Prologue
This 6th day of the month of January in the year 2013 AD, I, the Enchanted Seer, give this prophecy:
The 31st day of April, 2013 will be the debut of the well-known spiritual leader, who actually is named Deceptor Luciferibus. He shall desire to make an appealing public appearance and win the hearts of the masses. I see him aglow in the full worship of the media as the lights pour on him and the human world watches. Then one called the Enchanted Writer shall approach him in dialogue.
——————————————————————————————-
Enchanted Writer: Sir, you daze many when you miraculously turn stones into food to feed many of your followers. Further, many have referred to your motivation and ministration sessions as soul-doping because of the euphoria of these beautiful experiences.
Dec. Luciferibus (shall smile somewhat warmly, but knowingly): Please, don’t thank me.
Enchanted Writer: Then, how is it that these people leave your grounds and still go on to lead depraved, unchanged lives? Is giving them these things proving to be all they really need for living?
Dec. Luciferibus shall smile somewhat nervously, but knowingly, and clean a bead of sweat.

Enchanted Writer: Sir, you have met with the Creator-God himself we have heard. Is this a false allegation?
Dec. Luciferibus (shall smile quite sweetly): I am afraid it is not false.
Enchanted Writer: Please, could you give me a photograph of you and the Creator-God for a keepsake? Permit me say “I am SUCH a fan!”
Dec. Luciferibus shall quickly manufacture a picture of him beside an old huge man with white heavy beard, both of them looking splendorous.
Enchanted Writer: Sir, like I said, I am such a fan. I have also a picture of myself and the Creator-God but it has nothing in common with this.
Dec. Luciferibus (shall then smile quite fearfully): Who are you?
Enchanted Writer: I am sure you know who I am, Sir, and are just teasing me. After all, you are notable for just knowing things, aren’t you?
Dec. Luciferibus shall then be visibly shaken as he pockets a damp handkerchief.

Enchanted Writer: Sir, we heard you grew up in a monastery, and having achieved the height of spiritual enlightenment, want to start a new religion enshrined in oneness.
Dec. Luciferibus shall smile artificially and eye the Writer maliciously, subtly, without saying a word.
Enchanted Writer: Sir, pardon my DIRECTNESS, but does this new religion point at all to the Jesus Christ, who died and lived again to save the lost and degenerate souls, as God?
At this stage, all the floodlights and spotlights and camera flashes shall blow out!
————————————————————————————————-
Epilogue
I, the Enchanted Seer, have written down the words of this prophecy in the Bible –Matthew 4:1-11. The choice of the people to, or not to, follow the Deceptor and the dire consequences (if they follow) are yet unknown, but I shall have died peacefully whilst eating monkeybrain sauce and my sagely bones laid to rest before then.

  1. if you hadn’t died previously, you certainly would’ve at the last line… 😉

  2. Hopefully so, Shards. Hopefully so.

  3. One and the same my friend, one and the same. The deceptor is our very own mind which we diligently watch at all times, or else the deceptor assumes your very identity of “self”. Pay attention to the devil within.
    Matthew can fend for his own meals after his last supper. ☼

  4. Yes Maddy, there is a deceptor within. That’d be a way to look at it.
    My primary attention though, was on the deceptor without.

  5. My point was: the deceptor without is just a reflection of the deceptor within. Otherwise what purpose would the deceptor serve if he is not personally relevant to us? This is a metaphor, or play on our own duality, our own nature is what we’re trying to understand. Make sense? ☼

    • And yes, the deceptor seems a reflection and personally relevant to us; but won’t that just boost his resume? He is that good at being a deceptor that he masquerades as mere reflections of just a deceptor insides at times. Hehehe.

  6. Hmm! It does make sense that duality of our own nature. It does.

    But, question: are you sure the deceptor in the story above is really that other projection of the mind, or a different personality AND being from the Writer?

Even the most absurd thoughts can't ruffle this Enchanted Writer. Spill, please...
