Pike was said to be a Satanist, who indulged in the occult, and he apparently possessed a bracelet which he used to summon Lucifer, with whom he had constant communication.
He was the Grand Master of a Luciferian group known as the Order of the Palladium (or Sovereign Council of Wisdom), (Palladism or tradional satanism, an ancient Luciferian cult) which had been founded in Paris in 1737.
Palladism had been brought to Greece from Egypt by Pythagoras in the fifth century, and it was this cult of Satan that was introduced to the inner circle of the Masonic lodges. It was aligned with the Palladium of the Templars.
In 1801, Issac Long, a Jew, brought a statue of Baphomet (Satan) to Charleston, South Carolina, where he helped to establish the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite.
Long apparently chose Charleston because it was geographically located on the 33rd parallel of latitude (incidentally, so is Baghdad), and this council is considered to be the Mother Supreme Council of all Masonic Lodges of the World.
Among eventually becoming a 33rd degree mason and a top leader of the Ku Klux Klan, Pike was also believed to be a Luciferian and he claimed he was able to summon Lucifer at will as the Grand Master of the Order of the Palladium.
This influence has flourished into modern day freemasonry in the hidden rites of the upper degrees.
Leaders of Industry, Entertainment,The CIA, Congress, and our military leaders are inundated with freemasonic Palladism or a Luciferian New World Order.
What follows are the graphically outlined plans for three world wars to usher in the Luciferian World Order funded in great part by the House of Rothschild, from a letter that Pike wrote to 33 degree Italian Illuminati head and Mafia founder Giuseppe Mazzini, dated August 15, 1871.
We can marvel at how accurately it has predicted events that have already taken place!!
In the videos below Dr. J. R. Church (First video) as well as Alex Jones (Second video) discusses Pike's vision and his letter to European Freemason leader, Giuseppe Mazzini.
