Are we living through the Apocalypse? by Brother Peter Dimond of the Most Holy Family Monastery

A series of transcriptions from the video of the Apocalypse by Bro. Peter Dimond
Brother Peter Dimond,
"It's quite interesting that this week ( April 21, 2010 ), right at the time we were finalizing some of the more important parts of this recent video series, about how we believe the EU is the beast out of the sea, a volcano erupted in Iceland, sending a dark ash cloud over Europe causing flight disruptions, and in fact grounding all flights from Europe for the first time in modern history.
What's so interesting about this phenomenon, is that the ash cloud seemed only to affect Europe - it affected other countries outside of Europe, in so far as they couldn't travel to or from Europe - basically the wind blew all the ash clouds towards Europe and stopped all flights.
Headlines read, "Iceland Volcano Eruption Continues to bring Dark Ash Clouds Over Europe." - April 18, 2010. Another interesting headline, "Cloud Over EU For Week."
So we had a dark ash cloud over the EU confined essentially to Europe, which I believe is the beast, and what I believe you might be seeing with it, is the fulfillment of Apocalypse 16:10.
Apocalypse 16:10. "And the fifth angel poured out his vial on the seat of the beast;and his kingdom became dark and they gnawed their tongues for pain: And they blasphemed the God of heaven, because of their pains and wounds, and did not penance for their works."
We have the interesting prophecy of how the angel will pour out his vial upon the seat of the beast - well, if this is correct, what is the seat of the beast? Europe!
And what happens? His kingdom becomes dark. What did we see? A dark ash cloud over Europe - something they have never experienced before in modern history.
The flight disruption was bigger than 9/11, and some people are of the opinion that 9/11 was significant enough to be mentioned in the Bible - this was more significant than 9/11 in terms of disruption - it disrupted all of the flights for a longer period of time and more of them.
We see this prophecy about the kingdom of the beast, and they gnawed their tongues for pain, and they blasphemed God because of their pains and their wounds - we see people stranded, we see chaos, and we read the headlines "Volcano Flights Chaos Leaves Many Passengers Broke." - airlines losing $200 million a day - people stranded in Europe with nowhere to stay, and hotels are packed like they've never seen in modern history.
So, there is definite pain that has come with the volcanic ash cloud.
It's also interesting that the vial the angel pours out resulting in the dark ash cloud over the seat of the beast seems to parallel Exodus 16:16 and the ninth plague that was inflicted upon Pharaoh for refusing to let the Israelites go, " And the Lord said to Moses, 'Stretch out thy hand towards heaven, and may there be darkness upon the land of Egypt, so thick that it may be felt."
And the darkness in that case, was so thick you couldn't see around you - what's so interesting is that the plague lasted three days - and if this disruption lasts three to five days, it would be as long a duration as that plague.
Some people might say it's not the same. No, but it's a different kind of darkness - it's extremely disruptive in terms of the modern world.
People have to think about, that if the Lord is going to come as a thief in the night, and when people don't expect it, yet there will also be these supernatural punishments - this is exactly the type of punishment/plague that could coincide with both of these realities and fulfills the prophecy.
Unless you are looking at it more carefully, you wouldn't necessarily perceive that it's an Apocalyptic punishment.
Also, interesting is in an overhead radar shot of the erupting volcano shows a crater with a face in it that looks like a demon - as reported in the news.
So the fact that it was confined essentially to Europe, is miraculous in itself, and causing so much pain and disruption to Europe, I believe this is the probably the fulfillment.
