Four Prophecies from Jesus and Mary Concerning the Coming Punishment of the World by God
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat.
2 Peter 3:10-11
The LORD will cause men to hear his majestic voice and will make them see his arm coming down with raging anger and consuming fire, with cloudburst, thunderstorm and hail.
In the fire of his jealousy the whole world will be consumed, for he will make a sudden end of all who live in the earth.
There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexed at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.
The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.
A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that came out of their mouths.
The last hundred and ten years are remarkable for the number of apparitions of Jesus and Mary. Our Lady of Fatima is perhaps the most well known, but since then, three more visitations of Jesus and Mary stand out in terms of the importance of the message that was proclaimed.
In each case the message to us is that God loves us with infinite love and compassion, and calls all of humanity to a loving friendship with him by repenting of our sins and converting our lives into conformity with His commandments. We are told that we must choose whether we will meet Him through the gates of His Mercy, or the gates of His Justice.
There are no other options: indifference or indecision is, in effect, a choice for God’s Justice!
The following pages contain an outline of the Our Lady of Fatima, the Divine Mercy devotion, Our Lady of Akita, and the continuing apparitions of Mary, the mother of Jesus, at Medjurgorje.
The actual prophetic words concerning the warning are highlighted in yellow.
I have rewritten this site to make it much shorter…only the bare essentials of each apparition are given. At the end of each apparition description a link is given to the most authoritative website I could find on that apparition. These links provide a full and detailed account of each apparition.

1. Our Lady of Fatima
On the 13th May 1917, Our Lady appeared to three shepherd children, Lucy, Francisco and Jacinta at Fatima in Portugal. The Blessed Mother appeared to them a total of six times culminating on October 13, 1917 when a crowd of 70,000 people had gathered because word had spread that she had promised to perform a miracle that all could see and so believe that it was the Mother of God, herself that was really appearing at Fatima.
The crowd consisted of devout believers, the curious, atheists and the press. it was raining and muddy and most of the crowd were soaked. Then the promised miracle began. The clouds parted and the sun burst through and then began to dance and spin and people were able to stare at it without difficulty without having to turn away. Eventually, the sun appeared to plunge towards the earth frightening many. When the sun returned to its normal appearance the ground was dry and so was the previously soaked clothes of all the onlookers. All this was widely reported by the press.
Our Lady gave the children three secrets…
- Our Lady gave the children a vision of hell which deeply shocked them. Lucia remembered it like this…”there were devils and souls submerged in a great sea of fire. ……cries of pain and groans of despair. This horrified them and made them tremble with fear.”
- The second secret was prophetic. Mary told the children that if men did not stop offending God, WW2 would break out. She also announced the expansion of communism and the consequent persecution of the Church and Pope.
- The third secret is the most controversial. The children saw a pastor dressed in white (presumed to be the Pope). They saw him killed along with other clergy and lay people.
The third secret is controversial because many people believe that the Vatican did not fully reveal the true nature of the third secret because it was too alarming and apocalyptic. Pope Benedict himself gave credence to this when he declared that Akita is the same as Fatima. The prophecy of Our Lady at Akita IS terrifying and apocalyptic. The message of Our Blessed Mother at Akita is further down this page.
2. Divine Mercy Devotion
On October 5, 1938 a young nun by the name of Sister Faustina (Helen Kowalska) died in a convent of the Congregtation of Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy in Cracow, Poland. She came from a very poor family that had struggled hard on their little farm during the terrible years of World War 1. She had only three years of very simple education. Hers were the humblest tasks in the convent, usually in the kitchen or the vegetable garden, or as a porter.
Jesus and Mary appeared to St Fausina (canonised by St John Paul II) between 1931 and 1938.
On Feb. 22, 1931, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ appeared to this simple nun, bringing with him a wonderful message of Mercy for all humanity. Sister Faustina tells us in her diary under this date: “In the evening when I was in my cell, I became aware of the Lord Jesus clothed in a white garment. One hand was raised in blessing, the other was touching the garment at the breast. From the opening in the garment at the breast there came forth two large rays, one red, and the other pale. In silence I gazed intently at the Lord; my soul was overwhelmed with fear, but also with great joy. After a while Jesus said to me: ” paint an image according to the pattern you see, with this inscription: ‘Jesus, I trust in you. ‘ ” Some time later, Our Lord again spoke to her: ” The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous; the red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls. These two rays issued forth from the depths of my most tender Mercy at that time when My agonizined heart was opened was opened by a lance on the Cross…. Fortunate is the one who will dwell in their shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him”
Jesus said to Saint Faustina…
“ Write down these words, My daughter. Speak to the world about My Mercy; 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; let them profit from the Blood and water which gushed forth for them…….. before I come as the just one, I first open wide the gates of My Mercy. He who does not pass through the gates of My Mercy must pass through the gates of justice.
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 a 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 Saviour were nailed will come forth great lights which will light up the earth for a period of time. This will take place shortly before the last day.”
On a later occasion Our Lady appeared to St Faustina and said the following words: “I gave the Saviour 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. O how terrible is that day! Determined is the day of justice, the day of divine wrath. The angels tremble before it. Speak to souls about this great mercy while it is still time for mercy. If you keep silent now, you will be answering for a great number of souls on that terrible day.”
One day in that same year, 1935, Sister Faustina wrote for her spiritual director: “The time will come when this work, which God so commends, [will be] as though in complete ruin, and suddenly the action of God will come upon the scene with great power which will bear witness to the truth. It will be as a new splendour for the church, though it has been dormant in it from long ago.”
This indeed came to pass. On the 6th March, 1959, the Holy See, acting on information that was inaccurately presented, prohibited “the spreading of images and writings advocating devotion to the Divine Mercy in the form proposed by Sister Faustina.” As a result, there followed almost twenty years of total silence. Then, on the 15th April, 1978, the Holy See, after a thorough examination of original documents previously unavailable to it, completely reversed its decision and again permitted this devotion. The one man primarily responsible for this reversal of decision was Karol Cardinal Wojtyla, the Archbishop of Sister Faustina’s home diocese of Cracow. On October 16, 1978, he was elevated to the See of Peter as Pope John Paul II. Sr. Faustina was canonised on the 30th April 2000. God is indeed mysterious and wondrous in his ways!

3. Our Lady of Akita
On April 22, 1984, after eight years of investigations, after consultation with the HOLY SEE, the messages of Our Lady of Akita were approved by the Bishop of the diocese. In the Japanese village of Akita, a statue of the Madonna, according to the testimony of more than 500 Christians and non-Christians, including the Buddhist mayor of the town, has shed blood, sweat and tears. A nun, Agnes Katsuko Sasagawahas received the stigmata and has received messages from Our Lady.
The extraordinary events began on June 12, 1973, when Sr. Agnes saw brilliant mysterious rays emanate suddenly from the tabernacle. The same thing happened on each of the two days that followed.
On June 28, 1973, a cross shaped wound appeared on the inside left hand of Sr. Agnes. It bled profusely and caused her much pain. On July 6, Sr. Agnes heard a voice coming from the statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the chapel where she was praying. The statue was carved from a single block of wood from a Katsura tree and is three feet tall. On the same day, a few of the sisters noticed drops of blood flowing from the statue’s right hand. On four occasions, this act of blood flow repeated itself. The wound in the statue’s hand remained until September 29, when it disappeared.
On August 13, Sr. Agnes received a second message. On October 13, (the anniversary of Our Lady’s final appearance at Fatima) she received a final third message.
Two years later on January 4, 1975, the statue began to weep. It continued to weep at intervals for the next 6 years and eight months. It wept on 101 occasions.
Bishop Ito, in 1984, officially recognized the occurrence of the supernatural phenomenon and the Madonna’s messages. Since then there has been a steady influx of pilgrims from throughout the world. Cardinal Ratzinger, (later Pope Benedict) received the Bishop of Nigata, John Shorijo Ito and judged the Virgin’s messages as credible.
Here is part of the third message of Our Lady of Akita to Sr Agnes.
October 13, 1973
“My dear daughter, listen well to what I have to say to you. You will inform your superior.
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 (Noah’s Flood), such as one will have never been 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 priests.
The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church, in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres…….churches and altars sacked; 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 be especially implacable 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 be no longer pardon for them.”
Update 20 June, 2020.
We are already at the stage where priests are fighting priests, bishops against bishops and cardinals against cardinals. The next event in the Akita prophecy is for fire to fall from the sky. Pope Benedict when asked about the controversial third secret of Fatima replied that Akita is Fatima!
An account of how Fire could fall from the sky is given below in “Why I built this website”
Please note the date of the final Akita apparition October 13. Date of final Fatima apparition…October 13.
4. Our Lady of Peace at Medjurgorje
In June 1981, the Blessed Virgin Mary was reported to have appeared to a number of young people in the vicinity of Medjurgorje in Yugoslavia. The extraordinary aspect of these apparitions are that they are continuing to the present day.
Our lady has stated that she has come to call the world to urgent repentance and conversion to God. She gives us grave warnings that God’s chastisement is soon to fall upon the world, but can be mitigated by prayer and penance. She asks each of us to pray the complete 15 decades of the Rosary daily, and to fast on bread and water on Wednesday and Friday.
She has given each of the seers several secrets concerning the future of the world. Each seer will receive ten secrets in all and when this has been accomplished, the apparitions will cease.
Medjurgorje has become a site of pilgrimage to hundreds of thousands of Christians, and numerous miracles of healing and conversion have been widely reported. The complete Medjurgorje story is beyond the scope of this site, but has been well documented in many of the books that have been written on Medjurgorje.
The invitation to prayer and penance is destined to ward off evil and war and above all to save souls.
According to Mirjana, we are close to the events predicted by the Blessed Virgin. Because of this, Mirjana says to mankind: “Convert yourselves as quickly as possible. Open your hearts to God”
Our Lady has said that these visitations to Medjurgorge will be the last set of her apparations on earth because once the ten secrets have been received by each of the visionaries there will be no further need to visit the earth.
Once Our Lady has stopped appearing there will be three warnings given to the world. These warnings will be in the form of events on earth. They will occur within Mirjana’s lifetime, and Mirjana will be a witness to them. Ten days before each of the warnings, she will advise the priest she chose for this task (Father Petar Ljubicic), who will then pray and fast with Mirjana for seven days. Then, three days before each warning is to take place, Fr. Petar will announce to the world what, where, and when the warning will take place. Fr. Petar has no choice, and must reveal each warning. After the first warning, the other two will follow in a rather short period of time. That interval will be a period of great grace and conversion. After the permanent, visible, supernatural, and indestructible sign appears on the mountain where Our Lady first appeared in Medjugorje, there will be little time for conversion. For that reason, the Blessed Virgin invites us to urgent conversion and reconciliation. The permanent sign will lead to many healings and conversions before the secrets become reality. According to Mirjana, the events predicted by the Blessed Virgin are near. By virtue of this experience, Mirjana proclaims to the world: ‘Hurry, be converted; open your hearts to God.’
The ninth and tenth secrets are serious. They concern chastisement for the sins of the world. Punishment is inevitable, for we cannot expect the whole world to be converted. The punishment can be diminished by prayer and penance, but it cannot be eliminated. Mirjana says that one of the evils that threatened the world, the one contained in the seventh secret, has been averted, thanks to prayer and fasting. That is why the Blessed Virgin continues to encourage prayer and fasting: “You have forgotten that with prayer and fasting you can ward off wars, suspend natural laws”
Medjugorje visionaries in ecstasy as they see and hear Our Lady.
Update June 20, 2020
Please note that the Medjurgorje apparations are ongoing (39 years now) but have not yet been fully approved mainly because they are still ongoing. The Vatican has however approved parish and private pilgrimages to Medjurgorje and appointed a bishop as papal envoy for Medjurgorje. There have hundreds of thousands of conversions there and hundreds of miraculous healings not to mention hundreds of vocations to the priesthood.
If you love God and obey His commands you have nothing to fear. If you do not know God, or feel that you are far from Him, turn to Him with all your heart and ask for His Mercy. He will not refuse , but will embrace you in His loving arms. His Mercy is greater than His Justice, but you must act now before it is too late.
Update 22 June, 2020
I have an overwhelming sense that the time left to us is short. Covid 19 is just the beginning. The consequences of the rain of fire as foretold by Our Lady are unimaginably bad if you die in a state of sin. Not only the fire of the fireballs but the flames of hell for all eternity.
On the 29 th Jan 2017, I had a dream of hell. This was no ordinary dream but felt very real and terrifying. When I woke up I wrote this down…..
I had a glimpse of hell.
It was dark and terrible…the soul who fell there was so afraid ….a fear with no hope of relief. Despair flooded her soul for she knew that her condition would not change….ever.
The terrible aloneness ….her soul was aware of others but there was no fraternity of the suffering. No one to give a kind encouraging word…nothing.
And the terror of the demons and the unimaginable horror of satan whose presence was continually felt. No comfort whatsoever….eternity. Misery and overwhelming anguish.
I had a distinct impression that the soul I was observing was female, but it applies to all…male and female. This is the fate that awaits those who have turned against God or who are merely indifferent to him. Repent of your sins and go to confession and turn to God with all your heart.
Why I Built This Site
What is the significance of July 17? I built this site because of a prophetic word I received while praying on a three day retreat in October 1994. Part of the prophetic word I received has now come about, and I am now in a position to be able to promote the message. Also in this updated account, I have included some very significant material that was not included originally. The word I received is in italics below:
My Son, I have called you to be a watchman to the house of Israel. These words tell of the coming wrath and holocaust. The nations have turned against me and follow their own idols, and so they will bring down on themselves my wrath. I call you to be a watchman and warn of the things to come; judgement and fire. My Son, I call you to be a watchman. I call you to be a faithful servant even if all around you are faithless. Do not shrink from the task I call you to. The world will be judged and found wanting and will be punished. You must warn men of the coming judgement or you will be accountable for those who may have heard and responded to the warning. I will bless you financially so that you may accomplish this task. Be warned however; do not store up for yourself wealth and possessions for all will be consumed. Give of yourself unstintingly and rely on me alone. Pray for a spirit of detachment from the finances that I will give you. Your task is to be a watchman to the house of Israel. Your temporal activities will serve only to promote My kingdom- to enable you to complete the task I have given you. My mother will help you. Pray to her for your needs and she will intercede to Me on your behalf. I am unable to refuse My mother and I have given her to you as a great and precious gift. Devote yourself to her more fully, for she will help you carry out My wishes. I love you. All is well. Trust in Me and pray always. All is well.
I had this word discerned by a priest who is now a bishop and he told me that there was nothing contrary to the Catholic faith in it. A few months before the retreat, Comet Shoemaker-Levy collided with Jupiter over the period July 16-22, 1994.
As a geology graduate, I found this very interesting, especially as it represented the first time in human history that we were able to observe, in real time, a major meteorite collision with another planet. The impacts were devastating and would have obliterated the Earth if it had hit us. On the retreat, I couldn’t help wondering if this could represent a warning from God as to what could happen to us if we did not repent from our sinfulness. At that stage, the idea of God sending a major meteorite to punish us was just my idea, after all scripture warns in several places that the world would be destroyed by fire. However several events were to follow in the next fifteen years that confirmed my idea that God would use a meteorite/asteroid to chastise the earth. I took the word that the Lord had given me seriously and after the retreat I produced a pamphlet that contains pretty much all that is contained in this website. I printed over 100,000 of these and with the aid of friends distributed them in churches and other places. Pretty soon, I began to receive letters from all over the world asking for copies and asking me to send rosary beads medals etc. In particular I began to receive hundreds of letters from school kids in Aitape, Papua-New Guinea. Most of these kids were asking for rosary beads, booklets , medals, holy pictures etc.To my great shame I did not treat these requests as seriously as I should have. I thought that these kids were just after trinkets, a kind of religious items cargo cult. I responded to the vast majority of the letters but a few went unanswered. Then a devastating event occurred that shattered me…. A giant tsunami wiped out Aitape and surrounding areas. Over two thousand people were killed with the majority being children. Most of the children who wrote to me were now dead!
Please pray for me that God will not hold me accountable for those kids I could have sent the literature to. In March 2004 I constructed this website. I had discovered in my business how powerful internet advertising was and so I used the same methods I used in my commercial website to promote Gods Warning. Since then, over 500,000 people have visited this site, a mere drop in the bucket, as there are billions who need to hear this message. In July 2009 an Australian astronomer discovered that a second major meteorite or comet had collided with Jupiter. The collision itself was not observed, but the impact scar was, but what floored me was that the impact date was estimated to be July 18 or 19, exactly 15 years after the Shoemaker-Levy collision!
What were the chances of two major meteorite collisions on Jupiter occurring on the same date? I now felt that maybe God was really telling us that a major impact on Earth was possible. On an impulse I looked up Google to find out what date the Aitape tsunami had occurred on. When the search results came up I went white; the tsunami had wiped out Aitape on July 17, 1998! Three major events all on or about July 17! I hasten to add that I don’t believe that God will send a chastisement on July 17 of any particular year. This would be unscriptural as Jesus said In Mark Ch 13 that “You will know not the hour or the day”.
Note that Jesus said that we would not know the day or hour but we would know the season.
Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 29Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that it is near, right at the door. So what is the significance of July 17? I believe that it was God showing me that these events were no accident and that I had heard him. We don’t know the day but we do know the season we are in. Note that Jesus spoke to St Faustina about the “end times”. I can assure you that is not an expression used very often by Catholics, especially a Polish nun in the 1930’s. A prominent evangelist once said.. “If God does not act soon, He owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology” This was a flippant remark, but there is no doubting that sin has reached monumental levels in the world. Pornography, child abuse, prostitution, blasphemy and abortion to name just a few, have now reached levels that would have been unthinkable in the past. Note that in Ch 13 of Mark, Jesus says that the Gospel will be preached to all the earth, then the end will come. The invention of the internet has allowed that to happen. The Gospel can be preached to all the earth via the internet, and the message of God’s warning can be seen by every person on earth by the same way.
Update June 20, 2020
At the time of writing this update we have had pagan idols in St Peter’s in Rome (October 2019) and now we have the pandemic. My own belief is that the two are related.
So what now? If we are to visualize the two Jupiter impacts as a naval warfare analogy i.e God firing two warning shots across our bow, then the third shot usually follows shortly after but this time it hits its target. In prayer before the Blessed Sacrament recently I asked the Lord when all this would happen. I felt Him say:
“Tell them that I am coming soon”
Update June 20, 2020
The key scripture is Luke Ch 21;25-26 There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.
I personally feel that the Lord will chastise the world with a major meteorite/comet collision. A major collision would produce massive, massive tidal waves if it landed in the ocean (the roaring and tossing of the waves). A meteorite impact of this size would be detected by astronomers some time before, perhaps several months, and hence people would have time to be “terrified by what is about to come on them”. Also, a major meteorite would result in huge amounts of molten rock called ejecta to be launched back into space only to rain down over the whole earth as fireballs, not just at the site of impact. This also fits in well with Our Lady’s message at Akita. (fire will rain down from the sky).
We don’t know when this will happen only that it will. Our Lady’s previous messages have told us that the chastisement cannot be averted but can be lessened by prayer. We don’t know the day or hour but we can know the season. There has never been greater evil in the world or the Church…it’s pretty safe to say we are in the first part of Our Lady’s message of Akita (priests fighting with priests, cardinals against cardinals). We can only now wait for the second part….fire to fall from the sky.
Repent, pray and fast…for yourselves and for your loved ones.
