Illuminati Overview

For many, the thought of a secret cabal pulling the strings of governments and cultures around the world seems too fantastical for serious consideration. For others, it seems plausible but too muddy and distorted to sort out. 

I recently watched an interview on geopolitical topics and the guest said that if such a group exists, they seem limited to Western Europe and the US. From my own research, I think the topic warrants attention, however this overview isn’t to suggest agreement or disagreement on whether or not they have sufficient power to carry out their agenda. Nevertheless, there is ample evidence to support the existence of such a group that wields significant power and influence, and that group firmly believes in its plan. To dismiss this outright requires ignoring a great deal of documentation and personal accounts stretching back at least hundreds of years, and according to some, thousands of years.

The brief summary is this. There is a group of 13 families whose bloodlines go back centuries. They run the show and they head up various regions around the world. From those families, some say there is a council of 10 men who oversee everything: banking, military, science, education, culture, etc. Other researchers combine this council with the council of 13 bloodlines. The next level is a committee of 300, who oversee all the major think tanks. These groups, in turn, control the world’s financial institutions. From there they control the corporations, governments, religions, etc. Interwoven in this pyramid structure are secret societies, past and present, that provide the spiritual, financial and political framework to attain their objectives.

Why it matters

The reason this even matters is because these folks impact your life, unless you are able to unplug from modern banking and technology. While some people can and do, most of us are tied to the world’s system through employment, housing debt and daily financial transactions, not to mention the Internet and mobile phones.

Their ultimate goal is as old as time. Today, it’s stated in the objectives of transhumanists. They tout technological advancements that will enhance human biology and extend life. You can read all about the transhumanists’ aims with a quick Internet search. Or you can simply look in the book of Genesis where it says,

But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die.

That’s the goal. Immortality through technocracy with a few elite at the helm and the rest of us cattle their slaves. Their plans will fail but the journey means trials for you and me.

The Illuminati defined

The following summaries concerning one of the most referenced control groups, the Illuminati, is comprised of excerpts from what others who have spent years researching the topic have written, or in one case, from their own personal experience.

Take it at face value, with a grain of salt, or with a side glance of healthy skepticism. However you take it, remember that the ruler of everything in this world’s system is a single entity known as Lucifer or Satan (some authors contend they are two different beings) and that Scripture warns us to 

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith.

I personally think there is enough evidence to support the claim that there are people in high places with significant influence who are in touch with entities from other dimensions – who they believe give them power to achieve their goals. While there is debate about who or what these entities are, I think that God tells us plainly in Scripture that they are part of the heavenly host who rebelled against the Most High God and that they have subjugated these families/bloodlines to do their bidding, which ultimately is to provide a false version of God’s plan.

This counterfeit version has ruined and will destroy many more before their day of reckoning arrives. But, if you are a disciple of Jesus, be encouraged that, 

You know him who is from the beginning,[and that] you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one. 1 John 2:14.

Secret Brotherhood of the Illuminati

Robin de Ruiter

“The secret Brotherhood of the Illuminati was officially founded in 1530 in Spain. Their goals are based on the famous Constantinople Letter of December 22, 1489, in which plans were made to conquer the leadership of the world. In 1773 the plans stipulated in the Constantinople Letter were restored, modernized and developed further in consultation with the founder of the bank company Rothschild. During a secret gathering, to which several members of the most influential families were invited,

Mayer Amschel Rothschild commented, ‘If we combine forces, we can rule the world.’ The eventual goal was to create a World Dictatorship with One World Leader at the top. The letter and meeting provided a structural plan of how to control all aspects of humanity by withholding of information and restriction of freedom. Manipulating the media and censoring the truth would allow for the puppeteering of the world. Mankind would be a mere toy controlled by a few powerful families that dominate the ultimate economic, financial and political world stage. The ultimate goal was to reduce human interest to a point where they would agree to anything, therefore setting up the stage for a One-World Leader. Nobody would care, and the few remaining opponents could easily be eliminated.” 1Worldwide Evil and Misery, The Legacy of the 13 Satanic Bloodlines”, p28

Svali - former Illuminati trainer

“The Illuminati are a group of people who follow a philosophy known as “Illuminism” or “enlightenment”. The Illuminati were named several hundred years ago, but trace their roots and history to the ancient mystery religions of Egypt, ancient Babylon, and even Mesopotamia. Out of these ancient religions, which were practiced secretly over hundreds and hundreds of years, there arose esoteric groups which continued to practice the rites, traditions, and enculturation brought in from the original groups.

“Over the centuries, these groups practiced openly in some countries, and covertly in countries where Christianity or other religions opposed their practices. Some of the groups which came out of these ancient roots included the order of the Knights Templar, Rosicrucians, Baphetomism, and Druidic cults. These groups were the forerunners, or roots, of modern day Illuminism. The original Illuministic leaders chose to take what they felt were the best practices of each root religion, combine them into principles, then organized these principles according to specific guidelines.

“Modern day Illuminism is a philosophy funded by the wealthy, but practiced in all social strata. It is a philosophy whose tenets have spread across the world. It started with the German branch of Rosicrucians, spread to England, then came to the United states with the first settlers.

“Are the Illuminati out to rule the world? Yes, and this is what they teach their members. They are working avidly towards this goal even as I write. Will they succeed? Not if our nation turns to prayer and repentance, and asks the mercy of God on the world. The Bible teaches that only God knows when the end times will come, and also teaches that God is holding back that time in order that “none may perish”, that all may have a chance to repent and turn to Him. This kind of faith can prevent the domination of evil in a world that often seems hopelessly snared in the coils of the enemy.

“The choice is up to us. God offers the choice, and we must decide to take a stand and pray. To pray for our nation, to pray for individuals caught in groups that teach lies and deception. To pray for ourselves, for the spiritual strength to resist evil when it occurs and to choose righteousness and the love of Christ instead of selfishness.

“To be those who are not merely bystanders, watchers of moral decay, in a world where evil won because “good men did nothing”, but instead to be those who follow Jesus and “did something” to make a difference.”2The Life of Svali – an Ex-Illuminati Mind Control Programmer –

Wes Penre

“The Illuminati (not to be confused with the Bavarian Illuminati; more about that later) is a very secretive group of occult practitioners who have been around for thousands and thousands of years and are using the Jewish Cabala as one of their guidelines to oppress the rest of the population.

“It is not a boys’ club or a group of adults trying to get some excitement in life; this is something much bigger and much more sinister. It is an extremely well structured organization consisting of people in very High Places. Those people are the Super Wealthy, who stand above the law. Many of them don’t even appear on the list of the wealthiest people in the world – they are that secret. What is driving them is power, money and control over life and death of others and themselves.”3Illuminati News, “The Secret order of the Illuminiti, A Brief History of the Shadow Government
