    peace

    This masonic story was made up BY WHITE masons to re-direct the focus of the fact that the black man is the MASTER BUILDER....

    This story has many interpretations and is alluded to in both bible & Qu'ran..

    The Story...............

    Hiram Abiff was one of 3 major persons responsible for the construction of Sol-o-mon's Temple. The story says that King Solomon, Hiram King of Tyre & Hiram Abiff came together and laid out the plans for the building of the Temple. The knowledge (secret word) was to be kept amongst the 3 until the completion of the Temple. One day while Hiram Abiff, the master builder was on his way to make Noon Prayer he was approached by 3 Jewish ruffians. They were workers & their names were Jubela, Jubelo & Jubelum. Originally there were 15 men who plotted to murder the Master builder but 12 recanted because they had heavenly or spiritual conciousness. ( They say the #12 represents the heavenly or spiritual)

    Hiram Abiff was approached by Jubela at the sout gate and Jubela said:

    Jubela - "Grand Master Hiram, I am glad to meet you alone this is an opportunity I have long sought. You know you promised us that when the temple was complete we should receive the secrets of a Master Mason, or the Masters Word, whereby we might travel in foreign countries, work and receive Masters wages. The temple is near completio and we have not obtained that for which we so long sought. I therefore, Demand of you the secrets of a Master Mason.

    Hiram responds - My brother, this is AN UNUSUAL WAY OF ASKING FOR THE SECRETS OF A MASTER MASON, neither is it the proper time nor place. You keep your promise and I'll keep mine. Wait until the temple is completed, when if found worthy you will receive them, otherwise you can not.

    Jubela - Talk not to me of time nor place, at first I did not doubt your veracity, but now I do!! I therefore, Now demand of you the secrets of a Master Mason!

    Hiram - I shall not, neither can they be given until the temple is completed, and then only in the presence of Solomon, King of Israel, Hiram King of tyre & myself.

    At this point Jubela strikes Hiram Abiff across the THROAT with the 24-inch Gauge (which is one of the working tools of the 1st degree). Hiram turns and runs to the WEST gate where he is met by Jubelo who demands the "secret word" (knowledge). Hiram refuses again and is struck across the left breast by Jubelo with the square of 90 degrees (working tool of the 2nd degree or Fellow Craft). Hiram then makes a desperate attempt to escape through the EAST gate where he is approached by Jubelum who demands of him the word. For resuising the THIRD timeHiram Abiff is struck in the HEAD with a setting Maul (working instument of a master mason) which kills the Master builder.

    Hiram was killed with the same tools used to build the temple. (This could ellude to the duality of knowledge, that the same knowledge used for good can also be used for evil). After they killed him they BURIED HIM IN THE RUBBLE OF THE TEMPLE. THen, at MIDNIGHT they took his body and buried it again this time in the WEST on a hill. After this the 3 ruffians tried to escape into Ethiopia so they approached a sea captain down at the port of Joppa (password of a Mark Master Mason) with hopes of leaving Jerusalem. But they were refused because they didn't have the password of Solomon. Ince they were unable to get to Ethiopia because they did not have the correct WORD, they could not break the riddle.

    The 3 ruffians returned inland where they hid in a CAVE. The ritual states that when King Solomon entered the Temple the next day and finding the laborers in confusion and no designs on the Tressel board, became concerned about Hiram Abiff. Solomon was then informed that Hiram Abiff had not been seen since 12 NOON the day b4. So Solomon ordered a strict search of every apartment of the Temple & still not finding him anywhere in the Temple, Solomon ordered the Grand Secretary to take roll-call to see if any one of the craft were missing along with Hiram Abiff. The roll-call revealed that the 3 ruffians were also missing. King Solomon then ordered 12 men to do a Search. They were divided into parties of 3's. They traveled EAST, NORTH, SOUTH & WEST in search of the master builder. The party that traveled WEST met the Sea Captain & near the port of Joppa and asked if he had seen any strangers pass that way. The caprain told them that he saw Jubela, Jubelo & Jubelum & they wanted to go to Ethiopia but didn't have the WORD to obtain passage.

    THey returned and told SOlomon, who then ordered them to go again and search for Hiram Abiff. They searched dillingently & one of them being weary sat down at the brow of the hill where Hiram was buried. On attempteing to rise to his feet, he accidentally caught hold of the ACACIA plant which easily gave way. This excited his curiosity so he called his other 2 companions & they examined the area to find it was a newly made grave. The story goes on to say that the 3 rufians confess after being caught and taken to Solomon who found them guilty and had them executed.

    They have a couple of different endings to this story, but they all only differ on how the ruffians were found and killed. What I want to deal with here is all of the Symbollogy & the cover-up that this stroy as well as the name Hiram Abiff is used to hide even in the BLACK LODGES!!!!!!!

    I humbly leave you in peace

    This will require some study. Where do we begin? The biblical account? Extra-biblical records?

    Not to confuse your question but the name "master builder" reminds me of a play by the same name. I think the author was Ibsen. In this play the master builder is worried that he will be supplanted by the younger builders. His anxiety finally leads him to jump off his own building.


    That may be an aside or it may be a vital clue.

    peace sister,

    without looking at your reply twice, I would say a vital clue. They tell this story many ways.

    - where you DON'T begin is by asking a Mason! you can begin by either researching on the net (as you know) or lie-brary, Encyclopedia or local black book stand (if any in your area).......

    - what I have posted above is the official story, but as I said the end is the only thing that changes in regards to how the ruffians were caught and killed for Murdering Hiram Abiff!!!!

    peace

    I came across some information that said the mythical character Hiram Abif was based on the Khemetian King, Seqenen Ra, and that he was killed by two Hyksos assassins that wanted to procure the secret of king "making" from him.

    Don't know how they imagined they could procure a secret from a dead man. Guess some people don't use their brains.

    I am leaving for my sister's graduation in a few minutes. Will be back Sunday night. Until then...

    The heart of Freemasonry is the Blue Lodge with its three degrees. The climactic degree (and the final one for most Masons) in the Blue Lodge is the Third, or Master Mason Degree. The heart of the Master Mason Degree, the thing that gives it both meaning and substance, is without any doubt the reenactment of the Legend of Hiram Abiff. It is this central figure in the legend, this Hiram the 'Widow's Son,' the 'Tyrian Architect,' this 'First Grand Master' who is impersonated by every man who is initiated as a Master Mason. It is Hiram who is at the very heart of the foundation of all of Masonry…"


    According to the Masonic legend, Hiram Abiff was the chief architect of the Temple built by King Solomon. Hiram was the only one on Earth who knew the secrets of a Master Mason, including the Grand Masonic Word, the name of God (the 'ineffable name'). Knowing the secrets of a Master Mason would enable the masons working on the Temple to become Master Masons and to earn higher wages. Hiram had promised to reveal the secrets of a Master Mason upon completion of the Temple.


    One day Hiram went into the unfinished Holy of Holies to worship and to draw up plans for the workmen to follow the next day. As Hiram was leaving the Temple he was accosted by three fellow Masons in succession, who demanded that they be given the secrets before the Temple was completed. These three "ruffians" threatened and finally murdered Hiram Abiff. King Solomon sent a search team which found the body of Hiram, but was unable to raise him from the dead. Solomon himself raised and restored Hiram to life with the grip of a Master Mason. The first word which Hiram spoke was the replacement for the Grand Masonic Word, which is traditionally given to a Master Mason during his initiation.
    "It is generally believed, in spite of the fact that the Masonic authorities and writers of doctrine agree that it is not only a myth, unsupported by facts, but acknowledge that it is but a retelling of Isis and Osiris…"

    Mason should be taken aback when he is taught that the first Freemason was Tubal Cain. In the Bible, Tubal Cain id descended from the accursed line of Cain (Gen 4:17-22). Tubal Cain's father was the first person to boast about murder.

    - right, most of this is what I said initially except here it is incorrect to say that Hiram was the only one with the word as King Solomon & Hiram king of Tyre also knew the word. Only in the presence of all 3 could the word be given after inspection of the Temple's completion if the workman were found worthy!!

    also, b4 King Solomon lifted Hiram from his "shallow grave" (6 ft) with the masters grip. Hiram King of TYre tried to lift him with the grip of the 1st & 2nd degree, but failed to do so.........all of this is symbolic & not to be taken litterally!!

    I don't think anyone here knows just how deep this degree goes.......

    INFO, one day, if you're interested, we can build about this--but either on the phone or in person.

    You'd be surprised, as to the depth of HORROR that these Devils go to. :uhoh:

    POWER EQUALITY.
