Come Holy Spirit, come by means of the powerful intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, your well-beloved spouse. Give us discernment, wisdom, understanding, guidance and protection. St. Michael, clear a path for the Holy Trinity to communicate with us, and protect us from all evil. We pray this in Jesus’ most Holy Name. Amen.
Parameters of the Catholic Church In Respect of the End of Time
The Catholic Church says relatively little about future events leading up to Christ's Second Coming. Many of her teachings are rejections (either implicit or explicit), not affirmations, of particular beliefs such as the dispensational dichotomy between the Church and
Remain Vigilant at All Times
Holy Scripture describes a three and one half year period known as the Tribulation which will be dominated by a most charismatic, duplicitous and tyrannical man. Initially, he will appear as a man of peace. He will seize control of the European Union, then the United Nations and later, the world. He will claim to be Jesus Christ having arrived the second time, and is known in Holy Scripture as the Antichrist. At the beginning of the Tribulation, he will declare himself a god and ruler of the one-world government, and will be the worst tyrant and persecutor of Christians in history. At such time, Satan will unleash his plan to deceive mankind into continuing its rebellion against God; and God’s just judgment will descend upon mankind for its wicked, unrepentant ways in order to prepare the world for the second coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ in glorious victory to usher in the Era of Peace.
"But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.” (Mt 24:36) Indeed, no one knows the date of the end of time; but Holy Scripture tells us of signs that will precede it, and Jesus told us to remain vigilant at all times. "But take heed to yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a snare; for it will come upon all who dwell upon the face of the whole earth. But watch at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that will take place, and to stand before the Son of man." (Lk 21:34-36)
Signs of the Times
“He answered them, "When it is evening, you say, 'It will be fair weather; for the sky is red.' And in the morning, 'It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.' You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.” (Mt 16:2-3)
Holy Scripture tells us to look for the following signs to occur shortly before the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ [#357]:
Revived Roman Empire - The book of Daniel predicts that the revived Roman
Empire is to be in existence at the time of the Tribulation of the Antichrist
(Dn 2:33-34 & 2:41-44). In Daniel, the revived
· One-world government – to make way for one-world government the Illuminati (a group of 13 wealthy elitist families who control international finance and all nations from the shadows) have bankrupted the former USSR, and are now doing the same to the remaining superpower, the USA. (Dn 7 & 11) [Refer to #387, 386.]
· Private prophecy will increase – Private prophecy (both approved and yet-to-be approved by the Church as worthy of belief) has increased exponentially in recent times, and it confirms that the times have arrived.
· As it was in the days of Noah & Lot – The Blessed Mother told us via a number of private prophets (e.g. Fr. Stefano Gobbi – IMPRIMATURS; yet-to-be-approved (B)) that the world today is worse than in the days of Noah. NB: the rise in open homosexuality, human sacrifice via abortion promoted by the state, cloning, etc. Indeed, love has grown cold; and both daily business and governmental activities are filled with deceit, misrepresentation, fraud, and violations of trust. (Lk 17; Mt 24)
· Alliance of certain Arab Nations with Russia against the Jews – The Arab nations together with Russia are unified in opposition against the modern state of Israel. (Ez 38) [Refer to #416]
· The Euphrates River is drying up - Due to prolonged drought and Turkish and Syrian dams upstream and the related diversion of water, the Euphrates River is drying up as predicted to make way for the “kings of the East” (Rv 16) [Refer to #405]
· Terrorism is being used as a ruse to entrap mankind - (NB: US Patriot Acts I & II, the John Warner Act, the Military Commissions Act, et al). Soon terrorism will be used to promote, and later force, the implantation of the Mark of the Beast (the subdermal microchip) - (Is 24 & Rv 13). [Refer to #415]
· The Mark of the Beast required to buy and sell – The new Health Care Law of the USA contemplates the use of the Mark of the Beast (which is the subdermal microchip). The satellite system is in place, and Microsoft developed the necessary software. Smart cards may precede the use of the chip. (Rv 13)
· The Gospel preached throughout the world – The Greek word for “world” used in Mt 24:14 and Rom 10:18 refer to the then-known world of the Roman Empire. Rom 10:18 is clear: “But I ask, have they not heard? Indeed they have; for "Their voice has gone out to all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.” [Refer to “Has Matthew 24:14 been realized? Definitely, Yes” at the Call To Holiness site.].
· Persecution of Christianity will increase – No other religion is being attacked like that of Christianity. It will increase significantly very soon, and the Church will go out the same way that she came in: via the catacombs. (Dn 8, Jn 16, Lk 21, Mk 13 & Mt 24)
“And brother will deliver up brother to death, and
the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put
to death... .” (Mk 13:12) The US Patriot
Acts contain provisions in which anyone having knowledge of the location of “enemy
combatants” must turn them into authorities, or be imprisoned. The
· False messiahs and false prophets will arise – There have been many persons claiming to be the returning Christ during the last several years; including as of this writing, a man in Florida, a man in Papua New Guinea, and a man who calls himself, Lord Maitreya (discussed below) (Mt 24). Through Fr. Stefano Gobbi, Our Lady stated that the Great Apostasy exists today, and will break out into the open soon. The words of Pope John Paul II indicate this, as well.
· Significant increase in natural disasters - The insurance industry has reported record losses from natural disasters for many of the years since 1999. (Lk 21; Mt 24) [Refer to #53,217,289,329,377,394,427,437,449.]
· The awful day of the Lord – The Earth’s poles are in the process of reversing. [Refer to discussion below.]
· Mass conversion of the Jews to Catholicism - Rom 11:25-29 speaks of the mass conversion of the Jews to the Faith. As of this writing, this has not occurred. As we shall see later herein, certain private prophecy explains how this will occur.
Now, what is the probability that all of these prophesized events (except the last 3 which will occur soon) have occurred simultaneously by chance? Answer: Extremely Remote!
In Mk 13 and Mt 24, Jesus delineated a number of signs that would precede His triumphant return (NB: the listing above includes those delineated therein plus several others found elsewhere within Holy Scripture.) Thereafter, He stated: “Now of the fig tree learn ye a parable. When the branch thereof is now tender and the leaves are come forth, you know that summer is very near. So you also when you shall see these things come to pass, know ye that it is very nigh, even at the doors. Amen, I say to you that this generation shall not pass until all these things be done. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my word shall not pass away.” (Mk 13:28-31 - DRV).
Please understand that this is NOT the end of the world. It is the end of the era of Satan. What follows is the Era of Peace.
Certain Heretical Beliefs About the End Times
The Era of Peace
"Then I saw an angel come down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the abyss and a heavy chain. He seized the dragon, the ancient serpent, which is the Devil or Satan, and tied it up for a thousand years and threw it into the abyss, which he locked over it and sealed, so that it could no longer lead the nations astray until the thousand years are completed. After this, it is to be released for a short time.
Then I saw thrones; those who sat on them were entrusted with judgment. I also saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast or its image nor had accepted its mark on their foreheads or hands. They came to life and they reigned with Christ for a thousand years. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were over. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over these; they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for (the) thousand years." (Rv 20:1-6)
The Era of Peace will be established by Jesus when He comes in glory in His spirit. Jesus will not be present in the flesh, but will reign in our will and, in a most powerful way, by means of the Holy Eucharist. The duration of this kingdom cannot be interpreted as a literal 1,000 years (NB: time will have been suspended at that point.). The doctrine of the Millennium - an "age to come", an "era" of peace or "some mighty triumph of Christianity before the end" - has been accepted as sound doctrine. Millenarianism, which is substantially different, has been condemned by the Church. (Rv 20:1-6; Rv 21; Is 65:17-25; Dn 2:44; St. Irenaeus).
Remember and understand that Our Heavenly Father has a plan for this world. Adam interfered with God’s plan, and He sent His Son to earth to make reparation. God’s plan will be realized – He will not be upstaged by man. “...and He who sat upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” (Rv 21:5)
The preternatural gifts (immortality, immunity to pain and suffering & integrity) that were lost with Adam’s fall will be restored with the Era of Peace. (Rv 21:3-5, 7; Rv 20) Note also that the Era of Peace is an antitype of the Garden of Eden. As such it will be much greater than the Garden of Eden.
Time corresponds directly with the 7 days of creation. As mentioned above certain of the Fathers (St. Irenaeus & Lactantius) taught that as the world was created in six days, and on the seventh day God rested; similarly, the world as we know it will last six thousand years to be followed by the Era of Peace i.e. the "seven thousandth year". As the basis for this teaching, they cite Genesis, Catholic Tradition, Ps 90:4 and 2 Pt 3:8 which reads:
"But do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." (2 Pt 3:8)
The final period is the Era of Peace, which corresponds to the day of Sabbath or rest taken by the Father in creation.
Rejoice! For we will see the Era of Peace soon!

The Warning, Great Miracle & Chastisement
We have been living through the Era of Divine Mercy, as explained by Jesus to St. Faustina Kowalska. A time of extraordinary grace to bring man to conversion and repentance. Soon it will end, and His Divine Justice will begin.
Very soon each person alive will experience a phenomenon that has been predicted by a number of prophets (yet-to-be-approved), most notably by Our Lady of Garabandal,
With respect to the predicted Warning, Jacinta, stated "The Warning is something that is first seen in the air everywhere in the world and immediately is transmitted into the interior of our souls. It will last for a very little time, but it will seem a very long time because of its effect within us. It will be for the good of our souls in order to see in ourselves our conscience; the good that we have failed to do, and the bad that we have done. Then we will feel a great love towards our Heavenly Parents and ask forgiveness for all our offenses. The Warning is for us to draw closer to Him and to increase our faith. Therefore, one should prepare for that day, but not await it with fear. God does not send things for the sake of fear but rather with justice and love. He does it for the good of all His children so they might enjoy eternal happiness, and not be lost. The Warning will come when conditions are worst."
Immediately upon experiencing the Warning each person MUST make a choice either for Jesus or for Satan -- there can be no alternative. It will require overt actions; simply sitting in a pew for 1 hour on Sunday won't cut it. Faith alone is insufficient.
“What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister has nothing to wear and has no food for the day, and one of you says to them, "Go in peace, keep warm, and eat well," but you do not give them the necessities of the body, what good is it? So also faith of itself, if it does not have works, is dead. Indeed someone might say, "You have faith and I have works." Demonstrate your faith to me without works, and I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works. You believe that God is one. You do well. Even the demons believe that and tremble. Do you want proof, you ignoramus, that faith without works is useless? Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered his son Isaac upon the altar? You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by the works. Thus the scripture was fulfilled that says, "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness," and he was called "the friend of God." See how a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. And in the same way, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she welcomed the messengers and sent them out by a different route? For just as a body without a spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.” (Jas 2:14-26)
"Teacher, what good must I do to gain eternal life?" He answered him, "Why do you ask me about the good? There is only One who is good. If you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments." He asked him, "Which ones?" And Jesus replied, "'You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness; honor your father and your mother'; and 'you shall love your neighbor as yourself.'" (Mt 19:16-19)
“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense, to repay every one for what he has done.” (Rv 22:12)
It is important that immediately after the Warning, each of us write down everything that we experienced to reflect upon later. The prophecies are clear: For a short time people will repent, but thereafter return to their evil ways.
Jesus told us via John Leary that the Comet ISON which is due to travel close to the sun and earth during late 2013 and early 2014 would be a sign of the Warning. It is unclear whether that means the Warning will accompany it, or whether it will some other sign from God such as the cross in the sky that several visionaries have seen.
Shortly after the Warning, all hell will break loose. Literally all of the demons of hell will be loosed upon the Earth. Evil will be used to rid the world of evil.
Further, it was predicted that after the Warning a great miracle will occur at Garabandal. Mari-Loli stated, "The Miracle will take place within one year of the Warning." It is to occur on a Thursday evening at 8:30 p.m. between the 8th and 16th of March, April or May. It is to coincide with an important event of the Church and on the feast day of a young martyr of the Eucharist. There will be conversions and healings.
Conchita: "The Blessed Virgin advised me of a great miracle, saying that God, Our Lord, would perform it through her intercession. Just as the chastisement will be very, very great, in keeping with the needs of the world. The Blessed Virgin has told me the date of the miracle and what it will consist of. I am supposed to announce it eight days in advance, so that people will come. The Pope will see it from wherever he is, and Padre Pio also [he is reliably reported to have already seen the miracle before he died in 1968]. The sick who are present at the miracle will be cured and the sinners will be converted.
One will be able to see and photograph the Great Miracle, but not touch it. Shortly afterwards, Russia is to be converted. A permanent sign is to remain as a result of the Great Miracle. According to one of the visionaries, it will be like a pillar of smoke.
Our Lady told the visionaries that, if we do not heed her warnings and mankind does not change after the warning and miracle, God will send the chastisement.
Mari-Loli: "It would be worse than having fire on top of us --- fire underneath us and fire all around us. She saw people throwing themselves into the sea, but instead of putting the fire out it seemed to make them burn more."
Conchita: "The punishment is conditional upon whether or not mankind heeds the messages of the Blessed Virgin Mary. I cannot reveal what kind of punishment it is except that it will be a result of the direct intervention of God, which makes it more terrible and fearful than anything we can imagine.” [Refer to “Information on the Warning” at the Call To Holiness site and #310, 457.]
Freemasonry and the New World Order
Freemasonry is a secret society, which some hold can trace its beginnings to the masons of ancient Babylon. Indeed, it is a religion complete with a creed, belief system, rituals, altars (places of worship), names for god, feast days, vestments, symbolism and more.
Freemasonry is based upon the false premise that God has not definitely revealed Himself. They believe in religious indifferentism and syncretism in that all religions (other than atheism) are acceptable, provided they swear blood covenantal oaths to the teachings of Freemasonry. Such blood covenantal oaths are incompatible with Christianity.
Masonry teaches that eternal life is available to those who practice virtue and good works. Hence, faith in Jesus Christ and Baptism are not required for salvation. Freemasonry, claims to have the truth. Only the Catholic Faith has the truth. Further, they profess belief in the “Grand Architect of the Universe” rather than the Holy Trinity. Such Grand Architect is none other than Lucifer and the gods of ancient
There are 33 degrees (levels) of both the York and Scottish Rites of Freemasonry. The lower degrees are social clubs, which is the method used to lure initiates into Masonry. As the Mason progresses to the higher degrees, Freemasonry becomes progressively demonic.
Masonry is comprised of a number of sub-groups throughout the world: the Illuminati, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderbergs, the Club of Rome, the Trilateralist Commission, the Knights of Malta, Skull & Bones, the Alta Vendita, and more.
The Illuminati represent 13 elitist families, which have controlled international finance for centuries. From the shadows, they finance governments, and thus own them. They have sought to replace monarchies with republics, typically with a two-party system. They finance the campaigns of the leading Masonic candidates of both parties in elections ensuring that one of their members is elected.
They seek a one-world government centered (initially) under the United Nations, a one-world currency and a one-world New-Age religion (NB: there is nothing new about the New Age religion. They worship the same demonic gods of ancient Babylon/Egypt.). In particular, they seek the destruction of the one true Apostolic and Catholic Church from both within and from outside the Church.
It is worthy of emphasis that the Catholic Church has condemned Freemasonry and issued an anathema to anyone joining the Masons. Any Catholic who joins the Masons is ex-communicated automatically from the Mystical Body of Christ, which is the Church.
The party line that the Masons use to describe the above mentioned plan for the world, is the “New World Order”.
To facilitate their New World Order, they had to eliminate the two existing Superpowers. They ran down the price of oil artificially, and escalated US defense spending and trading during the 1980s to bankrupt the USSR. Similarly, they have destroyed the US mortgaged-back securities market, and the debt market in general, escalated defense spending, engaged in an expensive and ill-defined “war on terror”, escalated welfare programs, nationalized healthcare, etc. to bankrupt the US.
Their plan calls for the elimination of billions of “useless eaters”, like you and I. This will be attempted in a number of ways. During the last several years, they closed certain military bases and government installations, and converted them into detention/death camps, which surpass anything that the Nazis or Japanese had during World War II. They have been spraying the skies with chemicals (chemtrails) to weaken the immune systems of people; and have, and will continue, to release deadly bacteria and viruses into the atmosphere (e.g. SARS, H1N1-Swine Flu cocktail, etc.). They have tainted, and will continue to taint, vaccines with deadly diseases. They have passed laws, that when enforced, will require doctors’ prescriptions for vitamins and supplements thereby making it difficult for people to treat themselves. They have nationalized healthcare putting them in control of our health care. There are bills before the US Congress calling for the prohibiting of private vegetable gardens, thus requiring people to buy food from them. They have passed draconian laws, which have eliminated many other basic freedoms. Further, they are promoting genetically altered seeds, which do not reproduce. They have established an extensive surveillance system (including digital television and household appliances containing the chip that can be used to monitor people in their homes – now you know why the US government agreed to subsidize conversion to digital television.), which has turned our environment into electronic concentration camps. Further, they can emit extremely low frequency (ELF) waves via digital television and satellite systems to influence the minds of people. These evil men will eliminate many people via nuclear, biological and chemical warfare. Such warfare will not only kill many people directly, but will poison our food and water supplies. They are using the HAARP machine to modify the weather and trigger earthquakes (US Patent 4,686,605). And more.....
In short their plan calls for them to have complete control over the lives of all survivors. One of the premier mottos of Masonry, is “Order out of Chaos”. Once they have established an uncommon chaos and fear, they will require all to accept the Mark of the Beast (cf. Rv 13) in order to eat, drink, work, travel, obtain medical treatment, etc.
BUT........Our Heavenly Father has a plan! Remember that God always takes care of His people..........ALWAYS! We shall learn more about this plan later in this writing.
Additionally, it should be noted that Our Lady told us via Fr. Stefano Gobbi that the Beast Like a Leopard spoken of in Dn 7 is Freemasonry. [Refer to #198] Further, she advised that the Beast Like a Lamb is Freemasonry infiltrated into the Church. Refer to the section on the Great Apostasy and the False Prophet below for discussions on Ecclesiastical Masonry.]
Once world government has been established under the United Nations, the Antichrist will seize its control. [Refer to #22, 80, 302, 320, 380, 438, 441, 442, 444.]
The tyrant of the end times that rules the world, sets himself up as a "god" and persecutes the faithful Christians. The Antichrist is the first Beast of Revelation, the deceiver tyrant of Dn 7,8,9 and 11, and the son of perdition of 2 Thes 2.
The Antichrist is evil incarnate. He will mock Jesus, deny that Jesus is the Christ, and claim to be god. According to Our Lord’s messages via John Leary, the Antichrist is an Arab cleric (religious person) that is living in
Through John Leary, Jesus told us that not only is he living in England at this time, but that we have seen his public relations man. Many feel that this refers to Benjamin Creme who has been promoting the one who calls himself “Maitreya”. This Maitreya calls himself “The World Teacher”. Maitreya promotes religious pluralism, which is condemned by the Church. Essentially, religious pluralism holds that all religions worship the same god, only by different names. Hence, all religions can lead to Heaven. However, he adds a twist to it. That is, that we must all come together in a one-world New Age religion and worship him. Avoid this “Maitreya”! Do not look at his face or listen to his voice!
The Antichrist has extended powers from Hell. Through John Leary and Louise Tomkiel (yet-to-be approved) Jesus told us not to look at the image of the Antichrist, as he has demonic power to hypnotize us into worshipping him. Further, Jesus told us that after the Warning, it is imperative that we discard our televisions sets, computer monitors, stereos, radios and newspapers/magazines so that we do not see his image or hear his voice.
He will be duplicitous, and initially will appear as a man of peace. The Antichrist will preach to the masses in the large sports stadia that were constructed in recent years. During the 3 ½ years of the Tribulation, his true evil character will be revealed. He will be the worst tyrant the world has ever known, specifically persecuting Christians.
The number of the Antichrist’s name is 666. We submit that as the Apocalypse was written in Greek, it follows that the contextual meaning of Revelation 13:18 could be understood best if the Greek isopsephy was employed in deciphering the riddle. Furthermore, one should pay particular attention to the Greek forms of the names, provided Greek equivalents exist. We would do well to analyze all End Times personages, accordingly.
The Masonic minions of Satan have been projecting laser beams into the sky reflecting them off of aluminum particles previously sprayed into the atmosphere via chemtrails creating artificial “UFOs” and “stars”. Benjamin Crème has been claiming that these artificial stars are Maitreya’s star(s) of Bethlehem. Further, it has been reported that they have plans to use lasers to portray holographic images in the sky of Jesus, Buddha, Muhammad, et al merging them into a hologram of Maitreya for all the world to see (cf. Rv 13).
Through John Leary, Jesus advised that He will shorten time during the Tribulation by sending a huge earthquake (Mt 24:22). Such earthquake will knock the Earth off its axis, and cause it to spin faster (Is 13 & Rv 6 & 11). As a result, there will be less than 24 hours in each day. [Refer to #406.]
He will force all to receive the Mark of the Beast (discussed below), in order to buy or sell. The Antichrist will persecute the Christians unlike ever before beheading many of them. [Refer to #385, 419, 420, 421 and Rv 20:4; “How to Identify the Antichrist” at the Call To Holiness site; and updated information in the Links section of the Yahoo – Era of Peace site under “Antichrist”.]
The False Prophet
“Then I saw another beast which rose out of the earth; it had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed. It works great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of men; and by the signs which it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast, it deceives those who dwell on earth, bidding them make an image for the beast which was wounded by the sword and yet lived; and it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast so that the image of the beast should even speak, and to cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain." (Rv 13:11-15)
A few years ago while contemplating the False Prophet, Our Lord stated the following to me: “If the First Beast is a man of duplicity, what can be expected of the Second? Is not Satan a snake?” Clearly, the First Beast refers to the Antichrist, while the Second Beast refers to the False Prophet – both of whom are two-faced.
According to the prophecies of Louise Tomkiel, the False Prophet (Antipope) will apostatize, and will attempt to lead the Church in the direction of the false one-world New Age religion. It is worthy of note that the doctrine of papal infallibility applies only when the true Pope teaches ex cathedra (emphasis added). That is when by virtue of his supreme Apostolic authority, he (a) teaches on faith and morals, and (b) teaches to the universal Church.
Historically, the Church has taught that as a Pope continues to have free will, he can teach heresy or apostatize. However, immediately upon doing so in his heart, he is ipso facto automatically deposed. Schismatics loose all jurisdiction, immediately. As such, he ceases immediately at such time to be the Pope. This is the teaching of the Fathers of the Church, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Robert Bellarmine and other doctors of the Church. Hence, his heretical teaching would fall outside of the doctrine of papal infallibility.
It is worthy of note that in defining Papal infallibility, the First Vatican Council attached the charism to the office of the Papacy, not to the individual. The term ex cathedra, means “from the chair [of St. Peter]”. Hence, when such a Pope apostatizes in his heart, he immediately leaves the office of Pope, and the charism of Papal Infallibility remains with the “chair” or office.
We hasten to add that it is clear that upon the abdication of Ex-Pope Benedict XVI in early 2013, he immediately lost the charism of Papal Infallibility. That is to say, that under no circumstances will the future teachings or preaching of Ex-Pope Benedict XVI be infallible again.
Some non-Catholics would hold that one should not follow the Catholic Church, as the False Prophet will arise from her ranks. This is nonsense! The Catholic Faith is sound regardless of the sins of the men who comprise the Church. If one who ate and drank with Jesus would betray Him, what can be expected of others? The fact that one of the Apostles committed a great sin, which lead to the immolation and death of Jesus, did not invalidate the teachings of Jesus. Similarly, the Catholic Faith will remain sound regardless of whether any such “pope” apostatizes. We reiterate that upon the apostasy of any “pope”, the Faithful are no longer required to obey his teachings after such act of apostasy.
Through Louise Tomkiel, Our Lord advised that the successor to Pope John Paul II would be an Antipope.
[Refer to “Ecclesiastical Masonry: The Beast Like a Lamb”, “To Protect the Faith”, “The Original Prayer to St. Michael”, and “Upon this Rock” at the Call To Holiness site; #307, 308, 309, 436, 448, 456, ; and updated information in the Links section of the Yahoo – Era of Peace site under “False Prophet”.].
The Great Apostasy & Great Schism
"We ask you, brothers, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our assembling with him, not to be shaken out of your minds suddenly, or to be alarmed either by a "spirit," or by an oral statement, or by a letter allegedly from us to the effect that the day of the Lord is at hand. Let no one deceive you in any way. For unless the apostasy comes first and the lawless one is revealed, the one doomed to perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god and object of worship, so as to seat himself in the temple of God, claiming that he is a god -- do you not recall that while I was still with you I told you these things?" (2 Thes 2:1-5)
Name another time in which man has become more degraded than that of our time. With his technology and medical science, man has elevated himself to a "god". Matters are explained no longer as spiritual, but are explained in terms of science and nature. Cures for diseases are thought of no longer as gifts from God, but as the result of sufficiently-funded scientific research. Through contemporary prophets, Our Lord and Our Lady each stated that the world today is worse that in the days of Noah. Witness: abortions, homosexuality, illicit sex, deceit and violation of contracts, liberal theology, lack of personal responsibility, unprecedented weapons of mass destruction, divorce, murder, rape, harvesting human organs from animals, medical experimentation which only 60 years ago were considered atrocities, cloning, theft, greed, genetically modifying nature, etc. No other time has known illicit sex broadcast into every home via television, making the family environment a cesspool. Man has made materialism his golden calf. Since Adam, man has always sinned, but today he laughs at sin, even boasts of it. Man has lost the sense of sin and made it a lifestyle.
As stated above, the Blessed Virgin told us via Fr. Gobbi that the Great Apostasy exists within the Church at this time, but has yet to break out into the open.
Shortly before he was elected Pope, Pope John Paul II stated: “We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel." (Notable & Quotable, Karol Cardinal Wojtyla (who became Pope John Paul II), Wall Street Journal, Nov. 9, 1978.).
In 1998, Pope John Paul II took steps to clarify the Church's position on obedience, and any teaching contrary to Catholic doctrine by issuing his Apostolic Letter Motu Proprio AD TUENDAM FIDEM. At the Call To Holiness site, the writing, “To Protect the Faith”, discusses the above mentioned Apostolic Letter Motu Proprio, and certain Holy Scripture, the Didache and private prophecy. Read how the above mentioned Apostolic Letter clarifies Canon Law prohibiting ANYONE from reforming or changing any teaching of the Catholic Church or its Pontiff, and punishing these unfaithful with excommunication......THIS INCLUDES THE POPE or EX-POPE.
Witness the Pontificate of Pope John Paul II. It's been said that it appeared to have been orchestrated by Heaven! His pontificate was a consistent preparation for, and struggle against, the Evil of the End Times. In the light of his recent repeated references to the book of Revelation, and his recent statements to certain cardinals and bishops to "examine the signs of the times", it appears as though he was making a momentous effort to protect the Faith, and gather his flock before the storm.
We have been told that Freemasonry has infiltrated the Church, and that during the Tribulation the following will come under attack: (a) the Catholic Church as the one true Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ, (b) the real presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist,
(c) the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (in particular, the Holy Words of Consecration), (d) devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, (e) the power and efficacy of the Holy Rosary, (f) the primacy of the Papacy, (g) the Sacrament of Matrimony, (h) the priesthood, (i) the Sacrament of Reconciliation, (j) the Faith and morality in general, and more. They will form a one-world New Age religion, which will worship gods and goddesses of the Earth. There is nothing new about “New Age”. They worship the same pagan gods and goddesses of the ancient Egyptians and the ancient Babylonians before them.
John Paul II dedicated his pontificate to restraining the lawlessness of the Tribulation. As predicted in Second Thessalonians above and in certain private prophecy, now that he has died the Great Apostasy, which has been slithering into the Church, will become manifest openly; and the Great Schism will occur.
"The work of the devil will infiltrate even the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres ...churches and altars sacked, the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord. The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them." (Our Lady of Akita, October 13, 1973; approved by the Church as worthy of belief.)
Led by the False Prophet, the Church will split into two, and only a remnant will remain faithful to the historical teachings of the Church. Read and heed the “Catechism of the Catholic Church”! Pope John Paul II had it compiled for these times. Remain faithful to the historical teachings of the Catholic Church!
Through an anonymous visionary whose messages are posted on a website entitled: “Locutions to the World” (G), Jesus and Our Lady stated that Pope Francis 1 will be a “game changer”, and directed our attention to the fact that he is from outside the Vatican. Further, Our Lady stated that Pope Francis will release the complete and accurate Secret of Fatima, and that he will call for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary as she requested at Fatima. He will address her titles (presumably this has to do with the proposed 5th Marian dogma: Mary as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate).
Additionally through this visionary, we have been told that Pope Francis 1 will go to Jerusalem. There he will stand up for the Jews in a particular way, and will be martyred. The actions of Pope Francis and his martyrdom will touch the hearts of the Jews; and by the grace of God, there will be mass conversions of the Jews to the Catholic Faith (cf. Rom 11:25-29).

The Abomination of Desolation
"And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off, and shall have nothing; and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war; desolations are decreed. And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week; and for half of the week he shall cause sacrifice and offering to cease; and upon the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator." (Dn 9:26-27) NB: The Hebrew word used is shabuwa, which means a "week of years" or seven years.
"When you see standing in the holy place the abomination that causes desolation spoken of through the prophet Daniel -- let the reader understand -- then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains, a person on the housetop must not go down to get things out of his house, a person in the field must not return to get his cloak - for at that time there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will be. And if those days had not been shortened, no one would be saved; but for the sake of the elect they will be shortened.". (Mt 24:15-22).
According to prophecies through Fr. Stefano Gobbi and John Leary, this refers to the forthcoming time when the holy words of consecration are changed in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, thereby preventing transubstantiation, and thus making the host desolate of Our Lord's presence. A sacrilege is defined as the abuse of a sacrament, and this certainly will be an abomination.
According to the prophecies, after the one-world people seize
"...for it pertains to the appointed time of the end...a king of bold countenance, one who understands riddles, shall arise. His power shall be great, and he shall cause fearful destruction, and shall succeed in what he does, and destroy mighty men and the people of the saints." (Dn 8:19-24).
“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.” (Jn 16:2-4).
The persecutions of Christians during the Tribulation will be the greatest persecution of man since the beginning of time. As mentioned earlier, the US Patriot Acts require that citizens turn in “enemy combatants” to the authorities, and the US President designates who are “enemy combatants”, unilaterally.
The detention camps exist. The Masons have designed their plan to control every aspect of our lives. Churches will loose their tax exempt status, and will be sacked. It will be illegal to convene in public in a Christian setting, and the Church will return to the catacombs. The plan of the Masons is designed to control our lives completely. Those who refuse the Mark of the Beast, the subdermal microchip, will be taken by force to the death camps.
According to Leary and Tomkiel during the End Times, God’s Faithful will bear the images of a crosses on their foreheads. The Faithful will see the crosses on each other’s foreheads; while evil people will not see them, nor have such a cross on their foreheads. Priests and visionaries will have a triangle or a ring [Refer to #392; Rv 7 & 9.].
As mentioned earlier, God has a plan to protect His people. We shall discuss this plan in greater detail below. [Refer to #264, 267, 274, 301, 331, 375, 381, 390, 392, 401, 403, 410.]
The Mark of the Beast
During the last 25 years, private prophecy has been very specific: The black beast as a leopard is Freemasonry. We have been told also that it is Freemasonry, which is behind the New World Order; and their plan is to control the world. Several have tried, and all have failed; but none have tried it the way that we have been told that the Masons are attempting to do it.
The premiere motto of Freemasonry is: “Order Out Of Chaos”. Simply stated, they intend to throw the complete world into a state of fear, panic and chaos. Once they have succeeded in achieving worldwide chaos, they intend to solve it their way --- with them in complete control.
To create such chaos Heaven told us, and we are now seeing, that they will use (a) nuclear, biological, chemical and conventional attacks upon man, animals, crops, and water supplies from both terrorists and from warring nations; (b) manipulation of all financial and commodity markets, including energy, transportation and utilities; (c) manipulation of the food supply; and (d) manipulation of the weather (via HAARP). Further, they will control the availability of all health care, food, supplies and water. Once an uncommon and pervasive fear has been established, they will force acceptance of the Mark of the Beast (cf. Rv 13) into the body of many survivors in order to buy or sell ---- but not all survivors.
The Mark of the Beast is the subdermal microchip placed under the skin. It is slightly larger than a grain of rice, and consists of the chip and antennae encased in glass. Those who accept the chip will be monitored via the Global Positioning Satellite System. Through John Leary and Louise Tomkiel, Our Lord warned that the chip will enable evil men to transmit messages from their cell towers to the chips, which will emit electronic charges into the central nervous system allowing them to control the minds of the recipients to worship the Antichrist.
Further, the Silent Sound Spread Spectrum system will be used via satellites and digital television to beam ELF waves directly into the auditory nerves of the brain (bypassing the ear drums), causing targeted people to hear voices “in their heads”. Benjamin Crème stated that on the day that Maitreya declares himself, people everywhere will see his face and hear his voice inwardly and telepathically.
Additionally, we have been told that modern appliances contain the chip, and are designed to allow evil men to monitor people in their homes. The former head of the Central Intelligence Agency of the USA admitted that his agency can not only monitor people by way of house hold appliances and electronic gadgets, but that they will monitor Americans using these means.
Consider the 24th chapter of Isaiah, which reads: "Lo, the LORD empties the land and lays it waste; he turns it upside down, scattering its inhabitants: Layman and priest alike, servant and master, The maid as her mistress, the buyer as the seller, The lender as the borrower, the creditor as the debtor. The earth is utterly laid waste, utterly stripped, for the LORD has decreed this thing. The earth mourns and fades, the world languishes and fades; both heaven and earth languish. The earth is polluted because of its inhabitants, who have transgressed laws, violated statutes, broken the ancient covenant. Therefore a curse devours the earth, and its inhabitants pay for their guilt; Therefore they who dwell on earth turn pale, and few men are left. The wine mourns, the vine languishes, all the merry-hearted groan. Stilled are the cheerful timbrels, ended the shouts of the jubilant, stilled is the cheerful harp. They cannot sing and drink wine; strong drink is bitter to those who partake of it. Broken down is the city of chaos, shut against entry, every house. In the streets they cry out for lack of wine; all joy has disappeared and cheer has left the land. In the city nothing remains but ruin; its gates are battered and desolate. Thus it is within the land, and among the peoples, As with an olive tree after it is beaten, as with a gleaning when the vintage is done. These lift up their voice in acclaim; from the sea they proclaim the majesty of the LORD: "For this, in the coastlands, give glory to the LORD! In the coastlands of the sea, to the name of the LORD, the God of Israel!" From the end of the earth we hear songs: "Splendor to the Just One!" But I said, "I am wasted, wasted away. Woe is me! The traitors betray: with treachery have the traitors betrayed! Terror, pit, and trap are upon you, inhabitant of the earth; He who flees at the sound of terror will fall into the pit; He who climbs out of the pit will be caught in the trap. For the windows on high will be opened and the foundations of the earth will shake. The earth will burst asunder, the earth will be shaken apart, the earth will be convulsed. The earth will reel like a drunkard, and it will sway like a hut; Its rebellion will weigh it down, until it falls, never to rise again." (Is 24:1-20)
A Sin that Will Not Be Forgiven
another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If any
one worships the beast and its image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on
his hand, he also shall drink the wine of God's wrath, poured unmixed into the
cup of his anger, and he shall be tormented with fire and sulphur in the
presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of
their torment goes up for ever and ever; and they have no rest, day or night,
these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of
its name." (Rv 14:9-11)
As we see from the citation above, anyone who willingly accepts the subdermal microchip placed in their body will go to Hell irrevocably upon his death. Willful acceptance of the Mark of the Beast constitutes a sin that will NOT be forgiven. This is because recipients will loose their free will to seek repentance.
Modern Articles and Devices Containing the Chip
The following is a brief list of modern
devices that contain a microchip that can be tracked by the agents of the New
World Order. This list is not comprehensive:
Late model automobiles (those manufactured after 1984 have computers), cellular telephones, computers (including desk tops, lap tops and tablets), MPG players, electronic pagers, national smart identification cards, smart driver’s licenses, smart credit and debit cards, smart passports & visas, personal digital assistants (pda’s), satellite dishes, Fastrak & EZ Passes and other toll booth cards for tollways, certain automobile license plates, shoppers cards, gas station cards, student identification cards, passes for the work place, GPS positioning and locating devices, Onstar and LoJack automobile location systems, watches and bracelets with the chip, radio frequency identification tags (also known as RFIDs) in consumer goods including food and clothing, household appliances, articles from China, and of course -- the Mark Of the Beast, the subdermal microchip in the hand or forehead.
Modern Devices Monitored
The following is a brief list of modern devices
in which we are monitored by the agents of the New World Order. This list is
Telephones, cellular telephones, electronic mail (email), the Internet, high definition (digital) television, fax machines, office and home appliances and gadgets, and cable television.
One can now see how the Masons have manipulated events, and are continuing to manipulate events, to further their evil agenda (e.g. false flag events such as the attack upon the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, the blowout of BP’s Macondo well off of the coast of Louisiana, USA, etc., Since September 11, 2001, they have been clamoring about the threat of “terrorism”, and taking away our freedoms. In April of 2010, US President Obama convened a Nuclear Security Summit of many nations in which they signed a document stating that the threat of nuclear terrorism is one of the greatest threats to global security, and agreed to defend against it collectively. [Reflect upon this and reread Is 24, 1Thes 5; “The Mark of the Beast at the Call To Holiness site; and #36,135,381,401,414,415,458,459]
The US Obamacare law contemplates the use of Type II implantable devices (i.e. the subdermal chip). Via John Leary, Jesus advised that evil men will be forcing the Mark of the Beast upon Americans by December 31, 2014. [Refer to #453.]
DO NOT ACCEPT THE CHIP UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES !
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
Revelation 6 speaks of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. The rider with a bow on the white horse is the Masonic Council on Foreign Relations (whose logo is a rider on a white horse). The CFR “rides” throughout the world conquering by stealth. The rider carries a bow, as they attack from a distance. They topple governments, and install republics with two political parties. Subsequently, they finance the campaigns of leading Masonic candidates in both parties ensuring CFR victories. Once their men are elected, they control the strings of the puppets. The rider on the red horse represents war. As of this writing, the nations are poised for World War III, unlike ever before. The next war will be designed to devastate all the militaries of the world, except that of NATO which will become the military of the Antichrist. The rider of the black horse holding a scale represents a general bankruptcy. It is significant that the rider on the red horse precedes the rider on the black horse, as the masonic banksters will use the forthcoming war as an excuse for their planned economic collapse. As of this writing, the international banking system of fiat money and fractional reserve lending is bankrupt - a bankruptcy, which was orchestrated. The system should have collapsed in March of 2012 when Greece defaulted on its bonds, but the banksters continue to support the system illegally as they are not finished looting the system of most all wealth. Once they have stripped the system of most all tangible wealth, they will allow it to collapse. The rider on the pale green horse represents pestilence and plagues. Using high altitude jet aircraft, the Masons have been spraying municipalities with chemicals (chemtrails) to weaken our immune systems. It is a fact that SARS and the H1N1 flu cocktail were developed in test tubes. Additionally, their plan calls for the tainting of vaccines to inject live bacteria and viruses into people. This occurred in March of 2009. Also, Our Lord stated that ancient bacteria and viruses are being released into the atmosphere as glaciers melt. Further through Louise Tomkiel, He predicted that radiation would escape from nuclear power plants due to earthquakes. [Refer to #276,283,358,368,387,386,380,400, 407,424,432,443,445.].
It is worthy of note that the plagues of Revelation are antitypes of the plagues of Exodus. As such, they will be much worse. [Refer to “Tribulation Protection: the Blood of the Lamb” and “To the Refuges on Wings of Eagles” at the Call To Holiness site and to #384,390.]
Within the last few years, there have been many predictions of signs in the sky alerting us to events of the End Times made by Jesus and Our Lady through various alleged mystics: St. Faustina, the visionaries of Garabandal and Medjugorje, Father Stefano Gobbi, John Leary, Carol Ameche and Louise Tomkiel, to name a few (each of these have yet-to-be approved by the Church). Our Lady stated that some signs will be explicable by scientists, while others will be inexplicable. In some cases, a number of unusual phenomena have occurred subsequent to the predictions.
Soon the messages from Heaven will cease. God will continue to let us know that He is watching over us by providing signs in the sky.
Through St. Luke, Our Lord spoke to us about signs in the sky during the Tribulation. He said: "There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, and on earth nations will be in dismay, perplexed by the roar of the sea and the waves. People will die of fright in anticipation of what is coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. But when these signs begin to happen, stand erect and raise your heads because your redemption is at hand…Beware that your hearts do not become drowsy from carousing and drunkenness and the anxieties of daily life, and that day catch you by surprise like a trap. For that day will assault everyone who lives on the face of the earth. Be vigilant at all times and pray that you have the strength to escape the tribulations that are imminent and to stand before the Son of Man." (Lk 21) [Refer to “Sky Signs” at the Call To Holiness site, and #393.].
Earth’s Poles & Glaciers
The Day of the Lord, which appears in Holy Scripture in many places, represents the climactic release of Our Heavenly Father's terrible wrath upon an unrepentant world shortly before the return of His Son in glory. It will be a time unprecedented in the history of mankind, in which the anger of God will be manifest in his nature, and the forces of evil will receive their due.
The Day of the Lord is not to be interpreted literally as a single twenty-four hour day, but rather an extended period of time. We see evidence of this in 2 Pt 3:8 where we are told that "with the Lord one day is as a thousand years".
The manner in which God manifests His wrath upon the earth is unknown precisely, but insight is provided throughout Scripture and certain private prophecy. We are told that the stars will fall from the sky, the sun will not give its light, the mountains will be laid low and swallowed up, the seasons will be altered, the earth will be shaken from its place, the seas will roar with huge waves, storms will rage, earthquakes will be plentiful, famine and disease will be widespread, etc. Simply stated, the earth will be in the state of turmoil.
The geologic record indicates the earth's magnetic poles have reversed many times during its existence. That is to say, that with the next polar reversal, compasses will point South instead of North. Further, evidence indicates that during the reversal process nature becomes chaotic. Specifically, the earth's core becomes unstable causing: significant movement of the tectonic plates resulting in massive earthquakes, increased volcanic activity, disruption in the earth's climatic conditions, increased tidal activity, disruption of the seasons and production of food, and increased solar radiation being absorbed throughout the globe (which reminds one of Rv 16:8-9).
Scientific evidence indicates that the earth is in the process of such a polar reversal currently. The current polar reversal began with a steady decrease of the earth's magnetic field about 160 years ago, or about the time that Our Lady appeared at LaSalette. You will recall that her message contained warnings about the earth being struck with calamities of all kinds, the seasons being altered and more. Coincidence?
During the process and as a consequence of the turning of the earth’s magma, the magnetosphere (the force field that emanates from the poles, surrounds the earth and deflects solar radiation) will recede. At such time, holes will appear in the magnetosphere allowing increased solar energy and radiation to penetrate the surface of the earth. This will result in increased cases of melanoma cancer and the destruction of everything electrical and electronic in its path (cf. Rv 16:7-9).
A few years ago, NASA sent 5 satellites (THEMIS) into space to measure the earth’s magnetosphere. They were astounded to learn that a huge hole, which is larger than the earth, exists in the magnetosphere. That is to say that the earth’s defensive shield is down.
Based upon historical data, both the maximum rate of solar flares and their maximum intensity are scheduled to occur during 2013. Thus far, 2013 has been both extremely and abnormally quiet. Is this the lull before the storm? Some scientists are questioning whether solar max (as it is called) has been delayed until possibly 2014.
Additionally via Louise Tomkiel, Our Lord told us that as the glacial ice melts, ancient bacteria and viruses that have been frozen for millennia are being released into the atmosphere. [Refer to the message of Our Lady of LaSalette contained in “After The Warning” at the Call To Holiness site. Also see #295,349,357,368,428.]
The Three Days of Darkness
There have been many prophecies about the three days of darkness over the centuries. We have been told that only blessed candles will give light during such time, and that those present should not look out their windows. God will be punishing the evil at such time, and those who look out will die.
According to the prophecies of John Leary, the three days of darkness will be caused by the return of the comet of the Warning. It will strike the earth in the Atlantic Ocean when the armies are gathered at Armageddon. [Refer to Dn 2, Rv 16 & 18.]
The three days of darkness should be of no concern to those who respond to the call of their guardian angels to flee, as we will be at the refuges at such time. This is discussed in greater detail below. Via John Leary, Jesus advised that the Faithful at the refuges will be fully-protected by being taken up into the air immediately before the comet strikes the earth (cf. 1 Cor 15:51-53; 1 Thes 4:15-17). [Refer to #284,315.]
Remedy: Prayers of Consecration and the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
We spoke above about how the Church became the New Israel upon the death of Jesus (Gal 4 & 6) [Refer to #396].
Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords [1 Tm 6, Rv 17 & 19]. Further, Jesus was born in the line of King David (Lk 1). In the Davidic kingdoms, the kings had several wives. The one who sat at his right hand was the king’s mother, the Queen Mother. Her purpose was to serve as the advocate and intercessor of the people of Israel to her son. This is chiefly because sons have difficulty turning down the requests of their mothers (Jn 2)
"…Then Bathsheba went to King Solomon to speak to him for Adonijah, and the king stood up to meet her and paid her homage. Then he sat down upon his throne, and a throne was provided for the king's mother, who sat at his right. "There is one small favor I would ask of you," she said. "Do not refuse me." "Ask it, my mother," the king said to her, "for I will not refuse you…". (I Kgs 2:19-20)
As Jesus is King of kings and we are the New Israel, the Blessed Virgin Mary is the Queen Mother of the New Israel.
The Blessed Mother of God (Lk 1:43) is the fairest daughter of the Father, the Mother of the Son and the Spouse of the Holy Spirit. She has a relationship with the Holy Trinity unlike any other creature. Her role as Advocate for the children of God is unlike any other creature’s as well (NB: she is a creature, as human as you or I – but a very special creature due to her relationship with the Holy Trinity.). Our prayer to the Blessed Mother is “pray for us”.
In the New Testament, with the announcement of the new and eternal King and Kingdom of God (Lk 1:32-33), so too humanity receives a new Queen Mother, as principal advocate for the people of God in presenting their needs to Jesus Christ, the King of kings. Her advocacy is manifest clearly at Cana, interceding on behalf of those without physical wine, but ultimately for the spiritual and Eucharistic wine of her Son (cf. Jn 2:1-10). At Calvary, the Crucified King presents his Mother and Queen to the world as gift to all in his Kingdom (cf. Jn 19:27). And in Revelation, the new Queen Mother in the universal and everlasting Kingdom of Christ is crowned with twelve stars (cf. Rv 12:1), as she, in battle array, continues her life and death advocacy for humanity against the spiritual warring of the Dragon-Adversary.
"Then God's temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen within his temple; and there were flashes of lightning, voices, peals of thunder, an earthquake, and heavy hail. And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; she was with child and she cried out in her pangs of birth, in anguish for delivery. And another portent appeared in heaven; behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems upon his heads. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to bear a child, that he might devour her child when she brought it forth; she brought forth a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne, and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which to be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days." (Rv 11:19-12:6)
"And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman who brought forth the man child. And there were given to the woman two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the desert, unto her place, where she is nourished for a time and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth, after the woman, water, as it were a river: that he might cause her to be carried away by the river. And the earth helped the woman: and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon cast out of his mouth.". (Rv 12:13-16)
(NB: the Greek word eremos (which means “wilderness” or “desert”) was used in both instances above, but the translator chose to use “wilderness” in one place and “desert” in another.)
It is a fact that the authors of the books of the Bible did not break their writings into chapters. This is a convention added by the Church centuries later to aid in reference. Hence, we can gain greater insight as to the meaning of the word “woman” by taking this into consideration in reading the last verse of Rv 11 together with Rv 12.
The Blessed Virgin Mary is the “New Ark of the Covenant”. While the Old Testament ark of the covenant carried the written word of God; for nine months, the Blessed Virgin carried the Incarnate Word (cf. Jn 1:1-14).
The Old Testament ark of the covenant remains on earth hidden in a cave (cf. 2 Mc 2:5). It can not possibly be in Heaven. Whereas, the New Ark of the Covenant was assumed body and soul into Heaven (a singular (H) privilege – God would not allow the womb that carried His flesh to become food for worms.). Therefore, the Ark of the Covenant that St. John saw in Heaven had to be the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God.
Furthermore, the Mother of God has appeared on earth subsequently with a crown of stars, and clothed with the sun and with the moon at her feet (e.g. Our Lady of Guadalupe).
We have additional assurance that the above passage refers to the Blessed Virgin in that it states "she brought forth a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne". Psalm 2:9 confirms that the phrase, "rules with a rod of iron", refers to Jesus. Additional confirmation is provided in the verbiage, "but her child was caught up to God and to his throne". This can be no other than Jesus, the Son of God.
Lastly, note that the woman wears a crown. Which type of women wear crowns?
As discussed above, the Tribulation is to last 3 ½ years. “Time, times and a half”, and “1260 days” relate to such 3 1/2 years.
Your attention is directed to the sentence: “And there were given to the woman two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the desert [wilderness], unto her place, where she is nourished for a time and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.” Gn 3:15 reads: “I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.” [DRV & Latin Vulgate]. At Fatima, in speaking of the End Times Our Lady stated: “...But in the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph...” To Fr. Gobbi she stated: “…For this, I invite all to consecrate themselves to my Immaculate Heart, and I am extending this, my request, to the most extreme limits of the earth through my Marian Movement of Priests. In this way, I am offering you a safe refuge, which the Most Holy Trinity has prepared for you, for these stormy times of the great tribulation and of the painful trial which has come for the Church and for all humanity… ."
This is how she wages battle with the Red Dragon. This is how she crushes the head of the serpent. This is how the Triumph of her Immaculate Heart will be realized. Satan's ploy is to draw the whole world into wholesale rejection of God's Holy Will.
To be sure, Jesus defeated evil through His Passion and Death on the cross, but He reserved the final crushing blow for His Mother (You will recall that at the Annunciation, the Blessed Virgin was well aware that the Messiah was to die a horrible death. With her fiat, she agreed to sacrifice her Son in a horrible death for the salvation of mankind. At Calvary, she suffered a crucifixion of the heart as she watched her Son suffer a horrible death to which she had agreed (cf. Lk 1 & 2). It was the Holy Trinity who created Lucifer, and they could have destroyed him with just a thought. But they had a different plan. Our Heavenly Father chose a meek and humble obedient virgin to crush the head of the powerful, prideful and disobedient Satan. We have been told repeatedly that when Satan springs his plan to seize the whole world in his grasp via his Antichrist and False Prophet of Revelation, Our Lady will rescue those consecrated to her Immaculate Heart and guide them to safe refuges.
Accordingly, we ask that you join us in making the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary:
An Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
I, (your name), a
faithless sinner-- renew and ratify today in thy hands, O Immaculate Mother,
the vows of my Baptism; I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works; and I
give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross
after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him than I have
ever been before.
In the presence of all the heavenly court I choose thee this day, for my Mother and Mistress. I deliver and consecrate to thee, as thy slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present and future; leaving to thee the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to thy good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and in eternity. Amen.
Our Lady told us via Fr. Gobbi that the Tribulation can be shortened with an increased number of people making the consecration. We note also that the centennial anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions at Fatima will occur in 2017. [Refer to “Prayers of Consecration and the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary”, and “Mary, Queen and Queen Mother” at the Call To Holiness site; also #454.]
"When you see the desolating abomination spoken of through Daniel the prophet standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then those in Judea must flee to the mountains, a person on the housetop must not go down to get things out of his house, a person in the field must not return to get his cloak. Woe to pregnant women and nursing mothers in those days. Pray that your flight not be in winter or on the sabbath, for at that time there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will be. And if those days had not been shortened, no one would be saved; but for the sake of the elect they will be shortened." (Mt 24:15-22) (Also, see Mk 13:14-19)
St. Luke recorded the above mentioned discussion of Our Lord differently: "Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those who are inside the city depart, and let not those who are out in the country enter it." . (Lk 21:21) .
The refuges discussed in the previous section exist. I am a member of a group that was called by Our Lord to build such a refuge. Indeed, it is located in the countryside; and has a natural spring on it, which we were told would have healing properties (as at
Jesus told us through John Leary and Louise Tomkiel that we should call upon His Name when we see (1) a world famine; (2) schism (division) in the Catholic Church; (3) mandatory subdermal micro computer chips in the body; (4) mandatory vaccines for a pandemic virus; and (5) martial law. Also, we should call upon Jesus’ Name: (6) upon the failure of the economy of the USA & its bankruptcy; (7) when the North American Union (merging of Canada, USA & Mexico) takes place; (8) when the Antichrist declares himself; (9) when people start dying in large numbers from pandemic disease; (10) when riots for food begin; (11) when we see men in black trying to take captives in the USA; (12) upon religious persecution; (13) when they threaten to kill Christians; and (14) at the beginning of the Tribulation. At such time, our guardian angels will lead us to the nearest refuge.
It is IMPERATIVE that we leave IMMEDIATELY upon being called by our guardian angel. Those who fail to leave immediately, will be captured by evil men, taken to the death camps and martyred. Further, He told us to have our bicycles and backpacks packed and ready to go with some warm clothing, food, supplies, etc. Set everything that we are going to take with us aside now, as we will have no time to search for them upon being called to leave.
Through John Leary, Jesus asked us to prepare His priests for the forthcoming Tribulation by preparing them to flee to the refuges. He told us to be prepared to help guide the priests with His help via prayer when He warns us that it is time to flee.
Additionally, we will be invisible to evil men once we are underway traveling to the refuges and while residing there. (cf. Acts 12)
Food, water, supplies, clothing and shelter will be provided miraculously when those consecrated to the Immaculate Heart are called by their guardian angels into hiding at the refuges at the time of the persecution of Christians during the Tribulation. We will be fully-protected by Almighty God at the refuges for the duration of the Tribulation. [Refer to “To the Refuges on Wings of Eagles” at the Call To Holiness site; to “Home Protection – Food and Water Purification” below; and to #390,402,421,422.]
Remedies: Home Protection – Food & Water Purification
Our Lord has been preparing us for the Tribulation for many years. In the LINKS section of the Yahoo-Era of Peace site under the subdirectory entitled: “Home Protection – Food & Water Purification” we have accumulated such messages relating to physical preparations.
There you will find messages in which He told us how to purify food and water; to take Hawthorn supplements to boost our immune systems; to prepare back packs with some warm clothing, supplies and food to take with us as we leave for the refuges, to have bicycles in working order to ride to the refuges, and much more. He told us to set aside some extra food, water, fuel and supplies for Him to multiply during the Tribulation (1 Kgs 17, Jn 6).
Jesus told us to bless our homes in specific manner with blessed salt, holy water, blessed crucifixes/medals (each blessed by a Catholic priest). These are the blood of the Lamb that will protect us during the Tribulation. They will not only protect us from the plagues of revelation, but will make our homes invisible to evil men who will be seeking us. [Refer to “Tribulation Protection: The Blood of the Lamb” at the Call To Holiness site for the specific instructions of Jesus. Also, proceed to the LINKS section of the Yahoo – Era of Peace site to read the various other messages of preparation in their entirety under the subdirectory: “Home Protection – Food & Water Purification”. Also, refer to #384,390.]

Remember that the purpose of prophecy is not to predict the future, but to explain the will of God for the present, and therefore show the right path to take for the future.

· The Sacraments – Receive the sacraments as often as you can. When in the state of mortal sin, you MUST make a sacramental confession in order to receive Holy Communion. [Catechism of the Catholic Church paragraph 1385]
· Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Great graces are received in this manner. When praying the rosary in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, the Immaculate and Sacred Hearts are united in a special way. Great strength and peace are obtained in this manner
· Holy Water and Sacramentals. Use holy water and blessed salt frequently to bless your house, car, children, pets, etc. Blessed sacramentals are useful in warding off Satan. He hates them. The devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus was given as a special devotion for the end times. The image of the Sacred Heart around your neck, and in your house provide very special graces. Use and wear the St. Benedict crucifix and the Brown Scapular.
Rosary. The Rosary is extremely powerful. Praying it has stopped the forces
of nature, and wars. During the 1980’s the bishops of the Philippines asked
their parishioners to pray the rosary to defeat the onerous Marcos regime.
Shortly thereafter, the Marcos regime imploded, and he was run out of the
country. During World War II, Fr. Schiffer and his brother priests lived in
Pray the rosary daily. Buy an CD of it being said, and pray with it as you commute to work each day. Our Lady said that each bead of the Rosary said is a tear of joy in heaven. She also said that when you pray the Rosary, you can multiply its impact by (1) asking all of the angels and saints to join with you in reciting it, and (2) uniting it with all of the Masses, rosaries and prayers said on that day. [Refer to “Thank You For Having Respond To My Call” at the Call To Holiness Site and to #278,343.].
The power of prayer is incomprehensible, and can change prophesized events. Consider the following: “In those days, when Hezekiah was mortally ill, the prophet Isaiah, son of Amoz, came and said to him: "Thus says the LORD: 'Put your house in order, for you are about to die; you shall not recover.'" He turned his face to the wall and prayed to the LORD: "O LORD, remember how faithfully and wholeheartedly I conducted myself in your presence, doing what was pleasing to you!" And Hezekiah wept bitterly. Before Isaiah had left the central courtyard, the word of the LORD came to him: "Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people: 'Thus says the LORD, the God of your forefather David: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears. I will heal you. In three days you shall go up to the LORD'S temple; I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria; I will be a shield to this city for my own sake, and for the sake of my servant David.'" (2 Kgs 20:1-6)
There are a number of other points that are noteworthy in the passage above: (a) through Isaiah, God predicted that Hezekiah would die; (b) such prediction did not state that it was conditional; (c) Hezekiah responded in prayer and repentance, and God relented; (d) the prophecy was not fulfilled due to the infinite mercy of God; and (e) in spite of the fact that the prophecy was not realized, Isaiah is not considered a false prophet. We hasten to add that Jesus stated that we shall know them by their fruits, not by whether the specified predictions were realized.
· The Angels and Saints. Call upon the angels and saints for assistance in times of need. Saint Joseph, the Protector, has been declared the saint of these times, and has been given special power [Refer to #226.]. Call upon the Archangels: St. Michael for protection, St. Gabriel for strength, and St. Raphael for healing [Refer to “Heaven and Earth Are Uniting” at the Call To Holiness Site.]. Pray to your guardian angels daily.
· The Devotion to the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ – a very powerful devotion that is particularly efficacious during the Tribulation. [Refer to #336,337,340]
· The Chaplet of Divine Mercy. [Refer to #44.]
· Indulgences. Through her power granted by Jesus Christ, the Church has granted certain indulgences for acts of piety and devotion, etc. that remove temporal punishment due to our sins. Remember that at end of the Warning we will see where we would have resided in either Heaven, Purgatory or Hell if we died then. Use indulgences to make your after life and Warning experience more pleasant experiences. A list of partial and plenary indulgences is available in the LINKS section of the Yahoo Era of Peace site under the subdirectory entitled: “Prayers and Prayer Petitions Online”. (cf. Act 26).
”He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, who abides in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust." For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence; he will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand; but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked. Because you have made the LORD your refuge, the Most High your habitation, no evil shall befall you, no scourge come near your tent. For he will give his angels charge of you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the adder, the young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot. Because he cleaves to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him my salvation.” (Psa 91)
Jesus said: “Now when these things begin to take place, look up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near." (Lk 21:28)
Rejoice! We win! Jesus is returning soon!
May Almighty God bless and protect you and your family.

Third Edition – December 2013
NOTE: We respectfully recognize and accept the final authority regarding apparitions, locutions and prophecies presently being reported around the world rests with the Holy See of Rome and the Magisterium of Holy Mother Church to whose judgment we humbly and obediently submit.
The web site, era-of-peace, together with its mother web site, www.call2holiness.org
have been designed to serve a very unique purpose. As discussed in greater detail on the home page of era-of-peace, it is used in conjunction with its mother site to assist and guide all of God's children through the Tribulation of the book of Revelation.
Accordingly, primary emphasis has been given to the accumulation of few archived messages at the era-of-peace web site, as opposed to many individual emailed messages to members. Our intention is to build a relatively small base of messages, to facilitate the painting of the "big" picture as eschatology is realized daily. As new members join, especially during the foretold confusion associated with the Warning, they will see for themselves the foretold events materializing together with supporting evidence.
We invite you to visit the collection of archived messages, databases, files and links to view the picture that is being developed. The databases, archived messages, files and
links can be found in the respective sections of: http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/era-of-peace/info
