Hidden Hand of the Men of Jahbuhlun

Because the higher trinity of man's being must be present before soul-union can take place...the Omnific Royal Arch Word can only be given in groups of three... Their right hands are then raised above their heads or they give at low breath the word: Jah-buh-lun, Je-ho-vah, G-O-D.
—C.C. Zain
Ancient Masonry

The greatest, but the most terrible moment in the life of a Mason...The three supreme officials of the Lodge, with three separate keys, unlock the wooden box with the "Secret of Secrets" and give him to read a slip of paper, upon which is written the name of the "God" whose follower he was...JAH-BUL-ON.
-D.C. Yermak

The Axis of Death

Over my many years of exposing the lies and evils of Freemasonry, the Ordo Templi Orientis, the Rosicrucians, and other treacherous cultic secret societies, I have been challenged by many Masons.


Their typical complaint is,

"How dare you say such things about Masonry! Why, I'll have you know I am a Christian, and there is nothing in the Lodge or its rituals that would not be acceptable to my Christian faith."

Of course, it is super-easy, almost like taking candy from a baby, to disabuse the Masonic whiner and complainer hollering that you or I have slandered the Masons by denying their order's "Christian attributes." After all, there are scores of points to make that blow apart the silly notion that the Masonic Lodge or similar groups are even  vaguely "Christian" in nature. But the easiest way to handle such a complaint is to ask the Mason if he has reached the Royal Arch Mason ritual level or equivalent (13th degree in the Scottish Rite). If he answers "yes," then, uh oh, he is in big, big trouble.

What About Jahbuhlun?

I then ask him about the name of his sacred God revealed in the Royal Arch degree ritual; that is, I ask him about Jahbuhlun. And usually, I can hear either a long uninterrupted stutter, or else simply a great gasping sound. Generally, that ends the discussion right there. A Mason definitely does not want to publicly discuss that name, Jahbuhlun. Anything but that. Bamm! He's gone. And I can understand why.

Ed Decker, a friend of mine, who is an ex-Mason and ex-Mormon, now heads up a Christian ministry aimed at helping men get out of these cults. In a book that Ed edited, entitled, The Dark Side of Freemasonry, that the Mason is at first denied knowledge of the sacred name of their God and then belatedly finds out that the name of the Mason deity is definitely not Jesus, the name above every other name (Philippians 2:9-11).

The Lost Name of God

The Blue Lodge Masons, encompassing the first three degrees of Masonry, are instructed that they are seeking the Lost Word or the Lost Name of God... It isn't until they reach the level of Royal Arch Masonry (seventh degree, York Rite) that they discover that the Lost Name of God wasn't lost after all. It's at this level that they learn the sacred name of Masonry's God.

They find that the sacred name of (the Masonic) God is composed of three names representing the three identities of God. It is so sacred it takes three Royal Arch Masons to be able to speak it.. Jahbuhlun. The three Masons grip hands high and low and chant, "Jah-buh-lun, Jah-buh-lun, Jah-buh-lun, Je-hov-ah."


The name Jahbuhlun has three syllables representing a composite God made up of three subordinate deities. The Masonic material identifies the three as Yah (or Yahweh), Baal, and Osiris. Logically, the name should be spelled Yah-Baal-On, but Duncan's Masonic Ritual and Monitor admits that over the years the spelling has been "corrupted" by Freemasonry until it reached its current form.1

Decker correctly asserts that,

"What these men are doing is worshipping a demon God so far removed from the real God that this worship must surely defile the holiness of God and guarantee those who pronounce that name in such a ceremony a swift ride to Hell..."2

C.C Zain, a Freemason who is part of a group called "The Brotherhood of Light," is developer and author of an entire course on Ancient Masonry having to do with "The Spiritual Significance of Masonic Rituals, Degrees, and Symbols." Zain points out that the name Jahbuhlun is Masonry's Grand Omnific Word, the name of their omnipotent deity. He further shows the significance of the fact that the name Jahbuhlun has nine letters and is made up of three syllables, Jah, buh, lun. In the ritual for the Royal Arch Degree, since there are three Royal Arch Masons pronouncing the name three times each, altogether, says Zain, twenty-seven syllables are pronounced. This, he explains, represents "the twenty-seven days it takes the moon to pass through the circle of zodiacal signs."3


Interestingly, in the ritual drama, the three Masons doing the pronouncing of Jahbuhlun are said to have come from Babylon! So, we have a ritual —the 13th degree in the Scottish Rite and 7th in the York Rite—in which three "Masters" come from Babylon to instruct the candidate on how to build the Royal Arch (symbolically, how to rebuild the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem and thus establish the kingdom of the elite and their devil God on earth).

The Lost Word Found

Moreover, the three messengers from Babylon inform the candidate that the true name of God, the name that had been lost for so long, is not Jesus, but is Jahbuhlun. They conveniently omit mention of the fact that this is, in fact, the name of a monstrous DEVIL God, that the name is an unholy and blasphemous composite of Jahweh, Baal, and Osiris, or On.


(On is a city in Egypt where the worship of the sun God, Osiris, is alleged to have begun. Somehow, many in Masonry today honor and revere Osiris under the name of On, the name of his city, curiously spelled Un in the name: Jahbuhlun.)

No wonder Masonic authority W.L. Wilmshurst, in his highly thought of (by Masons) The Meaning of Masonry, proclaims this degree so vital to the transformation of the candidate's life. He even suggests that in attaining this Degree, one "exhibits the attainment of a new order of life."4

The Royal Arch Degree, Wilmshurst emphasizes, provides "a supremely high level of thought and instruction" for the Mason attaining it.5

Born Again or Demon-Possessed?

What does Wimshurst mean when he says the adept has attained a "new order of life?" I believe the candidate receives a counterfeit born again experience, receiving the very spirit of Lucifer into his bosom as a result of conforming to the requirements of this degree.


In accepting the devil God Jahbuhlun as the sacred name of God the man rising to this level in Masonry or a similar sect becomes demon possessed, full of the devil, headed for hell, prepared to do the most wicked and foul deeds possible for his hidden deity, Baphomet, aka Lucifer, aka Satan, aka Jahbuhlun.

Now, the fatal (ending in spiritual death) sign that is taught for this degree is the one you will find men giving in the photographs in this chapter. Notably, only higher-level initiates and adepts will typically be seen giving this evil sign stamping them as demon-possessed disciples of Satan. I call this sign the Hidden Hand of the Men of Jahbuhlun.

From Washington to Rothschild

Regrettably, America's first President, George Washington, exhibited this sign, if the painter of one of his most famous portraits is to be believed. Subsequent Presidents, men like Franklin Pierce and Rutherford Hayes, were disciples of Jahbuhlun, as was President Teddy Roosevelt.


We also have communists Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and Joseph Stalin giving the sign, plus Napoleon, Salomon Rothschild, and many others whose images and pictures you will find in the ensuing pages, as they perform this devilish sign.

Wine From A Human Skull

Many other facets and activities pertaining to this degree's ritual stamp it as pure Luciferian and its holder as a Lucifer worshipper. During the initiation into the seventh degree Royal Arch Mason (York Rite) or 13th degree (Scottish Rite), the candidate drinks wine from a human skull.


By this monstrous act, he reinforces the fact that he has taken an oath swearing to "have his skull struck off and his brains exposed to the scorching rays of a median sun" should he ever divulge Masonic secrets. He goes on to demand that if he does divulge secrets, may all the sins of the dead person whose skull he is drinking from be heaped upon his, the candidate's, head.6

So we see that the Mason's newfound "God," Jahbuhlun (Jah-Baal-On), is a rigid taskmaster who does not look kindly on traitors and blabbers. It was the Canaanite God Baal, of course, to whom the backslidden Jews and pagans sacrificed their children in the fire. You'll recall that the prophet Elijah brought the message of God's judgment against those who worshipped bloodthirsty Baal, who, in reality, is merely an idolatrous representation of Satan. Yes, Baal is the devil.

To attempt in vain to combine the name of the true God with that of false Gods like Baal and On is particularly evil and grievous to the true God in heaven. Yet, the Mason does exactly this with Jahbuhlun and then compounds his grave error by adopting as one of his chief logos the sign of the double-headed eagle (symbolizing one body of God, two heads!)

The Triple Tau

Yet another proof of the deviltry of the Jahbuhlun hoax is the symbol of the Triple Tau, which is the most important symbol of the Royal Arch Degree. Made up of three interlinking tau symbols (T), these three are said to represent a triad of sacred, Jewish powers of king, priest, and prophet. In other words, the Mason assumes a trinity of Jewish spiritual powers.7 Actually, this trinity of the Jews is in competition with the true Godhead of the Bible: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Triple Tau is the most significant symbol, or logo, of the Royal Arch Mason. It represents the Mason who has reached either the seventh degree of the York Rite or 13th degree of the Scottish Rite as embodying within the attributes of the Godhead, or Holy Trinity, by blasphemously declaring himself to be the great I Am That I Am, thus identifying himself with Satan's promise in the Garden, "ye shall be as Gods."



"I Am that I Am," the Mason Proclaims


Equally blasphemous is that in the lecture on the seventh, or Royal Arch Degree, of the York Rite, the Mason initiated is asked the question,

"Are you a Royal Arch Mason?"

His answer is required to be: "I am that I am."8

In other words, in this degree's ritual the Mason has not only acknowledged that the devil, in the guise of Jahbuhlun, is his sacred Lord, but he now is declaring that he, himself, a mere man, is the great I am! In other words, he is saying, "I am God!"


Uncovering the Hidden Hand

Now you see why I entitled this chapter, "The Hidden Hand of the Men of Jahbuhlun."

In the early degrees, the Mason is told that the name of God has been lost. He's even told that he should use a substitute name for God, MAHABONE. But later, after he's swallowed whole the rotten fabric of degree ritual after degree ritual, the bamboozled and propagandized fellow is finally told that the one he is to worship goes by the name Jahbuhlun and that he is now ready to declare himself, a man, as the great I AM.

Obviously, the Illuminati's Masonic elite do not want the general public to know these terrible things. After all, incredibly, Freemasonry's public image is that it is some kind of "Christian" group. So, the pretense must be maintained and the secrets buttoned up from the "profane and vulgar" masses (you and me, dear reader).

Therefore, the name of the horrible God whom the Masons worship must stay hidden.

The name and identity of the hidden God must be concealed at all costs, and thus an appropriate hand sign has been devised to represent this grotesque coverup: the Sign of the Hidden Hand.


How to Perform the Sign

Figure 34 shown here is taken directly from Duncan's Masonic Ritual and Monitor (3rd Edition). It pictures the Royal Arch Mason performing the magical Sign of the Master of the Second Veil, which I informally and more informatively call here the Sign of the Hidden Hand of the Men of Jahbuhlun.

According to Duncan's the candidate presents this sign when he is approached by three sojourners from Babylon. Their objective: Rebuild the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem and eventually establish a world empire of the Jews.

In his teaching course on Ancient Masonry, C.C. Zain of The Brotherhood of Light explains that the ritual for this degree requires a keen understanding of astrology. But, its performance is said to be derived from a passage in the scriptures. "The sign is made," writes Zain, "by thrusting the hand into the bosom and again drawing it out."9 The official Masonic explanation for this sign—a myth intended to divert the profane from the truth — is that it refers to the fourth chapter of Exodus in the Bible :

"And the Lord said unto Moses, put now thine hand into thy bosom; and he put his hand into his bosom; and when he took it out, behold his hand was leprous as snow."

Leprous, indeed, is the hand of the Mason who vainly seeks to hide and coverup his fides oath of allegiance to Jahbuhlun, his sacred God. But, believe me, there is no relationship of the Mason to Moses, a prophet of God who loyally worshipped the true I AM, the God who reigns for all eternity in heaven.

George Washington in a Masonic pose. Around his neck is the emblem of the moon Goddess, feminine complement to the sun God, Osiris, secretly worshipped in occult Freemasonry. This emblem, combined with the diamond-shaped device just above it, indicates that Washington had taken the vow of vengeance to all enemies of the Order of the Illuminati.

The Marquis de Lafayette of France presented George Washington with this Masonic apron which is now preserved in the library of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia. It contains many occultic symbols, the meaning of which presumably is reserved for higher-level Masonic brethren. Many, however, are ousted and explained in this book, to the chagrin, I am sure, of the Masonic brotherhood.

The symbols include a strange crowned angel blowing a horn and a phoenix bird with a torch aflame in its head from which issues a swirling fire, or sun sign. The Society of the Illuminati was eventually disbanded when public awareness grew that this small band of conspirators seemed to be exercising undue control of governments.

Initiates of many occult societies, including Masons and Rosicrucians, select a mark peculiar to them which they affix to their signature. This is George Washington's signature. See if you can find his "mark."

Roberts, Macoy Publishing & Masonic Supply Co., Inc., Richmond, Virginia, sketch by Ronald LeHew)

Many paintings and drawings depicting delegates who drafted and approved the Declaration of Independence show one or more of the delegates secretly identifying his secret society membership through a hand signal. The name of Jesus is never mentioned in either the Declaration of Independence or the subsequent United States Constitution. Instead, our nation's founders used vague, Illuminist coded terms like "Nature's God" or "Providence."


Benjamin Franklin, a key leader of the delegates, was both a Grand Master Mason (Lodge of Nine Sisters, Paris, France) and a Rosicrucian. Thomas Jefferson, who helped draft the Declaration of Independence, wrote favorably of the Order of the Illuminati and its founder, European Jesuit Professor Adam Weishaupt.

Booth and his elder brother, Edwin, were both members of the Masonic Lodge, but because of John Wilkes' notoriety, the Freemasons quietly removed his name from their rolls.


To this day the Scottish Rite's membership office maintains that only brother Edwin was a Mason (Photo from book, American Brutus, by Michael W. Kaufman).

This photograph of Lt. Elisha Hunt Rhodes is from a 1993 book entitled Freemasons at Gettysburg, by Sheldon A. Munn. The caption above the photograph said that Lt. Rhodes was,

U.S.A. President Teddy Roosevelt, seen reviewing the troops onboard a Navy ship, is giving the secret sign of the followers of the God, Jahbuhlun. Was it Teddy who once said, "Speak softly and keep your hand well hid," or was that, "Speak softly and carry a big stick?"

Karl Marx, the Jewish radical who inspired Lenin and Trotsky with his Communist theories, was secretly a High Priest of Satan (see Richard Wurmbrand's book, Marx and Satan). Shown here in his official portrait, Marx is giving an enigmatic Masonic hand sign (see Richardson's Monitor of Freemasonry, p. 74).

Vladimir Lenin, Jewish Mason who led the Communist overthrow of the Czar in Russia, gives the hidden sign of the men who worship the God, Jahbuhlun. Lenin and his cohorts established the Red Terror, the brutal massacre of tens of millions.

General Paul Von Hindenburg, the notable World War I German war hero of the Russian front who won numerous victories. Later, in the Nazi era, a blimp, named after the General, The Hindenburg, was destroyed by flames while attempting to land in New Jersey (U.S.A.) after a celebrated transatlantic flight. Many lives were lost.

These men saw to the purge, torture, and death of untold thousands before they, in turn, were wiped out by Stalin. Levandovsky (center) is displaying his Masonic "Jahbuhlun" hand signal. Mekhonoshin (right) wears the llluminati phyrgian cap.

Four Gulag camp commandants. Note that all four are giving the secret sign of Jewish Freemasonry, just as did Communism's founding father, the Jewish Mason, Karl Marx.

Sculptor Auguste Bertholdi was a member of Paris, France's Grand Orient Lodge. It was Bertholdi (1834-1904) who sculpted the Illuminati's monumental Statue of Liberty which now graces New York's harbor. The statue is replete with Secret Society coded messages and symbols of a particularly blasphemous nature. Yet, the vast majority of Americans adore the Statue of Liberty and naively see in her only virtue and goodness.

In the mid-nineteenth century, French writer Victor Hugo (author of Les Miserables) cut a huge swath in occult circles. Here we see the mystical minded Hugo giving a clear hand sign of Masonic Luciferian design. It was Victor Hugo who wrote the story, "The Man Who Laughs," about a boy whose face had been horribly shaped into a permanent smile by fiendish cosmetic butchers.


The grotesque tale was the basis for Batman's "Joker" character. It was alleged that Victor Hugo was not only a Rosicrucian but was also Grand Master of the occultic order known as the Priory of Sion.

In this ad for Hitachi Electronics, Napoleon is using the left-handed path (dark occultism) of magic. Napoleon was also reputed to be an llluminatus and an initiate into the Greater Mysteries (Areopagite degree). Note also the sun sign (Maltese) badge.

Now we find yet another indication of Napoleon's secret society involvement. Wearing red, the color of Rothschild and blood, Napoleon signifies his left-hand path orientation. The symbology of the three-towered church in the background of the painting (behind the curtain!) signifies the boast that Napoleon, a political sovereign, is also Lord over the spiritual realm.

In this famous painting of Napoleon, the Emperor is depicted using his right-hand in giving the Royal Arch Mason handsign.

Irish-American politician and author Ignatius Donnelly caused a sensation in 1882 with his book, Atlantis: The Antediluvian World. Donnelly claimed scientific evidence for the existence of the fabled Lost Continent of Atlantis, which sunk under the sea, predecessor of modern civilization. Donnelly's book even contained a chart showing the alleged evolution of alphabets from the time of Atlantis to the eras of the Mayas, Egyptians, and Hebrews, etc.


The Illuminati elite of today believe they are, indeed, descended from the God-men and priests who, alone, escaped the tragic fall of the fabled Atlantis. More recently, Disney Studios did a movie, Atlantis, based on the theme, a movie saturated with esoteric codes and symbols.

Crown Prince Alexander of Yugoslavia, who now resides in London, the city where his father, the late King Peter, fled during the second world war, is shown on his first trip to Belgrade, Yugoslavia, in 1991. His Royal Highness, along with his family, dutifully posed for this photo.


Based on his hand's position, the Crown Prince clearly wanted his secret society associates and the Masonic/occultic world to know he was one of them and that the elite's power has now been established in the former Soviet-bloc nation.

How deeply was the Vatican and its Black Pope of the Jesuit Order involved in the 1865 plot to assassinate President Abraham Lincoln ?


Burke McCarty, in an extraordinary 1924 book, The Suppressed Truth About the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln, alleges that the powerful and influential Giacomo Antonelli, Cardinal and Secretary of the Papal States under Pope Pius IX, supervised the plot from afar and even hid a murderous associate of assassin John Wilkes Booth in the Vatican State, where he had fled, to protect him from execution by American authorities who sought his extradition.


In the book, researcher McCarty includes this photo of Cardinal Antonelli without, however, explaining the obvious secret society hand sign of Antonelli.

Origen (185-254 A.D.) is often called an "early church father." But, in fact, Origen brought many heresies, including Gnosticism (Illuminist ideology) into the Church. Origen, a much quoted scholar, hailed from Alexandria, Egypt, giving us yet another clue to his heretical philosophies. In this revealing pen and ink drawing, it appears that Origen's left-hand is demonstrating the mysterious sign of an ancient secret society.

This issue of the intriguing publication, Paranoia magazine, included a feature article examining the tragic life of popular young actor River Phoenix, who died of a drug overdose on Halloween in 1993. The article's writer, Al Hidell, told of Phoenix's upbringing in the sordid sex cult known as the Children of God, also called "The Family."


The cult practiced incest, holy prostitution, and other wickedness. River Phoenix, who was celebrated for his roles in such movies as Stand By Me and Running On Empty, evidently could not escape his past. Why he is shown in the photo giving the sign of Masonry is not mentioned in the magazine, but some authorities say that Children of God leader David Berg had high-level political and Masonic Lodge connections.

"War is hell," said the crusty and brutish Union General William Tecumseh Sherman, shown here displaying the sign of the Jahbuhlun cult in this official U.S. Army photo. Hundreds of civilians were massacred during Sherman's fiery march through the South.

A Republican Party convention souvenir depicting President Ronald Reagan. The web site offering it for sale describes it thusly: "From the 1984 convention, a smiling Ronnie in a Napoleonic stance." Reagan was given the honorary 33rd degree by Scottish Rite leaders in a private ceremony conducted in the lame duck President's Oval Office in Washington, D.C., just weeks before his second and final term ended. The author has a picture of this ceremony in his files.
