Armegedggon Wars

Mamas and Papas story on Huel with Monterrey Cypress..

I cant think this thought through..but I was thinking World War One and Two were Armageddon Wars...what I'm thinking of is how the Book of Revelations says after a big war a new Millennia will come...a new world...born Phoenix like...brb...


The phoenix is also a prominent symbol on the flag and seal of the City and County of San Francisco, symbolizing the city rising from the ashes of the devastation caused by the 1906 earthquake.


That's the notion I was thinking of...that a war is a kinda fire like the Phoenix goes through...and the aftermath a rebirth...brb...


A phoenix is a mythical bird with beautiful gold and red plumage. At the end of its life-cycle the phoenix builds itself a nest of cinnamon twigs that it then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix arises.




The physical publication of this book is unique in that it has 2 covers - the first, carries a picture of Jerusalem’s Holy Mount under fiery atomic explosion and burning.
The 2nd Cover, two pages further, displays peaceful blue skies, with a glittering white City - the New Jerusalem, built on the ashes of the first, and the title, in gold letters:
THE PHOENIX WILL RISE FROM THE ASHES . . . Jerusalem - nucleus of a New World Order


Well...that's an example of what's out there....but in truth it's been out there since the Book of Revelations was written..and the Old Testament has apocalyptic thinking in it too...with the same a phoenix like new order will rise from the ashes...



So were there religious terrors and overwrought expectations of the Final Judgment in the year 999? Absolutely. And also in the years 899, 1199, 1299 -- you name it. One might as well turn the question around and ask, ''How could it have been otherwise?''
In the period before the millennium, Christian outposts in Europe were struggling against wave after wave of invaders, among them Muslim Saracens and pagan Vikings and Magyars. In addition, there was the usual run of famines and epidemics.

Beliefs; Millennial fears in the year 1000: apocalypse then, apocalypse now and apocalypse forever.

Published: July 17, 1999


Well..that's close to what I was thinking! fact I recall reading articles like that in 1999...

And Huel is taken with the Old Serra too!...

anyway...that bit where the Phoenix makes it's own nest I find troubling...
