Higher degrees?

Please note: 

The rituals for the Masonic first three degrees are pretty much standardised throughout the world, but within the set framework there are minor differences from area to area. For instance in Ireland it is more common not to kiss the Bible after each ritual but to raise the right hand as the swearing takes place. In Ireland the hoodwink is usually on for the 1st degree only. In some places the rope is always round the neck rather than changing for each degree. These are minor variations and it is too complicated to include them all in notes.

Introduction for understanding
    (back to contents list)

The candidate is told to remove his jacket or waistcoat, his tie, and if detachable, his collar.
He is asked to set aside all metal items such as his watch, cufflinks, money, keys etc.

His shirt is unbuttoned to the waist to bare his left breast. His right sleeve is rolled up above the elbow and his left trouser leg is rolled up above the knee - whether it be his own trousers or pyjama trousers.

He puts on a slipper with no heel in it. He is now dressed in ‘pauper’s clothing’.

He is blindfolded, either with a bag placed over his head, or with a proper blindfold,
blue in colour. This is called a ‘hoodwink’.

A noose is placed around his neck with the end hanging down his back.
This is called a ‘cable tow’ rope.

He then waits in an ante room next to the lodge room and waits to hear three knocks coming from inside the lodge room. He hears these knocks being returned by the Tyler who prepared him.

Everything is now acknowledged to be ‘properly tyled’, and the ritual can begin.

The lodge door is opened and the inner guard asks who it is that the Tyler has with him.

The Tyler answers, 

“a poor candidate in a state of darkness..of his own free will
and accord, properly prepared, humbly soliciting to be admitted to the mysteries and privileges of Freemasonry”

The inner guard tells the candidate that he will obtain these privileges with the
‘help of God’

And so the candidate, indeed of his own free will, enters a temple which he is told in the ritual ‘is a true representation of King Solomon’s temple’.

A temple it is indeed, with an altar, with a chaplain, with an open Bible, (or the ‘holy book’ of whichever country the temple is in) with hymns, and with the name of ‘God’ being invoked during the proceedings.

What the candidate is not told, is that while Solomon’s temple faced west, as per God’s detailed instruction, this temple faces east, towards the sun.

He is not told that the black and white floor of the temple symbolizes the equal authority of Lucifer and Adonai (Jesus) - with Lucifer being the white square.1

He is not told that the pentagram in the centre of the floor is one of the two most occultic symbols in witchcraft.

Nor is he told that the
oath he takes after kissing the open Bible through a square and compass to seal the ritual is found nowhere else but in witchcraft ritual.

When he joins he is deliberately misled.

Only should he rise to the very top of Freemasonry, and become an ‘adept’ or ‘sage’ one of the Masonic ‘elect’, will he be told the truth.

Freemasonry’s Universal pontiff of Freemasonry, the late Commander Albert Pike 33rd degree (held in such high regard that he is buried within the walls of a 33rd degree temple) on pages 104,105 &819 of his Masonic book ‘Morals and Dogma’ says..

“Masonry, like all the religions, all the mysteries, Hermericism and alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the adepts and sages, or the elect, and uses false explanations and misrepresentations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve to be misled, to conceal the truth which it calls light, from them and to draw them away from it. The blue degrees (the first three degrees) are but the outer courts or portico of the temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the initiate, but he is intentionally misled by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them, but it is intended that he shall imagine he understands them

And so the candidate begins a journey through a variety of degrees with different rituals, oaths curses and regalia. A veritable spider’s web that ritually desecrates in a short time, virtually every part of his body - designed by God to be a temple of the Holy Spirit.

This bowing of the knee in another temple to another god is not without real consequences. For the candidate, and then also for the seed that emerges from within his body, even on to the third and fourth generation.

It is a spiritual principle spoken of again and again in scripture.

The answer, and the only answer, is in the finished work of Jesus at Calvary.

Positionally, the land of Canaan, a land flowing with milk and honey, was the land that belonged to the Children of Israel. It was a free gift to them.

As far as God was concerned, that land was theirs.

In experience however, they then had to make it theirs by evicting the enemies that were there before they were given the land. The first generation never tasted the milk and honey.

The enemy frightened them, even though God had given them the land, had commanded them to evict the enemy, and had assured them He would be with them every step of the way as they engaged in the eviction battles.

Sadly, they remained, lived and finally died, so near and yet so far away from their rich inheritance.

Likewise, in position, a Christian is forgiven from all his sin, past, present and future. Christ’s work was the finished work. The complete sacrifice for all time.

Yet, in actual experience, and from within the safety of that wonderful position of total forgiveness John the beloved writes to the church of the day ..

“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness”.

The born again Christian’s inheritance is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. That and much more.

But areas of unconfessed sin leave provide the moral darkness which the powers of darkness are confined to and recognize as their territory. 2

A failure to understand how to bring our experience into line with our position has left us with a substantial proportion of the church that - as any person called to prayer ministry will confirm - still struggle with many severe physical, emotional, mental and spiritual problems - all the while pretending they do not exist because their theology tells them that such spiritual problems cannot exist.

The inheritance of life, and life abundantly is ours in position.
In reality, many have almost lost hope of such an inheritance outside of Heaven.

The spiritual enemies who were given rights by us and our fathers or forefathers long before we came to Jesus, still regard it as their land until we rise up in our rightful authority and remove their rights and evict them and ‘take the promised land allotted to us’.

Nearly a quarter of all Jesus’ ministry involved setting people free from evil spirits that held them into a variety of bondages.

If simply believing in Him alone achieved that full liberty then they would not have needed Jesus to exercise such a ministry of deliverance.

Mary Magdalene was a believer and yet He needed to cast 7 spirits out of her to enable her to have her full measure of liberty. Why would He do that if her salvation alone would have instantly and silently achieved the same purpose?

The ‘daughter of Abraham’ was a believer whom Satan held into bondage with a crippling condition for 18 years - until Jesus loosed her from the spirit of infirmity.

If the only purpose of this ministry was to be but a demonstration of His authority over the kingdom of darkness then He could have demonstrated His authority over non believers or nor receivers - like the Pharisees and Sadducees - with great effect.

Deliverance, Jesus told to the Syrian Phoenician woman is ‘the bread of the children’3 .

The liberty is ours by inheritance and also ours in experience when we exercise our authority in Christ. The enemies in place could never be shifted prior to salvation. After salvation they must leave when their rights have been removed. Praise God!!

Freemasonry is one such enemy to be dealt with. Oaths and curses taken have never been renounced. Regalia accepted and worn has never been rejected.

And so Masonic spirits hold on to their ‘legal right to that spiritual portion of land.

Freemasonry has not caused every problem - but is has undoubtedly been at the spiritual root of many.

This simple ministry aid paper is not a ‘formula’ but merely a framework series of prayers that have been used in ministry for several years to bring release from Masonic bondage to many people.

Freemasonry is like a massive maze. From country to country the words and ritual vary somewhat. It doesn’t matter.

It is always the same antichrist kingdom putting on the same chains. The same antichrist kingdom that forbids the Name of Jesus from being mentioned in its temples. 

The same antichrist kingdom that allows scripture to be used as long as the Name of Jesus is omitted.

And this antichrist kingdom clings to its legal rights until the words we and our Fathers and perhaps their Father’s freely gave to that kingdom are renounced.

This paper is a guide to doing just that.

Jesus commanded His disciples to preach the good news, heal the sick, cast out demons, and raise the dead 4 . Then He told them to make more disciples teaching them also to obey everything that He had commanded them to do 5 .

You can’t cast spirits out of non believers because 7 more will come back and occupy the territory vacated and the state of the person will be worse than before. 6

That’s why deliverance is part of discipleship, and why deliverance is truly the bread of the children of God.

Jesus summed it up when He said,

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I have come that they may have life and have it to the full”.
John 10:10

It is important to take the ‘sword of the Spirit’ and separate each individual stream and to loose the counsellee from the ruling spirits which may be operating at each point indicated.

Cut all ungodly soul ties with ‘brother masons’ In other words, ensure that there are no spiritual ‘roads’ left open for spirits to draw strength from.

Higher degrees?    (back to contents list)

There are 30 more degrees should a candidate proceed further in the Scottish rite form of Freemasonry and 10 more should he proceed further in the York Rite form of Freemasonry.

If it is known that there are higher degrees involved, and those degrees are known, we recommend the workbook produced by Freedom Ministries International, written by Derek Roberts and available from their web site.
