Eliphas Levi became a Freemason on March 14, 1861, and authored many books that have become classics in occult literature. Many more things than we have already shared could be said about Eliphas Levi but the information we are dwelling on here is the Luciferian doctrine that Levi passed on to another Freemason of great repute, Albert Pike.
Pike was the Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite from 1859-1891 and is called by many the most powerful and influential American Mason of all time. His book, "Morals and Dogma", which was published by the Supreme Council is still a Masonic classic of great impact. Levi thought of Lucifer not as a person, but as a force; the pantheistic god of the New Age movement, the great magical agent that could be used for good or evil. He explains:
"They have said that the Great Magical Agent - accurately termed Lucifer because it is the vehicle of light and the receptacle of all forms is a mediating force diffused throughout creation." (Eliphas Levi, "The History of Magic", Samuel Weiser 1913, p. 159)
In the Luciferian doctrine of Eliphas Levi, Satan and Lucifer were not evil in the craft sense, they were just another side of Levi's pantheistic god.
"Thus Satan is not the ruler of the realm of shadow, he is the agent of light behind a veil. He is of service to God, he performs God's work: God has not rejected him, for he holds him still in his hand... What is the Devil then, in the final analysis? The Devil is God working evil." (Eliphas Levi, "The Book of Splendours, The Inner Mysteries of QabalismIts relation ship to Freemasonry, Numerology & Tarot", Samuel Weiser Inc. 1973, p. 72)
This is the God of Star Wars, not a personal God but just a force that can be used for good like Luke Skywalker or can also be used for evil, like Darth Vader.
Albert Pike teaches the same Luciferian doctrine in what is probably the most widely used and honored Masonic book of all time, "Morals and Dogma":
"The true name of Satan, the Kabalists say, is that of Yahveh reversed; for Satan is not a black god, but the negation of God. The Devil is the personification of Atheism or Idolatry. For the Initiates, this is not a Person, but a Force, created for good, but which may serve for evil. It is the instrument of Liberty or Free Will. They represent this Force, which presides over the physical generation, under the mythologic and horned form of the God Pan; thence came the he-goat of the Sabbat, brother of the Ancient Serpent, and the Light-bearer or Phosphor, of which the poets have made the false Lucifer of the legend." (Albert Pike, "Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry", 1871 L. H. Jenkins Inc., p. 102)
Most Freemasons don't know the passage above is a direct quote from page 161 of "The History of Magic", by the master occultist Eliphas Levi. Albert Pike speaks once again about Lucifer the light-bearer in Morals and Dogma.
"Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish Souls? Doubt it not! (Albert Pike, "Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry", 1871 L. H. Jenkins Inc., p. 321)
Once again, few Freemasons realize that Albert Pike is quoting directly from page 36 of "The History of Magic" by Eliphas Levi. The fact that Albert Pike takes his Luciferian doctrine directly from the occultist Freemason Eliphas Levi can be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Another one of Eliphas Levi's occult drawings is called "The Great Symbol of Solomon". This drawing from Eliphas Levi's book, "Transcendental Magic", also portrayed the false idea that God has an evil side to him as well as a good side. It was explained as:
"The great Symbol of Solomon. The Double Triangle of Solomon, represented by the two Ancients of the Kabalah; the Macroprosopus and the Microprosopus; the God of Light and the God of Reflections; of mercy and vengeance; the white Jehovah and the black Jehovah. (Eliphas Levi, translated by A.E. Waite, "Transcendental Magic", Samuel Weiser, Inc. 1896, p. 161)
The same drawing also appears in a recent book called, "A Bridge to Light", published by the Supreme Council, 33rd degree Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry Southern Jurisdiction.
