This is “lesson 03”, but the lessons are in no particular order. The first few are based largely on the Secrets of La Salette.
The Antichrist will not be born until the kingdom of the ten kings has been in existence for about 100 years, or at least several generations. During the time of the kingdom of the ten kings, all the nations of the world will be divided into ten groups of nations, called kingdoms, with one prominent powerful leader over each kingdom. Each of these leaders is called a king, even if the leader might be elected and not literally be a monarch. Ten kings, one over each of ten kingdoms, will rule the world for about a century (maybe a little less or a little more). The world will become ever more wicked as this kingdom of the ten kings rules the world during that century (the 24th century; the 2300s, under the Gregorian calendar). At some point, the calendar system will change, so note that these dates are in the present calendar system used in the 20th and early 21st century.
Then, at the end of the 24th century, the Antichrist will be born. At La Salette, the Blessed Virgin Mary says this:
“It will be during this time that the antichrist will be born of a Hebrew religious, of a false Virgin who will have communication with the old serpent, the master of impurity; his father will be Bishop”
The Antichrist is a human being, with a human father and a human mother. His human father will be a Bishop in the Catholic Christian Church. Prior to this period of time, the Christians of the world will have been united into the one holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. Also prior to this period of time, all the religions of the world — except for Christianity, Judaism, and Islam — will have passed away. (That occurs by the end of the lesser tribulation, I think.)
So if the Antichrist’s father is a Bishop, he must be a Catholic Bishop. There will not be any other type of Bishop in the world, and all Christians will be Catholic Christians.
Now in some publications of the secrets of La Salette, the text says: “His father will be B.” That is deceitfulness on the part of translators. When Melanie wrote out her secrets, on one occasion she abbreviated the French word for Bishop, Eveque as Ev. That is clearly the abbreviation for Bishop, just as Fr. is the abbreviation for father. But not wanting to say anything negative about the Church, some translators obscured this assertion by the Blessed Virgin Mary and translated it as “B.” Translating words from Heaven carries a higher moral weight than other translations. This was a weighty error.
In the version of the secrets of La Salette sent by Melanie to the priest Abbe Combe, author of Le Secret De Melanie, the word “Eveque” is written out in full. There is no question that the secrets say the father of the Antichrist will be Bishop.
The father of the Antichrist will be a wicked Catholic Christian Bishop. This makes sense because, if all Catholics remained faithful to Christ, there would never be an Antichrist. Perhaps the whole world would have been converted by now, if all Christians lived the true faith well. So it is in a sense fitting that his father will be a very sinful Bishop. The worst sins in the world are sins against religion. And the Antichrist will be the most sinful human person ever.
Then the mother of the Antichrist will be “a Hebrew religious, of a false Virgin”. So his mother will claim to be a virgin, and yet be with child. She is a Hebrew, meaning of Hebraic descent, and likely she will have a Jewish background. This means that some of her ancestors will have been Jews. But she is called a religious, so this means she is a Catholic Christian, but very wicked, like the father of the Antichrist.
In this future time, knowledge of Christianity will be scant and distorted among the peoples of the world. If you ask a politician about the ideas and works of his opponent, during a bitter political rivalry, his answer is not trustworthy. He will distort any answer about his opponent. Similarly, the society of that time will spread false claims about Christianity. So when the mother of the Antichrist claims to be a virgin, yet she is with child, it is difficult to anticipate how this might be seen by the world at that time. She is apparently claiming to be the mother of a special child. And she does not wish the world to know that his father is a Catholic Bishop.
Just as the Antichrist is a false Christ, his mother will be a false virgin Mary. Since the Blessed Virgin Mary is most chaste and pure, the mother of the Antichrist will be exceedingly unchaste and impure.
The secret says that the mother of the Antichrist “will have communication with the old serpent, the master of impurity.” The mother of the Antichrist, perhaps his father also, and certainly the Antichrist himself will each have conversations with Satan. Then, when the Antichrist is an adult, Satan and other devils assist him in his evil works and his evil kingdom.
If any person is claimed to be the Antichrist, he must have a father who is a Bishop and a mother who is a nun of Hebraic descent. Also, the Antichrist cannot be born until the world has been ruled by the kingdom of the ten kings for about a century. As for the false prophetess, she lives during the same time period as the Antichrist.
