The Coming Illumination
By James Fifth
"And I saw, when he had opened the sixth seal, and behold there was a great earthquake,
and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair: and the whole moon became as blood:
And the stars from heaven fell upon the earth, as the fig tree casteth its green
figs when it is shaken by a great wind: And the heaven departed as a book folded
up: and every mountain, and the islands were moved out of their places. And the
kings of the earth, and the princes, and tribunes, and the rich, and the strong,
and every bondman, and every freeman, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks
of mountains: And they say to the mountains and the rocks: Fall upon us, and hide
us from the face of him that sitteth upon the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb:
For the great day of their wrath is come, and who shall be able to stand?"
Revelations 6: 12-17
What is the Illumination?
The Illumination of Conscience will be a profound moment of decision for mankind,
a final warning to all of humanity. Mystics and visionaries have described it as
a “judgment in miniature”, a moment where every man, woman, and child will see their
soul as God sees it. This Illumination, often referred to as “The Warning”, will
be a last chance for the world to change its course and return back to its creator.
The English Jesuit and 16th century
martyr, St. Edmund Campion, spoke of “a great day that would reveal all men’s consciences,”
a coming “day of enlightenment”. He exclaimed it be a day in which God will supernaturally
illuminate the conscience of every man, woman, and child on earth. Each person would
momentarily see the state of their soul through God’s eyes and realize the truth
of His existence.
Scripture refers to it in the opening of the 6th seal where an event occurs that
is so grand that every person on earth attempts to hide from the phenomenon they
are witnessing, but to no avail. Every man, woman and child would recognize Jesus
as the true Son of God, and almost all will repent… at least for a little while
As Seen by Modern Visionaries
One of the most famous saints that had
received messages in regards to the coming warning for the world was Saint Faustina.
In the 1920s, Jesus said the following to her:
Maria Esperanza had
also referred to the warning numerous times: —Ibid, P. 37
But, possibly the most famous words of warning about the coming Illumination was
given to 4 little children in the rugged little village of Garabandal.
The Messages of Garabandal
in the Cantabrian Mountains of northwest Spain lies San Sebastian de Garabandal,
a tiny village of about 300 people. For centuries the people of this humble and
remote village have gathered together daily for the recitation of the rosary and
litanies of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It was here that on the evening of June 18,
1961, the Archangel Michael appeared to four young girls: Conchita Gonzalez (age
twelve), Jacinta Gonzalez (age twelve), Mari Cruz Gonzalez (age eleven), none of
whom are closely related, and Mari Loli Mazon (age twelve). He made eight silent
appearances during the following twelve days. Then, on July 1, the angel finally
spoke to announce that on the following day the Blessed Virgin Mary would appear
to them as Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
They described Our Lady as a beautiful young woman about eighteen years of age.
She wore a white dress with a blue mantle and a brown scapular on her right arm.
On her head she wore a crown of twelve stars. Her hair was deep brown and parted
in the center. Her face was oval with a fine nose. The girls said, "No other woman
looks like her or sounds like her." Over the next four years she would appear more
than 2,000 times. By the end of the apparitions, 4 primary prophecies were given
in regards to events that will affect the entire world:
This warning, which will be experienced everywhere and by everyone on earth, is
meant to give mankind the chance to amend their lives, to correct the conscience
of the world, and prepare us for the great Miracle.
The Great Miracle
Our Lady promised that a great miracle showing God's manifestation of His Love will
take place at the grove of nine pines trees overlooking the village. It will occur
on a Thursday evening at 8:30 pm on or between the eighth and the sixteenth of March,
April or May. The miracle will coincide with a rare and important event in the Church
and on the feast day of a young martyr of the Eucharist. The sick present at the
Miracle will be cured, sinners converted, and the incredulous will believe.
The Permanent Sign
After the miracle, a permanent sign will remain forever at the pines. The sign will
be something never before seen upon the earth. It can be photographed and televised,
but not touched and science will never be able to explain it.
If, by this point, mankind does not heed Our Lady’s call to conversion, then God
will have no choice but to send a chastisement.
God's Final Warning
The first event will be a world-wide warning from God. Conchita wrote in a letter
on January 1, 1965: "Our Lady said that a warning would be
given to the entire world before the miracle in order that the world might amend
itself. It will come directly from God and be visible throughout the entire world."
Conchita wrote on June 2, 1965: "The warning, like the chastisement,
is a fearful thing for the good as well as the wicked. It will draw the good closer
to God and warn the wicked that the end of times is coming. These are the last warnings."
Conchita explained that the warning is a purification to prepare us for the miracle.
She believes that after they occur, we will be near the end of times. Each person
on earth will have an interior experience of how he or she stands in the light of
Jacinta had said: "The warning is something that is first
seen in the air, everywhere in the world and immediately is transmitted into the
interior of our souls. It will last for a very little time, but it will seem a very
long time because of its effect within us. It will be for the good of our souls,
in order to see in ourselves our conscience... the good that we have failed to do,
and the bad that we have done. Then we will feel a great love towards our heavenly
Parents and ask forgiveness for all our offenses. The warning is for everybody because
God wants our salvation. The warning is for us to draw closer to Him and to increase
our faith. Therefore, one should prepare for that day, but not await it with fear.
God does not send things for the sake of fear but rather with justice and love.
He does it for the good of all His children so they might enjoy eternal happiness
and not be lost."
October 22, 1965: In reply to a Spanish woman’s question whether the warning might
be a comet that was approaching the earth, Conchita said:
"I don't know what a comet is. If it is something that depends on man's will, I
answer--no. If it is something that God will do, it is quite possible."
When the woman expressed fear and asked Conchita to pray for her, the latter replied:
"Oh, yes, the warning will be very fearful, a thousand times
worse than earthquakes." To an inquiry concerning the nature of the warning,
Conchita answered: "It will be like fire. It will not burn
our flesh, but we will feel it bodily and interiorly." She added,
"We shall comment on this later. All nations and all persons will experience it
in the same way. No one will escape it. Even the non-believers themselves will experience
the fear of God. Even if you hide in your room and close the blinds, you will not
escape it. You will feel and see it just the same." And again, "Yes, it is true.
The Blessed Virgin gave me the name of the phenomenon. It begins with an ‘A’ but
she did not tell me to reveal it to anyone."
As the lady again expressed her fear, Conchita added: "Oh,
but after the warning, you will love the good Lord very much." Conchita added an
interesting observation: "Although it is taking time to come, it will not be late.
God's time is always the appropriate time."
When Will the Warning Occur?
Now if you are reading this before the warning has occurred, then you may be asking
the same question many of us are asking… when? Fortunately Conchita herself had
given us some information as to when to expect the warning to occur during an interview
she had with Albrecht Weber, the German author of ‘Garabandal—Der Zeigefinger Gottes’
(Garabandal—The Finger of God):
Conchita: "When communism comes again everything will
Author: "What do you mean by comes again?"
Conchita: "Yes, when it newly comes again," she replied.
Author: "Does that mean that communism will go away
Conchita: "I don't know," she said in reply, "the
Blessed Virgin simply said 'when communism comes again'."
Keep in mind that this conversation was in 1965, in the middle of the Cold War.
Communism threatened the entire world, and shown no sign of ever being stopped.
At the time no one could believe that 20 years later Communism would lose its stranglehold
on the USSR. Unfortunately, this ‘defeat’ of Communism would only be short lived.
In the years following the bloodless coup that signaled the end of the Iron Curtain,
the world gradually fell asleep in a false sense of security. The west had become
drunk on consumerism and decadence. Time and propaganda began to erase people’s
memories as to why they were free, and how easy it is to lose that freedom. People
became complacent in their duties of protecting their own freedoms, and never realizing
that Communism had not vanished but had instead took on a new and more cunning form,
Socialism: The Trojan Horse
Socialism has become a rampant plague upon our generation, and most do not even
recognize it. Socialism creeps into a nation slowly over time as if a wolf in sheep’s
clothing. It corrupts and divides, pitting people and classes against each other:
black against white, rich against poor, Mexicans against Americans. It does this
by using the very life-blood of a free nation against itself, the redistribution
of its wealth and resources.
Socialism seeks to create a Super Welfare-State (aka: a Nanny-State) where the state
takes over all responsibilities that belong to the individual while implementing
eugenics and population control. It does this with precise deception, offering money,
healthcare, and resources taken from tax payers to those who the ruling party wishes
to target. But, this is not done for the sake of love or charity, but is instead
used as a means of control where the citizen eventually becomes completely dependent
on the state to survive. Dependent citizens will rarely bite the hand, or party,
that feeds them. And as socialism progresses, it eventually gives rise to an even
greater tyrant, Fascism.
Fascism seeks to organize a nation according to corporatist perspectives, values,
and systems, including the political system and the economy itself. Through the
use of lobbyists, corporations will often buy off politicians by paying for part
of their election campaigns. In return, they often will get new laws passed that
will unfairly benefit them. This can be seen more recently by the passing of Obama-care
Health Reform, which was written
by the health insurance
industry themselves, and the passing of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, S510.This
bill, though titled to sound like ‘Food Safety’, has nothing to do with safety but
instead is written to ensure that the big food and seed industries have absolutely
no opposition. It outlaws home gardens, canning and preserving your own food, and
sharing with neighbors, thus ensuring that the population will never be self-dependent,
but will always be dependent on the government and big business for everything.
As in other communist nations, all family farms will eventually be taken over by
companies such as Monsanto and Perdue, who will be unaffected since the laws will
only be ‘selectively’ enforced to ensure the elimination of competition.
For communism to take hold, efforts will also be made to centralize power to a select
few. For example, in the U.S. dictatorship is becoming more apparent as we begin
to see the rise of Czars. These unelected officials are part of the executive branch
and can bypass Congress itself, acting as if dictators for the “Commander in Chief”.
They can claim executive power if they are asked to testify before congress, and
do not have to answer questions to either Congress or the American people. As of
January, 2011, the Czar count in the U.S. varied from 32 to 45 (with 7 more planned),
such as the Department of Homeland Security, the Border and Terror Czars, and the
FDA and Drug Czars. Together this Army of Czars oversees billions of US tax dollars
and answer to no one. The President no longer has to go before Congress to get approval
to spend anymore, he just appoints another Czar to bypass Congress and they do as
they are instructed. This is how regulation, power and control come together and
are necessary steps when changing a nation from Capitalist to Communist. Is
there any doubt that the totalitarian communist agenda has indeed returned and is
being enforced upon all the nations of the free world? (See also
Why is God sending a Final Warning?
Saint Paul, when asked about the last days, spoke of our current generation: “Know
also this, that, in the last days, shall come dangerous times. Men shall be lovers
of themselves, covetous, haughty, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful,
wicked, without affection, without peace, slanderers, incontinent, unmerciful, without
kindness, traitors, stubborn, puffed up, and lovers of pleasures more than of God:
having an appearance indeed of godliness, but denying the power thereof. Now these
avoid. For of these sort are they who creep into houses, and lead captive silly
women laden with sins, who are led away with divers desires: ever learning, and
never attaining to the knowledge of the truth.” (II Timothy 3: 1-7)
Furthermore, as Pope Paul observed, men seem to have lost the sense of sin. Mankind
has fallen so far from its creator that nothing short of Divine intervention can
open men’s eyes and reform their hearts. The Illumination will be this needed intervention,
a correction of the collective conscience of mankind that will be understood by
everyone as coming from God.
