Many of the symbols in Masonry come directly out of the Bible. For example the 33rd degree is the highest degree and it is compared to Yahshua’s 33 year life and ministry. The Messiah brought in a new order or Covenant out of the chaotic darkness under the old Covenant due to sin. The motto of the 33rd degree “Ordo Ab Chao,” means “order out of chaos.”
Freemasonry uses the number 13 and it appears many times on the U.S. Great Seal. This is compared to 12 tribes of Israel and the 13th is the Levite tribe (Priesthood and keepers of the tabernacle). Also Yahshua was surrounded by 12 disciples and He was the 13th.
Freemasons swear to “blood oaths” just as Israel under the LAW swore to a “Blood oath” with Yahweh when they agreed to the terms of the covenant Moses presented to them from Yahweh when he came down from the mount. Scriptures says that the covenant was dedicated with blood. William T. Still tells us about some of the ‘blood oaths’ in the lower degrees of Freemasonry in his book New World Order, pg. 99-100, 103).
Now Masonry is a secret order, meaning they have secrets that their members are forbidden to divulge. Likewise, in comparison the Hebrew Priesthood, was a secret order. They kept the secrets of the ministry of the tabernacle; none but them knew how to officiate therein).
