Hail, Conceal, and never Reveal
The following is the oath taken in the 1. degree Entered Apprentice. This is the oath everyone takes to join the Free Masonry. Pay close attention to the curses pronounced over them as they take this oath.
“…Most solemnly and sincerely promise and swear that I will always hail, ever conceal, and never reveal, any of the arts, parts or points of the hidden mysteries of ancient Freemasonry… All this I most solemnly, sincerely promise and swear, with a firm and steadfast resolution to perform. The same, without any mental reservation or secret evasion of mine whatever binding myself under no less a penalty than that of having my throat cut across, my tongue torn out by its roots and being buried in the rough sand of the sea at a low water mark where the tide ebbs and flows twice in twenty-four hours, should I ever knowingly or willingly violate my solemn oath and obligation as an Entered Apprentice Mason. So help me God.”
If this doesn’t put fear into the person then perhaps the ritual aspect of being blindfolded, a rope (noose) placed around their neck, and a spear or sword across their chest will. The purpose of the ritual along with the verbal curses is to have a lasting mental and emotional impact on the individual. In each level or degree there are curses spoken by the new member, and usually some form of ritual.
In the 2 Degree Fellow Craft the oath is “…having my left breast torn open, my heart and vitals taken from thence and thrown over my left shoulder and carried to the valley of Jehosaphat.” The result of these curses can bring premature death due to the heart and lungs, as well as chest and circulatory problems.
Remember this member may be your father, grandfather, or great grandfather. They may be looking at the benefits of joining this organization but they are not looking at the consequences of curses spoken over them and their family, as you will see.
The scriptures says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” Proverbs 18:21 R.A. Vukovich in her book “Redeemed from the curse” states, “The main channel that blessings, and curses are transmitted is by words. Those words can be spoken, written, or merely dwelt upon.”
“Proverb 23:7 says, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…” This verse is usually mentioned in reference that you are a product of your thinking; you become what you think. However, you can also become what you speak or what is spoken over you.
These men who enter into Free Masonry are entering into a pact. This pact is not with God as some would believe, neither is it with man. This pact is with spiritual entities that do not play according to your rules. In order to become a member you must sign a covenant with your blood. The member has now entered into a blood covenant.
A blood covenant means that two covenant individuals share such a close relationship with each other that all they possess in this life is available to each other upon demand. A blood covenant is not just between you and the other party but includes your family bloodline. Another words, this means those ancestors who made a blood covenant and swore curses over themselves also included you, and your children from generation to generations in that oath. If a covenant is broken, the punishment is severe. An example of this is in Deut. 28:15-68. God explains what will happen to you if you break covenant. That is why there are blessings for keeping covenant and curses for breaking covenant.
This first rite curses affects the eyesight, and emotions, fear of darkness, confusion and fear of light and noises. The fear of death and fear of being stabbed and heart attacks caused by the sword or spear held over the chest.
Other curses related to this degree include allergies, asthma, glandular problems, speechlessness, and having no voice, death, and division in the family. Infirmities includes; physical weakness (especially in older people), knees and hips of women and infirmities of the uterus.
I am not speaking about one or two symptoms, which can be contributed to numerous things. I am speaking of a combination of these symptoms operating in your life or family members. Do you or anyone in your family have several of these symptoms, and can trace your ancestral bloodline to Free Masonry?
I know a Christian lady who does home care. One of her clients is an elderly lady who is tormented daily with a fear of the dark and of “Them” coming to take her away. The caregiver would pray for this woman constantly, but couldn’t understand why she was in such fear and spiritual torment. One day we spoke with her about Free Masonry, she informed me that her client was very high up in the Eastern Star (Women’s branch of Free Masonry}. Now the caregiver understood that certain curses spoken over her client were now tormenting her mind and soul. It is not that this poor soul divulged any information about the organization, but the higher the degree the more that is required of you.
Remember, covenant occurs in the initiation of the first degree. So even it you or your ancestors got out after just the first degree, you are still under the blood covenant…To be continued
