Your Enemy's Enemy

Posted in: Weekly Update by Ariel on January 12, 2009

Again, the dream…
My mother screaming, pulling her hair, and scratching at her face. My father, holding her shoulders, earnestly speaking. Me, screaming nonsense, hoping the madness will stop. My mother taking a burning log from the fire, screaming at my father, using the log as a mace to hit him again and again, as she curses him.

Light flaring to show the puddle of blood around my father’s feet, my mother engulfed in flame. Heat, smoke surrounding me, blinding me to the scene. Cool fresh air and feeling a hand touch mine. Grasping I am lifted up and up and up. Looking up I see the angel rescuing me, and the angel smiles. The angel’s smile spreading wider, showing teeth as the angel is turning to a demon and I am screaming and falling and falling down down down…

Written here are words of the Prophet, a portion of those collected by Kaurophon, The Believer.
When the Marked Ones are Shackled, the Great One will Rise.
The Great One is known by many names.
Many are the Tribes who worship him.
The Tribes work separately together to bring the Great One to us.
The Great One is twofold, separate and complete.

The Savior is one and many, and can bring prosperity and unity.
The Savior will be known by the challenges overcome.
Here are the ways to know The Savior: The Savior will twice free the Prophet from his captors. The Savior will travel in Reflected Stars. The Savior will gain control of the Wastes of the Smoking Eye. The Savior will save the City of the Eye, and create the City of Flames.

I’ve studied the words of the Prophet for 50 years. I’ve studied the works of others who study the works of the Prophet. There are many interpretations, and The Tribes often argue as they try to work together. The largest conflict is whether The Savior and The Great One are references to the same being. Once I worked with those who believe The Savior was another name for the Great One. But they were corrupted and evil. Now I understand The Savior is the one to follow. So now I seek the Savior.
