Days of Awakening

By John Martinez

But I will leave as a remnant in your midst a people humble and lowly, who shall take refuge in the name of the LORD: the remnant of Israel. They shall do no wrong and speak no lies; Nor shall there be found in their mouths a deceitful tongue; They shall pasture and lie down with none to disturb them.

Zephaniah 3:12-13


It has been several months since I wrote our 14th Contemplation on the great mercy of God the Father. Please know that I am not allowed to write on my own, but only as directed by heaven. As I have indicated to those of you that have emailed or called about our messages, teachings and contemplations, events are unfolding and God’s mighty plan for these times is upon us.


Private Revelation from God the Father

Adoration Chapel – St. Mary’s Catholic Church

God the Father:

GodthefatherYour mission shall progress very rapidly as the world continues to blaspheme My Name and has turns to the evil darkness of Satan — millions consecrating themselves to Lucifer. I can no longer allow this to continue.

In the following months, you will see a rapid unfolding of my Love and Divine Justice take place. My plan is emerging and the year of Mercy is coming to an end. Please know that Satan cannot do anything without my permission. I have allowed him to unleash his demons and the gates of hell are now opened. Evil is targeting my Church and my children who are true believers.

Do not despair! I am in complete control of all things. Many of my children are suffering, becoming disappointed in Me. I can hear their cries and their tears. They have suffered much but I am their Protector. I am assigning my holy angels to come to their side to give them comfort as humanity enters into the greatest penance that mankind has ever suffered. No one will escape the suffering and distress.

You will come under tremendous spiritual and natural attack, even – at times – from your fellow brethren and those aligned with Satan in my church. Yet, those that attack my children are attacking me. As my son and servant, I have guided you all these years for these times. You have been faithful to Me and the mission that I have given you. I will make known to you what my children need to hear.

I have anointed thousands of my children throughout the world with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and I know their hearts are burning with desire to serve and love Me. They must now come before me in repentance, sincerity and prayer. I will shower them with My Love. I will teach them through you and many of my anointed ones to prepare for My Holy Justice. Just as my Son suffered on the Cross for the sin of man, so shall all my people suffer for the sin of the world. No one will escape My Holy Justice.

The Blessed Virgin Mary has spoken in admonition, urging all to turn away from sin and return to Me as she has been commissioned to be the intercessor for mankind. Yet my children refuse to adhere to her holy messages and have chosen their eternal destiny. Her name and images are being desecrated by the evil in the hearts of mankind; so shall they receive equal justice for their sin. She has spoken the same messages for hundreds of years, and yet they continue to refuse to repent and return to Me. Now, the fulfillment of the words spoken by the Blessed Virgin Mary are coming to pass.

Many of my clergy have turned their back on her warnings, ensnared in their own corruption of evil and arrogance. Support and pray for my vicar on earth, Pope Francis; he is being encircled by evil men and women. These evil persons are the cause of the great divisions that are taking place in My church. They are watering down my laws and changing them to destroy the faith of my people. My churches will be plundered, my altars will be defiled, the Body of my Son will be desecrated. Many of my holy priests will suffer martyrdom. The prophecy of Akita, Japan, and other true apparitions are being treated as a joke to justify man’s selfish agendas.

My Son continues to suffer on the Cross for all the sin of humanity---the many atrocities and the darkness of evil that is all around. My remnant church is coming together and will experience the Light of My Presence during these times. Satan offers you the fleeting pleasures of the flesh and damnation… I offer you a glorious eternal life with Me in heaven.

My devoted believers, the laity will be given instructions by my holy angels as to what has to be done. I have many holy priests, bishops and religious that will be part of My Remnant Church. The Church will become as in the early days of the New Covenant Church. I am calling My people to come together in their homes and prepare for these days of darkness. I am asking them to form Christian communities that will come together in prayer, discernment and receive all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The church has not changed since its early beginning… man has changed to fit their own lust for power and authority.

I ask of these communities to start preparing in prayer and in faith so that the Holy Spirit can guide and direct them. I have set up large places of Refuge throughout the world and have prepared many of my servants as leaders to reach out to all of my children. You will also make refuges of your homes or specific locations or areas as the Holy Spirit guides you to do so. Do not be concerned about moving out into the hills or other areas that you might think you must occupy. Be more concerned with your relationship with Me, simply sharing your faith with you family and friends. Make preparations of food and water for yourself and for others that will come in need. Make your home a Refuge.

When the time is appropriate, I will send my angels to bring all of you into my Holy Refuges. My angels will physically guide or carry you into those places that I have prepared for you. If you look for them, you will not find them for they are invisible to you now.

You will know your true brethren by a sign on their forehead. Some will have a cross on their forehead, and others will have the Holy Eucharist. You will be invisible to the evil men and women.

Tell my children that I have not neglected them nor have I forgotten them. I understand that many have questions and may believe that I have turned my face from them. They will be made stronger by the hardships that they will endure in the coming times — their time during these dark days will be as having been purified in purgatory.

Do not despair! Do not allow fear nor doubt to assail you, but place your complete faith and trust in Me. I am your Father and your God.



A Remnant Church

In 2009, Pope Benedict XVI wrote:

Popebenedict16"The church will become small and will have to start afresh more or less from the beginning”.

“I have been shown that the church will no longer be able to inhabit many of the structures she built in prosperity. As the number of her adherents diminishes...she will lose many of her social privileges...As a small society, [the Church] will make much bigger demands on the initiative of her individual members…

It will be hard-going for the Church, for the process of crystallization and clarification will cost her much valuable energy. It will make her poor and cause her to become the Church of the meek...The process will be long and wearisome as was the road from the false progressivism on the eve of the French Revolution — when a bishop might be thought smart if he made fun of dogmas and even insinuated that the existence of God was by no means certain...But when the trial of this sifting is past, a great power will flow from a more spiritualized and simplified Church. Men in a totally planned world will find themselves unspeakably lonely. If they have completely lost sight of God, they will feel the whole horror of their poverty. Then they will discover the little flock of believers as something wholly new. They will discover it as a hope that is meant for them, an answer for which they have always been searching in secret.

And so it seems certain to me that the Church is facing very hard times. The real crisis has scarcely begun. We will have to count on terrific upheavals. But I am equally certain about what will remain at the end: not the Church of the political cult, which is dead already, but the Church of faith. She may well no longer be the dominant social power to the extent that she was until recently; but she will enjoy a fresh blossoming and be seen as man’s home, where he will find life and hope beyond death."

— Pope Benedict XVI (Faith and the Future, 2009)

Let us be that little flock of believers (the Remnant), that sign of HOPE. We MUST unite and stand strong!

My friends, we are living in grave and treacherous times; the buck stops with us. The fight between God and evil is here, and this conflict has taken control of almost every power and domain on this world. The “New Order” is in control of all governments and high influential people in the business world community. No country is protected from the evil that is taking place. Satan and his demons have infiltrated all areas of government, politics, big business and yes, even the Church. As Pope Paul VI stated, “the “smoke of Satan” has entered the Church. (The quote apparently was said on June 29, 1972 by Pope Paul VI on the ninth anniversary of his coronation during a homily given at a mass for the solemnity of Saint Peter and Saint Paul).

We need not look very far to see the signs of the times Jesus had warned us about coming to pass.  Most of our “inalienable” rights have been taken and trampled underfoot. The darkness of evil, with all its entities—greed, hatred, immorality, deception, dishonesty, decadence—have taken control of the minds of men and women throughout the world as we experience daily events of violence, corruption, perversion and brutality.

Our Blessed Mother for centuries has indeed warned us, and mankind has refused to listen. Many saints of the church have prophesied these times; even modern-day seers and prophets repeat the same message in different ways today.

The United States of America, founded with great sacrifice and hope on the principles of God, will suffer much (if not possibly the most) destruction of all the countries. Within a few decades we have turned our once (not perfect but) honorable, faithful and God-fearing Christian country into a Sodom and Gomorrah.

The removal of God from our schools was the beginning of our downfall. At the same time sexual immorality and promiscuity paved the way for an even greater evil: abortion.

And shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and their daughters, Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; And the land was polluted with the blood.

—Psalm 106:38

Abortion was the start of our collapse, and God has heard the cries of the bloodshed of innocents Oh how God hears the cries of the bloodshed of the innocent– all in the name of greed and selfishness. Sin creates more sin. Like maggots multiplying on the carcass of a dead animal, out of one sin develops a multitude of others.

Christina Gallagher of Ireland claimed to have been told by our Lord:

Christina GallagherMy daughter, I desire that you make known to My people in the Americas that I, Jesus, desire they participate in bringing about a number of underground shelters for the safety of those who are to be the remnant of salvation. Soon, very soon, the world will be plunged into the black apostasy that will engulf the world. There will be war and through the availability and use of nuclear power, the annihilation of many parts of the world and its inhabitants will be brought about. God does not desire you to fear. He desires your response and your swift action to bring about this work.

My daughter, I desire you make this known throughout the world. The world's powers are in the grasp of a great unrest and the preparation of war is now a reality in union with Antichrist. He is about to create a great abomination. The world as you know it will become changed and disfigured. World powers are at work, drawing upon the forces of evil to cause destruction. All transactions through banks and all government services throughout the world will be made powerless. The leaders of all nations will be rendered helpless to intervene. Food will be limited. Hunger and death will be everywhere. Great calamities and disasters will befall the world. The waters will be poisoned.

Make preparation now. The world is about to fall into the depths of its own sin. All that you have will be seized. Your money will be worthless. There will be death all around you. God's mercy will be there if people turn to Me but it grieves Me that their hearts will not choose to partake in My Mercy. Rather they will prefer to squirm in conforming to man's way. I am He who is Alpha and Omega for ever and ever. How I still yearn for people to respond to Me rather than die. My Sacred Heart will draw all those who desire to respond for the purpose of ensuring the continuance of the work of salvation. The time is here when all men will be tempted to think only of self. The sea will cover much land and many people will be lost because they choose to remain blind to the call of My Mother and their denial of Truth. My daughter, you will receive much mockery from those who do not want to respond. Soon they will cry out and seek you out to help them but it will be too late for many. The waters of death have moved and moved quickly. Time has been set for the world's destruction. Its perversion is limitless. My daughter, be at peace. Make known all I tell you. Those who can recognize Truth will respond. I desire you to guide My people through My working in you. You are in the time of the 'opening of the door and the closing of the gate' - the great tribulation.

Jesus' Message to Christina Gallagher: July, 2011



The Lord and His Angels will be our protectors

I have been given a similar message but it’s also a bit different. I have been shown the destruction of this country from within as well as by foreign governments and enemies as part of the fulfillment of the plan of Satan’s One World Government.  I saw in my spirit tremendous earthquakes that will change the geography of this nation, unusual weather in all parts of this land, and sadly, I was shown a civil war among our own people. Along with the political and natural disorders, I was also shown the pestilence that will come upon this country with evil as its roots. I saw the unification of Canada, the United States and Mexico as one. Europe will also become one as will several other countries. Europe, the Middle East, Asia and South America will have demonic leadership and governments controlled by the One World Order.

Satan’s goal is to destroy and conquer the true church of Jesus Christ. Any who refuse to comply will either flee or suffer martyrdom.  This, too, is a fulfillment of prophecy and warnings regarding the coming times. Only a few Catholics know of Our Lady of Akita, but the message, like that of Fatima, is an explicit warning of worldwide disorder and chastisement. By the way, the messages in Akita are reflective of and consistent with the prophecies and warnings in Scripture.


The Message of Our Lady of Akita
(1973 - 1981)


The first message: received by Sister Agnes Katsuko Sasagawa on June 6, 1973, was a call for prayer and sacrifice for the glory of the Father and salvation of souls.

The second message: August 3, 1973, was for prayer, penance and courageous sacrifices to soften the Father's anger.

The third message: on October 13, 1973, the actual anniversary of the final visions and miracle of Fatima is as follows:

"As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by my Son. Each day, recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests. The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, and bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their Confreres. The Church and altars will be vandalized. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord. "The demon will rage especially against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will no longer be pardon for them."


In Conclusion

Jesus said to his disciples: “There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, and on earth nations will be in dismay, perplexed by the roaring of the sea and the waves. People will die of fright in anticipation of what is coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. But when these signs begin to happen, stand erect and raise your heads because your redemption is at hand. Luke 21:25-28, 34-36.

I end this message and reflection by humbly asking your prayer and discernment of the messages and reflections I have shared. Most of all, I want to thank you for your faithfulness, your prayers and support in spreading the messages of God.

May our Lord and our Blessed Mother light your way on this vital journey.


Recommended Reading

Preparepersecution SmallI highly recommend everyone read the book: Preparing for the Coming Persecution: A Handbook for Faithful Catholics by Rev. Joseph Esper.  My wife ordered this book from Spirit Daily online and I almost fell to my knees reading what Father Joseph Esper had written. It was almost word for word what I had been given, shown and directed by Our Lord since 1979. You can find this amazing book at To all my friends that have emailed, called me and visited me…. almost all your questions are answered by Father Joseph in this wonderful book.

And so, I end this contemplation quoting Spirit Daily’s synopsis of this great book:

“With the loss of faith and sinfulness of many of the members of the church, it is about to undergo a time of trial and testing. We are already experiencing a series of chastisements. Those reading this book will consider the “signs of the times” and should begin preparing spiritually and psychologically for the very real possibility of religious persecution in the near future. “Preparing for the Coming Persecution’ By Rev. Joseph Esper is designed to help Catholics willing to make the effort. The information provided in these pages is not intended to shock or upset you, but to inform and help you prepare for all that is coming and to inspire you to place your trust in Jesus, and seek the maternal protection of the Blessed Mother. We are called to remain faithful to Him and take up our crosses each day, so to be numbered among His chosen ones. As long as we remain faithful to Him we will share in his victory. (We offer this book, which includes alleged private revelations, some controversial, for purposes solely of discernment; exercise prudence.)”.


1 Final Thing
There will be No Rapture.

This is a myth. The notion of the rapture is a misinterpretation of one of Saint Paul’s letter by an ex-Anglican priest, John Nelson Darby. I state this for my protestant brothers as the Lord wants them to be prepared and know the truth.

“For the Lord himself, with a word of command, with the voice of an archangel and with the trumpet of God, will come down from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together* with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Thus we shall always be with the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

Although much more time is needed than we currently have in regards to this, a great online resource by Catholic Answers breaking down the rapture and its many different versions can be found here.
