Amen Was An Occult Egyptian God

Among the gods who were known to the Egyptians in very early times were Amen and his consort Ament, and their names are found in the Pyramid Texts, e.g., Unas, line 558, where they are mentioned immediately after the pair of gods Nau and Nen, and in connection with the twin Lion-godsShu and Tefnut, who are described as the two gods who made their own bodies, and with the goddess Temt, the female counterpart of Tem.
It is evident that even in the remote period of the 5th Dynasty Amen and Ament were numbered among the primeval gods, if not as gods in chief certainly as subsidiary forms of some of them, and from the fact that they are mentioned immediately after the deities of primeval matter, Nau and Nen, who we may consider to be the equivalents of the watery abyss from which all things sprang, and immediately before Temt and Shu and Tefnut, it would seem that the writers or editors of the Pyramid Texts assigned great antiquity to their existence. Of the attributes ascribed to Amen in the Ancient Empire nothing is known, but, if we accept the meaning “hidden” which is usually given to his name, we must conclude that he was the personification of the hidden and unknown creative power which was associated with the primeval abyss, gods in the creation of the world, and all that is in it.
The word or root amen, certainly means “what is hidden,” “what is not seen,” “what cannot be seen,” and the like, and this fact is proved by scores of examples which may be collected from texts of all periods. In hymns to Amen we often read that he is “hidden to his children, “and “hidden to gods and men,” and it has been stated that these expressions only refer to the “hiding,” i.e., “setting” of the sun each evening, and that they are only to be understood in a physical sense, and to mean nothing more than the disappearance of the god Amen from the sight of men at the close of day. Now, not only is the god himself said to be “hidden,” but his name also is “hidden,” and his form, or similitude, is said to be “unknown;” these statements show that “hidden,” when applied to Amen, the great god, has reference to something more than the “sun which has disappeared below the horizon,” and that it indicates the god who cannot be seen with the mortal eyes, and who is invisible, as well as inscrutable, to gods as well as men.

Amen was an Egyptian god

Amon, or Amen

Amon, or Amen ( the mysterious ), an Egyptian divinity, whose name occurs in that of No-amon. ( Nahum 3:8

but it’s also a Hebrew word meaning:

Amen Dependable; faithful; certain. And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the AMEN

Amen, [N] [B] [E] literally “true” and used as a substantive, “that which is true,” “truth,” ( Isaiah 65:16 )

Amen [N] [B] [S] This Hebrew word means firm, and hence also faithful ( Revelation 3:14 ). In Isaiah 65:16

The Israelits were enslaved in Egypt for 400 years – I don’t think they would prey to an Egyptain god, if that’s what the post is suggesting.

I’m going to do some more investigating about this…

    Religion is just Sun worship when “man” hadn’t a clue about the natural Universe.

    Early “religious-man” man must have had strong genes because it’s been passed down to millions of people who also haven’t a clue and believe in religion and it’s pathetic fairy-tales.

    Are you talking about how far back ”man” descends from in the context of Egypt?

    i.e. Sun Worship: the Egyptian god ‘RA’.

    Speaking of Egyptian God/Goddesses:
    Is(is)-Ra-El [Israel] comes to mind.

    I’m just interested in what the word Amen signifies. Any guidance gratefully received.
