ritual of Raising Hiram Abiff FROM THE DEAD!
"K. S. -- You twelve Fellow Crafts will now go and assist in RAISING THE BODY." (page 116)
The ritual is SATANIC! Wherewith Jesus, the ONLY one to ever rise from the dead, has in this ritual, been replaced by the Lodge member with Lucifer through the name of Hiram Abiff! Needless to say, Hiram is not, nor was he "a good man"! He was, like all men, a sinful man. Jesus declared that there is "none good but God" and that "ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Matt. 19:17; Rom. 3:10,12, 23)
There is no evidence in scripture, that Hiram ever believed in the God of Israel (which has always been a requirment for salvation) and he may be in the very heart of Hell today as a sinful man whom never repented of his wicked deeds. Being a Gentile, Hiram most likely was a worshipper of pagan gods (idols)! There is no testimony in scripture that he converted to the Jewish faith!
The fabricated stories of the Lodge to glorify such a man, was skillfully designed to entice the Lodge member to exalt Lucifer through a name that they could not recognize as the very enemy of our souls himself! To blatantly use the name of Lucifer, would have run away many Lodge members in their earlier degrees long before they could ever be indoctrinated to accept that Lucifer is the "Light bearer" as Albert Pike declares!

MASONIC MYTH ON THE DEATH OF HIRAM
In Masonic ritual, the initiates are taught that Hiram was killed before he could finish building King Solomons Temple. They claim that Hiram possessed secrets by which they could "earn a Masters wage". Knowing that the Temple was near completion, 15 Fellow Crafts entered a conspiracy to gain these secrets or take his life. In refusing to give this "Masters Word", three "ruffians" named "Jubela, Jubelo, and Jubelum", killed Hiram. Hiram, they claim, is eventually buried near the "Holy of Holies" of the Temple. In the Master Mason (3rd degree) ritual, the Masonic initiate partakes in a ritual of raising Hiram from the dead using the secret grip of the Master Mason and the 5 points of fellowship while speaking a "substitute" word for the "lost Masters Word", which I will abreviate M__ H__ B__. (Duncans Ritual pages 119-123)
While many Masons actually believe this whole story to be true, I would like to end this myth with scripture! The scriptures declare that, 13 years after the Temple was completed, King Solomon gave Hiram 20 cities (it appears these cities were for payment or a bonus to Hiram for his work. Yet Hiram dispised them and was not pleased with this gift or payment)!
1 Kings 9:1
And it came to pass, when Solomon had finished the building of the house of the Lord, and the king's house, and all Solomon's desire which he was pleased to do,
1 Kings 9:10-12
And it came to pass at the end of twenty years, when Solomon had built the two houses, the house of the Lord, and the king's house,  (Now Hiram the king of Tyre had furnished Solomon with cedar trees and fir trees, and with gold, according to all his desire,) that then king Solomon gave Hiram twenty cities in the land of Galilee.  And Hiram came out from Tyre to see the cities which Solomon had given him; and they pleased him not.
(For those who wish to dig into this more, King Solomon began the building of the Temple in his 4th year of reign (1 Kng 6:1), and it was completed in the 11th year, which was 7 years in the building of it (1 Kngs 6:14, 37-38). At the end of 20 years (1 Kings 9:10), which is 13 years after the completion of the Temple, Solomon gives Hiram the cities)
Although the Temple was completed in 7 years, it then took another 13 years for Solomon to build his own house (1 Kng 7:1) 1 Kngs chapter 8 gives the detailed dedication ceremony for the Temple and in chapter 9 Solomon gives Hiram the cities as payment.
SO THEN, 13 years AFTER the temple was completed, Solomon gives Hiram 20 cities!
Sorry Hiram, I guess you didn't get your "Masters wage" you desired from Solomon!
(1 Kings 9:27 again makes mention of Hiram sending Navy servants to Solomon, long after the Temple was completed)
In the Masonic Ritual, the Lodge members play out the role of killing Hiram (who is played by one of their members). They then proceed in the ritual of raising him from the dead as the Hiram actor plays dead, then raised from the dead!
CAN YOU EVENGELIZE YOUR PERISHING MASON "BROTHERS"?
Let me ask you, CAN YOU PREACH the gospel of JESUS CHRIST AT YOUR MEETINGS? Can you tell your Muslim or Hindu "brother" that he MUST be born again by faith in Jesus Christ to enter heaven? (John 3:3)
Of course NOT, it's forbidden! Yet the scripture says:
(2 Tim 4:5 KJV) "... do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry."
As noted in Mr. Pikes witings, "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, Albert Pike)
Scripture condemns this theology by Albert Pike! Pike's doctrine. Masonry is similar to the cult called "Uniterianism", which teaches that ALL religions have the truth needed to be saved by doing good works! "We will ALL get to heaven by worshipping our own God, and doing good works!" But God declares that these false religions are temples of devils and that we should seperate ourselves from them! Those who worship other Gods, will be cast into the Lake of Fire!
2 Cor. 6:14-17
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?  And what concord hath Christ with Belial (Baal)? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
.... that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, ....  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
The sickness and Biblical error of the minds of these men in the Lodge, and their idolizing of the Lodge, has even convinced some of them that Jesus Christ himself, God the Son, went through these perverted rituals and joined the Lodge. Jesus the Freemason?
Its interesting to note, that the Lodge has been very influential, as a major player in removing the gospel from our nation! Quoted from the Wilkipedia Encyclopedia web site:
"While Freemasonry as an organisation does not directly involve itself in politics, its members have tended over the years to support certain kinds of political causes with which they have become associated: the separation of church and state, the replacement of religiously-affiliated schools with secular public schools, and democratic revolutions." (Wikipedia Encyclopedia)
THE "POINT WITHIN THE CIRCLE"
What does it mean? Albert Mackay, 33° explains its deeper meaning:
“The point within the circle is an...important symbol in Freemasonry, but it has been debased in the lectures (given in lodges) that the sooner that the interpretation is forgotten by the Masonic student, the better will it be. The symbol is really a beautiful but somewhat abstruse allusion to the OLD SUN-WORSHIP, and introduces us for the first time to the modification of it, known among the ANCIENTS AS THE WORSHIP OF THE PHALLUS. (Albert Mackey, The Manual of the Lodge, Clark Maynard Co., New York, 1870, p. 156)
Webster's Dictionary defines "Phallus" - “A representation or image of the penis as the reproductive organ, worshipped as a symbol of generative power, as in the Dionysiac festivals of ancient Greece.
The Washington Monument, built by the masons, in truth, is an obscenity and idol of pagan worship! You will find this obscenity over many graves of deceased masons, who, although they claimed to be Christian, forsook the cross and traded it in for an obelisk!
The Obelisk in the Bible is called “Asherah” in Hebrew, the KJV uses the word “groves”!
For a deeper study with photos and Biblical history of the symbol, click Obelisk.
OSIRIS AND ISIS
The initiation rites and rituals of the Masonic Lodge come from the ancient Egyptian pagan gods Osiris and Isis. Osiris and Isis is a Romeo and Juliet type legend in which Osiris is cut into pieces and his lover Isis searches and finds all of his pieces except his genital organ. Without this part, she could not restore him to life. The story is symbolized in the “Hiramic Legend.”
Albert Pike makes mention of Osiris and Isis on p.476 (Morals and Dogmas) We have therefore, in the 24th degree (Masonic Ritual), recited the principal incidents in the legend of Osiris and Isis …
On page 22 he writes: “Masonry, successor of the Mysteries, STILL FOLLOWS the ancient manner of teaching. Her ceremonies are like the ANCIENT MYSTIC SHOWS.”
Then Albert Mackey writes: “.. the secret worship of the pagan gods. Each of the pagan gods had besides the public and open, A SECRET WORSHIP paid to him, to which none were admitted but those who had been selected by PREPARATORY CEREMONIES CALLED INITIATION.” (Albert Mackey, Mackey's Revised Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, p.497)
Admittedly, the very initiation into the Masonic lodge, according to Albert Mackey 33°, and its symbols, touches the ceremonies of ancient pagan worship.
Shown below, is the pentagram of the Order of the Eastern Star (O.E.S.), and the same pantagram of Satanism (the Baphomet also known as the Goat of Mendes)! Notice any similarities?
Order of the Eastern Star! Baphomet of Satanism and Witchcraft!
Another symbol is the Sun (Osiris). In the Temple, the Lodge members face east to worship the Sun-God "On" identified in the square and compass with a capital "G". Higher degree masons (or Past Worshipful Masters) get the emblem with the Sun God (Osiris) instead of the "G", showing Osiris himself.
These symbols shown, the later two which were on the car of a Mason, replaces the Sun God "Osiris" in the place of the "G", identifying the God of freemasonry! Albert Pike reveals what they are: "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" (Morals and Dogma, pg 476-477)
The scriptures reveal that these men in the Lodge, who face to the East in their Lodges (Temples), are acting out the same abominations as the men of Judah who were commiting idolatry in God's house in Old Testament times!
And he brought me into the inner court of the Lord's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the SUN toward the east.
 Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here?
The All-Seeing Eye of Osiris in the Lodge!
Another symbol is the white apron, which covers the Lodge members private parts, even as Adam and Eve covered themselves with leaves to cover their shame and nakendness. It is symbolic of MAN'S attempt to hide his sins by his OWN good works, rather than trusting Jesus! It is, according to the scriptures, the blood of Jesus Christ that removes our shame, not an apron with pagan symbols of foreign God's sown on!
THE BLUE DEGREE MASON HAS BEEN WILLFULLY DECEIVED BY ITS HIGHER RANKING MEMBERS!
The Bible never calls God "the Great Architect of the Universe”, He is the CREATOR, and His name is JESUS!
Albert Pike writes: "The Blue Degrees are but the outer court or portico of the Temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the initiate, but he is intentionally mislead by false interpretations. It is NOT INTENDED that he shall understand them, but it is intended that he shall IMAGINE he understands them. (Pike, p 819)
How do you like being intentionally LIED to! Do you REALLY know what the symbols you wear and stick on your car or your lapel mean? For example Tubal-Cain (the putter with two golf balls) is a joke on you. It's a “2 ball cane” with a strong sexual connotation.
1 Corinthians 10:21 "You cannot partake of the Lord's table and the table of demons”
Ever wonder what this symbol means on the back of your Dollar Bill? It actually shows how high the Masonic Lodge actually goes past the 32 degree!
THE MASONIC LURE!
The Masonic Lodge can make you rich as they purpose to favor each other and do business with one another! The "Fraternal" brothers are obligated by oath to help one another in every way! It has a "Form of Godliness" and an appearance of "Good Works". Leave the Masonic Lodge, and these "Good men" will threaten, slander and bankrupt the former member and destroy his reputation! They don't have the mind of Christ, but the evil wisdom of the world (James 3:14:18)
Luke 12:3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
Here are some e-mails sent from some of these "moral, upstanding, good men" after reading this web page! Their responses are often short and "to the point!" They don't mind the fact that their resposes are offensive to the living God! The "secretpal" address appears to be a common, hidden e-mail address set up by the Lodge that cannot be responded to. It appears to be used by various Masons who wish to remain "secret" so they can make noise without getting a response. It's the cowards way out! They rarely give their name! I respect the few that give me their name and are willing to reason together and will allow me to write back and contend with their error!

The Masonic initiate cannot mention the name of Jesus to his Muslim fraternal brother! But be warned:
THE MASON MAY AQUIRE RICHES, BUT HE WILL LOSE HIS OWN SOUL!
Mark 8:34-38 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
THE MASON MAY APPEAR GODLY, BUT HE IS A TRAITOR!
(2 Tim 3:2 -5 KJV) For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
THE MASON APPEARS BEAUTIFUL OUTWARDLY, BUT INWARDLY HE IS UNCLEAN!
(Mat 23:27-28 KJV) Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
Don't be deceived by the "outward appearance" of the Shriner with the crippled boy photos and the Shriner hospitals, which are only a coverup to their wicked deeds done behind closed doors!
THE MASON CLAIMS FELLOWSHIP WITH THOSE WHO WORSHIP THE DEVIL!
2 Cor. 6:14-17 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
And what concord hath Christ with Belial (Baal)? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel (unbeliever)?
And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
Albert Pike writes "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 & Dogma pg 226, Albert Pike)
The Muslim worships the Meccan moon god idol, "Allah!" The Hindu worships 300,000,000 million idol gods! Yet the Christian Mason, forbidden by oath to evangelize his fellow Mason, disregards the scripture by fellowshipping with "Unbelievers, unrighteousness, darkness, Belial or Baal, idols!" The scripture says you MUST come out from among them and be separate! Your allegiance should be to Jesus Christ and your Christian Church ... NOT the Masonic Lodge!
IF YOU WISH TO SUPPORT A HOSPITAL, BUILD OR SUPPORT A CHRISTIAN ONE!
In June, 1986, a daily newspaper in Florida, the Orlando Sentinel published a report on the Shrine hospital program. 98% of the money the Shriners raise in these circuses wasn't going to the hospitals. It went to the Shriners for their parties. Ninety-eight percent went to their little cars and their little boats and their temples, their little hats and stuff. Two percent went to the hospitals.
The Orlando Sentinel writes "Estimates from available records also show that Shrine hospitals in 1984 received just 1 percent, or $182,000, of an estimated $17.5 million in profits from about 175 Shrine circuses. Only one of the 76 temples for which IRS records were available reported contributing any circus money to the hospital system." (to read the full article click here)
If you would like to know where your "Shriner" money is going, look at their "Shrines" (Temples), Harley Davidsons, go carts, jewlery, and the cars they drive! Are they any different than the covetous prosperity preachers that use an honorable and charitable cause in order to fatten their own pocketbook?
FREEMASONRY IS A SATANIC CULT! REPENT AND GET OUT NOW!
What in the world are you doing in the Masonic Lodge?
Have you really researched to find out what you are involved with? IGNORANCE is No excuse when you stand before the throne of God. According to Albert Pike and Albert Mackey, you are in training to be LUCIFER'S disciple. Even Aleister Crowley a master SATANIST and antichrist, was a Mason (Masonry Beyond the Light page 204).
William Schnoebelen (former 32° Mason now Christian), as a former witch, was encouraged to become a Mason in order to perfect his witchcraft! http://www.withoneaccord.org/
The only way to break the curse of your oath, is to REPENT! Ask the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive you, and get OUT! Stop paying your dues, destroy your Mason symbols and literature!
By oath, the fellow Mason can murder (see footnote at bottom) another Mason who leaves the Lodge. Yet, Jesus said "Do not fear them!"
Mat 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
The Masonic Lodge is truly and knowingly deceiving you. You are obligated to do your own research to find out what you are part of!
"For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink IN MY NAME, because you belong to Christ, assuredly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward." (Mark 9:41)
Don't let Freemasonry receive the glory for your good deeds! In heaven, there are no rewards for your good deeds done in the name of Freemasonry. Jesus gets ALL the GLORY! Period
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”
Every Mason who takes the blood oath has placed his family under a curse! If you repent, Jesus will break the curse by HIS blood!
I have met many Masons through the years whom have testified of tragic and horrible deaths in their immediate family!
Please don't stop here! Dig deeper at this web site for more detailed knowledge about FREEMASONRY
For more information read:
"Freemasonry" by Jack Harris (former Worshipful Master) 1983, Whitaker House, 30 Hunt Valley Circle, New Kensington, PA 15068.
Footnote on Masonic murders: A detailed description of the kidnapping and execution of Captain William Morgan was recorded by Rev. Charles Finney in the book The Character, Claims and Practical Workings of Freemasonry, written in 1879, copyrighted, sold and transferred to the Ezra A. Cook and Co. in Chicago, Illinois, March 14,1879. The book is available in the Library of Congress in Wash. D.C. (Also found in "Freemasonry" by Jack Harris pg 116-128)
After Morgans murder, 45,000 Masons quit the Lodge. The Masonic Lodge almost disappeared at this time.
President John Quincy Adams, President of the U.S from 1825-1829 also referenced the Murder of Morgan in a speech where he spoke out against the Masonic Lodge! President Adams speech gives the complete details of the conspiracy of 6 Lodges and 69 Masons, some in high ranking governmental positions in State and Military offices, working together for the planned execution of one of their own members who revealed the secrets of the Lodge.
"A more perfect agent for the devising and execution of conspiracies against church or state could scarcely have been conceived."
"Freemasons, so far from thinking themselves to be violating, were literally following the injunction which they felt to be laid upon them in their oaths. The law of Masonry was to them more than that of civil government or of the Deity, even when it was known directly to conflict with them." "The men who actually participated in the murder have gradually dropped off (disappeared by help of foreign Masons), until it may be said that not a single individual remains within the United States. But they lived and died secure from every danger of legal punishment. The oath of Masonry came in conflict with the duty to society and to God, and succeeded in setting it aside."
Masons are still willing to kill today to guard their dark secrets.
Masons are running Pastors out of the pulpit when they speak out against Freemasonry!
Here is an excellent Sermon preached by a Pastor to his congregation when he resigned from the Lodge!
The Masonic Lodge boasts in Pastors who would perfer to leave the Christian church than resign from the lodge! On this Masonic web page, they give testimony to such a man, a Methodist Pastor Moses F. Shinn, who left the ministry to embrace the Masonic Lodge!
