To understand the occult elements and their secret societies in the fabric of American and international politics we first need to understand what is “Kabbalah”. Kabbalah is a Hebrew word that means “received.” What “is received” is nothing less than the metaphysical and spiritual teachings practiced and handed down by the schools of the Biblical prophets. In order for one to become a prophet one had to have prophetic training. They had to learn how to meditate,
how to experience spiritual reality and how to discern between good and evil. Eventually the aspiring prophet would merit to experience the presence of G-d. These spiritual disciplines have never been lost, but passed down generation to generation to select individuals, who find this their calling. These teachings were passed down almost exclusively by word of mouth for twelve hundred years since the destruction of the holy Temple in Jerusalem in 68 C.E. After this time, the Kabbalists teach, permission was granted by Heaven to put many of the ancient teachings into writing. And that is when problems began.
Since the public dissemination of Kabbalah in Jewish circles in medieval Spain, The Kabbalah also went outside of Jewish circles. Kabbalistic manuscripts of all kinds were copied by non-Jews, mostly Catholics, and translated into European languages and Latin. Today, the Vatican library houses one of the greatest collections of Kabbalistic texts in the entire world. For proof of this, one need simply check the bibliographies of any modern scholarly Kabbalistic work for the source of its references. Even with access to these manuscripts, Christian transcribers of Kabbalah, many times were not experts in Hebrew and, therefore, made many mistakes in their translations. Another problem that arose was the obvious Christian bias to reinterpret Kabbalah in the light of Christian doctrine.
From this perversion of the ancient wisdom came another form of Kabbalah, one which today is spelled with a “C” i.e., Cabbala. This Christian school of Cabbala also incorporated many ideas, doctrines and teachings that were not of Jewish origins.Its teachings were also adopted and integrated into the European schools of occult and magic. Thus there developed another corruption of true Kabbalah called the “Qabbala” with a “Q” used by practitioners of the occult. It is this last form of Qabbala that is most popularly known around the world. This form of “Q”abbala includes aspects of Egyptian and Greek mystery school teachings. In fact, this perversion of Kabbalah contains many false teaching and ideas that are the opposite of the truth of “Kabbalah”. This is why people think Kabbalah related to the dark occult arts and evil origins. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The true and holy Kabbalah, ordained and given by G-d, has been preserved, treasured and safeguarded. Authentic Kabbalah, handed down by the Biblical prophets, contains great concepts of social justice, morality and human rights. These teachings have had a tremendous influence on the development of post Renaissance western philosophy and society in general.
Many mystical groups arose in renaissance Europe. Many of these groups were political in nature. Many of them also claimed that they were Kabbalistic secret societies. As secret societies, these groups would use clandestine means to achieve whatever political
agenda their spiritual beliefs led them to pursue. Indeed according to Webster’s Dictionary, the word “cabal”, means a group of conspirators is said to come from the Hebrew word Cabbala. So we can see why in the eyes of many, Kabbalah and covert political action go hand in hand. While in truth the true Kabbalah has nothing to do with political agendas, The Kabbalists Jews were not even allowed in these groups. This one group has played a key role in the development of western civilization. Their vision of social justice and human rights (which they borrowed from the Cabbalah) has served as the foundation of western democracy since the 18th century. The group to which I refer is the fraternal order of Freemasons. The historical origins of the Masons is shrouded in mystery. Masonic legend claims their origins go back to the Temple of King Solomon. While this cannot be confirmed or denied, one thing is certain: the Masons carry with them a large body of “C”abbalistic knowledge. No stranger to politics, the Masons have had a monumental influence upon the establishment of the United States of America. Thus there is an actual role that the Kabbalah has played in the founding of the United States. A number of the founding fathers of the United States were Masons. It was from the St. Andrews Masonic Lodge in Boston that a group of Masons, who were fed up with British injustice regarding unfair taxation, dressed up as Indians and went to Boston harbor to protest. The famous Boston Tea Party was a Masonic event. Another Mason was Paul Revere who set out on his historic ride, crying, “the British are coming”. Thirteen of the revolutionary war generals were Masons, including General George Washington.
In fact, Washington took his second oath of office as President of the United States dressed in full Masonic regalia. A painting of Washington in this outfit still hangs today in the Library of Congress. Thomas Jefferson was a Mason, so was John Adams, John Hancock, and according to some sources, so were the vast majority of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Benjamin Franklin was not only a Mason, he was a Grandmaster Mason in charge of lodges both in the colonies as well as in France. It must be remembered that usually Masonic membership is secret we cannot know of everyone who was involved. Today, in America the Masons are know for their charitable services. They have chapters in every city and most towns, small and large. Their numbers, in America alone are in the millions. Only a few know of the Cabbalistic side of their order’s origins.
The Masons and Kabbalah
Steeped heavily in tradition and ritual, Masonic rites are a mystery to all, except those who have been initiated into them. The Masons themselves say that their symbolisms are derived from the Kabbalah. Masonic Cabbala is Christian in origin. The Southern Baptists Catholic church and fundamentalist Christians claim that their teachings are occultic and demonic and that their order is “in league with the devil.” Masonry is a Christian movement. Why is the church so opposed to the Masons? It is strange that in all Masonic rituals and prayers there is never mentioned the name of Jesus Christ. This completely unheard of in any Christian order. Thomas Jefferson was a Mason he actually rewrote the Gospels of the Christian Bible leaving out certain aspects of the life of Jesus and simply leaving in the moralistic code that all scholars agree Jesus took from the Talmudic Rabbis. Thomas Jefferson was a signer of the
Declaration of Independence and served as the third President of the United States. I am speaking about, the man who designed and wrote the Declaration of Independence, and thus authored the philosophical foundation of the United States.
It seems the the Masons were trying to build a Holy nation based on the biblical system of values the God had set forth for all the nations of the world preserved in the Oral traditions of the Jewish Rabbis. This system being called “ TheNoachites Laws” According to the authoritative work, “The History of Freemasonry”2 by Albert Mackey, Masonic writers as early as 1723 have specifically written about Noachites laws. On page 410 of this most revealing book, Mackey quotes the following from an old Masonic work entitled: “The Laws or Obligations laid before his Brother Masons by Prince Edwin” (the Krause MS.): “The first obligation is that you shall sincerely honor G-d and obey the laws of the Noachites, because they are divine laws, which should be obeyed by all the world.” Mackey comments (page 411) as follows: ”The meaning is that the only righteous laws which a Freemason is required to obey are those contained in the code that has been attributed to Noah. Masonic interest in the laws of the Noahide also explain why the Church would be so vehemently opposed to them. After all,the first Noahide law forbids idolatry. Any prayer other than to G-d the Father is considered to be idolatry. Indeed, recently the seven principles were given formal recognition by the United States Congress. The United States government, in a formal proclamation of Congress, has declared the seven universal principles to be the “bedrock of society from the dawn of civilization.”3 This proclamation was signed by President George Bush on March 20th, 1991.
Yet the Masons did not limit their influence to simple words or concepts. The very seals drawn to represent the United States, which are found on the back side of a United States $1.00
bill are full of Masonic symbolism based upon their understanding of the Kabbalah. A review of these symbols will clearly prove this to be the case.
