19—The Temple Veil

Speaking of veils, we are now at the veil of the LDS temple. This is the crowning moment of the endowment rite. Having been taught the "True Order of Prayer", we are next shown the Veil. This bears little resemblance to the veil of the temple of the Bible. It is a thin, gossamer kind of cloth with holes cut into it identical to the marks stitched on the temple garment, only larger. This veil is where we will go to have our knowledge of all the secret words and grips tested in a ritual similar to the central teaching of the Tibetan Book of the Dead.

We clasp hands through the holes in the veil with a temple worker on the other side who represents the Mormon god. Then a little catechism proceeds of sign/countersign which is quite identical to Masonic practice. (48) A veil worker is present to be certain that we get all the grips and words precisely right – especially the first-timers.

Since I had on a pink tag indicating I was a first-timer, my veil worker was especially pleased to see how well I knew all the tokens. He probably thought I was especially spiritual. I didn’t have the heart to tell him that I’d learned all of them already in witchcraft rites. And I’m sure he wouldn’t have believed me.

The final name of the Melchizedek priesthood is only given "through the veil, on the Five Points of Fellowship." This is a term used in both Masonry and witchcraft. In Masonry, its meaning and execution are identical to the temple rite, except there is no veil. In Druidic Wicca, the meaning and execution are also identical, but in other rites of Wicca, the meaning and execution are more sexually explicit. (49)

We embrace through the veil on the Five Points, and I received the highest secret of the endowment whispered into my right ear. This is just like all real occult secrets. True magickal secrets are never supposed to be written down, but only communicated orally. They are passed down by word of mouth from initiator to initiate. This is why some of these occult "secrets" mentioned in this piece are so difficult to document; because they are regarded so highly that they are never committed to paper!

American Masonry has vestiges of this in that they do not allow their ritual monitors to be printed except in a cipher and the ultimate Blue Lodge Masonry is communicated exactly like the temple secret: orally and in low breath on the Five Points of Fellowship.

In any event, this "Second Name of the Melchizedek Priesthood" was given me by the worker on the other side of the veil. I found it was virtually a verbatim copy of a blessing that the pontiff of Satan gives his followers after the black mass. Here I was, at the pinnacle of LDS sanctity, and I was hearing a Satanic invocation! Here is the Satanic version:

"May you have health in the navel and marrow in the bones, strength in your **** and in your sinews; and power in the priesthood be upon you and upon your posterity through all generations of time and throughout all eternity. Selah!"

And here is the LDS temple version:

"This is the name of the token: health in the navel, marrow in the bones, strength in the loins and in the sinews, power in the Priesthood be upon me and upon my posterity through all generations of time and throughout all eternity."

This invocation seals the Satanic bondage of the temple endowment upon the temple patron’s children and even grandchildren. Note that there is not a meaningful whit of difference between the Satanic blessing and the temple token, even though this token is supposed to be the highest blessing available to a Mormon in this life. (50)

If this seems unbelievable, just look at the content of this "sacred" invocation: "health…strength…power…." Nothing there that would offend a witch. Where are the Christian virtues: charity, faith, hope? The fruit of the Spirit?

Face it, this is a pagan prayer. Nowhere is Jesus, salvation, or heaven even mentioned. Just the same destiny that witches believe await them: eternal power, celestial sex, and spiritual evolution on a never-ending ego trip. The way of the world is Manipulation, Seduction and Power; Christianity is the way of Sacrifice, Submission and Service.

After being drawn through the veil by the Patriarchal grip, we were all led to the Celestial Room – a huge, airy room looking like a lush hotel lobby done in off-whites. This represents the Celestial Kingdom, the goal of every devout Mormon.

If you were to be married, you would be ushered upstairs for your sealing. The sealing allegedly seals you and your mate together for time and all eternity in heaven (contrary to Jesus’ teaching in Luke 20:35). It is also similar in many respects to the wedding, called a handfasting, which we had undergone in 1973. Then we were in a forest clearing near Zion State Park north of Chicago and were surrounded by almost 200 witches.
