Grimm Tales of Ole’
Why would I be writing about innocent tales meant for the ears of children? Well, innocent most aren’t and I believe the undercurrent of these stories tell more about the world of the supernatural then we realize.
The Brother’s Grimm stated that their book consists of stories which are precious crumbs of ancient faith, gleaned wheat, made into bread, and that they wished to place it into benevolent hands which have the power to bless, hoping that these “breadcrumbs of poetry” will never come to the attention of those who would withhold them from the poor.
In the rendition of their Snow White surrounded by the kneeling dwarfs, a candle placed on either side of her casket, music changed to solemnly religious, and the slowly paced entry of the prince into what is unmistakably a church atmosphere, does it not occur to anyone that the Germanic elves are out of place amidst the candles and organ music of Christian piety?
When Snow White and the prince leave, hand in hand up the hillside, high above and ahead of the prince and his bride radiant in the sky, shining like a golden city made of sunlight is the castle…but isn’t this likened to heaven?
This isn’t the case in all 210 of their classics, but effective expressions toward the supernatural seems to be a mainstay, to be sure. But, Zaubermarchen, “magic fairy tales” are definitely an issue we need to address with more ‘light’.
Although many of the stories are violent and not all are religiously inspired nor inspiring, it needs to be noted that this is a perfect picture of the true world itself with its master at the helm. Chaos is Satan’s favorite past time and the supernatural is not always pure and innocent, and Satan surely reveals this fact. But, if you read the Bible with discernment, one also is faced with murder, accounts of cannibalism in besieged cities, royal adultery and let’s not forget the occasional mockery of GOD. Of course, this is a repetitive picture that GOD wants us to see then, and now. Wake up!
Although the Grimms were evidently not theologians, the entry in the seventh volume of their Germanic dictionary covering Glube (faith, belief) extends from page 7777-7847!
A great quote is, “hluttro habas thu an thinan herron gilobon”… “You should have transparent trust in your Lord”. And another… “The devils hear and know all the same things and it does them no good, because they are not moved”.
And the same goes for the reader, Wilhelm practically as much when he wrote the reason for telling fairy tales…to awaken the thoughts and feelings of the heart.
But, all is not on the up and up…we also must note that the pagan-Christian compositional style is also woven throughout some of their tales. In his revised fairy tales, Wilhelm has the dove play the role of its transcendent identity as the divine spirit of love in Hansel and Gretal, and also in Cinderella. The dove in Parzival is ubiquitous as it is the insignia of the Knights of the Holy Grail. I find this curious.
So, we have a mixture of paganism and Christianity which is par for the course in the days of ole. I must admit, we see this even now. Saturated mixtures of religiously false doctrine shaved into the legends of antiquity which tilts the reader into re-accessing their beliefs and isn’t this the agenda of Satan!
In the Brother Grimm’s story “The Seven Ravens” seven brothers disappear and become ravens and their sister enters life. Water is to be fetched from the well in a jug for the girl’s baptism, n the loss of the jug is a fateful event which sets the stage for the story. Is it possible to view the seven brothers as representing that which had to disappear for Christianity to come into being. If so, they represent the pre-Christian, pagan world in which the seven planets stood for the sky gods of antiquity.
With Wilhelm’s gleaning of bits of old Germanic faiths, Norse mythology, Roman and Greek mythology and then the Bible stories he reshaped…this is a perfect example of the world in the grasp of Satan and his tricks.
I believe this is not different from the television programs which children view today tainted with scenes of witches, fairies, vampires, and others monsters which they are told are just made-up fairy tales.
The supernatural is powerful. The evil part of the supernatural does work its way into the world we live in, so much so that we hardly see the good with the bad. Making fairy tales just bedtime stories has become a nightly chore on television, but with the exception that they don’t tell the viewer these things are not only possible but they are very real.
Spinning tales was actively viewed as a ritual during bedtime moments, but rarely were the children told, if ever, that these monsters are reflective of the world then and now. The problem is we don’t want to scare our children with the truth, we want to scare them with lies. Age appropriate stories were a given then and now but the belief in these ‘tales’ are of value and reflective inherently in our culture.
Violence and cruelty were to an extent a reflection of medieval cultures and scenes of burning witches injected into fairy tales were common. But the reality of witchcraft as not just an ancient ritual, yet this is what we teach our children. We place them in front of the television with one thing in mind…having some piece of mind. But, what we are doing in subjecting them to witchcraft and the occult. This is what our current venue on television is! Pure occult programming.
With Halloween right around the corner, it’s high time we tell our children what the truth is! It’s high time we wake up to what our children are being taught in fairy tales, and cartoons. And don’t forget the occasional movie we take them too…like Paranorman…for example! Or Monster University. Seemingly trivial plots with lots of laughter but the reality is they are full of occult topics and symbolism.
And let’s not forget what Halloween really is! A ritualistic sacrificial day of summoning devils and evil spirits. Nothing less! In fact, you would be surprised what really takes place behind closed doors. This is why so many children are either poisoned or come up missing. Why do you think so many parents are careful not to let their children out of their sight on this ‘Halloween’ night of Trick or Treat? Because the trick is, your children is the treat!
