IN THE PROPHETIC PULSE IS NEED FOR PRAYER AND THE SOUND OF A SIREN IN THE DISTANCE
[adapted from Sent To Earth]
There are only three Catholic feast days celebrating births: Christmas, the nativity of Mary, and the birth (June 24) of John the Baptist. Otherwise it is the death of the saint that we memorialize.
The birthday of Jesus comes right after the winter solstice; from then on, the days grow longer. The feast of John comes after the summer solstice; henceforth, the days grow shorter.
That is in the mood of our times and his feast day is also an anniversary of a famous apparition. In the solemnity, we are reminded that only through love of God will major negative events in the future be lessened or averted.
What is the sense of our moment? We wonder if there will be a signal, signature event (perhaps something like a quake), or a series of major events leading to purification. In the prophetic pulse is the night sound of a siren in the distance.
Somehow, we will be challenged by mayhem. There will be a breakdown. Local authorities will be busy. It is not always "doom and gloom" or any other cliché to sense negative events. Despite signs the recession may soon "bottom out," there remains a strong sense of unsettlement. It is reflected in alleged messages from seers, whether a legitimate "word" or simply private reflection. Keep this in mind: if there is prayer, joy can come in the midst of anything!
Says an alleged recent message from Goiânia in Brazil:
"Dear Sons and Daughters, I am your mom and I come from Heaven to fill you with joy and to lead you to My Son Jesus. Have confidence, faith, and hope. Know that these are difficult times for humanity, but you who are willing to hear me need not lose hope. The victory of God will come to you. The Lord will wipe away your tears. Earth will be transformed and God will give His faithful the grace of peace, and there will be no more suffering. The forces of evil will not be able to do anything against the chosen ones of God. This will be the time of the definitive triumph of my Immaculate Heart. Go forward without fear. Be meek and humble of heart. Accept my appeals and give testimony to the marvels of God in your lives. Don´t get away from prayer. Your victory is in the Lord. He alone lives and reigns forever. Go to meet Him and you will be rich in faith. This is the message I transmit to you today in the name of the Most Holy Trinity. Thank you for permitting Me to reunite you here once more. I bless you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Be at peace."
Another from that same site, where Mary is said to have appeared to a young man since 1987:
"Dear Sons and Daughters, courage: Don´t lose heart because of your difficulties. God is very close to you. Confide in His mercy and live turned to the paradise, the only place for which you were created. I am your mom and I come from Heaven to call you to conversion. Accept my appeals and joyfully testify to the gospel of my Jesus. Humanity lives far from God and is heading towards a great abyss. A greater and more sorrowful war will come. The malice of people will bring suffering and pain to my poor children. I suffer because of what awaits you. Don't back out. Bend your knees in prayer. You won't be able to support the weight of the trials that must come without prayer. You who are listening to Me must not lose heart. I am always at your side. I will speak to My Son Jesus for each one of you. Rejoice, for you are important to the Lord. He loves you and is calling you. I bless you in the name of The Father, and of The Son, and of The Holy Spirit. Amen. Be at peace."
Can we accept a seer who specifies cities (one being Rio de Janeiro) as set for terrorism? Yet another message from there: "Humanity lives in great tensions and my poor children are heading to meet with a sorrowful trial." The most recent (the very day this article was written): " During the great tribulation for mankind, God will send prophets to orient those who are chosen. Difficult days for humanity are coming. The ground will shake and rise like waves on the sea. This will be a great catastrophe for humanity."
And so the reputed messages that erupted in the 1980s continue, often mentioning a coming chastisement. How do we discern legitimacy? Among the possibilities are quakes.
Might there be a singular seismic event in the future, or dozens of them? If so, would they come together? A year apart? Before an asteroid scare? Before the major hurricanes?
There are endless variations on what could loom, but loom something does, and that's why -- when finally it comes -- its exact format will be unexpected no matter how much we try to anticipate.
As time wears on, the dangers grow.
Over and again are those who say God is a God of mercy and that He is so full of forgiveness as to render warnings moot. He is a God of mercy. But there are only so many sinners that He will watch heading toward the netherworld before He takes merciful action. Our world, in some way, is poised for glorious change.
Like birth, it will be painful.
What about quakes? What about the rumbling earth? What are the possibilities?
If there is indeed a singular event, and not simple societal breakdown (and civil unrest), seismic events would be high on the list of possibilities.
Is a magnitude-8.5 really the limit when it came to quakes in California, or are there deep unknown mechanisms by which that state would see a magnitude-9?
Could California encounter the kind of mega-quake that Alaska has had?
Was the magnitude-9.5 that had struck South America in 1964 -- one that had sent a tidal wave to Hawaii -- really the limit, as so many believed, or might there have been far more terrific ones in past times that never made the records of history?
Could the San Andreas set off a bunch of other major faults, and vice-versa? Could the quakes in California lead to major movements on the faults in Seattle or Portland or Vancouver, or vice-versa? Is there an obscure link by which reactions in California could connect to the huge subduction zone off Seattle or others that haunted us from Alaska to Chile? Could the faults near Japan cause a chain reaction around the world? What about quakes that only came around every 2,000 or 4,000 years and have not been encountered since the Bronze Age? Might we see such events (and hear the rumbling)?
Meanwhile, the economy continues to gyrate, one day seeming better, the next stalled, or even falling again. Do the government and media have a grasp of it? Do they accurately portray the situation? Might it be a part of purification? There are many rumors in the blogosphere.
"Some U.S. embassies worldwide are being advised to purchase massive amounts of local currencies; enough to last them a year," claims one. "Some embassies are being sent enormous amounts of U.S. cash to purchase currencies from those governments, quietly. But not £´s. Inside the State Department there is a sense of sadness and foreboding that 'something' is about to happen, unknown regarding a date-- just that within 180 days, but could be 120-150 days."
It may reach into the paranoid (or, let us say, the hypersensitive). We submit such, as occasionally we do, for discernment, and so as not to ignore prophecy (as the Bible admonishes).
Loom does something -- do a number of things. War is in the wind. So is a calamity. Whether from the sky or the bowels of the earth, the pace is beginning to pick up once more and will be with us in the summer heat (as the days shorten).
Can a chastisement -- even a quake -- really be stopped?
It can. There isn't anything that can't be affected by prayer.
As the Blessed Mother has said at that place where apparitions began on St. John the Baptist's feast day: "Prayer and fasting can prevent war and natural catastrophes."
