FREEMASONS IN SOUTH AFRICA – Like the rest of the world, a shadow government controls South Africa, consisting of a network of secret societies, the most known and most visible being the Freemasons. It is a matter of public record in South Africa’s history, that many South African leaders were Freemasons. This list includes General Louis Botha, Piet Retief, General Jan Smuts, Cecil John Rhodes, Sir George Grey, Sir Herbert Baker, Ernest and Harry Oppenheimer, Nelson Mandela, but to name a few.

The Freemasons are thought to have originated from disbanded Knights of the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem, otherwise known as the Knights Templar. Initiated stone masons were taught the secrets of symbolism and sacred geometry, only reserved for initiated members of knight orders and occult societies. These symbols and secrets were built into the stone masonry of temples, churches and other places of significance. There are many chapters and sects within Freemasonry, which all vary slightly, but ultimately they all follow the same doctrines and dogmas.

Famous Freemasons include Winston Churchill, George Washington, Franklin D Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Gerald Ford, Douglas MacArthur, King George VI, and Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh. Masonic sportsmen have included baseball legend Babe Ruth, golfer Arnold Palmer, basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal. Actors Clark Gable and John Wayne were Freemasons. Composers Beethoven and Mozart were Freemasons. Writers Arthur Conan Doyle and Oscar Wilde were Freemasons. Modern day music industry artists such as Kanye West and Jay-Z are Freemasons.

The symbols of the Freemasonry

Many South Africans have no idea about the secret society in Parliament Precinct, being the De Goedehoop Masonic Lodge, which was built in 1772. Cape Freemasons proudly proclaim that Freemasonry in the Cape is as old as Cape Town itself. The Mother Lodge, de Goede Hoop is the oldest active lodge in the Southern Hemisphere. Many governments have risen and fallen, but the lodge remains constant in the precincts of Parliament in Cape Town. In fact, the Goedehoop Temple was built long before Parliament. The Freemasons sold the land on which Parliament now stands, to the Government for one pound, on the condition that if Parliament should move, the land had to be sold back to the Freemasons for the same price. If Parliament were to move from Cape Town to Johannesburg for example, the Freemasons would have the right own the land where Parliament is currently situated. Every single Masonic Lodge now operating in South Africa can trace its roots back to de Goede Hoop.

The Temple of the Lodge de Goede Hoop in Bouquet Street, Cape Town, stands in its own grounds, some few meters to the left of Tuynhuys, the President of South Africa’s chambers, providing easy access to de Goede Hoop Lodge for past Prime Minsters / Presidents, most of whom have been Freemasons. Nelson Mandela was himself a 33rd Degree Freemason. The whole complex, even including the huge tree alongside the fountain, has been declared a National Monument. Interestingly enough, part of the grounds lies on St. John’s Street, which is absolutely no co-incidence, as the Knights and Freemasons are inextricably linked, as they are both controlled by the Jesuits.  Nelson Mandela was both a 33rd Degree Freemason, as well as going a Knight of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem.

The actual Temple building is long and narrow, being based on the exact dimensions of the inner sanctum of King Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem.

The Temple of the Lodge de Goede Hoop is approached through a massive arch, which was designed by Architect Louis Michel Thibault, and built by Hermann Schutte, both of whom were Freemasons. Anton Anreith, who as a Freemason, was endowed with occult knowledge of symbolism, a fact that is evident in his sculptural embellishments which adorn this lodge and many other historical buildings in the Cape.

Silence by Anton Anreith

Anton Anreith’s sculptures and reliefs tended towards mythological figures, themes and symbols, which are commonly used by the occult to mask deeper hidden allegories.  Of particular significance is the sculpture of the personification of Silence, indicative of the vow of secrecy sworn by Freemasons.  One of the greatest secrets of the Freemasons is that Luciferian occultism controls Freemasonry, as indicated by the presence of an owl sculpted into Anton Anreith’s sculpture of Silence.

There is a 200 foot stone statue of an owl which forms the focal point of the ritual area of Bohemian Grove, which is a super elite holiday retreat for occultists, where human sacrifice and many other rituals are performed.

The owl turns up in various other interesting places, including in reliefs from ancient Babylon, depicting the Mother Goddess Ishtar, complete with wings and claws, and flanked by owls.  The owl as a symbolic allegory of the occult, is a multilayered symbolic construct masking the root origin of Ophiolatry, the occult religion preserved in secret societies such as Freemasonry.

The use of occult and Freemasonic symbolism is evident in numerous places in South Africa, such as on the South African coat of arms, which is bears some similarity to the stylised Freemasonic Eagle.  This in turn is taken from the Roman Cult’s Eagle, which even has a depiction of Jesus on the cross.  Both the Masonic Eagle and the Roman Cult Eagle bear the hidden code of INRI

Roman Cult Eagle

The Code of INRI is revealed in the Extreme oath of the Jesuits.  It is an acronym for the Latin words IUSTUM NECAR REGES IMPIOUS, which translates into:  It is just or exterminate / annihilate impious / heretical kings / governments / rulers.

The Eagle is also a symbol of the Greek god Zeus, who became Jupiter under the Romans, and further evolved into Saint Peter, the patriarch of the Roman Catholic Church, when Roman Pantheism was converted to Roman Monotheism after the Councile of Nicea in 333 AD.

Symbolic depictions of Zeus are prevailent in the sculptures of Freemason Anton Anreith, who was responsible for the sculptural embellishments of de Goede Hoop Lodge.
