This great nation has always been and maybe it will be forever, topic of discussion and debate for its mysteries, probably unsolved. Egypt is mentioned for the first time in the modern revelation just after the flood. Abraham 1:21-27
Abraham 1:21
21 Now this king of Egypt was a descendant from the loins of Ham, and was a partaker of the blood of the Canaanites by birth.

Abraham 1:22
22 From this descent sprang all the Egyptians, and thus the blood of the Canaanites was preserved in the land.

Abraham 1:23
23 The land of Egypt being first discovered by a woman, who was the daughter of Ham, and the daughter of Egyptus, which in the Chaldean signifies Egypt, which signifies that which is forbidden;

Abraham 1:24
24 When this woman discovered the land it was under water, who afterward settled her sons in it; and thus, from Ham, sprang that race which preserved the curse in the land.

Abraham 1:25
25 Now the first government of Egypt was established by Pharaoh, the eldest son of Egyptus, the daughter of Ham, and it was after the manner of the government of Ham, which was patriarchal.

Abraham 1:26
26 Pharaoh, being a righteous man, established his kingdom and judged his people wisely and justly all his days, seeking earnestly to imitate that order established by the fathers in the first generations, in the days of the first patriarchal reign, even in the reign of Adam, and also of Noah, his father, who blessed him with the blessings of the earth, and with the blessings of wisdom, but cursed him as pertaining to the Priesthood.

Abraham 1:27
27 Now, Pharaoh being of that lineage by which he could not have the right of Priesthood, notwithstanding the Pharaohs would fain claim it from Noah, through Ham, therefore my father was led away by their idolatry;
Here it is explained that the daughter of Ham, Egyptus, discovered this land.
It is interesting to note that the name "Egyptus" signifies that which is forbidden, because she was a descendant by the lineage of Cain and her posterity didn't have the blessing pertain to the priesthood's authority. We don't know why Ham married her, because surely this was against the rule of that time. To better understand this point please take a look at my article "Racism".
Anyway this woman should have been a great one and maybe even her mother, because it is mentioned more than her in the scriptures. This woman gave the birth to the Egyptian dynasty, that it lasted many centuries with a splendor of knowledge that even today astonish the world and it is even today full of mystery. The Egyptian dynasty, to my opinion, for knowledge, technology was unsurpassed from all the other kingdoms that after ruled the world. The roman empire lasted, probably more and it had a lot more dominion on the world but surely they was unaware of their technology and knowledge. I believe that what is mentioned in the book of Abraham that they were seeking earnestly to imitate that order established by the fathers in the first generations, even though they didn't have the right and the authority was a great influence for their technology and knowledge. I truly believe that father Abraham gave them a lot of knowledge when he sojourned there for a while. We have to consider these things.
Abraham 1:26
26 Pharaoh, being a righteous man, established his kingdom and judged his people wisely and justly all his days,
This is an important point, he didn't have the right for the priesthood but he was a very good man.
Abraham had
Abraham 1:31
31 But the records of the fathers, even the patriarchs, concerning the right of Priesthood, the Lord my God preserved in mine own hands; therefore a knowledge of the beginning of the creation, and also of the planets, and of the stars, as they were made known unto the fathers, have I kept even unto this day, and I shall endeavor to write some of these things upon this record, for the benefit of my posterity that shall come after me.

Abraham shared his knowledge with the Egyptians not just because they helped him during the famine but because he felt that Pharaoh was a good man. When Pharaoh was aware that she was his wife he was upset with him and gave her back to him, surely he knew the God of Abraham and respected Him. With Ramses and Moses was just another case, at that point the Egyptians had lost this knowledge.
Anyway this country was designated from the Lord to be a land for refuges.
Father Abraham was the first one to take advantage of this. It is not by chance that the greatest monument were built in that age.
Jacob had the same destiny. Joseph was the ultimate example for this, he was sold from his brothers and there he founded his greatness and there his family was spared from the famine.
the problem came up when
exodus 1:8
exodus 1:8
8 ¶ Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.

which implies that he didn't know even his God.
Even the savior was saved from death going in Egypt to avoid the edict of Herod.
I am sure that all of this cases didn't happen by chance, they could have gone in Syria or somewhere else instead always in Egypt. I really don't know why, but Egypt was and it is a great country that it played a great rule with divine purposes in the eternal plan of God.

I have to thank gbritt for this additional sources.


1) Aha/Menes was the first Pharaoh[1] to unite the Egyptian tribes. And he and his father both, were nuts about everything Adamic.[2] So much so, that most of our versions of the true religion come down to us in the Egyptian form.[3] Be glad we use the Egyptian Temple ceremony, in the Jewish one you have to sing and dance in the Instruction Circle.[4]

Into the this comes Imhotep, who is not of the lineage of Cain, and teaches the true religion, priesthood, and establishes the pyramids and the great Melchizedek temple at Heliopolis. The temple that the Order of Shem taught from. From the Book of Job and the Testament of Job, there is a strong suggestion that Job is Imhotep.[5]

Finally, the old kingdom collapses, and is renewed as the middle kingdom under a succession of foreign invaders that assume the Pharonic throne. One of these invading groups were the Hyksos. Abraham's blood relatives from Mesopotamia. They were white and heathenistic.[6]

These are the same people that exported the sect of Set back to UR, and whose High Priest of Pharaoh tries to sacrifice Abraham.[7]

During Abraham's exile to Egypt, because of his impatience with the Lord, he teaches both in the temple and to the Hyksos Pharaoh.[8] Depicted in feminine form in Facsimile #3. Note: In the Egyptian Temple lexicon, the spirit body is referred to as the Adam[9], and the physical body is referred to as the Eve[10], out of rememberence for our first parents.

Later, Joseph marries the daughter of the Temple President at Heliopolis, a Hyksos, not a Canaanite.[11]

Next, the Canaanite Pharaoh Ahmes, raises an army and re-invades Egypt from Nubia, and they kick the hated invaders out. Except for those that were too poor, or weak to escape. These eventually become The Slaves of the Pharaoh that knew not Joseph. Ramses II.[8]

Moses takes not only the descendants of Jacob out into the desert, but the rest of the Hyksos too, The Others.

Moses and the Israelites meet the Amalekite army, which they drive off, but the Amalekites find Egypt easy pickings without an army, which is presently feeding the fishies in the Sea of Reeds. So Amalek becomes the next Pharaoh, and the Blacks are again thrown down.

Important point, not ALL Israelites were poor, and therefore slaves in Egypt. Also, the fall of the Hyksos drove Jews into Greece(Athens), Spain and Briton(Celts).[13]

Later, under the New Kingdom and Alexander the Great, the Samaritans rebuilt the Temple at Gerrizzim that Solomon destroyed as competition to his Jerusalem Temple. Even Later, the Egyptian Jews were given permission by Ptolemy to rebuild the temple at ON/Heliopolis.[15]

When the baby Jesus fled to Egypt, Egypt was 20% Jewish, and the Egyptian Jews had destain for the Davidic form of Judaism, and kept the laws Abraham, not Moses. Thus our Facsimiles and the Book of Abraham.[14]

During the time of Christ, it appears that the Egyptian Jews were sending missionaries to the Jerusalem Jews, causing no small stir. Consider the case where the Roman officer mistakes Paul for an Egyptian, when he is arrested.

Finally, after the civil war in Jerusalem kills about 1 million Jews, and the Roman's kill another 200,000 Jewish ‘Gaddianton Robbers’ to restore order. A 20,000 strong Christian monastery at Naq Hammadi, Egypt is all that's left of the church in the area. They bury their temple library around the time of the Bar Kokhba revolt, and these are the Christian Dead Sea Scrolls, not the Gnostics.

From history, it appears that Egypt, not Israel has been the craddle of the church.
