Revelation Annotations 01

Think of this as the first chapter. The previous piece as the introduction. Please be respectful. I’m the only one allowed to piss people off. It’s my playful charm, my youthful facade and petite stature that lets me get away with shit. Subterfuge the deluge, I remove the veil of theurge.

Learn from my mistakes: do not as I do, but do as I say.

Metatrope was able to distill the essence of the spirit, which she keeps in a hip flask. She takes a swig of the heady elixir and starts singing and doing a shimmy… Something about being remembered by her… boys? voice? choice? It is unclear and she has already started rambling on about some thing else… Alas, we might never know for what (of who) she was remembered.

Follow Kalliope Veign as she documents this world woe exclusive.

Revelation 1 – John receives visions of Jesus’ revelations.

Predictive and poetic doomsday predilections. Who else is more suited to reveal the revelations than the herald of heaven and hell? I am the angel of death, the guardian of gates, the keeper of keys. I am the meta-alchemist-linguist live in the world’s south-east.

1The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. (Revelation 1:1-2)

That’s just fine, I have my own antichrist manifesto which I wrote myself! I’m also a poet (or pathetic pipsqueak wannabe prophet – prophet of me) and as such I have used plenty of words and symbolic metaphors here before. Revelations are revealed with every emanation and the revolving revolutions.

12 I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned, I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 

Like a son of man, more like a daughter. I am the sun of man, and my tongue is my subtle sword. The double-edged sword refers to the double-meaning that words can have. Just as words can be used to illuminate, they can be used to manipulate and obscure.

14 The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.

My voice so powerful and sublime that it washes over you, you hear me with your soul. Like a babbling brook, rapids rushing, the sound of the wind as it descends and moves across the surface of the seas. Also, I’ve described my feet as exploding,before as they tend to get very hot and uncomfortable due to circulation (and diabetes) problems. I stand in the fires and turn the world’s wheel.

17 When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. 18 I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.

I was dead inside then I was reborn and came to life. I was here before, way back in the beginning. I was the first of my kind of creation. A pleasure to be back and to share my wizened words with the world of you again.

19 “Write, therefore, what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later. 20 The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.

Quick, get this down before you forget. The seven stars represent celestial bodies (2 luminaries and the 5 visible planets). These could be angels, or beacons of light to lead the righteous divine. The seven lampstands are mere placeholders, representative of the inner light one must shine. This can also represent the 7 days of the week.

The Book of Revelation, New International Version.
