The focus must be on ch 14 of The Apocalypse. And this description of the book helps to understand...

View all About the book.

Please see here: Plan and Preparation Guide. Also shown below on this page:

The following includes an account of the apparition, and which took place, with two recipients; Melanie and Maximin, at La Salette, in September 1846.
You can read the booklet via the above link. it includes a unique question. It is for both believers and non-believers. For paper copies please see Booklet page.
Or there is the shortened version; note that:

The following question (the question itself) which is unique to these last times of the world as we know it, is for secularists/non-believers to answer. But it is of interest to both believers and non- believers, as reflected in The full Booklet's task, and which is: To help non-believers to believe, and to believe that these are the very last times of the world as we know it. And to help those who already believe to understand that these are the very last times of the world as we know it.

n.b. Note that the primacy for all reading is what it has always been: The Bible! Always seek as a priority a Catholic Bible that has a traditional Catholic commentary. (Before Vatican II.)

The bigger picture is that these are the very last times of the world as we know it.

What is meant by “The Lord's Second Coming in Judgement”?

It means Our Lord as The Just Judge. As He Himself said:
_________

“But when the Son of Man shall come in his majesty, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory; and before him will be gathered all the nations,(Matt 25:31-46.)(Mk 13:24-30.)
_________

Our Lord also told us that the harvest would be reaped:
_________

“..the harvest is at the end of the world, and the reapers are the angels.” (Matt 13:39.) And St John, in The Apocalypse, tells us:

”And I saw, and behold, a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sitting like to a son of man, having upon his head a crown of gold and in his hand a sharp sickle.”(Apoc 14:14)
________

Does everyone need to be prepared?

Yes. Our Lord said that:
_______

“And then they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds with great power and majesty. And then he will send forth his angels, and will gather his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost parts of the earth to the uttermost parts of heaven.”(Mk 13:26-27.)
_______

And St John, in the Apocalypse, tells us as to how:
_______

“Behold, he comes with the clouds, and every eye shall see him.. (Apoc.1:7-8.)
_______

We ourselves must and be on: “The Sea of Glass” (Apoc. 15 )

Anticipated (focus of great attention): The 2030's(It must be emphasized that only God knows the exact time. But He has made much known for us. It is right to Plan and Prepare with urgency.)

Mankind's last times predicament (depleting in numbers) means that this last era cannot go on too much further into the century. Our Lord said that He would shorten the days for the sake of the elect (Mk 13:20.)

What is “The Apocalypse”?

Apocalypse is a Greek word meaning “revelation.” “The Apocalypse” is a divine revelation given to St John the apostle/the divine, who was shown future events that WILL happen: “....I will show you things that must come to pass hereafter...” (Apoc ch 4:1)

The Apocalypse is very powerful because of what it consists of. It sees the opening of the great scroll from “The throne” by the only one worthy to do so; “the Lamb;” Our Lord (Apoc. 5:1-4.) He breaks open its seven seals to reveal what were then future events. But which have now come to pass, so that we stand at the point we are now in the divine timetable.

Is The Apocalypse complex?

Yes; it reveals future events but also as their having come to pass, and with repetition(s) as to this, together with explanations as to their consequences. And it does this at various points which are often, but not always, in the same timeline sequence. It is set within a divine context, as reflected in its imagery. At some points we can glimpse things more clearly than others.

So how do we know where we are now?

Because of events that have already come to pass in history and which link to the Apocalypse to reveal where we are now to us. The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse provide for us our great clue. They are from the breaking open of the first four seals.

The first seal opened reveals the White Horse; he symbolizes the victory of Christ's Word. The second seal opened reveals the Red Horse; he symbolizes war. The third seal opened reveals the Black Horse; he symbolizes famine. (Apoc. 6:1-2 – 6:5-6.)

The famine in Europe in the nineteenth century was the subject of great attention during the apparition at La Salette. Why? Famine is not new to mankind by any means. In that same apparition was given a Secret: “the Secret of La Salette” which warned of the release of Lucifer (the devil) and a great number of demons from hell, in the year 1864 (secret 11) affirmed as being in incarnate (human) form (secret 12.) This Secret and warning corresponds with the breaking open of the fourth seal, and its aftermath.
______

The fourth seal opened reveals the pale green horse; “..and he who was sitting on it - his name is Death, and hell was following him.” (Apoc. 6:7-8.) This horseman symbolizes pestilence. What is “following him” is shown in chapters 8 and 9 . Chapter 9 begins:
______

And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet, and I saw that a star had fallen from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit, and there came up smoke out of the pit like the smoke of a great furness, and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit. And out of the smoke there came forth locusts upon the earth..(Apoc. 9:1-3.)
______

Just as the fallen star must be an individual; i.e. a living intelligent being (to have been given the key to open the bottomless pit with) so too the locusts are those whom live in the Abyss (to be released from) and from out of which they come. Locusts (the insect) do not [as such] live in the Abyss, demons do (as do imprisoned human souls.) Locusts are a descriptive term. Just as 'serpent' or 'snake' is the descriptive term used for Lucifer; the devil, in the garden of Eden. “Locusts upon the earth” means incarnate demons.

And this is the reality; ever increasingly since 1864! The final “flood” upon us is what mankind needs to awaken and be alert to in these very last days of the world as we know it. Alert means leading good, Faith-filled, steady, thoughtful lives, and not be led astray by the very many wrong influences that are all around.

How close are we now to Our Lord's Second Coming?

Very close! Only God knows the exact time, but in His great Mercy and Love He has made much known. The Apocalypse is our guide.

The fifth seal opened reveals the martyrs over the centuries. The sixth seal opened reveals an intense build-up period to Our Lord's Second Coming in figurative Biblical language, and culminates with:
______

“......hide us from the face of him who sits upon the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” (Apoc. 6:16-17.)
______

And so the focus of the whole of chapter 7 is on those who have overcome (those who will be able to stand.)

Chapter 8 begins with the opening of the final seal; the seventh seal, and, another build-up begins. Ch 8 gives a depiction of the fall of the angels in heaven; the third, and its effects (around a third of the angels fell) a third of the lights in heaven dimmed. And then the words: “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth”(Apoc 8:13) And then follows chapter 9, and the opening of the abyss.

Chapter 10 begins with much heavenly imagery, and St John is told that he must “prophesy again.” Then follows the intense, but far more detailed, build up to where we are now (we are in chapter 14.) This build-up comprises of chapter eleven, which shows figures of the Old and New Testament (together with Biblical imagery) and the prevailing and resoluteness of their words. Chapter 12 is a figure of the Church; The Old and New Covenant. Chapter 13 tells of “the beasts” and their ways. This can be interpreted as meaning increasingly placing the creature, man, before his Creator, God. The Beasts influence the wrong path of mankind And they are clearly associated, in chapter 13, with excess and extravagance.

Chapter 14 is a very intense build-up (we are well into ch 14) to Our Lord's Second Coming, which is at ch 14;14. We must have “overcome” and (be on the sea of glass (ch 15) in immediate preparation for the culmination of the great spiritual battle; Armagedon (ch16.) And when God will rid us of the final chastisement. And there is the harvest “reaping.” As I understand it, much will happen simultaneously. And much sparse land there will be! This is Biblical. This is epic. The Alpha and The Omega.

What does being on the “Sea of Glass” mean?

At Our Lord's glorious Second Coming we must be availed of His great Mercy, and be on “the sea of glass.” St John writes:
_______

And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who had overcome the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing on the sea of glass, having the harps of God and singing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and marvellous are thy works, O Lord God almighty; just and true are thy ways, O King of the ages. Who will not fear thee, O Lord, and magnify thy name? for thou alone art holy. For all nations will come and worship before thee; because thy judgements are manifested.” (Apoc; 15:2-4.)
_______

The Song of Moses (Deut. 3:21-43.) has a great focus on how we must Fear God. Give Him great glory. Show great gratitude to Him. The song of the Lamb is Our Lord's Victory. It is His triumph over death and hell. We must be joined with Him in His glorious resurrection from the dead. Be in His ways; teachings, and commands, Be in the way of Truth. THE Truth.

And so all focus is on overcoming in order to be on “the sea of glass.” The first commandment is always our great guide. And so too The Bible (of course) and traditional Catholic Church teaching. This our focus on God. He who created us and upon Whom All depends. And the commandments are emphasized in Apoc ch 14:12. We can look closely at a “route” to “the sea of glass” in the Apocalypse itself. It consists in the worship of God; giving great glory to God. In chapter 4 we find the following:
_______

And round about the throne are twenty-four seats; and upon the seats twenty- four elders sitting, clothed in white garments, and on their heads crowns of gold. And from the throne proceed flashes of lightening, rumblings, and peals of thunder; and there are seven lamps burning before the throne, which are the seven spirits of God. And before the throne there is, as it were, a sea of glass like to crystal....(Apoc:4:4-6.)
_______

And animated nature is before the throne:
_______

…And they do not rest day and night, saying, “Holy, holy, holy, the Lord God almighty, who was, and who is, and who is coming.” (Apoc:4:8.) …“Worthy art thou, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for thou hast created all things, and because of thy will they existed, and were created' (Apoc. 4:11.)
_______

And of Our Lord, “The Lamb”
_______

And I saw, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing, as if slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent forth into all the earth..(Apoc.5:6)...
….And every creature that is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth, and such as are on the sea, and all that are in them, I heard them all saying, “To him who sits upon the throne, and to the Lamb, blessing and honor and glory and dominion, forever, and ever.” And the four living creatures said, “Amen,”and the elders fell down and worshipped him who lives forever and ever. (Apoc. 5:13-14.)
______

Specifically, in chapter 7 St John wrote:
______

After this I saw a great multitude which no man could number, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and with palms in their hands. And they cried out with a loud voice, saying “Salvation belongs to our God who sits upon the throne, and to the Lamb.” And all the angels were standing round about the throne and worshipped God, saying, “Amen, Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength to our God forever and ever. Amen..”.And one of the elders spoke and said to me, “these who are clothed in white robes, who are they? And whence have they come?” And I said to him, “My Lord, thou knowest,” And he said to me, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation, and have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple, and he who sits upon the throne will dwell with them....(Apoc 7:9-17)
_______

The Seven gifts of God The Holy Spirit: WISDOM * UNDERSTANDING * COUNSEL * FORTITUDE * KNOWLEDGE * PIETY * FEAR OF THE LORD.

Our Lord God spoke to me from the sky at Ramsgate on March 5th 1992. He said:
______

“Trust, Tell The Truth
Walk Ten Feet Tall
Always Know Where
You Are Going”
______

And as I, Angela, have always described it, I felt over a hundred feet tall, and I felt as though I could have stepped across to France from the cliff top in two steps. This is 40 years before 2032, the date that many scholars believe will be exactly two thousand years since Our Lord's glorious resurrection from the dead and His Ascension into heaven. Forty years is the Biblical time of preparation and culmination; the flood waters were on the earth for 40 days (Gen 8:6) the Israelites spent 40 years in the desert (Jos.5:6.) Our Lord's 40 days period of fasting (Matt.4:1-2) the 40 days between Our Lord's resurrection and His Ascension(Acts 1:3.) 2032 could also be just before, in the same way as the Ascension is just before Pentecost. Of course only God knows when the exact time will be. But the 2030's is rightly anticipated (should be a profound focus of attention) to be the decade of Our Lord's glorious Second Coming in Judgement.

Plan and Prepare.

Mankind is in very great need. The greatest need. Please pray for direct help from God.

Please pray for the sign of the Son of Man (Matt.24:30.)

A Prayer.

Lord Jesus, from wherever I am in my life now,
guide me as to how I must be. So that on Your
Day, it will be my day, in You. Amen
