Two main themes are covered:
New World Order
Lucifer, the supposed illuminator of mankind, also has a secret plan in the earthly sphere for world domination that has been handed down through the centuries within occult societies. According to Masonic sources, the most important Mystery of secret societies is an ancient plan, passed down for thousands of years by oral tradition, for the establishment of a world government - a "universal democracy" - a "New Atlantis."
This New "World Order" as it is commonly called, is the concept of a model society with an "enlightened" world government. In this model, Christianity and religion is subsumed into the philosophy and illumination of the Mysteries. There are two variants: one is the New Age Movement, which seeks a one-world religion and social order based on a revival of the Mysteries; another is radical atheism, which seeks the destruction of all outward religion in a Communist society.
Relevant to this is the ancient legend of the lost continent Atlantis, in which there existed a model society in complete harmony ruled over by seven kings; another three kings in the Atlantean league ruled over Europe, Asia and Africa. The league was broken when the seven kings of Atlantis decided to conquer the other three continents. For this act the gods supposedly destroyed Atlantis in a flood. However, a closer look shows that the legend is a corruption of the Genesis Flood. This is a common Babylonish practice to link gods to perverted versions of Noah's Flood. The Atlantis legend also has a strange similarity to the description in Revelation of the beast with seven heads and ten horns that rose out of the sea. (Rev 13:1) and to the ten horns in Daniel's vision (Dan 7:24).
The ancient Greek philosopher Plato recorded the Atlantean legend. He got his information from Solon, an older writer who learnt of the legend from the priests of the Temple of Isis in Egypt. Further elements of the legend have also been preserved through occult societies and Freemasonry. It is versions of this Atlantean model of society which the occult societies and Freemasonry have sought to re-establish. Plato's principles of philosophy and his model republic based on the Communist principles of common property, are also expressions of this model society.
The occult societies saw the continent of America as an ideal place to establish their model society, a recreation of Atlantis - even before Columbus arrived there
The discovery of America by Columbus in 1492 was of profound significance. He sailed under the sign of the red cross, the sign of the Templars. After the discovery, the Pope laid claim to the Americas as his own, and divided them between Spain and Portugal. The Church of Rome and in particular the Jesuits had enormous influence all over Central and Southern America in the following 200 to 300 years. The Jesuits founded their model society in Paraguay, based on the Communist principles of Plato. The parallel between the Jesuits' Communist state of Paraguay in the 17th century and the New World Order of the occult societies is remarkable.
The superiority of Rome declined in Central and Southern America during the 18th & 19th centuries, as revolutions occurred that gave birth to countries we know today. Let's see how they fared in the struggle for North America.
Freemasonry and the Formation of the USA
An occult Masonic group of settlers arrived who had it as their aim to establish the "New Atlantis." Leading figures behind this movement were the explorer Sir Walter Raleigh and the writer Sir Francis Bacon; both were initiated into the occult and were vigorous campaigners for the settlement of America. Bacon was regarded by some as "the Founder of Freemasonry" - "the guiding light of the Rosicrucian Order" -- the members of which kept the torch of true universal knowledge, the Secret Doctrine of the ages, alive during the dark night of the Middle Ages. In the early 1600s Bacon authored a novel entitled "New Atlantis," which laid out the idea of a utopian society across the ocean from Europe.
The Masonic colonists inspired by Bacon set up the colony of Jamestown in 1607. However, the mode of conduct and communal principles proved a disaster and the colony barely survived.
Subsequently, another set of colonists, the "Pilgrim Fathers," landed in New England. They were Protestants fleeing persecution. In their first winter they also nearly perished through the same mistakes as those made in the Jamestown colony. Being Christians, not occultists, their leader, Bradford, followed a system of land ownership by giving each family a plot of land. God blessed them and they flourished and expanded as further Puritan refugees arrived from Britain. Bradford later severely criticized the Communist system of Plato, where all property was held in common, which had been foisted on the Pilgrim Fathers by certain London merchants who had financed the voyage.
The presence of the Puritans and their policy of private land ownership, was a great obstacle to the hopes of the Freemasons and the occult societies to form their New World. Similarly, the large population in Britain poised a problem for them, which they tried to circumvent by adopting a facade of Christianity in order to attract Christians to their number. However, most Masons professing Christianity had no idea of the dark motives and aims underlying Freemasonry; they became the unwitting tools of the powers of evil and darkness.
These Masonic groups became very influential in the America colonies during the 18th century. They were the driving force behind the America Revolution, which led to the declaration of Independence in 1776 and the formation of the United States. The majority of the early leaders and presidents of the USA were Masons, albeit mainly at a low level. Despite this the leading Masons were frustrated by the strong Christian influence on the new US Constitution. It was the Christian character of the Americans that helped to shape the new nation, countering the Masonic influence.
However, a third group of settlers arrived in 1634 were Romanists led
by Lord Baltimore. They founded Maryland, that later became one
of the States of America. A Jesuit priest spiritually directed them; they
became the nucleus for a subtle expansion of Romanist and Jesuit influence
in the American colonies. The Carroll family from the society was inextricably
allied with the Freemasonic revolutionary movement. The Jesuits also incited
America Revolution, and it is asserted that the Jesuit Gen. Ricci engineered
the demise of the Jesuit society in Europe as a ploy to divert attention
away from the plan to create the New World Order in
Other research shows that there is a deeper significance to the symbols than simply Freemasonry; the symbolism is in fact derived from pagan Rome, viz. "Novus Ordo Seclorum," which mean New World Order, comes from the pagan Latin poet Virgil. Furthermore, the site for the new capital of the USA, Washington DC was on land owned by leading Romanists. Prior to being called "District of Columbia," the land was called "Rome!" Moreover, the Capitol of Washington DC was given plot number 666. Even the word "Capitol" was derived from the Latin word for temple of Jupiter. Washington DC also became the home for the famous Georgetown College (now university) where the USA's leading diplomats and politicians are educated. However, it was founded and is still controlled by the Jesuits.
During the early years of the USA there was a struggle by the higher initiates of Freemasonry to advance the occult revolutionary cause, including great figures such as Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. These men had close contacts with Europe Freemasonry and the revolutionary movement that instigated the French Revolution. The horrors of the French Revolution opened the eyes of many to the extreme elements of Freemasonry. Additionally, a great blow was dealt to Freemasonry by the exposures in 1826 of Morgan, who openly published the secrets of Freemasonry. He was promptly murdered by fellow Masons, but the cat was out of the bag and it caused many to renounce Freemasonry in the USA. Subsequently, an anti-Masonic movement strengthened the laws and constitutional position of the USA. The occult societies nevertheless continued to grow and exert great power in the USA today. The Freemasons, Jesuits and Romanists also greatly increased their numbers despite internal differences.
Papal Ambition in North America
The Church of Rome tried to gain a dominant position in the USA by means of mass immigration from large Romanist communities in Quebec and Ireland to the new territories of the USA. A French speaking Romanist community was also planned in Illinois to ultimately dominate the Mid-West of the USA. However, the Lord remarkably opened the eyes of, Chiniquy, the founder of this community and many others to see the light of the Gospel, causing the plan to backfire, affecting all of the USA, in that Chiniquy spread the message to all French speakers in the USA and in Canada. It dealt a heavy blow to the Church of Rome in North America.
Another ploy to gain Rome's dominance in North America was the military intervention in 1863 of the French Emperor Napoleon III, that overthrew the Mexican republic and transformed it into a Romanist empire ruled by an Austrian Archduke. This empire collapsed in a revolution in 1867. However, it's no coincidence that Napoleon's expedition in Mexico occurred at a critical period in the America Civil War.
The Jesuits and the Church of Rome were working to subvert the USA, and in particular its Constitution that was largely based on the principles of the Gospel, with the freedom it entails. Rome also had a great adversary in Abraham Lincoln. He was originally a lawyer in Illinois who ably defended Chiniquy in 1856 against the Jesuits and the corrupt Romanist Bishop of Chicago. On numerous occasions they brought Chiniquy before the courts on false charges, but Lincoln publicly exposed the schemes of the priests in open court. Chiniquy warned him that it might still cost him his life
A few years later Lincoln became President of the USA; this was at a time when the issues dividing the USA were coming to a head, including the great question of abolition of slavery. The Church of Rome helped to stir up and encourage much of the division that led to the outbreak of civil war in 1861. The Pope was quick to recognize the rebel Confederate States. Following the Pope's public support of the Confederacy, multitudes of Romanist soldiers in the Unionist army of President Lincoln deserted to the Confederacy. Despite this and the threatening presence of the French army in Mexico, the Unionist army was finally victorious in 1865 after very heavy loss of life.
A few days after the end of the Civil War, Lincoln was assassinated by the Jesuits, as Chiniquy had warned they were planning to do. Lincoln, as a Christian, believed that his stand, especially against and the designs of the papacy to destroy liberty in the Americas, was line with Biblical principles. He also knew that his stand might cost him his life. Chiniquy presented compelling evidence that the Church of Rome ordered and instigated the Lincoln's murder, aided by the Jesuits. Despite executing its revenge against Lincoln, the policies of the Church of Rome towards the USA lay in tatters, as they did in Europe.
Loyola and the Illuminati
We have seen that the Knights Templars secretly propagated occult rites under the authority of the Pope, and that they were suppressed in the 14th century. After this they carried on their work under other names in great secrecy. One such that deserves special attention is the Illuminati, also known as the "Alumbrados" in Spain. Loyola came to control the Illuminati before founding the Jesuit order. The Illuminati secretly became the most important branch of the Jesuit order. Modern day Jesuits also remained inextricably rooted in the occult - and allied to and at the service of the Church of Rome. Weishaupt formed the group called the "Illuminati" in 1776. It was an occult society linked to Freemasonry. Weishaupt's planned to use a facade of Christianity to attract influential well-intentioned Christians into his ranks. Professing Christians at lower levels were taught that the Illuminati were working for Christian unity throughout the world. However, Weishaupt and a select few were in reality hatching a satanic plot to bring in his own version of the Occult New World Order, with a return to nature and the establishment of "reason" as man's religion. This was to be achieved by the total destruction of existing society, government, monarchies and religion by means of revolution and anarchy. Only the highest initiates of the Illuminati knew about these objectives.
It seems that Weishaupt had been a Jesuit all along. The name of his apparently new society, the Illuminati, was the same as that which Loyola belonged to and had placed under the cover of the Jesuits. The similarities between the Illuminati and the Jesuits were in any case, remarkable. Firstly, the underlying principle of Weishaupt's Illuminati was identical to that of the Jesuits, namely that the ends justify the means. They believed that violent revolution and destruction of lives, property and society itself was justified - if it brought in a new model society. Secondly, the Illuminati used the Jesuit practice of infiltration. Weishaupt secretly placed members of the Illuminati within the highest levels of financial and government circles in Europe. Furthermore, it is important to note that Weishaupt formed the Illuminati shortly after the suppression of the Jesuits, and that Jesuits were among his recruits.
The French Revolution
Weishaupt's Illuminati quickly gained ground, which is not surprising, given its connections with powerful Jesuits and European Freemasonry. The first target of Weishaupt's revolution strategy was the destruction of the French monarchy. It largely served as revenge for France's suppression of the Jesuits.
In 1782 the Illuminati and Freemasonry in Europe were officially united. From this point the illuminized Freemasonry moved to Frankfurt, which was a great financial center of Germany. There they became closely linked with leading financiers - of whom some also had links to the Vatican.
As some of these leading financiers were Jewish, the wrong conclusion was drawn that the Jews were behind the Illuminati and subsequent revolution movements. It is not true, the Bible shows that many nations, including Israelites, fell prey to the false religion of Babylon. Erroneous claims about Jewish conspiracies have been the source of anti-Semitic propaganda since the days of Weishaupt. This "error" was used extensively by the Nazis.
The state of Bavaria got wind of Weishaupt's activities, and here the union of the Illuminati and Freemasonry proved crucial for the survival of the plot. In 1786 the Bavarian authorities raided the houses of leading Illuminati and captured many incriminating documents, although Weishaupt himself managed to escape. They banned the Illuminati and sent out warnings about the revolution plot to other nations in Europe. Tragically, the warnings from Bavaria were ignored. The Illuminati and Freemasonry had already merged and spread its evil in financial circles and influential government officials throughout Europe. Within a few years the anarchy of the French Revolution was unleashed.
Despite the aim of creating a new model society out of the ruins of France, that was then to spread the revolution abroad, the devastating effect on French society and the economy caused the revolution to effectively burn itself out. However, out of the ruins arose Napoleon (also a Freemason), who lead France and Europe towards a new order which followed the pattern of the Roman Empire. He permitted the re-building of the Church of Rome in France, but did not allow it to exert power over the civil government.
Note that the motto of the French Revolution, "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity," was of Masonic origin. The occult notion of liberty is one of freedom from all moral constraints. In the Mysteries the title given to Dionysus was "Eleuthereus," and to Bacchus was given the similar title "Liber." These come from the Greek and Latin respectively, but both mean "free." From there the gross immorality we find in the worship of Bacchus.
Another symbol of the French Revolution that has been adopted ever since by Socialists and Communists, was the red flag - the color symbolizing blood and fire in the Mysteries.
There is evidence that Marx was led into Communism through being initiated into Satanism and illuminized Freemasonry. Like Weishaupt, he had a great hatred of God and religion. Socialist revolution was just an end to fight against that which they hated. Here Satanism and atheism are companions. It is most extraordinary that Marx and Engels, who wrote the Communist Manifesto in the 1800's, were actually coached and directed by Jesuits priests.
An example of the Jesuit connection with revolution is the actions of Napoleon III. He came to power as a socialist, but his revolutionary Masonry strangely turned towards the Jesuits and the Church of Rome once he was the head of the French government - Jesuit infiltration must have caused this.
Another peculiar coincidence is seen in the occult society, the Ku Klux Klan that was formed by Confederate Army officers after their defeat in the America Civil War. They protested against the freeing of black slaves. However, in its racist attacks and propaganda, it was closely linked to Nazism. The Ku Klux Klan is also of Masonic origin and is an open opponent of the Church of Rome - although it is alleged that the organization was established by Romanists and then controlled by Jesuits. Its main aim is to discredit Protestants, by preaching racial hatred and violence whilst calling itself a Protestant organization. They are also Holocaust deniers.
Not only the Vatican supported the Confederacy, the Freemasons did as well, including the Leading occultist and Mason, Albert Pike. The symbolism of the Ku Klux Klan is also striking. They have the fire-cross as a symbol, which is a symbol of the god Tammuz. It is most noteworthy that the Church of Rome at this time in the 19th century used the fire-cross in its Easter worship at St. Peter's. The name Ku Klux Klan is derived from the Greek word "kuklos," which means circle. The circle is a Mysteries symbol for the sun god, which is widely used in the Church of Rome, Freemasonry and witchcraft. (Back to Festivals#fire-cross)
The Jesuit oath = occultic, viz. performed under a yellow and white Papal banner and a black banner with a dagger and a red cross above a skull and cross bones with the initials I.N.R.I. with its meaning underneath: "Icstum Nacar Reges Impios" - "it is just to annihilate impious rulers." [Biblically, these initials represent the Roman inscription above Christ's head, meaning, "Jesus of Nazareth the king of the Jews."
On the floor is a Red Cross upon which the postulant candidate kneels. Their superior hands him a mall black crucifix which he takes in his left-hand and presses to his heart and the Superior at the same time presents him a dagger which he grasps by the blade and holds the point against his heart
For the sake of propriety we'll omit the awful and violent declarations that are made in the oath itself, which ends with a blood oath similar to Freemasonry. Another scene in which the occult/Romish rites merge, is provided by photographs from a French Carmelite Convent, viz. A nun praying in front of a cross and human skulls. This publication also exposes unspeakable acts of cruelty carried out at convents.
Union of American and European illuminized Freemasonry
The union came from collaboration between Pike and Mazzini in the creation of a new supreme rite, the New and Reformed Palladian Rite (1870). Pike became the Sovereign Pontiff of Universal Freemasonry, and arch-revolutionary and Communist, Mazzini, the Sovereign Chief of Political Action.
Pike set out a terrible plan for revolution and world war in 1871. This devilish plan to re-establish the Mysteries and the worship of Lucifer shows that the Occult does not only use a facade of Christianity, but also operates under the cover of atheism.
Meanwhile in Rome, Pope Pius IX under the influence of the Jesuits put forward
decrees in 1864 trampling on all freedom of religion and expression, restating
absolute power of the Church of Rome over the whole world. In 1870, following
the loss of the Pope's temporal power over the Kingdom of Italy, the decree
of Papal infallibility was made - a copy ascribed to the Sovereign Pontiffs
of the ancient Babylonian Mysteries.
