Hiram Abif, a masononic myth

So we remember this guy, Mr. Hiram Abif, the only reference I can find in the bible is Genesis 49:6, which talks about a killing of a Theban King. The book of Ezekiel talks about the prophet forcibly getting rid of all things Egyptian, and bringing the Israeli’s back to YHWH/ENLIL. I do not know if Seqenenre Tao is Hiram Abif, but his death may help explain Ezekiel’s attempt to show YHWH /ENLIL’s inability to protect his temple from his enemies.

The above is my opening paragraph of an article from February 2016; it was part of our investigation in to our Templars and Freemasonry. The article delves into the politics of 3,000 years ago; unfortunately, it rather missed the point about Mr. Abif, the unfortunate soul above with the hole in his head. The legend of Hiram Abif is a case of Johnny come lately to masonry, his story only became part of the 3rd degree initiation during the 1700s, and has proven to be something of let down to masons who progress to the master’s degree. The story of Hiram Abif is in short, he came from Tyre (Jordan) on loan from the king; he was a talented smith and had many skills in many different trades. His fellow masons at the construction site of King Solomon’s temple were jealous of his skills and killed him purposely by accident when he refused to divulge the secrets of his craft. His killers were collectively known as the, Juwes or Jubela, Jubelo and Jubelum. A number of mason handgrips or handshakes were attempted to revive him but of course, they all failed. These “grips” were invented to show a masons level of ability, similar to rank insignia.

The joy of discovery, or more correctly, rediscovery, enjoyed by the Templars then given to the Rosicrucian’s under the Scottish Stuarts was lost under the Cromwellian puritans, which lasted all the way through to the English Hanovers. Unfortunately, it was King George I (1698 -1727) of England instead of men like Christopher Wren who were now in charge of Masonry.  

In our article “Dedragonized Dragon”, we talk about how one of the overriding things that a Freemason is seeking is enlightenment. Indeed a first- degree initiate is asked during the entry ritual what he desires the most, the required answer is light. Freemasonry is not a religion; however, it does suggest that Masons do attend a church of their choosing. As we have discovered in the course of these articles is that every religion seeks to enlighten its adherents. The Christian church seeks this as well but, has been led astray and has failed to understand the man that it venerates. In our article “MFKZT The Jesus Connection”, we learn about Christ and his connection to the light, and how he is intimately connected to it in this form,

 In 1904, King Edward VII was on the British throne and Theodore Roosevelt was president of the USA, Captain Robert Scot and the Discovery were returning from his ill-fated effort to successfully reach the south pole. At the same time British archaeologist Sir W. M., Flinders Petrie was on a wind-swept rocky plateau in the Sinai desert. He had been sponsored by the now Egypt Exploration Society, its purpose was to survey the copper and turquoise mines in the region. This was smack dab in the middle of the exodus story of Moses country. The King James Version calls it Mt Horeb, it is more correctly known as Mt Choreb in the Septuagint bible from the 3rd century B.C.

Petrie’s team had no particular expectation of the place, but as they summit the 2600-foot mountain, they made a monumental discovery, spreading over a 70-meter area from a man-made cave and temple. They found inscriptions that dated the place to the fourth dynasty pharaoh Sneferu who reigned in about 2600 B.C. Petrie writes, “The whole place was buried and no one had any knowledge of it until we cleared the site”.

Sir Petrie’s find though monumental, was in contravention of the charter given him by the now Egypt Exploration Society, of whose purpose was to prove the church’s version of the Old Testament. Petrie wrote a book called Researches in Sinai, it was published by John Murray of London in 1906, that book is now very hard to find. (I would love to get a copy of it myself.)

It would appear that the temple was in use for a minimum of 1,500 years, this means it was producing mfkzt from before the pyramids of Giza were built. The temple was simple in outlay consisting of sand stone quarried from the mountains, adjoining halls, shrines, and chambers all set within surrounding walls. Many of the pillars had stelae of ruling Egyptian kings. After clearing the site Petrie was noted as saying “There is no other such monument known which makes us regret the more that it is not in better preservation”. Petrie and his team were utterly baffled when they found a metallurgist’s crucible and a considerable amount of pure white powder hidden beneath carefully laid flagstones, many tons of it in Petrie’s estimation. In the ensuing debate as to what this strange substance might be many thought it a type of residue from turquoise mining or ash from copper smelting. However, since there was no evidence of either material being present the question remained

We have all heard of the silliness of the mark of Cain, a single point · surrounded by a circle Ο, As we have discovered Cain was not his real name and, he was a great artificer, a smith whose work in gold was for the gods. The Annunaki. We are first introduced to this strange substance in Abraham’s meeting with King Melchizedek of Salem (Genesis 14:18). Our next meeting with the stuff is in (Exodus 32:20), when Moses burns the golden calf and, builds the Ark of the Covenant at the very place Sir W. M., Flinders Petrie discovered! The Israelite question becomes forever after, what is it? The “it” of course is manna. The Shem – an – na, bread – Bethlehem, Jesus’s House of bread – gold.

The Templars after a thousand years partially rediscovered the secrets of MFKZT; the Rosicrucian’s too knew that there was a word for it, but not the word itself, calling it only the light. This word our Freemasons yet search for; using the words Mahabyn, or Mahabone, both are meaningless. It may be though, that with the infernal almost incomprehensible Scots accent may have something to do with the problem, the word might actually be Machbenah, referring to the Ben – Ben stone.
