We are to love God and our neighbor as ourselves.

The Apocalypse is written from beginning to end of the history of the world by God Himself. It includes all the ages of the world. It also includes all people that have ever existed or will ever exist. God and His Christ are the only Judge of all people. We aren't. We are to love God with our whole heart and soul and depth of being and our neighbor as ourselves.

See here for the
Book of the Apocalypse.

A brief explanation of the ages.

There are covenants and ages (biblical days), which by God's providence, all point to and are summed up in the pre-existent covenant of salvation given in Christ Himself on His Most Holy Cross. See here for a summation:

Seven Ages:

St. Isidore -- The First and Second ages of the World

St. Isidore -- The Third Age of the World and The Fourth Age of the World

St. Isidore -- The Fifth Age of the World and Sixth Age until St. John

St. Isidore -- The Sixth age of the World until St. Ambrose

St. Isidore -- The Sixth Age of the World until 616 A.D.

The Church Fathers, especially including St. Irenaeus (180 A.D.) and St. Augustine (d. 430 A.D.), and the Old Testament prophets, especially St. Ezekiel, by God's grace, saw the ages of the world in a literal and mystical sense at the exact same time. The following is a summation of what they taught. St. Isadore of Seville (d. 636 A.D.), above, based all of what he wrote about the ages of the world on what the Church Father's before him had taught. St. Isadore is the last of the Church Fathers in the West (Doctors of the Church are a different and mostly later grouping).

A Mystical prayer based on the Catholic Old Testament book of Wisdom.

Baruch Adonai Yahweh Elohim eth He Creator and Artificer of all our only

He Spirit absolute intelligence Holy unique

manifold subtle agile

clear unstained certain

not baneful loving the good keen

unhampered beneficent kindly

firm secure tranquil

all-powerful all-seeing and pervading all spirits though they be intelligent pure
and very subtle seven holy elect blessed orders

of mighty Doxas holy Seraphim, Cherubim, Kuriotetes, Arches especially Saint
Michael and Saint Gabriel holy Archangelos

Exousias, Dunameis, Angelos

uncreated Wisdom mobile beyond all motion He penetrates and pervades all things by reason of His purity for He is an aura of the might of God and a pure effusion of the Glory of the Almighty therefore nought that is sullied enters into Him for

He is the refulgence of eternal light the

spotless mirror of the energy of God the image of his goodness he who is one can

do all things and renews everything while Himself perduing by His breath

passing into holy souls from

age to age he produces friends of God and prophets for there is not God loves be

it not one who dwells with wisdom for he is fairer than the sun and surpasses

every constellation of the stars compared to light he takes precedence for that

indeed night might supplant but wickedness prevails not over wisdom

indeed he reaches from end to end mightily and governs all

things well.
