Apocalypse means unveiling

As I was out on a night hike, contemplating and trying to get a sense of what is about to happen, this sentence came into my mind: "Apocalypse means unveiling." This was accompanied by a burst of -- uh, "imagery," I guess, though that's not really the term; something neither visual nor aural but suggestive of both. The best way I can describe it is to say it feels like a complicated multidimensional geometric shape unfolding and articulating itself in the mind, with a powerful sense that a mass of information has been transferred just below the threshold of normal consciousness. (If I were to focus on its aural-like aspect, I might compare it to a recording of Donald Duck played back at very high speed, as un-sublime as that sounds!) The tip of that iceberg, the only part that can be verbalized, was the sentence, "Apocalypse means unveiling."

I very rarely have such experiences, so when I do, it naturally captures my attention. I therefore have no very satisfying explanation for the fact that, some 20 minutes later, I had completely forgotten it! I was left only with a vague sense that I had forgotten something, something important, something that I needed to write about . . . I struggled to recall, retracing my steps and my trains of thought, and then -- with the abruptness of a forgotten dream-memory spontaneously recovered in the late afternoon -- it all came back to me.

In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.

Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.

But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

-- Luke 12:1-5

My sense is that the next big event is not going to be an event at all, but a revelation of what has already been done — a revelation so clear that even those who slept through the global coup will not be able to ignore it.

This makes sense. God's great mercy means he will give us every chance to wake up. Those who still refuse to do so won't be able to complain that they weren't given the opportunity. I'm guessing that those who require less to wake them up will be better placed when we move on out of this world but everyone can be saved, right down to the very last moment which is a hopeful thought.

@Wm - "a revelation so clear that even those who slept through the global coup will not be able to ignore it"

I cannot imagine what such a thing could be - at the mass scale. I would have thought that if such a thing were possible, it would have happened already, long since.

Of course individuals awaken, but what event could (even in theory) suddenly and in large numbers awaken the kind of people that mostly inhabit the world now?

Wm Jas Tychonievich said...

@Bruce - A worrying question. Experience suggests it would have to be something very crudely physical, and on a very large scale. One doesn't like to dwell on the possible details of such an event.

I think the ancients were right to think lightning came from God. Striking the Basilica twice when Pope Benedict resigned, and recently the infamous mural being destroyed.

As Dr. Charlton stated, all of these are dismissed automatically by unbelievers. Even a Miracle of the Sun like at Fatima would be dismissed.

Even mass sudden destructive effects from the peck would be explained-away and disappeared for a large percent of the population. Maybe it would be enough to reveal for those on the fence - but spiritually?

Would it be possible for the forces of evil to intentionally do the revealing - perhaps an attempt at mass damnation? Does the enemy need that clear and conscious choice rather than just leading along slaves into passive acceptance?

"Experience suggests it would have to be something very crudely physical, and on a very large scale."

One possibility: Mass death in the vaccinated, in numbers that simply cannot be ignored or hidden.

Mr. Andrew said...

Maybe part of their sci-bar-pan-dem plan. Some sort of mark to access it again. Maybe a specific act of desecration required?

I think that the spectacular event you think would have to happen and that you are sening will happen is the long-foretold Illumination of Conscience - "a critical moment in human history when every person alive will see their soul in the light of divine truth".
