I have no prophecies or predictions to offer regarding what will or will not begin in the next few days; only some observations of things I find significant in heeding Our Lord’s call to observe the Signs of the Times (Matthew 16:3), irrespective of what specifics they do or do not portend. And whatever does, or does not, wind up happening in the upcoming days, one thing is certain: God is on the move, and the present sad era, dark and bloody, will soon pass — through global Chastisements of, literally, Biblical proportions — and give way to the Glorious Era of Peace. Our calling is equally certain: to pray, repent, get to confession, become saints, Live in the Divine Will, proclaim the Divine Mercy, and Proclaim the Kingdom. I present the observations that follow, therefore, in the same spirit I always present such things: merely as an exhortation and an aid to be more zealous in engaging in The Mission God has entrusted to us.
June 24th is the 40th anniversary of the apparitions at Medjugorje, which continue to this day. I am of course aware of the controversial nature of these apparitions and I will submit to the Church’s judgment when she renders it, but I do believe the apparitions are authentic (as I described in this post, 11 years ago, upon returning from a pilgrimage there).
Here is what Jesus tells the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta about the importance of a 40-Year Period:
“My daughter, do you think that My keeping you imprisoned for forty years and more has been by chance, without a great design of Mine? No! no! The number forty has always been significant and preparatory to great works. For forty years the Jews walked in the desert without being able to reach the Promised Land, their fatherland; but after forty years of sacrifices they had the good of taking possession of it. But, how many miracles, how many graces, to the point of nourishing them with the celestial manna during that time. A prolonged sacrifice has the virtue and strength to obtain great things from God. I Myself, during My Life down here, wanted to remain in the desert for forty days, away from all, even from My Mother, to then go out in public to announce the Gospel which was to form the life of My Church-that is, the Kingdom of Redemption. For forty days I wanted to remain as risen, to confirm My Resurrection and to place the seal upon all the goods of Redemption. So I wanted for you, My daughter: in order to manifest the Kingdom of My Divine Will, I wanted forty years of sacrifices.” -October 10, 1928
Medjugorje has now inspired 40 years of sacrifices: prayers, fasting, works of mercy, evangelization, vocations, and so on. I have no doubt that God will work wonders on earth with the treasures in Heaven that have been built up through these decades of worldwide responses to Our Lady’s call. I have no doubt that God, through these 40 years of sacrifices He inspired, is preparing to manifest the Kingdom of the Divine Will.
The Medjugorje seers have been entrusted with “Secrets,” some of which detail the Chastisements the world will soon face. The Time of the Secrets begins when the apparition’s messages stop; that time seems to be very close, as only one of the seers — Marija — regularly receives public messages now (although Ivan and Marija continue to receive their own daily apparitions). Mirjana’s hitherto reliable Second of the Month messages ceased only last year — after 39 years of continuity.
The Final Battle
June 24th is also the Solemnity of St. John the Baptist: forerunner of Christ who prepared the way for the Messiah, and martyr for the sanctity of marriage.
June 24th is also the 71st anniversary of the canonization of St. Maria Goretti — that great martyr of purity.
These two saints best symbolize the apocalyptic battle the world finds itself in today. As we know from the Servant of God Sr. Lucia of Fatima:
“The final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family…anyone who operates for the sanctity of marriage and the family will always be contended and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue.”
Admit it: you yourself, a mere few decades ago, could not have even imagined that the institution of marriage could be treated so perversely as it is today.
This reminds us of what Jesus assures Luisa: that evil will first be allowed to “exhaust itself” before He cleanses the world through Chastisements, in order to prepare the ground for the Reign of His Will. On February 8th, 1921, He told her:
“O iniquitous world, you are doing everything you can to cast Me away from the face of the earth, to banish Me from society, from schools, from conversations – from everything. …Ah, my daughter, the creature rages more and more in evil! How many machinations of ruin they are preparing! They will reach the point of exhausting evil itself. But while they are occupied with following their own way, I will be occupied with making the Fiat Voluntas Tua have Its completion and fulfillment, and making my Will reign upon the earth …”
And that is precisely what evil now appears to be on the brink of doing: exhausting itself. Reaching the very darkest depths possible. Need I do any more here than point out that, in the western world today, not even the youngest children are exempt from mainstream culture foisting upon them the most degenerate propaganda that history has ever produced? And all of this degeneracy now has the affirmative endorsement of Governments and of the most powerful corporations and cultural institutions on earth — and is more and more infecting the ranks of the Church herself — while those who are sane enough to call it what it is (based not only on infallible Biblical and Magisterial Truths, but also on the most simple applications of common sense) are condemned as “bigots,” accused of “hate speech,” and then “cancelled” or even prosecuted. And all this diabolical persecution is, of course, undertaken in the name of “love, equality, and compassion.” “The hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God.” John 16:2
In sum, it is getting more and more difficult — if not practically impossible — to argue that we have anything left to wait for in order for evil to have truly “exhausted itself.”
Faustina’s Last Vision
June 24th is also the 83rd anniversary of a prophetic vision given to St. Faustina only a few months before her death. In section 1796 of her diary, we read:
“Today, I saw the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the sky, in the midst of a great brilliance. The rays were issuing from the Wound [in His side] and spreading out over the entire world.”
(The footnote on this passage explains that “It can be supposed that Sister Faustina had the vision of the Heart of Jesus on the Friday after the Octave of Corpus Christi; i.e., on June 24, 1938.“)
This is one of the final entries in St. Faustina’s diary, and it is the last vision recorded by her.
Perhaps St. Faustina was here given a vision of one of the Great Miraculous Signs which will help convert the world — Signs also revealed to seers at Medjugorje, Garabandal, and elsewhere.
Much is made — rightly so! — of the vision St. Faustina had towards the beginning of her diary (in paragraph 83), a vision which likely does refer to The Warning.
But there is something unique about this last vision of Faustina’s: it speaks, I wager, of worldwide miraculous consolation, for it is the wound in His Sacred Heart which is, in this case, the source of the graces “spreading out over the entire world.” When exactly this will be or what exactly it will consist in, I do not know, but I do know that the world is in dire need of a Divine Intervention like this.
The Dragon’s Response: The Coming Delusion
As I’ve cautioned numerous times recently (see my last post especially), the coming Diabolical Grand Delusion will likely be hastened by widespread belief in aliens, perhaps itself egged on like never before through the impending release of the US Government’s hitherto classified “UFO Files.” The release of these files is set for none other than this very month. I don’t anticipate the report itself being particularly astounding, but I am greatly concerned about how it will be used by those with nefarious ends in the time after its release.
Now, the Book of Revelation, Chapter 12, says the following:
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.
If Our Lady does indeed have something great in store for us this month — whether some extraordinary sign or just a quiet inner outpouring of graces into our hearts — the Devil is likely aware. And if he is aware, then he is doubtless preparing his own diabolical response to do his best to steal away those graces from the world. At the moment, I can think of no more effective strategy he would employ than to try to convince the world that “aliens” exist, and perhaps are even now in contact with us, and perhaps even have teachings to impart to us. Thus, with this Diabolical plot, the Devil (the Dragon of Revelation), “stands before the woman” so as to devour the graces of her Divine Son which she is about to mediate to the world (“to devour her child when she brought it forth”). But the woman — now, the Church (“The Woman” of Revelation indeed refers to both the Church and Our Lady) — is protected as she “flees into the wilderness where she has a place prepared by God;” that is, refuges — whether spiritual or physical I do not want to now address — where she will be protected from the 3.5 year (1,260 days) reign of the Antichrist.
Be on guard. “Aliens,” though they constitute a particularly dangerous delusion (there are no aliens –– only demons using the guise of aliens to issue demonic directives to unsuspecting souls just as they use Ouija Boards and Seances to do the same), are ultimately just one of many delusions soon coming, which I dedicated this post to addressing.
I must close by emphasizing what I began with: I am not issuing any predictions, so please do not expect anything specific to transpire on the world stage in the coming few days on account of what I’ve written here. If I had to guess, I suppose I’d say that I suspect things will remain on the quiet side a bit longer, as God’s greatest initiatives often do begin in silence. On the other hand, it certainly would be fitting for God to now act in a new and extraordinary way.
Either way, we do not need to know dates or specifics. We only need to know God’s Will, and faithfully do it.
“Let your loins be girded and your lamps burning, and be like men who are waiting for their master to come home from the marriage feast, so that they may open to him at once when he comes and knocks. Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes…”
