The Prophecy of John of Jerusalem VI

And being that all eyes are on Egypt and the middle east in the headline news these days and time, those religious thoughts come to mind. And so I thought to continue to post another excerpt from "The Prophecy of John of Jerusalem" on this blog in an attempt to maintain content for this blog and my other blog whenever possible.

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.

A Thousand Years
The Prophecy of John of Jerusalem

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
A lot of men will remain seated with their arms crossed
Or will wander without knowing where, with glazed eyes
For they will no longer have a forge to beat metal
And no field to cultivate

They will be like a seed which cannot take root
Roaming around and owning nothing, humiliated and desperate
The youngest and the oldest often homeless
They will have only war to save them
And they will start by fighting themselves
And they will hate their lives.

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Illnesses from the water from the sky and from the earth
Will attack man and endanger him
He will want to revive that which he has destroyed
And protect that which remains
He will be afraid of the days to come.

But it will be very late
The desert will swallow up the land
And water will be deeper and deeper
It will flow some days
Taking everything like a flood
And the next day there won’t be enough for the land
And the air will eat away the bodies of the weakest.

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
The earth will quake in several places
And the cities will fall down
Everything that will have been built without heeding the wise ones
Will be endangered and destroyed
Mud will submerge towns
And the ground will open under the Palaces.

Man will persist for his pride is his folly
He will not heed the repeated warnings of the earth
But fire will destroy the new Romes
And in the accumulated ruins
The poor and the lawless will loot in spite of the Legions
The abandoned riches

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
The sun will burn the earth
The Air will no longer be a veil which protects from the fire
It will be only a curtain with holes
And the burning light will eat away skins and eyes.

The sea will rise like boiling water
Cities and seasides will be covered
And entire continents will disappear
Men will take refuge on the heights
And they will rebuild already forgetting that which has happened.
