"That same year, 1782, the headquarters of Illuminated Freemasonry moved to Frankfort, a center controlled by the Rothschild family. It is reported that in Frankfurt, Jews for the first time were admitted to the order of Freemasons. If indeed members of the Rothschild family or their close associates were polluted by the occultism of Weishaupt's Illuminated Freemasonry, we may have discovered the link between the occult and the world of high finance. Remember, the Rothschilds financed Cecil Rhodes in Africa; Lord Rothschild was a member of the inner circle of Rhodes's English Round Tables; and Paul Warburg, architect of the Federal Reserve System, was a Rothschild agent."
The aim of ALL Secret Societies is: "...as a whole was, is and will always be the struggle against the Church and the Christian religion, and the struggle of those who have not against those who have...All secret societies have almost analogous initiations, from the Egyptian to the Illuminati, and most of them form a chain and give rise to others." (Les Setes et Sociétés Secrètes, Le Couteulx de Canteleu, 1863).
"Kether - 1. I (Christian Rosenkreutz) a member of the body of Christ, do this day spiritually bind myself even as I am now bound physically to the Cross of Suffering.
Chokmah - 2. That I will, to the utmost, lead a pure and unselfish life, and will prove myself a faithful and devoted servant of the Order.
Binah - 3. That I will keep all things connected with this Order and its secret knowledge from the whole world, equally from him who is a member of the First Order of the Stella Matutina as from an uninitiated person, and I will maintain the veil of strict secrecy between the First and Second Orders.
Chesed - 4. That I will uphold to the utmost the authority of the Chiefs of the Order; that I will not initiate or advance any person in the First Order, either secretly or in open Temple, without due authorization and permission. That I will neither recommend a candidate for admission to the First Order without due judgment and assurance that he or she is worthy of so great a confidence and honor, nor unduly press any person to become a candidate; and that I will superintend any examinations of members of lower grades without fear or favor in any way, so that our high standard of knowledge be not lowered by my instrumentality; and I further undertake to see that the necessary interval of time between the grades of Practices and Philosophies and between the latter grade and the Second Order is properly maintained.
Geburah - 5. Furthermore, that I will perform all practical work connected with this Order in a place concealed and apart from the gaze of the outer and uninitiated world, and that I will not display our magical implements, nor reveal the use of the same, but that I will keep secret this inner Rosicrucian knowledge, even as the same has been kept secret through the ages. That I will not make any symbol, or talisman, in the flashing colors for an uninitiated person without a special permission from the Chiefs of the Order (Today these Chiefs are known as The Learned Elders of Zion); that I will only perform any practical magic before the uninitiated which is of a simple and already well-known nature; and that I will show them no secret mode of working whatsoever, keeping strictly concealed from our modes of Tarot and other divination of clairvoyance, of astral projection, of the consecration of talismans and symbols, and the rituals of the Pentagram and Hexagram, etc.; and most especially of the use and attribution of the flashing colors, and the vibratory mode of pronouncing the Divine names (Cabalistic and Jewish).
Tiphereth - 6. I further promise and swear that, with the Divine permission, I will from this day forward apply myself to the Great Work, which is so to purify and exalt my spiritual nature, that with the divine aid I may at length attain to be more than human (defied), and thus gradually raise and unite myself to my higher and divine genius, and that in this event I will not abuse the great power entrusted to me (raising the kundalini and uniting it with the universal ether and so linking with the masters).
Netzach - 7. I furthermore solemnly pledge myself never to work at any important symbol without first invoking the Highest Divine names (cabalistic) connected therewith, and especially not to debase my knowledge of practical magic to purposes of evil and self-seeking and low material gain and pleasure, and if I do this, notwithstanding this mine oath, I invoke the Avenging Angel that the evil and material may react on me.
Hod - 8. I further promise always to support the admission of both sexes to our Order on a perfect equality, and that I will always display brotherly love and forbearance towards the members of the whole Order, neither slandering nor evil-speaking, nor tale-bearing, nor repeating from one member to another, whereby strife and ill-feeling may be engendered. (This is invariably broken).
Yesod - 9. I also undertake to work unassisted at the subjects prescribed for study in the various practical grades, from Zelator Adeptus Minor to Adept Adeptus Minor, on pain of being degraded in rank to that of the Lord of the Paths in the Portal of the Vault only.
Malkuth - 10. Finally, if in my travels I should meet a stranger who professes to be a member of the Rosicrucian Order, I will examine him with care before acknowledging him to be so. Such are the words of this my obligation as an Adeptus Minor, whereunto I pledge myself in the presence of the Divine One I.A.O. and of the Great Avenging Angel Hua, and if I fail herein may my Rose be disintegrated and destroyed and my power in magic cease." (The Jewish Cabalistic Tree of Life, from the Jewish Cabala or Kabbalah; Light-Bearers of Darkness, Inquire Within, pp. 154-155: In reading this obligation it must be clearly understood that this Order is Cabalistic and Gnostic, Jewish and anti-Christian. In it we have the Lord of the Universe, the I.A.O. the Pan of the Gnostic cults.
The Christ in this obligation is the Serpent, the Logos of the Gnostics; a 'Christ' is a deified man. The 'Great Work' is Luciferian, the 'incarnation in humanity of the sovereign Sun,' the deification of the adept, who directing and commanding the astral light, performs seeming prodigies and miracles not for himself but always under the control of the 'Divine Guardians or the Order.' Turning to the letters above the adept's head, the I.N.R.I., we find that it is the keyword of the 5-6 grade, and is analyzed thus: I. Virgo, Isis, Mighty Mother - the reproducer of seeds and fruits on the earth - the Preserver. N. Scorpio, Apophis, destroyer - the destroying and uniting force - the Destroyer. R. Sol, Osiris, slain and risen - the generating force of the Sun - the Creator. I. Isis. Apophis, Osiris. I.A.O. - I.N.R.I. The Preserver, Destroyer and Creator, as invoked in the Equinox S.M. ceremony when bringing down the light. The Inner Sign is L.V.X.)
"Judaism itself is a kind of Freemasonry, owing to the national solidarity of the Jews, their cosmopolitanism, which set the Jews free from all local and patriotic ties, and finally, the opposition of the Jews to Christianity." (Rev. S.J. Deschamps, Les Sociétés Secrètes et la Société, p. 24).
"How often have I heard the Freemasons lament the dominance of the Jews...Ever since the Revolution the Jews have taken possession of the Masonic lodges more and more completely: and their dominance is now unquestioned. The Cabala rules as mistress in the inner lodges; and the Jewish spirit dominates the lower grades...In the mind of Satan the synagogue has an all important part to play...The great enemy counts on the Jews to govern Masonry as he counts on Masonry to destroy the Church of Jesus Christ (Christianity)." (L'Abbá Emmanuel Barbier, Infiltrations Maáoniques, quoted in Dictionnaire Apologétique de la Foi Catholique, Gustave Gautherot; He was the Professor for the History of the Revolution in the Institute Catholique de Paris, and author of several works on different phases of the modern anti-Christian movement on which he is generally recognized as one of the best authorities).
"In the early days of Christianity there sprang up in the old Pagan world, systems of the universe which seemed to be a prolongation of the philosophy of Plato, but which could be understood also as a spiritualization of the wisdom of the Mysteries. All these systems had their starting-point in Philo, the Jewish philosopher of Alexandria, who said: 'It is necessary for the soul to come out of the ordinary 'I.' Then it enters into a state of spiritual ecstasy, of illumination, when it ceases to know, to think and to recognize in the ordinary sense of the words. For it has identified itself with the divine, they have become one...'" (Le Mystère Chrétien et les Mystères Antiques, Rudolf Steiner)
It is, in fact, the Cabalistic elements in Freemasonry that act as the main driving force in the envenomed and aggressive opposition of the latter to Christianity, and it’s never-flagging efforts for the undermining and destruction of the Christian organization of society. (Mgr. Dillon, The War of Anti-Christ with the Church, p. 20).
"This intimate connection between the two powers (Freemasonry and Cabalistic Judaism) (writes R. Lambelin) is becoming so evident that there is no longer any attempt made to deny it. The Jewish lodges of B'nai B'rith, which originated in the English-speaking countries, have swarmed all over Europe, and even into Asia; and they assume the leadership of control in the whole Masonic organization. Under cover of Theosophy a new religion, which is specifically Jewish, though enveloped in a nebulous mist that obscures its character, is bidding fair to take the place of the traditional Christian belief which it flatters, and insensibly destroys." (Les Victoires d'Israel, pp. 211-212; Freemasonry and The Anti-Christian Movement, Edward Cahill, p. 92).
"But whence comes this sinister marvel (the progressive Judaic Power)? It comes from the failing of the Christian faith...from the progress of secret societies, filled with apostate Christians who desire what the Jew desires; that is to say, Judaic civilization is given to us by our teacher and master the philosophic Jew, the Jew of the 'Alliance universelle.'" (des Mousseaux; The Trail of the Serpent, Inquire Within, Miss Stoddard, p. 93).
"...Everywhere I found minds much inclined to exaltation. All feel that the old world is cracking, and that kings are finished...The harvest made should fructify...The fall of thrones makes it no longer doubtful to me, who have come from studying the work of our societies in France, Switzerland and Germany, and even Prussia. The assault which, a few years from now, or perhaps a few months, will be delivered upon the princes of the earth, will bury them under the ruins of their powerless armies and their decrepit monarchies. Everywhere there is enthusiasm among our people and apathy and indifference among the enemy (as we see today!). It is a certain and infallible sign of success...In order to kill surely the old world we have believed it necessary to stifle the Catholic and Christian germ...This brave Mazzini, whom I have met at various times, has always his humanitarian dream in his brain and in his mouth. But, apart from his small failings and his methods of assassinations, he has good in him. With his mysticism he strikes the attention of the masses who understand nothing of his grand airs of prophet or his discourses of a cosmopolitan Illuminatus..." (Les Sociétés Secrètes de France et d'Italie, 1830, The Trail of the Serpent, Inquire Within, Miss Stoddard, p. 94).
"The anti-religious but, above all, anti-Christian efforts which distinguish the present epoch have a character of concentration and universality which marks the stamp of the Jew, the supreme patron of the unification of peoples, because he is the cosmopolitan people par excellence; because the Jew prepares by license of the libre-pensÇe, the era called by him 'Messianic' - the day of his universal triumph. He attributes its near realization to the principles spread by the philosophers of the eighteenth century; the men at once unbelievers and cabalists, whose work prepared the Judaising of the world. The character of universality will be noted in L'Alliance-isrÇlite-universelle, in the Universal Association of Freemasonry, and in the more recent auxiliaries, L'Alliance-universelle-religieuse, open to those who are still frightened off by the name of Israelite and finally in the Ligue-universelle de l'enseignement..." (Le Juif, Gougenot des Mousseaux, (1869), The Trail of the Serpent, Inquire Within, Miss Stoddard, pp. 96-97)
"There will burst forth one fine evening one of these formidable crises which will shake the earth and which occult societies have long prepared for Christian society, and then perhaps will suddenly appear in open day, throughout the entire world, all the militia, all the fraternal and unknown sects of the Cabala. The ignorance, the carelessness in which we live, of their sinister existence, their affinities, and their immense ramifications will in no way prevent them from recognizing each other, and under the banner of no matter what universal alliance, giving each other the kiss of Peace, they will hasten to gather together under one Chief..." (Le Juif, Le Judaïsme et La Judaïsation des Peuples Chrétiens, Gougenot des Mousseaux (1869); The Trail of the Serpent, Miss Stoddard, p. 318).
"The results of our investigations into the many secret and occult societies both of yesterday and today, as published in the Patriot from 1930 to 1935. Everything seems to point to the Cabalistic and revolutionary Jew as the Master-mind working behind them, using them as pawns in his great gamble and world-wide conspiracy, which would disintegrate and destroy, not only the Christian Faith, but the entire traditions of Western civilization. His weapon of control and attack being the Triangle of Fire, these magnetic-forces of Life which can both slay and make alive, and by which he professes to free and enlighten the peoples, only the more surely to bind, unify, and enslave them under some unknown and alien Ruler. Moreover, to forward this sinister gamble he entraps and blinds them with the ancient catch-words: 'Know Thyself' and 'Ye shall be as Gods.' That is Illuminism or so-called Liberation of Man, Free not to use his freedom for himself, but to fulfill the Plans of the Great Conspiracy and its Supreme Pontiff!" (The Trail of the Serpent, Miss Stoddard, p. 318).
"The highest development was in the Egyptian and Cabalistic systems, and it was blended with Christian thought in the schools of the Neo-Platonists and the Gnostics...Its studies were only kept alive during the Dark Ages among the Jews who were the chief exponents of its Cabalistic aspect...and it is still alive today." (Fraternity of inner Light, Dion Fortune)
"The political development of these secret movements is always by gradual stages, culminating in revolution is always by gradual stages, culminating in revolution as a preparation for world domination by their hidden directors...the required development in India, attempted a pseudo-revival of Hinduism and later the establishment of a World Teacher, mouthpiece of her (Mme Blavatsky) hidden directors, entirely anti-Christian; further, her social and educational work led inevitably to politics, the disintegrating so-called Nationalism." (The Trail of the Serpent, Miss Stoddard, pp. 181-182).
"The final consummation will be when all this luminous substance has been separated from matter; the evil fire will then be freed from the caverns; the angel upholding the earth will let it fall in flames, and the whole mass will be relegated to Outer Darkness. Those who have failed to free themselves in time will be made guardians of the devils, keeping them from again bringing matter into the kingdom of Light. Such is the marvelous fable under which lies the nature-worship of ancient and modern Magnetism, known today as Illuminism, often called Christianity! as, for example, Anthroposophy or Steinerism, with its two opposing forces Lucifer and Ahriman, light and matter, and its solar and illuminising Christ. And the redemption consists with them of a physical and gnostic process of freeing, by means of unused sex-force, the element of light from matter or the body, and uniting it with the universal magnetic agent without, more often linking one mind with another in a magnetic chain, the weaker dominated by the more powerful, producing a world-inundation of communications from so- called 'Sages and Prophets,' destructive both to Christianity and Western civilization." (The Trail of the Serpent, Miss Stoddard, p. 33)
"The new State is an authoritative State guided and limited by the principles of Christian justice, conformable to the historical and spiritual traditions of the country. The openly anti-religious and anti-Christian character of Freemasonry was, therefore, contrary to the spiritual and moral bases of the new State...It subjects its initiates to a rigid discipline, the aims and interests of which are opposed to those of the nation. The State, charged with the direction and well-being of the country, constantly struck up against mysterious obstacles difficult to surmount, which hindered the progress of national affairs. Freemasonry thus formed a State within a State, a strong occult State behind the feeble apparent State, which reduced the latter to a purely superficial role. The new Portuguese State is a strong State which cannot admit a subterranean authority contrary to its own. The hierarchic complexity of Freemasonry indicates that Freemasonry has hidden and complicated plans, aiming at international ends which override those of the National State. Freemasonry thus leads to a great international diplomatic occult action directed probably by a foreign head. Such a submission to foreign international direction is contrary to the patriotic sentiment of the country. Apart from that, the secret which Freemasonry imposes so rigorously upon its adepts allows it to be presumed that what they hide so well is neither insignificant nor beneficial..." (M. Cabral, summing up the motives which led to the passing of the law against Freemasonry, as quoted in The Trail of the Serpent, Miss Stoddard, p. 153).
"For centuries there have existed certain esoteric schools of mystical philosophy originating apparently in several Oriental currents of thought meeting in the Levant, Egypt, and the nearer East. We find in these schools elements of Buddhism, Zoroastrianism and Egyptian occultism mingled with Grecian mysteries, Jewish Cabalism, and fragments of ancient Syrian cults. Out of the hotch-potch of Oriental philosophy, magic, and mythology arose in the earlier centuries of the Christian era numerous Gnostic sects, and after the rise of Mohammedanism, several heretical sects among the followers of Islam, such as the Ismaelites, Durses, and Assassins, which found their inspiration in the House of Wisdom in Cairo. To the same sources may be traced the ideas that inspired such political-religious movements of the Middle Ages as those of the Illuminati, Albgenses, Cathari, Waldenses, Troubadours, Anabaptists, and Lollards. To the same inspirations must be assigned the rise of early secret societies. The Templars are said to have been initiated by the Assassins into anti-Christian and subversive mysteries, and we find similar traces of an old and occult origin in the Alchemists, the Rosicrucians, and the later mystical cults of the Swedenborgian is a familiar example." (The Anatomy of Revolution, by G.G. better known as 'Dargon,' author of The Nameless order, published by The Patriot, October 922).
