No Overtime Pay
After a solid week of intense joining, Vanessa and I have decided to untwangle ourselves and give each other some breathing space. While we were both
reluctant to do this -- indeed, “pulling the magnets apart” was much
harder than we expected -- we agree that it’s the right thing to do. As
engaging as this prophecy stuff is, we must think of this as a marathon, not a sprint.
I figure that I would like to take a few days or maybe a week and just enjoy life, screw around, etc. I feel pretty sure that as I clear up some of
the Majic/Yoshiel dissociation, more information will come to my conscious mind, so even while on hiatus, I’ll probably be working. Talk about a
workaholic! Then again, I love
this job, and don‘t care if the pay sucks.
In any case, Yoshiel or not, I do plan to continue to meditate and relax. While Yoshiel is like meditation on anabolic steroids, that’s not
necessarily the point of assuming a relaxed, inward focus, now is it? Remember friends, I am very much convinced that even without a “spirit helper”
we can learn all that we need to know by simply looking within ourselves.
While this zany adventure (maybe I can pitch a family-oriented situation comedy based on this) has all been a tremendous strain in its way, with the
Multiple Personality Disorder symptoms, short, fitful sleep and light-speed racing thoughts, I noticed this morning that I look younger than I have in
a long time. I’ve never considered myself a “looker” in this life, and I’m sure no Brad Pitt, but I gotta say ladies, I’m looking and feeling a
better after this experience.
I’m guessing the reason is that although this has been quite the wild ride, I’m simply happier than I’ve ever been before. This tends to show up in my
appearance, and I must say, I get a lot
more attention at the supermarket than I used to, to put it mildly.
I don’t care what you look like to start with, when you walk around smiling, chuckling, laughing loudly at the silliest little things and returning
the glance of everyone you meet with an honest, open, loving smile, you look like the most handsome guy or foxiest babe on earth. Trust me, boys and
girls, I have a unique perspective on this.
More on that later, I suppose. This is a prophecy thread. Although I do predict great things for you if you simply enjoy your days and radiate
After Vanessa and I separated last night, I found myself wondering just what distinguishes a prophecy from liner notes. For example, does my dream
involving Archangel Michael count as a “prophecy”?
Well, technically, no it doesn’t, I suppose, not on its face. But what if it contains information that does
qualify as prophecy? I’d feel like
a real fool leaving it out of my prophecy list, wouldn’t I? After all, my portfolio is a bit thin at the moment, and I can use all the material I can
get. So I figure I’ll use the scattergun approach, and just number all this stuff as I go. Better safe than sorry.
Thus it is with great fanfare and puffery that I introduce the new, improved Yoshiel’s Choice™ Brand prophetic verse numbering system. Enjoy, and tell
all your friends to stock up!
Referring To The Manual
! Great to have you aboard. I’ll tantalize and tease you a bit by pointing out that pretty much everything you asked is addressed at
some point or another in my trusty Confessions Of A Dark Sorceror
, including my
marital status. While it may seem like a bona fide descent into madness story, I promise that it has a happy ending. So I recommend checking it out as
your time and interest permit.
Prophet’s Log, Stardate 20040906.1
26. My First Major Demon Visits In The Night And We “Chat“
26.1 Shortly after Vanessa and I separated, I was visited by a very large dark spirit. Unlike the little flies, this one’s music sounded like a large
bumble bee. I could not tell if it was a “group entity”, but as is my custom these days, I greeted it with the “Good News” about itself and our
relationship to one another.
26.2 It actually felt to me like it thought these things over before leaving. I have never known a demon to do that before, and was somewhat
pleasantly surprised. Better to give a demon the truth to chew on than your brain, I suppose.
27. Ill Wind Over Los Angeles
27.1 I thought more on this inkling, trying to understand what I meant by an ill wind. I would like to leave the original Prophecy 18 to stand as
general as it is because I suspect that poisoned winds are going to be more common than a single incident.
27.2 Locations are kind of hard to assess from my perspective, because while I may be able to visualize them, technically, it’s not like I am at each
event or thinking “I am in El Segundo” or whatever. However, it seems possible that my images of these events may be informed by eyewitness
perspectives Yoshiel encountered while searching our common past memories.
27.3 In this case I see a release of a poisonous cloud of gas from a refinery or chemical plant (industrial facility with tanks and piping) which will
sweep over a heavily populated part of the city (what part isn’t, these days?). It is reminiscent in my mind to the Bhopal tragedy, but I think it
will be worse. It looks like Los Angeles to me, but it could be some other major city, probably in the U.S., where such facilities are located near
27.4 I do not know if it will be an act of terrorism or simply an accident, but it will have a profound impact on the national psyche as well as the
political and economic arenas. I suspect that this incident will lead to a significant crippling of U.S. industrial capacity, and we’re not going to
27.5 Because I sense that there may be more than one of these incidents occurring within a short period, they may indeed be due to terrorist activity.
28. Close To You
28.1 This is just plain odd, but very amusing. As I am sitting here typing this, there is a group of small, pink-breasted finches gathered on the tree
outside my window, behind my computer monitor. What is odd is that they are hovering around the window (which is closed), seeming to try to get in.
28.2 Fascinated, I moved to adjust the blinds so I could see them better, but was worried I might startle them. They did not mind at all, and seemed
aware of my presence. We’re talking major bird eye contact, folks! As long as I have lived here, I have never seen such a thing. They
truly seem interested in me!
28.3 Looks like I should go try to find a Franciscan robe to wear as I commune with nature. Hopefully, unlike Brother Homer, they will at least give
me a few moments of privacy so I can shower.
29.1 In my mind I see an asteroid floating through space, seemingly motionless to my view but moving quickly nonetheless. The course of this heavenly
stone was set long, long ago, before any prophet first uttered words. The orbit it follows brings us to our Destiny.
29.2 This is the asteroid Brother John named “Wormwood”, and it is a bitter pill indeed. For within the composition of this stone are substances
highly toxic to life. Though I do not know what they may be, I sense that to touch this stone is to die.
29.3 At its appointed time, Wormwood will collide with the moon, upsetting its orbit and staining its face, darkening it to our sight. From this
collision I see meteors falling in fiery trails onto earth, causing death, but moreso into the sea, causing even more death.
29.4 For its taint of Bitterness will slay uncountable fish and beasts of the sea, and their bodies will be washed up on the shores of the earth as
29.5 Also will the fumes of its flight be bitter, and many will perish from them.
29.6 The children of the Creator will witness this, and know it to be a Sign.
30. Ill Winds Abroad
30.1 I see now the source of my confusion, for there will be many ill winds blowing, and many brothers and sisters will shed their earthly forms to
them. Some of these winds will be poisoned by man, and some will be poisoned by Nature.
30.2 Many days ahead will there be where our brothers and sisters are taken by ill winds.
31. The Sea Gives Up Its Dead
31.1 Brother Yonif’s description of the “sea giving up the dead” has always puzzled me. I thought of the bones of old sailors wafting up from deep
within Davy Jones’ locker -- a pretty spooky image, frankly, but the our dear brother was not known for sugarcoating his prophetic imagery.
31.2 But now I see his words differently. In my mind I see miles upon miles of beaches covered with dead fish and beasts of the sea. Birds circle
above while flies buzz everywhere, and crabs and scavengers of land feast upon the rotting corpses. It is a scene from hell.
31.3 I do not know the cause of this massive oceanic die-out, but I suspect it may be due to volcanic activity, and in at least one case probably
debris fallen from the collision of Wormwood with the Moon.
31.4 There will be many of these massive die-outs, and seeing all of them, we will know them to be a Sign.
32. Fire And Brimstone
32.1 Ah, give me that old time religion. Fire and brimstone, it doesn’t get more biblical than that! If only I had a bible handy to thump, but alas,
whatever copy I may have at hand is packed away in some forgotten box somewhere. But fire and brimstone will there be, nonetheless.
32.2 Around the world, massive volcanoes will erupt, spewing poisonous fumes into the sky, slaying many birds and beasts and taking still more
brothers and sisters from us.
32.3 This activity will be violent and seemingly unprecedented, but it is not. There have been other times such as those to come, my friends.
33. Prophetright Laws
33.1 There will be some who rightly wonder why I should see fit to reword, analyze and seemingly seek to take credit for the prophecies of my Brother
John and others.
33.2 Here let me restate what I have already said: That I do not speak from any insight unattainable by any other of my brothers and sisters. These
things I see by looking within, as did Brother Yonif and all true prophets.
33.3 It is when prophets disagree that you should become concerned, not when they agree.
34. Plague, Pestilence and Famine
34.1 New diseases will be unleashed that will be resistant to our medicines, and many will perish. As bad as the AIDS epidemic is in Africa, these
diseases will be many times worse, and will bring much sorrow.
34.2 Locusts and parasitic insects will issue forth in seemingly unprecedented numbers, devastating crops and causing widespread hunger among those
unaccustomed to it. With these things, more disease will come.
34.3 Many animals, such as toads, will appear in massive numbers in unexpected places.
34.4 Migratory birds and insects will become lost and wayward, suffering torment in their confusion.
35. Fire From Above
35.1 Many shall become ill from the rays of the sun, as the protection of the heavens is denied to us.
35.2 There shall be numerous flares and eruptions of the sun, and we will know them as a Sign.
36. Storms Of Fury
36.1 As bad as the storms ravaging Florida in the days of my writing may be, far worse are yet to come there and in many other places.
36.2 In the lands of the East I see the bloated bodies of my brothers and sisters lying upon the beaches like dead beasts of the sea. Many will be
their number, like driftwood upon the shore, and there will be great sorrow.
36.3 In the lands of the West I see great buildings laid low by the blowing of winds, the rushing of floods and the shaking of the earth. Many shall
perish, and many more shall wander homeless and unaided, crushed by sorrow. The grief from these things shall be far greater than ever known before in
the lands of the West.
36.4 These things we will see, and know them for a Sign.
