Eastern Star Female Freemason

The Order of the Eastern Star has a tangled history. Originally conceived as an American form of Adoptive Masonry as early as the 1840s, it took until 1876 for the General Grand Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star, to be formed. There are at least two separate organisations that both say that they are dedicated to the unification of all Eastern Stars, but which lead a separate existence from the General Grand Chapter and were founded in 1947 and 1962 respectively.

There is also an African-American organisation, dating from the days when American Masons officially barred blacks from membership. The General Grand Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star was founded in 1876.

It currently extends worldwide, in association (where appropriate) with the Supreme Grand Chapter of Scotland. It is open to Master Masons in good standing and their female relatives over the age of 18 years. There were 2,087,063 members in 1994.

The Eastern Stars of Freemasonry also goes back to Egypt and the worship of the female deity Aset (Isis). The female is The Eastern Star because Isis, the wife of Osiris had to travel eastward to find Osiris's body after his brother, Set, had Killed him. Osiris had to be resurrected for revenge through his son, Horus, who was also called "The Horizon."

Osiris wanted revenge on his brother Set. That's what the Sun (Son) must do. The requirements for the women who wants to be an Eastern Star are, Initiates must be women over eighteen and related to Freemasons. They must profess belief in a supreme being. There are two chief officers of a subordinate chapter, a worthy Matron and the worthy Patron, a master Mason.

The chaplain of the Chapter would lead them in its devotions of the altar, and ask blessings of the heavenly father to be upon their work. An open bible rests in the centre of the altar of the chapter room. The Five-Degrees Ritual is based upon stories of five women, four of which are in the bible, Adah, the Daughter (Genesis 4:19), Ruth, the Widow (Ruth 1:9), Esther, the Wife (Esther 2:7), Martha, the Sister (John 11:5) and Electra, the Mother.

The ritual also illustrates powerful patriarchal values, and, of course, the degrees must be conferred by a (male) Master Mason. The degrees are:

Obedience, symbolised by Adah daughter of Jepthah (daughter)
Devotion to religious values, symbolised by Ruth (widow)
Fidelity, exemplified by Esther (wife)
Faith in the Redeemer, symbolised by Martha sister of Lazarus (sister)
Charity, symbolised by Electra, identified as the “Elect Lady” in the second epistle of St. John (mother)

It is important to Stress that not all Masons worship Lucifer, only the top 5% do. A majority of this page on Freemasonry was taken from Masonic books that were published by Masonic Publishing Companies. Most of these writings were kept secret. Biblical admonition has been taken carefully, comparing Masonic teachings to the Holy Bible. In I John 4:1, we read: "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try (test) the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world."

We see that any religious teaching that does not conform to Scripture is from a "false prophet.”Many people still do not understand the importance of studying this subject to its logical conclusion. Their spiritual freedom is at stake. Remember two things about Masonry: 1) Superior Masons deliberately lie to their fellow Masons, as those Masons "deserve to be misled;" 2) Explanations given to 95% of all Masons are wrong.

This quote from Masonic author, Carl Claudy sums it all up: "Cut through the outer shell and find a meaning; cut through that meaning and find another; under it, if you dig deep enough, you may find a third, a fourth -- who shall say how many teachings?" Many who are in Masonry are not aware that they are lied to. Finally, remember Albert Pike's bold assertion in Morals & Dogma, that "Masonry is identical to the ancient Mysteries," which means that all their teachings in all their books are precisely the same as the Ancient, so called Pagan, Satanic Mysteries. (p. 624, teachings of the 28th Degree). For men it could be as high as 90 Degree and even up to 120 Degree plus more.
