It has rightly been said that The United States of America is the only country in the world to have a wholly Christian foundation, based on the Pilgrim Fathers of the 18th century, and a constitution which bears out the faith of those “fathers”. The very seal of the United States has the words “IN GOD WE TRUST”. When did this transpire? It began in 1776, on 4th July, with just thirteen states in the initial union. Everything was set to go with the possibility of a great Christian nation being founded, a nation which could influence the world in a truly wonderful manner. But something else was there at the inauguration, something that derived from the pit of hell, and sought to put its stamp on the New World almost before it had time to consider itself a nation. Let’s investigate.
It was in the same year, 1776, and on May 1st, that a long way away from America in Bavaria a secret society was founded by Adam Weishaupt, Professor of Canon Law at theUniversity of Ingolstadt. Weishaupt had formerly been a Jesuit, but had come to hate the movement. The aim of this secret society, known as The Illuminati, was to replace Christianity by a religion of reason. By 1780 there were some 2000 adherents to the society, many of them being notable members of the public, and having considerable support from Freemasonry. However, in 1785 the Bavarian Government banned the movement, andWeishaupt had to go into exile. This transpired because the Government found secret documents belonging to the organisation, which betrayed their schemes. The Secret Society went underground, but never disappeared. One should read, for example, the article entitled“Illuminism and the French Revolution” in the Edinburgh Review, No 417, pages 35-60. (1906) It becomes clear that the principles of Illuminism were the secret underlying forces that sent France into revolution in 1789, at the time known as “The Enlightenment”, but which, from a Christian viewpoint should be classed as the onset of deepest darkness.
But one may ask, so what? Can there be any connection between the Illuminati and the Constitution of the Unites States, just two months apart in time? And the answer sadly, is Yes. Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and John Adams worked together on the format of the Declaration of Independence, but Jefferson was accepted as the chief architect. AndJefferson was in contact with Weishaupt, and although he disagreed with him on several of the protocols of the Illuminati’s “New World Order”, he did support the idea of a republic with a government that was strong on REASON rather than FAITH.
Franklin and Adams allowed Jefferson, their Masonic brother, to complete the document alone. And although not all the facts can be dragged out of masonic darkness, someoneauthorised a small group of “illuminated” masons to design a seal for the new republic of 13 states. Six years passed before the design of the seal was completed and unofficially adopted by the predominantly Masonic Congress of the United States on 10th June 1782. It was to be called “The Great Seal of the Unites States of America”. It was cast in two metallic plaques.Both were delivered to Jefferson on 17th June 1782 while he stood in dim candlelight in hisMonticello drawing room in Virginia. They were presented to him by a hooded figure who entered the room quietly from the garden carrying the plaques in a red velvet bag.
The format of these plaques is now common knowledge, inasmuch as they are found on every “greenback” dollar bill. (See page 23) The pyramid with the all-seeing eye as the capstone, and the Latin words ANNUIT COEPTIS NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM, meaning“Announcing the arrival of a New World Order,” was wholly the work of the Illuminati and the Freemasons, and has become ensconced from the very beginning on the Great Seal. Much more could be said about the meaning of all the symbolism, but that is not our present purpose. Let it suffice to say that Satan was at Jefferson’s right hand at the time of America’s Independence, and all the subsequent history of that great nation must be viewed in the light of that fact. Mixture is always Satan’s work.
Just before the Seal was revealed in 1782, came the great darkness of May 19th 1780, which covered a huge area of eastern U.S.A., and included the States of New Hampshire, Vermont,Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, and parts of Maine and New Jersey. I began at about 11 a.m. and only cleared by 2 a.m. the following morning. It engendered fear amongst many of the people, and there was a widespread belief that the Day of Judgement had arrived.
We believe this was God’s sign of total disapproval of what had been done. The Church of Jesus Christ was founded upon the apostles and prophets of the early church, Jesus Christ Himself being the Chief Corner Stone (Capstone in the Greek), but the Seal of the Unites States, with its all-seeing eye, is based on one of the most diabolical organisations this world has ever known. Though the Illuminati is hardly mentioned in the news today, its teachings have been proliferated amongst many other movements, and are now seen to be emerging almost everywhere, especially in the New Age Movement, which we shall investigate in the next chapter. Truly it can be said that when God was being honoured at the inauguration of a vast new Christian Nation, the “good seed” was hardly planted before Satan planted his “tare.”
