Rediscovering Amen Ra
Amen is used by Christians; Jews and Muslims. It originated from ancient Egypt. The Egyptian deity, who was the primary deity, was known as Amen-Ra. ‘Amen’ means hidden or concealed – that which is invisible. The word ‘Ra’ means light or fire. Amen-Ra, therefore, is the ‘hidden one’ revealed by the light or fire. It can also be pronounced Amon, Am·mon and Amun, since the vowel is interchangeable.
The sun which we are able to see, represented to the Egyptians, the unseen and ‘unrecognizable God’; The Invisible Force; The Field. It is that which is not only said to be “hidden,” but whose name also is “hidden,” and whose form, or similitude is said to be “unknown”. So Amen Ra is not the sun. It is The Invisible, Life-Giving Field which is represented by the sun in this sphere.
The Hidden Meaning of Amen Revealed
Now the word Amen means a lot more than ‘so be it’ or ‘I agree’ as we are made to believe by some. The Catholic Encyclopedia has this to say:
Finally, we may note that the word Amen occurs not infrequently in early Christian inscriptions , and that it was often introduced into anathemas (curses) and Gnostic spells. Moreover, as the Greek letters which form Amen according to their numerical values total 99 ( alpha =1, mu =40, epsilon =8, nu =50), this number often appears in inscriptions, especially of Egyptian origin, and a sort of magical efficacy seems to have been attributed to its symbol. It should also be mentioned that the word Amen is still employed in the rituals both of Jews and Mohammedans.
(The above has since been removed and the reference reedited.)
Here we have the Catholic Encyclopedia informing us of several things:
- The Word Amen originated with the Egyptians – Amen Ra.
- Amen was used by the Gnostic (the original Christians) in their curses, offerings, and spells.
- That the word is believed to have magical powers and by using the word one can produce magical effects.
So the word ‘Amen’, is associated with a pagan, Egyptian deity Amen ra, and is used in magic spells, curses, and offerings to him. It also did not originate with the Jews. It was instead, copied from the Egyptians because of the power it is believed to contain. The word is not simply to be used at the end of a sentence or prayer to acknowledge agreement as we have been told. Therefore the question you must ask is: Have I been lied to?
Is Jesus And Amen Ra One And The Same
In the book of Revelation Jesus refers to himself as the Amen:
And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
Is Jesus here saying that he is the Amen?
