The Dawn Of A New day: On Show Before The World – The Black Family In All Its Beauty, Elegance And Power

At 11 PM Eastern Standard Time in the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama was crowned the greatest inspirational political figure in human history.

After almost two years of relentless campaigning, whistle-stop tours, public appearances, eclectic speeches and finally the blow out electoral mandate from what can only be described as the greatest historical political election machinery of all time, cemented Barack Obama as America’s first Black President of the United States.

The whole world sat in awe – spellbound by the charismatic atmosphere which enveloped the consciousness of men and women, kings and queens, presidents and pope, rich and poor, Black and White…

In my lifetime, the world has had in its recent history, three dramatic paradigmatic shifts:- (1) the Berlin Wall came down in 1989 (2) the Twin Towers in NY fell in 2001 (3) A Black man suitably named OBAMA* became President of the United States of America in 2008.

All that’s left to happen is for JESUS* to come back again!!!

On the dawn of a new day.

With the making of history, what stood out more forceful than even the unanimous victory for Barack and the Democrats was the “IMAGE” of the transcendent, transformational, timeless portrait of the Black family in all its glory as President Obama, Michelle and their daughters stood proud before the whole world.

Never again, will the “Image” of the Black family be held up to the historical smear job done to it by the forces of malignant evil which had perpetrated a lie for hundreds of years, if not thousands.

Never again should any Black man, Black Father, Black son or Black brother have an excuse to forfeit his responsibility to his wife or children or for the Black woman not to be the “Rock” God intended for her to be within her family.

I believe the time has come and in the immortal words of President-Elect Obama – “Yes We Can”…

We are reminded in the Sacred Scriptures that the prophets longed to see these days that we have been blessed to live in. Yet so cherish these greatest of times, yet worst of times.

Now is the time for shared HOPE*.

Now is the time for shared values.

Now is the time for Black folks to rise up and experience the God-given opportunities which we have been given and do all that we can by the grace we have been given to assume our rightful place in the world.

The hope of planet earth lies within the bosom of the Black family.

No longer can we afford to be marginalised, disenfranchised and deprived of the right to forge the eternal bonds of unity, oneness and purpose as a people.

We must work within our families to remove the generational curses of marital breakdown, single-parent homes, drug-dependent youths, welfare stranded individuals, uneducated relics of the past and the treacherous ghost of the legacy of human slavery imposed on our foreparents as a blot upon the souls of a people.

The Black family stands as the last great beacon of moral virtue and hope in a world tether-tottering on the precipice of extinction and annihilation.

Never will we allow the “Light” on a hill to be extinguished by the forces of cynicism, doubt and fear.

We must reflect that "Eternal Flame" which is Christ in every aspect of life.

We must show the world that when God created man from the soil of the ground that He wanted to exemplify to the entire Universe the power of His Glory in the human family – Black men, White men, Latino men, Asian men and every child of Adam’s race.

Today is indeed the dawn of a new day.

We are now left without excuse!!!

Be inspired!!!

IN GOD WE TRUST – IN “Politicians” WE BUST: The Machiavellian Religious Politics of Greed, Corruption & Highway Robbery

In a 1993 book, “WHO WILL TELL THE PEOPLE” by William Greider, he talks about the collapse of the Savings & Loans in the 1980’s and how the banking industry, its regulators, and how both political parties complicity agreed to let the financial CRISIS* fester until it reached (hundreds of billions of dollars), precisely so the banks wouldn't have to pay it and the TAXPAYERS would HAVE TO BAIL out these beleaguered institutions.

Greider cites Kenneth McLean, staff director of the Senate Banking Committee: "Let's let the problem build up and dump it on the taxpayers." And Robert Dugger, lobbyist for the American Bankers Association: "Everyone knew the game was: Democrats don't bring this up. Republicans don't bring this up."

Again in 2008 (on the precipice of Administration change), America’s TAXPAYERS is once again gripped, saddled and slapped this time with a “ONE-TRILLION DOLLAR” debt bail out of the said banking and investments institutions that made billions of dollars in profits (with CEO’s creaming as much $25 million in bonuses per year) over the last 5 years while they bet against mortgage market trends without fear of reprisal or censure from the political establishment regulators.

Let us look at how we got here…

In the 1500’s, Prince Machiavelli who is considered by many to be the founder of modern political science felt that political thought lies in his freeing political action from moral considerations.

Machiavelli insisted that morals have no place in politics…

That people are fundamentally bad…

And the end justifies the means…

In other words, he "abolished the moral problem" for politics.

For example, consider Machiavelli's practical advice on how to gain power:

"You must recognize that there are two ways of fighting: by means of law, and by means of force. The first belongs properly to man, the second to animals; but since the first is often insufficient, it is necessary to resort to the second… Nor did a prince ever lack legitimate reasons by which to color his bad faith.”

In 1840, Alexis de Tocqueville, a French politician and writer, published his famous book, “DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA”, still considered by many to be the greatest interpretive work ever written on the United States.

De Tocqueville said that America's greatness was due to her passion for righteousness, “America is great because America is good. When America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great."

De Tocqueville foresaw the dangerous trend of our present government, but was unable to name it: "I think, then, that the species of oppression by which democratic nations are menaced is unlike anything which ever before existed in the world; our contemporaries will find no prototype of it in their memories. I seek in vain for an expression which will accurately convey the whole of the idea I have formed of it; the old words 'despotism' and 'tyranny' are inappropriate. The thing itself is new, and, since I cannot name, I must attempt to define it."

The word that de Tocqueville was looking for hadn't yet been invented: "totalitarianism."

Others would label it “ANTICHRIST”

Totalitarianism comes into being when all the governing and managing power of a society, both its political and its economic power, is concentrated in the centralized bureaucracy of the state.

This is the case when our government combines with the FINANCIAL POWER BROKERS - when both economic and political powers sleep in the same bed.

As we race towards the second decade of the 21st century, we find ourselves in the midst of rapid and profound change. We see our workers' paychecks able to buy fewer and fewer necessities each year. We see our financial institutions looted by professional crooks (called bankers & hedge funds managers), prison populations soaring, teenage gang violence exploding and our public schools rotting away.

We see our once-beautiful Hawaii covered with concrete. We see un-happiness everywhere! What went wrong? Instead of richer and happier, we see that traditional economic development has actually made us poorer and un-happier.

Indeed, history has shown us (very forcefully) that the pursuit of traditional economic development is actually the pursuit of un-happiness. Who (or what) has benefited from traditional economic development?

Have we considered that widespread un-happiness might be due to faulty economic theory? Could the problem be that happiness is un-economical? Or worse, is it possible that un-happiness is good for corporate profits?

"Economics plays a central but crucial role in shaping the activities of the modern world, inasmuch as it supplies the criteria of what is 'economic' and what is 'uneconomic,' and there is no other set of criteria that exercises a greater influence over the actions of individuals and groups as well as over those of governments."

Economist E.F. Schumacher argues that "practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist… It is ideas, not vested interests, which are dangerous for good or evil."

Economist John Maynard Keynes asks “can capitalism survive? No. I do not think it can… There is inherent in the capitalist system a tendency toward self-destruction."

Economist Joseph Alois Schumpeter believes that "America is becoming a land of private greed and public squalor."

Former Labor Secretary Robert B. Reich is adamant that “if the truth be known, we are on the verge of losing an entire generation of our young people, killing and dying in the streets of America."

U.S. Representative Ron Dellums suggests that "form determines content. Corporations are machines."

So what's wrong with our government?

If America is really a democracy, why can't we solve our social and economic problems?

If America is not a democracy, what kind of government is it - and who (or what) is in control?

The answers revolve around three central ideas: human "needs" are different from human "wants," "human needs" are different from "corporate needs," and corporations are different entities from those humans who own or operate them.

Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine, James Madison and Abraham Lincoln all warned against the excessive accumulation of capital. Franklin declared that "no man ought to own more property than needed for his livelihood, “while Madison decried "the unequal and various distribution of property “as the major cause of social unrest.

Lincoln said that too much money in too few hands would destroy America: "The money power preys upon the nation in times of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. I see in the near future a crisis approaching that… causes me to tremble for the safety of my country.

The money power of the country will endeavor to… work… upon the people, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the republic destroyed."

More recently, the outcry against greed was taken up by Louis Brandeis, who, before he ascended to the U. S. Supreme Court, declared forcefully that: "We can either have democracy in this country or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both."

Justice Brandeis - one of the most famous justices of all time - clearly foresaw that too many rich people would change America from a democracy (one-citizen-one-vote), into a plutocracy (one-dollar-one-vote).

Today, America's "rich people problem" has reached epidemic proportions, and while the growing numbers of homeless citizens are painfully apparent, the growing number of rich people has been less visible.

Let’s look at the rich in America!!!

In 1975, there were 4,585 millionaires in America; by 1986, the number had grown to 31,859. Today, we have 271 of the world’s 563 known billionaires; the number of millionaires in America reached record highs in 2004, hitting 7.5 million, according to a new survey. Along with six thousand and eight hundred groups of a thousand millionaires per group! This doesn't even include those who are merely worth a million, just those who are earning a million or more per year. Another 50,000 high earners flicker above/below million-dollar mark.

New York Times columnist Anthony Lewis has noted that "the gap between rich and poor in America is far and away the widest in the developed world."

We see the homeless every day, but we seldom see the rich because they leave their dirty work to their surrogates: the big corporations!

Richard Grossman and Frank T. Adams, in the book “Taking Care of Business: Citizenship and the Charter of Incorporation”, describe how citizens controlled corporations before the Civil War of 1861.

Up to that time, corporations were chartered for a specific limited purpose (for example, building a toll road or canal) and for a specific, limited period of time (usually 20 or 30 years). Each corporation was chartered to achieve a specific social goal that a legislature decided was in the public interest.

Isn’t it funny how things change?

On the brink of economic disaster, politicians and elitists keep the profits generated from their destructive money-making activities, while all of society is forced to pay the costs. It's as though only the richest 1% of the people have credit cards but the bill must be divided and paid by the rest of us.

In State of the World 1993, Brown points out that our economic way of thinking is killing us: "Industrial firms are allowed to internalize profits while externalizing costs, passing on to society such expenses as those for health care associated with polluted air or those from global warming.

"An expanding economy based on such an incomplete accounting system would be expected to slowly undermine itself, eventually collapsing as support systems are destroyed.

And that is just what is happening right NOW!!!

The environmentally destructive activities of recent decades are now showing in reduced productivity of croplands, forests, grasslands, and fisheries; in the mounting cleanup costs of toxic waste sites; in rising health care costs for cancer, birth defects, allergies, emphysema, asthma, and other respiratory diseases; and the spread of hunger in Africa and other poorer countries.

"The bottom line is that the world is entering a new era, one in which future economic progress depends on reversing environmental degradation. This in turn is contingent on new economic and population policies."

World Bank economist Herman Daly and theologian John Cobb warn us: "We human beings are being led into a dead end - all too literally. We are living by an ideology of death and accordingly we are destroying our own humanity and killing the planet. Even the one great success of the program that has governed us, the attainment of material affluence, is now giving way to poverty.

The United States is just now gaining a foretaste of the suffering that global economic policies, so enthusiastically embraced, have inflicted on hundreds of millions of others.

If we continue on our present paths, future generations, if there are to be any, are condemned to misery.

"Victor Furkiss, a prominent futurist and Professor of Government at Georgetown University, describes our appalling situation:

"Present-day society is locked into four positive feedback loops which need to be broken: economic growth which feeds on itself, population growth which feeds on itself, technological change which feeds on itself, and a pattern of income inequality which seems to be self sustaining and which tends to spur growth in the other three areas. Ecological humanism must create an economy in which economic and population growth is halted, technology is controlled, and gross inequalities of income are done away with."

Our colossal stupidity is condemning our children to living a horrible nightmare - one that they will not awaken from.

Our current lifestyle cannot be sustained. Thus, we can see that today's big question is not whether children will achieve a higher standard of living than their parents (they won't).

Today's big question is whether or not they will live long enough to retire.

Isn’t it interesting that on the threshold of a “change” in the American political and socioeconomic system that we are seeing almost momentous and historic scales of monetary turbulence and readjustments in a market that is moving towards greater stringency and centralization on the part of governments and those who control the wheels of financial power?

Alan Muhammad sites that:

As with today’s government, there is not a sane person alive that believes that what is articulated in public statements reflect its actual policy. It is understood that these statements are crafted in the most thoroughly righteous language in order to obscure their real (and usually economic) motivations. Were one to examine the underlying economic motives to any government action or policy, rather than simply accepting their public proclamations, it would represent the beginning of clarity and wisdom.”

John McCain wants to blast Wall Street for its greed – but he can’t remember how many houses he has…


Barack is teeter-tottering on the precipice of a conundrum between wanting to be the greatest President in American history and taking on a job that few “angels would dare to trod”, if any at all.

In the Middle Ages, the naked pursuit of wealth was named "avarice" and considered a sin. But avarice was re-labeled self-interest and became a virtue when Adam Smith published The Wealth of Nations in 1776 - the same year that Thomas Jefferson wrote our Declaration of Independence.

Whereas Jefferson failed to mention selfishness as one of America's founding ideas, Smith argued that selfishness was fundamental for prosperity and must not be constrained by explicit moral considerations (Smith had read his Machiavelli).

For Smith to be right, Jefferson must have completely forgotten a very important idea. But Jefferson didn't omit selfishness from our founding ideas by accident; in fact, he was strongly opposed to selfishness:

"Self-love, therefore, is no part of morality. Indeed it is exactly its counterpart. It is the sole antagonist of virtue, leading us constantly by our propensities to self-gratification in violation of our moral duties to others.

Accordingly, it is against this enemy that are erected the batteries of moralists and religionists, as the only obstacle to the practice of morality. Take from man his selfish propensities, and he can have nothing to seduce him from the practice of virtue."

Unfortunately, Thomas Jefferson's passionate appeal for moral restraint fell on selfish ears.

200 years later, we see the fruits of our so-called morality or lack thereof…

It is time for us to truly wise up!!!

50% of US Mortgages Is Now In The Hands Of Government

Many Americans will remember the SAVINGS & LOANS debacle of the 1970's. Some of us agree that it was the largest HEIST* in world banking history. Think about this for a moment folks. We are fighting (2) wars to the tune of billions per month. Question? Who profits from wars? If you answered "BANKS "... then you are correct. But there's one qualifier. Companies like Raytheon*** and Bombardier*** are the military munitions companies who earn billions for the bank’s coffer which is then in turn reinvested into the war effort. Look at back at recent history and you will realize at after every major conflict will come a boom in the world economy.

Now back to the context of our discussion. We are witnessing the collapse of major financial houses, i.e. Bear Stearns, Fannie/Freddy Mae/Mac, Lehman Brothers and we expect some other major players shortly. So far the US government bailout is the Mother of all bailouts. The taxpayer cost for just two major mortgage companies — up to $200 billion — is more than the total cost of bailing out thousands of S&Ls in the 1970s.

In short, the federal government is buying a pig in a poke — a bottomless pit that will suck up many times more capital than they're revealing. Let's look at the numbers:

Mortgages owned or guaranteed by Fannie and Freddie: $5.3 trillion.

Treasury securities outstanding as of March 31, according to the Fed's Flow of Funds (report page 87, pdf page 95): Also $5.3 trillion.

Here's the dilemma - what if foreign investors and all those who hold government bonds and securities decide to dump them? To add insult to injury according to Dr. Martin D. Weiss it is actually worse than that, for if foreign investors, who are most likely to dump their holdings if they lose confidence in the United States, hold an estimated 20% of the Fannie- and Freddie-backed mortgages outstanding - but also these said foreign investors who own 52.7% of the Treasury securities outstanding (excluding those held by the Fed) decide to make a clean break because of the bankrupt nature of these institutions - could you imagine the fallout?

So based on the above stats, Treasury securities are actually more vulnerable to foreign selling than Fannie and Freddie bonds. An ominous scenario for most American families - notwithstanding the global impact this would cause as a ripple effect.

The safety of every stock, mutual fund and ETF you own now hangs in the balance ... This great credit crisis is rapidly spreading beyond banks ... beyond brokers ... beyond the entire financial sector ... to many of the most widely held non-financial stocks in America and internationally!!! The crisis could easily move from plague to pandemic according to Dr. Weiss.

The U.S government saw this coming and did nothing to avert it. The question is - can we trust our government with our financial affairs or are we going to look back a decade from now to realize we didn't learn anything from the S&L fiasco of the 70's and we simply sat and watch the government and the captains of industry cock-up our investments and life savings in another Herculean heist of Titanic proportions?

The choice is ours!!! May God help us…


The Temple On The Hill:–

Masons – Friends Or Foes?

A Christian’s View Regarding Freemasonry

The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek, therefore, not to find out Who You Are, seek to determine Who You Want to Become."
-- Ancient Script

I believe many Freemasons are deceived. This path for many is a way into secret societies where initiation, rites and ceremonies brings with it social prestige and standing amongst your peers and contemporaries.

However, the question must be asked, what is Freemasonry? What are their beliefs? Are those beliefs compatible with our Christian ethos and values? And can we continue to turn a blind eye to what could be a fatal flaw of judgment?

In the Bible, the Word of God tells us in 2 John 1:7 that “many deceivers (false prophets) are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an Antichrist. (KJV)

In the book 'The Illustrious Manly P. Hall' probably 'Masonry's Greatest Philosopher', says that "the world is a far better place because of Manly Palmer Hall, and we are better persons for having known him and his work".

The said Manly P. Hall states that, "Freemasonry is a fraternity within a fraternity…an outer organization concealing an inner brotherhood of the elect” ...

What do these statements mean in context?

Let us turn to the definitive Masonic author, writing in the book, Morals and Dogma, which is the training manual for each of the 33 degrees of Freemasonry. This is the man to who much praise by subsequent Masonic authors has given such praise and adulation. His name is Albert Pike. He is the man whose large statute graces the Masonic Temple in Washington, D.C.; Pike is the man lauded by Kessinger Occult & Freemason Publisher as saying, "if you want to understand Freemasonry, you must understand Albert Pike".

Many well-meaning men are members of this visible freemasonry society with no knowledge whatsoever of the inner workings of the invisible society. In fact, Albert Pike had some things to say about the brethren in the visible society. This is what he says: "Masonry, like all the Religions, all the Mysteries, Hermeticism, and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be mislead; to conceal the Truth, which it calls light, and draw them away from it." [Morals and Dogma, p. 104-5, 3rd Degree]

Did you hear these key words from Albert Pike? Masonry is a religion after all, after the order of the Satanic Mysteries, the equally Satanic Hermetic Philosophy, and Alchemy! Masonry conceals its secrets from the brethren in the outer visible society, no matter their rank; only the Elect in the inner invisible society ever know the truth. The poor brethren in the visible society are spoon-fed "false explanations and misinterpretations" of its symbols"; and for what reason? So that those poor guys in the visible society "deserve only to be mislead".

Pike then completes his instructions to intentionally mislead those members of the visible society, by saying: "So Masonry jealously conceals its secrets and intentionally leads conceited interpreters astray." [Ibid. p. 105]

If a man were known to revere Jesus Christ in the beginning of his membership within Masonry, he would be immediately shunted into the visible society, and would never, ever learn the truth. You would never be considered an Adept, or a Sage, or one of the Elect, for those terms are reserved for the members of the invisible society. You would be one of those who were deliberately lied to about the doctrines of Masonry, and given deliberate misinterpretations of its symbols, so that you would merely THINK you knew the Truth.

Members of the visible society are referred to as the 'masses', and you do comprise 95% of all Masons. Listen to what Pike says about telling the truth of the organization to the 'masses': "A Spirit", he said, "that loves wisdom and contemplates the Truth close at hand, is forced to disguise it, to induce the multitudes [that is you] to accept it ... Fictions are necessary to the people, and the Truth becomes deadly to those who are not strong enough to contemplate it in all its brilliance." [Morals and Dogma, p. 103, 3rd Degree; Emphasis added]

If a person is not capable of accepting the Truth that inner-core, invisible Freemasonry really worships and serves Satan, and then such Truth would become "deadly" to you. Therefore, "fictions are necessary" so visible Masons would not be so devastated that they would leave Freemasonry and expose its inner secrets.

A book written ten years ago also speaks of these two organizations. David Ovason, a noted astrologer, has written a book published in 1999, entitled, “The Secret Architecture of our Nation's Capital: The Masons and the Building of Washington, D.C”, and New Age author, Bill Cooper book “Behold A Pale Horse”.

So let us hear what Albert Pike says about Freemasonry and also what he says about Christianity. Albert Pike states that "the Apocalypse is, to those who receive the 19th Degree, the Apotheosis of that Sublime Faith which aspires to God alone, and despises all the pomps and works of Lucifer."

In other words, “that mean old dirty God, the equal but opposite of Satan, despises all the pomps and works of Lucifer”. On page 567 of Morals and Dogma, Pike states that, while Satan created this world, the soul of man emanated from God, thus setting up a very long conflict between God and Satan.

Then, Pike launches into a defiant and glorious defense of Lucifer, by saying: "Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light and with its splendors intolerable, blinds feeble, sensual or selfish souls? Doubt it not! For traditions are full of Divine Revelations and Inspirations: and Inspiration is not of one Age or of one Creed. Plato and Philo also, were inspired." [Morals and Dogma, p. 321; Lucifer similarly glorified on page 567]

Right here, Masonry is proven to be NON-Christian, as Jesus said so emphatically: “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me." [John 14:6] You cannot believe other religions are as valid as Christianity based on this statement of fact and still think you are a Christian; on the other hand, you can certainly "think" you are a Christian, but whether you get into Heaven depends upon whether the Lord Jesus Christ recognizes you as His own. Either way, Jesus’ words are either the Ultimate Truth or the ultimate lie – we must choose!

Now, let us see what Pike has to say about Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us to "test (or try) the spirits, to see if they are (of) from God". [1 John 4:1] The reason for this is that many FALSE prophets had come into the world!

"The Light could not unite with darkness. It but put on the appearance of a human body, and took the name of Christ in the Messiah, only to accommodate itself to the language of the Jews... He suffered in appearance only... the person of Jesus having disappeared..." (A diabolical lie being currently perpetrated by an Iranian Muslim filmmaker on the making of a film about the death of Jesus) [Morals and Dogma, p. 567; Emphasis added]

This quote from Pike directly, completely, and perfectly fulfills the Biblical definition of Antichrist, because Pike just separated the human body of Jesus from His Divine Nature.

Freemasonry also teaches the following about Jesus Christ:

(1) "Jesus received his wisdom from Gnosis" [p. 563, 26th Degree]. Gnosticism was one of the heresies Paul and the Apostles battled.

The Bible says that Jesus Christ is the Creator of all things, that by Him and His Wisdom, everything was created [John 1:1]. Once again, Freemasonry is discovered to be teaching pagan gobbledygook rather than Biblical Truth.

(2) Jesus is the same as other great spiritual lights in history, like Plato [p. 539, 26th Degree].

(3) Jesus is not unique at all, despite acknowledging that Jesus claimed to be unique (The Son of God). Masonry calls Jesus Christ a liar! Can Masons still in good conscience call themselves Christian?

"Who is such a liar as he who denies that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah? He is the antichrist, the antagonist of Christ, who habitually denies and refuses to acknowledge the Father and the Son. No one who habitually denies and disowns the Son even has the Father." [1 John 2:22-23, Amplified Bible]. Masonry makes such a big deal of worshiping God, but then turns right around to disown His Son, Jesus Christ. What colossal deception!

But is this all that Freemasonry teaches and believes about Jesus Christ? Let us examine the facts. Albert Pike states the following doctrine concerning Jesus Christ in Chapter 26, or the 26th Degree, "Prince of Mercy, or Scottish Trinitarian". On page 562-3, we see that the thought of a Supreme Being unknown to the Human race [God] produced the Universe which "produced the Spirit, the Mother of the Living, and Wisdom of God. Together with this Primitive Existence, Matter existed also ... eternal ..."

"Buthos and His Thought, uniting with Wisdom, made her fruitful by the Divine Light, and she produced a perfect and an imperfect being, Christos, and a Second and inferior Wisdom, Sophia-Achamoth, who falling into chaos remained entangled there, became enfeebled, and lost all knowledge of the Superior Wisdom that gave her birth”.

“Communicating movement to chaos, she produced Ialdaboath, the Demiourgos, Agent of Material Creation... Ialdaboath produced an angel that was his image, and this a second, and son on in succession to the sixth after the Demiourgos ... Ialdaboath, to become independent of his mother, and to pass for the Supreme Being, made the world, and man in his own image; and his mother caused the Spiritual principle to pass from him into man so made; and henceforward the contest between the Demiourgos and his mother, between light and darkness, good and evil, was concentrated in man."

"And the image of Ialdaboath, reflected upon matter, became the Serpent-Spirit, Satan, the Evil Intelligence. Eve, created by Ialdaboath, had by his Sons children that were angels like themselves. The Spiritual light was withdrawn from man by Sophia, and the world surrendered to the influence of evil; until the Spirit, urged by the entreaties of Wisdom, induced the Supreme Being to send Christos to redeem it. Compelled, despite himself, by his Mother, Ialdaboath caused the man Jesus to be born of a Virgin; and the Celestial Savior, uniting with his Sister, Wisdom, descended through the regions of the seven angels... and entered with his sister into the man Jesus at the baptism in Jordan."

"Ialdaboath, finding that Jesus was destroying his empire and abolishing his worship, caused the Jews to hate and crucify Him; before which happened, Christos and Wisdom had ascended to the celestial regions”.

“They restored Jesus to life and gave Him an ethereal body, in which He remained eighteen months on earth, and receiving from Wisdom the perfect knowledge [... Gnosis], communicated it to a small number of His apostles, and then arose to the intermediate region inhabited by Ialdaboath, where, unknown to him, He sits at his right hand, taking from him the Souls of Light purified by Christos. When nothing of the spiritual world shall remain subject to Ialdaboath, the redemption will be accomplished, and the end of the world, the completion of the return of Light into the Plenitude, will occur."

Let us recap this little lesson of Masonic Double-Speak, their reversal of meanings: Creator God -- Defined as Demons and as Prince of Darkness. Satan and the Serpent defined as "Angel of Light ", a term Christians ascribe to either God or Pre-Incarnate Jesus Christ.

If you will keep this fact in mind as you read the writings of Freemasonry, you will be a lot closer to the truth of what they really teach. Much of their writings seem to read like they are speaking of the God of the Bible, and Jesus Christ, but if you understand they have reversed the meanings of the key words and terms, you will understand whom it is they really serve and worship.

Make no mistake about it, and do not be deceived: when Freemasonry refers to God, they are really worshiping the serpent, and when they speak of goodness and light, they are speaking of the teachings of Lucifer, the Light-Bearer, whom they repeatedly refer to by that name. In fact, all Masons are charged with becoming "Light-Bearers", always moving toward the "Light". But, now, for the first time, hopefully, you will now understand that, with their reversal of meanings, Freemasons really worship Lucifer. Stay with us on this journey, for we will absolutely prove it as we go on.
