There have been tons written about this subject, but what youâ€™ll find here is a true story â€” mine. Herein is what lies behind the sweet commercials about the Shrinersâ€™ Childrenâ€™s Hospital, which we all appreciate. God bless those children; they are precious, and they deserve our help, but what exactly is freemasonry, and what does it do?
What seems to be a friendly fraternity of men or of the Eastern Star, which allows membership to men and women (see below), is a secretive organization, bound to each other by camaraderie and regular meetings. Inside these seemingly innocuous organizations is a mystical society welded by an ungodly series of oaths through multiple circles of advancement throughout the world.
Now youâ€™re thinking, so what? The â€œso whatâ€ is an extreme violation of the Word of God in many respects resulting in many and varied curses. I imagine most who enter the broad array of freemasonry, and that includes the Royal Order of Scotland, the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, the Masonic Knights Templar, and the Red Cross of Constantine, which works five degrees throughout world, are not conscious of the quagmire of bondage theyâ€™ve entered into.
TheÂ Order of the Eastern StarÂ is aÂ MasonicÂ appendant body open to both men and women. It was established in 1850 by lawyer and educatorÂ Rob Morris, a noted Freemason, but was only adopted and approved as an appendant body of the Masonic Fraternity in 1873. The order is open to people of all religious beliefs. It has approximately 10,000 chapters in 20 countries and approximately 500,000 members under its General Grand Chapter.
Members of the Order of the Eastern Star are aged 18 and older; men must be Master Masons and women must have specific relationships with Masons. Originally, a woman would have to be the daughter, widow, wife, sister, or mother of a Master Mason, but the Order now allows other relativesÂ as well as allowingÂ Job’s Daughters,Â Rainbow Girls, Members of the Organization of Triangles (NY only) and members of the Constellation of Junior Stars (NY only) to become members when of age.
Members of these bodies apparently have no clue what they have entered into that could dramatically affect them and/or their families. Call it blindness, ignorance or just plain willfulness, but what their allegiance unleashes is often hell for them but mostly their families.
Hear the words of the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead (2 Timothy 4:1):
2 Timothy 4
I CHARGE [you] in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, Who is to judge the living and the dead, and by (in the light of) His coming and His kingdom:
But I tell you, Do not bind yourselves by an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is the throne of God; Or by the earth, for it is the footstool of His feet; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King.
This one Scripture by the King of kings forbids any oath, and oaths have consequences. These oaths are huge in the un-Christian cult called Freemasonry. Binding yourself to demonic powers that inhabit this organization brings more curses than you can imagine. As a matter of fact, it unleashes one of the largest packages of curses deliverance ministers encounter. First, for a very comprehensive overview if you are unfamiliar with the freemasons, I highly recommend you go here:
Specifically, hereâ€™s a short list of the demons, or if you prefer, evil spirits, that oppress those who have sworn allegiance to the Masonic lodge, but also to their families and ancestry:
Curses Found Under Freemasonry
- The spirit of Freemasonry and the curse of the Luciferin doctrine.
- A spirit, or spirits of Anti-CHRIST
- A spirit of idolatry.
- Spirits of witchcraft and occultism (In severe cases, a spirit of poltergeist may be troublesome.)
- Spirits of mockery.
- The “all seeing third eye” in the forehead (an Illuminati symbol) may manifest if there has been heavy family involvement.)
- A spirit of mental confusion.
- A spirit of spiritual apathy.
- A spirit of emotional hardness.
- Spirits of doubt, skepticism, and unbelief.
- Spirits of infirmities, sicknesses, and allergies (a most frequent manifestation). Where family membership has been handed down for a long time, and there has been special dedication to the lodge, spirits may cause special destruction in health or financial matters.
- A spirit of false religion.
- Spirits of confusion, â€œbandsâ€ around the head, loss of consciousness, mental shock, arrogance, financial difficulties, extreme lethargy, death and accidents.

I hasten to add to this list the Jezebel spirit, which is very prominent in freemasony. You can learn all you need to know by reading Confronting Jezebel by Steve Sampson.
As I wrote, thereâ€™s a ton of references to this cult on the Net. As you probably noted, there are mental, physical and financial curses associated with various forms of idolatry found within freemasonry. God said, worship Him only, and Him only will you serve.
One God: Jesus Christ!
Exodus 20:3-5 says it all, yet the Masonic Lodge rituals in reality attempt to bundle the true God of the Bible â€“ Jehovah â€“ together with all the many false gods in to a grand all-embracing figure who belongs to all. This theology is known as syncretism, i.e. â€œall roads lead to God.â€ The Masonic Lodge unveils the mongrel name for this Masonic god in the â€œRoyalâ€ Arch degree of the York Rite. The Masonic Lodge, thus, blasphemously unites the God of the Bible â€“ Jehovah â€“ with the pagan gods of Syria â€“ Baal â€“ and of Egypt â€“ On â€“ into a man-made anti-scriptural trinity.
Godâ€™s infallible Word defines the true God of heaven, including His different names and attributes. It also outlines the manner by which man must draw close to Him. That is in and through the name of Godâ€™s dear Son the Lord Jesus Christ alone.
The Bible says, â€œFor there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due timeâ€ (1 Timothy 2:5-6). The Masonic Lodge is a man-made religion that denies Christ His rightful place as manâ€™s SOLE Redeemer. The lodge also FORBIDS any mention of the name of the Lord Jesus Christ during their prayers, praise and worship. We must therefore ask, who is this abstract being that may be approached in such an indeterminate manner? It is certainly not the God of heaven!
My Story and Masonic Curses
Hereâ€™s my story in a nutshell. Understand at the outset that I was NEVER a mason, just an heir of those who were deeply enmeshed in this cult. I donâ€™t hate free masons or the members of the Eastern Star. I only desire that those who are actually Christians will leave this false religion â€” and yes, it is a religion — or those who donâ€™t know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, will.
No apologies to those who remain skeptical about my testimony, or think Iâ€™m nuts or have been drinking Christian Kool-Aid. Some 25 years ago, I began to realize I was caught up in a whirlwind of unspeakable oppression. It didnâ€™t make sense. Yeah, I had done my share of sinning, but looking around me at those I knew had at least shared some of my same foolishness, I saw no comparison with my lifeâ€™s consequences and theirs. I seemed to be faced with something entirely different. Outwardly I was doing ok, holding good jobs and trying my best to put one foot in front of the other.
Around 1977, after I had given my heart to Jesus Christ, I found myself in a daily battle with hellish forces. I realized this had gone on since the age of eight, if not before. Later, I learned it was indeed before. It seemed crazy that this could be happening to me. Unvented rage was a normal reaction for me. After all, a genuine Christian couldnâ€™t be this way, I thought. This continued unabated no matter how much repenting and praying I did.
I investigated every angle and ran down every Christian rabbit trail I could find to attempt to set myself free from the oppression, but most did little good. I was baptized in the Holy Spirit in 1980, but as wonderful as that was, hell seemed to increase even more against me. Gradually, I began to deal with what seemed like minor spirits that I could almost â€œthump wayâ€ in the Name of Jesus. However, larger and more prodigious entities seemed to always oppress me. I was dumbfounded and deeply depressed, often thinking God had forsaken me. I must be irredeemable, I thought. Every now and then, I had a spiritual breakthrough, and I was on top the world! A few days later, I was back down in the dumps. Bipolar? Oh, yes. Unknown to most, I hid it well. Before you conclude that I was merely bipolar, let me assure you that it was far more than this!
My search ultimately led me to pursue what the Bible refers to as iniquity, one particular type of sin. In fact, this one involves what previous generations have done. In other words, it is a particularly hideous sin that others have passed down to you through your bloodline. In this point I normally here the rebuttal, â€œBut, arenâ€™t we just only responsible for our own sins?â€ Yes, but we may be affected by what others have done. Think of your typical medical questions: â€œDid your parents have thus and so? Your grandparents? High blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, etc?â€
You see, your spiritual genetic bloodline, as well as your physical genes, are passed on to you. Many believe that when they were born again Jesus paid the price for this type of sin. The truth is, he did, but your ancestorsâ€™ sins need to be confessed to God and renounced (see Leviticus 26:40-42): â€œBut of the will confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathersâ€¦If their uncircumcised hearts are humbled, and they accept their guilt (i.e. accept the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, then I will remember My covenant with Jacob, and My covenant with Isaac, I will remember, I will remember the land.â€ (In the New Testament we ARE the land!). Also see the Books of Daniel, Nehemiah and Ezra).
Demons are legalistic and will use any valid excuse to oppress. They desire that iniquity will continue to be passed on to future generations who will inhabit the same sin or sins and possibly pass them forward. Thus, idolatry, which is the heart of any matter, is perpetuated.
I can assure you if you donâ€™t deal with iniquity, the same sins will crop up and affect you continually.
Let me get to the point about why I was hugely affected. My maternal grandparents were the grand patron and grand matron of the Eastern Star in Alabama. To put it in the vernacular, they were top dogs. The Eastern Star is simply another branch of freemasony, with much of the same oaths, including initiations, allegiances and â€œdeepâ€ secrets of the masons. These relatives were deeply involved in this organization, ordaining and initiating many others, who were likely typically ignorant of how and why this violated Holy Scripture.
Incidentally, the aforementioned bipolar disorder runs through my family line. I believe, unequivocally, that most, if no all, were affected by the inherited Masonic curses that led to this mental-emotional disease. As some know, I wrote a book on bipolar disorder: â€œOvercoming Bipolar Disorder and Other Mental Difficulties: A Christian Perspectiveâ€ (https://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?keyWords=overcoming+bipolar+disorder+%26+Other+mental+difficulties&type)
The more I read, studied and prayed, the more the tentacles of freemasonry showed up in my life. Quite honestly, overcoming this horrendous mess took years! It was exhausting to me spiritually, mentally and physically. Probably youâ€™re thinking, â€œWhy didnâ€™t he seek help?â€ Actually, I did but most did very little for me. It was if God wanted me to defeat this bondage by praying and listening. It was hard, but by the grace of God, Iâ€™ve done it!
If youâ€™re ensnared in this, either by your joining the masons, Eastern Star or any other branches, or if youâ€™re a descendant of someone who did, thereâ€™s a way out, but thereâ€™s a price to pay. It may take much time and availing yourself to the wisdom and grace of God. Either that, or you can remain bound to curses and oppression. At any rate, get help. Many ministers today are keenly aware of this occultic religion, and would be glad to help you.
In essence, someone caught up in this cursed organization may find themselves, in addition to the list of demons above, with regular confusion, mind-binding, an antichrist attitude that canâ€™t be explained, fatigue, tremendous fear and panic, intestinal problems, terrifying dreams, a godly destiny preempted, depression for no reason, compulsions and obsessions of every description, aberrant sexual desires and rage and anger.

Afterward, begin by praying this prayer:
Pray out loud
Father God, creator of heaven and earth, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ, your son. I come as a sinner seeking forgiveness and cleansing from all sins committed against you and others made in your image. I honor my earthly father and mother and all our ancestors of flesh and blood, also those whom I am related to through the spirit by adoption, and godparents, but I utterly turn away from, ask forgiveness for, and renounce all their sins. I forgive all my ancestors for the effects of their sins on my children and me. I confess and renounce all of my own sins. I renounce and rebuke Satan and every spiritual power of his affecting me and my family.
I renounce and forsake all involvement in freemasonry, all its branches, or any other lodge or craft by my ancestors and myself. In the name of Jesus Christ, I renounce and cut off witchcraft, Tubal Cain, and Maha Bone, the principal spirits behind freemasonry. I renounce and cut off Baphomet, the spirit of antichrist, and the spirits of death and deception. I renounce the insecurity ; the love of position and power; the love of money, avarice, or greed; and the pride that would have led my ancestors into Masonry. I renounce all the fears that held them in Masonry, especially the fears of death, fears of men, and fears of trusting in the name of Jesus Christ. I renounce every position held in the lodge by any of my ancestors or myself, including “Master,” “Worshipful Master,” or any other, I renounce the calling of any man “Master,” for Jesus Christ alone is my only master and Lord, and He forbids anyone else having that title. I renounce the entrapping of others into Masonry and observing the helplessness of others during the rituals. I ask forgiveness for and renounce the downplaying of marriage in Freemasonry and the taking off of wedding rings in rituals.
I renounce the effects of Masonry passed on to me through any female ancestor who felt distrusted and rejected by her husband as he entered and attended any lodge and refused to tell her of his secret activities. I also renounce all obligations, oaths, and curses enacted by every female member of my family through any direct membership of all women’s order of Freemasonry, the order of the Eastern Star, or any other Masonic or occult organization. I renounce every oath, pledge, pact, dedication, and ritual of Freemasonry and every branch of freemasonry. I do this, Father, in the name of your son, Jesus Christ, Amen.
Pray this prayer out loud:
â€œFather, I thank you for Jesus. He is my savior. I am so thankful. Because you forgave me, I choose to forgive others. Everyone who has hurt me, lied to me, or disappointed me I forgive them now. I repent of anger, bitterness, and hatred. I repent of rebellion, resentment, revenge, envy, jealousy, and strife. I repent of lust, witchcraft, idolatry, fear, doubt, and unbelief. I put all of this under the blood of Jesus. I denounce the sins of my ancestors. I separate and cut myself off from all generational curses. I renounce and confess as sin all unholy oaths, vows, pledges, and ceremonies and separate myself from all those curses. I denounce and confess as sin all unholy soul ties. I ask you father to separate all sexual ties from my life that are not of you right now. For Jesus is my savior, my Lord, my deliverer, and my healer. Jesus has broken the power of curses I choose to be free and I will be free in Jesus name. Lord Jesus because you want me to be totally free from all occult bondage, I will burn and/or destroy all objects in my possession that connect me with all lodges and occult organizations, including Masonry, witchcraft, Mormonism, all regalia, aprons, books of rituals, and rings and other jewelry. I renounce the effects of these or other objects of Masonry, including the compass and the square have had on my family and me in the name of Jesus Christ. I ask forgiveness for and renounce Jezebel and Ahab and all their influence in my life or ancestors. I renounce all the ungodly practices of the Catholic church. In Jesusâ€™ Name. Amen
