The Thousand Years



And when I read those current events of Egypt and the middle east in the headline news these days and times, those thoughts of religion come to mind. And below are some of those sayings that I have come across in my internet travels.


The birth pains increase and the blind multiply.

For the blind cannot see, no matter if Jesus stands right in front of them.

Surely Lord, is there even more to save?
When they only scoff and mock and are filled with evil thoughts?

Surely Lord, you know the hearts of men.
Is there left any man still that can be called to you Lord?

In Jesus Christ.

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Partial excerpt from The Prophecy of John of Jerusalem

Gold will be in the Blood.
Whoever looks at the sky will calculate how to profit from it.
Whoever enters the Temple will meet merchants.
The Rulers will be money-changers and usurers.
The Sword will defend the Serpent.
But fire will be smouldering.
Each town will be Sodom and Gomorrah.
And the children of the children Will become the fiery swarm. They will raise up the old banners.

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Man will have peopled the Heavens and the Earth and the Seas with his Creatures.
He will want the powers of God.
He will know no limit.
But each thing will turn against him.
He will stagger like a drunken king.
He will gallop like a blind knight.
And with his spurs he will push his mount into the forest. At the end of the road will be the fall.

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Towers of Babel will rise in all corners of the Earth.
That one will be Rome and this one will be Byzance.
The fields will be empty.
The only law will be that of oneself and one’s clan.
But the Barbarians will be in the city this time.
There will not be enough bread for everyone.
And games will no longer be sufficient.
Then people with no future Will light great fires.

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
He who speaks of sworn Oaths and of Law Will not be heard. He who preaches the Christian Faith Will lose his voice in the desert.
But everywhere will spread the strong waters Of the infidel religions.
False messiahs will assemble blinded men.
And the armed Infidel will be like never before.
He will speak of justice and of right And his faith will be burning and decisive.
He will take his revenge for the Crusade.

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
The noise of killing will roll like a storm upon the earth There will be barbarians among the soldiers of the last legions.
The infidels will live in the heart of the Holy Cities. Each in turn will be barbarous, faithless and lawless. There will be no more law and order.
Hate will spread like a flame in the dry forest.
Barbarians will massacre soldiers.
The infidels will slit the throats of the faithful. Brutality will be everywhere and the cities will die.

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins.
Everyone will know what is happening everywhere on Earth. They will see the child whose bones are piercing his skin. And the one whose eyes are covered in flies.
And the one being hunted like a rat.
But the man who sees will turn away his head.
For he will be thinking only of himself.
That man will give a handful of seeds in charity When he sleeps on full sacks.
And what he gives with one hand he will take back with the other.

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins.
Whole regions will be prey to war Beyond the Roman limes and even on the former territory of the Empire,
Men of same cities will cut each others throats.
Here it will be war between tribes and there between religious believers.
The Jews and the children of Allah will unendingly oppose each other And the land of Christ will be their battlefield.
But the infidels will want to defend the purety of their faith everywhere.
And opposite them will be only doubt and power.
Then death will advance everywhere like the flag of the new times.

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins.
Man will think that he is God when he will be nothing more than a baby.
He will hit out, always overcome by anger and jealousy.
But he will be armed with the power that he has taken.
And blind Prometheus will be able to destroy everything around him.
He will remain a dwarf of the soul and he will have the strength of a giant.
He will take enormous strides forward but he will not know which road to take.
His head will be heavy with knowledge.
But he will not know why he lives and dies.
He will be like the fire always gesticulating or the child who whimpers.

If you believe. Will this arm be healed. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.

Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and then call for Peace on Earth.

"Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' Vanity asks the question, 'Is it popular?' But, conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one's conscience tells one that it is right."
~ Martin Luther King Jr.
