The Warning and the Second Coming

The Warning predicted at Garabandal is the same as the first secret of Medjugorje. The following long quote is from my book, The Secrets of Medjugorje and Garabandal Revealed:

“Everything will stop during the brief time needed for the Warning (minutes, not hours). Electronics and vehicles will not function, except in cases of necessity. People who are asleep will be awakened for this event.

“The Warning is entirely supernatural. Each person will find themselves alone in their mind and heart with their conscience. God will touch each person’s soul. God will enlighten each person’s conscience in a way which is fitting to the uniqueness of each individual, within the limits of each person’s knowledge and experiences. People will understand the sins and the negative consequences of their sins, but only in so far as any sin is on the conscience. The Warning illuminates the conscience, but does not provide any type of Divine Revelation. The knowledge that is obtained by the Warning about each person’s own sins is essentially the same type of knowledge that could have been obtained by a very thorough examination of conscience. So this event does not compete with Sacred Tradition or Sacred Scripture as a source of Divine Revelation.

“In an interview, Conchita gave a succinct and accurate description of this event:

“the Warning will be like a revelation of our sins — and it will be seen and experienced equally by believers and non-believers and people of any religion whatsoever…. The Warning will be a correction of the conscience of the world.”

“Every single human person on earth without exception will experience the Warning. Every single human person on earth will be offered grace and mercy directly from God. Even prenatals in the womb will be touched by God; though they have no personal sins to be brought to mind, they will be given blessings of grace to prepare them for the great difficulties of the world into which they will be born, especially the gift of God’s grace to strengthen them against sin (but they will not be sinless).

“For most persons, those who are old enough to understand right from wrong, the Warning will take the form of an awakening of the conscience, making that person aware of his current unrepentant sins and tendency toward sin. God will offer all sinners the gift of repentance and conversion from these sins, as well as grace and mercy more generally.

“For those who are holy and have few sins, and for those who have thoroughly repented from their sins and been forgiven, the experience will be different. For them, their sorrow will be at the sufferings of Jesus Christ on the Cross for the sins of mankind, much more than over their own sins. They will join with Jesus Christ in His loving sorrow for the sinfulness of the world.”

The Warning is one of many events described in the prophecies of Garabandal and Medjugorje. However, these events of the ten secrets of Medjugorje and of the Warning, Miracle, and Chastisement of Garabandal, all occur within the first part of the tribulation.

Subsequently, as Sacred Scripture indicates and various Saints taught, there is a long respite from the tribulation.

Only much later, a few hundred years later, does the tribulation resume with its second part. This second part of the tribulation includes the reign of the Antichrist, followed by the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and the establishment of a long era of peace and holiness on earth. And only after that long time of peace does the general Resurrection and general Judgment occur.

    This is the information which Mirjana gave to Father Tomislav on November 5, 1983. He conveyed this information to the Pope on December 16, 1983. Father Vlasic’s letter was published in “Is the Virgin Mary appearing at Medjugorje?” (Paris, 1984), with this introduction:
    During the apparition of December 25, 1982, according to Mirjana, the Madonna confided to her the tenth and last secret, and revealed to her, the dates in which the different secrets will be realized. The Blessed Virgin revealed to Mirjana some aspects of the future, up to this point, in greater detail than to the other seers. For this reason, I am reporting here what Mirjana told me in a conversation of November 5, 1983. I summarized the essentials of her account, without literal quotation. Mirjana told me:
    Before the visible sign is given to mankind, there will be three warnings to the world. The warnings will be in the form of events on earth. Mirjana will be a witness to them. Ten days before one of the admonitions, Mirjana will notify a priest of her choice. The witness of Mirjana will be a confirmation of the apparitions and a stimulus for the conversion of the world.
    After the admonitions, the visible sign will appear on the site of the apparitions in Medjugorje for all the world to see. The sign will be given as a testimony to the apparitions and in order to call people back to faith.

    Admonitions means gentle or friendly reproof or counsel against oversight. It appears these supernatural events will be gentle and enough of a reproof for possible conversion

    This message states three warnings. I understand the first one is the warning, second one is consolation. What is the third warning?

    • Ron Conte says:

      First warning: the Warning Event described at Garabandal
      Second warning: the Consolation (given only to the repentant)
      Third warning: the conversion and healing of many repentant sinners worldwide

      At about the same time, or just after, the healings, the Permanent Sign will be placed at Medjugorje, at Garabandal, and at other places of true private revelation around the world.

      So the third secret is not only the Permanent Sign, but also worldwide healings and conversions. Conversion is a type of spiritual healing, so the healings are essentially in body and in soul.

    Ron pl.explain the big year gap between these 2 peirods. 1. Jesus told about this ? 2. Sacred Scripture indicates ?

    • Ron Conte says:

      The division of the tribulation into two parts, and the events in-between, are described in my eschatology books. An example from my book, The First Part of the Tribulation:

      Saint Methodius, Bishop of Olympus, on the first part…

      “A time will come when the enemies of Christ will boast: ‘We have subjected the earth and all its inhabitants, and the Christians cannot escape our hands.’ Then a Roman Emperor will arise in great fury against them…. Drawing his sword, he will fall upon the foes of Christianity and crush them. Then peace and quiet will reign on earth, and priests will be relieved of all their anxieties.

      … and on the second part:

      “In the last period Christians will not appreciate the great grace of God who provided a Great Monarch, a long duration of peace, a splendid fertility of the earth. They will be very ungrateful, lead a sinful life, in pride, vanity, unchastity, frivolity, hatred, avarice, gluttony and many other vices that the sins of men will stink more than a pestilence before God. Many will doubt whether the Catholic faith is the true and only saving one and whether the Jews are perhaps correct when they still expect the Messias. Many will be the false teachings and resultant bewilderment. The just God will in consequence give Lucifer and all his devils power to come on earth and tempt his godless creatures.”

      In Matthew, Jesus indicated the first part of the tribulation, by saying:
      {24:8} But all these things are just the beginning of the sorrows.

      He indicated the respite between the two parts by saying:
      {24:14} And this Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached throughout the entire world, as a testimony to all nations.

      And He indicated the second part by the last part of His eschatological discourse:

      {24:14} … And then the consummation will occur.

    Ron, please educate us , if anything happen against our Pope Benedict XVI in coming months.

  4. Ron Conte says:

    There are many more indications that the tribulation is divided into two parts, with the time of the Antichrist only in the second part. See my eschatology books

    Please read one of the latest messages from Pedro Regis: What is the actual suffering of the Church that the Virgin Mary is stating?

    3,643-Message of Our Lady Queen of Peace Candangolândia / DF broadcast on 23/04/2012
    Dear Sons and Daughters, forward without fear. God is on your side. Trust in Him who is your absolute Good and knows what you need. I came from heaven to lead you to My Son Jesus. Do not back. Open your hearts and accept God’s will for your lives. Now is the time of grace for each one of you. Listen to the voice of God and be filled with His love. If humanity could support the call to love, would soon healed spiritually. I invite you to live My appeals. I want to become saints, but you can not live in sin. Turn yourself to Jesus. He alone is your Way, Truth and Life. Bend your knees in prayer. A painful event will take place in Italy and will be great suffering for the Church . I suffer for what is coming to you . Courage. Who is the Lord will never experience the weight of defeat. This is the message I give you today on behalf of the Trinity. Thank you for permitting Me to reunite you here once more. I bless you in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

    • Ron Conte says:

      “A painful event will take place in Italy and will be great suffering for the Church.”

      I don’t know what this refers to. It might be the death of the Pope. I believe that Pope Benedict will die soon, within the next few months.
