Masonic Lodge (Part 18)

Part 18

Last week I quoted Foster Bailey from :THE SPIRIT OF MASONRY" (Kent, England: Lucia Press Limited, 1957), p. 113.

His Question and Answer would be very enlightening to anyone discerning or inquisitive enough to research it. Notice again what he said:

"May it not be true, as has been said, that if all religious and Scriptures were blotted out and only Masonry were left in the world we could still recover the great plan of salvation? (his answer:) Most earnestly should all true Masons consider this point..." I may come back later to Mr. Foster Bailey, his wife Alice Bailey, Mary Bailey and the LUCIS TRUST. (LUCIS TRUST WAS FORMERLY CALLED LUCIFER PUBLISHING!) It was incorporated in 1922 under the present name, LUCIS TRUST.

The reason I mention them today is to show that even though most Masons, especially the "Craft Degrees" (1st 3 Degrees) are not Luciferians. Many of the "Voices" of Masonry were and are even today. This is especially true of the Higher Degrees. THIS CAN BE SEEN IN THE SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT OF THE LODGE EXPLAINED BY MASONS:

Wilmshurst explains: "The East of the Lodge represents man's spirituality, his highest and most spiritual mode of consciousness" and that it is "the place of the throne of the Master of all life." THE NORTH, says he, "represents the sphere of BENIGHTEDNESS AND IGNORANCE. "Waite also believes that the North "stands in fact for DARKNESS according to Masonic symbolism.: Pike adds: "To all Masons, the North has immemorially been the place of DARKNESS: AND OF THE GREAT LIGHTS OF THE LODGE, NONE IS IN THE NORTH.: These are totally astounding statement, ESPECIALLY WHEN WE KNOW FROM THE BIBLE THAT GOD'S THRONE IS IN THE NORTH! (PSALM 48:102; ISA. 14:12-14; PSALM 75:6-7). According to this plan, God's throne is the "sphere of BENIGHTEDNESS AND IGNORANCE." AND WE ARE TOLD THAT THE THRONE OF THEIR MASTER IS IN THE EAST! Pike says, "THE MORNING STAR (described by Waite as Lucifer) rising in the EAST...is an emblem to us of the ever0approaching dawn of perfection and Masonic light.: Harry E. Wedeck, "The Treasury of Witchcraft" (New York: Philosophical Library, 1961) states on pp. 170-171 "Lucifer is one of the multiple names of SATAN. As LUCIFER the LIGHTBEARER he has his HOME IN THE EAST."

HERE AGAIN I QUOTE FROM (MASON) MAINLY P. HALL'S "LOST KEYS OF FREEMASONRY" (which, by the way, I just received brand new from Masonic publisher McCoy) "When a Mason learns that the Key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the Mystery of his Craft. The seething energies of LUCIFER are in his hands and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply (this) energy."

This explains the symbol of Baphomet worn by the first Grand Master Albert Pike, and by Sovereign Grand Commander Henry C. Clausen, and by Sovereign Grand Commander of Scottish Rite Freemasonry C. Fred Kleinknecht, and Aleister Crowley, this century's most notorious satanist!

The questions you should be asking yourself are, 1. "Did (do) they all believe the same thing?" 2. "Do you believe the same thing?" 3. "Was Albert Pike deceived? Was he a deceiver?" Albert Pike was a brilliant man no doubt, however, he studied under the likes of occultist Eliphas Levi and had connections with such as Madam Helena P. Blavatsky and Giuseppi Mazzini.

PLEASE, PLEASE LET ME SAY AGAIN, IT IS NONE OF MY BUSINESS IF YOU ARE A MASON. THAT IS YOUR BUSINESS. IT IS ALSO NONE OF MY BUSINESS IF YOU REMAIN A MASON. HOWEVER, IT IS MY DUTY AS A PREACHER OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST TO EXPOSE THE TOTAL INCOMPATIBILITY OF FREEMASONRY AND CHRISTIANITY.
