(Continued from Part 9.)
Review: Who are the Illuminati?
Perhaps we can pause at this point and remind ourselves who the Illuminati are and how much of Earth’s power structure they were in control of until very recent times. Matthew Ward tells us:
“The Illuminati is not an organization of card-carrying members, but rather the ‘umbrella’ name of disparate groups and a large number of powerful individuals who have been controlling or heavily influencing the most important aspects of life throughout your world for centuries. In recent years they also have become known by other designations, such as the secret government, New World Order, dark cabal or the elitists; and they include the top figures in financial institutions, investment markets, multinational corporations, religions, education, media, military forces, judicial systems, entertainment, the medical ‘establishment,’ regulatory and advisory bodies, royal families, Zionists.
“They have controlled governments, started civil and international wars, caused famines and widespread impoverishment, created boom times for industrialists and depressions for the poor, released laboratory-designed viruses, assassinated opposition. They are the perpetrators of unjust laws, Satanic rituals, chemtrails and other toxic pollution, destruction of animal life on land and in the seas, mind control, the ‘illegal’ drug industry, erosion of civil rights and denial of God-given freedoms, suppression or misuse of technology, political and ideological divisiveness.” (1)
Matthew isn’t alone in saying this. The Hathors through Tom Kenyon say much the same thing:
“The type of control we speak of is so pervasive and so much a part of the fabric of your society that it is often overlooked – which is exactly what those who wish to control you work toward. …
“It comes from sources you might never suspect including religious, political and economic institutions.” (2)
What unites the Illuminati is “common darkness: their intent to rule the world and cause suffering through fear, civil and international wars, religions based on lies and divisiveness, impoverishing nations by controlling their governments and natural resources, environmental abuse, disease, tyrannical regimes, corporate corruption, unfair laws and taxation, seriously flawed education, promoting the illegal drug industry and legally drugging the population, and on and on.” (3)
The Aim of Most Organized Religions is to Control
The Illuminati have seized control of organized religion in the course of their quest for world domination. Matthew holds that the basis of most organized religions today lies in the desire to control.
“The basis of religion did not derive from noble purposes. The intent of the originators, who then ruled church and state, was to control the masses through rigorous religious rules. They decided what should constitute sinning and claimed that whoever sinned would feel the wrath of a vengeful God.” (4)
If Matthew’s views represent those of the ascended masters, Archangel Michael’s views through Ronna Herman represent the celestial point of view. He begins by calling many religious beliefs “distorted.”
“As you become Masters of Light you will begin to perceive how Sacred Truth has been distorted. You will begin to perceive how you have been enslaved for many centuries by systems of belief that taught you about your ‘imperfection’ and ‘evil.’
“You were led to believe that you were ‘fallen’ from God’s Love and Grace, and that you needed to work and suffer to be redeemed. You were taught that suffering and death were ‘punishments.’ …
“You were taught that you were damaged, and that you need to be ‘saved,’ and if not, you were destined for eternal suffering even beyond death.” (5)
The purpose of these beliefs, he said, was to enslave us and keep us at each other’s throats.
“Beloved Ones, these enslaving beliefs have kept you locked into trauma and violence for thousands of years. You have fought wars within yourselves through the forces of duality, and you have fought wars amongst yourselves as an externalization of these conflicting forces of anger and guilt as you have defended your belief systems from others with different beliefs. …
“These systems of belief kept you locked into this level of experience and have not allowed you to evolve to new levels. It was like a form of ‘soul addiction’, with souls returning to Earth to play out the same cycles and dramas of violence and suffering in the name of religion.” (6)
Perhaps the views of the Arcturian Group through Marilyn Raffaele can represent those of our galactic friends. They remind us that doctrines like original sin are meant to keep us easy to control.
“In your ignorance you have believed yourselves to be less that the lowest. Churches taught that you were worms in the dust until you performed certain rituals or believed certain doctrines. In your ignorance, you accepted this, freely giving your power to those who would then claim it for themselves, convincing you that only they knew what was best for you.
“This scenario is still happening, and there are still many who follow false and often ego inspired teachings, believing that somehow only certain humans are able to know what is the truth. You who are reading this are coming out from this umbrella of falseness.
“You are awakening to the truth of your identity and are now ready to take back the power you in your ignorance gave to the many (not all) loud and ego-driven voices of government, churches, media, etc.” (7)
While many of us believe that religions help us towards enlightenment and ascension, Matthew tells us, they were devised to keep us from it.
“The truth is, religions were devised to keep you from knowing who you truly are, to keep you ignorant of the universal laws, and to create divisiveness within the populace.
“The truth is, peoples you call ‘natives of the land’ or ‘aboriginals’ are closely attuned to the universal consciousness whereas religious dogmas, especially in
Western religions, were made through the centuries by church leaders to obliterate that natural attunement, control the masses and acquire wealth for themselves.” (8)
Matthew explained how the Illuminati used a strategy of divide and conquer to keep us in bondage. That strategy included but went well beyond religion.
“Divisiveness has long been an effective tool of the dark ones. Not content to divide the peoples only through religions, they have separated you into other conflicting camps by attaching labels to social strata, ideologies and philosophies, types of governing and political parties, and by labeling as a ‘conspiracy theorist’ anyone who disputes official claims about any situation or event. These separations have kept duality flourishing down through the generations, thus miring the population in third-density mentality.” (9)
Galactics like SaLuSa agree with Matthew.
“Separation was a game the dark Ones played to keep you at each other’s throats, but now you can refuse to continue living their lie that you are all different.
Forget the physical differences, customs and religious beliefs, as behind all of that are beautiful souls of Light exactly as you are.” (10)
These policies led to centuries of bloodshed, Matthew observed.
“In addition to controlling the masses through dogmatic teachings, religions have served the dark purpose of divisiveness to such an extent that it resulted in centuries of trauma and bloodshed. Witness the Crusades, wars between Catholics and Protestants, pogroms against Jews, executions of ‘blasphemous’ individuals who refused to ‘recant.’” (11)
One of the most successful of recent manipulations has been to blame “Muslim radicals” for false-flag incidents like 9/11, which were actually staged by the Illuminati, Matthew tells us:
“Very few of the violent incidents in that entire area are the work of the ‘Muslim radicals’ who are blamed for them -this is part of the propaganda to instill the idea that the new enemy of peace and freedom is the Islamic religion. …
“Most of the death and destruction, including many of the suicide bombings, are ‘black-ops’ activities implemented or directed by the Illuminati-controlled faction of the CIA, often using mind-controlled individuals.” (12)
The Present-Day Example of the Vatican
Many among the Company of Heaven have reserved special attention for the Vatican as a bastion of the Illuminati. When answering a question about the relationship of British royalty to the Illuminati, Matthew observed that:
“Still greater influence, though is centered in the Vatican, with its pernicious outreach of virtual mind control over its religious adherents and ruthlessness in preserving its internal secret societies and untold wealth.” (13)
The Council of Nine through Tazjima called it an instrument of destruction.
“The Church of Rome has been an instrument of destruction, a cross upon which millions of indigenous peoples and members of other religions (Judaism, Moslems, Baha’i and others) have suffered. “ (14)
Matthew detailed the nefarious activities of the top levels of the Vatican and predicted its “long reign” would soon be over.
“The Vatican, which has been a major world player under the Illuminati umbrella, is the international headquarters of Satanism, and its untold wealth includes stolen art treasures acquired in collaboration with Nazis during World War II. Any pope who raised an objection to the mammoth deceit, unconscionable behavior and amassing of fortunes was short-lived. …
“When all of that becomes public knowledge, the Vatican’s long reign will be over. The crumbling will be extremely sad and difficult for Catholics, but all devout Christians will be profoundly affected by learning that the foundation of their lives was built on lies.” (15)
Pope Francis is seen by the Company of Heaven as a reformer, overlit by St. Francis of Assisi. Here’s Sanat Kumara on the subject of the new Pope:
“Your real question is, does this individual, Francis, have the bona fides to assume this position of trust of the papacy, to be the leader of many? And whether you agree with this institution of the Catholic Church and the history of the Catholic Church, and many of the wrongdoings that have been committed in the name of Christ and God and the Holy Mother, or whether you do not, it is a new day.
“And so what I say to you is that this individual, this man, is very humble, but meaningful individual, has chosen and been chosen to step forward in this role during a time of very important transition. …
“He has been overlighted directly, not only by the Divine Mother, because that has been in place for a long time, but also by what you think of as St. Francis. Hence his name.
Now, what does overlighting mean? The overlighting means that our beloved brother Francis adds his energy, his focus and his concentration, his delight, to the energy of this Pope called Francis. So you may think of it in some ways as cohabitation. It is not that Francis, St. Francis, has assumed form, but energetically he has overlit the new Pope. Hence the query and the wondering, because the light is so strong with the combination of these two souls.” (16)
A renovation of the Catholic Church is the basis of the collaboration of St. Francis and Pope Francis. His accession to the papacy is itself one of the strongest indications of wholesale change in this new era, Sanat says.
“The agreement between these two is what is has always been, because they both knew this day would come. Or it was projected, shall we say, it would come. And that is to transform this outmoded institution and to bring it back to the Jesuit, to the Franciscan qualities. And if you go back to original purpose of humility, of poverty, of sharing, of service, of meekness, these are the things that you will see.
“The primary focus of this Pope, yes, of course will be to clean up the atrocities, particularly the sexual abuses that have been and continue to occur, and the hiding of those abuses, but it will also be to build and to rebuild the sense of community, and not in ways that build the coffers of Rome, but to share the wealth of Rome.
“It is a time of magnificent change. So often you have said to me and to the Company of Heaven and to the Divine Mother herself, to our beloved friend Michael, ‘Show me a sign.’ Well, dear heart, this is one of the biggest signs of institutional change that you can witness. So pay attention.” (17)
Organized religion has seen a tremendous loss of support in recent years, probably as a result of our awakening under the impact of the rising light levels on the planet. Tomorrow we’ll look at the fate of many among the strongly devout as we move towards full restoration.
