The Serpent Chronicles- 5 !!!

                                                                       
The Serpents Chronicles

In Hebrew myth, the Biblical "Nefilim", the "sons of the gods", are called awwim, which means Serpents. Hebrew legends also describe the Eden Serpent as a being who walked and talked like a human. The Hebrew book of ancient oral tradition, the Haggadah, speaks of this Serpent as a creature with two legs that stood upright to the "height of a camel ".
What most people don’t know is that the world for Seraphim is actually derived from the word ‘Seraph’ which means "fiery Serpent”. In fact this biblical worditself is derived form much ancient Sumerian root called, ‘Seru, the name of a Serpent in the Epic of Gilgamesh, and sarpa, a Sanskrit term for the Indian reptilian snake Gods called the Nagas. 
The great ancient Egyptian city of Alexandria was called "City of the Serpent's Son" (Alexander the Great) and there they worshipped the Serpent god, Serapes. He was known as the "Sacred Serpent" or "Fire Serpent". According to one of the Pyramid Texts,G-d Ra had sent forth his eye, and while it was gone, grew a new one. The first eye returned, and was displeased. Ra then transformed her into a snake goddess with fiery capacities:

"
Malachite glitters for me, I live according to my will, for I am Wadjet, Lady of the Devouring Flame, and few approach me
-The Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead, by Carol Andrews, Raymond Faulkner, Page 49

She is Snake goddess Wadjet. She also underwent a metamorphosis. She was then thought to control fate and destiny, apportioning the length of one’s life, becoming either associated or amalgamated with the Greco-Roman goddess Bona Fortuna, the ‘goddess of good luck’. Her popularity as a goddess was so strong that not only did she survive well into Greek religion, by then called Thermouthis , she survived beyond that, becoming a Christian saint, Thermuthis.
Hippolytus, an early Christian "father" and historian, wrote that many of the first Gnostics in North Africa were known as the Naaseni or "Serpents" and they worshipped Nahustan, the golden or brazen Serpent, the image of whom they displayed on wooden crosses. The Naaseni (Nagas) later became known as the Ophites, a Greek term for Serpent. The Greeks said that Serpents were creatures of great knowledge, which spoke through their oracles.
The story is the same in the Americas with the Serpent gods at the heart of the ancient myths and ledgends.The books of the Mayans called Chilam Balaam say the first settlers of the Yucatan in Mexico were the Chanes or "People of the Serpent".(The Return Of The Serpents Of Wisdom, pp. 67 )

They were said to have come across the sea led by a god-figure called Itzamna.Itzamna, the sacred city of the god, therefore, means "the place of the lizard" Itzamna's symbol was the Tau cross,Quetzalcoatl, the most famous Central American "Serpent" god, also carried a Tau cross.


The Hebrew word Nachash is translated to "shine" (like brass) or whisper (as in enchantment). The Nachash was not a literal snake. The Nachash when used literallyin Hebrew would actually mean, a 'Shining Enchanter.' He was also 'shrewd' (smooth or slick), as a descriptive term in the Hebrew for 'naked and cunning' in deceiving Eve.

 Scripture goes on to say that the Nachash was - "above (higher in intelligence) than any living thing 'of the field' that Elohim had made."
CNEPH was considered by the Egyptian priests as "the architect of the universe," For his many services to the people, in teaching them letters, hieroglyphics, astronomy, and morals, TAAUTUS or THOTH was deified after death as "the god of health," or of "healing," and became the prototype of the god ÆSCULAPIUS . He was also identified with HERMES and Mercury.

As "the G-d of healing," THOTH was himself symbolized by the Serpent, which he had taught the Egyptians to consider as a general emblem of divinity. The seventh letter of the Egyptian alphabet, called Zeuta, or "life," was sacred to him , and expressed by “A Serpent standing upon his tail” . Hence the name and the form of the corresponding letter in the English and Grecian alphabet came out to be ‘Ζ’ and ‘ ζ’.

SATURN  was denoted by the lunar emblem, surmounted by the Taautic cross.




JUPITER, by the lunar emblem, surmounting the Taautic.



MARS, by its combination with the solar symbol.



VENUS was distinguished by the same combination, but the Taautic cross was below the circle.

MERCURY united all the symbols. This Mercury is nothing but Hellenized version of Egyptian G-d Thoth.
