The Esoteric Hoodwink - Isis and Osiris
The definition of the word Hookwink has changed over the past centuries at least in comparing Masonic terminology to modern dictionary definitions. The candidate above is ready for initiation to the First Degree of Freemasonry. He is prepared exactly like a condemned medieval heretic on his way to the Gallows.
If you have made it this far into this website but you are still in denial of the Freemasonry/Occult religion connection then you have truly been hoodwinked not only in the original Masonic term definition but in the modern day definition as well. The legend of Hiram Abiff and the great architect of the universe Jahbulon have nothing to do with Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
Yes, Pro-Masonic web sites spend much time and effort downplaying Freemasonry as a 'religion' refusing to believe that Freemasonry is, in fact, a religion. The most reputable and devoted Masonic writers, as well as a large number of Christian denominations, so clearly and repeatedly declared, that Freemasonry is, in fact, a religion.
These Masonic web pages are authored by unsaved people whom have not repented of their sins and do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. They hope to convince the marginal, lukewarm Christian who has been 'hoodwinked' into this cult, to remain hoodwinked and refuse to accept that they have, in fact, fallen victim to a religious cult.
Albert Pike Clearly Declared that Freemasons are Hoodwinked to the Highest Degree
And led astray when he said in Morals and Dogma and other writings, now lets compare Masonic terminology to modern dictionary definitions. Masonry, like all the religions, all Mysteries, Hermetic-ism, and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of it's symbols to mislead those who deserve to be mislead; to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light, from them, and to draw them away from it.
Truth is not for those who are unworthy or unable to receive it, or would pervert it. So God Himself incapacitates many men, by color-blindness, to distinguish colors, and leads the masses away from the highest Truth, giving them the power to attain only so much of it as it is profitable to them to know. Every age has had a religion suited to its capacity. The Teachers, even of Christianity, are, in general, the most ignorant of the true meaning of that which they teach.
Pike Said That There is No Book of Which so Little is Known as the Bible
To most who read it, it is as incomprehensible as the Sohar. So Masonry jealously conceals its secrets, and intentionally leads conceited interpreters astray. Sohar is “the completest embodiment's of Occultism.” All truly dogmatic religions have issued from the Kabbalah and return to it: everything scientific and grand in the religious dreams of all the Illuminati is borrowed from the Kabbalah; all the Masonic associations owe to it their Secrets and their Symbols.
Masonry, around whose alters the Christian, the Hebrew, the Moslem, the Brahman, the followers of Confucius and Zoroaster, can assemble as brethren and unite in prayer to the one God who is above all the Baalim, the first Masonic Legislator whose memory is preserved to us by history, was Buddha. Every Masonic Lodge is a Temple of religion; and its teachings are instructions in religion. We have therefore, in the 24th degree (Masonic Ritual), recited the principal incidents in the legend of Osiris and Isis.
Everything Good in Nature Comes from Osiris. Osiris was the Image of Generative Power
This was expressed by his symbolic statues, Osiris and Isis were the Sun and Moon and is the All-Seeing Eye in our Lodges. Osiris was invoked as the God that resides in the Sun. The Supreme being of the Egyptians was Amun, a secret and concealed God, the Unknown Father of the Gnostic's, the Source of Divine Life, and of all force, the Plenitude of all, comprehending all things in Himself, the original Light.
He creates nothing, but everything emanates from Him and all other Gods are but his manifestations. From Him, by the utterance of a Word, emanated Neith, the Divine Mother of all things, the Primitive thought, the force, that puts everything in movement, the spirit everywhere extended, the Deity of Light and Mother of the Sun.
Of the Supreme Beings, Osiris was the Image, Source of All Good in the Moral and Physical World
And a constant foe of Typhone, the Genius of Evil, the Satan of Gnosticism, brute matter, deemed to be always at feud with the spirit that flowed from the Deity; and over whom Har-Oeri, the Redeemer, Son of Isis and Osiris, is finally to prevail." Albert Mackey said in Mackey’s Revised Encyclopedia of Freemasonry: It (Freemasonry) reverences all the great reformers.
It sees Moses, the Lawgiver of the Jews, in Confucius and Zoroaster, in Jesus of Nazareth, and in the Arabian Iconoclast, Great teachers of Morality, and Eminent reformers, if no more. On the contrary, we contend, without any sort of hesitation, that Freemasonry is, in every sense of the word except one, and that its least philosophical, an eminently religious institution, that it is indebted solely to the religious element it contains for its origin as well as its continued existence.
The Tendency of All Freemasonry is Toward Religion
If it makes any progress, its progress is toward that holy end. Look at its ancient landmarks, its sublime ceremonies, its profound symbols and allegories, all inculcating religious doctrine, commanding religious observance, and teaching religious truth, and who can deny that it is eminently a religious Institution. We open and close our Lodges with prayer; we invoke the presence of the Most High upon all our labors. We demand of our neophytes a profession of trusting belief in the existence and the superintending care of God; and we teach them to bow with humility and reverence at His awful name while His holy Law is widely opened upon our altars.
From all this we can see that the altar in Freemasonry is not merely a convenient article of furniture, intended like a table, to hold a Bible. It is a sacred utensil of religion, intended, like the altars of the ancient temples, for religious uses, and thus identifying Freemasonry, by its necessary existence in our lodges, as a religious institution. Its presence should also lead the contemplative Freemason to view the ceremonies in which it is employed with solemn reverence, as being part of a really religious worship.
Be Assured, that God is Equally Present with the Pious Hindu in the Temple
The Jew in the synagogue, the Mohammedan in the mosque, and the Christian in the church” (Albert Mackey). After Christianity became dominant in Egypt the cult of Hermes became an important underground transmitter of pagan traditions, and the alleged writings of Hermes Trismegistus, the Hermetical, became highly treasured in occult circles. During this time the Giza Necropolis became increasingly referred to as the Tomb of Hermes, replacing the classical designation of the monument as the Tomb of Osiris.
The Hermetic teachings were eventually repressed by the Roman Church, along with the "Luciferian Christian" teachings of the Gnostic's, until they reappeared in the West near the end of the life of Cosimo de Medici (1389-1464) the ruler of the Republic of Florence. In fact, as Frances Yates explains, Cosimo had access to the works of Plato and of "Hermes," but he chose to have the Hermetic works translated first so that he could read them before he died.
The Appearance of the Neo-Pagan Mystical Hermetic Writings
As well as the increasing popularity of the Kabbalah as a reputed form of "Christian magic," led to the re-emergence of occult beliefs and practices during the Renaissance. Magicians such as Giordano Bruno, Cornelius Agrippa, Albertus Magnus, Tommaso Campanella, Paracelsus, Nostradamus, and many others lived and worked in an underground occult network, often on the run from a Church that was rarely hesitant to burn heretics at the stake.
This network became closely associated with the Rosicrucian's, which appeared in the early 1600s, as well as with the Freemasons, that became public as an esoteric order in Britain in the early 1700s. Britain was also a haven for legendary occult figures like John Dee and Francis Bacon, the former being the inspiration for magical orders such as the Golden Dawn and the OTO, and the latter viewed as a father-figure of Rosicrucians and Freemasons.
The Origins of the Freemasons Can be Traced Back to the Knights Templar
who, as scholars have shown, held to Gnostic beliefs associated with the Cathars, a sect brutally suppressed by the Church in a series of genocidal Crusades in the thirteenth century. The Gnostic's, it must be remembered, practiced a strange form of Luciferian Christianity, in which the God of the Old Testament was reviled as evil and Jesus Christ was viewed as a manifestation of the serpent of wisdom from the Garden of Eden.
The Gnostic's viewed the heroes of the Old Testament as wicked, and in turn they glorified the enemies of God in the Old Testament as heroes. From this perspective the first human hero after the Fall was Cain, and the first hero after the Flood was Nimrod. This Gnostic perspective can be seen very clearly in one of the earliest Masonic manuscripts known as the Dowland MS. It dates to approximately 1500 and it tells the story of the beginning of Freemasonry as an institution allegedly dedicated to truth and brotherhood among men.
The Gnostic Influence on this Early Masonic Manuscript is Apparent in its Glorification
Of the descendants of Cain who, according to the book of Enoch and other extra-Biblical Hebrew accounts, were influenced directly by the fallen angels. The appearance of Hermes as a historical figure is noteworthy, along with his positive portrayal, as well as the designation of Nimrod as one of the first Masons.
The tale also implies that the God of the Bible is evil by presenting "knowledge" and "science" as something that had to be protected from God and as something that was resurrected by Hermes, an UN-biblical pagan figure, and then used by Nimrod, the king who rebelled against God. The Masonic understanding of Hermes must be understood because he appears as a major figure in the messages that came from a modern Gnostic and high-level Freemasonry.
