“In this time the anti-Christ…will perform false miracles and subsist only on vitiating (i.e. contaminating) faith”
“May the Pope guard against the performers of miracles. For the time has come when the most astonishing wonders will take place on the earth and in the air”
” There will be a series of wars until the last war which will then be fought by the kings of the anti-Christ, all of whom will have one and the same plan and will be the only rulers of the world…All civil governments will have one and the same plan: abolish and do away with every religious principal to make way for materialism, atheism, spiritualism and vice of all kinds”.
“In these times, you have need above all of being defended from the terrible snares of my Adversary, who has succeeded in establishing his reign in the world. It is the reign which is opposed to Christ; it is the reign of the Antichrist. In this last part of your century, this reign of his will reach the peak of its strength, of its power, of its great seduction. The hour is in preparation when the man of iniquity, who wants to put himself in the place of God to have himself adored as God, is about to manifest himself in all his power.
“Even now, that which I predicted at Fatima and that which I have revealed here in the third message confided to a little daughter of mine is in the process of being accomplished. And so, even for the Church the moment of its great trial has come, because the man of iniquity will establish himself within it and the abomination of desolation will enter into the holy temple of God.”
Sister Catherine Emmerick:
“I saw many pastors cherishing dangerous ideas against the Church. . . . I saw among other things. . . the Church under N___________. In all the rooms lay his children (that is, his plans), a full collection of his views. . . . He had set fire to the house, and I with others had to save the goods and convey them to the sheepfold. They built a large, singular, extravagant church which was “to embrace all creeds with equal rights; Evangelicals, Catholics and all denominations, a true communion of the unholy with one shepherd and one flock. There was to be a Pope, a salaried Pope, without possessions. All was made ready, many things finished; but, in place of an altar were only abomination and desolation. Such was the new church to be, and it was for it he had set fire to the old one; but God designed otherwise.”
St Nilos-Gusher of Mount Athos:
“When the time for the advent of the Antichrist approaches, people’s minds will grow cloudy from carnal passions, and dishonour and lawlessness will grow stronger. Then the world will become unrecognizable. People’s appearances will change, and it will be impossible to distinguish men from women due to their shamelessness in dress and style of hair.
These people will be cruel and will be like wild animals because of the temptations of the Antichrist. There will be no respect for parents and elders, love will disappear, and Christian pastors, bishops and priests will become vain men, completely failing to distinguish the right-hand way from the left.
And all this will result from the fact that the Antichrist wants to be lord over everything and become the ruler of the whole universe, and he will produce miracles and fantastic signs. He will also give depraved wisdom to an unhappy man so that he will discover a way in which one man can carry on a conversation with another from one end of the earth to another. At that time men will also fly through the air like birds and descent to the bottom of the sea like fish.”
“If a prophet arises… and tells you of signs or wonders and if the signs and wonders take place, and he says, ‘Let us follow other gods which you have not known and let us worship them.’ You must not listen to the words of that prophet… The Lord your God is testing you to find out if you love Him with all your heart, and with all your soul. It is the Lord your God you must follow…”
“If your very own brother, or son or daughter, or the wife that you love, or you closest friend secretly entices you saying, ‘Let us go and worship other gods,’ gods that neither you or your fathers have known, gods of the people around you whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other, do not yield to him or listen to him…”
2 Thess. 2:12-15, Verse 9
“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the works of Satan, displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs, and wonders…”
“And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men, because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image of the beast for honor. Who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.”
“Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place, let him who reads understand.”
Daniel 11:31, 36-37
“A king who will do according to his own will. He will make no account of the God of his fathers: And he shall follow the lust of woman. And he shall not regard any gods. But he will worship the god, Maozim,” (the god of forces).
