Horus is a popular name but many do not deeply know his true tale, especially now that his story has been plagiarized and the west will do everything in their power to silence the original story as well as demonize it so that people will be scared to look deeper, because if they do, the truth will be brought to light. So who is Horus? Lots of literature teaches that Horus is the name of a sky god in ancient Egyptian mythology, the son of Osiris and Isis. The name Horus isn’t an Egyptian name, In accordance with Ancient History Encyclopaedia, “the name Horus is the Latin version of the Egyptian Hor which means “the Distant One”, a reference to his role as a sky god”.
However, apart from the name “Hor”, the most accepted Kemetic ancient Egyptian name is “Heru”. But for the sake of this document and for easy recognition by the readers, I shall use the popular name “Horus” throughout this article in order to avoid confusion.
Horus being the son of Osiris and Isis, he was said to be the prince of Egypt who could use his mind’s eye to see!
According to Wikipedia, it says and I quote: “Horus was often the ancient Egyptians’ national tutelary deity. He was usually depicted as a falcon-headed man wearing the pschent, or a red and white crown, as a symbol of kingship over the entire kingdom of Egypt. … Horus served many functions, most notably being a god of kingship and the sky”.
Horus is one of the most interesting deity in the history of Egypt, but you must know dear reader that this deity does not originate in Egypt, it actually was adopted from the Sumerians and the Mesopotamia whom the Christian bible refers to as Babylon, and he was referred to as Tamuz. Same to the mother Isis whom the Sumerians call Ishtar, the goddess of fertility and sex, on a separate article i shall write in full note all you need to know about isis.
Now the trinity, the Christian religion adopted many stories and concepts from hermetic science which has its origin in Egypt and the Sumerian. What the Christians are actually worshipping isn’t what they think they are worshipping, starting from Amen which they say at the end of their prayer, who is Amen? Amen (Amun) is the Egyptian god known as “king of the gods” and it is believed he was later emulated by the Greek god Zeus. … After the merging with the sun god “Ra” to become Amun–Ra he became the singular god for worship in the New Kingdom of Egypt. So when the Christians say amen, they are indirectly honouring Amun-Ra.
The concept of the Trinity which Christianity holds dear today in point of fact predates Christianity; the symbolism of the trinity represents the Sun, The Moon and the Stars. The Sun is the father, The Moon is the Mother and the star is the son. The truth is, the original trinity was represented with Osiris as the father, Horus as the sun and Isis as the Holy Spirit. They were the trinity ever known before the west plagiarized it to form the Christian trinity we know today. The trinity was in fact, not what they write it to be today, it in reality as idea incorporated into a symbol to represent something much deeper.
Now going back on track, statues of Horus the Child from the Ptolemaic period show him as a young boy with his finger to his lips perhaps representing the time when he had to remain quiet when hiding from his uncle Seth as a child. In his young form he “came to represent a promise by the gods to take care of suffering humanity” since he had himself suffered as an child and knew how it felt to be fragile and surrounded by dangers. It was this concept of Horus who became the popular in the Roman world. The Cult of Isis was the most popular mystery cult in Rome, greatly influencing the development of Christianity, giving birth to the concept of the Virgin Mary and young Jesus. Lots of Horus story are found within the pages of the bible which distorts it giving its credits to an imaginary concept of Jesus and hiding away the true origin.
Horus is mostly represented with the Eye, especially the Eye on a triangle which has been adopted by the controversial so called illuminate cult, all that is meant to paint the image of an Af’rakan deity as bad and evil, by such doing they scare the people away from the truth. What the people don’t know is that the symbolic eye on a pyramid represents the 6th psychic centre, the pineal gland or rather called the third eye. In agreement with ancient Af’rakan spirituality, we all have three eyes, two objective eyes and at the centre known as the third eye, which is not objective or physical in nature, rather its psychic, this whole idea of the third eye, a sharp insight and intuition is all that Horus actually represents metaphorically, it’s all a mystical idea personified, and when this idea is used and positioned well, it raises a powerful energy. The whites know this so well that they use these symbols and deities to achieve their desires while they scare you out of it.
THE CONCEPTION OF HORUS FROM A VIRGIN MOTHER ISIS
This story is what gave birth to the Virgin Mary birth Jesus and King Herod trying to kill baby Jesus. Now let us look at the original version of the story:
In accordance with “The Egyptian Book of the Dead”; this story begins shortly after the creation of the world when Osiris and Isis ruled over a paradise they created. When man was born from the tears of Atum (Ra) they were uncivilized and barbaric. Osiris taught them culture, religious observances to honour the gods, and the art of agriculture. The people were all equal at this time, men and women, owing to the gifts of Isis which were dispensed to all. Food was plentiful and there was no want or need unfulfilled.
Osiris’ brother, Seth, grew jealous of him and this envy turned to hatred when Seth discovered that his wife, Nephthys, had transformed herself into the likeness of Isis and seduced Osiris. Seth was not angry with Nephthys, however, but focused his revenge on his brother, “The Beautiful One”, who had presented a temptation too strong for Nepthys to resist. Seth tricked Osiris into laying down in a casket he had made to his brother’s exact specifications and, once Osiris was inside, Seth slammed the lid on and threw the box into the Nile.
The casket floated down the river to eventually lodge in a tamarisk tree by the shores of Byblos where the king and queen admired its beauty and sweet scent and had it cut down for a pillar in their court. While this was going on, Seth has usurped Osiris’ rule and reigned over the land with Nephthys. He neglected the gifts which Osiris and Isis had bequeathed and the land suffered drought and famine. Isis knew she had to bring Osiris back from wherever Seth had banished him to and went out searching for him. She finally found him inside the tree-pillar at Byblos, asked the king and queen for it, and brought it back to Egypt.
Osiris was dead but Isis knew she could bring him back to life. She asked her sister Nephthys to stand guard over the body and protect it from Seth while she went to gather herbs for potions. Seth, meanwhile, had heard that his brother had returned and was out looking for him. He found Nephthys and tricked her into telling him where the body was hidden; then he hacked Osiris into pieces and scattered the body parts across the land and into the Nile. When Isis came back she was horrified to find her husband’s body missing. Nephthys told her how she had been tricked and what Seth had done to Osiris.
The two sisters then went in search of the body parts and reassembled Osiris. His penis had been eaten by a fish and so he was incomplete but Isis could still return him to life. Isis used her magic and potions and, in some versions of the story, is aided in this by Nephthys. Osiris revived but could no longer rule among the living because he was no longer whole; he would have to descend to the underworld and reign there as Lord of the Dead. Prior to his departure, though, Isis transformed herself into a kite (a falcon) and flew around his body, drawing his seed into her own and becoming pregnant with Horus. Osiris left for the underworld and Isis went into hiding in the Delta region of Egypt to protect herself and her now unborn son “Horus” from Seth. The Virgin Isis endured a difficult pregnancy with exceptionally long labour and gave birth to Horus alone in the swamps of the Delta. She hid herself and her son from Seth and his demons in the thickets, only going out at night for food accompanied by a bodyguard of seven scorpions who were given her by the goddess Selket (and, in some versions of the story, Neith) watched over Horus while Isis went out. Isis, Selket, and Neith nurtured Horus and educated him in their exile until he was grown to manhood and was strong enough to challenge his uncle for his father’s kingdom.
The story of the battles between Horus and Seth have many different versions but the best known is from a manuscript dating to the 20th Dynasty (1090-1077 BCE), The Contending of Horus and Seth which describes their contest as a legal trial in front of the Ennead, a tribunal of nine powerful gods. In this version of the story, Horus brings a complaint against Set – who is one of the nine claiming he has unlawfully taken the throne from Osiris – who is also one of the nine judges. The tribunal is asked to decide between Horus and Seth and most of the gods choose Horus but Ra, the supreme god, claims that Horus is too young and inexperienced and Seth has the better claim to rule. Horus and Seth must compete in a series of battles to prove which is best able to reign. In the course of these battles, Horus loses an eye and Set is castrated (or, at least, severely damaged) but Horus is victorious each time and this is when he discovered the third eye, he could use his third eye to see.
These contests go on for over 80 years and Ra continues to deny Horus his right to the throne. Meanwhile, the land is suffering under Set’s rule and Isis is desperate to do something to help her son and her people. She transforms herself into a beautiful young woman and sits down in front of Seth’s place where she begins to cry. When Seth comes out and sees her, he asks the cause of her sorrow and she tells him how a wicked man, her husband’s own brother, has killed him and taken his land and, further, seeks the life of her only son and has banished her to the swamp lands and the thickets where only the scorpions are her companions.
Seth is outraged by her story and declares that this man should be punished. He swears that he, himself, will go find this man and cast him from the lands and restore the woman and her child to their rightful place. Isis then throws off her disguise and reveals her true self and the other gods in attendance. Seth has condemned himself by his own decree and Ra agrees with the other gods that Horus should be king. Seth is then banished to the desert lands beyond Egypt’s borders while Horus assumes the throne of his father with his mother and aunt Nephthys as consorts.
Having conquered Set and restored order, Horus became known as Horu-Sema-Tawy, The Horus, Uniter of the Two Lands. He reinstated the policies of his parents, rejuvenating the land, and ruled wisely. It is for this reason that kings of Egypt, from the First Dynastic Period on, aligned themselves with Horus and chose a “Horus Name” to rule under at their coronation. Osiris had been the first king of Egypt who established order and then passed on to the underworld while Horus was the king who restored that order after it was overturned by Set and who raised Egypt up from chaos to harmony. Egyptian kings, therefore, identified themselves with Horus in life and Osiris in death. During their reign, they were the physical manifestation of Horus under the protection of Isis (a notable departure from this custom being the king Peribsen, sixth king of the Second Dynasty, who aligned himself clearly with Seth). Ramesis II famously invokes the protection of Isis and Horus in his Poem of Pentaur following the Battle of Kadesh in 1274 BCE as do many other kings and pharaohs of Egypt. Wilkinson writes:
Horus was directly linked with the kingship of Egypt in both his falcon form aspect and as son of Isis. From the earliest Dynastic Period the king’s name was written in the rectangular device known as the serekh which depicted the Horus falcon perched on a stylized palace enclosure and which seems to indicate the king as mediator between the heavenly and earthly realms, if not the god manifest within the palace as the king himself. To this “Horus Name” of the monarch, other titles were later added, including the “Golden Horus” name in which a divine falcon is depicted upon the hieroglyphic sign for gold.
THE WORSHIP OF HORUS
Horus was worshiped in the same way as any of the other gods of Egypt: temples were built as homes for the god and his statue placed within the inner sanctum where only the chief priest was allowed to attend him. The clergy of the Horus Cult were always male as they associated themselves with Horus and claimed protection from their `mother’ Isis. Attendant priests took care of the temple complex which, like any other, was constructed to mirror the afterlife of the Field of Reeds. The reflecting pool of the temple was Lily Lake (also known as The Lake of Flowers) which the souls of the justified dead were rowed across by the divine ferryman Hraf-hef (`He-Who-Looks-Behind-Himself’). The temple was the afterlife palace and home of the god and the courtyard, decorated with flowers, was his garden.
Horus being the sun and sky god was represented with a falcon the sun bird, and known to journey through the sky at day, and dies at night, then resurrects by morning.
HORUS AND JESUS
The Cult of Horus in Egypt, as noted, was already ancient by the time the Osiris Myth became popular and that myth elevated the worship of Osiris, Isis and Horus to a national level. The Cult of Isis became so popular that worship of the goddess travelled through Greece and then to Rome where it became the greatest challenge to the new religion of Christianity in the 3rd-5th centuries CE, see the article “Christianity or Messianic”.
Horus traveled with her in the form of Horus the Child and influenced Christian iconography of the Virgin Mary and the Christ Child
There is no doubt the worship of Isis influenced early Christianity through the concepts of the Dying and Reviving God who returns from the dead to bring life to the people, eternal life through dedication to that god, the image of the virgin mother and child, and even the red-hue and characteristics of the Christian devil. This is however to say, that Christianity is simply the Isis Cult re-packaged and that Horus was the prototype for the risen Christ.
The book The Pagan Christ by Tom Harpur (2004) makes this very claim, and has given rise to the so-called Horus-Jesus Controversy also known as the Son of God Controversy. Harpur claims that Christianity was invented wholly from Egyptian mythology and that Jesus is simply Horus re-imagined. To support his claim, Harpur cites `experts’ on the subject such as Godfrey Higgins, Gerald Massey, and Alvin Boyd Kuhn, all writers from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, none of whom were biblical scholars or Egyptologists. Higgins was an English magistrate who believed all religions came from the Lost city of Atlantis (to be discussed soon on this site).
The Dying and Reviving God motif had existed for thousands of years before the apostle Paul began his evangelical efforts c. 42-62 CE and the concept of eternal life through personal dedication to a god was equally well established. Harpur’s book presents a number of very serious problems to any reader acquainted with the Bible, Christianity, and Egyptian Mythology and history but his most serious offense is the claim that Horus and Jesus share “remarkable similarities”, which in truth and sincerity, I totally agree. Who is Jesus anyway? A composite god comprising of Horus Zeus and Krishna, shortened as He.Zeus Krishna, which is transliterated in German as Jesu Kristi and in English as Jesus Christ.
The virgin birth of Horus was taken and incorporated into the story of Jesus during the time the founding fathers created Christianity. The miracles and wonders of Krishna was taken as well, and the personality of Zeus, then finally the teachings of Yehoshua was taken and plagiarized as Jesus’ teachings, then the art work of Caesar Borgia’s was used to represent the image of Jesus. Read the article “Christianity of Messianic”.
In conclusion, Horus is the ancient Egyptian Sun and Sky god, its symbol is the Hawk and the falcon, Horus, originally known as “Hor” or “Heru” is one of the most celebrated deities in Egypt and one of the strongest who deals with intuition, insight, and Light! His mother is the goddess of fertility and sex, Queen Isis.
I so hope this article have added a Light unto yours.
May the blessings be!
