Part 2 - The Hand of Horus - The Key of Life, Falsely Promised

In part, 1 the use of the hand to signal Horus was illustrated in common and historically significant gestures. The raising of the hand models the raising of Horus in resurrection, and if you haven't realized it yet, this represents Satan's crux move that will shortly manifest in the revealing of the lawless one (2 Thessalonians 2). Attention was given to the invocation of Horus that is implicit in the raising of the right hand at the taking of oaths. Attention was also given to the stiff armed palm down salutes, tracing that controversial gesture back to a Frenchman's esoteric painting interpreting a Roman legend.

We find a hand gesture with an oath in the book of Deuteronomy that should be established as the genuine against which counterfeits may be compared. The Sovereign God has the ability to keep His word, who cannot lie.

39 ‘See now that I, I am He, and there is no god besides Me; It is I who put to death and give life. I have wounded and it is I who heal, and there is no one who can deliver from My hand. 40 ‘Indeed, I lift up My hand to heaven, and say, as I live forever, 41 If I sharpen My flashing sword, and My hand takes hold on justice, I will render vengeance on My adversaries, and I will repay those who hate Me. 42 ‘I will make My arrows drunk with blood, and My sword will devour flesh, with the blood of the slain and the captives, from the long-haired leaders of the enemy.’ ~ Deuteronomy 32:39-42

He lifts up His hand to heaven and declares, “as I live forever.” This awesome scriptural testimony comes from what is known as the Song of Moses. The sovereign God isn't just acting dramatic here. When you see others modeling the gesture or making similar claims, reflect back on the subjects of this passage as a reference point and seek the Lord for insight into relevant comparisons. When he says “there is no one who can deliver from My hand,” you can trust that. When men or angels lift their hands to heaven, give their words and deeds and the context due consideration in that light.

I want to present a notable example of a counterfeit, going back to ancient Egypt. The hand gesture and oath isn't present, but I'll be make some relevant connections later. This ancient literary work submits a challenge to the witness of the Sovereign Yahweh that was recorded in the Song of Moses. “The Pyramid Texts were funerary inscriptions that were written on the walls of the early Ancient Egyptian pyramids at Sakkara the necropolis of Memphis (Unis of the 5th Dynasty, and Teti, Pepi I, Merenre and Pepi II of the 6th Dynasty). These date back to the 5th and 6th dynasties, approximately years 2350-2175 BCE. However, because of extensive internal evidence, it is believed that they were composed much earlier, circa 3000 BCE. The Pyramid Texts are, therefore, essentially the oldest sacred texts known.

The following excerpt is extracted from one of the four so-called resurrection texts.

As translated by Samuel A. B. Mercer
(The letter N. (nomen) is used throughout to indicate the dead pharaoh.)

Utterance 364 (The Pyramid Texts)

609a. To say: O Osiris N., arise.
609b. Horus comes; he reclaims thee from the gods. Horus has loved thee,
609c. he has equipped thee with his eye; Horus has adapted to thee his eye.
610a. Horus has opened for thee thine eye that thou mayest see with it.
610b. The gods have bound to thee thy face; they have loved thee.
610c. Isis and Nephthys have healed thee.
610d. Horus is not far from thee; thou art his ka.
611a. Thy face is gracious unto him; hasten, accept the word of Horus and be satisfied with it.
611b. Hearken unto Horus, it will not be harmful to thee; he has caused the gods to follow thee.
612a. Osiris N., awake. Geb has brought Horus to thee, and he recognizes thee;
612b. Horus has found thee; he rejoices over thee.
613a. Horus has caused the gods to ascend to thee; he has given them to thee that they may illuminate thy face (cheer thee).
613b. Horus has placed thee at the head of the gods; he has caused thee to take the wrr.t-crown, the lady.
613c. Horus has accustomed himself to thee; he cannot part from thee.
64a. Horus has caused thee to live in this thy name of ‘nd.ti.
614b. Horus has given thee his eye, the hard (one);
614c. (he) has placed it to thee (i.e. in thy hand), that thou mayest be strong, and that all thine enemies may fear thee.
614d. Horus has completely filled thee with his eye, in this its name of "Fullness of god."
615a. Horus has corralled the gods for thee,
615b. so that they cannot get away from thee, from the place where thou hast gone.
615c. Horus has counted the gods for thee,
615d. so that they cannot get away from thee, from the place where thou wast drowned...

I'll be making reference to some of these lines. Note that the Horus Eye is placed to the hand.

A more popular rendering comes from a translation by Raymond O. Faulkner

O Osiris the King, stand up! Horus comes and claims you from the gods, for Horus has loved you, he has provided you with his Eye, Horus has attached his Eye to you; Horus has split open your eye for you that you may see with it, the gods have knit up your face for you, for they have loved you, Isis and Nephthys have made you hale, and Horus is not far from you, for you are his essence. May your face be well-disposed to him; hasten, receive the word of Horus, with which you will be well pleased. Listen to Horus, for it will not be harmful to you; he has caused the dogs to serve you. O Osiris the King, awake! Geb brings Horus to you and he recognizes you; Horus has found you, and it will go well with him through you. Horus has caused the gods to mount up to you, he has given them to you that they may make you glad. Horus has set you in front of the gods and has caused you to take possession of all that is yours. Horus has attached himself to you and he will never part from you. Horus has revived you in this your name of 'andjeti, Horus has given you his Strong Eye; he has given it to you that you may be strong and that every foe of yours may fear you. Horus has completely filled you with his Eye in this its name of 'God's Oblation'. Horus has assembled the gods for you, and they will never escape from you in the place where you have gone. Horus has mustered the gods for you, and they will never escape from you in the place where you drowned...

When Freemasons perform the raising of Osiris ceremony in Washington DC's House of the Temple (see here and here), the ritual derives from such as the Pyramid Texts and Coffin Texts, and from those that derive from them like the collection known as the Book of the Dead. If you follow current TV shows you may have noticed a trending of resurrection spells, like in Witches of East End. Their derivation is according to the lies of the Pyramid Texts. There is or will be a form of resurrection but the impostor's version does not compare to the enduring life of the genuine Messiah. The life He has and gives will not be on the basis of spells, amulets, magick squares and incantations performed by the black magick of the sun god's sorcerer priests and priestesses.

16 In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun shining in its strength. 17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, 18 and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades. ~ Revelation 1:16-18

One can hardly discuss these matters without bringing the ankh into the conversation, the symbolic object we see held in the hand of those gods represented as having the key to and power of life. I believe there are instances where the raised Horus hand implies the wielding of the unseen ankh, just like how the winged foot of Hermes on the Goodyear Blimp implies the eye-mazing wand wielded in his hand. It's magic, or perhaps its better labeled, magick.

I recently blogged about the ankh as concealed in the naming of the fictional sci-fi character, Kahn. The name is an anagram that was powerfully leveraged for dramatic modeling of the esoteric themes. (Star Trek: Kahn=Ankh) Here's a relevant example of the hand with the ankh, where the ankh is present but hidden, concealed and revealed in the name. This is the logo of Kahn Academy, which is being heralded as the future of education.

Salman Khan talk at TED 2011 (from ted.com)

While I would like to applaud his effort, I cannot. Am I in favor of ignorance? No, I'm for a proper education, one with a proper basis.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction. ~ Proverbs 1:7

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever. ~ Psalm 111:10

9 Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser, teach a righteous man and he will increase his learning. 10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. 11 For by me your days will be multiplied, and years of life will be added to you. ~ Proverbs 9:9-11

Education for education's sake is like the “art for arts sake” (ars gratia artis) motto of MGM. Even those who think to do good and serve man by their efforts will find themselves having been grossly deceived in their arrogance. Don't be naive. Most see knowledge as power and the reason for acquiring it is to satisfy their desire to rule. For the acquiring of knowledge and power many sacrifice all, including those who take that left hand path to gnosis and enlightenment.

In the garden of Eden, the woman was enticed by such as what Salman Khan is offering students of the Kahn Academy. Here's a passage that explains the clever man's logo.

4 The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! 5 For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 6 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings. ~ Genesis 3:4-7

Why does the logo for Kahn Academy feature a hand as a tree with leaves? Do you understand about the hand as the symbol of Horus? Do you understand about how the serpent Nachash was related to the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil? The other main tree in the garden was the Tree of Life.

Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever” ~ Genesis 3:22

Observe, a hand stretching out and a tree. Do you perceive how the logo of the academy is proclaiming a victory? The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil is implied directly, and identified with Horus. Kahn-as-ankh makes another implication, about the Key of Life in the hand of Horus and the Tree of Life. Think about it. There are 23 leaves on the tree. That's the chromosome number. It's a heritage and DNA bridge thing. Seek the Lord for insight. The coming beast is going to be a poser. Enough said?

More to follow, Lord willing.

  1. Some one can always find something and make it into something, and make something something out of nothing. According to the tablets of Thoth, Thoth the founder of the land of Egypt when it was called Khem, Stated and taught only One God, The Ancient of Days. Thoth stated from his Tablet that Osiris is not a god but a symbol held by the guardian of the porthole. Horus, Isis are symbols with significant lost meanings that no one knows. Because Thoth taught the people of Khem to put the wisdom into a religion so that it keeps it's essence, but essence has been lost through time.
