Should I Join the Illuminati?



Should I Join the Illuminati?

22 February 2017 Hits:20004

It’s a question I thought I should get some feedback on before taking things any further.  It all came about when I recently received an email from The Order of Illuminati’s League of Billionaires (I presume they are the billionaires because I’m certainly not).  According to this email I am now amongst the privileged few to belong to the one percent that controls the other ninety nine percent.”  Because of this my “destiny to wealth and greatness has today been fulfilled by The Great Owl.”  It goes on …

“You have been cleansed and picked amongst the struggling billions of humans and have today been set aside for greatness, fame and unending gratification.  You are amongst the chosen ones and will someday rule your country.  The Owl welcomes you to the Table of the Privileged.  Welcome to The Order Of Illuminati.”

The invitation was sent by Prof. Sylvie Letreux (Zone HQ Rec, The Order of Illuminati) and gives an email address in the USA.  As soon as I respond I will be initiated into the Secret Order and then I “will immediately be assigned a Sponsor. A Sponsor is an Older Member that will invest in your Business, Organization, and Projects in Millions to bring you up to sudden Fame and Limelight. Your Sponsor can also wish to give you a famous job in a Globally recognized Organization upto the Level of a Director. The Baseline is to bring you up to Fame and Peace.”  All I need to do is send my C.V. to the Illuminati email address.  So, should I join the Illuminati?  I’m thinking “no” for three reasons:

Firstly, the email is obviously a scam.  The spelling and grammar is terrible and most certainly not written by an educated or wealthy person.  I didn’t click on the email address because it probably contains a virus.  At the very least it smacks of a scam from somewhere in Eastern Europe or North Africa.  This may sound obvious but Australians lost $229 million to scams in 2015.

Secondly, the promises of “sudden” wealth, greatness, power, fame and unending gratification appeal to our base human nature that is at war with the spiritual nature we receive in Christ (Galatians 5:17).  While God is certainly not against these things (there are plenty of godly people who are famous, wealthy and powerful) they should not be things we seek in and of themselves.  As the Bible warns, “Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.  For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced (Lit. crucified) themselves with many griefs.”   Wealth, greatness, power and fame are huge responsibilities and unless you have the character to undergird them, they can ruin you and others.

My third reason for not joining the Illuminati is that it simply doesn’t exist – at least not any more.  The Bavarian Illuminati was an Enlightenment-era secret society founded in 1776 to oppose superstition, the restriction of information, religious influence over public life and abuses of government power.  It took the Owl of Minerva (The Great Owl) as its symbol, according to Greek and Roman mythology, was a mark of knowledge and wisdom.  At its peak the Illuminati had about 650 members (although some in the group claimed it was more like 2,500).  The Bavarian Illuminati was plagued by internal power struggles, indiscretions and divisions and eventually declined in the late 1700s.

In the centuries since that time the existence of the Illuminati has been written and spoken about by a number of people, not least some Christian ministers and ministries.  But there is little or no evidence of it being a large, secret organisation that controls banks, businesses and governments all working behind the scenes to bring about a New World Order.  Christians who believe and teach this have a very unorthodox view of Scripture and Bible prophecy that is based more upon novels like The Left Behind and The Last Jihad series rather than the Bible.  While these may be a good read they do very little (other than entertain the reader and make the author very rich) to increase one’s knowledge and understanding of God’s Word.

Today there are some small groups that claim to be descended from the Bavarian Illuminati but they are anything but secret.  In fact they publicise this in order to gain more members.

The email from the “Illuminati” finished as follows:

“This is your Destiny. You had a strange dream recently. It was the Owl that visited you.”  Indeed I often have strange dreams but they usually follow a late dinner of a pizza with too much cheese!  As for what The Great Owl thinks?  I couldn’t give two hoots!

Very helpful to me, thanks for yo nice remarks! God bless you and yo family.

Pauline Fyanssays:

Regardless of whether this is a scam or the real thing, it can only lead to a nasty outcome for you. These sort of ‘temptations’ are for the weak minded. Anyone who is attracted to fame, wealth and power is not in touch with their soul, or with love. Only love will save us in the end, not this empty rubbish.

Steven Butler (disciple of Jesus)says:

Interesting request Rod, we all know that we can’t serve God and be focused on wealth as you have said, but as a past member of satanic lodges I question your assumption that this lodge is extinct, 3 years ago we were brought before court in Canberra for calling one of these satanic lodges to account. The Illuminati may not be in it’s original form, but the creed still exists. Stay well clear of anything to do with it, your witness for Jesus will cease immediately.

Greg Carricksays:

All those secret handshakes… as bad as remembering too many passwords.


No stay well clear.
It probably is a scam. And money does not mean that much to most of us. It is a means to an end, that end being generosity.
You are already famously loved by God.

The illuminati is real though. This is not the usual rectuitment program.

Rod Masonsays:

Hi Rob, your blog puts me in mind of another “cult” which is deemed to be “A Society of Secrets” as distinct from a Secret Society. I’m sure you can guess the one to which I’m referring, and I would very much like to spend a bit of time with you to get your perspective on the “pro’s and con’s” of this organisation ( if indeed there are any “pro’s”!). My interest is purely for personal reasons.


Lol. Loved this post. Also, what cracked me up this morning was “Everyday with Jesus” -> “Every now and then with Jesus” haha


To be honest I found the title of this blog pretty disturbing. There is real evil out there and plenty of occultism secret societies so it’s not even a question of should you join- it’s more an issue of why you should run in the opposite direction as fast as possible!!!!

Greg Hallsays:

Well Rob, I love your sense of humour, and also the historical root of all the hysterical claims the are around today. For a person grounded in the truth of Jesus’ resurrection and ascension, there are no secrets worth following, but the mystery of God’s love for us.
I like your responses, I’m sure it would do well for those scammers to come clean and sit under your discipleship.
I have a thing about owls too. They are beautiful creatures, lovingly crafted by the Lord for our pleasure. Seeing those youtube owl babies is a joy indeed. Thanks for the laugh. I get enough spam as well.


I’m intrigued as to why you don’t know about the illuminati? The owners of all banks globally are the Rothchilds. They’re worth is over 200 trillion dollars.
They own politicians and defence etc. Goldman Sachs, Rockefeller etc.
They own Facebook, google pharmaceutical companies they have the cure for all diseases, they use artists of all kinds to send their message to vulnerable children. The Monarch and the Pope. I’m surprised you don’t know who these people are. I’ve studied them for over 5 years.
I worked in the financial system and God opened my eyes to help me understand that there are those who do evil. Yet it is He who is still in control.
But to deny they don’t exist in my view is ignorance.
There are so many people who have testified escaping these groups. But later were found dead. I wonder why. Is it a coincidence? Just something to ponder.
God bless


I always stay with the real light of Jesus. I do not go to any church or belong to any. However, I was touch truly touched by Jesus. I was driving many years ago with my very young children in the car. We left at 2 am in the morning heading up north in WA for a family holiday. It was 8.15 am I fell asleep at the wheel, a hand touch my shoulder I opened my eyes, I was on the wrong side of the road with a car heading straight for me. I looked behind and went to say thank you to the child whom I thought touched my shoulder, they were all asleep. I know Jesus was there he saved me and my whole family. How could I ever turn my back on Jesus knowing he saved me literally. He has given me all the wealth and happiness that I need in this life. I walk in Jesus’s light and tell my family stay in the light don’t go to the darkness.’ Do good, love all, give what you can to help others. Blessed by Jesus I am.
