A Book on Apparitions
of the Virgin Mary
by The M+G+R
Marian Apparitions and The End of
[ Not of the World! ]
Scriptures 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 direct Biblical
and historical support to expect all these 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
A formula is proposed regarding the steps leading to the Second Coming
of Our Lord Jesus Christ which contains two elements that are tied to
each other in a very intimate way:
The manifestation of the spirit of the prophet Elias
The manifestation of the forces of the Anti Christ and False Christ
A. The manifestation of the spirit of
the prophet Elias
all the prophets and the law prophesied until John: and if you will
receive it, he is Elias that is to come". [Matt.
Many thought that John the Baptist was the prophet Elias, the one who
according to the prophecy of Malachias (4:5) was to come back to the
world. He was indeed an instrument for the manifestation of the spirit
of the prophet Elias and Our Lord testified to that fact [see above],
however, he was not the only manifestation of the spirit of Elias which
Malachias spoke about.
I [God the Father] will send you Elias the prophet, before the coming
of the great and dreadful day of the Lord". [Mal. 4: 5]
God the Father was certainly not talking about the birth of Our Lord
when He said: "...the great and
dreadful day of the Lord."
This is a clear reference to the Second Coming since on His First
Coming, it was not a "dreadful day". Yet, Elias, manifested through
John the Baptist, was also to come before the First Coming without
contradicting that it also applied to before the "dreadful day of the
Lord", and he did. The question may still remain about how far "before"
the Parousia was the manifestation of the spirit of Elias to take place.
Jesus does not deny that Elias was to come first for He confirms that
the mission of John the Baptist was that of Elias. He then makes a
point of noting that His messianic mission will be rejected with
violence, and then the spirit of Elias will have to manifest itself
again to "restore all things" as the precursor of His final triumph.
Yet, how soon before the Parousia?
The second and last manifestation of the spirit of Elias is finally
confirmed by St. John in the Book of Revelations under the guise of one
of the: "two witnesses", "two olive trees", "two candlesticks" [Rev.
. This "twosome" is considered by some scholars to be
Enoch and Elias [according to Scriptures (Eccl. 44:16, 48:9-10
they never died]. By others, the "twosome" is
considered to be Moses and Elias.
We also see references about that mighty "twosome" in Zacharias 4:1-14.
Elias is the common figure in either illuminated opinion. Therefore, we
cannot speak of the manifestation of the spirit of Elias without
acknowledging the prophecy of the "two witnesses", and vice-versa.
B. The Open Manifestation of the
forces of the Anti Christ and False Christ
no man deceive you by any means, because the apostasy will come first,
and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, the adversary,
the one who relishes in whatever is of God or holy, until finally
sitting himself in the temple of God, conducting himself as if he were
[2Thes. 2: 3,4]
"And I saw another beast coming up
out of the earth, and he had two horns, like a lamb, and he spoke as a
dragon". and "And it was given him to give life to the image of the
beast, and that the image of the beast should speak; and should cause,
that whosoever will not adore the image of the beast, should be slain".
13: 11; 15]
Apostasy: Separation from the Truth - which is what the Catholic world
has been experimenting over the last few decades.
C. The Parousia
then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven: and then shall
all tribes of the earth mourn: and they shall see the Son of Man coming
in the clouds of heaven with much power and majesty." [Matt.
It must be noted that these "tribes" are all the nations of the earth
as opposed to the "tribes of Israel".
Studying the proposed two step formula a few very salient points emerge.
From those readings, it appears very clearly that Elias is more than
just one single specific human being. Elias was represented by John the
Baptist and Jesus also clearly stated that Elias will be back to
restore all things while God, the Father, through Malachias, had
already informed us of the same.
It is also acknowledged in traditional theological circles that when it
is said: "The Law and the Prophets" it symbolizes "Enoch and Elias" or
"Moses and Elias". That is, "Elias" appears to be the equivalent of
Now, since the spirit of Elias is to manifest itself again toward the
end of these times, and it is solidly established that it already
happened one time through John the Baptist as he was announcing the
first coming of the Lord, we may conclude that this time the second
manifestation of the spirit of Elias may take a different form.
It is proposed that the new manifestation of Elias is announced, by
inference, by the Virgin Mary, specifically, through Her apparitions at
Medjugorje which started on the day the Church celebrates the birth day
of John the Baptist.
Mary is proclaimed by the Roman Catholic Church as the Queen of
Prophets, thus, it is within Her God granted prerogative to announce
the manifestation of any of Her subjects.
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".
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 by
This message is further underscored by Jesus Himself in Matthew 11:10 "For this is he of who it is written:
Behold I send my angel (messenger) before thy face, who shall prepare
thy way before thee."
as He makes references to John the Baptist
in previous verses.
Thus, it is certainly fitting for Jesus to announce the manifestation
of the spirit of Elias for the First Coming and for Mary to announce it
for the Second Coming. In a marvelous and mysterious way The Prophets
and The Angels were bound mystically in the Queen of Prophets and
Angels, The Ever Holy and Virgin Mary.
Furthermore, the book of Revelations gives additional 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:
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 after I had heard and seen, I fell down to adore
before the feet of the angel, who shewed me these things. And he said
to me: See thou do it not: for I am thy fellow servant, and of them
that keep the words of the prophecy of this book. Adore God. And he
saith to me: Seal not [seal = hide, obscure, put away] the words of the
prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand". (4)
Fellow servant? The Virgin Mary, the Queen of Heaven and Earth? Yes,
indeed! She Herself made that pronouncement: "Behold the handmaid of the Lord;..."
and then proceeded in haste to visit and
serve Her cousin Elizabeth as a humble handmaid. To fully comprehend
this concept/parallelism we must call to mind Our Lord's words and
example as He washed the feet of the Apostles.
MARIAN APPARITIONS FOR THE END TIMES FORECASTED?
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. Not only that, we are encouraged through Rev. 22:10 to "proclaim the information / instructions
being given to us"
to hide it [seal it].
We may then agree that Marian Apparitions were announced and well
documented as far back as in the times of Malachias.
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 all other Marian and Christian manifestations on
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.
It appears, then, that the proposed formula is a reality. Therefore, it
can be safely concluded that we should already be seeing the
manifestations of the forces of the Anti Christ and False Christ -
something which we are seeing already - and that, finally, Our Lord
will be coming again soon amidst Power and Glory.
The revelation of the identity of the man through whom the spirit of
Elias is now manifested has been covered elsewhere.
