Pagan evidence of the ancient ‘medical’ caduceus symbol.
Revelation contains numerous references to Babylon the great. The most detailed description of Babylon is found in Revelation 18 which is a promise that this evil, persecuting power will at last be overthrown. This chapter also explains precisely why Yahuwah will utterly destroy Babylon at last:
And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all . . . for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. (Revelation 18:21, 23, KJV)
The conflict between good and evil is a spiritual battle, fought primarily on the battlefield of religion. For this reason, many Christians have dismissed the above warning as not applicable to themselves. They assume that only pagans and heathens can be deceived by sorcery. Thus, they reject as unimportant one of Scripture’s most solemn warnings.
However, the entire reason Heaven destroys Babylon “with violence” is because she deceived all nations by her “sorceries.” The word “sorceries” comes from the Greek work φαρμακεία, φάρμακον (pharmakeia).
This is the same root word from which are derived the English words pharmacy (drug store) and pharmaceuticals (medicinal drugs). In ancient times, the practice of medicine was closely entwined with witchcraft, the use of drugs to induce hallucinations and incantations to demon-gods. Scripture declares that the use of drugs is still being used by Satan today to deceive souls or, as the Knox Bible puts it: “thy sorceries bewitched the world.”
The modern symbol of medicine is the caduceus, or two serpents entwined around a winged staff. This was originally the symbol of Hermes, the god of commerce and inventor of magical incantations who, by the seventh century, became closely associated with alchemy. It is derived from the Greek karykeion which is itself based on eruko which means to restrain or control. The original symbol for medicine was actually the rod of Asclepius around which a single snake wound. People would flock for healing to temples dedicated to Asclepius, the god of healing. Sacrifices to the god would be offered and any dreams or visions experienced by the patient would be used by the priest/doctor to proscribe a course of treatment.
The symbol of the snake reaches back further still to Eden where Satan called Yahuwah a liar when he told Eve that she would not die if she sinned. The serpent is a fitting symbol of Satan by whose temptations the entire world has been beguiled into sin. (See Revelation 12:9 and Revelation 20:2.)

Pagan evidence of the ancient ‘medical’ rod of Asclepius symbol.
Yahuwah has health laws which, if violated, will lead to premature death. Unfortunately, the vast majority of modern medicines have serious side effects which can and has led to the premature death of many. The beguiling serpent as a symbol of modern medicine is very appropriate. Paganism/Satanism is still entwined in many modern healing practices. Most modern medicine is nothing more than contemporary witchcraft, garbed in a scientific disguise. Multitudes today are still controlled by the rod of Asclepius, their once-sharp brains dumbed down by side-effects of the very drugs that are supposed to heal them.
The Rod of Asclepius.
The Hippocratic oath, in various forms, is still taken by doctors to this day. “The Oath of Hippocrates has remained in Western civilization as an expression of ideal conduct for the physician.” (American Medical Association, Code of Medical Ethics, 1996 ed.) What many people do not realize, however, is that the original Hippocratic oath began with a call to pagan/demonic deities: “I swear by Apollo the Physician and by Asclepius and by Hygieia and Panacea and by all the gods to bring the following oath to fulfillment.”
In the battle for the soul, Satan has pulled a sneak attack by the use of drugs in modern medicine. People today scorn the use of laudanum (opium in wine) used hundreds of years ago as medicine, but the majority of modern drugs is even more hazardous with dangerous side-effects which must themselves be treated. This creates a self-perpetrating cycle, creating an ever more heavily drugged populace, dependent on the very drugs making them sick.
Autism is a tragic example of the devastation caused by modern immunizations which “requires” the use of still more drugs to control the symptoms associated with autism. Among the general immunized populace, autism in the United States appears once in every 50 people. Among those who have never been vaccinated, however, autism appears only once in every 25,000 cases.
The Doctors, a television show which brings together various medical experts, is touted as being “your go-to for information on the latest medical breakthroughs, cutting-edge practices and procedures and newest information about maintaining a healthy lifestyle.”1 On a recent episode, one of the doctors interviewed admitted that the vast majority of what doctors treat is nothing more than side effects from other medicines previously taken.
The pharmaceutical drug industry is a dirty business, but it is Big Business. Literally billions of dollars are spent every year in both the sale of drugs and in the latest “research” to find the newest miracle cure. Yahuwah has promised to reveal all truth to those who will seek Him. “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32, NKJV)
Recent court action has revealed some of the unethical ways “Big Pharma” beguiles multitudes into trusting that the drugs they produce will provide health. The following list is just a few of the methods used by drug companies to influence people to use their “medicines.” Pharmaceutical companies have either been proven to or been accused in court of:
- Routinely bribing doctors with luxury vacations and paid speaking appointments
- Fabricating drug safety data and lying to the Food and Drug Administration
- Defrauding tax payers out of billions of dollars
- Deceiving regulators about the effectiveness of its drugs
- Relying on its deceptive practices to earn billions of dollars selling potentially dangerous drugs to unsuspecting consumers and medical patients
- Falsifying test data to fabricate a vaccine efficacy rate of 95 percent or higher.
- Spiking blood tests with animal antibodies in order to artificially inflate the appearance of immune system antibodies.
- Pressuring virologists to participate in the fraud and subsequent cover-ups
- Intimidating scientists, threatening them with going to jail unless they stayed silent about the true test results of various drugs
- Entering arrangements with pharmacy benefit managers to force retailers to buy more of their drug2
Although the vast majority of pharmaceutical companies are headquartered in first world countries, the dangers of this deceptive enterprise should be clearly understood by all as various first world organizations “charitably” offer free vaccines to poorer, third world countries. There is mounting evidence to indicate that often vaccines, pills and even topical ointments have been designed to harm the body in certain ways even while relieving other symptoms. Various researchers have claimed3 that the AIDS virus that has decimated parts of Africa and the homosexual population of San Francisco in the United States was released through Hepatitis-B vaccines.
Other evidence suggests that sterilization drugs have been inserted in some birth control pills in addition to the more openly acknowledged side effects of, among other things, heart attack, stroke, embolism, tumors, various cancers and even blood clots in the heart and brain. This author, upon reading the package insert for a topical ointment prescribed for a baby, was shocked to discover that one of the possible “side-effects” was chicken pox!
Big Pharma is a multi-billion dollar industry controlled by powerful “merchants of the earth.” The money raised annually for “cancer research” alone is in the millions of dollars – even though the cure has already been found! In 1931, Otto H. Warburg won the Nobel Peace Prize for a breakthrough understanding in cancer cells. Dr. Tulio Simoncini of Italy, using information discovered by Warburg as well as his own research, had an active practice curing cancer . . . until he was demonized in the press, disbarred from the Italian Medical Order and, eventually, served three years in prison doing the very thing Big Pharma claims to be trying to do – curing cancer.
You cannot trust the claims of the drug industry because it is purely a money-making business to them. Satan is using the sorcery, the magic of modern pharmaceuticals for one purpose and one purpose only: to poison the body which, in turn, beclouds the mind and thus benumbs the conscience. A clear mind capable of hearing the Holy Spirit is vital in the war against sin. The phrase from Revelation 18:23, “for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived,” is rendered by The Heritage Bible as: “. . . because in your spell inducing drugs all the races were led astray.”
The drugs prescribed by doctors the world over and even the so-called “over the counter” medicines that require no prescription, have far-reaching effects, not only on the body, but on the mind as well. Common side effects of many drugs are not just dry mouth and nausea, but fatigue, drowsiness and even short term memory loss. This leaves a person vulnerable to the temptations of Satan. Anecdotal accounts claim that blood transfusions can sometimes lead to profound changes in personality. Yahuwah declared that blood was to be avoided because “the life of the flesh is in the blood.” (See Leviticus 17:10-14.)
Yahuwah is the Creator of all. As such, He has perfect knowledge of the best way to get and maintain health.
For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works, . . .
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret, . . .
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
(Psalm 139:13-16, NKJV)
The Creator of your body knows the best way by which to keep that body healthy. He has designed eight laws which, if followed properly, will aid in restoring and maintaining health:
- Fresh Air
- An Attitude of Gratitude (which brings trust in divine power)
Those who honor Yahuwah by keeping His law, including His laws of health, will in turn be honored by Yahuwah with peace, health and, most importantly, victory in overcoming sin. Yahuwah “saith . . . them that honour me I will honour.” (1 Samuel 2:30, KJV) Those who obey all the laws of Yahuwah will find themselves blessed in unexpected ways. “The fear of Yahuwah is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.” (Proverbs 14:27, KJV)
It is Yahuwah’s will for His people to live lives enriched by good health. This cannot be obtained by the poisonous drugs widely distributed by most modern medical practitioners. Prescription drugs do not heal. They simply control symptoms, frequently at the cost of bringing other harmful side effects. The best way to health is Heaven’s way. Yahuwah has provided cures in nature for every malady. The Internet provides access to a wealth of information previously unavailable. If you have a particular health issue, research online natural remedies that will provide a cure.
Today, determine anew to keep all of Yahuwah’s laws. He will give you grace, wisdom and victory in every area.
