The Python and the Scarab

Beloved people of God,
the Holy Spirit revealed during a worship time to an intercessor the attack of the enemy by showing a snake.
In the last few days the Holy Spirit let me look more into the invisible realm of the devil to see the tactic of the enemy, which is of importance for us in the area of spiritual warfare.

The Python

In the last time I see more frequently in my spirit a python, which lies rolled up on the ground and watches merely the people of God. It has been put consciously by the enemy into the place of Christians, who flow in the prophetic river.
I asked the Lord, why this python could be in the place of Christians.
A short time later, I got a thought lightening, which contains the following answer:

“I allow this serpent to check the hearts of my children. This serpent will only infect these people, which have their hearts not aligned on me and only focus on themselves and their own ministry without me.”

What is the meaning of the python?

There are three different words which explain the word python more precisely. These are the following words:

1. Pytho

A) The Greek equivalent of a familiar spirit. B) The demon that possesses a sorcerer or a soothsayer. C) Bond of the authority on the demon spirit in the family line. The source of the power that enables genealogical supernatural operation. See Acts 16:16. (from the Prophet`s Dictionary, Paula A. Price, PH.D.; page 458, Nr. 1221)

2. Python

A) A term that comes from the Greek word puthon. The word was derived from Pythian Oracle at Delphi. For this reason, python is synonymous with divination. A dragon; serpent offspring of Gaia who is the goddess Mother Earth. B) Guardian of the oracles (divinatory prophecies) at Delphi. The serpent who was supposedly slain by Apollo to empower him to excel in divinatory prophetics. (from the Prophet`s Dictionary, Paula A. Price, PH.D.; page 458, Nr. 1222)

3. Pythonic Spirit

Spirit of divination manifested by means of inquiring of a familiar spirit. Often this was done through séance or necromancy. Se Acts 16:16. (from the Prophet`s Dictionary, Paula A. Price, PH.D.; page 459, Nr.1223)

A prophetic warning

In his book “Engaging The Revelatory Realm Of Heaven” writes Paul Keith Davis of a prophetic warning, which should call us as people of God into a holy vigilance.


A Prophetic Warning

With the accompanying increase of authority in godly revelations, there will be corresponding counterfeit anointing released as well. These forged anointing, in large part, will be in people with genuine gifts of revelation who allow their divine communication to be polluted and wrongfully administered.
Baalam would be further example of this form of prophetic presentation (see Numbers 22,8-9).

Numbers 22,8-9:
He said to them, “Spend the night here, and I will bring word back to you as the LORD may speak to me.” And the leaders of Moab stayed with Balaam. Then God came to Balaam and said, “Who are these men with you?”

While the Scriptures clearly advise us to earnestly desire spiritual gifts, it is the spirit within a person using the gifts that is the distinguishing factor. The question must be asked, “Is it our heart to truly build the Kingdom of Heaven or to establish our name and individual ministry?”
Conversely there is a demonically inspired “dark light” that will send deluding influences into the soul of many people with delusions of grandeur. That is why we must continually cleanse ourselves from all that would contaminate and defile both body and spirit (2 Corinthians 7:1).

2 Corinthians 7:1:
Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Delusions of grandeur and spiritual deceptions result in the manipulation of the church body through selfish ambition and self justification. These will utilize control and religious spirits to accomplish a counterfeit agenda and twist God`s Word suit that agenda.

The “dark light”

Under the category of this “dark light” is also divinatory. And in this connection I saw another demonic being in my spirit.
This being was the scarab from the times of ancient Egypt.

The scarab in ancient Egypt

So that we can understand more the connection between the divination and the scarab, it is important to know the meaning of the scarab.

The meaning of the scarab

Several species of the dung beetle, most notably the species Scarabaeus sacer (often referred to as the sacred scarab), enjoyed a sacred status among the ancient Egyptians.
The hieroglyphic image of the beetle represents a trilateral phonetic that Egyptologists transliterate as “xpr” or “hpr” and translate as "to come into being", "to become" or "to transform". The derivative term is variously translated as "form", "transformation", "happening", "mode of being" or "what has come into being", depending on the context. It may have existential, fictional, or ontologic significance.
The scarab was linked to Khepri ("he who has come into being"), the god of the rising sun. The ancients believed that the dung beetle was only male in gender, and reproduced by depositing semen into a dung ball. The supposed self-creation of the beetle resembles that of Khepri, who creates himself out of nothing. Moreover, the dung ball rolled by a dung beetle resembles the sun. Plutarch wrote: “The race of beetles has no female, but all the males eject their sperm into a round pellet of material which they roll up by pushing it from the opposite side, just as the sun seems to turn the heavens in the direction opposite to its own course, which is from west to east.”
The ancient Egyptians believed that Khepri renewed the sun every day before rolling it above the horizon, then carried it through the other world after sunset, only to renew it, again, the next day.
In Egyptian mythology, Khepri (also spelt Khepera, Kheper, Chepri, Khepra) is the name of a major god. Khepri is associated with the dung beetle (kheper), whose behavior of maintaining spherical balls of dung represents the forces which move the sun. Khepri gradually came to be considered as an embodiment of the sun itself, and therefore was a solar deity. To explain where the sun goes at night, such pushing was extended to the underworld, Khepri's pushing of the sun being ceaseless.
Since the scarab beetle lays its eggs in the bodies of various dead animals, including other scarabs, and in dung, from which they emerge having been born, the ancient Egyptians believed that scarab beetles were created from dead matter. Because of this, they also associated the Khepri with rebirth, renewal, and resurrection. Indeed, his name (kheper in Egyptian) means to come into being. As a result of this, when the rival cult of the sun-god Ra gained significance, Khepri was identified as the aspect of Ra which constitutes only the dawning sun (i.e the sun when it comes into being). (partial statement from "Wikipedia" The Free Enzyclopedia)

Therefore the meaning of the scarab, if it appeared in connection with prophetic dreams, visions or contexts is a representation for pride and the devil himself.
He is birthing his children of darkness out of the breeding ground of the iniquity and is feeding them through sin. The devil is playing with his children through the seductive sin, to take them into his full bounding influence.
If he has raised his fruit, he is leading this seduced people to other people to pull these humans also in a deeper spell of the sin.
The dangerous thing is, that the devil is clothing himself with a false robe of "light" to lead as many people as possible astray (2 Corinthians 11:14).

2 Corinthians 11:14:
14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.

Pride and impatience are the most dangerous traps, at the moment!

Due to proud heart attitudes and impatience it is possible for the python of the enemy to wait on the bottom of the ground. This python is waiting to attack at the right point her victims to suffocate them and to infiltrate her divinatory poison.
The presence of the python is merely a stone to fall for these persons, which walk with a wrong heart attitude in the prophetic realm.
Don`t search mainly to serve your neighbor. Therefore search first to love God. Without this love, you will not be able to love in the right way your neighbor.
You have first to be filled up with the Love of the Father (Matthew 22,37-40)!

Matthew 22:37-40:
37 Jesus replied: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'
38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
39 And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.

If you are filled up with the Love of the Father, you will not fill up yourself with the love of your neighbors.

Amen and Amen.
