The Blue Lodge
All masons must undergo an
initation to enter the Blue lodge. The Blue lodge has three degrees:
Entered Apprentice --- Fellow
Craft --- Master Mason
To achieve each of these levels,
one must go through rituals and swear an oath. One such oath
is as follows:
"I promise and swear, that I
will not write, print, stamp, stain, hew, cut, carve, indent, paint,
or engrave any secrets on anything movable or immovable.. binding
myself under no less penalty then to have my throat cut across, my
tongue torn out by the roots, and my body buried in the rough sands
of the sea at low water mark.. where the tide ebbs and flows twice
in twenty four hours; so help me God, and keep me steadfast in the
due performance of the same"
Now the word is, they have
toned the oath down a bit, but they are still told never to tell of
the goings on and never tell any secret. Once this is done the mason
receives his degree as Master Mason and has his ring and other
trinkets to be identified by other masons. From here a mason may
choose to go on further in one of two branches. The
York Rite or The Scottish Rite.
The York Rite
Also called the American Rite, this is the most
popular one to follow. The York is perhaps the oldest form of the
craft. There are ten
degrees in in York Rite.
It is split into three categories:
The Royal Arch Chapter, The
Council of Royal and Select Masters and The Commandery of Knights
These ten include the
three from the Blue Lodge and the others are as follows:
Most Excellent Master(6th)
Select Master has
three degrees which one can enter:
Order of the Red
Order of the Knights of Malta
Order of the
Knights Templar. Knights Templar
is the highest in the York Rite.
As in the Blue lodge,
one must swear an oath of secrecy and obedience. Notice how each one
of these titles uses "Master", the tile that is given to
the Lord Jesus Christ. Members of the Craft are nothing more
the glory hunters wanting to puff up their Pride! This was and
is one of satan's flaws and as we continue, you will see the
comparison. No one but God may be worshiped.
The Scottish Rite
It is also known as Ancient and
Accepted Scottish Rite.
There are four
different lodges or chapters
The lodge of
Perfection The Grand
Council of the prince of Jerusalem
The Grand Chapter of
Rose- Croix The Grand Consistories of Divine Princes
Here are Two titles that go with
the above. They puff up one's ego.
Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret
Grand Elect Perfect and Sublime Mason
There are twenty-nine additional
degrees in this branch. I will not list them at this time. However,
the highest is the 33rd. It is called Knight Commander.
Ancient Arabic Order of the
Nobles of the Mystic Shrine.
Also Known as the Shriners.
This is the most well known branch. The Shriners operate
three children's hospitals in Boston, Galveston and Cincinnati.

is for women who are related to a Mason in some way. There are five
degrees Adah, Ruth, Esther,
Martha and Electa

Prince Hall Freemasonry
was born as a result of Black Masons who were barred from the white
No one but Jesus is worthy to be called Master!! Masons are
instructed to lie for a fellow brother in a court case. If the case
is murder, it is left up to the individual to decide how to act.
Is this Godly? Many police officers, judges, mayors, lawyers
etc. are involved. How can some one who claims to be a Christian
turn a head while corruption is all around them? I will tell you
how, they are not Christians, they are of Satan!!
I may at a later date put several pages of
information up, but for the time being, check the links to get more
in-depth info of the satanic connection. If you are a Christian, I
mean a true believer, and you are involved in Freemasonry, you had
better get out now and renounce all the oaths you have taken.
