EVERYONE from clergy to politicians have repeatedly said we must “follow the science”.
But have lockdowns, PCR testing, social distancing, masking, and “vaccination” actually been following the science? In this powerful documentary by Mark Mallett, you’ll hear renowned scientists explain how the path we’re on may not be “following the science” at all… but a path to unspeakable sorrows.
Learn the startling the truth as you watch Following the Science?, the culmination of hundreds of hours of research.

O Lord, Create in me the heart your servant David longed for. Place within me a desire for nothing but to do your will and to sing your praise. Grant me courage to be strong in times of trial, patience to listen to your voice, gentleness to care for the people you have given me to love, and humility to seek forgiveness when I am weakened by selfishness.Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoings but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. 1 Cor 13:4-8
AS extraordinary events unfold around the globe, it’s often “looking back” that we see most clearly. It’s very possible that a “word” put on my heart years ago is now unfolding in real time…
THE GREAT STORM
Over fifteen years ago, the words came to me as clear as the thunder storm that was rolling toward me on the horizon:
There is a Great Storm coming upon the earth like a hurricane.”
As I explained recently in Warp Speed, Shock and Awe, that word was followed shortly thereafter with another as I began to read the sixth chapter of the Book of Revelation:
This IS the Great Storm.
In other words, the “seals” that are broken open are a series of global events, allowed and even used by God, to rapidly bring the world to its knees. In light of recent events, I believe we may in fact be seeing the definitive opening of these seals in real time and in the most unexpected ways, as I’ll explain. St. Paul once wrote:
Our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect… For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. (1 Cor 13:9, 12)
Hindsight is sometimes the greatest teacher, as much as standing on a mountain and looking back gives the greatest perspective. With each passing day now, the veil seems to be lifting and the Book of Revelation taking on new meaning and perspective. The word Apocalypse, after all, means “unveiling”…
THE FIRST SEAL
I looked, and there was a white horse, and its rider had a bow. He was given a crown, and he rode forth victorious to further his victories. (6:1-2)
This Rider, according to Pius XII, is the Lord Himself.
He is Jesus Christ. The inspired evangelist [St. John] not only saw the devastation brought about by sin, war, hunger and death; he also saw, in the first place, the victory of Christ.—POPE PIUS XII, Address, November 15, 1946; footnote of The Navarre Bible, “Revelation”, p.70
As I have explained at Countdown to the Kingdom on our Timeline and in a webcast, the “time of mercy” that Jesus granted us after the apparitions in Fatima appears to fulfill this seal. Piux XII’s insight is a beautiful interpretation because it suggests that the following, painful seals are permitted by Divine Providence in order to draw the maximum number of souls into God’s mercy. Sometimes it is only suffering that awakens the stubborn human heart to the presence of God and the greater reality of eternal life (see Mercy in Chaos). Hence, the arrows the Rider releases are the power of the Holy Spirit to awaken souls before it’s too late:
The first seal being opened, [St. John] says that he saw a white horse, and a crowned horseman having a bow… He sent the Holy Spirit, whose words the preachers sent forth as arrows reaching to the human heart, that they might overcome unbelief. —St. Victorinus, Commentary on the Apocalypse, Ch. 6:1-2
When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” And out came another horse, bright red; its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that men should slay one another; and he was given a great sword. (Revelation 6:3-4)
The allusion here is fairly obvious: a global war. But what is not obvious is exactly how this sword is unsheathed. Perhaps this is similar to the “flaming sword” that was revealed in a vision to the children at Fatima, Portugal.
The angel with the flaming sword on the left of the Mother of God recalls similar images in the Book of Revelation. This represents the threat of judgment which looms over the world. Today the prospect that the world might be reduced to ashes by a sea of fire no longer seems pure fantasy: man himself, with his inventions, has forged the flaming sword. —Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (BENEDICT XVI), The Message of Fatima, vatican.va
But these inventions are no longer confined to missile silos. In fact, the world has awakened to a new kind of warfare that is biological. Over the past year, scientists around the globe, including a Nobel Prize winner, have stated that the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is a bioweapon that originated in a laboratory.  Now, a team of scientists are set to publish a paper claiming that “Chinese scientists created COVID-19 in a Wuhan lab, then tried to cover their tracks by reverse-engineering versions of the virus to make it look like it evolved naturally from bats.” Both scientists submitting the research are involved in the manufacturing of vaccines and so may have a conflict of interest. Nonetheless, their research only confirms what has been said from the very beginning.
While this seal does not exclude conventional warfare — in fact, nuclear war may eventually, God forbid, be its fallout — the second seal may in fact be initiated by the release of this virus into the global population. For what has followed over the past year is the beginning of what takes place in through next seals…
THE THIRD SEAL
When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I saw, and behold, a black horse, and its rider had a balance in his hand; and I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; but do not harm oil and wine!” (Rev 6:5-6)
Simply put, this is hyperinflation. Due to global lockdowns, supply chains have been damaged with true consequences only starting to be felt in the West. Many supplies, parts and items are increasingly hard to find, driving availability and prices of goods upward in some places.
Prices have risen sharply on everything from used cars and lumber to steel and food. The return of inflation is especially costly to low-income families, who are most likely to have been hit hardest by the pandemic. —May 27th, 2021, cnn.com
Inflationary pressures will develop very quickly. I don’t think there’s any shelter here. —Mark Zandi, Chief Economist of Moody’s Analytics, March 7th, 2021, cnbc.com
Fuel prices are beginning to rise as higher oil prices sit at the highest level in two years. The price of lumber has tripled in North America, putting home-building projects on hold or canceled; and real estate markets, pets and horses, vehicles, and many other goods have increased exponentially. Perhaps most alarming is that food prices are beginning to climb all over the world with no sign of reprieve, impacting most especially developing nations. 
…neglecting inflation leaves global economies sitting on a time bomb. —David Folkerts-Landau, Deutsche Bank’s chief economist, June 7th, 2021; cnbc.com
The Third Seal is arguably a global economic collapse.
When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” And I saw, and behold, a pale horse, and its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him; and they were given power over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth. (Rev 6:7-8)
The fruits of a global economic collapse are not hard to imagine, among them, civil unrest (the sword), food shortages (famine), and seemingly new outbreaks of disease (pestilence). If the coronavirus is a bioweapon that has already unleashed death on earth, the fourth seal appears to be its reprisal — but in a most unexpected way. “Hades”, writes Dr. Scott Hahn…
Personify the satanic forces that bring death and destruction into the world. —Ignatius Catholic Study Bible, New Testament footnote on 6:8, p. 500
The mainstream media has almost completely blacked out the fact that the COVID-19 “vaccines”, in Europe alone, have injured over 1.1 million and killed potentially over 12,100 according to recent statistics entered into the EudraVigilance database (while authorities deny any connection, of course). In the United States, 262,521 have been reported injured and over 5100 dead after receiving the injections. Studies have shown that these numbers reflect a fraction of the actual totals as most adverse reactions go under-reported. In fact, in this climate of fear-mongering and censorship with cult-like faith in vaccines, this Harvard study is no surprise:
Adverse events from drugs and vaccines are common, but underreported. Although 25% of ambulatory patients experience an adverse drug event, less than 0.3% of all adverse drug events and 1-13% of serious events are reported to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Likewise, fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported. —“Electronic Support for Public Health–Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (ESP:VAERS)”, December 1st, 2007- September d30th, 2010
However, the warning from scientists around the globe, most who are being censored, is that the experimental injections themselves are going to cause a massive wave of deaths themselves due to “immune priming” in “vaccinated” individuals. Just one example of many experts, Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, M.D., a renowned German microbiologist, has warned:
There is going to be an auto-attack… You are going to plant the seed of auto-immune reactions… The dear Lord did not want humans, not even [Dr.] Fauci, going around injecting foreign genes into the body… it’s horrifying, it’s horrifying. —The Highwire, December 17th, 2020
Here’s the point: they expect these deaths to occur, not immediately, but in the months or years ahead — as happened in animal trials of previous mRNA “vaccines” when they were exposed to a wild virus (or booster shots). Autoimmune brain diseases, neurodegenerative diseases at younger ages, hemorrhaging, blood clots, heart failure, lie on the horizon, according to many scientists who understand this experimental gene technology that is being called “vaccination”:
I mean, it’s just a nightmare. And I can see how it happens. I mean, basically the “vaccine” is so unbelievably unnatural and they have a single-minded goal, which is to get the body to produce those antibodies to the spike protein… they have done studies where they only expose the person to the spike protein, probably a rat — animal studies where they only expose them to the spike protein and they showed it was toxic in the brain and it was toxic in the blood vessels. So it’s causing immune reaction all by itself that is damaging to the tissues. —Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., senior research scientist at MIT; interview, mercola.com
Former Vice President and Chief Scientist for Allergy & Respiratory at Pfizer, who is decidedly “pro-vaccine” and describes himself as “not religious”, is likewise horrified by these “gene therapies” being injected into the global populace:
Biotechnology provides you with limitless ways, frankly, to injure or kill billions of people…. I’m very worried … that pathway will be used for mass depopulation, because I can’t think of any benign explanation… The eugenicists have got hold of the levers of power and this is a really artful way of getting you to line-up and receive some unspecified thing that will damage you. I have no idea what it will actually be, but it won’t be a vaccine because you don’t need one. And it won’t kill you on the end of the needle because you would spot that. It could be something that will produce normal pathology, it will be at various times between vaccination and the event, it will be plausibly deniable because there will be something else going on in the world at that time, in the context of which your demise, or that of your children will look normal… —interview, April 7th, 2021; lifesitenews.com
THE FIFTH SEAL
When he broke open the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slaughtered because of the witness they bore to the word of God. They cried out in a loud voice, “How long will it be, holy and true master, before you sit in judgment and avenge our blood on the inhabitants of the earth?” Each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to be patient a little while longer until the number was filled of their fellow servants and brothers who were going to be killed as they had been (Rev 6:9-11)
The aforementioned seals are the permissive will of God allowing a global revolution to spread across the earth in which the partisans of evil, namely the Freemasons, seek, according to Pope Leo XIII, to “overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced.”
In every way but one, the French Revolution had come off as planned. There remained but one great hurdle for the Illuminati, that being the Church, for the Church — and there is only one True Church — formed the very foundation of Western civilization. —Stephen, Mahowald, She Shall Crush Thy Head, MMR Publishing Company, p. 10
It is thus the Church that lies most especially in the crosshairs of the “Great Reset” whose architects see “COVID-19” and “climate change” as the catalysts for the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”:
A great revolution is waiting for us. The crisis doesn’t only make us free to imagine other models, another future, another world. It obliges us to do so. —Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, September 14th, 2009; unnwo.org; cf. The Guardian
…after all we have been through it isn’t enough just to go back to normal… Because history teaches us that events of this magnitude—wars, famines, plagues; events that affect the vast bulk of humanity, as this virus has—they do not just come and go. They are more often than not the trigger for an acceleration of social and economic change… —Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Conservative Party speech, October 6th, 2020; conservatives.com
The reality is the world will never be the same after the coronavirus. To argue now about the past only makes it harder to do what has to be done… Addressing the necessities of the moment must ultimately be coupled with a global collaborative vision and program… We need to develop new techniques and technologies for infection control and commensurate vaccines across large populations [and] safeguard the principles of the liberal world order… The world’s democracies need to defend and sustain their Enlightenment values… —Freemason Sir Henry Kissinger The Washington Post, April 3rd, 2020
The conditions that precipitated the French Revolution roused not only an uprising against the ruling elite, but against what was perceived to be a corrupt Church.  Today, the conditions for an uprising against the Catholic Church have never been so ripe. Soiled through apostasy, the infiltration of sexual abusers, the mishandling of native populations (such as residential schools in Canada), and the perception that the Church is “intolerant” is already generating a strong and often vile revolt against her divine authority.
Even now, in every conceivable form, power threatens to trample down faith. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Light of the World—The Pope, the Church, and the Signs of the Time—An Interview with Peter Seewald, P. 166My children, now persecution is underway, but you do not have to be afraid if you are in Christ, because you will lack nothing. The arrival of famine will be felt, yet whoever is with Jesus should remain calm. My children, pray that the churches would not be closed and that the food of eternal life would not be taken away from you. Pray for my favored sons (priests) and for those whom I have called for humanity’s salvation: you will recognize them by their faces of love. —Our Lady to Gisella Cardia, June 3rd, 2021; countdowntothekingdom.comDifficult days will come and many will drink the bitter cup of pain. You will be persecuted for your faith, but do not retreat. I love you and will always be by your side. Onward in defense of the truth. —Our Lady to Pedro Regis, June 5th, 2021; cf. countdowntothekingdom.comIt is no coincidence that you are are seeing all of the above unfolding at the same time, for they are part of the same Global Revolution. And all of this is racing humanity toward the “Eye of the Storm”… THE SIXTH & SEVENTH SEAL
When the Sixth Seal is broken, a Great Shaking occurs as the heavens are peeled back, and the judgment of God is somehow perceived in everyone’s soul, whether kings or generals, rich or poor. What did they see that caused them to cry out to the mountains and rocks:
Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; for the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand before it? (Rev 6:15-17)
If you go back one chapter in the Book of Revelation, you’ll find St. John’s description of this Lamb:
I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain… (Rev 5:6)
That is, it is Christ crucified.
Before I come as the just Judge, I am coming first as the King of Mercy. Before the Day of Justice arrives, there will be given to people a sign in the heavens of this sort: All light in the heavens will be extinguished, and there will be great darkness over the whole earth. Then the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky, and from the openings where the hands and the feet of the Savior were nailed will come forth great lights which will light up the earth for a period of time. This will take place shortly before the last day. —Jesus to St. Faustina, Diary of Divine Mercy, Diary, n. 83
The consciences of this beloved people must be violently shaken so that they may “put their house in order”… A great moment is approaching, a great day of light… it is the hour of decision for mankind. —Servant of God Maria Esperanza, Antichrist and the End Times, Fr. Joseph Iannuzzi, P. 37
Our Father’s intention is to save all His children from the mocking and ridicule of the pharisees of these apocalyptic times. —Our Lady to Maria, The Bridge to Heaven: Interviews with Maria Esperanza of Betania, Michael H. Brown, p. 43
Everyone feels as if they have entered the final Judgment. But it’s not — not yet. It’s a Warning at the threshold of the Day of the Lord… it’s the Eye of the Storm— a pause in the chaos; a cease of the destructive winds, and a flood of light in the midst of great darkness. It is an opportunity for individual souls to either choose God and follow His commandments—or to reject Him. Hence, after the Seventh Seal is broken, there is a reprieve:
…there was silence in heaven for about half an hour… (Rev 8:1)
But as God the Father revealed to American seer, Barbara Rose Centilli (whose messages are under diocesan evaluation), this Warning is not the end of the Storm, but the separation of the weeds from the wheat:
To overcome the tremendous effects of generations of sin, I must send the power to break through and transform the world. But this surge of power will be uncomfortable, even painful for some. This will cause the contrast between darkness and light to become even greater. —from the four volumes Seeing With the Eyes of the Soul, November 15th, 1996; as quoted in The Miracle of the Illumination of Conscience by Dr. Thomas W. Petrisko, p. 53
In recent months on Countdown to the Kingdom, we have heard Heaven repeatedly telling us that we should not put off to tomorrow what needs to be done today; that our conversion needs to happen now; that we need to take our spiritual lives seriously now… for we are hurtling toward the Eye of the Storm. I hear this as both a gift and a warning. We have entered The Time of Times, as I wrote some 12 years ago. Back then, when I penned those words, it was with the sense that the seals of Revelation were on the cusp of being broken. I ended that brief meditation with this Scripture:
Thus the word of the LOrd came to me: Son of man, what is this proverb that you have in the land of Israel: “The days drag on, and no vision ever comes to anything”? Say to them therefore: Thus says the Lord God: I will put an end to this proverb; they shall never quote it again in Israel. Rather, say to them: The days are at hand, and also the fulfillment of every vision. Whatever I speak is final, and it shall be done without further delay. In your days, rebellious house, whatever I speak I will bring about, says the Lord God… Son of man, listen to the house of Israel saying, “The vision he sees is a long way off; he prophesies of the distant future!” Say to them therefore: Thus says the Lord God: None of my words shall be delayed any longer; whatever I speak is final, and it shall be done, says the Lord God. (Ezekiel 12:21-28)
Maranatha… Come Lord Jesus, the Rider upon the White Horse!
A paper from South China’s University of Technology claims ‘the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.'(Feb. 16th, 2020; dailymail.co.uk) In early February 2020, Dr. Francis Boyle, who drafted the U.S. “Biological Weapons Act”, gave a detailed statement admitting that the 2019 Wuhan Coronavirus is an offensive Biological Warfare Weapon and that the World Health Organization (WHO) already knows about it.(cf. zerohedge.com) An Israeli biological warfare analyst said much the same.(Jan. 26th, 2020; washingtontimes.com) Dr. Peter Chumakov of the Engelhardt Institute of Molecular Biology and Russian Academy of Sciences claims that “while the Wuhan scientists’ goal in creating the coronavirus was not malicious—instead, they were trying to study the pathogenicity of the virus… They did absolutely crazy things… For example, inserts in the genome, which gave the virus the ability to infect human cells.”(zerohedge.com) Professor Luc Montagnier, 2008 Nobel Prize winner for Medicine and the man who discovered the HIV virus in 1983, claims that SARS-CoV-2 is a manipulated virus that was accidentally released from a laboratory in Wuhan, China.(cf. mercola.com) A new documentary, quoting several scientists, points toward COVID-19 as an engineered virus.(mercola.com) A team of Australian scientists has produced new evidence the novel coronavirus shows signs “of human intervention.”(lifesitenews.com; washingtontimes.com) Former head of the British intelligence agency M16, Sir Richard Dearlove, said he believes the COVID-19 virus was created in a lab and spread accidentally.(jpost.com) A joint British-Norwegian study alleges that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) is a “chimera” constructed in a Chinese lab.(Taiwannews.com) Professor Giuseppe Tritto, an internationally known expert in biotechnology and nanotechnology and president of the World Academy of Biomedical Sciences and Technologies (WABT) says that “It was genetically engineered in the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s P4 (high-containment) lab in a program supervised by the Chinese military.”(lifesitnews.com) Respected Chinese virologist Dr. Li-Meng Yan, who fled Hong Kong after exposing Bejing’s knowledge of the coronavirus well before reports of it emerged, stated that “the meat market in Wuhan is a smoke screen and this virus is not from nature… It comes from the lab in Wuhan.”(dailymail.co.uk ) And former CDC Director Robert Redfield also says COVID-19 ‘most likely’ came from Wuhan lab.(washingtonexaminer.com)
THE most remarkable thing about Our Lord Jesus is that He keeps nothing for Himself. He not only gives all glory to the Father, but then wills to share His glory with us to the extent that we become coheirs and copartners with Christ (cf. Eph 3:6).
Speaking of the Messiah, Isaiah writes:
I, the LORD, have called you for the victory of justice, I have grasped you by the hand; I formed you, and set you as a covenant of the people, a light for the nations, to open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from confinement, and from the dungeon, those who live in darkness. (Isaiah 42:6-8)
Jesus, in turn, shares this mission with the Church: to become a light to the nations, healing and deliverance to those imprisoned by their sin, and teachers of divine truth, without which, there is no justice. To undertake this work will cost us, as it cost Jesus. For unless the grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it cannot bear fruit. But then He also shares with the faithful His own inheritance, paid in blood. These are the seven promises He makes from His own lips:
To the victor I will give the right to eat from the tree of life that is in the garden of God. (Rev 2:7)
The victor shall not be harmed by the second death. (Rev 2:11)
To the victor I shall give some of the hidden manna; I shall also give a white amulet upon which is inscribed a new name… (Rev 2:17)
To the victor, who keeps to my ways until the end, I will give authority over the nations. (Rev 2:26)
The victor will thus be dressed in white, and I will never erase his name from the book of life but will acknowledge his name in the presence of my Father and of his angels. (Rev 3:5)
The victor I will make into a pillar in the temple of my God, and he will never leave it again. On him I will inscribe the name of my God and the name of the city of my God… (Rev 3:12)
I will give the victor the right to sit with me on my throne… (Rev 3:20)
As we see the Storm of persecution billowing on the horizon, we would do well to re-read this “Victor’s creed” when we feel a bit overwhelmed. Yet, as I’ve said before, it is only sheer grace that is going to carry the Church through this time as she shares in Our Lord’s Passion:
…she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection. —Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 677
So, if Jesus received an anointing before His Passion, like He did in the Gospel, so too, the Church will receive an anointing from God to prepare her for her own Passion. That anointing will likewise come through a “Mary”, but this time the Mother of God, who through her intercession and the Flame of Love from her heart, will help equip the saints to not only persevere, but march into enemy territory.  Filled with the Spirit, the faithful will be able to say, even in the face of their persecutors:
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom should I fear? The LORD is my life’s refuge; of whom should I be afraid? (Today’s Psalm)
For the sufferings of this present time are as nothing compared with the glory to be revealed for the Victors. 
…the Holy Spirit changes those in whom he comes to dwell and alters the whole pattern of their lives. With the Spirit within them it is quite natural for people who had been absorbed by the things of this world to become entirely otherworldly in their outlook, and for cowards to become men of great courage. —St. Cyril of Alexandria, Magnificat, April, 2013, p. 34
We are given reason to believe that, towards the end of time and perhaps sooner than we expect, God will raise up people filled with the Holy Spirit and imbued with the spirit of Mary. Through them Mary, Queen most powerful, will work great wonders in the world, destroying sin and setting up the kingdom of Jesus her Son upon the RUINS of the corrupt kingdom, which is this great earthly Babylon. (Rev.18:20) —St. Louis de Montfort, Treatise on True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin,n. 58-59
THE warning in my heart continues to grow about a coming deception, which may in fact be the one described in 2 Thess 2:11-13. What follows after the so-called “illumination” or “warning” is not only a brief but powerful period of evangelization, but a dark counter-evangelization that will, in many ways, be just as convincing. Part of the preparation for that deception is knowing beforehand that it is coming:
Indeed, the Lord GOD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants, the prophets… I have said all this to you to keep you from falling away. They will put you out of the synagogues; indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God. And they will do this because they have not known the Father, nor me. But I have said these things to you, that when their hour comes you may remember that I told you of them. (Amos 3:7; John 16:1-4)
Satan not only knows what is coming, but has been planning for it for a long time. It is exposed in the language being used…
Behold, I am sending you like sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and simple as doves. (Matt 10:16)
Furthermore, this deception will be a sorrow that emerges also from within the Church, particularly when some clergy have abandoned the flock in one form or another:
I know that after my departure savage wolves will come among you, and they will not spare the flock… A hired man, who is not a shepherd and whose sheep are not his own, sees a wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away, and the wolf catches and scatters them. (Acts 20:29; John 10:12))
I had another vision of the great tribulation… It seems to me that a concession was demanded from the clergy that could not be granted. I saw many older priests, especially one, who wept bitterly. A few younger ones were also weeping… It was as if people were splitting into two camps. —Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774–1824); The Life and Revelations of Anne Catherine Emmerich; message from April 12th, 1820
The world is rapidly being divided into two camps, the comradeship of anti-Christ and the brotherhood of Christ. The lines between these two are being drawn. How long the battle will be we know not; whether swords will have to be unsheathed we know not; whether blood will have to be shed we know not; whether it will be an armed conflict we know not. But in a conflict between truth and darkness, truth cannot lose. —Bishop Fulton John Sheen, D.D. (1895-1979), source unknown
We have to remember that constantly, especially as our days continue to grow darker. Someone wrote recently: “Your prayerful reflections are inspiring, although unsettling.” The intended fruit is indeed to shake us from our complacency and routine mode of living and pay attention to the times we live in and to events which appear imminent. But, I pray above all, that you will read this writing in the broader context of God’s providence and care for us: that He loves us so much, He is preparing us, and granting us the means to draw into the refuge and safety of His Sacred Heart. In this way, we can become messengers of true hope.
VERY QUICKLY NOW
Three words came to me:
Very quickly now.
Events around the world are going to unfold very rapidly now. I saw three “orders” collapse one upon the other like dominoes:
The economy, then the social, then the political order.
In their place will rise a New World Order. Far from a conspiracy theory, it is the reality unfolding before us—one which the Vatican has been warning about for some time.
VOICE OF THE VATICAN
There is so much information flying around, some of it true, some of it exaggerated, some of it simply false. Once again, we must quiet our hearts through prayer, fix our eyes on Jesus, and listen to Him speak to us, especially from the rock, which is His Church.
The Vatican released an important document called Jesus Christ, The Bearer of the Water of Life. It’s primary function is to help us discern the difference between Christian and New Age spirituality. But it also serves as a prophetic warning… a warning which I feel the Lord asking me to repeat here:
There is coming a counterfeit spirituality after the Illumination.
God is sending them a deceiving power so that they may believe the lie, that all who have not believed the truth but have approved wrongdoing may be condemned. (2 Thess 2:11-13)
Understand… the Lord desires all to be saved. Jesus is not consumed with rage, but by the fires of His mercy which He desires to spend upon the most heinous of sinners. But those who refuse the door of Mercy which the Illumination or “warning” will be, must then pass through the door of his Justice.
Before I come as the Just Judge, I am coming first as the King of Mercy… I first open wide the door of My mercy. He who refuses to pass through the door of My mercy must pass through the door of My justice. —Diary of St. Faustina, n. 83, 1146
As our Lord Himself taught, He came not to condemn the world, but to offer us eternal life. Those who refuse to believe are already condemned and “the wrath of God remains upon” them (John 3:36).
THE MASK OF ANTICHRIST
While God is preparing us for the Illumination, we must be aware that it is also being anticipated by the powers of darkness. This is a centuries old preparation which began in its philosophical/political form in the “Enlightenment” period birthed in the 16th century. It could be summed up in two words: the “New Age”.
Perhaps you’ve noticed how similar New Age language is to that of Christian prophecy and mysticism in reference to coming times. We speak of a coming “era of peace.” The new agers speak of a coming “age of Aquarius”. We speak of a Rider on a White Horse; they speak of Perseus riding upon the white horse, Pegasus. We aim for a purified conscience; they aim for a “higher or altered state of consciousness.” Christians are called to be “born again” while new agers aim at being “rebirthed”. We speak about an era of unity in Christ, while they speak of an era of universal “oneness.” In fact, the prayer of Jesus was that, through unity, we would come to a state of perfection as a witness to the world:
…that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be in us… that they may be brought to perfection as one, that the world may know that you sent me, and that you loved them even as you loved me. (John 17:21-23)
Satan has promised a false “perfection” as well, primarily to those attempting to bring about this “new age” through the “hidden knowledge” of secret societies:
Among the ancient Greeks, ‘the mysteries’ were religious rites and ceremonies practiced by secret societies into which any one who so desired might be received. Those who were initiated into these mysteries became possessors of certain knowledge, which was not imparted to the uninitiated, and were called ‘the perfected.’ —Vines Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words, W.E. Vine, Merrill F. Unger, William White, Jr., p. 424
The economic, social, and political order as we know it is going to collapse. In its place will rise a “new order” founded on this “new spirituality” (which is actually rooted in those ancient “mysteries”— errant philosophies and paganism.) From the Vatican’s reflection on the New Age:
The harmony and understanding required for responsible governance is increasingly understood to be a global government, with a global ethical framework. —Jesus Christ, The Bearer of the Water of Life, n. 2.3.1, Pontifical Councils for Culture and Inter-religious Dialogue (my italics)
As I wrote in The Great Vacuum, this “global government’ will respond not only to people’s cry for order among the chaos, but also to their spiritual cry. The ultimate goal of the dragon, and his puppet the Antichrist, is to lead mankind to worshiping him (Rev 13:4, 8 ):
[the] New Age shares with a number of internationally influential groups, the goal of superseding or transcending particular religions in order to create space for a universal religion which could unite humanity. Closely related to this is a very concerted effort on the part of many institutions to invent a Global Ethic. —Jesus Christ, The Bearer of the Water of Life, n. 2.5 , Pontifical Councils for Culture and Inter-religious Dialogue
This “Global Ethic” will attempt to blend cultural, political, and economical realities into one framework with a “universal religion” as its foundation. The heart of this spirituality is the “supreme Self”—me, myself, and I. As such, there really is no unity in mutual love but a False Unity based upon a false trinity: Tolerant, Humane, and Equal. We are all gods trying to reach a “universal consciousness”, a harmony with one another, Mother Earth, and the “vibrations” or “energy” of the cosmos. We will reach this transcendent reality through a “paradigm shift” and “altered state of consciousness.” Since there is no personal God, there is no Judge, and therefore, no sin.
Speaking to the “youth of the world”, Pope John Paul warned of this insidious spirituality which will lead not to freedom, but slavery—bondage to Antichrist and the dragon himself:
There is no need to be afraid to call the first agent of evil by his name: the Evil One. The strategy which he used and continues to use is that of not revealing himself, so that the evil implanted by him from the beginning may receive its development from man himself, from systems and from relationships between individuals, from classes and nations—so as also to become ever more a “structural” sin, ever less identifiable as “personal” sin. In other words, so that man may feel in a certain sense “freed” from sin but at the same time be ever more deeply immersed in it. —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Apostolic Letter, Dilecti Amici, To The Youth of the World, n. 15
It is clear, then, that Christianity and her indissoluble moral codes stand as a formidable obstacle to this counter spirituality.
The New Age which is dawning will be peopled by perfect, androgynous beings who are totally in command of the cosmic laws of nature. In this scenario, Christianity has to be eliminated and give way to a global religion and a new world order. —‚Jesus Christ, The Bearer of the Water of Life, n. 4, Pontifical Councils for Culture and Inter-religious Dialogue
The word androgynous means to be of “indeterminate sex”, that is, people who are bi-sexual, transsexual, or homosexual—or at least, embracing these “alternatives.” Thus, we see the satanic influence in the current trend to change and alter discrimination and marriage laws in the broader context of a New World Order… a new, and anti-Christian age.
THE LIES, SIGNS, AND WONDERS
I believe false prophets are going to arise, if not the “False Prophet” himself (Rev 13:11; 20:10), who will repudiate the nature of the Illumination, saying that it is not a “last call” for this age to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. Rather, it will be explained away in the most deceptive terms as a universal awakening of the “Christ within” and the world’s transition into the Age of Aquarius.
The New Age professes that, “we are gods, and we discover the unlimited power within us by peeling off layers of inauthenticity. The more this potential is recognised, the more it is realised… God has to be interiorised: from the Almighty God “out there” to God the dynamic, creative power within the very centre of all being: God as Spirit”. —Jesus Christ, The Bearer of the Water of Life, n. 3.5 , Pontifical Councils for Culture and Inter-religious Dialogue
So you see, the Illumination will be explained as a merely “cosmic incidence” to peel away the unreality we all live in. The false prophets will convince many that this was not an act of God, but a “universal consciousness” being awakened, a global paradigm shift creating an opportunity for all humanity to achieve their potential of being a god.
“Christ” is a title applied to someone who has arrived at a state of consciousness where he or she perceives him or herself to be divine and can thus claim to be a “universal Master”. —Jesus Christ, The Bearer of the Water of Life, n. 184.108.40.206 , Pontifical Councils for Culture and Inter-religious Dialogue
The false prophets may exhibit paranormal powers to back up these claims, such as the ability to move objects, make ghosts appear, and possess hidden knowledge of people’s lives. But it will not be human skills, rather, demonic manifestations. However, these will be recognized by those who are filled with the Spirit of Jesus and protected by His grace.
All will be encouraged and persuaded to embrace this New Age in a language which parallels love and goodness. Perhaps this will be the greatest deception of all: the overtures which speak of seeking the truth through silence, meditation, community, environmentalism and “logic”. It will be irresistible to many due in part to a lack of coercion. Christians will be permitted at first to ignore the state religion, but eventually without the benefits of the state (see Trumpets of Warning – Part V). “How can this be evil?” many will insist, ignoring God’s prophets, and seeking the security of the New Order. Indeed, the promise of peace to end the violence and chaos which will have already exploded prior to the Illumination will be welcomed by all. But it will be a false security, an illusory peace…
They have healed the wound of my people lightly saying, `Peace, peace,’ when there is no peace… I set watchmen over you, saying, `Give heed to the sound of the trumpet!’
That is, God will warn through the Time of the Two Witnesses (and now!) that this New Age counterfeit is not true repentance, but a false worship.
But they said, `We will not give heed.’ Therefore hear, O nations, and know, O congregation, what will happen to them. Hear, O earth; behold, I am bringing evil upon this people, the fruit of their devices, because they have not given heed to my words; and as for my law, they have rejected it. (Jeremiah 6:14, 17-19)
This counterfeit will be accompanied by other false signs and “wonders that lie ” (2 Thess 2:9) so as to deceive even the elect. Genuine supernatural phenomenon such as Marian apparitions and physical healings could be duplicated by counterfeits, sowing doubt among those who have believed in the genuine apparitions.
False prophets will also offer their own explanations for natural disasters and environmental crises, and even demonstrate their “powers” over nature. For example, technologies exist to alter the weather and even generate earthquakes, according to the U.S. Defense Department. Both China and Russia have been known to frequently alter their weather…
Alongside the new president was his mentor and now prime minister, Vladimir Putin, standing under bright sunshine… Twelve air force planes were [there] to ensure clear skies over Moscow with the use of cloud seeding technology. —Yahoo News, May 9th, 2008
…the power to close up the sky so that no rain can fall during the time of their prophesying. They also have power to turn water into blood and to afflict the earth with any plague as often as they wish. (Rev 11:6)
What God does supernaturally, false prophets will mimic technologically or demonically in order to deceive our perceptions and understandings. Recall how the signs and wonders of Moses were countered by Pharoah’s magicians…
Now hear me out for a moment. I am not certain that we can ignore the increasing manifestation of “UFO’s” and the deception that may accompany this. There is a belief within the New Age that the mythology of the gods and the human race was “birthed” from aliens…. aliens who will return at some point to bring us into an age of peace and harmony. One researcher estimates that there are six “sightings” somewhere in the world every hour. I agree with many other Christians that these are deceptions, but on a couple different levels. For one thing, in those who have been “abducted,” there is often left behind a “residue” of after-effects which are very similar to demonic possession, including at times the smell of sulfur.
While there appears to be a demonic element to UFO abductions, there is also evidence that governments possess far more advanced technology than many realize. The ability to produce “anti-gravity” effects has been proven, but never allowed to proliferate in the private sector: it could very well be that UFO’s are, in fact, not driven by little green men from Mars, but the product of highly advanced earth technology. This is precisely the conclusion of some who have been involved in high levels of the New Age, but have converted to Christianity. It is also the conclusion of some brilliant scientists and inventors in our time who have been silenced or eliminated when their discoveries and inventions have “gone too far.” Is a coordinated “UFO invasion” possible? Yes, it’s possible… but not from aliens, rather, powerful people wielding powerful tools of manipulation.
For those involved in satanism and black magic, it is an occultic rite to inform their victims, usually in veiled messages, of what they will be doing to them. For those with power and money, it may often be done through the media in very non-implicating ways. Have the proliferation of Hollywood UFO movies where “aliens” invade or attack or save the earth been a subtle way of projecting a message to the public under the guise of entertainment?
Several years ago, I was having a reoccurring dream in which the stars would begin to spin… and then change into fleets of strange, droning aircraft. Some time after, in an instant, I was given to understand what this dream was, and it frightened me (moreso because I thought it was crazy!) But now that I have come to understand that such technologies exist and have been witnessed by very credible people (who said the UFO’s they saw were not aliens, but definitely man-made), it makes sense in the bigger picture. But it is still disturbing given the conditioning that we continue to see in the media for the public to accept these flying saucers as visitors from space. Can you imagine the panic…? [Note: it was several years after writing that paragraph that I saw the first “drones” filling skies, which looked like some of those in my dream.]
Considering how widespread is the world’s fascination with UFO’s, this is a deception we should keep in mind, for it may play a significant role in the larger deception that will seduce mankind. If you see UFO’s appear over your cities some day, remember what was written here.
There is no question that the sexual abuse scandal in the Church is having and will have a tremendous impact on her credibility (read The Scandal). Given the context of all that is said here, how can we fail to see that this is also preparation for a Great Deception? That the apparent demise of the Church, and thus the muting of the voice of hope, creates the conditions for a new, but false hope?
As a result, the faith as such becomes unbelievable, and the Church can no longer present herself credibly as the herald of the Lord. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Light of the World, The Pope, the Church, and the Signs of the Times: A Conversation With Peter Seewald, p. 23-25
The ongoing scandal is not only a purification of the Church, but a preparation for persecution, which ultimately, will leave the Church smaller, but renewed. It may also be tilling the soil for a false religion and an anti-Church.
If there is to be a persecution, perhaps it will be then; then, perhaps, when we are all of us in all parts of Christendom so divided, and so reduced, so full of schism, so close upon heresy. When we have cast ourselves upon the world and depend for protection upon it, and have given up our independence and our strength, then he [Antichrist] will burst upon us in fury as far as God allows him. Then suddenly the Roman Empire may break up, and Antichrist appear as a persecutor, and the barbarous nations around break in. —Venerable John Henry Newman, Sermon IV: The Persecution of Antichrist
Those who have been responding to God’s grace during this present time will not have to fear. For as false prophets prepare the way for the False Messiah—the Beast or Antichrist—so too will the Spirit of God fall upon the remnant who will prepare the way for the coming of Jesus in His Spirit to live and reign in us and through the Holy Eucharist in a true era of peace and holiness.
False messiahs and false prophets will arise and will perform signs and wonders in order to mislead, if that were possible, the elect. Be watchful! I have told it all to you beforehand. (Mark 13:22-23)
Some might be tempted to think that “…the so-called new age movement was just a fad, that the new age movement is dead. Then I submit it’s because the major tenants of the new age have been so firmly engrained in our popular culture, that there is no longer any need for a movement, per se.” —Matthew Arnold, former new ager and Catholic convert
The global brain needs institutions with which to rule, in other words, a world government. “To deal with today’s problems New Age dreams of a spiritual aristocracy in the style of Plato’s Republic, run by secret societies…” —Jesus Christ, The Bearer of the Water of Life, n. 220.127.116.11 , Pontifical Councils for Culture and Inter-religious Dialogue

We are heading towards the end of time. Now the more we approach the end of time, the more quickly we proceed—this is what’s extraordinary. There is, as it were, a very significant acceleration in time; there’s an acceleration in time just as there’s an acceleration in speed. And we go faster and faster. We must be very attentive to this to understand what is happening in today’s world. —Fr. Marie-Dominique Philippe, O.P. The Catholic Church at the End of an Age, Ralph Martin, p. 15-16
THERE is an ungodly speed at which events are presently unfolding. In fact, it is revolutionary — and intentional.
SPEED… LIKE A HURRICANE
Years ago at the beginning of this writing apostolate, as I watched a storm rolling in one afternoon, the Lord impressed this “now word” upon my heart: “There is a Great Storm coming upon the earth like a hurricane.” Years later, I would read much the same words in approved prophetic revelations, such as those to Elizabeth Kindelmann:
The elect souls will have to fight the Prince of Darkness. It will be a frightening Storm — no, not a storm, but a hurricane devastating everything! He even wants to destroy the faith and confidence of the elect. I will always be beside you in the Storm that is now brewing. I am your mother. I can help you and I want to! —from the approved revelations of Our Lady to Elizabeth Kindelmann (1913-1985), The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary: The Spiritual Diary (Kindle Locations 2994-2997); approved by Cardinal Péter Erdö, primate of Hungary
It wasn’t many days after that prairie storm that I felt led to read Revelation Chapter 6. Interiorly, I heard the words: “This IS the Great Storm.” I began to read the “seals” that Jesus would open one by one, which I have graphically illustrated now on a Timeline. They speak of peace being taken from the world (war), hyperinflation (economic collapse), civil collapse (from violence, plague, food shortages), persecution… all ramping up until we reach the “Eye of the Storm” — the sixth seal, which is an “illumination of conscience” warning every soul alive that there is no future without God. While such upheavals have happened over the centuries to one degree or another, but with increasing intensity — much like a spiral tightens as it reaches its smallest rotation — I believe that we may literally see these seals unfold like dominoes, just as St. John saw them in his vision. Every one of them is not only in place, but literally on the verge.
Hence, there is another sign within these signs: the closer we get to the Eye of the Storm, the center of this spiritual spiral, the faster the winds, ie. events are unfolding. But it is man, not God, who is stirring this revolution…
This is, for the most part, a man-made storm: a global revolution long fomented by that organization the popes identified as the greatest threat to both the Church and humanity: the Freemasons. Their motto — Ordo ab chaos (Order out of chaos) — suggests that they will utilize whatever tools at their disposal to bring about their aim: “namely,” said Pope Leo XIII, “the utter overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced, and the substitution of a new state of things in accordance with their ideas, of which the foundations and laws shall be drawn from mere naturalism.” In the words of Freemason and philosopher, Voltaire:
…when conditions are right, a reign will spread across the whole earth to wipe out all Christians, and then establish a universal brotherhood without marriage, family, property, law or God. —Francois-Marie Arouet de Voltaire, Stephen Mahowald, She Shall Crush Thy Head (Kindle Edition)
According to leading globalists, the right time for this revolution is now:
This is the crisis of my lifetime. Even before the pandemic hit, I realized that we were in a revolutionary moment where what would be impossible or even inconceivable in normal times had become not only possible, but probably absolutely necessary… we must find a way to cooperate on fighting climate change and the novel coronavirus. —George Soros, May 13th, 2020; independent.co.uk.
Without swift and immediate action, at an unprecedented pace and scale, we will miss the window of opportunity to ‘reset’ for… a more sustainable and inclusive future. In other words, the global pandemic is a wake-up call we cannot ignore… With the urgency that now exists around avoiding irreversible damage to our planet, we must put ourselves on what can only be described as a war footing. —Prince Charles, dailymail.com, September 20th, 2020
As I explained in The Case Against Gates, not only COVID-19 but “global warming” is being used to create the illusion of an imminent existential crisis justifying swift, rapid, and unprecedented measures in the shortest time frame possible.
We need nothing short of a paradigm shift, one that inspires action at revolutionary levels and pace. We simply cannot waste anymore time. —Prince Charles, cf. The Rise of the Antichurch, 24:36
Because history teaches us that events of this magnitude—wars, famines, plagues; events that affect the vast bulk of humanity, as this virus has—they do not just come and go. They are more often than not the trigger for an acceleration of social and economic change… —Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Conservative Party speech, October 6th, 2020; conservatives.com
But the pretext for these changes, the urgency, is not built upon solid science, but often falsified data,  Marxist ideology,  and enforced by one of the most massive fear-mongering and propaganda campaigns the world has ever known. Perhaps now we can better understand what the “flood” is that pours out of Satan’s mouth to control all, especially the Church: disinformation.
The serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, to sweep her away with the flood. (Revelation 12:15)
I think that the river is easily interpreted: these are the currents that dominate all and wish to make faith in the Church disappear, the Church that seems no longer to have a place in the face of the force of these currents that impose themselves as the only rationality, as the only way to live. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Meditation at Special Assembly for the Middle East of the Synod of Bishops, October 11th, 2010; vatican.va
It is psychological warfare — a kind of mental and emotional “shock and awe.” The American “Operation Warp Speed” and its global counterparts is not named as such by coincidence; this is about overwhelming the public with a campaign to quickly and efficiently corral them, and the entire world, into a medical dictatorship; to ultimately expunge from the world the “excess population” and “reset” nature and the entire order of things.
Thus, the “seals” of Revelation indicate to what measures these secular messianists will go in order to secure their revolution against God. The fact that it is the “lamb” (ie. Christ) who opens the seals indicates the permissive will of God allowing man to reap what he has sown.
SHOCK AND AWE
The ungodly speed of what is taking place whilst turning science on its head, has shaken many, especially in the fields of medicine and immunology.
The post-Covid pseudo-medical order has not only destroyed the medical paradigm I faithfully practised as a medical doctor last year… it has inverted it. I do not recognize the government apocalypse in my medical reality. The breath-taking speed and ruthless efficiency with which the media-industrial complex have co-opted our medical wisdom, democracy and government to usher in this new medical order is a revolutionary act. —an anonymous U.K. physician known as “The Covid Physician”
It is not the Lord hurtling us toward the Eye of the Storm, it is man himself, deluded by utopian dreams, and unchallenged by clergy who are sleepwalking into a nightmare. Just as labour pains increase in frequency and pain, so too, the present labor pains are speeding up as the drums of war, economic collapse, social discord, and persecution are all within view. As I said in my recent webcast on The Rise of the Antichurch, it is startling how few in the Church see this, how many are lacking in discernment. Ironically, many in the secular realm seem to grasp far better the neo-Communist revolution taking place, such as this French collective of doctors:
Today we are shocked. A simplistic and infantilizing official discourse is hammered in all directions, driving our contemporaries to a scandalously binary choice: to be for, and to side with the camp of good docile citizens, or to be against and to see themselves singled out, considered at best selfish, irresponsible, at worst as “dangerous conspirators”. —Le Collectif Reinfocovid, (Google translation)
The concept of “shock and awe” is actually a doctrine that was developed specifically for application by the US military by the National Defense University of the United States. Ironically, it is the military carrying out “Operation Warp Speed.” This concept of “rapid dominance” was developed in order to…
…affect the will, perception, and understanding of the adversary… through imposing… this overwhelming level of Shock and Awe against an adversary on an immediate or sufficiently timely basis to paralyze its will to carry on … [to] seize control of the environment and paralyze or so overload an adversary’s perceptions and understanding of events that the enemy would be incapable of resistance at the tactical and strategic levels… Clearly, deception, confusion, misinformation, and disinformation, perhaps in massive amounts, must be employed. —Harlan K. Ullman and James P. Wade, Shock And Awe: Achieving Rapid Dominance (National Defense University, 1996), XXIV-XXV
Notably, the authors saw this doctrine as carrying “revolutionary potential.”
The level of propaganda today to coerce and force the public into receiving unapproved, experimental gene therapies (“vaccines”) for a virus with a global survival rate of 99.5% is beyond anything we’ve ever seen. The mantra of “safe and effective”, pounded into the public psyche hour after hour on every form of media whilst destructive measures continue to dismantle democracy, is a campaign of “shock and awe” beyond precedent. Meanwhile, the vaccine manufacturers, far from charities, are raking in billions in profits…
THE GREAT MERCHANTS OF THE EARTH
…your merchants were the great men of the earth, all nations were led astray by your sorcery. (Rev 18:23)
The Greek word for “sorcery” is φαρμακείᾳ (pharmakeia) — “the use of medicine, drugs or spells.”
This evokes the medical symbol of the Caduceus. Still used by many medical organizations today, it was a symbol employed by both the Nazis’ medical personnel and incorporated by the Freemasons. It is drawn in part from the Greek god Hermes, who carried the staff or “wand” with “wings of speed.” He “was patron of commerce and traders as well as thieves, liars, and gamblers”, while under the name Mercury, he was considered the “god of the merchant” by the Romans.
As god of the high-road and the market-place, Hermes was perhaps above all else the patron of commerce and the fat purse: as a corollary, he was the special protector of the traveling salesman. As spokesman for the gods, he not only brought peace on earth (occasionally even the peace of death), but his silver-tongued eloquence could always make the worse appear the better cause. —Stuart L. Tyson, “The Caduceus”, in The Scientific Monthly
Convincing billions of healthy people to believe they will kill others unless they receive, not one, but several doses of an experimental injection that will rake in astronomical profits is, without a doubt, the greatest sales job in the history of mankind. And with what “wings of speed” it — and the complete re-ordering of society — is taking place. Again, it is not necessarily Christians who are often sounding the loudest alarms:
This crisis is a revelation, an unveiling, an apocalypse. And after the apocalypse comes another world. We will never come back to the world as it was before, no matter what those who are still clinging to it may think. —The Reinfocovid doctor’s collective, April 7th, 2021; reinfocovid.fr
We’re standing in front of the gates of hell. I’m not religious, but I have to say that I’ve felt recently that the forces of rationality that I’ve lived by for all of my life are no longer working. And when you haven’t got rational decision-making, what have you got left? Faith. Whatever yours is, use it… —Dr. Mike Yeadon, former Vice President and Chief Scientist for Allergy & Respiratory at Pfizer, Youtube, 33:34
What is most essential is to simply recognize this sign of ungodly speed for what it is — and then remove yourself from these winds of chaos by deliberately making time for prayer and entering into the Great Stillness, who is God Himself.
Come and see the works of the LORD, who has done fearsome deeds on earth; who stops wars to the ends of the earth, breaks the bow, splinters the spear, and burns the shields with fire; “Be still and know that I am God!” (Psalm 46:9-11)
Second, it is essential that we learn to discern the propaganda and see it for what it is. As a former journalist, and now at this writing apostolate for over fifteen years, I can practically smell propaganda before opening a webpage: 99% of what you are hearing on the news right now, which is controlled by only five corporations, is propaganda of the highest order. Dr. Mark Crispin Miller, Phd., an expert on propaganda who is likewise warning of a mass deception, offers this sound advice:
Since winning propaganda floods the media (suffusing everything you read, watch, and/or listen to) and thereby floods the mind, the only way to break its spell, at first on you, is to deliberately rise out of it, pull high up and away from it, dry off, and squeeze that salty water from your eyes, and so start looking at it, and not through it, in order to attain that critical distance without which there is no telling truth from lie, or knowing anything about what we might quaintly call “reality.” Without that separation from the flood—the Latin criticus, whence “critic” comes,” derives from the Greek kritikos (“capable of judgment”), whose root is krinein, “to separate” (or “decide”)—it is impossible to keep your head above that rising flood-tide, which, if you don’t, will carry you away, along with everybody else. —”Masking Ourselves to Death: A stunning propaganda win for voodoo epidemiology”, September 4th, 2020; markcrispinmiller.com
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all men generously and without reproaching, and it will be given him. (James 1:5)
I might add that, the only hurry you ought to be in, is to leave a life of sin and accept the love and mercy of Christ, while there is still light…
God’s warning is over the world. Those who stay in the Lord have nothing to fear, but those who deny what comes from him do. Two-thirds of the world is lost and the other part must pray and make reparation for the Lord to take pity. The devil wants to have full domination over the earth. He wants to destroy. The earth is in great danger… At these moments all humanity is hanging by a thread. If the thread breaks, many will be those who do not reach salvation. That is why I call you to reflection. Hurry because time is running out; there will be no room for those who delay in coming!… The weapon that has the greatest influence on evil is to say the Rosary… A new time has begun. A new hope has born; attach yourselves to this hope. The very intense light of Christ is going to be reborn, for just as on Calvary, after Crucifixion and death, the Resurrection took place, the Church too will be born again through the strength of love. —Our Lady to Gladys Herminia Quiroga; approved on May 22nd, 2016 by Bishop Hector Sabatino Cardelli
“Eight popes in seventeen official documents condemned it… over two hundred Papal condemnations issued by the Church either formally or informally… in less than three hundred years.” —Stephen, Mahowald, She Shall Crush Thy Head, MMR Publishing Company, p. 73

Sense the Lord wants this republished today… because we are flying toward the Eye of the Storm… First published February 26th, 2020.
IT is one thing to write the things that I have over the years; it’s another to see them begin to unfold.
I have striven to convey a message to my readers—not through my own words per se—but that of the Magisterium, Scripture and those credible “private revelations” from Christ and His saints. But underlying everything I’ve written and spoken of here or in my book or previous webcasts, are personal “words” that have come to me that, in fact, precede these writings. Sometimes it’s just a few words… other times, it’s many. They are the seeds that eventually flower into these writings.
I recently read a description of how the interior words and lights come to a Benedictine monk who has recorded them in a book called In Sinu Jesu. Finally, I have found a description of my own interior experience, almost to the letter:
Although I have at times suffered from doubts over the authenticity of what was happening, my spiritual director throughout most of the period covered herein identified what was happening as a gratia gratis data. I can only say that the words came peacefully, rapidly, and effortlessly. By this, I do not mean that the words came from within myself, but rather, from what I experienced as an objective but intimate presence of Our Lord… [In the beginning], It was precisely in His Eucharistic presence that these conversations with Our Lord unfolded… The words come rapidly, but they come as realities that impress themselves successively. I don’t know how else to explain it. —by a Benedictine Monk, In Sinu Jesu (Angelico Press),. p. vi
I’m sharing this now because many of the things written here are beginning to unfold, some which I want to share with you again, but in context.
WHEN TIME WAS SHORT
I am reminded of a time several years ago when I asked the Lord, “How soon before all these things begin to unfold?” And with barely a pause, I heard in my heart: “Soon—as in you think soon.” For me, “soon” is within my lifetime. So, with my spiritual director’s permission, I share some of the the private entries from my diary for your own discernment and reflection:
August 24th, 2010:Speak the words, My words, which I have placed on your heart. Do not hesitate. The time is short! …Strive to be single-hearted, to place the Kingdom first in all you do. I say again, do not waste any more time.
August 31st, 2010 (Mary): But now the time has come for the words of the prophets to be fulfilled, and all things brought beneath the heel of my Son. Do not delay in your personal conversion. Listen intently to the voice of my Spouse, the Holy Spirit. Remain in my Immaculate Heart, and you will find refuge in the Storm. Justice now falls. Heaven now weeps… and the sons of men will know sorrow upon sorrow. But I will be with you. I promise to hold you, and like a good mother, protect you beneath the shelter of my wings. All is not lost, but all is gained only through the Cross of my Son [ie. the Church’s own Passion]. Love my Jesus who loves all of you with a burning love.
October 4th, 2010: Time is short, I tell you. In your lifetime Mark, the Sorrows of sorrows will come. Do not be afraid but be prepared, for you do not know the day or the hour when the Son of Man will come as the just Judge.
October 14th, 2010:Now is the time! Now is the time for the nets to be filled and drawn into the barque of My Church.
October 20th, 2010:So little time is left… so little time. Even you will not be ready, for the Day will come like a thief. But continue to fill your lamp, and you will see in the coming darkness (see Matt 25:1-13, and how all the virgins were caught off guard, even those who were “prepared”).
November 3rd, 2010:There is so little time left. Great changes are coming over the face of the earth. People are unprepared. They have not heeded My warnings. Many will die. Pray and intercede for them that they will die in My grace. The powers of evil are marching ahead. They will throw your world into chaos. Fix your heart and eyes firmly on Me, and no harm shall come to you and your household. These are days of darkness, great darkness such as has not been since I laid the foundations of the earth. My Son is coming as light. Who is ready for the revelation of His majesty? Who is ready even among My people to see themselves in the light of Truth?
November 13th, 2010:My son, the sorrow in your heart is but a drop of the sorrow in your Father’s heart. That after so many gifts and attempts to draw men back to Me, they have stubbornly refused My grace. All of Heaven is prepared now. All the angels stand ready for the great battle of your times. Write about it (Rev 12-13). You are on its threshold, mere moments away. Stay awake then. Live soberly, do not fall asleep in sin, for you may never wake up. Be attentive to My word, which I will speak through you, My little mouthpiece. Make haste. Waste no time, for time is something you do not have.
June 16th, 2011: My child, My child, how little time there is left! How little opportunity there is for My people to get their house in order. When I come, it will be like a blazing fire, and people will have no time to do that which they have put off. The hour is coming, as this hour of preparation comes to a close. Weep, My people, for the Lord your God is deeply offended and wounded by your negligence. Like a thief in the night I will come, and will I find all My children asleep? Wake up! Wake up, I tell you, for you do not realize how near is the time of your trial. I am with you and always will be. Are you with Me?
March 15th, 2011: My child, brace your soul for the events which must take place. Do not be afraid, for fear is a sign of a weak faith and impure love. Rather, trust wholeheartedly in all that I will accomplish upon the face of the earth. Only then, in the “fullness of night,” will My people be able to recognize the light… (cf. 1 John 4:18)
But perhaps the “word” most on my heart at this moment is the one that came to me on New Year’s Eve of 2007, the vigil of the feast of the Mother of God. I felt a strong urge to remove myself from the family celebrations and find an empty room to pray. I suddenly sensed Our Lady’s presence and then these clear words in my heart:
The sense was that events around the world were going to unfold very rapidly. I “saw” in my heart three orders collapse, one upon the other like dominoes:
…the economy, then the social, then the political order.
From this, would briefly rise a New World Order (see The Coming Counterfeit). Then, on the Feast of the Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, these words came to me:
My son, prepare for the trials which now begin.
That autumn of 2008, the economy began to implode. Billions of dollars were lost overnight. Had it not been for the artificial printing of money, the banks being bailed out and hiding their losses, the whole economy might have collapsed. In other words, we’ve been on borrowed time ever since. Everything now is like a house of cards. Look how the coronavirus alone has shaken the markets! Whether or not the cornonavirus is as serious as some think, the response alone may change the world as we know it…
IT RAPIDLY COMES NOW
I thank God that He has given all of us nearly a decade since those words from my diary were spoken. We have been given time to get our spiritual house in order. I think, “What, my Lord, what would I have done without all the graces of just the last year? What would I have done without all those necessary confessions, Communions, and reconciliations? Oh Lord, you are Mercy itself! You are Patience itself!”
I saw the Lord Jesus, like a king in great majesty, looking down upon our earth with great severity; but because of His Mother’s intercession He prolonged the time of His mercy… [Jesus said:] Let the greatest sinners place their trust in My Mercy… Write: before I come as a just Judge, I first open wide the door of My mercy. He who refuses to pass through the door of My mercy must pass through the door of My justice…—Divine Mercy in My Soul, Diary of St. Faustina, n. 1261, 1146
How long this Great Transition will take, I do not know. But it’s fairly certain that we have many years yet of struggle, testing, purification and triumph ahead. That does not mean business as usual, though. In fact, what we are beginning to see is that the time between when a seer has been given a message to when it is being fulfilled is, now, months. That’s generally unprecedented when we are dealing with “long term” issues. Labor pains are getting closer together and more intense. That’s why myself and a trusted team of faithful souls are quickly putting together a website that will help you find and discern credible messages from Heaven that are being given to us at this time to prepare and guide the Church in the growing darkness (see Turning the Headlights On).
Just one example… On August 18th of 2019, the Costa Rican seer Luz de Maria, whose previous messages have been approved by her bishop, relayed a message that is arguably unfolding right now. It speaks of a “respiratory illness… insects will invade everything in their path… and the volcano Popocatepetl will begin this purification without stopping the movement of the ground…” What are the odds that all three of those things would happen in this month alone? Popocatepetl erupted again a couple of days ago in spectacular fashion (and again on May 12th, 2021; cf. volcanodiscovery.com). Has this, among other things, begun the purification (i.e. rapid chain of events to bring the world to its knees, hopefully, in repentance)? I recommend that you discern the entire message, allegedly from St. Michael the Archangel, posted here.
This is all to say that foretold disruptions appear to be coming one after another now, including tumultuous events in the Church. As Jesus said to American seer, Jennifer:
My people, this time of confusion will only multiply. When the signs begin to come forth like boxcars, know that the confusion will only multiply with it. Pray! Pray dear children. Prayer is what will keep you strong and will allow you the grace to defend the truth and persevere in these times of trials and sufferings. —Jesus to Jennifer, November 3rd, 2005
These events will come like boxcars on the tracks and will ripple all across this world. The seas are no longer calm and the mountains will awaken and the division will multiply. —April 4th, 2005
Or, as the Lord seemed to explain to me one day, “A Great Storm is coming over the earth like a hurricane.” The closer we get to the eye of the Storm, the more rapid events will come, one after another, like winds moving faster and faster.
Someone wrote tonight asking:It’s starting now, with the coronavirus and the market crash? What should we do to prepare?
Several years ago, I visited Notre Dame in Paris. While admiring the beautiful rose-shaped stained glass windows in the towering cathedral, a nun accompanying us on our journey eagerly leaned over and explained a bit of history. “When it was discovered that the Germans were going to bomb Paris,” she whispered, “workers were sent up to remove these windows, which were then stored deep in underground vaults.”
Dear reader, we can either ignore the warnings from Heaven and pretend that our broken civilization will continue along as it is… or prepare our hearts for the difficult yet hopeful times ahead. As they protected the windows of Notre Dame by taking them underground, so too, the Church has to go “underground” — that is, we need to prepare for these times by entering into the interior of the heart where God dwells. And there, converse with Him frequently, love Him, and let Him love us. For unless we are deeply connected to God, in love with Him, letting Him transform us, how can we be witnesses of His love and mercy to the world? In fact, as truth disappears from the horizon of humanity it is precisely within the hearts of His remnant where truth is being preserved. As one of my favorite spiritual writers said,
One thing is certain: if we do not pray, no one will need us. The world does not need empty souls and hearts. —Fr. Tadeusz Dajczer, The Gift of Faith/Inquiring Faith (Arms of Mary Foundation)
In other words, preparation for these times is not self-preservation. It is actually about self-sacrifice. As such, this ministry has always concerned itself with spiritual preparation: to remain in a “state of grace” (i.e. go to frequent Confession); to spend quality time each day in prayer; to receive Jesus in the Eucharist whenever possible; to meditate on the Scriptures; to consecrate oneself and one’s family to Our Lady, St. Joseph, and the Sacred Heart; to love, forgive, and love even more; and finally, in the past few months, I have begun with great joy to write on understanding and preparing for the charism of Living in the Divine Will, which is the final stage of the Church’s preparation in becoming the Bride of Christ. In other words, this is not a “prepper” but a purification site.That said, prudence would suggest that one have a certain amount of physical preparation in any event. Let’s face it, everything is getting pretty wild. People won’t have time to prepare at some point, but only react. For my American friends, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) issued this statement regarding the spread of the coronavirus:I understand this whole situation may seem overwhelming and that disruption to everyday life may be severe, but these are things people need to start thinking about now. —Dr. Nancy Messonnier, CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases; Feb 25th, 2020; foxnews.comIt’s just common sense to have a few months of food, water, medicine, etc. stored up. At the same time, we ought to be ready to share those resources with others knowing that Our Lord can provide for us whenever He wants. Food is easy for God to give us; faith? Not so much. That’s why spiritual preparation is our goal. GET IN THE ARK!
In closing, I want to share a powerful true story. When a plague descended on Rome in the 6th century, a procession was formed by Pope Gregory to pray against its advance. An image of Our Lady was placed at the front of the procession. Suddenly, a chorus of angels broke out in a song of veneration toward the Virgin Mary: the Regina Coeli (“Hail Holy Queen”). Pope Gregory looked up and atop the Hadrian Mausoleum and there was an angel sheathing his sword. The apparition caused universal rejoicing, believed to be a sign that the plague would come to an end. And so it was: on the third day, not a single fresh case of the sickness was reported: “the air became healthier and more limpid and the miasma of the plague dissolved as if it couldn’t stand its [Our Lady’s] presence.” In honor of this historic fact, the tomb was re-named Castel Sant’Angelo and a statue was erected upon it of an angel sheathing his sword. The moral of the story and the message to us? It’s starting to rain. It’s time to get in the Ark if you are not. And, for us, that Ark is the Immaculate Heart of Mary:
My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God. —Our Lady of Fatima, Second apparition, June 13, 1917, The Revelation of the Two Hearts in Modern Times, www.ewtn.com
Her Little Rabble is not about closing themselves in the Ark by themselves, but drawing as many souls as possible into God’s Mercy… before it’s too late.
My Mother is Noah’s Ark.—Jesus to Elizabeth Kindelmann, The Flame of Love, p. 109. Imprimatur Archbishop Charles Chaput
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 inordinate passions. Even in the Church, how few there are who concern themselves with my motherly and most sorrowful admonitions! You at least, my beloved ones, must listen to me and follow me. And then, through you, I will be able to call everyone to enter as quickly as possible into the Ark of the New Covenant and of salvation, which my Immaculate Heart has prepared for you, in view of these times of chastisement. Here you will be in peace, and you will be able to become signs of my peace and of my motherly consolation for all my poor children. —Our Lady to Fr. Stefano Gobbi, n. 328 in the “Blue Book”; Imprimatur Bishop Donald W. Montrose, Archbishop Francesco Cuccarese

First published May 10, 2019…
THERE are so many serious changes unfolding in the world right now that it is almost impossible to keep up with them. Because of these “signs of the times,” I have dedicated a portion of this website to occasionally speaking about those future events that Heaven has communicated to us primarily through Our Lord and Our Lady. Why? Because Our Lord Himself spoke of future things to come so that the Church would not be caught off guard. In fact, so much of what I began writing thirteen years ago is beginning to unfold in real-time before our eyes. And to be honest, there is a strange comfort in this because Jesus already foretold these times.
False messiahs and false prophets will arise, and they will perform signs and wonders so great as to deceive, if that were possible, even the elect. Behold, I have told it to you beforehand. (Matt 24:24-26)
If He hadn’t, we would wonder what on earth is going on. But this is also why Jesus calls us to “watch and pray that you may not undergo the test,” adding, “the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.” Understanding the signs of the times is essential to know the kind of battle we’re in and thus avoid falling asleep.
My people perish for want of knowledge! …I have told you this so that you may not fall away… (Hosea 4:6; John 16:1)
At the same time, Jesus never obsessed about these things. Likewise, there is a risk that in fixing our eyes upon the distant and uncertain horizon rather than Jesus, we can quickly lose sight of what is most important, what is most necessary, what is most essential in the present moment.
When Martha greeted Jesus with the news that Lazarus had been dead for several days, He responded: “Your brother will rise.” But Martha replied: “I know he will rise, in the resurrection on the last day.” To which Jesus said,
I AM the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this? (John 11:25)
Martha’s eyes were fixed on the future horizon that moment instead of the Lord’s presence. For right then and there, the Creator of the Universe, the Author of Life, the Word Made Flesh, the King of kings, the Lord of lords and Conqueror of Death was present. And He raised Lazarus right then and there.
So too, in this moment of uncertainty, confusion, and darkness that has descended upon our world, Jesus says to you and me: “I AM the Era of Peace; I am the Triumph; I am the Reign of the Sacred Heart, right here, right now… Do you believe in me?”
Yes, Lord. I have come to believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one who is coming into the world. (John 11:27)
You see, the main event is not coming—it is already here! Jesusis the main event. And so, what is most necessary at this moment is that you and I fix our eyes upon Him who is “the leader and perfecter” of our faith.  Practically, this means deliberately surrendering your life to Him; it means speaking with Him in prayer, seeking to know Him in Scripture, and loving Him in those around you. It means repenting of those sins in your life that hurt your relationship with Him and postpone the coming of His Kingdom in your heart. Everything I have said or written in over 1400 writings here comes down to one word: Jesus. If I have spoken of the future, it’s so that you may turn your eyes to the Present. If I have warned of a coming deceiver, it is so that you may encounter the Truth. If I have talked about sin, it is so that you may know the Savior. What else is there?
Whom else have I in the heavens? None beside you delights me on earth. Though my flesh and my heart fail, God is the rock of my heart, my portion forever. But those who are far from you perish; you destroy those unfaithful to you. As for me, to be near God is my good, to make the Lord God my refuge. (Psalm 73:25-28)
The main event at this moment is not earthquakes, famines, or plagues; it is not the rise of a beast and the collapse of Christianity in the West; it is not even the triumphs of which Our Lady has spoken. Rather, it is her Son, Jesus. Here. Now. And He gives Himself daily to us in both His Word and the Eucharist, or wherever two or three are gathered, and even wherever and whenever you call upon His holy name:
To pray “Jesus” is to invoke him and to call him within us. His name is the only one that contains the presence it signifies. —Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 2666
…every day in the prayer of the Our Father we ask the Lord: “Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”(Matt 6:10)…. we recognize that “heaven” is where the will of God is done, and that “earth” becomes “heaven”—i.e., the place of the presence of love, of goodness, of truth and of divine beauty—only if on earth the will of God is done. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, General Audience, February 1st, 2012, Vatican City; cf.Hymn to the Divine Will
So, do not be worried or anxious about tomorrow, brothers and sisters. The Main Event is already here. His name is Emmanuel: “God is with us.” And if you fix your eyes upon Him and don’t turn them away, you will actually become the most significant sign of the times on the horizon of tomorrow.
You will be the dawning of a new day, if you are the bearers of the Life, which is Christ! —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Address to the Young People of Apostolic Nunciature, Lima Peru, May 15th, 1988; www.vatican.va
