Magic, Freemasonry and the Roman Catholic Church
(A compilation plucked from the pages of Evildoer Added to Evildoer: The Story of Satan, Azazel and the Rebellious Angels) ―In the past, many Freemason‘s have been ceremonial magicians. Such magic practices involve the invocation of fallen angels, including the angels Satan and Azazel. As we learn from the Freemasonic ceremonial magician and occult author A.E. Waite in Chapter XV of DevilWorship in France (1896 A.D.) concerning this association of magic with Freemasonry: ―When the history of Freemasonry becomes possible by the possession of materials, its chief philosophical interest centres in one country of Europe; there is no doubt that it exercised an immense influence upon France during that century of quakings and quickenings which gave birth to the great revolution, transformed civilisation in the West, and inaugurated the modern era. Without being a political society, it was an instrument eminently adaptable to the subsurface determination of political movements. At a later date it may have contributed to the formation of Germany, as it did certainly to the creation of Italy, but the point and centre of Masonic history is France in the eighteenth century. To that country also is mainly confined the historical connection between Masonry and mystic science, for the revival of Mysticism which originated in Germany at the close of the eighteenth century, and thence passed over to England, found its final field in France at the period in question. There Rosicrucianism reappeared, there Anton Mesmer recovered the initial process of transcendental practice, there the Marquis de Puységur discovered clairvoyance, there Martines de Pasqually (―Jacques de Livron Joachim de la Tour de la Casa Martinez de Pasqually (1727? -1774) Was a theurgist and theosophist of uncertain origin. He was the founder of the l'Ordre de Chevaliers Maçons Élus Coëns de l'Univers - Commonly referred to as the 'Elus Cohens' in 1761. He was the tutor, initiator and friend of Louis-Claude de Saint-Martin and Jean-Baptiste Willermoz, and therefore regarded as the originator of martinism.‖ – Wikipedia: Martinez de Pasqually) instructed his disciples in the mysteries of ceremonial magic; there the illustrious Saint-Martin, le philosophe inconnu, developed a special system of spiritual reconstruction; there alchemy flourished; there spiritual and political princes betook themselves to extravagant researches after an elixir of life; there also, as a consequence, rose up a line of magnificent impostors who posed as initiates of the occult sciences, as possessors of the grand secret and the grand mastery; there, finally, under the influences of transcendental philosophy, emblematic Freemasonry took root and grew and flourished, developing ten thousand splendours of symbolic grades, of romantic legends, of sonorous names and titles. In a word, the Mysticism of Europe concentrated its forces at Paris and Lyons, and all French Mysticism gathered under the shadow of the square and compass (of Freemasonry). To that, as to a centre, the whole movement gravitated, and thence it worked. There is nothing to show that it endeavoured to revolutionise Masonry in its own interest. The Fraternity naturally attracted all Mystics to its ranks, and the development of the mystic degrees
took place as the result of that attraction. By the year 1825 a variety of circumstances had combined to suspend transcendental activity, and the connection with Masonry ended, but the present revival of mystic thought is rapidly picking up the links of the broken chain; secretly or unobtrusively the spirit of transcendentalism is working within the Fraternity, and the bogus question of Lucifer is simply a hostile and unscrupulous method of recognising that fact. If Masonry and Mysticism could be shown in the historical world to be separated by the great sea, the consanguinity of their intention would remain, which is more important than external affinity, and they are sisters by that bond. But they have not been so separated, and on either side there is no need to be ashamed of the connection. With all brethren of the Fraternity (of Freemasonry), "we also do believe in the resurrection of Hiram" (which action represents the release of the angel Azazel from his earthen imprisonment), and we regard the Temple as "an edifice immediately realisable, for we rebuild it in our hearts." We also adore the Grand Architect (aka the Great Architect), and offer our intellectual homage, to the divine cipher which is in the centre of the symbolic star; and we believe that some day the Mason will recognise the Mystic. He is the heir of the great names of antiquity, the philosophers and Hierarchs, and the spiritual kings of old; he is of the line of Orpheus and Hermes (Trismegestes), of the Essenes and the Magi. And all those illustrious systems and all those splendid names with which Masonry has ever claimed kindred belong absolutely to the history of Mysticism.‖ Freemasonry is also associated with the secret society known as the Illuminati. The Illuminati are associated with the Freemasonic Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of 33 Degrees. As related in Aleister Crowley: The Midnight Messenger by Mike Culkin: ‗Weishaupt wrote the following to a fellow Illuminatus: "We must consider how we can begin to work under another form. If only the aim is achieved, it does not matter under what cover it takes place, and cover is always necessary. For in concealment lies a great part of our strength. For this reason we must cover ourselves with the name of another society. The lodges that are under Freemasonry are in the meantime the most suitable cloak for our high purpose…‖‗ As expressed in Chapter 4 of America‘s Subversion: The Enemy Within by Sonny René Stermole, the book being a treatise on Freemasonry: ―The Kundalini serpent force ending in "illumination" of the brain by Lucifer, having Lucifer or Satan intensely impress thoughts upon one's brain, is what is considered to achieve occult „redemption,‟ ancient ‗Wisdom.‘‖ (Author‘s Note: Such men thus led by ―the spirit of error‖ were said to be Illuminated) The word ‗kundalini‘ is Sanskrit for `snake.´ In this case the serpent/snake is analogous of the electromagnetic wave, yet more specifically, and in relation to Satan‘s flaming darts, referring to an electromagnetic wave of a specific wavelength/frequency (ELF waves), whereby he implants thoughts into the minds of men. In The Lost Keys of Freemasonry (1923 A,D,) Manly P. Hall states Freemasons ―must realize that the ancient mystic (Author‘s note: the word ‗mystic‘ is synonymous with ‗magic‘) teachings as perpetuated in the modern (Freemasonic) rites are sacred (being based on ancient religious systems), and that powers (read: angels) unseen and unrecognized (Hall refers to Ephesians 6:12) mold the destiny of those who consciously and of their own free will take upon themselves the obligations of the Fraternity (of Freemasonry).‖ Satan is ‗the Spirit of Freemasonry‘ who influences the lives of such Freemasonic men through his use of the spirit of error. The Freemasonic order is wrongly regarded as a secular organization, and skirts the Constitution‘s injunction mandating a separation of church and state: ―Although today Masons do not call their Craft a religion, it has nevertheless a religious origin‖ – The Hidden Life in Freemasonry (C.W. Leadbeater)
As part of the teachings of the 25th degree of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry known as the Knight of the Brazen Serpent, Freemasonic author Albert Pike informs us: ―This Degree is…devoted to an explanation of the symbols of Masonry; and especially to those which are connected with that ancient and universal legend (concerning the story of Azazel), of which that of Khir-Om Abi (Hiram Abiff) is but a variation; that legend which, representing a murder or a death, and a restoration to life, by a drama in which figure Osiris, Isis and Horus, Atys (Attis) and Cybele, Adonis and Venus, the Cabiri, Dionusos (Dionysus), and many another (these are all gods and goddesses who represented the angel Azazel and his human wife)…‖ - Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry by Albert Pike (circa. 1871 A.D.) Freemasonry, by Pikes own admission, passes on the secret teachings concerning the Genesis serpent Azazel and his human wife through the Masonic legend concerning Hiram Abiff! (Some members of Freemasonry are tasked in comparative religious studies) ―The Occult Science of the Ancient Magi (the Magi were magicians who invoked the rebellious fallen angels, the angels Satan and Azazel included) was concealed under the shadows of the Ancient Mysteries: it was imperfectly revealed or rather disfigured by the Gnostics: it is guessed at under the obscurities that cover the pretended crimes of the Templars; and it is found enveloped in enigmas that seem impenetrable, in the Rites of the Highest Masonry. Magism was the Science of Abraham and Orpheus, of Confucius and Zoroaster. It was the dogmas of this Science that were engraven on the tables of stone by Hanoch (Enoch) and (Hermes) Trismegistus. Moses purified and re-veiled them, for that is the meaning of the word reveal. He covered them with a new veil, when he made of the Holy Kabalah the exclusive heritage of the people of Israel, and the inviolable Secret of its priests.‖ - The Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and
Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry by Albert Pike (circa. 1871 A.D.) (In 1855 A.D. Rabbi Isaac Wise wrote: "Freemasonry is a Jewish establishment, whose history, grades, official appointments, passwords, and explanations are Jewish from beginning to end.")
Indeed: ―All truly dogmatic religions have issued from the Kabalah…all the Masonic associations owe to it their secrets and their symbols.‖ - Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry
by Albert Pike (circa. 1871 A.D.)
As we learn from a number of sources: ―The Kabala was first taught by God himself to a select Company of Angels who formed a theosophic school in Paradise‖ (See The Secret Doctrine (Volume II P.284) by H. P. Blavatsky, The Kabbalah by Christian D. Ginsburg and The Kabbalah Denudata of Christian Knorr von Rosenroth). Included in this group of angels were the angels Satan and Azazel. This knowledge was later revealed to man via the rebel angels. What secrets are revealed by The Zohar, that major storehouse of Kabalistic knowledge? It teaches of the fallen angels of course, and how they came to our Earth, there to abide: ―…Uzza (Semjaza) and Azael (Azazel), who rebelled above, were cast down by the Blessed Holy One (by God), and materialized on earth, abiding on it…Subsequently they strayed after earthly women…They engendered children, whom they called Mighty Giants…‖ - Zohar 1:58a (See
also Zohar 1:37a and Genesis 6:4)
The Zohar teaches that the angel Azazel had impiously impregnated Adam‘s wife Eve: ―the serpent (Azazel) injected that slime (his semen) into Eve, she absorbed it, so when she copulated with Adam she bore two sons (Cain and Abel): one (Cain) from the impure side (from Azazel) and one (Abel) from the side of Adam, Cain resembling both the higher image (of the angel Azazel) and the lower (the human Adam) (Cain was an angel/human hybrid)…Cain was certainly son of the impure spirit…deriving from…the side of the Angel (Azazel)…‖ - Zohar 1:54a Zohar 2:7a tells us the gods of the nations as spoken of in The Bible are no mere powerless idols but represent actual celestial beings who have influence over actual events on our Earth. Also, according to The Zohar, in reference to the builders of the Tower of Babel, the first and foremost being Nimrod, ―Said Rabbi Abba: ‗They were the subjects of a horrible and demoniacal infatuation in that they impiously wished to abandon the worship of the Lord for that of Satan or the serpent (Azazel) to whom they rendered homage and glory.‘‖ Freemasonry brags of an historical association with Nimrod. As per The Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, the Freemasonic York MS. No. 1 says ―At ye making of ye toure (tower) of Babel there was a Masonrie first much esteemed of, and the King of Babilon yt called Nimrod was a Mason himself and loved well Masons.‖ The Masons identified themselves as such in reference to their building of the Tower of Babel, it being a tower constructed of bricks. Harleian, Sloane, Landsdowne and Edinburgh-Kilwinning Masonic manuscripts, for instance, state as fact that Masons were employed in the building of the Tower of Babel. The Ancient Craft Freemasonic calendar of the York and French rites begins in 4000 B.C., the year the Tower of Babel was completed in the same year destroyed, at the time when the people‘s languages were confused and their population dispersed, as the result of their rebellion against God (4000 B.C. = 1 A:L in the Ancient Craft Masonic calendar of the York and French rites). Freemasonry renders homage to Satan and Azazel. Freemasonry is part of what is known as The Theosophical Movement: ―The Theosophical Movement (the creation of which was influenced by the rebellious fallen angels) being continuous, it is to be found in all times and in all nations. Wherever thought has struggled to be free, wherever spiritual ideas, as opposed to forms and dogmatism, have been promulgated, there the great movement is to be discerned. Jacob Boehme's work was a part of it, and so also was the Theosophical Society of over one hundred years ago; (Martin) Luther's reformation (made possible through the secret Rosicrucian Society) must be reckoned as a portion of it; and the great struggle between Science and Religion, clearly portrayed by Draper (See History of the Conflict Between Religion and Science by John William Draper, M.D.; 1910 A.D.)), was every bit as much a motion of the Theosophical Movement as is the present Society of that name - indeed that struggle, and the freedom thereby gained for science, were really as important in the advance of the world, as are our different organizations. And among political examples of the movement is to be counted the Independence of the American colonies, ending in the formation of a great nation, theoretically based on Brotherhood. One can therefore see that to worship an organization, even though it be the beloved theosophical one, is to fall down before Form, and to become the slave once more of that dogmatism which our portion of the Theosophical Movement, the T.S. (the Theosophical Society), was meant to overthrow. Some members have worshipped the so-called "Theosophical
Society," thinking it to be all in all, and not properly perceiving its de facto and piecemeal character as an organization nor that it was likely that this devotion to mere form would lead to a nullification of Brotherhood at the first strain. And this latter, indeed, did occur with several members. They even forgot, and still forget, that H. P. Blavatsky herself declared that it were better to do away with the Society rather than to destroy Brotherhood, and that she herself declared the European part of it free and independent. These worshippers think that there must be a continuance of the old form (magic based?) in order for the Society to have an international character. But the real unity and prevalence, and the real internationalism, do not consist in having a single organization. They are found in the similarity of aim, of aspiration, of purpose, of teaching, of ethics. Freemasonry - a great and important part of the true Theosophical Movement - is universally international; and yet its organizations are numerous, autonomous, sovereign, independent. The Grand Lodge of the state of New York, including its different Lodges, is independent of all others in any state, yet every member is a Mason and all are working on a single plan. Freemasons aver all the world belong to the great International Masonic Body, yet they have everywhere their free and independent government. The American Group, being by geographical and other conditions outwardly separate, began the change so as to be in government free and independent, but in basis, aspiration, aim and work united with all true Theosophists. Path, August, 1895‖ - ‗The Theosophical Movement‘ Freemasonic groups and the factions they‘ve founded have always been used as international instruments of subversion the world over. And assassination and espionage was the name of the game. One infamous such assassination carried out by such a Freemasonic group, namely the assassination of the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, led to the onset of World War I: ―On 28 June 1914, Gavrilo Princip, a Bosnian-Serb student and member of Young Bosnia, assassinated the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria in Sarajevo, Bosnia.‖ –Wikipedia: World War I The Young Bosnia society in which Gavrilo Princip played an active role was a Freemasonic creation from the get-go, a single faction of what was known as the greater Youth Movement of the day. As we learn from the pages of Occult Theocracy: ―(Giusseppe) Mazzini had already established his reputation as an international intriguer. The "Youth Movement" of the day was already organized : — The societies composing it were : — Young Italy — founded by Mazzini 1831 Young Poland — founded by Simon Konarski.... 1834 Young England — founded by Benjamin Disraeli 1834 Young Europe — founded by Mazzini 1834 Young Switzerland — founded by Melegari (Emery).. 1835 Young Ireland — founded by Smith O'Brien 1843 Young Germany — founded by Hecker & Struve.... 1848‖ - Occult Theocracy (Lady Queensborough, Edith
―Mazzini set himself to study the problem of the international organization of Freemasonry, and in 1870 reached an agreement with Pike for the creation of the Supreme Rite. The FrancoPrussian (German) war (July 19, 1870 – May 10, 1871), which, enabled the King of Piedmont, already called King of Italy, to take Rome, favoured the abolition of the temporal power of the Pope, and at this time the constitution of central high masonry was decreed and signed between
Albert Pike and Giuseppe Mazzini. The act of creation is dated Sept. 20, 1870, the day upon which the army of invasion, commanded by the Freemason, General Cadorna, entered the Eternal City. The two founders divided their powers according to the following plan. To Pike was given dogmatic authority and the title of Sovereign Pontiff of Universal Freemasonry, while Mazzini held the executive authority with the title of Sovereign Chief of Political Action. Mazzini evinced great deference towards the views of the Patriarch of Charleston and begged him to draw up the statutes of the grades of the Supreme Secret Rite which would thus be the liturgic bonds of the members of centralized high masonry. Albert Pike, in honour of his Templar Baphomet (the Knight‘s Templar god Baphomet; this word is a cognate of the word ‗Behemoth,‘ which is the name of Azazel‘s cherub. Azazel‘s cherub Behemoth, and by extension, Azazel, was known to the Knight‘s Templar as Baphomet), which was in the keeping of his first and historic Supreme Council, named the order the New and Reformed Palladian Rite or New and Reformed Palladium.‖ - Occult Theocracy (Lady Queensborough, Edith Starr Miller; published in1933
Enter the Oddfellows:
"Oddfellow is the name adopted by the members of a society founded in London (England) towards 1788. Their meeting places were called Lodges, as in Masonry, and many were dissolved under the suspicion that their character was subversive, though the visible aims of the fraternity were simply mutual help and diversion. But the society, changing its location and its name, continued a precarious existence till, in 1809, several members founded a new lodge at Manchester (England). Then some of them separated in 1813 and formed the independent Order of Oddfellows (I. 0. 0. F.) the members of the general council of which were all to reside at Manchester (England). The order was introduced in America, in 1819, by the blacksmith (Thomas) Wildey, who founded Washington Lodge No. 1, at Baltimore (Maryland). This town became the headquarters of the American and Canadian Oddfellows and, thanks to the energy of Wildey, the order made great headway and spread with rapidity. Longfellow and Holbrook, while exchanging views on the Cabala, had formed the project of creating a Satanic rite in which the adepts would be instructed in Black Magic…Longfellow obtained from Wildey the authorization secretly to use the Order of the Oddfellows for the initiations of the second class, which was to form an absolutely secret rite and to have its centre at Hamilton (Canada). The adepts of the second class Oddfellows, practicing Satanism, then took the name of Re-TheurgistOptimates 2(used by the Palladists also) and Longfellow became the Grand Priest of the ‗New Evocative Magic.‘‖ - Occult Theocracy (Lady Queensborough, Edith Starr Miller) (2. Gerard de Nerval, Les Illumines, p.
172. Translation : "Several philosophers of this period followed Quintus Aucler in this revival of the ideas of the school of Alexandria. It is towards the same period that Dupont (de Nemours) published his Philosophy of the Universe, founded on the same elements of adoration of planetary intelligences. Likewise, he established, between man and God, a chain of immortal spirits which he called " Optimates" and through whom any illuminé can have communication. It is always the doctrine of the " ammoneans " gods, the " eons " or " eloims '' of antiquity. Footnote to Occult Theocracy p. 213 (by Lady Queensborough, Edith Starr Miller). Magic practices invoke the fallen angels, themselves part of a group known as the Elohim/eloims, as spoken of above. This Dupont was none other than: ―Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours (December 14, 1739 – August 7, 1817) was a French nobleman, writer, economist, and government official, who was the father of Eleuthère Irénée du Pont, the founder of E.I. duPont de Nemours and Company, patriarch and progenitor of one of America's richest business dynasties of the 19th and 20th centuries.‖ – Wikipedia: Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours) (Wrote Giuseppe Mazzini to Albert Pike in 1870 A.D.: ―we must create a supreme rite, which will remain unknown, to which we will call those Masons of high degree whom we shall select (Jan. 22, 1870).‖ - Occult Theocracy (Lady Queensborough, Edith Starr Miller)
Ground zero of this magical movement has always been the Oxford University and the British Museum, which contained and where could be studied such works as The Book of Enoch and many other such works which talk of the story of the rebellious fallen angels: ―The British Museum Reading Room, situated in the centre of the Great Court of the British Museum, used to be the main reading room of the British Library. During the period of the British Library, access was restricted to registered researchers only…The Reading Room was used by a large number of famous figures, including notably Mohammad Ali Jinnah Karl Marx, Oscar Wilde, Bram Stoker, Mahatma Gandhi, Rudyard Kipling, George Orwell, George Bernard Shaw, Mark Twain, Lenin, Norbert Elias, Virginia Woolf, Arthur Rimbaud and H. G. Wells…Room 2 has also had distinguished users, including Thomas Babington Macaulay, William Thackeray, Robert Browning, Giuseppe Mazzini, Charles Darwin and Charles Dickens.‖ – Wikipedia: British Museum
And one must add the likes of high-degree Freemasonic magicians Alistair Crowley and Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers to this list, well known members of the magic order known as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. In fact, the three founders of The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, William Robert Woodman, William Wynn Westcott, and Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers were Freemasons and members of Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia (S.R.I.A.)(the S.R.I.A., which accepted only Master Masons, was originally founded in 1867 A.D.). William Wynn Westcott and Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers were also Theosophical Society members (founded 1875 A.D.), as was Theosophical Society President Annie Besant who exclaims in her very own words: ―I would go out and study all day at the British Museum.‖ - Annie Besant: An Autobiography The Theosophical Society was a group rooted in Theosophy: ―Theosophy was the name finally given to the whole vast renaissance in the world of magic (which involves the invocation of the rebellious fallen angels) that affected many thinkers so profoundly at the beginning of the century.‖ – The Dawn of Magic (Louis Pauwells & Jacques Bergier,1960
A.D.) (aka The Morning of the Magicians)
Albert Pike himself ―became an Oddfellow, some time in the forties (1840‘s), and in 1850 entered the Masonic Fraternity. After that he gradually ceased to be active as an Oddfellow. Soon becoming prominent in Masonry he advanced rapidly to the highest honours…Towards this epoch, Pike and (―Pike's great friend, Gallatin‖) Mackey received the visit of Longfellow. This Longfellow was a Scottish Rites Mason who, in 1837, had taken up his residence in the United States, becoming the intimate friend and private secretary of Moses Holbrook, then Sovereign Commander of the Supreme Council of Charleston. The intimacy between Longfellow and (“the Jew, Moses”) Holbrook became quickly serious as both had thoroughly studied the occult sciences and enjoyed discussing the mysteries of the Cabala.‖
- Occult Theocracy (Lady Queensborough, Edith Starr Miller)
The Cabala/Kabala/Qabala as first taught to angels by God who then taught them to mankind. Related to Freemasonry is Rosicrucianism. The Freemason‘s Rosicrucian brothers are
fellow players in the greater Theosophical Movement. The word ‗Rosicrucian‘ is German for ‗Rose Cross.‘ The 18th Degree in Freemasonry is commonly known as the Rose-Croix (Rose Cross), a fact showing their relation to and establishing a link between these two otherwise seemingly diverse organizations. Dr Sigismund Bacstrom, an important Rosicrucian scholar of the alchemical sciences, wrote in Bacstrom’s Rosicrucian Society (circa late 18th to early 19th Centuries A.D.) of ―the August most ancient and most learned (Rosicrucian) Society, the Investigators of Divine, Spiritual and Natural Truth (which Society, more than two centuries and a half ago, did separate themselves from the Freemasons…).‖ ―It is vital to understand that this past interchange between Masonry and these various occult groups did not stop in the 18th century. If anything, it has grown more prominent in the past century. There is something about the Lodge that has always attracted sorcerers. The historical list of occultists and Witches in the last century who were Freemasons reads like a Who‟s Who of 20th century occultism: Arthur Edward Waite—occult writer and Masonic historian; Dr. Wynn Westcott—member of the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia and founding member of the occult (Hermetic) Order of the Golden Dawn—the most influential magical society of the 19th - early 20th century; S. L. MacGregor Mathers—co-founder of the Golden Dawn; Aleister Crowley—master Satanist of this century and founder of the anti-christ religion of Thelema— claimed to be "The Great Beast 666"; Dr. Gerard Encaussé—(Papus) masterful author, teacher of the Tarot and leader of the occult Martiniste society (―Gerard Encausse (July 13, 1865 - 25 October 1916), whose esoteric pseudonym was Papus, was the Spanish-born French physician, hypnotist, and popularizer of occultism, who founded the modern Martinist Order…As a young man, Encausse spent a great deal of time at the Bibliothèque Nationale studying the Kabbalah, occult tarot, the sciences of magic and alchemy, and the writings of Eliphas Lévi. He joined the French Theosophical Society shortly after it was founded by Madame Blavatsky in 1884 - 1885, but he resigned soon after joining because he disliked the Society's emphasis on Eastern occultism. In 1888, he co-founded his own group, the Kabbalistic Order of the RoseCroix…Encausse was also a member of the Hermetic Brotherhood of Light and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn temple in Paris, as well as Memphis-Misraim and probably other esoteric or paramasonic organizations, as well as being an author of several occult books.‖ – Wikipedia: Gérard Encausse); Dr. Theodore Reuss—head of the O.T.O., a German occult/satanic society which made Crowley its head for the British Isles; George Pickingill (1816-1909 A.D.) —the Grand Master Witch of 19th century England, leader of the "Pickingill covens" (Pickingill is what is known as a cunning man. ―The cunning folk (men and women) in Britain were professional or semi-professional practitioners of magic active from at least the fifteenth up until the early twentieth century.‖ - Wikipedia: Cunning folk in Britain; the magician Aleister Crowley was said to have been a Pickingill initiate); Annie Besant—leader of the occult Theosophical society and Co-Masonic hierarch (Yes, there are female Masons!); Alice Bailey—founder of the protoNew Age organization, Lucis (formerly Lucifer) Trust; Bishop Charles W.

Additionally, he was a 32° Mason and a Shriner‖
The Theosophical Society is the latest player amongst a greater Theosophical Movement of which the Freemasonic and Rosicrucian movements were a part: ―The Theosophical Society, in its brief history, has produced a vast field of literature embracing science, philosophy and religion- as well as mysticism and occultism. The Secret Doctrine by Madame H.P. Blavatsky is an almost inexhaustible source. Besides the Theosophical Society, there are other contemporary movements which emphasize some particular phase of this universal teaching: The Christian Mystics, the Rosicrucian Fellowship, the Masonic Order, to name only a few.‖ - PREFACE from The Theosophical Seal (Arthur M. Coon) These societies had embarked upon The Great Work. The Great Work was ―the mystery of the lawlessness‖ which was ―already at work‖ (hence the name, The Great Work) in the time of Jesus, albeit in the form of its original Masonic incarnation: Now concerning the (Second) coming of our Lord Jesus Christ…Let no one deceive you in any way; for that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first (a reference to the American Revolution of 1776), and the man of lawlessness (a reference to the beast with the mortal wound that was healed) is revealed (takes office), the son of perdition…the mystery of lawlessness (this term ―the mystery of the lawlessness‖ is in reference to the coming of the lawless one, that is, of the beast with the mortal wound that was healed, by the activity of Satan. See 2Thessalonians 2:9) is already at work (the coming of the lawless one, that is, of the beast with the mortal wound that was healed, was a scheme of Satan already in the works at the time of Jesus.); only he (a reference to the American Presidential winner of 2012) who now restrains it (who now restrains the revealing of the lawless one) will do so until he is out of the way (until he dies or is incapacitated, unable to finish out his fully elected term). And then the lawless one (the beast with the mortal wound that was healed) will be revealed (then the beast with the mortal wound that was healed will assume office as a matter of succession)… 2Thessalonians 2:1,3,7,8 The Biblical ―Mystery of Lawlessness‖ described in the second chapter of 2Thessalonians began with the placement of the cornerstone, of the very first brick in the masonary construct which was the legendary Tower of Babel in year 1 A.L. on the Masonic Calendar in 4000 B.C. This Mystery of Lawlessness concerning America has been in the works even prior to the appearance of Jesus himself. America is a construct of the rebellious fallen angels acting through members of the human genus of our Earth. According to Manly P. Hall, 50 of the 56 signatories of the Declaration of Independence were known Freemasons. Likely the rest were simply unknown members. Famous Freemasons who played an important role in the foundation of America included George Washington, John Hancock, Paul Revere, Patrick Henry, Ben Franklin, the (French) Marquis de Lafayette, (the German) Baron Von Steuben and Richard Henry Lee, who was related to Confederate General Robert E. Lee (it must be noted one of the most famous of Freemasonic documents, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry was authored by former Confederate General Albert Pike circa. 1871 A.D. Such Confederate officers were an essential
ingredient of the secret society known as the Ku Klux Klan, whose leader is known as the Grand Wizard). Tubal Cain, a descendent of Cain the son of the angel Azazel by Adam‘s wife Eve, was known as the father of witchcraft and sorcery. His name is a Freemasonic password (Master Mason (3°)). Magic, which includes the invocation of fallen angels, is likewise practiced amongst members of the Initiates Circle in the Bohemian Grove in California, members of which include many modern-day famous political and corporate elites. Doubtless many have Freemasonic backgrounds. Possible players in the modern Theosophical Movement? You make the call. One should think the Theosophical Movement circa 2010 A.D. to have progressed to include an organized collection of more worldly, more august, more secular economic-based organizations and corporations of high strategic value and import. Just a little food for thought. The noted Freemason Manly P. Hall, in his Lectures on Ancient Philosophy reveals that: ―From the Arabians C. R. C. (the Rosicrucian Christian Rosenkrantz (Rose-Cross)) also learned of the elemental peoples and how, with their aid, it was possible to gain admission to the ethereal world where dwelt the genii and nature spirits. He thus discovered that the magical creatures of the Arabian Nights Entertainment actually existed…He was further instructed concerning…the rituals of magic and invocation…and the binding of the genii.‖ What he learned in truth was of the jinn entrapped within the desert, of Azazel and of his angels! This knowledge he brought with him to Germany, and armed therewith he established the Rosicrucian Society which was dedicated to this goal, circa 1400 A.D. The group‘s publication of the Fama Fraternitatis in 1607 A.D. and the Confessio Fraternitatis in 1616 A.D. broadcast these beliefs to the world. Indeed, according to Chapter IV of the Confessio Fraternitatis, Rosicrucians, like all practitioners of magic, appeal for help from angels and spirits for the revelation of God‘s mysteries. It must be noted Walt Disney was a member of The Ancient and Mystical Order Rosae Crucis (AMORC), a Rosicrucian order which traditionally traces its origin to the ancient Egyptian mystery schools who revered the rebellious fallen angels as gods (Disney tells the story of the jinn of the Arabian Nights Entertainment in his full length animated classic, Aladdin). As evidenced in the extent of the influence of magic in most of his animated classics, Walt Disney was overly obsessed with the Occult. Walt was well versed in the teachings of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and of S.L. MacGregor Mathers who was a translator of such historic magical texts as The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abra-Melin the Mage. It must be also be noted that the man who founded AMORC in 1915 A.D., Dr. H. Spencer Lewis, was himself in contact with Aleister Crowley and the Ordo Templi Orientis (See Larson‘s Book of Cults, Larson 1984 p.306), with AMORC even receiving a ringing endorsement from the O.T.O. AMORC counts many Freemason‘s amongst its membership. Indeed, according to the U.S. Grand Lodge, Ordo Templi Orientis website (oto-usa.org): ―Although officially founded at the beginning of the 20th century e.v., O.T.O. represents a surfacing and confluence of the divergent streams of esoteric wisdom and knowledge which were originally divided and driven underground by political and religious intolerance during the dark ages. It draws from the traditions of the Freemasonic, Rosicrucian and Illuminist movements of the 18th and 19th centuries, the crusading Knights Templars of the middle ages and early Christian Gnosticism and the Pagan Mystery Schools.‖ According to Chapter IV of the Confessio Fraternitatis, Rosicrucians, like practitioners of magick, appeal for help from angels and spirits for the revelation of God‘s mysteries (compare to the account in 1Samuel 28:5-14). Their practice is akin to the conjuring of, and invocation of, spirits. Though the Rosicrucians ―confess Christ,‖ acknowledging his existence (though not
necessarily embracing him), they also disavowed the Papacy of the Roman Catholic Church as Chapter XIII of the Confessio Fraternitatis so reveals. It must be noted German Protestant Reformer Martin Luther (November 10, 1483 – February 18, 1546 A.D.) was a purported Rosicrucian, with Luther‘s personal seal incorporating a Rosicrucian (rose-cross) motif. Martin Luther officially split with the Roman Catholic Church with his posting of the 95 Thesis, a key event in the Churches storied decline. Complicit with Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism is Theosophy. The creation of the Theosophical Society was ordered by the rebel angels themselves: ―The Theosophical Society was founded in New York in 1875, with the avowed object of forming a nucleus for a Universal Brotherhood, and its founders state that they believe the Indian Mahatmas (who are the rebellious fallen angels) directed them to establish such a society.‖ - Echoes
from the Orient Chapter I (William Q. Judge, 1890 A.D.)
. It must be noted the Theosophical Society was founded by a group which included Freemasons. The Theosophical Society was at its establishment the latest incarnation in a long string of movements (which began with the placement of the cornerstone, of the very first brick in the masonry construct which was the legendary Tower of Babel in year 1 A.L. on the Masonic Calendar in 4000 B.C.) and which was established through the direct actions of the rebellious fallen angels as part of a larger movement known as the Theosophical Movement for the express purpose of re-establishing the now-interred rebellious fallen angel Azazel‘s reign upon our Earth (as well as restoring the fortunes of his fellow rebel angels of course). This is a mystery most profound! The angels work through secretive societies within a larger corporate structure to make humans do their will: ―The Rosicrucian fraternity, the Freemasons, (the Ancient Order of) Foresters, are all remnants of former endeavours to inculcate and implant (through their use of ELF waves) the WisdomReligion (concerning the fallen angels) in the hearts of men.‖ - Modern Theosophy: An Outline of Its
Principles (Claude Falls Wright, FTS, 1894 A.D.)
Theosophist author Claude Falls Wright speaks of the greater Theosophical Movement circa 1894 A.D.: ―…all great philosophers and thinkers who have offered any explanation of life, the founders of every great religion, have been Theosophists, and, we affirm, have all taught, consciously or unconsciously to themselves, some aspect or other of the vast system which has been so roughly outlined in this volume. Christian writers ascribe the development of the ancient Eclectic Theosophical System to the third century of their era; but there were Theosophists before that time. Diogenes Laertius speaks of the philosophy as antedating the dynasty of the Ptolemies, disclosing its founder in the Egyptian Hierophant, Pot Amun - a Coptic name, signifying a priest consecrated to Amun, the god of wisdom. History shows its revival in the Eclectic System of Ammonius Saccas, in whose time certainly the word Theosophy originated. The object of this philosopher was almost identical with our own- to reconcile all sects, peoples and nations under one common faith, and to establish a belief in one Supreme, Eternal, Unknown and Unnamed Power or Principle, through which the Universe came into being, and by which it was governed with immutable and eternal laws. Again, we find Theosophists in Germany in the 12th century,
holding identical views of life and working to the same end, and also in the 15th century. There was a society formed in London in or about the year 1665, which strove after a like purpose. All these, not to speak of the host of seers who have appeared from time to time, of the Swedenborg and Bohme type, whose explanation of nature differed but in minor detail from that offered by the modern Theosophists. Theosophy is the Wisdom-Religion, the archaic philosophy which was the fount of knowledge in every ancient country having claims to civilization, and from which have descended in less mystic garb the sciences of the present day known to the professors of our colleges as Chemistry, Astronomy, etcs. However much said professors may object to the statement. But whether known as Theosophy or by any other name, the same Wisdom-Religion has existed always and will show itself on earth and among men for all eternity: the sequence of martyrs to the great universal truths has never once been broken; known or unknown they will appear and suffer again and again, ever adding to their ranks however, until some day, at the birth of the purified seventh race, mankind will reawaken to find the chair of materialistic philosophy vacant and decayed. It was said in another part of this work that about once every hundred years special efforts to regenerate mankind are made by those in whose guardianship is the philosophy, and a retrospective glance would show where many of these have been undertaken and under whose management. But to trace them all completely would now be a difficult task, for the simple reason that all have not been made in the shape of public movements. They have been in a manner suitable to the exigencies of the times. It is only in our cycle that an open attempt has been made, and this for the reason that the age demands it. Formerly work was often done through kings and rulers, instead of through public movements, because people had then less independence and the king held more the position of dictator than he does in this age. We constantly hear of wise men, alchemists, soothsayers, appearing at various courts and working marvels sufficient to attract the attention and wonder of the monarch These, however, were but their outward signs; in truth they worked to other ends than miracles. They often influenced the prince's mind (through their use of ELF waves), so that he altered his method of ruling his kingdom, thereby perhaps bringing about results which not only affected his own subjects, but, by reaction, the peoples of other countries, and afterwards the world as a whole. But although it is for these reasons hard to trace the uprising of all such efforts, yet with some we have no difficulty. Toward the end of the 14th century we may place the founding of the later Rosicrucian (―do you imagine that there were no mystic solemn unions of men, seeking the same end through the same means, before the Arabians of Damus, in 1378, taught to a wandering Jew the secrets which founded the institution of the Rosicrucians?" Bulwer Lytton in Zanoni) fraternity, one of the brightest and most successful of bodies of philosophers, although a secret one. The labours of Jacob Boehme and of his teacher, John George Gichtel, had their effect at the close of the 17th century. (In 1672, when Louis XIV, laid siege, to Amsterdam, Gichtel, by the power of his will, is reported by his disciples to have exercised influence enough to cause the raising of the siege, and afterwards the names of the very regiments andn squadrons he had seen in his vision were found in the papers. Princes of Germany and even sovereigns consulted him."). The one however which comes nearest to our own time is that which directly preceded the Theosophical Society, at the close of the 18th century of the Christian era. This was the famous "Société de l'Harmonie," founded by Mesmer in Paris in 1783. The success of these efforts is not, it should be remembered, any more absolutely certain than is anything else in nature. The Adepts are not infallible. Their extended insight into the workings of natural law enables them to place the cause farther back, the effect further forward, than our more limited vision permits us to. But this is all they claim. The
mistakes of one century are corrected in the efforts of the next, so that in course of time they may lessen enormously with respect, at least, to that race whose development is being forwarded; but so long as there is a limitation of vision, finity- and work on the material plane of necessity implies such, there must be error. The effort of last century was a failure because of the too socialistic aspect of the mystical doctrine put forward. There was a definite teaching albeit a secret one- similar to Theosophy as now known, given to the members of Mesmer's society. But the true philosophy did not come to the front. "Fraternité, Liberté, Egalité" constituted the only philosophy the people of the period would listen to. Hence the Reign of Terror of 1794 (in France during the French Revolution). Even such as Count St.Germain and the wonder-working Cagliostro (June 2, 1743 – August 26, 1795; Alessandro Cagliostro was an Italian/Sicilian magic-practicing Freemason. Pope Pius VI accused him of threatening the very survival of the Catholic Church (See The Seven Ordeals of Count Cagliostro: The Greatest Enchanter of the Eighteenth Century by Iain McCalman (2003 A.D.)). From Sicily emerged the secret brotherhood known as Cosa Nostra, the Sicilian mafia, which emerged during the mid 19th Century), the successor of Mesmer (May 23, 1734 – March 5, 1815. Mesmer was the father of hypnosis and master of the trance. To him we owe thanks for the word ‗mesmerize‘), could not stay the torrent of materialism; they were laughed at, and accounted charlatans and falsifiers (by, amongst others as in Mesmer‘s case, Benjamin Franklin). In her "Theosophical Glossary" (article Mesmer) Madame Blavatsky says: "Of these three men (St Germain, Mesmer, Cagliostro) who were at first regarded as quacks, Mesmer is already vindicated. The justification of the two others will follow in the next century (1892)…Of course each movement makes use as far as possible of the work of its predecessors; so that, for instance, the "revival of Freemasonry" has become almost a byword, nobody being able to tell exactly when or where the craft (Freemasonry is known as ‗the craft‘) had its origin or founding. The same thing may be said of Rosicrucianism, and indeed of Theosophy itself. It is therefore not surprising, in view of the fact that Cagliostro and others worked to reestablish lodges of Freemasonry, to find H.P.Blavatsky, the nineteenth century messenger, offering herself at the outset of her career as the new leader of the Freemasons. This she did before 1875 to some of the heads of the craft (to the heads of the Freemasons) in America, naming herself as the messenger from the eastern Brotherhood. It was but the Karma of Freemasonry, which was the movement that had been carried over from the last century to the present one. But even if the Freemasons had wished to accept her as their head, they could not have done so, since the traditions of that Fraternity militate against the admission of women. This was probably a later introduction than the days of Cagliostro, who is said to have organized more than one "lodge" composed entirely of women. Madame Blavatsky's services being declined, she set to work to form the nucleus of a new body. Gathering together some of those on earth who had previously worked with her, she started the Theosophical Society, with Col. H.S. Olcott, William Q. Judge and others… The Theosophical Society, as at present constituted, has three objects (the second of which is intended ―To promote the study of Aryan and other Eastern literatures, religions and sciences‖), which three, if properly carried out and fully understood, must result in the recognition of the mystical (read: the magic) system known as Theosophy (Wright also refers to it as ―the mystical system known as Theosophy‖). Thus the Society is bound by no beliefs, no dogmas, throws its doors wide open to all, and has only endeavour, that of uniting all sects and peoples into one harmonious whole- producing a humanity of philosophers, or true lovers of wisdom…Then, religionists and mystics at heart, whether subscribing to a creed or not, let them study under the Second Object, and they will find that humanity has ever placed its hopes elsewhere than on this globe. They will find that from the dawn of the
Aryan race down to the present time mystics and sages have always walked the earth and taught the peoples the one truth, Universal Brotherhood- the one doctrine, Theosophy. No wonder than they are Theosophists. For once the keynote has been struck, once the Wisdom-Religion is shown to have existed ever, in all creeds, it takes very little to convince anyone with higher perceptions than those which look on clay, of its verity… It seeks to reveal the true origin of our various religions, and to show that the same mysticism which inspired the founding of Christianity sowed the seed for the growth of all the creeds of the world…External differences are due merely to incidental causes diversity in the methods of giving their wisdom among individual teachers, natural modifications and changes of the original philosophy after lapse of time, or the varied interpretations of it by the priests into whose keeping it was entrusted. Theosophy therefore in this sense is the Religion of religions. But Theosophy is distinctly a science. It is religion with a philosophical basis…In Theosophy therefore science blends with religion. Religion, according to that theosophical view, being but a clearer perception of, a deeper insight into life, by man, freed from superstition and emotion and grounded in true philosophy, it must lead to wisdom…If the insight it gives be added to the practical and intellectual powers of our modern scientist we can set no limit to his advance in knowledge…The truth is that each of the world's great religions is but the remnant of an ancient science…it is the hope…that by the light of Theosophy the old wisdom (first introduced to mankind by the fallen angels) may be restored.‖ - Modern Theosophy: An Outline of Its Principles (Claude Falls
Wright, FTS, 1894 A.D.)
Magic, which involves the invocation of fallen angels, is practiced in high-degree Freemasonry:
―In 1888 (alternatively, 1887), the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was born, beginning a renaissance of interest in the occult that has continued to the present day. It is impossible to overstate the importance of the Golden Dawn to modern occultists; not only through its rituals, but also through its personalities and, of course, the Order‘s making available a large body of occult lore that would otherwise have remained unknown or hidden in obscurity…We cannot look at the (Hermetic Order of the) Golden Dawn in isolation from its own origins. It is descended from a myriad of esoteric traditions including Rosicrucianism, Theosophy and Freemasonry – the latter in its own right, as well as via the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia (SRIA), a scholarly and ceremonial association open to Master Masons only…the Isis-Urania Lodge (of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn)…was founded by Dr. William Wynn Westcott, Dr. William Woodman, and Samuel Liddell (“MacGregor”) Mathers. Not only were all three Master Masons, Westcott and Mathers were also members of the Theosophical Society. Most importantly though, the three were a ruling triumvirate that managed the affairs of the SRIA.‖ - Wikipdeia ―The (Hermetic Order of the) Golden Dawn was not the only influence upon (Gerald) Gardner. Freemasonry has also had a tremendous impact upon the Wicca. Not only were the three founders of Isis-Urania Temple Masons, so too were (Aleister) Crowley (a 33rd Degree Freemason) and Arthur Waite (A.E. Waite). Gardner and at least one member of the first Coven, Edith Woodford-Grimes, were both Co-Masons.‖ - History of Wicca in England: 1939 to the Present Day (Julia
Phillips, 2004 Edition)
All such Freemasonic magic groups invoke the rebellious fallen angels, including the angels Satan and Azazel. No wonder membership in the fraternal organizations of Freemasonry is condemned by the Roman Catholic Church with membership in such an organization being
considered a ―grave‖ and mortal sin. As a matter of fact, the Catholic Church considers Freemasonry to be a conspiratorial organization hostile to the Church and its doctrines. Pope Leo, in his Encyclical Letter dated April 20, 1884 A.D., Humanus Genus (On Freemasonry), describes Freemasonry and Freemasonic Organizations as being a ―foul plague,‖ and that people should ―tear the mask from Freemasonry…to let it be seen as it really is,‖ and ―as our predecessors have many times repeated, let no man think that he may for any reason whatsoever join the Masonic sect…as the whole principle and object of the sect lies in what is vicious and criminal, to join with these men or in any way to help them cannot be lawful,‖ and that ones association in such a group is regarded by the Church as being a ―grave sin,‖ in that ―these evil sects, in which is revived the contumacious (rebellious) spirit of the demon…Satan…together with his unsubdued perfidy (deliberate treachery) and deceit.‖ The letter states that ―at this period, the partisans of evil seem to be combining together, and to be struggling with united vehemence, led on or assisted by that strongly organized and widespread association called the Freemasons…that this Apostolic See denounced the sect of the Freemasons, and publicly declared its constitution, as contrary to law and right, to be pernicious no less to Christendom than to the State,‖ and ―that it is against the Church that the rage and the attack of the enemies are principally directed.‖ It also states that ―its (Freemasonry‘s) ultimate purpose…(is) the utter overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced (read: the Old New Order), and the substitution of a new state of things (read: a New World Order) in accordance with their ideas, of which the foundations and laws shall be drawn from mere naturalism,‖ and that ―the fundamental doctrine of the naturalists…is that the human nature and human reason ought in all things to be mistress and guide,― that ―they deny that anything has been taught by God.‖ It is the Church‘s belief ―their ultimate purpose‖ is ―the utter overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced, and the substitution of a new state of things in accordance with their ideas, of which the foundations and laws shall be drawn from mere naturalism.‖ The Church says ―they (Freemasons)…teach the great error of this age-- that a regard for religion should be held as an indifferent matter, and that all religions are alike.‖ As an affirmation to past denunciations of Freemasonry by the Roman Catholic Church, including condemnations by at least nine different popes in seventeen different pronouncements, and at no less than six Church councils, in the ―Declaration on Masonic Associations,‖ signed by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (who is now the current pope) with the approval of Pope John Paul II and dated November 26, 1983 A.D., states that ―the Church‘s negative judgment in regard to Masonic organizations remains unchanged, since their principles have always been considered irreconcilable with the doctrine of the Church, and, therefore, membership in them remains forbidden. The faithful, who enroll in Masonic associations are in a state of grave sin…‖ Indeed, speaking out against the supposed infallibility of the popes, eminent Freemason Albert Pike states: “No man or body of men can be infallible, and authorized to decide what other men shall believe, as to any tenet of faith.‖ (See Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry by Albert Pike (circa. 1871 A.D.)). The Roman Catholic Church‘s condemnation of Freemasonry is not unique in the annals of Christian history. Several Protestant churches, organizations and Christian ministries such as the Church of England and the Southern Baptist convention also reject various Freemasonic teachings as incompatible to the doctrines of Christianity.
The Roman Catholic Church has warred against those Masonic organizations at odds with itself beginning, the most notable group being the Knights Templars of the 13th Century A.D. We must not forget, America was founded by a group of persecuted pilgrims, victimized by a Roman Catholic Church which allowed no variance from their stated beliefs. America was in the beginning peopled by enemies of the Roman Catholic Church. America became a Mecca for those persecuted for religious reasons, the vast majority victims of the Roman Catholic Church and the Roman Inquisition established to combat the growth of Protestantism. Amongst this population were many Freemasons (indeed, 50 of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence were known Freemasons). Freemasons became affluent and influential, thriving in early America and throughout its generations up until today, at such time as their authority has reached its peak, a power unsurpassed in all the annals of the world, while during this same period the Roman Catholic Church has seen its supremacy increasingly wane. Is it any surprise their Freemasonic descendants should be bent on its destruction? Many current Freemasons unknowingly (and some knowingly) do the bidding of Satan. The Skull and Bones (which derives its name from the flag flown by ships of the Knights Templar group who sought the overthrow of the power of the Roman Catholic Church), an organization of which many prominent American politicians of today enjoy membership, including ex-American President George W. Bush, is a Masonic organization, a secret-society. Many prominent American politicians throughout the history of the United States (including crucial members of our Founding Fathers, George Washington included) are or have been Freemasons, including George H. W. Bush, who once proudly and prematurely announced the establishment of the Freemasonic New World Order, the ultimate goal mentioned in the Masonic Fama Fraternitis (as opposed to the Old Word Order headed by the Roman Catholic Church). By the Freemasons, Satan is known as the Unknown Superior, Azazel as the Great Architect. The number of Freemasons in the United States today numbers in the millions; most are oblivious to their complicity with rebellious fallen angels. Others have willingly joined their rebellion against God.‖
