PROPHECY & REVELATIONS
POPE JOHN PAUL II - PROPHECY FOR THE CHURCH
"We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the FINAL confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel."
---Karol Cardinal Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II), November 9, 1976
ANOTHER WARNING FOR CATHOLICS
Pope Benedict XVI stated: "The attacks on the Pope and the Church do not just come from outside, but the sufferings of the Church come precisely from within the Church, from the sin that is in the Church. This has always been known, but today we see it in a really terrifying way: The greatest persecution of the Church does not come from external enemies, but is born from the sin in the Church.
The Church, therefore, has the profound need to learn penance again, to accept purification, to learn on one hand forgiveness, as well as the need for justice. Forgiveness does not replace justice."
Lisbon, Portugal, MAY 11, 2010 (Zenit.org)
Commentary: Pope Benedict's statement regarding sins committed by members of the Church especially pertains to the poor example being set by our bishops and priests, many of whom have become very worldly and lukewarm in the practice of their faith. This is a great scandal and the main reason for the existence of this website.
Of course, although there are many good Protestants, this does not excuse the gravely sinful behavior of many other Protestants who are guilty of bigotry and prejudice against the Roman Catholic Church. They forget this powerful warning given by Our Lord JESUS CHRIST:
"And if he will not hear them: tell the church. And if he will not hear the church, let him be to thee as the heathen and publican. Amen I say to you, whatsoever you shall bind upon earth, shall be bound also in heaven; and whatsoever you shall loose upon earth, shall be loosed also in heaven." (Matthew 18:17-18).
In addition, many Protestants, because of their pride which has blinded them from accepting the Truth (not accepting all that JESUS and His Church teaches, although He has also told us that He is "the Way, the Truth, and the Life"), refuse to believe that JESUS directed these words to the first Pope of His Church. In addition, they choose to ignore the fact that their attacks come from the devil:
"And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:18). vtb
THE FALSE TEACHINGS OF THE WORLD VERSUS THE TRUTH
"Love not the world, nor the things which are in the world. If any man love the world, the charity of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, is the concupiscence of the flesh, & the concupiscence of the eyes, and the pride of life, which is not of the Father, but is of the world."
(1 John 2:15)
"We adore Thee, we bless Thee, & we thank Thee O Christ, because by Thy Holy Cross & Thy great sufferings, Thou has redeemed the world!"
GRAVE WARNINGS FROM THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
"Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error.
And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness, full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity, whisperers, Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents.
God delivered them up: Not by being author of their sins, but by withdrawing his grace, and so permitting them, in punishment of their pride, to fall into those shameful sins.
Foolish, dissolute, without affection, without fidelity, without mercy. Who, having known the justice of God, did not understand that they who do such things, are worthy of death; and not only they that do them, but they also that consent (approve of their actions) to them that do them."
"O how good an sweet is thy spirit, O Lord, in all things! And therefore thou chastisest them that err, by little and little; and admonish them, and speakest to them, concerning the things wherein they offend; that leaving their wickedness, they may believe in thee, O Lord...
Because they did works hateful to thee... merciless MURDERERS OF THEIR OWN CHILDREN... (ABORTION). Wherefore thou hast also greatly tormented them who in their life have lived foolishly and unjustly, by the same things which they worshiped. For they went astray for a long time in the ways of error, holding those things for gods (material things) which are the most worthless among beasts, living after the manner of children without understanding.
Therefore thou hast sent a judgment upon them... they suffered by those very things which they took for gods..." (the loss of material things).
"Know also this, that, in the LAST DAYS, shall come dangerous times. Men shall be lovers of themselves, covetous, haughty, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, wicked, Without affection, without peace, slanderers, incontinent, unmerciful, without kindness. Traitors, stubborn, puffed up, and lovers of pleasures more than of God: Having an appearance indeed of godliness, (like President Obama) but denying the power thereof. Now these (people) AVOID."
(2 Timothy 3:1-5)
I feel it very important that I share this spiritual information and I hope that you will not be offended by my efforts. No matter what the level of your faith or your religion, please take the time to listen to this man whether you believe all that he says or not. As it did mine, It will greatly benefit your soul and make it much easier to understand the holy path we all must take to be worthy of Heaven. Thank you and God bless you!

Whatever passing pleasures come with sin, they are in fact passing. Great and accumulated suffering eventually comes with almost all sinful activity. Yet, despite this experience, we human beings remain very gullible, we seem to love empty promises and put all sorts of false hopes of them....
So many things help drive this division, and the devil surely taps into them all: anger, past hurts, resentments, fears, misunderstandings, greed, pride, and arrogance. There is also the impatience that we so easily develop regarding those we love, and the flawed notion that somehow, other more perfect and desirable people should be sought.
And thus many abandon their marriages, family, churches and communities, always in search of the elusive goal of finding better and more perfect people and situations...
The devil causes us to fixate on fears about passing things, and thereby not to have a proper fear of the judgment which awaits us.
Jesus says Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell (Matt 10:28).
Satan temps us to impatience with our self or others. And, in our aspirations, expected in unreasonably quick time, there comes a lack of charity toward our self or others. Some grow discouraged with themselves or others and give up on the pursuit of holiness. Others give up on the Church because of the imperfections found there."

HEALINGS, POWERFUL PROPHECY, WHAT IS COMING FOR THE JUST AND FOR SINNERS. Please note: Many favors have already been granted to those who have prayed to this great saint. If you have been healed through her intercession, or granted a special favor, please contact me with the details. vtb
GRAVE PREDICTIONS FOR THE USA
The following are not my original thoughts. They are based upon prophecies and revelations that I have read over a period of many years and they are offered here for your discernment:
Our once great nation will continue it's moral decline, destroy itself economically, and lose the respect of many other nations throughout the world. True wisdom will continue to disappear from the mouths of our leaders. Moral corruption will be everywhere - a great number of our citizens will be looking for a free hand-out.
Promises will be broken - with the exception of those who place their trust in the Lord, fear and confusion, rather than love and peace, will dominate the hearts and minds of men and women.
Those who possess true faith will become rare, even among those who call themselves "Christians." But through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the power of the Holy Rosary, Almighty God will act, and after a period of wide-spread immorality, people throughout the world will be cleansed and again be made pleasing to God. vtb
St. Benedict and the popes who took his name have often been associated with peace-making (the olive branch) and St. Benedict's very order, the Benedictines, are also known as 'Olivetans' and has an olive branch as its symbol."
THE TRIBULATION (GREAT CHASTISEMENT)
Therese Neumann was a German stigmatist and mystic, who for many years did not sleep and lived without food or liquids except for the daily Eucharist.
When asked by an American GI if the United States would ever be destroyed or invaded in a war, her answer was: "No, but at the end of this century America will be destroyed economically by a series of NATURAL DISASTERS."
"Told by Our Lord that her gift of seeing the past, present, and future in mystic visions was greater than that possessed by anyone else in history."
The Servant of God - Luisa Piccarreta, Little Daughter of The Divine Will - The highest spiritual state you can achieve here on earth. "Everything is in the Divine Will; therefore It wants to love together with you, and if you call It, It gives you Its Love in your power in order to be loved; It gives you Its sanctity to make yourself a saint, Its light to make Itself known and to eclipse your weaknesses, miseries and passions, so that they may no longer have life in you, but only Its Will, laying and forming Its Life in your little act…"
(From the Letters of Luisa – January, 2, 1939)
Center for the Divine Will - "Information on the writings of Luisa Piccarreta - We pray, dear pilgrim, that whatever benefits are received from reading the information contained in this site will redound to the greater glory of the Most Holy Trinity and hasten the coming of the Kingdom of the Divine Will to Reign on earth as in Heaven."
Luisa Piccarreta being Slandered -Commentary: There is some controversy concerning the promotion and/or spiritual practices connected with the Luisa Piccarreta's writings about the Kingdom of the Divine Will. Luisa's Cause for Beatification is now being investigated through the Magisterium of the Church. Unfortunately, her good name is being slandered and her "Cause" being scandalized by numbers of "Catholics" through various means, such as websites and articles in Catholic magazines or other news sources. vtb

OUR HOPE COMES THROUGH THE CHURCH!
Commentary: Knowing the mental and physical condition of Pope John Paul II in the months preceding his death, it appears that Pope Benedict XVI drew a comparison to his own mental and physical condition.
This does not mean he felt Pope John was not efficiently carrying out his duties because his illness was of a different nature. It means that although Pope John Paul may have assumed he had little time left, Pope Benedict feels his remaining time on this earth is unknown.
Therefore he feels he can best serve the Church in a different capacity while allowing another, who is in a far better state of health, to assume the heavy responsibilities of his Holy Office.
We owe it to this humble man (Pope Benedict XVI) to pray for him so he will have peace and strength in his remaining days on earth.
However, we are especially grateful that God has granted us another holy Pope to continue to bring about the renewal of His Church in these dangerous times where the light of true faith is growing dimmer and dimmer. vtb
'Let us trust in the intercession of the Virgin Mary in this time of testing,' he added. 'Through her we will feel the powerful presence of His Divine Son, so we may ward off temptation with the Word of Christ and place God at the centre of our lives.
We must reject the false images of the Messiah as Jesus did when faced with the temptations the Temptor presented him with, the most serious of which is using God for one’s own ends,' Benedict XVI said during the course of the Angelus prayer."

Miracles in Catholic Church - Although they are to us, "miracles" to Almighty God are of course not extraordinary, for "With God, all things are possible" (Matthew 19:26).
Shown & explained here are of some of the thousands of great miracles that have occurred in, and through members of the Catholic Church.
However, as you may be aware, miracles can, and do occur through members of other Churches, primarily in the way of healings, although other forms of miracles also take place. All believers are aware that a solid faith and sincere prayers are the main ingredients that allow great and little miracles to happen in our daily lives. vtb

Spiritual State of Catholic Church - "Thou therefore gird up thy loins and arise, and speak to them all that I command thee. Be not afraid at their presence, for I will make thee not to fear their countenance... And they shall fight against thee and shall not prevail, for I am with thee saith the Lord, to deliver thee." (Jeremias 1:17,19). The Catholic Man - This is a spiritually beautiful letter that should be read by all Catholic men & their faimilies. Worldly Diocese - Bishop Ricken of the Green Bay Diocese refuses to study and address the causes of these grave moral issues. You will find that many of these issues reflect the spiritual state of the average diocese in the USA and other nations of the West. Therefore this letter is just as timely today as the day it was written.
