EVENTS IN JAPAN HAVE MANY SCURRYING TO LOOK BACK AT ALLEGED RECENT PROPHECIES
It is fast and furious. Right after the Japan quake, many pointed to what they saw as accurate prophecies of the disaster.
There is, first, Pedro Regis, the alleged seer from Anguera, Brazil, who last year seemed to have correctly foreseen a flood in Madeira, Portugal, the Haitian disaster, and a potent Chilean quake.
Now, some saw another “hit” in that Pedro (whom his diocese has not yet discerned) had just a few weeks ago quoted the “Virgin Mary” as saying: “Death will pass through Assis [a municipality in the state of São Paulo in Brazil] and my poor children will have to weep and lament. Akita (Japan) will drink the bitter cup of pain. Bend your knees in prayer. Your victory is in The Lord. Open your hearts and accept My appeals. Now is the time of Grace for all of you.”
That was February 15, and in fact Akita — which is in the northern region of Japan — indeed felt the effects of the quake — albeit not like some areas; it was left in the dark by a great power outage. Still, it was interesting because Akita was the site of another alleged set of revelations to a nun named Sister Agnes Sasagawa, who heard Mary’s voice from a statue that wept 101 times and foresaw fire falling from the sky in the future.
Nearly right at a year ago, on March 20, 2010, Pedro quoted the apparition he claims to see as saying, “A megaquake will shake Japan and my poor children will weep and lament. Greater pain never existed.”
Moreover, last October 30, Pedro reported the words, “You are heading towards a future of great difficulties. The earth will shake and Egypt will drink the bitter chalice of pain. Pray. Pray. Pray. The Middle East will experience a heavy cross and My poor children will shout for help. The beautiful country will be in tears for the death of her children. Bend your knees in prayer. Your victory is in The Lord. Don’t cross your arms. This is the message I give you in the name of the Holy Trinity. “
The question, of course, it whether a seer who mentions so many places is not likely by the simple turns of chance to hit a few predictions. Pedro, no doubt a good believer, receives several messages a week, and a single message often mentions two or more locales. He has cited disasters for 22 locales just since February 1. At that rate, well over a hundred places are mentioned in a year.
Still, Pedro draws much interest, and so does a Protestant, David Wilkerson, who has had a notable recent “miss” (foreseeing utter financial destruction right after the recent Wall Street crisis) but who wrote a book in 1975 about a vision he had in 1973 called The Vision in which (on page 32) he said: “The U.S. is going to experience, in the not-so-distant future, the most tragic earthquake in its history... Another earthquake, possibly in Japan, may precede the one I see coming here.”
Of course, Japan is always a likely candidate (see Sent To Earth). We even traveled there specifically to research quakes. But there is certainly much going on and not just there. In Aayanagar, India, an image of Mary is weeping blood and oil since last month and images of Jesus continue to be reported in many places (more on this next week). Perhaps we can speculate this:
When the first of several “warnings” prophesied at Medjugorje are announced, it might be on the scale of what just transpired in Japan — since seer Mirjana Soldo once replied, when asked if people would rush to see the event in her first secret, that it would be a local event that everyone would hear about from afar but that “it is one thing to go and see a sign, quite another to go and see suffering or a disaster. Who would want, for example, to go to Italy to see a dam collapse?”
Just before the recent quake, we were receiving concerns about the New Madrid fault in the Midwest (which created a massive series of tremors in the early 1800s south of St. Louis), and it is peculiar how the Japanese quake was preceded by the destructive quake in Christchurch, New Zealand (note the name), a tremor in Japan itself, a quake that destroyed buildings earlier this week in China, a volcano that suddenly heightened its activity on the Big Island of Hawaii, and a strange, massive fish kill in southern California (not to mention all the weather across the continental U.S.). Meanwhile, a similarly historic quake once occurred (in Alaska) on Good Friday (1964) — the last Friday of Lent, where this is the first Friday of the same holy period.
It takes no seer to see that “signs” are following one another with increased and perhaps portentous rapidity. Noted one viewer, John Olenik — from snow-buried Upstate New York: “The first time I looked at the clock today, the time read 1:11. I then read my e-mail from someone who is trapped in the Tokyo airport, giving an account of what is happening. His e-mail was dated March 11, 11. Significance? The signs are becoming stronger, are they not?”
Thanks for the addition.
Pray for the consecrate Russia, and forget about all these false apparitions and seers.
re: the “strange, massive fish kill in southern California”
That’s near me. The local paper, The Daily Breeze, yesterday said the fish have a toxin in them that comes from an algae bloom. The toxin affects the nervous system of the fish and that probably contributed to the unfortunate movement of the fish into the marina where there were too many agitated fish confined in a place with not enough oxygen.
The article said that die-offs like this affecting fish or sea birds have happened occasionally, and they are looking for where in the local waters the algae bloom may have occured.
This fish die-off is not a phenomenon of dire spiritual significance, it appears.
[BTW, I gave up FR for Lent, except for Sundays, in case anybody is waiting for a response from me on any other day.]
