Was King James I a Freemason?

Hello everyone, and thanks for coming back. You probably thinking wow! Troy, haven’t you picked on King James enough? Well no, there is one more thing that may, ( and I believe it does), also be added to his evil resume, and that’s the spreading of Freemasonry to England. Freemasonry plays a very pivotal role in the building of the third temple, what they call Solomon’s temple, and they tie Into the Illuminati, and the Mystic Jews, that form the Cabala, or “Kabbalah,” which is behind the Zionist movement today. All these groups are from an evil origin, and all three have and end time vision of a one world government, headed by the final antichrist. So therefore you know that I’m not talking about all those Freemason lodges you see in every small town America, with lower degree Masons…nope, I’m talking about the big guns at the upper degrees of Freemasonry. So if any of you my readers, are not at all familiar with Freemasonry, I’m going to give a very short introduction to them, but later in this study, we will be looking at the Freemason’s extensively, along with the Cabala, and the Illuminati. So first let’s take a quick look at Freemasonry, and then dive into King James, and his possible connection, with this craft.

Freemasonry- To be fair I will get this information right from a Freemason sight, so all my readers will know that it’s not just me talking. Plus the best place to go to get information is right at the source.
This is from the Masonic Service Association of North America.


No one knows with certainty how or when the Masonic Fraternity was formed. A widely accepted theory among Masonic scholars is that it arose from the stonemasons’ guilds during the Middle Ages. The oldest document that makes reference to Masons is the Regius Poem, printed about 1390, which was a copy of an earlier work. In 1717, four lodges In London formed the first Grand Lodge of England, and records from that point on are more complete. Within thirty years, the fraternity had spread throughout Europe and the American Colonies. George Washington was a mason, Benjamin Franklin served as the head of the fraternity in Pennsylvania, as did Paul Revere and Joseph Warren in Massachusetts. (www.msana.com)

Well that was pretty short wasn’t it? Not really a whole lot of info there. It’s funny they mention a document that dated back to 1390, but nothing after that until the mention of England, in 1717, which most people believe is when Freemasonry began in England, therefore they believe that its impossible for King James I to have been a Mason. And with this article from the Masons, how would we really know any different. So what I want to do at this point, is now explore the so-called “conspiracy” look behind the Masons, not a complete look but a small sample. Remember my friends everything is a conspiracy, everything that is ever said, written, or shown, are all conspiracies, if the group (whatever form a group may come in) doesn’t want any one to know. And how dare we show real hard factual evidence to the contrary, it’s all still just conspiracies. I have read when a Freemason was asked if the Freemasons was a secret society, the answer he gave was this. “How could we be a secret society if you know about us.” Really? I know about the Skulls and Bones to, but I sure don’t know all their little evil secrets, and I know that the secrets that secret societies have, aren’t printed in the newspaper, or posted on Facebook. Give me a break, that was a stupid answer, and I hate it when people talk to us like we are all stupid. At least that Mason could of come up with a more intelligent answer than that, you know, dazzle them with bull crap, moving on now, that was my soap box moment, for today anyways, maybe.

The Truth Behind the Freemasons, and Not Just Conspiracies – This is from a man named Richard Allen Wagner.

Richard Allen Wagner

He is a 32nd degree Scottish Rite Freemason and a Frater of the AMORC Rosicrucian Order. This is what he says, about the Freemasons.

How and Where Did it All Begin? Ask any Mason the above question and he’ll likely tell you that (in accordance with “Masonic tradition”) it all began (a) with the building of King Solomon’s Temple, and (b) Masonic knowledge was somehow transmitted over a vast time to take root in the “operative” stone Masons guilds of medieval Europe—culminating in the founding of the English Grand Lodge of “Free and Accepted Masons” in 1717. The problem with “Masonic tradition”, however, is that it rests on supposition rather than historical fact—starting with the mythical story of Hiram Abiff who, according to Masonic tradition, was the “Grand Master” architect who oversaw the construction of King Solomon’s temple. Of course there’s no historical, archeological or even Biblical evidence to support the Hiramic myth. And yet, this myth is the centerpiece for the traditional view of the origin of Freemasonry and its fundamental meaning. Freemasonry has always referred (unofficially) to various ancient esoteric schools of thought as the foundation of its philosophical tenets. Among these are Egyptian Hermeticism, the Pythagorean-Orphic mystery schools, and the Jewish Kabbalistic tradition”.

I will be covering all the above mentioned, in detail later in this study, but I just wanted to show, from the stand point of a Mason, the background behind Freemasonry. However this is but a very, very, very small tip of a very huge Iceberg, so for now that will do. If you will remember from one of my earlier posts, I explained that the mystery schools, or sometimes called mystery religions, is also called in the Bible, in Revelation, Mystery Babylon. Freemasonry also called the craft is loaded down with all kinds of symbols, (I will be covering that also), but Freemasons go through various different rituals to become higher degree Masons. In a nut shell, lower degree Masons, which I call the good ole boy Masons, the ones you see, and work with locally; they don’t have a clue what goes on in the upper degrees of their craft. They could know, if they researched outside of the craft, but inside, they are never told, you have to go through all their initiations, to learn all their evil little secrets. The upper degrees of Freemasonry are luciferian in nature, they openly worship Lucifer, (satan), and they dedicate themselves to the dark forces of satan. The following is a quote from Albert Pike from his book Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry (1871), Episcopalian-Freemason of the Scottish Rite, Albert Pike writes.

Albert “spooky” Pike

” Masonry, like all the Religions, all the Mysteries, Hermeticism and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be mislead; to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light from them and to draw them away from it”

Albert Pike himself a 33rd degree Mason, the highest admits that, the symbols, and other secrets of the Freemasons, are like the other Mystery Religions; they purposely hide the truth, unless you are considered worthy by them to know them. Now that’s a better answer than that yahoo I mentioned earlier, its evil yes, but at least the truth. The above quote is found on page 104-5 in the book.

Here is another quote from General Albert Pike, Grand Commander, sovereign pontiff of universal freemasonry, giving instructions to the 23 supreme councils of the world.

“That which we must say to the crowd is, we worship a god, but it is a god one adores without superstition. To you sovereign grand inspector general, we say this and you may repeat it to the brethren of the 32nd, 31st and 30th degrees – the Masonic religion should be by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine.”

So there you have it thus far, again there’s so much to cover on this subject, but I will leave that for later; but this does back up everything I wrote earlier, about the Freemasons. Back now to King James, how could he be a Freemason, when it took off in England, in 1717, like so many attest to? Well when I did my research on this, I went back to Scotland, because that’s where King James got his start, and I searched for freemasonry there, and this my friends is what I found. At www.guinnessworldrecords.com, I looked up the oldest Masonic lodge, and this is what I found.

The oldest written records for a Masonic lodge belong to Aitchison’s Haven kn Muddleburgh, UK. They date back to 9 Jan, 1599. The oldest written records for a Masonic lodge that is still in existence today are from The Lodge of Edinburgh (Mary’s Chapel), No. 1, UK. They date back to 31 July, 1599.

Well this is interesting, let’s find out more about this lodge, considering it is in Scotland, still in existence, located in Edinburgh Scotland, where King James was born, and was king between 1567 and 1625. For me to feel comfortable with information that I read, or use, I like to go right to the source, if at all possible, and if not right to the source, then as close as possible. So I went in search for a Freemason site, to possibly answer this question, whether or not, King James I was a Mason. This is what I found. From the web site Grand Lodge of British Columbia and Yukon

On the west wall of the lodge hall used by Lodge Scoon and Perth No. 3 in Perth, Scotland can be found a mural depicting James VI (King James I of England) kneeling at their altar at his initiation. The oldest existing record of the lodge, called “The Mutual Agreement” of 24 December, 1658, records that James was “entered Freemason and Fellowcraft of the Lodge of “Scoon” on 15 April, 1601. (www.freemasonry.bcy.ca)

Well, it wasn’t in the Edinburgh lodge, but it was in one of the oldest lodges still in existence today in Scotland, for me that settles the question; was King James I a Freemason? He became a Freemason before he became King of England. That’s going to be it for today, in the next post, we will be exploring the question; did King James bring freemasonry to England, it will be a longer look, and my source, a 32nd degree Mason, because it’s really where the rubber meets the road, concerning, the craft as it is today. Bottom line King James was sinister, he was evil, I believe if it wasn’t for the Bible that has his name on it, history would have showed him in a different light. But what really gets me is, this information is not hidden in a corner now, with the internet today, we literally have the complete Alexandria Library at our finger tips, so to speak, and still so many Protestants believe, this man was a saint, I was one of them, until I decided that I was going in search for truth, I was deceived, but I woke up, I just hope more and more Christians, will wake up, and start asking themselves; am I believing the right thing, the truth, or am I believing what someone told me?
