Christianity is the One True Messianic Faith

Hathor, the mother of the son of God is shown overshadowed.

The Ra-Horus-Hathor Narrative

Alice C. Linsley

It is popular to describe Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as "Abrahamic" faiths, but it is inaccurate and the cause of much confusion. Only Christianity adheres to the beliefs of Abraham, the Horite Hebrew. Judaism cannot claim to believe as Abraham believed. Abraham rejoiced at to see the day of Jesus Messiah whose appearing fulfilled the Messianic hope of Abraham and his Horite Hebrew ancestors. Jews reject Jesus as the fulfillment of the Messianic hope. Jews and Muslims alike reject the idea of God Father and God Son. The Quran denies that God has a son, a key feature of the Messianic hope of the Horite Hebrew.

The oldest known Messianic text is not found in the Bible. However, the Bible alludes to the text in Genesis 3:15 where we are told that the divine Seed will trample the enemy, a Messianic reference. Psalm 110:1 alluded to the same: The Lord says to my Lord: “Sit at My right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.”

This expectation was expressed in the Pyramid Texts about 1000 years before the Psalm.
"Horus has shattered (tbb, crushed) the mouth of the serpent with the sole of his foot (tbw)" Utterance 388 (681)
Some will argue that this has nothing to do with the Seed of God who was born of Mary. Jesus himself claims otherwise. He identified Himself as the Seed when he told his disciples that he was going to Jerusalem to die.
"The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. I tell you the truth, unless a kernal of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds." (John 12:23)

Among the ancient Horite Hebrew the sun was the emblem of the Creator and it was believed to inseminate by overshadowing. When Mary asked the angel how she as a virgin would conceive (virginal conception), Gabriel told her:
 "The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God." (Luke 1:35)

The Horites of Edom 

The rulers of Edom were devotees of Ra, Horus and Hathor. Shrines to Hathor have been found in the region of Beersheba, the southern boundary of Abraham's territory. A temple dedicated to Hathor was discovered at the southwestern edge of Mt. Timnah by Professor Beno Rothenberg of Hebrew University. In his book Timna, Rothenberg concluded that the peoples living in the area were "partners not only in the work but in the worship of Hathor." (Timna, p. 183)

Hathor's animal totem was a cow. She is shown at the Dendura Temple holding her newborn son in a cattle stall. The stable was constructed by the Horite priest Har-si-Atef.

Horite belief in a Righteous Ruler who would be God incarnate on earth found fulfillment in Jesus Messiah, a descendant of the Horite Hebrew ruler-priests. He is the divine son of the Virgin Mary, daughter of the priest Joachim of the line of Nathan. Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of the promise made to Abraham's Horite ancestors in Eden (Gen. 3:15). This is why Frank Moore Cross cannot avoid the conclusion that the God of Israel is the God of the Horites of Edom.

Consider how Horus, the mythical archetype of Christ, describes himself in the Coffin texts (passage 148):
"I am Horus, the great Falcon upon the ramparts of the house of him of the hidden name. My flight has reached the horizon. I have passed by the gods of Nut. I have gone further than the gods of old. Even the most ancient bird could not equal my very first flight. I have removed my place beyond the powers of Set, the foe of my father Osiris. No other god could do what I have done. I have brought the ways of eternity to the twilight of the morning. I am unique in my flight. My wrath will be turned against the enemy of my father Osiris and I will put him beneath my feet in my name of 'Red Cloak'." 

Here we find the Messianic reference in Psalm 110:1 - "The Lord says to my Lord: 'Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.'"

Likewise, Psalm 2:7,8 declares: "I will surely tell of the decree of the Lord: He said to Me, ‘Thou art My Son, today I have begotten Thee. Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Thine inheritance, and the very ends of the earth as Thy possession."

The correspondence between the Horus Myth and the story of Jesus can be explained in two ways. Either Christians borrowed the Horus myth to invent a new religion, or Christianity emerges in an organic way from the belief system of Abraham and his Horite Hebrew ancestors.

It is evident that the Hebrew Scriptures reflect a Messianic hope that predates the Bible. The authority of the Scriptures rests on adherence to the Tradition of the Horim, the Horite Hebrew. It is important that Christians acknowledge the great antiquity of our faith.

When Adam and Eve left the garden they knew God existed because they spoke to him frequently. It would seem reasonable that this belief would continue in some form until the time of Jesus, even if the specifics are not familiar to us today. It is interesting to find Christian roots in ancient traditions.

Genesis tells us that Adam and Eve enjoyed communion with God "in the cool of the day." They had cool meetings with their Creator!

The Lord in 3 persons comes to Abraham at Mamre in the "heat of the day." This was a cool encounter for Abraham, but not so much for Sarah who was caught in a lie. This encounter happens while the Lord is on the way to Sodom. That was a really HOT encounter with God.
