Hallelujah! Soon Jesus will Rule the world! Through the 'Third Secret of Fatima', our blessed Mother Mary has announced the near future enthronement of her son, Jesus Christ, as King and Ruler of the world! Let the world rejoice! Let our King Jesus Christ Rule the world! Amen!

With Jesus, a descendant of King David, ruling the world, Israel is restored and God's Holy City of David, which is Zion, is born. Many times the Bible describes Zion as God's Holy Mountain. The great 'mountain' that Catholic Clergy are climbing in the, Third Secret of Fatima, is Zion. As with any king, Jesus is not King, and Ruler over the world, until His subjects, Catholic Bishops/Angels are enforcing His Rules. In the 'Third Secret', the 'fiery sword' in the angel's hand is the sword of Christ's mouth, Church anathema. Catholic Bishops have the Christ given power, through the power of the 'Keys to the Kingdom', to put Jesus' Law into enforcement on earth. Catholic Bishops putting Christ's Law into enforcement ("Saviors shall ascend Mount Zion to rule"),through the use of the 'keys to the kingdom', is what takes us into Messianic Reign and Zion. Christ's Laws being put into enforcement on earth, is the Battle of Armageddon. When the Bishops/angels pour out their final bowl of auto-anathemas, upon the world at Armageddon, the seventh trumpet blasts and Jesus is enthroned as King and Ruler of the world. With Jesus, a descendant of King David, Enthroned as King and Ruler of the world, which happens at the Battle of Armageddon, Israel is Restored and God's Holy Mountain Zion is born.

Let us go to Zion! Let Jesus Rule the world!

NAB3 OBA 1:17 Judah Shall Be Restored.

But on Mount Zion there shall be a portion saved; the mountain shall be holy, And the house of Jacob shall take possession of those that dispossessed them. The house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame; The house of Esau shall be stubble, and they shall set them ablaze and devour them; Then none shall survive of the house of Esau, for the LORD has spoken. They shall occupy the Negeb, the mount of Esau, and the foothills of the Philistines; And they shall occupy the lands of Ephraim and the lands of Samaria, and Benjamin shall occupy Gilead. The captives of the host of the children of Israel shall occupy the Canaanite land as far as Zarephath, And the captives of Jerusalem who are in Sepharad shall occupy the cities of the Negeb. And saviors shall ascend Mount Zion to rule the mount of Esau, and the kingship shall be the LORD'S.

NAB2 PSA 47:6

God mounts the throne amid shouts of joy; the LORD, amid trumpet blasts. Sing praise to God, sing praise; sing praise to our king, sing praise. God is king over all the earth; sing hymns of praise. God rules over the nations; God sits upon his holy throne. The princes of the peoples assemble with the people of the God of Abraham. For the rulers of the earth belong to God, who is enthroned on high.

NAB REV 21:9 The New Jerusalem.

One of the seven angels who held the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the woman who is the bride of the Lamb." He carried me away in spirit to the top of a very high mountain and showed me the holy city of Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God. It gleamed with the splendor of God. The city had the radiance of a precious jewel that sparkled like a diamond. Its wall, massive and high, had twelve gates at which twelve angles were stationed. Twelve names were written on the gates, the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. There were three gates facing east, three north, three south, and three west. The wall of the city had twelve courses of stones as its foundation, on which were written the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb...

... I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God almighty and the Lamb. The city had no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gave it light, and its lamp was the Lamb. The nations will walk by its light, and to it the kings of the earth will bring their treasure.

NAB3 ZEC 8:1

This word of the LORD of hosts came: Thus says the LORD of hosts: I am intensely jealous for Zion, stirred to jealous wrath for her. Thus says the LORD: I will return to Zion, and I will dwell within Jerusalem; Jerusalem shall be called the faithful city, and the mountain of the LORD of hosts, the holy mountain...

...Lo, I will rescue my people from the land of the rising sun, and from the land of the setting sun. I will bring them back to dwell within Jerusalem. They shall be my people, and I will be their God, with faithfulness and justice. Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Let your hands be strong, you who in these days hear these words spoken by the prophets on the day when the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid for the building of the temple. For before those days there were no wages for men, or hire for beasts; those who came and went had no security from the enemy, for I set every man against his neighbor. But now I will not deal with the remnant of this people as in former days, says the LORD of hosts, for it is the seedtime of peace: the vine shall yield its fruit, the land shall bear its crops, and the heavens shall give their dew; “all these things I will have the remnant of the people possess.

NAB3 MAT 5:1

When he saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him. He began to teach them, saying: "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.

NAB2 EZE 17:22

Thus says the Lord GOD: I, too, will take from the crest of the cedar, from its topmost branches tear off a tender shoot, And plant it on a high and lofty mountain; on the mountain heights of Israel I will plant it. It shall put forth branches and bear fruit, and become a majestic cedar. Birds of every kind shall dwell beneath it, every winged thing in the shade of its boughs. And all the trees of the field shall know that I, the LORD, Bring low the high tree, lift high the lowly tree, Wither up the green tree, and make the withered tree bloom. As I, the LORD, have spoken, so will I do.

NAB3 JER 31:6 THE ROAD OF RETURN

Yes, a day will come when the watchmen call out on Mount Ephraim: “Come, let us go up to Zion, to the LORD, our God.” For thus says the LORD: Shout with joy for Jacob, exult at the head of the nations; proclaim your praise and say: The LORD has saved his people, the remnant of Israel.
Jesus tells us that His arrival into Zion will happen within three days, after the Battle of Armageddon. Scriptures indicate that the battle of Armageddon, where Satan is deposed as ruler of the world and Jesus takes over as Ruler of the world, takes about an hour. Satan's rule over the world certainly does "fall like lightning" as Jesus has told us. Jesus, the "Light to the Nations", will draw His brother Israel away from Satan and home to God.

In Revelations, Church leaders are described as 'lamp stands'. This is because Christ's Church is the lamp stand upon which our 'Light to the Nations' will shine to the whole world. Our 'Light to the Nations' will draw Israel and the world home to God through His Church. Our 'Light to the Nations', who is Jesus, will mirror His Light, from His Church, the Catholic Church, from atop Mount Zion. In other words, Christ's Apostles are going to walk on water. The way we knew Jesus was God was through the massive amount of miracles He preformed. The way the world will know that Jesus is with His Angel/Bishops of Zion, is through the massive amount of miracles they will perform. Miracles, to the repentant faithful citizens of Zion, will flow like water at the celebration of Christ's enthronement over the earth, upon Armageddon.

NAB3 ACT 5:12 Signs and Wonders of the Apostles.

Many signs and wonders were done among the people at the hands of the apostles. They were all together in Solomon’s portico. None of the others dared to join them, but the people esteemed them. Yet more than ever, believers in the Lord, great numbers of men and women, were added to them. Thus they even carried the sick out into the streets and laid them on cots and mats so that when Peter came by, at least his shadow might fall on one or another of them. A large number of people from the towns in the vicinity of Jerusalem also gathered, bringing the sick and those disturbed by unclean spirits, and they were all cured.

NAB3 LUK 9:1 The Mission of the Twelve.

He summoned the Twelve and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal [the sick]...//.. Then they set out and went from village to village proclaiming the good news and curing diseases everywhere.

NAB ACT 1:6

When they had gathered together they asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” He answered them, “It is not for you to know the times or seasons that the Father has established by his own authority. But you will receive power when the holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

NAB LUK 10:16

The seventy (-two) returned rejoicing, and said, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us because of your name.” Jesus said, “I have observed Satan fall like lightning from the sky. Behold, I have given you the power ‘to tread upon serpents’ and scorpions and upon the full force of the enemy and nothing will harm you.
Under Messianic Reign, Israel is restored. Jesus will Rule the world through His Church, the Catholic Church, from atop Mount Zion. Atheists, pagans and all the world are going to know just who Jesus, our King on Zion, and the new, Ruler of the world, is. Through a massive amount of miracles, at the hands of Catholic Clergy/angels, the path home to God will be well lighted. Zion is born when Jesus comes into His glory as King of the world. Mount Zion, aka The New Jerusalem, will be the Light to the Nations. Christ's Apostles will mirror Jesus glory, from atop mount Zion, under Messianic Reign.

NAB2 TOB 13:9

O Jerusalem, holy city, he scourged you for the works of your hands, but will again pity the children of the righteous. Praise the Lord for his goodness, and bless the King of the ages, so that his tent may be rebuilt in you with joy. May he gladden within you all who were captives; all who were ravaged may he cherish within you for all generations to come. A bright light will shine to all parts of the earth; many nations shall come to you from afar, And the inhabitants of all the limits of the earth, drawn to you by the name of the Lord God, Bearing in their hands their gifts for the King of heaven.

NAB2 MAT 5:13

You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house. Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father. “Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do so will be called least in the kingdom of heaven. But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

NAB2 PSA 43:1

Grant me justice, God; defend me from a faithless people; from the deceitful and unjust rescue me. You, God, are my strength. Why then do you spurn me? Why must I go about mourning, with the enemy oppressing me? Send your light and fidelity, that they may be my guide And bring me to your holy mountain, to the place of your dwelling, That I may come to the altar of God, to God, my joy, my delight. Then I will praise you with the harp, O God, my God. Why are you downcast, my soul? Why do you groan within me? Wait for God, whom I shall praise again, my savior and my God.

NAB2 LUK 8:11

But as for the seed that fell on rich soil, they are the ones who, when they have heard the word, embrace it with a generous and good heart, and bear fruit through perseverance. “No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light. Take care, then, how you hear. To anyone who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he seems to have will be taken away.”

NAB3 JOE 2:1

Blow the trumpet in Zion, sound the alarm on my holy mountain! Let all who dwell in the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming; Yes, it is near, a day of darkness and of gloom, a day of clouds and somberness! Like dawn spreading over the mountains, a people numerous and mighty! Their like has not been from of old, nor will it be after them, even to the years of distant generations. Before them a fire devours, and after them a flame enkindles; Like the garden of Eden is the land before them, and after them a desert waste; from them there is no escape...

...And do you, O children of Zion, exult and rejoice in the LORD, your God! He has given you the teacher of justice: he has made the rain come down for you, the early and the late rain as before. The threshing floors shall be full of grain and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil. And I will repay you for the years which the locust has eaten, The grasshopper, the devourer, and the cutter, my great army which I sent among you. You shall eat and be filled, and shall praise the name of the LORD, your God, Because he has dealt wondrously with you; my people shall nevermore be put to shame. And you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel; I am the LORD, your God, and there is no other; my people shall nevermore be put to shame.

Continued: Joel 3:1

Then afterward I will pour out my spirit upon all mankind. Your sons and daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions; Even upon the servants and the handmaids, in those days, I will pour out my spirit. And I will work wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood, fire, and columns of smoke; The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, At the coming of the Day of the LORD, the great and terrible day. Then everyone shall be rescued who calls on the name of the LORD; For on Mount Zion there shall be a remnant, as the LORD has said, And in Jerusalem survivors whom the LORD shall call.

NAB2 ISA 58:6

This, rather, is the fasting that I wish: releasing those bound unjustly, untying the thongs of the yoke; Setting free the oppressed, breaking every yoke; Sharing your bread with the hungry, sheltering the oppressed and the homeless; Clothing the naked when you see them, and not turning your back on your own. Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your wound shall quickly be healed; Your vindication shall go before you, and the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer, you shall cry for help, and he will say: Here I am! If you remove from your midst oppression, false accusation and malicious speech; If you bestow your bread on the hungry and satisfy the afflicted; Then light shall rise for you in the darkness, and the gloom shall become for you like midday; Then the LORD will guide you always and give you plenty even on the parched land. He will renew your strength, and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring whose water never fails. The ancient ruins shall be rebuilt for your sake, and the foundations from ages past you shall raise up; “Repairer of the breach,” they shall call you, “Restorer of ruined homesteads.” If you hold back your foot on the sabbath from following your own pursuits on my holy day; If you call the sabbath a delight, and the LORD’S holy day honorable; If you honor it by not following your ways, seeking your own interests, or speaking with malice— Then you shall delight in the LORD, and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth; I will nourish you with the heritage of Jacob, your father, for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.

NAB3 MAT 5:1

When he saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him. He began to teach them, saying: "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven. Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

NAB2 JOH 8:12

Jesus spoke to them again, saying, I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.

NAB2 ISA 42:1

Here is my servant whom I uphold, my chosen one with whom I am pleased, Upon whom I have put my spirit; he shall bring forth justice to the nations, Not crying out, not shouting, not making his voice heard in the street. A bruised reed he shall not break, and a smoldering wick he shall not quench, Until he establishes justice on the earth; the coastlands will wait for his teaching. Thus says God, the LORD, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spreads out the earth with its crops, Who gives breath to its people and spirit to those who walk on it: I, the LORD, have called you for the victory of justice, I have grasped you by the hand; I formed you, and set you as a covenant of the people, a light for the nations, To open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from confinement, and from the dungeon, those who live in darkness.

NAB2 ACT 26:17

I shall deliver you from this people and from the Gentiles to whom I send you, to open their eyes that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may obtain forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been consecrated by faith in me.’
Christ's Church, the Catholic Church, will suffer greatly as they stand with Jesus when He takes His Throne as King and Ruler of the world. What an honor! Jesus compares the suffering of His Church, the Catholic Church, at Messianic Enthronement, as similar to His own crucifixion (Mark 10:35). Let the Pope and Bishops be imitators of Apostles James and John and, like they, say to Jesus, "we can" and we will stand with You Jesus, when you come into Your Kingdom (Mark 10:35). The whole world will experience a massive explosion in conversion and repentance through the blood of Jesus, and the blood of Catholic martyrs, upon the enthronement of Jesus as King of the world. Suffering and martyrdom for Jesus, His Church, and the world, to lead a massive number of people into Christ's salvation, is an honor! To live out Eternal Life, as veteran Combat Angel of the Apocalypse, who died on the battlefield of Armageddon, while fighting under the command of our Lord and King Jesus Christ, to rescue Christ's Bride, the Church, from Satan; this is an honor! This is an honor the prophets of old yearned to take part in.

A portion from the "Third Secret of Fatima".

having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions. Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God.

NAB3 MAR 10:35

Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him and said to him, "Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you." He replied, "What do you wish (me) to do for you?" They answered him, "Grant that in your glory we may sit one at your right and the other at your left." Jesus said to them, "You do not know what you are asking. Can you drink the cup that I drink or be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?" They said to him, "We can." Jesus said to them, "The cup that I drink, you will drink, and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized; but to sit at my right or at my left is not mine to give but is for those for whom it has been prepared."

Michael the Archangel will engage Satan in combat on the apocalyptic Battlefield of Armageddon. Michael the Archangel, leading his angels, will light the world on fire with the sword of Christ's mouth, to prepare the way for Messianic Reign. The angel that we see in the Third Secret of Fatima is Michael the Archangel preparing for combat with Satan on the apocalyptic battlefield of Armageddon. Psalm 97 tells us "Fire goes before him; everywhere it consumes the foes", before Jesus comes to Rule the world. In Mathew 13 we have Jesus dispatching His angels to hurl the wicked into hell. Hurling the wicked into hell is regularly described as throwing them into the fire. Church anathema is the fiery sword of Christ's mouth that Archangel Michael wields. Church Anathema, which is Jesus binding the wicked to their sins, is the only 'hurl into hell' weapon there is, on earth or in heaven. Church Anathema is Jesus' weapon in the hands, or shall I say on the tongues, of His Apostles. The city half in ruins, in the Third Secret of Fatima, is describing spiritual death carnage from the sword of Christ's mouth. It is spiritual death that the sword of Christ's mouth delivers.

On the other side of Armageddon, Jesus pulls a massive number of people out of hell, through repentance, through the gates of Zion which the gates of Zion is the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and into Zion to be with Him. To get to this glorious point in time, which is the formation of Zion, we have to first go through the massive spiritual death destruction of the Battle of Armageddon. The wicked, living outside the gates of Zion, in spiritual death, is Christ's prodigal son parable, "great famine", which pulls Jesus' prodigal brothers away from Satan (Satan is man's evil human pride on earth) and home to God in Zion. ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!

“J.M.J. The third part of the secret revealed at the Cova da Iria-Fatima, on 13 July 1917.

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!' .

NAB2 PSA 96:11

Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice; let the sea and what fills it resound; let the plains be joyful and all that is in them. Then let all the trees of the forest rejoice before the LORD who comes, who comes to govern the earth, To govern the world with justice and the peoples with faithfulness.

NAB2 PSA 97

The LORD is king; let the earth rejoice; let the many islands be glad. Cloud and darkness surround the Lord; justice and right are the foundation of his throne. Fire goes before him; everywhere it consumes the foes. Lightning illumines the world; the earth sees and trembles. The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim God’s justice; all peoples see his glory. All who serve idols are put to shame, who glory in worthless things; all gods bow down before you. Zion hears and is glad, and the cities of Judah rejoice because of your judgments, O LORD. You, LORD, are the Most High over all the earth, exalted far above all gods. The LORD loves those who hate evil, protects the lives of the faithful, rescues them from the hand of the wicked. Light dawns for the just; gladness, for the honest of heart. Rejoice in the LORD, you just, and praise his holy name.

NAB MAT 13:38

The weeds are the followers of the evil one and the enemy who sowed them them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the world, while the harvesters are the angels. Just as weeds are collected and burned, so will it be at the end of the world. The Son of Man will dispatch his angels to collect from his kingdom all who draw others to apostasy, and all evildoers. The angels will hurl them into the fiery furnace where they will wail and grind their teeth. Then the saints will shine like the sun in their Father's kingdom.

St. Michael the Archangel

...In art St. Michael is represented as an angelic warrior, fully armed with helmet, sword, and shield (often the shield bears the Latin inscription: Quis ut Deus), standing over the dragon, whom he sometimes pierces with a lance. He also holds a pair of scales in which he weighs the souls of the departed (cf. Rock, "The Church of Our Fathers", III, 160), or the book of life, to show that he takes part in the judgment...

NAB LUK 10:16

The seventy (-two) returned rejoicing, and said, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us because of your name.” Jesus said, “I have observed Satan fall like lightning from the sky. Behold, I have given you the power ‘to tread upon serpents’ and scorpions and upon the full force of the enemy and nothing will harm you.

NAB REV 12:5

She gave birth to a son--a boy destined to shepherd all the nations with an iron rod. Her child was caught up to God and to his throne. The woman herself fled into the desert, where a special place had been prepared for her by God; there she was taken care of for twelve hundred and sixty days...

...Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. Although the dragon and his angels fought back, they were overpowered and lost their place in heaven. The huge dragon, the ancient serpent known as the devil or Satan, the seducer of the whole world, was driven out; he was hurled down to earth and his minions with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have salvation and power come, the reign of our God and the authority of his Anointed One. For the accuser of our brothers is cast out, who night and day accused them before our God. They defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; love for life did not deter them from death. So rejoice, you heavens, and you that dwell therein! But woe to you, earth and sea, for the devil has come down upon you! His fury knows no limits, for he knows his time is short."

NAB REV 19:11 The King of kings.

The heavens were opened, and as I looked on, a white horse appeared; its rider was called "The Faithful and True." Justice is his standard in passing judgment and in waging war. His eyes blazed like fire, and on his head were many diadems. Inscribed on his person was a name known to no one but himself. He wore a cloak that had been dipped in blood, and his name was the Word of God. The armies of heaven were behind him riding white horses and dressed in fine linen, pure and white. Out of his mouth came a sharp sword for striking down the nations. He will shepherd them with an iron rod; it is he who will tread out in the winepress the blazing wrath of God the Almighty. A name was written on the part of the cloak that covered his thigh: "King of kings and Lord of lords."...

NAB REV 20:1

Thousand Year Reign.
Then I saw an angel come down from heaven, holding the key to the abyss and a huge chain in his hand. He seized the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil or Satan, and chained him up for a thousand years. The angel hurled him into the abyss, which he closed and sealed over him. He did this so that the dragon might not lead the nations astray until the thousand years are over. After this, the dragon is to be released for a short time.

NAB ISA 27:1

On that day, The LORD will punish with his sword that is cruel, great, and strong, Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan the coiled serpent; and he will slay the dragon that is in the sea. On that day—The pleasant vineyard, sing about it! I, the LORD, am its keeper, I water it every moment; Lest anyone harm it, night and day I guard it. I am not angry, but if I were to find briers and thorns, In battle I should march against them; I should burn them all. Expunging and expelling, I should strive against them, carrying them off with my cruel wind in time of storm. In days to come Jacob shall take root, Israel shall sprout and blossom, covering all the world with fruit. Is he to be smitten as his smiter was smitten? or slain as his slayer was slain? Or shall he cling to me for refuge? He must make peace with me; peace shall he make with me!

NAB2 PSA 110:1

A psalm of David. The LORD says to you, my lord: “Take your throne at my righthand, while I make your enemies your footstool.” The scepter of your sovereign might the LORD will extend from Zion. The LORD says: “Rule over your enemies! Yours is princely power from the day of your birth. In holy splendor before the daystar, like the dew I begot you.” The LORD has sworn and will not waver: “Like Melchizedek you are a priest forever.” At your right hand is the Lord, who crushes kings on the day of wrath, Who, robed in splendor, judges nations, crushes heads across the wide earth, Who drinks from the brook by the wayside and thus holds high the head.
God tells us that the beast has got to be burned in order for a "prolongation of life" to be given to the earth. In the Third Secret of Fatima, the bishop in white has to pass through a city half in ruins, on his way to the huge cross at the top of the mountain (Zion). In other words, Church leaders have to take us through Armageddon, to get to Messianic Reign and Zion. The death and carnage of the city half in ruins is spiritual death from strikes from the sword of Christ's mouth, which is Armageddon. Christ's Apostles putting Christ's Law into enforcement ("a city half in ruins), is what enthrones Jesus as King and Ruler of the world. "At the very moment Christ's Law is put into enforcement on earth, by Christ's Apostles, Jesus is King of the world, and we, Christ's faithful, are in Zion.

...a Bishop dressed in White ‘we had the impression that it was the Holy Father'. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross...

NAB3 AMO 5:16

Therefore, thus says the LORD, the God of hosts, the Lord: In every square there shall be lamentation, and in every street they shall cry, “Oh, no!” They shall summon the farmers to wail and the professional mourners to lament. And in every vineyard there shall be lamentation when I pass through your midst, says the LORD.

Woe to those who yearn for the day of the LORD! What will the day of the LORD mean for you? It will be darkness, not light! As if someone fled from a lion and a bear met him; Or as if on entering the house he rested his hand against the wall, and a snake bit it. Truly, the day of the LORD will be darkness, not light, gloom without any brightness!

NAB2 DAN 7:11

I watched, then, from the first of the arrogant words which the horn spoke, until the beast was slain and its body thrown into the fire to be burnt up. The other beasts, which also lost their dominion, were granted a prolongation of life for a time and a season. As the visions during the night continued, I saw One like a son of man coming, on the clouds of heaven; When he reached the Ancient One and was presented before him, He received dominion, glory, and kingship; nations and peoples of every language serve him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that shall not be taken away, his kingship shall not be destroyed. I, Daniel, found my spirit anguished within its sheath of flesh, and I was terrified by the visions of my mind.

NAB REV 12:5

She gave birth to a son--a boy destined to shepherd all the nations with an iron rod. Her child was caught up to God and to his throne. The woman herself fled into the desert, where a special place had been prepared for her by God; there she was taken care of for twelve hundred and sixty days...

...Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. Although the dragon and his angels fought back, they were overpowered and lost their place in heaven. The huge dragon, the ancient serpent known as the devil or Satan, the seducer of the whole world, was driven out; he was hurled down to earth and his minions with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have salvation and power come, the reign of our God and the authority of his Anointed One.


JESUS, THE DIVINE MERCY

Many Catholic Saints have indicated the coming of the great chastisement, upon the earth, by God. Only a 'remnant' of Israel enter into the Holy City of Zion of the Restored Kingdom of Israel. This is because of the massive population reduction, of the great chastisement by God, the 'burning of the beast', when Jesus comes into His Power to Rule the world with justice. In the 1930s, Jesus spoke to St. Faustina on the great need for people to repent of their sins before Jesus comes with His Justice. The 'Penance! Penance! Penance!' screamed by the Angel with the fiery sword, in the Third Secret of Fatima (1917), is echoed in Christ's words to St. Faustina (1930s). Now is the time to Repent! Now is the time to Convert! Seek Jesus while you still can, before the great chastisement!

“J.M.J. The third part of the secret revealed at the Cova da Iria-Fatima, on 13 July 1917.

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!' .

JESUS, THE DIVINE MERCY, by St.Faustina

The devotion to Jesus as the Divine Mercy is based on the writings of Saint Faustina, a Polish nun who wrote a diary of about 600 pages recording the revelations she received about God's mercy.

Jesus looked at me and said, Souls perish in spite of My bitter Passion. I am giving them the last hope of salvation; that is, the Feast of My Mercy. If they will not adore My mercy, they will perish for all eternity. Secretary of My mercy, write, tell souls about this great mercy of Mine, because the awful day, the day of My justice, is near. (Diary - Divine Mercy in My Soul, 965)

THE CHAPLET OF THE DIVINE MERCY

Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ for our sins and those of the whole world; for the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us. (Diary, 474-475)... The next morning, when I entered chapel, I heard these words interiorly: Every time you enter the chapel, immediately recite the prayer which I taught you yesterday. When I had said the prayer, in my soul I heard these words: This prayer will serve to appease My wrath. (476)

My sanctity and perfection consist in the close union of my will with the will of God. God never violates our free will. It is up to us whether we want to receive God's grace or not. It is up to us whether we will cooperate with it or waste it. (1107)

... Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet. (699)

The greater the sinner, the greater the right he has to My mercy. My mercy is confirmed in every work of My hands. He who trusts in My mercy will not perish, for all his affairs are Mine, and his enemies will be shattered at the base of My footstool. (723)

I, Sister Faustina, by the order of God, have visited the abysses of hell so that I might tell souls about it and testify to its existence. (741)

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. (848)

I desire trust from My creatures. Encourage souls to place great trust in My fathomless mercy. Let the weak, sinful soul have no fear to approach Me, for even if it had more sins than there are grains of sand in the world, all would be drowned in the unmeasurable depths of My mercy. (1059)

My daughter, do whatever is within your power to spread devotion to My mercy. I will make up for what you lack. Tell aching mankind to snuggle close to My merciful Heart, and I will fill it with peace. Tell [all people], My daughter, that I am Love and Mercy itself. When a soul approaches Me with trust, I fill it with such an abundance of graces that it cannot contain them within itself, but radiates them to other souls. (1074)

Souls who spread the honor of My mercy I shield through their entire lives as a tender mother her infant, and at the hour of death I will not be a Judge for them, but the Merciful Savior. At that last hour, a soul has nothing with which to defend itself except My mercy. Happy is the soul that during its lifetime immersed itself in the Fountain of Mercy, because justice will have no hold on it. (1075)

[Let] the greatest sinners place their trust in My mercy. They have the right before others to trust in the abyss of My mercy. My daughter, write about My mercy towards tormented souls. Souls that make an appeal to My mercy delight Me. To such souls I grant even more graces than they ask. I cannot punish even the greatest sinner if he makes an appeal to My compassion, but on the contrary, I justify him in My unfathomable and inscrutable mercy.

He who refuses to pass through the door of My mercy must pass through the door of My justice... (1146) Today I heard a voice in my soul: Oh, if sinners knew My mercy, they would not perish in such great numbers. Tell sinful souls not to be afraid to approach Me; speak to them of My great mercy.

The Lord said to me, The loss of each soul plunges Me into mortal sadness. You always console Me when you pray for sinners. The prayer most pleasing to Me is prayer for the conversion of sinners. Know, My daughter, that this prayer is always heard and answered. (1396-1397)

... Oh, how miserable are those who do not take advantage of the miracle of God's mercy! You will call out in vain, but it will be too late. (1448)

My daughter, tell souls that I am giving them My mercy as a defense. I Myself am fighting for them and am bearing the just anger of My Father. (1516)

The Lord said to me, My daughter, do not tire of proclaiming My mercy. In this way you will refresh this Heart of Mine, which burns with a flame of pity for sinners. Tell My priests that hardened sinners will repent on hearing their words when they speak about My unfathomable mercy, about the compassion I have for them in My Heart. To priests who proclaim and extol My mercy, I will give wondrous power; I will anoint their words and touch the hearts of those to whom they will speak. (1521)

Write: I am Thrice Holy, and I detest the smallest sin. I cannot love a soul which is stained with sin; but when it repents, there is no limit to My generosity toward it. My mercy embraces and justifies it. With My mercy, I pursue sinners along all their paths, and My Heart rejoices when they return to Me. I forget the bitterness with which they fed My Heart and rejoice at their return. Tell sinners that no one shall escape My Hand; if they run away from My Merciful Heart, they will fall into My Just Hands. (1728)

The Blessed Virgin Mary :

... 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 Savior, but as a just Judge. Oh, 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 the time for [granting] mercy. If you keep silent now, you will be answering for a great number of souls on that terrible day. ... (635)

People of today see punishment from God as a bad thing. When Armageddon strikes, God's children of Israel, and the world, of the 'remnant' who physically survive Armageddon, come running home to God through repentance and absolution. This is a good thing. When the Angel of God yells 'Penance, Penance, Penance!', and the survivors of the world are struck down by God's gun, the fiery sword of anathema; a blow delivered through Christ's Angels of the Apocalypse, they, through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, come running home. This is a grand and glorious event. Much of the world converts to Christianity under Messianic Reign. Armageddon is a grand and glorious event of repentance, conversion and salvation to the world.

NAB2 ISA 16:1

Let the outcasts of Moab live with you, be their shelter from the destroyer. When the struggle is ended, the ruin complete, and they have done with trampling the land, A throne shall be set up in mercy, and on it shall sit in fidelity (in David’s tent) A judge upholding right and prompt to do justice.

NAB2 PRO 23:13

Withhold not chastisement from a boy; if you beat him with the rod, he will not die. Beat him with the rod, and you will save him from the nether world.

NAB LUK 15:17

Coming to his senses he thought, ‘How many of my father’s hired workers have more than enough food to eat, but here am I, dying from hunger. “I shall get up and go to my father and I shall say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I no longer deserve to be called your son; treat me as you would treat one of your hired workers.”' So he got up and went back to his father. While he was still a long way off, his father caught sight of him, and was filled with compassion. He ran to his son, embraced him and kissed him. His son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you; I no longer deserve to be called your son.’ But his father ordered his servants, ‘Quickly bring the finest robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Take the fattened calf and slaughter it. Then let us celebrate with a feast, because this son of mine was dead, and has come to life again; he was lost, and has been found.’ Then the celebration began.

NAB2 HOS 6:1

In their affliction, they shall look for me: “Come, let us return to the LORD, For it is he who has rent, but he will heal us; he has struck us, but he will bind our wounds. He will revive us after two days; on the third day he will raise us up, to live in his presence. Let us know, let us strive to know the LORD; as certain as the dawn is his coming, and his judgment shines forth like the light of day! He will come to us like the rain, like spring rain that waters the earth.” What can I do with you, Ephraim? What can I do with you, Judah? Your piety is like a morning cloud, like the dew that early passes away. For this reason I smote them through the prophets, I slew them by the words of my mouth; For it is love that I desire, not sacrifice, and knowledge of God rather than holocausts.

NAB2 MAL 3:1

Lo, I am sending my messenger to prepare the way before me; And suddenly there will come to the temple the LORD whom you seek, And the messenger of the covenant whom you desire. Yes, he is coming, says the LORD of hosts. But who will endure the day of his coming? And who can stand when he appears? For he is like the refiner’s fire, or like the fuller’s lye. He will sit refining and purifying (silver), and he will purify the sons of Levi, Refining them like gold or like silver that they may offer due sacrifice to the LORD. Then the sacrifice of Judah and Jerusalem will please the LORD, as in days of old, as in years gone by. I will draw near to you for judgment, and I will be swift to bear witness Against the sorcerers, adulterers, and perjurers, those who defraud the hired man of his wages, Against those who defraud widows and orphans; those who turn aside the stranger, and those who do not fear me, says the LORD of hosts. Surely I, the LORD, do not change, nor do you cease to be sons of Jacob. Since the days of your fathers you have turned aside from my statutes, and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you, says the LORD of hosts.

NAB2 HOS 11:10

They shall follow the LORD, who roars like a lion; When he roars, his sons shall come frightened from the west, Out of Egypt they shall come trembling, like sparrows, from the land of Assyria, like doves; And I will resettle them in their homes, says the LORD.

NAB2 HOS 2:1

Then the people of Israel shall turn back and seek the LORD, their God, and David, their king; They shall come trembling to the LORD and to his bounty, in the last days. The number of the Israelites shall be like the sand of the sea, which can be neither measured nor counted. Whereas they were called, “Lo-ammi,” They shall be called, “Children of the living God.” Then the people of Judah and of Israel shall be gathered together; They shall appoint for themselves one head and come up from other lands, for great shall be the day of Jezreel.
Messianic Reign, where Jesus is enthroned as King and Ruler of the world, is a good thing. Messianic Reign is what all the apocalyptic prophets of Old Testament and New Testament, yearned for. All the prophets desired to be a part of this, what they saw as the pinnacle of all time, event. It is Christ's death and resurrection which powers Messianic Reign. It is not getting sinners into heaven, but the formation of Zion, under Christ's Rule, that is the apple of God's eye. Prophets reflect this in the heart of God. It is at the formation of Zion that God receives His Bride who chooses to be faithful and loving to Him, on free willed earth. Where the Israel of Moses day failed, Jesus and His Apostles succeed. God desires His Zion, and so do we God's faithful. Jesus brings God's Bride Zion into existence, through His Apostles, the Catholic Church, in the era of the Apocalypse.

Scriptures do not see God's plan of salvation through Christ as being complete until Messianic Reign begins and Zion is born. Christ's enthronement as King and Ruler of the world is what both New Testament and Old Testament see as the climax of God's plan of Salvation in our Savior and Messiah, Jesus. Scripture puts more of a period of time upon God's plan of Salvation initiated at Christ's birth. Salvation through Jesus is described by Isaiah sprouting and then blossoming. Scripture paints Christ's enthronement on earth as the blossoming of God's plan of Salvation through Jesus, initiated ("sprouted") at Christ's birth.

NAB3 ISA 11:1 The Rule of Immanuel

But a shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse, and from his roots a bud shall blossom. The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him: a spirit of wisdom and of understanding, A spirit of counsel and of strength, a spirit of knowledge and of fear of the Lord, and his delight shall be the fear of the Lord. Not by appearance shall he judge, nor by hearsay shall he decide, But he shall judge the poor with justice, and decide aright for the land’s afflicted. He shall strike the ruthless with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked. Justice shall be the band around his waist, and faithfulness a belt upon his hips.
God does not allow saints, in heaven, to choose, not to love, hate or disobedience, in any way. Therefore saints, in heaven, cannot produce love for God in heaven. One cannot love without the uninhibited ability to choose not to love. Saints, in heaven have love for God from when they were free willed people on earth, but they cannot choose to love God in heaven. In Zion, God's faithful, “climb back up God's Holy Mountain, which Adam and Eve were thrown off (EZE 28:12-17). In Zion, God's faithful are with God, as Adam was with God in the Garden of Eden, and they still possess the free will ability to “love God with all their hearts, all their minds, all there strength, and all their soul. To be with God and still possess the ability to produce free will love for God, is what makes Zion far better than even being in heaven. The selfish, prideful wicked of the world will not see being in Zion as better than being in heaven, but Christ's faithful will.

NAB3 ISA 61:1

The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; He has sent me to bring glad tidings to the lowly, to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives and release to the prisoners, To announce a year of favor from the LORD and a day of vindication by our God, to comfort all who mourn; To place on those who mourn in Zion a diadem instead of ashes, To give them oil of gladness in place of mourning, a glorious mantle instead of a listless spirit. They will be called oaks of justice, planted by the LORD to show his glory. They shall rebuild the ancient ruins, the former wastes they shall raise up And restore the ruined cities, desolate now for generations. Strangers shall stand ready to pasture your flocks, foreigners shall be your farmers and vinedressers. You yourselves shall be named priests of the LORD, ministers of our God you shall be called. You shall eat the wealth of the nations and boast of riches from them. Since their shame was double and disgrace and spittle were their portion, They shall have a double inheritance in their land, everlasting joy shall be theirs. For I, the LORD, love what is right, I hate robbery and injustice; I will give them their recompense faithfully, a lasting covenant I will make with them. Their descendants shall be renowned among the nations, and their offspring among the peoples; All who see them shall acknowledge them as a race the LORD has blessed. I rejoice heartily in the LORD, in my God is the joy of my soul; For he has clothed me with a robe of salvation, and wrapped me in a mantle of justice, Like a bridegroom adorned with a diadem, like a bride bedecked with her jewels. As the earth brings forth its plants, and a garden makes its growth spring up, So will the Lord GOD make justice and praise spring up before all the nations.

NAB REV 21:9 The New Jerusalem.

One of the seven angels who held the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the woman who is the bride of the Lamb." He carried me away in spirit to the top of a very high mountain and showed me the holy city of Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God. It gleamed with the splendor of God. The city had the radiance of a precious jewel that sparkled like a diamond. Its wall, massive and high, had twelve gates at which twelve angles were stationed. Twelve names were written on the gates, the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. There were three gates facing east, three north, three south, and three west. The wall of the city had twelve courses of stones as its foundation, on which were written the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

The one who spoke to me held a rod of gold for measuring the city, its gates, and its wall. The city is perfectly square, its length and its width being the same. He measured the city with the rod and found it twelve thousand furlongs in length, in width, and in height. Its wall measured a hundred and forty-four cubits in height by the unit of measurement the angel used. The wall was constructed of jasper; the city was of pure gold, crystal clear. The foundation of the city wall was ornate with precious stones of every sort: the first course of stones was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh hyacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each made of a single pearl; and the streets of the city were of pure gold, transparent as glass.

I saw no temple in the city, The Lord God the Almighty, is its temple he and the Lamb. The city had no need of sun or moon, for the glory of God gave it light, and its lamp was the Lamb. The nations shall walk by its light; to it the kings of the earth shall bring their treasures. During the day its gates shall never be shut, and there shall be no night. The treasures and wealth of the nations shall be brought there, but nothing profane shall enter it, nor anyone who is a liar or has done a detestable act. Only those shall enter whose names are inscribed in the book of the living kept by the Lamb. (EZE 28:11-15)

NAB ZEC 9:16

And the Lord, their God, shall save them on that day, his people, like a flock. For they are the jewels in a crown raised aloft over his land. For what wealth is theirs, and what beauty!

NAB ISA 62

For Zion's sake I will not be silent, for Jerusalem's sake I will not be quiet, Until her vindication shines forth like the dawn and her victory like a burning torch. Nations shall behold your vindication, and all kings your glory; You shall be called by a new name pronounced by the mouth of the LORD. You shall be a glorious crown in the hand of the LORD, a royal diadem held by your God. No more shall men call you "Forsaken," or your land "Desolate," But you shall be called "My Delight," and your land "Espoused." For the LORD delights in you, and makes your land his spouse. As a young man marries a virgin, your Builder shall marry you; And as a bridegroom rejoices in his bride so shall your God rejoice in you. Upon your walls, O Jerusalem, I have stationed watchmen; Never, by day or by night, shall they be silent. O you who are to remind the LORD, take no rest And give no rest to him, until he re-establishes Jerusalem And makes of it the pride of the earth. The LORD has sworn by his right hand and by his mighty arm: No more will I give your grain as food to your enemies; Nor shall foreigners drink your wine, for which you toiled. But you who harvest the grain shall eat it, and you shall praise the LORD; You who gather the grapes shall drink the wine in the courts of my sanctuary. Pass through, pass through the gates, prepare the way for the people; Build up, build up the highway, clear it of stones, raise up a standard over the nations. See, the LORD proclaims to the ends of the earth: Say to daughter Zion, your savior comes! Here is his reward with him, his recompense before him. They shall be called the holy people, the redeemed of the LORD, And you shall be called "Frequented," a city that is not forsaken.
God will show His love for Zion by decorating Her with bountiful gifts from heaven. Zion is the Promised Land Two, which flows with milk and honey. God desires this live, One on one, loving relationship between Him and His Bride, Zion. Scriptures reflect this in God's heart. At Christ's enthronement on earth, Jesus delivers Zion to our Father. Israel returns home to Zion to love and serve God with all her strength. The enthronement of Jesus, which is the birth of Zion, is the pinnacle event, according to God's prophets. “Zion is the climax of Christ's work of Salvation.

NAB2 REV 10:6

“There shall be no more delay. At the time when you hear the seventh angel blow his trumpet, the mysterious plan of God shall be fulfilled, as he promised to his servants the prophets.”

NAB2 REV 11:15

Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet. There were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world now belongs to our Lord and to his Anointed, and he will reign forever and ever.

NAB2 REV 12:10

Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have salvation and power come, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Anointed.
Catholic Popes delayed the release of the Blessed Mother's good news, in the coded message of the Third Secret of Fatima, for forty years (1960 - 2000). God commanded the message be released no later than 1960, so it could be deciphered, in the spirit of Daniel, by the Holy Spirit. God has mirrored our forty year delay in entering into the Promised Land II of Zion, by causing a forty year delay for Israel in entering into the Promised Land I, of Moses day.

NAB3 JOS 5:6

Now the Israelites wandered forty years in the wilderness, until all the warriors among the people that came forth from Egypt died off because they had not listened to the voice of the LORD. For the LORD swore that he would not let them see the land he had sworn to their ancestors to give us, a land flowing with milk and honey.
Messianic Reign, which ushers in the Promised Land II of Zion, is an infinitely more important and glorious event than when Israel entered into the Promised Land I. Catholic clergy are the Angels of the Apocalypse who, like Joshua, will blow the trumpets at Armageddon, and thus take us into Messianic Reign and the Promised Land Two of Zion. Pray for Christ's Church, the Catholic Church, that they gain the courage to bring forth God's will and proceed forward with the enthronement of Jesus as King and Ruler of the world. Amen!

This call is for you Pope Benedict XVI; It is God on the other end of the line. “REV 10:6 There shall be no more delay. At the time when you hear the seventh angel blow his trumpet, the mysterious plan of God shall be fulfilled, as he promised to his servants the prophets." Do you Pope Benedict XVI, have what it takes to be our modern day Joshua, to take us into the Promised Land Two of Zion? If not, step aside and find someone to take your place who can blow the trumpet on Zion.

The Pope who does take us into the Promised Land Two of Zion, bears a close resemblance to Joshua who takes Israel into the Promised Land One. At the seige of Babylon, at the Battle of Armageddon, seven trumpets blow. At Joshua's seige of Jericho, seven days of trumpets blow. The trumpets at Jericho are ram's horns, blown by priests. A horn of the Lamb, means one bearing Jesus' Power. A horn of the Lamb, blown by priest's at Armageddon, means that by Christ's Power, the walls of Babylon will fall. As the forces of Jesus are led by an angel with a drawn sword, Michael the Archangel, so does Joshua have an angel of the Lord, highly likely Michael the Archangel, leading him into combat at Jericho. As Joshua takes Israel into the Promised Land One, with the help of God and His angel, so does a Pope take us into the Promised Land Two of Zion, at the Battle of Armageddon, with the help of God and His angel. When Joshua orders the trumpets to blow on the seventh day, God hands over to Joshua, power over the kings of the Promised Land they are entering into. When the seventh trumpet of Armageddon blows, Jesus is enthroned as King and Ruler of the world and His priests will then rule over the kings of the world in the Promised Land Two of Christ's Kingdom of Zion. The Ark of the Covenant contains God's Ten Commandments. As it is the Ark of God's Covenant that precedes Israel into the Promised Land One, it is God's Ten Commandments which precede us into the Promised Land Two of Zion, at our future apocalyptic Battle of Armageddon.

NAB3 JOS 5:13 Siege of Jericho

While Joshua was near Jericho, he raised his eyes and saw one who stood facing him, drawn sword in hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, “Are you one of us or one of our enemies?” He replied, “Neither. I am the commander of the army of the LORD: now I have come.”

NAB3 JOS 6:2

And to Joshua the LORD said: I have delivered Jericho, its king, and its warriors into your power. Have all the soldiers circle the city, marching once around it. Do this for six days, with seven priests carrying ram’s horns ahead of the ark. On the seventh day march around the city seven times, and have the priests blow the horns. When they give a long blast on the ram’s horns and you hear the sound of the horn, all the people shall shout aloud. The wall of the city will collapse, and the people shall attack straight ahead.

NAB2 REV 18:1

After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth became illumined by his splendor. He cried out in a mighty voice: “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great.

In the second secret of Fatima, Sister Lucia tells us that the signal for, what seems to be Armageddon, will be a great light. In the Book of Revelations we are told that a sign of Armageddon will be a great light when God’s angel arrives. We should watch for this light. I would not count on the Virgin Mother Mary's sign being physical light in physical darkness. It was Jesus' Wisdom which lighted up a darkened world when He walked the earth. King Solomon prayed for Wisdom. If you read the Book of Wisdom you can see that it is Christ's Wisdom which King Solomon received. It will no doubt be, similar to King Solomon, Christ's Wisdom which will shine forth, from the angel of the apocalypse, to light up a darkened world at the onset of Armageddon. The great, apocalyptic, light will no doubt be the revelation of the Biblical Book of Revelations. 'Apocalypse' means to bring to light or understanding.

It will not be the angel himself who shines forth in the Second Secret of Fatima, and the Book of Revelations, but the message that God's angel brings to earth, that brings light to the whole world, at the onset of Armageddon.

As John the Baptist, like Elijah, illuminated the world with his message, to prepare the world for Jesus' birth, so will St. Michael, like Elijah, illuminate the world, with his message, to prepare the world for Christ's enthronement as King and Ruler of the world (MAL 3:23). It is, no doubt, Archangel Michael's message from God, in the future apocalypse, that is 'like God', which illuminates the world, prior to Armageddon.

The following is a statement from the Second Secret of Fatima.

A Portion of the Second Secret of Fatima

When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that he is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father.

NAB2 REV 18:1

After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth became illumined by his splendor. He cried out in a mighty voice: “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great.

NAB3 JOH 16:7

But I tell you the truth, it is better for you that I go. For if I do not go, the Advocate will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes he will convict the world in regard to sin and righteousness and condemnation: sin, because they do not believe in me; righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer see me; condemnation, because the ruler of this world has been condemned. "I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now. But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming. He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you. Everything that the Father has is mine; for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine and declare it to you. "A little while and you will no longer see me, and again a little while later and you will see me." So some of his disciples said to one another, "What does this mean that he is saying to us, 'A little while and you will not see me, and again a little while and you will see me,' and 'Because I am going to the Father'?" So they said, "What is this 'little while' (of which he speaks)? We do not know what he means." Jesus knew that they wanted to ask him, so he said to them, "Are you discussing with one another what I said, 'A little while and you will not see me, and again a little while and you will see me'? Amen, amen, I say to you, you will weep and mourn, while the world rejoices; you will grieve, but your grief will become joy. When a woman is in labor, she is in anguish because her hour has arrived; but when she has given birth to a child, she no longer remembers the pain because of her joy that a child has been born into the world. So you also are now in anguish. But I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you. On that day you will not question me about anything. Amen, amen, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you. Until now you have not asked anything in my name; ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.

NAB2 MAL 3:12

Then all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land, says the LORD of hosts. You have defied me in word, says the LORD, yet you ask, “What have we spoken against you?” You have said, “It is vain to serve God, and what do we profit by keeping his command, And going about in penitential dress in awe of the LORD of hosts? Rather must we call the proud blessed; for indeed evildoers prosper, and even tempt God with impunity.” Then they who fear the LORD spoke with one another, and the LORD listened attentively; And a record book was written before him of those who fear the LORD and trust in his name. And they shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts, my own special possession, on the day I take action. And I will have compassion on them, as a man has compassion on his son who serves him. Then you will again see the distinction between the just and the wicked; Between him who serves God, and him who does not serve him. For lo, the day is coming, blazing like an oven, when all the proud and all evildoers will be stubble, And the day that is coming will set them on fire, leaving them neither root nor branch, says the LORD of hosts. But for you who fear my name, there will arise the sun of justice with its healing rays; And you will gambol like calves out of the stall and tread down the wicked; They will become ashes under the soles of your feet, on the day I take action, says the LORD of hosts. Remember the law of Moses my servant, which I enjoined him on Horeb, The statutes and ordinances for all Israel.

Lo, I will send you Elijah, the prophet, Before the day of the LORD comes, the great and terrible day, To turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the land with doom. Lo, I will send you Elijah, the prophet, Before the day of the LORD comes, the great and terrible day. Doom.

The End of the Old Testament
The Third Secret of Fatima tells us that the angel's brightness and glory only fades to the brightness of the Blessed Mother of Jesus, Mary. The angel is Michael the Archangel. As Mary delivers God's precious Jesus into the world, Michael delivers God's precious Zion into the world. As the apple of God's eye, second only to Jesus, is His precious Zion. As Mary precedes Christ's birth, life, death and resurrection, Archangel Michael precedes Christ's enthronement as King and Ruler of the world. When Jesus, a descendant of King David, takes the throne as King of the world, Zion is born. Zions birth, at the very moment that Jesus is enthroned as King of the world, is the second most important event of all time.


NAB2 REV 12:1

A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was with child and wailed aloud in pain as she labored to give birth. Then another sign appeared in the sky; it was a huge red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on its heads were seven diadems. Its tail swept away a third of the stars in the sky and hurled them down to the earth. Then the dragon stood before the woman about to give birth, to devour her child when she gave birth. She gave birth to a son, a male child, destined to rule all the nations with an iron rod. Her child was caught up to God and his throne. The woman herself fled into the desert where she had a place prepared by God, that there she might be taken care of for twelve hundred and sixty days. Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. The dragon and its angels fought back, but they did not prevail and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. The huge dragon, the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, who deceived the whole world, was thrown down to earth, and its angels were thrown down with it. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have salvation and power come, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Anointed.
“J.M.J. The third part of the secret revealed at the Cova da Iria-Fatima, on 13 July 1917.

...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 "Third Secret of Fatima" indicates that Michael the Archangel may, or may not be, an Apostolic Successor. It is unclear to the children of Fatima as to whether the great one "dressed in white" is Catholic Clergy, like a pope, bishop or priest, or not. This is an interesting concept. The great one "dressed in white" is, no doubt, Michael the Archangel. The weapon that we always see Archangel Michael wielding is Christ's sword of anathema. How could the great archangel Michael not be able to wield the weapon he is known, and pictured, as wielding, which is Church anathema? The answer is; Chain of command. Jesus is the One giving the command to His angel to wield the sickle at Armageddon. The one wielding the sickle is the great angel standing over sea and land reading the scroll. Michael the Archangel is the one leading Christ's angels into combat with Satan. Michael, like Jesus, is a commander of troops. American president George Bush commanded troops into battle in Iraq. Did president George Bush fire any weapons or kill anyone in Iraq? Could American president Barak Obama physically fire a nuclear war head? American presidents are leaders and not the ones firing the weapons of war that they command. In the same way, according to the "Third Secret of Fatima", Michael the Archangel, could or could not, be the one actually firing the weapon that he is know, and pictured, as wielding.

Archangel Michael is a general, leader, and commander, of Christ's forces on earth at Armageddon. Archangel Michael himself may, or may not, be capable, (it takes an apostolic Successor to wield the sword of Christ's mouth, anathema), of wielding the weapon he is known for, and pictured, as wielding. Michael the archangel, Christ's great leader and commander at the Battle of Armageddon, may or actually may not be Catholic Clergy. Michael the Archangel may only lead Catholic Clergy, those capable of wielding the sword of Christ's mouth, into combat at Armageddon. The 'St. Peter at the pearly gates' Pope, holding the 'Keys to the Kingdom', at the Battle of Armageddon, does seem to already carry the angelic name Apollyon in Greek or Abaddon in Hebrew (REV 9:11).

The Blessed Mother's Third Secret of Fatima announces the near future Enthronement of Jesus as King and Ruler of the world. Hallelujah! Let Jesus Rule! Let God's Holy City of Zion Come to us! We pray and beg to You, Our Father, Who art in heaven, deliver us soon, from the evil one and into Christ's Kingdom Come, as we have relentlessly prayed to You, over the past two and a half millenniums. We pray to you Father, deliver us soon, as the Blessed Mother of Fatima has indicated to us in her 'Third Secret of Fatima'. Hallelujah! Amen!

“J.M.J. The third part of the secret revealed at the Cova da Iria-Fatima, on 13 July 1917.

I write in obedience to you, my God, who command me to do so through his Excellency the Bishop of Leiria and through your Most Holy Mother and mine. After the two parts which I have already explained, 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!'. And we saw in an immense light that is God: ‘something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it' a Bishop dressed in White ‘we had the impression that it was the Holy Father'. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions. Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God.

NAB2 MAR 11:9

Those preceding him as well as those following kept crying out: “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that is to come! Hosanna in the highest!”

NAB2 MAT 6:9

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.

NAB2 LUK 1:30

Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father, and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.”

NAB2 MIC 5:1

But you, Bethlehem-Ephrathah too small to be among the clans of Judah, From you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel; Whose origin is from of old, from ancient times. (Therefore the Lord will give them up, until the time when she who is to give birth has borne, And the rest of his brethren shall return to the children of Israel.) He shall stand firm and shepherd his flock by the strength of the LORD, in the majestic name of the LORD, his God; And they shall remain, for now his greatness shall reach to the ends of the earth; he shall be peace.

NAB2 2SA 7:8

“Now then, speak thus to my servant David, ‘The LORD of hosts has this to say: It was I who took you from the pasture and from the care of the flock to be commander of my people Israel. I have been with you wherever you went, and I have destroyed all your enemies before you. And I will make you famous like the great ones of the earth. I will fix a place for my people Israel; I will plant them so that they may dwell in their place without further disturbance. Neither shall the wicked continue to afflict them as they did of old, since the time I first appointed judges over my people Israel. I will give you rest from all your enemies. The LORD also reveals to you that he will establish a house for you. And when your time comes and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your heir after you, sprung from your loins, and I will make his kingdom firm. It is he who shall build a house for my name. And I will make his royal throne firm forever. I will be a father to him, and he shall be a son to me. And if he does wrong, I will correct him with the rod of men and with human chastisements; but I will not withdraw my favor from him as I withdrew it from your predecessor Saul, whom I removed from my presence. Your house and your kingdom shall endure forever before me; your throne shall stand firm forever.’”

NAB3 REV 12:13

Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. The dragon and its angels fought back, but they did not prevail and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. The huge dragon, the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, who deceived the whole world, was thrown down to earth, and its angels were thrown down with it.

Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have salvation and power come, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Anointed. For the accuser of our brothers is cast out, who accuses them before our God day and night. They conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; love for life did not deter them from death. Therefore, rejoice you heavens, and you who dwell in them. But woe to you, earth and sea, for the Devil has come down to you in great fury, for he knows he has but a short time."

But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle, so that she could fly to her place in the desert, where, far from the serpent, she was taken care of for a year, two years, and a half-year. The serpent, however, spewed a torrent of water out of his mouth after the woman to sweep her away with the current. But the earth helped the woman and opened its mouth and swallowed the flood that the dragon spewed out of its mouth. Then the dragon became angry with the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring, those who keep God's commandments and bear witness to Jesus. It took its position on the sand of the sea.

NAB ISA 9:1

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; Upon those who dwelt in the land of gloom a light has shone. You have brought them abundant joy and great rejoicing, As they rejoice before you as at the harvest, as men make merry when dividing spoils. For the yoke that burdened them, the pole on their shoulder, And the rod of their taskmaster you have smashed, as on the day of Midian. For every boot that tramped in battle, every cloak rolled in blood, will be burned as fuel for flames. For a child is born to us, a son is given us; upon his shoulder dominion rests. They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of Peace. His dominion is vast and forever peaceful, From David’s throne, and over his kingdom, which he confirms and sustains By judgment and justice, both now and forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this!

NAB MAT 9:13

Subject us not to trial but deliver us from the evil one.

On the day of the great miracle of the sun in Fatima (1917), the Blessed Mother told Str. Lucia, "The war ends today. The soldiers will be coming home soon." WWI which was raging at that time, did not end as the Blessed Mother seemed to be indicating. The confusion stems from their understanding of the Blessed Mother's message. The Blessed Mother was referring to God's war with Israel and mankind. God's war with Israel and the world is over. It is time to repent and go home to God. God is inviting us to come to Him, to Christ's Kingdom Come, on earth, of Zion. We have delayed long enough; Almost one hundred years. God's war with Israel and the world is over! Let us go, to be with Jesus on earth, in His Kingdom Come of Zion!.
