Several years ago, someone gave me a copy of the “prayers for the release of Freemasons and their descendants.”[i] I read them and found them to be so bizarre; I filed them away and actually forgot about them. Months later my wife was ministering deliverance to a young lady who told my wife she felt like she had curses on her from her father. She said “he was the Grand Something of a Masonic lodge up north and he had molested her as a young girl.” She also said, “he spoke things over her, maybe some kind of prayers or chants.” I told her about the prayers I had, and how bizarre they were. This girl was so desperate to be free; she was willing to try anything.
I dug out the prayers and studied them again and they were still weird. I then got a book on Freemasonry. As I researched it, I started to see specific spirits behind Freemasonry, spirits of antichrist, bondage, witchcraft, error, infirmity, and perversion. I then decided to give the prayers a try at our next session. As we prayed the prayers with this girl she began to manifest. We were all amazed and pleasantly surprised by the results. This girl was set So Free!!!
From that day on we began asking people if they had Freemasonry in their background. If indeed they had, we would lead them through the prayers and we started seeing incredible deliverances, and healings. We continue to receive powerful testimonies. One of the ladies on our ministry team prayed the prayers quietly while I was leading another lady through them. She felt something physically lift off her chest and shoulders as we prayed. She was set free from a life long asthma condition.
Once we started using the Questionnaire, pages 21-30 of the “Deliverance Training Manual”[ii] we started to notice some very distinct patterns with people who had Masonic ancestry. What we actually started to notice was the fruit produced by the Stronghold of Freemasonry. We noticed, that almost without exception, women whose parents or grandparents (but more often grandparents) had been involved in Freemasonry had been molested as children, not necessarily by their family members but by someone. Many had however been molested by a close family member.
Regardless of what Masons believe or say, Freemasonry is a false religion steeped in witchcraft, which mixes the Holy with the profane and invites in spirits of error and perversion among others. Once the door is opened and the enemy has been given a legal right, the attack against the children is relentless until the devil gets his due. I cannot tell you the number of horrible stories of perversion, rape, molestation, and incest we’ve heard. The next fruit of Freemasonry we see is infirmities, primarily breathing or lung disorders, with asthma and allergies leading the list. We also see a host of other ailments we can directly attribute to the curses of Freemasonry. Two emotional areas we see heavily affected by Freemasonry are anger and fear. As we look into the rites and rituals of freemasonry the reasons for the fruits of freemasonry become quite evident.
Rites and Rituals of Freemasonry
The deceptive nature of Freemasonry begins with induction and membership in the lodge. When a member of the lodge wants to get someone to join the lodge, he is not allowed to ask that person to join. Instead he has his wife ask that person’s wife to have him to ask the member about the lodge. This is deliberate in order to give the devil a legal right to torment that person and his family. He opened the door himself by asking about membership in the lodge. When they join the lodge they go through an initiation ceremony. In that ceremony the initiate is bare-chested and blindfolded with a noose around his neck. He is then taken outside the lodge, they knock on the door and a person inside asks the initiate what he wants? He then answers by saying, “I want to come out of the darkness and enter into the light of freemasonry.” The initiate is then brought into the lodge still blindfolded and a dagger or sword or other sharp object is placed against his bare chest. He then swears the first of many blood oaths and curses over himself and his family. He agrees to be murdered or mutilated if the oath of the degree is violated.
The spirit of infirmity comes in from the noose around the neck, which is evidenced by the fruit of asthma, allergies and other breathing disorders in the descendants of Freemasons.
It is the belief of Freemasons that each degree obtained, brings them closer to the light, and to enlightenment. However deception is a key ingredient in Freemasonry, the initiate never really knows the truth. Albert Pike, considered to be the father of modern freemasonry; in his book Morals and Dogma of Freemasonry Wrote this:
“Masonry like all religions, all the mysteries conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect and use false explanations and misrepresentations of its symbols to mislead those who only deserve to be misled”[iii]
He also wrote:
“The Blue Degrees are but the outer court or portico of the temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the initiate, but he is intentionally mislead by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them, but it is intended he shall imagine he understands them.”[iv]
Albert pike wrote his book Morals and Dogma of Freemasonry in 1871, after spending much time studying the Hindu “Vedas.”[v] Which are said to be written so as to prevent understanding of them.[vi] As well as immersing himself in the occult teachings and witchcraft of the French lodge. The teachings of the French lodge were so demonic and steeped in witchcraft the English and American lodges had boycotted them since 1765. Pike studied the French lodge, and later wrote a 6-volume work containing 1,460 pages. He then used these writings to redesign the 4th to the 33rd degrees of the Scottish rite. Albert pikes writings are considered to be radically anti Christian and occultic in nature.[vii] Pike was also known to be a Luciferian, heavily involved in magic and astrology. And spent considerable time studying Jewish kabala (Jewish mysticism), which may have contributed to his frequent bouts with depression and seclusion.[viii]I’ll make a personal observation here; every person I have ministered to that has been heavily involved with witchcraft and the occult has battled with severe depression and suicidal thoughts, so I don’t find it strange that Albert Pike did also. Every tree produces fruit, a good tree produces good fruit and a bad tree produces bad fruit.
The Masonic lodge has 3 basic divisions the blue lodge is where the first three degrees are earned. You will see a blue Masonic building in almost any town in this nation. Once a person achieves the third or Master Mason Degree, he then moves on in the degree work either in the York Rite or the Scottish Rite. Once a person reaches the 32nd degree he is then eligible to become a Shriner. The 33rd degree can be earned or it can be honorary. Some Presidents and other influential people have been given honorary 33rd degrees for public relations reasons.
Albert Pike, when he was Sovereign Grand Commander of the supreme council of the Grand Sovereign Inspectors General of the 33rd Degree wrote this:
“That which we say to a crowd is, we worship a God, but it is the God one adores with out superstition. To you, Sovereign Grand Inspectors General, we say this, that you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st and the 30th degrees – The Masonic Religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian Doctrine…Yes Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay is also God….Thus the doctrine of Satanism is heresy…Lucifer, God of light and God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, God of darkness and evil.”[ix]
If you knew nothing else of Freemasonry this should be all you need to know, to know it’s demonic. However, I want you to have a broader understanding of the rituals and how they effect the initiates and their families to the 3rd, 4th and even the 10th generation. We’ve already looked at the noose around the neck and the obvious connection to choking and breathing disorders in the first or entered apprentice degree. Also in that degree the worshipful Master of the lodge lays hands on the initiate, and dedicates him to the God of the Lodge (which you now know is Lucifer.) He also asks that by the secrets of the lodge and by the secrets of their art he may gain eternal life.[x] In the third degree the initiate is blind folded and again led around by a noose around his neck. In this degree the initiate is approached by three ruffians who demand the initiate to tell them the secrets of Hiram Abiff. Hiram Abiff is the legendary builder of Solomon’s temple and founder of Freemasonry. The person leading the initiate speaks for him and refuses to tell the three ruffians, so they proceed to Symbolically beat him to death. He is then placed into a coffin or stretcher in a symbolic burial. Which by the way invites in a spirit of death. After a while the worshipful Master of the Lodge directs a person with a glove that resembles a lions paw, to reach down and pull the initiate out of the darkness of death and into the light of freemasonry. This ritual is an absolute mockery of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the ritual of the 18th degree, and in other degrees, the initiate takes part in a false communion. This includes a biscuit, salt and white wine. Also in many false communions the wine is drunk from a human skull. This again is an absolute mockery of Jesus Christ and the sacrament of Holy Communion.
In the higher degrees of Freemasonry, the initiates proclaim Lucifer to be God. They also invoke a wide variety of other Gods and Goddesses during their ceremonies, including Egyptian and Hindu deities. The principle spirit behind Freemasonry is Witchcraft. The Masons have drawn from every type of witchcraft trying to gain power. The power to control the rest of mankind. (New world order?) Perhaps.
History of Freemasonry
Freemasons claim their ancestry back to Solomon’s temple. Their rites, rituals and worship as well as the statues and icons of the various lodges display origins back to ancient Egypt. However its documented history only begins in 1717 with the London, England lodge.[xi]
Freemasons also claim to be a Christian organization; they even include the Holy Bible in their ceremonies and rituals. There are even Masonic Bibles in print. If you look through a Masonic bible you’ll see a classic example of mixing the Holy with the Profane. What they don’t tell you is that they will also use the Koran, The Hindu Vedas or the laws of Confucius if the initiate’s religious beliefs so dictate. That’s a far cry from being a Christian organization.
To the public the Freemasons appear to be a fraternal organization that does good deeds, caring for children and orphans, including the Shriners who sponsor and support Children’s hospitals. I have a copy of a Masonic Scholarship Award one of our Bible School students received from the lodge in her hometown. Now that all seems to be very noble doesn’t it? Sadly, the reason behind their good works is based on one of the biggest and most deceptive lies of Freemasonry, which is; “Man is not sinful but merely imperfect, and therefore can redeem himself through good works.” Therefore negating the redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary.
The Shriners, plainly proclaim Allah to be God. Allah is believed by many to be another name for God, but in all actuality Allah is the name of the moon god worshipped by the Arabic tribe that Mohammed was born into.[xii]
Shriners are also known for their little red hats with a tassel. What people, including most Shriners don’t know, is that hat called a Fez is named for a town in North Africa. In the 7th century Mohammed ordered the destruction of all infidels (anyone who would not bow to Allah) including all Christians. As the Muslim warriors swept across North Africa they came to Fez a Christian stronghold and they killed everyone in the town, they then dipped their hats in the blood of the Christians martyrs. They wore these blood red hats as a celebration of their victory and a warning to Christians, to convert to Islam or die.[xiii] Have you ever driven by a Shriners temple? They are nothing more than an Islamic Masque. Many Masonic temples resemble an Egyptian tomb or temple.
It’s also interesting to note that the symbolism in Masonic ceremonies is almost identical to Witchcraft ceremonies, including the initiation ceremony. In which the initiate must be recommended by a current member, he is stripped and blindfolded with a noose around his neck. In both ceremonies a knife or sword is put against the breast and a blood oath is made never to tell the secrets of the lodge or coven.
In fact all of the symbolism of the Masonic lodge is a symbolic act of what is actually done in witch covens around the world as they worship Satan and proclaim him to be god!
