Is there any difference between Witchcraft, Satanism, Illuminism(Luciferianism) and Masonry?
Perhaps a few more quotes will show the close correlation between them, and allow you to see that it is all semantics.
"Now witchcraft consists of knowledge, and knowledge brings power. Power shared is power lost. Although we have entered the Age of Aquarius, along with it's attendant freedom and loosening of restrictions, it will still be very much in your interests as a witch to shroud certain of your doings in a reasonable veil of secrecy."
---Paul Huston, Mastering Witchcraft
The Freemasons and those who wish to bring about a New World Order believe in the Age of Aquarius too. These restrictions that we are supposed to be freed from and those of the Age of Pisces, which we are in now. The symbol for Pisces is a fish. The symbol of a fish represents Christ.
I found some interesting information on what is believed by these people about the Age of Pisces and Aquarius respectively.
When you explore the links on the website of the Oracle Institute(www.oracleinstute.org), you find that their symbol is the pentacle, so obviously, their site is passing along occult teachings.
Their teachings are Luciferian in disquise. They also teach that religion keeps us subserviant to God and separated from him. They say that priests have set themselves up as mediaries between us and God, during the Piscean Age. A thorough study of the Bible shows that Christ is our true intermediary.
The website also says that Satan is made up by Christians. They then go on to say that Pisces is a water sign, and symbolizes the oceans dividing effect on Earth. Basically, they are saying that religion causes the division between men, not the failure to follow religion.
They next go on to say that Aquarius is symbolized by an angel pouring water out on a
parched earth. This angel symbolizes a fusion of all faiths into a unified religion. This
new age is supposed to be marked by peace, equality, unification and inner spirituality.
Men will not need to depend on religion to go to heaven, and we don't need a deity.
" Instead, our ability to join with the Light is contingent on our ability to discern
Truth and then spread Love, as evidenced by our practice of compassionate works which
help others and increase unity."
Why is a an air sign represented by water? I think the angel is more significant and represents Lucifer and he is pretending to be God by pouring water on the earth.
There are many verses in the Bible that refer to one of God's aspects with descriptions of water being poured out, so they are claiming symbology that can also be applied to the word of God. Sometimes it is referring to destructive forces of God and others it refers to his word.
Both can be thought of as God's will.
Jeremiah 6:11 "Therefore I am full of the fury of the Lord' I am weary with holding in: I will pour it out upon the children abroad, and upon the assembly of young men together:
for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the aged with him that is full of days."
1 Samuel 7:5-6) "And Samuel said, Gather all Israel to Mizpeh,
and I will pray for you unto the Lord. And they gathered together to Mizpeh, and drew water, and poured it out before the Lord, and fasted on that day, and said there, We have sinned against the Lord. And Samuel judged the children of Israel in Mizpeh."
Psalms 22:14 "I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels."
Mark 14:13 "And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into the city, and therefore shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him."
Joel 2:28 "And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh;
The concept of baptism and salvation/rebirth through it is a water symbol. Also, the
Flood symbolizes both God's judgement on man as well as his salvation of those who were on the ark.
They say that the way you get to the light is through meditation. Prayer is considered an outdated method of reaching God. We no longer need to pray to God and wait for an answer. We now only need to tap into the light within ourselves and that way we can "arrive at the truth on our own."
Aquarius is an air sign. "during the Great Cusp [between Pisces and Aquarius]
mankind invented telephones, satellites, and the internet, which are all air
methods of communication. In addition, mankind built airplanes, jets, and rocket
ships as air methods of travel."
Satan is referred to as "the Prince of the Air." Ephesians 2:2. Some translations say "prince of the power of the air." This is interesting considering all of these technologies mentioned above.
The very last thing at the bottom of the page says:
"We wish all of you Truth, Love, and Light
and a gentle passage into the New Millennium.
And so it mote be."
So mote it be is a Freemason expression. It also figures prominently in Wiccan practices. I was more familiar with the expression in connection with Wicca. A few years ago, I attended a funeral where they conducted a Masonic ceremony. At the end of their prayer, they said, "So mote it be." I felt like I had been gut punched. At that time, I did not know that the Masons used this expression and I thought I had just witnessed a Wiccan spell being recited at a family members funeral. I have since learned that the origin of the expression is Masonic and that those who practice Satanism and Wicca picked it up from them. That should tell you a great deal.
This emphasis on heavenly bodies or astrological symbols is due to their Luciferian beliefs. Ephesians 6:12 "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the
rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."
What else could these "forces of evil in the heavenly realms" be referring to but to Satan, disguised as an "angel of light"?
"Modern Satanist groups (those that appeared after the 1960's) are widely diverse, but two major trends are Theistic Satanism and Atheistic Satanism. Theistic Satanists venerate Satan as a supernatural deity. In contrast, Atheistic Satanists consider themselves atheists, agnostics, or apatheists and regard Satan as merely symbolic of certain human traits. This categorization of Satanism (which could be categorized in other ways, for example "Traditional" versus "Modern"),is not necessarily adopted by Satanists themselves, who usually would not specify which type of Satanism they adhere to. Some Satanists believe in God in the sense of a Prime Mover but, like Atheistic Satanists, still worship
themselves, due to the deist belief that God plays no part in mortal lives."
Theistic Satanism (also known as Conservative, Spiritual or Traditional Satanism) is the worship or reverence of Satan as a deity. It comprises several viewpoints, and typically includes a belief in magic, which is manipulated through various rituals. It may also include the usage of meditation and self expansion. Traditional Satanists often find inspiration from older sources such as the 1862 book Satanism and Witchcraft.
Luciferianism can be understood best as a belief system or intellectual creed that venerates the essential and inherent characteristics that are affixed and commonly given to Lucifer.
Luciferianism is often identified as an auxiliary creed or movement of Satanism,due to the common identification of Lucifer with Satan. Some Luciferians accept this identification and/or consider Lucifer as the 'light bearer' and illuminated aspect of Satan,giving them the name of Satanists and the right to bear the title. Others reject it, giving the argument that Lucifer is a more positive and easy-going ideal than Satan. They are inspired by the ancient myths of Egypt, Rome and Greece, Gnosticism and traditional Western occultism.
LaVeyan Satanism is a religion founded in 1966 by Anton LaVey's teachings are based on individualism, self-indulgence, and "eye for an eye" morality. Unlike Theistic Satanists, LaVeyan Satanists are Atheists, Agnostics and Apatheists who regard Satan as a symbol of man's inherent nature. According to religioustolerance.org, LaVeyan Satanism is a "small religious group that is unrelated to any other faith and whose members feel free to satisfy their urges responsibly, exhibit kindness to their friends, and attack their enemies". Its beliefs were first detailed in The Satanic Bible and it is overseen
by the Church of Satan." (Demons and Angels - Page 73)
Illuminism or Luciferianism claims to have the true wisdom and knowledge that we should attain to, but the Bible says that Lucifer’s wisdom is corrupt.
"Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee." Ezekiel 28:17
"God, who alone existed from all eternity, omnipotent, and infinite in all his attributes and perfections, created the Universe without any pre-existing elements whether spiritual or material; according to the traditions of orthodox Hebrews or Christians, the angels--pure spirits--were created in the morning and man in the evening of the creation's period. The same traditions tell us that among the angels, stood one most remarkable for his brightness, his brilliant qualities and faculties; he was consequently called LUCIFER, viz: LIGHTBEARER. This most brilliant and shining angel attempted to set himself
up in the place of the Most High, and was followed by legions of other angels; while the great majority, under the leadership of St. Michael remained faithful to God, their creator and Sovereign Lord. Since then the name of LUCIFER has been applied not only to the apostate angel, but also to men, who, like the King of Babylon, have followed the example of the fallen angel,and attempted to set themselves or something else in the place of God Almighty. The followers of LUCIFER are naturally called LUCIFERIANS, whether their leader is the fallen angel or men who are his imitators in their rebellion against God."
"Now let us note some different species of Luciferianisms. The FIRST is to admit and worship the real Lucifer or his Luciferian fallen angels, devils, or satans, or demons, known and worshiped as such; the SECOND is through ignorance or by mistake, the belief in and worship of EVIL SPIRITS as evil, without a conscious knowledge of the fallen angels, or devils, such as the Redskin Indians have it and practise it; a THIRD is to fancy and worship any god, demiurge, or fetich or many of them in the place of the true God; a FOURTH would be to worship and PAN, or ENSOPH, or chaos, or anything of that
kind and their emanations in the place of the true God; a FIFTH is to enthrone in the place of the true God, the elements and forces of the universe, being supposed to have existed from ALL ETERNITY and to worship them as the great architect, great geometrician, great artist, great overseer,great artificer, etc., of the universe."(Luciferianism or Satanism in English Freemasonry)
"Freemasonry is a fraternity within a fraternity--an outer organization, concealing an inner brotherhood of the elect. The invisible society is a secret fraternity dedicated to a Mysterious Secret."
---Manly P. Hall
"They [symbols] arose in ancient ages. The signs, symbols and inscriptions come to us from across long, drifting centuries, and will be found in ancient Sumerian clay tablet libraries of the cities of Lir, Lagash, and others of the first true urban civilization. This occurred about 600 years before Egypt was civilized..."
---Henry Clausen, Former Scottish Rite Freemason, Sovereign Grand Commander, Appointed 1942 by Franklin D. Roosevelt to head the Commission to Investigate the Pearl Harbor Attack
Dr. Albert Mackey wrote the Encyclopedia of Freemasonry. In it he said that the word "hoodwink" in a word for the Masonic policy of deceiving members at the lower degrees and keeping "the Mysteries of our art preserved."
"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, from them, and to draw them away from it."
---Albert Pike, former Sovereign Grand Commander Scottish Rite Freemasonry
"We must understand the God we worship is Lucifer, he is the God of Masonry."
"That which we must say to the crowd is--We worship a God, but it is the God that one adores without superstition.
To you, Sovereign Grand Inspectors General, we say this, that you may repeat it the the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st and 30th degrees--The Masonic religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine.
If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay(The God of the Christians) whose deeds prove his cruelty, perfidy, and hatred of man, barbarism and repulsion for science, would Adonay and his priests, calumniate him?
Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay is also God. For the eternal law is that there is no light without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white without black, for the absolute can only exist as two Gods: darkness being necessary to light to serve as its foil as the pedestal is necessary to the statue, and the brake to the locomotive...
Thus, the doctrine of Satanism is a heresy; and the true and pure philosophical religion is the belief in Lucifer, the equal of Adonay; but Lucifer, God of Light and God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of Darkness and Evil.
He does not call Satan a heresy because he doesn't believe in worshiping him. He says this because he believed that Satan was made up by Christians and was heresy to Luciferianism.
There have been many publications of the Masons that hold up the curious case of Diana Vaughn. She toured around the country telling how she had been a Palladist and Devil worshiper associated with Albert Pike and the Masons. Supposedly it was proven that her story was made up. But Albert Pike's words speak for themselves.
- In his book, `Terrorism And the Illuminati, Canadian author David Livingstone further explains Pike's intentions:
- "Pike then told Mazzini that, after World War Three had ended, a global social cataclysm will be provoked that will be greater than the world has ever known:
- "We shall unleash the Nihilists and Atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will be from that moment without compass (direction), anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out into public view, a manifestation which will result in the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."
- It is obvious whether or not you believe that Lucifer and Satan are one and the same, that Freemasonry's founders believed that Lucifer was the true God. They set out to disillusion Christians through Atheism and to then disillusion people against the Atheists and come in and hold up a new religion to us and hold up to us the shining light of Lucifer's wisdom and call him god.
- Does it ultimately matter if you believe in God, Yahweh, Allah or no God at all, if they intend to use that against us to destroy civilization as we know it?
