Earlier we showed how Sir Frances Bacon (William Shakespeare) was responsible for many of the modern day practices including the translation of the King James Version of the Christian Bible and Freemasonry. Since we have come to the conclusion of his involvement in both, it would be logical that his tactics, systems, and practices reside in both. To overstand the position we are presenting in this section, we have to incorporate one of the teachings of Dr. York. This will prove to be a crucial element.
In freemasonry there are three initial steps before a person is considered a freemason. We use the word person instead of man because of the institution of Co-Masonry (Female and Male) order. These three steps are EA, FC, and MM degrees. During this process the person takes oaths that are systematically related to the purpose of each degree. After the ceremonial rituals, the person is shown how to test other people to see if they are freemasons. The whole process is mentally taxing but well worth the experience at the end.
Let’s now venture further into the story of Jesus. Jesus is considered a High Priest after the Order of Melchizedek [Heb. 6:5 (11)]. The word order in the Greek language has many definitions. In this case the word is “taxis” which is a fixed succession (of rank or character), official dignity- order. In other words, this is similar to what we know as membership into a fraternity. In the book of Hebrews the fraternity is the three different priesthoods. This is demonstrated in Hebrews 7:11 (711 AD is when the Moors conquered Europe), when it speaks of the Levitical priesthood, the Order of Aaron, and the Order of Melchizedek.
According to Deuteronomy 31:9 (13), the sons of Levi were chosen to be the priests from the lineage of Israel. They were commanded to protect and put the laws written by Moses in the Ark of the Covenant [Deut. 31:25 (56/11). Overstanding this, we have to question Jesus’ membership in the priesthoods. He was from the tribe of Judah. His lineage made him ineligible for the priesthood [Heb. 7:13 (11)].
For some reason, an exception was made for Jesus to join the priesthoods. Jesus had to take an oath to be allowed into the priesthood, which is not a requirement for the priest chosen from the tribe of Levi [Heb. 7:21 (28)]. The question is where in the bible is there an oath. First remember the Levites were responsible for protecting and teaching the laws. This brings us to Matthew 5:17-18 “17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” An oath to uphold the laws seems to be a part of the oath Jesus has to honor.
This is definitely not what modern day Christians believe. They feel that the death of Jesus allows them to forgo the laws, which is not what Jesus taught. Again, it was well known that the tribe of Judah was not chosen for priesthood. This brings us to one of the teachings of Dr. York. Dr. York critically analyzed and questioned the betrayal of Jesus by Judas. Dr. York explained that Judas did not think he was wrong for turning Jesus over to the authorities. Wait do you see it? Judas and Judah/Juda are the same names. Judas was a member of the tribe of Judah. In the traditions of Israel, the tribe of Judah was not priest. Judas had no clue that Jesus was permitted in the priesthood (we will discuss this further). Subsequently some of the Levitical priest did not know of Jesus entrance into their priesthood. This caused much confusion.
The Levitical priesthood was similar to the EA of Freemasonry. In other words, it seems to be the first in the succession to the higher priesthoods. After the Levitical priesthood is the Order of Aaron. Then comes the highest order, the Order of Melchizedek.
All those who were accepted in the Levitical priesthood and even the Order of Aaron did not necessarily mean they became High Priest in the Order of Melchizedek. Unless one was invited into the Order of Melchizedek, they were not privy to the knowledge of the higher order.
How do we know there was a higher order? Again we can read it in Hebrews 7:11. In Hebrews 7:12 (10) [remember when the number 10 is reached it is the completion of 1-9 beginning a new level starting again with the number 1], it explains as the priesthood changes, so does the laws. This occurs in freemasonry as well. In each degree not only does the doctrine change, but the laws change. This takes us to Hebrews 6:1 (7). It states that, “Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God.” Hebrews 6:2 (8 which is a number representing God or perfection) continues, “2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.” According to this, the Christ doctrine has a place in the priesthood procedures.
Entering the highest Order of Melchizedek becomes quite interesting. In fact, the Order of Melchizedek was added into the Royal Arch degrees of Freemasonry. According to Hebrews 7:3 (10), “3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.” Once a priest get to this point s/he has the ability to subdued (control) her/his passion and selfishness (this will be examined later). From this point life is eternal.
Knowing this, we are forced to reconsider the entire story of Jesus. We will put his character to the test. This in no way says that he is of no importance, but we are challenging the current interpretation his story.
