Word of the Week

by Melissa Wimbish

I’m just now hearing the news about Judgment Day on May 21st. How long has this date been set? I didn’t see it marked in my Google holidays so…does this mean I should just stop practicing?

apocalypse – any of a number of anonymous Jewish or Christian texts from around the second century b.c. to the second century a.d. containing prophetic or symbolic visions, especially of the imminent destruction of the world and the salvation of the righteous. Great or total devastation; doom. A prophetic disclosure, a revelation (Definition provided by Merriam-Webster Online)

  1. Thank you for the definition. I would definitely keep practicing cause during the ascension of the righteous those of us staying behind might need some Wagner Die Valkiire as mood music.

  2. The one more definition to this word – apocalypse.
