ShinarDirectivesmall Freemasonry

The origin of Freemasonry, according to Masonic scholars, focuses on two theories:

  1. Nimrod was the first Mason and established the order.
  2. The Knights Templar and their secrets evolved into modern-day Freemasonry.

I have been asked over the years which theory is correct. The answer is both. The seeds of Freemasonry were planted in Babylon, watered by Egypt, and nurtured over the millennia by the mystery religions. And I do not believe I need to convince those who would read my book that Freemasonry is esoteric and part of the mystery religions. The cursory readings of Albert Pike or Manly P. Hall (or even just the names of their works) would convince any open-minded believer. However, I will say this for any member of the Blue Lodge that might stumble upon this work: The oath and ceremony you went through to enter the Lodge is word for word and step for step the same ritual used to become a witch within any coven.[ii] (So which came first, the coven or the Lodge?) Again, the words of the apostle Paul are more relevant today than when he wrote them long ago:

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Therefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,  And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:14–18, emphasis added)


The Scope of Freemasonry

We need to understand that Freemasonry literally covers the globe. As the influence of Europe and later America began to swell internationally, Freemasonry spread throughout the world. It is interesting to note that Skull and Bones (an elite Masonic organization) member George W. Bush went to war against 33rd-degree Freemason and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)-trained operative Osama bin Laden.[iii] This has led many to believe that America was behind the attack on 9/11/01. I believe their scope of vision is too small. Every bit of information I write about in The Shinar Directive including the reoccurrence of the number eleven (which is very significant in both Masonic and esoteric workings) points to the fact that it was the work of the Luciferian Elite. The tragedy of 9/11 was simply one piece of a much larger puzzle to facilitate a New World Order (and not, as many have postulated, to move America toward neoconservatism).

Masonic Lodges worldwide are the recruiting grounds for the Elite in search of new ground troops. Freemasons who have the temperament and belief system for the luciferian work are shuffled off to the side and then brought into separate circles of influence within the Masonic system. The average members of the Lodge labor within their communities and become the outer layer of protection for the occult core. Those members become part of local churches, civic organizations, businesses, and political parties. Whether or not they realize it, they are indeed connected to those within the darker circles of Freemasonry, with a stronger cord than the tow that was originally placed around their necks. I have mentored aspirants of the gospel ministry now for more than thirty years, and I have counseled students regarding the stifling of revival in their ministries by certain members of the board or congregation. Many times those individuals were Freemasons. I remember a particular case in the early 1990s: God began moving in the ministry of one of our students. During a vacation Bible school, he saw nearly seventy children accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior within a two-week period. Any Christian would have been overjoyed by such an event. Within less than a week after this event, he was fired from his position as pastor. He later discovered that most of board members were Masons and active members of the local Lodge. Needless to say, he was dismayed and devastated by the actions against him.

The definitive work on the Skull and Bones is the book America’s Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of Skull and Bones by Anthony C. Sutton. I would also like to mention that my colleagues at Defender Publishing, Terry Cook and Dr. Thomas Horn, provided a noteworthy summary of the Order in their book, Beast Tech. It is not my desire to replicate their fine work. I would prefer to examine the Order through the lens of a Christian educator and focus on the unfinished work of Nimrod.

The Order was founded in 1833 at Yale University by General William Huntington Russell and Alphonso Taft.[iv] The Order is known by several names: Brotherhood of Death, Skull and Bones, Bones, the Order, and Chapter 322. The Order is a chapter of a German secret society that is linked directly to the Illuminati. This secret society is dominated by several old-line American Elite families as well as new wealth that has existed from 1833 to the present day.

  • Whitney Family
  • Stimson Family
  • Perkins Family
  • Taft Family
  • Wadsworth Family
  • Gilman Family
  • Payne Family
  • Davison Family
  • Pillsbury Family
  • Sloane Family
  • Weyerhaeuser Family
  • Harriman Family
  • Rockefeller Family
  • Lord Family
  • Bundy Family
  • Phelps Family [v]

Each year, fifteen new members are accepted into the Order from the group of junior-year students at Yale University. I believe the number of candidates is important, and it shows a philosophical link to the Illuminati: There are three groups of five candidates. Weishaupt’s Law of Fives seems to govern the activities of the Order. Members of Elite families seem to be guaranteed membership. Other exceptional students at Yale can be offered membership if their particular skill set and education would prove beneficial to the plans of the Order.

The power and reach of the Order is tremendous. Sutton writes:

Above all, the Order is powerful, unbelievably powerful. If the reader will persist and examine the evidence to be presented—which is overwhelming—there is no doubt his view of the world will suddenly come sharply into focus, with almost frightening clarity.[vi]

After researching the Order, I have concluded that it is a more powerful and extremely exclusive Masonic Lodge reserved for the American Elite. If the local Masonic Lodges are for the gathering and indoctrination of the ground troops, then the Order is the Illuminati’s war college here in the United States. (Its sister institution is Oxford University, which we will look at shortly.) It is in the Order that the high-ranking officers of the Elite’s army are prepared for various assignments worldwide. At the beginning of his book, Sutton places a quote from a Yale student in 1873:

We offer no objections to their existing clan. No one disputes with them this right, we question but the plan on which they act, —that only he who wears upon his breast their emblem, he for every post shall be considered best.[vii]

Even in 1873, a degree from Yale was not enough for the most powerful posts in the United States. Skull and Bones members were given strategic positions in every field: government, financing, foreign affairs, religion, and the corporate world. Their members became chiefs who established policies in literally every aspect of American life. Sutton declares that “the Order has penetrated or been the dominant influence in sufficient policy, research, and opinion making organizations that it determines the basic direction of American society” (emphasis added).[viii]


One of the ways the Order gains control over various groups or movements is to ensure that the FIRST president, chairman, or main leader is a member.[ix] It is the first leader of any organization who sets the foundational agenda and philosophy maintained throughout its lifecycle. Having the highest level of leadership in these organizations also allows freedom to embed other members into key positions. Since this networking and embedding of members have been going on since the 1830s, it is easy to see how the Order controls nearly every aspect of our society.

This penetration of the Order includes all Protestant denominations. Sutton writes:

About 2 percent of the Order is in the Church (all Protestant denominations), although this percentage has declined in recent years. A key penetration is the Union Theological Seminary, affiliated with Columbia University in New York. This Seminary, a past subject of investigation for Communist infiltration, has close links to the Order.[x]

Is it any wonder why Protestant denominations have been slowly moving away from true biblical standards in both beliefs and moral standards over the past hundred years? The Order has actively been working in the background to produce this backslidden state!

The Order’s Involvement in Education

Sutton goes into great detail about how the Order perverted education in America. Although not an Order member, American psychologist G. Stanley Hall was the agent of choice for the Order to use to infect the education of our children.

Hall was a student at Union Theological Seminary and was highly influenced by Henry B. Smith. This is where his indoctrination and training appears to have begun. After graduation, Smith was financially broke, but was encouraged by Smith to go to Europe to study experimental psychology under Wilhelm Wundt. Another member of the Order contributed one thousand dollars to help finance his trip. (In those days, this was a very large sum of money.)

While in Europe, Hall studied under Wilhelm Wundt at the University of Leipzig. At the time, he was also highly influenced by the philosophies of Hegel (think Hegelian Dialectic). His training in Europe lasted about twelve years.

Upon returning home, Smith was again flat broke. This financial setback did not last long, as the Order had plans for him. One day, the president of Harvard showed up, out of the blue, at his home and invited him to lecture at Harvard on education. Then, in 1881, to his surprise, Johns Hopkins University offered him the Chair of Professor of Psychology and Pedagogy (Education). We also find that Smith was not the only one being groomed by the Order. Sutton provides the following chart of where students of Wundt were placed and the number of doctoral graduates their efforts generated.


Just imagine the impact that 1,331 experts at the doctoral level with training specifically tailored to the agenda of the Elite can have upon the American educational system.

All were trained with concepts that originated at the University of Leipzig. Why is this so important? Wilhelm Wundt was a pioneer in psychological conditioning. We are all familiar with Ivan Pavlov and his experimental conditioning of a dog to salivate when a bell rang. Pavlov was a student of Wundt. These men and their doctoral graduates brought conditional training into the elementary and secondary educational systems in the United States. Our children are no longer taught; they are trained and conditioned to respond to the stimuli provided by the Order. In the eyes of the Order, there is little difference in the average American citizen and the dogs Pavlov trained to respond to his cues. Thanks to the Order, education in America today pales in comparison to that of the 1890s! Now we are conditioned to vote their candidates into office, work in their corporations, and purchase their goods. Don’t think, don’t connect the dots; just respond to the stimuli they provide in the media. It would appear that all of the testing advertising does in marketing research groups is merely to find the right “trigger” to gain the planned, conditioned response they want.

Perhaps one of the reasons that home schooling is frowned upon today is not because home-schooled children are academically inferior (in fact, the opposite is true), but because they lack the psychological conditioning provided within the structured educational system the Elite built in the early twentieth century. (We must also remember that one of the goals of Weishaupt was the communal education of children.) Is it possible that the home-schooled children present a threat to the system of psychological conditioning in education and, thus, to the overall plans for our nation? If one would take time to listen to the Progressive rants against home schoolers, one would think they were an actual plague upon society! Yet colleges and universities are beginning to realize that home-schooled children are far better prepared for the rigors of postsecondary learning. The Elite’s response was Common Core, which: (1) changes the educational structure so that home-schooled children will not meet the academic requirements of postsecondary education unless Common Core programming is added to their curriculum; and (2) further enhances the psychological conditioning of the next generation to become even more compliant to the stimuli provided by the Elite.

The Order’s Work Does Not Stop There

In additional chapters of Sutton’s book, we find documentation that the Soviet Union was the creation of the Order. That’s right: Communism with a capital “C.” The Order is also linked to the financing of the Nazis—the National Socialist Party in Germany. If you do your homework, Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto is nothing more than a reworded version of Weishaupt’s work and the Illuminati documents.[xi]The Order is not involved in building up America or even in hedging up American interests. The Order is about moving the world into the New World Order that Weishaupt envisioned for the Illuminati.

With World War I, the Order removed the czars of Russia and replaced them with communism. With World War II, they weakened Europe (and the Church in Europe), and moved it toward socialism. (Now you know why our leaders in the US continually compare what we should be doing to Europe, from health/medicine to law. They are using Europe as a justification for converting America into a socialistic state.) World War III has been planned to be between Israel and Islam; the synthesis will cause the world to abandon all other religions and embrace luciferianism.[xii]

So, is America moving toward communism? Nikita Khrushchev, the former general secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union during the Cold War, bragged that we would.

We can’t expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism.

—Nikita Khrushchev[xiii] (Emphasis added)

I am amazed at what is going on in the political left today. Just this week, an article in the Washington Examiner detailed the conflict between the chairman of the Federal Exchange Commission and Democrats who desire to violate the First Amendment and either censor or ban certain conservative books:

The Chairman of the Federal Election Commission today blasted Democratic colleagues opposed to his effort to protect conservative media after they imposed rules on the publisher of Rep. Paul Ryan’s new book, opening the door to future book regulations—or even a ban.

“By failing to affirm this publisher’s constitutional right, statutory right, to disseminate a political book free from FEC conditions and regulations, we have effectively asserted regulatory jurisdiction over a book publisher,” warned Chairman Lee E. Goodman, one of three Republicans on the six-person FEC.

“That failure reveals a festering legal uncertainty and chill for the free press rights of books and book publishers to publish and disseminate political books free from government regulation,” he added.[xiv]

Is it just me, or do political speeches and news headlines seem to be more appropriate in Russia than America lately? Unless Americans (and especially Christians) wake up and take action, the Elite will have America spelled as “Amerika!”

With all of that said, did you hear Tom Horn’s recent Hagmann & Hagmann interview in which he outlined what Pope Francis and the US President are planning regarding socialism and the United Nations (you can listen to that interview here. The first hour especially will send chills up your spine)? Communism/socialism creates dependence upon the state, enables the state to own everything (to include its citizens), and removes God from the collective consciousness of that society. Why is that important? Because these three things are set to work hand-in-hand with the Shinar Directive’s Luciferian New World Order.

[xi] The Protocols is not a rabbinical Jewish document about taking over the world. Both Freemasonry and the Luciferian Elite are trained in Kabbalah. In addition, after a courier was struck by lightning and the Illuminati codes were broken, it produced unwelcomed focus on dismantling their work. By writing the documents in Hebrew, if The Protocols were discovered, the Jewish people would be blamed rather than the Illuminati. Remember, although the Rothschilds are Jewish, they make up just one-thirteenth of the bloodlines.
