In Response To: spookifying God and "worshiping nature" (discipleofthenile)
I think we may have found common ground here and I thank you for the information you have provided.
I saw this show on the History channel called Black Pharoahs that ruled Egypt. At first I was excited because it was a new show to shed light about the rulers of Egypt. I was flying "High" only to crash in a ball of anger. They the "Intellectuals" perpatuated the idea that Egypt as a cacausiode nation and not black. And that Cush was the only black rulers. I was pissed! Egypt is black! I yelled. Egypt and Cush were the longest ruling Kingdoms even surpassing Rome. I have made it a small mission to educate as many people I can about Black Egypt.
But continuing. I agree nature was the first church. I recall that in the Tanakh YAH instructs us to pay close attention to the heavens for signs omens and to determine our months years festivals and such things. If you recall the Beta Israel never had a calendar but they knew to the exact date when the next month would come and when to celebrate Pesach. Thats a testiment of us pre-exilic hebrews living close to nature. In one of our mystic books called the Haggada it explains that the sun moon and stars are actual living creature from whom we may converse with.
If you ever studied pre-exilic mysticism the four letters of the Unutterable Name represent Yud Hei Vav Hei and each letter represents different Energys descending from YHVH Him/Herself. Each letter has its own energy and meaning and also a specific meditation. Its has its own numerical value and all together a total numerical value in conjuction with the nature/material world. When you look at anything relating to numbers in the Tanakh be it days or counting of tribes; it all correlates to something connected to the Ein Sof. The Soul of every man was created by Ein Sof and He/She took us from Him/Herself and asked what would we do if He/She made us a Star the Soul said, "I will watch does below to marvel at my brightness." Ein Sof told the soul its purpose was to guide not seek mans praise for all praises is due to Ein Sof."
I guess this would count me into the ones that have "Knowledge" because as a Levite I am instructed in the Mysteries of YHVH and the Envocation of the Ark of the Covenant. For me the scripture is a code book. If you can unlock it there is great powers but if the heart is not ready and one continues there is great dangers thats why I am taking time off before I continue my mystic schooling.
I can agree 90% or even more do not sight that Divinity is two-sided male and feminine. Nature is an expression of the Most High, If you sight YAH made man in His image both man and woman in His image. If I may add in the Khemetic Religion I like the personifications of Thoth and Set.
Today "they" celebrate The Sun God's rebirth who enters Capricorn!!LOL fools they are!!
