The Start of the End Times: Warning and Miracle

From a religious point of view, 2020 was highly remarkable. We can interpret this year, generally, as a punishment from the providence of God for the many sins of our modern society. The whole world was certainly under this punishment, as Covid-19 affected even remote places. Certainly, many individuals suffered innocently, especially children. For we adults, when we suffer severely it is generally the case that our suffering is partly a punishment for our sins, as we are all sinners. But severe suffering usually exceeds the punishment due from a merciful God even for grave sins. Each guilty person is innocent beyond the measure of their guilt. So we sinners also suffer innocently, despite our sins, when we suffer greatly. Even so, the pandemic of Covid-19 would have been averted if very many persons had repented, rather than continuing in sin.

I think that 2022 may well be the year of the Warning, Consolation, and Miracle, followed within weeks or months by the formal start of the End Times.

Recall that the End Times is divided into two parts:
* the first part of the tribulation
* an inter-tribulation period
* the second part of the tribulation

The start of the End Times is only the start of this “first part”, often called the lesser tribulation. It will be an increasingly severe set of sufferings on the whole world as a punishment for sin and as a purification. The Church will survive and will be greatly purified. The world will be corrected and will, for a generation or so at the start of the inter-tribulation period, be led by the Church and the faithful. Then the world will slip gradually into ever more sinfulness, until the very wicked period of time called the second part of the tribulation. After that, Christ returns to set all things right.

The Warning — if indeed it does occur in 2022 — will happen on Good Friday, at the same time as the death of Christ on the Cross, which I have determined to be 2:51 p.m. Jerusalem Standard Time, which is 8:51 a.m. East Coast Time in the U.S. on Good Friday, April 15th, 2022.

The Consolation occurs on Easter Sunday, April 17th, 2022.

The Miracle occurs on May 12th, a Thursday, the vigil of the feast of Blessed Imelda, who died on May 12th on the vigil of the feast of the Ascension, after receiving holy Communion. Although her feast is formally on May 13th, she died on May 12th and Saints are usually celebrated on the day they died as the day they entered Heaven.

The Miracle is threefold:
1. miraculous healings of millions of persons worldwide, though not everyone will be healed. IF THIS HAPPENS in 2022, it will end the pandemic in a single day. I said “if”. I cannot be certain that 2022 is the year, and my readers know that I have been wrong about the dates for the start of this sequence of events many times.

2. permanent miraculous signs will be placed at the sites of Marian apparitions throughout the world. This will expose false claims of alleged apparitions, as those false locations will not have permanent miraculous signs. The signs can be seen and photographed and recorded/broadcast by video, but they cannot be touched. The Signs will be something that has never been on earth before. So that would mean either something celestial or, as is my opinion, something from the Garden of Eden.

I think that the Garden of Eden, the paradise of Adam and Eve, is a place that is discontinuous with this universe. It is in that regard like Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory. The Garden of Eden was never a place on earth. It is earth-like, but unfallen. When Adam and Eve fell from grace, they were no longer fit to live in an unfallen place, so they were placed upon this fallen earth. (The created universe fell eons ago, when some of the angels fell from grace and became devils.)

The permanent miraculous signs might be something from the Garden of Eden, most likely different unfallen trees from Eden. These trees will have a remarkable appearance, like nothing on earth. They will represent the “tree of life”, which is the Cross of Jesus Christ as the source of all grace and all salvation.

I could be wrong about the nature of these Signs. But that is my opinion.

3. The conversion of many unbelievers. The miraculous healings and the permanent signs at the places of Catholic Marian apparitions will clearly indicate to the world that Christianity is the truest form of religion, and Catholicism is the truest form of Christianity. The result will be a vast number of conversions to belief in God, to Christianity, and also specifically to Catholicism.

Note that this wave of conversions will not make Catholicism the only religion. We sinners have our faculty of reason obscured and our will weakened by the fallen state and by our sins and the sins of society. And so Jews and Muslims will generally respond to the above events by a great devotion to their own religion, though many will also convert to Christianity. Protestants and the Orthodox will generally be more devout in their own faiths, though many will also convert to Catholicism. But overall these events will put Catholic Christianity at the forefront of the whole world.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

In the same year as the Warning and Miracle, the first four Seals of the Seven Seals and the four horsemen of the Apocalypse will begin:
First Seal/Horseman is World War 3
Second is severe civil unrest
Third is a worldwide famine, worse in developed nations
Fourth is death from many causes and the fear of death

Notice for my End Times articles:
1. The End Times is divided into two parts: the first part is for this generation, then there is a long respite of a few hundred years, and finally the second part of the End Times occurs with the Return of Christ.
2. This first part of the End Times (or “tribulation”) does not include the Antichrist, nor the Return of Jesus Christ, nor the general Resurrection. Those things occur much later.
3. Do not believe what the news and entertainment industry says about the future, nor about religion. Do not listen to claimed prophets, visionaries, and the like, when they interpret current events or predict the future, especially when they are celebrated by the media. Do not listen to those who accuse any Pope or Ecumenical Council of grave errors or grave failings of faith. The Church will never fail or go astray. Never.
4. I anticipate that I and my writings on the future will be subject to distortions, lies, and false accusations. Do not believe that I wrote, or said, or predicted something unless the claim comes from my websites or my books, and is consistent with the rest of what I am writing and saying.
5. Please note that my predictions are speculative and fallible, and that my writings on the future have erred many times in the past. My eschatology is presented for the readers’ consideration, and should not be treated as certain or absolute.

{24:6} For you will hear of battles and rumors of battles. Take care not to be disturbed. For these things must be, but the end is not so soon.

    I too can’t help thinking that God permitted Covid as a prelude to, and a sign of what’s to come, foretold outright by the seers at Garabandal, and later hinted at by those from Medjugorie.

    Every day when I pray the Divine Mercy chaplet, I ask Jesus to send us the Great Warning.

    Causing Covid to immediately disappear would certainly be an undeniable miracle, if it occurs.

    If I may, this seems a good place to implore everyone who reads this blog to keep a copy of and venerate Jesus’ Divine Mercy image, and to daily pray the Divine Mercy chaplet while contemplating His passion, if you don’t already. He literally begged St. Faustina at every turn to make these desires of His known to all. I believe the Divine Mercy devotion is a gift to prepare us for, and sustain us through, the events described in this article.

  2. Matt says:

    Message of Our Lady from Medjugorje of January 25, 2022, given to Marija:

    “Dear children! Today I invite you to return to personal prayer. Children, do not forget that Satan is strong and wants to attract as many souls as possible. Therefore be vigilant in prayer and determined in good. I am with you and I bless you all with my maternal blessing.

    Thank you for having responded to my call ”.

  3. Jay says:

    thanks Ron, I hope you are right on this one. Waiting for the Pope to visit Russia. I hope you also have been well.

    I always assumed the sign was related to what Saint Faustina said: (I thought this was your idea originally)

    “All light in the heavens will be extinguished, and there will be great darkness over the whole earth. Then the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky, and from the openings where the hands and the feet of the Savior were nailed will come forth great lights which will light up the earth for a period of time. This will take place shortly before the last day (Diary, 83).”]

    • Ron Conte says:

      I don’t think that event, described by Saint Faustina, is related to the Warning. It is a much later event, “shortly before the last day”.

  4. King Robert the Bruce says:

    I read an article translated from the Spanish daily paper called El Mundo it was an interview with the Garabandal seer Mari Cruz. Imust say she was saying some very strange things claiming that the covid pandemic was the warning and that she doubts the apparittions were real although the other seer Jacinta has distanced herself from Mari Cruz claims it remided me that the seers were told by Our Lady that they would deny the apparitions one day although Conchita and Jacinta have certainly not denied the apparitions.

  5. James Belcher says:

    I believe the year 2022 will now be the time for the Warning and Miracle. It also appears that WW3 is around the corner where Iran, Russia and China are poised to invade their neighbors. I cannot see the USA with NATO allies winning this war. I can see the USA holding its own but weakened. As for NATO, I see France, Italy and Great Britain being torn apart. I’m guessing the Great Catholic Monarch and Angelic Shepherd will follow and win WW4 . All of this happening from a few months from now to the mid 2030s’. Its going to be a rough sled for the upcoming 15 years or so.

  6. Philip says:

    Hi Ron,
    In one of your previous articles ( you wrote that world war 3 will start when the Arab Muslim nations of the Middle East and northern Africa will invade and conquer Europe.Do you see now any signs of this in the political arena?

    • Ron Conte says:

      I still think that the first horseman and first Seal is that same War (WW3). I think Iran already has nuclear weapons, as evidenced by their aggressive behavior beginning in May 2019. But Covid has delayed their plans to do anything with that new power. The Warning and Miracle will scare the extremists, and cause them to realize time is short for them. They will be afraid of losing all power. So this will prompt them to take control of the nations of that region, and then go to war.
