Mount Zion?


The Bible reveals spiritual truths about ELOHIM, love, salvation, faith, morality and ethics that surpass the realms of science, and throughout Scripture The Lord instructs people to examine ancient history in order to build a foundation from written records. 

  • Isaiah 46:8-9 "Remember this and be brave; take it to heart, you transgressors! Remember what happened long ago..."

  • Job 8:8 "Please inquire of past generations and consider the discoveries of their fathers."

The more you will seek to deepen your knowledge and understanding, the more you will realize that there are two realities: the Truth which is no longer known to mankind, and the falsehoods we have long been taught, and that have become our altered version of Reality and Truth, and upon which the whole world relies on. Although our human identity remains elusive, our conscience speaks to us. Let the Truth be told in accordance with the Word of God and historical evidence.

We cannot speak of Mount Zion without referencing Egypt, for Mount Zion is closely linked to the posterity of Ham - Psalm 87:4 Egypt, Babylonia, Philistia, Phoenicia, and Ethiopia are some of those nations that know you, and their people all say, "I was born in Zion."

  • The Egyptians (Mitzaim),

  • Babylon (Nimrod),

  • the Philistines (Canaan),

  • Tyre (Phut)

  • The Ethiopians (Cush)

To better understand the following content, it would first be useful to briefly discuss the etymology of words. The Arabic name for Egypt is "Misr", derived from the Hebrew "Mizraim" (son of Khem / Cham).The word kmt (in its present written form "Kemet, Kemit, Khemit, Kamit or Khamit") is the ancient name of Egypt, and means "black", "land of the blacks" or "black land". Khem ("Ham", son of Noah) is the Egyptian word for "black".

Note that the word "Alchemy" has its origins in Kemet. Kimia (Greek χυμεία) is derived from Khem or Cham and means "to melt or mold a metal". The Hebrew AL or EL means "God" or "The Most High". The syntax is Al-Kimia, meaning "to merge with The Most High". In fact, Kemet transmitted its first texts about medicine to the world in the form of medical papyri, moreover, "Western science" and medicine, originated in Kemet.   


Around 332 BC, when the Greeks reached northeast Africa with Alexander the Great, they adopted the name Aegyptus for all of Lower and Upper Egypt. While the sub-Saharan region south of Upper Egypt was called Aethiopia, Sub Aegypto or Aegypto.


Why Aegyptus and Aegypto and what are we supposed to understand?  

  • In Greek mythology, Aegyptus, whose name means " supine goat ", was a legendary king of ancient Egypt. As the twin brother of Danaus, he was the son of Belus and Anchinoe, the naiad daughter of Nilus.

  • While the word Aegypto, whose Greek pronunciation is that of the Egyptian name "Hwt-Ka-Ptah", means "Temple of the spirit of Ptah". Ptah was an ancient Egyptian deity associated with Memphis, symbolizing God the creator and ruler of craftsmen and architects. 

Here are ancient maps from the 15th-16th century, on which the name "Aegypto", designates the Congo Basin. Note that this region was also known to be part of ancient Ethiopia. 



What should we understand?

Any logical explanation or interpretation indicates that Aegypto is a subliminal name pertaining to the Congo Basin. To understand why, please read the following information carefully.

Capharnaum (Kefar Naḥum) was an ancient city on the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee in present-day Israel. The Bible teaches that the Lord Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem and grew up in Nazareth. Much of His adult ministry took place in the town of Capernaum, where He regularly taught in synagogues. It was the Lord's secondary residence and He made it His home. The Bible calls it "His own city or temple of Jesus Christ".


Now in the center of the ruins of an ancient synagogue in Capharnaum (Kefar Naḥum), there is an engraving that looks just like the map of the Democratic Republic of Congo. (See below)

If Aegypto means "Temple of the Spirit of God", and Capernaum was the "Temple of Jesus Christ", then one can assume that the word Aegypto on these ancient maps (see video below), as well as the engraving on the floor of Capernaum, are intended to subliminally communicate to the entire world that the Congo Basin, also known as the center, is a holy land; it's the Temple of the Lord.


Why is the center of the Earth so important?

According to the Book of Jubilees, Adam was created in the land of Elda, at the center of the Earth. Elda comes from the Hebrew Eldaah (אלדעה), meaning "God has called" or "knowledge of God". It is where Adam first stood before entering the Garden of Eden. His body was buried on the very spot of his creation. It was also on this exact spot that YESHUA was crucified. 

Note that whereas Christian tradition situates Adam's tomb in modern day Jerusalem beneath the place where Jesus was "supposedly" crucified, Jewish tradition generally situates Adam's grave in the cave of Macpelah where Abraham and his sons are buried.

Interestingly, Revelations 11:8 seems to indicate that Jesus Christ was crucified in Egypt.

  • Revelations 11:8 "And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified." - La Bible de King James 1611

Some scholars argue that the verse should be understood in a spiritual, rather than literal, context, as it is more likely referring to Rome, which spiritually can be called "Sodom" for its abominations, and "Egypt" for its tyrannical cruelty and persecution of Jews.


Curiously, modern Bible translations have replaced "our Lord" with "their Lord".

  • Revelations 11:8 "Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city—figuratively called Sodom and Egypt—where their Lord was also crucified." Berean Standard Bible

Clearly, modern interpreters don't believe that "spiritual Sodom and Egypt" can refer to Rome or present-day Jerusalem, otherwise they would never have replaced "our Lord". For, in a much deeper sense, this change suggests the existence of two parallel realities" or two Lords:

  • Our Lord who was crucified in modern Jerusalem and

  • Their Lord who was crucified in ancient Egypt. 

Here's an ancient map from 1632 by Pascoal Roiz (Portuguese cartographer and portolan producer), written on parchment and preserved in the Musée de Dinan. On the back of the manuscript is written: "donated by Mr. and Mrs. Lecourt de La Villethassetz, September 4, 1844. G. Buisson". Frédéric Lecourt de La Villethassetz (1798-1871) was a jurist and collector of old volumes, titles and other archaic documents. Some of these he donated to the museum and library. Notice how Roiz's map shows the cross of Jesus Christ in the center of Africa, with the inscription Egipto just above the cross. It also shows two Jerusalems: one in the Middle East and one in the Congo.

In the video below you will find portulan charts from the 14th to 16th centuries, inscribed on parchment, with wind roses and crossed rhumb lines. These wind roses were the basic elements used for navigation. How these charts were produced remains a state secret. However, they all feature a very large compass rose at the center of Africa precisely in the region known as Aegypto indicating that this is not only the center of the Earth, but also the throne of a high priest.


Some people argue that with new technologies, it has been proven that the center of the earth lies in the Middle East. Also, in 1877, author and theologian Dr. Joseph Seiss stated that the pyramid of Cheops (Giza) is located at the exact intersection of the longest line of Latitude and the longest line of Longitude; in other words, at the exact center of the entire earth's mass.  Calculating its apothem (the distance joining the top of the pyramid to the middle of one of the sides of the base) by the half-base of the pyramid is equal to the golden number "π" = Pi = 22/7 = 3.14 (22 represents the 22 acts of Creation and 7 represents the time ELOHIM took to create the world, then rested).

The problem with these statements is this: All modern maps follow the Mercator projection created in 1569 by Flemish cartographer Gerardus Mercator. His map excessively amplifies the areas at the poles, in order to create straight lines of constant orientation or geographical direction, so that the countries to the north appear larger than they really are, compared to the countries near the equator.

Note that modern critics are accusing the mercator projection of being biased, distorting our perception of the world and tied to racial supremacy. Thus, defining the center of the Earth on a Mercator projection map will produce inaccurate results. While there's an obvious mystery hidden from the public concerning the Pyramid of Kheops, neither the Great Pyramid nor the Middle East can possibly be the center of the Earth.


Here are some verses about the Temple of the Lord that might deepen your understanding of what you've just read:

► The Bible declares that Mount Zion is the place where the God of Israel has established his Temple, it's his dwelling place. Mount Zion is also the seat of the Lord's action in the history of mankind, for it is in this part of the world that He will establish His king, David.

  • Psalm 76:2 "In Salem also is His tabernacle, And His dwelling place in Zion."

  • Isaiah 8:18 "We are for signs and wonders in Israel From the LORD of hosts, Who dwells in Mount Zion."

  • Psalm 74:2 "Remember Your congregation, which You have purchased of old, The tribe of Your inheritance, which You have redeemed— This Mount Zion where You have dwelt."

  • Psalm 2:6 "I have installed My King on Zion, upon My holy mountain"

► Mount Zion represents the tribe of Judah.

  • Psalm 78:68 "But He chose the tribe of Judah, Mount Zion, which He loved."


► A particularity of the girls of Zion is that they are mostly prone to alopecia. Of all the races in the world, alopecia is more common among women of African descent.

  • Isaiah 3:16-17 "The LORD also says: “Because the daughters of Zion are haughty—walking with heads held high and wanton eyes, prancing and skipping as they go, jingling the bracelets on their ankles—Therefore the Lord will afflict the scalp of the daughters of Zion with scabs, And the LORD will make their foreheads bare."

*Anklets date back to ancient Egypt and were first worn by Egyptian women. They were made from materials such as brass, gold, silver, iron, glass or ivory. Women wore it as an ornament and a sign of wealth - reserved for sophisticated people wishing to show off their husband's great fortune.


► In a symbolic sense, Sion is in the image of a Mountain to express stability, steadfastness, reliability, inalterability, strength and confidence. But in a physical sense, Zion is described as having many high peaks similar to mount Bashan. In other words, Mount Zion is a formation of several high mountain ranges, covered with forests and bushes but also with snow.

  • Jeremiah 26:18 "Thus says the LORD of hosts; Zion shall be plowed like a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps of ruins, and the mountain of the house as the high places of a forest."

  • Micah 3:12 "Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed like a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps of ruins, and the mountain of the house like the high places of the forest."

  • Psalm 68:15-16 "When the Almighty scattered the kings there, It was snowing in Zalmon, The mountain of God is as the mountain of Bashan; a mountain of many peaks is Mount Bashan." 

Mount Bashan vs Mount Zion

It's important to note that the meaning of Psalm 68:15-16 has changed in most recent Bible versions. Formerly, the verse read::

  • The mountaine of God is like the mountaine of Bashan: it is an high Mountaine, as mount Bashan. Why leape ye, ye high mountaines? as for this Mountaine, God deliteth to dwell in it: yea, the Lord will dwell in it for euer" - Geneva Bible of 1587

  • The mountain of Bashan is a mountain of God; The mountain of Bashan is a mountain of many peaks. - NASB Bible


The allusion was clearly made in relation to Mount Zion. Indeed, Mount Zion, like most of the biblical mountains, such as Mount Hermon, Mount Sinai and Mount Bashan, were not simple hills or isolated mountains, but rather mountain ranges with many high peaks or summits. 


The meaning of this passage is the following: Although Mount Bashan, by its elevation, strength, grandeur and sublimity, manifested the divine perfections and glory of God, it had no "advantage" over Mount Zion, which despite its low height and insignificance, could be compared in every respect to all other high mountain ranges. And although Mount Zion had nothing to attract attention or awe, it was nevertheless chosen as the place where God was to be worshipped. An honor far greater than that of the highest mountains.  

In Psalm 22:12, Jesus Christ refers to those who crucified him as strong bulls or mighty men of Bashan.

  • Psalm 22:12 "Many bulls surround me; strong bulls of Bashan encircle me."

Are we implying that Mount Zion is the center of Africa?  

Firstly, the African continent is much larger than most people realize. In fact, with a surface area of around 30,365,000 km², Africa is 78% larger than Russia, China, India, the contiguous USA and most of Europe combined.

However if you look closely at ancient maps of Central Africa prior to the 19th century, you'll notice several mountain ranges located in what was formerly known as Ethiopia, and which mainly encompassed the Congo Basin, but also Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and Burundi.

In 1665, the Jesuit Athanasius Kircher published the story of Paez in his Mundus Subterraneus, a work that focused in part on the idea that a network of underground waterways maintains the circulation of water throughout the earth. Kircher illustrated Paez's story with the fascinating map below, depicting the source of the waters in the core beneath the Mountains of the Moon.

These mountain ranges correspond to the region known as Aegypto. These legendary mountain ranges were known to cartographers as Jibbel El Kumri or Mountains of the Moon, and claimed by the Greek scholar Ptolemy to be the source of the White Nile, which supplied lakes Zaire to the north, Zembere to the south and Zaflan to the east. However, towards the end of the 19th century these mountain ranges were removed from maps on the grounds that such theory could not be proven. In the 1870s, explorer Henry Morton Stanley was the first European to report seeing the Mountains of the Moon or the Ruwenzori range, and he later affirmed that the source of the White Nile was Lake Victoria, rather than the lakes Zaire, Zembere and Zaflan previously mentioned by Ptolemy.


The Rwenzori, also spelled Rwenjura, or Rwenzururu, known to the natives as the Mountains of the Moon due to the whiteness of the snow-capped mountains, are a high range of mountains located in the heart of equatorial Africa, mainly in the Congo Basin, and bordering Uganda. These mountain ranges feature many vast, elevated forest peaks, permanently covered by ice and snow. The numerous rivers and stream-fed lakes of these mountain ranges flow into Lake Victoria, the world's largest tropical lake and second largest freshwater lake. Its gigantic basin crosses the borders of Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya, and extends into Rwanda and Burundi, forming the main reservoir of the White Nile.

Furthermore, the Congo Basin is also exceptionally rich in natural resources. Its soil is rich in world-class mineral deposits, including cobalt, gold, copper, timber, potash, lead, zinc, phosphate, manganese, uranium, niobium and tantalum derivatives, and iron ores. It produces 30% of the world's diamond reserves and 80% of the world's coltan reserves, and holds the second-largest reserves of gas and crude oil in Central and Southern Africa. It's the world's second-largest rainforest, with an abundant and very rich biodiversity, housing a huge array of rare animals. 

Unknown Land?

Phut or Put is the third son of Ham. In the Bible, Phut is described as a country or people from which some of Egypt's mercenary troops originated. 

  • Jeremiah 46:9 "Advance, O horses! Race furiously, O chariots! Let the warriors come forth—Cush and Put carrying their shields, men of Lydia drawing the bow!"


The Hebrew transliteration of the name Phut (פוּט), means "unknown". In Scripture, wherever the name "Libya" is used, the Hebrew term is "Phut".


In ancient Greece, Libya was one of the three well-known continents along with Asia and Europe, and designated the entire African continent. Thus, in biblical times, Africa was called Libya, which translates into Hebrew as Phut.

Some historians believe the aboriginal home of the Egyptian dynastic race originated in Punt. The inhabitants of Punt are described as being black and dark-skinned.

"They carry spears and shields. A general is leading them. Ahead of them, the people of Pount stand beseechingly. They are remarkable for the dark color of their skin. In the lead marches the chief. His long hair is woven into tight braids. A dagger hangs from his belt. His wife and servants are escorting him." Exposition universelle de 1876 by Auguste Mariette, Chap. 5 Couloir Circulaire, Pg. 24

Note that the Land of Punt is also called "Ta netjer", and described in ancient Egyptian texts as "The Land of God". Ancient literature held that the term "Land of God", interpreted as "Holy Land" or "Land of the Ancestors", meant that the ancient Egyptians regarded the Land of Punt as their ancestral homeland.

As mentioned above, in Hebrew, the transliteration of the name Phut (פוּט), means "unknown". Although there is much speculation about the kingdom of Punt, its exact location remains unknown to this day. Interestingly, around the 1700s, they began to produce maps identifying the whole of the Congo Basin and Southern Africa as unknown or unexplored lands, despite the fact that over thirteen centuries earlier, this so-called "unknown land" had been supplying Arabs with slaves, minerals and natural resources without interruption; and was not completely unknown to Europeans, who had named it "Ethiopia".

Interestingly, in the James Moffatt Bible published in 1901, we read in John 21:8: “While the rest of the disciples came ashore in the Punt (they were not far from land, only about a hundred yards), dragging their netful of fish.” This passage s the one where Jesus performed a miracle on the shores of the Sea of Galilee near the Jordan river.

  • The famous Sea of Galilee is where Jesus walked on the water, calmed the storm and made Peter and Andrew "fishers of men". It's also where Jesus fed the masses with a few loaves and fishes and delivered his Sermon on the Mount.

  • The Jordan River is the site of Jesus Christ's baptism, and the source of all holy water in Christianity.

So, according to Moffatt, Jesus was in the vicinity of Punt when he performed this miracle. This would imply that the location of the Sea of Galilee and the Jordan River is not in the north of present-day Israel, but ratherpossibly in central Africa.

Roman Catholics and Lutherans were particularly offended by Moffatt's Bible, as they felt it was controversial in several respects and put forward skeptical views. Although Moffatt relied heavily on the Greek text of Hermann Freiherr von Soden, who was a renowned German biblical scholar, priest of the Jerusalem Church in Berlin, professor of theology and literary theologian.


On the other hand, according to the teachings of traditional Christianity, Mount Zion is a hill located just outside the walls of modern Jerusalem in the present-day State of Israel (see images below). 



Is it logical to believe that the Lord will gather nations of all generations on this small hill and not in an entire continent? 

You be the judge and we encourage you to do your own research.
