Part 4- Heaven intervenes!
It is fascinating, in retrospect, to see how Heaven has intervened in this past century as Hell’s diabolical plan has been unfolding. The year 1917, of course, is the pivotal moment when the Virgin Mary appeared at Fatima, an obscure little village in Portugal named after the daughter of Islam’s founding father, the “Last Prophet” Mohammed. In the Spring of 1916 the Blessed Mother was preceded by the Angel of Portugal, later identified as St Michael, and it was he who prepared the young shepherd and shepherdesses of Fatima for their divine visitation.
This is an interesting detail, because in the Book of Daniel Chapter 12, describing the End Times, St Michael is mentioned as “being close to God’s people”. Once again at Garabandal in 1961 he appears on numerous occasions along with the Virgin Mary, and this is at the onset of Vatican II when the sealed Secret of Fatima is silenced and the instructions of the Virgin Mary ignored. It was at Fatima – thirty years before the advent of nuclear weaponry – that Mary advised us that “if people do not turn back to God” there would be the annihilation of several nations.
Famous Russian author Alexander Solzhenitsyn, fifty years after the ruinous Soviet revolution which swallowed up 60 million of his fellow countrymen, echoed those words of Mary as he repeated what he had heard as a child: “Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.” Reflecting upon the state of the world today, the lawlessness and anarchy and violence, the lack of respect for everything sacred, we can say the same thing. The only reason the new World Order and its worldwide worship of Lucifer will succeed is because humanity no longer wants Jesus Christ as their King. They have foolishly rejected Him along with the Laws of God in favour of a supposed liberty and they will “reap the whirlwind” (Hosea 8.7).
At Medjugorje, the Blessed Mother told the visionaries back in the early 1980s that God had permitted the devil to have complete power to rule for a hundred years, and we are living through that period. Her words reinforce the vision of Pope Leo XIII in 1844 when he “overheard” a conversation between Satan and the Lord, a very similar scenario to the Book of Job where an agreement took place in the celestial throne room about Job’s faith to be tested. After Pope Leo’s vision he was inspired to compose the well-known Catholic prayer to St Michael for protection. That prayer and the Holy Rosary are two of the major weapons needed in our arsenal for the intensifying final battle between good and evil.
It is obvious now, from all I have now been reading, that Masonry has been instrumental in directing this 100 year strategy of decline, assisted by all the evil forces emptied out of Hell during this period (according to Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich this occurred “two-thirds of the way through the 20th Century”). Those opposed to God have guided and controlled the course of world events and from the mid-1800s have swayed the thinking of the masses, today especially through the propaganda machine of global media and technological advances in communication. Over the decades more and more of the population, since the First World War, have abandoned the land and been lured into the burgeoning cities of the world by the promise of better prospects, and all of us have been swept along at a breathless pace through an age of so much progress and scientific advancement, oblivious of our awaiting destiny.
In 1931 a devout young Polish nun, now Saint Faustina, was visited by Jesus and told to speak to the world about His great Mercy and to “prepare the world for My Final Coming” when he would come “not as a Merciful Saviour but as a just Judge”. This visitation along with the apparitions of Fatima has been Heaven’s warning that, without prayer and submission to God, our future is extremely insecure. On 13th October 1917 the fiery, dancing sun which plunged toward earth drove 70,000 people to their knees in holy fear, and this, the most monumental miracle since Biblical times, was a reminder of our need for repentance.
