Where did baptism come from? Why are people so ready to be immersed in water without asking questions? Why a river? Why not a lake or ocean? Was it just taking a bath to purify oneself? Christians believe that baptism is used to purify the person from sin or wash away their sins, but Jesus, who was supposedly without sin, insisted on John the Baptist baptizing him. The Mayans and Native Americans baptized with a ritual very similar to what the conquistadors were used to seeing. The patriarch religions stole everything. Baptism is just one more block I will remove from the wall of lies.
I will take this back to Egypt because that is where everything in today’s world come from, but the original reason for baptism in Egypt was the reason it was done all over the globe. In Egypt the Pharaoh was the living manifestation of god on earth. At sunrise each day he was sprinkled with water. This act was a symbolic unification of the Pharaoh with the sun-god Ra, who was believed to be reborn at dawn via the waters of Nun after his journey through the night. The Temple of Karnak has a depiction of Rameses II having water poured over him by the gods Thoth and Horus. This baptism was meant to prepare the Pharaoh to receive the god within. Thus through baptism the Pharaoh was reborn or made god like. This sprinkling of water was done in Lower Egypt to infants because it was believed the waters of the Nile would purify them of blemishes they acquired in the womb.
The initiation into the Isis cult goes much deeper. The baptism preceding the initiation was more than a purification ritual. The baptizing for the Goddess Isis had to do with being reborn from the amniotic fluid. This is why it was done around the world by matriarchal societies. Upper Egypt was matriarchal. It was to symbolize humans being reborn via the waters of the amniotic fluid. Your soul enters this world in the womb of the goddess. When you are pulled out of the water and take your first breath, it symbolizes you being born and taking your first breath. Jesus was of Egyptian descent and so was John the Baptist. The true religion of Ancient Egypt was the cosmos and nature herself. As a matter of fact, Jesus family was a matriarch. That is the joke of the bible. The scribe used a matriarch to create a patriarch and a patriarchal book. Make no mistake, it is very well-known what has been done.
Baptism was so important to Christians that they baptized new members in local rivers and streams. So what is so important of rivers and how did the water become masculine for patriarch religions. If you remember the story of our old buddy Osiris, you know that when he was cut into pieces Isis found all his body parts but one. The one piece being his penis. To the Egyptians the penis was lost forever in the Nile river. So the reproductive power of Osiris was submerged in the Nile. This is why patriarch religions did this. As populations grew and rivers became polluted the church had to do something. They didn’t want Osiris’ penis kill off all their congregation. Where would the money come from then? So they moved them indoors.
Churches constructed baptismal fonts. Fonts is from the Latin word ‘fons’ or ‘fontis’ meaning fountain. People are told these fonts symbolize natural springs or fountains. Pagans react by saying that Christianity stole their ideas. Yes they did, but not in the way most pagans think. Fountains have always represented the female bloodline. Even in the Song of Solomon he refers to the Queen of Sheba as “a fountain of gardens, a well of living waters”. The female line you are being baptized into is Mary Magdalene’s. I have shown in previous writings that the fountain of youth had to do with the aging blood lines of this world. The blood lines are running stale. The fountain of youth legends are all about looking for a young princess from a new bloodline, so the royalty of this world can mix with her.
You can believe what you want to believe, but the truth is that baptism is all about the feminine and the goddess. All the ancient civilizations knew this. Today it is hidden. If women actually knew their power, the game would come crashing down. Isis was considered the most powerful deity ever. More powerful than any god or goddess ever made up. There is a reason for that. The only thing patriarch religions will wash away from you is your freedom. Most all deities of truth and wisdom are goddesses. The eastern teachings have some gods, but I argue that the eastern teachings see their gods as androgynous.
In the Mayan tradition the word for baptism was ‘sihil’ and it simply meant “to be born”. The ceremonies were about the children reclaiming the magic and beauty they carry within. It was about self-love and awakening the ancient wisdom found in every person. The baptism was performed in a cave or ‘cenote’. This was symbolizing the Goddesses womb. With the Mayan holy mother leading the baptism. Cocoa which was considered ‘god food’ was used to anoint the girls and boys and they drank it. The festival afterwards consisted of eating and drinking and was called ‘em-ku’ which meant “the descent of the god”.
Just like everything else in this world, what you think you know about baptism is completely backwards. Baptism before patriarchy was not about making people submit to someone else’s will. It was about discovering the truth of yourself. This is the real reason the biblical Jesus wants John the Baptist to baptize him. They were both Egyptian royalty and knew the secrets.
