The Second Coming of Our Lord
Setting the Record Straight Once and
The Second Coming of Jesus Christ
according to various alleged Heavenly messengers (1a) (1b)
saturated the Catholic Cyberspace for some time towards the end
of last century and the beginning of this century. Early in the year
2000 we thought it appropriate to share with our readers a different
perspective (2). After all, the Holy Scriptures cannot
be replaced by alleged locutions and/or messages. Besides, Heaven has
already clearly pronounced itself about such event over sixty
INTRODUCTION and BACKGROUND
At a time when some rejoiced, while others recoiled, with the news of
the formal Blessing of the statue of the already canonized founder of
The Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei in St. Peter's Basilica (3),
rumors, alleged visions, alleged locutions and denials from The Vatican
continue to pollute cyberspace and confuse the Faithful - just as St.
John prophesied in Revelations 12:15.
In The Gospel according to Mark we read in Chapter 13
our Lord's Words regarding the Signs of the End. In verse 10 we
But the Gospel must first be
preached to all nations.
The words used by Matthew
in Chapter 24 verse 14
describing the same requirement read:
And this Gospel of the Kingdom
will be preached throughout the world as a witness to all nations, and
then the end will come.
The aberrant logic utilized by most Shepherds today to dismiss any
impending apocalyptic event is that:
Even when the Apostles were
still physically alive they were expecting the return of Our Lord Jesus
Christ at any moment; something that did not happen.
Of course, mired in worldly matters, these same alleged Shepherds
fail to realize that by making such a statement they are denying the
same Holy Scriptures which they have been using as their "meal ticket"
most of their lives.
A true Shepherd, the late Mons. Dr. Juan Straubinger, Doctor in
Honoris Causa, University of Muenster, Germany, wrote a footnote about
this particular issue in his magnificent translation of the New
Testament [Nihil Obstat dated May 12, 1969]. The
translation of said Note follows.
The preaching of the Gospel throughout
the world is confirmed by the Apostle of the Gentiles [Col. 1:
6 and 23; Rom. 10:18]
, not as rhetorical hyperbole, since he
knew, better than we do, the Apostolic journeys of the time...
If the first Christians anxiously awaited the Second Coming of
Our Lord, as we can see in the discourses and letters of Sts. Paul,
James and Peter, is because they considered that the Gospel had been
preached "to all nations" in accordance to the prescription given by
Our Lord Jesus Christ. Without a doubt, matters changed after the
dispersion of Israelites from Rome [Acts 28:25-28].
However, today we cannot, as Pirot notes, "...limit ourselves to
the very narrow horizon of the ruin of Jerusalem." but enlarge our
horizons to "...the ruin of the world."
The time related misconception of the early Christians resulted
because they believed that indeed the Gospel had been preached to
"...all nations" (of the, to them, known world) as prescribed, while
taking the destruction of Jerusalem by the Roman Legions as "the end"
after which Our Lord Jesus Christ would return.
The situation is quite different now. The Gospel has been
preached to all nations throughout the world.
Brethren, make no mistake: We are in the final straightway, and
everyone has been amply warned!

(Our Lady Speaking to Sister
"...I gave the Savior to the world; as for you, you have
to speak to the world about His great mercy and prepare the world for
the Second Coming of Him who will come, not as a merciful Saviour, but
as a just Judge. Oh, how terrible is that day! Determined is the day of
Justice, the day of Divine wrath. Speak to souls about this great
mercy while it is still the time for [granting] mercy.
If you keep
silent now, you will be answering for a great number of souls on that
terrible day. Fear nothing. Be faithful to the end...." [Notebook
(Our Lord Speaking to Sister Faustina) "...I am giving
them the last hope of salvation; that is, the Feast of My Mercy.
...tell souls about this great mercy of Mine, because the awful day,
the day of My justice, is near." [Notebook II:965]
(Our Lord Speaking to Sister Faustina) "...let all
mankind recognize My unfathomable mercy. It is a sign for the end
times; after it will come the day of justice. While there is
still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My mercy;..." [Notebook
(Our Lord Speaking to Sister Faustina) "...before I come
as the just Judge, I am coming first as the King of Mercy. Before
the day of justice arrives, there will be given to people a sign in the
heavens of this sort: All light in the heavens will be
extinguished and there will be great darkness over the whole earth.
Then the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky, and from the
openings where the hands and the feet of the Savior were nailed will
come forth great lights..." [Notebook I:83]
Commentary From The
Please note that Our Lord is not
glossing over the Day of Justice: According to Our Lady it will be that
terrible day and according to Our Lord it will be the
He clearly stated that Before the
day of justice arrives, there will be given to people a sign in the
heavens... which is nothing else than a brief warning; a final call
He does not make the Day of Justice,
which will follow the last opportunity to appeal to His Mercy, an
optional event nor an event far removed in the future.
At this point we must make very clear
that this "day of justice" is not the Final Judgment. This "day
of justice" is equivalent to what the world faced when what we know as
Noah's Flood took place.
The Second Coming of Jesus Christ
as Explained by St. Paul
Saint Paul tells us very clearly how
to determine its proximity and identify it through his Second Epistle
to the Thessalonias [2Thes.2:1-12]
 About the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, brothers, and our
being gathered to him:  please do not be too easily thrown
into confusion or alarmed by any manifestation of the Spirit or any
statement or any letter claiming to come from us, suggesting that the
Day of the Lord has already arrived. Never let anyone deceive you in
any way. IT CANNOT HAPPEN UNTIL THE GREAT REVOLT HAS TAKEN
PLACE AND THERE HAS APPEARED THE WICKED ONE, THE LOST ONE,...
[Note: Clearly the Great Revolt (THE Apostasy) manifests itself
first. Afterwards, "The Wicked" one will become known. "The Wicked One"
individual and not a concept or philosophy.]
 ...the Enemy, who raises
himself above every so-called God
or object of worship to enthrone himself in God's sanctuary and flaunts
the claim that he is God."
[Note: "The Enemy" = "The
Wicked One" = "The Antichrist" >> "The False Christ" claims that
he is God. In reality, the Antichrist, in most instances, should be
called the False Christ. i.e., counterfeit money is printed to pass
it as real, not to be noted as false. Thus, it is "counterfeit money"
and not "anti money".]
 Surely you remember my telling
you about this when I was
with you?  And you know, too, what is still holding him back
from appearing before his appointed time.
[Note: When the "Wicked One"
becomes known (and not the concept of wickedness"), the False
Christ in person, what we are told in: (a) In the Book of Revelations
(16:13-16 & 11:19); and, (b) the following verse  then will take
place. Therefore, the Return of Our Lord takes place thereafter. That
is, the "appointed time" for the manifestation of the real False
Christ, is before the Return of Our Lord.]
 The mystery of wickedness is
already at work, but let him
who is restraining it once be removed,  and the wicked One
will openly become known. The Lord will destroy his legacy with the
breath of his
mouth and will annihilate it with his glorious appearance at his
"mystery of wickedness" is at work. However, it does not mean that
the False Christ has been officially identified on a global scale.]
 But the coming of the wicked
One will be marked by Satan
being at work in all kinds of counterfeit miracles and signs and
wonders,  and every wicked deception aimed at those who are
on the way to destruction because they would not accept the LOVE of the
Truth and so be saved.
[Note: Whomever did not accept
the "Love of the Truth" will fall victim of the seduction. This is the
immense value of John Paul II's Encyclical "Veritatis Splendor". God
has given us one more opportunity to assist us discern and keep in the
 And therefore God sends on
them a power that deludes
people so that they believe what is false,  and so that
those who do not believe the truth and take their pleasure in
wickedness may all be condemned.
[Note: This is the "last
filtering device", that is, the ability to discern what is "true" from
what is "false" which God will use to separate the chaff that is mixed
the "wheat". As you may see, it is an automatic selective process which
was clearly announced 2,000 years ago through St. Paul.]
Final Commentary From The M+G+R Foundation
understand the meaning of verses 11 and 12 of the Second Epistle
to the Thessalonias
quoted above, and the position of The M+G+R Foundation
reader must carefully review the teachings found in the First Book of Kings, Chapter 22, verses 15 - 23.

on September 11, 2000. It seems to
have had an effect on the MMP interpretation of the Triumph of the
Immaculate Heart of Mary. Their new version posted in the
[see this letter to Fr. Roux for
details] on September 13, 2000 reads as follows, since the original
post has been removed:
The triumph is not to be
confounded with the transformation of the heavens and the earth, nor
should it be confused with the return of Jesus. Her triumph is the
fulfillment of her mission, the acknowledgment by the Church of all her
titles, her privileges, and her rightful place in the mystery of
Redemption, and finally in the crushing of the ancient serpent's head
with her heel (the army of her little ones prepared by her). At that
moment, Our Lady's mission is successfully completed and her triumph
finally achieved, thus preparing the way for the return of Jesus to
establish his kingdom on earth. May it be soon!
