The Coming of the Kingdom of God

eucharist1.jpg


THERE has been a danger in the past to see the “thousand year” reign described by St. John in Revelation as a literal reign on earth—where Christ dwells physically in person in a world-wide political kingdom, or even that the saints take global power. On this matter, the Church has been unequivocal:

The Antichrist’s deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgment. The Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism, especially the “intrinsically perverse” political form of a secular messianism. Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC),n.676

We have seen forms of this “secular messianism” in the ideologies of Marxism and Communism, for example, where dictators have attempted to create a society where all are equal: equally wealthy, equally privileged, and sadly as it always turns out, equally enslaved to the government. Likewise, we see on the other side of the coin what Pope Francis calls a “new tyranny” whereby Capitalism is presenenting “a new and ruthless guise in the idolatry of money and the dictatorship of an impersonal economy lacking a truly human purpose.” [1]cf. Evangelii Gaudium, n. 56, 55  (Once again, I wish to raise my voice in warning in the clearest possible terms: we are headed once again toward an “intrinsically perverse” geo-political-economic “beast”—this time, globally.)

Embracing Hope is Back!

SHOULD you store up supplies? Should you take the vaccine? Should you move to the countryside? These are the questions readers and viewers alike have been asking. In Episode 5 of Embracing Hope, Mark answers these questions with eye-opening facts and practical advice.

This episode is available for the general public to watch at www.embracinghope.tv. Thanks to everyone for patiently waiting for this webcast to resume!

———————————

The Second Edition of Mark’s riveting new book, The Final Confrontation, is now available. The feedback to Mark’s first book has been quick and strong. Writes one reader,

Mark has done such a wonderful job of gathering all of the pieces of the puzzle and presenting them to us so that we could see the full picture in one place—awesome! I love this book. I love his writing and I wanted to say what a wonderful book and read this is. —American reader

The Final Confrontation is a concise summary of Mark’s writings that draws upon the powerful voice of the Magisterium, geling a vision for our times that is unmistakable. The priest whom Blessed Mother Teresa asked to co-found the Missionary of Charity Fathers, Fr. Joseph Langford, writes:

Mark Mallett has written a must-read book, an indispensable vademecum for the decisive times ahead, and a well-researched survival guide to the challenges looming over the Church, our nation, and the world. Indeed, the "hour is upon us to wake from sleep"—and these inspired pages provide the clarion call we need, as they draw on Scripture, on the Popes and Fathers of the Church, on world events, and on the personal experiences of many who, like the author, have felt the urgency of the Lord’s mandate to prepare.

The book skillfully explains the quickening we have all sensed, the unprecedented acceleration of world-changing events, presenting them in biblical context, and shedding light on their true significance. The Final Confrontation will prepare the reader, as no other work I have read, to face the times before us with courage, light, and grace—confident that the battle—and especially this ultimate battle—"belongs to the Lord."

(Fr. Langford has recently taken seriously ill. Please pray for him!)

The Coming Dominion of the Church


A Mustard Tree

 

 

IN Evil, Too, Has a Name, I wrote that the goal of Satan is to collapse civilization into his hands, into a structure and system rightly called “a beast.” This is what St. John the Evangelist described in a vision he received where this beast causes “all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave” to be forced into a system whereby they cannot buy or sell anything without a “mark” (Rev 13:16-17). The prophet Daniel also saw a vision of this beast similar to St. John’s (Dan 7:-8) and interpreted a dream of King Nebuchadnezzar in which this beast was seen as a statue made up of different materials, symbolic of different kings who form alliances. The context for all of these dreams and visions, while having dimensions of fulfillment in the prophet’s own time, is also for the future:

Understand, O son of man, that the vision is for the time of the end. (Dan 8:17)

A time when, after the beast is destroyed, God will establish His spiritual Kingdom to the ends of the earth.Continue reading

Prepare!

Look Up! II — Michael D. O’Brien

 

This meditation was first published November 4th, 2005. The Lord often makes words such as these urgent and seemingly imminent, not because there is not time, but so as to give us time! This word now comes back to me at this hour with an even greater urgency. It is a word many souls throughout the world are hearing (so don’t feel that you are alone!) It is simple, yet powerful: Prepare!

 

—THE FIRST PETAL—

THE leaves have fallen, the grass has turned, and the winds of change are blowing.

Can you feel it?

It seems as though “something” is on the horizon, not only for Canada, but for all of humanity.

Homecoming
Homecoming, by Michael D. O’Brien

 

Written on the journey home…


AS our plane rises with the cumulous clouds into the atmosphere where angels and freedom dwell, my mind begins to drift back over my time in Europe…

———-

It wasn’t that long an evening, maybe an hour and a half. I sang a few songs, and spoke the message that was on my heart for the people of Killarney, Ireland. Afterwards, I prayed over the individuals who came forward, asking Jesus to pour out His Spirit again upon the mostly middle-aged and senior adults who came forward. They came, like little children, hearts open, ready to receive. As I prayed, an older man began to lead the small group in songs of praise. When it was all over, we sat looking at one another, our souls filled with the Spirt and joy. They didn’t want to leave. I didn’t either. But necessity carried me out the front doors with my hungry entourage.
