Concealed Hand Sings And Gestures In The Illuminati And Freemasonry

What is the true meaning of secret occult handshakes? Why is the Freemasonry sign language closely tied to ancient satanic practices and rituals? What exactly are they trying to communicate?

Most importantly why do the Illuminati value secrecy so highly? Why all the mysterious, encoded symbols and codes? One finds many reasons. For one thing, the psychopath – these are the kind of people who belong to secret societies, seem to be drawn to the darkness, to mysterious perversions and deep occultism.

Right Hand Or Left Hand
From Duncan’s Ritual And Monitor Of Freemasonry, published in 1866 by Malcom C. Duncan.

To maintain their rotten and corrupt body of secrets, the Illuminati leaders and groups employ symbols. The rites, ceremonies, hand signs, and grips of the Illuminists are based on the science and art of symbolism.

The ruling elite use many symbols and signs to hide and obfuscate their magical work and alchemy. In the Blue Lodge (the first three degrees), the initiate takes an oath of obligation, pledging:

“I will always hail, ever conceal, and never reveal, any of the arts, parts, or points of the hidden mysteries of Ancient Free Masonry…”

Listen to the admission of Albert Pike, former Sovereign Grand Commander who was magnificently praised as a ‘Masonic Prometheus – a king among men by the divine right of merit’, by 33rd degree Freemason, occultist and historian Manly P. Hall:

“Masonry, like all the Religions, all the Mysteries, Hermeticism, and Alchemy, conceals it`s secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of it`s symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled, to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light, from them, and to draw them away from it.”

At Right: The Sabazios Hand. Bronze symbol of the syncretic Jewish mystery cult of Sabazios in Asia Minor. Circa First Century, C.E. (Collection of the British Museum).

Why is the use of the hand considered to be so significant as a means of concealed communications by occultists? The Herder Dictionary of Symbols states that the hand is ‘a symbol of activity and power.’ It notes that finding oneself ‘in the hands of a ruler or god means being in that person’s power, but also standing under that person’s protection.’

J. C. Coopers’s An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Traditional Symbols, the author notes that hand signs include the following symbolic meanings:

Hand on Breast – submission and the attitude of a servant or slave
Crossed at wrist (X) – binding or being bound
Hand on neck – sacrifice
Clenched fist – threat, aggression
Raised hand – adoration, worship, horror, amazement
Both hands raised, palm outward – weakness, supplication, acknowledgment, adoration, admiration
Raised to head – thought, care, intellect, wisdom

Numerical hand signs from a Renaissance text on mathematics. Such usage often combines the teachings of numerology with the secret messages of hand communications.

There is a great symbolic difference between the use of the left and right hands. The right hand is said to be the hand of blessing, a good and positive influence, and those who use it in the occult world are known as those on the ‘right-handed path.’ This is considered ‘white magic.’ Those on the left-handed path, however, are practitioners of ‘black magic.’ Full-fledged Satanists are typically of the left-handed path, though, in reality, it does not matter to the devil which hand is used. In heaven, Jesus, of course, is believed to sit at the right hand of God, not the left.

Grand Master Jacques de Molay of the Knights Templar, predecessor to today`s Freemasonry and other secret societies. Accused of blasphemy and of worshiping the grotesque idol of Baphomet, the horned goat-god. The sign he is giving his captors seems clearly to be the vulgar and obscene ‘up yours’ gesture.
Depiction of de Molay being burned at the stake by the King of France on March 11, 1314.
Although, de Molay was reputed also to be a homosexual, today`s international Masonic Lodges honor their former Grand Master by naming their youth groups as ‘deMolays’.

As we know the llluminati worship deity by many names in many disguises. One such name and disguise is ‘Jahbuhlun’. In pursuit of their worship of this false god, Jahbuhlun, they have devised many rituals in which they employ ‘hidden’ hand signs.

In all the 33 degrees of Scottish Rite Freemasonry and in the rituals of the York Rite, the Order of Skull and Bones, the Ordo Templi Orientis, the Grand Orient Lodge of France, the Grand Lodge of Jerusalem, and on and on in almost all the secret societies and orders, hand signs, and handshakes are prominent.

Many secret orders and societies display and use secret handshakes and signs. In Wales (Great Britain) the Order of the True Ivorites was established in 1836 and prospered for many years. Some believe two lodges of Ivorites still exist today. Pictured here are some of their secret signs and handshakes.

Keep in mind that it is sometimes very difficult to judge and evaluate a particular handshake, hand sign, pose or grip. For one thing, even though a masonic reference book or occult textbook may clearly spell out the specifications for a type of grip or sign, the people who practice it are not always so precise.

A few signs of the Rosirrucian Order. Many are similar to those of Freemasonry and other secret societies. The penalty sign related to having one’s throat cut is shown at number X.

Still, even taking into account the human factor, it is possible to identify many of the hand signs and poses given and used by the elite.

Most Common Masonic Signs And Gestures
Masons pay homage to their Satanic god, Jahbulun, in performing the ritual ‘Three Times Three’ in the Royal Arch, or Seventh Degree. Notice the serpents depicted around them. (page 225 from Duncan`s Masonic Ritual and Monitor, 3rd edition).

A perverse sense of false pride is a major factor that motivates men to be active as Illuminati operatives and to communicate by secret handshakes, signs, and by other occult media. To smugly conceive of oneself as superior in enlightenment, in class status, in social connections, and in other artificial aspects is common to the elite. The promotion upward of the initiate degree-by-degree is purposely designed to create the impression that he is gaining knowledge forbidden to the unenlightened multitudes outside the order. A system of awards, jewels to be worn, covert handshakes and cryptic signs shared also reinforces the ideology that the individual is special and superior.

Masonic Handshakes And Grips
Masonic handshakes and grips from Duncan`s Masonic Ritual and Monitor, 3rd edition.) As we see a person outside the ‘inner circle’ would not grasp the meaning of these secret handshakes. Click on the images below for more detailed representation.
Freemasonry And Mormonism
Excerpt from the book, Mormonism’s Temple of Doom, by William Schnoebelen and James Spencer. The two authors are both ex-Mormons. In their book, they show the remarkable parallels between the secret signs, grips, and rituals of Freemasonry and those of the Mormon (LDS) Church. Mormonism’s founder, Joseph Smith, was a Mason, and all Masonic authorities today acknowledge the similarity of the two groups rituals, symbols, signs, and doctrines.
A painting of American religious leader and a ‘Prophet’ Joseph Smith. Take a closer look at his right hand on his hip, the same Masonic ‘M’ gesture indicating and sending a signal that he belongs to the Luciferian ‘brotherhood’.

The ‘sign of distress’ was reportedly given by Mormon founder Joseph Smith as he lay dying on the floor of an Illinois jail on a variety of criminal charges. Lying bleeding and desperate, Smith’s raspy voice could be heard crying out the plaintive, Masonic wail, calling on Masons to help a brother in dire trouble, ‘Is there no help for the widow’s son?’

Joseph Smith no doubt could not believe that he, a man who claimed to be God’s Chosen Prophet but who secretly worshiped Lucifer, he, a man of such superior intellect and endowed with the occult gift of spiritual enlightenment, was about to meet his Maker, a victim of a vigilante mob who despised him.

In Conclusion

Remember, it is quite difficult to distinguish between those who actually belong and practice these secret occult rituals, and between those who are completely ignorant and simply misplaced their hand in a certain manner. First and foremost, validate if the person is in any way connected with Luciferian cabal, and only then come to your own accusations. The best way to identify this by analyzing the same pattern.

The elite of the Illuminati and secret societies are themselves divided by rank and authority. There is a hidden inner circle, followed by a several hundred – member core. Next, we have a larger circle of influence, and then finally, tens of thousands of puppets, if not more. The latter group, the puppets, have no real influence on matters of importance. This group includes celebrities, media representatives, educators, and others who are only vaguely aware that an elitist global conspiracy exists. They simply know that they must hew to the ‘party line.’ The puppets also realize they must maintain a strict form of political correctness by promoting globalism and the approved socialist agenda. However, we can recognize their alliance by the signs and symbols they make.

Thank you for your diligence. The crossroads of being bad is becoming aware of yourself being bad. You can’t simply point to an isolated occurrence. Evil is a frame of mind, not some isolated work. And when it’s your turn which choice do you make? When you become aware of where things are going… left or right? This is the built in trick. It’s neither right or left. There is no black or white magic. Magic is magic used is a means to lead astray… which is right and left. The object is to walk STRAIGHT. NARROW IS THE GATE.

All bullshit. At the end of the day, all that these weirdos want to do is rape babies and children. All of this foolery just makes them feel like they are above your average paedo. and therefore somehow more ‘respectable’. I doubt most masons would know half of all that – but they would know how to rape a baby.

“When the Prophet Joseph Smith faced death, he said, ‘I am going like a lamb to the slaughter; but I am calm as a summer’s morning; I have a conscience void of offense towards God, and towards all men.’
This Is what Joseph smith said not what this article claims.

Yomomma, Jesus went like a lamb to the slaughter.

Joseph Smith went out like a gangster, with a gun in his hand after shooting three men.

Joseph wounded all three with his pistol, and …Gallaher shot Joseph as he ran to the window.

According to Hay, …Gallaher was a young man from Mississippi who was shot in the face. Hay described Voras (Voorhees) as a “half-grown hobbledehoy from Bear Creek” whom Joseph shot in the shoulder.”
