A spiritual battle has been fought on the earth and in the heavens for thousands of years. Many of us angels, good and bad who are living today, are born ignorant of this fierce war for our souls. Some of us will lose by default from our simple lack of knowledge, thus becoming ignorant tools used as spiritual weapons by either side. Other people will bare the sins of their parents and ancestors who had fallen like Lucifer, as they try to right the wrongs in order to ascend to the light.
To understand this cosmic war, you must first try to comprehend the occult (hidden) nature and esoteric (secret) doctrines that govern it. Part of this understanding comes from knowledge of who you are, who your ancestors were, and the hierarchy of angels that hold government on the AS ABOVE, who thus direct the affairs of humans on the SO BELOW.
THE BURNING SERPENT ANGELS OF FIRE WHO GOVERN THE WORLD
Some of these angels on high who govern on low here on earth are known biblically as the “Seraphs or the Seraphim”. They are six-winged beings that fly around the Throne of God crying “holy, holy, holy.” The seraphs hold 5th rank of ten in the Jewish angelic hierarchy and the highest rank in the Christian angelic hierarchy of angels that govern this current world. The various spellings of the Hebrew name Seraphs are the Greek Hellenized version of the Egyptian Osiris-Apis which is spelled Serapis, Sarapis (Σάραπις, Dorian Greek), Sor-apis (Σέραπις, Attic/Ionian Greek), Serapin (Greek Ὄφις), and the name ‘Seraphim’ being the plural form.
These names all have similar meanings such as “the burning ones, burning spirits, fiery angels or burning angels.” The meaning of the name Seraph is also synonymous, with serpent and seraphim being the plural for serpents. They are the serpents who bit the children of Israel in the wilderness. Doctors and Scholars of the Jewish Church such as Rabbi Bechai had said this about the serpent who tempts Eve in Genesis (Gen. iii. 14); “This is the secret (or mystery) of the holy language, that a serpent is called saraph, as an angel is called saraph;” and ” hence the Scriptures called serpents seraphim (Numb. xxi. 6—8), because they were the offspring of this old saraph.”
These burning angels who are also known as serpents, are also mentioned as celestial beings in the Book of Enoch and the Book of Revelation. They are the fiery angels burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God as spoken of in Revelation 4:5 – “And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.”
In the Old Testament, the Prince of the Seraphim is named Beelzebub, and who holds office just below Lucifer who is King. In the New Testament and the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Archangel St Michael is placed over all the Angels as Prince of the Seraphim. But Christ is the head of all principalities and powers. (Col. ii. 10.)
The Greek historian Diodorus Siculus had said that Serapis is not only the same as the Egyptian Osiris, and Hammon, but also the same as the Greek Dionysus, Jupiter, Pan, and Pluto. Plutarch had said the earlier Serapis was none other than Osiris himself. (Plut.,de Sid., c. 28.). He also informs us that it was the Greco-Egyptain Pharoah, Ptolemy I who had introduced Serapis, or serpent worship from Sinope in Asia Minor to the East. It was at this time when Serapis had taken the place of all the Gods as the supreme deity during reign of the Ptolemy Pharaohs. Ptolemy I was the ruler of Egypt from 323–283 BC and he was also the founder of both the Ptolemaic Kingdom, and the Ptolemaic Dynasty. In the year 305 BC he took the title of pharaoh.
Ptolemy I was also known as Ptolemy Soter. The meaning of the name Soter is savior. Hence, Ptolemy I was known as the Soter or savior of the East. Later during the reign of the Romans, and shortly after the death of Julius Caesar who was known in Rome as a God, his son Octavian Caesar would take the venerable name of Augustus to become their savior with his official anointing as both Pontifex Maximus and savior under PAX RAMONA. Thus becoming the first Vicar of Christ, cornerstone of the Catholic Church, and Christened as their savior of this new age under the New Testament (New Law). A moment in time, officially ending the reign of the Greco-Egyptian Ptolemaic empire, their Egyptian calendar, and the old Testament (Old Law). The meaning of the name Christ simple means anointed, and is the equivalent of the Hebrew word Messiah.
Manes was the founder of the Gnostic religion of the 3rd-4th centuries A.D., known as Manichaeism. He had taught his followers serpent worship under the name of early Christianity. He had said; ” Christ was an incarnation of the Great Serpent, who glided over the cradle of the Virgin Mary, when she was asleep, at the age of a year and a half.”
The Seraphim are the intellectual angels with a divine consciousness, who are burning up of self-awareness that accompanies deep spiritual comprehension of divine reality. Some of these angels include Saint Michael, Gabriel, and St. Francis who was the founder of the Cordeliers and the Franciscans. He was known as the Seraphic Father and Seraphic Saint, for he was on fire for the Lord. In 1224, St. Francis had received the stigmata, making him the first recorded person to bear the wounds of Christ’s Passion. A companion of Francis, Brother Leo had left us the first definite account of the phenomenon of stigmata.”Suddenly he saw a vision of a seraph, a six-winged angel on a cross. This angel gave him the gift of the five wounds of Christ.”
The 15th century Italian medieval scholastic theologian and philosopher, St. Bonaventure is called the Seraphic Doctor for his love and zeal of St Francis. Our current Pope had taken his name after the Seraphic Saint Francis, and his actions as the Vicar of Christ prove his fiery zeal for the Lord. In the year since he has become Pontifex Maximus, he has more than lived up to his chosen name.
With the symbol of Jesus, St Mark informs us, “With the form of a serpent, He kills the serpent, for the serpent made out of the rod swallowed up the other serpents.” Hence, “The power of the serpent of Egypt was broken on the cross.” – Justin Martyr
