What To Expect at the Warning of Garabandal

If 2022 is the year of the Warning of Garabandal, here is what to expect at the Warning.

In whatever year this event occurs, it will occur on Good Friday, at the same time that Jesus died on the Cross, and it will occur throughout the world at the same time. So the time on clocks will be different, depending on which time zone people are in, but the event will be experienced by people all at the same time.

Jesus died at “the ninth hour”, which refers to time kept by the position of the sun, where the sixth hour is solar noon, and the ninth hour is midway between solar noon and sunset. From my study of Biblical chronology, I think that Jesus died about 2:51 p.m., a little earlier than 3 p.m., due to the length of daytime during the time of the year when the Crucifixion occurred. If I’m correct that the Warning occurs at the time Jesus died, then the Warning will begin about 9 minutes before 3 p.m. Of course, it is possible that God will simply place the Warning at 3 p.m., regardless of the exact time Jesus died on the Cross. God is not restricted by dates and times.

When it is 2:51 p.m. in Jerusalem, it will be 8:51 a.m. on the east coast of the United States, and 5:51 a.m. on the west coast of the U.S. So by considering the time zone in which you live, you can determine the time (or approximate time) of the Warning on that day.

The Warning occurs on Good Friday because Jesus died for our sins on the Cross, and the Warning illuminates the conscience to show us the sins that we have committed. The purpose of the Warning is to call the sinners of the world to repentance, so that they may be forgiven by Jesus. All the graces of our path of salvation are from the Cross of Jesus. He merited grace and salvation for us by His sacrifice on the Cross.

When the Warning begins, the whole world will hear a very loud sound and the whole world will see a very bright flash of light. Anyone who is asleep will be awakened. The sound and light will obtain everyone’s attentions. It is holy Angels sent by God who cause this sound and light.

Then each person will suddenly find themselves alone with their conscience. The prevenient grace of God, which no one can refuse or resist, will illuminate each conscience, so that each of us knows the sins that we committed. These sins are the things that we did, believing these things to be wrong, and the things that we refused to do, believing that this refusal was wrong. We will see our sins in what we did, and what we failed to do, in so far as these sins were against our own conscience.

This illumination of conscience will not show us our sins or our lives or our souls as God sees them, nor will this event show us the things we have done that were good or bad, sinful or moral, according to objective truth. The Warning ONLY shows us our sins according to conscience, not according to absolute right or wrong. This point is very important.

If you have committed a sinful act, even one that is very gravely immoral, but with a sincere but mistaken conscience, this type of sin will NOT be shown at the Warning. For you did not act against your conscience, but instead acted with invincible ignorance. If you have committed a moral act, mistakenly thinking that the act was a sin, then this act will be shown to you as a sin, even though the act was objectively moral, because you believed the act to be a sin and yet you chose to commit that act against your conscience.

So one cannot discern objective truth on good and evil from the Warning. That event is merely an illumination of conscience. It is the same discerning of one’s sins that one could obtain in any generation, by any person, simply by a very thorough examination of conscience.

After the Warning, some persons might claim that certain acts must be moral or that they and their peers must be on the right course in morality or religion, simply because they were not shown these acts or this course of action as sinful at the Warning. But they will be mistaken because the Warning is only an illumination of conscience and conscience can be wrong.

The Warning is absolutely NOT a type of “mini judgment”; it is not like the particular judgment, which shows each person all the sins of their life objectively. The Warning does NOT show us our sins as God sees them.

Instead, the Warning only shows us the sins that still remain on our conscience, and only as our conscience sees those sins. Those sins from which one has repented are not seen at the Warning.

Those who repent will become holier. Those who refuse to repent will become more sinful. So the divide between the good and the bad in society will become wider. Some who repent will soon slip back into their past sins.

This event of the Warning will last only minutes, perhaps about a quarter of an hour, said one of the visionaries of Garabandal (the site of the Marian apparitions that predicted this event).

During the Warning, almost all electronic devices will stop working, except those of grave necessity, like pacemakers for the heart or mechanical ventilators and the like. Vehicles will cease to work, except planes in the air and other vehicles which would cause grave harm if they ceased to work. When the Warning is over, then electronics and machinery will return to normal.

No one can refuse the Warning. The type of grave given is prevenient grace, which cannot be refused. However, the Warning is a call to repentance, and the grace offered for that repentance can be refused. So everyone will receive this illumination of conscience, but not everyone will respond by repenting.

Those who repent will be in sorrow at their sins, more or less sorrow depending on the sins. Those who refuse to repent might respond in various ways: with fear or anger or pride or despair. Some persons will respond by committing suicide. I fear for the possible loss of salvation, for those who respond in this way. Some persons will pretend to repent, so that they will not lose their jobs in religion or politics or the media.

The Warning will be shocking to many persons. Some persons, very few as a percentage of the population, but many as a number worldwide, will die of shock at seeing their sins. This will be particularly true not so much of the most sinful, but of the most frail. So an elderly frail person, or someone who is afflicted with a severe chronic ailment, might die at the Warning without being particularly sinful, whereas most of the wicked persons in the world will not die of fright at seeing their sins.

A significant number of politicians throughout the world will die at the Warning, due to the shock of seeing their many unrepentant sins. This will cause significant changes to the world political landscape.

Repentance from sin will cause a great deal of lasting change in politics and society throughout the world. Many politicians will change their political and social views, due to the illumination of conscience, and so will many voters.

The Warning will generally cause much fear in society. People will wonder if the End of the world is near — it is not. This is only the very beginning of the end times; the end of the end times is hundreds of years later.

This fear at the Warning will cause people to panic buy food and other goods. It may lead some persons to commit crimes out of fear, and also because they refused to repent of their sins and so became more sinful.

Note Well: IF this is the year of the Warning, Consolation, and Miracle, THEN this is also the year that the End Times begins, with War, Civil Unrest, Famine, and death from a variety of causes.

    Ron. Thanks for your insight and effort

  2. Barbara says:

    Hi Ron
    I think I remember you saying that the Warning was the same as the first secret of Medjugorje.
    If this is the case, then Mirianja should contact the priest and he in turn should make an announcement three days before Good Friday.
    Not sure if I have my facts straight here, but if it is correct then we should have an early indication of the Warning.

  3. Jeff Obrien says:

    Thank you for writing this piece, Ron. To all: Pray. Fast. Go to confession. Priests will be overwhelmed with those seeking to repent and confess, so go now and change your life today. You have a little under 2 weeks!!

  4. King Robert the Bruce says:

    Ron excuse my ignorance but can you remind me again how you came to the conclusion that the second secret is the consolation.

  5. Dennis says:

    Ron, can you address the ‘announcements’ that are mentioned at Garabandal and Medjugorje – some of the Seers state that they will make statements seven days prior to certain of the events.
