We are not the ministry of the LivePrayer and Bill
Keller but we have posted this devotional about Mitt Romney because we
felt it was more than urgent that this information is passed on to the
Christian community. We want to be true to our calling as a watchman on
the wall and this article is a must read for every believer in Christ who
loves the Lord and our nation. Please read the article prayerfully.
DAILY DEVOTIONAL FRIDAY JUNE 29, 2007
(Matthew 7:21, Titus 1:16, 2 Timothy 3:5, Hosea 6:6, James 3:10)
***THANKS TO WORLDNETDAILY! Joseph Farah and his news site www.worldnetdaily.com ran a
good story on Liveprayer regarding the hypocrisy of Barry Lynn asking for
the IRS to revoke the tax exempt status of Liveprayer, yet HIS OWN CHURCH
endorses Barak Obama by having his speak at their national convention!
Here is a link to the article:
***TODAY I AM ADDRESSING A MAJOR STRONGHOLD IN THE CHURCH. THIS
DEVOTIONAL WILL EXPOSE ONE OF THE GREAT CULTS IN THE CHURCH AND WILL BE
MET WITH TREMENDOUS HOSTILITY BY MANY. PRAY AS THE LIGHT OF TRUTH SHINES
ON THE DARKNESS THAT IS THE CULT OF FREEMASONRY!
When this Devotional was originally aired, I was inundated with outraged
Masons that I would have the audacity to call their secret society what it
is, a CULT. I was prepared for the onslaught because I knew it has been a
very deep stronghold IN THE CHURCH. Joe Smith, founder of the Mormon cult
was a Mason. He not only hijacked God's Word to write his blasphemous
Book of Mormon, but incorporated the secret rites of Freemasonry in his
cult. All top leaders in the Mormon cult were Masons! That means
Christian men involved in this cult are in a blood-oath relationship, an
unholy alliance with men in the Mormon cult.
The fact is, the ONLY oath we should ever take is to Jesus Christ. A top
level Mason is called "worshipful master," when Jesus Christ is the ONLY
Master we are to worship. Lastly, Freemasonry operates in secret. Only
evil operates in secrecy, in the darkness, while the things of God operate
in the light. I am praying for those who have taken an oath to be part of
this cult, this secret society, to leave immediately. As Jesus clearly
stated, you CAN'T serve two masters!
Freemasonry IS a cult!!! The two people that God used to help shape my
early faith in the Lord besides my parents were my father's mom and dad.
Grandpa and Grandma Keller were lifetime members of a little United
Methodist church outside of Columbus, Ohio. They never missed Sunday
service, Grandpa was an usher, Grandma sang in the choir, and they were at
the church for about every event that was held. As a young boy growing
up, I spent two weeks every summer with them and their church was a big
part of my time there. Grandpa Keller was also a Mason and Grandma Keller
was a member of the Eastern Star. It is hard to imagine my dear, Godly
grandparents were cult members, but that is exactly what they were.
Freemasonry and Christianity are incompatible. While most see it as a
wonderful social, civic, and philanthropic organization, in reality it is
a secret religious society. Tracing its origins back to the stone masons
who built Solomon's Temple, the modern day Masonic movement first appeared
in Great Britain in 1717, and was first seen in the United States in
Philadelphia in 1730. The terminology and symbolism of Masonry seems to
come mostly from the actual craft of stonemasonry during the Middle Ages.
The "free" in Masonry probably came from the "freestones" (stones that
could be cut without splitting) with which Mason's worked. Stonemasons had
three classifications for workers practicing their craft: Apprentice,
Fellow Craft, and Master Mason. This is also the terminology used for the
first three degrees in Masonry today.
Masonry is not based on the Bible (referred to as "The Great Light"), but
on the Kabala, the ultimate source of Masonic beliefs (Morals and Dogma),
which is a medieval book of mysticism and magic. Masons require one to
believe in God to be a member, but the candidate is never required to say
what god he believes in. Masons commonly refer to their deity as the
"Great Architect of the Universe" (G.A.O.T.U.) or the Supreme Being. The
name of Christ is seldom referred to in Masonic literature, apparently due
to Masons not wanting to offend their non-Christian members. Freemasonry
does not believe that Jesus Christ is God, nor that salvation is available
only through Him. The reality of sin in the Biblical sense is denied.
Masons think that any "shortcomings" can be overcome by greater
enlightenment. Because they deny the reality of sin, Masons see no need
for salvation in the Biblical sense. They see salvation as a step-by-step
enlightenment, which comes through initiation into the Masonic degrees and
Most Masons join Freemasonry to be part of what they view as a
prestigious, socially influential organization. However, their society is
based on misrepresentations and false explanations. The symbolic physical
penalties advocated by the Freemasons are violent and murderous. No
faithful Christian can keep Freemason oaths, which endorse the death
penalty for oneself and require members to persecute traitors to the
organization. Oaths also obligate lodge members to protect lodge criminals
and keep their secrets. The fact is, like in all cults, most involved in
Freemasonry have NO CLUE what they really believe in or the satanic roots
of Freemasonry. To this day, I firmly believe my Grandfather saw it as
nothing more than a social organization, as did my Grandmother who was
part of the Eastern Star, the women's organization of Freemasonry.
When was the last time you heard your pastor preach against this cult?
Let me answer that, NEVER. A 1991 survey by the Southern Baptist
Convention Sunday School Board found that 14% of SBC pastors and 18% of
SBC deacon board chairs were Masons; it is also estimated that SBC members
comprise 37% of total U.S. lodge membership. A 2000 updated SBC report
found that over 1,000 SBC pastors are Masons. As you get into the more
liberal denominations, I am sure those percentages are even higher.
I love you and care about you so much. Satan is a master of deception and
knows how to draw people into his traps of destruction. Nobody can ever
deny the wonderful charitable causes the Masons (that includes the
Shriners which are 33rd degree Masons) are involved in. But the Mafia
also gives lots of money to charity. There is a local strip club that
raises hundreds of thousands of dollars every year for a children's
hospital. Just because an organization does some "good works," that does
not make it an organization that you should be a member of. Jesus Christ
gave us the organization to be part of that is to do good works, it is
called THE CHURCH!
Know that I am praying for you today. I have no doubt that many who are
reading this message today are in the Masons or the Eastern Star. I want
you to pray seriously today about LEAVING those organizations.
Freemasonry is NOT of God, but is opposed to God. I already know that
this message today will cause some short term hardships to Liveprayer by
those who will stop supporting this ministry because I have spoken out on
this cult. But my job is to share the truth of God's Word with you each
day and shine the light on sin and expose deception. Man does not sustain
this ministry each month, God does, and I do not have to answer to any
man, but one day stand before God!
***Why do you think most have never heard this preached from the pulpit at
your church? Too many pastors make the choice to stay silent so they
don't upset some of their top givers, letting people blindly fall into a
cult like Freemasonry.
Jesus said that you can't serve two masters, you cannot serve God and also
be a Mason. You need to make a choice today WHICH master you are going to
serve, the cult of Freemasonry or God.
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
