Adam Weishaupt was the founder of the Order of the Illuminati.
Weishaupt was born Febuary 6, 1748. He was originally a devout, God-fearing Christain. However, he soon began to practice the occult. He began to believe that Yahweh, the God of the Bible was evil and Satan was good. Weishaupt believed Satan had given us enlightenment while God had tried to keep us imprisoned. He also believed that the REAL reason Satan rebelled against God was because he was trying to PROTECT humanity from God. He also believed that Jesus and Christianity were the enemies of enlightenment.
Weishaupt became a Satanist, Occultist, 33rd Degree Freemason, and Professor of Canon Law at a university in Bavaria. Weishaupt, through communications with Satan came to believe that he was meant to help the Antichrist come to power. On May 1st, 1776, Weishaupt founded the Order of the Illuminati and resurrected the form of Satanism practiced by the Knights Templars. Weishaupt (codenamed Brother Spartacus) planned to infiltrate governments, religions, and secret societies in order to create a New World Order. Weishaupt knew this task would never be accomplished in his life time.
In 1784-85, the Illuminati was discovered, exposed and banned. Weishaupt fled to Northern Germany. However by this time, the Illuminati plan had already been set in motion. Weishaupt spent the rest of his life in exile but continued to lead the Illuminati, practice the Occult, and speak with Satan.
Weishaupt died on November 18th, 1830. But his plan is still in motion and is on the verge of success. Only through the saving grace of Jesus Christ will we be able to succeed. Satan will fail. God will reign supreme forever and ever.
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
