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 last 3 to be drained in the ways of existence to feed their lustful hunger for wrath.
Chapter 16b – the rest of the halfnut
10 The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was plunged into darkness. People gnawed their tongues in agony 11 and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done.
Bowl 5 – Ignorance, idiocy, stubbornness, probably also power outages. What ever will they do without technology and the internet? Sad, wretched millennials.
I guess someone finally rained on their parade. Gnawing tongues in agony probably alludes to their desperation to know the language of the birds, and being completely unable to manipulate their tongues and throats in that manner, like babies. How can they possibly repent when they are infants and know nothing about anything that they do? Are they really so responsible for their actions when, instead of taking up THE OPPORTUNE TIMING to broach the subject matter, you prefer to smite the shite out of them?
Both sides are the perpetuators of this ongoing war of bitterness. Just have a coffee, go fuck and then smoke a cigarette afterwards. Geez, uptight much. Both of you. Children!
12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East.13 Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 They are demonic spirits that perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.
Bowl 6 – The luminaries (the rising of the sun). Fighting for the light! However, do they mean “the light of god” or “the morning star” (lucifer) or the eastern nations? Boss battle.
Semi-lucid semi-finals. The princess and the frog in her throat are going to negotiate with the nations to unify their resources against the worldwide common enemy. Spirits of the earth represented by amphibious creatures that require moisture in the earth and fresh water in order to breathe.
15 “Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.”
Doomsday preppers are always prepared. Refer to the song Scar uses to amass his audience: be prepared! Because in the middle of the night when many souls are asleep, one is able to utilise the twilight to get up to super-secret and sneaky shenanigans – and perve on people, kidnap or haunt them.
16 Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.
17 The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” 18 Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. 19 The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. 20 Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. 21 From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds, fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.
Bowl 7 – Mutually destructive. Raze to the ground. Level the playing field. Fucked it all, didn’t ya?
Seventh angel has HAARP’D something up in the atmosphere. It’s airborne and there’s no reversing what was done at all now. Climate control and weather manipulation. God is super drunk on his own raqia, he’s tearing down everything he ever made for her. I think he’d rather destroy it himself than have some other smeghead violate the monument they made together…
I tried to tell him he had to deal with his grief, I tried to show him how to find that thingy… The final piece of resistance. He does this to himself every millennial cycle because to come to peace with it is to let her memory go. This is how he shows his love and honour for her.
Hey, tragic backstories don’t change the fact he’s a dick. Just… it reveals the extent of his true nature, and that he is flawed just like us. How the more messed up and confusing and contradictory we are, the more we are like … *points to the snoring figure upon the throne* The empty glass bottle slips from his hand, and smashes upon its way down those stairs. The shards of glass are strewn across the celestial landscape, leaving a streak of glittery twinkling sharps across the milky wake.
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
