Religion: The Occult Connection — Part II
What you see on the tombstone of the founder of the Watchtower movement is the Knights Templar Symbol for the York Rite of Freemasonry (See below). This degree is equivalent to the 33rd Degree of Freemasonry and is the highest degree of the York Rite indicating that he knew whom he was serving. It was not Jesus Christ of Nazareth to be sure. Shown below are examples of how the Christian Science and Jehovah's Witnesses cults have used this symbol. This is where Charles Taze Russell (1852-1916), 33rd Degree Freemason and founder of the Jehovah's Witnesses cult is buried.

Masonic Knights Templar Symbol
Tim LaHaye's book, The Power Of The Cross, features an occult symbol on the cover
The above picture on the left is the cover of the recent book (1999) by Tim LaHaye called, The Power of the Cross. The one on the right is a centuries old Masonic symbol of the Knights Templar. Some might mistake it for a Christian symbol, but Masonic author Ray Denslow reveals its true sinister meaning:"The Cross and Crown may be said to be confined almost exclusively to the historical degrees in Masonry as exemplified in the various orders of knighthood of York and Scottish rites. In Gaul we find the cross to have been a solar symbol when it had equal arms and angles; to the Phoenicians it was an instrument of sacrifice to their God, Baal; and to the Egyptians, the crux ansata was his symbol of eternal life." (Ray V. Denslow, Masonic Portraits, Transactions of the Missouri Lodge of Research, vol. #29, p.7 — emphasis in the original)Masonic authority Albert Pike also wrote of the meaning of the above symbol in his book Morals and Dogma, explaining that it has a sexual connotation to it as well. (Why is this symbol on a 'Christian' book cover). Was it also a coincidence that LaHaye and his associates set up their Pretrib Research Center in a place that's considered a vortex of occultic power in Washington D.C. They were located on L'Enfant Promenade, a street named after the Mason Pierre Charles L'Enfant who designed the city in Masonic and Occultic symbols. From there, coincidently, they moved their research center to the Dallas area, another city that is sacred to Freemasonry because of its proximity to the 33rd degree of latitude. Christians aren't supposed to believe in coincidences?
Above: Oral Roberts Medical Center. Notice the Illuminati pyramid. Oral Roberts was an occult 33rd degree Freemason. The Charismatic Movement teaches the lie of Lordship Salvation, a false Gospel. Jack Chick caters to them in his tracts by requiring people to be willing to stop living in sin to be saved. It is not what you're doing that gets you to Heaven, it's where you're looking. Look to Jesus!

Seventh-Day Adventism's Ellen G. White and Freemasonry
Photo to Right: Founder of 7th Day Adventism, Ellen G. White's Tomb Stone. Notice the Illuminati symbol. Obelisks represent Freemasonry, clearly evidenced by the Washington Monument. George Washington was a 33rd Degree Freemason.
Without prophetess Ellen G. White (November 26, 1827— July 16, 1915) there would be no Seventh-day Adventist [SDA] Church; however, SDAs seek to avoid the issue because Ellen G. White’s life was saturated with occultism, damnable heresies and bizarre experiences.
SDAs revere White’s writings as being equally inspired with the Bible.
Interestingly, Charles Taze Russell (founder of the Jehovah’s Witnesses), Ron Hubbard (founder of Scientology), and Joseph Smith (founder of the Mormon religion) were all 33rd Degree Freemasons.
Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, was an associate of 33rd Degree Freemason Henry Steele Olcott who founded the Satan worshipping cult called the "Theosophical Society" with evil female Freemason, mother of the New Age Movement and Hitler's spiritual guide, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky.
Satan is the god of this sinful world (2nd Corinthians 4:4) and operates through the occult to perform his works of darkness.
2nd Corinthians 11:13,14 informs us that Satan transforms himself into an angel of light to deceive people, and his sinister ministers are transformed into ministers of righteousness.
Should it be surprising then that the Catholics, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Scientologists, Christian Scientists, Seventh-day Adventists, and other religions are all OF THE DEVIL.
There is a visible, obvious, verifiable occult connection between nearly all major religions today, especially with Freemasonry.
Below are some creepy occult images of the Seventh-Day Adventist (SDA) religious cult. ...
The Bible teaches that the eyes of Adam and Eve were opened to the KNOWLEDGE of good and evil the day they sinned by eating of the forbidden fruit (Genesis 3:5,7). Carefully notice that the word “eyes” in Genesis 3:5,7 is the Hebrew word ayin, singular, meaning just one “eye.” The eye has great spiritual significance in the Scriptures, referring to one's spiritual enlightenment and understanding. It is the eye to one's soul. The ancient mystery religion which originated in Egypt, taught that through higher consciousness (occult enlightenment) that godhood could be achieved. Occult symbols were adopted into this ancient mystery religion (Lucifer worship). This is the core teaching of New Age.
The satanic religion of Kaballah has 125 levels of enlightenment, which if ascended, is supposed to advance a person to godhood. Luciferian-worshippers are infiltrating evangelical churches, introducing spirituality without theology. This is why all the modern corrupted Bible versions remove key theological terms and corrupt key passages concerning Jesus' deity and the Godhead. Freemasons and occultists worldwide are preparing the world for the coming man of sin, THE ANTICHRIST!
Max Lucado, Church of Christ Minister, Illuminati Author
Photo to right: Max Lucado's 2009 book, FEARLESS, clearly showing the Masonic pyramid. Just as Rick Warren, who is an Illuminati plant and CFR member, so is Max Lucado a part of the New World Order's Ecumenical Movement. Notice the Masonic pyramid and the top capstone too! We see this much today!
Ecumenicals are dangerous false prophets who profess to believe the fundamentals of the Bible in their statement of faith; but for filthy lucre's sake teach and promote something entirely different. Ecumenicals are very vague in their teachings, to avoid offending supporters or fans. Ecumenicals will say different things to different crowds, whatever it takes to make more money.
God is not the author of confusion; Satan is! 1st Corinthians 14:33, “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” You'll hear Benny Hinn say wonderful things in one sermon, perhaps even falsely thinking he is a Christian at times; yet in other places you'll hear him endorsing Our Lady of Fatima (Catholic) on the Larry King Show, teaching doctrines of devils and partaking of demonic false healing and heretical tongues meetings. NBC Nightline has documented that Hinn is a big fraud and liar. Benny Hinn wants your money, and he has learned that people will give him their money if he makes them feel good. So Hinn, like other televangelists, preys upon people (2nd Peter 2:3).
Here are some general truthful observations about ecumenicals:
- Ecumenical ministries and Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) singers use occult symbols.
- Ecumenical preachers are part of the New World Order (whether they realize it or not). And again, ecumenism is defined as: trying to unite religious people by error; rather than dividing over truth as God commands (2nd Corinthians 6:14-17). Love and unity are sinful compromise if not based upon THE TRUTH (John 4:24).
- Ecumenical preachers are greedy and have things to sell (the love of money is truly the root of all evil)
- Ecumenical preachers deceitfully claim to believe the fundamentals of the Bible (Ninety-nine percent of everything they teach, publish, and do in public is apostate mumbo-jumbo, self-helps, how to become a success financially; virtually devoid of the fundamentals of the Bible, i.e., the Doctrine of Christ mentioned in 2nd John 1:9. Their statement of faith is a mere smokescreen to deceive their Bible-believing critics. Ecumenicals are opportunists who will change like a chameleon lizard to whatever color necessary to make money and deceive their prey).
- Ecumenicals almost always end up on the New York Times Best Seller List of books. The Illuminati, i.e., the movers and shakers behind the evil New World Order, promote Ecumenicals because it helps achieve their goal; which is a one-world order, one-world religion, one-world economy, one-world government, one-world court, one-world everything!!! The Antichrist will be a dictator, who will bring order out of chaos to the world.
Ecumenicals want to unite all denominations in error; speaking the truth in one breath, while uniting with liars in the next. As mentioned, they post a statement of faith to look like genuine Christians; but all of their books and public teachings are completely devoid of THE TRUTH that matters. The Doctrine of Christ is ignored. Hell fire and damnation are not mentioned. The King James Bible is abandoned. Whatever true Biblical doctrine exists in ecumenism is buried behind worldly music, secular philosophies and unbiblical unity with apostates.
Satan knows if he can corrupt just a tiny bit, just get an inch in the door; he's home free! It only requires the tiniest amount of virus to infect the entire body. This is why it is very important that we as believers contend for the Biblical faith (Jude 1:3), earnestly fighting against those who pervert the simplicity that is in Christ (2nd Corinthians 11:3), identifying them who cause doctrinal riffs in the church (Romans 16:17), rebuking with authority those who teach heresies (Titus 1:13), and refuting (exposing) all works of darkness (Ephesians 5:11). The Christian who is awake to righteousness and loves Jesus Christ has their hands full fighting the good fight of faith as a soldier (2nd Timothy 2:3).
International Churches of Christ
INTERNATIONAL CHURCHES OF CHRIST (ICOC) are a New World Order (NWO) religion. On their main website, it is no coincidence that the following joining of hands coincidentally forms an Illuminati pyramid (as seen everywhere in the corporate and religious world today). The symbol shows allegiance to the New World Order, whose god is Satan, whose anticipated leader will be the Antichrist.
Oh, how I wish that I could wake people up to the truth of what's going on in the world today. Look at the image above. Who joins hands like that? You can see that they're a part of Satan's NWO!!! The Freemasons who head all of today's mainstream religious denominations are leading the gullible world's masses into World Religion.
Satan is Subtle
When the Antichrist comes, that is, the Beast, he will seek for all men to worship him, including the churches and different denominational groups. The stage is now being set. False prophets like Max Lucado and Rick Warren are setting the stage for the Antichrist. As hard as it is to imagine, it's true. Lucado was named “America's Pastor” by apostate Christianity Today magazine and in 2005 was named by demonic Reader's Digest as “The Best Preacher in America.” He has been featured on The Fox News Channel, NBC Nightly News, Larry King Live, USA Today, and a bunch of other worldly demonic shows. Luke 6:26, “Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.” There you have it! The Bible says it all! Jesus said that nearly everyone speaks well of false prophets!
In 2005, ChristianityToday voted Max Lucado as the This is one more reason why I believe the Antichrist will come soon, which means that the Rapture of the saints is very near.
The Bible tells of a demon-possessed woman who followed the Apostles and told people to listen to them to be saved...
Acts 16:16-17, “And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.”
Why would Satan influence this witch to tell people to listen to God's men? The answer is obviously that she was turning people away from the truth. She was causing a distraction, making people think she was crazy, as well as the Apostles. Satan is a dirty fiend and has so many dirty tactics that he employs to keep people from getting saved. Benny Hinn is not a true Biblical Christian. Hinn's ludicrous acts done for fun and amusement have turned untold MILLIONS of souls away from hearing the Gospel...
Did you ever stop to realize that every unsaved hellbound Catholic, Mormon, Church of Christ, Seventh-Day Adventist, Jehovah's Witness and Christian Science cult follower believes in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ? It's true! So what sets the true Gospel apart from what all these demonic cults teach and believe? I'll tell you.
The Bible speaks of the “simplicity that is in Christ” in 2nd Corinthians 11:3. The simple Gospel is that we are SINNERS and Jesus is the SAVIOR! Christ died, that's history; Christ died for me, that's salvation! The Biblical Gospel excludes all forms of self-righteousness; including water baptism, Holy Communion, Sabbath keeping, good works, church membership, speaking in tongues, amending one's ways, forsaking the world, et cetera. Eternal life is a free gift, paid for by Jesus' precious literal blood (1st Peter 1:18,19). Salvation is not something we do to get; it is a gift that we receive to have! We simply receive Jesus Christ as John 1:12 teaches, believing on the Son of God.
The Gospel is so delicate, so profoundly simple, that it is easily corrupted. By adding even the slightest alteration, the Gospel is corrupted into a lie of Satan. The serpent came to Eve in the Garden of Eden to deceive her, saying, “Hath God said?” (Genesis 3:1). Satan called God a liar, tricking Eve. Similarly, there are many false religions and false prophets today who will tell you anything to get your money.

Occult Symbols and Heresy in Religious Bookstores
Seventh-Day Adventists (SDA) are deceivers, led by Satan. I visited a so-called “Christian Bookstore.” When I was leaving, the woman behind the checkout desk gave me some of their business cards. I took a look at one of their business cards while driving away and almost drove off the road. The bookstore itself is owned by Southern Baptists, but they sell SDA materials, which I think is wrong. I understand that a religious bookstore needs to sell all sorts of materials from different religions to make enough money to keep their doors open, which is why I would never own a religious bookstore. It would only be successful if you have a large population of your particular religion coming to your store. It is wrong for a Christian to sell materials which promote false religions.
Here is their card, which I scanned to my computer to show you. . .
A business card from a non-denominational owned bookstore
I immediately recognized the all-seeing eye, which is a very popular occult symbol, showing one's allegiance to the New World Order. It seemed strange to me that a small advertised Christian bookstore would be a part of the New World Order, so I went back to the store to take a closer look. I figured that they must be a part of a bigger organization that is a part of the New World Order.
Although I found some works of darkness by Doug Bachelor, who is a popular Seventh-Day Adventist speaker in California, the couple who operate the bookstore are southern Baptists. They're selling a bunch of books and videos by religious cults!!! I kindly informed the lady who owns the store that Pastor Max Lucado teaches a false plan of salvation. She was offended, because right next to me was a giant life-size cardboard cutout of Max Lucado by the tables with hundreds of his books. Lucado used to require water baptism for salvation as a Church of Christ pastor. Now he says water baptism is not required, but if you're really saved you won't refuse water baptism, so it's a catch-22 type heresy. Please read on...
Tragically, Max Lucado is an ecumenical false prophet, who teaches the Church of Christ's false doctrine that salvation is SEALED by water baptism. Lucado deceitfully claims that he doesn't believe in Baptismal Regeneration (requiring water baptism for salvation); yet he teaches that water baptism is essential to be signing and sealed...
“Baptism effectively seals our salvation.”
“In baptism God signs and seals our conversion to him.”
On Max Lucado's website, in the article Baptism: The Demonstration of Devotion, Lucado states:
“Baptism separates the tire kickers from the car buyers.”
Those are some dangerous words. So if you don't get water baptized, then you're only kicking the tires of salvation but not buying it? That what Max is teaching! How much clearer could it be that Max is teaching Baptismal Regeneration? If you don't get water baptized, then Lucado says you are not sealed in your faith and are at risk of going to Hell. Kicking the tire means you didn't get saved. From reading his literature, I've found that Lucado's mindset is that a person who has faith in Christ will follow through with water baptism. Thus, Lucado believes that if a person refuses water baptism it is because their faith was not real to begin with, just a tire kicker who doesn't actually buy the car!
Clearly, Lucado believes that water baptism is essential in some way to salvation. He believes that water baptism seals the deal. Unfortunately, Pastor Lucado speaks out of both sides of his mouth, which is exactly what ALL Ecumenical, New World Order [NWO], Lordship Salvationists and false prophets do! What's a NWO order false prophet? These are greedy men who have been selected by Freemasons to corrupt the masses. In the religious bookstore I visited, they had a life-sized cardboard cutout of Max Lucado. His books were stacked high! I wanted to vomit. To be fair, Lucado is doctrinally sound for the most part. However, if a man is wrong on salvation, then he cannot and should not be trusted for anything else that he teaches. If you get that first shirt button crooked, then all the other buttons will be crooked too.
I went home and looked up the GENERAL CONFERENCE OF SEVENTH DAY ADVENTISTS website, and here is their official SDA logo . . .
Official Seventh-Day Adventist Logo, shaped as a Masonic pyramid
Notice the shape of the Masonic occult pyramid, which is also displayed on the back of every U.S. one-dollar bill to mock the stupidity of society, and to remind us that we are now slaves to the Masonic-controlled New World Order . . .
Notice the all-seeing occult Eye of Horus, commonly displayed inside the Illuminati pyramid, which has its origins in ancient Egyptian occult religion. The all-seeing eye is representative of Lucifer, the angel of light, who is the god of this world according to 1st Corinthians 4:4.
Here is the creepy logo for CBS studios . . .
Now take another look at the religious bookstore's business card . . .
Notice above that they have the all-seeing eye and the Masonic pyramid displayed together, which is common. Usually the eye is inside the pyramid, and it is interesting to see the pyramid inside the eye instead; but they are occult symbols nonetheless, which often appear together, showing allegiance and support for the Devil. It is all creepy; but moreover, shows that Satan is in control of ALL organized religions. Some believers have been deceived into believing that the fish symbol is a symbol that was used by the early church. Yeah, and it just so happens to be an All Seeing Eye too! That's just like Helen Keller's alleged “I Love You” hand-sign, which coincidentally is also the El Diablo Satanic hand-sign (so says Anton LaVey in his “The Satanic Bible”). Wake up!
As born-again Christians, Jesus taught that the Kingdom of God is within us (Luke 17:21). Be warned my friend, Satan is behind all organized religions today, leading the masses to worship the coming Antichrist, the Beast. That's what the occult all-seeing eye and pyramid all represent, i.e., the completion of the New World Order, which will be led by the Beast. That's not to say that there are not some decent churches. There are many. Although there's no such thing as “The Baptist Church,” I prefer Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches (IFBC) myself. A building is not a church. A 501c3 state-licensed organization is not a church. Plush-carpeting, padded-pews and a baptistry do not constitute a New Testament Church. A Biblical “church” is a local assembly of born-again Christians meeting together in Jesus' name. To learn much more, please read “THE CHURCH” by Dr. Jack Hyles.
Thank God for those few faithful New Testament churches still remaining today, who have not bowed their knee to Baal, who do not display Masonic occult symbols on their building and literature; and have a man of God as their pastor watching over their souls, contending for the doctrine of Christ, teaching personal soul-winning, and taking a Biblical stand against public wickedness.
The New World Order is here, which is what all the occult symbols reveal, whether it be in the secular realm or the clergy. Devotion to the Devil is everywhere, which is what I am showing you and warning you about. If you are a member or attend one of the mainstream religions I have exposed, please leave it immediately and don't look back!
The Freemason occult is the common denominator.
