As our big brother Solomon said, there is nothing new under the sun. But with all things, it must be proven. In this edition of ‘Nothing New Under The Sun’ we will be going over Egypt. How nothing has changed from the first Egypt (Ancient Egypt) to the second Egypt (Modern America). The things we will look into will be how both civilizations had Hebrews oppressed through hard labour, homosexual practices of the land, segregation, being forced to “make brick without straws” and killing the Hebrew children.

Oppression of the Hebrews:
The oppression of the Hebrews in Egypt began when the rise of a new pharaoh who didn’t know Joseph, a brother of the Children of Israel, said the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we are (came only to Egypt with 70 people). Let us deal wisely with them unless they multiply and it come to pass that when there comes a war, they join our enemies and fight against us. Therefore they set up taskmasters to afflict them with burdens.
In America there are taskmasters set over the same Hebrews, who are called bywords such as Negro or African-American. These task masters started off in the form of slavery with slave masters. Now there are taskmasters in the form of police and government assistance, such as public housing. Just as the Egyptians watched over the Hebrews in Goshen, slave masters and police patrol the same way throughout communities where the Hebrews (Negroes) are. The other form of taskmasters is government assistance. Most government assistance is only offered to single mothers, meaning there is no father at home. Some may not view that as oppression but with the people father out of the house it takes away the value of family, it’s morals and its values. This scenario alone has brought many burdens to families and throughout communities.
Homosexuality in Egypt:
In ancient Egypt there were open acts of homosexuality, it is even drawn within their hieroglyphics. In America, it is now open with acts of homosexuality since there has been movements made to shoot the act. They have parades and images showing the act as they did in Egypt. The deities that were worshipped in Egypt are written in their text to have had homosexual relations and some were intersex (male and female organs).
The pharaohs, if a man, wore makeup to keep them looking young and alive. Some women who became pharaoh had shaved heads and wore false beards to signify kingship (being a man). We see this today in America with what they call transsexual or transgender. These actions are not morally right and was not forbidden, but accepted, like today.
“Make Brick Without Straw”:
In ancient Egypt there plan to afflict Hebrews was in full affect. They made their lives bitter with hard bondage in all manner of service in the field, they made them to serve with cruelty. The same affect is happening here in America to the Hebrews (so called African-Americans) with getting maximum work for minimum wage. Still expecting for everything to be handled and for them to survive off of minimum wage. Just as when pharaoh commanded the taskmasters of the Hebrews to no longer give them straw to make brick, but let them get it themselves and still have the same amount of work done.
Believe it or not, Egypt has its own rules of segregation also. We can clearly see this through when Joseph (a Hebrew who dwelt in Egypt and was thought of as an Egyptian), brothers game to Egypt seeking food during the famine. When it came time to set the bread, they set some for Joseph by himself, then for the Hebrews their bread to eat by themselves and the Egyptians who ate with Joseph by themselves. This is because in Ancient Egypt it was an abomination for Egyptians to eat bread with the Hebrews. As that was an abomination in Egypt, it was an abomination in America. Not only with eating arrangements but in all aspects of living. This was accomplished through what they call Jim Crow where from 1874 to 1975 this system was able to keep Americans and Hebrews (so called African-Americans) separate from each other. Because it is viewed as an abomination to share anything with the Hebrews.
Killing of Hebrew Children:
The king of Egypt told the Hebrew midwives that when the Hebrew women deliver a child, if it is a male kill him, if a daughter let her live. Understanding that it is the males that extends the lineage of a nation, he made this order against the Hebrews. In America, this same executive order is on the same people. Throughout the past, our children were used as “bait” to catch alligators (This is also seen on the hieroglyphics of Egyptians pyramid walls, it was even shown in the movie Prince of Egypt). Nowadays when our children are delivered through labor they offer them vaccines that is not needed for a babies health, but actually sickens the baby. They also provide abortion clinics in our communities promoting what they call “planned parenthood”. Throughout all of America, 79% of “planned parenthood” abortion clinics are in our communities, giving the option to take away our children and destroy our nation. With this availability, abortions have become the number one cause of death for Hebrews (so called African-Americans). Taking away the lives of 16,000,000 Hebrew babies since 1973.
Different day, same results. With these few angles that have been presented showing similarities of ancient Egypt and modern America, here at TheWAV613 we hope that this has been helpful towards you seeing that there is nothing new under the sun.
ALL ESTEEM TO YAHUAH!
