PART 1

 

Have you witnessed a change in religious preferences lately?  Has Paganism made inroads into nominal religious beliefs?   Once upon a time, (perhaps less then 100 years ago) people were religiously inclined.  What do I mean by that?  People were inclined to be monotheistic.  They would worship the Creator of Heaven and earth in the name of His Son, the Savior of the world.  Of course they would uses the incorrect names, but; they were closer to reality, then they are now!   Realistically speaking, this occultism resurrection (if we can call it that) has not been done in a vacuum!  The yearning for a one world government is an idea of long duration upon earth.  However, this government was in opposition to Yahweh's governmental design intended for the human race.

 

 "And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
 He was a mighty hunter before Yahweh: wherefore it is said, Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before Yahweh.
 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
 Out of that land he went forth into Assyria, and builded Nineveh, and Rehoboth-ir, and Calah,
 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah (the same is the great city).
 And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,
 and Pathrusim, and Casluhim (whence went forth the Philistines), and Caphtorim."  Genesis 10:8-14

 

Nimrod was in opposition to Yahweh's government, which will be attested to in the following scholarly works.

 

Gen_10:8-9
Besides the tribes already named, there sprang from Cush, Nimrod, the founder of the first imperial kingdom, the origin of which is introduced as a memorable event into the genealogy of the tribes, just as on other occasions memorable events are interwoven with the genealogical tables (cf. 1Ch_2:7, 1Ch_2:23; 1Ch_4:22-23, 1Ch_4:39-41).
(Note: These analogies overthrow the assertion that the verses before us have been interpolated by the J-hovist into the Elohistic document; since the use of the name [Yahweh] is no proof of difference of authorship, nor the use of ילד for הוליד, as the former also occurs in Gen_10:13, Gen_10:15, Gen_10:24, and Gen_10:26.)
Nimrod “began to be a mighty one in the earth.” גּבּר is used here, as in Gen_6:4, to denote a man who makes himself renowned for bold and daring deeds. Nimrod was mighty in hunting, and that in opposition to J-hov-h ; not before J-hov-h in the sense of, according to the purpose and will of J-hov-h, still less, like לאלהים in Jon_3:3, or τῷ Θεῷ in Act_7:20, in a simply superlative sense. The last explanation is not allowed by the usage of the language, the second is irreconcilable with the context. The name itself, Nimrod from מרד, “we will revolt,” points to some violent resistance to G-d. It is so characteristic that it can only have been given by his contemporaries, and thus have become a proper name.
(Note: This was seen even by Perizonius (Origg. Babyl. p. 183), who says, “Crediderim hominem hunc utpote venatorem ferocem et sodalium comitatu succinctum semper in ore habuisse et ingeminasse, ad reliquos in rebellionem excitandos, illud nimrod, nimrod, h.e. rebellemus, rebellemus, atque inde postea ab aliis, etiam ab ipso Mose, hoc vocabalo tanquam proprio nomine designatium,” and who supports his opinion by other similar instances in history.)
In addition to this, Nimrod as a mighty hunter founded a powerful kingdom; and the founding of this kingdom is shown by the verb ותּהי with ו consec. to have been the consequence or result of his strength in hunting, so that the hunting was most intimately connected with the establishment of the kingdom. Hence, if the expression “a mighty hunter” relates primarily to hunting in the literal sense, we must add to the literal meaning the figurative signification of a “hunter of men” (“trapper of men by stratagem and force,” Herder); Nimrod the hunter became a tyrant, a powerful hunter of men. This course of life gave occasion to the proverb, “like Nimrod, a mighty hunter against [Yahweh],” which immortalized not his skill in hunting beasts, but the success of his hunting of men in the establishment of an imperial kingdom by tyranny and power. But if this be the meaning of the proverb, יהוה לפני “in the face of [Yahweh]” can only mean in defiance of Jehovah, as Josephus and the Targums understand it. And the proverb must have arisen when other daring and rebellious men followed in Nimrod's footsteps, and must have originated with those who saw in such conduct an act of rebellion against the [Elohim] of salvation, in other words, with the possessors of the divine promises of grace.
(Note: This view of Nimrod and his deeds is favoured by the Eastern legend, which not only makes him the builder of the tower of Babel, which was to reach to heaven, but has also placed him among the constellations of heaven as a heaven-storming giant, who was chained by G-d in consequence. Vid., Herzog's Real-Encycl. Art. Nimrod.) [Keil & Delitzsch Commentary on the OT]

 

This shows Nimrod's opposition to Yahweh, the true Elohim.  This rebellion precipitated the building of the Tower of Babel in the land of Shinar.  Genesis 11:2  Shinar was founded by Nimrod.  Genesis 10:8

 

Nimrod successfully drew people away from Yahweh.  The same is happening in our time.  People are being drawn away from religious beliefs into several areas of non-belief.  Religion has successfully been removed from the public eye by groups that were organized for this intent.  And, the longer society in general continues in this vein, the worse it is going to become. 

 

 "And the rest of people, the ones not killed by these plagues, did not repent from the works of their hands, so that they should not prostrate themselves in worship before the demons and idols, the [ones] of gold and the [ones] of silver {and the [ones] of brass} and the [ones] of stone and the [ones] of wood, which are neither able to be seeing nor to be hearing nor to be walking about. [cp. Psalm 115:4-7; 135:15-17]
 And they did not repent from their murders
nor from their sorceries nor from their sexual sins nor from their thefts.  Revelation 9:20-21

 

Demon worship?  Sorceries?  Who would this be talking about?  We need to take a look at the forces operating behind the scenes.  Those so-called "Secret Societies" that really control the world's governments.  One of those groups is known as the Masons.  It is also interesting to note the connection they have to the occult.  Yahweh's name also appears in their writings.  The real force behind the Masons is Satan/Lucifer.

 

One of the major sourcebooks of Masonic doctrine is Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Masonry, written in 1871 by Albert Pike, and is considered to be the
"Mason's guide for daily living…
In it Masonry is a search after Light..."
In Morals and Dogma, Pike wrote:

"Every Masonic lodge is a temple of religion; and its teachings are instruction in religion... Masonry, like all 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...to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light, from them, and to draw them away from it... The truth must be kept secret, and the masses need a teaching proportioned to their imperfect reason… every man's conception of [Elohim] must be proportioned to his mental cultivation, and intellectual powers, and moral excellence. [Elohim] is, as man conceives him, the reflected image of man himself."

The next statement reduces the Masonic philosophy to a single premise. 

"The true name of Satan, the Kabalists say, is that of Yahweh reversed; for Satan is not a black g-d...
Lucifer, the Light Bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning!  Is it he who bears the Light...Doubt it not!" [Ibid]

 

 

 

Coil’s Masonic Encyclopaedia (95: 516-17) states the following about G-d..

“Men have to decide whether they want a G-d like the ancient Hebrew Yahweh, a partisan tribal god, with whom they can talk and argue and from whom they can hide if necessary, or a boundless, eternal, universal, undenominational, and international Divine Spirit so vastly removed from the speck called man, that he cannot be known, named or approached. So soon as man begins to laud his G-d and endow him with the most perfect human attributes such as justice, mercy, beneficence, etc. the Divine Essence is depreciated and despoiled... The Masonic test is a Supreme Being, and any qualification added is an innovation and distortion...Monotheism, violates Masonic principles, for it requires belief in a specific kind of Supreme Deity”

 


 

Central to the ritual of the 14°, Perfect Elu, is the presentation of a ring, worn by Scottish Rite Masons from the 14° through the 32°. It is a plain gold band with an equilateral triangular plate enclosing the Hebrew letter yud, the initial letter of Yahweh—the tetragrammaton—the ineffable name of God. Engraved on the inside is the Latin motto, "Virtus Junxit Mors Non Separabit" (Whom virtue unites, death will not separate). Ill. Bro. Jim Tresner, 33°, G.C., tells us in Vested in Glory, "The circular shape of the ring symbolizes unending commitment and loyalty, just as it does in a marriage. The triangular plate and the letter signify that the commitment is to the Deity."

                       


 

General Albert Pike

Albert PikeGeneral Albert Pike wrote those words in a work called Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, 1871. At the time his title was The Sovereign Grand Commander of the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite in Washington D.C. This book is revered by occult groups across the globe, and most masons have never read it, let alone understood it. It deals with the occult origins of the symbols, initiations, and rituals of Freemasonry. Morals and Dogma is typically only giving to Master Masons. It is estimated that for every hundred Masons, ten will read it, three will finish it and only one will understand it.

The rites and rituals of Freemasonry are directly derived from ancient occult mysteries. 1 An Entered Apprentice is deceived from the beginning, as Pike has openly admitted; at the same time revealing its likeness with the "Mysteries, Hermeticism and Alchemy."

Pike said the initiate is "intentionally misled by false interpretations." Another esteemed Mason put it this way:

 


Another influential individual involved in controlling leaders and governments was, Aleister Crowley.  Many people were, and still are influenced by his writings.

Aleister Crowley
Aleister CrowleyAleister Crowley (12 October 1875 – 1 December 1947), the most controversial occultist in modern times, dubbed the "wickedest man alive." There's much dispute as to his official status as a mason. The Grand Lodge of British Columbia and Yukon, however, admits to his initiation into Craft Freemasonry in Anglo-Saxon Lodge No. 343. Crowley was also conferred the degrees 33°, 90° and 96° of the Antient and Primitive Rite of Masonry, Disciples of Memphis by John Yarker. Throughout his career, Crowley was as much influenced by Freemasons as he in turn had influence on them.

Crowley has generated an intense following since his death. He has influenced countless disciples and gave birth to Satanism. Proclaiming to be the magus (and great Beast 666) of the "new age of Horus," he saw himself as the usher, or prophet, of a "new Aeon" of illuminism.

Because of his total disregard for imposed social values and his legendary rebellion toward authority, Crowley became a hero for young people - especially rock musicians of the 60s and 70s and through to the Heavy Metal acts of the 80s and 90s.

The influence on the foundation of America's governance is stamped with the Masonic impressions.  Many men of great stature in the history of America, were Masons.  That does not mean that all Masons are bad.  It shows the influence the Masons wielded in American politics.  They still have authority to this day!  I am going to include the most comprehensive list of Freemasons here: 

Famous Freemasons (PDF File)


Here is another list of Masons by state, compliments of "The Political Graveyard."  I will be bringing forth some more groups of spherical influence and show how it all ties together into the "One World Government" theme.  Pleases be patient!
