Freemasonry And The MessageJohn Collins9/24/2012 8:29:00 PMFreemasonry in the message is harder to detect, by the simple nature of the religion itself. Masons have mixed idolatry, paganism, the occult, Gnosticism, Kabala, fertility cults, Satanism, spiritualism, demonology, and more, creating a hodge-podge of false religions into one combined evil.
Some believe this religion that encompasses so many results of the idolatry described in the old testament is the Harlot of Babylon described in the Book of Revelation. Regardless of whether it is or not, it is truly Pagan worship. Masons offer new recruits "the light". The light they are actually giving is: Lucifer. The Christian Bible says that Satan walks to and fro on this earth masquerading as an "angel of light", that many might be deceived.
Mystery Religion of Nature, Pyramidology, and Astrology
Masons repeatedly are directed to the "Mystery Religion," claiming that their religion was one hidden in ancient teachings and lost over time. The fundamental belief of the Masons is that this mystery will be revealed to the people in the last days.
The core element of the Mason religion points back to the time man found God in nature. Masons believe that ancient man studied nature as his bible before the written Word.
As time progressed, man set up a great monument to corroborate the Bible: the Great Pyramid of Giza. This pyramid, according to the Masons, is believed to be representation of the mystery religion.
During the troubled times of the Middle Ages, Masons believe that the truth was written in the stars. The Zodiac was the outlined interpretation of the mystery religion.
Study of [basic] numbers
Masons have a fascination of studying [elementary] numbers. It is prominent throughout their doctrine, and used to depict not only basic core beliefs, but advanced knowledge as well.
The numbers 33 and 3 are both believed to have significant meaning. Masons believe that when the 'Sons of man' fell, they landed on Mount Hermon in what used to be Phoenicia, now in Israel. This location is exactly 33.33 degrees north and 33.33 degrees east.
Oddly, it is 2012 miles from the equator, and 2012 miles from the Paris Meridian. Many ancient structures are aligned to the Paris Meridian, and Masons believe that this is significant in their study of the New World Order. An 'unearthly' ruler will return.
Also interesting is that 33.33 degrees translate to 2012.9 degrees of the earth -- which corresponds to December 21, 2012 (the date the ancient Mayans believed their calendar would end.)
Their core belief system is very basic:
- Three is the third whole number excluding zero.
- Three is the sum of the first three whole numbers.
- In the first three numbers, 0, 1, 2 all of the others are synthesized.
- From the union of oneness and duality (which is its reflection), that is, from triad, proceed all of the other numbers, and from this primordial triangle all figures derive.
- A triangle, with three sides, is the first closed a two dimensional object.
- RNA has a triplet codon system.
- DNA has a triplet codon system.
- Human chromosomes can present trisomy. We are hard-wired for the number three.
- 3 mammalian Germ layers: Endoderm- Mesoderm- Ectoderm 3
- principal stages of glucose respiration: Glycolysis~ Krebs cycle~ Electron transport chain.
But later moves on from basic discovery to theology common among all cultures:
- There are three main Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The Holy Trinity in Christian doctrine (or trinity in general), is God both as a single being and three persons: the Father, the Son and the Spirit. This is also known as Tripartite division.
- Jesus rose from the dead on the third day.
- The Wise Men who visited Jesus after His birth left Him three gifts.
- Three Wise Men
- In Muslim devotional rites, certain formulas are repeated three times, and others thirty-three times
- A devout Muslim tries to make a pilgrimage to all three holy cities in Islam: Mecca, Medina, and Jerusalem
Finally it is included in their organizational structure:
- Three Grand Masters
- Three Principle Officers
- Three Great Supports of Masonry
- Three Great Lights of Masonry
- Three Distinct Knocks
- Three Degrees
- Three Orders of Architecture
- Three Precious Jewels of a Fellowcraft.
- Three Wages of a Fellowcraft Mason.
- The Three Villains
- The Three Deacons Raps
Watching You, Watching You! There's An All-Seeing Eye Watching You!
Masons teach that the 'capstone' of the pyramid was the deity to be worshipped. The capstone was an 'all-seeing eye.' The symbol on the dollar bill has been taught since the 18th century by Masons in their pagan religion to describe the one who would bring the New World Order.
This symbol, having three sides, lines up with the Mason's theology of the 'threes'.
The Sixth Sense
Masons teach that we have lost our 'sixth sense' abilities. To find a higher faith than what we were given, we must learn the ancient 'sacred science' that allows us to move on to a higher plane.
"It is the opening of a sixth sense through which a man actually feels his immortality with the same absolute certainty as he feels another object through the sense of touch. This sixth sense cannot be communicated from one person to another; it lies dormant in all; it must be developed through spiritual exercisesâ€¦" --http://www.deepertruth.com/journal/article-2.html
Baphomet: The Breasted God
The breasted god 'Asherah' combined with other gods of Baal became the imaginary god Baphomet. The Knights Templar performed rituals to this pagan god during the foundation of Freemasonry.
The False Prophet
Many false prophets were openly Mason. Others hid it well, but were discovered after their deaths. This is not limited to William Branham.
The list could go on throughout the ages.
- Oral Roberts was a 33'rd degree Mason. The design of his medical center included the three-sided pyramid.
- Charles Taze Russell's grave, similar to William Branham's is the form of a pyramid. Russel founded the Jehovah's Witness religion. Russel was a 33rd degree mason.
- Joseph Smith of the Mormons was also a 33rd degree Mason.
- Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, was a 33rd degree Mason.
- Prophetess Ellen G. White, founder of the Seventh-day Adventist [SDA] Church; was a Mason and believed to be a Wiccan.
Almost none of Masonry's teachings come from Christianity, yet there are enough doctrinal teachings spread throughout William Branham's ministry to fill an entire forum. Since Freemasonry is a combination of several false religions, the rest of this forum will speak for itself.
The thing that binds all of the false religions together is the capstone. This capstone is on display for all to see:
