Fr Gobbi's Prophecy of the Chastisement of America



In his book To the Priests, Our Lady's Beloved Sons, Fr. Stefano Gobbi speaks of a great chastisement that is to befall humanity, and specifically mentions that the United States is to bear the brunt of this impending catastrophe:

Message 437:
15th November 1990
Malvern, Pennsylvania, USA.

"I announce to you that the hour of the great trial is on the point of arriving. The great trial has arrived for your country. How many times, as a concerned and sorrowing mother, have I endeavored to urge my children to follow the path of conversion and of return to the Lord. I have not been listened to. You have continued to walk along the way of rejection of God, and of His law of love. Sins of impurity have become ever more widespread, and immorality has spread like a sea which has submerged all things. Homosexuality, a sin of impurity which is against nature, has been justified; recourse to the means of preventing life have become commonplace, while abortions - these killings of innocent children, that cry for vengeance before the face of God - have spread and are performed in every part of your homeland. The moment of divine justice and of great mercy has now arrived.
You will know the hour of weakness and of poverty; the hour of suffering and defeat; the purifying hour of the great chastisement...

The great trial has arrived for all humanity. The chastisement, predicted by me at Fatima and contained in that part of the secret which has not yet been revealed, is about to take place. The great moment of divine justice and of mercy has come upon the world."

Fr. Gobbi is somewhat of a controversial figure, chiefly for making the purportedly failed prediction that the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary would occur at the turn of the millennium:

Message 532:

I confirm to you that, in time for the great Jubilee of the year two thousand, the triumph of my Immaculate Heart, which I foretold to you at Fatima, will come about and it will be brought about with the return of Jesus in glory to establish His Kingdom in the world.


However as I pointed out in the previous post Our Lady of Assiut (in which I argue that these apparitions in the year 2000 were directly connected to the prophecy of the Woman Adorned with the Sun in Rev 12), we may be able to rescue the above prophecy made by Fr Gobbi if we accept the various other prophecies which foretold that Satan would be cast out of heaven during this same time period, such as those of La Salette and Pope Leo XIII (see the earlier post The Year of the Dragon). In another of his messages, Fr. Gobbi appears to relate the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary to her defeat of Satan - the point when she crushes the Serpent's head and Satan is cast to earth by the Archangel Michael, as foretold in Rev 12:

Message 458:

I am a great sign of battle between Me and my Adversary, between the Woman and the dragon, between my army the army guided by the enemy of God. You are entering into the times of the desicive battle.
You are preparing to live through the most difficult hours and the greatest of sufferings. It is necessary that all of you come as quickly as possible to form part of my army. For this once again, I invite my children to consecrate themselves to my Immaculate Heart and to entrust themselves to Me as little children...
I am a sign of great victory.
I am the victorious Woman. In the end, the power of Satan will be destroyed, and I Myself will bind him with my chain and I will enclose him within his reign of death and eternal torment, from which he will not be able to get out...

The above message is analogous to the words of Sr. Lucia during her interview with Fr. Fuentes:

"Father, the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Blessed Virgin. And the devil knows what it is that offends God the most, and which in a short space of time will gain for him the greatest number of souls. Thus the devil does everything to overcome souls consecrated to God, because in this way the devil will succeed in leaving the souls of the faithful abandoned by their leaders, thereby the more easily will he seize them."
"That which afflicts the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Heart of Jesus is the fall of religious and priestly souls. The devil knows that religious and priests who fall away from their beautiful vocation drag numerous souls to hell. … The devil wishes to take possession of consecrated souls. He tries to corrupt them in order to lull to sleep the souls of laypeople and thereby lead them to final impenitence. He employs all tricks, even going so far as to suggest the delay of entrance into religious life. Resulting from this is the sterility of the interior life, and among the laypeople, coldness (lack of enthusiasm) regarding the subject of renouncing pleasures and the total dedication of themselves to God...
"Father, the Most Holy Virgin did not tell me that we are in the last times of the world, but She made me understand this for three reasons.
The first reason is because She told me that the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Virgin. And a decisive battle is the final battle where one side will be victorious and the other side will suffer defeat. Also, from now on we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the devil. There is no other possibility."
(see the full text here).

As I suggest in the book, and the post The "Fourth" Secret of Fatima?, the real reason the purported hidden part of the Third Secret may have been surpressed by the Church was because, like Fr. Gobbi, it may have mentioned an exact date pointing to the turn of the millennium in relation to the timing of the struggle between the Woman and the dragon. Therefore it is kept hidden because like the prophecies of Fr. Gobbi, it would be percieved by the public to have failed to materialise (when in fact it did - just that so far, it has simply went unnoticed).
Before I was aware of Fr. Gobbi's messages, I had already composed the chapters in my book which argued that the prophecy of the mark of the Beast and the fall of Satan occurred at the turn of the millennium, and that these events were heralded on earth by a series of astronomical and geophysical omens (see the post Signs in the Sky). So I was quite struck when I came across Fr. Gobbi's prophecy that the mark of the Beast would be implemented in a period of history beginning in 1998. As I point out in Unveiling the Apocalypse, this was just a year shy of the merging of cell phone technology with the worldwide web (www), with the introduction of the first internet enabled WAP phone. Since all future commerce will be conducted through cell phones via the www (which is the numerical equivalent of three sixes in Hebrew gematria), it seems that Fr. Gobbi was spot on with this date (see the posts Fr Gobbi on the Mark of the Beast and The Seal of God), and identfies the cell phone as the ultimate fulfillment of the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast. It was because of this striking conformity to my own conclusions that compelled me to include mention of this prophecy in the book - which generally steers clear of unapproved private revelations.
The mention of the return of Jesus in glory by Fr Gobbi in relation to the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary can probably be reconciled by the inclusion of the word "and" in this context (which I have highlighted above).  It is possible to interpret this statement as prophesying that the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary would take place in time for the Great Jubilee Year 2000 and that it would also be brought about at the Second Coming. If this is the case, it would mean that the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary would take place between two points in time - a period of time which began at the turn of the millennium with the casting of Satan from heaven to be confined to the earthly sphere (possibly in the person of the Antichrist - see the post The Fall of Satan which explains the difference between the primordial fall of Satan at the moment of creation, and the eschatological fall of Satan - which occurs towards the end of the world), and it would be brought to completion during the Second Coming - which remains at some point in the future away from the turn of the millennium. This would mean that the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary would take place over an extended period of time. A time period which would also encompass the era of the Second Pentecost before it would be brought to its ultimate fulfillment in the Second Coming of Christ, after which comes the period of the final tribulation.

It is worth noting that Fr. Gobbi relates the aforementioned prophecy of the coming chastisement of America to the Third Secret of Fatima. Yet there is no explicit mention of a chastisement in the text of the Third Secret that was published on 26th June 2000. This would seem to imply that the message of a coming chastisement would be found in the purported "hidden text" of the Third Secret which has yet to be revealed to the public, and which Sr. Lucia specifically stated encompassed chapters 8-13 of the Book of Revelation - a portion of the Apocalypse which includes the "great mountain, burning with fire" being thrown into the sea, and the prophecy of the mark of the Beast (see the earlier post The "Fourth" Secret of Fatima?).
However Fr. Gobbi would certainly have known of the alleged words of John Paul II concerning the Third Secret given at the Fulda conference in Germany, 1980:

"On the other hand, it should be sufficient for all Christians to know this: if there is a message in which it is written that the oceans will flood whole areas of the earth, and that from one moment to the next millions of people will perish, truly the publication of such a message is no longer something to be so much desired."
(see the earlier post John Paul II: The Third Secret and a Prophecy of a Mega-tsunami)

So could this have be the content of the Third Secret relating to a coming chastisement that Fr. Gobbi was alluding to? If so, it could explain the use of the phrase used by Fr. Gobbi in this prophecy (underlined above), which states that sin has spread in America like "a sea which has submerged all things". Does this phrase contain an insight into the nature of the chastisement that has yet to befall the United States? A "punishment to fit the crime" so to speak? If so, then it appears that this is yet another prophecy of the threat of a mega-tsunami which will devastate the eastern seaboard of America, caused by a volcanic collapse in the Canary Islands.

Fr Gobbi in 1992 claimed he was told by the Holy Mother that the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart hasn't been properly done.

Emmett O'Regan said...

That's interesting...
I've never really known what to make of whether the consecration was done as specified or not. There is a lot of conflict over this, and both sides make fairly good arguements.

Jamey said...

The biggest reason I find it hard to accept the consecration was properly done in 1984 is that the promised world peace didn't materialise. Also the abortion rate in Russia is amongst the highest in the world and was hovering at an insane 65% after the 84 attempted consecration and there was no conversion to Catholicism as one would expect from the wording.

http://www.johnstonsarchive.net/policy/abortion/ab-russia.html

Bob Sungenis has an excellent audio download that went into great depth about the 1984 consecration.

John Vennari mentions the power that the atheists and radicals seem to have nowadays. He then says can you imagine how much zeal they would have if they had the miracle of the sun backing them up. Evil forces seem in control of the governments, banks, media and education. We Catholics in general seem overwhelmed by everything that is taking place and most are in hiding, however available to us is the weapon from heaven!

"The least said, the most easily amended" - I do not know why the Church members make predictions about things that are ontroversial and not authorized by the Church.
In the eyes of lay people this is not right; if it ian't absolute fact, we do not want to hear predictions by those not confirmed or accepted by the Vatican. Anyone can make conjectures. It is reminiscient of fortune telling.

Jamey said...

Anon, not sure if you are referring to Emmett's work or Fr Gobbi's predictions.

If in regards to Emmett's work, there is a good deal of logic and scholarship behind it and as such it isn't in the realm of fortune telling.

Emmett O'Regan said...

Anon,

If you believe that the laity are forbidden from discussion of non-church approved private revelations, then you are quite mistaken. All private revelations are left to the personal discernment of the faithful, and we do not have to accept even those which are Church-approved. When the Church approves a private revelation, it highlights that these are the most worthy of belief - not that all others should be rejected. All private relevations are at some point in their lives "non-approved", and if nobody was allowed to discuss them, then there wouldn't be any "Church approved" private revelations - because no one would know about them! Also I have went into discernment of private revelations on an earlier post, which I'm sure most of the regular readers of this blog are aware of:
http://unveilingtheapocalypse.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/discerning-apparitions-and-private.html
Prophecy is meant to be interpreted - otherwise it would be a bit pointless... And attempts to make sense of what they may mean is certainly not "fortune telling" - which is the use of occult magic to manipulate preternatural powers in an attempt to reveal the future.
In the words of St. Paul:
"Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good".
(1 Thess 5:19-21)

The Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary was not done but a Consecration of the World to the Immaculate Heart of Mary was done in its stead. Apparently some higher ups in the Vatican have convinced several Popes that the Consecration of Russia would offend the Metropolitan and the Communists. They are afraid of the ramifications. This indicates the sin of Pride wherein they feel that they are in a better position to know what to do than to follow the explicit and specifice instructions of Our Lady. Can you believe it!

Fatima, Hope of the world
Apocalyptic Vision

O Woman, clothed with the sun
the moon under Your feet
You, in Whom Salvation begun
O Mary, Mary name so sweet

O heart so full of smarts
come defeat our self-conceits
renew our ungrateful hearts
O Gateway that to Jesus leads

O dearest Mother, Virgin pure
upon your children blessings shower
against the devil most effective cure
O come to annihilate satan's power

O sing with us a whole new song
of Unity and Godly Peace
Awaiting your Triumph all along
O help us fulfill the Heavenly pleas.

Rita Biesemans, Fatima May 13 1987

Emmett I LOVE your writings. Be very blessed !!

You know the recent "Sandy" storm in America, maybe that's a precursor of the "mega-tsunami" mentioned in this article?

Emmett O'Regan said...

A lot of people have been suggesting this. It certainly looks like some sort of precursory sign. The recent appearance of the tsunami-shaped clouds over the east coast of the US also seems somewhat prophetic in character:

u r all kindly requested to visit the
following site and read it very carefully, and would like to have
ur comments about it, its contents r very important and make a lot of sense regarding the events we r living:
pierre2.org

winno said...

I have to say that there are many approved prophecies of the Catholic Church and it would be more important to read these and take guidance from them.
Remember Our Lord said that towards the end, there would be many false prophecies from the abyss in order For Satan to turn souls away from God.
Although the contents of these prophecies may seem ok and genuine in their sayings. Unless you are experienced in how these are interrpreted by the Church as true, then you should err on the side of caution and not follow them. If you believe that Evil has entered the Church (as Our Lord predicted) Then it could be conceivable that through this evil, the allowance of people to follow prophpecies who have not been accepted by the Church makes it easy for Satan to win souls without having to work too hard. Until the Local Bishop approves these locutions/Visions, then it is always proper to err on the side of Caution.

I read enough of www.thewarningsecondcoming.com to say it should be avoided. The supposed seer is anonymous and I find major problems with some of the statements made in the messages. By all means, pray the rosary and the devine mercy chaplet, but stay away from these messages.

#1. If the seer remains anonymous then no church official can claim jurisdiction and make a ruling.

#2. The grants of plenary indulgences for prayers would tend to pull people away from the sacraments as no longer necessary for forgiveness of sin.

#3. The cannon of scripture is closed so this "book of truth" cannot be placed on a par with the scriptures.

#4. It is God that rebukes Satan not Michael the Archangel as alluded to in a particular message.

#5. The birth of Mary is celebrated on Sept 8 not August 5th. See 8/4/2011 message.

I have to come down on this site as unreliable say best.

Emmett O'Regan said...

I agree, especially given the fact that she teaches that Pope Francis is the False Prophet - which means that anyone who takes heed of her messages are now officially in schism with the Roman Catholic Church, and cannot receive the Sacraments.

watch and pray regarding thewarningsecondcoming website.

these prophecies are much in line with scripture and other approved apparitions. condsider the world we now live in.

Regarding the blessed Mother's birthday: Are you aware in Medjugorgie the same was revealed regarding the true date. Here is something more to consider: When Padre Pio received the stigmata, it was on Sept. 8th (when her b'day is liturgically celebrated. The side wound came later for him, and that date was August 5th (The date Our Lady gave years later as her genuine b'day). Also, consider for a moment, if the revelations given to MariaDivineMercy are true, be aware that she suffers greately. Please pray for her whatever you believe.

I forgot to mention another point regarding the indulgence of absolution. On this site, it mentions that it is not a substitue for confession for Catholics. It is a prayer for nonCatholics. Any non-Catholic who believes would certainly come to desire the alternative (time permitting in this realm)
Remember that Our Lord himself instituted the indulgence attachedto the Divine Mercy Sunday through St. Faustina (before that devotion became 'approved' This is frequently how things work.

Also, read the book of Daniel..and Revelation (I assume you already have). Our Lord speaks of the book of Truth. I always assumed this was the bible. But the bible had not yet been put together. After reading it again, you'll see that Our Lord told Daniel (and also in Revelation) that these things were 'sealed up' and were for the end times. And that only He Himself was worthly to undo the seals. None of these messages would have made sense centuries ago. They speak to our time.

Consider John leary also, I know him to be a very himble and devout man. What our Lord reveals to him is in line with Maria Divine Mercy's messages as far as I can see.

Beside all of this,please hear me I am given to much prayer, this does not make me a saint but please hear me. Many times I have been awakened in the night with a voice..or sometimes directly in prayer itself and what is said to me coincides with the messages of Maria Divine Mercy. Whether you believe or not, please pray for me as well. I suffer greatly for this because no one is willing to hold conversations on the matter. +JMJ+ I consider it a grace that this site is open to my thoughts.

This will be my last post. I urge all to read the book: AA-1025 Everyone who calls himself Catholic needs to read this book.
You will understand the Masonic influence in the church in the last 100 yrs. You will better understand the prophecies of Garabandal, LaSalette, Fatima, etc.
More importantly, you will understand how subtle changes led to big changes which put us where we are today. Now that I know how the other side thinks, it would indeed be possible for Masonic influences to infiltrate to the highest levels. Remember it was the poor who voted Hitler into office, who wanted Communism (initially) in Russia, who voted Chavez into office, etc..
Politicians and Hierarchy alike can easily manipulate the public by their love and concern for the poor. That is why I say watch and pray. We will know in our lifetime if these revelations are true or not because if they are: we will see (1) a change in the Mass and (2)the Eucharist, and (3)the doing away with sexual sins. It will be very clear to all then. I find myself in constant prayer since coming into these revelations. If Satan is laughing at me because they are false, God alone knows my heart and will still use my prayers. God Bless and Watch and pray. When in prayer, only God has access to your heart. Satan can study you, but he does not have your heart. Remember also that true prophets are despised, spat upon as Christ was. We would do well to pray hard for those who claim revelation. +JMJ+

Well the jury is still out on Medjugurje as far as I am concerned as well. However, I am not empowered to say that the MDM messages are not real or of divine origin. They make me uncomfortable in spirit and I think they should be avoided until ruled upon. Unfortunately, I don't see how a ruling could ever come down on them since the origin of them seems to be anonymous. I appreciate your attempts to clarify some of the problems I see. I will keep those concepts in mind.

I have read AA-1025 and I agree that the church has been infiltrated. No doubt. All churches and religions have been infiltrated. You don't get a world like we have without evil influences having permeated all walks of life and all institutions. In fact, I'll go a step further and state that the World Council of Churches was established for the sole purpose of finishing off all major religions.

But here's the thing... Christ has promised to be with his church. We have to discern what that promise entails. Is he referring to a Eucharistic presence or an institutional presence. Our Lord uses strong language in relation to the institution of his Church upon the Rock. I tend to believe he will not abandon the Papacy, for if he does, authority will need to be re-established and that would require a Heavenly Intervention.

Time will tell. I think we are on the cusp of re-unification in the Christian World and it makes sense to me that false prophecy would abound at this time in a last ditch attempt to further splinter Christianoty to the point of making re-unification more difficult or impossible to accomplish. That, would be the diabolical plan in my opinion.

Let's pray on it.

There was a time when you would not have followed or told it was ok to follow apparitions that were not approved by the Church. The rule that allows you to do this now could very well be the work of Satan as he already has his Cohorts in the Church. It would be so Easy to send the faithful into the trap of disobedience against the local Bishop and his rulings. I have no time for those who wish to remain annonymous. God does not do his work in Secret nor has he ever done so. Sorry but these annonymous seers are making money on the desperation of the faithful who want to know when the end will occur. If you look at the true seers of the Church going back hundreds of years, you will see that 99% of them went into religious life or suffered tremendously for Jesus Christ because of the love they had for him. They were also given revelation that could easily be read by anyone who looks them up and would know just what Our Lord said. All i am saying is: why be annonymous?. As for Medjugorie: I truely believe that this is one of the biggest scams to date. Not one of the seers went into religious life, on the contrary they live a very lavish lifestyle in the name of God. Does'nt make sense. They have been disobedient to the Local Bishop when ordered to cease in their messages. In fact they said Our Lady told them to ignore the Bishop. This cannot be true, because Our Lord himself when he was told by those to whom he appeared, that the Bishop ordered them to cease what they were doing, Our Lord told them to obey. This was deliberate of Jesus Christ because he knows that his word being true would eventually be accepted. He also loves obedience. He knows that Satan cannot be obedient, and will do everything to win souls as he does not have much time to do this. So when the seers ignore the local Bishops and make excuses as to why they are being disobedient (even blaming the Bishop), the chances are they are not from God. Our Lord said that the false Prophets would come from the Abyss like swarms of flies towards the end. We should listen to his word as he is trying to tell us what we should do as i believe some of these modern visionaries will lead a lot people on the wide road instead of the narrow road

Thankyou for your strength and commitment to the Messages given to Maria in the Book of Truth. I am so heartened to see that in random blogsites, the Messages are being discussed and in most cases supported. Once the Warning manifests, we will see conversion in the multi millions. Please everyone, use the knowledge you are given in your faith and keep your eyes and hearts open for any event in the Church or on the earth that seems out of the ordinary and ask yourselves the questions that good faith education should give you the answers to. Our Church will experience Her Crucifixion. Jesus is gathering His True Remnant throughout the world in preparation for His Second Coming. We are the generation chosen, spoken of in Scripture. Not much longer to wait. Peace to all and may God Bless each one of us on this imminent journey.

Given everything that is taking place in the world today, I do believe we are receiving chastisement from God. I do wish that Pope Francis would consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. That is the only way for us to have peace in our times. Pope JPII consecrated the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Today we face many problems with Russia in political conflicts. It is very troubling to me as a Roman Catholic to watch the world quarrel with Russia and know that it must be Consecrated immediately to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I pray for peace and for the intentions of The Virgin Mary and ask that all of you may pray the rosary every day. May God Bless you.
