Hermes: One snake vs Two snakes and the Bible
Updated: Apr 27, 2022
In America the symbol for medicine was perhaps chosen incorrectly or chosen to promote the true motive? I actually learned about this from a family member. In passing the family member mentioned America chose the wrong snake symbol. I started to do some digging and found even Drs wrote about this.
Here is the medical journal records:
The origin of One snake on the rod comes from the pagan Greek god Asklepios (pictured below) . I am no expert on pagan gods but the research is readily available. The text below came from this site: https://www.theoi.com/Ouranios/Asklepios.html
ASKLEPIOS (Asclepius) was the god of medicine. He was also the patron god, and reputed ancestor, of the Asklepiades (Asclepiades), the ancient guild of doctors.
Asklepios was the son of Apollon and the Trikkaian (Triccaean) princess Koronis (Coronis). His mother died in labour and when she was laid out on the pyre, Apollon cut the unborn child from her womb. From this Asklepios received his name which means "to cut open." Asklepios was raised by the centaur Kheiron (Chiron) who instructed him in the art of medicine. He grew so skilled in the craft that he was able to restore the dead to life. This was a crime against the natural order and so Zeus (also known as baal: https://watchjerusalem.co.il/1189-zeus-baal-and-a-rare-bronze-bull-idol-discovered-in-greece) destroyed him with a thunderbolt.
I will at a later date delve more into Zesus and baal. Again limited pagan god knowledge.
Lots of coincides there with Apollon (like Apollo moon mission?) , Koronis or Coronis (so similar to Corona Virus) and finally destruction by Zesus (aka baal).... Quite odd but I am sure all just similarities.
Two snakes: Hermes (like the scarfs and Birkin) carried the staff called Caduceus. Roman Name for Hermes was Mercury....
Copied from this website: https://www.theoi.com/Olympios/Hermes.html
HERMES was the Olympian god of herds and flocks, travellers and hospitality, roads and trade, thievery and cunning, heralds and diplomacy, language and writing, athletic contests and gymnasiums, astronomy and astrology. He was the herald and personal messenger of Zeus, King of the Gods, and also the guide of the dead who led souls down into the underworld.
Caduceus the staff from this source: http://symboldictionary.net/?p=1131
symbol, a winged staff entwined by twin serpents called a caduceus, has been nearly universal, found in Egypt, Mesopotamia, and India, where it is a symbol of harmony and balance.
The symbol may have originally been a symbol of the sovereignty of the Goddess Tanit, and has been used as an emblem of the goddess Ishtar and the Sumerian creator god Enki.
In the occult world : https://occult-world.com/caduceus/ This is copied from that site.
The association of the caduceus with gold and the powers of transmutation made it a symbol of the philosopher’s stone in alchemy. In alchemy, the entwined serpents take on the additional symbolism of masculine and feminine forces, which must be in balance for transmutation to occur.
The caduceus appears in Mesopotamian cultures in about 2600 b.c.e. where its serpents signified a god who cured illness. (See where they took this from the BIBLE) The association of the caduceus with medicine and health was passed from the Middle East to the Greek culture. Asklepios, the Greek god who heals in dreams, possesses a staff entwined by a single serpent.
In ancient India, the caduceus appeared in temples as a symbol of the four elements: the wand (earth), the serpents (fire and water), and the wings (air).
In Yoga, the caduceus represents the transformation of spiritual consciousness through the vehicles of the body’s pranic energy system. The wand is the spine, and the serpents are the kundalini force, or serpent power, which resides in the earth and at the base of the spine. When stimulated either through spiritual study or sometimes emotional shock, the kundalini entwines up the spine and flowers with wings at the top of the head. The wings signify the rise of the consciousness through higher planes of awareness.
In freemasonry, the caduceus represents the harmony and balance between negative and positive forces, the fixed and the volatile, the continuity of life and the decay of life.
Quite odd we chose the god of trade, sorcery and transmutation also known as Mercury who happened to be the messenger for Zesus (aka baal) who also so happens to be the guide of the dead who led souls down into the underworld to be our symbol for MEDICINE.
An egregious whoopsiedoodle branding our American medical system with this pagan commerce sorcery symbol implemented by the Army. Per this reference: https://www.jstor.org/stable/44442837 it was used in 1818 by the Medical Department of the Army.
WIKI: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caduceus_as_a_symbol_of_medicine states this happened around 1902 by the Us Army Medical Corps. Wiki did site this helpful background article: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1941059/?page=1 (screen shot below)
For those interested the President during 1902 era was William McKinley (assassinated by Leon Czolgosz in the Temple of Music) and replaced by Theodore Roosevelt .
Again I am no theologian or greek god expert just a curious pharmacist.
The family member with the tip remembered the wrong snake chosen from a Chuck Missler Bible study: https://www.khouse.org/articles/2006/644/print/ copied some of the text below:
The Bible: Moses and Israelites
The Strange Remedy
During the wilderness wanderings, on one of the many occasions that the children of Israel were murmuring against Gods provision, God sent deadly serpents as a judgment. (Sounding prophetic??? ) In response to Moses prayer for the people, God instructed Moses to set up a bronze serpent on a pole, and everyone who looked upon it would live.5
A strange remedy. Why did God employ this peculiar method to provide for their healing and restoration? Prophecy is (strategic) pattern, not simply (tactical) predictions. It would be Jesus Himself who would explain this strange remedy during that evening visit of Nicodemus:
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. - John 3:14, 15
In fact, this would occasion the most well-known verse in the Bible:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. - John 3:16
There are many graphic allusions to the Messiah in the Old Testament, and each one is singularly instructive.6 There were two occasions that Jesus was ''the rock'' that provided the living water.7 The first time Moses was instructed to smite the rock and it provided the needed water.8 The second time Moses didnt follow directions, and as a result he was denied entrance into the Promised Land!9 (If he had followed his instructions, these two occasions would have profiled the two comings of the Messiah!)
A ''Type'' of Christ
This emblem - a brass serpent raised on a pole - is distinctive in that the Lord Jesus Christ personally applied it to Himself. The more you examine it, the stranger it appears: brass was the Levitical symbol of judgment; brass was the metal that was associated with fire (as the brazen altar, etc.). The serpent was symbolic of sin, introduced in the Garden of Eden. This is a strange emblem, indeed, for the Savior of mankind:
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. - 2 Corinthians 5:21
And this is precisely what we celebrate during the Passover Season: His being raised up in our stead. Unfathomable. We may spend an eternity attempting to embrace the implications of this precious truth, and what it cost Him to purchase our eligibility to be in His presence.
[Our two briefing packs, The Agony of Love, and From Here to Eternity, attempt to probe some of the implications that we celebrate this season; and, The Romance of Redemption helps us understand Jesus role as our kinsman-redeemer. (Click the links for more infoatour online store.)]
A Symbol of Healing
This incident during Israels wilderness wanderings led to the Greek legends of Aesculapius, the god of healing, who was symbolized as a brass serpent on a pole, or cross. (It is amusing to notice that many medical professionals have adopted the caduceus, which includes two serpents entwined on a staff. What makes this amusing is that this was actually the symbol for Hermes, the god of commerce!)
So the greeks adulterated the true meaning of the snake being Jesus . Then created 2 gods from the story; one to represent commerce and the guide to underworld and the other meaning healing. Very interesting.....
More concerning is pharmakeia is mentioned in the Bible https://www.calledoutbelievers.org/pharmakeia-and-bio-pharma/
Copied from Site:
The Greek word pharmakeia is used in Galatians 5:19… The Greek dictionary defines it as: “witchcraft, magic, the use of spells and potions of magic, often involving drugs–a magic spell. It is a fact that witchcraft and magic in the Greek world often involved the use of drugs–either by the witch or the one on whom the magic is worked.
Revelation chapter 18 gives a description of the fall of Babylon and in verse 23 it gives us the reason why all nations were deceived. This may be shocking for many people. Let’s read what the Bible says. Referring to the fall of Babylon Revelation 18:23 says “And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”
By the “sorceries” of Babylon all nations were deceived. The Greek word for “sorceries” in verse 23 is “pharmakeia” [far-mak-i’-ah]! According to the Thayer Greek Dictionary “pharmakeia” is “the use or administering of drugs; poisoning; and sorcery, magical arts, often found in connection with idolatry and fostered by it.” If you put the original Greek word “pharmakeia” in place of the English word “sorceries” the end of verse 23 would say, “For by thy pharmakeia were ALL nations deceived”! “Pharmakeia” is where we get our English word “pharmacy”! Pharmacy is a well organized and professionalized system that administers poisonous drugs.
Subliminal Programming in the Media:
TIME MAGAZINE 1999: I guess its reassuring they went with one snake??? If this isn't subliminal messaging I don't know what is.... I am also sure 1999 (where 9 has been used as the symbol for 6) is also just a coincidence. Snake genetics is the best way to sum up the picture below.
