The Real Apocalypse: The Revelation At the End of the Age

“Apocalypse” is a Greek word that actually means to "uncover, reveal, or unveil" the truth that has been ignored, forgotten, misinterpreted and misunderstood, and the Greek phrase “apokalupsis eschaton” literally means "revelation at the end of the age."

That, of course, is not what the most commonly accepted meaning is. According to that, Apocalypse means a cataclysmic event, all-consuming destruction, an epoch battle and war, and so on. That is painfully evident in all the books and movies that depict such horrible catastrophic events, and in all the "fire and brimstone" sermons of right-wing preachers.

The reason the original and true meaning was replaced was probably because most prophecies foresaw and foretold that prior to the revelation (or judgment) there would be terrible “signs” of its coming – signs that would occur or appear as the end of the age approached, which would include horrible corruption, injustice and inequity, terrible conflict, wars and rumors of war, natural disasters and plagues, and many other terrible things.

That is true, because we have indeed been suffering from such horrible and terrible events and circumstances increasingly during the last hundred years. And with each passing day the world becomes more dark with fear, frustration, anger, conflict and suffering for more and more people who feel more and moire helpless and hopeless — even as the relative few who rule the world live higher and higher in the lap of luxury.

Most of the prophecies of the world’s religions envisioned this scenario, these circumstances andthis tribulation, and that includes Judaism and Christianity, upon which Islam was founded. For if we study the major world prophecies we can see that there is general agreement that the fulfillment of prophecy is about the world going through a terrible tribulation prior to a divine intervention, kind of like going through “labor pains” leading up to a new paradigm and greater civilization being born into the world.

That divine intervention is brought about because of the revelation, the Apocalypse, and the intervention is also called an intercession, and a judgment, which will change the world.

All religious scriptures speak of it, but egocentric, ethnocentric Man has not understood. For example, the following are true, but misunderstood.

A stone smote the image of the King of Babylon, and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.” – Daniel 1:34-35

And in the days of those kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed; nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, but it shall stand for ever.” – Daniel 2:44

The kingdoms of the world have become the kingdom of the Lord our God and of His Messiah, and He will reign for ever and ever.” – Revelation 11:15

The "stone" is the esoteric symbol for the divinely inspired truth, and it is the truth that shatters the image of the pretenders to the throne. And the truth, delivered by the Messiah, the modern son of man who is God's servant, will ensure that the "pen" ultimately and finally proves mightier than the sword.
