I am Davin Alastair, a storywriter, and these logs may seem unconnected, but in its entirety the door to their understanding will open. This is my last entry, etched with a piece of campfire charcoal; may the message endure, as this introduction to my planet and our inhabitants’ circumstances offers explanation for the essays.
In my possession for the length of our consummatrum est [now completed] journey is a full satchel, carried in the hands of others before given to me, and their witness is equally important. Don’t think I give this up easily, for it has been a great responsibility, but its purpose is to this end, and my duty is now complete.
As to the contents – you must wonder of the importance, that it all should be guarded so long and so carefully. Within is life; it is all about lives, their seeking and their journeys. But that hardly begins the explanation – for this valise contains your future. We are memories; it is to you who remain, who still have time to decide and to prepare. No matter your situation, you will be involved while treading upon your own unicus [sole] pilgrimage. How is it that I know? Within this satchel is the Living Word, King Yeshua’s scriptures; it is forbidden to read in my world, and if it were possible to have this in one’s midst, many could not read it anyway. Dei puer [God’s children] are not taught to read or write where I have lived.
The heart of the Living Word offers the breath of eternal life – and here I can say no more – if capax Dei [capacity for God, if you endeavor to search], then your quest will be discovered. Alas, of all the joys within the Living Word, it reveals all truth; and this is why I must tell of my rarj nantes in gurgite vasto [forebodings for your future world, rare survivors in the immense sea], if it be anything like that of our own. But worry not, you who seek true revelation, for magna est veritas, et prevalebit [truth is mighty, and it will prevail].
In the satchel you will also find a war scroll that tells of the nations of vanity from where our war of two divisions – the Sons of Light and the Sons of Darkness – started. Though two factions, God poured into the human spirit understanding and ability to us all, to undertake marvelous things to improve our living, to overcome our circumstances, to administer kindnesses to those less fortunate, to embrace divine ideals and golden rules that give us extraordinary abilities in the arts and sciences, and places order and virtue to enhance our civilization. Such use of these endowments brought about our differences of the heart.
I gaze at it from a distance now – Sons of Light and Sons of Darkness – they each took to their side. Of two humans, alter ego [another self] – let us name them: the imposter and the genuine, one who represents the dark, and the other, that of light. The imposter rejected his gifts or misused them for carnal purposes, and the genuine used his intelligence to employ principles to create the remarkable for good.
The forcible imposter still blinds, abuses, and deceives his fellow and follower, distorting the divine and rendering his own self-fame and immortalization, saying, sic itur ad astra [such is the way to immortality]. While the unshakeable genuine human treats all with equality and freedom, proclaiming the great good that is coming from their work and their redeemed life as an immortal gift of God. The imposter declares God as his enemy. The genuine is a friend of God’s. The two have been with us ab initio, anno mundi [from the beginning, in the year of the world].
And so, the Sons of Righteousness turned all the way from walking with the people of the age who were in re jus divinum [against the thing of divine law], and we were delivered from the power of the seers of falsehood and teachers of lies. And, as described in the scroll, Deuteronomy 13:13, “Certain men, the children of particepts criminis [an accomplice] from de profundis [out of the depths], deus ex machina [a god from the machine; i.e., from a theatrical contrivance for making gods appear in the air] named Belial Leviathan, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, poco a poco [little by little] saying, ‘Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known.’” We declared our sides; the conflict of spirits felt, and forces of death were upon us. I fought the good fight, but when I faced the end of life, King Yeshua – the Alpha and Omega King – stood in my stead. All of man-made armor could not have saved me from such death.
To simplify: we thrived until social and political management eclipsed our liberty, while the practice of eugenics to euthanasia had unparalleled freedoms. Our human race is no longer its original; it is an evolutionary breed, a hybridization that has bonded in power with the radical forces of universal evil. If all humans are predisposed to understand good and evil, libera te tulemet ex inferis [free yourself from hell], and wish for a moral law for their society, then the value of the account for which you are about to read is established.
My party and I have narrowly escaped. There are countless others who have struggled in this bitter fight, have undergone rigid control, violent persecutions, imprisonment – even unto death. Bellum domesticum, bellum internecinum [war among family, war of extermination]. It is a spiritual warfare as well; the supernatural surrounding everyone is no longer restricted, targeting at will. Many believe we are now lost to oppression and tyranny, as one from a different dominion stands conspicere [conspicuously] as the inevitable monarch of this age, antichristus [numerical 666, of his name, gematria, of man and beast].
