In Greek, the word "apokalypsis" does not denote the end of the world. It simply means a "revelation" or "a removal of a covering." Revelation 1:10, 4:2, 17:3 and 21:10 describe its author, John, as being "in the Spirit" as he received the revelatory visons. The Greek word for "Spirit" is "pneuma," literally meaning wind. Thus, this features the winds to bring forth the Revelation.

This piece is based on Paul’s prophetic writing to the church at Thessalonica, "For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night." (2 Thessalonians 5:2, NASB) The world sleeps unsettledly as wars and rumors of wars circulate. Tension mounts and relaxes. From no where, as loud and high trumpet blasts followed by panic and the removal of those who took the high road. After realizing what happened, those left behind struggle through anger, chaos and confusion, which eventually fades back into the sleepless night.
