Previously, in books and posts, I predicted:
* that Iran would obtain nuclear weapons (as of May of 2019, I believe they successfully obtained working nuclear bombs)
* that Hassan Rouhani would take the role of Supreme Leader, in place of Ali Khamenei, so that he would at the same time be President of Iran and Supreme Leader.
* that next he would consolidate power, so as to become a dictator
* that his goal in seizing power is to start an apocalyptic war with the West, so as to bring about the reappearance of al-Mahdi, the 12th Imam, and usher in a worldwide Islamic Caliphate.
* and he has no qualms about nuking an entire city, toward this goal.
* that after Rouhani consolidates power, he will announce that Iran has nukes, thereby initiating a rush by extremists to join with Iran against the West.
* then Iran makes a pact with ISIS and helps ISIS take control of Iraq, so that Iran can be at the head of Shiites and, by means of ISIS, the head of Sunnis as well.
* They will place like-minded extremists at the head of all the nations of that region, by supporting coups, by battles, or by outright (small) wars.
* Then they will be ready to attack the West, beginning with the U.S.
Be advised that the extremist version of Twelvers sometimes talk about killing everyone who refuses to convert to extremist Islam, up to billions of persons.
Please understand that I believe peaceful devout Muslims are in the grace of God, and will go to Heaven, along with all persons of good will. The persons I oppose are extremists, who are willing to massacre millions to obtain power for themselves. As for the Twelvers, I think only some of them are extremists. The belief in twelve prominent Imams, who succeeded Muhammad, peace be upon him, and other attendant beliefs does not make one an extremists.
Soon, the extremist Muslims will rise to power, and all Muslims will have to choose sides. Some will side with love of others and tolerance for those who disagree; others will side with the extremists and participate in terrible crimes against the innocent.
We are moving toward the start of the first part of the tribulation, the very beginning of the end times. The first suffering of the apocalypse is World War 3, between the Muslim extremists and the West. As a preparation for this event, Iran will first become the leader of the Arab Muslim nations of the Middle East and northern Africa, along with Iraq, led by ISIS, and they will form one group of nations, with extremists in power in every nation.
The Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) is devastating Iran. Soon Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei will die, either by the virus or by assassination, with the virus as the pretext for his killing. Then Rouhani will use the Coronavirus as his excuse for cancelling the next Iran Presidential elections (which he is not eligible to participate in). He will make himself the next Supreme Leader, and will retain the position of President, essentially for life. He will consolidate power, purging the civilian and military leadership of all opposition. He does this so that he can undertake his extremist-Twelver plan to start an apocalyptic war with the West, using nuclear weapons — a plan Ali Khamenei would not approve.
People in the West think that Khamenei is a danger, being a conservative, and that Rouhani is a “moderate”. But really Rouhani represents grave danger to the world, not Khamenei. Rouhani’s rise to power should be viewed by the world like Hitler’s rise to power. Seriously, he is that dangerous, that blood-thirsty, that wicked.
Once the Coronavirus finishes infecting most Iranians, those who survive are (probably) immune. So it will cease to be a problem for them, even as the rest of the world struggles.
Closing down a nation, to slow the virus, only slows the virus. Maybe it is the wisest course, as there might be a vaccine or treatment soon. But there are risks to either course.
I think the most likely timing for the Warning, Consolation, and Miracle is 2022 or 2023, but it remains a possibility, an outside chance, that the Warning will be this Good Friday. Prepare your soul, in any case.
The Warning helps to initiate the end times by striking fear in the hearts of extremist Muslims, so that they rush to violence and to World War 3. They will be afraid that repentant Muslims will gain control, suppressing extremism and depriving them of power.
The Warning also precipitates the great schism in the Catholic Church. Many heretics, fearful that they will lose all power within religion, will break away from the Pope and set out on their own. They will be afraid that repentant Catholics will gain control, suppressing their religious extremism and depriving them of power. (Yes, I am comparing the papal accusers to extremist Muslims. All religious extremism is alike.)
In whatever year:
The Warning on Good Friday
The Consolation on Easter Sunday
The Miracle on May 11 or 12 (unless it is this year)
The Apocalypse draws near. The sufferings of today are only a preparation, so that should tell you how bad things will get when the end times actually arrive.

March 18, 2020 message from our Lady of Medjugorje to Mirjana:
My Son as God has always looked beyond time. I, as his mother, through him see through time.
I see beautiful things and bad things. But I see that there is love and it must be made sure that it is made manifest.
My children, you cannot be happy if you do not love one another, if you do not have love in every situation and in every moment of your life.
And I as a mother come to you through love.
To help you know true love, to know my Son.
This is why I call you to continually renew your thirst for love, faith and hope.
The only source from which you can quench your thirst is trust in God, my Son.
My children in moments of unease and renunciation, it is enough that you seek the face of my Son. Live his words and don’t be afraid.
Pray and love with sincere feelings, with good deeds and help that the world changes and my heart triumphs.
Like my Son, I also tell you to love one another, because without love there is no salvation. I thank you my children. ”
Our Lady concluded by saying to Mirjana that she will no longer have the apparitions every 2nd of the month, but only on March 18th.
Wow. This is significant! No more messages to World on 2nd of Month. This means that there will be one more message to World from our Lady of Medjugorje on March 25 before Good Friday.
Medjugorje.com just released that after Mirjana received her annual March 18th birthday message from our lady and that after the message was given, she relayed that there would be No more 2nd of the month messages. I feel this is a time for us to slow down and see what’s really important in our life, spend time pressing into God, making Him first in our life, trusting Him and praising Him, repenting and loving others as God loves us. A time to get our house, our spiritual house in order and as our Lady says….this is truly a time of Grace that we are living in. May we all grow closer to God during this time and continue to learn to love others as God loves.
In His Strength and Fiat!
Can you talk about Martyrs of the Eucharist and specifically this year 2020? Does the martyr have to be a saint?
A young martyr of the Eucharist, not necessarily a Saint. My pick is Blessed Imelda, a favorite of Pope Francis, by the way. Her feast would fall on the right day in 2022 or 2023, but not this year. However, I could be wrong, so be prepared in case the Warning is this year on Good Friday.
I have just read a report that Our Lady has informed mirjana the visionary that her apparitons on the 2nd of each month will cease from today does this have any significance to the tribulation beginning Ron.
It means the time is drawing near.
I find your speculative opinions on this topic interesting. However, if this article form Jerusalem Post is right: “The coronavirus could spell the end of Iran’s regime…” that would be a much better outcome indeed. https://www.jpost.com/Opinion/The-coronavirus-could-spell-the-end-of-Irans-regime-and-thats-not-good-621827
Here’s an interesting article on “The coronavirus could spell the end of Iran’s regime…” by the Jerusalem Post. Could it be possible? Maybe their journalists are being hopeful?? Who knows???
No, but if Kahmenei dies, there will be a power struggle and then a purge by whoever wins.
