“Fire Will Fall from the Sky and Wipe Out a Greater Part of Humanity. The Survivors Will Find Themselves so Desolate That They Will Envy the Dead”
Our Lady to Sister Sasagawa at Akita, Japan in October 1973.
From the Bible
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.Isaiah 30:30
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.Zephaniah 1:18
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.Luke 21:25-28
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.Revelation 8:7
A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that came out of their mouths.Revelation 9:18
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 Sasagawa has 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 recognised 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.
“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.”Part of the third message of Our Lady of Akita to Sr Agnes, October 13, 1973
Why I Built This Site
I built this site because of a prophetic word I received while praying on a three day retreat in October 1994. 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. If you do not warn them of the coming judgement, and the judgement comes and takes any of them, you will be accountable and responsible for their blood.
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.
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. Cardinal Benedict when asked about the third secret of Fatima replied that Akita is Fatima!
Akita and Fatima
So what is the connection between Akita and Fatima. Most people are aware of the third secret of Fatima which was belatedly released by the Vatican.
In the words of Sr Lucia’s own words….”At the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!’.“
The section just quoted above precedes “The bishop in white” passage with which most students of Fatima are familiar. The section above is overlooked by most but to me it perfectly explains what Cardinal Ratzinger meant when he said “Akita is Fatima”. Our lady is holding back the threat of the flaming sword of the angel which looked as if it would set the world on fire. The sins of the world are increasing exponentially and Our Lady indicated at Medjurgorje that she was unable to hold back God’s punishment forever.
Please note the date of the final Akita apparition October 13. Date of final Fatima apparition…October 13
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 dozens of letters from school children in Aitape, Papua-New Guinea. Most of these children 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 children I could have sent the literature to.
In March 2004 I created this website.
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. Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that it is near, right at the door.Mark 13:28-29
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.
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.
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.
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.Luke 21:25-26
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”. Why are they terrified? Because they know what is coming and there is nothing that they can do about it. 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 that fire will fall from the sk.
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. We can only now wait for the second part….fire to fall from the sky.
Now that you have received this knowledge, what does God want you to do in the little time left before the chastisement?
Before I tell you what God requires of you, I’d like to tell you my own conversion story. I was raised a Catholic and was even quite devout as a primary student and event thought of being a priest but once puberty arrived, the concept of celibacy had no attraction whatsoever.
Once I got to university I became an atheist mainly because of the “cool” people I was hanging around with and because I felt guilty about my new party lifestyle. I figured if God didn’t exist, I wouldn’t feel guilty anymore. I met my wife at university and she was a catholic but a bad apple soils the bunch and it wasn’t long before she dropped her faith as well. We went on like that for the next twenty years and had five kids.
I don’t want you to think I am some holy guy having private revelations from God. Far from it. Like any man I was tempted by the world, the flesh and the devil, but especially the flesh. I won’t go into any detail, but impurity became a part of my life.
What changed? My sinful ways had brought our marriage to a breaking point with no way out. I was distraught and shattered but then I remembered what a Christian Brother had taught us at high school. He said, “If ever you find yourself in an impossible situation in your life, with no way out…call on Our Lady” And that’s what I did. I, a desperate atheist, called on the Mother of God to save me! And she did!
I begged my wife for forgiveness and to take me back and she did. Within a few months I had a miraculous conversion when Jesus touched me. I actually felt His touch and felt totally surrounded and immersed in Love. I became a believer in about three nanoseconds.
What does God want you to do? He wants you to repent and be holy!
Son of man, say to the Israelites, ‘This is what you are saying: “Our offenses and sins weigh us down, and we are wasting away because of[a] them. How then can we live?”’ Say to them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, people of Israel?Ezekiel 33:10-11
Be Holy for I am Holy1 Peter 1:14-16
Ok, so how do you become holy? Well, there’s an easy way and a hard way. Let’s get the hard way out of the way first. The hard way is to try and do it yourself, please don’t try this way. The easy way is to Consecrate yourself to Jesus through Mary. St Louis de Montfort, whose work is summarised in the book Totus Tuus and also 33 days to Morning Glory said that the quickest, easiest and surest way to heaven is by consecrating yourself to Jesus through Mary. It’s easy because Mary does the work! She said at Medjugorje…. “You don’t have to change to love me, rather, love me and I will change you.“
Both books are excellent and 33 Days to Morning Glory is also available in an ebook which means that you can get it quickly and cheaply. The last time I looked 33 Days to Morning Glory had sold over 2,000,000 copies which is sensational for a Catholic devotional book.
Believe me, it works! Another way of describing it is this way. Imagine that Jesus is at the top of the Empire State Building. There are two ways to get to the top of the building, climb the stairs or catch the lift. Mary is the lift!
We can best understand what God requires of us going to the messages of Our Lady at Medjugorje. The Virgin Mary has been appearing in Medjugorje for many years now. Her many messages to the world at Medjugorje have been broadly broken down to five different categories called The 5 Stones of Medjugorje which are listed below.
- Daily Bible Reading
- The Eucharist
Our Lady constantly calls on us to pray the Rosary. The Rosary was instituted by Our Lady and she appeared to St Dominic (founder of the Dominicans) in the 13th century. She gave fifteen promises to those who pray the Rosary devoutly. If I try to talk myself out of praying the Rosary, I just read the 15 promises. Just one promise makes me keen to get the beads out, let alone the full fifteen.
Sister Lucia dos Santos, one of the children to whom Our Lady appeared at Fatima, once said:
“There is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or above all spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families…that cannot be solved by the Rosary.”
Here they are….
15 Promises of Our Lady to those who say the Rosary devoutly
- Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall receive signal graces.
- I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.
- The Rosary shall be a powerful armour against hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.
- It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
- The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the Rosary shall not perish.
- Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries, shall never be conquered and never overwhelmed by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an unprovided death; if he be just he shall grow in grace and become worthy of eternal life.
- Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church.
- Those who are faithful to recite the Rosary shall have, during their life and at their death, the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death, they shall participate in the merits of the saints in paradise.
- I shall deliver from purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
- The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in heaven.
- You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the Rosary.
- All those who propagate the holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities.
- I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of death.
- All who recite the Rosary are my sons and daughters, brothers and sisters of my only son Jesus Christ.
- Devotion of my Rosary is a great sign of predestination. [That is, devotion to the Rosary is a good indication that the devotee is on the path to Heaven]
Our Lady has asked us to fast on bread and water alone on Wednesdays and Fridays.
DAILY BIBLE READING
The Holy Bible IS the Word of God. Its not just a book that you read like any other, it is a SUPERNATURAL book! If you read it devoutly, words will leap off the page at you as God convicts you through his Holy Spirit.
You should attend Confession at least once a month if you have not committed any mortal sins. If you have, you need to go as soon as possible after committing the sin. If you die in a state of mortal sin you will go to hell.
In the Eucharist, Catholics receive the ACTUAL BODY and BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST.
Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.”John 6:53
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.”
Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.Matthew 26:26-28
There is no greater prayer than the MASS. What could be greater than having Jesus become part of your body and soul? My wife and I go daily if possible.
Those of us who have eyes to see can see the world going downhill rapidly. Russia has invaded Ukraine, and sacrilege, pornography, child trafficking and sexual deviation have increased exponentially.
I believe the time is short…you don’t have years to get holy. That asteroid could be discovered by astronomers at any time and then you will have a very short time to prepare to meet God. Don’t wait.
But, what if I’m wrong? Well, if I’m wrong I’ve lost nothing. I lead a much happier life now.
If you’re wrong, you’ve lost everything.
Update July 28, 2022.
Summary of my retreat at Galong NSW from July 17-22, 2022
I had been on a five day retreat with the Benedictines at Marburg Qld in September 2021. I was greatly blessed by the retreat and jumped at the opportunity to do another one with them so I booked at least 2 months beforehand. I didn’t take much notice of the dates at first, but when it got closer, it dawned on me that the retreat began on July 17… a very significant date for me. I took that to be a good sign.
This retreat represents a pivotal point on a word given to me by the Lord when I was on another retreat in Toowoomba back in 1994. The Lord called me to be a watchman (as was the prophet Ezekiel) and warn of the coming punishment of the world by fire. This is not my idea but is fully expressed in Scripture and by Our Lady in a series of messages to Sister Sasagawa in Akita, Japan.
I was starting to doubt that the Lord had really spoken to me back in 1994 and I was going on the retreat to get clarification about this from the Lord.
I knew something was up when I was unexpectedly given the grace to fast for an extended period of time before the retreat. Those who know me will know that I have trouble fasting for one day let alone 33 days. I didn’t intend to fast for a long period…it just happened. I fasted for 23 days on 250 calories per day and a further 10 days at 0 calories per day. So I averaged 140 calories per day for the whole 33 days. I could do this easily and never felt hungry. God’s grace is amazing! What does 140 calories of food look like? The smallest tin of tuna that you can buy is 149 calories.
Here’s what happened.
July 4, both the Father and the Holy Spirit told me in prayer that on the retreat I would be empowered to complete my mission.
July 13. In prayer the Father told me that He would meet me on the retreat.
July 19. Mary told me in prayer that I would know what the Lord wants me to do by the end of the retreat.
July 20. In prayer the Father told me that by the end of the retreat I would be empowered to complete my mission. The Father told me that my life would be changed forever as I lived for Him alone.
July 21 (second last day of retreat). During mass, I had a VERY strong anointing during the Gospel. I heard (interiorly) Jesus say to me….Peter, I am appointing you to proclaim My Warning to the world.
I remember that He spoke with great authority….majesty and authority.
I thought to myself how dreadful it must be to hear these words from Him….
”Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.”Matthew 25:41
God bless, Peter.
