The winter solstice is upon us once again, so in honor of the 2015 winter solstice here is some information about the solar myth of Jesus as it relates to the winter solstice, summer solstice, fall and vernal (spring) equinoxes.
A large part of the myth of Jesus is taken from the African-Kemetic/Anu (Egyptian/Ethiopian) mythical characters Osiris, Horus and Isis. Jesus is a mythical solar linked Christian son of god, similar to several African-Kemetic/Anu creator solar gods: Ra, Aten, Amen-Ra, Atum (Atem or Tem) and Khepri (Khepra or Khepera), this will be addressed in another post.
The solar creator god Amen-Ra was created by combining two separate gods Amen and Ra into one god. The name of the mythical god Amen has been used and reworked into several world religions; it is used to end prayers in Christianity and Judaism, as well as affirmations during sermons. These religions are paying homage to an African-Kemetic/Anu god, but most followers of these religions are unaware of it. You also find his name in spiritual writings like the Christian and Hebrew Bibles. Islam uses “Amin,” “Ameen,” or some variation of Amen as an affirmation in their prayers and the Koran.

Note: The Old Testament of the Christian Bible is comprised of the exact same books that comprise the religious book of Judaism—called the Tanakh.
The Christian Bible and Tanakh of Judaism states: That God finished the creation in six days and rested on the seventh day, which he blessed and sanctified. The seventh day is the Sabbath day, which is to be remembered and kept holy. No work is to be done on this day, because it has been blessed by God. The Ten Commandments are the only thing written in the Bible and Tanakh of Judaism that is supposedly actually written by god.
4th—of the Ten Commandments
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.”
However, despite these texts (Genesis 1:31, Genesis 2:1–3) and the 4th Commandment, most Christians around the world attend church on Sunday, the first day of the week, not the seventh day, which is Saturday. Sunday obviously gets its name from the sun, and many Christians knowingly disobey their own Scriptures because Christianity is a solar (sun)-based religion.
The men who wrote the myth of Jesus connected his myth with the sun. The “Son of God” rose in three days, on the first day of the week (Sunday). Because Jesus rose on the first day of the week (Sunday), most Christians attend church and celebrate the Sabbath on Sunday. The verses in the Bible cited for Jesus rising on the first day of the week are: Matthew 28:1-6, Luke 24:1-8, and Mark 16:1-11.
Mark 16:1-2 states: “And when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulcher at the rising of the sun.”
Seventh-Day Adventists, however, follow the strict guidelines for the Sabbath day; they attend church to worship God on Saturday. Followers of Judaism and Seventh-Day Adventists observe the Sabbath day from sunset on Friday, when God finished his work of creation, to sunset on Saturday.
The sun gives us life and light, and Jesus is often associated with the word “light” in the Christian Bible.
46. I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
12. Then spake Jesus unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, shall have the light of life.
5. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
14. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
The death of Jesus ia a well-known Christian myth; he was crucified on a cross; placed in a sepulcher (burial chamber); rose after three days; then ascended up into heaven to live with God. This myth is almost identical to what happens during the autumnal equinox, winter solstice, vernal equinox, and summer solstice in the northern hemisphere.
Note: Scientifically, the reason for the movement of the sun on the horizon and the appearance from earth of being lower or higher in the sky is because of the movement of the earth, as it revolves around the sun in an elliptical orbit and spins on its axis.
In the northern hemisphere, the autumnal equinox arrives on September 22 or 23 (depending on the year), when the sun is centered on the earth’s equator. When the sun rises in the east, it is in the middle of the horizon, and when the sun sets in the west, it is in the middle of the horizon; the sun forms a “celestial cross” and is “crucifying the horizon.”
The sun’s movement on the horizon during this time of year is from north to south (southward) as it crosses the earth’s equator. The sun is also descending (or becoming lower) in the sky as seen from earth. The sun has crossed over or passed over the earth’s equator by September 24.
Also after the autumnal equinox, the sun is moving lower and lower in the sky as seen from earth. It reaches its lowest point in the sky as viewed from earth and is the closest to earth on December 21 or 22 (the winter solstice) thru the first week in January (the “perihelion”). At the winter solstice the sun is directly overhead at the Tropic of Capricorn at noon on December 21 or 22 (depending on the year).
At the winter solstice the sun appears to stop its movement on the horizon (because of the earth’s elliptical orbit around the sun) and stops, pauses, dies, or is buried. About three days after the sun stops, pauses, dies, or is buried, it is resurrected or reborn and begins to rise up in the sky again as viewed from earth, as it starts moving northward (south to north) on the horizon.
There is another crucifixion of the sun on the horizon during the vernal (spring) equinox, the time of year Easter is celebrated. Easter is always celebrated and falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon on or after the vernal (spring) equinox, March 20 or 21.
The sun then continues northward on the horizon and crosses over or passes over the celestial point of crucifixion and ascends or rises to its highest point in the sky on June 20 or 21 (the summer solstice) thru the first week of July (the “aphelion”).
The sun is directly overhead at the Tropic of Cancer at noon on the day of the summer solstice. The sun on the day of the summer solstice at sunrise reaches its most northern point on the horizon. The sun again pauses for about three days before reversing itself and heading south again on the horizon.
The myth of Jesus is man-made, but it follows the natural law of nature and the universe as it mimics the perceived movement of the sun, caused by the earth being tilted on its axis, spinning, and wobbling as it revolves around the sun in an elliptical orbit. .
