THE F.A.T.A.L. FLAW
"They he brought me to the gate of the LORD's house which was toward the
north; and behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz." Ezekiel 8:14
Since 1868, thousands of decent Christian women have innocently taken part
in pagan rites around an altar to the gods of witchcraft. They have been
deceived into bowing the knee to gods so vile and ancient that even the
pagan priests of Egypt blotted them out from their history. Women who
would blush with shame at the mention of satanism have been led to Satan's
altar by people they trusted. Often their own husbands, who were given
stewardship over them by Jesus Christ have violated that trust by leading
them into paths of idolatry.
Alarming accusations! Yet this altar of idolatry is nestled right in the
bosom of Christianity - The Order of the Eastern Star! Much has been
written on the spiritual dangers of Freemasonry. Yet the "Star," is
The Star is known as "Adoptive" Masonry. This means mothers, daughters,
wives and sisters of Freemasons my be spiritually "adopted" into the
Masonic order. Hence, they come under its spiritual authority. Now since
Lucifer is the acknowledged god of Masonry, what does this "adoption" mean
for the woman who joins the Star? She is submitting herself to the
spiritual headship of Lucifer? Even a Christian woman is surrendering
herself, however innocently, to the gods of Masonry - and this will give
Satan an entry point into her life, regardless of how devout she is.
When anyone, man or woman, becomes a Christian they are adopted into the
family of God (Rom.8:15-17). Yet when they kneel at a Masonic altar and
take those oaths, they are entering Satan's dominion, whether then know it
or not. This opens the door to all manner of problems. We have dealt with
women who entered the Star and then found their nights troubled by strange
dreams and demonic activity. As soon as they repented of their involvement
in the Star and renounced their oaths in the name of Jesus, the oppression
This is why we are told by Paul to avoid all contact with idolatry because
of what it can bring to our very door: "Do not be yoked together with
unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or
what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there
between Christ and Belial? ...Therefore come out from them and be
separate, says the Lord." - 2 Cor.6:14-15,17.
HOOFPRINTS ARE EVERYWHERE!
We need not look far into the Star to find evidence of Satan's presence.
His hoofprints are everywhere! To begin with the most obvious, we look at
the "signet" of the Order, which is an inverted five-pointed start- called
a pentagram in witchcraft. The fact is that this inverted pentagram is so
deeply and unmistakably associated with satanism that many witches fear to
use it for fear of the demons they attract. This star is used to draw down
the kingdom of Satan into manifestation on earth! (MAN, MYTH AND MAGIC,
This star can be drawn with the goat's-head inside. It then becomes the
badge of the Satanist, the infamous Goat of Mendes! This goat's name is
Baphomet, and it is the blasphemous god of the 12th Century Knights Templar
(the ancestors of today's Freemasons).
Here is this sinister star, exalted as the very centerpiece of the Chapter!
Not only is the star inverted, by the colorful attributes of the 5 points
are even the correct colors for the four magical elements, air (blue),
earth (yellow), water (green) and fire (red); plus the fifth point, the
bottom, represents "akasha," the spiritual power of the "astral plane"
which is the fusion of all the other "rays" of the star into white.
It is evident that the person who designed the Eastern Star had more than a
passing knowledge of black magic. That, in itself should make Christians
nervous. The Bible forbids any involvement with sorcery:
"Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the
fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in
witchcraft, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. -
Worship of starts is especially condemned:
The houses in Jerusalem and those of the kings of Judah will be defiled
like this place, Topheth - all the houses where they burned incense on the
roofs to all starry hosts and poured out drink offerings to other gods. -
He (King Manassah) built altars to all the starry hosts. He sacrificed his
own son in the fire, practiced sorcery and divination, and consulted
mediums and spiritists. -2 Kings 21:5-6
Please note the grievous sins associated with star-worship. "Tophet" is a
place where during the days of deepest sin in Israel, parents sacrificed
their children to the god Molech! It is a "place of burning" which later
on came to be known as Gehenna, the word often used by Jesus for hell!
(EERDMANS' CONCISE BIBLE HANDBOOK, P.203). Manassah sacrificed his own son
in the fire!
If you lay out a satanic star and offer devotions at it, the moral and
spiritual consequences are ominous! You may say that you have been in the
Star for years and you are still a good member of your church and that you
aren't making sacrifices of your children - but think!
Are our children not being sacrificed every day through abortion? Are not
the generations reared under the influence of the Star the first mothers to
lay their babies willingly upon the altars of the abortion clinic by the
millions? Are we not seeing the dividends of this pagan worship in the
corruption of the very ideals of motherhood? Are we not witnessing the
moral destruction of whole generations of children because of the mothers'
participation in these "harmless rituals"?
Perhaps it is too much to blame the moral decay of our children on the
Star, but remember how in the Bible, the people of Israel kept falling into
disaster because they allowed a ""little" idolatry to creep into their
culture. If you wish to corrupt a culture, corrupt its mothers - and the
spiritual leprosy of Masonry is doing just that!
"HIS STAR IN THE EAST"
At this point you may protest and say that the Star is based on biblical
stories and that the star of the altar is intended to represent the "star
in the east" mention in Mt.2:2 which heralded the birth of Jesus. You may
point out that the motto of the order is: "We have seen his star in the
East and are come to worship Him." This sounds very pious, but actually it
First of all, the star of Bethlehem could not have been an "eastern star,"
since most biblical expositors agree that the magi came form the east, and
that therefor a star over Judea would be in the western sky to their
viewpoint. Some scholars feel that the passage means that the magi were
"in the east" when they saw the star - others say that the term "in the
east" can also be translated alternately as "seen when it rose," meaning
that they saw the star as it rose.
STRONG'S CONCORDANCE, in fact, gives the primary meaning of the Greek word
there, Anatole, as a rising of light; with "eastern" as only a figurative
meaning. VINE'S EXPOSITORY DICTIONARY concurs. The "Eastern Star" cannot
be the star of Bethlehem! Then whose star is it?
In reality, the Eastern Star is a term among sorcerers for the star Sirius.
(See CITY OF REVELATION by John Michell, p.4) This fits perfectly because
in black magic, the inverted pentagram is the sign of Sirius or Set. (See
ALEISTER CROWLEY AND THE HIDDEN GOD by Kenneth Grant, p.12). But who is
Sirius, or Set?
Sirius is the "Dog Star", the first star to rise in the east in the
latitudes of Egypt. It is sacred to Set, the satanic figure of Egyptian
religion. The Egyptians celebrated Sirius' ascendancy in the skies with
horrible, obscene rituals! In fact, the rites of Sirius or Set were so
debased that later rulers of Egypt deface their temples and obelisks and
tried to drive them from the land (See Grant, pp.70-71).
"THE F.A.T.A.L FLAW"
When the ladies of the Star say, "We have seen His Star in the East and are
come to worship Him.", who is "Him?" Is it the Jesus of Calvary or is it
some dogheaded, obscence god named Set? What does the evidence tell us?
The Biblical elements in the Star ceremony are suspect to say the least -
based as they are upon dubious actions and mythical additions to the Bible.
Yet the occult elements in the Star's symbolism are obvious for anyone to
see! The Eastern Star is not the star which heralds Jesus, but the star
which heralds Set - the most ancient form of Satan in recorded history!
But you may say that you don't believe in Set, and that you believe that
you are performing pious exercises. You say that you thought the Star was
a order which worships the true God. But my dear friends, every person
believes that the god they worship is the true God. The important they is
that if you are a Christian, the Bible tells you to "avoid even the
appearance of evil." -1 Thess. 5:22 and to "keep yourselves from idols." -1
Jn.5:21. How can you keep yourself from idols when every other week or so
you gather around the most ancient and evil idol in human history?
Is your presence in the Chapter really pleasing to the God who thundered
from Mt. Sinai and said, "I am the Lord your God..you shall have no other
gods before me." You can no longer protest innocence. You know the evil
origins of the symbols of the star and you know that the Lord Jesus forbade
the taking of oaths of any kind (Mt.5:33-37). What more do you need than
the knowledge that you are breaking the commands of the Gentle Master Whom
That is the F.A.T.A.L. flaw of the Star. The very term "cabalistic word"
refers to an ancient system of Jewish magic--the Quabalah! The Star's
"word" may be "Fairest Among Thousands Altogether Lovely," but it is asking
you to choose between the star of the evil and One who is your beloved
Bridegroom, "...dazzling and ruddy, outstanding among ten thousand." -
Cant.5:10 Flee the headship and authority of Satan, and return to the arms
of Him who should be your Head, your Bridegroom, and your Savior, Jesus
