Humiliating Egypt's gods
"Moses and Aaron .. lifted up the rod, and struck the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood .. and the blood was throughout all the land of Egypt. The magicians of Egypt did the same thing with their enchantments; and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened."

Listener Question: Egyptian religion still
religion makes for some interesting grist for si-fi
movies and such, but surely, nobody really practices
that bizarre religion anymore..
Tsiyon Answer: Well, yes and no. Yes -
Egyptian religion is bizarre, including gods with
human-like bodies and animal heads. No - Egyptian
religious practices continue as a regular part of
the lives of billions of people. Now let me document
will start with a popular claim that is not true.
Namely, that the "Jesus story" (as found in
Scripture) is just a re-hash of the ancient
Osiris-Isis-Horace myth. Here are three principle
claims used to "prove" this accusation, with
Horus and Jesus both born of a virgin: Simply
untrue. Horus was not born of a virgin. Horus
was the son of Isis and Osiris, who were
married. No virgin birth here.
Horus and Jesus both had twelve disciples:
Simply untrue again. Horus had four demi-gods
who followed him, if you want to call them
"disciples" - but 4 isn't 12.
Horus and Jesus were both crucified and
resurrected 3 days later: Strike three -
crucifixion was invented by the Romans centuries
after the advent of Egyptian religion. There is
no crucifixion story of Horus.
I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
The attempt to equate "Jesus" with Horus is a
forced contrivance with no basis in reality. So
why does this false accusation persist? The
reason is that the Roman Church of the fourth
century A.D. forward did assimilate pagan
customs that originated in ancient Egyptian
religion. If you don't make a distinction
between the earliest followers of Messiah and
the apostates of the later Roman Church then you
could easily be fooled by the apostate pagan
In a nutshell, the ancient Egyptian religion came
down through time as part of the mystery schools of
ancient Greece and Rome. These flourished in Rome
under the banner of Mithras, god of the Sun, which
worship was practiced by Emperor Constantine, who
was also the first Roman emperor to rule the Roman
is one example of how the ancient Sun god became
amalgamated into the Roman Church in the form of
their Christ figure.

Roman Church is not alone in carrying forward
doctrines, customs and celebrations of the ancient
pagan religion, including the December 25
celebration of the birth of the Sun, assimilated
into "Christianity" as Christmas, The Easter
celebration, named after an Isis permutation, and
many other pagan customs. We find this same
Mithrasian cult carried forward in other groups as
well. Note this quote:
The Freemason / Oddfellows / Skull and Bones &
other related fraternal organizations, all can
be traced to the worship of Mithras which is the
worship of the Sun god, which is where the
“lodge” or underground cave or tavern came from.
They believed that the Sun came out of a rock
and was received by shepherds. Mithras worship
came from the Egyptian worship of Horus (the Sun
god), Isis (the goddess of fertility, the
eternal virgin mother, the queen of heaven) and
Osiris (their father god). The Greeks took Horus
and changed him into their Sun-god Helios and
Isis they made Dionysus etc. It’s all paganism
and false god worship, it was part of the ruling
party of Rome and had come down through Persia
through the Arya, or spiritual people of Iran.
Many of whom migrated to India to start Hinduism
& later monks went to China & start Buddhism
from a traveling Hindu monk who pasted his
knowledge unto a martial art monastery that the
Shaolin temple was born. [paradoxparables.justparadox.com]
Through Mithras cult influence the gods of ancient
Egypt continue to influence virtually all modern
secret societies as well as all major religions of
the world. That is why so many different groups and
religions incorporate very similar practices and
symbols. For example, nearly every "Christian"
Church worships under a representation of the
phallus of Osiris! Note this:
What Do Spires and Steeples Represent? Such
objects long predate Christianity. In fact, they
go back to ancient pagan fertility rites. The
male symbol of fertility was represented by the
pagans as an upright stone, pillar, obelisk, or
slender tower. [The Egyptian obelisk is a
representation of the phallus of Osiris.]
According to Edward Carpenter, in the book Pagan and
Christian Creeds, the lingam (a stylized
phallic symbol) occurs all over the world.
The Biblical Cyclopaedia, by McClintock and
Strong, says: "Even the spires of churches are
symbols retained from the old phallic worship"
("Phallus," vol. VIII, p. 55).
Thomas Inman, in his book Ancient Pagan and Modern
Christian Symbolism, writes that ancient
fertility rites and phallic worship resulted in
the setting up of various architectural
structures such "as we now see towers or spires
before our churches, and minarets before
mosques" (p. XXII). [Bibletools.com]
more could be said about the influence of ancient
Egyptian religion in our modern world. In some cases
these practices are accepted unknowingly, while in
others, they are entered into knowingly and
purposefully. In either case we should ask
ourselves, "Should I participate in the use of
customs which originate in a pagan religion that
YHWH condemned by the Ten Plagues." Think about it,
and make your choice today.

The Ten Plagues - Why those specific plagues and why the timing
of them? Did YHWH just think; "Oh, I know what will really annoy
those pesky Egyptians! Swarms of flies!" No, the Ten Plagues
were chosen and executed in a much more purposeful way than
that. By means of the Ten Plagues YHWH was specifically judging
the gods of Egypt, choosing both the plagues and the timing to
accomplish His purpose. Learn more in our latest Midrash.
