I have a scary observation to report.  It’s in the #nature. Southern summers were always abundant on insects, even overabundant.  Not now–the world seems like become devoid of our little buzzing buddies (and foes).  What had happened to them? 
 April is a summer month.  I am looking around and asking myself: where are they?  Where are our ubiquitous mosquitoes, including this funny tiger bunch, where are ladybugs, where are yellow jackets, where are orange wasps and where are my favorite praying mantises, where they all had gone?  I am looking around and I see none, NONE!

Eschatology is like a chronic infectious disease - once you’ve got into it, it never goes away. I just finished #20 THE TURN AND THE CROSS, and I thought that this would be quite enough, but then my sight had caught these lines:
“And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon.” Rev. 9:11.

  • All he wanted was a fish Sandwich.

What a sad epitaph! Sounds almost like a joke, but do we really have to kid ourselves? While we are getting accustomed to the adage that the last human being will pass away not with a bang but with a whimper, a Fucushima power plant keeps stuffing the ocean with curies. Soon our tuna will be glowing in the dark like Locusta St. Iohannis in flight. If that would be our only problem, it would be bad enough, but there are about a dozen more bigger woes at hand and only God knows how many more are creeping in the dark, yet unknown. Some of those demons are marching over us and don’t even care to hide their horns.

We live in a very interesting time. Yes, I mean it. And I would like to expound on this subject, before some of you have taken these words for merely a trite remark.
Let's take a look at ourselves. We are all different, of course, but there is one particularly interesting division among us. Some of us are atheists, stalwart and aloof to any calls of reason. Some of us are believers by tradition, by upbringing, or by a habit. Some came to God over doubts and searching.

I think I ought to do some clarification here on my last post: WE CALL IT ‘CHENEQUE’.
First of all, a single witness account doesn’t prove that cheneque and  Watchers’ “fairy” is the same thing. There are similarities, though: geography of origin, underground dwelling, humanoid body, wings and bad attitude. The difference comes only from the height: my friend says that his cheneque was about 18 inch tall, while the specimen of   Marzulli (which he had seen) is about 7 inch. My friend saw wings, but he didn't see it fly. The thing hopped up the stairs instead of straight walk.

Some of you, especially those who love The Doors, might remember Jim Morrison yelling to the crowd about astrology [1]:
“I think it’s a bunch of bullshit, myself. But I tell you this never mind if this is a quote, man! I tell you this. I don't know what’s gonna happen, man, but I wanna have my kicks before the old shithouse goes up in flamesAlright Alright!!!”
Morrison didn’t know, but I think, I know when it will happen. I've run into the answer while I was going through theSecond Book of Ezdras. The book talks a lot about how it will go, but it also says when

Imho, one of the most relevant to our current affairs books of the Scriptures is the Second Book of Ezdras (a.k.a. Ezra). Ezra was a scribe and a leader of Jewish reconstruction of Jerusalem. While the reconstruction began by decree of Cyrus, King of Persia, even 80 years later, about 458 BC when Ezra moved to Jerusalem, city was not rebuilt yet. Out of all that Ezra had written, we know three books of his name, The Book of Nehemiah and Chronicles. In Book II Ezra had transcribed his dialogues with archangel Uriel which makes it the most connected book to Revelation of St. John and to Book of Daniel. Again, that's my opinion, and I, by no means am a theologian.
