Cutting Edge Ministries received an urgent email from a person purporting to be a 32nd Degree Freemason. He was unhappy with the manner in which we characterized the God whom Freemasons worship. Let us begin with his email. As he did not sign it, it is not a problem protecting his identity.
"QUOTE FROM YOUR WEBSITE: "Freemasonry requires that it's members confess a belief in a supreme being. Any one will do!"
"If your going to make a Statements about something your Not a Part of, At least make sure your Information is Correct. this is False, and misleading. First and foremost, a freemason Must confess his faith in GOD that's what the G stands for, No dimi-God, or anti-God or other form of worship of a God is excepted. It's the Same christen God you believe in...."
"I am a 32 degree freemason. and I find it humorous that You Bible thumpers are so busy Looking for faults in Others, just so you can promote your views as truth or divine. Oh ye hollow souls looking to be filled, Just rember that the one eyed man is King among the blind. If it wasn't for the FreeMasons, King David wouldn't have had his Temple. tons of biblical accounts would have never accurred."
"So Good luck in your quest for truth, if thats what you seek... but please do not slander things you obiviously do not know, or understand...."
Let us begin our rebuttal with his statement: '... a freemason Must confess his faith in GOD that's what the G stands for, No dimi-God, or anti-God or other form of worship of a God is excepted. It's the Same christen God you believe in...."
Read carefully now about "God" from Masonic authors.
Albert Pike -- Morals & Dogma -- Books still taught in many Lodges -- not all, but many. Further, Albert Pike is greatly honored with many quotes from "Morals & Dogma" in the 1949 "Masonic Holy Bible Edition, Cyclopedic Indexed", Manufactured by The John A. Hertekl Co., Chicago. This Bible is on my bookshelf.
Listen to Albert Pike speak about the God whom Freemasons worship:
1) "This is the real idea of the Ancient Nations: GOD, the Almighty Father and Source of All. HIS THOUGHT, conceiving the whole Universe, and willing in its creation; His Word, uttering that Thought and thus becoming the Creator or Demiourgos, in whom was Life and Light ... " (Page 575, 26th Degree)
Thus, the Masonic 'God' is the "real idea of the Ancient Nations" -- not the God of the Holy Bible. Later Pike affirms that this God is not the God of the Bible when he says that "Masonry is identical with the Ancient Mysteries" (Page 624, 28th Degree). These are the pagan Mysteries religions which the God of the Bible brought into judgment and destroyed in the Old Testament.
2) "God indwells all matter" -- (Page 710, 28th Degree). This is Hinduism, as the Bible teaches God is separate and above His creation.
3) "God is as man perceives Him, different for each man." (Page 223, 14th Degree) I was right, wasn't I, in the statement to which this Mason took such objection, above! What was it I did say? I said, ""Freemasonry requires that it's members confess a belief in a supreme being. Any one will do!"
Masonry teaches that Satan and God are equal but opposite! "The true name of Satan, the Kabalists say, is that of Yahveh reversed; for Satan is not a black god, but the negation of God ... For the Initiates, this is not a Person, but a Force ... they represent this Force ... under the mythologic and horned form of the God Pan." (Page 102, 3rd Degree)
If this is all new to this Mason, this next segment tells you why he is so badly misinformed.
4) "Truth is close at hand, is forced to disguise it, to induce the multitudes to accept it ... Fictions are necessary to the people." (Page 102, 3rd Degree)
Lest you think Pike is advocating lying only to non-Masons, read this quote: "Masonry, like all the Mysteries, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts or Sages and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled; to conceal the Truth from them ... and draw them away from it all." (Page 104, 3rd Degree)
Who are the Adepts and Sages to whom the truth is finally revealed? The members of the Invisible Lodge -- People like this Mason, who attain a high ranking in the Visible Lodge, will likely never be told the truth. Read revered Masonic author, Manly P. Hall, reveal this fact in "TWO ORGANIZATIONS, ONE VISIBLE, THE OTHER INVISIBLE".
Now, let us get back to the "God" whom Masons really
worship: They worship Nature generally and the Sun particularly!
5) "Masonry propagates no creed except its own most simple and Sublime One: that universal religion, taught by Nature and by Reason ... It extracts the good and not the evil, the truth and not the error, from all creeds." (Page 718, 28th Degree) -- Again I was right. It matters not which 'God' a person worships, because Masonry is a "universal religion".
Now, listen as Pike describes Sun Worship.
6) "The Sun and Moon of the Alchemists concur in perfecting and giving stability to the Philosopher's Stone. They correspond to the two columns of the Temple, Jachin and Boaz. The Sun is the hieroglyphical sign of Truth." (Page 776, 28th Degree)
Since the Holy Bible states that Jesus Christ is God (John 1:1-14, for example), if "G" stands for "God", then Masons should revere Jesus and teach the same about Him as does the Bible. Sadly, this is not the case! Masonry teaching blasphemes the true Nature of Jesus Christ.
Listen to what Pike teaches:
Can you imagine this blasphemy? Jesus was created by the Serpent-Spirit? That spirit is Lucifer. You should not be surprised by this evidence of Lucifer worship, for we quote Pike, above, as revering the Kabala, believing in Alchemy, worshipping nature and the sun, deliberately lying, teaching the Philosopher's Stone, saying that Masonry is identical to the Mysteries Religions, and calling God a "Force" -- all strong proofs of Satanism!
Jesus came from an inferior line of Beings, created by the Serpent-Spirit, Ialdabaoth, who had been created by the god Buthos, who had sexually united with the goddess, Wisdom. (Page 563, 26th Degree)
(Daniel 11:38 - "But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces"
Now, let us get to the bottom of what the "G" really stands for: "Jesus received wisdom from Gnosis." (Page 563, 26th Degree)
The Apostles Paul and Peter rail against the Gnostics in numerous
New Testament books. Gnosticism separates the Divine Jesus from the human,
one of the Biblical prophecies of Antichrist. "For many deceivers are
entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh.
This is a deceiver and an antichrist." (2 John 1:7)
"And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist..." (1 John 4:3)
Hearing From Other Masonic Authors
Now, let us examine other Masonic authors who say the same thing
as Albert Pike, since one of the great modern lies is that Pike does not speak
Albert Mackey, 33rd Degree, states in his monumentally important, "Encyclopedia of Freemasonry" -- "So, too, we find Gnostic symbols in the Hermetic Philosophy and in the system of Rosicrucianism and lastly, many of the symbols still used by Freemasonry -- such as, for instance, the triangle within a circle, the letter 'G' and the pentacle of Solomon, have been traced to a Gnostic source." (Page 300, 1927 edition)
Therefore, your contention that the letter 'G' means "God" is shown to be utterly wrong. You are one of the Masons to whom the truth cannot be entrusted, so you have been lied to as to the real meanings of your own symbols.
Now, let us go back to your exception to my statement that a Mason can worship any "God" he chooses -- "any one will do". Listen to Albert Mackey again:
"The religion of Masonry is cosmopolitan, universal; but the required belief in God is not incompatible with this universality; for it is the belief of all peoples. 'Be assured', says Godfrey Higgins, '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." (Page 301)
If you wanted to worship the God of the Bible, and your fellow Mason wanted to worship another "God", he certainly could!! Official Masonry prides itself on being exceedingly "tolerant" and "broad-minded"!
Listen to another Masonic legend about the meaning of the letter
"G which Freemasons place in the center of the Burning Star signifies Gnosis and Generation, the two sacred words of the ancient Kabbalah. It also signifies Grand Architect, for the Pentagram, from whatever side it may be looked at, always represents an 'A'. By placing it in such a manner that two of its points are above and only one below, we may see the horns, ears, and beard of the hieratic god of Mendes (Baphomet) when it becomes the sign of infernal evocations." (Masonic author, Eliphas Levi, quoted by Masonic author, Arthur Edward Waite, "The Mysteries of Magic: A Digest of the Writings of Eliphas Levi", 1909, p.205).
Domenico Margiotta, a 33rd Degree Mason, reveals this about the Palladium Rite. Notice he speaks of Adonay, the God of the Holy Bible.
"Palladism is necessarily a Luciferian rite. Its religion is Manichaean neo-gnosticism, teaching that the divinity is dual, and that Lucifer is the equal of Adonay, with Lucifer the God of Light and Goodness, struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of Darkness and Evil .. Albert Pike had only specified and unveiled the dogmas of the high grades of all other Masonries, for in no matter what rite, the Great Architect of the Universe is not the God worshipped by the Christians."
Did you notice this revelation from Domenico Margiotta, a 33rd Degree Mason? "... no matter what rite, the Great Architect of the Universe is not the God worshipped by the Christians."
Masonic Leaders Taught To Deliberately Lie!
Listen to Pike explain the "necessity" of lying:
Lying: "Religion, to obtain currency and
influence with the great mass of mankind, must needs be alloyed with such
an amount of error ..." (Page 224, 14th Degree)
More lying: "Masonry jealously guards its secrets and intentionally leads conceited interpreters astray." (Page 105, 3rd Degree)
Still more lying: "We teach the truth of none of the legends we recite." (Page 329, 20th Degree)
Incredible Lying: "The tendencies and tenets of the Order were enveloped in mystery, and it externally professed the most perfect orthodoxy. The chiefs alone know the aim of the Order. The Templars, like all other Secret Orders and Associations, had two doctrines, one concealed and reserved for the Masters and the other public. Thus they deceived the adversaries whom they sought to supplant." (Page 817, 30th Degree)
Last False Allegation To Be Investigated
"If it wasn't for the FreeMasons, King David wouldn't have had his Temple. tons of biblical accounts would have never accurred."
Listen to this most pertinent quote from a brand new pro-Masonic book. "The Freemason: Unlocking the 1000-year mysteries of the Brotherhood - The Masonic rituals, codes, signs and symbols explained", by Jeremy Harwood, Annes Publishing, Ltd., 2006, p. 18.
"The legend of Hiram Abif , the Master architect of King
Solomon's Temple, is one of the central allegories in Freemasonry. His murder
at the hands of three of his subordinate craftsman for refusing to reveal
the secrets of Master Masonry, and his subsequent rebirth, described as his
rise from 'a deal level' to a 'living perpendicular', is a key part of the
ritual that marks the progress of a Mason from the Second to the Third Degree..."
"The legend became part of Freemasonry between 1723 and 1738. It is clearly not history -- it is a ritualistic drama, actually played out in the lodge during the process of Third Degree initiation, in which the candidate plays the part of Hiram Abif . Through their participation in the ritual, candidates learn how the soul can rise above its internal enemies -- ignorance, lust, passion, and sin -- so that they can become masters of themselves and their destinies."
"According to the great Masonic scholar, Albert Mackey, the legend of Hiram Abif was borrowed from what scholars term the Ancient Mysteries of early Egypt, Mesopotamia and Rome. This is described in Dr. Albert Mackey's Manual of the Lodge, in which he argues that there is no biblical evidence that such a character ever existed and met his death in such a way. Rather than being part of any biblical tradition, Abif is the representative of the gods Osiris, Baal, and Bacchus."
Did you catch the pertinent official quote which gives the lie to the statement of this 32nd Degree Mason?
"This is described in Dr. Albert Mackey's Manual of the Lodge, in which he argues that there is no biblical evidence that such a character ever existed and met his death in such a way. Rather than being part of any biblical tradition, Abif is the representative of the gods Osiris, Baal, and Bacchus."
How about that? Mackey not only says that the legends of Masonry -- especially the legend of Hiram Abiff, the supposed chief architect for King Solomon's Temple -- are not really in the Bible. Not only that, but these legends are from "the gods Osiris, Baal, and Bacchus." In fact, I believe Hiram Abif is Antichrist. What does prophecy say about Antichrist dying and being resurrected?
"And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast?" (Rev 13:3-4)
"And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed." (Rev 13:12; NOTE: This second beast is the False Prophet)
Freemasonry is not only NOT Christian, it is Baal worship!
Manly P. Hall -- Eulogized by the Scottish Rite Journal after he died in 1990 as the "greatest of all Masonic philosophers".
"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 handle energy." [Manly P. Hall, The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, p. 124; Emphasis added]
Hmm, so Masons worship Lucifer? Amazing!!
Listen to the pertinent quote again: " The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands".
This anguished email from a 32nd Degree Mason reveals the depth to which Masonry lies to its own loyal members, and in the Visible Lodge, that lying goes all the way to the top!
This spiritual blindness is simply awful, but does signify the manner in which deception has taken hold of the hearts and minds of men during these End Times. Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
You can contact us by mail or email.
God bless you.
