HERE AT LAST is the first eBook edition of my 658-page book, “The Essential Apocalypse – Making Sense of the Book of Revelation”. (Front and rear covers above). You will find the download link for it at the foot of this piece as a free downloadable, fully interactive PDF file. This book was first conceived many years ago, but initially only as an in-depth article. It was finally begun as that article in July 2021. Then it quickly turned into a lengthy essay. Then it rapidly turned into a book — the book that you now see here.
The first draft manuscript was pored-through by proof-readers, two of whom have made comments which now grace the Readers’ Comments on page 4 of the book. They look like this:
You will see there that one of the readers had to adjust to my style, which in this book is informal and conversationally tries to engage with readers at a personal level. I wanted this work to be as jargonless and as free from classic ‘Christian’ clichés as possible. I am not ‘preaching to the choir’ but to the world. I have wanted to make the Book of Revelation as transparent as possible to anyone interested in it. And there is much interest in that Book today, mainly through certain elements which have caught the imagination of those who are interested in the many conspiracies which abound in this world, such as the number 666, the ‘mark of the beast’, the four horsemen, the “two witnesses”, and the so-called Millennium. So much baloney has been spoken and written about those elements that I wanted to set the record straight. I am not part of any sectarian belief system (e.g. dispensationalism) and have endeavoured to bring an objective, rational analysis to the text which is compelling in its presentation of what I believe to be the truth and heart of the text.
The Book of Revelation is not a mere florid analysis of the so-called Endtimes. It has been relevant throughout the entire age — from the ascension of Christ to His return, which period is the main focus of that Book. For it seeks to reveal what has been God’s plan of the ages in having what Satan usurped once more “become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ”. It is the revelation of how Christ has uniquely forged that restoration, which we see through His opening of the scroll with its seven seals, which open out into the seven trumpets, which open out into the seven bowls of Divine fury. I hope that I have conveyed that revelation in all its glory.
There are serious warnings in the Book of Revelation to anyone who adds to the text or who takes away from it. I can assure you that these warnings have continually been in the forefront of my mind as I wrote. Now, after having just gone through the book once more with a fine toothcomb, I am satisfied with the contents and it is being made publicly available. (If any readers have an earlier (therefore incomplete) draft of the book in their possession, please could you delete it now). After a few months of the book being available in eBook format (during which time any corrections could be made if suggestions are received), it could be made into a physical, printed book if funds can be raised. I present it to you now (in the link below to version v.1.4) as an encouragement and it comes to you with all my love. 💝

THIS MORNING I FEEL MOTIVATED to create what I’ve somewhat pretentiously entitled the ‘State of the Word Address 2022’. It was going to be a video of me as a talking head at my desk. But I thought if I put out the transcript of my talk as a little article, it would be better than exposing my ugly mug to the world, as people can reread sentences rather than having to keep going with the flow of a video recording. So here we go…Read the rest of this entry »
Hi there! If you are subscribed here on The Naked Troubadour but not to my new blog for investigative and spiritual articles, then from now on you will only see my poetry and music. If that’s okay with you, then fine, I’m glad you’re here. But I recently started another blog dedicated solely to my articles and they will not appear here any more. So, if you are interested in them, you need to subscribe to my new blog, the “Diakrisis Project“. If you click on that name you will be taken there. You can be subscribed to both and then you will have access to all my published material. A number of new articles are on my Diakrisis Project blog. “The Beast Rising Out of the Sea”, and “The Beast Rising Out of the Earth” (both of those are excerpts from my upcoming book on the Book of Revelation), “The Fathering of Lies – Ethical Philosophy for Dummies”, “Why ‘Saving the Planet’ is the Ultimate in Human Arrogance”, “Transhumanism, Posthumans, & the Need for Authentic Leadership”, and more than 300 other items. So go to the Diakrisis Project blog now and subscribe. I look forward to seeing you there!
FROM NOW ON, all my spiritual and investigative writings will be placed on my new Diakrisis Project blog and NOT on the Naked Troubadour blog, which is now reserved solely for my poetry and music. So, if you want to continue to receive notifications about my spiritual and investigative articles, essays and reflections, you will need to go to https://diakrisis-project.com and subscribe there. I have no way of carrying over the many subscribers on the Naked Troubadour to the new blog, so you will have to do it yourself. Remember… only my poetry and music on The Naked Troubadour blog, while my spiritual and investigative articles will be on The Diakrisis Project blog. There are already many new pieces on there which you are missing out on. So please go there now and subscribe. Thank you and see you there!
EVERY YEAR, AS THE 11TH DAY OF NOVEMBER APPROACHES, I feel a strange enshrouding pall descend (or is it a‑scend from the pit of hell) upon my mind and soul, and poetry begins to form inside my heart — a kind of tribute to the role of all the Wilfred Owens of this world who barely lived yet left their art in verbal gemstones twinkling in the blood and mud and dirt. This year, that poem (a war poem, as it’s called) has even now begun to weave its spell inside my pen — ‘The Trenches of Our Time’, this time it’s called. I’ll publish it this many days from now (that’s ten), no matter if it’s fully formed — a grim gestation’s bloody foetus skin and bones, though few will grab the rusty old defibrillator hanging on the wall (for out of primal swamps most folks won’t crawl).Read the rest of this entry »
WHAT IS MOST LACKING IN SOCIETY in the 21st century? *LOGIC*. If the majority of people had not been so dumbed-down that they cannot think logically, governments would not have been able to pull off the stunt which they have throughout the past 17 months. Frankly, sharing a world with so many who are unable to apply logic means feeling not only like a complete alien on one’s own planet but also as if one is imprisoned in a medieval lunatic asylum!Read the rest of this entry »
A COMMON SAYING that I see around the internet is, “You will know the truth and the truth will set you free”, or more often, “The truth will set you free”. Often it is quoted, for example, in relation to knowing the truth about 9/11 or some other conspiratorial event. It is even engraved on the wall of the lobby in the CIA’s Langley headquarters (as in the attached image) — ironically one of the most duplicitous, mendacious organisations in the world! Almost every time I see this quotation, it has been taken out of context and used in relation to something completely different from the intention present when it was originally written. If there really is such a thing as the truth which will set a person free, it is surely most important to know what it is, as you will no doubt agree. So I thought that today I would uncover precisely what that truth is. Then no one will have any excuse for making any further false claims about it. (Though they probably will anyway!). Here it is…Read the rest of this entry »
‘WOKE’ IS A JOKE (and it’s a religion)! You know how it goes: You invite a ‘woke’ friend to your house and they spend their whole time checking your lifestyle. First, they chastise you bitterly for using paper kitchen towels (which they spotted in one of the drawers they went through the moment they first arrived). Then, when they use your bathroom, they come out shocked that you use toilet paper which hasn’t been recycled a sufficient number of times and they checked out all the “utterly harmful ingredients” in your toilet cleaner and tell you that you are completely destroying the environment and how irresponsible you are and the planet doesn’t have much time left because of people like you.Read the rest of this entry »
FAKEBOOK FACTCHECKERS wouldn’t know a fact from a fart (well, they pretend they don’t, because they do not want you have any facts). Here’s how it works: Fakebook tells you that you have contravened their community guidelines (it isn’t really a community, but nevermind) and there is a bubble saying that your information has already been checked by factcheckers and found to be false. You go and look at the article in which what you have posted is said to be false. There you read something like this:Read the rest of this entry »
[TODAY, the Diakrisis Project is privileged to conduct an exclusive interview with Truth, who, as you will be aware, is very difficult to pin down in this world. It is one of the most extraordinary interviews we have ever conducted. So, without further introduction, below is a transcript of the interview]Read the rest of this entry »
