That Is The Sign

August 8, 2022

I want to read.

(A follow-up to “Poor Judgment”)

“I am prepared for Judgment day”.

Wow, cool, someone taking responsibility for themselves. Regardless of how silly, that may seem. However, it gives pause to consider the difference between that, and “ARE YOU PREPARED FOR JUDGEMENT DAY??”

Holy Shit, it is even in the dictionary. WTF?

“Judgment Day : The day of God’s judgment  of humankind at the end of the world, according to various theologies.”


(Such an undefinable definition based on nothing but eons of indoctrinations.)

Trouble is, there are not any calendars with this date notated. Like Valentine’s Day, or Buy Extra Shit Day, due to Presidents, Veterans, Labor, Memories, and the big one…Christmas.

Still “I am prepared for Judgment day”, leads to an entire different thought experiment. (Since, one is not very likely to speak with the person presenting this parable).

Starting with what does either mean? “I am prepared” ……hmmm. How? Is there an objective course, one could take to prepare? Or specific printed graphic novel type instructions to assemble a desk? Or a bike?

Hint: the Bible is not an instruction manual, when information like the following is in it.

Ezekiel 23:20

“20 There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.”

Kind of like “The Fly” episode in “Breaking Bad” it didn’t need to be there….at all. Not for content, context or continuity.

Next question. Why? Nothing exists without observation and perception anyway. What happens with all that preparation, since it is subjective? One could have all the tools to build a desk or bike, but without either “materials”, one can do nothing but wait.

Same goes for “The Judgement Day” when it has all the protocol of being able to be kicked like a can down the road infinitely, there is no longer a day to prepare for.

Yet, if one can attach their perceived modified behavior to a slogan, that I understand am all for it. Each word, is all a derivative of the WORD/GOD. Like each individual is a spark of the divine.

What one does as a spark, with words, can only bring them closer to the all encompassing divine WORD.

“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”

    Those are wild passages! I could be wrong but I think those Ezekiel passages are meant to be metaphors for the depravity of humankind, by referring to cities that were supposed to be holy:
    “They became Mine and gave birth to sons and daughters. As for their identities, Oholah is Samaria, and Oholibah is Jerusalem.” Ez 23:4
    But ya, so weird to have such explicit and grotesque language! That old testament is hard. From looking around at current culture, I would say we’ve returned the circle to just that same place. So maybe you’re a prophet!!
    Keep giving us the good word. Thanks much!
