“Gives us, Oh Creator of all marvels, Oh Healer of the creation, eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit says”.
“If anyone has ears to hear, let him listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches…” (Revelation 2,11)

Introduction

Jesus reveals to us the evident precursor signs of his Return. The Apostles handed down to us these important prophecies in writing. Luke the Evangelist says about this:

“For this is the time of vengeance when all that scripture says must be fulfilled.” (Luke 21,22)

The Gospels had already been written, but not the Apocalypse, yet. Today, we should take into consideration the prophetic words concerning Christ’s return in the Gospels and the Apocalypse, this final book which is specifically consecrated to the prophecies that concern Jesus’ Return. It is why we should be attentive to the prophetic words as Peter strongly advises: “So we have confirmation of what was said in prophecies; and you will be right to depend on prophecy and take it as a lamp for lighting a way through the dark until the dawn comes and the morning star rises in your hearts.” (2 Peter 1,19) The Morning Star is the symbol of the Messiah, Jesus (Numbers 24,17 / Revelation 2,28 / 22,16). It is in our hearts where His Return already operates. Some have already recognized Him.

Jesus also recommends us “have our lamps lit” (Luke 12,35), by our referral to, ceaselessly, the prophetic words, so to recognize the signs of the Times: “When you will see all these things: know that He is near, at the very gates” (Matthew 24,33). To neglect the prophecies, or in not recognizing their accomplishment, means that we are mortally asleep like the wise virgins (Matthew 25). Those who comprehend the prophecies realize that Jesus “is at the very gates”, as He had announced Himself in Luke 12,36 / Revelation 3,20.

Of which gates is He speaking of? That of the heart of-course!

Why is Jesus at the gates? So we open up to Him, as He desires to enter.

For what purpose? Jesus answers Himself:

“I will come in to share Supper with him (or her), Me close to him and him close to Me.” (Revelation 3,20)

“… Happy those servants whom the Master finds awake when He comes! I tell you solemnly, He will put on an apron, sit them down at Table and wait on them.” (Luke 12,35-37)

“Happy the man who reads this prophecy, and happy those who listen to him, if
they treasure all that it says, because the Time is close.” (Revelation 1,3). This time is already here. It was “close”, 2000 years ago because, as Peter explains “With the Lord, a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years are like a day” (2 Peter 3,8).

The first Christians used “to study the Scriptures to check whether it (what the apostles said of Jesus) was true” (Acts 17,11). Do the same, stay up by examining the Scriptures: “You, brothers, you are not in darkness, so that this day surprises you like a thief. You are children of light, of the day. We are not of the night, of darkness. Therefore, let us not sleep as do others, but let us stay wide awake and sober” (1 Thessalonians 5,4-7). To stay awake, the Holy Scriptures must be consulted.

Understand that Jesus is already here, at the gates. Open to Him.

The principal prophetic signs of the presence of Jesus are the following:

Apparition of the Antichrist: Israel

Matthew 24,4-5: “Many will say: I am the Christ…” (the Zionist Messiah: in Israel today, many claim that the Zionist Messiah is at the door, that he is even already in Israel; they claimed that he was Menahem Begin, then Ariel Sharon or other Rabbis)

Matthew 24,23-25: “False christs and false prophets will arise.”

Mark 13,5 / 21-22 / Luke 21,8: “Many will come using my name and say: I am He (the Messiah).”

The characteristic of the Antichrist: he denies that Jesus is the Christ (1 John 2,18-22 / 1 John 4,2-3 / 2 John 7-11). The demons are therefore not the Antichrist because they confess that Jesus is the Christ. They deny it not (Matthew 8,29 / Mark 1,34 / Luke 4,41).

Paul announced the Antichrist’s apparition whom he qualified as: “the apostasy, the Wicked One, the Lost One, the Enemy, the mystery of Impiety” (2 Thessalonians 2,2-9).

The book of Revelation announced the apparition of “the Beast” (Revelation 13 & 17). It is the Antichrist.

The Virgin, in La Salette (1846), announced the apparition of the Antichrist in the near future.

Apparition of false prophets

These false prophets speak in favor of Israel:

Matthew 24,11: “Many false prophets will arise; they will deceive many…” (The abuse perpetrated by the Media, etc…).

Matthew 24,24-25: “for false christs and false prophets will arise and produce great signs and portents… There, I have forewarned you.” (The military prodigies of Israel).

Matthew 7,15-20: “They come disguised as sheep” (Hitlerian holocaust: Revelation 13,3).

Mark 13,22: “False christs and false prophets will arise… I fully warned you.” (sects)

The Book of Revelation designates these false prophets as “The false prophet” (Revelation 19,20 / 20,10) and “the other Beast” (Revelation 13,11), or more so, “the ten kings” (Revelation 17,12), at the service of “the Beast”, who is the Antichrist (Revelation 13,12 / 17,13 / 19,20).

What are the wonders that the Antichrist will accomplish with the false prophet’s aid? The “Miraculous” return of the State of Israel and its stupendous victories thanks to American support (at its service): “The demons of the air (aviation) will make big prodigies with the Antichrist on earth and in the air”, says the Virgin in La Salette (see our text “La Salette”).

What methods do the Antichrist and the false prophet use to seduce? The “pernicious sects that renounce the Master…” (2 Peter 2,1-3), the mockery of faith (2 Peter 3,3-7), debauchery (2 Timothy 3,1-5).

There will be false perspectives of peace (1 Thessalonians 5,1-3). In La Salette, Mary also spoke of a “false peace”.

Wars, nations against nations

Matthew 24,6-7 & 24,21 / Mark 13,7-8 / Luke 21,9-10.

Famines

Matthew 24,7 / Mark 13,8 / Luke 21,11: Plagues and famines.

Earthquakes

Matthew 24,7 / Mark 13,8 / Luke 21,11: “… great earthquakes.”

Treasons

Matthew 24,10-13: “Many will fall away, people will betray one another and hate one another… with the increase of iniquity, love in most people will grow cold”. We find that love for God and for the spiritual has been extinguished with the great number in iniquity and modern perversity. That is why Jesus asked:
“When the Son of Man comes, will He find any faith on earth?” (Luke 18,8)

In La Salette, the Virgin said: “Rome will lose faith and will become the seat of the Antichrist.” Rome, the Vatican, has already lost the authentic faith.

Universal propagation of the Gospel

Matthew 24,14 / Mark 13,10.

The Gospel is translated into more than 3,000 languages. It is already spread all over the world.

Signs in the sky

Luke 21,11: “… there will be fearful sights and great signs in the sky ( planes, satellites).”

Luke 21,25-27: “… men dying of fear as they await what menaces the world (nuclear war)… And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud… ” (see 2 Peter 3,10-13)

The planes (“the locusts” of Revelation 9,1-11) and the conquest of space are great signs in the sky, and the nuclear menace that terrifies man.

There are also visible signs in the spiritual sky:

Mary’s apparitions

Mary’s apparitions were predicted by St. John in the book of Revelation: “A great Sign appeared in the sky: It is a Woman! …” (Revelation 12,1-2). This marvelous sign manifested:

  • In La Salette (1846), where Mary denounced the treason of the clergy, and the close-approaching apparition of the Antichrist, the Beast of the Apocalypse. She announced of punishments, which will be followed by the renewal of all things.
  • In Lourdes (1858), Mary revealed that she is “the Immaculate Conception”.
  • In Fatima (1917), She briefly brings back the message of La Salette and revealed a secret: the Antichrist’s identity. This fact was never revealed by the popes; a sign of the Vatican’s treason predicted in the Gospels and by Mary in La Salette.

The announced coming of the Messenger of Revelation

He has already manifested himself after 2,000 years, coming “from the East” (Revelation 7,2).

The opening of the Book of Revelation

This Messenger came with the “small Book” open (Revelation 10,2), to seal the “Apostles of the end of Times” (Revelation 7,2-3); those who must “prophesy again, this time about many different nations and countries, and languages and emperors” (Revelation 10,11).

The Greatest distress of all Time

Matthew 24,21 / Mark 13,19-20 / Revelation 7,14 / 16,18-21 / Daniel 12,1.

Spiritual darkness

Mark 13,24-25 / Matthew 24,29: “Sun will be darkened, the moon will lose its brightness” (Revelation 6,12).

Luke 21,26-34: “Debauchery, drunkenness, worries of life” (2 Timothy 3,1-5).

The sun and the moon which become obscure symbolize spiritual darkness due to apostasy and immorality:

Matthew 24,29: “… the powers of heaven (spiritual powers) will be shaken.”

Matthew 24,37-39 / Luke 17,26-30: “… as in the days of Noah and Sodom.”

Revelation 13,5-6: “… the Beast was allowed to mouth its boasts and blasphemies… against God… to make war against the saints and conquer them…”

1 Thessalonians 5,1-8: Difference between the children of light and the children of darkness.

Jerusalem

The prophecies attract our attention on what will happen in the Holy Land, and particularly in Jerusalem, in the end of Times, of the Antichrist:

Matthew 24,15-16: “… ‘the disastrous abomination… set up in the Holy Place… in Judaea’…” It is so that we say: “‘… here is the Christ’… or ‘He is there'” (Matthew 24,23-24). The Israelis believed that some of their military leaders, political or religious, were the Messiah.

Daniel spoke of the Abomination of desolation (Daniel 9,27 / 12,11) but it was revealed to him that “these words are closed and sealed until the time of the End” (Daniel 12,4 & 9).

Mark 13,14: “… the disastrous abomination set up where it ought not to be… in Judaea…”

Luke 21,20-24: “When you will see Jerusalem surrounded by armies (the Israeli army and settlements)…”

Revelation 11,2: “… they will trample the Holy City (Jerusalem)…”

Revelation 11,8: “… where their Lord was also crucified (Jerusalem)…”

Revelation 20,9: “… they besieged the camp of the saints, the beloved City (Jerusalem)…”

The Light returns from the East

Matthew 24,27-28: “… like lightning striking in the East and flashing far into the West.”
Revelation 7,2: The angel comes from the East

Song of Songs 4,8: “Come from Lebanon (the East) my beloved…”

Isaiah 29,17-18: “Lebanon will become a productive ground… That day the deaf will hear words of the Book (of Revelation)…”

Ezekiel 17,22-24: “A branch of the cedar (symbol of Lebanon) planted by God on the high mountain of Israel, will become a magnificent cedar tree to shelter the birds…”

At the end of Times, the light comes from the East, through the book of Revelation, opened by Jesus in Lebanon, the 13th of May 1970.

The Apocalyptic Messenger

Revelation 7,2-3: He comes “from the East, carrying the seal of the living God… ‘Wait before you do any damage… until we have put the seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.'”

Revelation 10,1-11: He is “powerful” and comes down from Heaven, “wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow over his head”. The rainbow is the sign that he holds the sacerdotal covenant founded by Jesus. He holds “in his hand a small Book (of Revelation) open (revealed). He must “shout out so loud” (after the fall of the Beast) and “must prophesy again, against against many different nations and countries, and languages and emperors.”

Revelation 8,3-5: He “offers the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar…” These saints who were slaughtered by the Beast “underneath the altar who had been killed on account of the Word of God, for witnessing to it…” (Revelation 6,9-11)

“The angel took the censer and filled it with the fire from the altar, which he then threw down on to the earth” (Revelation 8,5), which means that he prays that God promptly executes justice, and pours his wrath against the Beast and its allies on earth. The Angel “in charge of the fire (of the divine wrath)” of Revelation 14,18, is the same angel of Revelation 8,5.

Revelation 19,17-21: He must invite “all the birds in the sky to rally to God’s great feast and eat the flesh of kings etc…”, which means that he incites the believers to fight, through prayer, testimony, and by arms if necessary, the Beast and its allies.

Revelation 22,10: He must reveal “the secret prophecies of the Book of Revelation because the time is near”. This time has arrived.

Revelation 22,16: He is sent by Jesus Himself: “I, Jesus, have sent my Angel to declare these revelations to you concerning the Churches.”

Revelation 19,10: This envoy of Jesus must impose humility, not practiced by the clergy: “I prostrated to his feet to adore him, but he said to me: no, do not do that, I am a servant like you and your brothers who possess Jesus’ testimony. It is God whom you must adore.”

He must also explain that “Jesus’ testimony is also the Spirit of prophecy”, which means that the faithful believer should “prophesy again, against many different nations…” (Revelation 10,11). This prophecy is the specific testimony against the Beast and its allies. It announces their destruction. The Christian clergy fears testifying to such a prophecy.

Matthew 25,6: He is the one who awakes the sleeping virgins, “the cry of midnight: Here is the Bridegroom (Return of Jesus)”.

The Apostles of Christ’s Return

Jesus announced the sending of His Apostles of the end of times to His first Apostles: “He will send his angels (his envoys) with a loud trumpet (the Apocalyptic trumpet) to gather his elect from the four winds” (Matthew 24,31 / Mark 13,27).

Matthew 13,40-43: “… at the end of time, the Son of Man will send his angels who will gather out of his Kingdom all things that provoke offences…” (Revelation 21,8 / 22,14-15).

Speaking of “his angels” to his first Apostles, it is clear that he was not referring to them, but to other Apostles He will send in the future, at the end of Times. These will be chosen, marked, by God’s seal whom only the Apocalyptic Messenger possesses (Revelation 7,2). It is he who marks the elect through the “small open” Book (Revelation 10,2).

The Virgin spoke of these Apostles of the end of Times in La Salette and Marienfried.

Commentary

Jesus returns “on the clouds of Heaven”, which means in the souls of his faithful (Matthew 24,30 / Mark 13,26 / Luke 21,27 / Revelation 1,7 / Daniel 7,13). All is internal, in the heart. Some have already seen Him (John 14,7) because He will only appear “to those who are waiting for Him” (Hebrews 9,28). This vision will be obvious and widespread after the fall of the Beast, because “every eye shall see Him, even those who have pierced Him” (Revelation 1,7).

Luke 21,15: Jesus, Himself, will give his Apostles of the end of Times “an eloquence and a wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to resist or contradict”. This wisdom is the coherent, evident, and irrefutable interpretation of the prophecies of the end of Times, particularly those of the Book of Revelation.

Conclusion

And you, have you seen the accomplishing of all these events? “When you will see all these things, realize that He is at the very gates” (Matthew 24,33), at your door, and desires to enter and dine with you in intimacy (Luke 12,36-37 / Revelation 3,20). (See the text: “Jesus restores the priesthood”)

The Apostles asked Jesus where the events of the end of Times were to take place. He answered them: “Where the body is, there too will the vultures gather.” (Matthew 24,28 / Luke 17,37) The Body of Christ is found today in the homes of the Apocalyptic families, those who have the courage, the intelligence and the subtlety of the spirit to “calculate the number of the Beast” and recognize its identity. They could therefore have the force to answer without shame, head high, to the invitation of the wedding of the Lamb (Luke 21,36); after having resisted the Beast and his allies, reducing them to corpses according to the encouragement of the angel of the Apocalypse (Revelation 19,17-18). In order to merit the Body of Christ, one must devour the corpses of one’s enemies.

To hear the call to combat launched by the Angel of the Apocalypse, one must be able to “come up here in order to see what is to take place in the future”, which is, today, already taking place (Revelation 4,1). Happy are those who hear the invitation of the wedding host: “My friend, move up higher. They will be honored in front of all the others guests” (Luke 14,10). Because Jesus, through his Angel, opens a new door (Revelation 3,8). Happy are those who succeed in entering through it, despite its narrow appearance, as this door is spiritual and internal and impenetrable except through the testimony of Jesus (Revelation 4,1).

Today, Jesus desires Independent Believers, liberated of a treasonous and impious clergy. His Apocalyptic “Angel” is sent to liberate those who have “eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to the Churches” (Revelation 2,11).
