The "illumination of conscience" or "Warning" is where God will reveal to each person the condition of their soul; all the sins they have committed and how they have hurt others.  The Illumination has been predicted by several saints (most notably St. Faustina) and at Garabandal http://www.pdtsigns.com/garabandal.html
At Garabandal the Illumination is grouped with The Miracle and The Chastisement.  The seers at Garabandal gave hints as to when this would happen.  There has been speculation every year over the last decade that  "this is the year!"  Well, although this site is wary of "date setting" and has never been successful at that, we have received an interesting prediction from Chris De Bodt from Belgium.  He gives the dates for the Illumination or Warning and the Miracle.   Following Chris's predictions is an interesting article from SpiritDaily.com also hinting at the soon fulfilment of these events and descriptions of what they will be like.  Another PDT favorite, Mark Mallett, gives his input on the matter, and then a softer side of how we are to come to each other's aid during these times, through Anne.

First, Chris De Bodt notes the following:
  1. Pope John Paul II will be beatified on May, 1st [Divine Mercy]
  2. His tomb will be moved to the chapel of San Sabastian
  3. San Sabastian = San Sebastian de Garabandal (review the Garabandal apparitions and the predicted Warning, Miracle and Chastisement  on the PDT home page)
  4. November 13th 2012, anniversary date of the last apparition of Garabandal = total solar eclipse =  could be the GREAT WARNING
  5. Within a year after the warning  would be the GREAT MIRACLE:
    1. predicted between the 8th and the 16th of March, April or May on a Thursday evening
    2. and that it would coincide with a great and happy event in the Vatican (Could the Happy Feast = Canonization of John Paul II ?)
    3. and coincide with the feastday of a martyr of the eucharist (NOTE THURSDAY APRIL 11th 2013, Feast of Stanislaus of Cracow, murdered while celebrating Mass at the age of 49 years)  

Chris notes that Mari-Loli Mazon, seer of Garabandal who died last year and who knew the date of the warning,  told that the Great Warning will occur shortly after a synod of bishops.  Synods of bishops always end on the last Sunday of October + synods of bishops didn’t exist at the time of Garabandal.   They started later, after Vatican II.

The time frame of 2011-2013 surely seems ripe for signs and wonders; for the fulfilment of the secrets of Medjugorje.  The Warning is supposed to happen when things seem to be at its worst.  When places that were cold are warm and those that should be warm are cold (sounds like a pole shift).   St. Faustina's prophecies say that Jesus will show His great mercies and those that do not accept them will suffer His judgement.

FOR YOUR DISCERNMENT: DOES HOUSEWIFE IN MINNESOTA HEAR IN EAR VOICE OF THE LORD?

By Michael H. Brown

Often, I'm at a loss to know what to make of locutions and during the past ten years have not read too many of them -- overwhelmed, as one can be, with messages.

Many seemed a bit long, or too dire, or repetitious.

Was it really the Holy Spirit speaking? No doubt, those receiving them are mainly excellent people and often inspired. But a person had to constantly ask this question, and have faith that the best defense was fasting, daily Mass, and prayer. I would be careful about even approaching these matters without those three components, and even then, of course, the most well-intentioned can be deceived. Priests are especially targeted.

One I did focus upon was a prophecy that serves as the foundation for Tower of Light. That was because elements of it already had come to pass -- had turned out accurate -- and because iit was packed with power, saying many things on different levels in relatively few words. That's known as "economy of language," and can be seen in messages from such places as Fatima: every word counts.

In my opinion, such is a standard of discernment.

Are there exceptions? Are there lengthy, repetitious messages that should be considered nonetheless?

Recently I have taken a look at a set of such alleged missives because they seemed to tie in mysteriously in a number of ways with the Tower prophecy, and because a priest who serves as the spiritual director for the recipient informs me that the messages have been read or at least reviewed in some fashion by officials at the Vatican, who, he said, encouraged their dissemination.

The priest, no doubt, is a fine one: Father Joel Cycenas of Minnesota, who is currently at St. Joseph's in Taylor's Falls. He informed me that the locutionist is a 31-year-old named Jennifer who is the mother of four children and prefers that her last name not be used.

What caught my attention and caused me to take a closer look is that Father Cycenas says he has accompanied her and her father to Rome on two occasions -- and specifically the Vatican (where they found themselves, against all odds, in the inner sanctum, in a way they strongly felt was orchestrated above) -- and that the messages have been given to Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, who was personal secretary of Pope John Paul II, and Monsignor Pawel Ptasznik, who was head of the Polish Section in Vatican’s Secretariat of State. "Monsignor Pawel said the Pope read them," asserts Father Cycenas. "He gave us the thumbs-up and said the Pope looked at them and [Pawel] said to Jennifer, 'get them out there. This is a message the world needs to hear.'

"You have to be skeptical at first," says Father Cycenas. "She was telling me some things and I was skeptical but when I met her there was humility. I feel comfortable and confident and convicted that these are coming from the Lord."

We will leave that  to your discernment. There is no telling how much time Pope John Paul spent with the messages. He was handed dozens of message books, perhaps hundreds, during his pontificate, and indeed was open to certain of them -- most notably those of Medjugorje. He allowed the approval of Betania, Venezuela, and Kibeho, Rwanda -- both with rather dramatic prophecies -- and met privately with Ukrainian mystic Josyp Terelya on several occasions. He also met with a seer from Medjugorje. His openness to messages alleged to be from Jesus or the Blessed Mother can be traced at least to his involvement as the Polish Cardinal who lifted the restrictions on the equally dramatic messages of Saint Faustina, whom he later canonized.

Another aspect that caused me to take a look at the messages is that the Minnesota woman explained to me that these are not interior or "inner" locutions, but rather a voice that she hears in her physical ears, in an auditory fashion, as she hears any other person. Such are rare and are known as auricular locutions. They are interesting because an interior locution is extremely difficult to differentiate with a person's own interior thought process, where a voice in the ear, as a physical sound, is unmistakable.

But does that make it good? Does that make it from God?

It makes it worthy of further discernment and in that spirit we see that Jennifer claims the Voice is that of Jesus.

"In April of 2001 while I was at Mass I began to hear the words, 'Come to Me,'" recounts the Minnesota housewife. "These words continued to repeat. I was wondering who was whispering in my ear, yet it did not sound like a whisper. The voice that I was hearing was a man's voice, but very soft and gentle."

After Mass, she asked her husband if he heard it also, and he said no. But every subsequent Sunday she heard the voice, and the closer she came to the Eucharist -- Communion -- the stronger the words were. Above the altar, the Crucifix came alive for her.

"After a couple of months of putting it off and not telling this priest the words that Jesus gave me, it was placed on my heart so heavily one day that I needed to speak with this priest," she says. "So I called him and told him that this will most likely be the strangest phone call you will ever receive, but I am hearing this voice that told me that I am supposed to call you and tell you these words. His response to me was, 'How soon can you come into my office?'"

In July of 2001 Jennifer asserts that when she asked who he was, the answer was, "I am He Who came to shed the sins of the world." And so for our purposes here we will use the upper case "He."

Now onto the crux: The messages were serious. Some discern deceptive ones as being those that offer no hope. These are serious, although perhaps not dire. That is another matter for discernment. If they cause fear, we must be wary. God is not a God of fear but a God of love -- albeit at times tough love. Jesus could be very serious -- was often very serious.

The messages, says Jennifer, are about "the warning to come." They are about the current "turbulence" in the world, which she says she was told is already part of the "chastisement."

And off we go from there. As of March 19, 2007, she had received 1,700 messages. She no longer gets public ones. Those she has recorded constantly repeat the theme of major coming events due to sin in the world -- especially abortion, which the Lord told her is the greatest of all sins and will cause the earth to react against us.

"Pray," He said, in messages that we here present as composites, "for I will soon shake this earth. The time will come when there will be no light. The time will soon come when all will be brought to their knees.

"My child, darkness will soon cover this earth. The only light will be that of My love. Those who are not lost in darkness will see My Light and witness My love for them.

"Each soul is a perfection of My creation. Each soul has a mission.

"Too many are ruining My creation. Too many are trying to control nature. The earth is showing signs of man's sinfulness and yet many do not wake up.

"My people, do you see the signs?" He supposedly said in September of 2004. "For some they appear to be small and yet, in time, you will see My Father's wrath has slowly begun to awaken mankind.

"Just as I told Noah that a great punishment would come to My people for their sinfulness, I am again warning My people to repent and change their ways because a great chastisement is going to come and all will need to be in a state of grace.

"You are witnessing storms and fires and yet this is just the beginning," say the messages -- contained in a thick volume entitled Words From Jesus and distributed without charge from a website dedicated to the alleged revelations.

"My people, you must not fear, for My angels will lead you to your place of refuge, but it is important that you follow the signs.

"The days are growing shorter and great light shall soon fall upon mankind.

"Nations will rise and crumble and you will see a great collapse in your financial institutions.

"My Church will be cleansed of its filth when I weed out those who are not My true chosen sons. Those who have failed to fulfill their own selfish desires will see each and every soul they have neglected.

"Go forth and cleanse your soul, for the hour is drawing closer before the awakening of mankind.

"My people," He said in August of 2004 -- bringing to mind recent messages from Medjugorje, "take heed to the signs, take heed to the times in which you live.

"Mountain tops will awaken and the rock of the earth will split," Jesus is quoted as saying -- a theme that is then harped upon: that we are coming into a time of quakes and especially volcanic activity.

"My people, the mountains that have been sleeping will soon be awakened and it will ripple all across this world. Nations will soon rise up against one another, for this country that I have blessed with many fruits will be awakened by great fire, and ash will cover the valleys and the seas will no longer be calm."

Even mountains deep in the sea, she was told, will be "awakened."

"I come to warn you that vessels that have been sleeping will soon awaken, sending great fire and ash.

"My creation is no longer My Creation in the eyes of man, for it is man that believes he is dictator of his own destination. It is because of the blood of the innocent that you will be plagued with great trials and suffering.

"The forces of evil will rise from the ports of the sea and will present the mark of the beast.

"My words of warning have come to the time of expiration. Streams of light will soon pour forth from Heaven and shine into the souls of mankind. My people, those of you who stand for man engaging with man and woman with woman are a witness to evil. Those of you who choose to take away life at any stage are a witness to evil. Those of you who commit adultery and choose to destroy a marriage that is united in Me will see your hour of judgment.

"Those of you who choose to idolize money and power will come to see that your ways are not My ways and your ways will become simplified.

"My words are soon to expire, for the wall that holds back the seas will soon come down. You will be culminated in ash and darkness," the messages repeat again. "My people, this world will no longer be as you have come to know it. All must prepare for the time is drawing near."

And here we can break in to note the similarities to the prophecies in Tower of Light -- whether or not they are from the same source, and whether or not Jennifer may have heard snippets of them.

In the 1990 prophecy, it was said that , "Soon the world will not be the world you know. I am not speaking of a barren world, or one depopulated, but of the end of your technological era. Many inventions of mankind will be broken down and there will be more of a peasant attitude and way of life everywhere" -- a simplified way.

It was said in the 1990 prophecy that there would be "loud rumblings" -- as Jennifer too heard a number of times that there would be geophysical disturbances.

In the 1990 prophecy, it was claimed that Jesus would present Himself in a "towering light," and Jennifer says she heard a description of Him coming -- or manifesting, in some fashion -- in "radiant splendor."

Just another prophecy as there have been such prophecies of Christ's return for centuries? Is it but for itching ears?

As in Jennifer's locutions, there was a heavenly complaint in Tower about the way man has treated nature -- a theme recently taken up by Pope Benedict. There was mention of plague, as too in these reputed locutions. There is the mention of a time of chaos, as also in the 1990 missive, while these too bear similarities in constant use of the word "awakening" with the published messages of Venezuelan mystic Maria Esperanza.

And there was the Tower prophecy that said, "When the huge light is seen, I will act in a way I have not acted before" -- a notion brought to mind with the locutions from Minnesota when it is said that "you will see the sign coming out of the east.

"You will see storm after storm and just as one finishes another will rise," said a message from August 3, 2004 -- just before an historically active hurricane season in Florida -- whereby some areas were hit more than once -- and a year to the month before "Katrina."

Just before the Asian tsunami of December 26, 2004, Jennifer quoted Jesus as saying, "The sea will awaken and it will ripple all across this world" -- an allusion to an event that may as yet be in the future but curious coming as it did on December 5 -- three weeks before the historic tsunami and two weeks before the second prophecy in Tower of Light.

Structures, said Jennifer, quoting the Lord, would "come tumbling as the roar of the lion intensifies" -- interesting in that Maria Esperanza identified the terrorist behind September 11 as "a roaring lion" before the name Osama Bin Laden was widely known and before we discovered that in some translations "Osama" means "roaring lion." Of course, the lion is also a symbol of the devil.

Before delving into such messages, we recommend, as always, deep prayer and fasting. To avoid fasting before opening up to alleged supernatural encounters is to invite trouble. Spirits can attach to seers and their messages, as well as those who draw close to them. We are told by Scripture not to despise prophecy, but to take from it what is good, after we have tested it -- meaning that prophecy is not to be accepted wholesale, but discerned, from message to message, as we recognize that humans are fallible.

But there is certainly a widespread sense -- even among those with no mystical inclination -- that our times are special and that events are down the road, unusual events, good and bad, dark and glorious.

"My people," Jennifer quotes the Lord as warning, "so many have begun to keep a watchful eye to the sight of many earthquakes, yet you do not realize that the great shifting of the earth will come from a place that has been sleeping.

"This earthquake will cause much chaos and destruction and it will come and catch so many off guard, for that is why I have told you to take heed of the signs.

"Your winter will rise with great force and for some it will present times of hardship."

"When you see the sign of light come from the east, know that the Son of Man is about to come and awaken your soul," it repeats, echoing prophecies of a great light along with the concept of an unusual darkness that first came from nuns in the late 1700s and early 1800s.

In a vision Jennifer asserts that she saw a darkness during what seemed like the afternoon. "I see the sky opening up and I can hear long, drawn-out claps of thunder. When I look up I see Jesus bleeding on the Cross and people are falling to their knees."

This was another irony: the cover of Jennifer's book has a cross in the sky as does Tower. Just a reflection of past prophecies, such as those of Divine Mercy (and Sister Faustina)? Old concepts of three dark days? Does it mean anything?

"It is in the calmness that mankind will be caught off guard." Right now, she seemed to be relating, the Lord is working gradually. There is a deliberate but gathering force. "One by one, I will send forth signs that man will not be able to justify," Jennifer quoted Christ as telling her. "The bells of My Church will be silenced," He added -- an ironic remark in light of a recent story about a church in Scandinavia that was ordered by a court to halt the ringing of its bells.

"Behold these times which you have been given, for your time of warning is near."

"I could see millions of people from nations from all the lands," said Jennifer at 3 p.m. on Christmas Day in 2004 --the day of the tsunami. "Many seemed confused as they were looking up toward the sky."

Fear of fire, as the 1990 prophecy foresaw?

Those who fear, said Jesus, allegedly, "fear only themselves." The devil, Jennifer told me, "uses the mind to trick the body to trap the soul." There is no greater offense, she quoted Christ as saying, "than to take the life of My unborn."

"The storm is on the horizon" -- and so forth, repeated often over 447 pages, by a woman who -- whatever one's discernment -- is sincere and a mature Catholic, from a family of nine children, with a devout dad who first alerted us. She says that previous to receiving the messages, she was not acquainted with other such prophecies.

We always issue strong cautions because at times we have seen the wrong kinds of spirits latch onto those who receive such "words" and also onto those who become involved with them. One must always to be on the watch for evil or familiar spirits. They too can speak to us.

But we are also mindful that we ignore prophets at our own risk.

After decades of warnings, is the time of warning really about to expire?

Let us say this: a great darkness is coming. In many ways, it is already here. But so too, in some way, some day, will come a great Light.

MARK MALLETT: Time Is Very Short!

 
http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=503#more-503
 
 
 
        MARK MALLETT
-Spiritual Food For Thought- 
 
 
 
TIME IS VERY SHORT!
 
 
ONCE again, I wish that the trumpets being blown by God's angels would be heard more clearly in our hearts!
 
                The time is very short!
 
I sensed the Blessed Mother saying today that the years we live in now are nearly an illusion. That the years we are living in now are like the last days of a patient who is kept alive by a respirator, but who would die if the machine were turned off. Or like those clouds which, after the sun has set, illumine the sky, shedding new light for a few more brief moments. God has provided these clouds to guide a few more souls whoever will listen into the Ark of Refuge (http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=440) before the Great Storm (http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=497) is unleashed upon the world.

 
                Can you not see? Can you not hear? Can you not tell the signs of the times? Why then do you spend your days in dissipation, chasing phantoms, and polishing your idols? Can you not perceive that this present age is passing, and all that is temporal will be tested by fire? Oh, that you would indeed be set aflame with the fire of my Immaculate Heart consumed by the living flame of love, burning infinitely and endlessly in the breast of my Son. Draw near to this flame while there is still time. I do not say that you have much time left. But I do say that you should be wise with what you have been given. The last luminous clouds of truth are about to vanish, and the earth as you know it will be plunged into great darkness, the darkness of its own sin. Race, then. Race to my Immaculate Heart. For while there is still time, I will receive you like a mother hen gathering her chicks beneath her wings. I have wept, and prayed, and interceded for these last moments for you! Oh, my grief my grief for those who have not taken advantage of this gift from Heaven!
 
                Pray for souls. Pray for the lost sheep. Pray for those who are in danger of losing their souls, for they are many. Never discount the mysterious and ineffable Mercy of my Son. But waste no more time, for "time now is merely an illusion."
 
 
                But take heed to yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a snare; for it will come upon all who dwell upon the face of the whole earth. But watch at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that will take place, and to stand before the Son of Man. (Luke 21:34-36)

MARK MALLETT: The Great Sign

 
http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=502#more-502
 
 
 
        MARK MALLETT
-Spiritual Food For Thought- 
 
 
 
THE GREAT SIGN
 
 
MODERN mystics and seers tell us that after the so-called "illumination of conscience," in which everyone on the face of the earth will see the condition of his or her soul (see The Eye of the Storm: http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=448), an extraordinary and permanent sign will be given at one or many apparitions sites.
 
                There is coming the great moment of a great day of light. The consciences of this beloved people must be violently shaken so that they may "put their house in order" and offer to Jesus the just reparation for the daily infidelities that are committed on the part of sinners? it is the hour of decision for mankind. -- Maria Esperanza, Antichrist and the End Times, Fr. Joseph Innanuzzi, Page 37
 

This "hour of decision" will be reinforced with some kind of permanent miracle. I believe it may be a sign which involves the Blessed Mother.

 
                A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.  She was with child and wailed aloud in pain as she labored to give birth. (Rev 12:1-2)

 
Two prominent souls in the Church foresaw God permitting a sign, both Marian and Christological in nature, which will be given for the conversion of souls before a great chastisement:
 

                My right hand prepares miracles and My Name shall be glorified in all the world. I shall be pleased to break the pride of the wicked and much more admirable and extraordinary will be "the event" that will come out of our encounter two glorious thrones will arise, one of My sacred Heart and the other of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. -- Servant of God Marthe Robin (1902-1981), Antichrist and the End Times, Fr. Joseph Iannuzzi, p. 53; St. Andrew?s Productions

                I saw a shining red heart floating in the air. From one side flowed a current of white light to the wound of the Sacred Side, and from the other a second current fell upon the Church in many regions; its rays attracted numerous souls who, by the Heart and the current of light, entered into the side of Jesus. I was told that this was the Heart of Mary.  -- Blessed Catherine Emmerich, The Life of Jesus Christ and Biblical Revelations, Vol 1, pp. 567-568.
 
Whatever form it takes, I believe it is precisely this miracle which will, at the same time as producing further and numerous conversions, give rise to the false signs and wonders which Satan will counter with to deceive many, and even explain away the supernatural origin of the Great Sign. Note what occurs immediately after the sign of the "woman clothed with the sun? with child":
 
                Then another sign appeared in the sky; it was a huge red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on its heads were seven diadems. Its tail swept away a third of the stars in the sky and hurled them down to the earth. (12:1)
 
 
 
IN SCRIPTURE

 
I have often written that I believe the universal Church is presently in the Garden of Gethsemane (http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=437), that time when she is facing her weakness and the test of faith. If that is so, the illumination of conscience and Great Sign can be seen in that context in the following way

 
There is a kind of illumination of conscience when Jesus reveals His divinity to the guards of the chief priests in the Garden shortly after His agony:
 
                Judas got a band of soldiers and guards from the chief priests and the Pharisees and went there with lanterns, torches, and weapons. Jesus, knowing everything that was going to happen to him, went out and said to them, "Whom are you looking for?" They answered him, "Jesus the Nazorean." He said to them, "I AM." Judas his betrayer was also with them. When he said to them, "I AM," they turned away and fell to the ground. So he again asked them, "Whom are you looking for?" They said, "Jesus the Nazorean." Jesus answered, "I told you that I AM. (John 18:3-8)

 
The retinue which came to seize Christ are themselves seized with some kind of fear and awe as Jesus identifies Himself as Yahweh, which translated, means "I AM." 
 
This is followed by a great miracle:
 
                Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest?s slave and cut off his right ear. But Jesus said, "No more of this!" And he touched his ear and healed him. (John 18:10; Luke 22:51)
 
Then followed the persecution and passion of Jesus.
 
There is coming a moment when God will illumine our consciences and we will understand Jesus to be "I AM," our God and savior. This will be followed by a Great Sign in which many will be healed, both physically and spiritually. Most important, spiritual hearing will be restored so that the voice of the Great Shepherd is heard.

 
The response to this Sign will determine, say the seers, the extent and depth of the following chastisement which is necessary to purify the world -- the beginning of that fearsome and awesome Day of the Lord.

 
                It's not going to be the end, and its going to happen pretty soon. It's going to renew us completely He is coming -- not the end of the world, but the end of this century's agony. This century is purifying, and after will come peace and love. -- Maria Esperanza, The Bridge to Heaven, SSpirit Daily Publications, 1993.

 HEAVENLY  MAP
 
 
 
BEFORE I lay out the map of these writings below as they have unfolded this past year, the question is, where do we begin?
 
 
THE HOUR IS HERE, AND IS COMING

 
 I have often written saying that the Church is "in the Garden of Gethsemane." But I have also written saying we are anticipating a "Transfiguration moment" { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=468 } when we will see the condition of our souls as God sees them. In Scripture, the transfiguration preceded the Garden. However, in a certain sense, the agony of Jesus began with the transfiguration. For it was there that Moses and Elijah instructed Jesus to go down to Jerusalem where He would suffer and die.

 
So as I will present here below, I see the Transfiguration and Garden of Gethsemane for the Church as events which are occurring, and yet, still to be anticipated.
 

Indeed, many souls are already in that time of transfiguration now (this period of anticipation of both suffering and glory). It seems as though there is a Great Awakening { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=474 } whereby many souls are suddenly recognizing the corruption within society as never before. They are recognizing corruption within their own souls, and the need to repent. They are experiencing anew the great love and mercy of God. And they are being given the understanding of coming trials, and the night which the Church must pass through into a new dawn of peace.

 
Just as Moses and Elijah forewarned Jesus, we also have been privileged for several decades to have been visited by the Mother of God to prepare the Church for the days ahead. God blessed us with many "Elijahs" who have spoken prophetic words of admonition and encouragement.
 
 
Indeed, these are the days of Elijah. Just as Jesus descended the mountain of His transfiguration into the valley of interior sorrow over His coming passion, we are also living in that interior Garden of Gethsemane as we approach the hour of decision where people will either flee into the false peace and security of a "new world order," or remain to drink the cup of glory and share in the eternal Resurrection { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=477 } of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are already living in the Transfiguration { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=468 } as many Christians are being awakened to the mission which lies ahead of them. Indeed, Christians throughout the world are simultaneously passing through the baptism, ministry, passion, tomb, and resurrection of our Lord.
 

So then, when we speak of a map or chronology of events here, I am referring to events which are universal in scope and of utmost significance for the Church and mankind. I believe the particular character of these writings that has unfolded is that "they lay prophetic events out within the context and path of our Lord?s Passion."

 
                Before Christ's second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the "mystery of iniquity" in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh. -- Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 675 

 
Events sequenced here, then, follow the Passion, Death, Resurrection, and Ascension of our Lord: the Body follows the Head wherever He goes.
 
 
A HEAVENLY MAP
 

Here is a chronology of events as understood through the writings of the Early Church Fathers, the Catechism, and Sacred Scripture, and further illuminated by the approved private revelation of mystics, saints, and seers. (If you click on the URL, it will take you to the pertinent writings)

 
            -  THE TRANSFIGURATION { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=468 }: This current period in which the Mother of God is appearing to us, preparing us for, and leading us to a significant intervention of God?s mercy in an "ILLUMINATION OF CONSCIENCE" { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=448 } or "warning" in which each soul sees himself in the light of truth as though it were a miniature judgment (for many, a process already begun; cf. John 18:3-8; Rev 6:1) . It is a moment in which souls will perceive to one degree or another either their path of eternal punishment, or path of glory, according to how they have responded during this TIME OF GRACE (Rev 1:1, 3) { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=328 } just as Jesus was transfigured in glory, and yet simultaneously faced the "hell" that lay before Him (Matt 17:2-3). I believe this also correlates with a period in which Jesus said we would see tremendous upheaval in nature. But this, He said, was only "the beginning of the LABOR PAINS." (see Matt 24:7-8) { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=375 }

 
            -  THE GREAT SIGN { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=502 }: Following the illumination, a permanent sign will be given to the entire world, a miracle to bring healing and confirmation to repentant souls (Luke 22:51). The degree of repentance after the warning and Sign will be the degree to which the following chastisements (Rev 6:3-17) { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=497 } are lessened.

 
            -  THE GREAT SCATTERING (Zec 13:7) { <http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=435 }: A FALSE PROPHET { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=451 } will arise as an instrument of purification seeking to trump with false signs and wonders the Great Sign { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=502 }, deceiving many (Rev 13:11-18; Matt 24:10-13). The Holy Father will be persecuted and driven from Rome (Matt 26:31), and the Church will enter into her own Passion (CCC 677) { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=262 }. The False Prophet and Beast, the ANTICHRIST { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=463 }, will reign for a short period, persecuting the Church and martyring many (Matt 24:9).

 
            -  The THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=499 }: the "time of the tomb" ensues (Rev 6:12-17, Wis 17:1-18:4), possibly produced by a comet, as God purifies the world of evil, casting the False Prophet and Beast into the "fiery pool," and chaining Satan for a symbolic period of a "thousand years" (Rev 19:20-20:3).

 
            -  The FIRST RESURRECTION { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=477 } occurs (Rev 20:4-6) whereby the martyrs are "raised from the dead" and the surviving remnant REIGN { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=465 }with the Eucharistic Christ (Rev 19:6) in a time of peace and unity (Rev 20:2, Zec 13:9, Is 11:4-9). This coincides with a New Pentecost, which propels the Gospel to the very ends of the earth in a New Evangelization (Matt 24:13-14, Is 11:9), bringing about the conversion of the Jews (Rom 11:25-26, Jer 30:18; 31:1-12). It is a spiritual ERA OF PEACE { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=396 } and justice, symbolized by the expression "one thousand years" in which the Church is truly made whole and holy, preparing her as a spotless bride (Rev 19:7-8, Eph 5:27) to receive Jesus in His FINAL COMING IN GLORY { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=495 }.

 
            -  Toward the end of this Era of Peacee, Satan is released and GOG AND MAGOG { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=484 }, the final Antichrist, assembles the pagan nations to war upon the Church in Jerusalem (Rev 20:7-10, Ez 38:14-16).

 
            -  CHRIST RETURNS IN GLORY (Matt 24:300) { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=495 }, the dead are resurrected (1 Thess 4:16), and the surviving Church meets Christ in the clouds in its own ASCENSION (Matt 24:31, 1 Thess 4:17) { http://www.markmallett.com/blog/?p=484 }. The Final Judgment commences (Rev 20:11-15, 2 Pt 3:10), and a New Heavens and New Earth are ushered in (Rev 21:1-7), where God will reign forever with His people in the New Jerusalem (Rev 21:10).
 
                Before his Ascension, Christ affirmed that the hour had not yet come for the glorious establishment of the messianic kingdom awaited by Israel which according to the prophets, was to bring all men the definitive order of justice, love, and peace. According to the Lord, the present time is the time of the Spirit and of witness, but also a time still marked by "distress" and the trial of evil which does not spare the Church and ushers in the struggles of the last days. It is a time of waiting and watching.

 
                The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection. The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God?s victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven. God's triumph over the revolt of evil will take the form of the Last Judgment after the final cosmic upheaval of this passing world. -- CCC, 672, 677
 
 
 
WISDOM FROM BEYOND

 
It seems presumptuous to me to suggest that this map is written in stone and exactly how it shall be. It is, however, laid out according to the lights which God has given me, the inspirations which have led my research, the guidance of my spiritual director, and most importantly, a map which several of the Early Church Father's appear to have adhered to.

 
God's wisdom is beyond -- far beyond our understanding. So, while this in fact may be the path upon which the Church is set, let us never forget the one sure path which Jesus gave us: to be as little children. I believe the strong prophetic word for the Church right now is a word from the Heavenly prophetess, our Blessed Mother -- a word I hear here speaking very clearly in my heart:

 
                Stay small. Be very little like me, as your model. Remain humble, praying my Rosary, living each moment for Jesus, seeking His will, and only His will. In this way, you will be safe, and the enemy will not be able to lead you astray.
 
Pray, pray, pray.
 
 
Yes, watch carefully, and pray.
 
 
 
 A PROPHETIC WORD
 
                As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate 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 Pope, the bishops and priests.

 
                The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres?churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.

 
                The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.
 
                Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary. I alone am able to still save you from the calamities which approach. Those who place their confidence in Me will be saved.  -- Approved message of the Blessed Virgin Mary to Sr. Agnes Sasagawa , Akita, Japan; EWTN online library.  In 1988, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, judged the messages of Akita to be reliable and worthy of belief.

September 1, 2007 monthly message as given to Anne


On the first of every month, Our Lord gives Anne a new message about His
call to service.

September 1, 2007

Jesus

Dear apostles, I send you a spirit of gentleness. Because you are called to
treat others as I treated others, you are called to be gentle with all those
around you. This call to gentleness in no way diminishes the call to live in
the truth. If you preach the truth as I did, gently, you will draw others to us
and to unity of thought and action.

In this time, when it is so important that souls be brought back into the family
of God, we must be ever so careful to be gentle with others in each interaction.
I am Jesus. I am filled with love for each soul you encounter, regardless of
their condition.

View each person through My love and treat them with My gentleness. My dearest
apostle, in order to allow yourself to heal from any wounds you yourself suffer,
you must allow Me to minister to you. I am tender hearted with your failings.

Remember this and do not turn away from Me when you feel you have failed. If
you do not allow Me to minister to you during periods of unrest, you will be
vulnerable to the distortions which can be sown by the enemy. Apostles walking
with Me inspire hope in the world. This is the plan. But My friends must
remember that apostles walking with Me also inspire fear in the enemy. The
enemy's fear causes him to lash out at the friends of the Returning King. Be at
peace in this as it has always been this way and there is no reason for anything
but confidence in My plan for each day of every life. At the same time, be
prepared to do battle for your holiness as I did battle. If you remain with Me,
the battles will make you stronger and holier. That is My goal.


Accept the gentle ministrations of your Saviour in silence and you will then be
an able carrier of this gentleness to others. Beloved friends, so loyal to your
God, you will stand out if you are gentle and it is this that I need from you.
I need you to stand out as calm and gentle representatives of the different way.
The world will remember you for your gentleness if you allow Me to teach you.
You are not called to change the world. I am called to change the world. You
are called to represent Me accurately so that I have the opportunity with each
soul you encounter.

Through your love, your kindness and your gentleness, you will create heavenly
opportunities for Me in the people around you. I will never miss an
opportunity, I promise you. I make the best possible use of your efforts. I
thank you, dear friend. Your fidelity to the Father will not be forgotten.
