Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.
For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.
For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality.
1 Cor 51:53
Time and again I’ll have an apocalyptic dream.
But when I wake I remind myself that the apocalypse does not mean the end of the world.
It means the revelation.
The lifting of the veil.
The removing of hiding.
And it’s a concept overly intertwined with mysticism.
Lots of people have ‘mystical’ experiences. Not uncommon in ancient history, the Middle Ages, or today.
But what *IS* rare are people who can convey their experience in a meaningful way—where other people can understand and appreciate the significance.
Isaiah did that, Jeremiah did that, Daniel did that. Enoch did, too. Who else?
There are things around us we can’t see. There are things written we can not read.
“He who has ears let them hear…” Jesus said. Well too many us of cannot hear.
We are trapped in the reality construct a system of control gave to us. Our thinking is too limited, which gives us only a partial view of prophecy.
Imagine the apostles seeing an airplane or an iPhone. How would they describe it? What frames of reference would they use?
And when you see something today you don’t understand, how do you describe it? What frames of reference do you use?
Once you realize God created a universe far bigger than we can imagine, with an infinite number of worlds populated with creatures created in his image, you can increase the resolution of the symbols shared in the Bible.
P.S. The illustration is one I did in 2017 after the discovery of Oumuamua.
Scientists have twisted themselves into a pretzel in order to not reveal the obvious to the public.
There are ships and beings of all kinds in our heavens. The church wants you to think ‘extraterrestrial’ or ‘extradimensional’ beings are demons.
Just like the DS wants you to think Trump supporters are “white supremacists. Liars lie to keep you confused.
Consider Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel. Beings not of this world, watchers, protectors, healers, overseers.
They’re not to intervene with our free will unless there is no other choice but to save the world from itself.
