The Serpent Mound is one of the most intriguing sites I have ever visited while being on the trail. It is situated in Peebles, Ohio, and is about a three-hour drive from the Newark Earthworks, where we held the Nephilim Mounds Conferences, for several years. The site is located high on a cliff and overlooks a river below.
There is an effigy of a serpent whose body coils and winds its way over the flat terrain, ending with its mouth wide open. It appears to be swallowing an egg directly in front of it. I have a small pamphlet from 1924, given to me by a fellow watchman and it states this about the Serpent Mound;
“The effigy was first described by Squire and Davis, pioneers in American archaeology, in 1848. When these men made their survey and gave to the world the first description of this wonderful earth-work it was then covered with a dense forest and therefore in an excellent state of preservation. Its size, form and outline were well remembered by the older citizens residing in the vicinity, and its later restoration, where its form had been slightly disturbed in many places, was readily and accurately made.”
There have been many people who have posited what the Serpent Mound means, why it was constructed, and of course who went through the trouble to construct it in the first place. Among modern-day archaeologists, there is much debate as to its age. Some put it around 1,000 years old, while others insist it might be 3,000 years old, or perhaps even older.
Recently, the Shoshone Tribe attempted to set the record straight as to who built the serpent effigy, insisting that Native Americans built it, but what proof do they have? We are also told that skeletons were exhumed from large mounds that are around the site, but as usual, the skeletons have gone missing, so we have no idea of how tall the skeletons were, or if they were Native American, or something else entirely.
One line in the 1924 pamphlet tells us that an adult male of six feet in height was removed from the burial mound, which is tall for a Native American, but certainly not something out of the ordinary.
Catalina Island is about 26 miles offshore from the city of Los Angeles, California, out in the Pacific Ocean. My work there has shown that large skeletons were exhumed from the island, just shy of nine feet in height.
My discovery was made in 2014 and published in my book, On the Trail of the Nephilim II. It was further highlighted on the History Channel’s season finale episode of, In Search of the Lost Giants, where I was able to present my findings along with the analysis of the photograph I discovered hidden away in the archives, never to see the light of day!
Chief Joseph Riverwind has stated, to the best of his knowledge, Native American cultures did not create the enormous Great Circle Mound that we see in Newark, Ohio or the Serpent Mound. So if that is true it creates even more of a mystery.
We know from the Bible that around 3,500 years ago, Joshua and Caleb along with the children of Israel began the conquest of Canaan. We know that a mandate was given by God to destroy everyone in the land—men, women, children, and animals; and to burn everything.
The Israelites were to take nothing, no spoil. This is genocide and in fact, this is the exact chapter and verses that evolutionist, Richard Dawkins, uses to promulgate the idea that the God of the Old Testament is a genocidal, homicidal, blood-thirsty, capricious maniac!
He sounds right until we factor in the Nephilim!
We know from the Biblical account that the Nephilim were in the land. The Nephilim were the progeny of fallen angels and the women of Earth. We read about this in Genesis 6, and while this is a controversial passage, I believe it may be the key to understanding Biblical prophecy. In other words— if we don’t understand Genesis 3:15 which tells us emphatically,“Your seed will be at enmity with the seed of the woman. He shall crush your head and you will bruise his heel,” then how are we to come to grips with who the antichrist is? Is he the seed of the serpent?
The quote above is from the Most High God and is directed at the serpent whose seed will be at enmity— war—with the seed of the woman. We know that the seed of the woman eventually becomes Messiah, but what of the seed of the serpent? Has it yet to manifest, or has it already done so?
The answer, of course, is found a few chapters later in Genesis 6, where we read about the Sons of God marrying the daughters of men. This is the eruption of the serpent seed and it manifests in the progeny known as the Nephilim.
The Biblical narrative further states:“The Nephilim were on the earth in those days and also afterwards when the sons of god saw the daughters of men and took wives and went into them.”
This passage while admittedly controversial (it seems many passages are!), seems very straightforward to me. Please remember that Moses is writing this from Mount Sinai, hundreds of years after the flood and the Most High God is telling him what to write. Why wouldn’t he just tell him to write: The Nephilim were on the earth in those days and leave it at that. It seems that God goes out of His way to inform us that this incursion—the sons of god or the fallen angels—would not only be for the Days of Noah but for also afterward.
Later, after the flood, we see the Nephilim in the Promised Land! There were many Nephilim tribes there, the Nephilim, Raphaim, the Emims, the Anakims and so on. I would posit that these names have more meaning than what a casual reading would reveal. For instance, the Anakim, when translated, means The Longnecks. Could these names be denoting certain genetic characteristics?
All of this back-story establishes the point that the Nephilim were in the Promised Land when Joshua and Caleb, with the twelve tribes of Israel, began the conquest. I’ve covered this aspect in detail in On the Trail of the Nephilim.
It is my contention that there was a diaspora from the Levant generally and the Promised Land specifically. In other words a great exodus may have taken place where some of these Nephilim tribes, seeing the annihilation from the hand of Israel being inflicted on other Nephilim tribes, fled northward into what is now Europe, and made their way over to the Americas. If that is the case, then we should see vestiges of this and in my opinion, we do.
There are the Native American oral traditions of giants roaming the land long before the Native Americans arrived. We have numerous newspaper stories published in both the 19th and 20th centuries citing giant skeletons being unearthed from seven feet tall to over 12 feet in height! As you have seen, we have the photographic evidence that I discovered and had analyzed from Catalina Island, which showed the existence of giants just under nine feet. So with all of this in mind let’s return to the Serpent Mound.
I want to focus on one aspect of the Serpent Mound where we see that the serpent seems to have its mouth wide open— it is in the act of swallowing what appears to be an egg.
What were these ancient mound-builders saying by going through the trouble of constructing such an elaborate earthwork? Who supported the workers while they labored to construct this effigy? Is there a message here, hidden in plain sight? Before I go any further I need to give you the back-story as to how I came upon what I believe is startling information.
On September 12th, 2015, we held the Third Annual Nephilim Mounds Conference in Newark, Ohio. I joined Gary Stearman, Russ Dizdar, Chief Joseph & Laralynn Riverwind, and Fritz Zimmerman as we all presented information about the mounds and the Biblical Nephilim.
Amateur archaeologist, Mark H. was in the audience and he listened to Gary Stearman’s presentation entitled, It’s All About the Seed. Later, he had what can only be described as a cosmic download, and was given revelation as to what the Serpent Mound means. I realize that this might sound strange to some folks, so let me explain.
As Spirit-filled believers in Jesus, we have the Spirit of the Living God dwelling in us. He can and will speak to us and He does so in a variety of ways. Sometimes a Scripture will jump off the pages of our Bibles and even though we have read it before it has new meaning and we receive fresh insight from it. Sometimes He can speak through our dreams. Other times it can be a casual conversation with a friend who will say something to us that when we hear it, we immediately realize God has spoken through that person.
There are instances when the Spirit of the Living God will give us insight into something that is profound. I’ve had this several times and have written about it. One time, I was with Richard Shaw in Cusco. We were both hit with what I’ll call a cosmic download. In other words, we were given information that neither of us would have thought about on our own. While this might sound strange to some folks, it is what should be the norm for a believer as we walk in the spirit and the “natural” man—the one not born from above— does not understand nor can participate in any of this. So back to how all of this happened with Mark.
Mark was in the process of hosting an event on the Serpent Mound and perhaps this was the reason he was thinking about it when he attended the Nephilim Mounds III Conference.
Gary was at the lectern and proceeded to discuss the Genesis 3 passage, which says; “and I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed: he shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” I also addressed this briefly in my talk, pointing back to Gary’s presentation that there is a seed war and it is between the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman. We know from this prophetic text that the seed of the woman gave birth to the Messiah, almost 2,000 years ago. This was a game-changer and resulted in the the defeat of the Fallen Cherub, Satan, although the Kingdom of Jesus has not yet manifested. (I think we’re in the birth pains though!)
So with that in mind and looking at the Serpent Mound, is the serpent in the act of swallowing an egg, or birthing the egg? Which is it? What’s going on here? The Serpent depicted in the hundreds of undulating yards of piled earth, which has become known as the Serpent Mound, is in the act of swallowing the egg. It is doing this to prevent the fulfillment of the prophecy in Genesis 3, which states with great specificity that; “the seed of the serpent will be at enmity with the seed of the woman.”
To put it succinctly, could it be that we are looking at the direct result of this ongoing cosmic war in the creation of the Serpent Mound, a direct, in-your-face, statement that the serpent would prevail?
The serpent is swallowing the egg in an attempt to thwart the birth of the one who will crush the serpents head, i.e. the Messiah! Depending on which archaeologist one refers to, the Serpent Mound was constructed almost 3,500 years ago, to use the oldest date, well before the birth of Yeshua, or as most of us know Him, Jesus. The youngest date is around 800 years ago, which of course is still pre-Columbian (before 1492), but we know Native Americans were inhabiting this region at that time.
I would put forth that those who constructed this mound had knowledge far beyond Native American tribes. I’m speaking of the alignment of the solstices and equinoxes and other solar alignments that are part of the Serpent Mound.
It would be good to insert a passage from the Book of Enoch, which is thousands of years old and was found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Book of Enoch is also quoted numerous times in the TANAKH, or the Hebrew Bible. Furthermore, it is referenced in the Christian New Testament.
Chapter 8 of the book of Enoch assigns certain teachings to specific fallen angels.
“1. And Azâzêl taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all colouring tinctures. 2. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. Semjâzâ taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, Armârôs the resolving of enchantments, Barâqîjâl, (taught) astrology, Kôkabêl the constellations, Ezêqêêl the knowledge of the clouds, , and Sariêl the course of the moon. And as men perished, they cried, and their cry went up to heaven . . .”
Is it possible that the builders of the Serpent Mound knew about the prophecy stated in Genesis 3, and this was their answer to it, a blatant defiant statement that the serpent would swallow the egg or seed of the woman and thus prevent the one who would crush his head from being born?
Once we plug this idea—that the site was built by the Nephilim—into the mystery of the Serpent Mound, it provides an answer to the riddle and enigma that has shrouded it for centuries since its discovery.
The Serpent motif is found all over the world. It is, in fact, a global phenomena. Think of Chichen Itza, a site in the Yucatan Peninsula, which has a great pyramid that depicts a serpent undulating and slithering its way down the sides of the pyramid on the equinoxes. Over 50,000 people were ritually sacrificed at this site.
Why the serpent? Why not something else, like a furry rabbit? Why is it that we see the serpent worldwide? Some in the New Age will tell us the serpent denotes wisdom, but where is this wisdom found and who is the source behind it? The serpent is exactly who we think it is, it is none other than the Fallen Cherub, Satan and he can give someone who follows him wisdom, but it comes with a price and that is a person’s soul.
Archaeologists will insist that this effigy was built by Native American peoples called the Adena or if a later date is put forth they will say the Hopewell built the sites. But, the problem remains—whoever built these effigies did not tell us who they were. We do know, however, that numerous large skeletons were found in the mounds in Ohio and elsewhere, which would support the idea of Nephilim tribes being responsible for the construction. I would put forth that the Serpent Mound is what I have coined, Fallen Angel Technology / Nephilim Architecture and that this serpent is trying to swallow the seed of the woman and thus prevent Messiah from manifesting, which ultimately spells his doom!
