Egypt, do “they” really know the story behind it?
Misinformation is abundant on the internet today, and many are swallowed up by it, but this misinformation had been going on long before the internet was even a thought, and has been engrained into our education system with theories taught as facts.
How do I say this without coming across as all knowing, sanctimonious or the like? for this is not the case, I do not feel I am superior to any other being, I just like to think I have the same natural intelligence we are all born with and I have a different view of things as we all do, and have not been molded into the same thinking pattern as a given organisation or group of people such as in this case, the geological and archaeologic world.
I never understood why these organizations thrive on new discoveries in order to understand more about what they study, but with this new discovery, if it does not fit the conditioned and controlled thinking of the peers, it is twisted to fit, or simply discarded or hidden away. Is this good science?
Why do they not consider the writings of those who existed at or near the same time frame of the topic they find interest? Why is it the many writings of the past such as the Bible, The lost books of the Bible, Forgotten book of Eden, Josephus, legends told by the indigenous etc, all of which seem to get set aside? Do they really think they are so superior that they can disregard these things claiming there is not God? Have each of them done their due diligence in evaluating these sources where in they have shown through an honest effort to prove or disprove the validity of each? I think not.
I believe in all things that God “may” have revealed, but because he may or may not have… I choose to “prove ALL things: and hold fast to that which is good” (Thessalonians 5:21)
With the previous said, I will continue, however I will not hash over the things that are thought to be truth concerning the Egyptians, what the current belief is, things concerning the written language, when the pyramids were built, how and by whom etc… The books and the internet are full of this information and you have full access to it. I am going to tell you what you may have not known…
I was watching a program many years ago of Discovery or the like, regarding the ancient origins of the Pyramids and Sphynx, A geologist was studying the side walls of the Sphynx and just could not get over what he was seeing and so he took closer pictures as not to show the overall Sphynx and sent them to is colleague and peer, He asked him what form of erosion would you say caused this erosion pattern on this wall? His colleague stunned said, well you know very well what has caused this pattern of erosion, why are you asking me? You know well and good this is due to underwater erosion, what are the pictures of? At which he replied, the sides of the Sphynx! OH MY! came the reply…
Since this occurred I have from time to time followed up on this concept and it has now migrated to and now credited to “Long Periods of Rain” because we can’t have it being underwater, that might mean there actually was a flood, or even worse! What if that guy Joseph of the Mormon people were actually right?
In a small book that exists as a result of purportedly translated portions of Egyptian papyrus by Joseph Smith of the Mormons, in this book is a portion of that translation which reads as follows;
Book of Abraham Chapter 1
21 Now this king of Egypt was a descendant from the loins of Ham, and was a partaker of the blood of the Canaanites by birth.
22 From this descent sprang all the Egyptians, and thus the blood of the Canaanites was preserved in the land.
23 The land of Egypt being first discovered by a woman, who was the daughter of Ham, and the daughter of Egyptus, which in the Chaldean signifies Egypt, which signifies that which is forbidden;
24 When this woman discovered the land it was under water, who afterward settled her sons in it; and thus, from Ham, sprang that race which preserved the curse in the land.
25 Now the first government of Egypt was established by Pharaoh, the eldest son of Egyptus, the daughter of Ham, and it was after the manner of the government of Ham, which was patriarchal.
26 Pharaoh, being a righteous man, established his kingdom and judged his people wisely and justly all his days, seeking earnestly to imitate that order established by the fathers in the first generations, in the days of the first patriarchal reign, even in the reign of Adam, and also of Noah, his father, who blessed him with the blessings of the earth, and with the blessings of wisdom, but cursed him as pertaining to the Priesthood.
Now the academic world like to make fun of this one, at least until discovering the Sphynx not to mention the entire northern quarter of Africa was indeed at one time in the past, under water. How could Egyptus, the daughter of Ham discover a land which was under water? Ridiculous! Well let me tell you how she did it… If you take a good look at the 3 pyramids, you will notice the top portion of the Pyramid of Khafre, also the highest in elevation, has this portion on top which seems somehow to have escaped the same extent of erosion as the lower portion has, and the other two… How is this?
If these geologist would examine the eroded lower portion and the other two pyramids, they would find that they too were under water for a significant period of time, in fact near 300 years but how could this be? In short, Egyptus while out boating one day, perhaps fishing… spotted the top of the Highest Pyramid sticking out of the water. After the events that took place in the days of Peleg “When the Earth Divided” (NOT Continental Shift) the waters receded to a level EVEN Lower than they are today which is why we have today, underwater cities off the coast of Egypt “Perfectly Preserved.” They call them “sunken” cities but I assure you they did not sink! These water levels rose to today’s levels about 2000 years ago, the real secret is how did this happen? Again, this would be a book. You see, you have been brought to believe that we have, “ocean level” there is no such thing. Where ever the pole is established the waters of the earth are drawn towards it and its opposite and will always be deeper as a result. All one has to do is consider the moons effect on the tides of this planet. IF it were possible to shut off the earth’s magnetic field, EVERY dry land low elevation of the earth within a thousand miles of today’s equator if not further, would be flooded… Florida would be gone and Egypt would again be under water. There are many mysteries of “sunken” cities which could be explained if science would stop ignoring and excusing the evidence.
What does this mean?
Well it means the Egyptians didn’t build the pyramids, they merely took over and occupied the structures that were built for some other purposes from prior to the great flood. Of this we have a small hint from the writings of Josephus, but the full purpose is hidden within the writings of certain books.
We find in Antiquities of the Jews by Flavius Josephus.
Now this Seth, When he was brought up, and came to those years in which he could discern what was good, became a virtuous man; and as he was himself of an excellent character, so did he leave children behind him who imitated his virtues. All these proved to be of good dispositions. They also inhabited the same country without dissensions, and in a happy condition, without any misfortunes falling upon them, till they died. They also were the inventors [Discoverers] of that peculiar sort of wisdom which is concerned with the heavenly bodies, and their order. And that their inventions [Discoveries] might not be lost before they were sufficiently known, upon Adam's prediction that the world was to be destroyed at one time by the force of fire, and at another time by the violence and quantity of water, they made two pillars, [Monuments] the one of brick, the other of stone: they Inscribed [Encoded] their discoveries on/in them both, that in case the pillar [Monument] of brick should be destroyed by the flood, the pillar [Monument] of stone might remain, and exhibit those discoveries to mankind; and also inform them that there was another pillar [Monument] of brick erected by them. Now this remains in the land of Siriad to this day. (Also see Isaiah 19:19-20)
I would highly recommend a book called Stonehenge, A Closer Look, by Bonnie Gaunt, although I do not think she knew it, she came closer to the understanding of the intended purpose of the pyramids than anyone, a purpose I will only say is very near that of the first Temples built by the Mormons.
Many theories exist as to who the Egyptians were, the short of it is they were a Mulatto people, a mix blood much as are the people today who refer to themselves as “African American,” they are neither considered black or white. Their beginnings were of a righteous nature as the first king or Pharaoh was a righteous man, the eldest son of Egyptus, or the grandson of Ham.
History has it that they forcibly enslaved the Israelite and give us visions of slavery of the worst kind, not only in the written form but in the movies and this just isn’t true. The Egyptians built from the ruins of a former culture an appealing life, one in which the Israelite were enticed by and desired. As time passed eventually they fell into bondage to the Egyptians and captivity. This does not mean slavery such as was known at the time the Spanish came to this continent and which was under most brutal circumstances done first to the indigenous of this land and then to the imported Africans. Bondage and captivity simply means they fell into servitude, of their own doing, indebted to them, under contract. Many never understood why the Israelite was so hesitant to be led out of bondage by Moses, Moses! they cried, these Egyptian are taking great care of us! why we have our Medicare, Medicaid, Food stamps, Obama Care, Welfare, unemployment benefits, low income housing, free cell phones and such, why would we want to leave all this? And in case you haven’t noticed, it is happening again.
Included below is an excellent article written by Alexander Winslow.
My only contention with his article is that it would seem he is under the impression that “Seth” mentioned in Antiquities of the Jews, is different than “Seth” supposedly the first King of Egypt as per the writings of Herodotus who says it was told him by Egyptian Priests, supposed to be King BEFORE the great flood, and this cannot be so as Egypt didn’t exist before the flood, but many of the profound structures did...
The Egyptologists are no different, “Im Ho Tep” the very individual they give credit to the intelligence and all the technologies and who had many titles, and who is none other than Joseph himself, who was sold into “Bondage” “Ye Ho Seph.” When the two are compared in all that is know about them, the only difference is the Egyptologist dates of Imhotep’s existence is 1100 years different, but they couldn’t possibly be wrong now could they? I’ll believe they are different when they find Imhoteps bones in Egypt.
Deep in the land of Siriad (Egypt), where the hot sun beats down mercilessly during the day, while the cold still of the night chills one’s body even to the very marrow, if not properly attired, a mystery lingers among the many curiosities that lay sprawled across the vast open plains near Cairo. A mystery that until recently was thought to be too insignificant to warrant any further investigation. Even though its very existence presents man’s most important link with the past.
It all began when a professor by the name of William Whiston decided to translate a copy of the manuscript ‘Antiquities of the Jews’, by Josephus the Jewish historian, from Latin to English. Even at the very beginning, a curious paragraph came to light. It read like this: “They also were the inventors of that peculiar sort of wisdom, which is concerned with the heavenly bodies, and their order. And, that their inventions might not be lost before they were sufficiently known, upon Adam’s prediction that the world was to be destroyed at one time by the force of fire, and another time by the violence and quantity of water, they made two pillars, the one of brick, the other of stone; they inscribed their discoveries on them both, that in case the pillar of brick should be destroyed by the flood, the pillar of stone might remain, and exhibit those discoveries to mankind, and also inform them that there was another pillar of brick erected by them. Now this remains in the land of Siriad to this day.”
Intrigued by the claim made in this statement, and the very fact that mankind’s link with the past offered a chance to regain knowledge that had up to then been considered lost, it was decided that a group should visit the area and identify this ‘Pillar’. Once identified, if it existed, they would be able to glean from it that much coveted knowledge. Some years later, after a thorough search throughout the land of Egypt had been carried out, the group returned to Britain with their report. It was felt that Josephus had made an error in his statement, and confused the ‘pillar’ erected by Seth (Sesostris) King of Egypt, with that which he felt had been erected by Seth, son of Adam. And yet today, if we were to visit that ancient land of mystery and wonder, and stand on the same spot as Josephus, there in front of us, dominating the landscape for all to see, is the pillar in the land of Siriad! But how could such a small pillar such as the one erected by Sesostris, hold such command over all that surrounds it? We might well ask.
The answer is as intriguing as the statement first made by Josephus. After further investigation, we would interpose a suggestion here. It is simply, that Josephus was not in error. The Emperor Vespasianus, patron of the Jewish Writer, had previously visited the area mentioned. Being a shrewd character, he would know if Josephus had made a mistake. The key to most mysteries of this sort lies in the translation. The people of his time were able to see the edifice spoken of in his writings while Josephus was still alive. They too would have recognised this monument of antiquity by its exterior. Until its white marble casing stones were removed to build the mosques and palaces of Cairo, they remained in place for all to see, engraved with letters and symbols expressing the entire knowledge of antiquity.
This knowledge written and engraved in the ‘pure’ language, was spoken by all persons before the confusion of the tongues at Babel. Therefore, no one during the time of Josephus, would have had any difficulty whatsoever in identifying this historical gem. Of course, as it was written in the ‘pure’ language, no-one could understand it. Hence, yet another established proof of that which was written by Josephus.
So the query in the footnote on page 49 of Whiston’s translation of Josephus Volume 1? When translating the document into English, Whiston copied from an earlier Latin translation. Josephus however, wrote his original manuscript in Greek. With such a limited language as Latin, the nearest word to describe this self standing shape is Columna, meaning ‘Column’ or ‘Pillar’. In Josephus’ Greek original, it is suggested that he used instead of στύλος meaning ‘pillar’, he wrote πυραμος meaning ‘pyramos’ a ‘self standing pillar of fire and knowledge’. This is borne-out in the statement by Isaiah when concerning this same edifice he proclaimed:- “In that day there shall be an altar to the lord, in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the Lord. And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of Hosts in the land of Egypt;” (Isaiah 19:19,20)
The root-word for pillar used in this statement is the Hebrew מַצֵבָה ‘matstseba’ which means a thing set up, a standing pillar. This is far different to the Hebrew root-word ﬠמּוּה ‘ammud’ which simply means column. An interesting addition to this is found in the ancient Coptic records of Masoudi in the Arabic manuscript of the Akbar-Ezzeman, at Oxford, which relates that “Surid (Seth)… one of the kings of Egypt before the flood, built two great pyramids.”
In the account the Great Pyramid is referred to as “the Eastern Pyramid.” “…In the Eastern Pyramid (the Great Pyramid) were inscribed the heavenly spheres and figures representing the stars and planets…”
The manuscript of Makrizi gives a similar account stating that “the first (the Great) Pyramid was especially dedicated to history and astronomy; the second (Pyramid) to medical knowledge.”
Many more accounts giving testimony in this way are extant today. However, whatever their validity, one thing is now certain. The ‘Pillar’ or ‘Pyramus’ erected by Seth and the antediluvians in the land of Siriad (Egypt) as stated by Josephus, and still standing today for all to see, is none other than the ‘Great Pyramid’!
