I published my first book of eschatology in 1998. I currently have 8 books of eschatology in print here. The latest is a complete and concise Summary of Future Events from now till the very end. This post covers the very beginning events, on the threshold, before the SHTF.
The Book of Revelation is the last book of the New Testament. It’s a book of eschatology which describes the End Times (aka the tribulation). The events are organized by the use of symbols: Seven Seals describe seven sets of events. The Seventh Seal is divided into Seven Trumpets (a related set of events). The Seventh Trumpet is divided into the Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath (the last set of punishments).
What most persons do not realize is that the Tribulation is divided into two parts. The first part of the tribulation occurs in our generation. We stand now on the threshold of that set of events. Then there is a long respite between the two parts, the inter-tribulation period, lasting a few hundred years. Finally, the second part of the tribulation occurs in the 25th century (the 2430s).
The first four Seals are the same set of events as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The reason for the additional figure of four horsemen is that the first four Seal occur at the same time and are interrelated, whereas the rest of the Seals occur one at a time, individually.
The first Horseman and Seal is World War 3. In that War, the Arab Muslim nations of the Middle East and northern Africa, led by extremists, led in particular by two persons, the leader of Iran and the leader of Iraq (ISIS), attack the United States, then Europe, then they attack further south in Africa. They conquer and occupy a vast territory, including all of Europe.
But this post is about what happens BEFORE the first Seal and first horseman, i.e. before World War 3. The events listed below are not necessarily in chronological order.
ONE: just as I’ve been predicting publicly for years now [see some examples here], conservative Catholic leaders will — strike that — have now accused the Pope of heresy. By that accusation, they have committed formal schism and are automatically excommunicated. Think about this for a moment. The group of Catholics who have long proclaimed themselves to be 100% faithful to the Magisterium, who have long defended one Pope after another, have rejected the Papal Magisterium and accused him of formal heresy. That is apocalyptic.
(And, no, the Pope is not a heretic. The accusation is based on ignorance and arrogance.)
The next event will be another controversial teaching by Pope Francis, which will cause the conservatives to finally stop pretending to be in communion with the one true Catholic Church (while opposing the Pope). In truth, they have already departed by rejecting Pope Francis as their Teacher and Shepherd. But this schism will progress to the point that conservative Bishops, priests, deacons, and laity will no longer associate with the rest of the Catholic Church.
TWO: Pope Francis will resign, due to the schism.
THREE: The next Pope will be Cardinal Arinze as Pope Pius XIII; he will be very conservative, of course.
FOUR: under the next conservative Pope, many liberal Catholics will depart from Communion with the Pope and the Magisterium. They will no longer attend Mass or even call themselves Catholic. This group will be larger than the conservative group which departed under Pope Francis.
FIVE: Trump is a one-term president. The next President will be a Democrat and a woman, probably Elizabeth Warren.
SIX: Hassan Rohani, the President of Iran, will become also the Supreme Leader of Iran. About the same time, Iran will announce that it has nuclear bombs. It will then ramp up its nuclear program and openly enrich uranium to weapon grade purity.
SEVEN: Iran and ISIS will make a pact. Iran will help ISIS take complete control of Iraq and Syria. They will then foment rebellion in the other nations of that region, to put extremists in power.
EIGHT: The Warning of Garabandal, Good Friday of 2022. This event is also the first secret of Medjugorje.
NINE: The Consolation, which is the second secret of Medjugorje.
TEN: the Miracle of Garabandal, which is the third secret of Medjugorje.
Those ten events, somewhat arbitrarily numbered as ten, happen prior to the first Seal and first horseman, World War 3. The War begins when Iran sends a nuclear bomb from Iran, across land through Iraq to a port in Syria. The nuclear bomb is then sent by ship to New York City and is exploded right next to the headquarters of the United Nations. That event begins World War 3.
