This guy Juhani Julin claims he is former 33 degree Freemason.
He left Freemasonry because when he reached 33 degree he was told that Lucifer is the real god of Freemasonry. He also claims that Freemasons does not know in what kind of organization they are until they reach 33 degree.
Also, this guy was find dead two weeks after filming this interview.
Here is the link of part one and there is part 2 also:

I am not a member of the Finnish Scottish Rite, but I sincerely doubt that this man is legit as a 33rd Scottish Rite Mason. And if he is then he is either trying to gain notoriety/fame for himself by spreading these lies, or he is sorely misinformed and has misunderstood the same things that half of the so called Christian organizations misunderstand when attacking Freemasonry with the Lucifer claim.

It stems from a book called Morals & Dogma by Albert Pike. In it he has a reference to Lucifer whereby he questions the fact that Lucifer and the “Satan” of the Bible are the same being. He never says anything about worshiping this being or Lucifer. People tend to take a sentence or two from these writings and reference them completely out of context. These “Christians” probably do the same thing with their Bible (I actually know some who do) instead of reading the entire scripture around the verse to get the true meaning of the words.

I know this man’s words are false, so I have no need to watch his video.

This kind of crap is all over YouTube. It is humorous at best and annoying at worst.

I know several 33rds and each is a man I respect and would emulate.

Think this through. The first qualification to join the Fraternity is a belief in God. A man who spends a large part of his life in service to humanity and the Craft is chosen to receive the honor of the 33rd degree. This man demonstrates his faith and has put it into action for many years. Now, because of this degree, he is suddenly told he is really a satanist. The 33rds I know would laugh in the face of anyone who tried that.

Sorry, it’s just crap.

So would the Canons of the Church of England who have attained the 33; one of the most well known being the late Canon Richard Tydeman.

There is just no truth to it.  Remember, anyone can make a video.  ANYONE.
Go to you tube and start watching videos trying to prove the earth is flat, as an example.  There are plenty, but it doesn’t make them true.

People obsess with the 33rd degree because it sounds good.  The 33rd is NOT the top of Masonry and there is no Gospel According to St. Youtube.
