Unknown to the members of these various
secret societies seeking "Illumination" and "deification," their
masters are the Cabalistic Jew, the originator of Gnostic mysticism.
(Please see the text that follows).
"The three forms of initiation --
individual, group, or universal -- all lead to conscious or
unconscious control by a central power, who in some mysterious
way makes its influence felt; often clairvoyantly
and clairaudiently seen and heard, but never
physically present or visible. the system in all three is the
same -- cabalistic. Secretly here and there individuals are
prepared; these again form groups or centers from which
influences spread until they form a network covering the entire
world. Like rays from a hidden sun these groups are apparently
divergent and detached, but in reality all issue from the same
The system is seen to be an
insidious and secret dissemination of ideas, orienting and
breaking down all barriers of family, religion, morality,
nationality, and all self-initiative thought, always under the
cloak of a new and more modern religion, new thought, new
morality, a new heaven and a new earth; until it evolves a
gigantic robot merely answering to the will and commands of a
secret Master Mind. They dream they are free, original,
self-determining individuals; they are but the negative moon
reflecting and reproducing the light from the same hidden and
cabalistic Sun. It is called regeneration by
the Illuminati; it is in truth individual death and
disintegration, followed by a resurrection as negative
"light-bearers" of this cabalistic dark Sun whose

Darkness, The Christian Book Club of America, p105).
The Jewish Encyclopaedia points
out that Gnosticism,
"was Jewish in character long before
it became Christian," and quotes the opinion, "a movement
closely connected with Jewish mysticism."
The Freemason Ragon says:
"The Cabala is the key of the occult
sciences. The Gnostics were born of the Cabalists."
Rabbi Benamozegh says,
"Those who will take the trouble to
examine with care the connection between Judaism and philosophic
Freemasonry, theosophy, and the mysteries in general . . . will
cease to smile in pity at the suggestion that Cabalistic
theology may have a role to play in the religious
transformations of the future. . . . It contains the key to the
modern religious problem"
(Anonymous, Light- bearers of
Darkness, The Christian Book Club of America, p11).
"Chaldean thought acted powerfully upon orthodox
Judaism and determined the growth of a sect in its midst which
was to transform Israel. . . . This sect was that of the
Pharisees. . . . What they borrowed (from the Chaldeans) in fact
. . . was the essence of the Pantheistic doctrine . . . It was
then that was formed from these borrowings that Kabalah of
the Pharisees which was for long transmitted orally from
Master to disciple, and was, 800 years later, to inspire the
compilation of the Talmud, and found its
completest expression in the Sepher ha Zohar. . .
. This religion of the 'Deified Man,' with which they
were impregnated in Babylon, was only conceived as
benefiting the Jew, superior and predestinated being. . . ."
(M. Flavien Bernier, Les Juifs et le
The Jewish writer Bernard Lazare
"It is certain that there were Jews
even at the cradle of Freemasonry --
Cabalistic Jews, as it is proved by certain existing
rites . . . The Jew is also a builder: proud, ambitious,
domineering, he tries to draw everything to himself. He is not
satisfied with de-Christianising, he Judaises; he destroys the
Catholic or Protestant faith, he provokes indifference, but he
imposes his idea of the world, of morals, and of life upon whose
faith he ruins; he works at his age-old task -- the annihilation
of the religion of Christ!"
Mrs. Nesta Webster in Secret
Societies and Subversive Movements, writes:
Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion
have been marvelously correct as prophecy, foreshadowing all of
this in a remarkable way, whatever their first origin, before
Maurice Joly used part of them in 1864."
"Dr. Ranking, who has devoted many years of study to the
question . . . in a very interesting paper published in the
masonic journal, Ars Quatuor Coronatorum, observes:
'That from the very commencement
of Christianity there has been transmitted through the
centuries a body of doctrine incompatible with Christianity
in the various official Churches. That the bodies teaching
these doctrines profess to do so on the authority of St.
John, to whom, as they claimed, the true secrets had been
committed by the Founder of Christianity, that during the
Middle Ages, the main support of the Gnostic bodies and the
main repository of this knowledge (Johannism) was the
Society of the Templars.'
And he further said, 'The record of
the Templars in Palestine is one long tale of
intrigue and treachery on the part of the Order'."
In his History of Magic,
Eliphas Levi informs us:
"The Templars had two
doctrines: one was concealed and reserved to the leaders, being
that of Johannism; the other was public, being
Roman Catholic doctrine. . . The Johannism of
the adepts was the Kabalah of the Gnostics, but it
degenerated speedily into a mystic pantheism carried even to
idolatry of Nature and hatred of all revealed dogma. . . They
fostered the regrets of every fallen worship and the hopes of
every new cults, promising to all liberty of conscience and a
new orthodoxy which should be the synthesis of all persecuted
beliefs. They went even so far as to recognize the pantheistic
symbolism of the grand masters of Black Magic . .
. they rendered divine honours to the monstrous idol
