It is my prayer that the Lord has blessed you with a beautiful enlightenment and peace this Christmas season. I found a deeper enlightenment period during the Advent and Christmas season than ever before. The week of Christmas was extremely hard. I found that the only thing that got me through it was the Lord. I was limited to my chaotic bedroom with no engagement from another human being except the occasional two-minute visit from my husband. On Christmas, I received no text messages, no visitors, and no presents. I stayed in bed and stared at the bedroom ceiling wondering how the dust collects and maintains itself with the force of the air moving from the fan. I finally was able to leave my room on Christmas evening once my husband’s children went to bed. I was able to make our traditional chip beef on biscuits.
I made homemade biscuits, which was a joy. It was a joy to be able to talk to my husband. What allowed me to make it through that time was the midnight Christmas Eve mass at church. It was an honor to be part of the changing of the Alter during the mass to signify the change of the season from Advent to Christmas. A reverence and peace comes when you enter into the chancel. As I entered in to change the alter linens it became very quiet. A peaceful silence. It seemed while changing the linens there was a peaceful rhythmic movement as we changed the linens from purple to white. I felt as if I had been in the silence for almost 20 minutes when we were finally completed. In actuality, though we had only been in the chancel about five minutes and the organ was going at full volume. It was a blessing to be able to have participated in that activity.
I have made the leap on prayer and faith to go and obtain my third master’s degree. Like all positives and blessings roadblocks remain. I found out today at I owe 1874 dollars to my old university for leaving the class. Normally I would be ok with this but right now with little money coming in this is one bill that I cannot afford. I admit choosing which bills I am going to pay each month is difficult. Because inevitably I end of being late on some and not on others that leads to late charges and never-ending phone calls for payments. I continue to pray that the Lord will provide me with the means to get a job that will help me pay my bills better than what my current situation is or provide me with a viable solution. I am trying to see this as a way of me developing a relevant relationship of understanding between others and myself as I work towards sharing the Word of God. I pray for the Lord to provide me with a means to repay my debtors for when I have more I shall give more unto the Lord. Luke 7:40-43 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on. There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most? Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
As the year ends, I have been blessed to find the Lord again and hear Him. Like most millennials I was for a good part of my teenage and twenties stuck in a religious strife being headstrong in my desires of wanting to understand and know more but wanting to fit in with modern society so I could become my own. The love I found for ritual and fellowship I thought I had found in the masonic orders. However, after returning to the Church I found a true happiness and peace that can only be found in Church. I have discovered on my own the demonic nature of the masonic orders. The oaths on holy books, the proselytizing that they are not a religion but not holding up the men and women in their organization to attend religious services. Men and women whether knowing or not give up their religious fellowship with one another in Christ when they meet and perform their rituals. While the members donate millions to non-profits and help their community the underpinning of the organization lacks Christ.
Organizations like Hamas do charitable work to their brothers and sisters but the underlining of them is a terrorist organization. Masonry is no different. Many individuals I meet in these organizations I had known over 13 years of my life and once I broke away from them I was, informed vial rumors were spread about me to defame my name and character. Grown adults older than me by a generation or two were spreading gossip, rumors, and lies about someone half their age. Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator. I fail to see how this is Christian or on their terms of good moral character. I believe that the masonic lodges are the playground for Satan’s demons. That once you turn away and go into the Light of Christ that they become angry and hostile. I realize that when I speak of this many of my masonic acquaintances will be upset and tell me how I am misinformed. However, after 13 years in multiple organizations and spending almost 6 days a week in various meetings performing various rituals and spreading the word of how masonry was not evil. I can tell you from my own personal experience the truth about how Satan resides in the lodge room. If you have doubts about your masonic activities and question if its morals are what the Supreme architect really intended I encourage you to email me. I can share with you my experiences, pray with you, and assist you in seeing the God’s true path.
To provide you one insight I had as I was leaving the lodge I found this.
1 Kings 7:14 He was a widow’s son of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in brass: and he was filled with wisdom, and understanding, and cunning to work all works in brass. – Also known in the masonic world as Hiram Abif. Masonic religious context is wrong. He was not an architect but a brass worker. He sent his architects to work on King Solomon’s temple. He was not killed for not releasing a great secret but instead buried in a sarcophagus in Qabr Hiram.
Joshua 24:14 – Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the Lord.
May the Lord bless you today and for the year ahead, I pray you find peace and happiness in the Lord’s path for you today.
