Watching for signs of the Apocalypse
Prepare ye the way of the Lord
The late October appearances by Ivan Dragicevic were cancelled unexpectantly,
at the last minute, by a decree from the Vatican Conference for the Doctrine
of the Faith, dated October 21, 2013.
I planned to attend the appearance by Ivan on October 26, 2013 at St.
Richards Church in Danvers, MA, and when I checked the day before, I learned
that the only two appearances on Ivan Schedule were both cancelled.
On Nov 8th, I learned why at the site "Medjugorje Today". The following link
details the reason for the cancellation:

The Prophet is a Watchman
Thus the word of the Lord came to me. Son of man, speak thus to your countrymen: When I bring the sword
against a country, and the people of this country select one of their number, to be their watchman,
and the watchman, seeing the sword coming against the country, blows the trumpet to warn the people,
anyone hearing but not heeding the warning of the trumpet, and therefore (is) slain by the sword that
comes against him, shall be responsible for his own death. He heard the trumpet blast, yet refused to take
warning; he is responsible for his own death, for had he taken warning, he would (have) escaped with his
But if the watchman sees the sword coming and fails to blow the warning trumpet, so that the sword comes
and takes anyone, I will hold the watchman responsible for that person's death, even though that person
is taken because of his own sin.
You, son of man, I have appointed watchman for the house of Israel; when you hear me say anything, you
shall warn them for me. If I tell the wicked man that he shall surely die, and you do not speak out to
dissuade the wicked man from his way, he [the wicked man] shall die for his guilt, but I will hold you
responsible for his death. But if you warn the wicked man, trying to turn him from his way, and he
refuses to turn from his way, he shall die for his guilt, but you shall save yourself.

This site is dedicated to watching for signs of the 'End Times'. Without setting a date, I believe that
the Apocalypse will be upon us within my lifetime, and I'm in my early sixties.
The primary reason that I believe it may be within my lifetime, is because of the messages of the
Medjugorje Aparitions, and the Papal Prophecies of Saint Malachy. It addition, there is a lot of other
supporting evidence, that I am detailing on this website.
There are people who think that because a passage in the Bible says that we will not know the day or the hour
of Jesus's return, that we should not try to discover when the Apocalypse is near.
"But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone"
On the contrary, in Matthew 24, when Jesus explains how to be prepared for the second coming, it says:
"Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its
leaves, you know that summer is near; so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is
near, right at the door." (Matthew 24:32-33).
It is our duty to watch for signs of the Apocalypse, because Jesus tells us to watch for signs, like we
would watch for signs of spring, or for a robber in the middle of the night, in Matthew 24:
"Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. Two women will be
grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one will be left. Therefore be on the alert, for you do
not know which day your Lord is coming. But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known
at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have
allowed his house to be broken into. For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is
coming at an hour when you do not think He will." (Matthew 24:40-44).
The Book of Revelation should not be dismissed lightly, as the Catholic Church generally does, because it
states in Revelation 22:7:
"'Behold, I am coming soon.' Blessed is the one who keeps the prophetic message of this book. (Revelation 22:7).
To emphasize the point once more, three verses later, in Revelation 22:10, it states:
Then he said to me 'Do not seal up the prophetic words of this book, for the appointed time is near.
Who will listen to Moses and the prophets?
There was a rich man who dressed in purple garments and fine linen and dined sumptuously each day.
And lying at his door was a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who would have gladly eaten
his fill of the scraps that fell from the rich man's table. Dogs even used to come and lick his sores.
When the poor man died, he was carried away by angels to the bosum of Abraham. The rich man also died
and was buried, and from the netherworld, where he was in torment, he raised his eyes and saw Abraham
far off and Lazarus at his side. And he cried out, 'Father Abraham, have pity on me. Send Lazarus
to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am suffering torment in these flames.'
Abraham replied, 'My child, remember that you received what was good during your lifetime and
Lazarus likewise received what was bad; but now he is comforted here, whereas you are tormented.
Moreover, between us and you a great chasm is established to prevent anyone from crossing who might
want to go from our side to yours or your side to ours,' He said, 'Then I beg you, father, send
him to my father's house, for I have five brothers, so that he may warn them, lest thay too come to
this place of torment.' But Abraham replied, 'They have Moses and the prophets. Let them listen
to them.' He said, 'Oh no, father Abraham, but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will
repent.' Then Abraham said, 'If they will not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will
they be persuaded if someone should rise from the dead.'"
[Charles Dickens' A Christmes Carol is based on this passage.]
Most of us won't pass through the Narrow Gate.
He [Jesus] passed through towns and villages, teaching as He went and making His way to Jerusalem.
Someone asked Him, "Lord, will only a few people be saved?" He answered them,
"Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I tell you, will attempt to enter but will not
be strong enough. After the Master of the House has arisen and locked the door, then you will stand
outside knocking and saying, 'Lord, open the door for us.' He will say to you in reply, 'I do not
know where you are from.' And you will say, 'We ate and drank in Your company and You taught in our
streets.' Then He will say to you, 'I do not know where [you] are from. Depart from me, all you
evildoers!' And there will be wailing and grinding of teeth when you see Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
and all the prophets in the Kingdom of God, and yourselves cast out. And people will come from the
east and the west and from the north and the south and will recline at table in the Kingdom of God.
For behold, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last."
90% of us may be shut out of Heaven's Narrow Gate!
As He [Jesus] continued His journey to Jerusalem, He traveled through Samaria and Galilee. As
He was entereing a village, ten leppers met (Him). They stood at a distance from Him and raised
their voice, saying, "Jesus, Master! Have pity on us!" And when He saw them, He said,
"Go show yourselves to the priests."
As they were going, they were cleansed. And one of them, realizing he had been healed, returned,
Glorifying God in a loud voice: and he fell at the feet of Jesus and thanked Him. He was a Samaritan,
Jesus said in reply,
"Ten were cleansed were they not? Where are the other nine? Has none but this foreigner returned
to give thanks to God?"
Then He said to him,
"Stand up and go; your faith has saved you."

The Apocalyspe and the Second Coming
are part of the 10 Secrets!
Medjugorje Visionary Mirjana Soldo was asked whether the Blessed Mother's appearances at Medjugorje mean
that we have entered the End Times, and whether the Blessed Mother has said anything about the Apocalypse
or the Second Coming of Christ.
Her answer was: "That is part of the secrets. I would not like to talk about it."

The explicit Warnings of Our Lady at Medjugorje
Medjugorje Messages from Our Lady. Our Lady has said that the Medjugorje Apparitions are the
last time she will have to appear on earth again. She has given the Visionaries 10 Secrets that include
very serious chastisements. Our Lady has said:
"You cannot imagine what is going to happen, nor what the Eternal Father will send to the earth."
The 10 secrets will be announced to the world, each in turn, three days in advance, by Fr. Petar, who is

The amazing accuracy of St. Malachy's
St. Malachy's Papal Prophecies. St. Malachy is a 12th century Irish Bishop and Saint. St. Malachy constructed
a list of 111 or 112, (see my St. Malachy Page), latin phrases, each corresponding to the future popes, each
in turn. St Malachy's nearly 700 year record is excellent, [I rate it 93% accurate], and the present Pope
Benedict XVI is #111, which is the last or next to last, Pope on the list, before Judgement Day:
St. Malachy's Final Prophecy:
"In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock
among many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will
judge the people."

Cardinal Giacomo Biffi says that the Antichrist is
'Walking Among us'.
Cardinal Giacomo Biffi of Bologna, Italy [Retired 2004], said on September, 18, 2004 that the "Antichrist" was already
on Earth in the guise of a prominent philanthropist whose concern for human rights, the environment, and advocacy of
ecumenicism, masks his real aim: the destruction of Christianity and "the death of God".

New Sanhedrin Established, and a New Temple is approved!
Jerusalem Report, on 6/29/2008, reported that a Convention headed by Rabhi Glick,
reestablished the New Sanhedrin, which hasn't been in power in over 1,600 years! The Sanhedrin is the Court
of Israel, based on the Torah.
The New Sanhedrin approved the construction of the New Temple, which will be built soon, in anticipation of
the return of the Messiah. Some suggest the the New Temple could be a modular temple that could be set-up in
a matter of days, and would be the seat for the Messiah when he returns.

Israel National News, on 7/03/2008, reported that new priestly garments are being measured for
the true descendants of the Tribe of Levite, as only Levites can be priests. No such garments have been seen
in 1,938 years, since the Temple's destruction in 70 A.D. The priests are being measured from head to foot,

State of Israel Born, May 14, 1948
The State of Israel was born on May 14th, 1948, and Jerusalem was secured by Israel during the 6 Day War,
June 5-10, 1967. Previous to that time, Israel did not exist for more than 2,500 years, as is required for
the fulfillment of the Great Tribulation/Armageddon/Apocalypse. In the Great Tribulation and the Battle of
Armageddon, war is fought over the fate of Israel and Jerusalem, so Israel must exist first!

The unfulfilled Third Secret of Fatima, (France 1917)
Our Lady's Medjugorje message on August 25th, 1991 linked Medjugorje to Fatima with this remark:
"I invite you to renunciation for nine days, so that with your help everything that I wanted to realize
through the secrets I began at Fatima, may be fulfilled. I call you, dear children, to grasp the
importance of my coming, and the seriousness of the situation."
The Catholic Church believes that Third Secret of Fatima has already been fulfilled, and it is an allegorical
story, relating to the attempted assasination of Pope Pius VI in Vatican Square. I disagree and believe that
the fulfillment of the Third Secret awaits us.
This is the Full Text of the famous THIRD SECRET OF FATIMA:
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.

A mathematical exercise to put us in the ballpark!
There are several key numbers in the Bible, and the Catholic Church- 3, 7, and 12, for instance.
Using '7' as a key number, I believe that the world will consist of 7 Millinemiums, before the Final
Judgement Day in Heaven.
There were 4 Millinemiums from Adam to Christ's Birth, 2 since, from Christ's Birth to the present day, and
1 Millinemium coming after the Great Tribulation and the Apocalypse, during which Jesus rules the earth
literally, on earth. At the end of the Millinemium, there is the Final Judgement Day.
Now here's the Biblical Math that supports this case, thanks to Dr. Jack Van Impe:
Matthew 3:17 says that there are 42 Generations between Abraham and Christ. That period was approximately 2,160
years. If we divide 2,160 years by 42 generations, the answer is approximately 52 years. Now we know long a
Luke Chapter 3 says that there were 77 Generations from Adam to Christ's Birth. If we multiply 77 generations
by 52 years, the answer is 4,004 years. This justifies the 4 Millinemium from Adam to Christ.
(There have been about 2,012 years since Christ's Birth , given that Our Lord was most likely born in
June, 2 BC, [and the Maji visited Jesus on December 25th, 2 BC]). -FollowThisSite.com Webmaster
Israel was finally created after thousands of years, in 1948, and then won back in 1967. Prior to that time
the Apocalypse could not have been fulfilled because there was no Isreal. The 1st generatiion alive since that
time will witness the Great Tribulation and the Lord's return. The time of the 1st generation extends from
1967 to 2019 [52 years].
The 4 Millinemium before Christ's birth, and the 2 Millinemium since, makes 6 Millinemiums, and the Seventh is
the final thousand years after the Great Tribulation- Apocalypse- Armageddon, and just before the Final
Judgement Day, and the rewards of Heaven.
"He seized the Dragon or Satan, and tied it up for a thousand years and threw it into the abyss, which he
locked over and sealed, so that it could no longer lead the nations astray until the thousand years are
completed." (Revelation 20)

A 'loose math' link between Fatima and Medjugorje
The number '3' is very important in the end times. Revelation is full of 3 and 7 references. Perhaps Fatima
is linked to Medjugorje in another way. Suspose Our Lady appeared at Medjugorje in 1981 because it is
two-thirds [2/3] time from Fatima's 1917 appearance until the time of the First Medjugorje Secret.
The apparitions at Fatima occurred in 1917. The initial apparition at Medjugorje occurred in 1981. There are
64 years between them. If the 64 years represents 2/3 of the time until the First Medjugorje Secret, and the
time from 1981 [Medjugorje], until the First Medjugorje Secret represents 1/3, then the First Secret might be
revealed in 1917 + 64 + 32 = 2013.

In Jan Connell's 1990 book Queen of the Cosmos, the Medjugorje Visionary Vicka was
asked several questions about our names. [Some of this material about our given names is covered in the
Medjugorje section of this website from material in Jan Connell's 1992 book Visions of the
To summarize, God gave each of us our names before God made the world, because he knew each of us. God
actually gives each of the parents the grace to name the child with the name God has already picked out
for us! To saythe least, this certainly beggs the question of free will, if you think hard about it.
In particular, in Queen of the Cosmos, Vicka is asked:
"Do you think your being a visionary was a coincidence?"
Vicka's answer was:
"Nothing is a coincidence. Everything is a project of God. Before God made this world, He planned each
one of us. The Blessed Mother told me He knew us. He called us by name before He made the world. Each
of us is totally known and loved by God, before we are placed in our mother's womb. He selected the
particular century in which we would be born, our nationality, our family, our sex, our strengths and
weaknesses. Everything we are and we have from God are gifts."
Now look at the heading of this section. There are six red letters and they are the first letter initials
of the six Medjugorje Visionaries:
M -- Mirjana
M -- Marija
J -- Jacov
V -- Vicka
I -- Ivanka
I -- Ivan
I believe that the six letters, arranged in this fashion could be hinting at a Roman Numeral Number. Granted
the 'J' doesn't belong, but if a Visionary's name was 'Xavier', for instance, it would have been too obvious.
Perhaps this is a mystery with only a subtle hint. The letter 'X' is used extensively in the Roman Catholic
Faith to represent Christ, and 'J', (Jesus), seems to be an acceptable substitute letter. To me, it looks
like the Roman Numeral Number '2017', and serves as a hint or reminder to the Visionaries or the rest of
the world of the date of the First Medjugorje Secret's revelation.
Granted, if the year '2007' hadn't already come and gone, I would have to speculate as to whether the
initials referred to '2007', or '2017' because they could have also been arranged like this: MMVII=J

the United States will elect a new President in November; construction of the new Freedom Tower will be
complete in New York City; the sun will flip its magnetic poles as it does at the end of every 11-year
sunspot cycle; and, as I'm sure you've heard by now, the Mayan calendar completes its 5,125 year cycle,
