THE END OF THE WORLD By Andre Austin The Bible’s description of how the world will end has many parallels to the Egyptian theory of how the world ends too. First I will quote from Plutarch’s Isis and Osiris then go back into the bible and see if it fits. “ The sistrum (rattle) also makes it clear that all things in existence need to be shaken, or rattled about, and never to cease from motion but, as it were, to be waked up and agitated when they grow drowsy and torpid. They say they avert and repel typhoon/Satan by means of the sistrums, indicating thereby that when destruction constricts and check nature generation releases and arouses it by means of motion. The upper part of the sistrum is circular and its circumference contains the four things that are shaken; for that part of the world which undergoes reprodution and destruction is contained underneath the orb of the moon, and all things in it are subjected to motion and to change through four elements: fire, earth, water and air. At the top of the circumference of the sistrum they construct the figure of a cat with a human face, and at the bottom, below the things that are shaken, the face of Isis on one side, and on the other the face of nephthys. By these faces they symbolize birth and death, for these are the changes and movements of the elements; and by the cat they symbolize the moon because of the varied coloring, nocturnal activity and fecundity of the animal. For the cat is said to bring forth…all 28, the number also of the moon’s illumination. Perhaps, however, this may seem mythical. But the pupils in the eye of the cat appear to grow large and round at the time of the full moon, and to become thin and narrow at the time of the wanings of that heavenly body. By the human features of the cat is indicated the intelligence and the reason that guides the changes of the moon”. To put the matter briefly, it is not right to believe that water or the sun or the earth or sky is Osiris or Isis” page 149-151 Jesus giving a speech as he sat upon the Mount of Olives was asked what signs shall be for the end of times. I will excerpt this speech where the portions are relevant to Plutarch lessons he wrote down from Egyptian priest. For such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet… For in those days shall be affliction such as was not from the beginning of the creation which created unto this time, neither shall be. But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light. And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven” Mark chapter 13 John was slick in attempting to make it appear that the speech in Chapter 13 was at a different location in chapter 14. Or he may have been just copying down an earlier version Jesus continues to speak about the end of times at Gethsemane. And what a coincidence he “Findeth them sleeping”(14:37) “And when he returned, he found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy” Mark 14:40. This is too much of a coincidence with Plutarch giving the allegory of the cat nocturnal activity (Jesus was talking at night Mark 14:27)and having large eyes (Mark 14:40). And we can’t forget the parallel statements about the Sun and moon. Jesus also talked about Judas plotting to kill him. This would relate to the writings of Plutarch talking about death and rebirth. Too much of a coincidence. This is yet another parable of Jesus that is connected to the Egyptian Gospels.
