HIRAM ABIFF & OSIRIS Many of the Christian preachers and leaders have been initiated into the so-called secrets of Freemasonry. And they know that the story of Jesus Christ, as it is understood by the masses of the people, has its origin in mythology and paganism; yet they will not educate their following to this truth. The Hiramic legend is perhaps the most important story in the Masonic teachings. In order for a mason to be considered a Master Mason he must imitate the symbolic ritual of Hiram’s death. Once the Mason reaches the 32nd degree he finds out among other things, that the story of Hiram Abiff actually refers and alludes to the story and life of Jesus which is derived from the Osiris legend as well as other ancient legends and pagan ideas. So lets compare Osiris with Hiram: Osiris 1. There is the possession of something valuable, Osiris possessed a kingdom. 2. There is a conspiracy-Typhon/Satan and his followers conspire against Osiris 3. There is conflict between Osiris and Satan/Set 4. There is death-Osiris is murdered 5. The death is by his brother 6. The body is buried at the foot of a Tamarind tree 7. There is a first search by Isis-Meri 8. She questions everyone she meets 9. The search is accidently successful 10. There is a second search, Isis searches for the 14 pieces of Osiris body (waning of the moon) 11. Isis finds all the parts except the penis (capstone) Circumcision is ritual of Osiris 12. There is something forever lost Osiris penis replaced with an Obelisk (pyramid) 13. Isis makes the substitute Osiris’s Eucharist (Christians make bread & Wine) 14. There is a Resurrection sometimes symbolized as erection of penis (restored/revived) Hiram Abiff 1. There is the possession of something valuable-Hiram passed the master’s word 2. There is a conspiracy –fifteen fellow crafts conspire against Hiram. 3. There is a conflict-Hiram is attacked by Jubela, Jubelo and jubelum at 12:00 noon. 4. There is death-Hiram is killed by Jubelum. 5. Hiram’s death was arranged by his brother (Jesus by brothers in faith) 6. His body is buried at the foot of a tamarind or arcacia tree. 7. There is a first search-twelve fellow crafts search for the three murderers. 8. They question everyone they meet 9. Their search is accidentally successful. 10. There is a second search-three fellow crafts go in search of the body. 11. There is a finding –the body is found in a grave dug due east and west. 12. There is a loss-the master’s word is lost 13. There is a substitution-Mah-hah-bone is the substitute (give that Dog/God a bone) Why has thou forsaken me? 14. There is a resurrection of Hiram is raised from the grave. It’s alleged that Jesus incorporates himself as the keystone/capstone mentioned in Psalm 118:2 that was rejected. It seems to me Jesus is taken up and evil ones are laid down at the bottom of the foundation. Recall Peter rejects Jesus is called Satan and becomes a rock foundation turned upside down as a gatekeeper for the underworld.
