As soon as the angelic host finished uttering the
Word overcome, the ebony chest began to glisten
even more than in its descent. The brightness was
so intense, that I was forced to close my eyes. When I
opened them , I had lost my vision. For a few minutes, I
stood in complete darkness, I heard the sound of what
seems like a storm. Gradually, I regain my sight. The
wind increased in intensity. It had the appearance of a
whirlwind it sparkled with brilliance as it spunned.
It had the appearance of a giant funnel. Suddenly, it
began to raise the ebony chest from the seashore. I
was amazed to see how the whirlwind whirled without
whirring the ebony chest as it raised through the
whirlwind without spinning. Suddenly, the visitor of
light began to flap his powerful wings. He followed the
ebony chest. I lifted my eyes in total amazement as It
departed in the same direction it had descended. I heard
the sounds of many trumpets as I beheld the entire
phenomenon. I also heard the sound of a powerful
thunder which shook the ground I stood. The coolness
of tiny raindrops began to fall refreshing my skin.
Within seconds, the most gigantic rainbow appeared. The
rainbow encompassed the entire range of the mountains
not far. The majestic rainbow sparkled as it exhibited
its multicolored array. It spoke, I mean not with words
but it certainly spoke to me in the manner its seven
apparent, when each color began to glow. White
first followed by green, black, red, yellow, blue, orange
and purple. I noticed that every time each color glowed
to alternately radiate the center color which was black
glistened with the same radiance as the ebony chest. I
understood this to be its meaning.The beauty and its
brilliance is beyond my description. The funneled
shaped whirlwind continued its ascent as it made its
way to the center of the rainbow. It thundered again;
and my heart was beating son fast I thought I would
die. All the time, I was able to hear the flapping of the
angel’s wing as it rose through the whirlwind. It
thundered for third time.The majestic being spoke for
the last time. What amazed me was, that although the angel
was very far from the seashore by now, I heard clearly
and distinctively ; he said in a loving and tender voice:
“Martin”, upon uttering my name, it echoed
through the mountains not far.
“Martin”, said the angel for the second
time. His voice echoed through the ocean causing a
giant wave whose fury died as it reached shore.
“Martin”, he said for the third time and
“A legacy of love and non-violence has begun.
Remember, the content of the ebony chest by the sea,
!Peace be with thee and thy race”.
Within seconds, a sense of peace and joy overwhelmed
me. I wept uncontrollably .Again, I was alone by the
seashore, and with every fiber of my soul I knew that a
new dawn had approached.
