1-3-7-6 and the Four Banners of Masonry

11 8 5 2  = 1 3 7 6

The following info is a cut and paste from this blog:
http://www.travelingtemplar.com/2012/06/symbols-of-royal-arch-masonry-part-2.html

The colors of these four banners are Blue, Purple, Scarlet, and White representing the tribes of Judah, Ephraim, Reuben, and Dan.  The devices attached to these four banners, respective to their colors are: an eagle, a man, an ox, and a lion. According to the Masonic Leader blog, “But as to what were the devices on the banners, or what were their various colors, the Bible is absolutely silent. To the inventive genius of the Talmudists are we indebted for all that we know or profess to know on this subject.” These four banners are filled with many meaning.

With the First Banner we see the color blue to remind us of our intimate connection with the Blue Lodge. Symbolically the color blue can mean friendship, loyalty/fidelity, integrity, steadfastness, and strength.  By strength we see the Royal Arch degree complete the Master Mason degree, thereby completing ones initiatory journey through Ancient Craft Masonry and strengthening ones knowledge of the lessons imparted. The device attached to this banner is the Eagle who has been a symbol of courage (fortitude), the spirit, strength, messengers of heaven, and masters of the air. The Tribe of Dan is represented by this banner.  According to the Book of Numbers, the Tribe of Dan was said to be the second largest Israelite tribe, after Judah.  The most famous Danite was Samson and his famous hair. This banner represents moral integrity, which aligns with the Masonic virtue of temperance.

The Second Banner depicts a man upon a purple background and is said to represent the Israelite tribe of Reuben. This color stands for royalty, sovereignty, and magic/enchantment.  Like the color blue, this color reminds us not only of our connection to the Blue Lodge, but the union of Craft and Royal Arch Masonry.  This man, against the other creatures of this Earth, is an emblem of intelligence, the gift from God to be stewards of this Earth. According to the Torah, this tribe consisted of the descendants of Reuben, the first son of Jacob, who lived on the East side of the Dead Sea. Together, this banner represents strength, which corresponds to the Masonic virtue of fortitude.

The Third Banner is scarlet with an ox depicted upon it, to represent the tribe of Ephraim. Scarlet is a color fervency, zeal, of passion, and of blood and therefore life.  It used to represent warriors with their bravery and courage as well as the blood of martyrs’ in their steadfastness to their beliefs. The ox is seen as a patient, diligent, and powerful (as in strength) animal. From the Bible, the ox was a sacrificial animal and symbolizes St. Luke. This tribe is said to be descendants of Ephraim, a son of Joseph. Even though he wasn’t the eldest he received the blessing of the firstborn as Jacob, his grandfather, foresaw that Ephraim’s descendents would be the greatest of his siblings. The area occupied by this tribe was at the center of Canaan, a very mountainous region giving it protection, and was highly fertile which gave the people prosperity. This banner represents patience and diligence, and compare that to the Masonic virtue of prudence.

The Fourth Banner with its pure white background shows us the lion upon it, the sigil of the Tribe of Judah. White is a wondrous color and it symbolizes many things such as light, innocence, purity, joy, sanctity, silence, secrecy, humility, and balance. Traditionally, the lion was seen as lord of the land, the king of the beasts, as the eagle is supreme in the air. It was used by warriors and noblemen alike as a symbol of their strength and authority. Symbolically the lion represents courage, valor, power, royalty, dignity, justice, wisdom, and ferocity. The lion while the ancients saw the lion as a “solar animal”, but the lion is primarily a nocturnal hunter; with this we see the lion as a symbol of balance between night and day, darkness and light. The tribe of Judah, the leading tribe of the Kingdom of Judah, is known for its important Jewish leaders to include David and his royal lineage, the prophet Isaiah, and Zerubbabel (as claimed by the Exilarchs). This banner represents promptness and readiness, and can be compared to the Masonic virtue of justice.

So how do we link up the numbers 1376 to the Man, the Eagle, the Lion, and the Bull?  
Where did the numbers 11 8 5 2  come from?
How do we link up those colors to LEI/ley lines and magnetism?

What does it all mean?

    “The Hebrew word for the color actually matched the color’s wave frequency,”

    Haim Shore’s methodology was relatively simple.
    He took the Hebrew names of five colors that appear in the Bible – red (adom), yellow (tzahov), green (yerakon), blue (tchelet) and purple or magenta (argaman) and calculated a numerical value for each word by adding the total values of the letters, with aleph as one, bet as two, etc

    Then he plotted them on a graph. The vertical axis charted the colors’ wave frequencies, which are scientifically established, while along the horizontal axis, the ‘CNV’, Color Name Value, appeared.

    “The five points on the graph formed a straight line – which means that the names of the colors related directly to their established wave frequencies.”

    It’s been a while since I saw any of your work but I decided to take another look at things…

    I found this page over at the 2012 forum:-

    http://2012forum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=8972&start=15

    Also, I solved the connection between card x and number 19756…

      Gary feel free to post it here if you like?

      or here on this fb group I started:

        I took the 19,756 and divided it by 4 due to the numerous hints regarding that number that you had left on that page. I took it that the 4 referred to the 4 elements on the inside of the wheel; sulfur, “water” (aquarius), mercury & salt.

        Anyway, the result is 4,939 which is 4 and 939 (really 369 after rotating one 9 to a 6). 4 for four letters in YHVH and 369 corresponds to 258 as follows:-

        11 Matthew = Fomalhaut in Aquarius (1+3+7=11)
        2 Luke = Aldebaran in Taurus = 3
        5 Mark = Regulus in Leo = 6
        8 John = Antares in Scorpio = 9

        I think that’s about the size of it.

        Here is my latest AHA regarding 137 + 69 linking it to DNA and what ‘just is’

        I always look for the SIMPLETON idEA behind the COMPLEXITY

        ABCs of DNA
        (position in the ALPHA-bet)

        1 – A
        3 – C
        7 – G

        Plus the DNA/RNA wild cards that swap positions T and U
        currently I AM playing with these idEAs:

        20 – T
        21 – U

        note from the T and U we can in fact extract the 6 and 9 and a 5 and 8 and a 1

        T = 2
        U = 3
        (2+1)

        subtract 3 – 2 = 1
        add 2(T) + 3(U) = 5
        exponent 2^3 = 8
        multiply 2 x 3 = 6
        exponent 3^2 = 9

        Till next time (I will watch that video now) 😉

        selah = 137?
        what is selah?
        look it up
        selah = AHA? 🙂

        selah

      • hawk1378  On December 22, 2012 at 8:55 pm

        Selah means: To lift up, exalt;
        Selah (a technical musical term probably showing accentuation, pause, interruption)

        The Hebrew code for Selah = SLH = 95

    This last week I feel like my whole world has turned upside down. It just occurred to me that card x shows an “arrow” going through a ZERO from Omega towards Alpha on the TARO/ROTA wheel.

    And the following:-

    12-21-12 = 12 and (2+1) = 123 x (1+2)
    = 369

    And Tesla died in room #3327, well 3 cubed = 27. Divide 3327 by 3 squared and it gives the famous 369 and change.

    Things are suddenly starting to make more sense…

    Watch the first 10min video at this website ( it’s called The Time Temple) and it’s about halfway down the page.

    http://www.endelrivers.com/conceptx.html

    Using the alignments of the pyramids at Giza a map of the solar system is drawn that corresponds to the planetary positions on 7 July 2009. That date is exactly 1,260 days before 12-21-12. The video is self-explanatory.

    Ok, so I was reading a bit and I got to thinking about the word selah. Eventually, I thought that I saw the IR light but I’m only 78.8% oN My idea. The musical part of Hawk’s definition of selah made me think that I was barking up the wrong tree and I spent 65.0 HourZ considering the dilemma. At the end of the day, I opted for the light.
