KEMET THEOLOGY AND CHRISTIAN DOGMA


Any well read person would see the input of Kemetic/Egyptian theology into Christian dogma although believers generally tend to deny any plausible logical deduction that may unseat the foundation of their respective religions. But the facts still remain steadfast that Christianity is an offshoot of Nile Valley Spirituality. On top of the many similarities and shared dogmas between Kemetic theology and Christianity, the two belief systems are allegorically connected. For instance, Kemetic magical numbers such as 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, and 12 do not only represent simple computation but they also symbolically reflect philosophy, ontology and cosmology as related to human nature and truth.

For example, 3 represents the manifestation of Asar (Osiris) as a triad representing the Morning Sun, the Evening Sun, and the Night Sun. The triad manifestations in Christianity, of course, are the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit that constitute the Trinity. Christians believe that Christ rose from the dead three days after he was dead and buried. In many traditional African societies, the accused or the sickly invokes the name of God three times in order to absolve him or herself from his/her crime or be cured from ill health. Among the Yoruba a nursing mother and child pass three times through sacred dripping water poured on top of the thatched roof of their house. In Ethiopia, especially in the areas of Tigrigna and Amharic speakers, if a female baby is born the women gathered to celebrate and welcome the newly born ululate three times.

Four (4) represents the four sons of Horus or the grandsons of Asar, and in turn, the four cardinal points of East, West, North, and South. Depicted like the pharaohs, Asar holds in his hands four symbols of stability, life, serenity, and power (dominion). Moreover, in Kemetic astrology, we encounter the four gods of Amset (man), Hapi (ape), Tuamutef (jackal) and Gebhsennuf (hawk) which became the Four Beasts of lion, calf, man, and eagle in Christianity (Book of Revelation). 7 Kemetic mythologies further symbolize ideas such as the Four Rejoicing Ones, Four Nemset Vases, Four Faces, Four gods etc. In many traditional African societies the Four Elements that characterize human nature are the body, the soul, the double, and the shadow.

The number 5 was associated with sacrifice. According to classical historians Asar was born on the first of the five epagomenal days of the Kemetic year and as per Biblical prophesy Christ was to be born five and half days (interpreted as 5,500 years) after Adam and was to be sacrificed in order to cleanse humanity from its sins, very much like the role of Asar. The five times of incense in Christian orthodoxy where the priest and the deacon burn incense and go around the altar three times. The five pillars and five prayers per day of Islam most likely correspond to the incense ritual of Christianity.

Seven (7) represents completion in Kemet. After a child was born, it was in the Egyptian tradition to wash the baby with water or oil and the latter signifies the Seven Holy Oils used in the Opening of the Mouth Ceremony. Likewise after a male child is born in Ethiopia (especially in the central and northern regions) the women ululate seven times. The nursing Yoruba woman mentioned earlier would perform the three times walk seven days after her child is born. In the Book of Gates there are the symbolic seven stands for seven gods. Moreover, in Kemetic theology we come across the Seven Hathors, the Seven Arits, the Seven Cows, the Seven Uraei, the Seven Spirits, and the Seven-headed Serpent.

In almost similar fashion, seven is prefixed with either animals or spirits in the Book of Revelation. Nowadays, humanity in general is stuck in the number 7 even if the subject does not logically represent seven: the seven wonders of the world, the seven seas, the Group of Seven etc or in more practical terms the seven days of the week or the seven sounds (vowels) of each Ethiopian character of the alphabet. The Muslims during pilgrimage walk seven times around the Kaaba and the Luminaries, by the same token, believe in the Seven Chakras (Sanskrit) or energy points of the human body and they assemble in Kemet and walk around the pyramid seven times.

Nine (9) also represents completeness and finality in Kemetic philosophy. The company of the Gods contained nine members and during judgment day, thus, Asar was accompanied by nine gods who stand on the nine steps that lead to the pedestal where Asar is seated on a chair. Moreover, we have Nine Mourners, Nine Watchers, Nine Task-masters, and Nine Holders of the Rope for measuring land. In most African societies nine symbolizes sacredness and to be sure there are the most revered Nine Saints in Ethiopia.

Twelve was essentially the 12 points of the Zodiac in Kemetic astronomy but later the Kemeytu incorporated the calculations of lunar movements. Hence 1230= 360 plus 5 days for harvest would be 365 days, the calendar that all of us use to this day. In fact, like the KMT/Egyptian or Coptic calendar, the Ethiopian Calendar has 1230 days plus five or epagomenal days. By the same token, the Jewish calendar known as Sod ha-ibbur is a derivation of the Kemetic system of intercalating the solar and lunar cycles. In the Book Am-Tuat the Kemeytu have illustrations of 12 serpents. In Christianity, the 12 meant the twelve Apostles as astronomers did for 12 months. In most African societies the kings council or judges were 12 in number.

So, why are there 7 colours in the rainbow and 7 tones in the octave?

I'm not greatly knowledgable with numerology other than the golden number and ratio 1.61803... of which was included within the construct of the Great Khufu Pyramid (Golden pyramid)

African Diaspora: Freemasonry: Ancient Afrikan/ Kemetic/ Egyptian communal Way of Life and Being


The purpose of this article is to examine the evolution of Freemasonry, its purpose, education process and communal Way of Life.

At the outset, one cannot talk about the origin of Freemasonry; the discussion must focus on the evolution of this system and the unique, ORI-gin-al Ancient Afrikan/Kemetic/Egyptian Way of Life.

The word "free" means "without hinderance"; the word "mason" refers to "one who builds, a bricklayer." As such, Freemasonry is that system, craft or art of building, not a physical building but building spiritual, an edifice within the human being. The ancient Kemites/Afrikans/Egyptians refer to this spiritual concept as the "Temple in Man."

In addition, one must reject the misnomer that has been bandied about for untold centuries known as the "Mystery System" or the "Egyptian Mysteries." The fact of the matter is that if someone invents something, then how is that invention a mystery to the inventor? The invention is only a 'mystery' to the second-third party/onlooker/visitor/ outsider.

The Ancient Kemites/Afrikans/Egyptians never called their system the "Mystery System." The Greeks (world's first Europeans) who went to Kemet to study at the Temple of Waset (world's first university) in the B.C. era called this Afrikan/Kemitic system the "Egyptian Mysteries" because it was a 'mystery' to them, not the Kemites.

Afrikan peoples are the world's original peoples with original ideas and the world's original master-thinkers and teachers. This ancient Egyptian spiritual system evolved over 1,200 years and/or 50 generations. This system and way of life predates the highly organized groups of the Roman Empire or the Roman Collegia, the French Masons of the 17th - 18th century A.D. and the Masonic lodges in the early American colonies.

The Ancient Kemites are the First to develop a communal way of life and being based on a moral code of ethics and human behavior with which to live by. These moral code of ethics existed thousands of years before the Holy Qur'an or Holy Bible. Hence, it is no small wonder that Jesus "The Christ" or "the anointed One" left home at age thirteen "to be about his Father's business" and went to study these ancient Kemetic/Afrikan/Egyptian moral code of ethics at the Temple of Waset. Therefore, the teachings of Jesus "The Christ" came out of ancient Kemet/Afrika/Egypt.

The Holy Bible also stated in Acts 7:22 that Moses, an original Afrikan-Black man, "was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was mighty in words and deeds." Therefore, the teachings of Moses, the original Afrikan-Black man, including his so-called Ten Commandments, came out of the moral code of ethics in ancient Kemet/Egypt.

During this ancient period, Afrika was known as the "land of the spiritual people" under this Masonic belief system and communal way of life and being.

So what does Freemasonry mean? It "is a system of morality and spiritual advancement"; it is a "science which is engaged in divine truth and employs symbolism as its method of instruction"; it seeks to erect "the human society based on the principles of truth, justice and morality." Freemasonry means that before a person can become a Freemason, he must first be a "freeman"; a slave cannot be a mason - such a person must not be a slave to lust and avarice; such a person must not be a slave to chaos, conflict or confusion. Freemasonry deals with spiritual liberation, not physical emancipation.

Freemasonry deals with balance, order and justice in everyday life and human interaction - it is a way of life 24/7/365. It is a system of morality that is veiled/shrouded in allegory and illustrated by symbols. The use of this original, ancient Kemetic allegory was to be later called "parables" under the derived Christian religious belief system.

The spiritual Way of Life in ancient Kemet was directly related/connected to nature, cosmos, universe and a spiritual God-force, Amun-Ra. Amuna-Ra (A-MAN : the RA'S TA MAN) is the original Afrikan spiritual God-force whose birthday was celebrated on 25 December in ancient Kemet, 4,100 years before that of Jesus "The Christ" who was not born on that date.

This Ancient Afrikan/Kemetic spiritual Way of Life and being was holistic in that the Pharaoh was also the high priest; in today's religious way of life, a separation of church and state exists.

In Ancient Kemet, balance, order and harmony or the system of Ma'at existed; in today's world, the system of Isfet exits in which chaos, conflict and confusion are omnipresent - a system of full-blown European control and supremacy.

Freemasonry is "the activity of closely untied men (secret society) who work for the welfare of humankind, striving morally to ennoble themselves and others and thereby to bring about a universal league of humankind." The Masonic belief is in One God; man is immortal; character determines destiny; moreover, it is pivoted on the principle of the Brotherhood of Man and a We communal value system and a way of life and being. The human being is central or the spinal cord of all such existence.

The original concept of One God or Monotheism has nothing whatsoever to do with Christianity. It was first introduced in Kemet during the 25th Dynasty 1270 B.C. by Pharaoh Akhnaton. At this time, this Pharaoh had a HighPriest named Moses. Therefore, the derived 1st Commandment of Moses: "Thou shalt have no other Gods before me" came directly out of the original ancient Kemeti/Egyptian/ Afrikan "Forty-two Negative Confessions," not from Mount Sinai.

The fact of the matter is that Moses, the original Afrikan-Black man, married an Ethiopian woman named Zipporah; they had two sons named Gershom and Elieyer. (FATHER MOSES & ZIPPO-RA)

The purpose of education under Freemasonry was "to lead humankind to freedom and enlightenment, to assist in elevating the moral and intellectual level of society, to gain knowledge, to bring ideas into circulation and to cause the mind of youths to grow and bear fruit." The system of education worked for human betterment - materially, morally and spiritually.

Freemasonry seeks "to bring humankind from darkness to light and to form mankind into a great redemptive brotherhood." The endemic principle of Freemasonry is to achieve human perfectibility. The principles to achieve this genre of communal way of life and being 24/7/365 are truth, justice, balance, order, compassion, harmony and reciprocity.

In today's world, when a person lives by these same ancient Afrikan/Kemetic Masonic principles on a daily basis, such a person is called a "good citizen." These principles are directly linked to the education system. The ancient Kemetic education system had three grades/levels of students: (1) the mortals (2) the intelligences and (3) the sons of light (level of spiritual consciousness).

The most important objective of this system was the deification of man; the soul of man could become godlike in communication with the Gods. The ultimate aim of Kemetic education was for the Neophyte to become "one with God" or "become like God." Centuries later in the A.D. era, the world was told that man was made in the image and likeness of God as one of the founding tenets/pillars of Christianity's derived religious belief system.

The aim of education was achieved through the development of virtue - a person was seen as being spiritual in a finite human body. It is this specific, inherent spiritual component that is non-existent in Afrikan people's education system - hence, the omnipresence of Isfet.

At this crucial juncture, it is vital to insert that the foundations of governance in the United States is based on and derived from, the original spiritual belief system of ancient Kemet/Egypt, especially the Role of Numbers 7 and 13 and the use of symbols.

By way of elucidation, the spiritual significance of number 7 is that it denotes completion, while 13 denotes Transformation, Resurrection, New Life and Rebirth.(RA-BIRTH!)

Now, the United States achieved its independence on 4 July 1776. The choice of the month of July by the European founding fathers of the United States denotes that in July (7th month of the year), they completed their armed revolution/struggle for independence from Euro-colonial Britain. The choice of the 4th of July denotes that on that day, the United States was transformed from a colony of Britain to a sovereign independent nation-state; in addition, the 4th July falls within the summer solstice of ancient Kemet/Egypt which runs/lasts from 21 June - 4 July, a period of 13 days. It is no accident, therefore, that the European founding fathers of the United States specifically choose this day to coincide with the spiritual belief system/blessing/protection/guidance of ancient Kemet. Moreover, the choice of 1776 denotes that 7 plus 6 also equals 13. So the European founding fathers of the United States purposely veiled/shrouded their new State in the swaddling clothes of ancient Kemet/Egypt.

In addition, the 13th amendment of the U.S. constitution freed the slaves; this denotes that this amendment gave the slaves a "new life" as freed men; when the United States achieved its independence, there were only 13 colonies - accident? This denotes that there was a "rebirth" in this former colony of Britain.

Furthermore, the most powerful political weapon in the armory of the United States, namely, the official seal of the government, has 13 layers - accident? The most powerful economic weapon in the armory of the United States, the one dollar bill, bears a picture of the ancient Kemetic/Egyptian pyramid with 13 layers; there is also the eye of the Kemetic God Heru (called Horus by the Greeks and Jesus by Christians) as the all-seeing eye for protection -accident?

In terms of symbols, there is a stone monument in Washington, D.C. mistakenly called the "Washington monument." Now, this monument has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the European founding father of the United States, George Washington. This stone monument is directly connected/related to the ancient Kemetic/Egyptian spiritual phenomenon known as the "Osirian Drama."

In other words, in keeping with the ancient Kemetic/Egyptian spiritual belief system, the Washington monument denotes that even though President George Washington is physically dead, he is still spiritually alive to govern and oversee the nation ad infinitum - the lifetime of stone is infinite.

In terms of symbols, the colors red, white and blue of the US flag that symbolizes the American sign of global power and control are derived from the original ancient Kemetic/Egyptian Red Crown of the South, White Crown of the North and the Blue Crown of War that symbolized the Masonic system of governance, communal way of life and being as a result of the unification of Upper and Lower Kemet/Egypt by Pharaoh Narmer in 3200 B.C. The ideas of "government of the people, by the people and for the people" also came out of this ancient system and not from the thought process of President Thomas Jefferson. These original ideas/ideals came out of the system of governance and decision-making called Afrikan Communalism in ancient Kemet.

The Greeks who were studying at the Temple of Waset at that time in the B.C. era, renamed this system "Demos" from which is derived the modern A.D. concept Democracy.

In addition, the U.S. constitutional mandate/guarantee that each individual "has the inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" is ancient Kemetic in origin.

This Ancient Kemetic/Egyptian/United States direct connection exists because all the founding fathers of the United States were masons steeped in the spiritual teachings and belief system of ancient Kemet. They are President George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Munroe, Andrew Jackson, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, William McKinely, Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, Warren G. Harding, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Trueman and Gerard R. Ford.

In addition, about one-third of the 56 signatories of the American Declaration of Independence were masons, including John Hancock, Lyman Hall, Benjamin Franklin and Robert Paine.

Truth be told: These Europeans have deliberately, viciously and completely dehumanized, contaminated and fleeced this original ancient Kemetic/Egyptian system of governance, spiritual belief value system, communal way of life and being in order to maintain, ossify and consolidate their global power control and dominance under the rubric of such geopolitical code words/slogans as "illuminati," "Great Western Design," "Manifest Destiny," "La Mission civilisatrice," "the white man's burden," "liberty, justice and fraternity," "making the world safe for democracy," "Atlantic Charter," "New World Order," cum "Third Reich," via Mein Kempf, "Cold War," "War on Terrorism" per "USA Patriot Act," and finally "Globalization," that is making the global economy safe for American Trans National Enterprises (TNE's) and free movement and liberalization of international capitol.

Truth be Told: The ancient, original Kemetic/Afrikan/Egyptian Freemasonry is the system of governance and We communal way of life and being of yesterday and tomorrow; the derived European-capitalist system of governance and Me individual way of life ad being is only the global system of today.

Ancient Kemet will rise again!

In this episode of Kemetic Legacy Today,

Co-Hosts Anika and Jabari Osaze discuss "living the legacy" with 5 Kemetic priestesses.

Why choose Kemetic spirituality?

What does practicing the way of Kemet look like in their modern, day-to-day lives?

The priestesses conduct a sacred ceremony call "the Ankh Ceremony" and maintain an alter on set.

Kemetic Legacy Today is a weekly, hour-long TV show produced by the Center for the Restoration of Ma'at


(www.centerformaat.com).





In summary: The 7 principles of Ma'at

1.Truth
2.Justice
3.Balance
4.Order
5.Reciprocity
6.Harmony
7.Righteousness


#1: The one and the many. The ancient Khamites believed in one divine force which differentiated itself into an array of divine principles

#2: The force from within. The ancient Khamites believed that the divine force existed in all things. Through the practice of spiritual discipline and study the divine force could be refined creating the divine being.

#3: The blessings in balance. The ancient Khamites often used the principal of balance(Ma'at) when describing the concept of spiritual refinement

#4: Tools to the path of spiritual development include prayer, ritual/ceremony, study(often in allegory) and meditation.

#5: Sacred Myth~Sacred Message. Myth is not a simple description of things not understood by the primitive minds. Myth is not that which is not true but that which is always true. History is that which as once true.

#6: The sacred in symbolism. Similar to the Heru em Aket, deep spiritual meaning is often ensconced into symbol. These symbols were perceived very differently by the "initiated" than by the general public.

#7: The final judgement. In the end we are all judged by our deeds.
