I was raised a Master Mason at the age of 24 due to the expectations of our family heritage. My dad and grandfathers were all Master Masons and my mother was in Eastern Star. I held membership in 2 Masonic Lodges as well as accepted into the Shriners.
WHERE & WHEN DID THE MASONIC ORDER ACTUALLY BEGIN ?
Historical documentation denotes that Freemasonry began in the late 1630's and was founded by the Rosicrucians. The Rosicrucian Order located in the country of France chartered the first Masonic Grand Lodge. It was dedicated to the further advancement of Egyptology, the occult, and mysticism. The Rosicrucian Order to this very day, governs the Masonic Order, to include active enforcement when required. Upon successful completion of his 32nd. Degree, a man will move into the Order of the Illuminated One's, aka: The Illuminati. This is an absolute fact as discussed within our book.
WHAT DOES A MASON BELIEVE ?
Masons hold to a very convoluted and ever-varying set of beliefs depending upon what Degree one attains within the Order. A man can become "A Christ" at the completion of his Holy Royal Arch Degree. In the basic Blue Lodge, a Master Mason who attains the rank of a Worshipful Master, is perceived as one "Hiram Abiff". Hiram Abiff is the ceremonial substitute for Christ. This is why every Mason will bow in homage, to the Worshipful Master of the Lodge. As a man progresses into the advanced Degrees, he becomes proficient in numerology, astrology, the occult, and the "Holy Book" of Freemasonry known as the Kabalah. In the 32nd Degree, a Mason becomes "An Adept" and is given the "Royal Secret" of Freemasonry.
WHAT MOTIVATES A MAN TO BECOME A MASON ?
Membership within the Masonic Lodge is restricted to men. Women are allowed membership within a minimal sub-order known as the Eastern Star. Men of Color are mainly restricted to a "counterfeit lodge" known as the Prince Hall Order. As a man moves into the advanced degrees beyond the basic Blue Lodge, he attains more power, prestige, and position. The draw of absolute mysticism becomes a compelling force that permeates the entire Order.
WHO CAN ACTUALLY JOIN THE MASONIC LODGE ?
The Masonic Lodge will accept the application of any man who professes a belief in some form of god. It doesn't matter what title that the applicant places on their god. Freemasonry accepts applications from the members of wicca, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, New Age Theosophy, Islam, witchcraft, Mormonism, or satanists. This is an absolute fact. In the end however, as a man advances into the upper degrees, he will abandon his various "religious affiliations" and adopt the secret doctrine of Freemasonry. Please understand, as clearly defined and documented in my book, Freemasonry by their own admission, is a religious order.
WHY IS THE MASONIC ORDER SO SECRETIVE ?
Like Mormonism, the Mystic Shrine,, (i.e. "Shriners"), and Wicca, all have similar roots, teachings, and rituals as found within the Masonic Order, the proverbial draw is mysticism and power. Like these sister religions of Freemasonry as governed by the Rosicrucians, the Mason is told, "the Teachers, even of Christianity, are, in general, the most ignorant of the true meaning of that which they teach." (quoted from my book).
THE MASTER MASON
Upon my successful completion of this Degree, I was "Raised" as a Master Mason
by my Worshipful Master of the Lodge. I was granted eternal life in the Celestial Lodge above with the Master Architect of the Universe. Little did I know, or understand that I had been deliberately misled and lied to throughout this entire Degree process. This is for a well defined purpose: "He, (Blue Lodge Mason), is misled by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them; but it is intended that he shall imagine he understands them. Their true explication is reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry." (from my book).
If you are a Mason, or Shriner and reading this quick summary of your beliefs, then you know what I have disclosed is true. You have a choice at this point. I had to make a decision when I came to know the Lord Jesus Christ as my personal Savior in 1976. That decision was to completely renounce my oaths and membership in the Masonic Order. My dad refused to speak with me for years, however he too, came to know Christ as Savior.
I had to decide that Jesus Christ is either who He claims to be, or like Hiram Abiff, a total and complete illusion. That is the decision that you must make while you still have time. Nobody has a guarantee on when they will leave this earth and enter eternity. We all know and clearly understand that Hiram Abiff never existed, yet by the Master Mason Degree, he becomes a real, live person.
In the Gospel of John, Chapter 3, Verse 16, it clearly states: "For God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life."
He also said in Chapter 5 of John, Verse 24: "I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have passed from death into life."
Finally, Jesus said in John 8, Verse 12 "I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won't have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life."
The "True Light" is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ. Here is all you have to do to have Jesus Christ come into your life. Pray this very simple prayer:
"Lord Jesus, I know that you alone are the Son of God. I believe that you came to this earth and died on the cross for everyone who freely chooses to accept you as their Lord and Savior.
I confess to you that I have sinned in my lifetime and I have sinned against you. Please forgive me for all of my sins. I hereby renounce completely the oaths that I took as a Mason. Please forgive me for these oaths. I also totally and completely renounce my membership in the Masonic Lodge and ask that you would remove it from my life beginning right now. I will never go back to the Lodge again.
Lord Jesus I ask that you would now come into my life and make me to be the person that you want me to be. I freely turn my life over to you beginning right now and forever. I freely confess that You are my personal Lord and Savior. Amen."
Friend if you have prayed this prayer and accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, I would like to hear from you immediately. I would like to personally congratulate you for your courage and your decision today. My contact information is:

I would strongly encourage you to visit your local Christian book store and pick up a "New Living Translation" Bible by Tyndale House Publishers. It is written in "today's language" and I find it very easy to read and understand. Please turn to the Gospel of John that is located in the New Testament and begin to read about your newly found Personal Lord and Savior. You will be absolutely amazed at His power, teaching, kindness, and love for you personally. I'm proud of your decision! God bless you and "Welcome to the eternal family of the Lord Jesus Christ".
May the Lord richly bless you in the final months of these "Last Days".
