The Day of the Testament & The Esoteric

The day of the great Testament of God, the day the seventh moon will rage with fire, the day heaven will cry out for sacrifice, the day the midnight sun will rise, the great and terrible Day of Atonement as foretold in the Bible’s Book of Revelation.

The day the seventh seal is opened and the seven angels with seven trumpets will sound and the mysterious star Wormwood will fall from the heavens and lay waste to one third of the world, the day a great mountain of fire will be thrown into the sea turning it to blood. The great and horrific day that billions of faithful believers have feared that would come in their lifetimes and for many is just around the corner today.

It is a belief that is at the heart of Christianity and believed by the faithful to be divine prophecy foretelling the End of Days, the beginning of the great war of Armageddon and the second coming of the Christ. It is the idea that the vast majority of Christian Churches around the world have used over the years to scare people into believing their interpretation of this story of prophecy contained within their most holy of books.

It is a rather scary idea for both believer and unbeliever alike. That at some unknown point in the future, a terrible world ending war will fall upon us all, bringing death, destruction, on a worldwide scale with a final judgment upon us all at the end of time. Just after the forces of light triumph over the followers of darkness in one last epic battle, Armageddon. A great prophecy that chills many to the bone when they think about it and joy to others that believe it will bring about a kingdom of God upon the earth.
