Isaiah 19:19 - In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the LORD at its border. (The Pyramids)

Asclepius 70.3 - 78
"Or are you ignorant, Asclepius, that Egypt is (the) image of heaven? Moreover, it is the dwelling place of heaven and all the forces that are in
heaven. If it is proper for us to speak the truth, our land is (the) temple of the world. And it is proper for you not to be ignorant that a time will
come in it (our land, when) Egyptians will seem to have served the divinity in vain, and all their activity in their religion will be despised. For
all divinity will leave Egypt, and will flee upward to heaven. And Egypt will be widowed; it will be abandoned by the gods. For foreigners will come
into Egypt, and they will rule it. Egypt! Moreover, Egyptians will be prohibited from worshipping God. Furthermore, they will come into the ultimate
punishment, especially whoever among them is found worshipping (and) honoring God.
Our world of this age (0-2012) has been witness to these events taking place. We see the prohibition of Egypt happening now as Coptic Christians are
being persecuted. This little known prophecy by Hermes is ancient and chilling to uncover. Relate what is written here to the Apocalypse of John in
"And in that day, the country that was more pious than all countries will become impious. No longer will it be full of temples, but it will be
full of tombs. Neither will it be full of gods, but (it will be full of) corpses. Egypt! Egypt will become like the fables. And your religious objects
will be [...] the marvelous things, and [...], and if your words are stones and are wonderful. And the barbarian will be better than you, Egyptian, in
his religion, whether (he is) a Scythian, or the Hindus, or some other of this sort.
Egypt is a living history of a dead nation. Egypt is a fable before our eyes. Only a hint of its former purpose and glory is present. As we view
Egypt form the eyes of the Biblical narrative, we see the thread of God's truth moving through the lives of Enoch, Joseph and Moses.
"And what is this that I say about the Egyptian? For they (the Egyptians) will not abandon Egypt. For (in) the time (when) the gods have
abandoned the land of Egypt, and have fled upward to heaven, then all Egyptians will die. And Egypt will be made a desert by the gods and the
Egyptians. And as for you, River, there will be a day when you will flow with blood more than water. And dead bodies will be (stacked) higher than the
dams. And he who is dead will not be mourned as much as he who is alive. Indeed, the latter will be known as an Egyptian on account of his language in
the second period (of time). - Asclepius, why are you weeping? - He will seem like (a) foreigner in regard to his customs. Divine Egypt will suffer
evils greater than these. Egypt - lover of God, and the dwelling place of the gods, school of religion - will become an example of
When Moses left Egypt with God's people, Egypt was widowed. This is language used in the Bible for the absence of godly people in a land. The Word
of revelation is gone. A day is coming when the Nile will flow with blood. This is prophesied in Isaiah 19. Why did Joseph and Moses need to come
to Egypt? Reading the Corpus Hermeticum reveals the reason. A good translation is found in a book called, The Way of Hermes.
"And in that day, the world will not be marveled at, [...] and immortality, nor will it be worshiped [...], since we say that it is not good
[...]. It has become neither a single thing nor a vision. But it is in danger of becoming a burden to all men. Therefore, it will be despised - the
beautiful world of God, the incomparable work, the energy that possesses goodness, the man-formed vision. Darkness will be preferred to light, and
death will be preferred to life. No one will gaze into heaven. And the pious man will be counted as insane, and the impious man will be honored as
wise. The man who is afraid will be considered as strong. And the good man will be punished like a criminal.
In our present world, darkness is preferred over light. We see this twisting today as good men are called insane and punished like criminals. This
darkness is present in all nations and increasing.
"And concerning the soul, and the things of the soul, and the things of immortality, along with the rest of what I have said to you, Tat,
Asclepius, and Ammon - not only will they be considered ridiculous, but they will also be thought of as vanity. But believe me (when I say) that
people of this kind will be endangered by the ultimate danger to their soul. And a new law will be established ... (2 lines missing) ... they will ...

atheism, wars, and plunderings, by teaching them things contrary to nature.
1 goes into great detail as to what the world thinks of Biblical wisdom.
18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;
the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”
The last part of the text speaks of wicked angels leading men into error. We see this in our society. There is no denying that 2000 years of history
has proven this true.
"In those days, the earth will not be stable, and men will not sail the sea, nor will they know the stars in heaven. Every sacred voice of the
word of God will be silenced, and the air will be diseased. Such is the senility of the world: atheism, dishonor, and the disregard of noble
Notice the quality of air and the voice of God being silenced. We live in a disinterested world.
"And when these things had happened, Asclepius, then the Lord, the Father and god from the only first god, the creator, when he looked upon the
things that happened, established his design, which is good, against the disorder. He took away error, and cut off evil. Sometimes, he submerged it in
a great flood; at other times, he burned it in a searing fire; and at still other times, he crushed it in wars and plagues, until he brought ... (4

From the ashes, man rises. We can only know error in this world if we experience it. When you consider the lament of Hermes to Asclepius, consider
what Hermes did not know. What do we know today about overcoming evil with love. Hermes was not privileged with the entire story. We, however, are
more than versed in what we need to be doing to heal the world. Love covers a multitude of sin. Become interested. Love God and love others. This
is the entire duty of mankind at this time of history. Seek God while He can still be found.
"The restoration of the nature of the pious ones who are good will take place in a period of time that never had a beginning. For the will of God
has no beginning, even as his nature, which is his will (has no beginning). For the nature of God is will. And his will is the good."
Now is the time for your salvation. Seek!
