In ancient Egypt, the serpent Apep (Apophis) was known as the evil god who lived in the underworld, and was the most wicked enemy of Ra. Apep was personified with the darkness of the darkest hour of the night, against which the God of light Ra must not only battle, but fight successfully before he could rise in the east in the morning.
Ra was worshipped as a savior, and Apep worshipped against as the destroyer. Ra was the bringer of light and order, and upholder of Ma’at. Apep was the bringer of darkness, and Lord of Chaos. Apep was often depicted as a giant snake/serpent, and was sometimes called the Serpent from the Nile and Evil Lizard. Some accounts even said that his body stretched 16 yards in length and had a head made of flint.
The Egyptians believed that Apep lived in the waters (blood) of the Egyptian underworld (earth), Duat, and would rouse from his slumber every night to attack Ra’s boat as it made its way through the underworld. The Duat is the realm of the gods and supernatural beings. It is the region through which the god of light Ra travels from west to east during the night as he battles the demon worm Apep.
In many of my past articles, I had explained that these ancient accounts of serpents, snakes and dragons through all ancient cultures were myths explained in allegorical fashion, and exoteric explanations to personify the human battle with forces of darkness that we know of today simply as worms and human parasites.
This ancient fight between the forces of light and darkness and serpents (dragons) and men, is what I like to call the eternal alchemical battle for dominion of your soul while incarnated in the flesh. As I have often stated many times before, there is a war for your soul that is being fought on a daily basis, and those of you who are not aware of this age-old fact have most likely lost the battle to the demon worm of darkness and chaos, Apep before they have even began to fight.
It is at night, that the forces of darkness which infest humans today, and that are known by names such as pinworms and threadworms, are most active. The adult worms live in the colons (large intestines) of humans, and the female worms migrate to the lower bowel out of the person’s anus to lay their eggs. What the ancient cultures such as the Egyptians had depicted in the demon serpent Apep, was the eternal battle with these parasites that use the human body to survive and reproduce.
Just look at these worms above and don’t they now resemble some type of evil monster or demon like Apep?
These worms can also become almost demon like in their manners if the human host starts to lose the battle with them. A lost fight, that I believe then allows the worm to control the mind (blood and brain) of their victims. This process can be compared to a pack of wild animals that converge on their prey by gang stalking, and then attacking their victims with a full on assault that almost always ends in death for the unfortunate victim. This same thing happens with worms, but on a smaller scale, with smaller teeth and a slower death than we see happen with wild pack animals.
Is there truly a war for your soul, Lord or your Ba with the ancient serpent (worm) Apep?
This I believe is confirmed by the ancient Egyptians who were well-known as some of the most ancient alchemists, with Apep who was sometimes known as the “Eater of Souls” in which the dead needed protection, so they were often buried with magic spells that could destroy him. In the Book of the Dead, it describes how Ra defeated the chaos demon serpent called Apep in which 7 spells of 39 can be explained as such.
In the book “The Gods of the Egyptians,” or “Studies in Egyptian Mythology, Volume 1” by Sir Ernest Alfred Wallis Budge, he details these chapters; In the 34th Chapter the deceased says:
“Get thee back, “Fiend, before the darts of his beams. Ra hath overthrown “thy words, the gods have turned thy face backwards, the Lynx hath torn open thy breast, the”Scorpion goddess, cast feters upon thee, and “Maat hath sent forth thy destruction. Those who are in the “ways have overthrown thee; fall down and depart, O Apep, “thou Enemy of Ra.” A little further on the deceased says: “I “have brought fetters to thee, O Ra, and Apep hath fallen because “thou hast drawn them tight. The gods of the South, and of the “North, of the West and of the East have fastened chains upon “him, and they have fastened him with fetters; the god.
From the “Books of Overthrowing Apep,” it provides information how to destroy this demon worm, which was said to be recited daily in the temple of Amen-Ra at Thebes. The first Book was divided into Chapters, which were entitled:
1. Chapter of spitting upon Apep.
2. Chapter of defiling Apep with the left foot.
3. Chapter of taking a lance to smite Apep.
4. Chapter of fettering Apep.
5. Chapter of taking a knife to smite Apep.
6. Chapter of putting fire upon Apep.
The following Books describe with great detail the destruction which was to fall upon Apep. First he is to be speared, then gashed with knives, and every bone of his body having been separated by red-hot knives, and his head, and legs, and tail, etc., having been cut off, his remains were to be scorched, and singed, and roasted, and finally shrivelled up and consumed by fire. The same fate was to come upon Apep’s confederates, and everything which formed parts of him and of them, i.e., their shadows, souls, doubles, and spirits (1)
In Egyptian Magic, by Sir Ernest Alfred Wallis Budge, he had written that book called “The Book of Overthrowing Apep,” which contained two versions of the history of the Creation, and a list of the evil names of Apep, and a hymn to Ea. One chapter is dedicated to putting the “fire upon Apep,” where it is written, ” Fire be upon thee, “Apep, thou enemy of Ea! The Eye of Horus prevails “over the accursed soul and shade of Apep, and the Chapter of Coming Forth by Day, p. 89: ” flame of the Eye of Horus shall gnaw into that enemy “of Ea; and the flame of the Eye of Horus shall consume all the enemies of the Mighty God, life! “strength! health! both in death and in life. When “Apep is given to the flame,” says the rubric, ” thou “shalt say these words of power:—Taste thou death, “O Apep, get thee back, retreat, O enemy of Ea, fall “down, be repulsed, get back and retreat! I have “driven thee back, and I have cut thee in pieces.”
Taste thou death, Apep.
Taste thou death, Apep.
Taste thou death, Apep.
Taste thou death, Apep.”
These last sentences were said four times, that is to say, once for each of the gods of the cardinal points. The text continues, “Back, Fiend, an end to thee! “Therefore have I driven flame at thee, and therefore “have I made thee to be destroyed, and therefore have “I adjudged thee to evil. An end, an end to thee! “Taste thou death! An end to thee! Thou shalt never “rise again.”(2)
