Yes, he really did. And I’ll get to that in a moment; first, a few forenotes. I finally finished the audiobook for The Crown of History; I’ve posted it for free on YouTube here, and it will soon be available through Audible on the book’s page on Amazon. Also, just a reminder that I’ll be speaking this weekend at the Divine Will International Unity Conference in Arlington, Texas; along with Mark Mallett, Fr. Elijah, and others. I believe there may still be some spots available. Finally, bulk discounted orders of the paperback of the Crown of History can now be ordered directly here.
Here we stand at penultimate Sunday of Ordinary Time before embarking upon the great season of Advent, in which we await with eager expectation the imminent Coming of Christ.
And, quite fittingly, the Holy Father chose this day to announce, with no ambiguity, that the Kingdom of God will soon come upon earth; that this Kingdom is indeed the Crown of History:
The destruction of the Temple pre-announced by Jesus is the figure not so much of the end [i.e. chronological cessation] of history, as of the end of history [i.e. purpose of history itself]….This is the eloquent sign that the Kingdom of God is coming to us, namely, that the realization of the world as God wills it is approaching. It is He who leads our existence and who knows the ultimate end of things and of events.The Lord calls us to collaborate in the construction of history becoming, together with Him, agents of peace and witnesses of hope in a future of salvation and resurrection. Faith makes us walk with Jesus on the torturous ways of this world, in the certainty that the force of His Spirit will subdue the forces of evil…
—Pope Francis. Angelus Address. November 17, 2019.
This, indeed, is the entire purpose of Jesus’ revelations to Luisa: that, after 6,000 years of arduous preparations, the time is finally ripe to renew the world to be fully in accordance with God’s Will, so that the Will of God may indeed be done on Earth as it is done in Heaven.
The realization of the greatest petition of the greatest prayer in history; the only prayer taught by the Son of God Himself — Thy Will be Done on Earth as It Is in Heaven — is no pipe dream. It is the very definition of certain, and 2+2 is more likely to stop being 4 than is history to end without seeing the fulfillment of The Our Father prayer.
Dear brethren in Christ, never forget that, and never doubt it. Instead, dedicate yourself to hastening its arrival.
Thy Kingdom Come!
