Since I found the teachings of Hermes in the Old Testament, I knew the translators placed it in the New Testament as well. I asked myself, where could it be? I thought which one of the books in the New Testament is closest to the Jewish religion. Then it clicked. Another name for Jew is Hebrew. It more than likely was in the book of Hebrews. To my surprise, I think I hit the lottery. Let me show you what I found.
My favorite ancient art and science is Numerology (arithmetic). Subsequently, I started counting the letters of specific words. For instance, the word Hebrew is the number 34 or 7. Additionally Hebrews equals 35 or 8. The number 8 is the same number as God (17 or 8). The symbol for infinite is a sideways number 8. It’s been said numbers don’t lie.
In the book of Hebrews, it speaks of the priesthood. Priesthood equals 57 or 13. The number 13 is a mystical number (12 disciples plus Jesus equals 13; 12 tribes of Israel plus the daughter equals 13; the 12 tribes of Ismael plus the daughter equals 13). The book of Hebrews also speaks of Jesus being a high priest after the order of Melchizedek. The word high is 32 or 5. The word priest is the master number 33 (6). Therefore, the word high priest added together is the number 11. In numerology the master numbers are 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, and 99. “Master numbers possess more potential than other numbers. They are highly charged, difficult to handle and require time, maturity and great effort to integrate into one’s personality.” Many numerologists don’t go beyond the master number 33. Regardless, master numbers are used throughout the bible as we will see.
Jesus is the master number 11. Before the age of 30, Jesus was the Christ. The number 30 shows that he went through 3 stages. The 3 stages are youth, adulthood, and old age. Each stage is entered at different ages, but in this case the translators of the bible are using symbolism. In numerology, the numbers typically range from 1-9 except for the master numbers. When the number 10 is reached, it is reduced to the number 1 meaning a new stage is beginning.
The title Christ was given to Jesus because it’s symbolic of him becoming a master or in this case beginning his journey in the priesthood. The beginning of his journey was symbolized by his baptism. The word Christ equals 5. Numerologists claim the number 5 touches all numbers in the 1-9 sequence. So Jesus (11/2) Christ (5) equals 7. Therefore, Jesus went through ceremonies to gain higher degrees of knowledge. Remember from my earlier writings, the Kybalion has 7 laws.
Let me explain something before we start examining the priesthoods. There are several different orders in the occults. The word “order” is not always referring to sequence. For example the Freemasonic Order is a group men who go through different degrees to get higher knowledge. One of paths in Freemasonry is the Scottish Rites. In this order, the highest degree is 33rd (a master number). The first three degrees are taken from the Old Testament, which was translated from the Hebrew language. This is no coincidence.
There are three priesthoods or orders spoken of in Hebrews 7:11, which states, “If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchizedek, and not be called after the order of Aaron.” Again, the three priesthoods or orders are the Levitical priesthood, order of Aaron, and the order of Melchizedek. The word “Levitical” equals 39 or 12. Levi is one of the 12 tribes of Israel. They were given the law. We are led to believe the laws were the 10 commandments, but there are 613 Hebraic laws both equaling the number 1 (1+0=1; 6+1+3=10/1). The number 1, in this case, represents the first step within the priesthood.
The name Aaron has a numerical value of 22. In addition, the name Melchizedek has a numerical value of 56 or 11. The orders of Aaron and Melchizedek added together is 33. Both individuals are also first recognized as priest in the Old Testament (side note: Jesus was crucified at the age of 33 as well). The importance of Aaron was veiled by the character of Moses.
God made Aaron a priest in the book of Exodus. Exodus numerical value is 25 or 7. Hebrews speaks of the order of Aaron in verse 7:11 (8+7+1+1= 17 and 1+7=8). The year 711 is when the Moors first conquered Europe. My position remains that the Moors gave the Europeans higher forms of knowledge where they created the university system.
Again, Jesus journeyed through the degrees of knowledge in the order of Aaron. This is made clear by the statement “what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchizedek, and not be called after the order of Aaron?” In other words an initiate must first go through the order (teachings) of Aaron, before entering the order of Melchizedek.
Further, we first encounter Melchizedek in Genesis 14:18, “And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God” (refer to African Origin found in Religion and Freemasonry: Part II for the discussion of bread and wine). Genesis (33) 14:18 (32) becomes 33+32= 65 or 11. Jesus became a priest in the order of Melchizedek in Hebrews 7:17, “For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.” Again we will do the math of Hebrews 7:17, 8+7+1+7= 23 or 5. Jesus’ membership in the order of Melchizedek is solidified in Hebrews 7: 21, “For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.” Since Jesus was not from the tribe of Levi, he had to take an oath (refer to Jesus’ Initiation). The numbers of Hebrews 7: 21 are 8+7+2+1= 18 or 9. Jesus is known as a high priest in Hebrews 4:14, which is the number 9. This is not a coincidence.
Once again the reality is the translators of the Holy Bible systematically utilized the teachings of Hermes (Tehuti), veiling it with metaphors, symbolism, and allegorical words and numbers. There is no way on God’s earth that this is a coincidence. The numbers just don’t lie.
