Amun – RA: The Birthday You should really be Celebrating every Year on December 25th
As with most widely worshiped Egyptian deities, Ra's identity was often combined with other gods, forming an interconnection between deities. Amen's wife was "Mut", which in Egyptian means "mother", and she was apparently the mother of Khons, the moon god. She was depicted either in the form of a vulture or in human form with a vulture, head-dress and the combined crowns of Upper and Lower Egypt.
Nu (Nun) and Naunet- Nu was the personification of the primordial chaos from which the world arose. Naunet is his female aspect and consort. Nu is commonly regarded as "Father of the Gods" while Naunet is only referenced regarding the Ogdoad, the grouping of eight primordial gods, four males matching four females, who represent the original elements of creation.
Linked to the god Kherty, another ram-headed god, though a completely different entity. He is the patron god of potters and those who work in ceramics.
Deities in Ancient Egypt - Anubis
With the patronage of Old Kingdom rulers she became one of Egypt's most important deities. More temples were dedicated to her than to any other goddess; her most prominent temple was Dendera in Upper Egypt.
Who worshiped Amun?
Amun was one of the most powerful gods in ancient Egypt. At the height of Egyptian civilisation he was called the 'King of the Gods'. However, when Amun was combined with the sun god Ra he was even more powerful. He was then called Amun-Ra. A large and important temple was built at Thebes to honour Amun.
Temple at Karnak
Amun thus became associated with the ram arising from the aged appearance of the Kush ram deity, and depictions related to Amun sometimes had small ram's horns, known as the Horns of Ammon. A solar deity in the form of a ram can be traced to the pre-literate Kerma culture in Nubia, contemporary to the Old Kingdom of Egypt.
She was also known as "Cleanser of Ra" who bathed the sun before it appeared in the dawn sky and personified the freshness of the morning sun. Heset - Goddess of food and drink associated with beer and enjoyment. She was an early goddess of Egypt depicted as a cow with a tray of food on her horns and milk flowing freely from her udders. Beer was referred to as "the milk of Heset".
He presided over the Sed Festival (also known as the Heb-Sed Festival) which was held every thirty years of a king's rule to rejuvenate him. He was eventually absorbed by Wepwawet or it could be that Wepwawet (whose name means "Opener of the Ways") was simply one of Sed's epithets which became more popular. As protector of the divine king, Sed was associated with justice and so linked to the goddess Ma'at.
She is also linked to Sothis (Sopdet), the personification of the star Sirius whose appearance in the night sky heralded the inundation. She is depicted as a woman wearing the White Crown of Upper Egypt with antelope horns. Reshep- A Syrian war god assimilated into Egyptian worship during the period of the New Kingdom ( BCE).
As goddess of measurements she ensured the king measured correctly in commissioning the building of temples and monuments and assisted him in measurements for rituals. She is first mentioned in the Second Dynasty (c. BCE) as helping king Khasekemwy in this regard.
- She was worshipped during the period of the Old Kingdom (c. BCE) as a life-giving spirit who also protected the souls of the dead in the afterlife.
- He is the patron god of potters and those who work in ceramics.
- Since the Egyptians believed in the concept of Ma’at, which meant order, peace, and balance, death was regarded as importantly as life.
- Quite likely invoked as a protectress of widows but references to her are rare and Isis fulfilled that role as she did so many others.
- Every time people say the Lord’s “Prayer”, at the end they add a one word salutation, “AMEN”.
What does so mote it be mean?
Some psalms are called "maskil" (maschil) because in addition they impart wisdom. Most notable of these is Psalm 142 which is sometimes called the "Maskil of David", others include Psalm 32 and Psalm 78. The term derives from maskil meaning "enlightened" or "wise".
During the time of the Roman Empire, she was worshipped in every corner of their realm from Britain through Europe to Anatolia. The Cult of Isis was the strongest opponent of the new religion of Christianity between the 4th-6th centuries CE, and iconography, as well as tenets of belief, of the Isis cult were incorporated into the new faith. Imagery of the Virgin Mary holding her son Jesus comes directly from Isis cradling her son Horus and the Dying and Reviving God figure of Jesus himself is a version of Osiris.
"What does the Almighty expect from us?" Our intentions may be pure, but why persist in clinging to habits and traditions which have spurious origins or connotations? Do we really need this word to express our convictions and praises? Has Satan managed to hide him in worship to unsuspecting believers to this day? He has revealed to us that we should NOT use the word Amen unless we are explaining to others why it shouldn't be used.
The Dictionary Is More Than The Word Of The Day

Shesmetet- A protective leonine goddess known as "Lady of Punt" and most likely an important goddess brought to Egypt through trade with Punt. She is generally regarded as an aspect of Bastet or Sekhmet but quite possibly she was a much older deity whose attributes were absorbed by later leonine goddesses.

I just wanted you to know that I read your comment. Most people know how to have an opinion but not to research it. I stopped trying a while ago but the anthropologist in me appreciates your efforts. That being said your comment was on point. Amen or Amun (egyptians did not use vowels) is literally taken from the Egyptian religion and people refuse to do any research whatsoever including the person who wrote this bullshit article.
