Sacred Scripture not only predicted the destruction of Solomon’s Temple, which happened in the year 70 A.D., but also the “diaspora”, the expulsion of the Jewish people from the promised land, which finished in the year 135 A.D.

Deuteronomy clearly states: “and you shall be taken away from the land which thou shall go in to possess. The Lord shall scatter thee among all people from the farthest parts of the earth to the ends thereof” (Deut. 28, 63-64).

Jesus Christ also predicted both of these things: “these things which you see (the majesty of the Temple), the days will come in which there shall not be left a stone upon a stone that shall not be thrown down (LK. 21, 6) ...And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captives to all nations” (LK. 21, 24).

Both these things were permitted by God against His people as a punishment for having rejected His own Son, for having killed the Messiah that was sent to them. From these events on, for nearly two thousand years, God has been silent regarding His people allowing all kinds of persecution.

In our days, God has partially intervened again in favour of the Jews. The prophet Ezequiel predicted that after the “diaspora”, the Israelites would be brought again by God to the Promised Land: “Behold I will take the children of Israel from the midst of the nations whither they are gone: and I will gather them on every side, and will bring them to their own land (Ez. 37, 21). This prophecy was fulfilled on the 14th of May 1948, when the State of Israel was created. From then on the so-called “End Times” began, the final part of what Jesus Christ and St. Paul called the “times of the gentiles” (Rom. 11, 25-26), which are now nearing completion and will give way to the “times of the Kingdom”, the sovereign government of Christ in the world, which the Jews will be forced to accept due to the treachery of the false Messiah, called the “antichrist” by St. John.

Christ clearly announced to His disciples the end of this stage of the history of salvation in which we are living, in which having been rejected by the Jews, God turned towards the gentiles to invite them to form part of His Church: “And Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the gentiles, till the times of the gentiles be fulfilled” (LK. 21, 24).

What will happen now, after the return of the Jews to Palestine, is the war of Gog and Magog, described by the Prophet Ezequiel, in which Russia and Arab countries attack Israel: “Behold I come against you O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal (Present day Russia) (...) and I will bring thee forth, and all thy army (...) With them are Persia (Today Iran), Cush (Ethiopia) and Put (Libya), all of them armed with shields and helmets. Gomer, with all its troops, and the house of Togarmah (Turkey), from the far north with all its troops and many peoples with you (...). After many years you will invade a country saved from the sword, and is gathered out of many nations, to the mountains of Israel (...) In the last days you will attack my people Israel like a cloud to cover the land” (Ez. 38, 3-8, 16).

But this world war, in which many countries will join together to attack Israel (And Europe, according to private revelations) will be frustrated and will conclude, as Ezequiel says, with a powerful divine intervention which will end the invasion. Unfortunately, the conflict will end with the signing of a false peace agreement, signed by the one the Prophet Daniel refers to as the “Fourth Beast” (Called the “antichrist” by St. John), who will rule over the world from that moment for seven years: “and for another week he will seal an agreement with many” (Dan. 9, 27).

Erroneously, the entire world will proclaim the war that occurred as the battle of Armageddon, that the millennium of wellbeing has begun, and that the new leader who has risen from the ashes of this world conflict is the awaited Messiah.

But in reality, what will have begun is the supreme deceit, the false peace and with it, the final battle between good and evil, between the anointed one of Satan and the true Messiah, who will really return seven years later (at the end of this period of deceit and tribulation) to destroy the antichrist and to establish His Kingdom of justice, holiness and true peace.

The false peace established by the antichrist and his false prophet, who will be the leader of the united religions, is an imitation of the true peace that Jesus Christ will offer on His return. The false peace is Satan’s last attempt to deceive men and lose them with his seduction and dominion.

The opening of the first seal of the Apocalypse describes for us the false peace deceitfully imposed by the antichrist. The system of the false peace is represented by a horseman who rides on a white horse (Apoc 6, 1-2). To make the false world peace possible, first there must be a global crisis, a great false flag war to unite all religious and political forces under a new universal consensus, and to enthrone the leader who proposes this world peace. This is precisely the result that the war of Gog and Magog will provoke. “And I saw that the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures as it were the voice of thunder, saying: Come and see. And I saw: and behold a white horse, and he that sat on him had a bow, and there was a crown given him, and he went forth conquering that he might conquer” (Apoc. 6, 1-2).

After the previous chapter of the Apocalypse when the Lamb (Our Lord Jesus Christ) receives the title of ownership of the whole earth (Apoc. 5, 7), the Lamb opens the first of the seven seals (the first four seals correspond to what are called “the four horsemen of the Apocalypse”).

Some people confuse he who rides the white horse with Christ, but clearly that is not so, given that it is Christ who opens the sealed book and cannot at once be the horseman. On the other hand, the Greek word to describe the “crown” that this rider conquers is stephanos, a crown that is won as a prize. On the contrary, Christ wears a crown that is called diadema in Greek, which is a royal crown, and is given to Him because He is a King. Besides, Christ will return carrying a sword (Apoc. 19, 15), while the rider of chapter 6 carries a bow.

The horseman riding the white horse is the antichrist but not as an individual, just as the other three horsemen are not concrete people either. Rather it is a system, a force (of the false peace), which the second horseman (red horse) will make disappear with the second seal (Apoc 6, 4), causing situations of famine (third seal-black horseman, Apoc 6, 5-6) and death (fourth seal, yellow horse, Apoc 6, 7-8) which are normally the two consequences of war. All in all the antichrist and especially his false prophet, have to do with promoting that false peace which consists of a universal neo pagan harmony, merely human and devoid of the salvation brought about by Christ.

The horseman on the white horse carries a bow, but no arrows, which shows that his conquest is by deceit and not by bloody victories. He has a crown but not that of a king, but of somebody who holds power by astuteness and deceit. He has appropriated it.

On the other hand, the white horse that Jesus Christ will ride in His Parousia will be a horse with his own real power, not a system or a metaphor. St. John tells us that this is how Christ will descend to defeat the antichrist in the battle of Armageddon, to the north of Israel: “and I saw heaven opened; and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called faithful and true, and with justice doth He judge and fight” (Apoc 19, 11). And the Acts of the Apostles confirm that the return of Christ will be physical: “that same Jesus that you have seen go up into the clouds, in the same way He will return as you have seen Him ascend” (Acts 1, 11). Also the Gospels: “After the tribulation of those days, you will see the Son of Man come in the clouds with great power and glory” (Mt. 24, 29 and following).

After the war of Gog and Magog, in which many nations will be involved, the antichrist will use the longing for peace as a satanic trap so as to position himself over the world. This “Beast of the Sea” (political power) prophesied by Daniel, will convince everyone that he can give peace to the world. He will deceive Israel especially, who since their return to the Promised Land have spent decades desiring peace and waiting for the Messiah to come to give it to them. “And for another week (seven years) the antichrist will confirm an Israeli agreement with many” (Dan 9, 27).

But the false peace and the pact signed by the false Messiah in Israel’s favour only last three and a half years (“half a week”). The false peace brought by the antichrist and the unified religion of the false prophet will be interrupted when the false Messiah violates the agreement, betraying the Jewish people, profaning the Temple and making himself adored as God. From then on he will start to persecute not only Christians, but all those who did not submit to the false peace of his world government, including the Jews themselves.

According to private prophecies and revelations, the unification of religions will take place when there are “two Popes in Rome”, in an identical context to Benedict XVI and Francis. When there are two popes there will be a sudden invasion of Europe by Russia coinciding with the war of Ezequiel. Then the legitimate Pope will have to flee Rome and seek refuge while the antipope will remain governing the church.

According to St. Peter, the antichrist will reveal himself when the legitimate Pope has been expelled: “Only that he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way. And then that wicked one shall be revealed”. (2 Thess. 2, 6-8).

At that moment, the antipope will finish betraying the Faith by accepting the unification of religions and renouncing catholic identity itself:

» Fr. Paul Kramer says, “The antipope and his collaborators will be apostates, as Sister Lucy said, followers of the devil, who will work for evil and fear nothing”.

» There are also the words of the Virgin revealed at La Salette to Melanie: “Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist”.

» Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, an Augustine religious, said in 1820: “I saw strong opposition between two Popes and I saw how disastrous the consequences of the false church would be, I saw that the church of Peter would be rocked by the plan of a sect. When the reign of the antichrist is near, a false religion will appear which will be against the unity of God and of His Church. This will cause the greatest schism ever seen in the world”

The new religion will support the unification of all religions and the false peace, fulfilling what was said by Christ that even the elect could be deceived.

Only Jesus Christ can give true peace, and His is completely different from that given by the antichrist and the false prophet: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you, not as the world gives it do I give it to you” (John 14, 27).

His peace is true because it comes from the conversion of the heart and from reconciliation with the Father, which is possible because Christ redeemed us with the merits of His passion, death and resurrection. Christ freed us from the slavery of sin and the resulting lack of interior peace: “And may the peace of Christ reign in your hearts, to which you were called in a single body... (Col. 3, 15).

The peace of Christ is not a peace of pure external coexistence, a fruit of having renounced revealed supremacy and having accepted coexistence with other creeds. His is internal and transforms the mind and the spirit: “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4, 7).

The peace of Christ does not depend on a fragile balance of religious forces, but on the grace that He Himself gives us. It was the first thing He gave to His afflicted disciples after the Resurrection: “Peace be with you”.

The peace of Christ is not for everybody: “There is no peace for the wicked” (Is. 48, 22). It is reserved for the believer justified by Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ: “He is our peace” (Eph. 2, 14).

The peace of Christ is a peace that will unite all people in a true and intimate way, as in the past it already performed the miracle of uniting the Jewish people and the gentile people in the church. But this unification is brought about with His own blood and nothing else: “But now in Christ Jesus, you, who some time were afar off, are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For He is our peace, He has made the two peoples, Jews and Gentiles, one, breaking down with His body the wall that separated them: hatred. He has abolished the law with His commandments and rules, making peace, to create in Himself a new man. He reconciled the two peoples with God, uniting them in a single body by way of the cross, and giving death to hatred” (Eph.2, 13-16).

Therefore it’s absolutely impossible to confuse the peace of the Kingdom of Christ, with the false peace of the antichrist: only the blood of Christ can kill hatred thus making possible true human peace and unity.

When the false prophet makes himself known, he will not acknowledge that Christ is God, on the contrary, he will wish to put himself above Him pretending that he inspired Him. Much less will he acknowledge that Christ is really present in the Eucharist, the fountain of life and spiritual peace.

The false prophet will not preach holiness through the cross, but rather an immanent philanthropy and spirituality, based on the idea of humanising world structures by way of solidarity, tolerance and the promotion of a single universal neutral religiosity.

He will propose planetary wellbeing, a fraternal global harmony in which the history of salvation will be diluted, the God of Redemption ignored and the Resurrection of Christ unknown.

He will promise a heavenly beatitude in which good and evil fuse together in psychological balance which is transformed into supposed light, while nature, humanity and divinity are confused to pantheistically overcome the frontier that separates them.

He will pretend that in the past he inspired the different prophets, spiritual men and founders of religions that have existed adding that now he will start to be recognised by the world as the one all religions have been expecting.

The promoter of the false peace, the false prophet, will be a parody of Jesus Christ and he will try to falsify His return seven years before it happens.

His master, the antichrist, will be a Jew of the tribe of Dan who will fool the Jews themselves that he is the promised messiah, which is why it is fitting to remember the reproach made to them by Christ: “I came in my Father’s name and you did not receive me, but another will come in his own name, and him you will receive” (Jn. 5, 43).

The false prophet will try to deceive Christians by impersonating Christ Himself, parodying the Parousia: “Take heed lest any man deceive you, for many will come in my name saying I am the Christ, and they will fool many. For there shall rise up false Christs and false prophets, and they shall do signs and wonders so as to deceive, if it were possible, even the elect”. (Mk. 13, 5; 22).

He will also try to deceive the other religions, presenting himself as the Maitreya the Buddhists are expecting, the Iman Mahdi expected by the Moslems, the reincarnation of Krishna by the Hindus and the Messiah by the Jews.

Nevertheless, with everything, his “miracles” and his feigned love, his falsity and fraud will start to become manifest until he has nothing left but to support the cruel and perverse persecution of his lord, the antichrist.

We know from the Bible and the revelations of Fatima, that in the end the Immaculate heart of Mary will triumph and that the Kingdom of Jesus Christ will be accepted by the whole world. But first we will have the deception of the false peace.

When all the Irenicist fiction collapses, the only, authentic and eternal “Prince of Peace” will return, Jesus Christ, Our Lord. At that moment, Jesus will return to us, to those who have been faithful to the Magisterium, that which was temporarily taken from us: Peace. And He will say to us, as when He appeared in the midst of His disciples who were fearful behind closed doors after His apparent defeat on the Cross: “Peace be with you”. (Jn. 20, 26)
