Huguenots, John Calvin and Freemasonry
Who were the Huguenots and what did they believe?
Fleeing religious persecution of Protestants in France after the 1685 revocation of the Edict of Nantes (which had guaranteed their rights), 200 000 French Huguenots emigrated to countries such as Switzerland. Germany, England, America, and South Africa.
Amongst the first Huguenots to come were Francois Villion (Viljoen) and the du Toit brothers, FranÃ§ois and Guillaume. Actually, the very first was Maria de la Quellerie, Jan van Riebeeck’s wife. Between 1688 and 1689 a large-scale emigration programme of Huguenots who had fled to the Netherlands was organised to the Cape of Good Hope – then a colony of the Dutch East India Company, which needed more settlers to provide food for the passing fleets. It began on December 31, 1687, and in total some 180 Huguenots from France, and 18 Walloons from the present-day Belgium, eventually settled at the Cape of Good Hope, comprising about one sixth of the free burgher population. Individuals continued to arrive sporadically until the termination of the state subsidised emigration in 1707. By 1720 about 270 French refugees had settled in the Cape. 
The Huguenots are characterised by their intrinsic pride, diligence and honesty. Although they strove to maintain their own identify at first, they soon intermarried with the other colonists to fully become just South Africans. Within two generations even their home language, French, largely disappeared.
As a group the Huguenots arrived at a very early stage of the settlement at the Cape when the white population was still relatively small in numbers . What they experienced as children of the Reformation in their own country, they brought as spiritual assets to their new country of choice.
Perhaps their most important influence on South Africa, is the fact that they – like their Dutch compatriots – were supporters of Calvinism. In his work Het leven van Johannes Calvijn (“The life of John Calvin”) D’Arbez concludes:
“Nowhere on earth is the legacy of Calvin stronger than in South Africa, where the spirit of Calvin has not waned due to the influence of the twentieth century, as has been the case, and still is the case, in the countries of Europe”. [1a]

So as we can see the Huguenots were proud Calvinists. Calvinism is a false gospel that God predestined mankind before the foundation of the world to either be Elect and go to heaven or a Reprobate and burn in hell. Please read all articles on John Calvin here:

In the following articles it has been shown that the Dutch Reformed Church in South Africa, since the beginning of it’s history has been Calvinistic and Masonic. Piet Retief was a Freemason and the Pretoria Voortrekker monument is actually an altar for Sun Worship. Please read all articles on this shocking information here:

Now because we know that Calvinism and Freemasonry go hand in hand, if we look right back to the beginning of the time when the Huguenot’s settled in South Africa it is safe to say that many Huguenots were Freemasons. And it shows in all their emblems and monuments.
I have a pamphlet at home that tells the history of the Huguenots that came to South Africa. It’s a very old pamphlet and written in Afrikaans. While browsing through this pamphlet, as I am of Huguenot decent looking for info on my family name, I came across the Huguenot’s Crest. I took a photo of it from the pamphlet. I went onto the internet and spent hours researching what this entire crest stands. We are told it is Christian. However, the Huguenot crest and the Huguenot monument in Franschoek stands for something other than what we are told to believe.
THE HUGUENOT CROSS
A Huguenot would wear this Huguenots Cross as a confirmation of his faith – that being Calvinism.
The cross supposedly symbolises the following things:
But what does this Hugenot’s cross really stand for?
You will notice my numbering is a bit odd as I look at each one of the above individually. I do not look at point 1) I however start with number 3)
3) The Maltese cross:
Designed in the mid 16th century. This cross has arms which narrow towards the center, and are indented at the ends. This makes an eight-pointed cross with no curved lines. The eight outer points of this cross are symbolic of regeneration, and are sometimes said to represent the eight beatitudes. The cross was the emblem of the Knights of St. John, who were driven from Rhodes to the island of Malta by the Turks. [Emphasis added]  The Knights of Malta is a Freemason order. The Maltese Cross is generally associated with fire.
4) The Fleur-de-Lis :
They say it signifies the twelve apostles on the Huguenot cross. But this is not true. The Fleur-de-Lis is actually the Tree of Life of the Kabbalah and is represented in Freemasonry. The fleur-de-lis in French means “lily flower”. However, I must point out that this symbol you see on flags, royal crowns and every where else actually represents the “Trinity of the Brotherhood” or “Blood line of the the Blessed Trinity”.
This occultic emblem represents a blood line of so called divine majesty and it symbolises a particular royal Brotherhood that had existed long before the foundations of Rome. The Nile is where this same brotherhood originated. The fleur-de-lis is modeled after the lotus flower in Egypt. They choose an ancient Egyptian symbol for “plant” also meaning “Tree of Life”. It is now that the fleur-de-lis symbol has replaced the ancient Egyptian plant that were 3 sacred lotus lilies. The Tree of Life now symbolises the royalty of this occult Brotherhood that gives honour to the 3 three sacred lilies of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. However Jesus, Mary and Joseph in Egyptian occultism is none other than Isis, Horus and Osiris/Set – this is the occult Trinity of the Brotherhood.
5) The inverted dove:
They say this dove is supposed to represent the Holy Spirit, but this is actually the Freemason inverted dove which symbolizes destruction.
2) The open heart space between the Maltese cross and the Fleur-de-Lis:
This is indeed suggesting the seal of John Calvin. See pictures below:
If you look at the above Geneva coin by John Calvin it is the Sun (Eye of Horus/Ra) that radiates rays down to his heart .
Was John Calvin possibly a Freemason?
Lets look at this logo on the left that represents the University of Geneva that was established by John Calvin himself in 1559.
a) What is the meaning of the Eagle?
This is the Freemason Phoenix Bird of Ancient Egyptian Mythology. Most people think they are eagles, but they are not. Look at the below Masonic double headed Phoenix logo’s. The image of one half of the phoenix is represented in John Calvin’s University emblem.
b) What is the meaning of the key?
Many say it is the “Keys of the Kingdom” which is to represent the authority of the Church to forgive sins in Jesus’ name. Two keys represent dual authority to open Heaven to repentant sinners and to lock Heaven to the unrepentant. This is also a common emblem of St. Peter.”  [Emphasis added]. However these are also the Keys to Freemasonry. See images below. If you look at the University of Geneva image above you will see that only one of the Keys of Freemasonry is being represented in the emblem. I doubt John Calvin was using the key on the emblem to represent the Roman Catholics ability to forgive people of their sins. The other option is more viable that they are the Keys to Freemasonry considering he has also used the Freemason double headed phoenix.
3) At the top of the Universities seal you have the SUN.
This represents not only Sun worship but the sun is representative of the All Seeing Eye or Eye of Horus/Ra.
4) And then you have the letters IHS in the Sun.
We are told that this monogram IHS stands “Iesus Hominum Salvator – Jesus the Savior of men” – The S is sometimes written with a Greek letter – Î™Î—Î£ as it is done in the University of Geneva’s emblem. The Jesuits (Freemasons), or members of the Society of Jesus, use IHS in their official seal, adding three nails (but not necessarily) below the H surrounding the whole monogram with a SUN that radiates outward depicting Sun worship and the Eye of Horus.
4.1) But what was IHS’s original meaning?
Now you can see why IHS is always set in the middle of the Sun.
SO WAS JOHN CALVIN REALLY A FREEMASON?
Most definitely, he was a very intelligent man and I seriously doubt he would have established a University in Geneva and had no input as to what the emblem should be. In fact John Calvin ran the city of Geneva like a tyrant, making sure every single element of Genevian society met his grade of religious piety and that every person living in Geneva stuck to his laws and regulations otherwise one faced being sent to jail or being set on fire at the stake.
Did John Calvin use Masonic hand signs?
1) Below are numerical hand signs from a renaissance text on mathematics. Such usage often combines the teachings of numerology with the secret messages of hand communications in Freemasonry.
2) Below is the KGC Masonic Left Hand Path Gesture above the Heart forming the Sign of Fidelity or “the claw” also known as the “devil’s claw.” or “‘lions paw”. The Knights of the Golden Circle (KGC) was a Masonic Blood Oath society.
3) Below is the Freemason heart sign or sign of fidelity.
4) Below is the Masonic meaning to pointing of the fingers: Pointing the finger away from the body is known in occult circles as “the sign of faith”, while pointing upward is the “sign of preservation”.
I think that settles it.
Let’s go back to the Hugenot’s cross. Here is another version:
The order decoration of the Order of the Holy Spirit (Chevaliers du Saint-Esprit) which Henry III established in 1578.
“Other predecessors of the Huguenot Cross include the so-called Languedoc Cross, and the order decoration of the Order of the Holy Spirit which Henry III established on December 31st, 1578 (above, right). It was the most exclusive order in France until 1789. Because the members, royalty included, were awarded with the Cross of the Holy Spirit, which hung from a blue ribbon, they were called “Cordon Bleus”. The sumptuous banquets accompanying their award ceremonies became legendary, and the “Cordon Bleu” award for excellence in cuisine took it name from the blue ribbon.” [2a]
Let’s now look at the Huguenot Monument in Franschhoek:
If you look at my original picture of the Huguenots crest and the Huguenot Monument in Franschhoek you will notice there are 3 arches that surround the Huguenots crest and 3 arches that surround the woman standing on the earth.
According to the Huguenot Society of South Africa the monument stands for the following things:
The Huguenot Memorial Monument in Franschhoek was inaugurated on April 17th, 1948. With its simplicity and elegance of line the monument displays a historic French character.The female figure, with the Bible in her right hand and broken chain in her left hand, personifies the spirit of religious freedom. The fleur-de-lis (French lily) on her robe represents a noble spirit and character. She discards the cloak of suppression to triumph above the earth globe in its own spiritual space. Her gaze is fixed on a majestic vision of coming things. On the portrayed Southernmost point of Africa to where the frail ships transported the Huguenots, the symbols of their religion (the Bible), art and culture (the harp), the agriculture and viticulture (the sheaf of corn and grape vine) and industry (spinning wheel) are portrayed.
The three lofty arches is a symbol of the Holy Trinity. Above it the Sun of Righteousness shines, and above that the Cross as symbol of Christian faith is mounted. The water pond, reflecting the colonnade behind it, expresses the undisturbed tranquility of mind and spiritual peace the Huguenots experienced after much conflict and strife. [2c] [Emphasis added]
What are these 3 arches?
We are told that they symbolise the Holy Trinity; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. But this is not true. These 3 arches are actually called a Triptych. The occult meaning behind the Triptych is as follows:
“The abundant occurrence of the Triptych across the ancient world is not a random coincidence. The Triptych represents more than merely an architectural element; the Triptych is the chief symbol of an advanced Universal Religion that was once shared globally in Antiquity, mainly by the pyramid cultures. The discovery of the Triptych provides, for the first time, conclusive evidence that ancient cultures worldwide shared the same spiritual beliefs. It also indicates that these cultures did not evolve independently, but were probably descended from the same more remote parent source.
The Universal Religion symbolized by the Triptych was banned in the West 2,000 years ago by the Catholic Church, but nonetheless it has continued into modern times, surviving in the beliefs of Secret Societies and their art and architecture. Look, for example, at the headquarters of the Freemasons, the Skull & Bones, the Shriners and the Knights of Pythias. Each building’s facade depicts an unmistakable Triptych pattern:
The problem is, we have amnesia of our immortal godhood Self (capital S) because it is covered up by our mortal animal bodily self (lowercase s) while we live our lives on earth…
You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.” –C.S. Lewis
By following a careful set of instructions-encoded in the Triptych-we can transcend our body and see our real god Self within. This has long been the goal of alchemists, occultists, spiritualists and philosophers, and it is achieved by an age-old spiritual practice known as “Awakening Our Third Eye,” with the Third Eye being a vestigial organ of spiritual illumination that lies hidden in the human forehead. Whereas the two eyes see outward at material things, the single Third Eye sees inward at the inner soul.
As it turns out, this too has been encoded into buildings that contain a Triptych. As we shall see in a moment, the Third Eye is symbolized by the center door of the Triptych:
The Third Eye is well-known in esoteric circles and has been variously described throughout history as the “Divine Eye,” “All Seeing Eye,” “Mind’s Eye,” “Eye of the Soul,” and “Inner Eye.” While the name for it differs, what remains constant throughout the esoteric doctrines is that the Third Eye is not a metaphor, symbol, or analogy. It is affirmed to be a real, physical part of the body able to strengthen or atrophy as much as any other muscle; by exercising it, one slowly but steadily increases their awareness of their natural spiritual powers.
Here’s how the Triptych works: Our bodies are perfectly symmetrical from side-to-side, made of two equal and opposing halves-a right-side half and a left-side half. We all have two hands, two arms, two legs, two hands, two feet, two shoulders, two eyes, two ears, and so on. According to the Universal Religion of the ancients, our right-side half is solar (and male) and our left-side half is lunar (and female).
This duality of opposites present in the human body is actually a microcosm of the duality of opposites present in the entire universe. The sun and moon, for example, are perfect opposites.
- The SUN stands for DAY–the MOON stands for NIGHT.
- In the DAY it’s HOT and LIGHT–at NIGHT it’s COLD and DARK.
- In the DAY things are DRY–at NIGHT things are MOIST.
- The HOT DAY means LIFE or GOOD. The COLD NIGHT means DEATH or EVIL.
The sun and the moon are simply one of the most prominent examples, and this “pairs of opposites” wisdom forms the “lost key” to all the Mystery school teachings in history. Because man lives inside the universe and not apart from it, we too are composed of these same pairs of opposites–“as above, so below,” says the famous Emerald Tablet. The key is not just to understand this sun/moon duality of the human body. The key is to “unify” or “balance” the twin opposing sides and thus “transcend” the bodily duality. It’s precisely the Third Eye’s awakening.
So the secret of the Triptych and the ancient Universal Religion which it symbolizes is that by balancing our bodily duality we can awaken our Third Eye and see the “god” at the center of ourselves, which is who we really are. This wisdom has been hidden from the masses, yet given to initiates of Secret Societies like the Freemasons, whose esoteric drawings depict a single centered Eye symbol that is always flanked by the sun and the moon:
This formula for awakening the Third Eye is hidden in plain sight in the Triptych entrances of countless buildings constructed throughout the West during the past 2,000 years.”

So as we can see the occult meaning of the 3 arches on the Huguenot crest and the Huguenot Monument in Franschhoek is nothing but an esoteric message that if understood properly will lead one to an awakening of the third eye and the discovery of ones divine self.
The sun at the top of the arch represents the awakening of the Third Eye, All seeing Eye, the Eye of Horus or Ra the Sun God.
Read this bit of occult teaching to understand what the Eye of Ra (Horus) is really all about:
Who is the woman standing on the earth?
They say, “The female figure, with the Bible in her right hand and broken chain in her left hand, personifies the spirit of religious freedom. The fleur-de-lis (French lily) on her robe represents a noble spirit and character. She discards the cloak of suppression to triumph above the earth globe in its own spiritual space. Her gaze is fixed on a majestic vision of coming things” [2c]
But this could be further from the truth. This lady is none other than the pagan Mary (Queen of Heaven) or Isis as she stands on the earth. We know this because on the monument, her robe is adorned with the fleur-de-lis. We know from previous investigation that the fleur-de-lis is the Tree of Life that now symbolises the royalty of the occult Trinity that gives honour to the 3 three sacred lilies of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.
It has been proven beyond reasonable doubt that John Calvin was a Freemason who concocted the horrific false doctrine of Calvinism. Calvinism’s god is none other than Lucifer – who thinks he has the ability to send people to hell or Elect others with a one way trip into paradise. One can only expect that a person who believes in the evil false teaching of Calvinism will easily follow Freemasonry. Of the Huguenots who came to South Africa, many were Freemasons and they were all Calvinists. South Africa’s history has been run from beginning to end by Masonic Calvinists. The past Apartheid Government were none other than Freemason Calvinists who believed they were Elect and the black population was reprobate – hence the past government did what they did and established segregation among the whites and the blacks.
“We [the Illuminati] are the Fathers of all Revolutions – even of those, which sometimes happen to turn against us. We are the supreme Masters of Peace and War. We can boast of being the Creators on the REFORMATION! Calvin was one of our Children; he was of Jewish descent, and was entrusted by Jewish authority and encouraged with Jewish finance to draft his scheme in the Reformation” (The Roman Catholic Gazette, February 1936).
