Black divinity is an entity which can revive given the correct inspiration. Within our history is the story of the great Egyptian (Kemetic) divines, and the Kemetic concept of the divine was itself expressed in the word Neter.

Neter was the godhead personified in Annu by the concept of Tum. Tum was the only god, who then birthed the Neteru (gods and goddesses, or the divine nature).

The Hebrews learned from this system – a secret not too many Christians know today – and understood the divine nature as coming from one god first and then manifesting itself as the forces of nature, which they called the angels.

Hebraism was itself a philosophy started by Abraham, a black prophet of around the fifteenth century BCE. Abraham, to perfect his philosophy, ventured into Kemet where he would have learned of the circumcision practices of the Kemetic priests.

The rite of circumcision had been practiced in Kemet over a thousand years before Abraham was born, so if anything Abraham would have learned of circumcision from Kemet. Abraham would have also learned several Egyptian Yoga practices, such as, the sesh (yoga stretching) and khentu (tai chi) techniques, to stay young in old age, from Kemet also.

Sema Tawi, Egyptian Yoga proper, had various other facets too, such as: sesenti (meditation), heka (magic words), an-sti (tantric sex), usert (physical training) and montu-kha (martial training) that Abraham very likely also learned while in Kemet and incorporated into the original Hebrew tradition.

Black people thus devised both the Hebrew and the Kemetic traditions, therefore we should contain within ourselves the ability to reconnect with that divine essence modern society has denied to us.

But to accomplish a genuine black divinity will require some serious spiritual incite. First of all, we must learn to respect and honour the black woman as a Goddess (when she is worthy of the title). Then we must learn to appreciate that our fellow black men are Gods (when they are worthy of that title).

Godhood comes and meaninglessness is banished when love is demonstrated to the utmost. Holiness is the first step then the manifestation of love. With holiness comes refinement of mind, body and environment; these accomplished and holiness is inevitable.

It all begins with the internal. To capture the truth of who God is we must search inwardly. It means making many life changing and soul purging decisions. Decisions that lead to a refined lifestyle inside and outside which is the best means of attaining true holiness.

This is that Holy Spirit the Bible talks about. Not rolling around on the fall and foaming at the mouth. The Holy Spirit is a refined and pure lifestyle. It is getting in tune with the natural essence that gives life to all flesh and reinvigorates our soul.

This is one of the key areas where the Black Church has failed in its historical task. It has taught us to praise in the spirit of David but it has not taught us to be in tune with the laws of God as our ancestors were.

The Messiah came to bring us back to the laws of God. He said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

“For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” (Matthew 5: 17, 18).

The Messiah had the highest respect for the law. We as a people need to return to this respect for the law if we hope to progress as a people. This law is not as the white church has taught for years, as their law is based on a corruption of the African roots of Hebraism.

The interaction between Israel, Kemet and Kush is a historical actuality most Christians will have to come to terms with. It says concerning Moses, “And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds” (Acts 7: 22).

It also says concerning Moses, “And the Lord said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow. And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put his hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and behold, it was turned again as his other flesh” (Exodus 4: 6, 7).

If Moses skin was already white then it becoming “leprous as snow”, basically albino, would not have been a miracle at all. Therefore, Moses must have been a black man, who, “Pharaoh’s daughter took … up, and nourished … for her own son” (Acts 7: 21). Again, for Moses to pass as the son of Kemetic royalty he would have had to have been black.

The God of Moses would have been the Kemetic God Tum until he found Jahveh, who amounts to the same concept only the Hebrew version of him. The laws of Jahveh are also in tune with the Kemetic Declarations of Innocence (wrongly named the 42 Negative Confessions).

The Hebrews came out of Africa, being an African tribal people respecting an African tribal culture; and that culture was a development of what they learned, or what Moses learned, in Kemet.

The Bible itself is a black book written by black people for black people so that when you read in Revelations, “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

“And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered” (Revelations 12: 1, 2); one gets an image similar to those on the Kemetic tombs in the Valley of Kings and the Kemetic Book of Life (wrongly named the Book of the Dead).

The black man and black woman are essentially divine but for us to recapture the holiness and divinity we fell from we must start looking at the Bible in the right way.

There is more information on how deep this goes on my Sensual Theology page if you would like to go there now. If not tell me if you think this is too convenient or whether it makes good sense.

  3. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
