This book could never have been written without the help of these students of FREEMASONRY, some of whom were high ranking Masons themselves: Martin L. Wagner and his FREEMASONRY - An Interpretation; Samuel Roth - JEWS MUST LIVE; Msgr. George Dillon - GRAND ORIENT FREEMASONRY UNMASKED; Nesta Webster - SECRET SOCIETIES AND SUBVERSIVE MOVEMENTS; Rev. E. Cahill - FREEMASONRYAND THE ANTI-CHRISTIAN MOVEMENT Dr. Shepherd, a former high ranking Mason; Rev. Jim Shaw of Silver Springs, Florida, a former high ranking Mason; Ed Decker, from FREE THE MASONS MINISTRIES, and my good friend and critic, Harry E. Werner, Jr., who has been a tremendous help and blessing to me.
This book is not original thought as far as I'm concerned. It is merely the compilation of many facts and documents dealing with FREEMASONRY which have been put into book form to help my readers understand the subversive forces behind FREEMASONRY which are seeking to enslave and destroy the white Christian world. If in writing this, the facts contained herein set some Mason free from the satanic influence of the Lodge, we will give God the credit and glory.

1 - WHAT IS FREEMASONRY?
(A Grand Chaplain Speaks Out.)
The following letter was written November 25, 1984 by Rev. Harmon R. Taylor, Grand Chaplain of the GRAND LODGE Free and Accepted Masons of the State of New York (1983-1984).
Dear Servant of God:
Knowing that you desire to serve the Lord with all your heart, I share this letter with you. Perhaps you have been struggling with the same situation. On Nov. 22nd, I sent the facts contained in this letter to all masonic bodies of which I am a member. I invite you to prayerfully read it. It will explain why I, as a Grand Chaplain of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the State of New York, am requesting a demit from all bodies of the masonic fraternity. There is much more that I could share with you. I would be happy to share more if it will help you in the Lord's service.
Many have asked me if FREEMASONRY is a religion. I have always responded, "No." Others have told me it is a religion. Study has revealed the fact that learned writers in the fraternity say MASONRY IS A RELIGION. The Lord Jesus Christ said: "hi the mouth of two or three witnesses, every word is established" (Matt. 18:16). In order to be brief, I will quote only four masonic authorities that masonry is a religion.
ALBERT MACKEY, one of the best known masonic authorities, wrote in A LEXICON OF FREEMASONRY (pg. 402): "The religion, then, masonry, is pure theism .
ALBERT PIKE, the most important of all American masonic authorities, wrote in MORALS AND DOGMA (pg. 213-214): "Every masonic lodge is a temple of religion, and its teachings are instructions in religion ... this is true religion
revealed to the ancient patriarchs,' which masonry has taught for centuries, and which it will continue to teach as long as time endures."
J. S. M. WARD, a masonic authority who has written several important books on masonry, wrote in his book: FREEMASONRY: IT'S AIMS & IDEALS. (pg. 185): "I consider freemasonry is a significant organized school of mysticism to be entitled to be called a religion." He continues on page 187: "Freemasonry ... taught that each man can, by himself, work out his own conception of god and thereby achieve salvation." It holds that there are many paths that lead to the throne of the all-loving Father which all start from a common source. Freemasonry believes, according to Ward, "that though these paths appear to branch off in various directions, yet they all reach the same ultimate goal, and that to some men one path is better and to others, another."
FRANK C. HIGGINS, a high mason, wrote in ANCIENT FREEMASONRY. (pg. 10): "fit is true the freemasonry is the parent of all religion."
These masonic witnesses all agree in their doctrine that masonry is, indeed, a religion. It is necessary now to ascertain whether masonry is a true religion or a false religion. In an article entitled, How to Recognize a False Religion (Faith for the Family, Nov/Dec 1974), a prominent Christian leader wrote:
"All false religions, however, have some things in common. Here are the three simplest tests by which any religion should be judged; FIRST, what is its attitude towards the Bible? SECOND, any religious teaching should be judged by this question: 'What is its attitude towards Jesus Christ?' FINALLY, in judging any religious system, we should ask: 'What is its attitude toward the blood of Jesus Christ.'"
According to these three tests, masonry is a false religion manifesting a satanic attitude towards the Bible, the Deity of Jesus Christ, and the blood atonement of Jesus Christ. In order to establish this charge, keep in mind the word of Christ, "In the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established." Please consider now the testimony of masonic authorities which reveals masonry's satanic attitude towards the Bible, the Deity of Jesus Christ, and the vicarious atonement for the sins of mankind by the shedding of Christ's blood on the cross.
JOSEPH FORD NEWTON, a famous masonic authority and writer, in an article entitled: THE BIBLE AND FREEMASONRY, wrote: "The Bible so rich in symbolism is itself a symbol ... thus, by the very honor which masonry pays the Bible, it teaches us to revere every book of faith in which men find help for today and hope for tomorrow, joining hands with the Hindu, as he makes covenant with God upon the book that he loves best."
ALBERT PIKE, in MORALS & DOGMA, (pg. 718) wrote: "Masonry propagates no creed except it's own simple sublime one,' that of universal religion, taught by nature and reason.
One who has been truly "born-again" (born from above), can see that the above statement from masonry totally rejects the crucial doctrine of an infallible, God-breathed, inerrant Bible.
According to the SECOND TEST, masonry is a false religion because it totally rejects the crucial doctrine of the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.
J. D. BUCK, M.D., another masonic writer of importance, in his book SYMBOLISM OF MYSTIC MASONRY, wrote (pg. 57): "In the early church as in the secret doctrine, there was not one Christ for the world but a potential Christ in every man. Theologians first made a fetish of the impersonal, omnipresent divinity,' and then tore the 'Christ
is God' from the hearts of all humanity in order to Deify Jesus; that they might have a God-Man particularly their own."
According to the THIRD TEST, masonry is a false religion because masonry dogmatically refuses the doctrine of salvation from the penalty of sin by faith in the vicarious atonement of Christ's shed blood on the cross.
THOMAS MILTON STEWART, another masonic author, in his book SYMBOLIC TEACHING ON MASONRY AND ITS MESSAGE to support his doctrine, quoted favorably an apostate Episcopal minister on pg. 177: 'Did Jesus count Himself conceive of Himself as a proprietary sacrifice and of His work an expiation? The only answer possible is clearly, He did not... He does not call Himself the world's priest, or the world's victim."
Salvation by faith in the vicarious atonement are not "ignorant perversions of the original doctrines" as masonry teaches, but are vital ingredients of the glorious Gospel of Christ, which is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes. THEREFORE, masonry fails all three tests! It manifests a satanic attitude towards the Bible, the Deity of Christ, and the vicarious atonement. In addition to failing these tests, there is much more proof that masonry is a false religion
For instance, HENRY C. CLAUSEN, 33 o, Sovereign Grand Commander of the Supreme Council 33 o, Mother Council of the World, in the NEW AGE, November, 1970 (pg. 4) wrote regarding masonry: "It is dedicated to bringing about the Fatherhood of God, the Brotherhood of Man, and making better men in a better world."
The doctrine of the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man is not found in the Bible. It is a doctrine taught consistently by apostates. Also, the Bible makes it crystal clear that no organization, masonry included, can make better men. ONLY GOD CAN MAKE BETTER MEN!
According to a masonic creed, found in the Masonic bible, masonry teaches that "character determines destiny."
The teaching that character determines destiny is a false doctrine of the Arch Deceiver of men's souls. The Bible says: "There is none that doeth good, "and "For by grace are ye saved through faith and that not of your selves; it is a gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast" (Eph. 2:8).
Masonry is anti-Christian in its teachings. For example, J. M. WARD, in FREEMASONRY - ITS AIMS AND IDEALS, wrote on (pg. 187): "I boldly aver that freemasonry is a religion, yet it no way conflicts with any other religion, unless that religion holds that no one outside its portals can be saved." Ward in his statement, reveals the fact that masonry has no conflict with any apostate religion on the face of the earth, but that it is in conflict with Christianity. The Bible says: 'Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is none other name under heaven, given among men, whereby we MUST be saved" (Acts 4:12). The Bible makes it clear that there is no other way to salvation except through Jesus Christ.
A prominent college president said of masonry: "It is a Luciferean religion. We are fully aware of its diabolical origin and purpose. I believe that any born-again Christian, when the facts from the lips of masonic writers themselves are presented showing that masonry is a religion and is the worship of Satan, will immediately withdraw." To this I must add my hearty agreement!
The God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, the only True and Living God, has clearly commanded Christians: "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers, and swear not at all, and have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them" (2 Cor. 6:14).
CHARLES FINNEY, the famed evangelist who God used to bring revival to America in the 1930's, in his book, FREEMASONRY (pg. 115) wrote: "Surely, if masons really
understood what Masonry is, as it is delineated in these books, no Christian Mason would think himself to remain at liberty another day as a member of the fraternity. It is as plain as possible that a man knowing what it is, and embracing it in his heart, cannot be a Christian man. To say he is is to disbelieve the very nature of Christianity."
For me, the signs of the time compared with prophetic Scripture, make it apparent that we are living in the last days prior to the Rapture of the Church. (Here is another apparently sincere man, who has been taken in by Jewish propaganda concerning the Rapture - ED). Satan is hard at work trying to hinder believer's spiritual growth, as well as trying to keep the unsaved from entering God's family. Freemasonry, I have come to believe, is one of Satan's master deceptions. Many ministers, elders, deacons, trustees, and Sunday School teachers belong to this cult. Today, my membership ends! Today a new ministry begins! There is a tremendous need to scrutinize the cultic nature of Freemasonry in view of the massive infiltration of its effects on the working body of the church. It should be exposed to the True Light - Jesus Christ.
Love in Christ,

2 - WHAT ABOUT THE YOUTH
ORDERS OF FREEMASONRY?
The following information comes from an article titled: THROUGH THE FIRES OF MOLECH, by WILLIAM J. SCHNOEBELEN. For further information contact: FREE THE MASONS MINISTRIES, P.O. Box 1077, Issaquah, WA 98027.
An earnest question is asked of us who minister to the Masons. "So if Masonry is un-Christian, what about the youth orders of Masonry? Are they so bad?" In this increasingly carnal world order, are there good places one can send their son or daughter for fun and fellowship with the assurance that they will only be exposed to wholesome influences?
What about the Masonic orders for youth - the ORDER OF DEMOLAY? THE RAINBOW GIRLS? JOB'S DAUGHTERS? Are these innocent enough? This assumption neglects central principles found in the Holy Bible - the very Bible which is found reposing on the. alters of Masonry.
The first question is one of spiritual authority. Surely no Christian parents needs to be reminded of the responsibility they have for the precious young souls God has entrusted to them. The Bible is full of admonitions to carefully train one's child.
"And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when though liest down, and when thou riseth up" (Deut. 11:19).
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord" (Eph. 6:4).
Conversely, there are dire spiritual warnings for those who either fail to teach their children or who lead them in error-filled teachings:
"But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me (Christ), it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he be drowned in the depths of the sea" (Matt. 18:6).
Thus God has given Christian parents ultimate spiritual authority, or headship over their children. Even if the child has not yet received eternal life, he or she is protected under the covenant of the parent's commitment to Jesus Christ to an incredible extent. The Lord has placed a strong hedge of protection around Christian families.
"Hast thou (God) not made a hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land" (Job 1:10).
What does all this have to do with Masonic youth orders? It is the same question of leadership. Masonry is a false religious system, and its god is not the Biblical God. Therefore, temples of Freemasonry are temples of a false god; and Freemasons are, knowingly or not, priests of a false, Baalish system.
Please bear in mind that this is a spiritual principle and that it has little to do with the appearances or even the philosophies of these youth groups. None of these groups are allowed to meet without the presence of a MASTER MASON. They function solely under the charter of Masonic authority! They are also designed to draw young people into the adult orders, which means that upon being initiated the young man or woman is spirithe ly "adopted" into the Masonic family, even though they are not actually Masons.
Even the Christian youth, who has been adopted into God's family (Rom. 8:15-17) comes under this spiritual authority of Masonry as well when he joins the order. This cannot help but make them "double-minded" (James 1:5-8) at an already difficult phase of their lives.
No matter how apparently "innocent" the ceremonies and teachings of these youth orders are, they function under
the shadow of an anti-Christian spiritual power which the Master Mason brings with him.
No parent would knowingly permit their son or daughter to attend a coven of witches; and yet the same spiritual principality (Eph. 6:12) which presides over witchcraft, ALSO presides over Masonic ceremonies - the false god of magic and ancient pagan fertility cults from which Masonry proudly claims descent!1
FUELING THE FIRES?
Thus the youth is walking innocently into a spiritual minefield, without warning, when they enter a Masonic youth order. They stand in Satan's territory and have opened a doorway in their lives to him to begin to corrode their very souls. They have broken down the hedge which God has placed around them! (Eccl. 19:8).
Not only that! At the very age when powerful emotional drives are running at peak, they are surrendering themselves to a spiritual power which is engineered to provoke lust! The very elements and symbols of Masonry, even as in witchcraft, are sexual in spiritual content. A young person who is receiving sound instruction at home would be having it subtly undermined by submitting to the headship of Masonic authority!
Masonry exalts human sexuality in a disguised way. The square and compass symbols actually represent the male and female reproductive organs. The "point within the circle" and the twin pillars are disguised forms of ancient talismans of paganism designed to invoke lust.2
Notes:-1 (See Albert Pike's Morals And Dogma, pp. 730-732; Albert Mackey's 33 o, Encyclopedia Of Freemasonry, pp. 560, 573
2 Albert Mackey 33 o, Encyclopedia Of Freemasonry, pp. 560, 573; and Symbolism In Freemasonry, pp. 352-53).
Thus, while teaching pious principles on the surface, these orders only serve to pour fuel on the already smoldering fires of adolescent emotion, and the God-given rights of the Christian parents are diluted by the very real authority of a strange god who appeals to all that is carnal in a young person.
WHERE IS CHRIST?
The desire to be "something special," and to "Lord it over others" is enhanced by these groups, which bestows impressive, high sounding titles upon the officers ("Honored Queen," etc.,) and dress them up in all the pomp of royalty! Crowns and scepters, satin robes and chains of office: these all serve to glorify the egos of the young people instead of conforming them to the humble image of Christ (See Phil. 2:5-9; Rom. 12:1,2).
Certainly these orders make a show of teaching "religion," but religion is not what our youth need. They need the Gospel of Grace! Subtly but completely, a doctrine of salvation by works and labor is taught in these orders, contrary to Scripture. The secrecy and elitism of these groups is both uncharitable and forbidden by Jesus Christ Himself, who forbade the taking of oaths (Matt. 5:34-37). True Christian love does not exclude, but rather embraces "whosoever will may come."
THERE ARE DEEPER CONCERNS!
Listen to the Prophet Jeremiah: "And they built the high places of Baal, which are the valley of the son of Himnon, to cause their sons and daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin" (Jer. 32:35).
Elsewhere God specifically commands: "Thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God. I lam the Lord" (Lev. 18:22; 20:1-5).
Now what is being spoken of was a particularly vile form of child sacrifice. Molech was a god of the Ammorites, an idol made of metal and heated up by flames from within. The child was placed in the idol's red-hot arms and one hesitates to even imagine the results.3The Hebrews were forbidden by God to do this.
Yet, unthinkable as it sounds, the Israelites persistently fell into this precise sort of idolatry. They were so beguiled by the exquisite sounding promises of the priests of Baal and Molech that they willingly passed their sweet children through the fires; in spite of the repeated warnings of the prophets. Even the wise Solomon, one of the patron saints of Masonry, built an altar to this god (1 Kings 11:1-8).
Horrifying as this may seem, in Masonry the same thing is happening to the young person on a spiritual level! The fires of Molech only consumed the bodies of those innocent children; the spiritual fires of the Masonic order corrodes the very souls of our
Notes:-3. Eerdman's Handbook of the Bible, p.178.
youth! The "intention rites" which they put these young people through are unhallowed conflagrations which sear their consciences with a red-hot iron.
In our society today, there are enough "fires" through which our children must walk: drugs, sex, occult movies, and heavy metal music. Most of these the child chooses for himself, however, unknowingly.
But in the Masonic youth orders, the young person is often urged to join with the blessings of the parents. The very virtuous appearance of these Orders is what makes them the more dangerous. These teens are drinking spiritual poison in unlabled bottles! They are coming under an un-Christian spiritual power which conflicts with the power of God and can only cause confusion to the teen.
Solomon wrote that "He that troubleth his own house, shall in inherit the wind" (Prov. 11:29); and his life was tragic proof of that. His idolatry fractured the kingdom of Israel, and he did indeed "inherit the wind."
We are troubling our own house when we offer our children these pagan societies. We are creating subtle discord in their young hearts when we let them sit, week after week, under the shadow of Masonry, and yet expect them to be upright.
WHAT CAN BE DONE?
Let us remember the "curse of the millstone," which Jesus said in Matthew 18:6, should be tied around the necks of those who lead children astray and try to pass our adolescents through more fires than our culture already subjects them to.
It is the unseen trap which is the most deadly, and their very souls are at stake. If you are allowing your young people to partake in these societies, you need to get them out immediately! If you, yourself, are involved, you need
to renounce them and repent before God! Only then will you have full victory which Jesus can bring.
It is important to remember, that as you draw your children from these "fires," they will also need to repent in prayer for their involvement. They can do this by asking a loving Savior to wash them clean with His blood and take the spiritual debris out of their lives! He is indeed 'faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:19).
3 - INTRODUCTION TO THE MASONIC PROBLEM
In John 7:4 we read: "For there is no man that doeth anything in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If though doest these things, show thyself to the world."
In Luke 8:17 we read: "For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest (rendered apparent or made known); neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad."
The subject which we are about to discuss in detail is one which I have avoided for a long time. But because of the seriousness of its nature and the profound danger it presents to white Christians in particular, it is something I MUST face even though its revelation may bring personal danger and many may be offended.
I am praying that this book will engender more "light" than it does "heat." I do not ask that you agree with my conclusions, some of which will be rather startling in nature. I do ask that you are fair enough with yourself, to
read this book to the end, before you consign it to the waste basket. Please do not be one of those smug persons who say by their actions: "Don't bother me with the truth, I have already made up my mind!" It is very possible, that before I have finished with this subject 0f FREEMASONRY, I will have to say with the Apostle Paul: "Am I to become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?" (Gal. 4:16).
What is this "super-sensitive" issue we will discuss, that might cause this adverse reaction? No, we will not be discussing JUDAISM, although this has also become a "No! No!" in modern life. In the pages which follow, I will attempt to describe a dangerous phenomenon known as FREEMASONRY! We will look into what it is, how it began, discuss its major purposes and then see the startling story of who is behind it!
To gain these answers, we will go to a number of sources, including writers who have been high ranking Masons who, when they learned the truth and found out the nature of the organization they had joined, had the courage to get out and expose it!
We will examine statements made by both the Lodge and its opponents. I ask that God will give us enlightenment, through His Word, the Bible, so that we may learn the truth, not what men would like to believe.
In Ecclesiastes 12:1, we read: "For God shall bring every work into judgment, with EVERY SECRET THING, whether it be good or evil."
A great American educator of an earlier day once said: "It must be a bad issue which cannot bear discussion. Truth always seeks the light."
Jesus said in John 3:19 - "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, BECAUSE THEIR DEEDS ARE EVIL."
There you have it!
It would seem from this, that most things which are done in secret are evil. In Ephesians 5:12 we read: "For it is a shame to speak of those things which are done of them in secret."
We are going to probe deeply into one of the most secret of all secrets - a secret which has and still does involve millions of men and which exerts untold control over the lives of all Americans.
What is this hidden force called FREEMASONRY?
To millions of members, in what is sometimes called the Blue Lodge, which makes up the lower ranks of FREEMASONRY, Freemasonry is a philanthropic, benevolent, fraternal order of men, who have banded together under the Christian banner of "world-brotherhood" for a common cause.
Often, however, hidden orders in society, have had ulterior motives, not known to the "rank and file" members. Only the "elite" in the "upper echelons" are allowed to see the secret plans.
It may interest you to know that most of the lower orders of Freemasonry, do not realize their is a close connection between Masonry and anti-Christ Zionism, but this is an established fact of history which I will seek to prove to you.
The Talmudic (Jewish holy book) formulas employed by Freemasonry; the Jewish traditions which run through masonic ceremonies, all point to a Jewish origin, or to the work of Jewish connivers in the lodge. Behind the Zionists urge to rebuild Solomon's temple, lies a virulent hatred of Christ and all things Christian and is found in the depths of Jewish secret societies.
We should remember, that the people of the Bible, in both the Old and New Testament eras, those who most
translations of the Bible call JEWS, should actually be called JUDEANS, since there were no people in the world known as JEWS, until about 742 B.C., nearly 1200 years after the time of Abraham, where we find them fighting against Israel.
Since the term JEW, in the Bible, has no religious connotation and simply refers to those people who were living in the area of Palestine called JUDEA and which were made up of many races, and religions, therefore they should be properly referred to as JUDAHITES or JUDEANS, rather than JEWS.
The religion of the modern people we call JEWS, was not the Hebrewism of Moses and the Old Testament prophets, but was a new, Cabalistic (occult) religion the Judeans brought back with them when a few returned from Babylonian captivity about 536 B.C. Today, this religion is more accurately known as TALMUDIC JUDAISM. At the time of Christ, the Talmudic scholars were called PHARISEES. Many of these were Edomites who were related to Abraham through his grandson Esau (see John 8:33). While these sat in "Moses' seat" of authority (Matt. 23:2), they had already overthrown the true Hebrew religion, by what Jesus called "the traditions of men " (Matt. 15:6, 9).
These were the enemies of God and God's true Israel and were the ones with whom our Lord had a constant running battle while He was here on earth. These were the ones who ultimately persuaded the Israelite people to kill their own Messiah (John 1:11).
One of the tenets of their plot was to return to Jerusalem from Babylon, rebuild Solomon's temple and from there establish control of the world. The above was taken from a discourse by Msg. George Dillion, given in Edinburgh, Scotland, in October 1884. The object of his message was
to give a clear outline of the secret, atheistic organization, that was to aid the JUDEANS in their worldwide plot.
In spite of the fact that God had given repeated warnings to the Hebrew people through His prophets, they constantly refuse to follow His plans. God permitted them to kill His Son, Jesus Christ, and thus restore the hope of salvation to mankind "For by His (Christ's) stripes are we healed" (Isa. 53:5). When the JUDAHITES turned their backs on God, the Kingdom was taken away from them and given to another nation (Israel), (see Matt. 21:43).
On account of their racial pride, the people who called themselves JEWS, refused to accept the idea of a kingdom higher than their national life and refused to believe that anyone but they could enter this kingdom. When Christ was murdered on Mt. Calvary, at the instigation of the national leadersfailey determined to work against God and His purpose and impose their rule on all peoples everywhere. This has been their purpose ever since and they make very little attempt to hide it.
Following the narrow, national outlook dictated by national pride, the modern people who call themselves JEWS have continued on this road for centuries (Read Malachi 1:2-4, to get a better picture of what is happening now and what will be the end result.)
Over and over again, since Christ's atoning death on the cross, the Christian church has faced the persistent opposition of those who "say they are Jews and are not; but are of the synagogue of Satan" (Rev. 2:9; 3:9. Not my words but those of the risen Christ).
That the Jews eventually plan to rule the world is made adequately by their national leaders down through history! A letter from the Chief Rabbi of Palestine, appeared in THE IRISH INDEPENDENT newspaper, Dublin, Ireland, Jan. 6, 1948, in which Rabbi Hertszob stated concerning the establishment of the Israeli nation in Palestine:
"Eventually it will lead to the inauguration of the true union of nations through which will be fulfilled the eternal messages to mankind of our immortal prophets."
The thinking of these NEW AGE MESSIANIC JEWS, contains a two-fold corruption of all Christian nations. First by opposing the coming of our Lord, they oppose the only means by which mankind can come into a right relationship with God. Jesus said: "No man cometh to the Father, but by me" (John 14:6). 1 John 2:23 says: "He that denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father."
Secondly, Judaism seeks to impose their national ideals on all other nations. Thus the people whose religion is found in TALMUDISM place themselves in direct opposition to the world order proclaimed by Jesus Christ.
In his book, FREEMASONRY IN THE 16TH CENTURY, William Walsh states:"It is no longer debatable that, if the false leaders of the Jews did not originate the secret societies to cover their own anti-Christian activities, they had a great deal to do with the business. The degrees and rites of Freemasonry are shot through with Jewish symbolism. The candidate goes towards the east, towards Jerusalem, he is going to rebuild the temple (destroyed in fulfillment of Jesus' prophecy)... The Grand Orient and Scottish Rites, sources of so many revolutions, are more militant and open and apparently more virulent than some of the others whom they are leading into a single, one-world organization by gradual steps.
"It is certain there were Jews at the cradle of Freemasonry Cabalistic Jews, as proven by some of the rites they have preserved.1 According to Rabbi Stephen Wise, a leading ZIONIST of a generation ago: "When the Jews returned from Babylon, that was the end of Hebrewism and the beginning of JUDAISM."'
Notes:-1. The Cabal, or Kabbal, is an occult philosophy of the JUDAHITES who returned to Jerusalem after seventy years of captivity in Babylon. They returned with the BABYLONIAN TALMUD as the basis of their religion, replacing and superseding the TORAH of Moses.
Walsh goes on to state that Jews were in the confidence of Adam Weishaupt, the Bavarian Jew who organized the ILLUMINATI CONSPIRACY in 1776, AND WHO RECRUITED MANY MEMBERS FROM FREEMASONRY. The lodges organized by Martinez de Pasqualis, a Jew of Portuguese origin, were "mystical," while others of FREEMASONRY were "naturalistic." (Rationalist - the doctrine that knowledge comes only from pure reason, without any aid from the senses. It is pure intellectualism, the doctrine which rejects all revelation and the supernatural.)
The Apostle Paul, speaking of men such as these said: "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools" (Romans 1:22).
FREEMASONRY was in operation in Europe as early as 1527, where it was set up by JUDAISM as a secret society, or group of societies, in which its naturalism and anti-supernaturalism was kept secret and camouflaged. This contrasted with JUDAISM which openly proclaimed its hostility towards Christianity.
Both the "naturalists," and the FREEMASONS do not accept by faith, those truths which are made known to man through revelation. The fundamental error of FREEMASONRY can be found in its "naturalism."
In his book, THE X-RAYS IN FREEMASONRY Jewish author A. Cowen, writes on page 6:The Jews swarmed into it (Freemasonry) from the earliest times and controlled it through the higher grades and councils. They have controlled the ancient and accepted Scottish Rite since the beginning of the Nineteenth Century."
