When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins

A multitude of men will be excluded from human life

They will have neither rights, nor roof, nor bread,

They will be naked and will have only their bodies to sell

They will be pushed far away from the opulent towers of Babel.

 

They will swarm like a remorse and a menace

They will occupy entire regions and will proliferate

They will listen to the preachings of vengeance

And they will launch an attack on the proud towers

The time of barbaric invasions will have come.

 

Here, John speaks of the very poor and of their miserable existence beside the rich in their high towers.

In the countries of the Third World, the poor flock to the cities in the hope of sharing in the newly developing wealth.  A lot of them live in slums on the outskirts of these cities.  Some are reduced to foraging for whatever they can find in the tons of rubbish thrown out every day by the luxuriously rich.

These people are easy prey for pimps and drug runners.  They are also easy prey for those who preach vengeance.

On 11 September 2001, some of them launched “an attack on the proud towers”.

Thirtieth prophecy tomorrow.
