“The Builder”, December 1916
The Builder was published from 1915 to 1930 by
the National Masonic Research Society.
Nearly a century later, it has yet to be surpassed in terms of quality of content.
Our lodge is in every respect a symbolic workshop, furnished with all the tools belonging to the different grades of workmen, and with a trestleboard upon which are set forth the day’s designs and the material upon which the labor of the brethren is to be expended.
This symbolic material consists of the two ashlars, emblematic of the crude material and the finished product, which are placed plainly enough on view in New York lodges, but absent or almost unknown except to students in many other states. The oblong stones and nondescript slabs sometimes seen are noteworthy evidence that the age-old significance of the “cubical stone,” which has played such a prominent role in the mythology and mysticism of the past, has almost run to oblivion in the modern craft. These stones should really be perfect cubes. The symbolism of the working tools is completely lost the moment such proportions are lost sight of or ignored. The ancient Hebrews had their own version of the great “number philosophy,” which lent sanctity and expressiveness to the number 12. First of all, it was the number of their Twelve Tribes, who were doubtless a symbolical enrollment of all the heads of families under the zodiacal sign of the month in which they were born. It is certainly significant that the patriarchal system was founded upon this number, and later on many other dispositions were made that showed a particular reverence for the Chaldean plan of the universe based upon 12 signs. As one cube possesses six sides each of which is a perfect square, a number of remarkable mathematical and geometrical symbolisms were established based upon the fact that all the numbers, from one to 12 added together produce 78. This number is also the sum of 3 times “26,” the numerical value of the “Great and Sacred Name of Jehovah” (JHVH).
As each cube possesses 12 edges, the combined number require a 24-inch rule to symbolize their total outline. The breaking into different mathematical combinations of this supreme number, each significant of some one of the great ruling phenomena of nature, was seen in the symbolism of the use of an operative Mason’s gavel in the dressing of building stones.
The grand old mystery name of our Creator, called the Tetragrammaton (Greek for “four-letter name”) had as its root the three letters J, H, and V, which as numbers were 10, 5, and 6, or 21, the sum of the added numbers 1 to 6 represented by a single cube.
This fact was made the basis of a curious legend, ought by the wise old rabbis into that marvelous compilation called the Talmud, from which more than a little of our Masonic material has been derived.
The story is of the Patriarch Enoch (Hanok, father Methuseleh), whose name means “the initiator,” 10, all accounts agree, lived 365 years, or a “year of years.” A remarkable book attributed to him is often alluded to by the Hebrew commentators and early Christian “Fathers”; but no trace of it was ever found until in the last century it turned up in Abyssinia. It has been translated out of that strange African dialect into many tongues. The so-called Book of Enoch contains a remarkable recital of astronomical science as known to the ancients, told entirely in allegorical form, while the history of the Children of Israel is prophesied ( ?) under the allegorical simile of the remarkable doings of a singularly intelligent flock of sheep which build a house for their shepherd, the whole reading very much like a children’s fairy tale.
The Talmudic legend of Enoch represents him as greatly disturbed at the news of the impending world Deluge,” for fear the Name of God should be lost. He accordingly caused it to be inscribed upon a triangular plate of gold, and affixed it to a cubical stone, for the safe keeping of which he caused a series of nine arched vaults to be constructed, one beneath another, at the foot of Mt. Moriah (the holy mountain of the Jews, as Mt. Meru was of the Hindus). The rains came and the flood descended, and so washed the mud and silt over the site that it became completely obliterated.
Centuries later, when King David was moved “to build an house unto the Lord,” and actually set his workmen to dig the foundations thereof, the latter discovered the vaults, and descending therein brought to light the long-buried stone.
Tradition also has it that the material of this stone was agate, which would at once connect it with the Hermetic philosophy; for agate, above all, was sacred to Hermes and Thoth or David. The latter, having been a warlike monarch, was not permitted to achieve that which he had begun and so bequeathed the cubical stone to his son Solomon, who made use of it as the cornerstone of the Temple.
The imagery of this is plain enough in the fact that, not in a written or engraved inscription, but in the mathematical proportions of the cube itself, was to be found that wonderful Name which is, as it were, the foundation of the universe, of which man is a fleshly epitome and the Temple on Mt. Moriah a symbolic one.
By knowing the use of the working tools of an E. A. the initiate might begin his labor of hewing and shaping the brute matter at his feet into stones fit for the builders’ use; but when he had accomplished his task he was apprised that the symmetry and order it represented in its finished shape was “God”: not a god whom he created, but a God whom his patient labor had revealed.
The cube itself was an age-old symbol of the spiritual Man, as set forth in the Mahabarata of ancient India:
A portion of Mine own Self, transformed in the world of life into an immortal Spirit, draweth round itself the senses of which the Mind, is the Sixth, veiled in Matter.
Therefore we find the cube present in all the ancient mythologies, which were but racial cloaks for one and the same wisdom religion, understood by the priests of all countries alike as a symbol of the sixth sign of the zodiac, the characters portraying the great Mother of Wisdom and her divine son Man.
It is the task of the apprentice to break through the shell of matter and liberate the Divine Word that dwells within by opening his own spiritual perceptions to the light of the Logos. As the priceless statues of Phidias and Praxiteles were once shapeless masses of unmeaning stone and the Parthenon a sea-worn crag, until gavel and gage, mallet and chisel, in the hand of inspiration had performed their tasks, so has always been the lesson of the cube in its unshapen and shapen forms to the apprentice Mason.
Something very important has been revealed here, which we will touch upon in more detail as we progress. We must comprehend that the ancient mystery religions, including all of the modern Christian, Judaism, and Islamic faiths, were derived from this Masonic “code” and that these mythologies as allegorical stories all originate from the same source. In other words, religion itself does not shape God, but instead shapes what men do with its teachings. They each control men depending upon that mans race, culture, and preconceived beliefs. And each religion is and was created based upon the integration of race and culture into “the same wisdom religion”.
This is extremely important, as we will see, in understanding the reasons for the next World War (3) and its purpose of pitting the people (races) of all nations against each other. For the true goal in the mysteries is to establish (phoenix rising) a one world religion out of the ashes of a religious war between these “racial cloaks” called religions. The Temple is being rebuilt upon the Mount, with the purpose of inciting world Islam against the now unholy alliance of Christians and the false Jews who claim the Kingdom of Jerusalem (Israel), which we call international Zionism.
As we look around the world and view the tainted media and its “news”, as well as the so-called “Christian” evangelism promoting Israel at all costs, we see the Islamic world spreading while the now Zionist governments of once racially exclusive nations like Sweden, Germany, France, and England become overrun with Muslim immigrants.
In these videos, we can see the plan shaping up and unfolding as the battlefield is being set for a holy religious war on an international scale, all centered around Jerusalem (Israel) and its holy Temple on the Mount recently reclaimed by the Masonic powers of the world after World War II.
“All the qualities of Catholicism…”
“No figures, no images… that’s the only line (difference).”
How else do you create a holy racial religious war than to purposefully intermingle such racial religious foes until one race and religion is forced to fight for its very culture, life, and land? And what happens when you discover that this has been the plan for a very long time – to allow the common-blood “goyim” races to simply and ignorantly wipe each other off the map in a trumped up holy war?
As required reading for full comprehension here, please view my History of World Governments and their incremental takeover by international Zionism, leading to the World Jewish Congress and the reclaiming of the Kingdom Of Israel for the Plantagenet bloodline kings – a war waged by Great Britain’s alliance with that Zionist congress.
It is of the utmost importance to comprehend that the white Ashkenazim “Jews” who now inhabit Palestine (Israel) in an illegal political “State” are not Semitic in any way – they are not the Biblical Jews. And yet they hide behind the historical notion of being the “lost tribes” of the “chosen people”, and now control the major governments of the world. But in truth, the leaders of nations and religions are all of the same blood, pretending to oppose one another while secretly and collectively striving for the same goal of rebuilding the Temple of Solomon and establishing a one world religion through the religious and racial war that action will create.
The Constitution Of A Debt
It is incredibly troubling to ponder the false paradigm of religious-like zeal that Americans exude towards the constitution of the United States. Like moths to a flame, this document of debt enslavement (charter) that created this corporation known as the United States attracts the hearts of people of every age, while their minds waste away viewing a high-definition revision of world history in books and on magic movie and television screens.
Ironically, it is this very document that forged (chartered) the slave colony called the USA; a Virginia Company, and part of the East India Company.
So again, we must remember exactly what a “constitution” actually is.
We must remember that freedom means to obey the laws of government, no mater how tyrannical.
And we must remember that the constitution creates political freedom, not the state of being free men in nature.
Bouvier’s again explains…
TO CONSTITUTE, contracts. To empower, to authorize. In the common form of letters of attorney, these words occur, I nominate, constitute and appoint.”
CONSTITUTION, contracts. The constitution of a contract, is the making of the contract as, the written constitution of a debt.
CONSTITUTOR, civil law. He who promised by a simple pact to pay the debt of another; and this is always a principal obligation.
EVIL. It is an “evil” within rule… to frustrate or impede a government function, whether that function is performed under a constitutional or an unconstitutional law. U.S. v. Rhoads, D.C. D.C., 48 F.Supp. 175, 176. (From Black’s Law, above)
CONSTITUTION, government. The fundamental law of the state, containing the principles upon which the government is founded, and regulating the divisions of the sovereign powers, directing to what persons each of these powers is to be confided, and the, manner it is to be exercised as, the Constitution of the United States… The words constitution and government are sometimes employed to express the same idea, the manner in which sovereignty is exercised in each state. Constitution is also the name of the instrument containing the fundamental laws of the state. 3. By constitution, the civilians, and, from them, the common law writers, mean some particular law; as the constitutions of the emperors contained in the Code.
CODE, legislation. Signifies in general a collection of laws. It is a name given by way of eminence to a collection of such laws made by the legislature.
Now, we already know that the constitution continued the debt of the Congress into the new United States government. But what was that debt continued from?
Let’s read Article 12 of the Articles of Confederation:
Article XII. All bills of credit emitted, monies borrowed, and debts contracted by, or under the authority of congress, before the assembling of the united States, in pursuance of the present confederation, shall be deemed and considered as a charge against the United States, for payment and satisfaction whereof the said united States, and the public faith are hereby solemnly pledged.
Remember what faith is, and that you are pledged as surety for the full faith and credit of the nation.
And what is it to be pledged?
PLEGIIS ACQUIETANDIS, WRIT DE. The name of an ancient writ in the English law, which lies where a man becomes pledge or surety for another to pay a certain sum of money at a certain day; after the day, if the debtor does not pay the debt, and the surety be compelled to pay, he shall have this writ to compel the debtor to pay the same.
A man is a surety to his government assigned artificial person, and thus is a debtor to government. That debt can be forced from the surety via “due process” of government courts via similar code today. And again we see debtor prisons rising from the ashes…
PLEDGE, contracts. He who becomes security for another, and, in this sense, every one who becomes bail for another is a pledge.
PLEDGER. The same as pawner. (q. v.)
PLEDGEE. The same as pawnee. (q. v.)
PLEDGE or PAWN, contracts. These words seem indifferently used to convey the same idea… 3. Sir William Jones defines a pledge to be a bailment of goods by a debtor to his creditor, to be kept till the debt is discharged… a contract by which a debtor gives to his creditor a thing to detain as security for his debt. Lord Holt’s definition is, when goods or chattels are delivered to another as a pawn, to be security for money borrowed of him by the bailor – and this, he adds, is called in Latin vadium, and in English, a pawn or pledge. 4… according to Judge Story, it may be defined to be a bailment of personal property, as security for some debt or engagement… 5. The term pledge or pawn is confined to personal property; and where real or personal property is transferred by a conveyance of the title, as a security, it is commonly denominated a mortgage. 6. A mortgage of goods is, in the common law, distinguishable from a mere pawn. By a grant or a conveyance of goods in gage or mortgage, the whole legal title passes conditionally to the mortgagee; and if not redeemed at the time stipulated, the title becomes absolute at law, though equity will interfere to compel a redemption. But in a pledge a special property only passes to the pledges, the general property remaining in the pledger. A mortgage may be without possession, but a pledge cannot be without possession… 7. Things which are the subject of pledge or pawn are ordinarily goods and chattels; but money, negotiable instruments, actions, and indeed any other valuable thing of a personal nature, such as patent-rights and manuscripts, may, by the common law, be delivered in pledge. 8. It is of the essence of the contract, that there should be an actual delivery of the thing. 9. It is essential that the thing should be delivered as a security for some debt or engagement. –Bouvier’s, 1856
Black’s 4rth importantly adds:
Pledge… The necessary elements to constitute a contract one of “pledge” are: Possession of the pledged property must pass from the pledgor to the pledgee; the legal title to the property must remain in the pledgor; and the pledgee must have a lien on the property for the payment of a debt or the performance of an obligation due him by the pledgor or some other person-while, in a “chattel mortgage,” the legal title passes to the mortgagee subject to a defeasance… A bailment of personal property as security for a debt or other obligation. The specific article delivered to the creditor in security is also called a “pledge” or “pawn.”
So specifically, the Articles of Confederation were delivered to Great Britain and France as a pledge or pawn of America and its colonies, its current and future titled land as territories, its property, and its people as surety for debt.
The subsequent formation of the new United States was for all intents and purposes a “bailout” of the bankrupt congress of the Confederacy, conveying the debt of those Masons over to the new constituted corporation called United States.
