"Mokushi" is the japanese translation of "apocalypse", and all the
dictionaries give to it the meaning of "great catastrophe, total disaster,
weighty calamity". Simply this is a common place, a clichÚ which we must
demolish. In reality the root of the word "apocalypse" comes from the greek
"apokÓlypsis", which means "discovery, revealment", and on it we don't find
simply a fatalistic message of world's destruction, but a discovery, a
revealment of divine truths, the plain truths. It's true that Apocalypse
16,16 ("Mokushi XVI, XVI") is mentioning Armageddon, but will be something
very different from a total annihilation of every shape of life on earth.
On the contrary, we've the happy assurance that only the wickeds, the
arrogants, the oppressors, the unthankfuls, the disloyals, the selfish
persons, the God's opposers will be totally destroyed by the angelic
armies. "Mokushi XVI, XVI" will become the imminent and impending event
that will change the human history forever!
