The ancient symbology of the serpent that can be witnessed for the last three thousand years all over the world in places such as Egypt, Crete, Greece and also the serpent in the Garden of Eden is really just a wise worm, and the little king of earth. This fact was somewhat of a surprise to me, and I know it will be to many of my readers. However, if you understand that the worm is one of the most ancient and strongest creatures on earth that is now being verified by science as fact, and that we humans are just descendants of the worm via the sperm, you will then start to comprehend these worm revelations that I have been revealing to you over the last couple of years. After all, this is the Apocalypse. (unveiling)
The current English and Germanic languages, and modern adaptations of the bible are much different from the ancient Hebrew, Greek and Latin versions. The words we speak and see today are different from those of yesteryear. In order to find the secrets of the past, we must search this ancient history and these older languages to find the truth hidden right before our very eyes. As in the case on the symbol of the serpent found all over the world, which I have found is really the symbolic exoteric representation of the worm.
This is why the father of the modern evolution theory, Charles Darwin who had studied worms for 39 years had concluded: “It may be doubted whether there are many other animals which have played so important a part in the history of the world as these lowly organised creatures.” The Greek philosopher and scientist, Aristotle had said that the first men came out of the earth in the form of worms; and the Ancient Greek pre-Socratic philosopher, Democritus spoke of a certain worm which take the human figure.
The symbolical worship of the serpent was widespread amongst the primitive nations of the earth. In almost all Germanic (Teutonic) languages found in the Northern countries, the meaning of the word worm signifies “serpent and/or dragon.” Meaning when they symbolize or write about a serpent or a dragon in mythology and history, they are really talking about a worm. Also in the word serpent, we find the connections to the word servant.
In Gnosticism, the serpent represents eternity of the soul, and “the Masters of Wisdom, and that all Initiates into the Sacred Mysteries, are called Nagas, or Serpents of Wisdom.” ( Helena Blavatsky) Alexander the Great, before he had become the son of Jupiter Ammon in the Siwa Oasis, was said to be the son of a serpent. Augustus Caesar’s mother Atia in legend had Augustus from a serpent, and Scipio Africanus was said that he believed he was the son of a snake.
In Egypt, Greece, Western, American and other Oriental countries, the serpent was normally associated as the symbol of royalty and monarchy. The Egyptian Pharaohs wore a headdress with a serpent in the form of a cobra, and it was embroidered on the robes of princes to signify their race and rule of alchemy in which the wound inflicted by serpent (worm) was incurable. This symbol of regal power was called the mekkah (from malak, “to reign”) by the Semitic nations, and we find the same meaning in modern-day Mecca which is the center of the Islamic world and the birthplace of both the Prophet Muhammad and the religion he founded.
In the tenth year of his mission, Mohammed told his uncle Abu Taleb, that God had revealed to him his displeasure against the covenant of the Koreish, and had sent a worm to destroy every part of the bond, except that which contained, “ In thy name, 0 God!”
The Greeks had called the serpent (worm) the basiliskos, and the Romans, regulus. Names which all signify “kingly or royal.” The basilisk of the Greeks is of a reddish colour, and its head is a crown. Isidore of Seville defined the basilisk as the king of snakes. The meaning of the name basilisk if from the Greek βασιλίσκος basilískos, “little king,” who is said to be king of serpents and said to have the power to cause death when someone looks into its eyes. Hence, the worm is truly the little king of earth.
The story of the little king worm with the deadly glance can be compared to myth of Medusa with her serpents, or should I say worms coming out of her head. Here is a modern rendition of Medusa who is the singer Rihanna with a tattoo of Isis below her chest.
THE DEVIL IS A WORM
The Devil and the Beast of Revelation is called “the serpent or viper” in the Scriptures, and “worm” was constantly used for “serpent” by many of the ancient Italian writers. In Inferno, Dante calls the Devil “the great worm.” “They shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth,” signifies rather ‘creeping things,’ or ‘ serpents.’ – Micah (vii. 17) In the bible under in Acts, xxviii. 4 and 6, you will find the word worm is used for serpent or viper, in the English Testament of the Geneva version. In the common version it is called ” beast,” and ” venomous beast.” In ver. 3, both translations call it a viper.
The seraph (plural seraphim), or “fiery serpent” is mentioned in Numbers 21. 6-8, Deuteronomy 8. 15, Isaiah 14. 29, and 30. 6. 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. 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 brazen serpent, or should we say worm which was “lifted up by Moses in the wilderness,” is symbolic of the burning or firey serpent (worm), and it became the symbol of our blessed Redeemer, who for our salvation was placed upon the cross, as the worm was elevated in Israel for the preservation of the people.
Hence, the old symbol of the cross with the serpent in reality, is the Redeemer, a worm hanging on a cross.
Later, the worm on the cross would be symbolized by Jesus on a cross who said; “But I am a worm and not a man, scorned by everyone, despised by the people.” – Psalm 22:6
“But I am a worm and no man. How much more is man rottenness, and the son of man a worm ? “First he said, ” Man is rottenness;” and afterwards, “The son of man a worm:” because a worm springs from rottenness, therefore “man is rottenness,” and “the son of man a worm.” – Job 25:6
King Solomon has used a mighty little worm to help him build Solomon’s Temple. In the Hebrew tradition and as it is written in the Torah, we find that ten things were created on the eve of the Sabbath,” and among which is the Shamir. The story relates how Solomon sent his general Benaiah armed with his signet ring of Solomon to the king of demons, Asmodeus, with orders to bring unto him Shamir (the worm).
This Shamir was the most excellent servant, or should we say serpent which we now know is a little worm who had helped Solomon with the stones of the Temple; “there was neither hammer nor axe, nor any tool of iron, heard in the house while it was in building.” (1 Kings vi, 7)
The Freemasons are well-known to honor King Solomon, and it is often said they are builders who are servants (or should I say serpents, meaning worms such as the Hebrew Shamir) that are helping build Solomon’s Temple. This makes perfect Masonic sense. Another clue is passed down to us by the 17th century Master Freemason and Rosicrucian, Thomas Vaughn who wrote under the pseudonym, Brother Eugenius Philalethes; In addressing the most honorable Fraternity of the Freemasons of Great Britain and Ireland, Vaughn wrote: “the mightiest and most haughty princes of the earth are but as worms, and that not so much as we are all sons of the same one Eternal Father.”
It is from the servants of the Temple where we obtain the wisdom of the serpent which we now know is really a “worm” who was used in the construction of the symbolic Temple of Man, AKA Solomon’s Temple. The Sons (worms) of God who had mated with the daughters of earth.
In the end it is said that the Lord will wash away the filth of the women of Zion; he will cleanse the bloodstains from Jerusalem by a spirit of judgment and a spirit of fire. – Isaiah 4:4
