Adelphia

So, I’m driving west on I-20 through Alabama and I see a sign for Arkadelphia, which reminds me of Philadelphia. I Google adelphia and get Adelphi is a Greek word meaning “brothers” (a + delphi, literally “of the same womb”).

I Google delphia and got Delphi, a town on the slopes of Mount Parnassus in Greece, was the site of the main temple of Apollo* and of the Delphic oracle, the most famous oracle of ancient times. Before making important decisions, Greeks and other peoples traveled to this sacred place to consult the oracle and learn the gods’ wishes.

According to Greek mythology, Zeus* wanted to locate the exact center of the world. To do this, he released two eagles from opposite ends of the earth. The eagles met at Delphi. Zeus marked the spot with a large, egg-shaped stone called the omphalos, meaning “navel.”

Originally, Delphi was the site of an oracle of the earth goddess Gaia. The site was guarded by a monstrous serpent (or dragon, in some accounts) called Pytho. Apollo killed Pytho and forced Gaia to leave Delphi. Thereafter, the temple at Delphi belonged to Apollo’s oracle.

  1. Watch for The Hidden Truth which is About to be Reviled. The whole land is made desolate because we forsook our GOD and he scattered us and gave our lands to another people. Glade you had a vision.

    • I’m sure you meant “revealed” not “reviled”. And we forsook Mamayah (Earth Mother) so SHE scattered us and gave our lands to another people. I’m glad you are following this blog and posting your comments.
