Was Akhenaten the Heretic Pharaoh or the First Messiah?


Not only was Akhenaten one of the most controversial rulers of Ancient Egypt, he was one of the greatest and most important religious innovators in the history of civilization.


Akhenaten

After the Great Pyramids of Egypt and the mysteries behind their construction and purpose, Akhenaten and his history are surely the next biggest controversy of ancient Egypt.

Known before the fifth year of his reign as Amenhotep IV, Akhenaten is one of the most controversial Pharaohs to ever rule over Ancient Egypt. He was a Pharaoh of the eighteenth dynasty of Ancient Egypt and ruled the land of the Pharaohs for 17 years and he reigned the first 12 years in conjunction with his father, Amenhotep III. According to many scholars, Akhenaten is one of the worlds’ greatest and most important religious innovators and is noted for abandoning traditional Ancient Egyptian Polytheism and introducing a religion which would become centered on the Aten. However, it was not a new idea that was introduced by Akhenaten since the Aten appears in several ancient texts from the 12th dynasty. Aten is the disk of the sun and is considered a physical manifestation of Ra.

 

Many consider him as the first monotheist in all of history, a precursor to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Muhammad as prophets who worshiped one god.

Akhenaten claimed, “There is only one god, my father. I can approach him by day, by night.”

But who was this enigmatic ruler? Akhenaten was the Pharaoh responsible for taking ancient Egypt towards an entirely different religious lifestyle, trying to reconstruct religion departing from traditional ancient Egyptian polytheism, even though in the end after his reign, tradition was restored and his ‘revolutionary’ ideas were discredited and he was nearly erased from history. In archival records, Akhenaten is referred to as ‘the enemy’ or ‘that criminal’.

Among the numerous changes, Akhenaten made during his reign, is the construction of a new capital city which he called Amarna and he dedicated it to the sun. Akhenaten spent the next ten years there and in that time he instituted changes in art and culture and one of the most notable changes were how he would be publicly depicted.

Upon taking the ‘throne’ Akhenaten started off similar to other Pharaohs but broke off tradition within a few years into his reign, changing the worship of numerous immemorial gods, defying the powerful Amun priesthood. He instituted the monotheistic worship of the Aten, which he considered being the source of life.

Many scholars share the idea that Akhenaten is without a doubt a pioneer of a monotheistic religion that later became Judaism, and among the first scholars to propose such an idea was the great Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis.

According to Freud, Moses was an atheist priest who was forced out of Egypt with his followers after Akhenaten’s reign ended. After Akhenaten, the Aten cult ended abruptly, but Akhenaten’s ideas are believed to have lived on after him.

„Even though the Bible in Exodus, 2:10 tells us that Moses’ royal mother, who adopted him, called him Moshe because, she said, “I drew him out of the water”, Freud demonstrated that Moshe had a different meaning. In fact, the Hebrew word m sh a, as a verb, can mean either ‘to draw’ or ‘one who draws out’. The name Moshui, is the one that means ‘one who has been drawn out’. It was then Freud’s conclusion that the name of the Jewish leader was not of Hebrew origin, but comes from the Egyptian word, mos, meaning a rightful person.“ – Excerpt from Historical Deception: The Untold Story of Ancient Egypt by Moustafa Gadalla.

Interestingly, there are numerous similarities between Akhenaten and Moses:

According to historical records, Akhenaten chose the Heliopolitan solar form of the Egyptian temple and set it as the place where the Aten was to be worshiped. Interestingly, Moses was one of the first to introduce a temple into Israelite worship, when he created the tabernacle in Sinai.

In addition to the above, Akhenaten adopted the practice of a holy boat, usually kept in the temple, and the ark was used to carry the diety during processions. Moses, on the other hand, was also the one who introduced the ark where the Pentateuch scrolls were kept (Exodus, 25:10). Interestingly, rituals and worship of the newly-established Israelite priesthood were strikingly similar to those introduced by Akhenaten.

Also, there are no records of Israelite priesthood existing prior to the time of Moses.

Donald B. Redford has noted that some have viewed Akhenaten as a harbinger of Jesus.

Redford concluded:


Before much of the archeological evidence from Thebes and from Tell el-Amarna became available, wishful thinking sometimes turned Akhenaten into a humane teacher of the true God, a mentor of Moses, a Christlike figure, a philosopher before his time. But these imaginary creatures are now fading away one by one as the historical reality gradually emerges. There is little or no evidence to support the notion that Akhenaten was a progenitor of the full-blown monotheism that we find in the Bible. The monotheism of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament had its own separate development—one that began more than half a millennium after the pharaoh’s death


Tutankhaten replaced Akhenaten at the age of eight with Akhenaten’s old vizier, Ay, as regent. In the third year of his reign, Tutankhaten changed his name to Tutankhamun due to the pressure of the priests that surrounded him.

Tutankhamun was forced to take drastic measures corrupting the written record of ancient Egyptian succession and history, leading towards the complete deletion of the Amarna Revolution and Atenism.

This, in turn, led towards the destruction and disassembly of numerous temples built by Akhenaten including the temple located in Thebes. The religious instability created by Akhenaten eventually lead towards the complete removal of any inscription related fo the Aten. Ultimately, Akhenaten, Smenkhkare, Tutankhamun, and Ay were removed from the official lists of Pharaohs.

Freud firmly believed that Akhenaten was one of the greatest promoters of monotheism something that only Moses was able to achieve later in history. In his Book Moses and Monotheism, Freud proposes that Moses wasn’t Hebrew as many scholars believe but was actually born into Ancient Egyptian nobility, and was a follower of Akhenaten. Freud contradicts the biblical story of Moses.

Scholars stress that Akhenaten appeared in history nearly two centuries prior to the first archeological and historical evidence of the existence of Judaism and Israelite culture.

However, even though Akhenaten did not achieve wat he intended during his reign, he is considered as a pioneer in religion and a monotheistic ruler, first of its kind on Earth.

  1. This is an interesting concept, and I have been shown that there is in fact validity to this idea.

    The fact of the matter is that Moses was an avataric embodiment of Akhenaten, which would explain the similarities in their individual dogmas.

    It was not Moses that introduced the ark as a place to keep the Pentateuch, it was Abraham. While the Pentateuch is valid, in and of itself, it is imperative to understand that the bible is made invalid by the fact that the council of Nicea neglected to include the necessary genealogy and related mythology, despite that fact that the council was shown to include these ancient Babylonian and Sumerian texts, by the white dove, that they saw as their divine “sign”.

    Understanding that the priests at Nicea sought to create a “for profit” enterprise when they framed the ancient texts that would become the bible, leaves the entire primary tenet of the christian dogma skewed towards that end, including the the entirety of the new testament, which is the story of the life of Jesus, or supposed to be.

    While there was an individual by the name of Jesus that was a charismatic individual, he was not divine. Jesus actually denied that he was the “son of God”, and while he did have a following that documented his thoughts, the priests at Nicea who sought to create an industry around his life, actually amalgamated Jesus story with that of the Krishna, who did in fact raise an individual from the dead, and walk on water, long before the framers of the bible met at Nicea.

    Back to the omitted genealogical and mythological texts, the council did not understand the implication of these texts and did not see the need to include them, subsequently they have the rendered the entire book backwards, making the “creature of light” in the role of the “creature of dark”.

    This fact is not evident, nor is it relevant until the creature of dark makes his entrance in the book of Revelation. But, by considering the “mystery” of the book of Revelation, which are the seven stars and seven “candlestands”, that the framers of the bible did not understand for the fact that in the more than 50,000 years since the ancient texts were written, there had been much lost to time, including the fact that the seven “stars” and “candlestands” were actually talismans and sigils, respectively. Which are certainly not the tools of the Architect of the Universe, but the tools of a sorcerer.

    The Creator does not need, nor does He use such enhancements in His style of the Highest Science. He also does not have need for a council of twenty four “elders” as is also what revelations has him utilizing.

    There is further evidence to be found of the reversal, in the seven churches of the east, which at the time the ancient texts were written, were the seven armies of Rudra, in the battle of the ten kings.

    Then there is the fact that the Architect of the Universe most certainly does not have an illegitimate child, as is told in Rev. Chapter 12.

    These facts make the bible completely invalid, and should not be used as consideration in the determination of anything.

    1. Well, Dick, you need to understand who I am, first.

      First, I am the true and real biblical Prophet for the end of the Age of Man, which not only allows me access to “all seeing all knowing”, plus like my three contemporaries before me, I have the burden that you might understand as, I “walk with God”.

      He’s here with me now, and sends his regards, by the way.

      On top of that, I am also the Prophet for the Battle of the Armageddon.

      Also, I claim the title of “Usher of Destruction”.

      I am also a dynastic avatar. I am the last blue blooded avatar of the House of Anjou, and a direct descendant of the Count of Anjou. I am the end of a 5000 year long string of first born sons, and this pedigree offers me the title of “Son of Seth” which each of my three contemporaries, Abraham, Moses, and Noah, also were. If you don’t recognize “Son of Seth”, you may understand it as “Ben Elohim” or the more common, “Nephilim”. I am the first to have “realization of self” in over 26,000 years, since Grandsire Bhishma Patimah in the last battle of good and evil, the Mahabharata.

      Moving on to the bible, and you need to understand that the whole thing is bass backwards, subsequently, I am the “seven headed beast that rises from the sea” and the Old Man(the God that you say your prayers to) is the “dragon”.

      And the last one that I will list, because there are more titles, is that I am the Knight Templar that will free the slaves of the church. I have already pushed over the first domino that whence the last one falls, it will crush the christian religion, and release the grasp that it has on the poor lambies that have bought into the lies that it has perpetrated since Nicea, when it sought to push its way into all of our realities as middleman of our spirituality. You may not understand that there is absolutely no “religion” involved in ascending.

      The reason everything is so screwed up is that there hasn’t been anyone to set the record straight in well over 50,000 years, since old Moses was here leaving havoc in his wake. Actually Noah was supposed to, but he refused his position because he was pissed off about having to build a boat in the desert, and everyone laughed at him. As “Prophet” it was his gig to spread the word about the storm that was impending. He refused.

      So, anyway, I hope you will accept my credentials and pedigree as reference for some of it.

      The rest you can fact check for yourself, like Rev. 12:5, where the council of Nicea put the Old Man in the Role of the “creature of Dark” wrongly, giving him the “disco trophy”.

      I will tell you, the He is a shy and introverted bachelor. He does not have an illigetimate child, Dick.

      “her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne” is the end of verse 5 of the KJV, and these words most certainly gift Him a child, wrongly.

      The “elders” are in chapter 5, verse 14 as well as other places.

      Other evidences that this is not the Old Man, are in chapter 3, where he forces Jezebel to fellate him(verse 14-15)as well as force anyone to purchase any gold or anything else, as they have Him doing in verse 18.

      And, let me tell you, young man, he would not ever threaten to kill Jezebels or anyone’s children, as He does in Rev. chapter 2, verse 23 which states “And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.”

      Not now, or ever, Dick. Not the Old Mans style of His job. The destroying falls on another.

      But the grandest tell, is the “mystery” of the book of revelations. He does not need talismans, sigils, charms, nor rabbits feet, to work His brand of the Highest Science.

      They council did not understand these tools of a sorcerer, and that’s why they ran a bluff on everyone, making it a “mystery”, this free they spend the entire first chapter trying to explain these “mystery” items away.

      Now, back to crushing the church.

      In chapter 17 of Revelation, it clearly lays out the there is judgement, not just at the end of time, but every time you move through the bright light at the end of the tunnel. They just omitted that.

      There are two books that are consulted in chapter 17. The book of life is one, but the first book that is opened that each one of the dead has.

      That is their Akashic record. Their karmic account book. And each one of the is judged by their “works”. That, good sir, is karma.

      There is absolutely zero in their about “forgiveness”, which was the churches big lie. There is no forgiveness, not now, or ever. You cannot ascend if your karmic account is not in good standing.

      Now, another falsehood is the fact that Revelation was taken from what would become the old testament. The rest of the new testament is virtually all fictional. There was an individual that was charismatic by the name of Jesus, but he actually denied being the “son of God”.

      The individual that walked on water and raised an individual from death, was the Krishna, long before the council at Nicea.

      But, there are proofs to the fact that the new testament is a “deception”, but that another posting.

      Oh, BTW, you can check out the white dove story for yourself.

      If I can lend you any more knowledge to find understanding, I’m here for you Dick.

      Happy easter.

      1. I quite enjoyed this and followed it quite well. Many things that I have read before. I wouldn’t mind hearing more of what you have to say.

    2. I believe I’m part of the Dragon or something.. I do not know which part. But I do know I somehow mysteriously stumbled upon your profile on a website I never visit. And I feel some connection. My purpose in life is to make this world beautiful again and enlightened on a MASS scale. Check out my website link on my profile. Tell me what you see.
