Our redemption is drawing near

The summary version, see here: History. XXI Century. Completion. Summary

Jesus Christ tells us that “Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled (ἄχρι πληρωθῶσιν καιροὶ ἐθνῶν)” (Luk 21:24). When these things begin to take place, it means that our redemption is drawing near (Luk 21:28).

24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Ис 13, 10. Иез 32, 7. Иоил 2, 31. Иоил 3, 15. Ам 5, 20. Ам 8, 9. Соф 1, 15. Мф 24, 29. Мк 13, 24.
26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Дан 7, 10. Мк 13, 26.
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Рим 8, 23.
Luk 21:24-28

In June of 1967, as a result of the Six Day War, Jerusalem returned under the full control of Israel. In 1980, the Knesset adopted the «Jerusalem Law» as a Basic Law, declaring Jerusalem «complete and united», «the capital of Israel». This means that according to the prophecy of Jesus Christ (Luk 21:24), “the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”

The spectacular and widely witnessed public appearances of the Virgin Mary occurred over and around the Coptic Orthodox Church of St. Mary in Zeitoun, a busy Cairo suburb from April 2, 1968 until May 29, 1971. Hegumen Varsonofii (Khaibulin) sees this Apparitions as signs of the promised times of grace, times of refreshing (καιροί ἀναψύξεως) (Act 3:20). He links the Apparitions of the Mother of God in Zeitun with the fulfilment of the prophecy Luk 21:24 and with the begining of the destined times of grace.

The apostle Paul speaks of the coming conversion of Israel, that “blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in (ἄχρις οὗ τὸ πλήρωμα τῶν ἐθνῶν εἰσέλθῃ)” (Rom 11:25). The time is near when “a blessing will be in the midst of the land” (Isa 19:24-25), when the people, the saints of the Most High, are receiving “the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven” (Dan 7:18,22,27).

We are all saved through faith in Christ Jesus

The summary version, see here: History. XXI Century. Completion. Summary

The Messiah “came not to judge the world, but to save the world (ἵνα σώσω τὸν κόσμον)” (Jhn 12:47). We are His least brothers and He will not let anyone harm us: “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me” (Mat 25:40). Now “you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus (Πάντες γὰρ υἱοὶ θεοῦ ἐστε διὰ τῆς πίστεως ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ)” (Gal 3:26). “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast(Eph 2:8-9). “He that believeth on him is not condemned” (Jhn 3:18).

47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. Ин 3, 17.
Jhn 12:47

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Ис 9, 6. Мк 16, 16. Ин 6, 40. 1 Ин 4, 9-10.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. Ин 1, 5. Ин 8, 12.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
Jhn.3:16-21

But if anyone deliberately opposes the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven either in this age or in the forthcoming age (οὔτε ἐν τῷ μέλλοντι) (Mat.12:32). Resisting the Holy Spirit, it is when someone deliberately decides to resist the obvious truth. This is fighting against God. In this case, the sinner will have to go through the pains of purification in this or the coming century.

“God is a just judge” (Ps.7:11) and The Court of God gives a man only a fair verdict, so the sinner “shall be saved; yet so as by fire” (1Co.3:15). The sinners necessarily “shall be punished(2Th.1:9) from the presence of Almighty God. “Do not plot to repeat a sin; even for one, you will not go unpunished” (Сир.7:8). This is the benefit of this century's suffering and of the purgatorial fire of the coming age.

31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. Мк 3, 28. Лк 12, 10. 1 Ин 5, 16.
32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost (ὃς δ᾽ ἂν εἴπῃ κατὰ τοῦ πνεύματος τοῦ ἁγίου), it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world (οὔτε ἐν τούτῳ τῷ αἰῶνι), neither in the world to come (οὔτε ἐν τῷ μέλλοντι).
33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
Mat.12:31-33

14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
1Co.3:14-15

22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
Luk.16:22-24

23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. Лк 12, 58.
26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
Mat.5:23-26

O death, where is thy sting?

The summary version, see here: History. XXI Century. Completion. Summary

Apostol Paul told us a mystery, that “we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed” (1Co 15:51). Finally, the death will be swallowed up in victory (1Co 15:54), forever (Isa 25:8). “The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death(1Co 15:26).

51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 1 Фес 4, 17.
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. Мф 24, 31. Ин 5, 28. 1 Фес 4, 16.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. Ис 25, 8.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? Ос 13, 14.
1Co 15:51-55

8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it. 1 Кор 15, 54. Откр 7, 17. Откр 21, 4.
9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation. Ос 13, 14. Ин 3, 36. Евр 2, 14.
Isa 25:8-9

Metropolitan Vitaly Ustinov teaches us how to overcome death by prayer: “The Lord has promised us that the true church will go through all the vicissitudes and live up to the End of the World. … Try to pray with the heart, for when you pray with your heart, you pray with all your being. Your prayer will reach the Throne of the Almighty, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Almighty Eternal God, from Whom you will receive such grace, such a force, which had all Holy Protomartyrs.” (December 25, 2001).

The Lord has promised us that the true church will go through all the vicissitudes and live up to the End of the World.

Our Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, conquers the world, putting everything in subjection under his feet. But until that time the world will prosecute, torment and mock you, will treat you as half-mad ones.

Be brave, because you will be fools in Christ. And thank God for all with the shortest prayer: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.” Ask pardon from Him. And if we will be pardoned from God we should not worry that the world considers us crazy.

Try to pray with the heart, for when you pray with your heart, you pray with all your being. Your prayer will reach the Throne of the Almighty, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Almighty Eternal God, from Whom you will receive such grace, such a force, which had all Holy Protomartyrs.

Metropolitan Vitaly (Ustinov)
Christmas Epistle and Spiritual Testament
December 25, 2001

Sister Lucia dos Santos, to whom the Mother of God was appearing in 1917 and 1929, attaches great importance to the Rosary: “the Rosary is not only a Marian prayer, but also a Eucharistic prayer”. The Rosary prayer is available to everybody and always. Sister Lucia hopes “that the day will not be long in coming in which the prayer of the Holy Rosary will be declared liturgical prayer”.

And may it be that Portugal, so devoted to the Eucharist and to Mary, becomes the first nation to recognize that the prayer of the Rosary is not only a Marian prayer, but also a Eucharistic prayer. And therefore, nothing should prevent one from praying before the Blessed Sacrament.

Therefore, it is necessary to pray the Rosary

Letter to Maria Teresa
Coimbra, Dec. 4, 1970.

I have great hope that the day will not be long in coming in which the prayer of the Holy Rosary will be declared liturgical prayer. Yes, because all of it forms part of the Liturgy of the Most Holy Eucharist. We pray, work, sacrifice ourselves and trust that — “In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph!”

Since 1981 the Mother of God is appearing in Medjugorje, Bosnia and Herzegovina. She is talking to six visionaries. Virgin Mary delivers messages for the whole world via some of these visionaries.

Our Lady of Medjugorje came to us to lead us to holiness:
    “may your life be unceasing prayer” (2010-09-25),
    “I call you, little children, to holiness, to eternal life” (2014-05-25),
    “Little children, decide also today for holiness” (2015-10-25),
    “go to confession and decide for holiness” (2014-03-25),
    “Leave sin and decide, little children, for holiness” (2011-05-25).

The Blessed Virgin Mary reminds us of the Creator's calls:
    “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect” (Mat 5:48),
    men ought always to pray, and not to faint (Luk 18:1),
    “Be ye holy; for I am holy” (1Pe 1:16),
    “Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy” (Lev 19:2).

The Virgin reminds us, Her children, how to go to Her to Heaven:
    “For those who will live the word of my Son and who will love, death will be life(2015-08-02).
    “Because all that is of this world, which many of my children, unfortunately, put in the first place, will disappear; and only love and works of love will remain and open the door of the Kingdom of Heaven. I will wait for you at this door. At this door, I desire to welcome and embrace all of my children” (2015-11-02).

It is time for us to be born again, born from above, born to eternal life in heaven. The time has already arrived, but we still do not have the sense to come out of the womb (Hos 13:13).

12 The iniquity of Ephraim is bound up; his sin is hid. Иов 14, 17. Иер 17, 1.
13 The sorrows of a travailing woman shall come upon him: he is an unwise son; for he should not stay long in the place of the breaking forth of children. Быт 35, 18.
14 I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes. Пс 15, 10. Пс 55, 14. Деян 10, 42. 1 Кор 15, 55. Евр 2, 14.
Hos 13:12-14

Our Lady of Fatima

The summary version, see here: History. XXI Century. Completion. Summary

In the year 1917, at the place called Cova-da-Iria not far from the village of Fatima in Portugal, the Mother of God was appearing to three shepherd children during six consecutive months beginning on May 13.

The Virgin Mar said to the children that, in order to save sinners, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to Her Immaculate Heart.

To accomplish this the Pope must:
1) consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and
2) establish the practice of the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays of the month.

If the requests of Our Lady are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace.

The Virgin Mary asked to keep these requests in secret until She comes later.

On June 13, 1929, Holy Trinity and Our Lady appeared to Lucia Santos at Tuy, Spain. Our Lady informed Lucia that the moment had come in which She wished Lucia to make known to Holy Church Her desire for the Consecration of Russia, and Her promise to convert Russia.
The Virgin Mary told Lucia:
“The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father, in union with all the Bishops of the world, to make the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, promising to save it by this means.
There are so many souls whom the Justice of God condemns for sins committed against me, that I have come to ask reparation: sacrifice yourself for this intention and pray.”

It is a request of God the Creator Almighty, Who addresses the bishops of the Catholic Church via the Virgin Mary. The request was ignored and the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of the Mother of God was not accomplished.

In August of 1931, in an intimate communication, Our Lord complained to Sister Lucy, saying:
“They did not wish to heed my request!… Like the King of France, they will repent and do it, but it will be late. Russia will have already spread her errors throughout the world, provoking wars, and persecutions of the Church: the Holy Father will have much to suffer.”

Various branches of the Lord's Church prefer not to come to terms with each other but try to defeat each other. In this way it is very possible to be “consumed by one another” (Gal 5:15).

14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Лев 19, 18. Мф 5, 43. Мк 12, 31. Иак 2, 8. Рим 13, 8.
15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
Gal 5:14-15

In 1689 Margaret Mary Alacoque had addressed to Louis XIV, the King of France, with the Lord's requirement of the consecration of France to His Sacred Heart. This requirement has been ignored. As a result, exactly one hundred years later, the French Revolution happened. And about three and a half years after the Revolution's inception (1789-06-17 — 1793-01-21) the King Louis XVI was beheaded.

One hundred years: June 13, 1929June 13, 2029.
On June 13, 1929, Mother of God requested Consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart. One hundred years expiring June 13, 2029.

«End of Times» after Pope Benedict XVI

The summary version, see here: History. XXI Century. Completion. Summary

1961-06-18 — 1965-11-13
The Apparitions of Our Lady in Garabandal, Northwest Spain.

From June 18, 1961 the Angel appeared to them several times and then on July 1, he spoke for the first time announcing that on the following day, July 2, the Blessed Virgin would appear to them as Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Apparitions lasted until Saturday, 13 of November, 1965, when Conchita González saw Our Lady for the last time. There were about 2000 apparitions.

According to Conchita Gonzalez, the primary visionary at Garabandal, after John XXIII there are only four Popes left until the «End of Time». Benedict XVI was fourth Pope after John XXIII. Consequently, the «End of Time» should be during the reign of the next Pope after Benedict XVI.

List of last Roman Popes:
Throne Name
 
Pontificate
Pius XII 2 March 1939 — 9 October 1958
John XXIII 28 October 1958 — 3 June 1963
Paul VI 21 June 1963 — 6 August 1978
John Paul I 26 August 1978 — 28 September 1978
John Paul II 16 October 1978 — 2 April 2005
Benedict XVI 19 April 2005 — 28 February 2013
Francis I 13 March 2013 —

March 13, 2013 began the pontificate of Pope Francis I.

Hence, the «End of Time» — the time now.

Penultimate Pope

The summary version, see here: History. XXI Century. Completion. Summary

The figure on the right shows the final part of the «Prophecy of the Popes» in «Lignum Vitæ» (1595), p. 311

The «Prophecy of the Popes» was first published in 1595 by Arnold de Wyon, as part of his book (lat. «Lignum Vitæ») [Arnold de Wyon. Lignum Vitæ. 1595]. This prophecy is attributed to St. Malachy (1094—1148), the Archbishop of Armagh in Ireland.

The Prophecy consists of 111 short single-line paragraphs and two multiple-line paragraphs. These 113 paragraphs describe the Roman Popes, beginning from Pope Celestine II (whose papacy has begun on September 25, 1143).

At the table below the original Latin text of the Prophecy of the Popes (including punctuation and orthography) is shown against a dark background.

Motto (latin)    Pope's Name (latin)    Explanation (latin)
Pope No.    Motto No. and translation    Regnal Name (Reign)    Explanation
Ex caſtro Tiberis.    Cœleſtinus. ij.    Typhernas.
167    1. From a castle of the Tiber.    Celestine II (1143—1144)    An inhabitant of Tifernum.
   ...    ...    ...
...    ...    ...    ...
Gloria oliuæ.
267    111. Glory of the olive.    Benedict XVI (2005—2013)    Chose the name Benedict after St. Benedict who started the Benedictine order whose Crest is an Olive Branch.
In psecutione extrema S.R.E. ſedebit.
268    112. In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit.    Francis (2013—)    His motto, «Miserando atque eligendo», is taken from a homily of St. Bede on Мat 9:9-13, who commented that Jesus "saw the tax collector and, because he saw him through the eyes of mercy and chose him, he said to him: 'Follow me'".
Petrus Romanus, qui paſcet oues in multis tribulationibus: quibus tranſactis ciuitas ſepticollis diruetur, & Iudex tremẽdus iudicabit populum ſuum. Finis.
269    113. Peter the Roman, who will nourish the sheep in many tribulations; when they are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The end.

According to the «Prophecy of the Popes» of Saint Malachy of Armagh, Benedict XVI is the third from the end Roman Pope, associating with the 111th motto lat. «Gloria Oliuae» (eng. «Glory of the olive»). After Benedict XVI the Church will have two more Popes.

According to the «Prophecy of the Popes» the Penultimate Roman Pope (i.e. Pope Francis I) will reign «In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church»: 112 Motto: «In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit» (lat. «In psecutione extrema S.R.E. ſedebit»).

2032. Last Pontificat

The summary version, see here: History. XXI Century. Completion. Summary

There exists a fascinating hypothesis related to the «Prophecy of the Popes» written by St. Malachy of Armagh. The phrase «Axle in the midst of a sign» (lat. «Axis in medietate ſigni»), which describes the pontificate of Sixtus V, can be interpreted as pointing out the exact middle of the reign of all the Popes described in the prophecy. In support of such a thesis we have the claim of Jean-Paul Cleber (Clébert, Jean-Paul, Prophéties de Nostradamus, 2003) which states that in the dictionaries of XVI century the Latin word for «sign» could also mean «prophecy». So, the phrase «Axis in medietate ſigni» could be translated as the «Axis of the middle of the prophecy».

Using this, try to calculate the time of the end of the «Prophecy of the Popes»:

The pontificate of Celestine II, the first Pope of the prophecy, began on September 26, 1143. The papacy of Sixtus V began on April 24, 1585 and ended on August 27, 1590. The middle of his reign falls on December 25, 1587. We are going to consider this date as the «Axis of the middle of the prophecy». Between September 26, 1143 and December 25, 1587 there are 162251 days. If we add as many days to December 25, 1587, we arrive at Thursday, March 18, 2032.

Therefore, Thursday, March 18, 2032 must be the last day of the pontificate of the last Pope, i.e. year 2032 marks the end of the Papacy.

It is interesting to note that from September 26, 1143 to March 18, 2032 there will pass 888 years and 174 days. The gematria of the name Jesus, «Ιησους», makes up the number
888 = (Ι=10) + (η=8) + (σ=200) + (ο=70) + (υ=400) + (σ=200).

The devil is ready for a decisive battle
against the Blessed Virgin

The summary version, see here: History. XXI Century. Completion. Summary

On December 26, 1957 Sister Lucia dos Santos, one of the visionaries of Fatima, told Father Fuentes:
“… the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Blessed Virgin. … the devil does everything to overcome souls consecrated to God, because in this way the devil will succeed in leaving the souls of the faithful abandoned by their leaders. … The devil knows that religious and priests who fall away from their beautiful vocation drag numerous souls to hell…”

«THE DECISIVE BATTLE» BETWEEN MARY AND SATAN:
THE FALLING AWAY OF CONSECRATED SOULS AND PRIESTS

Sister Lucy also told me: Father, the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Blessed Virgin. And the devil knows what it is that most offends God and which in a short space of time will gain for him the greatest number of souls. Thus the devil does everything to overcome souls consecrated to God, because in this way the devil will succeed in leaving the souls of the faithful abandoned by their leaders, thereby the more easily will he seize them.[7]

That which afflicts the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Heart of Jesus is the fall of religious and priestly souls. The devil knows that religious and priests who fall away from their beautiful vocation drag numerous souls to hell… The devil wishes to take possession of consecrated souls. He tries to corrupt them in order to lull to sleep the souls of laypeople and thereby lead them to final impenitence. He employs all tricks, even going so far as to suggest the delay of entrance into religious life. Resulting from this is the sterility of the interior life, and among the laypeople, coldness (lack of enthusiasm) regarding the subject of renouncing pleasures and the total dedication of themselves to God.


[7] The English version is more precise than the French version here. It was first published by Father Ryan in Fatima Findings, June 1959. This version was followed by the Messagero del Cuore de Maria, no. 8-9, August-September 1961, Rome. Cf. Abbé Georges de Nantes, Lettres à mes amis, Vol. II, 1963 and CRC 87, December 1974, p. 12.

Frere Michel de la Sainte Trinite
The Whole Truth About Fatima
Vol.III, Prt.I, Ch.X

From the third message of Our Lady of Akita. October 13, 1973.

‹…› The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church. One will see cardinals opposing other cardinals… and bishops confronting other bishops.

The priests who venerate me will be scorned and condemned by their confreres; churches and altars will be sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will tempt many priests and religious to leave the service of the Lord.

The demon is trying hard to influence souls consecrated to God. The thought of the perdition of so many souls is the cause of My sadness. If sins continue to be committed further, there will no longer be pardon for them. ‹…›

The Great Persecution of the Church

The summary version, see here: History. XXI Century. Completion. Summary

On May 11, 2010, during the flight to Potugal, the Holy Father Benedict XVI told the journalists that “the greatest persecution of the Church comes not from her enemies without, but arises from sin within the Church.”

He linked present sufferings of the Church because of the sexual abuse of minors by clergy with the content of the Third Secret of Fatima given to three shepherds in 1917. According to him in the Third Secret “an indication is given of realities involving the future of the Church, which are gradually taking shape and becoming evident”. The Pope added that even “today we are seeing it in a really terrifying way”.

According to the «Prophecy of the Popes», the Penultimate Pope will govern the faithfull «In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church». According to Benedict XVI “the greatest persecution of the Church”, related to “the future of the Church”, already today is seeing “in a really terrifying way”.

It means that the Final Great Persecution against the Church should be developed with the full force during the pontificate of the new pope, Pope Francis I, the Penultimate Pope.

Great Tribulation,
such as has not been since the beginning of the world

The summary version, see here: History. XXI Century. Completion. Summary

The Great Tribulation is a consequence of The Great Persecution of the Curch.

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be (Mat 24:21).

When the Church is on the brink of disappearance then the world which is fallen away from Christ, from «the light of the world» (Jhn 8:12), plunged into «the power of darkness» (Luk 22:53).

In an interview with Dr. William Thomas Walsh, american historian, which was held Monday, July 15, 1946, Sister Lucia Santos said that every country, without exception, will be overcome by Communism.

Lucia made it plain that Our Lady did not ask for the consecration of the world to her Immaculate Heart. What she demanded specifically was the consecration of Russia. She did not comment, of course, on the fact that Pope Pius XII had consecrated the world, not Russia, to the Immaculate Heart in 1942. But she said more than once, and with deliberate emphasis:

— “What Our Lady wants is that the Pope and all the bishops in the world shall Consecrate Russia to Her Immaculate Heart on one special day. If this is done, She will convert Russia and there will be peace. If it is not done, the errors of Russia will spread through every country in the world.”

— “Does this mean, in your opinion, that every country, without exception, will be overcome by Communism?”

— “Yes.”

It was plain that she felt that Our Lady's wishes had not yet been carried out. People must say the Rosary, perform sacrifices, make the five first Saturday Communions, pray for the Holy Father.

— “Did Our Lady ever say anything to you about the United States of America?”

She gave me a rather startled glance, and then smiled in faint amusement, as if to suggest that perhaps the United States was not so important in the general scheme of things as I imagined.

— “No,” she said gently.

— “She never did. But I wish you would have Masses sad for me in the United States!”

I promised, and she said she would pray for me.

Mari Loli, one of the Garabandal visionaries, describes the vision of the great tribulation associated with the upcoming return of Communism:
“we saw a great multitude of people who were suffering intensely and screaming in terror. … would come because a time would arrive when the Church would appear to be on the point of perishing. … it was «Communism»”.

Below is the message bearing the signature of Mari Loli that was presented by her to Maria Saraco. It was published in 1970 by Fernand Corteville in his newsletter L'Impartial (No.31):

In spite of continuing to see the Virgin, (during the Nights of the Screams) we saw a great multitude of people who were suffering intensely and screaming in terror. The Blessed Virgin explained to us that this great tribulation, which was not even the Chastisement, would come because a time would arrive when the Church would appear to be on the point of perishing. It would pass through a terrible trial. We asked the Virgin what this great trial was called and she told us it was «Communism».

The Warning
The Judge will come suddenly, and the deeds of each will be laid bare

The summary version, see here: History. XXI Century. Completion. Summary

The Garabandal visionaries told us about the Warning which will come when difficult events are going to take place, i.e. “when the situation will be at its worst”.

Conchita Gonzalez, one of the Garabandal visionaries, about the Warning:
“The most important thing about that day is that everyone in the whole world will see a sign, a grace, or a punishment within themselves — in other words a Warning.”

The Warning is a thing that comes directly from God and will be visible throughout the entire world in whatever place anyone might be.
1) They will find themselves all alone in the world no matter where they are at the time, alone with their conscience right before God. They will then see all their sins and what their sins have caused.
2) It will also be a physical phenomenon: “it's like two stars… that crash and make a lot of noise and a lot of light but they don't fall…”.

Messages of Our Lady of Akita: “… a punishment greater than the Deluge”.

From the third message of Our Lady of Akita (October 13, 1973): “Fire will plunge from the sky and a large part of humanity will perish…”.

My dear daughter, listen well to what I have to say to you. And relay my messages to your superior.

After a moment’s silence:

… if men do not repent and better themselves, the Heavenly Father will inflict a great punishment on all humanity. It will definitely be a punishment greater than the Deluge, such as has never been seen before.

Fire will plunge from the sky and a large part of humanity will perish… The good as well as the bad will perish, sparing neither priests nor the faithful. The survivors will find themselves plunged into such terrible hardships that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the sign left by My Son.

Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary pray for the bishops and priests. …

With courage, convey these messages to your superior. He will tell each one of you to continue prayers and acts of reparations for sins steadfastly, while ordering all of you to pray fervently. Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary. I alone am able still to help you from the calamities which approach. Those who place their total confidence in Me will be given necessary help.

99942 Apophis asteroid.

Astronomers have discovered that the asteroid 99942 Apophis approaching Earth.

It will come scarily close to Earth in 2029. On Friday, April 13, 2029, asteroid 99942 Apophis will pass Earth 23,000 miles (37,000 km) above the ground. For comparison, geosynchronous satellites orbit is at 22,300 miles (36,000 km).

Следующее сближение должно пройти 13 апреля 2036 года. В 2036 году Апофис может даже столкнуться с Землей. Все зависит от деталей сближения 2029 года, результат которого сложно предсказать.

NASA initially estimated the energy that Apophis would have released if it struck Earth as the equivalent of 1480 megatons of TNT. Later it was revised down to 880 megatons, then revised to 510 megatons. For comparison, the Tunguska event is estimated to be in the 3–10 megaton range.

Scientists explore different techniques to deflect killer asteroids in case some civilization-ending space rock bears down on us. They are even ready to detonate a nuclear device in space as an option of «last resort» which may, in extreme circumstances, be our first and only resort. Russian scientists already carry out a computer simulation of the nuclear explosion in space to deflect Apophis from its dangerous trajectory.

Technological Singularity

The summary version, see here: History. XXI Century. Completion. Summary

The mankind, turning away from the Creator, approaches the global crisis. Christ warns: “Abide in Me, and I in you. … without Me you can do nothing” (Jn 15:4-5). Not surprisingly, the global crisis associated with the technological singularity is inevitable!

The development of technology is at an exponential rate and even faster. This can lead, for example, to the situation when the tools of destruction will surpass the restrictions of their use, which, in turn, will lead to the death of mankind.

Aleksey Turchin: “Singularity — a hypothetical point in time around 2030, when a number of prognostic curves go to infinity.”

Сингулярность — гипотетическая точка во времени в районе 2030 года, когда ряд прогностических кривых уходят в бесконечность. Связывается с крайне быстрым ростом технического прогресса, особенно компьютеров, нано- и биотехнологий, исследований мозга и систем ИИ и предполагает качественное изменение человечества. Термин введён в употребление Вернором Винджем в 1993 году.

У Шкловского мы читаем: «По оценкам, выполненным американским футурологом А. Раппортом при экстраполяции естественных тенденций в развитии технологических цивилизаций, эти катастрофы (уничтожающие технологическую цивилизацию – А.Т.) должны реализоваться не позже 2030 года» [Шкловский И.С. 1987. Вселенная, жизнь, разум. М.: Наука.].

Абсолютным пределом в прогнозах кажется 2030 год, в районе течения которого предполагаются возможными развитые нанотехнологии, искусственный интеллект и полное овладением биоконструированием. (Это мнение разделяется многими футурологами). … Очевидно, что неопределённость в дате «2030 год» составит не менее пяти лет.

В силу сказанного, хотя мы и исследуем угрозы глобальной катастрофы на протяжении всего XXI века, наибольшей интерес для нашего исследования представляет промежуток примерно в два десятилетия между 2012 и 2030 годами. До этого периода вероятность глобальной катастрофы в целом известна и мала, а после него — мы утрачиваем, за рядом исключений, возможность что-либо точно предполагать.

Robots which make copies of themselves.

Bill Joy: “And once an intelligent robot exists, it is only a small step to a robot species — to an intelligent robot that can make evolved copies of itself.” And after such a small step will be completed we have to become slaves of more advanced creatures, because “people are slaves to whatever has mastered them” (2Pe 2:19).

How soon could such an intelligent robot be built? The coming advances in computing power seem to make it possible by 2030. And once an intelligent robot exists, it is only a small step to a robot species – to an intelligent robot that can make evolved copies of itself.

Singularity is inevitable.

Christians «removed» the Kingdom of Heaven to the end of the world, which in its tern was «removed» to a potential infinity (which is not more than an auxiliary notion).

Then, as the kingdom was «removed» to the end of the world, to the mysterious and unfathomable reaches of time, Christians gradually lost their awareness of it as something hoped for, as the desired and joyous fulfilment of all hopes, of all desires, of life itself, of all that the early Church implied in the words «Thy Kingdom come». It is characteristic that our scholary tomes of dogmatic theology (which cannot, of course, pass over the early doctrine in silence) speak of the kingdom in quite sparing, dull, and even boring terms. Here, eschatology — the doctrine of the «final destiny of the world and man» — is virtually reduced to the doctrine of «God as the Judge and Avenger». As to piety, i.e., the personal experience of individual believers, the interest is narrowed to the question of one's personal fate «after death». At the same time, «this world», about which St Paul wrote that its form is “passing away,” and which for the early Christians was transparent to the kingdom, reacquired its own value and existence independent of the kingdom of God.

Jesus Christ, the only Son of God the Father almighty, is warning: “without Me you can do nothing” (Jn 15:5). But people are still trying to be as gods (Gen 3:5). And finally the activities of those who turn away from the Creator in their infantile independence approach the global crisis. The Singularity is inevitable!

The harvest is the end of the world

The summary version, see here: History. XXI Century. Completion. Summary

In our type of creation, history is the ripening of seeds on earth — the Seeds of the Woman and the Seed of the Serpent. Ripening on the Earth, before the birth to Heaven, man, the Image of God, passes through three stages: “the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear(Mar 4:28). “But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come” (Mar 4:29).

26 And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;
27 And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.
28 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
29 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.
30 And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it? Мф 13, 31. Лк 13, 18.
31 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:
32 But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.
Mar 4:26-32

The harvest will certainly come immediately as soon as the fruit ripens. “Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD” (Isa 66:9). From all the above, it is obvious that we are almost ripe. Thank God! It's time to be born to Heaven.

29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
...
37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
38 The field is the world; the good seed, are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. Иоил 3, 13. Откр 14, 15.
Mat 13:29-39

The moment of birth has arrived, but we stay in the womb! For a long time we stand head down and ready to leave the womb (Hos 13:13), but we are afraid to be born. The Creator is looking at all this with a smile.

12 The iniquity of Ephraim is bound up; his sin is hid. Иов 14, 17. Иер 17, 1.
13 The sorrows of a travailing woman shall come upon him: he is an unwise son; for he should not stay long in the place of the breaking forth of children. Быт 35, 18.
Hos 13:12-13

Jesus Christ is THE ONLY SON

The summary version, see here: History. XXI Century. Completion. Summary

We need to stop fighting each other for superiority on this Earth. We are all creation. God the Father has the Only Son and He is our Lord.

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary
Under Pontius Pilate He was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
Amen.
