The Breaking of the Seals

 

This writing has been on the forefront of my thoughts since the day it was written (and it was written in fear and trembling!) It is perhaps a summary of where we are at, and where we are about to go. The Seals of Revelation are likened to the "labor pains" Jesus spoke of. They are a harbinger of the proximity of the "Day of the Lord", of retribution and reward on a cosmic scale. This was first published September 14th, 2007. It is the starting point for the Seven Year Trial series which was written earlier this year…

 

FEAST OF THE EXALTATION OF THE HOLY CROSS/
VIGIL OF OUR LADY OF SORROWS

 

THERE is a word which has come to me, a rather strong word:

The seals are about to be broken.

That is, the seals of the Book of Revelation.

The Perfect Storm


"The Perfect Storm", source unknown

 

First published March 26th, 2008.

 

From subsistence farmers eating rice in Ecuador to gourmets feasting on escargot in France, consumers worldwide face rising food prices in what analysts call a perfect storm of conditions. Freak weather is a factor. But so are dramatic changes in the global economy, including higher oil prices, lower food reserves and growing consumer demand in China and India.NBC News online, March 24th, 2008

 THE COLLAPSE OF THE ORDER

As I drove through the United States two years ago on a concert tour, I marveled at the quality of living I witnessed in nearly every state, from the caliber of the roads, to the abundance of material wealth. But I was taken aback by the words I heard in my heart:

It is an illusion, a lifestyle which has been borrowed.

I was left with the sense that it was all about to come crashing down.

She Gave Birth to a Son


Baby Brad in his big brother’s arms

 

SHE did it! My bride gave birth to our eighth child, and fifth son: Bradley Gabriel Mallett. The little duffer weighed in at 9 pounds and 3 ounces. He’s the spitting image of his older sister Denise when she was born. Everyone’s very excited, very amazed at the blessing which came home last night. Both Lea and I thank you for your letters and prayers!

Revelation 11:19


"Be Not Afraid", by Tommy Christopher Canning

 

This writing was placed on my heart last night… the woman clothed with the sun appearing in our times, labouring, about to give birth. What I didn’t know was that this morning, my wife was going into labour! I will let you know the outcome…

There is much on my heart these days, but the battle is very thick, and writing has been as easy as jogging in a neck-high swamp.  The winds of change are blowing hard, and this writing, I believe, may explain why… Peace be with you! Let us hold one another in prayer that in these times of change, we will shine with the holiness proper to our calling as sons and daughters of a victorious and humble King!

Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen within his temple; and there were flashes of lightning, voices, peals of thunder, an earthquake, and heavy hail. (Rev 11:19) 

THE sign of this ark of the covenant appears before a great battle between the dragon and the Church, that is, a persecution. This ark, and the symbolism it carries, is all part of that "sign."

The Desert of Temptation


 

 

I KNOW many of you—according to your letters—are going through tremendous battles right now. This seems consistent with just about anyone I know who is striving for holiness. I think it is a good sign, a sign of the times… the dragon, thrashing his tail at the Woman-Church as the final confrontation enters its most pivotal moments. Although this was written for Lent, the meditation below is likely as pertinent now as it was then… if not more. 

First published February 11th, 2008:

 

I want to share with you a portion of a letter I just received:

I’ve been feeling destroyed over recent weaknesses…  Things have been going great and I was excited with joy in my heart for Lent. And then as soon as Lent began, I felt unworthy and undeserving to be in any relationship with Christ. I fell into sin and then self-hatred set in. I was feeling that I might as well do nothing for Lent because I am a hypocrite. I drove up our driveway and was feeling this emptiness…

Resist

 

First Published August 11th, 2007.

 

AS you try to respond to Jesus’ call to follow him in these chaotic times, to renounce your earthly attachments, to voluntarily dispossess yourself of unneeded things and material pursuits, to resist the temptations which are boldly advertised everywhere, expect to enter into a fierce battle. But do not let this discourage you!

Mark presenting his music to Pope Benedict XVI

 

JUST over a year ago, my wife and I suddenly felt called to move from our home to a different province in Canada. Within weeks, we found a small town where we felt drawn to a particular home. We sold our house and whatever possessions we didn’t need, loaded up our seven children, and were followed by a thunderstorm the entire six hour journey. When we arrived at our home, the storm stopped directly over our house, and remained there for three hours, putting on a spectacular lightning show. It seemed symbolic of the Great Storm gathering on the horizon of the world… a storm for which Heaven has been preparing us, and which now, has arrived.

A Prophecy About to Pass?

 

ONE month ago, I published The Hour of Decision. In it, I stated that the coming elections in North America are pivotal based primarily upon one issue: abortion. As I write this, Psalm 95 comes to mind again:

Forty years I endured that generation. I said, "They are a people whose hearts go astray and they do not know my ways." So I swore in my anger, "They shall not enter my rest."

It was forty years ago in 1968 that Pope Paul VI presented Humanae Vitae. In that encyclical letter, there is a prophetic warning which I believe is about to come to pass in its fullness. The Holy Father said:

THE COMING ERA OF PEACE — PART III 
 

 

 

THE first Mass reading this past Sunday (October 5th, 2008) resounded in my heart like thunder. I heard the sigh of a God mourning over the state of His Betrothed:

What more was there to do for my vineyard that I had not done? Why, when I looked for the crop of grapes, did it bring forth wild grapes? Now, I will let you know what I mean to do with my vineyard: take away its hedge, give it to grazing, break through its wall, let it be trampled! (Isaiah 5:4-5)

But this too is an act of love. Read on to understand why the purification which has now arrived is not only necessary, but part of God’s divine plan…
