Day 3 – An Apocalypse Omlette sans Midgets…
Forsooth, it cleanses mine own soul and purges from it’s murky depths the darkness and vile, tepid residue which hath lain… to finally know thou art taking these writings to heart and have finally realized the truest value herein…. because brothers and sisters…….
The Third Seal – Famine & Drought, brought swift and true on a Black as night Stallion – And when He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, “Come.” And I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand….And the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give it’s light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken, the tribes of earth will mourn and they will see the coming upon the clouds with power and great glory…. and with swiftness of resolve shall mankind be swept into the clouds for the migration shall hath begun….
Really!? Clouds, seriously – that was what you came up with as the best way to transport humanity into the hereafter. Oh OK great, because ummm you’ve only had like several millenia to go ahead and work out the logistics of this whole thing, I mean bloody hell, Disneyland has only been around for a minuscule fraction of recorded history and even they have that cool monorail thing going on… clouds…. jeez, get it together – far be it from me to criticize crowd control in heaven but I’ve been in some pretty thick fog in my day and I’m not overly impressed with the level of comfort it offers, I hope this is something they are looking into….. after all, the devil is in the details…..
Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s wages, and three quarts of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine! For tis this Barley and this wheat and this Oil and wine that shall be out forth as tools of the trade for blessed are the midgets…..which is funny because of my history, A number of years back I fell in with a pretty tough crew of midgets, to this day I still have terrible scars upon my knees from trying to fit in – I certainly didn’t want to be the odd man out and so spent most of those years walking around on my knees….
Spending all that time on my knees gave me exactly the opening I needed into the priesthood……………………………… …..because it gave me stamina for pro-longed prayer sessions….. why, what were you thinking? And lo, did the clergy see me, and cry out in praise of my ability to offer up alms by way of bent kneed worship… and so verily was I admitted into the inner folds of the religious elite… as I had proven myself a worthy and penitent man – this is how I came to be in possession of the majority of this information, after having been taken into the confidence of those most holy souls… further was I revered after breaking ties with my midget friends and so didst thou then deem it time for me to stop kneeling and stand tall, after much rending of garment and gnashing of teeth, men fell and proclaimed it a miracle….
The key to the awareness of the opening of the third seal is not as subtle as the other six, whence upon you – there shall be no mistaking the breach – “O my God! verily Thou wottest that I cast not my net each day save four times; so this time, O my God, deign give me my daily bread.” Now in this passage daily bread refers to food in general and the original food in particular – the original food is the ultimate cyclical paradox, which came first the chicken or the egg… this timeless question holdeth the key.. and so it is written that when the inhabitant of the egg, lo bringeth forth his face to the outside of the shell, be steady in your hale, for the third seal has been opened….
Take stead in these the 3 seals and pray knowledge tis not lost… so that you may take up arms and kick it old school to defeat that which shall remain nameless……
Have a Great Day….
