THERE'S a great final spiritual battle and apocalyptic event which is unfolding right in our very own eyes.
The internet is flooded with videos and writings about the New World Order, government and currency developments. There are so many messages about the End times. Meanwhile, there is also the message of hope and conversion in Christ through a Messenger crossing barriers across the globe – the "Woman clothed with the sun and crowned with the stars" – The Blessed Mother Mary, in regular apparitions to the visionaries in Medjugorje who at these times, have appeared to the visionaries in regularly in many parts of the world.
Our dear priests and pastors too are crying out for repentance and faith in these troubled times. Yet, the real battle is in our hearts, for between wrong doing in Satan and the love God. However, while there is reason to fear, there is also reason to rejoice for Mary said, "In the end, my immaculate heart will triumph." Keep our hearts guarded, for the principalities of darkness are determined to bring us to eternal defeat.
The Republicans call the change of currency from dollar to a UN nations controlled denomination as an affront to the sovereignty and the Constitution of the United States. Yet, the Bible scholars, pastors, priests and the religious warn that this is the work of Satan in the Soul of the Beast who wants to rule the world in a disguised reign of peace turned most terribly scary and ruthless to destroy the soul and spirit of mankind. The reign of the 666 where one cannot buy or sell is at hand.
On the other hand, the Blessed Mother continually speaks of the victory of Christ for believers who call upon the name of the Lord in the messages of appeal for prayers for the conversion of as many sinners and people as possible thru apparitions and wonders for those who refuse to believe and for an increasing faith for those who already believe.
Meanwhile too, pastors and Christian leaders have been crying out for conversion and unity with God in TV programs and in churches so intense that some of them have been shamelessly shedding tears as they make their exhortations in their respective congregations.
One of those messages stands out from the Blessed Mother: The Lasting Sign at Medjugorje
ABC News 20/20, Caritas, and its founder worked together on a special piece about Medjugorje for the 20/20 news program. This later resulted in the one hour documentary with Martin Sheen. After months of interviews, the name of the documentary became known as “The Lasting Sign,” a name signifying a wonderful, tremendous miracle to appear upon Apparition Hill directly by God.
The third secret of Medjugorje is to be a Lasting Sign. The visionaries are not able to say what the sign will be, but they have said that it will be a permanent sign, beautiful and indestructible, and all who come to Medjugorje will be able to see it.
The following are the visionaries own words explaining what they can about the third secret. Martin Sheen, during the interviews for “The Lasting Sign,” asked Ivan the following questions.
Martin Sheen: “So many people have heard of the prediction of a sign that will occur evidently here in Medjugorje that will confirm that these apparitions have, in fact, been taking place with you and your friends and the Holy Mother. Any ideas of what this sign might be?”
Ivan: “We know the sign and when it will be and what it will be. It will be on the place of the apparitions, where Our Lady appeared for the first time, and all the rest is a secret.” 1
Vicka, during an interview by Fr. Janko Bubalo:
Janko: “Tell me where the Virgin will give that sign.
Vicka: “On Podbrdo. At the sight of the first apparitions.
Janko: “Will the sign be in the Heavens or on earth?
Vicka: “On earth.
Janko: “Will it appear spontaneously, or will it gradually appear?
Janko: “Will everyone be able to see it?
Vicka: “Whoever comes here will.
Janko: “Will the sign be temporary, or will it be permanent?
Janko: “Will the sign be able to be destroyed by anyone?
Vicka: “By no one.
Janko: “You think that or…
Vicka: “The Virgin said so.
Janko: “Do you know exactly what the sign will be?
Janko: “Do you know when the Virgin will make it evident to the rest of us?
Vicka: “I know that also.
Janko: “And why is the Virgin leaving the sign here?
Vicka: “Why to show the people that She is here among us…I’ll just say this: whoever does not believe without a sign will not believe with a sign. And, I’ll tell you this too: woe to him who delays his conversion, waiting for the sign. I once told you that many would come, and perhaps, even kneel before the sign, but will, nonetheless, not believe. Be happy that you are not among them!” TO BE CONTINUED...
