What is the Illuminati and do they still exist?


The Illuminati was originally called “Bavarian Illuminati”, Bavarian being a region in Germany. The society was established on May 1st 1776 by Johann Adam Weishaupt. He was a philosopher and a follower of the teachings of John Locke and the school of Empiricism. His father died when he was 5 years old. Weishaupt was than raised by his godfather Johann Adam Freiherr von Ickstatt.   Adam’s godfather was a professor of law like his father and taught at University of Ingolstadt. His godfather was wrapped up in the “Age of Enlightenment” movement and brought Weishaupt up teaching him these beliefs.

Adam was a well-known Freemason initiated into the Masonic Lodge in 1777. He used Freemasonry to recruit people for his own society telling them about his project of “illumination”. He worked with Adolph Freiherr Knigge to create what they believed was pure masonry and began a whole new secret society.

There has been a lot of controversy about what the organizations main goals were. Feel free to do some research yourself but from all the books I have read, I believe the main goal was to stop the influence of religion. I believe they were mainly going after the Catholic church. It seems they also wanted to silence or stop all together their political leaders.

Weishaupt’s writings and speeches were starting to cause rebellion and controversy. In 1784,  Elector of Bavaria, Karl Theodor banned the secret society. Some believe The Illuminati were responsible for bringing on the French Revolution. Weishaupt lost his job at the University of Ingolstadt and fled Bavaria. Duke Ernest II helped Weishaupt live comfortably in Gotha, a town in Thuringia, Germany. Adam wrote a series of books before his death in 1830 on illuminism, including A Complete History of the Persecutions of the Illuminati in Bavaria (1785), A Picture of Illuminism (1786), An Apology for the Illuminati (1786), and An Improved System of Illuminism (1787).

People throughout history were always led to believe that Adam Weishaupt left no legacy behind. It’s been said he didn’t influence anyone after his death and even his own followers went on their way seeking different beliefs. Some of the most popular political members of the Bavarian Illuminati were Ferdinand of BrunswickXavier von ZwackJohann Wolfgang von Goethe, and Johann Gottfried Herder. In 1787, Von Zwack’s house was searched and documents from the secret society were found. Afterwards, it was reported that the society had over 2,000 members. Those who saw the documents claim they were plans to bring in the New World Order by controlling media, Government, and corporations. They wanted full political power and stop the influence over the people by religion.


We know that Adam Weishaupt was a Freemason and worked himself up the ladder. Feel free to learn all about Freemasonry by reading the Wikipedia article here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freemasonry Freemasonry is still around today and each group’s beliefs are different. It’s kinda like churches in a way. I am a Baptist for example, but that does not mean I believe what every Baptist church believes in. Freemasonry is where we get a lot of the symbols we see today surrounding the Illuminati. Each lodge had a different logo they used even though the most common one we see is the square and compasses found with or without the G in the middle.

You have probably noticed a masons lodge in your town with the popular logo. Here is an example of what Freemason’s teach to the public.

The largest worldwide society, Freemasonry is an organization of men based on the “fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man,” using builders’ tools as symbols to teach basic moral truths generally accepted by persons of good will. Their motto is “morality in which all men agree, that is, to be good men and true.” It is religious in that a belief in a Supreme Being and in the immortality of the soul are the two prime requirements for membership, but it is nonsectarian in that no religious test is used. The purpose of Freemasonry is to enable men to meet in harmony, to promote friendship, and to be charitable. Its basic ideals are that all persons are the children of one God, that all persons are related to each other, and that the best way to worship God is to be of service to people.

According to them, some Masons trace their organization’s origin back to the beginning of time (much of their teaching is tied to Solomon’s temple, but they also claim that John the Baptist and the Apostle John were Masons), modern Masonry dates only to 1717. It was in that year that 4 lodges in Great Britain formed the first Grand Lodge of England, which became the Premier Grand Lodge of the world. Since that time, lodges have spread all over the world with local grand lodges formed whenever enough lodges exist in an area. Lodges first appeared in America in Philadelphia (1730) and Boston (1733).  The old English Constitution refers to an ancient definition of the ancient craft: “Freemasonry is a system of morality, veiled in allegory, and illustrated by symbol,” [Freemason’ symbols can be made to mean almost anything a person chooses to make them; Master Masons take an oath, “Ever to conceal, never to reveal. It seeks to make good men better through the form of belief in “the fatherhood of God, the brotherhood of man, and the immortality of the soul.”

Sounds great doesn’t it? Unfortunately, the “Supreme Being” doesn’t have to be God. That being said, Satanist who want to practice their cult craft join the Freemasons to mask all they do and still look like an upstanding citizen.

The official publication of “The Supreme Council 33” of Scottish Rite Freemasonry is titled New Age. The contents sound an awful lot like what the Bible teaches us to watch out for. This reminds a lot of people of Adam Weishaupt and his plan to bring in a New World Order. I was shocked when I learned that churches are actually led by Masons. For example, a 1991 survey by the Southern Baptist Convention Sunday School Board found that 14% of SBC pastors and 18% of SBC deacon board chairs were Masons; it is also estimated that SBC members comprise 37% of total U.S. lodge membership. (A 2000 updated SBC report found that over 1,000 SBC pastors are Masons.) Mormon Temple rites are also strikingly similar to Masonic Lodge practices (probably because Joseph Smith, the founder of the Mormon Church, was also a Mason) You can easily begin to see why churches have changed drastically over the years replacing Bible’s with new versions. This is also why you can rarely find a church that preaches on anything negative. More and more churches have disregarded the “Hell fire and brimstone” and “Salvation through Jesus” messages for more uplifting and loving messages.

It must be said that Freemasonry is not and has never been some small little club with no influence over the majority of the people. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Ethan Allen, John Hancock, John Paul Jones, Paul Revere, Robert Livingston, and 35 other men who were signers of the Declaration of Independence and/or the Constitution were Freemasons. This is why you see the symbols & logos on our dollar bill, on various buildings throughout Washington D.C. and well, all over the US. Other notable men who were Freemason include, Mozart, Henry Ford, Rudyard Kipling, Gerald Ford, Norman Vincent Peale, Douglas MacArthur, and Will Rogers. However, they didn’t completely overtake our Government and early pop culture. John Adams, John Quincy Adams, James Madison, Millard Fillmore, Daniel Webster, and Charles Sumner are some notable men who were against Freemasonry.

I know after this blog is posted, I will have several Christian friends come out and defend Freemasonry. Therefore, I will include my personal belief on calling yourself a Freemason and a Christian. As I said above, not all lodges have the same beliefs. Some smaller organizations may be made up of all Christians. Possibly even all of one denomination. However, I personally would not want to be involved in ANYTHING affiliated with a group known for trying to bring down Christianity, knowingly allowing Satanist in to do occult practices, and with such a sketchy history.

I decided to interview a dozen open Freemasons on their beliefs and what they know their members to believe. Each person I spoke with was from a different lodge and in a different state. I asked each person the same questions. I will summarize the answers I got from them all.

#1 Do you believe in God? Every single Mason said they do believe in God. Only two of them believed in him as the creator of all things. The other 10 believed that God was some kind of high spiritual being that guides us throughout or lives. 7 of them literally said that God is what you want him to be. It does not matter if it’s Buddha, Allah, Jehovah, Brahma, or even Lucifer. Whatever makes you feel good and leads you to be a better person.

#2 Do you believe in Jesus? 10 out of 12 answered yes. However, 9 of the 10 believed he was a great teacher of morality rather than a Savior and son of God. None of them believed that Jesus will return as the Messiah. Like a lot of Jehovah Witnesses, Jesus is pretty much omitted from their Bible and verses they like to quote. Prayers said at 99% of the lodges are not in Jesus name. They claim the reason is not to offend any non-christian members.

#3 Do you believe the Bible is the word of God? 12 out 12 answered no. 10 out 12 believed the Bible does hold the true law we should follow. They agree the commandments should be followed. The majority of them follow the teachings of the Kabala over the teachings of the Bible IF they believe in religion at all. Albert Pike, the man responsible for virtually rewriting the Scottish Rite degrees into their present form, said that the Masonic “search after light” leads directly back to the Kabala, the ultimate source of Masonic beliefs (Morals and Dogma). One of the great authorities on Masonry was Albert Pike (1809-1901), Sovereign Grand Commander of the Southern Supreme Council of Scottish Right Freemasonry in the USA and “an honorary member of almost every Supreme Council in the world” (Albert G. Mackey, 33rd degree, and Charles T. McClenachan, 33rd degree, Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, The Masonic History Company, 1921, rev. ed.; 2:564). Pike authored Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry for the Supreme Council of the 33rd Degree, which was published by its authority. This compendium of official Masonic lore clearly traces Masonry to Hinduism, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, and other Eastern religions. Albert G. Mackey, co-author of Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, is also one of Masonry’s highest authorities. In his Manual of the Lodge, he traces Masonic teaching back to “the ancient rites and mysteries practiced in the very bosom of pagan darkness. …” (Albert G. Mackey, Manual of the Lodge, Macoy and Sickles, 1802, p. 96) -rapidnet.com I strongly suggest you read the Wikipedia article on Albert Pike and how he was treated by the Freemason & our Government upon his death. very interesting.

#4 Do you believe in Sin? As in, we are all sinners who need a savior? 12 out of 12 said no. They all believe that humans just make mistakes and poor judgement. They think those things are not necessarily sin, just accident’s or stupidity from not being enlightened. Everyone I spoke to believed that with proper teaching and enlightenment, a person can overcome their faults and live a moral perfect life. They believe anyone who just tries their best can have a happy afterlife. Hmmm sounds more and more like Adam Weishaupt.

#5 Do you believe in Salvation and Heaven/Hell? 11 out of 12 said no. At least not in the way Christians believe. Salvation to them is when you have completed the steps of enlightenment. Following the statues, rules, and doing good works are how you have a happy afterlife. 5 out of 12 believed in reincarnation. One person believed that Hell is the state of living on the Earth without enlightenment. The other 11 did not believe in its existence as an actual place at all. None of them believed we could know for sure we will make it to peace when we pass away.

Speculation & Theories

The majority of the population does not believe that The Illuminati survived and is thriving to this day. This is the reason why if anyone speaks about The Illuminati’s existence they are labeled a conspiracy theorist. It’s my personal belief that they do exist but probably did fade out over time just to rise back from the ashes. I don’t understand why people find it so hard to believe that folks in 2017 would follow the teaching of some “crazy” man from the 1700’s. Guy Fawkes lived from 13 April 1570 – 31 January 1606 and look at how many people follow his lead today wearing his face as a mask and calling themselves Anonymous. L. Ron Hubbard lived from March 13, 1911 – January 24, 1986 and in my opinion was stark raving mad. Yet, look how big the church of Scientology is today. Edward Alexander Crowley lived from 12 October 1875 – 1 December 1947, he was an occultist who wrote some books on his beliefs. He founded the religion of Thelema and look at how many people still follow him and his religion today. All it takes is for one person in power to believe the writings or teachings of a person and influence others to follow.

There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that the elite, our world’s leaders, are part of some kind of group. We know they have secret meetings at places like the Bohemian Grove. There is the famous Bilderberg Group that has been linked to some of our most famous politicians. The Elite have made it clear that their intentions are for a one world Government. They often talk about reaching their goals of a New World Order. This idea has been around for centuries. What do people in power crave? The answer is more power. World domination. You can bet your butt the elite are still working towards this goal and won’t stop till it happens.

With that being said, I can totally see why Adam Weishaupt’s teachings have been picked up today. Mix that in with the Freemason’s beliefs and Satan worship that has made its way into pop culture thanks to Crowley and Anton LaVey. Boom! You have today’s Illuminati. I do not believe there is some special headquarters for the secret society. I surely don’t believe there is a specific company for the real Illuminati recruiting members. It has NEVER been that way. The majority of secret societies stay that way because members come in through private invite only.

Anonymous might not appreciate the comparison but I believe this is how today’s Illuminati is ran. Anonymous claims there is no major headquarters. There is no sign up form or initiation. Anyone can be a member just by claiming they are, wearing the mask, staying well, anonymous, and fighting for human rights. Yes, they get together in groups and protest. They meet together to decide who or what they are going to go after next. However, there is no appointed leader and people in the group have free rein to believe in whatever they want.

This seems to be how the Illuminati is carrying on today. Whoever believes in the New World Order and stands behind a one world Government & religion can be a member. All you have to do is proclaim it. Wear the logos, throw up the symbols, follow along with their teachings, and you’re in. Does that mean you will become rich and famous? No. Not at all. They could care less about you. What it does mean is that you fell into the trend. You are the sheep that will help lead the masses down the path they want.

I just can’t imagine the Bush family, the Clinton’s, the Rockefeller’s, or the Rothschild family sitting around calling themselves The Illuminati wearing the all seeing eye T-shirts. Nevertheless, I bet they get a kick out of everyone following right along with their plan like sheep being led to slaughter. I do believe they have rituals they follow and that they truly believe that sacrifices and certain occult practices help them gain more power. That has been proven during the exposure of the Bohemian Grove and other private elite meetings. I also strongly believe that they use A-list celebrities to help control the masses and persuade the people to follow the order they have created.

Because there is so much to say on this subject I will do a series of blogs on the topic of the Illuminati. This first initial blog was to just explain what the cult is to those who haven’t heard of it. Later, I will show how they are behind almost everything shocking or game changing throughout history. Lately, you may have noticed the websites and social sites popping up for the group. DO NOT FALL FOR ANY OF THIS MESS. It honestly makes you look silly. I highly doubt the real Illuminati or any of the elite behind the cult will ever come out publicly. At least not in the way these websites are portraying.


IllumiCorp, Official Illuminati, Black Sun Society, and any other website like those mentioned are NOT the real deal. They have made loads of money off of fooling teenagers and young adults seeking fame and fortune. The “official” site has made so much money off of their merchandise they are verified on social media. However, it’s just a company who cashed in on the trend and spent so much money in advertising they were verified as a real company. That does NOT mean they are the real secret society. Numerous amounts of people have claimed their bank accounts were drained after buying merchandise or paying for membership. The owner of the IllumiCorp website is a known scammer by the name of Ainsley Knight.

Truth is, the only way you are going to be invited in to the real deal is if you are a multi-millionaire with the ability to help push their agenda. Simple as that. More coming soon. Please feel free to email me with any questions.
