Day One Thousand One Hundred Eighty Two #DiaryoftheEndoftheWorld

I was disappointed. Instead of being back in the hiding place and resting, we were trudging up and over hills avoiding the major pathways.

As we neared the Damascus-Jerusalem road, my attitude improved for I recovered my bearings. And soon after Quasimo took the lead as he was more familiar with these approaches to our destination.

Elijah held me back and picked up our conversation of the other day. He shared that his dreams about the end have returned and are stronger than ever. He confessed that he does not dwell on them but finds that as the time draws closer, he did not want to let the opportunity pass to thank me for my constant help and companionship.

Day Two Hundred Forty Eight #DiaryoftheEndoftheWorld

We have a better picture of what has happened in our absence. The two factions have lived in fear of one another and  especially as regards the future.

Frankly they believe they have none.

Both sides admit their non-belief got them to where they are.

Finally Elijah convinced them that though difficulties lay ahead, all is not lost. They believe now. They need only bear witness until the end.
