    Default The Lost Word

    jlockest brought up The Lost Word in another thread, so I figured I would start a thread dedicated to the topic and reveal the Word here.

    This is what the Masonic Dictionary says about the lost word.

    The mythical history of Freemasonry informs us that there once existed a Word of surpassing value, and claiming a profound veneration; that this Word was known to but few; that it was at length lost; and that a temporary substitute for it was adopted. But as the very philosophy of Freemasonry teaches us that there can be no death without a resurrection-no decay without a subsequent restoration-on the same principle it follows that the loss of the Word must suppose its eventual recovery.

    Now, this it is, precisely, that constitutes the myth of the Lost Word and the search for it. No matter what was the Word, no matter how it was lost, nor why a substitute was provided, nor when nor where it was recovered. These are all points of subsidiary importance, necessary, it is true, for knowing the legendary history, but not necessary for understanding the symbolism. The only term of the myth that is to be regarded in the study of its interpretation, is the abstract idea of a word lost and afterward recovered.

    The Word, therefore, may be conceived to be the symbol of Dianne Truth; and all its modifications- the loss, the substitution, and the recovery-are but component parts of the mythical symbol which represents a search after truth. In a general sense, the Word itself being then the symbol of Divine Truth, the narrative of its loss and the search for its recovery becomes a mythical symbol of the decay and 1088 of the true religion among the ancient nations, at and after the dispersion on the Plains of Shinar, and of the attempts of the wise men, the philosophers, and priests, to find and retain it in their secret mysteries and initiations, which have hence been designated as the Spurious Freemasonry of Antiquity.

    But there is a special or individual, as well as a general interpretation, and in this special or individual interpretation the Word, with its accompanying myth of a loss, a substitute, and a recovery, becomes a symbol of the personal progress of a candidate from his first initiation to the completion of his course, when he receives a full development of the mysteries.

    So, it has been said that the best place to hide a secret is right in front of your eyes. The Lost Word is no different. The secret is staring right at each person that reads or speaks the phrase "The Lost Word".

    All you need to do to find it is look at what is right in front of you. The lost Word is hiding in "WORD".

    Use the concept of First and last, or beginning and end.

    The first letter is "W", which is the 23rd letter of the alphabet.

    The last letter is "D", which is the 4th letter of the alphabet.

    Combine the two together to get 234.

    Reverse 234 to get 432.

    Now add both together, 234 + 432 = 666

    The Lost Word is 666.

    666 is what you need to find the Truth.

    That is it, that is the great secret word. It was really easy to find, but Masons have searched for years.

    The lost Word is mentioned in the MASTER MASON DEGREE - SECOND SECTION

    The Lost Word is revealed when they go to bury the Master.

    And here is the body. Assist me to carry it in a due west course from the Temple to the brow of a hill, where I have dug a grave six feet deep east and west and six feet perpendicular, in which we will bury it.
    The grave is six feet deep east and west, implying 66, and 6 feet perpendicular.

    So, 66 and 6 gives the Lost Word, or 666.

    Aren't you falling into a trap there?
    Surely you're only thinking there's something significant in that because you hold some significance in 666. So you've simply taken something that fits. Why take letters one and 4 - why not two and three?
    Would you still have thought it significant if the numbers for W and D added up to 374? But 374 could still be the answer couldn't it - but you'd never recognise it, simply because the number holds no previous significance to you.

    Letters 2 and 3 are irrelevant. It could easily have been hidden in any word that starts with W and ends with D.

    Jesus is the first and last, and only the first and last, so looking elsewhere is pointless. Your example 374 means nothing.

    Remember that Duncan told us to look for it. Why do you ignore what is in the book? "Find A Devil"

    666 is the number of Jesus, the Bible tells us that, but most never see it because it can't be that simple.

    But surely again you've leapt to an assumption. You have assumed Christianity in the coding. Why? Wasn't (isn't) the point of Masonry that it is global? The Mason takes his obligation on the VSL NOT specifically the Bible - but whatever text is sacred to him. The only caveat I'm aware of, is that a prospective Mason (ignoring the Grand Orient) must have a belief in a single G_d. There is no requisite to believe in Christ or the Bible for that matter.

    Where does the Bible say that 666 is the number of Jesus?

    And that is the big problem with the Bible and very likely why Duncan said the secret is damaging. Masonry is not Christian, but it uses only references from the Bible in the rituals. If there is a reference to the Koran I haven't seen it. One God, not the Trinity. A belief in a single God, the particular religion does not matter. Think about it.

    Read my website, brother. It is all there.

    Revelation 13:18 tells you very clearly that the number of JESUS is 666. Stop reading it the way everybody else does and assuming what you have been told by the church is correct.

    Do you remember that in one of the interviews, Duncan was asked what books he recommends we read? His reply was "The Bible, but NOT for religious purposes". Very telling statement there.

    Masonry doesn't refer to Christianity. The Christian offshoots of Masonry do. The first three degrees AFAIK are not based on any religion and I don't recall any reference to the Bible in them.

    So in revelation it says Jesus is 666? Have I missed that? Or are you saying that one interpretation of Revelation is that Jesus is 666?

    But the Bible is n'000 words long. Telling someone to read the Bible isn't much of a clue is it? And which version? And in what language?

    Duncan's bibliography also referenced the complete illustrated works of Shakespeare.

    Yes it does. Why? What is the legend about Shakespeare?

    Have you ever heard that Sir Francis Bacon was really the writer of the plays and Shakespeare was not? Duncan pointed this out. Part of the legend is that a Baconian cipher is hidden in the Shakespeare plays. You need the original texts, but I have not dug into it much. There is also a possible Baconian cipher in the King James Bible.

    Francis Bacon was the final editor of the King James Bible and he took about a year to do his work.

    Duncan also said the Francis Bacon was the likely person who developed the Masonic rituals.

    He also wrote "New Atlantis", which many say is a blueprint for building America.

    Yes it does, and yes you have missed it. It is not an interpretation. The proof is in the math.

    Duncan told us what version.
