Albert Pike the father of modern Freemasonry

Albert Pike planned three world wars in a letter to Mazzini dated August 15, 1871, and until recently on display in the British Museum, wrote:

Albert Pike, on a plan for world conquest
"We shall unleash the Nihilists and atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirit will from that moment be without a compass (direction), anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the pure light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view, a manifestation which will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."

John Daniel
"..Thirty-third degree Freemason Albert Pike (1809-1891), the man destined to develop the Luciferian Doctrine for the Masonic hierarchy, could not accept that Lucifer and Satan were the same personality. While teaching his beliefs to a select few in the Supreme Council, Pike became the most powerful Mason in the world. Although an obscure general in the Confederate Army during the American Civil War, he was hardly inconspicuous in Freemasonry. From 1859 until his death in 1891, Pike occupied simultaneously the positions of Grand Master of the Central Directory at Washington, D.C., Grand Commander of the Supreme Council at Charleston, S.C., and Sovereign Pontiff of Universal Freemasonry. He was an honorary member of almost every Supreme Council in the world, personally receiving 130 Masonic degrees. Pike also was one of the most physically and morally repulsive individuals in American history. Weighing well over three hundred pounds, his sexual proclivity was to sit naked astride a phallic throne in the woods, accompanied by a gang of prostitutes. To these orgies he would bring one or more wagon loads of food and liquor, most of which he would consume over a period of two days until he passed into a stupor. In his adopted state of Arkansas, Pike was well known as a practitioner of Satanism, Portraits of his later years show him wearing a symbol of the Baphomet around his neck."

Albert Pike Freemasonry’s Morals and Dogma Quotes

Fellowcraft Degree
"Though Masonry is identical with the ancient Mysteries, it is so only in this qualified sense: that it presents but an imperfect image of their brilliancy, the ruins of their grandeur  ...
... Masonry, successor to the Mysteries (Babel, Mithras, Tammuz, Wicca, etc.) still follows the ancient manor of teaching.
"

"The Holy Kabbalah, or tradition of the children of Seth, was carried from Chaldea by Abraham, taught to the Egyptian priesthood by Joseph, recovered and purified by Moses, concealed under symbols in the Bible, revealed by the Savior to Saint John, and contained, entire, under hieratic figures analogous to those of all antiquity, in the Apocalypse of that Apostle."
Source: Morals and Dogma p.97

Master Mason - 3rd Degree
"The true name of Satan, the Kabbalists say, is that of Yahweh reversed; for Satan is not a black god... for the initiates this is not a Person, but a force, created for good, but which may serve for evil. It is the instrument of liberty and free will."

Source: Morals and Dogma Master Mason - 3rd Degree p. 102

Are Masonic initiates misled?
"Masonry, like all the religions, all the Mysteries, Hermeticism and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled; to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light, from them and to draw them away from it. Truth is not for those who are unworthy or unable to receive it, or would pervert it. So Masonry jealously conceals its secrets, and intentionally leads conceited interpreters astray."
Source: Morals and Dogma p.104-105

".... the literal meaning (of the Bible) is for the vulgar only."
Source: Albert Pike Digest of Morals and Dogma, p. 166

14th Degree
"What is True to the philosopher would not be truth, nor have the effect of truth, to the peasant. The religion of many must necessarily be more incorrect than that of the refined and reflected few... The truest religion would in many points, not be comprehended by the ignorant.. The doctrines of the Bible are often not clothed in the language of strict truth, but in that which was fittest to convey to a rude and ignorant people... the doctrine."
Source: Morals and Dogma 14th Degree, p. 224


"Lucifer, the Light-Bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual or selfish souls? Doubt it not!"
Source: Morals and Dogma p.321


"This doctrine of transmigration of souls obtained, as porphyry informs us, among the Persians and Magi. It was held in the East and the West and that from the remotest antiquity. Herodotus found it among the Egyptians, who made the term of the circle of migrations from one human body three thousand years. ... The Curds, the Chinese, the Kabbalists, all held the same doctrine. So Origen held, and the Bishop Synesius, the latter of whom had been initiated, and who thus prayed to God: "O Father, grant that my soul, reunited to the light, may not be plunged again into the defilements of Earth!" So the Gnostics held; and even the Disciples of Christ inquired if the man who was born blind, was not so punished for some sin that he had committed before his birth."
Source: Morals and Dogma p.399

24th Degree
"These two divinities (Sun and Moon, Osiris and Isis, etc.) were commonly symbolized by the generative parts of a man and a woman; to which in remote ages no idea of indecency was attached; the Phallus (penis) and the Cteis (vagina), emblems of generation and production, and which, as such appeared in the Mysteries (I believe Masonry is the revival of these). The Indian Lingam was the union of both, as were the boat and mast and the point within the circle; all of which expressed the same philosophical idea as to the union of the two great causes of nature, which concur, one actively and the other passively, in the generation of all beings..." (Key Masonic symbols)

"The Arabian word AL-DE-BARAN, means the foremost, or leading, star: and it could only have been so named, when it did precede, or lead, all others. The year then opened with the Sun in Taurus; and the multitude of ancient scriptures, both in Assyria and Egypt, wherein the bull appears with Lunette or crescent horns, and the disk of the Sun between them, are direct allusions to the important festival of the first new Moon of the year: and there was everywhere an annual celebration of the festival of the first new Moon, when the year opened with Sol and Luna in Taurus. The crescent and the disk combined always represent the conjunctive Sun and Moon."
Source: Morals and Dogma p.451

28th Degree
"Masonry is a search for light. That light. That search leads us back, as you see, to the Kabala. In that ancient and little understood (source book) the infinite will find the source of many doctrines; and (he) may in time come to understand the Hermetic philosophers, the Alchemists, all the Anti-papal Thinkers of the Middle Ages, and Emanuel Swedenborg."
Source: Morals and Dogma 28th Degree p. 741


"All truly dogmatic religions have issued from the Kabala and return to it; everything scientific and grand in the religious dreams of the Illuminati, Jacob Boeheme, Swedenborg, Saint Martin, and others is borrowed from the Kabala; all Masonic associations owe to it their secrets and their symbols."
Source: Morals and Dogma p. 747


"The Templars, like all other Secret Orders and Associations, had two doctrines, one concealed and reserved for the Masters, which was Johannism; the other public, which was the Roman Catholic."
Source: Morals and Dogma p. 817


"The Blue Degrees are but the outer court of portico of the Temple. Parts 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. Their true explication is reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry. The whole body of the Royal and Sacerdotal Art was hidden so carefully, centuries since, in the High Degrees..."
Source: Morals and Dogma p.819


"The end of the drama is well known, and how Jacques de Molai and his fellows perished in the flames. But before his execution, the Chief of the doomed Order organized and instituted what afterward came to be called the Occult, Hermetic, or Scottish Masonry. In the gloom of his prison, the Grand Master created four Metropolitan Lodges, at Naples for the East, at Edinburg for the West, at Stockholm for the North, and at Paris for the South. ... The initials in his name, J.B.M. found in the same order in the first 3 Degrees, are but one of the many internal and cogent proofs that such was the origin of modern Free Masonry."
Source: Morals and Dogma p.820

32nd degree of Masonry, Sublime prince of the Royal Secret:
"The Occult Science of the Ancient Magi was concealed under the shadows of the Ancient Mysteries: it was imperfectly revealed or rather disfigured by the Gnostics: it was guessed at under the obscurities that cover the pretended crimes of the Templars; and it is found enveloped in enigmas that seem impenetrable, in the Rites of the Highest Masonry."
Source: Morals and Dogma p.839


"The three great lights of the Lodge are symbols to us of the Power, Wisdom and Beneficence of the Deity. They are also symbols of the first three Sephiroth, according to the Kabbalah…"

"If your wife child, or friend should ask you anything about your invitation - as for instance, if your clothes were taken off, if you were blind folded, if you had a rope tied around your neck, etc., you must conceal... hence of course you must deliberately lie about it. It is part of your obligation..."

Concerning the Masonic Occult mystery schools Albert Pike writes: Various Quotes

Tertullian
was born in the year 155 and died in 240, says in his Apology:
" None are admitted to the religious Mysteries without an oath of secrecy. We appeal to our Thracian and Eleusinian mysteries; and we are especially bound to this caution, because if we prove faithless, we should not only provoke Heaven, but draw upon our heads the utmost rigor of human displeasure. And should strangers betray us? They knew nothing but by report and hearsay. Far hence, ye profane! Is the prohibition from all holy Mysteries."

Clemens Bishop of Alexandria
was born in the year 150 and died in 215. In his Catechesis he says:
"The Lord spake in parables to his hearers in general; but to his disciples He explained in private the parables and allegories which He spoke in public. The splendor of glory is for those who are early enlightened: obscurity and darkness are the portion of the unbelievers and ignorant. Just so the church discovers its Mysteries to those who have advanced beyond the class of Catechumens:  we employ obscure terms with others."

Cyril Bishop of Jerusalem
born in the year 313 and died in 386. In his Catechesis he says:
"The Lord spake in parables to his hearers in general; but to his disciples He explained in private the parables and allegories which He spoke in public. The splendor of glory is for those who are early enlightened: obscurity and darkness are the portion of the unbelievers and ignorant. Just so the church discovers its Mysteries to those who have advanced beyond the class of Catechumens:  we employ obscure terms with others."

St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo
who was born in 347 and died in 430, says in one of his discourses:
"Having dismissed the Catechumens, we have retained you only to be our hearers; because, besides those things which belong to all Christians in common, we are now to discourse to you of Sublime Mysteries, which none are qualified to hear, but those who, by the Master's favor, are made partakers of them... To have taught them openly, would have been to betray them."

St. Ambrose bishop of Milan
who was born in 340 and died in 397,writes to those who are initiated;
"and initiation was not merely baptism, or admission into the church, but it referred to initiation into the Mysteries."

...St. Chrysostom and St. Augustine speaks of initiation more than fifty times…


St. Chrysostom, Bishop of Constantinople,
was born in 354 and died in 417. He says:
"I wish to speak openly: but I dare not, on account of those who are not initiated. I shall therefore avail myself of disguising terms, discoursing in a shadowy manner... Where the holy Mysteries are celebrated, we drive away all uninitiated persons, and then close the doors.
He mentions the acclamations of the initiated:
I here pass over in silence; for it is forbidden to disclose such things to the Profane.
"

St. Cyril of Alexandria
who was made Bishop in 412 and died in 444, says in his 7th book against Julian:
"These Mysteries are so profound and so exalted, that they can be comprehended by those only who are enlightened."

Albert Pike's letter to Mazzini dated August 15, 1871:

o    "The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the "agentur" (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions."

o    "The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm."

o    "The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."


Author’s note:

See what the Bible says concerning these so called mysteries:

Isaiah 45:19
"I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the Earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right."

Isaiah 48:16
"Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord God, and his spirit, hath sent me."

Amos 3:7
"Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets."

Manly Palmer Hall Quotes

The Lost Keys of Freemasonry
"The true Mason is not creed-bound. He realizes with the divine illumination of his lodge that as a Mason his religion must be universal: Christ, Buddha or Mohammad, the name means little, for he recognizes only the light and not the bearer. He worships at every shrine, bows before every alter, whether in Temple. Mosque or Cathedral, realizing with his truer understanding the oneness of all spiritual truth."

Reflections of the Christ by (D. Spangler)
"The true light of Lucifer cannot be seen through sorrow, through darkness, through rejection. The true light of this great being can only be recognized when one's own eyes can see with the light of the Christ, the light of the inner sun. LUCIFER works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into a NEW AGE, which is the age of man's wholeness, each of us in some way is brought to that point which I term the LUCIFERIC INITIATION, the particular doorway through which the individual MUST PASS if he is to come 'fully' into the presence of his light and his wholeness ...Lucifer comes to give us the final gift of wholeness."
