In John 4:1 there is a command to all Christians: "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try [test] the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world." In other words, any false religious teaching that does not conform to Scripture is from a false prophet.
Most of the articles on Freemasonry in this particular study have been taken from Masonic books that have been published by Masonic Publishing Companies, and most of them were formerly very, very secret. Two important things need to be remembered about Masonry before you began this comprehensive study:
Too many times, Masons and Christians get into an endless exchange of e-mails trying to convince each other they are right: Masons argue that the information that is presented about their organization is totally false and usually end their argument with the statement, "I have neve seen anything like that at my Lodge!" Well, there is a very sinister reason for that. The reason why these Masons have never seen anything like what I am divulging in this study is because the Masonic Fraternity consists of two organizations, one visible and one invisible!
The power and influence over world affairs exercised by the Invisible Fraternity of Freemasons is enourmous, and has largely succeeded in remaining almost invisible to the average person on the street. The Invisible Fraternity is no more than 5% of all Masons, which means that 95% of all Masons are totally unaware of the inner secret Cadre. Most of the books that were quoted for this study are from the Invisible Fraternity, but this is the fraternity thtat is Satanic to the core, and it is secretly directing the Visible Fraternity.
In this study on Freemasonry, it will be demonstrated to you that Freemasonry uses many of the same filthy occult symbols that Satanists use. Satanism uses the same symbols as Freemasonry; since Satanism goes back 4,000 years and Freemasonry only about 300, you will be able to easily see that Freemasonry has gotten most of its symbols from Satanism.
Finally, if you do not recognize some of the occult interpretations of some Masonic/Satanic symbols, remember that you have been given false interpretations of those symbols, just as Masonic Author Albert Pike directed: "Masonry, like all the Religions, all the Mysteries, Hermeticism, and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be mislead; to conceal the Truth, which it calls light, and draw them away from it." [Morals and Dogma, p. 104-5, 3rd Degree]
I am imploring you to please, take the time to read this extensive study on the truth of Freemasonry so you may finally know the Truth of Jesus Christ, the God of the Universe which Masons contemptuously call an "inferior god," and Whom they never, ever mention in their teachings or their rituals. I fervently pray that the Holy Spirit will illuminate (no pun intended!) your mind, heart, and soul with the knowledge of the true God , and only the true God of the Holy Bible!
Sexual Connotations To Masonic Symbols
Under the influence of the Holy Spirit, the Apostle Paul gave mankind the perfect definition of the word, pagan. In Romans 1:25, the Apostle Paul said a pagan is someone "who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen." Pagans have worshipped animals, insects, birds, rivers, forests, trees, and many other things, but they all share one type of worship in common: they worship the sex act between man and woman, and they worship both the male penis and the woman's vulva.
Freemasons do this very thing; however they differ from the Satanist in that they hide much of the sexual content in many of their symbols. We quoted Carl Claudy, above, as he says that Masonry has layers upon layers of meanings for the very same symbol, and you have to just keep digging until you get them all. You will be shocked to know that sexual connotations have been assigned to many of the symbols that are most commonly used in the Fraternity, and for which other meanings [completely nonsexual] have been taught to the lower level Mason. Get ready to get shocked.
Sex In The "G"
The letter "G" figures prominently in Freemasonry. In the lower degrees, the initiate is told that this letter stands for "God" and for "Geometry," which the Supreme Architect of the Universe used to design this wonderful Cosmos. However, occultist, and 33rd Degree Mason, Arthur Waite, quotes Eliphas Levi [also 33rd Degree], telling us that the letter "G" stands for Venus, and that Venus' symbol is a lingam, a stylized phallis. [Masonic author, Arthur Edward Waite, The Mysteries of Magic: A Digest of the Writings of Eliphas Levi, Chicago, DeLaurence, Scott and Company; 1909, p. 217]
The greatest Masonic author of all time, Albert Pike, agrees. He states [page 631-32 in Morals and Dogma] that the Monad [#1] is male, and the Duad [#2] is female. Their sexual union produces the Triad [#3], which is "represented by the letter 'G,' the generative principle." This term, generative principle, is code for the sex act.
Sex Act In Columns
Both Freemasonry and the Eastern Star utilize the broken column, a symbol which contains many levels of meanings. The initiate is told that the broken column signifies an early death. Later on, the Mason learns that columns represent gods. [Joseph Fort Newton, The Builders: A Story and Study of Masonry, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, The Torch Press, 1914, p.9]
However, later on, the Mason learns a different, hidden meaning for the broken column. "In Egyptian Mythology, Isis is sometimes pictured weeping over the broken column, which conceals the body of her husband, Osiris, while behind her stands Horus, or Time, pouring ambrosia over her hair." Isis was both virgin and mother, so the beautiful virgin is Isis weeping. The broken column is the missing member of Osiris, the Phallus." [Short Talk Bulletin, "The Broken column", Feb., 1956, p.6-7; also Edmond Ronayne, The Master's Carpet (Mah-Hah-Bone), 1879, p.387-88, and several other Masonic authors]
You can see Isis weeping over the broken column, above, while Horus, or Time, is standing behind her. Horus is poven to be another name for Satan, and Isis is the consort of Lucifer. What is Isis weeping over? She has just lost her husband, Osiris, whose body was dismembered, including his penis, which had been cut into many sections. Albert Pike wrote about Isis and Osiris, saying that they were "the Active and Passive Principles of the Universe...commonly symbolized by the generative parts of man and woman..." [Morals and Dogma, p.401]
In seeing how a broken column could represent both the male and female part, you must focus on the bottom, not the top. The bottom of the column shows the phallic upright column inserted into the circular base, which is the symbol of the female vulva. The column is broken, of course, to symbolize the belief that Osiris' penis had been cut into many sections.
But Albert Mackey, 33 Degree Masonic author, states that the regular column is a phallus symbol. "The Phallus was an imitation of the male generative organ. It was represented usually by a column, which was surrounded by a circle at the base. [Mackey, A Manual of the Lodge, 1870, p.56. Mackey also stated this in The Symbolism of Freemasonry, p.60]
Sex In The Obelisk Within A Circle
Now, consider the obelisk, depicted here by the Washington Mounument, probably the most famous of all the obelisks in the world. Satanists believe that the spirit of the Egyptian Sun God, Ra, resides within the obelisk, and they pray to it daily three times a day, if possible, and facing East. The obelisk is the most recognized of all phallic symbols.
When the obelisk is depicted within the circle, the Satanists are depicting the sex act between male and female. In Washington, D.C., the Washington Monument is sitting within a circle. Freemasonry planned, designed, and created the Washington Monument. The obelisk is greately revered in Masonry, as a quick tour of any cemetery in New England will tell you. You can immediately tell which graves are Masonic by the obelisks as their headstone; now, not all Masons choose the obelisk as their headstone, but it is very rare that you never see a person who was not a Mason choose an obelisk as their headstone.
The Yin And Yang Symbol
Yin and Yang is one of the most commonly used symbols today, including logos of many organizations and companies. "Yin and yang are considered to be opposites. Yin represents eternity, dark, feminine, left side of the body, etc. Yang is opposite, and represents history, light, masculine, right side of the body, etc." [Philip G. Zimbardo and Floyd L. Ruch, Psychology and Life, 1977, Ninth Edition, p. 317]
Yang is male, positive, and represented by the Sun. Yin is female, negative, and represented by the moon." [Paul E. Desautels, The Gem Kingdom, p. 237]
The symbol itself dates back at least to the fourth centruy, B.C., and has been identified with the Eastern philosophical religions of Confucianism, buddhim, and Taoism. In the Western world, it has long been adopted into the symbolism of myth, magic, astrology and witchcraft." [Claire Chambers, The SIECUS Circle: A Humanist Reevolution, 1977, p. v]
"Another ancient magical sign called the yin-and-yang first appeared sometime before the 3rd century, B.C., in China. This emblem became the favorite of sorcerers and mystics throughout the Orient because it, too, embodies so many possible meanings." [Gary Jennings, Black Magic, White Magic, The Dial Press, 1964, p.50]
Does Freemasonry adopt and use the symbolism of Yin/Yang? Yup, but in a way as to hide the meaning from the "profane." Listen to Albert Pike. The black and white squares on Masonic floors symbolizes "the Good and Evil, principles of the Egyptian and Persian creed. It is the warfare of Michael and Satan...light and shadow, which is darkness; Day and Night, Freedom and Despotism..." [Morals and Dogman, p. 14]
I had always wondered about the distinctive black and white squares on Masonic floors, as depicted on George Washington's here. Now you know they represent the extremely Satanic concept of Yin and Yang, the "favorite of sorcerers." Masons also use two triangles joined together to represent Yin and Yang. Therefore, their depiction of the Hexagram also depicts Yin and Yang.
However, Masonry also teaches standard Satanic lore about the Yin and Yang symbol. Listen: "Thus the monad [#1] and the duad [#2] were teh phallus and kteis of the Greeks, the lingam and yoni of the Hindoos (sic)...and the Yang and Yin of the chinese..." [George Oliver, The Historical Landmarks and Other Evidences of Freemasonry, New York, John W. Leonard and Company, 1855, p. 118]
The Yin and Yang symbol is also used to represent bisexuality and homosexuality within today's New Age Movement. It is also used to depict Divination [Dr. C. Burns, Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated, p. 19-22]. Do not be deceived: Freemasonry depicts Yin and Yang a little differently than a traditional New Age, or occultist, or Satanist. They use the hexagram and the black and white tile floors; but, their belief in Yin and Yang is IDENTICAL to the Satanist Mysteries. But, why should anyone be suprised, for Albert Pike told us that Freemasonry is "identical to the Mysteries."
Square And Compass Depicting Sex
Masonic authors boldly state the symbolism of the traditional square and compass of Freemasonry represents the heterosexual act. Listen to Albert Pike explaining this fact to members of the 32nd Degree. "The Compass, therefore, is the Hermetic Symbol of the Creative Deity, and the Square of the productive Earth or Universe." [Morals and Dogma, P. 850-1] Therefore, the Masons look at the compass as the male phallus and the square as the female vulva. As you look at the Masonic Emblem here, you can see the obvious penetration of the female square point by the points of the Compass. One point of difference here is that the Satanist generally reverses the sex roles of the Compass and the Square. However, whichever way you look at it, the Compass and the Square are thought of as depicting the heterosexual sex act.
Sex And The Masonic Gavel
"The gavel is an important Masonic and Eastern Star symbol." [Dr. C. Burns, Masonic and Occult Symbols, p.326]
The First thing I noticed about the symbol of the gavels is that they werealways depicted upside down. I would have thought they would have been depicted with the head of the gavel at the top. However, we are not thinking like a pagan, who worships sex in all forms, and never lets an opportunity slip by him to depict the great sex act.
Masonic author, George Oliver, says that in ancient times, the gavel referred to the hammer of the God Thor [Oliver, Signs and Symbols, Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply Co., 1906, p. 14]. We know that Thor is an ancient pagan god, one whom Freemasons worship. In fact, Thor is part of the pagan Trinity in Scandinavia [Pike, Morals and Dogma, p. 552; also W.L. Wilmshurst, The Masonic Initiation, Trismegistus Press, 1980, p. 92]
However, Albert Pike makes identification of Thor very easy for us, as he states, on page 15 of Morals and Dogma, that Thor is another name for Sirius, the Blazing Star or the Pentagram. On page 381, Pike also tells us that Thor WAS the Sun, the Egyptian Osiris, and Kneph, the Phoenician Bel or Baal. The Bible tells us that worshipping Baal is identical to worshipping the Devil [1 Kings 16:30-33, 22:53; 2 Kings 17:16]. God condemned Baal worship, slaughtered the priests of Baal, and finally abolished it altogether in Israel. Yet, here, Freemasonry boldly states that they revere him.
But, let us get back to the subject at hand, i.e., sexual connotations of Masonic symbols. Masonic author, J.S.M Ward states, "Thus we see that the hammer or gavel, and the Tau, were originally the same, and this is a natural evolution of symbols, for the Tau Cross is evolved from the Phallus, and that is the symbol of God the Creator..." [Ward, Freemasonry and the Ancient Gods, 1921, p.238]. It is very interesting to see the Masonic authors admit they worship the creature rather than the Creator [Romans 1:25] because it shreds their flimsy claim to be Christian into a billion bits. In this sentence, we see utter blashphemy against God. Here, Masonic author, Ward, states that the Phallus is a symbol of God the Creator! In His 10 Commandments, God made it very plain that He did not want man representing Him by any created means in the entire world. In Exodus 20, we see God going through quite a list of the symbols by which He did not want man representing Him. Even though he did not list the Phallus, I am absolutely certain that God would not want man thinking of Him as a Phallus!
By their own admission, Freemasonry IS a Mysteries Religion. Every Mystery Religion in all of past history have had several things in common:
The sexual perversions of these Masonic symbols should go far to persuading everyone that Freemasonry is not Christian.
People, the End of the Age is bearing down upon us. 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 the Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
May the Lord bless you and keep you..
