A question for those who say they are Masons
Is this one of their secret signals/hand signs or whatever you would like to call it........




from what I can gather it is the sign for Melquisedek
who a reference to can be found in Gen. 14:18-20.

Funny thing is...any info I can find on Melquisedek, is in spanish...(of course you can ask for the results in English, but you would think that they were availiable in English)


Can anyone tell me what G:.A:.D:.U:. is......
Thoughts?

No.
I'm 99% sure that that is a Mormon thing. The Mormons have a priesthood called Order of Melchizadek, and they dress in the same apparel as the guy in the photo you posted. Masons wear leather Aprons during Lodge meetings, which is a tradition dating back to the medieval stonemasons. The Mormon priesthood wear aprons too, but they do it, at least ostensibly, to represent the fig leaf aprons in the Garden of Eden, from the biblical story.

strange then..cause this came from a Mason group...the "e-book" is called
"BAPHOMET the magazine of initiation, truth and equality".
References that I find for Baphomet are
"BAPHOMET THE SABBATIC GOAT"
www.luckymojo.com...

here they say it has to do with the Templars

Eliphas Lvi:The Man Behind Baphomet
www.templarhistory.com...

Here a book at Amazon.com

"Maurice Blanchot "THE BAPHOMET -- transforming into myth the legend of the Templars -- "

there are more.....
anyway the "ezine" did mention the Mormons, said that Joseph Smith was a Mason etc etc.

So do you know what "G:.A:.D:.U:." is?
the message in spanish is
"QUE EL G:.A:.D:.U:. NOS BRINDE SU LUZ"
May the G:.A:.D:.U:. bring us his light

references I find, again are in spanish but it still points to Masons,some sort of Grandmaster?

A guy once told me that the Masons hand shake was a normal hand shake except that the index finger is tucked into the palm.
The guy had been invited to one of their social nights, recruitment perhaps.

This is like the fraternity Sigma Chi handshake I read about on ATS about a week ago.

A mason never gives any secrets away so i reckon we will never know what a masons handshake is, amybe different societies have differenthandshakes.

The Mormon Church does have Masonic origins though.

Many of the Mormon Church's leaders were/are Masons, including the founder(s).

We give away the Secrets all the time Drunk. Heck, we just gave away the secrets of the 4 thru 32 to 16 men here this last weekend. And we give away the secrets of the 1, 2 and 3 on one or two Tuesday nights a month at our Blue Lodge, all you need to do is ask for an application


As for the first post in this thread, it is a Mormon sign. I can't remember where I saw it first but it was in a Mormon expose'. Many of the Mormon rituals are similar to the Masonic ritual as their founder was a Mason. Of course many rituals of many other groups are similar to Masonic ritual, why make new when someone else has done the work for you

I was flicking through Manly P. Hall's 'The Lost Keys of Freemasonry' quite recently and there seemed to be a mention of a 'Priest King' of the Order of Melchizadek being a guardian to Masonry. This may explain the Masonic roots throughout Mormonism if it is in fact an LDS order.

That is possible. The Presiding Officer of a Chapter of Royal Arch Masons is technically styled the High Priest, and High Priests of Royal Arch Masonry are eligible to receive an honorary degree called Order of High Priesthood, or sometimes called of Melchizadek.
Joseph Smith was not a Royal Arch Mason, but was familiar with the various Masonic Orders, and "borrowed" Masonic titles for his churchmen quite often.
