Chronicles of the Risen Golden State Grizzly Bear, Book 1: Post II:
I AM Griz, the risen Californian Grizzly Bear. I AM Stronger and mightier than the Russian Bear, and I AM extinct. My name is Eric, King of Bears.
What does not kill you makes you stronger, except bears. Bears will definitely kill you.
Lord, I have a question.
Ask, My servant. And I will be happy to answer thee in full.
It is understood that the 267th Pope is coming. He will be the holy pope. And he will be Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke, assuming the papal name of Pope John XXIV. Does this mean a full restoration of the Roman Catholic Church, O’ Lord?
Yes, the Roman Catholic Church is to rise again, in glory. You are its defender in the secular world, King Eric, Great Monarch. And the pope, Pope John XXIV, shall be your holy pope, as prophesied in writings of the saints.
It was said that I might marry. Dost Thou willest me to marry or not, O’ Lord?
If thou wishest to marry, marry only one that I have approved.
As Thou wishest, so shall it be done.
I now have another question, O’ Lord.
Ask, My servant, and the answer shall be forthcoming.
Am I still the Witch King, the Warlock, the Wizard, and the Prophet?
Providing that thou never fall from grace, thy prophethood shalt continue indefinitely. That thou art a wizard is for thou to define and decide. For thou art the Master of the Wizards. That thou art a Warlock is dependent on your continuing servitude to Mary. Remain her servant and spouse, and your status as her sole Warlock shalt continue unto eternity. Amen. As for thy title, the Witch King, that is the title that thou ascribed to thyself upon new understanding of the term, as originally seen in The Lord of the Rings. As long as the definition holds in thy mind, thou must indeed be the one known as the Witch King. Amen.
I did not get an article of fake gold, Lord, for Mary. But I did get a Silver Ankh. Do I put the Ankh on Mary?
Did Mary ask that thou buy if for her, Lord Eric?
Yes, Lord Jesus.
Then put it on, but with a ceremony that includes the pouring of red wine upon it.
I have some Merlot here, O’ Lord, the remainder of the original cup of wine I bought. For I know to only drink half a wine glass, never a full glass of wine, lest I drive and be found DUI. For it is clear I am being observed. Amen.
Do as thou hast planned, Lord Eric. And attend the Mass today at Saint Mary of the Assumption, the Church known as the White Church, due to the colors of its bricks.
Lord, does Thou guarantee that no more shalt Thou permit any person, even a little girl, from taking from the statues on the property of the House of Emerald?
I WHO AM SAY THIS, LORD AZURITE. FROM NOW ON, NO ONE MAY MESS WITH THE STATUES PLACED THERE BY LORD ERIC. FOR ERIC IS A PROPHET OF GOD. HE DOES HIS MASTER’S BIDDING. FOR IT IS WRITTEN: DO NOT STRIKE THE ROCK TWICE. MOSES STRUCK THE ROCK TOO MANY TIMES. AND HE WAS OUT OF LUCK. HE WAS NEVER PERMITTED TO ENTER THE LORD’S REST, THOUGH HE SOUGHT IN VAIN TO GET THE LORD TO CHANGE HIS MIND ON THE MATTER. FOR THE LORD IS NOT A MAN THAT HE CHANGES HIS MIND. AMEN.
AS FOR WHY I WHO AM PERMIT MARY TO WEAR AN ANKH RATHER THAN A CRUCIFIX, IS BECAUSE SHE IS GOING ABOVE JESUS. FOR JESUS IS NO LONGER THE RULER OF THE KINGDOM. HE HAS GIVEN WAY TO A KING YET TO COME. YOU ARE CORRECT, LORD ERIC. YOU CANNOT FILL THE SHOES OF JESUS. NOR ARE YOU THE FATHER OF SUCH A KING TO RISE.
AND YET, THE CHILD HAS CHOSEN YOU TO BE HIS FATHER AND CELIBATE HUSBAND TO HIS MOTHER. REMEMBER THE GIRL YOU GAVE THE CAMOUFLAGE COAT TO, THE ONE THAT WAS VERY LIGHT WEIGHT AND ALSO VERY WARM? BY GIVING IT TO THAT HOMELESS, UNWED MOTHER, THE CHILD BORN TO HER WAS KEPT WARM, AND HE SURVIVED. WELL, THAT CHILD IS THE SECOND PERSON OF THE TRIUNE GOD. AND HE IS THE ONE WHO REPLACES JESUS, WHO FAILED ME.
EVERYONE EXPECTED JESUS TO TRIUMPH, AND FOR YOU, LORD ERIC, EVERYONE EXPECTED TOTAL FAILURE AND A FALL INTO IRREVERSIBLE ANTICHRIST FATE. BUT GOD NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE THE GREAT AND MIGHTY, AND TO THROW THEIR PLANS INTO DISARRAY.
MARY REMAINS YOUR ETERNAL SPOUSE IN HEAVEN. AND THIS GIRL, TO WHOM YOU HAVE GIVEN THE NAME, LILY, SHALL BE YOUR ETERNAL WIFE ON EARTH. AMEN. THIS IS THE WORD OF THE LORD. FOR THOU ART A KING OF GREAT MORAL VALUE TO GOD. AND THY VIRGINITY MAKES THEE PERFECT. AMEN.
THIS NOW CONCLUDES THIS POST. GO AND DO AS THOU HAST BEEN SO COMMANDED. AND SHOULD ANY PERSON QUESTION THEE, MY SPIRIT SHALL SPEAK FORTH FROM THY LIPS AND SILENCE HIM. I AM WHO AM. AMEN.
