According to Oahspe, for three hundred years prior to 1550 b.c.e., which was the end of the cycle of Cpenta Armij, the northern and eastern kingdoms of Heleste and Pars’ie (a large expanse from the Mediteranean north, south and eastward to Persia) were driven to war by Baal and Ashtaroth. And so, by 1550 b.c.e., there were millions of people from the east who had migrated into Egypt, among these were Faithists escaping the wars resulting from Baal and Ashtaroth’s struggles to gain dominion and territory. Some biblical scholars attribute the Hyskos rule to Israelites, but the peace-seeking Israelites, did not come as warriors making themselves dominant in the territory they occupied, but rather they became servants to the Egyptians who dominated the regions:
Oahspe, Bk of the Arc of Bon,
|| 27/14.20. For more than three hundred years, the God Baal and the Goddess
Ashtaroth had driven the foreign kingdoms to war; and as a consequence of
these wars the Faithists had fled into Egupt, and even accepted servitude rather
than be slain elsewhere.||
The disruption of war and relocation of large numbers of Asiatics to the more peaceful regions of Egypt is also reflected in Egyptian art and culture of the Middle Kingdom, as evidenced in Egyptian art of that period, depicting Asiatics in peaceful travel with family and domestic goods, or Egyptian domestic scenes depicting Asiatics in service to the wealthy Egyptians. During the reign of Amenemhet III, near the end of the Middle Kingdom period, many Asiatic workers, including laborers, soldiers and craftsmen, came to Egypt.
In context with the Oahspe account, it can be seen that the military experience of the eastern warriors under Baal and Ashtaroth’s inspiration with their horse drawn chariots and advanced weaponry, later adopted by the Egyptians, was not derived from the Hebrews, but from warrior Asiatics under the inspiration of Baal and Ashtaroth. The Eastern Delta regions of Egypt were a major point of interface with migrating Asiatics, where trade flourished and foreign technology was absorbed by the Egyptians. The power base of the Middle Kingdom was close to the Eastern Delta regions at Itjtawy (south of Memphis at the upper end of the delta), providing the Pharaoh with the advantage of tribute, trade and Asian innovative technology over the southern areas of Egypt.
According to conventional Egyptology, the rise of the Hyksos was supposed to have culminated in a century of Hyksos rule prior to 1550 b.c.e, The supposed fragmentation of the upper and lower kingdoms of Egypt into separate dynasties is believed to have been as a result of the growing numbers of Asiatics (Hyksos) gaining dominance in the delta regions. However, numerous scholars dispute this as a misrepresentation of the subordinate positions that Egyptians allowed Asiatics to take in provincial regions within the Egyptian Hegemony. Again, this is reflected in the power structures of the 12th Dynasty of the Middle Kingdom:

||Nomarchs were the semi-feudal rulers of Ancient Egyptian provinces. Serving as provincial governors, they each held authority over one of the 42 nomes (Egyptian: sepat) into which the country was divided.….The position of the nomarch was at times hereditary, while at others nomarchs were appointed by the pharaoh. The balance of power between nomarchs and the central government varied from one pharaoh's rule to the next. Generally, when the national government was stronger, nomarchs were appointed governors. But when the central government was weaker – at times of foreign invasion or civil war, for example – rulers of individual nomes would assert themselves and establish hereditary lines of succession…..||
||In the Middle Kingdom the Ancient Egyptians developed a new government where the pharaoh did not have total power over Egypt. The officials got their way. However, this did not mean that their civilization was weak or that the pharaohs did not have any power. In fact, strong pharaohs of the 12th dynasty had complete authority…..The Middle Kingdom was formed after a series of wars between the rulers of Upper Egypt (the South) and Lower Egypt (the North). The rulers of Upper Egypt won, and they reunified the country about 2000 BC, with the capital first at Thebes in the south, and then at a new city just south of Memphis. The Pharaohs of this period are not as powerful as before. They show themselves as taking care of their people, instead of as god-kings as in the Old Kingdom. They are the shepherds of the people now. The nomarchs (local officials) are powerful.|| Various sources of education material for schools.
The interface of the incoming Asiatics with Egyptians was controlled through laws which were designed to enslave those who would not adopt Egyptian religion, this in turn also affected many Faithists to adopt Egyptian ways, as per the Oahspe account:
Bk of the Arc of Bon
||27/14.11. Among the Sun laws were the following, to wit: The God of
Gods (i.e., Osiris) decrees Whoever does not bow down to me, shall
not partake of me. Behold, mine is the sign of the circle! My enemies
shall not receive great learning.
12. They shall not hold sun places (be employers), but shall be as
servants only all their lives. And these signs shall discover them:
13. If they worship not me, but the Great Spirit;
14. If they deny that the Creator is in the image of a man;
15. Then their possessions are forfeited already; nor shall they possess
houses in their own names; nor send their children to the schools; for
they shall be servants and the servants of servants forever.
17. Under the Eguptian laws it was accounted a sufficient crime of
idolatry to worship the Great Spirit, Jehovih, that the Israelites were
not even admitted to the courts to be tried for an offence, but fell under
the jurisdiction of the master for whom they labored, and his
judgments were unappealable.
18. Among the Israelite [4 million] not all were of full faith, but many, to shirk the rigors of the Sun laws, professed to be worshippers of God (Osiris), and they would also enlist as soldiers, and otherwise connive in the ways of men, for sake of favour.
19. For which reason the Sun King (Pharaoh*) feared the time might
come when the Israelites might revolt against the Sun laws or become
solders and confederate with foreign kingdoms for the overthrow of the
This concurs with the historical evidence that not all the Hebrews who came to Egypt remained servants, but sought advancement within Egyptian culture and society. And so there is an understandable blurring of historical definitions between Hebrew Faithist and Hyksos (warrior Asiatic).
The upper regions (southern) of Egypt were kept in submission to the Lower Regions (northern) in the Middle Kingdom before the fragmentation of Osiris’ dominions in the lower heavens until about 250 years before the end of the cycle of Cpenta Armij, i.e. 1800 b.c.e. At this point Osiris’ kingdom became divided and several of his generals rebelled and took fragments for themselves. One interesting detail that confirms the name of one of these rebel generals is the name taken by the rulers of the 17th Dynasty. Tao I and Tao II both carry the name of Teo-Judas who seceded from Osiris kingdom, taking over the lower heavens above South Arabin’ya (South Egypt). Upon fragmentation, the southern region of Egypt, under the dominion of Teos-Judas in the lower heaven, probably began its own dynasty at least 100 years before the end of the cycle of Cpenta Armij. The inherited status granted to the nomarchs by Amenemhat II reflects these divisions of power, which nevertheless, remained subject to the Pharaoh of Egypt as nome states, until sometime during the reign of Amenemhat III, when the nomarchs were disinherited.
Oahspe reveals that Nu-ghan was under the inspiration of Baal, indicating that by the time Ahmose I, as a prince of the southern nome region of Egypt, centred in Thebes, succeeded to the Pharaonic throne of Egypt, Teos-Judas had been replaced by Baal, usurping the remnants of Osiris Kingdom in the lower heavens at the end of the Cpenta Armij cycle. The unification of the southern nome region of Upper Egypt with the Egyptian throne in Lower Egypt now appears to Egyptologists to be the work of Ahmose I, rather than a matter of succession to the existing Pharaonic throne of Egypt which had, up until then, been occupied by the 12th Dynasty rulers.
