As an Agnostic/Atheist when I speak with Freemasons they always claim nobody knows where Freemasonry began which if I was naive I would just take their word for it. According to Freemasons, Jews, occult authors and ceremonial magicians, Freemasonry was born in Israel with King Solomon, that’s why he is at the center of Freemasonry, that’s why when a Mason becomes Master of the lodge he is anointed into the Chair of Solomon.
Solomon worshipped Ashtoreth/Astarte the Queen of Heaven and counter part of Baal, worshipped by the Jews in ancient times according to the Jewish Encyclopedia & the Bible. Solomon also worshipped Molech & Chemosh. In the King James version of the Bible it is written in 1 Kings chapter 11 “For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father. Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon“. 2 Kings chapter 23 it is written “And the high places that were before Jerusalem, which were on the right hand of the mount of corruption, which Solomon the king of Israel had builded for Ashtoreth the abomination of the Zidonians, and for Chemosh the abomination of the Moabites, and for Milcom the abomination of the children of Ammon, did the king defile“. Solomon worshipped Gods of human and child sacrifice.
In Morals & Dogma, Pike (1871) writes “All truly dogmatic religions have issued from the Kabalah and return to it : everything scientific and grand in the religious dreams of all the illuminati, Jacob Bcehme, Swedenborg, Saint Martin, and others, is borrowed from the Kabalah; all the Masonic associations owe to it their Secrets and their Symbols“.
In Transcendental magic, its doctrine and ritual, Lévi (1896) and Waite (2011) write “All truly dogmatic religions have issued from the Kabbalah and return therein; whatsoever is grand or scientific in the religious dreams of all the illuminated, Jacob Boehme, Swedenborg, Saint Martin, &c., is borrowed from the Kabbalah; all masonic associations owe to it their secrets and their symbols. The Kabbalah alone consecrates the alliance of universal reason and the divine Word; it establishes, by the counterpoise of two forces apparently opposed, the eternal balance of being; it only reconciles reason with faith, power with liberty, science with mystery; it has the keys of the present, past, and future!“.
Gardner (2005) writes that Freemasonry began in England in 1717, Bessel (1989) writes that “Jews were actively involved in the beginnings of Freemasonry in America. There is evidence they were among those who established Masonry in 7 of the original 13 states: Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Georgia, South Carolina, and Virginia. A Jewish Mason, Moses Michael Hays, helped introduce the Masonic Scottish Rite in America. Hays was also Deputy Inspector General of Masonry for North America in 1768, and Grand Master of Massachusetts from 1788 to 1792. Paul Revere served under him as Deputy Grand Master. There were several other Jews who held the title of Deputy Inspector General of Masonry in the late 1700’s: Solomon Bush in Pennsylvania, Joseph Myers in Maryland and later in South Carolina, and Abraham Forst of Philadelphia in Virginia in 1781. Another Jewish Grand Master was Moses Seixas in Rhode Island from 1791 until 1800. There were many other American Jewish Masons in early American history, including one in George Washington’s original Fredericksburg Lodge. Jewish Masons played an important part in the American Revolution, with 24 of them serving as officers in George Washington’s army“.
Stories of the ruler of Israel King Solomon are at the heart of modern freemasonry, they relate to Solomons Temple in Jerusalem where the Ark of the Covenant was housed in the Sanctum Santorum (Holy of Holies). In a documentary on the Knights Templar, PBS America (2014) state that Solomons Temple is Jewish.
Fellman (2013) states that “In the Masonic world Jerusalem has always been regarded as the birthplace of Freemasonry; according to its tradition, there were Masonic lodges in the Holy Land at the time of the erection of King Solomon’s Temple. Lodges are known there from the middle of the 19th century. During the Ottoman regime, six lodges were established in the country. The first regular one was founded in Jerusalem in May 1873, under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Canada“.
Rabbi Wise (1855) states that “Masonry is a Jewish institution whose history, degrees, charges, passwords, and explanations are Jewish from the beginning to the end, with the exception of only one by-degree and a few words in the obligation“.
Falconer (2014) teaches that “references to the construction of King Solomon’s temple at Jerusalem have been included in the rituals of the operative freemasons since ancient times. In operative lodges the layout of the lodge room in each of the several degrees symbolizes either a stone yard or the temple building at one of the various stages of construction. As he participates in each of the several degrees, the candidate progressively represents the various types of stone used in the building, until ultimately he represents the plan of the temple. The ceremonial for each degree is based on the preparation and usage of the relevant stone during construction and ultimately on the application of the plan to achieve completion of the temple”.
Ashtoreth or Astarte is the Greek name of the Mesopotamian Semitic goddess Ishtar who was worshipped by King Solomon the man at the heart of Freemasonry.
Phoenicia (2014) writes that the Baal cult was practiced in Israel which led to an amalgamation of religions where religious prostitution and the practice of child sacrifice was practiced. The Jewish Encyclopedia write that the Assyrian (Babylonian) “bēl”, was originally the same word as Baal, “implies especially lordship over men“. “The origin of the Worship of Ba’al among the Hebrews can only be settled by tracing it among the Semites in general and especially among the Babylonians. Here the name (Bel) is that of one of the earliest and most honored of national deities. Bel was the special god of Nippur, perhaps the oldest of Babylonian cities“. According to the Jewish Encyclopedia, Baal was a sun god, it was popular belief that Yhwh himself was regarded as the chief of the Ba’als.
In the Old Testament the old Semitic mother-goddess Ashtoreth is called Ashtarte in Phenicia, Ishtar in Babylonia, and Athtar in Arabia.
The Jewish Encyclopedia write that in Phenicia “Ashtarte was the chief goddess of the Sidonians, among whom she was worshiped as an independent divinity, and also under the name “Ashtarte of the name of Baal,” as a counterpart of Baal“. In North Africa, Ashtoreth was known as Tanith.
At several different shrines in Babylonia and Assyria Ashtarte was worshiped as Ishtar, in one of the oldest and most important shrines known as Erech, she was called Nanâ. At Agade she was worshiped as the spouse of Shamash while at Babylon she was the spouse of Marduk. At the latter shrine, she was named Zarpanit. In Assyria, at Nineveh, and Assur Ashtarte was regarded as the spouse of Assur. “From the reign of Sennacherib onward the Ishtar of Arbela is regarded as distinct from the other Ishtars. She had no spouse, was mother, and a goddess of war“.
In Arabia she was known as Athtar, and in southern Arabia was a masculine deity. In Abyssinia Athtar was known as Astar. At Eryx Ashtarte was symbolized in the form of a dove, while at Mecca she was symbolized as a gazelle. In Sabæa Ashtarte was identified with the sun and the morning star while at Mecca and Assyria, she was symbolized with Venus and at Zidon, symbolized with the moon.
Astarte was connected with fertility, sexuality, and war. Her symbols were the lion, the horse, the sphinx, the dove, and a star within a circle indicating the planet Venus. According to the Oxford Dictionary Lucifer means “The planet Venus when it rises in the morning“. An example of Astarte symbolism can be seen on the Eye of the big brother house.
Astaroth (also Ashtaroth, Astarot and Asteroth), in demonology, is a Crowned Prince of Hell. He is a male figure named after the Canaanite goddess Ashtoreth.
During the 18th dynasty Astarte arrived in Ancient Egypt along with other deities who were worshiped by northwest Semitic people native to the land. She was often paired with the goddess Anat and worshiped as a warrior goddess.
In the Contest Between Horus and Set, these two goddesses are daughters of the Egyptian God Ra and are given in marriage to the god Set or Seth the Egyptian religions devil.
Carus (1900), Hart (2005) and Lindemans (2014) write that Set or Seth is the first born of Geb and Nut or Re and Nut, born in Ombos in Upper Egypt, generally regarded as his birthplace and home of his cult. Set or Seth’s cult was also located in the north eastern region of the Nile delta. He had 3 siblings, they are Osiris, Isis and Nephthys. Pike (1871) and Lindemans (2014) write that Set or Seth is sometimes known as the husband and brother of Nepthys although more commonly associated with the Semitic goddesses Astarte and Anat. Set or Seth is the enemy of his brother Osiris and Horus who is the son of Osiris and his older sister Isis (Pike, 1871), Hart (2005) and Lindemans (2014) writes that Seth attacked Osiris in the land of Gahesty and murdered him at his cult centre on the river bank of Nedyet.
Isis also known as Isia to the Greeks is the wife and older sister of Osiris, when Set or Seth murdered his brother Osiris, Isis, sister to both Set & Osiris, went on a journey to gather the scattered pieces of Osiris’s body. After Isis collected the pieces she wrapped them together with several layers of fabric and then resurrected Osiris, at which point they conceived his son and heir Horus. The memory of this event was celebrated yearly amongst the Egyptians.
Schnoebelen (1991) writes “In Egyptian Mythology, Horus IS Lucifer“.
According to Pike (1871) the following was inscribed on the tomb of Isis “I am Isis, Queen of this country. I was instructed by Mercury. No one can destroy the laws which I have established. I am the eldest daughter of Saturn, most ancient of the Gods. I am the wife and sister of Osiris the King. I first made known to mortals the use of wheat. I am the mother of Orus the King. In my honor was the city of Bubaste built. Rejoice, O Egypt, rejoice, land that gave me birth!“
According to Pike (1871) the following was inscribed on the tomb of Osiris “I am Osiris the King, who led my armies into all parts of the world, to the most thickly inhabited countries of India, the North, the Danube, and the Ocean. I am the eldest son of Saturn : I was born of the brilliant and magnificent egg, and my substance is of the same nature as that which composes light. There is no place in the Universe where I have not appeared, to bestow my benefits and make known my discoveries“.
Pike (1871) believed that “The Prophet Amos explicitly asserts that the Israelites, in the desert, worshipped, not Jehovah, but Moloch, or a Star-God, equivalent to Saturn. The Gods El or Jehovah were not merely planetary or solar. Their symbolism, like that of every other Deity, was coextensive with nature, and with the mind of man“.
“THE Teraphim of Abram’s father Terah, the “maker of images,” and the Kabiri Gods are directly connected with ancient Sabæan worship or Astrolatry. Kiyun, or the God Kivan, worshipped by the Jews in the wilderness, is Saturn and Shiva, later on called Jehovah” (Blavatsky, 1800s).
Hitchcock (2007) writes that the Star of David or the Hexagram was used by ancient mystery religions as the symbol of Molech which is the name of the owl worshiped at Bohemian Grove and, Astaroth (derived from the Phoenician goddess Astarte). The Hexagram is commonly referred to as a symbol of Satan. As well as being a symbol of Satan the Hexagram is also used as a representation of Saturn another name for Satan and/or Lucifer.
Again, as an Agnostic/Atheist when I speak with Christians and Catholics they always seem to ignore the fact that Jesus Christ was a Jewish Rabbi and that Mary, Jesus mother, Joseph Jesus father, were also Jewish. They often say that Jesus was a Hebrew, a term used by Israelites when talking about themselves.
Jesus was a Jewish Rabbi, if not a myth, the New Testament referred Jesus as the King of the Jews. Born roughly 7–2 BC and died roughly 30–33 AD. According to Dr Ernst L Martin in the book The Star of Bethlehem: The Star That Astonished the World, the birth of Jesus happened on the evening of September 11th, 3 BCE on the Gregorian calendar, which is the first of Tishri on the Jewish calendar that marks Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year.
He was possibly born of either an incestuous paedophile or simply a paedophile relationship, it was Jewish tradition to wed children as young as 12 or 13, his mother Mary the alleged God-bearer, a Jewish woman, more accurately child. Her fathers name Joachim, her mother Saint Anne, bluntly put, they were both guilty of child abuse by the standards of current time once you take off the rose tinted glasses. Jesus was conceived before Mary and Joseph lived together, it may be the case the true father of Jesus was Joachim, was it not his “holy spirit” which impregnated Mary while she was contracted in marriage to the old widower Joseph, the child bride? Is the story in the Bible and Quran really proof of ancient child abuse?
Joseph the husband of Mary, according to historians Joseph was Jesus father. Jesus followers considered him Joseph’s son, they believed Jesus descended from King David through Joseph. In the Bible Joseph died at 110 years old. According tothe 20th of July, A.D. 18 or 19. That would give us a rough age for Joseph of between 83 to 88 when Jesus was born, if he really was born between 7 to 2 BC, and Mary was possibly as young as 12 or 13, the age Jewish maidens married.
To not single out Jesus, Muhammad was another person who is riddled with child sex, a paedophile according to British law and unwritten moral code, instead of idolizing the paedophile, think about the child victim. One of Muhammad’s wives, Aisha, was married to Muhammad at either 6 or 7, she stayed with her parents until 9 or 10 when marriage was consummated. Muhammad had sex with a child at the age of 53 and she was 9 or 10, he was a paedophile.
The real hero’s in these stories are Mary and Aisha, the child brides raped by paedophiles, and sold in marriage by parents not fit to be parents.
Many scholars agree that Jesus was a Jewish Rabbi from Galilee, a region in northern Israel.
Jews wrote the entire Old Testament and the New Testament with a possible exception of the apostle Luke. Jesus was a Jew, he lived as a Jew and followed Jewish religious practices, he refused to abolish Biblical Judaism.
The Bible was written by Jewish men that clearly show signs of being paedophiles and writing paedophile literature, their God was possibly a paedophile if the story is true, which I think it is not, simply based on truths. The Bible is heavily plagiarized with stories from ancient Mesopotamia.
According to the British Museum, the Assyrian version of the Old Testament flood story was identified in 1872 by George Smith, an assistant in The British Museum. They write “The Assyrian King Ashurbanipal (reigned 669-631 BC) collected a library of thousands of cuneiform tablets in his palace at Nineveh. It included letters, legal texts, lists of people, animals and goods, and a wealth of scientific information, as well as myths and legends” (British Museum, 2014).
“The best known of these was the story of Gilgamesh, a legendary ruler of Uruk, and his search for immortality. The Epic of Gilgamesh is a huge work, the longest piece of literature in Akkadian (the language of Babylonia and Assyria). It was known across the ancient Near East, with versions also found at Hattusas (capital of the Hittites), Emar in Syria and Megiddo in the Levant” (British Museum, 2014).
“This, the eleventh tablet of the Epic, describes the meeting of Gilgamesh with Utnapishtim. Like Noah in the Hebrew Bible, Utnapishtim had been forewarned of a plan by the gods to send a great flood. He built a boat and loaded it with all his precious possessions, his kith and kin, domesticated and wild animals and skilled craftsmen of every kind” (British Museum, 2014).
“Utnapishtim survived the flood for six days while mankind was destroyed, before landing on a mountain called Nimush. He released a dove and a swallow but they did not find dry land to rest on, and returned. Finally a raven that he released did not return, showing that the waters must have receded” (British Museum, 2014).
According to Preece (2014), a 1500 to 2000 year old Gospel has been discovered in Turkey, it was reportedly discovered 14 years ago (as of 2014) in the year 2000, the book is said to be written on animal hide, it is thought to be an authentic version of the Gospel of Barnabas, a disciple of “Jewish Rabbi” Jesus Christ. It was transferred by the Turkish government to the Ethnography Museum of Ankara by a police escort.
Barnabas was one of Jesus Jewish disciples, in the discovered book it claims that Jesus was not actually crucified, instead the book tells a story how Jesus ascended to heaven alive and it was extremist Jew Judas Iscariot who was crucified instead, Iscariot is said to be a member of Sicarii, “the most radical Jewish group, some of whom were terrorists“. The 1500-2000 year old book states that “Jewish Rabbi” Jesus Christ from Galilee, northern Israel was not actually the son of God, but simply a Jewish prophet who preached the word of God.
According to Preece (2014), Basij Press claims the text was written in the 5th or 6th century and it predicted the coming of the Prophet Muhammad and the religion of Islam. It comments the Christian world denies the existence of the Gospel, if the document is genuine then they are essentially blocking out recorded religious history to fit in with their own world view, lying to themselves and other followers. The report says “The discovery of the original Barnabas Bible will now undermine the Christian Church and its authority and will revolutionize the religion in the world“. “The most significant fact, though, is that this Bible has predicted the coming of Prophet Mohammad and in itself has verified the religion of Islam“. Turkish authorities believe the text is genuine.
Mormonism is a Christianity offshoot, which is an offshoot from Judaism, it is the predominant religious tradition of the Latter Day Saint movement. It was founded by Joseph Smith in the 1820s and has a following of 15 million members. Modern Mormonism represents a new non-Protestant faith that was taught by Mr Smith in the 1840s. After Smith died and conflicts occurred a lot of the Mormon community followed Brigham Young to western America, re-branding themselves as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).
Jewish LaVey Satanism
It doesn’t just end there, the Church of Satan was created by Anton LaVey, according to his official autobiography LaVey was Jewish and involved in Israeli arms smuggling (Barton, 1992). LaVey Satanism is Atheistic Israeli Zionism, Satanists start off being atheist and go on to believe that man is god.
Anton LaVey said, “We don’t worship Satan, we worship ourselves using the metaphorical representation of the qualities of Satan. Satan is the name used by Judeo-Christians for that force of individuality and pride within us. But the force itself has been called by many names. We embrace Christian myths of Satan and Lucifer, along with Satanic renderings in Greek, Roman, Islamic, Sumerian, Syrian, Phrygian, Egyptian, Chinese, or Hindu mythologies, to name but a few. We are not limited to one deity, but encompass all the expressions of the accuser or the one who advocates free thought and rational alternatives by whatever name he is called in a particular time and land“ (Barton, 1992).
“There are three categories of Satanists: 1) Traditional Satanists, 2) Religious Satanists, and 3) Freestyle Satanists“. “I would divide Satanic poseurs into three groups – Satanists, Christian Satanists, and nuts. I’d redefine Christian Satanists as those who are attracted to Satanism but can’t seem to break away from Christianity altogether. They continue to work within a primitive framework of Good vs. Evil, taking the part of Evil instead of Good“ (Barton, 1992).
According to ‘The Concise Corsini Encyclopedia of Psychology and Behavioral Science edited by W. Edward Craighead, Charles B. Nemeroff’, “Satanism has been defined in four levels (Simandl, 1997): (1) the experimental-dabbler, typically a teenager; (2) non-traditional, self-styled satanists, individuals or small groups obsessed with satanic themes; (3) organized traditional satanists, organized religious groups that are protected by religious freedom under American law, such as the Church of Satan; and (4) occultic networking or transgenerational cults, SRA groups perpetuated through family generations and the focus of this article (Ryder, 1992)“.
Howard Stanton Levey or Anton Szandor LaVey was born on April the 11th, 1930 in Chicago, Illinois, America to Michael Joseph Levey and Gertrude Augusta Coultron. His maternal grandmother was Luba Kolton born in Lupescu – Primakov, from a Gypsy father and a Jewish mother (Barton, 1992).
“The Law of Return 5710-1950 was enacted by the Knesset, Israel’s Parliament, on July 5, 1950. The Law declares the right of Jews to come to Israel: “Every Jew has the right to come to this country as an oleh.” Follow-up legislation on immigration matters was contained in the Nationality Law of 1952. The Law of Return was modified in 1970 to extend the right of return to non-Jews with a Jewish grandparent, and their spouses“.
“The law since 1970 applies to those born Jews (having a Jewish mother or maternal grandmother), those with Jewish ancestry (having a Jewish father or grandfather) and converts to Judaism (Orthodox, Reform, or Conservative denominations—not secular—though Reform and Conservative conversions must take place outside the state, similar to civil marriages)” (Wikipedia, 2014).
“Augusta LaVey and her husband Joe, a liquor distributor, raised Tony as they would any other bright, even-tempered boy, attempting to instill useful middle-class values without pressing any particular religious dictates on him. By the time he was seven, he grew absorbed with tales of the supernatural and occult which would obsess him for the rest of his life. Unable to fully understand what he read because of his younger age, he consulted his maternal grandmother, Luba Kolton (born Lupescu – Primakov, from a Gypsy father and a Jewish mother), who regaled Tony with the mysteries of her Transylvanian homeland — superstitions passed from generation to generation and incorporated in the greatest vampire legend of all, Dracula” (Barton, 1992).
“Every day I think less and less of what others are going to think. I don’t care what people say about me. What are they going to say? That I’m mad? That I’m wrong about the way the world really is? That I’m an evil, murderous mastermind? That I’m too extreme? That I’m a greasy, slimy, Jew – Gypsy roustabout who looks at the world through a carny’s eyes? They can think what they like. At least I’m not pretentious and I’m not stupid” (Barton, 1992).
“LaVey recalls, “The whole thing was very much like the escapades in old movies like The Woman on Pier 13. There were two main rendezvous spots in San Francisco, a Jewish Community Center and a Workers’ Collective downtown, where fellows would come in off the boat and went right down to meet contacts in the library of one of these places. I would be hired to play for a fashion show or variety show, then I’d get through and go right down to the docks where crates of guns were being loaded onto ships to Israel. Many of the guns were ones that had been ‘liberated’ during the war by American soldiers and were slated as DEWAT [deactivated war trophies]. But before they had a chance to be officially deactivated they were cosmolined up and sent to Israel. They’d wind up in a crate marked ‘menorahs’ or something–mostly German MP 40’s and P-38’s, but even Japanese Nambus, anything could get their hands on. Afterwards, I’d get letters of praise from the fashion show organizers saying how much I’d added to their presentation; little did they know what I’d been doing after their show” (Barton, 1992).
“Those Zionist gunrunners could best be called ideological mercenaries. They had a sense of, ‘Well, what I’m doing may not make a hell of a lot of difference, but at least I’m doing what I know best.’ Many seemed more concerned about refining and perfecting innovative weapons technology they were experimenting with than who their new relay or explosive was blowing up, though. I met Zionists that were right out of European prisons–not Nazi concentration camps, other prisons–that had lines of bullet scars up the backs of their legs from machine gun fire. By that time they were sort of ambivalent about the Nazis. Many of them had been decorated in World War I on the side of Germany, then fought in Spain against Germany, only to form dubious alliances with Nazis against the British in Palestine, then were fighting to affirm the new state of Israel. There was always a lot of that–more than people have, until recently, even wanted to hear. There’s a book called Zionism in the Age of the Dictators that confirms many of my suspicions about exactly what was going on between Zionism and Nazi Germany” (Barton, 1992).
“I felt a culmination of that whole episode in my life many years later, shortly after The Satanic Bible came out. I met with Assaf Dayan, actor son of Israel’s legendary Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, and he was glowing about the book, agreed with every in it. He said it was exactly the philosophy they practiced, were forced to practice, in modern Israel” (Barton, 1992).
Setian Judaic Freemasonic Satanism
“While LaVey simply saw Satan as a symbol of man’s egoism, Aquino believed in the objective reality of the devil. The theurgic rituals of the Temple of Set invoked the Prince of Darkness as a sinister supernatural power. On 21 June 1975 Michael Aquino received a direct revelation from Satan, later published as The Book of Coming Forth by Night (1985). This revelation presented the twentieth century as the beginning of a new satanic dispensation. Tribute was paid to Aleister Crowley’s earlier prophecy of a new Age of Horus characterized by power politics and mass destruction. Aquino’s ritual practices included Crowleyan magic and the conjuring of intelligent evil entities. Impressed by the power and conquests of the Third Reich, Aquino also flirted with the myth of Nazi occultism. While careful to reject anti-Semitism (many Temple of Set members were Jewish), Aquino regarded Heinrich Himmler as a satanic initiate. Inspired by the popular myth of the SS as a secret occult order, Aquino imagined the Wewelsburg as a major terrestrial focus of evil powers and conducted a satanic working there in 1981. Here at the black heart of Himmler’s SS empire, Aquino claimed a higher initiation, later published as The Wewelsburg Working (1982).7” (Joseph Farrel).
“The oldest known form of the Prince of Darkness, the archetype of isolate self-consciousness, is the Egyptian god Set, whose Priesthood can be traced to Predynastic times. Images of Set have been dated to ca. 3200 BCE, with astronomically-based estimates of inscriptions dating to 5000 BCE“.
“Set is a more complex figure than that of the Judeo-Christian Satan. Satan, the archetype of rebellion against cosmic order and stasis, may be the symbol for many people’s initial commitment to initiation, but this symbol is too closely linked to conventional religions and their moral codes to be an effective representation of the richness, subtlety, and complexity of the Left-Hand Path“.
“In ancient Egypt Set went through periods of immense popularity alternating with total denunciation. Set in the Predynastic and Archaic periods was an essentially positive deity introduced from the east as a god of the extension of existence. As such he was god of expanding borders and radical changes of being-particularly birth, circumcision/initiation, death in battle, and rebirth through the Opening of the Mouth ceremony. As early as the Second Dynasty he appears in royal iconography, on the serekh of Peribsen (“Hope of All Hearts”) and Khasekhemwy (“The Two Powers Appear”)“.
“Popular among easterners-his first cult site being Pelusium in the eastern Nile Delta-Set’s worship spread west and south to border regions, where he was identified with local gods of initiation. Examples of such cult sites are the oasis of Dakhleh where Set shared with the local god Igai the title “Lord of the Desert”, and the Libyan settlement of Ombos, wherein Set was identified with the local god Ash in the Second Dynasty“.
“Set’s worship as a circumpolar/stellar deity suffered a decline with the rise of solar worship in the Fourth Dynasty. The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the last early monuments connected with the idea of a Setian afterlife as well as a solar one. The Great Pyramid had a special air shaft for the king’s akh to fly to the star alpha Draconis, the pole star of Old Kingdom Egypt. Unlike the sun and the stars that appear to rise and set (mythologized as birth and death) the Pyramid Texts assert that the Ikhemw-sek, the “imperishable ones” or circumpolar stars, are the realm of the royal soul“.
“During the Middle Kingdom Set was reduced to a symbol of Upper Egypt in the iconography of the sema tawy and the Heb-Sed festival. It was around this time that Set was first blamed for the murder of Osiris, a Semitic god of agriculture whose cult arrived in the Third Dynasty“.
“No matter how “evil” Osirians might portray Set as being, his essential function-of going out and expanding the borders of existence and then returning that Chaotic energy to the center-persisted in Egyptian thought. It is the darkness that binds together the Egyptian light. The murder of Osiris is the destruction of the fetters of society, of accepting self-change and cultivation over the forces that lead to self-stagnation“.
“The Hyksos, foreigners who invaded and ruled Egypt during the Second Intermediate Period (Dynasties XIII-XVII, roughly 1785-1580 BCE) actively identified themselves with Set and established their capital at an ancient Setian site, Avaris. The Hyksos were great horsemen, and the horse (like the ass) was identified with Set. Indeed not until the Hyksos dynasties was the horse, which had been known in Egypt for at least the prior two centuries, portrayed in Egyptian art“.
“The second native blooming of Setian thinking may have begun in the Eighteenth Dynasty, but certainly it reached its peak in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Dynasties, when a family of Setian Priests from Tanis became the pharaonic line. During this time of expanding borders, Set was extraordinarily popular, as can be seen from pharaohs’ names such as Seti (“Set’s man”) and Setnakt (“Set is Mighty”). The cult of the stellar afterlife re-emerged: complex “astronomical ceilings” adorn the tombs of the pharaohs of this period-and of no other“.
“Two Setian texts survive from this period. First, the Tale of Two Brothers tells how Set (identified with the god Bata) undergoes a series of metamorphoses (Xeperu) that change him from a farmhand to a star in the Constellation of the Thigh (our “Big Dipper”). Thus Set represents the individual who through his own hard work, magical skill, and the use of the resistance of the world Becomes divine“.
“The second text is the Book of Knowing the Spiral Force of Ra and the Felling of Apep. This protective formula, which Rameses III, son of Setnakt, inscribed on certain border monuments, shows two Setian particularities. First, it recounts how an unnamed god comes into being in the psychic (subjective) realm as the god Xepera. Second, the spell gives the magician one of the powers of Set: the ability to slay Apep, the dragon of delusion. Set again serves as a role model, in that each Setian seeks to end delusions in life“.
“With the coming of the Twenty-Second Dynasty, Egypt entered its long decline. Set became a tremendously unpopular deity. His worship ceased everywhere except the oases and the city of Thebes. His cult was absorbed into others, primarily that of Montu, warlord of Thebes. The negative aspects of isolation and destruction were emphasized. Set-heh, the god of the void called the future, became a scapegoat in rites of execration-foreshadowing the role of the Satan in the Judeo-Christian West“.
“The third blooming came with the arrival of the Greeks in Egypt. It is in this period that Hellenic notions of independence and self-worth began to revive operant and initiatory aspects of the New Kingdom Set cult. The success of Graeco-Egyptian magic, despite Roman persecution, saw an expansion of both the philosophical and magical aspects of this tradition as far north as Britain“.
“The Third Century of the Common Era marked the height of Setian Hermeticism. But with the imposition of Christianity as the Roman imperial religion, individualism was again despised. Egyptian (Coptic) Christianity identified Set with Satan, and he almost disappeared as a figure in Egyptian magic“.
“The fourth blooming of Setian thought began in the nineteenth century with certain archaeological discoveries, but became explicit in 1975 with the reconsecration and founding of the modern Temple of Set and proclamation of the Word of the AEon of Set. Xeper< (kheffer) is an Egyptian verb which means “Come Into Being” or “Become”. This word reflects the consciousness-worshiping nature of our religion and the source of ultimate responsibility in all things-the self“.

Thelemic community Communitas Saturni believe that “In its higher octave, Saturn is the Guardian of the Threshold at the last frontier to the realm of the divine. In this capacity, Saturn is equivalent to Lucifer as the Light Bearer = Prometheus who brought the fire to mankind because he really loved humanity in contrast to god Zeus. In its lowest octave, Saturn is equated with Satan; is then seducer, persisting within the ego and a bar to resolve karmic entanglements” (Communitas Saturni, 2014).
So what we have is Judaism which came first, then Freemasonry, then Christianity, then Catholicism and then Satanism, they all came from Judaism, without Judaism none of these religions would have been created.
