The Great Divide

 

I have come to set the earth on fire,
and how I wish it were already blazing!…

Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth?
No, I tell you, but rather division.
From now on a household of five will be divided,
three against two and two against three…

(Luke 12:49-53)

So a division occurred in the crowd because of him.
(John 7:43)

 

I LOVE that word from Jesus: “I have come to set the earth on fire and how I wish it were already blazing!” Our Lord wants a People who are on fire with love. A People whose life and presence ignites others to repent and seek their Savior, thereby expanding the mystical Body of Christ.

And yet, Jesus follows this word with a warning that this Divine Fire will actually divide. It doesn’t take a theologian to understand why. Jesus said, “I am the truth” and we see daily how His truth divides us. Even Christians who love the truth can recoil when that sword of truth pierces their own heart. We can become proud, defensive, and argumentative when faced with the truth of ourselves. And is it not true that today we see the Body of Christ being broken and divided again in a most egregious way as bishop opposes bishop, cardinal stands against cardinal — just as Our Lady predicted at Akita?

 

The Great Purification

The past two months whilst driving back and forth numerous times between Canadian provinces to move my family, I have had a lot of hours to reflect on my ministry, what is happening in the world, what is happening in my own heart. In summary, we are passing through one of the greatest purifications of humanity since the Flood. That means we are also being sifted like wheat — everyone, from pauper to pope. Continue reading

This is the Hour…

 

ON THE SOLEMNITY OF ST. JOSEPH,
HUSBAND OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY

 

SO much is happening, so quickly these days — just as the Lord said it would.[1]cf. Warp Speed, Shock and Awe Indeed, the closer we draw to the “Eye of the Storm”, the faster the winds of change are blowing.  This man-made Storm is moving at an ungodly pace to “shock and awe” humanity into a place of subservience — all “for the common good”, of course, under the nomenclature of the “Great Reset” in order to “build back better.” The messianists behind this new utopia are beginning to pull out all the tools for their revolution — war, economic turmoil, famine, and plagues. It is truly coming upon many “like a thief in the night”.[2]1 Thess 5:12 The operative word is “thief”, which is at the heart of this neo-communistic movement (see Isaiah’s Prophecy of Global Communism).

And all this would be a cause for the man without faith to tremble. As St. John heard in a vision 2000 years ago of the people of this hour saying:

“Who can compare with the beast or who can fight against it?” (Rev 13:4)

But for those whose faith is in Jesus, they are going to see the miracles of Divine Providence soon, if not already…Continue reading

An Unapologetic Apocalyptic View

 

…there is none more blind than he who does not want to see,
and despite the signs of the times foretold,
even those who have faith
refuse to look at what is happening. 
Our Lady to Gisella Cardia, October 26th, 2021 

 

I AM supposed to be embarrassed by this article’s title — ashamed to utter the phrase “end times” or quote the Book of Revelation much less dare to mention Marian apparitions. Such antiquities supposedly belong in the dust bin of medieval superstitions alongside archaic beliefs in “private revelation”, “prophecy” and those ignominious expressions of “the mark of the beast” or “Antichrist.” Yes, better to leave them to that garish era when Catholic churches billowed with incense as they churned out saints, priests evangelized pagans, and commoners actually believed that faith could drive away plagues and demons. In those days, statues and icons not only adorned churches but public buildings and homes. Imagine that. The “dark ages” — enlightened atheists call them.Continue reading

The Greatest Lie

 

THIS morning after prayer, I felt moved to re-read a crucial meditation I wrote some seven years ago called Hell UnleashedI was tempted to simply resend that article to you today, as there is so much in it that was prophetic and critical for what has now unfolded over the past year and a half. How true those words have become! 

However, I will just summarize some key points and then move on to a new “now word” that came to me during prayer today… Continue reading

The Coming Counterfeit

The Mask, by Michael D. O’Brien

 

First published, April, 8th 2010.

 

THE warning in my heart continues to grow about a coming deception, which may in fact be the one described in 2 Thess 2:11-13. What follows after the so-called “illumination” or “warning” is not only a brief but powerful period of evangelization, but a dark counter-evangelization that will, in many ways, be just as convincing. Part of the preparation for that deception is knowing beforehand that it is coming:

Indeed, the Lord GOD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants, the prophets… I have said all this to you to keep you from falling away. They will put you out of the synagogues; indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God. And they will do this because they have not known the Father, nor me. But I have said these things to you, that when their hour comes you may remember that I told you of them. (Amos 3:7; John 16:1-4)

Satan not only knows what is coming, but has been planning for it for a long time. It is exposed in the language being used…Continue reading

The Rise of the Antichurch

 

JOHN PAUL II predicted in 1976 that we were facing a “final confrontation’ between the Church and the anti-Church. That false church is now coming into view, based in neo-paganism and a cult-like trust in science…Continue reading

Evil Will Have Its Day

 

For behold, darkness shall cover the earth,
and thick darkness the peoples;
but the LORD will arise upon you,
and his glory will be seen upon you.
And nations shall come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your rising.
(Isaiah 60:1-3)

[Russia] will spread her errors throughout the world,
causing wars and persecutions of the Church.
The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer;
various nations will be annihilated
. 

—visionary Sr. Lucia in a letter to the Holy Father,
May 12th, 1982; The Message of Fatimavatican.va

 

BY NOW, some of you have heard me repeat for over 16 years St. John Paul II’s warning in 1976 that “We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church…”[1]Cardinal Karol Wojtyla (JOHN PAUL II ), at the Eucharistic Congress, Philadelphia, PA; August 13, 1976; cf. Catholic Online But now, dear reader, you are alive to witness this final Clash of the Kingdoms unfolding at this hour. It is the clash of the Kingdom of the Divine Will that Christ will establish to the ends of the earth when this trial is over… versus the kingdom of neo-Communism that is rapidly spreading across the globe — a kingdom of the human will. This is the ultimate fulfillment of the prophecy of Isaiah when “darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples”; when a Diabolical Disorientation will deceive many and a Strong Delusion will be permitted to pass through the world like a Spiritual Tsunami. “The greatest chastisement,” said Jesus to Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta…Continue reading

On Secular Messianism

 

AS America turns another page in its history as the entire world looks on, a wake of division, controversy and failed expectations raises some crucial questions for all… are people misplacing their hope, that is, in leaders rather than their Creator?Continue reading

The False Peace and Security

 

For you yourselves know very well
that the day of the Lord will come like a thief at night.
When people are saying, “Peace and security,”
then sudden disaster comes upon them,
like labor pains upon a pregnant woman,
and they will not escape.
(1 Thess 5:2-3)

 

JUST as the Saturday night vigil Mass heralds Sunday, what the Church calls the “day of the Lord” or “Lord’s day”[1]CCC, n. 1166, so too, the Church has entered the vigil hour of the Great Day of the Lord.[2]Meaning, we are on the eve of the Sixth Day And this Day of the Lord, taught the Early Church Fathers, is not a twenty-four hour day at the end of the world, but a triumphant period of time when the enemies of God will be vanquished, the Antichrist or “Beast” is cast into the lake of fire, and Satan chained for a “thousand years.”[3]cf. Rethinking the End TimesContinue reading
