The Return of Jesus Christ

After the fall of the Antichrist, the faithful go out and preach the Gospel openly and without fear for a certain number of days. Then Jesus Christ returns in all His glory, with the Blessed Virgin Mary. The whole world sees His return. Many wicked persons repent and are baptized.

But there is one more attempt by the wicked to rule the world. Ten new wicked kings rise up, to try to reestablish the kingdom of the ten kings. They openly worship devils. They hate the kingdom of the Antichrist, which ruined the former “glory” of the kingdom of the ten kings. The Antichrist and the false prophetess are taken into custody by these kings, and treated like slaves, like pets. These wicked kings gather the unrepentant sinners of the world

Jesus then sends out the last afflictions of the tribulation, but this time only on the unrepentant sinners. And even though the wicked of the world saw the two prophets come to live, saw Jesus return, and know that the Antichrist is a liar, many of them still refuse to repent. One severe affliction after another punishes the wicked. Even so, the ten wicked kings rise up, and they gather for battle against Christ and his faithful.

{19:19} And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies, having been gathered together to do battle against him who was sitting upon the horse, and against his army.
{19:20} And the beast was apprehended, and with him the false prophetess, who in his presence caused the signs, by which she seduced those who accepted the character of the beast and who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the pool of fire burning with sulphur.
{19:21} And the others were slain by the sword that proceeds from the mouth of him who was sitting upon the horse. And all the birds were sated with their flesh.

There is no war or battle. The wicked are destroyed by God. The Antichrist and the false prophetess are thrown into Hell, alive. The rest of the wicked are killed and then judged by God and sent to Hell.

Jesus then establishes His kingdom on earth. All the Saints and Martyrs of history, of the near and distant past, are given the true Resurrection. They assist the Church in ruling over the world. Jesus ascends to Heaven. The Blessed Virgin Mary is assumed into Heaven. The Church then reigns supreme over the whole world for about 12 centuries. Satan and the other devils are bound, unable to tempt humanity during this time.

At the end of the 1200 years, Satan is released with his fellow devils, and they are permitted to tempt humanity. A vast number of human persons go astray, and they gather again to wage war against the Church and the faithful.

{20:7} And when the thousand years will have been completed, Satan shall be released from his prison, and he will go out and seduce the nations which are upon the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog. And he will gather them together for battle, those whose number is like the sand of the sea.
{20:8} And they climbed across the breadth of the earth, and they encompassed the camp of the Saints and the Beloved City.
{20:9} And fire from God descended from heaven and devoured them. And the devil, who seduced them, was cast into the pool of fire and sulphur,
{20:10} where both the beast and the false prophetess shall be tortured, day and night, forever and ever.

These wicked persons are destroyed by God, and are then thrown into Hell. But notice that the Antichrist and the false prophetess are already in Hell, having been sent there prior to the 1200 years. So this time of peace and holiness on earth starts after the Antichrist is defeated, and ends with the general Resurrection and general Judgment.

* first part of the tribulation
* inter-tribulation period
* second part of the tribulation
* first Return of Jesus, followed by his second ascension
* 1200 years of peace and holiness
* second Return of Jesus for the Resurrection and Judgment

  1. King Robert the Bruce says:

    Ron was the vision that pope Leo XIII had of satan appearing before the throne of god and challenging him for more time and power to destroy the church what our lady was talking about when she allowed satan to appear to one of the seers at medjugorie and our lady then told the seer satan had appeared before god to challenge his church. Was our lady confirming what happened in 1884 in the Vatican

  2. yep says:

    Fr Brian Harrison demonstrates that Pope Francis intends to teach that the death penalty is intrinsically evil

    • Ron Conte says:

      We don’t know the Pope’s intentions. The Pope cannot teach and has not taught that the death penalty is intrinsically evil, as that would be contrary to the infallible teaching of the ordinary universal magisterium. He said inadmissible and contrary to the Gospel. Inadmissible under the judgment that the circumstances are such that it is not needed. Contrary to the Gospel since we look forward to a time on earth when it will not be needed, when God’s will be done on earth as in heaven.
