Control! Control!

Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640)

 

 

I took a few days off this week to be with family. During that time, this writing from thirteen years ago was ever present on my mind. As I look upon the daily headlines, it is clear that we are seeing this word rapidly fulfilled and in real-time. This writing is a trumpet blast for Christians to prepare themselves for the coming test of their faith. It is not a call to be afraid, but to be faithful. By God’s grace, I hope to continue writing and preparing you for the Great Deception that is already here.

Black and White

On the memorial of Saint Charles Lwanga and Companions,
Martyred by fellow Africans

Teacher, we know that you are a truthful man
and that you are not concerned with anyone’s opinion.
You do not regard a person’s status
but teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. (Yesterday’s Gospel)

 

GROWING up on the Canadian prairies in a country that had long embraced multiculturalism as part of her creed, my classmates were from nearly every background on the planet. One friend was of aboriginal blood, his skin brownish red. My polish friend, who barely spoke English, was a pale white. Another playmate was Chinese with yellowish skin. The kids we played with up the street, one who would eventually deliver our third daughter, were dark East Indians. Then there were our Scottish and Irish friends, pink-skinned and freckled. And our Filipino neighbours around the corner were a soft brown. When I worked in radio, I grew in good friendships with a Sikh and a Muslim. In my television days, a Jewish comedian and I became great friends, eventually attending his wedding. And my adopted niece, the same age as my youngest son, is a beautiful African American girl from Texas. In other words, I was and am colorblind. Continue reading

Warnings in the Wind

Our Lady of Sorrows, painting by Tianna (Mallett) Williams

 

The past three days, the winds here have been unceasing and strong. All day yesterday, we were under a “Wind Warning.” When I started to reread this post just now, I knew I had to republish it. The warning herein is crucial and must be heeded regarding those who are “playing in sin.” The followup to this writing is “Hell Unleashed“, which gives practical advice on closing the cracks in one’s spiritual life so that Satan cannot get a stronghold. These two writings are a serious warning about turning from sin… and going to confession while we still can. First published in 2012…Continue reading

Apocalypse… Not?

 

RECENTLY, some Catholic intellects have been downplaying if not outright dismissing any notion that our generation could be living in the “end times.” Mark Mallett and Prof. Daniel O’Connor team up in their first webcast to respond with a reasoned rebuttal to the naysayers of this hour…Continue reading

The Real “Witchcraft”

 

…your merchants were the great men of the earth,
all nations were led astray by your magic potion. (Rev 18:23)

Greek for “magic potion” : φαρμακείᾳ (pharmakeia) —
the use of medicine, drugs or spells

Awakening to the Storm

 

I HAVE received numerous letters over the years from people saying, “My grandmother talked about these times decades ago.” But many of those grandmothers have long since passed on. And then there was the explosion of the prophetic in the 1990’s with the messages of Fr. Stefano Gobbi, Medjugorje, and other prominent seers. But as the turn of the millennium came and went and expectations of imminent apocalyptic changes never materialized, a certain sleepiness to the times, if not cynicism, set in. Prophecy in the Church became a point of suspicion; bishops were quick to marginalize private revelation; and those who did follow it seemed to be on the fringe of the Church’s life in shrinking Marian and Charismatic circles.Continue reading

A Prophetic Webcast…?

 

THE bulk of this writing apostolate has been relaying “the now word” that is being spoken through the popes, the Mass readings, Our Lady, or visionaries throughout the world. But it has also involved speaking the now word that has been put on my own heart. As Our Blessed Lady once said to St. Catherine Labouré:Continue reading

Science Will Not Save Us

 

‘Civilizations collapse slowly, just slowly enough
so you think it might not really happen.
And just fast enough so that
there’s little time to maneuver.’

The Plague Journal, p. 160, a novel
by Michael D. O’Brien

 

WHO doesn’t love science? The discoveries of our universe, whether the intricacies of DNA or the passing of comets, continue to fascinate. How things work, why they work, where they come from—these are perennial questions from deep within the human heart. We want to know and understand our world. And at one time, we even wanted to know the One behind it, as Einstein himself stated:Continue reading

11:11

 

This writing from nine years ago came to mind a couple of days ago. I wasn’t going to republish it until I received a wild confirmation this morning (read to the end!) The following was first published on January 11th, 2011 at 13:33…

 

FOR some time now, I have spoken with the occasional reader who is befuddled as to why they are suddenly seeing the number 11:11 or 1:11, or 3:33, 4:44, etc. Whether glancing at a clock, a cellphone, television, page number, etc. they are suddenly seeing this number “everywhere.” For instance, they won’t look at the clock all day, but suddenly feel the urge to look up, and there it is again.

Spiraling Toward the Eye

 

SOLEMNITY OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY,
THE MOTHER OF GOD

 

The following is the “now word” on my heart on this Feast of the Mother of God. It is adapted from the Third Chapter of my book The Final Confrontation about how time is accelerating. Do you feel it? Perhaps this is why…

—————

But the hour is coming, and is now here… 
(John 4:23)

 

IT may seem that to apply the words of the Old Testament prophets as well as the book of Revelation to our day is perhaps presumptuous or even fundamentalist. Yet, the words of the prophets such as Ezekiel, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Malachi and St. John, to name but a few, are now burning in my heart in a way they did not in the past. Many people I have met in my travels say the same thing, that the readings of the Mass have taken on a powerful meaning and relevance that they never felt before.Continue reading
