We were told what to look for.

We only need to go back less than 70 years to find a basically good, moral Society. Not all peaches and cream, but the framework stood. But within one lifetime, Morality has not just gone away, it’s been made illegal. Any semblance of the Natural Law is now irrelevant. Truth is now a personal construct, formed solely by the feel good mentality of the moment.
Christianity is under greater attack now than it ever was, because it’s not just aggressive Islam on the offensive. Secularism is doing just as much damage through undermining the core values that were the glue of our families and our Nation. The “errors of Russia” have metastasized into the ultimate corruption of Socialism which has resulted in a literal tearing apart of our Culture, Country and even the Human Spirit. “A house divided against itself can not stand.”

When the most fundamental truisms of simple Biology are deemed irrelevant. When thousands of years of the basic building blocks of the Human Race are suddenly not just questioned, but legislated into obscurity. When the actual definition of Life itself becomes subject to individual whim. When Genocide is often thought of as “population control”. This last Century has seen more violent death than all of Human History combined. And the list goes on and on.

Could these not be triggers?

Scripture, Prophecy, Saints, Seers, Mystics have consistently warned of what is coming. Latter ones not only building on the earlier, but also adding more detail regarding our age. Yet most either don’t know, or ignore the increasing warnings of the Watchmen we’ve been given.

Considering the actions of China since 1949, and the doubling down of Christian suppression and martyrdom, much less the Governmental attempts at forced population control, should we be surprised at what is happening now?
And should we really be surprised if the spread of this plague continues world wide? Has the Great Shaking begun? Have the Labor Pains commenced?

Does anyone truly think there is some man-made way to return our world, even just our Country, to some semblance of normalcy? Occasional hiccups like Trump are welcome, but does anyone really believe this interruption in the slide will be continued? This is Satan’s World, and he’s going all out because he knows his time is short.

To quote Mark Mallet, “This is not a test”.

Pray, fast, intercede and repent, and hope we will not be not be put to the test.

Thoughts?

I'm a "watchman on the wall" and paying very close attention to geopolitics and the general moral (or amoral) direction that world is going. With the advent of media technology coupled with cultural tensions along with economic globalization plus the shrinkage of Christianity (in general) -- I can't help but believe that we're very near to the beginning of the end. Of course, folks have believed this for centuries but when we compare the symbology and teachings of end-time prophecies to what we're seeing today it would appear that things are taking shape and "coming to a head."

One of the main factors that pushed me towards the "survivalist" mindset was Revelation and end-time prophecy in general. I don't let it worry me. It's all in God's able hands and whatever is going to happen is going to happen no matter what I do about it. I may be the most prepared person on planet earth but if a huge hail stone or lava rock lands on my head then it will be perfectly clear that His will trumps my own.

what disheartens me is how much the 'church' has fallen. even so-called pastors and priests are denying God and accepting sinful lifestyles.

I am happy also for the Trump 'reprieve' but no telling how long it lasts.
I heard a prophecy teacher say the USA is safe for now because there are still a fair amount of believers. what happens 20 years or so down the road?

it's good to keep our eyes open, folks.

As someone that has been a watchman for several decades, I have to say that many things are happening and rapidly coming to pass, in my honest opinion. While these may not be 'the last days' they will certainly do until the last days get here.

Pray for discernment and chose wisely, for the times are approaching that no one wants to have to pass through.

Just my 2 cents

Just remember, God’s time isn’t like ours. So “the last days” could be a very, very long time, by our standards.

That said....we are in them.:thumb:

Prescient point on “time”. Don’t forget that from the earliest times after the Resurrection, many were truly expecting Jesus’ return in Glory to happen immediately. Yet not all, and not necessarily assuming His return “in the flesh”.

What does “the Great Illumination” mean to everyone and what is the result?

Truer words are rarely spoken like this, well done CM :thumb:

Honestly I think most of us feel this same way. Depressing indeed but all so very true. Funny you should mention Trump. I have found myself very often clinging to the hope that things will turn around in our moral decay and I guess I hope against hope but like you said "Scripture, Prophecy, Saints, Seers, Mystics have consistently warned us". We knew it was coming and here we are.

At the same time I honestly feel a peace about it. I know it's in God's hands. My prayers for the past few months have been on my knee's and simply saying "Speak Lord" and remain in silence before Him.

OM...

"She" is a Youtube phenomenon and was condemned by the Catholic Church. Do not pay attention to "Maria Divine Mercy." It's not prophesy and it's not Catholic.
Thanks. I thought it was something made up by Cat1978 making a mockery of St. Faustina. I only pay attention to those approved by the Church.

Thank you, sir. I also am not worried. Never been worried much since returning to the Church because we believers KNOW what the final outcome is. Yet I feel for those who refuse to believe. Who’ve decided either God doesn’t exist, or if He does, He’s not the God of Love we claim.
Jesus clearly said that He was here to minister to those who needed spiritual healing. Not those who didn’t.

Does anyone truly think that Jesus stopped communicating with His people 2,000 years ago? Especially with the stakes so high? THERE IS NO THIRD OPTION! We choose eternal Salvation or eternal darkness. He does not want us to choose Hell, and gives us every opportunity to come to Him. Hence His sending His Mother with many warnings, as well as His own words to chosen people through the years. These visits have increased in warnings as well as frequency. And the overriding message is not to reinforce we believers. It is to encourage US to pray hard for the rest of the world.
Prayer and fasting are the best mitigators against Satan, and the things that will ease the suffering to come. If the prophesies are true, Jesus will allow an illumination of conscience to all of us. Yet even with such an obvious exhibition of God’s existence and power, there are those who will still refuse to believe and acknowledge.

It falls to us to do what we can to bring others to Jesus, not just be concerned with our own.

So much more to learn for those who truly seek

In my opinion, we’re obviously in the end of the end times. COVID-19 is very possibly the means by which the world is tossed into enough collective chaos as to be willing to fall under the one world order anti-Christ system.

The world is upside down in so many ways, this has to be the age of "they will call good evil, and evil good". If you put a marble in a funnel, its rate increases as it nears the hole. I see the rate of depravity as such. Each year, each month the fallen world collectively spins faster and faster towards the end. All things are possible with God, and so a great revival is always possible. But when I read the prophetic end times verses, I see we are witness to things it describes.

Its been pretty widely observed that the USA is fractured along several cultural fault lines.

https://www.nationalreview.com/2017/06/divided-america-people-must-connect-america-survive/

Now read Daniel 2:40-45, "Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom as strong as iron; for iron shatters and crushes all things, and like iron that crushes all things, it will shatter and crush all the others. And just as you saw that the feet and toes were made partly of fired clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom, yet some of the strength of iron will be in it—just as you saw the iron mixed with clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. As you saw the iron mixed with clay, so the peoples will mix with one another, but will not hold together any more than iron mixes with clay.

In the days of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will shatter all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, but will itself stand forever. And just as you saw a stone being cut out of the mountain without human hands, and it shattered the iron, bronze, clay, silver, and gold, so the great God has told the king what will happen in the future.

The dream is true, and its interpretation is trustworthy.”

Many of you know I’ve followed this guy for years. A very conservative Catholic who pays attention to approved seers and mystics as well as being well versed in both Scripture and Tradition.
Here’s what he posted today, and I can’t find any fault in it. Chilling, but we can’t say unexpected.
