These are the Truth about the Illuminati
Clarity and Accuracy are Necessary
Various proponents of "conspiracy theories" have attempted to distort and misrepresent real Freemasonry and the authentic Knights Templar that were dedicated to the Glory of God, and in Service to the Great Presence of the "I AM" in all of Life! Great confusion has especially been perpetuated when the term "Illuminati" has been used.
"Illuminati" means "Enlightened Ones" and had originally referred to those individuals who devoted themselves to Divine Wisdom and Christ Illumination, such as the Ascended Masters and the unascended members of the Great Brotherhood of Light (also called the Great White Brotherhood). Such individuals have accepted for their Life experiences the Directing Intelligence and Illumining Presence of the Mighty "I AM". In many of the Theosophical writings of the 19th century, the term "Illuminati" was used according to its purest and original definition. However, in today's common parlance, this term is usually used by conspiracy theorists to refer to the "psuedo-Illuminati".
These "psuedo-Illuminati" consider themselves a "Global Elite" who know what's best for the world. They want to build a socialistic, utopian society of Anti-Christ in the place of the Kingdom of Heaven This involves the manipulation of forces of selfishness and hatred - often apparently very opposite to outer stated goals. Manipulation of men with atheistic and damning concepts of dialectical materialism may be attempted at the same time as manipulation of extreme hateful "Islamic" fundalmentalist terrorists (who are betrayers of the true religion of Islam) - as well as "Christian" fanatical extremists.
"Psuedo-Illuminati" have infiltrated major global banks, multinational companies, drug companies, global media, armament companies, the world market in hard drugs, the security services and institutions of governments. They are allied with the "Black Brotherhood" which is composed of the forces of greed and every force of tyranny. This would include the evil terrorist activities, operations, networks and funding of foreign terrorist organizations based in Africa, the Middle East, and central and southeast Asia.
This may also include Al-Qa'ida, which participated in the attack on America and Freedom on September 11, 2001 (along with those behind the scenes who may have seen this as an opportunity to further their own ends). Al-Qa'ida has an operational reach that stretches around the globe, and has been successful at maintaining a high level of security and secrecy. Yet Al-Qa'ida as an umbrella organization, is but one group within a network of radical Islamic groups that stretches from Cairo to Manila, from Kabul to Algiers. Terrorist groups and operatives are based in Europe, Africa, Asia, and America.
The "psuedo-Illuminati" want a world government and army, a world currency and centralised global financial dictatorship and control. They want micro-chipped people and a society based on constant surveillance of all kinds at all times. And they want a frightened, docile, subservient, people who give their power away to the “authorities” who can save them from what they have been manipulated to fear. The establishment of a one-world government has been called the "New World Order" and now "Global Governance". Of course in the drive to control all the people and resources on the planet, they also enrich themselves along the way.
These "psuedo-Illuminati" are motivated to pursue human power and domination at all costs. They have entrenched themselves in the governments and financial institutions of the world. They are not usually connected by outer organizational ties or bloodlines, but are merely "connected" by their lower human consciousness motivations.
Not Connected with Freemasonry
The "psuedo-Illuminati" are not connected with Freemasonry, and they were discredited by Freemasonry even during the lifetime of George Washington. Inspired by the materialistic infiltrators of Freemasonry in European countries back in the 1770s, they are erroneously pointed to by conspiracy theorists as the cause of all modern ills throughout the world.
In fairness to all concerned, it should be made absolutely clear that the organization referred to as the "Illuminati" was historically a separate organization entirely, and in no way connected with either Freemasonry or Rosicrucianism. The group of men who formed the so-called "Illuminati" in Germany did try in various ways to associate their strange organization with both Rosicrucianism and Freemasonry.
