+++ Coda: the Dénouement +++
We know where the center of our earth is.
Do you recall? We are not speaking of three
dimensional centrality. Rather, God’s Divinely Chosen ‘two
dimensionality’. That is to say, where He pre-determined, from eternity,
the ‘center’ of our spherical earth’s two dimensional surface
to be. Like a map maker placing 0° latitude & longitude And this is
where? If you’ve perused Helplessly
Ignorant carefully, or have an excellent memory, then you know the answer.
It is the
Apart from Jesus & Mary, that is, the sinless Second Adam & Second Eve.
I hesitated to write this, biding my time thoughtfully and prayerfully.
Yet every sizeable composition of words often has a dénouement, tying everything together. And every sizeable composition of notes often has a coda, recapitulating the theme till leaving a listener, hopefully, satisfied that both it and he or she are complete. Worthwhile to proffer something here? And, if so, opportune that it be proffered? This entails what I had to decide. The average person hasn’t fondness or a taste for allegory. More allegory, then? One last visual parable, like pearls put forth on a golden platter? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. No eyes? Nothing seen. No taste? Pearls lost, splattered in the mud & filth of souls who couldn’t care less for what is precious.
On the other hand, fake pearls masquerading as the real thing? Beyond sad.
All the same, one wistfully hopes recipients aren’t prone to wallow.
That said, we risk the pearlesque coda & dénouement.
If the lengthy sketch regarding the seven heads of the Apocalyptic Oceanic Beast is accurate --- at least in great part, with but a few tweaks needed --- then we’ve a pattern put into place by God on earth. Not that He is directly responsible for everything these bestial heads do or say. To the contrary, that He foreknows their existence and all that they’ll ever do or say, He then deciding, as God Almighty, what He’ll permit, or not permit, and how He’ll work it all for good in the end, despite our wicked intent.
So what is the pattern? Nemrod begins with
Seventh head; seventh dream; seventh pursuit; seventh doom of divine delusions.
If you were a giant laying upon the earth, with
head cradled in
Allegory? Indeed, yes. The last 5000 years of human life foretold & foretended.
Crucifixion, death, redemption, healing, worship, redemption… and rebellion.
Seventh monstrous head roars, shaking the world. From out of the depths he rises, doomed to fall back into the burning pit after a short time of boasting & arrogance. A Crucifixion of Christ all over again. Yet Jesus arose and Catholicism reigned supreme, evangelizing the whole world for His Roman Catholic Faith, outside of which not one human being can hope to find Celestial Safety. The heavens grow dark; earth frozen, harsh. But dawn’s rose glows on horizon, augur of a new resurrection nearly here.
