David Allen Hulse - The Cubic Stone of Freemasonry, “New Dimensions for the Cube of Space”, 2000.
The Cubic Stone appears as the Masonic Stone of foundation in the Rituals of both the Royal Arch and the Rose Croix, among other high degrees of Freemasonry. This Cube was secretly inscribed with the four-lettered name of God (Yahweh).
Masonic lore relates much Old Testament history concerning this perfect cube-shaped Stone. On it, Adam is said to have made his first Offerings to God. Jacob used it as the pillow when he experienced his marvelous dream - the foot of the ladder he beheld in his vision rested on a Cubic Stone. Moses used it as a Talisman to lead the Israelites out of Egypt to the promised land. It was hidden in the Holy of Holies in the first Temple and was used as the cornerstone of the second.
The Cubic Stone is also used in the first degrees of Blue Masonry in the Symbolism of the rough Ashlar transformed by hard work into the perfect Ashlar. The rough, unhewn Stone from which the Stones of the Temple are carved is known as a rough Ashlar. This rough Ashlar is the candidate, still burdened by the imperfections of the world when first introduced into the Mysteries. After the candidate becomes an initiate and has accomplished the Spiritual work of Self-Perfection, the rough Ashlar of the candidate becomes the perfect Ashlar of the Master. This perfect Ashlar is in the shape of a perfect Cube, whose six faces are polished to Perfection through slow, steady work.
“Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy.”
God wants us to show mercy, just as He would show mercy to us.
“because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment.” -James 2:13
A great example of this would be in John 8, when the Pharisees brought a woman caught in the act of adultery to Jesus:
“The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group
and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery.
In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?”
When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”
At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there.
Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”
“No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.””
LOVE IT MOSES! Even though he got eliminated, he should be proud at how far he got. He’s got talent an is better than 99.9% of these rappers dominated the charts now in days. I hope he goes far and wish him much success.
