"A nation can survive its' fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the galleys, heard in the very hall of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor--He speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their garment,... He rots the soul of a nation--he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city.
Cicero, 42 B.C., Roman Statesman, orator, and author.
Such a man is Pat Robertson. Others are world-renowned Christian evangelists Billy Graham, Norman Vincent Peale, and Robert Schuller. All three were present "in 1966 at the House of the Temple, the headquarters of Scottish Rite Freemasonry, in Washington, D.C. The occasion was the elevation of men newly chosen to the elite 33rd degree. Statues of the three Masons have been erected in the courtyard of the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California."(1)
Pat, a known Freemason, was ordained for the ministry at the Freemason Street Baptist Church in Norfolk, Virginia. He has been photographed giving several Masonic hand signs and grips to fellow Masons as has Billy Graham. Such signs include the Devil's Claw known as the sign of a Fellow Craft (2nd) Degree Mason. His picture showing this sign was seen on the front cover of the February 17, 1986 edition of Time Magazine. He has also been photographed flashing the El Diablo, horned devil(Satan), sign. This is also known as the sign of Il Cornuto and as Diabolicus.
"Robertson has long been allied with the Vatican's Sovereign Military Order of the Knights of Malta (AMOM). His father, as a U.S. Senator from Virginia, was chairman of the Senate Banking and Currency Committee."(2)
Most of today's tele-evangelists are rotten to the core, but they don't want you to know unless you are part of the "inner circle" and are familiar with their signs.
This brings to mind a passage from 2 Timothy: "while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived." 2 Timothy 3:13 NIV.(Italics mine).
Many years ago such a brotherhood existed among the elders of Israel. In fact we can find a description of it in Ezekiel chapter 8, verses 6-17.(Italics mine.)
"And he said to me ,"Son of man, do you see what they are doing-the utterly detestable things the house of Israel is doing here, things that will drive me far from my sanctuary? But you will see things that are even more detestable."
Then he brought me to the entrance to the court. I looked, and I saw a hole in the wall. He said unto me "Son of man, now dig into the wall." So I dug into the wall and saw a doorway there.
And he said unto me, "Go in and see the wicked and detestable things they are doing here." So I went in and looked, and I saw portrayed all over the walls all kinds of crawling things and detestable animals and all the idols of the house of Israel.
In front of them stood seventy elders of the house of Israel, and Jaazaniah son of Shaphan was standing among them. Each had a censor in his hand, and a fragrant cloud of incense was rising.
He said to me, "Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Israel are doing in the darkness, each at the shrine of his own idol?" Ezekiel 8:6-12a NIV.
Then he brought me into the inner court of the house of the Lord, and there at the entrance to the temple, between the portico and the alter, were about twenty-five men. With their backs toward the temple of the Lord and their faces toward the east, they were bowing down to the sun in the east.
He said to me, "Have you seen this, son of man? Is it a trivial matter for the house of Judah to do the detestable things they are doing here? Must they also fill the land with violence and continually provoke me to anger?" Ezekiel 8:16-17a NIV.
Now we find this interesting tidbit in Texe Marrs's Codex Magica:
According to Dr. C.J. Koster, head of the Institute for Scripture Research in South Africa, X was the emblem of the Chaldean (Babylonian) sky god. Koster says that the X was an ancient symbol of the sun deity and that the letter carried with it sexual connotations.
Freemasonry early-on latched onto this letter as a sign of Lucifer, the solar (sun)god. The Masonic Lodge uses the X because of its sexual meanings and its Babylonian origins.(3)
Also note the specific references to direction mentioned in the previous bible verses and the directions given in the following Masonic account of initiating a fellow craft Mason from Richardson's Monitor of Freemasonry.(Italics mine)(4)
"Master--Brother, you now discover me as Master of this Lodge, approaching you from the east, under the sign, step, and due-guard of a Master Mason."
"After saluting the Wardens he(candidate) is conducted back to the Worshipful Master in the east, who thus addresses him: Brother, I now have the honor of presenting you with a lamb-skin apron... The candidate goes to the Senior Warden who ties on his apron, and turns up one corner of the lower end, tucking it under the apron string."
"Senior Warden--At the building of King Solomon's Temple, the workmen were distinguished by the manner in which they wore their apron's. Fellow Crafts wore theirs in the manner I have here arranged."
"The candidate is again conducted by the Senior Deacon back to the Worshipful Master in the east.
Now is this brotherhood of Masons just a "good ol boys club" doing good works or is there something more sinister here as the passage from Ezekiel illustrates.
Many of the signs used by Mason's in their initiation rituals date from the time of and refer to Solomon's Temple. Such is the
Sign of Admiration, or Astonishment, as practiced in the sixth degree of the Royal Arch Masonry-the Most Excellent Master ritual. During this same ritual, the participants bow their heads low toward the floor exactly six times, balance six times, and then balance six more times. Thus 6+6+6, or 666.[Beast of Revelation 13:18] And this happens in the ritual of the sixth degree (Duncan's Masonic Ritual and Monitor, p 212-213). It is taught that the sign of Astonishment or Admiration is given in remembrance of the emotion felt by the Mason's in the days of King Solomon at the moment they viewed the inner sanctuary of the newly completed Temple of God in Jerusalem.(5)
Page 158 from Richardson's Monitor of Freemasonry details the ritual ceremony of the 17th degree Knights of East and West.
Writing in the Scottish Rite Journal, the official journal of the Mother Supreme Council, 33 degree, Jim Tresner discussed the use of X in the ritual ceremony for the 17th degree, Knight of East and West. Tresner, a 33rd degree Mason, emphasized that the 17th degree ritual is "one of the most powerful and profound degrees of the Rite." "Here," said Tresner, "we encounter raw spiritual energy" and "we begin to glimpse the spiritual power which is available" to the person who is able to access it.(6)
During the initiation ceremony of the 17th degree the Sacred Word is given to the assembled members of the Lodge. That sacred word is a shocker: It is Abaddon. The Holy Bible reveals in Revelation 9:11 who Abaddon is.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.
"In Richardson's Monitor of Freemasonry it is revealed that, following the announcement of the sacred word, Abaddon, the Lodge drama for this fateful degree provides a demonstration "intended to represent the end of the world."(7)
As I have illustrated some of our most noted tele-evangelists outwardly profess their faith in a saving God, Jesus Christ and yet they secretly worship the god of forces; the prince of the power of the air; the angel from the bottomless pit; to access the"seething energies of Lucifer" in their Masonic rituals performed in secret. They access"intelligences in the earth sphere" to climb the earthly ladder to riches, power, fame and influence. But they have sold their soul in return.
I am reminded of this verse by the Apostle Paul from 1 Timothy 4:1-2: "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;"
And also Matthew 6:24 "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon."
From this we conclude that one cannot serve Baal, Horis, Osiris, Jahbuhlun, Baphomet, Abaddon, or any other God secretly and our Lord Jesus Christ publicly at the same time; for if they hold to these "seducing spirits and doctrines of devils", through their Masonic Lodge affiliation then they must secretly dispise Jesus Christ.
Texe Marrs tells us:(8)The Illuminati and their subordinates, the Masons, honor the Deity of countless names. Yes, one of those names is Osiris, with his son Horus. But the Illuminated Deity is a concealed god who hides his true identity in a multitude of disguises and subterfuges. He is called "The Sun," the "Central Sun," "Hiram Abiff," the one with the "Ineffable Name," "Ein Soph," the "Great Architect of the Universe," "Abaddon," "Mahabone," and "Jahbuhlun." Ostensibly the Illuminati worship a pantheon, a multiplicity of gods. But, not so. These are all fronts for elite worship of Lucifer. He is their true god, the God of Light.
In all their Masonic writings, the most revered of Masonic scholars- Manly P. Hall, Albert Mackey, Albert Pike, etc. -claim that the Masonic rituals and teachings come from the "mysteries" of ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks, Persians, and others. Thus we glean understanding when we read, in Earth's Earliest Ages, this statement by G. Pember: "There is little doubt that the culmination of the mysteries was the worship of Satan himself."
Illuminist and Masonic theology is solidly based on the, Jewish Cabala(Kaballa or Quaballah). Indeed, almost all occult and magical belief systems are founded on the principles and teachings of the Jewish Cabala. In her most famous book, The Secret Doctrine, Blavatsky praised Satan as the teacher of humanity. He is to be thanked, Blavatsky says, for setting men on the path to divinity and liberty. It is, she emphasizes, the Cabala that "unveils the secret." To what secret is she referring?
Blavatsky flatly states the core doctrine of the mysteries, of occultism, of Illuminism as follows:The Great Serpent of the Garden of Eden and the Lord God are identical.(9)
This core teaching reveals the reality of the supreme evil from which the Masons draw their strength: the "seething energies of Lucifer" and Satan's angels,"intelligences in the earth sphere" which Alice Bailey called the Hierarchy.
Paul knew of this mystery teaching, he wrote of the "Mystery of Iniquity" and said of the ancient religionists: "For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him," Romans 1:21a NIV.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and to birds," (Masonic double headed eagle, Phoenix), "and four footed beasts, and creeping things."(serpents)Romans 1:22,23 KJV [See also Ezekiel 8:6-17 previously quoted].
Regarding Pat Robertson, Billy Graham, Norman Vincent Peale, and Robert Schuller I am reminded of the following verse.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 states "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works."
I call on these individuals to openly renounce their Masonic membership as a sign of their true allegiance to the one true God, Jesus Christ.
"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? 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." 2 Corinthians 6:14-17 KJV.
