From ancient to modern; we have seen one of the Bibles most mentioned countries stand the test of time. As we walk through history we can determine what effect's Egypt has had over the United States, and over her people today. Egypt's customs have brought many to continue to support it's claim to being one on the most powerful influences in the occult realm.
Egypt, the land of ancient "mysteries" attracts many influential personage's. Can history confirm it's place in todays society?
France, Europe, and The United states are three of Egypt's most valued merchants; which suggest mercantilism with one of the world's most ancient cities. These three countries would help secure Egypt with the financing and restoration of some of their cultivation, agriculture, Industrial and religious backing. The building of the Suez canal would lead to great commerce, and leave Egypt in great debt to it financers; France, Europe and The United States. Archeologist and scientist would step in and help enhance the economy which would bring restoration to ancient monuments and temples; this would lead to unearthing history. One of Egypt’s great finds would be the Rosetta stone, the temples at Abu Simbel and of course the tomb of King Tut, the valley of the Kings; all this has generated the healing of a nation and it’s customs. A country once pillaged and robbed with conquering has now become the glory of it’s ancients.
As we take a look at some of the buildings in America we clearly notice Egypt's influence has aspired many. Egypt's long time history as impacted many nation's to suggest a once imagistic Kingdom of great power. The Kings of Egypt as Pharaoh meaning "Great house" were known as gods to their people, and their priest were ordained in the wisdom of astrology and magic. The priest were plain and simply magicians, and sorcerers; this can be found in the book of Exodus 7: 11. The common name of Egypt is "Mizraim" which indicates the two natural divisions of the country into upper and lower regions. The Arabic name of Egypt - mizr - signifies 'red mud;' Egypt is also called in the Bible the land of Ham, Ps. 105:23, 27, & 78:51 - a name most probley referring to 'Ham' the son of Noah, "Rahab" the proud or insolent; these appear to be the poetical appellations. The common Egyptian name of the country is written in Hieroglyphics: 'Kem meaning Chem; this name signifies in the ancient language and in Coptic, "Black," on account of the blackness of its alluvial soil. Kem is the Egyptian equivalent of Ham. The land is divided into upper Egypt - the valley of the Nile - and lower Egypt the plain of the Delta, from the Greek letter that looks like a pyramid.
In ancient Egypt the majority were slaves. They were literally stone cutters, carvers and setters; they were therefore needed by the Pharaoh’s and given the status of “citizens.” The Egyptian builder (mason) became the first union ever recorded in the history of the world. It was by the sweat and blood and dedication of these builders that were responsible for the pyramids; which made them considered one the great wonders of the world. The Pyramids of Ancient Egypt are made of limestone; which was roughly cut in the quarries in the eastern Nile cliffs directly across the river, then floated down over a high tide to the base of a work area. There the masons finished cutting the stones and marked them with red ink to indicate the place of each structure. Then of course the taskmasters laid course by using great gangs of slaves who dragged them into place by sheer human labor. Some history concludes that giants help build the pyramids known as Remphan/Anakims. Gaints in those days can be varified by the Bible.
The isolation of ancient Egypt and the unique geography of the Nile valley were influential in the development of distinctive and persistence religious ideas. The early worship of tribal deities developed into the often animal headed local and state gods, many of which represented forces in the natural world which needed to be entreated through worship and sacrifice. Throughout history of ancient Egypt, over two thousand gods were worshiped. The principle god were known to Pharaoh and his priest which governed the country and the people. The people were subject unto Pharaoh, for Pharaoh was the supreme and possessed of the 'Sun god Ra', which was the principle god of ancient Egypt. The people had freedom to worship what ever they wanted, but not whoever they wanted, for Pharaoh was 'Re-incarnated,' meaning the sun god in the flesh. There were three orders of gods, the eight principle, the twelve lesser, and the Osirian group; this group were essentially the aristocratic gods. They were manufactured or made prominent by spectulation and celebration or by the appeal which they made to a ruling caste. They were formed and selected the ruling class, and their portions were immemorial with the life and death of Osiris. It was inevitable that the worship of Osiris should make advances of democratization.
The Osirian deities absorbed most of the ancient gods connected with death, and the Osirian system caused many deities of birth to be associated with the underworld and the hall of judgment. These would go through a series of steps or degrees. This ritual was a secret process with which the priesthood and the initiate would enter the tomb (pyramid) in a private cermony; they would take a oath to the high priest of Ra; then through rebirth they would be raised out of darkness and death to be reborn into the light of the sun god 'Ra. Amon Ra the last of the great national gods of dynastic times, the god of Thebes; was almost entirely a political deity and by far the richest and most most redoubtable of the gods of Egypt.
All Egyptian cosmogonies were basically concerned with divinities of nature: the sky, the earth, the wind, the sun, the moon, and the stars. Cosmogonies were designed to incorporate the sun due to solar kingship in which the priesthood was identified in order to establish the political conditions used in cosmic forces; it became a popular system based on local and fertility deities. (Doctrine of Heliopolis) 'For example, the picture below is a relief on the outer wall of the sanctuary in the temple of Amun at Luxor of Alexander the Great offering a libation to the ithyphallic god Amun-min. The Obelisk in the picture also shows the connection between the two. The obelisk or ben ben; being the symbol of the phallus. These obelisk were dedicated to Osiris the god of regeneration, which came with a rite of initiation; a secret concealed inside the tomb. This initiatory process would take place with the priesthood in the tomb; and the book of Thoth would be rendered open and the hymns of Thoth would be muttered aloud. This representing to the ancient Egyptians the divine power of Osiris, and the regeneration of man. Here the divine power of Osiris is restored through the regeneration of man himself at the process of initiation.
Osiris was also known as god of the dead. The book of Thoth was a book of spells that were sacred to the Egyptians. Thoth was the god of science and magic to the Egyptians, but to the Greeks he was known as Hermes, and to the Chaldea’s he was Enoch; the son of Cain. We can find Enoch, Cain's son in the book of Genesis: chapter 4:17 - The generations of Cain and Enoch 4:18-24.
King James Bible - strongs hebrew dictionary, Genesis 4:17
According to the scriptures above we see that Cain builded a city and called the name of the city after the name of his son Enoch. The Hebrew word that relates to (and called the name) has two different signatures; called and name - called in the Hebrew is kawraw; which indicates to call out to; meaning to encounter a person either accidentally or in a hostile manner: means to bid or invite famous person to show forth, and proclaim, publish and pronounce who the city would be named after. The word (name) in this sentence represents the person he is telling that the city will be after his son's name not your name; which this name in the Hebrew is 8034: Shem; which means as a mark or memorial of honor and authority of renown according to a appellation by the composition of 8064 in the Hebrew which signifies the sky as a loft, alluding to the visible arch in which the clouds move; where the celestial bodies revolve: meaning the astrologers heaven. Now in the Hebrew the name Enoch means this - Hebrew: 2585, 2596, 2614; Chanock or chanak - initiated as to initiate and practice or to dedicate one to. Also narrow - as to choke one self to death by a rope - hang self. As we take a look at the city that Cain builded; this city in the Hebrew dictionary mean: 5869, 5870 - Ayin or Aven - meaning the eye or an eye as to the eye brow as seeing. As to how he builded the city; we look at Hebrew - 1121, 1129, 1004, 1007, 2004, 205, 2006 and 369 accompanied with 2o5; all numbers run reference to the same place. The word builded in Genesis 4:17 - Hebrew: ben - meaning to begin to be a builder in the since as preparing to build a city for a son (as a builder of the family name including grandson, subject, and nation; the quality and condition relating to (bayith) a house (a winter house)+ tablet +temple especially beyth aven: meaning, house of vanity from nothingness as to exert oneself usually in vain, trouble, vanity, wickedness, to set up idol; bring to idolatry; Aven or Ayin - the city of On in Egypt same as Heliopolis; city of the sun god.
Ayin, the eye as connected to the eyebrow was the eye of Ra; which was separable from him. According to legend the eye was a symbol to rule the world, known as the udjat, it was the emblem of royal power. This image was found everywhere and upon all writings; this symbol was the power that Pharaoh was the embodiment of Ra. The amulet below was found in the mummy wrappings of King Tutankhamen of Egypt.
Ayin - The all seeing eye
This symbol connection to America makes its appearance at the time of conception even though it has been around for a few thousand years, and handed down through ancestry. If we take a look into the history of the Great Seal we can begin to see why this symbol was so important to the founders of this nations. There are many websites that give some of that history, but one thing that has not been addressed is this. This seal belonged to some ancient person. Who was it? According to the act of congress, the seal of history and our inheritance in it, is this; written by Charles A.L. Totten 1897. The Seal of History volume I and II. It is revealed unto some and thus will be protected under America in the new order of the Ages, and in the ideal of her great Republic (the first born of the New World and the Heir of the West where Empires rest. This Seal and Heraldry belonging to Joseph's son who’s mother was Asenath the daughter of the High Priest of Heliopolis same as On of Egypt. This seal of “Manasseh” first born of Joseph and Asenath. The Seal of History our inheritance in the Great Seal of Manasseh, The United States of America written 1897.
You can find this in Genesis 41:45 - 51
Egypt has placed her self in the heaven's,
The Constellation, "quote" Pg. 211, 212 - The Seal of History, (The Pentalpha is the emblem of Egypt, that is, of Misraim, or "The Rock Out of Water, the Land of the Pyramid, out of which we Manassites among other sons, were called.) And this Crest was handed down unto Manasseh by his Grandfather Potipherah High priest of the city of On, and is the key to the sacred Cubit or Cap stone, which is the key to the Pyramid; now in the hands of the United states of America, heir's of Joseph and Asenath. We indeed are of Manasseh and thus sealed which gives us the overruling hand of Providence.
Egypt temples were dedicated to the gods, and each provided the King who built it with a place for worshipng his patron god during his lifetime, and then served as his mortuary chapel after death. Hence they became elaborate and sumptuous, befitting both the Kings and the gods of a mighty empire......
The gods of ancient Egypt, mostly manifestation of two or three universal concepts were tangible entities that had their seats in local shrines; which reproduced in their architecture that the world of the first time when the Creator arose from the waters of Chaos. In his house upon the prime evil mound the god had existed from the beginning in the form of a graven image (Ptah). Like a human grandee he was tended in his habitation by servants (the priest), service from all profane and unclean contact, and protected by magic from the assults of evil in whatever form it should come. In the immense developement in temple building, the master builder with the great temples and the personnel became part of the machinery of state. They administered the religious foundations of the Pharaohs. The local governors, and as tenants of the royal domains assessed the paid taxes on their extensive and scattered estates. Their granaries, stockyards and store rooms became part of the national exchequer, playing a prime role in the economic organization of the country. The prosperity of the temple and it's god was therefore indissoluble from the prosperity of the state. The Pharaoh, in fact was nominally the chief prophet of every god, the intermediary between man and the divinity, as his statues at the entrace to the temple made plain. The priesthoods were also the theologians who worship and speculations kept the work of divine creation continuously alive. Some of these cults, particularly that of the sun god at Helipolis, attained to great power and influence, largely for political reasons, and dominated the thinking of the people and other priesthoods. This being the official religion had it's purpose in promoting the intervention of divine power for the benifit of the state with the Pharaoh as it's head. At the head of the political and social system we see Pharaoh, who owned all the land, and a group priests, and of suppressed nobels recieved their appointments from him, and the mass of the people were slaves.
The Egyptian temples to the gods clearly evolved from ritualistic requirements. Egyptian religion practices were not congregational. Only the Pharaoh and the priest could enter or view the sanctuary. A chosen few were admitted to the hypostyle hall, and the masses only into the open court, the girdle wall shut off the entire site from the outside world. The passage which became progressively mysterious from the large sunlit court to the small secret unseen sanctuary chamber were for the all those that learned in the mysteries of Egypt.......
One of the most obvious features people see in Orion is the three stars that make up what most people consider the belt of the giant.
Orion depicted in the stars holding the head of a lion.
The Great Sphinx of Giza
Below is a picture of the sphinx that has had it's place in the land of mysteries. Carved from the bedrock of the Giza plateau, the Sphinx is truly a mysterious marvel from the days of ancient Egypt. The Sphinx of Giza is a symbol that has represented the essence of Egypt for thousands of years. The body of a lion with the head of a king or god, the sphinx has come to symbolize strength and wisdom. The Sphinx is one of the best known monuments on Earth and dates back over 4,500 years to the Old Kingdom and the time of 4th Dynasty King, Khafre (2558-2532 BCE), builder of the second largest pyramid on the Giza plateau on Cairo’s outskirts. Scholar's say the head of the Sphinx probably depicts Khafre, while the body is that of a recumbent lion. The Sphinx lines up with the Pyramid of Khafre at the foot of its causeway. the Sphinx faces the rising sun.
The sphinx image also has been adopted into Masonic architecture. Among the Egyptians, sphinxes were placed at the entrance of the temple to guard the mysteries, by warning those who penetrated within, that they should conceal a knowledge of them from the uninitiated.
As a Masonic emblem, the sphinx has been adopted in its Egyptian character as a symbol of mystery, and as such often is found as a decoration sculptured in front of Masonic temples, or engraved at the head of Masonic documents.
Modern day Cairo at night
Many people are attracted to Egypt; it is one of the most visited countries in the world, next to the city of Jerusalem. Tourist today are visiting the monuments that were so long ago built, they stand as a ensign to many scientific, archeological and fraternal institutions. Certain personage's believe the pyramids held the greatest geometric form to understanding structure, and that only a few would come to knowledge of their existence and purpose. Certain societies believed in order to create such a massive structure one must have a certain knowledge of the universe and star system. The Pyramids have such a mystery; that they intrigued some of the greatest minds of the past and present.
When Egypt was preparing for the New Millennium many people around the world were waiting for something to take place in this ancient country. From former Presidents of the United States to Kings and Queens of Europe attended Egypt for this celebration. Many renown personages from around the world went to Egypt expecting some magical ancient vision from the past to give a glimpse of the mysteries containing the capping of the Great Pyramid of Giza. According to historians the missing cap stone represents an unfinished pyramid. Many believe that the capping would be the sign to brings restoration to the middle east, and that the restoring of the cap stone would complete the new world order for the entire world. There was a disagreement to what the cap stone looked like. Some say it was of pure crystal, (history scholars), others pure gold surrounded by a special casing.(Dr. Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of Supreme Council of Antiquities). What ever it was made of, they still could not come to agree that the replica made was exact. So the capping in 2000 did not take place. According to masonic legend as to the origin of the stone of foundation; it was of a triangular plate of gold, triangular in form, and had a name engraved upon it, which was placed upon a stone of cubic form with a casing around it. One thing the scholar's and Dr. Hawass did agree upon was who made it; Enoch same as Hannoch or Chanock, and that is was scared to the Sun god.
Over the ages many artifacts of Egypt have been distributed through out the world and can be seen in museums’ and in public surroundings in the United States, Europe, France, China, and Germany, Rome, Russia to name a few. All of these; either artifacts, writings, or statute's, have become a part of history that contains some importance to many organizations. Many have died to obtain some of Egypt's history. Often you see and hear how artifacts are smuggled into different parts of the world, some collectors’ paying millions for one piece of Egypt's past, also these items are in private collections. These objects were at most illegally purchased, which this leads one to believe that there is more to this then meets the eye! Egypt announced that it would be launching a campaign for the return of some of it most valuable artifacts. Dr. Zahi Hawass is now in the midst of talking to those in care of these priceless objects, of which countries I have mentioned above. For instance the most interesting piece is one already famous; thanks to Napoleon, being the key to deciphering the hieroglyphs, the famous Rosetta stone; 1,680 pound slab of black basalt with a triple inscription. Very important piece; especially because of the material of the rock which was black basalt. To Egyptians this was a type of touch stone, it comes from the Egyptian (bhnw): A dark gray or black dense to fine grained igneous rock that consists of basic plagioclase, augite, of a magnetite source. Its was known as a basanite touchstone, of power to raise up one out of the bottom of the pit; or as the Egyptian's called it the underworld; and with it one could obtain great power if it’s inscription could be understood and read properly. So this was the key to understanding the ancient past and with it many would learn the secrets of the ancient book of the dead, the book of Thoth, the hymns of Osiris, The book of embalmment, and the book of Gates. These writings supplied the deceased with a full description of the places through which he would pass and the name of the spirits they would encounter. The power of these text were words of power necessary for one to complete their journey. Literature written in demotic consists of works of magic; known as the power of the magicians. The book of the dead was regarded as a great amulet of great power; part of the text related to the judgment of Osiris. All of these were ancient magical texts used in some type of ritual which gave power of life to rule as a god to bring great prosperity, or on the other hand; it brought death by dismemberment to the one that betrayed the priests and their secrets.
The book of the dead
Another piece that is to be returned is the elaborate Zodiac ceiling painting from the Dendar Temple. The ancient name for zodiac is Mazzarah or Mazzaroth used only in the plural as a collection of constellations. To the Egyptians the Zodiac was the prime existence of their power; they were astrologers - (star gazers) to which they directed their buildings and military actions. They based their whole edifice on the way the celestial bodies revolved in the heavens.
The Egyptians believed there were certain constellations that formed their beginning's. Orion, the Pleiades, and a group of constellations known as the star of Rempha, which is the same as Chinun; meaning Cain, these are a certain group of celestial bodies that work together to form a perfect pentalpha that represented the Kingdom of Egypt to rule by divine right, as foretold in the heavens. Egypt was built according to the movement and positions of these stars; Orion/*Rigel, including the three stars in Orion's belt; which alignments are arranged with the ancient Giza Necropolis.
According to the Bible, Israel took up this star in the wilderness after coming out of Egypt, and made to themselves images that represented this figure in the heavens. Act 7:43

Ptah invented masonry
Ptah was the primordial mound, which lay beneath the earth. Consequently, Ptah-Seker became considered an underworld deity, and eventually, by the Middle Kingdom, become assimilated by Osiris, the lord of the underworld, occasionally being known as Ptah-Seker-Osiris.
The Memphis theology
Ptah was usually depicted as a bearded mummiform man, wearing a close fitting skull cap. Only his hands come out of his shroud, and he was usually shown holding a staff that incorporated the djed pillar, the ankh symbol and the was scepter.
The origin of Ptah's name is unclear, though some believe it to mean 'opener' or 'sculptor'. As a god of craftsmen, the later is probably correct. He was a patron of the arts, protector of stonecutters, sculptors, blacksmiths, architects, boat builders, artists and craftsmen.
The meaning of Osiris is: The eye of the throne, and the seat of power. It is also known as the eye of Horus, or the eye of Anubis, The eye of Ra, or the eye of Baal.
The Raising of Osiris
The raising of Osiris, was known as the djed column, this represented by one, or two pillars, sometimes four. The djed was symbolically Osiris the resurrected Sun God Horus. The djed was also associated with the bark of Ra in his journey across the celestrial sky and was the throne of Osiris
Osiris body was cut into fourteen pieces, and thrown into the Nile. Isis his wife/sister found the parts, and called upon Thoth the god of magic, and Anubis the god of the dead to help her conceal his body.After his death the dejd became Osiris backbone/spinal cord of the god symbolically “RAISED”, and a flame was set up in memory of his dismemberment.
Their fetish was the djed, and they named their city after it, "Djedu". As the popularity of Osiris grew, so did the djed's appearance in art, especially in tombs. The djed was often painted on the bottom of coffins where the deceased's backbone would rest. The djed was also often created as an amulet of stability and regenerative power, also it became the Acacia tree in which Osiris was concealed and buried. The symbol of the djed was the ancient symbol known as samekh. The Greeks used it for XI and a simplified variation of it for chi (X).

The Egyptians believed it gave one power to reconstitute the body to become a perfect soul. The Djed Pillar Festival was a cultic celebration of the symbol and its powers. This identified the person with the king of the underworld, Osiris. (It was also known that this djed respesented a great Assyarian King whose top was among the thick boughs that Pharaoh compared himself to). This reference can be found in the Bible, (Ezekiel chapter 31). The festival of the djed was held annually in Egypt and was a time of great spiritual refreshment for the people. The Column became the principle of renewal, which symbolized sovereignty. The priests raised the djed pillar on the first day of shemu (the season of harvest on the Nile). The people then paid homage to the symbol and conducted a mock battle between good and evil. Oxen were driven around the walls of the capital, honoring the founding of the original capital, Memphis. It also acts as a sign of stability for the deceased' journey into the afterlife. This was to resemble; to perform a mystical transformation that became the prototype of the Egyptian funerary tradition.
The djed was raised in crucial times of a transition of power, between the great cycles of the planets. Invoking MAAT (light, stability to dissipate ISFET (darkness, chaos). during the rite of the winter solstice, one of the high points is the raising of the djed pillar by the MAOU (pontiff of Heliopolis). Lying on the ground the djed represented death, it's raising is the movement of resurrection.

Ezekiel 29, 1-3 - In the tenth year, in the tenth month, in the twelfth day of the month, the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set the face against Pharaoh King of Egypt, and prophesy against him, and against all Egypt: Speak, and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee Pharaoh King of Egypt, the great dragon that liet in the midst of his rivers, which hath said, my rivers are mine own, and I have made them for myself. Psalms 87:4 - I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me: Behold Philistia and Tyre with Ethiopia; this man was born there. Psalms 89:10 - Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with a strong arm. Isaiah 51:9,10 - Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab and wounded the dragon? Art thou not it which hath dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; that hath made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over? Revelation 13, 1-12 - And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
"What does Egypt and Freemasonry have in common?"
To the general public, mason's are bricklayer's with skills that work in stone, philanthropists who build hospitals, even funny old men who lead parades. All true. But the Secret World of American Freemasonry exposes a deeper understanding of this ancient order, and the questions most masons would prefer left unanswered. First and foremost: What is the great light in Freemasonry? Is it the Holy Bible or is it a false light? For even Satan himself is transformed into a angel of light.
Why the secrecy? What is there to hide? If, as stated in masons doctrine, the principle activity of the order is philanthropy, why keep a veil over it. If this veil of secrecy is to be so protected by it's members in the higher degree's because it only makes a good man better. Than why not share it's secrets with the whole world, so why then keep a veil over it? And is it true that members who betray the order's secrecy are condemned to torture and death, as stated in doctrine? Why do prominent masons deny the order's obviously anti-Christian teachings and rituals? And finally, must one be a mason to obtain power in today's society? See page: America Masonic Secret History
