22 chapters in the biblical book of Revelations. 22 cards in the tarot major arcana. Allow me the opportunity to set the records straight, secular spirituality is my “religion,” based on the syncretism of mythology, narratology, linguistics, psychology, phenomenology and semiotics. Thus is the foundation of my personal philosophy. These are my words, my thoughts, my selfish self-centred version of the truth of divinity.
I have split this chapter into 2 parts. Here are the first 4 bowels, the last 3 will be drained in the next installment.
Chapter 16 – A whole text cleaved in 2
7 bowls for columbine, the emptying of chamber pots onto the plebs.
Pour your heart out, child. Don’t hold back your inner pain. Through the release of your own inner torment (use your words to express yourself, not oppress anyone else), this allows you to heal others as well as yourself. Brace yourself, the bawling bowels of the heavens will be emptied out onto the earth. I wonder if they’re doing renovations or something. Having their own industry type of revolution.
1 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go, pour out the seven bowls of God’s wrath on the earth.”
2 The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly, festering sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.
Bowl 1 – Contamination, disease. Legions of lesions. Biochemical warfare. A skin infection. The skin is the body’s first layer of protection to prevent harmful microbes and bacteria from infecting the body. But I guess it finally got under their skin.
3 The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died.
Bowl 2 – Red tide, algae bloom. As seen in Florida 2018. Mother Earth is raising a new generation earth goddess, and I think she’s blooming. Someone got her period, or is preparing for a violent organism rejection (we are the parasite that must be flushed and eradicated).
4 The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.
Bowl 3 – Like the plague from the bible, the river Nile was turned to blood in Exodus. They’ve poisoned the water lines. Probably because the River Euphrates is dry, stagnant and diseased.
5 Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say:
“You are just in these judgments, O Holy One,
you who are and who were;
6 for they have shed the blood of your holy people and your prophets,
and you have given them blood to drink as they deserve.”
I think someone is being passive aggressive; my husband has been known to call it “malicious compliance.” I don’t know for sure, but good ol’ Babs is totes the true queen of double speak. But something sure feels funky about that interjection.
7 And I heard the altar respond:
“Yes, Lord God Almighty,
true and just are your judgments.”
*face palm* sycophants! That’s one good damned example of rote learning and branded enlightenment, if I’ve ever seen it. Or maybe they’re just super jaded, and feel tired of all the brown nosing. Will somebody please get those guys a snorkel and a towel?!
8 The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire. 9 They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him.
Bowl 4 – The atmosphere is fucked. Green-house effect? Climate change, global warming. FIRE FIRE, FIRE FIRE, SINGING HOT OUT HOWZAT! Burn it to the ground!
Honestly, the dude who has taken over this turn of the wheel has got some major rage issues. This seems like the work of a petulant and moody teenager. Like offering a drink of water to the thirsty, only to pull it back and make them beg for it. And still denying them anything. The dude on that throne is more of a tyrant… Do the good deeds when on earth, but ascend the throne and the dictator emerges? This is the “nice guy” he wanted you to believe him to be. HAHAHA.
I’m a walking cliché to say that I prefer bad boys and the bad boys like me. But really, they’re super nice. I find nice guys to be broken, or self-deluded hypocrites.
I made a page for all my Revelation installments. The list at the end of these posts was getting pretty long to tack on to the end of every one of them.k
