I would like to start a discussion on the End Times. I would like to see a specific Topic area to discuss this in, rather than the Apparitions Topic I am posting on. Perhaps if one is started this topic can be moved there. I have studied what has been said about the End Times and Apparitions for 30 years now. The time and hour for events to be disclosed has not been revealed yet. When it happens we will all know. Most of what Our Blessed Mother has revealed in apparitions and locutions is well known. For me, there is still some light that needs to be shed on the anti-christ. Who is he, or what is he, needs further understanding and discernment. Seems that prophecy indicates that the anti-christ is both a person and a philisophical principle. For instance, you can read much about the anti-christ in the philisophical presence of Relativism, Atheism, Modernism, Freemasonry, Socialism, Communism etc.. This we can clearly see. An anti-christ peson in our times is not so evident. There are many person's in world power today, one could say has anti-christ behaviors, but they are not the anti-christ (maybe pawns of him, but not him). Could it be, that the anti-christ that is obviously present today, is the philisophical anti-christ, which is what Tripumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will crush? And could it be that the person of the anti-christ will come at the end of the world prior to the world being judged? Seems even on this site there are those that believe the anti-christ will come in person prior to the Triumph of the Immauclate Heart of Mary and other indicate not.
