Moses, the Ark of the Covenant and the Tent of Meeting

What as this Tabernacle in the Wilderness was it just a tent or a symbol of the coming Messiah/Christ? was it based on the Zodiac and was celestial? Was it place of meeting for god and if so the masculine or the feminine? Let us look at the plans for the Tabernacle in the Wilderness/Tent of Meeting also known as the Miskan or O'hel Mo'ed and the men who fashioned it.  

What they would require?

"Then the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel that they receive an offering for me: of every man, whose heart giveth it freely, ye shall take the offering for me. And this is the offering which ye shall take of them, gold and silver, and brass, and blue silk, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen and goats hair. And rams skins colored red, and the skins of badgers, and the wood Shittim [Acacia], oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for the perfume of sweet favor, onyx stones, and stones to be set in the Ephod, and in the breastplate. Also they shall make me a Sanctuary [consecrated place], that I may dwell among them. According to all that I show thee, even so shall ye make the form of the Tabernacle [Tent], and the fashion of all the instruments thereof."  Exodus 25.

Who were these men? 

The LORD said to Moses,

"See, I have chosen Bezalel, son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and I have filled him with a divine spirit of skill and understanding and knowledge in every craft: in the production of embroidery, in making things of gold, silver or bronze, in cutting and mounting precious stones, in carving wood, and in every craft. As his assistant I have appointed Oholiab, son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. I have also endowed all the experts with the necessary skill to make all the things I have ordered you to make: Exodus 31:1-11

All these things they shall make just as I have commanded you." 

We have read the above scriptures and have not asked or understood the importance of reading the scriptures without asking the following questions:

What were their credentials?

The Bible says: The men who were the master-architects and artificers were Bezalel and Oholiab and they also trained a cadre of workmen.

"Now Bezalel and Oholiab, and every skillful [wise] person in whom the LORD has put skill [wisdom] and understanding to know how to perform all the work in the construction of the sanctuary, shall perform in accordance with all that the LORD has commanded. Then Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every skillful person in whom the LORD had put skill, everyone whose heart stirred him, to come to the work to perform it." Ex. 36:1-2.

When using the concordance, the words ' skill and skillful' can be rendered as 'wise and wisdom' and the definition skillful technically, wise in administration, shrewd cunning or crafty, learned [a class of men], prudent, wise ethically. 

The men chosen to construct the 'Tabernacle' were a class, guild or order of craftsmen. Although the 'Concordance' writers and commentators shied away from calling them 'learned men' because of the connotation to the mystery system of Egypt or even Babylon, the land in which, according to the biblical writers, they spent 400 years.  The title of 'learned men' would mean they studied somewhere, and was schooled by someone. That somewhere would have obviously been Egypt and the someone would have been a guild, class or order of men who taught them how to do all that was prescribed and educated to be accounted and given the title 'learned men.'  If the writer had said this that would then open the door to the idea that at least some Hebrews [if not all] in addition to Moses were in a different class than the majority said to be 'enslaved' and ignorant. 

This 'educated class of men' would have gone to the University 'mystery' school system and if they had they would have been sons or daughters of the hierarchy and not the slave class.

"A Mystery school is a university of the soul, a school for the study of the mysteries of the inner nature of man and of surrounding nature. By understanding these mysteries, the student perceives his intimate relationship with divinity, and strives through self-discipline and devotion to become at one with his 'inner' god. "Christ in us..."

In some minds going through a 'school' and becoming 'learned' may also cast a shadow on the fact that the 'Lord' of the Hebrews is said to have put a skill or wisdom into these skilful [cunning] men and it may not have been instantly and supernaturally imparted. According to the Bible Moses went through the Mystery School of Egypt and what skill and wisdom was in him was the ability and aptitude from God brought out entirely. I believe it was the same case with Bezalel and Oholiab as was the case with the prophet Dani-el years later in Babylon.

How do we get to know these ancient people? Let us introduce ourselves to the architects of the tabernacle in the wilderness. I always like to introduce myself to people in ancient times by understanding their name: Names are always very interesting. 

"A name can tell your intrinsic value of the person, place or thing in showing or introducing what or who you are to be in a given location or situation. "

Let us break down the names of these two 'cunning workman' who had been given the vision of the Tabernacle by the Lord.  We will look at their names and zootype representations to see the hidden allusion, and if they are titles and not proper names. A Zootype representation is like Jesus being the Lion of the tribe of Judah and his emblem being the Lion, or Jesus being the lamb of God and his emblem is the lamb. [See Iconography

Here is the K.J.Version: 

Ex. 35:30-35 Moses said to the Israelites, “See, the Lord [Yahweh] has chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. He has filled him with the Spirit of God – with skill, with understanding, with knowledge, and in all kinds of work, to design artistic designs, to work in gold, in silver, and in bronze, and in cutting stones for their setting, and in cutting wood, to do work in every artistic craft. And he has put it in his heart to teach, he and Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as craftsmen, as designers, as embroiderers in blue, purple, and scarlet yarn and in fine linen, and as weavers. They are craftsmen in all the work and artistic designers.

36:1-2 So Bezalel and Oholiab and every skilled person in whom the Lord has put skill and ability to know [Yada] how to do all the work for the service of the sanctuary are to do the work according to all that the Lord has commanded.” Moses summoned Bezalel and Oholiab and every skilled person in whom the Lord had put skill – everyone whose heart stirred him to volunteer  to do the work..."

Here is a Rabbi's mythological views and comments on Bezalel:

"By virtue of his profound wisdom, Bezalel succeeded in erecting a sanctuary which seemed a fit abiding-place for God, who is so exalted in time and space (Exodus R. 34:1; Numbers R. 12:3; Midrash The. 91). The candlestick of the sanctuary was of so complicated a nature that Moses could not comprehend it, although God twice showed him a heavenly model; but when he described it to Bezalel, the latter understood immediately, and made it at once; whereupon Moses expressed his admiration for the quick wisdom of Bezalel, saying again that he must have been "in the shadow of God" (Hebrew, "be'el El") when the heavenly models were shown him (Numbers R. 15:10; compare Exodus R. 1. 2; Berakhot l.c.). Bezalel is said to have been only thirteen years of age when he accomplished his great work (Sanhedrin 69b); he owed his wisdom to the merits of pious parents; his grandfather being Hur and his grandmother Miriam, he was thus a grand-nephew of Moses (Exodus R. 48:3, 4)."

He was just 13? Just the age when he would have become a man and entered into another phase of the mysteries. The Hebrews call this a Bar-Mitzvah [Son of the Commandments or to be worthy of the Commandments] Did Bezalel's name come before his actions or vice versa? Thirteen  is the age for manhood and choosing to follow the right path many religious rituals . 

We in the Christian world were taught or at least I was, that Bezalel and Oholiab were commoners who were miraculously given the skill and wisdom to build the tabernacle.  We believed they had never, ever picked up a chisel or loaded a loom. This was not so. As we know each man and woman in this earth has been given a gift [skill/wisdom] and when it is fully realized that is the wisdom of God given to man. In this wisdom education was the main key.   The highest form of worship is study. "Study to show yourself approved a WORKMAN needing not to be ashamed [of how his/her work stands] rightly dividing the word of truth." This studying was always religious, everything in the ancient world related to a deity [which always related back to the one even when it was corrupted] in study whether it be a craft , the priesthood, or animal husbandry, everyone who could do anything attended a school or apprentice program.  The people of antiquity did nothing of value without a deity in mind....NOTHING! Their names usually revealed who they worshipped and what their job was within the worship. That worship started with study.

According to the same Rabbi's Bezalel was: 

"He was said to be highly gifted as a workman, showing great skill and originality in engraving precious metals and stones and in wood-carving. He was also a master-workman, having many apprentices under him whom he instructed in the arts (Exodus 35:30-35). According to the narrative in Exodus, he was definitely called and endowed to direct the construction of the tent of meeting and its sacred furniture, and also to prepare the priests' garments and the oil and incense required for the service."

How could he have been an Master workman at 13? Two ways:

  1. He was supernaturally gifted on the spot.
  2. He was educated and apprenticed in Egypt and at 13 and went through the Mystery school for priests, masons and architects like Moses. 

Let's look at the names of these men who were skilled craftsmen and maybe we can get a clue as to who they really were. 

  1. Bezale'el [The shadow of El or In the shadow of El], 
  2. Son [son, grandson, child, people, nation, member of a class or guild or order].
  3. Uri [ the son of Fiery] like in the Egyptian Pyramids or Ur-sacred fire-of the Chaldees, flame or light], 
  4. Son [son, grandson, child, people, nation, member of a class or guild or order], (Mose, meaning a son or son of-, signifying a graduate of the Mystery school).
  5. Hur [Hur (hur). [Heb. Chur, "whiteness," but for Hur, 1, and Hur, 2, the meaning is possibly "(the Egyptian god) Horus]." The name [Hur] occurs also on an ancient Hebrew seal, and is found in Akkadian as Huru [Heru], "child."]
  6. Tribe [the branch, staff or rod]
  7. Judah of [the Lion or praise, JUDAH is a lion's whelp], 
  8. Oholiab [the father's tent and a derivation of O'hel: To shine], 
  9. Son [son, grandson, child, people, nation, member of a class or guild or order].
  10. Ahisamach [ my bother is a support or has supported or stands]
  11. Tribe [the branch, staff or rod]
  12. Dan [Judge, serpent or bird]. The Egyptologists already translate the hieroglyph for DAN as DN. 

Remember a name indicates your intrinsic value and names were sometimes a transliterated as a TITLE. By extension, all the names and titles in the above scriptures should read:

"The shadow of Elohim [plural] the guild of the flame/light, the children of Horus [child] the rod of the Lion of praise.  [it] Shines in the Tent [womb] of the Father [an allusion to a wife], the guild/order of my brother stands to judge [Anubis/Osiris] the branch...[the flat of the hand].

Sons of Horus/Heru

~4 sons of Horus and Pole Star with sceptre as dipper~

Please understand this important point: How does name get to be a title and a title become a name? This is IMPORTANT!

This is the case of these architects. A name can also be a title and not a proper name. Here is an example of a title that was mis-translated and used as a name:"

"Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call his name Jesus [that is, “God saves”]. He will be great, and will be called Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.” (Luke 1:30-32)

…behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet [Isaiah], saying, “Behold, the virgin shall be with Child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanu-El,” which is translated “God with us.” (Matthew 1:21-23, citing Isaiah 7:14)"

In both cases a title is used one Jesus or YahShua [Yah saves or Yah's salvation]  and the other Emmanuel or Immanuel [God with us or El].

Although the concordances give you the run around; Amen or Emmanu means faith or confirm. Emmanu-El means 'Faith in Elohim or the Mighty One' and not God save us.  The names are titles and the title were translated. Amen has always had an original meaning:

Side bar:

Can the name Jesus also be a title? I think maybe. The name Yah-Shua is Yah-Oshea which means Yah saves or the saving of Yahweh. there is no 'J' in Hebrew or any other language until 500 years ago when the I was split into two letters. His name was spelled Isus or Iesus in all of the King James translations and Yahweh or hwhy

The name Jehovah is a contraction of the Tetragrammaton above and the vowels of Adonai this leave us with Yahovah or Yehovah. The J replaced the Y and it became Jehovah.  The alternate names, attributes and titles affixed to Yahweh/Jehovah are:

That leaves the name of Jesus or Jehovah-shua [The Lord, My savior or salvation].

Then the scriptures say by the name of Bezalel and Oholiab and their lineage stated in the scriptures really mean:

"In the shadow of the neteru is the flame, the Children of Horus-child, holds up or out  the rod/branch or lineage of [sceptre] as the Lion, shines in [the wife/house] or womb, the son, my brother stands to judge."

Who stands in judgment and for what purpose?

On a mummy case in the British Museum, where Horus is seated on the throne, holding the two sceptres of the judge, Osiris and Isis are standing before him as gods of lower rank, and as he is spoken of by the writer of Deuteronomy, who says, chap. xxxiii. 27, "The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms."

The four disciples ("sons") of Heru (Horus) are shown coming out from a lotus flower. Also Nefertum, son of Ptah, the Creative Fire, is born of the lotus.

The men Bezalel and Oholiab who were craftsmen of the tabernacle had been 'slaves along with all the Hebrews' according to the Bible, and the craft was put into them by the LORD '

"And he has put it in his heart to teach, he [Bezalel] and Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as craftsmen, as designers, as embroiderers in blue, purple, and scarlet yarn and in fine linen, and as weavers. They are craftsmen in all the work and artistic designers."

What is it to KNOW? 

To Know: 3045 Yada` yaw-dah' a primitive root; to know (properly, to ascertain by seeing); used in a great variety of senses, figuratively, literally, euphemistically and inferentially.

"So which one did the Concordance writers choose? The simple meaning, to see or perceive. They did not  3046 yda` yed-ah' (Aramaic) corresponding to --certify, know, make known, teach. [remember no vowels in the Hamitic and Semitic written languages]. And not: 3034 yadah yaw-daw' a primitive root; used only as denominative from ; literally, to use (i.e. hold out) the hand; physically, to throw (a stone, an arrow) at or away; especially to revere or worship (with extended hands); intensively, to bemoan (by wringing the hands):--cast (out), (make) confess(-ion), praise, shoot, (give) thank(-ful, -s, -sgiving). the choice gives us the impression that they were unlearned and unskilled before they saw."

36:1-2 So Bezalel and Oholiab and every skilled person in whom the Lord has put skill and ability to know [Yada] how to do all the work for the service of the sanctuary are to do the work according to all that the Lord has commanded.” Moses summoned Bezalel and Oholiab and every skilled person in whom the Lord had put skill – everyone whose heart [understanding] stirred him to volunteer to do the work..."

Was this something they already knew and had the aptitude for? Or was it supernaturally imparted for the making of the tabernacle and implements of the tabernacle only? I find it hard to believe they were just slaves, they just exodus-ed from Egypt! Let us look there for their possible education: 

"In the common artist workshops in the Old Kingdom, sculptors, painters, artistic carpenters and embalmers (!) worked alongside one another, going about their daily tasks and training their apprentices. These places were called “The Houses of Life” and the training of medical doctors also took place here."

"Craftsmen must have taken on children to learn the skills needed for ceramic, faience, and metalworking, or of sculpture and painting, but of all the paintings that depict the craftsmen in their workshops, it is rare that children are shown. There is documentary evidence, however, about the schooling of sculptors and painters. The inscription of Irtisen initiated his eldest son into his art. An artist had to be familiar with the conventions of representation, proportion, posture, and symbolism. So craftsmen and scribes had to master reading and writing, in hieratic and in hieroglyphic."



Ancient Egyptian society was basically divided into four classes:

The Hebrews according to the Biblical writers of the lower classes of laborers and slaves. But were they really? 

"Besides the pharaohs and eminent wise men, the leading artists were also apparently introduced to at least the lower grades of Mysteries. Certain is, that they shared secret knowledge, because the canonic “Books of Patterns” were also part of secret knowledge and were regarded as sacred. The ancient Egyptians therefore called them “Books of God” and they were looked after by priests in the “Houses of Life”. It was here that young artists were trained."

The One to the left with the left foot forward

Judging by the names of Bezalel and Oholiab these were titles and not proper names. The Father's Tent or the title is Oholiab which is an allusion to the womb as we see in the word Hebrew word Miskan and the parent word in the Egyptian Meshken.

Psalms 139:13 -"For Thou didst form my inward parts; Thou didst weave me in my mother’s womb."

KJV" Genesis 20:17-18 And Abraham prayed unto God. And God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maid-servants. And they bare children. For Jehovah had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah, Abraham's wife.

Stone Tanach: Gen 20:18 that ETERNAL had restrained every orifice in the household of Abimelech--yours may say womb. The Hebrew word is womb, but used not in a specific medical descriptive sense but in the sense of sexual organs."

The Egyptian Meshken:

"In the Stellar Cult the followers of Horus had brought this imagery from the south [of Africa] and now transfer it to the northern heavens, representing uranographically [the chart of the heavens] by the Great Bear constellation and called part of the Constellation the 'MESHKEN as the womb of life or birthplace at the summit of the pole, i.e. a re-birth in heaven symbolically. the Meshken s really a separate constellation." The Origin and Evolution of Religion, pg. 137 by Albert Churchward"

What is Uranography? 

"By this is meant a map outlined by the early sages charting the spiritual constitution and physiology of man, the psychic centers, areas of spiritual force, and all "after the pattern of things in the heavens." Man, the microcosm, is a replica of the heavenly man and the universe."

Or as the Bible puts it...As in Heaven, so on Earth. The symbol of the Davidic/Solomon star: As Above, so Below. Two pyramids one pointing down a the other pointing upward. The macrocosmic heavens and the microcosmic earth and mankind. 

What was the Tabernacle in the wilderness really? 

Moses, said to be the writer of the Torah, named by the Greeks as the Pentateuch re-established a system of worship learned from his Egyptian teachers and priests. Using the Tent of Meeting [O'hel Mo'ed and Miskan ] as the center of the encampment of the children of Israel instead of the stone temples used in Egypt by his fellow priests.  This 'Tent of Meeting' was in essence a celestial picture-drama that revealed the nature of God living in he midst of man at every phase of his life.

Meskhen: In Egyptian, Mes-khen is the interior birthplace or the womb or the birthplace. The creatory of the Great Mother was depicted in the sign of the 'Meshken' to indicate 'the place of bringing forth' by the 'Cow of Heaven' whose “thigh” is the emblem of great magical power in the hieroglyphics. The word Meshken and Shekinah [both feminine in nature] can be found in the Egyptian language as Skhen and Khen meaning a place, hall, bosom, womb, abode and breath.  The Skhen, Shenkina or Meskhen were images of the womb or birthplace as a pre-courser or prototype of a dwelling place for the presence of the creative power of God.

“The Mesa (burthen) of Jahveh shall ye mention no more.”

“When people ask what they mean by the burthen of Jahveh and they say in reply, 

‘What burthen?’ They are to be forsaken.” 

“As for the prophet, and the priest, and the people that shall say, 

The burden of Jahveh I will even punish that man and his house.” Jer. 23:34-36.

The Miskan for the Hebrews was a womb or birthing place in which the 12 tribes gathered. But, how could Yahweh have a womb? He couldn't because he is a spirit but, he could as the mother manifestation. A male figure can not create or birth, he has no womb. This is where the patriarchal society of revisionists erased the feminine aspect of God and made him a 'seed-bearing' male.  This is confusion, later is the same symbol used for what many say is the nation of Israel in the feminine, in the Revelation of Jesus to John: 

"A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars
She was with child and wailed aloud in pain as she labored to give birth.

In Revelation Chapter 12, the woman is described as "clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars" (Revelation 12:1). Note the similarity between this description and the description that Joseph gave of his father Jacob (Israel) and his mother and their children (Genesis 37:9-11). The stars refer to the twelve tribes of Israel. So, the woman in Revelation 12 is said to be Israel.".

Is this a reference back to the Tabernacle in the Wilderness?

Did Egypt have a 12 star reference? 

"Egyptian society had advanced so much that they required an accurate calendar and time scale.
In a story, Osiris had to travel through twelve gates during his journey across the back of Nut. These Twelve gates are 12 stars that rise and set...They had originally 18 bright stars to mark and divide the sky, but due to dusk and dawn, 6 stars are lost from view...12 stars were used to mark time through the night...This gives rise to the twelve zodiac signs and our time scale of 24 hours a day."

The 'Tent of Meeting' was called O'hel Mo'ed. The name Mo’ed means nothing to English speaking people, even to those who read the Bible, but we have grown up with this word all our lives.

The word mo'ed appears in Genesis 1:14-15.

The God said: "Let the lights appear in the sky to separate day form night and to show the time [mo'ed] when days, years and festivals begin, they will shine in the sky to; give light to the earth - and it was done."  

 "Ordinary people merely think how they shall spend their time; a man of talent tries to use it."  Albert Schopenhauer.

Lights in the heavens that appear to give limit and meaning to time. This is the sun, moon. The root word [ore] means to be or become light, to become illuminated or to shine. this is not just for time the deeper hint to the meaning is as follows:

"John 1: 4-5 In him was life: and the life was the light of mankind. And the light shines in darkness: and the darkness did not comprehend it.

"There are two distinct views on the meaning of time. One view is that time is part of the fundamental structure of the universe, a dimension in which events occur in sequence.

A contrasting view is that time is part of the fundamental intellectual structure together with space and numbers within which we sequence events, quantify the duration of events and the intervals between them, and compare the motions of objects."

The word Mo'ed has a variety of meanings and is translated in several ways, including "season," "appointed time," "Feast (s)," "congregation" and "assembly" in the King James Version. Good and honest translators generally look at the context of the verse to determine the appropriate choice of wording.  Unfortunately, not all translators are good and honest. Most try to obscure the original meaning in favor of the newer and more ‘orthodox Christian ’meaning.

The context of Genesis 1:14-16 explains that God created the lights [illuminated ones] in the heavens to mark time. In recognition of this concept, most Bibles translate Mo’ed in Genesis 1:14 as "times and seasons." But, how can you get a time and season without the sun, moon, stars, and planets? So, this time must be based in another understanding from Genesis 1: 3-5.

Then God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. God saw that the light was good. He divided the light from the darkness. Then God called the light day, and He called the darkness night.

Moedim: (mo-ed-deem) The plural form of the Hebrew word for "appointed time” or “appointed festival.”

When speaking of the 'Tabernacle' in the wilderness the term Mo’ed was joined with the word O'hel.   O'hel is translated to mean tent, but possibly the inner tent and the tent of our 'skins' or our bodies or the example of body of the deity the Hebrews worshipped.The understanding was, that our skin was a tent that housed the soul/spirit or the spirit of the great Creator.  This concept was taught to Moses by the priest of Egypt remember he was ‘…educated in all the ways of the Egyptian and mighty in word  and deed.’  

The Akh, Ba and Ka as immortal aspects of the soul. The Ka (k3) was the concept of life force, the difference between a living and a dead person, death occurring when the ka left the body. The Ka was thought to be created by Khnum on a potters wheel, or passed on to children via their father's semen.

Khnum the Potter

Isa: 64:8 But now, O LORD, thou [art] our father; we [are] the clay, and thou our potter; and we all [are] the work of thy hand.

Romans 9:19-21 You will say to me then, “Why does he still find fault? For who can resist his will?” But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?” Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use?

The tent in the wilderness housed the life spirit of God on earth for the Hebrews as a microcosm of the macrocosm. This house tent was considered the womb of God which mirrored the outward tent that was the canopy of the sky.

Nut/The Vault of Heaven

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." Genesis 1:1

"Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host [sun, moon and stars in sacred service] of them." Genesis 2:1

Some accounts say generations instead of hosts, which means course of history of begetting of heaven, or to be born. 

Most Minister get to this understanding by saying the 'tent in the wilderness' represented a pre-Christ form or Jesus, but  they never go so far as to connect the understanding that Christ is in us and the Temple in the wilderness represented is ALL of mankind and mankind with the divine spark of life.  It is an example of what we are SUPPOSED to be!  We're that Temple; we are that Building made without hands. 

I know that's a hard concept to swallow but I will say it again because we have erroneously called it and the symbol below as pagan. 

 'As Above, So Below. As in Heaven, So on Earth." 

The Double Dalet/Delta as seen above in used in Hebrew/Greek and it also means the door of 'the womb' or 'the great mother], 'the doorway to the Sun' and the 'Birth of a Day'. This is the symbol of Venus and the woman with 12 stars around her head. 

The Tent of Meeting: 

The Hebrew word 'ohel means "tent."  Variations of the word are found in Aramaic ('ahala'), Phoenician ('h1), Ugaritic ('hl), and Egyptian ['(a)har(u)].  The Assyrian cognate is alu.  The Vulgate translates both 'ohel and miskan as tabernaculum (occasionally, tentorium), obscuring the discrete meaning of the Hebrew terms.

 The term mo'ed is a nominal form of the verb y'd: "designate," "appear," "come," "gather," "summon," "reveal oneself."  Its basic meaning is "appointed time/place/ sign," "meeting place," "place of assembly," or "to meet by appointment."  The word occurs in Ugaritic (mo'idu) and Egyptian (mw'd).  

How would this One reveal himself or herself? In the heavens first.  The heavens would declare the time ad place as we saw above. That is when those who worshipped would come and that is when the One who called would reveal himself. 

O'hel and Mo'ed combined is a cosmic and earthy story:

"Combining the two words, the phrase 'ohel mo'ed carries the Hebraic interpreted notion of "tent of the place of meeting/assembly/appointment," or  perhaps more interpretively: "Tent where YHWH reveals [Him]self."  

But , God had always revealed him/herself [Anthropomorphic terms] in the world and then the word says: "No man has ever seen God." 

Romans1:19-21 "Since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened."

"No man hath seen God at any time; the only Begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, He hath declared Him" (John 1: 18). 

The Bosom means:  The midst or bottom the same theme when the God showed Moses his backside or his bosom, the heart of the matter. The will, the heart, the glorified purpose for man. 

"Then Moses said, "Now show me your glory."  And the Lord said, "I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. But," he said, "you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live."

Then the Lord said, "There is a place near me where you may stand on a rock. When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by. Then I will remove my hand and you will see my back; but my face must not be seen." Exodus 33:18-23.

How did the revelation take place? 

The skin in which the biblical Yahweh reveals himself, is an allusion to the Messu or the Christ [Greek version] being formed in or revealed in us the flesh tent or suit.  Most people would just stop at the understanding of the Messiah coming in the flesh, but it is not just the Messiah coming as NEW man in the flesh, but the Messiah coming or being formed in ALL OF US in our flesh! It is also an allusion to the divine womb that birthed the universe. The cleft Moses was hidden in was an allusion to the womb, the bottom portion and his rebirth as the savior of the Hebrews in Egypt. 

Joshua was in the Tent all the time and he lived. 


Another word for the Tent in the Wilderness is Miskan.


1. The Etymology and Lexical Definition of Miskan.  Miskan is a nominal form of skn, a verb which has the meaning of "self-submission" (once), "settle," "rest," "stop," "1ive in," "inhabit," "sojourn," "dwell" (in its qal form); "let/make to live/dwell" (in the piel); "settle, "let/make to live/dwell" (in the hiphil).

2. Its Assyrian cognate is sakanu ("set," "lay," "deposit") which yields the nominal form maskanu ("place," "dwelling place").

Here the Miskan/Meshkan is a dwelling place or a place of rest.

"Thus, one may arrive at the preliminary conclusion that the verb ‘skn’ refers generally to some form of non-sedentary dwelling, perhaps "camping" in modern parlance, and that the noun miskan therefore refers to the place of that activity: a non-sedentary "dwelling-place," a "camp," or perhaps a "camp site." The emphasis of miskan is therefore on the nature of the camp--its non-sedentary nature."

But a dwelling place for who or what?

"As a case in point, considerable discussion has been generated concerning how miskan relates to the dwelling place of YHWH as described in the biblical text. R. Friedman defines miskan as the "inner fabric" over which is the "outer fabric" (‘ohel), both comprising a "single structure."

The O'hel Mo'ed was possibly the covering over the Miskan:

"As a case in point, considerable discussion has been generated concerning how miskan relates to the dwelling place of YHWH as described in the biblical text. R. Friedman defines miskan as the "inner fabric" over which is the "outer fabric" (‘ohel), both comprising a "single structure."8  F. M. Cross defines skn "to encamp" or "to tent"; therefore, he suggests that miskan originally meant "tent" and later came to mean "the" tent par excellence.  On the basis of Ras Shamra evidence, G. E. Wright defines miskan as "tent-dwelling." G. H. Davies takes a broader view, defining miskan as "tabernacle, dwelling, dwelling-place, habitation, abode, encampment"; however, he allows that the term may refer to the "shrine as a whole" (Exod 25:9) or "virtually the holy of holies"

Here are the referenced scriptures:

"The people must make a sacred Tent for me, so that I may live among them.  Make it and all its furnishings according to the plan I  will show you." Exodus 25:9

'Make the interior of the sacred Tent, the Tent of my Presence, out of then pieces of fine linen woven in blue, purple, and red wool. Exodus 26:1.

 According to the writer:

In Hebrew  Exodus 26: 1[ above] is the term le 'ohel 'al hammiskan, "to/for [the] tent on/over the  dwelling place," the distinction is apparent.  While it is certainly true that the furniture within the miskan suggests a habitation or a dwelling, the term itself is not synonymous with "tent."

So, he is saying the Miskan and O'hel Mo'ed [Tent of Skin] are two different things.

Miskan almost always is automatically taken to mean "The dwelling of God" or even redefined as "sanctuary," "tabernacle," or "temple," without regard for the actual terminology. 

Miskan, it seems, calls to mind a nonsedentary type of dwelling place: the "camp," not particularly a structure itself, but a place where an object or a being abides.

So the Miskan and Ohel is the site or camp and the event happening or encounter.

The noun miskan (derived from the verb skn) means "dwelling, place."  It concerns a "place" or "site" (similar to the modem word "camp"), and carries connotations of transience.  It should not be limited to a specific form of "dwelling" (particularly not the English "tent" or Latin tabernaculum), as this leads to confusion with 'ohel.

The phrase 'ohel mo'ed is a genitival construct meaning "tent of assembly" or "encounter."  It was the name of the structure in which the Divine and human met, emphasizing the event rather than the structure.  We saw the Egyptian reference for the Miskan [MKHN or NHKM] and that is the word Meshkan meaning womb.

So what was happening in and around this Tent?

The Tabernacle in the Wilderness

The Ohel Mo'ed/Miskan was centralized in the camp of the Exodusing Israelites.  Each tribe surrounded the Tent of the Presence of the Lord.

Above we see the tent was referred to in the Egyptian language as Ohel Egyptian ['(a)har(u)] and Moed: Egyptian (mw'd).

The combination of:  'aHARu Mw'd'

What could this mean in Egyptian the land that the Israelites just exited? Words in the Egyptian language are often affixed with a letter [prefix and suffix intensifying or changing the meaning] just as in Hebrew.  So we can see that the A and U are affixation and the Har is the surest or root word in the Egyptian version of O'hel.

What does Har or Haru mean?

"Horus, Falcon-god [neteru in Zoomorphic type]  'Lord of the sky' and symbol of divine kingship. His name ('Har' in Egyptian) is interpreted as 'the high' or the 'far-off'. "

Horus (Haru) (Falcon) Son, posthumously, of Osiris by Isis , and symbol of divine vengeance. Mythologically, he is the originator of the Egyptian state and it's first sovereign, the land of which He wrested from Seth when He avenged the slaughter of Osiris. Successive Pharaohs were regarded as the Earthly incarnations of Horus. Thus, Horus represents the core of national and dynastic stability, and as such is the divine Source of sovereignty.

Heru means: “The House Above” it is a feminine term.  House or Great House was always considered a term for the woman since the woman was life.  In the same way that the tent of tabernacle was the center of the encampment and symbolized the House of God, the life of Israel and in the same way the Holy Sprit or Shenkina is feminine in Hebrew and carried over to Greek.

Heru or Haru/Horus the son of Osiris who is SYMBOLIZED by a falcon [as it soars through the sky] and the representation of Kingship:

Sir E. A. Wallis Budge states in An Egyptian Hieroglyphic Dictionary (1920:494-500):

Horus in Egyptian is Her, Heru. Now vocalized also as Har, Haru The first letter is an H with a dot beneath it.

  •             Heri -chief, chieftain, master, captain, president, superior, he who has chief charge, control, or authority.

  •             Herit- mistress, chieftains, goddess, upper, superior.

  •             Herit -the sky, heaven, celestial region

  •             Heriti -belonging to the upper regions

  •             Heriu - upper, i.e. high-lying land or estates

  •             Heri - to fly, to ascend in the air

  •             Her -to be far from, to be remote

  •             Heriu -attack

Heru also relates back to Kush the father of Nimrod: When you read the comments below, please remember Genesis 10.

“And the sons of Ham; [were] Cush , and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan . And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtecha: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba and Dedan. And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel , and Erech, and Accad [Akkad and Sumer ], and Calneh, in the land of Shinar .”

Now that the context is established read:

The pre-dynastic and early dynastic kings of Egypt were possibly Sumerians and Sumero-Akkadians [See Kush]. One of their highest god/nerteru [symbol of the Creator]…was depicted as a hawk or falcon. So its hidden meaning must also be contained in the Sumerian language.

In Sumerian, a “hawk” of “falcon” is súr-du (in Akkadian kassûsu) and mu-tin.

Súr-du consists of two words, a noun and an adjective. The noun súr means “large head”, “swollen head”, “veiled head”, “great leader”. It is written with the Sag-gunnu sign, and has the phonetic value of kúš, kušu.

The second part for the Sumerian word for “hawk, falcon” is dú. It is also written as dur. It means “splendid, magnificent, grand, great”; in German “prächtig”. Delitzsch, F. (1914:143)

Thus, to those initiated into the Babylonian Mysteries [which was an extension of the same schools in Egypt where Moses graduated] to the Sumerian and Sumero-Akkadian [Kush] ruling-class in pre-dynastic and early dynastic Egypt , it meant “The Great Kush”, the first Sumerian king, and the father of Nimrod, the mighty hunter. Horus, the hawk or falcon, must have been then a composite figure: In it, Kush and his son Nimrod were depicted as “old Kush”, the father, and “young Kush ”, his son, Nimrod.

The ‘Great Horus’ was a predynastic symbol before the son of Asar and Aset Osiris and Isis].

The other Sumerian word for hawk, falcon is mu-tin. But mu-tin = geš-tin also means “tree of life”, “man of life”, “giver of life”. That is: the young god Dumu-zid (Tammuz), dying each year for the life of the world, so that the plants, animals, and man-kind could keep on living in an endless cycle of death and rebirth. The Sumero-Egyptian hawk or falcon is then also a symbol of the Babylonian messiah and the Osirian story.

Osiris the first born form the dead

The Egyptian equivalent for 'ohel mo'ed (mw'd) is also found in the Tale of Wen-Amon (ca. 1100 B.CB.), referring to a city "assembly," and in a document from Byblos (7th cent. B.C.E.);

The tale of Wen-Amon

Wenamon was either a real or a fictional official of Ramesses XI (1100-1070 B.C.) and the protagonist of the Report of Wen-amon, which serves as an important account of life in the 20th Dynasty. Wen-amon was sent to the Mediterranean for timber, a key resource, which was rear in Egypt in that period. When he returned home, he reported what he had been through to the king. The text of this report depicts Egyptian life and the loss of prestige and military power. The nation was not a world leader anymore, and the king had become a recluse, kept in ignorance by his ambitious officials.

The Tent in the wilderness was  The Tent of Meeting or the Appointed Tent- anyone who sought the Lord shall enter into the tent. Refers back to the Kushite empire in predynastic Egypt . It also refers back to the Tree of life in the mist of the Garden [midst of the encampment] and the Life giving woman, and finally the messianic reference of the Greater Messu and the Messu or Christ in us the hope of Glory.

The Hebrew Ark -

Aron Kodesh ( Ark ) – it is the focal point of any synagogue. The Ark is a cupboard in which the Torah scrolls are kept.  It is fixed in the wall of the synagogue that faces Jerusalem (usually the east wall).  In front of the Ark hangs a heavily embroidered curtain, as Exodus 26:31-36 tells us that in the Tabernacle a curtain hung in front of the Ark.   Originally the Ark was a wooden box covered with gold, placed in the Tabernacle, in which the two tablets of stone containing the 10 Commandments were kept during the forty years in the wilderness. Ner Tamid (everlasting light) – this is placed above the Ark.  

Moses the Priest:

When Moses went to the tent [Ohel Moed] to talk with the Lord, he heard the Lord speaking to him form above the lid [Kaporet] on the Ark [Aron], between the two cherubim.'

 "And when Moshe would come into the OHEL MO'ED to speak to Him, he would hear God's voice speak to him from above the KAPORET above the ARON between the two keruvim, and then He would speak to him." (see 7:89, the end of Parshat Naso).

The Hebrew word for Ark is Aron - but what does that mean in Egyptian or Ethiopian Amharic?

'The Modern Hebrew language is a Semitic language of the Afro-Asiatic language family. The Semitic languages are the only Afro-Asiatic subfamily based outside of Africa; however, in historical or near-historical times, some Semitic speakers crossed from South Arabia back into Ethiopia, so some modern Ethiopian languages (such as Amharic) are said to be Semitic rather than belonging to the substrate Cushitic or Omotic groups. A minority of academics, eg A. Murtonen (1967), dispute this view, suggesting that Semitic may have originated in Ethiopia .)' But the Semites gained their language from the Canaanites and the Egyptians. Ancient Hebrew was clearly African in origin.

'The form of the Ark of the Covenant was probably inspired by some article of the furniture of the Egyptian temples. But, it should not be represented as one of those sacred bari, or barks, in which the gods of Egypt were solemnly carried in procession; it had, very likely, been framed after the pattern of the naos of gold, silver, or precious wood, containing the images of the gods and the sacred emblems.'

'For there was a tabernacle constructed and fitted out; the foremost, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the showbread; which is called the sanctuary. And behind the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holy of Holies; which had a golden altar of incense, and the ark of the covenant overlaid with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant; And over it the cherubim of glory shadowing the mercy seat".

'According to some modern historians of Israel, the Ark, in every way analogous to the bari used upon the banks of the Nile, contained the sacred objects worshipped by the Hebrews, perhaps some sacred stone, meteoric or otherwise. Such a statement proceeds from the opinion that the Israelites during their early national life were given not only to idolatry, but to its grossest form, fetishism; that first they adored Yahweh in inanimate things, then they worshipped him in the bull, as in Dan and Bethel, and that only about the seventh century did they rise to the conception of an invisible and spiritual God.

But this description of Israel 's religious history does not tally with the most certain conclusions derived from the texts. The idolatry of the Hebrews is not proven any more than their polytheism; hence the Ark , far from being viewed as in the opinion above referred to, should rather be regarded as a token of the choice that Yahweh had made of Israel for his people, and a visible sign of his invisible presence in the midst of his beloved.

The Amharic word for the Ark [Aron] of the covenant is Tabot.  Today each Ethiopian church has a replica of the Tabot.  

The word Tabot is from our classical language Ge'ez. Our Ethiopic languages, Ge'ez, Amharic, Tigriña, Tigre and others are classified as South Semitic and they are close to the ancient languages of the South Arabic inscriptions. All of them share a common stock of Hebrew loan words. Our word for "idol," for example, is taot and comes from Hebrew ta'ut, "mistake." [see the example below]

The word tabot is derived from Aramaic tebota, also related to Heb-rew tebah (plural, tebot) both mean "box, case" or a "chest" of some sort. In the Hebrew Scriptures tebah is the original term for Noah’s "ark." But the expression, "Ark of the Covenant" is translated from " noe'aron ha-berith."

'Aron is a synonym of tebah and means something larger than a "box" or "case," something like a "big chest" or "cupboard."

The Sacred Bari or Barque/Ark

Our use of the word tabot may go back to the Aramaic-speaking community of Judean warriors on Elephantine [Egypt] Island , opposite Aswan , just north of the first cataract of the Nile . The whole area is now under water at the Aswan Dam. The Judean community at Elephantine built a Temple there like the one in Jerusalem and offered all the prescribed sacrifices. Aron and Tabot is synonymous, so is possibly Tuat, Taot and Tuaat or Thoth related.

Tuaat/Thoth: He was the 'One who Made Calculations Concerning the Heavens, the Stars and the Earth', the 'Reckoner of Times and of Seasons'.

Thoth was the reckoner of the Moedim [Times and Seasons] as was the vizier of Egypt the position Joseph was supposidly given. Thoth played a crucial role in the design and orientation of many famous pyramids, temples and ziggurats. Which were astrological in nature.  This was true also for the Tent of Meeting or Ohel Mo'ed, designed by Moses. 

Thoth and the Tree of Life with Pharaoh holding the Shen above 2 hands

What of the brother of Aaron is his name inherent in the Ark or Aron?

In the Book of Exodus we see the one God [Ihuh]superseding all the other gods, El-Shaddai and the Elohim, when he assumes the suzerainty and orders that a sanctuary be built in which he shall be lifted up. This shrine or tabernacle was to be the hitherto unknown body of solar glory, or body of the resurrection, that temple not to be built with hands, eternal in the heavens of consciousness. 

"He subdues the dwellers in the darkness and there is none who can resist his power in the horizon." "He shineth like a new king in the East." "The great god who is there is Ra himself . . . the water of Maati is the road by which Atum-Ra goes to traverse the fields of divine harvest." 

"The Hebrews fell heir [?] to the Egyptian wisdom and appropriated Egyptian material"  Alvin Boyd Kuhn



Ohel Moed  

Ohel: A Hebrew root meaning "radiate in all directions", and forms the foundation of the "Ohel Mo'ed", the tent of meeting.  'Ahal [aw-hal]' a primitive root; to be clear:--shine.

Mo'ed means: Appointed times, and seasons [Feasts]  Leviticus 23 summarizes all the major feasts of the Lord. To distinguish between the different characteristics of the various types of days, the Hebrew words help us to understand how God looks at His special times.

The word for "feasts of the LORD," and "My feasts," in verse 2, and verses 4, 37, 44 is the Hebrew mo'ed, Strong's #4150, which means "appointed season or set time, solemn feast, congregation, set feast."

Can we then say, the 'Ohel Mo'ed' was a tent representing the radiance or presence of the Lord as a symbol to designate the Feasts appointed times?  What would that be in simpler terms? What would be a sign to designated the times and seasons? The sun, moon and stars? And what shines the brightest?  The Sun and it represented to the ancients the source of life, without it the would not live a day.  Aten was the representation of the Sun to Ankhenaten, said to be the Egyptian author of monotheism.

Here is one account of the 12 tribes that were gathered around the Tabernacle in the wilderness. What were they representative of?

'Jacob’s sons, who became the 12 tribes of Israel , are actually 12 different soul roots from which the Jewish people descend. These roots correspond with the 12 signs of the zodiac, the 12 Jewish months, 12 letters of the Hebrew alphabet and 12 attributes of the soul, such as sight, anger, speech and thought.' [excerpts from the Kabala].  The number 12 is also in association with the great pyramid and DNA.'

Hebrew: There are twelve fruits of the Tree of Life and twelve gates of the Heavenly City . There are twelve loaves of the Table of the Temple , which represented the months of the year. Aaron had twelve precious stones in his breastplate. There were twelve sons of Jacob. Sign of the Kabaalistic Tree of Life.

Christian: There are twelve Fruits of the Spirit; Tribes of Israel and there are twelve Apostles. There are twelve gates and foundation stones of the Holy City , with name of 12 apostles Twelve different kinds of fruits for healing of the nations.

Twelve represents completeness.

The teaching of a priest of the Mysteries included Astrology and Astronomy. O'hel Mo'ed was a representation of the Sun with the tribes being the stars/planets of the Zodiac.

The Mazzaroth:

1.    mazzarah (He Resh Zayin Mem) M(ah)ZZ(aw)R(aw)H, maz-zaw-raw’; apparently from the Heb. nazar, naw-zar’, a primary root, to hold aloof, here specifically to set apart (to sacred purposes), i.e. devote – consecrate, separate, thus used here in the sense of distinction (only in the plural), perhaps collectively as the Mazzaroth.

2.    mazzalah (He Lamed Zayin Mem) M(ah)ZZ(aw)L(aw)H, maz-zaw-law’; apparently from the Heb. nazal, naw-zal’, a primary root, to drip, or shed by trickling: distill, drop, flood, (cause to) flow(-ing), gushout, melt, pour (down), running water, stream, thus in the sense of raining; a constellation, i.e. Zodiacal sign (perhaps as affecting the weather); -- planet.

The book of Enoch according to one source:

The catholic Church rejected the Slavonic and Ethiopic Book of Enoch from its canon because of its vast antiquity could not coincide with the limit of the 4004 years B.C. assigned to the world ‘s creation. It presents Enoch’s translation into heaven from the first to the tenth.

  • In the Eighth Heaven, called Muzaloth, a place of the changing of the Season.
  • In the Ninth Heaven, called Kuvachim, the Houses of the Signs of the Zodiac.
  • The last, Tenth Heaven is called Aravoth from which Enoch recognized the constellation whence came our first ancestors, the star Altair.

The O'hel Mo'ed would be a representation of the Clear Sign of the Feasts or the Shining or illumination of the Times and Seasons and along with the 12 tribes the unit represented the sign of the Mazzaroth. 

The Zodiac in the age of the Egyptian was not a calculator for the individual but ,was allied with astronomy as a tool to understand the times and seasons for the purpose of agriculture.

We see that the O'hel Mo'ed was a Mazzarothic -Tabernacle that shone in the desert with the 12 tribes affixed around it.  Another light bearing [ illumination, revelation, inspiration] object was Moses' priesthood was commissioned to use the Urim [Arurim] and Thummim which shone like a light show when used and revealed Yes or affirmative or No.

'Urim means "light/fire," and Thummim "perfection."  We are told that "the Urim and the Thummin" were to be on Aaron's heart when he goes in before the Lord (Exodus 28:15-30; Numbers 27:21).  In the blessing of Moses they appear as the crowning glory of the tribe of Levi (Deuteronomy 33:8,9).  In what way the Urim and Thummin were consulted is quite uncertain.' These stones were said to be black and white but the truth is not known.

The heart in Egyptian is AB meaning heart-soul. The AB is what was to be weighed in the balances of Maat after death in the underground hall of judgment.  It was weighed against the Feather of Truth.  The mummy of Osiris was given a red stone to symbolize the new heart or AB, and it was placed in the mummy's breast to bring back life.  


All these images have an Egyptian type or shadow.  Look at another fire symbol:

The name YHWH is called the “Shem HaMeforesh” or “Brilliant Name of Fire.” It is often simply referred to as “HaShem” (lit. “The Name”), reflecting its principality. Some regard the Word as a composite of the past, present, and future tense forms of the verb root, “to be” hayah. Which is the name represented by the Tetragrammaton  [hwhy] the name revealed to Moses on the mount.

'..he [ Moses] led the flock across the desert and came to Sinai the holy mountain.  There the angel of the Lord appeared to him as a flame coming from the middle of a bush.  Moses saw that the bush was on fire but that it was not burning up...When the Lord saw that Moses was coming closer, he called to him from the middle of the bush and said Moses, Moses.' Exodus 3: 1-4.

'The Egyptians were Fire worshippers, because they believed that fire was [a part] the Creator of the universe, and built their great Pyramids [Pry=Fire] in order to worship the God of Fire [represented by the Sun] and the pyramid age goes back to  3300B.C...' pg. 68-69.'

What is Fire worship?

When the term Fire Worship is used we must take it with a grain of salt.  To worship fire was not exactly what the Egyptians priesthood was doing.  They understood that Fire, the essence of all life as represented by the atom. The Pyramid was the link between heaven and earth and a reflector for the sun, the sun being the biggest object in the sky and that object represented the Creator and the fire [ heat, warmth, light, growth] were his blessings to mankind, without fire [Sun] we would die.  

To worship [acknowledge and understand] this concept was the height of science as we can see. To the Hebrew as to the Egyptian the highest form of worship is study. 

II Timothy 2:15 states, “Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

What about Aristotle and the concept of the Fire-Atom?

'Atoms are the fundamental building blocks of chemistry, and are conserved in chemical reactions. An atom is a microscopic structure found in all ordinary matter around us. Atoms are composed of subatomic particles: electron, proton, and neutron.

Sometime before 330 BC Aristotle asserted that the atoms of fire, air, earth, and water actually change when making new combinations to form the objects that we see. But changes in nature exhibit direction and not chaos. To treat this issue of direction in change, Aristotle asserted the principles of "in potency" and "becoming" to deal with what he saw as the primary flaw in Democritus's atomism--Democritus's insufficient explanation for the direction of change among the atoms:

'When air is produced from water, the same matter has become something different, not by acquiring an addition to it, but has become actually what it was potentially, and, again, water is produced from air in the same way."

Accordingly, Aristotle concluded that every material object in the universe has two essential components: the 1) potential matter and the 2) actual matter. The potential matter consists of the atoms of fire, air, earth, and water that can change from one potential condition to another and can be observed directly. In contrast, the actual matter, such as the statue into which the bronze is cast, can appear or disappear depending on what a sculptor does with the bronze.

'Of things which do not exist but are contained by time some were, e.g. Homer once was, some will be, e.g. a future event; this depends on the direction in which time contains them; if on both, they have both modes of existence.'

Where did Aristotle get is information from? According to George G. M James in his brilliant book Stolen Legacy:

'We are told in the Timaeus of Plato that aspirants for the mystical wisdom visited Egypt for initiation and were told by the priest of Sais ; that 'you Greeks are but children' in the Secret Doctrine, but were admitted to information enabling them to promote their spiritual advancement.'

The history of Aristotle's life, has done him far more harm than good, since it carefully avoids any statement relating to his visit to Egypt ...this silence of history at once throws doubt upon the life and achievements of Aristotle. Aristotle is said to have spent 20 years under the tutorship of Plato who had a preoccupation with Egyptian and all things Egyptian as seen in his treatise Republic, Timeaus and Laws.

What else was known? The Fire Atom was an Egyptian concept and the iconography used in story-telling to make the initiates remember the story and relate it to science. George G. M. James goes on to say:

' In the history and compilation of Greek philosophy by Aristotle and his followers, there are two men whose names are associated with authorship of the extraordinary number of scientific books; and the names of theses men are Democritus himself and Aristotle. [Diogenes, Laertius Bk. 9p.445-461; Bk. 5 p. 465-467] Pg. 76-77.

The fifth point which deserves important mention is the fact that the history and compilation of Greek philosophy by Aristotle and his followers, it has been discovered that wherever there has be possession of large collections of scientific books, there has also been direct or indirect association with Alexander the Great. Democritus is said to have accompanied Alexander the Great on his campaign against Egypt. [ Zeller's History of Phil. p. 83; Diogenes Laertius Bk. 2. p.471].

On the other hand, Aristotle's contact with Alexander the Great is well known, since he was the tutor of the young prince, at the Macedonian palace. [Rogers Student History of Phil. p. 104]"

So, they stole the books, burnt the rest and put their name on the ones they stole and pretended to be the smartest people in the universe. Sound like His-Story to me.

The late Senegalese philosopher, anthropologist and historian Cheikh Anta Diop has three of propositions:

1) Plato is an optimist after the fashion of the Heliopolian theology.

2) The heritage of Egyptian civilization deserves greater attention as a western heritage.

3) There are elements in the heritage of Egyptian education which tend to suppress the advancement of science.

What Diop is saying is:

"When you ignore the root you will not be able to understand or eat the fruit!"

The western world has taken the essence of the Egyptian priesthood [which is anything that they assign a doctorate to in today's society] and have replaced that essence with a counterfeit that has elements of the truth. The priesthood has been fragmented into 1001 different specialties.

If you look in a college catalog you will see the Egyptian University System.  If you go in front of a judge or have a lawyer, go to the doctor for surgery, sit in a college classroom, or whatever you do, those people that teach, judge, mentor, builder, preach or heal you are in a fragmentary priesthood.  

Imhotep was all in one who accomplished all the feats that make up the pantheon of Doctors we employ for out daily life. 

He was the world's first named architect who built Egypt 's first pyramid, is often recognized as the world's first doctor, a priest,. scribe, sage, poet, astrologer, and a vizier and chief minister, though this role is unclear, to Djoser (reigned 2630–2611 BC), the second king of Egypt 's third dynasty. He may have lived under as many as four kings. An inscription on one of that kings statues gives us Imhotep's title as the "Chancellor of the King of lower Egypt", the "first one under the king", the "administrator of the great mansion", the "hereditary Noble", the "high priest of Heliopolis ", the "chief sculptor", and finally the "chief carpenter. 

The Priesthood in Egypt was not just what we consider as religious, religion encompassed ever area of life - it was spiritual as was Astrology, Astronomy, Physics, Geometry, linguistic, Geology, Medical, Agricultural Governmental, all balled up in a concept of Theocracy. The priesthood Moses came from that root and he and his learned class of man could start and maintain nation!

This is the world the biblical Moses grew up in - He was trained in ALL the wisdom of the Egyptians.  He was trained to rule a Nation. Soon after the invasion of the Greeks things changed.

Why are we always talking about the Greeks?  Because the Hellenistic viewpoint is the foundation for Occidental [Western] society and Western society is the foundation for everything we perceive as European.  It is also His-Story and where Plato got his information and concepts from is very important. 

The Fire Atom concept relates back to Egypt where uneducated people would say they worshipped fire because of how the pyramids were set up.  The truth is the Pyramids were set up to understand the times and seasons and relate to the Creator of the universe and by doing so understand ourselves.  The so-called fire worship was the science of the priesthood.  The uninitiated and the playa-haters viewed it as worship of god and goddess worship, but it was not.

The concept of the SUN the brightest thing in the sky and the essence of that light being the unseen Atom/Atum/Creator was understood by the ancient Egyptian long before the cathode, atom bomb, electron microscope of the modern European.  Therefore, to say Egyptians were Fire-worshippers looking at the phenomenon in the simplest terms we then see everything myopically. Would we say then that Christians are lamb worshippers, Islamists are rock worshippers, and Jews are ancestor worshippers?  The Lamb, Rock, Ancestors are just symbols of a greater truth, just like Fire was the symbol of the Creator His largest representation was the Sun.

Gold representative of the Sun refers to Alchemy - the transition of consciousness.

'Alchemy is born of Kemet - Alchemy is an early protoscientific practice combining elements of chemistry, physics, astrology, art, semiotics, metallurgy, medicine, mysticism, and religion. The alchemic symbol for the Sun is gold. The tip or capstone of the ancient pyramid was to be encased in gold and they tied to duplicate this feat in the year 2000 at the millennium.'

The Tabernacle in the Wilderness was a symbol of the 'Heavenly Womb' and the 12 tribes represented the Mazzaroth in its 12 divisions. It was all a picture of the skies and how life came in the earth and in man. The same pictures on the temple walls and halls of Egypt and a representation of the Zodiac was used as an example of the wilderness encampment of Israel and its birth as a nation. This information has been obscured by the ravages of time, thievery and racial and radical shifts from, east to west and female to male. It is my hope that we will see the tabernacle in the sky and praise God the way our ancestors had for millions of years.

Exodus 25:8-9 - "And let them make Me a sanctuary that I may dwell among them. According to the pattern of the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all its furnishings, just so you shall make it."

Hebrews 8:5 - "... who serve the copy and shadow of the heavenly things, as Moses was divinely instructed when he was about to make the Tabernacle. For He said 'See that you make all things according to the pattern shown you on the mountain'."

Soncino Zohar, Shemoth, Section 2, Page 149a - "... the structure of the Tabernacle corresponds to the structure of heaven and earth."

Soncino Zohar, Shemoth, Section 2, Page 231a - "Now, the Tabernacle below was likewise made after the pattern of the supernal Tabernacle in all its details. For the Tabernacle in all its works embraced all the works and achievements of the upper world and the lower, whereby the Shekinah [feminine] was made to abide in the world, both in the higher spheres and the lower. Similarly, the Lower Paradise is made after the pattern of the Upper Paradise, and the latter contains all the varieties of forms and images to be found in the former. Hence the work of the Tabernacle, and that of heaven and earth, come under one and the same mystery."

Soncino Zohar, Shemoth, Section 2, Page 235b - "Now, the lower and earthly Tabernacle was the counterpart of the upper Tabernacle, whilst the latter in its turn is the counterpart of a higher Tabernacle, the most high of all. All of them, however, are implied within each other and form one complete whole, as it says: "that the tabernacle may be one whole" (Ex. XXVI, 6). The Tabernacle was erected by Moses, he alone being allowed to raise it up, as only a husband may raise up his wife. With the erection of the lower Tabernacle there was erected another Tabernacle on high. This is indicated in the words "the tabernacle was reared up (hukam)" (Ex. XL, 17), reared up, that is, by the hand of no man, but as out of the supernal undisclosed mystery in response to the mystical force indwelling in Moses that it might be perfected with him."
