It seems the world is falling apart, and the disorder and sufferings are worse than ever before. Covid-19 has revived itself with its Delta Variant. Iran is either close to getting nuclear weapons, or may already have one or more bombs. Society has fallen into grave errors, including disordered ideas on gender and the so-called critical race theory. Violence is on the increase, in the form of protests as well as violent crimes. And there is a schism already underway within the Church, whereby the self-proclaimed “most faithful” Pharisees of today put themselves above Popes and Councils to believe whatever they like. There are many other sufferings and disorders in the world today. It is difficult to say if these are so much worse than in the past that they would indicate the End Times.
I’ve written several books of eschatology, the most recent of which is: Summary of Future Events. The first few events of the End Times may be the events predicted at Garabandal and Medjugorje. The Warning is an illumination of consciences of everyone in the world. This occurs on Good Friday of who knows which year. I’ve been wrong on the year many times. But the next year that fits the hits we have about the timing is 2022. If that is the year of the Warning, then the Consolation will be that next Easter Sunday (two days later), and the great Miracle will be Thursday, May 12th, the feast of Blessed Imelda, a young martyr of the Eucharist. The miracle is worldwide miraculous healings of millions of persons (but not everyone will be healed). That would end the Covid-19 crisis and put the world in a better state.
However, it is inevitable that many persons will not repent at the Warning. And some few months after the Miracle, the End Times begin with a War. It is the first event of the first part of the tribulation: World War 3, which is the first Seal of the seven Seals, and the first of the four figurative horsemen of the apocalypse. This will be a war of the Arab Muslim nations of the Middle East and northern Africa against the U.S. and Europe. Already Europe is experiencing a type of internal invasion of violent Muslim youths who commit many crimes. When the War begins, they will undermine the nations from within, as the war rages from without. Europe will fall to the Muslim extremists.
The other events of the four horsemen are these:
1. World War 3
2. severe civil unrest (violent protests and violent crimes)
3. famine especially in wealthy nations
4. death from a variety of causes and the fear of death
Before these events happen, a number of preparatory events must occur:
* Warning, Consolation, and Miracle
* announcement by Iran that they have nuclear bombs
* a pact between Iran and ISIS (controlling Iraq)
* consolidation of the Arab Muslim nations of the Middle East and northern Africa into one group of nations, led by Iran and Iraq. That means Iraq must be captured by extremists.
There is perhaps enough time between now and summer of next years, when I expect the War to begin, to fit all these events. There is only so much time left.
My predictions concerning the first part of the tribulation are limited by certain factors. I expect the End Times to begin during the reign of Pope Francis. The great Catholic monarch is, I believe, Ferdinand Zvonimir, who is a young adult. The prediction is: “he will be in war until his 40th year”, which year would be 2037. That would be the end date for World War 4. So there is only so much time to fit World War 3, an inter-war period, World War 4 and then the last events of the Seals from the first part of the tribulation. The Angelic Shepherd is Fr. Zlatko Sudac, who is an older adult (older than Ferdinand). He received the Seal of the Living God in 1999, and is a true miracle worker and Saint among Saints. I expect him to become Roman Pontiff about the year 2029.
Then the schism that is currently underway must reach full poisonous bloom. While each teaching or decision of Pope Francis continues to enrage them, they still pretend to be Catholic Christians. I expect them to depart from communion with the Pope before the End Times begins.
