We aren't first century Jews who have neither the fullness of Revelation nor an ultimate interpretive authority. We now have the full Deposit of Faith-- Public Revelation-- given once and only once to the Apostles. Private Revelation can only confirm what's ALREADY IN Public Revelation. This is dogma. Paul taught that the return of Christ could happen at any time. Any. Time. Both he and his followers believed that Christ may even return within their lifetimes. He knew of no literal 1,000 years of peace before the Return of Christ. Any private revelation that could contradict Paul must, by definition, be false. The reality is that none of these approved Marian apparitions and Private Revelations that Mark and others appeal to even DO teach what they claim. We have tons of quotes from recent Pope's and Marian Apparitions-- with a brand new one approved yesterday-- that point to the Second Coming coming soon. But even if these private revelations DID teach what Mark and others claim, it would still be immaterial-- these teachings can't contradict Paul's understanding of the Second Coming. Paul's writings in Public Revelation supersede even a saints personal interpretation of Private Revelation. Would you like to tell that to St Thomas Aquinas, Doctor of the Church? He presented arguments "like in a court." Simply dismissing my argument as being like a "courtroom," (you know, like how MOST of the Catholics of the past debated), rather than addressing my arguments, shows that you have no answer to them. I bring up these arguments to Millennialists all the time. I have yet to have anyone address them. They simply dodge and obfuscate. The reason Millennialists can't answer them isn't because they're not intelligent enough, but is simply because their Millennialist beliefs are false.
