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

2020: A Watchman’s Perspective

 

AND so that was 2020. 

It is interesting to read in the secular realm how glad people are to put the year behind them — as if 2021 will soon return to “normal.” But you, my readers, know this is not going to be the case. And not only because global leaders have already announced themselves that we will never return to “normal,” but, more importantly, Heaven has announced that the Triumph of Our Lord and Lady are well on their way — and Satan knows this, knows his time is short. So we are now entering the decisive Clash of the Kingdoms — the satanic will vs. the Divine Will. What a glorious time to be alive!Continue reading

The Middle Coming

Pentecôte (Pentecost), by Jean II Restout (1732)

 

ONE of the great mysteries of the “end times” being unveiled at this hour is the reality that Jesus Christ is coming, not in the flesh, but in Spirit to establish His Kingdom and reign among all the nations. Yes, Jesus will come in His glorified flesh eventually, but His final coming is reserved for that literal “last day” on earth when time will cease. So, when several seers around the world continue to say, “Jesus is coming soon” to establish His Kingdom in an “Era of Peace,” what does this mean? Is it biblical and is it in Catholic Tradition?
