The amazing secret behind Freemasonry’s triumph
It is very easy to reduce what secret societies actually promote to basic principles everyone can understand. All that is needed is a visual aid and a little explanation. Below is that visual aid: a look at the Masonic Pyramid taken from Lady Queensborough’s work: Occult Theocracy. Notice that towards the top of the Pyramid, under the slanted Grand Orient entry, is Communism, the dreaded menace that America feared for years. The Communist “witch hunt” conducted by Sen. Joseph McCarthy may have resulted in the ruination of some individuals who were no threat to America. But in retrospect, McCarthy’s campaign should have been expanded to root out every possible Communist sympathizer in the halls of government as well as practicing Freemasons; perhaps then it could have been done. But by the time President Kennedy was elected, as he himself noted in a speech given in 1963, the enemy had already seized control.
As we course upwards from the bottom of the pyramid, we see that the foundation was laid upon materialism, the deification of man (secular humanism) and occultism. All these isms first began gaining stature in the 19th century as American capitalism burgeoned following the Civil War. Protestant and Catholic liberalism, condemned by Pope Pius IX in his Syllabus of Errors, also mushroomed in the mid to late 1800s, as well as British Israelism (also known as “Identity” and reflected in the “Manifest Destiny” philosophy behind Western expansion in the U.S.). Benjamin Disraeli taught what later became this Aryan Nations gospel in his official capacity as England’s prime minister. The Blue Lodge is comprised of those who have not yet given up Christian beliefs in favor of Masonic dogma. Masons without the apron or pro-masons are defined on other pyramid depictions as those belonging to the Elks, Rotary, YMCA and other fraternal organizations. The York Rite reputedly still holds outwardly, at least, to Christian beliefs but the Scottish Rite is notoriously pagan, anti-Christian and even Satanic, according author, Dr. Ray Jurjevich in his “Christian Revolt, Long Overdue.”
Moving up, we can see that Masonry’s most secret activities occur among those who reach the highest levels — Grand Orient, B’nai Brith, the 300 and the 33rd and 13th councils. The capstone of the pyramid, the all-seeing eye, is the “architect of the Universe…nature’s god.” Directly below it is the Antichrist, aided by those who help implement his system. These individuals, directly inspired by Satan, oversee and help these secret groups interface with each other in all their earthly endeavors. As Pope Leo XIII taught in Humanum Genus: “The evildoers all seem allied in a tremendous effort inspired by and with the help of a society powerfully organized and widely spread all over the world…the Society of Freemasons…” And that was over 125 years ago. Over 75 years ago Pope Pius XI expressed the same sentiment in “Divini Redemptoris,” his definitive work on atheistic Communism: “Various occult forces for a long time have been working for the overthrow of the Christian social order…Under various names which do not suggest Communism, they establish organizations and periodicals with the sole purpose of carrying their ideas into quarters otherwise inaccessible. They try perfidiously to worm their way even into professedly Catholic and religious organizations.”
Fears that Socialism and Communism are being promoted by the Obama administration have been voiced since his election and the appointment of a host of progressive czars and aides. But how many people who know what Communism is, at least in a vague sort of way, have any idea that it is a product of the secret societies, specifically of Freemasonry? And how many who know this really understand that, divorced from Freemasonry and presented as a political system in opposition to our own, Communism becomes simply an unrelated and remote danger confined to countries which, according to the liberal press, no longer actually practice it? As long as Americans own their own homes, can smoke dope when they feel like it and can burn flags, they believe we are relatively free to do what we choose to do. The gradual nature of Communism is not seen or understood. Programs such as sustainability that once implemented, make huge inroads into private property rights and community autonomy are not viewed as the prelude to Communism they truly are. The fact that so many American citizens are unable to defend their rights in court because they cannot afford an attorney to litigate important civil matters is not seen as an erosion of civil liberties. And more government with its attendant bureaucracy is not viewed as a threat to exercising constitutional rights, even though government agencies often replace citizen-run commissions and advisory groups, unbeknownst to the general public.
Since the realization that America has been hijacked by the far left and progressives (read Socialists/Communists) first became a newsflash, suddenly the idea that there was a “conspiracy” at work to divert this country from its traditional path made far more sense than the average American would like to admit. Even news outlets began reporting that after all, these groups involved in what many referred to as a conspiracy made no attempt to deny it and certainly could be researched and found to be legitimate. Their existence was no secret; their activities were acknowledged although their agendas remained hidden. These entities “crept in” to American government and politics over a long period of time until suddenly they were everywhere. Those choosing to understand this had no difficulty in believing it. But what they don’t know is that the primary chosen target of this inimical religion was not the halls of government first, but the Pope and the Vatican. This was publicized long before the event and is easily verified. The destruction of the Catholic Church was well underway once the last of the Catholic monarchies toppled and these religionists next set their sites on more modern governments.
Masonry its own religion
Who are these religionists of whom we speak? Readers may be surprised to hear Freemasonry called a religion, but as one priest, Rev. Peter Rosen wrote in 1902: “The nature of secret societies as false religions is not yet understood…[these societies keep] secrets, having rituals demanding an oath of allegiance and secrecy, prescribing ritual of a religious character, such as the use of the Bible, either by extracts therefrom, or by its being placed on an altar within the lodge-room, the use of prayers, of hymns, of religious signs and symbols, special funeral services, etc.,” (The Catholic Church and Secret Societies). Rev. E. Cahill, S. J., in his “Freemasonry and the Anti-Christian Movement,” quotes directly from one of Freemasonry’s own official magazines, “The New Age,” to demonstrate the sect’s true teaching concerning its religious nature: “Masonry is more than a religion: Masonry is religion. Jew, Gentile, Buddhist, Mohammedan, Theosophist, Christian Scientist, and all other -ists and -isms or religions are embraced in and spring from Masonry. Masonry is the Mother Church existing before there were popes and prelates, Romans or Protestants…Let us have but one Church and that Church the Universe,” (Feb., 1918). And there you have the New World Order anti-Church of all faiths – the reinvention of Roman polytheism.
As its own overarching religion, Freemasonry predictably employs rites specific to its purpose and their own version of “sacraments.” Rev. Rosen describes the initiation ceremony of Masonic baptism, practiced by lodges worldwide including American lodges, where child initiates, after invoking the assistance of God are signed with the delta (not the Cross) and dedicated “to the service of virtue and truth.” The delta is an ancient Egyptian symbol of fire, signified by the triangle or pyramid and also synonymous with “the Unspeakable Name of God,” (Dictionary of Freemasonry). Rev. Cahill quotes another Masonic publication, “The American Freemason,” as follows: “In Freemasonry, God is not a dogma but a symbol; for its spirit is expressed mainly in the symbolism of sign, form and words, with the most far-reaching mental liberty…The work of Freemasonry is concerned with the here, not the hereafter,” (January 1924). Freemasons, then, are not bound to recognize God as a matter of dogma, but only as a symbol used by the sect. So clearly this baptism ceremony does not induct members into the Christian community but into a society of ancient pagan and other religions, among which Christianity is only considered one of many. So much for separation of Church and State.
Catholic and Protestant authors alike have warned their members of Masonry’s deceits for centuries. They have traced the founding of America to the first Masonic lodges established in this country in her infancy. Some of these authors point to Mason Madison Clinton Peters’ work, “Masons as Makers of America,” as proof of this fact. In this work Peters states: “That the leaders in this great work of launching this new nation were the foremost men in the Masonic Fraternity is an established fact — from the laying of the plans for the Revolution in Green Dragon Inn, Boston, by Samuel Adams, Josiah Quincy, Joseph Warren, James Otis and Paul Revere, all through the developments of the principles of Free Masonry, which resulted in the Declaration of Independence and the formation of the Constitution of the United States…all…is proof conclusive that if it had not been for the Masons, this Republic might never have been born.” And George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin were Masons as well. It is thought that the Masonic Founding Fathers generally were men of character; God-fearing men who intended to found a God-fearing nation. But given their affiliations, the fact cannot be ignored that when they were speaking of “God” in their documents, it could just as easily have been the symbolic Masonic idea of God, not the God of Christianity.
It is stated in the Declaration of Independence: that the people must enjoy “…the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them.” This has been pointed to by those championing the documents of freedom recently as proof that this country was founded on the God of Christianity. But no solid proof of this fact, other than their statements from other documents that they all believed in God in a general sort of way, has been offered to bolster this claim. To prove they indeed meant the God of Christianity, it must first be understood what the majority of the Founders, those belonging to Freemasonry, intended by the term “Nature’s God.” Quoting from a work he calls “The Lyceum,” Rev. Cahill relates that lower degree Masons learn only the symbols and sacred words; they are given only the external signs of the craft. It is not until they reach the 33rd degree that the genuine “mysteries” are finally revealed to them. It is then that they learn about the Nature God, the Great All. This god “is a bisexual being, a hermaphrodite, and creation is the beginning of the process of generation…The initiation rite of the second degree represents the normal condition of the Nature God, always in labor, always generating. It imports that God is a hermaphrodite, that his name has always signified the God of generation …Jehovah …signifies He-She, that is, the two sexes in one. The dual principle, male and female, is represented by the square and compass: by the compass, symbol of Osiris, the male; and by the square, symbol of the earth, Isis the female.” Any more questions about why states are rushing to legalize homosexual unions?
In a speech to Congress in the 1950s, Sen. Joseph McCarthy reportedly referred to a little-known conversation held between Gen. Cornwallis and George Washington. During this conversation, Cornwallis candidly confided that following the American Revolution, “a holy war will now begin on America, and when it is ended America will supposedly be the citadel of freedom, but her millions will unknowingly be loyal subjects of the Crown…All religions will be permeated with Judaism [Kabbalism] and will be under the invisible, all-seeing eye of the Grand Architect of Freemasonry,” (quoted by McCarthy from Jonathan Williams’ “Legions of Satan,” 1781). While George Washington himself, sadly, was a Mason, certain historical facts seem to support the belief that he converted to Catholicism on his deathbed. This conversion he undoubtedly owed to the Blessed Virgin, for historians report that a splendid painting of her hung in his dining room. Secret Jesuit records kept in Maryland relate that a Jesuit priest was sent to George Washington before he died, at his request, and that he died a Catholic. (Reported in From the Housetops, “Footprints of the Church in America,” Fall, 1976, St. Benedict’s Center, Still River Massacchusetts. These facts remain unverified from other sources, and are not to be construed in any way as an endorsement of the followers of Fr. Leonard Feeney, their beliefs or their practices.) Although at one time a Mason, and this after the Church’s first condemnations of Masonry, his change of heart appears to be reflected in his 1796 Farewell Address.
“All combinations and associations, under whatever plausible character, with the real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular deliberations and actions of the constituted authorities are destructive of this fundamental principle, and [are] of fatal tendency.” He then describes how partisan political factions, often representing a minority, destroy the true idea of democracy and frustrate its operation. “However combinations and associations of the above description may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people, and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.” (Ibid, Rev. Rosen).
While it may be true that not all the Founding Fathers had advanced high enough in the sect to know the true meaning of the term “nature’s God,” the fact that it appears at all in the documents on which this country was founded should alarm Christians, to say the least. Surely some of them knew, and to pretend that this knowledge doesn’t matter or didn’t exist is to deny the possibility that Americans have been fooled for nearly 250 years. The meaning behind the Nature God (Baal), given the prevalence of Masonic influence in this country, would explain the decades-long increase in promiscuity, homosexuality and same-sex marriage, also sexual assault — preceded by the blatant sexual themes in advertising, music and other mediums. And it even hints at more disturbing connotations. But these of course would be pooh-poohed today, although certainly the Catholic Church and some Protestant denominations as well did not dismiss them even 60 years ago. As much as mainstream Christians today would like to believe that the God of the Founding Fathers was the God of their understanding, Masonic literature itself does not support this. After all, Thomas Jefferson went on to write his Jefferson Bible, holding Christ as a great prophet, but not divine. Benjamin Franklin was a member of the notorious Hellfire Club, best known for its sexual depravity. In short, the most superficial study of the Founding Fathers’ true affiliations will verify their involvement in Freemasonry. Americans deserve the truth, if they are courageous enough to seek it and act upon it.
And it is not difficult to discover. During the Cold War of the 1950s, all Americans knew that Communism was the enemy; they just didn’t realize that it was only one of the higher grades of Freemasonry, the real menace threatening America. Lady Queensborough’s Masonic pyramid above lists Communism at precisely the time in that author’s existence that Marx and Lenin were promoting these systems. Fabian Socialism already had made its entry on Great Britain’s political stage. Both Marx and Lenin were Freemasons, Rev. Cahill notes, and most of those undertaking the Bolshevik Revolution were brother Masons as well. Had the world listened to the popes, the evil could have been averted. But Freemasonry already had successfully vilified and subverted Catholicism; whatever it could not destroy it perverted and disfigured. The question arises: how can those exposing the dangers of these systems today divest them of the Masonic element and hope to sufficiently alert the American people to the true nature of all the dangers they now are facing? The answer is that without understanding the WHOLE truth they cannot, and by presenting only that truth Masons wish them to know, they handily omit a segment of history that would unquestionably unravel the “mystery” of Freemasonry and in the process expose the greatest hoax ever perpetrated in history.
The segment they conveniently omit is the ruthless persecution and destruction, as prophesied in Holy Scripture and by Her popes, of the Catholic Church as She existed up to the death of Pope Pius XII. And by that omission they become complicit in the denial of the First Amendment rights of those Catholics, who know and understand what has really happened to their Church and why it happened. These Catholics have lived virtually unknown and forgotten, deprived of their churches and clergy, keeping their faith quietly in their homes and in small religious communities, by existing in a sort of virtual catacombs. They are scorned as religious extremists, radicals, heretics, fanatics and lunatics and are ridiculed and shunned by other ”Catholics.” They have fallen victim to venomous snakes living in their own camp, suffering even greater persecutions from those pretending to be of their own house than from those in the world at large. They occasionally reach out to individuals they think might help publicize their plight, only to retreat when they realize no one really cares that the Church they love — whose pre-1959 laws and teachings they continue to uphold — no longer exists. This untouched “conspiracy theory” is the one sticky wicket secret societies will avoid at all costs, because it would completely ruin their well-laid plans. But those of other “Christian” religions ignore it at their own risk. For one day it will also knock at their door, and there will be none to defend them.
We see commercials of persecuted Russian and Polish Jews and Christians in the Holy Land on those nice, conservative TV channels. We are offered a bland and narrow broadcast media-assisted explanation of what should be done to combat the advance f the progressives. Although a critical eye should be cast on everything at this late stage of the game, once again, the blinders are on. Because all other efforts to fight the destruction of what few values remain have seemingly failed, even those who should know better are drinking from what appears to them to be the last available trough. They respond to the basic spiritual values that are tendered to them — virtues such as faith, hope and charity — without realizing that others understand these virtues from a completely different point of view. During a series of popular broadcasts on one such show, George Washington, garbed in his Masonic apron, is shown standing under the “G” (for Gnosis) arch, supported by two of several pillars. These are described as the pillars of Solomon’s temple and signify the reconstruction of that temple according to Masonic gnosis. On the left front pillar we find written, “Faith, hope and charity” and on the right, Wisdom, Strength and Beauty. Given the Gnostic setting of this scene, do faithful Christians really believe that these cardinal virtues, in this pagan context, could really be interpreted in a Christian way? Or aligned with three men who just happened to be — Freemasons?
Christian oriented “tea-partiers” have been channeled by their mentors into seeking an ecumenical union of all faiths to fill the void left by the Church, but ecumenism will not work for what remains of Christianity today any better than it worked for Catholics who endured Vatican 2 in the 1960s. The Blue Lodge and pro-Mason levels on Lady Queens-borough’s pyramid are nothing more than the preparatory desensitization to Christian values of any kind necessary to ”boil the frog” in gradualist fashion, resulting in that fatal indifference, condemned by the Catholic Church, that one religions is just as good as another. Ecumenism is nothing more than an implicit admission that all can join together under a common religious banner to effectively combat the ravages of Masonry when nothing could be further from the truth. All that the popular promoters of such thinking are doing today, whether deliberately or as well-rewarded dupes, is returning those who have “seen the light” to the columns supporting the porch and entry to the Masonic temple (faith hope and love; wisdom, beauty and strength). Notice that these conspiracy buffs and promoters never breathe a word about Freemasonry, and there is a reason for this. For they intend to initiate a new set of listeners into Masonry’s teachings and begin the ouroboros cycle of the vicious circle all over again.
Is this an attack on a popular presentation of the solution to the political dilemma in which we find ourselves? No. It is a different kind of “wake-up” call intended to alert an uninformed generation of the spiritual — not just political — dangers their grandparents were vaguely aware of, but which now have been repackaged for public consumption. These dangers have been successfully minimized over the past several decades by attaching ridicule to whatever is not in line with the status quo. This is the same ridicule aimed at those who dare entertain “conspiracy theories” and hold orthodox religious beliefs many abandoned long ago. As noted earlier, some now are admitting that a good part of what once passed for conspiracy theories have actually been proven to be the truth. Prior to this admission, these theories were ridiculed then violently opposed — opposed, that is, until it was no longer possible to deny that what was being stated had come to pass. This follows the process noted by German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer: “All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” What once was the teaching of the Catholic Church has been violently opposed for centuries. If Schopenhauer’s analysis is correct, stage three cannot be long in coming.
Persecution of Christians will increase
But first the end of the second phase above — violent opposition — must play out in the form of persecution of Christians in general and Fundamentalists of any kind in particular. The destruction of the Catholic Church in the 1960s is about to visit America and most of the civilized world. The true Popes of the Catholic Church warned of their plans for centuries and their own documents are the best proof of the existence of Masonic hatred for the Church and their plans to destroy it. But they are no longer here to protect us. While many Internet sites speak of the hatred of Catholic conservatives for Freemasonry, they entirely ignore the wealth of documented hatred of Freemasonry in regards to Catholicism as it once existed. They consistently link hatred of Freemasonry to hatred of the Jews, but the two do not go hand in hand, and right-thinking Catholics understand that Freemasonry and Judaism are not synonymous. Jews do belong to Masonic lodges; B’nai Brith is a high level lodge that is exclusively Jewish, according to Lady Queensborough. But many Protestants, liberal Catholics, Muslims and members of other religions also are high-ranking Freemasons. As Masonry itself brags, their work is truly ecumenical and embraces all religions.
For those who question Masonic persecution of Catholics, the following may be of interest. We read in the work “Christianity and American Freemasonry” written by William J. Whalen in 1958 that “The New Age” publication “is waging a full-scale war on Catholicism, parochial and private schools and any venture of the Christian Church into the area of public morals.” He gives several examples of this persecution in his book, including a quote from a February 1957 article that states: “One of the foulest and most pernicious of the pressure groups that infests the world of international politics today is the Roman Church hierarchy and its several instrumentalities.” In the March issue of this same year another article styles the Church as “a gigantic force for evil in world politics for 15 centuries.” In this same issue a second article accuses the clergy of using “ ‘sophistry, distortion, innuendo, and outright falsehood’ to advance their aims.” And this, he notes, from a publication that “ridicules the idea that Masonry wishes to destroy the Catholic Church,” and whose editor claims the magazine “will not tolerate ‘any criticism of any religious faith or church’ on the back cover of every issue…” The August issue urges non-Catholics to support a shelter for the rehabilitation of renegade priests “ ‘who have been freed ‘from the slavery the Roman Church demands.’”
Older examples of this same invective against Catholics can be found in the Masonic Grand Master Albert Pike’s handbook, “Morals and Dogma,” widely circulated among American members of the Lodge. There Pike writes: “Now from the tomb in which after his murders he rotted, Clement the Fifth howls against the successors of his victims, in the Allocutions of Pio Nono [Pope Pius IX] against the Freemasons. The ghosts of the dead Templars haunt the Vatican and disturb the slumbers of the paralyzed Papacy, which, dreading the dead, shrieks out its excommunications and impotent anathemas against the living.” Other examples are found in the document known as the Alta Vendita, released in the mid-1800s. From one section of this work we read: “You wish to cause the last vestige of tyranny and of oppression to disappear? Lay your nets…in the depths of sacristies, seminaries and convents…Bring yourselves as friends around the Apostolic Chair. You will have fished up a revolution in Tiara and Cope, marching with Cross and banner, a Revolution…which [will] put the four quarters of the earth on fire.” And in another place: “Catholicism has no more fear of a well-sharpened stiletto than monarchies have, but these two bases of social order can fall by corruption. Let us then never cease to corrupt,” (Msgr. George Dillon’s “Grand Orient Freemasonry Unmasked”). It should be sufficiently clear that Freemasonry set its sights on the Church and State long ago, and its members found their mark.
Time to call their bluff
It is time that those claiming to stand for the lovers of truth and freedom put their money where their mouth is concerning this sect. Either those who have been trampled underfoot by them are free to speak, without being labeled fanatics or lunatics — as many conservatives have been labeled — or they are not. If patriots in the front lines truly believe in freedom of religion and freedom of speech, they will grant it even to a religious minority. And they will not object, or castigate Catholics for holding to the unchangeable beliefs of their faith and refusing to join in any ecumenical effort to save America from the dangers of Socialism and Communism. If these Catholics didn’t buy ecumenism when it was introduced in their churches in the 1960s, why would they believe it could solve the problems facing their country today? Ecumenism is definitely not the answer; it is the solution desired by Freemasonry, which teaches that its craft is comprised of all religions and preaches “liberty, equality and fraternity.” There would be no need to even rally Americans to defense of their country in the first place if anyone had been listening to the Church when She forewarned the world about Socialism and Communism over 200 years ago. The Church is definitely a divinely established organization, but She is run by human beings. Certainly in the past not all those in her ranks have behaved according to Catholic teaching and belief, and often the popes have condemned them while civil governments gave them free reign. Still, in contrast to the licentiousness and lawlessness of today, in ages past when the popes held sway, they at least could condemn such practices and demand redress even if they could not bring a halt to these evils altogether. Today only weak and infrequent bleatings emanate from Rome and the “hierarchy” seems non-committal concerning many grievous violations of the moral law.
The bottom line here? Unless those looking at this situation from a truly objective standpoint accept the fact that Freemasons first destroyed the Catholic Church, then subverted governments on a global scale for many decades, they will never be able to appreciate the fact that unless “he who withholdeth,” spoken of by St. Paul, had first been taken out of the way (the papacy), then none of this could have happened. If the Masons didn’t succeed in destroying the Church first, then where are all the vocal cardinals and bishops condemning the open promotion of Socialism and Communism and the enshrinement of Masonic ideals as the status quo? Why was Communism and Socialism never condemned at Vatican II? Why was ecumenism, the religion of Freemasonry, promoted at Vatican II? What in heavens name was Rome thinking in collaborating with ACORN and promoting Liberation Theology? Why was Saul Alinsky a frequent and welcome visitor of Paul VI? Where were the last four “popes” all these years during this moral and spiritual onslaught? Why have these men actively compromised with the Communists, the Masons and the Jews all this time? Because the apex of the pyramid is located in Rome, that’s why.
The popes have not always been Antichrist, as the Protestants maintain, and the Jesuits of old were not the equivalent of Nazi Storm Troopers, either. However the Jesuits, as papal vanguards, were subverted early on, beginning with the Modernist heresy, and the death of Pope Pius XII marked the beginning of that New Order (Novus Ordo) church that has spiritually directed Freemasonry ever since. Several works have been written that indicate John 23 was a high-ranking Rose-Croix and the head of the Priory of Sion, an organization that actually existed as an outgrowth of the Knights Templar, despite all claims to the contrary. So certainly today Protestants are correct if they believe that Antichrist rules from Rome, and as Antichrists and antipopes, none of these men could have ever validly sat in Peter’s Chair. This is the operation of error, to believe lies; the signs and lying wonders of Antichrist. He sits in their midst a queen, when he is a widow. He sits on the throne of God — in the Apostolic See — showing himself as if he were God (Christ’s true vicar). It is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated, and until it is unmasked, the political aspect of this same system will never be able to be properly addressed.
Fomenting the final cataclysm
After having worked long and hard to conspire with the Roman church in order to clearly portray her as complicit in all their dealings, the political arm of Freemasonry will destroy even what remains of her external existence, having already gutted Her from within. Some believe the “pope” will move to Jerusalem once Rome is destroyed, there to reign jointly with the Jewish Messiah. Others believe that all vestiges of Rome will be obliterated and the new reign of Satanism intended all along by Freemasonry will then be ushered in. Maser Mason Albert Pike wrote over 150 years ago concerning the approaching world wars: “The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the ‘agentur’ of the ‘Illuminati;’ between the political Zionists and the leaders of the Islamic world. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam…and the…State of Israel mutually destroy each other. We shall unleash the nihilists and the atheists and we shall provoke a great social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to all nations the effect of absolute atheism. Then everywhere the people will…exterminate these destroyers of civilization and the multitudes disillusioned with Christianity, whose spirits will be from that moment without direction and leadership and anxious for an ideal,…will receive the true light through the manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, finally out into public view. A manifestation which will result from a general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and Atheism; both conquered, and exterminated at the same time,” (“Secrets of Freemasons,” Michael Bradley).
The Jews and Muslims, according to Masonic plan, will mutually destroy each other. The nihilists and atheists already are manufacturing strife and civil unrest. But what final blow will be dealt the church of Rome, outside its actual physical destruction? The now deceased British Israel prophet Herbert Armstrong gave us the following idea of what we might expect: “The ancient Babylonians migrated west and settled in Italy. Their religion was the Assyrian-Babylonian mystery religion. It is going to come as a breathtaking, awesome, shocking surprise when the world learns that one Simon, the sorcerer of Samaria in the time of the original Apostles, leader of the Babylonian mystery religion having the title of Pater or Peter, meaning Papa, actually appropriated the name of Christ and the Christian principle of grace…and started what today is called Christianity. How astonished the world will be to discover that it is not, and never was, the outgrowth of the Church of God founded by Jesus Christ and His Apostles…People will be shocked to learn how they have been deceived,” (The United States and Britain in Prophecy,” 1980). And when the Masonic agents reveal that Rome has worked alongside them for decades, or when Rome openly shows her hand by acting as the New World religion, who will doubt this hateful lie? The hatred for the Church was at fever pitch already when Vatican II was first announced; it abated somewhat owing to the ecumenical hand extended to other religions. But once the sex scandals broke, Rome fell to new lows in the eyes of the world. Today the hatred of “Catholics” in some quarters is almost as intense as hatred of the Jews, but this time for good reason.
Having falsified the papacy, secret societies also will be forced to invent what they know Christians will perceive as the Antichrist — a political figure who will be presented as the true Messiah of all peoples, a replacement for Christ. He will, no doubt, be one of the many antichrists St. John told us to expect, but not THE Antichrist proper. That man reigned long ago and while all welcomed him and paid homage to him in different ways, he was never recognized as the authentic Man of Sin, except by a very few. And yet he fulfilled every biblical prophecy that pertains to the abomination of desolation. That man was Paul VI, and as early as the 1970s several Catholic authors who left the Vatican II church already had written works that depicted him as Antichrist. Later others would add details to this information that made it all the more believable. Only a man perfectly opposed to Christ — a traitorous vicar giving serpents for bread — could qualify as Antichrist. The ancient Fathers, also St. Bernard, held this theory as did many approved theologians, according to Henry Cardinal Manning. And Pope Paul IV officially interpreted the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place as a heretic usurping the papal see in his infallible 1559 bull, Cum ex Apostolatus Officio.
The case for the current vacancy of the papal see (interregnum) is solidly grounded in Church teaching and Canon Law. These proofs have been available for decades, from various sources. While Armstrong’s scenario is convincing, this Masonic-controlled papal imposture over the past five decades, in and of itself is more convincing still. Because what Masonic Illuminists can say, when the time is right and they finally decide to destroy what externals remain of the true Church, is that in reality it ceased to exist long ago, and to all appearances it did. Once a true pope no longer exercised papal jurisdiction, not even the cardinals created by Pius XII could exercise it; they could only act to elect a true pope, (see Pope Pius XII’s Vacantis Apostolica Sedis on papal election). Divine jurisdiction is granted only to a true pope, legitimately elected, and to no one else. The inability of the usurper to grant the necessary jurisdiction to bishops for the ordination of priests and consecration of bishops, also for delegation to priests for confession, means that a certain number of priests were illicitly ordained and consecrated and many seminarians never became priests at all. Also, confessions were invalidly heard and Masses were celebrated illicitly and sacrilegiously from the day John 23 took office. In 1968, when the new rites of the Sacraments were introduced under Paul VI, nothing remained of the Sacraments Christ instituted save lay baptism and the emergency form of marriage. Passing for Catholic it has sent millions of unshriven penitents to their Private Judgment and involved other millions in sacrilege for receiving the Eucharist, illicitly or invalidly consecrated or not, without being validly absolved from their sins.
True Catholics believe that the Church will last until the consummation — the earth’s destruction by fire. They know that faith is belief in things unseen, so whether the Church at this point in time is visible or not does not affect their faith in Christ’s promises. In the 1940s while he was a cardinal, Paul VI betrayed bishops and priests secretly sent into Russia to create clergy, sending them to their death. This happened in several different instances over time. But regardless of what Freemasons have done, disenfranchised Catholics believe that Christ has preserved hierarchy somewhere who can and will restore the Church if and when God so wills. And even if such hierarchy didn’t exist, Christ could miraculously restore the hierarchy in some way, if this is truly His will for the Church, just as He rose from the dead. The enemies of Church and State may gleefully boast that God and His Church are no longer with us but God will not be mocked. The Romans believed Christ was dead when in the tomb as well, but this was not the case. We know a decisive battle for the world is reaching its climax because Scripture predicts this and Our Lady told us so at Fatima, but we cannot fight it unless we have exposed the deceits of the enemy. As Card. Manning wrote: “The theory that politics and religion have different spheres is an illusion and a snare,” and this is especially true where the Masonic subversion of the Church — and all other religions — is concerned. The two are inseparably entwined although all passes as political today, and none dare point fingers at the Masonic religionists formulating the political views.
Documenting Masonry’s political origins is important. But separating it from the initial destruction of the Church — Masonry’s most covert but cherished triumph — is akin to insisting that the Catholic Church played no real part in warning the world of the dangers secret societies pose, thereby staying the hand of Freemasonry. We cannot ignore cause and effect; we do so only by shutting down our rational thinking processes. Freemasonry’s victory has been directly linked to the advent of the Vatican 2 “popes” and their Masonic ecumenism, the whitewash of Freemasonry itself and the exoneration of the Jews for their complicity in Christ’s death. The predicted reign of Antichrist as an antipope usurping the papal see and Antichrist’s system as a series of spinoff antipopes is the only logical explanation for this success. But who will help Catacomb Catholics, oppressed for so long and so few in number, fight for the very survival of the true Catholic Church of all time — headless and eclipsed but invincible? Without help from those who know the truth from a political standpoint at least, the truly heinous nature of Freemasonry’s treachery in oppressing religious freedoms will never come to light. And unless it comes to light today, it soon will be lights out for all Christians of any denomination anywhere.
