Ra (Re) – The Red Sun God (gks 6)
Re (Ra), the Egyptian RED sun
Fact: Egyptian art reveals not one single golden glaring Sun with a complete 360° sweep of sun rays, why?
Why did the Ancient Egyptians depict the Sun as a red disk?
The following essay it is a perfect example of how the most obvious evidence can be overlooked. It shows how childlike observations can lead to incredible discoveries which irrefutably prove that planetary chaos is reaching out to us from the not so distant past.
To understand the God King Scenario (GKS) requires transporting yourself back in time to a world dominated by planets that appeared larger than the Sun; a time when Mars, Venus, Mercury and the Moon plus entourage ruled the heavens as divine kings and queens for an incredible 3,000 years.
I understand that for some such an outrageous theory is difficult to comprehend let alone accept, after all, apart from the Moon, these planets no longer dominate the heavens or reign (literally) over Earth. The divine royal family of ancient Egypt are now mere specks of light in the night sky or, as the Egyptians believed, divine stars in the ‘kingdom of Osiris.’ There is, however, one glaring orb that hasn’t altered its eternal path across the heavens or changed its shape and size. It is our source of light, energy and heat and it appears today just as it did millennia ago. I am of course referring to the Sun.
The Sun rises in the east, arcs across the sky and sets in the west in a very predictable and measurable 24-hour cycle. As the Sun was present throughout periods of planetary chaos, and taking into account the close relationship that existed between the sun god Ra and the divine Egyptian monarchy (The monarchy were offspring of the sun), the sun is the one orb we cannot ignore when discussing the GKS.
Ra, the Sun God
Re was typically represented as a sun-disk, or as a falcon-headed man wearing a red sun-disk on his head. This imagery points to the god’s solar character. With epithets such as ‘opening the day,’ ‘light,’ ‘shinest’ and ‘lord of all lands,’ we are presented with traits which are consistent with the life-giving properties of the Sun we experience today. This makes perfect sense, until we turn our attention to Re’s most common representation – the red disk.
This is Re’s solar disk. It features heavily in Egyptian art and there are hundreds of thousands of them adorning every monument, tomb and temple wall throughout Egypt. They can also be found painted on stela (round topped stones), decorated on the inside and outside of coffins and sarcophagi, and on artefacts, scrolls of papyrus, statues and even incorporated into Egyptian jewellery. Re’s red disk can be found everywhere. As the Sun was the primary source of life in ancient Egypt, such ubiquitous representation is only to be expected. That said, there is something unusual about the way the Egyptians represented our nearest star which is incredibly revealing when considered alongside planetary chaos.
The Egyptians always depicted the sun as a red disk!
It matters little where Re’s symbol is found. Whether used as part of the ‘sacred’ inscriptions or as a pictorial image dressed with wings, cow’s horns, plumes or cobras, Re’s most basic form consisted of a simple red disk – why?
The Sun is a blinding, golden-yellow disk with emanating rays – a ball of glaring, golden light – so why paint, what is by comparison, a lifeless red disk? Ask a child to paint the Sun and they will paint a yellow circle with yellow sunrays, an adult would do the same. So why didn’t the Egyptians portray the Sun as it appeared – a bright yellow disk with rays?
As one of the original creator gods, Re was ‘the lord of all lands’ and ‘the great light who shinest in the heavens.’ Life on Earth depended on Re and he was revered greatly. The Egyptians believed that he created the world, and the rising Sun was their symbol of creation. Would the Egyptians risk the wrath of this great god by ignoring its true form in this way?
The abundance of glorious reliefs proves that the Egyptians were proud of their art. Many pieces took months, if not years, to complete as each hieroglyph was meticulously carved and painted. The colours were of paramount importance and many gods had their own sacred colours. It therefore seems bizarre that they created a disk to represent the Sun and then proceeded to paint it red!
