More about the Great Monarch

Foreword and Warning

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

In this new age with millenial madness going around, there are a lot of
questions about what the future holds for us. Who is the Antichrist? When
is the End of the World coming?

A lot of people ask these questions and they go to prophecies trying to
find the answer. They are frustrated because they find out who the key
players are going to be and perhaps even what they will accomplish, but
they don't know when. So you have a group of authors who carelessly pin
dates on future events and when the dates go by, they put out another book
and give you the explanation, something along the lines of miscalculating
the apex of the pi of the quadratic shadow of the Great Pyramid while
standing on top of your head reading Revelations out loud while a crow
flies east (or something equally as absurd)

Well, you won't find dates on this web site. You will, however, find out
who the key players are and you will ultimately learn that prophecies are
given to us as warnings. If we have the courage to make the changes
required, everything can be mitigated and even out right avoided. So as you
read these prophecies, many of which are made by very humble and pious
people, make sure to keep in mind that they are prophecies, not
predictions. The future is not set in stone and it can be changed.

The prophecies in here are very rare and not main-stream (they may become
so with the popularity of this web site) and thus the information that you
will find here is very unique. I have undertaken the task of constructing
this web site out of a determination to to better inform the public as to
the existence of these prophecies. Too many posts have appeared in recent
days as to what is going to be happening over the next few years. Everyone
seems to be in agreement with the fact that these are indeed the end times,
yet a lot of people seem to be stuck on the idea that they can tell what is
going to happen and who is going to be the major players simply by looking
at headlines and correlating them with the Bible. I believe in the Bible
just as much as any other Christian out there, but we must be careful not
to overlook other sources of information.

One source of information that has been thoroughly discussed is
Nostradamus. His quatrains and the interpretations thereof have given us a
unique glimpse into what possibly lies ahead in the not-too-distant future.
Many people have done some great work and there are some amazing books
written about the man and the quatrains that he left for us to examine. One
of the sets of books is Conversations with Nostradamus, by Dolores Cannon.
Her premise is that she uses people to psychically contact Nostradamus'
spirit and question him about the quatrains. They are a remarkable set of
books and Goro Adachi has based much of his research into the
interpretations and his findings are quite stunning. Although I do not
agree with all of his conclusions, much of it bears serious consideration
by any prophecy scholar.

Another source of information is information from psychics, mainly by
people such as Edgar Cayce, Chet Snow and Gordon-Michael Scallion. These
people have predicted massive earth changes to come in the next few years
and all this certainly seems to tie in with the changes that are predicted
to come by other sources. While Scallion's track record has not been the
greatest one, the main idea is that the planet is taking a more violent
turn as far as weather and tectonics are concerned.

The one subject that I have not seen discussed on the Internet is the
subject of private prophecies. While sensationalism from such psychics as
Cayce has gripped many, most seem to overlook the wealth of information
that has preceded them in the form of private prophecies, whether they are
through apparations, inner locutions, or visions. They have gone on
throughout the ages, and if anything, they all correlate each other very
well. This is extremely intriguing, considering that we have information
from people such as a 10th century monk that correlates with a 12th century
nun which correlates with the dreams of a 19th century 9-year-old girl. It
is all rather stunning to say the least. And as far as I have seen, these
have been the most overlooked.

I suppose this could be because they are mostly religious in origin, but we
must not forget that the message of the end times comes mainly from
religion. If anything, all these private prophecies serve to correlate and
support the work of others on the Internet and perhaps we can all get a
somewhat clearer picture of what is to come and how perhaps we can prepare
for it.

Finally, I would like to add a few words of caution: a lot of people seem
hell-bent on fixing dates on events. If anything, we know that people can
avert disasters if forewarned. In some of Her apparitions, Mary has said
that some calamities have been thwarted through the power of prayer. I try
to avoid fixing dates on the events that I talk about here simply because I
don't want to fall into the trap that many have. I believe the material
here is solid enough without specific dates, but we are given many warning
signs to look for to warn us that the events are nearing. We also DO have
the length of time that some of the events will last, so while we don't
know when these events may take place, we have an idea of their duration.

Let me again say that although many of the prophecies presented here deal
with imminent destruction and the death of literally billions of people, we
must not lose sight of the fact that in the end, the message is one of
final peace and unity among the nations of the world. Don't go and read
this and move yourself to the Yukon and live in a bomb shelter. Instead,
take the messages here and try to ready yourself and others for what might
be happening very shortly. Times will be hard, but we can all persevere if
we all learn to love and help each other out.

Let me also say that I welcome all comments, but if you are going to email
me on the fact that most of the material here is religiously bent, don't
bother. First off, I didn't make the prophecies up. They come from mostly
Catholic sources and if you are open enough to the idea of UFOs and faces
on Mars and life on Europa and that Martians built the Sphinx, then you can
be open to the fact that maybe there is something more than just pomp and
circumstance to religion and that maybe, just maybe, religion is not just
the work of excited cavemen that didn't know how to explain fire and the
wondrous nature that they lived in and had to created a God. Maybe He's out
there and maybe there is something to the message after all.

Timeline of coming events

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

The following information presents a possible timeline of events as they
may happen in the future. You will notice that there is a lack of dates,
mainly because it is very hard to fix dates on these events. We can,
however, based on cross-correlations of prophecies, construct a possible
order of events.

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

As the world approaches the 21st century, it becomes apparent that all is
not so well with the natural enviroment. Storms become increasingly more
violent, and earthquakes begin to rumble with more and more frequency. On
the enviromental side of things, global warming becomes a bigger issue once
agan. Politically, the world begins to move towards less governments,
although not necessarily a one-world government. The United States seeks to
maintain its influence in world affairs, while the new European Union
begins to assert its influence. The remains of the former Soviet Union,
while no longer a world power, also seeks to exhert its influence. China
and the rest of the Pacific Rim countries, such as Japan, Malasya,
Singapore, and Indonesia, begin to cooperate and exhert their influence as
well.

On the religious side, the world sees the coming of the end of the reign of
Pope John Paul II. His death will mark the end of an era of peace and
stability for the Catholic Church.

It is during this time that violent geological upheavals will threaten the
political and social stability of the entire planet. The world will be
rocked by cataclysms such as never seen before and many will lose their
lives. It will mark the beginning of the End. The End will not come
suddenly, but rather sneak in like the tide and overtake everything in its
path.

These violent changes will not only devastate people, but entire nations as
well. The United States may very well be very crippled as it tries to fight
off the effects of these terrible calamities. The Pacific Rim countries,
such as Japan and Indonesia, may also be very devastated from these
calamities, both in people and in economic troubles.

During this time of great natural cataclysms, there will be many deaths.
These massive natural diasters will affect the economies of all nations
around the world. It may happen that the U.S. economy is devastated by the
natural disasters. As it tries to deal with a possible massive earthquake
on the West Coast, it may also be involved in events in the Korean
peninsula. During these events, there will much trouble in Europe. Riots
will break out in France, England, Germany, Spain, and Italy. The rest of
Europe will soon follow suit. The riots appear to be related to famine and
disease. People all over Europe will clamor for food. The riots could also
be related to massive resistance to a European Union.

Seeing this chaos, apparently Europe is attacked by a unified Arab/Muslim
faction. They overrun the Middle East and wage war all the way to Germany.
Apparently the pope will have to flee Rome and will die in exile. Many
prophecies speak of the Holy See as being vacant for many years.

It is not clear what happens to the United States during this time, but it
is apparent enough that they are not involved in the European problems.
They may stay out of the affairs of Europe seeing as to how they are
apparently internal problems until it is too late.

During this time there are apparently massive crop failures. Christians are
persecuted throughout the world and there are still massive geological
changes going on. There could be a shift in the poles, and there could be a
change in atmospheric conditions, such as jetstream pattern changes.

When all seems lost, a leader rises in France to help fight back the
Muslims and Arabs overrunning Europe. He is referred to as The Great
Monarch and may be the Henri II that Nostradamus writes to in his epistles.
He fights back the Muslims and retakes the Holy Land. He helps install a
new Pope (who may be Peter II, or Petrus Romanus, from the St. Malachy
List) and apparently takes the fight all the way to Arabia. Many muslims
will apparently convert. The Great Monarch establishes an era of prosperity
such as the world has never seen and rules for many years. Towards the end
of his reign, another would-be-leader arises, who may be the precursor to
the Antichrist. This "Nero" causes many problems in the new Roman Empire
and apparently the Great Monarch is led to clash with him. Nero is defeated
by the Great Monarch, but apparently the Great Monarch is killed by the
Antichrist, who by this time has taken a great leadership role in the
Middle East and is seen as the Messiah of the Jewish World.

Antichrist rules with an iron fist. He has many problems, especially in
dealing with Enoch and Elijah. Eventually, he is defeated and the Final
Judgement follows 40 days or so after his death.

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

The Great Disaster

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

This page lists many prophecies detailing the events that will unfold as we
near the coming of the Antichrist. As we will see as we explore these
prophecies, the following sequence of events takes shape:

* Initially, we may not see not a world war, but a breakdown of the
current peace. Revolutions and economic collapses will spur this on.
It will not take on the aspects of a world war until later, during
Muslim invasions of Europe.
* We will see a war shortly after the natural disasters. This will be
following by a period of peace under the Great Monarch. The Great
Monarch is the French King that will restore peace to the world. At
the end, he will be defeated by the Antichrist.
* Antichrist will establish his kingdom and will declare himself as God.
All that do not worship him will be persecuted. He is ultimately
defeated.

This is, of course, a very general outline of the sequence of events. Many
details are also outlined below.

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

(( St. Malachy (12th Century) )): "Ireland will suffer English
oppression for a week of centuries, but will preserve her
fidelity to God and His Church. At the end of that time she will
be delivered, and the English in turn must suffer severe
chastisement. Ireland, however, will be instrumental in bringing
the English back to the unity of Faith."

(( Comment )): In the 12th century, England had just begun her
conquest of Ireland, but she was still Catholic. Persecutions did
not begin until the 16th or 17th century. Despite the
persecutions, Ireland preserved her Faith. Liberation for Ireland
finally came in the 20th Century. If the prophecy is valid and it
was made in the 12th century, indeed more than a week of
centuries have passed and she is now independent. So, much of
this prophecy has come true. It's likely that the coming trouble
that England is going to face (it's chastisement) will be a
prelude to England returning to the Catholic Church. One could
read this as the English monarchy recognizing the authority of
the Catholic Church, or even an end to the English monarchy.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Hildegard (12th Century) )): "The time is coming when
princes and peoples will reject the authority of the Pope. Some
countries will prefer their own Church rulers to the Pope. The
German Empire will be divided. Church property will be
secularized. Priests will be persecuted. Toward the end of the
world mankind will be purified through sufferings. This will be
true especially of the clergy who will be robbed of all
property."

(( Comment )): Much of this prophecy has already come true. Many
countries became protestant in the 16th century, and the German
Empire was divided as a result. What we have yet to see is the
sufferings that this prophecy talks about and the demise of the
clergy. Note that the word clergy would not necessarily mean
Catholic clergy. This could of all denominations.

((continued... )) "A powerful wind will rise in the north
carrying heavy fog and the densest of dust by divine command, and
it will fill their throats and eyes so that they will cease their
savagery and be stricken with a great fear. Before the comet
comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scourged by want
and famine. The great nation in the ocean that is inhabited by
people of different tribes and descent will be devastated by an
earthquake, storm, and tidal wave. It will be divided, and in
great part, submerged. That nation will have many misfortunes at
sea and lose its colonies. By its tremendous pressure the comet
will force much out of the ocean and flood many countries,
causing much want and many plagues. All coastal cities will live
in fear, and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves and
most living creatures will be killed, and even those who escape
will die from horrible diseases. For in none of those cities does
a person live according to the laws of God. "Peace will return to
the world when the white flower again takes possession of the
throne of France. During the period of peace, people will be
forbidden to carry weapons, and iron will be used only for making
agricultural implements and tools. Also during this time, the
land will be very productive and many Jews, heathens, and
heretics will join the Church."

(( Comment )): A lot of what St. Hildegard talks about in this
prophecy is repeated in other prophecies. The wind that comes
with such power and velocity is one that is often referred to as
happening in a crucial battle. This could be Armaggedon. Some of
this prophecy has also already come true. The great comet has not
arrived yet, and we are witness to many countries, especially the
Third World countries, where poverty and starvation is rampant.
The great nation that is referred to here is interpreted by some
to be England, especially with reference to the loss of colonies,
but I believe it to be the United States. It seems to fit the
current times more properly. The United States is a great nation
whose very foundations are laid with the diversity of its people.
There are also other prophecies, such as ones by Edgar Cayce and
Gordon Michael Scallion, that refer to the terrible natural
disasters that are to befall the United States that seem to be
referred to here: earthquake, storm, tidal wave. Edgar Cayce and
Scallion both talk about the U.S. being divided by the fact that
the Great Lakes seemingly empty out into the Gulf of Mexico,
effectively rendering the Southeast U.S. into an island, not to
mention the fall of California into the ocean. Here we also have
the first mention of the Great Monarch, the French King that will
bring peace to the world after the chaos has subsided. The white
flower is the fleur-de-lys, the symbol of the French Monarchy. We
will see much more of the French King later.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Old English Prophecy (( On a Tombstone at the Kirby cemetary,
Essex )):

When pictures look alive, with movements free,
When ships like fish swim beneath the sea,
When men outstripping birds can soar the sky,
Then half the world deep drenched in blood shall die.

In Germany begins a dance,
Which passeth through Italy, Spain and France.
But England shall pay the piper.

When Our Lady shall lie on Our Lord's Lap,
Then England will meet with a strange mishap.

(( Comment )): There is a 20th-Century German prophecy that says
the same thing: problems will begin in Germany, spread through
Italy, France, and Spain, but that England will suffer the most.
There are other prophecies that will be quoted later to
corroborate the problems in England and the fact that it will be
France that will aid England the most.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Sister Bouquillion (19th Century) )): "The beginning of the
end shall not come in the 19th century, but in the 20th for
sure."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Old German Prophecy )): "When the world becomes godless,
revolutions will break out against kings. Fathers will fight
their sons, and sons their fathers. The doctrine will be
perverted, and they will try to overthrow the Catholic Church.
Men will be pleasure-loving. A terrible war will find the North
fighting the South. The South will be led by a prince wearing a
white coat with a cross on the front. He will be lame afoot. He
will gather his forces at Bremen for Mass. Then he will lead them
into battle beyond Woerl near the birch-tree country
(Westphalia). After a terrible battle at a brook running
eastwards near Berdberg and Sondern, the South will be
victorius."

(( Comment )): The doctrine being perverted seems to refer to the
fact that Mass and the Church will be changed to a more worldy
approach, as it was done in Vatican II. The prince referred to
here is none other than the great French prince, the Great
Monarch to come. Before engaging in a battle against terrible
odds, he will take his troops to Mass and afterwards lead them
into victory. The Prince's lameness is referred to in other
prophecies, as we will see later.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Madgeburg Chronicle )): "Of the blood of the emperor Charles
the Great and of the Kings of France shall arise an emperor named
Charles, who shall rule in Europe, by whom the decayed Estate of
the Church shall be reformed and the ancient glory of the Empire
restored."

(( Comment )): Another prophecy to back up the claim that the
Great Monarch will be French. Here it also asserts that he will
restore the Church after it has been apparently destroyed and
that he will rule all of Europe.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( John of Vatigerro (13th Century) )): "Spoilation, pillaging,
and devastation of that most famous city which is the capital and
mistress of France will take place when the Church and the world
are grievously troubled. The Pope will change his residence and
the Church will not be defended for 25 months or more because,
during all that time, there will be no Pope in Rome, no emperor
and no ruler in France. But after this, a young captive prince
shall recover the Crown of the Lilies and shall extended his
dominion over the world." "After many tribulations, a Pope shall
be elected out of those that survived the persecutions. By his
sanctity he will reform the clergy, and the whole world shall
venerate the Church for her sanctity, virtue, and perfection."

(( Comment )): This is the first of many prophecies that foretell
the utter destruction of Paris. Its destruction will take place
apparently after the natural disasters that will grip the world.
Chaos will reign in Spain, Italy, France, and England. The
problems will become so great that the Pope (probably the one
after John Paul II, but definitely NOT Peter II, the last Pope)
will have to flee Rome. We are told here that there will be no
Pope for at least 2 years, perhaps more. Then the last Pope will
be elected and he will bring the Church back through his
holiness, and as we have seen, with the aid of the French King.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( John of the cleft rock (13th Century) )): "Towards the end of
the world, tyrants and hostile mobs will rob the Church and the
clergy of all their possessions and will afflict and martyr them.
Those who heap the most abuse upon them will be held in high
esteem." "The clergy cannot escape these persecutions, but,
because of them, all the servants of the Church will be forced to
lead an apostolic life." "At that time, the Pope with his
cardinals will have to flee Rome in tragic circumstances to a
place where they will be unknown. The Pope will die a cruel death
in his exile. The sufferings of the Church will be much greater
than at any other previous time in her history. But God will
raise a holy Pope, and the Angels will rejoice. Enlightened by
God, this man will rebuild almost the whole world through his
holiness. He will lead everyone to the true Faith. Everywhere,
the fear of God, virtue, and good morals will prevail. He will
lead all erring sheep back to the fold, and there shall be one
faith, one law, one rule of life, and one baptism on earth. All
men will love each other and do good, and all quarrels and wars
will cease."

(( Comment )): This tells us that the Pope will die in exile. I
don't believe that the Pope to die in exile will be John Paul II,
but his successor instead. After his death, there will be further
persecutions and the Church will have much to suffer, but there
will come a just Pope who will set the Church better than before
and he will be revered throughout the world.

Re: P R O P H E C I E S for the Times Ahead
(( St. Vincent Ferrer (15th Century) )): "Armies from the West,
East, and North will fight together in Italy, and the Eagle shall
capture the false king, and all things shall be made obedient
unto him, and there shall be a new reformation of the world." "In
the days of peace that are to come after the desolation of
revolutions and wars -- before the end of the world -- Christians
will become so lax in their religion that they will refuse the
sacrament of Confirmation, saying that it is unnecessary. And
when the false prophet, the precursor of Antichrist, comes, all
who are not confirm will apostatize, while those who are
confirmed will stand fast in their faith, and only a few will
renounce Christ."

(( Comment )): The Eagle here is the French Prince. He will
capture the false king, meaning that he will defeat either an
evil leader in Italy, or he will dispose of an anti-pope. There
are numerous mentions of an anti-pope holding the Holy See after
the death of the Pope in exile, so this might be a plausible
scenario. The second paragraph warns that after the great
disasters that befall the world, there will be a laxness in
religion and many will believe the false prophet when he heralds
the coming of the Antichrist as the return of the Messiah. Those
that are confirmed in the Catholic Faith will remain faithful.
Those who are not will turn away, or apostatize, and there will
be a handful of Catholics who will turn regardless.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Telesphorus of Cozensa (16th Century) )): "A powerful French
Monarch and French Pope will regain the Holy Land after terrible
wars in Europe. They will convert the world and bring universal
peace. They will overcome the German ruler."

(( Comment )): This prophecy pretty much backs up other
prophecies. The Holy Land that this prophecy refers to is Israel.
Other prophecies refer to the fact that this Pope will evangelize
the world, bringing Muslims, Hindus, and every other religion
into the fold. It is unclear who the German ruler may be. There
may be a ruler who imposes himself and his authority while the
chaos reigns in Europe and is defeated by the French Monarch
after his rise to power.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Fr. Balthassar Mas (17th Century) )): "I saw a land swallowed
up by the sea and covered with water. But, afterwards, I saw the
sea receded little by little and the land could be seen again.
The tops of the towers in the city rose again above the water and
appeared more beautiful than before, and I was told that this
land was England."

(( Comment )): This prophecy is often correlated with the
prophecy of St. Hildegard, but I believe she talks about the U.S.
and this one talks about England. I could be wrong, but there is
ample evidence to show that the natural disasters that befall the
world will be world-wide, meaning all countries will experience
many natural calamities. England's flooding and the U.S.'s
flooding may be caused by the same events and would probably
happen around the same period of time.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Bl. Mary of Agreda (17th Century) )): "It was revealed to me
that through the intercession of the Mother of God all heresies
will disappear. The victory over heresies has been reserved by
Christ for His Blessed Mother. In the latter days, the Lord will
in a special manner spread the renown of His Mother. Mary began
salvation, and by her intercession it will be completed. Before
the second coming of Christ, Mary, more than ever, must shine in
mercy, might, and grace in order to bring unbelievers into the
Catholic Faith. The power of Mary in the latter days will be very
conspicuous. Mary will extend the reign of Christ over the
heathens and Mohammedans, and it will be a time of great joy when
Mary is enthroned as Mistress and Queen of Hearts." "An unusual
chastisement of the human race will take place towards the end of
the world."

(( Comment )): The apparitions of Mary in the last 150 years have
been unprecedented and her message of love and peace are designed
to bring the world closer to Jesus and the Catholic Faith. In
this prophecy, it states that Mary will be instrumental in
bringing Muslims to the Catholic Faith. There have been
apparitions of Mary over traditional Islamic sites and the
Islamic religion reveres Mary greatly.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort (18th Century) )): "The
power of Mary over all the devils will be particularly
outstanding in the last period of time. She will extend the
Kingdom of Christ over the idolaters and Moslems, and there will
come a glorious era when Mary is the Ruler and Queen of Hearts."

(( Comment )): Another confirmation that the Muslims will be
converted. This will be done under the reign of the Great Monarch
after he has defeated them and driven them out of Europe.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Bernhardt Rembordt (18th Century) )): "Cologne will be the
site of a terrible battle. Many foreigners will be slaughtered
there; both men and women will fight for their Faith. It will be
impossible to prevent the horrible devastation. People will wade
up to their ankles in blood. At last, a foreign King will appear
and win a victory for the cause of the righteous. The remaining
enemy will retreat to the Birchtree country. There, the last
battle will be fought for the just cause." "At that time France
will be divided. The German Empire will choose a simple man as
the Emperor, who will rule for a short time. His successor will
be a man for whom the world has longed. He will be called a
"Roman Emperor", and he will bring peace to the world. A good and
happy era will follow. God will be praised on earth, and war will
be no more."

(( Comment )): There are many prophecies that talk about a battle
at the Birchtree Country. This seems to be Westphalia. This
prophecy also makes mention of the German King, as mentioned by
Telesphorus earlier. This German ruler will precede the Great
Monarch.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Elizabeth Canori-Mora (19th Century) )): "Countless legions of
demons shall overrun the earth-- the instrument of divine
justice-- and causing [sic] terrible calamities and disasters.
Nothing on earth shall be spared. After the frightful punishment
I saw a great light appear upon the earth which was the sign of
reconciliation of God with men. All men shall become Catholics
and they shall acknowledge the Pope as the Vicar of Jesus
Christ."

(( Comment )): That demons will overrun the earth is mentioned in
many prophecies. With the calamities and evils that exist in the
world today, the unleashing may have already begun. The sign that
appears may have something to do with the sign that Mary spoke of
in Garabandal, Spain. There are other prophecies that associate
the vast unleashing of demons during the three days of darkness
that befall the earth.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Francis of Paola (15th Century) )): "By the grace of the
Almighty, the great Monarch will annihilate heretics and
unbelievers. He will have a great army, and angels will fight at
his side. He will be like the sun among the stars. His influence
will spread over the whole earth. All in all, there will be on
earth twelve Kings, one Emperor, one Pope, and a few Princes.
They will all lead holy lives."

World War III

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------



After the series of natural disasters that befall most of the planet, there
is a lot of chaos. Governments in disarray, riots, and massive confusion
are the rule and the norm. It is apparently during this time that a daring
attack is staged. Apparently, the attack will come from the Arab states and
will eventually strike deep within the center of Western Europe. All will
seem lost. The Vatican will be overrun and the traditional allies of the
West, such as the United States, will be nowhere to be found. What follows
are some prophecies made over the centuries relating to these post-disaster
events. Some are repeats of prophecies seen in the Great Disaster section,
but they are worth repeating since they cover events during and after the
Great Disaster. They contain added comments for this section as well.

* St. Malachy (12th Century): "Ireland will suffer English oppression
for a week of centuries, but will preserve her fidelity to God and His
Church. At the end of that time she will be delivered, and the English
in turn must suffer severe chastisement. Ireland, however, will be
instrumental in bringing the English back to the unity of Faith."

Comment: In the 12th century, England had just begun her conquest of
Ireland, but she was still Catholic. Persecutions did not begin until
the 16th or 17th century. Despite the persecutions, Ireland preserved
her Faith. Liberation for Ireland finally came in the 20th Century. If
the prophecy is valid and it was made in the 12th century, indeed more
than a week of centuries have passed and she is now independent. So,
much of this prophecy has come true. It's likely that the coming
trouble that England is going to face (it's chastisement) will be a
prelude to England returning to the Catholic Church. One could read
this as the English monarchy recognizing the authority of the Catholic
Church, or even an end to the English monarchy. At the point of after
the Great Disaster, England will apparently be in disarray. Could this
prophecy indicate that the Irish will take charge of British affairs
during this time of trouble?

* Old English Prophecy (On a Tombstone at the Kirby cemetary, Essex):

When pictures look alive, with movements free,
When ships like fish swim beneath the sea,
When men outstripping birds can soar the sky,
Then half the world deep drenched in blood shall die.

In Germany begins a dance,
Which passeth through Italy, Spain and France.
But England shall pay the piper.

When Our Lady shall lie on Our Lord's Lap,
Then England will meet with a strange mishap.

Comment: There is a 20th-Century German prophecy that says the
same thing: problems will begin in Germany, spread through Italy,
France, and Spain, but that England will suffer the most.

There are other prophecies that will be quoted later to
corroborate the problems in England and the fact that it will be
France that will aid England the most. This prophecy could have
partially come true already. The dance could refer to events in
World War II, beginning in Germany and spreading thorugh Italy
and Spain. France fell under the Nazi yoke in World War II and
this could refer to that fact. It is the last two lines that
provide us with a clue as to that something befalls England that
is not seen before, such as an earthquake or a flood.

* Bishop Christianos Ageda (12th Century): "In the 20th Century there
will be wars and fury which will last a long time; whole provinces
will be emptied of their inhabitants, and kingdoms shall be thrown
into confusion. In many places the land will be left untilled, and
there shall be great slaughters of the upper class. The right hand of
the world shall fear the left and the north shall prevail over the
south."

Comment: Considering when this prophecy was made (12th Century), it is
quite remarkable. Assuming that it could refer to events after the
Great Disaster, this prophecy could then also be talking about events
in Europe right after the catclysm. As it stands though, it can be
seen as a clear hit for the 20th Century.

* Sister Bouquillion (19th Century): "The beginning of the end shall not
come in the 19th century, but in the 20th for sure."
* Old Saxon Prophecy: "The seven-headed city, now more admirable than
Jerusalem, shall be a place more desolate than Jerusalem. The Dog
shall enter Germany but shall afterwards forsake his master and choose
for himself a new man, whereby Scripture shall be fulfilled. This Dog
shall signify the Turk which shall forsake his Mohammed and choose
unto him the name Christian, which is a sign that the day of Doom is
at hand, when all the Earth is subject unto God, or that all people
acknowledge one only God. The Fleur-de-Lys (Lily) and France shall
live long at variance, but at last agree. Then shall the clear Word
spring forth and flourish throughout the World."

"But after all these things the end of the world shall approach and
there shall be heavy and pitiful days."

Comment: The seven-headed city is probably Rome (septicolis- seven
hills). This is not the only prophecy that talks about the demise of
Rome; others talk that it will be so utterly destroyed that it will be
threatened by encroachment of the sea. The Dog here are often
interpreted as being the Turks. I believe this could also point to an
Arab confederation of Islamic countries. They will overrun the Middle
East and, perhaps with Russian backing, reach all the way to Germany,
destroying Rome in the process. The Dog forsaking his master refers to
the conversion of the Islamic countries to the Christian faith. The
conversion will come after they are driven out of Europe by the Great
Monarch, the French Prince that is oft referred to in the prophecies.

* John of Vatigerro (13th Century): "Spoilation, pillaging, and
devastation of that most famous city which is the capital and mistress
of France will take place when the Church and the world are grievously
troubled. The Pope will change his residence and the Church will not
be defended for 25 months or more because, during all that time, there
will be no Pope in Rome, no emperor and no ruler in France. But after
this, a young captive prince shall recover the Crown of the Lilies and
shall extended his dominion over the world."

"After many tribulations, a Pope shall be elected out of those that
survived the persecutions. By his sanctity he will reform the clergy,
and the whole world shall venerate the Church for her sanctity,
virtue, and perfection."

Comment: This is the first of many prophecies that foretell the utter
destruction of Paris. Its destruction will take place apparently after
the natural disasters that will grip the world. Chaos will reign in
Spain, Italy, France, and England. The problems will become so great
that the Pope (probably the one after John Paul II, but definitely NOT
Peter II, the last Pope) will have to flee Rome. We are told here that
there will be no Pope for at least 2 years, perhaps more. Then the
last Pope will be elected and he will bring the Church back through
his holiness, and as we have seen, with the aid of the French King.

* Bernhardt Rembordt (18th Century): "Cologne will be the site of a
terrible battle. Many foreigners will be slaughtered there; both men
and women will fight for their Faith. It will be impossible to prevent
the horrible devastation. People will wade up to their ankles in
blood. At last, a foreign King will appear and win a victory for the
cause of the righteous. The remaining enemy will retreat to the
Birchtree country. There, the last battle will be fought for the just
cause."

"At that time France will be divided. The German Empire will choose a
simple man as the Emperor, who will rule for a short time. His
successor will be a man for whom the world has longed. He will be
called a "Roman Emperor", and he will bring peace to the world. A good
and happy era will follow. God will be praised on earth, and war will
be no more."

Comment: There are many prophecies that talk about a battle at the
Birchtree Country. This seems to be Westphalia. This prophecy also
makes mention of the German King, as mentioned by Telesphorus earlier.
This German ruler will precede the Great Monarch.

* Blessed Ana Maria Taigi (19th Century): "France shall fall into a
frightful anarchy. The French shall have a desperate civil war in the
course of which even old men will take up arms. The political parties,
having exhausted their blood and their rage without being able to
arrive at any satisfactory settlement, shall agree at the last
extremity to have recourse to the Holy See. Then the Pope shall send
to France a special legate. . . In consequence of the information
received, his Holiness himself shall nominate a most Christian King
for the government of France."

Comment: The problems in France are described here. France has a
complete breakdown of the government and massive anarchy follows. With
these problems, the invaders who have sacked Rome will be able to
attack France. The Pope will name a defender for France, who is the
Great Monarch that is discussed elsewhere.

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------


The Rise of the Great Monarch

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

After the Great Disaster, Europe is apparently overrun by Arab forces
seeking to subjugate Europe for the last time. The attack comes from deep
inside Arabia and plunges deeply into Western Europe, reaching as far as
Germany. It is during this time that a young prince rises up out of France
and unites forces against the Arab attack. Below are some initial traits
about the Great Monarch and his rise to power in Western Europe.

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

(( Rudolph Gekner, 17th Century) )): "His sword will be moved by
Divine power..."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Monk Adso (10th Century) )): "Some of our teachers say that a
King of the Franks will possess the entire Roman Empire. He will
be the greatest and last of all Monarchs. After having wisely
governed his kingdom, he will go into Jerusalem and will lay his
sceptre and his crown upon the Mount of Olives. Immediately
afterwards, Antichrist will come."

(( Comment )): Another prophecy regarding the French King.
According to this prophecy, he will travel to Jerusalem and
apparently defeated at the hand of the Antichrist. Other
prophecies refer to the fact that he will travel to Jerusalem
twice, once at the beginning of his reign and once at the end.
His death will mark the end of the age of peace since the end of
the great disaster and signals the beginning of the reign of
Antichrist.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( David Poreaus (17th Century) )): "The Great Monarch will be of
French descent, large forehead, large dark eyes, light brown wavy
hair, and an eagle nose. He will crush the enemies of the Pope
and will conquer the East."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Premol, 5th Century) )): "And a voice fell from the heavens:
'Here are those whom I have chosen'" (i.e. the Great Monarch and
the Holy Pope)

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Francis of Paola (15th Century) )): "By the grace of the
Almighty, the great Monarch will annihilate heretics and
unbelievers. He will have a great army, and angels will fight at
his side. He will be like the sun among the stars. His influence
will spread over the whole earth. All in all, there will be on
earth twelve Kings, one Emperor, one Pope, and a few Princes.
They will all lead holy lives."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Augustine, 5th Century) )): "A Frankish King will one day
rule over the entire Roman Empire."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Ven. B. Holzhauser, 17th Century) )): "The sixth period (of
time) will begin with the powerful Monarch."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Cur‚ of Ars, 19th Century) )): "The good people will triumph
when the return of the King is announced."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Old Saxon prophecy )): "He will come from the Fleur-de-Lis..."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Cataldus, 5th Century )): "... a King of the House of
Lilies..."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Caesar, 5th Century )): "He shall recover the Crown of the
Lilies....."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Hildegarde, German Abbess, 12th Century )): "The White
Flower again takes possession of the Throne of France."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Bishop Ageda, 12th Century )): "He shall inherit the Crown of
the Fleur-de-Lis"

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------



Some details, seemingly unimportant, are nevertheless worth mentioning
because of their varied origins. Among these is the fact that he will walk
with a limp:

* (Nostradamus, 16th Century): "... Prince's foot impeded ... "
* (Old German prophecy): "He will be lame afoot ... "
* (Anne-Catherine Emmerich, 19th Century): "God touched the sinew of his
hip. He was in great pain and from that day on, he walked with a limp
... "
* (Peasant Jasper, Germany): "This Prince shall mount his horse on the
right-hand side, because he limps from one foot .... "

He will be full of goodness and virtue; many prophecies insist on this.

* (St. Isidore, 7th Century): "A very pious King shall reign over Spain
..... "
* (St. Francis of Paola, 15th Century): "In his childhood he will be
like a saint; in his youth a great sinner; then he will be converted
entirely to God and will do great penance; his sins shall be forgiven
him, and he shall become a great saint."

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------


The Fall and Rise of the Roman Catholic Church

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

Arab forces, overrunning Europe, force the Pope to have to flee Rome. The
Church falls into an utter state of confusion and Rome is apparently
sacked. The Pope dies in exile and there is no Pope in place for a number
of years. Just as things seem lost, however, the Great French Monarch
begins to turn the tide against the Arab invaders and eventually liberates
Rome and restores the Papacy. The details on the prophecies regarding the
fall and last rise of the Catholic Church follow:

(( St. Hildegard (12th Century) )): "The time is coming when
princes and peoples will reject the authority of the Pope. Some
countries will prefer their own Church rulers to the Pope. The
German Empire will be divided. Church property will be
secularized. Priests will be persecuted. Toward the end of the
world mankind will be purified through sufferings. This will be
true especially of the clergy who will be robbed of all
property."

(( Comment )): Much of this prophecy has already come true. Many
countries became protestant in the 16th century, and the German
Empire was divided as a result. What we have yet to see is the
sufferings that this prophecy talks about and the demise of the
clergy. Note that the word clergy would not necessarily mean
Catholic clergy. This could of all denominations.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Monk Adso (10th Century) )): "Some of our teachers say that a
King of the Franks will possess the entire Roman Empire. He will
be the greatest and last of all Monarchs. After having wisely
governed his kingdom, he will go into Jerusalem and will lay his
sceptre and his crown upon the Mount of Olives. Immediately
afterwards, Antichrist will come."

(( Comment )): Another prophecy regarding the French King.
According to this prophecy, he will travel to Jerusalem and
apparently defeated at the hand of the Antichrist. Other
prophecies refer to the fact that he will travel to Jerusalem
twice, once at the beginning of his reign and once at the end.
His death will mark the end of the age of peace since the end of
the great disaster and signals the beginning of the reign of
Antichrist.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Malachy (12th Century) )): The following is an excerpt of
the list of Popes as prepared by St. Malachy in the 12th century.
The list gives a fitting description of every Pope since the 16th
Century, when it was discovered The following lists the last 12
mottoes, with my own commentary on each:

(( Crux de Cruce (Cross from a Cross) )): Pius IX. His
reign saw the Italian Revolution, which was backed by
the House of Savoy. Its Coat-Of-Arms bears a Cross.

(( Lumen in Coelo (Light in the Heaven) )): Leo XIII.
His Coat-Of-Arms featured a comet. Some say that it is
also symbolism for being a brilliant writer
(light=brilliant writer, Heaven=Church).

(( Ignis Ardens (Burning Fire) )): St. Pius X. He was
"on fire" with his zeal for the Catholic Church and was
canonized 40 years after his death. Also World War I
erupted on the 11th anniversary of his election.

(( Religio Depopulata (Religion depopulated) )):
Benedict XV, the Pope during World War I.

(( Fides Intrepida (Fearless Faith) )): Pius XI. He was
the Pope of the Propagation of Faith.

(( Pastor Angelicus (Angelic Sheperd) )): Pius XII. His
holiness was unquestionable.

(( Pastor et Nauta (Sheperd and Sailor) )): John XXIII.
This Pope came from Venice, the city of sailors. He was
mostly concerned with pastoral interests and the way
that the Gospel should be taught. He also set the
Church on a new course with his "Aggiornamento".

(( Flos Florum (Flower of Flowers) )): Paul VI. His
Coat-of-Arms is said to feature the lily (the flower of
flowers).

(( De Meditate Luna (From the midst (or middle) of the
Moon) )): John Paul I. The Biblical meaning of the moon
is "worldy kingdom", but some have drawn symbolism to
the fact that his Papacy lasted less than the cycle of
a moon. The very meaning of the moon and the fact that
there are many rumors that he was indeed assassinated
due to the conservative views that he had may lead one
to believe that the moon represents also the fact that
his Papacy was influenced by events around him and that
may have led to his demise.

(( De Labore Solis (Of the Labor of the Sun) )): John
Paul II, our current Pope. This very same sybolism can
be found in Apocalypse 12:1-5, of a woman clothed in
the sun in labor about to give birth to a son, who
subsequently rules the earth with a "rod of iron". This
son may be the Great Monarch to come. In some of her
apparitions, Mary has stated that she is the woman in
labor in Apocalypse, and John Paul II's devotion to
Mary cannot be questioned. Perhaps it is symbolism that
the Great King to come is ready to be born during or
shortly after John Paul II's Papacy. There are many
others who think that the symbolism refers to the
eclipse that ocurred during John Paul II's birth and
perhaps one that ocurrs in his death.

(( De Gloria Olivae (Of the Glory of the Olive Tree)
)): This has taken on a chilling new meaning as the
Italian Olive Tree party has gained control of the
government. Perhaps we will see this Pope during the
time that the Olive Tree Party is in power in Italy.
Another meaning is that it could refer to the rising
power or victory of Israel (The Olive).

(( Petrus Romanus (Peter the Roman) )): The last Pope,
whose name will probably be Peter II. His motto is
accompanied by a description of a great tribulation on
the Church and on the Final Judgement. It states:

"In persecutione extrema S.R.E. sedebit
Petrus Romanus, qui pascet oues in multis
tribulationibus: quibus transactis ciuitas
septicollis diruetur, & Iudex tremκdus
iudicabit populum suum. Finis."

(In extreme persecution, the seat of the Holy
Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the
Roman, who will feed the sheep through many
tribulations, at the term of which the city
of seven hills will be destroyed, and the
formidable Judge will judge his people. The
End.)

I should go ahead and note that as we will see later, there is no reason to
believe that Peter II's rule will come immediately after his predecessor.
In fact, there appears that there will be a time when there is no Pope in
Rome, at least not a true and holy Pope. More on this late

Re: P R O P H E C I E S for the Times Ahead
St. Pius X (20th Century): "I saw one of my successors taking to flight
over the bodies of his brethren. He will take refuge in disguise somewhere;
and after a short retirement he will die a cruel death. The present
wickedness of the world is only the beginning of the sorrows which must
take place before the end of the world."

Comment: There are other prophecies that back up this one: a future Pope
will be forced into fleeing Rome and will die in exile. This will probably
be the Pope after John Paul II. There are a couple of prophecies that say
that the exiled Pope will die in Avignon, while others say Cologne. They
all agree that it will in France, though.

Old Saxon Prophecy: "The seven-headed city, now more admirable than
Jerusalem, shall be a place more desolate than Jerusalem. The Dog shall
enter Germany but shall afterwards forsake his master and choose for
himself a new man, whereby Scripture shall be fulfilled. This Dog shall
signify the Turk which shall forsake his Mohammed and choose unto him the
name Christian, which is a sign that the day of Doom is at hand, when all
the Earth is subject unto God, or that all people acknowledge one only God.
The Fleur-de-Lys (Lily) and France shall live long at variance, but at last
agree. Then shall the clear Word spring forth and flourish throughout the
World."

"But after all these things the end of the world shall approach and there
shall be heavy and pitiful days."

Comment: The seven-headed city is probably Rome (septicolis- seven hills).
This is not the only prophecy that talks about the demise of Rome; others
talk that it will be so utterly destroyed that it will be threatened by
encroachment of the sea. The Dog here are often interpreted as being the
Turks. I believe this could also point to an Arab confederation of Islamic
countries. They will overrun the Middle East and, perhaps with Russian
backing, reach all the way to Germany, destroying Rome in the process. The
Dog forsaking his master refers to the conversion of the Islamic countries
to the Christian faith. The conversion will come after theyare driven out
of Europe by the Great Monarch, the French Prince that is oft referred to
in the prophecies.

Abbot Joachin Merlin (13th Century): "After man y long sufferings endured
by Christians, and after too great an effusion of innocent blood, the Lord
shall give peace and happiness to the desolate nations. A remarkable Pope
shall be seated on the Pontifical Throne under the special protection of
the Angels. Holy and full of gentleness, he shall undo all wrong; he shall
recover the Estate of the Church, and reunite the exiled temporal powers.
He shall be revered by everybody, the Eastern and Western Churches. The
sanctity of this beneficient Pontiff shall be so great that the highest
pontetates shall bow down in his presence. All men will return to the
primitive Church, and there shall be only one Pastor, one Law, one Master
-- humble, modest, and fearing God."

"Before being firmly and solidly established in the Holy See, however,
there will be countless wars and violent conflicts during which the sacred
Throne will be shaken. But through the favor of divine mercy, moved by
prayers of the faithful, everything will succeed so well that they shall be
able to sing hymns of thanksgiving to the glory of the Lord. In order to
obtain these happy results, having need of a powerful temporal assistance,
the Holy Pontiff will ask for the collaboration of the generous Monarch of
France."

Comment: Here we have a prophecy which tells us of the sanctity of the
Pope, more than likely Peter II, the last Pope. He will revered by all
world leaders and will rebuild the Church from its ashes, with the help of
the French Monarch. It will be under his See that all men will come to one
Church and one religion. Quite a feat, considering the myriads of religions
and the zeal with which some people adhere to their religion, but we must
bear in mind that these changes appear to occur after the great natural
upheavals and when the world population is much smaller than it is today.

Nicholas of Fluh (15th Century): "The Church will be punished because a
majority of her members , high and low, will become so perverted. The
Church will sink deeper and deeper until she will at last seem to be
extinguished, and the succession of Peter and the other Apostles to have
expired. But, after all this, she will be victoriously exalted in the sight
of all doubters."

Comment: A lot of prophecies foretell the collapse of the Church and it
tells that there will be no Pope for a time. The Church will destroyed,
Rome leveled (some prophecies hint that the destruction of Rome will be so
severe that the Seven Hills will be gone and Rome will be threatened by
encroachment of the sea). The French Monarch will aid in the rebuilding of
the Church during his reign though, and the last Pope will restore it to
its former glory.

Capuchin Friar (18th Century): "All priests, both secular and regular,
shall be stripped of their possessions and of every kind of property. They
will have to beg from lay people their food and everything necessary for
their support and for the worship of God."

"The Pope shall die during these calamities, and the Church will be reduced
to the most painful anarchy as a result. Much human blood will be shed in
Italy; many cities, towns, and castles shall be brought to ruins, causing
the death of many thousands of people. By the Catholic clergy and people
the true and lawful Pope will be elected who shall be a man of great
holiness and goodness in life."

"A scion of the Carolingian race, by all considered exctinct, will come to
Rome and behold and admire the piety and clemency of this Pontiff, who will
crown him, and declare him the Legitimate Emperor of the Romans. He shall
destroy the Ottoman Empire and all heresies. With the assistance of God and
of the Pope, he will cooperate with the reformation of abuses; he will
assume the direction of temporal government and he will assign a decent
pension to the Pope and also bishops and clergy. And they all will live in
peace which will last till the End of Time."

Comment: This prophecy talks about the death of the Pope, which will be in
exile, and the election of an anti-pope. The reference to the "true and
lawful Pope" may justify this interpretation. There are other prophecies
that are more explicit about the election of an anti-pope after the Pope
dies in exile."

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

No commentary on the future of the Roman Catholic Church would be complete
with a mention of the vision of Anna-Katarina Emmerick, however.

Blessed Sister Emmerick was an Augustinian nun. She was born in Germany in
1774, spent a life of sufferings, and died in 1824 in her native country.
She bore the stigmata of Our Lord.)

May 13, 1820: "I saw the relationship between the two Popes. I saw how
baleful would be the consequences of this false church. I saw it increase
in size; heretics of every kind came into the city (of Rome). The local
clergy grew lukewarm, and I saw a great darkness. Then, the vision seemed
to extend on every side. Whole Catholic communities were being oppressed,
harassed, confined, and deprived of their freedom. I saw many churches
close down, great miseries everywhere, wars and bloodshed. A wild and
ignorant mob took to violent action. But it did not last long."

"Once more I saw the Church of Peter was undermined by a plan evolved by
the secret sect, while storms were damaging it. But I saw also that help
was coming when distress had reached its peak. I saw again the Blessed
Virgin ascend on the Church and spread Her mantle [over it]. I saw a Pope
who was at once gentle, and very firm . . . I saw a great renewal, and the
Church rose high in the sky."

Comment: The prophecies of Emmerick seem to be very symbolic, much like the
Book of Revelations in the Bible. Here, Emmerick talks about the
relationship between two Popes, one the real Pope and one an anti-pope.
There are numerous prophecies that talk about two popes and a schism within
the Roman Catholic Church. She also talks about how the Church is
undermined by plans from within, from the clergy that are "lukewarm" about
their faith. Storms on the outside of the Church symbolize outside forces
working against the Church. She sees that in the end, the Church will be
led by a firm and strong Pope. This would probably be the Pope installed by
the Great Monarch as we saw earlier, Petrus Romanus.

September 12, 1820: "I saw a strange church being built against every rule
. . . No angels were supervising the building operations. In that church,
nothing came from high above . . . There was only division and chaos. It is
probably a church of human creation, following the latest fashion, as well
as the new heterodox church of Rome, which seems of the same kind."

"I saw again the strange big church that was being built there [in Rome].
There was nothing holy in it. I saw this just as I saw a movement led by
Ecclesiastics to which contributed angels, saints, and other Christians.
But there (in the strange big church) all the work was being done
mechanically (i.e., according to set rules and formulae.) Everything was
being done according to human reason."

"I saw all sorts of people, things, doctrines, and opinions. There was
something proud, presumptuous, and violent about it, and they seemed to be
very successful. I did not see a single Angel nor a single saint helping in
the work. But far away in the background, I saw the seat of the cruel
people armed with spears, and I saw a laughing figure which said: "Do build
it as solid as you can: we will pull it down to the ground.""

Comment: Here we see symbolism of another church being built in Rome. This
church is referenced in other prophecies and it is a symbol of a new
religion that takes shape in the future, one which accomodates nearly all
beliefs and does not follow the customs of the Roman Catholic Church. The
new religion becomes strong enough to have its presence felt in Rome.
Everything of the new religion is according to human logic and reason and
has nothing to do with heavenly design. There is also evidence of work
being done by devout Roman Catholics which is an effort to try and preserve
the ways of the Roman Catholic Church. Far away, presumably in the Middle
East or perhaps Russia, we see the 'seat of the cruel people', where a
laughing figure promises to tear down the Church of Rome.

July 12, 1820: "I had a vision of the holy Emperor Henry. I saw him at
night kneeling alone at the foot of the main altar in a great and beautiful
church . . . and I saw the Blessed Virgin coming down all alone. She laid
on the altar a red cloth covered with white linen. She placed a book inlaid
with precious stones. She lit the candles and the perpetual lamp . . . Then
came down the Saviour Himself clad in priestly vestiments. He was carrying
the chalice and the veil. Two Angels were serving Him and two more were
following . . . His chasuble was a full and heavy mantle in which red and
white could be seen in transparency, and gleaming with jewels . . .
Although there was no altar bell, the cruets were there. The wine was red
as blood, and thgere was also some water. The Mass was short. The Gospel of
St. John was not read at the end. When the Mass has ended, Mary came up to
Henry (the Emperor), and she extended her right hand towards him, saying
that it was in recognition of his purity. Then, she urged him not to
falter. Thereupon I saw an angel, and he touched the sinew of his hip, like
Jacob. He (Henry) was in great pain, and from that day on, he walked with a
limp . . . "

Comment: This is a remarkable vision about the Great Monarch, whom Emmerick
calls Henry. Here we see that he has a mandate from heaven and we also see
a description that he will walk with a limp, which many other prophets,
including Nostradamus, have pointed out. It is also remarkable to see that
Emmerick foresaw the changes of the Mass in that the Gospel of St. John was
not read. This was not changed until the Vatican II Council. The white and
red clothing symbolizes the purity of Christ and fire and blood of those
times. Henry is urged by Mary not to falter, for the enemies of the Church
are still to be defeated.

August to October 1820: "I see more martyrs, not now but in the future . .
. I saw the secret sect relentlessly undermining the great Church. Near
them I saw a horrible beast coming up from the sea. All over the world,
good and devout people, especially the clergy, were harassed, oppressed,
and put into prison. I had the feeling that they would become martyrs one
day."

"When the Church had been for the most part destroyed (by the secret sect),
and when only the sanctuary and the altar were standing, I saw the wreckers
(of the secret sect) enter the Church with the Beast. There, they met a
Woman of noble carriage who seemed to be with child because she walked
slowly. At this sight, the enemies were terrorized, and the Beast could not
take but another step forward. It projected its neck towards the Woman as
if to devour her, but the Woman turned about and bowed down (towards the
Altar), her head touching the ground. Thereupon, I saw the Beast taking to
flight towards the Sea again, and the enemies were fleeing in the greatest
of confusion. Then, I saw in the distance great legions approaching. In the
foreground I saw a man on a white horse. Prisoners were set free and joined
them. All the enemies were pursued. Then, I saw that the Church was being
promptly rebuilt, and she was more magnificent than ever before."

Comment: This is a very remarkable vision, considering that the description
of the Beast of the sea and Woman with Child are similar to the visions
given in the book of Revelation. According to Sister Emmerick's confidant,
she had never read the passage in Revelations. We see more of the secret
sect that undermines the Church from inside. The Woman here symbolizes the
Church. The Child she is carrying is a Pope who will set things right
again. The legions that we see coming are the armies of the Great Monarch,
who chases away the enemies of the Church and eventually sets the Church
back on course and helps the new Pope restore the Church.

August 10, 1820: "I see the Holy Father in great anguish. He lives in a
palace other than before and he admits only a limited number of friends
near him. I fear that the Holy Father will suffer many more trials before
he dies. I see that the false church of darkness is making progress, and I
see the dreadful influence that it has on people. The Holy Father and the
Church are verily in so great a distress that one must implore God day and
night."

"Last night I was taken to Rome where the Holy Father, immersed in his
sorrows, is still hiding to elude dangerous demands (made upon him). He is
very weak, and exhausted by sorrows, cares, and prayers. He can now trust
but few people. This is mainly why he is hiding. But he still has with him
an aged priest who has much simplicity and godliness. He is his friend, and
because of his simplicity they did not think it would be worth removing
him. But this man receives many graces from God. He sees and notices a
great many things which he faithfully reports to the Holy Father. It was
required of me to inform him, while he was praying, of the traitors, and
evil-doers who were to be found among the high-ranking servants living
close to him, so that he might be made aware of it."

Comment: This is about the Pope that precedes the one that we have just
read about. This penultimate Pope has much to suffer. Many prophecies speak
of a Pope having to leave Rome in exile. The new sect that is taking hold
in the world apparently makes a demand of the Roman Catholic Church which
many clergy, including the Pope, having much trouble in fulfilling. Here,
we already see the Pope living in a Palace other than St. Peter's.

August 25, 1820: "I do not know in what manner I was taken to Rome last
night, but I found myself near the Church of St. Mary Major, and I saw many
poor people who were greatly distressed and worried because the Pope was to
be seen nowhere, and also on account of the restlessness and the alarming
rumors in the city. These people did not seem to expect the church doors to
open; they only wanted to pray outside. An inner urging had led them there
individually. But I was in the Church and I opened the doors. They came in,
surprised and frightened because the doors had opened. It seems to me that
I was behind the door, and they could not see me. There was no office on in
the Church, but the Sanctuary lamps were lit. The people prayed quite
peacefully."

"Then I saw an apparition of the Mother of God, and she said that the
tribulation would be very great. She added that these people must pray
fervently with outstretched arms, be it only long enough to say three Our
Fathers. This was the way her Son prayed for them on the Cross. They must
rise at twelve at night and pray in this manner; and they must keep coming
to the Church. They must pray above all for the Church of Darkness to leave
Rome."

"She (the Holy Mother) said a great many other things that it pains me to
relate: she said that if only one priest could offer the bloodless
sacrifice as worthily and with the same dispositions as the Apostles, he
could avert all the disasters (that are to come). To my knowledge the
people in the church did not see the apparition, but they must have been
stirred by something supernatural, because as soon as the Holy Virgin had
said that they must pray to God with outstretched arms, they all raised
their arms. These were all good and devout people, and they did not know
where help and guidance should be sought. There were no traitors and no
enemies among them, yet they were afraid of one another. One can judge
thereby what the situation was like."

Comment: Here, we have more on the Church of Darkness that takes hold in
Rome. We also see that people will be worried because the Pope will no
longer be seen in public. Christians appear to distrust each other, perhaps
due to persecutions and people turning each other in.

September 10, 1820: "I saw the Church of St. Peter: it had been destroyed
but for the Sanctuary and the main Altar. St. Michael came down into the
Church, clad in his suit of armor, and he paused, threatening with his
sword, a number of unworthy pastors who wanted to enter. That part of the
Church which had been destroyed was promptly fenced in with light timber so
that the Divine Office might be celebrated as it should. Then, from all
over the world came priests and laymen, and they rebuilt the stone walls,
since the wreckers had been unable to move the heavy foundation stones."

Comment: This may not necessarily mean a physical destruction of the Church
of St. Peter, but perhaps it means a spiritual destruction of it, but it is
possible that it stands for both. The Church is reborn more powerful than
ever due to the work of the devout and faithful.

September 27, 1820: "I saw deplorable things: they were gambling, drinking,
and talking in church; they were courting women. All sorts of abominations
were perpetrated there. Priests allowed everything and said Mass with much
irreverence. I saw that few of them were still godly, and only a few of
them had sound views on things. I also saw Jews standing under the porch of
the Church. All these things caused me much distress."

Comment: I went to Mass recently and I noticed a lot of this is already
happening. People wearing shorts to church, speaking vulgarities, and the
priest didn't seem exactly into the whole idea of giving mass. Kids running
around and women wearing mini-skirts and tights and guys watching them
shaking their asses. I'm not a prude by any means, but I personally have
never felt that that was appropriate in church. I am not sure what
significance the Jews standing under the porch of the Church has, though.

October 1, 1820: "The church is in great danger. We must pray so that the
Pope may not leave Rome; countless evils would result if he did. They are
now demanding something from him. The Protestant doctrine and that of the
schismatic Greeks are to spread everywhere. I now see that in this place
(Rome) the (Catholic) Church is being so cleverly undermined, that there
hardly remain a hundred or so priests who have not been deceived. They all
work for destruction, even the clergy. A great devastation is now near at
hand."

Comment: Again, we see that the Pope may have to leave Rome in exile due to
the problems in Rome. Elsewhere, I have said that this may be due to civil
wars in Italy, but it may also have to do with the rise of the dark sect in
Rome. Apparently Protestant religions and the Greek orthodox churches
spread their faiths against that of the Roman Catholic Church during these
times. The undermining that goes on inside the Church, however, is
ultimately what does it in.

October 4, 1820: "When I saw the Church of St. Peter in ruins, and the
manner in which so many of the clergy were themselves busy at this work of
destruction -- none of them wishing to do it openly in front of the others
-- I was in such distress that I cried out to Jesus with all my might,
imploring His mercy. Then, I saw before me the Heavenly Spouse, and He
spoke to me for a long time . . . He said, among other things, that this
translation of the Church from one place to another meant that she would
seem to be in complete decline. But she would rise again; even if there
remained but one Catholic, the Church would conquer again because she does
not rest on human counsels and intelligence. It was also shown to me that
there were almost no Christians left in the old acceptation of the word."

Comment: It will seem to the world that the Roman Catholic Church will be
utterly destroyed. But she will rise again, more powerful than ever."

October 7, 1820: "As I was going through Rome with St. Francoise and the
other Saint, we saw a great palace engulfed in flames from top to bottom. I
was very much afraid that the occupants would be burned to death because no
one would come forward to put out the fire. As we came nearer, however, the
fire abated and we saw the blackened building. We went through a number of
magnificent rooms (untouched by the fire), and we finally reached the Pope.
He was sitting in the dark and slept in a large arm-chair. He was very ill
and weak; he could no longer walk. The ecclesiastics in the inner circle
looked insincere and lacking in zeal; I did not like them. I told the Pope
of the bishops who are to be appointed soon. I told him also that he must
not leave Rome. If he did so, it would be chaos. He thought that the evil
was inevitable and that he should leave in order to save many things
besides himself. He was very much inclined to leave Rome, and he was
insistently urged to do so. The Pope was still attached to things of this
earth in many ways."

"The Church is completely isolated and as if completely deserted. It means
that everyone is running away. Everywhere I see great misery, hatred,
treason, rancour, confusion, and utter blindness. O city! O city! What is
threatening thee? The storm is coming; do be watchful!"

1820-1821 (No precise date): "I also saw the various regions of the earth.
My guide (Jesus) named Europe, and pointing to a small, and sandy region,
He uttered these remarkable words: 'Here is Prussia, the enemy.' Then he
showed me another place to the north, and He said: 'This is Moskva, the
land of Moscow, bringing many evils.'"

Comment: This is interesting in that at the time of this prophecy, Moscow
posed absolutely no threat to anyone. It was only in the 20th Century that
Russia spread her errors. She may not be through yet. The mention of
Prussia is also interesting. There will be many problems in Germany during
and after the Great Disaster. Already we see a rise in hate-groups again in
Germany, such as Nazis and xenophobia against Turks. What's to stop it from
spreading against the Church during those times?

June 1, 1821: "Among the strangest things that I saw, were long processions
of bishops. Their thoughts and utterances were made known to me through
images issuing from their mouths. Their faults towards religion were shown
by external deformities. A few had only a body, with a dark cloud of fog
instead of a head. Others had only a head, their bodies and hearts were
like thick vapors. Some were lame; others were paralytics; others were
asleep or staggering."

"I saw what I believe to be nearly all the bishops of the world, but only a
small number were perfectly sound. I also saw the Holy Father-- God-fearing
and prayerful. Nothing left to be desired in his appearance, but he was
weakened by old age and by much suffering. His head was lolling from side
to side, and it dropped onto his chest as if he were falling asleep. He
often fainted and seemed to be dying. But when he was praying, he was often
comforted by apparitions from Heaven. Then, his head was erect, but as soon
as it dropped again onto his chest, I saw a number of people looking
quickly right and left, that is, in the direction of the world."

"Then I saw that everything that pertained to Protestantism was gradually
gaining the upper hand, and the Catholic religion fell into complete
decadence. Most priests were lured by the glittering but false knowledge of
young school-teachers, and they all contributed to the work of
destruction."

"In those days, Faith will fall very low, and it will be preserved in some
places only, in a few cottages and in a few families which God has
protected from disasters and wars."

Comment: Emmerick uses a lot of symbolism here. Heads like fog may mean a
wrong way of thinking. Heads with no bodies or hearts may mean people that
are knowledgeable, but cold and uncaring. Paralytics may mean people that
are unable to do anything. Asleep may mean that they simply do not know
what is going on.

1820-1821 (No precise date): "I see many excommunicated ecclesiastics who
do not semm to be concerned about it, not even aware of it. Yet, they are
(ipso facto) excommunicated whenever they cooperate to [sic] enterprises,
enter into associations, and embrace opinions on which an anathema has been
cast. It can be seen thereby that God ratifies the decrees, orders, and
interdictions issued by the Head of the Church, and that He keeps them in
force even though men show no concern for them, reject them, or laugh them
to scorn."

March 22, 1820: "I saw very clearly the errors, the aberrations, and the
countless sins of men. I saw the folly and the wickedness of their actions,
against all truth and all reason. Priests were among them, and I gladly
endured my suffering so that they may return to a better mind."

Comment: Again, we see comment that the clergy of those times are fallen
into worldly matters and do not care anymore about the Church.

April 12, 1820: "I had another vision of the great tribulation. It seems to
me that a concession was demanded from the clergy which could not be
granted. I saw many older priests, especially one, who wept bitterly. A few
younger ones were also weeping. But others, and the lukewarm among them,
readily did what was demanded. It was as if people were splitting into two
camps."

Comment: More on the fact that the Church is asked of a concession by the
dark sect that takes hold in Rome and throughout the world. It shows that
there will be a schism within the Church due to the demands and it will
ultimately split the Church.

January 27, 1822: "I saw a new Pope who will be very strict. He will
estrange from him the cold and lukewarm bishops. He is not Roman, but he is
Italian. He comes from a place which is not very far from Rome, and I think
he comes from a devout family of royal blood. But there must still be for a
while much fighting and unrest."

Comment: This is one of the many prophecies that speaks of a strong Pope,
who will rule "with a rod of iron" and set the Church on a straight and
holy course once again.

October 22, 1822: "Very bad times will come when non-Catholics will lead
many people astray. A great confusion will result. I saw the battle also.
The enemies were far more numerous, but the small army of the faithful cut
down whole rows (of enemy soldiers). During the battle, the Blessed Virgin
stood on a hill, wearing a suit of armor. It was a terrible war. At the
end, only a few fighters for the just cause survived, but the victory was
theirs."

Comment: This may be talking about the famous battle between the Great
Monarch and the invading forces (perhaps the Arabs) and his effort to drive
them out. The Christian forces will be greatly outnumbered, but they will
gain victory.

April 22, 1823: "I saw that many pastors allowed themselves to be taken up
with ideas that were dangerous to the Church. They were building a great,
strange, and extravagant Church. Everyone was to be admitted in it in order
to be united and have equal rights: Envangelicals, Catholics, sects of
every description. Such was to be the new Church . . . But God had other
designs."

Comment: A description of the new religion that takes hold. Nothing about
it is from Heaven and it is designed to accomodate man, not to worship God.

Re: P R O P H E C I E S for the Times Ahead
In conclusion, we see that Sister Emmerick had many visions regarding the
Catholic Church. From them we see the following:

There will be a rise of a new religion that will eventually encroach on
Rome itself, the seat of the Roman Catholic Church.

There will be problems inside the Church, as priests fall to worldly ideas.

The Pope will have much to deal with and will eventually have to flee Rome
due to problems in Rome, perhaps due to a civil disturbance there, the
approaching of armies, the installation of a new religion, or a combination
of it all.

The Church will appear to be destroyed.

Christians will be persecuted and will distrust each other.

The Great Monarch will drive out the dark forces that control Rome and
install a new and firm Pope that will set the Church on a true course.

The Church will be more glorious than ever.

Just another piece in the puzzle.....

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------


End of World War III and the new Age of Peace

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

As the Great Monarch comes to power, he is able to turn tide against the
Arab invaders. He gathers up an army under his holy guidance and is able to
conquer his foes, winning battle after battle against what appear to be
insurmountable odds. In the end, he re-establishes the Catholic Church and
chases the Arabs all the way to the Middle East itself. He reclaims
Jerusalem and apparently is able to convert the Muslims to the Catholic
Faith. With his foes defeated, a new age of peace is established, only to
be broken by the emergence of the Antichrist at the end of the reign of the
Great Gallic Monarch. The following list show his achievements in many of
his campaigns against the Arab forces.

* (Hilarion, 15th Century): "He will travel to Rome"
* (Nostradamus, 16th Century): "Shall make his sail spring forth"
* (Cataldus, 5th Century): "Greece he will invade and be made King
thereof." (St. Bridget, 14th Century): "He will restore the Church of
Santa Sophia (in Constantinople)."
* (Old Scottish): "He shall fight in Syria and win the Holy Cross."
* (Aystinger): "He shall recover the Land of Promise."
* (Telesphorus de Cozensa, 11th Century): "He will regain Holy Land
after terrible wars in Europe."
* (Cataldus, 5th Century): "He will conquer England."
* (Nostradamus): " ... will pursue Libyan race from Hungary as far as
Gibraltar."
* (Nostradamus): " ... away shall drive the strange race Arabic."
* (Pareus, 17th Century): "The Great Monarch ... will conquer the
(Middle) East."
* (Cataldus, 5th Century): "Cyprus, the Turks and Barbarians he will
subdue."
* (St. Bridget, 14th Century): "The Eagle will also invade the
Mohammedan countries."
* (St. Bridget): "He shall destroy the Jewish and Mohammedan sects."
* (St. Francis of Paola, 15th Century): "He shall destroy the Mohammedan
sect and the rest of the infidels."
* (Ven. Holzhauser, 17th Century): "The Empire of the Mohammedans will
be broken up (by him)."
* (Gekner, 17th Century): "He shall subdue to his dominion the
Mohammedan Empire"
* (Isidore of Seville, 7th Century): "He shall reign over the House of
Agar, and shall possess Jerusalem."

Comment: Agar was an Egyptian bondwoman in the service of Sarah, wife
of Abraham who was barren. She bore Abraham a son called Ishmael.

* (Liber Mirabilis, 16th Century): "He shall wrestle the Kingdom of the
Christians from Ishmael, and conquer it from the Saracens. None of the
Saracens shall be able to prevail."

Comment: Ishmael was sent back to Egypt with Agar his mother when
Sarah finally bore Abraham a son called Isaac. Ishmael is the ancestor
of the Arabic people; Isaac, the ancestor of the Ishraelites (or
Israelites). Both Ishmaelites and Ishraelites (or Ismaelites and
Israelites) are issued from Abraham. But the Ismaelites must be
regarded as inferior (despite current illusions about human equality)
for at least two reasons, (a) they are descended from a bondwoman who
was later sent away as unwanted; (b) God made an alliance with Abraham
and Isaac, his son. This does not mean, however, that the Israelis are
justified in dispossessing and driving out the Palestinian Arabs from
the land of their birth. As a matter of fact, the Israelites
repudiated their alliance with God the day they crucified Our Lord,
and what they are doing now, against both Christians and Arabs, shows
that the old Talmudic dream is being gradually implemented. In the
present Israel-Arab conflict, therefore, we have much sympathy for the
Arabs.

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

Not only does the Great Monarch spend a lot of time fighting the Arabs and
taking back European land, but he also re-establishes the Roman Catholic
Church and is aided by a great Pope, perhaps the last Pope, Peter II. His
works for the Church are enumerated as follows:

* (St. Methodius, 4th Century): "He will crush the foes of
Christianity."
* (Caesar, 6th Century): "He will assist the Pope in the reformation of
the world."
* (Merlin the Bard, 7th Century): "He will put out all heresies."
* (Merlin {cont.}): "The French King will restore the true Pope."

Comment: The fact that he uses the words True Pope might mean that
there is a false Pope at the Vatican as the French Monarch arrives in
Rome. There are other prophecies that state this as well.

* (A'Beckett, 12th Century): "He shall capture Milan, Lombardy, and the
three Crowns."
* (Magdeburg Chronicle): " ... by whom the decayed estate of the Church
shall be reformed."
* (Aystinger the German): "A Prince ... who shall reform the Church."
* (Abbot J. Merlin, 13th Century): "Having need of a powerful temporal
assistance, the Holy Pontiff will ask for the co-operation of the
generous Monarch of France."
* (Bishop Ageda, 12th Century): "By his means the nation's religion and
laws shall have an admirable change."
* (St. John of Capistrano 15th Century): "He shall restore the apostolic
discipline."
* (St. Francis of Paola, 15th Century): "He shall reform the Church of
God."
* (D. Pareus, 17th Century): "He will crush the enemies of the Pope."
* (Nostradamus): " ... giving the Church her pristine prominence."
* (Caesar): "The King of Blois raises again the Papal Tiara."
* (Vatiguerro, 13th Century): "This Prince shall help him (the Holy
Pontiff) in every way."
* (Premol): "(And I saw that) he placed his hand in the Pontiff's hand."

The rise of the Antichrist and the death of the Great Monarch

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

The Great French Monarch establishes his power and his influence over the
world. Under his guidance in state matters and of the Holy Pope in
religious matters, a new age of peace and prosperity is established after
horrific wars and terrible suffering. Many think that the worst is over,
but the worst is yet to come. Towards the end of his reign, an Arab Prince
rises up in Jerusalem to challenge the rule of the Great Monarch. He
performs many tricks and deceives the Jewish into believing that he is the
Messiah promised to them. Under his rallying cry, he is able to unite the
Jewish people and apparently many of the Arabs that have had their lands
occupied by the Monarch's troops and whom have fallen under his rule. The
Great Monarch comes to Jerusalem and he is slain by this Arab/Jewish
Prince, who is none other than the Antichrist.

With the death of the Great Monarch, the Antichrist is able to lead forces
through Europe quickly and is able to establish his rule. Details and more
prophecies follow below:

(( St. Caesar )): "O sweetest peace! Thy fruits will multiply
until the End of Time!"

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

As the Great Monarch establish his reign of peace, there arises a powerful
force in the Middle East that eventually defeats the Great Monarch. He is
the AntiChrist himself. Many details about his early life and rise to power
are listed in many prophecies. We will begin with prophecies that show his
origins and his early work.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Hippolytus )): "Christ arose from among the Hebrews, and
he (Antichrist) will spring from among the Jews. Christ showed
His flesh as a Temple, and raised it up on the third day; and he,
too, will raise up again the Temple of stone in Jerusalem."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Zenobius )): "Antichrist, the son of perdition will be
born in Corozain, will be brought up in Bethsaida and shall begin
to reign in Capharnaum, according to what Our Lord Jesus said in
the Gospel: "Woe to thee Corozain ... woe to thee Bethsaida ...
and thou Capharnaum that art exalted up to heaven, thou shalt be
thrust down to hell. (Luke, 10:13) Antichrist shall work a
thousand prodigies on earth. He will make the blind see, the deaf
hear, the lame walk, the dead rise, so that even the Elect, if
possible, shall be deceived by his magical arts. Puffed up with
pride, Antichrist shall enter in triumph the city of Jerusalem
and will sit on a throne in the Temple to be adored as if he were
the Son of God. His heart being intoxicated with arrogance, he
will forget his being a mere man, and the son of a woman of the
tribe of Dan."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Adso the Monk (10th Century) )): "Antichrist will be born of
Jewish parents, of the tribe of Dan, but his mother will not be a
virgin, as many believe. As the Holy Ghost came into the heart of
Mary, so will the devil enter into the mother of Antichrist, and
his diabolical power will always support him. Babylon will be his
birthplace, but he will be reared and instructed in Bethsaida and
Corozain. After his education at the hands of malignant spirits
he will go to Jerusalem and place his seat in the Temple which he
will have restored. He will submit to the rite of circumcision,
claiming that he is the Son of the Omnipotent God. His first
converts will kings and princes. His influence will extend from
sea to sea, largely through force and persuasive eloquence. He
will perform many signs and great miracles. Those who believe in
him will be marked on the forehead with a sign. For three and a
half years he will hold sway and, at the end of that period, he
will put to death Henoch and Elias, who will have previously
opposed him by preaching the true faith. Shortly afterwards,
Christ will appear, and Antichrist will be killed by Michael the
Archangel."

"And we beseech you, Brethren, by the coming of Our Lord Jesus
Christ and of our gathering together unto Him: that you may not
be easily moved from your sense, nor be terrified, neither by
spirit, nor by, word, nor by epistle as sent from us as if the
day of the Lord were at hand. Let no man deceive you by any
means, for unless there come a revolt first and the man of sin be
revealed, the son of perdition, who opposeth and is lifted above
all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth
in the Temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God." (2
Thess., 2:1-4)

(( Comment )): These passages show that Antichrist will be a
person, and by deductive reasoning, that he will be Jewish and
will gather the Jewish people. He will not be an atheist and will
assert that God does indeed exist. His contention will be that he
is indeed the promised Messiah for the Jewish and he will
proclaim himself as God.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Hippolytus )): "In every respect that Deceiver seeks to
make himself appear like the Son of God. Christ is king of things
celestial and terrestrial, and Antichrist will be king upon
earth. The Saviour sent the Apostles unto all the nations, and
he, in like manner will send false apostles. Christ gathered
together the dispersed sheep, and he in like manner will gather
together the dispersed people of the Hebrews. Christ appeared in
the form of man, and he in like manner will come forth in the
form of man."

(( Comment )): This passage shows that Antichrist will try to
emulate the work of Jesus and his life. He will send out false
Apostles and will perform false miracles. He will gather the
scattered Hebrews, or Israelis, and will incarnate as a man, not
an ideology or organization.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Lactantius )): "This impious man ... will give orders that he
himself shall be worshipped as God. For he will say he is Christ,
though he will be His enemy. That he may be believed he will
receive the power of doing wonders, so that fire may descend from
heaven, the sun retire from its course and the image which he
shall have set up may speak. And by such prodigies he shall
entice many to worship him, and to receive his sign on their
hands or foreheads. And he who shall not worship him and receive
his sign will die with refined tortures. Thus he will destroy
nearly two parts, the third will flee into desolate solitudes.
But he, frantic and raging with implacable anger, will lead an
army and besiege the mountains to which the righteous shall have
fled. And when they shall see themselves besieged, they will
implore the help of God with a loud voices and God shall hear
them, and shall send to them a Deliverer ..."

(( Comment )): Antichrist will force all to worship him and those
who do not will be put to death. The people that refuse the mark
may be the 144,000 people spoken of in the Bible. All this
correlates with Biblical Scripture.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Hippolytus )): "But many who are hearers of Holy Scripture
and have it in their hands, and keep it in mind with
understanding, will escape his imposture. For they will see
clearly through his insidious appearance and his deceitful
imposture, and will flee from his hands and betake themselves to
the mountains, and hide in the caves of the earth; and they will
seek after the Friend of man with tears and a contrite heart: and
He will deliver them out of his toils, and with His right hand He
will save those from his snares who make their supplication to
Him in a worthy and righteous manner."

(( Comment )): This goes right along with the previous prophecy.
The people who refuse the mark will have to hide and run for
their lives. They will pray for Deliverance and they will receive
it in the form of Divine Intervention. The Bible speaks of a
terrible wind that comes and sweeps away the armies that threaten
the faithful. Perhaps this is the Deliverer spoken of.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Hilary )): "Antichrist will teach that Christ was an
impostor, and not the real Son of God."

(( Comment )): Antichrist will blaspheme Jesus and his Divinity.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Lactantius )): "Nero will again reappear on earth as a
messenger and forerunner of the Evil One who is coming for the
devastation of the earth and the overturning of the human race."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Sulpicius Severus )): "One day we asked St. Martin of Tours
about the End of the World, and he said that Nero and the
Antichrist would come first. Nero would subdue ten kings and rule
in the countries of the West. A persecution he was to impose
would go so far as to require the worship of heathen idols.
Antichrist would first seize the empires of the East; he would
have Jerusalem as his seat and imperial Capital. Both the city
and its temple were to be rebuilt by him. His persecution would
require the denial of Christ's divinity (he himself pretending to
be Christ) and would by law impose circumcision on all. Finally,
Nero himself was to perish at the hands of Antichrist. In this
way, the whole world and its peoples would be brought under his
yoke, until, at Christ's coming, the impious imposter would be
overcome."

(( Comment )): Nero's mention is worth noting. Here it notes that
Nero will precede Antichrist and will rule the Western countries.
Antichrist's empire will come from the East. It is interesting to
note that it states that Antichrist will rebuild JERUSALEM and
the Temple. Perhaps Jerusalem will be in ruins because of a war
or a battle in the city? Hard to say, but with the turmoil that
has centered around the city as of late, it is not unlikely.
Another point worth mentioning is that Nero's rule of the western
countries does not contradict the earlier prophecies about the
Great French Monarch. Remember that he is killed by the
Antichrist. Nero may rise to power in Europe and, as pointed out
here, he will be "defeated" by the Antichrist and thus Antichrist
will unite his Eastern kingdom with Nero's Western and impose his
rule. More on all this later.

Re: P R O P H E C I E S for the Times Ahead
(( St. Irenaeus )): "He shall sit in the Temple of God as if he
were Christ, and leading astray those who worship him."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Hildegard )): "This accursed one is sent by the devil in
order to lead men into error."

(( Comment )): These prophecies show that his purpose will be to
confuse the religions and those that follow him will be following
the wrong belief.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Jerome )): "Antichrist will be born near Babylon. He will
win the support of many with gifts and money. He will sell
himself to the devil and thereafter will have no guardian angel
or conscience."

(( Comment )): This may show that his rapid rise to power is due
to lending his resources to his potential allies. But there is no
mistake that he will be doing the work of the Devil, even though
his works appear to be good by many.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Hippolytus )): "Dan, Moses said, is a lion's whelp; and in
naming the tribe of Dan he declared clearly the tribe from which
Antichrist is destined to spring."

"Dan shall Judge his people like another tribe in Israel. Let Dan
be a snake in the way, a serpent in the path, that biteth the
horse's heels that the rider may fall backwards." (Genesis,
49:17,18)

(( Comment )): These correlate with earlier prophecies that the
Tribe of Dan, one of the original 12 original tribes of Israel,
will be the one from which Antichrist comes from.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Hippolytus )): "He will call together the whole people to
himself, out of every country of the Dispersion, making them his
own, as though they were his own children, and promising to
restore their country and establish again their kingdom and
nation, in order that he may be worshipped by them as God."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Anselm )): "Antichrist will rule the world from Jerusalem,
which he will make into a magnificent city."

(( Comment )): More prophecy correlating with others about the
Antichrist being Jewish and bringing the Jewish people together.
They are the Dispersed nation now, but this could also mean that
they are dispersed once again when earlier, the Muslims invade
Europe, surely overruning the Middle East. This could be the
re-establishment of Palestine. Perhaps Antichrist will work to
win the favor of the Jewish people by re-establishing Israel and
rebuilding a destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Irenaeus )): "For when he is come, and of his own accord
concentrates in his own person the apostasy, and accomplishes
whatever he shall do according to his own will and choice,
sitting also in the Temple of God so that his dupes may adore him
as the Christ..."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Cyril of Jerusalem )): "Antichrist will exceed in malice,
perversity, lust, wickedness, impiety, and ruthlessness and
barbarity all men that have ever disgraced human nature. Hence
St. Paul emphatically calls him `the man of sin the son of
perdition, the wicked one, whose birth and coming is through the
operation of Satan, in all manner of seduction and iniquity.'(2
Thess., 2). Through his great power, deceit and malice he shall
succeed in decoying or forcing to his worship two thirds of
mankind; the remaining third part of men will continue true to
the faith and worship of Jesus Christ most steadfastly. But in
his satanic rage and fury, Antichrist will persecute these brave
and devout Christians during three years and a half, and torture
them with such an extremity of barbarity, with all the old and
newly invented instruments of pain, as to exceed all past
persecutors of the Church combined. He will oblige all his
followers to bear impressed upon their foreheads or right hands
the mark of the Beast and will starve to death all those who
refuse to receive it."

(( Comment )): Here we have evidence of the evil that this man
will be. The mark of the Beast doesn't appear to be any kind of
chip implanted under the skin or anything of the sort. It may be
just that-- a mark bearing the symbol of the Beast so that the
person wearing it will not be killed.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Hippolytus )): "And the churches, too will wail with a
mighty lamentation, because neither oblation nor incense is
attended to, nor a service acceptable to God; but the sanctuaries
of the churches will become like a garden-watcher's hut, and the
Holy Body and Blood of Christ will not be shown in those days.
The public service of God shall be extinguished, psalmody shall
cease, the reading of Scripture shall not be heard; but for men
there shall be darkness and lamentation on lamentation, and woe
on woe. At that time silver and gold shall be cast out in the
streets, and none shall gather them; but all things shall be held
an offence. For all shall be eager to escape and to hide and they
shall not be able anywhere to find shelter from the woes of the
Enemy; but as they carry his mark about them, they shall be
readily recognised and declared to be his. There shall be fear
outside, and trembling inside both by night and by day. In the
streets and in the houses there the dead shall lie; in the
streets and in the houses there shall hunger and thirst be; in
the streets there shall be tumults, and in the houses
lamentations. And beauty of countenance shall be withered, for
their forms shall be like those of the dead; and the beauty of
women shall fade, and the desire of all men shall vanish. But in
spite of all this, not even then will the merciful and benignant
God leave the race of men without some comfort; He will shorten
even those days to the period of three years and a half, and He
will curtail those times on account of the remnant of those who
hide in the mountains and caves, that the phalanx of all those
saints fail not utterly. But these days shall run their course
rapidly; and the kingdom of the Deceiver and Antichrist shall be
promptly removed. And then, finally, in the twinkling of an eye
shall the fashion of this world pass away, and the power of men
shall be brought to naught, and all visible things shall be
destroyed."

(( Comment )): In his insane drive to power, the Antichrist will
close all churches and execute anyone declaring themselves a
Christian and not following his doctrine and recognizing him as
the Messiah. Here it also mentions that the persecutions will
last three and a half years, half of seven, the number of years
that the Tribulation will last, according to the Bible. The first
three will probably be marked by temporal actions, such as the
taking of the European lands, the rebuilding of the Temple, and
they culminate when he seats himself at the Temple and declares
himself to be God.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Irenaeus )): "By means of the events which shall occur in
the time of Antichrist it is shown that he, being an apostate and
a robber, is anxious to be adored as God; and that although a
mere slave. he wishes to be proclaimed as a king. For he being
endued with all the power of the devil, shall come, not as a
righteous king, not as a legitimate king obedient to God but as
an impious, unjust, and lawless one; as an iniquitous and
murderous apostate; as a robber, concentrating in himself a
satanic apostasy, and setting aside idols to persuade men that he
himself is God."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Augustine )): "But he who reads this passage, even half
asleep, cannot fail to see that the kingdom of the Antichrist
shall fiercely, though for a short time, assail the Church before
the Last Judgment of God has introduced the eternal reign of
saints. For it is patent from the context that the time, times,
and half a time, means a year, and two years, and half a year,
that is to say, three years and a half. Sometimes in Scripture
the same thing is indicated by months. For though the word times
seems to be used here in Latin in an indefinite manner, that is
so only because the Latins have no dual, as the Greeks have, and
as the Hebrews also are said to have. Times, therefore, is used
for two times. It is a familiar theme in the conversations and
hearts of the faithful, that in the last days before the
Judgment, the Jews shall believe in the true Christ, that is, our
Christ, thanks to this great and admirable prophet Elias who
shall expound the Law to them. For not without reason do we hope
that before the coming of our Judge and Saviour Elias shall come,
because we have good reason to believe that he is now alive; for
as Scripture most distinctly informs us, he was taken up from
this earth in a chariot of fire. When therefore, he is come, he
shall give a spiritual explanation of the Law which the Jews at
present understand carnally ... "

(( Comment )): Interesting comments from St. Augustine. He says
that perhaps three and a half years might mean three and a half
months. He also correlates other prophecies by saying that Elias
(Elijah) will come down to preach the Gospel to the world and
that he will explain the Jewish law so that all may understand.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Benedict )): "During the three and a half years of
Antichrist's reign God will send Henoch and Elias to help the
Christians."

(( Comment )): Unlike Nero, mentioned earlier, Henoch and Elias
will come back on earth in person. But this is not a
resurrection, for their bodies were changed and taken to heaven
without going through death.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. John Chrysostom )): "Antichrist will be possessed by Satan
and be the illegitimate son of a Jewish woman from the East."

(( Comment )): This goes along with other prophecies that state
that Antichrist will be of Jewish descent.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Rabanus Maurus, private )): "Antichrist will heal the sick,
raise the dead, restore sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf,
speech to the dumb, raises storms and calms them, re-names
mountains, make trees blossom and wither at a word, re-build the
temple of Jerusalem, and make Jerusalem the capital city of the
world with the vast wealth of hidden treasures."

(( Comment )): Antichrist will seem like he will be able to work
miracles, but they will not be true miracles in the strict sense
of the word, like Jesus' miracles were. It also mentions about
his rebuilding Jerusalem and making Jerusalem the center of
attention all around the world.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Patrick )): "The ocean shall inundate Ireland seven years
before the End so that the devil may not rule over that people."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Columbkille )): "Seven years before the Last Day the sea
shall submerge Ireland in one inundation."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Nennius )): "The sea will come over Ireland seven years
before the day of judgment."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Leabhar Breac )): "The sea shall overwhelm Ireland seven years
before the judgment."

(( Comment )): Many prophecies make mention that Ireland will be
flooded and that the Antichrist will not have any power over it.
Many say that it will be seven years before the final judgement,
which basically means that it will be flooded at the time that
Antichrist rises to power and the Tribulation begins.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Maeltamhlacht (7th century) )): "In the latter ages
destitution will fall upon many people, and whenever the English
will commit great evils against the children of Eire, then the
English will be expelled and Eire become the property of her
rightful owners."

(( Comment )): This prophecy, which was made five centuries
before the English began to subdue Ireland, is given here merely
to confirm that ours are the Last Times, for Ireland is now an
independent nation even though the Northern part is still under
English control. Eire in the prophecy stands for Ireland.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Patrick (12th century) )): "Ireland will undergo English
oppression for a week of centuries but will preserve her fidelity
to God and His Church. At the end of this time Ireland will be
delivered and the English in turn must suffer severe
chastisements. Ireland, however will be instrumental in bringing
back the English to the unity of the Faith."

(( Comment )): This prophecy was made four centuries before the
Anglican Church was founded.

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

There are many more prophecies about the AntiChrist and they are found in
the next section. However, before moving there, you can see some prophecies
about the end of the Great Monarch.

(( Cataldus )): "He will at length lay down his Crown in
Jerusalem."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Bl. R. Maurus (9th Century) )): "He will go to Jerusalem, and
lay down his Sceptre and Crown on Mount Olive. Thus shall come
the end of the Christian Roman Empire."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( Monk Adso (10th Century) )): "He will finally go to Jerusalem
and lay down his Sceptre and Crown upon the Mount of Olives.
Immediately afterwards, Antichrist will come."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Augustine (5th Century) )): "He shall give up the ghost at
Jerusalem on the Mount of Olives."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Remy (5/6th Century) )): "At the end of his most glorious
reign, he shall go to Jerusalem, and shall lay down his Crown and
Sceptre on the Mount of Olives."

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

The Fall of the Antichrist and Judgement Day

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

The Antichrist continues his rise to power, performing many miracles and
extending his tyrannic rule, slaying all those that oppose him. His demise
begins with the appearance of Enoch and Elijah on the Earth, who begin to
preach against his works and perform miracles of their own. Enoch and
Elijah are slain by the Antichrist, who lets their bodies linger in the
streets of Jerusalem. After three days, their bodies are mysteriously
brought back to life and they rise to heaven. The Antichrist attempts to
follow after them, but is struck down and killed. 40 days later, the Final
Judgement apparently comes.

Now, it may seem to many readers that a lot of this has nothing to do with
the popular interpretations of the book of Revelations in the Bible. People
ask about this to me all the time. The thing is that the Bible describes
the events that come AFTER the rule of the Great Monarch and the events
that transpire during and after the rule of the Antichrist. Everything can
be applied here-- the fall of Babylon, the Beast with seven heads and ten
horns, the False Prophet-- everything. However, since the geopolitical
scene will be changed so much by the time that the Antichrist comes, it is
very difficult to make any sense of it and apply it to this scenario. That
is not to say it is not applicable, because it is. It just takes a very
deep understanding of what the world will be like when the Antichrist does
come to understand Revelations.

A final word before we proceed with the details of the end of the Time of
Troubles-- it is very easy for someone to pick up Revelations and apply it
to today's news. Many people say that Saddam Hussein could be the
Antichrist, that the United Nations is the Beast, and so forth. It is just
very funny to me how different interpretations vary with the times. In the
1980s, The Soviet Union was the vehicle for the Antichrist and the European
Union was the Beast. Before that, the Pope was the Beast. Before that, Ho
Chi Mihn was the Antichrist. Give me a break. I hope that if you have made
it this far with your readings that you have at least gotten the notion
that many things must pass before the time of the Antichrist.

And never forget that these are prophecies, not predictions. They offer us
a warning and they show that there is still time to avert and mitigate
these coming chastisements. If we all pray and help one another, this can
all be avoided.

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

The Antichrist's turning point in power and authority comes with
the emergence of Enoch and Elijah on the scene in Jerusalem. It
marks the downturn in his rule which eventually ends with his
demise:

(( St. Hildegard )): "Henoch and Elias are being instructed by
God in a mysterious manner in paradise. God shows them the works
of men as though they could see these with natural eyes. The two
men are therefore, much wiser than all wise men put together. The
same force which removed Henoch and Elias from the earth will
bring them back in a storm wind at the time when the Antichrist
will spread his false doctrine. As long as they will dwell
amongst men they will always be refreshed after 4O days. They
have the mission from God to resist the Antichrist and lead the
erring back to the road of salvation. Both men, distinguished by
age and stature, will speak to men: `This accursed one is sent by
the devil in order to lead men into error. We have been preserved
by God at a secreted place, where we did not experience the
suffering of men. We are now sent by God in order to oppose the
heresy of this destroyer. Look, if we resemble you in stature and
age.' And because the testimony of both shall agree they will be
believed. All will follow these two aged men and renounce heresy.
They will visit all cities and towns where previously the
Antichrist had sown his heresy, and through the power of the Holy
Ghost will work genuine miracles. All the people will be greatly
astonished at them. Henoch and Elias will confuse the followers
of Satan with thunder strokes, and destroy them and fortify the
Christians in faith. Therefore, the Christians will hurry to
martyrdom, which the son of evil will prepare for them like to a
banquet, so that the murderers will grow tired of counting the
dead on account of their great numbers; for their blood will run
like rivers."

(( Comment )): This correlates with other prophecies that tell of
the return of Enoch and Elijah and of the impact that their
testimony will have. This will enfuriate the Antichrist and he
will persecute anyone who is turned by them. Ultimately, he will
seek to destroy Enoch and Elijah.

(( continued... )) "Henoch and Elias have been taught much wisdom
and knowledge in Paradise while awaiting their return to earth.
God will instruct them every forty days while they are on earth.
They will receive exceptional graces and powers from God to use
against Antichrist."

(( Comment )): Enoch and Elijah will be able to work true
miracles through the grace that is laid upon them by the Holy
Spirit.

((continued... )) "When the fear of God has been disregarded
everywhere, violent and furious wars will take place. A multitude
of people will be slaughtered and many cities will be transformed
into heaps of rubbish.

The Son of Corruption and Ruin will appear and reign for only a
short time, towards the end of the days of the world's duration;
the period which corresponds to the moment when the sun has
disappeared beyond the horizon; that is to say he shall come at
the last days of the world. He will not be Satan himself, but a
human being equalling and resembling him in atrocious
hideousness. His mother, a depraved woman possessed by the devil,
will live as a prostitute in the desert. She will declare that
she is ignorant as to the identity of his father, and will
maintain that her son was presented to her by God in a
supernatural manner, as was the Child of the Blessed Virgin. She
will then be venerated as a saint by deceived people."

(( Comment )): Just as the Antichrist will profane the life of
Jesus, so will his mother profane the holiness of Mary.

(( continued... )) "Antichrist will come from a land that lies
between two seas, and will practise his tyranny in the East.
After his birth false teachers and doctrines will appear,
followed by wars, famines, and pestilence."

(( Comment )): The land between two seas could be a lot of
places, but it's likely to be the land between the Mediterranean
and the Red Sea, or the Mediterranean and the Sea of Galilee.
This is all pure conjecture, but other prophecies say that he
will be born in the Middle East.

(( continued... )) "His mother will seldom let any one see him,
and yet by magic art, she will manage to gain the love of the
people for him. He will be raised at different secret places and
will be kept in seclusion until full grown. When he has grown to
full manhood he will publicly announce a hostile doctrine on
religion. He will lure and attract the people to himself by
granting them complete exemption from the observance of all
divine and ecclesiastical commandments, by forgiving them their
sins and requiring of them only their belief in his divinity. He
will spurn and reject baptism and the gospel. He will open his
mouth to preach contradiction. He will say, `Jesus of Nazareth is
not the son of God, only a deceiver who gave himself out as God;
and the Church instituted by him is only superstition'. The true
Christ has come in his person. He will say, `I am the Saviour of
the world'. Especially will he try to convince the Jews that he
is the Messiah sent by God, and the Jews will accept him as such.
His doctrine of faith will be taken from the Jewish religion and
seemingly will not differ much from the fundamental doctrine of
Christianity, for he will teach that there is one God who created
the world, who is omniscient and knows the thoughts of man and is
just, who rewards the obeyers of his commands and the trespassers
he chastises, who raises all from the dead in due time. This God
has spoken through Moses and the Prophets, therefore the precepts
of the Mosaic laws are to be kept, especially circumcision and
keeping the Sabbath, yet by his moral laws he will try to reverse
all order on earth. Therefore he is called in Holy Writ the
`Lawless One'. He will think that he can change time and laws. He
will discard all laws, morals and religious principles, to draw
the world to himself. He will grant entire freedom from the
commandments of God and the Church and permit everyone to live as
his passions dictate. By doing so he hopes to be acknowledged by
the people as deliverer from the yoke, and as the cause of
prosperity in the world. Religion he will endeavour to make
convenient. He will say that you need not fast and embitter your
life by renunciation, as the people of former times did when they
had no sense of God's goodness. It will suffice to love God. He
will let the people feast to their heart's content so that they
will pity the unfortunate people of former centuries. He will
preach free love and tear asunder family ties. He will scorn
everything holy, and he will ridicule all graces of the Church
with devilish mockery. He will condemn humility and foster proud
and gruesome dogmas. He will tear down that which God has taught
in the Old and New Testament and maintain sin and vice are not
sin and vice. Briefly he will declare the road to Hell is the way
to Heaven."

(( Comment )): Here we have details of what he will do to rise in
power. He does not appear to be a military leader, but rather a
religious leader who will seek to gain power of countries and
nations under the banner of his religion. He will seek to
undermind the works of the Church and will succeed to a large
extent. The Jewish will accept him as the Messiah and he will
establish a new Law, not in accordance to the teachings. He will
abolish Christian churches and state that the road to salvation
is only through him. When this is refused, he will begin his
persecutions.

(( continued... )) "When the great ruler exterminates the Turks
almost entirely, one of the remaining Mohammadans will be
converted, become a priest bishop and cardinal, and when the new
pope is elected (immediately before Antichrist) this cardinal
will kill the pope before he is crowned, through jealousy,
wishing to be pope himself; then when the other cardinals elect
the next pope this cardinal will proclaim himself Anti-pope, and
two-thirds of the Christians will go with him. He, as well as
Anti-christ, are descendants of the tribe of Dan."

(( Comment )): This anti-pope does not appear to be Peter II, but
rather his would-be successor. It is not clear how Peter II dies,
but most prophecies indicate he will be holy and good and will
work with the French Monarch to re-establish the Holy See to its
former glory. After the death of the French Monarch, it appears
that Peter II also dies, perhaps they die together. Some
prophecies say he will be slaughtered by the Antichrist when he
invades Rome to re-establish the Mohammedan rule. The next
election is marked by the ascension of the anti-Pope, who will
hand-in-hand with the Antichrist to bring down the Church.

(( continued... )) "The mark (of Antichrist) will be a hellish
symbol of Baptism, because thereby a person will be stamped as an
adherent of Antichrist and also of the Devil in that he thereby
gives himself over to the influence of Satan. Whoever will not
have this mark of Antichrist can neither buy nor sell anything
and will be beheaded."

(( Comment )): I don't think the mark of the beast will be
anything more than a tattoo, but it doesn't rule out the
possibilty of a chip being installed under the skin for
identification.

(( continued... )) "He will win over to himself the rulers, the
mighty and the wealthy, will bring about the destruction of those
who do not accept his faith and, finally, will subjugate the
entire earth."

"The streets of Jerusalem, will then shine in the bright- est
gold with the blood of Christians which will flow like water.
Simultaneously Antichrist will try to increase his wonders. His
executioners will work such miracles when they torment the
Christians that the people will think Antichrist is the true God.
The executioners will not permit the Christians to win the
martyrs' crown easily for they will endeavour to prolong their
pain until they renounce their faith. Yet some will receive a
special grace from God to die during the torments."

"Antichrist will make the earth move, level mountains, dry up
rivers, produce thunder and lightning and hail, remove the leaves
from the trees and return them again to the trees, make men sick
and cure them, exorcise devils, raise the dead to life. He will
appear to be crucified and rise from the dead. All in all,
Christians will be astounded and in grievous doubts while the
followers of Antichrist will be confirmed in their false faith."

(( Comment )): Antichrist will produce such wonders that it will
be hard for Christians to remain faithful.

(( continued... )) "Finally, when he shall have converted all his
plans into action, he will gather his worshippers about him and
tell them that he will presently ascend toward Heaven. However,
at the moment of the ascension a bolt of lightning will overwhelm
and annihilate him. The planned ascent into heaven will have been
prepared by the artful employment of ingenious devices, and the
moment at which the event was to have taken place, leading to his
destruction, will produce a cloud that will spread an unbearable
odour. Through this many people will again come to their senses
and to understanding."

(( Comment )): In the end, when he has seemingly done everything
to show himself as the Messiah, he will seek to Ascend to Heaven.
He will be struck down in midflight and killed.

(( continued... )) "Then the people should prepare for the last
judgment, the day of which is indeed veiled in secrecy and
obscurity, but not far distant."

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( St. Mechtilda )): "After the two prophets, (Henoch and Elias)
are killed the greatest power on earth will be given to
Antichrist. Then they will set up cauldrons on the streets with
boiling contents, and drive the men who are known as Christians,
and their wives and children, there, to choose either to profess
in the Deity of Antichrist and thereby to keep their family and
be rewarded with riches and a home, or to profess the Christian
faith, and thereby, death in the boiling cauldron. Thereupon the
women and their children, who will choose to die for love of
Jesus, will be thrown into a pit of fire covered with wood and
straw and burnt.

Both men are in Paradises living in bliss and eating the same
foods which once Adam had eaten. They, too, must shun, in
obedience to God, the same tree from which Adam and Eve were not
to eat. This tree is not large; its fruit looks very nice and
lovely like a rose, in the interior, however, it is sour by
nature whereby is indicated the bitter evil of sin. God has
forbidden this fruit because it is very harmful to men and is
even now regarded as poison. An angel will accompany Henoch and
Elias from Paradise. The clearness and bliss which surrounded
their bodies will then disappear and they will receive again the
terrestrial appearance and will become mortal beings. As soon as
they will see the earth they will be frightened like people who
see the ocean and do not know how they can cross it. They will
eat honey and figs and drink water mixed with wine while their
spirit will be nourished by God. They will appear as preachers in
the last time of misery when most of the good men have already
died as martyrs, and they will console the people for a long time
yet. Henoch and Elias will close in on the Antichrist; they will
tell the people who he is, by whose power he works miracles, in
which way he came into the world and what will be his end. Then
many a man and woman will be converted.

Henoch and Elias will expose the devilish trickery of Antichrist
to the people. As a consequence he will put them to death. For
three and one-half days their bodies will be exposed to insults
and the followers of Antichrist will presume that all danger is
now past, but suddenly the bodies of the two prophets will move,
rise and gaze on the crowd and begin to praise God. A great
earthquake, similar to that at Christ's resurrection, will take
place: Jerusalem will be partially destroyed and thousands
killed. Then a voice from heaven will call out "Ascend,"
whereupon the prophets will ascend into heaven, resulting in the
conversion of many. Antichrist will reign thirty days after their
ascension."

(( Comment )): This prophecy talks about the works and miracles
that will performed by Enoch and Elijah. The fact that they will
be returning seems to be almost certain, considering the vast
amounts of prophecies that talk about this. They will seek to
evangelize and preach against the blasphemy spewed forth by the
Antichrist and he will seek to kill them. Their bodies will be
raised from the dead and he will seek to go after them when they
ascend into Heaven and will be struck down.

-------------------------------------------------------------​----

(( John of the Cleft Rock )): "This Prince of Liars will swear by
the Bible and pose as the arm of the Almighty, chastising a
corrupt age.

In the beginning he will work by cunning and crime. His spies
will infest the whole world and he will become master of the
secrets of the mighty. He will pay theologians to show that his
mission is from God.

A war will give him the opportunity to assume his true role -
this war will not be the one he will wage against a French
sovereign but one which will within a fortnight involve the whole
world and will be easily recognised by his mark on his
followers."

(( Comment )): Towards the end of his reign the Great Monarch
will have to wage a war against Antichrist. He will win it, but
will die shortly afterwards. It is likely that at this stage of
his rising power, Antichrist will not yet be known as such.

(( continued... )) "The Angels will enlighten men and in the
third week they will wonder if this is truly the Antichrist, and
realising that it is they will either have to fight to overthrow
him or become his slaves.

Antichrist will be recognised by various tokens: in especial he
will massacre the priests, the monks, the women, the children,
and the aged. He will show no mercy, but will pass torch in hand,
like the barbarians, yet invoking Christ! His words of imposture
will resemble those of Christians, but his actions will be those
of Nero and of the Roman persecutors. He will have an eagle in
his coat of arms as also his lieutenant, the other wicked ruler -
this latter will be a Christian who will die when cursed by the
Pope, who will be elected at the beginning of the reign of
Antichrist.

Priests and monks will no longer be seen hearing confessions and
absolving the combatants: partly because they will be fighting
alongside other Christians and partly because the Pope, having
cursed Antichrist, will proclaim that all who fight against him,
if they die, will go to Heaven as martyrs. The Bull, proclaiming
these things will rekindle the courage of the faint-hearted and
will cause the death of the monarch allied with Antichrist.
Before Antichrist is overthrown however, more men will have been
killed than were ever within the walls of Rome."

(( Comment )): This is the "Nero" referred to in earlier
prophecies. Nero will rule the West after the death of the Great
Christian Monarch of French origin.

((continued... )) "Never will humanity have been faced with such
a peril, because the triumph of Antichrist would be that of the
demon, who will have taken possession of his personality. For it
has been said that, twenty centuries after the Incarnation of the
Word the Beast will be incarnate in his turn and will menace the
earth with as many evils as the Incarnation has brought it
graces.

Towards the year 2000 Antichrist will be made manifest. His army,
will surpass in number anything that can be imagined. There will
be Christians among his cohorts, and there will be Mohammedan and
heathen soldiers among the defenders of the Lamb."

(( Comment )): The wickedness of the Antichrist is apparent
through this prophecy by John of the Cleft Rock. His rule will be
severe and he will all the appearances of a Christian, but his
actions will show him to be otherwise. He will lay the
groundworks of his rise by bribery of the clergy to proclaim him
as the Messiah. He will raise a mighty army and will attempt to
extend his rule over the world.

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

(( Richard Rolle of Hampole )): "The greatest opposition to
Antichrist will come from the preaching of Henoch and Elias whom
he will destroy after 1260 days. They will rise again after three
and one half days. The first fifteen days will be a reign of
terror. At the age of thirty-two and one-half years he will be
slain on Mt. Olivet, probably by St. Michael. The jubilation of
his followers will be suddenly cut short by a general slaughter.
Forty-five days for repentance will intervene before the Last
Judgment."

"After the destruction of Rome, Antichrist will appear and exalt
himself above pagan deities and the Trinity. His name signifies
one who is against Christ. Begotten, of a sinful man and of a
woman into whom the devil has entered, Antichrist will be born of
the tribe of Dan in the city of Corozain. The good angel assigned
to him at his birth will be obliged to leave him as witches,
necromancers and other disreputable characters take charge of his
education in Bethsaida. Coming to Jerusalem, he will proclaim
himself Christ and at first feign to be holy. He will succeed
through false preaching, miracles, gifts, terror, aided
throughout by the devil. An evil spirit will come out of the air
and descend upon his followers. He shall feign a resurrection
from the dead, cause rain to fall, stone images to speak, and
perform other wonders, all through the power of the devil. The
recalling of the dead to life will be only apparent; devils
entering the dead bodies will cause the illusion. Antichrist will
be the greatest tyrant of all time. His adherents will be marked
with his sign. Devils shall be let loose from hell. The Jews will
welcome him."

(( Comment )): This is more evidence backing up the claim that
Antichrist will have a known background. He is apparently born in
Corozain and raised in Bethsaida. His education will be by
witches and necromancers and his mother and father will be sinful
people. He will seek to exhalt himself about Christ and will
perform false miracles to gain followers. He will deceive the
Jewish people into thinking that he is the Messiah.

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

(( Prophecy of Orval )): "God alone is great. Much good has been
accomplished. The saints are about to suffer. The man of sin
arrives. He (Antichrist) is born from two bloods. The white
flower becomes obscured during ten times six moons, and six times
twenty moons (during about one hundred and eighty months), and it
disappears, nevermore to be seen."

(( Comment )): I've seen two interpretations of the above. One is
obviously wrong, and I include it here to show that prophecy
dating is a touchy subject:

((a)) 180 months = 15 years, i.e. the Great Monarch
will die in 2015 and his reign will then begin between
1980 and 1990. Antichrist will be born at that time
too. This one is clearly wrong.

((b)) 180 months can also be 180 years in prophetic
language. The last legitimate French Monarch ceased to
reign in 1830. 180 years later, in 2010, his successor
also will cease to reign.

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

(( Bernadine Von Busto )): "At the time when Antichrist is about
twenty years old, most of the world will have lost the faith."

"Antichrist will be descended from the tribe of Dan. The people
at that time will be very corrupt. He will preach to the people
while flying through the air. Many fervent priests and religious
in the wilderness and desert will be miraculously sustained by
God. Some of them will travel about to encourage the Christians
to remain firm in the faith till death."

"When a pious Christian is pleading to God for help before a
crucifix in his room, Satan will disturb him in his prayers and
confuse him. He will cause a voice to come from the crucifix
saying: `Why do you call on Me, as if I can help you? I am not
God nor the Saviour of the world, but a sorcerer, an instigator
and deceiver of the people, for I was a false prophet and as a
consequence I am damned to everlasting hell fire. Therefore, call
on me no more, lest by calling on me you increase the pain that I
must suffer in Hell. Through the power of Almighty God, whose
gospel is now preached throughout the world, I am urged and
compelled to tell you the truth and reveal to you that I am not
the son of God, but rather the greatest sorcerer the world has
ever had, and hence for all eternity I must suffer the severest
pains without hope of redemption.' Also the pictures of the
Mother of God at times will speak when someone will be praying
before them: `Cease your supplications. I am not the Mother of
God. I have no power with God. I am only a miserable creature.
You should take refuge with the true Brother of the Most High,
whose teachings are being taught to you today.' It will be the
same with the pictures of the Saints. That it is the devil who
speaks from the crucifixes and pictures but few will perceive, on
the contrary, many will run excitedly to the apostles of
Antichrist to accept the new religion. By order of these apostles
they will trample on the crucifix and holy pictures and break
them into pieces. "

"When a mother has her infant in her arms or puts it in the
cradle, in a clear and distinct voice it will begin to speak,
acknowledging the deity of Antichrist and urging the mother to
leave Christ and turn to Antichrist. The child will reproach the
parents, that they, in spite of the many miracles of Antichrist,
still persist in their wickedness and obstinacy. Oh how much
anguish will those parents have to bear! Yet many Christians will
remember that this was all foretold of Antichrist for centuries
past and perceive the fraud of Satan and refuse to be deceived.
They will stand firm and enlighten the faint-hearted and console
them."

(( Comment )): Much of the work of Satan will be done in the
latter days via possessions designed to undermine the authority
of Christ and to show that the Antichrist is supposedly the true
Messiah. This will shake the faith of many.

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

(( The Sibylle, Queen Michaula of Saba )): "As Henoch and Elias
will Preach against the Antichrist and draw many away from him,
he will, as soon as he perceives the damage, march towards
Jerusalem in order to prove there that he be the true Messiah and
God. He will kill both prophets in Jerusalem. Their bodies will
remain lying in the streets unburied, but on the fourth day they
will be resurrected by a voice from heaven, `Henoch and Elias
arise!' and ride to heaven in a cloud. Then the followers of
Antichrist will regret having believed him and will repent their
sins. Thereupon, Antichrist will make it known that after fifteen
days he will also ascend into heaven, so that no one can doubt
his divinity. On the appointed day he will majestically seat
himself on a beautiful chair, on Mt. Olivet, in view of a large
crowd and before all the people will lift himself up towards
heaven through the help of evil. But, here at the command of God,
the Archangel Michael will cast him down to earth by a stroke of
lightning."



-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

(( Ven B. Holzhauser )): "Antichrist will come as the Messiah
from a land between two seas in the East. He will be born in the
desert; his mother being a prostitute to the Jews and Hindus; he
will be a lying and false prophet and will try to ride to heaven
like Elias. He will begin work in the East, as a soldier and
preacher of religion when thirty years old. Antichrist and his
army will conquer Rome, kill the Pope and take the throne. He
will restore the Turkish regime destroyed by the Great Monarch.
The Jews, knowing from the Bible that Jerusalem will be the seat
of the Messiah, will come from everywhere and accept Antichrist
as the Messiah. He will be able to fly. His flight will take
place from Mt. Calvary. He will tell the crowd he is going after
Henoch and Elias (who has arisen from the dead) in order to kill
them again."

(( Comment )): Here we see that Antichrist will extend his reign
over much of Europe, apparently killing Peter II in the process.
He will re-extended the kingdom of the Turks that was vanquished
by The Great Monarch and will make Jerusalem the seat of the new
Empire. Everything here correlates with other prophecies.

(( continued... )) "The conception of Antichrist will be like
Christ's except that it will be by the devil instead of the Holy
Ghost. He will have the devil's power like Christ had God's."

(( Comment )): Antichrist will not be conceived by the devil in
the same way Our Lord was conceived by the Holy Ghost. But,
although of a human father, his conception will be inspired and,
so to speak, supervised by the devil himself.

Re: P R O P H E C I E S for the Times Ahead
"Antichrist will present himself to the Jews as the Messiah. They will be
his followers." (( 2 Thess. 2:9 ))

"Antichrist will have the powers of the devil from the beginning. He will
be so evil it would seem his father was the devil. He will inherit his evil
tendencies from his mother, who will also train him in evil.

His wife will be a Jewess but he will have many women, especially the
daughters of rulers. (( Dan. 11:27 )).

Antichrist's life will be a mockery of Christ's. He will be a convincing
speaker, have great knowledge, the gift of tongues (( Apoc. 13:5 )) and be
a child wonder at six or seven.

He will take the riches of the world to Jerusalem and appear to have power
over natural laws.

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

(( Dionysius of Luxemburg )): "Elias will cause the rain, dew and
snow to cease in those countries where the inhabitants oppose the
two prophets and refuse to reject Antichrist. The first land to
be so punished will be Palestine in order to win over the Jews."

"After Elias finds the `Ark of the Covenant' of the Jews, (hidden
until the recall of the Jews to God), he and Henoch will place
the Blessed Sacrament upon it. The Jews will then realise the
Jesus Christ and not Antichrist is the true Messiah. They will
desert Antichrist and make a pilgrimage to Mount Nebo (where the
Ark is found) bewailing the hardheartedness of their ancestors.
Thereafter they will accept the Christian faith."

(( Comment )): This is very interesting in light of the events in
the Middle East as of late. The Ark of the Covenant will not be
found by anyone except for Elias. He will place the Holy
Sacrament on it and that is what will make the Jewish people
realize their folly and turn away from Antichrist.

(( continued... )) "The Antichrist will kill Henoch and Elias and
leave them unburied. These will, however, be resurrected after
three and one-half days and ascend into heaven in a cloud in the
presence of their enemy. This miraculous event will actually
confuse Antichrist. In order that the nations will not abandon
him, he will lift himself with great majesty into space on Mt.
Olivet, with the purported intention to cast down the prophets
who have ascended into heaven. But in this moment Christ will
strike him down. The earth will open and swallow him and his
prophets alive. Then a large part of Jerusalem will fall into
ruins from the earthquake."

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

(( St. Zenobius )): "Then the Son of God, Our Lord Jesus Christ,
shall come in person. He shall appear on the clouds of heaven
surrounded by legions of angels; and, shining with glory, He will
put to death Antichrist, the Beast, the Enemy, the Seducer, and
all his followers. This shall be the end of time and the
beginning of the general judgment."



-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------


Conclusions and end thoughts

-------------------------------------------------------------​--------------

Here are the main basic conclusions we can draw from all this work. This
presents a general timeline of the way events *MAY* unfold. I caution that
this is not the dead-set way things will develop, but rather my opinion of
it. I may, and probably will, change this. Also note that I am not fixing
any dates to these events, but I do feel the general set of events is
accurate for the most part.

In the near future, we will see the situation in the Middle East worsening.
Violent clashes will result in a further rift between the Palestinians and
Israelis. The Arab world will begin to unite more as a military entity. Not
much will happen militarily in the region, however. A peace accord may be
signed where hostilities are ceased. Around the same time, we may also see
earth changes taking a turn for the worse. More violent weather, coupled
with volcanic eruptions around the world and severe weather. This all
supposedly coincides with the passing of a comet.

There are some prophecies that mention that the U.S. will be severely
affected by these earth changes. One possible scenario (this prophecy has
been made by several prophets and psychics) mentions the sinking of Japan.
Its sinking not only triggers a chain of volcanic events around the ring of
fire, but it also severely destabilizes the world economy. The U.S. is hit
by a similar calamity in California and also in the Midwest. Two severe
earthquakes shatter the west coast, ultimately leading to much of the west
coast slipping into the ocean. There are also mentions of a severe
earthquake in the Midwest, possibly in the St. Louis area (the strongest
earthquake ever measured, incidentally, was in the St. Louis area long
ago). This effect, along with the collapse of Japan, severely destabilized
the U.S. economy. The rescue effort becomes monumental and the U.S.'s
economy literally collapses in a day. Riots ensue as people panic. Banks
are closed. Many mention that martial law will be declared for a time and
that even the U.N. will occupy the U.S for a short time (around six months)
as racial and food riots get totally out of control.

The collapse of the U.S. and Japanese economy is heard around the world.
Riots break out in Italy, France, Spain, Germany, and England. The riots in
Italy will cause the Pope to flee Rome. He will be rumored to be dead, but
will in fact be in exile in France. Some prophecies mention that he will
travel all the way to Canada in hiding. The troubles in Germany and France
will be the most bloody since the French Revolution. In less than two days,
both the German Chancellor and French Prime Minister will be assassinated.
England will be wrought by civil disobedience.

I believe that it is after this that the forces will strike from the Arab
countries into Israel and subsequently into Europe. They may be able to do
so especially if the U.S. is crippled, such as a victim to earthquakes and
floods, as some prophecies seem to suggest. The suffering may be so great
in the U.S. that it will be powerless to stop the Arab attack. Another
reason why the Arabs may strike after this is due to the chaos that will
grip Europe at that time. Italy, France, Spain, and England will be gripped
in civil chaos, with England being the worst. The Arabs will most assuredly
run over Israel and are said to be able to roll all the way to Germany. It
will be at Germany that the tide will be turned, led by the Great French
Monarch. On their way to Germany, the Arab Islamic force will be able to
totally destroy Rome, and the destruction of Paris is also foretold,
although it is not clear as to whether the Arabs will have anything to do
with this. The French King will not be liked at first (he will have a
predecessor from Germany for a short time), but his zeal and holiness will
lead him to victory in the famous Birch-Tree battle.

While all this is going on, the Arabs may have the backing of Russian
forces. The U.S. does not seem like it will be involved in the skirmishes
at first, but the French King appears to have the backing of the U.S.
towards the end. During the beginning of his reign, he will drive the Arabs
all the way out of Europe and will go into their homeland to do battle with
them. He will liberate Jerusalem and defeat the Arabs, with the ultimate
goal of converting the Arabs to the Christian religion.

As far as the Popes, the Pope that flees Rome will die in exile, apparently
at Avignon. There will be much slaughter in the Vatican and after the
exiled Pope dies (a cruel death according to some prophecies), there
appears to be an Anti Pope, or false Pope installed, perhaps by the Arabs.
The French King will install a holy and true Pope who will bring the
Catholic Church back greater than it was ever before. The old Church
customs will return. This Pope may be Peter II, the last Pope in St.
Malachy's list.

The French King will rule for a number of years, and his reign will be
marked by peace throughout the world. He will rule side-by-side with the
new Pope and then the State will be the right hand of the Church. Towards
the end of his reign, new troubles will arise and he will once again travel
to Jerusalem, this time to be defeated by the Antichrist. It is then that
the Antichrist will reveal himself to the world. When the French King is
defeated, another leader takes the reins of his empire. This is the "Nero"
spoken of in so many prophecies. He will rule the European Empire left
behind by the French King. He will persecute Christians and he may indeed
be the Beast spoken of in the Bible. Antichrist appears that will rule the
Kingdoms of the East, mainly most of the Arab countries. He will come into
Israel and offer to re-establish the state and rebuild the Temple. He will
deceive the world and especially the Jewish people. He will seem to be
benevolent and kind, and the Jewish people will accept him as the Messiah.
He will defeat "Nero" and unite his empire with the European one and extend
his influence over the world. Once he rebuilds the Temple, he will seat
himself in it and proclaim himself as God. He will persecute all that do
not worship him. He will perform many seemingly miracles, he will make
statues talk, and all that worship him will be forced to take a mark on
their forehead or their right hand. Enoch and Elias will come to preach
against him and his falsehood. They will recover the Ark of the Covenant
and it will become apparent to many that Jesus was the Messiah. They will
flee into the mountains and be pursued by the Antichrist's forces. They
will be protected by God. In the end, Antichrist will kill Enoch and Elias,
and their bodies will lie on the streets for three and a half days. After
those days, they will rise back up and ascend to Heaven. Antichrist will
attempt to go after them, but will be struck down and killed. A few weeks
after Antichrist is killed, the Final Judgement comes.

Re: P R O P H E C I E S for the Times Ahead
in this great prophecy of St Hildegard we see...

The Great Nation here devastated by earthquake storm and tidal wave, is Usa (not still discovered the time of St Hildegard) and we see also the Great Comet (Destroyer) who
will kill the most of living creatures and will bring the 3 days of darkness..

"A powerful wind will rise in the north
carrying heavy fog and the densest of dust by divine command, and
it will fill their throats and eyes so that they will cease their
savagery and be stricken with a great fear. Before the comet
comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scourged by want
and famine. The great nation in the ocean that is inhabited by
people of different tribes and descent will be devastated by an
earthquake, storm, and tidal wave. It will be divided, and in
great part, submerged. That nation will have many misfortunes at
sea and lose its colonies. By its tremendous pressure the comet
will force much out of the ocean and flood many countries,
causing much want and many plagues. All coastal cities will live
in fear, and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves and
most living creatures will be killed, and even those who escape
will die from horrible diseases. For in none of those cities does
a person live according to the laws of God. "Peace will return to
the world when the white flower again takes possession of the
throne of France. During the period of peace, people will be
forbidden to carry weapons, and iron will be used only for making
agricultural implements and tools. Also during this time, the
land will be very productive and many Jews, heathens, and
heretics will join the Church."

Night of the Red Sky

Native American Prophesy

The Prophetic Visions of 'Grandfather'

from Tom Brown Jr.

In the 1920s, an Apache wise man had a Vision of four prophecies that foretold death and destruction for mankind, unless we incorporate Spirit in our daily lives.



Two of these prophecies may already have come true.



A number of people can predict the future, but few get the timing correct. "Grandfather" was an Apache wise man and scout, named Stalking Wolf, who grew up outside white man's influence. His many predictions not only came true in the manner he predicted, but also when he predicted.



Tom Brown, Jr. learned extensively from Grandfather for twenty years, from their first meeting when Tom was seven years old. Stalking Wolf was the real-life grandfather of Tom's best friend at the time. The following excerpt from Tom's book, The Quest, tells of Grandfather's predictions for all of mankind.



Looking back, I can clearly see that Grandfather's prophecies, unlike anything else, had the greatest influence on my life. At the time they had little more effect than to frighten me and cause me to sit up and take notice. It wasn't until after his prophecies began to come true that their haunting impact began to affect me in a very profound way.



More than any other person-prophet, religious leader or psychic-I have ever met, Grandfather's prophecies, on both a major and a minor scale, came true exactly at the time he prophesied and exactly as he prophesied. With that record, I could not help but feel the impact of these prophecies on my life.



Grandfather could foretell the future with tremendous accuracy. Not only could he precisely tell us what would happen in the next moment, day, week or year, but with the same accuracy he could predict the possible futures for ten years and more away. It was not long before I began to keep detailed records of his predictions, along with other notes I kept on survival skills, tracking, awareness and things of the Spirit. I received from Grandfather hundreds of personal, minor predictions, and well over half have since come true. Along with the minor personal prophecies was a list of 103 major predictions, of which, to date, over 65 have become absolutely true, not only in time and place but also in the exact order in which they were predicted to happen.



Grandfather said that there was not future, only possible futures. The 'now' was like the palm of a hand, with each finger being the possible future, and, as always, one of the futures was always the most powerful, the way that the main course of events would surely take us. Thus his predictions were of the possible future, which meant that he always left a choice.



"If a man could make the right choices," he said, "then he could significantly alter the course of the possible future. No man, then, should feel insignificant, for it only takes one man to alter the consciousness of mankind through the Spirit-that-moves-in-all-things. In essence, one thought influences another, then another, until the thought is made manifest throughout all of Creation. It is the same thought, the same force, that causes an entire flock of birds to change course, as the flock then has one mind."



Out of all the personal and major prophecies that Grandfather foretold, there are four that stand out above all the rest. It is these four that mark the destruction of man and life on Earth, as we know it to exist now. Yet Grandfather said that we could still change things, even after the first two prophecies came true, but that there could be no turning back after the third.



Now that we have gone well past the second prophecy, danger and destruction are very apparent, and our only recourse is to work harder to change what has possibly become the inevitable. The urgency that I feel-now, more than ever-is a direct result of the second, impossible prophecy coming true. It is the reason that I teach, sometimes with a certain desperation, and constantly with the sense that we are quickly running out of time.



I should have worked harder and with that same desperation at a much earlier date, but, like the rest of mankind, it took a strong message to get me motivated. I should have known that these things he prophesied would some day come true, because his personal, minor predictions were coming true daily.



He so accurately foretold of Rick's death on a white horse, that I would some day teach, that I would have a son-and that taking him into the Pine Barrens for the first time would forever change my life. He predicted the formation of my school, my books, my family, and even the horrible mistakes I would make as I tried to live within society.



Yet with all of this coming true on a daily basis, I simply would not believe or accept that the major prophecy of man's destruction would come true, and its reality hit me hard. It was then that the urgency made itself known.



I remember so vividly the "night of the four prophecies"-as I have become accustomed to calling that night when Grandfather first made us aware of their possibility. We had been with Grandfather for five years at the time and were accustomed to his prophecies and their accuracy.



Our ability to understand the things of the Spirit world were as sure as our ability to survive and track. Very little of what society calls "the paranormal" shocked us any more, because miracles were part of our everyday existence. Grandfather was a living miracle, and so many of the things that he did on a daily basis, sometimes unconsciously, would be considered miraculous by most. Yet as savvy as we were spiritually, the night of the four prophecies shocked us like nothing we had ever experienced before.



We had been hiking all day without much of a break, making our way to a place where we were going to camp, atop a small hill that I now call Prophecy Hill. It was a typical midsummer hike: hot, humid and dusty, with no water available along our entire travel route. As usual, we still took time to stop frequently or take side trips to explore various areas along our route. The adventure and exploration kept us fresh and eager, making the fatigue, heat and thirst hardly factors.



Many times along the way, Grandfather would stop and teach us-not physical lessons of survival, tracking or awareness, but lessons dealing with the awareness of Spirit. Very often he would discuss the future and, almost as frequently, the past-the distant past.



At one point we stopped along the deer trail we were travelling and followed Grandfather through some heavy brush. The trees and shrubs were far different than those throughout the rest of the Pine Barrens, and I immediately knew this place as an old homestead or town of some sort. Even though the buildings had long since rotted away, the plants and trees still marked the spot where civilisation had once stood. Passing through several very thick areas, we finally entered a grove of very tall, old sycamore trees. From their branches and up their trunks ran huge vines, the kind one might imagine finding in a jungle. In fact, the whole place looked like a jungle-so out of place from the pine, oak and blueberry that is typical in the Pine Barrens. As we sat down, a deeper spiritual sense of awareness came over me, and it was then that I noticed the gravestones.



This was the place of a very old and probably long-forgotten cemetery, possibly belonging to the town that had once been here. The stones were old; some lay flat on the ground and others stood upright, though none was straight. Plants and bushes had overrun many of the stones, and I could barely make out the markings on the stones. The weathering process had worn away many of the names and dates, making them barely readable.



At once we were in awe, humbled and reverent in this place of death; at the same time, we were amazed that Grandfather had found it so easily. To my knowledge, none of us had been there before, nor had Grandfather ever spoken of this graveyard. Yet for some reason he seemed to be drawn to it, knowing that it was there on some unseen spiritual level, at least unseen to us. I suspect now, as I look back, that he knew that it would become a teaching lesson for us.



He walked over to a gravestone that was partially hidden by foxgrape vines and gently pulled them away. After a long moment, he motioned us to come over. We could barely make out the name on the grave or the dates, but at the bottom was carved clearly: "12 years old".



Grandfather then spoke. "Who are these people; who is this boy? What did they work for and what were their hopes, dreams and visions? Did they just work physically or did they work for the things beyond the flesh, for a grander purpose? Certainly they affected the Spirit-that-moves-in-all-things, but did they really work to the best of their ability to make things better for the future of their grandchildren, or did they do nothing other than to perpetuate the myth of society? Were they happy, joyous and filled with spiritual rapture, or did they just lead lives of labour and mediocrity? And did this boy live close to the Earth and the Creator, or did he just give up his youth, his sense of adventure, to toil, as did his parents and their parents before them? This boy was exactly your age, and I suspect he had hopes and dreams much like yours. But this is his legacy, lying in a forgotten grave."



"But, Grandfather," I said, "isn't it enough just to be happy and live your life fully?"



After a long moment of silence, Grandfather answered. "It is not enough that man be just happy in the flesh, but he must also be happy and joyous in spirit. For without spiritual happiness and rapture, life is shallow. Without seeking the things of the Spirit, life is half lived and empty. And by spiritual life I do not mean just setting aside one hour of one day of one week for worship, but to seek the things of the spirit every moment of every day. I ask you, then: What did these people do to seek spiritual enlightenment and rapture? Did they just give in to a life that was little more than work? They were given a choice every day of their lives-as you will be given a choice to seek the rapture of the Spirit or to resign yourselves to a life of meaningless work. The end result is always the same: forgotten graves and forgotten dreams of forgotten people. It is not important that anyone notice or remember, but that you work to touch God and affect in a positive way the consciousness of the Spirit-that-moves-in-all-things, thus bringing the consciousness of man closer to the Creator."



We left the graveyard without a word and headed up to the campsite on the hill. By the time we reached the camp, it had cooled off and the Sun had long since set. As we built shelters and a fire and gathered food, time seemed to fly by unnoticed, as my mind was thoroughly engrossed in thoughts of the lessons in the graveyard. I wondered how much I might be like that nameless dead boy in that forgotten grave. Was I just seeking the flesh and not working hard enough in the things of the Spirit?



It was then that I realized the deeper lessons of what Grandfather was trying to teach me. I realized then that I should live life as if I were to die tomorrow, for that is what happened to that young boy. No one can be assured of another day, but we must live each day fully, in flesh and most of all in Spirit. It isn't important that anyone remember who we were, but that we made a positive change in the consciousness of the Spirit-that-moves-in-all-things, the life force of the Earth, and, in doing so, find spiritual rapture and touch the Creator.



I sat by the fire after the work was done, relaxing, still deep in thought about the boy in the graveyard. Grandfather sat at the far end of the fire, his eyes closed, but I suspected that he was not sleeping. In the firelight, his features appeared more that of a spirit than of flesh. Quietly he leaned forward and answered the many questions I had on my mind. At times, his ability to know what was on my mind was unnerving, sometimes making me angry to think that he could know my thoughts.



"Did you ever watch a flock of sandpipers on the beach, how they ebb and flow with the tides, becoming at times not a gathering of individual animals but one organism, moving as a unit together along the surf? When they burst into flight, their cohesiveness is even more startling and wondrous. At once they all will be flying in a certain direction, and then in an instant the entire flock will turn simultaneously and take a new direction.



"Studied closely, there is no one bird that makes the decision to turn, but it seems to be a Spirit, a collective consciousness, that runs through the flock instantly. When viewed from afar, the flock appears to be one animal, one organism, one consciousness, governed by the collective force and spirit of all the individuals. It is this same consciousness that runs through man, Nature and the Earth-that which we call the 'Spirit-that-moves-in-all-things', or the 'life force'.



"I suspect," he continued, "that it is but one bird that creates the thought that turns the flock, and the one thought becomes immediately manifested in all the others. The individual then transcends self and becomes one with the whole. Thus, at once, the bird moves within the flock and the flock moves within the bird. So, then, do not ask what you can do to affect the life force in a positive way, for the same Spirit that moves within the birds also moves within you. One person, one idea, one thought can turn the flock of society away from the destructive path of modern times. It is not a question as to whether we make a difference, for we all make a difference, each of us in our own way. It is the difference we make that is important."



"So if we live a life that is close to the Spirit, seek the spiritual rapture of oneness, that will affect the outcome of life," I said. My statement was more a question than a declaration.



"It is not enough," Grandfather said, "just to seek the things of the Spirit on a personal level. To do so is selfish, and those who just seek the spiritual realms for themselves are not working to change the Spirit that moves through the consciousness of man. Instead they are running away, hiding from their responsibility and using their wisdom for their own glorification. Spiritual man must then work for a principle, a cause, a Quest far greater than the glorification of self, in order to affect the spirit that can change the course of man's destruction."



I sat for a long time in the quietude of the night, trying desperately to understand what Grandfather had told me. In essence, it was not enough to work for spiritual enlightenment for self, but to work for the spiritual enlightenment of all of mankind. To work only for self, to cloister oneself in the seeking of spiritual rapture, is to run from this responsibility. What Grandfather was saying is that a spiritual person must take the wisdom and philosophy of the Earth and bring it back into modern society.



Grandfather spoke again. "Trying to live a spiritual life in modern society is the most difficult path one can walk. It is a path of pain, of isolation and of shaken faith, but that is the only way that our Vision can become reality. Thus the true Quest in life is to live the philosophy of the Earth within the confines of man. There is no church or temple we need to seek peace, for ours are the temples of the wilderness. There are no spiritual leaders, for our hearts and the Creator are our only leaders. Our numbers are scattered; few speak our language or understand the things that we live. Thus we walk this path alone, for each Vision, each Quest, is unique unto the individual. But we must walk within society or our Vision dies, for a man not living his Vision is living death."



For a long time there was no other conversation. I retired into my own thoughts and doubts. I did not want to live within society, for the wilderness was my home, my love, my life and my spiritual rapture. I could not see why a man could not live his Vision in the purity of wilderness, away from the distractions of society. I could feel no urgency or see any reason why I should take what I have learned back to society.



Grandfather's voice shattered my thoughts. "The Earth is dying. The destruction of man is close, so very close, and we must all work to change that path of destruction. We must pay for the sins of our grandfathers and grandmothers, for we have long been a society that kills its grandchildren to feed its children. There can be no rest, and we cannot run away; far too many in the past have run away. It is very easy to live a spiritual life away from man, but the truth of Vision in spiritual life can only be tested and become a reality when lived near society."



"How do I know that we are so close to that destruction?" I asked.



"I had a Vision," Grandfather said. "It was a Vision of the destruction of man. But man was given four warnings to that destruction, two of which gave man a chance to change his ways and two of which would give the children of the Earth time to escape the Creator's wrath."



"How will I know these warnings, these signs?" I asked.

Red Sky Prophecy - Part 2 of 2

by Tom Brown Jr.





Grandfather continued. "They will be obvious to you and those who have learned to listen to the Spirit of the Earth; but to those who live within the flesh and know only flesh, there is no knowing or understanding. When these signs, these warnings and prophecies, are made manifest, then you will understand the urgency of what I speak. Then you will understand why people must not just work for their own spiritual rapture but to bring that rapture to the consciousness of modern man."


The Four Signs



Grandfather had been wandering for several years and was well into his forties when the Vision of the four signs was given to him. He had just finished his third Vision Quest at the Eternal Cave when the Vision made itself known. He had been seated at the mouth of the cave, awaiting the rising Sun, when the spirit of the warrior appeared to him. He felt as if he were in a state somewhere between dream and reality, sleep and wakefulness, until the spirit finally spoke and he knew that it was not his imagination. The spirit called Grandfather's name and beckoned him to follow.



As Grandfather stood, he was suddenly transported to another world. Again, he thought that he was dreaming, but his flesh could feel the reality of this place; his senses knew that this was a state of abject reality, but in another time and place.



The spirit warrior spoke to Grandfather. "These are the things yet to come that will mark the destruction of man. These things you may never see, but you must work to stop them and pass these warnings on to your grandchildren. They are the possible futures of what will come if man does not come back to the Earth and begin to obey the laws of Creation and the Creator. There are four signs, four warnings, that only the children of the Earth will understand. Each warning marks the beginning of a possible future, and as each warning becomes reality, so too does the future it marks."



With that, the spirit warrior was gone and Grandfather was left alone in this strange, new world.


The First Sign



The world he was in was like nothing he had ever known. It was a dry place with little vegetation. In the distance he saw a village, yet it was made out of tents and cloth rather than from the materials of the Earth. As he drew closer to the village, the stench of death overwhelmed him and he grew sick. He could hear children crying, the moaning of elders and the sounds of sickness and despair. Piles of bodies lay in open pits awaiting burial, their contorted faces and frail frames telling of death from starvation. The bodies appeared more like skeletons than flesh, and children, adults and elders all looked the same, their once dark-brown complexions now ash-grey. As Grandfather entered the village, the horror of living starvation struck him deeper. Children could barely walk, elders lay dying, and everywhere were the cries of pain and fear. The stench of death and the sense of hopelessness overwhelmed Grandfather, threatening to drive him from the village.



It was then that an elder appeared to Grandfather, at first speaking in a language that he could not understand. Grandfather realized, as the elder spoke, that he was the spirit of a man-a man no longer of flesh, but a man who had once walked a spiritual path, possibly a shaman of this tribe. It was then that he understood what the old one was trying to tell him.



The elder spoke softly. "Welcome to what will be called the 'land of starvation'. The world will one day look upon all of this with horror and will blame the famine on the weather and the Earth. This will be the first warning to the world that man cannot live beyond the laws of Creation, nor can he fight Nature. If the world sees that it is to blame for this famine, this senseless starvation, then a great lesson will be learned. But I am afraid that the world will not blame itself, but that the blame will be placed on Nature. The world will not see that it created this place of death by forcing these people to have larger families. When the natural laws of the land were broken, the people starved, as Nature starves the deer in winter when their numbers are too many for the land to bear."



The old one continued. "These people should have been left alone. They once understood how to live with the Earth, and their wealth was measured in happiness, love and peace. But all of that was taken from them when the world saw theirs as a primitive society. It was then that the world showed them how to farm and live in a less primitive way. It was the world that forced them to live outside the laws of Creation and, as a result, is now forcing them to die."



The old man slowly began to walk away, back to the death and despair. He turned one last time to Grandfather, and said: "This will be the first sign. There will come starvation before and after this starvation, but none will capture the attention of the world with such impact as does this one. The children of the Earth will know the lessons that are held in all of this pain and death, but the world will only see it as drought and famine, blaming Nature instead of itself."



With that, the old one disappeared, and Grandfather found himself back at the mouth of the Eternal Cave.



Grandfather lay back on the ground, thinking about what he had witnessed. He knew that it had been a Vision of the possible future and that the spirit of the warrior had brought him to it to teach him what could happen. Grandfather knew that people all over the Earth were now starving-but why was this starvation so critical, so much more important than all the rest, even more important than the starvation that was taking place now?



It was then that Grandfather recalled that the tribal elder had said that the entire world would take notice, but that the world would not learn the lessons of what the death and famine were trying to teach. The children would die in vain.



Grandfather looked out across the barren land that surrounded the Eternal Cave to try to re-establish the reality of his 'now'. He said that it was still hard to discern between waking reality and the world of Vision, but he felt that he was back into his time and place.



He told me that the Eternal Cave was always a place to find Visions of the possible and probable futures, and it was not uncommon for the searcher to have a Vision at the mouth of the cave, not just inside.



In a state of physical and emotional exhaustion, Grandfather fell into a deep sleep, but it was in this sleep that the warrior spirit appeared to him again and brought the remainder of the first sign to completion.



In his dream, the spirit spoke to Grandfather. "It is during the years of the famine, the first sign, that man will be plagued by a disease, a disease that will sweep the land and terrorize the masses. The white coats [doctors/scientists] will have no answers for the people, and a great cry will arise across the land. The disease will be born of monkeys, drugs and sex. It will destroy man from inside, making common sickness a killing disease. Mankind will bring this disease upon himself as a result of his life, his worship of sex and drugs, and a life away from Nature. This, too, is a part of the first warning; but, again, man will not heed this warning and he will continue to worship the false gods of sex and the unconscious spirit of drugs." [Author's note: This is presumably a reference to AIDS.]



The spirit continued. "The drugs will produce wars in the cities of man, and the nations will arise against those wars, arise against that killing disease. But the nations will fight in the wrong way, lashing out at the effect rather than the cause. It will never win these wars until the nation, until society, changes its values and stops chasing the gods of sex and drugs. It is then, in the years of the first sign, that man can change the course of the probable future. It is then that he may understand the greater lessons of the famine and the disease. It is then that there can still be hope. But once the second sign of destruction appears, the Earth can no longer be healed on a physical level. Only a spiritual healing can then change the course of the probable futures of mankind."



With that, the warrior spirit let Grandfather fall into a deep and dreamless sleep, allowing him to rest fully before any more Vision was wrought upon him.


The Second Sign



Grandfather awoke at the entrance of the cave once again, the memory of the warrior spirit still vivid in his mind, the spirit's words becoming part of his soul.



When Grandfather looked out across the landscape, all had changed. The landscape appeared drier; there was no vegetation to be seen, and animals lay dying. A great stench of death arose from the land, and the dust was thick and choking, the intense heat oppressive. Looking skyward, the Sun seemed to be larger and more intense; no birds or clouds could be seen, and the air seemed thicker still. It was then that the sky seemed to surge and huge holes began to appear. The holes tore with a resounding, thunderous sound, and the very Earth, rocks and soil shook.



The skin of the sky seemed to be torn open like a series of gaping wounds, and through these wounds seeped a liquid that seemed like the oozing of an infection, a great sea of floating garbage, oil and dead fish. It was through one of these wounds that Grandfather saw the floating bodies of dolphins, accompanied by tremendous upheavals of the Earth and violent storms. As he held fast to the trembling Earth, his eyes fell from the sky, and all about him, all at once, was disaster. Piles of garbage reached to the skies, forests lay cut and dying, coastlines were flooded and storms grew more violent and thunderous. With each passing moment, the Earth shook with greater intensity, threatening to tear apart and swallow Grandfather.



Suddenly the Earth stopped shaking and the sky cleared. Out of the dusty air walked the warrior spirit, who stopped a short distance from Grandfather. As Grandfather looked into the face of the spirit, he could see that there were great tears flowing from his eyes, and each tear fell to the Earth with a searing sound.



The spirit looked at Grandfather for a long moment, then finally spoke. "Holes in the sky."



Grandfather thought for a moment, then, in a questioning, disbelieving manner, said, "Holes in the sky?"



And the spirit answered. "They will become the second sign of the destruction of man. The holes in the sky and all that you have seen could become man's reality. It is here, at the beginning of this second sign, that man can no longer heal the Earth with physical action. It is here that man must heed the warning and work harder to change the future at hand. But man must not only work physically, he must also work spiritually, through prayer, for only through prayer can man now hope to heal the Earth and himself."



There was a long pause as Grandfather thought about the impossibility of holes in the sky. Surely Grandfather knew that there could be a spiritual hole, but a hole that the societies of the Earth could notice would hardly seem likely.



The spirit drew closer and spoke again, almost in a whisper. "These holes are a direct result of man's life, his travel, and of the sins of his grandfathers and grandmothers. These holes, the second sign, will mark the killing of his grandchildren and will become a legacy to man's life away from Nature. It is the time of these holes that will mark a great transition in mankind's thinking. They will then be faced with a choice-a choice to continue following the path of destruction, or a choice to move back to the philosophy of the Earth and a simpler existence. It is here that the decision must be made, or all will be lost."



Without another word, the spirit turned and walked back into the dust.


The Third Sign



Grandfather spent the next four days at the cave entrance, though for those four days nothing spoke to him, not even the Earth. He said that it was a time of great sorrow, of aloneness, and a time to digest all that had taken place.



He knew that these things would not appear in his lifetime, but they had to be passed down to the people of the future with the same urgency and power with which they had been delivered to him. But he did not know how he would explain these unlikely events to anyone. Surely the elders and shamans of the tribes would understand, but not society, and certainly not anyone who was removed from the Earth and Spirit.



He sat for the full four days, unmoving, as if made of stone, and his heart felt heavy with the burden he now carried.



It was at the end of the fourth day that the third Vision came to him. As he gazed out onto the landscape towards the setting Sun, the sky suddenly turned to a liquid and then turned blood-red. As far as his eyes could see, the sky was solid red, with no variation in shadow, texture or light. The whole of Creation seemed to have grown still, as if awaiting some unseen command. Time, place and destiny seemed to be in limbo, stilled by the bleeding sky. He gazed for a long time at the sky, in a state of awe and terror, for the red colour of the sky was like nothing he had ever seen in any sunset or sunrise. The colour was that of man, not of Nature, and it had a vile stench and texture. It seemed to burn the Earth wherever it touched. As sunset drifted to night, the stars shone bright red, the colour never leaving the sky, and everywhere the cries of fear and pain were heard.



Again, the warrior spirit appeared to Grandfather, but this time as a voice from the sky. Like thunder, the voice shook the landscape. "This, then, is the third sign, the night of the bleeding stars. It will become known throughout the world, for the sky in all lands will be red with the blood of the sky, day and night. It is then, with this sign of the third probable future, that there is no longer hope. Life on the Earth as man has lived it will come to an end, and there can be no turning back, physically or spiritually. It is then, if things are not changed during the second sign, that man will surely know the destruction of the Earth is at hand. It is then that the children of the Earth must run to the wild places and hide. For when the sky bleeds fire, there will be no safety in the world of man."



Grandfather sat in shocked horror as the voice continued.



"From this time, when the stars bleed, to the fourth and final sign, will be four seasons of peace [that is, one year]. It is in these four seasons that the children of the Earth must live deep in the wild places and find a new home, close to the Earth and the Creator. It is only the children of the Earth that will survive, and they must live the philosophy of the Earth, never returning to the thinking of man. And survival will not be enough, for the children of the Earth must also live close to the Spirit. So tell them not to hesitate if and when this third sign becomes manifest in the stars, for there are but four seasons to escape."



Grandfather said that the voice and red sky lingered for a week, and then were gone as quickly as they were manifest.


The Fourth Sign



He did not remember how many days he'd spent at the mouth of the cave, nor did it make a difference, for he had received the Vision he had come for.



It was in his final night at the Eternal Cave that the fourth Vision came to Grandfather, this time carried by the voice of a young child.



The child said, "The fourth and final sign will appear through the next ten winters [that is, ten years] following the night that the stars will bleed. During this time, the Earth will heal itself and man will die. For those ten years, the children of the Earth must remain hidden in the wild places, make no permanent camps, and wander to avoid contact with the last remaining forces of man. They must remain hidden, like the ancient scouts, and fight the urge to go back to the destruction of man. Curiosity could kill many."



There was a long silence, until Grandfather spoke to the child spirit, asking, "And what will happen to the worlds of man?"



There was another period of silence until finally the child spoke again. "There will be a great famine throughout the world, like man cannot imagine. Waters will run vile, the poisons of man's sins running strong in the waters of the soils, lakes and rivers. Crops will fail, the animals of man will die, and disease will kill the masses. The grandchildren will feed upon the remains of the dead, and all about will be the cries of pain and anguish. Roving bands of men will hunt and kill other men for food, and water will always be scarce, getting scarcer with each passing year. The land, the water, the sky will all be poisoned, and man will live in the wrath of the Creator. Man will hide at first in the cities, but there he will die. A few will run to the wilderness, but the wilderness will destroy them, for they had long ago been given a choice. Man will be destroyed, his cities in ruin, and it is then that the grandchildren will pay for the sins of their grandfathers and grandmothers."



"Is there then no hope?" Grandfather asked.



The child spoke again. "There is only hope during the time of the first and second signs. Upon the third sign, the night of the bleeding, there is no longer hope, for only the children of the Earth will survive. Man will be given these warnings; if unheeded, there can be no hope, for only the children of the Earth will purge themselves of the cancers of mankind, of mankind's destructive thinking. It will be the children of the Earth who will bring a new hope to the new society, living closer to the Earth and Spirit."



Then all was silent, the landscape cleared and returned to normal, and Grandfather stepped from the Vision. Shaken, he said that he had wandered for the next season, trying to understand all that had been given to him, trying to understand why he had been chosen.



Grandfather had related the story to me in great detail during that night of the four prophecies. I don't think that any event had been left out, and his emotions and thoughts were such that he actually relived it for us. Thus the power of his Vision became part of our spirit, our driving force, and a big part of our fears.



I sat for a long time up on the hill. The fire had gone out, and all had retired to sleep for the night. Creation seemed to be at a standstill, awaiting this darkest part of the night to pass by. I felt alone and vulnerable, as if all of Creation were scrutinising my every thought.



Grandfather had these Visions some time in the 1920s.
