  Jah-Bul-On, The pagan god of Freemasonry Written by Ed DeckerWednesday, 06 October 2010 22:36 - Jah-Bul-On (or Jah-Bel-On):   The god of Freemasonry      Ed Decker  About the supposed name of God that is found in the Royal Arch Degree of the York Rite, wefind this on page 161 of the ritual published and printed by 'The Grand Chapter Of TennesseeRoyal Arch Masons': In the same manner we find on the three sides of the T on the top of theA the words J - - B - - O - -. Each is the name of Deity: J - - in theSyriac; B - - inthe Chaldaic and O - - in the Egyptian languages, and, as has already been explained, when given as one word formthe G. R. A. W. Henry Wilson Coil has this to say: Jah, Bel and On appear in the American ritual of the RoyalArch degree on the supposition that Jah was the Syriac name of God, Bel (Baal) the Chaldeanand On, the Egyptian. But the last name seems to havebeen due to a mistake of the ritualist, for it was actually the name of a city, the error havingarisen from the Biblical story that Pharaoh gave Joseph, for a wife, Asenath, who was thedaughter of Potepherah, priest of On, meaning priest of the city of On, not the god On.  ('Coil's Masonic Encyclopedia', p. 516)  1 / 10  Jah-Bul-On, The pagan god of Freemasonry Written by Ed DeckerWednesday, 06 October 2010 22:36 - Jah is a commonly accepted abbreviation for the Hebrew name of our True and Living God,Lord God Jehovah. Had the Royal Arch degree ritualists been content solely with this name, itwould have shown at least an indication that York Rite Masonry is indeed serious about itscontention that its focus is on the True and Living God of the Bible. However, with the interjection of the Lost Word as being Jah-Bul-On , York Rite Masonry, in its Royal Arch Degree, is simply re-affirming all of Masonry's polytheisticnature, York Rite Masonry included. The name, Baal , is relatively easy to trace. Judges 2:11-13: And the children of Israel did evilin the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim: And they forsook the LORD God of their fathers,which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the peoplethat were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the LORD toanger. And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth.  In his commentary on Judges 2:13, Charles C. Ryrie has this to say: Baal. The rain andfertility god of the Canaanites.  In the plural, Baals may include all the false deities of the land, . .  Commencing with 1 Kings 18:17, we find the encounter between Elijah and the prophets of Baalon Mt. Carmel, thus establishing a battle between Lord God Jehovah, through His prophet,  2 / 10  Jah-Bul-On, The pagan god of Freemasonry Written by Ed DeckerWednesday, 06 October 2010 22:36 - Elijah, and the false deity, Baal, through its prophets. In 'Mackey's Revised Encyclopedia of Freemasonry', vol. 1, p. 114, Mr. Mackey makes adefinite division between Baal - which, according to him, means Lord or Master in Hebrew -and Lord God Jehovah: Whenever the Israelites made one of their almost periodicaldeflections to idolatry, Baal seems to have been the favorite idol to whose worship theyaddicted themselves. Hence he became the especial object ofdenunciation with the prophets. Thus, in FirstKings (xviii), we see Elijah showing, by practical demonstration, the difference between Baaland Jehovah. The idolaters, at his instigation, called on Baal, as their sun-god, to light the sacrificial fire, frommorning until noon, because at noon he had acquired his greatest intensity. After noon, no firehaving been kindled on the altar, they began to cry aloud, and to cut themselves in token ofmortification, because as the sun descended there was no hope of his help. But Elijah, depending on Jehovah, made his sacrifice toward sunset, to show the greatestcontrast between Baal and the true God. When the people saw the fire come down and consume the offering, they acknowledged theweakness of their idol, and falling on their faces cried out, 'Jehovah hu hahelohim', meaning'Jehovah, He is the God'. . . Hence we see that there was an evident antagonism in the orthodox Hebrew mind betweenJehovah and Baal. The latter was, however, worshiped by the Jews whenever they becameheterodox, and by all the Oriental or Shemitic nations as a supreme divinity, representing thesun in some of his modifications as the ruler of the day. In Tyre, Baal wasthe sun, and Ashtaroth, the moon.  3 / 10  Jah-Bul-On, The pagan god of Freemasonry Written by Ed DeckerWednesday, 06 October 2010 22:36 - Baal-peor, the lord of priapism, was the sun represented as the generative principle of nature,and identical with the phallus of other religions. Baal-gad was the lord of the multitude (of stars) that is, the sun as the chief of the heavenlyhost. In brief, Baal seems to have been wherever his cultus was active, a development of the old sunworship.  One only has to look at Mr. Mackey's honest determination of exactly who Baal is, coupled withwhat we have been told in Judges 2:11-13, to come to the only sensible conclusion: that anyeffort to claim Lord God Jehovah and Baal to be one in the same, is blasphemous. The term, On , requires a little more research. In Genesis 41:45, we find this: Then Pharaohnamed Joseph Zaphenath-paneah; and he gave him Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priestof On, as his wife. And Joseph went forth over the land of Egypt.  Ryrie's commentary on this verse tells us more about the purpose of this matrimonialarrangement : In order to 'Egyptianize' Joseph, Pharaoh gave him an Egyptian name and anEgyptian wife. The meaning of his Egyptian name is uncertain. Asenathmeans 'she belongs to Neith' (a goddess of the Egyptians). On is the city of Heliopolis, a center for the worship of the sun god, Ra.   4 / 10
