Some of you may remember an older thread I started about "fornication". The word derrived from an archaic word which meant basically, 'something traitorous done between the arches'. The arches represented the entrance to the temple. The common meaning that has been passed down is that to go into other temples, to walk through other arches, rather than "the one" temple, is to prostitute oneself to false gods and idols.
I'd like to talk about the significance of the arch, the pillars that hold it up, and what they represent.
The Temple of Solomon had two pillars which held up a pyramidal arch. (The Masons lay claim to the Temple Mount---the site of Solomon's Temple---because their mythology has the organization being established by Hiram, the mason who built the Temple 3000 years ago.) These pillars are named Joachim and Boaz. The meaning of the names remains a mystery to those who are not initiated into high places. But the meaning of those names reveal why those who cross this threshold and go between those pillars and under the arch are the Temple Prostitutes.
Joachim. Joachimsthaler were coins minted in the 16th century and became known as "thaler" for short. You can see from the phonetics that this word easily transformed to become the word "dollar" in our vocabulary today. There are similar words for monetary units in many languages that derrive from this word.
Boaz. The importance of the pillar of Boaz is that he is the son of a whore, Rahab. If you recall, Rahab was a traitor to her own people and sold out her community to save her own skin. If you read the scriptures as they are written, and without influence from "storytellers" that portray her as a heroine, you will see that her decision to aid jihad spies was out of fear because she knew their reputation. It had nothing to do with "being converted to serve Jehovah". Very clearly she made a deal with the spies in order to save her life. The red cord that she hung from her window has become the lasting symbol for whores and through the ages was changed to a red light.
These two pillars, Joachim and Boaz represent money and whoredom. Those who pass between these columns are those who would sell out humanity for their own self interest.
And now you know.
