MISR, What's behind the name?

MISR is Arabic for Egypt. But do we know what else is behind that name?

Let us take a brief look at this name MISR and see what else interesting we can find. First of all, MISR (Egypt) is known as the light of the world and for good reasons. It is said to be the first civilized nation to worship and express a belief in the one and only God, (though in the beginning, they did not know what to name or call him). They did not, as we are told, worship animals and other Gods. What they could not see or feel they formed and image of, these were personifications of the one God they worshipped.

It gave to mankind the first laws; I have not killed, I have not born false witness, I have not stolen, I have not coveted etc. There were forty-two (42) of these laws, which the Egyptians called negative confessions, also, an interesting note; there was one for each Nome (each state in ancient Egypt was called a Nome). 1600-1700 years before Christ, in Egypt, we had the first enunciation of the Immaculate Conception. Osiris the father God impregnated Isis who then gave birth to Horus.

Egypt gave many things to the world as mentioned above and others such as the calendar, astrology, etc.; and as we research and study; we find more facts to lead us to believe that Egypt was the teacher of the world.
