    GNOSTIC GOSPELS

    Gnostic meant attaining higger spritualty through knowledge.

    If the New testament accounts could support a range of interpretations, why did orthodox Christians in the secound century insist on a literal view of resurrection and reject all others as heretical? I suggest that we cannot answer this question adequately as long as we consider the doctrine only in terms of its religious content. But when we examine its practical effect on the Christian movement, we can see, paradoxically, that the doctrine of bodily resurrection also serves an essential political function: it legitimizes the authority of certain MEN who claim to exercise exclusive leadership over the churches as the successors of the apostle Peter. From the second century, the doctrine has served to validate the apostolic succession of bishops, the basis of papal authority to this day.The Gnostic called the Bishops and deacons “waterless Canals”. They opposed the development of church hierarchy.

    The Gnostic refuted with the Catholic church over the equality of Men and women and the literal view over the resurrection. The Catholic saw their religion as a means to subvert power over women.The Catholic and orthodox saw god is only knowable by faith. They argue that , if the principles of demonstration\became known to us through experience derived from the senses. This, however, is false; and even if it were true, god could be known from his sensible effects.[some Gnostics say they derived gnosis from their own experience] Perhaps when the Bible said “we walk by faith (unknown) not by sight (knowledge)” was an insertion to attack the Gnostic. If the orthodox failed to suppress the Gnostic they would have never grew. The Gnostic also claimed God was both male and female because he created Adam and Eve in his image. We know Eve was made from Adam. God would be limited if he was just one but he was at least 2 in one some say three. The Catholics failed to understand that their name refers to God as male/Cat and Hathor/female which also symbolic of the sun and moon which is the 2 keys of Peter Gold/sun and silver/moon. But they rejected this in order to have power over women. They say Catholic means Universal. That’s true. But it also means the Sun/male and the Moon/female which the Egyptians passed to the Gnostic.

    Bishops and priests were original married 1 timothy 3:2. Their mythical first Pope derived from the Egyptian Pet/Peter had kids. But now you can’t marry. Why? When priests were married, they naturally tried to pass on church property to their sons. They could do this legally if their sons became priests; therefore one of the first steps of the reform party, when it acquired power, was to forbid the ordination of priests sons. And all of that talk of women being silent in church had no religious bases but pure politics

    Another Gnostic writing, called the great Announcement, quoted by Hippolytus in his Refutation of all heresies, explains the origin of the universe as follows: From the power of Silence appeared a great power, the Mind of the Universe, which manages all things, and is a male…the other…a great intelligence is a female which produces all things. Following the gender of the greek words for mind Nous-masculine and intelligence epinoia-feminine, these powers , joined in union (Universe). Proponents of these diverse views agreed that the divine is to be understood in terms of a harmonious, dynamic relationship of opposites. Gnostic saw catholic as union or two pyramids united together as sunrise=sun/sunset=moon. Interesting is the Egyptian Peter is the rock foundation of heaven holding up heaven with two pyramid pillars; the obvious two skelton keys of the NT Peter. As a matter of fact if you look at the Vatican or papal crest, you will see that the dome of st peter’s basilica and the crossed keys of peter also form the skull and crossbones. The Egyptian Peter keys are two Pyramids ; a greek word for martyr/witness. So we have the Egyptian Jesus/Horus and Osiris dying at a pyramid when the sun crosses through the pyramid. The NT Peter is killed upside down like a pyramid forming a V. We have the Mason Hiram/Osiris dying at king Solomon’s temple/pyramid too. Solomon has the Egyptian attributes of Ptah and Thoth. Ptah a craftman passing on secret wisdom for Children of the sun to build pyramids.

    The Gnostics also taught that the Kingdom of God is within you. Kingdom symbolizes a state of transformed consciouness. The Kingdom within you through internal transformation. They say the lamp of the body is the mind; and the light of the lamp is within you.So the kingdom was a state of mind/heart within you the spirit of you not in some Judgement day. When the bible talks of the end of the world, this is a mistranslation. We are not facing the end of the world, but the end of age, the 2,160 years of the Pisces. The 12 Zodiac signs change every two thousand plus years. “One of the recently discovered sayings of Christ (In the Gospel of Thomas) parallels Akhnaton’s utterances. ‘Ye ask, it runs who are those that draw us to the kingdom if the kingdom is in heaven? The fowls of the air [Above], and all the beasts that are under the earth [below] or upon the earth, and the fishes in the sea, these are they which draw you, and the Kingdom is within you’-The life and times of Akhnaton By Arthur Weigall p.108 Irenaes says the true church was like a “pillar and ground”. Socrates was killed for teaching what was above and below. Plato associated heaven with two pyramids one pointing up/above the other down/below.This links himself with the Memphite theology of the Egyptians.

    Luke 17:21 associates the Kingdom within you too.

    In conclusion I see the Bible being tampered with for political gain of men trying to control the masses with “Paul’s invention, his device for establishing priestly tyranny”-so says Friedrich Nietzsche. But Paul’s writings were tampered with after his death if he was a real person. Paul claims in Acts to be like Hermes/thoth the inventor of wisdom and this little admission connents him with Egyptian priest through Gnostic writings and plato.

    Plato asserted that Knowledge was perception (Eyes). The Bible rejected Knowledge by saying we walk by faith not by sight. But The Bible tells you to seek (see) for knowledge. That knowning the truth sets you free. The eye in Egypt symbolizes health and knowledge. Luke 11:33-34 copied this from Egypt. Akhnaton would say “Eyes have life at sight of thy beauty; hearts have health when the aton shines” This is why after masons get their last degree they are called shriners. After taking many steps/degrees up the mountain/pyramid they connect with the eye/sun/knowledges at the top and become what the Egyptian book of dead calls “the shining ones”.
    The newly emerging schools of hermetic, Neo-Platonic and Gnostic thought in Europe were loosely based on the Nile valley principles of education, which were designed to awaken within an individual “knowledge of self”. This knowledge led to an awareness of the powers of god which exist within man, as expressed in the myths of Osiris and Horus. This philosophy was made into a direct conflict with false Bible writers of Christianity, which incorrectly taught literally versions that mankind was conceived in sin and salvation could only be gained through Jesus, the Pope or other accepted intermediaries. But like I said the symbolic Jesus taught that the Kingdom was within you. But we had politicians in Rome and elsewhere who deviated from the original teachings from Egypt.In Egypt Isis was a priest and women played significant roles in their religious ceremonies. The subjugation of women isn’t a religious thing but coming from the minds of Western fools.

    KNOWLEDGE OF SELF: key to salvation
    By Andre Austin

    “My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge” Hosea 4:6

    “Nay then Prometheus, art thou ignorant
    words are physicians to a wrath sick soul?- Aeschylus

    “Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself”-Jesus Luke4:23

    “To him belongs the proverb Know thyself”-Thales

    “The word of life” 1John 1:1

    “The Wisdom of God in healing man has applied himself to his cure” St Augustine

    In Egypt at the library of Alexandra bore the inscription of “Remedies for the soul”. Diodorus 1:49 wrote: “Next comes the sacred library, which bears the inscription ‘healing-place of the soul”. The magnificent Historian Plutarch was nicknamed “physician of the soul” because of his prolific writings. A similar term is said to have been placed over the collection of papyri in the “house of Seti” at Thebes. So I would draw an inference that books would be considered a healing, remedy or cure for the souls who desire to go to heaven. The Egyptians also wrote on their temples: “Man, know thyself”. Diogenes Laertius states “To (Thales) belongs the proverb “know thyself”. But Thales leant it in Egypt. Jesus stated that leaves were a healing for the souls in Revelation. And I shall prove that these leaves were the books of Hermes. The inscription at the Egyptian library ties in neatly with a hymn to Amen. The hymn states in part:

    “He (i.e. Amen) driveth away evils and scattereth diseases.
    He is the physician who healeth the eye without medicaments…
    He saveth a man from what is his lot at the dictates of his heart (mind)”

    The tongue/leaf of Amen reproduces that which the heart has thought out. Proverbs 15:4 called the tongue a tree of life.

    Proverbs 12: 18 had it correct when it stated “The tongue of the wise is healing”. Jesus describe a leaf from the tree of life in heaven as a healing (Rev 22:2). Plutarch in his essay on Isis and Osiris clearly states that the symbol of the Egyptian tongue was a leaf. Keep on reading on and see how I tie in Christianity with the Egyptian religion. And when I looked up the word healing in the Strongs concondance proverbs 12:18 didn’t show up. I wonder why ? The proposition that Solomon was Egyptian has increased with proving his proverbs were of Egyptian origin.

    Knowledge of Gods wisdom in Christianity was also connected to the “ways of Maat”. In Egyptian book of the dead there was two ways of light and darkness. Proverbs 4:10-13 called it the good and evil way. The way of wisdom leads directly to life in Proverbs.

    Early Church father. Irenaeus said the Gnostics taught that spiritual man is redeemed by means of knowledge. The Bible seems to be saying the same thing. Jesus healed the sick with his hand and word of his mouth. A woman was sick with fever and he touched her with his hand (Matthew 8: 14-15). But when “a man was possessed with devils he cast out the spirits with his word”. Jesus just said “Go” (E.A Wallis Budge states: The Gnostic relied on precisely the same things to help his soul into heaven. But his priest helped him materially by simplifying the intricate Egyptian system of magical figures and symbols and texts, and condensing their powers into a single word, or name or figure or symbol” see The Mummy p328) and the man was healed. This makes me wonder about the Tree of life in Revelations 22 were the leaves are a healing. In Egypt a leaf was symbolic of a tongue where Thoth wrote your own words down which would reward you with heaven or hell. I believe those leaves were in reference to the “Book of life” and other books for souls to read when the went to heaven. We go to the Webster dictionary and find that leaves meant a sheet of paper.

    Revelations 20: 12-13 states “And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books”. According to Gerald Massey “When the mummy (dead) was deposited in the chest of the living. A copy of the second breath (life) was placed in his pillow, and the leaves of the book of life were the lining of his coffin. In the Egyptian book of the dead (actually the book coming forth by day) the deceased makes his way from stage to stage of his progress by what he knows.

    An Egyptian group known as Essenes or Therapeutate. They were also connected with Gnostic who taught that the religion of Christianity was wrongly held as history when it was symbolic. This symbolism was a mystery system where only accessible to those who “know” the hidden meaning. Paul was a Gnostic but after he died they interpolated their doctrines. They called Jesus the Nazarene (Matthew 2:23). It is a mistake to think Nazarene was a geographical location. The Nazarenes were one of many Gnostic sects. Many deep religious readers know the strong resemblance between Hermeticism/Thoth, the theology of the gospel of St John, and some of St Paul letters. It’s commonly known that three schools of thought emerged from the debris of the Egyptian religion were Heremeticists, Neo-Platonists and Gnostics. I know when felix had Paul on trial they refered to him as “ringleader of the sect of the Nazoreans” Acts 24:5 . This sect was linked to a sect called “The way” Acts 24: 14 ; 22. The Essenes had sacred books called “The Way”. The Egyptian book of the dead talks about “the way” as a process of going to heaven.

    I’m trying to figure it out and connect the Book of life with knowledge of words, which provide healing. Jesus laid it all out in Matthew 13.

    Because knowledge of the mysteries
    Of the kingdom of heaven has been granted…

    This is why I speak (or saying words) to them in parables…

    Isaiah’s prophecy is fulfilled

    Gross is the heart of this people,
    They will hardly hear with their ears..

    And hear with their ears
    And understand with their heart and be
    Converted,
    And I heal them…

    Hear then the parable of the sower. The seed
    Sown on the path is the one who hears the word
    Of the kingdom”.

    Diogenes Laertius speaks of Zeno (333Bc-261BC) in his essay. First we should note that Paul quotes from the fifth line of Aratus’s Phaenomena in Acts 17: 28. Aratus was in the same philosophers club with Zeno. Diogenes states Zeno was “Swarthy-hence some called him an Egyptian vine-branch”. Zeno said a couple of things that run familiar with Matthew 13. For example: “We should exercise our mind in disposing to advantage of what we hear, instead of, as it were, tasting a well cooked dish or well dressed meal” and again “The reason why we have two ears and only one mouth is that we may listen more and talk the less”. And lastly “The man capable of giving a proper hearing to what is said and profiting by it was superior to him who discovers everything himself”. Now that’s a Gnostic concept of figuring things out within yourself.

    In Egypt “There took shape in the heart, there took shape on the tongue/word the form of Atum. For the very great one is Ptah, who gave life to all through his heart and through his tongue/word, in which Horus had taken shape as Ptah, in which Thoth had taken shape as Ptah”. This Memphite theology Father Boylan hasten to deny it, looks remarkably like the Platonic and Christian logos, the ‘Word’.

    “This was the same as John says that “In the beginning was the word and the word was with god and the word was god” . The only problem was that early Christian scribes added, “The word became flesh”. It was never flesh it was always spiritual. If its false then why the difference in treating a physically sick with a spiritual sick. The physical sick got hands the other the word. The word was always spirit. This is why you have to worship in spirit and in truth. The gospel writers didn’t understand the abstract teachings of Gnosticism and neither did the masses who saw nothing beyond the demiurge.

    The Essence according to Plato was colorless, formless and visible only to the mind or higher reason like in trances. This same definition can be applied to Amen who in Egypt meant hidden truth. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states, “Jesus Christ himself is the Amen. He is the definitive Amen of the fathers love for us”.

    There is no diffirence between the Book of life and “Remedies of the soul” inscribe at the library of Alexandra. Socrates and Plato had a famous saying of “Know thy self”, which was the key to salvation. “Gnosis could translate as “insight”, for gnosis involves the intuitive process of knowning oneself”See Black Athena The Egyptian heaven where souls passed from stage to stage is connected with revelations other books being opened up besides the book of life. The leaves that provided healing in Revelation 22 was referring to words from a person mouth or words colleted to form books.


    Notes:
    According to George G.M James Stolen Legacy “The Egyptian mystery system was coextensive with the needs of the highest civilization of the ancient world. Its text books consisted of:
    (1) The 42 books of Hermes
    (2) The Therapeutic use of the seven liberal arts, for the cure of man’s soul. And if you read Plutarch’s Isis And Osiris [375] you will see how Plutarch the meaning of Essence with understanding and intelligence. The sect of the Essence was called Therapeutic also. Therefore learning was connected to healing. Also Philo an Egyptian historian who lived durning the time of Jesus states: “They (Essenes) have become in highest degree servants of God, not by sacrificing animals, but by deeming it right to render their minds holy”. This would also fit well with the Gnostic and Jesus leaves (words, books) of healing he talks about in Revelation.


    The word “Ram” means “Concealment” in the Egyptian lanquage. What a coincidence that the last word of M is a scared letter which is the first word for water. Amen meant “the concealed one”. In the Gnostic Gospel of Philip it reports: Jesus is a hidden name…The Nazarene is he who reveals what is hidden”. I understand the Bible refers to Jesus has a Ram . The Gospel of Philip also stated Jesus middle name was Nazarene. Messiah has two meanings, both the Christ and the measured. Jesus in Hebrew is the redemption. Nazara is the truth. Nazarene , then is the truth”. Before I read Philip’s gospel I had already concluded elsewhere in another essay that the Egyptian god meant hidden truth. Light Hidden under water that eventually would shine its truth. Amen-Ra was the double truth combined into one. The Christians can’t deny the Gospel of Philip statements because in their own gospels/memoir say you must worship god in spirit and in truth, which is Amen-Ra because unseen is Amen and Ra is light/truth.

    The root of the word Christ is Egyptian in origin.

    Plato some time in 4th century BC in his Republic Book X refer to “The way” in speaking of the Egyptian trained Pythagoras.

    It shouldn’t be too hard to figure out that Paul was Gnostic and had his writings tampered with after he died. You can see it through the contradictions of flesh vs. Spirit and faith. Now Paul chides the Corinthian Christians for being “people of the flesh” 1 Corinthians 3: 1-4 when they should be spiritual. But do they really have to be when John said the “word was made flesh” John 1:14. The Gnostics thought faith was inferior to knowledge. The true sons of the absolute deity were saved through knowledge rather than faith. I agree that to have faith you have to have knowledge in faith.

    See A. Powell Davies Dead Sea Scrolls pp116-118 for the following information:
    “Let us again notice that those to whom the name Essene is given did not use that name in speaking of themselves. Nor was the name Christian used by those who are called the early Christians. The people who came to bear these names called themselves “The Saints”, “The Brethren”, “The Elect”, “Sons of Light”, “They that are of the way”…

    Scholars have always had to accept the possibility that at the time of Jesus there was no city called Nazareth. Moreover, Nazareth is not mentioned either in the old testament or the Talmud. There is a strong possibility that Nazareth, instead of being the name of a city, is a synonym for all Galilee. In this case, Nazarenes would mean the same as Galileans, and we know that the Christianoi were called Galileans (Luke 22:59) as late as the time of the Emperor Julian. What this amounts to is that Essence of Galilee were sometimes called Galileans, sometimes Nazarenes . Luke admits Galilee was part of Nazareth when he said “And Joseph too went up from Galilee from the town of Nazareth” Luke 2:4.

    So again we find the distinctions fading. “Nazarene” means “Believer in a messiah”. So does “Christianos” And we know that all the Essence sects believed in a messiah.”

    If Davies is correct about Galilee and Nazareth as one in the same would force me to turn to Strabo (64BC-25Ad) for some interesting information. Strabo reports Book 16: 2.34: “Jerusalem; for this city is also near the sea; for, as I have already said, …This region lies towards the north; and it is inhabited in general, as is each place in particular, by mixed stocks of people from Aegyptian and Arabian and Phoenician tribes; for such are those who occupy Galilee and Jericho…The temple at Jerusalem represents the ancestors of the present Judaeans, as they are called, as Aegyptians”. As far as 1400 BC the Amarna letters clearly show that Jerusalem was under Egyptian control with Egyptian military garrison before their Exodus. The Bible talks about a black tribe Jebus: “Jerasalem” as its founder Josh 18:28; Judg 1:21; 19:10; Chron. 11:4-5. His offspring had occupied that city long before the Hebrews left Egypt.

    Review the lanquage of the Egyptian book of the dead. “Verily I say, Osiris, I’am a ruler divine, I say let it be that there is no repulse to me at it, at its wall of burning coals. I have opened the way in Re-stau, easing the pain of Osiris, making to enter that which hath weighed the standard, making his way in the valley, great one making the way, shineth Osiris” In in another passage it states: “O ye who opened the way and lay open the paths to perfected souls in the (Double) Hall of Osiris, open ye the way…may his bidding be done in the house of Osiris…He hath not been found wanting there, and the balance is rid of his trial”.

    Re-stau is a place where you wait for your heart to be judge by Thoth with a feather of truth. If you were found to be doubly true you emerged with Truth Amen-Ra for eternal life. So my friend that was the original way, truth and life that Jesus spoke and Paul wrote about.

    Shetat was the same as mysteries. It meant the secret rites that were performed by initiated persons only, who were limited in number. They search the mysteries because they wanted to know, and knowledge was the reward of their diligent research.

    Plato’s Phaedo States the Essence is “Unseen” soul and immortal. He states that souls purifies themselves by Philsophy live without bodies forever. Philsophy according to Plato was love of knowledge that was in your soul before you were born. Also when your soul is trying to get into heaven “The soul comes to hades she brings with her nothing but her education and training; and this is said to do the greatest help or hurt to the dead at the very beginning of his course thither…there those gathered must stand their trial, and then pass on to the house of hades with the guide…if there would be no need of guides, for no one could miss one way to anywhere. But really, it seems to have many breaks and branches”. In the Egyptian book of the dead it says similar things of Plato. For example: “Indeed the Sektet boat and the Atet boat bring to me them under the trees of which I know the branches beautiful”.

    .The Gospel of Thomas makes an interesting statement: “Jesus said, blessed is he who came into being before he came into being. If you become my disciples and listen to my words, these stones will minister you. For there are five trees for you in paradice which remain undisturbed summer and winter and whose leaves do not fall. Whoever becomes acquainted with them will not experience death”. Are these the other books rev 20 :12 was talking about ? Where the leaves apart of these books to which where a healing Rev 22:2. I believe so.

    “There are also connections between Orpheus and The Book of the dead. In New kingdom and later Egypt this served as a guide for the soul through the perils of the Underworld to immortality, and was frequently buried with the mummified corpse. In Greece and Italy, spells and hymns inscribed on gold leaf were placed by the bodies of devotees of Orpheus. So it is interesting to note in this connection that a version of The book of the dead does refer to ‘the books of Geb and Osiris’ –Black Athena p.72. Bertrand Russell states in his History of Western Philosophy “Orphic tablets have been found in tombs, giving instructions to the soul of the dead person as to how to find his way in the next world, and what to say in order to prove himself worthy of salvation” p.18 . I then skip to p.308 where Russell says: “especially as to salvation, which were on the whole new in Christianity, though in part traceable to Orphism”. Diodorus 1:96 states that “Orpheus, for instance, brought from Egypt most of his mystic ceremonies”. This may perhaps explain Revelations account of Jesus claiming that leaves are a healing. The Egyptians used spells to prolong life or regain it after death see the Egyptian book of dead which says “who live in my body through the mighty spell of the words of my mouth which raiseth up him that hath fallen” p 341. Homer in the last book of the Odyssey 24: 5 states “Hermes the kindly healer”. Plutarch also told us that Thoth/Hermes wrote your words on a leaf. Plutarch went on to say “The tongue is luck, the tongue is god. Of the plants in Egypt they say that the persea is especially consecrated to the goddess because its fruit resembles a heart and its leaf a tongue”.

    The Voyage of Argo stated: “But Medea, chanting a spell, dipped a fresh sprig of juniper in her brew and sprinkled his eyes with her most potent drug; and as the all-pervading magic scent spread around his head, sleep fell on him” iv 146-185. And again: “Orpheus sobbed as he prayed. But the nymphs were still at hand, and they took pity on the suffering men. They wrought a miracle. First, grass sprang up from the ground; …in a moment three saplings, tall, straight and in full leaf, were growing there…And now the Argonauts heard Aegle in her gentle voice tell them what they wished to know”4:1402-1435. Diodorus 1:92-96 tells us that Orpheus reproduced Egyptian funeral practices

    Also in the Egyptian Book of the dead it reads: “ Art thou knowing the name of the leaf upper and the leaf lower? These two leaves were on doors or gates of those passing through rest stops/ Re-stau along your journey or travels in the under and upper world.
    According to Budge Egyptians buried their dead with leaves latter turned into reed mats. Also gold leafs were buried with a copy of the book of the dead.

    Virgil version of his Egyptian version of the underworld talks about those leaves too.

    A tree’s deep shade conceals a bough whose leave
    And pliant twigs are all of gold, a thing
    Sacred to Juno of the lower world

    Virgil also talk about Iron cubicles , Iron mouths , Green swamp lakes, Charon’s boatman, region of shades, snakes, a judge, Cereberus, golden legs, double plumes which are all talked about in the Egyptian Book of the dead

    So I close with one more which ties in all the above. “Osiris…he maketh the way for the intelligence, for the soul of Osiris. Ani I am provided, I’am an intelligence provided, I have made the way to the place in which Ra and Hathor are there. If be known chapter this he becometh as an intelligence provided in the Netherworld”.


    Further reading proves that the Leaf in the bible was symbolic of god just like Plutarch stated that the Egyptians symbolize God’s tongue as a leaf. Malachi 4:6 stated “But for you who revere my name, the sun (not son) of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings”. Now Psalms 84: 11 also states that god is a sun and shield. A shield protects just like medicine protects and heals you from sickness. We know that wings resemble leaves that are combined together. So these feathers could also be leaves of healing that Revelations 22:2 talks about. The Egyptians also symbolized truth as a feather. And the Egyptian god was Maat/Truth before he was anything else. We know that the New testament pointed out the diffirence between Satan and God. Satan was lies and God was truth. God wings are leaves/books, the same books are opened up after the book of life is opened up. The Christian religion and the Egyptian religion are one and the same. Now I conclude without a doubt in my mind that all of symbolic talk was just trying to say that the words of god is truth which can heal you.

    Second Century writer Apuleius wrote The Golden ***. Apuleius was initiated into the mysteries of Isis twice and wrote about it in book 11 of his works. I’m particularly interested in a passage when he states: “Thereupon the old man (priest) took me by the hand and led me toward the spacious temple; and after he had duly performed the rituals of opening the doors and of making the morning-sacrifice, he produced from the secret recesses of the shrine certain books written in unknown characters was concealed, at times by the concentrated expression of hieroglyphically painted animals, at times by Wreathed (Twisted leaves) and twisted letters with tails that twirled like wheels or spiraled together like vinetendrils-so that it was altogether impossible for any peeping profane to comprehend. From these books the high priest interpreted to me the matters necessary for my mystic preparation”. This gives me to points to make. First the Egyptians wrote on leaves for religious reasons and second this may be the origin of speaking in Tongues or Leaves.

    The Catholics in their introduction to Revelation states that the symbol for knowledge was (eyes). This is strange because eyes are connected to symbols of healing in Egypt. Eyes were symbol of RA, the Sun too. It was Plutarch writing the Obsolescence of Oracles remarking “Apollo/Horus and the sun as one and the same god; but those who understood and respected fair and wise analogy conjectured that as body is to soul, vision to intellect, and light to truth, so is the power of the sun to the nature of Appollo and they would make it appear that the sun is his offspring and progency, being for ever born (life) of him. For the sun kindles and promotes and helps to keep in activity (Alive) the power of vision”. The Sun was connected to knowledge and life. The healing parts comes in through the fictional story of the eye of Horus. The myth explains how Horus fought Set/Satan over the murder of Osiris. In that fight Horus eye was torn into fragments. But thanks to Thoth/Hermes and Isis his eye was restored. The complete eye had come to mean whole, unharmed and was used in hieroglyphic writing to represent wholesomeness and unity. And Just as a side note Herodotus equated “Horus is the Apollo” in book 2:144.

    The eye symbol has gradually evolved into todays familiar sign for prescription, RX. So knowledge and healing are interchangeable and go hand and hand being derived from Egyptian religion. So when I see Ptah being associated with Fire/sun. I know that his heart/mind thought of creating the world through his tongue/words. The Bible also says the Tongue/words are healing Proverbs and that light was truth John 3:21, 2cor 4:6 which says the “light of the knowledge” . Now light also refers to health. “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light” Matthew 6:22 And here’s another quote from the book of the dead “Osiris, shooting rays of light from his eye” p.288 In Egypt The eye “Uta” signfies salvation . The Egyptians fed the eye with sacred oil. John also makes it very clear that the word was light also. John 1:1.So having a whole healthy body was through one eye of light/knowledge. This is no diffirent than the Egyptian religion stated Knowledge was a healing. I kink eye equated Knowledge due to the Egyptian using symbols in their writing. If you saw and understood what a particular symbol meant you became learned because you understood.


    Notes:
    The Esoteric Buddhist still expects a perpetuity of existence by means of knowledge, or the Gnosis. In the Egyptian Book of the Dead the deceased makes his way from stage to stage of his progress by what he knows. He asserts his right of way by proclaiming: "I am the one who knows," "I am the Gnostic," "I have come," he exclaims, "having the writing"--the proof. Certain papyri assured a passage, and "prevailing by his papyrus," like Christian with his roll, is a title of the deceased. If he knows the first chapter of the Ritual in this life the spirit of the deceased can come forth every day as he wishes, and not be turned back, i.e., if he possesses the knowledge of facts, which were demonstrated by the ancient Spiritualism. He is shown in the process of creating his eternal soul, by means of the Gnosis, or books of knowledge, those of Taht-Hermes. He cries: "Let me come! Let me spiritualise myself! Let me make myself into a soul! Prevail and prepare myself by the writings of Hermes!" or the Gnosis.

    It has come to my attention that one Egyptian formula of obtaining a second life in the Otherworld by painting your tongue green with a figure of Maat/truth on your tongue/leaf.See “Legends of the Egyptians” by E.A Wallis Budge p.xxxii

    Isis used her wings to protect Osiris. This concept has a lot to do with “healing in wings” of Malachi 4:2

    I almost forgot to mention another side issue of the leaf from Revelations. The leaf was symbolic for healing of Nations. I’m finding a similar story in a box the tomb of TwtankhAmen/Jesus which contained several pieces of gold leaf, bearing his name. One of the gold leaves represents three foreigners from three diffirent races or nations of the ancient known world. This story runs on the same line as the three kings who come to see Jesus. Nothing is mentioned of healing on this gold leaf but King Tut was known as a redeemer and this leaf like Revelations leaf was associated with Nations. Gold leaves in Greece and Rome were connected with the Egyptian justice of weighing hearts on scales.

    Godfrey Higgins book Anacalypsis makes an interesting statement: “The two Greek terms for letters, viv, from a leaf and from a line, confirm what I have said, that letters were originally leaves and right lines”.

    The Shabaka stone says the same thing as jesus leaf had life the shabaka stone said the tongue gave life.

    THE SHABAKA STONE
    (53) Heart took shape in the form of Atum. Tongue took shape in the form of Atum. It is Ptah, the very great, who has given [life] to all the gods and their kas through this heart and through this tongue, (54) from which Heru had come forth as Ptah, from which Tehuti had come forth as Ptah.

    Your comment about Tutankhmen was very profound. You are right about him being the redeemer, particuliarly as it relates to his name

    His name is living image of Amen, and it can also be overstood to mean the word made flesh.

    His tomb... as we all know was the only tomb found "in tact" and on his person was found a vestment that you can only find on Neteru, as depicted in scenes of the various books of coming forth by day.

    It is no coincidence his tomb was "discovered" in 1922,

    22 being the number of hebrew letters, the second master number in numerology, as well as Tarot cards

    The number 19 central in sacred geometry and hyperdimensional physics. particuliary 19.5

    Indeed there is more than meets the eye regarding this so-called minor king, named Tutankhaten/amen

    MORE GNOSTIC WRITINGS

    When Eve separated from Adam, the original androgynous unity (Universe) was broken. The purpose of Jesus/Horus coming is to reunite Adam and Eve. Just as a husband and wife unite in the bridal chamber, so also the reunion effected by Jesus takes place in a bridal chamber.-See The Gospel of Philip

    Adam and Eve was symbolic of the Sun and Moon or Light and darkness. Sun/Male Moon female.

    Jesus claimed in Luke that their was Signs in the Sun and Moon that his Kingdom would be near at Hand Luke 21:25 ;31

    The five fingers of the Hand was symbolic of the Sun and Moon or the Universe. Plutarch in his various writings said that:

    5= the sun/moon together or Catholic
    5= Marriage/ Bride and groom
    5= Union/universe
    5=Hand= five fingers/universe or Kingdom
    5=harmony of opposites of male/female or Osiris/Isis
    5=Combination of upright/downright pyramids. You can see the doctrine of opposites by the double pillars/pyramids at Egyptian temples

    It shouldn’t be a coincidence that 5 virgins maintaining oil lamps get to see the bridegroom in the New Testament.

    Plutarch and Pythagoras learned from the Egyptians the analogy and association of vital human body parts, numbers having mysteries of the Universe.

    The Hand was seen as symbolic of the cresecent moon transporting spirits to the Light Sun/or Orion stars. Osiris is pictured taking subjects by the hand into his kingdom/universe. The Gnostic writings of Mani agree. “For the purpose of the actual salvation of the particles of light the cosmos must be set in motion…On it the liberated particles of light ascend to the moon which gathers them up to its fullness (full moon), in order to pass them on afterwards, thus emptying itself (new moon), to the sun”.

    Everything of light, which is refined out from all directions, however, is given back to the Kingdom of God as the ultimate set of aspiration, by certain vessels ie, sun and moon.

    To combat these five evil elements, five other elements were sent out from the Kingdom and substance of God, and in that battle; light with darkness, the good fire with the evil. The good water with the evil, the good with the evil wind. Those vessels, however, the two lamps of heaven, are distinguished by them as follows: The moon is composed of the good water, and the Sun of the good fire”.

    The Universe first appears as father, or Voice; Mother as Sound, the Son, or Word-Trimorphic Protennoia. Voice by virtue of Thought. And it is a word by virtue of sound.

    So we have 3 elements Air, Fire. Water in creation of earth is 4.

    Females was the sound of water. Valentinus, who was almost elected as a Gnostic Catholic Pope called Mary water. You know her as a Nun. Nun is Egyptian for water. Aramaic letters make Nun a Fish/Pises. The Catholic early fathers say Jesus is spelled also Joshua. Joshua is the Egyptian Shu/air being given birth by water. Joshua is called in OT the son of Nun. Coincidence? No. Hathor/Isis were Nuns/Crocodiles/Pises giving birth to Horus/Jesus.

    In the Thunder, perfect mind God is called the Bride and Bridegroom which is Osiris/Isis
    Jesus/Church. The Church was called the body in NT. Hermes Trismegistus calls the body water. The Church plays the part of the upside down pyramid and the river of life/a square swimming pool. Then the upright pyramid has the circle of sun/light shining on top of the water. In “The acts of Peter” helps in part to support my claim. “I have in my appearance, in falling head dowards,…he (peter) therefore, being drawn down-he who cast his first beginning down to the earth-established the whole of this comic (Universe) system, being hung up”. So we see his death resemble an Egyptian pillar V or upside down pyramid. The Egyptian peter hold up heaven with two rock mountains/pyramids called sunrise sunset. These are the Gold and Silver keys passed by Peter to all Popes.

    It was the Egyptians who taught that god used his mind, thought, tongue to create the world before any Old or New Testaments writings were in existence. Check out the book “Stolen Legacy” By George G.M James. In this book is a bright revelation towards the truth.

    According to James Mind/fire The Word/spirit/air Tongue was Water. RA creates the world through tear drops (water/moon) from his eye (sun). Jesus claims he was the word/tongue from the beginning of the creation of the world. Jesus claims to have a voice/tongue of fire and water. This would make him unisex or Universal. Why else wear a golden girdle. God has no limit so he has to be both opposites.

    “The God Osiris was represented in all Egyptian temples by the symbol of an Open eye. This symbol indicated not only sight that transcends time and space, but also the omniscience of God, as the great mind which created and which directs the Universe”.So when the Gnostic say that the Kingdom is within you its all in your eyes (know/sun) and heart. The kingdom is a state of mind.

    The Egyptian priest had two eyes of Peter holding up the Universe. These Eyes were symbolic of the Pyramid of sunrise/sunset. Your body becomes whole when you see(know) the light. Socrates, Plato, Thales didn’t originate “Man know thyself”. This was copied directly or indirectly from inscriptions which appeared on the outside of temples in Egypt.

    "The kingdom is a state of mind"

    Exactly. Yet, some are still looking to "the stars".
