Illuminati New World Order Quest for Global Domination

There is no doubt that the Illuminati are the most powerful secret organization in the world. Here is what President Woodrow Wilson had to say about the Illuminati.

Secret Power of the Illuminati

Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.

— President Woodrow Wilson

The origins of the Illuminati are mind boggling. The Order of the Illuminati claims to trace its origins from various ancient cults, sects and secret societies(referred to as mysteries).What is the true history of the Order of the Illuminati?The history of the Order of the Illuminati can be traced back to the founding of the Babylonian Magi Cult, and its Cabbalistic and Mithraic beliefs in the 6th century BC. The modern editionof the Order started with the Lurianic Kabbalah (or New Kabbalah) circa AD 1630-40.

This was later followed by Shabbetai Zevi, in 1666, proclaiming himself to be the Jewish Messiah(known as the Shabbatean heresy, Frankists, Zoharists, or the Illumined).Jacob Frank (he was originally called Jacob Leibowicz and he saw himself as an embodiment of Zevi”) followed suit.

Frank taught a “Religious Myth of Nihilism,” or “the way to Esau or Edom”; that the only way to “true life” or liberation was through the “overthrow and destruction of society”; and to “abolish all laws, but to be accomplished in secret.” Frank was incarcerated by the Inquisition in the year 1760. In 1773, he was freed by the conquering Russians. Hemoved to Offenbach, Germany, dubbing himself baron.”

The more perfunctory genesis of the Order of the Illuminati came with the birth of Adam Weishaupt (its founder).He was born in Ingolstadt, Bavaria, in 1748 to Jewish parents, who converted to Roman Catholicism. Weishaupt attended monastery schools and a high school overseen by the Jesuits. He learned Latin, Czech, Italian, Greek, and Hebrew. The Jesuits thought that he would become a missionary. Instead, he rebelled and became a Professor of Canon Law at the University of Ingolstadt.

In 1768, Weishaupt began amassing a large library and reading every ancient manuscript he could get hold of. He was especially fascinated in the Great Pyramid of Giza. In 1770, he became friends with a Danish merchant named Franz Kolmer, who had lived in Alexandria, Egypt and made numerousjourneys to Giza. In 1771, he decided to form a secret society whose chief objective was“transforming the human race.”

He spent the next 5 years perfecting his plan and researching/borrowing from multifarious sources such as Buddhism, Egyptian occultism, Cabalism (Kabbalah),the Sufis of Islam, the Cathars (a European Gnostic religion; the name means “perfect ones”), the French Revolutionary Voltaire, the Eclectic German Masonry Lodge Theodore in Munich (to which he belonged), and from his Jesuit training

Objectives of the Illuminati

On May 1, 1776, the Illuminati (from the same root word for Lucifer, “Bearer of Light” or Enlightened Ones) was founded as a single powerful secret organization to overthrow established civilization and religion, and to establish a (New World Order) Novus Ordo Seclorum. Weishaupt developed the following seven-fold plan as the means to arrive at that objective:

  • Abolish all ordered governments
  • Abolish private property
  • Abolish inheritance
  • Abolish patriotism
  • Abolish religion
  • Abolish the family unit
  • Creation of a New World Order/World Government

According to Rev. Seth Payson, who in 1802 authoredProof of the Illuminati, the Order Illuminati is symbolized by the Great Pyramid, with the all-seeing eye on top (The Great Seal of the United States on the back of the dollar bill), with 13 levels. These 13 levels are divided into 3 groups:

  • Nursery (Novice, Minerval, Illumined, Minor Preparation,)
  • Masonry (Fellowcraft, Apprentice, Master, Illumined Novice/Major, Illumined Knight)
  • Mysteries (Priest/Presbyter, Regent /Prince, Majus, and Rex).

The Order is controlled by the “Council of 13” (Council of 12 + the leader—Weishaupt himself). The true power of the organization was considered to be “circles within circles;” that is the inner-most circle, governed by the Council of 13

Weishaupt was joined in this endeavor by Baron Xavier von Zwack (a lawyer) and Baron Adolf von Knigge (a very well-connected Mason). On July 16, 1782, at the Congress of Wilhelmsbad, the Illuminati joined with the Free Masons to form the Illumined Lodges of Masons and moved its Headquarters to Frankfurt, Germany(where the Rothschild banking family resided).


By 1785, there were 15 Illumined Lodges set up in the Thirteen Colonies of America. The Lodge in New York had the following famous members in attendance: Gov. Dewitt Clinton, Clinton Roosevelt, Charles Dana, and Horace Greeley. The Lodge in Virginia included Thomas Jefferson as a member.

Lightning struck a courier of the Illuminati in 1785, he was carrying plans for the French Revolution addressed to the International Bankers. These documents were confiscated by the Bavarian authorities. Later, 4 professors, who were briefly in and left the Illuminati, were summoned to appear before the Bavarian Court of Inquiry. Baron von Zwack’s home was assailed and additional documents were confiscated. As a consequence of the deliberations of the Court of Inquiry, all clandestine organizations were banished from Bavaria and Weishaupt and his associates were denounced as heretics/cultists.

In 1786, the Bavarian Court published their findings as The Original Writings of the Order and Sect of the Illuminati. Weishaupt escaped to Saxe-Gotha, Switzerland. In Switzerland, Weishaupt reorganized the Illuminati to appear on the surface to be composed of legitimate groups; the German Union and The League of the Just (with sub-groups of Literary Societies and Reading Clubs). He also sought the Masonic Lodges in France through Count Mirabeau, who established the Jacobin Society in Paris (which consolidated all 266 Lodges of the Grand Orient in France under one head). Through this newly formed French organization, and with the aid of the International Bankers, the “reign of terror” and the French Revolution through 1789 were directed and executed.

Shortly thereafter, two other works were authored: Proofs of a Conspiracy Against All the Religions and Governments of Europe, Carried on in the Secret Meetings of Free Masons, Illuminati, and Reading Societies by John Robison, Professor of Natural Philosophy at Edinburgh University in 1797; and Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism by The Abbe Barruel (in French and translated into English by Robert Clifford) in 1798, which further exposed the secret plans of the Illuminati.

The U. S. Constitution was ratified in 1789, and Art. 1, Sec. 8, Sub. Sec. 5, stated, “Congress shall have the power to coin money (and) regulate the value thereof”. The succeeding year, the central Bank of North America folded, with $12,000,000 in foreign debt and $42,000,000 in domestic debt outstanding. Despite this fact, this central bank was renamed the Bank of the United States of America and was chartered for another twenty years.

In 1811 (after the 20-year charter expired without renewal) the central bank was replacedby individual “State Banks.” This resulted in the War of 1812, which was staged and funded by the International International Bankers. In 1816, the central bank was revived and given another twenty year Charter. In 1830, Weishaupt died at the age of 82. On his death-bed, he feigned repentance back to his Catholic roots, in order to divert the focus away from the Illuminati.Guiseppe Mazzini succeeded Weishaupt in 1834, and took over the leadership of the Illuminati.

All this time, the Illuminati were developing their “relationships with their fellow occultists in Egypt to play a pivotal role in the conspiracy against Islam”. This plan involved the British spy network recruiting a disgruntled Muslim, Mohammed Abdul Wahhab (1712-1792), as a British agent to legitimize the killing of one Muslim by another, under the guise of holy war(“Jihad”).

In 1746, the Saudi ruling family, from the Aniza tribe (“being secret Jews” and part of the Illuminati family), agreed to maintain political authority in the region and allow the Wahhabis (followers of Abdul Wahhab) to run the cult. In 1776, “Abdul Wahhab asserted himself as ruler of the Muslims of the world.Abdul Wahhab died in 1792, and Abdul Aziz took over the reins of the Wahhabi movement. Aziz was murdered in 1803.His son Saud ibn Abdul Aziz then succeeded him.” The Wahhabis continued to annihilate the Ottoman Empire, from within, until Saud ibn Abdul Aziz died in 1814. And, “Despite their first defeat, the Wahhabis regrouped in Najd, establishing a brand-new capital in Riyad” and made fresh plans to continue to “dismember the Ottoman State”

Although the Illuminati were well-established and connected to the International International Bankers by the time of Adam Weishaupt’s death, and appeared to be swelling to another flood from the Devil, God continued to raise the standard of the Eschatological Gospel to fight against this new form of the ancient Babylonian Mysteries cult religion (disguised as a secret organization, society or order). Just before to this and around the time of the French Revolution, the revivification of the Eschatological Gospel began on several fronts.
