It is May 1, 2036. It is a bright and sunny day over much of the United States, which nowadays includes an Anglicized Mexico and much of the Caribbean and Central America. The sky is filled with colorful airships, and far above them, leaving glowing trails from their many little rocket tubes, the express fliers zoom on their globe-spanning routes.

And among the golden flames of light, in the center of them was a man, tall as the floor meets the roof of my hovel; and his head and hair were a bright gray, as

Unto the church of Diana I write. Wisdom and patience brings great things under the works of the LORD and Father. Your patience and respect shall be rewarded for the time at hand. But forbear any reward until the end of the word of Abbah the father; for thou must repent against these things.
For the church of Diana I write. Thou hast a sign of praise and worthiness, and this must end; for you build your pedestal as high as the gentile gods, and this you shall fall from. As for the things thou hast done well, I praise thee in good name for the works of Amon, which thou hates and I loathe. For this you shall receive a crown of life. But repent! For this crown of life is always accompanied by a shield of wisdom, for ye shall lead the generations of nations as the city of all the lands until the end of the word of Abbah the father. Repent and forsaken the ways of pride, and you shall receive a crown of life and a shield of wisdom.

The Scroll Of RighteousnessThe one atop the throne, about his right side was a scroll, two cubits long and half a cubit wide. And upon the scroll was writing on the backside and within; and was sealed nine times over along the length of the scroll. Before me a strong angel looked about and upon his lips uttered, “Who upon the dominion of the LORD shall open this scroll of parchment and look thereon?” And neither man nor beast from the Earth, nor the angels in heaven nor any beneath the Earth were able to open the scroll or look thereon.The Scroll Of Righteousness1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And about me a shudder overcame, and I wept, for no one about the dominion of the LORD was able to open the scroll nor look thereon. And an angel came forth toward me, and uttered kind words from his lips, and was saying, “Weep not King of the Knodites, for a man hath come who has opened the scroll and loosed the nine seals thereof.” And I looked and beheld, a lamb stood with seven eyes and seven horns as though slain.
The First SealAnd the lamb of God opened the first seal, and loosed the seal and read thereon, and an angel with me came forth and saith on me, “Come with thee and join thou in seeing the hereafter,” And I joined him, and beheld a great site. For Diana was a city of crystal and glass. And the people had built great towers to live in, and beasts with wheels upon them carted men and women forth and about to places beneath the towers, and birds upon the skies were as though the size of great houses and screamed under the speed of their flight. And out of their bellies came forth men and women, the people of Diana, and two and fro they went about great structures. And the walls of Diana had crumbled beneath these towers, and structures of stone and crystal, each greater than the last shown forth, and metals and shiny things from the city were made to show its wealth. And the angel who accompanied me saith on me, “for this world things exist that have not before, and upon this world,The First Seal1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
The Fourth SealUpon this being accomplished wrote I the fourth seal, which had opened. And I beheld before me, wide beachheads, and them who lay on the beachheads were tended to by servant men and servant women. And they lay upon the beachheads by day and were tended to with music by night. And the servants came from distant lands as far off as Amon and Shimelah. And the people who tended these things were them who lived in Phoinikes, the city of warriors.The Fourth Seal1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And as the days went by, servants came forth to tend the people of Phoinikes, but on the third day of tending, the people of Phoinikes went to the beaches to be tended to, and to listen to music; and the servants were not in sight, and had not been seen. Upon this, the people of Phoinikes saw that there was a revolt against them, and went to the armory to gather weapons and quell the revolt. The servants who tended them were at the armory of the city, and had been in wait.
Upon this, a great battle waged before the city of Phoinikes, out
The War Of TribulationsAnd there was war in the heavens, many years before our time; for the LORD thy God, Abbah thy father had created heaven and the Earth in his image and under his likeness. And the LORD and father had formed Heaven and the Earth, and made the Earth such that Heaven shall worship it; and Heaven refused to worship the Earth, saying ‘we here who came first by birth are the true heirs to your birthright,’ and made war with the LORD under two-thirds his dominion and with the Satan as their king. And the Satan was beloved most among the angels of the LORD, and was once his shining star and the judge of all the kings of the Earth, and the angels in Heaven; and him rebelled against the Earth and the LORD and were banished from Heaven. They were made such that they could never set foot in Heaven again.The War Of Tribulations1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This

The Four Horsemen and Dragon Of DeathAnd I beheld the eighth seal, which the Lamb of God had opened. And out of this seal were evil things and words and ways, for the Earth had fallen. And the lands of the Medinat had been subjugated and the strongholds in the east belonged to the enemies of the LORD. And I beheld a dragon, which had risen from the sea and out of this dragon was a head of boastful words, one of hateful words; and still one with a tongue as though poison. And the beast that crawled from the seas upon the Earth was accompanied by four men on horses. And these men rode on their horses towards the four quarters of the Earth, and brought about suffering onto these quarters of the Earth.The Four Horsemen and Dragon Of Death1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This

The Great QuakeAfter the horses and their horsemen rode throughout the Earth, for seven years time, I beheld a great quake. For the Earth had shook, and the stars in Heaven fell atop the Earth, and the sun went black as sackcloth and the moon red as blood. And the islands of the Earth, and the mountains were from their placements moved and shifted. And they were shifted out of place or had disappeared from the Earth and from underneath the Earth, and the rivers and streams and lakes all shifted and were moved and routed to different places on the Earth. And every servant and every king and chieftain. Every warlord and bondsman, wise man and gentile, took to the rocks in the Earth which had formed and were formed and to every den and every place of hiding; and hid there saying unto the rocks to cover them such that they shall be protected from the just wrath of the LORD.The Great Quake1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This

I beheld before the altar, and the temple of the LORD which was built before the altar, a multitude of men and women and children who numbered a thousand times a thousand, and thousands upon thousands. And one of the elders who stood beside me saith on me, for I had asked him ‘Who are these arrayed before the LORD and the temple he built in Diana, and whence came they and from where?’ And the elder with me looked upon me, and saith on me, “Them who are arrayed before the LORD and his temple, and the altar built he, are the saints of the LORD, for they are the ones slain, who washed their robes free of sin and devoid of temptation, in the blood of the lamb who sacrificed himself for them who sinned; and they arrayed before the LORD and are priests in his temple, and are servants in his temple.

The Seven Golden TrumpetsI beheld the angel with the first trumpet sound a loud and bellowing note, and out of this came sounds of thunder and a great storm. And a hail of rock and ice mingled with fire and blood, and all the green grass and green things were burnt up. Every tree and every thing in the waters and seas and oceans and atop the land that was of grass and the like were consumed by this storm. And I beheld the second angel who had sounded, and a great mountain, a peak of height opened as though a scroll, and liquid fire ran from its summit as it was cast into the waters. And it consumed a third of the waters of the Earth such that they turned to blood. And every creature of the sea, beast of the deep great and small were slain, and a third of the ships were sunk and had run aground by means of the mountain cast into the deep.The Seven Golden Trumpets1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This

The Marriage Of The LambOut of Heaven came the voices of the Saints who were ready to sow the Earth with their sickles of rock and iron and great metals. ‘Alleluia and power and greatness to the LORD thy God, and the King of Kings, son of Nations!

And on the thigh of the Lamb was written in the Al’lonite tongue ‘Jesher the Wise, King of Kings, father of Saints’ And out of his mouth was a double-edged sword.
