Freemasons

Freemasons. The Freemasons are an association of people who believe they have a piece of wisdom that not even King Solomon of Israel had.

That piece of wisdom is:

  • On wedding night it is not the size of your pockets that counts, it is love, even though sometimes love is never enough.

The theory behind this piece of wisdom is that when the Queen of Sheba visited King Solomon from Ethiopia, her interest was in gaining access to his wisdom, whereas he was boasting about his possessions. When King Solomon asked the Queen of Sheba to stay an extra night he put more of the herbs in her food and got her to agree she could stay on the basis he would take nothing of more hers and she would take nothing more of his. He placed a glass of wine by her bed and when she coughed and drank the wine because of the herbs he convinced her to have sex with him. The Queen of Sheba left for Ethiopia the next day, carrying Solomon’s unborn heir, and he was left heart broken for the rest of his life. His writing of the book of Ecclesiastes where he claims life is futile is cited as proof he lacked the wisdom all Freemasons claim to have.

Freemasons join lodges and pay a fee in-keeping with the size of their pocket – the more money they have then the more they pay. The aim of the Freemasons is to accelerate members through the establishment by teaching them the ritual required to receive the honours they receive from for instance the British Monarchy. In exchange Freemasons are required to signal in photographs, video and similar recorded media that they are Freemasons by placing their hand inside a jacket or similar garment they are wearing.

Not all Freemasons lodges are of equal standing. The lodge of the British Royal Family for instance, called the Mulberry Lodge 9834, has members of the highest standing, who are part of the Illuminati, or in other words, those Freemasons in positions of significant influence.

Messiahs in the Abrahamic Texts

Messiahs in the Abrahamic Texts. The following table lists the Messiahs in the Abrahamic Texts.

Messiah # Messiah Name Abrahamic Text
1 King David of Israel* The First Testament (Torah and Prophets)
2 King Solomon of Israel* The First Testament (Torah and Prophets)
3 Jesus Christ* The Second Testament (New Testament)
4 The Prophet Muhammad* The Third Testament (The Qu’ran)
5 Joseph Smith The Fourth Testament (Doctrines and Covenants of Joseph Smith)
6 The Reverend Sun Myung Moon The Fifth Testament (Divine Principle, Exposition of the Divine Principle)

* Denotes the Messiah is also a Desire of Nations.

Jesus

Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus of Nazareth is the Desire of Nations of the Third Testament, also known as the New Testament.

Jesus, which means “God saves“, attained the status of Desire of Nations at a trial held by the Roman occupiers of Palestine. Jesus was charged with trying to subvert Roman rule in Palestine by his claim to be “King of the Jews” by virtue of the fact he was of the hereditary line of King David of Israel and had become a Messiah following 40 days of fasting in the Judaean Desert where he was tempted by Satan but instead obtained total connection with the God Head.

The jury in Jesus’s trial, which was held during the period of Passover, was asked whether he as the “Messiah” should be freed, or whether someone with the same first name as him, but whose surname was Barabbas should be freed instead. The jury proclaimed, “The Messiah!”, thus acknowledging Jesus’s divinity. When asked what sentence Jesus should be given, the jury directed crucifixion, thus subjecting him to a further time of trial.

During his crucifixion, Jesus met all the other criteria to be a Desire of Nations. Not a bone on his body was broken during the process. His enemies, including those that were part of the jury, were below his feet. The cross he was held to contained an inspection that he was “King of the Jews”. Therefore as a result of the Roman legal system, those who were present at Jesus’s trial accepted he was Messiah, Son and King and thus a Desire of Nations.

Messiah (Abrahamic)

Messiah. A Messiah in the context of the Abrahamic Texts is a preacher that has attained the highest level of awareness of the God Head.

To become a Messiah, of which there will be only 99 in the history of the universe, corresponding with the 99 names for Allah, a preacher will have to do all of the following:

  • Not a bone in their body must be broken when they are undergoing a time of trial.
  • They must be at the right hand of God until their enemies are below their feet.
  • Their divinity must be put to test by someone who otherwise trusts in the integrity of it.

At present a total of 6 Messiahs have been identified from the Abrahamic Texts.

Son (Abrahamic)

Son. A Son in respect of the Abrahamic Texts is:

  • A Son of God, who has been anointed to carry out a specific role on earth. For example, Jesus’s purpose is to save those on earth.
  • A Son of David, who descends from King David of Israel. For example, Jesus.
  • A Son of Man, who is incarnated by the Holy Spirit. For example, Isaac was incarnate of Sarah and Jesus was incarnate of Mary.

Flag of Saint David

The flag of Saint David (Welsh: Baner Dewi Sant) is a yellow cross on a black field, with the yellow representing the gold of King Solomon and the black representing his father King David of Israel.

The Flag of Saint David has been used as a flag representing Wales (as an alternative to the Red Dragon flag), in the same sense that the crosses of Saint George, Saint Andrew, Saint Patrick and Saint Piran are used to represent England, Scotland, Ireland and Cornwall (of which they are respectively patron saints). It is similar to the arms of the Diocese of St David’s and the colours have been used by universities associated with the location of St David’s in Wales.

In 2007 George Hargreaves, leader of the Welsh Christian Party, campaigned to replace the Flag of Wales with the St David’s Cross, claiming that the red dragon on the Welsh flag was “nothing less than the sign of Satan”. The current Flag of Wales is associated with the myth of a red dragon defeating a much bigger white dragon, as King David of Israel defeated Goliath. It is considered a symbol of war. George Hargreaves’s petition failed in part because The Flag of Saint David is based on the colours associated with King David of Israel and his son King Solomon of Israel, who were both known for their military superiority.
