Two symbols of the Royal Arch Masonry - Past H and Past J.

Freemasonry describes itself as a beautiful system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols. The symbolism is mainly drawn from the manual tools of stonemasons - the square and compasses, the level and plumb rule, among others. A moral lesson is attached to each of these tools. The meaning of the symbolism is taught and explored through ritual.

All Freemasons begin their journey in the “craft” by being progressively initiated, passed and raised into the three degrees of craft. During these three rituals, the candidate is progressively taught the meanings of the lodge symbols, and entrusted with grips, signs and words to signify to other Masons that he has been so initiated. The initiations are part allegory and part lecture, and revolve around the construction of the Temple of Solomon, and the artistry and death of his chief architect, Hiram Abiff. The degrees are those of Entered apprentice, Fellowcraft and Master Mason.

This masonic lodge is still in use. The photographer Andrew Moore says the skull and bones in the foreground are real. The interiors of the masonic lodges tend to be decorated with handmade, personalized items. 

 

KAZAKHSTAN AND THE ILLUMINATI IN AN UNFINISHED METROPOLIS

BY DARMON RICHTER / 08 OCT 2014

Most people living in the western world know surprisingly little about Kazakhstan. Surprising, considering this Eurasian country ranks as the ninth largest nation on the planet. Yet it has a regional population of just 17 million, which is less than some cities and comparatively sparse for such a vast landmass. Kazakhstan nevertheless has an ancient and fascinating history. Did you know, for example, that these lands are believed to be the evolutionary birthplace of the apple

In recent years, Kazakhstan has become better known in conspiracy circles for its dazzling new capital,Astana. The internet abounds with theories that highlight the rich thread of occult symbolism which seemingly runs through Astana’s futuristic architecture. Some of the more extravagant theories name it an Illuminati-funded, future Asian capital of the coming “New World Order.” 

It’s easy to dismiss such conspiracy talk outright; but, for the sake of argument, we’ll take a look through some of the key points which form the basis of the assumption.

What Really Happened When the House Stenographer Was Pulled Off the Floor (Mind Controlled by her handler/triggered)

House Stenographer Says Holy Spirit Moved Her to Shout, ‘God Will Not Be Mocked’

“Praise be to God. He will not be mocked. The greatest deception here is this is not one nation under God. It never was. Had it been, it would not have been. No. It would not have been. The Constitution would not have been written by Free Masons. They go against God. You cannot serve two masters. Praise be to God, the Lord Jesus Christ. Praise forever.” Reidy says the Holy Spirit made her to do it. “For the past 2 1/2 weeks the Holy Spirit has been waking me up in the middle of the night and preparing me (through my reluctance and doubt) to deliver a message in the House Chamber,” she told Fox News’ Chad Pergram in a statement. “That is what I did last night.”

"What she was finding out was that God was impressing on her heart that He had a message He wanted her to share with the House of Representatives. The reason it took four weeks was because of her reluctance and her doubt. She didn’t want to do it. The big vote, the whole crew was there, and she just felt the Holy Spirit knows the time she was to go up,” he reports. She told him that the words she had spoken were not her own, that she had just been the messenger. She said she didn’t know what she was going to say, Obviously, it is not in the job description to get up and make statements,” the husband says, adding, “She wasn’t trying to disrupt or disrespect the House in any way. She was just being obedient to what God had placed in her heart.” - Source

Masonic Life in New York

Although Prince Hall, who is believed to have migrated from Barbados, was instrumental in establishing the black Masonic movement in the United States, Caribbeans did not create separate lodges for themselves - not even in New York City, where their numbers were large enough to achieve such an end. Rather, they affiliated themselves with black lodges where, in the 1920s and 1930s, some of them rose to positions of prominence. In this 1922 picture, Arthur Schomburg stands among Masons and Odd Fellows at the Ionic Temple in Brooklyn.
