About this event
The name "ABADDON"
"And they had a king ouer them, which is the Angel of the bottomlesse pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in th e Greeke tongue hath his name Apollyon." KJV (1611)
The Hebrew word "abaddon" is thought having its origin in ancient Semitic, "abad" which means destroy or perish. In Revelation, a fallen angel bearing this ominous name appears as a governer of chaos.
("Abaddon"... What is destroyed and perished by the angel of abyss? Coming battle in Okinawa may reveal the truth....)
It's time to move.

The time has come, liberate all of your potential. Comrades of Resistance, gather in Okinawa!
