The Witchcraft Side of Masonry
Issue Date: March/April 1997
By William Schnoebelen
There is something about the Lodge that has always attracted sorcerers. The list of occultists and witches in the last century who were Freemasons reads like a Who's Who of 20th century occultism:
- Arthur Edward Waite - occult writer and Masonic historian.
- Dr. Wynn Westcott - member of the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia and founding member of the occult Order of the Golden Dawn.
- S. L. MacGregor Mathers - co-founder of the Golden Dawn.
- Aleister Crowley - master satanist of this century and founder of the anti-christ religion of Thelema.
- Dr. Gerard Encaussé - (Papus) masterful author, teacher of the Tarot and leader of the occult Martinistes society.
- Dr. Theodore Reuss - head of the O.T.O., a German occult/satanic society which made Crowley its head for the British Isles.
- George Pickingill - the master warlock (male witch) of 19th century England, leader of the "Pickingill covens."
- Annie Besant - leader of the occult Theosophical society and Co-Masonic hierarch. (Yes, there are female Masons!)
- Alice Bailey - founder of the New Age organization, Lucis (formerly Lucifer) Trust.
- Bishop C. W. Leadbetter - Theosophist, mentor to the failed New Age "Christ", Krishnamurti, and prelate in the occult Liberal Catholic Church.
- Manly P. Hall - Rosicrucian adept, author, founder of the Philosophical Research Society.
- Gerald B. Gardner - founder of the modern Wiccan (white Witchcraft) revival.
- Alex Sanders - self-styled "King of the Witches" in London and one of the most influential leaders of Wicca after Gardner.
Would you really wish to belong to an organization which welcomed these powerful sorcerers into its midst with open arms?
The Mason is "unequally yoked" together with all these unbelievers and witches in rebellion to the Word of God (II Corinthians 6:14-18). That alone is enough to knock the spiritual stuffing out of any man! END
Freemasonry Is Based On The Cabala
Professor Makow states further in his excellent work titled “ILLUMINATI 2: DECEIT AND SEDUCTION” ...
Since the so-called “enlightenment,” mankind has gradually fallen under the spell of the Cabala. What we have been taught to believe is “progress” is actually the resurgence of an ancient satanic fertility cult, epitomized by the Cabala. The “god” of the Cabala is not god at all. It is Lucifer. Illuminati Jews and their Freemasonic allies are stealthily a New World Order dedicated to Lucifer.
According to the gifted researcher, David Living stone, Lucifer's plan was formulated in the Cabala in the sixth century BC, when the Jews were being held in captivity in Babylon. According to the Bible, this exile was punishment for adopting the paganism of their neighbours, the Canaanites. They appropriated the ancient worship of the dying-god, Lucifer. Among the heinous practices prescribed by this cult were mystery rites involving music, intoxicants, orgiastic sex and human sacrifice.
The Cabala is based on ancient pagan mythologies which recount the story of an original god who created the universe, and an usurper god (Lucifer) who eventually defeats him and comes to rule the universe in his stead.
Lucifer is the offspring of the father-god and his wife, the goddess. But the son-god also marries his mother. The son-god was identified with the sun while the goddess was identified with the planet Venus, the first star seen at sunrise.
“Essentially, the god and the goddess were seen as two aspects of a single god,” Livingstone writes in his latest book “Surrendering Islam.” As such, other names for Satan have included ”Prince of Dawn” or “Son of the Dawn.”
Lucifer, who exemplified evil, was known as a “dying-God” because every winter he died. Cabalism is a sex cult tied to the cycle of the seasons. It is concerned with the incestuous mating of the god and goddess to ensure fertility.
Lucifer demands sacrifices. He must be appeased to avert his evil and direct it against one's enemies. The most evil sacrifice is the slaughter of a child. Livingstone explains:
“This [child sacrifice] became the basis of this cult throughout the ancient world. Rituals of death and resurrection imitated that of the god [Lucifer.] Participants would imbibe intoxicants and dance to music in order to achieve a state of ecstasy, or Jinn [demon] possession, by which they believed they could achieve supernatural abilities like shape-shifting, clairvoyance and other magical powers. In this state, they would slaughter a child and eat its flesh and drink its blood so that the god could be reborn in them.”
RITUALISTIC SACRIFICE, ORGIES CHARACTERIZE ILLUMINATI
Illuminati defectors testify that these practices continue today. Livingstone says these rituals usually involve sexual orgies where a priest and a priestess impersonate the god and goddess in a “Sacred Marriage.” They become possessed and produce a “son of god” who would then rule as king.
Livingstone says this is the basis of a satanic cult that now dominates the world. “It is this secret religion which is referred to as the occult. Its proponents have been advancing the satanic plan for a New World Order, and the elimination of Islam (“Surrendering Islam,” pp. 11-13).”
In light of this background, we can appreciate how pernicious the Cabalist teachings are. For example, it teaches that God has no attributes. This is satanic. God is moral, the difference between good and evil, false and true, beautiful and ugly. No wonder mankind is losing the ability to discern.
Again, the Cabala teaches that the relationship between man and God is sexual and erotic, and that sensuality and intoxication are religious. This is satanic. Livingstone's exposition of Cabala explains why sex (promiscuity, pederasty, incest) is used to degrade and satanize human beings and why modernism is a Cabalistic spell.
According to Livingstone, Jews mixed this paganism with Babylonian magic and astrology, and called Cabala an “interpretation” of Judaism. These Cabalists disguised their Luciferian agenda of world domination as preparing the world for their supposed “messiah.”

Truth is certainly stranger than fiction!!! The coming Antichrist is the much anticipated false messiah of Judaism, Cabala and Freemasons. They openly reject Jesus Christ as the true Messiah, and instead are waiting for their false messiah.
