The Fountainhead of Freedom and Joy (essay excerpt)

Posted on Updated on

ONE OF THE CENTRAL PURPOSES of the Book of Revelation is to give a vision of true freedom and genuine joy, which the world can never give, for these do not rely on any external stimuli, but they come from the secure inner knowledge that one has the spiritual “seal” which the Divine being puts on all those who are His disciples. We discussed the symbolism of that “seal” in §2 of the previous main heading, when we looked at chapter 7 of the Book of Revelation where John speaks about the “servants of God” being “sealed in the forehead” — which is the opposite of receiving the symbolic “mark of the beast” in chapter 13, which I dealt with in §4 of the previous main heading. That such a “seal” provides true freedom and genuine joy I will show in the paragraphs below. But first here are some observations and caveats about this freedom and joy.

A ‘Taster’ of my Essay on the Apocalypse

Posted on Updated on

The above image is from the 3rd century ‘Papyrus 47’ manuscript, which shows a fragment of the uncial Greek text of the Book of Revelation with the highlighted letters χ, ξ and Ϛ denoting the old Greek numbers for 600, 60 and 6 (666)

[Below, you will find a little 3-paragraph ‘taster’ of the essay on which I am working, entitled “The Meaning of Apocalypse: A Primer on the Book of Revelation”. I hope that reading it whets your appetite to read more. Already at over 40 paperback pages (15,000+ words), it is turning into a little book which I hope will be on my blog before the end of July]

FROM THE START OF CHAPTER 4, which begin the seven visions which reveal what must come to pass throughout this present age, it is important to remember that from this point onward the subject matter of the Book of Revelation is expressly all about what lies behind these words of the Christ which He spoke shortly before his crucifixion: “Now is the judgement of this world. Now the ruler of this world will be cast out” (Gospel of John, chapter 12, verse 31). This is one of the pivotal verses in the whole Bible. The Greek word translated as “ruler” there is ἄρχων, archon, meaning chief or overlord. Through deception and lies, the fallen archangel Satan (for that is the ‘archon’ to whom these words refer) had usurped rulership of the cosmos. How that cosmic satanic usurpation had occurred and how it will be utterly overturned by Divine decree is what the Bible is all about from start to finish and that decree is symbolically summed-up in chapter 5 of the Book of Revelation as the scroll with seven seals. The Book of Revelation, as the final book of the Bible, is a summary recapitulation of that satanic usurpation and its overturning, with the supreme accent on the overturning. It is a saga of the triumph of Light in this cosmos through the One who is the sole Source of that Light and the sole Creator of that cosmos!

A Bouquet of Ifs [song video]

Posted on

LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #79: “A Bouquet of ‘Ifs’”. Just completed a couple of days ago, this song takes me back to my folkie roots again, where I love to be. With my 12-string guitar too. It’s a song which, in part, reflects the saying from The Little Prince: “That which is essential is invisible to the eyes”. As one of the lines suggests, we need to go “Beyond the broken boards which blight this theatre’s floor” and “live in truth and screw all else”. It’s time to let go of the “desperate barbs” which we clasp and un-immerse ourselves from the “childish shadowlands” where we choose to dwell. Click to see and listen. Here are the full lyrics:

If I thought that you could take the truth,
I would feed it to your soul.
If I believed that this would be of use
and would fill your aching hole,
I would make a featherbed for you
of dandelions and myrrh.
But you’re too immersed in shadowland
and the child who you once were.

The 3 ‘Departments’ of the Power-Elite

Posted on

THERE ARE THREE ‘departments’ or ‘wings’ in the way that the power-elite (secret global government) imposes its will in the world. The way that the power-elite works in human affairs is like this: The law enforcement, military and security services are responsible for implementing and enforcing the plans of that secret government. Then the politics that people take so seriously is simply the ‘entertainment division’ of the secret global government which really runs your country, providing entertainment for the masses, so that they imagine they are participating in some kind of ‘democratic’ choice of government. Alongside of this, the mainstream media is the ‘propaganda division’ of the secret government.

The Meaning of ‘Apocalypse’

Posted on Updated on

MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE that if only someone would put a black-ops special forces militia team together and ‘take out’ all the world’s leaders and the various billionaires who they think wield power (you know who I mean), then the fate of this civilisation could be turned around. One wonders what planet they think they are living on. So many just do not have a clue what they are dealing with here. I have actually seen people discussing that on social media — even joking about dropping a 💣 on the G7 summit! That would certainly be useless as all the clowns attending such a charade are merely fronting a crude theatre to make you think they are doing something to better the world, when all they are really doing is preserving the corrupt status quo of wealth and power and arranging for the enactment of schemes on behalf of the power-elite to grease the wheels for the creation of a one-world government — such schemes as the disingenuous ‘action on climate change’ and ways of more efficiently processing the skammdemmick — all under the dumbest of slogans that I have ever seen, “Build Back Better”. Which teaboy came up with that pathetic piece of scribble? The real meaning of their Orwellian cliché is “Tear Down More Efficiently”, as I will show below throughout this essay.

I Am a Free Spirit!

Posted on

I AM A FREE SPIRIT.  I am not this way because my freedom’s more important than another’s rights or because I think I’m so important that my own delight outstrips the needs of every other soul. For freedom never is a way to get the things one wants but is simply to be wholly who one truly is, without the mask or any other clothing surplus to that role. Therefore, one cannot aim to be a spirit who is free or reinvent oneself as one. The only way to be thus free is to be unburdened from encumbrances which are your inadvertent life-experience legacy. By which I mean all sense of victimhood — of using lack of something in your past to try and claw it back today (without you even realising how that process works within the theatre of your life, your petit [petty] cabaret). By which I mean your own non-stop defensiveness which you invented to protect you (so you think) from anything which threatens your imagined deity (though your defensiveness will morph into offensiveness when you are in the presence of a spirit you suspect of being free). Unless you find a way to realise a mask of clay is glued upon your face, and engrams writ in uppercase incarcerate your heart, you’ll never find the grace of freedom’s spirit in your space; for that is where free spirit’s wholeness starts.

If You Find Someone…

Posted on

IF YOU FIND SOMEONE, be certain that not only is s/he “in your tribe” but also wholly “on your side”. Not slavishly subsumed with you but fervently aligned with all you think and do (and you with him/her too). S/he must be on your side (and you full on theirs too) so s/he will protect you from the sharp inevitable dross (detritus) which will come your way if you and s/he are warriors making waves and causing mayhem too. That’s what you both will do if you are truly counterculture folks who love to rock the boat of regimented mediocrity, ensuring that all lies and darkness do not stay afloat. From time to time, you both may disagree (on so much lesser things than those which are the key to your togetherness). But that will be for both of you a nice excuse for funsome play — for tickling one another’s armpits (that’s a metaphor, by the way), for none of you would ever want to stray far from the golden shores of love, or remove yourselves from mutually-drenchful showers originating streamly from ‘above’.
