Statement: I am forever trying to put a face on chaos: to compartmentalize it, to stop time, to find the pattern in the madness of decay. Yet it always eludes me, dancing past my lens too fast for the shutter to truly render its form. It leads me to the conclusion that the world is still being made, formed and re-formed in an ocean of potential that rises up and crashes on the beach of time and function, only to recede again, leaving merely the rearrangement of raw material in its wake. I try to predict an outcome—what will come next, how will it look, what will it feel like?

The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.
-Prologue from the book of Revelation

Conjuring Prophecy By Heather Stratton

Loneliness and death are among the most feared human experiences-yet they are the most easily remedied fears. Most Christians harbor joy for their final day of departure while many others fear the unknown. This is because most Christians have prepared themselves for their final days, as they know exactly what is waiting for them. Through visual representation of prophecy and way of expediting the inevitable, the images in Conjuring Prophecy foreshadow the impending doom and glory of the rapture.

It has long been prophesized that the end days are coming, but there has never been a time as pressing as now! Horrendous natural disasters occur with more frequency than ever, the world is riddled with sin as there are almost five hundred legal casinos in the United States, abortion is not only legal in many countries but also promoted in some, genocide and war are more prevalent than ever and even the United States, God’s Nation, seems to be faltering in many ways due to the conflict in the Middle East through George W. Bush’s faithful control. What will come of this and where do you stand?
