The Illuminati There is one fact of which we may be assured: the Order of the Illuminati was founded on May 1st, 1776, by Dr. Adam Weishaupt, Professor of Cannon Law at the University of Ingolstadt, Bavaria, Germany. Weishaupt was born a Jew, converted to Roman Catholicism, and was a former Jesuit priest who said he broke with that Order to form his own organization. It is important that we clarify the REAL meaning of the name of Weishaupt’s Secret Society – The Illuminati. The name implies that those individuals who are members of the Illuminati are the only members of the human race who are truly enlightened and know how to govern. Weishaupt and his followers considered themselves to be the cream of the intelligentsia – the ONLY people with the mental capacity, the knowledge, the insight and understanding necessary to govern the world and bring it peace. Their AVOWED purpose and goal was the establishment of a “Novus Ordo Seclorum” – a New World Order, or One World Government. It is pictured on the back of the U.S. dollar bill. The name Illuminati is derived from the word Lucifer,
which means “Bearer of Light” or a (spirit) being of extraordinary brilliance (Isaiah 14:12). This is the “invisible” power giving rise to this END TIME social system (Revelation 13:2). The Illuminati can be traced to the Egyptian’s priesthood. Public attention in Germany was first drawn to the existence of the Illuminati and their diabolical PLAN for world conquest as a result of a bizarre ACCIDENT in 1785. History records that a courier for the Illuminati, named Lanze, was racing on horseback from Frankfurt, Germany, to Paris, France, carrying documents relating to Illuminati activities in general, and specific instructions for the PLANNED French Revolution in particular. The documents originated with Jewish members of the Illuminati in Germany and were addressed to the Grand Master of the Grand Orient Masons in Paris. As the courier galloped through Ratisbon (Regensberg), he was struck by lightning and killed. All the papers he was carrying fell into the hands of the local police who turned them over to the Bavarian Government. The authorities ordered the police to raid the headquarters of the Illuminati. This resulted in additional documents being captured; these documents revealed that the Conspirators had WORLDWIDE AIMS.
