Is the Rapture Real?

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

So you have read and studied a whole lot of metaphysical books. You have learned that most of the concepts from the Christian bible were copied from earlier cultures – in particular the Kemetic (Ancient Africans of Egypt).  You have experimented with meditation and you have experienced the altered state known as trance, but still after all of you have done. Stowed away in a small crook within your mind is the idea that there still may be a rapture or a second coming where God will call up the righteous.

So, let’s deal with it.

The book of revelations is the most profound and scariest book in the bible, because no matter what people say about it being real or not. It was the book that most hellfire and brimstone preachers used to drive people (especially wayward youth) into the church. Consequently, when most of us embrace Kemetic spirituality, we can read, study, etc. but this Christian concept makes some of us keep our foot grounded in Christianity just in case we might be wrong and the rapture occurs.

I know because I used to do the same thing and even remember some people who were supposed to be spiritual that got caught up in the hype.  In fact, when I was growing up it was predicted that the rapture was going to take place in, you guessed it, 1999. What made this year even more significant was that one of my favorite artist, Prince, wrote a hit song about it. I remember so many people at my parents’ church were disgusted about this song because the lyrics simply stated that they were going to party until the end of the world. This negative attention of course, made more people purchase the album.  I remembered when the date neared and got closer to the year of 1999, people began talking about all of these different prophecies and other predictions. Those of you who lived through it will remember that they were talking about how the clocks were not going to work because they were not setup correctly.  So, when the clocks struck 1999, the power grids and other public services were going to cut off.  You remember?

Then, when January 1, 1999 came. People gasped, took a breath and realized that the end was not going to occur that day, but instead. It was going to take place in 2012.

Basically, I share this because the end has always been predicted to occur. The reason most people believe that a rapture is going to take place is because Christianity has been pushed from an emergency, crisis and fear perspective, instead of from a loving perspective. This is why most zealous Christians try to encourage people to attend their church in case some horrifying event occur. As a result of most Christians focusing solely on the horrifying events, they gravitate towards any apocalyptic signs and claim that it is connected with the rapture, which is really a lie.  Basically, these people have told themselves a lie for so long and so loud, that they only hear others like them and they actually believe it.

The facts are that the term “rapture” does not even appear in the bible.  While Paul speaks of a “Second Coming” he does not claim or even imply that the righteous will simply disappear when all hell break lose because it would indicate that God or Jesus is abandoning the very world that he came to save.

Unfortunately because so many Christians are crisis driven they miss the truth about the rapture.

If people would stop for minute and look at the concept from a metaphorical perspective, they would see that the Second Coming is simply about Jesus returning and bringing peace, justice and prosperity to the oppressed. Who was the first to declare this? You guessed it, Osar (Osiris).

Osar as Lord of KAMTA (the Black Lands)

This means that the Book of Revelations is really a book about faith.  What Paul was implying was that when all hell breaks lose that is when you are supposed to have your greatest faith in your Higher Self or Osar.  This means you are not supposed to give up (sorry Left Behind fans) but Fight.  Most miss it because they are not familiar with the original Kemetic texts which indicates that the First Coming refers to our Osar being present when we took our first breath after birth.  The Second Coming refers to our Osar returning back to our life because we as Hru FOUGHT (willed) for Osar to take an active role in our life. Remember, the Higher Self will not intercede or interfere in our life unless called upon to do so, which is the reason the Divine will not stop people from ingesting poison.

Understand. Yes! We are living in the last days, but we – the Sons & Daughters of HRU – have always been living in the last days because this physical realm is governed by Set. Set, the youngest brother of Osar is selfish, egotistical, heinous and war driven, which means there is no way we will ever get peace, true success, prosperity, financial wealth, etc. or our inheritance from him because these are all ethereal.

The only way we can save humanity is by willingly embracing Osar.

Why We Will Survive Doomsday?

5 07 2012

On more than one occasion, I have to explain the importance of African cosmological thinking like the maa aankh.  Here recently, I was asked what were my thoughts on the end of the world and here is where I saw the greatest benefits from African cosmologies.

As many of you know, for the past few years now, there has been talk about the world coming to an end. I don’t know about you but we have been here before. History will show that people felt this way 1799, 1899 and I remember people talking this way in 1999.  Now the new thing is 2012, because of the Mayan calendar, which now some scholars are claiming is incorrect calculations.  Still this doesn’t stop doomsday prophets from standing up and claiming that the end is near.  Then to take advantage of the publics’ ignorance and fear, there have numerous doomsday shows, documentaries of people like Nostradamus, and movies like 2012 that have been airing.  And, the one thing I noticed is that it seems like every time there is a major change people return to this Doomsday Thinking, and become increasingly more violent.

I thought about this and wondered why do people feel this way every time there is a change?  It dawned on me that this is a part of Western cultural thinking – particular Christian influence.  Traditional Christian beliefs hold before the Second Coming, that there will be all sorts of chaos, violence, wars, etc., which means that if none of this calamity existed. Christianity would not seem legit. To many traditional Christians the future doesn’t seem too bright, in fact, when my wife and I were trying to have children. I had one Christian individual say that they wouldn’t want to bring up a child in this world today.

 What shocked me about this statement was that I couldn’t see how was life easier in the 1960s or any time prior, as it compared to today? Isn’t it interesting that more technological advances we seem to get, the more depressed, pessimistic, violent, unethical, etc. that people tend to become? At first, I couldn’t understand why I saw things as being different, then I remembered that Christian cosmology begins with order and degrades to chaos, such as with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Every since Adam and Eve were kicked out of the Garden, life has become progressively worst, which is why traditional Christian in an odd way, look forward to all of this calamity, because it signifies the coming of the Lord.

African cosmologies don’t see things this way because they all began by creating order out of chaos.  Proof of this can be seen in all of the Kamitic creation theories, which start by saying that there was nothing that existed but a great chaotic void, until the self-created God caused the Maa to come into existence, which brought forth law and order.  In the Yoruba traditions, a similar story is told of hos there was a great void that existed until the Great Almighty God, Olodumare gave his son Obatala a long silver chain to descend upon, so that he could empty from a snail shell he was carrying earth onto the waters, a five fingered guinea fowl to scatter the soil all over, and a palm nut in order for a tree to rise from the earth, so that he can descend into the newly created world, naming the place where he landed “Ile –Ife.”

It is this cosmological thinking that is the epitome of African thought.  It is because of this theory and other African theories like this that made it possible for people to resist slavery.  Basically the train of thought goes like this, where some see chaos, African thinkers see a way to create balance the way God does. This is why in this bleak world we live in, those influenced by traditional Africans thinking still have faith and hope because they live knowing that what is done today, will affect tomorrow. Rather than sitting around in fear of the future, wasting thousands of dollars building shelters, bunkers, etc. under the ground, in the ocean, or on the moon.  African thinkers prefer to put their faith in something they know will work and that is the concepts and principles mapped out by their ancestors.

Maa Aankh

This is why I have faith that things will change because according to the maa aankh, changing times symbolized by the Ra Atum (the setting sun) does not necessarily signify the end, but it is the end, as we know it. To understand what I mean by this we have to understand that this change was brought upon us by the preceding moment in time Ra (midday sun), which symbolizes the rashness of youth, over zealousness, lack of maturity, lack of spiritual tradition, a lack wisdom, spiritual ignorance, impetuousness, and so on. The color of the Ra moment is red, which is the color of hot, hence caution! But, no one is trying to heed the words of the elders. So, people (in general) today are experimental mode and trying anything just because it feels good.  Like the dog that never gets walked, once the chain is taken off runs dangerously free, or the coming of age child leaving their conservative parents’ home for college finding they have the freedom to do anything they want.  This is the state that the society appears to be in, where there are no ethical or social restraints.  This is what is leading to society’s downfall and ultimate demise; it is the experimental phase. It is sad that people don’t see the importance of spiritual traditions and don’t understand that for a greater majority.  It is the lack of spiritual traditions that makes people seek out other ways of expression such as the use of drugs, etc.

But, like I said, I remain optimistic, because the end does not mean the end of everything, just the end, as we know it.  In order to survive there are a lot of things that will have to go in order to make way for the new. This is they cycle of life, the maa aankh.  This may appear to be an unfortunate thing only because our lower self does not like change, but it is very fortunate because out of change comes new things, new opportunities, etc. Some who are already seeing the benefits of the Amun Ra rebirthing period are already noting that some of the traditions that use to work are no longer valid in these changing times. So, don’t fear the change.  In fact, don’t give power to the anxiety, fear and worries of the lower self.  Instead embrace it and take advantage of it by discovering and anchoring yourself in what you know works versus what you think and believe.
