The Promise Keepers’ ‘Stand in the Gap’ Emblem Displays the Masonic/Phallic Tower
Promise Keepers, despite the phallic initiations their mentor Robert Hicks calls for in his book, ‘The Masculine Journey,’ which they use to contaminate believers with masonic spirits, lingo, dogma, and practices, say their masonic-phallic symbol of the high tower/steeple means they ‘stand between the sinner and God to prevent God’s anger and punishment.’
However, men who know the Bible as well as they do know this is impossible. Every person will stand for himself before God as the Holy Spirit “convicts everyone on earth of sin, righteousness [in Christ] and judgment,” (Jn. 16:8-12.)
God is the Righteous Judge that will punish all personal, unrepentant sin. Even Abraham, interceding for the Sodomites, could not turn away their punishment because salvation and repentance is a personal commitment between believers and God, (Jn. 1:11-13; 3:3-5.) When Israel worshiped the golden calf, Moses pleaded with God, “If you will not forgive Israel’s sin, then blot out my name from Your book which You have written!” But God answered, “Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book,” (Ex. 32:31-35.)
The Lord Jesus is the Only Mediator between man and God, (1 Tim. 2:5.) Do not be fooled in any way. The steeple or tower is an inherent masonic symbol. In political, religious, and other symbolism, the obelisk or steeple always signifies the erect male organ, which relates directly to sun worship as the so-called “giver of life.”
Seekgod.com wrote, “In 1987, one million men gathered on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. (at the obelisk, which was built and dedicated by masons) for ‘stand in the gap,’ marking the largest gathering of Christian men in history… That Monument is the most obvious masonic symbol...” ‘Initiations into manhood’ is pure masonic and occult initiation. So is their “Stand in the Gap” emblem, which is a prominent symbol of all masonic orders. Hence, they proudly display this masonic church steeple worship to the sun god on T-shirts, books, and Kenneth Copeland and other literature.

This Promise Keepers display at the base of that masonic tower in 1987 was no coincidence. Robert Hicks’ book, ‘The Masculine Journey,’ is shamelessly approved by the Promise Keepers Network. In this book he has the audacity to openly call the “second stage” of this so-called ‘journey into manhood’ “the phallus stage.” Obsessed with perverted sex and the male reproductive organ, (as all masonic orders are, because they worship the goat-god of lust and power named Baphomet, and not Jesus,) Hicks wrote, “The phallus has always been the symbol of religious devotion and dedication.” Therefore, it was ‘logic’ for masonic orders to make it a Christian symbol as well! Truth is, the erect phallus has indeed ‘always’ been worshiped in all forms of sun worship as ‘Generative power;’ (represented by the ‘G’ of the compass and square in masonry,) which symbolizes the sun god in perpetual copulation with the ‘mother earth’ goddess.
Thus, in the context of Hicks’ vulgar masonic teachings and the Promise Keepers’ filthy phallic symbols, the entire ‘stand in the gap’ dogma is an occult abuse of God’s Word. God called all His true children, who form His holy spiritual priesthood after the Order of Melchizedek, (His spiritual kings and priests, or all true believers,) to intercede “boldly before His throne” in prayer for the lost world and the body of Christ, and to teach the Truth of His Word to everyone as far as possible, (Rom. 1:29-32; 1 Pt. 2:9-10; Heb. 4:14-16.)
The Masonic Vineyard, Promise Keepers Network
WatchUntoPrayer.com continued, “Bill McCartney founded the Promise Keepers Movement by inspiration of his Vineyard pastor, James Ryle. Randy Phillips, president of the Promise Keepers, is also a member of James Ryle’s Vineyard Fellowship. As young man, Latter Rain/Manifest sons of God forefather, Paul Cain, first envisioned Joel’s Army in training and then graduating to fill the stadiums, fields, and sport arenas by the thousands… [These stadiums, etcetera, are replicas of pagan temples for human and animal sacrifice to homosexual and other gods. Knowing what masonic orders teach and stand for, this is certainly no coincidence!] Paul Cain wrote, ‘Our lord is calling out a great host of men ready and willing to become ‘christs’ in their homes: Promise Keepers. In grand, bold weeps, god is mustering an army.’”
Could the True God of the Bible be ‘mustering an army’ of men through the Promise Keepers? If this were true, then answer the following important questions. Why would God do such an antichrist, unscriptural thing and annul His completed work in the place of all humanity? (1 Pt. 2:9-10.) What happened to God’s Biblical Truth, which promises, “You, [since believers of Christ,] are all [allegorical] sons [or spiritual children] of God through faith in Christ Jesus…” (Gal. 3:26-29.) “All authority has been given to Me… Go into all the world, [preach My Gospel to all the nations, to] make disciples, [water] baptizing them in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I [Jesus] have commanded you… And I Am with you always, even to the end of the world,” (Mt. 28:18-20.)
The Promise Keepers Network consists of Christian masonic agents. Undeniably, Billy Graham belonged to masonic orders as his God-provoking masonic signs and doctrines of Universalism, (everyone will be saved by whatever god they choose to follow,) cannot be overlooked. By James Dobson’s endorsement of the Promise Keepers Movement, as well as his connections to the White House, he cannot not far behind! Joyce Meyer, Creflo Dollar, Benny Hinn, Paula White, Kenneth E Hagin, Ed Young Jr., Joseph Prince, Fredrick E. Price, Robert Tilton, Jesse Duplantis, TD Jakes, Mike Murdock, Paul Crouch, Rick Warren, Joel Osteen… Name them; they all belong to the Promise Keepers Network, which is under control of Roman Catholic Orders such as the Jesuits and the Knights of Malta. The Vineyard Promise Keepers, (the Manifest Sons of God/Joel’s Army, Elijah Prophets...) through the madness of their river of anointing and not through the Truth of the Scriptures, allegedly “all came into the full stature of Christ,” and thus “have become Jesus Himself.”
This signs-and-wonders movement, which Jesus warned so sternly against in Matthew 24:24, is a so-called ‘non-denominational’ organization, which, in reality, was formed to unify Christian churches under the worldwide interchurch, or ecumenical masonic banner. We must realize that true Scriptural rebirth through personal faith in Christ is a once-off spiritual birth, just as physical birth. In contrast, “gradual” or ‘sacramental’ church ‘salvation,’ initiation, dedication, and a journey of initiation into any religion, church, or society is occult ritualism and, therefore, dedication to Satan.
‘WatchUntoPrayer.com’ explained, “In typical Promise Keepers conferences, the meetings are characterized by group euphoria, religious commitments, and technical exhibitions… [They place mass hysteria and feeling above the truth of Scripture and sane reasoning, once the so-called ‘glory’ allegedly ‘comes down’ during those meetings.] The Latter Rain understanding of the word “glory” is the “visible manifestation [or continual outpouring] of the spirit…” [that’s when they begin to chaotically bark like dogs, etcetera.] Believers are led to expect manifested spirits during their meetings, [the so-called spiritual “return of christ”] and not the visible, bodily return of the Lord Jesus…]” However, Jesus will return bodily on physical clouds, just as He ascended into heaven. They try to nullify and ‘spiritualize’ the literal parts and the truth of Scripture, and that is why all their ‘signs’ and ‘wonders’ are false, (Mt. 24:24; Acts 1:11.)
Paul Cain described the alleged ‘Latter Rain’ successions as follows, “Let me tell you he’s coming to you, he’s coming to his church, he’s coming to abide in you, to take up his abode in you…” Cain must be speaking of a fake god that will possess his followers, because the ‘church’ is a false replica of Jesus’ blood-redeemed, spiritual, fully indwelt Holy-Spirit temple of true believers, (1 Cor. 6:15-20; Rom. 8:9.) Acts 7:44-50 proclaimed, “God does not dwell in temples made with hands…” So, Jesus will never come to live in a false ‘church.’
¨ Next, how is it possible that the real Christ will only now, during their so-called ‘glory’ meetings, ‘come to abide’ in believers, if that is what Cain meant? Where was the eternal, New Testament Covenant temple of the Holy Spirit since Jesus ascended into heaven? (1 Cor. 6:15-20.) Everyone that reads the Bible will know that the Holy Spirit fully indwells the body of Christ since that original Day of Pentecost, (the One and Only Pentecost,) and when Jesus returns He comes to take His sincerely believing body or bride to live eternally in heaven with Him; the unbelieving world and all disobedient Christians excluded! ( Acts 2; Mt. 29:19-20; 25:1-13; Rev. 19:6-9; 2 Ths. 1:7-12!!!)
¨ To believe the outright lies of these deceivers, we must tear up the entire truth of New Testament Scripture, even what Jesus did during His life and in our place on Golgotha, and everything concerning the one and only true Pentecost, the constantly indwelling Holy Spirit, and Jesus’ return on That One Day when He will take His one and only bride, who is ready, to their marriage feast (singular) in heaven, (Acts 1 & 2; 1 Jn. 2:20, 27; Mt. 25:1-13!!!)
Promise Keepers spread a nasty deception. Neither their intentions nor their doctrines are as ‘noble’ as these masonic so-called ‘gentlemen’ pretend to be. Anyone acquainted with masonic “decency,” “chivalry,” doctrine, language, and initiation would know that, during their Christian crusades in ‘sacred’ amphitheaters, these clandestine satanists are initiating thousands of men through “rites of passage” and a “change of consciousness” into “The Masculine Journey,” as prescribed by Promise Keepers’ doctrine. During those ‘rites,’ men are supposed to progress, through various stages of masonic initiation, from one “order of manhood” to another.
Once again I must ask: Where are any of those dogmas found anywhere in the truth of Scripture? All this is unashamed masonic occultism and witchcraft, which has nothing to do with the Holy Jesus of the Bible; His Eternal, Never-changing Word, and His Everlasting New Testament Covenant. Jesus’ real, Spiritual Kingdom is “within” the Scripturally born again ‘hearts’ or human spirits of true believers, (1 Ths. 5:23; Luke 17:20-21 KJV; Jn. 1:2-13; 3-5.) Only they form the real, Almighty Holy Spirit temple of God. Only they are the blessed, holy, blood-redeemed Body and Bride of Christ, who will live for all eternity in heaven with Him! (Mt. 25:1-13.)
¨ These masonic orders, rites, and initiations were deliberately designed to violate God’s Word, which commands, “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes [himself or] his son/daughter pass through the fire,” [of occult/Christian and other initiation] or one who practices [Christian] witchcraft…” (Deut. 18:10.)
