The Birth of Freemasonry

Solomons Temple2

Solomon’s Temple

When we look into the history of the Freemasons, one has to ask, how far back does there history go, and how they came into existence.  Their history goes back some 3,000 years; their history comes from the writing’s of Chronicler’s and the Bible.

Solomon’s Temple was built by King Solomon, King Hiram and Hiram Abiff, between 960-953BC, using Phoenician craftsmen.  The inner walls were lined with gold, and marble blocks and fine emeralds adorned the temple.

Freemason lodge rooms are based on the designs of Solomon’s Temple.

Shishak, the King of Egypt, attacked and ransacked Solomon’s Temple, in the early years of Reheboam’s reign, as King of Israel.  In 586BC King Nebuchadnezzar led Babylonian forces, in the total destruction of the temple.  The Hebrew people were taken to Babylon, to start a new chapter in their lives as slaves.  In 536BC, Zerubbabel and his people built the second temple, which was completed by 515BC.

Emperor Diocletian executes the stonemasons Claudius, Castorius, Sempornians, Nicostratus and Simplicius their apprentice for refusal to carve their pagan God; Aescuplapius.  Some years later, Severus, Severianus, Carpophorus and Victorius were executed for refusal to pay homage to the pagan God; Aescuplapius… and in 290Bs these four became known as the “Four Crowned Martyrs” patron Saints of the Operative Craft.

An interesting thought… “Freemasonry” is also referred to as the “Craft.”

At the time of Christ, there existed in Palestine three religious sects; Essenes, Pharisees and Sadducees.

The Essenes, observed strict rules with a high moral code, and a secret ceremony of initiation, with similarities to that of the craft.  Historians have put forward, that Jesus Christ was a member of the Essenes.

Persian rule of the area, gave way to Greek rule, then Roman.  Herod the Great, ruler of Israel, came under Roman rule from 47BC.  In 20BC, the second temple was enlarged with courts and walls, taking eighty-three years to complete.

The Jews revolted against the Romans in 70AD, and the Roman General; Titus (Caesar) besieged the city of Jerusalem.  That very same year, the second temple was destroyed by fire.

Upon the fall of the Roman Empire, many stonemasons migrated to the island of Como, to preserve their art.  They later emerged as the Comocine Builders who constructed many Cathedrals of the middle ages.

In 691, a shrine was built on the site; “Dome of the Rock.”  By 715AD the Al-Aqsa mosque was built alongside, and two earthquakes later destroyed, and rebuilt by 1035.

Prince Edwin son of King Athelstan of the House of Wessex, called and presided over a meeting of Masons at York in 926AD.

In the year 1118, the Knights Templar were formed at the site of the old Solomon’s Temple, by the first Grand Master of the Order; Hugues de Payens.  Jacques de Molay, the last Grand Master was burnt at the stake on trumped up charges of heresy in 1314.

An Act, “The Statute of Labourers” is passed in 1350, regulating workmans wages.  The words “Mason and Freestone” appear in its writings.

In 1360, the Crown calls for 568 Masons to attend Windsor Castle, to undertake building work.

In 1370, The York Minster Mason’s Ordinance is passed.  It is written in Middle English and contains the words “Mason” and “Masoun.”

In 1375 the Masons Company of London is represented at the Court of Common Council.  In 1376 the Freemason and Mason Company of London comes into existence, as a craft Guild.  The first known use of the word “Freemason” is recorded in the City of London Book dated 9th August.  The word is later stricken off and replaced with the word; Mason.

In 1429 “Masons of the Lodge” is mentioned in the records of Canterbury Cathedral.

In 1463 the Worshipful Company of Masons of the City of London builds its first meeting house.

In 1471 Robert Stowell is appointed Master of Masons at Westminster Abbey.

In 1487 the word “Freemason” appears for the first time in the Statues of England.

In 1491 a municipal law is passed at St.Giles in Edinburgh, establishing the conditions of employment of Master Masons and co-workers.

In 1584 William Schaw, became Master of the Works in Scotland, and went on to issue two sets of rules; regulating the Masons of Scotland in 1598, and giving the Lodge of Kilwinning supervisory powers over Lodges of West Scotland in 1599.  It used the term “Fellow of the Craft.”

Sir Robert Moray, a Scot by birth, in the employ of the French, was born in 1609 and educated at St.Andrews University.  He served with the Scots Guards of Louis XIII in 1633, and acted as a spy for Cardinal Richelieu.

In 1638 Richelieu promoted Robert Moray to Lieutenant-Colonel in Louis elite Scots Guards and dispatched him to Scotland.  His orders were to recruit Scots, and he chose to assist fellow Scots in their dispute against Charles and England.

In 1640, Sir Robert Moray was made a Scottish Mason, and on the 20trh May 1641 initiated into Freemasonry whilst garrisoned in Newcastle.

Sir Robert Moray, he who was in the employ of the French, a military man at heart, had another side to him.  He was one of the original founders of the Royal Society in 1660, and its first president.

In 1617 Ellis Ashmole was born at Litchfield in England.  A famous historian, who was iniated as an English Mason on the 16th October 1646, and went on to create the Ashmolean Museum at Oxford.

In 1656 John Aubrey began writing “A Natural History of Wiltshire” in which he states that the fraternity of Free-Masons are known to one another by certain signs and watch words.

Secret Societies: Birth of Illuminati

illuninati-symbol

The creation of the Illuminati, first came to light, in the run up to the French Revolution of July 1789, yet their history goes way back, to the time of King David in Egypt.

The symbol of the Hexagram, is one we associate with Illuminists.  Solomon the son of King David, worshipped Ashtoreth (Star, also known as Astarte).

Solomon built altars to his god Star (Astarte aka Ashtoreth).  The god Saturn is associated with Star.  History tells us that the City of Rome, was originally referred to as Saturnia or City of Saturn.

Many of the rituals of Saturn, are retained by the Roman Catholic Church, and play a part in their forms of worship.  Saturn is Lucifer, and associated with evil, and played a major role in the religion of Mithra and Druidism.

In 1128, the Order of the Knights Templar was created by the Prieure de Sion, under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Church to offer protection to pilgrims following the First Crusade.

The Prieure claim they be the guardians of the Holy Grail, which represents the royal blood of Jesus, being heir to the throne in the Temple at Jerusalem.

In 1513, Sir William Sinclair died, he who introduced Enochian Magick to Scotland.  Which led to the creation of Scotland’s Illuminatism and the Watchtower Society.

Two popular phrases amongst Satanists, who used Magick was Millennial Dawn and Golden Age, also referred to as New Age, the title of the Masons magazine.

In 1536 John Calvin penned the “Institutes of the Christian Religion” which he dedicated to the King of France.  Calvin was so hated by the Jesuits, he was driven into exile from France, residing in Geneva, where he became Governor.

In 1581, John Dee of Queen Elizabeth I’s court and Edward Kelley researched contact with spiritual , which they conveyed in the Enochian language.  Dee took his research further with the Enochian system of magick, which in later years was further develoed by magicians.

One Aleister Crowley claimed to be the reincarnation of Edward Kelley.

In the early part of the 1590’s, Sir Francis Bacon, detailed his plans for the colonisation of North America.  He of the Rosicrucian Society, who went on to establish the secret society; Knights of the Helmet.

According to the writings of George V Tudhope (Masonic Author), he credits Francis Bacon with the creation of modern freemasonry.

Occult activities undertaken by our Masonic forefather’s were following a vision laid out by Francis Bacon, who claimed he was being led by his “Guiding Spirit.”

In 1613, Prieure de Sion showed interest in Scotland, where Knight’s Templar had thrived against the backdrop of the Pope, who had outlawed the order.  Scotland had become a hotbed of occult activity.

Merovingian descendants and Prieure de Sion guarded the sacred blood line, of the House of David, that had been created by Satan in Southern France.  It wove its bloodline into Europe’s royal households, and are known to be Jewish in origin.

In 1630, the Phelps family associated by the Taft family (President Taft) created the “Skull & Bones Order” in America.

In 1658, William Patterson was born in Scotland, and aged seventeen went to Bristol, and then the Bahamas to make his fortune.  He made a name for himself, becoming a successful merchant, and some of his ventures involved sailing with the pirate; Morgan.  He invested his fortune in banking, and in 1694 created the “Bank of England” becoming its director.

In 1688, the Illuminati had its financial headquarters based in Amsterdam.  That same year William of Orange deposed King James II of England, forcing his abdication.  After William’s victory, the Illuminati moved its headquarters to London.

Somerled; King of Argyll, he of Norse-Gaelic descent.  A powerful figure in Scottish politics, who rarely recognized the authority of King Malcolm IV of Scotland.

Somerled’s son was Ranald, and his son was Donald, who became Argus Mor McDonald, whose own grandson married MacRorie, becoming “Lordship of the Isles.”

The MacDonalds were chiefs, and many families sought their protection, even to the point of taking their name.  It is highly likely that some Knights Templar bloodlines, ended up as McDonalds.  In 1692 the McDonald’s of Glencoe were massacred by the English, rooting out Francis Stewart sympathizers.

Francis Stewart; Grand Master of witchcraft covens in the Glencoe area was supported by the McDonalds.  These McDonalds also participated in acts of piracy in the 17th century.

Sarah Aynn Collins born into a life of witchcraft and satanic practices in 1730.  She travelled to Scotland, to learn more of the occult, becoming a leader of the oldest form of Wicca; The Elven Path.

Following the American Revolution, returned home to the United States, forming the Covendom of Wicca, and was stabbed to death in Boston.

Samuel DuPont married Anne Alexandrine Montechanin in Paris, France of 1737.  Anne a descendant of a Burgundy noble family, was a medium within the spirit world, thus Anne’s bloodline gave the DuPont’s their occult powers.  Their son; Pierre Samuel Dupont followed the family tradition, receiving teaching’s from his mother, becoming a medium.

Pierre Samuel Dupont was trained as a watchmaker, following his mother’s death in 1753, when he was sixteen.  He attracted the interest of the Illuminati, for his abilities in writing articles on economic and political subjects.  Pierre went on to join the Freemasons.  As part of the Inner Satanic hierarchy, and as such was protected at all costs, by powerful Freemasons during the French Revolution.

In 1767, Victor Marie DuPont was born to parents Pierre Samuel Dupont and Made le Dee, with the Marquis de Mirabeau as his godfather.  Victor was an aide-de-camp to Illuminatus Lafayette, and some time after arriving in the United States in 1800, got involved in Freemasonry.

Necker and Lafayette loaned Pierre Samuel Dupont, money to form a communist society through business interests.  On the 1st January 1769 Pierre replaced the existing management of “Physiocrats Journal.”  With this he became a key leader in France, calling for a “New Order” he believed in a philosopher styled king, an idea, a belief put forward by Greek Philosopher; Plato.

In 1776, Benjamin franklin an active Mason was appointed by the then government of the United States to negotiate peace with Great Britain.  On the 4th July 1776, a date that will always be remembered in American history; the signing of the “Declaration of Independence.”  Franklin was instrumental in the writing of the document, and one of the 56 who signed the document, creating the U.S. Constitution.

Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson were members of the Collins family of Satanists, who were known as the “Hell Fire Club.”  This Satanic group practiced occult rituals.

In the latter part of 1776. The Illuminati formed a committee; “The Biblical Destruction Group” and by 1826 they had disbanded.

In 1777, Lafayette a French noble took up arms against the British in the American Revolution, fighting alongside American comrades.  The American commander; George Washington, a Mason and Illuminati appointed him to the post of Major General.
