One of my traditional complaints regarding prophecy is that the very act of indulging in it tends to set things in motion in the minds of those who
hear it, leading them to subconsciously do things that can make such predictions come to pass. This seems to happen even when the listener does not
wish to see the prophecies bear fruit.
Without a doubt the most well-known and engrossing prophecies in history have come from our dear Brother Yonif in the form of the Apocalypse, more
commonly known as the Book of Revelation.
It is indeed this very book from which the expression fire and brimstone seems to get its weight, and nary a bible has been thumped that has not
been accompanied by quotes from this work.
Johns visions of calamity and suffering have been like fantastic fodder in the minds of billions of people, and such tales, by means of their
subconscious influence do, it would seem, have a way of bringing themselves about.
The End Is Near?
It seems like every few years another tiny cult emerges with such encouraging advice as Repent ye sinners! The end is near! All will perish in
flames! Typically led by a self-appointed prophet (grrr!) they set a date for our universal destruction and devise a plan for their
In preparation for the inevitable, they sell their worldly things -- usually giving the proceeds to the prophet for Gods work (ahem) -- and
gather together in a shelter to ride out the End Times.
Inevitably, the appointed Day of Doom arrives, and the poor souls huddle together in terror, squinting their eyes against the impending holocaust.
Time passes and miraculously, nothing happens. Various things ensue, and are never pleasant for anyone concerned.
This has happened so very many times since Johns visions that I pray the reader will understand the importance of learning from the foolishness of
their brothers and sisters.
Again With The Disclaimers!
I have confessed that I am, despite my strong misgivings, indulging in the work of prophets. I can claim Yoshiel as my oracle , but in truth Yoshiel
and I are one and the same of mind, though I devise means for Yoshiel to work outside my consciousness.
Remember that my writings are basically those of a person who has described a system of thought consistent with the symptoms of a psychiatric
disorder. The notion comes to mind that I would indeed have to be insane to write what I am now writing, so please consider that carefully. As the
saying goes, You dont have to be crazy to work here, but it helps!
Furthermore, Yoshiel assures me that they most definitely cannot see the future, but rather are making assumptions and drawing tentative conclusions
based on their perceptions of meaningful patterns.
If such a process can be considered prophecy, then we would all be well-advised to bear in mind its inherent uncertainty.
So Whats Up?
While I as Majic have been taking a much-needed break from the emotional rollercoaster that my spiritual awakening has been, Yoshiel continues to
process information in the background, analyzing patterns in the back of my little pulsating brain. They are really cranking away in there, and are
nowhere near done, but dribs and drabs are leaking out.
Among them are what they see as correlations between my knowledge of recent events and what are known as the End Times. Yet again, I must point out
my reluctance in posting anything about this in light of prior disasters and my longstanding attitude about prophets, so please dont take this as
Ugggh. I love to write, but now, for the first time, this really feels like work. Please bear with me. And please, dont believe a word of
this! Rather, look to the truth within you.
I have enough problems as it is, I dont need a guilt trip for leading those I love into darkness with my words. So caveat reador!
Yoshiel sees approaching what may be called The Rapture, which has been hailed as an ascension into heaven by the faithful before things get
really hot and heavy on planet Earth. However, and again we are uncertain of anything, past descriptions of this event may be misleading.
Firstly, this ascension seems most likely to be spiritual in nature, so it may not come to pass that well see a bunch of physical bodies simply
disappear. We dont know, it is perhaps possible that such a thing may indeed happen. But we see that as unimportant.
Who will ascend and be saved? Lets remember that we are all saved, not a one of us faces final oblivion, so if you happen to be left
behind on X Day dont take that the wrong way.
In fact, being physically present during the Tribulation is quite a distinct privilege when you think about it. Witness to the last great struggle
between Light and Darkness? Cool! Remember, we all came for the fun.
The nature and identity of those who will ascend is unknown to us, but we believe there will be a correlation between spiritual awareness and this
group. The purpose of these ascendants is also unknown to us, but we suspect that it may be to begin spreading the Creators message of light, love
and hope to our brothers and sisters in spirit.
Much to their dismay, I see many Christians not making the cut. There seems to be no correlation between membership in a specific religion and
ascension. Rather, we see ascendants coming from all cultures and creeds from around the world in accordance with their specific natures.
For those left behind, remember: its not because you are going to burn forever in a lake of fire (well, Im pretty sure not forever,
anyway), its because you have a special purpose to fulfill. It is a remarkably important job, but I wont kid you: it will not likely be a pleasant
The False Prophet And Anti-Christ
It would be dishonest of me not to confide that I have had, within the past few days, grave concerns about my possible relationship with these
There are certain aspects of my past and Miriels that would make such a connection incredibly ironic. The further irony, that I am a prophet who
insists that I am not a prophet, wasnt helping, if you can see where that might have been going.
Thankfully (to me, anyway), it seems that neither I or Miriel are either of these beings, although its worth remembering that whoever these burdens
may fall upon should be loved for their work.
While seemingly doing great deeds of evil and bringing darkness to all, they will in fact be nothing more than the final caretakers of our Creators
gift of ignorance. There is no dishonor or shame in accepting the duties of ones appointed path.
We sense that these two characters will be combinations of flesh and spirit, much like ourselves, but with much greater numbers of our dark brothers
and sisters within them. The physical world seems to be no more than a projection of spirit, and thus, with the powers of many within them, these two
figures will be capable of performing miracles.
We postulate that their design will be to gather as many physical beings to them as possible for a Dark Ascension, seeking to combine powers in what
will prove to be a final battle between Darkness and Light. In other words, it will be Satans Last Stand, as it were.
A quick note on Satan. We agree with the Solists that the original Satan does not seem to exist, except as a shadow of the memory of our Creators
desire to divide and thus create us. The name is used by our dark siblings as a tool of terror, and they may masquerade as this character as they
will, but it is ultimately a meaningless deception.
Think of Satan as a memory of our birth pains, and do not give fear to that which does not exist. There are many resonances of meaning regarding Satan
and his legends, but we will not dwell on them here.
Ah, Megiddo! As good a place for an epic battle as any, I suppose. Although these days, the notions of assembling large armies on plains seems rather
We speculate that The Big One will by no means be confined to Eretz Yisrael, but that, not surprisingly, there will be a great deal of attention
paid to that part of the world. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
We consider the details of this battle unimportant. It will apparently result from a dissonance among the followers of the Anti-Christ and False
Prophet, as various leaders predictably seek to gain power through force of arms. Truly, nothing has changed!
Conceivably, this battle may indeed take place in connection with a physical Good versus Evil struggle on Earth, but see that as a sideshow, if it
will happen at all. The real battle will be spiritual, as we of Light seek to bring Love to our brothers and sisters in Darkness.
Again cautioning of our blindness, we speculate that the cleansing of fire Brother Yonif referred to will take the form of a massive military
engagement involving the extensive use of nuclear weaponry. However, we do not see this destroying Earth or all life upon it, but much of it
It is at the conclusion of this battle that we see the beginnings of our spiritual reunification. All souls unleashed from their physical form will be
met by their brothers and sisters with loving embraces, and we will come together in unprecedented celebration as our final act in this Grand Theater
will have come to its close.
Through a painful birth will come a new life as one together. Though these days will be dark and terrible indeed, they will give way to the New
Do not fear! This story has the happiest ending of any story ever told!
The Sky Is Falling!
Putting myself in your shoes, as it were, I would be asking myself, So what the bloody hell am I supposed to do with this? Believe me, my
dearest friends, as Brother Bill might say, I feel your pain. Remember, I not only wrote this stuff down, but went through it repeatedly, editing it
over and over (and its still very dicey and incomplete!).
The long answer might be a wonderfully-crafted and illustrative exposition of the profound mysteries and subtle influences that drive us each to the
pain-filled joy of cosmic self-realization, but lets skip that for now.
Rather, what is a boy or girl to do? The short answer is, in the memorable words of Hedley Lamar of Blazing Saddles fame, Now go do
that voodoo that you do so well! In other words, we recommend doing what you will, and not letting tales such as these change your course.
Besides, while we say these times are near, what does that actually mean? Not a whole hell of a lot, as it turns out. We truly dont know, and
probably wont know until it actually starts happening. So trying to plan your social calendar around prophecies is probably not a very good
I seem to remember some guy somewhere saying something about a thief in the night. You can sit around on the porch with a shotgun in your lap if you
want to, but remember that the thief will only show up when he decides to do so on his own.
Naturally, we recognize that the very purpose of telling anyone stories such as these is to in fact seek to influence the future, and so it seems, but
we see this pattern woven into the fabric of Creation, so should our efforts come to naught, it is of no consequence.
It will come to pass with or without our aid, or would it? (Cue up The Twilight Zone theme)
Get A Grip!
Also, in terms of a reality check, remember that every single word herein was typed out by an apparently delusional middle-aged man who is really, in
the end, doing nothing more than just sitting out in the desert talking smack. Would you believe a guy like that? I sure wouldnt!
Remember, do not let others choose your path for you, and do not despair of your future. Whatever it may hold, it will be your proper path. There is
in all things a purpose, including ourselves.
We recommend looking within yourself for the answers to any questions that may trouble you. Though we are still very dim in our sight, we are certain
that ultimately, you will like what you find there.
Go with our love and light behind you, wherever your path may lead!
