In Revelation 15 and 16 John is a witness to the deconstruction of the individual human form. The seven churches (or chakras) are given seven plagues “which are the last, for with them the wrath of God is finished.” (Rev. 15:1)

Note: I say “deconstruction” rather than “destruction” because God is the only Reality. All of human experience is a dream-like fantasy. It’s not possible to destroy a thing that never existed. However, this fake life seems all too real to the one who has yet to embrace Christ and to grow in wisdom and awareness of God’s Truth. The upside-down creation follows God’s Absolute Laws, so in a sense, the only reality of creation lies within God’s Law. What has been created by the law must also be deconstructed by the same law. To follow Christ is to exercise the law, not to negate it.

For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. — Matthew 5:18

In John’s experience and understanding, the deconstructed elements “appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire” (Rev. 15:2). For those who have stopped the storms caused by an unbalance between the polar opposites of a dual-natured creation and the multiple shadow appearances in that action “has conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name” (Rev 15:2). These souls stand beside the activity of spiritual (astral) and physical (material) creation and sing “the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb” (Rev. 15:3).

The disciples of Satan, which is everyone who places the creation before the Creator (mammon before God), often argue aloud or silently within their doubts that the one true God is insecure and petulant. Otherwise why would God be pleased by worship and praise, or why does God rule with “fear”. Also, why does an all-powerful God claim to be King of kings yet often appears either absent or powerless before the cruelty expressed by worldly kings.

The paradox of an omnipotent God who remains aloof from human concerns except to pass judgement comes from an egotistical thought process. Few recognize how completely they are lost in God’s creation. These disciples of Satan, may ask “How come bad things happen to good people?”
