Real Truth About Moses

By Dr. Kwame Nantambu

Ancient EgyptAt the outset, it must be stated that Moses was a black Afrikan man who was born in ancient Kemet (Egypt) during the reign of Pharaoh Harembab (1340— 1320 B.C.). He spent most of his life in Egypt and married an Ethiopian woman named Zipporah. They had two sons Gershon and Elieyer.

According to Dr. Ben Jochannan, Moses, who was born of the tribe of Levi, was miraculously saved by his sister while floating down the Nile River in a bulrush basket. He was put down the Nile by his mother because the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses I was killing all the Hebrew males born throughout the Kingdom.

The fact is that as a High Priest during the reign of Pharahoh Akhneton, (xxvth Dynasty, 1370 —1352 B.C). Moses was not only familiar and knowledgeable with “42 Negative Confessions” but also with the 10 categories of sins that existed. He was also familiar with the spiritual concept of Monotheism that Akhneton introduced to the people. Basically then, when he reached eastern Egypt (Mount Sinai), Moses prayed to Amun—Ra, the son of God of ancient Egypt. It was very easy for Moses to establish a new religion for his people as a result of his spiritual education and training in Western Egypt. Moses then collapsed the “42 Negative Confessions” into the “Ten Commandments” and he continued to embrace the concept of Monotheism. Moses used the concept of fire to receive the “Ten Commandments” because in ancient Egypt the spiritual God — force was represented by fire. In other words, the religion of the followers of Moses today is Afrikan in origin, including Christianity.

The reality is that there is NO such thing as “EXODUS”. That’s a mythical lie. The historical truism is provided by Dr. Yosef ben—Jochannan in his magnum opus titled African Origins of the Major Western Religions (1970) as follows:

It was only when Moses had to flee Pharaoh Ramses II’s anger because he had murdered Ramses’ representative — the solder — did Moses begin to plan the “EXODUS” of his fellow indigenous Egyptians of the Hebrew faith from Western to Eastern Egypt (from the Aswan end of the Nile River Delta to Mount Sinai) (p. 153).

In Black Christian Nationalism: New Directions for the Black Church (1972), Dr. ben—Jochannan suggests that Ramses II supposedly “chased Moses all over the Egyptian desert to avenge his soldier (or guard) whom Moses killed.” “Moses was charged with murder.” (pp. 301—303). Moses was fleeing from the scene of his crime in Egypt.

Moses was not freeing his people from the bondage of the tyrant Pharaoh Ramses II. He was attempting to free his people from ensuring punishment that his crime would have precipitated. Moses committed a SIN.

In ancient Egypt at this time, the Jews, formerly called Hebrews (Haribus) had migrated from Asia “a starving lot… (of) unfortunate nomads from Asia.” “There is no evidence that those lowly Asian Jews had any formalized education of a standard in any way comparable with that which the indigenous Afrikans of Egypt had developed.” Neither is there any evidence that they had a set code of ethics and morals that were contrary , or in support, of those they met in the Afrikan land—Egypt.” These Asian Jews were only shepherds when they entered Egypt.

These Jews entered Egypt circa 1632 B.C. until their “exodus” in 1232 B.C., during the reign of Ramses II, 1279—1212 B.C. The Egyptians not only accepted their Asian brothers and sisters, the Haribus, as equals but also integrated them into every aspect of Egyptian society.

Prior to this accepted integration, these Jews “had not established a Government anywhere, other than tribal groupings.” In addition, the major pyramids had already been built by the Pharaohs Khufu, Khafra and Menkara at Giza—a period which expanded 2680 —2258 B.C.

The fact of the matter is that the original 42 “Declarations of Innocence” or “Admonitions of Ma’at” can be found in the sacred spiritual texts inscribed on the walls of the Temple of Unas in ancient Kemet. According to the Euro—Christian Holy Bible, Acts 7:22, “Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was mighty in words and in deeds.”

When the Egyptian Moses took these ancient Kemetic laws to the Barbarians, he had to change them because he was speaking to illiterate people who were living in caves and hills of Europe and who had never lived a spiritual way of life. As such, Moses had to transfer the original Kemetic text “I have not…” to “Thou shall not…” that is, into Commandments.

These are the Original Afrikan — Kemetic spiritual:

“42 Declarations of Innocence”
“42 Admonitions of Ma’at”
“42 Negative Confessions”

  1. I have not done iniquity.
  2. I have not robbed with violence.
  3. I have not stolen.
  4. I have done no murder, I have done no harm.
  5. I have not defrauded offerings.
  6. I have not diminished obligations.
  7. I have not plundered the Netcher.
  8. I have not spoken lies.
  9. I have not snatched away food.
  10. I have not caused pain.
  11. I have not committed fornication.
  12. I have not caused shedding of tears.
  13. I have not dealt deceitfully.
  14. I have not transgressed.
  15. I have not acted guilefully.
  16. I have not laid waste the ploughed land.
  17. I have not been an eavesdropper.
  18. I have not set my lips in motion (against any man).
  19. I have not been angry and wrathful except for a just cause.
  20. I have not defiled the wife of any man.
  21. I have not defiled the wife of any man. (repeated twice)
  22. I have not polluted myself.
  23. I have not cause terror.
  24. I have not transgressed. (repeated twice)
  25. I have not burned with rage.
  26. I have not stopped my ears against the words of Right and Truth (Ma’at).
  27. I have not worked grief.
  28. I have not acted with insolence.
  29. I have not stirred up a strife.
  30. I have not judged hastily.
  31. I have not been an eavesdropper. (repeated twice)
  32. I have not multiplied words exceedingly.
  33. I have not done neither harm nor ill.
  34. I have never cursed the King.
  35. I have never fouled the water.
  36. I have not spoken scornfully.
  37. I have never cursed the Netcher.
  38. I have not stolen.
  39. I have not defrauded the offerings of the Netcher.
  40. I have not plundered the offerings to the blessed dead.
  41. I have not filched the food of the infant, neither have I sinned against the Netcher of my native town.
  42. I have not slaughtered with evil intent the cattle of the Netcher.

These “Negative Confessions” represent the FIRST moral code of ethics invented for a people to live by on a daily basis. Afrikans invented these moral codes in the B.C. era. These were developed before there was a Christian Holy Bible or an Islamic Holy Qur’an.

It took the ancient Afrikans fifty generations or 1,200 years to develop these moral, spiritual codes.

The reason why there are 42 “Confessions” is because there were 42 “Districts” or “Provinces” which the ancient Kemites — Afrikans — Egyptians called “Sepat”. When the Greeks (the world’s first Europeans) conquered Kemet in 332 B.C., they re—named them “Nomes”.

At that time also, there were ten categories of sins in Kemet (Egypt). Thus, the ten categories of sins that Moses, the Afrikan, used as the basis to formulate the so—called “Ten Commandments” already existed. They are as follows:

  1. “General sins against people”
  2. “Crimes against a person”
  3. “Crimes against the Gods”
  4. “Crimes against the King”
  5. “Crimes against the Dead”
  6. “Crimes against animals”
  7. “Crimes against Property”
  8. “Fraud”
  9. “Faults of morals and character”(1)
  10. “Faults of morals and character”(11)

As such it did not take a genius in rocket science or advanced calculus to collapse 42 into 10 and that’s precisely what the former Egyptian High Priest Moses did. Nothing more; nothing less.

These are the Derived Euro — Christian religious “Ten Commandments”

  1. I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt have no other Gods before me. (41)
  2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image…
  3. Thou shall not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain…(7, 37, 41)
  4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy…
  5. Honor thy father and thy mother. (1, 12, 28)
  6. Thou shalt not kill. (4)
  7. Thou shalt not commit adultery. (11, 20, 21)
  8. Thou shalt not steal. (2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 39, 40)
  9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor (8, 13, 18, 29)
  10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house or wife… (13, 20, 21, 29, 33)

Their derivative from the original 42 “Negative Confessions” are shown at the end of each.

In other words, the modern-day Euro-Christian “Ten Commandments” did not come or were received from God above; they are Afrikan — Kemetic in origin.

In this regard, one must clearly understand that there is a vast difference between original Afrikan spirituality and derived Euro-Christian religion.

Spirituality is defined as the direct connection, relationship and interaction with the universe, cosmos, nature and that spiritual God — force, Amun-Ra “the giver/creator of life”. HE IS THE GOD – FORCE THAT WAS BORN ON 25 DECEMBER AND NOT JESUS “the Christ.”

Religion is defined as the deification of a people’s cultural experiences, politics and political power control intent.

And this is precisely why Moses had to change the 42 “Confessions” which represented a daily way of life and being into “Commandments” as a medium for power, force and control of his people’s daily lives.

Afrikan people need to understand that in the B.C. era, Afrika was known as “the land of spiritual people”.

As a result of European supremacy, Afrika and Afrikans globally have been transformed into a “religious people” in the A.D. era to our powerless detriment. Afrikans have lost their original spirituality.

Afrikan people also need to understand that in the B.C. era, ALL the Gods were Black; now in the A.D. era, All the Gods are White. This represents European religious power-control supremacy at its zenith.

Now is the time in this 21st millennium for Afrikans on the Continent and in the Diaspora to retrieve, recapture, relocate, reclaim, reconnect, reorient and re-enact their original spirituality on a daily basis 24-7-365 as the most potent weapon in their armory to survive and empower themselves. Nothing else will do.

  • I would like to advise the author to carefully venture in subjects he is not qualified to handle. What are the sources he is using to substantiate his claims about Moses? Various handwriting and manuals of ‘Ben’

    I can barely pick out any fact in this piece except that Moses was from the tribe of Levi which goes back a couple of generations to Abraham and that Moses lived in a time when the Pharaoh used to kill the males and allow the females to live. One other thing is that he was floated down the river in an effort to be saved from the wretched plan of the Pharoah.

    There are some notable lies contained in this article. That Moses called upon the son of God?? What a blatant lie! Moses was a man and Prophet of Monotheism, He called on God without intermediaries. He clearly did not believe that God had a son.

    Here are some facts, Moses was a Prophet of The Almighty Creator. He followed the purest form of Monotheism known, Islam.
    The only source that assures the authenticity of information about Moses is Islam. I have seen no mention of the Tawrah by the author which shows his lack of research. How can you talk about Moses and Mt. sina and not quote the Tawrah?

    I advise the author to revise this article and present to the public more truth concerning MOSES.

  • Excellent post Dr. Nantambu. I will venture to say the reclaimation of our Goddesses and Gods will begin with a force that comes from the Western Hemisphere. With us, the offspring of the Ancient Kemetans/Afrikans that came west of our own mobility and mind-fullness. We cannot wait for the Afrikans that remain in Afrika to make this step forward. It is we Afrikans in the West that will mobilize this push. Please keep the Wisdom-Knowledge coming forward

  • Victor and others:
    The real Africa is thriving. Africa as portrayed in the Western Media is not. Let me make a comparison. If I went through Port-of-Spain with two digital cameras,one on my left shoulder, one on my right, and on the left one, I took pitures ofthe Botanic Gardens in the new rains of May, of the National Library, the Issa Nicholas building downtown, the views of the gulf from that building and from the top of the Crowne Plaza, and from Fort George at sunset after rains, and then drove up to UWI and got shots of the Admin. building, sitting grandly in its park of ancient trees, with young men practising soccer as a backdrop, then went to the Asa Wright nature preserve, and also shots from San Fernando Hill, I could make a case for beautiful, prosperous, peaceful place where one love lives and thrives. I could include the lights of Divala, Tassa drumming at Hosay, and Tobago’s Signal Hill Choir to round out the picture. In my other camera, hanging on my right shoulder, I get shots of Beetham GArdens after rain, with the dirty drains overflowing into yards where children play,and young women leaving for work with their shoes in their hands stepping over puddles. I could get the crippled woman begging on the street near Independence Square, the polluted air from the flare-offs at Pointe -a-Pierre, idle young men of both races, sitting in a rumshop on Sunday morning before noon(there are three on the road to the pitch lake that I could attest to. Landslides on the Central Range that have been there, and patched, and slid and patched, and a night shot of the beach at Store Bay, with the discarded bottles of Carib, left by daytrippers whose equipment did not include garbage bags, complete with roaming dogs would be included. I might get a shot of a young gunslinger dead in the street, or the report of a young wife chopped to death.

    Love of my country would lead me to publish the first set. Hatred of the people running my country would lead me to publish the second set.

    You have to know that the western European press isstill engaged in justifying their savergery towards Africa. They publish the latter pictures all the time, and those who have never taken the time to know otherwise, believe that stuff.

  • @Linda,
    I, was in no way disparaging Afrikans in Afrika. However, I am speaking from a view point from Afrikans that are friends of mine from Nigeria and Zimbabwe and the latter friend is living at this time in Ethiopia. Not from the mainstream news. I fully understand the dynamics behind commercial network news, and I fully agree with you. However, we in the West have to ability to bring forward, on a world wide scale, that our brothers and sisters in Afrika cannot at this time…
    @Brown, Some of the information about Moses (which by the way) is not a name but an adjective is not clear, period. Therefore, the work that George G.M. James, Dr. Leonard Jefferies, Dr. “Ben” and Cheik Anta Diop brought forth is just as valid. Just the mere fact that people refer to him by the adjective (Moses) and not his name itself shows a lack of insight. In the City of On at the time of the one called Moses it was a common ritual for women that could not take care of their children to put them on the Nile to hopefully be rescued by a woman of means. When we as Black/Afrikans lay our foundation for a debate in Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hebrewism we are start on a faulty foundation. Black people/Afrikans were on the Earth long before such a thing existed.

  • Point taken, Victor.

  • Separating Religion from ‘life’ is popular among the Europeans. This was deliberate and there were obvious objectives behind this ideology, enough for me is to remind you of this fact. This page is not the place for dwelling on this topic.
    You say that Afrikan were there before the Islam. This is an unfounded statement. Islam is the religion of the Prophets, from Adam all the way to Muhammad. They all practiced pure monotheism. Moses/ Musa was among them.
    For us to believe that it is right to separate religious practice from life shows that we are a direct product of the agenda of the treacherous Europeans, and they have affected us so badly that we are now paraphrasing their Belief.
    There is no force that brings all of mankind under one roof except the true religion of Islam. Refer to the biography of Bilal [Ethiopian], he was a dear companion of the Prophet Muhammad[Arab] and his esteemed position in Islam is undisputed. The Europeans know that Islam would and actually was bringing all the children of Adam together to serve their Creator [without prejudice] and they had to plot in order to derail this.
    They always had the thought that they were the superior lot.
    I can assure you that any attempt to bring humans together, if it is not to the religion of Monotheism, would fail.
    African of Trinidad [those who know french] must study the works of Haqqar, Chadian. He is well grounded and will provide you with information from the real African perspective.

  • Dr. Kwame Nantambu,
    It appears you did not list the confessions as written in the Text the Coming Forth by Day and by Night; therefore, please update your data based on the information below. I am referring to law 21. I am referring to the LAW AGAINST SODOMY! Don’t write about the laws if you can’t write truthfully about them.
