Is Jay-Z A Mason???

 "Do What Thou Wilt Shall Be The Whole of the Law" -Aleister Crowley (Famous Freemason, Illuminist & Luciferian)

This really is the million dollar question. It is probably been the most speculated question about Jay-Z's life for people from all walks of life. And, all of the attention this question is getting continues to breed more speculation as to whether Jay-Z is secretly apart of this secret society called the "Freemasons" or not.We have received numerous e-mails and periodically asked what are thoughts are on the subject and we decided to use this post here to address some of those e-mails and some of those questions as well. Keep in mind, we've done a pretty extensive bible class lesson on this very same subject called; "Sleeping With The Enemy" that can be viewed on our Youtube channel (www.youtube.com/PSTRNIMMONS) and we have the ministry powerpoints to this class for "FREE" download on our website (www.michaelnimmons.com). Click the "Media" tab under the "Guestbook" category.

Let's first begin by saying that the speculation itself; as I said earlier, it helping to breed the controversy. Some would say, that Jay-Z is just playing into the hands of all of the speculators by using the symbols, signs and references to Freemasonry in his music to help to continue to stir this controversy.  To many; especially those who follow him, he is just using this is as a way to gain even more attention and more notoriety. And, sure this could very well be true. Any smart business man, which I certainly beleive he is,  knows how to ride the wave of speculation and controversy especially when it equals more money in you pocket. And, since this controversy began his star power has gone up even more. And, he knows it. So, yes there is a part of this debate that could go to notion that Jay-Z is using the speculation to his advantage.  

Here's a clip of Jay-Z trying to address the Freemason & Illuminati question: 




But, then you see a video like this and it will leave you wondering is Jay-Z really telling the truth? 



And, you say to yourself how could he say he's not a Mason and he's not apart of the Illuminati, but then he shows all of these Masonic & Illuminati signs & symbols in his videos. This one is probably the most overt one to date. In here you can also see four bullets being shot across a wooden crucifix of Jesus Christ. Now what I have said and will say is if none of this Freemason or Illuminati stuff is true, at the very least Jay-Z is not a positive role model especially for our Christian youth (which by the way purchases his albums too!) And, he definitely is not worthy of defense, because whenever you attack Jesus Christ in your songs then you've got a problem with me and all Christian who believe in JESUS CHRIST for that matter. But, again you hear and you see all of these conflicting images and quotes coming from the same person. And you're wondering what side of the fence is he really on? And then he says,  

"For the record, I of course believe in God, but I believe in one God. If people must know my religious beliefs, I believe in one God. I don’t believe in religion. I don’t believe in Christians or Muslims. I think all that separates people. I think it’s one God. I think it’s all the same God, and I don’t believe in Hell. But as far as God, of course I believe in God. Am I a part of some sect or cult? That sounds stupid to me."

Well Jay if you believe in one God, who is this God? And, if you don't believe in religion or Hell, then you don't believe in the God of the Bible. Because Isaiah 54:14 it says, "hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth shall descend into it." Therefore the existence of Hell is a reality that the Bible speaks about and if you don't believe in Hell then you must not believe in the Bible either. So, at the very least Jay-Z is not a religious person or a believer of God or the Bible, which should raise numerous red flags especially to those even in the religious community who not only listen to Jay-Z but defend they're doing so by asserting his musical genuis. If he is diametrically opposed to everything we as Christians stand for then why are there still some Christians who listen to and even defend his anti-religous views? What continues to boggle my mind is that when you see the images, and you listen to the song and he and other rappers like him are not discretely relaying their views. But, they are blatantly, arrogantly and overtly spewing their ant-religious, and ant-God venom and yet we somehow still try to rationalize away the reality of their folly. Incredible!

The latest example Jay-Z and his "Mixed Message Campaign"  is the new song he and Rick Ross just came out with called "Freemason." In it Rick openly declares he's affiliation with the Freemasons. Here is an excerpt of Rick Ross' verse

"I go in the grave before I be a b**** n***
Better behave you dealin with some rich n****
we the lost the symbols
speak in cryptic codes
ancient wisdom
valuable like gifts of Gold
I embark on life
my path is math
I understand the codes these hackers can't crack
I understand these folks expect me to fold 
I won't fail but a lot of men will 
I'm iconic in the field
like Solomon Seal
Uh, its just an intro
allow my flow time to sink into the temple
Free Mason
Free Lancer
Free Agents, we faster
Big contracts, big contractors
built pyramids, period
We Masters..."

This excerpt from Rick Ross' verse contains some many open references to this secret society. And, he is not talking about it as if he's detached from it, but he uses pronouns like "I" and "we" which confirms his affiliation.  What is also interesting is that his lyrics are itself cryptic messages that he is sending out as another sign of his connection with freemasons. He uses words like temple, (Masonic Temple), "my path is math" "built pyramids"which speaks to the Egyptian origins of this secret society. "We Masters" which is a clear reference to the third degree of Freemasonry; "Master Mason." So, cleary Rick Ross is making an open declaration of where his affiliation lies, but Jay-Z does something which supports the earlier notion that he could be using this speculation to his advantage. Instead of bolding declaring his affiliaition and connection to "Freemasonry" which many believe he would do in this song; given the title, instead he attacks his critics and speculators, and continues fueling the speculation by never once saying whether he is or isn't a Mason.
Here are some of his lyrics;

N*** could do nothing with me
they put the devil on me
I would have preffered if n**** squeeze the metal on me
Rumours of Lucifer
I don't know who to trust
whole world want my demise turn my music up
here me clearly, if y'all n*** fear me
just say y'all fear me
### all of this fairy tales
go to h***
This is God engineering
This is Hail Mary pass,
y'all interfering 
he without sin shall cast the first one
so y'all look in the mirror
double check your appearance
b*** I said I was AMAZING
Not that i'm a MASON..."

So here it appears that if Jay-Z is trying to play the victim by attacking those who have been seemingly attacking him; myself included. Using references like "they put the devil on me" and "rumours of Lucifer" and "I don't know who to trust." All of this makes it seem like the criticism of him and his music is entirely unwarranted and vindicative. Then he calls all of this a "fary tale" which is defintely a reference to the speculation regarding his Masonic affliations. And, then goes on to quoting scriptures from the Bible, which he claims he's never read. "He withouth sin shall cast the first one," obviously referring to his critics having skeletons in their closet as well. But then he does something, which he did in the first video from his latest album, "The BluePrint 3." In his first single of his latest album; "Run This Town," Jay-Z said, "I'm in Maison," and he mispronounced this french word to say "MASON." Whether unintentionally or deliberately he was inserted a indirect message that he was secretly affiliated with the Freemasons. This became even more clear when you look at the lyrics of the song "Run This Town" and you see that word he misprounced is spelled M-A-I-S-O-N, which is the last name of the famous French Designer Martin Maison.

Some of his clothes are pictured here:

                                   Rhianna - Martin Maison Outfit

Do you think it was by accident or a "Fruedian Slip" that Jay-Z mispronounced this well known French fashioned designer's name. One that just so happened to have outfitted one of his protege's Rhianna for this very same video. Not so! He does this again in this song "Freemason" when he says, "...I said I was AMAZING. Not that i'm a MASON."  So, here he's saying his critics and speculators have gotten it wrong. He talks so proper and is so refined that we mistook AMAZING for him saying he was A MASON. Give me a break!

But, what people fail to understand is that the speculation is very much apart of the Freemason agenda. Deception is a very important tool that is used to keep people constantly doubting the truth. Because if any of the truth every becomes clear and apparent to you than you are no longer in bondage and you're no longer a slave. So you must understand it is the goal of the Jay-Z's of the industry to keep you doubting, and to keep you guessing about who they really are. Much in the same way the devil has done and is doing in our world today. He is re-marketing himself to the world as a "sauve, charismatic, enlightened friend and not foe of mankind." And, where he's starting is to attack the bible where the truth of his identity is housed. He's actually has cults and groups who subscribed to the notion that Lucifer is actually the good guy and God is the bad guy. Men like Aliester Crowely and Max Moore have sought to redefine the overall image of Lucifer in the eyes of mankind. Calling him an Angel of Light and not darkeness, referring to the meaning of his name "Son of the Morning. And, how could someone who's name means light be inherently evil. In fact, Max Moore; leader of the Transhumanist Movement" said,

"The Devil-Lucifer-is a force for good (where I define good is simply that which I value, not wanting to imply any universal validity or necessity to the orientation). Lucifer means "light bringer" and this should begin to clue us in on his symbolic importance. The story is that God threw Lucifer out of heaven because Lucifer had started to question God was spreading dissention amongst the angels. We must remember that this story is told from the point of view of the Godists...and not from the Luciferians ( I will use the term to distinguish us from the Satanists with whom I have some fundamental differences.) The truth may just as easily be that Lucifer resigned from heaven."

Clearly, we can see how this re-marketing campaign is endeavoring to tear down the Biblical perspective of the devil and make him into an entirely different being altogether. And, we can see how this campaign corresponds direclty with the deceptive practices of secrety society's like the "Freemasons." Another thing that you shouldn't expect to happen is to see any of the truth about these secret societies come across the mainstream airwaves of the mass media. This is another part of the Freemason agenda that helps to breed the doubt and continued speculation of the identity of its members. Great pains have been taken to keep the truth from being exposed this way, because the mainstream mass meda has such a large following and why use this vehicle to speak the truth, when it can be used to propagate lies. So, you will typically see these views expressed on individual blogs (Vigilant Citizen www.vigilanticitizen.com), or periodically on Yotube (The Forerunner Chronicles, www.Youtube.com/forerunner777), where its crediblity will constantly be challenged because its viewership can be limited and monitored.

SIGNS & CLUES

One thing that is becoming increasingly clear as we get closer and closer to Jesus Christ return, the enemy is becoming more bolder and brazen in the these things that he is doing. What was once done in secret is now being done in the light of the day and right in the face of the public. Why, because the influences are so strong now that nothing can be done to stop its progress. But, Jesus warns us a Christians in the Word of God to see the signs of the times. He cautions us on our ability to understand the weather and whether it will be clear or whether it will be cloudy, but asks us can you discern the signs of the times?

Matthew 16:3, Jesus says, "And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?"

In the last days perilous times will come. This is what Jesus clearly tell us to look out for. And, the signs of the times are here for us to see but either we have gotten to comfortable living here that we don't want to leave or we are walking around with blinders on, but the signs are more clear today than the have ever been that we are living in the last days.

What is true and what more attention should be given to is the signs that artists like Jay-Z are including in their videos, pictures, clothing and other areas of the media that speak to their secret affilations.

                                   Jay-Z's Clothing line RocA-Wear

                                           "The Pyramid" Sign

                "Aleister Crowley" with a Pyramid on his hat


                                                        "Baphomet"

                          Beyonce and her alter ego "Sasha Fierce"


Look at all of these familar signs and symbols we've seen time and time again. We wear Roc-A-Wear; many of us have thrown up the "Diamond" sign before, and we've all claimed to have an alter ego of our own as well. Yes it is easy to rationalize away the truth, because we inherently defend what we like and critize what we don't. But, these signs are too clear to deny. And yet this is still hard for some people to believe. Why is is this still hard for people to believe. It's hard for us to believe, because we're secretly in love with these artists ourselves. And, we defend their behavior by calling them musical genuises, which is our way of letting ourselves off the hook because we still choose to listen to them even though apart of us believes what is being said about them is really true.  But, remember Lucifer was consider a "Musical Genuis" as well. In fact, he was the "Chief Musician" in heaven.  So, who are we really covering for, THEM or OURSELVES? At the end of the day, the bible says that ever man is going to have to stand before God and give an account for the deeds that he's done in this body. So, whether you are coveriing for Jay-Z by defending his bad choices or yourself for still choosing to listening to him despite all signs pointing to his occult affliations, every man is going to have to answer to God for himself. Quite frankly, Jay-Z hasn't done enough for me to sacrifice my life for his. He'll never be able to sell enough records to warrant my worship or praise. He and artists like him will never be famous enough for me to loose myself in defending them.  So, the question for so many people becomes who are you going to serve, God or Jay-Hova? And, the answer for me is very clear and a very easy one to make, JESUS! He's is definitley the most influential person in my life.

So, is Jay-Z a Freemason, YES HE IS! HOW DO I KNOW? HE TOLD ME SO! And, he's telling you to if you just take the time to WATCH & LISTEN.
