A Book on Apparitions of the Virgin Mary

CHAPTER 8

Marian Apparitions and The End of These Times

[ Not of the World! ]


Scriptures May Have Foretold Them



Do the Apparitions of the Virgin Mary (1) have any bearing on the Second Coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ? Is there any Biblical and historical support to expect all those apparitions?

The best way to seek for the answers to these questions is to prayerfully consult the Holy Scriptures as the author of this work has done.

The book of Revelations gives us confirmation to the mission that Mary, Queen of Angels, must fulfill before the Second Coming of Our Lord. In Chapter 22: 6-10 we can read:

"And he said to me: These words are most faithful and true. And the Lord God of the spirits of the prophets sent his angel to shew his servants the things which must be done shortly."

"And I, John who have heard and seen these things...... And he saith to me: Seal not the words of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand". (2)

In addition, Malachi [3:1-2] also prophesies:

"Behold I send my angel, and he shall prepare the way before my face. And presently the Lord, whom you seek, and the angel of the testament, whom you desire, shall come to his temple. Behold he cometh, saith the Lord of hosts. And who shall be able to think of the day of his coming? and who shall stand to see him? for he is like a refining fire, and like the fuller's herb:"

Obviously Malachi is referring to the Second Coming of Jesus and not the First.

 Keeping in mind that "angel" means "messenger", it is also befitting that the Virgin Mary, who is also considered Queen of Angels by the Roman Catholic Church, be the appropriate messenger spoken about the above readings.

The concrete Biblical evidence announcing Marian Apparitions toward the End of These Times should be clear to those who have Eyes to see and Ears to hear. But not only that....

We are encouraged through Rev. 22:10 to "proclaim the information / instructions being given to us" and not to seal them [hide them].

Our Lady has said in the apparitions of the second half of the 20th century that those will be Her last messages and apparitions on earth. This concurs with many other known Marian manifestations on earth (3).

It should then follow that the stage for the Marian Apparitions in the 19th and 20th Centuries was set over 2,000 years ago and that we are at the gates of the End of These Times.

(1) If the reader does not believe in the Apparitions of the Virgin Mary, for the sake of establishing internal coherence, assume them to be a reality while reviewing this document.
(2) "...time is at hand." is not when St. John lived. It is the point in time he was witnessing, by a Special Grace and reporting on. This time frame is made clear in verse 6 of Chapter 22 of the Book of Revelations.
