Updated Copy for My Book12:53am friday, 27th september
This all started on a typical Friday night. I was a college student looking for a good time, but what I found instead was beyond a battle royale: I ended up that night having a vision of an INFINITE light, and drafted into service in the War in Heaven. A war in eternity, a war between angels, and more. Needless to say, this changed my life. Like Jeremiah, sometimes God turned me into a babbling fool, like I were “a strong man overcome with wine.” These days, that means I was institutionalized more than once. The action sequences of the War came and went for 25 years, and it all only started to make sense at the end. This is what I’ve learned along the way.

You know the story, right? Lucifer, out of the sin of pride, tries to take over Heaven from God’s rule, and is met in war by the Archangel Michael. It is spoken of briefly in the book of Revelation: “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.” But it turns out it’s not so simple as just that. I’ve come to find out what it is the War really meant to all of us, everyone who’s ever lived, the reason why all things are the way they are. And once one sorts out what the consequences of the War turn out to be, everything in the whole wild world makes perfect sense. This is what I tell.

Do you know what you are looking at?

Christ2:18am monday, 23rd september
People don’t understand what it means that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. Quite specifically, that we could never be admitted into Heaven because we are sinful. We all fall short of the glory. We may only enter because Christ can enter, and because of His reward: that he may invite as many tagalongs as He sees fit. That is what is meant by His being the only way to salvation. Life and death rests solely upon His saying, “I know him,” or “I know him not”: this is the Judgement. And no work we do in this life can earn this path, for all who live besides Him sin in some way, some how. Though faith without works is hollow, it is by faith alone that we are saved. This is the miracle. We are only His when we believe He is as He said He is — the Son of God — and receive the Holy Spirit, which He sent us after He came back from the dead, and then ascended to His right place on high. This is the narrow way, and wide is the way to destruction. Believe, and be saved.

American Aroma12:24am thursday, 19th september
I remember the first aroma I associated with America. It was in our family’s first apartment in Philadelphia, it was the smell of someone cooking behind some other number door, and I don’t know why, but I thought it was someone above us. Vaguely it smelled of some strange meat, more like some soup, salty almost briney the smell — I still can’t place what ethnicity to connect it to, I’m for some reason thinking Middle Eastern. Not quite Indian. I smelled something something like it just recently, which is why I’m thinking of it, caught a whiff of it in my current apartment hallway. I wonder what dish it is, maybe it’s the same one. Wouldn’t that be a kick?

doubt12:01am sunday, 15th september
the doubt that claws at my spirit
singularly to hinder the miracle
i step aside to let it through
for i am done with you, my mote
though of iron you were made
i needed just a gesture from above
and you were wisps of powder
ultimately, an illusion, and an end

Carpe Diem, Memento Mori12:00am wednesday, 11th september

My high school Shakespeare teacher always said that a true intellectual would keep around a human skull, carpe diem memento mori: so to seize the day, remember that you will die.

Judas12:49am saturday, 7th september
I read a book recently, or more accurately, skimmed a book recently, called Judas. In it, the author goes into scholarship that seems to point to the conclusion that Judas Iscariot did not “betray” our Lord, but rather “handed Him over”. It is not a small thing, that difference. It is the difference between guilty and innocent, damned or saved. It is reflective of the view that I was told of in my visions; it seems to have legs, after all. I wonder how the whole myth of the betrayer came to be, if there is, even now, so much evidence that Judas is in fact clean of all blame. And I wonder what it will take to clear his name, dragged through the mud lo these many centuries.

Stranger2:40pm tuesday, 3rd september
I feel, at least at times, that I am no longer of this earth, that I am a true stranger to the waking world. It manifests most intensely when I am with people who’ve known me for a long time, family, and a friend or two. Those who knew me before all the real excitement in my life got started. I think I feel like Frodo after he destroyed the One Ring, and can’t seem to be at home in the Shire anymore. I am changed. This is certain. Even the food seems to taste different. But is there hope, can I be human again? Not just like before January, but like before 1991, or 1988, when the whole trip started? Who knows? One journey ends, another begins, thankful for the ride, make the best of whatever comes.
