Today I want to ask and answer the question: WHERE and WHO is GOD in Masonry?
The candidate, from the first degree on, is led to believe he will learn secret so important they must be protected by solemn oaths on the Bible and serious enough to be covered by death penalties. After swearing the oath he learns a secret handshake and a word which is easily found in the Old Testament (Boaz). A similar set of secrets is imparted to him in the second degree. His anticipation builds and in the Second degree he learns what the liberal arts are and that the letter "G" stands for God and geometry (he only thinks he learns these things). When the candidate hands over more money and learns much memory work, including the blood oath of 2nd degree which is six paragraphs long, he is ready for the ultimate secret of Masonry (or so he thnks). He is taken through a long bone-rattling 3rd degree initiation. Then after all this , he is told the great SECRET of Masonry, THE SACRED NAME OF GOD, (which has been guarded by hours of ritual and three chilling oaths) HAS BEEN FOREVER LOST! He has paid hundreds of dollars and invested months to learn that the "Master's Word" has been lost. Instead he is given a substitute word, "Mal Hah Bone", which is whispered into his ear while embracing the Master of the Lodge on the Five Points of Fellowship. Masonic ritual is concerned with the recovery of the "Lost Word," presumed to be the name of God - supposedly lost through the murder of the architect, Hiram Abiff, during the ritual of the Royal Arch Degree. It is here that the SECRET NAME of the DEITY OF MASONRY is revealed. That name is "JAOBULON."
"JAO" is the Greek word for JEHOVAH
"BUL" is a rendering of the name, BAAL and
"ON" is the term used in Babylonian mysteries to call upon the deity "OSIRIS"!
The secret ritual book of the Craft prints the letters J. B. O. It states that: "We three do meet and agree - in peace, love and unity-the Sacred Word to keep - and never to diverge the same - until we three or three such as we are - do meet and agree." Thus, no Royal Arch Mason can pronounce the whole sacred name by himself!
What you see represented then, as the god of Freemasonry, is a three-headed monster, 2/3 satanic and far removed from the God of the Bible. This explains why Jesus is not allowed to be mentioned in the Lodge...not even in the ending of prayers! Obviously the god of the Lodge is not the God of the Bible.
Romans 11:4 states, "But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal."
Here you have the God of the Bible connected with two the most contemptible and notorious idols and of the Old Testament! How could any true Christian be a part of such?
