Can We Find The Roots of FreeMasonry in the Bible?

by Jim Nations & Karen Romero

Jim Nations is one of Frances and Friends distinguished panel members.  Formerly a Freemason, Pastor Nations has studied the subject extensively and has thorough knowledge of the subject.  It is his passion to see others delivered and set free from its influence in their lives.

“This is the Stone (Jesus) which was set at naught of you builders, which is become the Head of the Corner. Neither is there Salvation in any other: for there is none other Name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4: 11-12

Freemasonry is a secret and fraternal organization which is believed to have evolved from the ancient guilds of the stonemasons. Membership is open to men only, requires no allegiance to a single faith or religion, although belief in a god is considered a necessity. The basic unit of Freemasonry is “the Lodge,” which exists under a charter issued by a Grand Lodge exercising administrative powers. The Lodges are linked together informally by a system of mutual recognition between Lodges that meet the Masonic requirements. The Blue Lodge confers three degrees: Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft and Master Mason. Additional degrees are conferred by two groups of advanced Masonry: The York Rite (which awards 12 degrees) and the Scottish Rite (which awards 29 higher degrees). The original Freemasons were required to be actual craftsman, either in stone laying or brick masonry. However, in and around the year of 1722, the Freemasons became known as the “Free and Accepted Masons” where the members were no longer required to be of the craft.

I decided to join the Masons when I was 23 years old. My father was a Freemason and it had been in my family for many generations. I petitioned the local Lodge and the first question asked on the petition was, “Do you believe in God.” Of course, being raised in a Christian home, I quickly answered “Yes” to the question and then began to feel much better about joining this highly secret organization. I was accepted into the organization right away because, upon investigating me, they found out that Freemasonry had been in my family for many generations. I was told that Freemasonry was a Christian organization; I took their word for it, as so many people do with many things in life, which can be very dangerous.

About six months after I was raised to Master Mason, which is the 3rd degree of Freemasonry, God began to deal with me and drew me back to Him. My wife and I found a Church with a Godly Pastor and I was able to get my life back in right relationship with Jesus. However, there was a feeling that God was not pleased with me being a part of this secret society. I was told not to believe what was said on the outside about Freemasonry and that the Masons would tell me what I needed to know because, after all, I was now “illuminated.” I was also led to believe that I was somewhat superior to those on the outside, not to mention the fact that I was bound by a death oath which forbade me to even look outside of the lodge.

It got to the point where I would not attend the meetings anymore because of these feelings that I had when I was at the Lodge or when I wore the Masonic ring, but yet I still continued to pay my yearly dues and stay in good standing. God was so very patient with me as I would point out to Him all of the good works that the Masons were doing and try to convince Him that it was a good solid organization. One day, when I could not stand it any longer, I decided to take a look on the outside, which, as I stated before, I had been forbidden to do by the hierarchy of the Freemasons. As you read this article, you will discover some of the conflicting viewpoints and deep dark secrets which I found out in my years of digging and unearthing the secret society of the Freemasons.
For those of you who are Freemasons who may read this article, I desire to choose my words very carefully because I know how sensitive the issue can be because I have personally been there myself at one time. My biggest concern is for those of you who are true born-again Christians who may feel little questions come up when you are in the Lodge and when you see or hear things which just don’t feel right in your spirit. These are feelings that only the Holy Spirit can cause you to feel; it is a spirit of discernment. I felt uneasy in my spirit when I was a Mason and attended meetings and rituals at the Lodge. Despite the fact that I was out of Church at the time, I still perceived that something was not quite right but I just could not put my finger on it. It is those of you who feel as I did back then that I especially want to reach with this article. If you truly desire to serve the Lord and want to know the truth, then this article can help you to understand why Freemasonry is not biblical despite the fact that the organization uses some elements which can be found in the Bible, such as the names of certain individuals from the Old Testament. Jesus said in Luke 11:35, “Watch, then, that the light in you is not darkness.” I pray that you will leave the light that was dark and come back to the One and Only True Light, which is Jesus Christ and Him crucified buried and resurrected, not some pitiful man going through a ritual mocking what Jesus did to redeem humanity and believing he is saved, born again!


In this article we will be investigating where the true roots of Freemasonry originated, as well as, where the Freemasons claim that the organization actually originated. We will begin this investigation by looking at what the Bible states because the Masons claim, or a least they did back then, that some of their teachings come from the Bible with some even going as far as to claim that Jesus was a Mason. You will soon see what Jesus had to say about people who gather behind closed doors, lock themselves in and cover the windows so that no cowans or eavesdroppers can know what sordid things are going on inside. It is not difficult to see here that the Bible contradicts with many of the claims and practices of Freemasonry.

Freemasonry claims that they have “true light,” which is what the candidate is searching for when he enters into every degree. In the initiation ritual of a 3rd degree Master Mason, the candidate is asked, “…what do you most desire?” He is prompted to answer, “Further Light in Freemasonry.” In the first degree he is searching for light and then every degree thereafter there is more and then more light to grasp, or so they claim. Jesus said in John 8:12, “I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” If a person has already accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, meaning that he already has the “True Light” dwelling inside of him, and then joins the Freemasons, then what is he actually receiving within the confines of the Lodge? Good question! This is what is said when the candidate is ushered into the Lodge hoodwinked (blindfolded) with a cable toe (rope) around his neck. Mr.______ who has long been in darkness and now seeks to be brought to light. Now if this man is a Christian, he has just denied that he knows Jesus as the ONLY TRUE LIGHT that has ever existed in this world. This is very serious and this is what Free Masonry is about but it is really DARKNESS!!!!

This is what Jesus had to say: “No one, when he has lighted a lamp, puts it in a secret place, or under a basket, but on a lamp stand, so that they who come in may see the light (Luke 11:33).” He also stated, as previously quoted, “Watch, then, that the light in you is not darkness (Luke 11:35).” The man who holds the highest position in the lodge is referred to as “The Worshipful Master.” Jesus said in Luke 16:13, “No man can serve two masters.” And yet, the members of the lodge exalt their leader and refer to him as THE WORSHIPFUL MASTER! The secret word of a 3rd degree Mason is to only be given on the “5 points of fellowship.” It is not to be spoken out loud, but can only be spoken in the ear at a low breath. Again, we go to the Bible in Luke 12:3, where Jesus said, “Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in secret rooms shall be proclaimed upon the house tops.” In Isaiah 45: Isa 45:19 God said, I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth:…. Jesus said when He faced the high priest at His trial, St. John 18:20 I spoke openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.

In the rituals of the Blue Lodge and in a duly constituted Lodge, the Name of Jesus is never spoken during the rituals. The excuse given for such a rule is that because the lodge also accepts Jews and Muslims, they would not want to offend any of them by saying the name of Jesus Christ. I am not so sure that I buy that explanation! Turning again to the words of Jesus given in Luke 9:26, we read, “For whoever shall be ashamed of Me and of My Words, the Son of Man shall be ashamed of him when He shall come in His own and in His Father’s glory, and that of the holy angels.” Let us also read what the Apostle Paul said in Ephesians 5:11-13, “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.”

Many people only see the good deeds or works performed by the Masons within their communities. Do the Freemasons do good works? Sure they do. But they also love to sound the trumpets and stand in the spotlight bragging about what they have accomplished. (Matt. 6:2) What they don’t want the outside world to know about are the things which go on in the dark, behind closed doors and in the shadows. They don’t want you to know about the control in which they have in the local churches over the pastors who may also be Masons; or the control in which they have in the local, the national and in the international government. The Masons maintain control in the Fraternities and Sororities at our Colleges and Universities on down to the Boy Scouts; from the local city police force all the way up to the President of the United States. They control kings and nations along with other secret organizations just like them which will be elaborated upon later in another article.


Now let us go back and look at the Bible to see if we can find any solid connections to the roots of Freemasonry? The Freemasons love to make connections to their organization using the Bible. This tactic has hooked many blinded people into their occult organization. Let us look at how this is accomplished and what the end results will be which will ultimately involve America, as well as, the rest of the world!

The 3rd degree initiation of a “Master Mason” is said to be the height of ancient Masonry. This ritual re-enacts the account of the death, burial, and resurrection of one of the craft, Hiram Abiff, a widow’s son. We read in the Bible, that Hiram was one of the head workmen employed at the building of King Solomon’s Temple, and other ancient writings inform us that he was an arbiter between King Solomon and Hiram, king of Tyre; but his tragic death is not recorded anywhere, except in the archives of Freemasonry. Not even the writings of Josephus, or any other writings, however ancient, of which we have any knowledge, furnish any information respecting the death of Hiram Abiff. Another interesting side note here is that the Master Masons’ Lodge is styled to be like the Holy of Holies of King Solomon’s Temple. This was a very holy and sacred place that only the High Priest, chosen by God, could enter once a year on the Day of Atonement. If anyone entered the Holy of Holies with any sin on his heart, then he was immediately struck dead on the spot! During this 3rd degree Master Mason initiation ritual, there are different “roles” which are played out within the hierarchy of the Lodge during the initiation ceremony. This role-playing represents some important figures of the Bible’s Old Testament who were mentioned in the above paragraph. As this section unfolds, you will see a biblical description and the significance of each of the figures played out within the ceremony. The Worshipful Master plays the role of King Solomon, another Mason plays the role of King Hiram of Tyre and the candidate seeking to be initiated plays the role of Hiram Abiff, the Master Mason or the “grand architect at the building of Solomon’s Temple (this description comes directly from Freemasonry).” During the initiation ritual, the candidate for Master Mason, playing the part of Hiram Abiff, is ceremonially murdered, being struck on the head with a Mason setting mallet and then raised again from the dead by the Worshipful Master. This is why many Freemasons claim to be “born-again” despite the fact that it has nothing to do with surrender to Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. Also, Freemasons in the 3rd degree claim to become a “Master Mason” or craftsman, but in the higher degrees, they claim to be EQUAL TO GOD! Let me at this point refer to something that I believe the Lord has been dealing with me about, in Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. The question I am asking is, have these satanic rituals been acted out for centuries, playing out what will happen in the Great Tribulation when Satan will be allowed to heal the BEAST DEADLY HEAD WOUND, to deceive the whole world, accept for God’s elect, the Church being gone in the Rapture, do you want to be a part of the playing out of this deception? I PRAY NOT!!

Let us look at the sequence of events and the significance of the individuals mentioned above in the ritual. In the 5th Chapter of 2 Samuel, we see David established as King over all of Israel. Hiram, the King of Tyre, then quickly makes his move on God’s people by making contact with King David. NOW, LET US QUICKLY LOOK AT THE KING OF TYRE, AND THE POWER SOURCE BEHIND HIM! Ezekiel 28:2 states, “Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God.” NOW WE FIND OUT WHICH GOD THIS IS. We find in this same chapter that God raises Ezekiel’s eyes to the FORCE behind the “Prince of Tyre” here is the best description we have in the Bible of Satan “Lucifer” here in Ezek. 28:11-19.
Again, as soon as David ascended to the throne and was in power, King Hiram of Tyre contacted him and began to do him favors, give him gifts and stroke his ego. I believe that Satan must have known that God had His Hand on David, who had been promised by God that the seed of the Messiah would come through his lineage. Satan wanted to do everything he could possibly do to hinder or stop this from happening, so inevitably he planned to use King Hiram to corrupt and utterly destroy the nation of Israel.

David had been a great warrior and had slain many, so because he had much blood on his hands, God would not allow him build the Temple. In 1 Kings 5:3, David’s son Solomon states, “Thou knowest how that David my father could not build a house unto the name of the LORD his God for the wars which were about him on every side, until the LORD put them under the soles of his feet.” There is no record of King Hiram contacting Saul when he was King of Israel, but 2 Samuel 5:11 says regarding King Hiram’s contact with David, “And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, and carpenters, and masons: and they built David a house.” This is where the Freemasons begin to make their connections with the Bible claiming that God used the Masons to build His glorious Temple.

Once David died, his son, Solomon, ascended to the throne and was established as King of Israel. This same process repeated itself: King Hiram made his move again! 1 Kings 5:12 states, “And the LORD gave Solomon wisdom, as he promised him: and there was peace between Hiram and Solomon; and they made a league together (my italics).” God forbids Israel to make leagues or covenants with pagan nations, yet Solomon goes against the Will of God and makes a league with a pagan nation. The question in my mind, knowing the immorality in this occult secret society of Freemasonry, is: Would Solomon have descended to the place in which he did and possibly lost his soul if he had trusted God instead of embracing this pagan king and Baal worship? I don’t think so. 1 Kings 11:1-10 “But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites; Of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon cleaved unto these in love. And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart. For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father. For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father. Then did Solomon build a high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon. And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods. And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the LORD God of Israel , which had appeared unto him twice, And had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods: but he kept not that which the LORD commanded.” How it must have grieved God to see this happen to someone who was once His servant, who built His Temple and who once walked in His Ways.

Remember, as stated earlier, that there are two Hiram’s in the Freemasonry ritual; one is a king and the other one is a master craftsman. The first Hiram in the ritual is King of Tyre, who has been adequately described as a tool of Satan. The second one, Hiram Abiff, is described here in the following verse of Scripture. 1 Kings 7:14 says, “He was a widow’s son of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in brass: and he was filled with wisdom, and understanding, and cunning to work all works in brass. And he came to King Solomon, and wrought all his work.” The phrase, “HE WAS A WIDOW’S SON,” give us the connection to the female deity because all false religions have at least ONE. Here, in this example, the deity is Ashtoreth. Masons are referred to as “widow’s sons” and the Lodge is often referred to as “the widow!” Also, 1 Kings 7:13 says, “And king Solomon sent and fetched Hiram out of Tyre.” Did you notice that God did not tell Solomon to send for Hiram Abiff? Solomon took it upon himself to invite Hiram to do the work on the Temple. This Hiram is the role played by the candidate who is being initiated to Master Mason in the Blue Lodge ritual. During the ritual, he is supposedly murdered, buried and then brought back to life when the Worshipful Master, who is playing the role of King Solomon, takes hold of Hiram Abiff with the grip of the Master Mason as he is raised from the “dead.” Some men say because of that ritual I am saved, what a lie Satan can make men believe!

Masons love to connect themselves to people of power and importance regardless of how evil they may be. An example of this is found in Albert Mackey’s An Encyclopedia of Freemasonry where it states, “The legend of the craft in the Old Constitution refers to Nimrod as one of the founders of Masonry.” Nimrod was the designer of the Tower of Babel. He was so evil that God came down and confounded the languages of the people to stop them from completing their pagan work, which was to build a tower (DOOR) that would reach Heaven. This was an attempt by man to reach Heaven his own way, when God had already provided a way through faith in the promised coming Redeemer. The Tower of Babel under Nimrod was the original site of paganism! It was also the first rebellion against God after the flood and the beginning of the rebellion which continues until this present time! Revelation 17:5 states, “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” This is the real and true roots of Masonry, but this is just the beginning of the evil connections. The Masons claim that the roots of Freemasonry can be traced back all of the way to Tubal-Cain in Genesis 4:22. He was the son of the first polygamist and the second murder recorded in the Bible and was the descendent of Cain (Adam and Eve’s first born). Tubal-Cain was the first ever craftsman in brass and iron. He plays some significance in Freemasonry because in the 3rd degree Master Mason ritual, the secret password to advance further in the ritual is “Tubalcain.” To briefly summarize this section, we can conclude that according to their own admission, the original Masons were all pagans, not children of Jehovah God. From Tubal-Cain to Nimrod and all of the way to Hiram Abiff of Tyre; not a one of these men were considered noble in the Eyes of God.


In 1 Kings 11: 43 we read, “And Solomon slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David his father; and Rehoboam his son reigned in his stead.” IT IS HERE IN WHICH THE KINGDOM OF ISRAEL DIVIDES. Israel held together though Solomon’s reign and God blessed them despite the evil in which Solomon had involved himself. After his death, Solomon’s son, Rehoboam, planned to place more burdens on the people of Israel. 1 Kings 12:4 says, “Thy father (Solomon) made our yoke grievous: now therefore make thou the grievous service of thy father, and his heavy yoke which he put upon us, lighter, and we will serve thee.” Rehoboam refused to lessen the burden and as a result, the kingdom of Israel divided into the Northern and Southern Kingdoms. The Northern Kingdom in Samaria went into calf and Baal worship and the Southern Kingdom went into Baal worship. The worship of Baal had its principal seat in Tyre, where King Hiram had reigned. Judah and Benjamin became the Southern Kingdom and had several Godly kings who destroyed the high places of Baal worship but the Kingdom eventually fell and went into Babylonian captivity.


1 Kings 16 states, “Jezebel, the daughter of Ethbaal the king of the Sidonians, and Tyre, served Baal, and worshipped him.” 1 Kings 21:25 also says, “But there was none like Ahab, who sold himself to work wickedness in the sight of Jehovah, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up.” It is around this time that the prophet Elijah steps out into the world of that day and tells the people that it will not rain until God says that it will. GOD SENT ELIJAH TO THE VERY HEART OF BAAL WORSHIP IN THAT DAY TO SHOW THAT HE WILL BLESS THOSE WHO OBEY HIM! In 1 Kings 17:9, God tells Elijah, “Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.” Zarephath was situated on the Mediterranean Sea between Tyre and Sidon. God provided for this widow woman because she obeyed Jehovah instead of Baal. The Bible also reveals again the god of Ahab and Jezebel in 1 Kings 16:30-32 where it says, “And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that were before him. And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshiped him. And he reared up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria.”

I quote the above Scriptures to reveal the practice of Baal worship in the Old Testament because the worship of Baal is so easily connected to Freemasonry. Baal worship is the worship of the SUN and FIRE. All Masonic Lodges are built due east and west and it is arranged this way so that the Worshipful Master can sit in the east. In one of the Freemasonry rituals it is said, “As the sun rises in the East to open and govern the day so rises the Worshipful Master in the East to open and govern the Lodge, setting the Craft at work, giving them proper instruction for their labor.” He sits in the East in a fancy chair like a throne with the letter “G” above his head and we are told that to the Freemason one of the meanings of the letter G is God. Now we know who this pitiful man represents, he is god of the Masonic Lodge, who every candidate bows to when taking his obligation as a Freemason. When ask what makes you a Mason the answer is “my obligation” and the signs of each degree, which alludes to the penalty of breaking the obligation. If these are such GOOD MEN why are they having to be restrained with such terrible “DEATH BLOOD OATHS???” As the Sun moves through the heavens and as the Earth turns, so turns the stations in the Lodge. There is the Junior Warden who sits in the south side of the lodge because it represents where the Sun is at noon. There is also the Senior Warden who sits in the West end of the lodge because the Sun sets in the West. Isn’t it very evident that this is Sun (Baal) worship? The Washington Monument is a Freemason “Obelisk” of Sun worship and is also referred to as BAAL’S SHAFT, the male PHALLUS which connects it to the Fertility Cults the lowest of PAGANISM!!!
Do you remember the “high places” mentioned in the Bible? An example is given in 2 Chronicles 21:11 speaking of the wicked king Jehoram, where it says, “Moreover he made high places in the mountains of Judah, and caused the inhabitants of Jerusalem to commit fornication and compelled Judah there (my italics).” It is worth quickly mentioning here that I found a great many fornicators and womanizers within the confines of the Freemasonry Lodge! I realize that not all Masons were guilty of such as I was not when I was a Freemason, but the Apostle Paul warns us in 1 Corinthians 5:9, “I wrote unto you in an Epistle not to company with fornicators.” In comparing the “high places” of the Bible to the Masonic Lodge, it is common knowledge among Masons that the Masonic Lodge must be elevated at least to the second floor above the ground unless they have acquired special permission from the Grand Lodge. It is a part of the ritual that is said to keep the cowans and eavesdroppers from hearing what it going on inside, but I also believe that it is because it has to be a high place, just as the idol worship of old. Another interesting side note is that when I joined the Boy Scouts in my own home town, we met under the Masonic Lodge which is the normal standard. This is because the Boy Scouts were founded by a Freemason! Beware my friends, they start preparing them very young for the higher ranks of Freemasonry!


W. L Wilmshurst, who was a lecturer in the Lodge in the 1860 in his book “THE MEANING OF MASONRY” He says on page 34;
The initiate is placed in the Northeast corner, (it is called the N.E. corner Lecture,) he has two paths open to him a path of light & a path of darkness a path of good & a path of evil. The N.E. corner is the symbolical dividing place between the two. The North always signifies the place of imperfection and undevelopment; in olden times the bodies of suicides, reprobates and un-baptized children were always buried in the North or Sunless side of the churchyard. The seat of the junior members of the Craft is allotted to the north, for, symbolically, it represents the condition of the spiritually un- enlightened man; the novice in whom the spiritual light latent within him has not yet risen… The initiate placed in the N.E. corner is intended to see, then, that on the one side of him is the path that leads to the perpetual light of the East, into which he is encouraged to proceed, and that on the other is that of spiritual obscurity & ignorance… “WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?” Isa.14:12 Heaven is in the sides of the North from where True Light comes!!!!

W. L Wilmshurst, continued; Page 81
The human organism is the true Lodge that must be opened & wherein the great Mysteries are to be found, and our Lodge-rooms are so built & furnished as to typify the human organism. The two pillars may be seen exemplified in the human body. They are the two legs, upon both we must stand firm … and having seen the true path of initiation, which is one of spiritual rebirth. I refer to the great mystery, of child birth, every child that is born into the world, coming into this life as into a great house of initiation, through a straight and narrow way and between the two pillows that support the temple of the mothers body. The act of the physical birth is an image and a foreshadowing of the mystical rebirth and the passing through a strait gate, a narrow way in a deeper sense, without which a man will not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

The world at large is but one great Lodge and a place of initiation, of which our Masonic Lodges are the little mirrors. MOTHER EARTH is also the MOTHER LODGE of us all!!! (The Door you walk through & the PILLARS you walk between to inter the lodge represents the legs of a woman and WHAT are you walking INTO???) “SEX & WHITCHCRAFT!!!!" Elijah brings this to a climax when he confronts the prophets of Baal and asks the following question at Mount Carmel; and now I am asking the Freemasons the same question. 1 Kings 18:20-22, 24, 26-28 Strong says, “So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel , and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel. And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt you between two opinions? If the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word. Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men…And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answerers by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken….And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made. And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked. And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.” What does all this cutting and blood shed have to do with Freemasonry? While Masons may not cut themselves exactly as these pagan priests did, the oaths that they take are very bloody indeed! An example is given in the 3rd degree Master Mason oath, where it states, “All this I most solemnly, sincerely promise and swear, with a firm and steady resolution to perform the same, without any hesitation, mental reservation, or secret evasion of mind what-ever, binding myself, under no less penalty than that of having my body severed in two, my bowels taken from thence and burned to ashes, the ashes scattered before the four winds of heaven, that no more remembrance might be had of so vile and wicked a wretch as I would be, should I ever, knowingly, violate this my Master Mason’s obligation. So help me God, and keep me steadfast in the due performance of the same.” The oaths get even more bloody and binding as a person climbs the hierarchal ladder of Freemasonry. I ask again why do these so called GOOD MEN have to be restrained by these horrible BLOOD OATHS?


In 1Kings 18:38, 40 we will find that Jehovah God answered by fire on Elijah’s altar and that the 450 prophets of Baal were all killed. The Scripture reads, “Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the Burnt Sacrifice…And Elijah said unto them, Take the Prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.” Once Elijah destroyed the Prophets of Baal and proved Jehovah God to be the One True God, the Scriptures says in 1 Kings 18:41, “And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain.” Judah fell into Baal worship with the door being opened by Solomon and this ultimately led to destruction and captivity. Ezekiel 8:16 says, “And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD’s house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshiped the sun toward the east.” Ezekiel saw the elders of Israel turn their backs on the Glory of God and the Holy of Holies and he watched the Glory of God depart from the Temple, ascend to the Mount of Olives and then disappear. I weep as I read this, because just as Israel and Judah did this damnable thing, I believe that many Christians have turned their backs on Jesus Christ and the Glory of God and they are traveling facing the eastern sun rise as well. If this is you, then you are grieving the Holy Spirit every time you FEEL a touch that you can’t explain and you continually ignore His quiet persistence. The question still stands: “How long halt you between two opinions?” And furthermore, how long will God wait before His Glory departs from you? I urge you to please hear the words of the Apostle Paul when he pleaded with the Corinthians saying, “What? Do you not know that your body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, and you are not your own? For you are bought with a price: therefore Glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).”
