China and the Storm

 

If the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet,
so that the people are not warned,
and the sword comes, and takes any one of them;
that man is taken away in his iniquity,
but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
(Ezekiel 33:6)

 

AT a conference I spoke at recently, someone said to me, “I didn’t know you were so funny. I thought you would be kind of a somber and serious person.” I share this little anecdote with you because I think it might be helpful to some readers to know that I am not some dark figure crouched over a computer screen, looking for the worst in humanity as I weave together conspiracies of dread and doom. I’m a father of eight children and a grandfather of three (with one on the way). I think about fishing and football, camping and giving concerts. Our home is a temple of laughter. We love to suck the marrow of life from the present moment.Continue reading

The Spirit of Judgment

 

ALMOST six years ago, I wrote about a spirit of fear that would begin to assail the world; a fear that would begin to grip nations, families, and marriages, children and adults alike. One of my readers, a very smart and devout woman, has a daughter who for many years has been given a window into the spiritual realm. In 2013, she had a prophetic dream:Continue reading

You Make a Difference


JUST so you know… you make a big difference. Your prayers, your notes of encouragement, the Masses you have said, the rosaries you pray, the wisdom you reflect, the confirmations you share… it makes a difference.Continue reading

The Great Transition

 

THE world is in a period of great transition: the end of this present era and beginning of the next. This is no mere turning of the calendar. It is an epochal change of biblical proportions. Nearly everyone can sense it to one degree or another. The world is disturbed. The planet is groaning. Divisions are multiplying. The Barque of Peter is listing. The moral order is overturning. A great shaking of everything has begun. In the words of Russian Patriarch Kirill:

…we are entering a critical period in the course of human civilization. This can already be seen with the naked eye. You have to be blind not to notice the approaching awe-inspiring moments in history that the apostle and evangelist John was talking about in the Book of Revelation.

The Now Word in 2020

Mark & Lea Mallett, Winter 2020

 

IF you would have told me 30 years ago that, in 2020, I would be writing articles on the Internet that would be read all over the world… I would have laughed. For one, I did not consider myself an author. Two, I was at the beginning of what became an award winning television career in news. Third, my heart’s desire was really to make music, especially love songs and ballads. But here I sit now, speaking to thousands of Christians across the planet about the extraordinary times we live in and the remarkable plans God has after these days of sorrow are through. Continue reading

This is Not a Test

 

ON the verge of a global pandemic? A massive locust plague and food crisis in the Horn of Africa and Pakistan? A global economy on the precipice of collapse? Plummeting insect numbers threatening the ‘collapse of nature’? Nations on the verge of another terrible war? Socialist parties rising in once democratic countries? Totalitarian laws continuing to crush freedom of speech and religion? The Church, reeling from scandal and encroaching heresies, on the verge of schism?Continue reading

The Death of Woman

 

When the freedom to be creative becomes the freedom to create oneself,
then necessarily the Maker himself is denied and ultimately
man too is stripped of his dignity as a creature of God,
as the image of God at the core of his being.
…when God is denied, human dignity also disappears.
—POPE BENEDICT XVI, Christmas Address to the Roman Curia
December 21st, 20112; vatican.va

 

IN the classic fairytale of The Emperor’s New Clothes, two con men come to town and offer to weave new clothing for the emperor—but with special properties: the clothes become invisible to those who are either incompetent or stupid. The emperor hires the men, but of course, they had made no clothing at all as they pretend to dress him. However, no one, including the emperor, wants to admit that they see nothing and, therefore, be seen as stupid. So everyone gushes at the fine clothing they cannot see whilst the emperor struts down the streets completely naked. Finally, a little child cries out, “But he isn’t wearing anything at all!” Still, the deluded emperor ignores the child and continues his absurd procession.Continue reading

What a Beautiful Name it is

I WOKE this morning with a beautiful dream and a song in my heart—the power of it still flowing through my soul like a river of life. I was singing the name of Jesus, leading a congregation in the song What a Beautiful Name. You can listen to this live version of it below as you continue to read:

When Communism Returns

 

Communism, then, is coming back again on the Western world,
because something died in the Western world—namely, 
the strong faith of men in the God that made them.
—Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen, “Communism in America”, cf. youtube.com

 

WHEN Our Lady allegedly spoke with the seers in Garabandal, Spain in the 1960’s, she left a specific marker as to when major events would begin to unravel in the world:Continue reading
