« Prepare yourselves, one and all, to receive my Son Jesus, who is even now about to return among you, on the clouds of heaven, in the splendor of his divine glory. »
“The voice of one crying in the desert: Prepare ye the way of the Lord,
make straight in the wilderness the paths of our God.” (Isaiah 40:3)
“I am the dawn which precedes the great day of the Lord. I am the voice which becomes strong in these times, in order to spread my prophetic announcement in every part of the earth: prepare yourselves, one and all, to receive my Son Jesus, who is even now about to return among you, on the clouds of heaven, in the splendor of his divine glory.” — Message #510, January 1, 1994. Taken from the Blue Book, ‘To the Priests, Our Lady's Beloved Sons,’ a compilation of 604 messages (interior locutions) which Fr. Gobbi received from the Blessed Virgin Mary between 1973 and 1997.
(Revelation 11:19) And the temple of God was opened in heaven: and the ark of his testament was seen in his temple. And there were lightnings and voices and an earthquake and great hail.
(Revelation 12:1) And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.
“I am the great sign which appears in heaven. Today you are calling to mind my last apparition, which took place in Fatima in the Cova da Iria and which was confirmed by the miracle of the sun. This miracle shows you, in an extraordinary way, that I am the Woman Clothed with the Sun. This miracle invites you to look to me as to the great sign which appears in heaven.” — Message #458, October 13, 1991 (Anniversary of the Last Apparition at Fatima, October 13, 1917).
“There is only one sign which God gives to the world and to the Church of this day: I myself.
I alone am announced as a great sign in the heavens: this Woman, Clothed with the Sun, with the moon as a carpet under her feet and twelve stars as a luminous crown about her head.” — #62, November 30, 1974.
“The twelve stars, which form the luminous crown of my maternal royalty, are made up of the tribes of Israel, of the Apostles and of the apostles of these last times of yours.” — #414, December 8, 1989.
(Revelation 12:15) “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.”
“What is this flood of water if not the ensemble of these new theological theories, by which an attempt is being made to bring your heavenly Mother down from that place where the Most Holy Trinity has put her? Thus it has been possible to obscure me in the souls, in the life and in the piety of many of my children, even to the point of denying some of those privileges with which I have been adorned by my Lord.” — #201, June 14, 1980.
(Mark 1:4) “John was in the desert, baptizing and preaching the baptism of penance, unto remission of sins.”
(Revelation 12:14) “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.”
“that desert is your heart made arid by so many wounds, in a world flooded with rebellion against God and his Law, marked with hatred and violence which spreads menacingly.” — #202, June 29, 1980.
“The desert, in which I have made my habitual dwelling place, is made up of the hearts and the souls of all those children who receive me, who listen to me, who entrust themselves completely to me, who consecrate themselves to my Immaculate Heart.” — #403, May 6, 1989.
“The great prodigies which I am accomplishing today, in the desert in which I find myself, are those of transforming completely the life of my little children, that they may become courageous witnesses of faith and luminous examples of holiness.
In this way, in silence and in hiddenness, each day I am preparing my great victory over the Dragon, in the triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the world.” — #403, May 6, 1989.
“I have announced to you the triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the world. In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph.
This will come about in the greatest triumph of Jesus, who will bring into the world his glorious reign of love, of justice and of peace, and will make all things new.” — #604, December 31, 1997.
“In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph.” — Our Lady of Fatima 1917
“What I have started in Fatima I will finish in Medjugorje. My heart will triumph.” — Our Lady of Medjugorje
“... Satan is strong and wants to sweep away my plans of peace and joy and make you think that my Son is not strong in His decisions. Therefore, I call all of you, dear children, to pray and fast still more firmly. I invite you to self-renunciation for nine days so that, with your help, everything that I desire to realize through the secrets I began in Fatima, may be fulfilled. I call you, dear children, to now grasp the importance of my coming and the seriousness of the situation. ...” — Our Lady of Medjugorje (Aug 25, 1991)
“... There are many people who do not desire to understand my messages and to accept with seriousness what I am saying. But you I therefore call and ask that by your lives and by your daily living you witness my presence. If you pray, God will help you to discover the true reason for my coming. Therefore, little children, pray and read the Sacred Scriptures so that through my coming you discover the message in Sacred Scripture for you. ...” — Our Lady of Medjugorje (Jun 25, 1991)
“... My children, my apostles, help me to open the paths to my Son. Once again I call you to pray for your shepherds. Alongside them, I will triumph. Thank you.” — Our Lady of Medjugorje (Oct 02, 2010)
“The triumph of my Immaculate Heart cannot take place except in the triumph of my Son Jesus, who will reign once again in the hearts, the souls and the lives of each person and nation: in all humanity.” — #176, June 14, 1979.
“From heaven, you will see my Son Jesus returning on the clouds in the splendor of his divine glory. Then finally the triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the world will be accomplished.” — #576, August 15, 1996.
St. Irenaeus (died c. 202): “... "For, behold," says Isaiah, "the day of the Lord comes past remedy, full of fury and wrath, to lay waste the city of the earth, and to root sinners out of it." Is 13:9 And again he says, "Let him be taken away, that he behold not the glory of God." Is 26:10 And when these things are done, he says, "God will remove men far away, and those that are left shall multiply in the earth." Is 6:12 "And they shall build houses, and shall inhabit them themselves: and plant vineyards, and eat of them themselves." Is 65:21 ...” (Against Heresies, Book V, Ch 35.)
(Isaiah 6:12) “And the Lord shall remove men far away, and she shall be multiplied that was left in the midst of the earth.”
(Zechariah 13:8-9) “And there shall be in all the earth, saith the Lord, two parts in it shall be scattered, and shall perish: but the third part shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined: and I will try them as gold is tried. They shall call on my name, and I will hear them. I will say: Thou art my people: and they shall say: The Lord is my God.”
St. Irenaeus: “... But when this Antichrist shall have devastated all things in this world, ... then the Lord will come from heaven in the clouds, in the glory of the Father, sending this man and those who follow him into the lake of fire; but bringing in for the righteous the times of the kingdom, that is, the rest, the hallowed seventh day; and restoring to Abraham the promised inheritance, ...” (Against Heresies, Book V, Ch 30.)
(Matthew 5:5) “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”
Lactantius (240-320 AD): “And as God laboured during those six days in creating such great works, so His religion and truth must labour during these six thousand years, while wickedness prevails and bears rule. And again, since God, having finished His works, rested the seventh day and blessed it, at the end of the six thousandth year all wickedness must be abolished from the earth, and righteousness reign for a thousand years; and there must be tranquillity and rest from the labours which the world now has long endured.” (Lactantius - Divine Institutes, Book VII, Ch 14.)
(“a thousand years”, symbolic of a long period of time.)
Epistle of Barnabas 15: “And He rested on the seventh day. this He meaneth; when His Son shall come, and shall abolish the time of the Lawless One, and shall judge the ungodly, and shall change the sun and the moon and the stars, then shall he truly rest on the seventh day.”
(John 5:15-17) “The man went his way, and told the Jews, that it was Jesus who had made him whole. Therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, because he did these things on the sabbath. But Jesus answered them: My Father worketh until now; and I work.”
(Psalms 46:1-10) “Unto the end, for the sons of Core, for the hidden. Our God is our refuge and strength: a helper in troubles, which have found us exceedingly. Therefore we will not fear, when the earth shall be troubled; and the mountains shall be removed into the heart of the sea. Their waters roared and were troubled: the mountains were troubled with his strength. The stream of the river maketh the city of God joyful: the most High hath sanctified his own tabernacle. God is in the midst thereof, it shall not be moved: God will help it in the morning early. Nations were troubled, and kingdoms were bowed down: he uttered his voice, the earth trembled. The Lord of armies is with us: the God of Jacob is our protector. Come and behold ye the works of the Lord: what wonders he hath done upon earth, Making wars to cease even to the end of the earth. He shall destroy the bow, and break the weapons: and the shield he shall burn in the fire. Be still and see that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, and I will be exalted in the earth.”
(See Isaiah 2:4 ; Isaiah 11:6-9 ; Hosea 2:16-23 ; Micah 4:3 ; Micah 5:9-15 ; Malachi 4:1-3)
(Matthew 6:10) “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
St. Louis de Montfort: “Is it not true that your will must be done on earth as it is in heaven? Is it not true that your kingdom must come? Did you not give to some souls, dear to you, a vision of the future renewal of the Church? Are not the Jews to be converted to the truth and is this not what the Church is waiting for? All the blessed in heaven cry out for justice to be done: vindica [Rev 6:10], and the faithful on earth join in with them and cry out: amen, veni, Domine, amen, come, Lord [Rev 22:20]. All creatures, even the most insensitive, lie groaning under the burden of Babylon's countless sins and plead with you to come and renew all things: omnis creatura ingemiscit... the whole creation is groaning... [Rom 8:22]” (Prayer for Missionaries 5)
(Romans 8:22) “For we know that every creature groaneth and travaileth in pain, even till now.”
“Each day, in silence and in hiddenness, the heavenly Mother is waging her battle against the Adversary and is working, by means of most extraordinary signs and manifestations, to change the heart of the world.” — #336, October 7, 1986.
“I have come to call the world to conversion for the last time.” — Our Lady of Medjugorje 1982
“See how all the world has now been reduced to an immense desert, where there spring up in great numbers the wicked weeds of sin and egoism, of pride and hatred, of pleasure and impurity. Impurity becomes extolled and spread by all the means of propaganda, and thus the innocence of little children begins to be ensnared, leading then to the destruction of purity among youth and of chastity within family life. Over this world, the demon of lust rules as the master and succeeds in seducing, with the cup of pleasure, all the nations of the earth.” — #589, February 11, 1997.
“Impurity is proposed as a value and a good, and it is propagated throughout all the mass media. Sins of impurity are presented as a way of exercising one’s personal freedom, and so impure sins against nature, which cry for vengeance in the sight of God, become justified and even exalted. The world has now been reduced to an immense desert, completely covered with filth.” — #577, September 2, 1996.
“The night of the denial of God has descended upon the world; the coldness of rebellion against his Law of love has reduced humanity to an immense desert; error has closed minds to the understanding of the greatest mystery of love; hearts have become hardened by egoism and hatred which is spreading everywhere. Doors are still obstinately shut to the Lord as He comes.” — #342, December 24, 1986.
“The Spirit of Rebellion against God has seduced humanity; atheism has entered into so many souls and has completely extinguished the light of faith and love. This is the Red Dragon spoken of in the Bible. Read it, my sons, because the present times are those of its realization! How many of my children are already victims of this error of Satan! Even among my priests how many there are who no longer believe; and yet, they still remain in my Church, true wolves in sheep’s clothing, and they are bringing to ruin a countless number of souls!” — #28, December 1, 1973.
“The huge Red Dragon has succeeded during these years in conquering humanity with the error of theoretical and practical atheism, which has now seduced all the nations of the earth. It has thus succeeded in building up for itself a new civilization without God, materialistic, egoistic, hedonistic, arid and cold, which carries within itself the seeds of corruption and of death.” — #404, May 14, 1989.
“The Lord has reclothed me with his light and the Holy Spirit with his divine power, and thus I appear as a great sign in heaven, a Woman Clothed with the Sun, because I have the task of taking humanity away from the dominion of the huge Red Dragon and of bringing it all back to the perfect glorification of the Most Holy Trinity.” — #404, May 14, 1989.
“Join me in battle, little children, against the Dragon, who seeks to lead all humanity against God.
Join me in battle, little children, against the Black Beast, Masonry, which seeks to lead souls to perdition.” — #407
“The Dragon manifests himself in the force of his power; the Black Beast, on the other hand, acts in the shadow, keeps out of sight and hides himself in such a way as to enter in everywhere. He has the claws of a bear and the mouth of a lion, because he works everywhere with cunning and with the means of social communication, ...” — #405, June 3, 1989.
“Immorality is spreading like a flood of filth and is being propagated by the means of social communication, especially the cinema, the press and television. By means of this last-mentioned, a subtle and diabolical tactic of seduction and corruption has found its way into every family. The most defenseless victims are children and youth, whom I look upon with the tender preoccupation of a mother.” — #256, December 31, 1982.
“In these times, how many of my poor children there are who have distanced themselves from God, because they become victims of the error of atheism, so widespread today, sustained and propagated through all the means of social communication! Innumerable is the company of those who walk in the darkness of the rejection of God, of the lack of faith, of immorality, of injustice, and of impiety. Evil is covering the whole earth like a thick coat of ice, and the cup of divine justice is already full and flowing over.” — #298, November 14, 1984.
“In the name of a false way of understanding liberty, even the gravest moral disorders are today being permitted and justified. Impurity is exalted and spread about through the social means of communication, and thus a veil of darkness has descended to blind the souls of many of my children.” — #375, February 25, 1988.
“Above all, television has become the perverse instrument of a daily bombardment with obscene images, directed to corrupt the purity of the mind and the heart of all. The places of entertainment — in particular the cinema and the discotheques — have become places of public profanation of one’s human and Christian dignity.” — #412, October 13, 1989.
“Remove yourselves from the easy seduction of the press and television, this terrible means made use of by my Adversary to draw you away from me and my Son Jesus.” — #494, May 1, 1993.
“He has succeeded in seducing you through pride. He has managed to pre-arrange everything in a most clever fashion. He has bent to his design every sector of human science and technique, arranging everything for rebellion against God. The greater part of humanity is now in his hands. He has managed by guile to draw to himself scientists, artists, philosophers, scholars, the powerful. Enticed by him, they have now put themselves at his service to act without God and against God.” — #127, May 18, 1977.
“How numerous and subtle are the snares which the wicked spirits set each day for you: these demons who have now been poured out over the world and who are working everywhere to lead souls to eternal damnation! Their activity has now become powerful, because it has become associated with the powers who have control of the mass media, such as the press and television. With subtle refinement, evil has been spread under the guise of good; sin, as an exercise of one’s own freedom; and transgression of the Law of God, as a new conquest on the part of this poor and perverted humanity.” — #502
“Take no part in worldly shows, and shut your eyes to the loose seductions of the world.” — #286, March 19, 1984.
“Flee also from the easy occasions of sin. For this, I ask you to close your eyes and ears to television and to the cinema, in order to preserve your soul in the light of purity and of grace. If you carry out this fast which I am asking of you, you will build about yourselves a strong barrier against the flood of evil and of sin, and you will offer to the Lord a holocaust of immolation and of reparation, to obtain the return to Him of many of my poor sinful children.” — #306, March 16, 1985.
“Do not waste time before the television set, which is the most powerful instrument in the hands of my Adversary in spreading everywhere the darkness of sin and of impurity. Television is the idol spoken of in the book of Revelation, built to be adored by all the nations of the earth, and to which the Evil One gives shape and movement so that it might become, in his hands, a terrible means of seduction and perversion.” — #374, Feb 17, 1988.
(1 John 4:3) “And every spirit that dissolveth Jesus, is not of God: and this is Antichrist, of whom you have heard that he cometh, and he is now already in the world.”
“... Lucifer, the ancient serpent, the devil or Satan, the Red Dragon, becomes, in these last times, the Antichrist. ...” — #407
“... 333 is the number which indicates the mystery of God. He who wants to put himself above God bears the sign, 666, and consequently this number indicates the name of Lucifer, ...” — #407, June 17, 1989.
“... 666 indicated once, ... expresses the year 666, ... In this period of history, the Antichrist is manifested through the phenomenon of Islam, which directly denies the mystery of the Divine Trinity and the divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ.” — #407, June 17, 1989.
“... 666 indicated twice, ... expresses the year 1332, ... In this period of history, the Antichrist is manifested through a radical attack on the faith in the word of God. ...
... Indeed, with the Protestant Reformation, Tradition is rejected as a source of divine revelation, and only Sacred Scripture is accepted. But even this must be interpreted by means of the reason, and the authentic Magisterium of the hierarchical Church, to which Christ has entrusted the guardianship of the deposit of the faith, is obstinately rejected. Each one is free to read and to understand Sacred Scripture according to one’s personal interpretation. In this way, faith in the word of God is destroyed. ...” — #407, June 17, 1989.
“... 666 indicated thrice, ... expresses the year 1998, ... In this period of history, Freemasonry, ... will succeed in its great design: that of setting up an idol to put in the place of Christ and of his Church. A false christ and a false church. Consequently, the statue built in honor of the first beast, to be adored by all the inhabitants of the earth and which will seal with its mark all those who want to buy or sell, is that of the Antichrist. ... Then the door will be open for the appearance of the man or of the very person of the Antichrist!” — #407, June 17, 1989.

“The great chastisement will come ... when thoughts are flying around the earth in the twinkling of an eye, ...” — Mother Shipton (16th Century)
“... And all this will result from the fact that the Antichrist wants to be Lord over everything and become the ruler of the whole universe, and he will produce miracles and fantastic signs. He will also give depraved wisdom to an unhappy man so that he will discover a way by which one man can carry on a conversation with another from one end of the earth to the other. ... And when they have achieved all this, these unhappy people will spend their lives in comfort without knowing, poor souls, that it is deceit of the Antichrist.” — St. Nilus (died c. 430)
“God will punish the world when men have devised marvelous inventions that will lead them to forgetting God.” — Blessed Rembordt (18th Century)
“He has made you slaves of pleasure and of impurity, to replace the true God with new idols, followed and adored today by many: sex, amusement, money, comfort. Thus sin has stretched out its tenebrous veil of coldness and of death over the world.” — #366
(Revelation 13:15-17) “And it was given him to give life to the image of the beast: and that the image of the beast should speak: and should cause that whosoever will not adore the image of the beast should be slain. And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand or on their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
“according to the first commandment of the holy Law of the Lord, only God is to be adored and to Him alone must every form of worship be rendered. And so they substitute for God a strong, powerful and dominating idol. ...” — #407
“An idol so strong and dominating as to cause all, small and great, rich and poor, freemen and slaves, to receive a mark on the right hand and on the forehead, ...” — #407
“The mark is imprinted on the forehead and on the hand.
The forehead indicates the intellect, because the mind is the seat of the human reason.
The hand expresses human activity, because it is with his hands that man acts and works.” — #410
“He who allows himself to be signed with the mark on his forehead is led to accept the doctrine of the denial of God, of the rejection of his Law, and of atheism which, in these times, is more and more diffused and advertised. And thus he is driven to follow the ideologies in mode today and to make of himself a propagator of all the errors.” — #410
“He who allows himself to be signed with the mark on his hand is obliged to act in an autonomous manner and independently of God, ordering his own activities to the quest of a purely material and terrestrial good. Thus he withdraws his action from the design of the Father, who wants to illumine it and sustain it by his divine providence, from the love of the Son who makes human toil a precious means for one’s own redemption and sanctification, from the power of the Spirit who acts everywhere to renew interiorly every creature.
He who is signed with the mark on his hand works for himself alone, to accumulate material goods, to make money his god, and he becomes a victim of materialism.
He who is signed with the mark on his hand works solely for the gratification of his own senses, for the quest of well-being and pleasure, for the granting of full satisfaction to all his passions, especially that of impurity, and he becomes a victim of hedonism.
He who is signed with the mark on his hand makes of his own self the center of all his actions, looks upon others as objects to be used and to be exploited for his own advantage, and he becomes a victim of unbridled egoism and of lovelessness.” — #410
“If my Adversary is signing, with his mark, all his followers, the time has come when I also, your heavenly Leader, am signing, with my motherly seal, all those who have consecrated themselves to my Immaculate Heart and have formed part of my army. I am imprinting my seal on your foreheads with the most holy sign of the Cross of my Son Jesus. Thus I am opening the human intellect to receive his divine word, to love it, and to live it. I am leading you to entrust yourselves completely to Jesus who has revealed it to you. And I am making of you today courageous witnesses of faith.” — #410
(Malachi 1:11) “For from the rising of the sun even to the going down, my name is great among the Gentiles, and in every place there is sacrifice, and there is offered to my name a clean oblation: for my name is great among the Gentiles, saith the Lord of hosts.”
“The Holy Mass is the daily Sacrifice, the pure oblation which is offered to the Lord everywhere, from the rising of the sun to its going down.
The Sacrifice of the Mass renews that which was accomplished by Jesus on Calvary. By accepting the Protestant doctrine, people will hold that the Mass is not a sacrifice but only a sacred meal, that is to say, a remembrance of that which Jesus did at his Last Supper. And thus, the celebration of Holy Mass will be suppressed. In this abolition of the daily Sacrifice consists the horrible sacrilege accomplished by the Antichrist, which will last about three and a half years, namely, one thousand two hundred and ninety days.” — #485
(Daniel 11:31) “And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall defile the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the continual sacrifice: and they shall place there the abomination unto desolation.”

“... the apostasy is spreading, the wars are multiplying, natural catastrophes are occurring in many places, persecutions are intensifying, the announcement of the Gospel is being brought to all nations, extraordinary phenomena are occurring in the sky, and the moment of the full manifestation of the Antichrist is drawing ever nearer.” — #485

(Revelation 21:5) “And he that sat on the throne, said: Behold, I make all things new. And he said to me: Write. For these words are most faithful and true.”
(Isaiah 65:17-25 RSV Catholic Bible) “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things shall not be remembered or come into mind. But be glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create; for behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and be glad in my people; no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping and the cry of distress. No more shall there be in it an infant that lives but a few days, or an old man who does not fill out his days, for the child shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner a hundred years old shall be accursed. They shall build houses and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit. They shall not build and another inhabit; they shall not plant and another eat; for like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labor in vain, or bear children for calamity; for they shall be the offspring of the blessed of the LORD, and their children with them. Before they call I will answer, while they are yet speaking I will hear. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, the lion shall eat straw like the ox; and dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain, says the LORD.”
- The guttural voice, the voice of Satan in his pride, boasted to Our Lord: “I can destroy your Church.”
- The gentle voice of Our Lord: “You can? Then go ahead and do so.”
- Satan: “To do so, I need more time and more power.”
- Our Lord: “How much time? How much power?”
- Satan: “75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those who will give themselves over to my service.”
- Our Lord: “You have the time, you will have the power. Do with them what you will.”
75 to 100 years (1917—20??) :
“These are seventy years during which I have descended from heaven into your midst as the Woman Clothed with the Sun. These are seventy years during which my Adversary, Satan, has come up from the abyss into your midst, to manifest himself as the Red Dragon in all his terrible power. In fact, he has succeeded in extending his reign in many nations and in spreading his action of denial and of rebellion against God to every part of the earth. ...
You have lived seventy years as slaves of my Adversary, who has succeeded in transforming the world into the city of Babylon, perverse and sinful, which, with the cup of pleasure and of luxury, has seduced all the nations of the earth.” — #366, October 13, 1987 (Anniversary of the Last Apparition at Fatima, October 13, 1917).
Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774-1824): “but a certain number of demons are to be let loose much earlier than Lucifer, in order to tempt men, and to serve as instruments of the divine vengeance. I should think that some must be loosened even in the present day, and others will be set free in a short time. It would be utterly impossible for me to describe all the things which were shown to me; their number was so great that I could not reduce them sufficiently to order to define and render them intelligible.” (The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Ch LIX.)
Medjugorje: ... Mirjana related an apparition she had in 1982, which sheds some light on certain aspects of Church history. She spoke of an apparition in which Satan appeared to her, and asked Mirjana to renounce Our Lady and to follow him. By doing so she could be happy in love and in life. He added that following Our Lady would only lead to suffering. Mirjana rejected him, and immediately Our Lady appeared and Satan disappeared. Then Our Lady gave Mirjana the following message in substance: “Excuse me for this, but you must realize that Satan exists. One day he appeared before the throne of God and asked permission to submit the Church to a period of trial. God gave him permission to try the Church for one century. This century is under the power of the devil; but when the secrets confided to you come to pass, his power will be destroyed. ...”
(Revelation 14:8) “And another angel followed, saying: That great Babylon is fallen, is fallen; which made all nations to drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.”
“In the desert, Jesus was tempted.
My Adversary has been given a period of time in which to tempt you. Thus he will set snares for you in all sorts of ways with pride, with lust, with doubts, with discouragement, with curiosity. You will be sifted like wheat, and many will be allured by his dangerous deceits. Follow Jesus in ever rejecting his seductions; above all be on the watch because today there are many false christs and false prophets, who are seducing many souls and bringing them to perdition.” — #195
“Here must appear the constancy of all my little children, whom I am calling to consecrate themselves to my Immaculate Heart, to live out with me the conclusive moments of the battle and of the fall of Babylon, when the vintage of the earth will be harvested, and the grapes will be cast into the wine press, which represents the great chastisement of God.” — #409
“To the third angel there befalls the task of announcing the great chastisement:” — #478
(Revelation 14:9-11) “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice: If any man shall adore the beast and his image and receive his character in his forehead or in his hand, He also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mingled with pure wine in the cup of his wrath: and shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the sight of the holy angels and in the sight of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torments, shall ascend up for ever and ever: neither have they rest day nor night, who have adored the beast and his image and whoever receiveth the character of his name.”
“Sufferings never before experienced are awaiting you, because the moment of a universal renewal is drawing close. Satan will be defeated; the power of evil will be destroyed; Jesus will restore his glorious reign among you, and in this way the new heavens and the new earth will be formed.” — #536
“To attain these new heavens and this new earth, it is necessary to pass through the painful and bloody trial of the purification, of the great tribulation and of the chastisement.
My beloved ones and children consecrated to my Immaculate Heart, listen to the words of your heavenly Mother, who is gently preparing you and leading you to live through these events, because the times which were foretold to you by the prophet Zechariah have now come.” — #482
“Humanity will reach the summit of corruption and impiety, of rebellion against God and of open opposition to his Law of love. It will know the hour of its greatest chastisement, which has already been foretold to you by the prophet Zechariah. (cf. Zec 13:7-9)” — #539
(Zechariah 13:8) “And there shall be in all the earth, saith the Lord, two parts in it shall be scattered, and shall perish: but the third part shall be left therein.”
“Fire will come down from heaven, and a great part of humanity will be destroyed. Those who will survive will envy the dead, because everywhere there will be desolation, death and ruin.” — #501
(Isaiah 13:9-13 RSV Catholic Bible) “Behold, the day of the LORD comes, cruel, with wrath and fierce anger, to make the earth a desolation and to destroy its sinners from it. For the stars of the heavens and their constellations will not give their light; the sun will be dark at its rising and the moon will not shed its light. I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will put an end to the pride of the arrogant, and lay low the haughtiness of the ruthless. I will make men more rare than fine gold, and mankind than the gold of Ophir. Therefore I will make the heavens tremble, and the earth will be shaken out of its place, at the wrath of the LORD of hosts in the day of his fierce anger.”
(Joel 2:1-2) “Blow ye the trumpet in Sion, sound an alarm in my holy mountain, let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: because the day of the Lord cometh, because it is nigh at hand. A day of darkness, and of gloominess, a day of clouds and whirlwinds: a numerous and strong people as the morning spread upon the mountains: the like to it hath not been from the beginning, nor shall be after it, even to the years of generation and generation.”
(Malachi 4:1-3) “For behold the day shall come kindled as a furnace: and all the proud, and all that do wickedly shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall set them on fire, saith the Lord of hosts, it shall not leave them root, nor branch. But unto you that fear my name, the Sun of justice shall arise, and health in his wings: and you shall go forth, and shall leap like calves of the herd. And you shall tread down the wicked when they shall be ashes under the sole of your feet in the day that I do this, saith the Lord of hosts.”
(Luke 17:26-35 RSV Catholic Bible) “As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of man. They ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was in the days of Lot -- they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built, but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom fire and sulphur rained from heaven and destroyed them all -- so will it be on the day when the Son of man is revealed. On that day, let him who is on the housetop, with his goods in the house, not come down to take them away; and likewise let him who is in the field not turn back. Remember Lot's wife. Whoever seeks to gain his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will preserve it. I tell you, in that night there will be two in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. There will be two women grinding together; one will be taken and the other left.”
“God will punish the world when men have devised marvelous inventions that will lead them to forgetting God. They will have horseless carriages, and they will fly like birds.” — Blessed Rembordt (18th Century)
“The great chastisement will come when carriages go without horses and many accidents fill the world with woe. It will come when thoughts are flying around the earth in the twinkling of an eye, when long tunnels are made for horseless machines, when men can fly in the air and ride under the sea, when ships are wholly made of metal, when fire and water great marvels do, when even the poor can read books, and when many taxes are levied for war.” — Mother Shipton (16th Century)
“Before the Second Coming of Christ, Mary must, more than ever, shine in mercy, might and grace in order to bring unbelievers into the Catholic Faith.” — Venerable Mary of Agreda (17th Century)
St. Louis de Montfort: “... in the second coming of Jesus Christ, Mary has to be made known and revealed by the Holy Ghost, in order that by her Jesus Christ may be known, loved, and served. The reasons which moved the Holy Ghost to hide His Spouse during her life, and to reveal her but a very little since the preaching of the Gospel, subsist no longer.” (A Treatise on the True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin, 49.)
“Before the triumph of the Church comes, God will first take vengeance on the wicked, especially against the Godless. It will be a new judgment; the like has never been before, and it will be universal. It will be so terrible that those who outlive it will imagine that they are the only ones spared. All people will then be good and contrite. This judgment will come suddenly and be of short duration. Then comes the triumph of the holy Church and the reign of brotherly love.” — Fr. Bernard Maria Clausi (died 1849)
“... I am weeping because humanity is not accepting my motherly invitation to conversion and to its return to the Lord. It is continuing to run with obstinacy along the road of rebellion against God and against his Law of love. The Lord is openly denied, outraged and blasphemed. Your heavenly Mother is publicly despised and held up for ridicule. My extraordinary requests are not being accepted; the signs of my immense sorrow which I am giving are not believed in. Your neighbor is not loved: every day attacks are made upon his life and his goods. Man is becoming ever more corrupt, godless, wicked and cruel. A chastisement worse than the flood is about to come upon this poor and perverted humanity. Fire will descend from heaven, and this will be the sign that the justice of God has as of now fixed the hour of his great manifestation. I am weeping because, in great numbers, the souls of my children are being lost and going to hell. I am weeping because too few are those who accede to my request to pray, to make reparation, to suffer and to offer. I am weeping because I have spoken to you and have not been listened to; I have given you miraculous signs, and I have not been believed; I have manifested myself to you in a strong and continuous way, but you have not opened the doors of your hearts to me.” — #362
“I want to help this poor humanity return to its Lord, along the road of conversion and of repentance, and so I am giving it evident signs of my motherly affliction and my sorrowful anxiety. This is why I am causing tears and blood to flow down from some of my images. How can a child not be moved before its mother who is weeping? How can you, my beloved children, not be moved before your heavenly Mother who is weeping tears of blood? And yet, these very grave signs, which I am giving you today, are neither accepted nor given credence, but on the contrary are openly opposed and rejected.” — #542
“Beloved sons, I have need of voices that will spread my word, of hands that will help, of feet that will walk along all the roads of the world. I have need that this urgent message of mine immediately reach every part of the earth. You must be my messengers; announce everywhere this concerned call of mine for return to the Lord.
These are the times of the great chastisement. The cup of divine justice is full, is more than full, is flowing over.” — #357
“This is the moment for all to take refuge in me, because I am the Ark of the New Covenant.
At the time of Noah, immediately before the flood, those whom the Lord had destined to survive his terrible chastisement entered into the ark. In these your times, I am inviting all my beloved children to enter into the Ark of the New Covenant which I have built in my Immaculate Heart for you, that they may be assisted by me to carry the bloody burden of the great trial, which precedes the coming of the day of the Lord.
Do not look anywhere else. There is happening today what happened in the days of the flood, and no one is giving a thought to what is awaiting them. Everyone is much occupied in thinking only of themselves, of their own earthly interests, of pleasures and of satisfying in every sort of way, their own disordinate passions.” — #328
“Enter, each and all, into this refuge. Thus, you will be protected and defended by me, when the great and terrible day of the Lord comes upon you.” — #582
Consecration to Mary of St. Louis de Montfort:
I, [Name]. faithless sinner, renew and ratify today in your hands 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 you this day for my mother and queen. I deliver and consecrate to you, as your 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 you the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to your good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and in eternity. Amen.
“I am the dawn which precedes the great day of the Lord. I am the longed-for luminous cloud which will cause the heavenly dew of grace and of holiness to descend upon the desert of the world, wasted by evil and by sin.” — #341
“I am the dawn which announces the stupendous event of your salvation and which prepares you all for the coming of the great day of the Lord.” — #431
(Song of Solomon 6:9-10) “One is my dove, my perfect one is but one, she is the only one of her mother, the chosen of her that bore her. The daughters saw her, and declared her most blessed: the queens and concubines, and they praised her. Who is she that cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in array?”
“I am terrible as an army drawn up in battle array, because the task which has been entrusted to me by the Lord is that of conquering Satan; of crushing the head of the ancient serpent; of enchaining the huge Red Dragon and of casting him into his abyss of fire; of struggling with and of defeating the one who opposes himself to Christ, namely the Antichrist, in order to prepare the second coming of Jesus, who will restore his glorious reign among you.” — #431
“An ‘angel’ is a spirit who is sent by God to carry out a particular mission.
I am the Queen of the Angels, because it is of the very nature of my role to be sent by the Lord to accomplish the very great and important mission of conquering Satan.
In fact, from the very beginning, I was announced as she who is the enemy of the serpent, she who does battle with him, she who in the end will crush his head: ‘I will put enmity between you and the woman, between your offspring and hers. She will crush your head, as you attempt to bite at her heel.’ (Gen 3:15)” — #479
“... Is it thus that she will set her heel on the devil's head ...” — Tertullian (160-225 AD) / On the Apparel of Women, Book I, Ch 6.
“... Eve defeats the serpent by crushing its head ...” — Moses Maimonides, Jewish philosopher (1135-1204 AD) / The Guide for the Perplexed, Ch 30.
St. Louis de Montfort: “God has never made or formed but one enmity ; but it is an irreconcilable one, which shall endure and develop even to the end. It is between Mary, His worthy Mother, and the devil, — between the children and the servants of the Blessed Virgin and the children and instruments of Lucifer. The most terrible of all the enemies which God has set up against the devil is His holy Mother, Mary.” (A Treatise on the True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin, 52.)
“Dear children! Also in this difficult time God's love sends me to you. My children, do not be afraid, I am with you. With complete trust give me your hearts, that I may help you to recognize the signs of the time in which you live. I will help you to come to know the love of my Son. I will triumph through you. Thank you.” — Our Lady of Medjugorje (Jun 2, 2007)
“The Lord will conquer by means of me, his little servant. I will conquer by means of you, my little children.” — #580
“Satan unleashes himself against you, because you form my heel, that is, the weakest and most fragile part of me, and because you are my offspring. Thus today he lies in ambush for you in a powerful manner, and he unleashes himself against you with every sort of temptation and persecution. Remain serene. Have confidence in me. These are the times of the battle, and you must fight for my victory. Because of this, I invite you all to bear within yourselves the witness of Jesus.” — #408
(Revelation 12:17) “And the dragon was angry against the woman: and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
“You must be little because you are my children, and therefore you should live the same life as I.
You must be little to become docile instruments in my plan and to draw upon yourselves the good pleasure of my Son Jesus.
You must be little to oppose Satan who is succeeding in leading people astray by pride and arrogance.
You must be little because in this way you will always say yes to the Will of the Father.
And lastly, you must be little to form this humble heel which Satan will try to bite, but with which I will crush his head.” — #109
St. Louis de Montfort: “But the power of Mary over all the devils will especially break out in the latter times, when Satan will lay his snares against her heel ; that is to say, her humble slaves and her poor children, whom she will raise up to make war against him. They shall be little and poor in the world's esteem, and abased before all, like the heel, trodden underfoot and persecuted as the heel is by the other members of the body. But in return for this, they shall be rich in the grace of God, which Mary shall distribute to them abundantly. They shall be great and exalted before God in sanctity, superior to all other creatures by their animated zeal, and leaning so strongly on the divine succour, that, with the humility of their heel, in union with Mary, they shall crush the head of the devil, and cause Jesus Christ to triumph.” (A Treatise on the True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin, 54.)
(Judith 13:23-24) “And Ozias the prince of the people of Israel, said to her: Blessed art thou, O daughter, by the Lord the most high God, above all women upon the earth. Blessed be the Lord who made heaven and earth, who hath directed thee to the cutting off the head of the prince of our enemies.”
(Judith is a prefigurement of Mary.)
“The task which has been entrusted to me by the Most Holy Trinity is that of directing the battle and leading to victory the cohort of the children of God who are fighting against the powerful army of the slaves of Satan and of the spirits of evil.” — #554
“The Most Holy Trinity has entrusted to me the task of leading its army in the terrible struggle against Satan who, as ever, is the most astute and ruthless enemy of God.
God has entrusted the carrying out of his victorious plan to me, the littlest slave of the Lord, because the spirit of pride and rebellion may still be conquered by the humility and obedience of your heavenly Mother.” — #200
St. Louis de Montfort: “... It is not that the anger, the hatred, and the power of God are not infinitely greater than those of the Blessed Virgin, for the perfections of Mary are limited, but it is, first, because Satan, being proud, suffers infinitely more from being beaten and punished by a little and humble handmaid of God, and her humility humbles him more than the Divine power; and, secondly, because God has given Mary such a great power against the devils, that, as they have often been obliged to confess, in spite of themselves, by the mouths of the possessed, they fear one of her sighs for a soul more than the prayers of all the Saints, and one of her menaces against them more than all other torments.” (A Treatise on the True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin, 52.)
“My plan is that of leading in battle the cohort of the sons of God to fight and overcome the snares of those who have put themselves at the service of Satan and who are battling to spread in the world the reign of evil, error, sin, hatred and impurity.” — #558
“The weapons with which you are to fight my battle are those of prayer and penance.” — #260
“In the Apocalypse, I have been announced as the Woman Clothed with the Sun who will conduct the battle against the Red Dragon and all his followers. If you want to second my plan, you must do battle, my little ones, children of a Mother who is Leader. Fight against sin and against compromise with the weapon of prayer and of suffering. In hiddenness and confidence, in the humble fulfillment of your daily duties, in the perfect imitation of Jesus and in poverty and contempt for the world and for your own selves, join me in waging this battle each day.” — #254
“It is above all a battle which is waged at the level of spirits, and so you must fight with the spiritual weapon of prayer.” — #294
“The rosary is my prayer; it is the prayer which I came down from heaven to ask of you, because it is the weapon which you must make use of, in these times of the great battle, and it is the sign of my assured victory.” — #479
(Revelation 20:1-3) “And I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, the old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. And he cast him into the bottomless pit and shut him up and set a seal upon him, that he should no more seduce the nations till the thousand years be finished. And after that, he must be loosed a little time.”
“... For this reason, there is to come down from heaven an angel to whom there is given the key of the abyss and a chain with which this angel will bind the great Dragon, the ancient serpent, Satan, with all his followers.
The chain, with which the great Dragon is to be bound, is made up of prayer made with me and by means of me. This prayer is that of the holy rosary.
— The chain of the holy rosary has first of all the function of limiting the action of my Adversary. Every rosary which you recite with me has the effect of restricting the action of the Evil One, of drawing souls away from his pernicious influence, and of giving greater impetus to the expansion of goodness in the life of many of my children.
— The chain of the holy rosary has also the effect of imprisoning Satan, that is, of making his action impotent, and of diminishing and weakening more and more the force of his diabolical power. And so, each rosary which is recited well deals a mighty blow to the power of evil, and it represents one part of his reign which is destroyed.” — #479
(Revelation 20:4-6) “And I saw seats. And they sat upon them: and judgment was given unto them. And the souls of them that were beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God and who had not adored the beast nor his image nor received his character on their foreheads or in their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. The rest of the dead lived not, till the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection. In these the second death hath no power. But they shall be priests of God and of Christ: and shall reign with him a thousand years.”
(“a thousand years”, symbolic of a long period of time.)
St. Irenaeus: “... and it is necessary to tell them respecting those things, that it behooves the righteous first to receive the promise of the inheritance which God promised to the fathers, and to reign in it, when they rise again to behold God in this creation which is renovated, and that the judgment should take place afterwards.
... God made promise of the earth to Abraham and his seed; yet neither Abraham nor his seed, that is, those who are justified by faith, do now receive any inheritance in it; but they shall receive it at the resurrection of the just. For God is true and faithful; and on this account He said, "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth." Matthew 5:5” (Against Heresies, Book V, Ch 32.)
(Isaiah 26:19-21) “Thy dead men shall live, my slain shall rise again: awake, and give praise, ye that dwell in the dust: for thy dew is the dew of the light: and the land of the giants thou shalt pull down into ruin. Go, my people, enter into thy chambers, shut thy doors upon thee, hide thyself a little for a moment, until the indignation pass away. For behold the Lord will come out of his place, to visit the iniquity of the inhabitant of the earth against him: and the earth shall disclose her blood, and shall cover her slain no more.”
(Ezekiel 37:12-14) “Therefore prophesy, and say to them: Thus saith the Lord God: Behold I will open your graves, and will bring you out of your sepulchres, O my people: and will bring you into the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall have opened your sepulchres, and shall have brought you out of your graves, O my people: And shall have put my spirit in you, and you shall live, and I shall make you rest upon your own land: and you shall know that I the Lord have spoken, and done it, saith the Lord God:”
St. Irenaeus: “... "For, behold," says Isaiah, "the day of the Lord comes past remedy, full of fury and wrath, to lay waste the city of the earth, and to root sinners out of it." Is 13:9 And again he says, "Let him be taken away, that he behold not the glory of God." Is 26:10 And when these things are done, he says, "God will remove men far away, and those that are left shall multiply in the earth." Is 6:12 "And they shall build houses, and shall inhabit them themselves: and plant vineyards, and eat of them themselves." Is 65:21 For all these and other words were unquestionably spoken in reference to the resurrection of the just, which takes place after the coming of Antichrist, and the destruction of all nations under his rule; in [the times of] which [resurrection] the righteous shall reign in the earth, ...
... John, therefore, did distinctly foresee the first "resurrection of the just," and the inheritance in the kingdom of the earth; ...” (Against Heresies, Book V, Ch 35, 36)
(Isaiah 6:11-13) “And I said: How long, O Lord? And he said: Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land shall be left desolate. And the Lord shall remove men far away, and she shall be multiplied that was left in the midst of the earth. And there shall be still a tithing therein, and she shall turn, and shall be made a show as a turpentine tree, and as an oak that spreadeth its branches: that which shall stand therein, shall be a holy seed.”
“ ‘When the Son of Man comes, will He still find faith on the earth?’ (Lk 18:8) He will come suddenly, and the world will not be ready for his coming. He will come for a judgment for which man will find himself unprepared. He will come to establish his kingdom in the world, after having defeated and annihilated his enemies.” — #166
(Psalms 110:1) “A psalm for David. The Lord said to my Lord: Sit thou at my right hand: Until I make thy enemies thy footstool.”
“The glorious reign of Christ, which will be established in your midst, with the second coming of Jesus in the world, is close at hand. This is his return in glory. This is his glorious return, to establish his reign in your midst and to bring all humanity, redeemed by his most precious blood, back to the state of his new terrestrial paradise.
That which is being prepared is so great that its equal has never existed since the creation of the world. Prepare yourselves with humility, with faith, with intense prayer.” — #435
“I was chosen by the Most Holy Trinity to become the Mother of the Second Advent, and thus my motherly task is that of preparing the Church and all humanity to receive Jesus, who is returning to you in glory. His second coming will take place in the light of his divinity, because Jesus will return to you on the clouds of heaven, in the splendor of his royalty and will make subject to Himself the peoples and the nations of the earth, and all his enemies will be crushed under the throne of his universal dominion.” — #438
(Psalms 110:5-7) “The Lord at thy right hand hath broken kings in the day of his wrath. He shall judge among nations, he shall fill ruins: he shall crush the heads in the land of many. He shall drink of the torrent in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.”
St. Bernard, Abbot and Doctor (1090-1153 AD): “... this coming lies between the other two, it is like a road on which we travel from the first coming to the last. In the first, Christ was our redemption; in the last, he will appear as our life; in this middle coming, he is our rest and consolation.
... The great Prophet who will build the new Jerusalem will come, the one who makes all things new. This coming will fulfill what is written: As we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, we shall also bear the likeness of the heavenly man. Just as Adam's sin spread through all mankind and took hold of all, so Christ, who created and redeemed all, will glorify all, once he takes possession of all.”
St. Justin Martyr (100-165 AD): “... I and every other orthodox Christian feel certain that there will be a resurrection of the flesh, followed by a thousand years in the rebuilt, embellished, and enlarged city of Jerusalem, as was announced by the Prophets Ezekiel, Isaiah and others.
... we understand that a period of one thousand years is indicated in symbolic language. ... Moreover, a man among us named John, one of Christ's Apostles, received a revelation and foretold that the followers of Christ would dwell in Jerusalem for a thousand years, and that afterwards the universal and, in short, everlasting resurrection and judgment would take place.” (Dialogue with Trypho, Ch 80, 81.)
“as Jesus is truly in heaven, so also is He truly present on earth in the Eucharist: with his Body, his Blood, his Soul and his Divinity.” — #176
“His glorious reign will shine forth above all in the triumph of his Eucharistic Person, because the Eucharist will once again be the heart and center of the whole life of the Church.” — #176
“Jesus in the Eucharist will once again be the center of your ecclesial gatherings, because the Church is his temple, his house which has been built above all that his divine presence may shine forth in your midst.” — #176
“The Eucharistic Jesus will release all his power of love, which will transform souls, the Church and all humanity.
Thus the Eucharist becomes a sign of Jesus who, still today, loves you to the end, because He is leading you to the end of these times of yours, to introduce you into the new era of holiness and of grace, toward which you are all journeying and which will begin at the moment when Jesus will have restored his glorious reign in your midst.” — #421
Tertullian (160-225 AD): “But we do confess that a kingdom is promised to us upon the earth, although before heaven, only in another state of existence; inasmuch as it will be after the resurrection for a thousand years in the divinely-built city of Jerusalem, ‘letdown from heaven,’ which the apostle also calls ‘our mother from above;’ ...” (Tertullian in ‘Against Marcion’, Book III, Ch XXV.)
(Isaiah 11:6-9 RSV Catholic Bible) “The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf and the lion and the fatling together, and a little child shall lead them. The cow and the bear shall feed; their young shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. The sucking child shall play over the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the adder's den. They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.”
“the immense pain of these last times prepares the birth of a new era, the new times, when Jesus will come in the splendor of his glory and will restore his reign in the world. Then all creation, set free from the slavery of sin and of death, will know the splendor of a second terrestrial paradise, in which God will dwell with you, will wipe away every tear, and there will no longer be day or night, because the former things have passed away and your light will be that of the Lamb and of the new Jerusalem come down from heaven upon the earth, ready as a bride for her Spouse.” — #431
(Isaiah 60:19-22 RSV Catholic Bible) “The sun shall be no more your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you by night; but the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Your sun shall no more go down, nor your moon withdraw itself; for the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your days of mourning shall be ended. Your people shall all be righteous; they shall possess the land for ever, the shoot of my planting, the work of my hands, that I might be glorified. The least one shall become a clan, and the smallest one a mighty nation; I am the LORD; in its time I will hasten it.”
“The new era, which awaits you, corresponds to a particular encounter of love, of light and of life between paradise, where I am in perfect blessedness with the angels and the saints, and earth, where you, my children, live in the midst of many dangers and innumerable tribulations. This is the heavenly Jerusalem, which comes down from heaven upon earth, to transform it completely and to thus shape the new heavens and the new earth.” — #453
Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774-1824): “As the tabernacle reposed there, I saw it, by the influx of grace descending upon it from Mary and the cooperation of the whole heavenly court, increase in six until it became first a church and then a great Shining city which slowly sank to the earth. I know not how it was, but l saw multitudes of living beings, first only their heads and then the whole figure, as if the earth on which they stood was drawing near to me and, at last, they were suddenly landed in the new Jerusalem, the new city which had descended upon the old Jerusalem, and which had now come upon earth. And here the vision ended.” (The Life of Anne Catherine Emmerich, Vol. 3, Ch XI.)
“The new era, which I announce to you, coincides with the complete fulfillment of the divine Will, so that at last there is coming about that which Jesus taught you to ask for, from the Heavenly Father: ‘Your Will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.’ (Mt 6:10)” — #453
“The new era, which I am preparing for you, coincides with the defeat of Satan and of his universal reign. All his power is destroyed. He is bound, with all the wicked spirits, and shut up in hell from which he will not be able to get out to do harm in the world.” — #453
“The second Pentecost will come like a dew upon the world and will transform the desert into a garden, in which all humanity will run, like a spouse, to meet her Lord, in a renewed covenant of love with Him. Thus the Most Holy Trinity will receive its great glory, and Jesus will restore his glorious reign of love among you.” — #428
“... And so today, I invite you to unite your prayer to mine, so that the Spirit of the Lord may come down upon you, with all his gifts. Come, O Holy Spirit. Come, and change the face of the earth. Come, quickly. Come, in these last times. Come, now that the great trial has arrived. Come, and bring us your second Pentecost, so that our eyes may see your greatest miracle, that of the new heavens and new earth.” — #496
“There will be one common law, one only faith, one baptism, one religion. All nations shall recognize the Holy See of Rome and shall pay homage to the Pope.” (St. Caesar of Arles 469-453)
“the triumph of religion will be so great that no one has ever seen the equal. All injustices will be repaired, civil laws will be formed in harmony with the laws of God and of the Church.” (Sister Marianne 18th C.)
“After the frightful punishment I saw a great light appear upon the earth ... All men shall become Catholics, ...” (Blessed Elizabeth Canori-Mora 19th Century)
“After God has purified the world, faith and peace will return. Whole nations will adhere to the teachings of the Catholic Church.” (Mother Alphonse-Marie 1814-1867)
“the Lord showed me how beautiful the world will be after this awful punishment.” (Maria Steiner, 19th C.)
“In these times of purification, many are led astray by other words. In fact, my Adversary succeeds in seducing even the good by false manifestations of the supernatural in order to bring about deception and confusion on all sides. He will succeed in working many prodigies which will beguile the minds of even the good.” — #173
“... Do not say therefore: ‘How much of what you predicted to us has not come true!’ Instead, give thanks with me to the Heavenly Father because at the response of your prayer and consecration, your suffering, and on account of the immense suffering of so many of my poor children, again He alters the period of justice, to permit that of the great mercy to come to flower...” — #282
“My light will become continuously stronger in order to announce the coming of Jesus, King of justice and of peace, who will renew all things.” — #391
“Dear children! Today I call you to pray and fast for my intentions, because satan wants to destroy my plan. Here I began with this parish and invited the entire world. Many have responded, but there is an enormous number of those who do not want to hear or accept my call. Therefore, you who have said 'yes', be strong and resolute. Thank you for having responded to my call.” — Our Lady of Medjugorje (Aug 25, 2011)
