The Snake is an extremely questionable subject in faith. We will certainly check out the positive elements of this old symbol. From classical times the Serpent has actually been a symbol for Knowledge (Genesis 3:1 as well as Matthew 10:16). This meaning is shared in Aaron’s rod which represents Divine Wisdom. The Hebrew letter Lamed (which suggests “rod”) is likewise a symbol for Knowledge, Knowledge, as well as Learning, etcetera. All these connotations are synthesized in the account of Aaron’s rod being transformed right into a serpent (Exodus 4:3).
The Hebrew letter Teth suggests “a snake” as well as its numerical worth is 9 (9). 9 is an interesting number because despite the number of times you increase or add it, the response is 9! As an example: 9×3=27. 2 +7=9. 9×9=81. 8 +1=9. 9×11=99. 9 +9=18. 1 +8=9. This could not be finished with any kind of various other number. If we add the 9 solitary number numbers, 1 +2 +3 +4 +5 +6 +7 +8 +9, we obtain 45. Decreasing 45 to a solitary figure by including 4 and 5, we get 9!
One more interesting quality of 9 is that it also swirls know itself, a lot like the snake. I should claim, rather, it is the snake that crinkles like the 9, as it was Pythagoras who claimed, “Id om,” which is, “Things copy numbers.”
The number 9 reminds me of the ouroboros, which is the old sign of a snake consuming its own tail. The ouroboros represents the perpetual and also endless cycle of LIFE:
Generations come and also generations go, but the planet stays forever. The sun increases and the sunlight sets, as well as rushes back to where it rises. The wind strikes to the south, and also turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever before returning on its program. All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never ever complete. To the location the streams come from, there they return once more. (Ecclesiastes 1: 4-7)
The ouroboros additionally signifies life’s clean slate which is installed in its ending, and of its ending which is embedded in its beginning.
The Scriptures liken Christ to the bronze serpent Moses elevated to recover the Israelites when they had actually been affected by fiery serpents in the wilderness (Numbers 21: 8 as well as 9; John 3:14). Words for serpent made use of in the Holy bible is nahash. Nahash has the same gematria as Messiah, which is 358.
Esoterically, the Serpent is a reference to Kundalini. Succinctly, the Kundalini is the procedure of translating the sex-related push into Spiritual forces to achieve Cosmic Awareness.
