Hours and Horus

By Chance Kelsey, chancellorfiles.com

 Chance: The origin of the word hour is very interesting it comes from the Egyptian god Horus, and Horus in Egyptian mythology is the son of the god Osirus. Horus is symbolic of the sun and the sun is considered to be the Horussavior of the world. This makes Horus the savior of the world in Egyptian mythology. Also, the savior of the world is called the christ. Horus is depicted as a god with a falcon head. Now we come to Ancient Egypt. More than 3,000 years before Christianity began, the early morning "Sun/ Saviour" was pictured in Egypt as the "New Born Babe". The infant saviour’s name was "HORUS". When the sunrise (daybreak) came it was said that the savior (horus) has risen.  And every morning when the savior (horus / sun) rose it was considered a new born babe. 

 In Egyptian mythology the early morning Sun or "New Born Babe", was pictured in two ways.
    A) The Dove – Bringer of Peace
    B) The Hawk – God of War (who punishes the enemies of God!).

 At daybreak. this wonderful, newborn child, God’s ‘Sun’, is … ‘Born Again’ Horus is Risen. Even today, when the Sun comes up, we see it on the "Horus-Risen", or "Horizon". His life was also divided into 12 parts or steps across Heaven each day: 12 HORUS = 12 HOURS. This is the origin of the modern " 12 Step Program". Horus is the (new-born) Sun, or the Bringer of the Light. In Latin, Light Bringer is Lucis, or Lucifer, or Luke.

So the name hour comes from Horus and the day is divided into 24 hours. In the early morning we can see the sun on the horizon or horus-risen. When the sun set (goes down and darkness comes) darkness comes and the devil and evil comes out at night and people are afraid of darkness. But in the morning the sun (savior /horus/ new born baby) rises and chases away the darkness (night and evil). When the sun rises the people are happy and no longer fear the night.  


Another familiar term associated with the ecclesiastical profession. However, what few realize is that this word originated in or refers to the Lunar and Stellar Cults. The word Min was the common name of the moon, in fact it is were we derive the word moon. And Ster, is really star. So when we refer to someone as a Minister, we are really saying Moon-Star. It is a title that derives from the lunar and stellar cults. This explains why there is a minute hand on a watch. The three hands of a watch relate to the three planet associated with time. The slow hand is the hour hand, meaning Horus, the sun. The minute hand is for Min, the moon and the swift ticking hand is for Mercury, the planet which rotates fastest of all, both round the sun and on its own orbit. This is why the figure of the god Mercury was depicted with wings on his shoes or feet.

    Hotep! Give thanks for this brother.

    As the Great Africans of the Nile Valley said, MAN KNOW THY SELF!


  2. Thanks for coming by Horum Aket and I enjoy studying knowledge and please come by again.

    Shem Hotep (I go in peace)

  3. Amos

    The Messiah was foretold before the Flood. And the hebrews also kept the sacrificial offerings for a purpose. The roots of civilization branch from this pagan Eygpt idea.

  4. Chance

    @ Amos,

    Yes a lot of the Hebrew jewish traditions come from the ancient Egptian religion that is true. Good point Amos.

    Thanks for coming by.

    I have recently discovered the story of Horus , this has spawned my research on him , truly fascinating. I was brought up in a baptist family….and I came to my senses in my teens. Not to bash Christianity , but this “new” knowledge for me has been very satisfying. Check out http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com.

    Thanks for the link it was a good movie, and interesting.

    Hebrew culture as a derivative of Egyptian culture, thus their blood dendrite link and other interesting connections/ommissions (lexiline.com)

    fun variations on Anagram…

    Shem Hotep Theme/e/Ethos
    ShemHot-Ep ShemHot- The Ohms Pe- Astral Kings

    Mer Ka Ba ‘the measure of time and/in space’

    Pesedjet (Great Nine Names)
    As number line and ‘fullness’.
    1-Atum, 2-Shu, 3-Tefnut, 4-Geb, 5-Nut, 6-Wesir, 7-Her-Wer, 8-Set, 9-Aset, O-Nebt-het.

    (Latv. infers ‘not born”not alive’, null space, recursive wave?).
    Still checking to see if my ordering of 6-7 and/or 8-9 is not inverted.

    Interesting what occurs when one challenges ‘everything’, including the calends.

  8. Diane

    the zeitgeist movie brought me to research on horus.. his story is really fascinating as jesus christ share lots of attributes with him..

  9. Chance

    Yes, that is true. Jesus and Horus incarnated
    the Christ Principle, and there were many other famous religious teachers from other ancient cultures who shared similarities with Jesus and Horus.

    Really, what are your sources or evidence to reach such a conclusion?
