11.03.17 Update
An awesome testimony of God's love for us, His healing powers, of the reality of hell and our need to cooperate with God, of big events looming on the horizon with the promise of a huge (greater than in the times of Moses)  good ending better than any movie.   http://spiritdaily.org/blog/afterlife/a-muslim-taxi-driver-converts-at-medjugorje
You are being called to share this news with as many people as you can.

Just added to the OneStepOnTheWater page : http://yowusa.com/2017/10/uk-ophelia-day/ 
A lot to absorb and pray on in the next pages.  I report this, knowing it will put fear into hearts (which I guess now is necessary), but do so to encourage people to prepare spiritually and physically;  to know what is happening and that it has been prophesied, and that there is protection in the Blood of Jesus.  What would you do if there was a great celestial event that caused 3 days of darkness?  Would you know that you are to gather your family, close all your doors, pull all the shades, do not look outside and not to venture outside because of certain death?  ...similar to the Passover. That evil will fill the darkness and possibly call out to you through your doors in familiar voices trying to get you to open the door?    Saints have been prophesying this for centuries.   Now is the time to research this and prepare because the one thing that could cause of lot of these bizarre events is Planet X.  Posted on http://yowusa.com/2017/10/uk-ophelia-day/ 
are pictures of the Planet X system from the UK after Hurricane Ophelia. 

Here is an interesting prophecy.  Plus, read the following comments which describe confirming prophecy with links to all the associated events: the three days of darkness, pole shifts, disturbances in the sun and the effects on earth, etc.

Reading the comments I felt these two links express what I've learned over the years about the times we are heading into:
and this link which I posted several years ago but now, with Nibiru peaking out behind the sun, sounds more timely:
https://newbon-bonsblog.blogspot.com/  where the visionary in-part hears from the Lord:
The darkness will descend within 3 days of this cosmic event appearing.  The darkness will commence with the earthquake.  That is why it is important for you to be inside and remain in your homes.  Like the Children of Israel who were protected when the Angel of Death passed over and saw the blood on the door posts, so all My children will be protected by the blood of the Lamb on your foreheads.  You are sealed by My blood and My Bride will be protected, no matter what is happening outside of your dwellings.

You are to close your doors and windows, draw your curtains and pray together.  During this time I will reveal Myself to each and every one of you.  Those who are already Mine will be infused with the Holy Spirit and will be transformed.  Those who are not yet Mine will be given the opportunity to receive Me as their Lord and Saviour. 
Here is a good prayer you should print out for these times:

As far the mention of Nibiru check out the latest pictures posted on Masters website: http://yowusa.com/category/planetx/

“The world is wearing out and you are about to see things that cannot be explained by science.”


Yesterday, I was just starting to watch a documentary called “Chasing Coral” about the changing ocean when the Lord had me sit down to write this word.

“Little one, they call it climate change, but do not be deceived by labels. My seas are showing signs of the end of the age. The plants and animals are dying as a wake up call! I have sent these signs as a warning.

My people must repent and humble themselves before Me before it is too late! The oceans will never again be a place teeming with animals and income. The world is wearing out and you are about to see things that cannot be explained by science. The scientists are befuddled because they seek to explain the Earth without Me! They do not have eyes to see or ears to hear, so they remain in a constant state of wonderment. They shall remain this way until the end of the age!

No longer will patterns be apparent. The Earth is set to reel on its axis. The heavens will be shaken and the tides will change. The ocean will be a source of great fear and destruction. The coast lands will no longer be a refuge. Those near the sea, listen to My voice! I AM the only refuge and peace in the days to come. Move where I say move. Stay where I say stay.

I have loved you with an everlasting love. It is not My desire that any of My people should perish, but that they should repent from their evil ways and live. SOUND THE WARNING, WATCHMAN!

Scripture References:

There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. – Luke 21:25

The earth reels like a drunkard, it sways like a hut in the wind; so heavy upon it is the guilt of its rebellion that it falls–never to rise again. – Isaiah 24:20

Lift up your eyes to the heavens, look at the earth beneath; the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment and its inhabitants die like flies. But my salvation will last forever, my righteousness will never fail. – Isaiah 51:6

People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. – Luke 21:26

The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” – Jeremiah 31:3

Say to them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, people of Israel?’ – Ezekiel 33:11

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. – 2 Peter 3:9

A rare alignment that will be seen in the sky September 2017 is also the Fulfillment of woman clothed in the Sun written of in Revelation in the bible
, an alignment  that has not happened since the birth of Christ. See http://planetxnews.com/2016/01/24/the-revelation-sign-of-planet-x-in-2017/
for an explanation of the alignment.   Then for further happenings in the sky that will bring about the end of these days (the reign of Satan).  This site describes the September 23, 2017 event very well but then proceeds to claim that Planet X will eclipse the sun on October 5, 2017 which I cannot comprehend with how slowly this Planet X thing is transpiring (I've been reporting on it since 1999).   I'm more along the thought process that this will be a slow train wreck with God giving us time between each event to repent and convert those around us.  That once things begin to happen we will have the 7 year tribulation maybe shortened to 3.5 years.  I'm also hoping that if Medjugorje is a true apparition site that the visionaries there will begin releasing the secrets as these events unfold.  Rick Wyles from Trunews.com, whom I trust, says the Lord told him his ministry would run to 2030.   But don't forget this is a Jubilee Year for Israel so I am expecting something big to happen for them during their Jewish year. 

See: http://yowusa.com/2017/06/the-nemesis-cloud/  where Marshall Masters explains that a brown dwarf sun and its planets are entering our solar system and are being witnessed.  Pictures are included.  The effects on earth will likely bring about the fulfillment of prophecies from Revelation, Garabandal, Fatima, Akita, and Medjugorje.  The last four apparitions are explained at http://www.PDTsigns.com

A good article reminding us of how Mary is our Blessed Mother and here to help us in these times.  For skeptics that claim the Miracle of the Sun was a UFO please explain the visions the children received of hell and the fulfilled prophecies the end of WWI, WWII preceded by a great sign in the sky and how the whole event was a plea to return to God, turn away from sin, and for repentance.

A lot of end of days prophecy make you think time is very short.  Well in many ways things are happening fast.  However, Terry Bennett visions cover the years out to 2028 and he says he does not see the end of the world after that.   Rick Wyles of Trunews, whom I trust as one of the most important spokesmen of these days, says the Lord told him to prepare his ministry out to 2030.  Rick says he doesn't know what happens then either.  Check out this mp3 of them conversing http://www.trunews.com/thursday-september-18-2014-terry-bennett/

Catholic prophecy  speaks of the intermediate coming.  That Jesus will not come bodily to reign at this time.  Mark Mallett has a very interesting compilation of what the Church fathers and approved prophets of these times believe will be the Intermediate Coming of Jesus Christ.  It is a little long but worthy read:  http://www.markmallett.com/blog/the-middle-coming/ 
The Intermediate Coming is when Jesus comes in spirit and power, the end of an age of the greatest purification and the beginning of an era of peace and love; not the final coming.  This will be the end of the reign of Satan's century given to him to test humanity.

Here is an interesting link to a locution from 1981 that predicted the internet and a potential wonderful future of medicine and technology:

It comes from Maria Esparanza whom you can find on the PDTsigns home page.  She was an approved mystic who suffered stigmata on Good Fridays and was known to, more than once, have a beautiful rose sprout from her chest. 


Also, the promise of a new Golden Era after the 100 year reign of Satan:
[Feedback to SpiritDaily from Rev. Emanuel Burgos: "I'm a pastor who has been following your site for over a decade. In reading your last 'Special Report,' I believe that you should consider writing an article about 2017. I know that you are 'skeptical' of dates, but the year 2017 has appeared in several of your articles on Spirit Daily.

A very good writing by Mark Mallett explaining the times in that we are living:

WE are not facing the end of the world. In fact, we are not even facing the last tribulations of the Church. What we are facing is the final confrontation in a long history of confrontations between Satan and Christ’s Church: a battle for one or the other to establish their kingdom on earth. St. John Paul II summed it up this way:

We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine Providence; it is a trial which the whole Church, and the Polish Church in particular, must take up. It is a trial of not only our nation and the Church, but in a sense a test of 2,000 years of culture and Christian civilization, with all of its consequences for human dignity, individual rights, human rights and the rights of nations. —Cardinal Karol Wojtyla

Rick Wyles of Trunews.com has a daily audiocast on the internet that can also be downloaded to your device.  He is an unmuzzled speaker of the truth with prophetic messages for the United States.  I've been listening to him since he first started broadcasting on the internet in the late 1990's and am convinced that his few visions are truly from the Lord and are warnings of things to come unless there is repentance en masse. (His visions and dreams have been confirmed by identical dreams to his daughter the same night, for instance.) Through the years he has said that he was told by the Lord that when we get to the critical stage, in the end of this era, he would be given a TV audience.  Ominously, this is happening.  Catch the August 17th episode at http://www.trunews.com/monday-august-17-2015-rick-wiles-on-jim-bakker/ 
He is the voice of truth at this time where the media is being censored and our Catholic priests and protestant ministers as a whole are being silent about the anti-Christian juggernaut that is oppressing our world.  Although he is not Catholic I am sure many of his listeners are and his message is too important to miss.

Must listen and reading, for you and yours, NOW.  I've been doing this for 30 years and now is the time to pay attention:

A number of people that I have listened to for over a decade, separate in manner but somehow voicing the same messages, have gathered in what I think is a spiritually inspired union of modern day prophets.  Rick Wiles from Trunews.com brought these people together including Steve Quayle.  Both of these people are absolutely connected to some of the most powerful men in the world that are leaking news to those they feel they can trust to get the news out.   Must listen mp3's.    Go to trunews.com and click on the listen_now button on the left.  The shows were broadcast on April 18, 19, and 20, 2012.  Maybe start with the 19th if you want to hear Steve and Rick.

Rick Wiles with prophetic dreams for this fall http://www.trunews.com/may2012.htm


Following is the intro (which links to a free video at Masters website)  to the CoasttoCoastam.com show featuring Marshall Masters.   Caution, from the Christian perspective,  Marshall is New Age (not Christ focused) but his research into near future events is notable.  Also, the Avebury crop circle he talks about is, in the opinion of this site, truly not man-made, could be from...(don't lose me here, I've been at this for nearly 3 decades)...  fallen angels; a prelude to the great deception spoken of in the bible.

from Coasttocoastam: Author and publisher Marshall Masters specializes in Planet X and 2012 research. He discussed a specific crop circle, seen in Avebury Manor, UK in 2008 that depicts the planets in our solar system in the position they'll be in on December 21, 2012. According to his decoding of the crop formation's message, "we're going to see what appears to be a second sun in the sky...and there's going to be a horrific solar storm, somewhat similar to the one portrayed in the movie Knowing, and it's going to be devastating for us," he warned. Masters believes ETs have sent this message via a crop circle in order to circumvent government suppression of the dire information.

The depiction in the Avebury crop circle indicates an incoming object in our solar system in Dec. 2012, arriving on a steep elliptical orbit, and a solar eruption extending as far out as Venus, he continued. Solar events will be even more damaging in 2013, and the grid will likely go down, leaving millions of Americans without power for many months, and even longer for the Third World nations, Masters continued. During the worse solar storms, the populace should be prepared to go underground, but in lieu of that, people should note where cell phone reception is weakest or non-existent, as these will be safer spots to be when the storm hits, he commented.

Masters also related Edgar Cayce's pole shift prediction, Ed Dames' remote viewed Solar Killshot, and other prophecies to the Avebury message, and believes we're already seeing advance signs, such as increased earthquakes, of the coming global cataclysm. He has made available, his video, Two Suns in the Sky, for free viewing.

The Day of the Lord Is Almost Upon Us

A message to Augusto Perez, theappearance.com on 8/27/2011.  Also read his newsletter describing how the alignment of the planets and comet Elenin on Sept. 29th (the day of the Jewish feast Rosh Hashana, Rosh Hashanah is the "no man knows the day or hour" festival and the feast of trumpets) is a fulfilment of Revelation 12, Rev 6:12-14 and Rev. 8 and 9.  From the report on CNN, see previous possting,  the earth could experience large earthquakes in an envelope of 3 days plus or minus and the earth will also pass through Elenin's tail on November 10-11 which could produce large fireballs  and the 3 days of darkness.  Newsletter:  http://xa.yimg.com/kq/groups/13503381/255672286/name/April-June.pdf

8/27/2011 message:
I was still in my bed, when I was awakened by the Spirit of the Lord as began saying these words to me:  "There are things about to happen that will make many people wish that the Day of the Lord was already gone, but it is only beginning".  As I was completely awake, I realized these words were still resounding in my spirit and in my head. 

The last time I experienced this was in December when He warned me that there would be an event of major proportions taking place in 2011 in the United Nations that would facilitate and usher in the New World Order and that there would be a nuclear attack on America. 


This is a sober warning that The Day of the Lord is almost upon us.  We are in the calm before the storm.  I would encourage every believer in Yeshua to get as close to Him as you can, preparing through a season of fastings and prayers for the things about to take place.  There is no need to fear if we are prepared spiritually, mentally and physically.  Walk in His Shalom, not in fear.  Put your eyes on Him and not on the things that are about to take place all around you.  He will take care of His own.

However, there are ominous events about to happen on this September involving the United Nations and the dividing of the land of Israel.  This is not good; the Lord is very angry because that is His land, and the city of Jerusalem is His City; The City of God.  Keep your eyes on the United Nations Building and New York City.  The recent earthquake that rocked New York and Washington damaging several monuments in Washington DC, and Hurricane Irene that hit the New York and New England areas was just a warning shot across the bow from Papa. 

Things that have survived hundred of years, yeah even things that survived thousands of years are about to be destroyed.  Everything that does not belong to the Father, nothing that He has not built will be plucked up, thrown down and destroyed.  He is about to do a quick, marvelous work through His endtime remnant, those that are His hidden ones, the illuminated ones that will rise in power and glory.  There will be no more delay.  D-Day is coming; behold, the Son of the Creator comes.

check out Augusto Perez's audio files.   He summarizes everything you should know:

Start with his most current; the time of this posting:
Warning for the rest of 2011 and a signal to the end of days...  a report published on CNN iReport, a CNN site that allows users to post.  http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-640370 
This report explains how comet Elenin alignments have possibly caused many significant earthquakes in the last couple years, how it's getting MUCH closer to  this fall with several alignments, then the earth pathing through its tail of debris.  Events all occurs right on Jewish feast days signalling signs in the heavens as promised in the bible and possibly the beginning of greater catastrophic events (in the next few years) and the signalling of the end of days (not necessarily to be confused with the second coming of Jesus "bodily" but more so spiritually).   More to be added soon. 

Check out pages 4 thru 7 of the 101 Newsletter for an interesting synopsis of prophecy for our times:

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...

From SpiritDaily.com,  PDT Signs strongly agrees:


In the years since the French Revolution, there have been numerous predictions of the Second Coming, or at least some kind of major manifestation of Christ. Such speculation increased with an apparition of the Blessed Mother at LaSalette, France, in 1846, then in the wake of the famous Fatima secrets, and then again in 1948 with the establishment of Israel -- which many see as fulfilling a major requirement for apocalyptic events.

During the past twenty years, that momentum has reached a crescendo, in large part because of the occurrence of another major apparition, Medjugorje in Bosnia-Hercegovina, where, like LaSalette and Fatima, secret prophecies allegedly have been granted.

The Medjugorje visionaries have never said that the secrets contain a prediction of the Second Coming, and in fact one, Vicka Ivankovic Mijatovic, says that while containing predictions of very serious coming events, the nine confidential prophecies she has been given do not specifically address the anti-christ, the Second Coming, or the end of the world (which the Catechism teaches will follow the Final Coming).

But elsewhere there have been a flurry of just such claims, including those of St. Faustina Kowalska -- who in 1935 wrote that she had heard Christ tell her, "'You will prepare the world for My final coming'" and in 1936 allegedly heard the Blessed Mother say, "Oh, how pleasing to God is the soul that follows faithfully the inspirations of His grace! I gave the Savior to the world; as for you, you have to speak to the world about His great mercy and prepare the world for the Second Coming of Him Who will come, not as a merciful Savior, but as a just Judge."

In 1938 Faustina added a message from Jesus, writing in her diary that "as I was praying for Poland, I heard the words: 'I bear a special love for Poland, and if she will be obedient to My will, I will exalt her in might and holiness. From her will come forth the spark that will prepare the world for My final coming.'"

The Coming of Jesus also has been mentioned at Church-approved sites in Kibeho, Rwanda; Betania, Venezuela; and San Nicolas, Argentina, as well as a flurry of revelations that have never been granted Church sanction. The same is true in general Christian circles, where evangelicals, Pentecostals, Baptists, and nondenominationalists have loudly declared their belief that Christ is ready to return -- citing developments in Israel, which they watch like an augury.

The term "second coming" is used in what we have reported as the "1990 prophecy," an anonymous revelation that thus far has shown striking accuracy. Said this reputed revelation: "I will come not as a man of flesh, but like My mother, who already nurses Me and holds Me in her arms, as a light and power. I will manifest Myself in a series of supernatural events similar to the apparitions but much more powerful. In other words, My second coming will be different than My first, and like My first, it will be spectacular to many but also unknown initially to many, or disbelieved. Yet truly I tell you, the arrogance of the world will have been broken, and so many more than normal will believe. I will come in towering light. My mother held me in her arms at Medjugorje, as an infant. I will come as she has come, in light."

Perhaps never before in history -- at least not since the Middle Ages -- has there been such a surge in prophecy. In medieval times the prophecy ended up more a portent of chastisement than final events, coming in the midst of bubonic plague, which devastated a third of Europe.

Is the same true now? Are the prophecies more a foretelling of chastisement (which is mentioned at Medjugorje) -- or of something more cosmic?

The question arises again because of a recent interview with the seer from Betania, Maria Esperanza, who says that at the least the world should prepare for a major manifestation. She has referred to a coming period that will be a "new dawn of Jesus" and has said that "His coming is near." In more recent interviews she has expended on this theme and describes visions in which she has seen Jesus appear in many places from day to day in a way that brings to mind the way Jesus appeared during the forty days following the Resurrection. Perhaps significantly, "Betania" means "Bethany."

In her visions, the Venezuelan seer describes Christ as appearing to many individuals in what seem like manifestations.

"It will be very different than what people think," she says in The Bridge to Heaven. "He’s going to come in silence. People will realize He is among us little by little. His first presentation will be like this, because in those days an innocent person whom He loves a lot will die, an innocent person. This will shock the world, will move the world. Many people will believe. He will disappear for some days and appear again. He will multiply Himself, to assist everyone, in their homes, because this will be a definite thing. He will come and knock on every door. And then people will realize it is truly Him."

The question arises as to whether Esperanza -- whose site of apparitions was formally approved by the local bishop in 1987 -- is, like St. Faustina, making reference to the Pope when she mentions "a person whom He loves a lot." Many have taken the "spark" mentioned by Faustina as coming from Poland to be John Paul II -- who never has publicly foreseen the Second Coming himself but who has referred to our times as apocalyptic in the sense of the Church versus the anti-Church and good versus evil.

Esperanza does not describe it as a "final coming," but makes clear that major events and transformations are on the way and that the appearance of Jesus, however it is termed, will be preceded by major events.

Second Coming? Final Coming? A manifestation? Clearly, however we term it, and however it does or does not meet our preconceptions, something major, something historic, and something unusual, is ready to occur, in all likelihood within the lifetimes of many reading this.



Ned Dougherty


Ned Dougherty, a Catholic famous for a near-death experience during which he was given prophecies (including one that foretold terrorist attacks in Washington and New York), has issued a stark warning for the coming period of military action. We submit it for your discernment. Like any other such prediction, it should be considered and then prayed about, not become a center of any obsession. With prayer -- and Christ -- there is always more light and hope than darkness.

But we are in a period of potentially prophetic times, and heeding Scripture, we will consider certain prophecies in the coming days, emphasizing that such predictions seem to involve scenarios of what would happen if the world continued in the state it was in at the moment of the prophecy. As another person with a similar experience once said, "During my experience, I was also shown events that are likely to happen in the near future, but was made to understand that nothing is absolutely fixed and that everything depends on how we choose to use our own free will, that even those events that are already predestined can be changed or modified by a change in our own way of relating to them. A successful prophecy is one that changes enough people to sufficiently prevent the prophecy from actually happening."

Nonetheless, the prophecies are of a serious nature. Dougherty, who now lives in Hazelton, Pennsylvania, as well as Long Island, once owned Club Marakesh, the hottest nightclub in the New York City suburb of the Hamptons (home to the super-rich) and a second nightspot in West Palm Beach, living the glamorous life of limos, models, celebrities, seaplanes, and Dom Perignon champagne [see original story].

All that changed on July 2, 1984, when something happened to him like a heart attack or a stroke and Dougherty found himself collapsing on the sidewalk outside his club.

According to Ned, he felt like he was "floating, suspended in a black, pit." As he was suspended in air he saw a "kaleidoscopic review" of his lifestyle and possessions, which then vaporized. Suddenly a mass of energy formed over him in the sky and shaped itself into a cylinder funneling upwards. He was drawn into another realm -- a realm in which he saw deceased loved ones, a realm in which he was enveloped by the Light of God.

It was during this experience -- which has transformed his life (he is now a daily communicant) -- that Dougherty asserts he encountered a Lady in light who stood next to a large globe of the earth and began to speak to him about the future of the world. Later, he believes he was spoken to by the Archangel Michael.

Referring to a book he wrote about the experience and a chapter on what he calls "future visions," Dougherty, in an e-mail this week to those who have followed his reputed revelations, states: "Many of you who have already read Fast Lane to Heaven know that we are now facing events more terrible than we ever expected to see in our lifetimes. Many of you have been returning to the book to read the 'future visions' recognizing that today's current events are all contained in the book. Following the near-death experience in which I was shown these future visions in 1984, even I thought that the world would never be reduced to the loss of spirituality and level of insanity in which we find ourselves today while at the brink of war.

"I was shown a vision of a large plateau in the Middle East. The plateau was surrounded by a dusty, dry, and barren region that seemed to be deserted and devoid of any life. I was told that future events at this location in the Middle East would start a chain reaction of man-made catastrophic events, first in the Middle East, then in Africa and Europe, followed by events in Russia and China. We are now at that point where it appears that mankind will cause a chain reaction of catastrophic events resulting in incredible devastation.

"As a human being and an American, I find myself conflicted with my true spiritual nature. I want to support our country, our president, and our troops who are now clearly in harm's way, but in my essence I am a spiritual being and know that violence will never solve the problems of the world.

"I find myself most conflicted by the Archangel Michael's Message (pages 172-174) which is clearly a warning to the people of the United States of America. We want to believe that the United States is doing 'the right thing' and that President Bush is truly acting by divine inspiration with a clear mandate in the course in which he leads us. But I have my doubts because of what I have been shown will happen if the prosecution of this war results in tremendous death and destruction.

"The Lady of Light told me that none of these future events need take place if mankind began to recognize and work with God's plan. The way to understand and work with God's plan is through prayer and meditation; through prayer to call out to God, and through meditation to hear His message.

"I was told that the world could be saved, not by its leaders, but by prayer groups throughout the world. I was told that the prayers of twenty could save a nation from war. I was told that the fate of mankind rested on our ability, individually and collectively, to change the direction of mankind in accordance with God's plan.

"So what can we do?

"Very simply, we can pray. We can ask ourselves what Jesus would do. Perhaps we can throw our hands up in prayer and beg for His return. Perhaps He will choose this moment in eternity to return and stop the insanity. Now that's something to pray for!

"From page 258: 'The future of the world is in our hands. The right choice is obvious. If each and every individual aspires to lead a life of love of God, self and neighbor, collectively mankind has the ability to determine the future of the world and to choose our destiny as a civilization. Individually we have the responsibility to do our part to achieve a future for mankind that is in accordance with God's plan. It is not for us to question whether or not God will allow cataclysmic events to devastate humanity. If the future of the world is doomed, it is of our own making. It must be a determination for us, individually and collectively, to change the course of events. God is making Himself available to us through His Holy Spirit  to give us the courage, strength and wisdom to change the course of future events for the betterment of mankind.'

Dougherty ends his latest missive: "PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!"

Whatever else we may agree or disagree with in such experiences and such prophecies, we can only second that motion.


A while back we carried the account of a New York man who had what researchers refer to as "near-death" experiences. Simply put, he "died" and -- like so many others these days -- came back to tell about it. The event was so profound that, although it took some time, it set him on the path from owning a large nightclub in New York's most lavish suburb to a simpler life today as a daily Catholic churchgoer.
We were interested in that account [see previous story] because during his alleged experience he was shown future events and among them were the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington. We can't vouch for every such experience. Like apparitions, they must be discerned. But they are interesting and in many ways similar to reputed prophecies from the Virgin Mary. Recent studies in Holland indicate that at least seven million people have had similar experiences, and a good number come back with what they believe are glimpses of the future -- and warnings.
How many are real? How many are good? How many can we take seriously?

There is for example Dr. George Ritchie, who "died" of pneumonia and claims to have encountered Jesus. "He opened a corridor through time which showed me increasing natural disasters coming upon this earth," claimed Dr. Ritchie. "There were more and more hurricanes and floods occurring over different areas of our planet. The earthquakes and volcanoes were increasing. We were becoming more and more selfish and self-righteous. Families were splitting, governments were breaking apart because people were thinking only of themselves. I saw armies marching on the United States from the south and explosions occurring over the entire world that were of a magnitude beyond my capacity to imagine. I realized if they continued, human life as we have known it could not continue to exist. Suddenly this corridor was closed off and a second corridor started to open through time. At the beginning they appeared very similar but the further the second one unfolded, the more different it became. The planet grew more peaceful. Humanity and nature both were better. Humanity was not as critical of themselves or others. They were not as destructive of nature and they were beginning to understand what love is. The Lord sent the mental message to me, 'It is left to humanity which direction he shall choose. I came to this planet to show you through the life I led how to love. Without OUR FATHER you can do nothing, neither could I. I showed you this. You have 45 years.'"
Ritchie's experience occurred in 1942, and indeed it was 45 years later -- in the later 1980s -- that the current trend toward enhanced natural disasters seems to have gained its current momentum.

We heard the same from Sondra Abrahams, a devoutly Catholic Louisiana woman who "died" of an allergic reaction in 1970. She says Jesus showed her a crisis with abortion (three years before Roe versus Wade) and also what she once described as "duplication" (but now knows as "cloning"). She was warned that these and other sins would lead mankind onto the road of purification.

 Similar too was a former atheist named Howard Storm of Ohio who "died" in Paris in 1985 and was shown that the U.S. was on the verge of events that over the course of 100 to 200 years would break it down to a far simpler and more natural state because of its current waywardness. (The former atheist, who says a nun's prayers saved him, is now a minister!)

Many are those who see natural disasters. "I have seen the destruction earthquakes create," claims Elaine Durham, "Just watch the Pacific Rim. The Pacific Rim is really going to take a beating. I had knowledge of icebergs breaking up and moving into warmer waters. The melting of them raised the water table."

We don't know what to make of specific prophecies. There are those who foresee great quakes not only on the Pacific rim, but on the East Coast -- in surprising places. There are those who see a great geomagnetic change in the earth, including a switch in its very poles. There are those who see a complete breakdown in our infrastructure. This is not "doomsday." It is not the end of the world. It is what they describe as a purification, and one that may still be lessened with conversion.
"The vision of the future I received during my near-death experience was one of tremendous upheaval in the world as a result of our general ignorance of the ‘true' reality," claims another. Reinee Pasarow, who had her alleged experience in 1967, when she was only 16. "I was informed that mankind was breaking the laws of the universe and as a result of this would suffer. This suffering was not due to the vengeance of an indignant God but rather like the pain one might suffer as a result of arrogantly defying the law of gravity."

From this, they claim, mankind will emerge humbler and more peaceful, as well as holier than the arrogance we see today. There were visions of severe droughts, and volcanic eruptions in places like Hawaii -- eruptions that would be a reflection of social upheaval. There would be freak storms (which we have already seen in abundance). "The weather is going to be crazy," said one prophecy published in 1984, but after a long dark "hour" -- after a long series of tumultuous events -- humanity would be born anew and humbled.
Such prophecies, at least as they relate to climate and wars, are similar to apparitions of the Virgin Mary in places such as Nicaragua, Argentina, Venezuela, Japan, and the United States which have foreseen natural and military upheaval -- followed by the glory of Jesus. Does that mean the "second coming"? There have been both near-death experiencers and Marian apparitions that have claimed this, and we'll be exploring it shortly. One has to be cautious. There is much deception in our time, as we have constantly warned. Often, near-death experiences get tangled in the same problems we have seen with certain apparitions.
But such experiences have been recorded since Pope Gregory the Great (who kept a personal file) and there is also such a thing as legitimate prophecy, which is as old as the Old Testament.

Quakes? An asteroid scare? Melting icebergs?
"I was also shown events that are likely to happen in the near future, but was made to understand that nothing is absolutely fixed and that everything depends on how we choose to use our own free will, that even those events that are already predestined can be changed or modified by our change in our own way of relating to them," said another who "died" and came back with a vision.

For a May 2002 update see:
and also from Spirit Daily:
Ned Dougherty clinically "died" from respiratory or cardiac arrest on July 2, 1984, and during that episode allegedly had an experience with the hereafter and a heavenly entity he identifies as theVirgin Mary His prophecies also correctly foresaw episodes in his life. Dougherty had predicted that "a major terrorist attack may befall New York City or Washington, D.C., severely impacting the way we live in the United States" -- a prediction that has been fulfilled in only too obvious a fashion.It's called The Fast Lane to Heaven, and it's about Ned Dougherty, n July 2, 1984, something happened to him, something like a heart attack or a stroke, According to Dougherty (and remember, this is in a book that came out in March 2001), the "Lady of Light" -- who he would later identify as the Virgin Mary -- showed him events that would first happen in the Middle East and
then Italy. "I was told that these events would be acts of 'aggression,terrorism, and war, performed by self-proclaimed radical groups, supposedly in the name of God," he wrote before the events of September 11.  Dougherty flatly predicted that "terrorist attacks and acts of war and aggression
will continue to plague the Middle East, Africa, and Europe." He was shown a future in which violence would spread from the Middle East to Europe, and then to the former Soviet Union and to the Far East -- particularly China.
The greatest threat, he was shown, would come from China and a "two
hundred million army" (see Revelation 9:16). "The Lady of Light specifically told me, 'Pray for the conversion of China,'" claims Dougherty. "'The conversion of China to God is necessary for the salvation of the world.'"
But most remarkable was what Dougherty had been told about the U.S. "While acts of terrorism and war and political unrest plague the Eastern Hemisphere, the Western Hemisphere will be spared the worst of the terrorism," he was told. "However, a major terrorist attack may befall New York City or Washington, D.C., severely impacting the way we live in the United States."
   Remember, this was recorded in a book released six months before the attack on the Pentagon and World Trade Center! Dougherty sees aggression in the Middle East, China, Africa, and Europe, while the Western Hemisphere encounters natural disasters. He says that without prayer and a strong return to a pro-life society, there will be destruction in New York by natural disasters, which he sees for the entire country and both coasts. "Freakish, erratic, and unseasonable weather patterns will create severe tidal flooding and erosion," Dougherty asserts in Fast Lane to Heaven. "There will be devastating tornadoes and wind storms; severe winter conditions with record snowfalls and freezing temperatures; record summer heat waves with severe drought; and an increase in destructive storms and hurricanes."  Dougherty is not talking about mere "signs of the times." He says he was shown visions of massive events and claims that he was shown that the banking and financial institutions could collapse "due in large part to the failure of the insurance companies as a result of natural disasters."  (Matching Theresa Neuman) If there is not a radical conversion -- and a great proliferation of prayer groups -- he foresees events that will affect both coasts. He says he was shown terrific ocean surges in Manhattan, on Long Island, and in Florida (at a bridge he believes is that span between the mainland and Key Biscayne). He believes that in the future coastal and other low-lying or unstable areas will diminish in population while mountainous and other "stable" areas become more desirable. It's his further belief that the "critical period of transition" will be completed prior to the year 2034. This struck home because there has long been the speculation that while events may occur throughout this century, major ones will be seen between now and 2040 based on the longevity of the seers at Medjugorje  (who are currently in their thirties and who say that they will live to see the secrets). Dougherty believes that spiritually-minded people "will be drawn together to create self-supporting and self-sustaining communities" and will serve as the architect's for God's plan -- which is at great odds with a world of abortion, immorality, and materialism. As for the Vatican, "I believe that a similar terrorist attack will occur in the future in Italy, specifically in Rome. I believe that a fanatical religious group on a much larger scale will conduct the attack although it will be directed against one world leader. The focus of the attack will be upon the Vatican and the papacy."

Businessman who purchased the land where Sister Neuzil resided for many years, in a convent.
Among the messages that Sister Neuzil received while living there was that the convent and land would fall into the hands of those not of the faith but that at the end of the century it would be reclaimed by a Catholic. This prophecy proved true when the convent was shut down and the entire property sold to a 'moonie'-type cult in the early 70's. Then in the late 90's Larry Young, a Catholic businessman bought the property. Now Young reports receiving an ominous message of the enemy in our midst ready to reign terror upon us.  This message was conveyed to www.spiritdaily.com shortly before the World Trade Center attack.

 @Spirit Daily
A couple months ago Larry Young, a businessman who has purchased Sylvan Springs in Indiana, site of the first apparition to Sister Mildred Mary Neuzil (of the "Our Lady of America" apparitions), told us of a "message" he himself had felt he received from the Virgin Mary. We don't carry every private revelation, but we believe the Spirit speaks to us all and we asked him to confirm the details because it had been accurate -- prescient -- and because he had told us of it just before the September 11 attack. He does not pretend to be a seer, but does have certain mystical experiences. His recollection, in more detail, presented for your discernment, along with two other letters:

 Hello Michael,
 Yes I was told about a war on our own soil...that was the message in May..."the soldiers are already here...this war will be fought on you own soil and many will die... this will be a war like no other...the
enemy is 'the evil one'... your children will be targets." There has never been a battle of this magnitude involving good versus evil in the history of humankind!
I was told this was an attempt to break the will of our people to resist evil's great push to bring about the total destruction and annihilation of Israel... if they strike fear into the hearts of the American public they hope to paralyze us into not defending Israel as the evil nations look to destroy her. That is the real target here... Israel. It is not grou ation that is working alone, but several groups and nations that are working quietly together to bring this about.  A very powerful message was delivered a week ago Monday by Our Lady:
 "Please. Follow the leader, Follow the leader, Follow The Leader!
 WHATEVER happens...Do Not Be Afraid! Do Not Be Afraid!  DO NOT BE AFRAID!"
She was very emphatic!!  She went on to say...
"Continue to Pray The Rosary as you have... more will be coming to pray with you. This will be a place of safety for all those who seek the promises of Our Lord.  Always remember, prayer is the only true peacemaker!" She then said, "Until all nations are united in prayer, there will be no true peace."(You could truly feel the passion in her, the Virgin Mary's
 (alleged) words...and she continues to say, "Please"  (Imagine how humbling that is.)  There are many more soldiers in our midst... these soldiers have devious plans to rain terror down upon our country... I feel they will be attacking our children in great numbers in the hopes of creating the greatest fear.
 Our Lady did say she was with our President... I think his address to the nation was testament to that!
 God will make good out of all of this... it is hard to reason, but these terrorist attacks, and the heinous acts which are still to come, may actually be the catalyst that brings about the salvation of the world. All people uniting in prayer and learning the true focus of their lives... giving glory to God!
 Larry Young
