    Freemasonry and the Occult

    TITLE: FORMER ILLUMINIST WITCH REVEALS STRONG WITCHCRAFT TIE TO FREEMASONRY

    33rd degree double eagle

    Subtitle: Doc Marquis, former Illuminist witch, answers the Top 25 Questions he receives during his seminars on Illuminati, Witchcraft, and Freemasonry. We reprint these questions for you.

    Most of the article on Freemasonry below has been taken from Masonic books that have been published by Masonic Publishing Companies, and most of them were formerly very, very secret. We further have taken the Biblical admonition carefully, comparing Masonic teachings to the Holy Bible. In 1 John 4:1, we see this command to all Christians: “Beloved,believe not every spirit, but try (test) the spirits whether they are of God: because manyfalse prophets are gone out into the world.” Thus we see that any religious teaching that does not conform to Scripture is from a “false prophet”.

    This exercise is not an empty one, for your eternal, precious soul is at stake. Finally, remember two things about Masonry: 1) Superior Masons deliberately lie to their fellow Masons, as those Masons “deserve to be mislead”; 2) Explanations given to 95% of all Masons are wrong. Listen to this quote from a Masonic author, Carl Claudy: “Cut through the outer shell and find a meaning; cut through that meaning and find another; under it, if you dig deep enough, you may find a third, a fourth — who shall say how many teachings?” You have been lied to, as we demonstrate in our many articles. Finally, remember Albert Pike’s bold assertion in Morals & Dogma, that “Masonry is identical to the ancient Mysteries “, which means that all their teachings in all their books are precisely the same as the Ancient, Pagan, Satanic Mysteries!

    Please, we implore you, take the time to read our articles so you may finally know the Truth of Jesus Christ, the God of the Universe which Masons contemptuously call an “inferior god”, and Whom they never, ever mention in their teachings or their rituals. We fervently pray that the Holy Spirit will illumine your mind, heart, and soul with the knowledge of the true God, and only the true God, of the Holy Bible.

    Without any introduction, we reprint Doc Marquis’ “25 Top Questions About Freemasonry“. Since Marquis is a former Illuminist Witch, he brings a unique expertise and viewpoint to this entire subject. We think you will find it highly instructive, and you will have even more reason to understand that Freemasonry is Illuminized Witchcraft at its very core. Since this entire article is virtually verbatim from Marquis, we shall not put his words in quotes, and shall print them inBlack. Any comment the Cutting Edge makes will be in Blue print; also, since Marquis’ passout contained no symbols or pictures, all symbols within the article have been added by the Cutting Edge. For any of you interested in contacting Doc Marquis directly, we have printed all that information at the end of this article.

    Please note that almost all of Marquis’ answers are taken verbatim from Masonic author’s own writings. We shall use quotes when quoting a Masonic author.

    25 TOP QUESTIONS ABOUT FREEMASONRY

    1) Is Freemasonry A Christian Organization?

    “If Freemasonry were simply a Christian institution, the Jew and the Moslem, the Brahman and Buddhist, could not conscientiously partake of its illumination.” [Albert Mackey, Encyclopedia of Freemasonry“, p. 182, 33rd Degree Mason.] We find it highly instructive that Mackey boldly admits to Masonic Adepts that Freemasonry is NOT Christian! Of course, at the time Mackey wrote his book, it was secret, available only to Adept Masons. Had Mackey ever thought that this book would have become available to the public, he would not have been so bold.

    2) Is Freemasonry Christian?

    “Freemasonry is not Christian, nor a substitute for it.” [C.F. McQuaig, My Masonic Friend, p. 1]

    Once again, we see that, by their own admission, Freemasonry is NOT Christian! The only instance where we hear that it is Christian is from the Masonic Propaganda Division, and by those poor Masons who have been deliberately deceived by their own Superiors.

    3) The King James Version of the Bible is on the altars at Masonic Lodges. Isn’t this proof that Masonry is based upon the Bible?

    “Masonry has nothing to do with the Bible; it is not founded upon the Bible, for if it were, it would not be Masonry, it would be something else.” [TheDigest of Masonic Law, p. 207-209]Now we see a Masonic author admitting that Freemasonry is NOT based upon the Bible! Therefore, not only is Masonry NOT Christian, it is even NOT Judeo-Christian! These revelations just keep on coming, do they not?

    4) But what about God?

    “Humanity, ‘in-toto’, then, is the only Personal God.” [J.D. Buck, Mystic Masonry , p. 136, 32nd Degree] As any good occultist, Freemasonry believes the lie Satan told Eve in the Garden of Eden, “You shall be as God”. We cover this belief in free13 ; if you have not read this article yet, we suggest you do so for background to this article.

    5) So, then, Masonry is not based on the Bible, not its Christian principles; then, the Masonic Lodges are not teaching religion, correct?

    “Every Masonic Lodge is a temple of religion, and its teachings are instruction in religion”. [Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma , p. 213. Pike was a 33rd Degree Mason, Head of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Southern Jurisdiction] Pike’s revelation here, at the 13th Degree, that Masonry teaches religion, is a perfect example of the deliberate lying policy of Freemasonry. At the 10th Degree, Pike states that “Masonry is not a religion”. Then, at the 13th Degree, the Mason is told that this statement was false, and that Masonry IS a religion. Then, whenever a person not a Mason makes the charge that Masonry is a religion, they are then quoted Pike at the 10th Degree denying it, and are never told that Pike reverses himself at the 13th Degree to admit that Masonry IS a religion. Truly, Freemasonry is a series of long hallways of smoke and mirrors, designed to lead all but a handful of Masons astray, and to deceive 100% of all Non-Masons. No organization that engages in deliberate lying can call itself Christian.

    6) Since Masonic Lodges are religious temples, what are they searching for since they do not worship Jesus Christ?

    “Freemasonry is a search for Light. That search leads us directly back, as you see, to the Kabalah.” [Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma , p. 741, Pike was a 33rd Degree Mason, Head of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Southern Jurisdiction]

    7) But isn’t the Kabalah a religion?

    Image Preview Go to fullsize image Go to fullsize imageGo to fullsize imageGo to fullsize image

    “All truly dogmatic religions have issued from the Kabalah and return to it; everything scientific and grand in the religious dreams of the Illuminati … all the Masonic associations owe to it their Secrets and their symbols.” [Pike, Morals and Dogma ] We wish to warn all our Jewish friends who are caught up in the revival of Kabalah study, they are believing in the very Satanic counterfeit to the Torah and other Old Testament books of the Bible that the Pharisees and Sadducees of Jesus’ day were practicing. Did you know that the major reason the Pharisees and Sadducees plotted to murder Jesus, in spite of His obvious supernatural power, was because they were practicing the witchcraft of the Kabalah? You can read the full details in two of the Cutting Edge’s former Radio Programs — CE1077, “Secret Societies Killed Jesus Christ” andCE1078, “Secret Societies Originated Unpardonable Sin, and Ramifications”. Once you read these two articles, you will understand why Jesus was so unrelenting in His pronouncements of damnation against the Pharisees, which is totally out of character of His love and compassion for ordinary sinners, even grievous sinners. Jesus knew the Pharisees and Sadducees were practicing the witchcraft that later was to become known as the Kabalah.

    8) So, then, if the Kabalah is an ancient practice found within the occult world, are the symbols, words, and other Masonic expressions found within the occult?

    “In modern witch rites, we find terms and expressions that are also used in Masonry, the Golden Dawn, and other such occult societies.” [Arnold and Patricia Crowther, The Secrets of Ancient Witchcraft, p. 22]

    Once again, we see the instance where Freemasonry is loved by all the wrong people: Witches, Satanists, Illuminists, demonically possessed New Age authors, and demonically possessed leaders of other secret societies. Since “Birds of a Feather Flock Together”, this fact is one very important and concrete evidence that Freemasonry is just as Satanic as these other organizations admit openly they are! Keep this fact in mind as you read the facts presented, below.

    9) So if Masonry is pushing the occult religions, surely many members must come from occult sources and backgrounds .

    Go to fullsize image

    They certainly do! We have listed examples, below, of known Satanists and/or Occultists who were also Freemasons in good standing. Do not be deceived by any Masonic Propaganda that says these people were “rogue Masons”; on the contrary, they were Masons in good standing throughout their lives. In fact, what these occultists who were also Masons represent are the very few Illuminated Masons who had gone all the way to the “Light”, to discover what the final great secret of Masonry truly is, i.e., dedicated Satanists working to achieve the New World Order of Antichrist.

    a) Arthur Edward Waite, occult writer and historian — In free12 and free13 , we quote Waite continuously, noting that his books are always published by a known and established Masonic publishing house.

    b) Dr. Wynn Westcott — member of the Rosicrucian Society and founding member of the occult Order of the Golden Dawn . The Order of the Golden Dawn is one of the most Satanic of secret societies, and is highly active in the establishment of the coming New World Order of Antichrist. Don’t you find it extremely “illuminating” that its founder is also a Mason?

    c) S. L. MacGregor Mathers — co-founder of the occult Order of the Golden Dawn — Thus, we see that both founders of this Satanic secret society were Freemasons.

    d) Dr. Gerard Encausse — member of the Illuminati and leader of the occult group known as ‘Martinism’. According to Albert Mackey, a 33rd Degree Mason, “The degrees of Martinism abounded in the reveries (pleasures) of the Mystics.” [Albert Mackey, Encyclopedia of Masonry”, p. 552] The “pleasures” of the Mystics is a euphemism for sex. We have already noted that Freemasonry utilizes the symbolism of sex in their circle with a dot [free13for full details]. In free07 , we also note the sexual symbolism inherent in their writings. Freemasons “worship the creature rather than the Creator” just as much as do any of the pagan groups in world history. Again, this fact is one of the reasons they insist upon absolute secrecy, rightly fearing public scrutiny.

    e) Aleister Crowley — infamous Satanist who founded the occult religion of Thelema. So debased and foul was he, that his contemporaries referred to him as ‘Mr. 666’, and his mother referred to him as ‘The Beast’ of the Book of Revelation.
    While Crowley did not found the Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.], he did control the organization for many years. The O.T.O. is an extremely Black Magick secret society, very Satanic.

    f) Dr. Theodore Reuss — Head of the occult order known as the O.T.O. (Ordo Templi Orientis).He was such a prolific occult writer that he gave Aleister Crowley the reigns of authority of the O.T.O. in London. This is an official logo of the O.T.O., taken off the web. You are looking into the black abyss of Hell in this drawing. This apparently is the entrance into Hell, with the Masonic-type columns on each side and the typically Masonic/occultic winged symbol above. Two All-seeing Eyes oversee all who enter its gates. Freemasonry is “identical with the Mysteries”, says Albert Pike; therefore, this scene of the Gates of Hell IS Freemasonry.

    g) George Pickingill — renowned master witch of 19th Century England and leader of the ‘Pinkingill coven’ .

    h) Manly P. Hall — a Rosicrucian, Masonic author, and founder of the Philosophical Research Society .Hall was world renowned as a Freemason, and one of its most prolific writers. It was he who said that Fellow Craft Masons can expect to have the “seething energies of Lucifer in your hands” once he understands the deep secrets of the Craft. His books were published by prestigious Masonic Publishing companies. Since Hall was simultaneously a Rosicrucian and a Freemason, we wish to show you theRosicrucian Cross , so you can see the terrible blasphemies of Freemasonry. Please closely observe how they have covered our precious Cross of Calvary with the deepest, most wicked, symbols of Satan! You can see four (4) upright pentagrams, representing Lucifer and covering each of the four points of the cross; then, you can see a hexagram just below the center, on the downward arm of the cross, probably designed to cast a “HEX” on our Savior’s cross! Folks, this is the true nature of Freemasonry. Masonry reveres Rosicrucianism so very highly, they have an order dedicated to it, called, “Knight of the Rosy Croix”, the 18th Degree! Once, more the true Satanic nature of Freemasonry becomes more clear.

    i) Gerald B. Gardner — founder of the modern revival of Wicca, who had a style of witchcraft named after him known as the ‘Gardnerian Style of Witchcraft’.

    j) Alex Sanders — known as the “King of all Witches” in London, he was one of the most influential witches after Gardner. He also had a style of witchcraft named after him called, “Alexanderian Witchcraft”.

    k) Eliphas Levi — one of the most occult writers of the 19th Century . Doc really understates the case here. Levi was known as “the foremost occult authority of the 19th century”. [Nuit Unlimited Imports, a New Age importer of witchcraft memorabilia] Levi created the extremely obscene image of Baphomet to represent Satan.“Levi’s drawing of Baphomet shows his emphasis on sex, for he made Baphomet as an androgynous [both male-female] figure. Satan, like Baphomet, is often pictured as a hermaphroditic deity, having a male phallus and the breasts of a woman. The winged staff between Baphomet represents the phallus … In a book on witchcraft,The Complete Book of Witchcraft and Demonology, we find a picture of Baphomet. The caption states that he is the ‘horned god of the witches, sex incarnate’. This picture … shows Baphomet making the Devil’s triad with his right hand.” [Dr. Burns, Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated ]

    Levi’s Guiding Spirit took him to levels of an understanding of witchcraft that few men in history have ever experienced. His illustrations are considered unequalled in the occult world, and he was not only contemporary with Albert Pike, he was very influential on Pike. [Arthur Edward Waite, Some Deeper Aspects of Masonic Symbolism, Kila, Montana, reprinted by Kessinger Freemasonry Publishing Co.] Arthur Waite said of Levi, “… undoubtedly one of the most distinguished of the Continental exponents of occult science which the 19th Century produced, and his writings attain an important position in the estimation of modern schools of higher magic.” [Waite, quoted in Levi’s book, The History of Magic, in Kessinger’s Catalog, attempting to influence you to buy Levi’s book]

    Albert Pike (33rd Degree Mason, Grand Commander of the Southern Jurisdiction) was, therefore, undoubtedly influenced by Levi in his views on Lucifer. We have already quoted Pike inMorals and Dogma (p. 567, 28th Degree) where he identifies Lucifer as the Light-bearer of Freemasonry, the “Light” to whom all Masons pledge to work toward. Listen to Levi talk about Lucifer. “XXXVIII: What is more absurd and more impious than to attribute the name of Lucifer to the devil, that is, to personified evil. The intellectual Lucifer is the spirit of intelligence and love; it is the paraclete [an advocate]; it is the Holy Spirit, where the physical Lucifer is the great angel of universal magnetism.” [Eliphas Levi, The Mysteries of Magic, ADigest of the Writings of Eliphas Levi]

    THE MEN AND WOMEN OF CO-MASONRY



    Most Freemasons are shocked to disbelief when they are told that women can become full-fledged Freemasons, as they have been led to believe that only men can become Masons. However, a dirty little secret is that women can become Co-Masons, joining as full-fledged members, usually along with their husbands. You can see the two symbols for Co-Masonry I have discovered, along with Elizabeth Aldworth and a general picture of women in their Masonic regalia. Co-Masonry has produced some really important leaders in the New World Order movement. Listen as Doc Marquis explains:

    Contrary to popular belief, females can, and have, become members of the Masons. In Albert Mackey’s book, Encyclopedia of Masonry, (p. 307) there is a law of Masonry that is known asThe Law of Salique . It states that females cannot become Masons; but there were, nevertheless, female members in the past. Some examples are:

    a) The honorable Mrs. Aldsworth — [pictured above] — around 1735, she received the first and second degree in Lodge #44 at Doneraile, Ireland.

    b) Mrs.. Beaton — she was a resident who received her initiation in Norfolk, England.

    c) Madam de Xaintrailles — initiated into a French Lodge during the end of the last century

    d) Elizabeth St. Leger — initiated in 1710 at the age of 17.

    e) Countess Barkoczy of Hungary , was initiated into the Hungarian Lodge of Freemasonry

    11. Like many of the male members, are there any examples in which female occultists were also Masons? Yes!

    a) Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky , founder of the occult Theosophical Society, was initiated into the Masons during the early part of last century. Once again, Marquis underplays the significance of the facts. Blavatsky was the founder of one of the most deeply Satanic secret society on earth! People who learned Satanism from her included Adolf Hitler and some of his men, and Lenin with some of his Communist leaders. Hitler, particularly, found Blavatsky’s teachings to be crucial to his Satanic doctrines, especially her treatise, Secret Doctrine. Hitler’s Holocaust occurred in large part because of Blavatsky’s teachings! Yet, here we see that she was a member of the Freemasons.

    b) Annie Besant — leader of this deeply Satanic Theosophical Society.

    c) Alice A. Bailey — Succeeding Besant as the leader of the House of Theosophy, Alice and her husband Foster [32 Degree Mason] were members of Co-Masonry. Alice founded the publishing company, Lucifer Trust, for the express purpose of printing the flood of New Age books about to come into being. After learning that too many people were objecting to the bold name of Lucifer, Alice changed the name to Lucis Trust .

    12) Assuming, then, that many Masonic members are interested in, or into, the occult, what are the true religious doctrines of the Masons?

    “That which we must say to the crowd is: ‘We worship a god, but it is the god one adores without superstition.’ To you , Sovereign Grand Instructors General [a 33rd Degree Mason], we say this … you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st, and 30th Degrees … The Masonic religion should be, by all of the initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine … Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay [God of the Holy Bible] is also God … the doctrine of Satanism is a heresy; and the true and pure philosophic religion is the belief in Lucifer, the equal of Adonay; but Lucifer, God of Light, God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of Darkness and Evil.” [Lady Queenborough, Occult Theocracy , p. 220-221, quoting a letter from Albert Pike to the 23 Supreme Councils of the World on July 14, 1889]

    Freemasonry has counter-attacked this letter, claiming it is bogus. However, they must answer the fact that this worship of Lucifer is also written in Pike’s two monumental books, Morals and Dogma, and Magnum Opus. Every thing contained in this letter is also contained in these two books, and we havethem at this office.

    Finally, history does not record that Freemasonry ever sued Lady Queenborough for libel and slander. Surely, since the letter is so damning, Freemasonry would have gone to all lengths to clear their name, even to the point of suing. Their absolute lack of such action speaks volumes as to the truth of Lady Queenborough’s claim that this letter from Pike is genuine.

    13) Now wait a minute! Are you saying that the ‘light’, for which Masonry is looking, is found with Lucifer?

    “LUCIFER, the Light-Bearer .. Is it he who bears the Light? Doubt it not!” [Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma , p. 321.; Emphasis in the original]

    14) Hold it! Isn’t Lucifer, or Satan, the black god? The evil one?

    “The true name of Satan, the Kabalists say, is Yahweh (GOD) reversed; for Satan is not a black god, but a negation of God. For Initiates, this is not a Person, but a Force …” [Albert Pike,Morals and Dogma , p. 102] Pike’s statement in the letter, quoted in paragraph 12, above, defines pure Satanism. They believe God and Lucifer are equal Gods, were competitors in the Garden of Eden, with Adonay God of the Holy Bible getting “temporary” victory. But, occultists believe that, at the Battle of Armageddon, God Lucifer will overthrow God Adonay and claim his rightful throne in Heaven. All Luciferians, including the Illuminati, believe this with their whole heart. God Adonay is the cruel God, as demonstrated by all the times He ordered the Israelites in the Old Testament to slaughter entire populations of people for the only sin of worshipping Lucifer, His adversary; Lucifer, on the other hand, has no such slaughter on His record, and is considered to be the Good God.

    Furthermore, calling Lucifer or Satan, a Force instead of a Person, Pike fulfills Biblical prophecy for Antichrist. In Daniel 11:38, God gives this prophecy. “But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces:” Neither Albert Pike, nor any other Luciferian, will ever know they just fulfilled Bible prophecy for the forces of Antichrist. However, as we point out in free01, “Teachings About Jesus Christ”, their doctrine of Jesus also fulfills the Biblical definition of Antichrist exactly.

    15) Is Satan, then, perceived to be God, the source of Light?

    “To conceive of God … the Kabala imagined Him to be a ‘most occult light’.” [Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, p. 740]

    16) Since the Masonic religion is a “front” for the religion of the Illuminati, is the Masonic “light” the “light” of the Illuminati ?

    “The result is light or illumination. Such are the Illuminati.” [J.D. Buck, 32nd Degree Mason,Mystic Masonry , Introduction, p. xl.] Once again, we see Freemasonry convicted of being Luciferian by the words of their own authors. It is really too bad that over 95% of all Freemasons do not take the time to read the very books we, and other Christian authors, have read. Such doubting Masons have not done one iota as much research as we, and yet, they choose to believe their lying Superiors.

    17) Isn’t the Masonic candidate told the full truth of Freemasonry’s religion and god when they enter the Blue Lodge, where they receive their first three degrees?

    “The Blue Degrees (the Blue Lodge degrees) are but the outer court or portico of the Temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the Initiate, but he isintentionally mislead by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them; but it is intended that he shall imagine he understand them .” [Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, p. 819; Emphasis added]

    All Freemasons need to read and re-read this very illuminating paragraph. Pike has just boldly told his 30th Degree Adepts that they are to be free tointentionally mislead lower ranking Masons. Such poor slobs are to imagine that they understand the symbols of Freemasonry! Such bold-face lying comes from the Evil One, Satan, not the Holy God of the Bible!

    18) Who, then, is allowed to know the truth, and what is really going on in Masonry?

    “We must create a super rite, which will remain unknown, to which we will call those Masons of high degree (30th and above), whom we shall select. With regards to our brothers in Masonry, these men must be pledged to the strictest secrecy. Through this supreme rite, we will govern all Freemasonry which will become the one international center, the more powerful, because its direction will be unknown.” [Letter, dated 1/22/1870, from Pike to the Head of the Order of the Illuminati, Guiseppe Mazzini]

    19) Are you saying that the “outside” of Masonry is only for “show”, and that there is something else behind it?

    “It is this which has served as the basis for our organisation of SECRET MASONRY WHICH IS NOT KNOWN TO, AND AIMS WHICH ARE NOT EVEN SO MUCH AS SUSPECTED BY, THESE … CATTLE, ATTRACTED BY US INTO THE SHOW ARMY OF MASONIC LODGES IN ORDER TO THROW DUST IN THE EYES OF THEIR FELLOWS … masonry blindly serves as a screen for us and our objects, but the plan of action of our force, even its very abiding-place,remains for the whole people an unknown mystery.” [Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, capitalization in the original, but color emphasis added]

    The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion is the most blatantly Satanic document in world history! They systematically list all the steps that are necessary to establish their New World Order and its superman, Antichrist. For the Protocols to boldly state that Freemasonry is a blind screen for the Illuminati, is damning. Once again, we see their belief, stated by Pike above, that a super rite that is totally unknown, will promote the interests of the Illuminati powerfully. Freemasonry itself is being used as a “blind screen” by the Illuminati, to bring in the New World Order.

    20) Then if Masonry is only “Show” on the outside, what are they trying to “screen” on the inside?

    “SECRET SOCIETIES — Meantime, however, until we come into our kingdom, we shall act in the contrary way: we shall create and multiply free Masonic lodges in all the countries of the world, absorb into them all who may become or who are prominent in public activity, for these lodges we shall find our principal intelligence office and means of influence. All these lodges … will be composed of our learned elders. The lodges will have their representatives who will serve to screen the above-mentioned administration of MASONRY and from whom will issue the watchword and program … The most secret plots will be known to us and will fall under our guiding hands on the very day of their conception.” [Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion , capitalization in the original]

    21) Hasn’t anyone ever tried to warn people about the Masonic/Illuminati connection and their activities before?

    Yes! Many people have tried, but few people were ever listening. All of the following warnings came from individuals who were high ranking political figures, scholars, writers, and religious leaders. These people were not “sensationalists”, nor were they “doomsday” people. They were all highly qualified, and praised, individuals of their fields.

    a) President George Washington , 1785, in a letter written to the Reverend G. W. Snyder: “Reverend, Sir, it was not my intention to doubt that the doctrine of the Illuminati — the principles of Jacobinism — had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more satisfied of this fact than I am.” Shortly before he died, President Washington was well aware that the Adam Weishaupt radical brand of Freemasonry, the Illuminati, had spread its poison to America.

    b) In 1797, Professor John Robison warned Masonic leaders that the Illuminati had infiltrated their lodges.

    c) Reverend Jebediah Morse (father of Samuel Morse) preached in 1798: “The Order (of the Illuminati) has its branches established and its emissaries at work in America.”

    d) Dr. David Pappen, President of Harvard University , on July 19, 1798, issued a warning to the graduating class and lectured them on the influence the Illuminati was having on American politics and religion.

    e) John Quincy Adams , in 1800, opposed Thomas Jefferson for the presidency and wrote three letters to Colonel William L. Stone, exposing how Jefferson was using Masonic Lodges for subversive Illuminati purposes. The information contained in those letters is credited with winning Adams the election. The letters were held in the Rittenburg Square Library, in Philadelphia.

    f) Dr. Joseph Willard, President of Harvard University , said on July 4, 1812, to the graduating class: “There is sufficient evidence that a number of societies of the Illuminati have been established in this land. They are doubtless striving to secretly undermine all our ancient institutions, civil and sacred. These societies are clearly leagued with those of the same order in Europe … We live in an alarming period. The Enemies of all order are seeking our ruin. Should infidelity generally prevail, our independence would fall, of course. Our republican government would be annihilated.”

    We live in the final time Harvard President Willard feared; the enemies of our freedoms are perilously close to achieving their plan. When qualified people like this could see the conspiracy to destroy our country and our freedoms, why do so many Americans now disbelieve?

    g) The Prime Minister of England, Sir Winston Churchill, said in 1920, three years after the Bolsheviks seized Russia: “From the days of Spartacus/Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, to those of Trotsky … this world-wide conspiracy … has been steadily growing. This conspiracy played a definitely recognizable role in the tragedy of the French Revolution . It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th century; and now, at last, this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads, and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.”

    In Seminar 2, “America Determines The Flow of History”, we spend a lot of time demonstrating that the Illuminati created Communism; further, we show the theory under which the Plan for the New World Order is operating that would necessitate the deliberate creation of Communism. However, we are shocked to hear this quote, for Winston Churchill told the world that Illuminati created Communism all the way back in 1920!

    h) Famous historian, English author Nesta Webster, in her book, World Revolution, published in the 1920’s, [p. 78], said: “Whilst these events (early stages of the French Revolution of 1789) were taking place in Europe, the New World (America) had been Illuminized. As early as 1786, a Lodge of the Order (Illuminati) had been started in Virginia, and this was followed by fourteen others in different cities.”

    i) The Report of the California Senate Investigating Committee on Education , stated in 1953: “So-called modern Communism is apparently the same hypocritical and deadly world conspiracy to destroy civilization that was founded by the Secret Order of the Illuminati in Bavaria on May 1, 1776, and that raised its hoary head in our colonies here at the critical period before the adoption of our Federal Constitution.”

    This statement is unbelievable, not for its content, but for its source — the California Senate on Education! I am constantly amazed at how the knowledge of one generation can be buried by succeeding generations. Truly, every generation must earn its own freedoms.

    22) When did the Masons become a part of the Illuminati?

    “On July 16, 1782, at the infamous Congress of Wilhelmsbad, near the city of Hanau in Hesse-Cassel. It was initiated by Ferdinand, Duke of Brunswick, Grand Master of the Order of Strict Observance.” [Albert Mackey, Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, p. 1006.

    23) What happened at this meeting?

    Dr. Adam Weishaupt, and his right-hand man, Baron Adolf Von Knigge (both of whom were Masons at the time), attended the Congress of Wilhelmsbad; they had met with the representatives from the 23 Supreme Councils of the Masonic world and convinced them, after 30 sessions, to follow the Illuminati’s 7-part Plan to the Creation of a New World Order.

    24) How did they do this?

    At the end of the 30 council meetings, the representatives of the Masonic world signed a blood contract, vowing that they would follow the Illuminati’s 7-part Plan to the Creation of a New World Order.

    25) Don’t Any of the Masons know about these facts?

    For the most part, no. About 95% of all Masons haven’t a clue as to what is really going on in their own lodges. Only 30th Degree Masons and above may be allowed to know these secrets. Of those Masons who are 30th and above, only 5% of them know the full truth, because they have already been initiated into the Illuminati. Most of the time, an Illuminist will enter into the ranks of Masonry simply to continue the infiltration process. Eventually, this Illuminist will become one of the high ranking Masons and will, therefore, be able to better control the Masonic world because of his degree and power.

    If you are part of the 95+ of all Freemasons who are doomed to remain in the dark as to the true nature of your Lodge, you now have been exposed to the truth. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.

    If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.

    If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.

    We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order — Kingdom of Antichrist — in their daily news.

    Pope Benedict XVI holds up the host as he celebrates a mass in St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican Jan. 1, 2011. Pope Benedict XVI urged Christians to remain strong in the face of intolerance and violence in a New Year's appeal Saturday that came hours after a bomb blast outside an Egyptian church killed 21 people as worshippers left Mass. The pope condemned a widening campaign against Christians in the Middle East in his homily at St. Peter's Basilica, echoing comments last month in which he called a lack of religious freedom a threat to world security.
    VATICAN CITY Pope Benedict XVI urged Christians to remain strong in the face of intolerance and violence in a New Year’s appeal Saturday that came hours after a bomb blast outside an Egyptian church killed 21 people as worshippers left Mass.

    From Sabbath to Sunday Re-examine

    The Sabbath was given to man on the 7th day of creation week.. It was the first day that Adam and Eve saw. They Worship the Creator on they day that God Blessed, and made Holy. The 7th day Sabbath is all mankind.

    God knew that man will forget about His Sabbath that is why He said remember..Before the children of Israel was given the Ten Commandment on MT. Sinai, they knew about Gods Sabbath. Before there was an Israel or Hebrew, or Egyptian, or Syrian or any nation, there was the 7th day Sabbath.
    “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” “And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it.” Genesis 1:1;2:2, 3.

    Go to fullsize image

    God made the Sabbath at the time of Creation, after He made the world and everything in it. God rested on the Sabbath and blessed and sanctified it (set it apart for a holy use).
    “And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:” Mark 2:27

    The Sabbath and the family were alike instituted in Eden, and in God’s purpose they are perpetually linked together. On this day more than on any other, it is possible for us to live the life of Eden. It was God’s plan for the members of the family to be associated in work and study, in worship and recreation, the father as priest of his household, and both father and mother as teachers and companions of their children. But the results of sin, having changed the conditions of life, to a great degree prevent this association. Often the father hardly sees the faces of his children throughout the week. He is almost wholly deprived of opportunity for companionship or instruction. But God’s love has set a limit to the demands of toil. Over the Sabbath He places His merciful hand. In His own day He preserves for the family opportunity for communion with Him, with nature, and with one another.

    The Sabbath is a sign of creative and redeeming power; it points to God as the source of life and knowledge; it recalls man’s primeval glory, and thus witnesses to God’s purpose to re-create us in His own image. The Sabbath of the Lord bears His name and seal. “It is a sign,” He says, “between Me and you; . . . that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.” because “in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.” Exodus 31:13; 20:11.

    The Sabbath is the day above all others when we should acquaint ourselves with God through His works. In the minds of the children the very thought of the Sabbath should be bound up with the beauty of natural things. Happy is the family who can go to the place of worship on the Sabbath as Jesus and His disciples went to the synagogue–across the fields, along the shores of the lake, or through the groves. Happy the father and mother who can teach their children God’s written word with illustrations from the open pages of the book of nature; who can gather under the green trees, in the fresh, pure air, to study the word and to sing the praise of the Father above. By such associations parents may bind their children to their hearts, and thus to God, by ties that can never be broken..

    Mark 7:7 said ” in vain do they worship Me teaching for doctrine the commandments of man”. Yes beloved, the worship of many is in vain because they worship God according to tradition and the commandment of man.. In other words they worship the way the man of sin (Lucifer)want them to worship. They worship the Sun God or Baal on the first day of the week..(Sunday)Lucifer is using religious leaders to champion his cause of getting Gods people to forget the true day of worship (7Th day) and worship on the wrong day..Many books have been written, organizations such as the Lords Day Alliance have been formed, and church doctrines forged, sermons preached, to perpetrate the hoax of Sunday being the Sabbath. Pope Benedict XVI at the world youth day celebration in Germany told the people of his commitment to reinstating the active observance of the Roman Catholic Church’s chief icon: Sunday. He knows that to popularize religion in Europe, he has to reintroduce a means of promoting what marketers call brand loyalty. The most historic brand the pope can offer to bond the people together is the ancient day of worship, fashionable since Babylon, the old day of the sun—Sunday. Hence his promotion of that old Roman brand in his recent addresses. Look at the official Catholic document
    Pope Benedict XVI, call himself the Shepherd of Truth. But is he?
    Notable quotations from Pope Benedict XVI and official teachings of the Roman Catholic Church
    “FERTILE FOUNDATION”
    Sunday remains the fertile foundation and … the fundamental nucleus of the liturgical year which originated in Christ’s Resurrection, thanks to which the features of eternity were impressed on time. Thus, Sunday is … a fragment of time imbued with eternity, for its dawn saw the Crucified and Risen Christ enter victorious into eternal life.” He further stated “Finally, it is particularly urgent nowadays to remember that the day of the Lord is also a day of rest from work. It is greatly to be hoped that this fact will also be recognized by civil society, so that individuals can be permitted to refrain from work without being penalized. Christians, not without reference to the meaning of the Sabbath in the Jewish tradition, have seen in the Lord’s Day a day of rest from their daily exertions. … — Pope Benedict XVI, Apostolic Exhortation SACRAMENTUM CARITATIS, February 22, 2007. Pope Benedict XVI implies that Sunday, the first day of the week, (traditionally called Dies Domini, the Lord’s day) is the sanctified holy day of rest, “with regard to the work of creation.” This directly contradicts scripture: How can the Pope call himself the sheperd of truth when he contradicts Gods Word? Scripture never designates the first day of the week as the Lord’s day, however, God calls the sabbath “my holy day” (Isa. 58:13) and refers to Himself as Lord “of the Sabbath day” (Matt.12:8, Mk 2:28, Lk 6:5).

    Beware of the lies that the apostate popes, bishops, evangelists, preachers, and teachers will tell you concerning Sunday sacredness.. Prove all things by the Word of God. Is.8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, its because there is no light in them.

    “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” Revelation 14:6
    A special blessing is given to those who keep the Sabbath.

    “If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.” Isaiah 58:13-14

    “the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.” John 4:23

    SABBATH VS. SUNDAY: THE REST OF THE STORY

    ‘Deception’: Christians war over worship day

    Centuries-old clash continues over disputed Commandments

     

    His sentiments echo a 1998 writing by Pope John Paul II in which the pontiff referred to the origins of Sunday-keeping.

    “In the weekly reckoning of time, Sunday recalls the day of Christ’s Resurrection,” the pope stated.

    But the idea Jesus rose from the dead on a Sunday is not universal.

    The Bible is actually silent on the precise moment of resurrection. Jesus’ followers came to His tomb before dawn on the first day of the week (Sunday), but they did not witness Him coming back to life. They merely found an empty tomb.

    (Church of Christ vs. God’s True Sabbath

    Christians worshipped on the 1st Day! (Sunday)

    Adventists teach the MARK OF THE BEAST is the act of worshipping Jesus on Sunday! With the liberalizing and modernizing of the Adventist church, recent converts are either unaware, or unwilling to accept the current and historic position of their church!

    Sunday worship is not of pagan origin!

    Leo Schreven and other Seventh-day Adventists should be spanked for even quoting from these Bible trashers likeThe Paganism in Our Christianity, Arthur Weigall, because these same authors say BOTH Sunday and Sabbath are of pagan origin in the same books and articles! In fact we consider it dishonest to use Weigall’s Sunday pagan quotes, without telling the reader that Weigall says the Sabbath is also of pagan origin! Bible trashers are the only ones Sabbatarians can find who say Sunday is of pagan origin!)

    A tomb with a view

    “Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen,” is what an angel told the women. (Luke 24:5-6)


    John Pinkston, Congregation of God Seventh Day

    “Christ was already gone!” exclaims John Pinkston, a retired Air Force navigator who is founder and president of the Congregation of God Seventh Dayin Kennesaw, Ga. “So that shoots in the foot the belief that He was raised on Sunday.”

    Pinkston is typical of many Sabbath-keepers, believing Jesus was neither killed on a Friday, nor raised on Sunday. He believes Jesus was actually put to death on a Wednesday, and remained in the grave 72 hours until Saturday evening. When the women came to the tomb early Sunday, they found it empty, indicating Jesus arose prior to their arrival.

    Even the late Rev. Jerry Falwell, a Sunday-keeper and chancellor of Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., agreed with that timetable, telling WND in 2001, “I personally believe He was crucified on Wednesday evening … and rose after 6 p.m. Saturday evening.”

    Most Christians today think Jesus died on a Friday and rose on Sunday. They point to Scriptures indicating a Sabbath day followed Jesus’ execution. But Sabbath-keepers claim it was not the weekly Sabbath of Saturday approaching. Rather, they say it was an annual Sabbath, a “high” holy day in the Hebrew calendar known as the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which supposedly occurred on a Thursday the week Jesus was killed. The Gospel of John mentions that Sabbath was the annual type.

    “The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) … .” (John 19:31)

    In other words, Sabbatarians say there was more than one day of rest that week. Their timeline has Jesus slain on Wednesday – the day before the “high day” annual Sabbath on Thursday. They believe Jesus was in the grave for a full three days and three nights, finally arising Saturday evening, the second Sabbath of the week.

    The mention of “three days and three nights” is important for many, as Jesus used that phrase to prove His divine identity:

    “For as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish for three days and three nights, so I, the Son of Man, will be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights.” (Matthew 12:40, New Living Translation)

    There’s disagreement if that phrase means a full three days and three nights – 72 hours – or merely parts of three days and three nights, leading many to stick with the Friday-evening-to-Sunday-morning timeline.

    The last shall be first?

    Beyond the resurrection issue, there are several Bible references to “the first day of the week,” none of which are clear on the Sabbath issue.


    Prof. Margaret M. Mitchell

    “The New Testament evidence is not conclusive, and nowhere ‘ordains’ or instructs [Sunday-keeping],” said Margaret M. Mitchell, professor of New Testament and Early Christian Literature at the University of Chicago Divinity School.

    Mitchell says the “evidence is, historically speaking, tantalizing but not absolutely clear.”

    She notes the apostle Paul, for instance, in 1 Corinthians 16:2, “calls on the Corinthians to treasure up on the first day of the week.”

    “He does not explicitly say there whether the envisioned context is a gathering of the assembly, or if this refers to what people do in their own homes,” Mitchell said.

    Another mention of the first day is in Acts 20:7, as Paul is shown breaking bread with fellow believers in ancient Troas, a peninsula in modern-day Turkey: “And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them … .”

    Mitchell told WND: “This text appears to show a particular Sunday eucharistic gathering, but it does not tell us if this replaced the Sabbath observance or stood alongside it, [i.e., people observed both].”

    Interestingly, while most Bible versions use the phrase “first day of the week” in Acts 20:7, a 1990 word-for-word translation of the same Scripture by Greek experts Robert K. Brown and Philip W. Comfort in the New Greek English Interlinear New Testament from Tyndale House Publishers, actually renders it as “one of the Sabbaths.”

    Their version reads: “And on one of the Sabbaths having been assembled us to break bread, Paul was lecturing them … .”

    If the Tyndale translation is accurate, it could heighten the Saturday-vs.-Sunday controversy, since this alleged evidence for Sunday worship may not have been a Sunday at all, but the usual Saturday Sabbath.

    ‘The Lord’s Day’ – or is that ‘Day of the Lord’?

    And then there’s something called “the Lord’s Day.” Though mentioned just once in the Bible, many today assume it means Sunday.

    The Scripture, written by the apostle John on the Greek island of Patmos, says, “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet.” (Revelation 1:10)
    “It’s not talking anything about Sunday,” he said. “It’s talking about the ‘Day of the Lord’ mentioned in the Old Testament. It’s prophecy about when Christ comes back. The Book of Revelation reveals the events of the ‘Day of the Lord.’ It has nothing to do with a worship day.”Some Sabbatarians like Pinkston believe the term has no connection to the first day of the week.

    Others think it is indeed a worship day, but not Sunday. They suggest “the Lord’s Day” is actually a Saturday Sabbath, noting Jesus called himself “Lord of the Sabbath” (Mark 2:28) and that God referred to the Sabbath as “my holy day.” (Isaiah 58:13)

    Thus, according to this reasoning, if any day of the week were really “the Lord’s Day,” it’s the seventh-day Sabbath, not Sunday.

    However, Prof. Bauckham in Scotland believes there’s good evidence from early Christian sources the phrase does indeed refer to Sunday.

    “John probably means that his visionary experience happened during the time when other Christians were gathered for worship,” he said.

    “The other interpretation [equating it with the ‘Day of the Lord’] doesn’t really make sense because the earlier parts of the vision are not placed temporally at the end of history. That is only approached over several chapters [into Revelation].”

    The Encyclopedia Britannica equates Sunday with “the Lord’s Day” in Christianity, stating, “The practice of Christians gathering together for worship on Sunday dates back to apostolic times, but details of the actual development of the custom are not clear.”

    The New Testament, penned within the first century, never specifically mentions a Sabbath change.

    “From a logical point of view,” says Pinkston, “if the New Testament had intended for us to start worshipping on the first day of the week, then we’d find ample evidence for it. Yet, it’s not in there.”

    One example Sabbatarians point to is when Paul is shown preaching to both Jews and Gentiles (non-Hebrews) on a Sabbath, and not Sunday. He’s then asked to preach again on the following Sabbath.

    “And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath. … And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.” (Acts 13:42-44)

    The argument is, if there were some kind of worship on the first day of the week, then Paul would have just told the people – especially those with no connection to Jewish customs – to simply come back tomorrow (Sunday) to learn more, rather than wait an entire week for the next Sabbath to arrive.

    Man of the Sabbath

    A well-known expert on the Sabbath is Dr. Samuele Bacchiocchi, a retired theology professor at Andrews University in Michigan.


    Dr. Samuele Bacchiocchi

    Bacchiocchi earned his doctorate in Church History at thePontifical Gregorian University in Rome and was awarded a gold medal by Pope Paul VI for his summa cum laude class work and dissertation, “From Sabbath to Sunday: A Historical Investigation of the Rise of Sunday Observance in Early Christianity.”

    Bacchiocchi, a Seventh-Day Adventist, believes there’s no Scriptural mandate to change or eliminate Sabbath-keeping, and he singles out the Catholic Church for its role in changing the day.

    “The Church of the capital of the empire, whose authority was already felt far and wide in the second century, appears to be the most likely birthplace of Sunday observance,” he writes.

    In the 1876 book, “The Faith of Our Fathers,” James Cardinal Gibbons, the Catholic archbishop of Baltimore, agreed the shift to Sunday was not based on the Bible, but was solely the work of the Catholic Church.

    “You may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify,” Gibbons wrote.

    Bacchiocchi also told WND: “Anti-Judaism caused the abandonment of the Sabbath, and pagan sun worship influenced the adoption of Sunday.”

    He says evidence of anti-Judaism is found in the writings of Christian leaders such asIgnatius, Barnabas and Justin in the second century. He notes these three “witnessed and participated in the process of separation from Judaism which led the majority of the Christians to abandon the Sabbath and adopt Sunday as the new day of worship.”

    Bacchiocchi also explains the influence of pagan sun worship provides a “plausible explanation for the Christian choice of Sunday” over the day of Saturn. Its effect wasn’t just limited to Sunday. It apparently led to the placement of Jesus’ birth in late December.

    “The adoption of the 25th of December for the celebration of Christmas is perhaps the most explicit example of sun worship’s influence on the Christian liturgical calendar,” Bacchiocchi writes. “It is a known fact that the pagan feast of the Dies Natalis Solis Invicti – the birthday of the Invincible Sun, was held on that date.”

    Christian fact, pagan Mithra

    One of the Roman names for this “Invincible Sun” god in the days of the apostles was Mithra. There are striking similarities between the ancient worship of Mithra and today’s Christianity, leading some to think early Christians adopted Sunday worship from heathen customs.


    The pagan sun god Mithra, also known as ‘the Invincible Sun’

    For instance, Mithraism’s sacred day of Sunday was said to be called “the Lord’s Day.”

    Donald Morse, a retired professor at Temple University, wrote a 1999 essay comparing the tenets of Mithraism to modern Christianity, explaining Mithra was worshipped on Sunday; was born of a virgin known as the “mother of God” on Dec. 25; was part of a holy trinity; and had a “Last Supper” with his 12 followers before his death and resurrection at Easter time near the spring equinox.

    Mithraists were also taught they had immortal souls that went to a celestial heaven or an infernal hell at death.

    “All of these religions intermingled in those days,” Morse, who is Jewish, told WND. “There’s no way to know who stole from whom.”

    On the change from Sabbath to Sunday, Morse suggested early Christian leaders including Paul felt “the best way to convert pagans was to not have them change too much. Just accept their [pagan] holidays, as long as they accepted Jesus as Messiah. They didn’t really have to do much more than that.”

    There’s no place like Rome

    As Christianity spread through the pagan Roman Empire, it was finally given official toleration in the year 312 by Emperor Constantine, who purportedly had a vision that prompted his soldiers to fight under a “symbol of Christ,” leading to a key military victory. The emperor then restored confiscated church property and even offered public funds to churches in need.


    Roman Emperor Constantine sees a symbol of Christ in the sky before the battle at Milvian Bridge outside Rome in A.D. 312

    Sunday observance received a historic boost when Constantine – himself a pagan who is said to have adopted Christianity at least nominally – established Sunday as the first day of the week in the Roman calendar and issued a mandatory order prohibiting work on that day, in honor of the sun god.

    On March 7, 321, he decreed, “On the venerable Day of the Sun, let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed.” Farmers were given an exception.

    “The importance of the actions of Constantine cannot be overstated,” says author Richard Rives in “Too Long in the Sun.” “During his reign, pagan sun worship was blended with the worship of the Creator, and officially entitled ‘Christianity.'”

    Before the end of the 4th century, Sunday observance prevailed over Saturday.

    At the Council of Laodicea in 363, the Church of Rome – today known as the Roman Catholic Church – declared: “Christians must not judaize by resting on the Sabbath, but must work on that day, rather honoring the Lord’s Day [Sunday]; and, if they can, resting then as Christians. But if any shall be found to be judaizers, let them be anathema from Christ.”

    In 380, Emperor Theodosius made Sunday-keeping Catholic Christianity the official religion of the empire, outlawing all other faiths:

    We authorize the followers of this law to assume the title Catholic Christians; but as for the others, since in our judgment they are foolish madmen, we decree that the shall be branded with the ignominious name of heretics.

    While some went along with the decrees, others apparently did not. A letter from Ambrose, the bishop of Milan, reveals differences in Sabbath practices in his own city from those in Rome. It led to the well-known proverb, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.”

    Once Sunday had the imperial power of the Roman Catholic government behind it, Saturday Sabbath-keepers became less visible, though some Sabbatarian websites havedocumented mentions of seventh-day observers through the centuries.

    For example, the Catholic Church persecuted Sabbath-keepers in the 15th century. At the Catholic Provincial Council of Bergen, Norway, in 1435, it was said:

    We are informed that some people in different districts of the kingdom, have adopted and observed Saturday-keeping.It is severely forbidden – in holy church canon – [for] one and all to observe days excepting those which the holy pope, archbishop, or the bishops command. Saturday-keeping must under no circumstances be permitted hereafter further that the church canon commands. Therefore we counsel all the friends of God throughout all Norway who want to be obedient towards the holy church to let this evil of Saturday-keeping alone; and the rest we forbid under penalty of severe church punishment to keep Saturday holy.

    The Catholic Encyclopedia even refers to Sabbath-keeping as “the superstitious observance of Saturday,” noting it was forbidden by that council.

    Coming to America

    As Christianity headed west, the earliest settlers to America included both Sunday-keepers – such as the Puritans who landed at Plymouth, Mass., in 1620 – and Sabbath-observers like the Seventh Day Baptists, whose first church was founded in Newport, R.I., in 1671.

    When the Puritan Christians used the word Sabbath, they would mean Sunday – “the Lord’s Day” – and passed rules enforcing its observance from sunset Saturday to sunset Sunday.

    Connecticut’s so-called Blue Laws of the 1650s had strict codes of conduct said to include:

    • No one shall run on the Sabbath day, or walk in his garden or elsewhere, except reverently to and from meeting.
    • No one shall travel, cook victuals, make beds, sweep house, cut hair, or shave, on the Sabbath day.
    • No one shall read Common-Prayer, keep Christmas or saints-days, make minced pies, dance, play cards, or play on any instrument of music, except the drum, trumpet, and the Jews-harp.
    • Adultery shall be punished by death.

    Instructions for colonists in New Haven, Conn., drafted in 1655 and published in London in 1656 became known as blue laws.

    In her 1909 book, “The Sabbath in Puritan New England,” historian Alice Morse Earle documented “lists of arrests and fines for walking and travelling unnecessarily on the Sabbath,” regarded here from Saturday evening to Sunday evening:

    A Maine man who was rebuked and fined for “unseemly walking” on the Lord’s Day protested that he ran to save a man from drowning. The Court made him pay his fine, but ordered that the money should be returned to him when he could prove by witnesses that he had been on that errand of mercy and duty. As late as the year 1831, in Lebanon, Conn., a lady journeying to her father’s home was arrested within sight of her father’s house for unnecessary travelling on the Sabbath; and a long and fiercely contested lawsuit was the result, and damages were finally given for false imprisonment.

    Christians observing the Sabbath on Saturday also spread throughout America, but in fewer numbers than Sunday-keepers.

    The teachings of the Seventh Day Baptists are said to be instrumental in the founding of the Seventh-day Adventist Church – which claims a membership today of 15 million – and the Church of God (Seventh Day) – which has more than 200 congregations in the U.S. and Canada and a worldwide fellowship of more than 300,000.

    Other Christians promoting Saturday rest include many offshoots of the Worldwide Church of God, such as the United Church of God, Living Church of God, Church of God International, Philadelphia Church of God , Christian Biblical Church of God andIntercontinental Church of God.

    Messianic Jews, including Dallas-based Zola Levitt Ministries, are also seventh-day proponents.

    Some Sabbatarians, such as Richard Ames of the Living Church of God, produce TV shows like “Tomorrow’s World,” asking, “Which day is the Christian Sabbath?”

    On one program, Ames points to Luke 4:16 in the Bible and says, “It was Jesus’ regular custom to worship on the Sabbath, and since that time, and centuries before, the Jewish community has very carefully documented their observance of the seventh-day Sabbath, Saturday. In other words, history demonstrates that time has not been lost, that the seven-day cycle has been accurately recorded to this day.”

    In another episode, Ames’ colleague, Roderick C. Meredith, calls Sunday observance “the most flagrant error of mainstream Christianity” and “the most obvious deception of all.”

    “Do you realize that this deception is blinding millions of people from knowing God?” asks Meredith.

    Despite such rhetoric, many Catholic and Protestant Sunday-keepers reject Sabbath-keeping on Saturday.


    Greg Laurie

    Greg Laurie, a WND columnist and senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, Calif., one of the eight largest Protestant churches in America, maintains it’s wrong for Christians to observe Saturday, claiming Jesus and the apostles never taught anyone to keep the Sabbath. He says it’s the only one of the Ten Commandments not specifically repeated in the New Testament.

    “Of all the New Testament lists of sins, ‘breaking the Sabbath’ is never mentioned,” Laurie said. “That is because it was given to the Jews, not the non-Jews.”

    Back in Florida, Sunday-keeper Roger Felipe thinks God is not overly concerned with the Sabbath issue.

    “Paul is very clear that we Christians don’t use [one particular day] as a determining factor if someone is right with God,” Felipe said.

    At the same time, though, the minister supports the idea of resting one day each week to stay on track with God.

    “Humanity has forsaken the importance of Sabbath rest,” he said. “God desires us to be renewed spiritually. We should observe a day … to be consecrated and to be devoted to God, to be renewed and refreshed. In terms of affecting the human quality of life, it would do us very well to observe a Sabbath rest.”

    Moses Laws vs. God’s Ten Commandments

    Called “the law of Moses”

    LUKE 2:22 And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord.

    ISA. 5:24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

    Called “Law contained in ordinances”

    EPH. 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace.

    Written by Moses in a book

    2 CHRON. 35:12 And they removed the burnt offerings, that they might give according to the divisions of the families of the people, to offer unto the LORD, as it is written in the book of Moses. And so did they with the oxen.

    Written by God on stone

    EXO. 31:18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone,written with the finger of God.

    Placed in the side of the ark

    DEUT. 31:26 Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the arkof the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee.

    Placed inside the ark

    EXO. 40:20 And he took andput the testimony into the ark, and set the staves on the ark, and put the mercy seat above upon the ark:

    Ended at the cross

    EPH. 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace.

    Will stand forever

    LUKE 16:17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.

    Added because of sin

    GAL. 3:19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.

    Points out sin

    ROM. 7:7 What shall we say then? is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.
    ROM. 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

    Contrary to us, against us

    COL. 2:14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.

    Not grievous

    1 JOHN 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and hiscommandments are not grievous.

    Judges no man

    COL. 2:14-16 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    Judges all men

    JAM. 2:10-12 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.

    Carnal

    HEB. 7:16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.

    Spiritual

    ROM. 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

    Made nothing perfect

    HEB. 7:19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.

    Perfect

    PSALMS 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

    DAY ONE ALLIANCE – False Religious Teachings – Beware

     

    We hope you will find information to help and encourage you in the vitally important issue of keeping the Lord’s Day – a principle laid down by God himself in creation. Sadly, in these days, too few Christians realise the importance of this issue in the health of the church and our nation at large.

     

    Today, the organisation – previously known as the Lord’s Day Observance Society – under the name of Day One Christian Ministries campaigns for Sunday to be a day of worship and rest; our day of rest is increasingly under threat as retail businesses, sports events and entertainment seek to make Sunday just another day to make money.

     

    Day One also has a very significant work in DayOne Publications as well as supporting the Daylight Christian Prison Trust. That’s why the whole organisation is now called Day One Christian Ministries.
