Oh, this is something.....! I’d never heard of this before.......
It is another reminder to us of God's word: "For surely the Lord God does nothing without revealing his plan to his prophets, his messengers" (Amos 3:7). It is so obvious that God has used many messengers since Fatima in the past 100 years to guide His faithful to prepare. Few do, but God has been faithful to his word. He has sent the prophets, His own mother, His angels and His saints to speak to these changing times and I feel so blessed to have been given the grace to be Catholic and have heard His prophets, such as Father Scanlon and Ralph Martin clearly are. The messages on this thread are as clear as they get. All structures will be gone. All is the key word! Nothing will stand, but a deep faith in the one true God. Our Catholic faith is all we will carry into the era of peace where it will blossom in beauty and peace. Those who survive will have gone through the fires of hell on earth. Those who persevere will have merited by the grace of God the 1000 years of rest that Revelations 20 speaks of and what our Lady of Fatima promised. What a beautiful era that will be.
Look at all that social distancing!
Seattle is a leftist stronghold. What a beautiful city and state and the crazy has become the norm there. Seattle is particularly Democrat. It seems the problem areas now are in the Democrat cities where the governors and mayors are allowing this stuff to happen. I am thinking that these are the people still unemployed or never employed. Most states have opened back up and people are going back to jobs, except a few who just want to rabble rouse and not be a productive member of America. Ain't socialism grand (sarcasm). These people think the socialism train is utopia where everyone is treated equal and gets equal things. Wrong! These are the first people that will vote in socialism/communism and then rant because it didn't turn out like they thought it would. Sad really.
Yes. The Communars in 1871. Very similar scenario. A general named Patrice MacMahon whose family had come to Francd from Ireland in 1702 routed them out and put an end to them.
Well they were very cruel to them really they murdered whole families, they pretty well wiped out the entire population of Paris really. The Anarchists were terrible too, they had a terrible hatred of Catholics and the Church, as did the Anarchists in Spain during the Civil War , as do the Anarchists in the USA at the moment.
But there was a wonderful saint during the Spanish Civil War who made me think a lot, I read a book on her life. She was a wife and mother. She lived in a mining town, I think in the North of the country which was very Communist. Although she was a devout Catholic and everyone knew it they left her alone. Why? Well because she was such a good person, really. She just went about helping everyone before the Civil War. Everyone owed her in a way she was so respected.
Anyway someone commented on her during the war. She never said a bad word about anyone. People used to bad mouth the Communists about how the were murdering priests and nuns and lay People. But she never joined in. She never said a bad word about anyone. Even in the midst of all this murder and bloodshed.
I Just found that very touching in the circumstance. I must try and remember her name...
I must post a picture of her if I can find one. She even looked like a saint.
51 Brothers of the Missionaries of the Immaculate Heart, killed by the Communists in Barbastro Spain in August 1936.
Beatified by Pope st John Paul , 25th October 1992
I went to mass tonight for the first time in three months in secret. There were only myself, my brother and one other layperson person present.
I found out why they invited him. He was a guy called Paul. His only son had died just few days previously. He was 27 year sold and died in his sleep. He had suffered from Schizophrenia.
The gentleman's name was Paul. Poor man. At his sons funeral the Parish Priest told him he could not give him communion on the tongue because out Bishop forbade it. But the priest gave it to him secretly on the tongue, hiding it from the cameras.
Paul told me he was converted in Lourdes just four years ago. He was there on Pilgrimage when his father died while there.
Some amazing stories.
I wonder if Democratic rulers in different areas might be purposely letting the violence go ahead in the hope that the President would step in? It would be a win/ win situation for them?
As far as I recall Fr Scanlan made other famous Prophecies. There was one I believe in Rome at a Conference years before Our Lady appeared at Medugorje when he forecast she would come.
There are many, many saints going about at the moment, many of them known to us. Sadly I think we do not give them credit. It's a wonderful gift to us at this present time we can actually listen and watch them even live on utube. Our Forefathers never had this. Also it is very possible to actually go and meet them, so many of them do not live more than a stones throw from our own homes.
The times our very, very dark, but full of Great Lights too. Really great saints.
On the other hand it's also true that there are many, many false Prophets as well. All that glitters is not gold.
"My children, pray! The world has been drawn into a great whirlpool. It does not know what it is doing. It does not realize in what sin it is sinking. It needs your prayers so that I can pull it out of this danger."
I’d love to see that prophecy....
I am sure this is part of the plan. If he calls the military they can call him a tyrant and/or it could be used as a planned massacre with deep state people or anarchists setting up the military to fire on them. It is a tough situation as the military cannot fire on citizens normally. AG Barr has called up federal SWAT teams to help with this alleviating the need for Trump to call the military. All the agencies in the Fed govt have swat teams, well armed. It is brilliant in my opinion .So the feds have taken care of a problem and have control over the situation that the mayors and governors should have taken care of. Of course, the msm is crickets about this. And they have been told about it and still nothing much. LOL. And I don't mean to laugh at the situation which is bad. However, seems DJT is ahead of the narrative once again. Like him or not he does his job to the best of his ability. And I don't like everything he says or does but he doesn't sit on his hands.
To watch prophecy unfold is kind of eerie but kind of interesting at the same time. I am always leery about prophecy because there are many false ones out there. Hard for me to discern because they can be so general . But I do enjoy reading them.
Yes we are watching prophecy in real time.
I do not know that the era of peace equals the "thousand years" mentioned in Revelations 20.
The traditional Catholic interpretation sees our current age (since the Resurrection) as the "thousand years"; and in either case it is not to be interpreted as a literal 1000 years.
"Like the other numerical values in this book, the thousand years are not to be taken literally; they symbolize the long period of time between the chaining up of Satan (a symbol for Christ’s resurrection-victory over death and the forces of evil) and the end of the world. During this time God’s people share in the glorious reign of God that is present to them by virtue of their baptismal victory over death and sin;"
676 The Antichrist's deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgment. The Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism,577 especially the "intrinsically perverse" political form of a secular messianism.578
677 The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection.579 The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God's victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven.580 God's triumph over the revolt of evil will take the form of the Last Judgment after the final cosmic upheaval of this passing world.581
"Christ Will Reign On Earth During The Millennium!"
The twentieth chapter of the book of Revelation is a vital passage for those who interpret the book futuristically. It contains the only description of the millennium (Latin, thousand years) in the New Testament. Is this a reference to a literal one-thousand-year period? If so, will that time consist of a future earthly reign of Christ? Or does the passage refer in metaphorical language to another period of time, such as the current Church age?
Debate over the matter existed even in the early Church. When Church Father Justin Martyr was asked in the second century if he believed that there would be an earthly millennial reign of Christ in the future, he stated, "I and many others are of this opinion, and [believe] that such will take place." At the same time he admitted, "that many who belong to the pure and pious faith, and are true Christians, think otherwise" (Dialogue with Trypho, 70).
The greatest opponent of early Christian millenarianism was Augustine of Hippo (354-430). In The City of God, he rejected millenarianism and offered a view of history largely free of end-times speculation. Throughout time and history, Augustine taught, the City of God and the City of Man were constantly in tension with one another. At the end of time, at the Last Judgment, the citizens of these two cities finally will be separated — the sheep from the goats (Matt. 25:32-46). Augustine saw God orchestrating time and history like an "unchanging conductor," ordering events according to his will. Although the Catholic Church never officially endorsed Augustine's interpretation, most Catholics accepted it as a reasonable conclusion.
By Fr. Michael Scanlan
The Lord God says, “Hear My Word: The time that has been marked by My blessings and gifts is being replaced now by the period to be marked by my judgment and purification. What I have not accomplished by blessings and gifts, I will accomplish by judgment and purification.
My people, My Church is desperately in need of this judgment. They have continued in an adulterous relationship with the spirit of the world. They are not only infected with sin, but they teach sin, embrace sin, dismiss sin. Their leadership has been unable to handle this. There is fragmentation, confusion, throughout the ranks. Satan goes where he will and infects whom he will. He has free access throughout my people—and I will not stand for this.
My people specially blessed in this renewal are more under the spirit of the world than they are under the Spirit of My baptism. They are more determined by fear of what others will think of them—fears of failure and rejection in the world, loss of respect of neighbors and superiors and those around them—than they are determined by fear of me and fear of infidelity to my word.
Therefore, your situation is very, very weak. Your power is so limited. You cannot be considered at this point in the center of the battle and the conflict that is going on.
So this time is now come upon all of you: a time of judgment and of purification. Sin will be called sin. Satan will be unmasked. Fidelity will be held up for what it is and should be. My faithful servants will be seen and will come together. They will not be many in number. It will be a difficult and a necessary time. There will be collapse, difficulties throughout the world.
But more to the issue, there will be purification and persecution among my people. You will have to stand for what you believe. You will have to choose between the world and me. You will have to choose what word you will follow and whom you will respect.
And in that choice, what has not been accomplished by the time of blessing and gifts will be accomplished. What has not been accomplished in the baptism and the flooding of gifts of my Spirit will be accomplished in a baptism of fire. The fire will move among you and it will burn out what is chaff. The fire will move among you individually, corporately, in groups, and around the world.
I will not tolerate the situation that is going on. I will not tolerate the mixture and the adulterous treating of gifts and graces and blessings with infidelity, sin, and prostitution. My time is now among you.
What you need to do is to come before Me in total submission to My Word, in total submission to My plan, in the total submission in this new hour. What you need to do is to drop the things that are your own, those things of the past. What you need to do is to see yourselves and those whom you have responsibility for in light of this hour of judgment and purification. You need to see them in that way and do for them what will best help them to stand strong and be among My faithful servants.
For there will be casualties. It will not be easy, but it is necessary. It is necessary that My people be, in fact, my people; that My Church be, in fact, My Church; and that My Spirit, in fact, bring forth the purity of life, the purity and fidelity to the Gospel.
Wow. Straight to the heart of the matter.
St. Augustine of Hippo was fighting a heresy called "Chillianism" from "chilioi" which means thousand in Biblical Greek. In this heresy, people were taught that when Jesus returned, the faithful would get 1 thousand years in which to get drunk, overindulge, and fornicate like rabbits. I.e., they would get to engage in all the behaviors they had denied themselves while alive.
It's interesting to note that many of the characteristics of the 1,000 year reign described by the Chillianists matched the descriptions of paradise given by the Quran some 200 years later.
