The Prophet Is a Fool. The Spiritual Man Is Mad.


Don't be a Gnaztic. Make no formed concept about
the realness or unrealness of existence



hE prepares for apocalypse, friend. It might come at any time. Or so they say the prophet is a fool, the spiritual man is mad. Good news from the prophet Hosea against Israel and not  befuddled America or Europe.      The days of retribution have come;
            Let Israel know this!
            The prophet is a fool,
            The spiritual man is mad
            Because of the grossness of your iniquity,
            And because your hostility is so great.
Apocalypse yourself! It certainly saves lives in government talks. We practiced getting under tables. People in Hiroshima and Nagasaki died looking up at the flash, took glass in the face. They say ballistic glass lacerations caused the majority of 1000 injuries at the Chelyabinsk meteor air burst, February 15, 2013. They don't say that during these thirty year preparations for war in schools the government was silently nuking the United States at will- American Ground Zero (Carole Gallagher, 1993). Look beneath FEMA to save. Look beneath the opposition that makes consciousness. The best preparation for apocalypse child is mental. I told my teacher in first grade we had been bombed where I was born. Five years later moved to another city, but the teacher said no, it wasn’t bombs, it was blackout curtains. My aunt was a plane spotter on top city hall. Gasoline was rationed. Each family member had a ration book. Children were schooled in Duck and Cover.

Truly children of another era inoculated with disaster do not take seriously spiritual preparation. Fifty years later, amid psychopaths and sociopaths,  my son and his friend John planned how to take out attackers in their school. Don't give away the plan. Grief counselors are available. Long before they were born I indoctrinated my wife and then each of them how to evacuate public places, fire in restaurants, supper clubs. Instant, prescient out. Where ever we went I marked exits, never sat publicly with a back to the door, rehearsed action to follow. Apocalypse is awareness. I am listening to the risky neighborhoods where we lived. To live close, relatively poor, one car, this was the target zone, the existential threat children escape in the Blood Moon.

Apocalypse gets science and government unleashed, but can still get burgers too, equally dangerous.  Lovely children of the air, four eclipses of the tetrad moon intersecting Israel with its third American harbinger - Look good when it comes. I got a trim to get a better seat. If you don't know what the harbingers are, be blessed and get back. Are you ready? Don't be absurd. We long for it. We exult to flail the pots when rulers counsel together.  Everybody denies they are dashed to pieces. Astrologers think it's the Ukraine. Prophets think it's the fig. Pundits think it's Syria, Iraq, Honduran children at the gates!  Hosea thinks, the days of visitation are come, the days of recompense are here. Israel shall know it, the prophet is a fool the spiritual man is mad  9.7). My son has a list to do if apocalypse starts in the next two weeks. Deepen his spiritual life, put up cucumbers. He's filling water barrels. Do something. Drink the water of life freely at one AM. The kiln is cooling, to open at dawn. My inebriate metaphors linger. El Yah is the glory of Yah El.

Think about the aftermath not over at the finish. When you are last standing you will prove. Fathers and mothers know. I count bruises like tattoos. Repudiations galore. Three times fired as professor, four times hired (then retired). Four destructions of nature: strip mines, watershed of Bull Creek, the Experimental Drug and Herb Garden, the closing of Bishop College, building the Papago Freeway. Oops, five. Three uprootings: coal, steel country and back, Costa Rica and back, the Black college and back x 2. Severance of profession, contacts, preferments. Repudiation by those these were surrendered for. What was said in Herbert is the new commentary of Shakespeare's Psalm, translated for the King, God is my refuge and my strength, a very present help in trouble, therefore will not we fear, though earth be removed and the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea. In Collar and Artillery, read yesterday to my son, also born April 3, Herbert refutes the stars, aligns with Maimonides:

but as I raved and grew more fierce and wild at every word,
methought I heard one calling, Child:
and I replied, My Lord.
He says
I, who had heard of music in the spheres,
but not of speech in stars, began to muse:
but turning to my God, whose ministers
the stars and all things are.

These lines are the apocalypse of stars, but that's below, where dead bodies thrown into tombs come out alive from landing on Elisha's bones, who only wants to be taken up but has to wait. It is an honor to join our brothers in their death. So Donne, Good Friday, Riding Westward, says:

What a death were it then to see God die ?
It made His own lieutenant, Nature, shrink,
It made His footstool crack, and the sun wink.
Could I behold those hands, which span the poles
And tune all spheres at once, pierced with those holes ?
Could I behold that endless height, which is
Zenith to us and our antipodes,
Humbled below us? or that blood, which is
The seat of all our soul's, if not of His,
Made dirt of dust, or that flesh which was worn
By God for His apparel, ragg'd and torn?



First and last the prophet promises dew, but in between "the prophet shall fall" (Hosea 4.5). False prophets get treated like a moth (5.12). Without a king, a prince, a sacrifice, an image, an ephod, a teraphim, they go naked at the last (1.4,5). He says folk seek wisdom from their cars (staff), ask their (google) glasses what to do. Brains bypass sense, outernet gauze, false prophets, priest murders, hemlock furrows: "I saw your fathers first ripe in the fig, but they went to Baal-Peor" (9.10). The prophet is a fool and the spiritual men are mad. I have a  Countdown starting.

Now about the earth raged Kurzweil. He claws the sea and transplants his body into pigs, seeks to divert the sense. As innocent as evangelions against the angels the otaku war on childhood and old age, children raised in the shadow of the last days war think they are amazed.

These judgments can be searched at Insight Statutes and The Palms of David.
