What Really Happens in the Mormon Temple
***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, some people think God chose who he was going to be saved even before they were born. I tend to think He just knew who was going to follow him and who wasn't. What is your opinion?
ANSWER: It is the age old debate about "election." God in His omniscience knew before the foundations of the earth was formed who would accept Him and who would reject Him. Having said that, despite His knowledge, man has the free will to accept or reject Christ and God DOES NOT interfere with that free will choice, meaning each person is responsible for what they do with Jesus. Otherwise, there would be no need for preaching the Gospel, there would be no point in evangelizing, and all of the commandments regarding telling others (Romans 10) would be meaningless.

What really happens in the Mormon Temple! This is NOT something to take likely. My dear friend of many years and a man of God who has had numerous attempts on his life for telling the truth about this satanic cult is an ex-Mormon and the person who first exposed the Mormon cult in a major way thru his book and movie "The God Makers." This is an expose of what happens when a Mormon man becomes a "Temple Mormon." Mitt Romney IS a "Temple Mormon." He, nor Beck, or any other "Temple Mormon will tell you the truth of what happens. They will hide these facts calling them "sacred." Please read this, share it with your those you know, and ask yourself if you really want a President who believes this!!!
The Mormon Temple is the very center of that faith. While the Prophet is the link between man and God, the Temple is the link between man and personal godhood! Only in it can the Mormon gain the secret knowledge that will be the key to actually stepping into godhood.
Mormon Temples are among the most beautiful buildings in existence, with no dollar spared in creating each Temple as a showplace of beauty and elegance.
There are two types of ordinances performed in the Temples: ordinances for the living, and the identical rituals done by proxy for the dead, who then have the chance to become Temple Mormons while waiting in "Spirit Prison" for the Millennium. If they choose to accept the proxy ritual, they are then allowed to go to "Paradise", the home of all worthy Mormons who have died. The one "special" temple ritual for only the dead is water baptism by proxy. This is done because there is apparently no water in "Spirit Prison."
The Temple and its associated "unspoken blessings" are on the hearts of every member. Either they are striving to be worthy enough to go, or burdened by deep guilt of failing this worthiness, or bound by secret pride at being one of the worthy, select few.
Having been evaluated and deemed temple worthy, I went to the temple with my wife and children to be married there and have our children sealed to us for 'time and all eternity."
After entering the temple and getting through the preliminaries, we were separated and led down stairs on opposite sides of the entry to locker rooms. Once arriving in the dressing area, I was instructed to remove all my clothing and strip naked. I was then given a small shoulder width, poncho-like open-sided sheet, 'shield' to pull over my head as a covering.
I was somewhat numb and confused as I was led to the Washing and Anointing Room where Temple workers ceremonially washed and blessed each member of my body. I moved on to the next station, where another worker anointed the same parts of my body with oil, chanting the same sing-song blessings I had just received.
I was then dressed in the "garment of the Holy Priesthood" (a basic, one-piece set of underwear). The worker instructed me that I would be required to wear this "shield and protection from the power of the destroyer" 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, except to bathe or change the garment itself.
The "garment" contained special markings on each breast, the navel, and the right knee, and would act as a mystical talisman to shield me from the power of evil so long as I would wear the garment and keep the Temple oaths. What a pity that I had no understanding of the true armor of God found in Ephesians 6:10-18.
The worker then whispered my secret "new name", (Joseph), which only God and I would know, and by which God would call me forth from the grave.
I was then led back to my locker where I removed the 'shield' and dressed in the white temple clothing and went upstairs to continue the rituals. My 'bride was somewhere on the opposite side of the room among a group of veiled women.
The rest of the rituals involve learning a series of secret passwords, handclasps, Tokens, penalties that were fully Masonic in their origin. We were then led in swearing to a number of covenants that bind the initiate to absolute obedience to the LDS church president who is the prophet, seer and revelator and to the holy priesthoods and their powers.
It wasn't until after I became a born again Christian and renounced the blood oaths I swore in the temple that I could look back at this bizarre ritual and its Masonic roots as being extremely occult, irrevocably tied directly to Lucifer, who in Mormonism, is the brother of Jesus.
What struck me to the core was that the talismanic markings on my secret/sacred undergarments were the exact same markings on Lucifer's Apron, as he taught Adam and Eve in the "Lone and Dreary World" part of the ritual. He tells Adam that those markings are the emblems of his power and priesthoods. Yes, the very same markings that I now had next to my bare skin.
Later in the ritual, I stood at the veil I must pass through to get to the celestial room and be finally united with my wife. I was pressed against the veil, placing my arms through slits in the holy veil that were the exact markings on my garments and on Lucifer's Apron. Remember that they are the emblems of Lucifer's power and priesthoods.
In that position, I embraced a man on the other side of the veil portraying the Lord and was tested to be sure I could execute all the handclasps, recite all the secret words and agree again to the penalties. As I pressed my breast against his, my talisman markings were pressed against his, sealing in all those oaths.
As I stood, foot to foot, knee to knee breast to breast, hand to back and mouth to ear, I whispered: 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.
It was, again, after I had had renounced those things of darkness that I realized that I had called down and submitted myself and my posterity for the generations to the power and priesthoods of Lucifer, that devil whose emblems I now wore on my body and swore to do the same 24/7 for the rest of my life.
Later, in the marriage, or sealing ritual, my wife, children and I had the sealed upon us those same "powers and principalities" that Ephesians, Chapter 6 says we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Romans 8 says that these are such that would separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Twice during the ritual, Lucifer warns the Mormon so engaged that he is the power within the ritual. Once he brags: "Now is the great day of my power. I reign from the rivers to the ends of the earth. There is none who dares to molest, or make afraid."
Later on, he pronounces this curse upon all attendees: "I have a word to say concerning these people. If they do not walk up to every covenant they make at these altars in this temple this day, they will be in my power!" Of course, no one could keep every part of every covenant, and by his mouth to their ears, they are his.
What chance does the Mormon have against the spiritual powers of darkness after having submitted to such dark things? The Scriptures tell us that they are led to damnation by their leaders (Isaiah 9:16), and that they don't know enough to be ashamed (Isaiah 44:9).
Yes, the Mormon people are blinded by this dark thing. But Christ came to preach deliverance to the captives and the recovering of sight to the blind! (Luke 4:18.) Someone like you shared the light with me. It is given to be shared!
I have only scratched a tiny bit of an evil surface. On Monday, September 10th, I will be taking the listeners on my program, The Decker Report, through the Mormon Temple ritual, itself. What I have shared here is just a small portion of the occult things that transpire within those beautiful, deceptive walls. Please go to www.deckerreport.com and listen to my program, "The Temple of the God Makers" and be sure to download the support documentation. The program is also downloadable to any number of electronic devices. firstname.lastname@example.org
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
