Why Father’s Day Matters

The outright assault on the traditional family structure continues. This time, Father’s Day, an annual day set aside to appreciate the healthy father figure in people’s lives, but even this couldn’t stay pure for long.

Good Morning Britain tweeted that:

“Is it time to ban Father’s Day? With a rise in single parent, blended, and same-sex families, is it time to get more inclusive and appreciate parents all year round?”

With a total disregard for the science behind a non-traditional family structure, the mainstream media is bashing a symbol of stability, success, happiness, and wellbeing.

The negative effect of non-traditional families on human wellbeing is astonishingly understated, as I will explain.

Here’s some facts:

  • Single parent households double the likelihood of child mental illness.
  • Single mothers are more likely to get ill when they get older.
  • Children raised by gay couples are twice as likely to be in poverty as children of straight married couples.
  • Households with a single mother and a non-biological father have the highest rates of child abuse and neglect.
  • 85% of children who exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes.
  • Boys who grow up in fatherless homes have significantly lower testosterone levels than average.
  • Children born to single mothers show higher levels of aggressive behavior than children born to married mothers.
  • 71% of high school dropouts come from fatherless homes.
  • 70% of juveniles in state operated institutions come from fatherless homes.
  • 71% of adolescent patients in chemical abuse centers come from fatherless homes.
  • 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes.

Stefan Molyneux, a popular philosophy YouTuber, covered the effects of female-headed/single mother households and the associated poverty rates. In every example poverty rates were above that of the average poverty rate and the poverty rate of married couple families.

Welfare rewards and encourages social instability and boosts dependence on the state/big government.

Molyneux also discussed in the video below that in the West the introduction of welfare has subsidized irresponsibility by taxing stable, good income families and redistributing the resources to keep single mother households afloat. The effect of this is placing pressure on responsible members of society and encouraging social instability by funding the lower-end of society and helping it flourish.

Molyneux argues that because society is accustomed to the “safety net” guarantee of welfare, it feels at liberty to make irresponsible decisions and involve itself in marriages, decisions and partnerships that are dysfunctional rather than practical.

Welfare has broken apart the strength of strong, effective families and replaced it with an irreverence towards forging lasting, stable relationships — which form the bedrock of society.

To take things further, the deep state economists and legislators are perfectly aware that subsidizing bad decisions will equal more bad decisions. In fact, it’s their goal; suppress social stability and cohesion in the masses, promote fragmentation, atomization and encourage an unhealthy dependence and allegiance to a nanny/provider state, that, by extension, gets to call all the shots and direct all policy-making unhindered.

Feeding a cancer helps it to grow — the welfare state is a powerful fertilizer for the social cancers that afflict western civilization.

More welfare emboldens the weak, erodes the stable middle class, and empowers the deep state.

The Modern Journalism Crisis

“There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it.
There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.
The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?
We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”

 John Swinton, preeminent New York journalist, at a press banquet, 1880.


Journalism is, for the most part, a dead, bastardized profession — no longer is it about holding power to account and keeping the public duly informed.

The line between journalism — traditionally, the dispassionate reporting of facts — and outright partisanship seems blurrier than ever.

As it has been for over a century since the dawn of Yellow Journalism — Journalists are answerable to a preset story selection process, funneled into news material that staunchly avoids controversy, instead exalting vague, generalized, and often trivial topics as “newsworthy”, over ones that could be “defamatory” or be deemed “too risky” to report on.

Today, Journalists espouse prepackaged, fence-sitting, irresolute propaganda that shuns the devil hiding in the details — with production mostly marketed towards the lowest common denominator; opting for simplified language, generalized explanations, and an inability to come to conclusions and actually analyze and inform rather than simply describe and commentate.

Journalism is branded as a “risky business” to deter maverick Journalism.

A high-stakes, red tape laden “minefield” mentality is hammered into every Journalist hopeful in an attempt to extinguish the curious spark that fuels the real investigative and analytical Journalism that we all need more of.

They would rather you play it safe and not “lose your job by getting it wrong”.

The result is tame media content that is vague, tiptoes, and is fearful of causing grief or insult, this is a known form of information suppression.

Today’s Journalism is a Journalism of mouthpieces, built on the ugly clutches of fear and dependency, today’s Journalism is intellectual prostitution.

The best Journalism has always come from dissidents, this is because the very basis of Journalism is dissent itself. The stranglehold of ‘professionalism’ has made journalists oblivious to the compromises with authority they are constantly making.

It has also ensured that many readers remain oblivious to the same compromises.

“The New York Times is the house organ of the Establishment. It is committed, both editorially and in its presentation of the news, to the interests of an Establishment: continuity, security and legitimacy. Therefore they generally support business and finance, the American version of empire, the government and the president, until, and unless, some excess is so egregious that it poses a threat to continuity, security or legitimacy.”

— Larry Beinhart, American author.

Like ‘terrorism’, it turns out that ‘advocacy journalism’ is a sin committed only by opponents of established power, as the income dependency blind spot of mainstream Journalists taints the media pool for everyone:

This is especially so with the recent ‘fake news’ outcry slanting solely alternative “conspiracy” media outlets, while hypocritically ignoring the overwhelming globalist advocacy of the mainstream press.

“The major Western news outlets now conflate the discrete difficulties from made-up ‘fake news’ and baseless ‘conspiracy theories’ with responsible dissenting analysis,” he wrote. “All get thrown into the same pot and subjected to disdain and ridicule.”

— Robert Parry, American investigative journalist.


Mainstream Journalism education produces willing and committed establishment mouthpieces that don’t know the Emperor has no clothes.

The backgrounds of journalists who repeatedly and suspiciously repeat talking-points usually reveals a similar and extensive “resume” of mainstream indoctrination, it’s a common observable pattern, not to mention media outlets hiring left-leaning individuals over right-leaning ones; those with the liberal suitability that makes them easier to adopt, and get behind the agenda of the outlet.

Principles held by mainstream Journalists are often features of indoctrinated enslavement that have become too doctrinally familiarized to eschew.

Western media is directly and indirectly promoting Western imperialism.

Like the sons of chiefs in Britannia, foreign journalists serving Western media branches, i.e. Al Jazeera, probably have honestly convinced themselves that these features of control and manipulation are instead the “novelties of civilization.”

International Journalism acts as cultural imperialism for Western corporate interests.

Today, a “softer” version of imperialism is disseminated under the guise of journalism and academia.

This kind of imperialism was present in the elite-owned British Empire, when education and missionary programs were created to replace independent and unique local perspectives and culture with the uniform perspective and culture of Britain, serving British aspirations of global hegemony.

It sought to transform indigenous communities into imperial archetypes of civility and modernity by re-modelling the individual, the community, and the state through western, Christian philosophies that encouraged uniformity to the Empire and smoothed the aggravations of cultural and ideological acclimatization.

“We have few princes and earls today, but we surely have their modern-day equivalents in the very wealthy who seek to manage the news, make unsavoury facts disappear and elect representatives who are in service to their own economic and social agenda… The “free press” is no longer a check on power. It has instead become part of the power apparatus itself. And this is dangerous.”

— Dan Rather, American Journalist.

Today’s globalization takes these “soft” imperialist social engineering strategies to a new and unprecedented level, to push a cultural-Marxist deconstruction of foreign and domestic systems and entities that threaten globalism:

Today we have a large variety of truths: truths for feminists, truths for blacks, Muslims, Hispanics, homosexuals, trans-gendered, truths for the foreign policy community that serves the military/security complex, truths for the neocons, truths for the One Percent that control the economy and the economists who serve them, truths for “white supremacists,” itself a truth term for their opponents. You can add to the list. The “truth” in these “truths” is that they are self-serving of the group that expresses them. Their actual relation to truth is of no consequence to those espousing the “truths.”


Weaponized academia: A Journalist’s mainstream education focuses on these toxic tenets:

  1. Be risk averse, play it safe, do what you are told: The profession of Journalism is risky, you should always have somebody’s reputation and the legal ramifications of any given story in the forefront of your mind (rather than advocacy of the truth); it is far easier to report on less controversial stories, and we encourage you to do so by providing you with safe, easy stories. Be very scared of the government being instrumental in locking up journalists for the crime of exposing the establishment, but hopefully you will be too loyal to the establishment to figure out that it is worth exposing.
  2. Become an ideologue: Conspiracy and alternative media is “fake news”, and should be shunned and rallied against without question, do otherwise and you are a dunce that isn’t worthy of being a Journalist. Accept other traditionally held mainstream media ideas such as the Russia bogeyman scare.
  3. Be unquestioningly loyal to us: You should unquestionably trust our establishment-owned Associated Press and other mainstream outlets as the best sources, we encourage you to work for them and use them as reference points in your research because they are “unbiased”.
  4. Cultural indoctrination: Hatred of the West and its “privileged”, colonial native population must be at the forefront of your Journalistic philosophy and ethical advocacy, else you are an immoral Journalist.
  5. Get used to doing it our way: Your stories and original content will be screened before its publication by a left-leaning, agenda-driven editor who will likely reject anything they and their masters disapprove of, so just save yourself the effort and produce propaganda for us otherwise you will not make it in this field. Accept the limits and compromises of corporate media that will inhibit you as a Journalist and become another “Repeater”.
  6. Normalization of media tyranny: Everything we have taught you is how the industry has always been and always will be, it’s automatically the “best formula” because you’ve been taught by “professionals” who “know everything” about the industry — so yield, accept our compartmentalization and take up the standard of sell-out doctrinaire.

The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion describes the elite’s intentions for weaponized education:

“We must introduce into their education all those principles which have so brilliantly broken up their order.”

We shall turn them into “unthinking submissive brutes waiting for things to be presented before their eyes in order to form an idea of them…”

“We shall erase from the memory of men all facts of previous centuries which are undesirable to us…”

“Do not suppose for a moment that these statements are empty words: think carefully of the successes we arranged for Darwinism, Marxism, Nietzsche-ism…. it should be plain to see what a disintegrating importance these directives have had upon the minds of the goyim. ” (Protocol 2)
Let me remind you of a passage from a 1930’s Communist manual on brainwashing. “In the United States, we have been able to alter the works of William James, and others, …and to place the tenets of Karl Marx, Pavlov, Lamarck, and the data of Dialectic Materialism into the textbooks of psychology, to such a degree that anyone thoroughly studying psychology becomes at once a candidate to accept the reasonableness of Communism.”

We can look at the Reuters fellowship program and see news organisations like Thompson Reuters, the BBC, The Economist and The Guardian are held up as “examples” of journalism.

This is despite their active manipulation of information toward particular political objectives rather than accurately informing the public.

In particular, these news services played crucial roles in promoting wars like the US-UK led invasion of Iraq in 2003, intentionally obfuscating critical information the public and policymakers required to make an honest assessment of the decision to go to war.

The BBC in particular has been embroiled in impropriety ranging from deceptive news coverage to paid-for documentaries and even criminal conduct committed by individuals, and covered up institutionally.

What isn’t taught in mainstream Journalistic education is corporate partisanship and the dangerously ever-centralizing state of major media organisations:

The elites are buying out the competition at an alarming rate, you may see many faces of the media, but behind it all there are only a few owners.


“The American media does not serve the truth. It serves the government and the interest groups that empower the government. The function of the “mainstream media” is to sell products and to brainwash the audience for the government and interest groups.”

— Paul Craig Roberts, American economist, journalist, blogger, and former civil servant.

The Motives For Globalism?

The global community today is clearly in a state of flux. This is not an aberration – we are in the midst of a normal and periodic global reordering. We shall briefly take a “big picture” look at this phenomenon and attempt to glean an understanding as to the direction that we are heading as citizens of a global society. It is my hope that these observations can foster a more in depth discussion between reasonable people; leading to the development of ideas which can then be implemented to improve the human condition.

What is the core motive and means for the select few that together actively seek to steer the world towards their collective vision? Is this vision a noble, virtuous one? Will it work in practice?

It’s easy to oppose Globalism in the waywardly pessimistic lights espoused by alternative circles; “A genocidal order of chaos”, “A warmongering Empire”, “A misanthropic Zionist-Satanic creed”, “A covert tyrannical force”, “Money manipulators”; all are true, but all have a purpose pushed by the enlightened few who see humanity for what it is at its common worst; irresponsible, pleasure-seeking, egotistical, selfish, so on.

Their realism has spawned an idealism; that man can be brought into an “Age of Reason”, that there is a solution to the human problem.

It is equally easy to get on board with how Globalism is popularly portrayed (and misrepresented) to the masses; “Public-private partnerships.” “Distributing energy fairly in an energy-scarce world.” “Saving the environment.” “Reducing manmade warming.” “No child left behind.” “Open borders.” “Tolerating and celebrating diversity.” “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” “It takes a Village.” “A kinder gentler government will take care of you”.

But there is a middle ground that must be examined, that Globalism is a process, that while devastatingly immoral in its process, may be the forceful order necessary to salvage and secure the world’s, and mankind’s, future — or at least be a viable alternative to the self-destructive path we are presently on as a species.

The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion (1903) purports to document the minutes of a late-19th-century meeting attended by world Jewish/Satanic leaders, the “Elders of Zion”, who are conspiring to take over the world.

One claim in the document is that the masses are too unreasonable and unruly to rule by “reasonable counsels and arguments”, legitimizing their secretive and subversive approach to rule, and punctuating an anti-human ideology that spearheads the globalist vision:

“Is it possible for any sound logical mind to hope with any success to guide crowds by the aid of reasonable counsels and arguments, when any objection or contradiction, senseless though it may be, can be made and when such objection may find more favour with the people, whose powers of reasoning are superficial? Men in masses and the men of the masses, being guided solely by petty passions, paltry beliefs, customs, traditions and sentimental theorism, fall a prey to party dissension, which hinders any kind of agreement even on the basis of a perfectly reasonable argument.” — The Protocols of the Elders of Zion


“The mob is a savage and displays its savagery at every opportunity. The moment the mob seizes freedom in its hands it quickly turns to anarchy, which in itself is the highest degree of savagery.”
― The Protocols of the Elders of Zion


“[…] one simple, true piece of knowledge, the basis of all knowledge — the knowledge of the structure of human life, of social existence, which requires division of labour, and, consequently, the division of men into classes and conditions. It is essential for all to know that owing to difference in the objects of human activity there cannot be any equality, […] human suffering, arising from an education which does not correspond with the work which individuals are called upon to do. After a thorough study of this knowledge the peoples will voluntarily submit to authority and accept such position as is appointed them in the State.”
― The Protocols of the Elders of Zion

Their pursuit is utilitarian; but do the envisaged “utopian” ends justify their duly reckless means?


Enlightenment.

They see themselves as exempt of these basal vices of the human condition, which, in their view, makes them solely responsible for directing humanity towards this vision of ‘enlightenment’ by whatever means necessary, their involvement with occult Masonic ideology reflects this.

Yet, even within their numbered ranks, the Globalist families pursue different ideas, even at times dissenting from the agreed agenda, as seen with the Kennedy family and the subsequent “assassinations” in the sixties. However illuminated they regard themselves, they still seem far-removed from the “perfection” they seek to embody.

They are the “Philosopher Kings”, self-proclaimed Gods in the limited bodies and minds of men.

They see the need to use their immeasurable knowledge, volition, and power to steer the human race away from tribal, base-consciousness ruled iniquity, to a totalitarian, Communist-Globalist-Technocratic “Plato’s Republic” enlightened utopia of genetically and epi-genetically “flawless” superhumans. All without accounting for the selfish gene that underpins everything; the primal, selfish instincts within us all, and the unshakable natural law of free will.

No matter where it was tried, communism has always resulted in mountains of dead bodies. As for socialist economics, it has always resulted in shortages, inefficiency, poverty, and desperation. Why? Because it operates in opposition to human nature.

Form follows function.

Why is the world as it is today, and has always been throughout history? The human condition — the form (of the world and all human affairs) follows the function of the individual’s biology in collective representation.

Their grand social pursuit will require deconstruction and reconstruction of the very fabric of the natural order of all things human; to make a communist utopia work you must reconfigure man and nature itself.

“Liberty, Equality, Fraternity,” […] the intellectuals, could not make anything out of the uttered words in their abstractness; did not note the contradiction of their meaning and inter- relation: did not see that in nature there is no equality, cannot be freedom; that Nature herself has established inequality of minds, of characters, and capacities, just as immutably as she has established subordination to her laws”
— The Protocols of the Elders of Zion

Their highest regard is the ‘higher-thought’ human ability to perceive all the components that makes man what he is, the human awareness, or “consciousness”, cogito.

They believe this God-given gift means that they can control the human destiny in every regard, provided enough enlightenment and occult understanding is achieved, hence the imagery of the all-seeing eye. They believe that democracy is not a viable approach to sound policy-making.

“The ill-guided acquaintance of a large number of persons with questions of polity creates utopian dreamers and bad subjects, as you can see for yourselves from the example of the universal education.”
— The Protocols of the Elders of Zion

“Character, in the long run, is the decisive factor in the life of an individual and of nations alike.” — Theodore Roosevelt, 32nd US President, Freemason

The spiritual argument states that no matter how “wise” a gnostic man is, he cannot ever understand the higher plane and the doings of God, they will always be blinded by the flesh that binds us.

The Globalists are a select society of wise men, “intelligentsia”, who think they know what is best for humanity. But they do not and they cannot.

“Nobody can understand what God does here on earth. No matter how hard people try to understand it, they cannot. Even if wise people say they understand, they cannot; no one can really understand it.” — Ecclesiastes 8:17

Globalists Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama made several references to the people they considered “enemies of benevolent control and the new world order”: bitter clingers with religion and guns, and a basket of deplorables. This was an effort to characterize “hold-outs” who insisted on freedom. Freedom, in elite eyes, is the resistance, plain and simple. It is archaic and dangerous. It is ignorant and senseless. It is primitive.

Freedom, on the other hand, implies self-reliance, self-sufficiency, inviolable private property, and the protections expressed in the Bill of Rights.


The Utopian vision will be corrupted.

This Utopian vision for man is something that, inevitably, will become bastardized; as those who are attempting this “great idea” or “Age of Reason” are flawed humans themselves; liable to exploit, and prone to chaos as much as the masses they seek to control. Humans are beings of entropy, not of order.

There is no essentially “perfect being”.

There is no essentially “perfect being”, perhaps in varying physicality and intelligence but not in moral character. Even those few who rule benevolently, possessing great self-control and sound moral character; their successors are not guaranteed to be as they were. You can mitigate basal human nature, but never truly extinguish it.

Wherever humans organize themselves to collective moral character and order — corruption always comes in the end.

“For you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light” — Ephesians 5:8

As to quote the Bible, we are all ‘fallen’, and hopelessly anthropocentric, to pursue a Utopia of man, is to ultimately manifest a dystopia masquerading as a Utopia.

The human body cannot be engineered to this moral ‘perfection’ as so without sacrificing faculties integral to the basic healthy human condition.

It is this basic, healthy human condition they seek to subvert and recondition; to use their man-made machinations to punish undesirable behaviors and reward desirable behaviors, to change the very form and function of the human body to their own ends.

Consider this question contained in a 1952 CIA MKULTRA memo: “Can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will and even against fundamental laws of nature, such as self preservation?

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” — Romans 3:10

They believe they can engineer this utopia in a material sense; through eugenics, by inculcating the moral code of their choice; enlightened Luciferianism, and by reducing the number of people on the planet to a manageable 500,000,000 as opposed to the rudderless 9 billion at present time.

Yet, what follows could be even more disastrous; malevolent editing of the genes. Insertion of visual images directly into the brain. Use of drugs to dampen and neutralize emotional responses to sidetrack and take away impulses that are considered “anti-social”, popularize and then mass-introduce trans-human technology to regulate, track, and control the human biology, life and death in their control, all for the “greater good” of the species.

Human ecology is inclined towards the individual.

Give one inch of ground to a social utopia and moves for greater and greater centralized tyranny will follow; uni-polar world order has never, and will never work.

The forces within human ecology mostly move towards the individual and group interests, not outwardly towards the wider “spiritual” collective, although every population is multivariate. This makes any pursuit for absolute order impossible. Humans are fractious and tribal by nature, to assume otherwise is misguided.

“Moreover, the LORD will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other end of the earth; and there you shall serve other gods, wood and stone, which you or your fathers have not known.” — Deuteronomy 28:64

The Georgia Guidestones outline this utopian vision:

  1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
  2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
  3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
  4. Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
  5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
  6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
  7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
  8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
  9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
  10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

To transition into this world order they must actively exploit the flaws of humans.

Because, as aforementioned, dealing with the masses in a reasonable manner is futile, they must use engineered liberalism and other occult stratagems to weaken manifestations of consensual order, to replace one order with another.

They know that mankind is inconsistent, any perceived “order” is, in reality, fleeting and malleable, just as is the human condition.

To study the machinations of man himself, is to understand how the world truly works, the Masons have studied man and the occult sciences exhaustively, their very logo represents base consciousness (the square), and its manipulation and expansion, (the compass). This explains why their Hegelian dialectic, ‘Order out of chaos; stratagem is widely used, to use to fear as a tool to bring about a desired end result, this is also known as the “organization of disorder”.

“One man is equivalent to all Creation. One man is a World in miniature.” — Albert Pike, Freemason

“Political freedom is an idea but not a fact. This idea one must know how to apply whenever it appears necessary with this bait of an idea to attract the masses of the people to one’s party for the purpose of crushing another who is in authority. This task is rendered easier if the opponent has himself been infected with the idea of freedom, so-called liberalism, and, for the sake of an idea, is willing to yield some of his power. It is precisely here that the triumph of our theory appears: the slackened reins of government are immediately, by the law of life, caught up and gathered together by a new hand, because the blind might of the nation cannot for one single day exist without guidance, and the new authority merely fits into the place of the old already weakened by liberalism.”
The Protocols of the Elders of Zion

The new Solomon’s temple and the return of Babylon.

Babylon and Solomon’s temple are the prime symbols of the temporal, Satanic power of Freemasonic enlightenment, of the light bringer, Lucifer.

Freemasonry is the Satanic, materialistic ideology of a material Kingdom of Heaven, not under Biblical faith, but under Satanic ideals; it is carnal Israel.

“The city of David” (Zion) is the subjective consciousness of the individual.

It makes sense then, that under the guise of oppressed Jews, the synagogue of Satan Globalists are forging a middle-eastern Greater Israel state to seat their Masonic vision, that of Solomon of Israel.

Hiram Abiff, King David, and the Temple of Solomon.

With the assistance of master Mason and architect, Hiram Abiff, Solomon’s Temple began to take form in theory, and with the assistance of Hiram I, the materials required for the construction of the Temple began to amass, joining those already gathered by King David, Solomon’s father, who was the original visionary of the Temple.

Another interpretation of I Kings 8:1-11, the dedication of the Temple by Solomon, is given as follows:

A “tent” or tabernacle represents a transitory or perishable body built by man before he has brought forth his inherent spiritual faculties sufficiently to enable him to demonstrate eternal life. The “house of Jehovah” is the abiding, spiritualized body of man, the temple of God. This temple is the result of man’s bringing forth all his spiritual powers; when man abides in it he can say with Jesus Christ (Yahshua), “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father.”

 

The Star of David, King David was the father of Solomon. David was the original visionary of the Temple.

Stone cutters quarried the blocks of stone that were its basic material, artisans from every building craft gathered to the site, and as the Temple was raised, the entire project was directed by the great architect, Hiram Abiff, who was sent to Solomon by Hiram I as part of his contribution to the skilled labor and materials pool.

Solomon aligned himself with King Hiram I, of Tyre, for many projects to public service, but perhaps the most famous and well known of these collaborative projects is the erection of a Temple in Jerusalem meant to house the relic The Ark of the Covenant.

Masons and what they represent.

A Freemason is someone who builds using raw materials, including stone and rock, which represents the material Earth as opposed to the immaterial spirit.

The Ark of the Covenant is the sum total of man’s conscious understanding of Truth, combined with faith affirmations and loyalty within and without to the principles of Truth. This covenant was written on tablets of stone, showing that the spiritual law is expressed not only in mind but in body also.

Stone has an allegorical meaning, taking elements of the Earth and fashioning them to a higher form or structure, otherwise known as occult magick.

Not all practicing masons were the same type of mason. Among the dozens of specialties there were what are called “rough” masons – those who constructed basic structures, foundations, and walls, and then there were “Freestone” masons – men who took stone and rock and transformed it into what we can easily call pieces of art – columns, arches, that sort of thing, often combining stone and metals. This required incredible skill, technique, and an aptitude for measurements and symmetry. Thus, it is said that the architecture and measurements of Solomon’s Temple held the truths to many mysteries.

This Freestone Masonry was a guarded secret among practitioners of the craft – even among other masons. It was not uncommon to find in the temporary “town” set up next to a building site a private conclave – or lodge – just for the Freestone Masons, where they lived together, ate together, and socialized.

They are known to have used a system of codes to record their designs and techniques, signals and handshakes to identify themselves to a fellow practitioner, and they tended to live and work together as a community.

The death of Hiram Abiff.

When the Temple was nearing completion, three masons sought out Hiram Abiff with it in mind to force him to reveal the secrets of the Temple to them.  When he refused, they killed him and hid his body.  King Solomon dispatched search parties when Hiram Abiff was missed, with the goal being to find him, and if necessary, recover the secret that he died to protect.  Whether or not King Solomon was privy to that secret is a mater of speculation.

Freemasonry has elevated Hiram Abiff to the position of first Master Mason, and that is how Hiram Abiff connects to Freemasonry.  King Hiram I sent Hiram Abiff to King Solomon to help him to construct the first Temple of Jerusalem, and that is how Hiram Abiff connects to both Kings. King Solomon is thought to have considered Hiram Abiff to be a genius, a master craftsman, and a friend, and placed him in a position of great authority and creativity in the construction of a Temple that was largely designed and built by stone masons.

The body represents the Temple.

To understand the measurements and mysteries of the Temple, is, according to Freemasonry, to understand the mystery of life.

“Know ye not that ye are the Temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” — 1 Corinthians 3:16 

(1). The Holy Place represents a believer’s new heart (kardia) (2). The Porch (including the pillars) is analogous to a believer’s new supernatural willpower or volition (dianoia) (3). The secret, hidden, wooden chambers around the main sanctuary, you probably already guessed, represent the hidden part of a believer’s soul which is called in the Hebrew ‘cheder’ (6). This is the place in our soul where we bury and store our hurts, doubts and fears, etc. (if we don’t know how to deal with them or don’t want to deal with them), thinking because they are hidden, “no one will see and no one will know.” We will spend the next couple of months further investigating this area. The Inner Court represents the conscious part of a man’s soul (psyche) (4) and the Outer Court represents a believer’s body (soma) (5), which is the vehicle by which we express our life (soul). Together, our soul and body are known as the “flesh.”

The Temple represents the human body, the Temple of God/YHWH, the covenant in the temple is the covenant of YHWH in the body of he who follows, and is yoked to, YHWH.
